"The inspiration for Holly golightly, the heroine of Truman Capote's breakfast at Tiffany's. She collected many famous friends through her wit and magnetic charm. Then she harnessed her power as a socialite to raise funds to fight the aids epidemic in the 1980s. Meet marguerite lippmann. Marguerite was born marguerite lambkin on May 4th, 1930 in Monroe, Louisiana. Her father was a prominent lawyer and her mother was a homemaker. Family was wealthy and well established and lived on what had been one of the largest plantations in the area. Marguerite was a theatrical child, and she and her elder brother speed staged plays every Saturday. With marguerite as the leading lady. These amateur productions led to adult aspirations in Hollywood. Speed became a playwright and novelist and got a contract to write a film under producer Jerry wald. He moved to Los Angeles and marguerite tagged along. When Jerry wald met marguerite, he thought she was the spitting image of a young Susan Hayward. He wanted to make her into the next big starlet. But first, he had to get rid of her southern drawl. Marguerite trained with vocal coach luster Luther. But even after trying unusual methods, like speaking with stones in her mouth, she still couldn't drop her accent. Marguerite explained if you were to say, how are you to me? I'd have to get my mouth in a certain position and do preliminary things. I mean, you'd be long gone before I said, I'm very well. Thank you. Marguerite gave up on trying to get in front of the cameras. But if she couldn't squash her country twang, she could at least teach movie stars to sound like her. She worked as a vocal coach on over a dozen films, most famously helping Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman speak like southerners in the 1958 film cat on a hot tin roof. I don't want to hear about it. Why won't you face the truth just once about skipper about me about yourself? While she lived and worked in Los Angeles, marguerite became quite the social butterfly, meeting and keeping countless Hollywood connections. Her circle included the painter David Hockney, writer Gore Vidal, playwright, Tennessee Williams, and of course Truman Capote. Marguerite bonded with the queer community in a time when not everyone was so welcoming. The poet Stephen spender described her as an ally against the gossiping classes of Hollywood. Marguerite also attracted many passionate suitors during her California years. One hit in her bushes and left her expensive cooking pots as gifts in her hallway. Another, composed of 50 page love letter, complete with a marriage proposal. Marguerite later said she didn't read past the second page. Marguerite did find love briefly with screenwriter Harry Brown. They got married in 1952, but Harry, who was a rumored alcoholic, became abusive. Marguerite later recalled, I told Harry I was going out to buy some lamb chops and never went back. After her divorce with Harry, marguerite married again in 1959. This time to actor Rory. That union also ended in divorce. By now she was living in New York City and working at glamour magazine. In her dear daisy column, she answered letters from women desperate for romance advice. Marguerite provided what she called teddy bear tricks to help girls catch and keep a man's interest. Often by irritating them. In one column she advised, don't put his flowers in a vase, leave them in the sink. In 1963, marguerite met Mark litman, a British lawyer, while he was visiting Manhattan. She later recalled, I couldn't use any teddy bear tricks because he knew I was daisy. But something worked. The couple got married in 1965 and settled in London. In her new country, marguerite maintained her sociable nature, hosting eccentric luncheons and dinner parties for her many friends. Andy Warhol described one such affair at the London townhouse in his diaries, saying marguerite invented something great for dessert, chocolate soup. Its orange juice and Grand Marnier and chocolate hot. In the mid to late 1980s, marguerite harnessed her power as a socialite to raise funds to fight the out of control aids epidemic. She was friends with actor Rock Hudson and helped nurse him as he was dying of aids in 1985. In 1986, she wrote to 300 friends to ask each of them to contribute a hundred pounds to become founding members of the aids charitable trust. In marguerite's words, no one said no. From there, she led larger fundraising campaigns wrangling artist friends to donate their work for auction. She also enlisted the help of Princess Diana, who donated her enviable wardrobe to the cause. That act alone raised over $3 million. Marguerite later spoke of her conversation with Princess Diana. She said, I have a wonderful idea. I'm going to give you all of my dresses. Marguerite added, I didn't quite know what that meant. I thought, oh God, do I address that badly? After 11 years of raising funds, marguerite decided to dissolve the aids charitable trust and combine efforts with other existing groups. She eventually became a director of the board at the Elton John aids foundation. Marguerite died on October 16th, 2020 in her home in London. She was 90 years old.

