That won't be a problem. More important, we would like you to publicly announce a successor. And we would like the person you publicly announce to be shove on, Roy..

"With with smash. You have more time for your own projects. So how how do you guys like that and how has that changed since the pandemic? Are you scared? You'RE GONNA cause a third wave if you do that? Yeah. It's like it's kind of like a WHO's a thing where you say the name three times likely. Beethoven demand to beetlejuice. Okay beetlejuice. Yeah. So I want to go home I. Think you gotTa Click those heels when we came back with a with mythical, we Kinda we kinda spoke with know all of you guys and. kind of got the idea of like what what you wanted to do like how much time you you wanted like, what, what are you see is the the benefits and the the cons to taking on more of like a like a freelance sort of position you WanNa, go first to Libya I don't know how my answer I tell you I want to be the president of smart and that didn't happen so. I know you even you had this whole entire succession plan an. Assassin. Logan Roy and I was Kendall and didn't happen to I. Guess on the shorthand the the quickest way to describe it would be like less money more time with both have positives and negatives to it that that's I think the quickest way to summarize it with the extra time as an entertainer if you take a you know fulltime position or or a freelance. Position, you're sort of weighing two different types of opportunities. Right when you're when you're taking on something full-time, you're you're dedicated to just that sort of like one thing for the most part. So they're still they're still obviously opportunities there be more dedicated to that one thing. But when you're working freelance, then you then you have other other opportunities, right? Yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah for myself just in the grand scheme of things like Having the opportunity to both go on full-time but also have the opportunity to do freelance I can both situations I. Think obviously when I, I hopped into the job inciting like a large contract with defied media and kind of the issues with that relationship that bleed into other relationships. But I think it led me to both that it was a first experience for me for some working in the real world I also getting like a true education. In what I want my job to be, and also just the requirements of the job itself I. Think it led me to obviously like not be the best employees that I could be I think still completed my job and was able to help obviously I don't think that I was the best I could have been. Yeah. Not Not that I wanted to hurt define media or anything like that. Just just that if relationship is defined media wasn't that great. and. I didn't feel passionate about going to my job. I. Wasn't necessarily hurt defy media I was like hurting my friends. So in that way, I was a little immature and a little not as productive as I could have been full-time. So freelance I think leads me to be able to hop in and give my hundred percent in these areas where I know that can give one hundred percent. I do miss the fulltime element not just like obviously seeing my friends but writers rooms are probably one of the best things that I had the opportunity to do at smash like the head writer and all of our writers there are literally unbelievable people. And I just really appreciate the opportunity to just like soak in what they were doing of not that like I was ever handed anything huge huge responsibility but was given enough to kind of start to cut my teeth. But also it was a small team we were working so hard and under such specific conditions Internet production type stuff where you end up being able to just see people under stress when they're happy when they're not when they're working hard like you you get to soak in so much about what someone else's job is in what they're going through that I really felt or feel like I learned so much from from smash just through. which is amazing. I. Don't know that answering the question but that's how I feel. I mean it's it's all a personal experience like it's it's it's how you took. What was what was given something like this has never been done on digital like. A bunch of people as turning a group of people into. Youtube creators on an already established channel Yes somebody like you know seven years ago. What is like? What is smart will it's it's Ian Anthony. And I mean, you still get the confusion from people to this day being like way what? Yeah and it's an end. Yeah. Because nobody does not like an established thing of like having other people come onto the channel. So our initial plan was was you know bring in five people and teach them how to be creators and then they'll be creators like us. We were definitely guess foolhardy would that be the right word where where I think we didn't understand like. Individual drives you know because like Anthony and I knew what drove us to be creators? We sort of shaped smash into what it was just because. That's what drove us. We just kind of assume that that could apply to everybody but that's just not the case and I think I think that's something that we've gotten better at where we now can kind of see everyone's strengths and try to apply it in that way and obviously make everyone look good in the process I think and I think that's I. think that's one thing that that I think we have done well is just making sure that nobody nobody like under smash fails. Like like, it's our job to like make you guys look good. And that's number one. Thank you. I've always felt that support. You know I. Don't think I was seeing that like while when I first started smash because the comments relate well live he seems disconnected and stuff like that and just because I never knew that this job. was like me being myself because I don't think myself and I've said this many times that? I didn't grow up with like watching logs or you -bors I joined this because I thought I was going to be acting a lot and then it became more like Oh and you gotTa showcase this fun personality. Yours and I was like I didn't understand that at all and nor was I really even given the Like the information about that. So I felt like maybe my first few months at smash or onscreen was like. I didn't realize that I seem disconnected when I thought. This is how normal people behave in a room for play games like bouquet like I'm not trying to make jokes with my friends every second because I didn't get it. You know now I do and it's really annoying people now just. Like, stop it. But but yeah, I I didn't feel like I was showcasing like a person that people wanted to see you know..

