Any heckling who wrote and directed clueless wrote and directed clueless. Yes so it's six degrees of Donald Phase on is what you're six degrees of. Donald Facing Forest Whittaker is also in that movie he directed waiting to exhale and I was in it and I remember going on the audition for waiting xl. At the same time I was shooting clueless. The movie and I was forest in. I had a little conversation about his experience with amy and the reason why I got waiting next because I'm sure there were a bunch of people who auditioned for but forrest told me he was like I went with you. Because you know you're working with amy. And Amy gave me my start and a form of the style. Jenna for me so I got to be in waiting accent with Whitney Houston off the Bassett. Loretta Devine Liberal.

Snoop you know showing up snoops in a lot of this episode's dog intern. Snoop Dogg was in a lot of this show. I know it's funny if you start looking at the background. You'll not snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg snoop concern if you guys look if you guys look at these episodes closely you'll see that basically they're just they're just moving around the same twenty background folks and there's times where it's like. They'll be one scene in soups in the background in the upstairs in the background. I'm like guys come on. He worked a lot and then. Yeah but now. We're starting to introduce new characters. So you'll see drawn. Fifty-one a momentous moment. Colonel Doctor First appearance in the background as Bill told us on the last episode named because everyone thought he looked like Colonel Sanders ride the Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials and is he still alive or or did he pass? I believe he passed away. I believe that's where we lose an older fellow when we're doing this twenty years ago by the way someone clarified for me on on the social media interwebs that the beard fuss a film. I was trying to remember was girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I knew was a foster move. Was fincher right right about it being fincher? It's grow the Dragon Tattoo.

CAST and You guys are hilarious. I'm always cracking up Not only guys but the stories of people tell too I I just listened to the most recent podcast about the The Guy Andrew who did a bunch of Mali in brought me back to my rabies and uh doing a bunch of Mali and it was Kinda crazy and his story was hilarious. Had Me laughing out loud while I'm driving But anyway anyway to get to my story so I'm a IV heroin addict as well But I started it with doing pills And actually started with like Vicodin. But you know the Vikings and always made me sick so I had a boyfriend at the time who Really liked by Gordon and so I would do it here and there but it would always make me sick so I wouldn't do it that much but You know one day one of our friends found some oxycontin the thirty grand pills and so we started doing those and those make me sick as the Vicadin I guess maybe because of the they don't have tylenol them But so yeah we popped those like the first time and you know felt great and it was pretty much every day thing almost immediately like I can almost think back to the the day that I started doing it. And that's when my line started to spiral out of control But the in this was like eight years ago now now But so we started railing. The oxy's you know and so I had a job At a sandwich shop out in California California where I was living and I started that job when I was in high school. And my boyfriend at the time didn't have a job so I was supporting both his habit and my habit well he became friendly with a couple of our pill dealers that we had and A lot of Kim went to a dirty Dr They would just you know support or give the The doctor an MRI report and the doctor would basically basically. That's all the evidence. He needed To just pop you know. Give them scripts of ninety milligram or ninety thirty milligram. oxy's there's Two Times a month and xanax. And someone's like I mean that's kind of a crazy combination. I can't believe a doctorate. Actually Prescribe Somebody that but anyway so I wrote up a fake. I get you you know emory report. That just had my boyfriend's name on hand but like somebody else's information like I mean this kid was like nineteen years old you know like so he didn't have like fucked up of a back.

Hit It on the nose. But that's a long time ago. I remember it was long time. There was a lot of painful full Music emails Guy Complaining about that means the phone except with the fish tank in the sirens and the phone a ah the problem with dopey growing. Is that all of these complaints. Just keep coming back to army here. Read the top one. The only podcast that matters five stars I started listening to Dobie less than a year ago. I binged most of it and I have to say that my previous favorite podcasts have been taken a backseat great. Thank you dave for carrying on with the PODCAST. I do not know what I would do without it. Wow amazing stuff. Yeah did you hear rob. He's crazy Mushroom story no I I didn't. I was thrown out of the room. I'm looking forward to you your opinion of that one. I'm sure it's pretty bad. I bet well I just want to say that. Oh two things number one. Josh arrived at mountainside the dopey scholars he got there he said hold on. I'm GonNa read what he texted me because it's a great Decay just texted me and ask me. Does your dad have a tattoo. No I told you that was phone and I was with a birthday party. But it's funny funny so he says here we go. He says this is not helping me hold on. He says my yearly income. He says he's excited to go to treatment and he says his yearly income is around thirteen thousand dollars so yeah. It's certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I will be feeling a bit like a Junkie Cinderella. Yeah so I think takes it into Jovan. So he's so I think that's awesome and everybody. Let's put out nice wishes and good thoughts and stuff for Josh. Because my dad hates the idea of praying. God forbid an attic praise and gets better right no praying Praying is fine. If you believe in praying is just a your own way of doing things is what you should be doing and if it gets you feel better. That's wonderful. That's Great Dad. Maybe you you should start a self help thing. This is three this one which one by I'm not reading that other one is because I know you can keep the white privilege guy off the air all right before we go. I'm going to leave you. Guys with a voicemail from this woman called never or Neva. She actually sent it in a when Chris was alive she sent it in way way back. It's a story about Outta you'll hear about it. It's about drugs and the Mexican mafia and all this stuff. But I'm GONNA leave you with the voicemail from never or Neva and please. He's sending voice mails read it. I'm loving what's happening over there. fucking instagram happening twitter facebook. Follow dopey wherever you can get involved. Sending dopey Art Sandon dopey music be part of the incredible experience -perienced that is called dopey. And what are you. What are you looking at me like that for nothing? Do you have anything to say. Pay attention to what's going on in the world and and another piece of information. Joe Rogan the number one podcast in the world recently endorsed Bernie Sanders for president. A- and me who has not number one podcast I'm going to also endorse Bernie. Sanders seem what would love. What does it matter? Frenzy was Bernie. Not I say I. It'll never happen. He's too old to Jewish. He's to socialist minded. Yeah but he's gruff. And tell the truth. I believe that if curb your enthusiasm has is a good season this year. Then Bernie might have a chance. But I think trump's GonNa win personally no well trump is in deep deep trouble and Listen to this impeachment impeachment. The evidence is overwhelming. It doesn't matter. The Senate is Republican. This is not a political show of course not but pay attention then. Also what's coming up soon or maybe not soon is dopey day. Dopey Day looks like it's going to be the to honor Chris's death isn't every day for you. dopey everyday is dopey vide for me. But the official Dopey Day I think is going to be in July. The day that Chris died were everybody is going to put a Dobie logo on there is in solidarity thirty of dopey addiction recovery. And of course Chris. Do you think that sounds Nice. I don't even know how to do. What if I do it for you? You you did it for me. That would be fun. We went to Jim's funeral and my dad were fucking the dopey ski hat. You look ridiculous you WanNa tell that story what you said at the funeral what did I. Oh ooh that's the best story of all it's not I can't believe I forgot to tell that story. Maybe you can handle it now. So we're at the funeral and don't be nation. Just hold your breath with this one. So we're at the funeral and Jim's Jim's father had died and his wife I guess one one of his wishes at the funeral was that his wife plays the opera Osceola meal so they put on Osceola Mio. And it's very emotional and I'm sitting between my older daughter and my father and I look at my father and he looks like the eyes are watering. He's feeling the thing and I said I said Dad I said what. Do you want me to play for you when you die. Great and for me it was like it was just the best moment. Of course I everybody dies his dad. What do Handel's Messiah? Maybe Dave Brubeck Take Matt. We'll play the house of the rising sun and we'll do the volume thing my dad in the car. He would play the volume of the radio and he'd say I don't play an instrument. I play the radio so yes so my dad's funeral for Dave Brubeck.

