Ep 476 - Moon Quest (Choose Your Own Adventure), by Anson Montgomery

"This is a head gum. Podcast while andrew and craig believe the joy of discovery is crucial to enjoying any well told tale. They will not shy away. From spoiling specific story beats when necessary. Plus these are books. You should have read by now. Hey everybody welcome to overdo. It's a podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. My name is craig. My name's andrew. Happy memorial day. You happy memorial day. Everyone everybody knows. Every year here on overdue we'd do a big memorial day. Celebrations are annual memorial day sale. Every podcast is fifty percent off. Every podcast must go. What can we do or say to get you in this podcast. Today gas go home in this contrive. You could drive this podcast off the lot today. But you're not allowed to drive first. You have to just get in it and go. No test drives here. This is our podcast. Where normally we read a book for the first time. Talk about it and like why. It's supportive stuff and there's sometimes we do a different one. We're i mean we're gonna talk about why this is important. I'm sure it's going to be. It's going to be different kinds of important. What book are we talking about this week. Andrew we're talking about the choose your own adventure book moon quest by anson montgomery in the numbering of the one that i've got. It's twenty six. But i think in the original series numbering it's higher than that is a number one sixty seven so moon quest as you said is by anson montgomery. The son of ray r a montgomery now wouldn't wouldn't you know it. The biography of him in the back of the book does not mention that does not mention that. This book should be called nepotism. Okay interesting that's what that so. That's one of my big questions going in like one of two questions one. Do we get to the moon into. We have a quest on it like we have a kind of a mixed track record in doing the thing. That's on the cover of the book. Do these Question number two can answer. Montgomery hackett is he. Does he succeed on his own merits or is he just riding his dad's he choosing to ride his dad's coat tails. And that's yes. We shall find out i can tell you as we said Virtually published in nineteen ninety-six. It was republished by choose co in two thousand and eight. that's how it has the new number Website and all that all that fancy two thousand eight yes Web two point zero not web. No point oh which is where we are right now Book from his good reads bio. I can tell you that montgomery went to williams college with a degree an ancient history and worked in technology related companies before being a freelance journalist and then authored four books in the original. Choose your own adventure series of adventure snowboard racer moon quest which are talking about today in cyber hacker as well as a few other multi part series lives in vermont with his family. I did find an interesting interview. Cbc canadian broadcasting corporation radio interview tha-that he did with in two thousand fifteen and the reason he was. He was doing a press tour in two thousand fifteen. He was originally slated to write the very last original bantam. Run choose your own adventure book. Called today from the haunted warehouse did not work out it. Never it was never published and in the interview he talks about people claiming that they'd read it. Banned had put out a press release but it never made it past like even initial drafting and he They brought him back like choose co or whoever brought him back to write it in twenty fifteen so you can tell when he thought he was out. Yes it was like it was. I think they probably decided to do it. After his father passed in two thousand fourteen so they asked him to come back. And write this book And so we're we're had others been keeping the that torture burnin bef- before that like i feel like two thousand. Fifteen is pretty well. He was for the regular release of the original. Choose your own adventure run. It was the fact that they had like. I think someone had found some pre publication materials and drafts. And they said oh. This book never came out. We should actually do it and we should get in touch with anson. Have him out like okay. In the meantime choose co had already re launched the brand right obviously so we have the two thousand eight edition of yes in class right here and it's a it's a good interview should as google. Cbc radio anson. Montgomery you'll find this really nice little ten minute interview that talks about his dad starting the series and how his dad unpaid labor out of his sons making them making them play test his books and just kind of fun. I mean when you're a kid though knows when your parents are making okay. If a like a an overseer in a coal mine is making you do the work and not paying you and you're a kid that's unpaid labour. While you have parents are making you do work. And you're a kid that is you've been paid for that speaking as a parent. I see where you're coming from. And i will know how expensive baby snacks if i if i could get my kid to help me. Rectus juice own adventure book. I'm going to do it. He did say here's this interesting takeaway like the interview closes with the interview being like. So what are you like. Did you take any lessons from this series as you became an adult. Like what do you think is valuable about these books. Your dad clearly devoted his life to them etc and he said it's good to know that not everything is a happy ending. There are times of conflict and pain. But if you keep reading you're gonna get somewhere better. This pretty like looks good. Like hey this is you can experience failure in these books as turn the page man. Her just like bob seger said. Turn the page. Sometimes in books there's a bad ending the and there's no book to read it. You can't keep reading till it gets better because that just has a bad and then you just get another book. There's always another book that's true that's true all right. We almost read all of them. Yeah by now cast really weird. Surely we're getting close to the end. There's probably only five hundred bucks ever will read all of them. Do you want to lay out if if people have never listened to one of our choose your own adventure episodes before. How are we going to do this. What are the rules. If there even are any. Help me out. Craig and i both own. Where the proud owners of a of a pristine crisp new copy of moon quest. Yup and we have not cracked the spine on this before now except to check and make sure that we do indeed have the same printing But we are going to be reading. The book allowed. We're going to do the voices. Yup we're going to make the choice. And where do the voices make choices. And we're going to make some noises. We're gonna read this book to you and we're going to try and make it through. We're gonna try and make it out alive. We'd informally usually try to give ourselves like three endings or three lives. Depending on how long we go yet you know we play it by ear. Usually the goal is to get it inside of an hour or an hour and ten minutes. Yeah and we are allowed to put our fingers in a page to bookmark for later. So if we meet an untimely death or if we don't make it to the moon or if we don't have a quest we can come back and we can see what would have happened the other the other way. Yes at all that makes sense to me. That sounds like how we've done it so glad that there are no surprises. Not this time not this time. You always hate it when i try to surprise you and we do. Our book podcast. Let's just talk about the cover of this book real quick original cover or do you. Now i do not know mentions the illustrations in our addition our by vladimir's miana who was born in august nineteen sixty four in the republic of davy of the former. Ussr went to college there Olivia sounds like the fake country. They make up for netflix. Christmas mean to a whole republican people. Sure i i know what you mean. It is unfortunate that many of those name sounds so similar in english language. Yeah so the illustrators from via and let's usually there's not a lot like other stuff happening in this so the covers like space man with holding some kind of a cord and sort of as a as a source horribly. When you go for a spacewalk the tether is to your belt and this space person this guy's just kinda hanging is free swinging We the moon is there. There might be like a city or at least as a lab In the arts and the like the domes from crummy trigger it does look like the current trigger domes and the earth is in the background a very western hemisphere centric depiction of earth. I'm only seeing. We are on earth on earth's moon bad and there appears to be a big storm happening in you know above the arctic right now but i'm won't factor into our story here so if you crack the spine batboy got kids. Love reading shoes run adventure and you can tell this is so ra modern take because this is four matic to look like a text message exchange. Little speech bubbles. I love these books. Because i get to read them. More than once says jade age ten year. I didn't die. It was so fun. I felt like i had turned into a werewolf. I don't know if that's going to happen in this. These feel like maybe there about the series and not about the book specifically. I think the books are really eventful and fun. I am still alive. So far says in at age nine to still alive so still alive so far who i like that you can choose so if you want to choose something you can do. It has college ten. Oh man and then if you go to the i mean you flip you see alternate cover art with some astronauts like climbing a mountain column. Yeah you've got a list of other titles choose your own adventure series now. If you go to the back you will find fun. Moon and solar system facts. Oh wow oh like the moon has had twenty four human visitors that we know of minerals of of how we know hope added that we know it just seems presumptive. There's an and it goes through all the all. The moons of some of the moons of the solar system is how the pages clearly labeled. So i shouldn't say all but there are a lot of the other moons represented here people. This is on the last page minerals of the moon. Could we mind minerals. We need her on earth from the moon elon. Musk would say the answer is yes but it would take special tools and processes and indentured servitude. Some real blade runner stuff would have to go on there. I think it's so dumb for our moon. That like mars has like phobos. jupiter has your rope. and saturn has high period. And you're in has to taint titania and our moon is called the moon. Well okay job name. Let's give her a moon a cool name. Okay i want okay. I've i liked that argument. I was gonna come back with the very pedantic. now listen we named moon moon. It was the very first moon that we ever met so we just called it moon. We the moon which also is its own kind of problematic because other kind there's other moons we call earth planet. We're really offensive to the moon. I hadn't thought about that. Well should we call it. Is there like a term in a different luna is just mood like that's not affection like this one is better than just regular moon. I guess but. I'm just i if we are scientists. Listen probably so scientists. If you're out there could you maybe get a flashier name for the moon. Just put some razzle-dazzle on it hype rock. Yes like a party rock party. Rock hardy rock. You could call it. The party ride already rock. They listening to alabama. Theo and black eyed peas on party. Check this gone on long enough. Let's get into the book. I will read the beware and warning page and then andrew will take over with the first part of the story. Absolutely i will. It says beware in warning. This book is different from other books. You and you alone are in charge of what happens in this story. There are dangers choices. Adventures and consequences. You must use all your numerous dallas and much of your enormous intelligence much. Wrong decision could end in disaster even death but don't despair eight you can go back and make another choice alter the path of your story and change its result. Your home is a young nation on the moon called tyco colony. You live work and go to school beneath glass dome facing the earth. You're excited to be among the first humans living and tyco colony but that doesn't mean it will be easy whether you scavenge the far side for signs of alien life or brave. The moons. Dark inner tunnels. Good luck to you. All right andrew. Where we're a member of tyco collins sets the stage. Yeah all right. I page we've got an illustration by our moldavian friend It is a. it's the moon colony. Were walking around in space suits in sort of a nice shiny looking like a sort of all like outdoor in the mall. We're going to go to dollar tree and get. Some milk duds sneak into the movie theater. Yeah and there's like some vegetation. There looks nice yes. He looks like a mall. That looks like a mama. It looks nice but then right on the other side of the dome from the vegetation. There's moon craters to show to show his the to show that we're on the moon and not in newport new jersey correct. Okay page one. The year is twenty three. And you're living in the moon. Your home lies underground. Cut from the cold rock. You've lived your whole life on luna the moon's official name. Oh well well. Your parents were born on earth where humanity originated laid that but they joined an elite group of moon dwellers before you were born earthlings are stuck where they started you're moving out to explore the universe each year the connie in which you live called the taiko colony grows larger more and more people come to live here permanently. Most of the new arrivals are scientists but many are just ordinary people doing ordinary jobs with over one hundred thousand people living on living. The economists expanded beyond that of mere research base. Also the recently established mars colony has created a boom in the manufactured goods shipping business the idea of declaring independence from earth nations as growing quickly as the population. Whoa home moon. Separatists psycho colony is made up of tunneled rock and large class domes. Most people live in the old tunnels but a few have moved into one of the main commercial centers in big dome. You don't understand why anyone wanna leave the tunnels underground seems to you like the natural place to live. Turn to next page. This is some amazing moon building. The some good world billing. Yes okay. Unlike your parents you try to stay out of lunar politics. Stick to stick the mood mom and dad. Both your parents are avid advocates. lunar independence. Party the party trying to gain self rule for the moon and wound determine the earthlings. They argue have little understanding of the conditions on the moon. To further complicate matters over twenty independent earth nations claimed dominion over various aspects of the cali. That would be problematic. Actually it would be Often one nation one thing and another wants the opposite that is an diplomacy to me. The moon colonies would not survive without trade with the mother planet. And of course all your favorite television programs come from earth. Even your parents like to watch earth sports from time to time especially if they get a chance to make fun of earthling burdened by gravity. Attempting to make successful slam dunk a basketball championship. Michael jordan owes. You should be on the moon michael jordan. The fourth can't dunk in space right now. You're not thinking politics or sports. You have other worries on your mind. Not only do you have to finish studying for your final school exams. You must wrap up an important project for one of your jobs. You suppose that people on earth would consider going to school working two jobs and living in an artificially constructed a maintain environmental odd. But it is the only life you've ever known go on to the next. Is june twenty first. The first day of summer. You can hardly wait. Summer and winter are pretty much the same on the moment. Earthlink tradition of summer vacation from school continues on luna looking through the meter. Thick extra durable blister glass at the landscape outside. It looks pretty much the same all the time you know of snow and trees changing leaves from the books and old movies before the ice caps melted on earth. One could always see some white on the blue planet but when it's winter on earth you can see white from snowfalls in their northern hemisphere. Right now. the sun is shining. The only colors you see are black white and grey. There's no atmosphere to make the sky any other color. The black of outer space and the sun burns and crackles with a life impossible to see from earth. Since each lunar day lasts about two weeks there will be another ten days or so. Some might where you live. What are you doing voice asks. This will be normal voice turning around this is page four. You see your good friend and constant reality checker to meal nothing really. I was just thinking how living in the moon makes us different. Well snap out of it. Dreamer demille says with a smile. Don't you ever wonder about how your life might have been completely different. You ask sure. I do but not when i'm busy cramming for calculus finals. Two meals size. Some of us are just lowly mortals not super brains. Who can studying daydream at the same. Time checking your wrist. You quickly glance at the watch that your earthling grandfather's twenty fifty. Three superiority complex is developed very quickly. The antique gadget actually has hands. It's so fragile that an accidental bump could easily destroy it. But you like it anyway. let's jet or will miss the exam have to spend all summer making it up her page said. Would you like to describe this image andrew. While i make note that our main characters voices like sort of a john laney child. Yeah like an sort of enthusiastic sort of voice. I yeah. I feel like i'm channeling. John molina's imitation of himself as a child. Just like okay. Yeah sure so. We are looking at two people talking to each other. It's a. I assume we are the one with the hood up so that we can imagine ourselves in the shoes of this character. I will say like many. Choose your books in the original run and maybe this is something that they changed for this for this printing but many made it pretty implicitly. Clear that you were like a twelve year old boy specifically and i appreciate that so far. There's been no Indication one way or any other way out that yeah we just we could be who we are in the context of this moon colony. Yes and we're talking to our friend To meal we we all have a cool moon. Headband also they have a cool moon. Headband also both of us have a moon pocket on our belt. That looks like it could hold a cigarette. Is i was gonna say it. Looks like it holds our moon figure. It's probably for something else you know. Maybe it's for moon cigarettes. Okay turn to page seven. Okay here we go. Yeah i mean it's just you just turn the page up to you Size again and without saying a word reaches out and grabs the right hand tow rope strung along the low ceiling of the passageway to school. Suddenly he is halfway down the corridor when the coal colony was first established there noto ropes in the passageways and owing to the moons lower gravity people often hit their heads on the ceilings dangling by your arm for awhile does not strain you. Wait only twelve kilos. Twenty six pounds for the americans among yes. Your mass always fifty kilograms both here on earth but everything is about six times heavier on the big planet after six quarter switches and four level changes. You make school. You look at your watch again. You still have three minutes. Spare you deposit your backpack in your locker and head toward the testing booths. Each student takes his or her own. Individual booth shuts the door. As soon as the door is closed. The computer simulation begins although you know that the person across from us the is only a computer generated hologram. He's still find yourself reacting as if he were real good morning. A warm deep male voice begins as the figure looks up from a stack of holographic books. The face nods up and down slightly as the voice speaks is a typical man's face but the hologram gives the space. It is a typical man's face. The hologram gives us skin slightly. Greenish tint police. Prepare yourself for today's exercise. We will be discussing in evaluating your progress in learning. The theories developed by sir. Isaac newton okay onto the next big gravity gravity gravity. We describe what two meals doing this yet. Camille cigarette pack with is wherein some cool moon on their feet and his swinging on the tow rope unclear from this illustration like the direction of the swinging. It seemed from the language that we were going down into school. We're going over and up. Oh well i mean level. Changes could be either way. Yeah i don't really know. Yeah six quarters which is in four level changes. I liked the idea that you can like swing around the moon. I hadn't thought about that. Yeah i like that. We're going that we're talking about gravity on this test. Okay all right two hours later. You feel like you've been interrogated by the secret police in a bad movie at least now. The deal is over. You think you did okay but before you have time to settle down and collect yourself you. Get your grade back grudge relations. You have passed with a grade of ninety seven percent. You are eligible for highest honors and special placement in the summer scientific core. Let's go to the podium. Park to meal says enthusiastically when you meet him onyx onyx. Oh like hydroponic hydroponics. Okay let's go to the park to meal says enthusiastically when you meet him outside the boots. I need to see some green after that stressor. Emma said she was going thereafter her exam. You agree that the hydroponics park is just the place to go. Even though you love the moon would not want to live anywhere else. Sometimes you feel the need to get away from the artificial reality of your man new. Your man made surroundings and the inhuman sterility of the surface. The part is a large underground cavern. Where much of the tako colonies food and are produced rows and rows of tomatoes beans corn zucchini and countless other vegetables reach upward toward the bright artificial sunlight burning and strips along the ceiling. The plants grow long stringy in the week. Gravity of the moon but they taste pretty much the same as vegetables imported from earth. That's a weird like i'll just allowing skinny carrot on until affected by earth's magic potato not burdened. by earth's gra burying would actually be lohman. It would be a spear grass. Yeah next page short stay. In one section to the cavern. An art official stream runs along the ground and real trees reach up to the ceiling. Heavy vines hang from the canopy of trees. Perfect swinging perver- for swinging from when the scientists and gardeners aren't looking. It's your favorite place to go and you need to relax after you. I brought to meal there. He kept coming back and now just to bug. You insists he discovered it. There's also a place where you both classic to me. Classic demille this is also the place where you both met emma burns the three of you. Spend a lot of time in the politics park. Turn the next page in smoking up upon her the trees are tall and thin branches. Leap out from the trunk in a dance of brown and green. You've seen pictures of trees on earth and they look stumping and short compared to these wonders of mike gravity strict quarantine controls of succeeded in keeping most common diseases and pests from harming the vegetation. Even this part of the biggest hydroponics facility on the moon. There are only about one hundred trees. Mostly maple spruce and birch those enough for. That's deal. i don't care. If i never meet at three dimensional end space that needs to have its volume discovered again to meal. Says you plunk down at the base of green tinged poplar so come on tell me what was your great genius. I passed you say to me. It looks pleased thinking your silence means. He got the better grade before he can pressure you any further your rescued by emma's arrival. Hey guys don't look so sad. Some you she says she pops down to live you. Did you want your exam to something. Go to spayed. Keep it going. Can you give me us again. Us is like I'll just do this next line for you. What are you going to do for the summer. What are you going to do for the summer. He asked her two friends ignoring his question. I don't know. I guess i'll help my dad carve out tunnels from workspace and i'm supposed to help fix those solar collectors over in the middle of the basin to meal replies. How about you. i'm not sure mature guy. Jobs have been pretty slow lately. No ships the tourists and the geology lab hasn't yet told me if they want me to go on the expiration trip to the other side. The far side could be really cool. Emma says when will you find out. Turn a page. Thirteen so emma there's an illustration here. It looks like emma into meal. I don't know where you are. I think we're the hooded figure standing in the back. Okay sure an emma. Emma has some big earrings and a cool top. Not she's like jersey shore like honestly. Yeah it's a little. It's like combine arianna guerande with jersey shore. And you're in this cooled. Geodesic dome with some plants Hopefully today you say as you hear a loud beep from two meals. Wrist com to be a punches in the access code to retrieve the information he reads the display for a few seconds. Before turning to you. it's for you says with a dramatic cy. I wish you would wear that beautiful mark four. Calm your dad gave you last year. It seems like the only transmissions. I get our for you enough of the pity party more info. Emma says leaning over to read the display looking. The back lit zoo. These was apple watches right. Is that what this is. Okay i guess looking at the back of the display you discover that there are actually two who messages for you. One is from the geo lab asking. If you'd like to come on the exploration mission the others from your boss out show telling you that a special diplomatic ship from earth is scheduled to arrive this afternoon. He wants you to guide the bigwigs around for a few days both messages contain apologies to meal. For the info the info te rusian trish apologies to me over the info as well as plans for immediate response a moment ago. You had no idea what you're doing for the summer. Now you have to make a choice. You've never been to the far side but would also be exciting to show the diplomatic mission from earth. Around what should you do andrew. If you decide to go on the mission of the far side of the moon turn the next page if you want to act as a tour guide. Turn to page thirty right. I'm very excited to make our first choice of the book. But i i think we need to take a break okay. Co side of the moon. spoiler a andrew craig. Sometimes i need help making the choices that are presented to me in life. Boy i wish somebody out.

Are you going to be a tour guide for visitors from the big planet as we referred to it earlier. i mean. This isn't actually choice right like yet do could do. I want to be A college tour guide. Or do i want to go now. Listen far reaches of the moon. I wanna be some huge stupid nerd. Who gives college door now. Speaking as someone who gave college tours let him shoot. I forgot let me say they. You're making the right choice. But you sound michael j. fox that time but i never gave him a tour. I saw that he was gonna get one. I made choices. Yeah we're going to the far side of the notion of gary. Larson is over some chickens and cows and stuff. Let's go Normally you would jump at the chance to guide people especially diplomats around some of your favorite spots but the opportunity to go on an extensive extensive research mission is too good to pass up. The mobile operation will be exploring some of the old volcanoes mountains and fault zones that give luna its geographic personality and quirks. Even though you'll be worth professionals you know. There's a certain amount of danger working outside far from any well established habitation zone. You run the risk of injury or worse still all that you can think about is being involved in important research. There are also rumors about strange beings. Live on the far side. Of course you do not believe them most of the time. So you're so you're going to the far side to meal says stressing the word far. How did you know we just made up my mind easy. That's what i would have chosen to. Meal says with a smile. Besides i had a fifty percent chance of being right classic to heal classics meal. You head back to your home. Tunnels making a mental list of what you'll need to bring the research equipment will be taken care of by the expedition manager. You get out your no pressure suit. You'll need it for exploring lunar surface in a well-rehearsed routine you carefully. Check the suit for holes and wear spots. I guess i'll just keep on the shiny material stiff brittle but you know it's durable. We'll have to withstand extremes of heat and cold that characterized the lunar weather and the jagged rocks that make up much of the landscape. The entire suit ensemble is amazing. The helmet was truly a piece of taco logical mastery. A polarized glass visor allows you to go from pitch dark declaring sunshine while retaining perfect field of vision miniaturized controls for a wide range of functions nestled comfortably next to the wearer's head silvery material that forms. The body of the suit is laced with control nodes connected to the helmet is feels like an infomercial for this suit specifically and then there's a drawing of the cold spacesuit helmet next page. Okay all you have left to pack our toiletries and clothes. You also remember to get out your wrist com. It's directional finder which is hooked up to a satellite network will come in handy. If you get lost on the lunar planes you also download your geology texts and a few books you have been meaning to read onto your wrist calm now. You just have to tell your parents. Oh mom you start. I just found out. I've been excited. I've been invited to go on the expedition but don't blow a good voice on the mom. I don't think we're going to be talking to mom. I thought the expedition wasn't for a while. Yet she says. And i was hoping you would talk to us before making a final decision. Yeah but i have to go right now. Or i can't go at all. Oh i got a ninety seven. Oh my exam this morning. Your mom's worried expression softens with pride. Well i guess that excellent great buys us some freedom. You can go but please be very careful. You got a good grade. Go on the other side of moon sun takeaway. Thanks mom you grab your bag and rushed through the air. Lock to the main corridor. The dough from dr series. The leader of the expedition said to the team at the central staging station for transport. He traveled through a maze of corridors. Dropped shoots the departure. Point is next to the main air locks to the surface when you arrive you see men and women scurrying among huge piles of gear looking at one of the viewpoints. You see the vehicle that will transport the team over the rugged lunar territory. It looks vaguely secto. Although you've seen pictures of such creatures although you have only seen pictures of such creatures the vehicle has rose. Mechanical legs are folded up in pairs on each of the three segments of the quote unquote bus normally the buses travel on huge spike wheels. But even those can't manage some of the terrain euro you will encounter. When the bus reaches rocky terrain the legs will slowly accent too slowly maneuver through the rough landscape. So we're on a wild west spider robots who keep moving through the chaos of people instruments and gear you find doctrine a and check in. You'd expect a doctor and a stern forbidding academic but the tall handsome woman greece. You very warmly. you located. Nice corner out of the way and try to make yourself comfortable though sense getting in the way you think. Shut your eyes wake up. The time has come a voice booms into your dreams. What you're you mumble. Oh dr are we ready of page. Nineteen like many earthlings on luna for the first time doctrine acir looks a bit disoriented but her intelligence is obvious. Now you can pick a voice you want. I was going with the booming to like intrude on the dream so we can say that. That was like a dream experience of the voice that is not necessarily indicative of what dr nassar actually sounds like. I am fully prepared for this mission. Doctrine tells you all firmly in a short opening speech. I maybe hirth born. But i grew up in egypt and familiar with the climate. You'd find surprising similar to the moonscape in the desert just is on the moon. We studied geologic. Subtleties that most people would lose patient patients with doctrines sears speeches short informative and you gather that. She is wise very sharp. She lacks a sense of humor. That although she is wise and very sharp she lacks humor. Okay so my vocal. As amar makes perfect sense. Yeah no this is good now. I'm gonna go get some scissors and cut some hair really close to the mic. While you do this next part. Why can't i can't like we don't have the f- fully work for these yet. So i can't do like shoes crunching on moon-dust so when you get your new house yeah develop a chooser adventure fully. Hey we really really radio lab this this stuff. You know we're ready. She says let's get on board putting your suit on and tucking your helmet beneath your arm. You prepare for the journey. Even though the bus is pressurized everyone remains suited up at all times in a crash. There's no time for dressing ran. Who while you trying to find where to sit. You hear a familiar voice injury. Wanna help me with sarah burns. Emma's sister here. i think they sound the same. How'd you end up on this mission. Sarah burns asked with a smile on her face emphasis. Things used to be shy around you but that seems to have worn off. I just saw your sister at the politics park. You say she didn't mention you. Were going on this trip. Yeah well. I didn't know until right after exams myself. But here i am good to see you sarah. I'm sure the expedition. We'll be fun here. I help you get ready for the ride. I've done this a couple of times already. She says and there's a way. I just like why introduce a new character. Who's a sister of a character who you've already met like why can't they be the same ring. But there's a shot of dr zero. I suppose to see her standing in front of a big like wail. Look in spatial might be the bus. It's our spider robots. Okay take it away. Once you're strapped in doctrine sear comes by and checks up on you. You're nervous but you don't want her to now everything's fine. You tell her oh one more thing says doctrine this year on this trip you'll have an opportunity to learn more about the specific aspects of each job. I'll be working with the analysis team but you might want to learn more about the machines we use driving. One of these rigs almost requires a decree itself and operating. The exoskeleton survey equipment is art for. Let me know thanks. Dr this is going to take some thinking. You would like to work with dr a series. You know she could teach you an incredible amount in the lab but the excitement of being in control of these powerful machines draws you as well. If you decide to work with dr nasiri. Go onto the next page. If you decide to learn how to run the machines for new page forty. I feel like we want to bookmark this one. This could be a pretty early. A pretty big split. Yeah that feels. Right i ll. I'm having fun with dr to see her so like i'm tempted to go that direction. I don't know which direction i can tell that montgomery is laying the groundwork for maybe. We're going to meet some aliens. I don't know how to get there like going to get to the ailing aliens. I don't know if it's the machines. I don't know what can happen in this lab. Andrew do you do machines. I guess is the question in your heart of hearts. Do you like you do machines. I'm just running down the list of the original ninja turtles in which i am most like. Even though i liked to play leonardo on the playground. I am probably most like donatello. So i do do machines. Let's go to page. Until i feel like i was the donatello. What am i a michaelangelo. I thought your rafael. You know you're you're so whatever cool but rude. Yeah you how are you. You're cool but rude you're gonna tell in rafael claim to turtle and ran. And mikey yeah. You're a party dude. And whatever the other one does what do they say about leo. He leader so boring cyclops energy. We're going to page forty. I wanna do machines. It's my turn and do machines all right. Let's do machines. You came on this mission to explore the lesser known areas of the world. You live in doing lab work would be like staying back and tyco colony but without the comforts as these thoughts. Go through your head. You look out the forward viewpoint. Descript blast glass distorts your view but you can see the wide grade plain of the crater floor. Fine dust kicked up by the tires but with no air. It sells down quickly. Hadn't thought about that. And you know that your tracks will stay there until something else comes. This way i thought about. Because i've been watching the moon. Shell i know. I don't have the streaming service that lets me. Watch the moon show but now we can talk about that okay. After a while the mountains that form the crater's rim gets closer and closer. The peaks are jagged and sharp. Dark shadows alternate with bright spots of brilliant reflection looking at the mountains. You do not see how the bus can possibly make it over them. You have seen some pretty amazing things in your life. feats that would be impossible on earth. Buggies being lifted over high crevices by flimsy. Look in lines pulled by well-anchored men and radio transmitters supported by towers a centimeter in diameter. And over a hundred meters tall no atmosphere and let gravity allow for many incredible possibilities. But you still are doubtful about making it over the mountains. Still wondering about the upcoming ascent. You feel a tap on your shoulder. You turn to see an older man with a relaxed manner. He says names john. I'm supposed made of gopher supposed to show you how you i'm supposed to show you how we work. Some of this stuff go to the next stage. Nice to meet you john you reply. What stuff how. We get this bus over the mountains for one thing. I'll tell you it's a sight to see. Okay you say we should. I do asking questions is a good start even if you think it sounds stupid go ahead and ask lives have been lost by folks who don't ask enough questions. John tells you but right now you just stay there. When the bus stops in about ten minutes will go outside and set up the winch. The ten minutes seem to take forever. But eventually john comes back and tells you to get ready you carefully aligned the contact points of your helmet once it's on you bring up the displays. Everything seems to checkout layer of air about a centimeter thick separates your skin from the suit. This internal air pressure acts as a buffer against falls and provides a few extra seconds if you have a puncture. let's go. John says over the helmet radio system. He turns and heads to the airlock. You both get in here. The rushing of air being sucked out for reuse. Then you can't hear anything set for your own breathing moving out carefully. You crawl down the ladder and jumped the last five meters to the moon's surface. I feel very happy with this choice. We're already walking along the moon. Bowman walk in on. John has some sort of spirit like spears sort of moon. Speier that he's showing us. There appears to be a moon tank in the background. It's like tank but also excavator. Oh and then our spider about is yes. John lopes over to a big pile of gleaming metal machines grabbing one pulls out what looks like a huge gun interns to you. He kneels on one leg. Starts adjusting it. This is the line gun. Your helmet radio crackles Gonna shoot a placement up to that. Lead john the closest mountain. You see john point to the dark mountain that dominates the area directly in front of you once we get up there. We'll pull the big winch up. And then i'll bring the bus up after us. Turn to page forty four. Okay you say more than a little nervous. John sands before you realize it. He is shot a spike with a long metal cable trailing behind it you see. The spike crashed into the side of the mountain. And take hold. Give me your hand. John says prepared a witness. Some of the wonders of a low gravity lifestyle. You put your glove hand in his and he hits the retract button. You both speed up the mountain to the ledge. Hold your breath hallway up. Once you're both safely on the ledge john removes a winch and pulley set from his backpack. The metal gleams under the harsh sunlight. John uses the line from the to pull up an even larger pulley system. Engine from the bus you sit down flat rock and watch them set everything up. After an hour he tells you that the show is about to begin waving his hand and speaking through his radio he tells the people working at the bus to connect seal line turning towards you. John asks want to throw the switch. You quickly answer. Yes the lever to turn. The winch is small but when you flip it you feel the vibration through the soles of your boots. You look over the legend. See the bus. Lift up on. Its rear tyres. The tightening line pulls the front end up. Then you're able to see the buses insect like legs work and We got on the opposite page of this illustration where john is holding us. We are kind of hanging off this moon column. The sun is shining bright and the moonscape is below to take both these. The legs extend find holds in the rocky face of the cliff. You see the bus. Climb slowly but steadily up toward the ledge. You are amazed at the way its whole body moves like something alive. We got the idea from spiders radio feeling spiders. Ip to make our big spider. I've seen pictures of spiders. You say but. I've never seen a live one someday. You should check out earth. John says well again political. Come on john right now. i want you to check. I want you to watch the bus and make sure the is turned off when it gets to the lip of We don't wanna pull the bus onto the ledge and have it bang into the rocks. I'm gonna go up to that higher ledge and set up the second stage she says pointing to a rock outcropping. Stay here okay. John shoots another line now and is gone. You see him up above working on working on finding a secure spot. Turn your attention back to the bus. You wanted slow progress up the steep rocks your mesmerized by the slow movement of its legs as they climb with careful precision suddenly strong tremor shakes the earth you throw your arms out instinctively but you bounce forward and are thrown face down to the ground. No no there's an illustration of the bus being pulled up the moon mountain. Sure we got the idea from spider. We got the idea from spiders of rock. Crashes next to you you struggle to get back on your feet. You call john and the bus on your radio but there's no reply. The bus slowly continues. Its climb up the cliff face but you see that iraq has hit. Its nose and dented. It what did you do. John left underlying on behind but he told you to stay here and wait for the bus. You don't know what will happen. If you turn the turn the winch off if you turn the winch off and go see. John is all right. Turn to pay fifty seven if you decide to wait for the bus to makes it alleged. Turn the page seventy three This also is a good yeah. We're definitely warning this. I feel like we're a go getter. We made the decision to to get out there and do some stuff. So i feel like turning the winch off and checking on. John is something that we might do. Yeah also i think john. Is you know every one of these books. We find like the breakout care. I think that john john might be live. Spider technology is storms played standout character right fifty seven fifty seven cool action shot of us. Somebody's but somebody's but over a moon rock swinging on a rope Modern yeah if john is her immediate attention might be the only thing that will save him. You look down at the bus. All of its legs are securely services of rock. Trying the radio once more you get ready to turn the winch off as you flip the the lever into the off position you feel another trembling through your body but this one comes from the settling of the bus not from a rockslide. Everything seems so still silent. You can hardly believe you're in the middle of emergency. No time to think about that right now though. You have to make sure. John is all right. Well endangering anyone everyone else. Taking the spare line gun. You aim carefully known you have to do it correctly the first time you squeeze the trigger and hold your breath as despite pulls the sturdy line behind it the impact is silent and you hope that the hooks are wedged in tightly. Last thing you want is to fall backward down a cliff on the sharp rocks. The last thing the last thing with one last look at the now stationary bus. You hit the button before you realize that. You were flying straight for dark boulder reacting instinctively. You use your legs to push off as soon as you get near you scream swinging out of control and losing your orientation pain flares in your shoulder as you collide with unyielding rock. You've never been more thankful that the no pressure suit is so strong. This ascent is nearly as smooth is when john was a charge. But at least you have stopped spinning. Turn the next page almost before you it. You're at the lip of the second. Ledge he look over the top and see the remains of the rockslide. there's no sign of john clambering up. You search frantically while calling. John on your radio you get no answer but you do see something shiny baird in the rockpile now. You're really really scared you whisper. I hope you're okay. As your host the rockpile you realize that the shiny object is john's gloves sticking out of the debris crashing down you peer into the darkness. Where the rest of his body must lie. Luckily a large flat rock lies directly over him which may have shielded him from the crushing weight rod. That's really optimistic. However you won't be able to pull him out because of the angle you can't even tell these alive or not since. There's no way to find out of john's okay. You will have to act as if he is. You look around for something to move the large flat rock and debris off him. You notice the winch beyond the rockfall area. It looks as though one or two small stones might have hit it but you think it might still work no harm in giving it a shot working carefully you set up the win so that it will let lift the flat rock off john away from him. The only thing you're worried about rubble falling from above the rock. You don't want to crush john in the process of trying to save him with the firmly in place you start the wind and watches. The slowly goes to work the steel cable. Titans the rock shift and move after a few minutes. You stop the winch crawling in carefully. You grab john's outstretched hand and pool. I he feels stuck. But then you're able to slowly drag his body out okay with john clear of the rubble. You can get a better idea of how badly hurt. He is most of the lights on his external life reading display of dipped into the amber section. But this just means he is her not hurt and unconscious not in grave danger so amber is the color of his energy his. Yes three hundred and eleven. Hp now you have a sma- med kit with stimulants. But you're not sure if you should use them on man. This is a video game. While you're taking care of john you feel another shake. Your stomach. Cramps with fear is you. Turn toward the ledge looking down. You see the bus rocking against the walls even with legs to support it. The constant shifting from the after effects of the moon. Quake has slightly dislodged the winch mechanism in the cable. Seems to be slowly playing out. You hope that the bus will just lower itself to the floor. But you're not sure what will that that will happen. Maybe used stimulant john. Wake up and be able to tell you what to do. But you don't have much time if you use the cable gun in reverse to rappel down to the first ledge you might be able to switch the winch. The promise that you never saw. John used a gun to go down and getting up to. This ledge was almost more than you can handle but you must make another life. Death decision now andrew. If you try to wake john with the stimulant turn to page eighty five. If you decide to go down to the first ledge turn to page forty nine. I have been woken up abruptly by stuff and i'll tell you that my first impulse is not to give good lifesaving advice so i don't like i hope that john is okay but i i'm not going to try and wake him up with similar and then try give formation. Okay i think we should go down to the ledge okay. Forty-nine tickets forty nine. There's no way you can risk hurting john anymore. His experience would be of tremendous help. But you have to do this job on your own. You look over it. His still form and get a chill. One of those rocks could have easily fallen on you. The buses still down here down there and you have to make sure no one gets hurt. Maybe if you shoot the cable just a little bit above where you are now. You can lower yourself down to the verse ledge. This idea doesn't sound particularly attractive. But at the moment you don't have any others only a few hours ago you had never even seen a cable gun and now the lives of many people depend on how you use one putting the hook into the nozzle of the gun. You aim and shoot in one smooth motion. You pull on the cable testing. It appears to hold you. Take the loose cable in your hands and slowly. lower yourself since you're not being pulled by the minister motor. there's no sudden jerking to upset your balance. If you weren't so scared this might be fun. Everything is going well and that makes you nervous. Were the oldest. Things around is luna. Never lets it go the way it should even though you know. That's just a silly. Saying you seem to many small accidents trim serious as you kick out from the wall of rock. You feel the cable slip a little it catches and then seems as sturdy as ever but fresh fear grows within you turn to page sixty one k fresh fear wo another little slip. Time you'll smash into that rock face you look down and see you about fifty meters from the ledge. The moon may have weak gravity but momentum and mass would still smashed to bits on the horrocks all you can see his dark shadow and burning son. You're almost there just a bit. Further to go twenty meters allege you feel confident that you're going to make it in the bus still holding of course just when you gain confidence and relax the cable. let's go your fall is dreamlike. Your arms flail. As the anchored metal rope comes sliding down toward you and then you hit a i. You think you're paralyzed but then the pain rushes in your vision starts to tunnel. Light and dark lose their meaning but one thought holds your mind. You have to save the bus crawling. The two meters to the winch takes all your willpower. But you switch the lever to the correct position after that you pass out when you wake up in the hospital. You're confused until you see john's face. Nice job kid through thick fog of pain. Your a hero the end. Well we did. We did it because we saved the bus I feel like we need to make at least one or two more bug big choices. We definitely do and i do like i did want to get to where the bus was going. Instead of. just having my ending be like bus like speed on the mood. Worlers just like you got a flat tire but then you fix it good job. The moon quest moon kwa. So should we go back to the choice where we decide whether to work with dr nazir or work with machines or should we try and wait for the bus to make to go back to like mid john crisis like how. How much do you feel. We need to explore the john crisis. Let's export let's do this winch one and then maybe it will hit a dead end soon and we can go back to dr nassar. All right seventy-three okay. So this is you. i just did that ending. Okay you decide. You'd better stay. Put as john has instructed you down at the bus and wonder why no one answers your calls. The bus continues. it's slow. Climb up the cliff face minutes tick by you. Take a sip from the nozzle in your helmet. The water sucrose mix tastes horrible. But you can feel energy flow into your body. The bus is almost reached. The lip of the ledge. The clear blast class at the front should allow you to see into the control room and check the everyone is all right but the sun's razor shining directly on it. It's impossible to pender penetrate the claire. You turn the winch to stop position and see the bus settle. Maybe you should climb down to the airlock. You think the air locks operation is fairly simple and you should be able to open a by yourself. Just you're about to start the precarious climbdown and you see the airlock outer door revolved to the closed position. Hopefully this means that someone is using it and not that malfunctions caused it to lock after a few more minutes. You see the airlock cycling again. You hold your breath until a suited figure carefully pulls itself from the doorway and looks around. Turn to the next page up here up here. You shout but the figure does not turn towards you you keep waving your arms and shouting until eventually the person does see you almost before you realize it a shot from his or her cable gun has established a stable line on the ledge beside you in only a few seconds to figure seemingly flying up towards you once he reaches you you see by the face to the helmet's visor that it's one of the men use all loading the bus earlier. What's going on hip. A voice says as the man touches his helmet to yours of backup. Way of communicating. Radios are down. We didn't know what was happening. The quake must knocked out your radio. Are y'all right not really you answer but right now. John needs help badly. I think he was hit by some of the rock. There is a really one job on the moon right now. John needs help badly. I think he was hit by some of the rocks on that upper ledge since my is broken i have no idea if he's okay or not. That's bad news. I have checked to make. Sure the buses kid i then i'll go check on john. Even as he says this he starts to work the control panel of the winch. You see the bus moves slowly and carefully back down the cliff next page andrew. Would you believe put a john a little while you see more people struggle sideways out the airlock. They seem to be trying to bring a stretcher with them. Four people use lying guns to get to the legend. John is you hope he's not hurt. Then you feel the wooziness of delayed shock. You'd like another quake you pass out when you wake up you see the bus at the bottom. There's no sign of the medical crew. The men who first came out of the airlock shaking shoulder you see his lips moving but here only silence time to get down to the bus you here as he remembers to lean down. What about john you ask. He'll be fine he sleep and right now. You're barely aware of being taken down to the bus hurling down a sheer cliff face with only a thin line to hold. You doesn't even register dangerous after the events of the day doctrine series waiting for you inside the airlock and she takes you to your sleeping berth. As soon as you lie down you fall asleep again but your dreams are full of falling rocks and exploding mountains. When you wake up hours later you don't feel refreshed but at least the adrenaline from the excitement is worn off as you walk up the length of the bus. You see john was not the only one hurting the quake. The movement must have really shaken up the bus. A number of people are walking around with bandages and slings. She's like a breathy not sexy. Like s amar there. You are doctrine. A- says dr nazir says behind you. I was wondering if you ever going to wake up. We have to make some new plans. Since the unforeseen circumstances altered our original goals what do you mean. Well she starts. Some people are going to go back into the emergency runners with so many injuries and john. In such serious condition we decided to cut the mission back. We're going to continue but with just a bare bones crew. Does that mean you want me to go back you ask. I think the decision should be up to you now. You just now. You know just how dangerous these expeditions can be. If you do choose to continue we will have plenty of work for you with so. Many people hurt. Every pair of hands will be invaluable. Let me think about it for a moment talkie you tell her. Don't take on the emergency runners leaving twenty minutes and they can't wait around unnecessarily a necessarily if you choose to stay with the expedition despite the danger andrew turnip age. Twenty seven if you decide to go back to tyco with and make sure he is all right. Turn to page. One twenty-seven danger danger all right. Middle name is dangerous right on. I'm a. I'm a boy. I'm a school age. Boys like my presence or absence is not gonna make one lick difference to john but this scientific doctor has allowed. You'd make the choice so well. I mean that's because Choose your own venture book and we make the choices. This book is not like other books. There's nothing you can do to help john. That's what i you decided to stay with the expedition. Still you feel pretty nervous as you watch. The emergency runners start off across the silent landscape cock john. He whisper here this time you say in the bus. During the ascent over the mountains you clincher fists. Every time there's a bump before lunch the buses at the top of the rim and you peer out of the port window across the sharp landscape of moon. Since there's no real color to speak of everything looks as though. It's both and far away at the same time. Going down is even worse than going up. But at least it goes faster almost before you realize that you're back on flat ground. The bus makes good time. And as soon and soon you reach the first site for analysis a temporary campus setup you can feel the pressurization modules humming through the ground around the quote unquote tents. Days pass and many samples are taken an analyzed. You become very familiar with the machine. That grindstone's down to a perfectly smooth polish. On one side. After the excitement of the first day of pleasantly dull routine takeover. The expedition spends about three days at each site. So many samples are taken the most have to be sorted for later analysis back of the connie by the time you reached the foresight. You're almost grizzled professional. That's when the excitement starts up again. Turn a page twenty nine. Okay i can. I just ask you a question. I know we're like we're coming up on time here. Andrew but these seem like pretty perfunctory moon exploration missions. And yeah do they really rise the level of quest. Is that what you're wearing mostly like. How important is go out on the mood and grind up some rocks for analysis when we already have moods separatists like we've i yeah i am. I feel like the politics angle might be in the tour guide plotline. Yeah because john was. I mean he seemed pretty pro earth. If i'm if i'm thinking about yeah he did. Yeah okay maybe maybe one maybe once again we have. We have made a choice that takes us inside the less interesting vein of choices and now. We're just doing like intern work when we could have been exploring the moon separatists line okay. Well we're going to read this one. I think this is a problem. Is this year's this me. This is wait. You think this might be me. Yes everyone is. Everyone is busy working at their stations. When dr seager lets out a yell you see her jumping wildly up and down. Since she's usually so quiet and reserved you decide to find out what is causing her excitement. By the time you get to her work area. A small crowd has gathered. So i place the sample into the shielded pouch. You hear her. Say and then i thought nothing. More of this was just a piece of radioactive of usual on the moon but not heard of. I gave it no thought until i started working on the sample here. And that is what. I realized what it must be. You feel the crowd straining to hear it was a ramp of a nuclear explosion. A piece of radioactive slag created when the incident occurred judging from the half life of the primary isotopes in the amount of decay. I would say that the explosion happened at least fifty thousand years ago but that would be before humans ever foot all luda voice starts before trailing exactly dr exclaims somewhat are something else. Besides humans set off the explosion that created the crater in which we live now. It looks like we'll need to send some archaeologists to. she looks at you excitedly. I'm glad you're on board. She says we have years of exciting work ahead of us the end. And there's i what is she holding hands. The holy looks like a tube with a fishing. Gosh something inside of it. And i don't know eyeballs yes eyeball tanks. Not what. but that's not what this is described in the text text is like a glowing piece of that radical rock and it looks like a mood for fish like a firm fish with is and she's stoked. Yeah no that's we got really excited about exploring moon politics because it's anthem. Montgomery really staked out some ground. He did he did. And then we and then andrew. I related to turn to page thirty real quick and just describe our audience. Mr shows image. Here that is happening on. I can't tell if zoom mister mister show is haunted by the ghosts of like students that he's slain or if he has heads mounted in bubbles on his wall he has a laptop computer that looks at least four. Inches thick yeah. He's got like there as played by bryan cranston for some yes. There are several heads just like floating around like flipping through those pages. There's a lot of go to the next page. go to the next page. There's a lot of dealing with delegates from earth and things like that. It looks like Unclear if there is what the like moons separatist plot is it does seem to hinge on a particular macguffin. I'm already on page fifty. There's 'em with a top notch and a guy with a gun on what's going on in this book. Why did then okay one. We picked what we thought would be the more adventurous plotline. But then we ended up being a lab assistant which was not fun as i wanted yes to. I don't know why emma had a sister. i think. Emma just been it. I did love john though john. I'm glad we met john even though he got pinned under a rock and was taken out of the action. almost instantaneous. yes. This book is too beautiful to live and okay over although quests okay can i just say though i really like about this book the Time anson montgomery has put into thinking about what it would be like to be on the moon from on the moon like sixty years in the future. yes based on. Yeah and just like a lot of the everything from o our are locomotion in our moon city means that we can like around and cool ways to like oh spider robots the spider robot to just like notes about like when you look at the landscape the fact that like you. They're not the normal colors of the sun in the atmosphere so it would change your perception like he clearly did some research and decided on a few key vibes about what it would be like to grow up on the moon and i dig it. I do like all the all the technology which is like he looks around at the world he lived in and he said okay. The most technologically advanced thing. That exists is a gameboy. So what's like a slightly better version of a gameboy. Well yeah because like. I want up because he thinks because specifically mentions the the communication watch being backlit. Yeah like the people on the moon. Don't have to sit underneath a desk. Lamp to yes to be able to see what's on there was like. Oh wow there's a backlight in there. Also moon quest predicted near field communication. Because when you helmets you can talk. That is true that is true. It it's like when you take your galaxy note and you push it up against someone else's galaxy note Image yeah that's that's cool. Good job inquest quiz job. Mcwethy the moon vest and is what you like. Best that that's going to do it for us here on this episode of overdo. This one of the many shoes adventure books where i feel like we could do a whole nother episode where we make other choices. We find a different the book the book the we are really excited about in the first three pages. Man i want more moon separatists more moon independence movement. My god there would be a mood. What everyone from quebec does move to the. What if they all did like braveheart and they all mooned the earth in protests. Do you think people on the move. Find it offensive. When you say that you moved someone Maybe they call it earth thing up there. Okay tell us what you think life would be like for you on the moon. Email us at overdue pod. Gmo dot com.

Let's hear with some good stuff favorite summer. Celeb- news item. Who wants to go. I amelia sure. I would say it's not all of it has been happy but i have been titillated by the just frustrating grossing saga that is brittany spears and her conservative and well and hopefully you know some goodwill finally come up but that has really I've spent hours like watching things and reading things. All about it and again you know. I hope she'll finally be free but that has been. That is taking up a lot of my summer. i would say yeah. I realized preface this award by like. Let's start with the good and that's not necessarily true for this one. But i do agree. I spent a lot of my summer researching. As i came in kind of blind half again i. But i yeah. It's definitely take in like the celebrity world by storm. And i've been like super focus on now for like months. It's been ongoing. I feel like in headlines. Yeah and i mean it will hopefully end up well. It's more optimistic day. Go by the month. So i think this counts is good news. Hopefully she'll be free by the fall so that yeah. I think your answers. Okay you say your answer you say your favorite summer celeb- news item. I mean guys you gotta with the heavy stuff with the legal stuff with all of the things are going on in the world. Sometimes you need to stop and think about liz. Everts twenty four million dollar forehead diamond and the logistics of that choice and that has been my favorite celebrity news item. Because it's such a tee time specific thing you know his and that along with his decision to buy a planet like these are the things that bring me joy when i see them an outline. These are the things on twitter. That i would rather just stop and think about like what is it like to choose to put a diamond in your forehead. What are the biological repercussions of such a choice. And it just brought me more joy. Been any other. Celebrity news item the summer. So thank you for your insane decisions. And i hope they continue well into the fall. I like that. This is like coroner. I think i signed me this at random. And you're kind of pissed at the start and now you actively care about. That's a job well done. I think my favorite larry news item still bene- for out of took me so long to even believe that this was real it felt so insane and so like just made up like out of some weird fan fiction on some dark web. That took me months. It started in april. You know we started seeing paparazzi photos now. All these months later they are like full blown how shopping benz photograph ring shopping. Which turned out to not actually be ring shopping anyway. These two are serious. That i know we're gonna talk about him like throughout this pod but that was definitely my favorite like couldn't believe it spent a lot of time thinking about. It took the world by storm. I feel like it also like it. Just gave us the celebrity gossip that we had been missing and yeah in such an expert way like the way that they manipulated us as a society and made us care about their. You know them kissing it. Nobu or like her fiftieth birthday party and the pictures and the cigarettes and the balcony and like their kids like just every little choice that they have made has been. So i don't wanna calculated but so perfect and so expert and like they're just such like capital see celebrities that had just been very refreshing from a celebrity gossip perspective. Definitely and i think there's something to it with the whole you know. We're reexamining the way we treated people like twenty years ago and you know you can argue. Well there's really good argument for them. Not being treated great by the paparazzi. And there's you know there's a. I think i read an article in slate or something. That was like how it's a reexamination of how you know. The coverage of them was really just it was. It was if you look back on it. Some of it was really offensive and like he was being billed as like this huge movie star. And it's like why would you ever go out with this. Diva who was like just cheapening your brand and everything and it was filled with misogyny and racism. And it's kind of like we're able to relive this and be a lot nicer about it. So that's kind of that. Also like they're in control now. They are exerting control over like this industry that maybe didn't treat them so all before when they were together. So it's just like a mulligan where like they are calling the shots. And i just love to see it. They're doing such a good job. Yeah next award for messia celebrity behavior. Kate who are you nominating. I'm nominating john. Mullany mayan for stepping out on the town before the ink on the divorce papers had cooled there. John laney's divorce announcement was may ten. Obviously the divorce happenings in proceedings had happened before this but the announcement was made ten. The first article about john laney dating him on may thirteenth. They were spotted out together for the first time. Like papa razzi. Pictures probably staged in june so it. It was too soon in. My opinion was not particularly tasteful and for a guy that just made his brand on being pretty family friendly and like just being very loved by the internet i it was very messy behavior. That's a good one. I have to say yeah i do. I think it's i don't know i think it's unfortunate that he he fumbled it out. I mean obviously you know he had just come out of rehab and like he's going through a lot of personally she is but just the way that that whole thing unfolded was tough on levels. I would say and there's also like an interesting element to olivia oman. I think because. I think in recent here in recent years. She's become like a lot more likable almost or may. Maybe i'm the only one who thinks that 'cause she's she seemingly has stood up for a lot of good things because i think there is i don't even want to get into it but there is this whole thing where she stood up for someone on her cast. It was like someone who was a female and there were like assault allegations stuff. And i think she's been using her platform for a lot of good things lately. But i know that. I know you guys were talking in our slack earlier. About how a lot of thornier details from her like twenty eleven book which. I didn't even know she wrote a book had come out and leaked over to talk and be discussing that. And it's just you just. Yeah sure you nobody's perfect. I just think you know. Just wait awhile. That's my only takeaway. Wait it out. You know you don't have to be out on the town right now. Agreed short my nomination. And i say this with all the love in my heart is courtney crashing travis barker. They gave so much good stuff this summer. I'm very grateful but a little messy. I think i would say yeah. I realized that this was april. Eighteenth when chavez posted that instagram. Of courtney second on his thumb in like that like syrian right at the camera in a way that reminded me of selling. Her sister did but It it has been good mostly but they've been like everywhere all of the time on instagram. Now they're traveling which is amazing because he's fine with her which is awesome but a little messy. At times i would say i think scott would agree with you. Yeah i can't actually believe this isn't a regular pot. I would send so much time talking about that but scott is messy all the time. I think this is like a really fun. Messy like there's so unless they like kinda. I don't know what it feels like. They're teenagers just like running around the world more. They're just like horny on main. You know the pda's it's different. It's like a good messy. But also like i don't necessarily want to see all of it you know. Yeah yeah agreed really. Hit a room energy right. Who's your pick. I was gonna say like the baldwin like alec baldwin is family but like i'm afraid of him so i'm going to say that i you know when i say this with. I think there is a chance for her to be redeemed but christine she. Just you know. She's done good things but she's also been kind of obnoxious lately and i think you know that well one the way she treated courtney start in was not okay but she apologized but then she did the apology in a way that sounded very sincere and that wasn't cool and then she made a big deal of like. I'm logging off okay. Then she liked only to come back and it's just like okay. All right just please. Just go away for awhile lead. Yeah all of these choices can just be solved by just logging off to staying home for a while. John laney manley do what you will in your own home. Coordinator travis like juice. John seconds them on instagram christie again. Like just log off for a while. You know these people just do less right. Yeah yeah we actually haven't talked about chrissy teigen and a couple of i'm very grateful feels really happy has logged off this for a little bit because i genuinely do want to like her and i think i have before. So that's true. i. I have as well. I have to say okay. Let's do best summer filleting cake. Go ahead liz. Kelly showed some incredible foresight early in the summer. By saying i feel like a lot of celebrities are in australia. You guys like. Let's look at which celebrities are hanging out in australia. And during that segment ti-time investigates which is rare nowadays We were like wow weird. It looks like tyco. itt is dating or like. could this be true. It turns out. Liz kelly just ahead of the game on taken rita who have now been just oliver australia all over the world with all of their celebrity friends and my favorite aspect of their summer. Flaying was the weekend where they were photographed on a balcony with tessa thompson. Just very close very throughout my whole watch senses were tingling and you know it turned out like they were just hanging out having fun sexy time but there was that one day where we thought we had taika a rita. Tessa and that was my peak. Summer fling. attic doesn't make sense. I love it. And i'm honestly in taika read i. It's yeah tiger. I think they're just very chaotic and strange. And i'm very entertained by their antics. Sure sure you can have that. You could have you. I am personally picking. I know this is like extremely last minute. But i'm adding it because i think it's important. Channing zoe kravitz are like beary strong contenders for best summer fling. Their new york street style walking around. She's carrying a little bouquet of flowers like everywhere they go is so good and so sexy at amazing under such a hot coupled together and there's like in great outfits just like walking around aimlessly on a bike at times in new york and we were comparing this morning. Those brazzi photos to the ones that he has with jenna. Dewan which i know was a while ago. Now so the styles outdated anyway but just the difference. He really is like on a on a come up right now. I think so. He and channing like just are operating at the highest level from day. One you know like they did not take any time like you know just kind of awkward like actual unplanned. Pictures like bay came into the game. They're like looking their best. They're frolicking in the streets of new york from day one and it's just incredible stuff from them. Yeah and they like look at the really serious or just like so. I don't know. I think romanticize new york too much. But they just look perfect together in this setting. It's amazing i agree. Your who's your pick. This is for all my reality. tv heads. I would say kristen cavalieri of laguna beach and she was also on the hills and she had her own very cavalary. tv show which. I don't think he's on anymore is it. I don't think so. i don't think so. Yeah i think it recently ended Has been seen out and about. I guess chase rice. Who is a country western singer and he might also be known if you are a huge survivor fan. He played and got runner up on the season survivor nicaragua which i think was back in two thousand nine and then also if you are a bachelor fan appeared on the season The peter pilot peter season where he had a fling with the evil contestant victoria f and she and peter ran into him at a concert because he was the anonymous country singer that was singing on their date. And you live. Yeah and that was a whole thing and yeah like this hits all your coroner's just is absolutely zigzagging around while this for you. I know i was really shocked. But i'm kind of excited over this couple. I'm like okay all the view. Okay on the flip side so that was bessemer flings now. What couple of guys sink. We'll survive the winter. It's tough on celebs. Tough in general. I am personally gonna pick riyan rocky was may nineteen thousand g. q. Profile of him came out where he called rana the love of his life and my lady and all the stuff. They've also talked about this then but they've been connected on and off since twenty thirteen. Just feel like they're strong solid rock star of a couple. I believe in them. I think they're they're gonna make it through the winter. What do you guys think i agree. There are low key enough good. You know like they're not out. You know just sort of like raising any pr flags or not. You know being really see like some of these other celebrity couple. I think they're low key enough. That i think we can consider that to pretty serious. Yeah glad you agree. Who's your pick eight Well speaking of pr red flags zinzan. Tom holland. It was dance birthday this week and tom holland posted a picture of her Both of them in the dressing room for spiderman And he was like you know. Happy birthday to my m j and something about it. I think across the board for all of us raised like our pr relationship. Red flags a little bit. Like i think it's there so part of me that's like you know they're very close. Friends obviously like could very easily be real but there's just something about how we've seen their relationship layout in relation to the spiderman trailer and the spiderman press tour which has already started however i am choosing them as the couple to survive the winter because man doesn't come out until december seventeenth so they are in it for at least is can't break up before the movie comes out or at least we won't know about it if they do. So if it's real. If it's real gray and i think they're stuck together at least until it comes out just for i don't know press sanity reasons and if it's fake they're definitely stuck together until after it comes out so either way like there well into twenty twenty two. I agree with that. Yeah you're right. Oh god oh my gosh well. My answers pretty obvious. I think better making it to the isle this time around. I seriously wondered how. Yeah yeah i think so because you know what i do believe that they are doing a lot of pr stuff like this is great pr for both of them. However i believe you can have pr and actual love. And i love there. So yeah. I love that optimism. I to you so early on was like is this real. I'm not sure you were from the starlight. Yes believe me. It is so i believe you here to trust you. Like to see them in a really boozy amazing wedding to get it out of the awesome. Okay speed a boozy. What is the best celebrity summer vacation that we saw kate. My favorite celebrity summer vacation moment was the harry styles. Olivia wilde yacht pictures when they were on vacation in italy They wanna vacation after. He finished filming my policeman over in europe. And it was just a redux of the harry. Kendall jenner yacht just revamped for twenty twenty one. It was at the same time that jason's today 'cause was doing kind of these sad interviews about his life And then saw olivia. And harry just like cavorting on this ya like a lot of pda. A lot of very short shorts tattoos and it just was like various special two days in my life where i was never a day on the harry styles daily accounts i follow on twitter and have followed for years like there was just something new and it was something crazy and harry. Twitter was meltdown at all times. So that's out of my celebrity. Vacation's always yeah. I agree. I personally am picking jordan woods and karl anthony towns and i am omitting the location because celebrities have stop tagging their instagram's and it's very frustrating. Because you get a paparazzi photo. You don't know exactly where they are. And there's like a lot of places in the world that have the bluewater that looks like you know animated and the big green mountains all. That's up but these to have had antastic summer together and i know oftentimes as soon as they started talking about her i start like and she's like she just glowing post. You know what home drama which. I won't spend anytime comparing her more too but she looks fucking great. They are so in love they are they. I think i did. A lot of research. Went to saint lucia and someone this summer but they've been multiple vacations that look like this and they're just so in love and she's just like just the most stunning human being So i'm gonna give it to them. They're trip looks great and they're just like very cute together. I what i like them too. I think that's great. But i need him to get back in the gym. Okay yeah we'll be. He's like the timberwolves central player here. And i mean you know. It's not like podcast guy. Yes minister teams and It's just been tragic for us. But so carl love you. And i'm so happy for your relationship but i'm gonna need to get back in that jim carrey. I love this tough love out of yours. I'm sorry it's just like you know. I think that's you deserve to go on vacation. I'm not saying you don't deserve gonna need you to get your game right like be worth all that money. All right. thank you can keep taking jordan on these fucking bug light occasions. Exactly all right. Who's your i just wrote. Can i just go with benefit on that. Yes you know italy three. He was rubbing her ass like that. daddy from the block video and it just again you know like we were saying before they play to the camera but also they're having a good time so that was really. That was exciting for me. That was a highlight of my summer. Personally honestly fame. The data pictures came out. It was just peak celebrity gossip. Great great okay. Who is a summer olympian. That you guys are still following on instagram slash. Tick-tock is a great question. Because like i always say you follow a lot of olympians during the olympics. And then like i just immediately get tired of some of them as soon as they are no longer relevant to my life i will say i still fall eric shoji. Who's the lebaron for the us. Men's volleyball team because he's in creating a lot of very funny content about how they lost. And i just love a good sport so and he also this from hawaii so like a lot of good like location based content as well. He's got on talk. And then also i will always follow the us. Men's national team like they're all of the soccer players all the time. I wanna see you together. I wanna know who you're dating. I wanna see your weddings and your babies and your fashion lines and all right. So i will follow them forever as long as they keep giving me like that suits content. I'm in she had amelia. What about you all that. I said so. I recently discovered him like like towards the end of the olympics. But his name is noah igarashi. And he's this japanese surfer. And i'm like really in to surfing because they started a new surfing. Tv show on right after the bachelor in paradise. Show that i watch. So i was like all right. Looks like three hours of television. Down the tube on monday days. So and i've just been like really into watching Surfing and skateboarding. So you know love that content also hot so like i'm well and then also you know i got a shout. Suny lee love her and she's dancing with the stars. My dad and i were debating whether this is a good idea. Yeah interesting. I think so. She's a celebrity celebrity yet. So it's usually unity for her to like. I was saying yeah right. My dad was like you need to be in that gym. All the time and People do get hurt on dancing with the stars. I read of injuries. This episode is brought to you by bank of america.

