"When he was diagnosed, he had cancer all over his liver. And so that's why it's really, really important. And, you know, the University of Michigan showed that colonoscopies went up 20% after I did that, which the current effect. I know, which is really incredible and I'm not patting myself on the back, but what I'm saying is, you know, those are a lot of people walking around today who wouldn't have been if they hadn't gotten screened. So, you know, the real message is that screening saves lives and people need to do it. Okay, Katie, last question. Last question, it's a humdinger. Oh God. But it's really not. So because it's Thanksgiving and you spent years as the dowager of the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade, not only that I have several Emmys to prove that Alyssa, for my incredible work at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. So all that said, do you have any particularly special memory of the parade? And let's see. Well, I used to love doing it with Willard Scott, because Willard was just so funny, but also kind of a little bit scatterbrain. And I used to have to hit him on his stomach to start talking because sometimes he would get so carried away and I would just smack him and he would start talking. So we had this very funny relationship. When we did the parade together because it was just sort of a hot mess. But you know, it was just fun. I my daughter was on the Hillary Duff float and I think that's what she has on her insta bio that she was a proud participant on Hilary Duff's float. I think she played like a little baker when she was about 8 years old. So it was really fun when my kids, I think, occasionally, I would stick them on a float because they had to wait for me to be finished with a parade before we went anywhere for Thanksgiving. So that was fun. And then, you know, there were always wind issues. And then, you know, we're Barney, wasn't a long enough. And I would, you know, Bernie was a big show. Was that a big show for you when you were a kid? Probably not. Yeah. It probably came about 15 years later, but I used to say he's super duper at, you know. And then I always felt bad for the, you know, members of the dance troops who would have to do the splits when it was raining. I'd be like that must be very uncomfortable. Katie Couric, thank you for coming on hysteria. Your new book going there is out now and people should read it. Thank you so much alys I really appreciate thanks for reading it and thanks for liking it and thanks for wondering what the hell they were talking about. Thank you to jaleesa, Dana, akeelah, Caroline, Katie Couric, and to you the listener. We're so thankful to you and we wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and we'll be back next.

"We are back and with a very special guest. Her memoir going there is causing quite the stir. It's available now. I'm thrilled to welcome to hysteria, the one and only Katie Couric. You guys. Katie, when I sat down to read your book after seeing the New York Post and the ladies on the view, I was convinced that by the time I was done, I was gonna have to name this pod segment. Katie Couric is the fucking worst. But unless I left wondering what all the drama was about when you're excerpts were released, I have read the whole book. I mean, let me tell you something. There may be a couple petty sidebars, but on our podcast, we actually have a segment called I feel petty. So you talking about Jeff Zucker wearing keds is not exactly rate in our opinion. Katie, why were people so crazy? Well, by the way, I made fun of him at the time and teased him about it. So, yes, why are people crazy? That's an excellent question. Do you think it's 'cause they don't read? I think possibly they don't read. I think they're lazy. I think that tabloid media is desperate for clicks and salacious headlines. So it was actually fascinating on one level to watch disinformation. In real time, emerged from this book, I think that, I mean, look, you look at everything about social media now. You look at the fact that Facebook prioritizes the angry face emoji. You know, clearly there's this intersection of psychology and technology that is emerging and really kind of controlling a lot of media outlets. And then what's fascinating to me is that kind of the trashy tabloid press, which is very either a gender driven or needs clicks as I said. So they're commercially driven. Gets picked up by legitimate reporters who also haven't read my book, and then it just kind of cascades from there. So what really matters to me now is that the book is out, people are reading it, they're responding to it. Most of them seem to be loving it. And, you know, I think it's just kind of the media ecosystem where we're living them right now. And I think, you know, a lot of petty jealousy and resentment and all kinds of weird stuff emerges when someone who has been successful writes an open and honest account of their life. But it's been interesting.
Katie Couric Turns on Matt Lauer—all for Her Book
"Talk about Katie Cora, get Somebody, I'm not going to mention his name because like I said on my Patreon, people email me 99% of them are wonderful people will say great things and they're really sweet. 1% are assholes. This guy today is an asshole. He's listening because he always does. I won't say his name because now I think people who want to get my goat. I treat them as schools, shooters. No names. Just trust me, his initials are JC and he's a shithead. He emails me something to the fact that ha, did you see what Katie corrected, you know? You don't know shit. What are you, you just throw shit against the wall and help it sticks. I really don't know what he's talking about. I think he means that Katie Couric went on The Today Show and talked badly about Matt Lauer. And I had said on preview shows that she liked him and got along with him because I happened to know they had an affair, but guys like JC don't know a goddamn thing. He probably lives in, I don't know, east ass wipe, Alabama, and thinks he knows all about the New York crowd. He knows who gots. The fact is they did have a relationship. Matt Lauer was known to be a dog and bang a lot of coworkers. But when all the smoke came out, those coworkers didn't want to say anything bad about Matt. Some of them actually did, they figured, let me jump on the Walt train. Well, that's what Katie Cora did the other day on The Today Show. She was actually invited back to her old stomping ground, something she thought she'd never be able to do. And when she went back, she came with the excuse of, well, I did my own reporting and really found out some stuff about Matt. I hadn't known previously. Yeah, okay. As if you're a journalist. You're not a journalist, Katie Couric. You had shit fed into your ear for years. So she went on the woke train and decided to say, what I found was that reprehensible and disgusting. Of course she's gonna say that now. You think anybody can go on air and say wonderful things about Matt Lauer and expect to sell a book? She's selling a book schmuck. She has to be woke.
