"The improvisation for the Christopher guest movies is really liberating one because he shoots it shoots and shoots and shoots. So you don't have to worry about you know nailing joker making it interesting or making it funny because that's his job. We stay organic as we can in the given circumstances of the scene and. Usually, something funding will come out of that. Welcome back to working I'm your host. Ramana. Lung and I'm your host June Thomas. June we just heard the voice of Jane Lynch and a very recognizable voice. It is Jane is your guests this week and she really doesn't need. An introduction but I'M GONNA. Try. Jane. Lynch. Has Been a recurring performer on sitcoms two and a half men on dramas criminal minds. She's been in major screen comedies like the forty year old virgin as well as the beloved Indie mockumentary Christopher guest like best in show a mighty wind. Lynch. Of course, one of the stars of a program that I know you're very fond of glee but now she's taken on a whole other kind of role. Yes for the last few years, she's been strutting her stuff as TV game show host. Since two thousand thirteen, she's been on Hollywood game night, which is sounds like a TV version of when you is Cameron and I get together in one of our mentions to play silly games only in Herkus with Bela celebs instead of a listers like uh us and since September of this year, she's hosted weakest link, which is a revival of the British game show that I came to these shores in two thousand one with an Robinson at the helm. Robinson. Of course, was a sadistic sue sylvester even before sue Sylvester existed. June do you think I'm being hopelessly American? If I say that I think Britain's have a particular. Fundus. For the quiz show. Now I absolutely agree with you Brits Adore, a quiz show and the TV companies provide a lot for them to choose from when I go home to England I spend hours watching quiz and game shows on television and I like a bit of Trivia as much as the next woman but I think I mostly watch them because of the insane commitment of many of their hosts like for example, those this show called tipping point is on every single day and it's gimmick because all. Quiz shows need a gimmick is that when contestants get a question, right? They get an entry in what's basically this like giant coin push shove hip knee type arcade game, which is where they can make their big bunny and so the host this kind of bland White Gyco ben Shepard he treats the random falling of these like thin metal. This is if it were chess or some kind of test of skill on the part of the contestants who typically do not have any contact whatsoever with these discs and then as they're falling down, he narrates it like you know. What. Like it's something serious..

"Did, the road trip up was a real fast turnaround in there were some bumps on that road to. Which I talk about it in another podcast and Dan's podcast, and now here we are. So. Creative there's another podcast that I think you'll really like. So how does it opera singer learn a new role? How does an actress find the perfect accent for her character? What is the director of a TV drama actually do all day those are the questions that remain alum Isaac Butler and June Thomas put to creative people every week on working learn how writers outlined novels how composers get jobs and get paid and how Youtube creators learn to look into the camera lens listened to work from slate every Sunday on apple podcasts spotify or wherever you listen. Hi, this is Cara Swisher and I wanNA talk to you about my new podcast for the New York Times called sway if you WanNa know what people who hold power in our world are really all about you need to hear how they answer the tough questions and that is my specialty, and although it might get messy as it always does it's also going to be really fun. You can get sway wherever you get your podcasts. New episodes are available Mondays and Thursdays. Well. So, many questions come from. You know it's funny that you brought up the thing you've alluded to it, and I remember that very distinctly throughout the book. So I am curious I mean as somebody who has built a career that crew clearly requires a level of sustained attention I know this because I'm a writer myself I mean if you're writing pieces for the New York Times, you're reading a book. How do you do that? How do you manage that when you have the attention issues that you do? Yeah. It's a great question Not Easily is what I would say. I mean there's a few different ways to answering one. The big big picture way is what I've found whether people have found is there's are natural proclivity with attention and then there are these cycles underneath that were there are periods in your life. When you find, you may just be naturally a little bit more concentrated ones a little bit last so. When I just naturally cycle into those more concentrated periods, I get more work done. So there is sort of that rhythm that's Kinda and I don't really understand that rhythm it's it seems to be. It's dependent sometimes in what's happening externally, but it also is just its own thing. and. Then there's the meditation. So within meditation, there are periods when your practices, maybe the same correspondence when your practice is going well when it's not going as well when my so in periods when I practice is going well, and in terms of the concentration piece, that's when it's much easier for me to do all that stuff. Easier, to write. Easier. To. Meditate. When the practice is not going as well it tends to be the concentration piece at flags for me, but there are many many many skills that are being developed in meditation concentration is probably the main and most important one. But I would say as important as the skilled equanimity and I can unpack that because it's please dirty much peerless life skill. then. Sensor clarity friendliness so. The equanimity is. This is the one that was a big surprise for me when I started practicing I had no concept for really. The wave, my teacher shins end talks about it is lack of. Friction lack of pushing and pulling on experience. So you could say it's openness, but it's a very particular. Way in which you find this openness by not you really you learn. How most the time we're sort of very subtly braced against certain experiences..

