Hello and welcome to this day and esoteric. Political history from radio topa. My name is jody adverts this day june twentieth nineteen eighty six news. Reports are starting to emerge about the death of basketball player. Len bites the night before bias had died of a cocaine overdose. This was just a few days after he'd been drafted by the boston celtics and was poised to become an nba star. Maybe even a main rival to michael jordan. Why is this a political story. And not just a sports story while because len bias. That happened right in the middle of a moral and political panic about cocaine and crack in this country and by the end of the summer congress had passed sweeping anti-drug legislation that in effect gave birth in many ways to the modern prison industrial complex and all sorts of punitive drug laws so here discussed by his death and the political ripple effects still being felt to this day are as always nicole. Hammer of columbia and kelly. Carta jackson of wellesley. Hello hello jody. Hey there and our special guests. This episode is the director and producer. Adam mckay I've mentioned a few times on this. Show that i worked at that on this series called death at the wing which looks at the intersection of basketball politics in the eighties. And we did an episode online bias. We've been waiting for this news. Hook state hooked to have adam on but adam mckay founding member of uc. Be in a director of anchorman and step brothers and producer succession director of the big short. I could go on and to welcome to the show. Thanks for doing for having me pleasure to be here l. I mean under this tragic anniversary. I wouldn't quite saint pleasure but did so adam. I'm curious you know you. You might be shocked to hear that the audience for a podcast called this day nestle turk political. History is not the most sports savvy crowd. So can you give us a sense of how big of a deal and bias was sports wise and then we'll get into the political ramifications. But i mean he really is one of the great. What ifs in sports history right. No question about it. I as a kid. I lived in worcester massachusetts up 'til about fourth grade and that carried over to me being a celtics fan into college And then eventually. I stopping a fan of any team and i'm just a fantasy basketball now but i was a freshman in college and i woke up and i heard this story and i had like one of those starter. Jackets of the celtics. Hard core celtics. Fan and i heard this story and it i i didn't saab but i teared up and for like three days was in a fog. A depressed fog and as a celtics fan. It wasn't just for celtics. Fan was the entire basketball world. it was d- story. It's hard to describe what a talent. What an amazing player. Len bias was like just to say a lot by the time you get the nba. Everyone's really good. This guy was a notch above a notch. Good he was he was in that zone of jordan and what he meant for the celtics to the celtics aeging battered team at that time as nineteen eighty-six and he was their entire future So it was. It was titanic. It was the news story. Espn was still relatively new. At that point everyone.

"A different way to play it. It's a we can lose interest. Why not jackson for the grizzlies. Play john morad off ball. Jackson comes back. He's hurt right now but when he comes back let him play. The point. haven't played the point. I mean he's basically doing it for the nuggets right now. Not yokich choice. Sixty five year old band. The salads like deadly is a guy who's definitely smoked between quarters. Right you know he. He retired being a janitor finished ford and even just solve math problems. And you're like those are middle school harvard. Those are middle school problems impressive. But it's cool that you did it did. It's not that art gasoline scaling. Trying just gave us. The people are talking about him as the mvp this year people are legit saying yokich right now. Leads the mvp voting. I think he is right because he got hurt because at before he got her doing shaquille o'neal with a three point zero three point. Shot like to me. My favorite thing is like when he goes to pass and like a guy runs towards the end. He just has the ball in his hand. It's almost like a globetrotter trick. And then he and shoot. He's he's fine. He trash talks like to me. You want the knicks to be good so that mix like you okay. Could you imagine a next sixers playoff series off just a nominal unbelievable to me that went and really do it. Because rj barrett has now officially become a player. He just hung tina. You got julius randle. Who's east of a point forward. Derrick rose my god. I couldn't believe it. I was like off derrick rose because he's not having to do everything he he's still guile yes robinson comes back. You gotta rim runner rackets guy who could get fan. I feel like they need one more guy. They drafted like these rear point guards for way too long. Yeah quickly quickly as more of a score quickly as okay. Who's the other. There's another guy who's like a great three point shooter that that bullish. He's he's perfect for that team. Perfect for that team. I don't know what they're gonna do with alford payden alfred. Payton's