And I'm just gonNa read an email play voicemail voicemail and maybe we'll have my dad read some reviews here we go. Hey Dave longtime listener since two thousand seventeen I. I wanted to say how Chris and yourself felt like such perfect displays for the two of the two retarded wolves inside me and attention deficit drunk Irish Wolf Wolf and a neurotic criminally Jewish wolf. I'm both and all these things and it was beautiful to hear them together. I'm a recovering addict poorly recovering and I thought I may have a story. From many of those. In the DOPEY nation towards the beginning of two thousand eighteen my use primarily cocaine alcohol on psychedelics with occasional dips into Ben's Osen opioids added in had become unbearable. I was faced with the decision. Most of US come to. How am I going to get out of this Pitt? University treatment therapy. I chose to get married and joined the army fast forward eighteen months later and I'm working at a spooky government agency. Having to do with. National Security Nudge Nudge. With top secret. Clearance this geographic from very northern cold state to to the prolific heroin capital of America. Think the wire had not cured me. I found a new passion methamphetamine. This began a year year long battle with psychosis and the general havoc. The substance causes on one's life. I have a couple of stories as that. I've managed to remember but for the most part I struggled to recall much of the past year. I recently had elapsed with alcohol. Setting me back from twenty days to three. Somehow my marriage is standing ending shakily. I managed to hide my addiction poorly from the army and my family. If you're interested in hearing about addiction from the perspective of Irish Jewish Junkie Double Double O seven please reach out. My recovery is kicking my ass and I could use all the direction I could get. I P S I think I know one of the old school. dopey from back home. The Guy who talked about blacking out with a cigarette in his ass crack and falling asleep in his pullout freezer I think we shot coke together. Good guy think he stiffed me. Hon My shot thank God that would be. How wheels that did that? So how does if you're listening to you know this guy anyways feel free to shoot me an email or something. I'll try to abstain from bothering your workplace when a New York City find you read this on the year on the air. Say Cottage artist for Chris. Sr so I love that and also Robbie's fucking story fuck me up a little bit. It got me a little bit psychedelic sized but I appreciate. We share that story hot wheels. If you're listening Gino this guy s are Jewish Irish junkie. I don't know maybe you know him. Hold on it's a great tradition tradition for me to have. My Dad read reviews on the show. So you have your glasses. Dan All right so come in. And why don't you read Asom. dopey reviews listen. dopey nation go on itunes. Leave a review. It would be nice if it was positive and it would be nice if it was five star Star but a review is a review. You know what are you going to do. A review is a fucking review and data. You still are you still following the dopey review reviews. Yeah Yeah Yeah it. Increase your like nine hundred ten mentioned on Itunes you look at the weirdest weirdest lists nine hundred ten.

"You're scaring him and he didn't know what to do and I was like. We gotTA GOTTA get Outta here so I grabbed you and we left and you and me went to a deli. Unlike Sixty Fifth Street and Broadway and I auto juice or something yeah so we walked so we went there and as soon as we crossed the threshold out of the park work My like my demeanor changed and like I I I came to essentially I the world of Academia Adela and I remember opening the Deli case to the drinks. Yeah like they're like wall of drinks and like that's like Oh hey and then you turned around and you're like wow you're back and I was like yeah. I wouldn't bright and shiny like yeah. I'm normal but I was like I was returned like I. My identity returned to me. I wasn't a vessel anymore Yeah and then you turn to me and you said Hey. Do you know what just happened. And I. I don't know if I could have reported it in that way but years later I wrote all of it out right And that's how you have all these details because I don't remember anything. Yeah exactly Because yeah I just remember remember remember it very very clearly well but it goes to show like the transporting effects of mushrooms. And who knows if you're just bugging out if there's if there's like actual consciousness floating around that floats into you like who knows like how to quantify what really happens but but I think that's like one of the great psychedelic traumatizing stories of my life. But but it ended up nicely. You know what I mean. We ended it was so cool because we had weather this storm but we were always you know the same friends and it made me feel great at the end of it because because everything was like we had been out there but we had been able to come home. You know what I mean. Yeah that's what you were saying about like go go. The one thing that you can't do is actually it's like in Lord of the Rings it's like you can't break the fellowship you know like when you're there you can't can't you can't break the fellowship because then you know like somebody getting hurt but also that like if you allow everyone to be together then you we can rebuild a narrative. This moment in my life was one of the moments that create. Like that. Allowed me to deconstruct my the way that I see the world so it caused me to really think about race in a different way to think about sexuality in a different way to think about Out The American system In a different way like the endeavor that New York is when we're looking at the skyline because it was just like Oh wait I understand you know the strange purpose of capitalism and building cities like it's weird kind of really like you know like like myth adventure that but also like the whole thing because it was beautiful beautiful. I understood so much of what went into your right. I can't tell what was a narrative so like we're trying to impose my narrative and try to make sense of it so it comes to the weird bunch of stories but also like people talk talk about Lizard people you know like. Is this some kind of right right. Deep thing that's like in humans or like are there real live your people like are there like you know like did I get possessed a for a long time Dave you remember. We were talking about like I got fucking possessed you know or is it just that those are parts of my identity like being from New York you know like we absorb all the activities of the people around us like what am I trying to figure out. Let me beating you know me being a male and yet not being super masculine dude style and then having to then re-figure myself as a woman and and because I'm I'm not white like them picking on blackness says that the binary thing that's like oh no I I must be black. If I'm not like a traditional dude dude dude I must be a woman must be gay or whatever yeah I think it's amazing and also like the fear and loathing in Las Vegas like he he steps out on the floor tripping acid and everybody's lizards you know. I think that's A. That's a part of sort of psychedelic imagery. That's built in and I don't think anybody I mean I guess you could study it for eternity and figure out these telltale totems or whatever you WANNA call them but I just sort of accepted all as part of the great psychedelic wash and I think. This story just illustrates. Why dopey is one of the top five mushroom podcasts on the world? I just think that's what it's about you know But but I love you and I really appreciate you telling this crazy story of identity race and Psychedelia on the the greatest addiction and mushroom podcasts in the world dopey the right. Well what do you think I think it's great Yeah let me know you guys I. Ah You know. Talk Talk to Dave and let me know about like. Yeah how what you think about secondary three Dave and the dopey nation. 'cause I ah it's like it was such a memorable thing and I I don't view it. I don't do it very often. I don't know that I would ever go back but I do. I think it was an important Thing for for me because it really hot me certain things or maybe I taught myself or maybe the University of it it or maybe the You know like beings that like flow through me my ancestor or you know other lives. That have lived. They taught me but ah I didn't want to be curious to think about you know. Is it a party. What is it for.

