That is like kim coming over with a bottle of wine and let us fuck and talk even if she didn't care about hillary under five kids and that you know because obviously she was nicer daughter ireland. But there's just got to be some satisfaction in knowing that your ex husband's wife is been proven to be full of shit as far as this still doesn't mean she's not a nice person. A charitable person. But this is weird in a nutshell. She grew up in boston. She went to high school here. Her parents are white her. She's relatives all the way from like the revolutionary war or whatever. There is no spanish in her blood at all. The dad got into teaching some spanish studies. The data and the mom who are still married moved to spain in two thousand and eleven. And i think the brother might have gone there as well and visited or whatever and she went on in so many interviews so many things to say that her family lives in spain so in one interview. They're like now wait. What happens like i came here. I came here when i was nineteen to go to school at nyu. And the two female interviewers are like. Oh from spain yes. My family lives in spain. now. She didn't say i was born in spain and then she tried to say in correcting that when she didn't think it was going to be a big deal like the first day this broke. She did an instagram Tv like right to camera and then she took it down and that's when she said What i meant was. I moved from boston to nyu when i was nineteen because all these people went to high school with hillary in boston so i thought that was really interesting now. They met her and alec met. According to. everything's been researched. Is he walked into a restaurant. New york was there and she was there and she was speaking perfect spanish to a waiter and he said i must tell you and she said you must know me now. I think he just was like loved that little sexy spanish. You know much like a selma hayek. Who was his love. Interest in thirty rock for in two thousand eight two thousand and nine. He met hillary in two thousand and eleven. And i think that just was kinda like hot. It's like it's like the couple. Let's see we're here. They are getting married. I'm looking on my youtube for those of you. That like to watch on youtube all the photos from their wedding and she kept very much with the spanish theme. She has this long traditional spanish. Veil that covers your head. It's very you know it's from that type of style and they. I think they had a spanish speaking priest. They found eight. Spanish church catholic church in in new york to get married in and she did interviews forty people from my family over from spain so it was crazy. You can imagine how crazy it was with the spaniards here. Well those people are just people that live in their vacation home that like retired there and came over and then she said oh my god and my relatives there like how do we say your new. New name is baldwin baldwin. They don't their spanish. They don't know how to save baldwin. I mean it just continues on alec. Baldwin goes on david letterman and starts imitating his wife spanish accent and he goes and it's not being racist because she is from spain and she you know and so he's doing he's playing into it and i just think people sitting back loved it and the more that they loved it and encourage it. I think he just went along with it. I don't know that he ever really asked her about her high school life. He might be one of those guys. That doesn't really ask. I don't know. I ask a lot of questions. But you know. I just interviewed emily simpson from real housewives of o see and. She said she's never really asked her husband about his mormonism and they've been together twelve years so i don't know how other couples work but i think he loved the package so kelly just said what do you think when he met the parents and they didn't have an accent. I don't know that he really cared to get to know the parents a lot of you know there. He's an older guy. He has his wife. She's popping out babies. She's really sweet to him. She's down to boehner many time she can whip up a nice meal. I dunno and you know he has to. He's one of these guys that works a lot and he kind of has to. I don't think he's enormously wealthy as a star you know. He needs to take the. He does like a show with celebrity. Some game show. I forgot the name of it to the truth or to tell the truth. I don't know what it and he said. I take paycheck like i. There's jobs i take straight up. I need the paycheck. I've got you know six kids including ireland. And you know home in the hamptons home in new york i think he has really expensive lifestyle and But i think he totally loves and loves what she was. and i don't know i just. I don't know that. I think she was kind of used to presenting herself. Like that was starting to get into it and then like on their first date you know she said oh for the first five weeks we just held hands and then you know five months into the relationship. We got an apartment together and so it's just fascinating. I want to see a movie made about this. I really do of when do you go. When do i stop. Or for some people like madonna. Who picked up an english accent. When she was living in england did she just become so used to it that she kind of forgot her old way of speaking. Like if i had to do an impression of drew barrymore war. I could do her for an entire week and then i could. I do for a month. Yeah could do for year. Probably and then. Maybe i'll just forget if it was part of my life if i had to do this just like when somebody became becomes an actor in a really intense movie. They sometimes say i'm not going to get out of this character the entire three months. I'm doing this movie. I'm going to be like this one. It's break time at lunch. I'm gonna. That's what i'm gonna do because that's how i do it so i don't know it just fascinating and then at first ireland defended her and i'm so sick of people bullying you know and being cruel. What do you care and stay at people's lives. You don't know well. I think it's one thing to be an actor and you put yourself out there as an actor but in this day and age. If you're an actor or television personality that also goes and makes a huge presence on instagram. Then i really think you cannot bitch because if you're going to open your life on instagram if you're going to profit from instagram than people do know you those nine hundred thousand people that follow you do feel like they know you and they feel deceived