"She it's like they've the dress her to be more free and she has the back great line when she goes. I don't want to put a damper on Raya celebrations or anything but it's time we killed her day in her skull in with Iraq and you're like okay yeah and like you don't want to go up against shift wanting to smash your skull in with her because she house Rox but I do think that the whole I mean what brings all of them down is proximity to Logan so this is shifts fund period because she's pushing Raya into the sun and then we'll see what happens when she actually I mean I don't I think I actually feel like it's sort of nothing personal with Logan Roy but once you get sucked in you then become tainted and he abuses you and it's only a matter of time before your humiliated four on the floor cast aside bore on the floor. I mean that reference. Was You know Ms Good to remind everyone threat what happens is there anything to be said about. Marsha and like Rupert Murdoch's various wives and any references all logan references all his wife was yeah I mean I think that the it'll depend on what Marcia ends up eventually doing but if Marcia is a sort of Wendi Murdoch of of this show which it seems like that's who she would be. She was his third second third third. When he was his third. She'll become abusive and eventually really I mean we're being really literal than her. Sons will establish and create a dossier on all the things that she's done. She'll have an affair with various world leaders. Maybe somehow by and will eventually be cast out who's James in lockdowns. Mom Anna Mandatory as the I mean I I yeah so the the connor character is actually the oldest daughter who is in some ways prudence thank you prue and then Anna Has Lachlan James and Liz and then Wendy has grace and chloe and then obviously Jerry not. There's no more children Jerry Hall. Jerry Hall has not right. It's a little brady bunch but this is interesting subplot of like Kana running out of money where you have Roman buying a football team on a whim you have have Kendall the wrong lives Kendall Kendall sending jets and clearly not having any money worries in Kana who you know we remember his massive pad in New Mexico and he brought out like an entire hotel and that's suddenly seems we've woken up without any money he like. I know that Broadway productions can be expensive but like something well. He's also running a presidential campaign right. He's on two fronts. He's bankrolling a Broadway play. It's going to be a complete failure and he's running a presidential campaign those consultants in his living room right another great mom was when they're at Logan Roy's childhood home and Connor says I mean I would totally live her. I wouldn't put somebody could it's like they. They don't know I mean they would never for people to actually stomach kind of regular middle class also re connor the first Pancake Pancake Hickory line apparently apparently his mother was sent to an asylum or something. Did you catch the real world parallels there too yeah and they said something just like four connors. Mom Mom yeah I I then McConnell. Khanna's definitely a weird line we plot with uh when he when he comes out with that line about sometimes. I think he'll never truly understand that until I shit outside what yeah that was a running theme and throughout the episode did Logan. Actually should outsiders just myth his sort of went in his line. I mean I don't know how to make his Logan's discussion. And what did he say that the future is real but the past is all made up. I love that and his Rosebud was you know whatever whatever whatever the fuck it took to get me out of here his sister that he somehow feels responsible for her an and why you and that she said that actually that wasn't your the full right what's wonderful about the show is like I heard the set on someone else's podcast so ripping someone else but they don't really fill in the blanks. You know there's no a flash cheesy flashbacks to tell you exactly what happened to Logan in his child's. We just have all these little delectable clues about dead sister about a mother dying when he's four years sold about how they left Dundee but we don't know what the circumstances were. What happened we. We really don't know anything but it's so fun to get the little clues. Almost makes makes you want to fill in a back story. You know we got a lot of good clues in this one all the Scotland stuff and the girl who didn't even play the harp. It could be slate.

The first main thing that they get wrong is that they don't brush their teeth for long enough but Twi- has a built in time gives you thirty-second pulses which ensure the you brush for two minutes.

