Dick Morris Compares Tucker's Fox Exit to Larry King's CNN Departure
"Investments dot com. Welcome to the Eric metaxas show. We'll get you from point a to point B but if you're looking for point C well buddy you're on your own. But if you wait right here in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now here's your Ralph crammed into the airways. Eric my taxes. Folks, welcome to our two. We continue our conversation with dick Morris about breaking into other news. I'm still not going to get over it, dick, as much as I just expected to talk to you about president Trump. But the drama that Fox News has done such something so dramatic, so dramatic. I'm being redundant. But so dramatic, I think most fox watchers will be shocked because it seems that Tucker in particular was the major tentpole in the organization. Remember when Larry King left CNN, it died. I mean, it took a few months for it to die or a year or two. But basically, roger ailes once told me he said, Larry King is the only thing holding CNN up. And if he goes, the whole thing collapses. And then when he did go, it just fell apart. And I don't remember why they fired him or did he just leave? No, I think he just left. But there was no sex scandal, so we probably didn't know it. But I think that the thing that I find fascinating though over the last

Pat Boone Shares a Story About Elvis and Lisa Marie
"I remember, I don't know, it's got to be close to like 15 years ago or something. When Elizabeth Taylor passed away and Dick Cavett, who I'm privileged to call a friend as I call you friend, he was interviewed on, I don't know what it was. I don't think Larry King was on anymore. But it was one of those shows and he was being asked about Liz Taylor and he said, yeah, she's like the last of the redwoods from that Hollywood era. She's the last one. But he said, but, you know, we shouldn't envy these people because he knew the behind the scenes story that addicted to drugs innumerable failed marriages, alcoholism. I mean, a level of misery that is mostly hidden from the public or it's sold in the tabloids as part of their fun, crazy life. But you know these people as people and you realize it sells itself records, it sells movies, but it destroys lives. It's heartbreaking. Yeah, when Lisa Marie. Died recently and her own son had died of a drug overdose. And I'd been with her just a month before with Priscilla. It was at the 45th anniversary of Elvis's death. And of course, there were still people coming from around the world as they do every year in August. And there's a shrine that was on Elvis at his at his home site. And it's almost like they're coming to commemorate saint Elvis. Because for sure. And he was gone and so they just can't let him go. Well, then in the shadow of all of that, talk about the valley of the shadow of death. Lisa Marie's son died, and then of drugs, and then she died of a heart attack. And I made the statement because I loved them all. I had just been with them. Celebrating, you know, Elvis life. And to some extent, his death, and I made the statement that supreme fantastic success can often be more dangerous, the sudden success than long lives in poverty.

Biden Sexual Assault Accuser Tara Reade Describes Her Experience
"Tara, please first just refresh our audience, what did Joe Biden do to you? Well, and I worked for him in 1982 to 1993 before that I had been an interim for Leon Panetta and then worked on a congressional race. I had worked for all Democrats, worked on a judge's race, and then I applied for the U.S. Senate where Joe Biden was senator. He was chairman of the judiciary at the time and foreign relations. And I was hired at the interview by Joe Biden, as a matter of fact, I was interviewing with the scheduler, and he walked by and had a few words with me and hired told her to hire me. So I started working for him in 1992 through 1993. And in 1993, I experienced sexual harassment and went through protocol. I did not go public. I went through protocol through the Senate procedure. They didn't have one really at the time. It was very clear. But I did file a report after I was sexually assaulted. I had not reported the sexual assault I reported the sexual harassment. I was waiting to talk to someone in person to talk about the assault. Now, when I was assaulted by Joe Biden in 1993, after that, my duties were cut in my office, I was told I wasn't a good fit, and I was forced to resign. I stayed quiet, publicly, except to a few close friends and family who knew at the time. My mother, in 1993, made a call to the Larry King show. She was so upset. She had wanted me initially to go to the police. There is now a police report, but at the time I was too frightened. And at the time, one of the Senate aides for Joe Biden when he found out I had filed the sexual harassment, told me that if I were to pursue this, they would destroy me.

Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central, on Firearm Suppressors
"But let's start off with the nuts and bolts of the suppressor formal commonly known silencers. We get this. And I was talking with Larry King with a national sports shooting foundation the other few weeks on the podcast. And we got into this real discussion. First off, why are suppressors treated so differently in the U.S.? And let's talk about what a suppressor is. Yeah, good question. So you know, I've read a lot of legislative history on it to try to get a better understanding of why the suppressors are regulated, really the same way that a machine gun is. So the process that was made regulate machine guns, silencers were thrown into that same process. You know, the more I look at it, it's hard to find any true documentation for notes that were taken or any background. So everything that people perceive as somewhat guessed or assumed, but one theory was that Congress was looking at putting handguns into the national firearms act process, which is the way you buy a machine gun and a suppressor now, and that it was sort of a trade out. Hey, let's put silencers instead of hand guns. That's been one theory. I've heard hypothesized. The other theory is the laws were created a 30s, so there was this concern that maybe people would poach neighbors cattle if they had access to silencers. So let's potentially make them harder to get. You know, in my mind, the thought is probably that there was really no advocate for it. I mean, you obviously know better and I do about legislative issues, but if there's no advocate there to say, hey, why are we doing this or question verbiage or question? The intent of what the goal is, sometimes things just slide through because there was no advocate there saying, hey, why are we doing

