Leslie Welcome. Hi. I'm so excited to be here with you. Guys for those who don't know Leslie wasn't amazing. Tennis player career high numbers seventeen as well as doubles number ten and we're going to talk to her about her career, but also what? She's been up to since stopping link. That's a lot to get into. Let's begin with. How has your quarantine shutdown period band during the coronavirus pandemic? What have you been up to? Well. It's a good thing that I like myself. Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time. Obviously followed her career in since she was from New York and live not far from where I lived in New York. We were both in Washington Heights arena. Would you say you were Washington Heights to? I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up.

Trauma and colleagues looked into that question with the likelihood to be helped or harm ratio, which tells us which Med has the best ratio of COSC- and tolerability. It's based on the more familiar number needed to treat the number needed to harm. Here's what they found Larussa. Don La. Tuta rose to the top in nearly every category. The, categories were based on different side effects. When we're talking about ethics, we were talking about one thing treating depression, but side effects are many, so they measured the likelihood to be helped or harm in several categories of side effects, weight gain, extra parameters, symptoms, fatigue, academia, and nausea as well as dropout dude at any adverse effect, which might be the most important of the bunch. I should note here that the study was sponsored by Sylvian, the maker of Larizza Don, but I have reviewed the data in other less biased sources and agree with the general consensus. They're Larizza Don is one of the better tolerated and psychotics, and with the number needed to treat of five. It stands comfortably alongside OFC and Qu Taya Pain. Those two are high on C., but they're lower on tolerability. Zipping Fox teen combination was actually a close second to Loretta Don in most categories except weight gain.

Laura Zone as I said does not have any studies in mania, but it did work for mixed states and a new poster presentation, also sponsored by the industry brought some reassurance to those of us who worry that it may make mania worse like so many other anti-depressant therapies do. They re analyze Larizza domes main clinical trials again. None of these were done in mania, but they looked at manic symptoms and found that they did tend to improve with Larizza don and did not get worse.

The Fed has capped bank dividends and suspended buybacks after stress tests

"For the first time in the ten years of stress, testing banks are required to resubmit their capital plans later this year to reflect the current environment by chair Randall. Quarrels notes in a statement that there is quote material uncertainty about the trajectory for the economic recovery in its impact on banking organizations, and not all governors agreed to let the banks continue payouts even if If, they're limited fed governor Lael brainard said in a separate statement that she does not support giving the green light for large banks to deplete capital which raises the risk they will need to tighten credit or rebuilt capital during the recovery coverage, informing this decision by the Fed was a covert sensitivity overlay for their traditional stress tests where the test of the bank's viability under three hypothetical recessions in subsequent recoveries, v-shaped, u-shaped and w shaped. The Fed notes that there are scenarios are not predictions of the likely path of the economy in aggregate, though the Fed said loan losses for the thirty four banks tested amounted to five hundred and sixty billion to seven hundred billion dollars aggregate capital. Ratios declined from twelve. Twelve percent in the fourth quarter of two thousand nineteen to between nine point five to seven point seven percent in the hypothetical downside, they did not break out the results of the cove analysis on individual banks, but in the after hours investors have been drawing their own conclusions with mixed results depending on the bank mixed performance depending on the Bank Melissa all right Leslie, thank you Leslie picture with the results of the stress has a lot to think about. There are a lot to think about in terms of how it affects the bank trade, but there's also this to think about. Take a listen to what David Ellison of the Hennessy funds said on the closing bell just a few moments ago. There really inserting themselves, and and basically acting like they want to act in a sense that these companies are effectively nationalized. and. We're seeing the effect of that today. in what they're saying, so they're worried about the the appear to be more worried about the economy than the market is. Again heard Powell last week. Say that he was worried now. It seems like we're hearing that again. And this is going to be an ongoing thing. The banks are going to be battling this for the next couple years. So they are effectively nationalized according to this bank investor, guide me. What does this all mean for the bank trade? Yeah. It's interesting. I mean I. Don't know if I'd go that far that the bank should be but I I respected the the opinion on that. Know what it means for the bank trade I don't think the value proposition of the reason you were getting wanted to belong J. P. Morgan was because of the dividend or their stock. Buy Back. I mean I. Don't think that's why you're long the stock, but I understand the headline. This is somewhat shocking, although probably not all that. Surprising quite frankly, I think a lot of people probably saw this coming I think the bigger headline was the reason I thought. The market rally in the first place was a relaxation of the Volcker rule to a certain extent. I think that's why banks had the big run. Now you have to wonder if the timing was somewhat coincidental. I still would submit the following. Pretty steadfast on this you're looking for opportunities to by name like J. P. Morgan for that now second potential run up to one fifteen, and we've done the math for you. I mean one fifteen for J. P. Morgan is putting a one point eight multiple on sixty two dollars tangible book, and it makes a lot of sense. Go back and look where we traded up to a couple of weeks ago and that to me is where the market wants to go I. Don't think it's I. Don't think this is the reason to be bearish the broader market although you know I am. But I do think the headline is probably going to some people carrying. You've been a longtime investor in the bank specifically, certainly not for the dividends, certainly not for the share buybacks. Knew that they were gonNA suspend by back at least for this quarter. So how do you factor this into your investment thesis? So. I mean I guess it makes sense I that they say. Let's see how the year unfolds before we decide whether or not you're going to be allowed to to pay your dividend, or at what level you'll be allowed to pay your dividend, so that sort of makes sense to me i. think what is going to be more important I think is how bad are the provision for loan losses going to be in this quarter? And how bad are they going to be given that we are having difficulty reopening? How sustainable those losses to be going through the throughout the year, so I had thought that the first quarter and the second I'm sorry, the quarter ending in. June, and this next one I'm sorry. March marching, June would be the worst quarters of the year. Maybe there's another bad quarter here. It is interesting to me though that the Volcker rule did come out on the same day that I mean that's sort of like back to go go times. To? The stress tests. But I think the story hasn't really dramatically changed today we'll be. It'll be interesting when we see on Monday. Who is going to change their dividend? Would seem like Wells Fargo is maybe a likely candidate. For BANKAMERICA's city and JP Morgan. The big money centers I don't think they're moving much I. saw city up a little JP Morgan down a little and Bankamerica down. Little I don't think a whole lot has changed to me. It still comes down to how bad will the loss be? Yeah, Goldman after hours one of the biggest loser, if down two and a half percent, a wells Fargo's down one and. And a half percent.

