Bam members. No, he saw you on H B on TV show. So that that's actually a good area. Because so you and I were both raise which users, and and one of the things that I love about your story is is is kind of finding a balance between gospel. And what we call secular, right? Not only in our art. But in our lives because life is sticky and messy and complicated and the gospel. It's really nice to be nice, and sweet and friendly and only thing about nice things. How did you find that balance? Not just creatively. But in your life. I do find. Yeah. Mix mix. You got didn't mean for us to just not enjoy our lives. You know? I. How do I put this? I I've all pops didn't want us to hear our in be music when we were growing up, but I always had a quarter to put an jukebox. And I didn't think I was messing up anything. I was doing all I was listening to James Brown and energy. James and because they had so that's right. And they were they won't they won't sing and garbage. Right. They were singing love songs songs that just melt your heart, and I was young girl and I wanted to dance. So I never and then my father after you. He's started changing he started being more loose. I saw that started to will too little. And he started saying that gospels just true. That's right. And if the music true, then it's cost. That's right. And I think that's really beautiful gospel truth, and and and. Oh, I'm an old mine was that I called in the microphone. Oh, that's okay. All right. And give it to the rock and Roll Hall of fame. When we're raising the imagine especially earlier, I in the sixties suppose, there's even more section singing about hanky-panky. Let's do it again. I mean that if you can imagine very salacious song at the time, as it was you guys, do, you know, when we record it do it again that was not on my mind. Is that right? Would not didn't cross my mind. You know, when I when it hit me when George Benson did it, and he came to Chicago, and he came on on on news. And he said, well, another some other people did disown, but they were talking about another thing..

"Pete's picks. We're gonna do manage today. Men. These I don't know if you guys know this are you in the market. Hey, are you in the market for some new undies? Sure. You are. Are you tired of your underwear making sad? Like one of the first things you do in the morning. Picking up some sad raff not well fitting terrible. Holy H. O L E. Dash y underwear. Yeah. That's what I was doing. I had I realize I'm grown, man. And my underwear was not living up to my own standards. And I wanted some new underwear, and I had heard of me on these from other podcasts, and I was like, okay. And I just went on their website do the complete overhaul both me and Val and just bought dozens of pairs of their wonderful underwear based on faith. I mean, not just blind faith BuzzFeed wrote about them that quote, they feel like actual heaven against your skin. We're going to assume heaven is really soft in this context. Ask men also said they feel like silk drenched in hand lotion. I like that one. They're so soft. They make Bob Ross voice sound like Gilbert Godfrey does that make sense. Oh, I understand. Bob. Ross sounds like they're so soft. That's yeah. I think I get that one. I didn't write that one. You understand what I'm saying it really really soft, and they fit really really well, actually just went upsize. I run a little small. So I I went to two XL, and those are even better fitting. So now, I'm even more enthusiastic about me on these. They're made from micro Modell fabric, which is three times softer than cotton. Take that big cotton and the best thing other than the fit and how soft they are is they're fun. Cool patterns. They have Star Wars patterns. They have weird pirate patterns have penguins, and fireworks and Halloween. I just like throwing on something fun colorful that feels great on my skin and fits perfectly every morning and starting my day off that well, they also make onesies and lounge pants made of the same Aotearoa. Yes, they make one these and their incredible. So for our listeners, I reached out to them. These are actual products. I actually used not just random ads..