Protecting and Celebrating Our 2nd Amendment Rights
"One of the most amazing things over the last little bit has been the rise in folks who are pursing firearms, not only for hunting, sports, but personal protection. You know, and it's really grown over the last special last number ten to 15 years. I think a lot of my Friends are into the gun dealing business, especially have been very thankful for folks like Morocco Obama and Joe Biden and others for increasing sales. But here on the podcast, you know that I'm an avid hunter, someone who loves to hunt to not only fish, but also shoot, I've been shooting since I was a kid. And today is great Larry King from national shooting sports foundations here. We'll have a great conversation. Let's just jump right into this. I mean, shot show is two weeks away. A great show. But we got a lot of other things going on. What's top of the list right now for y'all's organization? Well, right now, the top of the list is the chachi because it's such an important event for us. So we're really focused on making sure that show goes off without a hitch and you know we aren't able to have a show last year unfortunately because of COVID. So we are having the show this year. It's present some challenges as everything in life now is challenged by COVID, but it is going to go forward. We expect to have a very good crowd. We know that our attendees are really excited about having the opportunity to get back and be in person again. So we're really looking forward to it. I think the numbers I saw earlier today suggested we could have as many as 45,000 people the chat show in a normal year would be 55 to 60, something like that. So it's going to be a very healthy crowd. There are going to be a couple of companies that aren't able to make it. Because of decisions they made about how they want to address COVID and we understand that, but they're committed to returning to the show in 23, and we're really, you know, so we're really

Introducing Ronald Young Jr., Solvables Newest Host [TEST]
"Listeners. I want to introduce you to ronald young junior. You might be familiar with his name from other work. In podcasting leading shows like time well spent and leaving the theater. He's sometime guess contributed around. Npr's pop culture happy hour. We are really excited to make it. Official that ronald is going to be the newest host of solvable. Thank you thank you for having me. I'm so so excited to be here so publicly on the team. Believe it or not hosting solvable is not my main job. My main job is being. Ceo pushing in and pushkin over the last year in lockdown has like doubled in size. We have almost fifty people now. And it's exciting. There's a lot going on But it's sort of crowded out the time that i like to spend preparing and figuring out gas that also i'm not really a host. I don't know if you noticed that. I think i am trade. I'm an Host i have certain hosts qualities that i'm really interested in talking to the guests on the show And i have a lot of drive to learn. But i don't have that quality of hosting which i hear your voice and i really wanna know how that is done. Well first of all. I don't know if that's that's the message like we got hosted coaster said coming on all star show. I've always found it easy to talk to people. I've always founded easy to connect with folks and ask questions. And i'm curious about and mostly because as a child i was always encouraged to ask whether it was two friends. The families the teachers. And i think that's what helps with being a good host and with conducting good interviews. Which you do a great job of thank you ronald but yeah no. I think that just that basic quality of curiosity. If if you don't wanna know you can't read someone else's questions the producers on the show do suggest a lot great questions for us but ultimately you ask the ones that are your questions that have been you want. no yes. It's funny because like you know working with the solvable team. It's certainly is a team effort. But i think what makes a good host that what makes a good interviewer is the ability to read the conversation and to know when it when it needs to take a turn when it's about the pivot or when you're curiosity might push the interviewee a little deeper into the subject matter and even more comfortable and ready to answer more questions as they go so and i really enjoy doing that so this is a very exciting role for me. You do something i mean. Since were on this this topic. I do think being a really good host goes beyond just the flow of the conversation. Asking the right questions that something about creating this this environment this kind of comfort even this sense of place. And here's what. I don't feel that. I really know how to do but i hear in your voice you know in a lot of the people who are just really good shows terry gross. You know you just feel like you're at her place like you're in her world and you know in the guest is coming into her world and you feel as a listener. You're made to feel welcome and comfortable. How do you do that route. You know wish. I could say there was a trick. I wish i could tell you. Hey do this thing. And this'll this'll work but for me. It's just it's hospitality. It's really being genuinely interested in what they have to say. It's paying attention to them. Not necessarily thinking so far ahead that you can't be president in the conversation creating that warm sensitive environment it really comes from like a genuine place inside people and i think most people talk to you. We'll tell you that this is who. I am all the time. So it makes it easier for me to just bring this be to a hosting role Whereas some people. I think are very good at being a host and then you know in the rest of their lives are not nearly as hospitable or friendly and i can't say anything about ten gross but i i know that good host is being able to create that sense of hospitality in the conversation that they're having that moment. Yeah i think of the great host of my childhood dick caveat who was on. Tv obviously long before your time but back in the days before cable there only a few channels every night cabinet was having these interesting people on his show and he's charming. He's charmed by the gas and a lot of what he's trying to do. Is of course just inject wisecracks. I've got clip here. That's a good example of that it's cabot talking to the comedian don rickles. It's hard for you to be serious but it is. I think people don't admit that deep down inside. If i may be serious for a moment that you do something on stage that all of us would like to do if we had no class the other host i think about all the time as i grew up listening on the radio growing up in chicago. Two studs terkel here just as one example is studs terkel interviewing muhammad ali at one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Why do you think it is always in this particular theater. So many different people are. Why would they rooting for you. The outsider we'll i think the masses root for me because this scuffling they've been persecuted they figure by the tat taxes and whatever they've underdogs people are basically the underdogs hole and the things that i say from my people in the free involve people and the way i speak out in the title of the have and the and now let this. Stop me from recognizing every day man that thing. This is what they whether it'd be black or white. The massive people hardworking people the amazing thing about studs terkel circle. He was so good at talking to anybody today. He would have like a janitor and then he would. Have you know an opera singer. And then he would. Have you know a former vice president or politician and he just part of what was great about him with. He would talk to everybody the same way. Yeah i mean there's a sense of empathy that comes with no matter. Who's in the room. It should be able to be extended to anyone who's sitting opposite from you whether they'd be the janitor or the president of the united states. The other thing is not being afraid to ask even a question that may not sound as smart as you think it does. I think larry king wants said He was he was on. He was talking to jesse thorn. My friend hobie. Khan who wrote you negotiate anything. We grew up together. He says to me larry. The secret of your success is your dumb dumb. Is the great road to success. Because you not afraid to. I don't know tell me help me. That's a lot of interviews help. help me that. You're you're a brain search. You got brain surgery tomorrow morning. Think about it tonight when you go in the check your hands. If they're steady. And then all of a sudden you have this. Very poignant moment because larry king asked a question that is wow. I would have even sit there. I was like ronald do you. Do i do that. Also i wanna make sure that. I i do that but having that empathy allows you to be embassy to cross from you like i said whether it's the janitor or the president of the united states. Yeah so for this show. We do interviews with a particular kind of focused. How is problem solving. And how are people who have ideas about solving problems. Making the world veteran capable of making the world better. And that's the thing that can be big range of stuff. Yeah if you look out there let's say your your houses near the water and you look out there and you're just like the water seems to be creeping closer and closer. You're only thinking about what's going to happen when the water reaches your house and all the horrible things that can happen as the water continues to rise and the flooding when you when you start to think about all that it kind of changes your posture versus if you think how do we stop the water. How do we get the people out. How do we keep my house. Dry and think in terms of This podcast i'd like that it's pivoting from us talking so much about what the issue is because in most cases we know what the issue is what we really need to know is. What's the best way forward. How can we like either neutralize whatever. This problem is or at least adjust our lives so that the problem isn't what it is. Do we need to build a bridge. Maybe we need to build our houses higher whatever that means in order to To get out of the water. I think it gives a bit of optimism to the world
"larry king" Discussed on Dead Celebrity
"Think we're going to die and so in every way in every state plant there's blind spots and there's holes because you're trying to create a document that says airtight as you can while also projecting into an unknown future. You know so except in the rare case of someone who maudlin commit suicide right after writing their estate plan. You can't really you. Don't have that control over when you go. No one's really no writing their staple in anticipation of immediate. A argue with you. On that. I will tell you when you watch human nature rights. I have found over the course of my career. There have been moments where we might have had the state plant down but it was sale or it needs to be updated. I have found someone being put in the hospital I have found over the course of my career. I've had a number of Deathbed signings where someone's been with a terminal disease they keep putting it off doing the estate plan or signing the estate plan and we get it done right before they pass And you know it. I think it has to do with the psychology of an estate plan. Right people don't some people do not want to sign it because they feel that's like signing their death warrants in a way you're absolutely right. I misspoke their deathbed. So something's real thing. Although ironically also the sort of thing that a court will will challenge immediately raise their eyebrows at just because would think again that they're crystal clear in their intent that like. Oh well. I'm an immediate anticipation of my death. I know what i'm doing but in the same day now this opens up these more questions of. Oh well who was influencing that would who was there and these sorts of things so there's always going to be blind spots in these things and and holographic wills they sit at an interesting point in sort of adjusting blinds. Has i think very adroitly pointed out. This idea of you know the convenience and the very personal nature of estate plans which is silly to think about charm and personality in legal document. But that's not something that should be discounted. It should be in the estate planning context. Because when you're trying to guess in to when you're trying to guess what the person may have wanted in disturb these things than charm and personality important in having it in the can help in a much as it hurts having documentary sort of less legally strict exactly exactly so you know i still would encourage everybody to get a proper state plan done by an attorney because the nuances importance but again you know if if this is the only way to get you get and test testamentary intent down on paper. It makes sense. In the case. Larry king poor choices. Poor planning in my in my point of view. That's about all the time we have for today. Folks thank once again begging for being a fantastic best. Thanks for having me. And i look forward to seeing how this case plays out. I don't think this is done yet. Not by a long shot. I think you're absolutely right.

