Sterling K. Brown

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcast. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along with US my guest. This week is another good one. I think actor Sterling K. Brown you know of course as one of the stars of the hit. Nbc Show. The people have to watch with a full box of tissues. This is us the tear jerker now in its fourth season. An amazing cast of which Sterling K. Brown is an Emmy and Golden Globe winning member joining me now is always the producer of this fine podcast and the producer of these sterling k. Brown interview for this week Maggie Law. Hey Maggie before we get to the important business of this interview the more important. It's more important as we spoke last. Maggie law is engaged. Get Nice yes. My eyes are blind reflection in this fluorescent lights. Thank you so much thank you. Thank you like me yet your fiance for one hundred years. One hundred Actually ten we met at a boarding school and we've been dating since the end of junior year of high school. Yeah so so. We share that. Yes beginning junior in high school right. We did it for a long time. Broke up a little while a little break and then we found each other again. But we'll say we did not have a little break ten years strong and here we are. I'm telling you deep roots are good for the marriage. Graduation Cam very excited. And let's talk about our interview Sterling K. Brown is a guide. Met a couple times. Didn't know well had really high hopes for the interviews faced on what I know of them is being sort of Like a smart interesting guy but also the serve electric speaker and presents and I have to say. He exceeded everything for electric. I think it's a way to say it. He really I feel like he brought it to the interview. And just the nicest guy you just love when you meet them and they're just so nice and they say everybody in the room just like there too. I feel like he really brought it to the one of those people. You hope they'll be who you think. They actually was. He I think part of that is is that he's earned his place. We talk a lot about this in an interview. He was sort of on this. Thirteen year grind small roles. Tv He says. Look I was happy. Acting was paying the bills. I bought a house but hadn't had that sort of big break in Hollywood and then in the fall of two thousand sixteen along comes people that was rising he'll he won the emmy for that right people versus Oj Simpson. We played Johnny Cochran. That was earlier in two thousand sixteen and then shortly after this is US comes up. That's it really was the crazy thing for. I think now things are stupid good. She's always good now. They're stupid again. A little background for people. I know you like to paint a picture in your mind as you listened to these interviews of where we are where a place called the Public Theater. New York City of famous famous place that so many of the actors adventure to say every famous actor you know has played a part there or started there in New York City. And we're upstairs in the library there. Yeah Sterling actually sweat. He asked to do the interview. It's one of his favorite spots. He went to Grad school at Nyu so right nearby and he said when he was in school there every dreamed of performing at the public at some point. You always wanted to do Shakespeare in the park and everything like that. Eventually he got to do a show there. I think twenty fourteen and so he requested to it there. That was great spot. And then you'll hear later we get up walk around a little bit in Washington Square and very cool moments of a place. He used to walk around dreaming of being somebody right in that business. He draws the crowds. We walk in the park and boom flies. Honey came on to Sterling K. Brown all those. This is US fans. His new film is called waves. It's a lot about fatherhood. He's Kinda Domineering Dad. In this movie he lost his own father in real life at the age of ten To me it was the best moment of the interview. You can listen and see if you agree when he started just going into the story of the day and I will say I in an interview setting. It's hard to sometimes because the lights and there's people around to get lost in the emotion. It was as emotional as I remember viewing really. You're really feeling it that moment. He was so first of all. I'm just grateful that anyone would share such a personal story. Really has that with me Of the day his father died and he was ten years old. I have a ten year old son. I think part of that hit me ask. What would it be like if I left my ten year? Old Son An unexpectedly in in such a sudden way and he remembers every detail the day in. He volunteered it. You know. It's not something I would ask him to describe because it is so traumatic man. Did he go there? Yeah he did. It was really emotional. But it felt special that he was able to share with you and significant. Because it's how he tapped into characters in waves but also in this awesome us. Yeah Cathartic moment for him able to sort of say goodbye to his dad in a way. Okay we've described the interview. Just let Sterling K. Brown tell the story himself Sterling K. Brown right now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast sterling. Thanks for doing this great to see you got a Lotta history to talk about you in this neighborhood. You in this theater stomping grounds dude. I went to Nyu from ninety eight two. Oh one I lived one astor place right around the corner and so the public was this fixture like this beacon of when we get out of school. Maybe we'll get a chance to work at the public. Maybe we'll get a chance to do Shakespeare in the park and got a chance to work here on a couple of occasions and it's been magical every time I was telling you I've interviewed a number of actors who said I want to do the interview at the Public Theater at. What is it about this place that so special for people who don't even know about? There's all these people that come through here right so you know like Meryl Streep is done Shakespeare in the park Leeann have like you said I seen him do Hamlet You see all these actors whose careers you want to emulate and they could be off doing all these fancy movies and TV shows etc but they take time to make sure that that muscle of being able to tread the boards never atrophies because they care about the art of illuminating the human condition and that sort of what was embedded in my fiber at Grad school at Nyu. And so. It's something that I keep coming back to over and over again. I mean you look at the faces on that wall. It's every major actor you've ever heard of. It's kind of stupid. They've all been here all of them and you too So we'll talk more about that but I said we were walking in here. It's the highest compliment. I could pay an actor as I didn't know where to begin with you. You have so much going on right now. But let's start with the film waves. Yeah which is unique and different than anything. I've seen it tells a beautiful story and it really uses music. Well how do you describe this project when you first read it? Did you get what they were going for? That's that's a good question it's hard. It's complicated it is complicated. Because it's a hard movie to describe the people. It's a family drama that focuses more on the children of this family. It's an African American family. Mother Father Son and a daughter and the first half of the movie. Sorta is the sun's half the movie and the second half of the movie you kind of shift narratives and it becomes the daughter's journey. There's a major tragedy that happens in the midpoint. I'm not gonNA give away But it also is sort of shows how a family deals with grief loss and how you keep moving forward with with grace and with love In the music is huge. Even like I said in the script their music cues laid into the script. So you press a button. Listen to a song as you read the scene Our director writer Trey Atwood Schultz. Had something very specific in mind in the movies autobiographical? I should say and then leaps into narrative fiction and then back autobiography and then to narrative fiction. Because I say that because he is white right and the movie focuses on an African American family but because he hired Calvin Harrison junior to play the role of the son in the family because they worked on a film before it comes at night they sort of collaborate and said like. Tell me something about your childhood about your father about what it was like for you to grow up in New Orleans etc and so they combined their narratives and came up with the story together and it was a real collaboration from the onset And I think we came up with something special. It is unique. It's unlike anything I've seen before you're a good position in your career where you can get a script and sort of decide whether or not it's something that's worth all the time that you put into a role. What was it about this story that jumped off the page to you okay? So I was shooting. This is us at the time and my agent. My manager read the script and he said we think this is pretty special. I was like guys like I got a job on the show. And they're like yeah but check it out. If you like it maybe we can make it work. First and foremost it was something completely different than Randall. Pearson whom I love and Adore. But now that you have the opportunity to not be locked into one character and to be known solely for that character. I try to take advantage of those opportunities whenever they are offered to me now to keep going with that point about ten years ago there wasn't the same sort of fluidity between film and Television. Right and now that it exists. It's like I'm kidding. Candy store on jump around and play and as many sandboxes as I can This guy was is a father in in waves who is very much present For his family but is a hard man not the easiest father to get along with. And so what? I enjoy the challenge of inhabiting people who aren't readily likable. But who are humane. Who are good and my goal is not to be liked but to be understood so I enjoy the challenge of finding someone who people be like. I don't know if I like this dude. But trying to find his heart and I think the character has a really beautiful journey without giving too much away. I think he recognizes by the end of the film. That the way that he is in the beginning didn't elicit the results that he was looking for so that there is a strength invulnerability that he has to access in order to continue going with his family because of the heartbreak he suffers. We won't give away to look at himself again and say exacted. I have some role in this. Yes did you bring any of your own parenting? You've got two boys due to this role I imagine it's hard in some ways to separate the way you act as a dad and the way you raise your children from a character do bring some of yourself to it. I think I bring myself to every character. I play Different parts of yourself. Come out with different characters. Randall is adorable elites sweet and I think I have a sweetness to me And then there's an edge to me as well Please ask my wife when you get a chance to be like. Oh Yeah he's got their times which my son plays flag football and soccer right now right and I'll catch myself just barking on the side that dad. I can be Willie at times that dad but I do it with the hopes of trying to instruct right and there are times when she takes instruction their times he'll stop in the middle of the game and he'd be like can you please be quiet and I'll be like my bad my bad bring it down but like we have a dialogue. I think that's the good thing about it. I came here when I go too far right. And he's like I need you to press pause. I got you backing up right now. There's another layer to that too. Which is the other parents looking at sterling k? Brown barking every once in a while but most of the other parents barking right. Okay with me all right. Yeah Yeah so you're not alone not alone. You talked about this being filmed about loss. Clearly it is grieving You had that in your own family. Obviously when you were a young boy at ten years old on the other side of it. How much of that did you bring to this part I? The whole dynamic of fathers and sons is one that resonates with me and is resonating really strong right now. My Dad was forty five when he passed away and I was ten and I'm forty three now and I think I knew that that was young when I was a child but now that I'm two years away from that age I'd I know beyond a shadow of doubt that it's painfully young. And so I I have this desire to sort of carry the old man around with me and infuse him into a lot of the things that I do. Especially right now. Because he's just very very in the forefront of my consciousness and I saw this relationship between a father and the son on the page and it it's not a perfect relationship and I think there's parts of it that allow me when you step into somebody who is imperfect you may have been judging them their imperfection as if you are perfect and they should be perfect like you but step inside them in you recognize. None of us are perfect and truly believed that all of us do the best that we know how to until we know how to do better. And so there's a part of me that was actually able to forgive aspects of my dad aspects of other men in my family who were paternal figures because I recognize that the love didn't always feel loving but it was love on the less. I know exactly what you mean about the age because when you were ten years old and your dad was so young forty five. He's still felt like a grown man. Okay maybe that's when people died but when you reach the age you and I are about the same age you go wait a minute. No that wasn't fair not at all. Yeah not all the way to sue way too soon way too sad and I remember. I was the first time I ever saw my mom cry. Because she wasn't a crier I remember like really specific. Things Waking up that morning going into the kitchen and my mom being on the phone calling the paramedics and ask them meet a put clothes on my dad because he was naked in the bed and his body was stiff stiff as a board and I tried to pull unaware up on him. It was uncomfortable for me. I was uncomfortable for him. He says go get your mom. Go Utah I go back to the kitchen. Mommy wants you and she got mad at me for not doing what she wanted but she gets him dressed the paramedics come in and they carry them out and we have a split level house after. Go down the steps to get to the front door. And as they're carrying them out on a stretcher he looks at me over the railing any wings wings came out the door. Last time I saw last time I saw will say this about Sterling Brown Junior. He filled me up with so much. Love Willie I was his only son. My mom has to other biological children from her first marriage and I have an adopted brother and sister who when I got twenty five. She's like well. I guess I should start all over again and got a six month old and then my little sister is about a year and a half younger than my little brother. But so I was my dad's kid. Yeah right by our his boy and we were tight like I like football because my dad likes football. I Like Boxing. Because my dad likes boxing. I Love Movies and Television because my dad loves movies and television and we would watch movies for hours. It was the beginning of. Don't tell mommy watching this. You know what I'm saying. He would watch things that we're completely and totally inappropriate. But I would watch. Now I would see the joy that he would derive from it and the joy that our derived from it. And maybe on a subconscious level would be like man. How cool would it be to bring that kind of joy to lots of people because it was transported for both of us and so while the time was short? It was everything that I could have hoped for for ten years. Either ten-year-old son right now and so the idea of being separated from him leaving him. That quickly with a wink is unthinkable to me. Do you ever think it's unfair. You talk with such love and joy and you find a blessing in it. Sure that it led you to the career you found in succeeded in. Was there a time though where it made you angry? Oh yeah there's a time I think so from ten to sixteen. I DID NOT GRIEVE. My father's death right. I didn't think that I could cry. I thought that had to be the man of the House. Like mom is crying. I gotTa keep it together is also growing up Christian believing that he was in a better place. Maybe they'd like he'd been sort of unhappy. He lost his job. As a grocery store clerk kroger stores and have been laid off for a few months and I could see learn valuable life lesson what I do and who I am are two separate and distinct distinct things and I have to know who I am first and foremost because of I'm ever taken away. My my job is ever taken away from me. I still need to know my own personal value right and I saw his value just decline and his in his own eyes and his sense of self worth right but so that's six years ago. He's in a better place and you know he doesn't have to be in pain anymore. And then I turned fifteen sixteen. I just blew. Who'd I can't even really explain? It like grief works in funny ways but I just balled and I missed him and I I was acting and I was playing varsity football. And he's like two of his favorite things and he wasn't getting the chance to experience his boy do these things that he loved so much. I felt the loss riding. And that's when because I went by shelby right until I was sixteen and I was just like no. It's time to be sterling. It's it's time to hear that name again because when people call me by that name I get a chance to carry a piece of him with me so there was a period. But I'm a true believer that all things work for good and everything happens for a reason. There's a lesson in at all if you look for it right. Circumstances don't define us but our reaction to those circumstances is what matters and so I'm I just take the black and Brown. I said I had ten good years and I WANNA make sure that my kids have more. You know what I mean. I WANNA make sure. My kids are eight and four. So he's just two years away so I feel like the template for fatherhood I kind of got it for the next two years and then after that I'm in a whole new territory right. We never had sex talks or anything like that so those things are going to be coming down on all right. I'll just be making it up as I go listen. I saw the pictures of men's health. I don't think you're going anywhere anytime soon. You I love the moment when you won your emmy to and you've got to stand on the stage and say some of the things you just said to me to the World About Your Dad. What did that feel like knowing that he in some way inspired you to get to that place where you ended up like? That's a it's a magical view that not too many people get to take a stand on stage and it reminded me of this year. Darrell Jerome One. Best lead actor in limited series. Had everybody stood up and applauded for because his performance outstanding and I don't know if I was outstanding or not but people stood up and it was this overwhelming moment of like. Wow you guys see me as like belonging as being worthy To be embraced by your peers in that way was really sort of overwhelming moment but to get a chance to share him and mom with the world. Yeah Yeah it's cool and and then also too. I know he sought right like I know he was there and he was very very happy. There's no question. Yeah as he sat and watched those movies with you that he didn't much tell your mom you were watching you said. Imagine you'd be one of those people I remember. We want terminator. I was like turn. Isn't that part of fatherhood than my dad? When I was nine took me see Beverly Hills cop? I remember sitting there going. You should be watching. This is just A. That's it don't repeat any of these words this. I also don't think people realize because you came into most people's lives about three years ago four years ago if you go back to Oj. How long you've been working to get to this. Point had thirteen years to get to the place where you were standing on that stage and you were grinding. You're out you're famous. Shows shook but he didn't have the lead in the show notes. Was there ever a point those thirteen years? Where you said yourself. I don't know if I'm going to end up where I thought I was going to end up all right. So is his an anecdote. I did my first series regular was on. Fx Show called starved right and it started the same year as it's always sunny in Philadelphia. They both have seasons like seven episodes of peace as about Belichick A group of People with eating disorders and New York City and I played it. Belichick New York City Cop who had pullover bicycle delivery people on trumped up traffic charges. Still their food is compensation and then binge and purge right one time. I threw up that I was by myself on a pile of garbage and there was a homeless man sleeping in the garbage and I told him to get a real house. Don't know why it didn't last anyways. Is that a comedy was. It was definitely and so my mom. My mom watched the pilot and I said this is a good Christian soldier. Now you gotta understand. I said I appreciate you watching the pilot. If you don't WanNa Watch anymore I understand and my mother touched my name and she said thank you. I have out as quickly as she could right. So the show goes it's seven episodes. We don't get renewed but always sunny in Philadelphia my man Charlie Day and all those guys go on for like fifteen sixteen season. Yeah crazy we finish the show and my mom goes D. Do you WanNa come home now. I said my I was just a series where I go on a TV show. And she's like. Yeah but that's showing Ed. So she wanted me to turn it in because she didn't think it was gonNA work out. She had expectations as parents often. Do sure right I graduated from. Nyu Gone to Stanford University for Undergrad. And my Grad School I say God. We spent a lot of money on this degree right. I know there's no guarantees on things working out in any particular way. Can I please pay my bill by bills by doing what it is that I love? If I can do that I call it a wash good. I have paid my bills doing nothing other than act since I graduated from school right and everybody has a very different path. There's temp jobs and different kinds of day jobs bartending catering etc etc. I've been blessed to be able to tell stories to pay my bill so that first thirteen years in change laboring in obscurity was fantastic. I paid off my student loans right. I bought a house I had a son I was married like things were good. And then this last four years things have been do bigger so it's not like. I ever anticipate at this moment to happen right but thirteen years with what I thought it was going to be. And that was success right to be able to work at what you love that success. This is just gravy like delicious gravy. I had a great biscuit now into sobbing. Sobbing at is just a stupid good. You were happy with good. You didn't even need stupid