First Trial in U.S. College Admission Scandal to Begin in Boston Court

"Morning in boston opening arguments in the college. Admission scandal trial from member station. Gbh in boston kirk care. Pezzo reports that dozens of parents including celebrities have been charged with corruption and pleaded guilty in the case but until now no one has been tried to dad's former casino executive gamal abdelaziz and private equity adviser. John wilson are still fighting the charges in court. The defense will argue that these two dads thought they were playing. Within the rules of a shadow system perpetuated by colleges in which rich people donate to schools to help their kids get in and that is a strong defense from two thousand feet federal prosecutor. Jeffrey cohen says this marks the first time this system of greasing the wheels for elite has been put to the test. We're really going to have a jury of regular people who probably try to get their kids into college. At some point deciding what went on here the prosecution will depend on wiretapped conversations

That show is still on. But it's it's like gun smoke you know. It's like a fifties still going. It's something that it's still on because you're going to have a job where you need to watch it. Yeah and now. I'm basically a doctor so so you watched fourteen season of grey's anatomy. That's incredible and on my dime. I was paying you waiting. I sound to tell me like if you need a lunch or something right. I'm watching chicago. Hope right now. I don't know it. Just it's tom. That's a big competitor. Grey's anatomy i don't and then it went away after like a year whereas or i don't know these shows that are on conventional television channels two four seven. When's the last time i stumbled onto one of those always on some streaming platform watching Show actually my weird european shows with subtitles. To and then after i watch them i feel like i know the language i was watching that. How language works. I was watching some show. I forget what it was but it was on net flicks and it was this foreign obscure show with subtitles and it was like dutcher something that after a while. I realized this is just grey's anatomy. They've just coming in through the side door. It was very similar people and and it was really no difference. They were just. But i was giving it all this crap. Yes it had subtitles. it's much better. I watched call my agent which is in french summertime which is an an italian and then i also had watched money highest which is in spanish and i really feel like after i'm done with all those shows that i can speak all those languages fluently i exactly i watched the bureau and money heist and i felt like yeah. I'm just a classics enthusiast. I got all the romantic which is down. You know what happens. I watch those shows. I watch shows like that like to watch on a treadmill and I'm running at full. Tilt and i'm reading that tiny. You know subtitles going by and my eyes are like on fire. By the time the show is over because my head's bouncing up and down. Because that's how i run i lo- p- more than i run like a great wildebeest mentioned full tilt to didn't you. You just have to like make sure everybody knew ends the toughest one select. I mean for me. Full-tilt might not be for you know an olympic athlete full-tilt tilts yourself to pick an olympic athlete running. I'm my fast walk. Feels to me. Like full tilt yes any who we're learning about you. David nothing about david. david quickly. Just tell us you think this is going to be an easy job. I think so. I don't. I'm not a demanding guy. Am i know. I think emotionally demanding. But i don't ask for a lot of stuff i've also after five years. Never seen you get mad. We'll not really mad. I get fake mad all the time. That's room. I get fake mad constantly. Yeah but not like a. You're not a yeller. you don't throw things. I'm going to though now. Why why would you do that. Conan when you come back i feel like david old understand and david you quickly tell us your obsessions. I know that you're obsessed with disneyland disneyland. I haven't been back since they reopened but david will. There was a story halfway through the pandemic about someone who broke into disneyland and went to that island expanding the island and was living there and the workers at disneyland found him and i sent it to you and said david was this year much. David hopping loves disneyland. And britney spears ideal. I'm curious had you thought of it. Are you the type of person who would have broken into disneyland. Lived on that island for bit now.

"Point said some stuff that was against america and like i keep working the story worse and worse and worse so i'll spend fifteen minutes on that and then i'll say oh and by the way the medication that keeps me alive. I'm completely out of that. Yeah i don't lead with the most important things you have to be patient and listened to my bits. Okay can do that so many beds what do you do. I just sit there. I literally just sit there and just listen to it okay. That's all you can do. I think david's asking them much more intriguing. Question is what is it you do. Oh i don't mean just with one more. I'm telling you a story because that's occasional but when i'm around putting a show together crafting a comedic sensibility. That will guide a generation to higher heights. What are you doing. That's a good question and you know. There's there's things that i should be doing and then there's things that i do so i think those are two completely different ideas that you have. That was very good. You just if you were in front of the senate being grilled they would not be able to mazing. Isn't that amazing man. It'd be doing and there are things that i do. So most of my dan david and i worked have worked very closely for a long time. Most of our day spent talking about what we're going to get for lunch than ordering lunch then sending someone out for lunch then eating lunch so that already sucks up like half of our day. Yeah have shows to catch up on or movies. You wanna watch. Then that's important. So i started out as conan your production assistant right and so now one day told me if i'm ever just waiting at my desk for her to tell me to do something..