"Like the feeling of in the cross all these streets and the number streets and I've been reading I've been reading Dante's inferno and And I was thinking about like the all the different cantos in Dante's and it was like you know we can't. I don't know it was just like we were going to turn the center of thing. I don't think it was the center of Health. Just yes but it was. It was Kinda strange. We enter the cross the threshold into the park and I started starting to sweat and there was like really feeling kind of weird and down on Iraq and suddenly and then the world starts to com a little bit and it starts to hold on hold on hold on. What's what's that clicking ship? What's that clicking shit? What what's that clicking? Big Noise what does that have to rain on my roof car. Remember and it's raining all right. Continue so we're on the rock the mushrooms hitting US I remember this I was tripping out and and the five of us were sitting on this rock in the middle of central park on a on a sunny weekend day or something. Yeah yeah it. Was You know we had enough time. I don't know why why everybody wasn't as deep in the trip would cause out there who sit on this rock. And I'm like I did mantra starts coming into my head. Starts trying to explain the world and it and then what happens to me when I start to trip or start to get deep into Psychedelia. There's narrative comes in and tries to explain to me what the Hell's going on around me and tries to tell the story of what's happening so I just started thinking we're dumb monkey sitting on a rock dumb monkey dome monkeys hurtling through outerspace sitting on a rock on rock dumb monkeys dumb monkeys and and that kind of made me like Oh God calmed down but then this guy popped edano any looks at us and I was like Oh man look at that. He thinks he thinks oh no. And and then we started getting itchy in my skin and like trying to get out of there like okay all right fine. That's cool we walk. Everybody's walking or walking walking. We're walking and we stopped and we sit on this perk bleachers overlooking a big field in the park. And then the next thing I know that Roland is Shuqing his guts out looking out over the field and licking his lips and they're sticky sticky and purple and He settled down. And and we kinda chill out just another moment. But I look at Allen and then So normally he had a jackal and he looks like a new and he's looking out on skyline it kind of like this statue and looking out skyline of Manhattan and I can't figure out what was real or what was I I really I couldn't tell things or so blurry and more fake story life and then I Move towards towards this tree because I see this kid crouched like a you know like on all fours and I think we gotta help that okay. We gotTA help that kid and I go up to it then I look and then it's like this little ysern leather bag. I full of Botchy Ball of God. This is what's going on this stuff. I don't remember any of this. Isn't that what happened. you know like we're so who I trying to trying to figure out like what the fuck was going on and and then I started to realize oh the field. We're trying to figure everything out so I looked at the skyline and I notice others construction and I noticed I'll that's what's happening. Oh visit this is how this is the way the city was constructed. It was constructed by lizards. People like like they were chuckled lawless. Nuts that's what made that they were but they were kind of chuckled while Geckos and they were different different kinds and there were some that were really dark ones and duck those lizards on the outside and they stick to the outside of buildings and they would climate quite a bit of building and got darker as they were working The working to build the actual buildings in a lighter lizards were on the the inside there on the inside. And that's why they were lighter in color and they put the loan the Darker Lizard to work on the outside right and this will all figured it out. I was like Oh shit why do you think what do you think. The lighter lizards made the darker lizards be doorman at the Jewish Jewish funeral homes. To know I think exactly why and in all in this effort to get to God right because 'cause we're building all these literal these towers in the sky right to get closer to God we're all trying to get closer to God and then I figured out Holy Shit. They're all fucking wrong. They're all wrong. They're all wrong. What we need to do to get to God in to get into a place like the field in front of us and what we would do? Is We all get into the field and then turn in the same direction at the same time in all of the cardinal directions and then we would sing one single note and that would bring the the kind of value value in unity that this is what you that day in the park at that moment. Yeah I understood that we all did the same thing at at the same time vigils but did it at the same time we would achieve something like that and which is true but continue you know but but we couldn't and suddenly I started to feel nervous and I started ordered to realize that all men like I was also one of these lizards and it was it was just so I don't know the whole world was so threatening rattling in this moment and I couldn't figure it out so you know like We all move they got. Would you start moving in we. We ended up sitting at a bench. Okay I was there I know h like try to you. Guys were noticing that I was really agitated. Super worked up trying to you know talk and figure it out but I couldn't really knew it'd been a long time since we've been like college and it had been in a long time since we've been really intimate friend and our friendship had always had never taken this kind of constellation and ended up being like like putting me nervous and ill at ease and thinking about race. I'm thinking about up in all of this or try to figure out a big unified five feeling. I think I think it was a I think we we had eaten an ounce between the five of us so we all ate a little bit more than an eighth. I think you know I mean that's that's a lot of silence Ivan going through our brains and like you said when you even smoke weed. These psychedelic crazy places. Open up in your head so your brain is fucking pulsating with over an eighth of mushrooms and it just I mean you were like we get drunk on those things like I remember. I was high to my head on the mushrooms I remember like looking down at the rocks in the first place and just having open eye visuals and feeling like just seeing everything kind of wavy. I wasn't having having this incredible sort of you know you know vision about the city and my place race. Thank God I mean I was fortunate but I did see you fucking losing it you know and I got worried. Yeah let's chill out. Let's smoke a cigarette. And then like I. I could not tell the difference between reality and non reality and so we're smoking a cigarette and like couldn't figure it out and so I was like I. I got an idea I got an idea. I'll burn myself with cigarettes to test the real and so it started. I pulled up my shirt and then like AH started trying to burn myself on on my belly with a linen of the cigarette. And we're like what are you doing. Hey I I don't even know what you're saying but you try to stop me from doing it. And then right was sitting next to me. And he's like looking at me like in in like deep in my like like deepen my eyes and and like he he he was like like. Oh my God maybe maybe Ryan in wants to kiss me. Maybe maybe he did look at any leaned in and I was like Oh man maybe I should kiss him back and then like I didn't know what to do and I like when I started grabbing his His wrist and I like grabbed Abdel hard as I could and then he said you're hurting. You're hurting me. And like I couldn't let it could not figure out what was what was happening and I I just saw had like the look of fear in Ryan is so I said I gotta get Outta here and I. It just dropped everything and then I miss. I said I gotta get out and I took a path led into the to the to the kind of undergrowth into the woods in central park and I took one way and I was like Shit. Shit this no this is already been predetermined for me like if I go down Senate passing know what's going to happen and then I tried the other one is like if I go there and it's already done like I understand with already going to happen. If I do this thing it's already done for me. I can't make this choice to like get out of here and I was trying to. I didn't know what to do. And then then you said Hey. Hey you said to me like hey like you know like. Don't leave the group that that's the one thing that we can't do. We have to stay in connection. We gotta be connection connected. It's okay And like we have rotated like a really major you. Well what about the part about the part where the Jamaican thing happened. It happened after this. Oh really okay continue. Yeah so it's like you know like 'cause I would about runoff runoff. Runoff aware would on mushrooms in the park. Yeah it might have been just before the but at any rate I liked. There was a time loop in a predestination thing that I tried to that I moved through that I try to figure out and then we're like walking out of the park work. We were walking out of the park suddenly like we. We say okay because this is in the early nine ninety three and everybody had started ninety. Four thousand nine hundred ninety four and everybody started free styling for trying to freestyle and then like so. Alan starts free styling and we are. We're all trying kind of freestyle and then like I don't know this. This is where like I opened to the psychedelic like like world. And and I you know this you know this identity likes slipped into me it like it took me over and I felt what my body turn into the body of an older Jamaican women and like my my. My body began to move like that and I started singing and sounding like that and trying to try to relate to everybody around me like that and people were like and and then would morph into a black man in American black man and like that identity would move through me and then and then it just didn't i. You know like I wasn't I wasn't necessarily there. I was like the container that was holding. All of the you're the vessel for for these these moving personalities and identities. It was crazy though when when I remember just the woman hitting you and you're strutting around and and Ryan got so scared because I think you got angry at him in that moment and we were all trying to freestyle and we were all tripping and and and I think you were in that sort of. How long do you remember being in that sort of situation where you you didn't really know who you were or you were shifting through identities? He's pro. I don't know I mean time. Who Know what do you remember about it? I don't think there would have been any kind of way for me to tell time if that in in fact I was going through a time loop like I there was the during the predestination thing. There was a time loop like I couldn't figure out time I thought it kept happening again. Having that wasn't time wasn't really necessarily a concept that I could understand that I mean like in Linear time twenty minutes and and then that's when I remember like I was like we gotta get Outta here because you got into some crazy confrontation with Ryan like you scared him and he he was standing there and you guys were like face to face but it was not like you were about to kiss him..

"It was Roland Allen and Myself your go. Who else are there? Ryan my my my roommates in college. Who also has a conspirator who has a rock and roll podcast? He came on. dopey recently my friend Ryan was there. I love that Guy payments we try to kiss him in the story He's a good guy yeah he he endured a lot endured a lot in this story so there we were at at the table and I remember we had a little Roll up bag use of mushrooms. I don't think they were liberty cap. But but they The unrolled really like that crinkly way and we took the amount and I don't mind the taste of mushrooms but people were making faces. They chomped down an entire eighth. I didn't know that you might want to reduce the amount is as your. You know your second delicate venture. You know Prowess but we all just ate an entire eighth at the table and you know we were having a chill we said okay. Let's just take a walk and we wanted to go to central park because the park is the best place. Go when you're tripping. They said I hadn't done. I don't think I've ever done mushrooms at this point. I don't think so I don't think so and I'm you know like I have a very very I'm very touched by the PSYCHEDELIA weed is like a Elliott be like we'd opens up like portals in my brain so I ended up putting on you know my stock and we kind of ambled downstairs and we were giddy and we had that kind of feeling when you get that Look look towards an alleged drug you know of any kind kind of year your heartbeat goes up a little bit and it's kind of fun but it's really also kind of scary and elicit it doesn't feel like this is like she's like you're doing something and we were just walking and so fifty nine street is where the park is. David how is twenty eighth the street and Eighth Avenue and we were just gonNA walk the whole way and start walking and Things of Blur Insert to like soft around the edges. Kind of like when you're looking through a windshield and the rain is falling and things kind of get all soft and then I do starting to kick it and I just remember people blurring and I remember the girl who she.

