What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina
"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down

"I did notice that. Any other dramas I wanted to do or even the way people sort of on I said, don't meet strangers anymore evenly this sort of people thought of me are approached me or talk to me or about me there's no considerate. Was it was it was like Connie's shirts wrong Conga and I was like, yeah, I am. And I'm. But they're only I could answer that second question of and I'm only I could continue that that that sense no one else could really Hollywood for sure. No nothing else until dramas I wanted to do other pictures, no WanNa, make it with me. And I remember I. Just. We just had a Levi on i. just had our first son and. My Life was vital. Man I just had a newborn of the woman that I love and want to spend the rest of my life with I'm laughing harder crying I'm happier didn't ever a light is very vital and I'm in my real life. But my work. Feels like. I can do that tomorrow morning just giving script tonight. Let me look out I could do it tomorrow and it wasn't really challenging me and the ROM coms weren't me and my lifestyle was one big green light and you know. It's all green lights. It's all sugaring candy will elevate Taranto to anybody. So I was saying all really want my wish my work could I remember saying this at least I'm looking in the mirror action. Okay mcconaughey. So your life is more vital and true to who you are then your work. Well, it's gotta be one of the other. That's a good thing because. I know a lot of people that their work is more vital than their life. So that's a good thing I said, but Jeez, can I just get some work that might challenge the vitality? Of My life and the man I am in it. where I can be more meat in it. Well those roles. Were not being offered me nothing nope. Not a chance. We won't know Studio Bank you in this drama row or this other all you I had control of Dallas buyers club time, but no one wanted to make it for minority. It. So I decided that if I couldn't do what I wanted to do and what I wanted to do is not being offered to me. It would be prudent for me to just stop doing what I had been doing and what was in the pipeline continually coming to me which were romantic comedies. I called my money manager Said Art Look I'm going to stop doing the only work I'm getting offered and I don't know how long it's GonNa be till I work. Again, how am I doing with my money? He says, you've invested well considerably you're fine. You can take that I remember calling age Jim. Off. At. A Gym I don't WanNa do romantic comedy. I. Remember this conversation he goes great and I go. Why will what do you mean great because? Greg. I. Go. How do you say that? So quick, what are you GonNa say Monday morning when you go into your superiors in the office and say McConnell, he's not doing romantic comedies and McConnell as bringing a nice chunk a ten percent commission into you guys these romantic comedies for years now, and he said the thing to me because I don't work for them I worked for you. That's a that's a good line. The line right so and it was I went to Camilla life and I'd been I'd shed quite a few tears with her going through this you know.

Fresh update on "matthew mcconaughey" discussed on The Tim Ferriss Show
"Which would love to explore to you say, no to quite a lot of opportunities for period of time. It's easy at one point. You are very successful. He became very famous like you said practically overnight. You're being offered. Opportunities you you couldn't have imagined a week prior and you have a string of successes and then you realize well, wait a minute here I might be getting painted into a corner and you start to say, no, you start to turn down say action film opportunities with big paychecks, things like that. was that hard to do other people say that you are doing the right thing and encourage you could you walk us through and just tell a story about that experience love to so this is around I don't remember the year I'm guessing around twelve thirteen years ago I was rolling with romantic comedies. I'd taken the baton from Hugh Grant and was the raw the male lead Ram Com go-to guy from calms are mid. Level Budgets thirty, thirty, five, million, they offer a good front and paycheck to me a go make sixty, million I. mean it. The studios don't have to overspend and spend hundreds of dollars to make them. You get a good female male lead that have good chemistry people love to go escaped to Marin comes for doing well, they were my bank they were what Hollywood banked on me to be in at the same time. I'm living in Malibu learned serve GOP shirt off and