We pack of the Huffington Post and this episode is so big an amazing and awesome that we have not one but two special guests s we have cooling in Reno Nevada. We have Katie Baker. I Lake Naomi. I came off a flight from the West Coast for this Casey Baker achot rights for the ringer and is based in Nevada or California California side California side of the California Nevada border and notwithstanding the fact right but she lives in California. She's come all the way to Brooklyn to be on this show but we also joined by Jacob Weisberg of Pushkin Industries who who <hes> not withstanding the fact that he lives just down. The street is calling in from a remote studio somewhere. I'm calling you from what we work on. West Twenty Ninth Street so Jacob used to run on this show slate and has now moved onto granted podcast you things but what he still believes in more than anything else is the awesomeness successions so we're going to dive right in here this. I'm GonNa say just off the bat that number one. This was an amazing episode but number two the amazing. This was not in the veep veep esque lines. This isn't one of those episodes. We just need to quote the whole show because it was so quotable like this was one of those shows where like the things oh you picked up on what like. Oh My god Martian narrowed her is we should definitely do a deep dive into the Marsha Logan situation because is things got really crazy with Marsha dissing his wine cellar at dinner but I feel like I to me. This episode was a lot what about you know Chevron and that promise that was made to her in the first episode that she was the anointed and this episode makes clear that she is very much not the anointed so this was the episode where the macguffin finally actually serve some purpose so in episode one and I remember complaining cleaning about this when we did the recap episode one in episode one Logan Roy comes out and says I'm going to need to name a successor and everyone kind of looks around around as they're watching the show why like why do you need and and he was like something something proxy wars something and you're like okay but explain why you need a success and then doc creates the sort of central tension for the whole series which is who is going to be the successor in weather shipborne is going to be named as the successor in all of this kind of thing in in the back of your head you're like why does he need to name a successor and then actually in this episode we kind of have a reason why it might be a good idea to have a success because if you have a <hes> liberal young female success that maybe makes it easy f you to by peers and so now having number one decided in episode one he needs a successor and then number two now has like really good tactical and strategic reasons to name her in public public for various. PS related reasons he doesn't do so what's up with that Katy. We'll talk about Katie. You can kind of see him..

It was huge mode with all the kids towards candle and rightfully so from their perspective. It's a betrayal. It's you know the defeat of everything they know not that everything they know is especially good or beneficial towards the greater humankind but in their little world and they're very big little world. Let's a breach of loyalty in the family and i think that is one of the greater sins that can be committed amongst they call it reason yeah and and like kendall in that moment back in season one in the finale was like trying to be like it's not treason to go against dad for like strong reasons like that's not what this is like. You're paul warped. Y'all brainwashed now. Kendall whose zombie who's just parroting ever logan needs him to say but the his siblings have no who sympathy for him they just see him still as the enemy who has had a son about phase that there must either be like some black male dad has on kendall or some back groome deal that kendall and logan have struck that narrative is probably reinforced by the fact that by the end of the episode logan has named kendall and roman co ceos of waste are royko so the fact that that has happened even the we know what kendall is going through and we see it and painful excruciating detail. It's a very very very tight. Net of people who do know so of course is siblings are going to be absolutely offer him. I wrote down some of what they said in their first confrontation with with with kendall yeah. Let's rehash all right. Foul language is about to ensue filthy. W is language is about take place over. You were in the presence of young children. Probably don't listen to the succession podcast listening to this allowed at work. Yes this is for work but on headphones or skip ahead thirty seconds to a minute here we go roman says about kendall. He's like a sex robot for dad to fuck shift. Says says these like an old beaten dog. Roman says he's both of those things and also a piece of shit shifts as no. He's pathetic. Little fucking narcissist is to repeatedly puts his own self interest above everything else and then tries to justify it with half asked appeals to the rigors of the fucking market and then roman punctuates the point by saying you're. You're a fucking prick. The truman that kendall is getting right now as he is being just like as his father says at one point we get up on the rack. We're gonna we're gonna stretch you out limb from limb william wallace style and like that's the same treatment that he's getting from his siblings who on their best day a are are pretty awful so so here for kendall's worst day <hes> there or one of his worst days. He's in his worst days <hes> their their normal normal levels of interaction are just especially more painful. I'm sure yeah i mean it's an questioning why he's not fighting back either because i think that everyone has has a pretty good report with one another when it comes to feeling challenged or threatened yeah they're very fast to take jabs at one another and the fact that kendall's handles not saying anything sort of suspicious radio. I don't think that they could guess what had happened not but there are also like that's kind of unlike him usually he's witty enough to come back at us or sort of measured in a way that he doesn't seem to be at this moment in time. I think that they could they could pull it together eventually eventually but they're you know one of the things that we're doing with on succession. Is you know it's the viper's nest as as they talk about but like really like every single. One of them is a viper narcissists. They're all self concerned with their own ascension to power that you wonder who is actually going to pay enough attention to kendall to figure out or to want to figure out what's actually going on with him and if they figure it out what level of sympathy are they going to have for this guy like roman. I'm an kendall's story lines. You imagine are going to be fairly closely linked in the near term as they're both