My uncle was chief of police. We had that town prewar really. My great grandfather was appointed mayor of my hometown by queen. Isabella way gone. I'm sure is that always makes you laugh.

He talks about how he would be playing a gig and how a conga line with breakout out and go through eight or nine different clubs in south beach with a line stretching for blocks and blocks the movie too. Many girls is notable for another fact. A co starred this up and coming red-headed comedian lucille ball. Desi by the way didn't get the girl in the picture he's as the eye candy.

That's two people in love. Did they wanted to do. And this was pretty new at the time a television show. Now i wanna take a moment to tell you what. Tv was like before. I love lucy. It was pretty close to people being just a cardboard box with a cutout they do little plays facing one camera and at the time most television shows were live and broadcasts from new york so tv was sort of like radio but with pictures and just as ephemeral they had this technology called kinase co which was a way of sort of recording a video screen and it looked terrible. Grainy and most importantly it didn't last they used to record the shows alive in new york and then replay them via kim scope three hours later in california could barely see it on tiny. Tv sets and then it would disappear but doesn't really wanted to capture the magic from the movies they had done. They wanted to make tv shows as good as a hollywood movie and they didn't wanna move to new york but i they had to convince the t. v. executives. This is not going to surprise you but there were no interracial couples on tv. In the nineteen fifties. Lucille ball had a popular radio. Show with a white actor playing her husband and as deputy tells it the tv execs. Were like wait. A minute why you do a tv show with lucy and that guy. The husband and the radio show was richer then was a tall blonde brew. I vice president of a bank or sometimes you'll be able to get away with that part you know.

