"Ability. Neal of the editors ask on Tom Cutler, and it is time we want to take you live to ABC news for and updates and they get the latest on the coronavirus. This is a special report from ABC News. The U. S just reaching another grim benchmark in this cove. It 19 pandemic. The ongoing count by Johns Hopkins University now showing more than 400,000 deaths are blamed on the cove in 19 virus. Health experts say it's due to a post holiday surgeon cases across the country. It was just 35 days ago that the U. S reached 300,000 Cove in 19 deaths again. Number of Americans dying so far in this pandemic Topping now more than 400,000. This has been a special report from ABC News. I'm Michelle Franzen, as those long awaited stimulus checks are being delivered to you. And Americans across the country. A new bankrate dot com report finds it Maura than half of us who have gotten those checks or anticipate getting them don't think the money is enough to sustain their financial well being for a month with more on this report. I'm joined by bankrate dot com Chief financial analyst Greg McBride. How did Greg Good morning, Tom. Thanks for having me. Sounds like the stimulus checks are or will be welcomed. But for many of us kind of a band aid approach. Yeah, it's a good way of putting it. I mean, we saw that, you know, a little bit more than half say it's not gonna last them. There are staying there financial well being for even a month, But more than 70% of those expecting to receive one of these payments, said it's important to their near term financial well being. So I think it illustrates the widespread need on the fact that you know that a lot of people that they may be working, but they're making less money than they were there closer to the financial edge. But this one payment in and of itself isn't going to be a panacea. Yeah, less than a month. It would last that Z pretty dour on Dove course. Just 8% plan to use at least some of the money for Nonessential spending. Many are forced to use this for very, very essential household needs right now, and that's one of the things we actually looked at this last March at the end of March whenever the economy was first locked down. And we see a lot of similarities between when we had done this back in March and where we are now and big 8% that say they're going to use it for discretion there, some of it for discretionary spending. That's no different than it was last March. And you know what were the most common uses that people pointed to its paying day to day bills Monthly sent monthly bills. Day to day essentials paying down that boosting savings. Those were the top floor last March. Those of the top four now and there really hasn't been a great deal of shift there. So further underscoring this ongoing need. Many households have also underscoring that is your recent report that said only about 39% of us could cover an unexpected bill. Maybe a auto repair bill or an emergency room bill of $1000, and that's certainly Not something this is going to help at this point. No, You're right. And you know, one of the things is, you know, you look at the 53% that say it's not gonna last a month. You know, skeptically you can say Well, yeah, OK, but the payment is half of what was paid out last spring. But when you combine the 39% that you can't cover $1000 in savings, the 42% of households we found That are earning last now than they were pre pandemic And this 71% that say it's important to their financial well being, which hasn't changed a whole lot since last year. All of a sudden, you know it, you know it. It's right in line with all of us. Desperate economic times were in and of course, the new president inherits them tomorrow. Thanks. It's always great Greg McBride to financial analyst for bankrate.

What to know before the stock market opens Wednesday
"One big question, I think that a lot of people's minds with the news overnight out of Georgia and it looking Maura and Maura, like Democrats will control the Senate along with the House. And then, of course, the White House after President elect Joe Biden is sworn in on the 20th. What does that mean for the markets and for the economy? Well, we've seen some volatility in recent days, just based on uncertainty on duh. I think you know there's likely to be, you know, a few different reactions and play. But, you know, I think for someone investor's standpoint, you gotta continue to focus on the long term and long term. Statistics have shown that whether it's a divided Congress or not a divided Congress. Long run markets go up either way s O, you know, buckle the seatbelt and just kind of ignore short term volatility or whatever political posturing, you know, you know, but maybe maybe happening. That's you know, likely to Buffett markets up and down and short term, but you need to maintain a focus on the long term goals. The other thing is that just from an interest rate standpoint, um you're much of it is really hinged on the said on DNO, not on Congress so, but the Fed pledging to keep interest rates low, with the Fed continuing to buy $120 billion a month and long term bonds. We've got an environment of ultra low rates for throughout 2021. How important was it for Congress to pass that latest round of stimulus that relief package? How important was it for the economy? Huge on do you know? Unfortunately, it probably isn't even enough to kind of get us to where we need to be right now that I think the timetable of mass vaccinations by the middle of the year That's the gap. We need to bridge from an economic perspective businesses and if small businesses in particular, and a lot of households that were really hurting financially that you know for months had been kind of running down. Their their savings, exhausting unemployment benefits. It's you know, it's a welcome relief to have that extended But those unemployment benefits that have been extended till March. You know that's not gonna that's not going to get us to where we need to be So in the short term, it was a huge help T the households and small businesses that were on the brink. But, you know, I think we're kidding ourselves. If we think that that's gonna be sufficient to get us to the other side of this I'm joined by Greg McBride, senior vice president and chief financial analyst for bankrate dot com. With the Democrats likely holding power at all levers in Washington, D C moving forward, there's a likelihood that there will be Maura relief coming. Do you think that will be welcomed by the markets? Yes. Now I think you know the counter play to that is that you know, you're also likely to see some concern about growing deficits might fuel inflation down the road. So and and that can have the opposite effect on the stock market. So you know it's one of those where you no way see this where you know the market could be up Big one day and then it's like you know, the referee comes out from under the hood and says after further review. The call has been reversed. And then the next day the market goes down. Right. So you know, markets that embrace one thing One day, you know, could look at it is, you know glass being half empty the next day, or vice versa. That's kind of speaks to that volatility in the short term that I was talking about, But you know, long term, particularly with mass vaccinations. We get the faster pace of economic growth in the second half of the year. You know, I think that's when when things really, you know, we start to kind of grab a higher gear economically, You know, I think you know that That's that's really you know what's ultimately gonna gonna do? That's really the most important thing moving forward. I mean, obviously, the political situation in D C is gonna have an impact. But it really comes down to the vaccination distribution and how quickly we can ramp that up. Yeah, that's the hub of the wheel economically, you know, and it's you know, I mean, listen, if you you know if you did a rip in Winkle and fell asleep for a few months and then woke up, you know again, it's going to be still the vaccinations and the progress there. That's really going to be, you know, dictating not only the health of the economy, but you know, ultimately what we see as a result. With the financial health of households, businesses corporate earnings in the markets themselves.