a man without a team guard can't shoot a three alfred peyton to me. Sounds like a civil rights activist in nineteen sixty one. You know what i mean. We stood on the alfred payton bridge. He yeah but i mean but like those guys who like you have to really know the nba to know who those guys are to me. I'm just. I always get excited in any sport and i don't know if you do this to when franchises that have been down like claw their way back so the phoenixes of this world mike okay. I mean chris paul. You can argue that. He can't finish but every team he's gone to. He has put them in kim position. Yes he's like. How old is he now. Thirty five sex. This is still an all-star point card. I mean it's crazy. What he's doing by the way. Mikhail bridges went to my high school yet. Did grace holly high school outside of philadelphia. Yeah he's got that crazy. Wingspan likes six six wingspan. He's really good defender. He is no joke. I mean the son's really could take out a team in the playoffs. Because because they have that pecan roll. They've got booker. And they've got the guy who can score eighty eight him discourse seventy points in eight and and now with chris. Paul is like a guy who can take relieve pressure off booker. So booker doesn't have to create. he can kind of create you know off the dribble or literally. Take his shot and aiden. I mean to me. It's like you've got you literally put together the perfect match of old and young and these guys so them being great and then in the then the east kind of version of that to me. Are the atlanta hawks. Because you've got trae young. The clint cappella move over there to me was like oh my god you go. Well i i was kind of like. Ubs about it. Just because i feel like there's a lot of guys like well it turns out there's not a lot of guys like a john collins. She got her. The kid from maryland could just shoot at the drop of a hat. And i was watching miami the other day i was like god. I love this miami team. I know that they haven't done what they did last year. But like if the market's off of instagram away from the instagram models then boom they can get what they they can get with any done. It just fun fun season. And i love the middle of it. All you got frank convinced. Just doing franken convinced. He just putting on a show ever nineteen fifty nine. He's the bhai. Like there. Should be a bob pettit award like player from this year player from this era who would dominate back. Better night like fifty sixty years ago. Ski was bartending in racine wisconsin kyw years ago and now he's in the nba. I know he was so good on wisconsin. He was so good on that. Wisconsin finals beat duke also jordan jordan with just draft national player. The years from college diakite realizing that doesn't mean what it used to be. The only one it worked on was kemba walker. I was right remember. Got the zeller brother salary from indiana. Great yes like what is he. Looked like a service manager at like a honda dealership right. He's he's the guy who didn't make it in an extra hoosiers like the team that lost to the team that hickory guy. He's the guy at a restaurant where you're like. Let me talk to your manager. And he comes over and he's like. I'm not the manager but you can't talk to talk to people at work. I actually just had side friend. Sell the papers i did about am not going to brag here but i made about six eighty six dollars and eighty cents. What's wrong and i will relate to my car. I have a gift of relaying information to people in power. Your wife's hair very is not just just showing you what i can do. Let me just touch it. She is very auburn smelling hair. And i'm just going to smell. And then i'm going to leave my favorite all right so so now that we're standing here. We're on the precipice because the season is what is it about two thirds two thirds done. Yeah three or four heading into the home stretch homestretch. So let's let's predict because this is my most fun thing to do. I love this. Who who standing in the western conference finals eastern conference finals and that who makes the nba finals in. Who wins it all. So who do you think it's west. Let's do western conference finals. Who who do you see are the joe. Life that lebron and ad aren't back. I don't think they. I think we all agree right. They do it. If those guys aren't healthy. No i feel like lebron is a living malamud so he will come back and be healthy fresher. I'm worried about a d. I'm worried about chemistry. So i'm going to go. I don't think the nuggets can do it without drama reacting. That was a big blow. I still love him though. I think they could get into the western conference finals right. I'm gonna go a little boring. And i'm gonna say the jazz do it okay. They they come out they come out at boring. That's first time to the clippers. Get all the way to the finals or no. They can't don't love the clippers man. I haven't ever time. I watch him. I feel like it's not coming together. It's not clicking. I think kawais been hurt for two years. Yes i think. He's got a chronic injury. Don't love the chemistry up rondo. Pickup was a good one. Great one would either go. Jazz or clippers. Come out of the west..