"Fascinating story Jeff from San Francisco Hey Jeff what's on your mind today Yeah I just want to comment about these truckers thing in Canada I think that's good example of what we should be doing Get a movement of the union people going in the truckers could help support strikes with Amazon It Starbucks and teachers union it should be or in stickers say I only buy union coffee and I think it's an example of people unite together with unions And well here's the problem Jeff that did not unite people The vast majority of Canadians are disgusted by those truckers Their demand was basically throw out Trudeau and stop the vaccine mandates and Trudeau and the vaccine mandates are very popular in Canada But I get what you're saying You know strikes are powerful things I would argue that this wasn't a strike It was just a very very tiny number of people and two of them are now in jail In fact the second I just got the story here Chris barber and Tamara licked were arrested yesterday And both are still in police custody Barber is a trucker and his personal bank account has been frozen And licked is the so called official spokesperson And she's the one who tried to raise all that money and go fund me And she's a secessionist She wants Alberta to leave Canada So it's kind of fringe stuff here Chris Excuse me Well yeah I understand I'm just talking about the general idea Of movements And the only we had power back remember before Bill Clinton started taking money from bankers we used to get money from unions And that's the only way it's going to work is if we start getting out that 20 30 40% of people in some form of union and start buying the politicians back And Reagan took a bite out of it You know he killed the unions in the 1980s We went from a third of America being unionized when he came into office to about 10% of America being unionized by the end of the Reagan Bush 12 years And now it's down below 6% It's just breathtaking Jeff thank you Thanks for the call and your thoughts Anna and Tustin California Hey I know what's on your mind today Good morning Tom how are you Good Well you were speaking earlier if you called back about Steve Bannon encouraging people to run for local offices and some of those physicians are key in counting the votes So I just wanted to speak to that And mentioned to your audience that there's an organization called a run for something and the website is run for something dot net and the director is Amanda littman She was recently on MSNBC being interviewed by Alex Wagner It's a terrific organization And what they do is they find and promote and support young progressives running for local offices And so we need to get behind them If you are a young progressive and you can see yourself in a position where you would have a lot of power and upholding democracy that would be terrific If you're not a young progressive you can go to the website and donate and support them in any way that you can And anyway it's a grassroots effort to undermine democracy that Steve Bannon is promoting So we need to really be aware of that Thank you for that My pleasure Thanks for the thanks for flagging that Anna It's like a great organization And I missed that segment on Alexander Yeah She was great She's really professional She's really smart I believe she was some kind of a media.

"Behind my question Has there been any unfair question do you counsel No your honor Joining me is Leah littman a professor at the University of Michigan law school Leo this case went to the Supreme Court twice explain why it's back at the 5th circuit So what ended up happening is the United States Supreme Court decided the issues in the case as the parties were then arguing them And what the Texas state officials were arguing at the time was that the law clearly did not give any of them any enforcement authority and therefore they could not be sued What the United States Supreme Court said is we United States Supreme Court think that at least these state licensing officials have the authority discipline doctors and nurses who perform abortions and violation of FBA because those licensing officials have that enforcement authority they can be sued But that conclusion rests on an interpretation of state law And the United States Supreme Court is not the final arbiter over the meaning of state laws That job falls to the state courts And so when the United States Supreme Court sent the case back now to the 5th circuit the Texans officials filed a motion saying we would like you court to basically ask the taxes Supreme Court about whether the United States Supreme Court interpretation of the state law was correct And you have the Supreme Court need to tell us whether these licensing officials actually do have the authority discipline doctors and nurses who perform abortions and violations of FDA This was a pretty contentious hearing some of the judges appeared to be sort of sparring with each other What was the main contention There were a few different contentions floating around in the argument One was just the propriety of allowing the Texas officials to request certification to the Texas Supreme Court at this late stage in the case The Texas officials had never before asked any core including the United States Supreme Court to certify a question to the Texas Supreme Court And so one of the Court of Appeals judges judge Higgins said noted that there was never any case where a court had certified a question to a state Supreme Court after the state officials had lost before the United States Supreme Court or another appellate court And so the fact that this looks like a late stage request in order to allow the states continue to enforce this law was one of the point of disagreement between the judges in the oral argument The second point of disagreement was a matter of timing that is how urgent it was for the United States Court of Appeals to act on this case or to further delay it by certifying questions to the Texas Supreme Court One of the Court of Appeals judges judge Edith Jones asked whether they the Court of Appeals might just hold on to the case until the end of June because there was a chance that the Supreme Court might overrule roe versus wade which would allow Texas to prohibit abortions more than 6 weeks after a person's last period So in that light it feels like and it looks like at least one of the judges as an unfair dilatory tactic The law is currently in effect and is Zola fiing people's ability to exercise what is currently a constitutional right but the other judges seem to want to hold on to the case and further delay as resolution until they know whether the Supreme Court is going to reaffirm or overrule row And how unusual is it to have one judge accuse another of not being impartial during the oral arguments There were definitely several oddities about the oral argument It's clear that there are strong feelings on both sides about the legal arguments and also how the courts are handling this case judge higginson and the dissenting opinion when the U.S. court appeals optic federal oral argument on the motion to certify invited the United States to intervene in the lawsuit and participate as in a mucus because he felt that the courts and the states were slow walking this challenge and in the process nullifying people's ability to exercise their constitutional right On the other hand you have two Republican appointed judges on the course of appeals kind of making jokes at the oral argument suggesting the Supreme Court's office case wrong And so there are definitely strongly held views on both sides which means for a quite casby oral argument Thanks Leah That's professor Leo lit of the University of Michigan law school Coming up the Netflix series Tiger king being sued over movie clips This is Bloomberg Introducing venture.