the pop routier discovery channels at Goma's documenting this, and I'm like Damn Right documented. This is the life I'm living I. Love It. I worked in earned to get this life and those romantic comedies that I get paid. So Hanley for actually pay the rent at the House on the beach that I live in in front of this water that I'm surfing it. So how is full on shaken hands with gun? Yes. At, the same time. I did notice that. Any other dramas I wanted to do or even the way people sort of on I said, don't meet strangers anymore evenly this sort of people thought of me are approached me or talk to me or about me there's no considerate was. Connie's shirts wrong Conga and I was like, yeah, I am. And I'm. But they're only I could answer that second question of and I'm only I could continue that that that sense no one else could really Hollywood for sure. No nothing else until dramas I wanted to do other pictures no WanNa, make it with me. And I remember I just we just had a Levi when I just had our first son and My Life was vital. Man. I. Just had a newborn of the woman that I love and want to spend the rest of my life with. In. Harder. Crying I'm happier. Didn't ever a light is very vital and I'm in my real life. But my work. Feels like. I can do that tomorrow morning just giving script tonight. Let me look it. I could do it tomorrow and it wasn't really challenging me and the ROM coms weren't challenged me and my lifestyle was one big green light and you know It's all green lights. It's all sugaring. Candy will be no make Taranto to anybody. So I was saying all really want my wish my work could I remember saying this at least Mc I'm looking in the mirror action. Okay mcconaughey. So if your life is more vital and true to who you are then your work, well, it's gotta be one of the other. That's a good thing because. I know a lot of people that their work is more vital than their life. So that's a good thing I said, but Jeez, can I just get some work that might challenge the vitality? Of My life and the man I am in it. Where I can get to can be more meat in it. Well those roles. Were not being offered me nothing nope. Not a chance. We won't know Studio Bank you in this drama row or this other all you I had control of Dallas buyers club time but no one wanted to make it for minority finance it. So I decided that if I couldn't do what I wanted to do and what I wanted to do is not being offered to me. It would be prudent for me to just stop doing what I had been doing and what was in the pipeline continually coming to me which were romantic comedies. I called my money manager Said Art Look I'm going to stop doing the only work I'm getting offered and I don't know how long it's GonNa be till I work again, how am I doing with my money? He says, you've invested well considerably you're fine. You can take that I remember calling age Jim. Off. At a gym I don't WanNa do romantic comedy I remember this conversation he goes great and I go. Why will what do you mean great because Greg I go how do you say that so quick, what are you gonNa say Monday morning when you go into your superiors in the office and say McConnell, he's not doing romantic comedies and McConnell as bringing a nice chunk a ten percent commission into you guys these romantic comedies for years now and he said the thing to me because I don't work for them I worked for you. That's a that's a good line. The line right. So and it was I went to. Camilla. And I'd been I'd shed quite a few tears with her going through this you know. My feeling fraudulent, my work Do I feel a lack of significance in my work I feel like you know is it okay to be feeling? You know this I mean like I said, I'm the I'm do as we said earlier I'm I'm connor going running downhill. Why would you sabotage not doing the work you're getting off what would you can get paid so Hanley to do it. But she understood that I that my soul was shaken and needed some recalibration and that the work was doing wasn't a true sort of expression of who I was in my life and I was told her I said get hold out for some work that can challenge the vitality of the life that I'm living with you and our suddenly by. And she repeated the lines to me. She says, okay you're GONNA get wobbly. You GotTa Work Matthew and you love to accomplish. You're GONNA get wobbly.

We don't know how long this last how long will be in this we should call it a desert halong. This'll be desert she has been four GonNa do this if you're gonNA, do this. We're. Not. going. To half asset. She repeated my dad's line to me. And I went yes ma'am gave her a hug tears on her shoulder and we said starting today no more ROM coms. Well. Rom Com offers came in.