Interview With Dr Bradley Onishi
"I listen to several podcasts. Every week and it is especially a thrill. When i can bring onto host of one of the podcasts that i listen to on a regular basis because i feel like i know this person already but we've never had a conversation in this case. It's actor bradley. She he's the associate professor of religion at skidmore college. Which i look where that was bred as like you must be snowed in spirit man. I'm here in southern california for california boy whose deaths from maui. This is not my native environment so well a little bit of your background. You actually went to zoos. The pacific university. Which is right down the road from where i live where you got your be in philosophy and always wonder you know when a undergraduate majors flossy where they planning to end up. You ended up getting a master's in philosophical theology at oxford. And then you did. Some time in france doing postgraduate work in philosophy. And then finally you finish up at the university of california. Santa barbara doing your piece de and religious studies. I just want. It's tell my listeners. If you ever enjoy some of the conversations i get into on this podcast. With my guest that crosses over into this post evangelical political sort of realm. The person feeding me. Most of my information is now my guest on the show. That's kind now thank you. That's flattering thank you can. Let's start with your story. Because i think what set you up. Not just as an academic to have such a substantive take on what's been going on during the trump years before trump years where we're going to go after the trump years is also not just rooted in your research but it's it's based in your own life so tell us a little bit about that. Yeah i let me just say thank you for that flattering introduction and just. It's it's an honor to be here. So i've been looking forward to this for a long time and i'm really grateful so you know for me i. I grew up in north orange county. My father's japanese-american my mother's white woman from tennessee. And they met in the middle He's from hawaii and we grew up. Your belinda placentia fullerton area. I did not grow up religious. My dad was was culturally. Buddhist is what i would say he. He mowed the lawn. At the buddhist temple on maui in inkatha louis he. He went to japanese school there. But when i was thirteen and ask them about what it meant to be a buddhist to give me a book and i read it and i thought after i read it he would discuss it and i realized later. He gave it to me because he didn't know anything that was in it. He just didn't want to have me ask questions about what it meant to be a buddhist at fourteen. I had a very extreme conversion at a evangelical mega church and a conversion meant that i went from the kid who was hanging out with other teenagers behind the movie theater. Smoking and drinking and doing that kind of stuff to within months standing in front of the movie theater asking people if they knew my savior the lord. Jesus christ and if they knew where their so would be return ity. Tell us a little bit about how that dramatic conversion took place. I was invited to wednesday night. Bible study at rose drive friends church. rose drive is part of that network of quaker churches that richard nixon grew up in so i i was invited to that church by a girlfriend and i thought you know i'm fourteen. There's not a lot of ways to see your girlfriend on a with night off to pragmatist and there's no way mom can say no to this. If i want to go to church she's gonna say yes. So let's do it. This is a great plan She dumped me very quickly but that youth group became my second home. I found there what you would find in the ninety s at youth groups all over the place. Young cool hip leaders. They had tattoos. They played the guitar. We have a lot of fun games. The bible messages weren't boring and all of a sudden the existential angst. I had about the meaning of life and the depression that i faced throughout my entire childhood. I found answers found solutions to my condition. In jesus in god and so a very quickly i went from a kid probably hanging around folks who are going down the wrong direction drugs and alcohol and other stuff too when my mom asked me what i wanted for christmas on my When i was sixteen. I asked her how much she was gonna spend. She told me i said mom. I want you to give me that money. And i'm going to buy as many pamphlets and tracts and bibles as i can for people in nepal and i'm going to send them there because that's what's important and that's why how we should be using our money. Now i gotta ask you bread. Did your parents on the one hand. I'm sure they're going well. This is nice. He's not hanging around with those bad people anymore. The water bozos right. Okay right these these these yoga right but but at the same time is dislike. Did our son just joined a cult. So it's exactly what you said. For mom. there was times. I think she was relieved. But you know when your son is saying. Hey i don't buy me letterman's jacket for the basketball team. Send the money to nepal for bibles. I think she kinda wish. I was back to the guy getting caught with the kid. Smoking pot again. I mean she was kind of like. This is a little extreme. It was a lot harder for my dad. My dad's japanese-american guy. He grew up in the cradle of asian american. You know Communities on maui. His life was in the buddhist temple even though he he really didn't wasn't a practicing buddhist so for me to join a mega church especially church. That was ninety percent. White was really hard for him and it took a lot of convincing to let me go to the wednesday night. Bible study or the retreat or the youth group party or whatever.