"Because you're shooting your episode. And then all of a sudden you see people stores were getting clogged and people are Buying lots of toilet paper and people are buying lots of hand sanitizer and then masks going on and see you see the whole thing kind of happen naturally which was really fascinating but i got to know your landlady in that episode. Is she doing. Okay yeah she's doing okay. That's great yeah. I don't want to spoil too much For season two okay. It is painful for me. There are there are so many stories i would. I would love to tell you and talk to you about right now but you know i guess we'll have to wait until I'm finished with everything. I'm not having you back okay. What kind of assumption is that to come back. But i'll just wait until you back again learning that you are a very entitled titled presumptuous. Well i can't wait.

And i really admire what you do and i'm so happy your show is out there and and That you're making more of them. It's a it's a real delight and I hope we are friends. You know i i i. I'd say at this point Ensure she's christ tough nut to crack. No i'd still find it. So surreal the. You have any idea who i am the transition when i finished the show it's like the transition out into the real world it. It's it's it's been so. It's been so bizarre i will tell you this. I can relate that. I've been on. Tv for twenty eight years. And when i meet people that were on television before me. I still find it weird that they know who i am. Yeah so that never goes a good way. I don't think that should go away. It's it is surreal. Y- there's something about that line you know where it's like the bachelor it's like i still think even though they're like twenty contestants they're like twenty three twenty four. I still think they're all old older than me. Or you know with the real world or something like that. There's something about like. I when i watch when i watch any young person who's really confident with women. I immediately think they're older than me. Even though i am a very old man at this point And they're twenty four if they're confident with women and they know what to say and they know what to do. I assume that i'm sixteen. And they're nineteen. Yeah so. I know what you're talking about. Yeah like like a like a three year old. Who speaks a you know the different language or something. We'll i'm trying. I'm such a fan of your show. It just occurred to me. I am determined to be on at some point. So i'm going to keep going to find out where you guys are shooting and i'm just gonna keep walking into the shot and eventually you're going to have to have to bring up and occasionally you'll encounter conan o'brien you'll pan up from a dead rat smushed into a crashed wedding cake and you'll see me what you'll be you'll be taking you'll be taking a piece out. I'll be taking a piece out of an look right to and wink and ruin the whole show exactly during your worst a moment i will be there. Yeah catch me. When i i'll i'll i'll do a thousand things to try and get on your show and then when i don't think you're around and i'm i'm defecating behind it dumps because i have a e. coli you'll capture that moment and put it in.