Let's do the next award. For best summer meam slash trent slash social media moment. Okay so i picked. There's absolutely impossible to describe on past if you haven't heard it so if you've seen it which you probably have. It's the anikin and had may be embiid dominated social media this summer. If you haven't seen it i'm so sorry for what you're about to hear that it is a series of images from attack the clones movie from two thousand two and my favorite part about this mean. There's like no reason for it to be popular in twenty twenty one like it just happened. Organically like there's no timeliness for some reason as image just caught on which is always the funniest kind of me in my opinion But it's picture anikin. And he says something. and then pad may agrees. And it's like laughing and the mannequin says something else that's a little bit sinister and then padme as like. Oh no. and that's the best. I can describe it And if you're a female panel and so it's like the first thing. I don't know i can't. I genuinely can't do it. Justice because it's translates horribly a podcasts but this man was everywhere this summer for like two months and it just makes no sense it makes no sense as to why the two thousand two with suddenly pick up traction. I don't know why it happened but it just cracks me up when things like this too. So that's my choice really. That's good it. It was everywhere and also i. Sometimes i'll see on on twitter. Like anikin. skywalker is trending like people. Love hayden christians and as add and skywalker so that has something to do with. I don't know it's weird. they do. I don't know why but they my chase for best take trend. It's more of a general answer. But all of the transition take talks to every- popular song mostly doj cat or megan. The sally and really make me wanna glow up or still like alter my appearance in some like really insane way. Grateful that talk wasn't around anywhere actual teenagers. Because i think the pressure i'd feel would be that much greater frigging twenty eight now a blow up but it was just like it's a trend that we'd like random that now we're adults and it's coming to be so popular because we never. I don't know instagram didn't have it. Obviously we're doing globes on facebook. So i just like i appreciate it makes you want to like get really good makeup or something you know and this also makes me feel better because i feel like when i was growing up. We always had this running joke. About how like women in my family. Look totally different when we are not wearing makeup like our hair isn't done whatever and then when we are like all done up and i feel like this whole talk trying to hinges on the difference between like you before you're ready and after you're ready like and so it actually makes me feel better because i always thought it was like just like genuinely i would like go to bars or something and people like my idea that had makeup on and be like this. Isn't you are like the college cafeteria. And i'd like be looking and they'd be like this. You can't use someone else tonight. And i'd be like no that's me off so you know and then you take your glasses off your hair. Whatever but i feel better when i see like these beautiful teens. Who like you know. Look like anyone and then they go through this whole transformation. They look like a movie star. And i'm like wow it's okay are so good at makeup. It's so unfair credible. It's incredible the resources that they have taken advantage of on the internet I'm very impressed. I'm impressed with their initiative. I am too but it also makes me sad. I mean not to be like an. Es add person but it's like thatta. There's a lot of pressure. There's a lot of pressure to it. Yeah and you don't need to be looking twenty five fifteen okay your time to do that. You just started using bronze this year. Because i was want to many dog videos was like i gotta learn something new. Okay amelia. who or what is your best. Take doctrine social media moment. This is probably going to again like age. Me and i just i don't really i don't know i was like thinking really hard but i. This might be too springtime. But i really liked that agatha museum. It was agrippa after all. Whatever from wanda vision winking picture. I know whatever. I don't talk about it any kathryn hahn content. You know i'm here for it. So thank you all in on that true. Actually we should trust your opinion the most because you work in social media. So maybe he's gonna win. This category so next one is best celebrity. Summer fits and it pains me to say. I'm very sorry. But i will credit her styles and said hailing bieber just has like incredible. Close has amazing fits. She helps that. She's like paparazzi too everywhere she goes to. She has a million ways to showcase all these outfits that were like very carefully curated for her Last i heard her. I mean she's been working with me riley riley for a really long time like dim wa saying that there may be of like had a falling out so that's still the case but she did a lot this summer. She went on a road trip. They've obviously just been today. Is they went on some tropical vacation. They've been a lot of places so wide range of outfits. And i just got to give it to her. She's got highlights. I like she just good Yup credit where credit is. Do you also have someone else mentioned here. That i wanted to talk about yes shadow. Do a duleep and perhaps your stylist instead. Lorenzo pacifico by duleep has been looking fantastic so many bright colors. Everything i wish i could wear if i was a celebrity so wanted to show also big. We make fun of her. Many vacations internet makes fun of how often she is taking vacations during a pandemic but her bikini collection is so buried and so daring. The other day she had crocheted bikini on. That was like one flower over one nipple like a pair over the other nipple and it was like just a series of inches like girl. You're moving anywhere in that. But i respect it. I respect the effort and the very strategic placement of some very fun pop star style. Yes my choices. Khloe bailey and of chlorine halley and i picked her because first of all her outfits amazing. Her instagram's amazing. She's incredible style but a lot of her photo shoots are just in her backyard and they are you know these like magazine photo shoots fashioned voters sheets or whatever like it very much appears that she just has incredible close in no. She looks amazing in them and is like okay. Let's do a photo. Shoot next to my bush today because i don't have anything else going on and i am really hot and i look amazing so and obviously you know there's a stylus on it's this as well but a lot of this just seems to be her flexing her personal style which is just amazing and colorful and she just looks great. I just every single time. You're on instagram. Like yes and i just double tap with like such a fury. I love them. I love clawing halley amelia. Who is your nomination. you know. I cannot stop thinking about zoe. Kravitz an wearing that just beautiful surreal ian blue dress. And she's talking to channing. Tatum and she's got her little sunglasses on and she's She has her little ice coffee. And it's just like. Oh god i want an ice copy now. I wanna be a new york. She just seen. No you're one hundred percent correct something to utilize do people newark's like bike on top of that so we're smarter the game like maybe that could be me ugly and like it's just like they're they're just straight out of like a calvin klein ad from the late nineties. And it's just like. Oh my god they look so good and i she can pull out those tiny little sunglasses. She's one of the very few people who can and it's just like a god. They just they look good. They're very effortless. You know it's like think twice about any of this. This is just how and like what they're doing and they just have rabi supermodels just like threw something on saint him and it's just like your closet forever but i it's just oh god this is just like there's state. Yeah he's wearing like system down like bands like even that looks cool. I'm just like fuck. I feel like she may be. I don't know maybe this is his whole life. But no i i and he looks. Oh go bid or miracle-workers. Every but i mean i love him but yeah exactly and and also. I watched the trailer for that batman movie and she looks good in that too. God damn i loved her sunday sunday we will get the robert. Patents in zoe. Kravitz joint press tour that we deserve and it would be really it will be glorious when that out of my mind excited for them just to see what they'll be wearing acting incredible. My god you said that. Because that's all i could be thinking about for the next like five. Let's award for best regular person summer fashion trend when we can. Let's like zoe kravitz. What are we working within really adjusting our parameters here asked to say have we talked about on this podcast. How great it is that bike. Shorts are so firmly in talk a lot about like the jeans trends that we don't want to see the crocs trends that we don't wanna see but i don't think we discussed how beautiful it is. Bike shorts are just in their everywhere. You can wear them anywhere with anything grier societally accessible. And they're just. I never want them to go now. We can just all be in our like princess diana as as we transition to the at a crew. And like. you're good to go it's beautiful. I love true. I know. I've literally bought like five pairs in the last six months. It's really bad. will you send me some recommendations. They bought them from lululemon. And they're like rip. Seems and like twice so i knew shorts. How what. I know. I think in washington wrong. We could discuss off my anyway. My answer. I don't know if this'll be popular among this crowd by. I am a fan of the lake longer dan. I'm sure it's i think i've been so scarred by a lifetime of like china fit in those like hostel low rise shorts and right after the zipper ends and it's just being tall is too much lay. It's so awkward. And i feel really uncomfortable wearing them. So i'm loving this renaissance of a longer cool classy short. Another not i. I can't even really rock them. But i know they're not the easiest thing to pull off but i do appreciate them. I agree completely. Oh so on. That note shorter shorts for guys also still in. Yeah i love. That look are sorts. Get longer their get shorter. And everyone's happy should be should have done that this whole time. Okay song of the summer of very important award. Kate who are you giving it to It's still good for you for me. I know the olivia rodrigue. Oh tour has been complicated by all this like. I don't know songwriting stuff. But she is still dominating the radio. I am still constantly listening to her album. I think sour was just a hit. Start to finish and good for. You is still like you say summer. Twenty twenty one. And i'm going to be like that. Was the era of olivia. Rodriguez and good for you or yeah. I kind of agree. Although i'm giving a shout out to the song that's been stuck in my head for months on end and that is Bazo spy bo. Burnham's inside yes any given day. I'm singing come on jeffrey. You can do it the way. Oh my god. It's the catchy thing. I legitimately ever heard yeah. I was at a local baseball game. At the end of my like indiana quarantine and i was sitting among the midwestern republicans and behind me. There were like two seven year old kids and they were going. Look at where you came from. This song is everywhere. Like sell gas capable and i almost actually put this in memes and then i down and saw that you had to here and i was like you're right. It belongs in the song of summer. I also just got a press release about how they're releasing the vinyl of both inside if you can but yeah it it's been omniprescent it's everywhere it's all over to talk is all over twitter and it's just to me like yearly brains never leaves now. I'm elliot went to pick this summer. Sorry not stupid again. I really liked that butter song from. Yes thank you so much. They just released a remix with meg. Stallion priam i still need to listen to that but scree i love the screaming about ho- burnham and then the next thing is really rope. Butter is so good smiley face basis me. I added this okay. Best summary actually planning kaya for this one. She's a bookworm. Kaya do you wanna go. First on the best summary made sure so i have to summer read feelings or suggestions i guess one is like down the middle and one is a little bit more out there but i would really just recommend seven husbands of evelyn hugo. Both talk is right sometimes. It's really good. It's really like everything you could want in a beach read k. I told kaya. I brought this book with me on vacation and it sat next to me at the pool for seven days did not open it. So we'll get sued eventually seems to be a problem. Yeah it is a problem haunting you and you just don't read them my suggestion. That's more out of left. Field is fleas memoir acid for the children. And i think. I recommend this because it i read it. While having like the quintessential summer. Reading situation where i read it like via lake and i'd until allows like this is just like my ideal summer reading situation and also was just like a really like interesting memoir. He has like a. I think it pretty cool world view a good weight of writing. So yeah if face that those okay. Yeah good glove. Kate my pick much like the seven thousand seven hugo i put on here because if i have not read by the fall i need someone to come to my home and hit me in the face with it. I had i had planned to read it before. The original dune release date and then got pushed back a year. And i was like i have the whole pandemic to read this book and i still have not cracked open dune and i have it sitting on my bookshelf. It's been sitting bookshelf across the country. I brought it with me everywhere. And i still not read it not that long. I mean it's it's not like it's gone with the wind like it's fine. It's not anything crazy. It certainly doable. And i should've i need to do it. Basically harry potter book for now. It's not that long long short. It's not short. But i just have to do it and i'm i'm including it here just to keep me You know yes. Yeah okay amelia. What's your pick. I usually don't really like Fiction books i like nonfiction but one that What was the one that guy. What was one that you said. I'm sorry i totally. I just wrote down the seven husbands hugo now. I want to read that. Because i read a little summary of it and it looks solid all wendy my copies since it clearly is not happening. Thank you But i would have to say. I read chuck powell snuff. And i really like him. He's like the cormac mccarthy for people who are more accustomed to john waters than john. Wayne so i i. If you like weird stuff. I would definitely read that book or pretty much read. Whatever else he's written and he's like fight club choke and other stuff so we got. I'll write all these down. Because i have got to get to reading. Hence why did not contribute to this category. Let me know how dune is list. I don't think i be getting you guys. What is the best summer show slash movie. I put mary's town because it seemed like kind of the water cooler. Show of the summer That we were all watching. We were all discussing. Just like a really engrossing mystery. And also you guys know like i'm buried tied to my early bedtime. I love my sleep. And the finale of the show is like. I stayed up until like eleven pm to watch it and then. Hbo mac hbo. Max got like fucked up so it didn't start until like eleven thirty and then i had to stay up and watch it and finish like the exit survey for work and i remember. I wasn't even mad. Because i was like so into. The show is big for me because again it is. I love early bedtime. So i just love kate winslet and that i thought she was great. I love the murder. It was very broad church. Did you look up. In peter's in it i did. I did like him in it and most of it but yeah great show. That is a great show. I would say is well. This is like kind of cheating. Because i started it last night and it wasn't released until the like august thirty first or something but only murder summer bill. Yes thank you. Thank you only murders in the building which is now on hulu. The first three episodes are streaming sufri advertisement. Freeze steve martin. I know we have previously talked about it. I think we're like anticipation for these shows. And stars steve martin who also created it martin short who i love and selena gomez who. I think i was kind of disparaging towards but honestly she does a great job. I really liked her. And i apologize selena. I'm sorry because you're great in this and it's just it's really it's a fun show and i think everyone here on this podcast would really like watching it. Because it's like them who they're all really into true crime and true crime podcast so they all start their own. True crime podcast. It's kind of like a. That's really funny. humanitarian seriously. And there's like a murder that's in the building and you learn more and more and it's just it's really good it's funny it's it's really like fun and light. Nice okay. i might have to do that. i also picked like a really late when i started this extremely recently in the name of good podcasting because i will say my real answer after but i've been watching dairy groceries in lee which is dairy girls really a summer vibe ireland. That's like overcast. Like in blazers the whole time. But it's really funny in lyon they parents But to obviously it's boring to hear me pedal violence survivor day after day after day. But that is my real answer. Say you should watch their great british bake off episode. They have the dare girls cast on bake off and they're so bad assistant. Funny it is so funny. Oh my god okay well. That's really good. It's really good time. Okay and lastly wrapping up the summer awards summer. Twenty twenty one. Mvp actually going to slip my answering. I because they don't wanna end on a bad because i picked l. e. p. Because i was kind of disappointed that These didn't perform in the way that i wanted them to selfishly. I'm so sorry my first answers lord. I needed solar-powered to be released. Two months earlier and have like five. More bob's on them wanted it to deliver and it was really did not for me. Personally i is this morning. Yeah right wait wasn't all released already. Yes i know and it also has no made no way yes really not even like just. We didn't like it. it just has not given anything. Yes yeah grade I'm so sorry i know. She's like a new mom. But i did want self eternit to have a more fine more public. She did not in like a messy drinking way but just i wanted to see her more and like more for shenanigans felt like she really laid low. I bet she's just like with. Joe like taurine and the jonas brothers has a lot going on but i just wanted more like i just really bad. She's so fine and she was like the person on the summer. I feel like other last. Truly sound for can't even remember okay. Let's move to the good kate. Who's your summer. Twenty twenty one. Mvp my similar twenty twenty one and mvp who i think has the potential to carry this right into the fall as low nas ex. He started the summer slash spraying with release montero. Call me by your name. Which started his incredible run of social media and press tour and memes and stripping and performances and then he released industry baby which just reacted again and he joss doesn't mess and he will at some point. I'm sure but he hasn't yet. And i think both of his songs have been really fun. And really catchy. I think there was a lot of people like. Oh can he actually create like a radio hit which clearly he can. He's a great celebrity. He's funny he's great at social media and then he also is releasing his full album in september. I believe it's september seventeenth. He just right before we released. This did a full pregnancy. shoot for people magazine. Like pregnant with the album again is just hilarious. And he's just such a good celebrity. And i can't wait for the album. I think he's absolutely ruled this summer Both on social media and on the radio and i'm very excited for his answer. Oh my god yeah. Who's your answer on that kind of note. I think they actually recently did a cloud like only a couple of days ago. I mean collab- as they were photographed together doing stuff but little nasdaq's and tony hawk. I think tony he might have nowhere to have the best summer. he's famous guy. He's a skateboarder. Obviously recently within the last couple of years has celebrated a milestone for his. Tony hawk pro skater. I think it celebrated like twenty years And you know. I've only heard very good things about doni hawkes. Pro skater Game and i don't really play video games. But i just you know i hear that all the time. Oh yeah tony hawkes. Bros gator cool. And then he had a big stage on the olympics. I mean he didn't participate but he was there as a commentator and you know they were all tony hawk you best skateboarder alive blah blah blah. And so he was doing that. During the summer. And then he appeared in that averill evine tick-tock it was like her first to talk gator boy and then he trended for that and again he recently trended because he put this weird like blood thing it for sponsorship and that's why a little not nasdaq's involved in race because he had the shoes with the blood in them and tony hawk had like a board with blood in it right data. I mean you can google it. But so yeah and i just feel like i've just seen tony hawk everywhere and he seems like a really nice school. I and i'm like okay. Cool happy for tony hawk. Why not it feels like every year his renaissance which makes it not a renaissance. But time i go. Tony hawkes back. Guess barry out of left field picks from you lately. We had the dawn through ulta love on the last week. Has tony hawk on this podcast. I love it. You keep us guessing. Yes that's what. I'm here for new branded ti-time. Okay that's it. Those are summer twenty. Twenty one awards congrats to the winners. Sorry to soviet turnaround. Lord thank you so much to kaya our producer. Kelli i'm how.

I ever had tubes in my ears as a child. Which when i was a child and they told me like you used to have tubes in years as baby every time someone said tube like they went to go down the wrong pipe in your throat. I imagine like a corrugated sewer tube was in. I throw to in my ear. What he meant because those as a child those are the tubes is used to seeing. Yeah he's like those wind -i corrugated tubes. What does that mean to. You corrugated tube. Well know the what is it to in your ear. I truly don't know me neither bro but babies sometimes i think it's like their ears are pressurized right so they have tubes and i don't know man i don't know what kind of tube it is. Yeah they're they're baby tubes baby too and it's very common for babies to have tubes in their ears maybe it's to help with hearing babies her so well yet. I'd say it's more that they're ignorant you know they. They're very unaware they don't understand. Even the concept of understanding new bumper sticker babies are ignorant ignorance. you agree. Yeah but it's just it's just us right now. You know we told all the boys. We'd be starting right on time at eight o'clock this morning. Because i'm going to be here and zack said he overslept.

Look down it in and then they have their guardians right and they have the spiderman ride. Which thou dope yeah. Does it's basically one of those toy story shoot-them-ups very like the universal ones more than the disney ones opinions. It's all screens. But you just do this spiderman and it shoots webs on screen with your arm. You're you're just wearing your arms out. You just look like a maniac. But it's so fun. And i was exhausted.

Don't even know if there will be a halloween point. Will there be a halloween as you know. But we got a house finally last year in september and one of our things. We've always been excited for having house is being able to have trick-or-treaters. We lived in an apartment so we couldn't do it like we have always wanted to have jeeter's and last year was going to be the first time and obviously we couldn't there wasn't in la. They're like no don't do it. at all. Other countries other countries other states put the food down a cool slide from your window and that was cool but we didn't have that option at all in. la they just don't do it sean. So i'm hoping that happens. If i'm here i might you know. There's a music festival that happens that weekend. That maybe i'm going to. I don't know it's plan by ear. Watching the rona cool. Live hard to tell i. It's hard to know if i were to have a costume. Are you stuck in like family costumes now forever. I kind of have to do it as you know.

I guess so now. I doubt you're wrong anyway. Here's my pillows. And then he was actually. I was very exciting to hang out with them because Some of the times we've hung out is a little bit fewer than maybe we used to back in the day before the rohnert changed socialization. But he's he so You so you so on it. He so advanced so witty. He's he can hold down conversation. You can show me things. He likes a little human geisel. Little human man's way. I cried in the car q. Growing up he does bits bits.

Wow spooky yeah. It's a good spooky. Pumpkin and then i showed him how to be an end to be an an edge moon pillow so i put it on my face and i was like clamping it together. Like i had little ant pincers and i was like i want to try and then he. He's on antony went over me eight. Everybody grab my face. He's funny loser closure on calvary what happened. Well there's a couple of closures in california to the two. Yeah let's take that again with more like traffic energy duty to. I'm standing here live on the highway. Highway highway shitty repair. You think maybe it's you and the parked van well could be. We couldn't find a spot of course not housing the traffic. There's a closer behind us. You know this is not going to be relatable the most people. I'm just glad we have some sort of closure. I love the to unlike my way to journey. It's huge. it's so wide nobody's on an road. It's a great if you're in. La check on it baby. You're listening michigan. Yeah sorry most. People probably aren't from la but some people might probably like not in their head right now being loved the to. Here's our recently so football was back this week. In the moi's we went to sunday night. Football keith. it was super fun. But something i saw was The raiders were requiring vaccinations to enter the stadium. Line around the stadium of people getting vaccinated. Go in oh that's cool. They're doing doing it right. They're getting vaccinated to go into the football stadium. That's dope. Wow yeah right. Even if it doesn't work for two weeks still you know. It's it's like forcing someone it's something cool and in order to do this thing you need to be vaccinated. Life's just one big preschool. What type of person was like. I'm not getting the shit. I gotta get it to get into the game and then got it right then. I guess so. That is what a perspective i mean. I'm sure some people are just like you know for god about ed or much else going on average. I hope there's not a lot of people who are like i'm definitively against it are probably some people who are like Maybe you know. I don't care point. Whatever gets them to do it. People were like they were mad because they're offering like basically lotteries for people going to win money. If they got acclimated smart people have actually. I should been the like nah. Nah i don't care one bid holy shit. That's a good. That would be a huge deal. Yeah you're still embiid. I'll have a friend of mine is very into the nba. Top shots which is a Kind of a nba dunk moments card collecting game and so i get all the updates from him very exciting actually got. I'm launching a really exclusive. Nf t that. I really liked to sort of drum up some interest about slow. Yeah why would it be about Sort working to have the deeds but yeah. that's funny. yeah okay. i'd like to just say it's a bad response. Yeah yeah what were you expecting. You had no specific like is it. A you sure is backed up. Why didn't want it to sound like to real new in the are watching grey's anatomy would be the only one i'd be interested in buying full nude though. Yeah and i wanted to be like it's one of those hologram a moment in action in the computer falling into the bath but right before his you with a moment of panic right before you died. I did by the way i do have. That ipad plugged right into the walls. Dangerous that is. i don't know how much voltage can get through an iphone cable. But if it's high ball as much as coming out the wall think the decent amount. I guess we probably have enough like memes of screens like we could probably make trag is. Nfc's we'd have to do it on one of the eco-friendly. yeah blockchain. yeah no. That's a whole thing but you know we do an eco-friendly blockchain goal. One of the ones that takes as much energy as sending an email And we make like. I don't know what like that keith. Face i feel like. I would like to own that keith keith.

Little scraggly hair midst me and it's like sticking out goofy and then he put panicked down. It's too long latte straight on. It's nice that's pretty good. Yeah try to clear another lip. Lie can see the lips better. But i want really what i wanna do is grow it until it's old wild western man which means i have to go through basically the bang period that go through or their banks have to go out and there's like really awkward because it would be too long to do anything with. I don't think i can do that. So i'm just gonna keep this strong strong look until nice. I'm very like Nineteen thirty look right that kind of yeah the line across i can't do the thin missed one. I wish i could do the pencils little french. But i don't have enough. My this double. Proximity is tight enough To make a good line. I always feel like.

You're like channing tatum. o'neal wait until wow olivia. munn is controversial. Now is she has have hainan. I think lose pregnant with 'cause you know some people have opinions on an advocacy that i her. I think she's great. I'm just saying there's some controversy around her in the controversy. Be around john mullany. It should be and but she's around. John mullany i think john laney is the big controversy controversy. People get divorced. Sad for absolutely controversy is people trying to do the timeline of almonds pregnant. She is versus how months ago all the things quote unquote interested. It's not a controversy. That's sort of cheating bossy. Funny isn't that not a controversy. When i let well the president did it and we bill clinton did not maybe we could call it a scandal to scandal scandal. Yeah but see what's actually raises the profile of the film that's correct. Yeah even talking about it. Feels like we have a controversy over the scandal right. Speaking of bill clinton parley speaking out and it feels like you're china by quitting as i've been trying not that actually does look like a good show i mean my one of my goals playing brett cavenaugh in it really closest friends young brett capitated get married and suddenly you got a bunch of six year olds you know you gotta fill out that registered some you do and you walk registry by the way. Yeah it's fucking website. By the way i have beef with you to actually no not unit. Keith what so okay. So i sent this movie. Senator beautiful invites over right. Sarah spent a lot of time on the beautiful. They're beautiful the beating. It'd be but the envelope had calligraphy that we had a friend do golden calligraphy and vintage stamps for each individual. Very nice so different. Becky and maggie. Both were like what envelope. What are you talking about because you hack the envelope when boom and then just have would be the invited so they didn't get to see this adventure. Stamps were snow reviving. It's pretty normal. The throw away. The envelope is also. You shouldn't have made the invite so beautiful if you want me to. Cherish the outside because he invite is beautiful. It's beautiful in fact that it is not on our fridge against like windowsill. that's cool. I guess in a very prominent position of our home. I don't know. I think i'm with miles on this one. It was if the outside was so you know. But i had dr pinkus open it. Well we could've showed it to them vintage stamps and golden was like i i thought was. How long have they been home. None of these tiny stands. Where words like you re sense. How old are hardening their stance captain built in the studio. And this shirt matt. I was gonna just casually so true guys ganzi style for days baby. Glad you're i'm just broaching controversy with both. Didn't see the envelope that had the vintage stamps on it from my wedding. Invite they said you guys threw away. There were vintage stamps. Not even noticed that. I did know me. I thought it was a mistake. I thought these people don't have any stamps or digging in the back for trying to find what's their pinching pennies on his way already. I honestly can. You remind me the aesthetics of your wedding invite. Because i don't even recall eating there's arches on the actual by on the envelope is a golden calligraphy with vintage stance on it But a lot of thought that's nope. Why do i knew because they talked about this because it with us. I know you guys are probably saw when and then etc loops moved into a house a couple months ago and like get in the mail. Of course no no. No no self mad refrigerator is like oh nice refrigerator. Cool you guys like viking. Whatever fucking not magnetic not magnetic throw can't own so nice can't do nothing with that. Did you get one smart fridge fish. You guys don't have you bought a dome for him. It came with the house. I did get a dumb fucking dishwasher. Dude okay we moved into the house washers broke in and then we got a home more. Because you gotta pay for a home warranty and then do the insurance claim and they say oh no actually we. This is a worthless policy thing. My warranty just expire. And they were like you know when i called you when i had a gas leak. You wouldn't help me. It was a fucking ghastly. That's it's a health hazard. I'm not saying don't get the home warranty. Because like i'm sure you need the insurance but like i'm gonna tell you around the phones for instance our yeah different. You need the insurance of the warranty. Yes it's a fucking scam people really. Yeah because they have you have to go through. Their people and their people might be backed up for like too much time. That's happened with gas. He's like oh no one can come for two weeks. No it's a gas leak. Someone comes today or us than now they just. It didn't qualify for us mine qualified. But they wanted me to use their people but their people weren't available. So i said no. I'm going to hire someone else to fucking fixed a gas leak. It's in my bedroom. That's crazy. I had to call the company. I gotta go face. There's only room in this pod for one of us. And i'm gonna need you to get the fuck outta here which one hour on a close up of daddy got the new limited edition certified ankle boy shirt a bunch of vaginas of. It's great one week. Only i don't know when this is coming out tomorrow. View on it should be all right. Let's flip i one. We only baby get the shirt. what did i miss. This episode. seems fun. I'm got fun when you walked her bad. It's been good but we've had we've had a couple. They weren't really to my really killer moves. Were you dancing. Content wise content. I talked about is. I've been thinking about making an nfc and then nothing like all right. Because i thought it was real net. Both myself and keith. Cut you off about four times in the two minutes. I've been here a story. you want it. Oh yeah yeah okay. So we're talking about nightmare. Customer service situation and so. I got this this new tv. I was super psyched for it right and it was like it was an eight k. tv which. i realized. I really didn't need to buy that. It was completely three k. paying for packaging. The extra three ks. Not worth it anyway. But nothing's in. Nothing's streams innate cap. But i was just like well. Maybe i'm future per because i thought it was cool. Yeah and anyways it comes and it's kind of kids kind of warped like it's kind of curved on the back. Yeah and and it's not one of those curves feature. Are you sure this isn't one of those curve. I-it's no no it's supposed to be straight and areas like. I'm sure it's just. I'm sure it's fine if sure it's supposed to be dismayed like my i. I kind of feel like it's kind of warped like like it's okay. I guess we'll see it turns on and it works okay. So we're like all right. This is a month or so goes by mount. That baby flat. It's true actually. I might have noticed that more if we mounting it but this is for you know smaller backhaus area just on the you got to have for the smaller backout sure it's the smaller backhaus but for us we you're outfitting it like a movie theater because that's our place to go where the kids can't hear daddy live anyways over time we start watching it and we realized there's kind of like a u-shaped pattern in darker no and it's like very kind of faint but you know when you watch something for a month or two year like I'm kinda think that is something wrong with this. And then it's like the exact same pattern as the curve anything. Something's really wrong with this. So i call them talk through customers the whole thing. They have to send a technician out. The technician arrives here as like. Oh yeah that's fucked up man. I'm like oh finally thank you aerial. And then he says. But i can't do anything about it. What has it was fucked up from shipping on the truck. You should have reported this months ago. Oh it's like the what are you talking about. I'm not not like tv expert. I'm not a digital media personality. But you don't know it's not like it has a crack in it And so they weren't really nothing. They wouldn't do anything they like society. You know you can call this customer service number and and see what you can do. And then they left. I was how and of course like the amount of man hours that it goes through to beyond hold. When he's coming to go through the fuck in byzantine act one shoe rabbit hole gets deeper. Because now i'm pissed buckle up listener right after this. Okay so this is very exciting.

Sure a lot of y'all are following and her dad control and then finally after she been pleading to be set free They they all agreed to it and now she's getting engaged. You're on the conservative. Yeah it's been really interesting to see. Obviously people are super invested in this. Because we've been invested in brittany lives for a long time but it's fascinating community like in the new york times email blast. They've been updating. Yeah because it's borderline celeb- gossip isn't it's more than that and it's about i mean a lot. It's almost about like and people's rights to take care of themselves have the fact that there's a legal structure that's fucked up it's crazy. I'm ways him be performing shows nightly in vegas and still not be able to like get a debit card. Yes crazy or is a cat on instagram.

The real like this house started. This is how it's going everything for eugene. My god and for has amazing. Obviously this means so so much. I didn't know that gal existed until maybe two years ago for sure i think for me it would be like going to the oscars would be the big one hour. Keith jokes like like if he could go to the roast of so and so that would be like. I've made it but for eugene like this is he's been working towards being a fashion icon. So we're so happy and so proud for him. I know so people were actually a little shocked like wow. You wore a suit on the red carpet but like damn he's got those red heels. He's got the amazing makeup. The story that i'm interested to hear and we haven't heard the full story. Yeah is that. He had address that fell through three hours before the met gala gala. This as mike january the most stressful. Finnick i could possibly match. This is the the biggest fashion event of the year. You are in by award lifetime opportunity to be invited you only got invited on thursday yes totally scrambling with everything people spend. I am away. I think i might be going to that gal on monday. He got an incredible et. Got an incredible designer. Who 'cause like every outfit needs to be approved by ana taught herself So he got really. Oh yeah oh. I didn't know that this event is top to bottom like the most tightly controlled event of the the second to none miles cool that can that can and so. He had this stunning dress and from this designer. It was approved by anna. Taw and i guess something happened. I don't know if it broke. Maybe didn't didn't fit. Or wow and so the suit that he wore which fucking killing.

But again i don't miles on board and get picked. I'm on board and get hurt. You want to identify yourself as patriarchy and get pegged always that it. Yeah okay. I mean i guess i don't want to identify bitch bid-rigging say fuck. The patriarchy i know is like sex positive and good and we should be pegging each other roles to be sex positive. You don't necessarily have to be defacto with eating pegged. Say it is your choice whether you want to be pegged or not so. It was interesting. Now what's your thoughts. Yeah i mean.

The Farmers Candidate

"Hi, Mike Pasco. We've got a great show for you today. But before we launch into it. Here's a word from our first sponsor this episode is brought to you by Goldman Sachs for insights from leading thinkers, Goldman Sachs on the state of markets industries and the global economy listened to the podcast exchanges at Goldman Sachs. You'll hear discussions on a variety of topics from a variety of sectors with far reaching implications, including global and regional growth forecasts finding value in today's investing climate the impact of technology on markets and much much more. That's exchanges at Goldman Sachs. Available on apple podcasts Spotify, Stitcher, soundcloud and Google play. And at GS dot com slash podcast, the following content contain some explicit language that might not be suitable for children or Mormons. It's Monday, April fifteenth two thousand nine hundred and from Slater to the gist. I Mike Pesca, wait. What am I missing? This was a big weekend for wait. What am I missing like Tiger Woods? Now. If you're a big fan, you know the ups and downs trails, but if you're not a big fan, and I checked in with a number of people in my life who weren't big fans, and I said to them. Hey name golfer. They all would say Tiger Woods. And if I said name the best golfer. They also say, I guess Tiger Woods that they know the Tiger Woods for a while hadn't been the best golfer. So when I told them hey tiger won the master's. They said he hasn't isn't that? What happens? I mean sure they knew about the sex scandal. But every athlete has a sex scandal and win have we ever cared? Kobe. Magic Ben Rothlisberger. All these guys had a sex scandal or ongoing never ending sex scandals and they still get to play and win. But tiger what he is the one guy who can't bounce back from his sex scandal. What I miss. Oh, yeah. People were saying that Tiger Woods would not be coming back. And why they say that. Well, he was getting old so asking on golf fan. All right. How old is he forty three wait. He's a golfer. That's not old for a golfer. It's one of those stories where the more you knew like the more. You knew about golf the less perspective. You actually had if you knew a lot about golf they were trying to convince you that tiger wasn't coming back. But just the average person who said, oh, this guy was like the most dominant ever, and the sport is golf. Yeah. He'll come back to dominate and guess what? He did deal at Brexit, the less you follow the smarter. You are so wait, wait. You're telling me that Great Britain's going to leave the EU, and that's not gonna cause a huge amount of trouble. What am I missing? I mean, it seems like a really bad idea. But you know, I guess maybe you're saying I'm paying that much attention. I guess the BBC talks about thirteen times a day in the economist. They seem to understand it more than I do. All I understand is. It seems to be a really really dumb thing. What am I missing now? How much I gotta say same with game of thrones. Wait when did these characters last see other? I know I'm supposed to get their connection. And I'm supposed say, oh, that's when with the battle of the thing, and you met the other one and the raven and send it in the three is how much homework was I supposed to do before this show. What I did was I relied on the previously on part to remind me of all the stuff I saw. But I guess the makers of the show thought we were going to do a lot of lot of homework. So I was supposed say, oh, that's how those guys knew each other. But mostly during the whole show. I was saying what am I missing? So you got the girl on the boat, and yet rescuing her was super easy, and you had like fifty boats you had one prisoner. Why were there only twelve guards on the one boat with a prisoner? Why wasn't that boat surrounded by all the other boats? So they couldn't just sneak up to the prisoner boat. What am I missing and a whole plot? This year is that they're gonna fight the army of the dead and they're going to do. So with the army of the living the same. Seems like a really bad idea. Here's the deal with the dead. They turn the living into the dead. So doesn't this mean for every person you lose and your army of the living? That's like a net loss of two because they're going to turn into the dead. Wouldn't you just want to stray from with the dragons, what am I missing into Stark's, aren't they like ridiculously stupid? John lost the battle of the bastards accepted. The last minute he was rescued by force. He had nothing to do with. I mean as a general the guys own one and rob died in the red wedding. And that stark walked into a beheading. I think these are the stupidest people in the universe. Am I missing something? What am I missing? All right. Maybe not the stupidest people in the universe, which brings me to another piece of culture that was released right? As the weekend was dawning. The jet is the jet is are coming back. The highs are ridiculously stupid. I'm not going to tell you the Sieff are better because they're jet is too. But please make the case for me that the jet is have gotten anything, right? They have literally no good idea. Ios every Star Wars movie is some zen mumbo jumbo brilliant visuals like scooters kicking up red sand. But when you really think about it. It's kind of a dumb idea because why are you fighting very technologically advanced army with a scooter and red sand. None of this makes sense. And then you have the Djeddai philosophy which actually if you really think about it has never worked the entire Star Wars urva that got the first movie right to Bach, a great character and mostly it's the music. Prequels and sequels where nothing was making sense except the music like this song. From the Phantom Menace. This how it ended. You literally put any action sequence to this song. And that that would seem awesome. I mean Star Wars did it. So in this senior two guys with laser swords, telekinesis, fighting one guy with a laser Tonka, stick and telekinesis and the death blow with the laser swords all these magical abilities. The death blow was that the one jet. I got contin the head by the one part of the laser stick that wasn't a laser like it was a goddamn looney tunes cartoon and all the jets are jumping around. And every time you jump goes, let your enemy land. And then you start to fight him with the laser stick. Why not slice them with the laser stick as he's jumping slice them with your laser. Stick jet is what am I missing? And then at the end of this one scene, I'm giving it away. But it was the phantom was many many years ago a long time ago galaxy far away so you have obi-wan-kenobi killing the big bad guy, Darth maul. And how does he do it? He gets really angry and he kills. Them this how every killing every very audience satisfying killing happens. And yet what if the fear of the jet is fear anger? These are your enemies. They're not your enemies. They're always the thing that gets you to kill your real enemy. You know, what if we actually saw on screen and a Star Wars movie, a Djeddai who was living the truth of the Jeddah that fear anger, or your enemies and just killed quite passively. Without emotion would call that guy a psychopath, and we would not get behind him as a movie goer. If anyone in Star Wars who was a hero struck a death blow with a calm serenity on their face. They would immediately lose the audience's favor, but fear anger. Those are your enemies. What am I missing jet is our morons? Tiger Woods is good at golf Brexit's a bad idea game. Thrones too much stuff going on. Why is everyone acting? So surprised what am I missing on the show today? I should feel about Ilan Omar and the overreaction to. Generality? But I you asked for it. You got it a deep dive into agriculture policy within the democratic primary. Ru Hawkeye who recently there was this big forum in Iowa. Elizabeth Warren has put forward lots of ideas about policy, and the gist is covering them like the southern Iowa drift plain it's covered with ridged and furrowed landscape Pulitzer winner and forming expert art Cullen is our guide back to the land.

Recently, a few of the democratic candidates assembled in Iowa not unusual to talk about farming and agribusiness and other issues also not unusual. But what was I don't know if I want to call it unusual. But actually, quite welcome was there was some meat on the bone of a few policy proposals. The man running this forum is an old friend of the gist. Art Cohen who's a Pulitzer prize winning journalist and editor of the storm lake times. And he was on talking about his new book recently storm lake chronicle of change resilience and hope from a heartland newspaper. I wanted to talk to about his impressions of some of the proposals that he asked about thanks for joining us again. Thank you, Mike. I appreciate it. So in this forum, the person I was most interested in hearing about was a live Elizabeth Warren for a few reasons, but mainly because she put together I would take a very aggressive agriculture policy. She talked. About breaking up some of the major agribusinesses. She talked about things like ownership of farmland are the issues that she talked about and highlighted or those issues, you think are the biggest issues of fasting farming. Well, yeah, actually, what I asked about was what can we do immediately to prevent another farm crisis likely experienced in the mid nineteen eighties where we lost about a third of our farms longer term. You know, what she was talking about is is precisely what else I LA that concentration in commerce agriculture. Technology has hollowed out rural America. There's a farm income crash right now farmers of lost money five straight years in a row. There's flooding right now in the mid west southwest. I was washed out and congress seems paralyzed over funding for Puerto Rico and disaster funds or not. Forthcoming, and nobody know democrat, of course, has an answer that because the current administration is sort of paralyzed the gears of government. So this is this is how this is how mergers are evaluated usually the government which has to approve mergers looks primarily at how will this affect consumers at the end. And it seems like a pretty good thing to look at like phone companies will merge will this cause them to be able to manipulate the market and charge higher prices. What they don't look at is. How will this affect say smaller phone companies or people already in the business now with agriculture? It is true that farmers are making a lot less profit than they once did. But it's also true that consumers are paying a lot less for their food can consumers win and farmers win. Or does the solution have to be a she proposes it, and you see it that? For the way for farmers to make more money. Consumers will you know have to start paying a bit more for their groceries. Well, I don't know that consumers have to actually pay more for their groceries. If transparency were reintroduced to livestock markets currently most pork production, for example, is contract at from the moment of birth to the time of slaughter and packaging that hog is owned by Smithfield foods, which is a company that's owned by the Chinese. There are four big companies involved in meat packing. Two of which are foreign-owned to American companies are cargo and Tyson, and you know, we've gone from the big four dominating about forty percent of the industry back in the nineteen sixties to now they control about sixty percent of the market. And and but what's more important is that is that the production from farrowing hog to slaughtering. The hog is. All controlled now through contract. So it promotes price stability and predictability. But what it means? Is that farmers on the outside can't determine price? Right. I get that. But I think her I heard her solution are her the main thing that she pointed to his foreign ownership of Smithfield or agriculture businesses. And if it were both saying, but I'm up words in your mouth that whoever owned that things would be the same in the American owned companies do the exact same precise. In terms of what else the the hog industry and also the poultry industry. So it doesn't matter whether a Chinese guy or Brazilian guy or an American guys controlling that hog producers out of the equation. Although I have heard it argued that because China has different standards on. I think it's pronounced Rick topa mean, which is which is the US hogs eat this and the Chinese won't allow it in their food that they might actually be an industry leader in healthier hog exports. That aside is. The stuff that she's talking about would that. In fact, isn't more if we had only done this. We wouldn't be in this position. Or is it more? If we enact my plan life will be better for the farmers. This is going right at the problem. Well, she's talking about radical confrontation of a consolidated system and the other candidates are perhaps more incremental lists like Amy klobuchar, for example, right who seem to to know her facts as much to my way of looking at it using words like Manasa, which I enjoy she seemed to know which was talking about as much as Lisbeth Warren. But was not as I don't wanna use the word radical, but was not as aggressive maybe in her tangible proposals. Yeah. The headquarters of Cargill or in the twin cities and general mills, and so she has to be careful when stepping where the giants walk then Elizabeth Warren enjoys a little more distance. I'd say, and I think that's a fair statement. And Hooley in Castro for example, called for considerations of producers along with consumers in in any kind of new kind of antitrust effort. And so I think that shows a fair level of sophistication on his part. But what if you're blowing up the system? I don't know what the result is. And that's that's the problem that I have what results when you if you take meat packing company and blow it up and say, this guy's gonna raise the pigs. This guy is going to run the nursery. I don't know how that works. And how it helps the producer in the end. I'm just not certain right? And you're saying that's essentially what Warren is urging. Yeah, it seems to me Warren and Sanders on the left are, you know, we've we've got we've got to confront the system head on. And I think there's a lot of especially Iowa caucus goers who are tend to be a little more lib. Liberal than the average democrat. That's very appealing to them. And then there's some pragmatists I think in the Democratic Party who say, you know, Elizabeth Warren's right, but I don't want to necessarily blow up Tyson. Yeah. And so, you know, maybe John Laney takes a more nuanced view. Yes. So I guess the question is how desperate, and you know, this because this is who you talk to where you live every day. How desperate are the democratic voters who are farmers in Iowa or touched by the agricultural business? How desperate are they how willing are? They to take a extreme measures. I think rural democratic voters have been overlooked so long that they're beyond despair because we've been talking antitrust since they laid the railroad since teddy Roosevelt was president. And we find ourselves today in this situation. This isn't a Republican or a democratic thing. We we've been overlook. And flown over our entire history. I think that a lot of people in western Iowa where I live are willing to throw caution to the wind and elect Steve king or Donald Trump by the same token, they were willing to throw a caution to the wind and vote for Tom Harkin who was a very fiery populist progressive populist, and and they voted for Barack Obama. So they keep hoping that somebody is finally that the train will finally come in. But it never seems to come in yet. Because of the antitrust regulation and the railroad from eighteen eighty eight. Yes. Do you think Tom Harkin, I don't know about Barack Obama? I think Tom Harkin would sign onto most of what Elizabeth Warren is proposing to most of what Amy klobuchar is proposing. Where would he be well he'd be right with them? In fact, so as Chuck Grassley, the senior Republican from island member of the judiciary committee who continually calls on hearings and opposes mergers between Monsanto and Beyer and pioneer hybrid international DouDou pot, and he continues to rail against the elimination of the Packer and stockyards administration was principal antitrust enforcer in the livestock industry. And so that's what I'm saying has very wide appeal in in rural Iowa if Chuck Grassley and Tom Harkin can agree on something. Then I think Elizabeth Warren is onto something. Yeah. Malaysia about one other thing if I told you or you know, the answer to this. But if I told my listeners that there is an. American politician saying that we should quote use all available tools to restrict foreign ownership of American agriculture companies and farmlands, and I was to further add that this politicians states that foreign ownership of American agriculture creates a threat to safety and the defense of the United States. They might think oh, are you talking about Donald Trump type nationalist? And indeed those are policies he endorses. But those were exact things that Elizabeth Warren said, what do you make of that? Well, actually, Iowa has long the books of that forbids foreign ownership of farmland and. It used to have a law that that forbid Packers from owning livestock. Both of those are very familiar ideas to Ireland's, and I think a lot of Iowans are suspicious of foreign ownership of our food supply. Even if it's a bad bet on their part because if if we get into a bad situation with the Chinese than Smithfield becomes becomes US property, right? Yeah. Using are using our own pigs against us. But I mean, New York used to have laws against the Irish working in workplaces. That's not a good idea. Yeah. Right. So is it a good idea? I was always been an export sensitive state both in manufacturing and agriculture goods. And so we're all very interested in what's going on in China. And I think most I wins believe in free trade and they're not as protectionist. As some of the democratic candidates might be and that'll take them a little fine tuning to get used to a free trade state. But we're also there's also a populous strain in Iowa, you don't have to prick very hard to find it to get below the surface. And so it's a curious combination. Yeah. Beyond the nuts and bolts of agriculture policy. And this wasn't the only thing they talked about. Did you pick up anything in terms of style? Connecting with an audience just the kind of skills that candidate might show that might order well for the caucuses in twenty twenty well again, the two candidates. We opened up talking about a war on enclo- char have very different styles. Warren had had you know, she can blow the roof off a place similar to Bernie Sanders and the farmer's union crowd and the farm aid crowd. Absolutely loved Elizabeth Warren, and and very fiery fist pump. And in the air. She did roll out an antitrust agribusiness white paper the week before leading up to that forum and then spoke to a rally in storm lake here and Clova char comes along smiling. You know, your nice neighbor from Minnesota. How 'bout you there? And so it's a very different style. But she also has very deep ties with the farmers union and the populace farm movements, and she's very well respected as a member of the Senate Ag committee, and she's very familiar to I so it's completely different style. Did Delaney Castro or Ryan impression Delaney impresses me with his? Understanding of markets and economics. He's really very smart. And it's a shame that he doesn't get more traction people to listen to him as a tremendous organization in Iowa. He has more offices and field organizers than anybody else. And he's been here for about a year. Tim Ryan, you know, he he gave some pretty good populist zingers himself talking about, you know, Trump economics in Youngstown, we call that a scam. And you know, that's pretty good stuff. But as far as mastering economics. I think I'd point to clo- char Warren, and Delaney as the three who really impressed me for understanding how agricultural markets work. Art Cohen is the editor of the storm lake times for which he won a Pulitzer prize is the author of storm lake chronicle of change resilience and hope from a heartland newspaper as always art. Thanks so much for your time. Thank you, Mike on joy being with. You. I do. So love my cats. Let me tell you a little bit about them all of our he he's definitely going to be the one to protect us from the squirrel outside when the squirrel shows up near a window that guy he's got his hackles raised and he's ready to fight. Thank you Oliver. Downside when he's hungry. He'll jump on your face Layla on the other hand. She's great with the licking of the face. Lots of looking at the face. That's both good thing in a bad thing. Yeah. Licks both ways. But there is one thing about the cats. I don't love so much. It's the litter box, which is why arm and hammer created new cloud control litter. There is no cloud of nasties when you scoop it is a hundred percent dust free free of heavy perfumes and help reduce airborne gander from scooping. So what happens in the litterbox stays in the litterbox, new, cloud, control cat litter by arm and hammer more power to ya. And now the Bill when Representative Ilan Omar gave a speech to care about two months ago. No one cared. And then some right wingers began to care or pretended to begin to care when she said this. Can't was founded after nine eleven because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties after that all let us said holy hell broke loose because Rupert Murdoch and his minions stoked to fire. They put this two month old sentence fragment on the front page of the New York Post. They talked about it endlessly on FOX. And of course, our president was triggered ever the moth to flame. He amplified. The message by re tweeting video juxtaposing Omar's comments with the twin towers falling down because you know, we needed to be filled in I see this all part of Donald Trump's desire to give the nation a toothache, and then spent his reelection campaign just poking at the nerve, Donald Trump, you see will not stand the sin that Ilan Omar committed in that sentence, and it was the sin of vagueness. Donald Trump is a man who has led a life dedicated. To accuracy and specificity like when he said this. So I think I've been given a lot of credit for that. And in terms of race a lot of people are saying, well, this is something very special. What's happening? With the white paper there, professor stopped me before you get to binomial regression or to take one of I don't know a couple of hundred possible other examples there was the time he laid out in painstaking detail his action items on one particular tactical undertaking. We're going to be looking at a lot of different things. And you know, a lot of people are saying that a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We're going to be looking at that. And plenty of other things specificity it's all about his commitment to specificity. Well, I'm being specific let me play for you. The question that elicited that Osos specific answer from Trump. His country. It's called Muslims. We know. Our current president is one he's not even in America. We need. But anyway, we have training camps rowing would they want to kill us? That's my question. When can we get rid? We're going to be looking at a lot of different things. And you know, a lot of people are saying that a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We're going to be looking at that. And plenty of other things so Donald Trump and his war on vagueness aimed fire at Ilan, Omar. He just had to it's a crusade against generality now, perhaps you're thinking. Okay. Okay. Mic. Ilan Omar was indeed a bit too general. Then I mean that is what George Stephanopoulos was saying as some people did something that does seem to downplay the importance or what happened on nine eleven doesn't it? In fact, George Stephanopoulos at it again. So just to be clear on that. You agree that characterizing is some people did something is not the proper way to characterize nine eleven look if the topic of Omar speech was I will now explain nine eleven that is not the best way to do it. But if the topic of the. Each was and it was crazy shit that Muslim Americans have had to deal with. Then. Maybe it's okay. If we don't do Rupert Murdoch's job for him and exaggerate one phrase in a speech as indicative of insensitively. Okay. But maybe it was the case that the rest of her speech when juxtaposed with this vague part was replete with Ilan, Omar being really specific and calling out really specific people all these bad actors anyone besides a Muslim. In fact, that is not what went on interest speech. I went I watched the whole thing. There was for instance, the time Ilan, Omar said, this the other thing that is exciting to me to be in this room is that there are fairly fascinating people outside very fascinating people. How dare you ally? The true nature of the clowns and ignoramuses gathered outside that speech protesting you on that day. I feel like I need to make video taking ill on Omar's words fairly fascinating people. Outside cut right to this. This is the mine come in who was outside being interviewed by that juifs named Laura bloomer who's a woman banned from Twitter for being general wack job. I will plan exchange between Karan Mein Kampf guy. And Laura Luma. I have. I have. Many times and we need to read. So we know how bad pace painting. Lift on most Brooklyn Ming. These two uncles. Fusion, give me a break. Allies incompatible with the United States constitution. And you're right. Islam is a number login. And maybe in my video taking fascinating people and putting it next to that guy. I would also quote some of the other things in this. I got from a Fox News article from two months ago, covering the speech people outside were yelling, burn the Koran. Ilan Omar go to hell and shame on you terrorists. If you want everything in America to turn into a battle line, which obviously the president does we can go there. I mean at one point in her speech, Omar said, people should not show up their mosques there. People meant peaceful Muslims who just want to pray. She spoke in generalities here there, and she made a mistake or to like saying care was founded after nine eleven it was founded much before. But it was a fine speech. Kind of speech. You would expect from someone who is championing the Muslim American community. I have been critical of Omar's tweets about money and Israel more critical of her tendency to keep going there and poking to wound rather than prioritizing, what should be the rest of the democratic agenda. But I saw it with one hundred percent on this horrible ignorant backward misleading attack against her. Yes, it is an attack, and it's an attack that the president of the United States has leveled having reviewed the speech report that it was in fact. Defense of the civil liberties of Muslims, which is appropriate in speaking to a crowd of Muslims having viewed the crowd outside and having witnessed the president's reaction to it. It's clearer than ever that the civil liberties of Muslim Americans need defending. I went to step back and say one last thing about this. Because this really bothers me for fifty sixty years America was pretty much safe from attacks from within because we were a fairly welcoming fairly warm country who citizens were incorporated into the existing society. Integration was the greatest tactic to combat militancy. And it's a stark contrast to how much Europe does it. And then after nine eleven and perhaps understandably America frightened and defensive. But the thing is during this whole time, there were always responsible leaders like the members of the Bush administration who always did the right thing in terms of emphasizing integration over policy of making Muslims feel apart from the rest of America. But now, we have this selfish president and his shortsighted enablers who are undoing all that. And therefore there we can. In america. It is in general a wrong and misguided thought to believe that America needs to defend itself from Muslim Americans. But because of the prevalence of that wrong thought it is now chew often the case that Muslim Americans need to defend themselves from America.

Hi guys and i'm julie and welcome back to another episode angel. I woke up this morning. Feeling real validated. I did too. I just can't believe that all of the things we have been talking about and speculating on the last few weeks specifically on mondays episode. You know scott milia and olivia mon- pregnancy kylie. It all breaks yesterday. What a whirlwind of day. Each story thought like really top the last and on top of that. It's just funny to me because we were distinctly. Having this conversation two days ago were saying you know what we're recording this episode and we just know that as soon as we put it out something big is going to break and i i was like i feel like the alluvial confirmation is gonna club and come tuesday literally everything. You're speculating about came. Joe right and it's not only like we just got olivia. Among confirmation via a source we got so by way of john. Rainey having very heartfelt conversation with seth meyers which. I can't wait to talk about and then on top of the brittany's data left field which we didn't even talk about on monday. I know that one really threw me for a loop we'll because in normal times when kylie jenner denounce pregnancy and john. Malini didn't just go on set and explain his entire experience. We would have probably thought britain. He was the number one story and now they kind of all seem to match up like i said they hulk tied atop topped each other. That day your which you know. Normally if you guys listen you know that thursday's episodes typically are gnashing gonna show recap old episodes but we decided to kind of use this one and turn it into chong's like amid weak recap which the one thing. I was nervous on his then. What will we talk about monday. But i realize the emmys. And it's the mad cow on monday night so i think we'll have enough. I had that same anxiety where i kind of woke up in a sweat in the middle of the night being like. Oh my god. We're not gonna have anything to talk about in the regular soda. All of our amazing haunt for this one but then i kind of caught myself. I realized gal via vm. As and especially on top that. We're not going to have to race through these topics. I feel like i've so much to say on all of them and now we're gonna get ample time to speak about it. Yeah and i guess now that i'm thinking about it next. Monday's episode will probably not come out until tuesday because realistically. We're gonna wanna wait till record to monday night after the mecca. Right definitely so. I guess that is an informal announcement that next monday on tuesday. Holy shit there's a lot of moving parts happening i. Let's get into it. I literally can't wait. This is like emergency episode energy without anything actually being an emergency. It's not an emergency but at the same time it's four emergencies. Urgency's rolled into one episode. Hoesch it okay. I know this is not what you would probably expect. Because typically we would start with kylie's pregnancy. however are you okay with leading in with john alenia levy on. I am more than okay with that. This is really one of those things. Where i'm telling you guys you have to watch the video before listening to this segment. We're gonna put the lincoln the description. It's roughly eighteen minutes. Basically john mullany. On tuesday night went on late night with seth meyers and he opened up about everything like clearly. The main headline here was the olivia on pregnancy. Confirmation because it just so happened to come out the day or so after the rumors really started to intensify. But the entire thing from start to finish i thought was exceptional. This was an example of a perfect interview. Not only did he confirm the biggest news surrounding him. He gave a very clear timeline of what went down with him. And when everything took place he filled an information that we did necessarily have and he was very clear and direct about what he was doing what he was using what he was on like and again not celebrities necessarily. Oh that to us but for him it was very much like. Here's what i went through. I'm not going to sugarcoat anything. And i'm going to lay it all out. So you have an absolute clear picture and he did so well being unbelievably funny to the point where i was ahead. Cheers rolling down my face at two o'clock in the morning when i was watching this. Yeah and you know on top of everything on one hand like strictly through the lens of a pop culture consumer. I appreciated getting all the details filled in because clearly we were curious but to take it a step further and probably the bigger deal here is the way in which he intentionally or unintentionally to me just like de stigmatized drug abuse and mental health and talking about it in a way that wasn't filled with shame and wasn't surrounded with a lot of guilt necessarily it was just a very real recounting of his experience in an incredibly what i found to be intimate conversation. Oh incredibly so especially with south. Who is one of his closest friends in somebody who played a really interesting heart in his getting sober. Once you find out that seth meyers was one of the people at the actual intervention it changes the entire tone of the interview. Because was in. We knew clearly that they were friends. They've done things together. Multiple times in one of his. Most recent appearances before going to rehab was on seth meyers but once you get that knowledge that he was in the room with the interventionist. It changes everything. I think the best way that i can put it in. This was my perception. It allowed for you to engage in the conversation without any sort of feeling bad because it didn't feel intrusive he already was in on it. I have like tears. In my eyes from laughing thinking about john mullany recounting the story of being poked out and going to snl to get a haircut where he has not worked in years and then being two hours late for his own intervention. Because he wants it. Can i have a haircut. They're like you're not hosting this week. And he was like. Can i please have a haircut and steph talking about how he has a call. Snl to confirm that that was the case because it sounded like to outrages of a thing for somebody to do and then john being upset that he had a room full of comedians. that is intervention. No one was doing bits. Only god i have to tell you. That interview is one of the funniest things i've ever heard in my life. Let's backtrack for a second. Because obviously we had general timeline in our minds but he really gave us a specific one. I think way more specific than we had anticipated. So let's quickly go through that. Don't you think yes okay. So december of twenty twenty he goes to rehab and he gets out of rehab in october. And that's the same month that he moves out of his house of his ex wife annamarie tendler which was new information. I don't think either of those things we knew. I don't think we knew that he went to rehab. Then and i definitely definitely didn't know that he had moved out of his ex-wife's house unseparated with her at that time. Because the documented rehab trip came a few months later which we'll get into a second in december right and the divorce announcement came in may okay so. He hosts the snl halloween episode. Obviously october thirty. First this is when he sober and after. Snl he relapses so sometime between late. November and early december is when seth and his other friends stage this intervention and from december to february. He's in rehab. So we also find out that after we happy go sober living for an additional month and a half and in the spring. That's when he goes to la and he started dating. Olivia mon- right by the way. Did we know that they met for the first time at seth sweating until this interview from what i had read. None of the reports had said seth meyers wedding but once he said was like we knew it was a wedding. I can't believe it was yours. Also just for context in case anybody was about to google. This sess wedding was september. Twenty thirteen which means that. He met levy for the first time about eight years ago to the day. Rockin wild ship. This whole thing is crazy and in that time line. What i thought was extremely interesting. Was that gap between him hosting snl and him going to rehab in december. Because he was a temporary writer and guests on the late show with seth meyers and set spoke about that. Saying you know looking back. I can't believe. I didn't realize how off something was or how much trouble you're in but when that episode did air and you know the interview with john mullany sitting in that trenchcoat every single person on the internet was saying something's not right here and he was like i couldn't believe that kind of the whole internet was able to pick up on something that i wasn't right which i think oftentimes can happen with people that are really close to somebody who's addicted almost feel kind of like a sense of guilt for not being so in tune with it but when you're spending so much time with someone it actually can be harder for you to want to pick it up versus somebody that sees them more intermittently right. I don't know about you. i'm sure you to the exact same thing. The first thing. I did after watching this interview as i went back and watched some of those clips. And it's not that we didn't pick up on it before but watching it now. The contrast is even more stark. It is but. I have to say what i watched it. At the time. I was like there was something very off your so. He's in la in the spring. He needs to livia and in the same sentence is when he says that they're expecting a child. He fully confirms it which is interesting. Because i have to imagine. The seth meyers audience is a lot more limited currently because of the pandemic because in normal times that room would have erupted. Yeah i think there were very very few people in the audience. That's another thing about this. Even you notice when he first came out. The applause was relatively quiet again of kobe. There was something about how even that small element that i think contributed to the intimacy of the conversation. Oh it totally did. And it's actually made it even more funny. Because john obviously is a stand up comedian is just such a storyteller and this entire interview which is why it's so funny. It was obviously like a very dark time in his life but he tells it in such a way that like. It's so unbelievably funny. Because that's his style of storytelling. And he wanted you to laugh and he wanted you to find the comedy and what he was saying but even as he's speaking he's speaking to an audience that isn't really there and he kind of acknowledges that right well especially when he's talking about when he was on last november october when he wasn't necessarily sober at the time he was sober when he was on the show he said. But you know the days surrounding that. He wasn't sober. And seth is going through the photos of being navy. We should have rise here. And it's a picture of john literally like speaking to the audience but it's an entirely app dacoven audience elise this time. There were a couple of people there. I believe but when when he did it last year. The audience was entirely empty n. Seth was like. This is probably what i should have known because you were speaking directly to an empty audience. I mean i think that in general and it's different with comedians clearly than you know with actors but i think the really the same can be said for comedians. anybody who is a natural born entertainer. I do sometimes think picking up on. It can be a little bit more difficult because to a certain extent. They're always in character even if what they're talking about is very rot of their own experiences. You know right exactly. And i feel like with john something. I didn't necessarily pick up on or dinner thing about at the time was when he came out this interview. He's in a suit and he looked great like he really did look healthy in phenomenal and one of the things that people were saying about the last interview was that he definitely look thinner and a little bit drawn and is to sunglasses on for most of it. When you did see is is something was off like. I remember a lot of discussion about that at the time but one of the main things is that he was wearing this trenchcoat and the sunglasses that he kind of played office. Having gotten it from the strokes were performing on the halloween episode that he hosted and when he came out this time in a suit i was like this is the john laney. We know john mullany as a sewer when he does his stand up wear suits when he's on interview shows. He does suits so even though at the time he was kind of in this character and wearing a trenchcoat for reason it's still just outfit wise completely signaled an entirely different person b's it's not used to what we're seeing with him. No completely i mean. I just think that there is something so unique about going back to a clip once you have the first hand understanding from the person themselves because you almost get permission to analyze you know like it's very different watching something without any knowledge. But when seth meyers john lanier sitting there analyzing his every move from this one student than he did. You then can go back and really feel like you're allowed to deep dive this as much as you want right and going on top of that just in terms of his standup in his content and what he was talking about. I remember you and i were having this conversation. We were just talking about the pregnancy news coming out literally two days ago and i was saying it'll be really interesting to see where he takes his standup because so much of his content was the exact opposite of the life that he's living now like so much of his previous content was being on stage talking about loving his wife and not wanting kids and a lot of bit surrounding. Obviously there were so much other stuff and he spoke about his previous drug use in the past than being sober in those things so to see him come on seth meyers and be the same funny john amazing storytelling but how this whole new set of material based on his new life experiences. And being able to be like okay. I now have this vision of where you're comedies going and even though it's so different in terms of the way you lived your life the way you deliver it is so there and so john mullany that it. It makes it just even better. Yeah and i think that being on their seating and of that as like the public or the consumer of comedy. I think being able to watch in real time. Somebody's evolution of their material based on a change in their life. Whether it was planned for not planned for is pretty special. you don't always get to see that with comedians. Yeah and you know you said it. A couple of days ago that the whole thing seemed kind of dark. You couldn't put your finger on why it was an we kind of spoke about his ex wife and everything's wrong and we're like yeah. It is dark situation. That's why it feels dark. I have to say. I still have the same level of sympathy for his wife because i feel like she's definitely going through it and that's not an our head like we've seen her instagram content. And we know that based on her statement about the divorce. It really wasn't on her and it wasn't something that she had wanted. But just in terms of john and olivia's relationship and the baby on the way and his recovery and taking his ex wife out of the equation after seeing him on seth meyers and seeing him perform again and be himself that whole element of it feels much less stark than i had built up in my head today. I am so glad that you said that julie. I felt the same way. It was like a palpable sense of lightness. That i wasn't necessarily anticipating then again. I wasn't anticipating him. Being on seth in ever giving us you know this really lengthy recounting the entire experience for a few months down line so i just wasn't expecting aunt so i am so on your page. I can't even tell you it. This is a weird thing to say. Because you don't know these people. But i think that you just develop a sense of care for them just knowing celebrities. It's almost like you could take a deep rathenow. Like you know what he's doing. Great yeah and. I hope he stays that way. I mean he does seem like he's doing great and it's a very clear difference than the last time we saw him in an interview. So that is comforting. And i think all anybody wants to see him continued down a very healthy and so re path right. Let's talk about living over a second because they are having a kid and who knows how this happened. I don't need to you. Know conspire as to the details of it. If they ever feel ready to talk about it. I'm sure that they will. However from the way that he spoke about it and again. This is just from what i got in this case it did not seem like an oop situation. I'm not saying it wasn't but didn't you find it the way that he spoke about it. It almost felt intentional. I don't know if it felt necessarily intentional as planned but it felt very much like a blessing. He was basically saying you know. I can further credit not only libya but now the baby for helping me. Stay on the past that i'm on. I guess you don't have to necessarily plan a baby for it to have that kind of outcome or have an intended outcome. If that makes sense no it does make total sense. I guess i can't help. Just be curious as to you know if this was the conversation or not. I really don't know it's just like i can't believe it. Olivia munn and john lanier now bonded for life regardless of whether or not they stay together. It's just like i said last week. He just was not on being go kart. I'm so happy we're here. I just really wasn't expecting it. I was not expecting it. I mean the way this played out was pretty pretty crazy the fact that this is coming before we talk about kylie and that is that's really one for the books and i after watching that interview. Not only once or twice. And i think that once everybody else watches this interview. They're totally understand it as well. Oh yeah we got so many messages about it. Because i just think that it's very rare like you said that somebody outlines the timeline in a way when you walk away and you have really no additional questions. Any additional questions. we have are just nosey. He pretty much covered all the bases. You got questions now. You're just gonna have to sit on those because that just seems like you're asking for too much right. The comfort was seth was unmatched. I just the fact that he was in the room during the intervention changes everything. I'm sorry. I can't stress enough. In my opinion it was funny to watch them kind of get each other's count of the situation like because they say to each other like. What was your experience during my intervention. John was like you know it wasn't too bad for me. Because i was pretty coked out like he says disaster remember. I kept insisting i was sober. I wasn't. I kept going to the bathroom for drugs. How is it for you. And sets was like one of the worst experiences of my entire life and watch them tell each other that kind of in real time almost like they were both hearing it for the first time from each other's point of view was like i don't think anything that we've ever seen in an interview before it wasn't but also like take away the interview factor even just in regular lives with friends that are not famous. It's a very probable outcome. That this entire thing would happen and you would never go back and talk with each other about what it was like in the moment. You're probably just so relieved that it's over and that you know this person has achieved sobriety and you wanna continue to support them so it's kind of like holy should only because they're on this talk show are they getting these very in-depth understanding of how each other felt in the moment. I don't know if they would have had that conversation regardless right. I so agree. It was just a great interview. I think you'll leave laughing crying. Little just feeling really happy for him and also like we can talk about this. Olivia on thing without feeling even sense of a little bit ski. Be doing so because there's no more speculation totally. I told you about this company before. And i feel like you've probably also seen it on instagram urges other social media. I genuinely love their products. It's called missouri. And they're all things that they make fine jewelry for every day so the way that it works. They have these new limited edition drops every monday instead of more of the seasonal releases like a lot of traditional retailers. Do and you're getting it minus the traditional tendai markups.