Episode 67: the Million Mom March-- Continuing it's Legacy 20 Years Later
"So Donna I want to start with you. Can you talk to our listeners? I know you're going to have to be brief about it. But tell our listeners what prompted you to begin the million mom, March, what was the million mom, March you off and can you take us through your journey? Sure. Well, it was August 10th 1999 typical vacation day on Fire Island. I was with my daughters who were four and five years old that summer they had also gone to a JCC day camp in New Jersey and never what I dreamed that suddenly I would be frightened that they would be targets off from a white supremacist on that day a white supremacist storm to JCC Day Camp, Granada Hills, California. He opened fired on Little Campers and fortunately none of the kids dog. But they suffered great injuries, including a sixteen-year-old day camp counselor and my world changed at that moment at the time. I was a part-time publicist for Late Show with David Letterman. I felt like, you know, I have time to do something serious like volunteer to do PR for gun violence prevention organization. And and really the only one I knew of and usually get through to was was called handgun control Inc then but for purpose of this podcast, I'm calling it by its since rebranded name since 2001 the Brady organization, so I called Grady but I filled a volunteers and it was very hard to volunteer at that particular moment because Congress had just a few weeks before failed to close the gun-show loophole that was exposed when Columbine happened. That's how those Shooters got their guns through a loophole. And so there was a lot of discouragement in the basic. I was told but we still tell people who call your cock. Spend and I was embarrassed that I hadn't actually called my congressman at all since becoming a mother and you know, I knew the number by heart because I had worked on Capitol Hill for years right out of college. So I know the importance of making your voice heard and I even understood the importance when like five women would sit out in our reception area five women used to terrify my boss US senator Russell long. He thought five women sitting out and reception area meant five thousand women were right behind them. So I am going to tell you a secret JK I I wrote a book so I had more detail about how the whole minimum March came together and it's a great book. Thank you, but I left out as a little secret and I know I've told a lot of people that you're not the first person I'm talking but I think it's frozen on a broadcast. My goal was never to really get a million moms. My goal was to get five moms in every congressional district in this country but to Orange Is the 2175 person March just in the sounded interesting so because I'm a pure person million mom, March a little more Pizzazz, but I thought okay million. Mom March million is a thousand million as a metaphor, you know for a lot of people and so we launched it on Labor Day when I say we I get all my friends who I'd worked with. I worked at CBS news for several years. I worked in different, you know different places that immediate mavens and they helped me put together, you know logos slogans a press release and we launched on Labor Day. I was actually shocked on how newsworthy they they considered a million mom March and Mother's Day. It was nine months from the day. I applied to the permit on August seventeenth two Mother's Day that made fourteen. We were the headlines wrote them, you know takes nine months to make a baby nine months to make March, you know, maybe you know, we get congressmen to pass laws to protect those

The 7 mindsets of connectors
"To another episode of industry thought leader podcast brought to you by industry thought leader kademi stand out the heard and influence on your highest and recross also known as the podcasting quyen. Now my guest today says the simple truth. Is this connectors find. Great success in life. And if you don't realize it yet we are now living in the age of networking. So do you want to increase your influence and impact by becoming a better connector but join no way to start with. Today's guest is going to show you. How join me on the show. Today is michelle letterman. Michelle is an accomplished speaker trainer. Approach an author of four books including the internationally recognized the levin laws of likability She was named by forbes as one of the twenty five professional networking experts to watch and a former ny professor financial executive and recovering cpa. She now works with organizations and individuals to help them build real relationship. The greater results through the company executive essentials now on today show. Michelle is going to share. Why do we need to be connected. The seven levels of connectors as well as the seven mindset of connectors. Welcome to the show. Michelle thanks for having me on. We know and of probably heard through business. That