good though. I was my first job out of school so I moved up to Harlem and now a New York for nine eleven living in Harlem and a four story walkup and the water pressure got worse. The higher up you went in the building and so I took a shower. Which was a shared shower for the a. Lotta shower in my apartment right. There's three apartments on the hall. That all shared a shower. A sketch right and the water pressure was so bad. I had to move my body around this to get my whole body. Wet Right this furnished room which had one window and I had my little green fan. Everybody knows the little. Oh Yeah I would lay down on top of the bed and my birthday suit does not pornographic I would lay in my birthday suit because it was so hot the summer of one I would get up. There would be a perfect sweat. Imprint of my body on top of the sheep like I would ride the bus up and down one hundred twenty fifth just for a right this real right but the room cost eighty five dollars a week and my first job was at the classical stage company. For Kafka's short story turned operatic called in the penal colony right. It was directed by Joanna Colitis with original music by Philip. Glass and I didn't speak in this role. It was a movement thing right. Just did choreography taking care of this prisoner right. I made three hundred dollars a week for this GIG. I cleared to fifteen. And you couldn't tell me I was doing the Duke Man. I was in New York City as a working actor and I could not have been happier and it's interesting because I think about that time and I've been experienced so much more success and life is incredibly fulfilling right now but Mike pure joy points. I don't know if I've ever been happy. It's interesting too. Don't you think there's something about earning over those thirteen years where you ended up? I was thinking as you were talking. I interviewed Orlando Bloom about a month or so like this. He graduated from college and the next day was on the set of Lord of the Rings and he didn't have that between and he talked about having to sort of go back and do theater and learn how to become a good actor. You had all that training and it was almost like this last four years. Have been reward for all that work and that apartment you lived in uptown it. It feels good like and it also feels very much appreciated. Yes you know because you know that those moments don't come around like this last four years to be able to go from. Oj To this is us like. It doesn't happen like that for a lot of people and it doesn't happen with great frequency. I'm incredibly appreciative. Of this moment I know so many talented people that don't receive this moment so no. It's not a pure meritocracy. You know what I'm saying like preparation meets opportunity. That is luck right but you have to be prepared for it and you have to be presented the opportunity and I got that and then things changed. So what was the moment for you when things change was it the acclaim you've got for the People vs. Oj Simpson. Was that the first big pop or was it before that or was it. This is us. When did you start to feel like okay? Things are changing for me here I would say onset of. Oj Okay We would have the editor would come up to Sarah Paulson and myself and be like you guys are cutting together really nice. Got Some serious chemistry. Thanks Buddy Pretty Shannon graduate enjoying it and then the producers would be like Brown. Just keep doing what you're doing you becoming the height of the series house guys. Chris dying like nobody likes but he's like no no no for real just trust us and I was like okay. I'll keep doing it and I remember going home one day and my wife was giving me a hard time because she wanted to go work out and I was trying to work on my lines and can be come. Sort of Obsessive I go into the garage and disliked. Lock myself for hours. I just work and work hitting tie feel like get into a place where I WANNA present it to people. And she's like I need you to come watch these kids. You still father. I know I am but I'm trying to accomplish all right. 'cause I don't lose my temper that often and so she saw that like I was really trying to focus. I I knew something special was in the ether. You know what I mean and when we finished shooting as like I know I've watched some wonderful performances. I I've sat across from Courtney. I've sat across from Sarah as I know that these are wonderful performances if I happen to be in there and their range maybe something could come from this right so as we started to get towards the end and I remember Brad Simpson one of our producers. Came Up to me is. Don't take another job until after the first six episodes. Come right like really. He's like trust me. I'd already booked US already. Got A job but but that was. That was a special moment because not only. Do you feel the confidence of people. Sort of knowing your work before you. Sorta re- proving yourself with each job. Like each job's not leading to like the next great job is just like job job job and it's not like a steps that I go up right after. Oj It it was like steps and it was like people saying what do you want do. How can we be in partnership with you and you're like me after? Like just waiting for people like please them have small like all of a sudden they like. We want to work with you and you decide. It's crazy and that's a crazy thing because you spent thirteen years having to prove yourself in every room you walked into. Yeah and now. There's just happy that she showed up in the room with them and they're trying to get you to do their show. Yeah and is it true that on the set of Oj? You were working through. This is US already like getting that audition ready because you knew that could be something special to yeah I was I was I told Paulson I said I think I found the next job. As he's like you want this. I was like yeah. She's like okay right so we'd be sitting at the prosecution table and I'd be reading the script and looking at Randall's monologue and the pilot when he goes and he costs his father and I was like Ooh this writing is really good and you don't come across a lot of network television shows where the riding pops off the page and grabs you but fogelman has a way of grabbing you with his words and so I went into auditions took for meeting with him and I got to gust because I love crazy stupid. Love my wife and I is one of my favorite romantic comedies. And so I- gushed and he's like yeah. Tell us when you're ready for a year. You know. Come in when you're ready. I was like okay psyched prepared and I came in and it went really really well and this is like the room was rooting for you. You know the room doesn't always root for you in my history my experience. But now there's new thing this intangible thing called Buzz you always look at people like how did they get that buzz like where does it come from? And then all of a sudden you have buzz. And it's it's cool. It feels good. You can feel it when you walk into a room and you can feel the energy shift in such a way that I can't wait to see what sterling's going to do Rather than Obama. Who Right you know what I'm saying like it makes a huge difference and so you get the part obviously famously. What do you think it is about? This is us that has so connected with people now in its fourth season the hope of the goodness. That's the word you've used a private family. All those things come together. Why do you think is connected the way it has? It has because we're disconnected. I think we as a society of various sort of bifurcated divisive like. It's very hard to have a conversation with people that doesn't frequently lead to an argument Talking about politics or talking about just the state of the world you know and this show is something that I think whether you're in a blue state red-state whatever your religious affiliation like people know recognize and appreciate the importance of family and the show is about family. So it's like we get a chance to put our side our differences for an hour every Tuesday for about eighteen weeks out of the year. And it's not about US versus them. It's this is us right. And I feel like people sort of defend themselves consciously unconsciously about like being attacked or being sort of putting the box and a certain kind of way now folks just feel sort of like collectively they get to enjoy the experience of this Pearson family and we go through so much. We go through adoption. We go through anxiety where you go through dealing with obesity. We deal with so many different topics that people see themselves and one or all of us in varying degrees. I think there's a certain kind of reassurance and knowing that you're not doing it alone right like hey. Randall understands what I'm going through there. Maybe not so bad. You Know Kate and Kevin Get. It is not so bad It takes away the isolation and you brings us together. I was shown a beautiful brings people together. There's no question about it but there are a lot of shows that attempt to do that. Sure right yeah. There's just something different about and I think you're right. There's somebody on the show that everybody can relate to that. He's like me she's like me. I've been through that thing and there's also at the heart of it loss. Yeah they're again. They're shows up again. Was that something you were able to tap into this show as well absolutely. Yeah I mean yeah absolutely you know. Rando has two dads that he's lost. Yeah and with William in particular of my biological father a soon as I saw a new story arc was going to be. It's sort of presented me with an opportunity that I didn't have when I was ten and I was an opportunity to say goodbye to be present at the crossing over of of my father founded Strangely Cathartic Right Ron Safest Jones who is a brilliant brilliant actor from New York City who has worked at this theater as well and a beautiful soul. It was a joy to play with him and sort of the parallels between Randall in Sterling. I was able to access in a real direct way. I with regards to saying goodbye to William as kind of like Megan the chance to say. Goodbye Sterling Brown Junior And some things just meant to be. I was meant to be random you know. I'm sure other people would have done a wonderful job with it right. That's what I'm saying like I'm the it was just meant for me. It's impossible to imagine anyone else there. Now obviously yeah. Yeah so I. It's it's cool to catch you in this moment where things are going so well for you. I'm curious how you're handling on the celebrity front your wife how she handling it when you're on the cover of magazines and everybody knows you walking down the street and I imagine we talked about your acting foundation the foundation of your relationship that she's known you long before you were the game Brown Odell celebrity. So how are you handling that as a couple and a family one day at a time art? It's interesting Celebrity is interesting. Even using the word is difficult. Yes right and it's like I like. Yeah I guess so right. I think of myself as an actor and and because of what I've been able to accomplish as an actor. I I've gained celebrity Nothing kills peripheral vision quicker than celebrity and what I mean by. That is new. York City is one of the great places in this world to people. Watch right so many different people at Necessities Race Creed. Color Etcetera Etcetera. And you just watch fascinating people all the time until everybody's watching you and then you get bloop. Right I'VE PUT ON HOODS. I've put on hats and it's not because I feel ungracious. Or or anything like that but you still a regular human being trying to accomplish things through your day right and no one knows that like no one sees you as a regular human being anymore. They're just like oh right not so much in New York in La but it still happens. Yeah right in Middle America and Saint Louis where I'm from Alabama. It's hard to go to the mall like it's hard to go to the mall and so there is a fight for normalcy for me in particular for my children right so I had to establish a couple of things no longer take pictures when I'm with my family One day I was at church and some people were really big fans of the show. They started queuing up. Can we take picture? Yeah yeah sure no problem. No problem as Andrew. My oldest. I said. Would you hold Daddy's jacket? Andrew took my jacket through it on the ground stomped on it and I was a boy. Did I do something like what's going on? He goes well. You just stop doing what you're doing with me so you can take pictures with these people so. I guess they're more important strangers. Yeah and I was like Lord have mercy. This kid hits you like people underestimate the intelligence of children on an emotional intelligence level. Oh yeah because they know what's going on. I said I will never do it again. He's like whatever say the picture I was like. No I won't do it again so the next time that we were together we were getting off a plane and these really nice people were like. Yeah we didn't bother you on the plane for a really big fans of the show. I took a picture. I sat cy. I'm with my family and when I'm with my family I don't take pictures. Could you take a handshake hugging stat? And they were really cool and my son looked at me and he said he remembered. I said I got your back. Brown like you deserve all the things that I had as a child that you take for granted being able to go to a park and kick it with your dad right. Every kid is entitled to that with out their dad being the center of Focus. Right right and so you find the balance you like. Hey Nice to meet you. Thank you for the love. I appreciate you WANNA give back to my kids right. It's interesting. My wife is much more gracious. Because she's a Thespian as well and so she's she's she lives and she looks people like Benadryl. Even though I think you this nice dude you all this. And all that America's daddy they don't even know and I'm like I know I tried to tell them but they will believe public unwanted. Here's who he really is already has but it is. I don't know what I thought it was going to feel like. I'm the dude who likes to go to the VON's and the tea and to trader Joe's or whole foods or whatever and do my shopping and I still do I fight for it right and what it means. Is I knowledge you I see and I say thank you and I just try to keep it voted. That's right you know what I'm saying. Sometimes I'll put on headphones. Just the black things out a little bit have had people like tap on my headphone. Who how out of it? No touching right people will grab Scher especially because you come into their homes and they feel like they know you right and it's like I get it I'm not I'm never ungracious. Because I do know what. It's like to meet someone that you're fan of and they blow you off and it's the worst feeling and I'm not GonNa put that on anybody so it's my responsibility to be as cordial as I can't in the moment right and also to get back to my family. I think that's a good way to handle it. Yeah find that balance one of the great things about being the position you're in now is your production company. Yes that you get to take stories and lift up people who may not otherwise have a platform or voice. Why is that been so important to you? Very few people are afforded the opportunity to start a production company. You know it's not like I'm GonNa Start Right like there's there's opportunities that are presented to you and you feel obliged to take advantage of them because you know how much help was needed in order for you to get to where you are right and if I can make it easier for someone else coming up behind me to get their story out there we complain about. Diversity is an actor have been like how come there's not more roles for black men Black Women Etcetera Etcetera now? The way in which you saw that and fix that is you have to have as many storytellers behind the camera. Putting those stories out there right so it's not about just what's happening in front of the cameras. What's happening behind the cameras? Well and if I really have a problem with diversity in Hollywood and I have an opportunity to be a part of the solution. Then it's my obligation to take advantage of that opportunity right so my production company Indian meadows is named after my neighborhood in Saint Louis Missouri. Were Working Class African American neighborhood where I came from and that carry with me everywhere that I go and an order to for me be successful like I can never experience that disconnect. I feel like some people win. They've become celebrities sort of be like all right now. It's time for me to be a new person right as the person I am as the person who got me here like my sort of accessibility. I like people like I really like people and just because people sometimes can kinda bombard me. I was like I get it there. There've been sweeter whatnot but I still like you. I still love you so I gotta hold onto that. So naming the company would I named. It just reminds me like this is who you are. This is where you came from. Don't forget don't forget in terms of the stories that I wanNa Tau of marginalized people that are sort of relegated to the sidelines. Sometimes but it's changing right and we sing more people of Color Front and center More Minorities Front and center. I just want to be a part of intelligent diversity in storytelling right. I'm looking for that black sleep back saying like I like the things that excite me that seem to be relegated to just mainstream like how do we make sure that we put a little bit of color into that as well? So that's what I'm and what a legacy to leave right. If this goes on for a long time and expect it will to watch somebody grow up on the opportunity you gave them and be sitting in a chair like this some day. Oh Dude there's somebody like comes. I was like yeah I remember. I did this Indian meadows action and that was my first chance to do something that would mean the world. That'd be bigger than any acting GIG that I had. An acting is what? I love but to be able to provide opportunity for other people. That's that's something that's special. I think about Andrei brower. Who won the Emmy before me The actors that have come before the Denzel is the Paul Robeson Ozzy Davis's it's CETERA. Like these guys are giants that endured Paul Robeson did a fellow on Broadway and could not go to A. Cast dinner with his cast because the segregation right like these dudes endured all of this so brown can get up and make people cry. Good Damn good job of it you dave firsthand. My Wife Ryan constantly that will you lead me into the next thing I was gonna ask you about. Which is the fact that you were historic actor. I mean you mentioned Andrea Been Nineteen years. It's an African. American actor had won that award and then Golden Globe the EMMYS. You are a historic actor when you stood on that stage. You weren't just the latest guy to win. Best actor in a drama. You were the first to do something. D Stop and think about that as part of your legacy or is that just too much right now too much. Yeah it's way too much. And it's way too surreal. Yeah because like I was supposed to happen a long time ago. Right Jackie. Robinson did this a long time ago. like it's twenty nineteen twenty eighteen or seventeen. When it happened. I was like I I stuff is still happening. Like I never thought I'm not the do who's on at the avant-garde or like at the forefront of like movements per se. I'm a guy who deeply loves everything that he does. And so when I was told for the Globes in seventy five years at that time I was the first African American male to win. Best lead actor in a dramatic series for SAC which is only twenty five years or something like that but the first house a Oh. Gosh like this isn't happening. Is this me it dawns on me from time to time like I have a place in my office which is in the back of my house and the awards on a couple of different book shelves and from time to Time I look at them I I. I won this stuff right. It's really cool. La At participating winning of this stuff and to be the first of anybody to do something. I feel ill equipped to be the first. I feel like I should be much more articulate Much more sort of militant. I don't know like I feel like the first of the people they like prepared to be the first like you know you have those conversations with branch rickey and you're like this is what it's going to be. Nobody talked to me. They go in the trophies. It's me while I promise. I won't keep your all day but I can't let you go without asking about a couple huge projects. Coming up frozen. Yeah I mean come on being a part of one of the biggest movie franchises yes I have children. Yes believe me a play on a loop in my head all these years later. How cool is that to join that? It's amazing I took my oldest to see the first frozen and he's a boy with very boy like energy. So when I play the soundtrack for him he just like I want to hear the first song over and over again and the first song is like should they the guys who like chopping ice so bored of cold and winter rare and mountain ring him? I mean it's always had another talented. Yeah but I wanNA hear you wanNA build a snowman. He's like this way the first so to be now of an age where he can go and like appreciate the daddies in it and my old my youngest is four and he's GonNa love it like he's just got a sensitive soul that sort of built for these things like the first movie that he got a chance to see all the way through his cocoa. He made into cocoa and he loved it. Yeah and I've seen BITs and pieces of frozen Functions just as much as like an action adventure or more like an action adventure than anything else. So it's got something for the ladies. Because we have our heroines that are at the forefront of the story but like the boys who have boy energy. They're going to be riding this ride just as hard as anybody else so I don't get they. Don't get a chance to see a lot but daddy does. So it's nice when they can see something that he does and vied with perfect. Yeah for that age. They're right in it right and then the other project ask about is the marvelous. Mrs Mazel. Yeah which if the story is true in the speaks to where you are in your career you were like. I want to be in that show. Yeah and they're like yeah. You can be in that. Show that the way it happened Kinda really. I shouted out Rachel's I go. There's ever a way that could be on your show drop in like wreak some havoc house fund. Let me know. And she's like we would love to have you and then the Palladino reached out to me and they're like we've written this role. We don't really see anybody else doing it other than you. Please come play with us right as you kidding me like. I just put it out there and it's happening Omega. It's amazing the You living in that Harlem apartment uptown. Just say call somebody and say I want to be on. That show would freak out if you knew that story. Even though I have no idea who's GonNa having just be happy for you three hundred a week.