He had Used to have, I think was in the late seventies, early eighties. He had this syndicated radio show that was broadcast all over the place. I think it started in, like, eight o'clock at night, but they gave him as much time as he needed to explore whatever subject he was exploring it Sometimes that's no. Sometimes that shall lease the Cleveland. Um, uh, affiliate carried it. Sometimes that show would go on to like one and two and three in the morning, and I remember I remember listening to what it was. There was nobody better than Larry King. I think later on on his TV stuff, he got a little you know, Pushy, You know, it was really good about him his broadcast.

When i'm telling my story in a book documentary and that part of my life comes up. I may tell that story but the tweet it right. After a person dies it is extremely tone-deaf like read the room peers. Okay folks are mourning grieving. Think about the family friends and folks who loved larry.

And there was several seconds of silence and you saying that's a very good question, And I'm not quite sure what I What have you done? And I think he volunteered that he commuted. Uh, Patty Hearst. Uh, sentence. So, uh, you know, sometimes I call up and ask his guess. You know, That was a terrific question for you to ask Jimmy Carter. That was that was great. And I think it probably would not be very easy to get past screeners and to get on his program the congratulations to you for doing that. And did you do that? More than once? That was the interesting thing. He he never screened his calls, which I know, you know, let you let the connection ring and the producer would pick up the phone and say, Uh uh, What city are you calling from, please? And then they just put your Right on. It was Larry King's philosophy. You know, we thought, um, I believe that if you get in, you should get on how long you stay on is, But that is fantastic. Oh, mad. I'm so glad you called. I love that story. That is absolutely fantastic. So he would just call it. It's a which question for the former president. And then you needed to be good. And if you were good by your question, I guess would be answered. We're gonna take a little break. Care. We'll get some more of your phone calls when we come back. Larry King is what we're talking about. In the first part of the program here, 80 88 10 is our telephone number 4158080810.

