Replacing you. And he loathed every second of and it's a similar suit and everything it's just it couldn't he couldn't find his way through it and he'll admit that and and it's been so painful for other people i wouldn't walk in after that nut regardless of who that was because you go now i got that burden. I'm just a guy who just wants to be he. He's a good actor in just was a guy who wanted to be good in something but somebody was laying all that stuff on man. I never wanna walk into that situation.

Let's let's let's let's make it didn't have the burden of having to be compared to anybody else who you know short of You know the television version And that was kind of.

"Replace either. Guys funny awesome. Yeah and who am. I hadn't thought of it until they brought it up right. You probably thought no. I wanted to do some pretty good at it. Like to give it a and then they then. They did what they didn't you went. Oh jeez okay. What happens is everybody Stinking changes retroactively. So now. oh my god. Yeah right michael. Keaton batman actually the batman. And then they're always batmans after that. But you're in the firmament of like no you're the guy that brought it back defined what the with the action hero is. I wish more people would say. I gotta say at the time. Yeah it was absolutely stupid and michael keaton. Tim burton prove me absolutely wrong. But no one says that. No one's going to say that. I know and you know it's interesting because i i'm talking about because i went ended the flash. The and i almost have more of an appreciate well. I do have more of an appreciation of because it's become such a call -tural thing and then let's be honest. You have to add the corporate element to it. They just just the massive monetary part of all that not all the marbles and all the stuff you rant it's a franchise dizin. Yeah there's it's like exxon mobil deciding where to put an oil rig. Yeah really they. It's not as simple as we're gonna make in new hope batman and we're gonna make a new flash or we have a new idea for superman people are saying that this is billions of dollars billions upon billions. And so therefore you look at it and go. Okay is so much a thing that i have to not that happened yesterday. Slowly kinda come around. And i went. Yeah okay and otley. I appreciate more in some weird way i go. Wow this is really a thing. I mean not that. I didn't think it was. I knew it was risking. I knew we could failed terribly. And i was glad at work. I knew tim was a pioneer in this snub. But now that i do like how this is kind extraordinary that it is such a thing culturally that i now look at it differently in an in an odd way now. Not with more respect. Just take it a little more seriously. I think okay well it is. This is big. And i think pretty good at it. So don't be jerk. Don't don't just kind of not blow it off. Don't don't not take it serious. I of all. I don't know how to not take things too seriously. Sometimes but i look at it. Oddly differently now and and i. It's kind of hard to explain it. So when i went to do it. I really in some ways enjoyed it more because i kind of had nother perspective on it. Once you go to work you just show up. And what's the seen. How what do you think. When want to do here bob lush. Should i come in like that. Whatever you do all that. But i didn't expect that really not i expected to go. Yeah whatever. I'm just going to pick up chick i 'cause kind of incapable too afraid that all screw things up. If i the only reason i phone things in. I'm just afraid i'll screw up too much. I i think the time has to go by. I just now made my peace with my early career in. It's taken years and years and years to look back and go. Okay yeah you were targeting yet. Worked out well Good yeah i couldn't. I'd had no access to any of that in the nineties or even the early two thousands. I just couldn't access it but could be an irish thing too. Though by the way yeah could be thing like ambient. You're not so hot yachats. Oh god yeah yeah. Oh yeah oh definitely. Don't go talking about yourself too much. Yeah and you do it yourself. Yeah the voices in you saying oh pretty fancy Yeah so we're yeah.

And then you would never forget it and you would lose my number would tell you get this weird thing. We michael keaton love that you know. It's so funny is that you talked earlier about your arc and it really fascinates me because i don't know where you got the moxie to us. We're gonna talk about old language with balls. But you started out you more sophisticated. Likely exactly we start out and you establish yourself as comic actor and then and people don't know this now because your your role your performance was so i i chronic that at the time i remember when they said well we got a new guy is gonna play. The new batman is my key and people acted as if they adjust made a dog president. Yeah they acted like not that they had anything against you. They just saw this is no. He can't be. This is impossible. It's a complete impossibility. And now in a way. And i don't mean just in a way but you and working with tim burton you guys reimagined. What a superhero could be. And that's what the superheroes have been for the last three years. I've crazy but at the time man. Tim i mean we were all out on olympic. But you're right at that time when that happened in you have to credit him for tim. We went yeah. I don't know what do you think i said. Yeah i get it. What do you think. I think he's this guy. Don't you long discussion about who that guy release which was based on on on the dark night series that the changed everything and so at the time. I just remember thinking wait. I'm not even offended. Like what do you mean it was more of i. I can't believe people think about this. That much. honestly right what what would it matter anyway. Who's sitting around thinking about that. And then then. I sort of think you mean the fans who were up in arms about. How can this. Comic actor the play batman yes serious dark knight yeah And i remember at the time there being this huge disconnect with people and i live through something like that when i replace david letterman. Oh man i had the feeling of your response was. I didn't think people cared that much. I knew people cared. And i kind of agreed with them. My response was yeah. I don't think i should.

"Of shows that used to be yes. Thanks wardrobe by. Botany five hundred. And i'd always think i've gotta get a suit from botany five such a great observation because you're right that's right. That was considered. Botany five hundred sophisticated and clue and i never you know what that was but i just knew that but in the end of shows used to be very few credits and there used to be written by this is the person who played the neighbor and then it would say wardrobe for mr van. Die or for whatever show. You're watching and it would say you know. Remember botany five hundred always coming up and thinking i actually put it into a simpson's episode once that's i showed the end of a i wrote a simpsons script and at the end there's a little thing reports it says it says Wardrobe think by. Botany five hundred and i remember one of the writers at the simpsons. Who who's my boss at the time lewin like. Yeah putney five hundred total. That's honestly the then. We relate.

You should've said something i remember. I know my son said what was that. All about. And i said does michael keaton. Because he he felt that he felt it and Totally and and he was he was past tense. A big fan. But he's affected by in terms of schooling everything. I'm sure he probably is grades. Dropped off after an. They've opened his school up. He's allowed to go back. He never went back and it was all because he got dissed by michael. Keaton in cove intense situation. So now you know what it's like to be me. I know it is very much.

And sometimes if i loathe the guest i really go on and on. Have you ever noticed that. Oh yeah remember. We had joe the plumber on and you just went for fifty minutes. Yeah and i just read off the periodic table of elements and time. We had the my pillow guy on. And i didn't wanna talk to him and i thought it was a bad booking because he's clearly insane idea that but he also remember how surprising it was. The my pillow guy was a great guest. He was faster and politically in line and then he told the best stories about his times. It see how used to. I didn't know he built his own boats and and took them out into the north atlantic. Then that fight. He had with the sea serpent. What a fantastic guests. So that was on me. I regret and no free pillows. Can you believe that shit. They're filled with as best as i suspected to be.