Congress Announces Willingness To Give Black Lives Matters Protestors Statue Or Holiday

"Weeks of nationwide protests bird by the police killing of George Floyd. Congressional leaders are finally taking action lawmakers in Washington today officially announce their willingness to give black lives matter protesters, statue, or a holiday or something for more. I'm joined by OPR Congressional correspondent Charles Dearborn Charles. Can you give us a little more context sure Leslie? We've seen sustained protests in all fifty states demanding. Demanding Accountability from those in power, and now Congress has heeded their call. Here's main representative Edward Knicks on how this all came to be. People around this nation are calling for dramatic change. I can assure you that we intend to meet this moment with the support. It deserves a nice memorial. Say or perhaps a national day of remembrance that Individual States can decide to declare an. An official day off work if they want. Wow, that's pretty impressive stuff. It is indeed if passed, it would be some of the most sweeping federal legislation to address racial inequality in decades. Nice to see them finally putting their money where their mouth is. So what stages the legislation at right now there is a bill currently being drafted, so the details are still being hammered out. Out One of the biggest decisions, obviously will be whether to give them a statue or a holiday. Here's an ex with more I want to say to my constituents in the country. We have heard your message. Loud and clear enough is enough, and we intend to show this building a statue of a white hand, holding a black hand or some black children, looking inspirational or something. But then again a day I probably wouldn't cost us as much. Maybe that's the way to go. That's terrific, so do we expect this lot of pass? Well? Of course, it will have to go through a Republican controlled Senate and several members of already been pushing to dilute the bill by providing only a small metal plaque, or just rolling the whole thing to Martin Luther King Day will these all sound like great options to me, but should we expect this to appease the protesters? Based on talking to several senators, the black lives matter members are going to be very excited about this big step, and this is probably the last will hear from them while and do we have any comment from any of these activists. Sounds good. Thanks for the report, Charles. That's OPR's channels Dearborn back with more right after this.

Yes, but according to sources close to the pandas ying and Lee both feared for their souls, and the eternal damnation, they could be bringing. Bringing upon themselves if they acted on their carnal desires, they both believed that sex was meant only for the act of creating life under the holy bond of marriage.

Here's head conservationist Li Chen. Spent years showing them other pandas, mating pumping putative female fair moans into the males living quarters, and even tried central music at one point.

China Superchargers

"We're here. Today would just have a few quick things to go through pretty quiet day for Tesla overall as Elon. Musk has decided to leave twitter for a little bit. Not necessarily bringing news to a screeching halt, but definitely having an impact. We talked late last week about Tesla, potentially seeking out some land for a possible factory or something else in the UK. Well today there have been some rumors floating around on twitter. That musk may have flown to London today. Wednesday June third I'm sure I could probably fact check that but I'm personally not really big into the whole flight tracking concept so I'll leave it at that just passing. Passing along some of the rumors on twitter for what it's worth did originate from an account that has blocked me I'm not sure if it is someone using the blacklist or something else, but take that for what it's worth x today we have electric reporting on some pretty major superchargers expansion plans for China. They say quote at their Shanghai office last week. The automaker announced its plan to deploy four thousand superchargers in the country in twenty twenty, alone and quote, and while I'm not sure where they got this information electric says that there are about twenty five hundred superchargers stalls currently in China supercharge dot. Info is where I like. Like to get my tracking information for superchargers, and they have the whole of Asia Pacific right now at just over four hundred super charging stations, and of course, each station has multiple stats. The for a super charger location worldwide is about nine superchargers per station I think over time that number would grow so if we assume ten charges per station with the support of four hundred new chargers, we could be looking at four hundred new locations in China or something in that ballpark. The super charger location build out in China historically has been pretty linear so I. Think with gigafactory Shanghai now ramping up. We're going to see that change, too. Too much more of an exponential type of growth, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the super charger numbers in Asia Pacific Exceed Europe within the next twelve months of course, hopefully, gigafactory Berlin means see similar exponential type of infrastructure build out in Europe as well, but China market is larger. Even Volkswagen sells more vehicles in Asia Pacific than in Europe, so at some point, those are likely to flip next.

Them know that they were dropping them as customers, and they would no longer accept car loans coming in from those dealerships, a wells Fargo spokeswoman told CNBC that the bank had quote an obligation to review our business practices in light of the economic uncertainty presented by Covid, nineteen and have led the majority of our independent dealer. Customers know that we will suspend accepting applications from them and quote so the timeline, and how temporary the situation is a little bit unclear, but this may add in some cases a little bit more pressure to some of those dealerships now. How big of a deal is this really probably not? Not all that big. The Independent dealerships can likely find financing elsewhere, and as it relates to Tesla. This is about independent dealerships, so this is more of the used car environment versus new vehicles, and I think regardless of Tesla's disruption for new vehicle sales, and a little bit for US vehicles as well. I think dealerships for used vehicles are probably going to be around for quite a long time. Next is a quick update on space, X. if any of you have launched fever from the launch over this weekend, you'll have another opportunity to get your fix tonight if you're in the US on Wednesday June third. Third? At six twenty five PM Pacific Time Nine, twenty, five pm. Eastern time. This is another exciting mission for SPACEX. Because this is related to Starlink, this is the eighth launch of Starling satellites for operation so operational satellites four, hundred, twenty, one through four, hundred and eighty. June should be a big month for Starlink launches with three expected launches scheduled for the month about the crew dragon mission. There was a pretty interesting quote that was shared on the TMC forums by Astronaut Doug. Hurley was quote the thing that really stood out to both of us, and we mentioned it as soon as we talked is that? That, we didn't even feel the docking. It was just so smooth, and then we were docked and the shuttle. You felt a bit of a jolt. That really really surprised me and quote so obviously. The autonomous technology that spacex is using for docking at the International Space Station has a lot different than the autonomous technology that Tesla is using on earth, but nevertheless uninteresting and nice quote to read Leslie today I just want to give a few thoughts off the top of my head on the Nikola interview yesterday. Obviously some mixed reactions from that interview, but I appreciate those of you. That came to it with. With an open mind that interviews, not my time. That's Trevor's time to give us his take on the company. Then we can take that information and we can assess it for ourselves for me. It's about getting good information out. There were lucky. I think to have platforms to speak directly with CEO's of these companies and assess based on the things that they say rather than having everything be shrouded in mystery. So that's the whole goal I really appreciate Trevor taking the time to do that and answering my questions, it's not exactly the easiest environment to come into you, and it's not every see yo that is. Is Willing to do that so I really appreciate that in terms of Nikola as a business. I wish them all the best. My personal preference is Tesla an investment. I'm a really big fan of the vertical integration. That Tesla has I think that allows tesla to learn a lot and it rate very rapidly as you said in the past pace of innovation is the most important thing I believe that vertical integration helps with. That doesn't mean another model can't work. Nikola does the advantage of not having that legacy business waiting them down. That could allow them some room to operate so I. Think they'll be interesting. Interesting to follow, but personally not the investment for me, and that's okay again. This is all about open-mindedness, due diligence and sharing