"We've been Spending the day listening to some of his old interviews he was known for not spending time preparing for interviews. And there's a bed our dear Larry King, known for not spending time preparing. In fact, he barely showed up. Don't for phoning it in for 20 years here, Larry King will miss him. That was a style that made him so well known was because he had a natural curiosity, and that really would guide the conversations and so s so that's what the show Larry King live. Really? Woz was him just having these conversations and learning about some of these guests as they as they are on the air with no preparation. Um, he was known for asking some softball questions as well. But his show was so popular and made King, one of the faces of CNN and one of the most famous television journalists. In the country you to call people came to that show for just the reasons that bread is saying which are socially with the fact that they knew they weren't gonna be grilled as a result that gives you great access. What it doesn't give you is, you know of a an interview that really holds the interviewees feet to the fire, but King in his very approachable way, and his very as as Brett says, sort of unassuming way that he asked a question and there's nothing prosecutorial or or, you know, particularly pointed about his questioning. He was able to get some really great conversation going and some, and he was able to get some light into a lot of issues, too. I thought, Yeah, absolutely. He got to start in radio. He was actually He was actually asked to fill in for somebody who last minute called in sick or something. And and so he started on the radio and filled in, I believe was like nine to noon shift in Florida. On his first guest was Bobby Darin, the singer. And so that's why, Yeah, one of the things I liked about Larry King. It was his origin story. I was mentioned this at the beginning of the show, and that he started with so little Here's a little of Larry King and his life as a kid. Growing up and his move into radio. I was enamored with the sound of radio. When I was a teenager in Brooklyn, I would come into Manhattan. By the way, the clipping, you hear, they're like there's a little clipping and the audio that's not from us. That's from the interview itself. They had some audio problems, so please bear with us on there, and I go around two radio shows that had studio audiences. And I'd watch them read and talk into microphones. And I was I loved the whole kind of love fame or anything. I just wanted. Being the radio. My father died. Sadly when I was nine. My brother was six. Way went on relief. Now they call it welfare. We went on. We were all relate for 23 years. New York City bought my first pair of glasses. I never forgot that and My mother couldn't go to work. So we were home and New York City paid my rent and they paid. They gave us a stipend. Live on. We moved to Bensonhurst Little Attic apartment. I visited it yesterday. They're doing a special for my 60th following me around, eh? So he was a I just think those air such humble beginnings and worthy of recognition as you look back at that life because from that, he, as Brett says, then went on to radio and had this opportunity presented to him and he don't you froze on the air. The first time you went on the open the mike and it was like eyes. That is not right. But I didn't read that. Wow, that was on the radio programming on the television program. No, no. On the on the radio program, and the general manager of the station came in. He kicked the door open. He said. Hey, this is a communication business communicate. And so now, king feeling tremendous pressure. Goes on again and he literally said. Um my name is Larry King. I've just changed it from Larry. Was it Zeiger? Yeah. And he said that Because my name my name's Iger was too Ethnic and the general manager just kicked the door head and told me to communicate. So I want you to know that I'm gonna be here reading the news, and it was like a Have confession and half introduction, you know, and it worked. And he said From that moment on, he was never nervous again because his advice to everyone is to just be yourself When the mike opens. Oh, in the TV camera goes on. Just be yourself, you know, and King came from as they were debating. You know what name to use. The General Aniceto look down at that. The ad in the paper and it was an ad for King's liquor. So that's how he got his in the last name. Larry King. Yeah, he said. I'm glad I wasn't active, acute called Larry Liquor like that didn't happen. Yeah, it's a major loss. I mean, it's a significant loss for the media world, but also for pop culture. Because he wasn't just host on CNN. I he was ubiquitous and you popped up on that TV shows movie cameos throughout his long career. Especially since he had this signature suspenders and the oversized glasses. So he became such a character in some of those appearances, for instance, on the Simpsons or remember his. His first notable appearance was in Ghostbusters. They included a montage with King of the Ghost busters taking down ghouls throughout New York City. I don't even remember that I don't either so s Oh, God, I, um Just I know that he did one. Apparently, Here's what When Then we'll move on ahead. To be sure, But one of things about Larry King is he lived large and he lived like a king. You know, when he moved to Florida, he spent money like it was, you know, going out of style. He was on the radio, and he had a profile locally and apparently, you know, put himself into major debt had bankruptcies. He was in debt to guys who you don't want to be in debt to and his reputation was really ruined that way. But in that Service of Living large. He married like you know, most people just date he married eight times to seven different women. Hey, did the double back on one of the wives, which I think is I've got great respect for that. You know, when you go, I shouldn't have divorced her. I'm going to double back and marry her again. He did that. So, uh, yeah, he lived, you know, larger than life kind of world I think on and he was able to rehabilitate his reputation going to CNN is, Brett says, you know, it was the most popular show on CNN. So Larry King How old was he? He was 87 years old. He was diagnosed as having covert 19. And it sounds like it may have been complications, but he died into the seat Cedar Sinai in Los Angeles, 87. Hank Aaron also passed away. He is a remarkable story. He really is. He rose up from the depths of the south and southern poverty to become one of the towering figures in baseball history, as well as a bittersweet symbol of both American racial intolerance. And triumph. Um, when he retired in 1976, Can you believe he played till 1976 100 blazing trails? He had a 23 year Major league career in the National League BRAVES Milwaukee Atlanta before playing his two final season with the American League, Milwaukee Brewers And I e. Don't know which stands to really highlight here because he just had all these career records from most home runs are B. I's total bases, games played. He's still the career leader and total bases and RB eyes and his third and hits behind Pete Rose and Cobb. But he it was humble beginnings. I mean, is just for years, Aaron received thousands of letters, many of them racist. Many of them contained death threats against his family. Well, this is this is the thing I was mentioning before that, you know, he did come up from the deeply racist south..

He was the nationally famous world's most famous radio announcer in the world is Larry King. He was it A kid from Puri, a in his early twenties called him up and said, Hey, would you would you come on my show? King said Yes, and gave me a great interview. Good question, John.