"Well as what we can say. And the people did rally around the city. Jaguars rabid fan base down. Now you're saying it's jaguar. it's not a jaguar jag. Wire wire as by the way. Ideally said with a philly accent and jackie jaguar. Wire your jaguars. Jaguar you gotta swallow your else. When you're talking about philly going. Gary danny go at a wall on a fifteen agreeable water. Ice is the first time. I ever saw daryl hall live from daryl's place which do you remember that. Show where he had like basically can he does. He has on a musical gas for those who don't know and and they play one of the guests on ceelo green and then ceelo will do one like on sought. We'll do like a holiday song. Which is amazing by the way great format but like in your life. Have you ever heard daryl hall speak. You've never heard him speak. You've only heard him saying he does a lot of books on tape. Novels are darrell does. Yeah he did and then he did. A lot of the. Tony morrison novels. Which is all the tony morris. All only go to audio coach. She's like. I wrote the bluest eye with did aside. I have never heard speak. And i watched gerald's place and he does have a philly accent. Asked thick asks philly accident like did not realize it was that they can tell you it was like hey see you wanna go grab keg. Zero like douse pants. Or jean. de jesus christ. But but that. So that aside. The idea of tampa bay tampa bay. I mean i have a hard time getting excited about tampa bay winning the super bowl just because it feels like bayoumi is like florida even like jacksonville florida. But i never think of tampa bay. This is my own ignorance speaking. Now i'm sure wonderful community liberty field with art his rival. It's a cultural touchstone of the city. College assurance filled with philosophers shirt word human nature but no. I just don't think of it that way we can we. Can we just talk about the fact that tampa is like chan is champa because of like think about as the run. Think of the run. They've had the rays had a legit run to beat the dodgers this past year. And we're like literally one pitching change away from maybe beating the dodgers the the buccaneers win and the lightning. That's unbelievable to me that like they've won that much in been in it that much if you're tampa bay fan you're stoked. Do you know the most amount of grand masters chess for any metropolitan area tampa campus. That isn't says masters and only eleven grand wizards from the kkk. More grandma's wizards and they boast that all the time. That's the highest per capita nobel prize. Winners that's six and and these are facts that you just. They're not on the tip of your tongue and when you think of tampa bay. Again champ obey. You're welcome champ obey javale. Let me ask you this as just being kind of around. La sports for a long period of time and being around these dodger. Teams that for the last decade. I would say like the ron of kershaw so to speak. They have been the class of the league and then not winning. Do you feel like the sixty game win last year. And we talked to our friend dr ryan as the batting stance guy about this. And he's like yeah in the future. No one's going to even think is it at all not tainted but is it less than because they didn't play one hundred sixty two games and regular season or not. I mean you could actually argue. That teams have won the world series with a hundred and sixty two games. Those are tainted because he is a preposterous to play that many games. It's ridiculous it's ridiculous. It's an economic. You know anomaly is what it is and but sixties pretty light. I mean the ideal amount of games would be like a hundred and thirty five like that would be great like you get the idea. You get to see the stills you gotta deal with injuries that having been said the dodgers were so dominant last year. I mean they really were an all time great team so i think it's still counts i. I don't get too much. Asterix off. That and i do think they're going to win it this year. Too great shot cia man. I'm telling you in one series like the blake. Snell to san diego deal to me. I'm like okay anything's possible. Really good i mean. That is weird. Rivalry that i've never. I've never heard anyone say robbery. And then the padres in the sentence right so since the days of eric shall eight pete. Rose's four thousand one hundred twenty eight. Hit give it up did they. Get it off eric. Show did you have to eric showers in the john birch society. That's actually not a joke. He schilling for curt schilling is a james beard. Award winning chef. People do not know that about eric show at is true. That is true. And yeah there's sex players james so who are those. Can you name those things players. It was aqua kwa was easy eric. Easy tony gwynn easy. Let's see what was his name. Benito or benito santiago both either or james beard big benito santiago you would have thought he would have won for some latino cuisine. But he did it for a thai restaurant. Well he's gonna say out of his comfort zone. Nido san diego deputies. Irv all the meals from their knees. It'd be about benita sega. It was all small with him and it was all small small. What is it. It's top banish fusion. Type food at most people in the community got to tell them that he was also a baseball player. Benito santiago used to used to people offer. I had this we've said this about What's his name steve. nash. I guarantee you. There are people in steve. Nash's life who don't know that he was in the nba. Did he play soccer. You know what. I mean like stephen ashes so not the press dealership like some people might lose. They're like enough. People like probably knows enough like weird people who aren't into sports at all who just know him as having a really good haircut the guy with the really good haircut guys.

