It's it's it's always based on you know something that is like this. Contribution they're making artistically. It usually moves around and realms that are not just at the lowest common denominator. I guess but if we are going to be the lowest common denominator. Which i'm not mad at. It's not bad thing to be in every single household across the world. I think about like these different things.

Part of ms is being very identifiable being your own brand in some respects. I mean it's yeah seems like up until say five or ten years ago you could kinda get by with. Maybe you know some success at some level at radio or tv ad or something like that but to your point there's a so much music and it's all your fingertips at the end of the day.

Mind that's been turned into a career but through a very interesting way through a health journey really so it's a really advanced grade. I love sharing and it really revolves around how my human journey must furby gang collided. Or we're going to get into that but first let's let's build up to that a little bit and talk about growing up. I know you're one of seven kids and were you the only baker all the kids or did you have any other siblings set. Got into it with you. Yeah i pretty much was the only baker. i think. I got into it because my mom didn't make too much. She by was very with other things. Obviously and so you know. I come home from school and feel like it resigned my duty to make chocolate cookies for everyone. That's kinda how i newly dovan had i is just. I would learn recipes. I read cookbooks. Baking magazines and really treated my siblings as like my little test kitchen. When i was younger so i have a lot of fun. Baking memories from when i was a kid. I'm sure they appreciate that and they still. I'm always the one that brings the bait. Good sabri party and i. I'm like tired of it at this point. But i don't think they are. And where do you fit into that seven kids. Are you one of the younger ones older. So i am the third oldest and this girl. And so i. I kind of feel like i had this To some younger siblings. I had this kind of like motherly duty with them. They were were worn. When i was you know in third and fourth grade my youngest siblings and i treated them like my real life be dolls and i can remember when i would take care of them. I bring him milk and cookies. All these fun things with them and that really count and some of my Leader passions speaking as well. And now that you're all grown up and so are the other kids. Are you guys still close absolutely. Yes so we all live in the los angeles area which is very cool. And i see them all the time and i feel really blessed to be close with them geographically but also emotionally to.

I remember Coming back from a trip as travelling during spring break college in coming back and literally. I had a kid. Remix of extreme summit has it's because i eat something. I'm not quite sure. But i realized that it was because lavish traveling. I was eating certain foods. Every single day and those refrige- again normally e and. I noticed that there were certain foods that i couldn't digest like a normal person and so i kind of started removing those foods for my diet because i just felt terrible after and so that's what i noticed digestive issues and it makes sense now looking back because about were your slater's when i was diagnosed with my autoimmune condition i feel probably originated in my guy.

You get back from spring break your energies dipping yet. And you notice that. There's some certain foods that when you remove them you start to feel a little bit better at that time right. And what were those foods at that time so it was anything starchy really rice. Potatoes oats like just noticing. I couldn't i know this sounds weird but things that were white starchy pasta. Things like that did not set well with me. And naturally i felt like i digested things like specials. So much better. I remember feeling like if i had bread or pasta. Like it's just going to sit in my belly. That's literally high fell and is really interesting. Matt flash word. I don't know about five years later. When i was seeing functional medical doctor the first thing she told me to remove were grindings. Those were things that i didn't feel good. I knew that they were culprits. Wheatley removed some for my diet. Then when i was told by my doctor to remove them. I did it cold turkey and really starting to feel better so leading up to your symptoms beginning in college.