Pete Zimmerman produces that producer Olof reached out to Philip. Today, though he's the president of Seyfarth at work. I'll give you that website in just a second, but he's an expert on what the work space what your work, environment and world are like. Hi, fellas. Welcome back to WGN. How are you? Great. Thanks for having me, John. Just for the listeners who maybe don't hear you on the business lunch so often. What is your business? Do Phillip? We do a lot of training and consulting in terms of all aspect of the workplace, how to be a more successful employee how to be a better manager and how to succeed overall. I was looking at pictures of President Biden behind the Resolute desk, and the story was that I guess I don't know if this is true or not, I don't care. But the President Trump had a button. He would push him when he pushed the button. They would bring in a diet Coke and he guess that was his beverage. He's the president of states. He is the button Dicho show up, he consumed Many Cokes a day. Biden comes in and the button is gone. Now he doesn't want Diet Cokes brought in fair enough. So in either case, though, and this is true for any picture you've ever seen to the president. The resolute desk. Is this enormous, beautiful piece of wood work, and it's always gleaming, spotless clean. There's always a phone. There may be a couple of pens, but not a lot of work seems to be on it. And whenever you see a picture of the Oval Office It's always spotless and clean, where the books and stacks of Manila folders and files I know that he's got people to do it, but so, too do university professors and governors and mayors and when you go into their offices A lot of times they look like Busywork places where somebody's put that on the underground or on the desk and said, I'm going to get back to that. Think of the different personalities of all of the president's The Resolute desk and oval officer. Always spotless and it got me. Do you agree with my observation? First of all, Philip Yeah, I do. Uh, In fact, there's sort of this national case of what we might call Communist envy on the part of key managers and executives will have really see The resolute desk with nothing on it. What? What's really the the arm spoken piece of this? The hidden reality is that many presidents do most of their Breaking more work with the papers, the stacks the file, so to speak in a study that's across the hall from the Oval Office, and then they move over to the Oval Office. For the photo op for the signing of the executive order and for the meeting every so one off a John, You see a president who actually was doing work at the Resolute desk. But it has really it really brings to the fore this question off. How clean should the working desk really be? Because there are people out there in the work world whose desk are in fact, immaculate and others. Who are basically piled under heaps of papers. What do you say about those two groups? What do we know? Yeah, It's really an interesting area. It's It's been studied because the questions that you've raised and there's benefits and there's ah realities associating with both a very clean desk. Very messy work space. And first, although there submits one myth when you interview people who walk into someone else's office is if there's reams of papers strewn about The perception is that the occupant is potentially lazy, potentially not that concerned about hygiene and in a minimum, highly highly forgetful in this organized as if they're not going to follow up on what they say, Uh, on the other side, John There's a perception when it comes to what people view is a neat freak that that person might be way too rigid, Unwilling to listen. Far too prone to follow rules, even the rules that aren't good for the organization. So that's the myth. The reality. John is somewhere in between. That is to say people with messy desks. May not be in many cases as organized. They may not be as quick to find a specific file, but Army other side of things they often end up being more imaginative. More creative and more open minded. So you get pluses and minuses on both sides of the board. I see the resolute desk. I think Being president must not be very hard if I walk into an office and it's immaculate and organized and I don't see a lot on the desk. I I know I'm drawing conclusions about that person and not that their job isn't hard, but it strikes me as being a little tight. Maybe this person's wound up a little too tight. Maybe maybe they're not going to like me or my work space because my work space is not like and I am forever endeavoring to clean up my space and And stack things neatly. But after a while, I've got lots and lots of stacks. It's not a neat workplace, you know? Yeah, and there's without making 100% of a conclusion about an individual which is never a great idea. There's some truth to that perception, as well as the perceptions about people who are viewed by others as perhaps somewhat or overly messy people who have immaculate clean. Entirely sterile workspaces. They're very in many cases, they're much more prone to follow corporate tradition. They're much less willing, in some cases to entertain ideas that seem outside of the norm of what's happened before and so. So there's some truth to that way. Did our own experiment with our training groups where we had Two groups fill a box. Wait, Hold on. I want to hear this story in a minute. And I also want you to answer this question. If the o knowing, say I was about to interview a candidate, and I knew that they were a messy person or a neat person. Shouldn't I find a job that best matches that I know everybody's a little in the middle, but you've just talked about the traits the tendencies, So maybe you should find something that's more organizational for this person and more creative for that person. And can you change a person by getting them to clean up their work space? Philip Weiss is on the phone line. 31298172 hundred's the phone number your questions or observations. I'd love to hear them.