We're like a sense of purpose when I'm New York City and I love that hustle right in La. Is this kind of like you sitting in your car.

Sterling K. Brown

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcast. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along with us my guest this week. It's not a good one. I think Actors Sterling K.. Brown know him of course as one of the stars of the hit. NBC Show. The people have to watch with a full box of tissues. This is us the tear jerker now in its fourth season. An amazing cast of which Sterling K.. Brown is an Emmy and Golden Globe. Winning the member joining me now is always the producer of this fine podcast and the producer of these sterling K.. Brown interview for this week Maggie Law. Hey Maggie before we get to the important business of this interview. Some more important important is we spoke last. Maggie law is engaged. Take a nice walk yes. My eyes are blind reflection in this fluorescent lights lights. Thank you so much thank you. Thank you like me yet your fiance for one hundred years one hundred Actually ten mm-hmm we met at a boarding school and we've been dating since the end of junior year of high school. Yeah so so we share that. Yes Dina beginning junior in high school school right. We did it for a long time. Broke up a little while a little break and then we found each other again. But we'll say we did not have a little break ten years strong and here we are. I'm telling you deep deep roots are good for the marriage. Adulation Cam very excited. And let's talk about our interview Sterling K.. Brown is a guide met a couple of times. Didn't know well L. had really high hopes for the interviews faced on what I know of them is being sort of Like a smart interesting guy but also the serve electric speaker and presence presents exceeded everything. He was electric. I think it's a way to say it. He really I feel like he brought it to the interview. And just the nicest guy you just love when you meet them and they're just so nice and they say hi to everybody in the room just like there too. I feel like he really brought it one of those people. You hope they'll be who you think it was He I think part of that is is that he's earned his place. We talk a lot about this in an interview. He was sort of on this thirteen year grind small roles. TV He says. Look I was happy. Acting was paying the bills. I bought a house right but hadn't hadn't had that sort of big break in Hollywood and then in the fall of two thousand sixteen along comes people that was he'll he won the emmy for that right people versus Oj Simpson. We played Johnny Cochran. That was earlier in two thousand sixteen and then shortly after this is US comes up and that's it really was the crazy thing for I says now things are stupid. Good for always good now. They're stupid again a little background for people. I know you like to paint a picture picture in your mind as you listen to these interviews of where we are where a place called the public theater New York City of famous famous place that so many of the actors adventures every famous actor you know has played a part there started there in New York City And we're upstairs in the library there. Yeah Sterling actually. That's what he asked to do. The interview it's one of his favorite spots. He went to Grad school at Nyu so right nearby and he said when he was in school there everybody dreamed of performing at the public at some point. You always I wanted to do Shakespeare in the park and everything like that. Eventually he got to do a show there. I think twenty fourteen and so he requested to it there that was great spot. And then you'll hear later we get up walk around a little bit in Washington Square Park and very cool moments of a place. He used to walk around dreaming of being somebody right in that business and you draws the crowd we walk in the park and boom like flies to honey came on to Sterling K.. Brown all those. This is US fans. His new film is called waves. It's a lot about fatherhood. He's Kinda Domineering Dad. In this movie he lost his own father in real life at the age of ten To me it was the best moment of the interview. You can listen. NC agree when he started just going into the story of the day. And I will say I in an interview setting. It's hard to sometimes because the lights and there's people around to get lost in the emotion it was as emotional as I remember reviewing really really feeling at that moment he was so first of all. I'm just grateful that anyone would share such a personal story. Absolutely has that with me Of the day his father died and he was ten years old. I have a ten year old son I think part of that hit me ask what would it be like if I left my ten year. Old Son unexpectedly early in in such a sudden way and he remembers every detail the day in he volunteered it. You know it's not something I would ask him to describe because it is so traumatic. which man did he go there? Yeah he did. It was really emotional but it felt special that he was able to share with you and significant. Because it's how he tapped into characters in waves but also in this awesome us a cathartic moment for him able to sort of say goodbye to his dad in a way. So seems were there okay. We've described the enough let Sterling K.. Brown tell the story himself Sterling K.. Brown right now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast sterling. Thanks for doing this. Thanks for having me great to see a you know we got a Lotta history to talk about you in this neighborhood you in. This theater is my stomping grounds dude. I went to Nyu from ninety eight. Two Oh one I lived if that one asked a place right around the corner and so the public was this fixture like this beacon of when we get out of school. Maybe we'll get a chance to work at the public. Maybe we'll get a chance to do Shakespeare in the park and I've got a chance to work here on a couple of occasions and it's been magical every time I was telling you I've interviewed a number of actors who said I want to do the interview at the Public Theater. What is it about this place that so special for people who don't even know about? There's all these people that come through here right so you know like Meryl Streep Streep is done Shakespeare in the park Leeann have like you said I seen him do hamlet. You see all these actors crews careers you want to immolate and they could be off doing all these fancy movies and TV shows etc.. But they take time to make sure that that muscle of being able to tread the boards never atrophies because they care about the art of illuminating the human condition and that sort of what was embedded in my fiber at Grad School. Oh that NYU and so. It's something that I keep coming back to over and over again. I mean you look at the faces on that wall. It's every major actor you've ever heard of it's all all been here all of them and you too So we'll talk more about that but I said D we're walking in here. It's the highest compliment. I could pay an actor is I didn't know where to begin again with you. You have so much going on right now apprec- but let's start with the film waves. Yeah which is unique and different than anything. I've seen it tells a beautiful story and it really uses music. Well how do you describe this project when you first read it. Did you get what they were going for. That's that's a good question it's hard. It's complicated it. It is complicated because it's a hard movie to describe to people. It's a family drama that focuses more on the children of this family. It's an African American family mother and in a father a son and a daughter in the first half of the movie. SORTA is the sons half of the movie and the second half of the movie you kind of shift narratives and it becomes the daughters journey. There's a major tragedy that happens in the mid point. I'm not gonNA give away But it also is sort of shows is how a family deals with grief loss and how you keep moving forward with with grace and with love In the music is huge. which like even like I said in the script their music cues laid into the script? So you press a button. Listen to a song as you read the scene Our director writer Trey Atwood Schultz had something very specific in mind in the movies autobiographical. I should say and then leaps into narrative fiction and then back in autobiography and then to narrative fiction. Because I say that because he is white right and the movie focuses on an African American family but because he hired Kelvin Harrison junior to play the role of the son in the family because they worked on a film before it comes at night. They sort of collaborated and said like tell me something about your childhood third about your father about what it was like for you to grow up in New Orleans etc and so they combined their narratives and came up with the story together and it was a real collaboration collaboration from the onset And I think we came up with something special. It is unique. It's unlike anything I've seen before you're in a position in your career where you can get a script and sort of decide whether or not it's something that's worth all the time you put into a role. What was it about this story that jumped off the page to you? Okay so I was shooting. This is us at the time and my agent. My manager read the script and he said we think this is pretty special. I was like guys like I got a job on the show. And they're like yeah but check it out. If you like it maybe we can make it work. First and foremost it was something completely really different than Randall Pearson whom I love and Adore. But now that you have the opportunity to not be locked into one character and to be known solely the character I try to take advantage of those opportunities whenever they are offered to me now to keep going with that point about ten years ago there wasn't the same sort of fluidity between film and Television Right and now that it exists. It's like I'm a kid in Candy Star on jump around and play and as many sandboxes as This guy was a father in in waves who is very much present For his family but it is a hard man not the easiest father to get along with and so what. I enjoy the challenge of inhabiting people who aren't readily likable But who are humane. Who are good and my goal is not to be liked but to be understood so I enjoy? Enjoy the challenge of finding someone who people be like. I don't know if I like the student but trying to find his heart and I think the character has a really beautiful journey without without giving too much away I think he recognizes by the end of the film. That the way that he is in the beginning didn't elicit the results that he was looking for so that there is a strength invulnerability that he has to access in order to continue going with his family. Yeah because of the heartbreak he suffers. We won't give away to look at himself again and exacted. I have some role in this. Yes did you bring any of your own parenting. You've got two boys due to this role I imagine it's hard in some ways to separate the way you act as a dad and the way you raise your children from character do bring some. I'm of yourself to it. I think I bring all of myself to every character. I play Different parts of yourself. Come out with different characters. I'd Randall is a Dorka believed. Let's meet and I think I have a sweetness to me And then there's an edge to me as well Please ask my wife when you get a chance. Oh Yeah he's got their times which my son plays flag football and soccer right now right and I'll catch myself just barking that dad. I can be Willie at times that dad but I do it with the hopes of trying to instruct destruct right and there are times when he takes instruction there are times in which he'll stop in the middle of the game and he'd be like can you please be quiet and I'll be like yeah my bad my bad bring it down but like we have a dialogue. I think that's the good thing about it. I came here when I go too far right. And he's I need you to press. Paul I got you can up. There's another layer to that too. which is the other parents that Sterling K.? Brown barking uh-huh. Yeah but most of the other parents barking right. Okay with me all right. Yeah so you're not alone you talked about. This is being a film about loss. Clearly it is grieving you had that in your own family. Obviously when you were a young boy at ten years old on the other side of it how much of that did you bring to this part. I think the whole dynamic of fathers and sons is one that resonates with me and is resonating really strong right now now. My Dad was forty five when he passed away and I was tin and I'm forty three now and I think I knew that that was young young when I was a child but now that I'm two years away from that age I'd I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's painfully young doc And so I I have this desire to sort of carry the old man around with me and infuse him into a lot of the things that I do especially right. Now because he's just very very in the forefront of my consciousness and I saw this relationship between the father and the son on the page and it. It's not a perfect relationship. I think there's parts of it that allow me when you step into somebody who is imperfect you may have been judging them their imperfection as if you are perfect and they should be perfect like you but then when you step inside them in you recognize none of us are perfect and truly believed that all of us do the best that we know how to until we know how to do better. And so there's a part of me that was actually able to forgive Aspects of my dad aspects of other men in my family who were paternal figures because I recognize that the love didn't always feel loving loving but it was love on the less. I know exactly what you mean about the age because when you were ten years old and your dad was so young forty five. He's still dope. Felt like a grown man okay. Maybe that's when people die but when you reach the age you and I are about the same age you go wait a minute. No that wasn't fair. Not at all. Yeah no way to sue way too soon way too sad. I remember. I was the first time I ever saw my mom cry uh-huh because she wasn't a crier I remember like really specific things Waking up that morning winning in going into the kitchen and my mom being on the phone calling the paramedics and asking me to put clothes on my dad because he was naked take it in the bed and his body was stiff stiff as a board and I tried to pull underwear up on him. It was uncomfortable uncomfortable for me. It was uncomfortable for him. He says go get your mom Mama. I go back to the kitchen. Mommy wants you and she got mad at me even even on doing what she wanted but she gets him dressed the paramedics come in and they carry him out and we have a split level house. You have to go down the steps to get to the front door and as they're carrying them out on a stretcher he looks at me over the railing any wings wings came out the door last time I saw Last time I will say this about Sterling Brown Junior. He filled me up with so much. Love Willie I was his only son. My mom has to other biological children from her first marriage and I have an adopted brother and sister sister who when I got twenty five. She's like well. I guess I should start all over again and got a six month old and then my little sister is about a year and a half younger than my little brother. But so I was my dad's kit. Yeah right by his boy and we were tight like I like football because my dad likes football. I like boxing because my dad likes boxing. I Love Movies and Television because my dad loves movies and television and we will watch movies for hours. It was the beginning