Cicero and the Catiline Conspiracy
"On january first sixty three bc e. marcus tully. Cicero was elected as one of two consoles. Rome's two most powerful leaders. They presided over. The roman senate approved laws and commanded the army during national crises. It was a huge accomplishment for anyone but especially cicero. He didn't come from established society family his city was conquered by the romans hundreds of years before as a result he was considered an outsider. But over the years. Cicero established himself as roma's best lawyer. This gave him the support to enter politics where he earned a reputation as a fair and efficient leader from there. He achieved the console ship. There was hardly time to rest on his laurels. Though being console in sixty three bc meant dealing with rome's intense superficial unrest. The lower class believed the wealthy were taking advantage of them. Cicero suspected that they along with a handful of double-crossing senators. Were plotting something devious. But he had no idea what this was probably on his mind when he went to bed one night in october sixty three bc just a few hours later a servant cicero. It was a matter of life and death. Cicero got out of bed in greeted. His guests led by crassus rome's richest man. They told cicero he was right about the plot and should call an emergency session of the senate they needed to discuss what to do with the traders. Cicero was grateful. They believed him but they needed more evidence to which crassus handed him a pile of letters. Cicero read one then another and another. They all said the same thing. Some of the senators were planning an uprising but it was far more brutal than cicero had imagined. The letters revealed their plan to gruesomely butcher. Their political opponents before taking control of the government in cicero was their number one target.

What to Know About the First Ever Olympics With Transgender Athletes
"On a story. We brought you last month about LGBTQ athletes from around the world vying to make history by qualifying for the Olympics. Was a week to go before the Games opening ceremony in Tokyo. The list is expansive, a record number of out athletes are set to compete, said Ziegler is sports writer and co founder of Outsports. It's a news outlet that focuses on LGBTQ issues in sports. He's been keeping score. Said. Welcome back. Thank you so much. Alright. Well, first of all up until these games no openly transgender athlete had ever competed at the Olympics. So how much will the landscape change when those games open next week in Tokyo? Well, there are three athletes going to Tokyo that we know of Chelsea Wolfe as part of Team USA. She's a BMX freestyler. She's a reserve athlete, so Chelsea is only going to compete if one of the two Americans can't compete. Quinn is a transgender, non binary soccer player who is going to compete on the women's Canadian soccer team, but the one that's really going to get the headlines. Laurel Hubbard, a transgender power weightlifter for was competing for New Zealand. The past. Laurel has won a couple of medals at World Championships, Never a gold, but she's the one people are really talking about. And what's the conversation Ben about how or if transgender athletes should be competing in the Olympics? Well, of course, you have a lot of people who see this large woman and say that it's unfair that she's competing, but a couple things that I want to point to number one. Weightlifting is by weight class. So Laurel is competing against the largest size women. It's not as though she's competing against women to £100 trying to lift weight. The other part is that Laurel has far and away exceeded the regulations that the international in Pick committee has put in for transgender

Not just the New York Times, but the Washington Post and how other media basically covered up the Holocaust. Now That's a pretty damnable charge, don't you think?

Where Estate Planning and Social Inequality Meet
"I'm richie philanthropy. Jesse vice admiral flint pod. Chris miller and today our guests are laurel and riley carbone kern founders of tall grass estate. Planning their goal was to create a different kind of law firm when they're reaches out to people who are routinely overlooked traditional law firms or people who are hesitant to work with traditional law firms we talked to riley in laurel about social justice through estate planning the lord of the rings and why everyone needs estate planning even sar on the deceiver enjoy. We are very excited. Have riley and laurel kaduna kern from tall grass estate. Planning on the podcast today. Hello both of you view. Elo mainly grits. Thank you welcome. Mo- more popular of the two of us. I would say it's all the incheon. Listen we fight over the attention. That's always been our problem. And i relate to. That aren't i don't have to fight for our listeners. They're going to be asking this point why we are having an estate. Planning company on the podcast. So we'll start with the most basic question which is how is estate planning social justice issue. I recognize that estate. Planning sounds like feels like smells like the most untold listed whitebread topic. Anyone has ever thought about. We are as spicy as as yes manny's however we are grateful to be able to do a fair amount of pro bono low bono work and we see in that practice a number of things pop up like over and over and over again people who their grandparents great grandparents own a piece of property and then didn't know about estate planning and so now they're