Welcome to buzzfeed news o'clock so not that anyone asked me about it going update on the bachelorette just because the best part was being on twitter and it was actually just a ton of jokes about nevada and the votes not coming in but basically that claire was able to find a husband before nevada was able to called the vote audio. Watch the show. And i saw that joke us president. This is a. I'm not gonna go too far into that one because it's an absolutely wild season but let me tell you. My anxiety has never been higher between switching between the bachelorette and cnn wait is cove it shaming all painted. Actually you're in palm springs right now and so were they so funny news i'm actually in the bachelorette next episode the new bachelor bachelorette. My my bachelor's is going to be safer now. Oh my god. She has be my favorite season. Hands down. I mean one hundred percent gay on we love to see it. All right zach. It's time for today's top stories. What you got for us okay. So we maybe finally are going to get a winner in the presidential election. Maybe morning we were coming on there with breaking news. Now in this election of twenty twenty joe biden has pulled ahead of donald trump in the state of pennsylvania the critical state of pennsylvania. You see it right there right now. After days of counting he now leads. Donald trump in the state of pennsylvania by twenty six thousand votes twenty electoral votes at stake. Look at the entire map right now. Joe biden is now leading in enough states to give him more than the two hundred seventy electoral votes. He needs to be the next president. United states we're not ready to project all those states yet but those are states where joe biden now has lead biden as not only ahead in pennsylvania. He's also flipped georgia where he's holding onto a one thousand vote lead as of this recording biden still only has two hundred and fifty three electoral votes projected but he currently has the lead in every outstanding state except carolina and alaska and speaking of president donald trump. He held a press conference last night. Filled with falsehoods as states started to turn blue. Thanks to melon and absentee ballots. It's his first appearance in a few days but listen to the reaction of the msnbc newsroom when they can sit where this is going if you county illegal votes. They can try to steal the election from us. If you count the votes. That came in late. We're looking at them very strongly but a lot of votes came in late. I've already decisively. Won many critical states including victories. In florida iowa indiana ohio. Okay here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the united states but correcting the president of the united states and ari melber. Don't go far Given that you are our chief. Legal correspondent there are no illegal votes that we know of there has been no trump victory that we know of in fact every major news network cut away at some point to fact check or point out false statements and the new york times even use the word lie on its website for headline about the press conference. It wasn't just news networks in papers that called out the press conference. Even chris christie who worked with president trump couldn't get behind what he was saying. I talked tonight now. Not as a former governor but as a former us attorney there's just no basis to make that argument tonight in. Finally we've mentioned georgia earlier and it looks like the state could be headed for a runoff elections when it comes to their senate seats. We already knew that this race. The one between leffler and warnock was going to A runoff they had almost nine thousand people on the ballot. So that was pretty inevitable but this one is the one that we have been following very closely and it looks like The current incumbent. David perdue has fallen just below fifty percent in fact. Let me update this for you at last check. This was forty nine point. Eight seven percent and ossoff was at forty seven point eight two percent. That's about two percentage points between them. And i just crunch the numbers. It looks like there are about ninety eight thousand votes apart. So as those totals keep coming in that that margin again keeps narrowing and it looks like these two could be headed for a runoff in january. We'll keep following it. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that leading up selection stacey abrams who narrowly lost her race for the governorship. Just two years ago registered. Eight hundred thousand new voters in georgia to get the state to this point. These two seats could determine the balance of the senate. So if you live in georgia those runoffs would both take place in january in. There is still time to register to vote. If you haven't yet while stacey abrams she is really i. Guess the The angel of twenty twenty election with all this work is along with black women. I mean we're all we're all looking those exit polls and and and just seeing how much effort lack woman put into this race. I think it's just so important that we value and praised them. Not only when it benefits white people you know. They've been doing this for so long. Because they faced when she narrowly lost that race shoes facing wild voter suppression in georgia. And now they've come back from that registered almost a million new voters. I mean it's it's it's crazy. It's wild it's incredible. And i think what i've taken away from all of this. Is that when we're told as kids at your vote matters. Every vote matters and we for many years. I believe that that was a lie. We are seeing today that that is so so critical in crucial to every election with even more critical and crucial is that people have to register to vote in. This abrahams has really shown us when she lost. She said you know what girls. I may have lost governorship but i will come back wink week. In the meantime people have access. And we're not seeing the payoff there. So thank you say. Abrahams for your. She's also like. I'm going to write a romance novel. And maybe a thriller what. I just found out about that. How does she have the time. I mean we always talk about. There's only so many hours in the day that beyond has like we should do more work. But if stacey abrams she's like saving democracy and writing thrillers. Like god are casey. What do we have in the world of entertainment heading into the weekend. Well i'm just gonna rip the band aid off and start with some kind of harsh news at roker has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He made announcement this morning on the today show. We are happy needed all be here together and spread some love and wrap our arms around our friend out and i know you have some news. Wanna share this morning with everybody. I do after a routine checkup. In september turns out. I have prostate cancer. And it's a good news bad news kind of thing. Good news is we caught it early. not great news is that it's a little aggressive so i'm going to be taking some time off to take care of this And and It's one of those things that it's a little more common than than people. I think realizing how being the journalists that he is shared his journey on the show and use the moment as an opportunity to urge men to get checked especially black men who are more likely to die from prostate cancer than white men..