"Like in nineteen hundred. Seventy five seventy six. It looks so different than what we're seeing now even even just like to talk. Whatever like home video steph. Everyone's like when when when people film each other these days. Is it like even just on like cell phones like there's like a performance yes and it's not like when i look back at home videos that apparent shot or whatever it's just like this is an event i'm gonna shoot the event in like no one's like performing this is just like here's what all these people look like sitting in chairs. Here's what the street look like that. And you know. I it's kind of raw and it's not like someone doing a dancer or something. I've noticed that if you occasionally find this great footage from like nineteen thousand nine hundred sixteen amazing footage the one thing i noticed when i look at that footage is that people are not handing it up for the cameras. Yeah people are being themselves in their noticing. The camera and a motion picture camera is a relatively new thing. So they're all sort of staring at it. But can you imagine turning a camera in a crowd today everybody would be striking oppose being ironic being obscene. Everyone would would be doing schtick. It's so amazing. To look at footage where people know. They're being documented but they don't know yet to be ironic. They're not conscious of the camera. They don't even know what a camera is. Something really beautiful about it. Yeah we'll never get back to that place again but now and who might have talk. I made my living like becoming more animated in front of a camera. And no but like i'm not there's a place for all this and you know it's like i consume this stuff all the time. It's like i watch. You know. I was just watching the the bachelor i watched the bachelorette watching that you're watching the bachelorette. I watched that. Yeah i watched the bachelor or the bachelorette whenever it's on. There's just something. So funny i love. I love watching look first of all just need to stop for say. I love hearing this. This makes me really happy that That you are. I'm just picturing you. Because i know your apartment from watching the show so i can picture you in your apartment and you're watching the bachelorette. Yeah well i'm not. I'm not the only you know there's a lot of people in in kind of I guess the bachelor nation You know i am not shaming you shaming you at all and i'm glad to know your bachelor nation it's would you prefer bachelor or bachelorette which show You know it's it's. It's been strange since dependent started. But i don't know i really don't favor one over the other. I dislike watching the show. Because i just think it's so funny that like if they were conducting the same experiment but there were no cameras like they would get one hundred years in prison like this is like sex trafficking. Yes yes it is. It is served in a compound in the desert and there was no production and there was a challenge this week. you know. this doesn't date it too much but like where the bachelorette decreed that none of the men could masturbate while on set. And if i like the first time they acknowledged that the men masturbate off camera. And then i'm glad that's being acknowledged but it's just so strange that like they weren't allowed to imagine that like again if there were no cameras that would be psychotic us to tell that to a roomful of people that they couldn't and she's like a sex positive bachelorette this is actually the sex positive bachelorette but she's she's telling them. They can't masturbate. It's very strange men masturbating in the woods. Before like what were they doing. I don't know if you have any Do the look in your eyes. You don't have any answer. No that's just me. Whenever people talk about masturbation. I go to another place. But i'm back now i i. I can't tell you watching. No but listen. My thing is if you were there if you're there on the set of the bachelor or the bachelorette and you were shooting your own footage and we could see that we'd have the to all these quests because you'd be shooting in the woods when men were measuring themselves you would have that footage and then we could. We could see the whole. That's a whole other documentary in and of itself which is shooting you shooting one of these shows. That's frankly quite insane. I would give anything to to document. production like that. But i i just think that would be like a major existential kind of issue for them if they had someone kind of like filming what exposing what actually happened. I know how. I feel like we probably. You probably have a good idea to her. Shows are made and you know they just the whole reason. It succeeds is because you have absolutely no idea how it's kind of frankenstein together. Or they try to obscure that from like the normal audience. I guess but like correct me. If i'm wrong though but at some point i wanna say it was in the nineties probably with the real world and i've put this theory out there before. But they were shooting the real world and they were just trying to capture the reality of people living together in new york in an apartment. they're not paying for. But then at one point they had a character on in the san francisco episode who was named puck completely off. The rails refused to play By the rules. Kind of a trump figure that just came in knocked all the pieces off the board academic a lunatic and everyone wanted to know about puck. Since then everyone's goal on on one of these shows is to behave is insanely as possible right And so and these shows also look for people who have problems with addiction alcohol Rage you know personnel borderline personality disorders. And then they put the mona in bikinis on an island and they give them a lot of alcohol and they say. Did you hear what that guy just said about you behind your back and then they shoot it where you wonder like..