in a situation where like fifteen people own it To be able to like apply for grants for certain things they would need to track all of down or pay for a quiet title action. It should be something that is giving them wealth insecurity but instead it's costing them money to have this asset and if you know what state planning is if you're willing to hear about it and learn about it It can really enhanced generational wealth for for non. Just you know middle class. America or or upper class market but like literally everyone. And that's why it's so important to us to help. People understand estate. Planning is for every single person. The the misconception is that estate planning is about figuring out who gets your stuff when you die and there's a whole lot of people who look at their lives and think i don't have stuff so who cares That's that's a wrong understanding of what it is. It's really just about making sure that the right people are in control at the right times of the right things and what we see your your question about it. Being a social justice issue is that there are massive disparity in who plans for that kind of control and because all of us no matter. What our demographic Racial status religious status nationality cetera. All of us are subject to losing that control because of disability and death because of the disparity in who plans there's also a disparity generational wealth and the influence political influence financial prosperity. That come along with that so over generations you see the disparity linked to you know we think of as as a as a pretty clear as one example reinforcement of systemic racism. Disproportionately people who have large amounts of money are larger. Amounts of money are thinking about doing estate planning right. It has occurred to them. Hey i should probably do a power return. He get a trust in place right but the reason that they're doing that planning the things that they see may be happening down the down the line in their lives and being possible. Those things are possible for every single person regardless of how much you have but if you have a plan in place it's gonna affect your life and your loved ones a lot differently than if you don't have that planning in place
Why Leaders Need to Get Better at Changing Their Minds with Adam Grant
"Guest. Today is adam grant. Adam is an organizational psychologist and a ted speaker who helps people find meaning and motivation at work. He's a bestselling author and he's also the host of worklife a great podcast. You should check out in his new book. Think again adam challenges us to slow down and stop doing an executing all the time and actually spend time thinking thinking about our business where it's going what problems we have to solve. Why is it that we have such a temptation to just stay on that treadmill of producing an executing and we never stop and make the time to think one is that whip rewarded for what we deliver right and it's sometimes hard to connect the dots between cardi. I've got a bunch of new ideas or a fresh perspective and and what that actually means for my small business. I think the the second thing is we get rewarded for doing things. The same way over and over again that gives us excellence of execution. It helps us build productive routines and then we get really comfortable in our best practices. And i think the danger of that of course is that we don't look around ask if there are better practices and i think what a lot of us end up doing. Is we think too. Much like preachers and prosecutors. When we're in the mindset of preachers were convinced. Where right when we're thinking like prosecutors were proving people who are challenging us wrong and that means we stop thinking flexibly and sometimes we fall into the trap of foolish consistency and we see this happen all the time with huge companies right. I don't think that that berry or blockbuster kodak or sears. Had any problem with doing right. They were great at executing. The problem was they were executing the things that made them great in the past and they missed out obviously on a bunch of digital disruption. Some of which was brought from the outside. But if you look at a kodak they actually pioneered digital imaging and then they said no. Our business model is selling film. Obviously that didn't work out very well for them. and i see the same dynamics. In small businesses pretty regularly where people are unwilling to rethink their strategies their products services on some of their practices that have driven their success in the past. And and that means sometimes we get trapped instability where we should be embracing change. I love the kodak example. Because in hindsight we can all see how they actually could have become instagram me. They were the market leader in photography. And had they been thinking this way. They could have shifted that and caused that revolution. Knowing what you know what you studied that goes into this book. Think again if you could go back and be a consultant into the executive team at kodak at that time what do you imagine they would have been saying that was keeping them entrenched in. And what would you tell them about how they were thinking and the opportunity that they would miss if they didn't change the way they fought that such an interesting question. Well i would have. I mean it would have been great to introduce them to the future of the internet. Talk to them about how we were. All going to be posting selfies. One day but i think long before that where i