The Latest Update on Eric's Late-Night Talk Show

"About a month back, you mentioned you were working on a TV show. What's happening with that project? That show is a reboot of Sanford and son. And it's not going anywhere. Nobody buys me as Lamont. And I said, what about Fred? He said, we don't buy you as Freddie. I said, what about bubba? What about Grady? I just want to play one of the, nobody's buying it. And so I don't know what's going to happen with that. We're working on another project actually to do a late night talk show. And that, where is that? We're probably going to be shooting 5 more shows at the end of June for that. That's the talk show with Eric when taxes, kind of like a Johnny Carson show. So that's a long story. But that is happening. And I'm excited about it. Yeah.

Eric Metaxas and Charlie Catch Up at the NRB Conference

"He's kicking and screaming from his radio program. He's going to be more popular than Johnny Carson on his new show. And he's also a bestselling author. And what a hundred different languages? Oh, at least. At least. Eric metaxas is reputation precedes him. And they say he's a funny guy. And the pretzels are making him thirsty. No one gets that reference. Thank you. Straight over there. Thank you. Not that there's anything wrong with it, Eric, God bless you. How are you doing? I am doing great. I just you cheer me up. That's the kind of person I am. When I'm around people that like you, I just get instantly cheered. You give me hope. I was excited when I heard you were coming on the program. So I really don't have much of an agenda. I mean, what's your story? I have nothing but agenda. Nothing but agenda. No, I don't have an agenda. We were at the NRB, which is itself like I have a love hate relationship with the NRB. It's national religious broadcasters convention, and it's kind of like, first of all, they always hold it where it is right now, which is to say the gay lord resort, blah, blah, blah, which is a terrarium for humans. And as somebody who lives in Manhattan, people say, how can you live in Manhattan? Because it's not like this. Because there's less plastic per square mile. You know, like it's just so bizarre. And people say, you go to Nashville, it's like, no, I'm going to the Gaylord, which is like a, it's like a habit trail. It's a monstrosity. For human beings. And you know, a lot of people like it. And I just want to be clear those people are wrong. But I bump into people here. What makes it fun is that there are so many friends and people here. And it's not as crowded as other conferences, which I actually like. Right. Cpac, so packed. Or conversation. This is actually, in some ways, it's delightful because I do get to mingle and bump into people. Well, like you, who, you know, so it's a lot of fun. My favorite thing, of course,

'Capote's Women' Author Laurence Leamer Writes About People Who 'Live on the Edge'

"I just discovered that there's a new book out called capote's women, it is by Lawrence lemur, the subtitle is a two story of love betrayal and a swan song for an era. It's a beautiful book, and I'm looking forward to talking about it with its author. Lawrence leamer, welcome to the program. Eric, thanks so much for having me. While it's a joy, I have written three pretty long biographies myself and I appreciate the genre. And I think that there's something you can do in a biography that you can't do in any other book. You can bring a period of time alive. It's an extraordinary thing. The time in which Truman Capote lived the 60s in New York, we can't even begin to really imagine what world he lived in. But I actually, you've begun and you've put it in a book. You've written many books on many other fabulous people, most of them taller than Truman Capote, which is saying nothing. You've written about the kennedys. You've written about Johnny Carson. What led you? I know you were a journalist. What led you before we get into this specific book into writing these kinds of books about these celebrated figures? Look, alas, I only have one life to lead. In writing these books, I enter other people's lives. But they've got to be somebody fascinating. They've got to be people who live at the edge. You take chances. That's what I want. With a China car or whether it's the kennedys or JFK or that generation or whoever or Donald Trump for that matter, people live at the edge.

