With matt miller to me conan really opened my eyes big time about the tv business and just pretty much anything in show business. That being good is not necessarily the end all be all because when he got the job for the tonight show. After jay leno retired yet he lasted one year then. They bounced him not because he wasn't the same funny creative subversive self. He was in the later time slot. It's just the average. American dummy the ethel and the jerry that live in the you know fly country which we are no offense to us and jerry care. They didn't they didn't care care for his style humor. They wanted something more bland. They wanted more comedic or or or they want right. They want jay leno. jay leno was safe. Jalen was familiar at so he got such a raw deal.

"Hey Kareem welcome to Latino rebels radio. What's up? Thanks much Adamy. How's it going? I'm good. I had your creative partner earlier this year. Christina who I've known my God I've we we have a mutual friend. So, I've known Christina for like ever, and then it was weird because as I was prepping for this interview, I listened to what we did about the Walter mccollough documentary and like a true astrologer. Lake Sheep. Like the predictions. So you can have to give to confirm all this. Now I mean it's kind of UNCANNY. The things she was saying about the documentary in. And then boom. Well listen I feel bad for you because Christina is both the smarter and Prettier One and I am just allowed one so. Yeah IT'S A. Back. Under. The intro like she does the military we set this up everything's under control, and then you come in late you're like, hey. Like. Thing. And another thing. Yes. So, listen. I. I, know I. I know I know the origin story so I don't WanNa get into it, and if people really want to hear the origin story about how this documentary came to be. We will link to the original. So this is an extension of that conversation. But so I wanted to have you on because of that but also to talk about representation in general were it's going next your thoughts. Let's start talking about I about this. You know I think it was a sensation. When it came out I mean. Yeah. I mean talk talk about it talk about. It feel. Wait. A minute. So we launched on Netflix July night. Oh my God. It feels like he'd launched like. Okay. So it's Depending on, you ask I'm sorry I depending when you ask either it was six days ago or six years ago Leno. Yeah. So tell me how has been has been. Changing or creatively. Awesome. It's been a little bit of both it's surreal how it's been. You know. We made the dock in. In you know the whole journey was just really crazy but just really the the end of his you know we finished the dock. Sundance November I walter died November second. So that was just a moment of that was a weird coincidence. But then we had to go back to Puerto Rico Puerto. Rico for the funeral we were there for a week we to Sundance. Saving. And then we I I mean I say this with both humility and pride, and then we got into every vessel that we wanted to get into. Between what the funding With release and the world shut down with Kobe and And so Some of those most of us all those actually. To others got cancelled. So it's minute really weird I felt that in the age to yeah it's been really weird. Re experiencing this all from my living room like from my kitchen table. Yeah. It's so crazy but A. Every day with a new thing you've you've heard of either new famous person who's seen it or we've gotten a new message from another part of the world somebody who's discovered Walter it's been a little spin really surreal but I mean now how fun I mean we made the movie 'cause like Latinos we will say as Latinos we had the leverage in the honor to have walters part of our lives for decades, and we made the movie because we wanted to share him with the world at large to see that actually happening. It's wild. It's crazy. So you know it's funny. You say because when I did talk to Christina was around Sundance. and. You. Know you go out there. I mean you guys I remember. I saw the pictures of you guys were like, Hey, we are premiering. Hey, we're. We're in the CAPE'S HEY, here we are. And and the net flicks announcement happened around like right at the time we dropped the podcast with Christina. So it was like my God this is perfect that was. So. You're so right about just being physically present what your creative you know. You're there. It's like it's done. I'm with people. This is this is this is going to be a great year and it still is a great year right but but you're seemed to be celebrating it in a very moral. Distant way, but is it satisfying I? Mean I must be.

Jim Cramer & Rob Maurer Discuss TSLA Stock

"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit. And when you have a person who's never driven a car saying, this is like the greatest thing ever doesn't think of as a car and then you have the coordinate nut Lisa who says, this is the greatest thing ever and you have a CFO's very rigorous who said look they can raise the money I said, what am I doing? Why am I fighting the truth? Why am I fighting progress? So rob I surrendered and the best qualified made this year.

Gabrielle Union Files Discrimination Complaint Against Simon Cowell and 'AGT'

"Gabrielle union I there's some news about Gabrielle union yeah in fact she filed a complaint Thursday so Gabrielle union you'll remember let's back up a little bit we'll just say that the headline is that she has filed a discrimination complaint against America's got talent's producers along with NBC universal will we'll talk about the details in just a moment but I do think it's helpful to back up and remind people that this is not the first time they've heard of Gabrielle union's harassment complaints against NBC universal and America's got talent so let me just give you a little background on that we talked about that I actually can't remember the specific when new time this very fleeting at this moment do you are you tight when we initially yeah I talked about and that was like a month ago maybe actually you know what I have to be to win new terror it was November of last year okay we learned that Gabrielle union had a complaint a number of complaints to lodge against America's got talent but specifically Simon how you remember that's when we learned about for example the story about Jay Leno making a racist joke during a commercial break that they were filming so all that was you know just under a year ago but then and we knew stuff was going on behind the scenes because NBC universal had talked about how they were addressing the issue but we really didn't hear anything else well apparently being made the negotiations which they were in the midst of conducting were not enough order Gabrielle union didn't feel that those negotiations were leading to the results she was hoping for which it seems that is the reason that she went ahead and filed this complaint and I should say that this complaint is actually very likely a precursor to an actual lawsuit so that's that's that's what I know about blackouts I'm old I am I never happened just works okay so sorry technical difficulties over okay so this is the will so we're now in the precursor to a lawsuit that will be ruled out by Gabrielle union for these discrimination allegations likely I read the story in variety which talks about how this is all laid out and what the complaint actually is who it's to and I can tell you that the complaint itself was filed with California's department of fair employment and housing and it name specifically three outfits FremantleMedia Simon cowl's production company Syco or Sicko I don't know he said it's probably not psycho and then NBC universal and again those D. F. E. H. complaints are usually precursors to a lawsuit and Holly brought this up during the dirt alert so the NBC entertainment chairman Paul to like be he has also been accused in this recent complaint of threatening Gabrielle union through her representative for speaking out against the racism on the set that she felt she witnessed okay so this is like an onion right like the layers of an onion yeah there sure initial allegations that she shared publicly and you said it was in November past that well that's when the story broke we should say about her because you'll remember she and Julianne Hough four let go and I think it was shortly there after that we started learning that not all was well right so so there's that like sort of pod right so like you know she talked about things not being so great on set in November and then just in the complaint of that or the public awareness of that then she starts to experience harassment as a result of speaking out yes so when she you know made those those complaints public apparently she claims that she faced pushback and directly threats from the head of NBC's entertainment okay S. and you know none of the people that were names I believe are speaking with the exception of a spokesperson for NBC universal and here's what they said very categorically quotes the allegation that anyone involved in this process threaten his union is categorically untrue we took ms unions concerts CERN seriously and engaged an outside investigator who found an over arching culture of diversity on the show NBC universal remains committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect it sounds like a very boiler plate you have to lease you know cover all your bases response it does not address the specific our issues brought up in her complaint and her people are taking you know everyone to task as a result I I'm not going to read the full response from her she I found this interesting this little side note but she's got this person speaking on her behalf and it says that he has power of attorney his name is Brian Friedman I'm not I'm not sure if that's just her legal representative but I'm I'm wondering if it's because of like coal bed that she he has to act as her power of attorney because maybe she's not able to be wherever interesting racing or maybe that's just totally standard but like when our attorney Mike white is Gabby union union you need our

What is Code, to Our Evolved Mind?

What is Code, to Our Evolved Mind?