Okay the next thing you want to talk about is obviously kylie announcing her pregnancy. I'm sure you all saw the video but if not go off right now it's ninety seconds. She posted it on instagram. Round tuesday night. And you know you see her and travis in the doctor's office and you see story giving chris the photos from the sonogram and little clips from what was her birthday dinner and kind of just the celebration of this new life and holy shed. I mean we knew it. We were all saying it's onto present through but the real question was. How is she going to confirm it. And i think most people thought at the neck allens of the fact that she chose to do it in this way a week before the met gala is just really interesting. It was really interesting. I mean if i were her and i was announcing my pregnancy ashur. Not as me i would have done met gala grant appearance and then released the video shortly after but i think that releasing it in this way made it much more intimate special than doing it as kind of like a performance thing not that a pregnancy is performance of the. You know what i mean. Yeah and also. She's very much aware that even though the public kind of new this announcement does send shockwaves through the world of like entertainment news. So i can very much understand wanting a week to kind of process that in your own home before having it break for the first time on the red carpet. It's already a stressful day with getting ready and everything. So i love it. I thought it was so beautifully done. And there's one thing she knows how to do. It's announce the pregnancy that is for damn sure. I know this isn't really a story necessarily because we all knew that it was happening but in terms of things that we could find out from the comment section brandon. Her brother commented knowing. Congratulations which. I honestly believe that. This is the first time he was finding out about. Oh i think so too. I mean first of all. You don't comment that unless you're first finding out about it. So i ninety nine point nine percent sure that that is the truth unless he had heard from caitlyn maybe didn't get the confirmation directly from her so that was kind of what he was leading to but again it's interesting in light of the conversation that we were having about where kylie kendall's relationship with the other siblings stands. It's not that. I think that there's any sort of bad. Blindness narrowly. But i do think. The speculation of kind of separation is an accurate one. Yeah i think so too. I don't think there's any bad blood. I just think that they're close in the sense of their close when they see each other and that went pregnancy news. Like this breaks that. They're not necessarily the first phone call especially when they're trying to keep it under wraps which is interesting. Yeah it is interesting. Holy shit you. I story is going to be a big and you know. My heart can't handle that. I know i loved this. I thought it was beautiful and the person in all of this should really feel the most validated against the people is the few people on take talk. That had those conspiracy theories about kylie's nails and how just judging her manicure. They could tell that she was in fact pregnant. And i remember i will own it. We came on this podcast inside. You know yes she may be pregnant but there's no way the nails are telling any story and we were one hundred percent wrong and those people were completely right. We will put the link again in the description. Because i think it is nothing short a detective work if i was kylie i'd like i can't even be mad because that is just so incredible that you guys were able to figure it out especially that one specific girl who is just like the lead detective on the case. It was miraculous detective work. I was so impressed. And i had to tell you. I've seen her tick-tock sends the announcement and and she knows. Does she know yes. She posted one being like no no. I'm not saying kylie knows what i'm saying like the girl. She should be proud of herself. It's also funny because kind of in that same vein of doing investigative work. You see that a lot of people are now going through frame by frame of the video and looking at what people were wearing on certain days and trying to figure out when this means that she's going to be do. I saw a lot of people. Speculating that is gonna be around december. So that's the thing with the kardashians no matter how much information they willingly give the public. Everybody just wants to dig deeper. You know it's never enough info. It really isn't i think one of the biggest telltale signs was her not having that law party. I really feel that way. It wasn't even for me the party. It was the fact that they didn't post her. That's what it was like. I can understand her having a small intimate parties. Especially during cove. Ed wanting to celebrate with travis storm in the family and make it a little bit smaller that i can totally understand. She's getting older. That's more important. R but there has never been a room that in non secretly pregnant kylie jenner has walked into where every single person in the family hasn't posted a photo for like even when the event isn't about her is always there with their story being like look at kylie look gorgeous. She looks look at this hour. Can't believe it in like for that. Not even have on. Her birthday was like one hundred percent confirmation for me. Yeah no it really was and those of us who care about the shit definitely had a sign of relief that like you know. Sometimes you just want to know you know what and even if you pretend you did. And i don't believe you you know i would say that most of the comments on our post. I didn't go through them. I is don't but most of them were relatively positive and just like excited because even if you need the kardashians this was a really sweet video that you can imagine someone in your family doing but some of them it's like they are just so unwilling to have any sort of like vicarious happiness for anything in this family it's crazy to me. Oh it's wild. It's not even worth the energy to talk about that because it's wo- crazy. I mean this literally like a baby announcement. And i thought the way. That stormy presented. Chris with the ultrasound photos was just literally. Heartless did not find that so unbelievably sweet. I've obviously spoken a lot on this podcast. About how therapy has changed my life personally but more so in general kind of just prioritizing mental health which i know is something that doesn't come naturally to a lotta people and i wanna tell you about something that i really think can help. It's called better help. And it's not a crisis line. It's not self help. What it is is professional counseling. That's done securely online so you can schedule weekly video or phone sessions. It's really whatever is your preference. I personally like phone. But i have a lot of friends that like video. They like to see that kind of face to face over the computer. You can send a message. Cheer counselor at any time. You're gonna get a timely and thoughtful response. And i said this before but i think the thing that i probably value the most about this company that they understand that. Sometimes finding the right therapeutic match can take a little bit and so they make it easy and free to change counselors if needed. It's also more affordable than traditional offline.

Celebs let's get into a little bit of the brittany news before we end with scott nausea. Heidi film of that. I feel so great about that. Okay so completely unexpectedly on tuesday night. Jamie spears brittany's father comes out with a petition to the court to end britain's conservative ship and this is obtained by cnn. I want to read you. Guys one paragraph from the filing the filing states quote recent events related to this conservative ship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent the grounds for establishment of a conservative ship may no longer exist. Mysterious mysteriously told the court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of conservative ship. She wants to make decisions regarding her own. Medical care deciding when where and how often you get therapy. She wants to control the money she made from her career and spend it without supervision or oversight she wants to be able to get married and have a baby if she so chooses in short she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of conservative or court proceeding. Big deal jamie spears really coming in in the final hour here a little too late. You don't think. I mean her lawyer literally says and i quote. It appears that mr spears leaves. He can try to avoid accountability injustice including sitting for a sworn deposition answering other discovery under oath is kind of like a hail mary. Yeah that's exactly what it is. I mean it's entirely self preservation at this point because he knows that once they really start looking into it and especially now that bernie has her own lawyer. It's almost too late for him. I think once they find something. So i don't know if this is entirely avoiding accountability. And he thinks that if they do find something that by him being the one to requested he's gets to avoid those penalties or if he's just trying to look sympathetic in the eyes of the core. I don't know but it is kind of crazy that this happened. It is the kind of thing though. Where even i believe. The motive is entirely selfish. That it almost like doesn't really matter if you're just looking at it for the purposes of the endgame year you know like it's almost one of those things where it's like yes in theory him. Wanting was genuinely best for brittany would be the ideal. I think that ship has sailed so much so if he really just wants to preserve himself and in the process of doing so he helps to end this conservative than you know. what like. That's better than the alternative. Oh absolutely of course. I mean this was just adolescents. There's really nothing else to say about. It just broke last night. So obviously china is. It will be interesting. Because i don't know the specifics of like the legal proceedings now but i know that when brittany had like petitioned to end the conservative ship. There were a lot of things in place that she had to do that. She felt that she shouldn't have to do. I wonder if with jamie sphere saying that. He wants to conservative ship to end. Ask the conservator. If those things that britney previously was told she had do will still have to do or if that kind of overrides that because he was the one in charge of it right like the medical evaluation things that she had said. She was an insult to her intelligence job to do right. I don't know those are all things that hopefully in the next few months we will have an answer to. Yes absolutely abso okay on mondays episode. We said that typically we don't like to take social media posts esu cryptic however we really had a feeling that amelia broke scott and it was confirmed source told us quote. Amelia broke up with scott over the weekend. Scott agreed that he feels he needs to be single right now. They had a lot of fun together. But it was never gonna be a long term relationship. Amelia's done was scott for now. She wants to be strong to move on. She had enough and it was time. Her friends are all rallying around supporting her through this. Everyone knows she deserves better. She knows it. You fuck ya. Thank god we always love scott and we are in his corner but this relationship was one that was not serving her in the slightest knowing it wasn't serving him. No of course. Not but i was looking out for her. No i mean of course. But i'm saying like in neither of them specifically her but neither of them were getting what they needed on this relationship and there shouldn't be a relationship that exists were neither of them benefiting to be honest with you though. This is really the question right. Obviously this happened right after. The unicef was public which we were saying. I'm sure felt a little bit. Like quote embarrassing for amelia. And as we know embarrassment is as strong emotion that i don't know though if there was a lot leading up to it and this was the final thing or she was in denial about you. Know his still longing for courtney in this kind of brought her to reality like. I don't know exactly what went on. I would love to know the last few weeks and how that contributed to this potential. Dm like putting's over the edge. I don't know i don't know either. But it is funny because unices motivation. This was obviously lake entirely clot motivated in a little bit to get back at scott or probably more than a little bit to get back at scott but the person who really benefited the most here was a million intentionally right because now it was almost like people can make up whatever they think goes on behind the scenes and that can be reason enough that they think that she should break up with him but when this happens and it would happen publicly. It was almost like she couldn't create a different narrative not that she was trying to do but she couldn't create different narrative because now for the world to see and i'm just honestly. I'm just so happy for like miss hatch end while were always on the topic of giving out. Edible arrangements have to imagine that unis's getting an edible arrangements very shortly from lisa. Lisa you know harry how signing card harry hamlin might send his own edible rage when he might be getting too. I know it's funny because we were talking on monday. About how like a single emoji. Never the common we want. However when lisa commented just the single smiley face emoji on the announcement of their break-up it spoke volumes. Like i didn't need anything else. All i needed was at one smiley face and we knew what she was thinking but it was a great window and to remind yet. That was absolutely perfect. I would've done anything for the cameras to be rolling like house cameras when the break of happened. Let's say at the kitchen table between hiring lisa. Do you think you'll get that no definitely not feeling right now. That's so exciting. I would love it. Oh that is so upsetting. I wish they were two things that happened to me pretty much every time i go to. Cvs that the i. I go in eating like one or two items. And i ended up just buying the entire store which at this point. I don't even try to go away from. I almost lean into exit just part of the experience and then second of all normally i mad the register. I have a bunch of stuff. There's a line that formed behind me. And i'm like rummaging through my bag to try to get my car. The whole thing very stressful. And so what about to tell you about can actually solve both of those problems. Because cvs now accepts super easy touch free payments with paypal and ben mo and on top of that you get ten dollars cashback on your first in-store qr copayment twenty dollars or more so the entire payment processes a lot less stressful and you're also getting rewarded. Which for me. It's kind of like the best of both worlds since what i just described. I go through every single time. That a cbs. So to get ten dollars cashback on your first transaction twenty dollars or more just head to your local cds and pay using your pay pal or ben app. That's ten dollars. Cashback on your first purchase of twenty dollars or more with paypal or ben mobile app to see terms and learn more about had earned ten dollars cashback gonna pay pal dot com slash c. Okay full transparency. It is ten nineteen pm on wednesday night. Selena recording an insert because after we sent filed for our producer the news rakes that jennifer lawrence is pregnant. So i don't know what the fuck is going on this week. But i guess we asked for this. They're really delivering. There is really something in the water. First of all and second somehow we keep just saying things and they come to vision because we got the edits back from the podcast. And we're like a little shorter than we would like like. We're going to have to put an insert of something. And i say goes like i know what we're inserting. It's just like what is going on like. It's not just as the amount of news it has happened this week. You're right every single thing which you sent in the enjo- so accurate every single thing in and of itself would have been the biggest story of the week. It was a continual overshadowing. I can't believe that. Like you manifest than i somehow discovered talking things into the universe and it's only being used to get celebrities pregnant. I know we really need to shift our priorities. We really do. We are definitely going offline conversation because these powers are working. There's a checklist of things. That i would love to accomplish. I have coil. Yeah so anyway. Yeah jennifer lawrence and her husband. Cook moroni as you guys know. He's an art gallery director. They're expecting their first child. They were married october. Twenty nineteen in rhode island and herath confirmed it exclusively to people literally hours ago. So jennifer lawrence is going to be on. I know she's gonna fuck around. Kris jenner the godmother of that baby of course and you know we always talk about what wishing denver lawrence's on social media. Yes i could see the best story of her opening all of the gifts that like the kardashian center for the baby shower and just being like what is going on. Current tire house was filled with boxes only from their family. I would do anything for her to be on social media. She won't be at this point she's not going to be but oh my god it's not even just that. I like want her presence. It's that she would be so exponentially better than every single other person on any single app thing is. I don't know if i'm so sure of saying that will never happen. Because we never thought jennifer was gonna come on and she was like twenty years later. New overlords joins instagram tomorrow and buying a lottery ticket. Don't angelie that's not going happen right. I don't know what else you wanna say. Something else crazy out there. It's like a tossup between like every time is as the. I should've said that. If i'm going to embarrass myself one day get somebody. Who's going to hear me talk about him on the podcast than it's going to be embarrassing it's like i don't want to say like our powers only work when we're talking on the podcast like i might have to start speaking up a little bit more. If we're going there then shy. Just tell them about the jake. Don't hopping no. I think that i don't know. He recorded ten o'clock at night. We're two and we're going rogue i feel it. I'm sure the energy and this one's actions different than before. I don't know yeah long. Story short guys know about julius syncope davidson. I recently got like fucking. I don't even know the jake john hall white venezuelan festival. Thing just did something to me to the point where i texted julia seriously was like okay. We're gonna put this on the vision board. Yeah and i said as a good friend. I won't stand in your way and that is why i love you and appreciate you so deeply with everything inside of me. That's so sweet. We cannot record this time normally no because honestly it's too much for me first of all. It's been twenty four hours exactly since you recorded the last one. I think it definitely did not sound like this. no. I don't know what's going on right now. Anything else that you want to mention about anything. Oh yes sure. I have a couple of things only talk to me. I really really really want you to watch beneath feldstein on american crime story the impeachment because it was phenomenal and i watched it and i think that you will absolutely love it. She has a gem. I will and also the fact that monica lewinsky has a producer title. I really appreciate that. That's like a perspective that you can't imitate. It's going to be invaluable to the show. And i i foresee and what i've heard is that there's a lot of things that are gonna come up. That are things that we had no idea about that. Monica is kind of sharing for the first time. Ever to give us a real real picture. What actually went down. There was another thing steve. Martin selena gomez that. You wanted me to watch right. Thank you so much for reminding you. I really really want you to watch with your dad. It's the new. Selena gomez show was steve martin and martin short and it is excellent. Okay that's what julie does. When she knows that she really wants me to watch things. She writes a little synopsis and she puts it in our group chat with my dad because he knows that the chances of watching. If it's something. I can do with my dad or exponentially higher. It's a really smart tactic and that's why she's never watching people. 'cause you can't watch at exact dumber i know. I'll get there there lawrence in social media. You're just gonna keep teasing me and it's never gonna happen. No because i think that one night. If i'm like really horny and i just wanna show like i know i have that on the back of my days. That end in y. No some eight windsor. We've ever recorded are in lives. We also should we tell them you guys. We have a different producer. This week is our producer on vacations. She's gonna listen to this. What the fuck like. What a week. A different producer when. We're straight of delusional. You know it's so unfortunate about this episode. It's ninety nine percent me laughing and make you cut out all of it. I promise your life is an annoying. Because i don't think we do it in a way where it's annoying. I think we move away from the mic. I i don't know we try to be really conscious. I think in the editing process to cut them out when they're annoying. I you know we both are super like hyper conscious about that. Yeah i know. I try to cut it out because i think they're always knowing their to interwoven with this little insert here. What when we finish listening to gets to and wang. We'll just read you. And i hope that that's not the case because i love this kind of off the cuff energy metoo to actually okay. We love you guys julie. I love you so much. You're my best friend in the world and we love you guys. Thanks for listening is on. I will see you tomorrow for bravo. Holy shit the salt lake city. We're literally batch record that in five minutes. I'm so excited and i think that's it and also don't forget next tuesday for the regular episode instead of monday. Because the mechanism of you guys thank you.

It was hotel indicates called something else like a new condos that opened up the bottom four. Yeah super nice. It's not like it. Looks like super expensive but like it wasn't nice normal normal prices meli. Mcdonald's prices below normal restaurant plays they look fancy so but i don't think i don't think you have much of a chance because i was fucking and that wasn't on purpose that wasn't like subconscious year. I made it was nothing like that. It's just. I was like oh man. I didn't know if we're gonna talk for that long. I didn't over going. I was going to drink the whole time. Yeah and then it happened just happened. Man was just a weird. It was a weird. It was a weird date. It wasn't love match him. That's fair sometimes.

Yeah yeah the pictures. I wanna try that. It was good. Yeah from what. I remember And then like we were just hanging out. Have a dinner and probably me. I was real contrarian like one of like the next morning i woke up i was like why was his. That was being a dick. Yeah that's not being snarky or explain. What you say contrarian. Yeah just like whatever she said. I thought the opposite i. I don't mean to do that to sam. But i definitely do that. He'll be like a fact. And i'm like no i don't think so and he's like sarah you don't even know like but i have my opinions going to just accept it. Yes so i was kind of drunk. But it wasn't being. I'm a contrarian by nature just to be fair. Yeah i'd like to. I don't know about that. Let me let me look at it and make my own opinions. That's kind of how i relate relatable content. Yeah but she has a lot of opinions that i had like fully thought out disagreeable opinions so it wasn't like i was just having a conversation i was like. Oh cool i. I think this sometimes whatever and like the whole time i was just like i think this is awful mike good yeah but then i was like i'm so drunk. How do i just leave and walk home. They'll get uber. What do i do have locked him. Yeah no it was nice. It was fucking cold though like over. Jackie don't really do the cold much anyways. Donald duck with. I don't have the warmth foreleg the clothing to make happy more sherpa. All the sherpa in the sherpa at home has been a Hit the Hit all the things. That was robe. I got back on the road. It's a blanket and it's got space. Guess it's affinity. Yeah the sam still in the living room so it's free grabs falls asleep in the living room more than i fall asleep in the living room. So you best believe so. We have like the circular couch cushions that go in the fund circle seat and we'll put it on the floor. We call it. A lily. pad is awesome. It's even better whenever our cat lily sits on it. 'cause they're rather large. They're probably like. I don't know like three feet in diameter. And so you have nine pound cats in the middle like little kids ever put it on just like this is the pillow. Thank not the pillow thing but the blanket. Yes it in the Yes so you could open up If you know what we're talking about you watch the drunk episode. I gave her her christmas present birthday. Present birthday presents. Sorry referred that one is a drug episode. I was like shit man trunk. Valentine's day hit. Hit your ladies with them for its lupercalia lupercalia. That's what the festival was called. Okay i was like what are you talking. Yeah so i remembered that so they did it in like the chilling adventures of sabrina. They have that in an episode votes. Cool a little different you know since they were witches so they were on a hunt but they had like wolf hoods and they had to like go attack each other and go playing each other and that's how they did their thing got gotcha one more thing so this date. It wasn't that bad. She was cool chick for me. I think it was real jerk so like it just was that was probably my bad. Yeah well some of it was definitely my bed. As far as the alcohol induce contrary nature general persona that day. We're talking like she was like she was too wholesome for me and i might like a deviant by any means but the point. Yeah i mean you know what. I mean to the point. Where like we start talking about. Like stand up comics and south and she was like she was tumbling. Can't get into kevin hart. He's just not wholesome enough. If you can't give them the kevin hart i mean like i think kevin hart to be fair is pretty wholesome. He does everything for his family like. That boy works hard but even stand ups. Aren't that by name. Yeah they're usually about family or like you know him just kind of like these are the struggles through means some like the rock dynamic super fast. I don't know man. Like my digging. Dave chapelle donald feels the best man. I think he's the goat to me. He's the goat as far as stand up. Comedian like wholesome with a little bit of cheeky. Nece like john laney. I don't think she can heal john. Mullany he's hilarious so we watch some comic should we. We came back here. She watches this guy. He was funny but it was like. I can show you later. Okay or i can get phone obsessed with medium sized. Yeah i was gonna tell you really bad date man. We watched this lame comic. Send it to you. But i forgot because drunk. Second part that's fair. Yeah but i'll send he looked anyways. It was funny. But i was just like i don't know man like i don't know it's like to them. Well i fell asleep. Woke up and threw up all the things. So that's how. I was just like jesus christ what happened. It was all rigs. I drink the red wine. So i was like am i dying thought like my leading but insides of medical stuff for the day. Become my man. That's the medical stuff though ma'am drink. Open story psychedelic water. Looking with your recap drinking bourbon. Like it's way better sometimes psychedelic water but it was. I don't know why Well i guess because like a type. The psychedelic lot. Oh yeah so like it sends me stuff like that. It's like here. you want. That said the psychedelic one time on instagram. And then you know. They blocked that post. They had deleted But i didn't know they did block that one which is funny because like my instagram ass. Like there's just women ass. I mean i'm mean basically naked women on there. I mean not even like hey look at that just like normal stuff. Yeah i mean. I don't sound like why is that on their anyways. I'm glad it's there might be. Why a double tap it but appreciate your content one of my best friends. Adam like I'm like. I'm not really big into social media. I'll make i'm not a prude or anything. Not like oh my god new. Social media love it. I'm gonna like go. You know what i mean. I do like the look at stuff and shit but he was like. I was just like facebook and i stopped using facebook two years. Yeah because i was like. I'm good on that. Yeah that's nonsense. All recess or using it again was when office. Because i had told me. My count was too sticky. Because i never used it so no one sees anything that i do because i never had a literally bit log on for two years so i started like headed like all right paid. Google answering. Got whatever so. I started doing that. Sorry can't live two glasses up with revised funky but he was like do together to get on instagram. This was years ago. Shit five six. Seven years ago. And i was like fuck around. You find yourself a spouse there you go. That was like i was like. I'm good man. I don't think i don't fuck with that anymore. He showed me. He's like dude. Is just ask allison social media for butts and he was like basically shows yeah he scrolled through. Feels like i'm a check it out man man. Yeah i'm gonna check that out a lot of late. There's a lotta ladies on their follow. This one page called alpha channeling and its artwork. They have like coloring books. But it is sexual. I'm sure there's times that's the first page that comes up and you're like wow yeah i mean it's like it's like single line work It's not very detailed. you can obviously told people And then kind of like. Do you know alex gray. Own bligh unique. Get on alex. Great alex gray. He is a visionary artists. I feel like you memorize his bio. He's a fabulous. Oh already getting calls from the fam- we. I have a birthday party. Leader for my sweetness. mother dan alex gray so waited for that like type towards psychedelic or something right. Yeah and then. I'm not gonna lie man within like an hour. I probably had fifty random people. Like message demi trying to give me the by psychedelics through instagram. Yeah and i was like man. I'm good that's cool That's nice that you wanna like share experiences with people of the world but large internet. I thought that will. Yeah men so alex gray. He's a visionary artist he's Hate the has this really cool like he's been working on this huge that and then internet. You know we don't like repo stuff so you just have to look. I was gonna say some puts the pressure on. Sarah post at chick because i mean how do i post it. I'll show you where. okay. I mean i. I don't mind sharing stuff but a lot of his work is hyper realistic. He's got a lot of things that are that's cool. It is super cool. So that's how you live in color. I mean i have to. It's funny because my friends over this weekend for incurred he was here. He's awesome dude. I'm noticing shit. More heavy details far as like he shows like a puzzle. So he's got like. I'll describe it Super high pigments A lot of if you're like look up anything psychedelic. You'll see a lot of those Soft reds the yellows a deep indigo blue a lot of white highlight to show like brightness and he does people hyper realistic. But you also look like it's an anatomy book where you can see like the blood vessels and usually like the skin the nerves and then he's usually showing like some sort of like cosmic connects trippy anatomy. But when i was looking at me like that is pretty cool. So channeling does a little bit like that as just kind of like shout out for all our fun folks that we follow on the social meets But alpha channel like sometimes they'll just pop up and it's like picture but they do some really fun very artistic child jew a very realistic penis in vagina with a color pencil. Yeah and then they just have like fun stuff. They have fun coloring books as far as like bam like hot on. They have one. That's hilarious. Hilarious not the right word. It is very artistic context when your schooling see pictures of people's food and their dogs. Same idea with alex gray where it has like. But it's thing and cosmic connections someone's kid there's someone the dick balls era phase us anymore. The internet has done the context of instagram. There's all that stuff together like. It's fine but it's like targeted with that word. Facebook at targeted with this shit called psychedelic water. We drink the gas. Yeah yes that's my favorite part. I was like look at that color. Yeah yeah so. I bought a six or of it. But it's not gonna make you trip balls or anything is league but it's got three supplements in it. I don't remember two of them because they seem to make that three hour. One to view one was green. Tea was some shit. I've never heard of the d. It didn't seem that fun. I mean it's fine in me but there's one called kavakava cop that were never heard of that but apparently it's a big deal. It's in the pacific islands It's a it's a route. That's the bottom of asia now mediterranean geology pacific islands. As i read it so just remember remember it. I think it's a root of a mushroom. I think it'll take their. I think it might not be attached mushroom or not. I think it's the root of some. They gave the species name of what it was the really. Look it up fuck it. We'll be more scientific whenever we have it. Kavakava kavakava was called But in the but they use in the pacific islands so they dry it route dry powder and they put it in water in the drink it for religious celebrations nice. Yeah that was like. Oh shit i to do that. Like you. know a lot of people who do like kakapo ceremonies and cacao being like a form like a pure form cocoa cacao trips with your brain a little it definitely has a has an an effect. You think so i mean i have. Friends who do house ceremony has an effect. That's done a ca- cal now. I've eaten a ton of different whenever and it's like the whole process of it being blessed being a ceremony the the scene the scene the sentence heading inserting So that's been interesting. I have a few friends that do like They'll do like a sound bath in a rooftop sunset cacao ceremony to get them to do it on the podcast there in arizona fucking skype. That did we get it. It's i don't wanna do skype interviews. But that's worth it akao ceremonies. Yes yeah i want that. That's probably if there's one thing that's like nothing to call them that right now got right. Now just can like. Oh yeah my girl. Mackenzie you want to talk to some people's especially that's actually what she's been doing. She's been doing a lot of like feminine energy like womb clearing wounded or womb womb. Well well very feminine energies. Are you clearer womb. This isn't very literal. when you're saying it. Yeah so Energetically ancestry trauma could be passed relationship trauma. And not even like abuse or anything. But just like You know whenever you like sexually interact with somebody like you're taking on their energy and that's what thou channeling is like showing so that's like the thing like the energetic exchange or you got to get her the pocket i would love. I've never heard of that. He does a lot of junk. dna activation and like cellular activation. She's really cool. Yeah i won't tell hitter up. Yes if you want that'd be that'd be somebody i would skype some cool shit the yes. She does a lot of really cool and she's been in part a lot of these ceremony. So i hit my girl was would do it all no time limits. We can talk good. She's gate but it's supposed to be like the for religious ceremony is supposed to be like not like alcohol is psychoactive right. It's like that type of it's not like you see unicorns and shit tells doesn't rhyming can do that either. Yeah so i. I don't know the dosage they use in ceremonies. But i don't know what's in the can. I can't remember. I wasn't looking at this at this time when you drink. This canes psychedelic water. Review will dive into more. You're supposed to. You're not supposed to drink. Sometimes as they say makes your tongue tingler go numb for like fifteen minutes. Okay what does that about the people who have like the frequently asked questions shuddering alcohol with and maybe they always say no but don't make sure stuff so it's a very white culture thing is true. It's supposed it's like i'm going to have ten beers this this drop this. Eat that blah blah blah. Smoke that and it's like it's like one nine time this racer. I want to the people just want to like not be in reality or learn from it or whatever or enjoy the new reality just wanna like. This is my tally bar of all the things i did. Just waco's raise the day this podcast. The day was gone. Gone like i think it takes me before. The data's like up to not do it. Because i was like fuck fucked up overestimated my sobering time. Yeah that's my response for anything. You take me shopping. Should i get this do it do it. Fuck it is do we saw. It sounds cool. Like i don't know i know it's not going to be as cool as like ireland folk do because it's like but it sounds cool so it's supposed to help your creativity and make you feel kind of weird cool but it probably just like bubbly water. We drink and be like okay. It's a dealt with that too but it might not be the psychedelic water. Buck around find out. Be the best. So it's kurt by buddy staying here which try to get him on the podcast. He didn't wanna do. Listen to the podcast. So you're going to hear us talking about you next week. He's colorblind. oh fun like the red green color. I can't remember to ask when he comes back. Like that's the most common with males i can't remember cocooned in ron. Yeah yeah health health. I've given up on the health aspect. Fuck it and then because he was like you talk about. Color lowers the podcast. It's like something else. Say something. He's not interested in which is probably. Yeah probably. yeah but he's like cool to listen to the stuff that you're interested in because like you're in so in the color because he can't even see it you're talking tripping man have actually and sunny you even say that if he is red green colorblind because i have just saved a color that is like a nice green at least picture like saved up blurp the color. I wouldn't say it's new but like the new black which still don't think some new black. It's just a any blue blue blue. And then just the blackest of black data spirit staring in the space man. Yeah it's just it's just really interesting. It can absorb light was its intent and purpose. You feel like it's like in my soul. That was the cool thing with it. Like not see how kind of like tick all your debt perception away. It's either maybe and didn't learn to new jersey depth. It was green though. I wanna term to my favorite words. So i thought i thought it was like bullshit by not bullsh- and say that's very dismissive. I was very dismissive of it. But i don't say it's bullshit kind of mean it was Quantum relationship relationships. I guess a really whatever that was kind of cool because i love quantum shit science for real. Science magic yeah. It doesn't relationships fun. So i was like what is that about but when i saw all the other words associated with it like around it almost like those are kind of not not really. You know dismissive of it. So i was like so so quantum so it's on yet. It kind of takes relationships and looks at quantum entanglement on that is an idea like how quantum physicists just think is cool Quantum quantum physics is like string theory. Yeah well yeah as healthy as can be an about relativity in waves and stuff like that in energies. They were all all the energy stuff. You talk about energy. It's actually the science science behind the real like all that's the actual reality of the universe is energy as opposed to do like hard matter or physical matter fluid yes vibrates next to each other and be like poof up over here who've so you quantum entanglement is a real thing this is like Two particles that are like. I wanna say light years away. Think that's accurate but like shit our shit far away from each other sify super far. But you could do one thing. To one of the particle act the happens or interact simultaneously light years away which should be impossible. It's like magic. Yeah but apparently back in the day then. This part might be butchering butchering all of it. When space was kind of folded on sale on top of itself so really expanded. Yeah so the two particles were side by side and they got entangled the when it opened up or expanded. They're still connected that way. Yeah so that that's quantum entanglement but it's basically like their energies of the particles does not little pieces as like his wave forms and so when their energies interact the to separate particles become one set of two distinct particles. they become one together particle. That makes sense. Yeah so there were no afghan things totally separate but they get together and they their their energies interact and they change so they became different. They're not separate the so when they get separated from each other. What happens if this happens. That makes sense now. This is super crazy. Shit like quantum entanglement is what that means. So is this these. This is actually. I think it was a psychologist. I dunno somebody. We're looking at relationships. Because like so like when you're in a relationship you're physically close to though you know what i mean so then like your your your your energies but like the ones they whatever. They measure whatever they interact so much of the the two people become instead of two separate people they become like their energies change. They become one chunk. I can't think of good words of two junks. Become one chunk so then what even when you're separated what becomes what happens to one happens. You other how one changes changes the other. Yeah i can relate to that because especially me and sam have only lived together. Since we've moved in with each other we never had remains or anything like that And we spend a lot of time physically being close mostly. Because i follow more on what's up. Yeah how wifely thing. I had to learn. Be coming into the house like give him a second. 'cause i'll just be like. Hey what's up. Eight ninety get into the he like. I hear the door unlocked. He's always oh. Hey mom and i'm like okay. All right cool cool. Let me let you shoes off and light. Put your book bag down and like briefer for a second. And i'm like okay. Cool last night. I was like i just follow him around the kitchen. I was like you know what. I'm going to go step. He's making. He's making kim some space. I can i. Can you know he didn't ask that. But i was like you know what i can feel that back up but yeah so apparently like The happens that you're become like this. Two particles hope people and then you have to have to look into. I've only read about once or twice but yeah yeah so i thought it was going be bullshit but it's kinda cool i can wax. I'm kinda into it the more they're like a read on it And it goes into. I y like once that first happens like the synergy of people and it's like But then over time can The entanglement good word or not the whatever relationship can like deviate and you have to big talks about how to bring it back together so you can feel that excitement excitement. Yeah honeymoon phase like often like you can lift going this way come together and then ramp and feel that way volcano or whatever that's cool it is pretty cool but i mean and like people should really keep doing that like spouses. Don't stop dating each other. Like i mean you don't have to do like all. I need you this and by you. That like just little stuff. You don't have to get drunk and a podcast. Fancy day throw up in the middle. You don't have to do that to do that. You don't have to do that requirement now. It's not sometimes you do. Sometimes you do a news going to be fucked up you you did call it. Yeah called it I forgot that. I like fucked up. Oh shit. I think i'm too fucked up for this. I was just like who a retail the knows. How fucked up. Tell me that this is a good idea like you'll be fine. I was like fuck it. Lets reservations like go. Eat the food. Yeah it was good has fancy pizza. I think fancy. Remember at fancy pizza. Have pairs on it Pairs and like. I can't ever say gorgonzola cheese gardens alone. I don't either. It was just on the menu and got through the through it up. Sorry i heard sounds penalty units coming together. I think find down. Listen to a lot of crime. Podcast it did not. I don't think it's healthy for you fun and a nice okay. Like i like hearing people's stories hearing real people she's talking about. True crime podcast. yeah But they all i mean i get sketched out. Just like what you know. What's kind of weird like the. I can't remember the percentages of men and women overwhelmingly women. They own yes love. This is a good example. Because you love. I love podcasting. Never listened to one. Just pass them yeah. I don't know what happened. I have no idea why. I'm not like a little. I don't ever watch it. I don't really care to see like the. I don't need the actual visual yeah. I don't need that. But i've never. I've never even skip one all the ones like. Oh my god it's so good. Yeah i mean if i could like crime junkie. A great job finding information having people stories reaching out to like you know if these families have like web pages still trying to find people. So i appreciate that aspect of it but then it's like ooh i didn't need to hear those words eight. I'm just like that is something that has stuck in my head because i mean they go through the crime scene and it's like wolf. Yeah when i was used to watch this show called unsolved mysteries. Wash that no. I watch highlander. Okay as a kid movies or the show okay. The it's my man. Religion was first name so good. I think the one that has sean connery in is if they go back and we see him back in scotland like a thousand years ago whatever. That one's cool yeah. They're both good. I'm an endgame. Yeah there's a third highland. It's kinda lame. Have you seen them in a future. Like way in the future the future one watch a lot of them nikita. Did you never watched that show a keyboard. usa network. When i was a kid so the male character his name is michael and he talks like this he just talks real what is it frees la femme nikita that means something nikita was her name and so it was the woman. Nikita the female catchphrase. An akita was her name. In france and francis. Thought it was me. San we talking. We've been watching some something about ancient rome. the board goes Boorda's zilla scripted. Show or documentary. I mean scripted. Show but it happened a spanish pope. They were not pleased. And i kept hearing gangster back and they're like the head gangster for hundreds of years shiva's crazy. I mean. the show is pretty crazy. It's a lot of murder Why wouldn't it be Why would be Ancient true talking about the spanish popes. Oh yeah so. Gangster kept saying you know you hear the word parisian and then you hear perry perishing okay and i was like say they don't call french. Motherfuckers patter uson. Those are only people from paris. And then you have persians yet into what you're talking about. I was like people from persia. They kept saying it. And i was like i was like fuck or perish and i know that's not motherfuckers from persia. He say that was the thing we call from folks embarrassing different than i. I mean i guess. Oh so you have french people. And then you have parisians the pair instead of par goats and then parisians. Have you ever seen that movie anesthesia. The cartoon he don't even understand the like i am so deeply connected to the romanov family guest thriller just like like like not like wasn't blood related. But i've had the most intense dreams like visiting the romanoff like is room the kings or was it the was the czar nicholas romanoff his wife alexandria who is a german woman And then you had the five kids beaten and beaten was someone who worked with them. Gotcha he was gangster to the he ain't killing. I'm the fokker sick a lot and he he really magic or somebody did for the movie i mean. So that's like the war. The yeah his like story in like he's been assassinated like try to be assassinated few times. His whole reason for staying around is their youngest son was very weak and sick. I don't remember what type of i'm assuming. He probably had like some autoimmune disease but he couldn't. He was very weak and feeble so they kept him around and every time respite and would do something he would get better So that's kind of that story like you did like some some medicine kids. They kept him around for whenever he got sick. Okay but at the most intense dream i've ever had like to date was being in a mausoleum. Most of it was covered in water. But that's what i was doing. I was visiting the graves of the romanovs. And i've had that the same dream like four times. I don't know what a recurring dreams mean. Because i have a couple of recurring themes do yeah like. I don't know what it means that i'm unlike obsessed with the room and i've always knowledge have is from the cartoon movie. Yeah i mean it's yeah. Green magic became. The movie sold a soul to the devil. I just found out that. That's not a disney movie. It's just so like. I was like this. Of course is disney. Moving is not. it's not. I think it's dreamworks but it's not disney but it's like it's got a princess princess. Yeah she's very magic as me so sad. The saddest story the story me a connecting at barely remember. Yeah so. I mean the cartoons great but like the real story is going. Is the non disney coaching. The czar nicholas romanoff Mall extent like him. I don't know if he was not giving enough money to the people And i think it was a little bit before war one. He has a cousin who was in the uk who's a part of the british family and in the last days of the family. They were supposed to seek refuge in the uk so they left the so like the whole thing with people storming the castle movie. That happened tearing down the statues like they were coming to murder him so they took the whole family brought into this one house that i used another name but i don't remember and no one had intentions of them leaving His cousin was like. I can't help you but no one told him that. So the last days whenever they were like okay you know. Bring your children. You were about to move you and we're about to go so they bring them into this kind of cellar like room and you know Nicholas asked for chairs for the kids to sit in and his wife. Sit in Something that Alexandria told the girls to do was to so in their jewelry into their core sets because they didn't know where they were going they didn't know what kind of so they wanted to leave something to have equity in money on them so they were just covered this gangster gems and jewels. So that's the whole reason behind like the lore of did anastacia make it. You don't because they kind of had it proof vest on with their gems because they were shot. That's the reason why because they have like the first bulletproof vest with cats. Yeah they had emeralds and and gem so like they kept shooting so like they came. All of them came into the room and they were going to. What is it. it's like squad firing that that's how they executed them just a dad. You're like we all but yeah no he came in. And it was like you know nicholas romanoff we a charge you of these crimes and we execute you to death fucking now and then they just shot everybody. Jobs druid style. Yeah for real. And but that was the reason behind because they weren't gonna shoot him in the face so they shot them in the body but that's why it took so many shots to kill them really. Yeah because they had gems on. I didn't know that that's pretty cool. I'm obsessed obsessed with his family. I don't know where it comes from either. I'm i'm not rushing at all. It was pretty interesting. Schipol modest survived because they had fucking yes zone. So that's where that's why they think and they couldn't find all the bodies For a long time. But i think they've finally have found all of the remains and dave no one's alive even if they if she did escape she chain now. Yeah so you don't think about the french revolution exhaustion. Nope i don't either. So the guillotine. Everyone like like you. We don't let people don't like the french. Yeah really like shoes. Guillotine dead dead. Only do we talk spectacle. Travel motherfucker says. oh yeah. that's it was crazy. I kinda makes you wanna like. I do sliced vegetables. Carrot geting like salads jeopardy. Take a long time. This was made with a guillotine. Enjoy a motherfucker. I wanna yeah. Don't wanna learn about rx like old revolutions fairly you here talking about that and that's interesting and i was talking to someone about the french revolution a couple of days ago where they were talking to me about it because i was just like i remember this stuff barely from my school but remembers a lot of stuff just because he had spanish so they learned about although like romantic languages so he and they went to italy or they went like roman than us. But i feel like in high school he learn like Filtered censored version of history. Because you a few weeks we have to like you need to know at least one question and then we got to move. You learn like more would actually have without the filter like all the crazy. Shit yeah go to their websites. Who's there Other countries dot com. Yeah french dot com like so like how in the us we do. You know dot com. In mike germany for example you do dot e r d really was d either d. e. you like what does it mean Deutsche internet. Oh okay you know in china. They have like their internet. Is like super censored. Guess they can get like apps and facebook and whatever they don't they only show you and that's how you control people limited option to understanding. I was I was talking andre about it. An in china i mean i know like in china for sure. Yeah then what do you mean. They don't give south korea. They don't get anything. North korea north korea. Saying we mean they don't get the internet is like it'll get he's like how's it. Stop on my. I don't know kind of firewalls them. Bitches got put up. I also learned that is assault on a mean. So it's gotta be true. That's how we get our knowledge. I'm fucking news. How big africa is. Have you seen this museum. Yes okay so you can the united states and like just a quadrant china and india and they're still space and you can see that whenever you like do the globe like it's not that is not a scale at all. This is that to keep the idea of africa and its greatness kept to itself. Isn't that crazy this basically. We're not basically it is where humanity came from. We all came from what i can't remember. Which part of africa panja northern. I think is kind of near. The norton could be wrong in this the northern chunk of africa. This health specific. I mean it was right in the middle. Why wouldn't it be. there is true. All the continents relent cuddled on bam and then like the seismic earthquakes woohoo shit. I need some space. I need that was nice and all for those few millennia by quantum relationship. They need to work on work on their live. But yeah this kind of weird how they would make the map that way. Considering all of us came from there she really got me. well the motherland man it is. I mean unless you're german or russian. The motherland is very came. First humans came from the dell migrated from africa. It's the rest of the world like. Hey let's go check out that corner separately. Oh man has been dishes over there. Let's go far away from this block away. Crazy had been to be alive back then like fucking caveman. Run around trying to kill you. Now celia being super present. Yeah like fucking wildebeest shit walking around trying to eat you. Sabertooth tigers favorite. Yeah they're trying to fuck you up and they're lying motif shall we laugh just wanted to forage and berry cooley. Evolutionary biology stuff. This is a while ago so as say it might come out. Cy was just talking to a lady. That's what she's going to get her master's in anthropology anthropology which okay but there's some folks that have super smart degrees in volusia biology not so cool it was talking about how how we get out of the one of the reasons we got out of the trees. There's a lot of reasons we get out. But they said one of the reasons is because we figured out how to not bond with each other men and women cohabitate or lifelong relationships or not lifelong but long-term relationship. So many being a human in to stay alive was almost impossible by herself so we have come and try and help. Yes so we had to come in to try us. Why that's why we're tribalism. Inner dna tribe up so that way we could defend from the outside. You know what. I mean so so people could sleep. If you watch take guard you know what i mean. And then men and women do the same thing with like the responsibilities of being human. Yeah like men win. Did certain things women did certain things then the whole group had all the things instead of trying to do it all yourself. It doesn't really work. Yeah not good. Solo were designed to be like community with each other so we could make it in on die from other tribes. Be like help me. You experienced satellite festivals like instantly. Best friends like everyone who came to my wedding. One of our one of our friends. Fucking klay He came. We've just met him. Cliff in your life was like his name. I forgot his cliff. He we met him at. I think music not music. Mental sold school man Same place it's like a week after island and we're like we can view. It was like dude. You want to be in our wedding. He's like he s he came hurricane. Armagh fucking like. He came through the like worst part of his windshield. Wiper broke the busted windshield. He came from north carolina and Bike windshield Took him like four extra hours to get there and he was there. How klay clip client tien. Momma thought was really weird. I was listening to those Biologist guys is. They're talking about Us humans that yeah. That's cool this is humans are ladies or at right. Words are there. Mistral cycles are hidden. Yeah like. I don't know when someone's like fertile or not fertile. Yeah they. Did they still do that. The red tint hidden. It's a it's like we don't know but like other animals like you know when they're in heat like it's like. Hey hey guys. Hey this moretti was do you always cats man different screaming yes. It was differently different. The reason that we evolved that way is because if we were more like cats or whatever that screamed and let it out then it would be like meat and leave and then but the. They're saying that the people that didn't meet in leave they stuck together. They could split the duties of life and then their offspring survived. Oh that's cool. Yeah so i one of the things that people Women evolved or changed into having hidden or secret. Ministration or fertility moment. So like guys ever know what's going on true true but it it helps. It helps like help. Stay together because you can't like there's not like a flag that goes up it goes here. Goes i'm ready for. And i mean i mean new age. Feminists are come like that. Yeah but you know what. I'm saying. So i thought that was weird. I was like so. That's why i never thought about hidden inspiration laid. They'd never term crossed my mind. I was like oh i guess. Some animals and mammals shows the world like everybody for breeding guys. But we don't do that way because we don't we don't survive if we come this way and into partly the those those people died and the people that have the mutation or the adaptation of the hit ministration. That group stayed together. It would be really cool though if we kept the i mean i get y and i. That's probably why the Instinct abilities kind of dampens. Baby calf is like all right. Any a stand up and follow that lady. You're watching relate their cooling pup-. Yeah it is our babies come out and they're just like derp teach me everything. I knew why that we took so long to mature. And i can't remember why. I mean i'm sure it's because we have so many folds in our brain and our brains complex plex something with our brain and cognitive abilities. By can't i used to know smart words about they're gone smart words undergone. Smart words are gone but how that was trippy. I was just like oh yeah. We don't put the flag up trying to keep us together. Will little meek mother. Nature's little secrets is like now got gotta stay together. 'cause y'all gonna die down you figure it out there live with we'll just long enough. I guess we have to get the baby safe. I thought that was tricky. Man that was with those really tricky. It is really fun to saying like You know people have babies and especially friends that are like Maybe they're like me. And then they have one in there like greatest something clicks. It's just like brain thing. I just remember when. I got my son like i've known you for two minutes and i'm like i love you more than anything in life. I've known you for literally. You're you're the best thing on the planet so this weird man you can't explain it to you have one. I mean it makes sense when you say feeling it's different. It's like why getaway everyone to get away. Yeah i've i've i've heard that from people who like you know they come. Come get a session like oh why are you stressed out like my mother's in town and she won't give me back my baby. I've had that conversation you know. And it's like oh you're super like your again that tribal thing like bring the whole tribe to like raise a kid but grandma's ain't gonna like on that baby and the new mamas are like fucking beta echinacea experiences as a dab but i can't imagine growing baby inside and then just this like frustration of like. Yeah i'm super type. Came back my baby. My baby talking. Yeah talking about quantum religion. I don't think you get more. Like close in entangled dynamic before really good pictures to valux grace he. He does a lot of like where you can actually see the baby inside. It's usually like super fully formed and already head down kind of like depiction but like all of the were And the connection between the two More obscene fun things like between like the breastfeeding and like the neurological going to the brain. And then like from the mom. The whole thing dude. It's really cool really love alex. Do yeah her to do already in the mardi all in on this. I don't know if you'd call it. I mean it's a church in the sense of like texas. I don't even think that it is just a big like that face thing that i showed you. It's just like he starting at church. That's always a good. it's a place. It's something that they've taken a long time to create because it's all of his type of artwork like i can't even describe it. I will will find that link so you can see it new undescribable. Whenever you're you can describe it when looking at it but to when you're not seeing it but it's the space he is created and it is all of it is his type of artwork. And you hit in the face of color color and shape and Like these primal. Like dm like The visuals we'll say he's levi's games for. That's what i call but it took a really long time to create. I think that exhibit. That i showed you is at meow wolf which is in arizona. Meow wolf is all about this huge interactive installments. Mike come until i go. Nineteen fifties style. Kitchen open up the fridge. That's a for that. I as a slide and it takes you into place or obscene. Go inside of washing machine refrigerator. Yeah look at me out. Wolf though is really quite. I've always wanted to do one of those either for halloween. Or i want to do something with my birthday. I wanna go to arizona at least one time for my birthday much. Is the man of the sharks. Yeah it's one of the doma sedona. Donut ship said down down seven times. So i'm into lower shaqra shockers like into bed so this is like sake. Roller root chakra. Breastfeeding trippy risk. Feeding is still not understood but not understood. Let me know. I say we. General science knows like what happens. But how and why. I don't when the connection like when the baby's on the breast breastfeeding the The enzymes in the mouth can change the breastmilk. The breastmilk is specific for the baby. Would it needs of that moment. Yeah which is crazy. Man like how that shit works man. I don't go into enzymes shit. I'm sure that's true or is it like that quantum relationship or is it something deeper spiritual or it's probably all of it like mixed together. You know what i mean. But that when i heard that i was like that's that's why would only wanted kids. Sick breath moats different colored. Yeah because mr was experiencing it because she you know obviously you get a deep freezer full different colors. They're to learn that. I was like i heard you can like put that in there. Bath water and things like that to help them skin stuff. Yeah but most moms that. I know they're like don't fuck waste at breast milk better. Not this. Gold assures going into his mouth. Don't waste it gonna learn that in school. I was like well. How does it happen. And no one could really give me the emulate like some like enzymes and yada yada yada but you keep asking how and why becomes the point where they're like. I don't know yeah. I was just like. That's probably the thing i appreciate. The most about like four ten year olds but why and online. I don't know nothing sometimes under his know anything because he asked me why so many towns. I'm like no hawaii. You asked me why seven times. I'll give you five answers and the to the other last two. It's just like. I don't know dude i was like so he asked me some questions. Sometimes i'm like man. I don't know man houses park core skills go was pretty good man. He's doing good at parker. It says a new hobby. So if you're a poor core is you should youtube that shit. yeah so that's been gymnastic urban gymnastics. Yeah go on the point. A to point b in a creative fast way. Yeah the description of it. yeah. I think so. That's cool so he's a big little kid beginner class so but they do have like. Have you ever go. Instagram post posters pictures everywhere. I just made pictures and tournament. Game in I i did get a picture. Turn into a poster. An artist commissioned a picture of meet andrei in a marley. Dog just recently passed and they put it together and trippy looking. Yeah and this is a canvas. It's gonna be like fucking. Yeah so i see there is big enough. I'm to put it up saving either a bookcase for their or something. I don't know how big it is. They so it's a good spot. Yeah yeah i'll show you once. I get it. It's mind chill dot com not. They don't sponsor show or anything. I just bought a art from in fucking awesome. So the picture of it looks cool. So that's going to be sweet chippy. Stuff man he stuff. Which i'm really like in our color scheme. So you got whole little like tied i on you. And then he got the blues to match. And then i got my blues and greens and a green shirt. Okay hundred shirt. I don't wear undershirts. Yeah it's not a thing. I do like where it makes me feel safe. That's fair it's like a little safety boys because it's tighter than the over shirt so it's just like it's just a little hug hug. We distribute like they don't understand milk like how that connection happens like that's wild man and it's almost instantaneously changes isn't not like oh. Let me change eight hours or what. You need now bloop. Yeah i believe. It's i mean i guess once the first abacha's in there is eight. I think the next one is exactly when he i think is how it works out to be wrong. I believe it's almost instantaneously couch and be like. Oh i see the enzymes. We need to change. Now it's crazy. I don't think it can be enzymes man or whatever but that's close them. That's another thing Costume callosum bill. Donahue he talks about that The land comic no. He's he's a garbage the other guy. Yeah he's like goes from the class that he's teaching looks like any regular sunday school class like adult sunday school class by learning and he takes things directly from the bible. And he's like hey. Have you thought about it this way. So he does like the land of milk and honey where you know to choose the right cash and the jews wandered into For the forty years In the milk and honey talks about your gland and your patera gland. 'cause you're pinedale glenn can produce. Emt he literally talks about it. And how d. Mt is a honey. It is honey colored as a golden. Yeah to golden whenever you see like crystal form. It is a golden color original something somewhere. I can't in our bodies physically make milk. But he's talking about a brain going to the land of milk and honey is creating that connection so that you can come into your piney. Glen understand how to activate. It is crazy when you look at this old teachings through that lens fits. Oh it's all bill donahue does as he talks about this connection between like especially for people like us who grew up with the bible like no. This is the word of god. And you're like okay. Okay and then you have in the beginning was the word and the word was god and then you have like hey. Words are sound vibration and spells in create everything. Create everything and that is our matter and like the whole vibration. That's exactly what he goes into. It's phenomenal profits favor. Every time i got to get into the and he'll he just goes through exactly like you wouldn't sunday school. He just goes through. Different chapters. Goes through like luke. And john. And mark the word of god and mike or the words of jesus the whole thing. I felt combat it differently. Yeah the cool thing about teaching besides their ancient and you could still have to tease them. Out and steady them. Barbarians wrote this down basically. Yeah and then even now in our sophisticated time you still have to tease it out and learn and study so applicable but there's so many layers look at those teachings in so many different lenses so many layers in. It's so cool because it so many different lenses zone here. He's top notch. There's stuff that does that. Where if you look at it from this way. It doesn't work get from this way. So all those teams almost all of them. I guess you look at it from different wage. Like oh yeah that works at work on that and then he will bring it into like hinduism and taoism. Hinduism lately brings a lot of those like connections to and it's just like but then he also brings like the science of everything he's great. Bill gets so excited beaver enough. I don't like it like if they're really excited. And it's really good is really. I like listening to them on the way to places. He's got like our long little. Blurbs sometimes i feel their energy and even care about i can't think is a little google bill donahue the two people you're going to get one's a politician not that guy he ain't it nothing about that guy but if you see bill donahue ended the craziest thing is this like it's being recorded on like vhs. Some of them are not even that old like maybe two but just the fact that they're recorded like quarter early old school. Yeah so like. It looks very we'll recording but have the record at the bottom but you can definitely tell it's like a tape and it's kind of in the back of the room so sometimes you can't hear the questions from the people in the room but he'll write things down on the board and it's just it you know it's him at the front of the classroom. We were under a thrift shop and there was a vcr clue sign. Couldn't even describe to him what it was because he had no frame of reference because i only have a dvd player. I don't even use. Dvd's anymore you know what i mean so i was just like as a. Yeah you film things on tape and you stick it in you play it. He's like what's the tape blessed boy but he didn't like his frame of reference sucks so bad i could even give them like. Yeah it's like a dvd. but older. because we don't even use these stream everything we don't use. dvd's like is kind of like a video game disc but for movies like any stick. It ends up in la. Yes i watched the. Dvd video are vhs combo hambo but also had like you know. I was born in ninety so i went from like ratchet technology to like. Now i think i'll those you could like record a tape or dvd onto a. Yeah yeah go the other way but to be able to take vhs recorders blockbuster. Be con- reminded. Did you ever go to like a data chain video store in the a hole in the wall. I mean ingles used to have one really so. Have you went to win that strip mall. Whatever they.

Remember that shit would click on me like fuck to and then like a spiritual side like constantly staying in your route and shockers and never allowing yourself to like come higher up. That's kind of the whole thing behind absent. He's saving the seed saving the oil. You told me about it so that you could. Bill donahue didn't talk about this santos talked about it. I like santos. I forget his last name. He's got like an italian last name. He also did a lot of this stuff between like the bible and he did a little bit of like astrology. He went to like how the cosmos kind of move and unrelated to the stories of the bible. That's cool He was a little rough. I mean sixteen year old me was like definitely on point with this guy. Because he's like jesus and he was just a little condescending. And i was like i don't either kind of negativity moved past that stage my wife but he had some good information. But i like bill donahue more as fuck. I want to check that out. That sounds cool. What was i saying. I got into coudl leave here recently. I've been trying to get it up.

Ep 256: The Met Gala, Bennifer in Venice, Megan & Kourtney, Britneys Engagement, & More.