networking is so so important. But i love the way that you've said we're now living in the age of networking. It's so more important than it ever was and so today. We're really going to dive into to connecting. And what is a connector and those seven levels but what interested you. You've got a great background diverse background. What was it specifically around networking and connecting. That attracted you that now. You really specializing in that area. I always say. I teach all the mistakes ever made so that you don't make them too and i used to be that polarizing personality that's where my research started around like ability to understand. What was it that was doing that was causing either them to love me or to hate me but there wasn't a whole lot of in between and really understanding how does connection form and what enables connections to happen but what i started to learn. Was that my results. Drastically changed when. I took a relationship partisan Approach right and that's what a connector is somebody who prioritize relationships in all their interactions professional personal. It doesn't matter the relationship comes. i mean. obviously you're going to talk a little bit about. Why be connected. You've just established. It's so important to do that. Relationships what are some of the things before we dive into the seven levels of connectors. What are the things that you want us to be aware of. That might be because of what's happened in the world now while some of the things that people are still doing that would have been okay and and where you know something that we would do in the past but really moving forward into twenty twenty one. We need to realize that this is not helping us to be that connector. That person who are attracting air ideal clients and stakeholders. What are some things that we need to be aware of. Don't do this moving forward the what not to do. There's one thing in it's really interesting. This book came out in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred and in two thousand twenty there has been a lot around the the social inequality and social injustice and there's a whole section on the book about diversifying and expanding our connections and it's great to know everybody in a certain fields or everybody a certain geographic region. It's even better when we can go broad. And when we diversify our connections we make better decisions. We have more access to information. We are further up on the connector spectrum. So what other. Things we don't want to do is we. Don't want to call out the differences. We want to call out the similarities because the differences are often obvious between us but the similarities are things that we have to look for and one of the ways to be more inclusive. Connector is to think about focusing on the similarities calling out the larry's it's not about distinguishing or disregarding those differences but that that's not where we need to start. That's not where we need to focus. It's interesting you should say that because there's been a couple of times where i've reached out to someone here in melbourne with. Just come out of area tight lockdown. So the may it's been very intentional in networking linked gin and it's interesting because some people reach and say well actually you'll not my ideal clients keeping that i've been in fray and i'm thinking well i might not your ideal client but i talked to a lot of people around the globe connected to people such as michelle let him and who is a specialist an expert in this area. And so that's the kind of thing you talking about. Is the giant. Just be so focused narrow minded. Because you just don't know who that person is connected to and can you up to a whole new area of people. Yes that's exactly it. I have always been against this networking. I'm like it. Has the word working who wants to do it. And when i was writing the most recent book the connectors advantage. My brother-in-law came into office. And he said well. What's the difference with networking in connector. And i said networking something that you do a connector. That's who you are. And that's the shift. I want people to make rather than doing something and and when we tend to network for need and we network for now and it is very narrowly focused as you said but when we think about just connecting and building relationships because we want to because we get to then we have this really firm and tight community that you can call upon and i gotta tell you it was people. I went to business school. That you got me a client at the moma and my sister's boyfriend from middle school got me into nbc so it isn't about strategic networking. It isn't about well. I don't wanna talk to you because you can't do anything for me. It's being social and curious which is one of the mindsets it's being open and accepting it's enjoying the connection for the sake of connection and knowing that the rest will follow.