They're weeks old and they're wearing tiny little trousers with suspenders and they have comb overs and they look like they're sitting in an old folks and they're pissed about this new rock and roll music and i was howling and i was texting back and forth with their. I try not to call sonal. Because i'm always afraid that mitya's twins so what's maybe one of them just got to sleep or the other one just got to sleep or are they both just got to sleep and then the phone rings and it's me saying where's my coffee. She's busy taking care of all those grandparents that are taking care of the house. I didn't know that in their culture. You can have sixty grand. That's something that's something that can only happen if you're armenian. But she has sixty armenian grandparents and she has not held the child's either of the children herself yet yeah. Her family multiplies the opposite. Way to triples. They're like yeah. I remember that episode. Where kirk opens up a storage bin. Yea i'm sixty five armenian grandparents come falling out the trouble with armenian but anyway but yeah by this point. If she was on the podcast she would have probably ruled. Her is sonar Her horizon so forcefully. You can hear it on a podcast. Yeah here. I have to edit it out. You can actually hear the ocular jelly moving rapidly in its orbit's had access to the phrase ocular jelly. I don't think any human is unlocked that phrase before so that's really impressive. Ocular jelly so hard in the back of the head. He ocular jelly evacuated it space. Here's another word that i'm fascinated with another phrase yeah dynamic ad insertion. Oh you're learning about podcasting. yeah. I don't know anything about podcasting and then the other day And i'm very proud of the fact. That i i really am just a chip. They put in a spacecraft. But i'm inside going. Who and you are furiously. You're an expert at these things really. So you're you're you and your your team are expertly keeping us in orbit I think it was adam. Saks was talking. He said well yes. And of course now now that we have dynamic ad insertion and i said what and i guess. That's the way that you guys put. Ads into a podcast. I don't have anything to do with it. I think it's just as ridiculous..

"Of all of these brides. That are just so on hammond and need his money so they are just a rabbit documentary. That recommended that we watched that had been the righted by mcdonagh's watching all these films and particularly the dream sequence of sherlock and that china sacred spain seven chances it made me think up began which makes complete sense that he'd big directing this. I mean. obviously. He's a walking encyclopedia cinema. Anyway but the whole scruple set up at the end of. What's up doc. That chase sequence. This know why he wasn't thinking of buster keaton up. Think he'd be watching it. Be thinking of that rather than a foam. What bullish or something like that is it was. It was comedic possibilities of the choice rather than the action possibilities of the chase. So let's talk about the general. Isn't that a lot of films that are close to perfect but this one is very very close to perfect. It's a little questionable these days. That buster is fighting for the south but if we can look past that i think we find a pretty good film here. This whole thing. He wants to join. The army wants to be part of the confederate army and his girl here her father and her brother they immediately run out to join up with the army and once they declare war on the north and i love that he doesn't immediately go running out but then he wants to be front of the line and just all of the ways that he goes about becoming front of the line and that it gets refused and all the ways that he tries to get back into the line and try to pass himself off as something that he's not so that he can get to be part of the army again. This is one of those kind of mistaken identity kind of things where he is being refused entrance into the army. Because he's an engineer and he's more valuable as an engineer than as part of the army and i love this whole thing of how how much he loves his girl yes but he loves his train. I think even more because of that amazing picture that he gives to her of him in front of his end. I love it just like in one way. Committee said that the house was a character of his. This gripe set up shop months again. What i'm talking about framing this beautiful moment where she confronts him Why didn't you enlist in the army. We get shame on the left or on the right the train behind him says his to gripe lobs the trains not gonna let him down but the human love of his life is about to let him dance a anyway namie until you've got that uniform on and i just sort of interesting because as someone who wasn't born didn't drop in america i. I hadn't watched the kim been series. I didn't know a hell of a lot. The civil war is always occur. What's a confederacy of that. I had my guesses. And i read something that said that this is actually based on a true story that was trying to staffed and think the the northern soldiers food kept to the triumph taking beckon executed in the south but the person who wrote the his history book back at the time about this incident had written about it from the northern his perspective and busta. Keaton had said that he found this. And this is something shrew me. He said he'd watch d w griffith's both of a nation and he was quoted as saying something like the new is candy Villains but the southern is never kane and he was inspired by birth of a nation. Now i haven't seen it but read about it. I've heard about it and it just sort of seems bizarre man. Apparently like you know he..

"Caning his way over to his record player where he listens to our podcast. Who smashing wax cylinder with a giants. Anyway so the general was rated by the american film institute among the twenty greatest movies ever made. Yeah that being said. The american film institute says the greatest movie ever made is citizen kane terrible. It's on zero babies in that one. So i could see why i m whatever that's nice citizen kane. That's a movie that tries to make you feel bad when rich people feel sad. It's not getting a action on twenty twenty saying that's not about it's it's like it had new techniques exactly that's from a technical perspective put it said it it absolutely does not use those techniques and make a good movie around it right listed with those techniques. Sure they just didn't do it at the same time. Nine new techniques share dead and they've they've managed to leave that up okay but so at the time of its release. The general wasn't exactly hailed as the masterpiece that we now recognize it to be First of all the movie takes place during the civil war and buster's heroic characters fighting for the south now. He said that that was because otherwise he'd be picking on the loser but so what totally allowed when the losers are fucking lewis right. I'm still with difficult. That was not the problem at the time though. The big issue in nineteen twenty six was that it was just too heavy for comedy and also it made jokes about soldiers dying now. Those gags are nowhere near problematic by today sensibilities but at the time. It was very much taboo. Come on dead. Confederate bodies were landing on sheets. Stage i mean come on now good all right so the general was also crazy expensive to film the movies most famous symbols of wooden bridge collapsing under the weight of a train and the israel trained for that scene. They didn't use a minister. There's people moving around in the foreground in every mazing. what's more it was a period piece. So they used this old ass train so they ended. They built an entire bridge just so they could blow up an anti catrine but that was the most expensive aspects of the movie. Buster insisted on using the type of train that they would have back in the eighteen sixties. Which meant that. His train was chucking out burning embers. The whole was happening right so so old. Trains were just throwing hot chick into for all the time. They ran on wood and shit forests. Weren't those trains go so well. They knew how to handle it a little better back in the day. Not so much here. Because one of those embers caught the the forest that they were in on fire and his production company up on the hook for the putting that shit out. Bill yeah well. Oregon needs to swiffer up those leaves. That's mostly and the real unanswered question is what gender was the reveal time. United artists was distributing his movies and after the generals middling box office return. They put buster on a leash so they gave him a fulltime production manager who monitored as expenses. Danny was furious when he took a look at the. First watt. no expense line item for forest fires. This whole Yeah well that's the thing that they vetoed most of more outlandish ideas and we would make two more features with you. A which in my opinion actually are his worst and his best films but by all accounts he hated making him and he felt creatively stifled by as new policies at the same time. Mgm was offering a fucking scrooge mcduck vault signed a deal with them so in nineteen twenty eight. He signed with metro-goldwyn-meyer a decision. He would later call the worst one of his life. Yeah you can't swim in coins. It just hurts. i've been there. I can't dive in so another decision but people who've tried that we're like okay. How a four way not would so but another decision that competed for worst of his life was his first wife. Buster married natalie talmadge in nineteen twenty one just as his career was starting to take off at natalie's family was damn near hollywood royalty. Her sister's norman. Constants were both silent erase stars and honestly. It's obvious why. I challenge anyone alive to watch. Dwi griffith's intolerance without falling in love with constant talmadge. I also challenged anybody to sit through that three hour. Self pitying pieces shit all but but that's beside the point is the marriage wasn't a happy one buster was cheating on her for pretty much the use sound and i do as you and she reportedly got back and by spending about one third of his salary per month on her words. Wrong natty are buckle. Ask he's just like oh not sure why my marriages failing anyway you want to suck my dick or what. Hey look of course. It's an open bar. It's a wedding my mother-in-law you really have a actually real close yeah professionally people professionally so by nineteen twenty six buster and his wife were sleeping in separate bedrooms because his bedroom was already full no room at the end the wrong with separate more comfortable have your own might be all right so but at the same time that is personalized apart. Critics are panning his latest bill. Despite it being legitimately one of the greatest movies ever made in fact if you go by af is list. It was the greatest movie ever made at the time because the other seventeen rank above. It hasn't been made yet so i decided to try his head. Alcoholism is off the stage. Like ed norton data point. This is fun during this so okay so it was at this point that he did a couple of most dangerous and most famous stunts made a career out of hurting himself. Of course it up to including breaking his neck during a scene in junior that would make the final cut. Its in the movie you can watch and break his neck. But if you've only ever seen buster keaton once in your life. The clip you will have seen is his most famous and most dangerous stunt comes from the hurricane. Seen in steamboat built junior is the classic gag out monumental scale where he runs out of the house and then the facade of a two story house falls away up buddy emerges unscathed. 'cause he's standing exactly where the open attic window is now. This is a stunt with the way that they did it at the time where he misses his mark by more than six inches in any direction. He has like a couple of seconds to run to it. He would get crushed he would almost certainly die causes so later on an interviews. They'd ask hey. Were you scared when you did this. And he would say i was blackout drunk grabbed..

