At least, Miller says the new cereal she and her team created off limits has brand mascots, unlike any other dash is a high strung, high achieving female bunny in an eighties style power suit with sneakers. She's a K pop fan. A workaholic, and she says Dash has a lot of anxiety to deal with. So her cereal turns the milk to cold brew and has coffee and chocolate zombie is just the opposite. A lazy dude who looks like he just rolled out of bed to eat his mellow cereal. There's adapted Jin's Pond on Vanilla, so everything you need to mellow out. Miller, 29 year old food writer is all about breakfast. In fact, she wrote breakfast a cookbook, and she created the breakfast club walking tours of New York restaurants. Her latest venture off limits. Serial also seems to appeal to millennials. Miller's hoping they might relate to zombie who has a bit of Bart Simpson or dash more of Ah, Lisa Simpson. The whole brand is really run by these emotionally unstable and extreme cartoon characters. Dashing zombie are a far cry from the buff, confident cereal mascot Tony the Tiger. Cash is not the first female serial character in the early 19 fifties. Kellogg's Sugar Frosted Flakes was rep.

"I'm a wary sort. And so they're not a lot a lot of people who are in charge of me and I've crafted my life that way and I I've been a control freak. I've tried to be softer about that. And there's a great story about tell you quickly. I took tango lessons. I just love the image of you taking tangle of loved it now. That was so much at Iowa's by Tango Teacher for I'm not kidding. For the first two months he would drop his arms and stand back and say Yardley you have got to stop leading. The point was and it was a metaphor for my life. The dads doesn't work. If we both lead yeah somebody has to follow and what I realized when I got it was it was incredibly generous and gracious and sort of a relief. Leave to let somebody else in charge of YOU and so I learned to trust that so when I met Dan he was like that. He had his stillness about him. That was so in charge without being overbearing in any anyway he was. No I got this is my job. You're my job so God so it was so quietly attractive to me. It was so okay I just knew that I was in good hands. It's so good. I think that it makes a lot of sense. Eighty seven seven percent of this audience is female what you just said resonate so much with what we're really seeking in a partner but in our world today women do everything right. Women are working. They're taking care of everything and the roles of kind of gotten confusing a little bit. And it's It's a hard thing when love feels like the kind of thing I know for me. It's like if you wanna be loved earn. It produce be productive shell up and once in a while you want someone to come along ago. You're good you don't have to do anything. have to be impressive right now. You don't have to figure it out you don't have to be Lisa like you get to be off now now. You're off duty. What a gift for you? This was such a gift I had talked about having fun. It's so much fun every cabinet and you're awesome. Let's do it again then. Let me in person. Let's person Yardley Smith.

This really really incredibly honored end because she cares so much about you. She actually emailed me the day after we did the episode she said. Would you read this to the audience. Because there's something else that I really wish I would have said so. Now I'm going to read you an email that she sent to me. Kathy you asked me this question and I wanted to make sure that you read this to your listeners. Because I want them to hear this what I really want. Actors to. They audition is create balanced. Because I didn't and when my on camera career began to seriously falter after twelve exceptional years of extraordinary success. I had no idea we ought to do. I often say I was like a house without a foundation. Yes at that point I was on the simpsons but the half hour series was only two years old when things started a slowdown on drastically for me on camera and I was panicked. Because I didn't think voice over was gonNA sustain me creatively. Also in hindsight panicked came from me tying my identity identity demise success in profession. I am what I do. This is such a slippery slope. Oh my gosh. Because the moment you aren't able to do what you love at the level you're used to doing wing it you don't know who you are and you feel like a failure so what I really want to impart to actors. Who auditioned a lot in one? No one secret that they should implement. I want them to find find balance like your life depends on it because it does so after your audition reward yourself regardless of how you think your audition went in the room. Who Cares the point? Is You've likely it just made yourself incredibly vulnerable so you might need reassurance. He needs to be seen. That means meet a friend for coffee or lunch or walk. Go to a class. You love do anything to take take care of yourself that makes you feel whole and empowered do something anything that centers you make your audition part of your day until you this. Because I didn't know or do these things for many any years. I attach my worth to make compliments while I still had the simpsons. I didn't understand why on camera career was tanking when I had not taken my eye off the ball even for a second in so I didn't didn't know why I felt so defeated but had a massive identity crisis after Herman's head was cancelled and I could barely get work on camera after that. It took me eight years to pull up my socks and try a different path which is a whole other conversation we can have on the podcast but a great one really.