Who was called away last minute but today we have a very serious topic. The israel's declaration of several ngos non government organizations to be terrorist groups and a bit of the flop that came because of that and to help. Help us understand that story. we have a special guest. Matt would you please introduce our guest. I would love to thank you michael this morning. We're joined by its irony. It's is the director of communications in ngo monitor jerusalem-based nonprofit research institute until recently he was a direct is research desk in the institute and his areas of expertise of social movements and civil society ngos rolling conflict and aren't funding in antisemitism.

So first of all. Can you explain to me what it means this term. Ngo in your in your organization. Ngo monitor non-government government organization are at most organizations non-governmental organizations. Why why what does that title mean. Yes oh ngo. Nongovernmental organization is a is a platform. That's being used a for civilians to get around and promote social or political issue that they think that should be promoted. There are endless forms of ngos endless methods to create an gio. But ngos have something very spatial that. Let's say official institutions that we have a certain country. Let's say the us or israel don't have which is a certain kind of power that derived from there in a from the fact they are non governmental it a civilian. That's include the money.

"Npr. This is one a. I'm jen white in washington. We start with big news from texas legislation that bans abortions after about six weeks is now the law of the land in texas. It effectively ends roe v wade protections in the state. The us supreme court chose not to act on an emergency request to stop the law from taking effect at midnight. This new law passed in may bans own abortions in the state after about six weeks of pregnancy. That's while before many people even know they are pregnant. How the law will work. Is the reason why. We've asked back leah. Littman she's co host of the podcast. Strict scrutiny and assistant professor at the university of michigan. Law school leah. Welcome back. Thanks for having so this. Texas law is known as s b eight. What does it do in. Who does it impact. The law authorizes anyone literally anyone in texas to sue an abortion provider who perform abortion on a women who is more than six weeks pregnant. It also allows anyone in the state to sue anyone who helps or assists a woman in obtaining an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy by exposing abortion providers as well as people who assist women and obtaining abortions to thousands of dollars in liability the law effectively prohibits abortions after six weeks pregnancy in texas abortion providers have already stopped scheduling the procedure. Now that the law is in effect so the law effects every single person in texas because ineffectively prevents people from getting abortions. What role could supreme court still play here. So what ended up happening is the lower federal courts did not enjoy the law that has prevented from being enforced before it went into effect and so the abortion providers asked the us supreme court for an emergency injunction that would prevent the law from being enforced. The supreme court has not acted on that request which allowed the law to go into effect. It could at some later date or later point. Issue an emergency injunction and prevent the law from being enforced. But we don't know how long that might take. And in the interim abortion is not going to be available people will not be able to schedule abortions and clinics might close given that they can't actually perform the procedure and so depending on how long supreme court or some other court takes to prevent this law from being enforced it might end up shuddering permanently many clinics in texas. How is this bill different from the other. So-called heartbeat bills have been passed in other states and then blocked by the courts. The law is different. Because it authorizes private individuals everyday citizens literally anyone to bring a lawsuit for thousands of dollars in damages against abortion providers other laws by contrast allowed the state to criminally prosecute abortion providers who perform abortions that difference in the law. Who would actually enforce it. Created some procedural uncertainties about how the providers could sue to prevent the law from being enforced and those procedural uncertainties effectively bogged down the litigation concerning the law and delayed it enough that the law is now in effect. Selena help us understand. If the onus is on an individual to sue a clinic or an individual what gives that person the legal standing to take action over a medical decision taken by someone. They don't even know so if a person is trying to sue in federal court. They have to demonstrate what is called an injury. The standing idea you referred to is plaintiffs in order to sue in federal court have to show that they have standing in order to have standing. You need to be injured but they those same rules. Don't necessarily apply