"Care. Who gets the hotel. It's not gonna be him eventually. Newton and tories put together a package to buy the aladdin for eighty five million dollars by that time the value of the resort had diminished. Judge clyburn has given up control and the state had moved to close the casino again until a sale agreement was finalized during all of this. I wound up with a brief interview with carson. I remember calling him in burbank. California and being put on hold now. I'm thinking he's not gonna talk to me. His assistant is going to tell me. He's not available but to my surprise voice came on and said when cousin concluded the interview a few minutes later i had a scoop. He called newton's effort to buy the aladdin. A quote. cutesy publicity stunt. Newton didn't think much of the jab. I think he was confusing himself for me to me. It was just another performer. That decided he wanted to own his own business. There wasn't personal element in my attitude about him negotiating because if the former owners had accepted his deal. Mine was dead in the water. So it wasn't a thing that i couldn't get along with johnny carson. He was the fact that they couldn't get along with. Johnny carson should therefore they gave my offer some validity niagara says that he and carson were not trying to change the deal. They signed one and only one contract on april. Twenty third nineteen eighty. We were we were very angry and berry upset and we knew we had been double-crossed so and we knew that the judge went along with it and at the state went along with it mass. What disappointed me. The most so niagara submitted his resignation to claiborne as the aladdin's court appointed manager carson issued. A news release saying he and niagara were disappointed that their deal had fallen through. He accused the outcast aladdin owners of subjecting him to quote bad faith dealings. He's kid at the end of the release was that he was very concerned of our state's ability to control the gaming industry because here a head licensed editorials and he knew exactly who he was. They had Again sort of passed a ton and kept the mob involved people of the past involved today in nineteen eighty which he considered that unacceptable to him. Johnny tended to be very black and white guy is no gray area. So when he did is he said and what you to leave the state to. Let's just get out of that state if they're going to do things like this and cage miss deal which we knew didn't have narrowed the a chance of success at rs did because of the funds we were putting into the operation niagara says carson stopped appearing on the strip and sold his interest in the local television station k. Vu channel five. Any less to state never came back and that's sad because he was an enormous personality with unlimited coming up remember way newton's effort to get those death threats called off against his young daughter and how we reached out to reputed mob figure guido.

So come play with legends plate at el cortez. Anyone who goes before nevada gaming regulators seeking approval for license knows it sometimes can be an unpleasant experience. Investigators pore over your entire background. Nevada has a two tier system of gaming regulation. There's the gaming control board the investigative agency and then there's the gaming commission the last word you need approval from both agencies at the time. That gaming commission was chaired by harry. Reid an ambitious democrat. Who went on to become majority leader of the us senate over a two day period. September twenty fifth and twenty. Sixth nine thousand nine hundred. Eighty newton appeared separately before the control board and the commission. They went through everything in my life including my dental records. Two or three members of the board were very very anti entertainer. Owning hotel in las vegas and they made it quite clear that they were not thrilled with that and they should to me. You will have to divest yourself of one or two of your friends before we would consider giving you a license. And i said to them an open hearing my friends are not for sale. And if it takes you telling me who my friend is or that. They are not want to because they're a friend of mine are. I'm not wanted because i'm a friend of theirs then i don't want this license and i will never forget now. Senator reached it up and he wayne. You have no idea how refreshing it is to have someone say that to this group told regulators that guido pinault see was a longtime fan and family friend. He did know he was tied to the gambino crime family. Newton testified that he had met panacea at the copa cabana nightclub in new york while performing their he recalled the time. Penelope wave to one hundred dollar bill at him for a song and the young singer refused the money. newton acknowledged. He had seen several other times over the years including a dinner in florida..