"Then. I moved moved to New York two weeks after doing that. Play in Ohio at that summer theater and I was auditioning for Mike Nichols on Broadway within six weeks of being in New York and I got that amazing and what I did actually. The job was understudying Cynthia. Nixon display called the real thing starring. Jeremy Irons Glenn. Close Peter Gallagher. Christine Baranowski the ski not normal. It was so but at the same time when my agent said you'RE GONNA under study on like I'm GonNa what. Oh No. Oh no no no no no. The train is coming off the tracks and not doing matt. I'm sorry what you are You'RE GONNA sit down and meet Wyatt and you're GonNa pay attention and take this job and starts use use of so so And The serendipity of of course I learned so much this was nine hundred ninety three and I was nineteen years old. I'd never had an acting lesson. I was girl from nowhere. And so we opened on Broadway in January of Nineteen eighty-four a four storey. Can't believe the vegetable and Cynthia was then pulled out of the real thing. In March of eighty four to go do Mike Nichols new Broadway. Play hurly-burly and I got to take over the part. This was a huge break and what I did not right now was under studies. Never take over part. It was massive and so I got to do it with the original cast until June when they changed the cast over and then I stayed on and so to be able to be on stage with Jeremy Irons and Christine Baranowski because there was only one scene was huge. Then in that time you know I did my first. Three movies one of which was The first one was heaven. Help us which start. Of course Mary Stuart Masterson was in Patrick Dempsey Donald Sutherland. And you know everybody than I did. The legend Billie Jean which has become a huge cult classic. Which of course bombed at the box office when it came out I was says barely outlawed enough to run the credits and thank God for cable like cable? Television had just sort of come on scene and they didn't have anything and so that movie. Iran Ad Nauseam twenty four hundred for. Yeah so anyway. Long story short things had really kicked off. I did maximum overdrive. The Stephen King movie that Steven King directed a all of these things at every turn heard I thought oh this is going to make me a star and of course it didn't because these movies didn't do well but I will say each. Each of those characters was what we call a breakout character in our business. You know so they continued to get noticed. And when I did the real thing on Broadway I got an agent because my New York agent didn't have an office so I came out to Los Angeles to do pilot season. I immediately got a pilot. Elit this pilot was terrible. Oh my God and even as ambitious as I was I remember thinking. I hope this pilot doesn't go because I'll shoot myself and thank God. It didn't go but I continued to get guest spot roles and Blah Blah and in the mix of that. I got an audition for for this funny little voiceover called the simpsons. Now I didn't have a voiceover agent. I never wanted to do voiceover. And and part of that was I had been teased. So relentlessly for my voice as a kid you know I have a funny high as -ly now every it has but now it's icon ick. Trust me when I was you know twelve when I was sixteen when I was twenty it was not a conic I had been so shamed for it. I never considered sittard an asset at also I will say in our business. Voiceover is kind of like the ugly stepchild of acting. And I don't consider voiceover requiring any less skill or any less emotion or any less a part of my heart and my soul than I do when I'm in front of the camera her on stage while it shows that show is so phenomenal but I to bought into that. Oh this doesn't really count. And so what is true is that I always always loved my character. What is also true is that here's a cautionary tale? Have a vision but do not attach Yup you division of your success that you can caught when you're five years old and let that be the one and only way that you're going to achieve success today nimble right and the irony is that as as nimble as I thought ought and considered myself to be I was actually incredibly rigid and it took me a long time to forgive myself for not achieving the really so very specific idea of what I thought my success my stardom my sort of trophies fees would be as an actor and realize maybe they would come in a different and yet more rewarding form. Yeah Yeah and that was when I was able to recognize that regardless of you know people still come at me and go. Oh so you just rescue voiceover right. And it's the just of course that is the qualifier that makes it seem like it's less than on and so you know you often say in your book ending your podcast. Speak to your tribe of two hundred. Don't try to satisfy two thousand. Who are sort sort of half their right? You don't really love and support and recognize what you do who don't really see you and and the people who really resonate with Lisa Simpson and with our show and the other things that I stand for nonprofits that I give to and things like that. Those are the people that I really am interested in engaging lists and the ones who say you just voice server right yeah it is amazing.