"House could pull the chain a couple of seconds later and then all four walls was had to like bossed out the fuck and the blueprints in the days before the whoopie wealth is pretty good. But i was hoping he'd make a trap door open in the ceiling of the house. And you'd get shit. Dropped on your head at that magical. You'd be like wh what's going on. Yeah so busters career as an entertainer began at the age of three and that is not one of the according to legend thing. That's a for real thing. His parents were vaudeville. Comedians that did a slapstick act so as soon as he was big enough to fall over they incorporated him into the show. And you know how slapstick isn't funny. When it's a three-year-old. I do not know that neither did eight hundred ninety eight. So the crux of the act is that his parents would put little handles on buster with so little suitcase outfits not with the you pick them up by the handelman chuck him off stage into a sheet more or less harmless objectively funny than a now switch. They added handles. They were like okay. We're not pretty good now. But what about how we get a little more torque if we had a handle also. This is objectively better than american. Handles your luggage to all right. So you may be thinking to yourself who the buck wants to watch a kid get tossed dangerously around and nocco prince shit keith. It's exactly yeah. I wrote it before. He made that confession but it turns out nobody was he and everyone else alive. Make america great again so the actually the abuse that his parents were willing to put him through became the chief selling point for their act pretty soon his parents were feeling buster as the little boy who can't be damned no itself as the roughest act that was ever in the history of the state. Pornhub gonna say that's like a glory hole disclaim with long and short of it. So i wrote that before he medical rise short of it though is that buster grew up knowing how to take a fall. It turned out that was going to help him out both professionally. And personally yeah. Join us for child abuse the musical or is it would later be called the mickey mouse club. Show choir practice for thing. Hashtag freebritney like that joe ping for you thank you. That essay is in our graveyard. If you're thinking to yourself hold on wooden like that lead to allegations of child abuse and arrested the answer to that one's yes from time to time it did but since buster could always show the cops. It wasn't actually hurt very often. They kept letting his dad do it. Of course the physical abuse wasn't the only problem with lifestyle. There was also the issue of buster. Not going to school which turned out. Legal no. Not if you could pretend it's virtual right no. I didn't yeah and figured that out yet eventually. The state of new york forced him to go to school. Though biolo- kelsey just attended for like part of a day whenever they'd make a fuss about it as a result he didn't learn to read and write into lateness. Childhood of course to be fair the falling down practice would prove much more important to his career and not learning to read or write definitely helped move him towards the. I'll probably be fine career path thing. Okay but i think after making his early fame falling down a flight of stairs perhaps reading and writing. We're always going to be like aspirational goal. So by the time he was eighteen. Buster was a rising star in the vaudeville world. But that meant that pretty soon. The sun was upstaging. The father who was surprise surprise a violent drunk compa now eventually decided that his dad's alcoholism was holding it back so the age of twenty one buster and his mother moved to new york from wherever the hell they were at that point and they revamped their act to work without us. See people this is why you don't bring your work home with you. He's like mom. I'm gonna need you to in an alcoholic rage. Throw me into toss me. He's like do seem motivated by not funny. Cancel going through gone too far all right. So after a brief and uneventful stint in world war one. Well excuse me. An eventful stint in world war. That says this is a guy who grew up being thrown around a stage by nine. He's in the trenches bombs man. He's gotta go over the wall. They just grabbed the handle guys mustard gas. I need to. I need to know handle very good. Very good all right honey. The poor buster winds up meeting a man who is going to change his life year is nineteen. Seventeen and roscoe fatty arbuckle was one of the biggest names medium of fix on the there. He was also one of the biggest people in that burgeoning medium to thirteen pounds at birth. That's debut twice the average and didn't get thinner as he got older but despite his size he was a remarkably agile guy and it made him really popular. I involved ville and then as one of hollywood's first superstars now. Eventually fatty arbuckle would go on to be accused of rape and manslaughter. He'd fuck up a whole citation needed episode and he would become industry poison and i should point out that every history i've ever read seems pretty sure he wasn't guilty. But all the histories. I've read were also written. Pre me too so we don't know what happened. What we do know is that fatty was ultimately acquitted. Along with a prodigious apology by the jury for all the shit. He went through along the way so the feeling at the time that it was a false accusation. We have a pretty good idea of what happened. Though i would say okay but but given what we know about hollywood like. I don't know if that tells us if we if we buried that essay in a pet cemetery would it come back as a good version of itself. You think. Jon benet not pet cemetery. I wrote well before all of that in nineteen. Seventeen fatty was a meal ticket. For buster at the time that they met our buckle was under contract with joseph m schenck who is one of the most influential producers in the early film industry and because of their shared past in vaudeville the first time. Buster and fatty fatty was like man. You wanna do this scene with me in this filmmaking. And they did and it's goddamn hilarious. It's more or less improvised. And it's this bit. Where busters by molasses from fatty. You can find it on youtube. The movie is called butcher boy. busters for three and a half minutes in in that three and a half minutes. You can immediately tell the dispute as a star who absolutely understands the medium and also butcher boy the silent film. Absolutely not to be confused with the nineteen ninety-seven film of the same name about an abused young boy with an alcoholic. Father totally finding confused. Yeah batty now. I mean it's depressing to now in. All buster would go on to appear and fourteen of our buckle shorts and the two became close friends but their professional collaboration ended in nineteen twenty one which is when the aforementioned rape accusation. Broken the news now at that point buster was outta comedy partner and fads boss was out of comedy star so shake gave busters own production unit buster keaton productions and set them to work. This would set off one of the most exceptional decades into career of any director in the history of film. Okay.

"I would just be like a so in this. You get corncob for this part of it. What's that when she looked when she when she was like. What are you doing on the boat. And i'm like just fucking getting just virgin chatted. Or whatever. The i'm just. I'm just getting insult by this reporter or this book person. I don't know she needed her. You should get it she.

About like benef- michael keaton's batman being the main batman. So we had a tweet. That went up. Probably shouldn't use. The word confirmed whatever confirmed michael. Keaton will be the main batman within the dc replacing affleck It was a little misleading. Probe it was. I'll i'll say fifty percent our fault. It was pretty fucking vague. Pretty fucking vague.

Fake news Handled fucking no man. But i still think. There's i think there's a little truth to this like i think keaton will probably end up being the we liked bat flake. Actually that was the other thing. Other people thought that we were like hating on. Ben affleck batman. We've all kind of said. We like banana. Ben affleck batman.