"You were making your films. You're putting your stuff together and you're putting it out there. And who sees it but nathan fielder who's one of my favorite people He's he's absolutely brilliant. And i think he's done some of the most original work of anybody nathan for you is absolute incredible show and And he's very so funny and so smart so he finds you work. I think you guys are great team. And you found a great writer producer. On michael coleman used to work with me. And i think there's a real sensitivity to. We wanna help john do his thing his way and assist him and realize his vision as opposed to what often happens when other people get involved. Is it gets twisted and perverted. Yeah yeah i was. I was afraid that they were going to you know potentially recast me You know i was offered the role. Yeah you tim robbins. Whoever i don't know why do i always. I almost got shawshank. No yeah true story for it and then they said wait a minute. You're not an actor too gullible. They said your eyes are. You don't know how to act. I forgot to here. Yeah no they were. They were really good at kind of like isolating what worked. And what could where. There is room for improvement. Mike more or less they they realized that like i guess the charm of it a lot of it was just in that in that it truly felt like you know like the stuff where i'm just actually alone and nimble and able to get into certain places without the kind of like without the kind of awkwardness of production. You know kind of shadowing you all the time That was like where most of the life isn't it and and they just like i don't know they just they were really good like even tougher. I i was nervous. I was really nervous. And like i also like to know nathan and komen and like i had a hard time like separating kind of like nathan's character in his show from the actual nathan and at the same time and just because like i had. I hadn't really like collaborated with anyone like a really long time. Like i by design was collaborating with anybody but they were just so they were so good and and like they knew when to to kind of like tell me i was being ridiculous or You know unprofessional or stuff. Like that. And i think like yeah and it. It really shows in the work. One thing that occurred to me is you have to. Have you have to have people shooting stuff for you. Because there's no way you can shoot all of it on your own but it's the way you shoot things so personal to you. Did you have to train people. When you're out shooting. Say biro like we need a need help. We need many more shots of scaffolding. And i need you guys to go out and look at it. You'd almost have to train them how to think or see like you. Yeah yeah. I again my team. I got nilly clues. Chris gio britney like everybody is just so like not forgetting. I'm gonna cut all those other time for that trip. well anyway. I wanna thank a few people to handle in my career. I'm not going to might as well not i should. I'm trying. i'm dan try. I'm trying to be good I'm going to think as many people as you think just to get you back. Yeah thank my father teaching me that human society to mom and dad thank you. Thank your parents for always encouraging me. Yes they sent me letters back in the eighty s. Your work day. They go out and they film. I'd say a quarter of the show because a lot of it is like a lot of it is like very first person stuff that i'm doing but then they picked it up almost immediately to indicate you like to let you like to shoot it a little wide so that it's up to me to see the thing that you're seeing sometimes rather than which is i. Think a lot of people in comedy like to shoot in like the push on the funny thing and i've always thought don't push on the funny thing. Let me discover the full. Yeah it's it's yeah you gotta let people like people should so tight on stuff and i feel like i come more from like cinnamon documentary and like my favorite imagery is is just like the more information the better for me and just like i just never see cities shot in the french connection or something like that and it's just like people like i love that movie people that movie it's just like because it's such an amazing artifact of a very specific time in new york you see so many panoramic like big wide shots of like new york and that's not the only thing that makes it good but it's like like stuff like that like like the archival qualities of a piece of work are just like just as important to me you know that makes me think about something that i'm a little obsessed with which is as a culture. I think we love things to look shiny and fancy and rich and affluent so most movies you see and i'm just going to just brought up fast and furious but any most movies depict new york city or they depict they lifted to cut around. And you see these you know now. We're in dubai now. We're in rio and everything looked so beautiful and sexy and the cutting is so fast. Yeah and then. I think about these movies like you said french. Connection or movies from the seventies that showed you what new york looked like back. Then sweet smell of success if you know that movie with Tony curtis at and burt lancaster. It shows you new york in nineteen fifty eight and i. It's a great movie. But i love. Just how they captured like a news crew they they captured what new york was like what it was like back then and it's not always pretty. Yeah even the you know the the narrative stuff that you know tries to show the gritty new york a lot of the time at the still close down streets and stuff like that. And it's just like you know there's some kind of weird artifice there. I just watched Marathon man and just also remarking on. Oh i that okay oh wait. That's what diamond district looked like. Yeah wait that's what. The upper west side looked like a look. They're they're over there in central as in central park. That's what central park looked..

"It's it's just like you. It takes no money at just like you get a newspaper. You dislike cut things out you know. Just like all the So like all the material was just is just always there on the street and you just need to know how to arrange it and interpret it. But i mean i hope it's inspiring for like other people who like are like you know feel like some kind of like they don't have the money to do something like the the resources just. It's so easy you don't have to do this exact same thing. But it's like. I had ambitions early on like when i was younger to make these big bloated movies that involve like big crews and stuff like that and you know all these fictional elements and stuff but like this just felt the most honest and you know like it. Just something i could just reliably do like without any buddies help really were and that means no interference to yeah not to say that. Like with with the show now. I have like this unbelievably talented group of people. That like helped me like that. Part of it editors now i have a whole. There's a whole apparatus around it. That like i basically had to teach everyone to kind of see things in a certain way or cut things in a certain way and they're all just amazing. I think it'd be. It just occurred to me when you were talking about how you used to have ambitions to do sort of a big fiction movie that it would be hilarious in. I would love to see if they gave you the next fast and furious movie. Tau f- ten. Yeah they're just doing hockey's now. Yeah yeah because. I got fascinated a couple of years ago with the fast and furious movies. And how insane they are mostly how they They seem to not. No one has understands how physics works and those. I know. That's not the point but i just recently took my son to see f nine. It's the finest movie i've ever seen. What do you mean. They're absolutely off the wall bananas and things happen that you just can't believe happen and you can't believe everyone's just watching this happen and and so it's kind of like my show it is and what i thought it'd be really great if because you've got this heat. Now of of how john wilson. He's this incredible tour In the past what happens is when someone gets some heat is director. They give them a big movie like this. If you shot your version of fast and furious ten and you were standing around with vin diesel and all those stars and you're saying guys we just have to wait to see what happens. And i'm going to go and i'm gonna shoot rat eating a piece of baloney in the corner. I would just tell them right. I mean dream van. If you're listening. I yeah i would just tell them to make fast ten as they were going to and then i would just yeah i would just document it. And then we would trash all the footage that they shot they would get fifteen maserati and they would be having them all climbing up the eiffel tower and it's a stunt racing the eiffel tower the top to defuse a bomb. And it's a stunt that costs well over six hundred million dollars and just as it begins your camera would drift over to the side and pushed in and you would see a decaying eclair stepped on in the mud and you would hold on background but here this amazing we miss all the pirates man. It's summertime. I love summer. I due to some brings us great moments when you kick back around like a campfire. You grab a few co beers you and your buddies make one of those backyard firepit. S- yeah you do that on a camping trip and you sit around with your buddies and you talk about you know how your day and the canoe went how your game of capture the flag you talk it all down That's an interesting camp. You go to yeah. Seems like children's can while playing children's games i never. I'm pretty much frozen at thirteen years. Yeah you sit there and then you got all scared about a ghost and then you wet your weight your car..