A Critique of Dallas Buyer's Club
"Let's. Let's Talk About Dallas Buyers Club. I first and foremost all the triggers. Goddamn because everything you thought you knew about this movie you were right and then there's more. There's The the TRANSPHOBIA is there from the characters. It's enacted characters but it's also just that kind of trans-phobia where it's tucked under. Oh, it's actually homophobia but that's because they don't know what to do with someone who presents in a way that is not stereotypical. To one gender or another. and. Yes. So look up triggers for this movie. There are so many that I don't even feel like sitting down and listing them but look them up before you continue to consume this podcast and before you decide to watch that movie. That said, had you either? Have you seen this movie before we went to the podcast first time? For a first time on that radio to. See what I did there. On brand very unbranded. Yeah. It was my first time too. I definitely knew it. As you said, for all the reasons that I knew, and then there were more reasons that I was glad I did until now. Oh Yeah so This movie I have to say because I tried to as much as I'm trashing it as much as I'm like Oh this all this I really wanted to like this movie I went in wanting to like it I remember talking to a friend about this movie because I refused to see it. So I was like, why are people praising jared leto wire people praising his portrayal of Now, I can't remember the name of Rayon why and I actually had to coax it out of a friend because. This was a friend that I respected their opinion on and they basically said they were like, well, you don't actually want to know you wanna be mad and it's like, no I respect your opinion i. am asking you why people care what is it about this helped me and what this friend said to me was that the portrayal of someone who is going through a having aids being HIV positive and then having AIDS, and then dying from another disease which. It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point.

Texas Hospitals Battle COVID-19
"John Henderson President of the Texas Organization of rural and community hospitals. Thank you so much for talking with us. so tell me what if things been like for you? With covert nineteen, so in the early days of the pandemic are hospitals started telling us they were having a terrible time getting p. mask, and gloves and gowns enhanced sanitizer, and so we kinda became a procurement shop for our rural Texas, hospital and most of those supply chains that we would normally lean on were turned upside down, so we were working with nontraditional vendors and middleman like what were some of the channels that you were reaching out to? Your last. Well. The craziest one was a friend of a friend connected me to a guy he knew that had. Literally smuggled them across the Mexico border in had mask in A. Warehouse in east, Austin, and so. I went down there, and he offered me a Tequila shot and we worked out a deal. And from what I understand like distribution, you say destruction, but that was like you in a car. Well maybe not formal distribution, but twenty or thirty friends of ours that had called our office, saying. Hey, I'd love to help you make deliveries. Kind of created this daisy chain of volunteers across Texas where you know, we could get something to abilene and then a friend in Abilene. Get it on up to Lubbock Grammar out west Texas and the Permian Basin. And, then as we kinda develop and got better at it. We were introduced to people who wanted to help. A A really good example is a lady I met named Camilla all this who I didn't recognize the name, but she's actually married to Matthew mcconaughey. And they were great about getting US donated. Supplies, mcconaughey! Yeah. Hey. Yeah And I didn't realize when she said she had a driver ready that it was matthew with A. Truck full of mask ready to go to. Hospitals. And she said I have a driver. Eddie and it was her husband Matthew mcconaughey, who was like liver masks. If you need me to the threat, it's amazing. Talk to me a little bit about sort of how things have changed since the early days as we talk today, most areas of Texas. Are. Reporting Trans that are a little bit problematic and scary. Right because from what I've read and what I understand like Texas was at a a pretty advanced stage of reopening, and then his actually like walked it back. Early on we were will behind other states especially New York, in thought, we managed it fairly well. Most of that worst case scenario forecast did not materialize in March and April, but it certainly has since the Memorial Day holiday I think that actual coca cases in hospital admissions are like four times higher than they were at the beginning of June and I think for the first time over the weekend. We were reporting more than eight thousand cases a day. So it's it's all headed. Definitely headed the wrong direction, and now we've got a statewide mask. Order Oh so everywhere you go. You have to wear masks outside. Everywhere you go in counties with more than twenty cases, which is almost everybody. We're