Katie Couric Blasted Over Stunning Admission About Ruth Bader Ginsburg Interview
"Aren't you glad that Katie current got her wish? Katie Kirk was she revealed in her. I got to get this book. I mean, her book evidently trashes a bunch of her colleagues, but she also admits that she was protecting RBG. From herself, Katie Couric did a sit down for Yahoo news and interviewed the late Supreme Court Justice and beloved beloved iconic justice. People have Ruth Bader Ginsburg t-shirts and, you know, she's the boss. What they call her? What was your nickname? Yeah, yeah. Notorious RBG. Well, she had a pretty strong belief about people who disrespected the national anthem. By kneeling. She had a message for Colin Kaepernick. And the message was pretty strong. The message was, it's disrespectful. It's pretty shameful and you got appreciate the country you're in. And you're not showing a level of appreciation when you disrespect the national anthem by getting on a knee. Hey lefties. That was RBG. However, Katie Couric edited that out of the interview. Because well, she's elderly, she maybe didn't understand the question no. It didn't fit the narrative. So show Katie Couric journalist decided to edit it out. In her memoir, going their couric rights, how she edited out the part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during The Star-Spangled Banner are showing contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.
Katie Couric's Nanny Comes out Swinging
"Katie Couric doesn't want to be a news again. Not on the big three networks anyhow. She got plenty of money in the bank. She's worried about a $100 million. She had a real estate all over. She's not going to starve. So now is a great time to tell the truth the whole tooth, whole tooth. I see. 'cause every time I look at her, I think of those small baby teeth. And that's why truth became tooth. I swear I thought I was gonna say tooth. Tell the truth the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth. Either way you know what I mean, it both words make sense. So she survived the wrath of female anchors, but hey, guys, now comes the real fight. The dirty fight. The fight from the scorned nanny. Oh, I love when it gets down to this. This is the mud level. Mud, mud wrestling level. The other day in page 6, that nanny came out punching. Now, she didn't much like that Katie wrote in her book that this former nanny was delusional obsessed and tried to destroy her marriage to Jay monahan. So now the nanny is saying, oh, you want to hear some shit? Okay. Katie used to pick her nose and put the snot on the pillow. She lay the boogers out on a pillow at night. Her husband even showed me. She used to fought up a storm. And I don't know, maybe because of all that farting, the nanny says that Katie also took to turning her dirty underwear inside out instead of changing them for new ones. I'm guilty of doing that too. But I had just slept over a friend's house and I forgot to pack another pair. Also, I was 12. But if you've been up on the whole nanny story, and I was 'cause it started when I first became a gossip columnist back in 1991. This is going on for a long time. The nanny's story seems to be a bit of get back for what she and Katie have been fighting about for a long time. There was a, there was a lot of single white female to that relationship.
AJ's Thoughts on Katie Couric's 500 Page Memoir 'Going There'
"That, the big story of the day, God almighty. The former today and CBS News host Katie cork, 11 city book tour to promote her book, which comes out October. Going there. I mean, I mean, look, she settled a lot of stuff in this book. I think a lot of it's couched a lot of it she can kind of squirm away from some things. She said, I gotta give her some credit because she really did tend to give it to some people. So I'm not gonna say she didn't really, you know, go to great lens to avoid hurting people's feelings. She told some truths, but, you know, she spared some criticism from others. She settled some scores from her four decades in TV. A 500 paid funding page book. I think it's in excess. I think that's the Barack Obama level of nauseous. But she tore into ex-boyfriends, some colleagues at NBC and CBS, she talked about prince Harry, she didn't have any love for Martha Stewart. Katie Couric roasted her at a roast in 1996, anything Stewart can do, I can do better kind of shit. And she said, look, prison, humbled her. That's not a big deal. We all know prison humbles people who do bad things. But she took some shots at prince Harry, people are up in arms because she said that she met him in a polo match in Brazil during his wild alt sewing phase. And she recalled him smelling of cigarettes and booze. And it oozed from every porn his body. It's not a big

"Is that we are seeing republican leaders who are saying get vaccinated. I mean governor. Asa hutchinson is beating the bushes in arkansas. doing that. Steve scalise says is really been promoting vaccines. Even even governor disentis in florida has been saying that. Despite the fact that he is saying that he doesn't want there to be masked mandates he's encouraging vaccination which is good new york. City will be come the first. Us city Require proof of at least one vaccination shot in order to enter places like ours restaurants. Jets do you think the strategy should be adopted. Nationwide it seems to be a pretty good way to motivate people. Get vaccinate now. I do think that as a public health person we should be putting more pressure on people to get maximum. I believe when the fda comes through hopefully within the next few weeks to make this an officially approved vaccines plural as opposed to just any you a. I hope that we will then have. People feel much more empowered to do some kind of mandating for example universities and colleges saying. You're not going to be able to come in person unless you get vaccinated. I think that would chuck a lot of young people who arrested who were resistant to get vaccinated. I think large corporations will be doing the same thing. I was gonna ask you that they will might resolve. Tyson foods requiring employees to be fully vaccinated needed. You think that more will be empowered. After i do. I'm katie. i'm convinced of that. I think that if you talk to people in off the record they don't want to be talking about it publicly. They're saying that once they get the backup of a fully approved vaccine. They'll.