"So let's delete it. So i never saw you in one of your shows. You talk about how scaffolding is omnipresent new york. it's everywhere it doesn't seem to be temporary. Then you talk about why. That's the case. Because he do some research. And then i start seeing it through your eyes and since i've been back in new york city walking around all i see is the scaffolding and that's because if you so fuck you that's alert you in here and i know i have something i brought something for you. Oh it's the Scaffolding of the month calendar. Twenty one. Look at this. I got a carrot calendar. This is fantastic apple. Ding of the month. She's got a different neighborhood. Different kinds of scaffolding halfway through two thousand twenty one. But i figured better late than ever. I i love this ovoid. This one's beautiful soho. You've really got some. Did you take all of these. I did not take all those photographs but you know. It's real scaffolding real scaffolding. Now you'll be cursed with the side of it also. I think there's a visual poetry to the show that i get i get entrenched with one. I'm watching it. I very much fake that you captured these images. You'll capture someone wearing practically no clothes and just like like under just a guy wearing underwear is completely unsolved conscious. And he'll be eating a massive sandwich with mayonnaise and you've got him framed kind of beautifully and he's not noticing you looking at him and then you notice that no one notices him. You find all these things that nobody else seems to see which are completely absurd. You know like a. I don't even know if i've seen this on your show but it's the kind of thing like a giant sofa with a toilet perched on top of it that's leaning against the side of an alley and no one's l. Pays it any attention but you find it and you shoot it. And it's like when i first started making the the movies in this style. It was like you know it's like i just didn't have any money. I was just like celebrities and everything. I couldn't pay anyone to like be a sound partisan or you know really like each each each to ten minutes before the show came out it was like to make ten minutes It would take a year you know just like harvesting like footage on the streets and you know it's just it's it's collage right..

"We have a shorter amount of time with season two as well because with kobe. Production schedule was extended. But there's just something that happens a what you're getting so far. Do you really like it. I really like yeah. I was so i was such a ball. Kind of nervous at the beginning before production started on season two. And you know. I don't wanna get too much into it but it's like once we started shooting. It's like it's oh my god it's happening again. You know it. I can't explain why but like the universe is just kind of like kind of offering these things. I think the way i look at it. Is you have a tuning fork inside you. I don't mean that in some disgusting talk about balloon finished. we're trying to get it removed. Time tuning fork fetish to have them inside me and then i can get them to vibrate but listen. That's my business and if you ever want to put that in your show But yeah. I'm a lot of people like you There's a lot of us. Should come to a meeting some time when we all start vibrating in a in a flat. Same but The way i interpret it. I think is that these things are available to everybody. But you're able to see it and we're all walking around the same new york city and i've been walking around the same newark city all day today. And you're and you're walking the streets as i am. You're seeing things that i'm not seeing a really good example of this is which might be a a curse as well you know. All blessings are occurs and a cursor. A blessing carson. I'm you know. I feel like i've cursed people with the site of scaffolding and was going to bring you know i- scaffolding i live in los angeles now but i live for twenty years in new york city and i just stop noticing it.