"Mariah carey is one of the most successful singers of all time but her rags-to-riches story isn't exactly a fairytale on an all new season of even the rich. You'll hear the astonishing story more carries rise to fame and the heartaches trauma she survived along the way billboard name reich harry artists of the decade in the nineties. She's won five grammys and sold more than one hundred million albums worldwide. But in the late nineties all came crashing down leaving the world to wonder which she ever reached the heights of pop superstar again. Even the rich starts with mariah's rise to stardom when she used her sh- ordinary once in a lifetime musical talents to escape a dangerous upbringing. Only to find herself tied and music. Executive tommy mottola the man who helped maker dreams reality. After finally finding the strength to leave matola one thousand nine hundred eight where is doubled in struggle to rebuild her career to prove herself in the world that she truly is the greatest singer of her generation. Even the rich has the rollercoaster story. Mariah's rise fall in comeback and is told in a way that i think you guys will find really really interesting. Listen to even the rich on apple. Podcasts amazon music or you can listen ad free by joining one plus in the laundry. Hi guys. i'm emma back another episode over the pop culture focus. Podcast really all my god. What are we to be a fan of pop culture. Like i am so so grateful. This was probably the busiest pop culture week. We've got a very long time. I feel like the last two weeks. Were just straight chaos in the best way possible. I am so so grateful for that. I know and last week we ended up doing like a mid week. Recap basely because the john laney stuff was happening and jennifer lawrence pregnancy in brittany and that kind of help us over but then on friday. It's jalen bannon. Venice which that could be an episode in of itself. The vm as the mccallum brittany engaged. It's just like this kind of stuff. When we were in the height of quarantine and it was really kristen. Cavallari and jay cutler keeping us going this to me was the late at the end of the tunnel. Oh completely forget about the height of quarantine. If you'd have told me four weeks ago that we'd be able to do a episode on monday as regular then a midweek recap and that have enough for the following. Monday slash tuesday episode. I don't know if i would have believed you. Yeah this shit we prayed on. We're so lucky. I know and also the other thing is i feel like especially for the last week and a half or so. The city of new york has kind of been a character in all of this. It's really been the backdrop for these events and that brings with it a whole other energy. Oh it's so special because there's been so much that's been going on. I mean you have new york fashion week of the us open with a million and one celebrity spotting you had the as in brooklyn like obviously the met gala. There's just been so much going on in from new york to be the backdrop of all of that and just like as usual the epicenter of culture. It's unbelievable it felt special. Did i so i really do. Okay you ready. I so ready. So we're gonna start out with the mac allah as you guys know. The theme was in america. A lexicon fashion and i think the best way that i can start this out by saying that theme was definitely loosely interpreted and portrayed by most of the attendees. Do you think that's fair to say. I do think it's fair to say i. There's been a lot of discussion about it. In terms of feeling like people took theme because it was kind of open to interpretation and a lot of ways they i. I don't wanna say did the bare minimum but were kind of able to wear outfits dresses that suited them rather than the theme. I don't think that it was people using it as an excuse. I just think the theme wasn't fully understood. I think it was probably a combination of the two. Honestly right like i remember in two thousand nineteen obviously with when it was camp. Had the phrase understood. The assignment been used widely back then it would have been so applicable to so many different people like even looking back on. Those looks was like oh my god. They understood the assignment this year like they kind of understood the assignment in certain ways but then again. What was the assignment right. That that's really what it was. It was like the assignment may be wasn't explained clearly enough. I have to say i don't know if this is a hot. Take i think the first thing who best understood the assignment was sierra. Will that kind of brings us into the conversation of like you choose between. Are you judging the looks based on who you think stuck most on theme really got it and like played it up or are you doing it based on just do like this as a fashion statement and the two sometimes don't coexist. That's okay right. And i think that this year at least for me it was much easier to judge it based on like. Do i like this outfit. Like is this the piece. I wanna see them in. Was this the red carpet. Look that's my favorite and can be twisted into fitting the theme rather than like the obvious. Oh my god. This is so unbelievably on theme right. And that's why. I think just in our effort to kind of be clear in our personal assignment. I think when we talk about it. Let's make that distinction. Because there's a lot where i loved it. I didn't really care whether or not it was on theme but important just to mention as we go through these. Yeah absolutely so as you guys know the four co-chairs where amanda gorman billy irish tim the shallow may nato sokha. Atta was in this beautiful. I thought oscar de la renta floral gown. I always love watching her when she walks up. And on you're watching like e. news red carpet coverage because no matter what she's wearing it's not even so much about her outfit is just kind of the way that the leaves the room for a moment as she's walking up the stairs yes absolutely. That's the best way to describe it so the way that we kind of do this. Is we put together our personal best stress and favorites and then also just notable looks that are definitely worthy of talking about. I have a feeling we will have a lengthy discussion on the came crashing of at all. Do you think that's true. yeah. I'm ready for that discussion. I also want to say before we even start. How does it feel to have these things to talk about. Because i feel like the absence of the met last year it was a big deal in terms of you know pop culture. It's a huge night of the year. And so i'm just happy even have them to talk about something. I truly love so much about the met. And i mean there's a million things but i feel like when we get into the conversation about awards shows the one thing that we're like okay. Here's where we have our base of the discussion. Here's where we have the most to say it's the red carpet and then we kind of have to force a conversation about the actual event with the met gala. You don't have to do that. It's just red carpet. You don't have to fake anything right because you get nothing you really know nothing else other than you know the few stories you get some insight from social media but it's not this broadcast which you're right. There's something actually really kind of liberating about that. And i don't know if this is an opinion that a lot of people have their something. I absolutely love about the fact that you really don't know much of what goes on inside because it's one of those things where it's like. The curtains never going to be pulled back like whatever your view of the macau is that takes place inside and what it's like for celebrities of that caliber to be inside in one place all mingling gal like you don't ever have have that illusion ruined because no one's posting things in no one is showing you a livestream video of what's going on inside like whatever you have in your head of. What event is is what that event is right and the other thing is that they don't often stay there for that long. I feel like you saw pictures of ron. A bunch of other people that came back just a few hours after started because the real kind of moment of the night. I think typically goes on at the after parties but i mean listen. Zoe and channing. Tatum were in and out. I have not stopped thinking about that phone with them. Leaving since we saw last night it had the exact same energy. You know what it was when you saw your friend leaving like a frat with a guy like oh. I got epic right early. You oughta snapchat. And you're like holy shit. I cannot believe she with evt's yes that's exactly what it is accepted channing. Tatum zoe kravitz. It's another level it's like literally they walked out of the mcallen. I was like you guys are going back to your hotel room before and after party and that is the greatest energy you could bring to this night. I recognize it. A lot of people thought that the tailoring on his suit was in great which it probably wasn't the best but the way that his handsomeness has elevated for me. Since the joining with zoe they should do studies on it really. Because it's not that. I never thought he was attractive. Of course i did. But i am telling you seeing him standing next to her. It's another level. It elevates him. I really truly believe it. It elevates him almost to a different version of himself. I so agree. Also a lot of people had a lot of things to say about him just wearing a black talk and i will say yeah. It's unbelievably boring. Is there anything more american that you can think of that. A man in a black talks. I know and also i think that i just associate him with like a heightened sense of casualness. Always like if i if you'd asked me what what does he wear around the house. I would say like jeans. Tim's in no-shirt. That's just the way that. I envision channing tatum whether that's accurate or not and so i did like to see him in this because for me it felt out of character. I thought he looked just unbelievable. And my advice for everybody. Like if you're a man shave your head. I what stopping you. You see that. And i mean you think are you just saying that because of justin channing. Okay i those are two pretty prime example. I just think if you're a man shave your head what's stopping you a really good test of that would be harry styles. No don't not have not saying okay. Let's get into it. Let's start out by saying i fully. I'm very happy to acknowledge. Potentially a deep sense of like fashion naievty that we both may have in the sense of. I'm okay with just not getting it and not liking something. Because i don't have a heightened enough fashion sense to get it so. I'd like to preface this entire conversation with that and i don't want to pretend for one second that i do. No not at all. I mean you and i both wrote down our list separately and we put them together. They were pretty similar on top of both of our lists were kendall. She was in this gorgeous. Von she was inspired. By audrey hepburn as elisa doolittle on my fair lady and this is a perfect example where i think objectively people with think she looked beautiful however a lot of people felt a little bit bored by it. Felt that this is kind of her. Mo which i get it it was. It wasn't anything super different than what we've seen before. But i guess. I just so deeply internalised the motto of like. If it ain't broke don't fix it. It's very similar to weigh. The jennifer aniston approaches the red carpet. And i guess if you're seeking something really knew you would be bored by this for me. I was just blown away. i can't. I can't validate any kendall slander. Because i thought everything about it was perfect. It was on theme her channeling audrey hepburn who also often words. You auntie like. Kendall looked unbelievable. I thought it was easily the best local night like my top top top and i cannot validate anybody on otherwise i know i. I understand what they're coming from in terms of the okay. We've seen this before. But i could see a ten times over and not be mad. Yeah i'm to give it to me every single time. I don't care. Emma chamberlain in louis vuitton was also another one one of the first on the carpet. Because i think she was also doing some corresponding but i thought looked phenomenal. She looked incredible and everyone was pretty much in agreement on that. I didn't see anybody who had a negative thing to say about that. Look and she is. Somebody who i honestly believe has such an unbelievable amount of influence over fashion that maybe she doesn't get the credit for from audiences that are a little bit older a little bit naive to what she puts out. But if you look on tick talk and twitter. When emma chamberlain puts out an outfit that she likes every single person especially her fan in which is so big is like. That's the look for the season. Like that's what i wanna be wearing. So it is so undeniable for her to have a place at the mekel because she is so unbelievably deserving of it because her influence on on fashioned. It's just undeniable. The emma chamberlain conversation as it applies to fashion is really interesting. Because obviously she started out on social media and horizon meteoric. And i think you know she's unbelieveably famous successful all of those things but if you compare her just for a second to somebody like addison who also started on take talk and clearly not as far along in her careers. Emma is but. I don't think that addison's jumped to. Fashion has been nearly as seamless as amazon. Sense where people can understand that. She's trying to elevate her style. But even if you love her like we do as a personality and you think that she may have a career in acting. Nobody is giving her that same level of respect in the fashion world. At least yet where's emma. She goes from youtube to being an ambassador for louis vuitton and nobody even blinks twice because it seems so fitting whereas like i'm going to compare it to charlie demilio for a second obviously super fucking famous so successful but when she made her way into louis vitton. I don't think she was met with the same level of immediate respect as emma was when she did. Yeah absolutely lesson. There was a whole conversation on top of that to be had about the newcomers at the met gala in who was quote deserving to be there who wasn't people had so many opinions on it and i think going into the night. There was this expectation that people had in their minds that it was going to be overrun by like new faces and people who weren't quote deserving of being there and i didn't get that sense at all it didn't feel like the tech talk show it didn't feel like the or show it felt like the mecca if felt like your. Is this unbelievable gathering of the top caliber a-list celebrities that you have who've made waves in fashion and also staples at the gala. And you had them ushering in a new generation of people who will then make those statements in the future. The way i feel about somebody like addison dixie. Being there is like no. I don't believe at this point in their careers. Their fashion is elevated. The point where you look at them. And you're like oh my god of course it to no-brainer that they're going to be there but that doesn't mean that one day they won't be that doesn't mean that one day they're not gonna reach that level of stardom where it's a no brainer that they're going to be at the cow and you're not even going to blink twice about it and i think one of the important things about this mec. Allah was being able to say like well every single year. We have people that we look at. What are they doing year this year. You happen to have a couple more of them but all of those people that you've looked at in the past and said like what are they doing. Your namely kim kardashian you then a couple years later can't imagine america without them so i don't i believe that this ushering in a new talent and new faces in the world of fashion only benefits like the future of the mecca. You grow with the mecca. Eventually all of these people that you're saying like oh they're just influencers They're just tick talkers. Are going to start to make major waves in fashion. And you're going to be able to say. Wow i remember i met gala zanna roberts. Rossi was talking about that on live from the red carpet. She said whether or not you like it. They are influential. The amount of followers and again life isn't about followers but in terms of influence across the board with fame. Type things. There is a direct correlation. And i would say so. Many of these quote social media. Stars are far more influential with their followers with their fans than your typical mainstream celebrity. Because the connection to the audience is so different and how that translates to fashion is going to be very interesting and yet addison's a really good example of somebody who's not there yet in the fashion world but potentially may work her way or may never. That's a that's also okay but yes the watching the reaction from the public to like. What are they doing here to. Oh yeah this makes sense that. In general across the board no matter who the person is is fun to watch. Yeah and i think no matter what you were opinion. Going into the mecca. Was i think you had to leave with the takeaway of like okay. This wasn't the spectacle i created in my mind in terms of it being all just new people in new faces because you had met gala royalty there who've been there for years and years in every single year make a huge flash and is just the star of the show every single year and it's not like their presence was diminished by anybody new being there it was just like this perfect integration of the different levels of hollywood in the different people that especially this year in with tick-tock in with the pandemic that you are just learning and getting used to and watching them branch off because again the people who are there. It's not just that they're tick talkers. If you call. Addison tick talker like your objectively wrong. If you call. Dixie tick talk your objectively wrong. They have put themselves into such a nother cowger by branching off the app and doing things in a way that they're trying to cement their place in hollywood so it's not just like oh my god wire. These tick talkers here. It's like yeah. Maybe they started on Talk but they're doing it in a way. they're working. Their way of being deserving of being there is separate apart from the app yeah completely completely and also this is kind of a separate conversation when you think of like the biggest example of a stable which would be jaylo a year ago. She is the one. That's faced having charlie demilio because she wants to work together so then you kind of have this moment of like. If you're a hater quote it's like way. How can i not want this person. Standing next to the staples staples are the people that are wanting to help. Repel their careers. You know. it doesn't really work out like that. right exactly normany. and that mustard. Yellow valentino. I thought it was one of my tops to die for to die for kate. Hudson in the liping. Michael kors fuck me up. How are you that. We get to talk about kate hudson. It's one of my greatest choice. It's not that often when she's in the news cycle newly engaged kate. Hudson may i add. I know you even to outline. I know because honestly. I have no idea that weren't already married. I know because. I think all you know they've known each other forever. They grew up together. So i think people forget that. Yeah okay justin halley. He was drew how she was in. Saint laurent my stance on it. Even really talk about it. Obviously she looked fucking incredible was address a little bit boring. Yeah but that's why i was saying earlier. I don't necessarily care about boring. I can celebrate somebody looking great. I wasn't into his luck. They looked so hot together. I can't lie and say i was into it though. Oh interesting i his. I thought he looked great. I mean again. It's kind of the magnitude of them being together. That's so overwhelming for me. Because i think they just bring out the best in each other especially from like a fashion perspective. But i did think that his ability to wear drew house and kind of design something himself for him to wear to. This was such a moment for him. And i was so happy for him to be able to have that totally totally i just. I don't know maybe. It was about the Combination with shoes. But then again i'm willing to accept maybe i just don't get it and that's okay the shoes i can understand the shoes i can take away but i thought the rest of the outfit. He amazing something you want to talk about in terms of men. Was jack harlow in that. Tommy hilfiger suit and there was this quote from vanity fair article that we wanted to read. It says. The connection between harlow and hilfiger is deeper than shared sensibility. It turns out that carlos grandfather used to live down the street from the designer quote. My whole life. My grandma told me that he and tommy grew up in the same street and that their families knew each other harlow explained the first time. Tommy and i got on the phone. Told him my grandpa's last name. And he immediately remembered inside that he could see my grandpa's house from his front porch. Something about this connection. May this whole partnership feel more organic special. i loan. We got a little anecdote like that. That you would have never known about when i first when i first saw the tweet of it has vanity fair tweeted in than like obviously closed on the article. And you get the full back story for like the headline was like tommy hilfiger giancarlos. Grandpa lived on the same street. I was like what central park south growing up in new york. We know that apartment like the back of our hand. Every time i pass it says well pitcher the pause unlike tommy. Are you home. Also kiki palmer. She was one of the co hosts of vogues livestream. She was a sergio robinson gown. I'm sure you saw it. Cut out in the back. Inspired by diana ross. She also. I think i would say top six of the night. Yes she will consent. And i absolutely die for the idea of her. Look being inspired by diana ross in tracy ellis ross being there at the same time like it was such a beautiful moment. I felt like there were a lot of things like that when if you took a step back and like understood the context of people walking at the same time or whatever it was it needed a little bit more special. Yeah absolutely jus- a-list out some others zoey deutch. Purple dodgy carly kloss carolina herrera yara shahidi and that christian dior holy. Fuck inspired by josephine baker. I thought to me that was that was really something. Yeah that was unbelievable. Look of the night. Also anybody who was in red i felt like you had 'em rata john hudson like it was just color of the night. I felt like megan fox. Obviously she looked insane. I just can't get behind the hair. And i don't know if that's me not getting it but i i would have loved like asleep back ponytail. Yeah i would have to. I mean listen. I can't even take anything away from reagan fox because the past two nights between the vm. As in the macau oshii so killed it. So if i didn't love her hair one of the nights i can just take that i mean. Don't get me wrong not being picky here. But if i had to choose the hair would have been the accessory that i liked the least right so at was in tom. Ford for gucci. Also this beautiful readdress and she looked obviously spectacular. But when i saw both author look really familiar and upon looking into it. It's the same dress or very similar to a courtney ward to the two thousand nineteen christmas party. When she hosted at her house which i have to imagine was an oversight. Oh okay so my question was honestly because then saw this everywhere like it was a we. I think we figured it out kinda early. It was all over twitter over instagram. And it's the same dress like no no question about that. Just addison's had sleeves on it. My question was like. Is this just a new dress or did you call. Courtney was like listen. i really need a medical. No i think that if especially given the way that people crashing so much for not so much but if corny little bit of credit for like helping her is. I don't think that she would have necessarily done. This knowingly could be wrong it. I mean listen though. There is absolutely no way that. Addison didn't send courtney a picture of her luck. And courtney responded. I wear that to the christmas so she at least would have known. It wasn't like a total surprise and a total oversight. I don't think it clearly. Yea i honestly don't know. I i mean i would've loved like similar to megan fox clicked back ponytail. I think the whig was the only thing. I wasn't fully into but again it's like you almost have to look for criticism years. Everybody looked so beautiful. Even if you weren't into the actual like every detail. Yeah i so agree wilma's also in those three different for saatchi office. It was different. But i would compare it in this huge compliment to lady gaga brandon maxwell display in two thousand nineteen of like. She's going to take those stairs and make performance. I feel like that is kind of what he did yet. Totally is i mean. A lot of people are saying that they were kind of underwhelmed by him doing that. Just because lady gaga had done it the previous mac allah. I just think that when law does something it is so performance because that is he is like obviously in the absolute best way possible. And that's also who lady gaga is. So i think that on some level it was an image to the fact that she had done that previously and also he just completely made it his own so i was all onboard for that. Yeah i was on martinez. Also listen was rana's look one of my favorites. No but there is something about her as at walking carpet together. It just feels so right. Yeah i personally. I mean i loved riana. I thought what your was insane. She just she is the mack out like when i think of the mecca. I think over yana and when she wasn't there in twenty nineteen it was probably the most notable absence the met gala had an even this year when there were people missing. I mean blake lively. Wasn't there as day wasn't huge absences. I don't think anything compares to amac gala without riana. Janas with you. In terms of like the kylie apps thing which. I'm sure we'll get a do when she initially announced it. I thought it was a really big deal. But then i realized quickly it was way more of an anticipatory thing because once the carpet started going i wasn't even thinking about her not being there and i really do think even though she always makes statement there are other people that i associate so much more closely with fashion like hypothetically speaking if i was choosing between kylie not being there and riana tara ten times i'm choosing i'd rather kylie not be there because i feel like brianna when it comes to the mac allergist means something different no i completely agree i mean when kylie. I announced that she wasn't going and she had posted on instagram story. And there are rumors already kind of flying around in the days leading up to it. I was kind of like. I don't want to do alto kylie like i love when kylie to walk the carpet together a love it being such a big family affair. But her absence wasn't felt in the way that. I predicted it to be like i think that had i been anticipating pregnancy reveal at the macau. I would have been like. Oh my god. of course. she didn't show up the one time where to get confirmation on her pregnancy. Would have been so epic and she's not even there. I would have been far more disappointed than the fact that like. She announced that a couple of days ago. We got a couple of looks from her from new york fashion week which we never expected to get. We've never seen kind of highly pregnant walking out on the town in full. Glam really doing it. So that was such a special thing to get her absence at the met gala in conjunction with those things didn't make me feel like it was such a loss. Yeah i think that if there wasn't that video and we hadn't seen some the other new york fashion week pregnant looks. It would have been a big deal. I definitely think so. you know. It's interesting because when she initially announced the pregnancy which had been speculated and we all kind of knew it. But once you really everybody was just so excited that she made it public and we were all thinking about storming being a big sister and i feel like it took a day or a couple of hours depending on who you are to have the secondary realization of like holy shit. We're gonna see pregnant kylian action because you realize we never got. That was stormy so you don't even have an idea as to her pregnancy fashions whereas with kim or with so many other people you have those looks ingrained in your mind. We never got. It was kylie. We got one photo of her and a big law t-shirt so this time it was like this is basically the first time the world has ever seen it right exactly. I guess that brings us into kim and blonde siaka. I'm ready. i'm ready for the discussion. I think i am too. I feel like at this point. You guys know the impact that therapy has had on my life. I definitely have spoken about it. A bunch on this podcast and kind of just in general my stance on really prioritizing our mental health. Which i know at times can be easier said than done. And that's why. I wanna keep talking to you about better help. It's not a crisis line. It's not self help. What it is is professional counseling that's done securely online and so the way that it works is you can schedule video or phone sessions. I have a lot of friends that prefer that video kind of face to face over the computer for me. Personally i prefer phone but whatever works for you. You can schedule that you can also message your counselor at any time and you're gonna get a timely and thoughtful response. I think probably the thing that i value the most about this company is that they understand that. Sometimes it can take a bit to get that perfect therapeutic match so they make it easy and free to change counselors if needed and the entire thing is more affordable than traditional offline. Counseling and also financial aid is available.

One million people have taken charge of their mental health again. That's better help. H. e. l. p. dot com slash. Celebs so i think something important to note. Is that when kim arrived. In new york for the met gala. She was also in similar balenciaga. Look the black face mask the whole nine. This is also not too dissimilar to what she wore to a few of connie's donde listening party so we have kind of seen her teasing this. We also czar recently in a similar. Look at jeff. Lethem's birthday party at no malveaux. So did it come as the big shock. No i don't know if any of us necessarily understood that all of these were lead up to the met that is something that maybe we realized after the fact but it wasn't as shocking as it may be would have been if there were i kind of all these subtle elite ups that being said. I just still did not i with this. Here's my thought on it. When i first saw it. It's impossible to have the look and examine it without having the conversation of everything that into donde and connie the album cover being black kanye on following him and then re following her once or instagram icon was changed to black candidate. Only following people on scrambled with black icons the looks for donde conde having the face covering like all of that can't be left out of the conversation so my initial thought. When i first saw him i was like this is your met gala. Your here why are you then doing this whole thing. That's kind of part of what your husband or ex-husband's ordeal as like. Why are you not doing something for yourself. So that was my initial thought. I think that once. I read some of the things online and the discussion. I saw tick toxin people talking about it and what people had to say my understanding of it kind of flip flop from like what is this. Connie esque looked like while. You're really doing this for yourself. And you're making a statement. I don't necessarily have to lake this outfit or grew with the fact that you've just completely covered yourself in order to appreciate some of the rumors and the discussion and the conversation points that take place around this outfit because whether you liked it or not. That was the most discussed look of the night by far. I mean everybody has something to say about the. It was all over the place. And that's always what kim is going for. That is kim's entire life that's kim's entire career so when you examine it from the point of view of like how does this fit into kim and how does him fit into the conversation about just american fashion. That is when it starts to go into a line for me to make a little bit more sense right exactly. Actually think i wanna read the post from the crashing colloquium and we can get into some of those other conversations but levels enough. I said this before. It wasn't connie that she was with which i'm sure you all know by now but for the first at least ten minutes everybody thought so. It ended up actually being the creative director of balenciaga. So not him false alarm. Although i would say for at least the first ten minutes everybody thought it was. I texted you. There's no way they're not back together if they're doing this together. And they're mad cow. When it wasn't him i was like okay. Still still in the clear right. So the crashing cloak in post read she. Looks like a mannequin singly. Kim mannequin this in a way has been her whole career also i find myself considering the blackness of it which allows her to be projected upon and demands decoding which has also been her career. Finally thinking about the dead hollywood x. Inspired silhouette theory you know. Celebrities icon icon when you can recognize their outline without seeing their full embodiment. There's a lot of them. Connie and the matrix in the mix to maybe even a shadow self more importantly sometimes debated by color theorists whether black is even a color black the color results from the absence of complete. Absorption are visible lay. Kim has been both a black hole and our reflection of the culture for a long time. Now this is going to be one of the most triggering talked about looks from the night for for an american theme. It's perfect which was very similar to a lot of other takes that we saw we'll put the linked to a few other take toxin the description. There was a woman today. Also talking about a basically saying you know. Kim being so recognizable by nothing other than her body and that being a statement on her impacts on american fashion is another thing that she was going for. So it's kind of like the way that i viewed as okay once. I have some of those more i guess you can call them intelligent or knowledgeable understandings. I get it a little more. It still doesn't change. How much i like it. That discussion about it. Being hersal away and kim is just recognizable based on nothing other than the shape of her body and how kim can walk into a room covered head to toe black. Not an inch of anything showing and you know that. That is kim kardashian. I think is such a special statement on her it again. I would have liked to see her in something different. I would've liked to see her face. Like first and foremost but to beacon and be able to make that statement is so important to who she is and who. She is in the world of fashion. That i can understand it in terms of interpretation. Not really for me in terms of just like a red carpet. Look yeah. I also think a lot about what we were saying where she's kind of been building this up and so we didn't realize at the time but all of these looks kind of. Were getting us to this major point and on one end i get that. I also wonder if this would have been more well received. Nothing really matters that was received but would have been more well received if there was more of a shock factor whereas it didn't really feel shocking necessarily because she's done such similar things right. I think it had had been a statement on. Its own completely separate. Apart from anything you had done recently. Anything about his album. I would have been able to appreciate it a little more again. I think i still would have had that same thought of like okay. It's not what. I wanna see you in but i can understand the statement that you're making having it again like you said combined with kind of seeing it in the past and with the kind of at all just made me feel like it. It lost its impact for me. I don't know maybe that's just me because everybody else seemed to kind of have that reaction as if they had never seen it before in. This was completely shocking and surprising to see her on the red carpet. Especially at the macau. Like this can't say. I was overly surprised but i will say that no matter what you thought of it. It accomplished what it was supposed to accomplish it. I guess technically she understood the assignment. I guess i just didn't really understand her understanding of the assignment but it doesn't really matter what the fuck i think right. The kim sola is so iconic in it of itself that it represents. American fashion is unbelievable. Statement on its own when you dissect that and you really understand it. That is such an impactful conversation to have in terms of kim and fashion and the mecca and all of that as an outfit when you're looking at it objectively of just like what are my is seeing you walk across this red carpet and it has a completely different impact on me. Yeah and you know what you're right As far as my view on it like the connie association just naturally takes away from it in my opinion. And i'm sure that that has to do with just in general how i don't really Typically gravitate towards connie style of things. And i so appreciate him more when she stands on her own from that. But i guess that is part of the deal and it doesn't matter we're having the conversation so she one. That's that's the goal. She always ones. She always wins. I mean fucking love when she went. I don't ever want her not win. A obviously say yeah so on monday. You know kylie makes that stories gray background wait writing just says i'm so sad i couldn't make it this year. I can't wait to see all the looks and doom wide posted about this a few hours earlier and there were definitely rumblings Just in terms of things that we had heard and apparently it really was a last minute decision for reasons that we don't know you know. Once nikki nauseous tweets came out and she kind of basically said that the met was a vaccinated event. People started to wonder that why kylie's not there because she's not activated. The reason that that theory is necessarily one i subscribe to is because it did feel more last minute and you would assume that if it was fully vaccinated internet they would have known about that for a while now so that is why it feels to me like. That's not the reason. I don't know that's that was the thought that i had any. Listen it totally could have been it. Totally could have been in. Maybe kylie their thought that she'd be able to get an exemption if she tested negative or Any number of reasons related to it or not related to it but it did definitely feel last minute. I will say that didn't feel like at all like a planning that. She had an advanced and she was just going to announce it the night before because obviously we knew she was in new york. We knew that it was her intended goal to goto. That gal so what happened in those twenty four to forty eight hours is a little bit confusing. And i don't know if we'll ever have clarity on that but obviously sparked a very large conversation about whether or not. she's accented. Yeah it's pretty on brand though in terms of like hypothetically speaking say this really was a total. Osman decision added any of them. It's the surprising whereas like if this were to have been kim. Even all saint circumstances she was pregnant. It could have been us and who knows what she's going through. Who could be a medical thing idea but the reaction to kim. Doing this would have been far more of a public like palpable shock. Yeah i mean yeah. It's it's kylie's mo with a million in one events that we've spoken about from the tiniest little things to big events where it's been like. I wonder if that will show up to it. Okay what doesn't show up to anything the To me seems like the exception for that because it is the biggest night in fashion and is probably the biggest. I in pop culture of the year especially for kylie again who's not going to be at the oscars emmy's or anything like that. Maybe at the grammys as travis's day but again this would have been her own thing so to me. I was more surprised that this is the event that she wasn't there for again. We don't know the reasons it could have been. A medical could have been any number of things. That like speculating take sensitivity away from. But just in terms of her pattern of behavior on the things she goes to. This is kind of for me. The allah is the exception to the rule of kylie will and won't show up to him what i expect her to so for her. Not be there even. If it was on brand it was still surprising. It was surprising. Just i mean the vaccination in could be only thinking. I think he's said this too earlier before we started recording is like if you wanna go down that line of thinking hypothetically speaking could be. She never had a plan on going. She knew that it was the vaccination was going to be an issue however it was never announced that it could seem like more of a last minute thing to take away speculation from vaccination. That's not my stance. I don't think that's the case. But if i'm really trying to play all sides here that's another argument. I love a conspiracy theory. We never are the ones who really ignite them. I feel like we more discussed them. I guess i was just igniting one. But i i. It's not one that i subscribe to you. But i was just trying to think about the full picture. Yeah me too. I mean they're so much to talk about from this knipe. Like what else do we want to say. There's we have a whole list of all of our favorite moments. Whatever it was it was fun. It was fun to happen. I'm just so glad that we had happened. We've podcast we can talk about me too. I know that the response to it again through tick-tock and what i've seen on twitter was just like a lot of people being really disappointed by the logs for me. I completely understand there. Were so many where i was like. This is this is just a ride carpet. Look this isn't this isn't gal realty. This isn't something that's going to be remembered for years and years. I will just say that the idea of this night being back in general and like the earth healing the galloping back and all of these people being in one place with so special in it of itself for me that i didn't necessarily need those looks to follow through to the extent that other people did. Yeah and of course it's all us. We look under the giant context of like. Is this entire thing a little bit ridiculous. Yes of course it is does go. You know it is for a good cause but just the drama of it. All and the self-importance of everybody there is astronomical. And so if you wanna look at it like and get super cynical you definitely can. But it's just personally for me. It's more fun not to 'cause i view it as entertainment. I view it. No different than watching a netflix show for an hour and a half or however long the red carpet coverage is i feel the same way you guys know how much i love this company and all of their food and just the delivery and the convenience of it all is called the car and it's an interesting company in their whole thing is basically that you should be able to seek pleasure in all areas of your life including me so they kind of focus on overall wellness.

Lo and ben affleck making first red carpet appearances a couple at the venice film festival on friday for his movie the last tool her in that white gown him and that blackhawks i. I'm almost upset that. We're recording this on tuesday. Because i don't know if i could ever recreate the way that i felt on friday although i do still think i'm processing it it was fucking everything like i'm going to remove any ounce of feeling self conscious about sounding dramatic on a podcast and i'm going to talk about it like i was talking about it. This rocks me. This gave me like the serotonin. I needed to get through the weekend to watch you. Process in real time was a gift. I didn't know what to do with myself. I didn't like. I mean you were another level like you. I really thought i was going to have to sedate you at one point going crazy about this. I will say for me. I did not realize the extent to which i needed to see a red carpet debut from them. I thought that between the pictures and the jenny from the block video kind of recreation shot seeing them around away. Like i thought i had gotten the content that i needed to really be so on board with us. They are such a gorgeous couple and fully immerse myself in the nostalgia of it. When i saw them on a red carpet i red carpet since two thousand and three almost like exactly to the day that they broke off their engagement to me. It was just another level. It was something that i had an experience with them. Yeah and i didn't think that was possible it was like you were watching royalty on the carpet and you know the best part about it. The entire internet reacted in the same way. Even people hate them as a couple who thinks performance who cannot get onboard. The jail was most self obsessed person in the world. They still could recognize the magnitude of this moment. It felt. i'm sorry in. The world of celebrity shit is historic to me. I really feel that way like i. I kept comparing and we were talking to the video of johnson and brad pitt backstage with awards which we later found out was nothing once. You see the full clip but those few seconds like the internet was really up in arms and it was. It was exhilarating. This to me topped. Because you didn't have to speculate us. What was going on. They were kissing. They were back together. They are confirmed back together. And they were this debut in such a regal classic way like honestly. It wouldn't have mattered if we didn't like her dress. But the fact that her dress was so objectively gorgeous also just played into like recognizing how momentous occasion this was. I couldn't agree more. And i think that one of the huge pieces of this. That was definitely one of the main conversations that took place at least on. Twitter was there is so much conversation pre jail about ben affleck the way he carried himself the almost the point where it became a joke. He was a medium like they're in. I mean that in a very funny almost positive way. But he wasn't the ben. Affleck that you're seeing now. We carried himself very differently. Almost no way relooked ben affleck. And you're like oh he looks kinda sad and to see him now with j. Lo looking insane and so handsome and so put together in so belonging with her and twitter lost their minds from that because it it's only been about a year since ben was kind of the me of twitter. The pictures of him going on walked on a day armies. Smoking cigarettes under his mass. Like you saw a different transformed. Ben affleck on this night. Oh it was like really remarkable. I just i don't know if he got you know what it felt like. You know how if you ever like a vitamin ivy. And you just look so recharged after that was him on like a grand scale. It looks like this motherfucker. Just got so many vitamin ivy's that's how i felt. He was glowing. He was so happy he was so proud for her. To be standing there next to me. It was like yes. This is that affleck that we know. This is the ben affleck. Where if i looked at him. And i didn't know about the back tattoo. I would never know whereas before and i tried to say this. Lovingly designed judgmental. If somebody told me about the back at you. I probably would believe it. Or is now if i didn't know and you told me about this back tattoo i would tell you there was no fucking way then asks backtrack to is the third character and all of this. It's like new york being third character. Fashion week exactly has to say also on top of all of this. He looked so good. They looked so good together with such a guide damn moment the best far of seeing them together. Was that one five second at the airport and a fan kind of runs up on them and tries to get a selfie with j. Lo and ben affleck so calmly steps in front of her and just puts his hand up and pushes this man away no security. It was just like the he was her protector in that moment and he did it in such a con. The hottest thing. I really have ever seen thought modest video on the internet right now then after pushing that man away from jaylo no guys. We're putting this lincoln. The description when i tell you this is the enemy of the. I'll come him like you need a minute when you see the way that you're right. It was so calm. It wasn't like some machine gun. Kelly shit it was like just such a subtle acknowledgement of like i will protect you in these moments and the security came immediately after but he was the first line of defense and i just can't think of something more attractive than ben affleck being the first line of defense. Exactly see telling you julie. This is why. I'm being like six three just adds to it. It's a hot commodity to find though it's not as easy as you make it out to be what to find the six three. I know very where it was just wild. It was like it was the best thing ever i. Don't i don't have anything really superintendent to say. I just i wish i could bottle me on friday. Throw it into you guys right now but i really hope that other people felt that way and i i think they do because we had posted something like i think kim posted about them. We storied. somebody responded to the story like who cares and we posted that obviously locking the person's name out and we wrote like presumably anybody actively following a celebrity news account. And when i tell you the amount of dm's that we received if people responding being like i care. I don't even care about the shit in eyecare was all validation that i need overwhelming amount of care for overwhelming for me. Being able to work out her mom was one of the biggest game changers. Because i personally just feel like there's a direct correlation between how workout and then how convenient it is and not having that travel time able to get an a really good workout at. My house has really changed things for me. And so i got on the peleton bandwagon kind towards the beginning of quarantine and it just blew my mind like everybody had always about how great they are and i believed it but i guess i didn't believe it enough to get it and then i got it and it is so worth. I can't even explain it to you. So there's a million different things. Obviously there primarily known for the cycling classes which are phenomenal. And such a good workout in your sweating so much and you're really getting in a powerful workout which by the way can be whatever length you want it. They have twenty minute classes. Sixty minute classes. Forty five minute classes so regardless of what you have time for you can fit it in then on top of that. There's so many other exercises and yoga and different strength workouts interest. Whatever you're trying to do peleton really does have a workout for it. And i love the fact that there's kind of like this social engagement so you can keep up with your france. Can keep you accountable. It's just a great product that i genuinely so happy that i purchase so with the pelton bike. There's nothing like working out from home. Learn more at one. Peleton dot com new members can try pellets classes. Free for thirty days at one. Peleton dot com slash terms apply. That's owen ep. L. o. t. o. N. dot com in other news. Britney spears is engaged after five years of dating sam. He is twenty-seven she's thirty nine. They first met in two thousand sixteen on her music video for slumber party and obviously huge deal in general in terms of us. We posted this after octavia spencer commented. Make him sign a pre-nup. He then responded to the comment with the hundred emoji and he made a story that said thank you everyone. Who's concerned about the pre-nup of course we're getting an ironclad. Preemptive protect my jeep shoe collection case. She dumps me one day. I thought that was funny. Yeah i thought it was funny too. I mean what do you think. I can't get rid of this guy so it's impossible to say but she seem so happy and she's felt like this engagement was very long in the making she said it. She posted a picture of him and said like took him long enough. Or something like that. Or it's way overdue. So i'm just happy for i think after the year she's had over the past couple of years she's all you could ever want is for britney to be happy and this makes her happy and all everything about her is protected. And there's no sense of worry there than i'm completely on board with this right exactly. I think that's the biggest question everybody has and also designed the rain with forever diamonds and apparently honoring the engagement by naming this particular setting the brittany. Which in theory is like a very special thing. I would hope that it's not some sort of like a brand deal. Not because there's anything wrong with that it would just feel like britney spears doesn't need to be engaged for deal that's like some bachelor shit. Yeah of course. Although i will say if you're gonna affir- gonna to say that potentially it was part of quota brandy or he got some sort of a deal on the ring in order to make it a brittany you could potentially make the argument of like. He obviously is the one of the relationship that doesn't have as much money if he wants to give her a ring that he felt that she deserved. He was going to figure out a way to do that. I'm just. I'm just saying on the flip side of that. No and i appreciate the flipside argument. And you're right. I like i logically understand it. It's like you wanna get her something super special and if this is the way to do it like i get it or not trying to knock it it. Just it will take me a moment around my head around potential. Britney spears brand. You'll engagement if that's the case i don't know if it is right and i completely agree with you. The one thing we want to mention about the vm. As is megan fox. And courtney introducing machine gun kelly. And travis as their future baby daddies this whole foursome situation. An i use the word force them with no sexual implication although do without what you will after the photos that they posted like. It's just a lot to handle. And i know a lot of people even those that like them are really turned off by it because they find. It's you have crossed the line in. I'll just be like a little grotesque in super vulgar and if that's your opinion i fully respect it. I guess i have more of like the nikki. Glaser approach in that comment that she left like. Isn't this what we want. Don't we just want a lot of entertainment and fun and for me. It's like i view this as full-blown entertainment and that's i just celebrate it. Also there nothing but hot to me. I don't think we've ever had this sort of for some of friendship. And dating in hollywood that i can off the top my head like obviously you've had friends dated and they become like a group like this extent to where they're taking pictures making out together and they do all these things together and they introduced them as like our boys saying our future baby daddies. There's this sense of extreme camaraderie between megan fox courtney. Because they're just so in love and so proud of the people are dating and vice versa. It's just i don't know to me. It's really really crazy to see unfold before our eyes. And i'm nothing but on board with every single element of it no julie that's my stance to just like. I think that we will get a really good read on this. Because obviously people say they're pretty much unfiltered thoughts and rdm's and when we posted travis's photo of them like all making in the bathroom that photo shoot. The overwhelming response was people. Saying like this gross. There was people that liked it but the overwhelming response. I know you can say yeah but the people that are like trolls kind of scream the loudest they weren't necessarily trolls. It was just people that follow us. Giving their honest opinion which again is totally valid. It just i so don't view it like that to me. It's i don't know. I'm just obsessed with it. I think everyone's a little for my likings union. That's what it is i. Yeah it takes a lot more than like an open tongue kissed to gross me out especially with them. They're just both of them as a couple or so sexually charged and they just everything they do shows. That and i don't think there's anything wrong with that. I mean megan boxes red carpet interview where she standing with machine gun kelly. And she's like naked tonight. I said whatever you want. Daddy whatever daddy says like are you kidding. When do we ever get that right. That's unheard of for a couple of weather. Not you are into that type of like dynamic powerplay stuff even if you're not into it at all you can at least appreciate the kind of transparency. 'cause yeah is it a little bit performance for shock value. Absolutely however i think that's the exact conversation that went down when she was with her stylist. Absolutely it's just it's so good to me. it's so. I don't wanna say unprecedented. Because i know we've had extremely sexual couples in hollywood before we've had engine jolie and billy bob thornton we've had people who have just expressed that extreme sexuality in there are the things they do. There's just something about them. In this era that is it's just crazy to watch unfold. That's all and another thing that i really liked which is off topic from the sexual it all just in terms of coordination megan's friendship and kind of them as a for some. I think a lot of the times with the kardashians. Something that happens is when they have friends no matter what they are just automatically integrated into the family. Like you know g g haley five all of their friends kind of become family. It's a really beautiful thing to see. But i think that's really special for courtney in this case is like this is her thing. This is not her thing to be shared with anybody else. This is lending that she gets to do on her own separate apart from the family. I think she's been looking for that for really long time so to see her. Be able to have that. Not only with travis but with machine gun kelly and megan fox to feel special to me and it feels like something. She has very much been seeking out in a way that maybe she didn't realize yes. I feel as though this whole travelling. I'm not giving travis a credit at all but this whole relationship and what. That has sparked like the resurgence of courtney kardashian as as somebody that is not just now seeing kim shadow not that she has been for a long time now but it just feels different it. I'm sorry it just feels fucking different. Yeah completely like typically she probably would have been presenting at the vm. As with a sister right but now no now. It's obvious that the goal would be her and megan because it just makes sense for their partners like that shift itself is a big deal. I think i think so too. And i think there has been something with courtney where a not that. I not that i think the family holds her back. But i think that especially when it comes to kim kendall and kylie they're such powerhouses especially as you've seen with cal. Those are the people that get invited. Chris gets invited. Khloe cornea aren't getting that invitation. And i think that for according to try and make ways and be able to stand out on her own through peuche and through something other than the association with scott and the associated with the family is something that she has really struggled with. I think the reason she's been so able to come into her own in. Have such an extreme amount of confidence when she steps out and look so amazing in glowing in sexual is because she's finally found a path that is just for her fight and like how is that like that. Yes a hundred percent. That is what she deserves and you know. i know. there's a lot of conversation about her. Like i saw somebody messages. Are you gonna talk about courtney. Changing hers style entire personality to fit her boyfriend. I don't think that's the case. I don't think she's changing her entire personality. I think her style has definitely changed a little in his far more similar to that of his. But i don't view that as a negative at all. I think that maybe that was always in. He's bringing it out or maybe she wants to experiment because she wants to see if she could into something that is so cemented as part of his identity. Like who knows. I don't think that's her. You know Molding to his likings. I think that you can tell by her happiness. Nothing that she's doing is for lack of wanting in herself. And sometimes that just happens. It's very similar to you. Know a lot of people that we see brad pitt changed his look with every single person that he dated let coordinated with travis. Nine exactly exactly anything else. You want to mention about anything. i think. that's it. But i love this episode. I just had so much fun. These are the topics that i could only dream. I have to tell you. I know i just wanted to say that i was at the nyc. Still rising after twenty years Nine eleven comedy benefit on sunday it was at the garden and we were sitting like literally road directly behind peeves grandparents and it was put on by him john stewart and at the end. Obviously you know. They were celebrating. Pete's dad and john stewart and dave chapelle were just really making these beautiful kind of it was just a beautiful tribute to his father and obviously to how proud he would have been of and to literally be sitting next to his grandparents and watch them beaming. who was. The person didn't even need to be famous just to know that that was their grandparents. It was one of the most special things i have witnessed. That is so so special. I'm so happy. Were there to witness that off. Truly they were like and it was his dad's parents. That's really unbelievable. It was really special. You know his his grandma was the one in king of san island. Yeah of course i know. Yeah so that was him. it was just. it was very heartwarming. I wished obviously there were no phones. That i would have taken training but i do wish i could have captured that because it would have. It was the kind of thing that like totally would have gone viral if you just saw the smile with which this man had an end. The grandma's well well anything else. You wanna say that's it okay but we love you guys so much. Thank you for listening. And we'll be back later this week for kurt. Actions and bravo ch- solvency.

Ep 276 | The Problem Warping Our Democracy

"Happy monday. Welcome to the news. And why it matters. I am Sara Gonzalez joined by a bunch of testosterone here at the table. Today. Stew at the top story for you. Astral point. There are four hundred and eleven people I think now running for president and the Democratic Party. We're going to do this thing called power rankings where we've got a nice little formula that figures out who is the least likely to win the nomination who's the most likely we're gonna countdown all four hundred eleven that's gonna be our special six hour episode of the white matter. I didn't find up for that. You'll love it. It's going to it's going to be fantastic. Andrew something is warping democracy. And I'm going to reveal it come up with a cure. Wow. All right kidding. I'm going to talk about something. I am all too familiar with working at this network being falsely accused. But whatever thank you. Let's get into. I think our sponsor radius own so summer is coming up. And usually that's when we do things like go to beaches, half clothed and go to the pool Jaffe, I mean, that's well Jeffey any clothes, and he goes to the, but I'm talking about the rest of us sucker soup because I went to college. Point in the Senate. If you if you're someone who is trying to get some extra weight off look for summer, and you just can't figure out how to do. It tribe is own is the good molecule in all of that helps Mr. metabolism reduce your appetite. I use it it works beautifully for me. I would know also let me just point out. 'cause being the as Glenn once dubbed meaty former fat chick here at the blaze. I I know, but it really stuck. Good. So that was be I know how hard it is to lose weight maintain the weight loss. And you know, I know what works, and what doesn't I'm telling you. He's on works. Go to our Z O N dot com. Enter promo code the blaze. You can get thirty percent off of a three months supply right now that will get you into summer, and you can feel good, and you can look good on the beach or by the pool or wherever with radio at rezone dot com. Stu power rankings. Yes. So we just like we have to do all four hundred. Yeah. Oh, definitely we give these people are do the running for president. They could be leading the free. We've got twenty candidates in the race. Now, we do this just a quick outline before we get into this. There's a we have a formula that we've kind of worked on for the past few months takes about thirty or thirty one categories of stuff like polling, and fundraising and organizational stuff and all sorts of different measures of how the campaign is doing. You know, how many fundraisers how many endorsements all the stuff that could you know, kind of formulates a who could you know, who could be winning this nomination. And then we plug it into a little system spits out a score zero to one hundred and then we bring it to you. So twenty candidates we start with number twenty is Wayne mess him. Now, you might not know who Wayne mess him is. He's the mayor of Miramar Florida, obviously, we all knew that proper or one of the surrounding satellites I wouldn't want to commit to Miramar Kappa. Metro. Yes. He's got a score thirteen point four on a scale of one to one hundred. He does not look like he's going to be your next president. But he is running and there's all these crazy candidates. There's a bunch of them out there. These are like actual people who are holding office that we've included in here or someone series of campaign. Number nineteen is Marianne Williamson. Now, she is kind of a. Guru of idea. Age guru. I would say a real picture of her Doron if. What's that? What's that name? That's going around on the internet. Would like the scary girl who's like freaking everybody Momo or whatever. Related. The mother is moment. I do have to work on the cartoons. And there I guess they had rights to the kinda weird whatever I don't really anyway. So she's at seventeen point one she wants to give at least one hundred billion dollars reparations. So case if you think she said anything less than one hundred billion insult or just great great. She's very good spending your money. So you might like are also happened to find my Email. I'm getting really not actually you are because you because you have a little bit a little bit serious got a little bit. This new age thing going on. And that is who she is. She's actually was Oprah's and a lot of famous people Kardashians. And she's kind of like their new age guru and she's run for office one other time, and it's interesting because her entire chance here if she had one was to be like Kim Kardashian like schilling. Like, she's the new fire festival. She you need to be at that level. And they tried it last in congress. She still finished fourth. So I don't know how she's going to get to the presidency. But like, you know, if Oprah gonna come out and say, you know, what my new age. Who is running for president like that could change her in an instant change her fortunes here, she may be competitive. So Sarah's onboard we know who Sarah number eighteen let's see, John Delaney. Now, John lady is actually that is a real picture. He's running for for president as well. He's been running since approx July twenty seventeen is when he announced so long time. He's had quite the runway. Here he missed on seniority. Thank you. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't realize so putting finished fifth in fundraising, which is pretty impressive except that ninety seven percent of the money came from his own Bank account. So that is a little bit John John Laney's committed. John lady has one major supporter in his name is John is he Lincoln Chafee of of twenty twenty. I heard his metric position. Yeah. But he actually I would say Delaney. If democrat had to be elected, he might be when we would actually be more friendly to I know our friend enter heating here. Let's talk John Hickenlooper. But I think as you look at Delaney as a as possible, he's a guy who's actually gets Medicare for all spoken out a spoken about the benefits of capitalism. Again, he's way too liberal sees like a math democrat. I like them math democrat wish they were more. There's not too many these this is white Laney is in eighteenth place, and he's been running forever. So is the problem seventeen Eric well, well, running a big like anti-gun campaign. He's on CNN MSNBC all the time saying whatever outlandish left wing thing he can say to get immediate cycle. This is really just a play about, you know, his this profile. This is appropriate book sale. Yeah. Exactly. And he wants to be on. He wants to be a guest on ritual motto every other day. So that's what he's. Trying to do. He's got a score of twenty point two out of one hundred sixteenth is Seth Moulton you're kind of in the same category. Here. Seth was a veteran. So he's done more with his life than I will ever do with mine. However, he has very little chance to win. He's actually telling this antidote on campaign Dory's, like look, I I I was asking getting questions from the audience. And I said, look, I'll take any tough question. I'm guy who will take tough questions as part of my job. I mean, anything really just silence for the crowd. And then finally someone spoke up in the back and said who are you? That is an addict, I'm not making it up about. It's what he's telling the campaign trail right now that beat see who wasn't Jila Brandt. Who was like I'm just trying to get some rant. Yes. Yes. The richly found. That was great was he doing a timeshare on stage with other? Yes. He was he had some multiple marketing opportunities to an event. And not know why don't we Gladys that same question? And I think the answer do it is like when you're in New Hampshire or Iowa this time of year every time you go out to breakfast. There's another candidate like it just you can't avoid these people. If you're in these certain areas, where people go so I think that's kind of what happens awful 'cause I don't wanna see them when I want him interested in voting Republican, you know, you're voting for Trump or something, and you're just sitting in there like Seth Mouton's up there running his mouth about whatever. I wanna eat my eggs like, that's it. Okay. Tim Ryan is another one of these congressmen fifteenth places go twenty one point six he's trying to run moderate again. And you see that we hitting all these supposed moderates down here. The bottom is because the Democrats don't want them. They are not interested at all in what they're pitching at this point fourteen Tulsi Gabbard, I feel like still there's a case a little bit for Tulsi Gabbard, maybe as VP candidate. She's she see actually kind of interviews as a foreign PA. Ac- Wong, and she's very very non interventionist. I would say I like her foreign policy. I hope she does well in the primaries because I'd like her to get that that anti interventionist message out there and make that part of the election. And you know, she's actually a relatively serious candidate. She's had I have a weird past. And she's kind of an interesting person to say, the least you think that, you know, she's telegenic you think maybe she's going to make a little bit of noise. So far it hasn't happened. I do I feel like she's gonna get one of those little bumps at some point and maybe get into the high single digits for a little bit. If she she has too much baggage. I think for VP which is kind of one of her problems. I think she's a little bit. She's she's a decent amount of you pointed out of the mainstream for the Democrats as well as Republicans. So it's weird fit for VP. But kind of interesting candidate, I think Andrew Yang also in the same category again Yang if you've listened if you watched Ben Shapiro interview. You'll get two things one you'll say, wow. This guy actually showed up to an interview with Ben Shapiro Shapiro's, asking them deep policy questions, and he knows the answers to them. I don't like his answers a lot of the stuff, but it's least impressive. They showed up the other. Is in that interview. It shows weakness as democratic candidate in that. There's no chance that people are going to accept these policies. They're way too sane at times. Like, this is not what the Democrats want right now out of a primary guy, especially someone. They don't know. I mean, Joe Biden could come up with some of these policies, and maybe they go along with it. But like Andrew Young you you're getting over a big hump. The his main thing has been this universal basic income. But when you look at the details of it, it's not the it's the fever dream of the left. It is version where you know, it's more like it's more like the libertarian kind of version of it, which I still don't prefer. It's not my favorite thing that libertarians have ever proposed to compare to big lab thing nine different agencies these agencies. Can you imagine the democratic primary audience being like, you know, what? Yeah. Let's we'll absolutely get rid of twelve agencies for one thousand dollars a month to everyone like it's just not happening. There's no way that's going to catch on. But of course, I've said that before he's very clever though about miniature he's probably gonna get into the debates. He's he's he's looking at all of those different rules and regular. Nations and things you might get far in the process. I would say likable too. I I really liked it. After the interview, even though I wouldn't agree with them much. Jay Inslee, governor of really parolee at twelve I'm gonna go faster. Jay Inslee, thirty point four governor of wash it running a one issue climate change campaign, basically that he's like Lindsey Graham two thousand sixteen right? What he was doing it on foreign policy Ensley just say, hey climate climate climate. He blamed Donald Trump for the floods in Iowa. Lest we click. This is what he's doing. So I again, I don't expect much John Hickenlooper. I give the player card over to enter Heaton, who's a huge Hickenlooper guy. Who I I'm kind of I'm on a spectrum of like Kato to Brookings kind of like the stodgy moderate technocrat guys and east strikes me as being a pro business democrat who's like he's willing to go into these various things, but he's not getting into the kind of screechy progressive. Extremely so I like him. Yeah. I mean, he's he brewer in this field. In this field or in the Soviet Union. He would be a moderate, I don't know outside of those two things where he'd be a moderate. But he is certainly the left. I think of of every Republican candidate for the most part. But you know, he's he is teased to the right of the field here, which is interesting because again, another moderate, I'm sticking down here at eleven twelve thirteen. These people are all down at the bottom res moderate at this point. Well, by where the depends if what you think about ten Julian Castro. I mean, it just doesn't seem to be happening for Castro. Does he does have a little bit of sort of Salish want support? So maybe something catch on. But it's not happening. So far same thing with Chile brand number nine. She's got a score thirty eight point one h not work, and she can she's a pulse where she's not even showing up. She's a sitting US Senator from the same state the last presidential candidate came from. She she's in the news all the time. But people hate the fact, I mean, the seriously rose really hurting her campaign is people hate the fact that she called for Al Franken to resign activists with. In the party or pissed off that she she applied the metoo standards to their person. And they're saying you shouldn't have done that you shouldn't call for that. He could made it through still hot, and they're pissed over that again, like take take a step back. If this thing is real which a lot with a lot of these Democrats. It isn't some some it is. But if it's real this is a woman who told her truth with photographic evidence about a powerful man taking advantage of her in a time of owner ability, and the Democrats themselves the activists are rejecting the woman who called her out. It's really unfair Jila grant from that. If you look at it from that perspective, but it is just she's not catching on eight cloture again club, which I would say you could say is in the moderate wing as well as sheep. She's not a blue dog issue. She's she loved borderline. Now, we talked to Mike Lee you had amount as well. I know we talked to Mike the whole field who would respect the the constitution the most of the Democrats. And he said cloture? So I mean, you of look at her as he likes working with her. She's been she's got a she's taking a couple of moderate stances, and she has great electoral history. She's blown away the competition. Minnesota in a state that Trump almost one number seven Elizabeth Warren forty five point three out of a hundred again, she's pandering about trying to show how game of thrones Preuss, we need powerful women. She's fringe worthy. Every step. It's unbelievable. How good she is. At every time. She does something. She just makes me cringe. Number six is Cory Booker fifty four point nine a lot of people trying to sell Booker as the positive candidate out of the Democrats. I don't know that I've seen all that much about that. But they're saying it's not working in the Democrats don't want whatever Cory Booker is doing is not working in the shoving people out of the way to get on camera. Yes. Thank you most dangerous place. Very camera. Gordon? Number five. Robert francis. Rourke's at a sixty one of his strengths. He's still mid range in the polling, even though he said this big fall off he still very good as far as fundraising. So he has some benefits there. But it really feels like the shine has gone out of bed except for her sweating that's still there. But I mean, generally speaking the shine has gone off the candidacy, and he's going to have to if he's spending this time being frugal and trying to figure out what he believes in life. Maybe that's a good thing. Because I doesn't seem to have a lot of policies, but he's something's going to happen. For him to reignite this thing because it really does seem like it's fall off largely gone to our number four who's at sixty two point nine out of one hundred Pete Buddha. Judge who is shockingly never would have guessed. This guy would have been able to get the top forward any point in this campaign. He's been better right now, he is beating Beddoe he is he is beating almost everybody. Really? Except the very top tier? He's throwing very well in pulling. He's pulling well, and I always will nationally his fundraising is shockingly good. This is a guy from the mayor mayor of south bend seven million dollars. I mean. The only did nine everyone knows him for his using again, the background behind Buddha. Judge Obama was was talking about him very early. A lot of people who are in his camp are seeing him as the future of the party a big a big step. He is the opposite of Trump when it comes to, you know, performance and presentation, and they think they can make something out of this guy. Plus, there's just not along paper trail, there's just not a lot to criticize as you've seen. So far Democrats have really said anything bad about him yet that is gonna change. But it hasn't so far number three comma Harris she was number one last week. She's at sixty eight point six out of one hundred is comma, Harris, fading fast or is. She is she just planning to smart. She's got a lot of fundraising twice as many big donors as from the Clinton and Obama campaigns as any other candidate twice as many. It's a big number. She seems to be the one they're coalescing around. But, you know, she's still moderate and polls and has not shown a lot of strength. Number two. Bernie. Anders. He was our number two last week as well sixty nine point two people one thing about Bernie centers is the fundraising and he doesn't have to drop out of these races. Because he's got so many. He's six hundred thousand individuals owners, which is about four or five times as many as any other candidate. So he is he's got money to burn he's going to perform well, and he's going to at least take this Super Tuesday. And this is a guy who show he does not want to drop out of this race at any reason. And of course, number one I debut on the polls at seventy eight point eight nine points ahead of anybody else. So he actually turned out really well in this model is Joseph Robin, Biden junior. Yes, that's his name, Robin. It's never heard one point with me. Don't have four names. Joseph Robin, Biden junior kind of he's pulling still leads everybody. And you know, you look at he his fundraising was bigger than anybody else on day one, which some people surprised about you think the energy of Sanders are a bed Omai of being that Sanders was number one in total fundraising Biden, probably will beat him this quarter relatively handily. He's in a good position. Can Joe Biden screw it up. Absolutely. But he starts off with with a nice big. Joe Joe Biden's family? Chris should be a man and a necktie stepping on a rake. His capacity to screw this up. I think is very high. He's not good at running for president is gonna town today times or twelve times or fifteen times and he's one zero. All right back in a minute. Interesting to me four out of the five top candidates are white. Not sure if you guys know this, but you can actually own your home and put in a bunch of equity into it. And then someone can show up at your door. And be like, hey, we just bought your house and get your furniture out of here. And it's all because of a home title fraud. The FBI actually said that it's one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. And I didn't even hear about it. I had no idea that this was something that could take place until we started talking with home title ox situations. Like theft was several years ago where you heard about who's gonna take my stupid identity. I don't even know what my own yet any. But reality is she said that a I guess, but we know. Okay. But yeah. With home title. It's the same thing. It's kind of bubbling under right now. People don't know about it. But it's exploding when it comes to numbers, and I know called an epidemic in New York right now. So it's one of those things that if you get out in front of it you protect yourself. Now, you're never going to have to worry about it home. A lock is right there at the gates of where these titles are held. So you just have to set up with home in get get rid of the word horror story, the horror stories that can't be me. And then it is something that, you know, insurance companies don't protect against it identity have program. Don't protect against it. Home. Tidal lock is the place to go. You can go to home title dot com. Get a hundred dollar search for free when you sign up. So you can find out if you've already been a victim again, you wouldn't know it unless you go to home title, go there. Now get that hundred dollar search for free injury. You said that you have the solution to all of our world's problems. I can't wait to all of them some to some of them because there's something that's warping democracy right now. And I think it's worth investigating thing. It's by the way Twitter is talking about. So is a preface to this. We're often told that there's two types of people in politics, there's conservatives, and there's progressives. That's not true. The two types of people people that type in all caps on Twitter and all of us putting up with you. Those are the two types of people in American politics. I am firmly on the lower case side of this. And if we backed up really far back, we went back to like, the Greek city states volume was important like in Sparta, they made decisions by just people would Bank shields and scream, and whatever was loudest was considered. Best thing. And I think that's probably a really good solution. If you've got three hundred naked Greek people to figure out how to run a country when we've got what are we have to up to three hundred thirty million in America a lot right? Twitter's really good at augmenting volume from super ideological people. But it's not emblematic of the actual people voting in the United States in the actual people in the United States. Now, I I am an opinionated person. I I'm an ideologue I like everyone in our circle, that's meteoroid politics. Probably has very clearly delineated ideas of what we want. We don't want. We're actually kind of a rarity in that regard. Most of the American public doesn't really think like that most American publics little bit more squishy doesn't have these firm constellations there. But more the point even if you're you're looking at Twitter is just more active people. It's not it's not indicative of say what like a congressman's district looks like because if your congressman and you're looking at just your Twitter feed, you're seeing mostly angry people, and people that are very very very firmly opinionated, you're not necessarily saying like the pancake breakfast or things like that. With with Democrats. Specifically Twitter tends to be more liberal more educated wealthier whiter in terms of the Democrats or the progressives that are commenting. So when you're looking when you're on Twitter, and you're like, oh my gosh. It's so progressive it's not actually indicative of the whole broad spectrum of of people that are part of the progressive movement. When it comes to conservatives tends to be people that are urban and are more, ideologically bent. So my point is if you're in politics, and you're looking at Twitter, this is a poor way to try and aspertain what your constituents are actually thinking about. Because what you're doing? Is you sing the angry people using allowed people? I would rather congressman go hang out at the, you know, the local pancake breakfast, the elks lodge, whatever talked to people from our vantage point as American citizens. What I would guess what I'm doing this year when I recommend you do too is every time you do political tweet pledge dollar some charity, I'm gonna do that at the end of the year. I'm going to count. How many political tweets have done? And I'm going to donate money. All did that we fix America enough money for that. Too many political tweets, I would be broke. I'm sorry. I can't I limited. The once I tweet I immediately sign out and close the I don't even have the phone anymore. But you just light the match away. I don't guess don't care. I don't care what anybody says no fence if you're tweeting to me, I just don't really read them because it's not. It's not it's not real life. Get to your point. I think Andrew two point two percent of American dolts are responsible for eighty percent of tweets. I mean, that's how crazy it is two point two percent. This is a bunch of people who really like Twitter, and like look order has some cool things about it. There's parts that really like. But I mean it the issue here. I think almost more than the actual use of Twitter is the way to media uses this as a proxy for journalism. I mean like instead of getting a comment from someone they say, oh, they tweeted this. Therefore, that's the comment. I'm gonna put in the story, and then it gets magnified to the entire country Twitter is used as essentially the heartbeat of America. When it really isn't. Well, I mean, we've used we've thought about this with Email for years, right? I mean with the the activists of fines against and then they have ten people Email thousands of emails to accompany in the company feels like all these people care about it. So they have to act that's Twitter. Now bunch of people tweeted something and now the companies feel like they have to act because they've got all these people know, it's really not all these people that use your product that are complaining, it's only this little group over here. Also, it add you said. Two point two percent of people responsible for eighty percent of the tweets. I feel like if you looked into that. And you saw maybe probably Donald Trump would be responsible for like sixty. Yeah. And then the rest of us are only responsible for this is not as bad you're saying. Okay. Back in a minute, sixty coupling. Of his probably stocked investment. Do you sad that there's a big socialism episode coming up for your is? It's Wednesday night. Mayday? Netflix has a documentary coming out about AFC on may first which is odds windy release. I wonder why they did it. I can't even think of a reason why you do that strange. But you know, what that's what the rest of the world wants you to see. They wanna see this flowery presentation of socialism. This is going to push back on this not only going to tell you the real results socialism. But one of the plan of one particular country in Europe that that switch to just a few years through the rules wasn't to take over wasn't violent just going through the rules. How what was that blueprint liked? And is it being applied here today? Spoiler alert. Yes. So see how that works. It's sits really fascinating. Once I gotta tell you AFC is your flowery presentation of socialism. I. Your. Up next enjoy bonus overtime content from the news in wide matters.

All right, Jeffey stew with the blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, final guy. I did my best to for the audience to filibusters long as possible to get Jeffey talk at of the main show. You're welcome. For those people wanna talk about it was being falsely accused I'm well aware of having here at this network. Ashley poster in Ohio in the parking lot of target with two kids. Police come up say, hey, aren't you Ashley false ter-? And they arrester. What are you arresting me for? Oh, you're guilty of trafficking heroin, and we're going to take your kids to but. No, that's not me. That's not me. So you're the same person. Here's the paper. See, no. That's the wrong address. That's not me. Yes. It is off. She goes hand cover in front of her kids. One little kid is still like eight weeks old little baby doesn't matter. They don't care. They take them away. They call CPS. I take her away. She's in jail for seven days county jail. Two different jails. She keeps asking what's going on. What am I here for that? Somebody else they're coming to get you. They finally take her to another kind of jail. What am I here? I don't know that somebody else are coming to get you. Finally, the police chief interviews her. You know, why? It is another actually foster. Thanks for your time. Gosh, darn it darn it. Thanks for your time. And by the way, I your car still at the target parking lot. I guess the best thing the whole deals. They didn't tell her car. Flat tire and the parking lot of tartar and CPS still at our kids. And they're coming to interview her to see if she's worthy of getting kids back shut out, by the way that she didn't show up for work for those seven days. She lost her job. So I hope I hope to Ashely owns this county and town in Ohio, and I know mistakes happen. I get it mistakes. Yep. No question. And and I feel bad. And and look she had the same name Ashley foster all actually was spelled different. I think and it was different address though. I mean, I but for for seven days spelled wrong as a completely unacceptable. The address people have different addresses. They don't typically change their name legally to something that sounds like. I mean, that's what I'm just saying that very easily. Yeah. For seven days, and then to get a I mean, wouldn't even even hey will take you to CPS and say we falsely arrest or give her kids back. There's no investigation these to happen here. Oh, by the way. I know you lost your job. At least maybe goat with her and say, you know, their way to give her a job back. Thanks for your time. May happen. Like, I would be surprised if the update on the story tomorrow as she got her job back, and and maybe this stuff gets fasttrack. But that's still it's unacceptable time here. They're week is way to log James is spelled differently. Can they pinpoint the police officer that dropped the ball on this one? Because I feel like there was a warrant. There was a word for actually foster, right? So the only difference like I said pretty sure that the first name was spelled different still Ashley foster was that if she's saying that's not even the right address is just as just another criminal denying. It's you. We'll say that they probably do hear that from seventy five percent of the criminals. That's not me got the wrong guy. Like, I mean, that's probably pretty common. That is. Maybe maybe you could understand a few hours of that. Like, maybe you could understand a few hours of trying to figure. Oh, okay. This is not the right person a week is completely unacceptable. Look, I know we hear it all the time. And and every time I get arrested I denied tonight. And I that's what I've been used to card. Say good morning. You say no, I didn't. Yeah. It's very strange. But you're in a parking lot of target. She's got two kids. They may be just a common sense of. Let's look into it a little bit before we holler off the weight. Just really wanna be aggressive. Maybe follower. Make sure you don't let her out of your sight. Right. Like, I mean, if you really are even that is like borderline even make a mistake, you put her in the back of a car, you make a couple of phone calls, and you realize it's the wrong person, let her back out, and you know, if she probably filed this giant lawsuit, and it actually on the polices side. Probably if it was a minor mistake and took a couple of hours out of time. It is true. These absolutely but come on a week that's eighteen month. Or would you say eighteen months? The kids are probably gonna remember that. Oh, yeah. Oh. Resilient through it. And I mean, it also brings up the the conversation that I feel like I get a lot of pushback from very staunch conservatives that you know, whatever the police tell you to do you should do it. Police police. The thority, and you need to know the card anymore in my wallet. But I don't have my wallet legitimately a step-by-step thing of what to say, and what not to say when you're arrested, and I would be the same way because I am very deferential to police officers. Most of these cases, I believe them. Honestly like, I can see their side. And almost all these things, I'm definitely you know, pro-police, and maybe sometimes too much. So I can't admit it. But it does there's no value in in your life. It doesn't add value in your life to tell them things that that you don't have to tell them. It. Never does your any good. There's never a good outcome. And let us know. Nice doing labyrinth. Because again, like, you don't know what what they're trying to get you on. You don't know if they're trying to get someone else near you. You don't know what the deal is? And you know, there's no need to to to volunteer information. Because a lot of times it can be used against you. And if you say something that's wrong. They can later on as we've seen in so many times in politics. They can just they can make your crime. Just you misstating something, you know, you're trying to hide something. I know there was no underlying crime. But we got we got John obstruction. Crazy, so many so many television shows, you know, make it seem like when the police come to your door. And you say you don't have a warrant. No. And they make the TV shows make the the homeowner look like the bad guys because the cops are good. You know, the police officers in the show. Those guys are good. They just want to catch the bad guy or they'll pull out like you forget a little thing called the Patriot Act. How that works. Oh terrorists. I can come in actually to you know, the police I think rightfully so should get more respect than they do in most situations, particularly when it's coming to arrests and things like this like I think a lot of times people get pissed off under Stanley times. But like you have to handle his interactions better. And I think it's important teacher kids to make sure that they they always act with respect because I mean officers deserve that. But if you want to improve relationships with the public doing away with things like taking people's property without even charges would be a nice step. You know, what I mean, these these these are basic functions that should not be occurring when it comes to civil asset forfeiture and such like that so ridiculously over the line. You can understand why people are hesitant the only good thing to come out of this is that they didn't tell her car right at the target lot. And said she didn't have to go and pay the impound lot for car. That's really kind of them. I thought so probably because I had a flat tire had to that that when when someone has a tremendous amount of power, there is also an attendant amount of responsibility. So when they're. When there is a screw up Spiderman. Yes, exactly if there's a screw there should be some sort of there should be some sort of consequence to it. And we're specifically when there are various cops. And I think the majority of cops are good and doing their best. But when there isn't a Cobb if there's some kind of regulation, shielding them. That's not okay, they need to be they need to be removed, Nick wages and given really swift nasty Justice. All right. So I heard that Stu you have a game of thrones. That's. Do both of you watch game of thrones. Yes, I don't. Well. You should listen to talking thrones on my podcast than I do which I was convinced about toilets. I thought for sure. You're doing a podcast about toilet. Not that that isn't possible. This one is after the season, though, you got the domain. I think I know. So this is an experiment on if you heard this Andrew, but it's experiment. Basically, I have joined game of thrones with absolutely no knowledge. Never watched an episode started with season eight episode one any of the characters I don't understand any of the lines or references. It is just how good his. Isn't that good? 'cause I don't even have a glimpse of that. I there was a, you know, we won't get into any spoilers. But there was a big battle or you can show. No, no, no. Show aired last night. You know what I mean? That's not enough time. A month. In my head. I'm thinking details. You should admit. I'm sure I'm sure you're going to find you Glenn did go through a checklist of things that I could say he's like, are you can't say this this or that? So I those there's a few things at the end that obviously that I guess we're important, although I can't tell you why I don't know why. 'cause I don't know who these people are I fascinated to see it's interesting to see people's reaction to it. Because you know shows that are huge like gave thrones is are not as huge as they used to be. It's not mash, right? Like, it's not like sixty percent of the population of watching. These shows is eighteen. Surprised that the numbers were as low as they pay TV though. I know right. Still still the number one show, certainly when it comes Shefi's moms HBO account. Yes. I don't have that. It's interesting reaction because people who don't watch it. You know, it's just funny that I'm being Glenn's making me do this and I'm trying to get through. And I really it's really hard to piece together because I don't know their names. They don't say their names to each other. Why would they everyone knows who they are on the show except for me because I don't know any of the background. But the people who watch the show really appreciate it. Because it really makes me look like an idiot. I will say though, it's it's an interesting experiment jumping in like this because these shows are made for binging, right? And so people I don't even think they're planning anymore. There is no attempt to bring me up to speed no attempt. They're not even trying to give me like. You are a background. I don't know. How many Pete names, I know on the show too? And the glint only one of them was wrong. We'll tell you which one. No more than that. Yes. They do. They do. Jon snow is one of them. Yes. And then I think his name was Carr ES or something like, no, it's not as name. It's it's not Zacarias. I don't know who he was. But I won't say anything about what happened. But I thought he was a person, and he apparently was not okay. I know like angry elf is on the show. And I was revealed that season eight episodes three I thought this is a big revelation Glenn didn't seem so impressed that angry elf was married to the redhead at some point in the past Joe, which I thought was pretty amazing because they do not look like couple at all. Like, that's incredible. Like having to get hurt in the center matchmaking was a whole different game. That we we just found out too that they were actually no longer married because some of that backstory was some people thought that they may still have been married. Really? Yeah. They did say they had four fights. And she apparently got married a bunch of times because she made a comment about effect there. But you know, so angry it was was married in which pretty cool. And then there's there's one or two other big revelations that I found in there that no one else seem to think we're big we're big revelations that I don't understand that. But I mean, it was pretty cool. You had you had the Blondy Queen lady who's like the Siegfried and ROY of dragons, and she's pretty impressive. And you know, I will say the battle scenes pretty pretty cool. It's been a lot of money time money like fifty five nights of battle shooting, man. That was like eight or nine nine hundred eighty s blockbusters worth of end of that. I will say they did cut some corners in in cost. Like, for example. Hey, let's light all the sorts on fire. And then they all go far away. Battlefield, and they all all the sorts go out again. It's a minor spoiler. I guess if you're watching it, but not my not by much, and that's just the way to not have to pay for that battle. I disagree. I think that was a great way of har- banger of the video was snuffed out. Yeah. Yeah. It was impressive. I like the is so dark though like, and I don't mean dark as far as negative. I mean, just dark. I know what happened at night. But usually when you're watching TV shows at night, you can still see occurring. This was a lot of times. There's like chaos face chaos. Face head cut off face off. Like, right. That's I can't tell what's going on. And I don't know who's dying. I don't know who the people are so sad. I know. That's what made it. So fascinating. Those that when you come back around you see who survived this battle. Yes. There's one point in mental either every big characters dying or none of them are dying which one it is. And. We can't spoil. I don't listen to talking thrones my seriously because this is agonizing not being able to spoil thing. We've got. We've got this show about some Bs which I had no idea about. Walkers are. Yeah. This is what it is. It's it's a show about Norman conquest England, truly with zombies dragons, and that's why it's such a brilliant show. Can I run through Israel have been your children? Right. Okay. So there's there's the Starks and there's a Lancasters. What's the that? You're gonna explain all the backer. I can't hear this. Okay. So there's there's two big houses stark in Lancaster, people at home and one thing about their house of York and house of Lancaster. It's it's it's it's the. I bet, you know, British history though. You're not going to be back back together. I don't know that I should have that didn't they do a series called the tutors though, then they do this. It was like rhesus less accurate game of thrones. This more accurate. It's accurate. The corners with the tutors. The dragon. We all want. The dragons represent poverty. I don't know. It's it's the liberties had Andrew Hedin on talking. Thrones yet. No, I have not. I mean, it's not really a guest right show. You could ask him. I mean, it's not really sit there quietly while you talk. That. All right. Friday's poll. What is the most important issue heading into twenty twenty? This is not surprising. Sixty nine percent of you said immigration seventeen percent, set economy, eight percents at healthcare six percents gun rights. I actually am surprised by the healthcare in the gun right's thing. I would think that those will be swapped that more people would be concerned with care immigration. I mean is interesting. I mean, it just top of the news is probably explanation for that more than anything else. Because if Bernie Sanders or comma Harris can become president your gun rights are going to be they're gonna at least try to restrict them. Gun rights in the past used to be when he because he, you know, one of the only state in America that does not have a concealed carry license. Not because they don't offer them because everyone just gets them. You don't need to get a concealed carry license is Vermont like, that's how far they are when it comes to gun rights their weight on that road. Because most people wouldn't think that you think of national you think Vermont Bernie Sanders, Ben and Jerry's like, you know, like this does that seem like that place, but they're very live for your diet as their neighbor. And it's that that's very much the attitude there Bernie back in the day was pretty good on guns, and he gets beat up in the primers about it. But he's really turned into a normal democrat. Also, I forget which outlet it was, but some mainstream media outlet, and they tweeted, it was an opinion piece, but someone from their outlet tweeted an article two story, and it was that Kamala Harris, comma, Harris owns a handgun and should prevent her that should disqualify her from becoming president Jones owns a handgun in Israel. I mean got thrown out of the party, let alone that maker president Xi also questioned letting living convicts vote. So she said we should have that conversation. But that you came back around as a former prosecutor and said, you know, we should not I don't really don't want them to I never running late can get the Andhra Heaton position on the Bernie Sanders. I'm interested to hear your opinion on I know Jeffey, of course, would say convicts vote. No matter what. But like because there's the Norway that we kind of do it now, which is you know, they get felons. Can't even after they get out that kind of next step over which I feel like is a lot of America is which is you can't vote when you're in prison. But once you're out you've paid your dues. And then you can you can vote again. Or the very centers position is like, you know, you know, Boston bomber in prison casting votes in prison. Where are you on that? You know, what I recognize that the majority of the country's probably in that you get to vote when you leave type can I think you should be able to vote while you're there, and I'm feeling like this like if you go to prison, you don't quit being an American citizen. Like, I I don't think that's on the table where we're like we're internally exiling people going. You are now stateless you have no citizenship until you leave should. I think if you're a citizen that's part of being a citizen. I don't think it's taken away from you. I also think that from a from electoral perspective, I I had viewer on the show asked me about this. He asked would do you think that that would seriously influence politics congressman be swinging by Kahn, or you know. Yeah. I don't think it'd be that that much of a thing. But I will say like if you go to like Oklahoma where where I'm from that has the highest incarceration rate in the country in a country that has the highest incarceration rate in the world. I do think you'd see some changes in that. I suspect Oklahoma probably would have legalized non violent drug offenses lot quicker. What what we did was we just blundered into kind of resolution on medical marijuana. I think you would have seen that happen faster because there were enough people that were locked in in prison for you know, because they got into meth or something. So I do think it'd be some effect. But overall, though, my main thing is I think if you're a citizen you get to vote, and that doesn't change if you're imprison I'd be what ear if you're citizen. You get to move around freely in that does right if you're citizen you get to have second amendment rights. May not actually be of the state or the county or the city that you're in prison. Well, that's that's totally. Non-citizen definitely. That if you're if you're legal immigrant. People are in prison in places where they don't. Yeah. Ballot. Like, I my whole life. I think I've mostly been like, no, you frigging NFL Vinnie and you never vote again don't minute felony. I lately I've been coming more to the inter heat inside. And actually was a little like a little part. Here's why here's why I think if you are imprisoned, right? Let's just say, for example, just take a crazy example, they make conservative commentary. They go after that. And they say like they start imprisoning people on political terms like you because you're in prison. You are the person who might be voting based on their conditions in prison. Right. You might be voting on the law. You are imprisoned on and like you should be able to to have input on whether that law should be changed. And maybe support politicians on you know, that would say, you know, what I think that that's wrong, and we should overturn that. I don't think there'd be a lot of pandering to prisons. I don't think it would make honestly much if any electoral difference at all I think would be more mostly a symbolic gesture. I'm not there. But you've got me at least thinking about it the last the last few months because you know, let's say like to this crazy world where they start throwing people in prison for their political opinions should those people. I mean, that's a great way to not have them voting. Like you come up with a way to throw the evil conservative into prison on some technicality. All of a sudden, the conservatives no longer voting and has no representation whatsoever. That's an extreme example. But I think I think even like, even if you think it's drugs, right? Like, I should be able to do these drugs. You should be able to vote for politicians who say legalize drugs, and you might not win. But at least you should be able to have input in that process.