"Johnny carson in his bid to buy the aladdin niagara had just left the dell webb corporation to start his own company in search of a casino property. He became good friends with carson. While he ran the sahara for dell webb. We were going to rename it. Johnny carson latin in my company was going to have the management contract to operate it event management contract. I have cared and it was ironclad as johnny night at one agreement with each other and it was very important. If he and i were going to be involved he would put his name on it. And i would run it and no one else would operated but mike niagara says carson plan to bring in broadway shows to the land theater for the performing arts and build a television studio to broadcast the tonight. Show live from this trip for a good portion of the year about the same time federal. Judge harry claiborne. Who had black the state from shutting down the aladdin while it sought a new owner wanted niagara to take over management of the strip resort. The state had barred the alleged owners from having any role in operating the casino after the company's federal conviction in detroit forgiving the on hidden management interests. Once go set up shop at the aladdin. He saw that. The financial books were a mess. Internal company controls more being followed. It was wide open. Took the whole team of twenty and we were able to shut down. All of the leaks of the money going everywhere. I think we had like twenty or thirty outstanding markers. It wasn't necessarily a large float but a lot of old plants were being collected. And i found that they were issuing markers to people. They wanted to pay and they were collecting them. Nagla says revenues were being diverted from the bar operations. We had liquor coming in. It wasn't bought by us and being sold. Imagine if you can bring liquor bottles to one of your beat is it's very busy. Then come through purchasing and then you just take that money out because you don't have an inventory but you so bad you're you're just shows lower volume at day. You don't know if we're purchasing scans to the aladdin was paying for things that were never delivered. Uk a company sends you an invoice. And you pay. It never got anything from their company niagara recalls the time when richard daley one of the aladdin owners sanctioned by the state wanted to pay what he said where legal bills he sent me about almost a million dollars in legal face various law firms. It was funny because there was a half a million dollar bill for mars shankar. I was shankar the dunes hotel and was one of jimmy hoffa's lawyers hoffa the iconic. Teamsters union boss played a key role in the development of the las vegas trip through loans to casinos from the unions. Mob-dominated pension fund hoffa disappeared in july. One thousand nine hundred seventy five and was presumed murdered by the mob niagara was dumbfounded by dailies request. So i look at this. This bills and i call richard up. I said richard. I you serious you really want meet. You think i'm really going to. Hey these without a judge's approval to pay it out of aladdin corporate business accounts he said. Yes an has so. I went denied all havens since the requested. The judge in the judge never answered me. But these were the kind of things that i don't know would another receiver of eight him. I certainly wasn't going to. I even knew numerous very well and it was no attachments to it. Just a bill for half a million dollars. No hours no anything. Not even low spore so. I called acid modest. Wha what is this. He said it's just something. I said who is just something you want to pay pay. Don't wanna pay pay them. Okay with nigel at the helm of the aladdin. Johnny carson's chances of buying the joint look pretty good. We improve the cash flow in the member. They were losing a lot of money. But we improve cash flow by over four million dollars in four months then came the good news. The april twenty third one thousand nine hundred headline in one vegas newspaper read quote. Aladdin gets new genie's johnny carson and ed niagara had signed a letter of intent to buy the lead for one hundred and three million dollars a day earlier niagara had brief nevada gaming regulators about the deal in the chambers of federal judge harry claiborne. We didn't sign the letter. Intent to we had all agreements in place all of financing in place. And the money that was going into a ten million that was going in the first year. Five million directly into the company or fifteen million was all janis money. People don't understand that those days johnny carson was making twenty thirty million a year off and nbc thirty million a year. Now johnny was the real thing he was the real deal. This was not a deal that might or might not happen. This was in place. And that's why we announced an even with the letter attempt because we get jump through. Hoops says the aladdin still wasn't financially stable. And carson agreed to poor five million dollars into its operations immediately after taking over so the real risk danger to the aladdin had already happened. It was on going out business curve. Because it's future bookings were almost nonexistent so you had to be able to sustain operations. During that time you started to build your business now once we will go to announce it was johnny carson's lad not folks were lighting up like you couldn't believe all the agents in the world wanted their stars appearing with us but it's amazing how quickly fortunes can change in las vegas. The day after the letter of intent was signed. Aladdin owner started moving to unwind. The agreement niagara says the owner setup. newton's deal with torres who had been previously licensed by the state despite concerns about some of his past business conduct toys was indicted in nineteen sixty seven on tax charges related to an alleged skimming operation at the fremont where he was a top executive but the charges were dismissed allowing tourists to become a major stockholder. Vieira in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty eight. He went on to run other casinos with newton onboard. It would be a clear path for tories to get licensed at the aladdin. Here's niagara wayne. Lewis a prominent name in las vegas of very good entertainer in las vegas but he also was They believed would be an easy partner because he was not an operator would not be operating it. It was very clear ready. tories was. Newton says the alleged owners simply soured on carson's deal. Because he kept changing the terms he agreed to the purchase price and the minute he agreed to that and all of the people accepted that offer. Hayden changed backed out of it. And so that's why. I think the carson fiasco if you will turned into four and five offers that he would back out of and then make them a lesser offer to dissent that he insulted them and they called me one night because i had made a backup offer still to be negotiated but at least they knew there was a second offer there. I came off stage at the sands where i was appearing and i get a call and they should. Is your offer a good for the aladdin purchase. I should yes and they should will be here at eight o'clock in the morning will sign the papers were through with carson.

His show was a must see for any tourist. Johnny carson was nbc's topdog a power to be reckoned with in hollywood. His long reign over late night television was responsible for a massive share of nbc's prophets. It seemed like everybody watched the tonight show before they went to bed. Carson was also well connected to las vegas. He co owned a television station and perform stand up comedy on weekends at the sahara and caesar's palace. He was popular in his own right. On the strip for years the two men were friendly and professional newton had even been asked to guest host for carson several times during some thirty appearances on the show in nineteen seventy four appearance newton and carson discuss ranching and working in vegas you work more than any other performer.