The Streaming Era Has Finally Arrived
"Well if you don't have a big tv now. I think it's time to go get one 'cause you're gonna be spending even more time in front of the tv in twenty twenty one. We're still in the pandemic who knows if it will ever end in everything's going to streaming as you've heard me talk about a lot of first run films going to streaming from warner brothers. They're putting seventeen films on. Hbo max next year now disney has a hundred new projects eighty of them are going to streaming a new version of pinocchio with tom. Hanks and peter pan with jude law. Skipping theaters going straight to disney plus. There's ten new star wars tv series. I mean there's so much out there. A lot of filmmakers don't like theater owners or even more upset but what's going on well. The studio's really always wanted a way to release their films. One to one bypassing the middle person and they finally found it with a pandemic warner says. This is a short one. Time fixed due to the pandemic but one analyst. I spoke to peter. Chatty doesn't see things changing in two thousand twenty two quote. The reality is the genius out of the bottle. And it's not going back. He told me so. People have been going to movies in theaters since the days of chaplin and keaton so why the media companies want them moving the streaming very simple recurring revenue monthly subscriptions really add up. Let's take a film like the original wonder woman shot in two thousand seventeen. It grossed eight hundred and twenty one million dollars at the box office. Subtract the production. The marketing costs and the split with theaters in the studio was left with a profit of about two hundred and fifty million dollars according to deadline so. Hbo max debuted in may fifteen dollars. Monthly currently has just over twelve million subscribers. So what would happen. If hbo were able to bring in say ten million new subscribers to see wonder woman nineteen eighty-four the new film and most of them stuck around. I'm not great at math. But i can tell you that works out to one hundred and fifty million dollars. That's less than the theatrical box office prophets but we're looking at just one month in two months studio. C three hundred million and four fifty and six hundred and on and on it goes but perhaps ten million subscribers is way too generous. The reality is it will be way way less. Maybe a million. Maybe half a million. Maybe two million. The studio won't come close to making streaming. What would have in a huge theatrical release but another analysts rich greenfield told variety that the studio will make less money for the greater good of building. Hbo max this is putting the long term future of the company ahead of prophets. Disney has already hiked the price by a dollar to disney plus effective in march. Two

'The West Wing' enlists big names for its When We All Vote reunion special
"Thanks. I'm a big fan of Aaron Sorkin and tell us why This is a good time for me in television, because I like him so much. He absolutely if you didn't watch it yesterday, a cz, always with streaming. You can watch it at your leisure. But yesterday they dropped on HBO, Max. Ah, Special reunion of the West Wing cast is probably his most legendary TV show The West Wing and gathered almost everybody from the cast for Martin Sheen and Allison Janney and Rob Lowe and so forth. To recreate an episode from one of the early seasons as a theatrical staged event in an empty theater, But they filmed it like it was a play and it was in that shifted from scene to scene and it was really cleverly done, but also just reminded you how Wonderful that Siri's wass and how inspirational it was, even though it was about politics. So if the dueling if the dueling town halls and so you may be this would've last night, but it's still out there, but even more so today, Netflix drops another Aaron Sorkin project. Which he wrote and directed. It's called the Trial of the Chicago Seven, and it goes back to the sixties, when those counterculture figures Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale and others were put on trial for inciting the riots that disrupted the 1968 Democratic convention. It was a big media circus, and this film looks like it's got it all and including a terrific cast, including two Emmy winners from this season. Jeremy strong from succession and one of the stars of watchman job doing the team. They're playing two of the defendants. You also have frankly, Angela's The judge and Michael Keaton's in there. Sasha Baron Cohen's in there. Doing dramatic bit, and it just sounds like again. Aaron Sorkin is knows his way around a courtroom. If you remember his very first big hit was a few good men. So if you like Aaron Sorkin style you've got two choices was like a double whammy of Aaron Sorkin this week. Now? Yeah, I once interviewed Jerry Rubin, a za journalism student at Penn State, and he was in the Rolfing, which is when you beat yourself up physical. Just one strange cat, man. I got to say yes.

Asked me do you ever want kids and I always say the same thing in my head. But I, I never say it out loud because I was talking today about that. Never let people know this because I think it'll drive no one will understand it but I always ask If I WANNA have kids. Hey, russ do you do you ever think about you? WanNa have kids well I.

That's a lot maybe but I'm afraid of people would just glaze over you know Nancy Meyer movie it sound in buying Nancy Meyers. She wrote and directed at is just like that one with that's just like with you and McGregor, and then we have ourselves Cameron Diaz but it was just all about the rental house they go to England it was Jude Law Jude Law and Cameron Diaz and Kate winslet and Jack Black.