Richie Tour is here in New York. He became the nation's first openly gay black congressman. The entire New Mexico House delegation is now made up of women of color. So you know, Tio, some of our colors, points about like, how in a pink Pepsi on Twitter about how could be so close? How could trump be re elected? I mean, Should we be thinking about the country's a little more purple than red and blue? I think so. I think that's a huge takeaway here, and that's certainly what we've been hearing kind of going into the rights and Georgia, for instance, like we talked about the purple in Georgia for for a long time now, But no, I think that you know you you bring up those examples and they're so important and they're so positive because that kind of representation matters and it's so important and should inspire others to get into politics. You know, I, um I hope that that catches fire and we see that more places across the country, but I was just struck. You were listening Those names just how they're not confined to a small set of states. That really was something that's happening more broadly. I think that A lesson from this campaign. The last couple of campaigns is how kind of hard work politics on the part of unknown candidates or underdog candidates can really pay off. We certainly thought that in New York City last cycle with Alexandra Cozzi Cortez winning that surprise victory. I mean, that was kind of thing that lit the fire for so many of the other. Often more progressive candidates to do well in yes State House races in Congress races across the country, So I think that you're right and picking up on the trend here and count me among the hopeful who think that it's going to be the start of a of a longer trend yet.

"mcbride" Discussed on How I Built This
"Because you are. In a very, very desirable market and growing very fast and. You've got a really strong brand. Is there a world where you could see an exit like that? I can't call that. In this moment, I'm very attached to my name. I think I can never say Lake Norman Zebra me and Robin and said, here's a chick for five hundred, million dollars. We. Don't know what that feels. That could happen. You know I. I can't honestly sit here and say to you knowing that that's intergenerational wealth knowing just the basic principles of compounding interest at a very low interest rate of what that will do for the legacy of our children our grandchildren, our great great great, and also tropical. For the community that we want to support, you can't rule that out. I can't have it out but I think that we can probably safely say. I mean I think it's hard for us to envision one because our personal is not for sale. So that's a that's a little tricky, but also the brands that we create. Each of those brands has a very powerful. Message behind them and like Andrei don't that don't belong that don't belong to US necessarily we see ourselves as the stuarts the purpose behind them. So if any exit or any acquisition, you know there would have to be some very strange stringent agreements behind that. I don't know that we can really think of any large wine companies that will be. In a position to to acquire what we think those are worth that would be able to pull the mission behind each of those brands not saying that it would never would happen. But I would I would probably say it would be now or anytime soon. I can't stop thinking about. Your Dad and what he would think about all this. How you got to this place Because so much of the story is unbelievable. I mean you didn't know the other sister existed. And then. You know once you're both grown up you eventually meat and then you form this incredible bond. And now you've built this highly successful brand. I just have to imagine that that your dad if he was sitting here right now. He which speed blown away. Well quite quite honestly, and now I'm speaking as a sister who never actually got to know him at all but from what I know of him I, don't think that he would have expected anything less from US I think that he also dreamed very big. You know he came from a very, very small and I say small like five hundred people or something country town in Alabama moved himself to Hollywood and became a part of that scene and an actor and. Everything that was kind of wild going on in Hollywood in the seventies and eighties and You know my my my understanding of him and my interpretation of of him is that you know sky's the limit like you you can and should do you know whatever you set your mind sue. So in my mind and I've thought about that before my mind I. Think I. Don't think he'd be surprised I think that if he was in our lives, he would have expected that we've done at least what we've done. Yeah and I think I think the context of. Our family has family of. His generation you know. Camden Alabama. You know our grandparents, our aunties and uncles our father picked cotton thir- sharecroppers. And I know in their lifetime. Never thought that they would see a black president I know that. So like Robbins said I think you know he dreamed really big expected this of us, but I think the expectation also comes from all of our family. In terms of what they did during the sixties and the fifties and love the things that they fought four so that Robert and I do what we do today. They must be so proud of trust US anti enemy is very proud. You can't go to her house without her pulling out Zine and telling you let me tell you anybody who listens to knock challenge her about her nieces but it is very true in our you know our aunts and our data was the youngest of like twelve. I think. So it's a very, very long generations. You know they grew up in rural Alabama just outside of summer. So you know they did they walked the Edmund Pettus Bridge, they were involved in the civil You know demonstrations and movements, and we're not unaware of of how close we are. You know and how our roots are. So intertwined with you know all of this this history and that we're we're not far from where all of it started so. we're in we were in agriculture. Back in agriculture. Like the history of black people in America is grounded in in Agriculture Andre and I actually have a photo were able to go and visit the the plantation house where our great grandparents were enslaved and where our father was born in the back and in the small house in the back. And I think that you know like his journey in life to move on from a lot of that difficult history was for the purpose of on his children Andrea and I being able to do something like exactly what we're doing. How much of of this story and and the success of this business you attribute to just your hard work and your intelligence, and how much do you think has has to do with luck for St Robin. I was ten, ninety, nine percent of it is our hardworking intelligence. And then there's a small percentage that I think is what people might refer to as luck but I really think it is your ability to recognize opportunity and take advantage of it. Same thing I feel like it's It's hustle. It's hard work, but it's smart hard work. In it's being able to identify opportunities when when other people don't are maybe can't see those opportunities to see it. Yeah, and then I think in terms of luck I don't know if I believe in Luck I. Think I think you. You prepare yourself you're ready and then if if an opportunity presents itself, then you're the right person the right place of the right time. To stay ready. Yup Stay Ready. That's entree McBride John and her sister Robin mcbryde. By the way in addition to the McBride sisters, collection and Black Girl Magic Brand Robin Andrea have launched a third brand. It's a collection of four can't wines AROSA SAUVIGNON BLANC and a couple of spritzers. It's called Pecan and some of the money from sales goes back to a scholarship program for small businesses owned by black women. Robyn and Andre. Two of those winds are dedicated to their mothers and the other to. Their daughters. Thanks.