"Nothing's written and they say it's a go and then the first script comes in after the pilot and it's where i i do think i am. Truly one of the luckiest people on the planet because that that script fell into my lap robert michelle king wrote such a complex interesting character and yes it's about the cast it's about the writing i mean ultimately the first thing it's about as the writing really But then as robert michelle said to me so many times in dailies they would watch my character. And i would wait for a minute before i answered because i always felt like alicia really balanced things out in her head and thought things through. I noticed my husband who's calls himself a recovering lawyer. He always looks at two sides of each argument before he has an answer. And i'm i'm an actress. I'm cleric. I'm like i'm emotional. Everything i answer like way too fast. Everything and i loved the idea of being more. Let me wait. Let me way out two sides and they would then start writing to what i was doing. That's the luxury of television. It's like a novel. You know the writer guests also see the the actor of their every day and then they say wait. She's really good at that way. I'm gonna write to that strength and and that dance that you get to do with writers. There's just nothing the er was the same you know. We just had great writers. So it's the writing. I and then hopefully see what you can do with the actors in it. And i i mean. I was blessed to do that. Show and also the character development you know the dilution of all the characters. I think absolutely it kept growing and changing and surprising us. Yeah and it's you know tv. Tv's like reading on a really good novel. You get to turn page you get to live inside the characters they stay with you week after week. Very different than a movie which is two hours of beginning a middle and an end with tv. It's ongoing so it sort of this. Just guilty pleasure. All the time. And i couldn't wait to read each script that not all television shows. Were like that you know so on. Listen we're almost at a time. But i was just gonna close by a question that someone asked which was in writing this book. What did what did you learn about yourself in the process. You know what did you come away recognizing her realizing that. Perhaps you hadn't before. I think main thing that i that that hit me the most was while i was writing about my plates spinning in the seven years i was working I realized and learned about myself. That if i do not take time for myself and let go of trying to be the perfect wife. The perfect mother the perfect friend or daughter sister or even the per actor or even the perfect actor. I will be no good to anyone especially myself and that nobody wants to hang out with a martyr is so boring and so exhausting and i realized as i was writing and i was like you'd better live by these words girl. You better. you bet. It's funny because in the pandemic people were asking were. What did you do find alone time. 'cause when you're locked down with a kid and a husband anyway and i and i. I'm finding out that everyone did this. I ran to the bathroom and shut the door. Known bother you in the bathroom. So i i would sit on the floor and maybe returned some emails or just breathe. Just read something so the newspaper. 'cause no one can bother you. The bathroom and i realized that i will always find time to to run the bathroom and shut the door. And and beyond my own I need to be alone. And that's what i loved about. The process of writing was that every day. I would be able to come into my office and no matter. What for two hours. Make myself right every day. If i if i could and some days are great and some days i had nothing to say but i did love the alone time of that. Well i know that that people can't wait to see sort of what you do next. And as i said you've got some people who are serious fans including me. And i wish you all the best with the buck. It's so exciting. And it's such an accomplishment. So i hope you feel proud of yourself for a lot of her finger keyboard and and really telling your story and you did such a beautiful job. So congratulations thank you so so so so much. Thank you for doing this of being so supportive worlds. And by the way can find sunshine.