would have started would have been to talk to them a little bit about the fat cat syndrome right where we tend to rest on our laurels and get complacent when things are going really well. And that's the perfect time to shake things up because we have the resources and slack capacity to do it. And then i think the next thing that i probably would've done is i would have encouraged them to stop preaching that they were right. Stop prosecuting me for being wrong and instead think a little bit more like scientists daniel one of my all time favorite experiments was done recently with small business owners in italy. So they're all pre revenue. They're taking a three to four month. Crash course in hottest start and run a business. They all get the exact same training and education. What they don't know is that half of them have been randomly assigned just to think like scientists in the way that they build and run their businesses. They're told your strategies just theory. Go do customer interviews to develop some specific hypotheses and then when you launch her first product or service. That's just an experiment to test your hypotheses and it turns out that group that's just encouraged to think like scientists over the next year they bring in on average more than forty times the revenue of the control group which is a stunning effect. Right and the major reason why they're so successful when they think scientists is that there are more than twice as likely to pivot they. They run their their first product. Launch or service launch and. it doesn't work and instead of doubling down. They say you know what i guess. I learned that my theory was wrong. Or hypotheses. didn't work in this market or a need to rethink my minimum viable product. And i would have encouraged kodak to do the same thing. I would've said okay. You all are great scientists when it comes to figuring out how to process film and build a camera. Why don't you apply that same. Ab testing that you normally do with products to your strategy to the kinds of products that you create to how you run your company and let's just let's try the digital camera. You have the technology what's going to happen if we roll it out instead of waiting for a couple dozen get rolled out first and then saying lips. It's too late. What are the hallmarks of thinking like a scientist that we don't see when you're thinking like prosecutor or a preacher who i don't think you have to own a microscope or telescope writer even a lab coat thinking like a scientist to may just means you favor humility over pride and curiosity over conviction. That means you know what you don't now and you're excited to discover things that might actually teach you a fresh perspective or you know an area of expertise that you don't currently have access to and one of the things that scientists do best at least good scientists right sometimes. Even scientists don't think like scientists but good scientists is is somebody who says i'm knocking to let my ideas become my identity right. I'm not going to start to define myself as as the kind of person who only leads a certain way. Or i won't define us is the kind of business that only does one thing and i think that flexibility is is a huge part of what allows the scientific thinking mindset to allow small business owners to continue adapting and not only responding to change the world but actually creating
Author Cassandra Clare On How She Creates Memorable Characters
"Just like laurel rings. There's a big cast of characters your books and series. They always have a lot of different characters that we meet throughout when you're constructing that and going through the draft process and kind of outlining how to make sure that that those characters can stick with readers. How much do you kind of do beforehand as far as flushing them out or having an understanding of the personality of the elements of that character. before kind of The to include them in your stories. I would say that. I do about fifty percent beforehand. You know. I want to know a good amount about the character. You know i wanna have the sense at least for me. The most important thing is of what they want now more than anything else was this person. Want more than anything else in the world. What's driving them. And then secondarily. I would probably want to know things like what is there. The thing that hurt the most in the world what's their greatest loss. Who is the person in the world they care about the most. Who's the person that they hate. You know you want to these sort of big stroke things that give you the shape of your character but i also feel like you one can get lost in making notes. You know you can make notes forever about a character or a place and You have to you kind of run your characters like a like a rat you have to run them through the maze of war. You learn what they're like entirely. You're never going to know your carter completely. Just making notes about them. You have to put them in the story and run the store and see how they respond

