"Kind of thing with Wallace. Shawn. In India that episode in SPLAT. That's what I. Have to say about excellent city. Sam Have you seen the broken, hearts. Club. My God on the Broken Hearts Club I believe. So either either memory. This is so weird. Memory of being a I'm GONNA date myself here but I when I was A. Teenager when I was probably fourteen, I had a netflix subscription back when Netflix was strictly a DVD delivery service and use this to. Sort of circumvent what otherwise might have been parental supervision an order movies that I would not like I i. would I would have a more challenging time getting access to otherwise and I remember very clearly ordering the broken hearts club from Netflix. And I remember being in possession of that DVD and feeling very, very excited to have this this this queer experience and yet I do not remember the movie at all I don't remember anything about the movie but I remember the exhilaration knowing that I was about to watch the broken hearts club and this is sort of other. Era Maybe shortly after I would painstakingly download pirated episodes of queer as folk off home like Napster Kazaa whatever the like the service was at the time and the files were always so big and I was on dial up. Internet. So take like seventy, two hours to download one. And I was just like save or so so so excited. To get to watch the Zozo. Bernard stuff was like one of those early on gay media things that I was just. So stoked to get my hands on and yet I couldn't tell you one thing about it. Which I guess tells me that probably ratchet may be tonight well, maybe maybe and maybe I should do the same I bring it up because skipper is in it I. Think I forget his. Ben Weber, but skipper is in is so about a group of get using like hockey, right? Yes. But I also have a semi I've vague memories of it and I confused it with love valor compassion and yeah. It is not love valor compassion. Yes. So the so skipper is one of the the Group of friends that the movie revolves around and his entire thing is that he's unattractive that is his entire character. ARC is. Just. He's the ugly one in the friend group, which is ridiculous because he's adorable. It's very cute. Yeah. The the okay. So the rest of the Group of friends now now realizing why I need to Rewatch it's Dean Cain, who is now gonNA speak the Republican National Convention. Billy Porter. who now is how daily Porter Yeah?.

"For Kerry for for look refer her you know the the big or the. Fill in the blank relationship of it. Oh. Well I sort of myth skipper like we we lost skipper. Thank you so much. I feel like we need to put some respect on skippers name. Skipper was a vital part of season one. We got a little bit skipper in season two, and then we just drop skipper completely I sort of like the the roughness of. The first and second seasons I think where? It was not quite so. Self aware and so slick carries direct address to camera and the like frequent direct address to camera sort of breakout are very weird and feel like they belong to a totally different kind of stylistic universe than what the show ultimately became. And? Yeah I, like the roughness of those early seasons although I will say any my favorite episode of sex in the city is. What I think is the third to last episode of the show Splat where Kristen Johnston goes out the window. And and then I think that that's the episode that ends with. Kerry and Miranda's climactic argument before Kerry goes to Paris there's something very raw an anguished in carries. A of plea to Miranda about like how all her friends lives sort of like moving on and moving forward ads she's dislike stuck in the same place doing the same things that she's been doing for the last however many years six seasons. If you will and it's very pointed and it feels very raw and it's just like a great the city moment but also I mean I think my favorites characters are. Skipper seems to. And then. CARRIES EDITOR AT VOGUE ENID? Played by the inevitable candice? Bergen. Who I think appears for the first time in season four maybe season five and then has that great a.

"We are back with Sam Lansky Low Sam. Hi How are you? Where are you? What's going on at home in Los Angeles I. What is going on I? Mean that's a that's a big question. I think it's it's quite a year. It's quite a moment What is going on for me right now is a Monday morning I'm delighted to. Be here with you. Both Big Fan, excited shabby deals. And Yeah I. That's what's going on I. Think I think like stoked to be here stoked appropriate we'll talk about everything. So talk about everything there is on the docket. Great how are you staying? Cool. We are in record heats. Right now. I'm so like arenas up because it's something that I really like to talk about. I moved about two weeks ago from the apartment that I'd been in. The all the five years that I've been living in. Los Angeles and I moved into a new place that has for the first time in my adult life. Central Air. And this? Day deal for me. I have never felt more than I have never felt more. I hesitate to say rich like I'm not rich but I gotTa tell you messing with a thermostat on the wall that is rich bad there. There's there's a decadence to it that is unparalleled. It feels like very rich behavior to to be like I'm going to change the temperature and do that in a way that feels like I have total control i. am I just like at the helm of my own future my own comfort in a way that I never imagined it would be possible for me so Congratulations, I, feeling like. Thank you so much. I. Feel like like a Victorian heiress or something like there's just sort of glamour and luxury to the way I'm living now that I imagined. Possible. So that's wow I'm think where are you both you're both in la? Yeah we're in yeah. Matt is East side I am in the valley where it is that much hotter. Yeah, it's it's hotter over there. Power you beating the heat I would like to from both of you on the subject. I mean look. We'll go straight into pool bragging I. Guess Because that's what we were talking about our the interview I'm sorry to play that card right out the gate. But that is what we were literally talking about for you. You jumped on that. Yeah I think for both of us. I I think in general it's fine for Covid wise people to swim in your pool as long as you're still practicing all the social distance rules and everything but we have sort of take on a policy where it's. It's open like this is a brutal time. We're all looking for something to do. We're all hot and suffering like if you WANNA come swim. Smith. But now it is it has gotten where have like schedule people and I feel like I'm running a membership situation where I'm just. Like putting people in slats. And it's frequent enough that I am also telling friends like please come over I won't be hanging out you just come in let yourself into the gate. Please knock if you need to use the restroom, don't do it in there. But otherwise I won't be you. Can't be at the pool in the pool all day. No I recently re watched the episode of sex in the city where. Samantha. Scams her way into. So House by. and. Gets