"For audio fiction to really work. The images need to exist inside the listeners head. And it needs to be kind of effortless into the need to know what's going on. effortlessly. And I guess with a pretty good radioed drama. That's what I'm considered. Welcome back to working I'm your host Vermont along and I'm your other host. June Thomas, the voice we just heard belongs to John Scott Dryden a man who's worked can't easily be distilled into one noun as well here in this interview. June, this conversation reveals you once again as culturally omnivorous you know John Dryden's work because you're a fan of the audio play, which is a form that he produces. Yes. Thank you for that wonderful flattery remind I haven't lived in Britain for nearly forty years but one of the ways I'm still really very culturally British is I love to listen to radio drama that's Buca petitions or radio place these days fictional podcasts as someone who's a professional podcasters. I sometimes actually feel a little bit guilty about how many hours I spend listening to plays and books of the week instead of catching up on podcast. But I really love it. You know it's funny because I just feel like the audio drama, it's just outside my own experience and maybe that's because it's just a cultural. National attitude towards this particular form I think in the states we have this sort of deep relationship to our regional NPR stations, but we don't have that sort of national allegiance like the Brits due to the BBC. The BBC is sort of great entertaining equalizer. We don't really have that in this culture absolutely I think the British fondness for the BBC and all the arguments that sparks because it's not pure unadulterated. Love you. I that love then generates a lot of arguments in a lot of feelings. I think that's really unfathomable to Americans just like our love for the. NHL. The BBC May Dominate TV, these days a little bit less in the streaming era but it still the big player in radio and actually in podcasts in Britain and when it comes to online news and every single day on BBC radio four, there are plays and serialized adaptations of boots, and there's even more on the digital. RADIO FOR EXTRA OR RADIO FOR A. And I don't know about you. But when I go to the theater in New York I, always consult playable to see which law and orders actress bitten. Well in Britain, most of the actors have a long list of radio credits it's a thing you know I'm kind of jealous I. Wish we had this radio culture, it sounds very civilized. So I'm wondering if your love of the form generally that I made you aware of the work of John Scott Dryden. Yeah. In a way back in two thousand fifteen when it wasn't as easy as it is noted as listen to BBC radio in the US at least on your phone, I noticed the BBC was releasing an audio drama called Tuman Bay as an episodic podcast and I listened and I was really interested when there was a same sex relationship on the show. So I interviewed John Dryden for outward and a little bit later he actually came to work in our offices because he was running scripted content for panoply, which is now megaphone and is assist company of slate so. I know him a little bit. He's no made several podcast for US networks including passenger list which run on Radio Topiary, and we'll be back for another season at some point soon and Tuman Bay, which was what I brought him to my attention just finished its fourth and final season in the UK and it to is coming to the US very soon. Now that it's easier to listen to the BBC I've learned to recognize his work from the style and the setting. She usually quite internationally focused very rich and sound and very modern sending. The conditions of quarantine might actually create a place in our cultural market. For this form to catch on stateside because you know, no one's producing big movies that you could in theory produce a podcast although that said way that John's Cartwright and works is different from the way that you might think he works so. We should probably just let him speak for himself and listen in on your conversation with John Scott. Triton. Things are a little weird right. Now, the sudden change in the world and the world of business has created new challenges. A lot of companies are struggling to keep up with what matters most their customers. Zen Desk is here to help. They have put together a six month complimentary remote support. Bundle? It helps support teams keep up with changing customer.