Larry David Larry King Don't kill Larry David passed away as a legend at the age of 87 over the weekend. His ability. He brought information on entertainment to people in times of stress. He helped them overcome it times enjoy helped him enjoy it. I loved every minute of it. Was that Larry King? Yeah. Who is he talking about himself? Oh, I think that was like if I had to reflect on myself. This is what I would say about myself. I don't know. I just take the best part of the interview that made me cry. Perfect Larry King right there, because I mean, you know, you don't want to beat up anyone who's dead, but I know some people who had worked around Biggest jerk in the world. Not surprised. Not surprised at all. Talented, generous surprise very much. No, like he would If you're celebrities, fine, everything but totally would like, just beat the hell out. Everybody around. I hate guys like that. Really? And then the other thing to alert kings. I was proud of, you know, I don't really research my guest before And because I want to be curious about and let me tell you something. Even when his young heard that the biggest crock is, you know, it's like you wanna fuck you. What do you want to phone it in is what you want to go and like, sometimes you get busted like this is like you just can't show. Lot that pisses me off. Larry. You just You just show up and things just that good down. No, he's not. And if you watch it, you get in that context. You don't know It's like the Seinfeld interview, which is hilarious, like He actually threw a question out there about you know, Well, so, your beer ships and declines like we have 75 million people watched the last episode of Seinfeld. I left because I was on top. I want to do other things. What do you talking about? See, I was I've never really watched to Larry King. I pick up on some of the interviews. You know, the famous one with O. J. Simpson And you know the jury, older guy who isn't the right place at the right time. That's all this is You know, And then he'd lob softballs because he wasn't prepared, And that's why they're going to show. I mean, it was just before, like TMZ and stuff, right, so that you gonna show because it's like, Well, I know he's not gonna ask anything tough. So Larry King is not that type of person that you looked up to as an interviewer and as a host, so if you hang out around long enough, you're gonna be revered. Is this like living legend kind of guy and many, many of them are, But I'm saying Larry King never was it for me. I don't want to crap on the guy because he's dead, all right, But I'm just saying it. I've heard enough about him and threw people It's like Yeah, no good. One of those guys anyway, so well, I'm working. This is an easy job. It doesn't have to be. You just walk in the door at whatever time it is into your show. However, I will say there are some talents in the world that are just good enough to do that. I don't know much about Larry so I can't speak to his show in his time. Who could just walk in off the street and start interviewing like, okay, you want to get in depth, and to me, I feel like it's Ryan Seacrest. The guys involved everywhere. Unless he's got someone in his ear, a lot of people, then he must have a full team, and that's what Larry must have had a full team to fill him in. When you make that much money. Yes. What, right. You know what, everyone right again? It's timing is everything they say right? Timing is everything so, Yeah, Larry came rest in peace. That's cool. Well, that was over the weekend. It is a reason why let me just put this out as I tweeted out this weekend before I got my Larry King soapbox. Dave Filoni is that you know your first couple of wives. Maybe it's them by the time you get to number eight. It's definitely you just let you know. It's not you, It's them. That funeral procession is going toe. It's not you is gonna have more estrogen in it. It's like literally. The line is from here to Topeka to see Larry King is like all the justice to the ex wife. Well, Although we are joking about the death of Larry King, I am thinking of his family and his Children. I believe he left behind three. Kids. Sure think of them. That's it. A wife. Three kids listen very good. Rest in peace. Can we move on now? One of us know. Okay, Let's move on now to the Super Bowl is set and I know that last night must have been tough for you, so I really don't want to dwell on the games. I myself am sitting here on the other side is somebody that you know, feels like they have been stripped of their Super Bowl chances because Tom Brady has won several in New England for us, and I'm telling you, it's kind of weird to watch him with the Bucks Jersey go to the Super Bowl. It really, really is and hosting it. Home first home, So that's the first time that's ever happened and just quickly there are gonna be 15,000 fans in the stadium and 7500 of them are going to be vaccinated health care workers and they will be there for free. The last time that they played regular season the Chiefs won against the bucks in Tampa 27 2 24, so it was tight. And the light that the both times that they played each other.

"Larry King because we heard he Had Colbert. He was in the hospital. I thought they released him from intensive care. And then we heard that he passed away. Do we know anything more? No. They have not released an official cause of death. He was in The hospital for three weeks pretty long time being treated for covert 19 and really, that's all that we know. We don't know if there were some complications or something else took place. I imagine that will be releasing that in a day or so. But even that 87 years old, you know, which is a nice age. It's still very sad and everybody's got, you know, great memories of amazing interviews that Larry King King conducted over the years. Whether it was that crazy interview that he did with Marlon Brando and Marlon Brando is never doing interviews that included Ah, full lip on lip Kiss with Larry King. In Marlon Brando or, you Know named the celebrity named the Sports figure named the president named the political figure. You know this? This was back in the day when there was breaking news. The first thing that you did in the evening was watch Larry King that he most certainly would have a news maker on or somebody involved in whatever the story was. Torto, you know to flush it out. Hey, really, In many ways put CNN on the map. He was hired as you know, to do. Ah Primetime evening interview show. And, you know, became its most popular figure on the network. Yeah, his appointment viewing. You want to see who his guest would be? I have to say I'm a little ticked off. You know, CNN did all of their tributes all weekend. And Why did they cut him? I mean, really, he didn't want to go, did he? No, he did not. He'd, you know, be grudgingly, you know, he said in interviews afterwards that he retired, but he really didn't retire. The told him, you know they wanted to move in a different direction. I guess it was because the 24 hour news channels were becoming No more left or right and more polarizing. They were becoming more confrontational. And that wasn't Larry. Larry. Larry, you know, that's one of the things that I admired most about him as an interviewer. On day, I'll bet you and a lot of other people also respected this that he got right to the point of information and asked the questions that you were thinking and wondering, and I don't think I ever thought about what's Larry is political affiliation. Never even occurred to me. Unlike you know the way that you do Think now, about almost every talk show host that's out there right now. He was right down the middle. And maybe that was maybe that played into His early release. You know, from CNN that he wasn't controversial enough. You know, maybe they felt like they needed younger people, more pretty people. You know the way the way you know television was well, I've been on the receiving end of some of those were going in a different direction. Speeches. It happens and I think with Larry's enthusiasm and energy and You knew how much he loved what he was doing, and he even said he looked forward to getting up every day. That's why even though he was how old was 87, 87 87. That's why even at that age, it's it. Really. It really makes you sad. I know you had Couple of chances to hang out with him. What are we gonna here? Last time He was here in Chicago was in 2014 years. He did one of these special nights at the Museum of Broadcast Communication. Where you know you just talked about this life and his love for the Dodgers. Mostly it was his love for the Dodgers. That night. But he came on the TV morning news that day, and we talked about his career and his interviews and, you know lots of things like that. But one of the funny stories that he told was Once when he was being interviewed, Hey was you know, touring the country and going into different cities and being interviewed by you know the dopey morning shows, And this is what happened once when he was in Texas Ramana tour. And I'm on a show called Good Morning, Dallas Right now. I don't have to tell you what the host and hostess looked like. You don't need anything that good morning, Dallas, Dice all the blond head. The blond head woman is gonna interview me and she's got questions are all prepared, not listen to the answers, and I noticed that while she is asking questions If the camera's on me she's touching up. So the third question is what makes a good talk show host and I could tell she's not listening. So I said, Well, I don't know about others, but the key for me. Is being in the CIA. She.