Kid-Friendly TV Show Recommendations
"I think it's important to clarify. We're doing these recommendations are for very little kids and everything that we are talking about all of the recommendations on this episode our TV and I think there are parents of very young children and people who give advice to parents have very young children who tend to obsess over screen time and how much screen time a toddler should have look. These are unusual times and the first thing that I want to say before I even start doling out recommendations is just to remember that you're doing the best you can. You're doing fine if you need to put your toddler in front of a TV or a tablet and that is what needs to happen for you to stay sane for you to get your work done then so be it. Your kid is going to be fine. Your kid has you. That's what's important wanted to get that out there. I will also go so far. As to say as a person who obsessed about this didn't obsess about it goes back and forth the important part of the best you can is the you can part so if you are stuck on the fact well. The best is only two hours. It's the best that you can do. Given your circumstances your doing great exactly so. My first recommendation is something that my parents put in front of me. When I was very small child back in the seventies which has been fairly recently rebooted for new generations the electric company. The Electric Company is a educational children's program in the seventies it featured such wonderful luminaries as Rita Moreno. It has an extraordinarily charming kids show. That is really focused on education. But does it in such a warm and inviting and pleasant way so the original seventies electric company you can stream it via Amazon? It does cost money. You can find pretty lengthy excerpts of it on Youtube floating around and you know a lot of us who grew up in the seventies. We'll have you know like individual favorite moments from the electric company. I just remember that that was something that my parents really love to have on and around because though it was geared very very much too little kids and they say online. They say that it's geared toward five to nine but I think you can really go younger than that. My parents didn't go nuts watching it now. They recently rebooted the electric company from two thousand nine to twenty eleven. Those three seasons you can stream for free at PBS DOT ORG and As an incentive for parents who listen to this show and have not checked out the rebooted electric company one of the CAST members is William Jackson Harper. Who Played Chidi on the good place incentive to watch the new electric company Occasional guest spots and occasional music composition from one Lin. Manuel Miranda. I'LL AL. Obviously we could go back and forth. Comparing the quality of the two there is no way to compare something. You were nostalgic for as a child with something that is trying to duplicate that magic but that is a marvelous piece of educational programming. That is still entertaining. And that is right up there with stuff like Mister Rogers neighborhood and sesame street and all sorts of wonderful stuff that you can find on PBS kids. Electric Company is just a gorgeous piece of that puzzle. And I don't think it gets as much recognition as it should get especially compared to some of those other classic pieces of programming love it. Excellent Pack Loved Electric Company Berry. What is your first recommendation? We in our family when my oldest was younger and I was pregnant with my second son. It was really imperative for me to be sitting down lying down pretending that I didn't have a child for like two or three hours a day but I also had already watched so much Daniel Tiger which is wonderful and other. Pbs Kids thing. That probably taught me a lot about parenting but I wanted something that I also really liked from the creators of Wallace and GROMIT. Shaun the sheep which I have so many I mean I literally have photographs of both my husband and my then three year old watching. Shaun the sheep and both laughing at exactly the same amount because it is genuinely funny. It is the first thing that I think our family all liked the same amount where we really all were engaged in it in the same way. I you know you're not pretending to love you know Mom Tiger or whatever you're not pretending to be like Mom Tiger. I'm really actually mom. Tigers really haunted me over the years but I will say that Shaun. The sheep is both adorable in terms of its slapsticky laps. But it also looks gorgeous. So if you're not familiar with Wallace and gromit they created these these beautiful claymation sort of handmade aesthetic from our animations and Wallace and gromit. I also highly recommend but it's more of a sophisticated storyline. What's Great About Shaun? The sheep is that they are sort of snack. -able basically it is a brilliant sheep named Sean and the adventures of him and his farmer and his friends and it is genuinely funny. They're all of these little references. That are incredibly sophisticated without going over the head of your little ones. There's a kind of buster Keaton ask quality to it and I can watch them all the time. I really truly do not get sick of Shaun the sheep and my kids who are now as we said six nine still really love them. It's about that and maybe the British bake off are the only things that the entire family can agree on. If you've missed out on it please go back and watch it and you may find yourself watching it even without your children and where we find it. You can find it in a myriad of places. It is on Amazon prime. It is on Netflix. The Shaun the sheep extended universe of both movies and also the Wallace and gromit from the same animation studio are in many streaming places so if you just search Shaun the sheep you will find a gorgeous claymation that will make you. Giggle is a great pick and man. My kids now are nine thousand nine hundred sixteen and at no point in their lives. Has there been more than like a small handful of things that everyone in the family can enjoy at the same level at the exact same time so when you find one of those the love that you experience as a parent for that piece of entertainment is intense. I feel you on this one in a big way. Very very nice excellent. Pick Berry Hartman Steven. You'RE GONNA give us your second pick and This is not surprise. Me Buddy well. This one is specific to one of my kids particularly my older kid my son. Jona when he was little he obsessed over a cartoon that I watched as a kid called the wacky races and the wacky races were a very short lived. Hanna barbera cartoon aired in late. Nineteen sixty eight and a little bit in early sixty nine and then has kind of lived on in reruns. There's a DVD set that has like the complete collection of the wacky races. Hanna barbera cartoons are pretty primitive. You're talking about children's TV in the late sixties. You have some kind of squeaky gender stuff. There's like one female racer penelope pitstop. Who's like more concerned with her makeup than with racing? It has that name is amazing. Insert pitstop into my middle name. Very pitstop hardiman stuff hardiman The thing is though there's something about the way. This particular cartoon was structured where each episode of the show all of these goofy characters. They were the same characters. The plot couldn't be simpler. They're racing and at the end of each episode. One of the racers wins. There's a bad guy racer named Dick Dastardly. And his side kick Mutley. Who has that famous? Little wheezy laugh and my son who was obsessed with numbers kind of obsessed a certain amount of scorekeeping managed to latch into it. Not only as a piece of like fun cartoony entertainment but kind of latched onto it as like a statistician almost and really got obsessed with it. Even though there were only seventeen episodes he just watched them over and over and over again. Now the wacky races have existed in a couple of different forms. There's a wacky racist game for the we. The kids also played. This is also like electric company is one that got rebooted and it got rebooted a few years ago and once again if you're obsessed with the nineteen sixty eight version you're gonNA watch the version from twenty seventeen or two thousand eighteen and roll your eyes because it's not the exact entertainment that you grew up with but you look at the voice cast on this rebooted wacky races. It's Tom Kenny WHO's TV. Spongebob Jill Talley who's also voiced from. Spongebob she's also from Mister. Show like Tom. Kenny and Billy West. Who was stimpy. He was fry in Futurama. You have some really lovable voice. Cast working with this show. So lucky races isn't necessarily the top of very many people's list as far as like high quality children's programming but it was really important in my house and really had this nice kind of cross generational appeal where I got to feel nostalgia watching it and my kids hooked into it in ways that even I never did
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment
"Since the pandemic hit air travel in the. Us is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become a necessary. Many of you are asking what impact all this is having on the environment. So Lauren summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lorne yes so as you might expect. It is having effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen. And this is all over not just a US right. I mean so. Scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions For this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or World War Two But here's the thing that is about the level scientists save. The world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out you know shutting down. The economy is not the way to kind of reach. Those long-term emission cuts right right. These bigger and missions changes like switch to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. This is the most beautiful spring filled with crystal clear low humidity days here in. North Carolina is having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather brought about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather here. I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities it's gotten cleaner you know. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down. Forty fifty percents. Planes are not flying either. So that's actually helped improve local air quality But it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and you know trucks are still on the roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. Right I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the well. What are they trying to understand? Exactly yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities you know. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that you know this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. Don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic environmental damage? Here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increase fiction styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible? Negative effects on the environment from Corona virus. That's a good point. All these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seeing masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. I think the pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic waste For Example California. Just put a sixty day pause on its plastic bag ban and that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure and are groups. You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight. Thanks
The Most Rewatchable Films Off All Time!
"I asked all of you to pick five of your most reliable movies even as I'm here now. I'm thinking of other movies that I would have put on my list to Adam do you want to kick us off with one of yours absolutely? My number five is more of a movie. Batman begins and for me. That's because it has a four x structure James Unconventional. It basically created the modern superhero movie. It was the one that I think we all wanted and they finally figured out how to make it. And there's really no downtime. There's a little bit once once. The Second Act ends Bruce's coming back from being a Ninja. There's a little bit of time but even then it just keeps going well. I think that's part of it too. It feels like the movies constantly restarting like. It doesn't lose the momentum that you got from the last thing. But if almost feels like buster scruggs like it's like and now a news story in this world you love except that it it still builds on the stakes of the previous one. So yeah you have the beginning and you have what you have him going going here. It's Ninja Studies. But then flashback of him as a kid. Yeah and then but then it goes then it goes all right now. He's back in Gothenburg. There's more to this than just him being Ninja. It's him in Gotha somewhere between forty five minutes. An hour between forty five minutes in an hour until he becomes Batman Which is the that is. The best way of doing every other version has been high and Michael Keaton. I'll be Batman today. I hope you enjoy the film kids and then it just there. It's interesting that you liked that because I feel like mostly my gripe with a lot of Origin movies is. Oh you're it's the wait to get to that point and you're like just have them be it already. I think is Batman begins it so well and it had not been done before other than you got taste of like in the animated series and. I think it was like fracturing. This is on the tip of everyone's talking about if you if you just did a few things man and then they'd knocked it out of the park and it was. It's so damn good. I think that that's like probably the one Batman movie other than the dark night but dark knight even a watch. Jerry the Was He the joker parts. But like Batman begins. I love from beginning to end. See I know. I've definitely seen dark knight more than I've Seen Batman begins. I saw dark knight three times in the theater rich but I understand the news. Twelve years ago cheaper. I understand the difference that you're expanding because they think dark knight is one coherent story. That is just snowballing. Whereas Batman begins is like like you know these restarts again and again and it's way easier to be like I'm just GonNa Throw Him Batman begins and watch it. Yeah and infielder and tear to your point at least taking awhile. I think probably because audiences were ready for this. It's more satisfying when you get to Batman instead of just getting right away like you learned to appreciate it like you go. Oh this journey because remember. There's a guy who worked at the time he's like why has Bam Entry Ninjas stupid as a 'cause he trains jerk compelling to watch as well a lot Lindsey one of the movies on your list. I actually knew this was one. Eight year your. He's talked about buying definitely easy to put a Christmas movie on like a Rewatch ables list of because you have the opportunity every year to have those feelings and this is my number one holiday. Christmas rewatch -able movie. I watch it every year. I made you guys all watch it and put it. I bought it on Amazon Prime. Tell me lousy with the movie watcher itself. Oh thank you you never said the movement. Sorry I have eyeballs. Oh a lot of lead up and then you're GONNA build fit. I thought it was building to James. Caan you're a big fan of and the actor who played the kid overall favorite movies. Now I love it so much. Because it's it's that feel-good movie I mean it's a holiday movie so that's like Bilton but it's just really funny Yeah Yeah it's a great holiday comedy. I I remember walking away from this movie and being like I like the two thirds of it and it's charming guy. That's and that's why we're lucky that we have a will. Ferrell holiday movie. That isn't Daddy's home. Two good that we have this they were GONNA call that. Daddy's homer Yeah L. Flake. I think you hit the nail on the head with Chris Movies They. They need to be engineered for that. Yeah because that's the sign of a good lasting. Chris movie like home alone. I've seen more times than I can say to. The it's Christmas story marathon. I was GONNA say as long as it's better than a Christmas story and kids have to grow up watching that anymore. Oh God yeah. So here's the I think the interesting thing about a Christmas movie is that it should be about more than just. Christmas is like hard about Christmas. But it's about way more than just Christmas. Yeah like family. You kinda reunited so it's it's a from a different time when you could. You could mock little people. Yeah well That man went on to be tearing Lancaster. And what have you done with your life me not a lot not a lot. James. You hit the nail on the head with twenty years. I've seen this movie a billion fucking times gladiator. Yeah Wow yeah well. It's because there are lots of obviously we could see the movie. Certain people were putting in and stuff like that but I was like. I was like well action movies. Sometimes there's an action movie that you can watch and of course there's dumb ones like you can put any dumb silly action. Movie that's digestible on there. But gladiators like an epic and I couldn't imagine watching an epic scale movie historical epic type movie like this over and over again but gladiator. I have like I remember. I was in a Latin class in high school and the teacher didn't care at all about teaching and would be like We're GONNA watch gladiator. Nice it's like we're gonNA teach you about gladiator classes and long enough to watch all gladiator. Come back the next time says. When do we stop and then you go? I think it was what he was fighting the goals. Which is like the first fifteen minutes of the movie go? Okay you'd start there wouldn't finish and then you'd you'd end up watching gladiator again and again. I watch gladiator in two different classes in high school. That's pretty good But yeah it's just like I just think it's so digestible when you think about some of the other movies in this genre it's like exodus gods and kings and like like these big scale historical drama pieces and stuff just didn't none of them. None of them are is fun is gladiator is in my opinion. It's a dense movie. It's also covers a lot of ground here. there's not a lot of misunderstandings two and half hours pilates two and a half hours but like kind of like we're saying about some of those other movies it like has several start. It's like okay. Well there's the beginning part of the movie Where he's he's soldier but then there's the part where he's training and then there's the part where he's leaving rebellion and like it so there's all these like restarts and stuff. Yeah I honest I still think this is one of walking penises best performances and I feel like it's a role that you would never see him again. Oh Yeah Russell. Crowe no keep Russell Crowe. I'll never liked this ever again. Heartthrob Sexy Action Lead Caesar Cut. I've never seen this movie. It's real good yeah. He didn't joy in a lot is like I'm going to say that a lot about some of the films early. It's okay I mean if you ever wondered we're doomed got his mask from. You should watch glad I will watch a lot of these movies. I'm sure but yeah no. I Love Gladiator. It's pretty it's weird because it was one of one best picture and like people in hindsight were like really gladiator. And I'm like yeah because it's just because it's like a popcorn action movie doesn't mean it doesn't deserve the acclaim. It