access to the bull by pretending to the NFL Bronstein when she finds Annabel Brunson's membership card in the Soho House bathroom, and that's what this is giving these shades up. It's like you are you are a sort of operating a so how's meatpacking district rooftop pool of your own and it's And it's fierce and people want in and only installed survive. It's pretty much I'm doing exactly the same thing friends come by we basically, just kind of say you know. The call is one PM and and people show up. We have with some friends with with a nine year old kid. A girl who since lockdown you know she's This is sort of our like pod like the people who we've, who's yards we've been bouncing around to you know Kinda small group that we know are staying tested and all that Kinda thing. And it's it's fun for us but this nine year old girls you know five closest friends are all men in their forties now and that's going to be that's GonNa have developmental ramifications I think and I hope that they're good. But we'll see. I. Guess. I think it's to be great informative for her yeah I think. So. Sam We go back to sex in the city. Are you are you having a renaissance within a? Did you happen to catch an episode frequently or what's your relationship with? I understand that. Through a contemporary lens sex in the city is problematic. In many ways I am aware of this. It's not stopping me from really digging back in and embracing it. It's been a vital part of my quarantine, a survival strategy I basically just watching it on a Lou. And I. The more I, watch it. The more I think it's like us the greatest show of all time like I think the storytelling his so lean, efficient and economical. The fact is absolutely like twenty minutes and there are usually four full self contained stories each with their own arc crammed into a twenty minute episode, but they always feel. Fully realized end and like how wonderful kind of flow to them The writing is so sharp and Funny I. Just I, Love Sex in the city I don't I don't know what else to say beyond that other. An evangelist. As in I I'm so. Glad to meet a like minded person but. do you have a.

Place in Heart for the silver underwear and the shirts because they're naturally anti microbial, which means they eliminate odor and Also, if you don't like your first pair of underwear, which isn't going to happen, you can keep it and they'll still refund you no questions asked.

Before we get into are are very special surprise interrupt guests here should we lead this little story that came? Let's do it. Join just to catch you up. It's meek you season here homophobia we've just started a sharing meet. Cute. And this is our first one. Sentence by a listener and we're just going to read it Raw Colbert. Unprotected. Hi. Matt Dave, it's too bad. I couldn't get together for a flesh hunger story, but I'm glad to put my meet cute out into the world a few years ago on fourth of July, I needed to get out of my apartment and away from my roommate's since not much was open and I was getting ready to move into my own place. I decided to hit up target and start making a list of things that I would need man. While looking at a desk. I. Noticed a cute guy quote looking at lamps on quote who spending more time looking at me. We can catch each other staring until it was so awkward that I couldn't take it anymore. I finally said furnishing a new apartment really sucks and ran away luckily I didn't go too far kept checking each other out in. The end caps from several miles away until we both ended up looking at sheets together you finally started an actual conversation and I realized he wasn't really cute but also nice I found out. He lived not far from me and I was kind of hoping for a little action. So I finally gruesome balls said, do you want to get out of here? Dave what happened next? Well, tell you instead of inviting me back to his place. He asked if I wanted to split a pitcher of Sangria at a nearby Mexican restaurant I agreed we checked out and we went up the road over drinks. We realized that he knew my best friend and I heard stories about him before on top of that I knew some of his co workers through my connections. In the Improv scene, we were destined to meet and kept saying that we should have met a lot sooner at a party or bar but instead, we were blessed with a meet cute at target. We dated for three weeks before deciding we made better friends and we're still close to this day. We love to tell people how we randomly met at the most successful trip to target. We have ever had thanks for your podcast and your contributions to the Queer Community Lucas v NPA. Lucas. Thank you. Thank you. Lucas targeted Cairo's speaking of contributions to the queer community. Yes. Jonathan. can I just have you introduce yourself your work not a very special project and I frantically demanded that you get here right away with very little notice Can you tell us what you're up to? Absolutely. So Hi, I'm Jonathan Welsh. I bombed this episode about five minutes ago. So we walked we all know me. I'm joined by my partner on this project Alex Mohajer everybody. How are you good to? See You. It's my pleasure. So we are with the stonewall Democratic Club and we have launched this week, the National Voted Home Initiative. So among the things that we do at Stonewall, we decided to educate people on how to safely vote at home how to do it in such a way that basically their votes can't be denied. This is obviously a huge topic of conversation because we have the president constantly trying to belittle the action of voting by mail So we identified certain states that. that. We thought would actually need need to hear something from us. Right retargeted sixteen key battleground states and states potential Senate pickups for Democrats with their. Voter. Registration deadlines and vote by mail procedures and we booked in a pretty incredible roster of talent to do these videos for us that were distributing on social media and just targeting go states specifically. Who We get Jonathan we've got Debra Messing who did our non-euro Michigan Video? Yeah. We have Kirsten Johnston who was on third rock from the Sun and also we know her because she fell out of the window and sex and the city. Out For Kristen Johnston. rupaul drag race. Miss Congeniality Nino West and Michael Yuri from ugly Betty and pretty incredible roster. We also have Linda Carter the original wonder woman so we can't. We can't forget that. All the great. Yeah. That's right. So yes, whether you are are not in a battleground state, do you how do you recommend people vote this year? What is the safest most secure way about? Look because slowdowns in the US. Postal Service. We know the trump administration has launched a full on assault on vote by Mail on the voting systems that are required using debunks claims of voter fraud is a thing we know the studies have been done only hundred and seventy-five convictions of vote by mail fraud happened over the last two decades. So it's not a thing you can vote safely by mail but because of slowdowns if you're gonNa vote by mail, make sure you register to vote I.