working to try to secure a stockpile ventilators that we can distribute around Texas you know as we see those flare ups and can help them deal with it. The thing that's actually a little bit scary to me is that the urban areas are at or near capacity which means that the rural hospitals are having to keep patients that are a little bit more acutely, ill or higher level of need than they would normally keep, so we're? They would, they would transfer someone who is really sick to a larger urban hospital, which might have more equipment resources. Things like that. That's exactly right. And they're doing that fairly well, but. In, they've got bed capacity. They're just stretched when it comes to staffing, primarily I think the state of Texas actually has sent twenty three hundred nurses to South Texas to try to help them because the hospitals her. You know bursting at the seams. There's been a lot of coverage about the difficult financial situation that a lot of hospitals are in right now. The things that they traditionally made a lot of money off of elective surgeries and clinic visits have been canceled and they've had to make big investments in equipment and staffing other things to prepare for the pandemic rural hospitals operate on a really thin margin, compared to other hospitals often barely make a profit with this surge coming in Texas. Are you worried that some rural hospitals won't make it? Oh, yes. I was worried in April that we might have a dozen rural hospitals close in, I would get multiple calls every day from rural hospitals. CEO's that were saying. We're on the ropes. You know we didn't have any cash and we were maxed out on credit before this thing started. Now we've got you know. Shutdown orders, clinic, visit, cancellations, and no elective surgeries or procedures in. We aren't going to make the next payroll soccer. We're GONNA close. Thankfully in April. They got some significant federal stimulus money that aimed ten billion dollars nationally that rural hospitals and rural health clinics that single funding alone saved half a dozen rural Texas Hospitals Oh. And so a concern of mine as we look at the whatever the next stimulus package be that if if conditions don't change and that doesn't move, then we could. Have you know more rural hospital closures. You could make an argument that like well we. We should concentrate our resources an urban hospitals and they can have like the very best everything. People can just get transferred. Well, that's that's the argument that urban citizens matter more than rural citizens and I believe every Tex Mex and some of these rural communities are literally. From a larger community, so I think I think Cova has actually been a pretty stark reminder of lots access to healthcare in hospital. Capacity Matters. you know I, I know that we wish we had some of hospitals available that have closed in the last few years. I'm wondering I. Don't know just like what your? Takeaway from this whole thing has been. Well. I think it's probably the most consequential six months in my lifetime, and and maybe the most the next one hundred days. We'll be as important as anything we've been through. A since April,

Female Comedians Unite
"Hollywood's top comedy. Actresses are uniting in saying they are sick of being put in a box. Tiffany Haddish told the Hollywood reporter that she had to turn down multiple projects as a block comedic actress. She says she gets roles that are overtly sexual or roles that had her play a mom whose child gets hurt in some way. Way And she's fighting for justice. She mentioned this during a virtual actress roundtable. That also included Jamila Djamil Jamila said she's always given scripts to play a character who has too much sex. Robin said the writing is often so bad for comedy actresses. She's resorted to writing her own. Do you think that men and comedic roles feel the same way, or is this? Just a one sided argument. No I think you've you asked Matthew mcconaughey Hey why his career went away did it's because those were kind of the only roles that men had to get as well men who were players, men who still had roommates in their forties men? who were Douche bags? That never got out of Frat life. I think that's comedy is all about is lagging at at those things in life, but I think men do get them as well. Okay, I I was conflicted about this I I'm not a comedic actress and I actually thought the opposite I thought that women who were put in comedic roles were usually sort of the best friend role or the woman. That's like maybe made to look as unattractive. Unattractive as possible to be as funny as possible, so I didn't realize that women who were being put in comedic roles. We're supposed to be overtly sexy or things of that nature so to hear this actually quite surprised by it because I just didn't view it that way. Yeah, I think there's typecasting when it comes to a lot of actors whether it's you were maybe a nerdy role in one movie. Then a lot of people see you as oh. That's going to be the quintessential nerd. If we look at Michael Sarah or Christmas, plus like they are also typecast