Don't know that a lot of footage exists. You know it wasn't all so Graham specific I mean. Some of my favorite footage. This in Laurel Canyon Product is footage of him. When Graham decides to go, get those rhinestone suits down. For nudie seats. Yeah, they're so amazing. Amazing those photographs and we have some footage of that which was cool I. Don't know how much stuff exists. Gun is a lot of photographs of Graham you know, and we use a different clip of Graham in the breeder brothers in the eagles film, but yeah I don't know. How much more exists. We didn't. We didn't have a ton of stuff up mostly what we have been photographs. Apparently Graham hung out with Keith Richards a lot. Asli. Yes, yeah, yeah. They were. They were best friends which. I hope I hope there's footage of them hanging out together somewhere. Again their photographs I. Don't know about footage. Yeah must be somewhere blast last person that we. mentioned. That was kind of fun to see is Alice Cooper. He's all over the Laurel Canyon Seen Yeah. Yeah Great I didn't because I think of him as a metal guy but Zappa took him under his wing. I didn't even know Alice. Cooper was Laurel. Canyon seen I didn't know he'd lived there. I didn't know he was connected with Zappa in that way when I interviewed him, he told me that story showing up at ZAPPA's house at seven. Am I guess? That especially back, then shown seventy how? Exactly, that's how he was doing. Serious about making are wanting to make a go of it. Analysis. They were so nervous. They came in their chrome pants. Anyway. Yeah, it seemed like for example was kind of like Mama Cass. He was kind of nurturing musician as well as was yeah people into his fold, and if he liked it, or even if he didn't get it, he he wanted to be a part of the of their seen or try to understand. Mark Bauman of the turtles went onto to. Play with ZAPPA, After the turtles disbanded so there. There's a lot of of people floating in and out of each other's. Of lives musically and otherwise in that whole era. Very incestuous. What was there was a lot of an exposition scene where there was A. Convertible driving in Laurel Canyon. What was that? Did you recreate that or was that something? That's you found. We Chew re-creations with. These with well, we did both helicopter and on the ground with those cars. We had the green car part one red convertible in part two. We just wanted to. Because you know car. Driving in those canyons was such part of their lives and songs on the radio. It was just a device to. Be Literally driving around in the canyons. The we shot that stuff. We also shot a lot of material and super eight and some of it. You probably can't even tell whether was. Old Archival footage or recently shot because we intentionally shot on super eight and kinda shaky. Made. It looked like it was organic from the time of very effective because it took. To that was great. Did they touch on the radio at all I mean we? We're kind of both of Holly Radio Background I. Don't know if they mentioned like being heard on cage, J or Kfi Wbz Baas radio or the importance of radio. Yeah. Yeah, well Jim plays a role in part to. He actually starts off. Yeah so. So the radio comes in in a bigger way in part to end, but also what was happening. All, everything, not just the music on the radio. The world is through seeping in through radio television at started. You know it's landing in the living rooms in these places We Watch Kent State Happen from a House Canyon that we recreate it going into recreating something. But what did you do to recreate that the atmosphere? Well, we we built this set actually at our director photography. Sam Painters House out on his balcony, and we I mean it was pretty elaborate, but we gotta chair in an old television set, and we did. We did it as a time lapse thing, so the city behind was getting darker and darker and darker as the night goes on. Yeah, I mean we just. PROPS IN Set Design all that and it was. That shot took a very long time to get. It was like I think about I. Don't know five hours for that one shot Did, you grow up using super eight. I mean like your I. I'm sure you've made some student. Films was at Super Eight. What was your your your going? Super Eight Steph I was more of a photographer when I was a kid. That's not I did shoot super eight, but you know when I was a kid. It was expensive to get it processed to. Show it to and everything, so I took I started as I was actually photographing from time, it was like nine years old. When I was twelve, I was actually getting paid to do portraits. So that's that was my answer. I always wanted to be journalists reading National Geographic from very young age. Turned into a documentary so yet. Logical transition. Absolutely? We love the sea. We Love the Laurel Canyon scene and someone who could really bring it together I. Mean there's been a lot of movies or documentaries trying to kind of encapsulate what exactly happened and you seem to have accomplished that it's really it's A. It's a wonderful viewing, and it's a it's available and epochs right now. And it will be beyond there for awhile. I assume, and then probably I don't know things come out! You. Can get like blue DVD's and not. Coming up a lot about this I don't think that they've thought it through yet. There's a rights issue which may be Because the music rights I don't think they paid for D. release. So. That might have visited all that in order to release that went, but there's no answer for right now, but it will. It's GonNa. Live on ethics for quite a while. Imagine so people can catch, and if they don't have ethics aren't check it out. They can do a seven day. Free trials being offered. Excellent. Perfect, thank you again, Alison! This was this was a joy and we look for all, thank. You. Guys. Thank you so much about? Well well, that was great fun. Thank you so much to Alison Ellwood the director of the Documentary Laurel. Canyon which is available on the ethics channel. Thank you so much for tuning in Make sure you check us out on our.