"I laughed out loud and then I realized it had been a long time since I laughed out loud. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing your part during this these scary weeks catherine that is very very kind and during nice and I you know I have. We keep talking about this but I I keep having these real profound moments of gratitude and I just had a wave of one because I put myself in your shoes Very momentarily and I'm so sorry you're going through that and it just makes me feel so lucky and grateful to people like you got. I can't imagine crazy and grateful to this dumb thing that we're doing is any comfort. It's scary these old folks homes. I know they're the one closest to where we grew up. Not far from where we are. Now is is Experiencing a pretty big outbreak. There and a few people have died in a bunch. Others are sick and my grandmother lives there. So it's all very scary and It's it's really brave. Noble of you to be doing what you're doing to help them. Yeah so thank you Catherine and everyone like Catherine and even people who are just staying home. I mean I I. I know. It doesn't seem like much but I think for the greater good is going to have. It's going to help people like Catherine get through this a lot more quickly. And if you guys would like to write in we love hearing from you and we can be reached at life is short at one dot com. So please write in and thank you to our wonderful. Just Larry Lommel Lovable Chamu for purse gem of person. Yeah one of just one of the best. And I like his positivity and optimism about this pandemic being over he. He mentioned that when over he thinks that people are gonna come together with more kindness and he thinks the world is a better place and I I know. Sometimes it's it's hard to see that right now but I really appreciated that optimism. Sometimes it's nice to hear that because it's like I said it's very easy to lose sight of it. Yeah that it's the effect that it's had Is that of a resetting? Almost not just on people talked about the environmental effects that had but just on our own sociological environment. You know I noticed and I hope this last. I hope we carry this on past the During the Post Cova time. But I've noticed that people been saying acknowledging one another more. I found myself doing it. You know talking to strangers and from a distance will not to be Debbie Downer but the flip side of that and I think the danger of that is because we're being conditioned now to isolate with our tribes when whoever those people may be my fear is that it's going to create this sense of tribalism where everyone else is like the other and is unclean. And there's there's a real strong metaphor thanks but but let's let's go to another. That's the one I prefer. Oh man so thanks to Leslie and and just thank him too for for spreading joy during this time instagram's been to a fault. Sometimes I'm on it too often but it's it's been a source of joint comfort and Leslie. It's been a big part of that. So thank you to Leslie into Katherine and everyone writing in and everyone listening. Yeah Yeah we appreciate your. We wouldn't be doing this. Appreciate your ears and it's right Life is sh. That's it right. We'll see you soon and we'll check in a couple of days with another quarantine episode Thanks for listening. Could be a dream life. Good.

"Be the best part Leslie by Pie. Thank you so has happened. That did happen and I am just tickled to Pacers did has a you know I must say. I admire your restraint during that interview. Thank you I. There are a few times where I had a little out of body experience and I realized I wasn't. I was tempted. I of course had the temptation to do it. Do his voice for those of you. Don't tell my my penchant for imitating people to their face which would sounds mean. But it's actually a I think it's order you have. It's motivated motivated more by affection When I'm watching a movie or if it's someone with an accent I have to repeat what they're saying that voice so I did not do with Leszek but it's part of to know you did it a little bit just not that much not nearly as much as I thought okay. Well it's it's difficult for me and especially with somebody like that because he I love. He's he's he doesn't have just one of those ever people use this expression a little too much. Do I think at myself included but I really listen to him reading the phone book and enjoy it. Yeah it's hard to imagine a more pleasing fun voice. Lau Albert Abraham Ston fourteen technology to Cherry Hill terrace which would which partially partially explains his rise to fame on instagram. Absolutely but it's not only partially out content. Oh yes very funny too but I wonder about Leslie. Antibiotics Kent whom we mentioned earlier. How just had the level of awareness they have for how unique they are and and where their charm How where they're charm resides right? I don't know I don't know there seems to be an innocence about him. Yes there's a there's a when you go about both of them but about Leslie Because when you talk to him about monetize ing yeah. This new found fame as and I believed him when when he implied that he didn't set out abso. You know get rich off his fame absolutely it. The whole thing struck him as an. I also believe that a huge surprise and like a welcome one. I think he's having fun with it And I I love that. He was honest about. And that's part of what makes them so. Entertaining is his honesty. He's just each tells these great stories but he doesn't have much of a filter and I think people have been really responding to that. Well that's also the sober thing I've noticed on the show. A lot of we've had a bunch of gas now who are sober and who have gone through a process to get sober. And there's a there's a commonality among all of them have notice you know. There's there's a kind of thoughtful wisdom and honesty and openness about them and that's a huge because they've done a lot of work on themselves right and I can tell that he's done a lot of work on himself and that he's struggled and so much of that. Work involves opening up and sharing with others oftentimes with strangers which is exactly what he's doing on Instagram. And his struggle specifically is so complex. I think being a flamboyant guest kid from a very conservative area southern Baptist Southern Baptist Claims he he. He talked about having a very macho father. But the father sounded you know. It's hard to tell but Santa somewhat supportive were bought a doll news a kid but but the only matters is leslie was scared of what you know. He would think of him from his perspective. His father wasn't necessarily accepting was so again. Like how complicated life tag? But looking at it. Through the prism of history. You know that's like you said. Relatively the father was probably far more accepting an open but who knows my mom she. I remember her buying the cabbage patch. Kids and I remember you guys. Kind of teasing me about yeah. I'm sorry about that. We should done that. That was we were kids in the eighties. And there were very specific. Gender norms that that we grew up with but Our mother encouraged. I think in part because she wanted daughter Yeah And then in retrospect I feel like I'm ashamed of my behavior as a kid because who now of course we live in such a different time and much more open time. Like who cares if you know boys well. You shouldn't dwell on many other things that I I'm ashamed up But yeah you're really into that that you were into Anne and Superman three. We've talked about that on the show. Those really the two movies that you watched obsessively that is a fact I did not know that Short Leslie Jordan four eleven. And we're supposed funny he goes. I'm for eleven and you go now out. He's had a gray line he said yeah. I'm like a beach ball are yeah he has lines. So he's he's so funny he's still should something. I mean he does. That's what he does you mentioned guerrillas. Pickles again yeah. Now you're mentioning. Well I'm hoping to get more pickle. I'm not an activist. Said his hand on his own pickle. I okay realize I would love Leslie. Speaking monetize Lesley's monetize adventure. He'd be tell me any many things. Right now yeah. He could become a billionaire advertising things he could sell. He could sell sand to a nomad in a desert. Usa Sports you ask them with sports play and he said wrestling one on one wrassling wrassling. There's something cheeky about gay men of that age. You go with me on this. There must well. I really hope this isn't offensive. But there must be a sense of real liberation when it comes to being open about their sexuality and being able to express their sexuality Although with Leslie doesn't sound the key state in the closet for that long but I do know men of that age are either one way or the other leaning to sexual innuendos or whatever or they or avoid it because how they they were for so many years yeah. We probably also should've mentioned earlier. That what is what people maybe most know him from is will and grace. That's true I know. Yeah but I had seen him in so many other things he there was another actor couple actors when it comes to mind. Tim Camp for cancer as last name. He's Polish using Police Academy Very short short care. They would stand out because they were short and And they had unique voices and And he was always that guy would always notice him. Danny Devito Danny Devito Yeah he won an Emmy. I want to get this one Emmy Award for that performance in will and grace. Oh Wow probably should've mentioned I should if I did not know that. That's wow Isn't credible actor too. He's very believable. Runny actor anyway. He's just been making me so happy the last couple of weeks. So his his dinner Dolly Parton Parton that Midler Carol Burnett and him badly want to go to that I don't WanNa go to it and that would be really nervous and I in over my head. I couldn't I I would feel like because I'm the fifth person at this dinner party. I would feel the need to conserve and I. I know I really couldn't so the whole I would try to be thinking of something too high because I would want to eavesdrop on it. It would be. You're right you're right just so socially it'd be intimidating because imaginary the pearls that'd be coming out of all their mouths and I find it odd that he hasn't met tally. Pardon if Dolly Dolly PARTON IS AWARE OF HIM LIKES HIM. He's made he's gone to such lengths to try to meet her. That is weird and especially now with social media. You'd think the two of them would've hooked up on on instagram or something. I know he was also very excited when you told them that. Drew was following him on instinct. Oh my God he was like what is. Yeah well drew. We should mention is Ken. That's how we know maybe why saying that But yeah she said. Drew has a has a real fondness for people like Leslie and and She Yeah Maybe. My favorite part of the whole interview was doesn't was when you asked him. Which golden girl he identifies with you. List them yes. I just goes plant. Yes yeah there's a joke that we he's been asked that question every day for the last thirty years. Yeah there yeah. He was so ready and of course friends with our new room Ruined our friends. Of course I mean. Let's read a letter okay. Great this is from. Catherine subject is so important dear Justin Christian every night during this crisis I fall into bed and hope to find one of your quarantine updates. It's nice if there's if there isn't a new one I just re listened to the Max Greenfield episode. We've been talking about Max. He's the best by the way speaking of funny instagram videos. Stuff lillies dodge so good I'm sure you're aware if not check it out on instruments here. Sorry back the letter. Here's my situation. During this crisis I work for a nonprofit that operates five buildings of affordable housing for low income seniors as such we are in essential service. And don't have the option to self isolate.