of. Don't tell mommy watching this. You know what I'm saying you'd watch things uh-huh completely and totally inappropriate. But I would watch. Now I would see the joy that he would derive from it and the joy that our derived from it. And maybe on a subconscious level would be like man. How cool would it be to bring that kind of joy to lots of people because it was transported or both of us and so while the time was short? It was everything that I could have hoped for for ten years either the ten year. Old Son Right now and so the idea of being separated from him and leaving him. That quickly with a wink is unthinkable to. Do you ever think it's unfair. You talk with such love and joy and you find a blessing in it. Sure that it led you to. The career you've found in succeeded in was was there a time though where it made you angry. Oh yeah there's a time I think so from ten to sixteen. I did not grieve my father's death right. I didn't think think that I could cry. I thought that I had to be the man of the House. Like mom is crying. I gotTA keep it together. There's also growing up Christian believing that he was in a better place. Maybe they'd like he'd been sort of unhappy. He lost his job. As a grocery store clerk kroger stores and have been laid off for a few months and I could see learned valuable life lesson what I do and who I am are two separate and distinct distinct distinct things and I have to know who I am first and foremost because of I'm ever taken away. My my job is ever taken away from me. I still need to know my own personal value right and I saw his value just decline and his in his own eyes and his sense of so worth right but so that's six years I was like. Oh He's a better place and you know he doesn't have to be in pain anymore. And then Dan I turned fifteen or sixteen. I just BOO hooed. I can't even really explain it. Like Grief Works Works and funny ways but I just balled and I missed him and I I was acting and I was playing varsity football. And he's like two of his favorite things and he wasn't getting the chance to experience his boy do these things that he loved so much. I felt the the loss riding. And that's when I went by shelby right until I was sixteen and I was just like no. It's time to be sterling. It's it's time to hear that name again because when people call me by that name I get a chance to carry a piece of him with me so there was a period. But I'm a true believer that all things work for good and everything happens for a reason. There's a lesson at all. Well if you look for it right circumstances. Don't define us but our reaction to those circumstances is what matters and so I'm mm-hmm I just take the blessing Brown. I said I had ten good years and I WANNA make sure that my kids have more. You know what I mean. I WANNA make sure my kids Are Eight and four. So he's just two years away so I feel like the template for fatherhood I kind of I got it for the next two years and then after that I'm in a whole new territory take right. We never had the sex talks or anything like that so those things are going to be coming down. I'm like all right. I'll just be making it up as I go. Aw Listen I saw the pictures and men's health. I don't think you're going anywhere anytime soon. You I love the moment when you won your emmy to and you've got to stand on the stage and say some of the things you just said to me to the World About Your Dad. What did that feel like knowing that he in some way inspired you to get to that place where you ended up if it was magical like? That's a it's a magical view that not too many people get to take a stand on this stage and it reminded me of this year. Darrell Jerome One. Best lead actor in unlimited series. Had everybody stood up and applauded for because his performance outstanding and I don't know if I was outstanding not but people stood up and it was this overwhelming moment of Mike. Wow you guys see me as like belonging as has being worthy To be embraced by your peers in that way was really sort of overwhelming moment but but to get a chance to share him and my mom with the world. Yeah yeah that's cool and then also too I know he sought right like I know he was there and he was very very happy. There's no question. Yeah as he sat and watched those movies with you that he didn't much tell your mom you were watching you said. Imagine you'd be one of those people I remember. We want terminator take. Isn't that part of fatherhood than my dad. When I was nine took Beverly Hills Cop? I remember sitting there going. You ensure should be watching this. This is just A. That's it don't repeat any of these words this. I also don't think people realize because you came into most people's lives about three years ago four years ago. If you go back to Jay how long you've been working to get to this point had thirteen years to get to the place where you were standing on that stage age you were grinding. You're out you're famous. Shows shook but you didn't have the lead in the show notes. was there ever a point those thirteen years where you said to yourself. I don't know if I'm going to end up where I thought I was going to end up all right. So is his an anecdote. I did my first series regular was on. FX Show called starved right and it started the same year as it's always sunny in Philadelphia. They both have seasons. Like seven episodes of Peace Belichick A group of People with eating disorders and New York City and I played it Belichick New York City Cop who who had pullover bicycle delivery people on trumped up traffic charges still food is compensation and then binge and purge right one time my through up that I was by myself on a pile of garbage and there was a homeless man sleeping in the garbage and I told him to get a real house. Don't know why it didn't last uh-huh anyways comedy was. It was definitely and and so my mom. My mom watched the pilot and this is a good Christian soldier. Now you gotta I understand. I said I appreciate you watching the pilot. If you don't WanNa Watch anymore I understand and my mother touched my knee and she said I have out as quickly as she could right so so the show goes it's seven episodes. We don't get renewed but always sunny in Philadelphia my man Charlie Day and all those guys go on for like fifteen sixteen season. Yeah crazy we finish the show and my mom goes D. Do you WanNa come home now. I said my I was just a series where I go on a TV show. And she's like yeah but that's showing the one and so she wanted me to turn it in because she didn't think it was gonNA work now. She had expectations as parents often. Do sure I graduated from. NYU Gone to Stanford University for Undergrad and my Grad School. I say God. We spent a lot of money on this degree right. I know there's no guarantees on things working out in any particular way. Can I please pay my bill by bills by doing what it is that I love. If I can do that I call it a wash good. I have paid eight my bills doing nothing other than act since I graduated from school right and everybody has a very different path. Every there's temp jobs in different Kinda on the day job bartending catering etc etc.. I've been blessed to be able to tell stories to pay my bill so that first I thirteen years and change laboring in obscurity was fantastic. I pay off my student loans right. I bought a house I had a son I was married like things were good and then this last four years things have been do so. It's not like I ever anticipate at this moment to happen right but thirteen years with what I thought it it was going to be and that was success right to be able to work at what you love that success. This is just gravy like delicious gravy. I had a great biscuit. Now I'm just sobbing sobbing at is just a super good. You were happy with good. You don't even need stupid good. How was my first job out of school so I moved up to Harlem and now in in New York for nine eleven living in Harlem and a four story walkup and the water pressure got worse? The higher up you went in the building and so i. I took a shower. which was a shared shower for the hall? A Lotta shower in my apartment right. There's three apartments on the hall that all shared a shower. The sketch right and the water pressure was so bad. I had to move my body around this to get my whole embody wet right this furnished room which had one window and I have my little green fan. Everybody knows the little. Oh Yeah I would lay down on top. The bed in my birthday suit does not pornographic I would lay in my birthday suit because it was so hot the summer of one I would get up. There'd be a perfect sweat imprint print of my body on top of the sheep like I would ride the bus up and down one hundred twenty fifth just for a seat right this real target right but the room cost eighty five dollars a week and my first job was at the classical stage company. For Kafka's short story returned operatic called in the penal colony. Right it was directed by Joanna Colitis with original music by Philip Glass and I didn't speak in this role. It was a movement thing right. Just did choreography taking care of this prisoner right. I made three hundred dollars a week for this GIG. I cleared to fifteen and you couldn't tell me I was doing the Duke Man. I was in New York City as a working actor and I could could not have been happier and it's interesting because I think about that time and I've been experienced so much more success and life is incredibly fulfilling and right now but my shoe joy points. I don't know if I've ever been happy. It's interesting too. Don't you think there's something about earning being over those thirteen years where you ended up. I was thinking as you were talking. I interviewed Orlando Bloom about a month or so like this. He graduated from college and the next day was on the set of Lord of the Rings and he didn't have that between an he talked about having to sort of go back and do theater and learn how to become a good actor. You the hat all that training and it was almost like this last four years have been reward for all that work and that apartment you lived in uptown. It feels good like and it also also feels very much appreciated. Yes you know because you know that those moments don't come around like this last four years to be able to go from. OJ To this is us like. It doesn't happen like that for a lot of people and it doesn't happen with great frequency. I'm incredibly appreciative. Of this moment I know so many talented people that don't receive this moment so no it's not a pure meritocracy. You know what I'm saying like preparation meets opportunity. That is luck right but you have to be prepared for it and you have to be presented the opportunity and I got at that and then things changed. So what was the moment for you when things change was it the acclaim you've got for the People vs. OJ Simpson was at the first big pop pop or was it before that or was it. This is us. When did you start to feel like okay? Things are changing for me here I would say onset of Oj We would have the editor would come up to Sarah Paulson and myself and be like you guys are cutting together really nice. Got Some serious chemistry. Thanks Buddy Pretty Shannon Janet graduate enjoying it and then the producers would be like Brown. Just keep doing what you're doing you becoming the height of the series. Sounds like guys this Chris starting like. Nobody likes Chris but he's like no no no for real. Just trust us and I was like okay. Okay I'll keep doing it and I remember going home one day and my wife was giving me a hard hard time because she wanted to go work out and I was trying to work on my lines and can be come sort of Obsessive I go into the garage is and just like locked myself for hours. Just work it and work hitting tie feel like I get it to a place where I want to present it to people. And she's like I need you to come watch. Watch these kids you still father. I know I am but I'm trying to accomplish all right. 'cause I don't don't knows my temper that often and so. She saw that like I was really trying to focus. I I knew something special was in the ether. You know what I mean and when we finished shooting as like I know I've watched some wonderful performances. I I've sat across from Courtney. I've sat across from Sarah and I was like I know that these are wonderful performances if I happen to be in there and their range maybe something could come from this right so as we start to get towards the end and I remember Brad Simpson one of our producers came up to me is don't take another job until after the first six episodes come right like really. He's like trust me. I'd already booked US already. Got A and It is like our but but that was that was a special moment because not only. Do you feel the the confidence of people sort of knowing your work before you SORTA reprove yourself with each job. Like each job's not leading to like like the next great job is just like job job job and it's not like a steps that I go up right after. OJ It it was like steps and it was like people saying what do you WanNa do. How can we be in partnership with you and you like after like just waiting for people I please him? I have small like all of a sudden. They like. We want to work with you. Yeah and you decide. It's crazy and that's a crazy thing because he spent thirteen thirteen years having to prove yourself in every room you walked into. Yeah and now. There's just happy that you showed up in the room with them and they're trying to get you to do their show. Yeah and is it true that on the set ed of Oj. You were working through. This is US already like in getting that audition ready because you knew that could be something special to yeah I was I was I told Paulson I I said I think I found my next job. As he's like you want this I was like yeah. She's like okay right so we'd be sitting at the prosecution table and I'd be reading the script and looking at Rambo's Komo monologue and the pilot when he goes and he costs his father and I was like Ooh this writing is really good and you don't come across a lot of network. Television shows the riding POPs off the page and grabs you but fogelman has a way of grabbing you with his words and so I went in to audition auditions took for meeting with them and I got to gust because I love crazy stupid love my wife and I is one of my favorite romantic comedies and gushed and and he's like yeah. Tell us when you're ready for a year. You know. Come in when you're ready. I was like okay mic prepared and I came in and it went really really well and this is like the room was rooting for you. You know the room doesn't always root for you in my history my experience but now this new thing thing this intangible thing called Buzz you always look at people like. How did I get that buzz? Like where's it. Come from and then all of a sudden you have buzz and it's cool. It feels good. You can feel it when you walk into a room and you can feel the energy. Oh Gee shift in such a way that I can't wait to see what sterling's going to do Rather than being like who write you know what I'm saying like it makes a huge food difference and so you get the part obviously famously. What do you think it is about? This is us that has so connected with people now now in its fourth season the hope of the goodness. That's the word you've used a private family. All those things come together. Why do you think is connected the way it has yes? I think it has because we're disconnected. I think we as a society of various sort of bifurcated on divisive vice. It like it's very hard to have a conversation with people that doesn't frequently lead to an argument Talking about politics or talking talking about just the state of the world you