How Animals Get Color Without Pigment
"There's more than one way to make it color when humans one address. Something up with a splash of colour. We almost always rely on. Paints dyes or some other form of payments nature uses pigments too but after a few billion years of trial and error it also has another trick up its sleeve. It's called structural color. And it gets it's not from chemical properties but from physical shape so like. Have you ever wondered why humming birds have such vibrant colors? I mean they're not just bright they are iridescent. But if you took a hummingbird feather and grounded up into powder you wouldn't get that beautiful hugh that's because their color comes from the physical structure of the feathers specifically incredibly small pancake shaped structures. The colors we see are the result of light physically interacting with those stacks of Nanno skill flap. Jacks scientists have known for centuries that tiny structures? Were probably responsible for the IRIDESCENT Shimmer of peacock feathers and butterfly wings. And it's become clear over the last couple of decades that colorful micro and Nano scale structures give colored to living things across the natural world in everything from insects to fish to plants. Sort of backup. Pigments get their color because their molecules absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others structural colors on the other hand come from the physical properties of the material itself so in nature. These are usually something like cellulose. Collagen Keaton and Carrington. But if you look closely enough at the carapace of a beetle or at the berry like fruit of the herb paalea Camden Sada. Then you'll see a complex micro structure far more advanced than anything. Human engineers have ever designed. Take that herb polycondensation and it's metallic blue berries. While naturally occurring pigments tend to FADE OVER TIME. There are forty year old specimens of these berries. That haven't begun to fade but try to extract blue pigment from the fruit. And you'll get nothing. That's because the metallic blue comes from the wafer. Thin strands of cellulose are arranged in the berries. Cell walls the tiny threads are stacked in zillions of Helix Shapes and in arrangement that allows blue light to be reflected why Elat of other wavelengths passes through scientists are studying structural colors in nature to try to make some themselves in a field called synthetic photonics. In fact this field has given rise to technology. You probably know pretty well like Blu Ray but nature did it
"keaton" Discussed on Ellen on the Go
"On Disney. Plus you know what was fun about the Oscars for me last night was seeing Diane Keaton. Diane Diane. Keaton is just Chris Stein. Keaton is. He's been on the show seriously like probably fifteen times a lot of a lot of a lot. I feel like she's never them sober. This is our seventeen season. And she's been on at least fifteen th yes just is she. She is hilarious and she is uniquely herself and and that's so refreshing in fun to see someone come on our show who is just from their own little planet and is Leeann podcast. Mind God in heaven. What did she do on this appearance? Mary played burning question. Play burning questions that was really good and she historically very much does not wanNA play Games Games on why she's nervous very nervous and I think she just thinks it takes her sort of out of I don't know she genuinely things also genuinely thinks she's not interesting. She thinks she's boring. She doesn't understand why we keep booking. It's almost like you have to do something. And then when he does it he ends up right. Yeah Yeah unlike that anyway. Here's ellen playing burning questions rollet. When was the last last time you had too much wine last night? Okay okay yet. It seems like you're winning already. Finish this sentence saying Keaton is. She's troubled.
Electronic Television: The Great Depression And The World's Fair
"It's nineteen thirty. The world is stuck in the early stages the great depression many Americans lift their spirits at the new moving picture shows in theaters and nickelodeon 's Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin comedies. These films are often introduced with Mickey mouse cartoons or newsreels one newsreel in particular dazzles the audience with the promise of soon bringing these new moving picture shows into their very own homes presents. A backstage preview television the newest miracle of modern Electrical Engineering Mr penalty shown shown at the right is working on the image dissect to photoelectric camera. Tube of his own invention that distinguishes his system of television from others. It is said to be responsible for the most clearly defined television pictures placed in the second of this receiving system is a funnel shaped cattle due the round flat surface of its bulb becomes the picture screen in Studio Monitor. It does it as well. As in home receiving sense the image detector Tube and the Cathode Ray tube are the heart and brain system. Television Vilo Farnsworth's image to sector tube and camera system had finally brought the long anticipated picture radio into being station equipment. The electrons become radio impulses to broadcast and picked up by receiving sense where the routine is with us. The radio impulsive becoming points of light that appear on the screen as picture thirty pictures. I completed every second. These earliest television programming was live performance music and sound accompanied. The OBAMAS was action both visible and audible elements going on the air in perfect synchronization battling with the speed of light to amaze of tubes and equipment. The show leaves the station send the towers viewed by the television public and audience as yet small and comparatively ignorant of the research and experiment. That makes it possible rush to see and hear people many miles away watching this newsreel in the movie theater. The audience is intrigued but sceptical. The most fanciful dream of mankind is day startling reality destined to become the world's most popular science in one thousand nine thirty in San Francisco. Two years have passed since Filo funds worth with help from his wife. Pam Gardner and her brother cliff triumphantly showed off off a working prototype of electronic television. Violence picture was on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle under a headline that called him a genius is name was being being mentioned in newsreels magazines journals and the Associated Press but he hadn't yet found a manufacturer to partner with so financially files fortunes agents hadn't changed Penn gave birth to their first son. Filo T farnsworth third the previous year and a second son. Kenny would follow in nineteen thirty one but now a curious envelope in the days male brings a new possibility. You got a letter here. Filo says it's from New York I can't believe. RCA is offering one hundred thousand dollars for the image sector would. That's wonderful that exactly pam they want to own it outright i. It's not ideal but one hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money. Not compared to what television will eventually be worth. It's a mistake to cash in too soon like this. We have to keep the faith. I understand. Filo it's your invention that's Pammy. It's not it it never was. It's it's all of the great minds that have come before to make this possible. And it's you it's cliff. All of us were a team but they wanna buy our work and call it. There's it's just not fair. They can license it if they like. I've spent my entire life working towards this Pam. It's like it's like trying to sell one of our children. The Lord will provide Filo a a few weeks later. The farnsworth's receive another big opportunity with visit to the lab from United Artists. The Film Production Company was Silent Age Film Stars like Charlie the chaplain. Douglas Fairbanks D W Griffith and Mary. PICKFORD PICKFORD is especially enthusiastic. We just had to see this amazing new television system. We've heard so much about it. But when the time comes the image to sector won't cooperate Filo is rattled. I I'm sorry folks. This is humiliating million chaplain smiles. Don't sweat it. I've seen worse like Douglas's latest picture a few hours later. After the stars leave cliff finds the problem on a wire wasn't plugged in it. Was that simple Dan. How did I not see that Pam tries to reassure him? Mary Pickford was here. We were all a bit distracted. It did keep the faith Filo when a third opportunity knocks a few weeks later Filo is determined to answer the call this time. FILC who radio in Philadelphia. They they they want to license the Patents Fund our research. But it'll still be ours with some help Vilo at Phil Co so in Philadelphia moving from the bay area to the city of brotherly love. What do you think it sounds great? And so the Farnsworth family packed packed their bags with their belongings precious equipment and board a train to head across the country to Philadelphia Pennsylvania. His family counting on him. Kylo could only pray he was making the right decision.
"keaton" Discussed on What We Said
"This is the is the tease how we gotta instead of the mental. We'll see how the reaction is Besa yes I didn't want to like it's hard because all these people you know all these people personally and you know what it's like to be in the hot seat and like we were saying it's like I'm sure a lot of people wish they could do things differently. You Never Wanna be even though I have no connection to other than knowing you like I can see like you were saying how it gives me more sympathy for people on the bachelor who like say things and then they're like Ooh they probably didn't mean meaner didn't want to say but then everyone hates them and I was just like like things get so MS strode I rant and I think like Lauren. Nice girl like sweets and night in another nice. There's not a gun pointing us. She's nice and other good things no she wants to be like this. You Know Disney princess like people like her kind of thing and she felt like that was threatened and she needed to make sure For the audience that like she is still that and so she did. She did what she felt like. She had to do to maintain that Meanwhile you have like be. Who's like I'm just your average girl? Sometimes I say swear words you know. Whatever and people are like relatable like we love her and like Lauren's like what the heck like I'm the sweet sweet little princess and so She I think in that moment she did what she had to do to maintain sympathy persona or or what people like perceived her to be and I think that led her to be unfair. Jake onstage that makes sense that makes sense one. Also we've talked about this right after the show and I was like It's hard because you as viewers we see them as characters and nods the people. It's like a movie. It's like any kind of reality. Show like you dissociate them as an actual person because you don't see them in real life like their four year entertainments you. You talk about them as characters and it's just so different than in reality. Yeah and I think in October. There's only been a couple times I'm like do. I have depression Shen in my entire life like I think generally have good mental health but all of October I was like you know having these weird anxiety. Things and like bras probably depressed in October. which is weird? Because that's when the attention was coming but I was getting. DMZ Don't hurt be don't hurt be. Yeah you better not because I felt like people were very loose with like some very personal things with me because I was a character like yeah. Don't hurt her to her so I don't JC AC. We commenting on though. I don't blame any twice if you're dating if your debut I don't I don't blame anybody for like doing that Because they they don't like know what people are like going through And like I signed up for it too I guess. Also that's a piece of advice if you're going to do that. Show once wants it done and Like inbetween during its showing an airing. I would talk to a mental health professional throughout that whole process which is good and I think anytime you're in the public eye. I even with us. It's like with instagram with youtube or with podcasting and say you kind of are signing up for it's like people say whatever they want to say they do community they can say whatever they want to say to you and not that. It's like your responsibility to take that as the truth. But it's kind of part of the job and yeah you have to go through a stage of learning how to deal with that in a healthy way. It's difficult because it's like ninety nine percent of the comments. I can like be like whatever you know. Now that they're just one of the masses but when you're in a bad mood you're lonely you're mad at something else and you see one bad comment. Wow it's it's it's funny. How like it can be no worse than any other comment? It just like really like does as well. Yeah for sure especially on days like this is at least I am. If I'm feeling insecure about something already like deep down. I might not even be sure like aware that I'm insecure about it. And someone says something about it and they're not even trying to be necessarily like purposely hurtful. Those are the ones I'm like. Oh my gosh. She's just a hater. I can't believe in but then I'm still thinking about it and telling everybody I'm like Oh this is what this person said Blah Blah actually like and like. That's what's so funny is like I had. I talked to like McKell. Unlike my podcast she was on the the bachelor add. I've I've I've gotten to know a lot of these people and everyone's just trying to do everybody's like trying to be a good person and like you know you you're both like very lovely people and I'll just try in. You know whatever whatever so people can say those mean cutthroat things but these. I'm talking to two very level headed nice people right now thank you. There's three in the room. So let's talk about after the show after the final rose if you will what was because in the finale when be picked Walker and she did did not pick you. You looked like genuinely really sad and surprise and surprised. So let's talk about that a little bit and we'll get into like what happened after that. Yeah the surprise was you always WanNa be self a healthy amount of self critical like you. Don't want to think too much of yourself and I to try to keep that under control so I think I thought my odds were like eighty twenty to ninety ten of me winning and I and it's not even about me winning. I thought like be trusted that be would pick Would pick me because like we had a connection and I trusted that connection that we had But I would tell people like Fifty fifty chance. I don't even know I don't know that could be walker but I thought it was would be me and so that was the genuine. Likes like when it came down to it was like Oh shoot like this is this is like this is the one you know that this she she she she picked the other guy This is the scenario lake. I anticipated less and So there was that an mixed mixed with. There's like an embarrassment there's four people watching with a camera and everything and And it's different than a ceremony riot ceremony. It's it's like oh you can kinda like mask your emotion. You can just kind of walk off and you can't be go be sat on your own. I had to explain stuff tour. Had talk like she she Ended it with me and I had to like the words with words and it was just surprising like I. I just couldn't believe it so and and So I was genuine. That was all real that was that was all real so afterwards like well. Where do you go from there? You don't get picked you go home. Tom Years like K.. Like what's what's next. And how long did her and Walker even kind of last date. I don't want to speak for them but I don't. Okay now it's too long I wanna say it was within a few weeks of Of after the show elster. I I don't know I would let Walker speak for himself on that ghost her did you like. What was your first interaction with be after did you? I think we're we. I saw her at a party for the first time in a while and really got our hopes up. Because someone's like Oh. I saw picture of Keaton and be at a party together was is like yeah. But what's funny is that as months and months of us like talking and being in being Ron's yeah friends and that was like which we were okay? Oh you guys did a very good job. Everyone on the show of like keeping it under wraps relentless looking Oh really we were looking for spoilt. Not US makes it. Yeah I told you spoilers you said you send an NDA. I did sign in India.