in state courts and so texas has authorized people who haven't experienced any injury whatsoever to sue in state court to again seek thousands of dollars worth of damages from abortion providers people who assist women and obtaining abortions. So you're right. These people aren't injured. You're right that. If they tried to sue in federal court they wouldn't have sanding but texas recognizing that decided to authorize these lawsuits to go forward in state courts. Does this new law bump up against medical privacy laws. of course. I mean undercurrent precedent. This law is obviously unconstitutional. People have a constitutional right to make medical decisions to seek advice of doctors that includes the right to decide to end a pregnancy before viability. Again this law imposes thousands of dollars worth of damages on people who assist women in exercising their constitutional rights. That is unconstitutional. The problem is no court at this. Point has even decided whether the law is constitutional or not instead. They've allowed it to take effect because of the procedural uncertainties surrounding who can be sued and when they can be sued in order to prevent the law from going into effect. And so the law definitely intrudes on constitutional rights under current president but by allowing the law go into effect. The courts have effectively allowed the state to overrule roe. Without the course issuing a decision saying that. Walk us through. What a case like. This could look like in texas because in hearing fleshed out description of how the law would work. How could a private citizen know for certain or be able to prove in court that a person access and abortion that a provider provided that abortion win. These medical records theoretically shouldn't be available to them because of privacy issues so anti-abortion advocates are already protesting and maintaining a presence outside of clinics on. They have been soliciting input via websites and other tactics in order to collect information about the people who appear at abortion clinics and seeking information. That would help them. Identify who those people are identified the employees at the clinic at the time so they will know who to so they have been organizing ever since this law was passed in may to allow them to acquire the information to identify patients to identify doctors to identify clinics to identify nurses to allow them to sue these people for thousands of dollars worth of damages. One abortion clinic was reporting on twitter the night before the law went into effect that they had people at that time outside of their clinic shining. Flashlights in again trying to figure out who they could sue wants. The law went into effect. Leah were you surprised. The supreme court didn't intervene. I harbored no illusions. That this supreme court would actually protect constitutional access and the constitutional right to an abortion. However i at least thought that when they effectively overruled or explicitly overruled row they would issue an opinion that gave some reasons and explain their decision. I didn't think they would overrule roe by saying and doing nothing at all. And that is quite striking. And i think very troubling just from the perspective of accountability and fair process. So what is the legal path ahead from here. The legal path ahead is essentially a game of wait and see wait and see if the supreme court issues an emergency injunction blocking the texas law. Wait and see if the very conservative. Us court of appeals for the fifth circuit will allow the trial court to consider whether to enjoy the law and prevent its enforcement so it is just a game of waiting and while we are waiting. Abortion access has ended in texas. That's leah littman. She's co host of the.

We're gonna talk about their latest book, the Entrepreneurs faces We get to find out which entrepreneur archetype are you so don't go away on this week's Tech news. First up a crazy story, eh? Senate clear sheriff they've arrested an apple security manager for trying to sell concealed carry permits. For iPad donations. And so as the story goes, it's about $70,000 worth of my pounds were promised to send a clear service apartment. If for Apple employees could get concealed carry permits for their weapons now This transaction actually never went down because, according to the sheriff's department, the attorney, the district attorney actually started investigation. The the person arrested has been in denial that any of this is true. I'm sure this is just a crazy story of trying to get C. CW's for ipads. Another Apple News, Apple announced that they were going to lower their commissions for developers. This is significant because up until now, since the APP store started, Apple takes about a 30% cut anything that goes through their app. So you put on put on angry birds You put on something else. I always take a 30% cut compared to Google. When we started, they put out a 15% cut. Apples now reduced that commission the 15% for publishers who make under a million dollars. It's going to be interesting to see how that drives further adoption. Of Apple products..