Aladdin hotel carson started skewering newton in monologues. He was very very angry with me and started dealing chokes on his show and having other comedians. Join in with those jokes about my lack of manhood. I guess is the best way to set. This went on for about two to three years. And i contacted his agent. I contacted his friends. I tried to contact him. Of course he refused my call but it just continued and there was no rhyme or reason for it no truth in fact at all it was just his being so been outta shape. I had ended up with a hotel so one day. As newton tells the story he simply walked in the carson's office unannounced and told him he'd kick his butt if the nasty monologue jokes didn't stop but moving the aladdin beyond mob associations would take a lot more than a newton versus carson competition in fact in old friend who helped newton in an hour of mean tight organized crime to the aladdin once more and turn newton's reputation upside down the whole thing turned into a nightmare boy the fact that i was on television accused of fronting for the mob.

"Night feed island. When i was really young. I began by listening to late night. Shows from bedroom down the hole in my house in brooklyn. My dad would be up late watching and laughing. I can still hear that laughter. Dad was a big fan of steve allen. Who started the whole thing on. Nbc's tonight show in the nineteen fifties. Steve allen has had a huge influence on all the late night hosts who followed especially with the wild stunts used to try like diving into a tub jello. Continued doing stuff like that david. Letterman once famously jumped against a wall wearing a velcro suit. Dad got a lot of laughs. Out of things like alan covering himself in teabags and jumping into a pool then he got a different kind of laugh from the next tonight host. Jack parr who conversation and wit in hollywood one day. You're putting your footprints in cement. The next day nixing it and then came the king. When i was very very young might first memories are watching johnny carson. That's the voice of one of tv's latest and freshest late night hosts amber ruffin and him.

How Desi Invented Television

"Does he says was born in santiago cuba rich powerful family. He loves to joke about it on old talk shows here. He is on the tonight show with johnny carson. My father was the mayor of my hometown. 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. But there was a revolution not the castro one the one before that and the arneses fled to miami. Miami in the thirties is growing hugely and a young desi tries his hand at theatre and music and movies. Eventually he becomes a popular bandleader as well. This is the preview of a new ban. And we're confident that in a very short time you'll be hearing a lot more about desi arnez and his orchestra not just hearing about them dancing to them. Desi arnez started the craze of the congo line. Boop boop boop of robert. This is a scene from the movie called. Too many girls in the ad for it literally goes to many girls film on the arcadio sound lot in nineteen forty and in this same a young gorgeous desi arnez is leading a line of dancers to the congo. Now robert i do not wanna overestimate how crazy nuts. This scene is. It looks like i dunno. Imagine a halftime super bowl. Dance number with congas fire jugglers trapeze artists studying. There's no such thing as too many congolese. now now. this is just the movie version. In our memoir. 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. Lucy ends up with somebody else but on the set of the movie but two of them hooked up fell in love and would eventually marry. They set their sights on a way to spend more time together. 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. Say who the hell is going to believe this Baba loo pharaohs. yeah cheap. it american girl you know. Yeah he ain't. Bob lou fellow and she certainly is not a typical american girl so dizzying lucy decide. Hey let's go out and prove it. So they went on tour across the united states remembered as e is a bandleader. And so at the end of the shows lucy would come out and do little skits dot com now in this famous scene. Lucie is dressed as a showgirl and she's singing so every time she goes boom sticky. Boom she swivels her hips and every time she does disease hat falls off. 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

Hbo max but his late night tv talk show hosting duties will be done in twenty twenty. Conan is brilliant. And we talk more about this. With matt miller to me conan really opened my eyes big time about the tv business and just pretty much anything in show business. 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. They wanted something more bland. They wanted more comedic or or or they want right. They want jay leno. jay leno was safe. Jalen was familiar at so he got such a raw deal.

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.

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?

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.