"letterman" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"I immediately missed like. It wasn't just you know father-son intimacy. But i just missed hanging out with them You know what i mean and i. I wonder if you enjoyed spending time with your dad in that way and missed that piece of at well i. it's an interesting question My father worked six days a week so we didn't really get a chance to hang up much. There was a vacation once a year for about a week. And it would be a car trip to a convention for f- td the flora's telegraph delivery. And that was it. We didn't hang out so much. But i i loved him and what i when he died. I went through. A panic. may be fueled by the liquor. But that i i'd forgotten what he looked like. And that that scared the crap out of me because i thought whoa wait a minute. Here's a man. I've known all my life and i'll never see again and i can't remember what he looks like. And that was the deep troubling panic befell me. So maybe that's a form of actually missing him. You know we had activities but he just didn't have the time to spend with the kids. I asked you whether you're bomb. Thought your dad was funny. Did your mom think you're finding. I don't i don't think so not not many. No i don't think i was. I used to get my mouth washed out with soap so in terms of you put that in show business terms. That's kind of the ultimate heckler Here let me show you how unfunny i think you are. I shove bar soap. And so i think that was No i i don't know but i don't know that she had to. I don't know that she needed to. She raised three kids. As far as i can remember. All of us had happy childhoods with the exception of the bar of soap here and there but it just now do seemed like we'll what was that all about. I mean it certainly was a deterrent and it. It's not the most unpleasant thing a person can endure but it now it just seemed like oh come on seriously. The bar soap in a. It doesn't doesn't seem to have scarred me. But i don't know if she was funny or not. I can remember when she was on the show. If i would make an alleged joke it would be met with own. David which led me to believe. She didn't get it or didn't like it and then she'd come after me with a bar soap and i a good lord. I'm forty leave me alone. We have more with david letterman. Still to come.

Let's get back to my conversation with david letterman. You must've at some point. Had the idea you were going to go into show business. 'cause you went to you majored in broadcasting in college. Did you think you were going to be a comic or an actor or a a tv weatherman. Which is you know one of your first jobs. Young thank you. We're going to host a tv show about the four h. Club for the rest of your life. Another win your jobs right. Did you have a scheme. no. I didn't have a scheme i it was so good. I was so lucky that. Because i couldn't i didn't get very good grades but i took a class at public speaking when i was in a sophomore in high school. And you had to get up and give an ad lib four or five minute introductory speech in front of the class. That was our first signed. And i did that and it was the only thing i can remember doing in school. That seemed effortless. Everything else was difficult. And from from that day i thought to myself ok. This problem is solved. You just have to find a place that'll pay you to do that. And the only logical place seemed to be radio or tv so i studied radio and tv and then immediately started. I got a job in at the same television station when i was still in college. So that was. That was very fortunate. And i don't know how it works now if it's easier or harder to get a job at radio or tv or show business than it used to be. Just don't know. But i i knew at the time me getting a job in show. Business or television was really easy at the. I got very lucky. My friend of mine Jerry norris his brother dick. Norris worked at television station and they were looking for a summer announcer and so dick said well. How your friend dave. Come down and audition side. I went in just as kind of a hoot and for I don't know why. But they gave me the job. And i worked there for three or four years During and after college dave. I'm sorry to do this to you. But we do have a clip of of your real from. I think in nineteen sixty nine. I'm sorry to do this you jesse. But i'm getting chest pains. So i'm gonna have to call the medics. So don't be alarmed.