"So nice of you to do this. I'm so excited to talk to You. Max. Greenfield is a mutual friend of ours. He's the one that pointed. He said you gotTa Follow Leslie. How do you how do you know Max first of all you guys work together way? Ed The same episode of will and Grace He was co starring as Debra Messing boss. And I was doing my little recurring thing as Beverley less on right. Aaron Walker's best friend anyway. We started talking and it's the craziest thing because we just really hit it off and then he invited me over for dinner one night and I didn't know who I was and his wife is brain fail. Who's had a casting for Fox? As I left his house they were cutting a deal for made for the cool kids series. I was GONNA do for lots and my agent said don't disappear. You know how we have to go back and forth. Where are you going to be going over to Max Greenfield? I'll speak does his was who were negotiating with fog. Dora were there. There was Charlie his last night. I don't know he's real big over at Fox in jazz and they said welcome to the Fox family on. That's how I knew I got project. And was that from your reoccurring role on will and grace to that have anything to do with you. Now they were casting this heart the characters nine and he was a seventy three year old straight Jewish man from Brooklyn Perfect Nevada. That's made Max said at three o'clock in the morning now. He tends to exaggerate. Light me up. Stories said at three o'clock in the morning he was looking at that script with his wife's in each unit who you should read for this. His name is less Jordan tested wail and so they called Charlie who was producing it who produced L. On my mind go. And you know Charlie Front Out Charlie Charlie from all the boys that rejoice in Philadelphia Charlie Charlie Day. So Max how Charlie. Day At three o'clock in the morning Charleston and Mass Jess He's the right one. And then Charlie tell me later on when I walked in I saw series because the cool kids must gun originally beat three guys older guys who grew up in Brooklyn. And they're they're now the cool kids and I rest Ghetto other housekeeping Alan grier and Martin Mall and Vicky Leslie. That's interesting have you. It was such a different type. Had you done a role like that? I mean when you first heard that it was a New York Jewish tough guy. I said look. I'M GONNA put a different spin on this. I didn't try it off. Okay okay try it all many years. Weather's a wonderful director named Sam. Weisman he went onto graduate mighty ducks and he cast in this part. Is Ralph Short the shortest member? Fdic the issue of the. He's set because now. Listen you carry a certain kind of baggage. It's not Gonna. You could articulate what that exactly means what he meant by that. How would you say to Bush? It up your your. He said that's not gonNA work with this character so I bush up which was hilarious. I can't remember but show that was silent and I said did I pull it off in days for my friends in Kansas. They said No. She walked on the screen. My friends at Gen. Even now you said get a Lotta her. Well you know. I have a friend named Ken. To is very. I mean he makes you seem like John Wayne. He's very flammable and whenever he would try to push it up it we come off. He he would do this. Kinda slow solothurn. Thank the strangest thing I had eight years ago. People our hope is that like an eighty two actor. Well you know what it was very wink. Wink come on. We go out to the gay bars at night. You see every cast director and Tan. You secret juicers. But then during the Dina Agents Collins they listen feet on the ground voice in the lower register. Keep your hands at your saw. Maybe sit on your hands. Didn't work again. Work never worked. Well I want to hear what that what would that sound like Leslie because Your Voice is so unique and identifiable short comes off locker room rid of try to do is just. It's just so science but that's what you would try to do per your agents request because in one thousand nine hundred to imagine there weren't there certainly weren't gave roles in mainstream things. I talked about this with Morocco. The other day they had there were characters of the Nance there nance characters there were Zanies. They call them. But we're those. How would they describe the role that you would be going up for back then? We got many a lot. We got Mama's boy. Yeah like a Momma's boy. He's a huddle slide. He he's a little this and that and I would describe as a gay or vodka is now come on but it was very wake Wang interesting. And and that's when you came to La Right Leslie in nineteen eighty two. You move from Chattanooga I listen. I got a degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga from the Drama Department where they sat me down and they said Oh minister Jordan plays before you go to Hollywood learn how to pronounce your degree because I was still saying they.

And Vine it was that a day-long pray and now it's the bus station now. It's McDonald's it was the bus station. It wasn't even it was like Trailblazer Senate. I literally got off. That bus was I've never heard of pronounce. So beautifully daylong pray long we say delong pre OP Leslie. How did she the twelve hundred dollars into your underwear? I'm guessing it wasn't coordinating. I'm making that so an cheap hand it right there so that I would have it. You'll be able to understand eighty two. You needed cash. You have to have passed. We've got T. M. machines really. You don't understand Friday. You went to the bank and you whisper your cash for the weekend sometimes. Write a check to the grocery store.

You seem like you're very good at entertaining yourself and in turn it's entertaining the country that come naturally chewed you. Are you always kind of making up? Little things in your head have always been like dance. Yeah let's in baton twirling. I didn't know about Inter instagram till here.