in their own way, so yeah, I feel like it falls on both sides, but do we feel like right Impro-? No I wouldn't ask for it to improve what I would do. is either a write my own scripts and come up and find content that is right for me as an actor or an actress or I would just pass those things up because what happens is if you pass it up. Another actress gets the job, so let's not have those roles diminish. Let's see those roles go away. Just pass them to another actress. Who's just starting her career? Everyone's not in the position, obviously to pass roles and I think you do have to maybe do roles in the beginning of your career, like for example, even just with my own career right I started on a reality show. That wasn't my end goal but I did that to get to where I was now. There was obviously no guarantee in that out, but luckily it has women who wannabe actresses, whether it's serious actresses or comedic actress, or both start their career out and have different intentions are willing to do different things than maybe they get. Get a little bit more famous, or they get a little bit more successful, but I think what you said. Aaron was very valid and I don't know if it's a comedic actress. Issue I think shirt. People just get typecast in general I think the bigger conversation I feel like when you're casting one role, you do it sell well. People tend to want you for different kinds of roles that are similar to that. Yes, yeah, exactly and like what you were saying just in like you know if you don't want those roles, let's not eliminate them. On them, and these women who are part of this roundtable seem like they're fortunate enough to be able to pass on those roles that they don't WanNa, take on I will play the funny gay friend. Anytime Billy. Porter is not

S. government and the Boston Marathon bombing obviously we all know April fifteenth two thousand and thirteen this happened your first book on this came out in twenty seventeen called maximum harm here's my question for you on the book you've gone Hollywood between twenty seventeen and now you've been wildly successful you've got a series on TV that's been picked up again you got another series in production why is this one stick in your Craw so much that even though you had so much success you still got to keep working on this thing we don't funny I tell the story all the time about how the family things you're rich when you put out a book and like the Christmas list gets bigger but I don't next them harm for five thousand dollars and re publish it for one reason and one reason only it's because I think we deserve the answers and somebody who is standing at ground zero you know I was in please bureau chief for nine eleven I had a front page that day on the New York Daily News it was burning all of lower Manhattan it's a day I will never forget I lost a lot of friends among the three hundred and forty three firefighters and twenty three and might be detox and thirty seven Port Authority police officers in the in the hundreds more that have died of the droga illness which nobody ever talks about even as we talk about clone of ours you know I think that we are deserving of answers to this day he be there people tend to give all the still haven't been brought to justice there are still how would classified records about the Saudi connection to nine eleven and I feel like we keep I actually read the nine eleven commission report and if anyone else reddit or anybody in Congress read it or any of our lawmakers took it seriously the marathon bombing whenever it happens and I think that we are deserving of the real answer is there are some very glaring questions that you and I talked about before number one the government said in court records they said during the night trial that they don't believe the brothers built the bombs they don't have any physical evidence linking them to the building of the bombs which raises the immediate question then who the hell did it and why are we looking for that person and then you turn to Topsfield Massachusetts fifty five days after the Boston Marathon bombing and you find out about this wacky doodle named Daniel Morley who told his mother he had something he had to answer to god for his mother told the top feel PD that he was friends with him on the night of October when the police bomb squad Topsfield PD they do a great job securing the scene they got permission to search the home all the time the FBI showed up I know where nobody who called the feed which is a quote that one status as one other that night and next thing you know despite the fact that nearly every component to the pressure cooker bomb that was detonated seven years ago was found in the kids back from the FBI thinks and take over the case and where do anymore we now well the last time I saw that cute he was driving for the ride when his original charge was beating up his mother and her elderly computing how does that make sense have your guy that had all of that stuff and it's it's never prosecuted have you ever talked to him I tried to get Bruce gellerman his good friend of mine W. B. O.