"A philosophical discussion can be had about the role of code and our lives. But I I want to set up some backdrop and a little bit of theory for this exploration. Today for the sake of today's thought experiment will accept the idea that humans have evolved over some very long period of time. The length doesn't matter all that much other than to say it's very long to optimize for survival and that the vast majority of that period was spent in a world that looked very different from ours today. This idea that the human brain has evolved for a world that seems to kind of Lurk beneath the surface of our culture and all of our kind of social practices today and that. It's actually suppressed by our civilized instincts and the societal norms. This isn't a novel concept this idea. That Lord Lord of the flies style somewhere lurking underneath all of this. There's more primal instincts but this concept is useful for confronting some hard questions about how our brains perceive that code and that brings me to my next point for the sake of this discussion. We'll talk about two distinct concepts the brain and the mind now. This is absolutely a physical philosophical minefield in I want to be careful here in suggesting a dualist mindset as if those two concepts are truly distinct when I refer to the mind or the brain in this episode you might substitute the concepts of conscious and sub-conscious thought we're essentially talking about the raw processing of information which is what the brain might be doing versus the meaning making of that information. Which is what the intangible mind or consciousness might be doing the thinking about that information that you've processed is that meaning making on the one hand our brain processes information in that sub-conscious realm constantly sometimes without our explicit consent. This is how we can accidentally convert. You know cell phone into a gun or a stick into a snake. This is particularly true for things that we see as threats but on the other hand we dream up our own realities in our mind intentionally. We imagined objects or situations that don't really even exist and sometimes even can't exist our brains in some interesting backward. Fashion are subject to this kind of sensory input as well what we imagine. We process in many ways as if it was real even. If it isn't a short dive into Google can give you some more scientific background on this particularly if you look for the idea that our consciousness itself is a reproduction of the output of that raw processing of data around us. In other words our mind is actually making up what it thinks. Our brain is processing is experiencing so if we are re projecting actual reality and it certainly seems plausible that are imagined realities could be processed as if they were real and this is exactly what research shows. And it's how we can have things like memory substitution. We remember events from our childhood as if they happen us but it turns out they happened to a close family member in. This happens because years we tell that story over and over or that story's told to us over and the actual memory begins warp as we replay that over and over kind of like a VHS tape that's been played too many times instead of getting scratches on the film. You're replacing characters. But I want to get us back on track here out of that philosophical realm about consciousness instead talk about how all of this relates to how we deal with code when we encounter it. Misses OBVIOUSLY PRETTY COMPLEX? So with this complex backdrop. Let's talk about how this ancient brain of ours in our modern context and frankly kind of confused. Mind trying to bridge the GAP BETWEEN THOSE TWO. How we can bring code into the picture? We're going to talk about that. Chance encounter right after we talked about. Today's sponsor winnowed one of the amazing things about developing expertise is that it often starts small. It may even start as something fun. Play as an engineer. You probably know by now that we as a community of people take play very seriously and playing around with some code can lead to some really important outcomes both for the industry and for your own career. And so if you don't have the proper play ground to actually test your ideas out. You can be easily disadvantaged. Now howdy make good playground. You start small but then you make it easy to scale up. And that's exactly what Leonard. Does Leno's plans start at five dollars a month and they scale all the way up to Super Production Services basically think. Gpa You plans for a processing and dedicated CPU plan so that you don't have any steel between you and another one of Leno's customers. All of this is based on this idea that having Reu access to a Lenox server is one of the most powerful tools you can have as developer.

Behind The Scenes Of The Linode Object Storage Service

"Today I'm interviewing will Smith about his work on building object storage for the Lenovo Cloud Platform. So we'll can you start by introducing yourself? Yeah I've been with winnowed for about five years. Now I originally worked on our transition from the hyper visor to KVM which was a super exciting project I since then moved on to working on the new API that we launched two years ago. And after that I was moved out of the Storage Project. And do you remember how you first got involved in the area of data management? Well Leno does a lot of data management what with hosting virtual private servers and everything but specifically with object storage. They already had a prototype. Developed of an object storage cluster. Based on Seth and they just wanted to bring a team of villagers into productized which is kind of where I came in. And so you mentioned that you started off with this steph prototype wondering if you can just give a bit of an overview of the current state of what you have available for object storage on the Leonard Platform and some of the motivating factors for building it out and managing it yourself rather than building an integration with

"Since nineteen thirty three when her and vicious stage mother put her into the Chorus Line of Harlem's famed cotton in Club Miss Horn has been on stage and in the public eye over the years. Leno's had developed the sultry inevitable. Lena Horne singing style. How for which she is known throughout the World Lena's first big break as a singer came in nineteen forty when she was hired by Charlie Barnet? Who at that? Time was the leader of one of the swing. Era's top big bands after touring with Charlie Barnett's ban. Lena artistically. Psychologically season struck out on our own. Tom I in Manhattan's famed Cafe Society Downtown and then in Hollywood there she was discovered by an MGM talent scout who promptly signed her to a long term contract. Her film debut was far from auspicious considered to lie for Black Parson too dark for for white parts. She was relegated to musical scenes that had no connection with the plot and consequently could easily be cut from reels earmarked for distribution in the south. She did over star in a couple of all black movies. Stormy weather in nineteen forty three and cabinet in the sky. Also in Nineteen forty-three Lena Horne was Hollywood's first bona fide black glamorous Dr the first black actress not cast in stereotypical made the and mammy roles to black across this nation. This may assemble black achievement and pry doing World War Two. She became the pinup thousand thousand. Black G is many of whom went into battling jeeps tanks and aircraft named after her considered by many as the most beautiful woman in the world. Zero Lena takes a beauty in stride. I spoke with Lena on tour with her one woman show and asked her about her status as a living legend laughs. Ask that question yet. And everybody needs. City has asked me I think I think what you really mean is survival aval. I've been around long time. Yeah feels good to live this long. I I hope that My youngest granddaughter. WHO's thirteen will be less blase then my other ones who are eighteen and sixteen Then not interested in traveling abroad. Oh sing the sites that I thought I was working toward taking my children and my grandchildren on the grand tour of Europe and even including Africa Africa now but One of them was born over in Europe and Two of them from New York of been everywhere over there when they were little title and they're not interested and I'm praying that the thirteen year old and still is not too blase to take a trip with me. If I'm just hold out that long I oh. I think women shouldn't really be that insecure. I always was. I wanted to have a better figure. I wanted to be beautiful well. I wanted to sing like aretha Franklin if they had been Retha when I was born I had none of those things and I made it. You know so. I think it's pretty you silly women won't be like me they should be beyond and they shouldn't be in this in our use of Uso Tours and on the cabaret circuit and in her social life. Miss Horn has always been an outspoken advocate of civil rights do on the historic march on Washington in nineteen eighteen sixty three. She addressed a crowd of demonstrators. Miss Horn help breakdown. Jim Crow and entertainment during the nineteen forties and fifties by insisting on contracts ensuring that blacks could not be barred from her performances in white establishments she also refused to entertain white. I troops during World War Two unless black soldiers were omitted. Also I asked if she considered herself a pioneer and about the state of blacks in the entertainment aiming industry and why. It wasn't portent for Lena. Horne to speak up about civil rights. Lena Lena Horne. I spoke up for myself often.

Stand-up, sketch and satire: The rise of Indigenous comedy

"Charlie Hill was a legend on the stand up comedy circuit. Almost every indigenous comedian will cite hail as their inspiration their motivation and hand aspiration and even though he passed on in two thousand and thirteen the laughter he created. Lives on hill was a member of the oneida nation of Wisconsin Wisconsin. His first network appearance was on the Richard. Pryor show in nineteen seventy four. He was the first indigenous comedian to appear on the tonight show with Johnny Carson and he also appeared on the tonight show with Jay Leno and made multiple appearances on late night with David Letterman. Here's the legendary Charlie Hill. I did this back in L. A. and they didn't quite get it you know they're not used to seeing is in Hollywood. Everybody wants to tables in a circle and they weren't quite sure you know in a in a heckler and I know that she'd never judge a man by the color it was neck or anything like that wouldn't want to hear their prayer Marica. And why don't you go back. We came room so I can't in his living room last week. I was in Washington. DC WE SEEK. Did he show where members of the American Indian Republican Party. Three in the next gentlemen ever met in my life and then coming out here to Canada airport searched and I resent that via need. You were as an alien. You'RE GONNA hijack a plane anyway. Take me to hope. So I'm sitting on the airlines. You know in the middle seat here redneck sitting on each side of me and I'm thinking you I stole my leg ripped up my culture but you're not giving these damn armin don't they. What do you nations? We have tonight on the commentary. Everybody Yawn your your nation. Okay one-two-three antastic. Just thought I heard somebody. I don't even Wanna be that's cool. That's okay we're all welcome here in the circle of humor tonight. Welcome everybody who came but we always CDs. He's one of the power they always WANNA be. So I wrote a commercial called generic they WANNA you tired of being left out in the cold with no native heritage on aware of your Indian roots. Or maybe maybe you have new Indian roots. You'll uncomfortable powwows. Well soon. You be out there singing and dancing with the rest of US thanks to. Yes one spoonful of generic in your native groups are starting to grow back instantly. You'll never appeals spiritually inadequate again taken as direct the generic increases wisdom and stores and makes you one with the universe where we're script in so try today when someone asks you your travel really just say generically you made up what you know. What in your heart art? Gosh inside of action include suicide poverty disease religious persecution and general of land the recorded. That would've picked comedy.