"letterman" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"It's eye. I'm jesse thorn by guest. This week is david lamb. Dave is of course the longtime late night talk show host perhaps the most well known of them all the late show late night the tonight show he also had his own morning show for a long time and before he was on national. Tv dave was a weatherman and local radio dj in his hometown of indianapolis indiana. I have to say that. For years when i have gotten interviewed. People have asked me the question. Who would you most like to interview in the world and along with a few of my public radio. Colleagues ira glass and terry gross and maybe the old play by play guy for the san francisco giants. Hank greenwald david. Letterman is the broadcaster who led me into a career in broadcasting is the funniest broadcaster ever. He revolutionized late night television and comedy on network television. He is in my opinion. An actual genius in this interview. We talk about dave's early days breaking into showbusiness his time in indiana in los angeles in his assent to the late show. We also discussed how his personal life intersected with his professional life letterman had multiple affairs with subordinates. On shows he hosted. He'll tell me how those relationships affected him the people around him and the workplaces. And of course we'll talk about letterman's latest project. It's called my next guest needs no introduction. You can watch it on netflix in it. Letterman sits down for a long informal chat with people who quite literally do not need an introduction. Barack obama kanye west ellen degeneres and iron man himself robert downey junior when when that thing clamps onto your head is up there or is it not really excellent question. Initially it was everything was really there. They wanted to spend as little as they could on. Cg replacement so. I remember this helmet. Went on and like there'd be a shot and i've been this whole suit and they say all right robert you're gonna like you landed on the roof so when we see action just go like that just landed and then start moving forward. So i put this helmet on and it slammed close. And i couldn't see anything and then these. Led lights went on and it was like manchurian candidate. I could. I was absolutely blinded by the doing the last avengers. They he robert. Would you mind putting on the helmet. No yes no put dots here. And then you can pick up david. Letterman welcome to bulls. I am so happy to have you on the show. Great pleasure to be here. Thank you very much for your time. Attention and interest jesse. I like that question that you asked robert downey junior. It reminds me of a show. About interviewing. Where i interviewed professional interviewers and i remember larry king told me that the question that he was most proud of or maybe it was most emblematic of his interviewing style. Was he had an an airline pilot ceo and he asked him the question when you take off in your airplane. Do you know that you're going to be able to land it. Yeah and i wonder come to think of it. i was expecting something trivial but that really is the essence. Isn't it yeah. I mean i feel like i feel like that helmet a real helmet or not a real helmet. Is you know. it's the same honest curiosity this a sort of tangential to this. When i was a kid in indianapolis and working at a television station. Which was the in those days. The abc affiliate. And i had a. i had a show. I had several shows for one reason or another but this one show we would have people on and we thought would be interesting and there was a story in the local newspaper. They at apple's star about two women who had been cab drivers in the city of indianapolis for years twenty five years thirty years and we thought well this. How can this not be great. And so they came in and they were all mike up. I was in my sutin. We were ready to go. And i introduced them. And i said so in all the time. you guys you. Women have been driving a cab. Anything in unusual ever happen. And there's a long pause. No not really. Thanks for stopping by and there. You haven't. I want to talk about when you're academy. Let's talk about when you were a kid when you were a kid Can you tell me a little bit about your parents. And what kind of people they were. My mother was older than i was and so was my father. She and my father got married when she was. I think maybe five six years younger than he was. They were both from the same. Small town in indiana the in southwestern indiana which it's day was strip mining country. They they got married moved into apples and my father got a job at a flower shop. Although i think he what he really wanted to do is get into show business. But when you're from a small town in southwestern indiana no one really knows how to get into show business or even if it's legal and she was very quiet and the hard work hardest. Working person i've known in my lifetime and she had a regular schedule of working very very hard and doing things that i believe today are probably not done regularly or if they are done regularly you call someone in to do it. Like stripping and waxing the floors like cleaning the wallpaper like changing the screens like painting the woodwork. Like rolling up the carpets and cleaning them like doing the laundry by hand by by canning fruits and vegetables out of the garden and it was endless and it It certainly made an impression on me and one would think that because of this routine this daily influence that i would be hard working but god. I just couldn't keep up with her. It was really hard. And i would mow the lawn once a week. And that was my not.

How are you able to work if he day being depressed I just push through it I had to push through it could be funny. Well. As funny as you can when you're depressed but it's a sinkhole and and people who have gone through it know exactly what I'm talking about. It's a sinkhole and you think you're not coming out of it. You really think you're not coming out of it. I was amazed by it. I. Was Amazed by the chemical mechanism in your brain that can just drop you. Like that I mean just. This guy. And then somebody told me they said you know what? We're given these chemicals. These serotonin and whatever else dopamine and so forth. Because if we didn't have them, the world would scare the crap out of us. Absolutely. So I yeah. I don't know if that's true or not but a- when I was depressed at it made sense.

Is a lot of stuff you know there's a lot of stuff I still feel like you need to heal or on. Well, I'll tell you that you could share with for a long time. I thought it was a decent guy. but yet thinking that I was a decent guy, I was still capable of behavior that didn't wasn't the coincidental to living in decent life and then that's what I'm working on. I. I want I want to really be the person. I believe that I was I wanna be a good person I I I want to believe you were I believed I was a good person but yet I was capable of behavior inconsistent with somebody who has a good person. and. you can't radically the record but going forward, you can not be that way again.