If it were different circumstances like I'm not saying I wouldn't ever do that with somebody else like inbetween relationships with but like with her. I didn't feel like that would be appropriate because I didn't want her to get any because like even after the show. There was still electoral. Maybe I could date this girl But I didn't want her to be like okay. I think she fell into this false dichotomy. And she thinks she's aware of this like Keaton or Walker Keaton or Walker Keaton Walker when there's a lot of guys out there she's she's gorgeous she's smart. She's bright she's she spunk and she's fun and I got nervous that she lake. She fell into that. And it's like Oh Walker. This didn't work out with Walker so thus must be a kitten and I I wanted her.

List of copyrighted works entering the public domain in 2020
"As the clock strikes midnight on new year's eve get this thousands of copyrighted works will finally entered the public domain and that includes books movies music all sorts of creative works that were first published in the U. S. in nineteen twenty four and if you're a little hazy on came out that year here's one the first movie adaptation of Peter Pan okay yeah we would have had a clip for that but that one was a silent film but also one of the things coming out this year blues legend of ma Rainey song CC right I'm enters the public domain it means it's no longer protected by copyright and the public can use and consume it without permission and at no cost and without the public domain we wouldn't have so much art that rests on the work of authors like Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare and these mass expirations used to happen every year in nineteen ninety eight though Congress passed the copyright term extension act it extended copyright protections for existing works for twenty years January first twenty nineteen so the first public domain dump since nineteen ninety eight for more on this host and you have a your recently spoke to Jennifer Jenkins a clinical professor of law and director of the center for the study of public domain at Duke University Jennifer thanks for joining me thanks so much for having me on the show tunes in so give us a couple of examples of maybe more of the popular works in the public domain and that some of our listeners might be familiar with well works from before copyright existed such as the works of Shakespeare the works of Mozart the works of Beethoven the works of Charles Dickens all of these are in the public domain and your listeners might be familiar with them because if you think think about the contributions of Shakespeare to our culture because Romeo and Juliet was in the public domain letter bursting was free to write West Side Story the movie's Gnomeo and Juliet and for me unless di did not have to get in touch with his errors and they were not subject to a veto and Shakespeare himself through in the public domain before him Romeo and Juliet you on Arthur Brooks the tragical history of Romeo and Juliet which in turn on all of its Pyramus and Thisbe and so your audience may be able to think of you know scores of works that drew on public domain material when something is not in the public domain what happens then because I understand that the song Happy Birthday was not in the public domain isn't that interesting it is now when something's not in the public domain that means that if you want to use the work you have to locate the copyright holder and you have to get permission from the copyright holder is welcome to say no are they can charge you a fair fee or they can charge you an exorbitant fee now this is a good thing copy rights are very important the public coming in as the yen to the gang of copyright protection so the design of the copyright system is there will be a term of copyright protection when you meet any of us you know enjoy exclusive rights over creative works then after a certain period of time that copyright expires in those works go into the public domain where anyone else is free to use and build upon them so there's some work entering the public domain and twenty twenty what might people be excited about what's coming into our public domain wonderful music so my favorite musical piece going to public domain is George Gershwin's Rhapsody in blue some literary works Thomas Mann's the magic mountain EM Forster's passage to India wonderful children's book a a Milne when we were very young there are also some wonderful silent films works featuring Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd silent film called Dante's inferno which itself to a public domain works Dante's divine comedy of course but also intermixing that with elements from Charles Dickens and the Christmas Carol so they're really great works going to the public domain next year and I know a lot of us are very excited about that so if