"It's the audio book is very very much performance. Did you feel like doing kind of thing I really did. And you know we actually developed a one woman show on it for a long time but for whatever reason just never happened but yeah I mean I think it is. It's it feels like a performance to me and it's great because because of where I was when on the event happened it did lend itself to all these different accents in different people from around the world in different doctors and it was fun to do all those voices. They were great. It's a really really listen. It's a fun read. I want to ask you because we do we do dopey stories on dopey and I wanted to see if you can think think of I wrote down in my notes. The worst thing you ever did but that's probably not the way to approach this. Can you think of the funny drugstore. A dopey story if you will have refund. Ob Story for you. Okay so this is one of the more embarrassing things that happened to me. Even though the list guys won't care but I remember back back in the day I remember going to the Golden Globes one year and I was already pretty high and then at you're sitting at the state level. They didn't see do anything thing. It looks like they do but they just give you. Why just bottle after so I got plowed okay and after the the the show they take you into these separate rooms and they wanted to interview me for? I think it was a new. And I'm standing there randomly with Jeremy Romy piven and for whatever reason she they ask us to dance. And so I- stand in front of the camera and I'm just dancing dancing but they slow mo it for the first show me with the worst face drunk wrong face totally slow Mo dance a wasted your. It was so embarrassing. I never thought that's one of my more embarrassing stories but yet getting wrong and then being interviewed afterwards. Well that's the thing it's like. The audience is mostly you know not really famous actresses the audience. He's just a bunch of drugs decides Johnny Depp. I think Johnny Depp Lessons. Besides damn everybody's fucking just a normal fuck up and we're lucky that we never were slow mode in our worst moments fucking Golden Globes. That would we know that's what it was. It was like you have a really embarrassing vulnerable Bonin but on camera and then slowing it sucking down. It was awful so that was that sticks. I mean I'm sure. Have five million more. I just can't think of what that's moment. Okay I love that and I read on Wikipedia pedia and on Google that you have lupus. Is that difficult. I don't know if I shouldn't bring it up or whatever. Oh Yeah No I. Yeah in remission right now thank God yeah like six years ago I just became unable to walk on. It was horrible. It was really long involves process. But it's out that eventually after all these doctors that stuff that I found out I have lupus lightest which is where your immune system attacks or spinal spinal cord. Okay Anyway Chemo and all this crap and itchy and all these drugs and I thought remission so everything's great but yeah it was pretty. It was pretty bad for a while so I probably should be dead like thirty times over. I'm glad you're now all these. Yeah no and I didn't relapse thank got but I'm on these steroids and stuff. So that makes you gain weight and kind of feel weird but I'd rather that than in a wheelchair so totally did do you see any parables or comparisons between struggling with the Lupus and being an addiction or getting getting into remission and being in recovery. was there anything that was similar in your head. Yeah well I think I don't know about that but I think one of the weirdest things was I probably went like I dunno eighteen doctors to try to get diagnosed and and every single doctor. Almost every doctor left the room with their prescription pad left on their desk. And I who said an and each doctor right when I went in I'd say look I have these symptoms and I'm I'm a drug addict you can't ever prescribed me so anyway. So even after I say Estedat and they leave the room or look away. They leave their pads on the air prescription pads and I'd have to point out to all them. I just told you a drug addict addict and you have left right in front of me. Do don't come on. So I think it sort of underscored for me how how behind the Times doctors are about addiction and how they really don't understand their part that they've played in this this horrible health epidemic and they really need to take a little more seriously so I kind of L. that a couple of doctors but No other than that. I mean Lupus. I wasn't even panicked. Went through it because I knew I survived addiction and if you can survive addiction you can survive anything totally believe now I believe that too. I think it's funny with the doctors leaving the pads. It's like that's the biggest junky Jonky fantasy in the world. And it's and it's happening and you're so deep in your recovery that you didn't you didn't even consider it or maybe you consider them. It's like a joke in your head. Oh look at that time. It was offensive to me because it was like look. I told you I warned you that I'm an addict. So why are you doing. It would be like somebody just prescribing me Viking. And I'm like I just used old. You might come on man. Help me out here. But thinking of all the addicts whatever's Pat. I mean forty pieces like that's that's thousands of drug you prescribe for yourself own ridiculously. It's really ridiculous. So hopefully they take it a little. We're seriously now totally totally. I love that story. You're so so wonderful. To have on the show was off saying this is cool. I'm glad you had fun. So you had fun right. Yeah totally talk about myself. Well what's going on besides mom. What's coming up? What should what should the dopey nation? So so that's that's pretty much my main focus and I I'm developing a TV. Show that I can't really talk about yet but hopefully that'll come cup becoming out on Netflix. Within a couple years so we'll see what happens super cool And you should do that. One woman show. I would kill. Yeah we'll be part that part of the show. They were pitching. So we'll see what happens right on. Kristen thank you so much for coming on. Yeah great talking to you for me I will. I'll open the window and I'll say to my dad for you to you. Okay all right. Kristen thanks so much. Take bye-bye so that's a huge huge celebrity guests. Kristen Johnston from third rock from Massana. You impressed very impressed. He was she was good now as I said my old dear friend. Roddy Michael in with a crazy mushroom story. Ravi are you there I am but they kinda you're coming in and out just so you know but I'm here that's good do you. Have you ever seen third rock from the Sun. The woman kristen. Johnston was just on this show with you. Oh cool she yes. She's very very sweet she. He was a delightful person to talk to rob. I'm here to Robbie Long. Thanks Rob Thank you. Thank you so much. Debbie wants to get rid of me now but thank you thank you for the birthday wishes and loved it a whole family. Okay Rob's okay I'll give love Robbie I forget when you were on the show last time. Did you yell at everybody for not remembering that. The other order story was with you yet. No wait y'all Out Because Jimi still story now. Jeremy Stole Your Story. I thought still much story in Jeremy Stover story they both raped and pillaged. Your entire. Repertoire is terrible it's terrible. I can't like I'm a brown man and everybody gets by Shit and then doesn't even give me credit for it. I think he's a little bit crazy so thank you think. He's a little bit crazy. I think he's a lot a lot crazy. I love that guy and and I just want to say you know to Jimmy Right now. A lot of you and I'm really. I'm really sorry about Your Dad. Gyms Gyms Dad died so dopey nation. If you guys know Jim send prayers and love to Jimmy. You don't like me saying send prayers. Who cares that Ravi? Praise most most everybody. Everybody who's anybody praised. Anyway you want to hear a funny racial story. Robbie don't why are you GonNa take to your dad. He deserves it the deserve it. It's your dad. Do you want to hear a funny Rachel Story. You'RE GONNA love this story. God am I going to am I going to am I gonNa like cringe fringe fringe. I I hope not but I think it's a funny story so I wanNa tell you okay so I see all the time about Mayo racial stories for go so me me. I go to Gyms Dad's funeral on Monday and I'm standing there in our friend Ricky. Who happens to be black Comes and meets me. And we're standing outside the funeral home kind of talking for a little while and Ricky keeps wanting to go in and I keep telling him to hang out you know what I mean. I mean 'cause I didn't WanNa go into the into the funeral yet and we're standing there and there's very old woman with a walker walk. The crotch is up to ricky and says do you work here because he was standing in front of the door and he got so upset uh-huh I did cringe but I'm glad you told that story. Well the thing is but but I'm a white man. I'm a white Jewish man in America uh-huh tons of restaurants and stores where people ask me if I work there but I've never experienced life as a black man so I understand ricky's indignant Manson rage. Yeah but here's the thing like if you happen to be standing outside of any random restaurant or like Committee you were in a fatal Outta fricken wedding and then somebody said. Hey you know can you give me an hors d'oeuvre or hey can you open up the door for me. People don't think about it. It's like I have to deal with that. Shit pop this guy who was an old woman and she said do you work here and I quickly interceded and I said not yet. He doesn't and then when he got an ricky ricky's a renowned internationally renowned poet and writer so I think it fuels his amuse. If you will yeah yeah. I know the only way that you couldn't you can make great work is if I abused. Yeah from pain. Artists born from pain. We all know that right Because I know that is a very strange ironic thing that is true and I don't want to deal with it. Because how how then would you make you know. How do you not keep on replicating? The pain ain't exactly because I mean I personally. I don't think that all great art comes from pain. I think great art can come from love from humor. Listen Robbie say goodbye to my dad. He's gotTa get Outta here he's GonNa ruin the whole shot. Iraq take care all right so I mean some art is born in love and comedy and and also I mean pain makes the best comedy I think for me it does. Yeah yeah no pain makes come you know but it fascinating fascinating. I don't yeah you're right. It struggle struggle and beauty like deep appreciation of beauty makes makes greater have pain but there are some strange tension that folks look for even in their day-to-day lives to just drive towards. I don't know random quick. Attach itself to addiction anyway. Well I I mean lots of addicts may great art and lots of addicts aren't a lot of pain. So I mean I don't think it's the connection is not a linear connection it is. It's one of those things and I think like our friend Devon had to get the top knuckle of his pinky chopped off right fucking again and it looks crazy so he's missing the top of his Pinky and I'm convinced this will help his right. It'll give him some character. It's good pain is good. It's good good. I mean I wouldn't want to lose my fucking top of my pinky but this is good for him. Life was too good. Is God letting us know of the nine thing. Uh exactly now. If you don't know this Robbie this week was very exciting for dopey. We were featured on this other podcasts. But more importantly we were. You're in the top five podcasts about psychedelic mushrooms which is a huge honor to me mushroom. I'm actually outside right now looking at a Beautiful Green Lawn rain and I'm sure there are magic mushrooms and actually just regular my Mush in general. I don't know if you know this but t- today's my aunt we see today the chee. What always take us to look for mushrooms soon? He was an amateur microbiologist. So really I love mushrooms and I'm very happy for your Deliberation calibration that In the mushroom thing who would have known who would have thought that I would have one of the top five podcasts about mushrooms but the thing is that when i read this the only thing I was like we gotta hit them with a mushroom story and like I don't know for my money like one of my all time. Favorite favorite mushroom stories is our classic Mushroom Story. So I wanted to have you back on the show. I wish you were in town. But you're not in town. But how often do we get such an award. We need to celebrate. So would you hit the dopey nation with the Great Mushroom Adventure Story Begins Kim's at the table That you are at right now in Allen and Nancy's dining room table either kitchen table There was a whole bunch of guys..