I laugh every single time and across the country people love the real crazy chemistry between two of them proves to the television executives and the network sponsors that yes
Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones review – a murderous Who-dunnit comes alive
"The recent. You know kind of low budget animation. That they've been doing the more cost effective animation. I should say and thankfully we it was released in twenty twenty and finally have a complete story so this is one of the things on my to do list that i wanted to get to as soon as possible when i was making the new schedule. So this story written by david ellis and now the hulk or zydeco the incredible malcolm hulk who wrote a bunch of notable stories from the patrick troughton in jon pertwee eras including will. Hey the war games. Patrick crowds final story the celerion. The first appearance of this larry ins ambassadors of death which was really cool story that we talked about here it also the seat devils a fun story with the master that we haven't talked yet so that's one of those that hopefully we'll get to at some point here on next up. This was directed by jerry mill. This was the eighth serial of doctor who season four nineteen sixty seven starring. Patrick troughton as second doctor. Unida wills as poly right. Michael craze as been jackson in. This is betty polly's last story by the way. And frazer hines as jimmy mcrae. Mid who at the end of the story gets a promotion to main companion after benn polly Exit the tartus closing out the way of heart once and for all so jesse. I know that this is probably your first time watching the story. I'm guessing david your thoughts about it. So i yeah and i'm gonna have a couple of questions we'll get you that i assume you're going to cover in trivia but just in case you want yeah So i settled down to watch this Linda was out of. Linda was spending the night with her sister. Kaya in a many birthday celebration. And so i watched the first dealer yes. I watched the first three on friday. Night and i watched the remaining three on saturday And i enjoy the. I enjoy the last three a lot more than i did. The first three now. I think part of that may have been. I was a little tired. It was today but also think the first three were a lot of setup. Yeah in once the next three you got really a lot of the story and was really well done so overall. I'm pretty happy with this one. I'm glad we got to see it. Yeah and And i'm looking forward to talking to you about it but my question is In you've probably covered this before. But i have slept since then. Why was so much of patrick. Totten's episodes lost and specifically about this. Well there was a purge by the bbc to essentially make space as i understand it and in the process they junked a bunch of old doctor. Who's they didn't think they needed them anymore. In their infinite stupidity and a lot of them were were episodes. From the william heart. Oh and patron eras you know there was in levin and some others that had managed to recover some of those over time because this was believed in the seventies and since then you know there's been a lot of effort by fans to try and recover episodes which have either been somehow scattered to the winds across the entire globe and or just play lost in this story. They'd only managed to recover episodes one in three. That are returned to the bbc archives. Because hey now they want to keep them a what. I what i find interesting. Charles is the seventies relatively speaking. I mean i love. Lucy had been in syndication. So you think people would have realized the Cordao yet and the importance and also. I know that they talked about that. Many of the early tonight show episodes back with johnny carson. The same thing they just re. They didn't keep them. They did because they didn't think they're reporting. And i remember years ago. I talked to someone and he was british. And he's like yeah doctor who it's it's just the it's just a minor kid show. Yeah i'm sure that was the ski. Oh executive thinking yes the super geniuses as wylie coyote super genius exact who made this horrible decision probably thought. Well it's just a kid show doesn't matter you know they. They won't miss it. We've already done Because back in the day dear listeners you used to have summer reruns until you would show an episode twice and and it was kinda done. So i'm sure they were thinking okay. We've already had a repeat time to move on. It's just it's it was just a really bad unfortunate thing that happened to the show because you know like a lot of classic moments are just now lost in presumably. A lot of these are never going to be available in their original format. Now they're going to be like stories like this. That would probably be reconstructed through animation. Or maybe whatever happens in the next ten years technology wise that they could be recreated so now and i guess they had audio right so now the audio either fans have the audio or someone in so that's for steps are recreating it. Yeah thankfully now though. The upside that. I should mention was that through the efforts of fans a lot of kids at home you know. They had their home tape cassette recorders right. Or whatever you know recording real
David Sedaris on a Career-Spanning Collection
"David sedaris joins us now from new york to talk about his new collection. The best of me david so happy to have you back on the podcast. Oh thanks pamela. So why this book now we should say. This is a collection of of your best work. Why did you decide to do this. Are we generally. I was gonna just do an audio book. And i discussed it with maya thomas who has always been my audio book producer. Just because i get a lot of audiobooks and listened to a lot of books. If i have two choices one audio book is like four hours long and the other one is like thirty five hours long. I usually go with the thirty five hour. And i think most my books are pretty short so i thought oh water night just do whatever. I considered a best work. We'll put it together and so it'll be a longer audio book and then my publisher said. Oh why don't we make it a book ball. And i should just like that. You can caved. is your preference for thirty five hour. Long audiobooks tied to your fit bit habit. Yes it is. You know. I just looked at the count of monte cristo. Because my sister amy head read it. That's fifty four our audio walk. We're could you walk with that. I can cover a lot of ground with account of monte cristo. The last time you were on the podcast it was to talk about your collection theft by finding in which you had many encounters over the years with people on the street and what i enjoy so much in this collection the best of me are they encounters in the airplane. I'm curious now if you're if you're having like a second wave of encounters on the street because you're spending so much time walking around driven by your fit bit around new york. Oh i mean. I'm spending a lot more time on the street but i think because maybe it's because people are wearing masks. We see more disconnected from one. Another i think you know when i did travel during this time it felt so good to be back in an airport so good to be back on an airplane. I felt so at home. And i felt like i back where i you know where i needed to be and backward. I belonged and all of it. You know even the long layover and the crummy hotel. All of it i welcomed it went down for breakfast. I had to go to indiana. And i went downstairs for breakfast and i brought my computer. 'cause i was going to work while at breakfast. Thought you idiot. You can't go breakfast Tell with just your computer because there's going to be two. Tv's playing and there's gonna be music. You need your headphones to blot. All that out hired. I forgotten crazy. How much. I forgot just know the nine months that i wasn't allowed to travel. There are so many great airplane stories in this collection. So it's interesting to hear you say that you miss air travel because of your airplane stories sort of exhibit the worst of humanity and thinking. Probably the most obvious one is standing by which is just a classic. You really do still like air travel because to me it feels like you write about it. It brings out the worst in humanity. Remember when i was yelling. And i would watch like johnny carson and so of the comedians would talk about air travel and i thought gee dot they have anything else talk about. But and then as i grew older i realized. Oh that's what they spend all their time right. So that's where. I spent all my time and so that was why i had so many stories about it but i do think it brings out the course in people and also i think there's a real divide between people who travel a lot and people who don't when i went to north carolina couple months ago. I had a long layover in charlotte. And i said to hugh my boyfriend. Who's with me. Why are all these people traveling now. These people who haven't traveled in years and he said how do you know. They haven't traveled in years. I said there suitcases now like they weren't the suitcases with four wheels on them. There were the suitcases with two wheels. You know that people kind of lazily drag behind them see can trip over them right sign now of amateurs and he but because he doesn't travel that often he didn't know what i was talking about. Are there other ways in which airplane travel has changed that that will make its way into your work since corentin so many people are afraid to travel right now. I feel like bending over backwards to clean things. I mean i. It was interesting in north carolina. The governor put a mask mandate in place. Any just put it in place. And i would say maybe sixty percent of the people in the airport wore masks and the other forty war just really defiant expressions and then i traveled like a month later and then it was ninety. Nine percent of people had masks on. It

That being good is not necessarily the end all be all because when he got the job for the tonight show. After jay leno retired yet he lasted one year then. They bounced him not because he wasn't the same funny creative subversive self. He was in the later time slot. It's just the average. American dummy the ethel and the jerry that live in the you know fly country which we are no offense to us and jerry care. They didn't they didn't care care for his style humor.