Polynesian Explorers

Polynesian Explorers

"Thompson has been in examining oral histories the records of Captain Cook and the accomplishments of the Polynesian voyaging society. All to investigate what it can tell us about how we view the world. Today she pieces together the navigation puzzle of sailors and settlers in her book. See People Christina. Welcome thanks for having me. So when when we think of Polynesia talk about how big it is and what it has in common culturally so Polynesia is the area that is inside of this triangle we'll formed by Hawaii in the North New Zealand in the southwest and Easter Island in the southeast. It's an area of about ten million square miles and it smack in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it happens that all the people who live on the islands in this area which is the island's that people have heard of like Tahiti or saw more or maybe the mark cases they all share a common cultural heritage. They all speak related languages and they have a similar genetic. Ming up no Christina. You say ten million square miles and originally they were not populated by human beings at all so somehow people had to get there and there was no communication. People didn't right. They didn't have metal tools. They didn't have navigational devices that I can imagine. Can you just kind of paint a picture to the best that we can. We're were there caravans of canoes just going out into the unknown C or how did these islands become populated originally well. I think one thing we don't know is how many canoes necessarily sailed together but basically the idea is that you know some thousands of years ago over in what sometimes people call the island nursery Sirri of Southeast Asia in the islands around the Philippines and Indonesia and stuff people developed an outrigger. which is this thing that sticks out from the side of the canoe to keep it balanced to keep it from from tipping over and with the development of the outrigger people started to be able to make some longer distance? Voyages and the canoes the Polynesian sailed in were like Catamaran's they had to halls else and they were stable and they could carry a load of people and animals and so they started making longer and longer voyages. There's some again some thousands of years ago from this western side of the Pacific out further and further and further into the mid Pacific. But it must have been hit or miss because they didn't have maps. They didn't have radar. They didn't know where the islands were if they were islands. Do you think they were just kind of going toward the sunset and hoping to hit land now the sunrise is actually but they obviously looking for islands and the islands are what they call inter visible. You can see one from. I'm the other in the Western Pacific. A lot of them are. There's a big leap when they get past that point and they start to sail out to islands that you can't see so they're probably exploring hiring and looking for them they really were amazing navigators. They weren't sailing blinds. They understood how to go to one place and sail back from that place after. Remember where that place was and things like that. They must have been exploring but we don't really know how they found islands like the end of Hawaii. Which is the islands of Hawaii are very isolated in the North Pacific? How did they find them who knows because we have no written history people? Just build a raft. That was kind of like one of those early outriggers Imagining how they might have done it and just without knowing if they did it prove that they could have done it like those. Expeditions seemed to be part of science right right so the the earliest one was was to Harles kon-tiki raft which he he allowed to drift basically from the coast of South America and ended up in the middle of the Pacific on the tomatoes. And that was an kind of an early experiment in this vain but then in the nineteen seventies in Hawaii some people got together and decided to try and build a true replica vessel so a copy of what they imagined. An ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe would been like and they decided to try and sale it from Hawaii to Tahiti and back again and that was the beginning of what what is really kind of an experimental voyaging movement in Hawaii. And what was that expedition called. The ship was called Hokule'a it Okla has made an around the world voyage now but that was in two thousand sixteen I guess but between Nineteen Seventy in two thousand sixteen they have made voyages absolutely everywhere. They sailed to to Easter to New Zealand. All around the Pacific to the point is to prove that it could be done yet to show the voyaging capacity of the Polynesians basically to show that non instrumental. Navigation vacation is really a thing and that people can go very long distances using it. You know that it's a real technique. You said they sailed it. Is it drifting with the wind and the tides is it with a sale or is it paddling they have a sale. They have a steering paddle but they sail. What were the very first contact with European society like in the Polynesian World? Some of them were violent. Some of them were not. We don't have any idea what the markes ins thought of men Donya when he arrived Zeppelin we know record of it and what I mean. There's the record of the Spanish but we don't really know for sure what archaisms thought There was a little bit of that I think. In some cases there it was all in some cases there was fear in some cases. There was something that you might call. Greed greed Westerners. No on the part of the I mean I. I think that a lot of islanders actually looked at these ships once they realized kind of what was going on and who these people were they actually wanted the ships. There are definitely stories of ambushes. Did they have some kind of A religious context again in the case of the conquistadors from Spain I mean in their religion I understand. It was on this certain year. A man on a horse you know was going to come and on that certain year the man on the horse with the beard came just like their scripture said and they disfigured this must be divided and they laid down their weapons and was there any kind of dimension of that local cultural religion with the arrival of the first Europeans pins or was it the opposite The story of Cook's arrival in Hawaii is kind of like that story that he arrived during a festival in he seemed to be the embodiment of the deity. Who was being celebrated in the Festival because switches to happen that he arrived at that time? I think that that added to the confusion of cooks experience. AGREEANCE cook was killed in Hawaii. That was where he died. And it was not long after this encounter during this festival period and I think it added to sort of chaos and confusion that he had Iraq during that a period. This is travel with. Rick Steves talking with Christina Thompson. Her book is see people the Puzzle of Polynesia and we're talking about early explorers of the Pacific both before the Europeans arrived and after so captain cook arrived and they thought. Oh It's a festival in here comes God and then things went sour and they killed killed them. Tell us a little more about that. So what happened. Is that Cook. He went up north to Alaska and then or the Northwest Pacific and then he came down and when he came down he was looking for a place to rest his crew and he sort of hit the island of Maui and then he went east so he sailed all the way around the big island before he found a place to come to rest his crew and that meant that he was sailing in his ship all the way slowly because against the wind all the way around the big island for quite a while and so when he arrived the legend of Lono the God that he sort of seemed to be representing was that Leno passed around the island in the same. I'm way he was represented as carrying a staff with White Tapa cloth on it which is sort of like the the ship to mass in their sales so just a lot of things lined up kind of strangely initially and then what happened was he. They went through all this festival these festivals and celebrations and then Cook sailed away and that should have been the end of it he should have just sailed away that would be fine but his mast broke just offshore and he had to return and when he returned he wasn't supposed to return according to the legends. He wasn't supposed to come back until the next year. So people were confused by that and then there was an altercation. He died in the clash not long after he returned.

Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'

"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in.

'America's Got Talent' Has Problems

"Has another Pr Mess at minimum and possibly Sibley more than a PR mess on its hands. This is not NBC News. We've talked about that a lot you know. Obviously there's Ronan Farrow's book. Why didn't they report the Harvey Weinstein Story What happened with Matt Lauer. Did they cover up for him. That has been a whole mess in and of itself But this is now NBC. The broadcast network. America's got talent. They did not pick up Gabrielle Union. For a second season she was there for only one season She was a judge and that has led to reporting following a a tweet by her or a number of tweets by her husband. dwayne Wade reporting the about a culture that in allegedly was insensitive at minimum minorities Racist if you WANNA take it. That far that she had been told repeatedly for example that some of her hairstyles were two black black. Allegedly that She had reported an offensive joke by a guest. Jay Leno to human resources but the higher ups would not We're actually formerly report it. There was an allegation published in one report that there was a ten year old black rapper that she thought had talent and she was advised not to support this child but to support white dancers because supposedly what was said was we need me. Need people that America ARACA can get behind. which would lead to a question about their definition of America but this has now turned into a flap? NBC is responding. Yeah I mean they have had to respond and they had Gabrielle Union in her representatives into a what was described as a five hour meeting with investigators to discuss this SAG Astra has said they are going to look into this. Because she's a member of that organization and you know they've got a real problem because any of these things are true and she was dismissed Complaining about it that's retaliatory. Normally in that situation you know a check is written and A settlement is made in this case. I would suspect that she would want more than money that she would want. Meaningful steps taken. Now this doesn't just involve a NBC. It involves fremantle the company that produces the show and psycho which is Simon Simon Cowles company and she among her allegations are that Simon callow made this environment. Literally unpleasant with cigarette smoke constantly smoking with nope doors on the dressing dressing rooms so you could not escape the smoke and I have to say you know you say well you know deal with it but the fact is for me. That kind of smokey environment environment literally makes me queasy and would be a problem and it's obviously unhealthy and it's obviously against the rules. But this is what happens when you have someone like Simon Cowl. Who is you know has got this huge amount of power. Yeah He created the show and he stars on it. I mean this is a textbook example if these allegations are true of the kind of coddling of talent that networks are notorious for and allowing people to get away with certain behaviors that the average person doesn't get away with and you know we think that in this time's up in metoo era that a lot of this behavior is being clamped down on but if this is true and cows being allowed to just be a colossal jerk worked to everybody then that's not okay. I'm going to quote the former. America's got talent judge Howard. Stern who said CAL sets it up so that men stay no matter how ugly they are no matter how old no matter how fat. I'm paraphrasing slightly. No matter how talentless then he says why don't they change Simon. This is the ultimate example of boy's club and I would just note math that. NBC Says It's going to investigate but in the news division. They investigated themselves and that has been a huge issue going that nobody has forgotten about I.. I think who's paying any attention and so it's going to be more of that. I don't think this problem is going to be resolved. Yeah it's the same question of whether they get an outside investigator or whether they do it internally it says we're on the same merry go round round and round. Thank you thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood

Is there any other kind and and productive meeting on Tuesday during which she expressed her hope for real change at the network union and fellow freshman. Judge Julian huff dismissed November. Twenty second second since then claims of off color jokes from guests Jay Leno and concerns over unions hair and wardrobe choices as being described as quote unquote to black have emerged urged shows workplace. Culture prepares to go under the microscope. In the meantime union has received support from former. Gt judges including Sharon Osborne and Howard Stern with the the ladder calling the Simon callow produce talent show a quote unquote boys club and if anyone would know to recognize a so called boys club it would be Howard stern yeah. Stern spent four seasons as a judge on talent. And here's a quote. He says quote he sets it up that the men stay no matter how ugly they are no matter how old they are no matter or how fat they are no matter how talentless they are and that's of course Howard Stern talking about Simon Cowles selection of the judge's panel he went on to say quote he replaces the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger.

"Wait but people we treat everybody with respect so when it came along near the last couple of years we we have to salary I took a salary cut to keep everybody on board so they all like that and when they when they heard if I took it ten o'clock show they can all work for another a year and a half they said would you do. I said let's do it so we did it. Fox are ABC. I mean the the there were other networks. That would have fired you to host an eleven o'clock. I know L. but you know would've would've gladly brought your staff with you as well. I'm sure well no see my staff couldn't have gone because they they all have individual contracts with NBC NBC and they could've gone taken somewhere else or it. Wasn't that easy and plus. I'm a very loyal person. I'm the you know. The you have is probably going to be better than the one you're GonNa get and that was always my thing. I I liked the executives I work with the ones making the top decisions. I didn't know but the ones that Ha- all right so okay so they'll do a ten o'clock show okay fine so clock show and that starts another whole thing problems I got had accused of because shows like law and order and stuff for non anymore and then that was that was my fault and I was this was this was a big deal. Well Yeah Plan. NBC's was a big swing for them and their idea was cut costs yeah and then it producing big dramas at ten o'clock do a earlier version of the tonight show. I mean I remember them. I just happened to have read an article. not happened to. I was researching for this article. Well I read an article in the in the maybe the New York Times or something from from the time that that quoted in an NBC executive saying like look don't don't quote me on this asked but if he did a one point five we'd still come out ahead which you know this was when network television still doing pretty good numbers but their their their idea was that because it was so much less expensive to produce it would be you know you wouldn't have to you know you'd have to do pretty good a few million people to watch but yeah well the thing that really screwing curtis otherwise the local affiliates complained because there's a bad lead in the eleven o'clock news so they wanted me to move the monologue to the end of the show so people would say watch the monologue go rhino well that does it work stupid idea so the whole thing sorta went down the tubes and and then Conan show is not doing that well either which somehow was my fault. Apparently you know well. I mean for this. I mean the further in part I mean in in part because our lead in show he's trying to figure it out but also in part because you know for the same reason that the affiliates wanted a strong lead in the news right like they're just were a lot fewer people watching a talk show then might have been watching on or let our numbers were. We had bad lead INS when I was doing the tonight night shows. I mean you know when you get these shows. Your job is you're supposed to be able to pick it up on your own you know but calling on the air for what five months before we came along so the ratings were it opened initially well but it it. It didn't hold on very well so it. It was an awkward time all all around. I guess you'd call. Did you ever talk to Conan about it. No I never did I don't really know him. That wasn't like David. I don't really know I always felt there. There was when I would watch the show they would. They had a character a little Jay and then they make fun of headlines and all this kind of okay well. It can make fun of me. That's fine you know. They're waiting for the day you know. I went to donal Myer. When Conan was on literally a week to week renew on. I said just pick the guy up for years so they can relax. Everybody can do their job. He'll do fine and he was funny. I liked CONAN. I thought he was good so I was stunned as anybody when that whole thing oh you're being really nobody nobody said a word to me and we never spoke about it and that was that was pretty much if you had to over would it have been better to just take the same money from ABC and doing eleven o'clock show up against Conan. I mean you're probably to some extent still the bad guy in that situation because you're petitional. You know the Nice thing about making mistakes. Is you learn from them so I wouldn't change anything feel. Would you do this differently. No because mistakes give you you empathy for people you know I remember when I was when I was watching the cosby trials and all that stuff that was going on here these people these women are stupid. They should've of now well. No you don't because you when you were a kid. When you're young person you don't really know you know I remember being ripped off and lied to and when I was when when I was a kid and I knew was being liked to as it was happening but because won't maybe there's some maybe he's not no. He is so no so I I think mistakes. Make you smarter make you stronger so I wouldn't do anything differently and actually turned out fine for me. What would you say it was mistaken. What did you learn from it. the mistake okay. I was in Boston and I went to a club. I meant I meant in in the situation. When you host the Jay Leno show in what I would have done differently. I know what I could have done differently. as I said I didn't have a manager or an agent. I I didn't know that's a mistake or not. It saved me a huge amount of money just because I didn't have anybody but no I don't know what to me. You Rise and fall on your own ability awesome what people think of you. I mean I'd like to think that I was funny and I was easy to work with and never missed a show didn't throw tantrums trump's so NBC new okay. This guy's pretty reliable. Put Him back in eleven thirty. We'll we'll see what happens you know so and that that's what happens so it actually worked talked quite well. If you imagined what your comedy is when I mean I'm guessing that you're not quitting because you show no signs of slowing down the have my stroke. I'm sure but if you imagine what your comedy is when you're eighty two years old. I don't imagine it's much different I mean you try to be reasonably hip to you know you don't. I WANNA be talking about Reagan's trip to Pittsburgh. People what what but that's that's the. Nice thing about going out and working because you see comedy. You can't quit. I give Eddie Murphy a lot of credit man. He is coming back and he's going to do a big netflix special. It's hard to stay off the road for fifteen or twenty years because because your instincts suggest you have things you just you don't even know you know I the way I would practice is I used to say my act and then try to write a letter with my with my hand while I talked and see if it made any sense and I got to the point where I could write a letter and talk and that allows you to compartmentalize. I can think of an ad Lib about this subject while I'm talking about what I'm talking about. When I turned to that guy it looks like it just came up with some ad Lib but actually took a minute or two just think about what is going to you. Say you know so. You've just gotTa keep doing it. Musicians know off the road for ten years and then come back with an album. Oh my God but you can't with comedy comedy. You've got to constantly keep doing it. You know I mean a classic example that was I did all the material in this last tonight. Show with Jimmy Fallon and I read a blog where Leno say material. I Assam two weeks earlier. It's a comedy magical break in that material in well yeah. It's still new material you gotta do it. Somewhere like like somehow wasn't new. I the two weeks earlier you're busted J. Hilarious doing material more than once well Jay Leno. I really appreciate you come back on and Wednesday night. Don't worry we'll we'll have tied yeah. We'll have tons of stuff and I really enjoy the show. It is a really thanks thanks. I appreciate that thanks for taking the time I appreciate that. It is a fun car. Show where you do cool fun car stuff that I wanNA watch where the host hasn't assaulted did any of his employees.

"I took the joke out and I was better for you. Know and that's what it's like you you learn how to how to play an audience like it's an orchestra you. WanNa have to me. The perfect audience is male female black white every kind of there's no. There's every kind of personality. Keep you honest so you're not doing gay jokes because the K- eight group over here are female jokes the worst kind of audiences when you do like an all male business conference and it's all just guys and huts huts the worst because I tell my act to appeal to just a little bit of everybody you know. I'm a very happily married guy talk about that so that now I get a certain warmth of feel from this part of the crowd and he just learned it is it is like an officer you look out and you see this vast and you try to get a certain kind of laugh a certain certain feeling going and people walk away from the show and they like you because there are a lot of comedians that people think are real funny but they don't like the person they just think that guy's got some funny jokes may seems like a mean guy won and that's fine. That's your persona but that's not mine. You know the idea is if you if they like you you have a job. That's not that funny. They'll roll with you. They'll turn it over to you. Get to the next show. If that makes any sense you did twelve minutes to fourteen. Fourteen minutes of monologue jokes the whole time you were hosting the show. That's a quick Jillian jokes well. The thing you realize is there are only eighteen guests in the whole world mean anything anybody else's just filler reality star people or whatever and I always tell people whenever they i.