Interview With Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"Okay so I warned you last time this story is epic right and I am assuming you're here because you've already heard part one of this two part story how two half sisters who didn't know the other existed until both were grown up went onto launch one of the biggest black owned wine companies in the world. But if you haven't heard part one, please stop listening right now and go back one episode and your podcast queue to hear it. As for the rest of you, you've now had a few days to dry your eyes and recover from the first half of the story. Which means we are at the business building part of what would eventually become the McBride Sisters Collection. Now, the thing about Andrea and Robin mcbryde is that despite both growing up in winemaking regions Robin in Monterey California, Andrea in new. Zealand neither sister had any real connection to the industry and neither had any real money to put towards a business. They were also young women of color trying to break into an industry that's often been dominated by older mainly white men. But now this matter they didn't care. They knew that they both shared a love of wine and that they both had a deep and powerful desire to work together. and. There was one other thing. They were motivated by mission they wanted to build a company that would make wine more accessible to disrupt and demystify the sometimes intimidating parts of wine culture. Grape varietals had a tasted regional nuances. Ratings even had a read labels. And when they I dreamed up the idea of starting wine company Robin, the older sister had been working at a corporate job and was married with three children and Andrea, was a college student at USC. I mean. Neither of you had a whole lot of start up cash if any did you Robyn did you I mean you had been working but you also family did you have any savings I mean not match you know it was kind of a nearly paycheck to paycheck. Already got married. We had recently purchased a home, but you know we have brand new twin babies and an older girl. So there wasn't a whole lot of cash available and under assuming given that you're on scholarship at USC in a college student, you probably were broke right I. Mean I got my scholarship checks in on. Where you could get a job and make money you know that was that was what I did. So the the the original idea was it sounds like what you guys settled on was let's just import wine and and Kinda put a label on it was that the initial idea. So we had this grand vision we felt like what was really critically important was that. Incredibly passionate about wine yes. Students of wine but we need to learn the business of wine and you know we could get this license in California, a federal import license that was like fifteen hundred dollars. It was like our total life savings and we could import other people's winds and we started by reaching out to two families in New Zealand, and then we could we could learn the business and we went to them and basically said, you know don't put all your eggs and basket. We think California could be a great market to grow your brands and your winds and we negotiated really long payment term so he could bring in the wine. Sell it. Click the cash, pay the light bill and then pay them back and then. As a part of the process was every harvest. We come back and you guys teach us how to make wine. And you Andrea ahead of some connections in new. Zealand 'cause you're from there and your family, your family farmers. Yeah. So when you first approach these wineries in New Zealand and they agreed to send you wine. How did that work like how many? How many bottles of wine did you initially by and then where did you go to sell them? So yeah so it was crazy. It was at the time at felt like it was an insanely huge amount of wine. In it was a palette which is. Fifty Four I. Like the the minimum of what you can put on a boat. But for us, that was just an insane an internet case of wine. There's twelve bottles. So right it just felt like a huge defeat to be able to get these licenses because you know the the sale of alcohol states is highly regulated. And it's very strict and so just the process of obtaining a license to import seemed and felt like such a huge rigorous process and then and then to convince people. You know to entrust in US and give US product and then to get on a boat and then and then bring it into the port of Long Beach at the time, and then put it into a federally bonded warehouse because you can't just like bring that to your house has to go into

Interview with Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"It's possible. You've never heard of mcbride sisters wine and that you've never had one of their chardonnays or brute rose as or one of their blended reds and it's even possible. You don't drink wine at all. But I'm here to tell you none of this matters for the purposes of today's episode because even if all of the above applies to you, this story will change some of the things you might think about business about fate and destiny about overcoming incredible obstacles and mostly. About. Love. This story is so epic that we decided it needed to episodes. So this week you'll hear part one of how Sisters Andrea and Robin mcbryde built the McBride Sisters Wind Company, and next week you'll hear part to. I'll start with the basics. McBride sisters. Wine is now one of the largest black owned wind businesses in the world. There are roughly. Thousand winemakers in the US and McBride sisters wine is among the top two percent in terms of how much wine they produce per year you can find their wines at most major stores like target and Walmart. And they're also higher end. So about twenty bucks a bottle but still designed to be accessible especially, the people who might be intimidated by wine culture and this is the precise problem. Andrea and Robin said out to solve how to open up the sometimes intimidating world of wine appreciation to people normally shut out young people, people of Color women but also make the wine good enough to attract wine. Snobs. Robin Andrea actually founded their business in two thousand five. And they faced just about every barrier imaginable. They were young women of color with no immediate access to a winery no money no connections. But what they shared was a passion, a