But dammit conan is funny as hell kudos to you my friend
Fastest Way to Lose Your Zoom Audience
"When it comes to sound quality i mean i even saw this on american idol. Somebody was doing their little spiel in a stairwell. And it had this fishbowl effect. Well what what should we be focusing on on sound quality. Well it's interesting because people are more apt to let go of the video not being perfect if it was grainy or the lighting wasn't just perfect but the second the audio is off and we can't even hear what it is that the other person's saying we start to two now. So you're right. That would be a stairwell would be The worst choice for I guess second to being underwater for a zoom or video broadcasts right and what we what we should really do is experiment with either. The the headphones that came with your phone or A little microphone. They sell all sorts of external microphones. Whether it's your computer or your ipad or your phone that really can make it. Sound much warmer or richer. I'm staring across the room. I have a fancy microphone. That looks like a johnny carson type. Microphone with the little angle. And i have a little clip on microphone which i often use and right now. I'm using airpods. Which i put into my ears and even before we started i said you which what does this sound. Good this better this way or that way and we go with what works best so yeah audio. Sound quality is very very important. If you lose that you lose people altogether

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman
"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.
How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?
"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.
Cyberstalked: Cari Lea Farver
"Because we like to do that we do so carries parents were Nancy and denny. And they fell in love with Nancy's just nineteen years old and then he was twenty one. They got married in nineteen seventy then in nineteen, seventy, two, their son Adam was born. Followed by Carey in nineteen seventy four. Nancy chose Adams name. So then he was to choose Carrie's name. Nancy wanted to name their daughter Kelly. Yes but after Kerry, well, yeah I guess Danny had seen this young girl singer on the Johnny Carson show I think it was really liked her thought she was talented and like the name Kerry. But then he changed the spelling to see a R. I Which I guess. Kind of. Plagued Carey in her youth because everyone was always misspelling her name. You gotta be careful with that. Right you do and this is before there were so many made up spellings like there are now me now you know that they're going to have special spellings of the kids names a lot of the time whatever whatever name you pick. Yeah exactly. The double E. The L. G. H. You know. All different variations, but anyway, Kerry had a hard time with people. Either mispronouncing or misspelling her name because of that. These were young kids when they got married they didn't have a lot of money at least early on. Danny work two jobs. And then finally he got a good paying position as an insurance actuary. This folks actually make pretty good money. Nancy was a skilled secretary. She is always organized and efficient. But like a lot of young marriages, it didn't last. So and Adam was four and can carry with eighteen months. Old Appearance got divorced. Adam maintain a close relationship with his father. Kerry was young when the divorce happened.

Now, once she was in junior high nancy began to notice mark romantically and he was one year ahead of her in school, but they continued to see each other. Nancy was shy and mark was the class clown and they were a couple from the time. She was fourteen until she completed high school. They used to go out on double dates go to concerts dances the whole nine yards. Yard then she met Denny and dump them right or are they broken up before I know of it was that simple? I mean, they attended different colleges. So mark was an art major in Missouri and Nancy went to business school in des, Moines Iowa, and that's where she met Denny. So I wouldn't say she dumped mark. You know that kind of thing happens that does yeah. So by the summer of Nineteen seventy-nine, Nancy had been a single mom for a while. And when she is invited to a friend's wedding back in her hometown of Macedonia.

The Great Toilet Paper Shortage
"The great toilet paper shortage. No I'm not talking about a toilet. Paper shortage caused by the corona virus. Won't get to that in a minute. I'm talking about the shortage of Nineteen seventy-three. This was a time of shortages. Many areas oil scares great economic. Stressors kept Americans on edge so when herald the FROLIC a Republican congressman at the time? Put out a press release warning the public about a possible and in no way imminent toilet paper shortage and night time comedian. Johnny Carson echoed the press release. Well put people on edge and I've got digs out quote from Johnny Carson. He's doing his stand up monologue. You know we've got all sorts of shortages these days but have you heard the latest. I'm not kidding I saw the papers. There's an acute shortage of of toilet paper and now that's an exact quote from Johnny Carson. At the time he had twenty million viewers the ground had already been laid for troop Hanoch amongst consumers carson simply ignited the spark for full blown madness. Millions of Americans across the country flooded local grocery and convenience stores. Totally wiping them clean of all toilet paper. One consumer told New York Times that after hearing it on the News Day. Bought an extra fifteen roles. Another woman asked her party guests to arrive with the roll of toilet paper and again I remind you this was all taking place in Nineteen. Seventy three for a few must toilet. Paper continued to be a rare find. Until like most short-lived trends the fizzled out in the aftermath. Carson was hotseat receiving a large portion of the blame for fueling the shortage. Myth Carson issued a sincere apology to viewers and again this is a quote from Johnny Carson. I don't want to be remembered as the man who created a false toilet paper scare. I just picked up the item from the paper and enlarge it somewhat. There is no shortage. That's a direct quote from Johnny Carson Nighttime Comedian back in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy three. At this point in time the damage has been done and Americans were passed all the potty drama most people would place the blame on Johnny Carson for causing the T. P. Panic but is he solely accountable even before Carson's joke on the Air Americans themselves are partially to blame for the self-induced toilet paper trauma. Can you blame them? These people were used to shortages of everything from oil to that true panic stem from a blatant rumor. Could it be a deja Vu today? The Washington Post reports a run on roles with both Costco. Another supermarket. Chain stripped all but clean even Amazon's physical stores appeared to be down to single rolls of Toilet Paper The New York Times similarly reported from a whole foods supermarket in Somerville Massachusetts where shoppers had to be limited to two packages of toilet paper. Each lease they strip the store bear. There was no shortage of toilet paper. Nineteen seventy three or today. Nearly fifty years later no shortage. There is a quote that applies to the story that you might be familiar with. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The quotas most likely due to writer and philosopher. George Santayana it expresses the sentiment. Ably that history repeats itself it that is true then. We simply need to pay attention. Still we all eat sleep and poop and are driven to take care of those basic