Internet memes are the new coronavirus coping mechanism
"I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with US special guest abroarall hedy bright. You've got this fantastic story. Which initially we wrote off as a fluff piece because it's Internet memes and means you're so disposable but there's actually like a series star behind such a fascinating story behind it kind of breaks out. What exactly where. Exactly how our Internet memes Being designed or created as a reaction to what's going on with crowbars absolutely you're right. It's it's true that you can kinda push off these things that we see on instagram and twitter ads. Just these these things that people joke about but it turns out that means can be a very healthy way to cope with stress and anxiety. And there's a lot of stress and anxiety right now. Given the krona virus pandemic psychologists actually saved that means our healthy way to cope with anxiety because humor is something that we have used as humans to cope for ever so this is something that people did during the world. War is something people did during the civil war. They found ways to incorporate humor into magazines and posters and journal entries and this is how we process things and make light of them And so it means are kind of the modern day way that we do that we take a very serious situation like quarantine and then we find ways to make jokes about that like. I'M GONNA put on my living room pajamas as opposed to like my bedroom pajamas. Like all the ways that we find You know the ways that we find humor in kind of the serious reality of the world right now so this is actually something. That is very help healthy for a lot of people to use a time like this. Yeah I love Sort of the the quick kind of walk back through history of how humorous played a role right. And it's fascinating to me that you know that the civil war civil war era was largely considered the age of practical jokes article. Joking which you know when you're watching those. Ken Burns documentary like I don't it. It's weird to Kinda like juxtapose. How the Civil. War's been presented with the fact that people were playing practical jokes on each other. Which boggles my mind. But you're it's a great point. We've we've long used humor as a way to deal with extraordinary circumstances and this is a particularly extraordinary circumstance absolutely and this is something that I spoke with Dr who runs this me McCowan. And he was saying that you know sometimes a laugh is the only bit of sanity that you have in your day because when you don't have that ability to kind of diffuse that tension and a few that anxiety like what else do we can't somebody. One of the psychologists I spoke with Dr Andrew's was saying that this isn't a scenario where we can kind of band together and be like okay. You know. We're all facing this crisis together. Let's go and volunteer drives at helped people. We can't even come together. Well if we have to stand six feet apart from each other we have to social distance we have to be essentially isolation from one another and the only way we can really reach other is through the Internet and so when we are communicating through the Internet. One of the best ways we can make light of a situation and one of the best ways that we can connect with. People is with humor because when you relate with somebody when you can share a joke with somebody that's really what creates those connections and those connections are so critical right now at a time when people really crave social interaction. Exactly this is an audio podcast right now just given our limitations but as wondering if you could run through some of the more memorable means that you ran into and of course reporting and I know this isn't a visual medium but You can talk to your best. Describe the the memes that the great. Yeah absolutely there's wine with Matthew mcconaughey where he's like smoking a cigarette and he's really intense looking at phone and then the caption says me reading about current virus thirty seconds after. I swore I wouldn't read about corona virus anymore and it just really captures like like. Why am I doing this? Why can I not put down my phone? Why can I not step away? You pledge that you're not going to do it and then you do it again There's a lot of good distracted boyfriend means where it's like. Yeah yeah look over. And it's like oh two weeks according t and you're looking over and it looks so good and then like work is in the background trying to juggle. Like hey headway how do I do this There's there's one that was kind of a little bit on the on the darker side. It was a picture of a baby. And you know how like sometimes people will have a sign that says like my first Easter. My first Christmas it said my first pandemic and I was like wow. That's funny. It's extremely dark. Extremely funny exactly are fascinating but even even dark humor psychologists. I spoke with April. Former saying they'd even dark. Humor can be a healthy way to to cope with these things. And so you laugh and you feel like slightly like. Oh my God. This is awful. But then you're like you know like it's the reality. We have to make some

"I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big picture conversation show about some of our most fascinating movie stars. I am joined as I have been recently on these career arc episodes by pair of thoughtful deep and possibly very high career. Archaeologists Amanda Dobbins and rob her villa. Hello, guys, high San all, right? All right. All right. Thank you. Rob someone had to do thirty seconds in case, you couldn't tell from Rob's beautiful impersonation. This is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go ahead.