know and this show is something that I think whether you're in a blue state red-state whatever your a religious affiliation like people know recognize and appreciate the importance of family and the show is about family so it's like we get a chance to put put our side our differences for an hour every Tuesday for about eighteen weeks out of the year. And it's not about US versus them. It's this is us right right. And I feel like people sort of defend themselves consciously unconsciously about being attacked or being sort of putting the box and a certain kind of way and now folks just feel sort of like collectively they get to enjoy the experience of this Pearson family and we go through so much we go through adoption. We go through anxiety where you go through dealing with obesity. We deal with so many different topics. The people see themselves in one or all of us in varying degrees. I think there's a certain kind of reassurance and knowing that you're not doing it alone alone right like hey. Randall understands what I'm going through there. Maybe not so bad. You Know Kate and Kevin get it is not so bad it it takes away the isolation and you brings us together. I was shown a beautiful brings people together. There's no no question about it but there are a lot of shows that attempt to do that. Sure right yeah. There's just something different about and I think you're right. There's somebody on the show that everybody can relate you too. Yeah that he's like me she's like me I've been through that thing and there's also at the heart of it loss. Yeah they're again. They're they're shows up again. was that something you were able to tap into this show as well absolutely. Yeah I mean yeah absolutely you know. Rando has two dads that he's lost yeah And with William in particular of my biological father a soon as I saw knew that story arc was going to be. It's sort of presented me with an opportunity that I didn't have when I was ten and I was an opportunity to say goodbye I to be present at the crossing over of of my father founded Strangely Cathodic Right Ron Safest Jones who is a brilliant brilliant actor from New York City who has worked at this theater as well and a beautiful soul it was a joy to play with him and sort of the parallels between Randall. In in sterling I was able to access in real direct way. I with regards to say goodbye to William kind of like Megan a chance to say goodbye Sterling Sterling Brown Junior And some things just meant to be. I was meant to be random you know. I'm sure other people would have done a wonderful job with it right. That's what I'm saying like I'm the it was just meant for me. It's impossible to imagine anyone else there. Now obviously yeah. Yeah so I. It's it's cool to catch you in this moment where things are going so well for you. I'm curious Korea. How you're handling on the celebrity front your wife? How she handling it? When you're on the cover of magazines and everybody knows you walking down the street and and I imagine we talked about your acting foundation the foundation of your relationship that she's known you are long before the Game Brown Odell Celebrity? So how are you you handling that as a couple and a family one day at a time art it's interesting Celebrity is interesting even using the word is difficult. Yes right it's like yeah I guess so right. I think of myself as an actor because of what I've been able to accomplish as an an actor I've I've gained celebrity Nothing kills peripheral vision quicker than celebrity and what I mean by that is is new. York City is one of the great places in this world to people watch right so many different people at necessities race creed color etc it's Cetera and you just watch fascinating people all the time until everybody's watching you and then you get book. Right I've put on on hoods I've put on hats and it's not because I feel ungracious. or or anything like that but you still a regular human being. That's trying to accomplish rush things through your day right and no one knows that like no one sees you as a regular human being anymore. They're just like Oh oh right not so much in New York and La but it still happens. Yeah right in Middle America and Saint Louis where I'm from. Oh Man. It's hard to go to the mall. I it's hard to go to the mall and so there is a fight for normalcy for me in particular for my I children. Yeah right so I had to establish a couple of things I no longer take pictures. When I'm with my family? One day I was at church and some people what really big fans of the show. They started queuing up. Can we take picture. Yeah yeah sure no problem. No problem as Andrew my oldest. I said. Would you hold daddy's jacket. Andrew took my jacket through it on the ground stopped on it and I was a boy. Did I do something like what's going on. He goes well. You just stop doing what you're doing with me so you could take pictures with these people so I guess they're more important strangers. Yeah and as I Lord have mercy this kid kid hits you like people underestimate the intelligence of children on an emotional intelligence level. You shouldn't oh yeah because they know what's going on. I said I will never do it again. He's like whatever say the picture I was like. No I won't do it again so the next time that we were together we were getting off a plane and these really nice people were like. We didn't bother you on the plane but really big fans of the show where they are. If I took a picture is at Sei. I'm with my family and when I'm with my family they don't take pictures. Could you take a handshake hugging stat. And they were really cool and my son looked at me and he said he remembered. I said I got your back Akbra like you deserve all the things that I had as a child that you take for granted being able to go to a park and kick it with your dad right. Every kid is entitled to that Without Their Dad. Being the center of Focus Right right and so you find the balance. You're like hey nice to meet you. Thank you for the love. I appreciate you now to give back to my kids right. It's interesting my wife is much more gracious gracious. Because she's a lesbian as well and so she's she's she lives and she looks people like even though I think big you this nice dude you all this. And all that America's daddy they don't even know and I'm like I know I try to tell them but they will believe the public unwanted already. Here's who he really is already has but it is. I don't know what I thought it was gonNA feel like On the dude who likes to go to the VON's and the tea and to trader Joe's or whole foods or whatever and do my shopping and I still do I fight for it right and what it means. Is I knowledge you I see and I say thank you and I just try to keep it you. You know what I'm saying. Sometimes I'll put on headphones. Just the black things out a little bit have had people like tap on my headphone. How out? Yeah no touching right people will grab Scher especially because you come into their homes and they feel like they know you right and it's like I get it I'm not I'm never ungracious. Because I do know what it's like to meet someone that you're fan off and they blow you off and it's the worst feeling and I'm not GonNa put that don't anybody so it's my responsibility to be as cordial as I can in the moment right and also to get back to my family. That's a good way to handle it. Yeah finding that balance one of the great things about being the position. You're in now is your production company. Yes that you get to take stories and lift up people who may not otherwise have a platform or voice. Why is that been so important to you? Very few people are afforded the opportunity turning to start a production company. You know it's not like I'm GonNa Start Right like there's there's opportunities that are presented to you and and you feel obliged to take advantage of them because you know how much help was needed in order for you to get to where you are right and if I can make it each year for someone else coming up behind me to get their story out. There we complain about. Diversity is an actor. I've been like how come there's not more roles rose for black men black women et Cetera et Cetera. Now the way in which you saw that and fix that is you have to have as many storyteller tellers behind the camera putting those stories out there right so it's not about just what's happening in front of the cameras. What's happening behind the cameras? Well and if I really have a problem problem with diversity in Hollywood and I have an opportunity to be a part of the solution. Then it's my obligation to take advantage of that opportunity right. Ah So my production company Indian metals is named after my neighborhood in Saint. Louis Missouri were working class African American neighborhood. Where I came came from and I carry with me everywhere that I go and in order to me be successful like I can never experience that disconnect? I feel like some people win. They've become celebrities. Sort of be like all right now. It's time for for me to be a new person right as the person. I am as the person who got me here like my sort of accessibility. I like people people like I really like people and just because people sometimes can kinda bombard me I was like I get it there. There've been sweet or whatnot but I still like you. I still love you so I gotta hold onto that so naming the company named it just reminds me like this is who you are. This is where you came from throb. Don't forget don't forget in terms of the stories that I wanNa Tau of marginalized people that are sort of relegated to the sidelines sometimes uh-huh but it's changing right and we're seeing more people of Color Front and center More Minorities Front and center and I just want to be a part of intelligent intelligent diversity in storytelling right. I'm looking for that black sleep back saying like I like the things that excite me that seem to be relegated aided to just mainstream like how do we make sure that we put a little bit of color into that as well. So that's what and what a legacy to leave right if if this goes on for a long time and so expect it will to watch somebody grow up on the opportunity you gave them and be sitting in a chair like this someday. Oh Dude is somebody we like comes is like yeah I remember. I did this India Meadows action and that was my first chance to do something that would mean the world. That'd be bigger than any acting GIG that I had had an acting is what I love but to be able to provide opportunity for other people. That's that's something that special. I think about Andrei brower. Who won the Emmy before me The actors that have come before the Denzel is the Paul Robeson Ozzy Davis's it's Cetera like these guys giants that endured Paul Robeson did Othello on Broadway and could not go to A.. CAST dinner with his cast because of segregation right like these dudes endured all of this so brown can get up and make people cry the good damn good job of it pretty you dave firsthand. My wife crying constantly that will will you lead me into the next thing I was gonna ask you about. which is the fact that you were historic actor? I mean you mentioned Andrea Been Nineteen Years Since an African American actor had won that award and then Golden Globe the EMMYS. You are a historic actor. You stood on that stage. You weren't just the latest guy to win. Best actor in a drama you you were the first to do something d stop and think about that as part of your legacy or is that just too much right now too much. Yeah it's way too much. It's way too surreal. Yeah because like I was supposed to happen a long time ago. Right Jackie. Robinson did this a long time ago like it's twenty nineteen twenty eighteen or seventeen. When it happened? I was like I I stuff is still happening. Like I never thought I'm not the dude who's on at the avant-garde or like at the forefront of like movements per se. I'm a guy who deeply loves everything that he does. And so when I was told for the Globes in seventy five years at that time I was the first African American male to win. Best lead actor in a dramatic series. He's for SAC which is only twenty five years or something like that but the first house. I oh gosh like this isn't happening is. Is this me. It dawns on me from time to time like I have a place in my office which is in the back of my house and the awards on a couple of different book doc shows and from time to time I look at them I I I won this stuff right is really cool away anyway. I never anticipated winning any of this stuff and to be the first of anybody to do something I feel. Ill equipped to be the first. I I feel like I should be much more articulate Much more sort of militant. I don't know like I feel like the the first of the people they prepared to be the first like you know you have those conversations with branch rickey and you're like this is what it's going to be like. Nobody talked to me like Oh trophies. It's me yeah well I promise I won't keep your all day but I can't let you go without asking about a couple of huge projects coming up frozen. Yeah I mean come on being a part of one. The biggest movie franchises. Yes I have children. Yes believe me a play on a loop in my head all these years later. How cool is that to join that? It's amazing I took my oldest to see the first frozen and he's a boy with very boy like energy. So when I would play the soundtrack form he just I want to hear the first song over and over again and the first song is like they're gonna be the guys that like chop the ice board of cold and winter rare and mountain ring him. I mean it's always say. Wow that's another talent. Yeah but I wanNA hear you wanNA build a snowman. He's like no way I so Savimbi now the names where he can go and like appreciate the daddies in it and my old my youngest is four and he's GonNa love it like he's just got a sensitive if Seoul That sort of built for these things like the first movie that he got a chance to see. All the way through was cocoa. He made it through cocoa and he loved it. Yeah Yeah and I've seen BITs and pieces of frozen functions just as much as like an action adventure or more like an action adventure than anything else. So it's got something for the ladies. Because we have our heroines that are at the forefront of the story but like the boys who have boy energy did you. They're gonNA be riding this ride just as hard as anybody else so I don't get they. Don't get a chance to see a lot. The daddy does so. It's nice when they can see something that he does and vied it perfect yeah. For that age they're right in it right and then the other project I've asked about is the marvelous. Mrs Mazel. Yeah which if the story is true in the speaks to where you are in your career you were like I want to be in that show. And they're like yeah. You can be in that show. And that's not the way it happened Kinda really. I shouted out Rachel's I go. There's ever a way that could be on your show drop in like wreak some havoc house fund. Let me know. And she's like we would love love to have you and then the Palladino reached out to me and they're like we've written this role. We don't really see anybody else doing it other than you. Please come play with US RIGHT AS I. You you kidding me I. I've put it out there and it's happening Omega. It's amazing the You living in that Harlem apartment uptown you can just say. Call somebody and say I want to be on. That show would freak out if you knew that story. Even though I have no idea like having just be happy for you three hundred a week partners you living high off the hog as it is get back on that bus for the exact now. We've come a long way for sure. Stick around to hear more from Sterling K..