You're forty four years old and we basically just play peekaboo. Well i enjoy scott adsett to. He's the best as got folks might know from From thirty rock among other places. The tone of that sketch. I think maybe even more than the many great things that you wrote within four will farrell on snl when your head writer of snl is like where your career ended up more recently. Which is it is just openly contemptuous of the idea of business leaders being business leaders and all the phoniness around being a business leader. Yeah yeah. I think that's accurate. I think what was great about chicago was just that chicago kind of ethos. Is that comedy blends with politics. Blends with community blends with social act. You know everything is in the same pot in chicago and you know obviously the tradition of unionism chicago studs terkel and all that kind of stuff. And that's what del close to is. Famous line was like you know. Aim for arts or relevance and if you miss you'll get comedy for comedy you miss you get nothing So he definitely encouraged that in second city's kinda built on that Yeah and we were weak. We caused some trouble in those days. Too i mean we. We used to do a lot of You know protests and activism back then usually with a theater base to it. And i remember we took over navy pier on the weekend that had opened because it was sponsored by pepsi and that is a german company that bought all the sweetener companies the corn syrup companies around the midwest and locked out the employees. Saying we wanna pay you half as much as you get so we took over the navy pier pretending were from pepsi and then stage. It's higher scene where protesters were coming at us and we were humiliating and they started tearing up our pepsi signs and police showed up and actually arrested the actors playing the protesters and i was one of the pepsi guys and i was like oh crap. What are we going to do. And then the cop came up to me goes. How do you wanna handle this. And i went I think pepsi's taken up brand damage today. Why don't we just let them go. Like okay gentlemen. You're free to go. We'll scurried off to our car and it was like odd couple news station so yeah that's chicago. It's unique interesting town in that regard. I think that also maybe had something to do with your personal predilection which is to just go all the way to it. I mean even if even the you know Silliness that you did on saturday night. Live or you know in anchorman. is still i was all i always just had my breathtaking away. At how far you're willing to take the silliness. I think it goes back to when i was a kid. The stuff i loved and there's no better feeling than when you laugh so hard you have tears in your eyes and certain jokes from when i was a kid like an airplane when the newspapers spin and they say people on airplane doomed by how were they land the plan and then the third newspaper says boy trapped him refrigerator heat's on foot and i literally. I've talked to other comedy. Writers like take. That joke changed my life. And when i was way younger even the three stooges which is just the level of violence. It's almost like punk rock in.