"Well. Dave you. Yes. Sir fired up. And you report started reporting. You told me the you did something shocking. Can you share it with the audience? A bit you. You've been reading reviews an idea. Rene sense us. That's true. Yeah. Did go to the apple podcast page because we have been soliciting five-star reviews. We are literally begging for praise and compliments, which is though it's the name of the game. It's what you have to do. It does help people find the show it really does so it's unseemly but it has to be done long long long right. My book came out. Format book came out. When there were I don't know if I ever told you about this but there's a there's an Amazon program that I forget the name of where people who are who who loved to comment on who loved leave reviews on Amazon. Are Given the opportunity to give advance reviews of books. So. So they check off interests in whatever, and then they get sent advance copies of books and they get to review them, and so some of my early like advance answer views are very good and some were very bad because the people didn't like just weren't interested in the subject matter and then. They were like I don't know the songs that he's talking about. Okay. Okay. So the book is not for you put the shutdown know nobody didn't pay for it. You don't have to review it. And then I would click on the person and literally in one case. All Cat Toys and then my book and the Marquette Toys and then it's like you know somebody wrote a review of some motor oil and you know whatever? They dish and then my book and well like I don't I can't I didn't totally ranch and. I don't know that individual members of Duran Duran's didn't really work for me like I don't fucking do it. We mentioned this now because I then went to my agent and he said never read reviews knife that way lies madness the very good ones I will send you those the only went to need to read everything else. It'll just drive you nuts. So knowing this went apple podcasts, we haven't getting glowing reviews a very pleased about that, but a couple of people have. Left one stars and mentioned the fact that sometimes there are pauses. It's It's a pandemic we're not. It sounds really good as we work with really good people man and I are not in the same room and then when there is a guest that person. Isn't an easy Separate third room, sometimes different in a different building in a different part of town or even the country. I should say Dave's pauses when he started this rant were not because zoom those because he's so exasperated yet nerve of people but yes, it's true. It's like we're. Ryan is like. I it's A. Recording everybody's sound zoom recording and mixing it all together sometimes. Gets, off people freeze. Matt now start try to start talking at the same time, and then it's like then we're too polite about letting the other one go they're going to be positive. They're GONNA be positive. So we are doing our best we are recording resume. That is the way that it goes. Causes. Main. Yes and these interruptions right now that happened I thought you were pausing. The point is I. I am shocked that you were reading views because you have given me the same advice in your agent gave yes. Earlier on, I would read our reviews and inevitably they were all like I Love David. He's really he's areas. God not talks about Jennifer Aniston too much and he has done and it's like. Well, that's that's the premise of the show. So you're just simply standing backs that we on every signing up for that I not insulted by just like okay. So that's how you interpret it but since I don't give talks to you don't have. As an active self care only read a five star ones that rene sensors which brings going to be I'm going to be back to doing that but listen. We we understand occasionally there's GonNa be gaps there's going to be positive. We're this. We're not recording the way that we prefer to record which is across the table from another from one another with guest in the same room. If I'm just GONNA quote Alanis Morissette. Why are you so terrified of silence. Here. Can you handle this? Did you think about your bills, your ex, your deadlines. To die or did you long for the next distraction? I. I the point is it's it's If. An existential spiral. With with Zoom Wag. We're sorry get comfortable with your own silence people. She's on silence. We're all. Have to get there. Eventually you know what I mean that's exactly but but the is big. Let's go back to serve us. We have all I. Really Want is a five star review. Who We got who do we got?

Oh creep that. Our topic today. Well, you're an expert at. Your. Of Monitor calibration, right? Now. First of August before we even get started I did mention you are a photographer and and that's why I love how data color a lot of companies. Hiring photographers to come in. Right. So we photographers talking to photographers. So you know. So especially where trade shows. I saw the mutual friend Jerry from hunts photo exactly Yep you know. So when somebody comes up to you at a trade show, let's see you with Gerry. And they ask you, why do I need to have my monitor calibrated? Talking to them. As Well just work for the company you're talking to them as a photographer end as an expert that happened works the company right right. Awesome yeah. Yeah. So it's You know. That's a great point. You know data color. We have a very technical people on staff but we also have. People who are very passionate about photography. and. I think I I kinda classify myself as someone who falls into the middle there but but you're right. When you have a question about a technical product, it's It's not a technical pursuit at that point. It's it's a, it's a creative pursuit, your helping. You know I have the opportunity to help people understand about. calibration in Color Management and I begin with it from a photographer's point of view not from pursuit. And I did check out some of your work and that's why I asked to hear you do a lot of. Interior design and you mentioned you were. Those one of the stuff you didn't pass. You did a lot of interior designing stuff. Yep. That's what kind of transferred you order photography. Yes. So my my background in school was a bachelor degree in architecture, which is kind of heavy on space design, interior design layout type of thing, and I've kind of you know my career before data color I owned business for awhile sold that. But before I worked for data color I sold that business with the intent of becoming it fulltime interior architectural photographer. So I did work with you know interior designers, architects AD agencies and builders to help them showcase their their work. Um Great and so just. Most of us as a photographer, you had children. Become the subjects exactly I. I would say. Love landscape photography but you know most of what I do these days is you document the lives of of kids might be. I. Learned the basics of photography from my father and he was very passionate about photography a black and white darker our basement growing up and you know. It wasn't that he taught me how to be creative photography taught me about the importance of of photography in someone's life. Documenting documenting time with your cameras is just an important pursuit and he really that was the example he had for me. So it was really cool to grow up with that type of influence and to have a black and white darker in our basement carrying up. So I saw. You know develop ally. You know the smells of the darker are very. Small. I don't miss you know get my hands wet with chemicals but every now and then it just. I get I get the itch to. go back to the dark room but. Very Very Fond Memories Fisher. Well. That's great. Well, let's talk about Baader calibration who, what is it? What is monitor calibration? Yeah. So you know for transition of thinking back to the to the dark room you know there were very Specific things that you need to do to get your chemicals working right and you had to be in certain conditions to to work properly. In the digital age you know we have we rely on on our monitors. So I mean, we're we're photographers we we need to have We we trust our eyes to perceive the world around us. We trust our is to. take us through. The world and express ourselves creatively with our cameras.