deep abiding passion for wine. Something else they shared. A bond that was forged in a unification. The two sisters were born nine years apart both have different mothers but share the same father and for most of their early lives neither sister new, the other even existed. But remarkably both women grew up in wine producing regions Andrea the younger sister grew up near Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in New Zealand well, almost seven thousand miles away for older sister robin was living in. Monterey California with her mom. My mom and our shared father a divorce when I was a baby and so it was only she is. So she never remarried. She didn't have any more children She really honestly didn't even very much. I was aware of anyway she hid it from me. I'm not sure and she didn't have a large family at all. She was an only child also so it was really just her and I together in the world you know we were really. Had a really strong bond and really quite dependent on each other and when you were growing up, you didn't have much contact with your dad right none at all. You know a little context. My mom wasn't thrilled with our father when they divorced and you know it was no accidents that they weren't in communication. It was something that she wasn't interested. In doing so for me from a really young age I was just always you know as a child who has a missing parents I was just always like you know where is he? What's going on? Why is it my dad or my life? You know I had a lot of questions from my mom And she was like, well, you know she always told me like you know he's probably noaa somewhere and she's like I don't want to have any communication with him. She's like. Grow Up and do your thing. Right. When you're eighteen, you know if you feel like you want to start a search to find him go ahead and do that, and so I'd always planned. It was always something that I wanted to do because I did want to figure out who this mysterious person was and hopefully have a chance to meet him. What kind of things were you interested in as a little girl? I was a really weird sort of child and I think part of that has to do with the fact that you know I didn't have like cousins around and we didn't have a larger family dynamics that was really kind of you know alone are little bit. But that had me outs exploring the world's a lot kind of on my own. So you know just really curious about nature and the environment and kind of more of that than people in socializing. Aspects of the world so kind of a little a little bit of a different

That's literally like almost a hundred years old. So music has been in my family for a really long time so. I taught myself to play guitar when I was eleven and I have an older brother. Who's a songwriter? Here in Nashville. Also and I really just you know fell in love with the way that he was able to make music so I decided you know. Hey I want to do that so I decided my junior year of high school. That was not going to apply to colleges and I was just GonNa continue songwriting and see where it took me and immediately after I graduated I moved straight to national so when I first got to Nashville. I did not know anyone. The only person I knew was my brother and it was Kinda hard at first because you know reaching out to people asking them to write. It was kind of difficult. I'm mainly did it. Through social media I would message people on Instagram and ask them. Hey do you WanNa right and I know that. Sounds kind of crazy but instagram? Like honestly national has a community on there and if you are a songwriter and you see other songwriters all you really have to do is just message be like Hey? Do you have a date? Let's right and usually that's how it always happens. I actually just riding with whoever and whenever I can and I have some help for my brother. Because he's a published writer he's had hit songs on the radio like somewhere on the beach by Dirks Bentley and girl like you by Jason Aldean and he knows a lot of writers so I usually ask him sometimes. Can I hate in Iraq with you and your co writer at Pier? And they're always like yes. Sure when we got time.

"We all kind of work on chord structure and melody and lyrics altogether. That's a pretty even songwriting group where we all kind of contributing ideas at the same time so usually. When I'm writing lyric I ended up speaking it. Which is weird. Because I'm a singer but to be honest with you sometimes. I don't have a lot of confidence in my own voice and that's weird but it's hard for me to sing in front of a small group of people if I'm in a room with two other singers. I'm not the kind of person that's going to burst into song. I'm always a little reserved about it. I sing in front of ten thousand people and be fine. So it's just a weird thing but anyway. I always usually say the words one reason is the one I just mentioned and the other reason is because I'm really drawn to songs that sound like conversation. That are really something a person would say so if I say the words as a singing the words it either hits me in a real way or I feel like the needs to be tweaked and I can get a better sense of that if I say it rather than sing it. So bread is a really good singer. If we're talking about a lyric he usually sings it back and I don't play guitar so it's hard for me sometimes to just be able to to accompany myself so it's easier for somebody who has. Atari handed to jump in and seeing the actual line. We had the Melody Melody for the first couple of lines. The choruses remember when we used to be everything they'd ever need. We had them believe in. We were cool to be ever ever need. We had believe we will coup like one minute. They think you're cool the next they don't and so those lines came out of our common experience because of the three of us have daughters so they just came really easy. It was just almost like conversation at that point we talked about. There's a live my God. She's got a car swear she won't go far tonight which. I believed her all my God. She's got a car swears they won't move to natwest shabbily and there's a live. She's just like me when I was seventeen so I don't blame her seventeen. She's just like me when I was seventeen. So on Lamer you start thinking about putting yourself in their position and it's like they're just being teenagers or just doing the same things..