The only talked one of the things I've said in the book is that the only kind of secured only the insecure people who strive for security. The only kind of security I know about for myself is inner security. It has nothing to do with whether I'm employed whether my book is on the best seller list when I make a lot of money whether my wife loves me and my children living on the security no all the other things nice job. A Nice House of Money and a nice car all those things and it's precisely when those things go away when somebody dies or when your business fails go bankrupt or whatever that people commit suicide or have depression or reach for the volume or become alcoholics or whatever because they're always looking outside of themselves for the answers rather than saying. Hey I count you take off your clothes. You look in the mirror every day and you say you know you do a lot of dumb things but you really cute you know you really an attractive person and you're the only person you got so why not take that person with you wherever you go and make it a nice person. Someone that you really love. Do you think people can turn their emotions on and off like that? That a faucet is I'm going to be cute and charming but I don't feel charming. I don't want to go there. I don't WanNa do that. How do you handle that? Well I think we have to understand the word choice. We are the product of the choices that we make in our lives. The fact if you get angry in your life if you get worried if you're afraid if you're anything like that you know you hear the Hitter Lady told me the other night in a talk that I was given. She said. My husband gave me a complex. I said how does that work does he go out and he said. I'd like one complex police for my wife. Put it in a box. Wrap it up and say this is for you and she had a complex. What thank you very much. I'll just you know as if he did this to her. People do these things to themselves and the they say things like you make me feel guilty. She makes me angry. If you had I wouldn't've act this way right. If only you were more like me than I wouldn't have to be so unhappy right now. These are the kinds of sentences that people are making and there are. Those are all state absolutely. They were just the person I married. Yes you know what? Those people are the same way about love. You said we love the things we love for what they are not for what they used to be what they should be or what. I would like them to be if you if you take somebody where they are. You take them with the points that you don't like about them just as well as the points that you do you try to change points. I if you do then you're not in love you're really somebody who's saying you have to be what? I want you to be. And that's where marriages breakdown relationships breakdown. The cornerstone of an effective relationship to me is independence not dependent but then I always felt that my job on this show once I get added at chairs to sit over here and make sure that the show keeps going by keeping my mouth shut. You want to say something but The lead you to train.

"Is pretty bad you ever began as a painter. I thought yeah. I began as a painter and high went to Ireland with a box of paints and at about two hundred dollars and I bought a donkey and cart traveled around for several months. Left under the car painted the idea was that I was going to set the world on fire with my brush and trouble was that It got pretty cold at night. Sometimes I'd want to. I'd want to get some hot milk or something. Whoever accepted hospitality? They wouldn't take money in those days in Ireland. So you get. I have to give them a panic so all the paintings went and I arrived in Dublin. I had no paintings and no money is any of this. This is absolutely true. Yes and that's how I got in the theater. Because I had Darren living. I really did want the painting. Yes I still do it. I wish I was better. I'd give any. I'd rather be painted anything. Lots of people have that. But that's the inborn. Isn't it most of it? No I think anybody anybody can paint. It's just Oh I know that anybody can. Everybody can't sing. I can't I can't sing you could if you have on the and taking money for it but it's it's you can't call it singing really no would you. Now you're not saying you're not saying to me be honest everybody can be it good or not good but can do something particularly Children Canyon. All Children are good painters. You notice that because their natural I suppose and they don't have any restrictions. I don't know what it is. And they get to be a little about seven and they lose it but there's a sort of miraculous time when they paint wonderful pictures. Can you tell me why people would pay seventy five to one hundred and fifty dollars for a painting done by chimpanzee? Now that's been in the paper before and it's been done at gallery where a lot of paintings that are in the galleries. Look as though they've been done by chimpanzees people sure but they buy they buy boxes of sand and call them sculpture.