"Oh, wow. And then, of course, he said, Wait to CNN and really gave their night times credibility. What was it must watch. Yeah, he had to be there. And admittedly, Larry King would not read the books of the authors you would have on He was proud of their fair because he said, it made him ask the questions that the folks at home would be asking because they haven't read the book it either. I don't know about that, but worked for him When my son and I wrote West doing our baseball triple he was in high school system to be about 10 12. Years ago, we were in l. A. We stayed in Beverly Hills of West Hollywood, actually, and we would go up to Beverly Hills every morning. Go to Nate Nails. The delicatessen where I knew Larry King with that broad is really we never passed to them. My son did get a picture from afar as as Larry King. His buddies were leaving the deli, but we'd go there every morning at breakfast and on their answers. Larry King should die so you could get a picture of him. But Larry King was indeed a broadcast legend, and he is gone now. Also Speaking of Legends Gun Hank Aaron, the Forever home run King of Major League Baseball, Justin, Amazing individual who I have the honor to meet not to sit here and name drop, But in the course of doing business back in the KT ideas, he came to radio city and he had a book out. I Had a hammer, and it was his autobiography. And it goes into great detail in that book about the good and the bad of his career what he had to put up with being an African American that was breaking the home run record held by Babe Ruth for so long. And just the quiet dignity that he carried. It just makes you realize how fortunate we were that the right people are in the right situations to handle those tough kind of conditions. You think of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier. Hank Aaron, then you know, decades later, breaking the home run record with quiet dignity, self confidence ability.

Nice kitchen clapboard house. Got a nice little porch in the back comes with a standalone garage. Ah, lot of room up in the attic of very well kept up an old house, but it's on a beautiful new England tree lined street. Doesn't have any lower for you whatsoever. Just say, you know, I feel this is a loaded question. Um, uh, because we know Redl. Yeah, I'm just describing. I'm describing the house. Yes, it sounds very nice. Right. How about if I told you the house was associated with this nursery rhyme? Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother 40 wacks when she saw what she had done. She gave her father 41. You could own the Lizzie Borden murder house. Does that change? How much perspective two million bucks? Two million. Yeah, Now he doesn't want it. He doesn't care that the murders happened there. But that's two million. He's not gonna take Wow. That's a lot of money for a little tiny house. It's true, but it's you know, it's his history. Just want to say because, well, hold on one second. Just want to say you know the 40 wax and then the 41. In fact, evidence showed that Lizzie Borden's mother was struck only 19 times with the hatchet and her father only 10 times.

And so I had a very poor opinion of him. I thought he was a swindler. And then I came out here to California. And I was I like to hear him interview people, but I still had a bad opinion of him. But then I read a book, he wrote, And he said that he grew up very poor in Brooklyn, and he said that Hey, was a Democrat, and he said that when he was leaving Miami, he said he had no money and he went to the airport. He said he would like to read a newspaper. But he didn't have money even to buy the newspaper, you know, And so he has somebody if they could have their newspaper, and they let him have it. And then I felt so sorry for him, you know? And I understood why he didn't pay when he left because he really didn't have any money. No money, and I listened to him tonight. Talk about that.

"The news of the passing of Larry King today. I didn't necessarily expect it, but I kind of Expected, if you know what I mean. You know, I didn't know it was going to be now, but I knew he had been in declining health and knew he was dealing with covert complications. I knew he had all sorts of heart problems. I didn't know was going to be today, but still it hit me in a certain kind of way. And I think about the one and only time in which I've met him actually had to look it up on the Internet because I could find I could back engineer too. That day and was may 8th 2006. He was being honored. For like a lifetime achievement awards. Looks like that for the L. A Press club. And I had the opportunity because my boss at the time, Tavis Smiley was introducing him. I was seated at his table and so I had the chance in the occasion to talk to him for most of the evening. Just to talk about any number of things, things that the conversation itself wasn't remarkable, but it was good to see him just be himself. He was funny. He was irascible. He was irritable. He was all those things. He was there with his wife, and it was funny just to see him be amongst his peers and colleagues, and this was before it even started. As a radio host in my own capacity. I was working as a producer at that point, but growing up and I'm intentionally telling this story out of order. When I was growing up, there were three people. Who I knew that if and when I got the opportunity to have my own show, whatever former fashion, that might be that I was patterning myself after there were three people every step of the way. When I was growing up when I was a child. Would listen to KBC Radio. Sorry, no disrespect, clarify, but I was listening to KBC when I was a child. And it was the show called the Ken and Bob Company Kinmen Yeard, Bob Arthur and also Paul Harvey would dues news and commentary. Every single day, and he would do the short vignettes and he would end everyone with Paul Harvey. Good day, Paul Harvey. Today. Or he would do these other type of expanded form of vignettes with what she would call The rest of the story. He would tell this historical fact. And then he would always closer with And now you know the rest of the story Only Now you know the rest. Of the story. And then along came James Lipton. He was the host of inside the actor's studio. And he had this quiet grace about him where he knew how to close the distance and create this intimacy between himself and a celebrity guests and be able to get these great anecdotes and stories out of him or her. And I knew that I want to do something like that. And then after that came Larry King, so we have Paul Harvey. James Lipton and Larry King and Larry King started out as a radio guy. Just in case. You didn't know that he started out as a as a host in Miami, and he started off just interviewing anybody and everybody. It could have been the janitor. It could have been the guy literally next door. It could have been anyone, but it demonstrated how everyone has a great story to tell if you know how to pull it out of her or him. He was a master at creating that intimacy where the interview we forgot that he or she was being interviewed and just having a conversation with Larry King. So when you thought him during Larry King live, and he was sitting at that desk, and he was physically leaning forward, both elbows on the desk, leaning into the guest, and he was leaning over a physical radio Mike Harking back to his time in radio. He was doing what he had always done, but in the televised fashion, and instead of talking to a third party in terms like the radio audience, he was talking to that one person and remember he would you interview newsmakers he would talk to entertainers he would talk to sports figures. Have you noticed this kind of what I do here in the Mo Kelly show? It's not by accident. It's not by chance is by choice and it all is a derivative off Larry King like, for example. Back in 1987, in example, the newsmaker listen to how he starts off his interview talking to this recognizable voice. Donald Trump, the multi millionaire real estate developer, is sounding more like a politician these days than America's most Grandiose and controversial builder when he disagrees with a matter of policy, he does it in a big way. Today, he sent $95,000 into a full page newspaper ad appearing in many papers criticizing the administration's foreign policy rumblings in the Trump camp point as far as the presidency. Could the Manhattan magnet be eyeing the White House? Or is he just calling a bluff? Are you a Republican? Donald? I'm a Republican. Yes. So if there were politics, it would be as a Republican. It would be, I guess is a Republican. But I don't see that there will be problem politics. That was 1987. How precious was that conversation? That's a news maker, and then he would follow it up. Maybe talking to someone like Mike Tyson and listen to this from 1997 the conversational style where he's just getting Mike Tyson comfortable enough. To be able to just talk with him. And Larry King would always say I never learned anything While I was talking in the sense of an interview, I always say no when to get out of the way of the guest and let the guest talk. That's something I specifically took from Larry King. This is 1997 concerning that this may be of use to you. I don't know. I spoke to the arm usual friend Jim Great today. Worked the fight Saturday night, the whole film or a fight and who spoke to the chairman of the Nevada Athletic Commission and others, all of whom said that what you said The other night is not true. You're not banned for life. If you continue to act in the example profession you are they expect you to fight again? I'm good. That sounds good. It's the first time I ever heard that before, Mom. My acknowledgment. I'm sure from your acknowledgement anybody else knowledge today but we was under the conclusion was banned for life. But there are so nice. I have to be good. What I have to do so we don't know. They said you're doing fine. You staying out of trouble? Does that bother you to be effort at your age to be told? Stare the trouble. You know, it's just hard, you know? Listen, this is very ironic that my personal life has nothing to do with, um Any panics to happen by the ring. He was so masterful. He was so masterful in the way that he may have had cue cards on his desk, but he did not rely on them. He did not look at them and was very different from what you saw by maybe what Johnny Carson was doing. There was a physical intimacy where he would want to make sure that you as the viewer or the listener. We're comfortable. And felt like it was just a friend talking to you and also the guests as well. He was so masterful, and I am so thankful that I got to learn so many things because of him implicitly and explicitly. I learned how in many ways some people have called it being a generous listener, really listening to a guest and knowing that they're giving you something, especially knowing how to follow up. With that answer, Because of that answer. At least it's your next question, as opposed to just ask you another question and not really paying attention to your guests. I will miss Larry King. I can't say I knew him, but I was so proud to have been able to meet him. And talk to him for just one evening. Larry King gone at the age of 87. This is the Mo Kelly show. Okay, If I am 6 40.