"It's we know what's coming up. Is the the Manson murders and all that going on? How do you think that affected the music of Laurel Canyon? Well I think. I mean there was always a dark even in the first half I part with. The story seems a little bit lighter. They're still a darkness. undertones there. The civil rights movement is happening and you know. Violent things going on the Vietnam is raging in these guys are draft eligible, and if there's always this underpinning darkness there, but I think in part to what happens is darkness becomes immediately connected to the music scene directly with ultimate with the deaths of ultimate. And the hells, angels being there and then Manson, murders and Manson was tied into the music. Industry was a wannabe rock and roll star. Who got these crazy people to follow him so? I think that the darkness was directly from the music connected to the music. I think change things a bitch, and also these artists growing up and maturing and becoming aware. And conscious of the world around them in a in a much bigger way. I mean it's funny when you think about for what it's worth being. Everyone thinks it's about the Vietnam War was written about these kids who couldn't get into this club protested you know. It's you know the demeaning. It's been signed attributed to after what? Other than was originally out it's it's really cool so I think the music. Shifted a bit, but there's still there's a lot of lightness in part two. Also, it's not all doom and gloom by any stretch of the events nation. It's just you know reality you know reality strikes. These artists are getting older. Plus frankly the drugs changed. It went from those by. which had a profound impact on everyone and it was a bad impact. It was you know. It it was dark drug. Talked to David Crosby a lot about that little bit. Lebanon talked. About it, I mean one of my first questions. Everyone was what Laurel Canyon smell like, and they all said pot. And then another question. was you know what happened when it changed when the drug shifted some pots, Kokin seventies and they all were like. Yeah it just it took the life out of it just sucked the life out of something that was so beautiful before. Did you talk to David Geffen wasn't I. Don't remember Okay Yep. I guess that was another part of all sudden. These these managers like Elliot Robert Glad you got him to. That's wonderful. That's he's he's. We did the last interview with him before he died. Yeah, but but yeah. It's wonderful that you were able to get that. But yeah, suddenly I think a lot of these businessmen started to realize. Hey, we can make a lot of money off this, and that's I think that change is seen as well as that. Was that something that you gathered as well? Yeah, definitely, and I mean a Elliott and. David at least certainly in the beginning lan, especially Elliott was really good guy, and had an David, was to and had the best. Interests of their artists was foremost, but they also certainly realized they could make money and others came in after them in really realized. I could make money and that's also when it shifted. These and these bands you know. These artists went from playing at the Troubadour, four, one another to and supporting one another. To playing, you know stadiums in Colossians and. Making huge amounts of money into the scene. Just sort of has slowly. Faded out, but they're still I mean. Did you? You find? They're still a scene in Laurel. Canyon, there's a lot of contemporary artists that are are still that still play there. I mean you drive through Canyon I still once in a while, I'll see someone at the country store playing guitar just on the corner. Yeah. It's still very healthy scene. Yeah no absolutely and what's been interesting, and Kobe is the Laurel Canyon Society. They've been doing where everyone plays music out their. Doors and windows, so the music's now wafting out a across the canyon again, which is really cool cool. We didn't even talk about love a little bit the band. What Amazing Band But they kind of. Handed the baton off to the doors. Because they. They were not happy. Or why don't you tell the story of love or what? I did not know this at some. People that effort destroyed before, but I didn't know it before. It's just amazing. It's the. Love had signed with Elektra. They were there only rock band at that point and they weren't happy with electro. Electro wasn't in their minds promoting them enough. So and they got another offer. That was a really good offer, but electro wouldn't let them out of their contract, so Johnny Arthur decided well okay. Let's get them to sign the doors, and then they'll let us out of our contracts and we'll go on and sign. Much better company for us, and so of course they beg Holtzman to go see Jim and the doors play, and in the film you only goes twice in reality. He went three times both times for the first two times. He went he just like I. Don't get it. tagging all over the stage, and he just didn't the third time he was on fire, and he's like Oh. My God they signed him that night, and then all the money that they would at would presumably spent on promoting love got switched to the doors and love of got left in the dust. is a sad story, but it's an amazing one. They didn't have anything in writing. That said that they could be. Better can terminate their contracts if a if the doors were signed to the label no now. Now they pushed the doors on a million nate at taking over. Your love. Continue to make mazing music but I don't think that they were or are as known as they certainly should. Yeah I. Agree and I I didn't even think about it at the time, but you. You mentioned the film that. When they toured the south, they they were not allowed to play I mean that's insane. They were allowed to play fake a segregated audiences which they refused to. Always hard for us to imagine. Well, is it you know? Gary. It's like you'd think we should be so much further alone and look at where we are. I guess knowing that is apropos now right now without knowing the story of Love, which I didn't know either. Yeah, yeah, Johnny was lovely h optimum. That's great. Did you. In his eye to. Did you have a lot of Arthur Lee footage or what or the to remain. There's some of that footage of love at home. Movie step is so wonderful of them running around in by slick regularly around the cars driving. There's some really fun footage wasn't. Them though. It wasn't obviously. We tell their stories, but still. That's amazing. What do you think that was? Guess the photographers mentioned that they didn't know what they were that they were filming. History or you know. There's a lot of there are a lot of cameras around there. There's more footage than you expect is that? was I mean it seemed like a lot of people had cameras that wasn't like phones, but but there were still people were documenting this this like..