"Heard music? Does you really good? You're getting has an issue that means we are causing moment was so dull at a music. Quick what do you make during the data motion picture coming up in about a month? Yes yes in about a month or five weeks something like that. It opens its tool. It's too it's too long from the opening. If I thought about another now that nobody will run out and buy a ticket because it is the doors. Open up you know. I think it's opening an not for another. That's right and can you see all of those people battering at the doors of the theaters and being the disappointment. What's the name of Nazis called F for fake F for Fan is all about art forgery and about Howard Hughes and everything? He's very weird story. I started to make a movie about a famous art. Forger called L. Mir and in the middle of making it the man who was the expert on L. Mir who was then unknown was a fellow called Clifford. Irving you can't. He was explaining how this forger worked and while I was making the picture the whole scandal started to break early so I changed the movie again to include. Irving very very weird movies. There's a case I don't know the way over talked about. I think I did mention price one night. Who is quite knowledgeable about art? I guess he's fairly expert. Remember years ago there was somebody who impersonated the Dutch painter. Vermeer yes and His paintings were authenticated museums all over the world by the highest where artists and he sold them for hundreds literally. Hundreds of thousands of dollars. An authenticated is genuine premiered. It turns out later when they found out they weren't premiere. It became a very interesting question. Was The guy the forger good artist he was van. That's interesting isn't it was bad heading you. It's a bad painter. This is what art is finally recognized and then the reason why there are great art for choose who are actually great paints. I don't think he wants. Yeah one of the artists is the reason he wasn't it was because it didn't come from his soul or his heart. It came from a mirror he was simply copying what said but in all fairness beautifully if If there are a few of his paintings that we don't know about hanging museums everybody will say they came from the art of Mir. That again is the dichotomy. Saying is this man a true artist. Or is he just a clever? Fortunately in the case of L. Mia who was the star Myfm Il mio the horror. Who's painted pictures? In the style of fifty different faints he painted three van. Dunkin's which Van Duncan testified that he had painted a pretty good It's pretty good. But he's a good artist. He has paintings in all of the in half of the leading modern museums in the world at one one of them which is hanging in Tokyo which was which is a which is still there. I believe which is a Modigliani who when Mauro came to Tokyo. He stopped in front of that painting and burst into tears and said the inner meaning of Modigliani had finally been revealed to him and my rose one of the great authorities unfolding in the world. And there's all these are pretty interesting. Yes now. People have got to start saying now what what is art? What is hard? What makes a great artist. What is somebody going to copy something? It's not like an impression as it. It's not like doing an impression. You're a forgery something else. You're literally doing another painting as though it's that you're not saying this is the way I'll do the way I think. Johnny Carson is right in other words the rich little as in other words if somebody took a famous painting say Picasso I saw in New York when I was back. There they were having parke-bernet was having this exhibition they had the Picasso of and the red and blue the rose and blue period that famous thing with comedian with son you know the Harlequin with a little boy and it was wonderful. Now if you're saying a forgery or a copier would do that particular picture in other words for one particular picture where somebody who does in the style of a creates his own interpretations is what we're saying. Yeah we're just not an exact copy in other words done in the style of because ours done in the style of copying a painting. It's making a painting as though you were because it's a kind of creation now. There's a strange story in my movie. Which is about because so when he he went to stay in. A little village called Tucson After he'd broken up with one of his ladies and as he was painting there there was a very beautiful girl. Used to go by his window to go to the beach every day and she'd come back again she'd go to dinner. He really couldn't paint and that was a boyfriend of this girl played the trumpet. Made here this damn trumpet night. He couldn't sleep and he'd see you're walking. Finally yesterday close for she came in. He did twenty two paintings over. I'm GONNA finished She said now you must give the paintings had. He was so smitten by her that he did now. She went away with twenty two paintings by because you know when he died he died. He was worth Oh I think it was a quarter of a billion dollars. Whatever the border of a billion dollars he was worth and you can imagine what those twenty two pennies where it was well. A few months went by and Picasso picked up an art magazine and he saw that. There was an exhibit of his paintings in Paris so he came down to pass. She was going to sell them and he came roaring down to Paris to stop this and he looked and all twenty. Two of the pictures in the gallery were forgeries. You recognize them as forgeries. What happened the twenty two original that he had done? He asks the girl and she took him to her. Grandfather was a famous art. Forger who is dying and he said to Picasso. I have been painting you all my life. Nobody will ever remember it. I've been painting all these painters. The museums of the world have my pictures hanging. Nobody knows my name. Now that I'm dying. Will you let me be the author of One Picasso Period? Because I can't do that where my paintings might twenty two paintings. The old art for just said I burnt them. Burn them and then forged them for the exhibition so that he would have twenty two Picasso's in a new style. That's incredible that's incredible. It's kind of sad in a way there was a manager. Of course this story is forgery..