Yeah what is it you know what happened around the time I started it was Max told me to look you up into to follow you and so I did and I think you had a you had like eight or nine hundred thousand followers and and as soon as I started watching your videos I understood why there was something so obviously so funny but the stories you tell are so compelling and there's something comforting about about it but then a week later I looked and got it was up to three million ever happened like in a week. Three point five right. Yeah so literally how? How does that feel? Does it feel like do feel like pressure now like these things have to be a certain quality at all we've been approached like I learned a new word. How would not know the word monetize monetize?

"About ten years ago my girlfriend at the time had incredible collection of friends. I loved her but I really also loved her friends and one of them was a man by the name of Kent. Kent was a boyish almost. Shahrukh looking man who was very stylish. He was kind of like a Tennessee. Williams heroin and mixed with the Cheshire cat. Yes yes good edition and he talked like this. And I'm not exaggerating and one point. I'd done several movies in a row and I was in need. I was in need of well. The point is that I brag I just had to go to like premieres and stuff and I. It's important to mention that. He was a stylist. Yes we haven't mentioned that you have. I not no friend of the day. All right I left out the key. Sorry yes and I was a need at the time of stylist But I know nothing about fashion. So who better to ask them? Can't he picked up some clothes for me and included in them with this like thing this accessory that I couldn't figure out I said what can he said? O? J. L. it's an has caught and I sit in ask. That is that in fashion. Is that like any said now had yet but it's coming back and so he convinced that that was all it took. I just trusted him implicitly and I wore it and it never came back the Ascott. Ken was wrong. And now there's an era photos of your car so many and there's one of me too. That's right next to me. Maybe trickled off marrying and ask one zone darasing anyway. Thanks can yeah off. He was the best. Here's the best could be a dream. Life could be injury. You're listening to life is short. I'm your host Justin log sweetheart dude And with me as always is currently my Ascott lists brother who has his hands in his pants on my hip. I know how your hands are cold. A little chilly in here. Thanks for sharing though. It's not to say that I'm looking at putting your hands down your pants when you say down your pants they are is heading to the area there on the very misleading on your hips. Yet in your pets just keeping warm against the body sorry It is a kind of rainy cold day. Here it's a hand on the pants kind of day. It's speaking of hand in the pans our guest today. Well we're talking about this. Just lovely you know. People say that word. Use that word Unicorn to describe somebody. Who's very unique? Oh I thought you were going to say lovely. It's lovely to carry. You used that word. Describe someone why I've heard other people. I've seen other lovely he. He's not wrong. He's like a human. He's a Unicorn and he's got such a I remember over. It's already interrupt people over to use the term. You know these days totally. I think it's appropriate. That would apply but I remember once. My girlfriend caught him. I think we've actually talked about this. She caught him In her she had this big closet. This walking closet and she would catch him trying on her gowns and soon dresses and stuff. Oh my God you got me. You caught me. He had so many funny like catchphrases and my favorite one was he would say I'm just saying and he would then go on to say the most like wise it funny Just unique thing you know such a way Why are we talking about well and well another similar type of person similarly lovely and odd funny and unique quirky with all? These words can apply. Is Our guest today. He's an actor but he's so much more than that his name's Leslie Jordan. Leslie is somebody whom I think. We both have been aware of for a long time as an actor. I would say nearly mine. Entire Life. Yes. He's quitters. Yes will starting in the eighties. He he's been on. Tv shows he POPs up on TV shows all the time it. It's you'd be hard pressed to watch to TV viewer and not know who he is. Yes I it's when you see him because he has a very unique look. He's very short as we'll talk about I think he said he's four foot eleven and he just has such a wonderful gentle voice. The southern a very thick southern accent. He's from Tennessee. So he's just one of my favorite performers and now he's one of my favorite people. I've gotten to know my little bit Doing this interview and I was. I was so grateful for that my friend also from the show Max Greenfield Texan me a couple of weeks ago. Now and he said you gotTa Follow Leslie Jordan on Instagram. And I immediately did because I trust Max and a sense of humor and I've been I'm so grateful that I did It brought me so much joy during this quarantine. There's a great Malcolm Gladwin book called the Tipping Point. Basically it's about trends and and it talks about why things become popular sort of exploded into popularity right where it goes from like. It's sort of obscurity to and then there's a a tipping point and there's a waterfall of popularity or CSS and somewhere. Yeah and this Hera Deluge as Allen. Overusing yes lately but this tipping point. I think it's it's accurate to say he happen to our to Leslie Jordan in the last few weeks. It's a perfect example of that. The you went from having a modest following I'd say on Instagram. Few hundred thousand people to just in the last few weeks yeah. Now he has. Millions of INSTAGRAM followers becomes such a trend and to put it in perspective. I I've been doing it for almost a year now and I started with a couple of hundred whatever and I'm up to three hundred thousand which is really exciting. This is not a humble brag. I'm just perspective. Leslie also started a year ago. He started with the same amount one hundred and now keep in mind. I did instagram for the show. And so every week as you know if you follow me up a post somebody that Guests to the show and sometimes they'll reposted in that gives you more followers and stuff but leslie just kind of films himself. It's all just him just talks into the camera and within a year he's up to like three and a half million followers but I would say more specifically it's the last couple of weeks it is. It's a quarantine thing I would say. The quarantine has produced two massive things. Did you see that? No you spill all over. Oh God sorry sorry. That was a good point here again. I would say the corn has produced two two huge things. One the tiger king which we've done about and to Leslie Jordan instagram. The army he's A. He's a phenomenon on instagram. It during the quarantine. He's an instant fina. I almost said they're very different but there are in the diagram of those two. There are a few similarities There are and I'm not just talking about the fact that they're both gay they they are both. There's a certain eccentricity of a southern eccentricity I would say that they both not to alienate our southern listeners. Alienates embrace they're both fascinating characters. I would say obviously that. Leslie is on the other end of the SP- benevolent spectrum. He is such a gentle sweet soul. It if you don't know who he is there who were talking about it. You should probably pause this now and go to his instagram just for some context because it's hard to explain why he so entertaining. You're right so I think we should let the interview speak for itself. Yes we'll give you time now deposit. Yes and also just a little heads up. This interview is done remotely. Because obviously we're on courting and Leslie is in Tennessee Chattanooga Chattanooga. He's near Mom. He's near his mom and we're in Connecticut so near arm. Yeah and we had some technical issues with the connection. Amer a few letters militia. They're like As he's talking a little like that so if you were trying to figure the glitches out for the next interview we do But please bear with us so that is will hopefully will iron this problem out moving forward. Yes but until then. Here is a slightly glitch. She but very entertaining very funny and fascinating Leslie Jordan Sweetheart Too It is no secret on the show that we have tried and love but like shelter but like Seltzer has four delicious flavors which we don't exactly know how to rank but I would probably put mango first strawberries. Really good. They're all good lime lemon lime And it's five percent alcohol. Only one hundred calories. We don't know how they do that. It is the best. I've tried those other ones. Don't WanNA mention them but they have this like sweet. Fake fake said weakness. Yes so now. There is something called by lemonade. And if that's even half as enjoyable as Bud Light Seltzer. I'm going to be in for a real treat. It's a premium light lager. It's made with real lemonade. And it has a refreshingly crisp taste sound so good right. I know it's Nice. Stapled Light Seltzer people. We would love to try the BUD LIGHT LEMONADE. And you are wink wink..