I just wanted to share something with you because we're still in January still the beginning of the year ear. I wanted to share something with you every single year on New Year's Eve I do this with my friends. We get together and we write down the year and we finish the sentence concerns starting with whatever year it is say twenty twenty was the most incredible year because we finish that sentence. As if we're saying it a year from now and I'm curious what you're gonNA write down love for you to do that and and right in your phone or write it with a pen and paper as if you're looking back next it's January on this year. Why would it what happened this year because you're looking ahead of this beautiful ground of potential and I said this before four but the difference between successful people in people who want success is that successful people? They have a lens through which they're looking at the world and they see possibility. Everywhere you're right you ever have that moment where you're walking with someone on a beautiful street and someone's complaining about the gum on the bottom of their shoe and you're going to look at the sky right. I want you to think about what you want for this year. And what. You'RE GONNA do to make sure that that happens at the end of the day. You guys from zero to seven. We were all in this like data state and everyone gets brainwashed. And we all get brainwashed brainwashed by the people around US still not by James Clear said who you spend time with matters more than anything else but at the end of the day fortune favors the brave Steve in. I've met people who have brilliant ideas and I've met people with mediocre ideas but it's always execution that wins right if it's a a mediocre idea with that person is really going for it and they're taking lots of at bats and they're taking action. They're gonNA win over the person who has a beautiful idea collecting dust in order for you to take action. What Angela Duckworth each us when she was here she said the thing that we need most is grit and the thing that actually ensures grit is is optimism? So I hope that listening to this podcast is starting to rewire some of those beliefs because beliefs are the things that dictate how much action we take. And then our actions decide. The results of our life in all really is powered by that super charger. which is what those beliefs are telling? Can you every single day and I believe in you and I believe I've three little girls. Were watching Moana the other day. And let's just give it up for characters that are female who are in these movies now as opposed to princesses who were waiting for a guy to come and save them. I'm just so happy that I have three little kids. And by the way Yardley Really Smith is here and I think Lisa Simpson is definitely the hero of that whole family so same point but with Moana right my middle daughter Loves Moana and I think about about that story and how that's all of us. That's that's our story to write like. She's been told her whole life Moana. Don't go out there. You won't make it. People have tried hide. You're GONNA get hurt. You'RE GONNA get killed you stay on this island and we all are being told that there's a ceiling and yet the horizon is calling. The Sky is calling in you know it and so in order for you to go and take that action. What has to happen? You need new glasses and maybe some new strategy and so.

"K rock is K R O Q, and you're listening to the Kevin and being show. We talk a lot Kevin about how we're really old and we've been doing this show for twenty nine years. Now, we've been doing the morning show here. Kevin is too long twenty nine years. We should be put down, and I was thinking about it. As we prepare to welcome. Our next guest to the studio that will we started this show on January second nineteen ninety the Simpsons was already on the air had already been through its Tracey Ullman show. Incarnation was already a hit show on FOX. Would we started twenty nine years ago, and it still on it? It's still one of the best shows on TV, and it's partly because of our guest Yardley Smith. Joy. Lisa Simpson on the Simpsons. Hey yardley. How are ya? I have to ref. Thank you for having. The you can't believe it either. Would you realize you've been doing the voice of Lisa Simpson since nineteen eighty seven right? That's true. I can't I'm plus she's eight and every time she has a birthday she eight. What what were your what was your expectation? I know in show business. Nobody ever expects anything to be the rest of their lives. But when you what do you remember about the first time, you got into the first few times, you got into Lisa where did you think? It would go nowhere. I plus the fact I had no interest in doing voiceover. I didn't have a voiceover agent. Is that right? How did you get the job Kathy job because I was doing a play in one of the little tiny black box theaters. We have here in town. Literally seventeen people saw that play and one of them a year later cast the Simpsons and said, I know who should play Lisa Simpson. Heading. So my say Yardley, let's go audition for this voice over this is not part of my plan for world domination. Okay. I'm not an actor who ever says. No. And I remember I went and read, and I I read for Bart and didn't get that. Obviously. I was just sounds too much like a girl. And then they said what about the sister? And I said all right never done voice over before. And I knew she was eight I know I sound like I'm about ten so younger. So I went up like Samson. And then I went back and read for Matt I remember he didn't laugh at my call back. And I thought oh, well, I didn't get that. You gave it a shot. Oh, and then you realize he doesn't laugh and that he's funny. He's I I always want him to be smiler than he is. Maybe he's smiling inside lovely as pie. But he doesn't show much show it on the out there a lot of people like that who never laugh. Funny people. I think so too. Did if even if what you're saying is funny. They they'll say the words, that's funny. Yes. Yeah. So is it finding your way right? You have to respond with tell your face. So obviously, it was a popular segment. Tracey Ullman