co-ceo is so as roman going to be preoccupied with understanding why his brother is is you know in this very dark way or is he just going to be so mad at his brother's still that he's not even gonna care. I think if history past prologue like i i feel like that dictates to us. That road probably isn't going to give them much crap. I mean everyone's also wrapped up in their own. Dramas right like rome in at a press conference to discuss the satellite. I like that exploded right and but i'm not rocket science which is such a brutally awful incredible. Lie throws out there yeah but yeah they're trying to investigate. They're taking questions from the press. There's a lot of discussion on how serious this investigations going to be. They want to figure out the time line like why this was pushed washed up so quickly in romans kind of sitting there cowering and you know trying to give his best two cents in on something that was basically his fault. Well rooms trying to be more of a serious person. How's he doing is with comes in and goes. That's fascinating though because there was a great line about that the first season i think it's the second episode of the first season where we're kendall's trying to like articulate why he's the right person to succeed in roman and shivers still like pushing for themselves. Elves and kendall says around like you're good guy but you're not a serious person. I think roman is really trying to be serious person. He sees right now. Given the severity of everything that if he is ever going to be named the successor like the time is now for him to go from a little prince linked to like actual lord of this kingdom to the to the top of the mountain to really do well in the dentist appointment with zeus says they talk about logan at one point but logan doesn't seem to really be you picking up what he's putting down in terms of advice right. No i think that the game that kendall that kendall that roman is describing to logan when he's brought behind closed doors like he he wants to sell off everything and basically play the stock market which is not like the spirit of logan roy well logan roy is like you no like a shoot everything that moves kind of guy like way star royko has its hands in so much shift talks about this in her meeting with logan about how how were an indie film we're in video games were in theme parks way too much and that sort of logan's thing. He wants it all he wants. The world roman wants money for logan. I think if it was just about money and if it was just about the well being of his family he would have sold and i think that that was the direction that he was. Maybe leaning for a minute in this episode as we talked about in the preview show and as it came from sarah snook who plays shift <hes> that the favorite child of logan roy. Is this company that away so easily. Give it up without a fight. Even if it's the wrong thing to do. That's the child he's gonna fight for the most and what romans pitching not something that interested ten billion dollar payout sounds good though yeah let me get a slice of a pizza pie that onto the table with all the other pizzas i mean but also it's the kind of thing what would he even occupy his time with if he didn't have this company the need around any longer right yeah no. I think that you you hear that a lot like from people who are in very powerful positions that are like all consuming jobs odds that become identity you know that are close to the age of retirement and they don't really need to be working anymore. It's not like i'm speaking from the experience ends of my father who i loved dearly but is you know he's been at his at his same. Job probably doesn't need to be there anymore but he is. He's very into his work. Can he has said to me that like he's. He's very concerned about what happened to his brain if he decides to stop working. I imagine that it's a similar deal with somebody like logan. Roy who entire existence is baked into the idea that he built this thing from the ground up. This is a monument to his his achievements in life and he doesn't want to see it fade away a he doesn't wanna see crumble but he is like that parent. Who is you know nearing the age of not being able to be trusted to completely live on their own isolation and the need to start back during their children into their own retirement plans into their own plans of like well. How am we're going to begin the process of leaving this planet and are just like refusing to have that conversation are refusing to actively make preparations and for what the future looks like without them and it may be he's actually starting to do that with schiff who he he locks in as the person that he's going to name his successor. They have a really on the face of it tender moment talking about that yeah. But how real is it versus. This is just like a stopgap for now. He's still not really thinking about the future of his children. If he was thinking about the future of his children he would have sold the company and gone for the ten billion dollar payout yeah. That's the i mean the advice from everybody like so yeah. I also feel bad for shift that she has to keep reiterating. This is for real right like we're not joking here. This is real and that almost makes me even more nervous that he's going to turn on her. We're he'll be like oh yeah. Wind it up for you and then you know some other thing comes up that makes it more appealing for him personally personally and he's going to you know sort of pulled out away from chef yeah well. It's funny because shiv shiv being the successor. It makes so much percents for a lot of reasons she is. She is one of the she's one of the smartest characters on the show. She's arguably the smartest of the siblings. It's between her and kendall and i you think kendall has proven that so many things are allowed to get in his own way or he has blind spots. He dudes the wrong. People you know and he doesn't interact with people the right way and the substance abuse doesn't help either shiva's clearly the front runner to win survivor of the four roy siblings. It's not enough how we haven't even really talked what about conner at all talking about really the only thing the dog about with shiva shiva is the is the one who i would bet on the win every single time time because she is. She's smart. She's personable. She understands people's like turnkey situations and because of of that i'm inclined to think that if logan is planning some kind of double cross if he's like using shift as a means to an end right now then shift would see the at coming but i think something that i didn't see coming was how emotional ship was going to be when logan start saying like this is for real if you want this it's yours and then like you you see that like crack and the facade like she allows herself a moment of being really touched by it of all. This is something i always wanted but never thought was possible for me..