"People. You are fans of this man. You have demanded that we figure this out. If you knew how hard Leslie Odom Junior has tried to get here to do this and talk to you all and share this great news about his brand new record. You wouldn't believe it. The man has worked harder than anybody supplies. Let's give a warm Bob and Sheri. Welcome to Leslie Junior. Oh my gosh. Let's before there's an earthquake or an asteroid. Let's jump right in and talk about your brand new record all original songs written by you. It's called Mr started telling people that I was going to record Malala original tunes before I'd written a single Saul just because it sounded good just because it sounded like you know the next crazy thing I could say if I'm being honest with you. My wildest dreams came through a while ago. And so all of this has greatly you know the. I really didn't see any of this kind of stuff for myself. I was that theater guy came from the theater. And that's really all I wanted to do it so as the success since stuff has happened in that space. It's opened all these other doors that I'd be a fool not to walk through but it really is just about kind of just dreaming the new dream for myself every couple years. You know as I as things keep happening and I wish we for every single person under the sound of my voice. You know that there comes a moment in your life even if it happens once in your life if you can stare you know stared at a dream in the face like wow. This is it to materialize as the thing that happened. That only sounded sounded wild and crazy at some point. You know the treatment of drink. It's interesting to hear you describe it that way because I sometimes think that on even are even in our wildest dreams we can hold ourselves back you know. Were afraid to speak to the universe. What's really in our heart but then success You take some chances and you'd take some risks and yours brave as you can be and you have some success in some artistic validation and opportunities happen. They're not just opportunities in terms of jobs. Or or gigs or paychecks. Its opportunities to go that much deeper. And be that much braver. What do you think? I think you're exactly right. You know This whole you know the this this whole the pandemic is like a reminder of how why do this to begin with you know. Would you do it? Even if it wasn't attached to weekly paycheck and you know or I mean civil weekly. When I first the first ten years of my career I would have killed for weekly paycheck. Boy like more like a BI monthly paychecks. So let's talk about this big brave new leap the record of all original songs. Mr which when I read that. You recorded at skywalker ranch. I kinda had to rub my eyes because it seemed it seemed like an unlikely spot but tell me how that came to be Skywalker RANCH FOR PEOPLE. That may not that are going. Where have I heard that that's George Lucas? That's like Star Wars right right. I did My first very first film Did when I was like twenty five years old twenty six years old and I didn't do another film for ten years but that very first film I had at a small part in George is produced movie and he invited us up to the ranch. And we did like cast bonding weekend. The film about the Tuskegee airman and so we met some of the airman and got to ask questions and stuff like that and so George became a you know I Dare I say friend. You know what I mean somebody that I would. I would see around every now and again that he would always you know Care about how was doing and what I was up to. And so I never forgot my time up there and I always thought it would be amazing to do. A writer's retreat up skywalker. It's they've got everything they've got lodging. They've got pianos got a recording studio so when we were putting this album together I never had forgotten that in. I said well you know all they can say no. You know I mean I'm GonNa. I'm sure we were not going to get to skywalker ranch. But I'M GONNA I'm GonNa ask you know because maybe who else let us have it? Well you are. You're Tony Winner. Which has to be. I mean I bet there are still days. You're in the shower and you go hot. Damn I wanted to take. Probably you know that. That's any grammy for the cast album for Hamilton. And now you've got you've got this huge new credible original record that if we can ever let you out of the House you're going to be able to go out and perform for people I gave when we because we told our audience. We're like we're trying to have leslie ODEM junior on but we're having all these technical problems and we're driving the man crazy trying to get him connected so I started getting e mail from fans of yours And and one of them said you have to ask him what he sings to his little girl at night when he puts her to bed does he say dear theodose does he saying here. Comes Bunny Foo Foo? What does he sing? So funny I don't really saying to to my kid at night. We read but is she'd rather my wife saying that's violent because I went to Nicolette My wife is performed to. She's she's been on Broadway and see Ya. She'll sing Lucy's they sing. Nikola so-called waitress on Broadway. She started she started and yeah and her. Lucy will saying we'll sing those songs together. I am at home. I'd much rather hear Lucy or I'd much rather hear Nicolette Sing than me. Nobody's nobody's clamoring to hear me. Say because I don't care who you are. Whatever your thing is that you're good at your kids are like yeah. I don't think so dad I would be fine with me. Well we are just so glad that we were finally able to figure out a way to talk to you The next thing was going to be a CB radio down at the truck. Stop 'cause ideas. I can't wait for this all to be over so that you can get on the road and we can all come here. You do these incredible songs from Mr Live.