show. But then were you stunned when you heard they wanted to make in a half hour program for FOX. Yes. I, you know, I actually often say that I I don't remember a lot of things in my life. Because I for a long time. I was just never present. I was always focused on what's not yet done. So when they said we're going to half hour. I also heard that this is the stupidest idea network has ever had nobody will ever watch it. You're out of your mice. What other people are saying? Yeah. And we were a midseason replacement January nineteen ninety actually is when the second. So our first show Eric Christmas eighty nine that was when we got Santa's little helper. The way I used to have a dog named satis over dead. I sure did did you. So we went to half hour. And I think everybody thought it was just, you know, a shower weren't any cartoons in prime talent that there hasn't been a cartoon on in primetime since the Flintstones. Wow. Yeah. Everybody at FOX is like whatever, dude. And so when he said, I want no studio or network notes. I want every episode to be scored by a forty piece orchestra FOX white because you'll only be on for thirteen. Isn't it shocking? How much animation is on the air. Now when there was none. When you started. I think it's it's you know, imitation is sincerest form of flattery. I don't really know if that's true. But anyhow, I think if you do it. Well, other people tried to do something else was this is the voice of Yardley Smith. Obviously Lisa Simpson on the Simpsons so much like my character. Was the was the show a hit out of the gate? Yes. Right. Like massive it was as though all of these fans who sort of pre internet. I mean, the internet existed, but not to the extent that it does now. And so I don't think anybody had any idea that these underground fans were already so enthusiastic about the show. And then it just hit. So you didn't think it would go anywhere. And then aired the first show, and it was an amazing response that had the also shock you like crazy shock. You don't know anything about anything? I'm good with that. Was there ever a time where there were serious talks about taking the Simpsons off the air or ending it at some point only in contract negotiations which have been, you know, they speak about them in the press, and they are notoriously contentious. But so far nobody's actually pulled the plug. But in terms of the success of the show, though, FOX wants to keep going forever. If they can. Yes. I mean, look it's all about the bottom line, dude. It's I guarantee you the day our show stops making money they will pull the plug in the middle of an app. That's why I always when I see the stories about oh, the cast is demanding this much stick it to FOX. Absolutely. Can you don't have to agree there? You're there your bosses, but. Good. Good advice alley. Hold me hostage. He told me show any do it. One of the things that the Simpsons has become most famous for is the unbelievable roster of guest stars. You've had over the years. There's you almost can't think of any big celebrity. Whether it's Mick Jagger or Stephen hawking who hasn't done the show. Do you ever beat those people? Yes. Sometimes less often now because technology is so good. You really can pick every anybody up where there's an outlet men electrical outlet. But if they'll come in and record with us, we love it. It's and it's so much better. You know, when you lady Gaga came she spent the entire day with us because we record altogether like an old radio play. Yeah. I always assumed after several years that you would be in separate studios like bean. So you all get together at the same time and do each episode. Yes, interesting. Yes. And it's great because I feel like and Jim Brooks did that because his his background is television sitcoms, of course, Oscar winning movies as well. But his point was well, it's a conversation like anything in any medium. Why wouldn't you all be together? Because the way you say something what he's obviously going to inform the way I respond makes perfect sense. Yeah. It would be like if we had recorded this interview separately and just giving you the questions in advance it sound completely different than us doing it live on the radio. That's well. How about now Paul McCartney is the reason that Lisa Simpson is vegetarian. That's a true story. Did you did you meet Paul when he didn't? How? I know our show runner was a man named David merkin time. And the only reason Linda and Paul McCartney did the show was they said if Lisa she has to stay of vegetarian for the rest of the series. And I can't remember what season that was. It was like ten or something, dude. We're now twenty years on writers have actually kept their word, but David merkin, actually, flew to their farm. I believe it's in Surrey or he used to be a studio and recorded, and I was not invited. His room. Episode about me. The course of your eating habits pretty much a everything. What other fun facts? Do you know about Lisa Simpson? Somebody who knows her better than anybody else on earth. I think the one thing I guess what people ask me what what I love most about her two things. One her sense of humor. You have to always remember that Lisa said has a great sense of humor. If you put her on a soapbox and just have her be the mouthpiece for whatever the issue of the day is she becomes pretty insufferable. If you forget that she just screams with laughter at itchy and scratchy right problem. The other thing I love about her is her resilience. I I you know to this day. I'm fifty four I'm like of could I just have a quarter of the resilience that Lisa Simpson. Has you know, who I wish I had been at eight certainly sure all of us, and I'm not I'm not this is not my quote, others have said, she's the moral center of the show to like, she's the beacon. She's the one who wants to do things right and fair. Yes. Yes. And people ask me, do you feel a lot of responsibility. And I'm like, you know, I don't think it's easy to to land on the right? I don't think it's difficult to land on the right side of history. The Simpsons is a show you should check out. If you haven't heard that new Yardley it it's been a delight delight so.