What podcast be this troubled waters where we disagree. Disagree is Bulls Eye Jesse Thorn. I'm here with Jay. Leno he is of course he's Jay Leno. He posted the tonight show for decades. He wears denim shirts with blue jeans. He likes cars. He's hosting a show on CNBC. These days called Jay Leno's garage. It is a lot have fun. Let's get back into the interview when you're I run as the host of the tonight show and Ed you ended up hosting a ten o'clock show before the tonight show hosted by Conan O'Brien and by then I think you had made some like professional changes in your life in an attempt to avoid like I mean that you had like are you you didn't you weren't you didn't have an agent manager in age of twenty thirty five years okay and that was all gone by ninety two okay and I think part of your goal there was to avoid the kind of acrimony from and pain that had happened previously in your career well fire it was to avoid somebody's speaking for me right to me. I don't really care about the money. What are you GonNa do to settle this. WHAT DOES PROBLEM I. I'm one of those people. I don't like to go onstage unless every problem is solved problem solve. I have a clear conscience. I have a clear head. You know I believe in Karma. I believe what you give out. You get back every time. I've done something thing wrong or something against my nature. It's always come back at me tenfold in a horrible way and I always try to avoid that so it's like yeah. What are we GONNA DO I. I know even if I'm not at fault look. I apologize inside this happened. Can we move forward okay. Thank you very much to shake hands and everything has dropped for. Oh that's just my way. That's just an easier way. 'cause it's hard to do comedy when something's on your mind if you feel you've really hurt somebody or somebody some pain. Hey you wanna get that settled when he get that cleared up before you before you take the stage. Did you anticipate the pain that came out of. Have you taken that ten o'clock. Show know what it was was they were going to give that show the they'd come to me once when I'm just sitting there one day and oh combines. Oh Okay we want you gone. I say but guys I'm stuck here for five years okay so you had in other. You had a for people who don't remember didn't know you had a deal to you had to basically a five year contract to finish to do the tonight. Show I think the idea coenen basically to keep CONAN around. They gave him a five year contract with the promise that at the end of the five years you will take the tonight show. That's what what it was. That's what it was yeah yeah but then at at the end of that you took you took a show at Tan well what it was was Connor was doing great at twelve thirty thirty then Craig Ferguson came on and then Craig Ferguson started to do well in some cases may have been got an early actual numbers but okay okay then that were came to me and they said you think you'll go to ABC or something. After this leaves I said well. I'M NOT GONNA lie to either talking to me. They want to move over there. I said how about a ten o'clock show. I said well it's ten o'clock. Show won't work. It's I think that'll work and they said well. I'll tell you what we'll pay your staff the next year and a half whatever it is guaranteed them everything and everybody in my staff. I had the same people for twenty three years. I I don't turn over writers. I don't turn over over produces. My thing is he's treat people right. You can make a good army out of anybody can make a soldier out anybody if you treat them properly my thing. I always got there at seven thirty hours the first one in the last one out and I have my office is dead in the middle of the the room it wasn't you know the executive producer had the room the bathroom and all that kind of stuff because I just sat down. I wrote jokes. When people saw okay then they appreciated the fact that I was putting the same amount of time as they were and anybody buddy anybody could stop the train when I did it? They could just pull the cord and go okay. What's the problem. Is You know my apple got stolen either figure I. Let's take care of the Apple. Okay Stop the tonight show.

"I can't believe forgotten all that material actually pretty funny yeah. It's pretty solid I. I really like I mean you know. Genocide is fundamentally tragic etc but I like the idea that genocide is something that let's do the gang's all here. The real trick is no letterman sensibilities. Sensibilities and Letterman is an excellent wordsmith. He was always a great wordsmith and to me. I always get annoyed at comics. I am not against obscenity. It's fine. I just find it boring. I don't find it as a punchline. Here's somebody call somebody in a whole. That's not really funny. So when Dave I always to try to come up with names that would I know he would laugh at us at the carnival may have these syphilis druids running dry run on the right say they have no shirts on and he would would go Leonard Druids. It's right David and he and I would just go back and forward over that all the time. Maybe the greatest connoisseur of like a super flat word dislike that way. I mean I remember one time. We're talking. I never even got to the punchline but it was. I said you know the old Manson place the other day just to see some of the got all the old Manson. Oh you know it hasn't changed. Dave you know since sixty nine and we just started with. Dave kept repeating what I would say over and over again. It was just very funny it. There's a lot of fun. I don't know how many people are close with David Letterman but the two of you had known each other for a really long time and weren't at the very least least friendly colleagues. Do the two of you ever talk about the tonight show before Carson retired. I think Dave took a pretty hard when he didn't get it. I think so too to characterization sure sure yeah. It was one of those you know it's interesting. I like to think it worked out well because he got the critical acclaim and I got the popular vote and we each left with something okay. I was the guy you know the gut. The highest rating Nice Number Day was the acerbic guide sharp and all the critics loved him the best and that's okay. I mean that's fine. You can't everything but Yeah I. I say. That was extremely difficult for him. I don't think he hated me. I think he hated the way it turned out and I became the butt of a lot of the jokes folks and stuff and the reason I asked if the two of you had ever talked about it before Carson retired is because it feels to me only having read about it you were there but it feels to me only having read about it that like it was there was an an absence of communication between two friends about something who shared this same goal of which only one person can have it and maybe you thought you know this is my dream. I hope they pick me and he thought maybe that they you know they had already implicitly picked him. Maybe you thought they had already implicitly permanent guest. What happened was I think Dave did not get along with the suits at NBC yeah and I think there was a lot out of he would mock them on the air all kinds of stuff and they took it pretty seriously. I remember one executive said to me. You know I didn't WanNA. Put Up the twenty years of that. I went okay. I guess that was you know and Jack. Welch was a pretty Jack. Welch was running. NBC At the time the head guy and he made decisions and he would go pretty hard at the company enjoyed. It wasn't like I think in later years he would joke about the CBS Primetime lineup right successful in a kind of relatively gentle way most people aren't mocking their own network and relatively gentle but he would go pretty hard in the on late night at the company in general right right right well yeah and and I think that that played a role in a two but ultimately all of it comes down to finances. It's where they think they can make the most money and that's really it's a business decision. You know the idea that one one person will you stole the show well. If I'm so smart. How did I lose it. In the first place I would always have the ridiculous ridiculous theories that the network doc had to pay me one hundred and fifty million all they didn't and they don't do that. You know it's just the only thing I ever had was different than anybody else. Had I always had a pay. A and play contract not pay or play people love pair play like so if you don't work they have to pay you and my attitude resorts. If if you don't work you had no value. Oh you to them so they just paying you just go away. Just get Outta here. We don't even want you anymore so I never took money for not working so all my contract. If I had a five of your contract they had to keep me on the played-out. Was it hard to enjoy the fact that you had achieved the dream of have teenage Jay Leno given that you were surrounded by public weirdness and especially given that it was an with an ultrasound yeah. It was hard to but I again I didn't. I never tried to believe the good stuff and I never tried to believe the bad add stuff so I mean you know what's funny. This is the greatest time in my life right now. I'm just having a ball a comedian now and I'm well know when you start most comedians to tell you. They'll say it took me five minutes but I got him up there twenty minutes before I got him or I never got him but there's always a time when you got him. Now you got them. The Mitch Walk Out on stage. You just have to keep them which is actually easier and and in and more and more fun. Yeah I've done a lot of comedy shows for fans of mine yeah and it's a very different experience than when my comedy partner her and I hosted a show at the Ice House for a month or two two strangers. You'd like people who like you going in. It is dramatically different right right but the affirmation of strangers is the greatest thing about being a comic. You don't want your friends in the audience and radio. It's almost it's not impossible. Make the jump from from radio to stand up but in some ways it is because radio my favorite thing is when I go to a town and hey jay the breakfast flakes. They're going to open for you in in the morning the morning zoo. They got how long do twenty five minutes right so you guys got. Hey Jay. We do five hours every morning. Okay I think we can do twenty minutes. Okay Great. I'm sitting there. They're out there two minutes. Okay please walk up Jila Jake because it's the exact opposite officers of having an act well. Having an act is the economy of words. It's the ability to have a joke every six to nine seconds but taking every six or nine seconds anything longer than that the boy they get a little bored so you've just gotTa keep it boom boom boom and my favorite okay here's his when you hear a Dj they were talking to this. You know here in the United States of America the greatest country in the world by the way I think we all agree with that or you know here in the US okay but you as a DJ. You're watching the clock. He got five hours to fill you. Just gotTa keep you gotTa keep the words coming and whether funny you're not you've got. You've got space to fill whereas a STANDUP. You've gotTa have jokes in every one of those spaces or you're just you're following the most legendary legendary late night television host in American history when you took over the tonight show right and somebody that you personally admired and professionally admired was there. Were there things that you thought are going to be the Jay. Leno things about well tonight. Show started. We were live live live for the first two or three weeks which means no edit no cue cards no nathen. I just had to I you just memorize the monologue because it was you know it was it was weird when I took over because there's a lot of animosity and you know I brought in kind of a different band and you know always just it was just a lot of animosity and and in some ways it was made especially tricky by the fact that I I don't know whether we're following the summer. Olympics whatever it was but there was some reason we were live live so the monologue had to be within six or ten seconds or when it needed to be and all of that you know so you had to keep all those balls in the air at the same time so it yeah it was. It was tricky tricky but I I. I like like pressure. I I work well under pressure. I like having a deadline. I liked that I liked pressure. What did you think was going to be different about the way that you did things. I had no idea I had no idea you just go out and you do what you try and find the things that work for you. The headlines always worked for me. Jaywalking worked for me initially. It didn't work work because I was doing johnny show Johnny Stage and in those days the tight shows set was here and then about thirty to forty feet away. You had these seats. It's a little bit went straight up like in a Broadway theatre almost like you're hanging and it was such a weird thing to look up to look up in this in the air and see the audience. I mean look normal on TV because Johnny's head would be high but you everybody was up there and and I just felt uncomfortable and we went to New York. I said to Don Omar's. Can we just move the people literally. Put Him on the stage. So what I walked out. I could shake hands and I could you know and I could see people's faces. Jason see the rise in his Co.. Suddenly it became much more normal to me and that's what we did. We eventually built a set so I had real close contact with people in necessary. I mean you're much warmer performer than Carson ever was and I don't mean that as a criticism of Carson I just talked about how amazing it. It was how cool he was like your well. I generally like people you know. I like to talk to people I find people pretty funny. I am very optimistic. Missing Person I think ultimately people do the right thing. I know that sounds naive but I you know I read this thing once at one in every six hundred people as a criminal and if you live in villages six hundred people you don't catch the guy you gotTa crimewave because this guy's every day and we have a cottam and it seems like everybody's evil terrible no that guy. It's just get that guy and you're fine and that's my that's why I've always been you know I always you play an audience audience like it's an orchestra. You'd learn how to read crowd. You know I remember once. I had a Hillary Clinton joke. I it's escapes me what it was when she was running for president. Sir and I didn't like the laughing because the audiences laughing I felt they were laughing at it because she was a woman and not because she was a candidate. It was kind of joke where I went. I would hear Ya like a real male guttural. I said Oh man I just I just didn't didn't like so.