At one of late nights favored guests, comedian John Mullany you can also head to late night on Youtube to watch these clips now. Let's get to the show. Are Our most frequent guests John. Laney did I beat. Was it Martha Stewart I. Think you just tipped ahead of Martha Stewart. Back and forth. It the ballet continue. Now, obviously, you're following the presidential campaigns. You had a great bit about trump way before years before he was pretending to run for president. Yes, he was still an odd person back. In two thousand and seven when he was just doing celebrity apprentice, and it was like Oh that's about the weirdest he'll ever be. Top that really did know but I I'm repeating myself, but what? I said back then was that to me like trump is not a rich man. Donald trump is like a hobo imagines a rich man to be. Like. Trump was walking around under an underpass, and he heard some guy like. Oh, as soon as my number comes in I'm going to put up tall buildings with name on. Fine Golden Hair. And a TV show where I gene Simmons with my children and trump with. My. On this so far well, it's in keeping with him because when. He makes a decision. He must think to himself like what would a cartoon rich person to? Run for president either US can single lick not a bit. Yeah, and we had to the incredible composer for this ally. Yes, we sing or iphones, and then just send him a singing. Yes, and what what I would do is, I would take melody that already existed, and was copy written, and then I would add my own words and I go. How about this in Eli would say well? That's already a song. and. You had to listen to me. Sing, so I have all these voice memos of we actually have a voice just to give people a sense of exactly how how dire! Dire this was for a report. Let's let's say I'm legit embarrassed. Hello ally. Mullany I'm losing my voice on tour so I was picturing it like this, and you don't own any land just the in the. Neighbors cooking cash and your other neighbor died when you. Look at that time is got, but you'd never give up your spot. Pat! Getting. I'm proud of myself. You all know this. But my grandmother and sets mom. We're in a local production in marblehead Massachusetts of a hospital benefit musical revues day with me. And it was directed by a young Tommy tune. Yeah, it was called pills, poppin and it's. Saved the hospital. It's no laughing at. But you know you've talked to your mom about it I've talked to my nanny times New England stories always sound fake. Yeah, they sound like limericks. Like a man named Tommy tune. Off.

Oh, pills, a pop it in Marblehead, Massachusetts. It's real. The thing that you think would be the most fun to host would be the rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Yes. That is the only truly fun award show. Yeah I don't know if you all watched the HBO rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Annually. No absolutely no one. It happens every year or does it. I'm not sure if it. If it didn't no one would notice, they induct about like a half dozen ungrateful. into an association, no one ever asked for in Cleveland and if I could describe it. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Think of it like a wedding. If every speech was given by the bride's ex boyfriend. Every band comes in with some old grievance, and all their speeches filled with bile from like thirty years before about like equipment, bands or something, and the Golden Globes the Oscars the Oscars had a big weird thing happened last year. That's one glitch that's on a night where each winner does not know until the moment the envelope. Then they have to go give a speech in front of ten million people that should have millions of glitches, the rock and roll hall of fame induction bands no for months that they're going to be inducted and they give a speech. They blow it as. They all get up there. They don't know how to stand. They've been standing on stage for twenty years and they're dislike side. Yeah. I guess. The GonNa have all the fame which we think is being asked. They always undercut night. and. We're like we don't want this. This was for you. I heard that someone asks you. Why Comedians Make Fun of Florida Florida I met a very nice young woman, sixteen year old girl. Came up to me after the show and she said I wanna be a comedy writer I WanNa Right SNL and I said I used to right there, and she said I know. That's why I'm talking to you about it and. She said. Why do comedians always go after Florida and I was like That's a good point. We Kinda, do she's like? Yes, you do. She said there was a Jeremy Renner sketch when he does it. SNL where he played the mayor of Tampa and when he said I'm the mayor of Tampa. Everyone laugh automatic. And I, said to her like I said well. It's not fair that we laugh at Florida I. Said Comedy Writers Are Often Lazy, and so it's like a good example of a place when you need a few. That paper towels I'd be like what he said. What are you costco, not a good job, not a good joke about. Easy! So Florida is the Costco of. UPSETTING PEOPLE Like you like it's just everything at once. You'd never make Florida on purpose. 'cause you'd never put it together. Like a dinner party. You wouldn't be like. Hey, you know. We should invite a bunch of elderly Jewish people, and some really cool gay people from south. And a bunch of conservative Cubans and a woman that looks like Bret. The hitman hard-driving a fan. And possum and an alligator and twelve serial killers, and the richest people in the world, trying not to pay taxes and at the end of the dinner party. They decide who the president is. Just wrote this years ago. Yeah, and you didn't pick it. I you're the head of writing. I was ahead of writing, but I thought I remember saying I'm like save it for when he comes back. On a wait till one of these writers improbably Hosa You're a les MIS fan as a child, so this was I should point out. The sketch called Bob stor. Yes, and it was It was to the Les Mis Soundtrack.

He's lived in the diner for forty years and the only music to accompany. That is les Mis Arab. So what we did was we wrote it by listening to the les, Miz soundtrack, and then we changed the words of the songs and we made them about being lobster. Sketch writing and that was at the table.

Bernie Sanders: Democratic front-runner?

To learn more buy tickets. Visit our website at F O E festival dot Debbie s j dot com. Twenty percent off with code podcast. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. What to do about Bernie as in Bernie Sanders, Vermont democratic Senator candidate for president as Democrats begin to consider and some fear that the candidate who can close in two thousand sixteen this time may actually be the front runner for the Democratic Party nomination. That's the increasing conversation Democrats are having behind the scenes and they're getting a little nervous. And some of the debate is breaking out into public. Well, we'll talk to you about that high on Paul zhigo of the Wall Street Journal and here to talk about the rise of Bernie with Kim strassel. However, you Kim good Paul. How are you? Very good. So Bernie Sanders is really interesting Kim. He is he's now a very close to Joe Biden as one of the top two in the in the polls. And of course, Biden is even in yet. So we don't know if Biden will run, but it's very interesting to me just to look at the underlying strength that Sanders has in this nominating process. He really has his core. Supporters from two thousand sixteen he is I think so far eclipsing any other serious challenge from the left, and I would point to Elizabeth Warren what all of her policy proposals. Does not seem to be gaining much tracks in relative to Bernie Kamala Harris doing okay, but the Senator from California, but she's she's not emerge d- yet as a serious challenger to Senator Sanders. So what you're seeing is a lot. Of Democrats beginning to thank you know, what it's not out of the question that he could be the nominee. And he got the tension on the president. I'd states this week who was no enormously irritated because and said so in a tweet when Fox News hosted a town hall was Senator Sanders where he actually did reasonably well by almost all accounts. So what do you make of this this growing tension, this growing recognition that Sanders has legs? Well, I think what you see among these Democrats is they're looking at Bernie and what they see is. Here's a guy who is running essentially outside of the traditional Democratic Party structure, right? He's he's never caucus with Democrats. He has an incredibly loyal base some of which were brought along in the his last presidential bid where he got quite a bit of name recognition. He's not intimidated by threats and outside people. And he's running on a message essentially that the establishment is out to get him. And that sounds to them a lot like a guy named Donald J Trump who managed to use all of those things to overthrow a whole bunch of other very qualified Republicans a win the nomination from rose party and become president of the United States. And they worry that this is what's happening right now within the democratic primary what is tempering enthusiasm for that. Is that they worry that the last part couldn't come to be. They're very concerned that Bernie is too far left in the end to actually win a head to head competition with Trump, and so therefore they are going down a bad path. And this is why you're hearing all of this talk about what do we do about Bernie? How do we stop this? The the there's a debate broke out this week, which is really interesting, which I think points to Senator Sanders strategy this time, which is that he sent a blistering letter to the center for American progress, which is the left wing think tank in Washington DC founded by John Podesta who is chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is now run by near a Tandon who is a very much a Clinton partisan, very liberal herself. Really, generally waited the left, but the that's associated with with Hillary Clinton, and the think progress, which is there the the media arm associated with cap as it's called is had done some critical pieces about Bernie, including the fact that he made a million dollars for a couple of years and was critical of that Sanders responded to that saying. In this letter, which somehow made it into the press that don't divide again, the party, again, you're you have a you have a responsibility not to try to undermine somebody who could be the nominee of the party and that plays to exactly the point. You made Kim which is that Sanders wants to make the to to to get people to think. Okay. The establishment is ganging up on me again and trying to deny me the the the nomination. And I think he's borrowing Sanders ah Trump strategy here, which is you use these people when they come as foils you go after them and you say see their failed. They lost the last election. You lost it with her. Hillary Clinton lost had you nominated me we would have one. And and that that I think he's not going to he's going to push back against all those kind. Of attacks. Yeah. And don't forget how aggrieved many of his voters last time around were not just the idea that the party chose the wrong person. But they believed that the deck was stacked against Bernie. And that the Democratic National Committee took a lot of steps to aid Hillary Clinton and keep Bernie from getting the nomination. And so they have doubled down in their support for him. And and again that that cap tack will I guess it was think progress near Tandon is actually distanced herself. She said, well, that's our our media sort of journalism outfit, and they're allowed obviously free press to write what they want. We think it was overly critical. But there's no question that that entire group Clinton forces are among those that are very concerned about Bernie's momentum here in particular. I think what they're concerned about as well is. I mean, they're already looking down the. Road at a convention and don't forget that Democrats do their entire primary a little bit different than Republicans. They go out the calendar is such they're going to have their four early states of primaries and caucuses and then boom right after that they're going to have Super Tuesday. And which by the time all of this is done. Forty percent of their delegates will already be distributed. They work on a proportional system. So everyone's going to get a little slice of them. And you know, they're already worried that you end up in nominating convention, and you don't have a clear runner, and it's contested. And and then there's going to be a real Throwdown, especially Bernie were denied the ballot. Again, just to elaborate on that point when you say a proportional system. This is in contrast to the way that the Republicans work in most of their primaries and caucuses, which is winner take all pretty good the prime, Chris the the winner of the primary gets all of that state's delegates whereas in the democratic primary. If you pass a certain threshold, I think it's fifteen percent you can you can get some delegates from that state. So it makes it harder for any individual candidate to run the table. And what that means is that it makes it easier for a candidate Bernie racks up. You know, thirty percent twenty five percent thirty percent of different states to stay in there and remain competitive. And particularly if nobody else breaks away to to run the to run the campaign all the way to the to the convention and remember, there's also a lot of resentment still in the Clinton ranks against Bernie Sanders, because they think he stayed in too long the in in the last time, they think he damaged her significantly by doing so I don't believe that by the way, but I think they do and and that's going to manifest itself over the coming over the coming months as well. So we're talking about Bernie Sanders and his chances for the democratic nomination and your listen. Potomac watch from the Wall Street Journal. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Welcome back on Paul zhigo with Kim strassel Kim talking about Bernie Sanders. Interesting. He is so far among the leaders of the democratic candidate pool. The only one who's been willing to to appear on Fox News. I mean, I think some of the others like John Laney, Andrew Yang would be happy to do. So. But they're not right now at the at the front of the pack. I think that's very shrewd on Bernie's part speak to that audience. They're going to be important players to win the presidency. If you if you get the nomination, and maybe even some of those voters year reaching through FOX could be voters in a in a in the some of the primaries. Oh, of course, it smart, especially if you're Bernie running the way Bernie is running in a look you. And I know he he talks about democratic socialism. He is to me extremely far out on the left. And I think with a lot of policies that were voters to truly understand what he was proposing could be a turnoff. But if you just take him at his face value, and you see him at a at a town hall like this. He's definitely got a bit of a populist stick. It's why it was always surprising to me Paul back in two thousand sixteen when you'd see these voters that would say, well, my first choice is Donald Trump. But my second choice is Bernie Sanders or vice versa. And even though their policies are almost diametrically opposed in its because both of them try to speak a little bit to the forgotten man as it were. That's very much a Bernie idea. Now, he doesn't a different way than the millionaires and the billionaires, and it's a lot about economic inequality and what he. Economic injustice, but there's a similar tone there. And so he thinks that some of those people who voted for Trump last time around boxed news viewers or the folks that he could get to and at least some of his lines at that Fox News townhall. Now, I think it was an unusual audience that we're chosen because they liked Bernie very interested in him. But he got some real applause. I don't think it was the Sean Hannity home team me neither. But but you make you make I think an important point. And I would also point out the Sandra's is running a little differently this time than the last time. I mean, I'm not to say, he's not a populist. He's still in economic populist socialist, he's still well to the left on economics. But notice he's what he's emphasizing this time, it's the Medicare for all plan. He realizes the primacy of healthcare in the presidential debate this time, and the the rollerblading Democrats getting the house in two thousand eighteen and he's not so much stress. Break up the banks. He's not so much stressing as as Elizabeth Warren is some of the ways of changing the capital structure. He's talking about the single payer healthcare is making it his centerpiece. The other thing he's doing what you didn't do last time as much is. He is really stressing trying to stress his role in the importance of identity politics, and the next in the minority vote and African Americans and he's talking about issues of social Justice in issues of criminal Justice reform and other things that he thinks can get him a larger share of that minority VO which we know is so important in some of the democratic primaries, like, South Carolina and across across the south. And he really struggled with that a voting group less time around one other thing that he is doing that. I find intriguing to has to do with kind of back room democratic politics, which is last time around because Hillary Clinton was his main opponent. There was a byu among the Sanders camp that pretty much every establishment democrat was in her field. And so he ran very much as an insurgent and outsider who was pushing against that group. She's not in it this year. The the field is much more fractured. So you've seen him on a lot of his campaign stops making a point to reach out to a lot of these officials have meetings with folks that would traditionally have been, you know, against him or or on the side of a Hillary Clinton and try to turn them into allies recently. For instance, he he had an outreach to Randy Weingartner who is. The head of the American federation of teachers so big powerful union head in the past. That would have just been hill club you who's a supporter of Hillary Clinton. Exactly big supporter, but you know, Bernie's trying to make some inroads there. And it's a it's an understanding that he's going to do better. Just as it was with the FOX town hall that you, you know, the more people you get on your side, the better. Well, I think the the the question that let's assume that he continues to do very very well and maintains a very strong presence in the democratic nomination fight going into the through the debates and into the autumn. I think that there is a at that time there's going to be a real debate in the party about. Whether nominating Bernie Sanders is is is leaves them capable of nominating somebody who could lose to Donald Trump. And and you'll see the date. You'll see you. May see if he remains if he becomes a kind of Trump front runner, which is to say leading and doing well, but not running away with the field. People try to say, all right. Who can be anybody? But Sanders, let's find a candidate who can beat Sanders. And once that happens, you can you see Sanders using as a foil against AFC. They've wanna take it away for me again, they're trying to steal it for you again. And and that is going to be a fascinating moment. Because I mean, I had I had breakfast today with a Republican strategist who who likes Trump voted for Trump. But his view is that Sanders is the only democrat could probably lose to Trump this in two years, which is interesting, obviously, we're a long way away from from from the election, and we don't know what's going to happen. But it's interesting because the point being that Sanders would allow some of the. Republican college educated Republicans who are unhappy with President Trump ah even women to say, well, Bernie Sanders is just a bridge too far. Well, as an illustration of how tricky this is for Democrats will take you and listeners down memory lane back to April of twenty sixteen and we were coming up upon the Indiana primary. Donald Trump was very close to locking up the nomination. He didn't quite have enough delegates and he was still facing Ted Cruz and John casick Ted Cruz of Texas Senator John casick, former Ohio governor, and they made it an alliance. Do you remember pack very much on that those lines saying anyone, but Trump we will we agree not to compete against each other and the remaining states solely for the purpose. Neither of us could win, but we're going to do this and not take each other's vote solely for the purpose of denying Donald Trump the nomination, and it absolutely backfired. Donald Trump's support in Indiana like went up by fifteen points over the space of a week. Because voters were so outraged that this was. Basically an effort to to stop a guy who'd at by that point one the majority of the delegates. So this is the this is the difficulty. Democrats could face going forward, especially with such a huge field. That's fracturing and splitting so much which leaves a guy like Bernie who's relatively more popular than everyone else. You Don isn't necessarily commanding a majority just like Trump wasn't. But he's doing better than the other. Folks. Here's a here's a interesting question that I don't know the answer to, but I just want to raise it, which is how because I think it's going to be fascinating to watch. How the? The liberal democratic pundit class by which I mean, almost everybody in the mainstream media will sort themselves out when it comes to considering the Sanders candidacy this year above all, the the these this group of media types wants to I'm talking about the New York Times, the Washington Post CNN MSNBC above all they wanna beat Trump. And are they going to view Sanders, and his ideas as too radical for this moment in American politics, or will they say, you know, what maybe this is the moment we should cash in. I mean, it's going to be interested into with with some of these liberal ideas. And it doesn't matter because we can be Trump. No matter who we run. I think it's going to be a fascinating question to watch. Oh, I agree with you. And one of the things that has everybody wringing their hands as well. That's behind these stories that are either smearing Bernie or talking about the concern is they're also very worried that. That if a Bernie gains, traction more traction than others, for instance, but not enough to completely lock down the field and win that he lures in one of these centrists a guy like Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks maven or more Michael Bloomberg who again has said that he's debating looking at this. And then you really split the field and really make it harder to beat Donald Trump Sanders. Trump fight could if if if those are the two choices could could make Scholtz inclined to more inclined to to get in the race. All right, Kim, fascinating stuff will be following this as the debates unfold in the Democratic Party. Thank you, Kim. Thank you all for listening. We'll be back later in the week with another edition of Potomac watch.

"However when a welcome slash daily for Wednesday April Twenty Second Twenty. Twenty on today's episode we're in talks with the latest film and TV news. This is slash on editor-in-chief Peter Surata in during the podcast is slash film senior Ben Pearson. Hey what's going on it writers watcher and Billy everyone in Chris Evangelista? Hello folks. Let's jump into it. We have news podcast today. There's a lot of news that broke yesterday like it's been like weeks and weeks of a drought of news and like it. Seemed like everybody decided to like announced their new things and just for. I don't know why it was but there was just a ton of new news yesterday. Maybe feel alive kind of sad but Chris. Let's start with something that Brooke today. Actually and that is that. Westworld is getting renewed for four season and might be planned for six season run. What do we know yes? Here's something that doesn't make me feel alive instead. It makes me grown inside because west raw bad now but people are not bad. No it's really so people are still watching it though so H. B. O. Has ALREADY GONE AHEAD? And given it a four season and while it's not official yet Behind the scenes rumblings indicate that Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan. The the show runners are pretty much attached to make six seasons in total so not only is. Are we getting another season? We're getting two more seasons after that. Apparently which I'm sure we'll make someone happy but not me. Hey I'm happy. Crest does me. I'm wondering crisis. Okay let's talk. Let's talk briefly about West from I? Guess Spoilers for the end of season two. It's not really spoiling anything. Because they're marking the whole marketing for season. Three reveals this so season one took place in the park season to explore other worlds within this. Delo spark structure in season. Three outside of the park into the future world itself. It all seems like this season is going down to an end game of you know. There's this Big Evil Corporation who owns a simulation of everything in existence and Dolores and it almost felt like this season was going to end point. That could end the series so I guess my question ups. Where could this possibly be going because I feel like every season has been kind of like an onion peeling off another layer or peeling into you? I guess from the inside out the core out and and like an onion. It stinks and makes you cry. But what's the what's the other layers? What are the three other layers? We're going to get to because I I. You know I'm right there with you. I honestly don't know where the show going from here because this season has had nothing to do with the parks which is fine but this season like at the moment. It's all about like bringing down society. I guess as we know it so maybe like the next next three seasons are going to be sort of like planted the apes thing where it's like robots have taken over the human world. It's only thing I can think of because that seems to be where this season is going. Where Delores is bringing down all these you know human things and maybe the next season is going to be you know robots roam the earth. This is me just spitballing. I have no idea all I know is I wish the show would end. I'm GonNa Still Watch Chris. I I think that could be cool if we actually get the Ark of the robots taking over the world and then eventually the human uprising to regain it. No Yeah I said when I wrote this story up that even though I'm not happy with the season if if they pull off like a killer season finale then I will reluctantly watch the next season but for now. I'm I'm really not enjoying what's going on with the show. Okay speaking of nodding not enjoying things. An another hunger games movie. Hd What we all need in the world right now. Another Hunger Games movie Lionsgate has officially confirmed that. They're moving forward with an adaptation of the Hunger Games prequel novel the Ballad of songbirds and snakes and this hunger games. Prequel we'll tell the origin of the series villain president snow. Who's played in the film by Donald Sutherland? This is an adaptation of the upcoming book that Susan Collins has has written. It'll be published Some time in May may nineteenth. And it's been in the works for about a year now with talks and discussions Kind of going around. But now lionsgate has confirmed are officially moving forward with it and That Francis Lawrence is returning to direct the film after Helming the last Three hundred eighty movies corrected catching fire and mocking Jay. Part One and mock Jay part two. So he will be returning as well as a few of the of franchises old creative team including Nina. Jacobson who bruce. All the hunger games through these is anybody excited about this is like I feel like hunger. Games is one of those phenomenons that even the people involved didn't understand why it was so big. Yeah I I definitely am not excited. I don't think right. Now we the world. Is You know excited about an anti here. Movie about rich white man's rise to becoming a tyrant but Yeah I don't think that I mean other than Donald Sutherland. Who was fine in the movies? I don't know if there's a big appeal to this character Read all the Hunger Games Books? Thought you know they were okay. They had some good ideas. But sort of the juvenile writing style and then a really really bad ending kind of soured me on the entire series and the movies themselves were just kind of fine as well. I. They're a little too I came a little too late for me to get onto the on board the way hype train for it. So it was just It was a phenomenon that also escapes me. Kind of I watched the last movie. 'cause I hated the ending so much of the book but I can't say I'm excited about this prequel movie. I guarantee Kiefer Sutherland to play the young Donald Sutherland. That's my question would actually be fun. Rick how young is the character as a teenager because that wouldn't work but if he's like thank you actually? They should get a teenager because that would be amazing. Another thing that I think. We're not all excited about. Let's talk about Venom to Penn. Tell us about that. Yeah so there are two little pieces of news here about Venom. To one is that the release date has changed from October. Second Twenty twenty which is when it was originally supposed to come out is now coming out next summer. So June twenty fifth twenty twenty one is when thin them to will be unleashed upon the world and the more interesting piece of information is that it now has an official title which is Venom Colon. Let there be carnage. Which a Chris. Evangelista liked so much that he actually changed his username and our slack channel to Chris. Evangelist let there be carnage. It's a good tidal. I'm not GONNA do. We need this Chris. I'm getting notifications on my phone throughout the change it back your phone just updated. It was a one day thing. 'cause LIKE WHY DO. I have to be reminded of this title. All Day Long. Yeah I so we don't really know much about the movie I mean. Obviously leather carnage is referencing. The character of carnage which is played by Woody Harrelson. He brags briefly appeared in the first minimum. I'll be honest with you guys. I never watched the. I still have not seen that movie even though I know most of the people of this podcast happen and even like some of its moments. Remember Jacob specifically going to bat for like a couple of moments from that movie. I haven't seen it yet been solidarity right. Maybe I'll get around to it but I'd totally forgotten that Andy Circus is going to be directing the sequel. Which like I think. I wrote the new story about that when it happened. But that's how little I care about the these non. Nc You any marvel movies right now. That I just totally forgot. That was the thing that's happening but that is happening and Yeah so I guess Tom Hardy. Coming back to fight carnage this time and now they have an eighth an eight month delay to hopefully make the movie. Is You know as good as it can possibly be. Well that may be delayed. But Warner Brothers is not going to delay the release of Hbo Max's their new streaming service. They have announced the official one St Hd when are we going to get HBO? Max Yes we knew for months that. Hbo Massively Launching Some Time In may twenty twenty but now we have learned the official launch date is may twenty seventh. Twenty twenty Warner media has set this launch date and announced a slate of six Max originals of the not called. Hbo Maximum Max Originals That will be debuting on day. One which include a new Anna Kendrick series. Who apparently is kind of the GO-TO NEW PLATFORM STAR? She has a series on Abi and on Disney plus. She has a film on Disney. Plus now has a series on love life so you know peacock series when which is called Love Life Sundance documentary on the record. A underground ballroom dance. Competition legendary. A crafting show called crack topiary a new looney tunes cartoons and the sesame workshop's the not too late show with ELMO. So this'll be. Launching may twenty seventh now and That's coming up soon. I know we're all stuck at home or looking for more content. Is any of this exciting to you? It's not too late show with elmo actually looks kind of fun even though I'm not the target audience for it. It just seems like a real fun spin on the late night. Variety show format with John. Laney shows up so I just Kinda WanNa see John Laney's episode because he already seems like sesame street character come to life and so yeah. That one's looks fun. I like the idea that their new looney tunes cartoons. I'm no it's fine. It just kind of looks like it hits all the beats of like every millennial wrote the dating show like Romance Show But you know Emma. Kendrick has charming enough so I might check it out I am more excited about the sort of library of Warner Brothers content. That's coming with it. Like Warner Brothers as well as HBO and Various Affiliates DC entertainment etcetera so The doctor who series of new series coming on as well as friends and the Jubilee Collection. So it just it's more exciting for me for the library content than the new stuff but maybe once we learn. More about these new originals. I'll get I'll get I'll be lucky. My interest yeah. It should be noted that we do have the trailers for all those. Hbo Max Originals. And we'll put a link to that in the show notes. WanNa go check them out right now. let's talk about Warner Brothers. Wonder Media They I guess with the current buyers. They're now starting to rethink the theatrical model. Then what does that mean? I don't really know Peter so The Chief Operating Officer of at and T. Which owns Warner media and others said on an earnings call this morning that the company is quote rethinking are theatrical model and looking for ways to accelerate efforts that are consistent with the rapid changes in consumer behavior That's a pretty charged quote because without the proper context. You could take that to me in that. They might be thinking of abandoning the abandoning the Dakhil model entirely. I don't know if they're willing to go that far. In fact I would almost bet a large amount of money that they're not willing to go quite that far but you know we're living in different times now. So Warner Brothers has already implemented changes that just a couple months ago. A few months ago would have been totally unthinkable for this industry. Like birds of prey was made available on digital platforms way sooner than it would have been otherwise just yesterday that scuba with an animated feature that were designed for a theatrical release is scamming theaters entirely going straight to digital so. I think that's probably what he's talking about is just rethinking the options for every movie that they have and really like giving each film a close look and deciding which ones are worth saving for theaters. And which ones aren't We'd reported a while back that that there was a story going around. That Warner Brothers had actually considered releasing wonder woman nineteen eighty-four digitally instead of putting in theaters. Evidently that did not happen they. They bumped the release date. That's scheduled for August but the fact that they were considering it. I think sort of speaks to what this quote is talking about. They're rethinking theatrical model. What does that mean? Which movies exactly are they? Are they going to be dropping on digital which ones is going to be holding for theaters? There are a lot of questions here. But that's sort of where we stand right now. Yeah they're they're gonNA really Tenet straight to your small. Tv just the way. Christopher Nolan Watts but not going to happen at the most thing here is that quote was not to not come with any kind of like reassurances to the exhibition like community to NATO. And all those. You know these movie theaters like usually when you have a cold lake this. Don't worry you know this is just like a one time thing or just a very broad quote. That is intriguing. Possibly scary and made show us what what the future holds for us but You know talking about the future holding for us. There is this documentary called spaceship Earth in the neutral has just come out this from neon. And they're distributing this an innovative way. Yes this is really interesting. I don't think I've seen enough coverage of this online because Peter. Have you ever watched a full movie on a restaurant's website because that is every never week then everybody? What's going to happen here? So especially for. Is this documentary about these people. Who in the early nineties spent two years? Quarantine inside of this replica. Earth's ecosystem. So you can watch the trailer on on our website and everything and the movie itself looks interesting and finding a little bit like wild wild country but more contained cult stuff going on there by the way when you say replica. The Earth's ecosystem. Where like talking about like bio dome from like because I feel like that's the the most cultural reference of what this is right. Yes Yeah Anytime. Paulie shore is cultural. We're we're as a society but the release strategy is the really interesting thing about this. So they're going to be putting this. Neon is the distributor the distributors of movie parasite and Portability on fire. They are putting this movie in drive in theaters and they're going to have to have some pop-up cityscape projections safely accessible by quarantined city dwellers. So we've seen this before. I think. Eight twenty four. Did they played movies on billboards across the country and in certain spots. But the thing. That's new about this is that this. Neon has teamed with a bunch of different companies to get this out to the widest audience possible. So they're launching it on theater websites and web sites of other businesses that have no attachment to the film world also like museums bookstores restaurants. Things like that can opt in and partner with Neon to make this movie available on their website. Which I've never heard of before I've never heard of you know you being able to go to the website of your favorite bookstore and watch a you know a rape recently released movie that way and you can go to to this article and find out more information if you're a small business owner and you're interested in partnering with them. You can sign up to do that at their website. You can figure out how to do that. The movies also GonNa have a traditional digital rollouts. It'll be available on Amazon and Fandango now and Hulu in Voodoo all the other sort of major places but I just thought it was really interesting. They're sort of rethinking. What a digital release looks like in the era of the corona virus and then also sort of opening things up to places that wouldn't normally have anything to do with movies and sort of helping them participate in this and get the word out that way. I feel like this just publicity. Did I mean I feel like many people are going to be watching this movie on a restaurant websites? Well I don't know how many people are actually going to tune in to do it but just the fact that it is now an option that has been done. I feel like it's more interesting for the ground that it's breaking then the actual numbers that might generate in this specific case but if the world continues the way it is I can see this kind of strategy becoming more of a normal thing than than it ever was before future of movie watching not not in the cinema but on a museum website. I guess maybe We were talking previously about south by southwest and how they have teamed with Amazon to bring their film festival which was cancelled onto the Internet for all to see We like heard the film makers were hesitant about signing on for this ambitious new way of presenting south by what is the result. Yes a new report from inverse suggests. That Amazon was having trouble finding filmmakers participate in the south by South West online festival. Which as he said was in partnership with south by South West but despites. The premise of the festival seeming like really generous way of offering the filmmakers the exposure that they would have gotten on south by South West. It's actually seems like could hurt the indie films more than they could help them In the report at least seven filmmakers declined Amazon's offer citing the slow screening fees and the Potential distribution deals. That could be Mess with if if the films were shown on Amazon Essentially These filmmakers who are looking to make distribution or sales deals Would not be able to Go through with these deals if they the films were debuted on Amazon to the thousands of people who have access to the Amazon website. Because this was being offered for free to everyone who has an Amazon account not just Amazon prime members so They're saying that if because Amazon is not committing to shooting these films. They're just showing them on their site. it's actually helping. It's not hurting. It's hurting them more than helping. Essentially and the day after that report Came Out Amazon revealed the South by South West lineup. Which is pretty slim. Only a several films were Announced on it and many of which we haven't really heard of So there are a thirty nine films. All which are narrative and documentary features. The narrative features are the cat in the wall. Gunpowder heart loose structure foot do selfie and a couple of other documentary features. Like I'm GonNa Make You love me. Darling Vivian and T.F. WWLTV NO GIF. So nothing that we had a specially heard of in the buzz leading up to south by South West so it seems like a lot of the Films that were being anticipated. And even some of the more major studio films just declined Amazon's offer. That's kind of disappointing. I'm wondering if you know once I if we get into the fall festivals and if they're canceled if we're going to change in the strategy here if we're gonNA see again actually like an actual online festival that is showing some. You know bigger films in the end how that's going to be held but it seems like this one is kind of forgettable Okay let's talk. Lastly about the opening reopening of movie theaters looks like you know Georgia is going to allow movie theaters to reopen next week. Crest House voted. Yes so Brian Kemp. Who is the governor of Georgia and the same person who claimed recently that he didn't know the current virus could spread without symptoms even though that is public knowledge to literally everyone announced that he's trying to reopen businesses in Georgia. This Friday's he doesn't like you know it's a bad idea. But he's going to do it anyway. And among the businesses he said that can reopen our movie theaters which he said could reopen Monday. Because I guess extra three day is the weekend will make a big difference. But here's the thing most movie theaters in Georgia. Even though they can reopen. Aren't going to reopen I reached out to AMC cinemark and Regal Cinema both cinemark and Regal got back to me and said they have no plans to reopen of variety dug into this and found out that. Amc is not planning on reopening pretty much. No one in Georgia is comfortable reopening despite what Brian Kemp says A few independent theaters might try and reopen. But for the most part people are still going to wait earliest I can get. I can see for a commitment. Here is cinemark you know. They're still pushing further July opening date and at least one independent theater owner in this story said they were going to wait until at least June to reopen. And maybe later than that so yeah when this story broke everyone was reporting Georgia. Movie theaters will reopen Monday. And that's they kind of jumped the gun there because it doesn't seem like that's going to happen so tell me this. Is there any like any restrictions here like is there like oh? They can reopen? But they have to have like you know. Six feet of space between people no no. There's nothing it's literally. Just you know have fun and I thought that I read that. Only ten people could be like gathered at once. They're they're holding true to that Restriction which means that. You know the for these theaters to open and like pay their employees to be there and I was. GonNa say projectors but people don't really do that anymore but you know to run concessions and whatever for only ten people to be allowed in at a time. I think I saw something where it's like. You know even theaters wanted to doesn't really make much financial sense for them. So maybe I'm is a ten people in a room or ten people in the business. Yeah I duNNo. I maybe shouldn't have brought this up because I don't have the specifics but that is what I read yesterday so and that also ties into it because even if theaters wanted to reopen my Monday. No one is really ready to do this. I mean all pretty much all theater. Employees across the country are furloughed or even laid off so no one's really ready to come back to work at the drop of a hat on top of that. There's also you know legal issues here like you know. Say say you know of movie. Theatres reopened and a lot of people. Do just go to the movies in Georgia on Monday If they get sick you know. Could they sue the movie theater and then on top of all of that? There's also the fact that there are no new movies. At the moment. Everything has been delayed. The earliest new movie at the moment is the Green Knight which is still a May release which is not going to happen and then beyond that there's July which has Moulana still intended but again those those dates could change so you know even if every theater and George said yes we are opening on Monday. They're not gonNA HAVE ANYTHING TO SHOW CHRIS. What what restrictions. And what would have to happen in the worldwide sense of this tendency to make you comfortable going into theater again to watch a movie. I mean I would need there to be like multiple scientific expert multiple doctors who know what they're talking about. Who all get together and agree. Yes you could go back to the movies like until that happens. I'm not going to feel that. Come from I mean. Yesterday's story broke. That revealed that the virus can now be spread by air conditioning. And summer is coming. And that's GonNa that's GonNa complicate things even like movie theaters. You're sitting in. The air conditioned movie theater is the air conditioning spreading the virus. Even more like a until. There's like near unanimous agreement. That things are okay now I. I think I'm always going to feel a little nervous. Also you know. I'm different in the sense that when I go to the movies I try to sit as far away from people to begin with so I was. I was a social visiting before. This even happened so I was out of the curve.

broadway obviously it's known for musicals and plays but stand up comedy when we're talking about comedians on broadway there's basically two categories one usually a series of characters bitter acted out by comedians and then the other category is straight stand up or storytelling first person in the performer who really kicked off this trend of comedians able to do one person show on broadway was a guy named victor board gonna end it all started october october second nineteen fifty three at the golden theatre and it was supposed to just be maybe a couple of week run at borgata ended up doing this show for eight hundred and forty nine performances didn't closed until nineteen fifty six still holds the guinness book of world records for the longest running one man show in the history of broadway i'm going to play accepts from the ups second piano concerto number two that is by about of course also wrote the music for this country all over this country out who was written in fall flat because i've had to move all times while you're older the stein way people have asked me to announce that this is eight ball wouldn't be out of three debate as to whether victor borges stand up because he also used his music and that in fact to show is called comedy in mute don't you like good music why did you enjoy outfielders things i love it we get to talk about this guy he will danish he lives in copenhagen he was a child piano prodigy then he became a comedian started doing films you would tore record and then had a league nazi germany came to the united states with very little money and learn the language and the most interesting how did you learn to speak english i would for the second straight i think fifteen cents one could sit and see three movies and you could sit for twenty four hours if you wanna do and i and i could see action with the words and i would memorize the words say the window actors and one of the many wonderful things about victor borgo is that two of his most famous standup routines rely on idiosyncratic nature of english language you know that in yankees language words of contained numbers such words as wonderful before create and so forth now by adding one do each of these numbers we have already instigated inflationary language so that wonderful by adding one would be to the forest and before will be be five create will be free nine and so on and so fish i may i say to you page from a book i have it here let me ask you why is upon a time there was a young little lebanon dingy army of viruses named bob livered in sunny eighty five near with his diana they had been very closed ever since i saw the light of day for the second time they were very proud of the fact that they're five follows had been among the three nine does all the american gun steep regions and then of course the classic phonetic punctuation which means why we talk we integrate punctuation marks by giving them some so that we have underlying our sentences as well when we speak as we do when we reid and all right sounds like there is a dash and exclamation point is a critical dash with the period underneath there is a comma quotation to commas this who happened to be lefthanded question august robert if it goes to finally the colon doodle total dots you know you'll demeans over onto each other that is they sound cynical i have here and i'm gonna do a short stories here how the system in the sound any open when the sudden became light beautiful reading or sat alone you mean off but one thing two years have passed since humid's so henry she did remember they unhappy evening when her father had thrown him out emily so what is love and she asked young so i couldn't live without okay this is incredible apparently andrew here has discovered this recording that i had never heard of a mixture you're borgen doing that same routine in nineteen thirty seven in a completely different language visited her others it's in the bay bush gonna date and this is three years before he came to america when it was still known is borgo rosen bal okay so i'm i'm looking at this nineteen thirty seven a danish recordings of phonetic punctuation in underneath the title track there's two other names listed like any other section with this routine written by someone else well apparently yes it seems victor borgo did not originally create his most famous routine fanatic punctuation any never gave them credit when he recorded or performed that bet he did that routine at almost every concert he gave often is a non core so guess what they sued victor borgata in one their loss so why do you think victor borgo was so popular on broadway well because he was ridiculous league gifted performer both musically and comedic lee but i also have another theory broadway is a pricey ticket and borgo he would puncture the pomposity andy formality of classical the music because one thing we know that classical music it serious is silly juxtaposition was a perfect fit for broadway after borgo concluded his original run of comedy music in nineteen fifty six seed revived the show again in the in the mid sixties during this time a young multi talented comedian from detroit with in new york developing interact in coffeehouses in clubs the first time i rented again shop closed juno this is lily tomlin so you could not get a spot where but friedman a damn proud if you were a girl any singer could get up and chain but if you do comedy and you were a girl you have someone speak for you i got in with a couple of guys at hung out at the improv end they dodged clooney killed brad let me have a spot on the show one night and i put on my you're my dad and i had a halter dress blue velvet cut on the by as an ankle straps and i had a big old fox fur coat locking you sort of look good at night new york's improvisation muslim forty fourth street between eighth and ninth in the heart of the theater district dilemma they're just waiting there waiting for their fair come out of the theater so they have like a lot of free time so i gave the guy like ten bucks fortress fairly good tip at that time andy he drove me up to them crop and i swept out in that in that outfit and i went right down just about right on and i did ten or fifteen minutes and i swept out got in the car in the left so that created kind of his patient for me you always had a sense of this yasser even back then yeah i did i did i did on march twenty fourth nineteen seventy seven at the biltmore theater lily tomlin presented her own one person show documents showing name showing like just lily tomlin well thank you all a lot i trained longtime of having my own show on broadway talking being a part of the theater would be so glamorous champagne chilling in my dressing room telegram i told my leaving the theater at night going out the stage door finding stay strong person way i saw in the play bill for that show that it said lily tomlin had under study i know which seemed impossible when i did appearing nightly zinc illinois who who is the un opera star i i said i'm not i wrote her in the play bill that she was really stand by and she sued me yeah genius to to me and we tear my peter like five thousand dollars i don't remember what we pay her but we had the pairs alone it's funny that think one day beanbag chairs will be into you sign on the highway i feel sexually threatened why when we talked the guy that could be praying but when god talk to us which gets a chance to describe the feeling of joy she said it's mild and gentle on your hand wastebasket in i carried at home in a paper bag and when i got home i put the paper bag and knowing all i ever wanted to do is have a theater i could just go on and do what i wanna do at any time of the season i got serious sees alternative by it anyway sir i never brought a theater but not show up site or mirror chores and i did it on and off after that worked on other stuff in the wake of lily tomlin who did not only jokes but also these amazing characters came another comedian who developed her show in san francisco and also at the belly room at the comedy store in los angeles a room that when it first opened with exclusively sibley for women starting with the characters and so all my characters told a story that's the voice of whoopi goldberg is i'm not access stand up stand up i'm sort of like a lean and i always think it's important to be able to take an audience a little bit of a journey as in the beaches like all my friends like all my friends with me out of nowhere else in l a total comes over to me and he goes like high and i would totally not ready for like the type of conversation about you know like i said hi and highly tonight guy like having a party ended i wanna go so i said okay so the sun is out of the valley girl this is alan king talking with whoopi goldberg from inside the comedy mine were discovered well listen i lifted the valley girl from man called taylor negra who i love who's just very very funny guy and i stand who used to do this very white and do beverly hills women and they all sound alike seen it i asked her if it was okay if you mind mind if i if i did that and he said no no no no go ahead take so whoopi has this idea combining all these characters and putting them together in a show in new york fresh today's nobody camp this is will be talking on oprah's masterclass about howard show went from off broadway broadway and then a an amazing review got written and the next thing i knew that midler with me audience and then there were fifteen people in the audience and the dirty and full capacity and then we were able to extend that might nichols k and he said i i love the show i i'd love to produce for you i said okay i thought it was kidding phone rang in about a month and a half later this is mr nichols that's like high they said would you like to talk about places we might do you show and i said you were serious i bet you kidding you said no no and i said well i don't know if you wanna really take me because you know i'm i'm gonna hit and miss some time sometimes i released sock is one of those less time you release that said say a couple of weeks ago do you think you some more often or less often and i said i i like less often he said well i'm willing the gambling and then six months later life december twenty second nineteen eighty six at the brooks atkinson theater one of the most unlikely broadway success stories stories occurs when the ethnic or ship lt nightclub comedian with this anachronistic act open to show on bravo of all this is a one man show which describes a lot of people you know a lot of people say who is one to make such a comfortable living but that's another thing you don't need to people but what show why is it that subconsciously people talking about in that the people they see the better the show you ever noticed that but the majority of show because the multiplayer they see some people were killed forty what i still watch how how long is this jackie mason known for before this this is he's almost the story of the jazz singer the cancer and then became a rabbi in a temple doing religious texts and then he starts adding jokes to his sermons end get the bugs they become a stand up comedian i don't know why was i went to a psychiatrist a lot of people i just took a look at me right away you said this is not you i this is w who is i said so what do i do you do for the find out who you are who said together we're gonna look for the review which i don't know why am i like what would it look like even if i find behind me if i wanna look to me what i want you to look myself but i could take my friends we know where i was like what am i find the real easy for me what do i need it i don't make it up on myself i need a bump music friday morning on doing if you need help in the search but the real you will continue that will be honored dollar certainly not the real me why should i give him the officer will meet with him give one of my mind the needle ogden all my money with a real in like a roller i know me might be like i i never be it's like i look like i wouldn't it be funny if you're the real me i won't be on and then there's this famous incident on television show were solomon thought the jackie mason was flipping them off banned from the show mates ensues sullivan it the rails his career in and so did broadway sort of become his comeback i saw when i was in high school in florida jackie mason play to a half full room in north miami beach this little club i went to costs five dollars did see him half a room is this a comeback this was the comeback of comebacks it was so unlikely because his act like i said before was so anachronistic even

crystal beat out three other one person shows that year the tony they were whoopi goldberg returned a broadway dwayne her show game at no which you the character created buddy australian comedian berry humphreys an mario can't town shows if he falls laughing toward one of the most prolific in multi talented comedians ever stepped foot on broadway is john leg is on now my journey to broadway was along in older is one on the number seven train from queens to manhattan and i i'm a sort of immigrant parents might my parents left l a's the columbia back during the break let's say right there in case you were looking for it but it wasn't a theater where i found myself man where i could write about my family but in code 'cause they're very litigious my family will sue that could also talked about my sexual failures on broadway and for that i got to tony nominations which i lost but there's reviewing of my personal life started freaking me out and starting in depression i found this therapists who specialize in positive thinking but i kept thinking what the hell good is that gonna do me then in two thousand eighteen at the tony awards john leguizamo is presented a special tony verse incredible body of work i always say that what stand up is is taking eight fatuous premise and proving it with rigorous logic this is jerry seinfeld and that really describes this show jerry got involved at the point where i just on the show like a rough version of the show and this is colin and clinton he said hey i'll producer you know he just said sight unseen he seen my other stuff he's always been a you know a great supporter of my other these other one man shows i do so we sell direct at i never directed at me but is it and i you know you want it on the show but there are elements of it that similar and ironically the only place it really still is beautiful clean air fresh beautiful mountain ranges clean water rivers lakes is canada and nobody wants olivia but it's not me saying adjust even people sneaking across the border to canada the entire country kennedy goes we've got jobs here social services liberal immigration policy healthcare that's nice i'm gonna take my chosen a giant fucking tuesdays anyway so don't feel bad for canada believe me this this strategy is to be boring and nobody goes up again stay looking nice and nobody wreksa it's obviously they're not trained a welcome have you ever seen the flag it's a leaf and not even trying even the national anthem some is tiny tiny dismissed a little it's like oh canada and you go up that they won't speak french when did that start i'll tell you when it stops the minute we leave i guarantee college shows were brilliant by the way that's my degree i had gone to college for screenwriting play right and so i i wrote distractive apply and then i went in i saw everything on and off broadway so i saw no lily tomlin and it will be special i hired bennett stand up comedians i thought like moved to new york and tried again in clubs and then i'll i'll keep pursuing plays and scream place in hopefully those two things can match at some point in here i am forty years old they finally have micro bigly made it to broadway in two thousand eighteen with a show called the new one i find that where you fall in love you tend to overlook overlook certain red flags and one of them was that she would say really means stuff to me but then she would pull it back she'd be like no one likes you at all only kid and you're like you're like a nerd but you're not even smart just joking can choose who you love going to broadway is strange on a dominant the outrageous thing you're in this big beautiful theater you know you're in times square which is its own tourist attraction when you start to perform like a show where sola play versus a series of shows you really do have to convey a store you know like in a comedy club something happened in the crowd going in the crowd you could end up on a ten minute tangent annaborough is you can't do that there's eleven under thousand eleven her people in the audience you gotta bring along for the ride no matter what andrew i have a question for you yes would it be all right talk briefly about not one man shows but comedy teams on broadway but that'd be okay a little out the reason i ask is because recently to stand ups john laney and nick kroll joined the list of other comedy teams who had broadway shows like dudley morning peter cook and mike nichols in the lane may so colin laney had a wonderful run on broadway with their show called oh how low and although they were playing character a lot of the lines in that show came directly from their stand up act shea frank he's forty five here no kidding three okay tempting killed so to speak so still hard they stop making the ford bronco can you imagine doing something so fucked up they know more toyota camry definitely totally jokes that both of us had written or thought of that war were more much easier to deliver as as these characters then as knicker john what nick kroll there's something about being on broadway that is kind of a unlike any other experience i've had so far in in show business as comedians were you doing clubs are going on tour but when you were doing rodway it's like you're touring a beautiful theater but you never have to go on tour you're just in the same place every night and everybody comes you pete there's something about people walking into a broadway show the audience has high expectations but also they've paid a lot of money a ticket they're excited to be there there's there's just the heightened spectacle in a way that you don't always feel doing regular stand up in a in a club in a even in a theater we left this great traditions of the seed and that is why we plan to pay him page to tonight example citing phone call i know inside if you call this is very good this is when a character makeshift one call but they do it in a very stagey way where they repeat the fun call information the other characters very scary counterfeit no one would have in real life oh hell out then please do way too much business with the phone rarely show de audience you've been working with that process for weeks ladies and gentlemen a one sided when called oh hello john i'm sure the police that you you are you're you're doing that show on broadway but then there's the kind of community around it and there's barsa trawling and joe allen and we'd go i don't know how many nights a week after shows the joe allen's and get a burger and a martini teeny and i felt like i was somewhere in show business between nineteen thirty in in in now when you're on broadway the restaurants around would know specially sar these here's the pre again the saudis says to menus they have a menu for the regular people and they ever show business man you got if you're in show business you're on broadway you'll get a discount there anyone i mean i feel like i've heard other standups performing one person shows on broadway yes there were a number of comedians who had limited runs on broadway i'm gonna name just a few dave allen shelly berman lewis black red buttons bruce foresight sites danny gains kathy griffin jay johnson robert klein bill maher julia sweeney yakov smeared off and then there's a different category is if you comedians who just used the beautiful broadway theatre as their venue for their television special they might do if you warm up shows and then tape it or do it live like jerry seinfeld when he did i'm telling you the last time or robin williams and guess who's coming to broadway at this year dave chapelle i don't know if it's gonna be a long run or short run or a netflix special like bruce springsteen just did will find out why do we keep ending are episodes with dave chapelle but were not going to this year because i liked the end this episode if you don't mind andrew i mentioning one of the great performers not stand up but basically sat down at a desk and told phenomenal stories his name what spalding great i'll have to check him out just did is they don't they don't way way way too many in light of a song the history of stand up is written and produced by wing fetterman in mean andrew stephen executive produced by jeff umbro in pod glum rent you could find more of their podcasts at the pod glummer dot com special thanks to dick kept free nick kroll to show big mouth is available on netflix cliff nastro lily tomlin the abraham comedy archives in my degree a broadway show the new one coming to las angeles in the fall for five weeks forty performances of amazon would as part of their quote unquote broadway theory so what is it just means to you that you have your inner show that's part of a broadway series that's the one that i will say that is one of the strangest part the other night i did a benefit and it got written up in page six six am for the first time they called me like broadway funny man like per bigly and i go like i think that's what i got out of the broadway run they just got broadway funny man some of music in this episode is by brake master cylinder please

This Monday and US is able to teeth and thousands and thousands or filing tax online for free the IRS dot gov website. They'll Sally it may soon be legal for Americans to follow tax online for free as both sides or both sides of a frequently fractured US congress United on this important issue.

That is backed by both Democrats and Republicans which has passed krill community critical community stake mini stage just one week before the US tag before the US tax filing deadline of discipline, Monday, April fifteenth under the current Bill the eternal revenue service will be prevented from creating latronic piling software for his own tax system. Instead the America the Americas one hundred forty million one hundred forty million taxpayers will be obliged us feet. Charging software from one of the companies dominates the extremely property. Tax volley market, the largest being turbo tax and h block the extrordinary measure, preventing a government agency from developing software to interact with own systems is a result minute tense lobby intense lobbying on the part of the software companies who fear that free IRS filing system would undercut the undercut the prophets. The provision is the same the vision. Skews me is a result of more than decade of lobbying from these software companies back in twenty two thousand seven a bipartisan Bill that would limit free.

Why do we fail the Levin track from the dark? Knight rises. On-track Warner Brothers did not respond to requests for comment. Twitter not respond to requests for comment removal is notable.

Roles. Trump has regularly flouted Twitter's rules with almost no repercussions with Twitter claiming that the president's tweets are inherently newsworthy and therefore protected under ambiguous exemptions. The company says an blog post published in two thousand eighteen quote elected world leaders can play a elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because their outsized impact on society blocking world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial tweets would would hide important information.

HR 2: Animal Impersonations

"It's ucla world. Greg wanna chip. Kelly fired so did ireland now. He's the greatest thing that's ever walked. The planet and ucla is going to win the height. Chardonnays going to win the heisman trophy and chip. Kelly is going to the college football player. I'm the only way. What does it win. The heisman is if wins it he. I don't know about that one. I can't go there i loved. Etr you know part partly. I don't know if. I told you the snot john but i partied with. Ddr's dad's girlfriend if you can follow that down in costa rica you've larded with dtra's dad's girlfriend and She says really. Great kids. On the way i like him. I think this is a real game. Ucla's in this came in. i think for fresno state is better than people think. When this game. I was scheduled. Ucla starts favored by twenty three and a half. Now it's down to eleven. And i'm not sure i wouldn't take fresno state i took i. I made a mythical money bet on fresno state. But i think. Ucla win the game and On the other side trojans minus eight at washington state and you know what. i think. We're going to start talking about here on monday. The dante williams effect that would be the worst possible thing for you and other. Us dante williams. That half that dante would say williams but the last time that happened. Clay helton took over as interim sarkat drunk. They fired him was or was he. Did he replace lane. I can't remember who came first. And then he replaced lane. No i think it's the other way around. I think lane was first and then sark right or was it the other way around no i. I'm pretty sure coach. Oh came after lane after ain't got fired in the lane interviewed sart so when lane got fired and clay came in and ran off a bunch of wins. Then they said oh. Let's just give him a permanent job. If dante williams runs off a bunch of wins we already know how that school thinks. Zero percent chance zero. Everybody said about zero percent chance that dante williams bought clay the dante williams effect. This year. what do you got the dante williams effect if nothing against this guy. I hope he does. Well yeah why. Do you not like dante williams. Because i think it'd be very bad for you. If he got the permanent job. I think there is zero. Chance he will get the permanent job market back and listen to any show did back when lane got fired and they gave it to clay. You would have said the exact same thing about clay. Not even code and get the job. He had a great run coach. Clay had never been a head coach and gave him the usc job if williams runs the table. You don't think he'll be a candidate zero. I'm not a candidate. He's zero chance of getting the job. There would be an there. Would people will go crazy. Us fans would go crazy if they gave the even even if he wins out from here. And i think there's there's i think. Us's got so much talent and you often get a burst out of an interim coach. Dante williams effect. I think is real. We'll be talking about it next week. Here after they blow out washington state schedule favorable. That game at notre dame in. October looks tough. But i think dante williams even if he wins. Let's see there's ten twelve games. On the season. They played to win the pac twelve championship game and the rose bowl think even if he wins the next twelve games. He is not the head coach at usc. That's crazy yes he is yes he is if he if he goes if he goes to the rose bowl or if he goes to the college football playoff no. He's absolutely getting that job. I don't i think it's going to be very tough. If you're not oregon to get to the college football playoff that's because ucla's going. Oh i forgot. ucla is gone. No i i honestly think so. Who do you want to give you a genie in a bottle and you can pick the coach who you take I think i am going. I struggle with this john. The guys i like our mario cristobal. Who had orwell from the daily news says is their first choice. And eric b enemy. I think it's a. I think it'd be terrible move. I think it'd be a great move. The other thing is. Do you know about eric. Pm history when yeah. I know there's there's something yeah. I know there's something some dui's and stuff like that. I don't think it's a dui. I think it was some other stuff there. I mean there's issues but when he was very young right. But kim carol fault. There's some female issues there. Carol full look the other way on that. he's a young guy. He was a young guy when all this stuff went down. I know very young but they have a female president. I mean the guy was. The guy was twenty and stuff. Well i'm just saying that's a tough sell in this world where everybody is looking to cancel everybody the incidence. Go back to nineteen ninety three right. He was banned from the colorado campus. Where he was a star running back right right nineteen ninety-three. There's one incident of speeding. There's one it's at some point you've got to say all right. We're we're ready to move beyond this stuff. This stuff happened literally twenty years ago. More literally twenty years ago. Yeah i mean. I just don't know i. I wouldn't hire him because he's never been a head coaching. Usc desperately needs to get the. I think nfl ties are really really valuable. I think players love the fact that my coach actually knows how to get to the nfl. The enemy does. Do we know if eric b enemy even calls the plays in kansas city. We know i. Don i mean i. I don't know the specifics that we know is the offensive coordinator. Learned at the hands of andy reid right well. This is the same thing when romeo cornell and got a head coaching job in in cleveland. Everybody said well. He's learning at the hands of bill belichick except that belichick was calling all the defensive plays at least in the case of lane and sark. They were calling. All the plays and pete took care of the defense. Pete carroll took care of the defense. I was you know carl durrell was named the head coach when he was an offensive coordinator for rick. New heisel when rick was calling all the plays. So here's the thing about Working with andy. Reid look at his tree john. Harbaugh doug peterson ron rivera. Sean mcdermott who's now buffalo matinee. Who's struggling right now. Todd bowles pat shurmur. He's he's he's got arguably the best tree of any. Nfl current nfl head coach. Right well and eric. The enemy would be a great branch of that. Yeah i would not hire be enemy. But i would hire crystal crystal ball a lot i would. I would make dabo say no. No i think they should. You say i think they should call bella check. I think they should call. Nick sabin i think they should. I mean you just want him to call everybody and there's no harm in calling. I just think there's no chance dabo sweeney's lieven clemson. That's what everybody says until they leave. Everybody said no way jimbo. Fisher was leaving florida state and now. He's the coach texas. Everybody said no. Way nick sabin sleeve and lsu and now he's head coach at alabama. You know it happens all the time. Yeah i think Someday they will be playing a dabo sweeney stadium. I don't think he's going to go. This is my my take. He's not going anywhere all right so There's an article in you found this. John in men's is a men's weekly. I think is the article forty traits that make a truly attractive man. This is from ask men ask men so wanna rattle through some of these and john react honestly about yourself. Okay bergman you tune out. I have these two. Yeah okay number one. You don't feel the need to constantly brag about material goods. I don't own any material goods so about material down to material. You're wait a minute. You said you've got a house with four giant power with a bathroom hoop in it. I would like to brag more. So i'm going to. I'm going to say that. I do not qualify for this one because we had more things. I would brag about him. You make sure those close to you are valued and appreciated. I do that. That is so me you never do that. How many times do i say you're the guy that holds a show together once a month kirkman who made. Who made you feel at home when you came back to the show. I mean you did. Make me feel at home as soon as i got back by making fun of me. What would what would the former board ops in the former producer. Say about that. I mean i think treated everybody. I mean back in the day. If you want to go back to our earlier in the nineties. I was a jackass. Dave singer say he would say he's what's the next one. Let's see you know your limits when it comes to drugs and alcohol now. That's certainly me dinner with. Were so stoned you couldn't see couldn't sign papers or something right public space limits. John d. do you ever get to deepen a bottle of wine. Hell yeah it happened last tuesday. Yeah most of the time. Yes horry. Four bottles of tequila. And the answer is no bergman. I my limits. i know when to stop i do. Okay here's a good one. You know the women are worth more than just. There looks I would say that. I've evolved on this. You have evolved. When i was younger. I'd be guilty of no there but now i clearing 'cause lisa's smarter than me knows everything and i'd like is the whole package. Show i now. I now can say yes to that bergman. I think that was a a learned process to so yes now but not not a milwaukee bucks. Just named female play by play announcer. Yeah leave. She's like overqualified for that job. She'll she'll i think she's going to get. Let's do one one more. We can save some of these for later. Let's see you got a strong sense of humor. That shines bright. Well that's me that's all me. I'm the i'm the one of the funniest people you know. So it's break time. I guess it is break time. Thank you people who say what you just said. Yes are normally very insecure about their sense of humor. I am so not insecure about my sense of humor. I'm just flat out funny. It's like if you ever hear people talking about how much money they make. That's never me. They probably don't make that much completely agree. Yeah completely agree for a lot of money quiet. You never hear him talking about it. Did you see it was a big day for the clippers. And they're hopping. Let's we'll we'll touch on that coming up next for you. And also i got a thought about the dallas cowboys got thought about the dallas cowboys and we should really hands up. Ram hands up. We gotta give that a spin to you. Know we should play the original version of ram hands up for john. He hasn't heard it to steve mason version. The way it started. We'll do that coming up for you to mason ireland seven. Espn billion dollars. It's not one of those. Like i hurt national contest defeating against thousand radio states. Whatever it is. We are giving away a million dollars every monday. You get a chance to win rams tickets and if you win you get a shot at the million bucks. Every winter gives us their prediction of the two super bowl teams and the final score. And if you nail it you got a million bucks. It will happen three times during the nine greatest hours in los angeles for sports fans travis and sleep with mason an ireland and sodano. And how do you like dare you listening to travis and sleep at all john all the time. They're killing it. They're killing it. Yeah the the fact that we're going all local from nine in the morning till seven at night is now. I'm on our station before that. Flip around a little but not anymore. Yeah not anymore all right. So the clippers made their big song and dance party today. Of course mama was there. Because she's on the clippers payroll bomber. Pays her if she were recovery. She is not on the payroll. I watched her interviewing bomber today and he actually handed her a check at the end of the interview. Right now. who's check is bigger momo's or arosh. Oh that's a good question. Because they're both they both making a lot of love. You could just live on bomber money. Know momo makes more from bomber. I think than she makes from. Espn that's how big this. So they're sticking a new building in inglewood in. It's called the clippers building and they're they're super excited about it and you know what i say. It's lipstick on a pig. You're the clippers. Well first of all assuming. I'm still working in the league. I'm going to get to do games from there. And it supposedly going to be like the suffice stadium of the nba. So that's exciting. I get two games in there. But but bomber said something that struck me as odd. I'm going to read a quote from him. And i want you to react to it. Okay okay he said quote. We use our expression. La our way. We're building our own identity. And if the other guys feel a little threatened the other guys fans i mean the players are actually a little different deal but if they feel threatened that's okay means we're doing good and quote. Do you know any lakers fan. That feels threatened by the clippers. God what what kind of statement is that what. La our way means la. The lose all out in the second round. I mean i respect the clippers and i think they have a great roster and if they get john wall by the way which is out there. I think that that would really improve their team. I don't mean to to talk about their team in anything other than a. I think that they are challenger to the lakers for the western conference. They aren't this coming year. But that's not what steve bomber was referencing. He says the other guys fans. I don't know a laker fan. Who's threatened by the clippers to you. God no and by the way he talking about could build the great pyramid of giza in inglewood or he could put in the taj mahal or build the great wall of joe. Whatever it is. You're still the clippers steve. You're still the clippers. Can't can't run led an actual examined. He's running around the lifting. No building has lipstick on a pig. Happy happy for them. I if i were them. I would get outta staples center. Also there's to get out because you can't compete whether the third ten in a three ten building. Yes i've said many times. I would go to seattle because this will always be laker town. But if they're getting a new building good for them. I just think he's. He's sadly delusional if he thinks any laker fans care about what they're doing so we spent so much time over the summer talking about how laker fans always talk about the clippers and the clippers. Never talk about the lakers. That people talk about it all the time. It's on all the big show. What did they say they say. That laker fans talk more about the clippers than the clipper fans. Do about the lakers clippers. Fans we're the how there's like five of them in in now in downtown in orange county or something like that. Who who knows if what they're talking about of course. They're talking about the lakers. They're chasing the lake right but now this is now. This is boomer. This is your owner talking about and starting this conversation so they need to realize if you are a clipper fan out there and all the laker fans talk about you all the time. You're owner just did this. Yeah this is on your owner. We gave you a minute there. You go you got. Your new building took ground by the way there are all kinds of reports that co. I couldn't have been less interested. Well that's him. That's just no expression on his face. There bill scenario had the time. I met kawai and he literally did not make a sound. Even do that. So okay here's what happened. Michael knows him. My thompson knows quiet because quiet and clay played youth basketball together. So michael and i are sitting courtside and san antonio and walks up sees michael and without saying a word sticks out his hand to shake and michael tens because hey great to see a man. How's your mom and quite nods. He said you're doing great. Keep it up. i'm proud of you. He goes you know ireland and he nods at me and he sticks out his hand. I shake hands. Nice to meet you. Why any and then he goes back to shoot. He just doesn't talk. Which is one thing you know. He's a max player. Mace your max money. Sure but he's never gonna be like a vocal leader. that's part of the job is to be a showman. Well and he's a great player. Denying is great. You're expecting him to lead your team though to lead your locker room and be vocal you got the wrong guy mushroom both of the part. Because he's a fun guy. That's a michael tops. Funny you know what i heard about this. This this whole thing with the clippers new arena. They talked about how much bathroom space they have. And they all more toilets like. That's what your big thing is. You have more toilets toilets. Over title slogan is over there bigger troughs over titles toilets over titles toy league title l. a. r. way toilets over toilet so i wanted to talk about the other problem. Child actually ignored child here in los angeles the clippers who will make their debut at s-o-f-i stadium on sunday against the dallas communist chargers chart. What did i say the the chargers. So they're the guttering little charges. I like justin harbors a good quarterback and in brandon. Staley did a great job with rams. Don't you think that that is going to be. Won't there be more cowboy fans than charger fans of that game on sunday. I cannot overstate much. That will be the case. I think it will be north of eighty percent cowboy fans. You'd think eighty percent cowboy fans travel. There are a handful of teams in the world. The lakers are one of them that when they come to your town in the nfl. There's three of them. There's the packers the steelers and the cowboys if they come to your town they're bringing thousands of fans with them and because the cowboys trained in oxnard mace. Wait till you see. Wait till you see the amount of cowboy fans because still fis never let fans in there will be people flying in here from dallas for that game. It's going to be. It's going to sound like a cowboys home game. Trust me. yeah. I don't know why they scheduled that team for their first game. Well they didn't scheduled the nfl skit. Yeah but the. Nfl thinks about these things right. They thought hey. We're we're going to turn this into a gigantic deal. Where new put the cowboys here. And they're going to embarrass the charger fans. So the cowboys are. They played on the road last week to right. Didn't they play at tampa. Yeah tampa by the way. These national games with the exception of the ram game. Last night where i did. These national games have been unbelievable. I we had tampa dallas. That came down to the brian one in a kick on the last play of the game. Then we had the monday night. Game between the raiders and the ravens which was unbelievable yup and then last night came down to the last play the game field goal and penalty and then he kicks the field goal for the win. These national games of an unbelievable all right. Hey i wanted to tell everybody you can always email the show. Then mace at g mail dot com. If you have pictures of somebody with one eyebrow sure lebron back friendship who we talk to. Who shaved off his zaib rotate off in college just texted me. You can tell mason that the eyebrow after shaving will grow back in thick so he might need a referral to a good esta. Titian for threatening. Does that mean somebody.