"Course is that the bid the he's fighting off is at a high price and so if the share price goes up towards the bid price that means people think that the it is gonna happen. If the share price fools down below the bit rice that means they think the logan roy is going to win so we're in this weird sort of bizarro world where everyone in the company wants to ship to be low. What's great. All says they never explain it. They never get into like here's why like mostly. There's all this exposition when you see some kind kind of a movie or a t._v. Show this is like no. We're not going to explain it. All you have to do is read the emotions on their faces like yeah. This sucks right so like but that's a great geeky moment. Go for listeners who care about that stuff. You know that sort of risk arbitrage whenever a deal is announced or deal is in play between companies. <hes> you know there are investors who make bets so like you know. I think this deal is going to happen. There's not going to happen and the price goes up or down accordingly. That's another government. I think this second season really really crackles with like business. Sophistication does is a really really good job harkening back to the first season that you mentioned. I did have an issue with that whole the macguffin in the first season which was like oh my god like he's he's in the hospital and like you need to take over. I have to tell you something. There's a debt situation that no one knows about what here's the thing. Though is that historically that kind of stuff it does happen. There was an example with <hes> national amusements sumner redstone parent company right that own c._b._s. Viacom where he took out loans apparent company took got loans against the price of c._b._s. Viacom and he kinda hit it and so when investors found out there like what the fuck and so he's like no it'll be fine. Don't worry so that scenario has happened the thing that didn't quite ring true from the fictionalized version. Is that somehow. The debt exists on the public companies books. We're getting really geeky that would never ever happened. You would never happen in real life like that. If anything would have been better if like the debt holders actually owned the shares are holding onto them and they had a covenant to sell at a certain price which shift they did like the family would start to lose control. There was a great phone. Call in the first season. Where like that on the phone with candles is it kendall thinks can lose on the fuck off yeah i have. I have your nuts in advice. I can do whatever you want. Talk yourself out of this. This is a running theme. I think in the whole show show is kendall a really wants to be tough and he can act tough but like no one takes him seriously the setup is also sort of like as much as you might sort of despise the dad for whatever the reason shareholders believing him that's what they're buying into the him as much as the fundamentals of company and like when there's a moment where can takes over there. Is this sort of. I don't know who who is this kid. Do i trust him. As you're going to be a good leader. I think that sort of reverberates through the whole season which is like are the kids good enough not just in the eyes of the dad but like in the eyes of the world i mean the kids are terrible. I think we need to talk about is the set piece of this episode. Yes so this is amanda. Energy dna means the every single character is terrible and that kind of goes without saying but yeah if you're talking about what i think you're talking about. Emily the best seen i think the <hes> succession has ever done is the scene between logan and chevron in the summer house in the hamptons..