"David Letterman went on to strike a multimillion dollar deal with CBS, his new show with tape in New York an air opposite Jay Leno. For the past twenty years the two comic legends and rivals have gone head to head in the ratings with an almost even split. So. You sat in all those years everybody expected you to be the air. Did you also in your somewhere in your subconscious think you would be the air not subconscious I had a meeting and they said We want you to take Johnny's job and we're here's how we're going to do it. We just want to make sure that you're interested in this and and then we're going to call the so and so and then we think that it'll be a combination where you start filling in and then eventually Johnny Goes A. so they had this conversation we had two meetings and I finally said, this is great. I said have have you told? Have you mentioned this to Johnny? And they said, well, no, we haven't. We haven't mentioned this to Johnny and I said well. You know I, I can't have this conversation until I know that it's okay Johnny and that's the last I heard. So it wasn't just me wanting in hoping. There was a conversation they had they had reached out to me but I understand that what they wanted was completely self-serving. They wanted to continue to maintain the show so that they can make a lot of money. Now what NBC wanted turned out to be something different. So I really I can't complain about that. You know you can't force somebody to want you. Deserve to have that spot. Deserve no should have had I was disappointed that I didn't get it but I never thought. I never felt like something had been ripped for my comes. That's a fair answer. Okay. So you know there is an assumption over the years that because you didn't get it and Jay Leno did that that's where the rivalry between the two of you started. Is that true? No No. Jay and I were friends. We were always friends before all of this happened. He has away. He's an unusual fellow I've I've never met..

This was an idea that I believe she and my mother inspired to accomplish the building named after and I sort of felt like let's just wait till I drop dead and then you name whatever you want after me or named nothing after me but it is now such a incredible source of pride for me and it's just one of the great things in my life. So when you came here in nineteen, sixty, five, radio and television as a major certainly was not a popular career path. No, you chose it because because I knew that I wanted to somehow broadcasting.

As a boy in the nineteen fifties David spent hours watching TV. Arthur, Godfrey Steve Allen and Johnny Carson when did you I? Know you were funny well. I'm. Still. WAITING FOR THE RESULTS But you had to know somewhere in your conscious subconscious you knew you were funny Dave. We'll like I had a bunch of buddies and they were all funny. So it it didn't.

Hey, look at this I'm pretty funny because I never felt that way.

"Hey guys willie geist here with another episode of the sunday. Sit down podcast and i'm going to take the liberty of bonus a very special episode. The sunday's account high castes gasp because my guest is an american icon agai. You haven't heard much from or seen much of since he left late night four years ago. The legend david ledermann dave is getting ready for the second season of his netflix show called my next guests needs no introduction. You might remember in season one. He interviewed people like like president obama jay z. Tina fey malala george clooney among others another season coming now with guests like conway ellen kalinda gates tiffany haddish were some that he's announced so the way this happened to the way this came to be was a simple email from dave's rep who said i'm. I'm gonna put dave out for an interview for the second season. We'd love to do it with you. You know what i said we can find probably some time in our schedule for david letterman for god's sakes so so what we did was figuring out what dave wanted to do and what dave wanted to do was to go fly fishing. We went up in westchester county new york about an hour outside new york city north of manhattan and we i went to the great they shop the bedford sportsman in cross river new york where my buddies charlie and todd who also happen to be dave's buddies we share a bait shop dave and i do we went got baited up to go fly fishing then we went and we stood in a stream for about an hour and fished ashed and fished and fished and i'm just gonna go ahead and tell you right now. We didn't catch a damn thing not a single fish but when you got the waiters on your standing in the stream shooting with david letterman. It's kind of okay that you're not catching fish. Once we finished. We just had a couple of adirondack chairs to paint the picture for your right next to the stream. You might hear the stream in the background. When we're talking during our conversation you'll also hear dave time and again laughing but then a little frustrated because behind me the fish are jumping brown trout surfacing in going back under wondering where we're all these fish when we were standing in that stream for an hour outside chance chance are big camera crew who was also in the water