"Not just any whale song though. The sound pattern is similar to the call of a blue whale but at a much higher frequency the mystery behind did that sound has gripped the imagination of people right around the world. Leslie Jamison tells that story of obsession and others like it in her latest collection of essays. Make it scream make it burn. Leslie is the author of the New York Times bestsellers recovering and the empathy exams. Leslie Good Morning Can Morning Matt. Let me start to be here. It's great to have you let me start with that sound. It's the sound of fifty two blue. What is the story of this whale? The story of fifty blue which is still ongoing actually is the story of the whale who ultimately became known as the loneliest whale in the world as you said his his his song was first discovered by these naval audio engineers. Once a set of Navy hydrophones had been kind of decommissioned from tracking Soviet subs at the after the end of the Cold War and they heard the song that was unlike. Any whale song. They'd ever heard and wants. Their results became public. People became obsessed with this this elusive Wale and his song for a couple of reasons that his song was different from any other whales and that he was always tracked traveling alone. I was interested in telling not only the story of the whale himself. And how he had been discovered but really the stories of people who had become obsessed with him and why they had become obsessed with him and and what sorts of meanings they projected onto him. Told me more about that. Because to your point people people became obsessed with this. Well Yeah I think and and I'm very interested in in getting at the insides of people in the mysterious insides of people through these things that they get consume buying. Can't let go of so you know I tell the story. Three of a Polish tabloid photographer who got down by his girlfriend and became very attached to the whale as a sort of mascot of heartbreak and ended up getting a massive massive tattoo of the whale. That I can show you many many photographs of if you're interested across his back I tell the story of a an Irish union organizer Sir. who sort of restarted his life and Middle Age and for him the whale was a mascot of endurance? I really got quite close to one woman men who was recovering from a coma up in Harlem and for her the whale was simultaneously symbol of loneliness and a symbol of what it might mean into be resolutely adamantly independent. Why did people project so much onto the whale? There's a line that somebody says that the whale is everything. What was it about this whale? That allowed them not just to get the Tattoo and to write songs about it and to create art inspired by the whale but to project all of that onto this thing I think there were a few elements at play. I think for starters. The whale was simultaneously vivid and distance. So it's it's an immediate media image of this whale all alone in the vast ocean you can picture you can kinda get attached to that image but the will was far enough away that we didn't really know do that much about him and that not knowing made it easier to project sort of everything onto him. I also think there's something about Wales Moby. Dick is obviously the original white canvas. Bewail who comes to stand for lots of different things to lots of different people in the Melville novel but I I think whales are simultaneously genially so huge and powerful and that with this particular whale there was a sense of vulnerability living alongside that huge massive power because has he was always alone because he was a little bit different and I think those veins of vulnerability made him a a a more appealing source of obsession. What were are you more interested in the whale or that sense of Obsession I? My ultimate interest was within the obsession of which became a participant in as well as the documents are of. I there anybody who knows me during the eighteen months span probably two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen. When I was working on that long piece nose and was subjected to listening to like a particular song that had been inspired by the whale? Everybody in my life was hearing a lot about the whale. I myself was coming out of a long term relationship and so I think that idea of solitude and what could be done with solitude became Quite moving to me as well and so when I was writing about these people who are obsessed. I wasn't writing about them. As kind of clinical anthropologist. I was writing about them as as kindred spirits in a way. How'd you land on this? I mean you have written a lot about obsession and things that people become obsessed with whether it's running incredibly long distances whether it's it's the whale whether it's a mysterious skin condition or the idea of reincarnation how'd you end up landing on what you become obsessed with so there are lots of pads to my subjects. Sometimes their personal so in the case of the ultra marathon the brutal race through the Tennessee Z.. Wilderness that you mentioned i. It first came onto my radar screen because my brother was running it and he is now run it run it and not finished it many times which is kind of in some ways points race did not finish other pieces come to me. Through editors and editors approach me with a lot of ideas that I don't take so I think it it always always comes down to the question of whether I feel both a deeper level of connection to the story and usually that deeper level of connection comes from feeling like I can tell both the surface story of the whale of families who believe their kids were reincarnated spirits from the past. There's there's that story that I can report out on the tangible level but for me to really take the story on there has to be some set of deeper questions that I feel like that surface. This material is granting the access to and that's ultimately my entry point into the story. How do you define that? I mean the the idea of obsession because it's not just a fascination. It's not a preoccupation. It's something that's deeper and it's not just about time either. It's it's something that goes beyond that. What's what's the definition that you apply to that I think for me part of part of what I come back to you in thinking about? What makes something an obsession? Is that it. It feels as much a part of of a person as the external realities of their lives so their family life their job life their daily commute their their home where they live. You know that that this obsession if you were to ask that person like who are you. What makes you who you are? What makes you tick that? This obsession would be just as much a part of that answer. Maybe even a bigger part of that answer then. Those External realities of their daily pragmatic life. Life it's almost like if if every person is sort of the is the version of like the surface of the earth or kind of geologic crust than the obsession is this Fisher that opens in the earth in. It feels like that Fisher can deliver me to something deeper and more multi and stranger inside of them. You could dismiss some of the things that people people are obsessed with. There's a piece in the collection about couple who believes that their son was Second World War pilot and his past life and it could be easy to say. Well that's odd and kind of put it off to one side. You don't do that. The why the reincarnation piece was a good example of the fact act that there was a reality happening there no matter what. So maybe there was the reincarnation of a World War Two fighter pilot in in which case that was a reality that was happening but even even if you were to somehow which would be impossible I think totally disprove the possibility that he was reincarnated fighter. Pilot there's still a reality of what's happening there. which is that a family has constructed an entire sense of identity around around the soul of their son being the sole of this pilot? And that's become a big part of their sense of who he is as a person it's become a big sense of who for him who he is says the person and it's become a big part of their family narrative so for me it's impossible to dismiss because whatever the truth of the reincarnation piece there is a truth truth happening there of the store. Is that this family has been telling themselves and kind of constructing their their lives around as a journalist. Or you comfortable with that. I mean you talk about with this in in The pieces as well the line that you may or may not be crossing. It's not as though you believe their story. But you don't completely dismiss it as well and you almost believe you you you find yourself almost aligning with with what they're saying right. Yeah so I think my I think. My understanding of my role was the journalist in relation to their story was that I had to pursue that angle. Of how does the story of reincarnation align with the facts that we can see your. The scientific frameworks we do have but at the same time it also felt like to me and even more compelling part of my role as a journalist was to really investigate what the story had come. I'm too mean for the family and to be as honest as I could on the page about my own. Subjective investments in the story. Why I felt defensive? Incisive of this belief in reincarnation why I wanted to sort of make a case for a belief in reincarnation as suggesting something beautiful about a human understanding of the soul even if we couldn't back it up with physics for example. When I'm writing about reincarnation I'm also early on and twelve step recovery and actually a a lot of the ideas that were appealing to me about twelve step recovery? Were also appealing to me in the vision of Self Hood that reincarnation suggested and so I put that I put put that kind of bias on the table. Because I think I'm telling a story of my encounter with a phenomenon and that's a part of that story. It's also but encounters with with people told me a little bit of votes the photographer that you meet in one of these pieces any appeal. Yeah another another instance of obsession. In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it. What did you learn from her obsession? A couple of things one that the same things that make a creative process beautiful and profound can also make it wrenching and difficult so I think for her part of what I loved about the photographs. She had created of this family was the fact that they existed over thirty years the fact that they seemed saturated with the intimacy of these bonds. But I also saw the way is that you know. First of all there was a a kind of pain embedded in her relationship with them because she was exposed to the injustice of their poverty the extent of their suffering not that their lives were entirely composed of suffering but they held a lot of difficulty. And that you know for her there was a a real ongoing pain in becoming so close to them so I think that double edged sword quality of like the same same thing that makes something strong can also make it..

In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it. What did you learn from her obsession? A couple of things one that the same things that make a creative process beautiful and profound can also make it wrenching and difficult so I think for her part of what I loved about the photographs. She had created of this family was the fact that they existed over thirty years the fact that they seemed saturated with the intimacy of these bonds. But I also saw the way is that you know. First of all there was a a kind of pain embedded in her relationship with them because she was exposed to the injustice of their poverty the extent of their suffering not that their lives were entirely composed of suffering but they held a lot of difficulty. And that you know for her there was a a real ongoing pain in becoming so close to them so I think that double edged sword quality of like the same same thing that makes something strong can also make it..