"Yeah that one was really hard to look at my own behavior. And as i was writing the book of course it was over pandemic and george floyd was murdered and this again was just another example. But this time it was nine minutes and it was caught on video and it struck different as it did for a lot of white folks and and i just went back and i remembered all of the little conversations i've had with my black friends and the defensiveness in my not willing to advocate as much as i've advocated for gender equality and sexism which showed me that i was more defensive about it. That's all it did was it showed me. Oh why wouldn't i. Fight is hard for the nation of racial prejudice as i do for the equality of women men. There's a there's something missing especially because it's growing up as a behi-. I'm told that you can't separate these. Two things injustices injustice like you know. Racial prejudice is if anything the most persistent evil in the world. And and i just had to dig in and i had to look at it and i'd ask myself why. Why am i defensive about it. what is it about. What is it about this subject. That is more uncomfortable for me. And maybe for other white folks. And i hadn't seen the example of other people really going into detail about ways that they've been racist and i think i think everyone's afraid of cancer culture. Maybe a little bit and being held accountable. But if you look at that generally that's when somebody is not willing to look at their stuff is not willing to bring themselves off of the quote unquote better still. And how can we learn like if this is for white folks. How can how can we white folks learn. If we don't have that example. If i don't know the ways that katy kirk has messed up. I looked up to katy kirk. Well how is katie couric failed and this way will one. It'll make me feel better too. I can learn from your mistakes. And i wasn't seeing that anywhere. I wasn't seeing that on instagram posts. I wasn't seeing anybody. Talk willingly willingly about ways that they have messed up and not been racist or mistreated black folks or or been a bad friend. And so i am going to process. It was also healing for me. I share a story about my friend. And i share one of my best friends jamie And and the and there's a lot more conversations than these. And i did it because i want other white folks to know that it doesn't make them a racist or a bad person to have been brought up in a system that without realizing it awards those of us that look a certain way differently gives us a head start if you will and of course we're going to say things that dumb and we're going to hurt people but we have to recognize that and then we can move forward and we have to apologize for it and come to terms with and not everybody's gonna wanna accept our and that's okay too so it was really hard. I'm grateful i did it. It's one of my favorite pieces of feedback has been from white folks who say that chapter changed their perspective on the movement because again just like the fragile ego we have the fragile white ego as a dad and as someone who writes a lot about experience that you had as the younger man. What can we start doing for this next generation. I feel like they're so far ahead of us. I mean you're are you a millennial justin or like i'm considered an old millennial and ultimately a majority patrick millennial and i'm a young baby boomer. You're a baby baby boomer. I'm an old millennial forties the cutoff. Now i'm thirty seven so you've got an i'm not gonna lie will say i'm sixty four. And what what the help help It's all about the ring. What can be done to to help your kids and my kids and you know. We talked about the suicide rate being so high. I think the average person who takes aaron life is the forty seven year old male.

"You know you and also society's been talking about this for a long time you know. This is nyman tony about this year. Long yeah and maybe not man. But still i think you know just being in the media as long as i've been just in this is not necessarily a new phenomenon and i'm curious why more progress has been made in really investigating these sort of male archetypes and standards and pressures. And you know you talk about not only toxic masculinity being bad misleading and toxic praise. You talked about the guy code and grow a pair. I'm just curious why we haven't made more progress. And also i have a this is a two parter and i wonder how has kind of Me too and time stop. And this reckoning about gender equality and also racial equality that we've seen almost simultaneously if that has made made it worse in some ways that men are gravitating towards kind of clingy to their masculinity and away that may be the grip was starting to be looser.

You got your masters in mechanical engineering. I mean what inspired you to to be such a huge achiever. It was about in the beginning. What perspective do you have. I mean i had no perspective. On companies hierarchies in seat ios. None what i wanted to do is get a job that that earned enough money. That's why i picked chemical engineering. This was very insightful. Choice about you know. I just went to a book. Your very practical very practical job. That could pay the most money. After four years of college. We had no option but to go to college. My mother said basically no choice. I would always say how you're gonna pay for it said. Don't worry about that that's me. Take your business uptick in my business. And so i looked it up and it was chemical engineering. Going to be a chemical engineer for you as a college make the most money twenty five thousand dollars or whatever it would have been twenty five thousand dollars. Twenty five thousand dollars was like. Oh my god i twenty five thousand dollars. We can change our life for twenty five thousand dollars. It was that straightforward that practical decision. No complications literally twenty five thousand dollars a year for years of collared debts. It of course. I didn't go to four years. I went to five and a half. Got my master's degree and by the time i ended college. My mother was to put so sick and dying literally a couple of years after that. Right when i could have started switching back and give it to her and make her life a little bit more comfortable which katie would have been easy. Think about this right five. I could have made her life easier without too much complications. And i ran out of time. You know. I basically this time and she she. She died in hospital of that. Is the center of the heartbeat hospitals in new york. But this hospital was. Bellevue was so overrun. At that point. It was so crowded taking care of all kinds of things at age. Was you know how it was a time. And so she didn't get great care. I think this is not that. The people ignored her. It was just a. I was not capable of pushing it. If my mother had gotten sick when i was older. I would have literally been able to get the caper. Her right advocate for her. And i just didn't even know how to do it much instead. It was possible to. Do you know i had no idea when my husband was sick the first time when he got ill way before he died along collapse when he went into the hospital literally. I was the general lyric. This is what's going to happen this day. You guys can't. I wanna know what's going on. Who's going to see him etc. If i had half of that i would have surely been alleged. Sounds like you. You have a lot of Sounds like you're you feel a lot of guilt about huge huge of. It took me a lot of time. And i'm not gonna cry on this to get over the fact that you can't you can't live your life backwards to force rank if he would've known differently but of course you didn't know so you can't kind of keep winding back about what i should have done this. I should then wasn't that i knew what to do and didn't do. I had no clue what to do. And that's one of the reasons. Why now i pushed so hard for basic that as citizens of the world we have. We shouldn't have to have somebody who who has time and energy and our position to advocate for us to get things that are like the pavlov's need right anyway it. It took a lot of time for me to get past that. And even now. I cry but i talk about.