"Street that's one where I had the music and just came up with those words. Is Girlfriend Pam had just moved into that place above the country store. She has a house and Garden I would like to see what happens. How There's a store where the creatures meet. That is the gaining country store. The heart of Laurel Canyon. Did you have more footage of the Joni Mitchell. Michelle is the only artists used on unscreened currently. That's actually a pretty long time ago. That that was shot, I was shot probably thirty years ago. Wow I thought it was more current than it not. But that's one of those scenes was one of my favorite parts where they ask. Who who are you and she stops for like maybe ten seconds and goes really deep into. Who is Joni Mitchell? When when actually they just want her name but that I guess that's insight into Johnny's thinking, right? I think it says everything about her like she. Goes to the deepest place that was one of the first things I remember. I was sitting with my editor going through that interview, and when that moment came up I'm like play that again and we played it again, I said. That's how we're starting this whole series. And obviously we found a place for it, but it's not. It goes on for forty seconds. And we let her to sit. I don't know. Only seconds to you. I know I got immersed in the to. It's just. It's crazy I, love it. Let's talk about the Laurel. Canyon seen in these parties and just kind of get together I guess the the hub seemed to be where Mama Cass Elliot lived. Yeah. That's this. Was this a weekly occurrence, do you? Did you hear what how often these everyone got together and I? Think it happened. I don't think it was ever planned. It happened quite frequently and I think that house was probably always people revolving out. I don't think the parties were ever planned. There I'm sure somewhere but I think it was during spontaneous. People would just show I think that was the gathering place. but people went really from house to house. The doors weren't locked. People walk into. Hey, look working on. You know it was a very. Special Open Time. Is that what you gathered from Mama? CASS, I mean I guess that's how she got her name that she really wanted to create. This environment is at Unfortunately, I've never met her of course. Everything I've heard about her. She was so warm and embracing and an encouraging and very nurturing of of everyone around her, and everyone was drawn to her, and seems like a lot of these musicians are at a point in. Of current interviews, but I think a lot of people. Especially I'm guessing David Crosby really wants to get this story straight or Kim I mean I think. He acknowledges that he was an asshole back in the day. And now he I think he had his own documentary. Remember my name. And I think I think he wants to get his story out there if someone asked me about, why didn't they try to make David? Crosby, look more like an asphalt on like well. You know I, think that I don't remember whether it's Roger or Chris Hillman. That says you know. The birds were more like not so much a band of brothers, but more like a pirate about. Sums it up. I think that I mean I can't speak for their motivation, but why they wanna tell the stories now I I suppose. SURE THEY WANNA get the story straight Jackson when I interview Jackson, he was a little bit combative. He's like it was. All the law Kanye step. It's just a myth, just a place. And then at the end of the interview, he said well good like it's an important story to tell him well. It's all a myth anyway. Let him have that same the film, so he was happy about that I. Think wonder if he was just being humble, or he really knew how special it was I. Don't know I I don't think Jackson. Says anything he doesn't mean..