"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. So she was closer to her mother. But then he was a good father and carry visited him often as she got older. In nineteen seventy nine Nancy had been on her own for three years and it had been nine years since she had spoken to her high school sweetheart mark rainy. Nancy and mark were children together and their parents were really good friends. So in their parents would get together when they were kids Nancy and mark would play together along with their siblings. 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 whole place goes nuts Amy what is this magical for truly is yes okay all right our people are actually missing airline food at this time really traveling well of the perfect truth that they've sold I think twenty thousand of those little jet blue tried she's traced something for two ninety nine which is a really good deal for cheese yeah that is there is a really good deal so okay this is so it's imperfect food such tell tell tell tell us but in perfect foods well on the third is imperfect produce and they told Bob produce that was like really kind of weirdly shaped and they would just bring it to your house it was like if he if they shared with your cheap produce our own they've already has a our old traffic the person of the great as morale the Leon subscribe to that and she takes she takes a step to it she takes pictures of her of her weird looking shovel so I guess since then they've expanded to surplus groceries and the airlines they are obviously they have lots of surplus now so in particular taking it off their hands and passing it on and it's just it's the these are from jet blue and it's it's so it's not like full it's not like a full meal it's like a snack plate yes I've never flown jet blue so I don't know how much they charge for it but you know she fixed mixed cheeses dried cherries and crackers and it's just two ninety nine yes and he didn't pretend you're on a plane yeah that's the fun part right there yeah they bring in that they bring in that pre packaged meal on the plane I've never flown jet blue myself either I'm not Gen Tommy ever flown JetBlue cancer have yeah so I don't know what it's really nice you know I hear I hear really good things about JetBlue and this is a nice thing that they're doing this is pretty cool well a lot of our commenters have been saying that they've been on the waiting list for a perfect suit and they haven't been able to get it if they're new to it I see I see so there's a waiting list like a lot of stuff that's being offered now there's a there's a nose along everything and there's a long wait for everything now so we should get used to it I'm you know because we're sitting on the couch anyway we may as well wait what else we gonna do enough time has no meaning anymore yeah yeah that's true as we were saying earlier sometimes and even know what day it is just kind of like you know some or even a month we were talking about that for like what month is it this may it can tell by the weather here no you can't you can't what we we are gonna get some rain now evidently the from storms making its way making their way through starting Thursday night from what I hear okay so I change M. perfect food delivering authentic airline food which mixed cheese dried cherries and crackers for just two ninety nine is there a link where people can order this or the seasons waiting list right yeah there's a link to our website some of the take out to imperfect suits okay in perfect for you could just get thank you just a Google search okay in perfect foods did now so they do they say they still do vegetables too right yes they still didn't get batch double yeah okay because I've seen some you know it was really funny because that's where all these take pictures of of of the faith of the vegetables that they would ship tour because you never know what you're gonna get they would just send you you know it's not like you ordered you know green peppers or something like that it's what whatever imperfect vegetables they have they sent you correct isn't it it's not like it's like kind of like you can say well you know I'm interested in that the knock back okay well she's to take pictures of the of the imperfect vegetables and sometimes they didn't looking perfect yeah did that ever happen to you anywhere you you said well this looks fine I mean you know they always all kind of perfect anyway so yeah they're delicious yeah well you can yeah I mean you can't let that food go to waste because it with the idea behind the in perfect food and the perfect vegetables is that for some reason aesthetically people won't buy if you put them on the if you put them in the produce section at your jewel or your grocery store people look at it and go now that looks weird I'm not going to buy that and you don't want another base and their surplus here maybe in a somebody grew too many yeah that might be the case but yeah I don't know I think it's a great idea I I I I love the idea of the imperfect vegetables are being delivered very very cool okay any hang on okay okay all right any

I like the way you put thanks so much but I want thank you also because you you gave me a topic to move on to if anybody wants to comment on that can you go to any of these events anymore do you still watch them used to protest but of course the arrogance of them I said that already they have no clear at eighteen fifty percent of your audience you don't currently answer probably isn't is that they don't care let me know what you think.

"Is forty eight degrees in the American standard. Cooling weather center. The time is seven sixteen. A little more on. What's going on in Tipton there? This is a has met situation, Barra for them. Bring you back in here. I wanna make sure I I understand the situation. I mean, this isn't gonna fact most people driving in today. But as a situation, it's certainly one that requires our attention. This is a a an overturned. Call it a trailer crash thirty one near state route twenty eight and what is leaking is hundred clerk asset. That's what's leaking right now all over the area. So there have been some levels of, of a vacuum Asian because of this, and while again, I mean, a little bit of traffic issue, of course, but. The, the bigger story here is that you gotta vacuum. And I don't yet know exactly how big Matt evacuations are going to get right? Right now, as I understand it there. Vacuity people from state road, twenty eight to division road, which is a small county road there in Tipton county, but it's about a mile distance of K, and according to Kevin Rodman wish TV and he's on seeing they're doing a great job. This cloud of hydrochloric acid can be seen from mile away. So this is this is a pretty serious situation. There is definitely want to be avoided if you happen to be going to Kokomo this morning as I understand this closure is going to extend from state route twenty eight up to Howard county in Kokomo. So this is a pretty big deal here in. And again, I just want everybody to avoid this area, just state road twenty eight both directions. Thirty one closed right now. Yes. Avoiding it is the right thing to do. We're going to keep our eyes on this throughout the morning, and see how this develops maybe get with Kevin Rodman, and get some updates from him map bear in the WBZ traffic center. Thank you me. Tony cats. Ninety three WIBC. Good morning, everybody. The popcorn. The Twitter's good for. Somebody posted audio from Johnny Carson. Back in nineteen eighty eight. Now to understand this. You have to understand that Joe Biden has a history of plagiarism. He had plagiarism going back to nineteen eighty eight when he was still running for president. He was the Senator from Delaware. And most recently when he put out his climate plan is ten dollar climate plan. He's cribbed lines took lines in that speech from something called the blue green alliance and the carbon capture coalition. I mean, not just an idea. Actual lines full on points. No, nineteen Eighty-eight the plagiarism kept him from really running for president. Because he took. Whole concepts and phraseology. And this was from a leader, a political leader in the UK by the name of Neil Kinnock K. I N K I think pronounce his name properly. So this is why it's back in the news, this conversation of plagiarism and somebody posted on Twitter. This from Johnny Carson back in eighty eight on a political candidates. Senator Joseph Biden, have using the problem. He's been having around and made a speech and apparently,.