I possibly can in life that there's like days where you're just really frustrated because i've tried to like do emails and text people back and even just have coffee or take a shower and he will let of and you're just you know frustrated. That's really hard because you're like gosh. I wish there was like somebody else year that could you know it. His dad that could be like coming home is like we're going to do this.

It was so exciting. Because you know when you're in a broadway show you only get nominated if you're a new broadway show and so you only perform if you're new broadway show so it's it's a huge huge deal if you're asked to perform at the tony awards and you're performer. I mean there's a lot of times you do. Fourteen broadway shows but never get to perform at the tony awards because it doesn't work out and so they are. The number that they did was an all male number next big number. Because he was nominated for a tony and susan stroman called me up one down. Never forget it. She said you know we need somebody to come on and carry Give nick his gun. And so i thought it would be perfect if it was you and i think she had a good inkling that neck and i were you know kind of flirting from onstage. Offstage in so. I know she kind of probably picked me for that reason too but it was very kind of her to choose to just walk out and walk walkout a walk on and off stage because it was so excited that i got to perform the tony awards and give nick his gun and then no one really knows but he really messed up his lines singing and as i was handed his gun. I was going. You're really just messed up your lines. And he's looking at me. Like i just met them and he killed himself a whole day. All we was so sad that he messed up his lines but nobody knew it was going to say. I think you're the only to notice gut. I saw him dancing and singing and thought. Wow you know he. He was so tall right. How tall was nick. Six five katie's. Oh my god fantastic dancer. Hard when you're that all isn't it all a dance like that. Yeah and you know You know susan's drove all about dancing into the ground really using your lower body kind of staying underneath yourself when you dan said and it was an all male number in there.

"How the commander evolved. Well i I love the idea that he goes through the joanie and ends in place of redemption seemingly. And how paradoxical that he might get to that place of clarity even if it's momentarily and have snatched away somewhat in the finale but it was. It was lovely for him to come face to face. Not so enjoyed that same with lizzie. Way he he apologizes. You know parts of that apology. Which a genuine. And that's parts of fred old fred. But there's still parts of this sort of predator inside all of that apology as well. In sort of reclaiming the narrative in his own predatory fashion but It was lovely to go on. That journey in the season is really about bad about relinquishing and reflecting What can can this characteristic. Change his spots side out no but But he came close which was really lovely to be invited down that road but about for you yvonne. Did you envision sort of what that moment would be. Like for serena kind of allow. Don't just because she's you know. Having this moment with june. I don't necessarily believe she asked come full circle. You know. i think she's just so she just goes from moments moment kind of figuring out what's going to be the most ideal situation from right now and her ideal situation is that she doesn't want to have the stress in the regrets or any kind of of what she's been doing with. James is old time. I feel i can. So what's convenient for. Her is to apologize and beg for forgiveness. And although i do think there is a huge element of truth in it. I don't know that it comes from that. Genuine plays of. I genuinely feel horrible. For what i did. I think it's more. I just need you to forgive me so i can have a comfortable pregnancy. You know what i made. So it's itself. I i kind of feel that way. I don't know i'd be interested to hear avid that. That's that's how. brisk chime in a well i can. People don't change very much or very easily. And i think people change quickly and easily ad television but what about says its exactly right. You know. It's in the moment we make lots of decisions that we say lots of things but as human we don't change that quickly and and i think the show is frustrating in the same way that people in our lives are frustrated that they don't change quickly enough and that more people don't get out of north korea but those things are complicated parts of the real world and as much as we'd like lawrence and and the characters that vaccine to be on edge warrants video of honor. Everybody i guess. Joe you want them to pick the good side and and get toss away the bedside but there is no such thing and it doesn't happen and they are who they are and and you know i don't know very many people who have you know truly had kind of regret in their life for the things that these people have gone. I don't know that there's enough regrets in the to muster. So and. I think i don't know there was a scene. I wish i had written down what you said about what had been taken away and the power of men and sort of systemic issues with gender and sexism. I don't know that really resonated with me did that. Are you in the middle of sometimes saying your lines and thinking. Yes i i feel what june feels about the state of the world all the time all the time whether or even just stem sometimes globally but also sometimes just on on a personal level. She's such a personal character to me And i've put so much of myself into her and at this point is a great thing that happens when you're on a show for awhile which is the Relationship between you and the writers and the show runner becomes very fluid. And you know at first. You're doing what they are writing. And then there's sort of writing to what you're doing and it kind of goes back and forth in this in this wonderful way All the time all the time and sometimes other characters to will say things that i that really really resonate with me You know lawrence often when speaking about june it resonates with me. I learn a lot about june from the other characters. Whether i'm in the senior. Not madeline lemme ask you about janine because She has quite an adventure in this this season and we learn a lot more about her backstory. Which i really appreciated and enjoyed. And i'm curious if you did as well and how it impacted the way you played her from that moment on. 