Yeah yeah that's the one thing you can say. It's bullseye thorn. My guest is director. Adam mckay you were a founding member of the legendary sketching improv group the upright citizens brigade which you left after not that long but you participated in a very famous. Uc show that involved flaring the neighborhood the city the city before the show and like was always engaged in like Trying to make improv shows almost into happenings pulling people into the street. Things like that definitely. This was probably its grandest manifestation though. Yeah we went out papered. The city handed out flyers on subway cars the l. basically advertising my own suicide. I'm assuming this is what you're saying. Yes and i had had a really terrible headshot done a couple of years before that was super cheese ball where the divers like smile bigger and we used to always laugh at my terrible headshot so that was the picture and it just said on such and such date outta mckay will kill himself then in big letters no joke and and there were some people that were concerned and then during the show at one point. This is how long ago this was. We went to a local real estate guy and they had a building across from the theater. That was like six stories is seven stories high and it was the flat iron building and And we said. Can we get on your building and can i yell to a crowd. They're going to pull out of the theater and once again the mid nineties and the guys sure we support the arts wag the audience out of the theater and i was up on top of this building yelling. Is this what you want. Is this why you came here. And i could hear dell closed down. They're going jump. Jump backed up and we had a cpr dummy dressed as me and it really did. I mean from faraway kind of looked like me and we threw it off the building. And i could hear the crowd gasp for like half a second the body hit and i was dead in the meanwhile i ran as fast as i could downstairs. We took an elevator and then bolted out and then a guy named mondo diaz who now runs theater in new york city called the magnet improv theater. He came out as the grim reaper to claim me and the uc bribed him to go away. And i snuck into the group and pop back to life and we all went into the theater which years but that was a good time. Why was it important to you to make scheme as grand as that one when you to be fair like we're probably earning thirty dollars from that show. I don't even think we made that zero in that show. We would save the money to buy our props so we weren't making anything We were all teaching improv. On the side and gets how he did it the whole fun of the initial upright citizens brigade and obviously evolved into something different and wonderful. The beginning was you're right. It was like happenings. It was pranks. We just do things you weren't supposed to do. We took the whole audience back to my apartment once and because it was a first floor apartment and played out a whole murder scene where a ratio busted in the room and killed a guy who was like an actor in it. It looked like a real apartment part of the audience was like what are they doing. Did all kinds of things like that and the audience into the street and improvised a seeing over an intersection where it was thanksgiving dinner. And you know we were in our twenties and we're just it. Was that last time. You kinda do stuff like that before. People started really freaking out about insurance and little things like the law and ta and the whole spirit of the upright citizens brigade was. You really. don't know what's going to happen at the shows Remember another time. We had a guy planted in the audience. A lot of great actors in chicago tuesday guy. No one would've known but he was a good actor and in the middle of our show he said. What are you doing sir. While you're writing notes and he's like trying to blow us off and then it turns out that he's richard christianson the biggest critic in chicago for i think the tribune and we all say let's see those notes and we start reading them in their terrible panning our show and we grab him and we run them out of the theater and throw them on the street. The audience follows him and we terrible notes. We scream at him and say don't ever come back and for a week. It buzzed all around chicago. That we have thrown. Richard christians are show and torn up his notes. And i believe the real richard christians like no. I've never seen their show like Yeah it was great. it was That was also the theater scene in chicago. At that time there were a lot of really cool. Experimental groups like a group called theater. Oublic and Group called comedy theater department. Gary wilms was in Richard maxwell who's now an ob award winning playwright in new york city and it was a really vital theater scene that was going on there at the same time. At some point you had to figure out how to make comedy a profession if you wanted to spend that much time on it that was it and then so i auditioned for a second city. Just because how many auditions can you do. This improv and i thought i might as well not expecting to get in and got in and they paid and that was it so eventually about a year after that because you start off kind of slow at second city i told him i said i gotta i gotta leave. I gotta pay my rent. And they made the greatest trade since lou brock for. What's that famous terrible baseball. Trade lubov for some guy. You've never heard of and i left the say. Jeff bagwell for larry anderson. That's the one. I very good. That's very good. That's a little more modern to And so they treated me for amy poehler and the rest is history and so they were like oh mckay left for about a week. Was amy poehler eight minutes minute. And they kind of shot like a rocket ship and it worked out great for all of us. I got to go to a second city. Got hired by us now and then. They all moved to new york. So i still got to do improv with them and it's been very cool to see that theater just grow and grow. I wanna play a sketch that you wrote at the second city. And this is the scene where you are mr grisham a corporate bigwig and you get called into the office after having taken some like aptitude tests western number one and your task. Mr grissom read complete this sequence of numbers. Two four six black bear answer. You drew a picture of a snowman. You wrote happy happy foot time. That would be an incorrect answer. Sure about that jerry. Have you checked the answer. The answer key mr goodson. A lot of education by positive number. Forty dollars sucks is right here. The answer is age. it's not foot time like white. No going ahead of ourselves chris. According to these results you have no sense of object permanence. This is a basic thing. We established when we're six months to a year old that allows them to understand that when your parents leave. They're.