You're a man who has a million hacks for everything it's true it's true and and I'm thinking about actually writing about this for a couple of different reasons. The first thing is I'll just give you the short answer which is actually talking to clinical psychologists about how to get through this individually and also as a culture. The list is pretty simple about what you're supposed to do. First of all the fight against that feeling that you talked about David routine and rudeness in the day is is important. Because it probably not for you because you have your own Packages of propulsion but for a lot of us were propelled by the routine of our normal day. It gives us then propulsion towards the things that give us meaning whether it's work or relationships or whatever if you lose your structure than you can kind of fishtail around Which not only means. You're not productive if you're out of a job what is productive activity mean but it means you lack that routine and therefore you lack propulsion which means you're not in touch with meaning so you need to find some kind of routine for the purposes of a routine and that keeps you stable the other stuff. That's simple which everybody knows is exercise connection and staying off of social media. Which is my friend. David pointed out does. That's all the stuff you're supposed to do even when you're not in a situation like the one we're in.

I someone like Lorenzo who I mean. He's he's in dental school. He's going to be a dentist. He psyched to be a dentist. Is this a good use of time to right? So I think it's a great use of time communicating. Well because people are fundamentally creative beings the truth is we're at the top of the food chain because we have ideas and we're creative so whether you build in you know a train system across the US are fixing you know. Someone's teeth no matter what it is. You will be a creative being and to not completely fulfill that in your life is to do everything less a whole back part of who you are men. My dentist is Great. I go to a dentist. Who He's about sixty five. Maybe getting up on seven years old. I fly to Los Angeles for the last twenty years to go to this guy. He reads me his poetry. While I'm going numb he recites poetry while he's drilling my teeth or giving me a root canal and it's a huge part of the experience for me. I you know I. I might have a an appointment for you in Montreal when the La dentist is ready to retire. The really the really advantage to this is that you'd have so much cotton and stuff in my mouth. I wouldn't be able to walk exactly you're just going to have to. You're just going to have to listen. What are you going to do? This was so much fun. This was a pleasure to hang out with you and learn. Thanks Oh and I salute you for having the courage to just sit and play a song.

"And I was like, oh, wouldn't it be nice to like have a love letter from like famous lesbians? I don't think I'm gonna find something book. So it's edited by k Turner who has a really really great and fascinating introduction. And in general, it's just kind of a bracing voyeuristic in a very good way to be part of this sort of intimate exchange. I think a lot of collections of letters offer that but particularly this one because you're Trud Stein is a part of it. There's a lot of amazing like playfulness with language, and which sort of takes the idea, like, a couple's language or inside jokes to another level. You can really see like the comfort they brought each other and their daily lives how they take care of each other. But also a lot of them are about poop. So one thing I learned in the introduction to this book is that for a long time people reading the letters from Gertrude Stein in the ones from Alice veto Klis thought that the phrase having a cow and the cow was like about. But actually, it's about poop like, and I think that it was partially a sexual thing for them, you know, sort of like baby play, I guess, you might call it. I think I'm like speculating a little bit here. But but Kay Turner does say say so that in her introduction that that was probably part of it. But yeah, a lot of the poems have to do with poop. So it's really fascinating. I feel like I'm seeing a whole 'nother side to these like historical figures who I've always found incredibly exciting. Why don't you want to read a wedding? We I guess if I hadn't explained it on this podcast read it in the book, they we could have just glossed over those lines and pretend that they weren't about poop. But now that I know. I think I'm going to have to find something else. So listeners if you have any recommendations for other great wedding, readings we're like down to a month, and we still have to think of something. So. But yeah, I do recommend the book. It's it's really a a pretty quick read and a lot of fun. Well, all right. That's our show.