Actually, it's six spot 80 52 a much stronger dollar right now you're caught up on markets. Back to balance of power. And David Westin. Thanks So much dog prisoner. The Supreme Court has just come off one of its most consequential terms in recent years, and it already has some major cases to decide in the term that begins just two weeks from today to explain what the absence of justice Ginsburg could mean. My colleague, June Grasso is here and we welcome together, Professor Leah Littman. Of the University of Michigan Law School. Professor Littman specializes in constitutional law, and she herself worked at the court as law clerk for Justice Anthony Kennedy. So welcome to both of you. So Professor Lim, let's start with you Give us a sense, particularly the thing that the Biden camp right now is focusing on is the affordable care act, which I guess gets argued just shortly after the election. That's right. The Supreme Court is going to hear a case involving a challenge to the affordable Care Act the Tuesday after the election in that cave. The Trump administration, together with several Republican led face is arguing that the Republican amendments to the affordable Care Act back in 2017 rendered one provision in the act unconstitutional when they reduced the penalty for families to purchase health insurance to $0. However, the more significant inconsequential part of their argument is that because that one provision in the affordable care act is unconstitutional, all of the other provisions in the act must follow while including the protection for people with preexisting conditions. Thus far, every Republican appointed judge that has heard working it in the case or decided the case has held that yes, indeed, that provision of the affordable care act is unconstitutional and that other provisions practical as well. And so now that the Supreme Court has team And Chief Justice John Roberts no longer going to be the median justice, but instead that will move. Teo Justice Gorsuch Orjust cabin are just a leader, or Thomas or whoever the replacement is There's now a much greater chance that the Supreme Court could agree with the Trump administration and invalidates the provisions of the affordable care. He's the Trump Administration is taking a position it should all fall. We've had other instances, Professor we're obviously the election could affect this report. I don't recall onwards this specific in this imminent It's not just the election is a short hallway. But the argument of this critical case of Georgia and it's pretty clear. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We know how she would have voted. We think in that case, and it seems quite possible that a Republican appointee would vote the other way. Yes, That's right, because we know how the Democratic appointed justices are going to vote or we're going to vote because one between court heard a challenge to the affordable care act Back in 2011. All of the Democratic appointed justices said that Congress has the power to impose the minimum coverage tradition under either of the commerce clause of the tax power, so they would therefore be perfectly content to uphold the tradition of the commerce spots where the conservative justices all indicated they would invalidate. The minimum coverage provision under the Commerce clause, and so therefore that to indicate that Some Republican appointee just might agree with the Trump administration and validate who knows, however many other provisions of the port of character. So Leah, I'm wondering if, in the Cfpb case, the court severed part of the law, whether that might happen with the affordable care act with a justice like Cavanaugh or even a Lito. Deciding that that provision is not Is not valid, but that they could sever that and leave the affordable care act the rest of it in place. So it's certainly possible. However, the affordable Care Act case that I mentioned back from 2011 in that case, the court also address this question. Well, if one permission the affordable care act is unconstitutional. What happens for the rest of yet Justice Alito and Geoffrey Thomas, who were on the court then would have held that They believed the minimum coverage permission of the affordable care act is unconstitutional. The rest of the act had to follow well, including the protections for people with preexisting condition. And so given that we know that some justices seem inclined to think that some provisions of the affordable care act might not be several Removable from the others. So I think would be wrong to dismiss the possibility that the court is just gonna laugh. He targeted at court, You know, also, of course, Roe v. Wade and abortion rights comes up immediately after Obamacare when you think about Possible rulings that would be in jeopardy and I'm wondering abortion. Pro life activists have been taking a sort of incremental approach to abortion rights and try to knock it down. And that seems away. Chief Justice John Roberts has been approaching it as well. But is it possible if there is an even more conservative Supreme Court that there will be an attack on Roe v. Wade itself that it might be reversed? Also, we've already seen some state the country. The frontal attack are over this way by purporting to prohibit abortions after 6 to 8 weeks after a woman last menstrual period. Those locks are effective Prohibition on abortion full stop, So I think that those days are going to continue to try to push the envelope. And other states will continue to enact other kinds of restrictions as well. This past term, we were just one vote away from Supreme Court, reversing its 2016 deficient and whole woman helpers, Teller said, which held the state could not impose admitting privileges requirement on doctors who perform abortions by a vote of five for the Supreme Court held that Louisiana could not adopt that law. Given that the Supreme Court had invalidated the same logic four years ago, a text in activity But that was by four and chief justice Roberts What the justice who joined with a more liberal colleagues, and if he's no longer the median justice, then it's possible we will be changes an abortion law happening even more quickly than we would have in a world in which the chief justice was a medium at the same time, Professor element Should we have a bit of modesty?.