"I can't believe this is my life is amazing. That sounds amazing. And you're doing some really amazing work 'cause outside of the Simpsons. You're also the co founder of paper clip LTD. Can you tell us a little bit about that work Mizan and its mission? Yeah. So paper clip limited is a production. And development company that I founded with my business partner of about eight years called Nate called we call him. Ben, gordon. Well, 'cause you know, that's his name. He's a he's a terrific partner. We complementing complimentary other. So well and really the company was formed because I stopped getting I really have stopped getting a lot of on camera work before. I did Lisa Simpson. Even in the early years of the Simpsons used to do a lot of on camera work. Lot of guest stars. I did a bunch of movies. And then it all started to dry up. And I don't know why I think it was sort of a confluence of many things, I think the business was changing. I also think it's obviously it's an ongoing conversation and hopefully getting better, but it's always harder for women as we get older to get role. So, but I am really late to the party Jamie like people who realize oh shit. I'm not getting as much on camera work as I like probably within a couple of years, go out and former production company and create were himselves. I one of the downsides. I would say of being. So successful right out of the gate, and especially young age. You know, I didn't get into college went right from high school to working. I was seventeen years old. And I think I handled it well, but the downside was is that it didn't teach me to build a foundation. So in retrospect, I liken it to sort of being like a house without a foundation. So when things started to to go differently what I stopped getting additions like rarely did anybody offer me apart, by the way. And that wasn't the thing. I was happy to have an audition go to the dishes and actually get the job. But if you don't you aren't presented with the opportunities. Then I honestly didn't know what to do. And I had a good agent, but he couldn't fix it either. And because I had never had to struggle. I honestly had no idea what to do. And it took me about eight years, which is a really long time to kind of pull up my socks ago. Okay. I guess I'm going to have to be this multi hyphen it that I never thought I would be that. I actually never spire to be. I was always happy just to be an actress, I didn't need to be a producer. It didn't to directed. In wanna ride? I was like, I'm good. This is great door. What I'm doing? So I it took me a long time to form this company. But now what I love and this ties back to the Simpsons is that the best part about that job is that it's a Ford me a tremendous amount of choice. And so it's given me an enormous amount of freedom, which is truly I think the greatest luxury in life to be able to choose things. I wanna. I do and say note of the things I don't wanna do. So it paper clip because of the Simpsons we have an actual budget. So if somebody brings us a script, and we love it. We can actually move on it. We don't have to wait for five other people who have the financing to say, yes. And while we seek co-financing in the projects that cost a lot of dough likely co-finance to film called all square, which is out sater's. Now also available on I tunes. Starring Michael Kellyanne, Pamela Adlon. We have another thriller coming out next year called alone that was co-financed as well. But we just started pre production on film that were shooting down in bat. Rooch that we financed alone. And we wouldn't be able to do that without the Simpsons. And really that's the mandate of the company. We wanna take a projects in their earliest stages in across all mediums and develop them the black girl nerds podcast will be back in..

"My name is Jamie. And I'm your host really excited about this episode. You guys I'm a huge fan. A decades long fan of this guests that we're going to talk to Yardley Smith is the voice of Lisa Simpson who has been around since nineteen eighty nine and this past a temper series celebrated its thirtieth anniversary and Yardley also co hosts a true crime podcast called small town Dick's, and she's a co founder of paper clip LTD. And we're going to talk about all of that. On today's episode Yardley. Thank you so much for coming on our show. Thank you for having me. It's really honor. Absolutely. I again, I'm just geeking out over the fact that I'm talking to Lisa Simpson right now. And we sound so much like this is made this system senate's really not that far apart. Lisa. Lisa was my muse growing up, and she's made such an impact to fans everywhere. And I wanted to know after doing this for so many decades now has Lisa Simpson impact at EU cornet Lutely, I mean lease is. She's certainly who I wish I had been at eight she's often who I wish I were at fifty four, you know, she is so incredibly resilient and. And kind and compassionate and really tries to see both sides of every argument. I mean, she's I feel like she's the best of all of us, even when she gets petty and jealous I picked those flaws make her even more relatable. I honestly feel as though even if I didn't give her voice that I he's one of the best fully formed female characters created in any medium in our time. You know agree with that completely. Yeah. Absolutely. Do you feel that sometimes 'cause everybody is so attached to this character of Lisa Simpson? Defillo that sometimes people try to box in who she is whether she's someone that shares conservative, ideals or liberal, ideals or a feminist. I mean, she's at an age where she herself may not entirely know what those things are. Yeah. I think as a culture we have a tendency to try to box people into slap a label on 'em go could that's done. I figured that out and move onto the next thing. I I would be wary of doing that with Lisa Simpson. I think that she is truly so multifaceted. And as I said, you know, even when she slips up at his not as compassionate and inclusive and savvy as she is most of the time, I what I love about her is that she's willing to admit her fault. And then try to learn from them, you know, we should we should all be. So so adept so adaptable. Do you? I mean after all this time, you pretty much own the character. Do you provide a lot of insight to each of the episodes that we see each week of how her character's developed? No, it's not no, it's not really not really a democracy like that. The riders. Although, of course, I would be welcome in the writer's room. Everybody's more or less stays in their lane. I will say though that if Lisa Simpson if they have her saying something that I don't think she would say, or if a character is really really mean to her, and she doesn't have any. She doesn't have a a response to that that I feel is true to the character. I always always speak up. I really do feel like a have an obligation to stick up for my girl. I truly I love her so much and oddly I feel that she exists quite separately. For me. It's it's different than doing on camera in that regard. Lisa Simpson is such a unique collaboration with literally each part, contributing thirty three in third percent of her entire being..