"Did you feel a lot of pressure in that situation. Yes and you know who really saved my life is Joe Schrank I mean. He shrank frank he just got a dopey Tattoo. He just got what you gotTa Dopey Tattoo in remembrance of Chris. God bless him. Oh I know I love Joe Joe so when I first got out of Rehab all those years ago they said. Is there anybody in New York that you guys like that you could recommend and they we joe's number and furiously. He saved my life. He really did. I mean we became really good friends and he just you know we went to meetings together other. And he's just a great guy he really is and and you really shave my life and we're really good friends. Stay thank God. That's awesome so he helped to take take that kind of pressure off huge because he just would walk in you know he's a giant and he he just made you less self conscious about it and he sort of so mellow and dry every like I'd be like Oh my God I'm GonNa Freak out and be like whatever you get a hold of yourself. You sound like everything just sort of became Taeb really really helped me and also helped me Kinda get over my south. Because I think that's part of it too when you're like an actress and you're trying to get sober. You'd think it should be easier for you or there should be a different road. You have to take like why the focus it's like I'm an actress thing she'd be easier for me you know and he would just be like like shut up you idiot on. You just have to do all the work you have to do. The everybody's insane addiction. It really does it sort of makes everybody on and same even Keel. We're all human hothouses totally. I think it's an amazing. It's an amazing spiritual piece of the puzzle puzzle and it's also like built into the solution that like all of us are fucked and we and we need to fuck ourselves and we gotta do it. That's why a lot the times famous people can't really get the help they need because they go to the special place and the special meetings and everything special will and the whole concept of recovery. Is You know tumbling yourself powerless. You are all saying you know you with your pants on one later time like everybody else I think for some people. They can no longer grasp that so everything reading has to be like elite meeting and I have to go to the elite. You know addiction place and I had to do you know when you're not GonNa get you healthy do do you. It's counterproductive its counterpart. Is People snacks. So I think that's a great point and then in the book guts I was like why did she call it. God's I'm reading I'm reading all about you in the hospital and it still doesn't occur to me 'cause because destroyed stomach with pills. I'm like she's courageous. I just want a called Gods and then finally they clicked that kristen destroyed her stomach and she called the book guts. Because that's how smart I am. That's what that's what you're dealing with income but actually it. It's kind of a dual meaning. I mean it's like it takes a lot of guts to talk about addiction and of course but it also is about my guts. It's literally exploding so tell tell us about that like what happened. Oh well I mean you read the book. I read the book but I know I'm saying is your listeners. Listen I should read up. It's great but is sort of the brief version is that I was long term opiate addicts and I was in London at the time. Doing up play on the West End and we opened the show and I was still maintaining my addiction itchen with many many over the counter. Coding pills and I wasn't really. I didn't know what was happening. But unbeknownst to me I had a long-term ulcer and basically my it ripped open the night after we opened and I was pretty much awake and aware alone in my flat in London. What had happened it was like two or three? Am and what began. That moment was like my reckoning reckoning was the most aggie someone can suffer still be alive I think and I had to. Somehow you know whatever I'm not going to go into Gory Lori detail that I say that for the book began was my journey to sobriety and it took a long time and a very very dark few months in the hospital in London by myself. And that's what the book is really about some dark night of the soul. I call it the Dark Knight. That happens all of us where we have this reckoning with ourselves. Yeah I think when you come out of it like I think if I remember this correctly what you did is kind of similar to what a lot of us do where we think we have it under control and then we don't and and you got back to work and then all of a sudden when you're buying pills again you know while was drinking. It was like that night. I mean I was like okay. I changed my life Blah Blah and then I went out for drinks. Because that's all all I understood like you do play go out for Greek stats what you do right. And so I went out and had a drink. I remember going home that night. uh-huh like ninety pounds. I just got out of the hospital. I was dying. I was literally dying and I was like I will not stop on my own. Like I'm not gonNA grow out of it. It's not gonna like all send something else is going to take over four. It doesn't matter where I am. It doesn't as a matter who I'm dating and it doesn't matter where I live. I am a rug addict and nothing is going to stop it. Nothing unless I get some help. So that's what I did and you went any wound up going flying back to the states for that. Yes yeah well I love that and I also love the tiffany you have in the bed and the fireworks are going off. It's just it's just because I remembered occurring hiring me. Oh my God. There are people in that crowd there. People walking this earth who are not obsessed with drugs who are not counting their pills. Who are not brought to you? Wear their next hits coming from. There are people who are simply watching. Fireworks are celebrating their birthday or having dinner with friends and it had been so long since I just had a simple moments. That wasn't about my addiction that I realized that and I was like. I don't want the city more I don't WanNa live like this anymore totally addict. Were you always getting them from doctors or did you have to come from places like did you ever mostly doctors. As I said. When I was in London it was over the counter? It was like you know five hundred deals or whatever it was tracy was mostly doctor shopping. And you don't stop. I would stop for sometimes for like a month to artist here. You know but it but it was mostly doctors. Yeah do you remember ever not being able to get what you needed and going into withdrawal. Oh my God all the time. So what would you do. Do you ever have to get it off the street or go to someone you knew figure out like I go to the Er look. I don't want to share too much. Because it gets gives people idea. I know they all know I didn't go to the streets. I think things were as regulated as they are. Now this is what really concerns me about. How regulated Pain pills are now. I mean opiates because I think it's creating just way save more heroin addicts and you know. Get a street drug addicts as opposed to grappling with the actual issue of addiction. They're just simply take taking the supply away which is creating anyway. That's a whole other show but but no I didn't. I've never shot heroin or done anything like that but I sure would have to go. I walk probably would have no and I mean I think there's a certain longevity two a year using that worked because you were you know the doctor was the hookup and it keeps a lot of them had like twenty doctors. It was crazy Z.. It's also denial how much I spent like. I can't even think about it totally but it also lends to the denial that you talk about like because you're not in the street you and you. Are This incredibly successful actress. who gets their drug of choice and very like civilized way kind of like it makes was part of it? I mean I never really consciously thought that I really was I. Yeah I think that was probably part of it. I think a lot of pill addicts. Tell themselves they're like well. Let's describe so it's fine code. I think for me I knew I was into many and taking the wrong way not as directed. I was pretty aware are fucking up but I didn't WANNA stop. No no I understand. I didn't WANNA stop forever. The other. The other thing that I loved in this book is like you're like done with the show and you're not sure what you're going to do and you're at your agency and you're just talking because you're a great talker and someone's like you should write a book. Yeah and and you didn't have a writing sample. But she read an email of yours and that was where the booklet power. I love the tool actually forgot what about that. Yeah that actually happened. Yeah Weird and she said this is what the book should be about. Just happened to be about addiction. I never set out to write about my diction I really didn't I was going to do more of a David Sedaris like you know funny stories about how I grew up and all of a sudden I started. I was like well. I'll tell a little bit about the addiction and and all of a sudden it just took off from there so the whole book became focused on that. And how hard was it too right. Did it come out. Quick was easy to know. It was really hard. I mean it was hard because I cared so much about it and I did you know myself. And I designed the cover and I put the whole thing together and so it took a year and a half but it was you know a law like a lot of focus and a lot of effort went into it. I loved it. I mean I really had a great time doing it. I love to it was it was a great great read for me. Great Listen I listened to it so I got to hear you do an amazing array of accents from mid West to Cockney to London and I really enjoyed that thanks and I really be. It's the audio book is very very much performance. Did you feel like doing kind of thing I really did. And you know we actually developed a one woman show on it for a long time.