with us might have scared them off. Can i blame the crew for us night. Catching fish dave while we were fishing blame the fish he said willie were doing our our part. The fish have to live up to their end of the bargain. Dave and i talked about his life since late night as i said he left four years ago we talk about what he's been up to. Since then his sixteen year old son harry has been at the center of what he's been up to since then also his discovery of costco. It's funny talking to david thank for thirty five years during his career he was in a bubble that took him from home to the office in back home. He wasn't aware of things like telephones. He gets into just just an amazing bank front conversation with the great david letterman right now on the sunday sit down podcast dave. Thanks for doing this. Thank you very very much for doing this and thank you to everybody <hes> in support and production. It's very it's very nice. I appreciate it. I just have a disclaimer here <hes> i. I'm <music> so embarrassed because people who actually know how to fly fish will look at this and say well. Let's just put him in the waiting pool. I i know i know i made a fool of myself. I know embarrassed myself but you know here's the important thing willie i had a i had a fun day and isn't that the story of fishing for me. It is is yeah so all of those purists out there too bad. You know you're not having as much fun as we are. You had fun right did i. That's all it counts else where else he is standing in the middle of a stream with buddy. That's right throwing a fly in there. Yep yep and we're n y. You know who knows we may still get a fish. I think we're not finished yet. There's plenty of sun out here. So what's your analysis. That's high new. What's what's your analysis of what went wrong out there on the water for us. <hes> i always believe it's my lack of the ability my lack of patience <hes> as a certain amount out of intuition that is <hes> eventually woven into the fabric of <hes> fly fishing. I've seen guys. I one time eh stream in montana. I said to my buddy. I said we haven't caught anything all day. It was just like this and you know me. It's it's the way i cast oh. There's just rose rose right out there at the minute. We step out yeah well. We we wouldn't have gotten anyway. We had one or both paddles <hes> i. I said it was a bus of day and i said just give me a fish and so he cast about the thirty feet away bank. I cast beautiful brown trout about like that and i and i said come on your something. That's it do it again. Second cast bang same place same result to two fish brown trout about like that so there's people like that then there's people you know like you and me yeah.

"letterman" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"I loved him. And I loved to, you know, the, the way he interacted with people in a changed over the years. But when I was younger young comic because I just wanna I just wanna do Dave, man. And boy that first time man that first time I did David Letterman, that was like, you know, I look back on it, and I watch it. And I you know, I, I didn't make the best clothing decisions. I went out and bought a suit like the day before, and it was much more, shiny than I remembered it in the store, and it, it's a pretty shiny suit that I'm wearing my first Letterman but I remember being so specific. And you know, wanting to be, you know, just just wanting it to be perfect. And I, I worked at set and I told them like it was one of the first times, I'm like, I don't need. You don't give me a Mike. I see guys on these shows holding Mike, you don't have to you're in a theater, and they got you. You know they got a boom mic. They got a, you know, usually have a law on you. I just wanna do it old school. You know, just stand out there, have my hands free, no Mike and it's cold in there. And biff is at the curtain, and you go out, and it was like it was, it was a cathartic in monumental moment, it was one of the biggest moments in my life to be on Dave Letterman for the first time. And then after you do it. Once when am I going to get on again, and it was very sparse for me? You know, but then I got to do panel with them, finally, like not long before he went off the air. I got to sit down with him, and it was just like is one of the grays experiences in my life and show business was to just be able to walk out and sit and tell tell Letterman the Mel Brooks story now the weird thing is, is that, you know, he's coming over. He came over the other day. And I couldn't I couldn't even imagine it that, that I'd had him in such a place in my brain. And in my career like I don't I didn't think that he would know me or anything, but it's almost like I didn't feel worthy for him to come over that David Letterman like this guy, your whole life is mysterious character who has this amazing show who's, who's truly a funny man in great broadcaster and a great host. But you had in, in this place, as a comic in your mind like you talked about him like he was almost a myth. Theological, creature like, you know, like no one really knew him or anything you just going to do is show, and that was what you worked for aid is coming to my house..