"To justice is Justice Ginsburg and Justice Sotomayor would have held that regulation was invalid and to justice is Justice Kagan and Justice. Breyer would have preserved the possibility of other challenges to this regulation. However, the five conservatives in the majority strongly signal that they think this regulation is valid, if not required. Well. Finally, justices ruled on Wednesday that federal employment discrimination laws do not apply to teachers whose duties include instruction and religion at schools run by churches. Does this ruling impact just teachers? Or could it be more broth in that? I could absolutely be more broad than that. The ruling was about whether religious teachers at religious schools can be classified as ministers who fall within the scope of what is known as thie ministerial exception to anti discrimination statutes. Under that exception, nondiscrimination statutes like title seven or other laws cannot be applied to individuals who are considered. Ministers. However, the Supreme Court's reasoning in that case suggested that any individual who is charged with doing religious teachings or carrying out religious faith. Teachings could be considered a minister for purposes of the exception, and there's a possibility that individuals who are employed at hospitals or other religious institutions could be considered ministers under that reasoning, even though the Supreme Court not definitively rule on that issue, in the opinion issued on Wednesday.

"Slightly unbalanced we are still queers folk. And Patrick Grant and I met Dominquez today. We're talking about episode. One of season five minutes called move and leave it first aired in the US I may twenty second doesn't five, and that was a ten months after the season four finale. It was written by show runners, Ron Cohen and Dan Littman, and they wrote the season four finale to. Move in leave was directed by Kelly making his eighth of eleven episodes. He directed last season's irritation and separation episode that we unanimously loved. He also directed the season four finale, which we unanimously hated. I think we hated it. Didn't we hate it? Yes. Fans very up and down with season for HERE'S A synopsis for move in leave. Michael takes it upon himself to throw a ten year anniversary surprise party for Mellon Lindsey who proceed to air all their dirty laundry in front of twenty five guests. That was great. Who saw that coming I? Think everyone did I loved Ben. Ben and Michael decide it's time to leave Liberty Avenue in buy a house of their own to other gay couples with children. Justinus stolen Hollywood, but Brian Kansas trip to see him for reasons that we can't quite figure out it ends up, not mattering, though because the studio pulls the plug on rage, and just we'll be heading back to Pittsburgh in the next episode. In a hilarious runner Debbie in Carl Joaquin on Emmett beam, plowed by somebody named Sean causing him to start looking for his own place in a not so hilarious runner Ted meets a tweet that tries to force feed him. Pizza was going on in this episode. Oh. So. It's moving day in Pittsburgh Lindsey moved out. and Michael are thinking of moving out. Carl was moving in with Debbie. Emmett is moving out from Debbie's. And Justin has moved to La, but will soon be moving back to Pittsburgh Brian Todd, major characters, not moving. The stasis finally. This is the whole bunch of like shuffle. The happens interestingly enough. This episode had the second lowest rating of the season by. I thought it was pretty good. Mind this episode so much. Yeah, I'm was especially after the season four finale. I was not mad at this episode at all. So the story was a little confusing, because it had not one not two, but four characters, that kind of wove in and out of the story, and so I grouped Melanie, and Lindsay and Ben and Michael Together into one story, because I think the the notion of Ben and Michael wanting to move out and buy a place was really the cause -ality of Melanie and Lindsay breaking up, and so I married these together, so let's talk about all four people at once. This is like the deluxe a story, okay? So this theme actually of these four characters is going to carry on for several more episodes and kind of a fan of the story, so I don't mind so much going on picking up where we left off last season. The charade continues between Melanie and Lindsay and I'm still digging the secret break-up story. We just know that Michael is going to explode when he finds out. And the writers keep adding onto that. It's a really clever way to build up all this dramatic tension between Michael and the lesbians. We know that Michael just is going to go through the roof when he finds out. Yeah! He goes from zero to one hundred very easily, and I also just think like how horrible this is for. Book Lindsay and Melanie to that they have to somehow. Pile onto the lie to keep going until they decide until they feel like it's then it'll be okay for us to tell them and I'm like well. It's never gonNA be an okay time to tell people because they're gonNA do. What happens later on which is like? You. Had you had the secret the whole time? You didn't feel you? Trust us all that stuff and it's like you know just mentally. That's not gonNA. Do you any good? So why continued to play up the charade? There was good causality behind that we find out later in the big reveal. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael and Ben have some pretty cool neighbors if I must say I love seeing Ben and Michael in that dad mode with hunter when they're scolding him for stopping by the neighbors party, excuse us. Are The giving me a look for. This isn't a fucking back room. Since last. Michael. Just curious. Thanks packed to the rafters. One of the most disliked fades your home. Why aren't you?