"But that's what I was trying to say. I really didn't we use on the set. It was more after work and weekends and stuff like that Maybe the last year of the show it started to bleed into the show itself a little bit for me but I really did try to keep it separate. I was very highly functioning so but you know honestly everybody knows was when you're when you become an addiction. An attic that is it takes over your life. And so any joy happiness fulfillment goes was out the window and so basically all I can really describe a bad time is my whole life centered around my addiction and so I don't don't really have that many great stories or anything other than just you know just the fact that I I I serve Sir kept a lid on it enough so that by the time third rock ended. I still maintain somewhat of a reputation. You shouldn't a workable actress and you know what I mean. I guess you're a quota you're like the quote unquote functional addict you function. Yeah and and use a shame because it is way better to be a non-functioning advocates you crash and burn so much faster I was. I was a non functioning addict and and I crashed and burned over but I did it over and over again for twenty years. You try to get better. You think of it that way. That's pretty bad too. But I remember we're reading and guts you talking about John Lithgow saying that he was aware that you were facing these demons so it must've been it must've been on you even if you weren't in fucking shooting more than sure. Yeah I mean look. I was so skinny and depressed. I mean it really. Is it really. I don't know which which came first the depression or the addiction. Or what said what I don't know but they both go hand in hand and they were God what I was. It was a dark time. It was a really dark type. And it's the weirdest because of course it's a time when you're the most celebrated in everybody thinks your life is awesome. And you know you go home to this light or show no and you are just. That's the thing that I think. That was hardest to me. And when I'm so love about being sober is not being a fraud anymore right. That's what I felt like for so long I am such a fraud. I'm such hypocrites and so getting so were and learning how to tell the truth to myself into everybody around me God. It's such a relief. I mean it was so title makes me so happy to be able to do it so I mean. There's so many things in your book that I loved. I want to jump ahead. I don't want to jump ahead but when you talk about rigorous honesty and you say it's probably some snobs yachts name. They named their vote after rigorous. Honestly I I think the thing that's hard about for people or twelve step meetings the phrases if they start to lose their meaning once you say shit five million sometimes and by wrote so there are things like the actual you know the idea. Rigorous honesty is is sucking great and so brave. Even if you really think about what it must be rigorously honest but the freeze itself is so overused in those meetings that starts to lose as its impact. You know I mean this morning I I work at a Deli in Manhattan right and and I had to go into the daily talk to my boss about something that's going on and and I was worried that I wasn't going to get home to do this interview and my friend is like just tell them. Tell them you gotta do an appointment for work. You know what I mean and I I. I said I can't do that. I said I because rigorous honesty you have to fucking tell the truth and what I wound up saying. I didn't say I'm going to go work on my podcast. Instead of work for you and interview Johnson. I said I have an appointment. But that's still regards honesty right. Yeah Oh course because what you would have done back in the day I would have come up with some elaborate shits that you would have had to like talk about for the next month and then it would become this horrible thing. You would Adam makeup and you know what I mean. My whole life was ally like when I didn't even have to lie when I was using. I would Li- like I would make up stories stories of like what I had to do that night. As opposed to seeing a friend or whatever and I mean console elaborate and so full of Shit that it just it it just starts to do you wake I woke up and Rehab and I literally no longer was able to tell the truth on what it meant. What you know? Actually say what I'm doing today. I mean who does that but once you start doing it. It's really great. It's much easier so much easier just to say what's going on. One of my favorite things in the book was in the very beginning. And I think you were in your. You're basically talking about your pre theater ritual. 'cause you're a superstar of the stage and screen but the theater where you from and you said that you take red red lipstick and you write on the mirror. This is the main event. Yeah and and I was walking down the street when I heard you. Say That uh-huh because I listened to the book and You Great Great Narration. I totally recommend everybody listens to this book and it made me realize that what that means is that every minute is that right. I mean that's how I felt. In that moment I was like Holy Shit. I better pay attention because this is the main event you know what I mean. I mean I took me a long time. I don't want to really have to did you anymore. But for a long time even when I got sober it was like I was always looking towards the next thing like okay. Why be at dinner with friends? But afterwards I had to do this and then and tomorrow I've never presence and sort of trying to train yourself so that like my life right now is about talking to you on your podcast podcast and that is it. That's all I can handle right now. I'm sitting here in my house talking to you. So that's all that matters and in ten minutes or half hour whatever happens will happen and I don't know starting to learn how to do that. Has Man it's so it's so cool so much better. Did you ever think of becoming a self help guru like Russell brand type or anything. No no no. I don't know I yeah I mean. I'm so flawed and I'm still I still such a work in progress and I've definitely writing another book so that's been taking awhile and I love. I love acting and I found this show off right now which is about addiction and recovery. And I really love reaching people that way so you know my life is pretty great. I don't really WANNA do South. How is also I don't think we need any more right. I think it's a calling. You know what I mean. I was joke. I was just making fun of you. I didn't think I didn't think they were gonNA tell okay. I know but I think it shows how funny that you can't tell but that's okay very dry right which is good. It's over the phone. It's hard to I know next time you're in New York. You gotta come in in person definitely but I mean I think self help nope and I don't I like to mock Russell brand because he's so hysterical and now he's so committed to self help but it's a calling. I think somebody does. Because they think they're supposed to and another thing about what he helps a lot of people around and I think he he has a really cool take on recovery. And I love that. I think he's brilliant. I just think it's funny that he's this fucking brilliant comedian whose now swamy in front of a white turban. I know I remember back when he was you know. simply a sex addict Larry S but yeah I know I follow him on twitter and he's he's he's really interesting and I love his takeout addiction. And I really think it's I see out here in La. I don't know if you guys have it in New York. It's called refuge. Recovery agree. Have you ever heard of it. I think we had the dude we had. The DUDA Levine on the show in the very early days. Yes well I I love it. I mean as far as twelve cents go. I think it's a really great thing you can Google at a p if anybody's interested but it's sort of a but kind of Buddha Buddha style I really I think it's a cool way of looking at it and more I think a little more modder than than spread. Bill W cake so you. Do you do refuge more than A. Na whatever yeah you know at this point now I I really just take newcomers to meetings. Thanks and stuff but I would go to. I don't have a whole year anymore but it's been a long time so pleasant. Do this show the Sitcom mom where it's really I mean. It's very focused on recovery. And it's weird because we have these meetings he's not we fell and I mean they really feel kind of real. I know it's not really that so it's kind of feels like the way check in with my addiction every day and I do it for my job kind of like you do your podcast. So it's kind of another great way staying sober funny when you're on mom Tom. Do you ever have to share in the meeting and then feel shame from your character share. Does that ever happen. Yeah of course that's awfully awfully but it's also weird because I'm the only cast member WHO's actually in recovery sadly so people are always asking me like oh it meetings do inserted like the the person they're right. Well we don't do this and this would be weird to do that. You should charge an extra rate for being the effort for a lot of the writers are in recovery so they got it but I just saying as the actors they asked all the questions. Kinda funny no I think that's cool Wa- I think it's very interesting where everybody you know like you said everybody's addicted to something and so many people are just addicted to drugs and alcohol. Aw that recovery in in media in TV in wherever in movies it's very natural and it's part of our story very and I think it's cool went when shows do it right. You know and from what I understand you guys do it right and I think that's awesome. Yeah I think we do. I mean the great thing about it is it's I I mean. Look it's not going to save stabilize. I don't know but what what for me what was so great about mom and why I loved it even before I joined the cast is is it really. It shows you. You can still like laugh in recovery. Because when I was I thinking about going to a or getting sober I mean I just pictured do you meant gloom and like sitting in a church basement with a bunch of like old man wanting to drink i. I was so depressed at the idea that and sort of what mom does is it shows you still like how fun and be fucked up and have a great time and yeah no totally totally. When you first I went to meetings and stuff and you were famas? What was that like? was that terrible. was that excruciating. Yeah it was pretty bad. It was pretty bad. I mean all like anonymity thing goes out the window and people would bring scripts and stuff to me. It was weird and uncomfortable but I I kept going. So that's what I say to people. Look if people are like I'm embarrassed to go and I'm like I'm I went. Everyone knows who the fuck I happen. I walked in there. You can go there so that kind of wakes people up but it's so different now though it really is I mean I mean it's such a now it's more. She's so much more acceptable and okay'd be in recovery now but it also must be a trip to be an early early recovery and have people know who you are. Because you don't know that you're going to get any time you don't know that you're gonNA actually get anywhere and recovery and you're the person in who fucked up or whatever..