"Then from there I went to another school call to thirty one. Which was another school was bused to an Cardoza high school which is in Bayside. These will all pretty decent schools. See My mother really knew how to work the public school system in New York and and the parents of my program in Red Hook. They know how to work the system. They know we have to show up. You have to do this you have to do. It's a giant bureaucracy and you have to stay on it so she was just very very insistent that we she was always very dedicated to the little flies. Information will come home. She would read it and she would figure out ways to get us into these programs to these schools. Do you think that the education that you got changed your life absolutely? There's no question about it well to grow up with eleven siblings. It's like growing up in a small class Well I hate them. You know. I'm sick of them. Well you know you you You learn to fend for yourself. You learn to take care of what the little bit that you have a little shoes. You're little you have your close in a little pile. You don't really learn to take you become self-sufficient very quickly and you learn how to be the center of attention if you need to be your mother. Want to call it when she was sixty five temple and got her degree in social work. I'm interested in why she wanted to Like pursue more learning well at at thing. Yeah well I will. She likes to be active. She liked to learn. She did get hired at planned. Parenthood and Trenton. It's interesting that she got her job at planned parenthood. She is the mother of twelve planned. Parenthood which is famous for contraception. Well that's true Look we're all walking contradictions? I'm not totally comfortable asking this. But you think she had twelve children because she really wants to twelve children or because she didn't want to use birth control is that okay. Yeah well She said you know after a while. They just dropped like eggs. I mean mommy really liked having kids. She loved having children. She used to say I never. I never get weary of watching the miracle of child growing up it was just. It was really wish she belonged so I don't think that she worried about birth control. I think she worry about feeding the kids when they got older And I don't think she thought that far ahead you know. She wasn't degeneration when she worried about her. You know her attention and all businesses. She worked for Dime Savings Bank and they gave her a little check every week. And that was it and she would cash and so I think she just. I don't think she worry about birth control. You have to remember that generation. They didn't they we. We live from week to week. You know we just we the from one week to the next though. Is it like for you each time? A new baby entered the picture. God's is less for me you know I mean Geez. Can we cut that out please? No I mean you know it was less than me but my siblings and I we loved each other we. We were very close and we had some differences. But we were. We are very busy house. It was this. One was dressed up with football helmets and he was clocking out the door with cleats in this one. There was always a lot going on. I missed that miss this so when all the kids were grown up did that change your relationship with your mother because she no longer had to be taking care of twelve children. Yeah I think so. she was more curious and she had more time to do the things she liked to do. She was always afraid that she wouldn't be able to get out. So you know always kept a nice car. Get outside outside to do things. She always wanted to run. Even when she was a girl she always like to be outdoors and moving around so to the end of her life she was driving around and going the CC so Avatar. The week she died. I mean she. You Know Avatar the film she just was not a person who likes to stay stationary So it it did change more militia were also in the sense that I got to know her as a human being. You know as a person which is quite different than than knowing someone as your mother and I just loved her. I mean she was so interesting. I used to look at her when she got sick. I said you know what people not going to believe. She was my mother. Even I had written the book already. People just won't believe that someone so interesting was my mother and I don't believe it Yeah death with death. Hit me pretty hard but I mean I was prepared but it it. My life changed really quickly. Did writing the book about her. Your memoir the color of water. Change your relationship with her and were you able to ask her things for the book in a kind of interview context that you couldn't have asked her about injustice irregular mother son relationship absolutely well first of all. She didn't want to cooperate. And the only reason why she cooper because I reported around I DID DEPORT. Athenian reported around and say you know the courthouse. Was You know was was blue and had shut us and she said no it didn't it was not blue. Didn't have sodas of such a such a you know she would correct me but It yeah changed more militia because there were things that she couldn't really talk about and she would write it on a piece of paper and you know when shoot talked about being molested. She just wrote it on a piece of paper and put it on the table and then I kind of worked around that. And then sometimes she would. She would talk in the car and then she would get out the car she would want or if she would be so blown away by the remembrances of what had happened what she talked about because she never talked about it and she would just wander into in the wrong direction. She had a lot of things she had to keep secret. Secrecy decided to keep secret. Well she didn't have a lot of choices You know she didn't. My mother was a young Jewish girl. In the South in the thirties and forties and people forget that anti-semitism was a was and remains a huge piece of business in this country and in this world so a lot of secrets were were self preservation. She had to keep secrets. Because if you open your mouth in the wrong direction bad things would happen to you. James McBride has been great to talk with you. Thank you so much.

I know I briefed her on. Everyone's ethnicity backstage scotch-irish when you worked at dairy Queen I worked at Dairy Queen. Sang in this the penetrators this junior college okay for one semester. Because here's the thing. My school was the exact opposite of a college prep school okay. The One ten students yet. The year I graduated there was thirty for kids in the fourth grade of high school. All my good. What are you talking about sports? What they played tennis eight man football basketball and and whatnot but the good news? If you've ever sheedy's athlete has a kid move there. They're GONNA play share. They're going to have to play. Who else will they play? In many years later I was watching football with my husband and I was like what are all these teams are going in and out. There's a defensive team often poor guys out there and play their home. They probably ripped tickets at the front of the stadium to cars still in the field so Q.. And the blizzard has just come out. By the way that's like shaking up the whole Paradigm Buster Parfait was my favorite too. I'm allergic to peanuts. And I'll still eat it twice a year. I don't care air extra hot fudge year of the blizzard off the top of your head. I just remember when I was like in seventh grade. That shit hit the front page. Oh Am I right. It's in that zone right. Yeah a blizzard. You had to do the little curlicue yet to be able to do