"Not just any whale song though. The sound pattern is similar to the call of a blue whale but at a much higher frequency the mystery behind did that sound has gripped the imagination of people right around the world. Leslie Jamison tells that story of obsession and others like it in her latest collection of essays. Make it scream make it burn. Leslie is the author of the New York Times bestsellers recovering and the empathy exams. Leslie Good Morning Can Morning Matt. Let me start to be here. It's great to have you let me start with that sound. It's the sound of fifty two blue. What is the story of this whale? The story of fifty blue which is still ongoing actually is the story of the whale who ultimately became known as the loneliest whale in the world as you said his his his song was first discovered by these naval audio engineers. Once a set of Navy hydrophones had been kind of decommissioned from tracking Soviet subs at the after the end of the Cold War and they heard the song that was unlike. Any whale song. They'd ever heard and wants. Their results became public. People became obsessed with this this elusive Wale and his song for a couple of reasons that his song was different from any other whales and that he was always tracked traveling alone. I was interested in telling not only the story of the whale himself. And how he had been discovered but really the stories of people who had become obsessed with him and why they had become obsessed with him and and what sorts of meanings they projected onto him. Told me more about that. Because to your point people people became obsessed with this. Well Yeah I think and and I'm very interested in in getting at the insides of people in the mysterious insides of people through these things that they get consume buying. Can't let go of so you know I tell the story. Three of a Polish tabloid photographer who got down by his girlfriend and became very attached to the whale as a sort of mascot of heartbreak and ended up getting a massive massive tattoo of the whale. That I can show you many many photographs of if you're interested across his back I tell the story of a an Irish union organizer Sir. who sort of restarted his life and Middle Age and for him the whale was a mascot of endurance? I really got quite close to one woman men who was recovering from a coma up in Harlem and for her the whale was simultaneously symbol of loneliness and a symbol of what it might mean into be resolutely adamantly independent. Why did people project so much onto the whale? There's a line that somebody says that the whale is everything. What was it about this whale? That allowed them not just to get the Tattoo and to write songs about it and to create art inspired by the whale but to project all of that onto this thing I think there were a few elements at play. I think for starters. The whale was simultaneously vivid and distance. So it's it's an immediate media image of this whale all alone in the vast ocean you can picture you can kinda get attached to that image but the will was far enough away that we didn't really know do that much about him and that not knowing made it easier to project sort of everything onto him. I also think there's something about Wales Moby. Dick is obviously the original white canvas. Bewail who comes to stand for lots of different things to lots of different people in the Melville novel but I I think whales are simultaneously genially so huge and powerful and that with this particular whale there was a sense of vulnerability living alongside that huge massive power because has he was always alone because he was a little bit different and I think those veins of vulnerability made him a a a more appealing source of obsession. What were are you more interested in the whale or that sense of Obsession I? My ultimate interest was within the obsession of which became a participant in as well as the documents are of. I there anybody who knows me during the eighteen months span probably two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen. When I was working on that long piece nose and was subjected to listening to like a particular song that had been inspired by the whale? Everybody in my life was hearing a lot about the whale. I myself was coming out of a long term relationship and so I think that idea of solitude and what could be done with solitude became Quite moving to me as well and so when I was writing about these people who are obsessed. I wasn't writing about them. As kind of clinical anthropologist. I was writing about them as as kindred spirits in a way. How'd you land on this? I mean you have written a lot about obsession and things that people become obsessed with whether it's running incredibly long distances whether it's it's the whale whether it's a mysterious skin condition or the idea of reincarnation how'd you end up landing on what you become obsessed with so there are lots of pads to my subjects. Sometimes their personal so in the case of the ultra marathon the brutal race through the Tennessee Z.. Wilderness that you mentioned i. It first came onto my radar screen because my brother was running it and he is now run it run it and not finished it many times which is kind of in some ways points race did not finish other pieces come to me. Through editors and editors approach me with a lot of ideas that I don't take so I think it it always always comes down to the question of whether I feel both a deeper level of connection to the story and usually that deeper level of connection comes from feeling like I can tell both the surface story of the whale of families who believe their kids were reincarnated spirits from the past. There's there's that story that I can report out on the tangible level but for me to really take the story on there has to be some set of deeper questions that I feel like that surface. This material is granting the access to and that's ultimately my entry point into the story. How do you define that? I mean the the idea of obsession because it's not just a fascination. It's not a preoccupation. It's something that's deeper and it's not just about time either. It's it's something that goes beyond that. What's what's the definition that you apply to that I think for me part of part of what I come back to you in thinking about? What makes something an obsession? Is that it. It feels as much a part of of a person as the external realities of their lives so their family life their job life their daily commute their their home where they live. You know that that this obsession if you were to ask that person like who are you. What makes you who you are? What makes you tick that? This obsession would be just as much a part of that answer. Maybe even a bigger part of that answer then. Those External realities of their daily pragmatic life. Life it's almost like if if every person is sort of the is the version of like the surface of the earth or kind of geologic crust than the obsession is this Fisher that opens in the earth in. It feels like that Fisher can deliver me to something deeper and more multi and stranger inside of them. You could dismiss some of the things that people people are obsessed with. There's a piece in the collection about couple who believes that their son was Second World War pilot and his past life and it could be easy to say. Well that's odd and kind of put it off to one side. You don't do that. The why the reincarnation piece was a good example of the fact act that there was a reality happening there no matter what. So maybe there was the reincarnation of a World War Two fighter pilot in in which case that was a reality that was happening but even even if you were to somehow which would be impossible I think totally disprove the possibility that he was reincarnated fighter. Pilot there's still a reality of what's happening there. which is that a family has constructed an entire sense of identity around around the soul of their son being the sole of this pilot? And that's become a big part of their sense of who he is as a person it's become a big sense of who for him who he is says the person and it's become a big part of their family narrative so for me it's impossible to dismiss because whatever the truth of the reincarnation piece there is a truth truth happening there of the store. Is that this family has been telling themselves and kind of constructing their their lives around as a journalist. Or you comfortable with that. I mean you talk about with this in in The pieces as well the line that you may or may not be crossing. It's not as though you believe their story. But you don't completely dismiss it as well and you almost believe you you you find yourself almost aligning with with what they're saying right. Yeah so I think my I think. My understanding of my role was the journalist in relation to their story was that I had to pursue that angle. Of how does the story of reincarnation align with the facts that we can see your. The scientific frameworks we do have but at the same time it also felt like to me and even more compelling part of my role as a journalist was to really investigate what the story had come. I'm too mean for the family and to be as honest as I could on the page about my own. Subjective investments in the story. Why I felt defensive? Incisive of this belief in reincarnation why I wanted to sort of make a case for a belief in reincarnation as suggesting something beautiful about a human understanding of the soul even if we couldn't back it up with physics for example. When I'm writing about reincarnation I'm also early on and twelve step recovery and actually a a lot of the ideas that were appealing to me about twelve step recovery? Were also appealing to me in the vision of Self Hood that reincarnation suggested and so I put that I put put that kind of bias on the table. Because I think I'm telling a story of my encounter with a phenomenon and that's a part of that story. It's also but encounters with with people told me a little bit of votes the photographer that you meet in one of these pieces any appeal. Yeah another another instance of obsession. In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it.