Tony Awards Preview
"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"keaton" Discussed on High and Mighty
"It's just how ballsy just teenagers are. I'm just going to go with the tried and true even if you're the guy who invented printers. I'm gonna say the printer. This one always works. Tech people. So we're obviously we're talking about Michael Keaton. Clearly say, you could tell this deep into the podcast. We've we've really delve deep into our targets of Jack Michael Keaton. We, you had previously spoken about fast talking wise guys are smart allegation. Do the weirdo, like nonstop, riff machines. I was on Wilhite Anthony kings podcast. Pretty between that. I say that and the Jeff Rubin, Jeff, Rubin show too old school bogus. I just ripped that off for my. Even even eliminated. The part of don't get me started where someone comes on and talks about something. I don't even know anything about. Limited by where you grow. Let's talk about shit. I like thanks for having me. I hope five more people watch my special. And went to gave his Rubini yelled at me about his clothes. I was wrong about keeping bring. If you didn't want to talk about this, but even this episode will be a rip off because I basically just talked about. Back and listen to it. We're gonna repeat all that. That show is dead. They're not doing episodes. Don't get in now. Yeah, guess stay on this one St. locked. Michael Keaton cut through all of it. You skip all the fast talking weirdo shit. We're going straight to the right to court or type he does very well. Yes. Yes. Just like further define that. Yeah. I feel like it's actors who can get into that kind of comedic sort of like really quick quick fire like rapid paced kind of riffing comedy riffing, but also be sorted deeply committed character performers at very grounded. And I was gonna, say pretty pretty heavy. Amount of acting is going there. Like small, they have to be small like it's not Robin Williams. No, but it is. It's Michael right? That's that's an interesting distinction. Because like you feel like that description, you could be like, oh, you mean Robin Williams until you? Because I know you don't mean that because he's broader, Robin Williams is broader than that, and there's something about, I think, and maybe I'm putting too much on Keaton, but it's. Everything we can on its from a low status POV a little. Yeah, often for that character. I think when they when that character is high status, it's less fun. Yeah, or at least you're less on that guy side, but that's maybe true for me with comedy in general? I feel like I'm more I love you know, confident idiots, which is definitely like type that Michael Keaton plays a lot in confidence. They're funnier than that feral saw I locked in and made like four. The funniest movie. Yeah. So many people have like just being confidently wrong about something like I feel like that's more than half of the Simpsons. Characters are definitely wrong about everything she Wiggham is just like a confident chief of police is the worst police officer you've ever seen confidence like unbagged up confidences. I very, very purely funny. And I think it lets that character be like really committed and really believe the things they're saying, you know, you're not undercutting it with kind of knowing irony or a little self commentary. Wink to the camera, straight manning yourself. You're very grounded in what the fuck you're doing? Yes. I think he fits that mold nicely. And then I think my game is also kind of my favorite actor because because then he got to show off the real true acting chops very serious, legitimate movies. It's one of those. I feel like it's a, he has a bizarro world dream career for me, right. Like I don't think I will ever actually attain the things he has attained. I don't think our passer the same at all while what a brave claim. I'm going to be as famous as my bookie pretty close. Devin guy. He is humble. He's accepted that he might not get nominated for Oscars. Yeah, but it still might you gotta leave the. Dr open, never say, never. You don't wanna case Hollywood list.