'cause i who knew yeah i mean i tried for so long for the first three seasons relate to not make any real decisions about who i thought was because i knew that eventually we would find out and i wanted to be able to soak up. Anything that russert. Jc who who written the episode. I wanted to just kind of fully embrace that and I was really glad very very proud to be able to tell this kind of story. The story line for janine the relationship the relationship between union janine and just everything it just colored so many things for me to get this back story in that confrontation between june janine. Everything just kind of became a little brighter to me. about janin's he's always been like a big part of my life and my heart and she disliked she's tattooed in there now. Really especially after this Doing that episode and episode five as well. It's interesting bruce. How you the writers and you and everyone who's putting this together how you figure out when you tell a back story of character. I know i really enjoyed hearing more about serena and what she was like before gilead became gilead. And how do you determine who's pastor whose history you're going to mind and and and why i think we'd mine everybody's if we had the time i mean You know they're all stronger. Extraordinary actors. Were curious about their back stories. And i think that Mattie as much as she was trying not to decide as lizzie was saying mattie was telling us all the writers wet janin's backstory was over the last three years slowly So she was making a decision but You know. I think all the baxter's and from the response from the audience are super appealing and satisfying. I just wanted to say this year particular under cova Mattie talks about that that episode. Like it's normal episode. That episode was incredibly difficult undercover and the nine scenes we had of her in the past ended up being three scenes and everything changed all the time and she was an absolute professional and also managed to get as much out of the story as we would have gotten him a longer version in the shorter version. And that's attesting to to her and christina the director and everybody else It was a remarkable performance under under normal circumstances. This remarkable this year. I t breathtaking. What she was able to do. So i in in.

"That I think a lot of people were so thrilled about it. But i think simultaneously. There was a lot of worry in the general public will. Gosh that's sort of quick and maybe it won't work because it was developed so quickly you know there is a couple things in a lot of people haven't really been told in that. Is that the work on this class of vaccines in this family of viruses had been going on for a long time before this particular corona virus emerged we seem to other corona viruses sars in two thousand and three and the murs as been percolating along in the middle east for quite some time so work on corona virus. Vaccines had been going on in the background and a lot of the important steps of developing vaccine had already been accomplished as part of the reason why we able to jump on this so quickly and more or less substitute in the specifics of this corona virus into the platforms in the backbone of the work. That had already been done but they don't think that story was really completely told and so people have the impression that we had nothing and then all of a sudden we had a fully formed bac seen that does seem very fast and i think the emphasis on how quickly we could get people vaccinated. Did make people worry about the safety out. One of the things that i'm proud of. The pharmaceutical industry for is that we stood strong with the fda and said we want for civil clarity on what the requirements for approval are but also we will not take safety shortcuts and we all step forward and signed a pledge to that effect that even though we knew how important it was to get an authorized vaccine as quickly as possible. We pledge no safety shortcuts in. We wanted to make sure that when the pandemic vaccines went through the regulatory approval process that they were subject to the same high standard that we use for all of the other vaccines that we've made and i feel really proud of that and at gives me a lot of confidence. It doesn't mean that there isn't a side of factor that there couldn't be a problem down the road but we're using high standards. We're watching and reporting what we do see. Is it disconcerting. That one in three americans say they will not get vaccinated according to a recent poll. You know vaccine. Hesitancy was a problem a year before pandemic even was known. Who cited vaccine hesitancy is when the top ten health challenges in the world in two thousand nineteen. So it's a problem in our society. Part of the problem is too broad. Mistrust in science. Part of the problem is mistrust in the people who are providing information and making those kinds of recommendations. Then there's a whole host of other reasons that may have nothing to do with vaccines but have to do the social context in which people make their health decisions in their trust the government or trust of the health system. more broadly. so it's been a very important problem for a long time now you bring pandemic into it and then you bring forward something new new approaches to vaccine -nology that people haven't been familiar with so it's understandable that there would be some spectrum of hesitancy vaccinate a lot of people now i think almost two billion doses of vaccine have been administered around the world so we know a lot more now than we did in january. I think that's helping some people feel like okay. You know we've watched we've learned I'm ready but there still is a sizeable proportion of our population. Who for whatever reason doesn't feel that vaccine is the right decision for them. And i am about that because i think our hopes herd immunity being achieved are dwindling. If we don't get a high enough coverage of our population to really quench those last those last arms that are protected. So i really worry that we're going to have endemic fatigue and that as we head into a situation where looks very promising in the short. Run if we're not vigilant and we go too. Far in terms of opening.