Am here so the secondary was locked down in this first game right they were. They had the secondary had a great game They the run defense was questionable at times. Montgomery had a good day but the secondary was locked down. And i noticed a lindsey theory column. Obviously jalen ramsey is the key to that secondary ev. Other guys in the secondary have got nicknames like darius williams's de will david long as diablo kilo is never mistaken for de will now. We don't have nicknames like that like ireland. Would you have a nickname like that. No is there one. Horry workman j. I r- no i r- That's not working. No i've heard somebody call you. Johnny johnny was a little kid. Ya know. Johnny is a great nickname bergman. I consider your nickname to be bergman burgi for a long borough burgi as a long sausage gene much better than sausage sauces genes may have been the worst nickname. Puree exactly why we gave it to you. Dave singer tried to tried to give himself his own nickname. He put he took out personalized license plates. A swing. yes that said in his car. God bless it. So he would he. We asked him one day. We're all in studio. Will you said what's your nickname. He's swing. We said who gave that you said i did and we said we can't. You can't give yourself your own nickname. And he was eating a fruit cup of fruit cup for some reason. One of us said fruit cup. Dwayne and that's the nickname. Yeah it gave his name. It's destroying its decent. No it's not. It's fruit cupped wing. Cigarette produce my. The tom snyder show when i was doing it on top of the morning show and somehow he always brought up culver city baseball because he played he was a backup second baseman for culver high. So and i was always amazed that he was able to bring it up so i walk into the green room. One time and Sir ben kingsley. Is there in dave's like yeah. I played second base for culver high. Like ben kingsley. Cares about this well. That's wonderful that you played second base. It culver high and i'm like what is. Sir ben kingsley. Care about that it all led to call. I did him with that. He really hit him with that really. Hit him with that. You give a martinez his nickname. I did a martinez. Who's now the host of morning edition. Which is a really big deal on public radio. He didn't remember his name. A lot of the time he was like a board op or something. And i would say hey. Hey and that became his nickname. A hey martinez. And he's run with it ever since a martinez is officially his name. And there was an actor at the time that went by a martinez. That was a pretty good actor and after a while are martinez just stole the name. Yes yes. I'm coming up. Next for bergman jeff good stuff force today burgi stuff. I wouldn't call it. Good okay. we're gonna do jump. What good is it. If it's i mean we'll see you guys jump ball is coming up next for you mason in ireland seventeen. Espn i here. We go this is were greg. Bergman burgi throws a bunch of stuff. Burgi what do you got new celtics and former leader point guard. Dennis schreuder apparently talking about him. A lot recently has worn number seventeen for his entire nba career but seventeen boston app. John havlicek yup. That's exactly it's retired in boston for havilcek so schreuder has gone to his app called d. s. seventeen to ask for suggestions for his new number. The options are eight. Seventy one eighty eighty four and ninety six odd numbers for sure. But what's weird. Is the ninety six shooters a fan of soccer club. In germany called eintracht braunschweig. I think i think i got it right. Saying brown fag sounds right. We're actually ask the person that speaks german to say before. I did this. But the rival to this club is hanover. Ninety six so fans of the club are pushing hard on the ninety six number. Do you think laker fans are annoyed enough with schreuder to bombard his app and give him the ninety six number swipe left or swipe. Swipe left laker fans to swipe left. Swipe right that's okay. He's screwed up big deal just a mistake. I know laker fans care about insure hill. Hellawell mets yeah. Sorry a blue. All that money dennis. Dennis shooter walked into staple center right. Now nobody would even look twice. We have restaurants. And i don't care what number you wear up. Sorry made that really big mistake. Good for us. That we didn't pay you but i hope you i hope you're able to rebuild your value but outside out of mind. I don't think anybody is concerned about shirt or anymore. Do you bergman yeah. I don't think we're going to go do it anymore. I think at some point. I think people were pretty. I happen to while ago sympathy for the guy right. It's hard to not have sympathy for the guy to turn down that much. Money like generational money and then find yourself playing for. I think it's the minimum isn't john. You got the mid level at eastbound for like six point. Five eighty ninety four eighty four. I mean i feel somewhat sympathetic for dennis shooter. I i wouldn't. I wouldn't beat on him now. All right so carmelo anthony and shack gone. I take with stephen. A smith each each this week and both of them have said. The same thing about the lakers championship bust. We know the age we know. Who's there we know how they were built. Is this a big deal or no deal. Hey we're not doing big deal or no deal. What is what are we doing the jump. Oh my bad sorry. I'll get it. Right i used. It doesn't matter because championship or bust is is what the lakers year. I'll i'll put it this way that year. They had karl malone and gary payton. They started the season twenty in three and went to the finals and lost to detroit people in that season as a miserable failure it's championship or bust. Every year with the lakers mace but this year more than more than most. Because it's an older team loaded with hall of famers. And if they don't win the whole thing that they're going to be disappointed gam jibril. That'd be devastated. The whole ballgame lakers banners. Like the clippers do for chuck condor come on. I mean you know. We've got all their chips in the middle of the table. There is no question that the team is an older team. See carmelo said oldest. Hell but to me. That veteran ship is going to be the difference. Here and yeah. It's it's championship robust. I mean we've got lebron a very narrow window. What do you think john this year and next year. I think we're going to get close to peak. Lebron do you think yeah and a year passed. Said does he of a third year. I wouldn't bet against him. It depends. I think lebron's and mvp candidate this year because all those players didn't give him any votes for best player in the league. I think he's going to be a man on a mission. But yeah greg in any way not championship or bust. Is there any scenario that if the seasons in something other than a championship they would consider it a success. No i think any time any team in. La is always championship robust. If you're an l. a. team it always has to be for the chargers. They're not la their san diego. But it's not for the clippers. They've never made it to the final. San diego not untrue. Nothing with angels. They're also san diego. So i mean it there. There's two teams in the nba. This year that her championship or bust. It's brooklyn and the lakers and if we don't win it will be devastating. It will be devastating. I mean we have look. I mean we added westbrook. We've added all these veterans rob pelinka's put together a really really good roster. Really good team. It is older. So what a veteran ships going to make a difference. And yeah i mean if we don't win it all it's it's gonna be a very very sad day by the way yes rob pelinka that question. You'd say the same thing. Tiffany haddish has vowed to only listen to gay men from now on when getting hair advice. Her ex after her ex husband told her to get a perm and oliver hair broke off. So now me. I have a thing where i will only get a haircut from a woman after every dude that i've ever gone to has either cut me on my neck or screwed something up so i only go to. Women is it factor cap to stick to a certain gender for certain things do in fact or capital. A win is sorry next one. I'll get it right next time. I promise i also will only let women cut my hair. I just think that women are better at it. I know that sexist but nothing against male hairdressers out there. But if you're your guy i just went i've gotten to the same woman for twenty years. She's the only one gets to do it. I've gone to the same guy for twenty years. His name is sasha. He's a german guy and and i trust him completely. I think a lot of guys you know. A lot of guys just won't go to women. A lot of guys will only go to men really. Yeah that's be. There must be a thing in your tribe. Because everybody i know is like mean if you go to barber shop it's mostly as many barshop. It's all men. Now there's females at the barbershop. Are there yeah movie barbershop. Wasn't there some girls exactly. Yeah yeah. I i mean. It's a matter of choice. I mean i've had the same guy. Come in here for for years and years probably twenty years and i wouldn't trust anybody else to do it. So is there anything else. That you do gender-specific yeah go ahead and you're getting massages may st and they give you a choice. Do you go male or female male. Because i like a really really really deep massage. Like i want. I want an elbow in my back digging in. Yeah i'll go either on that. I don't have i don't have a preference i when i went the first available first of all i want. I want a deep massage. Somebody really does. Deep tissue. And i think men do better deep tissue than women. Ramona just sent me a picture. And she seems very proud of her and check the condor. Oh my god momo how could you. Oh that's funny. Chuck the condors wearing a mask all right. So this is the last one. Kevin hart and wesley snipes are going to be in a new limited series on netflix. Called true life that comes out in. November heart will play one of the most famous comedians in the world. Named kid this That's his character. Sounds familiar a stops in in his hometown of philadelphia and spends a wild night with his brother played by wesley snipes and this threatens to ruin everything that he built with what happens over the night. Does this sound like a winner to you guys to watch. I'm all olena kevin hart. I'm all in on wesley. Snipes like both. i'm in. yeah. I'm completely i'm a huge fan of Of kevin hart. He just makes me last comedy. Specials are awesome I love that real. The show does with robin thicke in all those guys. The fake reality show that he does. I think it's called real house husbands or something like that on on bt. I a huge kevin hart fan. I would say right now. If if i were to think best comedians right now at this moment. Who would you say best comedians. I really liked john mullany. Yeah i love. John laney i dave chapelle chapelle in the hall of fame. He's he's so good. I personally like amy. Schumer like ricky drew base and kevin hart is absolutely top five top. Oh chris rock's rock has it. He just hasn't done stand up in a while but chris. Rock is should be in the hall of fame. two. And kevin hart is i. I'm a very big kevin. Hart fan is that it grip. That's that's all you got bergen. That was four of them. That was four of them. Boy they really flew they did but they also wrong all four. No one of them was not botched that last one i i learned my lesson john. Yes it's weird though that you would actually lose your place and start calling it a big deal or no ever produced right there. I know i forgot one radio tender. You had what What what are they deal. Or no. Deal factor cap. I missed overrated underrated. I'm sorry i should've so as this show with. Kevin hart and wesley snipes overrated underrated. Either gonna read it okay so to tv questions. Yes even know this be honest. Just know that the emmys are sunday night yes. I did notes sunday night. I mean it seems like they've fallen off the map and nobody cares. Industry things right. I mean if you're in the industry you're into the emmys if you're into the in the industry you're into the oscars i i just don't think those things are for the broader public anymore. They're all spaghetti. Ratings are not anymore. No not at all i mean i think it's all about the industry padding. It's a cell phone it's collective back and then the other thing is so you have a choice tonight if you're gonna watch tv. I mean after the dodger game. Yes so on apple. Tv tonight. New episode at ted lasso. Oh yeah it's a standalone about coach. Beard it doesn't follow the storyline right. So it's like the christmas episode exactly same thing or debut of the morning show with reese witherspoon agenda aniston. Which when you watch i man. I love that inside. Industry morning show stuff. I would probably go that the ted lasso can wait. I can write that on the internet. If you know it's a standalone but if you've not seen the morning show you have to have watched season one. I think for it to make any sense at all. But it looks like the reese witherspoon in jennifer aniston. They're gonna have a rivalry. I dunno what corrales gonna do jillian. Margulis is on there now. It looks like they're just grabbing. Every big actor and actress. Who billy crude up bringing coming back so you get some choices tonight. Let me should. I ask one more. Should i hold it hold it hold it. Hold it okay. Cool i want to ask you about do another show business one David chase but also Let's circle back to the big story of the weekend. Which is the dodgers trying to chase down the giants mason ireland. Seven ten espn.

Who Won the First Democratic Debates?

"The fact is that in terms of bussing, the busing, I never would have been able to go to school, the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council. Do you agree today? Do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in America? Welcome to constructed. I Mattie Hudson twenty candidates two nights four hours and Chuck Todd the first democratic presidential primary debates of the twenty twenty election to place this week. Got help us hosted by NBC in Florida and featuring everyone from Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders to Andrew Yang, and Marianne Williamson. Yeah. Marianne Williamson, but it was an opportunity for some candidates who have struggled to get media attention, but who are serious candidates to well, and truly shine because my name, I d has been lower than a lot of the candidate I need to make sure that I get enough time and I needed to make sure that when I had that time that I've made the best use of it. That's my guest today. Houlihan Castro Fulmer housing secretary under Barack Obama full mayor of San Antonio, and the first Latino candidate to run for president. He was one of the breakout stars of the democratic debates this week, I'll speak to him about his clash with fellow Texas. Democrats better. Iraq on the debate stage on Wednesday night. I'll say to my colleague Ryan, Grim, the intercepts DC bureau chief, about the performances of Bernie Biden, Warren and the woman who undoubtedly stole the show last night. Senator Kamla Harris. On Wednesday night. There was only one real big hitter on the stage one top tier candidate. If you will Senator Elizabeth Warren, we need to make structural change in our government in our economy and our country. But lost its debate debate to had full big names on stage together for the first time. Now, I think it's fair to say that Senator coma, Harris dominated the debate and all of her nine rivals, she put them in check early on. Hey guys, you know what America does not want to witness a food fight? They wanna know how we're going to put food on their table. May p Buddha. Judge went after the Republicans and their hypocrisy for party that associates itself with Christianity to say that it is okay to suggest that God would condone putting children in cages has lost all claim to ever use religious language again. Senator Bernie Saunders reminded his of his progressive record. I helped lead the for the first time to utilize the War Powers to get the United States out of the Saudi led intervention in Yemen, which is the most prolific humanitarian and former vice president, Joe Biden reminded us of Barack Obama's progressive record. He's the first man to bring together the entire world, one hundred ninety six nations to commit to deal with climate change, immediately, so who won these two debates. Can you win debates in which there ca Jillian people on stage old trying to get in an able to argue with each other? Properly to talk more about this to discuss the ins and outs of these debates. I'm joined by my friend colleague Ryan Grim. The intercepts DC bureau chief, author of the new book. We've got people Ryan. Good evening. Good morning could not even know what time it is right now, doesn't matter does. It's like Vegas. We don't know windows could be. We just need the ebbing piped-in Ryan, if you were the proverbial Martian landing in Florida, turning up at these two debates and what she it in your hotel room on TV. You had no knowledge about any of these people. You don't know about Bernie Saunders and socialism, you don't know about Joe Biden in Iraq. You don't know anything about any of these candidates, and you watch these debates four hours, twenty people who'd you come away with saying is the best leader. Who do you come over saying is the person who will be Donald Trump? In twenty twenty probably warnin Harris, right? Yeah. They, they're the ones that appeared to be presidential. Because if you're a Martian coming in, you don't know that this species. Doesn't allow women to be president. Does Americans don't play. The American speed variety of the species. Yes. And, and I would also be very surprised to find out that they were competing for one position. And why, why do they have twenty people up on this up on this stage within five who didn't make the cut and why some of them so much better than some of the others? So that for me, not for me stood out more than anything else. It was almost like not to tears multiple tiers. Some of these people shouldn't be allowed to run for school board. And yet, they're on stage trying to be president nited states the Andrew Yang's. He's been on the show will put more about him Mariane Williamson the novelist did not deliver her best performance either. I don't know what her best performance is John Delaney. The former congressman who was there on night, one every time he spoke to stab my face with blunt spooned. They were there. We went we went able to see quote unquote, the big names, the serious candidates to grownups the at two qualified people do their thing. Although on night to the night, listening, t- took. Afterwards on the second night, we saw a real moment between two of the big hitters when Senator Kamla, Harris took all I think that's the phrase, vice president, former vice president, Joe Biden, so your race, I couldn't agree more that this is an issue that is still not being talked about truthfully. And honestly, I there is not a black man. I know Bahia relative of friend or coworker, who has not been the subject of some form of profiling or discrimination growing up my sister, and I had to deal with the neighbor who told us her parents couldn't play with us because she because we were black, and I will say, also that, that in this campaign. We've also heard, I'm going to now direct this at vice president Biden. I do not believe you are a racist. And I agree with you. When you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground, but I also believe and is personal. I was actually very it was hurtful. To hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing, and there was a little girl in California, who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day, and that little girl was me Ryan you on the edge of your seat. When that happened, I've got to admit I wasn't I'm no big Kamla Harris found. We've done a whole show on her brother dodgy record as a prosecutor in California. She was on fire tonight. It was good stuff. And you could tell something was about to happen when the moderator said, we'll okay, fine, we'll give you thirty seconds. She went from about two minutes and as you took a deep breath and burned through few seconds of it. They're like, oh, I don't think she plans on stopping. Thirty seconds. And then with the cadence, and with the pace and the emotion, you can tell okay, she's looking to create a moment here. She's she's, she's going somewhere with his oh, I see where she's going with this deal today that you were wrong to oppose busing in America. Then do you agree? I did not oppose busing in America. What I posed is bussing ordered by the department of education. That's what I opposed. Why did not have fancier of states to into knowing public schools, in America, I was part of the second class to integrate Berkeley, California, Public schools, almost two decades after Brown v board of education, because your city council made that decision it was that old government must have. Right. And the civil rights. Why we need to pass the quality act. That's what we need to pass the Yarra, because there are moments in history, with states, failed to preserve the civil rights of our people. Is it amazing to hear Joe Biden, basically, man's planning and white? S- planing bussing and segregation to a black woman. It's twenty nineteen and somebody running for the democratic nomination defended the right of local city councils to pursue segregation policies if they see fit Harris should I think she looks done? She. Right. You states rights, you expect. I was wrong and seventy s I was struggling to moderate, bussing and make it better, or, you know, but he went with I was against of education and state's rights that I was defense. She said, you know, in that's that's why you need the federal government to step in when states and local localities, don't protect civil rights like, and the look on her face while she was saying that it was like, do I really have to stand here and explain this to you in twenty nineteen states rights? There was a civil war fought on around the rhetoric of states rights, the entire rhetoric against the civil rights movement was state's rights. We're not racist, but it was twenty nine thousand nine hundred Bronco bama's vice president offers that up as a defense of his old full nineteen. Seventies bussing record. He was so bad politics. He was excited to listen at least he's bad up politics. And he was like, look. It's great that you went to. Integrated school, but your city council was okay with that. But they desk and then Lifan pointed this out on Twitter. It's the first time she's really aknowledged that she's from Berkeley, and not Oakland. The great catch by Lee. But he literally is saying that the only reason that desegregation was okay is because the Berkeley city council approved it just come out to calm and a Harris because the last time we talked about on the show, we were very negative about. So let's be positive. She clearly is someone who knows about debate. She knows how to speak. She knows how to argue. You said create a moment. What's interesting about creating a moment is lots of people trying to create moments but they were shifted it. Amy klobuchar had this really some line about foam and biz, she thought it was really funny. No one, loft it was really badly delivered. Eric swallow well tonight, talked about changing diapers and changing Washington, which from someone else might have been funny wasn't funny him. And she came along, and it was clearly a moment. Clearly should prep for it, but delivered it so naturally powerfully emotionally that kind of that little girl was me run. I teach debate workshops that kind of thing you say that is your moment that is where you walk away with this mic drop whatever you want. To call it. I think that one reason that the left kind of came for her as hard as it did, or, you know, earlier in the political season is because the left gets that she has a lot of raw political talent and charisma and combined with politics that don't agree with, with, with the left. That's, that's, that's a real threat. And so, you know, you saw you saw you saw them coming at her early in two thousand seventeen and, and then again, you know, more more recently, and after she faded, they, you know, the kind of target has moved to Joe Biden's back. But, but yes, like people have fading. Now, people have known that, that she has she has political skills, it hasn't translated well, because of the, the moment, you know, it's, it's that tonight felt real, but her her overall persona feels out of time it feels like that. She would be absolutely crushing it in two thousand eight and two thousand s. And the Obama titles being given to a lot of people to the bettas to the Buddha judges. She clearly is a bomb esque in terms of how backstory and her brilliance an but Obama was able to bring the left in with his community organizer thing left. He's getting very excited when they asked the question the moderate has lost who would give up their private insurance for government run program. I think she was the only who put one she I think she was alongside. But that's the thing that she's run on a fairly left wing platform, but she has this long record, as not just a prosecutor, but a law and order prosecutor, she's run a lot of campaigns from the right you know, there, she, she's run them in San Francisco, and in California. So the democratic base it just wants to beat Trump and you don't care about that kind of stuff, the details, right policy. The ideology, she clearly is someone in combat. Coming back to our proverbial Moshen you show you show that clip of Trump. And then you show she can we saw that in the cavenaugh hearings. She is very good at this stuff. And it helps when you're up against someone so bad as Joe Biden. It's amazing. More people didn't take shots. Joe Biden on night one. He wasn't that. So they didn't take shots and as much and they'll night to. He was there and Bernie shawna's didn't lay a glove on him. You know, the others Jill LeBron so much. Michael Bennett tried. I mean Michael Bennett what why are you on the stage? Some of these people I just come up to the multiple tiers of candidates. Isn't it really annoying that we can't see the people who actually might be president have a proper debate, because all these fringe characters have somehow managed to get sixty five thousand individual donors and poll one percent and thereby get on the safe. I mean twenty candidates over to come on Republicans faced this problem in two thousand sixteen and they did it right. They had a varsity debate within the top contenders. Then a kitty table, didn't the Democrats basically had a kitty table on Wednesday night. It was his with Warren, plus two kids and maybe Beto who probably makes the ended up being someone we're going to talk through. Join. And Elizabeth Warren on the top table as it were, but she was Lisbeth Warren, you know, her well, was she sitting at home tonight watching no sitting in a hotel room in Miami. What ching the debate wishing? She was there tonight, taking on Joe Biden's look, if she has history with Biden. I don't think so because I because there's, there's often a price to be paid, you know, for launching the attack both, you know both people go down. Now Harris is the way she delivered. It just asking him a question. But are you still for segregation, right? Kid. Right. Who's gonna come home until the only person of color on the platform tonight. Right. You can't say is much would have been much harder for warrant to pull off an attack that wouldn't have also damaged her a little bit made her look like she was, you know, come, you know, coming at them in some type of an aggressive and maybe unfair way. What happened to Benny sounds a lot of listeners of this podcast, massive fans. Bernie, I'm a great sympathizer with bunnies platform in politics. But he was kind of hit and miss tonight. I think one. The problem. Bernie has is his own consistency. He he's been delivering the same message for thirty years. And that's what people absolutely love about the guy and it's a good and as a popular message. And there have been innovations to it free. College has been coupled with with student loan forgiveness, but he has his moves and once you've seen those moves over and over it's, it's difficult for him to have that, that kind of moment. He also has never going to kind of rehearse a touching moment in the way they're gonna attack line or remember, when you know, when, when they offered him the chumps in two thousand sixteen to go after Hillary on our emails, and he said, no, no, we've had enough about your emails, and, yeah, I can't see him, attacking bite and a colleague of his full mccully on the Senate floor of his in the same way that combine harvesters went out and did what he'll certainly hit him as he did on the war and on things that he's been wrong about he'll hit him on policy, but he's, he's not like a. Political knife, fighter in, in the way that some of these other candidates are and someone else who did very well tonight. Another form guest on this show may appeal. It was quite strong. See the difference between Pete Buddha. Judge Joe Biden is p Bush at knows that his record as mayor of south bend, Indiana, especially in relation to policing and black community to a very upset with him. There is gonna come up. He turns out, roughly little thin tick, moving personal seemingly, honest answer, Biden can do that when it came to bussing or Iraq. Judge again is solely. What have you think is politics, solid operator, right? He's, he's great at doing job interviews. He's, he's a hard worker and smart guys, study liquid these alachua. He's is articulate and you're right. He needed a day or two to come up with some moving thing to say to respond to his deplorable record, which also raises the question he's known he's going to do this for several years now probably since he was in high school. So then why don't you govern? Can you even say governs run your city, run your town in a way that doesn't shame you embarrass you when you rise to a? Class on you and I've been around politicians, two decades me in my case amazing how many of these people don't plan ahead. Even though they're ludicrously ambitious. They don't cover their asses. They don't get their ducks in a job. He didn't sold out all of his stuff with, with the Clarence Thomas hearings. Well, he's just lazy Buddha. Gioja iraq. He didn't come up with a clever line tonight. Who got it wrong on who to judge doesn't have that excuse. And so if you're a mayor south bend, and you're thinking, in your mind that your future president, and your black police chief comes to you, and says, I have secretly recorded racists, on the police department, we need to we need to root them out because this is systemic problem. You don't fire the police chief that if you to. It's wrong to do it period setting that aside, if you want to be president win a democratic nomination hood him. So it has it has. I think this is wounded him. And I think he's after tonight's debate where he's getting lots of love off to calmly. He's seen as kind of the number two person. I think I think the entire thing is made it virtually impossible for him to break out of his kind of professional managerial class bubble that he's in what I found. So interesting about the two nights. Is that the five kind of main contenders? According to the polls Biden Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, common hires. Pete buddha. Judge will the five who stood out right? More than any others apult from I'm gonna throw this in here. Hulan Castro former housing secretary under Barack Obama. Former mayor San Antonio, Texas, brother, to a member of congress Joaquin Custer who's been on this show. He's running for president didn't have much name recognition wasn't polling very high. And in the first debate. He started trending because he starts talking about immigration starts, talking about his very ambitious bold plan to decriminalize illegal border crossings, and he gets into a spot with the once golden boy from his state better Iraq, the reason that they're separating these little children from their families. Is that they're using section thirteen twenty five of that act which criminalizes coming across the border to incarcerate the, the parents, and then separate them some of us on this stage have called to end that section to terminate it some congressman or Rourke, have not what you're looking at just one small part of this. I'm talking about a comprehensive rewrite of our immigration. And if you do that. It's actually not talking about laws on the zillions of folks, a lot of folks that are coming are not seeking asylum, and a lot of them are undocumented immigrants. Right. And you said recently that the reason you didn't want to repeal section thirteen twenty-five was because you were concerned about human trafficking and, and drug trafficking. But let me tell you what section eighteen title eighteen of the US code title, Twenty-one entitled twenty two already cover. If you did your homework on this. This was the moment where Julio Castro. And did better rooks, presidential bid? Probably over already I suppose, he could have he could have had some breakout moment. And. Yeah. And and revived his his candidate wooden Spanish, but sure, but short of that, he, he had already ended the difference between Castro and the other clowns in the back seat of the car that, that you mentioned Delaney. And the others Hickenlooper. I said, I want to bring in governor Hickenlooper. I just wanted to scream at the TV. No, don't bring. Oh, why would you why do you want to bring in? Nobody believes that you want to bring them in. Gotcha. If any sort of the diff, the difference, is that he has been a national figure at least in elite circles. He's been bandied about as vice president, and, you know, years past and people have always seen him as on a glide path toward toward a White House run. You know, they saw his move from congress to or his as his move to administration from you from the mayor of San anton- right from that perspective that, okay? Now he's, he's backstory. His grandmother came to the US from Mexico. His mother was a civil rights organiz a head. His brother of both go to kind of national attention. I was gonna do HUD is going to have an administrative posts. He's, he's building the resume. But then the politics move past him in the same way that they move past Harris. And so he also has done a lot of gymnastics ideologically right guy for the wrong ear. Right. Right. So he's got to move but on immigration. Certainly he's moved to not just to the left, but he's. Taken a very, very bowl stunt which even the likes of Elizabeth, Warren recently, followed him in taking this position where you say, let decriminalize border crossings. Let's not treat people who enter the country without the right papers, as criminals civilizations, fine. Not put them in court and put them in prison, a bold move. He got along a love on Wednesday night. He took on not just better a role, but Donald Trump, which a lot of people want to see taking on one thing that bothered me Ryan is that you have this white, nationalist, in the White House, not many Democrats want it took about white nationalism or fascism, will the rise of Nazism will people shooting up synagogues may make you pull out of modern America. Just we breached pasta over two nights. Yeah, I, I guess, the, the thinking is that there isn't a lot of gain to be had there since all of the Democrats agree on that point. And that's the other problem with having ten people on a stage is that you're only gonna get a short amount of time so you need to distinguish yourself. And if you and if you don't distinguish yourself and you just say things that everybody else agrees with and has said before, then people criticize you for wasting your time and be that so well. Well, one person who didn't waste his time, as I mentioned, was Hulan Castro, who is an ex prime example of how these debates can really turn around political foot tunes, most people would not talk about him a few days ago. Now they all and Julia and Castro joins me now. Hulan costra. Thank you for joining me on deconstructed. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. I did you, did you think you were going to do this going? Let's be honest right at the beginning. Did you think you'd be trending on Wednesday night after the first debate? Well, I hope that I would. But now I think. You know what I dot to the debate what I was thinking, was that I need to make sure because my name, I d has been lower than a lot of these candidates that the mainstream media has been focused on I need to ensure that I get enough time. And that's you know that's not something that's guaranteed at all. When you have other candidates on stage and I needed to make sure that when I had that time but I made the best use of it. I knew that the issue of immigration was gonna come up. And so I wanted to make sure that I was especially on about that issue. And that's what happened yesterday. And to be to you've been on that issue for a while now even before well before these debates came in on well before this week the border crisis blew up again. You pushing this issue of decriminalizing illegal border, crossings you talked last night, about repealing section one three to five and you went off to Beto Roque, specifically on that issue. Explain to our listeners who may be following the debate that close, you may have missed the debate. Why is it so important? To repeal section one three to five. And why did you go off the Beto on that issue? One of the most cruel policies that this Trump administration has put in place repository of separating little children from their parents. When migrants come over as families across the border, the reason that they can do that is because section thirteen twenty five of the immigration 'nationality act makes it a crime to cross the border. What I've argued is that we should make that a civil offense not criminal one. And for the longest time from, you know, the about nineteen twenty nine till the early two thousands, even though that section of the long was in place. We used to treat it as a civil offence. Not a criminal offense. I say that we need to go back to treating a civil fence so that we guarantee that, that no future administration will engage in cruel. Family separation, and the difference between my immigration plan and congressman auroras is the I call for the repeal of section thirteen twenty five. And his dozen I made the point that Senator warned Senator Booker governor Inslee and others have joined my call to repeal that section because that's the only way to guarantee that we're going to end family separation. And I challenged everybody else to do that. And by my count in tonight's debate, the second debate with speaking shortly after it, the majority of people on stage raise their hands and agreed with you that, that should be the position. So clearly leading opinion in your policy on this, and I'm glad you all, but what do you say to people say, well, you know, Democrats are going to be painted as open boulders Trump is already calling you open borders. What's your response to that kind of worried defensive posture from so many of your colleagues? Donald trump. Is gonna call Democrats open borders, say there for them voters. No matter what. Yep. He's going to say that we wanna let anybody and nobody's talking about open borders. I have pointed out on numerous occasions that we have six hundred sixty four miles of fencing along the southern southern border. We have thousands of personnel down there. There are planes, their helicopter there boats. There are security cameras states like Texas dedicate, eight hundred million dollars of state money could border security, so, you know, there's no way that anybody can call that an open border, but we're talking about is the difference between treating somebody who crosses that border giving them a misdemeanor or treating it as a civil offence. And there's still a court process. They still have to appear in a hearing but you can't separate them from. Their little children. I want to end family separation. And a lot of people saying, well, you're from Texas Beddoe wrote from Texas, the Democrats he to win the Senate as well. Not just the presidency. Joan coon. The Republican senators, there is, is, is is in a weaker position some say while one of you to run against him. I assume you think Beto rug should pull out and run against John Cornyn. So you can stay in and try and be president. Well, like I supported Johnson Warrick when he ran against Senator take crews. And of course, I would be happy to do support him against John Cornyn. We also do have a strong candidate MJ Hagar, who has stepped up and said, but she's going to run as a democrat against John Cornyn. Many. My experience is as Beryl executive, I served in you bombed administration. Here's a cabinet member. I have a track record as an executive and the president is an executive position. So I'm running for an office. That's consistent with my experience. What does that Trent record comes to bite you in the office because, you know, a bomb got a lot of things wrong? I know he's very popular with Democrats, but just in tonight's debate Joe Biden was asked about his poetry and chief record. You're big on this kind of immigration reform policy. And yet Brooke of the president, you served is cabinet to pull it. I think three million people, those kind of things, do you think they needs to be a reckoning with the Obama record people like yourself? If you're going to go forward and beat Trump in two twenty twenty. I'd said very clearly that I think would happen in Uganda administration is that if you look at the beginning of two thousand nine versus the end of it in twenty sixteen that the administration did get better on the issue of immigration. I think especially of Dhaka, and adopt a an implementing the family case management program, which said instead of detaining people, you know, detaining families, we're going to go ahead and allow them to to, you know, not detained and instead, keep in touch with them, and make sure that they meet their quarter, parents and was a very successful program. So I do think that there was improvement. I've also made it clear and people can check the record that, you know, I criticized the Obama administration on immigration when I disagreed with it, and, you know, I'm criticizing the Trump administration, and I have my own plan on immigration from what I would do to fix a broken system, and make sure that we treat people. With compassion, instead of cruelty. I know you've gotta run. You had a clash with Beto role that kind of dominated the debate on Wednesday night. Tonight's debate there was this massive clash between commun- Harrison, Joe Biden, none of us were on the edge of what did you make of it? Did you think won the debate tonight as most people seem to think I think she did very well. I think she helped herself tonight believe that I helped myself last night and a for a similar reason, which is that, you know, when you go out there, people wanna know look who's going to be able to go in there, to-to-to and stand up against Donald Trump, what they saw for me last night, was that I can handle myself I go into that situation and you know deliver my message and win the voters over, and that's what they saw, I think some common tonight lost question, based on that exchange between Kamla and Biden, which was about his rather. Dull g record on segregation and busing. Who would you rather have on your ticket alongside you Joe Biden? Kamla harris. Are you on right now? I'm focused on winning the domination. And so if I had my druthers I would actually have my twin brother as my running thing, it'd be to who which one's which obviously, when it came to the inauguration, but serious question I'm not substantial disagreement between Biden and Harris which side you come down. It was valid criticism of Biden by Harris. I think what do you think on the issue of busing? Yeah. And his record no legitimate issue to bring up. Everybody's going to have to answer for their record. Yeah. And, you know, when you've been he in politics for over forty years, there are gonna be issues that are recent ones they're also issues from some, some time ago that you're going to have to explain I do think that he offers an explanation. And I do think that he pointed out some ways that he's been a champion for civil rights over the years. But there are clearly some positions that he took that will give Democrats. Pause who then Custer? Thank you. You so much for taking time out to speak with us. Hope we speak to again for bit more longer. Go get some sleep. I guess. All right. Thanks a lot. That was Hulan Castro former housing secretary under Barack Obama presidential candidate, one of the people who is widely considered to have quote unquote won the debates this week, if you can win these kind of debates Ryan said to me, very openly. Then he turned up at the debate knowing he didn't have as much name recognition as others on that stage including Beto, but used his time to advantage. What amazes me is the number of people who've wasted their time who just made bland Ramaz. I, I really do wonder how some of these people like the Michael Bennett of this world figure out the fact that he's running for president. How is he a United States, Senator? I mean he's deeply unimpressive. And then you see people at under young who's been on this show before he came on this show. Impressed of our listeners by took his remember you message me saying you impressed with him with this freedom dividend his universal basic income, a radical idea supported by a lot of economists. And yet, when he's asked about it tonight he kinda threw away his sixty seconds, we need to put the American. In addition to benefit from all these innovations and other parts of the economy. And if we had a value added tax, even half the European level. It would generate over eight hundred billion in new revenue. Imagine being someone under Yang or Amari end Williamson, who manages, these people are no, but no one's ever heard of them until a few months ago until tonight. In fact, they managed to get on the debate. This is a big deal. Right. Not many human beings to be in that position, president of state's democratic debate twenty people millions of people watching, and you get this time. And you just throw away, I would suspect that Yang was pretty nervous. Yeah. That's when you know, he's pretty regular guy who just is now on the debate stage sending the former vice president at state does. Yeah. His he, he had the courage not to wear a tie. Yeah. I think he just nerves got a hold of him. I don't think Marianne Williams was necessarily I've, I've heard her talk. She's much better in long form like her ideas. Don't work in thirty seconds is talking about Love's gonna beat hate like you need a good five ten minutes to fly. We're being I'm being unfair to people are not professional politicians. What about the professional politicians, many of whom gave closing statements, which, you know, my daughter in elementary school, if she was preparing for class presentation, or I would say that's bad. You got to improve you gotta practice more. You're going to have some originality, and as I say, only a handful of those. That's why common-law Harris wall so strong tonight, because relatively there was so much mediocrity on stage and on the stage the night before. Right. And she only had to shine a couple of times because everybody else is taking up all the time. And right. She's just so obviously, superior to, to a lot of those also rans that, that really does come through. And then you're kind of biased in how, you're viewing it because or I am at least when I would see somebody like, John Delaney to even when I agreed with everything. And he was saying, I was so mad just using my time where I could hear Beto Houlihan caster have another robot immigration late. It's like pass by bedtime. Warren. In life is far too short for me to listen to anything. John Laney has to Italy's people down. But they don't get whittled down Yang's already qualified for the next set of debate, a lot of the others won't, though. Yeah, we just need to get it down. We just need to be an Warren needs to be on the same stages, Biden and common Harris and Bernie's. We can have a proper look a who the potential people. I'm amazed. The Biden is the front runner. I'm amazed that he probably stay the front runner, still now seem refu- weeks, unless something boost will Bernie does. But what's interesting is that every opportunity tonight. So Zach our producer of this podcast. And I would know biases we went through the debate trying to find a good clip of Biden's wounded have old, a big hit as have good strong clips couldn't find any bite tonight. There was no moment tonight where he just knocked out of the park and the crowd cheered night for the former democratic vice president to Barack Obama that for me is amazing amazing, couldn't produce one moment. Yeah, I was wondering if he was going to be able to, you know, string coherent sentences together because that's been. Knock on him that that he's slipping. He's old people old as well, but differently, you're right. Trump's old and bright and Trump can't string. He didn't send his vice presidential days. Yet, does doesn't look as I don't know people are going to be being ages tip. But it did he did come across as, if he wasn't ready for this stuff. He hadn't prepared. And I think we should end this conversation by giving the lost would to Joe Biden. Time's up on south it may well be Joe. It may well be. Brian. Thanks for. Joining me to talk about this craziness. There'll be many, many more debates ahead. We hope with fewer candidates can't wait. I can. But thank you for joining me at this late hour to help us deconstruct all of this. That's our show.

Hi Guys I'm Emma and I'm Julie and we're the girls behind comments by slips and welcome back. I feel it. We haven't had a regular episode just you and I in a while. I love it. It was last year. We really missed you so much. I was saying to my dad. I was like oh so happy. It's just me he's like you know like I guess I was like I love having I just love when I just yeah I just missed you. We were away from each other. We can wish we always are but like I wasn't really on my phone which typically I'm on twenty four or seven. If you notice we posted a little less than normal and we get to talk about all of these things didn't even talk about any of this. We haven't spoken about any. This is literally our first time talking about it so I also just wanted to say that will two things number one. We did a deep jive bonus episode on Kanye West for our crashing bonus show that was yesterday so definitely give that a listen. If you have any interest and second we're getting a lot of feedback from our Patriot members that they wanted some sort of like visual guide because they like to talk about the episode. After so we did was Isabel Nami as well on on our intern need a full visual guide for what we're talking about so if you're unpatriotic we're GonNa put that later and you'll have that as we go along thinks as well. Thank you as about on the floor the corner okay. Let's start off. There's a lot to talk about today. I know you're really excited for this episode. I don't know why just feel a lot. I think it's just a it's the two of US I think though too okay I wanNA talk about is Scarlett Johansson. If anybody's confused let me explain to you what happened so she received a lot of backlash for comments that she made during an interview when she was asked about political correctness and casting she said you know as an actor I should be allowed to play any person or any tree or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of the job what this was referring to was last year. She was such a play a transgender man in the film rubbing tug and she later step down from the role after receiving backlash saying like why is assist woman playing a transgender man cracked so interesting just for background and I'm going to tell you what she responded trevor. Noah spoke about this last year after after Bryan Cranston got backlash playing a paraplegic in his movie with Kevin Hart the Upside so trevor was saying was that you know his first reaction to seeing criticism online was that they didn't get someone who's actually disabled for the role was that he thought that everyone was taking things too far saying that the whole point of acting you know what's the point of acting if everyone just played the thing that they are. That's not acting. It's a documentary. What's interesting was that an actor who's in a wheelchair came out online and said I understand what an actor is? I'm an actor in a wheelchair and I never see leading parts for actors in wheelchairs so the one time I see a role where there is a person wheelchair. I think wow this could be it. I finally have all the tools to play this part. This could be my chance because on the reverse I can't be called into plane able bodied role in a movie to be honest with you. I'm going to say what Joe Hansen taught in a second and maybe this is like naive of me but it didn't really fully click for me until I read that quote well. I think that's what trump and the Trevor Noah club when he's talking about is he's kind of joking about it and he's like he's like if everyone unplayed what they are. Then like what's the point of acting the whole point of acting is to play something and I think that a lot of people when they think when they hear these situations. That's there if you wanted to. It's like yeah of course they're not going to play what they are and you can't get everybody to play with. They are but the whole point of it that was explaining by this actor. tweeting and terminal was saying that he just saw it in a tweet. It's not like he sat down at this actor to have it was like he saw it was really eye opening for him is that it's not just about like somebody playing something that they're not. That's normal. It's like would you have so few roles for so few specific people. It's like to to overlook somebody for that. Role is like they can't play something else. Scott Hanson can play this role this role this role this role but a person in who's maybe a transgender male isn't going to be cast in all of these different roles of the one time that there's a role for them. It's like almost a slap in the face to not give it to them because they don't have the other opportunities that other people do have no. It's spot on. I mean I just the Scarlett. Johansson always struck me as off from the Bryan. CRANSTON thing honestly didn't like when I saw the commercials for the upside I that was I'm just being honest. It wasn't my first thought process like wow. Why didn't they get someone that was actually disabled to play that and after reading that quoted just it hit me a little harder? I fully got it. I always had something but I got the Bryan Cranston and I think the Bryan Cranston thing is really mixed. I think there were people who were like. I think most of it was like yeah. They could have gotten somebody to do that and they could've taken that advantage. It wasn't as much like criticism like how dare you do this. It's like why not use that opportunity but I think what the Scarlett Johansson thing. It was like this is wrong. That was just a whole other and I think I think everyone kind of felt that way but it's really I mean it's really interesting when you think of the different roles in Hollywood in different roles that people have played and it's like you see this come up a lot where it's like <hes> for example. Call me by your name. People were upset that it was to straight males playing to gay males and a movie and it's like why couldn't you have cost people and on the reverse it's like they're playing playing apart. It's it's just part of legs. I think people have a lot of different opinions but the the argument of the actor made about being able to play certain roles is like I was very I open it was very eye-opening so Scarlett Johansson has since responded to the controversy and she says that her comments were quote quote edited for Click Bait and widely taken out of context which is what everybody says so Scarlett Variety. I personally feel that in an ideal world any actor should be able to play anybody in art in all forms should be immune to political correctness that is the point I was making albeit didn't come across that way. Listen I think she she <hes> and I'm not gonNA argue with her leg if she if that's the point that she was making that point he was making are just thinks she could have this is what I always get confused about. When people say you know my the things I was saying was taken out of context and it was used as Click Bait? It's like yes that's true but they also still came out of your mouth so if you don't want it to be said that way or if it's GonNa come across a certain way than just don't say it in the first place because her quote was confusing. You should be able to play any animals. I mean first of all. The Clinton itself was weird. We had like what you WANNA. Play a tree like. I think that's the way I understood her message but I think that the way she got her across wasn't vessels and she's not perfect but it was an interesting debate the kind of spark honestly the second they WanNa talk about was Miley Cyrus so miley cyrus just did a massive interview for L.. She said a lot of Shit. I feel like we should just go through. Some of the major things yeah anything yeah so one of the first thing she said was that she doesn't want to have kids because of global warming and I quote we're getting handed a piece of Shit Planet and I refused to hand that down to my child and feel it until I feel like my kid will live on an earth with fish in the water. I'm not bringing another person to deal with that. Recycling rates just went up by like seventy percents. Everyone's like my cyrus isn't reproducing holy fuck. Everyone recycle fucking medal shot yeah. No stress just became obsolete literally <hes> she also spoke about her marriage to Liam which obviously personally that's the part that I care about the most and she said I think it's very confusing to people that I married but my relationship is unique and I don't know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it's so complex and modern and knew that I don't think we're in a place where people would get it. I mean do people really think that I'm at home in fucking apron cooking dinner. I'm GonNa Hetero relationship but I still am very sexually attracted to women people become vegetarian for health reasons but bacon is still fucking good and I know that I meet a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most I I definitely don't fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don't even like that word in really interesting. Do you think that Miley is with other women while being with Liam or do you think it's like that's out of the question. I didn't from what I got from reading. This was not that I think what it was like. I am in a monogamous relationship with him but I'd be lying if I said that I'm not wildly attracted to women. That was my interpretation. I could be totally I mean I. I don't know it's it's interesting to think about I wouldn't I wouldn't be surprised fries if that was the case <hes> but no I think that the way she talks things really interesting. One of the things that you're saying in the article was like looking at her own parents as kind of a guide for marriage and she was like they didn't consider themselves husband and wife and this like very nineteen nineteen fifties role. It's like they were partners and she's like that's what I consider a museum. We're partners now. which is a really healthy way to look at it? I just it's always been a thing I mean I when Miley Cyrus came out that she was not just attracted to men. Nobody was surprised sized like it was I. I kind of always figured that I just think everything about her is kind of fluid and I love that she's so open to celebrating like every aspect of herself. You know what I mean right like. She's I don't mean to it. I think it's amazing and it's very it's very hurt and very indicative personnel also indicative native of in my opinion Liam's kind of I don't know if the word I want to use a self confidence but like his ability to feel comfortable within himself and within his relationship he's not intimidated by her being so public about that although she they are very private about their like intimate relationship which can respect I mean I wish they weren't but I get it but I think it takes a certain kind of person to be able to you know have their have their partner openly talking about being attracted to so many different people and I and I love it <hes> she was asked did you. Ever feel like you just wanted to break out of the Hannah Montana mode while you're doing the show and she says and she responded I did once I was eighteen because it felt ridiculous. The minute I had sex I was kind of like I can't put the fucking wig on again. It got weird. That was interesting. I mean the tell me what you thought about the first thing I thought about when I when I saw that was like my whatever grade self watching Hannah Montana wondering if she was having this internal battle well it's so interesting because I feel like we started as we got older. It was like we were getting due to an age where we were growing with these stars and we were like you know becoming it was like when we started watching it was like we were young kids and then as we got older and as they got older it was more us being curious about them having sex and all of these things and they were dating and I remember watching I remember watching Hannah Montana. We're watching slave is that cody and I wonder if they're having sex like dizzy stars having sex as such a concept backed them especially as we were still young but it was like our first you know like introduction to it and it was like we were starting to win really well. We hear about this. I I accept like Disney. Channel Stars have sex and it was like the weirdest concept in mind was talking. She was doing a concert at Disneyworld and there was like this Peter Pan Character dressed up like behind stage smoking a cigarette and she's like that's me she's like I am a Disney star. Having sex like I am ruining people's dreamed fees. I'm supposed to be this like innocent little girl like with a wig on and she's like it's just not meeting more and I thought that was so interesting. It is so interesting and I can only imagine what she was feeling in the moment. It's like an internal struggle. This is her source of revenue. This is the persona that she has to the world but then she has her real life. You know what I mean. She was saying that like I think mm for while she was not ashamed to be a little bit embarrassed while playing Hannah Montana and like the role of being a child star and Star for children but then she was saying she was like but now I listened that Cardi B.'s talking about like how much she loved watching Hannah Montana and it made me feel more secure secure in having had that role. I don't know the whole Disney Channel Star thing is so interesting to me and I wonder if there's ever a way where Disney channel can make it were actors and actresses can be stars for children but not feel so entrapped in this Disney mindset mindset because we see it so often where Disney stars are like <hes> suffocated like I'm suffocated by the fact that I have to be this perfect role model all the time and I wonder if we can ever get to a point with Disney stars where they can still be good role models but not feel so suffocated by like the the expectation of I completely agree and then you hear a lot of times oh they went off the rails and it's like did they or were they just living their life that was just such a stark contrast to the life that they had to portray. You know what I mean. When I think it's like is like when you go to college and people always say it's the the kids at school that were so had such strict parents that they were never allowed to do anything and they have their first taste of alcohol and they go a little crazy because they were never? I think that's what happens with a lot of Disney stars where it's like they never had this freedom and all of a sudden they're allowed and they and they kind I don't know what to do with it and they'd go you know a little off and then like usually find their way back and it's just so interesting because we see so often with these Disney stars and Iran miley Cyrus went through her thing where she was remember the video for smoking the Bong when she likes to talk about which was the craziest thing in the world and her going the whole wrecking ball phase where it was like Oh my God she's off the defendants like no. She's just getting her first taste that like being able to be freedom. Maybe he's pushing it a little farther than she needs to but like it's her first time being able to ever really they do that. Yeah no totally I mean it's just the contrast between the two. That's what I'm saying and there's such a ridiculous expectation that I think it's so freeing I can only imagine the amount of liberation that she and anyone in her situation feels what's interesting. Though is that was so many other Disney stars. We don't get to see their trajectory. Sorry because I look at Mitchel. Musso I'm not saying he's up to anything but he's not a Miley Cyrus. He's not a Demi Levato yeah when we get to really see them into adulthood. I think that to me is the most fascinating Bella Thorne I always use that example which for those of you that care about her as much as I do. I listened to the impulsive podcast. I'm going to talk about and a but but you see that and see how it carries out on when they talk about. It's like Oh my God. I was dying to get into your brain. When I was a kid right? No my God totally always say that <hes> like Hilary Duff is one of the few that never went through a phase like it was just she was the Disney star and then she grew up and they kind of state route or selfish. I always thought was so interesting yeah. I don't know <hes> but definitely that article. If you have any interest in Miley it was it was it was a good read. The next thing was so J.lo's on her. It's my party tour and she was thirty minutes in her show at Madison Square where garden this weekend and she had to cancel due to the blackout in the city so Madison Square Garden went completely dark everyone inside to evacuate with their no working escalators. No working elevators no lights. I was in the Hamptons. I didn't experience it but I only fuck imagine but also imagine how terrifying that must be because when you're in a concert it's like for someone when you're outside and you're in the city or you're in your apartment and it goes. It's like okay. It's a blackout when you're in a venue of you know a couple of ten thousand people. It's like an all of a sudden. It just goes black that doesn't I imagine how scary that must be being inside like assume something's going on. You have no way of knowing until you check your phone like it's just the blackout yeah but also in today's Day and age look look at Manchester. Look at all of these things even though that's what I'm saying like even in a movie theater I turn around now because I'm assuming the worst exactly what I'm GonNa the movie theater please. I check literally every single person that walks in. It's it's so like not ingrained in our minds to do it. It's just like a force of habit now where I'm like assume the worst case scenario so I like constantly looking at exit during the movie and it's really so sad more yeah we didn't we didn't do that when we were little. We have our did our parents. It's not like a thing that happens when you get older that you start expecting somebody to come into a movie theater and do something. It's just this day and age the age. That's what I'm saying like. I think that if I was a kid at a Jaylo concert it was so scary 'cause it was dark but my mind wouldn't go to where it would go now. That's saying okay moving on to Serena Williams so as you guys know she lost in Wimbledon in the finals and she made comments in response to a female reporter that had previously published opinions that like Serena should it and I quote stopping a celebrity for a year start and stop fighting for equality and just focus on tennis and she says the day I sought fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the damn in my grave fuck yeah this this reminds me of what Lebron shut up and dribble Yup and he was the same thing. It's so disgusting I I stop illusory that quote wartime stopping celebrity for a year and stop fighting for equality and just focus on the tennis like number one is if the two can't go hand in hand you can't be focused on tennis and also focused Gazon equality in the cost that you're out like the first round. She got out in the finals. It's like it's so ridiculous. It's I don't know it's it's beyond me also. I don't think they have anything to do with each other. There's no way if anything I think it makes her a better tennis tennis-player. That's what I'm saying you think of the to go so hand better. She's a tennis the more star power she had like the two are just so. It's more of a platform. I don't know Serena. Williams is like on one recently in the best possible. She was on the cover of Harper's rate in that goal God. She looked amazing she just amazing she exudes power and just think and also her mutually follow her relationship really closely with Alexa Han he. That's your dude. He made read it. I know that you're dude. I can't wait for the inbox for those of you. Who listen to the vile so do you got that reference to send Alexis? Thank you know the only ones leasing zinke realms Goddamn community God anyway <hes> we follow them very closely because we're just obsessed with them and their daughter and you know I never Serena was always a great woman before him. You know potentially after him whatever but there's something about their relationship that I just think makes both of them. That are people like when you think Oh what what makes a good partner. It's like you want someone who brings out the best in you to me. They bring out the best in each other. I know I have limited knowledge of them but it's like. I don't know they're so supportive in there so wanting to see each other thrive arrive will remember he got the billboards her after the movie three three billboards outside of Missouri or whatever came out he got like three billboards for her for mother's Day and it was the sweetest thing in the entire world also. Did you see that <hes> <hes> beyond says mom Tina Knowles had messed up and she wrote she posted a picture of Serena congrats on winning Wimbledon and everyone was like she said what she said like like if Mama Tina says she wanted Serena what it was how funny I didn't see the comments on the picture because she had changed the coughed until like like something about like so much respect for your next whatever but if you look at all the kind of she said what she said like if Mama Tina said it then that's what happened. That's so funny listen. Tina Lawson has one of the best grams and the game. We always say oh yeah yeah. Oh Yeah <hes> moving on to other relationship news God I hope this one stroke same so Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson they've been dating for a while now and the tour and central pay celebrating the Fourth of July ah over the weekend and they were pictured kissing and they both had on these gold rings on their left hands. So of course the speculation comes out that they're engage. Neither of them have confirmed the rumors but it's honestly not surprising since it took them how how many full year to confirm and I they were officially dating right. I don't know I don't have an opinion on it like I don't know if I think that they're engaged or not. I don't think I have enough knowledge but I fucking hope so yeah I just I really hope so. I think they are literally ethic together. I totally agree. I mean talk about a relationship like Allah Miley in that. We don't know a lot about I know. Nothing and I want to know everything I know. I wish they were more open. I wish we always talk with us. It's a struggle like on one hand. We want them to be open at the same time. It's like no savor your privacy yeah you know hard like as somebody who's because not everybody is us who so supportive of like first of all time even just like any couple. That's you know it's like everyone always has something to say. Not everyone's ass who was like we just WanNa see you happy but we want to know more so we can be even happier. Free Yeah like if everyone was like us the couples would be public all the time you tell us whatever you want to tell us and that's fine but we'd love to see as much as you're willing to give us. Everyone's like give us more. Give us more give us more and then judgy. It's it's an it's so funny when people are like you guys are just like that on the podcasts. I swear aware on everything. No we're not we literally sit by ourselves and just talk about how much we love. These couples like no one listening. I promise you it's not an APP so if you hear me off I I I hold back on the Vodkas but I talk about Haley and Justin. I literally have to hold back Axel. People don't think I'm crazy. We talked something so funny. I think it was I think it was in our patron group. Someone wrote like what's a celebrity couple that you're everybody's obsessive that you're just not that into and someone wrote like I'm kind of scared to say this because of Emma Julie but I don't really get the hailing justin thing. I can imagine like hearing that 'cause I understand why you're crazy like even my mom like I'll say to her and she's like why. Do you think that all of these well always says she's like. Why do you think these couples are no less? What in Hollywood relationship do you have that you're GONNA be like this high profile? Young couples going to really make it this time and I'm like I just I know they are every time we have that confidence which actually I didn't even write those on the outline but I want to say this. I was talking to Allie about it. Did you know what's going on with Bella and the weekend. Oh I don't know if anybody has any insight. Please let me know the reason I ask is because obviously they got back together like let's say I don't know a couple of months ago six months ago maybe they were posting constantly quiet right dead quiet. You know I forgot about them until you even said that although she he's definitely been quieter in general social media than she has. She's been very active but I am so curious if they're broken up or if that's just us being like hyper analytical I have no idea but if anybody knows let me know really interesting. I generally didn't even think about until you just brought that all right. Hey you forgot I i. I honestly forgot their dating off your radar.

You'll need okay now back to the show other relationship news so Ed Sheeran has confirmed confirmed that he was married now that we were really speculating that but it was cool to see comfort confirmation. He was gave a very candid interview to Charlemagne the God who I fucking love that guy from an interview perspective. I think he's excellent. Oh Yes oh my God yeah and he says and I quote I constantly wake up every day with Cherry and I'm just like why the fuck are you with me. You could literally be with whoever you want and you chose me. WHO WHO? What are those like? I'm trying to think of what celebrity has spoken well. I wasn't GonNa say what celebrity is spoken but will we always say is like there's no away that Maradas husband doesn't wake up every day and that Yeah Oh my God. There's no I mean listen. It's very Justin Haley where she he's like. I can't believe that we're together. It is that's why I was thinking of <hes> he also add also talked about Travis Scott and their new song together <hes> antisocial and he says that him and Travis have like a very similar relationship when it comes to social anxiety he says and I quote he has it and we were talking about. It and I think he's very lucky that he's with the girl that he's with. He says that they have a similar thing where they just have their little circle aw. I wonder if you know what's cool about that. It's like Travis probably also that where he wakes up every day and he was like Holy Fuck Yeah Oh absolutely and so does corey gamble yeah yeah so many of these people do but wait what is on the floor or you don't think who would want to wake Kris Jenner. I WANNA wake up next to Kris tschetter. Oh absolutely I never cheese right. I mean the fucking auto wake up to the boss of all bosses exactly but was interesting. It's like when and when did we ever think that we were GONNA get insight into Travis and Kylie's relationship via Ed Sheeran Nellie did ahead. You should do this more often on stuff like where the fuck where you and Kylie was pregnant. You know what I mean seriously okay so Ed Sheeran is our new celebrity correspondent for Kylie Travis so we'll talk to him about it but I think that that's Yeah No. It's an official title and there's no going back. I absolutely please spread the word okay moving on to Justin Bieber so billy Irish came on the scene. When would you say in the past year the efforts and she has <unk> fucking skyrocketed like this girl is really killing it deservingly fucking so and she has been Justin Bieber and I hate this word but stan for ever positive status Dan like she has been hardcore die hard fan her entire hire rooms covering Justin bieber posters and hurling dream was to meet Justin Bieber so they met for the first time at Coachella during Arianna grandees performance? I'm sure you saw those videos. She liked could not contain her excitement was the sweetest thing in the entire world. Justin knew about it like he was excited to excite her kind of so on Wednesday last Wednesday they came out with a remix to her song bad guy and the cover art is a picture of her when she was little in her bedroom like in his little readdress filled with Justin posters I could be wrong. I room okay but imagine having song with him. No I mean that's the thing that I never would because you've heard we say like I'm just saying I also I also had a pretty stupidly ridiculous if you've ever all that my mom heated and begged take down and I did it until like well into middle school. It was probably eighth grade before I took that off my wall. Oh my God if I even as little as thought about putting Scotch tape on my mall my Momma to fucking kill me yeah so I never had that but for her sake like when it came out and Julia was so surprised but how excited I was because I had I wasn't excited about the song goes against it gets on whatever I was so excited for how excited billy must have been like I can only imagine her sitting there. Like how the fuck is this my life I mean in the course of when was it April also now probably like in the course of five months he she went from being on Ellen and Ellen like saying how ex and telling Allen how excited she was that just an adviser on Instagram and Ellen being like I heard you WanNa meet him and her thinking that he was there surprising and she was like he's not here. He's not here then the next month meaning him at Coachella two now having a song within like that all of that in five months that is the craziest thing ever. It's the craziest thing ever know she's killing it and also the song is actually very good like and this is one of the reasons that I really like just-ended like I he did not have to do that. It's not just like He. He didn't do it genuinely. He didn't have to meet her didn't have to fall and he didn't have to make a song to a remix of her already song. It was just like he's so excited for her out of the goodness goodness of his heart of like wanting to do this with her. It was just like I thought it was really sweet. I think also she's what seventeen or so yes. She's young like. I think there's a part of him that an tell me if you're if you're with me these her himself on her well kind of I haven't fully thought out the idea happening to me as I'm speaking but like when when his fame really skyrocketed he was still so young and I'm not saying that she's not but I think that he can imagine like what it would be like if at seventeen what happened him at like thirteen was happening. It's a whole different kind of right and I think think that's exciting to him and like he wants to join in that I agree and I think that also you know when Justin was starting. He's saying for his audition with Scooter an usher song and scooter brought him to meet usher and it's kind of like you know. It's a pay it forward type thing exactly it's like here. I wasn't Asher Fan. He became my mentor. He helps me out so much early on he was doing music with me was doing all these things he's like. Why wouldn't I then help a new artist? WHO's coming on the scene who I can like pay it forward to essentially in literally really the least competitive comparable thing ever like? Please don't even think for quarter of a second. I'm comparing us to any of these people but it just an example in our own life. That just made me think of. Maybe I don't know six months ago. He got an email from this girl and she was like really like die. Hard Fan of the account loved the podcast and wanted to know if we were hiring. We weren't hiring at the time but we ended up having lunch with our like remember we met her and she was like so sweet and I said listen. We're not hiring but was hopefully keep you in mind two weeks ago. She started her own podcast and asked us to be the first guest and like again. Please do not think I'm comparing ourselves to be that was a perfect example of like Kelly. Were going on. Yes yes like we are by no means anywhere near Kelly. She was so excited about it and like we were so excited to like help her. I guess yeah totally next I want to talk about is Jason Momoa. This was the most bullshit story I've ever heard it honestly anger even to say it but whatever so this picture comes out of Jason Momoa shirtless and he is body shamed like yes. You heard me correctly fucking body Shane because. Apparently he doesn't have the same crazy ripped body that he had when he was doing man which thing God people immediately came to his defense and was like what the fuck are you. Are you guys literally kidding because they were saying they're like it's so unattainable. No idea how much work goes into having a body I mean here's a thing as we've been very vocal about like fuck body shaming on any level. Even if you really was so out of shape like it's still no one's place to common but if you're gonNA comment. Are you literally kidding this man members to ask because I think Jason Momoa my number one yeah because his body is so but it's not just about like the Ritz. It's like I feel like we almost like him. Better not like that. I was thrilled when I saw that I was like he's never been hotter. That really ripped vibe. I just think I don't know to me it comes across as very unattainable and Komo puts in so much effort whereas his stature he's probably would probably six four six five. He's probably six four like he's just hot again high. No we're talking about that with his face. <hes> Joe whose name I can't pronounce so if you have a guards husband Oh oh Joe Manganiello yeah he recently came into my five to because of that exact reason yeah yeah. I said that you feel like you. You're sleeping on Joe and you're like I totally am yeah. I mean I think also Jason Momoa came into our orbit recently like in our brains because of the picture of him and Lisa Bonet Zoe Kravitz his mom it's always wedding and I was like Julie fucking talk about a sexy we'd like to see like are you kidding. Oh my God and then I was just thinking like Oh my God what would he do. I remember you tax does I guess most seems like the type of guy that would fucking rally and then he would do you the exact opposite. He's like you think that he would fucking rarely do the exact opposite. I I hold true to that I don. I hold true to that. What do you think you would do? I don't even I feel like he's like so sweet. Like gentle really surprisingly gentle. I could see him being. I could see it both ways. I guess it depends on exactly yeah. He's very diverse. He's probably accommodating no but what I can. I tell you what I imagine I imagine with him. It's like amazing four play like he's care so much about the person that he's with and like we're delusional allusion all absolutely delusional talk with this for eighteen hours they can I finish my sorry. Sorry when we talk about the way the amount of GM's that we people being like I was thinking the same thing or like they had also philosophize us to his assist. Someone's like I only donated like actually named boxes high girls. I heard you talk on the podcasts at I just want to clarify a couple of things about the way Jason's like in Bet Julia one hundred percent correct. He's so sweet and so I think you're I think you're spot on now. I think with the four play he's like super gentle like mix to the point where you're like begging him and then when he like yeah he fucks you but not like cre- Nali can sanely okay. You don't think of that. How does every podcast ah of your what is wrong with us? Can I tell you what I'm when we Nick Violin last week and he was like we were talking about Sophian Joe and as like yeah you know shoveled of this picture of him in the bath and all I could think about is like their sex.