"So it doesn't matter just, you know, whatever it wasn't well thought out. Whereas Nancy. 'cause she read for Lisa too, and but she already knew she wanted to play Bart. She said that the teachers were sort of drawn. Yeah, we're you drawn to Lisa similar way or was it just like this didn't really have a personality in those shorts that we did on the Tracey Ullman show. She really was just a brat. We both brats man Bart, and he was really a foil for him. He was the star of those shorts, and I am a younger sisters I that that's no problem. So it wasn't until we went to half hour. James l. Brooks, our executive producer said, I want Lisa Simpson to be a genius, and I want her to play the saxophone. And that's when Lisa really started to become a person. And you know, she, I feel like. She's quite separate from me. I feel like she exists holy in her own right, and it's not unlike knowing somebody most of your life like you would know a really good friend. And when that show is over, it will be like my best friend moved away and is never coming back. That's really so it will be really sad. I Todd will be in a fetal position on the bathroom floor. Perhaps for weeks, please send food. But one thing that's sort of interesting about that is she is. I mean, she's a very mature eight-year-old, but she's forever eight and like. Is soon that you, I don't know, you know, maybe maybe we're gonna find out. You don't. A portrait in my attic. I feel like it's not working as well. I was, I guess, how has your relationship to playing a kid like changed over the years? You know, it's been incredibly cathartic again at another unexpected byproduct of something that I've done in my life. It's also true that Lisa Simpson is the catharsis for all of our writers who were super smart geniuses who had no idea where they fit in when they were kids. And so they work out all of their childhood angst with Lisa Simpson for me. I feel like Lisa has a resilience that I really struggled to master as a child. She comes to it so easily. She bounces back much more quickly than I did. I was just really I was an anxious kid and I didn't have sort of clinical anxiety, but I worried all the time. I'm still a terrible worrier, and I wanted to be good at everything. And I was a perfectionist, which is by the way for any young listeners that is zero sum game, you will never win. Don't even go down that road trying. But I, you know, and I do too where I set the bar, I think sometimes unreasonably high. But now I sort of chuckle at it. Let's pretty fantastic. Let's see if we could touch that bar. And I say now, for instance that the rejection that we get in show business, it's not that it doesn't affect me any. More just recover from it more quickly. So I'm I'm more likely Simpson now than I certainly was when I was eight. I often said that I wish I had been likely Simpson when I was eight. I think. I mean, don't we all don't y'all been of reason for my entire community here? So that would have been great. I know rats. So you mentioned you mentioned that you were not a train voice actor in the way that some of the others in the cast are. What have you learned about voice acting from doing this for as long as you have? It's not that different from acting in front of the camera. I don't think there's any less emotion somehow, people think like, oh, you know, I'm a celebrity and I'm newness feature film, slumming it. And you're like, really? I actually don't think of it that way..