"Favorite new segments of quarantine. We're doing hot takes again. It turns out. Other people have opinions. It's not just the three of us, and I am both relieved and a little worried that other people could contain this much rage, and then express this time. We're not doing pop culture hot takes. We're doing specifically queer pop culture. Hot takes so they should be extra pecan, and we are going to have our own opinions on these takes. I'm prepared to be mad about them. I have a flyswatter ready to SWAT at the bad hot takes, so we'll see how. Nice I mean I'm just naturally contrarian and I love fighting, so let's see what happens. Don Right Hi IRA. Lewis! My Name's Dominic from New Hampshire Mike Queer hot take is that killing Caesar is the thing that has ever been done so these people. They leave the city of Rome to have this like. Ceremony and they've been secretly plotting to kill Caesar for months. Talk about stunt and they walk into the room. They distract Mark Anthony How camp and they go six hundred per. and. Caesar, who like is like the epitome of camp. It's all about spectacle and like just like I'm GonNa wear these things that are totally taboo and like I'm GonNa. Be Like Oh king who? Amazing, and they tend to arenas, bitch, and then they kill him and stop him a bunch of times, and his reply isn't like how it's nothing. He looks at his friend Brutus and just goes at two time. He's like even you. Like that we're dating. Come on, you know there's something more than that. They were friends with Benny's at least. Anyway. Though it was the Anna created. Like civilization of all time, because like what's Gayer than a gladiator match nothing so that was pretty gay, Pretty Queer, and despite all of that, it wasn't a steak. Boise's deserve to live. I think all right. Thanks guys. When he said the words killing Caesar for a second thought, there was a Bill O'Reilly book. I didn't know about, but secondly. Her. Waller Bridge, spinoff, killing Eve right now. Is there a car? Does Villanova brother I don't know about? Yeah. If you're going to be killed in an ambush in Rome and yet, you still have a witticism about you. I I have to respect what can only be described as queasiness there. That's what that is truly jumps out. I would say that the killing of Caesar is not necessarily the best thing ever, and I would actually say that that's pretty mundane and straight. It's a bunch of senators. I will say that a real queer in history was modeled after it and in turning the killing of Caesar into camp. That is where we got our gas historical moment, and that is John Wilkes booth, killing Lincoln. Okay to add to that I. DO agree with you. I would argue anything premeditated is gay just off top I would I would argue also murder is gay. Just just motor in general is gay, I would argue any assassination as gay to spend that much time consumed with the life and death of another man. Have that look in your eye. It's the same look in your eye icy. When talks about Charlie booth, it's a game. I think that you know, but like transforming the killing of Caesar stealing simple tarantulas shooting Lincoln in a theater after Lincoln himself had been warned not to come to the theater, because his wife was having premonitions much like of the ides of March warned Caesar on that he was going to be murdered. I think that it just took the Caesar murder and. made it. Yeah, there are two things here. That are very I. Just want to reiterate planning. Planning Planning is like. We all. We all have the one who gets the palm springs together. That's what. That person is also in assassin. Is What I'm argument? Well, it's certainly you. I have a feeling somebody who's in the passenger side recommending we listen to like Helen Reddy music while the planner actually runs the show. I'm baby. Lewis has no planner.

But still wanting people to do things for me, his manifest, wanting people to do things for him for the Party bread, explicitly just asking them to do it right, and they have, and they have to figure out themselves. They have to do it I can't. I can't even be aware of the inventory of what's occurring. Yeah, I will say to wrap this up with Julius. Caesar stuff. The gladiators shoe is definitely gay shoe. That's too much string. Why are you wrapping around the legs so much? Gay Rights Yeah Alesi. Shoe explained. Remember when those were coming back. What do you mean? It's always like it's always like Charlie's the run or something just wearing a gladiator. Blake lively, and like a rump pair I'd gladiators you? Just, so fucking dramatic for going to Brunch and it's usually white women in Hollywood. And by the way I want to say I. WanNa shout out the gayness of the show. American gladiators where I'm not super concerned with who the men were on that show, but the women were named things like Ice Gold Diamond Siren. Just they were like superheroes who? Loved Climbing Walls and rolling you over in a giant ball and I think that's like an underrated queer series. Anyway. KILLING CAESAR Kinda, guy sure, but confirmed taking it to the next level and recreating the killing of Caesar, in my pension to kill American president in a theater is. Even Gayer, yeah, ultimate gay ultimate HR recipient. John Wilkes Booth yes. So let's roll the heartache. Hello, this is Eric calling from London England.