"The thing that you thought would be the big driving plotline for the whole season is the internal in fighting between the kids did not actually become that driving line in this season again what we wind up with. Is this kind of full hitchcock in word for mcgovern. It's a macguffin fin that you get this wonderful. Macguffin introduced the very beginning where logan roy of if i'm gonna fight back i'm gonna have to name a successor and like why no no one ever explains why he needs to name a successor in order to fight back. I have a feeling this is also going to be one of those things. That gets resolved by about well i think i think there's more this idea that what you want. The the season needs to propel right so i think the idea of logan roy sort of dangling succession throughout the season i think is sort of a key driving force for like all the drama takes place. I would say in the last episode. What was really really smartly done. Was that whole setup around like well look. Are you going to sell like detect companies acquiring after you like it. It really captures what's been happening with in the real world what happened with rupert murdoch's company twenty percents. You factories sold the disney with all these other mergers that are happening. It's because a big tech that coming in and kind of stealing your son okay so this is why we invited you on make you actually understand this stuff and you can explain it there. Is this another line in the in the show. It's like tech has its hands around. Your throat says the banker to the patriarch. So can you explain what that means and why why why is tech like an existential risk to media companies so i think that's seen that you're talking about really really vividly captures the state of play which is you're you're a big media company that means you movie studios and cable networks and maybe some broadcast networks maybe some newspapers. We know what's happened in newspapers right. No one's reading print. That's die hi t._v. People are still watching but not the way they used to so there are fewer people paying cable bill that cuts into twentieth century fox and disney to some degree and a bunch of these other media. Why is that happening because everyone's on facebook and instagram and tech talking doing that thing so in terms of entertainment where you're distractions are cable is losing thing movie. Theaters are losing despite a few outliers like marvel and that hold media infrastructures just dying dying a slow death. That's what makes it sort of frustrating right. It's it's not a clear break it just every quarter. There's fewer people paying for television. Fewer people going to movie theaters and guys like rupert. Murdoch are like what the hell right so him selling out as surprising thing as it was for a lot of murdoch watchers just from a rational perspective like make complete sense and that was actually almost directly referenced in this episode owed when logan roy gets his family around the table and says late we can sell that you know his his adversaries. This guy sandy like he's overpaying. I'm for royko wasthe we will get ten billion dollars if we sell right now and that's clearly setting up at some point and what's great about zero great. That's a great deal ten billion guess. What did the murdoch family get out of that. Is he sale. They got twelve billion right sort of like this perfect like if you really wanna read deeply deeply into it like yeah. That's exactly that situation. Here's the thing though as we saw at the end of episode one what was the resolution skirt. We're going to stick with it so it departs from reality in that really specific if you just decide to sell at the end of episode one that there's a we're over right like a clear departure from what's happened in real life but it's done in a in a smart way where the acknowledge that what's going on in the world right. That's what's so smartly done about that. I'm david plots. What's one of the hosts of the political gabfest and i'm in your ears right now to encourage you to sign up for slate plus.

"He knows everything about everything and most importantly. You've been just as obsessed about this. Show is anyone i have. I mean i i watched the first season <hes> as they aired as they came out and i for the most part liked it but i definitely had some issues i mean and when you cover an issue so in-depth for so long your candidate right. Were you worried that some of it wasn't quite very similitude cuteness. No no but that's the thing i actually adore just how geeky a got about a finance and media inc over full stack. Oh absolutely like this is great but then when you get it wrong you're like. Why did you have to go do that now right. It's almost better sometimes if they didn't quite go that deep. He's you're like. I mean maybe i wouldn't be as interested. I bet yeah so the thing which i was obsessed by more than anything else is. Who are these characters because everyone obviously sees maddox. Oh yeah you there are two sons who has sort of rivals as the door to who's kind of out of it but kind of not out of it but there's the older there's older son who's like who sort of not really involved in the family that's prudence but there's overlap with the red stones to the the family that controls c._b._s. Viacom where there had been a succession about for so long it doesn't quite line up in terms of the structure with the kids because sherry a redstone is really sort of the only sort of <hes> biological heir apparent. There's an older son brent who basically asunder bought him out right and so he lives in colorado and a ranch right so so that's that is connor kind of melding. It's very smart sort of milange of like all of avenue i know people who spent a lot of time working for the dolan family and they see a whole bunch of alan's in here as well before we get into the comparisons we should just lay out who the characters are on the show and hit me. Tell me who is logan roy so logan. Roy is the patriarch he is mike. Edmonds said he is basically the rupert bert murdoch. He's i think he's eighty five years old when the series starts and he has some kind of health episode is it a stroke or heart attack or something bad happens bins to him and he has four children the oldest connor you know from his first marriage and then the three other ones two boys two boys and a girl from the second marriage and the two guys are called kendall and <hes> what's the other one roman candle in roman and ship those are like the three heirs battling for the company because roy runs a company etienne which is like this massive media company of the health code wasted based on t._v. But there's the parent company waste our royko that like it just again like how they geek out on little details like that. We're like well. Actually there's this a company called waste which is clearly function of a merger between royko which is roy company which logan roy company which he founded which is the media company on waste our she's killing some kind of telecom thing that while a decade ago right exactly and then and then one of the.