We also have a listener chatter. We have a ton of great listener Chatters this week. This was even better than the usual week. I know I said it's every week this week. It was there were like ten each of which would be worthy of of of chattering. And so. I just would say please keep them coming to at slate. Gab fest on Twitter, tell us great topic worthy of discussion at your cocktail party today. Jared Novak at Jared Nova sends us a very small charming story about captures. You know, captures are the things that you have to do to to get validated as a human being so that you can buy tickets somewhere or get access to your Email, or whatever it is. It's a it's a thing that tries to keep robots out of of technology out of getting access to things they shouldn't get access to and there's a new capture test that's being designed, and it's been designed to take advantage of the fact that humans are dumber than robots, and so it's it's one it's a series of questions. This is an Amazon proposal to series of questions which humans answer wrong because they make sort of predictable cognitive errors about counting the number of letters in a in a sentence or or getting tricked by sentence to thinking an answer must be one thing. When actually there's a totally obvious other answer because of. The nature of who we are. And I love the idea that we are that were so dumb that our dumbness can give us an advantage over the robots. So let's let's hope that works probably the robots learn to be stupid soon.

"Say, Sheryl Sandberg or June. Thomas ornery Malone. It's more often a marketing term, tapping into third wave feminist five to encourage an attitude as our own Christina. Carucci explains in a fabulous dissection of the term in slate to encourage an attitude of self possession and bad assery. So is one view company writes the lady bosses, you're confident, alter ego, a no BS take action, get it done. No compromise woman. She is the boss of herself who f- Noreen. What is? Can you just paint for us a picture of a boss lady like what? What is the boss lady like? Like what? What's her? What's her personality? Well, a boss lady is someone who I, what I'm interested in here is that it like. Gets at unapologetic femininity along with this sort of Wilson power of it. All like when I think of a boss lady or or girl boss, I think girl bosses and important permutation that we should not forget here. That's sort of like the millennial boss lady who has a, you know, a solid Instagram flowing to go along with her, her boardroom presence. I think of those you as ever read those, like how I get it done, kind of productivity style thing. I know everyone. Everyone reads them all the time. It's like the dirty secret of the internet is that those do weirdly good traffic because we're all obsessed with reading about how other people live. But but I feel like a boss lady is one of those people who's like get up at five thirty and my Pilates instructor comes, you know, then I spend ten minutes meditating, and I like, you know, take like pair and kale out for their morning walk. Those are neither children are dogs, I don't know. And you know, then I answer Email for an hour, and then I turned off my phone for the rest of the. So she's highly productive, but then she makes time later for a manicure. And you know, she has one sort of elegant glass of wine later with her friends. So she's sort of like it's the, it's the modern version of kind of the having it all trope. The boss lady is totally in command of her emotions, and she's better than you at everything and she's not apologizing for it. She's not feeling bad about being, you know, sort of leaving anyone in her wake. She's she's not. She doesn't need to read like management guides on like how to, you know how to get a raise at work. She was right one, slim exactly. Is that do you think that's a fair assessment of the boss? Lady a hate women. I wanna be a woman anymore Ana. He'll just like a lot of torture. I don't understand why every generation women have to invent it prototype to torture themselves, like it's either a prototype that's like too skinny or a prototype that like does everything. It's like there's. Always always a sort of impossible ideal. Why why? Why can't we have like dad Bod? Why do we have to have boss lady? Sometimes my body is the dad, bud, three freeing. I'm going to defend the lady boss boss lady girl bus because I think often, even though I actually have no friends like this, and it's not really a type of person that I tend to get along with. I understand the impulse because very often the person who would describe yourself that way is not exactly the person that you're talking about, Hannah this amazingly high achieving the woman who does everything more beautifully than you. It's not really somebody who's really striving and is not happy with where they are and Kant get onto a louder that will allow them to move up and so are kind of building their own ladder and they, you know, they're kind of re essentially repeating mantras to kind of in to site themselves up on just to kind of tell the world maybe to paint a pitch of this a little brighter than it might be inactive.