"And then that's the other thing I just wanted to get out of the way. I just read Kristen's book guts. The endless follies and tiny triumph. Am of a giant disaster and it took me weeks to realize how the title really worked in the books. I'll I love that. And one of the things. Kristen talks about how tall are. Are you six feet. So you're not that tall but she was just height when I was twelve so it was. I mean they thought I was like a giant. It really good so I I felt like a freak most of my life right which is how a lot of us have felt. And that's why it's called a giant disaster right yes. I love that my dad. My mom was very tall and my dad loves women so when I said she said she's the tall when he was only complimentary. I don't want you to think like Tall Tall Gal door tower. I wasn't offended at all. No tall that's part of. That's that's part of who I am honestly I never think about it and never really occurs to me unless I'm with someone super short and then I'm like Oh my God I've been down to talk to you but usually I just ignore it right well. My Dad's thought so whatever. I'm not trying to set you up breath. I'm not trying to make this weird like no no. No Dad turned seventy seventy six today. You could do much better than my aging all right But you were just talking about being high on third rock which is a great place to start. What was that like while honestly while we shot not high but that is when I started? My addiction was like you know after work started. It started so so slowly as you know everybody listening knows it's so insidious it doesn't start usually overnight. You know it's just one of those things that like you know you you meet you meet your to your drug of choice and then you sort of grapple with it for like five years before you become fully committed to it so that was so you know I met met. Opiates on third rock for actually a legitimate reason I I was getting migraines and you know I'll never never forget the first time they gave me a shot of morphine at the Er and I literally was like. Oh this is totally the answer. I can't believe I finally discovered Robert The answer to life and so that was that in that so but for for about five years after that I just sort of you know. Try Talk about in the book like a like a really like a bad boy. A bad guy like you know you're just like you try to break up with him you're like he's abusive bad relationships you dumping for a couple of weeks and then you eventually like succumb. That's why I really became like fully addicted probably took me like ten years to become. You know a really bad junkie but but while I was on third rock is when I starts become a hot mess so totally and you were in from the book from whatever I I know about it was that you were a great alcoholic or a great drinker in high school were there intermediate drugs between alcohol and needing opiates. It's for your migraines in the third period now really I've never really been into pot and like a coke. Didn't I mean I definitely did coke later in my addiction addiction just sort of socially but I really was just opium. It was first alcohol and then it was. Opiates those were just nicotine. I mean let's not Getting nicotine was part of it but my two worst addictions were alcohol and opiates right mind. Maybe tried and dabbled in and but never never seriously so when. When did you expect like you had a migraine on the set of third rock and some doctor was like what was that story exactly now? Well well this was back. I mean this was twenty years ago so it was so different back then I mean seriously like I can't believe how much our understanding of addiction has changed changed. I mean back in the day twenty years ago like out here in la like every doctor would shoving killers at you like no one really really understood. It was an issue at that time really and it just it was everywhere so I mean I went. I mean basically I think I had had a Migraine and then I got a shot at the Er and then like two weeks later. I had another one and I went to Iraq and that that's started that whole dance of like doctor shopping. I mean for like a good ten years. My addiction was fully funded by Dr the shopping because literally each doctor would give so many. I mean now it's so different and they're so it's so ooh It regulated by the government but back then they would you like prescriptions for five hundred bucket at. I mean literally right right so thank God things have changed but back then it just was so easy to become an addict because things were so different but Yeah so that's an forgot. Even you're I think that's a great. I love it in the book. Because you describe basically the way a drug addict feels when they do an opiate versus the way a normal person feels and I know for me like I didn't. I don't have the great excuse to say that Lake doctor shopped. Or anything like that. I just wound up like doing doing heroin a couple of times until I loved it and then like I would have to like get pills by default but the similarity is that when when it last I could tolerate the throwing throwing up and insanity of getting high on heroin. I felt exactly that same thing. Like this is the answer to all of my problems. And I think that's that's just like the bottom similarity between all addicts if they're if they're on pills or they're on heroine there on coke or whatever. Yeah well that's why I was was that's kind of one of the driving forces of writing guts because I grew up in a family like my mom does not understand addiction at all like she. It has its I think. She's had one glass of wine in her life like she does not get it. And so and I'm surrounded by people. Don't understand it I mean either people are Addicts or they have no understanding of addiction or at least this is the way used to be so writing. God's was really part of that I wanted people who were not addicts six to understand and relate to it and relate to addiction because everyone is addicted to something everyone. It doesn't always have to be drugs. It can be work irk women you know whatever. It is plastic surgery. I don't care so I really wanted people to understand. You can look at Courtney love and judge her. I'd be like oh I'm so different than her. But the bottom line is you're not different than her. Your addiction just manifest itself in a totally different way so anyway anyway. That was kind of why really wanted to write the book so that my mom would finally understand what addiction really felt like and did she like how did it go with no uh no. He's still doesn't really understand it. I mean she tries really hard for her. You know she's a different era two different generation and she really just honestly prefer she would just rather no one ever talked about it like you know she just really would rather I'd kept my mouth shut and she's really really supportive like of act my acting career and he is a person really closed but addiction is something she just refuses to try to understand dance so I think that's funny. I've been doing this podcast for like four years and my dad has been on a lot and my dad lived through. You know my partner the Chris Dying while we were making the show and another friend dying while we were making. I remember when that happened. I'm really sorry I remember reading about that. It's really bad God. Yeah yeah but that's I mean that's the story of addiction and Mia Dad though still says like. Can't you fix that or you know he. This does not I mean and I'm making fun of my dad but I think you're right. I think it's an addict mine has a has an understanding versus nor me or non attic attic mine. I mean look. It's even hard for me as someone who really understands empathizes and is very up close and personal with addiction. I have another another luxury another family member who is dying from it right now and I'm so angry at her and I had this like this part of myself that is so judgmental towards her and so pissed at her for not working hard or not but the bottom line is it's so different for every person you know. I mean some people for whatever miracle happen I figured it out or I got it. But that doesn't mean it's not willpower. It it has nothing to do with that somehow like the perfect storm happened where I was able to get it and for my loved one. It's she can't for whatever reason she cannot do it or maybe she just can't yet. You know what I mean like. I never thought I was going to be totally totally. I'll never give up. It's just it's so brutal you know being on both sides like being one of an addict and being an addict I honestly don't know which is a greater how I really don't don't show it's so awful for both well. It's funny because neither of us. I mean neither the addict nor the family member has any fucking control. You know what there is nothing that I mean. That's very very frustrating. I bet you I think it's equally frustrating. Because I can't imagine this because also the loved one has to to deal with that anger and the it's I mean it's and then but the advocates to deal with that shame and it's it's really. It's I really think you know. I'm so glad now that there's such a great understanding people are starting to really understand. What addiction is starting to? There's a a lot less shame in a lot less stigma but we have a really long way to go. I mean we're still throwing people in jail who are simply addicts and you know. I mean it's it's still really really difficult. Yeah and it's also just way way mysterious. I find that to be the most frustrating part just dealing with with listeners. Who who asked me questions or this or that and it's like dude you can try this but until you actually WanNa do it? It's nothing's GonNa work you know. Yeah but I mean you remember that dance I I danced with getting sober. I mean I can't believe this. I tried to convince myself and the negotiations I made with my addiction and the lies I would tell myself and other people so that I could keep my addiction alive. I mean it's just for me. It was literally came down to. I'm GonNa die like any day totally so that that's the only way it would have happened for me. which is terrible? I mean it's such a frustrating rating disease because it's the only one of the only diseases maybe dementia but it's one of the diseases were turns the sufferer into an unbearable. Arable asshole right so by the time you're ready to get so her a lot of times you don't have any support route laughed you have nothing really left to get sober therefore which is just so brutal right no totally I mean I never even think about that and I have a family member who suffers dementia. And it's it's so oh sad because you struggle with with them. You know what I mean. And it's like it's easy to lose focus on what the hell is happening but I want to back up. I WANNA backup up to Your Your glory third rock from the Sundays and if you were using on the set then what did that look like and what did the cast..