"I think puts him in position to be the early M._v._p.. Prediction for succession season to thank you so much Julian for the question. How many steroids is at Logan Roy pumping himself with that's a great? That's a Kayak Molin. Follow up I so far I have not seen any <hes> any of the steroids going to know P._D.'s yet. We'll see yeah only only time will tell all right next question. Kevin wants to know what show either now or in the horizon will be the next the office or friends a comedy show that even decades past its finale is still binge worthy for multiple generations. This is a great question Kevin. I've been thinking about this a lot because you know as I talked to <hes> Alison Herman and Lucretia over the last couple of weeks in our streaming worse conversations I think you've seen maybe even an outsized amount of value placed on shows like the office and friends. I personally like you can't really say because you don't know the actual numbers of of of what kind of viewership the office and France takes up for net flicks but I think that you've seen like at a tremendous amount of like importance placed on them for these new services like H._B._O.. Max whatever the warners Sir if assuming friends goes under the H._B._O.. Max Flagship or the office going on N._B._C. Universal eventually that you've seen like that okay well. We've we've got that coming. Even if it's in three years we've got this coming. A will people still be watching on their fiftieth rewatch of the office and a couple of years. It's hard to say or will there be a show that sort of takes the place of these shows and if I had to vote for one and I might be biased because I actually already like it and I've already watched all the episodes if you how I met your mother so why is that I think that the reason one of the reasons why the office and friends are are popular aside from like like the the low great comfort level of the sort of action and the performances in general and just it's. It's sort of like a night light that is just engaging enough off but not too demanding. I think that there's an attraction to the sense of place for lack of a better term now. Even though a lot of these shows are shot on sound stages a really great show no matter whether it's Sitcom or a prestige drama has a sense of place and I think that people feel like they are in a friendly comfortable world when when they were watching the office or friends and I think that they would feel the same way or they did feel the same way watching how I met your mother. Now your mother gives you didn't know as a show that ran from about ten ten years from two thousand and five on at star Jason Segel Alyson Hannigan Kobe smoulders Josh Radnor and of course Neil Patrick Harris and it was phenomenal. I just love that show. I I mean maybe some of the humor has not aged the best in over the years and you know I think the later seasons are a little bit hit or miss but sorta later seasons of friends. It's just that you just kind of like get into the idea that you have these four hundred or five hundred episodes or episodes of friends there to watch the thing about how I met your mother. We're gonNA say something Kyle. No had no. I was GONNA say the thing about how I met your mother that I think might bring it back. Around for new generations of viewers is that we probably will start getting nostalgic for two thousand and five pretty soon if not already if you years that will be almost ten years ago there will be certain quirks works like Oh they're looking at a blackberry but they're not quite addicted to like twitter and smartphone and facebook and stuff.

Film out called generation wealth have? You seen it what did Tim think, of it I, saw, it in SF. And wow it was great. Scary tragic? And. Powerful I completely agree with Mr. B's assessment yeah we talked about this movie on your. Show and it was one of the few documentaries I think I've seen that actually kind of explains. In its, own way the rise of forty five I mean it may if you, watch this. Movie in a weird kind of convoluted twisted sense the. Emergence of forty five makes a kind of sense I totally agree. With, Mr., B's Assessment okay greatly and I'm sure he's gonna like hearing that now this has nothing to do with. The movie, but the name of it reminded me and I wanted to ask you, have you. Seen yet succession on HBO no I want to tell. You to see it's so. Good God yeah it's a. Series goddess series oh. My God but, it's so good. You're not going. To regret it. It's so good.