"What I do know is that Lisa Simpson was my number of the Simpson family. The one that I felt the strongest kinship with which is weird because again, I'd never seen it. I didn't know what her voice sounded like. I didn't know anything like that. I just knew that she was roughly the same age as me when the show debuted and that she played the saxophone. The also played and that she no felt sort of out of place as I frequently did. And of course, that's like the archetype of the character. I think that everybody who sort of fish tortured brooding writer from very young age identifies with Lisa Simpson by. That's why I'm excited that this week on the show, we have early Smith. She's the voice of Lisa Simpson. And of course, we talked about Lisa, but we also talked about her true crime podcast, small town Dick's, which is a lot of fun. And we talked about like true crime in general. What draws her to it? What she thinks other people to it. And if you've ever wanted to hear. The voice of Lisa Simpson describing like horrific, bloody things, my friends, this is the episode for you. We're not just going to talk about crime. We're gonna talk about Simpson's. We're gonna talk about her other projects and they're gonna just talk about being one of the most famous people on earth and yet, no, not necessarily being one of the most famous people on earth the same time. It's a lot of fun if you're Simpsons fan or just a person who knows what the Simpsons look like, which is everybody on earth, including eight year old me stick around. You can have a good time. My guest today is Yardley Smith. You may know her as the voice of Lisa Simpson. You also might know her from her podcast town Dick's which she hosts with zippy Smith. Did I get that with zippy Alan? I knew it was a common last. Zubi Allen Yardley, welcome to the program. Thank you so much. So small index is a true crime thing. There's, you know, there's a lot of interest in true crime, and I'd like to ask you where your interest comes from, but then also maybe speculate as to like why we, as a culture seemed like really into this perpetually. It's not like a new thing. We've been doing this for fifty years. You know, true. I think on a broader scale, I think as healing beings, we love heroes. We really want the good guys to win for the most part. A lot of our movies are predicated on that superhero movies couldn't be bigger than they are right now. You know, for me personally, and I think this actually plays in perhaps to the global interest in true crime is every crime is about a breach of trust your. And so I was a really good kid. And I never broken rules. I was very Lisa Simpson. Like I was gonna, say, not nearly as smart, but definitely as well behaved and. I'm sort of at this later point my life. Certainly not when I was sort of eight or nine, but I was fascinated by the kids who had the balls to play hooky. And then you take that to the obvious extreme, you know, to murder or rape or any of the other horrific things that people do to each other. And I think there's a a great fascination about what is it about those people who do those things that leads them from. I wish I could. You know, I've been done wrong. I wanna hurt the person who did that to me. There's a great distance between that thought on the actual action. Not always, and those are the people I think who end up on the news? Do you use your well behaved child? I was also a well behaved child to you. Recognize those impulses within yourself, like you recognize that there there because I have very rarely in my life felt that like, oh, I could do something really terrible right now if I didn't have you know myself holding. Me back, you know? Yes. I think I'd never had the thought that I could do something terrible to somebody else. But I think when the very core level of trust is broken society can't function without some level of trust, and there is a really interesting article about a month ago or a couple months ago in the Wall Street Journal or New York Times or something..

"A little bit now i can only imagine you've been asked a lot of these questions a million times so you have every right to pass or deflect it to something rather talk about but i always try to pride myself in finding questions that are different in some way but i don't know about this line it is a tough one just all been ass i can imagine and how many years is it now it's just started recording season thirty good lower no years we literally have writers who grew up watching the show who thought might dream job will be to ride on the simpsons but they won't still be on by the time i'm old enough and like oh yes do you have any that were born after it debuted yeah i believe so yes i mean there are people in that room who work on the show who have no recollection of a world without simpson that's extrordinary zand i mean thirty years thirty two relief you count the tracey ullman show that's old enough to have been born when the simpsons started or even slightly after a now to have your own children who are walking and talking and watching the simpsons that's that's bananas it is an institution like saturday night live where a long involved would have been raised on it completely absolutely yeah god so you if this is true additionally originally read for the role of bart that's true and nancy cartwright read for lisa is that right yes interesting i think it was never well two things happened so i did a play here in los angeles at the fountain theatre called living on salvation street that was directed by dorothy lyman who used to be on mama's family do you remember mama in fact i see that this kiki she was a juvenile delinquent i did i three episodes and because of doing that tv show when this play came around dorothy lyman cast me as the lead and i played this girl named wilma who wanted to join the army and saying l was presley songs so nothing likely simpson and about i would say like seventeen people saw that play and one of those people are year later was casting the simpsons and she says that she when the role of lisa simpson came up she said i know exactly who should play lisa simpson and it was me it wasn't nancy so the fact that i did read for bart and nancy read for lisa i think it was more of a well let's they always have women do the voices of young boys because their voices don't change obviously right so i don't think it was so specific as we're just gonna throw a lot of spaghetti at the wall and whoever is better for one and then for another and then of course i'm sure they had editions with tons of other people that's who we will cast but i did read for bar but i don't even think it lasted a whole scene interesting