Thanks so much for having me. This is really great. Where would people start. Well first of all. I would say people do not get discouraged because it may seem like. There's a huge amount of podcasts. Out there and there are about a million but if you take a look at youtube there's about thirty million youtube videos so really or thirty million youtube channels. So there's not that many podcasts. So but if you were to start a podcast today the most important thing you have to do is figure out what is your knee. Sh-sh-she what is your niche. You don't need millions of listeners. You only need a thousand true fans in fact if you could get a thousand people to pay you one hundred dollars a year you'd be well underway having success for podcast but think about your niche because if it's just in general interviewing we'll guess what that's been done and it's been done very well and you know if katie couric is doing it. They probably not gonna listen to you. So let's get down to what you really want to talk about. It should be very very specific so like a ford bronco has a new podcast outright now called bring back bronco event just about one car. That's the whole show. It's about one car or if you Think about youth to think about. Like what are you really into. How do you spend your time. Would you really wanna talk about. What are you good at. And who is gonna listen. And what are they wanna hear so a podcast about taking pictures at the beach in in the early morning that would be perfect. So so niche and grow worry. Don't worry about there. Being so many podcasts and gear just by yourself a microphone and and get going. Yeah you can also just pick up your iphone. Just pick up any phone. You have and start recording if you can't talk into your phone by yourself or thirty minutes. Maybe you're not going to be able to podcast. I mean it depends right. If you're gonna be starting it with somebody else are is really going to be an equal partnership. There's a lot of things to consider whatever you do if you wanna put out a podcast. Today you're not going to put that out for a month right because you've got to get the social media you gotta get the website you gotta get the platform the hosting platform. There's a lot to do so it's it's a long game. Let's talk about the platform and hosting. Where would you go to get your podcast online today. Boy there's so many choices jefferson. I hate to narrow.

Why Pioneering Journalist Maria Hinojosa Put Herself in the Story
"Maria I loved the Book A. So, good I told you. I was texting with you I devoured it and I want to jump in in the middle. You tell a story about writing a television script for Walter Cronkite what was the assignment? It's a juicy story. So I love 'cause nobody's asked me about this one yet short story is that I am the first Latina hired NPR. And then very quickly I'm like. This feels weird and I go and work for a Latino public radio in Spanish and San Diego and I experienced. Deep my cheese more there, and so I end up working kind of miraculously back in New York at CBS News in the Radio Department. And, I was doing fill in work the summer, and then I was asked to stay on through the end of December to produce a segment from Walter cronkite they asked me to write his end of the year commentary. And so. I was terribly nervous as a Latina journalism in the mainstream and being the first I was terrified most of the time. I write this piece and I go in I, show it to my boss Norman and Norman Light Me Norman hired me. But he saw this piece he said, Walter Cronkite is not going to read this and I was like no, he's like because it sounds like you wrote it. And I can't remember if he said and you're a little bit of an angry Latina I, don't think we talked in that way but it was almost like as he didn't have to say it he was like because it sounds like you wrote. and. I said well. Let's take it down to the FISHBOWL and have one of the evening news writer writers, read it and see what they think. Something just said. Stand up for yourself. You really hard. You actually worked on this you talk to other journalists. This shit is good. and. You're angry in this piece because every American should be angry at what is happening in the United States of America in the year nineteen, eighty seven. and. So I said, let's onto the fishbowl the people who edit the evening news with Dan Rather. We walk toward the writers who did not know me and he's again this is good. Yeah he'll read it. Yeah change this one word. and My boss had to eat his words eat pro as it were and I was like damn and so the point of the story is that as journalists of color as journalists conscience. When we are the first or one of the few in many newsrooms. We have to battle for ourselves. The way we see the world as journalists is as valid as Walter cronkite sway of seeing the world or Katie couric or Dan Rather we're journalists just like them. There are so many pivot points on your journey from intern to staff producer to on air from Spanish English. Is there one moment that stands out to you as the moment where your career to turn and where you really started to set out on your journey as a journalist? Well, look to decide basically that you're going to walk away from a steady Gig because you want to become a correspondent, you want to try to become on air that was pretty risky move and I feel like I did that in one of those moments where I was like you just have to do this. Like there are no Latinas. There are no Latina voices out there. And you have done radio, you have a voice, you know how to use it Noah. So that was a turning point. I think when CNN recruited me, that was another moment. It was very scary because I had never done television much less live television. But to answer your question, I feel like it really like. Like really came to fruition once I moved into doing now on PBS, which was long form investigative close to sixty minutes in terms of its style and production and deep investigative, and that led me to then doing documentaries and led to the front line which happened at the same time that I created my own company football media and I just WANNA shout out. The book. News for all the people which is was written by Juan Gonzalez and Joe Tories once I read that book I was like, okay. All of this suffering of being a journalist, a Latina you know woman of Color Immigrant. All of this is there is a reason why and it is because you have a responsibility to be part of this long arc. Of Responsible Journalism in the United States. You right I had heard rumblings at NPR some folks that I got too close to stories. I know all about you and your agenda one of my editors a nice middle aged white guy said to me agenda I said, what are you talking about? Maria come on you and you're Latino agenda. How did you respond in that moment? I said so does that mean that you've got a white guys agenda and he was like, no, it's not the same thing and I was like the same thing I'm able to tell you those moments because they were few and far between when I was just like ski is. Key you know like the same in Mexico is style plateau. SAMANCOR will plateau no one mass when I would just like suddenly rip something out and just be like that. But a lot of the times as you know, you're mostly just like dodging dodging you're doing a we've you're doing another we've and then sometimes you're just like a skin nope Wilma's I'm GonNa answer back. I hope that a lot of journalists read this book journalists because. You do have to be incredibly strong willed, and I would hope that they understand that this is not a job it is in fact, a mission that we're lucky enough to love. We need them.