"Now, it's just now all the screws have been tightened all the little tweaks page edits have been done. I'm about to do the audiobook next week. It's an incredible thrill to be done with it. I'm so proud of it believe it or not. Their stories and thoughts and feelings in this book that I haven't shared on the podcast at least not in the same depth. So if you like this podcast because obviously about comedy God, you will like this book. Oh, yeah. I forgot. This is also the first podcast. I've done since the news I've known for a little bit crashing isn't coming back. So if you jonesing somebody read my book and was like, oh, this is sort of like a breakdown of what the fourth season would have been. And it sort of is about that time in my life. What happened after the open Mike seen after my divorce and all that stuff? So if you're sort of curious about what happened immediately at the end of crashing that's sort of what the book is kind of an interesting observation somebody made, and I just wanna say that I feel very grateful and very very proud. And a lot of joy when I think about crashing. I think it's sort of been throwing people for a loop. Just how positive I've been feeling about it. If you watch the finale you saw that it wrapped up. Really really well incredibly well, in fact, so much so that we kept copped accidentally calling at the series finale when we were shooting at me and Judy Miller and Orrin and some of the other producers and writers we have accidentally calling it the series finale, which was kind of a Freudian slip. It was almost like so such a perfect ending that it seemed like it was the ending. So when you watch it three three nice beautiful seasons there. It does kind of tie up everything in cross every t and all that sort of good stuff. Cross every affects. So yeah, I forgot to sort that. This would be kind of our first time talking about it. But I feel wonderful. Thank you for all the love. You can watch it anytime. That's the other great thing is gonna live on forever on HBO go and HBO now, which they're streaming services. Obviously we worked really hard. It's been four years. That's what I was telling people that it sort of feels like a graduation graduations can be sad, obviously. But there's also just sort of like a beautiful timing out of it. It was four years of my life. We told the story about a struggling comedian. And and I think we think we did that really well we did that really well and season four was going to be about breaks and all that sort of stuff. And I don't know. I don't know how well that would affect in the show it almost as more perfect ended here. If you the book the book picks up where the show leaves off. So yeah, thank you for the Levin, the support and all the kindness that I saw online about crashing and. And thank you to judge japa- towel, obviously who was involved in every single frame of that show every line of dialogue every piece of wardrobe went through his approval every story line every joke. He was in the edit. It was incredible working with one of my comedy heroes. And to be able to do this with him was a dream. Come true. So please watch it anytime you want now, I don't have to be pleased watch the path watch it whenever you want watching five years. It doesn't matter. If you want a new show, please watch crash, please watch crushing and please comedies. Okay. So many flags. I wanna give shout out to our Pete's picks..

"During the break she's one of my lifelong heroes seriously of enjoyed her music since she was with the family band the staple singers in the seventies and you know after the staple singers disbanded all both of her sisters and her father passed away she's the last staple and she's enjoyed a career renaissance in her seventies it's really remarkable jeff tweedy the frontman for the band wilco began who's a fellow chicago and like mavis began producing her albums this decade and they've taken off and now at age seventy nine she's playing festivals he does bonnaroo i mean she's really enjoying a late career renaissance it's been wonderful to see she's a a a civil rights icon in this country she and her family her father was great friends with martin luther king they were the opening act for some of his speeches in the sixties and she's just lead one of the most remarkable lives you'll ever imagine how so like what what are some of the specifics of her story i don't know her story although i find it pretty cool it someone gets to get a fountain of youth late in their life where the respect comes back circling around and you get it's why you know it's in sports these hall of famers are so moved five years after their careers because the absence of it while they were doing it they weren't enjoying it and appreciating it when it's gone you're like oh i should have appreciated that to do this or across this many decades into now beat someone that the young people are are i don't you know bequeathing there saying here we like what's the female equivalent of nineteen someone young people have said no it's cool to be with her it's it's cool to be around this kind of town oh yes some of the bills she's on i mean when she plays a festival like like bonner or some of the others you know it's all these contemporary acts and then mavis staples i mean it's really it's it's just weird to see the bill of some of these shows and you know the the age we're in now not to get political but mavis recently said it feels like the sixties again meaning some of her outspokenness on civil rights and racism and all that stuff is very contemporary unfortunately because of some of the time you know what bummed me out speaking of that speaking of bummed me out watching those nba awards and seeing oscar robertson up there and and you can see kareem and bill russell and these dudes were legitimate social activists at a time we're in this country and in sports it was much harder to be social activists than it is today and those dudes looked old like really old bill russell flashing the middle finger and oscar robertson and and and they are and kareem abduljabbar no but the reason i bring it up yes they are old but the idea that they're still having to say some of the same stuff and seeing these pictures for vitality you know worn down too old men who are tired or bitter or still in pain at the end and they're still saying some of the same things they were saying fifty years ago as legitimate social activists like that were has to infuriate bill russell like hey i was saying this the fairies fairy hurt them fine yeah i mean that's a lot of the theme of of what mavis is about right now is that it's all come full circle not in a great way where some of her preaching is now very vital again and that's led in part to her career renaissance she's check her music she's had three or four albums this decade and she's well worth.