yeah 'cause i just sound so much like a girl always and over the years do you struggle to keep it fresh for yourself do you find that the voice of all because i look back at the tracey ullman versions in the early seasons especially with homer i mean it's it's started with oh yeah okay a lot of people think actually that whoever did home or on the tracey ullman show it was then a different actor who did it when we went to half hour but it's the same as dan castellaneta and dan orig when we drew in the bumpers as we call them on the tracey ullman show agree told the whole story in one minute right three twenty seconds segments something to that effect before the commercial break and dan fashioned homers voice after walter matthau and when we went to half hour he couldn't sustain it technically like vocally he couldn't sustain it so he had to alter it and that's why homer sounds so different yeah and i think when i first started doing lisa simpson i really didn't do anything i mean i sound a sound i i think probably now about now i probably like him about fourteen but back then i think i probably started let goes eleven

"Ask last week ted cruz said this about lisa simpson i think the democrats are the party of lisa simpson and republicans are happily the party of homer and bark and maggie and march so yardley what do you think about that you know first of all i was surprised that the guy he's ted cruz is talking at two at as he pack says before that um worst ted cruz says lisa system as the party of the democrats that ted cruz is a huge fan of the show because i feel like if he was really a fan of the shell he wouldn't say he wouldn't include at least march maggie as being republicans because that seems ridiculous to me at least not republicans who aren't completely inclusive they would ask to lead moderate when obligations and they don't necessarily considered ted cruz a moderate republican um but what really struck me about that comment when i heard it because i actually i hadn't seen it and then of course you know my text messages blew off and the twitter feed blew up like yardley yardley what are you going to say about this and um i watched the clip and i think they take that was the most striking to me is that although he was sort of you sort of tried to pass it off as a joke ted cruz said that leeson since it is the party of democrats with so much disdain and so that was a bad thing and i thought this is absolutely indicative of the way the government is not functioning at the moment that there doesn't seem to be any um didn't seem to be a lot of reaching across the aisle and i'm not saying that uh it's just how the republican side it certainly the dumbest democrats have uh dug their heels in but i do feel that because the republicans are the party of power across the board uh the.

"Um i speak at that trying to your point there were most his the shows where reflecting the family that was much more pristine than what to simpson's was about to reveal and so and you either loved it or you hater you either wanted to buy into the we need to be more like the bait brady bunch or you were willing to go oh crap awesome look at that there's a family just like ours and maybe even a little bit worse i think we're doing okay you know um so it's great i you know always to um have a mirror held up in a wider sense i think is oh is incredibly important and valuable i'd like you were saying the beginning of the interview about girls not seeing a lot of um flawed but still ambitions and uh successful but not outrageously not not unrealistically so not having a lot of role models like that on television you often here um people of color saying i didn't hear anybody like me in movies and television and hopefully that conversation is changing now but you know as a white woman with blue eyes grew up in the middle class family in the united states i have no idea what that's like i certainly noted knew what it was like as a girl not too many role models but by if there were girls on film and television they were probably white so at least i had one thing that i could identify with right and um imagine growing up you know i can't obviously imagine growing up and somebody who doesn't see anybody who looks like that and sounds like them acts like them lives like them anywhere in entertainment which is somehow supposed to reflect all of our lives yeah you kind of grow up feeling like your own experiences just aren't validated because they're not seen and you you you know the studies have been very clear that it's so important to have your own experiences reflected back at you to have that agency in that grounding and to feel like you are you know part of the conversation yeah so let's switch gears really quickly earlier this week there is a really point yet at daily only fair piece it just came out called why lisa simpson matters and if folks haven't read it they should totally read it it's very very poignant but one of the things i found so great.

"Guys just he's so walls and walls of of trophies uh from our industry and um so he's obviously incredibly well regarded and at that time i also have heard that twentieth century fox's like sure give the guy with every wants shows and get eleven more than thirteen halfhour episode pocket who cares and then of course we it so they were still on and so by that um you know did a fine print on his contract that says no studio network no it's still exist so um and the other one of the other things he did actually which was cool with looms eibar was he said he wanted the music for the show to be scored by a live orchestra so every week to forty peace orchestra scores and the citizens music there's nothing to hand about it and it's it's pretty remarkable um that never happened um so by to that point the um we have all of most of the riders in that room are then and the other thing i've heard and have actually recently heard confirmed that lisa simpson represents all of those guys she they're all three go as well so if you consider that all of these male riders and maybe although i feel like this he level writers and thinking of wine in particular caroline amina who's the near a really long time at chefs for nominal writer and she's an incredible woman and and i would say like she has such a strong sense of herself so lazy this theory doesn't apply to her but what i was going to say is all these men when they were in school high school and then they went to all these i really colleges and um i think when you're incredibly academically gifted as they were it sets you apart from your pure group in fact if your gifted at anything whether it's sports for me it listen school drama um whatever.