Doc is off and Tommy Newsom as filling in once again his dry sense of humor Johnny gets a lot of mileage. We've heard it on a number of these podcasts. About how boring Tommy actually is but in reality. Tommy was always a go to for some funny. So we've got a great show. We've got the monologue that talks about the history of Halloween talking about the election to Johnny's talking about the election of the debates between Ford and Carter. So that'll give you a little perspective where we were. There's a great callback in Johnny. Does a great callback in there. It's a good monologue. Then we move onto Orson Welles. Now Orson Welles was nominated for Nine Academy Awards for what is considered by many one of the greatest movies of all time citizen Kane. Where's the started out in radio or the world's was a radio show that the mercury players did and people thought it was real and that we were being invaded by Mars and it caused widespread panic. Another great movie of Orson Welles was touch of evil. I mean he was a great actor. He's a great director but he's here today promoting a special that he did for NBC. They talk about his old radio. Show a little bit. They Johnny actually wants to try to create one one day then they move into artwork and forgery and painting. Many people notice but Orson Welles was an aspiring painter. When you first started out but they talk about Picasso and a bunch of other things. It's a great interview. Sadly nineteen eighty-five Orson Wells did die of a heart attack But had a great career. He had one of those voices are booming. Voices that nobody can ever forget. And as a matter of fact did a lot of commercials. I think he did a I forget the wine winter but note we will show new wine before its time if you remember that spot then. Next up is Robert Blake he was Mickey Agra. Watch him as Mickey on our gang and he was in cold blood and he also had a small part and treasure of Sierra Madre where he sold Humphrey bogart a winning lottery ticket. He and Orson talk a lot back and forth about fame on television. This is one of the shows where there's a lot of interaction between the guests and allies. Enjoy that where the guest rather than. Just move down and be quiet. There's a lot of back and forth. And Orson is picking Roberts brain about getting into Into television and whether he should do a television show or not And then Robert Blake gives them some tips on how to succeed and one is that by having the network fear you that you don't need the job and you're gonNA walk away anytime Johnny picks up on this during during a throat at commercial and get some good laughs out of it and then we wrap it up with Wayne Dyer when Dyer motivational author and speaker. And he's written many books your own zones and he's he's talking about what it takes to make yourself happy in life and Being doer is he says what makes you happy He talks about the value of self worth and everything else and then of course Robert Blake picks up on this. And there's a long interruption by Robert Blake. But it's worth a listen. I will see you on the other side and now ladies and gentlemen he a Johnny you see you. You chose what's behind curtain number. Two and I came on a curtain number. One is a song back there again. How are you tonight? What's going on here last night?

"With two of the great comedy minds that made us laugh for so many years. The Wonderful Richard. Pryor and of course Tim Conway Tim Conway Anway sadly died in May of two thousand nineteen but I grew up watching Instant Parker and Mikhail's navy. Tim had a funny. You know he had a very funny bit with Dorf. He had four or five videos where he did DORF which was a a guy a very short. It was sort of a dwarf kind of character that he created he would do it from on his knees and the way he moved around. I made it. was you know. I don't think anybody could not laugh. When they met Dorf He had Harvey Korman Struck. Comedy Gold over and over again on the Carol Burnett show particularly when Tim was trying to crack up harvey and Harvey was trying not to break. It was always something that we as an audience. We knew what was going on and we just love watching it. Tim also did voiceover. He was on spongebob. Bob And he was on On a bunch of Scooby Doo and a bunch of things as a voice actor. So that's our show Richard Pryor will get a second but of course Richard. Pryor Richard Pryor is is on the Mount Rushmore of comedy in so many People's opinion But let's talk about the monologue I. It's a short monologue today There's some jokes about McDonald's in a company sunny in England that tried to come out with a McDonald's knock off The big MAC and Johnny gets a few laughs. Out of that that outcomes Tim Conway to plug his special show and then after he plugs it he wants to just leave and it's funny because Tim is kind of a quiet interview as funny as he was he. He's very quiet in the interview and You you know he just really I think is there. The plug is special. I don't know if he's intimidated by johnny or an offer Johnny but You know it's not it doesn't flow like it does with so many other guests then they get into talking about earthquakes. They talk about some of the earthquakes in California. There's a couple of jokes In reference to the interview not really working so I I think it might be a little Inside but it also might have been a little awkward who knows but you give us an unyielding sun the second guess is Richard Pryor who you know as a kid. I think probably one of the first Comedians I saw in the end Sullivan show was Richard Pryor and watching him sitting at the floor at the foot on my parents bed and laughing I think subtly one of the one of the people that made me want to become a comedian and even growing up in a community family when I was a comedian but seeing prior on Sullivan show he just so likable. And he the You know he had in the early stages he wasn't as he got a little more controversial as as his career went on but he was very much you can see the influence of Bill Cosby and others in his early stand. Stand up career days I got to see a many times work at the comedy store. He used to come in and work out his material in the early eighties. When he was getting ready for his His TV specials specials. He would come in the comedy store and we all were in awe so many of the young comedians was standing in the back and watch him work and of course whenever they would announce Richard Pryor special. She'll guest tonight Richard. Pryor the crowd went crazy. So that's a a a part of my comedy memories that I'll never forget. Richard had done a movie. Co California Foreigner Suite with Bill Cosby and it had gotten some criticism and that is one of the things. Richard I guess this seems to bother Richard. Johnny asked him who made up his audience. And he said you know for the most part You know black people or mixed but in this audience long beach was mostly white and he talked about a joke. That couldn't work because it was not not his normal crowd he. He has a funny story about Chinese waiter that he saw and they both talked fondly about China and one day going there. Richard Pryor died sadly at Sixty five years of age in two thousand thousand five. It was his third heart attack and he had suffered from MS for a number of years. Richard had been married seven times to five different women but As is an actor as a comic. He's a legend he's on everybody's list of top COMEDIANS. He was number one on comedy. Central Number one comedian. The comedy Central List. He is rolling stone named him number one of the fifty best comedians. He had a tremendous influence on so many of our young comedians working today because Richard was not afraid ready to attack a controversial subject and find the laughter in and find the humor in in in racism. And everything else that was you no hurtful in those days. So Richard Pryor legend. He redid his own autobiography movie. That he co directed and that he wrote and directed called Jo Jo Dancer to answer and that was about his life although it was not a success It was still an amazing look at his life in nineteen eighty. He set himself bonfire while freebasing which was tragic and.