He doesn't, want to step aside but he's getting older and. His. Family, they're now adults and they. I'm sorry his, name is Logan ROY. The company is waste are Lloyd. Royko and they. Want him to they want him out or some of them want. Him out. So he's, kind of contemplating what, he wants to do he, thought about resigning he saw his kids. Were doing didn't like. It came back, they hated it, it's just it's. Great I mean. There's just so. Much going on, between the characters There's a, wonderful they're all really different. And a lot of the really. Peripheral characters are as good as the main. Characters and that's one of the, reasons I like it is because all, of them are just so amazing so. Odd so different and just, you know, we can talk for. Hours, about just one of these characters I may sound colorful to the. Characters very very colorful it's such a great movie okay so. We're almost out of time they tell me I have. To go in two. And a half minutes okay good, I the good because this, is perfect way. To end this segment. I wanna, I wanna warn your listeners of a movie okay It's called the Meg and for all intents and purposes. It's being billed as a horror movie and I when I thought. Well When we. Come from and I, found out that it was actually, based on the nineteen Ninety-seven book called. Meg a, novel of deep, terror And it's about a bunch of scientists who find themselves battling a seventy five foot make a ladonna Wait a minute I I don't know very, much to say People remember it it's a it's, an extinct species of shark, which lived lanes of years ago but for still for reasons still unclear to me pops up in this story and begins terrorizing this group of. Scientists, and equally. Inexplicably out of nowhere of massive. Chinese beachcombers oh of course and think of a bad movie Papin multiply that by about fifty and you. Get an idea of how bad the mega to. Be fair that's probably unfair because come to think of it I've seen worse than there is something sort of benign about what the filmmakers thought they might actually be doing, accomplishing with this movie that. Keeps it from being completely reprehensible but. It's just not. Good it's a. Complete unsatisfying waste of. Time it's not scary it's not, suspenseful descript makes no sense characters. And situations just to happen none of which are really connected and then it just ends with. The title card f. I am get it Finn.

"It's just not there. The memory is full and it's full of drugs probably, but it's like he's never actually had to do it. And that is fascinating to watch. I don't know how sustainable it is to watch, you know, but it it's fascinating to watch your point about these people who are basically so rich that they can. Ben reality is very well taken. It's people who look on screen and see a rocket explode and then wiped the corners of their mouth and go back out to a party or. Who decide after one conversation with the Senator that they're going to be the president in twenty twenty to keep the good seed. I mean, the the, the ego is astonishing, but also the central premise of the show is laid bare in the finale if it hadn't been before, which is why is Logan ROY successful? Yes, he good at. Well, he's a monster. That's what he's good at being. He is an absolute unkillable savage and that is not getting an MBA from Wharton that is not having good interpersonal skills. You know, that is not good, putting pin in things and you know, let's let's bounce it around the room for some ideas. It's none of the jargon corporates Fieger any of the things that the people vying to take his seat think are necessary to achieve that seat. You just have to be a monster and KENDALL who, by the way, isn't good at anything really. Yeah, is certainly not that. So that's the futility of this. And you know, that's another sign of a good TV show or good drama when all the characters aren't wrong, you know the things that. It says about his children are monstrous things to say to children. He's never entirely wrong about. He understands them, you know, and one of the most crushing things about the the final scene was it's not just Kendall's overwhelming shame and grief. It is his relief. Yeah, and it is the feeling that Logan even as he waves to his Butler over his son shoulder that Logan is at peace because he's not comfortable with rivals or adult children, he's comfortable with babies who need things, you know he can, which is the save is changing diapers. This this baby boy needed him and he could do that. I do those things. You talked a little bit. You mentioned the three hundred sixty degree levels of accomplishment. On this show, from the way it's shot to the way it's set designed. I wanted to say a special note for how they dress KENDALL in that scene because he looks like a little boy that's been dressed up for Sunday morning, breakfast at a wedding or my God, his little sweater shoulders are so narrow, and he looks like they really they accentuate how much taller Greg is than him in the line. And when the guy comes for him and when they bring him in with Logan and Logan's in there were that crackling fire like he's a fucking Duke from the nineteenth century and everything is for affect right? He's got like his family members this on one couch, he immediately lays it out. And you know, I, I think that. We can discuss the ambiguity of whether or not there was any real father, son affection going on there. I think you're right in that. It's there is that now the world has returned to its natural order. Exactly. Like I am the lion and you're the damaged cub, and you're going to go out to the desert and then you're gonna come back and you're going to have some bullshit job at waist or whatever it is if that happens. But the tier, you know that goes down Jeremy Strong's. I when he starts to explain the situation and he tries to say, well, I didn't do anything wrong. You know what I mean? And and then him know pulling him in and saying, you're, you're my beautiful boy, your number one boy or whatever it hugging him is. That's that's like a, I'm the one who knocks moment. You know what I mean? That is a real moment you're going to remember for years to come. Yeah. I mean, you know. Fuck the Emmys on some level. They're ridiculous, but but if we live in a world where we have them Jeremy strong and Sarah snoop in and Matthew McFadden, and Brian Cox are deserving of them as Kieran Culkin and Allen Rockin for what they what they bring to bear here..