Brown i Washington Park you from the Mid West and you see like break dances and see people playing music you the old dudes playing chess you got the students coming from NYU cutting through like it's sort of this magical vast Cornucopia of people just spilling into all these different things like this is New York City. Yeah like I'm in it dude. I Love I would cut through any excuse that could cut through Washington Square Park. Yeah always took. It might get offered a few things. He hadn't heard of before experience. I think so the West fourth stop is over that way until we get off on West fourth line lived in Brooklyn and cut through here to get to school and just talk about people people watching you know what I mean like. This is a place where you watch until everybody's doing yeah. This is a good moment because years ago. Yeah you're at school walk. earpiece Lynn Watch other people absolutely and now everybody in this park is watching you. I think it's Kinda crazy. Yeah it's Kinda crazy every once in a while I fool myself into thinking that I'm still an incognito but I've never met but then there's like people stop and they pull out the camp I guess I guess not anymore. Ah Judging by the number of cameras. I don't think our nine anymore. What do you what do you feel though when you come back to New York and get to walk around and revisit some of these places that were so foundational for you? I remember the post that the city offers right like it's a city that has heartbeat right. And you start start to walk differently. I move faster with like a sense of purpose when I'm New York City and I love that hustle right in. La is just kind of like you you sitting in your car and you're talking on your phone and your chilling but like you won't pin the people to like whereas in La. You have to plan tonight people right but you can just walk around like yeah. Oh Oh really what's going on because it's a walking culture your access to people you feel more connected yet in New York City the you do anywhere else in this country. Yeah subway to subway. I'll do that all the time. And my publicist freaks out is like why is he taking the subway. Because it's my right eye the people I can take the subway anytime I want to. He he freaks out of I go for a walk. Like I'm putting my hood on. It's GONNA be okay. I do feel like you said this.