"From NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York. The new documentary at Casa. Oh, my home opens with scene of otters, geese, fish and Children, all sharing a lagoon. Camera pulls back and you see you're also in the middle of a city with tall steel buildings. Highways. The Children are always on the lookout for Many bureaucrats from Children's services. The lives of these nine Children of the Inaki family living in an abandoned urban landfill on the outskirts of the Romanian capital that becomes a protected ecosystem. That the heart of this film, it's celebrated for its cinematography at Sundance and is now available to stream online. Rather journey took is the director and he joins us now. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me, you boy. What a film! How did this large family come to live there? It happened 20 years ago when decree knock it. The head of the family, the father of the nine Children on decided that after spending a few months in prison Getting fired from his old job as AH, Laboratory chemist assistant Hey, decided that this world is not the fittest wonder for him. So he decided to move his family in the middle of this abandoned piece of land close to the city center of Bucharest. And that's where he stayed for the next 20 years in the hopes that his loved ones will be protected by the things that hurt him and made him take this decision. Yeah, I have to tell you, Um It's kind of hard to like to father, Mr Inaki. It's It's not easy to like him. I mean, it took me some years toe embrace him as a human being. Rather than black and white character. It's hey, took some decisions that I didn't consider it fair, Especially those decisions concerning the Children. Like what? Tell us what we're like isolating his kids from proper education from from proper health care. I mean, after these Children moved into the city, they discovered for the first time running water or hold wonder, or, you know all the things that we consider basics off Mother life. They were just discovering as a result off the father, isolating them from from the world. And it wasn't after I became a father that I understood that there's so few things are none that you wouldn't do in order to protect our loved ones from the things that you know hurt, you know? He passed away a few months ago again. Yeah, so deep inside she was a very sensitive human being and the way he was treated by society, and those great years off the nineties must have been horrible. Uh, as a generalization, Do you think the Children were happy? Oh, man, that Z. Not an easy question. I think there were there was happy as we were when we were kids. When we only needed our basic needs to be fulfilled in order to have enough space to just enjoy the world and discovered it on bones, and I think they were happy. Um, they became more and more unhappy after after moving into the city. Obviously, it's interesting to in the film. Speaking for myself, you don't realize the family is Roma. Until the Children begin to hear it shouted at them under being bullied because that's when they heard it for the first time. Yeah, the younger ones and talking about full on Rage against them only for having darker skin on D talking a bit different. S so it was a shock for us. I mean, we live in this quiet country and we're quite aware of the realities of some of the minorities living here are facing But we never know that it's so in your faith. You know, at the surface, you know that Jessica has died. Can you tell us how the family is doing now? Integration sometimes happens over the course of generations, especially for four people that come from minority that have been abused and discriminated against for centuries. But at this point, even during filming with Bill, this thing that was called the social Project, a Casa Will be built A platform on then invited a lot of volunteers, but also doctors and educators, social assistance, psychologists and so on. And we mediated all sorts of services and resource is for the family in a way that was appropriate for their Peculiar social situation. Peculiar is one way of putting it absolutely extraordinary and unprecedented. It is that and from a social point of view, any authority from any country would have been overwhelmed with their social case..