I was just trying to be neighborly and maybe couple of we'd. You should be studying for your midterm close boats. Pal that the scolding is just a little too harsh. And I think it is just I mean I I love I love that visual of Michael carrying that giant. ASS giraffe. Ends of the hallway, but also I had no idea they lived that Babylon was lily their next door neighbor. These guys are in and out of that apartment, and just making out and going at it in the hallway. I'm like Hi. This is still a residence. I thought it was weird that Ben says. What is this home central? Yeah It is you you live in the gay neighborhood? Even with the door closed, you could still hear the bass and coming through thumper thumper. I got a note about that term later on. I used to have neighbors like that. When I lived in boys town, and it was actually kind of a lot of fun. They always had something going on, and I would love to just stop by, but I also like to sleep a good point That's why I like.

Oprah as a love the former bosses Amanda. I'm happy to tell you that the Tasha Leo Gift of her clapping readily available for whenever you need that's great people are ready.

Naomi watts she looks phenomenal and black just logged in just great the new game of thrones star new game. It's just getting ready. I I liked we'll talk a lot more reckoning with routes but I like to the end of the show how David any off who is my one true love can be like and now it's over we did it and now it is over totally disavowing try to shut out any notions of the prequels and spin offs that are that are coming alright great injection positively positively we'll ride this enthusiasm into talking about the most awkward moment of evening which was allow a complicated one which was when. Phoebe Waller Bridge won on Best Actress in a comedy beating out Julia Louis Dreyfuss in her final season as Lena Meyer from beep and bridges incredibly happy. Kate was incredibly happy. Many people on the Internet were incredibly happy. Let's get this out of the way. This is a pro fleabag podcast. You're lovely about free. It's one of the best things that that I've seen in any medium in two thousand and nineteen. Maybe in the decade yet great up there yeah fix perfect episodes a season two. Yes at flawless sure but Julia Louis Dreyfus purpose is probably the best television actress of in history. Yeah I think she's like Lucille Ball and Carol channing. Yes and she had one for veep. I believe every season she had been nominated and she was going to break the record for the most emmy wins by a woman of of all time and she she is there's also a breast cancer survivor yeah and that happened between these seasons so I think we all assumed that this would be her emmy and and it was not and that's the way the cookie crumbles moreover everyone in the room assuming yes so it was like the most tepid response. It's a win from a show that is universally praised yes. I'm sure that no one's like fleabag doesn't deserve it deserve. It really sucks sucks. That's how the point just was such an incredibly awkward moment. Totally I think okay like root for history. It's like when you walk or it's and you want to see a record broken or you. You want like someone's got hot. Hand you want to leave him in the game but as long as possible like it's okay to root for history it's okay to experience that moment and it was just really awkward. Yeah and it's also a fever waller. Bridge did not really read the room in that moment. I was wondering I guess veep is maybe not a big deal in the UK. They don't care about it. They're like we have in the loop. We don't actually need the American version of IANUCCI stuff but she was like thanking her agent and I just it wasn't the note that you wanted at that. Moment also weird for her to be profusely thanking or agent given the feud between writers and agents right now. Yes weird moment. It was not mentioned once during the entire telecast now's house per day and there was a lot of ignoring everything going on TV. No one was talking about streaming services. Everyone was just you know thinking whatever likes Amazon that that helped them. A lot of Amazon wants by the way but yeah it just it. It was uncomfortable. Even though it was happy yeah it's like not undeserved served right with the moment felt wrong and it. Kinda sucks then for our bread shoes. True talent is actually Frank Kayla. I will say like she seems super for actress to me in that moment in a way. I don't like to acknowledge and I just like Oh. This is a real actress but she also had just been up there like I think it would have been different if she hadn't won anything yet yet right right right so she had just been up there. She's up there again. It's like Oh you again like everyone loves her but like it is. It would have been different than if it had just been the first win for few celebrity yeah so it's tough. It's a no win a little bit she continued to she did continue to win now. She did and it was awesome. That fleabag won best comedy. US totally detailing curling. Everyone say their favorite episode man you go first the last one I mean come on the answer here. I soon as you said that to me. I I also kind of don't think of them as discreet right so it's entirely it was just one you could put those together and it would be like one very long movie and it would be kind of perfect shorter then some worth celebrating movies kate the first episode the pilot was the second season yeah great one of the Jumpsuit Yeah Mine's the number three's Kristin Scott Thomas See Russia Kristin Scott Thurow's Jonzon hot priest socially tough but you got yeah Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh yeah that's a trade. That's funeral so many other version of one yeah one we don't talk about the new one in the really funny thing about season into fleabag is just like everyone acknowledges now including TV while our bridge