"He's an out gauge director who was directing mainstream films at like flatliners Lost Boys Batman, and Robin, Batman forever, and was he out at the time. Yes, just contacts for me, so he goes out of this, so when he put nipples on Batman, he was a gay man. Yes, people in Hollywood knew that he was gay. Wonderful wonderful and. It's just really fun going back and revisiting these movies which were camped over the top. And just realizing how much of that was a gay man pudding? Queer themes into mainstream films. Yeah, intentionally having fun. So much of like the discourse about Batman forever and Batman, and Robin like I just remember I have three straight brothers, I remember them watching or my older brother. Jim Watching the movie at the time and being like. And like but not having enough context to be like or giving me enough context. This is a campy movie really bad to make you fucking laugh a lot. You know you're not a serious movie. I Actually Watch Joel. Schumacher's the client yesterday, which is you gave us Serandon as a hard bitten, former alcoholic lawyer good performance to rewatch. I also watched saying almost fire, which is dreadful. Awful. Awful? demorris! Winning how? Yes I will say the the pure faculty of that movies theme song though. How did how it just at how it just blows up every scene, and who is I've seen that movie like twice, and it really is abysmal. Who is in the scene where they're basically just sitting in a bedroom and wind is blowing through or dramatically, and it looks like it's spurrier. Oh yeah, the. Demi. Moore is definitely sitting shivering during. The movie. But that that movie is signature Brat Pack, and that it gives you childish man who are angry constantly for no reason and women looking offended with tears in their eyes. That's what we got from rat pack. Yeah It definitely is interesting to see the conversation between the Batman Films. You know the way that straight men have really tried to reclaim them with the Chris Nolan films. Chris Nolan meanwhile WHO's trying to kill us all by forcing theaters to reopen, so people will go see tenant. An July. Are. You wants to die for your film. Christopher no yeah. Right. They want to reclaim Batman just because those nineties films are just so much for gays yeah. Like. Batman returns is basically like an an opus of Michelle pfeiffer 's and. There is nothing gayer than. Selina Kyle's transformation in that film, and then you have Joel Schumacher's films. Batman forever with Nicole Kidman in it, Dr, chase, Meridian, and Batman and Robin with everything that Lisa Silver Started Luma Thurman doing this film. Even Mr Freeze is so gay in that film. You like with the blue paint walking around in this firkh coat. Vivica Fox misbehaving. Now, my favorite. Thing in Batman Robin Alesia Silverstone, having to hack into a computer and finding the password to the right of the screen. That's my favorite thing. Yeah! Truly whatever he was able to do to channel a gay man into Houma Thurman in Poison Ivy in Batman and Robin is deserves to be in the film Canon forever. You know a film. It gave us the classic line as I, told lady freeze when I pulled her plug. This is on while. As, he's fighting with Lisa Silverstone. As poison ivy takes a dagger, and looks at her reflection, correct and it like and the opening. which is the Ode to Marlene Dietrich? Another queer icon. There's just so much in Joel. Schumacher's films that you need to analyze is even just down to making vampire sexy in Las Boys, and the sexuality of having been like Kiefer, Sutherland strapped to a table naked in flatliners. Also, also making me sexually attracted demented in masks. Phantom of the opera of it. Which reminds me of course of that story that many driver told where she was talking about an onset story Phantom of the opera, where another actress whom she didn't name I can only assume it's Emmy Rossum. I can't imagine it's Miranda Richardson said. That many many driver was being over the top and Joel Schumacher responded. Oh, honey, nobody ever paid to see under the top. Legend. Legend and I think. We talked about this when Bowen was on, he reportedly said that he is fucked over twenty thousand men in his lifetime. that. Yes, so you know what he said in his. Vulture profile so go and read that profile. r.i.p to legend, that's the level of gain I expect from somebody who casts Drew Barrymore and Debbie. Masar as people named sugar and spice. Yes, so rip to a gay.