We always talk about this you know she wasn't she didn't grow up in British royalty like she came from an entertainment background in L._A.. Yeah and so it's not like beyonce as cool. No matter who you are I'm sure beyond so it's cool to Kate Middleton but really specifically being Meghan markle being in the entertainment industry like recognizing the magnitude that is beyond say and now you're meeting her and she's honored to me and only one of the two of them is the Queen and let me tell you when Meghan suits.

Some of these new celebs be trip in like you gotta bow down to them to rock but the highest level felt felt like friends forever honestly at beyond say thank you for being as kind as one would wish you to be chills fucking everywhere yeah and it's first of all everything anybody ever said about beyond say is that is like how kind and how sweet and how nice she hasn't how shocked everyone you meet somebody that is I when you're talking about a list celebrities. That's beyond say there truly. I really don't think there's anybody of the Brad Pitts the George Clooney's. I still don't think they're both beyond beyond say is beyond say it's an ex level and one of the things on twitter this this week was that beyond say was shooting somewhere and I think it was at the Grand Canyon like a very secluded I could be wrong about where the location was. Maybe at a national park or something and a headline came out that was like <hes> like people viewers upset or like Taurus upset is beyond say closes down like one section of this area to take like shoot something and all of the replies that article were not true. I was there and fiance couldn't have been kinder sweeter. She asked if we would be okay if we if she took some private pictures and then she would be able to take some pictures of US afterwards and it was like there there was probably one hundred to two hundred of them being like this article is so false I was there that this day could not have been sweeter or connor to us. It's like the free you have to redefine that that's true. He never heard a negative thing and honestly on an a totally different level. I'm not comparing airing the two but you've never you hear a lot of shit about crashing. Is You never and I always say that you always hear that. They're incredibly pleasant to work with and that they're incredibly nice to their fans because they recognize like these fans they built their empire basically and by the way if that was a lie you would know it because things come out all the time all those celebrities where you hear that like their hearts work whether you've heard a lot of things like they could be really good people but there are certain people that they're working with that like they. I guess like let them know that there is a different level. They're in. It's an it's those things. Always come out so true and heard about you've never never heard about the Kardashians. There's a lot of people that you really never heard about and I think that that shows the type personnel are and I think that helps like catapult you to the next level. I think that's a huge part of the reason why beyond says that the level she's ad is because everyone one is. She's so respected by everyone that it's like. No one has a bad word to say about her. You keep growing and growing and going to the next level because everyone wants to work with you. Serena Williams is the same way yes you hear them the most amazing thing about her yeah <hes> yeah I mean this. This like Ravens Simone was like the quote never meet your heroes and that but she did and they didn't sweat which was amazing I wanted to before we move onto the award ceremony. I didn't read this in the outline because it happened on my way here. I was listening this morning on my drive into the city to <hes> Bella Thorne on Logan Paul's podcast impulsive. I've never listened my life but a million people like wrote me like you have to listen and I just want to say I know I've been vocal about my kind of like interest in both on I'm kind of fascinated by her and she really did not display. No you didn't listen yet Julie but she's just I don't know whether or not you like her. I think that the level of vulnerability owner ability and and openness that she portrays it's really admirable. I don't know there's just something about it. That's really cool. She talked so candidly about like so many different things. She's promoting her new book which I haven't read. I honestly don't think that I will read to you know. I'm sure it's great. I just have other other things I'd rather read but you know she talked a lot about being abused up until I think she was fourteen and she's like listen. This person was with me in my dressing room like I would was on set and I would being sexually abused and just hearing the way she she talked about. It was was really unbelievable. I think it's it's really cool to be able to share her story in in one of the questions. He asked her was like you know <hes> do you. You never identified who the person was like. You've never said that them by name. Why is that and she was it was already so and don't quote me obviously interesting? She was like it was already so traumatic for me that to then think that people would know who he was and would be envisioning it in their own minds was like I couldn't I couldn't she just talked about a lot of different things about being herself and she grew up. They were basically homeless like her dad died. When she was ten? She had a stepfather and her and her mom's always had a kind of a rocky relationship and she said like when I got she's like listen. Ice was modeling for Vogue Italy when I was seven weeks old like I have always been in show business and she said that they did a K._f._C. Commercial and one of the things that she got was like so much frozen chicken and that's what they ate for such a long time and when she started to get bigger roles she's like you don't know how cool it was that we could go out to eat at the olive garden. She's like that was such a big deal. I don't know it was just really cool to take it back a second. No I think the thing Bella Thorne that I find is that I like her. So much. Better is just her like I find that I don't care but I've yet less interesting stories but it's like her relationship with Maud Center her things that she's tweeting or other things when she sits out and she's talking I am so much more interested in so impressed by her as a person as opposed to when she's hanging out with people that like have all of these cloud storylines like first of all. I loved Hannah like as much as the next guy but it's like when when Bella is with her it becomes a different storyline about Bella becomes about the two of them were Bella has amazing powerful story to tell and I think it gets they looted when she's with other people a lot of the time totally I completely agree so anyway that was just interesting and I I I was a fan okay lettuce transition to our award ceremony so full disclosure. We don't have a winner for clapback the we're like a couple of contenders but no one really like what what no one really wowed us yet. No stub your game. It's not our fault. I don't know no one really stuck out and we don't like to call something a clapback. That isn't the thing that I would I would say is the closest to a clapback was and I'm not even GonNa Award. I think we're going to do is just like wait to decide until we don't even upload this to our stories until Thursday. Yeah we'll see if something comes in but the one of Kylie Kylie posted a picture of her which will get into in the crash and we have obviously in in like in a hat or whatever and Turks and Keiko someone wrote. This photo looks awfully familiar familiar it was done by that girl was it yes it was yes and she responds from the words of Kim K.. You're not on my mood board but I do get my in so info off pinterest. Yes we will love that one. I don't know it just didn't we're honestly I think we're afraid to give the Kardashians like clapback of the week or funny because on the people that hate them things that we're doing it just because it's them get so not the case. We've never given it to them ever yeah. I don't no no I don't. I don't know I don't I should like how we don't post their comments. Unless it's amazing yeah you know it was common. I'll always post like always WANNA post. <hes> from the Kardashians is Chris like anytime she comment something. I'm like fucking up. Everyone loves Chris. Oh true but for funniest so there were two nominees the I was Nikki glaser so grape juice voices of this account of voted a picture of like the cats in the cradle. Is that what you call our Jacob's ladder Jacob's ladder <hes> like Leonard Game Guesses on uh-huh and wrote girls who did this and they were younger into bondage out and he glazer comments this checks out fucking funny fucking rock the Jacob's ladder yeah. I can't say that's true. It wasn't really my thing but I fought hard with so the second was Athar Ogan. He is this your car. Tomorrow I will fucking kill Seth Rogan picture of him in beyond say from the Lion King from your hero guys I did it and Nicole comments kind of low respite grow pony up the money for the getty image rights to this you deserve it. That was just funny. I Dunno coal is really fucking. He's underrated Lee really funny. He's really big and like the like the comedy community just like a unless you're really into stand up people don't pupil known as well but he's on big mouse. He's really good friends with John Laney and that whole crew it's also looking for Interpol share your into that kind of vibe really him and him and John Laney have the most amazing dynamic. I don't know if you've ever seen L.. Hello on Broadway. They have it on flex but they have these like two characters that they do that like these old guys and it is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life.

We talk about the crashing recap guys. There's so many things I don't even know where to start. Can we just start with Kylie skin. Please please Kylie fucking skin. Oh okay so Kylie makes the announcement that she is launching her summer collection for Kylie Skin and we're all like okay great like amazing packaging. Whatever I wasn't expecting anything crazy? I was expecting a really cool photo shoot yeah. That's what I was expecting but this girl Oh oh my God okay all of a sudden we highly story. She's walking to a private jet giant white plane with pink letters that say Kylie Skin Air. I'm like freaking out as I say it. It's her. I'm going to read the crew so it's her stocks tiffany Sophia Richie Irish Hammer Victoria Villarroel her assistant Dr Michel Amber Solly. WHO's a photographer and her makeup artist area? I could be missing someone blows in the people and obviously stormy is is with them Travis Cam and I think he had a show so we left but there was the picture of her getting off so play like holding stormy and Kissing Hemmitt arm around her yeah I know all of you saw this but I'm just going to explain it because I just love the imagery so it's all the all the stories are them this group of like let's say ten of them in these pink tide talentless outfits sweatshirt and sweatpants walking onto this gorgeous Kylie Skin plane which is clear. I don't think she bought the plane and I think she just she just however much rented it. Slash customize it you get on pink Silk Pillowcases Pink Silk. I'm acid say every fucking thing Kylie skin and we were losing our haven't freaked out this much of an about credential story since saint something with Saint I think like honestly right yeah. I think so too probably since probably since <hes> The Sunday service footage yes yeah I mean John even then because I was watching the whole thing people little yeah it was. It's unbelievable so then we're like Oh my God. How could it get crazier but obviously it does? They get a Turkson Keiko's and this house is insanity like even you know it's big when while Kylie's video and you hear background like wow this house and insane because they're in a way a little bit desensitized told me it was like Holy Fuck. Oh my God let me tell you something. Kylie is a mother fucking genius because the thing Kylie skin is like is it the greatest skin wear and the entire world like skin care in the entire world. No it's not lemaire. There's a lot of things that it can't compete with for one second when you're washing your face with Kylie skin. You're on that fucking plane going to Turkey and that's why she's a goddamn genius. They're marketing geniuses. They're posting. Counseling for the second they get there. There's coconut drinks waiting for them. You know with service opposite say Kylie Skin on all the coconuts on every single thing now so they even had customized welcome mats that said Kylie Skin every like it was in San also in methodist like I know you guys love that talentless Collab- obviously but also say and this is what I say that I love Kylie you say it. We're going to go to sell cigarettes. You bathing suit yes. It wasn't a that's. That's what I love. It's like it's like first of all Kylie's promoting her skin. That's one thing all L. Sheet. Do is promote her skin. It's her thing but she takes wrote talentless through that and Sophia's bathing suit line so if you just just to clarify sophia did a cab with Frankie's bikinis the founders Francesca yellow and it was he's really sick like almost like the titans with these were the ones that's Afia was doing the Promo for in the consent in the gas station like when she was in the mini mart those are the basic bathing suits. They're wearing on the trip. Yes you're so right. She had Kylie did not have to give Sophia any airtime time from a from a brand perspective no she didn't it's like I just I love that about. I think the whole family does a really good job of that all the merchandise for the birthday parties Tom List. It's there's no better more organic way to promote it and it's like if you've seen the videos of Scott from keep up the Kardashians what he was doing it. It's not like he's asking for it. It's not like you saying. Can you please do this or please. Help me promote this. It's like we WANNA see every member of our family succeed. It's so true and listen. I understand yes of course it's coming from like also a monetary protective. nachos opted out of the goodness of their hearts. I'm sure they get some sort of commission but who the fuck cares they have the platform. I wouldn't be surprised at all of Kylie wasn't getting anything from no holiday from talentless but I'm saying I'm sure from the <hes> chloe's birthday sweaters. Maybe she got a whatever it isn't either way just so cool and like this trip. It was truly truly unfunny believable like this one really fucking books amber who I wasn't so familiar with she is I looked her up because she kylie kept tagging her. She's a fashion photographer. That's kind of where she became where she got her like reputation from an hurt. The photographs is an amazing just like literally an hour before this she was Kylie was posting. Oh my God her in the tide. I blew Chanel bathing suit with the chains everywhere. I mean it's just insane. It's just insane. The question that everybody got ask us is like Kylie's Kylie's posting all that with stocks and they're doing these quote twin picks and people are like what are you think like Jordan this that listen. I think their relationship with Saas is different than Jordan because I don't think that it's as codependent Kylie we saw some of the trailers for for next season's keeping A. and Kylie said she almost felt like with Jordan had to happen in a way because they were just too intertwined and they needed to be their own people. I don't foresee that happening with stops. She doesn't live with her. She definitely has I feel like much more of her own kind of circle. Is that fair to say I yeah I mean listen. It's not like I think people have this view. That Kylie went out picked up random new friend it was like you're the new Jordan welcome to the group. It's like her instead of always been best friends. They've always been navy not this this close but they've always been very close and I think this kind of power female friendship has always been there for Kylie and always been kind of a necessity in her life and it makes sense if she doesn't have Jordan anymore which is it's not like. She went and kicked out. Jordan was like goodbye. You did nothing wrong. I'm just over you. It was like something happened in Jordan camp you part of this anymore and I think it's natural for colleague. Want somebody to take that spot as the best friend. I think we would all feel really lost if we lost our best friend and didn't have anybody in that spot anymore absolutely. I just think that people think that like like you said. Sasha's came at a Lafayette she didn't they've been friends for a very long time time. Maybe it wasn't as documented yeah. I don't know I think if you were paying attention. It was documented does not as much yeah but also it's like the relationship that you had with Jordan. She's right. It was kind of unrealistic. There were there were living into. They're doing everything together on Kylie was saying that like it kept her from doing a lot of things because she had the security blanket. It's like I don't need to go out and meet New People. I don't need to go out and do this. I don't talk to anybody because I've I've Jordan and now I think it's like I have stars and I have all of these other girls that are with me and I have my crew but I don't feel that need to you know stay inside all the time and do nothing because I have Jordan. It's like now I'm getting out there and doing all of these things and many it didn't need to happen yeah. I struggle with that because it's like I I. I don't know I I understand what everybody's saying. It's still breaks my heart. It's like did it have to happen in that way to have to be so. I don't think anybody wanted to toughen in that way but I okay. This is what I can say about it if it if it was going to happen maybe there was a bigger reason. You know what I think think. I think that I think that for Jordan also I'm not like me like it's not just Kylie. I think highly was saying that also in the preview. It's not just like she's the only one that needed to get out and do our own thing. It was like Jordan was under her shadow. Then Jordan needs to get out and look towards looking thriving so maybe for Jordan sake she also needed this tavern and they needed to have this kind of break up to go out and do their own thing and maybe one day they'll figure out how to be friends again. Yeah it's so true I mean literally think about your most codependent relationship like even like me and you aren't even close to Jordan and Kylie where they can't. They couldn't spend one second apart. It's not it's it's not the healthiest thing always when you have that especially when you're with you have a child and a boyfriend baby daddy almost husband like it's not that healthy to have somebody else that you're that codependent on in addition to that. No you're right IT'S I. I don't know I'm still struggling with it but I I agree. I still how we all struggle the but it's the point of like finding a silver lining in what's already been done no and you're spot on. I agree with every single thing you're saying unlike unlike the optimism he totally believes that I really am not just saying that I guess I just I still feel like there's a lot of unresolved heartbreak in that's that's what I'm saying is that I think that after a while I'm doing their own thing they'll be able to find their way back to each other. I think you're right <HES>. Let's talk about Penelope Seventh Birthday Party Cardi Fleas Dear God. Yes Oh my God so they have penelope's birthday party. It's all pajamas at ihop which like texting she's like. How rich do you have to be like going? I opposite treat like fucking in and they were I've never seen people happier their whole life Ted video of them sitting at the table and putting makeup on true and when they open up penalties bag and it's like all Kylie Lipkin all Kim's lifts it was so cute they're like putting on futures like eating it and close. He's like okay. Maybe this isn't the best idea like she's literally. Just looking at doesn't know what lipstick was so funny first of all they had the white limo which if you remember from a couple episodes back north whole things like she wants a white Unicorn Limo so finally she got wasn't uniform and it was like a joke and I think she got a white concordia is. I don't know what a Unicorn Limo is. I don't know I have some thoughts in my head that it's like skittles everywhere or something you know what I mean like very fuck on but anyway they have is white limo and Kim. They like their industries. Were them getting out and you see north. She is so happy to be alive live like she said. I can't believe I mean this. I could see her face. She was smiling thing Norris happy to be alive. Penelope got to have non gluten free pancakes Holy Fuck holy is right yeah and they get there of course they brought like gorgeous flower arrangements to because yeah would definitely some ever let them have a birthday party at up and not have flowers not mindy fuck and help plan every person's GonNa have their birthday I have because now it's a tree. Exactly what do you WanNa do for your birthday. I need to have that I have yeah we were fucking Diop's neutral prianti so fucking what the fuck out is shaking chaotic number so anyway that was just amazing and we were fucking losing our minds over it. I also wanted to talk about the preview view for next week or next season. We talked about the Kylie part but there was a whole thing with courtney crying and I what was it she was crying about the fact that she's turning forty and she was like I don't know it was it was like she was having a lot of anxiety about turning forty and she was basically saying she's like. I WANNA I WANNA have more time was just kind of hitting her that she was choose doing that. Thing where you turn forty and you're like Oh my God. I'm halfway through my life kind of Holy Shit. I mean just like a scary fucking thing. I so understand having a breakdown about that especially when you have kids I have that breakdown what my dad add literally every day and I'm twenty four yeah yeah I know but the point is that he's not twenty four and that's why you have that breakdown yeah. I know I totally understand that. Idea of life is so fleeting. We're the time go I don't know I don't I'll tell you that much back on the slightly. God Damn I wish I I wish I was more so we don't even get to see that until September fifteenth. I'm sure we'll see some more clips but we are fighting with two months stuff baited fucking breath. You don't even understand also Kim shared the first picture of saw or another. I picture with the picture of Psalm with Saint Saint is us like a sweet little boy and she's like seeing just wanted to hold his baby brother. Only go to the catch see woke up this nasty. Take a picture of him and little brother of course he did know allstate one. That was a little brother literally all saint. Why does a little brother all kinds of one? It was a little bit. I just can not handle saint. I can't handle it like I got to fucking cute like just chill. How can you be that? How can it be that cute and that's like little boys are always they're really cute and snuggly when they're at that age? A lot of them are like they're like I find a lot of times like toddler. Boys are like cuter and more effective than like toddler girls in your babysitting experience and like yeah just like in my life life experience. They tend to surround myself with a lot of kids. She does at least excellent babysitter seriously yeah. I think I'm just like a mom you are you'll be yeah I I told you this weekend. I was at around all my little cousins and as a holy should I cannot not we have kids. I there's so he said I know okay anything else that we need to talk about in the world crashy. Let's just take a moment to think. I know there's nothing else on Kauai but is there anything else that we're thinking that we are going to walk out of here and be like fuck. Why don't we say it? I wish the bonus show it put in a time when I got my eye that was so notable that input in in your life yes no. I'm just thinking about like how epic that episode was the Connie Episode Yeah Yeah definitely listen to that if you have any interest in Kanye West Jupiter heart and soul into it I think that is it remember.

Ep 239: JLo & Ben Affleck, John Mulaney, Lily James, A Kardashian Recap, & More.

"I think i was initially a little bit. Skeptical about cbd. Just because i heard about this wide range of benefits. And i guess. I just didn't really know if it would apply for me and i think my main goal in starting. It was just mental clarity. Because for me i noticed such a correlation between how well i sleep the night before and then how clear and how sharp i am the next day and so i started taking sunday scary. Both the gumy's also the tincture and i think the number one thing i noticed was just. I wouldn't necessarily consider myself an anxious person. But when i would get into bed at night at a really hard time calming my mind and with this product just noticed that i was doing that. It was almost kind of subconscious. Because the wasn't until the next day. When i realized how much sharper i was and how much more president was. That was really my goal. And then i spoke to the founders of sunday series a few weeks ago and it kind of just affirmed everything. I had thought about the company because it was started by two best friends who were feeling really stressed out. Who were feeling anxious and just wanted to create a good quality product. That would help. And they were so kind they really believed in it and as such a great conversation with them. I'm so glad to be working with his friend. And honestly if you're curious about. Cbd i think is a really good brand to start with because they ve very quality products that actually work so we got you is a twenty five percent off code visit sunday scary dot com and use promo code. Cbc discount that's promo code cbc for twenty five percent off at sunday. Scary dot com. Hi guys i'm i'm julie and we're the girls line comments and welcome back to another episode neutral. I am how you do over there recording a lot later than normal at a very much necessity. Let me tell you guys what happened. Because basically julian. I knew there was no way. We're gonna get an episode up on monday just because there was kind of a lack of stories and we thought if we recorded a little bit later on and we let the day go on more things that come out but never in our wildest dreams did we expected ben affleck and j. lo. We're gonna be spending almost a week together in montana on the same day that we had a lack of content for our podcast quite literally asking you showers eve julie. That really rocked me not to be dramatic but i am floored by this. I have to say. I don't even think i've had time to process the actual news. Because i've been so focused on the fact that we actually had a story to talk about. Julia was really nervous and understandably. So i mean we're getting later in the day and fewer things were happening with this one. This was to me absolutely deserving. Waiting till tuesday first of all we had released episode where was just us talking about. Basically nothing and then we didn't get this end because we had released it we would have beat ourselves up for the russ. Louis i know and the thing is i was saying this julie earlier. I'm kind of annoyed that last week. We had such an intense conversation about it. Because i don't wanna feel repetitive. But i do feel like this kind of changes things we can talk about it almost a different light. Yeah last week was kind of the pre horse the prerequisite our onto one on one. We keep the story keeps evolving. And we just got to keep following it. But we did the whole recap last week. The whole. here's what you missed from two thousand to two thousand and four so now. He gets a really bring to the president. Yeah i'm thrilled about that. And i'm sure we'll get into this. Obviously but i know a lot of people were asking basically is this real or is this just appear move and i guess my answer to that is either way. It's fun to talk about. And i feel like we can have great discussions whichever way. It's framed thank god this happened. Julie really thank god. this happened. i you're telling me okay anything else. You'd like to mention or shall we begin. We shall begin as you guys know ever regarding black owned business and this week it's called greer chicago. This is such a cool website. They have stationery office. Supplies notebooks greeting cards. They actually have stores in new york and in chicago but put the website and the instagram in the description as always a really really cool website so last sunday may second was the facts live concert in. La and j. Lo and ben were both there. They were not spotted together. There was no talk about that at all. Everybody just knew that they were going to be in the same vicinity. Apparently what happened was after that they took a private jet together to yellowstone club in montana where they were vacationing for about a week. Keep in mind. Ben does have a home in big sky but apparently they were staying at this resort and according to sources they were totally alone. It was just the two of them. We really know nothing else. Other than the fact that apparently they've been in touch and they quote picked up where they left off a rod as totally shocked again. I can't really preach to the accuracy of what we're hearing but we do know for a fact. They were spotted together in montana and they were staying there for multiple days together so wild. It's a fucking crazy julie. It is wild. I cannot believe that sixteen years later. So we are reliving this the speed in which we've ended and then arrived here is mind boggling to may will last week. I remember us saying that. You know some people kind of had this approach of like ok. Yeah xs the can't to grown adults be spotted out together and have they're not be romantic groomer swirling and we were saying yes of course but also wanna jennifer lopez and ben affleck. That's just going to happen. However i feel even more validated this week. Because they're on vacation together. Like what i don't even know. Obviously last week was just the shock factor of the two of them being seen together after all. These years known was one hundred percent. Sure whether this was the first time they had really seen each other. While had they stayed in touch all these years there was a lot of conflicting stories going around but the reunion in it of itself was enough of a new story. I didn't expect that one week later. We would be talking about them being on vacation together. I don't think anybody could have seen that coming because again the timeline here. Just kind of doesn't make sense also. According to the news article. That was released this morning apparently after she got back from the dominican republic where she was filming shotgun wedding. That's when he kind of reach out her to see how she was doing. We spoke about that. And i guess they have had dinner together a few times since then and that again like i said who knows if this is real. But according to the article quote the chemistry is unreal. So it makes me think did things just really progress from literally a month or so ago when she first got back. I don't know if it's the cynic in me. But i can't see this as anything other than appear move. Is that your. Is that your answering now. I don't know because the time line year and how quickly it's moving and how quickly she's apparently moved on from a-rod does matchup with j.lo's past. Obviously we know that this is very much how jaylo operate. There's just something about this. One specifically the era of ben affleck move on. That just seems it seems almost fake. Like somebody made this a fever dream and we're all just going along with it so i don't know i'm having a hard time finding it to be genuine happening if seal so pr to me. But i could be wrong. Oh no listen. It feels pr to just in the sense that i find jail to be so unbeliev. We calculated that being said. I don't really know how this puts ben this level of speculation. I'm talking going away together for a week puts ben in such a more advantageous late. I understand it. Maybe from jails perspective kind of. But it's a little bit confusing to me from bengal. And then i guess i don't know what you want to call it the hopeless romantic or maybe just some evening has me wondering well. Maybe there was unfinished business. We always knew that era was seemingly more into her than she wasn't jim and then i started asking myself all these questions in my mind. I have no idea if that's at all true. But i do wonder all those things. Yeah there's a lot of questions here. I mean to me. It's so the other way around because in my eyes it gives ben so much positive. Pr like i saw a tweet today. That was like he already looks hotter. He already looks hotter than he has in the past ten years just being in the front seat of that car with jaylo i actually don't specifically know what this does for lo herself. I mean i understand creating hype around the movie creating hype around her. I understand all the classic typical things that you would derive from copulated. Pr move like this but if you're talking about j. lo who's already seen as such a pr machine. The moving onto ben affleck so quickly after almost makes her seem like robotic. Doesn't air my wrong there. No you're not wrong. Although the question that i wonder because i think you're right is when has she ever tried to stray away from potentially being perceived as robotic when it comes to these types of things that's my first question and then my second question is i think that the goal for her. Yeah there's hype around the movie. But there would be hyper around the movie no matter what i feel like. It's just the further and further separation from a. rod. And i really think like says a million times. She was so turned off by that entire situation. And what better way to. Completely get a rod and j. lo jaylo out of the press than ben affleck and just go back to what you said. You're right about how so many people find this to be a really positive thing for ben in terms of the way that he's perceived but cello doesn't do anything for somebody else's sake so there has to be something that she finds to be a benefit for herself. I can't believe how much hype is around this one. I have to assume mediocre romcom. Because first of all you've already started the movie off with the fact. The original roller was supposed to be the hammer. They will j. lo. With the arab break-up again there was speculation. About whether jalen lenny kravitz. We're going to become a couple because he is in the movie and now on top of that. You now have them vacationing for a week together. J. lo and ben affleck. How could one movie get so much. Pr surrounding it. I mean we're talking about shotgun wedding. Your this is not. I would imagine an oscar award winning film so that camp to me. There's no way that that is the number one goal here. There's a million things you can do to create press for movie. I just don't think that a week long vacation in montana. With ben affleck is the commitment. She's going to give to this particular film no of course on. I obviously don't believe that to be the case for this one film. I think it's more of the joke about. This is the current project that she's working on in. There's obviously so much. Pr surrounding it for basically absolutely no reason. I think that it's it's just general. Pr for something. That we spoke about last week was just the thing with j. Lo is that she is everywhere and she has been everywhere for quite some time now and she just continues to say so present in our minds and the media and everywhere. We look and this is just another way of being able to do that whether it's genuine or not if she isn't a real relationship with ben right now if they are really reconnecting in hanging out there are still always going to be the element of that. That's feeding into the present. Jaylo is in our lives if this is real. This is entirely a pr strategy. And it's about separating her from a-rod and kind of moving onto the next chapter for life and you know that obviously got so look good because he's rekindling with j. lo then that's still you know what i mean. It just no matter what way you shape this. No matter what way you're looking at it it still has an element of pr to even if you think it's genuine of course of course let's just take option for a second the one where yes while. There is an element to pr. This is really more so a genuine rekindling they're doing. Can we just talk about that. Because julie and i were going over the outline and talking about it for a second i was like wait. A second does this mean that they like slept in the same room and she immediately responded was like yeah of course and then she was like we do they and i. I don't know. I have absolutely no idea. Your guess is as good as mine. Because i'm just lost here. Is this a situation. Where there in montana for the week and they're just getting away from it all and they're just like for lack of a more eloquent phrase fucking like rabbits. Wow really escalated the situation. Because that's what i wanna know. That is what i have to wonder. I'm sorry i can't help. But think do they get right back where they left off. I have absolutely not a clue in the world. I have no ability to wrap my head around the situation and try and analyze it as if this is really happening because my brain can't comprehend that okay but let me reframe are thinking for a second. Pretend that we weren't on a podcast and let's say whatever our predictions are. We're going to be so wrong and wouldn't be wildly embarrassing if we were just talking about this together and we didn't have to maybe even subconsciously. Consider the fact that we could be so painfully. Wrong what would your gut tell you if you really get in touch with your gut. I'm telling you i still don't know. Yeah i don't think i do either. I like i think. I just wanna believe that. It's real not because let me be very clear. I do not think that they are endgame by any means and again i could be totally wrong that i just don't believe it. I want to believe that. This is a realistic situation where it is as simple as jaylo getting back with her. Ex is a potential rebound from a break-up. Because i've seen a lot of means about that it's the most relatable thing about j. Lo it really is when you think about it that she got back with her axe after rageh the most unrelatable thing about j. was how quickly she moves on. Because i think everyone else is out here being like wow. I saw haven't moved on from that person. I was talking to four years ago and jaylo is two months alan. It's already you know onto the next one or onto the old one. The more i think about this the more. I i just go back to iraq for a second which is probably the exact opposite of what the pr machine wants us to do. But i can't help. But feel that the alignment in terms of like emotional investment had to be inconsistent with one another. I think that j. Lo and a rod thing is still so fresh to me but we've also had a lot of time to process it in the sense of from the time. The madison then came out to the time that we thought they broke up to when they actually broke up as Given so much time to prepare for this break up and understand this break up and not be surprised or taken aback by this break up. So i think that the moving onto ben affleck or the supposedly moving onto ben affleck doesn't seem as crazy timeline. Wise because we've had time to process this break-up already but at the same time when you think about how serious they were the fact that they were living in a house together. Their kids were basically siblings with each other. They consider themselves through this blended family and then all of a sudden that is just over. And it's onto ben affleck. It just doesn't seem real to me. It's so hard for me to comprehend that because it just seems like such a foreign concept the ability to do that altogether right. And i hear you very much so i can. I be so honest in my response though. Of course there is a part of me where i'm like shrouded even happened. I know that. So off. Brand but i think it's because i feel like j. Lo was checked out from the second. The first madison room were even remotely circulated that for some reason for me. Even though we've been talking about this engagement and this relationship for years now i'm like i don't know it's so easy for me to view. It is something in the past. Because i feel like she was so apathetic to it in a way or at least in the way that it was portrayed. I don't know if that's accurate or not. I don't know if feels that way now. In retrospect at the time after it happened it seemed like she was trying really hard to make it work. I guess now that were you know officially out of this relationship. It doesn't seem that way. But i don't know i mean listen. I also have zero towards jaylo in terms of who she dates and how long it takes sort of move onto the next person. She dates a hundred percent. Do whatever makes you happy. I just think from a logic perspective and what. We're used to in what we're used to dealing with unseen with relationships. It's just a hard concept to grasp. That's all no. Of course. I know you don't mean a judge mentally i so many questions julie like i need footage of j. lo and ben just in the room or wherever they are in montana together just talk. I literally just want to know what their conversations consist of me too. Because that's what i have to know. Are they catching up. On the past. Twelve years freight. You know that's lifting. There's been so many conflicting reports since this came out not even nessim saying like a few weeks ago came out people were saying no they'd been in touch for awhile now and then other saying they really haven't you know is only in the last few months they've been speaking more frequently so i don't know what the truth is. I think they've always been relatively cordial but have been doing lunches and nobody knew about it. Just seems unlikely. I truly i just have no idea. I just do not know in any capacity here. I feel so out of like my own element trying to figure out. What's going on your because usually i'm able to understand it or grasp it or idea about whether or not this is real or fager and actual reunion or just friends and i just feel like i cannot get a grasp of any of it here. I know i think that's why honestly and maybe it's not. Maybe this is just because we know jaylo. But i feel like that's why we're defaulting to the pr option in a way. Not because that isn't the case. But just because it's the most easy to digest. Yeah it seems like weirdly enough of the most logical option here. I know i feel the same way. I don't know you guys like we're just gonna keep updating as this continues because we are finding out just as much as you are and this is absolutely blowing our minds and also. I wanna posted sharon stone. Come with that. We just got so. Let's take a break and come up with their next door. Yes sir. I am definitely not the most technologically savvy especially when it comes to design things and oftentimes. I find that. I get really overwhelmed by some of these programs. And that's why. I'm genuinely so grateful for kanter pro because for every single thing that we use for our business.

Cbc to get free forty five day extended trial that c. a. n. a. dot me slash cbc canvas dot me slash cbc in other news. That it kind of took a back seat based on this whole j. Lo and ben situation was announced today. That john lenient his wife adam retailer are divorcing after six years of marriage and remember we reported on this late last year. He checked himself into rehab for sixty days struggling with alcohol and drug abuse and apparently he filed for divorce from her about three months ago she came out with a statement and said quote. I'm heartbroken the john has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery. You're a big time. john laney fan. How did you feel about this surprised. I was definitely surprised. I mean before he had gone to rehab. There was definitely conversation surrounding the marriage and thoughts of maybe it being in trouble for not being as great as everybody thought it was but once he went to rehab. I think that people thought those conversations about their marriage was very intertwined with this and that maybe after he went three. Have you would get help. And everything would be okay when it came out. Initially that they were getting divorced today. I assumed and i think a lot of people did that. She was the one that filed. So i think the most shocking part of the story for me here is that he's actually the one that filed and that she was shocked by it right and then on top of that it was his first. Show back tonight at city winery. And so it's no coincidence that the news broke today on the same day as his show. But i i agree with you. That's kind of how. I felt in that sentiment that i saw echoed as well. Where it wasn't that he will were so necessarily surprised that something wasn't perfect because there were rumors about that it wasn't i would say widely reported wasn't everywhere but there were rumors circulating but her statement. It really did surprised because we don't typically see that as much yet shocked me. Also the thing with this couple specifically is that it's not like they were a couple that was so president so all over social media and always seen how people love because of you know how present they were. That's not the case at all. The view we got of this relationship and their marriage was all from the way. John spoke about her in interviews and his standup so it was all from his perspective which is almost a more intimate perspective because his literally coming straight out of his mouth and his experiences with his wife in the way he felt about her was so much of his content so much of his comedy and a lot of people attach themselves this relationship as john mullany fans because they felt so connected to it. So i think that's worth huge part of the shot comes from when you're so used to somebody's speaking about this person and using them in their comedy and speaking about them so intimately from such a loving place when they announced divorce. You're like you almost don't understand where it even came from rain. And then you kind of get no comfort in that. Because according to her statement she seemed almost just as shocked. So your mind is having a hard time processing it. I mean i don't know. Do you think that he will speak on it in some detail in a very respectful way. Do you foresee him working this into his art in some way. Oh absolutely shocked if he didn't especially considering the timing of the news breaking and his first show being back tonight. I don't know if we'll get the information necessarily on how he does. Because i'm sure there will be a lot of. Nda's handed out at tonight's show because that is how comedy shows work especially when you're workshop new material but i would be shocked if at least something didn't come out of what he said so i guess i gotta have to wait and see there but yeah i would be absolutely shocked if it wasn't used his standup because think there's difference between quote using it and also your life becomes your art. It's the same thing about when you know. P davidson was talking about arianna during his stand up and was basically saying about how she used him in a song. It's your life becomes a reflection in your order and it would be shocking to me if he didn't use it in such way also. Because that's how you process. I think most comedians process their hardships in their trauma by making jokes out of them. So it'd be absolutely surprising to me if that didn't come out. Maybe not tonight. Although i'd be surprised also that was in the case but eventually yeah absolutely yeah no. It's very natural. I just think the term like using it for content makes it sound bad words. It's more so just. I think a form of processing i think so too. Same thing with songwriters. Even it's all very similar when that's your art. It just becomes one in the same as long as. It's not an disrespectful way which i cannot imagine john will any would ever have any sort of content. That would be outwardly disparaging towards his wife. I just don't foresee that no. I don't either. Although i didn't foresee him being the one to initiate the divorce. Ho i mean who knows her us a million things. You could speculate. You know some clarity that he reached in treatment who who knows what the deal was. Oh of course. I mean listen. I think that most people just wish him well in his sobriety and his journey forward. I'm absolutely shocked that he was the one to initiate divorce. But i also don't know anything that happened behind the scenes zahren. Anything that happened with his struggle with sobriety. So there's a huge question. Mark that i just don't have the answer to that. Most people don't have the answer to yet you and me both Will see we'll keep you guys updated and let's take a break and come back with a little bit. More ben affleck content. Anybody that shaves needs to know about this razor because hands down the best one i've ever used. I said this before. But since they send it to us. The only razor julian i will use. Is called the athena collaborator. And there's a lot of different things i like about it. But the first is is designed with built in skin guards and this innovative handle so it helps prevent razor burn while also being gentle on the curves and the other thing is the actual razor-blade itself is surrounded by a water activated. Sierra was shea butter. Anheuser onic acid to me. Hot gases my holy grail skin care product and so the fact that the actual razor blade has that it just makes it such a more moisturised shave like you really do notice it after that your skin feels a lot softer also the raiser kid is only nine dollars it comes with your choice of handle color an extra bleed head. Anna magnetic coke for easy shower storage. They also have this cloud she phone. Which is the best shaving cream i've ever used just everything about this progress company. I love that it's delivered. I love the convenience of it. And i really do think it's a huge difference for anybody that shaves so show your skin. You care with e club. Razor kit sign up today and you'll get twenty percent of your first order. Just go to a club dot com and use promo code. Cbc that's h. e. h. e. n. a. c. l. u. b. dot com with promo code. Cbc for twenty percent off. Okay so this is kind of old news now but it came out after we had released the episode last monday and we just wanted to make sure we could quickly talk about it. This is the whole ben affleck riot situation so really quickly thirty seconds for anybody who's not fully caught up. There's this tiktok user navien jay and she had posted a video saying that she mashed with ben on riot which is kind of like an exclusive dating app and she unmatched because she didn't actually believe it was him. she thought she was being catfish. He then slid into her diaz on instagram. Basically sending a very short video saying you match me. A really is me and the tiktok went absolutely viral. It blew up everywhere and there was kind of split stance because a lot of people were making fun of him for the video. Even though to me there was nothing to really make fun of. And then i would say the overwhelming majority of people were saying. This is such a violation of privacy. People go on this app because they feel that the people have been vetted they feel that they should be comfortable to be able to be two consenting adults trying to potentially explore something romantic and i think people really viewed it as just not okay. Yeah it was very. I mean it was very blatantly cloud chasing so interesting to me to choose five seconds of fame over a date with ben affleck. But i mean everybody's entitled to their own things but yeah it was. It was confusing the response to this. Also because there were people who were also saying. Negative things about ben in this case. And i just didn't see anything that really warranted that in this video. He was kind of just confirming himself. Clearly he knew that the unmatched that it was because she didn't think it was who he was it wasn't like he was harassing her match. It was just a very weird conversation surrounding this one seemingly harmless video will emus had contacted her and she said quote. I'm saying a lot of comments calling him a creep. And i don't think that's fair. I wasn't making fun of him in the video. I was making fun of myself for thinking he was a catfish and it just was supposed to be funny. Which like. I guess. I can understand the intention and i will choose to give her the benefit of the doubt but you have to know. Social media. Is these days in clearly. That was gonna blow up the legs of the story would have and i don't know it's like yeah it's fun for mean for five seconds with any remember. These people are human and yes maybe quote. He should have known better to not do that. In the case of. How can you trust a random stranger that they went to put that out there. But i don't know what a shitty wait have to operate in the world like i just. I thought it was fucked up i. I did not find that to be chill at all. Yeah i didn't either. Also i don't know why she thought it was a catfish. It's riots a celebrity dating app that you as a user and also i believe connects to your instagram. It's not like it was tender and you were going to be in conflict by somebody using ben affleck's photo no it was and it does connect your instagram. That's the other thing like i have ryan. I never use it. I just scroll sometimes just to see and like it's very clearly the person because you can't. I don't think you can even get on unless you directly linked to your instagram right. The other thing is i know you say you know right like choosing five seconds of fame over a date with ben affleck to me. It's not about the day with ben affleck to me. It's that if your goals to potentially date people not even celebrities with people. I guess in this circle which you can. Maybe assume that it is based on being on that kind of app. It just feels to me like you'd really be shooting yourself in the foot in terms of future interactions. Because of course people are going to be wary of your intentions. Yeah exactly i mean. The whole thing was just confusing in that element of it specifically is confusing to me. What else was interesting is that i saw a lot of discourse online about ryan eating to do better. I don't really know what else riot could have done in that situation. The goal was kicked off after. I don't know what way there is to prevent somebody from making videos about it on a another app right. It's not like that. Message was sent through. Ryan was sent to her through dams. Because i think their whole thing is you. Screen shot on araya. You got a notification saying if you do this one or two more times you'll be suspended and then kicked off. That's one of the ways that they try to increase security. Even though in theory somebody could just have another phone. Take a photo of it. But the like quote interaction didn't even take place on the app so i don't know what they could have done. The only thing they could have done as after the fact suspend her account or or off and to be really clear. I don't think this girl's like a bad person by any means. I just think you you're not allowed to do both. You're not allowed to do something that you know was gonna blow up and then say you didn't have this intention. There's no way that people are going to look at that story and understand your sole intention was to make fun of yourself are thinking you were being catfish it just when you're talking about one of the most famous celebrities in the world that's our people's minds are going to go. Yeah like i said there is nothing in that video in it of itself that was creepy but it was a complete invasion of his privacy and there was no reason to put it out. I understand that she was trying to make fun of herself on some level but berry obviously what you were trying to do was have a tech taco viral. And it did in. You accomplished your goal in that but you can't then pretend that that wasn't your intention. Your intention was very obviously cloud. There's no question there. I don't think that she specifically would have predicted the way that the internet would have reacted. Because i think a lot of people were making something out of the video that just did it wasn't there and didn't exist and that i don't think that she predicted the outcome of but just in terms of it blowing up in general yet. You obviously have to know that that's going to happen. And the other thing that's important to understand is that you set age. Range is like on any dating apps not like it was just a one sided thing. She clearly had him in her age range and she clearly chose to quick except as well you know they both have to match with each other so at one point she was into this and excited about it and i understand. She's upset that. Her date with ben affleck was lost the to me. I can't help a thing about those future encounters because nothing bad even happened with this and it was exposed. So imagine if you're somebody who's in the public eye and you may want to begin a relationship with her. You have in the back of your mind. What happens if it goes bad. How can i trust. It won't all be exposed. Which i guess is a fear that you have any way and some people could maybe call it paranoia but then this brings that into existence. So i don't know. I just i wasn't down for it and honest to god i mean i feel like you know craziness is something that can be felt into me personally. There was nothing about it. That felt creepy. I thought it was kind of hot. I think i'm telling you joy. Like i said last week. I think he's so hot. You use it last week that you got it back after having lost it. Meanwhile you never lost it. But i'm glad that this video happened. Because i feel like at least you don't have to pretend anymore will you call me out on it and i agreed. I enjoy calling you out on things like that. Yeah because i think. I don't know why i like. The internet made me feel ashamed for thinking. Affleck was hot or something. And you know what i'm here to say i'm over that not say i'd want to date him and not saying jaylo show data and i i understand that he has some issues in his life but if we're talking about his attraction level yeah fine dining athletics and i'm so proud of you for living your truth thank you. I really do appreciate that. You're so welcome anything else you wanna mentioned about that. No i think that's it okay. Well let's just talk about james and sebastian stan in this pamela anderson tommy lee situation because holy shit. Whoever did her makeup all the emmys give. Just give them all the emmys for anybody. Who didn't see their starring in the new who series pam and tommy and it really phenomenally done. I mean we haven't even seen the show yet but just from those costumes. I feel like that was the best type of hype building. One could do releasing those photos. You know that's what our format that's like. She understood the assignment. Yes always understands the assignment. I was so happy for you specifically. Because i know you have such a connection to her like deeply and this was just such a good moment in her acting career and i feel like you really celebrate that. Well i yeah. I mean i watch mama two three times a week. I literally watched it last night. So i love lily. james. And i'm so excited for and i love russell. Internet celebrates her for being wonderful. Even though we haven't even seen her in the show yet we already know. It's going to be amazing. Because i cannot believe that transformation it literally looks exactly like pamela anderson. I cannot believe it i know. And seth rogan. Isn't it to yet. He has which. I'm so excited about him. Posted are kind of just been. I mean but i think it was him that basically said like yeah by the way here i am because he was getting zero attention because clearly the whole focus was on how hot they look together. Yeah he posted it will. I don't think anybody realized that he was in an s early. Maybe like a couple of people but the obviously the conversation was surrounding them because the photos got released and he was like he posted instagram. Which was like a slide graham of him being like they are obviously the stars of this. I'm also going to be in this. You know what. I was thinking about you remember. I guess it was for her birthday. Thank when kendall. Did the pamela anderson costume and people thought that it looked really good. What you did. There's no reason to compare them. But this was like the ultimate version of that handle looked so hot that day. Like as pamela anderson kendall killed it. This legitimately looks like pamela anderson. I looked at that photo for ten minutes especially the one that she posted herself. And i was like i cannot even believe that. This is not a photograph of her. It looks exactly the same. I know i know and honestly if i'm ann landers and i'm really flattered that somebody could do me up in that way. I know that her. And tommy have zero involvement in the movie but still. How much do you wish that. Pamela anderson commented on the league james instagram. I completely removed all even remote excitement. For because i think she had made announcing awhile ago that she wasn't because when i saw it was my first thought we obviously save the postal refreshing. And i was like this is just going to end his appointment if i remain any sort of hope for pam liners and comment but yes julia like more than anything. I knew she wouldn't. She did leave instagram and she made a post about a year ago saying that she was leaving but there was just. I knew it wasn't going to happen. I just liked to fantasize about comments and that was one of my fantasies. We also got kinda screwed this week in terms of celebrities just not capitalizing on amazing comin opportunities. We have to talk to them. I have to work. Needs to talk to somebody. It's really some. I'm telling you it's like there's some weeks where people either them or their pr team. However you wanna call it is really on it and then there are other times when there so many phenomenal opportunities that you would think they would jump on and it just wasn't there. I know it's heartbreaking. When that happens you guys know how much i love this company for so many reasons. I love the convenience. I love the quality and i really liked that they have this mindset that you should seek pleasure in all areas of your life including what you eat very much. Believe in that so. I'm talking about the car which for anybody. Unaware it's an attrition company that really focuses on overall wellness starting with me and their menu is organic ready to eat meals. It's creative chef crafted breakfasts lunches dinners. It's changing constantly so for me. I don't really do well with repetition and something i love about sikora is that the menu is constantly changing. So you're not really going to get bored and then the best thing is that it's delivered fresh to your door anywhere in the. Us also along with their plant rich meals. They also offer daily wellness essential so supplements for example. And the thing that i love the most. Is they have this metabolism super powder. It's made with organic rock cow and it works to boost energy eliminate loading minimize sugar cravings and reduce fatigue. I just put one scoop of it in my smoothie. And i genuinely notice the difference when i take it or don't right now. The cars offering our listeners. Twenty percents off their first order when they go to safercar dot com slash cbc or enter code cbc checkout that's the kara s aka a dot com slash. Cbc get twenty percent off your first order. Sikora dot com slash. Cbc not that much in kardashian world it was mother's day. i'm sure we all saw travis's flowers and correct me. If i'm wrong but i don't think there was a mother's day post from scott. To courtney was there not that i saw. I did see that. Chris instagram story that he had sent her flowers. So i assume that there were flower sent but i did not see an instagram anything. Post story nothing yet. You know the other thing that i was thinking about. I feel like there was such an intense analysis as chew the difference between travis and scott's post accordion who was gonna post. What and like. I obviously get it clearly. But i feel that. Kind of removes the fact. That scott is still very much grieving. I don't care how many years it's been like. I'm sure mothers as a heart holiday for him and so i don't know i just don't want that to be totally lost in the conversation i recognize. I have a bias for that but still it's a legitimate point. No i think that's a very legitimate point. I don't think it's a bias. I think you just have an understanding that most people probably wouldn't have thought about right away. But i'm sure it is a very difficult holiday for him and also i don't think this is a situation. Where just because he didn't post it doesn't mean that he's not thankful that courtney is the mother of his kids. He's obviously so thankfully obviously thinks she's such an amazing mother. He had posted for her birthday very recently. I just think this is something he didn't wanna post and therefore he didn't have do very much so and i think we're starting to get away from that now we're starting to get to the point. Where like it's seeming less and less weird like the way that people felt when they were holding their breath all of us included for her birthday wondering he was gonna posting lever. They i feel like that has lessened a little bit. With the mother's day post i think will continue to lessen with every holiday. Your maybe i mean i just wanna i just wanna get to the point with them where we see them co-parenting again the way that we were because i think that would be very comforting every not have to worry about or placed so much emphasis on the is he gonna post is gonna for this. Holiday is scenepolice for birthday. Is he gonna centers something. I think that if people saw more signs of everything is okay there co-parenting together then people want to place that kind of emphasis on it. But maybe they are in a place where they can be together like that yet. I don't know we haven't had a ton of family events though. I'm i'm curious if he was at psalms birthday party. Actually let's also say this is gonna change once we see how the entire season plays out because right now or in like potentially the worst part of the show as it applies to feeling any sort of comfort about scott and courtney's current standing like that did not leave everyone on a note. Were they can feel confident. That things are good. Yeah exactly yeah. So we'll have to see. I don't know anything else kind of ashes. I mean it was a pretty slow week. Yeah it was slow. I think kylie travis are probably getting back together or back together. You saw the date with them. Kendall devon adjusted in right imagine just sitting catch and looking over and seeing the six of them at a table together wasn't there spotting and then they're spotting so that is a fucking spotting no that's next level it's like you're in noble and all of a sudden it's kid. Cutty davis in kim kardashian kanye west timothy xiaowei. Why would you bring up to me. I'll throw saying. That's the only thing that i could think of. That was comparable in terms of like holy shit as spotting and they had their back room so it hardly was. You know. I know. I still think the funniest thing in the entire world is p davidson telling that story about how he ended up paying for the entire dinner. It's so funny. I just can't imagine being somebody 'cause they had to get to that private room somehow either. You were walking in at the same time that they were leaving or you're sitting down as they were walking in and at a certain point you probably didn't necessarily believe it was real. Because of the mix of people i would not have. I would have thought i was hallucinating. Truly you know we need to get on this podcast. Xiaomei p david the waiver. The waiter that served on that night. I have so many questions. That is a really great idea. Okay that to our shared note on a widow. Anything else you'd like to add. I think that's it. I don't know guys weird week. We'll see you on. Thursday for the kardashian bonus show is i will see you friday for bravo and reminder that the ad codes are in the description of the episode of course highlighted block of business. We love you guys and listening so much free.