"Maybe maybe my voice get better as my face rats off my skull. Well at least your podcast your it. This just perfectly because as you know. The irish are faces. Don't age well so this is This was the good move. I think as the face rots the voice deepens and what. Listen we have so much talk about today. And i i will do my best to give you my my best vocal performance But a terrific guests today and Anxious to begin this portion of the show go today. Directs writes produces and narrates the brilliant. Hbo documentary series. How to with john wilson. You first season now on if bill max absolutely thrilled talk to him today. Sean let me begin by complimenting us saying anyone if you're listening and you haven't seen yet how to with john wilson go and watch this right now. Not right now. Listen to all the ads and by all the products. But then when you're done doing that watch how to with john wilson which is absolutely a delight thank you. It's still very very surreal Hearing this from you. And i i mean just being face to face with you i mean. I think you're the first celebrity. That's consented to meet up with me since since you're showing a wet consented to meet with you instead of me. Filming them on the street or something. That's right. I should also mention that. You're part time gig. Is you work with. Tmz last yeah. Yeah one of the things if you work on if you work with. Tmz is you have to be able to keep asking Inane pointless questions over and over and over again even if you get no response and i I'm only bring this up. Because recently i was somewhere i was doing a show at the largo theater and i came out and it was a tmz guy there and it wasn't like he was nina or anything. It's just it clearly had told him. Just fire off as many questions as you can as you might get something interesting. So i'm out there. He has a couple of questions new. Hbo show and i said i. I really don't know what that's going to be at what you know. And then within seconds. He saying teak wood you stain teak or would you leave t. alone a does it. Does it still water unstained. And i'm like i don't know. Is it a onomatopoeia or on a mata early. Anything and i feel like i have a similar similar approach sometimes In a weird way. I'll be meeting with someone you know. Say like a car collector or something like that and they might think that I'm here to talk about the cars but there's something completely different going on in my head. Yes and i might ask something like whether or not the teak should be stained or something like that and they'll give me i. It'll kind of catch them off guard and it'll give them They'll they'll they'll give a really honest kind of answering the moment because they just don't really know why i'm asking and that ends up being the one moment. Sometimes that we end up using in the show. Because i'm shooting like six episodes at once all the time so if i have someone who is willing to talk to me. Usually i'll cycle through six or seven different topics. So that if it turns out to be a dud for one episode than fit perfectly simply. It's almost like the the farther away at gets from the subject matter. The funny eric gets you know one of the things you know l. l. back in a bit again and say your show and again this is for anyone out there who's the uninitiated Your show is essentially you and now you have some people helping you but you walking around with video camera and seemingly you shoot thousands of hours of stuff that you find kind of fascinating and interesting in and around new york. It's the most honest depiction. I've ever seen of new york. It's new york warts and all but you're not making fun of new york. You clearly love new york. Yeah but there are shots in your show. That are absolutely haunting a trash bag. That's caught on a broken mannequin. That's lying in the street and it looks ghostly and were or rat eating you know a smashed cannoli And then scuttling away and you narrate the show. We never really see much of you. Start with a topic and it's how to. You'll say this is an episode. That's how to make small talk. Which is all about. I'm john wilson gonna teach you. I'm going to investigate. How do i make small talk but very quickly this leads you to meeting a guy who's determined to capture child predators. Yeah and you're suddenly meeting with this guy and he's taking you to his house now. I know that took hundreds of hours of shooting and some crazy. Good luck and you keep at it but when you put it all together it's taking this serpentine strange journey as a viewer. I'm watching it. I don't know where it's going to go. I don't think you know where it's going to go. I mean that's what excites me. The most about the work is that that kind of weird thread that you just have to follow you know. We just have the freedom to do that. In the show and i feel like a lot of other productions might not have that but i just wanted to make sure that we preserved it because that is what i feel most alive. You know. it's like when. I feel like i'm kind of documenting something or seeing something that kind of no one else has seen. Potentially you know and following this this this thread. I don't know it just like as long as i'm surprised while i'm doing it and i'm confused and i don't know what's happening. The audience that translates to the audience. You know and that that suspense you know. Th that's all packaged into it. Some of the funniest moments just happen. It's the mistakes that are beautiful. And whenever i would look at great moments from like talkshow sort of god johnny carson. Most great moments were accidents. It was it was not the sketched that they had written. It was something going off. The rails Someone misspeaking something happening a monologue joke bombing. That's where the magic would happen. It was not by design. You had a show that said how to cover furniture after bunch of twists and turns. You're talking to someone who's telling you how you can Restore your foreskin and how. He has dedicated his life to restoring people's for skins with different different device. That he's then waits. It's totally weights. I was watching it as thinking again. You can't write that that and if you had written it it wouldn't have been nearly as funny. That just happened. Yeah yeah it's it's really just a i always say it's just just kind of like a numbers game. You just really have to try a lot of different things and just follow the most interesting threads. I dunno it's like when i was you know it's like when i was in college. I made this documentary. I was trying to make a documentary about strip club. You know it was just. It was really really trying to make a regis. Wanted to go to the strip club yeah yeah air quote documentary. Because i was always my excuse me. i'm always. They're saying it's for documentary. They say camera said well. We don't use the camera right away. Yeah just just doing sketchy going out. That i've never done undocumented. It's not really my field. Yeah and once. We got over that. I found that there was like they would host these these these parties where they had balloon fetishists come and people that were attracted sexually attracted to the inflation and the popping of balloons. And is that a thing really. I mean i know. Everything's a thing. But i've never heard of people becoming aroused by the inflation and popping a balloon. It's you look it up. There called lugner's it's like a well established fetish and i went to the so i went to the strip club and i was and i found this kind of subculture. I became friends with the leader of i. Guess one of the biggest message boards on the internet and i ended up making of the documentary just became about that. You know and it's just kind like it's about just saying yes to instead of like being very narrow and and trying to like you know like just do what you originally had planned out to do. You know i. It may sound like cliche advice. But it's it's it's really just like you just have to be willing to throw everything out that you thought it was going to be and you know. Follow whatever like appears. It's it's just so you know. During the first season of the show is so much like truly like relied on pure coincidence In this way that absolutely terrifies me and made me think that it wasn't like reproducible. Maybe you know about like. And and i'm just like how could we possibly kind of bottle this much magic kind of like all over again you know..