"Morning good afternoon or good evening. Hey we'll Schreiner here your host of the Johnny Carson Show podcast and boy. We've got a big name. Today's show Jerry Seinfeld. Who whatever happened to him now? He was a comedian. Started out in the late seventies and Rocketed the probably one of the most successful Sitcom careers ever as well as a continually working comedian out every other weekend still standing up and making people laugh. I got a lot of stories about Jerry. I've known him a long time today. Shows it was pretty good. We've got a good monologue is Jokes about the fruit fly the Mediterranean fruit fly from Johnny Course. Johnny comes out and I can't see it but doc I guess is wearing one of his traditionally allowed Alfredsson. Johnny has a pretty good Reaction to that there are some jokes Faraday or Dr Charles and Diana and the Queen and there's also a bit about the post office and how. How many letters get lost in the mail? There's mentions of Reagan's travels abroad. And even the baseball strike. Johnny's got a good joke about the Japanese Scratching getting themselves so it's a monologue and at the end Johnny Introduces Jerry as a brilliant and very clever comedian before I get into Jerry's monologue let me tell you a little bit something if you don't know and I'm sure everybody knows a lot about Jerry Seinfeld. But his Sitcom that he co wrote and created with Larry. David ran from eighty nine tonight. One thousand nine hundred ninety eight and it's rumored that they offered him five million dollars an episode for season ten and he turned it down. I admire his his ability. Say No to money money. It's something I've never learned but I have had many great experiences with Jerry Seinfeld. I don't know where to begin. I met Jerry when I came to Los Angeles. I guess I was in New York in nineteen eighteen. Eighty doing the comic strip and the punchline comic Strip and the Improv when Jerry I came to Los Angeles he chose the Improv. The comedy store as a place to work out material but Freeman Freeman. Knew Him from New York so he took a good liking to Jerry. Was One of these guys. You took notice right away clean. Charming Charisma Matic With tremendous confidence. If there's anything about Jerry that I would say. His confidence on stage was was admirable and unlike so many others. It wasn't arrogance. It was just confidence. I got to work with Jerry many times times the Improv and Jerry. I came to Los Angeles. He had a small part on Benson which was a Robert Jones Sitcom and guess. It didn't go so well. Just I read a story where Jerry said. He came in for the table. Read and there was no script for him because he was fired. That's just another one of many examples of how tough show business can be on you. Jerry and Jay. Leno were fast friends. Jim J. lived up Nichols Canyon. A lot of people hung out. J.'s House Arsenio Hall Many of us road motorcycles together Rick Overton a bunch of US would ryder motorcycles. Out on the weekends and go after the rocks door or whatever we would do on the motorcycles but it was always great fun and although never a motorcycle Guy Jerry was a car guy he he loved cars particularly porsches. I used to fly out of Santa Monica Airport and there was a hanger. Cross the way that had about. I don't know one hundred fifty to one hundred porsches in it and I asked somebody. WHO's a was Jerry Seinfeld? I never saw him hanging out much at the hanger but I saw the cars with the door open and he had some classic classic Cars I guess. Maybe that's the basis of Comedians in cars with coffee. Now Jerry and I got to work together on numerous occasions my favorite Memory was we're around a thousand seat theater and around Saint Louis. It was called the Westport playhouse. I think it was called into it. Was the bill was Paula. poundstone will Schreiner Jerry Seinfeld. And and Larry Bud Melman well show is going to be probably me Pala Jerry in Larry Bud but Larry Bird didn't have much of an act and we realized that quickly so the show show was reconfigured to have Larry the MC and then introduced the three of us into a half an hour and around it was. I still have the poster my garage. It's one of my favorite advert shows. All three of us were fired on all cylinders and it was a great time to be working together. When you work together you get to hang out together? We had meals and we you know sat in the dressing room and Kipton laughed. and Oh there's one of my great memories of of doing a stand up show with Jerry Jerry and I were young comedians and we were on the MERV Griffin show in Las Vegas. I don't know it might've been like nine hundred eighty one or two or three somewhere in there. I don't remember the exact year but bill cosby was also on the show that that day and Jerry and I they were in the makeup room or the green room talking and bill said Hey. Would you guys like to come over to my dresser room tonight. He was at the Hilton with David. Copperfield and Would you like to come over the dressing room and talk about comedy now Bill Cosby. He's got a bad reputation today but he loved to To help young Comedians and we sat in his dressing. We were from six o'clock to eight o'clock listening to bill. Tell us about secrets. Giving US insight given us. You know all the vice he could he could share about standup comedy. At eight o'clock rolled around. He said you guys want to go up and watch David Copperfield. We go no no we. We want to stay in the dressing room with you as long as you'll have us and we sat there for another half Hour Arwa. Copperfield went on and bill got dressed and went off and did a show and we went back and watched it and it was. It was just you know it was. It was a treat. It was a rare. I wish I said Jerry. Two years ago later I said you remember all this stuff cosby told us she says no but it was all great. I'm sure it you know it's I'm sure it incubated into our psyche someway. That's one of the great experiences I said. I wish I would have had a tape recorder for and now ladies and gentlemen he Johnny You don't you don't you. Don't fool me you're not applauding. You're trying to swat fruit flies. Mediterranean fruit flies are running amok in California. You got here just in time you might have down. I'm for the fruit flies season. You give you a little tip.