"Make is a performer because they you'd say that you're not hungry. Anymore is the day you're not funny anymore the day you're you're out of it you know so even though. I had a ton of money in the bank I always acted like I was broke on the road. I'd Love Oh my twenty five dollars a day per diem and I would just sort of do that and I mean it's just psychological. You know if I didn't if I didn't work as a comedian. I didn't think I made anything because because the TV money would just automatically go into some bank account somewhere or something I I know. This sounds stupid but it is ridiculous it is but but it worked for me and what I what I understand is like the idea that I mean doing. Comedy is ridiculous so I mean I. I really understand the idea that in order to do something this hard and it really is hard hard. You have to have a little bit of the fear of God like you have to be. You have to be running from a dragon to get top speed a little bit well yeah. That's probably beat show but you know Seinfeld. I have discussion all the time I remember. Jerry and I were talking one time and said what if we took a vacation and we liked it then. We're screwed route. That's right. You're screwed now. If you're sitting on a beach I mean obviously there are downsides to this. I mean I live in beverly the hills. I have a pool. I've really never been in because every time I get to the pool. I hear that Boston Voice. What what are you. Mr Cool now will oh you sit in the pool in Beverly Hills. How do you not broken here. You got nothing need fixing really where you're going to sit in a pool. That's why people go by. You wave now. You're right. You're right. I cannot bring myself to go on. This just becomes to the point where it's I just feel as if that's the ultimate not now you've sold out now. You're lazy. You're sitting in the pool. I I mean the detail that I remember most vividly from reading the late shift. Was the detail of your wife going on vacation without you so I said I'll send her. A whole graduating class to Europe to me is like a bad day at Disneyland. I can't stand it but it's not like no but see I have a great marriage with the married forty years and and I love her and it's wonderful so it's not like Oh but she likes to me. That's just right now. I'm not suggesting that you would that your wife would go on vacation without you because you don't like each other but simply because you just don't see the value of clean on the value of going on sorry going to do a stand up gig in Fresno. What am I doing. It's worth well see that's the thing though because when I was broke I was was really broke and he used to sleep in an alley off forty fourth and ninth right in the middle a hell's kitchen and I remember seeing through the alleyway dykes lumber yard yard which I believe is still there and I remember sleeping in that alley and it was one of those alleys in relieve me. Hell's kitchen was way worse in the seventies indies than it is now and prostitutes bring jobs into the alley and I'd be like sleeping in the corner. You just hear the most horrible horrible to say. I'm just sitting at cry my eyes out one night just saying Oh man this is my life now really wanted to sleep in alleys and it just I. I just thought if I ever make it. I am not going to turn down jobs. I'm not going to be how much they pay. No that's not enough. I'm sorry you know I think what am I doing on Tuesday this worth this kind of money so that's probably the low self esteem thing. That's where it comes in and that probably AIDS in your success when you were guest hosting the tonight show. Would you have in your mind going to host the tonight. Show and Johnny Carson Retires No. I thought that would be a nice thing. I mean I mean you had told your our way out of highschool your later. Everything was sort of going that way but no I mean. I thought that would be nice. If it happens. I mean I became the permanent guest host which was a lot of time because Johnny was all fifteen weeks a year. You're so I kind of worked out so it seemed like the logical thing Dave was doing his show and you know people always think oh you stole the show I did I was I was a guest host for five years. I was on every night and NBC's mine they had successful show at twelve thirty the extremely successful with Dave and it's accessible show lengthier me guest hosting if they pulled me out move dave down why have no choice but had to go somewhere else or they could keep. I mean I think in some ways day was the victim was success that way because that's I think that was the networks thinking. There was no who who you know 'cause. It's all their choice. I WANNA play a clip of you on Letterman's show now the late night okay not allege. That was my favorite time of my life doing that show with Dave and I think you're I mean I you know I was the kid then only watched it on. You know bootleg. VHS tapes we'll send me in nineteen ninety nine or whatever but in these days a lot of it's on youtube right but you know you were many many people's fave on that show because the two of you while the funny show so continent. Mike really all the front dave was an equal with Johnny. I would always call Mr Carson Carson Jack John and I just I didn't grow grow up in an era where your parents friends you call them by their first name. It was just awkward and I couldn't go to Johnny Nice Tie Pal. You know it was like yes. It's from mclovin collection very loving collections with Letterman. I see I was I always knew what used to drive letterman nuts and my favorite thing I always get like a huge huge meatball sandwich or something and I'd hide in the hall and when I saw Dave coming down to make up I just end the whole each Ezekiel. Huck your ten. How can you eat that day. ooh. Why should they bring meatball sandwich out on the set day would be you know hilarious because Davis truly awkward. I mean hilariously awkward. You know I mean the definitely Dave and I when I made the tonight. Show my own. We brought the audience right up close and I would shake hands with people people in the crowd. I remember David Really Funny Bit when I say I want to shake hands of people in the crowd and he was behind a big plastic wall and he put his hands through the hole in wall to gloves in it and then he would shake hands with the gloves with few I mean that was the difference that was his version of making fun of what I did you know and it was very funny and he very famously aimlessly in the course of his program kind of winnowed the number of staff members with whom interacted down to the down to the barest which honestly as the owner owner of a company with twenty seven employees. I love all my employees. They're wonderful people amazing people including the winter sitting right on the other side of that glass but like I totally understand like I there's a part of me that would rather just work under my desk so no one can look at me. I get get home with my dog on my lap. Let's play. Let's play Jay Leno my guest on late night with David Letterman in the mid nineteen eighties yeah. What do you do for entertainment when you're on the road. It's lonely isn't it. Oh it's lonely. It's Rambo and come on the genocide movie. How about you. It'd be wise all the movie. I read the book which wasn't actually a book. It was a two page to page pamphlet. I got from the John on Birch Society and just kind of a simple thing. Rambo opens fire page to the end. You know you know what I love. I love when foreign countries get very self righteous about the United States like England now wants to ban Rambo because they feel the movie condones American style violence next along with meeting. Go back and reshoot some of the scenes in a soccer uniform. Make it a little easier for them..