"Else. It's the first real honest depiction of what it looks like to be a black woman who's assaulted, and then you get to watch Michaela's character Arabella go between denying it accepting it learning to fight against it, learning to accept it as well, and it's dizzying. It's heroin, but it's hilarious and beautiful and Hbo Max once again that girl that girl and a half I would also say that for people who are worried about it being sort of triggering to watch I think that it's handled. deftly in isn't salacious. to the point of making you just sort of re live this rate in a gross way You don't see it viscerally the way that you would expect it. It wasn't triggering to me. As a person who has been drugged bar before, so I would say that it is a show that you can watch and Michaela call sort of really. Has Her audience in mind when she's watching it obviously not about situation like mine. It's about a black woman. But she has her audience in mind, and you can tell that there's care taken to not just traumatize people with this story and it's it's having an important conversation, but she's also telling a story and being fucking funny, and there's great acting in it, and it says so much about black female friendships and. It's also weirdly a very funny series that is about a writer and her best friend. It's an actor and I think that like setting in London and not in Hollywood. You're able to tell this story in a more interesting universal way. Perfect watch it. Make sure you watch it. It's a good show and Nick it's a good show. Good show and then. You get to. You got to pretend that you have a bunch of black friends in your partying in London too so there's some enjoyment there. Even though they grimy Sochi, speaking of heroin get important. Can we talk about disclosure for a second new netflix documentary about? Trans Representation Hollywood history, and how images of Trans People by the way Ben around, since the beginning of film including D W, Griffith himself getting terrific into the mix. Let me tell you something. He does not handle it well. I've got news free. Really because I thought, he handled black face so well I know. The Master Dwi Griffith yes. This is a documentary. That's a lot like the celluloid closet. If you've ever seen it where they go through all these old images that seem so crazy now so inflammatory and yet. The other thing that's crazy. As as long as there have been trans images, those images have not been for the consumption of trans people. Know Movie Director like whatever the thirties let or the eighties whatever? Put. These images in their films thinking Oh other transpeople will absorb these or even that transpeople even really exist. It's basically A. A real fast one! Oh, one swift study of how condition we were to dehumanize transpeople and the talking heads. are so brilliant constantly like we already know Laverne Cox can pop off with a tedtalk whatever she wants. Everybody in this movie Jen Richards who's a trans actress who like. Richard is he so hopefully does smart. Yes, the way she talks about. I Kate as a series. There's very smart to sidestep dragging Caitlin Jenner. Who is trash on the record? Though the way they sidestep it though. Because They WanNa talk about the importance of how I am Kate. Just allow Trans people to have real conversations on television. Right that they had not gotten to have an any sort of other like reality series so they'll always be grateful to the Kardashians and Caitlin for facilitating this right. And also like Candice Cain. transacts talks about when she was on the show, dirty sexy money and in her. Andro to indicate that she was trans. The show lowered her voice to octaves so that the audience understand it just like simple things like that, then you would never be revisited. Again. are like giving a spotlight here and only first episode. Correct her first line of dialogue they lower her octave, and then they keep her voice same the rest of the episode, and that is something as a fan of that show, never even registered to me, obviously watching this show in like high school, right? And also that show started the unproblematic Baldwin Billy Baldwin ability then go. salacious episodes of Jerry Springer where you know, people basically attack transpeople on television, and it goes through all sorts of versions of representation, and it's just incredible to your parents should watch it. It's it's it's so brilliantly laid out, and people are so smart about their own experience, and how watching silence of the lambs affected them growing up as a trans person. Just watch it. It's great. That's what I would say. It was a documentary that felt infuriating. But also galvanizing as a queer creator to just want to. Learn more about trans. Stories and help transpeople better. Tell their stories you know I. think that we talk about how to be allies and you know while we are off. Three of us also marginalized peoples on trying to make it in Hollywood. and I'll talk about that a bit more later in my keep it It is important to also recognize that We have more privilege in a way than people do. Do you know and the Jerry Springer thing was really interesting to me to just because I have long contended that the daytime talk show era was so important despite how gross and raising exploited if it was just because they talk in the documentary, so many people about seeing those images on TV. The that was the first time they were seeing like Black Trans men you know or trans women sort of owning themselves and. I think it was on traceless set origin Richardson's talking about the fact that these Trans Women of the time were being exploited, but also because of the way that capitalism is set up and Discrimination Trans People. They were also able to collect a check from these talk shows right so like going on a show and being a side show is paying your bills and keeping you head, and keeping you from having to do sex worker anything else dangerous as a trans person when you're on the marginalized sides of society and. I just remember that you know as a gay person. You know like we would see gay people on these talk shows. And it's just weird to go back and see them now and say oh. Yeah, those are crazy, but also they're real people. And that was the first time we would have a site about that, right? What what other opportunity did we have to see? Just gay people living you know we. Everybody was watching the real world at the time. It's like if I'm eleven years old. Maybe I don't even know how to get to MTV. Meanwhile, what's on after? The price is right one of these shows you know millions of people watching these shows. And just speaking about Queer people being out there and representing themselves. Know Louis and I would be remiss to not mention the passing of Joe Schumacher. God come on Monday a fantastic director. I would say who is basically should have his own book. That is an addendum to Susan Sonntags notes on camp our show because. He is a director who we've mentioned before..

"Can I wear hearing an extraordinary allegation from a federal prosecutor who helped convict the president's friend Roger stone that prosecutor plans to tell congressional committee tomorrow that he faced pressure from the highest levels of the justice department to go easy on stone here CBS's Nancy quarters assistant U. S. attorney Aaron Zelinsky says the political influence he experienced in the Roger stone case was deeply unsettling and virtually unprecedented in a detailed thirteen page statement the Lynskey says the team that prosecuted the president's longtime friend was pressured to water down and in some cases outright distorts the events that transpired in his trial in order to secure a lighter sentence what I heard repeatedly he wrote was that Roger stone was being treated differently from any other defendant because of his relationship to the president stone was convicted on seven counts including witness tampering and lying to investigators but when it came time for sentencing the Lansky says higher ups suddenly overrode his team's recommendations in court we were not informed about the content or substance of the proposed filing or even who was writing it that leads a landscape to resign from