that before he can. Wait on people you know and did you hold the blizzard upside down. If so did it ever go wrong. I didn't do that. Okay now when you yes I feel bad for them. Go to a dairy queen. We only go on family vacations. There's always twelve of US twelve blizzards and then guys Racist peanut butter. Ah or cream pie so and I might forget pageantry. Just give us the damn during say look good. I don't know why so thick. Yes like dinty Moore soupy with a fork. They really want to dig into this. Blizzard aches extreme extreme. Sorry you're working over at dairy queen. I'm trying to go to college but I have been so overwhelmed and confused how to do it. I was living off campus. I don't even know if they had a campus but I was living in an a little duplex cost me two hundred dollars a month. Just didn't understand like the whole scheduling thing and it was just overwhelming to me so I only Wanna semester and then I didn't go back and I really wish that I'd stuck with it but well I think it worked out everything. Everything seems fine penetrators. Yes the penetrators are only going to wait so long for you to learn intro to biology or whatever now penetrators unfortunately broke up and then you formed another group nope called the double penetrators you wish. Is it called Lotus. Mr Something peaceful you went the other way. Yeah did was saying in a band called the works. The works which I saying you know wouldn't Huston money rate these. These are Frederick Swings Whitney. I didn't know any better. Did you dance with somebody. Did I WANNA dance with somebody with somebody. Eddie who got you always sing in front of our like a great singer art and doing it in hopes that she'll it sounds so bedsheets to fix it. No but I'm trying to get to the ban that you formed where you then met your wonderful husband who I met backstage John On. I sang in a band called Lotus. You're right five nights a week at this club and I had some ended up having some vocal issues and so I had to take a little bit of time away from that band. Plus white ended up doing two nights a week instead of five and the club owner came to me and said by the way you need to do more interaction action with the audience. So I think that we're going to have you give you a wireless mic and have you come out and sit on people's laps safe people. I'm unhatched also you look very unstable onstage. So we put a poll up in the middle. Just feel free Rita's stabilize yourself in a circle and boy you seem to be spits in up there so just why you drop a layer while you're stabilizing yourself crazy so then I decided to put this band together on my own. And that's how I met my husband because somebody said John McBride has personal space so once give him a call. He's just building it and you can rehearse your band there and I said cool so I went and did that John and our band never made it out of the rehearsal space because I was dealing with a bunch of babies like I was eighteen years old and I was the only one that had a car twenty five thirty a year old men and I had to go around and pick them all up at their parents house. Though I'm stacked against me from the get-go but we rehearsed and our biggest stream was to do the Holiday Inn circuit sure so we got a guy an agent from Kansas City named frank literally had a trenchcoat. Oh great it's like very shady character. He came down to see us and he said you know. I've got you this week in the Holiday Inn in Missouri and we were like so excited band imploded. I go to my husband. We're just we hadn't even started dating. He lived in this warehouse where the rehearsal space was. I thought this is is a catch. Now he doesn't even live with his mom was like wow. He had a car so I said to him. I don't know what I'm GONNA do. I think frank is GONNA kill. This happened and John said amid call them all. Call Them for you. I said really because I was so used to being on my own and taking care of everybody and everything and paying all the bills and and I was like he'd really do that you'd call that for. I mean he was like yeah. I'll call him for you and I John Frank this John McBride disband ain't GonNa make it Hong Phone and you're like what are you doing for dinner or not just became really good friends and I would go there after my set finished at the club because I we're still singing in that band and three in the morning and we just talk and hang out and we met and a month later we started dating a month after that we got engaged and out for a year ahead so conventionally terrible plan most people who get engaged on day. Thirty aren't long for this married life. But you're one of these cases if it were worked out because you guys have been married since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight thousand eight.

"You just like at the bar by everyone during one hundred for sire yeah this is never going to add it's like wow you can burn through two hundred grand a lot quicker than i thought you we we as like you know so after i got hot rod while i was shooting hot rod <hes> seth rogan those guys cast me and drill bit taylor which was another comedy and then right as i got got that i got cast in heartbreak kids so it was like suddenly you know going from know movies at all to three movies back to back productions having to negotiate when i was out of one movie and when i could get into the next one and you know and it was just this like whirlwind for these like six months of like bouncing between these three movies and i met ben stiller on the heartbreak kid and yet while we're shooting. He just told me hey i'm doing this movie. Tropic thunder and there's this role would you be interested in this and he gave the script and that was i was a fan of ben's anyone else a fan of his his directing too. I always loved the cable. Guy thought it was awesome and i love reading and i thought that tropic thunder just to me seem like this is exactly the kind of movie i love i. I love that it's violent. I liked it. It's rated r. movies now. All of a sudden it goes from holy crap. I can't believe i'm working to oh jeez. I probably probably need to guide this in some direction. Do you have any notion at that time of like i mean i guess you are so protected because every thing you did you were with huge stars who yea blaming it on me. Were you thinking about that yet. After that first year i started thinking about it because i was just at this point i was i just i couldn't believe i was even getting the opportunity to do something. It was kind of crazy the idea of getting a paycheck to do something like this but as we started doing eastbound and down and we've got that we sold the pilot of eastbound down that same year as well and then as we kind of got back into like zeroing in with jody and and we're writing this it kind of like just reminded me of like i i i wanna do my own thing here and i need to make sure i don't like bruin. All this goodwill just like appearing another people stuff yeah blowing all my material out when i'm trying to do my shit shit. It's like people have already seen all the moves and it's over. You know yeah totally. I'm wondering would you have set-up eastbound like two years later when when we got into it after just from doing this way i just saw the writing on the wall with movies i really did. I was like i had convinced jodi that we should try to sell a t._v. Show he didn't and see what the upside of it was that time and i'm like. I'm telling you man like the way that this movie stuff is going with. I didn't know there was anything with this testing like our ships never gonna work here. It