"And maybe we'll find a tone that people out there find exciting. I'm going for kind of a confident guy. A guy whose looks back at his life knows that he's had greg chievements doing an accent. A not sure what i'm doing and i can tell you that this will be pitch shifted in. You will sound like basically like barry white wanna say something kinda to the ladies. Feel free to shout togo's ladies right now. Listening this is conan. O'brien madonna y soon is giggling to stir having a good time right now kicking it in my crib. And can you try something else. And i swear to god i will pitch this lower and i promise. I won't pitch this highlighted chipmunk at go ahead and just do something real soldier and night with three of my lady friends. Let's just say it was quite an evening. We played by keys. And then we all had some great snapple left quite satisfied that so i can say that that incident. Yeah i have no doubt that. Our listeners are weak in the knees from that well. Here's what i wanna do. I i do wonder is there any. Is there anything. I can do to make my voice sound sexier. Have you tried just doing a little breath easier in a little more aspirated. I like that. I you know. I did notice talking to bill burr. Recently that he's got this thing he talks like he's missing most of his lungs. Have you noticed was like he's you got people and wondering you know what what's that all about and it's like he's got to get more air into the four tiny sacks left he has to suck air. I wouldn't do. I wouldn't do i I don't know i don't i don't know i think it's a subway. Then read a bus and it's like he's gotta grab more air. He takes little sips of air and then he gets out what he can get what people need to come in. And then i'll work on it. It's better when he's around. And i can hear him but he's got that thing like i've only taken a very short gulp breath and i gotta get us before taking the breath because what people what's anyway and then you wake go. What are you doing. i don't know about. That's not a good way to go. No i don't think so could be kind of breathy that works. That's kind of more of a. This is more of a will ned kennedy. Yeah what if you were to just like like. I'm going to call in with a love song request and year. The breathy dj. Okay all right so high. I'd liked to play wilson phillips. Hold on for my husband all right. It was named alan. My name's sheila sheila all right. We're gonna play wilson phillips now. This is a think. I mean. I know i'm married but wow married to but i never stopped me from jumping in the game. If you know what. I mean play game. I mean play hackie sack even though my foot occupy can juggle to sacks at once. Okay i have to go. I have to go. You can cancel that request that good. That went the wrong way. Yeah i don't think it's your voice. I think it's the things you say terrible things. Yeah like you were. We had your voice pitch down. You talked about having girls over and we're like oh yeah and then you're like great soda and i don't think i just don't have it in me and i think my voice probably is a true reflection of who i am. I like your voice. I honestly don't think you should feel that way about your voice. You do kind of have this like deep. there's a little crackle in there that's alluring. You got a nice voice. that's very nice of you. That's very kinda. I i will try to accept myself more as as as i was made or as to quote The great james lipton as god made me God made him conan as god man. I think you're gonna age into even finer voice.

I don't love the sound of my voice and that's true of a lot of performer. But i think. I have good reason and i'm wondering if i should start experimenting with lowering my tone. A little bit on the podcast. If that might be something that people like hearing your lowering your voice but you're also kind of changing year like dialect tend to do that. I'm just trying to lower it. But i think once it gets lower. It's almost like a. There's a certain attitude that comes with it a certain. Oh boy. i don't like it wasn't what i was not can you. Can you just lower it when you edit the show. I can pitch shifty down if you want. Let's sound like like put the lotion in the basket. Well i'm going to do me a favor matt.