Katie Couric Puts 2020 In Perspective
"Let's be real. Nobody has seen a year like twenty twenty in our lifetimes, and while Katie, couric has covered a ton of events over the course of her career. She agrees that this year as a whole stands as the biggest news story ever witnessed this confluence of events, not only global pandemic. You have a huge social justice movement, the likes of which we've never seen. So I. Think. It's sort of the imperfect storm of all these factors coming together and it's just I mean I think it's testing us. It's definitely a year. Nobody will soon forget and don't forget check out her podcast next question with Katie couric
Kanye West posts bizarre Twitter rant: ‘Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up’
"So Connie went on twitter tirade last night. Saying things like Chris. Stay away from his kids. He slammed Kim's playboy spread and he even said the movie. Get out is about him. Yeltsin claims that Kim was going to fly out to Wyoming with the doctor to get him locked up, so it sounds like Kim is trying to get him help, but these tweets which our now deleted did get pretty personal. How do you guys feel if you can? I mean how are you supposed to feel this entire thing is so devastating. I feel like this has been something that's been going on with Connie for a while now. Obviously, he's been pretty open about his mental illness, and the struggles that he's had with it in the past. It is very clear that he's obviously going through something. Obviously, we don't know if that means he's you know. Stop taking certain medications or whatever has gone on. On, but clearly he's in a little bit more of a manic state. I'm not a doctor so I. Don't know if that's the right terminology, but clearly clearly going there's something and as his wife and partner for so many years mother of his children. I mean I'm sure it's devastating for her I. Mean I know firsthand what it's like to deal with somebody who has mental illness and let me tell you something it is horrific. Horrific you are not dealing with a person that is a the right sound mind, so it's almost impossible to help them, and they feel like everybody is sort of attacking them in what he was tweeting about being locked up. It's like she's not trying to lock you up. She's trying to help you and get you WANNA. Pass right now to get you to your most Sane Self, so I'm sure it's dead the skating for her. What do you think? I mean if you haven't dealt with someone who has gone through mental illness, especially member. You really do not know the distance that you are willing to go for that person you know people ask questions like when is enough enough? But when this is your family member, you have go the distance and for people are forever, and when people are going through manic episodes. Is sometimes they will say things that will cut deep. They will say things that will hurt their actions Are you know pretty irrational at times when you have family members? Sometimes you just have to take a step outside of the situation and assess what's going, and sometimes you're able to realize okay. They were in the right state of mind. They were saying things that maybe they do not mean and and you're. You're willing to just ride it out with them for him. This is the father of her children. This is her husband who we know adores her, so I feel like she is going to do whatever it takes to help him and to get him better, but you guys. There is no simple solution. There is not sanction. This is a lifelong journey, so I think right now. The whole family is going through it. But also with Kim, you know she has to assess how she is feeling. Because as you are not well, then you're trying to fill someone else's cost. That is half. Empty your nothing for yourself so it also it just falls on. You know you need to assess how you are. You need to help this person, but it's going to be a journey. Be. A mother continued to be a mother to the four children. She also has to be both mom and dad right now, and I think that a lot of I mean I've gone through this personally, but you know like people with mental illness have a hard time taking medication because they do complain that it causes them to feel jake or less, creative or sort of a little bit foggy, and I think that obviously we know I've been a huge conde. Conde stand from day one. He's obviously a musical genius, and he's somebody that constantly wants to be in the zone wants to be creating wants to be putting out certain things and when he's taking stuff that makes him feel like he's not living up to that. Potential I can understand him saying well. I don't want to do that to myself anymore. But unfortunately what we saw last night with the tweeting is the effects of not taking care of himself right? Right one hundred percent I think if you look at the history of the Kardashian women and their relationships. If you look at chloe and Lamar if you look at Scott in Courtney. Even when those relationships were romantically done, they never gave up on those people we saw how chloe came to Lamar's rescue, and how Chris was behind her, and how the sisters were behind her to help Lamar get out of the spot. He's at so being someone like Kim. WHO's? WHO's a part of a family like that? WHO believes that wind? She has kids or this man. She is not going to give up on him even if she's out of this situation for herself, she is going to stay in this for kids and I. Think the most devastating part for Cam, which is also the most devastating part for me. Is that people on the Internet are egging this on and laugh about this man going through this manic episode? Nine might be saying things that cut deep and are very personal, but I think she can get over that. I think what's going to her. Is that people are sitting here in laughing at this man going through this, and that is going to be the problem,