"This is kingpins podcast original. I'm Alyssa and I'm kate. Every day in May we're featuring a quote by an iconic crime figure teaching us in their own words what it takes to survive in the underworld. Today's quote is from Meyer Lansky otherwise known as the Mafia's banker and Associated Faint Mobster Lucky. Luciano lansky established a sprawling gambling empire ultimately however his crimes cost him his money and his family. But the one thing lansky resolved never to lose was his integrity in his twilight years. The well read Lansky was known to offer words of wisdom. He adapted from Shakespeare's the merchant of Venice. He said when you lose your money you lose nothing when you lose your health you lose something when you lose your character. You lose everything. Taking advice about character from a man who lived on the wrong side of the law may seem dubious but to the Mafia Maya Lansky had it in spades. The son of Russian Jewish immigrants landscape and his family came to New York in one thousand nine hundred eleven where he cut his teeth as a teenage thug in the city's lower east side and although he was small measuring no more than five foot four what he lacked in height he made up for in pure gumption no matter what. Lansky stood his ground which meant frequent scraps with boys twice size and this was how he met his future partner. Lucky Luciano when Luchino and a gang of teenage Sicilians cornered landscape to extort him for money. He didn't pay up lansky defended himself so fiercely. Luchino called off his dogs impressed by the scrawny kids. Tenacity from that moment tone Lansky and Luciano allies in New York. City's criminal underworld while Lucina was the Braun. The guns violence in Fisticuffs Lansky was the brains. The strategy the WIT Lansky had a talent for numbers and whether it was dice. Cards OR FIGURING. Each man's haircut of job he could make calculations in his head at lightning speed over the years this shape the trajectory of his entire career. As Luciano's right-hand man lansky helped elevate the mob into a business. He applied principles of accounting and economics to Sicilian Mafia traditionalism and eventually he and Luchino helped found a coalition of Jewish Italian criminals across America. That would become known as the National Crime Syndicate but while he racked up his fair share of criminal. Ironically what Lansky was best known for among his colleagues was his honesty starting in the nineteen thirties. He opened a string of gambling. Tents and casinos the stretched for New York to Las Vegas and Lance Key's joints whether legal or not had zero tolerance policy for cheating as the saying goes. You Win some you lose some and Lansky stood by that philosophy. He strived to treat his clientele right in if that meant losing some cash in the process so be it plus if anyone knew the odds it was Lansky and they were always in his favor Lansky. Gambling Empire continued to grow over decades even crossing the Gulf of Mexico. Cuba and his wealth grew with it. According to a profile in the Wall Street Journal at one time his fortune was estimated at three hundred million dollars but the money the glory. All of it didn't last landscapes. Work was tearing his family apart his wife. Anna was plagued with anxiety and after seventeen years of marriage. They divorced even his children were distrustful of their father. Secret business dealings and hot temper. Their relationship with him was a strange one. Nineteen fifty one when the Senate Crime Committee named Lansky on their list of crime leaders. The JIG was finally up the government out for him lansky tried to go straight he pivoted to legitimate business remarried and eventually retired to Florida but he could never escape his past for decades he was tailed by the IRS and the FBI. They tapped his phone calls. Bugged his home scoured his tax returns. He couldn't walk his dog without plainclothes officers following his every step in an unmarked car. The authorities were desperate to find on ski anything that would get him in court and they did but no matter how many charges were brought against him no one succeeded in actually convicting him. This was no doubt due to land skis own diligence. The same tenacity that saved him in a scrap with teenage Luchino. Never left him. Even while in his seventies in a federal courtroom Lansky stood his ground and most likely did a slick job of hiding any trace of what was left of his money whether Lansky buried his own paper trail is debatable but when he died of lung cancer in nineteen eighty three is rumored fortune of three hundred million dollars had seemingly vanished so all intents and purposes. Meyer Lansky died sick and broke but he passed still clutching tight to the scraps of his character..

"Him money president the Lansky and that phone call made sure to tell him I stayed there trump branded hotel because Donald Trump cares who's paying him money so it is an extraordinary thing that people can pay him money and be on the inside and that is really what our government has come to it it's one of the reasons why I mean when I wrote when I propose the title for my book American oligarchs I didn't know what was gonna happen but what I have increasingly seen as this government that is just being pushed towards oligarchy which means extremely wealthy people can manipulate in ways that benefit them and then get the government in motion to do things that will enable them to make money even faster and unfortunately that is the position where we're in right now when have you read a section where you sum that up in a way that is chilling it's on page four hundred and seven also this from the epilogue where I have just finished talking about Han are at and you have to read it to find out why is in the country towards oligarchy requires confusing as trump did in his first formal press conference as president elect company and country making no distinction between the national interest in what he sees as his broader family interest trump's family is necessarily his own family his wife and children and their spouses and their children family also includes those officials and employees from whom he demands obsequious loyalty though unlike his actual family these people can move in and out of favour at trump's swim can you go on to say in that section it ends a government racing towards a world where it's impossible to play by the rules because the rules exist only according to trump swim and thinking about it the coming even if you want to play by the rules not knowing what the rules are right we see that the impeachment trial where there's been you know seven sets of rules shown okay said trump didn't do anything wrong he didn't commit any crimes it was a crime don't pay attention what John Bolton the saying whatever doubles as a false okay if you did what John Bolton says that's not a crime either so this is constant sound of a moving target and you see this in the sort of like huge realistic court cases that I've been following where trump has been suing various people who want documents and things from him and there's a sense that whatever the rule is it doesn't apply to him so I mean I I found myself in a Manhattan court room up with Donald trump's lawyers arguing yes he could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and not be investigated so long as he's a sitting president that is the official position of Donald trump's lawyers in that case is going to the Supreme Court in March even though he has lost it all the lower court levels so it is the case that they are making that the very explicitly that the rules don't apply and I think that he he has managed to live his life that way and I think that we are now at this moment where that is really being tested and the question is assertive if there is no reckoning for Donald Trump how does he interpret how the rules apply to him and how the rules go forward and ask a few questions from the audience now can you tell us about the Kushner family ties to Saudi Arabia so far as I understand the Christian family ties to Saudi Arabia really did originate with that during the campaign and in the presidency I I mean it's I spent a lot of time looking to see if they were financial ties