And then John Cheese and eggs to and then I cleaned up the whole kitchen and then all of a sudden he's making lunch and messing up the whole kitchen again but the lunch was good to tell them about the lunch. Lamb Burger lamb burgers with spinach avocado. Fateh again and and what else I think. That's a little more parmesan cheese. It was it. It was excellent excellent. But I don't see how it could be healthy. I don't understand that part I don't know either I don't do. I look like some kind of scientists to you absolutely not but I think I've lost like like I want to say I've lost eight or nine pounds. No that's really good. I guess but I'll probably die of heart disease. flipside why can't you go back to moderation ration- with the usual way of eating. It's like saying why can't you do some drugs. Why can't you just smoke weed? This is why can't you just have a glass of wine with dinner. A Uh these are the stupid questions are always asking correct. Can we get to the more Sta. Yeah the summit of dopey stories on the adobe before you even get to that you want to hear something very interesting Rabbi Asher g you remember at the end of the episode yesterday a and I read that e or last week and I read the email from the dude who's friend died not banned and Nash. It was like we can. We remind it doesn't no matter very sad story but it turns out they had stayed at ashes halfway or Rehab or sober living or whatever. Oh Wow coincidence. Maybe maybe it's a coincidence or maybe it was fate all right. What else you got? Well you were on the podcast with a Harris whittles sister. I was on this week. On last day. PODCAST had cast they did a whole special on dopey which Super Cool No. I thought it was really very very good and And she was terrific. You were terrific also and then all of a sudden and I remember that when you interviewed her The funny thing the funny thing though is that when she was on Dopey My Dad calls me every week week to tell me how much he didn't enjoy aspects of the show and when Stephanie Whittles Axle. It's true I say positive things also right when Stephanie Whittles Battles Wax was on Dopey my dad. Why did you give her a fucking infomercial? When she was on the show? I did miss the most. I didn't use the language like that. Of course it's like what are you. What are you doing much more polite? And I didn't say that and then he explained to me was like mutual that they would do it back and forth with each other. Why don't you continue? And then it worked out and we got this beautiful episode about Dopey Ana on the last day right. Although my dad did complain that they didn't say dopey enough that's true. They didn't say Dobie enough they should have but but it was a very nice piece and we enjoyed collaborating with the folks at lemonade. A media. Well anyway all right so then the point that I'm trying to make why don't you make thank you. What are you waiting for it? Well I guess I have to be all right. Here's the point. It reminded me that when you and Chris were interviewing her Stephanie Widows Whacks Correct Kris was incredibly rude to her and I commented to you what the heck is. What is Chris doing there and that should have been another reminder underway? Something was wrong at that point. He was even. I mean they had Chris kind of being a Dick with her on the show. Yeah I know he was being a Dick about her with me he was like mocking it. Exactly but you know I mean listen. I liked that whole episode. I liked them showing me and Chris kind of snide in the beginning beginning. 'cause like it was real I know and I don't know we don't know for a fact that he was using them or not sure was a different different personalities shown than than it did in the prior broadcast orcas. Chris had a thing whereas the night got longer he retired he would get tired. He would get aggravated I after I listened to that last day and And I cried during that show With Todd and with Chris And it made me listen to a couple old episodes of dopey and and and one of my favorite old episodes of dopey is when we first bought the house and Chris went to record in the house and its bursting with life and energy energy and it feels good. I think it's one thirty one. If you're interested I think one thirty one thirty two are two of my favorite dobie episodes. We were recording in the house. Another a huge thing. That happened this week on the show is that we were voted the fucking number three greatest or maybe number four. Are you say five five. We weren't number five. I think we were number thirty. Finish what you're saying because I have another comment. We were the third best podcasts about silence. I have been about psychedelic mushrooms. Dad had an experience on psychedelic mushrooms. Never have you ever considered licking a guarani floor frog in a Buffalo Arrow frog. Doug never even know if I'm pronouncing that right. Probably not I'd say no so you've never had if you've ever taken lsd no smoke GMT. Had thought to do you. It took an aspirin every night. When you were you were born in? What were you born? Nineteen forty four. Yeah so in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight that makes issue twenty four career and the PSYCHEDELIC. Revolution is raging around you. I missed you are a square. Absolutely you never you never turn on cream and dropped acid smoke pot. What were you doing playing basketball? That's it pretty much all right. So what do you have to say about us being in the top five podcasts about mushroom ah for you correct me but it was actually two thousand eighteen. But what you're saying is they haven't come up with the two thousand nineteen results yet so that's must be the current current current one. which is I don't want to say? Is that very impressive. That you're number five. I think we were number three. And Joe Rogan. Who has the number two podcast in the world was number one we have? We're not even charting. We're not even charging so we're top five podcast. We're number three on three of the other. Men Nominees are award ease or something. Think are within the top two hundred podcasts of all time so we push US puts us in as they say rarified air. No joke wow does this mean something to you announced sure does and the people at Magic mosher whatever the fuck was called. I WanNa thank you guys and I want you to do another list. I in fact number one nine. Come on well come on. If we're lucky my buddy my friend Robbie is gonNA call in and tell his crazy mushroom story but Robbie is notoriously irresponsible. He's also Washington state abortion. So who knows other other news so the Kito is happening. I'm working like a dog last night. A A prominent recovery personality texted me and asked me if I would have this author on the show and she said I'm so famous. Okay should I'm so fucking famous. This woman Anna David. Yeah and and I was like I was like I'm so famous. I was in Pennsylvania yesterday Shoveling Coleslaw Potato Salad all day so I don't think famous people do that. What did you think want you to do? She wants she wants me not somebody one of her friends on the show some author all right. Yeah it's Nice. Why what are you worried about? I don't know who is David. You know who she and David is an author She is a businesswoman and entrepreneur in recovery. Who's been on the show before nice? Nice very nice terrific well but more importantly coming up.