"I don't really remember it was just another sort of water off the back type of thing all right. KFI My mother you know you gotTa do better okay. Mom will do better in school. Oh you know one of those deals. You know I mean it seems like you really I mean particularly for a comedian you know I think there are a lot of a hardworking folks folks in showbusiness. Sho- businesswomen exists without a ton of hard work but I think it's particularly I stand up like you really committed your life too hard hard work early yeah I mean I was. I mean like I said. You'd have to work twice as hard as the other kids to get the same thing and I would see that you know we go down in New York. Maybe I would drive down four nights a week five nights a week out of Boston to audition a comedy clubs when you were in college at Emerson College and you line up at like six o'clock to get an eleven o'clock spot and I remember sitting in line and guys in front of me. Go screw this. I'm not standing and they'd walk. I go good. I move up okay. Thank you and that always worked for me and I realized as I got older you know. It's not that I'm any smarter. It's just most people don't have the patience or the attitude or whatever to stick this out and that's you know I always looked. It's show business is a business not as a as a party thing. You know I mean I would when I was hosting the tonight show every night. You go home and you write the next day's monologue that night you don't go to Laker Games. You don't go to movie premieres you just write the jokes and when I would watch competitors for the most part they would do jokes for the first couple of months and then gradually they wouldn't have monologue. Hey y'all doing tonight. Good Yeah Yeah. We we gotta show for you tonight. Ah they really weren't saying anything to me. I realized that will never about me was about the jokes I always remember. One Guy said to me like you but I like some of the jokes you tell it pretty really funny. Okay great then. I realize it's about the product if they don't like you well. That's too bad. You're trying to make him like you but they don't like you. Hopefully they'll like the product and that's what I always worked for me. When you were coming up in stand up in Los Angeles Carson was pretty much a kingmaker like yeah exactly of everything he was yeah. Did you admire him as a performer as much as I always like any comedian that look normal normal and was funny without props you know I was never a big fan of the flower that squirts water in the lapel and all that kind of crap you know Zany Anush Zany wacky. I like people who just sort of started talking and Oh wow this is really funny. You know this is really good. You know what you know is shockingly. I mean for somebody like he retired when I was a kid so I only have like vague memories having watched them on tv a few times at when I like when he was on TV but watching his work now I'm struck by what Ah is very much being the host of the most important show and I don't. I don't mean like necessarily like well. See don't Oh forget before him. Comedians are usually funny looking right or if not funny looking odd looking like like Rodney like henny young men the Milton Berle with the mugging in the faces. He was had a boyish charm. That really worked worked he. Could you know back in the day. He could sell what you would call a racy joke something nobody else could get away with. He could get away with it because he had that sort impish boyish charm you know now. He's very very good and a lot of times. He didn't get the credit. You know people have said to me well when Johnny did there. Were only three networks he the only thing I know they put everything against him whether it was Merv Griffin and was Keith Brazil and I mean the new Jack Parr and I mean all these people and nobody nobody nobody could take him out he was he was really really the best. Did you think of him that way. As a time oh I thought it was very good yeah. I thought he was the one I admired most. Yes I mean I I remember in my high school graduation San. I'm going to go to California and hopefully be hosted tonight. Show I said no that's GONNA. Do you know everybody thought I was crazy. So at the reunion now I was a big hero. I mean that is crazy. That's crazy. Plan is a crazy point. It works for you. That is a crazy. They're not wrong longed for me but you know it's it's like if you have a thousand people throwing dice and Vegas.

"Comics of all time one of the biggest TV hosts in the history of TV hosts also a guy who by his own admission never got much love from critics the guy who got cast more or less as the villain in the late night battles with David Letterman Conan O'Brien all talk with them about those battles in the past now and he's more reflective selective but it's still hard to pierce the veil. It's hard to know how he feels about that stuff. One thing though is crystal-clear comes to Jay Leno. He loves to work above pretty much everything else so it won't surprise you to learn if he's spending what could be his retirement making a television show. It's called Jay Leno's garage it airs on. CNBC and it's not by accident that Jay has been doing this as long as he has is. He still a disarming interview still charming and Witty and quick on his feet. He's hilarious. He is very very good at what he does. Here's the episode from the newest season of Jay Leno's garage. He's talking with Charlie. Sheen and they're chatting about Charlie's role in the one thousand nine hundred eighty six car movie. Remember your kid. Who is when you come back as a car. It's it doesn't make a lot of sense to me still but it's a true stories obviously interested yes yeah. I've come back as this car but as a spirit wraith right to to seek revenge on the road gang that killed me of course all right okay my my brother works at a burger joint. My Ex love interest is now with the leader the gang so this is based on your own family hundred percent yeah you know because this is about the time platoon coming out right yes of course the Kademi award award-winning film. I shot this pit. Stop on the way to the Philippines to make La- tune so this came out in the theaters before platoon right came out and Oliver actually they went Oliver Stone wanting to saw it in the movie theater and called me so angrily afterwards. Why do you think this is going to ruin. He says you cannot do films like this. What is this movie about. What are you a car your car and perhaps you've ruined platoon jalen welcome to bulls. I'm really glad to have you on the show. Thanks that it was probably the most enthusiastic thank you ever received. Appreciate it well. I'm I I'm absolutely delighted that you've arrived at my door in costumes Jay Leno that's right. That's right. You're wearing your signature denim on denim. Yeah you know people say why this well. It's just because people we'll see you and that is a joke. They like one year is a joke. The writers gave me fifty two shirts one for every day of the week okay. Thanks you guys okay and then like every every sponsor. Oh we know you like Oh. We gave you a denim thing with our coca. Cola put emblem and I cut the emblem off and just wear the shirt so ultimately I I have at last count five hundred eighteen to these shirts and I think four hundred twelve pairs of jeans I'm not I'm not GonNa lie to you Jay. I've never met you in person. This is the first time I met you in person. You look very handsome in the shirt. I thank you thank you very much. Look very handsome. Compliments here is especially with the Silver Fox thing. You've got going on and that's really intentional. The Silver Hawks thing did you famous for driving around Los Angeles in unusual motor vehicles such shoe. Did you come here in a regular car or an unusual came here regular car because you don't bring anything unusual downtown. La Believe me you don't that's that's only for Burbank Yeah Yeah. It's really just yeah my cars. Leave going to big circle and then go back to the original location so I you know if they don't know where I'm going. I just take a regular car. I think a lot of people who are automotive enthusiasts are into like the most powerful fastest car or the car that projects the image image of the most power in fastness. Whether it's you know an Italian sports car or a you know an American muscle car. You're very well known for loving living cars from the brass era I like every kind of I liked noble failures. I like cars that were ahead of their time in their time. That didn't in quite make it you know yeah. I like anything unusual like you know my buddy of mine. He lives in. He lives in Holland. He has my favorite car car. It was it's called the Swan car. It was built for an Indian Maharajah and it has giant Swan head but this wanted is very the angry it shoots boiling water on pedestrians if they if they get out of it you present and it goes out of the mouth come to stream of scalding hot water view the people would literally so he would drive this thing with this big swan hand in the front and when people got close to the car he just press the button and and this boiling hot would come out in skull. The puppy ends of the street. They're horrible thing but it just it just made me laugh as great card AH perfect for. La Really you grew up to first and second generation immigrant parents write. Your father was Scott. Your mother Wisconsin town the funniest combination. It is a very unusual I mean. The Scots are known for their you know cold weather hardiness. Yeah you know the funny part was when I would go to my aunt Nettie House. That was my mother's sister. Would you scungy me like a school in it. She gave me the stale biscuit and then she'd say would you like Coca Cola Jimmy and she kept it in the cupboard and she'd say you know Jamie. It tastes tastes the same whether it's not seem refrigerated costs money it silly to put Coca Cola frigid and then she'd pour me this Kokin all the phys were becoming out of it as she port and I get the stale biscuit you know and I it was horrible. Then I go to the Italian side all my the Zonta in meatballs and it was funny because I was has always pulled in two directions you know as a little kid scotch people. They've got genie cheapie. Look at the Waist Jamie the Italian people only eight people here. There must be thirty five meatballs. That's that's crazy Jimmy to waste food like that. It's terrible thing you know and then the Italians have scotch people. They're all cheap Jane and whatever here five dollars you know and and both sides love me me equals. I guess but it was just funny to watch them. Each try to win me over with their own particular philosophy of of how life was and how you should live your life and it was just a just a funny experience. Just this is why this current situation with the immigrant thing just makes me so angry. Now living in America makes you inherently lazy and you always need that new blood to come in all the time when I used to go Jay walking. You know we'd not doors and ask people questions. I remember when to one the house and the grandfather who spoke only Spanish and he was dressed. Although he's of his house he had a sport coat on not expensive for anything but he he was dressed nicely and then his son who spoke Spanish and English came to the door to explain his father's and he was just kind of like I dress and then I met his teenage son who had like a F. U. T. Shirt on it some Kinda hat and he spoke no Spanish and he's had some video game but his hand wasn't paying attention and it just made me laugh to watch this degeneration as you become more American you get seduced by pizza and hamburgers and cars and rock and roll and it just to watch it sort of frivolous fairly fluid away you know and I it just it just I. I always remember that just made me laugh. You know you had an older brother who y went to Gail Law brothers in the service and so on and so forth and US ten years old if I remember right right it's going to be what are you gonNA. WanNa do with. Jr's remember my parents haven't that's. What are you going to do with James. I was like because I was not I was not I was not a good student in fact when I was in High School Guidance Counselor 'cause my mother and she says I'm sitting there. She Goes Mrs. Let let me ask. You haven't taken Jay out of school. No ought to teach you how to schooling in where he works at McDonalds. Doesn't you know they have that McDonnell university he could go to they would teach them how to make change. I'm going hey I'm in the room. Hey Hello and then he said something. That's to this day makes me laugh. He said you know Mrs. Leno education is not for everyone. Hey what are you doing so when I got the tonight show I actually voted Mr to kneel who was my guidance counselor at the time to come sit in the audience and I singled him out and I told that story just very funny doesn't sound funny to be it but it doesn't sound like a funny thing to have experienced. Oh it's please. It's alright. It's you know I was always pretty off off the cuff. I was no I'm. I'm pretty thick skin so it was. It just made me laugh. I'm sitting there. You Know Mrs Leno Education's not for everyone go hey. I'm in the room but I mean like re. Were you even thick-skinned like as a God knows I wasn't that I'm not that exciting now but I wasn't when when I was a teenager I mean I'm sure it affected me more than that. Well put it this way. It's it's funny in the telling. After you've been successful this I'm sure or if if if I was digging dishes and then guys scouser told me sounds told me to go dig ditches you know how did do.