will never never work. Reactively are trying isolate people. Sometimes we make stuff and i'm like that's up to the recipe for success. You know i mean i would watch it. Even with i'd see guys like seth rogan and those guys are so incredible with being able to navigate that testing process like they use that shit as a tool like they're able to like go in and they're or not offended when the audience doesn't respond to joke they're able to like us all that stuff constructively like create something that works and a for us. We were like too precious. We couldn't survive that process. We would like get that criticism and instead of using it and bettering it double down and be like this fucking. These idiots don't know what they're talking. I'm going to let that be played. Klay four seconds long. Yeah we just had we had the wrong attitude for it and i think i saw the right before we shot <hes> the way it was like when ricky traces the office came out to as a comedy he goes like just sitting down and watching that all in one i was like man. This thing is affected me more than anything. I've seen in theaters lately like this is pretty incredible. I loved how small it was that you could sit down and and watch it and kind of like one long weekend yeah to me. I was like this is what we need to do like our comedy would work like this yeah. You're really lucky that you recognize that early on in. It's so true driving home. It was like what's the last movie i fucking loved the movie theater and i can name you. Fifteen shows of watching the last eighteen months that like it was my whole life for that week and fucking love and i can't wait for another thing and it's just crazy crazy how it shifted me personally way prefer television now in in general yeah i mean there's so many things competing for you that i just find like even the best movies that come out. It's like people talk about them for like a week. Yeah yeah and it's just kind of over. It's sad yeah so what's your wife's name. My wife says ghia. I wrote that down ghia but i think i was confused. It would be g <hes> yeah. That's what everyone even. When i first started dating her. I always like would just mumble her name. So i'm like no it's not i. I was with a gale for nine years. <hes> seven of those just abject failure and then started making movies in mani and i started getting to basically realize my dream had had for so many years. It was not easy on our relationship. All of a sudden i had money was very bad at sharing it in a way that did make her. You feel guilty watership but i reminded her. I bought her she hit or like. I'd complain about a bill. I paid and she was like what the fucks wrong with you like last year. You made six thousand dollars dollars this year making hundreds of thousand. You're offended by cable. I just was not good at it. I also think our whole relationship people definitely remembered her more the me she was way better looking than me and smarter and then all of a sudden people remember me everywhere we go and just it was a hard transition was yours easy or did have challenges you. You know how few little challenges but you know part of their thing that was also about being gears like we just never fight. I mean we're one of those like annoying couples that just like your getting pfizer like do do you want the comforter <hes> no. I don't want the comforter like are you sure look. If you went to comfort her just puts comforter on its don't ask me comfort so yeah you must extent of our of our fights so even inches doing this stuff. It's like kia's artist. She's like a painter photographer and <hes> and a chef and she understands this sort of lifestyle and she's self sufficiency can kind of do garrone thing. The logistics of the career are such that you're going away to shoot tropic thunder. I dunno where we get philippines or something oh and quiet okay so she either has to come right if you guys want to be together or i don't know you guys are flying back on anyways. I could see where it'd be. I would feel like shit now. I'm just kind in a little attached to this train and i'm just going wherever this guy's career takes us one hundred percent i mean i always felt that for like she. He would come with me on a lot of those early movies. Everything was happening so fast that we were just kind of like bouncing around. We live together but yeah. There was never any close calls of like. We're not going to do this anymore or anything but it was. It's been harder since we've had kids because then she can't like these getting these movies would be like an adventure. It'd be like her and i would get to go to some other country or some other another place to live and have some kind of cool experience and then once i had kids was like she couldn't just come with me and so then like i would find myself even on the coolest movie being in some weird purgatory where i'm like yeah. I feel a little weird about like going out but i'm also just bored and you know you know. Let yourself self. Enjoy it yeah exactly. I felt that pretty hard core on alien when we did that in australia and it was kind of like a little bit of a turning point for me because i'm like. I don't know if i can do this as a career here. It's like this is kinda crazy to be gone from my kids and my wife for like four months. It's like yeah so much changes that was part of what influence media like get down to charleston. I'm like you know what we can like work down there. Every time i've ever shot anything. We've always had to go back to shoot it somewhere else. We never they're never giving us enough money to shoot things in l._a. So we always find like the tax. Incentives in david green and myself are like well you know that was part of the reason why glitches go try to work somewhere where we don't have to like up route our whole lives and like miss out on so much of what's happening with our kids and yeah illy was pretty tough because that's like a dream job to work with ridley scott got a movie and a franchise like that and i found myself like loving the working experience and then just like but having to do a ton of soul-searching about what i was doing yeah right because does your like <hes>. It's a it's a it's a great privilege to get as many things as you dreamt of so i recognize it's such an enormous gift to be able to find out that maybe your dream in life isn't as important as you thought your says right. That's odd yeah. Were you a huge fan of that. Yeah yeah i i mean that was insane. I mean like you know great in that because you know it's it's fun. When you go like see a comedian. Take that swing and you're like okay how's go. Is he going to be the one who ruins the whole movie yeah totally. There's always that res- you know you say and like i was just like man. I want to be in the zone. I'm i'm not trying to bump the tone of this thing. I got to figure out how to fit into this and then like released like yeah. We cast james franco as katherine waterston husband who dies at the beginning. I'm like fuck doc. I seems to be with franken so hard to shake the idea that i'm just like one of the crew members while you're waiting for wanting to pull a joint awesome and then you also right. There's probably a voice in your head. I don't know if like my favorite comedians that have transitioned into drama is like bill murray's the high water mark where he doesn't pretend he's not bill. Murray doesn't like try to knock down everything interesting about himself for cork of his he like embraces still who he is yet pulls calls it off and so i would imagine partners.