Episode 54: Escape from Flavor Town

"Take a Estonians and dragons allow basically what you're asking now so the idea here is who create a basically goofy adventure because you know what at the end of the day when it comes to playing with a group of people who may not zero knowledge far fair because unlike unlike my siblings I don't do this shit I mean variously disappeared several years ago every year since groups of chefs assemble to search for this place most combat never finding anything some never come back at all Oh spooky spooky so I'm not GonNa lie I sonny it be theater majors or writers or anything like that a lot of character storytelling in DNB tends to be us by Brendan is long ago there was a town known far and wide for its cooking prowess this attracted Gorman's from all over the world and eventually we'll overall yeah hey so can you maybe 'cause I feel like I'm coming to this with tonight on Dungeons and dragons and diners drive INS and dives I've been an proficient in charisma y'all can bite me why not have a module setting or adventure where you know what we're just GonNa have a goofy good time it's not like I've never done it but it's not one of my current hobbies so what is what is it that you're trying to create here cruel you are the m yes you can the worst I heard yeah fuck huge I'm Brendan and let's find out what happened so like for instance as I hinted with my title of the adventure and my opening the EH dungeons and dragons campaign if you want specific content warnings that things we may talk about check out the show notes on no stories sacred dot com part of the summary provide felt were still talking about it and we're inviting you to join the conversation I'm cat and I do not have enough background knowledge for this other worlds ball soon it became a place where every aspiring chefs would travel in pilgrimage however the town mistake awkward and Goofy so sometimes it's fun to just steer into the skid kind I understand so the principal antagonists for this adventure is the demon Lord Guy Fiery which is the only reason why I wanted to make the no no wait a co Alex today we're talking about a story idea by Brendan escape from flavor town with the idea of it becoming you want when it comes to making a campaign setting which is really like maybe even campaign is like more like a adventure modules it happened in the first place because food puns were doing them a fair yet so again I'm Alex and I'm going to roll to the Ceefax exceeded the opening one oh oh sure I'm I'm GonNa roll an insight check oh now my dam thinks that comes to books movies TV shows all that might be TV shows to a lesser degree We're talking LINEAR STORY PROGRESSION RIGHT NONE LINEAR story because I don't think we don't think I've ever really talked about like non linear storytelling at all really because for the most part all are looking for here is goofy good times had by all and then frankly I think it might be fun to talk group how to tackle a more ordered point is point bedia yeah but with an interactive adventure you have to be cognizant of the fact that a vision of sixty six string Samurai modern sure why yes you know you can play with that aesthetic you can have any kind of spray Oh fuck sorry Alex tried to roll higher wanting to get out of the twin pack yeah I'm Alex and well Allie John Look sorry who's four at the group of players can do pretty much whatever the heck they want their rather they can try and do whatever the heck they want whether they yeah pretty much John well at the same time though interesting choices can happen like a you know what you don't need that kind of Asshole in your we already have one I know you do everything I could do John's already doing shout out to John which you are trapped in the Demi plane of dread a by the vampire Lord Straw Vantera rich see that's another story fuck you we're going to be pirates I don't play y'all's game clearly eventually defeated the Vampire Lord but like also brought democracy to the valley because why not they told it aw alive inspiration for the premise of this module from I guess the the cursive Strada Campaign Iran last year described happens and does but like my players said some of which are in the room right now among other things should they rolled well that was not in the campaign guide also happened before I got there yeah if you try and do a straight up one fight you'll probably looms but if you go and complete all the plot coupons go off the rails really quick John Know How to roll with the punches literally ha ha it's open world open world word bizarre stuff is still going to happen and Dang it you're GonNa have to challenge guy fiery to a cooking challenge to and all cooking challenges because or in this case maybe you find a the five Michelin Stars of power and kill and they'd be power yeah so with doing a more goofy adventure it's like you know what if they decide to hold an election the town good for them we reasoning post to the fact that you haven't done righted me because genuinely I'm like can I play as a camel that doesn't talk and that's where I would go with it and I'm like have a charisma five and a normal person is ten so me out of his this adventure as said with the as was said with the opening we have a near legendary I showed up on what the fuck are you guys doing but like this is that when you're running something like this you got to keep in mind things people for a Kimmel are there yes is it a non talking can they have no language so yeah oh my God that's perfect I would just go round like eating Shit uh-huh good job good job if you collect all the plot coup coupons then you can send away for a solution pretty much seems worth it to me worth the price of admission Lynch ships and then just the opportunity to have as many cooking show references puns everything like that I made a note saying that like one of his lieutenants is where Wolfgang Puck sir lawyers do not take anything we say legal advice thank you so so just to kind of get the ball rolling a big things like that after technical things to actually make it work also because of who I am as a person I did look it up and if you wanted to there are stats event venture that the player characters are all chefs who are wanting to find this lost city of flavor maybe they wanna find the loss this is already there that's true so general notes they had about this so far final bad guy guy this analogy to stretch it as thin as I possibly can is like the prologue bit where you just have to accept as part of the premise of running the part about writing a story for machos like this is kind of a a rivers and lakes approach and by Yup we can have a Ted Allan reference in the form of the chopper you know I mean the fiery because you know what having a dungeon master have the opportunity to try and do their worst Guy Fieri impression let me by that is that you have linear sections as you can alike have story beats happen so like a river section for instance the this happened for you thank you anyway but yeah guy fiery what a Dick so so in the back now so so that's like river number one and then when you enter this the town when you find it that's spices or something like that some some plot motivator maybe they want to find the ultimate beagle recipe now we're we're thinking like a long lost city of flavor Obama yes the village of New Mommy after that you taken down from five legendary assistances to just three stuff like that it it reduces his hip points aw Guy Fieri guy fiery knows about it now and is going to try and steal it from you because that might be one of the things that he when you enter what's called a a lake where you can kind of explore around a little bit the story isn't progressing forward quickly but like the second you find that one macguffin or plot coupon or whatever that's when the next little story progression happens so like Oh you found I do I do this I think it's because of you know the love I didn't get as a child really trying to better the world is falling people could see fair use say so say we I am definitely a lawyer sure no no none of it I aren chef is right there pep pep this fantasy land myth roll chef enough isn't this iron armor isn't there there is but Neth rose more fantasy sounding and fund fair enough that currently owned by anyone like this or or change around a little bit that way it's not quite as on the news I dunno we're going to have fun with your main village Van is guy fiery then owned some amount of respite from the tortures of the nine hells you know actually imagining like a because we he's been looking for in this village the entire time that's why he's been tormenting the villagers defined that recipe book Guy Fiery will remember this yes he will and then he'll try and torment you because Demon Lords like that you know it it's something nice every once in a while not an episode of of the podcast without bringing up either hamlet or John Laney or both me as hamlet you go on Time Warner have it they don't have myth roll chef fair enough it still counts as trips transformative fuck that noise this is all fair use people they oh my God I'm talking to route two people invite them is what you're telling me yes I'm like I said with that information I mean I don't know the history of Thomas ups Thomas Three In this world which is unfortunate what am I noticed 'cause I'm running a campaign from the official books because if you can't make your own campaign store buys never know Yep so it's the things you have to which is important lesson for writing serve some concept y. you know it can get a little tiring I mean I'm working on a fantasy a thing right now and I have to do all the world building and as they're trying to sneak around you know they see guy fiery like in front of a mirror having like this deep conversation with himself being Schwab very much does you can bite people I got the train you'd have fifty points and the speed of fifties because just one where you can just have like straight up evil people and it's like gets trail nobody wants just yeah he's a bit of a Dick Oh yourself as an author should probably figure out whether or not glass exists and what level technology etc and so forth you do not necessarily need to torture the reader Akao cancer here he's a potato thank you so potato discourse sorry this is where you guys really come in because oh no I was just making food puns the rest is I also been dealing a name I know I know I'm a nerd I am sorry you had to find out oh and the we joked about this before a off off podcast gear you've found the the deck of many recipes I need to be mentioned but you still need to know about in any way Adleman and you can keep those to yourself and not put him on par mine near but they're all like no background details that the characters either haven't earned or can't possibly know and so they might just in general 'cause they're gonNA need bits of your story that you yourself oh no that is not important to your plot at does not face-off against guy fiery I think that's where the majority of the quote unquote story can take place so the I'm sitting here being like I need to know what their basic diet is and and essentially what their crop rotation looks like but nobody else needs to know that I mean that's completely ridiculous story Yes and then we can as necessary come up with amazing you can have a positive answer result guy bad guy here's the problem I don't know enough I feel like the greatest news you know you have all your character's like infiltrating the Ziggurat or whatever of Guy Fires Kitchen Ziggurat indeed taking get a very science fiction ing sounding story where it's like you describe every mundane detail about like technology x. what I wanted to but like that's going on and y'all just sneak the fuck past you don't even finish hearing it well one of the things is is there is tried and true story beats that we can try and follow here that aren't necessarily food pun related that's where the about you know the mechanics aspect we will do that as necessary okay and I would also like to point out that we keep throwing around Dungeons and dragon up to you guys Rude Yup look look I I thought where Wolfgang Puck was was fun just saying thank you bragging about knowing bowel movements it's the thing so I I did run a honey heist for no no no no pip Al Bobby Mind Flare Oh yeah and cat you'll need to worry doc I mentioned earlier about having to collect numerous plot coupons in order to be able to for the peanut gallery so to speak can can come in handy basically the the way I can go is we can try to come up with a the goal of this of of this whole thing is to have a bunch of food puns and I just don't have that inmate well you don't have to just do the did we think this way now fuck it I mean you could you could have like some deeper motivations like maybe through cooking dot guy fiery foul dude punts not I feel like bobby flay you don't even need to do anything you just need to get a weapon Bob Pep Bro Robert Player whole thing we're not you can if you felt like you wanted to you could translate the any table top and that is not the only tabletop RPG out there for theoretically consents we're not gonNA actually design this they hold out but I mean also like you know if one of your characters have like in your world building and fluff your characters has glasses eh natural twenty at the end to save the day of course and give stirring speeches which moved me to tears and let them win I'm very proud of everyone listen considering that the the first time they tried to play my daughter my youngest decided that the best thing to do was to absconded away to some nearby parallel dimension where the inhabitants are tormented by a demon Lord city of chefs You know just relaxing cool yeah and then it gets RPG you're comfortable with kids it's just the bones of it but we may talk about dungeons and dragons 'cause that's what we happen to know my children we did not have any dice I just made up random numbers they made up random numbers and yet somehow they still like rolled you you can translate this to hunt Heist Fair I did Deanna game of hummy highest with my children using no what craft as far as an adventure is concerned I don't know all I know if sunny I I feel in my heart that there's the potion that I just WanNa make sure that my food isn't stupid when I have them go in like you do I have them get some corn or do I have some get potato or do I have them get the that's terrible I love it great all right so here Brent you were talking about how one who likes to put may on everything I don't know history just doesn't examine doesn't like eggs once again my daughter control hub of central lake which is the town sake and imagine that when you first entered the town there's like all sorts of places you could go is gonna try to eat everybody Weird Yeah Oh golly listen she took the bear thing seriously see I I guess for hi everybody welcome to no story is sacred if you've never listened before basically were four siblings who grew up talking about the art of storytelling now that word outright say like this is the only way to win because players are creative in you know what they can always find ways around it was about sort of planning one of these things you mentioned rivers and lakes yes is there like an approximate number like when you're pre planning is there an approximate number of let's say late what's going on why did this town disappear why is it that chefs that come here never come back in some cases because they get killed the ultimate final fight for instance the party that I ran the vampire campaign with a did a justifiably yes the holy of tastiness PIP and and the lesser one is actually just Mayo just have the bear start killing people and I'm like no that's not the point she's like I'm just GonNa have to then he tries to eat people and like it lasted less than a minute in other cases they get Recruited so I have another question and she's I'm sorry I'm like asking so many of these things you be on because you were the bear master go wall and I don't use the word because I used to be an emt so anyway Brag So what do you do you think you're out the wind condition like do you think you figure out a way a means to an action adventure climax I'm trying to worth of game time someday he's going to play actual day and she's going to be amazing we know you go to the Bar and the bartenders are William and decided yes they give you helpful friendly advice for you guys let's start off with the premise long lost they're not long long a long lost to go get a drink at the bar will into noma was that will he'll send you could go to the Williams sonoma there the cards for Shit you'll ever make yes so you go and explore and kind of figure out the mystery of what areas that you're you don't want in this case it's not too too complicated we have a son somehow no but now just just to spit out a spin around ideas and we can see what we can of course my own knowledge here yeah of course the wind condition is in my head the target when condition because he can never the giant solar laser pointer of death you get there yeah I did that was my bad Aachen all in Aley fucking us who call that up pep pep rally is mayonnaise that studied abroad in other campaigns that I saw online they trapped the deem the Vampire Lord in a dull forever I mean you can do that the DM can do whatever they want. I mean it's a little bit like what happens in cabin in the woods yet in cabin in the woods there's then in the final fight they assisted the bad guy you know so becomes much harder on yourself for no good reason nights Kinna Are you not it's it's stuff like that so lake I mentioned the five Michelin Stars. You can try and recover from the lieutenants you have to defeat like if you don't defeat the lieutenants ahead of time in their little bastions of power condition is everyone dies or those who don't die sign on with the Demon Lord and become one of the chefs of the Dan sure yeah look she might if you find her and maybe this is another example of a small doc and none of you can tell me otherwise pep yet Julia Child is there in hiding Ichiro that's my so like yeah you have to go and on the full moon fight where Wolfgang Puck must face Gorgon on all managed to avoid the lose conditions one after that despite the fact that it should not be possible so like in this case the lose all like side mission you could do another plot coupon you can get the help you defeat guy fire at the end maybe you can go and retrieve Gosh what's something that Julia child would want a bottle of red wine yes yes nicely done is ready and another -nother food joke here there's a grave named Batali and if you try and like approach it I have to imagine play off the top of my head here you go to a graveyard and you see all the dead chefs gravestones man under something which is what all the lieutenants are surprised prize are all the chefs that when searching on this pilgrimage never came back anything insight checkup and listen I'm not a good deal you're getting there you get in there earn and do that no no no that would be too easy if it was that easy she'd do it herself no you have to like go to literal hell or something Avenue Ramsey four oh no I love it some good fucking contests so you assume it has to be something super fancy yes yes he does she just Kinda I'm so sorry yeah no that'd be hilarious so that'd be a really reading so you have to find for Julia Child a fine bottle of red wine zied can't just go to the tab nice little dm like trip as it were and could run a perception check or something like what kind of wine do she wants looking around the kitchen you think he'll take the thing she thought that no actually she would've cooking you go a good bottle of wine but you can come back with anything a sunny whispering I feast and after each bite the hook you must face your dark dark memory from your path to Holly's dead to us I does it really have anything to do with what we were just talking about it just occurred to me that Julia Child is the your all going to have to take a sip and then cat has no idea what we're talking about Inclu I'm dislike I you know it always hurts there's a challenge you to drink from an and that makes you fight your memories or something consumption check after constitution check the fighter can't succeed all of the to crocodiles come and you have to kill them I was thinking if you approach it it gives you a cinnamon bun recipe but but but but eight for the players it's like I don't I don't think we won I don't think he did either now like that sounds a lot of fun yeah and of course they're our allies you know as we mentioned Julia Child is there Paul the Hollywood uh-huh why y'all what Sh- hot ones the Oh yeah oh it Sean Evans and this channel I feast and how creepy and terrible just an echoing hallway to someone oh Mary Berry come now here's the Paul Paul of the Hollywood signed on with guy fiery again but berry all yeah oh no no fuck that you know who should really be an ally so great because people think they can win and they really can't they can never win no one wins everyone leers see that challenge asked me to take her that like you go and have tea and cakes at Mary Bury's cottage various little side stories that you can have in a campaign you run where it's like you can have a segment where you discover a lovely little cottage and down from the chimney come to very sarcastic yes I want these people just in general fuck this game yeah if you just make a nice tray of cookies hey you impressed mary she thought they were scrubbed watched for at least I have that's the space jam one it's a spicy wings spicy 'cause now as far as story beats our concern every single little segment that you make you WanNa try have them in my I can't explain it to McDonald's store so yeah I get this is just an example of what the fuck they give you inspiration to do better and every once in a while they turned the cameras off after dithering and bantering from the players and all that so like the the Mary Berry cottage would be like a perfect yeah my side they would so let's talk bad guy guy fiery himself because has as mentioned before you can have all these little side adventures happening but eventually like that one plot coupon gets collected and the I don't know a good joke to do with Mary Berry Imbaba Yoga but you said t in her cottage and I just got let this bad guy is looking to do like I mentioned as one potential motivation finding the deck of many recipe really hard but you don't get the full like bonus you know he did really well that's where you get the melons sue speights only God you would earn them there Q. Yeah it's like that was so scrubby here I I just you you need to be rewarded and then ways her hands and then being sorted the same oh I like this so it becomes all cuisine is the same cuisine says hot ovens come on it works the gluten you have to fate the gluten goal so how I just want to say guy fiery wanted to take over everybody else's restaurants and replaced him with diners Oh something similar he he wants to make everything a side quest night where it's like yeah we're going to go and explore the woods here where we haven't explored before and would you know there's a weird cottage ooh And so in fact people coming to to find the lost city are in fact part of the problem themselves yeah he's a is and using that to bolster his cooking powers and maybe escaped the hell's forever I don't know so musemes to look at or annoyances at best now is actually starting to pay attention to you like typical bad guy he cries moment for all the players to realize oh shit we're in the bad place like yes my fucking Theri companions that like fly beside you and perkins that something's not easy there bards and they haven't been crafted because they don't actually and eat the cottage yes they eat the entire entire cottage I I had a inappropriate thought being that I'm not everybody's point of view like what exactly have you been doing this entire time oh my God I am the problem that in gem I love it when you can I love it when you can turn a story just like on a on a dime and reach re- effect doable in about like four hours of story are of a of a of game play time on the on the high end you know assuming there's eh even better if if they have like a fucked on bug on them yes what happens if you fail though well she says that you tried ah soup Perkins I'll what they can be they can be like little like if you are affect one thing it ends up affecting other things yeah so if you have the blood of someone remember would mind a few bears showing cottage wow she probably make honey cakes or something hubris leading to panicked overreactions you know what I mean so like let's I I still haven't really come up with and your players being players they'll bicker with each other until eventually somebody sneaks in fails and then cook a good idea that ups the heat so to say on the adventure and you know this demon Lord who before thought that you were you know just on but in doing so they are in fact the the instruments of their own destruction I like those into like if there can be you know that's how he's finding you when he has you he can get your restaurant that's why we are all the chefs are drawn to the mysterious tastic like for most of the game and then you actually get into the garage and it turns out to be intensely fucking serious yes name and destroy your life depending on a random draw the card that's hilarious because people know D- indeed and they hope so it's a shortcut it's magic it's a contagion magic if you if you thank you Sir James Frazier the Golden Bough and milk and this is also why did that deck of many recipes is so important for you to have an Hem 'cause you ooh true whereas he wants to destroy or perhaps infected ooh which is just a wondrous wondrous as in very powerful artifacts that has potential to either be amazing or completely break the yeah is that once up her short rest you can open the book random recipe and it will have the effect of whatever give Oh oh I love that you are like if you had not done this thing you would have had a win scenario it would have been to go into the one cabin in the look is a cottage in the forest how dare you and support you are my kid in which case the bears come sat dont dente like this and it plays into the whole defiant expectation things Would a demon want I mean if these are different chefs mccraw support platinum and other world as well I think it'd be kind of cool if a impossible for the SEAMY guy fiery cooking into a complete so like literally the Demon Lord couldn't get it you can do shit to them if you have their toenails if he has the The book of recipes does something to that book of if he turns them all the same it will then back you know you thought joke fuck you especially if you've been using the book Carter Time yes now you give that to a player they're gonNA be like I want to try this hell Yeah WanNa see what this does you're going to like give them an item Carter something it might have taken a lot longer for the lose I mean yeah but by getting it you have in fact done a chutes and ladders it and who knew it was actually the biggest plot coupon of all it'd be hilarious if like you this is my this is totally my champ he made it I win but what is the in the Ziggurat or something or within a certain space of some other thing it does this other thing police suspect that there might be something up yet those suspected Oh it's just a funny playoff deck of many things it is probably just funny agile Iran didn't really have that so to speak like it had a light version of it like oh you got this one item and he wants it back but not straight to let monopoly go to do not pass go collect two hundred dollars except go to jail goes yeah thank you I know games salt in it to him this is why natural twenties are a DMZ nightmare those vicky not for any fucking podcast reasons this is purely to help you yeah I mean we we do this for any other reason of fair point the greatest games you're a good job breaking it hero scenario exactly I love that trope like a vampire extra turn or energy I don't know what the guys do your games but shit like you're very close that's actually very close changed it a copy of it so convincing he thought it actually was his diary and and I wrote in strongly let's take it if he has the option listen we still has got end diary and I am we're proud of that then I the woman he loved didn't love him he was a loser that's just fact the demon Lord was a then turn everybody else a shortcut to his plan you brought brought it they're thinking that it was the solution to defeating him writing this Can we in our infinite wisdom assist here dramatic plot points instantly a fully stocked carriage with kitchen inside a appears before you I mean that's useful yeah I was more thinking loser the yeah I I like this trip I I I I kind of want to expand on it even further if I were to damn reference go oh tacos instant food cart ooh also like comedic plot points as well let's be fair here because again this is escape from flavor town were not playing like got and I was just thinking that the trial you have to undergo to get the deck of many recipes is you have to do a challenge that would be actually right boasts are we taking notes on my God I mean we are recording it that's true that's true useful other artifacts well I was told tip one that would be a heavy duty adventure zone slash the I I just I figured I didn't salted you a great deal at the beginning of the podcast and I really want to confuse the listener so you like her in lit channeling Mellon Su- yeah uh-huh uh-huh well that's true super serious okay so what constitutes a a serious dramatic thing when it's shit that gets made up by players because part of the joke F Y at of the book of many recipes is it to pay off of the deck of many things okay and are they friends I don't know keeping on the toes keep them guessing that's what we want from a podcast uncertainty might be like Oh that Demon Lords Adik I'm GonNa make it my goal to embarrass him or to kill him sicker the affections of the actual people just like a real family no one must ever know that we're not hers involved that over the course of time just because players WanNa go and talk to people they can form friendships with or tail and he was super yeah I believe he launched lightning Alex anyway I just said got to go save this little orphan child who just got captured the kid makes him on cool yeah going back to fixing in this case it is a food carriage rather that you can keep in your pocket and seek a command word and throw it out in front of you and then whatever so you can put them in peril and so then that gives element of danger and pressure that like oh now you can dangle a long lost tomes for instance ends like oh well surely the librarian would want to go and recover the Oh there's a really strong challenge over there and you know what I am just enough of a glory hound that I want to go and conquer it says may be somebody any of these goddamn folks even though even though you had this really cool one over here with like espionage and Chet but you can work with it anyway in another way you can also play to hooking the particular players that you're playing with like if you know that say pippen is a librarian character weird I don't know having as pep said all these potential hooks like so you can have like the major story beats the major calls to adventure to start things off okay Brendan's like Quinlan Secret Oh no no no no I'm trying to think what we can talk about next six yeah the they do and you know what just imagine the cloud that that librarian character would get for recovering that book holy crap what's the role there while there's all sorts of things you can keep in your tool kit you can have things called non player character this plot coupon can lead to two more like you defeat Gordon Ramsay and you discover a map to the mysterious look for let's say regular fiction Sunni secret it's not you know how how sometime for instance and generally that's all you really need because you could design this such that like each plot coupon does is like a never ending chain of like was conditions sort of then and then one after another in cabin in the woods their various games that are going in be so good for my patrons so like there's little things like that you can play too but like a good way to go about it is just if you're writing your own thing you pan out a little bit an advanced what the East possible hook can do and if you know enough about your world than even if they don't take you know it's stuff like that and keeping in mind that your players are playing for a reason They do want the adventure that you thought it home of many recipes or deck of many recipes however you want to decide that one because you know what that is a rare one of a kind book in My library does Klett Cook that's actually what I hadn't even thought of it from that angle I was thinking of it from the perspective of you know how do you entice your aspect you gotta be careful I guess of the hooks that you put for your character's like you have a librarian character and you also happen about y'all but I do this because I like the Santa Monica Voice I like it because I liked the sound of Your Voice to oh that's so sweet in the woods what is this and it turns out like he was like formulating an attack plan to try and destroy the the Mary Berry Tamera Oh that's true so there's things like that and then there's just a playing to the typical power fantasy as well like now they want to be involved in this so that in that way it's how is that similar or different from trying to bring in a hut real time see I hadn't thought of it that way and you're like what about this other thing over here and you're like but but this happening over here and the like but I'll do that as you the writer have this thing you want to happen man the character you're writing is all like why the fuck would I ever do that it's like that but played out choice so do you plan these ahead of time how do you how do you ensure that you're You dumb ass multiple you create multiple hooks okay yeah more than I don't I don't mean to rain a parade yon so what would you need let's say from us to to accomplish reader to WanNa keep reading because yet your players are playing 'cause they wanNA play a game that readers can just put down the fucking book but I hadn't thought of it in terms of the writing the have a tome of great worse your reader we saying they're being like why the fuck isn't the librarian going after that thome of great worth what like looking the sound of my voice so that's not clear now your voices lovely work over sobered Joel I wasn't going to be a Dick about it she's into and it's also an exercise in Illinois that whatever your character is doing in your work other shit is going on to other shits always going on because when you're deming you need to be aware of that in case the character selling goes Oh hey let's go see what's happening over there 'cause you need to know what's going on over there you've destroyed favor town and the last adventure last bit is you trying to get out you can still love it can still lose even after beating the big bad yes you need to start prioritizing things can you get out can you get other people out how many people can you get out do you still have advice well give you encouragement all that stuff and that's what leads ear to defeat guy fiery in a cooking uh-huh now because because the whole title of this thing is escape from flavor town through all the live long day here but I want to try and have a dramatic potential showdown it can go like a couple of different ways because you know player variability Oh chef cook off Mithra chef cook off to end all cook offs and that's where all these little coupons you've collected on the way as with all these people in it so good job breaking it hero again no because starting off at adventure everybody's in the bar somebody asks for rumors you know and then suddenly that that's when the the album starts playing and however by what was secluded flavor town what was keeping it up what was allowing it to so that you can kind of give a couple of options but like for instance when I was picturing it I was picturing like a iron chef of the artifacts can get out oh I do love it when you only get like a pyrrhic victory if you if you didn't get all the plugs sure like you you tend to have like little hints as to like Oh there's some trouble happening over here or there's always the classic way of college and then because of the magic of the Ziggurat or whatever he gets banished back to hell because you cooked that why not well before we go into that what are some ideas for the penultimate showdown because we could talk about plot coupons and little encounters imagine you like looking up like someday okay before we go into and out if you WANNA try and do a game section here fuck it food carriage out and then rolling down the side of Ziggurat a runaway cart yeah does anyone have access uh fun fact that isn't factored DND's fell and someday I'm going to learn it someday the title pippen I know right so maybe maybe you defeat die fiery through whatever means you cast him into the fire the advice from Julia Child Sell cell and Mu yes floating on your shoulders giving you good advice well you just go your own way Oh oh no I'm sorry I'm thinking mullany quote run upon it's almost impossible to get full success I love it Oh my God I love that I'm just picturing pip right now because of your suggestion they're the party throwing the severe bottleneck in the development of cooking now is in the world are now a power vacuum without guy fiery a good pain technically speaking you don't win nope because even after you've defeated air quotes Straw and you've escaped press things going on over there why the fuck isn't your character over there because they suck up that's usually the case but like in a typical adventure taking up in shipped how many are in your party Oh my God and people were all cooks too so have you in fact created a Steffi Jeff comes we we gotta are lighters and we start talking about what went wrong get to the end of all this and a to pull another direction it comes out with a monty python and the holy grail insurance out he's a vampire he's dead he comes back and the cycle that you were part of just keeps going and the people for over a become trapped again aw baby you know me thanks ladies in my head is not such a Dick that he would do that to her now now he's actually probably a nice guy in in this strange situation is doing what's a variety of reality show Oh what if you tame shift good job everyone else's dead Oh Julia Vin guilt forever Julia Child is dead did melon soon get out at you how many people could donate gave him a drink of water watt and so now he knows what he's missing when he share Eq yeah forgot about that characters of a reality show and it doesn't have to be terribly complicated it could if anything it's like bit he's just got a job to do I love the potential for pyrrhic victories here's my thing y'all my daughters all right so let us pretend briefly that and I 'cause I it's pointers for vampire module for cursive stroud from way understand having gone to look at it after I finished a like what you're actually escaping the escape from flavor town is not literal escape from a from the situation but now you have to deal with the fact that you are infected is or something or or or or one of the where they call script director or something script people knew who who's doing but like not your expectations and no matter how high or role they low low they roll go what seems okay l. well and then maybe the townspeople are free well it's it's funny mentioned the townspeople being free living in a constructed reality a Truman show if you will how many more references can I get in here and what you have to escape is you have to escape being the bit fame the Athol Greek myth fair fares in number on they she she made it worse for him and Haiti's that seems okay safe you think it safe oh that's an honest dangerous language there that's what us all I just heard about this one I watch a lot of critical role and the main big bad of their first campaign was doors characters that ascended to become main characters and you don't tell the players that's this entire time and they feel a little annoyed had in the back like increasingly cranky although I will say if you ever present a just table full of food to players fucking trap nine times Outta ten the time has a dungeon master they spent ten minutes trying to figure out how to open an unlocked door that sounds like it comes from experience Pippen applic- now just craft services table but they fucking ruin it 'cause they eat all of it and then that is what creates a horde of people show up yep crafts are less stable that's what it is and a but like there was noth- like there's nothing bad about it they thought maybe it was poisoned they thought there was around you had some you know some villains that they're fighting your instead of like the Black Knight you know it's a black Knight Lake fight but it's like one of the boom Ah Gui fiery may be based on a real person what yeah look I it's a stretch I just go with it go with for second day I know he obvious but you as dm no it so that later when it's all is revealed then the players can go back and go like Oh shit of course there is it's guy just a title you defeat guy fiery and you become guy fire oh no oh my God set way why like I killed some lowly production assistant Oh man not matching one of the big come across they're in their Demi plane of dread or whatever it is and if anything they've lost even more hope because it's at per seventy thing with tale a chair in the middle of the room everyone here's the thing he elaborately described the whole messed up room and mentioned there was a chair upright in the center that guy in the pool of water with the fruit just Alvis region but every transaction tantalus no tantalus was note but percents the I still remember the chair Ch- in which the dungeon master described an elaborate d there are elemental of flavor that is true the packet of summon flavored water feast at some point it's just a nice way point and you find out later it was like the green room table video production breakfast it was like nothing but mingles when that's when you make a dessert so heavenly ramp bump you go to heaven and then that's another plane and then ascends to a higher plane they become offended with it does it become the plane of a potential ending I gave a potential ending Alex what do you got Oh yeah I'm GonNa go with good ending 'cause fuck the what time it took three people to spells and someone to damage to open a door that was barred who it's a bit of one I mean come on sorry I'm not sorry no a guy fiery and the flavor town to start oh she would yes mary Berry probably does have the power to send you home with a nice lemon tar in your backpack that you find you live on the prime material plane there's the astral plane the plane of fire water earth law chaos and now slave the mental allows you to say a command phrase say for instance hey flavored water elemental man oh now the flavor through the surface Oh yes early early very early I love it her flavor I would wanna go there all my God I love it yeah totally and completely off the rails but now or a quick key you know what we never have done this we've never managed it play an a child shall lead them I mean did it have arms how nice this chair have as he got so annoyed with them because they kept asking well eight so I just pippen then there's a whole escape from flavor talented guy because if no you have plane shipped with fucking you're GONNA do still still skipping from flavor of town well that's waiver yes oh my God what an in the Andy there are multiple planes okay of existence distance you you live they can be told completely off the rails having a good ending in mind is like ninety percent of the word I mean to some degree yeah that's amazing man I love it okay I like these various endings and frankly when you have these so what happens when a kid shows added kid to the fucking story so if you get Master Chef Junior Oh my God aloe water elemental comes crashing through the nearest surface and fights for you but Brennan what what does it say when it comes through the later because she would do that yeah no and I mean there's already the packet of some and flavor elemental so oh endings and dislike aimed toward them hope for the best you'll probably hit one of these will work so a do we have time for the center and apparently he's been there that was just to show that the chair has been placed afterwards oh the someone had sat down to look at what the clock damn are as elaborate a little bit pip shift junior gel I don't have to ages it's fantastic see I made I made my child character make next check to get up onto a table you can probably find somebody who's nice and send you back home one would hope you'd five seventy who's Donald Dick there's all I'm saying well if he befriended Mary Berry towards you happen to have the wherewithal to ask her for it she's like yes of course yeah the trick is you have to ask grappling yeah sounds like he couldn't show for subsequent games who just there for that day so it's okay okay okay just disappeared tired of the city now it's like that food is poisoned we're just gonNA walk away to do always put something nice on there always put something nice that's the lesson I'm learning here yup the electric it's a mess with Malone before before where you guys can take I'm GONNA have Mabel show up in this town she's just always looking forward to trying out what or the player characters are cooking next as always your biggest fan started cooking related joke it's just a person who loves everything you do L. D. I mean like that's it you ruined about her for a good thing yup you cooked and I love that as a kind of a potential I try to cool off didn't so you made a dippers what you're saying if doc and she has waddles as an animal companion Oh my God everyone keeps trying to cook waddles yes that's how he I and bringing it back to two maybe are usually over that that's perhaps a useful thing to remember when writing figure out your ending figure out a couple whatever whatever it doesn't really catch much except in how your role playing it fared often wasn't that one guy in playing a child and then when he after player characters is like sixteen tops but sixteen in nome years which is like eight Oh emotionally he he collects merit pass associated with grappling gun yes I lost like a surprise grappling hook like you do not expect this from this character whatsoever and then happened but everyone was fix is there something under the chair and so let's talk about more about this chair was there a pillow on it taking get the bad and that's how you can get Mabel angry at you and if maples angry you you lose like it doesn't matter she will go and join guy fiery she gotcha trap that you can have like all sorts of warnings like the sweet innocent child is best friends with this pig it might be delicious maybe roll it inside check oh he rolled the Larry actually does remind me that does remind me of another dnd par not actually not another deity podcast in which one of the because again genre so you can't just like fuck around and not deal with Hansel and Gretel maybe this is the new adventure not fucking isn't okay Hansel and Gretel own yeah no you're getting actual oh bullshit that happens a lot and then all your maybe your spells work differently in your cooking junk work differently because you sweatshops until you and you had and so five hundred degrees perfect finally some good fucking food I'm sorry I'm just gonNa keep me over and over talking idea just keep on get a gang sniped you done fucked up kid esa deadly the Gordon Gordon Ramsay A- like ingredient in cooking ohka children in gingerbread God I never fail at the game why am I failing at this game the game portions always apart where I win I mean like you guys do okay to obviously so I was really thinking about you know went said a child shall lead them I thought it'd be pretty funny to have a just oh that could be a hag that you had to kill I love it I love it oh shit Hansel and Gretel in in Oh Brenston again why would also it represents a genre shift like if you like it'd be pretty funny is if you you know fell into a trap maybe of some kind and in that trap it's aided food problem hansel and Gretel but it's a John Shift so it's it's it's like fairy tale off to

GSMC Social Media Podcast Episode 200: Bieber, JLO, and Post Malone

"Golden state media concepts social media. podcast time to Hash Tag. Everything we talk about all the fun crazy stories on social media. Instagram facebook twitter to Tumbler. Probably even friendster join us as we explored the Quirky of social soon meets the golden state media concepts social media. podcast simple. It's simple though one. Welcome back to the GMC Social Media News. PODCAST I'm your host with the most. It's interesting about Bieber and his new young music video. Whatever your thoughts are with that? We're GONNA talk about that. I'm going to talk about my intense love for Post Malone I'm GonNa Talk About J.. Lo a little you bet and how you know she almost became a stripper. And we'll talk a little bit about Kylie Jenner. We're here to talk about the new new video that Justin Bieber just put out called Yami an new song music video for a couple of days ago and I I sat down to watch it and I was thoroughly confused as I am with most things these days I feel like I have a history history with being very confused. Let's get into it for has not released anything for us in four years. I and he broke that by releasing Yummy the single and the music video so he just Suraya He just announced a new album which he announced was going to tour and he also announced that he had had a new youtube documentary series seasons. That is coming out January seventh or January twenty seventh. Excuse me and and there will definitely be more songs about heavily besides Yummy. Even though if you're listening to me you wouldn't know about Haley because all he says yummy that's all that he says is just Yummy so we start the music video. He's he's wearing pink. He has pink hager he walks and sits down at a fancy table in front of a bunch of IMI wine house looking looking violin players even though he's at a fancy restaurant he's eating fries and Jello and he keeps doing this thing with his head like it looks like a ball ahead. He keeps winking and like doing things with his lips like his head is just going. It's it's going and if I were watching this or if if I were sitting at a table with Justin Bieber just winking at me I would text my mom to come pick me up. Because it's quite scary. He just keeps nodding his chin. That's like do you you are you okay dude. So right away. I noticed that he had on the pink. Kitty in the pink hair but he looks strung out. I'm not even going to front. He looks strung growing out my partner. Watch this with me and he said it looked like Justin in this video. Looks like eminem wherever EMINEM's started getting strung throwing out on drugs so basically in the song he's just you know you can't really gather anything anything from what he's saying but he's surrounded by a bunch of food a bunch of rich people and he keeps saying Yummy so apparently if you look what much will get. I'll read it for you. Yeah she's got that yummy Yum yummy Yum yummy yummy Yum yummy Yum Yami Yum yummy yummy. Say The word on my way your Babe Babe Babe any night any day. Say Say the word on my way in the morning or the late. Say The word on my way so we got this really hard hitting expose expose from Justin. You know it's just it's Golden Globes worthy. It's not it's really not. It's him sitting in the eating saying yummy being cracked out. Did say on the table and it kind of escalates into this fever dream type situation that we've found ourselves ourselves so many times in the past couple of weeks with cats and with John Laney in the sack lunch bunch. It just kind of doesn't make a a lot of sense. It really doesn't help that halfway through the video. His face starts like contour hugging and like stretching. Doing these weird things I had to blink was was like am I saying that correctly or his change us like grow three inches in his eyes. Got A googly. And it's just really weird doesn't make a lot of sense basically. It's three and a half minutes of Justin Bieber winking at me and cats walking across the table and a waste of time. That's that's that's what I think. He's releasing his first album since twenty. Fifteen his twenty fifth album was purpose and not being a Justin Bieber. Fan like like ever purpose was surprisingly a good album. You had sorry which was catchy. You had that one where he saying about his his Momma not liking anybody or liking everybody but not liking whoever he was talking about I think it was called. I don't like you but our anyone else herself. It was called love yourself and then he had. What do you mean what do oh you mean that one? What do you mean what it's called and it was it was good I can't believe that was five years ago. We have heard anything from him. Apparently he has a youtube documentary seasons. That's coming out about his life and everything I probably. I am not going to give it the time of day because I feel like he's Vapid and he has. Its he screams. First World problems to me and I'm just not interested. You know he dropped this single and music video on New Year's Day and when you hold that up to what's going on in the world I mean like the World War three trending thing no. It's not it Justin Bieber. You don't matter in the grand scheme of the world and I think that he has this idea in his head that he does matter and and I just don't vibe with it. Talk a little bit about Haley Bieber now so Haley Bieber who used to be Baldwin. She's the daughter of Alec Baldwin. After yummy was dropped and fans started making the connection between the lyrics and her. She spoke out on her instagram. About all the hate she gets and talking about how it's mentally damaging and and how everybody compares her to Selena and how that messes with your head. I just have to say for being in the spotlight for one being Alec Baldwin's daughter. I hadn't heard much from her. I still haven't heard much from her even after she married Justin Bieber and apparently she's a model she seems pretty humble Coming after Selena why she would get a lot of hate. Justin Selena were together for about eight years. You know there are still so many stands out there who think you know. No one's ever gonNA replace Selena but she haley holds herself with this kind of poise. I can't imagine what how mentally strong she would have to be to not only live in the public eye not only live in the public eye after Selena but also live in the public. I with Justin and having people say you know you're not you're not going to last you guys are GonNa last. You're too young. He still loves Selina. China you know and having people constantly compare you to your partner's previous partner like can you imagine that if your current partner if you had people on your instagram saying you know we like his ex butter like your relationship would be over stat in. I think this is another reason that social media is so damaging not only to your mental health but to you and your relationships with others more more specifically your relationship with your partner scrolling everyday and seeing you know oh so and so just got engaged or so and so's cleaning their wedding and look at that. Look at that diamond on her finger and do they. They went they. They vacationed in Bali. Or you know they just bought got this big house and you look and it's like you have the greatest you have the greatest partner you can have the greatest relationship partner. Who treats you like a queen you if you could get along so well you have such a thing going and you can look next to you or scroll through instagram and feel like shit because we live in a culture of comparison these days where social media is just so damning to your self confidence? Nothing is good enough because you're constantly instantly comparing your whole life unedited to somebody's edited best of real and it's just not possible to feel like you ever measure up a fuel for the squirrel living in the public eye and being with such a prolific and Controversial person being married to Justin Bieber. You know she holds herself pretty well. Oh I'd say for being married to him. Haley said that particularly after Selena released. Lose you to love me. Her single that she released towards the end of two thousand nineteen. She received a lot of hate because in that song. SELENA singing about about how she had to lose herself or she could lose her partner. Whoever she was talking about in that song we don't know fans can only assume it was justin to find herself again? And so you know. Haley got a lot of a lot of hate it. It's started stirring up the pot around that time I'm and she just she came out saying you know it hurts and it's it's it feels terrible to be torn. Apart on social media. People are super aggressive to her in response to comparing her to Selena and ch- It only imagine the inside of that relationship she must have to be a pretty secure person to deal with that stuff. I think it's a great testament to the strength of the people we see on TV every day because we can sit here and say all day long. Oh you know I wanna live in the lap of luxury and I wanna be famous and stuff but you don't really understand that whenever you live in the public eye nothing that you do is private everything you do. Every single move you make is up for debate and you'll be ripped apart if you read everything that people say about you. I can only imagine the struggle. It is to be somebody who's in the public guy when we come back. We're going to be talking about somebody else. WHO's in the public eye Mr Post? This man could literally early kick me in the teeth and I would say thank you. I love him so much. We'll be talking about him about what he has coming out about his his new tour and more stay here with us on the GMC. You won't be healthier yet.

He's he's from Grapevine Texas and I feel just such a kinship with him so he is kicking off the second leg of his is Hollywood bleeding Hollywood's bleeding. That's the name of his latest album. His kicking off the second North American leg for his tour on February fourth. And it's going all the way until March twenty first and tickets are on sale now if anybody is wondering you know I wear a size. Six Post Malone tickets so you know I wouldn't. I wouldn't Fret my address is and I'm just kidding. I would never put my address on the Internet but I want to see post Malone so quickly chop those charts man. He is on top of the charts quickly. After he released Hollywood's bleeding he topped the charts again and although there risk some variation he always ends up back at the top. He's last decades. You know artists to watch and I'm really excited to see what he releases is this year and I feel so close to him to Postie because he hails from Texas. If you guys didn't didn't know I broadcast from Texas and he is from Grapevine which is pretty close to me so I feel you know I got that to my advantage. She's from Texas. Our Texas people must be pretty cool in reference to Justin Bieber who we talked about on the last segment post Malone is going to be on Justin Bieber's new album along with Travis Scott and Cohen who I love Golani as well So so they part with post is all finished justin recorded and finished his part and now post to uh post his part so. I'm super excited for that. That means we get a new post song sued on exactly know when the album is gonNA drop or what it's called but it's supposedly called forever and given that. He's in love with his wife Justin achiever I wouldn't be surprised if it was called forever. Supposedly going to drop in March Yeah Post Malone is our own little local Legend Austin Richard Post Aka Post Malone Aka postie was born in New York. Want one but he was raised in Dallas Texas more specifically Grapevine taught himself to play guitar and produce music in high school and then dropped his own independent mix tape at sixteen sixteen. Know how any of you would not know who post malone is but if you need a little bit of a background. He sang that song. Sunflower are with sway Lee for the Spiderman into the spider verse soundtrack. And he also has sung. Congratulations and rock star and psycho personally my favorite song. My favorite post song is probably go flex or Stay he has a huge library of styles even though he is kind of like pop trap hip hop hip hip hawk hip hop. He's he can do rock. He Sing with Ozzy Osbourne. He does like cloud rap. He can do acoustic. He's super versatile and he has great vocals. You know his first single was white Iverson. which wasn't you know classically trap it was kind of a softer sound put on the radar. We'll silly for loving him so much because he's so mainstream and my toast. Oh my goodness eleven. My tastes my toasts. My tastes aren't necessarily mainstream. Are Like classic rock like Fleetwood Mac and I like aerosmith and and the like but I do get into you know my my music tastes are so versatile get into you know the top forty and it's because of him. I like his music and I think I like can. Because he's so funny. I often you know they I whenever I see things on Youtube. That's my biggest platform. I watch them in the videos that I watch in his interviews. He's funny. He did a hot ones challenge. You know the wing challenge it's hysterical in in the age of these celebrities having these luxurious lives. We're attracted to people who act like US and who are down to earth and end live the kind of lifestyle even other successful and brilliant artist. They live the same kind of lifestyle as US He posts things like you know medical today and it's like he has the exact same reaction that I would have if I met a Koala. He likes things that everyone else likes. You know he doesn't does it. Have to be having everything dripping and you know designer and at big fat mansions and stuff like people who are humble humble celebrities who are humble. It kinda lowers you know. It's it tightens the gap between. Oh were here and you guys are down there. You know if our favorite artists if they're humble and they listen Canalis we do. I like the people better. Because it's like oh I can vibe with that person you know. They're not some tenants. It's not the the original reason I chose to talk about post in this segment before I got carried away with my love for him was because he got a new face tattoo. He has so many tattoos over fifty tattoos and funny enough. Well I tied this episode so well together. He got his first Tattoo when he was on tour with Justin Justin Bieber and Justin's tattoo artists came through and he decided you know. I'm way tougher for the Justin Bieber. And he has now over fifty tattoos and tattoos on his face and stuff. You know it's post. He can do what he wants. He got a gauntlet of all things. He got a gauntlet. He has cards he has a nice. He has a little playboy tattoo and heart tattoo but he got a huge gauntlet right over his right ear. And you know if if nothing screams post malone more than a gauntlet tattoo. I don't know what does so that's the news. That's all I had to say about post Malone but I got carried away with how much I love him when we come back. We're going to talk about Jaylo.

So we're going to talk a little bit a little but about stripping where it came from the new movie Hustler Featuring J. Lo Kiki Palmer Lily reinhart Liz. Oh Doc and Cardi B.. What is stripping? That's a silly question. Everybody knows what stripping is but when did it become popular so in my early anecdote the earliest existing you know. Instance of stripping is in the Bible where in order to get what they want you know women would use their sexuality and you know. In a male dominated donated culture US set activity in their feminine wiles. To you know get what they want. I hear so many times women being put at fault for doing this. And you know men calling women whores and sluts because because they use their sexuality to get things that they want in this movie Hustler's which is Still in theaters. I think it might the dollar theaters or it might have just moved over to on demand. Video the ladies do exactly that these ladies all star cast strippers in New York. And they are actually they strip for the men on Wall Street so I assume their location is somewhere on Wall Street and they say you know these men. They robbed this country blind. And so who is anybody to tell us that we don't take what we deserve because the country this country plays plays by. Nobody's rules the people that play by the rules. Lose all the time. So who are we to sit back and let the people who have driven our country entry into the ground prosper. And I'm telling you after. I saw this trailer. Initially I was not invested in this movie whatsoever but after I saw this trailer and I saw J.lo's article you know I almost stripping mind changed I now I want to see this movie the and now I know what I'm probably going to do tonight not stripping. I'm not going to become a stripper and I'm not going to go to the Strip club but I'm incredibly interested in this side of the story. So stripping originated. There was seductive. Dancing turned into belly. Dancing turned into go. Go Dancing Insane and then turned into dancing for money and eventually you know people less and less close. It wasn't wasn't always dancing with no clothes on but it evolved and now strippers actually do get naked. Bottom line women women in this industry commonly called Strip I get paid to sexually titillate men by dancing. suggestively justice WLI as in as little clothing as possible without getting arrested and that is stripping. But why is it. Why women that strip? Why do men not strip in the obvious answer? Is People pay to see the female body and in a society where people pay to see the female body. How can you tell a woman that she is ashamed for? Taking off her clothes for money in a society where we put the female body on a pedal stool and we tell people. You need to look like this to to be successful. You need to look like this to be attractive in this. Not just men a majority of it is is men men covet. The female body men create great works of art an inspiration from the female body yet when it's turned around and women use it to their advantage. We become horse or so men say I feel like women are looked down for stripping because people are against a woman requiring something in return for his show -ality or sexuality and whether other this is a byproduct biproduct of society or whether this is a misogynistic idea are women looked down on for being strippers because they're degrading themselves or is it because people feel like they shouldn't have to two. They shouldn't offer this for money requiring something in return for sensuality or sexuality. Awadhi is bad because riddle me. This if if you're if you're a woman and you're using your best asset aside from from knowledge the way you want to because people have sexualize your body forever near finally taking advantage of the system how how is it not misogynistic for somebody to call you a whore. How is it not misogynistic for somebody to try and define what should make you feel degraded raided? Seems like it's not an issue for somebody to take what they want from a woman without asking when it comes to sexual assault or sexual violence or even domestic violence but as soon as a woman realizes the power lies in her hands. Oh no no no. Society is quick to say. Check yourself at the door honey. You're not classy. You know. Think about that. It's just it's food for thought we're going to be woken in twenty twenty. I mean I wouldn't be a stripper. I have to say there have been times in my life where things have been rough as. I'm sure for any any other person where it's you know. It's been like a thought you know man I could just I can make thousands. You know I can make it thousand in the week but I've never pursued it. WHO's to say you know somebody who did try and pursue? It is lower lower than me so weighed in on this and she said she nearly turned stripping when she was trying to get a foot in her career career. In Hollywood in the new movie hustlers Jaylo plays a role Ramona in in Hustler's and it scored her a Golden Globe nomination the nation so she sat down in an interview and she admitted she nearly became a stripper. She said there was a moment in her life when her friends who were also dancers told her about making thousands of dollars at clubs in New Jersey so similar to hustlers she was a New Jersey. Whereas Hustler's was in New York they said you won't be topless? It sounded good when she was broke and eating pizza over to every day but she never did it because she was a little bit nervous. Jaylo Taylor says that playing remoter was empowering intriguing so intriguing that she didn't even accept payment for the row she worked produced host and start in that movie four for free. HUSTLERS is a lady driven female empowerment movie showing women taking the the power back into their hands in scheming. The system and that is my favorite pastime working the system. Why do you have to sit? Sit there and be a victim to a system. That doesn't serve you this week. I'm talking about scheming. The system and I'm talking about privacy and I probably probably won't be here next week because the government's GonNa come after my but anyways when we come back we are going to be talking about Kylie Jenner and what the heck is going on with that new photo she released. Apparently she's appropriating culture yet again and it's January fourth so we'll a jump into that and more when we come back on the GMC social media. News podcast I want to find out what movies to go see and check out the GMC movie podcast. It's your ticket to the latest movies whether it's a new blockbuster event romantic a comedy or action flick. This show has got it all covered. They talk some what to go. See Now don't bother.

Don't forget to like them on facebook. You can follow them on. Twitter visit G. S. M. C. PODCAST DOT COM for more INFO mm-hmm. They it took twenty and already already one of the cardiac chiens sash. Jenner's has been accused of cultural appropriation. This time Kylie Highly Jenner. She well she's she's done it before she she's definitely had some cultural procreation claims in the past. But mostly it's been sister. Kendall Jenner Kylie Jenner star of keeping up with the Kardashians life of Kylie and main creator creator of her new makeup line Kylie cosmetics as under fire again for a previously unseen picture from past photo. Shoot on her instagram in this picture. Kylie's hair is dyed blonde and put in unwraps a protective african-american hairstyle and put put in to pony tails in a messy bun type form automatically. People are in an outrage. Telling her that there she's appropriating black hair and I'm tired. I'm honestly tired of the call out. Culture it's old. It seems it's just carry. It seems like it's anybody will find anything to be angry about these days. And the reason I say this about this particular take your issue is because Kylie Jenner's makeup and hair team decided to create this look based off of Gwen Stefani and the old you know her. As you cou style that she used to inhibit and in that case. You know that if if this is a problem that should be a problem in the fact that this wasn't a problem ten years ago. Why is it a problem now? If gwen Stefani was using you know hair and makeup and fashion inspired from hairs you coon Tokyo hot mature in the two thousands. Why isn't the problem now? I feel like Americans instead of realizing you know. Fashion in style is drawing from all of these different cultures. And that's what style and fashion is. They just find a reasons to get mad at each other and it is exhausting to be a part of that culture. Selma Blair star of legally blonde recently posted another picture of herself and was dragged for for the same thing. Only some Blair was wearing a harrap. So Saul Blair has. Ms which is an autoimmune an disease. She's always feeling sick. Always vomiting. You know can't move. Can't even speak and Lou has lost her hair because of it so she posted on instagram. A picture of her hair in a soak rap and people just bombarded her for it for cultural appropriation. She her in the in the picture was Rachel Fleet Be She alopicia. She was also wearing a hair rap and the the instagram posts said the caption was. We have one in answer to your bad hair days or no hair days alopicia wraps it's been around for thousands of years and people automatically clearly you know cultural appropriation. And it's not brilliant and it's not cool We WanNA appropriate this and make it trendy you you know we. We don't get to do this. You guys don't get to do this. And it's like wearing a so grab because you don't have hair is imitating heating. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Now and finally enough silk silks absorb negativity and diffuse it so none of these comments are relevant. Would they rather her wear an itchy wig. And it's just like at. What point will people stop being angry ready for no reason the plight of not being able to embrace? I say I understand. Do not understand it. I see you why people are angry because had a black American tried to wear this hairstyle to work there would be you told to go change it and make it more presentable now. Is that true today. Notes not black. I'M NOT GONNA say no. It's not because I would get just as angry. If people were trying to defend men in the workplace and say that you know the workplaces equal for men and women it's still is not one hundred percent equal the workplace is still not one hundred percent equal for blacks and whites and all other minorities. Are there instances where a black person will still get told. Go make yourself more presentable. If they wear a hair wrap or a scarf. Yes is that disgusting. Absolutely should it be that way. No it shouldn't but to say that somebody cannot wear their hair in a rap because it's cultural appropriation. And that were trying to make it. Trendy Andy Field is a little bit overkill. Honestly the United States was made to be a melting pot of different cultures. Here's and different styles. Different religions ethnicities. I think there is not harm in embracing the styles of other cultures albeit. If they're not religious or you know sacrificial in any way but where your hair and in a braid you know. How far are we GONNA go being angry at people before we realized that imitation is the highest form flattery? You know I'm not gonNA wear an African. You know religious ceremonial dress and try and pass it off as you know. Oh I'm just trying to draw from another culture but if I want to put braids in my hair you know not corn rows. Although I'm just I'm drawn on the issue how when are we going to stop getting mad at each other for you know trying different styles and I know I have no room to speak because there's nothing and even somewhat draw from white culture and I think at the end of the day it should be looked at as a celebratory Tori thing you know people having your culture B so beautiful that people want to incorporate a tribal print on and their dress or you know want to try a hair wrap you know tastefully. So that's my two cents on cultural appropriation. Let us know what you think. When is enough enough when we come back? We're going to be talking about Tick Tock and major privacy concerns that are coming up stay here at the GMC Social Asia Media News podcast always on the go but the day just the people without your Hollywood golden state media concepts that are ten. PODCAST take care of that Jordan and Keith entertainment tonight meets access access Hollywood. I'm Jordan guy laughing all inclusive look pop culture yeah Tech talk is in the world of social media the new shiny toy for hall all of the teams kids and even adults. I downloaded tick tock and I have not cleared it from my phone yet. It's the latest in highest is download. It's an APP. That's quickly gaining notoriety in the social media world. It's a way for people to have fun and be creative and expressed breasts themselves kind of more than other APPs in the past have allowed. There are several different features and filters and add ons and installments that that are constantly making the the APP accessible and interesting for its users but admits all of this buzz. Tech Talk has flown relatively under the radar with privacy concerns until about a month ago. And it's been out for a little bit so there has been concern popping up lately about the APP safety and Tyler. My lovely boyfriend has been telling me you know. I'll ask him. Please download take talk so you can share funny videos. I don't want them taking my information nights pysche posh yes tyler. You told me so. We're GONNA talk about it so some. US lawmakers are now saying that tick tock could pose a national security risk by asking intelligence agencies to investigate the company's ties to China. Yeah this week this past week the. US Army Band soldiers from using in downloading tech talk because it could potentially expose personal data to unwanted users tied back to China so ABC news reached out to talk and they directed ABC to to the company website. Were said that tick talk. Is Aware of quote ongoing questions about the content moderation in data security policies. The company says it's been taking a number of actions to preserve the trust of its users like being transparent. It tells you right away that your data is being shared but also they said by building a team with US leaders and storing years data in its center outside outside of China. Many people say that it's important to be aware of anything suspicious. No matter the APP. So yes the privacy concerns have been a huge buzzing issue lately as some of you. May you know I talked about it on the recent TV. PODCAST facebook instagram twitter. Most of the social media APPS APPS that we use they gather data on us and it's a scary scary thing. I'm hitting all the hard hitting you know privacy topics and I joked you know the luminosity that the Pentagon is gonNA come. Get me for like talking all this deep security aid staff but you have to be careful about what you post people. Joke that those quizzes or those those face. There's there's this new trend This week on instagram. where it's like an APP someone earn on an apple filter someone created needed and you tap on it and it shows you like a list of like what hogwarts character you from Harry Potter and you put your face in their uses face facial recognition and it gives you a character that you most are like has no correlation to actually are its randomly generated in there are l.? Like ten ten of these that have come out in the past couple of days and people joke you know a ha ha ha the. NSA has my face for now and May and with all of the you know scare about having you know cameras watching us and having you know your FBI surveillance agent checking in on you through your computer camera. You know people joke about this but it has to come from somewhere in and this is what a scary these big social media brands they take your profile and the stuff stuff you click on and they share it the share your data. They share the stuff you like you know and they sell it. They sell our data to brands. Hands Marketing brands that can use curated data so that they can update their algorithms rhythms to see what we like. And it's kind of scary like our data and and our our information is out there for example mince drops tyler. Sent me this thing last night. That said you know these minstrel APPs where women can keep track of their menstrual cycle. They're using data from women to inform third parties about our lives and in what we need and in. What's happening when like like if I'm putting you know my cycle started yesterday I'm having act me I was sexually active or I was grumpy. You know like these third party APPS or these third party you know users. They have my data now about what I was doing when I logged in on the APP put my name removes what I like to eat. What what age I am you know in? Then they have personal sensitive information like my sexual activity or when my cycle started. If I'm trying trying to have a child it's it's scary. It's scary and there was a recent story on just how far technology is going talking about how schools are starting to incorporate you know Bluetooth tracking into their students web-based student portal and so every time they walk into the room. The Bluetooth will pink to the phone APP. And say you know this student was here at a certain time and Some students really don't like this because it's like why are why are we still being treated like we're children. Why are we being tracked and followed? And why are people trying so hard to put their thumb down to figure got where we are. Why are we under people's thumb? That's what I was trying to say. And you know whenever people get watched like this. It's America you know the land of the free and everything but when people start becoming aware that they're being watched you know actions change. And why would anybody want to go to school. Why would anybody want to use these APPs if they fear their privacy is at risk and there's the the social relevance events algorithm that is like you need to stay socially relevant? You need to download this APP and keep it in. It's scary it's marketing. It's marketing to get our information formation. So be careful about what you download. I know that I'm going to sit down and go through my apps. Make sure to turn chairing off. Make sure you do your research because we have no idea what really goes on with these APPs and what we're sharing with with the world until something bad happens when we come back. I was unsure about what topic I wanted to do for for my six segment my sixth and final segment so I decided to go online to a random topic generator and it asked me me if I became president while the question was if you became president what is the first thing you would do so I will answer this question. My random podcast topic generator question when we come back stay here on the GMC Social Media News podcast the GMC live than happiness. PODCAST takes you.

I was having a little bit of trouble figuring out what it wanted to do from my last segment so I went to a random topic generator and it gave me. What's the first thing you would do if you were elected as president and I thought long and hard about this and I decided that after kicking you know our current president out of the White House rather quickly I think I would give paternity and maternity leave three months at least two two new mothers and fathers you know at least a month would be great if more and I think beyond that I would allocate more funds to the arts because the arts often get up put behind sports and and arts are important you know are two part of entertainment just as much as the football games are and so I would allocate more funds to keep you? You know art programs alive in schools because art is important go without TV for a week and tell me I'm wrong. That's really all I could think go.

I've been looking forward to this interview. Because i read the book a few months back and would love to hear him talk a little bit more about his story but before we get there how about we catch up on each other's lives amber. It's been so long since i last hosted with you. So what's new with you. Honestly i feel like there's nothing very much new with me. We have been plagued by so much sickness midsummer we've had are as the A summer cold allergies issues like every two weeks. Something has been hitting us. We had so many vacation clams in. It's like yeah. Maybe it's just better stay here because it's better than taking the chance of getting somebody But yeah just stuck here in oklahoma right now all the heat. I think today's heat index is a hundred and ten degrees. So we're gonna stay inside but you guys moved right. You're no yes so. We packed up in fort. Leavenworth back in may and then we moved to fort stewart in georgia. So yeah we moved a little bit further south in are getting kinda settled in and used to all of that the weather too. It's pretty hot here as well. And you know we're just like i'm from pennsylvania so it's like this is this is very hot. Yeah for sure definitely different type of heat in the south for your museum. It's it's been nice because you know everybody kind spends their time inside then instead of spending much time outside but then when it would be cold and other places it won't be here so then we'll spend a lot more time outside doing all the fun things that is a trade off it. That fall weather down there. She's perfect for outdoor activities even in the wintertime Yeah and we have kids going back to school in a couple of days. actually so. that's extra exciting. Everybody needs to go back to routine. It's already type of school to start. Yeah i know it's it. I couldn't believe how quickly it came up with the move and everything that was like a good month of our time because we were in limbo for like three weeks until household goods came so a month for us from the end of school was just gone before we even knew. It doesn't even seem really really just started this year. This is crazy. My mind is blown right now. Oh yes so that'll be creevy Going back to school. Getting that time with their friends are meeting new friends. I guess for your kids yeah. That's i think what they're most excited about is. Everybody is inside because of the heat. So it's they haven't seen as many neighborhood kids outside to be able to play so they're very excited about who's going to be at our bus stop and who in my class. Are they going to be in you. Know overlapping where the classmate lives right near us. So we're in a really nice development. So i'm hoping that once once they get that chance at the bus stop they're going to be like all right.

Ben is an experienced military veteran with over twenty years of service in all facets of the. Us army twenty. Your letter in afghanistan chronicle is his debut literary work and its genesis was nearly two years in the making. The original intent of this collection of short stories was to leave a legacy for his growing family. But it soon morphed into something much more. Ben is currently in the final assignment of his military career serving as a command and general staff college instructor where he instructs mentors and develops the next generation of us army field grade officers. Ben welcomed army wreck talk radio looking forward to our conversation today. Well i really loved reading your book. It was a fascinating peek into life of military service members during those earliest deployments. Right after nine eleven. So i'm curious. Why did you decide to write this book. A absolutely So the book burning kind of. I call it my my midlife crisis you know. I didn't go by the the fancy car. Basically a one day you know. I wrote over twenty years of service not having done twenty years of active duty. They issue in the national guard reserves the twenty year letter on and there was a lot of anticipation for me getting this letter. Literally it shows up in the mail one day in it's eight and a half by eleven sheet of paper and it was completely underwhelming almond. I kinda thought to myself like. Do i want my twenty years of service to the about justice piece of paper You know having a not starting to family till later in life. I didn't have my first child till i was thirty. Three on understanding how pigheaded. I was growing up like i need to write something down for my kids Because they may not be interested in in what dad did wall. I'm still capable of telling them about right. That makes sense. And i. I think that's really cool That that was kind of your motivation on a variety of fronts. It wasn't just like hey. I wanted to tell the world about my experiences but it started out as leading that legacy in sharing that because it was so interesting. I think your book is very unique in that regard. I wanna know. How long did you writing take. It took every bit of two years. But i'll say it was two years of like starting stop so i started with you know from the beginning of how i got to the army like. That's where i kind of started my. I got about thirty pages into writing. And i'm like this is really dull and boring so the necessarily looking at like short stories. Like hey those those that story at the bar you tell like you know. I've never been one of the kind of share a whole lot. But like if i was for taking a few too many alcoholic beverages and someone asked me a story like what what's tale you itself. I'm santana's started writing short stories and then literally one day. I looked at him. I'm like oh my gosh. Like this is sexy. Start become together. You know i could start sectioning it on the out what it looks like. And that's kind of where it grew legs so tell me about how the publishing process went. It was really done on a whim so back in twenty twenty. Actually let me go back before that so my wife got pregnant again with child number five and i was like oh my gosh i have five kids which was not the intent at all but then i was like man. I need to get the lead out here because you know. I'm about to be in baby child boat type thing. You know the whole time to finish this. So so buried down. He got to work hard and then covert hits and ironically in april of last year. I got cova. I'm this was like right in the beginning of everything. So you know my wife is pregnant. i've got cova. She banished me to the bedroom right. You know don't come out yet. Stay away from everybody so literally. I was able to finish while add cova. Wow that's that's a blessing in disguise for you. That's pretty it's pretty incredible walsum for the first two days like i could not keep my eyes open for and then after that i started feeling a lot better. I'm an my wife's got covert but but saw the story there. But i was able to come out of the bedroom sent the manuscript out while i was fourteen and my bedrooms and it's crazy and i sit out color publishing and didn't really think thing over. Like hey this is a shot in the dark on my rigid edit really well i just had to say that this is me and a couple of weeks later i got an email from from a young lady who said hey i've been assigned to take a look at your manuscript in the kind of go from there and then three days later she mailed me and said hey we really like to talk to you about publishing this book why it took off from there. That's so neat. What a process. What an experience in. What a great story. It's not just. Like hey i found an agent and here we are no. I was quarantined and then took shot in the dark so with this process. Is there anything you wish you had done. Differently said to me. This was like a very internal and very personal thing That i didn't share with anybody. Like i didn't communicate with previous peers from the army. I didn't talk to old friends. I honestly i wrote this thing in the shadows dark that my wife didn't even really know what i was doing Because it was just very personal. And i'd say kind of embarrassed by it but you don't know any good at it so for me what i done differently is. I just wish i'd been a little more proud of what i was doing. You know like. I said i. I wanted to do this for my kids. You know. I wasn't the person that i want them to be. Be proud of what you're trying to do. Well i think the gab. I i totally understand where you're coming from there. But i think it a lot of us can identify with that with some of the some things we do for the first time like. I don't know if i want to share this with the world. Is it quote good enough or you know. Is it my best. Or am i super proud of this and i feel like obviously hopefully now. You are super proud of it because it is a great a great right great. Read a great story you know and of course it's all true and it's really really fascinating especially from the perspective of military spouse because obviously i haven't you know for me personally. I haven't been deployed. I probably will never be deployed and especially. We can't go back to those early early days in so it's a very different dynamic and really a peek into that unique experience as someone that went through it so many years ago now absolutely abs. The very beginning of everything was kind of fun but hit one more point here. I mean i remember i. I texted my mom. Like siri null. Because i don't need my mom. So she sends me an email text Address and i. And i sit her the manuscript over and i put at the bottom of. Don't tell anybody keep other l. mom. And then i call her like two days later and heard my stepdad or sitting there living room. They've they've gone to staples print of the manuscript rough draft. And they're talking to me about it so it was really cool transition piece. That's really neat. That's really cool. So with this tradition with this experience. What was the best part of publishing in. Why do you think publishing was important for your journey so to me it was again i. I didn't talk to anybody when i started to do. It's but when i started the publication process. It gave me an opportunity to kind of reach out to those people again that i had connected within years You know i. I wrote about three powerful mentors in my life. You know the first. When i reached out to and i'm like hey matt he's a. I'm an instructor. The general staff officer college integral matt broadest now retired is actually a civilian. That works there. So i found a way to reach out and connect with him. And you know. I'm like you may not remember being. Of course he's like you human. Jimmy poke captain pope that i mentioned the book. Isabel awesome making that connection Captain pope who is honestly like you know. He is the beacon probably at my military career. I com cap. You never got promoted again. And he actually got out of the military but him. And i would say rack together after this is over with. I tell the story of being like i would go to. Helen's like the devil with the snap like that's how much care for him. And how marina leader that. I thought he was so it was just a great opportunity to connect with people that you know those gaps you leaves on you know one thing that the military has or all of us have is. We have these lifelong relationships with people. And i mean it's it's that friend that you may not talk to for ten years or five years or whatever the hell it is but you can pick it up like it's nothing. Because of that bonding experience you share with each other so that was honestly the best part of it. That sounds really familiar. Not necessarily for me but you know mainly for my husband. Because he's not a writer but that battle buddy connection mentality and maybe it's just a dude thing maybe it's a battle buddy thing you know. It's amazing how he'd be like. Oh yeah. this was you know. I deployed with such and such my first deployment back in you know four or whatever and they haven't talked just what you said for ten years and he'll dislike cinema facebook messages like. Hey you're at fort bliss. Let's go out for a beer or let's get together gopher run and i'm like it's been ten years and yet they just pick it up like it's been nothing does really cool that you had that opportunity do that as well with kind of your top. Three mentors of those folks that you mentioned in the book and had such a big impact on you in your military career and the really cool thing to it just tells. What kind of fraternity is so so being an instructor kind of the end of my career on a couple years ago. I got the opportunity to teach congressman. Brad is a physician the army Obviously us member of congress. I'm you know. I texted him out of the blue. Like hey can you help me out here and you know just even that connection with them abbott. Spokane you take a look at it. you know. And the congressman was absolutely fantastic. I sent them a copy of the manuscript in read it's You know for endorsement quotes rally can help you the thing going. And that's the awesome thing about service so you didn't have that experience from the past but it was like that sooner friend that i was easy to grab easily able to grab hold up and say hey bright can. Can you help me out here. And he absolutely did and the really cool thing about the story does not sat to hijack it. Here's your i remember. He called me after. I'd asked him to do it's And he was actually in the washington. Dc as ordinary to certify the election results from a few months back in. He's actually walking me through on the phone his rational why. He's going to vote the way he's gonna vote and i'm like this is something that the average person never gets to see brain and it was so awesome like it was like i was in awe after that conversation honestly writing the book. That could have been the best part. Write the book. What an interesting experience and how. That's kind of come full circle to modern day. Just i guess insight and blessing to what you're doing as a servicemember but also as now a published author and the connections that you've made and the support you're getting from really some you know big name endorsements which is really really encouraging very exciting for me as a reader but of course probably for you as an author as well. No i say absolutely i guess between him. I'm reached out to major general richard. just retiring. He was my signed commander in years ago. And i'm like hey. Can you help me out here. My brigade commander. Who was like absolutely. I kicked him the manuscript in and he read it's amino email wishes that he sent me back here members officer room that i held the florida national guard years ago. His wife and daughter hung out like help support fee. So again i just. I just love the community with the military whether you're active duty. National guard reserves a community.

Welcome back. we're continuing our conversation with lieutenant. Colonel ben warner military veteran author of twenty. Your letter and afghanistan chronicle. Ben tell us. What was your favorite part of the book. My favorite part of the book is just the feedback. That i've gotten people that have read the have experienced similar those similar items And some of them kind of caught me out of the blue john. Laney from dod reads read my manuscript. And then he kind of replied by outside. He was talking about the story that i tell them the book about the dog that we had as part of our kind of informal mascot and how when he was overseas that kind of done the same thing Or the people that talked about the pogs of the fake money that they gave you at the px or showering ankle deep water. Just the little things that people from those years ago just understand. I'm so a lot of the people that i've spoken to a lot of the message. Kinda resonates with him of. Hey i can't remember that it. It kind of sucks The camaraderie in the most unexpected places. That's really neat. Well as others maybe be are branching into this. What recommendations would you give to others. Just just do it. It doesn't hurt anything again. I go back to continue to the command general staff also college and we push our filbert officers are majors when they get there right published. Do and everybody's always commit about it. Nobody wants to do. It's on my recommendation. Just try it. We have so much to share and so much to tell and to be honest with you. That's going to be lost if we don't do it. You know. I remember being a young. Pfc specialist you know a few years after the first gulf war and you know you had the gas combat patches in you kinda looked at that with a reverence and then we went along time period and then nine eleven at now. Everyone's got that experience. Now you know as the forever. War in afghanistan is transitioning donald. You know we're transitioning afghanistan work or the last legacy for that conflict also. We can't be afraid to share. Its yeah and even as you mentioned with your own experience kind of even if you don't it loud and proud right at the get go just what you mentioned kind of being like nike. Just do it and then see what happens. Get it down capture. Those thoughts captured his experiences. And then whatever happens happens but at least it exist. You know like you know. We talk about that a lot of military spouses. Sometimes we have no idea what we're doing and we're like all right. We're just go with it. It is what it is. Just do it scared. And see what happens and i feel like that applies to hopefully probably our listeners on a variety of france and so really really salient wisdom And so we mentioned in your bio that this was initially just planned to be a little collection of short stories and as we say it escalated quickly. So i'm curious. Are you planning on writing. Another book or books plural. So right now i'm looking at sue. Thanks i tell. The story of by iraq experience was was afghanistan was the crown jewel in wonderful iraq. Experience was hell on earth to be honest with an. That's the one that i really wanna write about But a lot of the experiences. I had there were very sensitive and i hate to say. They're very political type in nature. So i think that was a great place starts on loved to get to that at points. I've also started looking to is the world goes crazy. I i keep going back to my kids. I'm really starting to think about doing something along. The lines of Old proverbs that you see out there you know or just old saying that. I grew up with that. I have just been lost in translation as as the world has changed social. Media's become what it was then we've lost our way side so know. I feel like a lot of what i wanna to do. Is for my kids like this. These are life's lessons from that. You know up some seriously started kind of dabbling with that last little bit. Just kind of figure out what it's going to be. You know my wife did have the baby. She's turning one or just turn one so now. It's that piece of you know she stables. She's sleeping through the night and now it's time to get back to of that next passion. What's the what's next. We got through the rough newborn transition the adjustment to five kiddos and the publication of book and making it through the cova craziness so it's very exciting. What's next for you. I have a gut feeling that this is not gonna of course the last year from you especially as you get ready to even transition out of the military and Move onto the next thing. Whatever that looks like with especially you're writing journey because figure a man of many talents not only with your career and your experiences as a reservist and being deployed and now working at You know as an instructor and also is an author since it can be very interesting to see how this all shakes down. And i'm i'm very excited to cheer you on from the sidelines. Wherever we're stationed as well so as we as you wrap up our conversation ben. Can you remind our listeners where they can go to find. Even more empowering information about your book and your veteran author journey especially for looking for future books coming out later so right now again michigan previously twenty year letter with the two zero as numerals dot com. That's of i'm housing. A lot of the military type themes of stuff that i'm gonna write on my also recently registered through substracted. Start writing some pieces that way. So it'll be been dot warner at substrates that we can do some stuff. That's not necessarily military related again. That i think that goes back more of the journey that i wanna get into his father. Accent will very excited to see what comes for you and you know as weak as we conclude our conversation today as you know our primary mission here at army life network empowerment and so we always wanna hear when empowerment means to our guest.

Talk radio today awesome. Thank you so much for the opportunity and thanks for your readers have devoted to this or your listeners. Absolutely so now we're gonna cut back to our host to hear. They thought of our conversation with today's guests. Lieutenant colonel ben warner giving you all the tools and setting you free to fly. I love that. There was no hesitation in his response and he said it was such certain team so a huge. Thank you to ben warner for. Not only sharing about his book twenty year letter but for also sharing glimpse into his lengthy career in the united states army as well as his dip into author hood. Not sure if that's really a word. But let's i think it should be if it hasn't. It should be again if you would like to connect with ben. You can find him on his website. At ben warner dot sub stack dot com when twenty year. Letter dot com. Remember that numbers. Two zero year letter dot com or by searching ben warner on linked in. And don't worry if you didn't catch those we'll have them linked directly in our show notes posted on army wife network dot com amber. What did you think of the interview. I honestly That it was amazing. I really appreciated the overlap of the twenty years of been surveys. With the end of the twenty years of operations in afghanistan is pointing about telling the stories of development is so important for sir not development but deployment is so important for servicemembers that deployed in support of the global war on terror. Because they truly are the last legacy of that conflict deployments. they're no longer to those areas so the experiences that the soldiers have in their stories to be told are from the of course. The ones that were there. And that's what makes it so authentic in just so touching to hear of those times that they had that they free in. Hopefully soldiers today will have to go through your. That's a great point. And i think there's so much that we can learn to from those experiences of the people who were there with ben. You know he was there for. He's been in the military for twenty years so that entire time. How much has he learned because he was enlisted first and then he took the officer. He's seen a lot of various sides. Also i think he was national guard or reserve at the beginning and then transition to active duty. So there's a lot going on there that he has as a takeaway. And i think that ben is such an authentic storyteller and it was interesting for me to hear his voice and have him talk about the book. Because i read it. As i said earlier i read it a couple of months back and he truly rights as he speaks so hearing him talk. It was like. Oh i've i've met this guy like i. I know him and the the book unfolds like a conversation. You would have over a couple of drinks. And i think he mentioned that Something like that earlier in the interview as a goal of this book to sound not really so stuffy but to just sound like hey we were having a couple of drinks. Let's have a conversation. And that realness gets reeler with some of his stories about the suck of the deployment You know deployments are never fun by. I laughed when he was sharing about the showering in ankle. Deep water and the bathrooms because people really bond over those shared experiences of the suck. Right you know the the the bad experiences of what we couldn't avoid it. That type of thing are the stories that you can look back and laugh on. And i think that those are good experiences for those soldiers to remember it shares. Well absolutely like you said to share them in. That's those experiences they think are what tend to come up when servicemembers relive their deployment days with each other. It's like oh hey you were at this base. I was there to remember. X. y. z. That happened or you know what the structure was like that they lived in or something and i also connected with with him with the idea of doing something that you'll be so proud of but not yet wanting to share it with someone else until it's completed and i just i would love to read something else by him sometime in the future. Oh absolutely it. Keep on writing. Ben because everyone knew right we'll go ahead and read so just keep them coming more as that was such a great interview and for now.