Lynda Barry and Chris Ware: Making Comics and Rusty Brown

"Some thirty years ago. Art Spiegelman was led to agree that if we could take frequent breaks he would come into the studio even though he has to smoke back then. It's around thirty years ago. Art I smoked two will go on breaks together. Either he said okay. We did a show and we became immediate friends and one by one he introduced me to Chris. Wears work to Dan Klose's work. I think you Chris Dan Clouds and chip kidd a book designer. Were on the show together now. Finally after thirty years of being toned than I would would love Linda Barry that she's inspiring that she's improvisational explosive. I Have Lynda Barry here for her book making comics. And I'm curious about how you own wall because Matt graining. The inventor of the simpsons is a part of this and the Canadian artist named Seth Is. Did you all get together. Well I I met Chris. I remember you being a key in my mind. You're a kid and it was when mouse to the second book had come out and art called me on the phone. He was in town to sign books and he said I want you to meet this kid. He called you a kid. I want you to meet this kid. He said he can draw anything. And I said okay he goes. No I actually mean he can draw anything and I remember being in this Restaurant restaurant or a cafe and that you didn't talk very much and you just sort of leaned back and looked terrified but I remember I likes Hugh immediately and I didn't know your work and I didn't know what you did but I just remember liking you immediately so my relationship with you. Chris is a procedure. Cj Work or even precedes me. Even knowing your work I just remember you as very young sort of timid White boy why I knew you before I knew your work too because I remember seeing you on the David Letterman. Show shell when I was in high school and you were the funniest guest that he'd had and I thought who is this person because your work didn't appear in Omaha World World Herald or any of the Omaha papers at all but you were a personality that was clearly one to be contended with and you you clearly cannot flipped out the host of the show. I don't think he knew what I did. Honest held a gun to his head and just said why does she do uh-huh and there'd be on the other side of the wall because he wouldn't have known well then when I finally met you with partly you're talking about when I was in Chicago a you're the funniest person in impersonate ever remember me. Just laughing. At everything he said was true. I just sat there and giggled. Linda's work when I got to know it I I was not only surprised. Funny it was but it was maybe in the mid eighties or so and in the late eighties where you started really do serious storytelling retelling in your strips in completely knocked me over. I couldn't believe the stuff that she was getting at in her stories and strips and how deeply deeply felt it was. I was sure that it was all autobiography. Because if it was drawn with such conviction and even to say those words drawn with conviction didn't really apply to comics at that point and I was shocked to find out when I think I read an interview in the Comics Journal with you that it was fiction. Shen that you were writing and eight started stealing from you immediately because you had something that I so desperately wanted which was to be able to write something that felt real and felt like it was emotionally grounded and came from a point that was human which at that point in comics was almost unheard unheard of and I kind of from studying your stuff and trying to write stories about my own life. I found myself kind of channeling. Your Voice but through channel in your voice finding my own voice. You know who was who was a big influence for me was John. Wilson was nuts. That's your series. He he did nuts because it was in the national. It was the national lampoon but it took a childhood sadness seriously And it really had a big influence on me him and Dr Seuss. Whatever you think nuts you know? Oddly peanuts I never ever bonded or attached to peanuts. I don't know why I think it was too close to the sadness was a little bit too close. I'm you know I'm the Family Circus Lover which everybody but he just yeah? I'm the Family Circus Lover. I loved family circus but Peanuts was too sad for me Well what's warrantless is. Linda's new book is making comics and aside from being a marvelous assignment book. which which will take you from the childhood activity of drawing monsters all the way up to making comic books? I'm a big big fan of her book. One hundred teams in making comics. She says something that amounts to if if you're uncertain about something do it again and again and again and so the first two or three pages of making comics is devoted to different versions of one hundred demons. One hundred demons one hundred demons one hundred the demons and you see altogether. They make a beautiful gallery and a wonderful Kalash and VATS. When I discovered about Linda Barry is that her work is a collage of feeling of vision John of faces of forms of animals of monsters of demons? Tell the story again and again and again and again says Gertrude Stein and you will have told the story. And that's what makes the work. It seems to me so earnest funny but grab you by the scrub of the neck heart. Something I was thinking about how many books I've read for the second third or fourth time and had that experience. It's the same book but I'm seeing something I have never seen before and which can also also have everything to do with three other books read in between and suddenly those three other books put this prism and you can see this new kind of color combination And that's one of the things. I love most about books as kind of how their endless and Chris's book Rusty Brown is one of those ones that you can dwell in forever