our business ties that predated that and I couldn't find them which doesn't mean they don't exist because it's hard to uncover their business relationships but it does seem something that developed out of Jared Kushner before he had views on most things had a very clear view on Israel and he really aligns himself with the Likud party Bibi Netanyahu Bibi Netanyahu is a family friend he played basketball with Jared and living stand and so that is your Kushner's political view and their relationship with the Saudis really seemed to come from his believing that that relationship could support the state of Israel and we see it today in the peace plan that Jared Kushner release which I haven't studied because I'm talking about the book but this that that is the sense of the Saudis could support him and he forge this relationship with Mohammed bin Salman whose like Jared Kushner sees himself as a disruptor lectured Kushner has a fraught relationship with his own family and was seeking power in Saudi Arabia and they develop this relationship and after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi Jared Kushner was asked how can you support this family and basically what he said is the Middle East as a very tough place and you have to have some allies and I'm taking the Saudis but he continues to break the rules I mean he exchanged whatsapp messages with Mohammed bin Salman even though he was advised against it by his own intelligence agencies and in fact there is evidence that U. S. intelligence agencies not the Saudis were spying on the U. S. using Jared Kushner's vector and and warned him against it so but the relationship continues here's another question that is because I wanna I wanna know about this before trump's inauguration of aka trump met with Al Gore about the climate was there any kind of reporting about this meeting that you know about I'm sure just a little bit I mean I don't think it went anywhere I know more about the other meeting that she had was a still Richards where she proposed that if Planned Parenthood could stop providing abortion services she could call off the Republicans insistence on defunding of Planned Parenthood so that definitely happened during that period I know less about the Al Gore meeting but I don't think it I mean there is you know the US has retreated from the Paris climate accords and the results are how should we think about how is on the trump operates as a as a political operator and as a business person so Ivanka trump is very much like her father and I think if you read the book you understand all of the way she's like her father that her relationship to the truth her view of the correct business practices she's much more polished than her father and I think one of the things about the wedding scene that I talk about is how so Ivanka unlike her husband Jared Kushner her father Donald Trump is actually a child as the Manhattan elite and she was really accepted in the Manhattan cultural elite and gave them a kind of access to that world through her but when it comes to politics she is absolutely one hundred percent loyal to her father now something interesting about Ivanka trump she doesn't participate much in the sort of bullying and criticism that she wants to sort of tell a positive story of the administration so that is what she sees her role with occasionally she steps out of that role but I there were a lot of people in New York who told me that they were friends with the moniker they were friends with shared and they when they went to the White House they were sure that they were going to represent the New York point of view on things and prevent their father or father in law from doing anything too crazy and there's a lot of betrayal in the book that is one of the levels of the trail where a lot of people who thought they were friends with them and thought they were part of the world were shocked when they went to the White House and we're not more forceful advocates of what they viewed as their side you see the New York way of doing things and that is something I thought about a lot reading about Ivana's grandfather and then her father and now where we are in the twenty first century and how did New York way of doing things in the twentieth century was paying off politicians getting the approvals he needed to get how much do you think about where we are now with our the US government the federal government how much of it is a sort of New York style local politics yeah a lot more than it used to be you know one of the things that I also talk about the book is the destruction of campaign finance laws and I went back and I read the citizens United case and everything that Obama said about it which kind of shocked me which was that he was going to allow foreign influence in U. S. elections which he said in his state of the union address in twenty ten which I hadn't really noticed at the time and one of the things that happened as a result of the destruction of the campaign finance system is money can come in to the election system in so many ways that if you are a businessman or woman you are crazy to not give to the system because it's not very much money in terms of your bottom line so two things are happening it has been made much more sense systematically easier for people to contribute to the political system in all kinds of dark money in various ways but also the president has signaled that if you give him I'll give you something and we see in the recent indictment of less partnership on the left harness right and eager Freeman that Rudy Giuliani associates who were working with him in Ukraine they were indicted for funneling Ukrainian money into the U. S. electoral system why because they wanted an energy they won seven energy business and they want to set up marijuana business and they also wanted some stuff to happen in the Ukrainian world so there so there are more old view this sort of is the Ukrainian way of doing things brought right into our governmental system this incredibly transactional nature of things and I did anybody listen to the tape that live partners released of you know trump at this dinner party and they're like he's like yes I'll do this for you yes I'll do that for you I mean he is a transactional politician he said in his inaugural at his acceptance speech at the Republican convention I understand that the system is Rick and I alone can fix it nobody understands the system better than me and I think it's true nobody does understand the system better than me but he hasn't fixed it he has broken it beyond recognition he has made it possible for everybody to behave in the way he did as a businessman in his telegraph that people will be rewarded for behaving in that way I have one last question for you Andrea this is a story about two families the questioners and the trumps it's also a story about American systems and political structures and after you did this reporting how much do you think the trouble we're in is because of one of these families in particular and how much do you see them as participating in systems that are breaking down and will continue to be broken even if they're not on the scene yeah I mean I think bos American democracy is very broken and that created an opening for somebody like Donald Trump to takeover but I also think that Donald Trump has specifically corroded democratic institutions and acted up if you do need to learn all the Garki from the former Soviet Union because he practiced in New York and he understood that he could give money to politicians and get what he wanted and he corroded the system from within and I didn't quite understand that when I started my reporting that that kind of behavior also had been immensely damaging to democracy and then he brought it to the White House so I think the answer is it is both the specific choices of these two families but also the fact that we as a society have failed to defend our democracy against all these assaults now I do really believe in hope and I believe and hope because we can still push back on the assault on truth this book is an attempt to say here's a here's a record that I made records exist truth exists and I'm still doing that so I still have hope thank you in advance.