"Back now on caught offside that some guest listed burnt Leno has he's gonna talk Ted Danson on his his talk show. Would you watch the burnt Leno show? Oh, absolutely. With the guest list of Ted Danson and Danny Welbeck's. Who wouldn't by the way, I'm glad you're embracing the joy of these of these musical beds. We've got this whole new world opened up to us now that was good. Enjoy that. Well, I think it's going to overshadow my Jackson Pollock peace everywhere. Let's see. I guess we'll use that as a reason to mention arsenal and their destruction of Fulham, five one. While we're talking about burnt Leno, this is kind of our first real look at him in for arsenal in a league fixture. I mean, what do you think. Any any review of him is this is better check, never gonna, get his job back. Can we tell such thing from one game? You can't tell anything from that one game? Yeah, all awards. Say was that you ask a great question about arsenal is the only question coming out of this game. I want you to ask, well, they've won nine straight across all competitions. They haven't had a winning run like that in eleven years more than a decade. So the question that has to be asked whether or not you believe it's real or if you believe it's fool's gold. I can't say it's food gold, but I don't believe it's really it on. I don't believe it's real from a number of angles. Arsenal were brilliant counterattacking. They took their goal superbly lack Zet like we've been calling out for when he's in that team. He is. He is electric right now, and I liked the way the team is set up the way it's linked together, but they are still giving up huge amount of chances. And if you want the x g some from that game, Mike, Kelly put up powered by op too. It's one point four to one point, six. The score was five one, but they still give up that amount shots that amount chances and you're thinking against the team with more confidence and inform you be extremely worried. Like how I know Andrea surely took his goal extremely well. But Andrew, it was a misplaced pass at the fullback position. And the next thing the hold of that defense. Opened up. That is not a good sign. Yeah. Arsenal had one of the prettiest team goals of the season in this game or GIS, and one of the best finishes of the season as well, the iron Ramsey goal and the build up to that goal was just for beginning to end it was great. So you know nine row is not. I know you said you're not ready to make any declared a statement, and I get that. That's probably like the level-headed way of approaching it. But I think you have to start. We've been so used to looking at them as like for lack of a better term. I don't mean to offend every arsenal fin out there, but they've kind of been a joke over the last couple years in not necessarily the way they played, but just like they became very arsenal. As we said, just like you, you knew where it was all headed the Vangere cloud that was over it. So I think that we kinda just got used to look at them as like this is steamed club, you know. And now all of a sudden here they are under this new manager and they're back to winning again, right? But they in even those kind. Of shall we say, barring years, even though they did have EFI cope wins. Even in those Byron years, they were capable of putting good runes together. And I'm obviously not as good as this as you've pointed out, but Andrew, Fulham at twenty wounds shots. Arsenal had nine Fulham only had foreign target. Arsenal had seven. You see what's happening here. You're right. A lot of the chances that arsenal took their chances and by the way the possession stats fifty, two percent for arsenal, forty percent for Fulham. I'm just not ready to go all in on the yet. I totally seen the scoreline does not tell the story of the game. Yeah, but it's more than that. They're still certain are Sinali deficiencies in that back four that I'm still Nolting that haven't been addressed..

"Back now on caught offside that some guest listed burnt Leno has he's gonna talk Ted Danson on his his talk show. Would you watch the burnt Leno show? Oh, absolutely. With the guest list of Ted Danson and Danny Welbeck's. Who wouldn't by the way, I'm glad you're embracing the joy of these of these musical beds. We've got this whole new world opened up to us now that was good. Enjoy that. Well, I think it's going to overshadow my Jackson Pollock peace everywhere. Let's see. I guess we'll use that as a reason to mention arsenal and their destruction of Fulham, five one. While we're talking about burnt Leno, this is kind of our first real look at him in for arsenal in a league fixture. I mean, what do you think. Any any review of him is this is better check, never gonna, get his job back. Can we tell such thing from one game? You can't tell anything from that one game? Yeah, all awards. Say was that you ask a great question about arsenal is the only question coming out of this game. I want you to ask, well, they've won nine straight across all competitions. They haven't had a winning run like that in eleven years more than a decade. So the question that has to be asked whether or not you believe it's real or if you believe it's fool's gold. I can't say it's food gold, but I don't believe it's really it on. I don't believe it's real from a number of angles. Arsenal were brilliant counterattacking. They took their goal superbly lack Zet like we've been calling out for when he's in that team. He is. He is electric right now, and I liked the way the team is set up the way it's linked together, but they are still giving up huge amount of chances. And if you want the x g some from that game, Mike, Kelly put up powered by op too. It's one point four to one point, six. The score was five one, but they still give up that amount shots that amount chances and you're thinking against the team with more confidence and inform you be extremely worried. Like how I know Andrea surely took his goal extremely well. But Andrew, it was a misplaced pass at the fullback position. And the next thing the hold of that defense. Opened up. That is not a good sign. Yeah. Arsenal had one of the prettiest team goals of the season in this game or GIS, and one of the best finishes of the season as well, the iron Ramsey goal and the build up to that goal was just for beginning to end it was great. So you know nine row is not. I know you said you're not ready to make any declared a statement, and I get that. That's probably like the level-headed way of approaching it. But I think you have to start. We've been so used to looking at them as like for lack of a better term. I don't mean to offend every arsenal fin out there, but they've kind of been a joke over the last couple years in not necessarily the way they played, but just like they became very arsenal. As we said, just like you, you knew where it was all headed the Vangere cloud that was over it. So I think that we kinda just got used to look at them as like this is steamed club, you know. And now all of a sudden here they are under this new manager and they're back to winning again, right? But they in even those kind.