how essential Andrew Scott as you play the AK Moriarty too many of us who watched Sir Lock. Yeah weird very greatest in yeah. It was really cool and she when she turned to him accepting best comedy. It was like we did this because Andrew. You're Scott came in and that was cool. It was great and also you finally got to be on stage which was good so a motive. Actually I just want to say I love back. I don't need any more Brett Gelman twenty twenty between fleabag and stranger things. Yeah Ozone Lot shred amount of everything done. We're done offense. I guess it's it's really inherently offensive thing okay moving on so that was like a low and then and then I within a low below the recovered itself yeah. Just I mean it is remarkable. It's saying that is a special as fleabag actually won the emmys. We don't see actually the best. Things don't usually win awards. That's literally every awards show and fleabag winning and phoebe Waller winning for writing. It's just like wow we did it. That's great yeah so that was good good job on this one thing good Johnson. Okay Okay Hi Michelle Williams speech amazing stuff amazing stuff. This is also what happens when you practice and you prepare and she had clearly given some thought to what she wanted to say and not. Maybe she wrote it. I'm not really sure because it was definitely well-crafted and she hit her points but it was more that she had an idea and she wanted to turn this into It's a speech about equal pay which is like something. She's been crosshairs about a lot. If you remember when they did the re-shoots for I guess it was called all the money in the world it was the Getty Nassar Getty show out of it so Kevin Spacey's the Laura for Christopher plummer and they did the re shoots her fi versus Mark Wahlberg fee. Yes she took like a daily fee and Mark Wahlberg at one point five million dollars and then it became a thanks so she I used that in order to talk about a Fosse verdant. FX And the support and what happens when you actually do support of working specifically women have car work. She just like she had the stats. That's she nailed it.

"Now I am joined by Juliet Littman to have a shot about bodyguard. Okay. Julia. I've watched on episode five I have not watched episode five, but I'm on episode five. And so this will be a spoiler inclusive episode taking in the first four episodes finished bodyguard. Yes has finished bodyguard. Cayenne, I on the money team with her eyes on Monday when I sit she said, did you watch bodyguard? And I was like watching episode about how about you. She's like watch all I detest around that is nothing wrong with it. In fact, it just makes me feel ashamed as a television podcast her. I wish I had more. I'm like, what do I do? Now. That's a great way to start it off. Yeah. What an incredibly paced show such an amazing like return on investment. You know, does it remind you of homeland. They reminds me of how I felt I season homeland me tale. It's like a feeling I have a TV feeling. I haven't felt in a while, which is exhilarating siding. So I think they I I'm curious about. This. I came to you this morning, and you know, in the third episode of the end of the third episode of bodyguard, they're huge spoiler. Warning. We're spoiling force even sow just one more warning. Here you go. There's an explosion at a speech that the home secretary. Julia Montague extra secretary secretary. How did I sit home state, which is call her mom? There's an explosion at a species giving a college and she passes away from her injuries. She dies from her. She blows. Yeah. It's not funny. No. But I found myself immediately just kind of being like that's not why I was watching the show. I was watching the show because of the central tension between David and Julia, and this idea that they could be so politically and sort of philosophically apart. But so close together in other ways till you're saying you're like shocked bummed that she I was very very ended a romance. And I was very into the tension that they had on screen, and you're saying that you obviously the show's pivoting towards unraveling this conspiracy around Julia's death, Cheryl, but were you disappointed to see that the way it was happening that she died. Yeah. No. I wasn't at all. I didn't really care what their romance. And I'm a big romance person. Obviously, I love melodrama, and I love a soap opera, but I didn't find it that believable. And that's because I really like the show. I find Richard Madden's character a little confused. Ding has so. I can't tell what his true motivation is like is it to be a patriot. Is it choose to avenge the deaths of his friends and Afghantistan? Yeah. Is it is it to pursue a political agenda? I've finished the season as discussed completely know. And to me, that's a failure of writing not acting. Whereas with his counterpart on game of thrones can Harrington. I'd be like, yeah. That guy's the worst actor. So this is the first British television show that has been sort of presented initially is somewhat limited series and turned into a juggernaut. And they've done another series of it's a broad church is not unlike this where if you watch broad church, you're not like what's going to happen in season two broad church. Love Brocher broad church students so popular they were like, well, we have to do something. The fall is lost like that. Would Jamie Dornan Gillian Anderson where they were just like it was pretty much like a who done it like cat and mouse thriller, and then they teased it out for another three or four seasons. Now, you can kind of get away with that England 'cause you can just do a four episode show like. They do Sherlock. Sometimes just three. Yeah. But I do think that this was something where the popularity of bodyguard might have actually changed the way because there's going to be a second season of this show. So it might have changed the perception of