"I'm your host will Schreiner and we listened back. Act Too many of these great podcasts and try to put them into perspective for you. Jimmy Carter was president. All things in the country. Were good in nineteen seventy nine so we kick off our show is that always says you. ooh Johnny that was a reminder to all of us to get out of the bathroom and come in and listen to the monologue well tonight doc. Severinsen the band leader is often Tommy. Newsom mm-hmm is filling in Tommy was always the subject of a Of of a shot or two got a great shot on him about his close. Because Tommy was kind of you know a a dry wit and a good foil. Johnny Johnny got a lot of mileage out of that This show has A classic slow news day as Johnny's to say that was always a the premise for not being to top. But he had some things to talk about to do. He was welcoming the tourists and there was giving him some suggestions on what to do in town about like the southern in California theater scene and of course Janis visit the snail land. Next up he talks a little bit about Faira Faucets. divorce He has a joke. That needs needs a little explaining which China so good at explaining a joke but he saves it with great Killer joke end the bit on Farah Fawcett you'll enjoy that following the monologue Karnak them magnificent Visitor from the east as Ed but sets up so well. If you don't understand the remember the premises Karnak would give give the answer. And then Ed would read the question Johnny had always had fun doing this. Especially when the setup didn't go well or any time there was something that was just a little off off kilter ed got a great Great kick out of it and they really They really have fun together doing it. There was one off color joke. That gets a big laugh from Ed. And and there's one that bombs and Annette even says You'll hear it but as questions if johnny got it right or not. The audience is hot and cold throughout the monologue. But Ed milks when he gets to the. I have in my hand the last envelope. Well that was always a good setup for ed it was always a good reminder for the audience that this better be a good one and this one is and I guess on a show is the great comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Who We've lost a few years ago? I actually even went a to his funeral and it was one of the more funerals I've ever Attended and everybody got up and told Rodney stories and Roddy was a great guy to hang around with. He used to come in the IMPROV. All the time I sit around and the big roundtable improvisation on melrose and a whole court as we say because who as a comedian did not love Rodney Dangerfield I love this monologue and then of course roddy always comes over and sits with Johnny and then of course the model continues is but it's a panel so johnny would set up You Know Rodney on a couple of topics and if you listened closely you'll hear where he talks about How's your health and Rodney's he's not quite there yet so he takes? He takes a break. Because I'm not there yet so Johnny Oh oh okay. We'll get to that but it it for insiders that know the how the panel went. Johnny would have you know three or four topics to to ask Rodney and I guess health came who soon in the equation and of course my favorite and you got to hang in there until the end. My favorite bit is when Rodney has finished all his material there. He's got nothing and Johnny's not given anything so he just turns to the guest to his right and says So how's it going with you because it just floors Johnny that Rodney's out of material and he's already turned to the other guests. I enjoyed that. I hope you do too anyway. Here it is. Here's a another great episode of the Johnny Carson. Show podcast we've got Karnak and we've got Rodney so give give a listen. I know you're going to enjoy it. I'll see any other side and now ladies and gentleman Johnny Yeah thank you. I'll be I I enjoy. I'll be honest. I enjoyed the applause with amazing. How many people think the show is over.