It's pretty easy here and see famous people on the subway all the time now and they don't get messed up that's right so it's it does give you a bit more latitude but I'm always surprised especially for this as us.

And don't forget to tune into Sunday today every weekend on NBC. I'm Willie geist. We'll see you right back here next week on the Sunday system podcasts. Hey It's Chris as you know sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day-to-day onslaught of news and take a broader. Look at the issues. That's that's what I'm doing each week on my podcast. Why is this happening? We're exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think of it is climate change will be to the the twenty first century. What maternity west of the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics are getting more tribal. Join me for. Why is this happening? New episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts?

Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA

33:15 min | 6 months ago

May 1, Hr 1 Farm Broadcaster Russel Nemetz

"This is mornings with Kale. Fueled by Great Western petroleum only thirteen ten KFI K. May Twenty twenty and a little bit of freedom across the nation throughout the state as a today as that safer at home order relaxes in its phased approach to putting us back to work a little bit of freedom to move about this. As a nation continues to cry May Day over the covert nineteen crisis and struggles to put an absolutely decimated economy back together again. Slowly carefully and methodically but for businesses reopening a throughout areas of the state today. Things certainly won't look the same way they did just six weeks ago six oh nine now thirteen ten Kfi k. a thirteen ten. Kfi DOT COM or so. Gail live local. Fueled by Great Western petroleum so yes starting today businesses in much and again. I need to insert that caveat but not all of Colorado can open their doors to customers for the first time since Governor Jerry. Policed issued a stay at home order about well. It was well over a month ago. I think it went into effect. March twenty-fifth incredible. Isn't it to that? We've been essentially locked down for the better part of six weeks. Unfortunately for Denver residents well that reopening of the economy doesn't apply to them under the safer at home order that went into effect. Just this past Monday or on Monday retail businesses in Douglas County and most of Colorado out aside the Denver area may now open their doors to a limited a very limited number of customers as long as they implement best practices and we all know what those best practices are in a time of Cova. Nineteen are you a business owner? I would love love love to hear from you this morning and argue reopening. And how have things changed in your facility? How are you going to keep yourself and your employees safe? What about your customers? How do you extend that same feeling to customers who obviously might be a little bit nervous as well? Our lives have changed significantly in the past six weeks. Nine seven three five three thirteen ten eight seven seven three five three thirteen ten dropped me a text on our thirteen ten. Kfi Am text line at three one nine nine six by the way. If it's the first time using that text line all you have to do is text. A. K. F. K. A. Two three one nine nine six. And then you can just text the way to your Heart's delight so we've got personal services including hair and nail salons dog grooming. Oh my goodness my one year old puppy. Shitsu named Rudy. Yeah he's sitting up on the window so right now waiting for his girlfriend to take her morning constitutional so if he starts to bark you'll understand why right now though he's just kinda chilling chill laxton but he's a Shitsu that looks like a sheepdog and Yeah so need. Get him to the groomer massage. Therapy personal training Can also open under those best practices guidelines now while many and isn't this the common underlying narrative of just about anything related to cove it nineteen When we talk about the cause and we talk about the symptoms I mean what is covert feet. Have you heard about that one? Yeah we'll get into that in just a few. But apparently it's like when you get Little Red Marks on your feet on the soles of your feet that could mean but not necessarily could mean that you have covert nineteen but when we talk about this novel Corona Virus. It seems as though it's an ever moving target. It's an ever changing story. We do know it's highly contagious. We do now. The Best Practices again. What are the best practices? We we worked through that story yesterday. Talking about for example Aspen. Aspen really cracking down on wearing a mask while the governor has not issued a statewide mask order. It's Well it's pretty clear you just out and about you're going to see folks wherein mass not necessarily to protect yourself From getting covert nineteen because remember This little virus is I mean it's miniscule. I mean you could put thousands of this little virus on the width of a strand of hair. I kid you not but wearing mass in case once again you're silent carrier you're a symptomatic or you have mild symptoms. Whatever the case may be so that you're not spreading it if you are indeed one of the thirty percent walking around with Cova nineteen but yene Aspen. Really cracking down on wearing masks. I mean the first infraction. If you're out and about and you're not wearing a mask is Fifty Bucks seconds. It goes up in the third. I mean they hit you with What was it a two thousand dollar plus fine and the threat of jail time so again. It seems as though it's a moving target when it comes to those best practices but what we know that it means for business owners well. It typically means as many businesses throughout the state in this very slow very harshly phased reopening of the state of the state economy typically means allowing fewer customers and stores at a time and requiring at least six feet of space between anyone in that store. Customers workers are also highly highly encouraged to wear mass working for peace out of the Denver Post by Conrad Swanson restaurants bars fitness centers. Movie theaters are among those businesses. That are still not allowed to open. But again back to the point with all of these guidelines the seemingly dueling guidelines in effect and all of the rules and restrictions and regulations as you move from county to county makes things well a little less than clear. Denver and most of its neighbors to include Adams Arapaho Boulder Broomfield Gilpin Jefferson County's. They've all extended their stay at home. Orders until may eighth so they're non essential businesses must remain closed all except Denver and Gilpin are allowing retailers to offer curbside pickup. And of course as we talk about local governments can also seek waivers from the state to allow for well easier methodologies looser restrictions might be better way to put it then those in the statewide order but oh you need to get the. Papal blessing which Weld County did not do. I might add for these waivers to governments must show a low number of new cases per day or that they are seeing a two week downward trend alongside sign off from local hospitals and officials now Eagle in Mesa County. They followed the rules and they submitted all the paperwork probably in triplicate to the requisite agencies at the state level so he's a eagle and Mesa counties have already received a waiver. Now as you well where The Weld Board County Commissioners working in tandem a- started check your sources in tandem with the wealthy a county department of Public Health and Environment Dr Mark. Wallace did issue that Safer at work. Guideline it's not a dictate. It's not an order. And even as we talked about numerous times governor jared police's safer at home air quote order is not an order because it really cannot be enforced but once again well county issuing those safer at work guidelines and the city of Greeley opted to follow. The governor's safer at home guidelines. So again confusion reigns supreme. Sixteen now thirteen ten K F K. A thirteen ten. Kfi A. DOT COM. So if all goes well we're going to see continued at loosening of the restrictions that we've been living under for the past six weeks on Monday may fourth this is when once again taking a look at The number of cases and the the number of fatalities associated with covert nineteen in the state. Making sure that we're not spiking because if we do spike you know exactly what's going to happen. They're going to clamp down on us once again. Which is why it's important for all of us to observe continue to observe those best practices when it comes to not being around people not being around in groups of more than ten people. If you're sick stay at home. If you're if you're coughing sneezing sneeze into the Crook of your elbow. You Wash your hands. You don't touch your face. Sure go ahead and wear a mask but once again. It's personal responsibility. That is going to determine our future but next Monday many businesses those of large-scale a larger scale will be allowed to return to work with fifty percent of their workforce which begs the question if you are looking either forward to that or anticipating it with a little bit of dread because you've been telecommuting for much of the past six weeks. Are you going to go back into the workplace? And what is that going to look like? We'll get into that in just a few busy busy morning. Head as the food supply chain is devastated by. Cova that nineteen what about? It's very real effect on ranchers. We're GONNA go long long form with a Russell Nimitz of course veteran broadcaster and host of the daybreak morning report. Here right here on thirteen ten. Kfi A when he joins us at six thirty five but at six eighteen this time checks sponsored by carrying hearts home healthcare serving northern Colorado. Since two thousand one where a patient care always comes first nine seven three seven eight fourteen o nine or caring hearts H. Dot Com while the whole sports story in Northern Colorado. The state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to two and thirteen ten. Kfi K. Business as good Samaritans Entertainers. We want to hear from you. On no cone now nine. Am to ten. Am ON THIRTEEN TEN K. Six Twenty six now thirteen ten. Kfi Am thirteen ten KFI K. A. dot com mornings with Gail fueled by Great Western Petroleum. Well as We continue in a phasing back into our workaday lives Many businesses allowed to reopen throughout the state today may fourth Larger businesses are able to reopen a with fifty percent capacity and of course the recommendation is that For those that can continue. If that's the case that can continue to telecommute that they should indeed do so but what about those who are considered to be among the most vulnerable population when it comes to cove in nineteen of course those of certain vintage perhaps with a compromised immune system underlying health conditions? What about those folks going back to work? Well that's seems to be the big question as we do look ahead to Monday. May fourth those restrictions. Continue to ease on US particularly when it comes to work Cher. Haviland is Deputy Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Labor employment and and employment. She said the big questions of the day for workers is. I don't feel safe. Do I have to go back to work? And maybe that's the question you're asking yourself. She continued in this piece. I had pulled out of the Denver Post by Joe Rabin if you are on unemployment do you risk losing your benefits if you refuse to return to work and as with everything with unemployment well. Unfortunately it depends now. Poll as governor police and an executive order on Sunday directed the Labor Department to draft emergency rules to ensure people particularly those deemed vulnerable. Individuals would not would not lose benefits. If they didn't feel comfortable going back to work in their workplace had quotes cove in nineteen related demonstrable on safe working conditions. Now as of Tuesday. These rules were supposed to have been finalized but despite all of my searching I can't find the particular rules by it seems as though there's four criteria that the state is likely to use when deciding if employees can still collect benefits if they turned down an offer to return to work these include the objective risk level of the person's workplace is it has it been infected with Kovic one thousand nine hundred the normal level of risk that workplace with presents without corona virus the Workers Corona virus vulnerability as determined by professional medical standards and finally the vulnerability of anyone. The worker might actually live with. So you can actually go to Colorado Dot Gov and there's a long string of forward slashes and letters and numbers and hyphens just go to Colorado Dot Gov noodle around there because you'll be able to find a list of resources including directions to contact the occupational safety and Health Administration Osha. If you spot any workplace safety violations Yes the SNITCH mentality continues to grow. But that's probably one area in which if your employer is not playing by the rules that yeah oh she should probably know about it. The site also links to a frequently asked questions document the Faq sheet includes information for people who have been deemed vulnerable but are being called back to the workplace. And you know the beef. Packing plants will indeed stay open. Ranchers are filling feeling the corona virus. Squeeze Russell. Nimitz is a veteran ABC broadcaster host of the daybreak market report of course her daily right here around thirteen ten.