"So bear with me. It's just value over replacement player and every single one of these players either stayed the same or got worse. How many stayed the same? One. Okay. So I- nine guys listed everyone's got worse having out worse one same. And one guy better in. That's the following year. The next year they play which sometimes might have been a year and a half later. Okay. So the one player that got better Dominique Wilkins, Lou dominee. Now what, what did Kevin Durant her? Achilles guy. Nice entry Toko. How's your speech? Looks like I got a double up on the classes guidance. NT toko. That is footage audio footage for your lessons out. That's how I used to say it is she hot? Let's let's guidance Antetokounmpo when she sounds foreign. Yeah. Think exotic in a way. Not my. No one wants to know that. I mean. There's never been the proper use of this and. Career. He's doing man. What's brilliant about that? Did you know what you did there? No. So that's Hank, Kingsley from the Larry Sanders show. And he was he was modeled after at McMahon, and you did the and McMahon to Johnny Carson that was clever. That was just serendipity. I guess. Yeah. He goes, all right? I would you let us use VoIP as the gauge if I say, if we look at this year's number. Well, that's interesting. Yet multiple years. The beat it. Now, I guess, I still would make that bed, though. I wouldn't love that bad, because the theory is he has a stray off year. But here's the thing, typically the first year back, the player suffers his performance. Second, your back suffers less third year back. He's back. But Durant gonna be how old at that point like thirty four. The theory is a thirty four year drank can't play like a twenty nine year old Durant. And we saw LeBron this year. And now the question with LeBron is he's a physical freak in a way that, you know, in a positive way that I don't think dran is though, his wingspan, and I mean, like durability, just body. I mean, he, he spends, you know what is multiple millions a year, just travelling, you know, nutritionists and massage? I mean, here's a team goes where the sleep thing that they did it, listen, the guy I tell you this. When LeBron went down you never worried about him getting up. I know this year he finally. But how many times it he go down in a pile and go back up? I mean, you know, that's actually a good segue into this, because we're going to have a reoccurring theme. It's when Brad cries. Girls gone wild. So you're on record. For crying when Tiger Woods. Yeah. One masters and to me, it was like I get why people around, you know, you're young, you're thirty five or so a mid forties. Fezzes much older moving towards sixty like freaking freight train and. Like a greater. Night train. But the funny thing is. On the fog show and guys we've been hitting our stride Br all jobs out. Brad's been killing it. But we were talking about how, you know, money on the weightlifting Darah wasn't here. He goes, oh man strength. That's why he's there with Freddie van. He's there to give him some support and some muscle thank about it. I don't want to okay? Give him some muscle. Is that what these kids are calling today? So now it's pretty good. So now we could have Brad towels what he said, but luckily, we got the sound I cried not afraid to minute. I cry. Oh, I like the music. Interests like the masters music. You know, it's interesting. It took a lot of cutting to get.

She can't even go through a YouTube video stream without taking a break for a drink. This is a woman that has an alcohol problem. I mean, if you can't do your live setup without without having to have a little alcohol, then you got a drink problem. Do you know, they probably had a production crew a dozen people there, and they have these these these cards, you know, that Johnny Carson used to have first monologues Fanta card there. I'm speculating here. And it said I'm going to get me a beer and then Bruce injure from stage left. And say, Bruce, you must say. You. And then she slamming him on the chest. Couple of times.