And keep them open. Ranchers are feeling. The pinch joined this morning by Russell. Nimitz of veteran broadcaster and host of the daybreak market report heard right here on thirteen ten. Kfi K. A. Russell. Come back to the show. Hey Gayle good morning and thanks for having me on your again on this sunny day sunny Friday morning whether it's in Colorado where you're at or up here in billings Montana where I'm at definitely but Well things not so sunny for the ranchers because even as you have the beef plants staying open to the best of the beef processing plant staying open to the best of their ability. They only have what about a two week window to get their cattle to slaughter before they start losing money. Yeah and that's And that's on the the top end of the optimism scale. I mean As you mentioned I mean this. This meat processing Headline has certainly been one of the biggest news stories. We've been covering and in the agricultural world For the past month month and a half now and I think we touched on the last time we were on the air together and and it just seems to have You know just continue to get bigger and bigger and and worse and worse than nationwide and especially. I mean you guys know it right there in Colorado. I mean you mentioned The mountain states rose in land plants. And of course you've got the the J. B. S. beef plant there and those are just two of many across the country processing. You know major proteins like beef and pork and lamb in of course we've got the poultry industry and You know I was thinking about this morning. I mean this whole corona virus thing Fired off you know a month month and a half two months ago here in this country I mean and people rushed to the stores to get as much food and protein and supplies. They get their hands on paper in the toilet paper now Lysol Spray and Oh my goodness I mean yeah I mean I was just saying I mean for the most part folks in this country have never experienced what it was like to go to the store and see grocery store shelves empty. They did get the witness adding kind of experience that for a day or two but to the blessing of this country and hard working people at the grocery industry the food industry farmers and ranchers the best part about. It is the next day when they went back to that store. Those shelves were replenished for the most part and That's an incredible thing to be able to say because you travel around the cut the world for that matter other countries don't have that luxury I mean. They're grocery store shelves stay empty for for a long long time. I guess where I'm going bringing this whole thing back. We'll circle is if you know if these meat processing plants were to continue to shudder for an indefinite amount of time Eventually we probably would see the meat cases go empty and not be able to Be replenished the next day or the next couple of days and and for me. That's a scary thing to even think about absolutely scary thing though I mean and we on though I mean God. Love our cattle ranchers across the country. Because they're used to dealing with hardships unlike us when we walk into the store and say hey. Where did all the paper towels go? I mean droughts and they've got fires they've got economic volatility and snow storms and tornadoes and tricky equipment and changing consumer demands came across a really stunning stat here nationally. The cattle industry is supposed to is expected to take a hit as large as thirteen point. Six BILLION DOLLARS WITH A B. This according to a study released by the national cattlemen's beef association due to Kovic Nineteen because well. Unfortunately they're being forced You know as these Meat processing plants are alternately shuttered and then reopened they're being forced to keep those cattle feedlots long. I mean far past their processing time. Yeah and that's what you mentioned that thirteen billion dollar number could be on the low side. I mean it could be very well higher. I mean just a couple of weeks ago I did visit with Colin With the NCAA. On this very topic. And I mean it's just a trickle down ripple type will affect when when you have the the one end of the spectrum of the. Us beef cattle industry meaning the meat processors now being shuttered and not able to go to work or either. You know reducing their speed dramatically. I mean at the other end down. You know even to the ranch or who's raising the cows on the land to the middle people like the feet like guys I mean everybody's being impacted by this and just to kind of put it in perspective you know a year ago. Our daily cattle slaughter was a hundred and twenty three thousand head yesterday. That number was eighty thousand. That's down thirty one percent from just a year ago on the pork side. We normally kill about four hundred sixty nine thousand head of hogs per day yesterday. That number was roughly cut in half and that was down thirty seven percent from last year. And that's with you know. Some of the plants still operating to the best of their ability. And you know something like the plant there in Greeley coming back online just a few days ago I mean. Can you imagine what would happen if all these plants were to actually shut down indefinitely? I think that's that's why a lot of ranchers Were very pleased to see. President trump step in earlier this week and invoked that defense production acts not to not take into consideration of the plant workers health and safety but more of a national security issue. If anything it would really be a terrible situation for for consumers you and I and everybody else does not have an ample food supply at our disposal like or used to now. I came across something. That was just unbelievable to me. The fact that the pork and poultry industries have actually had to euthanize animals because of corona virus related disruptions. I is there concern that they're going to have to do the same thing to cattle boy. They're trying everything they possibly can. And not to. I mean and I think You know the president's actions this week have certainly helped alleviate some of that at least for the time being but yeah. You're absolutely right especially over there in the mid West I had a story on a couple of days ago. About you. Know Minnesota pork producers having to an is Their animals because you know that no break I just said normally even at two hundred eighty eight thousand. Hit a hawks that they're slaughtering right now because of the. That's a lot of hogs that have to be slot. And that's per day so these hog producers have all these all these animals You know timed out. Accordingly from the time they're born to you know they're fed and then they're they reach their slaughter weight. And and what do you do with the ones that are ready to go to slaughter? I mean thankfully some of those port plants over in Minnesota at least with the even the reduced workforce With the help of some farm state members of and the White House and Industry have been able to help producers As terrible as it sounds euthanize some of those animals and and at least help them get rid of The animals that will not be processed into food which why people don't even realize that it's like okay if you gotTa euthanized these animals and what do you do with the carcasses there after if they're not being processed into pork loin bacon or whatever your favorite pork you you have to get rid of that stuff. So but the other ripple effect Gal has been just the the the marketplace and what you know headlines like this have done to to pork and beef prices. I mean on one hand. You have cattle feeding losses now reaching two hundred and sixty two dollars per head. That's what cattle feeders. On a good day are losing not putting anything into their their pocket while packer margins for beef and pork especially on the beef side. They're actually now making seven hundred seventy one dollars per head so it's it's no wonder that farmers and ranchers are stressed out beyond belief wondering what in the world is going on. We have record high meat prices at the grocery store but yet we're we're getting pennies on the dollar for the product. Were were still trying to raise. Even though now we're having to figure out a way to either euthanize them or get them to market but yet on the top end the packing guys are making nearly eight hundred dollars per head. It's it's some uncharted waters for sure. And that's why A Lotta Hey organsations and now the USDA and the White House and Department of Justice and everybody else is investigating. You know this whole Meat Processing Industry from from gate the plate and see what the heck went wrong how to get broken and more importantly how do we get it fixed and tackling back on track well and hopefully we can get it fixed sooner than later because I'd have absolutely devastating consequences? Yeah I mean the bigger guys. I mean everybody likes to beat up the large farmer and rancher and by that I don't mean anybody raising thousands and thousands and thousands of head of livestock. I mean it's just it's just kinda how things are in today's egg industry. I mean you have to to run numbers whether it's cattle or sheep or pigs or acres of wheat corn barley. I mean in in order to survive you kind of have to run some numbers and and It for the bigger guys. It's it's hard enough to hang on and for the smaller producers out there. I mean I feared this. This could be the end if we don't get this thing figured out 'cause I mean everybody's Kinda on a lifelong right now. Boy Isn't that the truth restaurants veteran broadcaster host of the daybreak market report. Tell you what As this continues to evolve or devolve. Let's hope it's the former rather the latter. Let's stay in touch all right. That sounds good. Gail I always appreciate the opportunity as do I and What can we learn more about you? Well the best. The best place right now is just to Visit my Nimitz Communications? facebook page but long. We're on the air. I'm looking forward to rolling out a brand new website and kind of a new rebranding of The Evan Slack Radio Network In the next few weeks or so kind of bringing things up to the twenty first century so to speak so or so to speak. I guess and so. I'm looking forward to that and pretty soon. We'll have a a website and facebook page and a and a new radio network name to go by on your airwaves down there very cool.

Just yesterday that Starting may eighth all passengers on its flights will be required to wear mass or other coverings over their nose and mouth.

How To Escape Your Children's Bedroom Without Waking Them

"Hi I'm Chris. Keppler and welcome to disease happened to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and rider. I love tilling and sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life in befuddle men. Just for you our story. This week is from Andrew. Not who you'll find known medium DOT COM and here is how to escape your children's bedroom without waking them. I hear at least one of your offspring is a light sleeper and also requires your presence by their bedside until they have entered rim. How wonderful light sleeping and dependency are signs of extreme intelligence? Probably of course. That doesn't make things any easier. You're trapped in their bedroom right now aren't you? You've tried to get out four times but your child somehow stop snoring and wakes up every time you move remain calm. I know you've been there for several hours but I have a few tips to extricate you from your current predicament. One stay low. Assuming you're lying on the floor. Don't try to stand up and walk out of the room. I don't care if your child is sawing more logs lumberjack. At a logging competition standing up beside her bid is a recipe for disaster instead. Flip over on your hands the knees and crawl a safe distance away from the bed. A safe distance might be anywhere from five feet to seven miles if necessary crawl all the way out of the room out the front door down the street to the convenience store in the corner and ask the store attendant directions to the nearest deserted island. Use Your Gogo gadget arm to hook the doorknob on your way out. Open it ever so slightly and Shimmy gap. This won't work but it's still fun because it makes you feel like a Middle Age Ninja. What does this sound like too much work? Well I have one question for you. Do you love your child or not to replace any squeaky floorboards and recarpet with an extra thick pad while it might seem like replacing your entire floor. After your child falls. Asleep is impossible. Just think of all the banging and loud cursing your fitfully. Sleeping child is only programmed to wake in response to you trying to desert her any other noise no matter how loud is actually fine so go ahead and rip up that dingy carpet and bolt down any loose boards. That keep foiling your escape. Make sure to use an extra thick pad to dampen the sound of your movements and the screams you emit as you lie. Face down. Utterly demoralized practically devouring the plush fiber like. It was your last meal as you wail plaintively desperate for relief. Don't worry about getting perfect laying new flooring in the dark is hard if it's not perfect though. It won't help your escape and if it is perfect. It also won't help because your footsteps no matter how muffled reverberate with the unmistakable sound of betrayal and abandonment three work on your core strength. Let's face it no matter how well these tips work. You're going to be standing up and immediately sitting down when your child's startles awake at least one hundred times per night while you're lying on the floor in the dark trying to answer in penetrable questions your child lobs it. You like disheartening. Confetti bombs develop your core strength by doing a hundred or so crunches what happens if a dragon breathes fire on you while you're on the toilet. Oh dear how are we going to answer that one? Try One hundred more crunches while you're down there. Contemplating core strength isn't very useful for escaping the bedroom but everyone likes toned ads right four. Remove your skeleton. A recent study found that the leading cause of waking sleeping children while exiting their bedroom was creaking bones. Do you have creaky bones? If so it's time to make a change kiss that pesky skeleton goodbye and sweet freedom. Hello sure removing your entire skeleton one bone at a time until you're nothing but a helpless meet sack might sound extreme but look do you want to cling to your precious bones or do you want your child to grow into an adult capable of trusting others and maintaining lasting relationships. You could only choose one and really things will be much better without a skeleton. You will no longer creek like a rusty windmill. Every time you move and you'll be blogging across the brand new carpet and out of that bedroom in no time and once you slither and toppled down the stairs. Like a puddle of silly putty. It's a straight shot to the recliner and a date with your favorite Netflix. Show at your partner to handle the remote though. Otherwise things might get sticky. Thanks so much for listening.