"Thousand ten's though. His work got a little more serious topical political few years back he wrote and directed the big short which deconstructed and explained the two thousand eight financial crisis. I guess if there is a common threat in mckay's work it is that he sells it. It's never boring. Never forced he'll take an extremely dumb joke like i dunno stinky perfume. That smells bad. And frame it in a way that so clever and compelling you lose it or he'll find a way to explain credit default swaps that so funny bizarre and novel you forget. You're learning about credit default swaps. Recently mckay has made his first foray into podcasting. Death at the wing is a documentary series. That takes us back to the nineteen eighties on a spate of deaths involving young promising. Nba rookies and prospects. It looks not just. It's sports but at the politics and socio economics at the time and how all those things were deeply and tragically interconnected when mccain. I talked twenty nineteen. He'd just directed vice. Vice is a bio-pic about dick. Cheney trombley fair to say that pretty much. Every american has an opinion of dick. Cheney who's played by christian bale in the movie cheney is gruff drawl kind of blunt. Little bookish vice tells us why for better or worse dick cheney is one of the most consequential people in recent history and since it's an atom mckay film vice finds the most compelling and fun way to show us that like in this one of the pivotal ones in the movie where george w bush. Who's played by sam rockwell asks cheney to be his running mate vice presidency is also defined by president if we were to come to a different understanding since that Here connecticut leader. You make decisions based on instinct. I am people. I said that very different very different from From your father in that regard. Now maybe i can handle. Some of them are dane. Jobs overseeing bureaucracy. Managing military energy foreign policy sounds good adam. Mckay welcome to bullseye savvy on the show. Thank you for having me. You spent two years of your life and making a movie about dick. Cheney are there things about dick cheney that you like and admire your part of the goal of the movie was to dive into the mystery of this guy and you know who was this guy who very quietly took the wheel of our country of our democracy for depending on what you believe six to eight years and had this amazing influence so a lot of people jokingly call him darth vader because he survived all these heart attacks. he has kind of a gruff cold exterior. So there's no question we were looking for the human being behind it and absolutely I found some things especially in his early life. Pretty regular guy from wyoming Really what changed his life was. He fell in love with lynn. Vincent who became lynne. Cheney fell madly in love with her and she had a lot of ambition. Very smart woman. But the big thing about dick cheney that you'd find yourself admiring Is loves sincerely crazy about his family crazy about his wife crazy about his daughters. Did all the shopping for the family and did all the cooking for the family. That really became the backbone of the movie was this devotion to his family. And you even see the fishing metaphor kind of runs through that. When he tells his daughter well sounded good trick or a bad trick fishing but if we catch a fish our family gets to eat. And so that's kind of the base of the entire emotional arc of cheney and then obviously in the end you see i don't want to give it away but some complications regarding that family how did you decide to make this movie To a certain extent your previous movie in the form that you did which is to say that they almost take. These are narrative fictional films about real life events but they almost take the of lake a You know an arrow morris movie with less interviews directly facing the camera like they're almost documentary like in their structure. You know the big i love. The big short was one of my favorite books. I had read and then a couple of years have gone by. And i just was wondering why it hadn't been made and a movie i had seen before they re i really loved was twenty four hour. Party people michael winterbottom. It's great little movie. If if anyone out there hasn't seen it and also i come from a background in chicago of long form. Improvisation which is influenced by story theatre. Mike nichols elaine. May a lot of those people came through it. Part of that is breaking the fourth wall using monologue and then going into scenes so that kinda coupled with my realization after seeing twenty four hour party people like. Oh you can do this. And it's actually pretty seamless and kind of fun. So i knew the only way to crack the big short was to play with form. A little bit of is very natural to that movie because the financial products were so esoteric and confusing. And of course. We're designed to be that way with. Cheney was a different motivation with cheney was the fact that his power was so quiet it was so bureaucratic. It was so built around papers in desks and hallways and yet this power was changing the world. So i wanted to find a way to bridge kind of this office bureaucratic knowing how an understanding of the government with actual human impact about what's going on with the world and also at the same time. Keep the audience off. Balance by worst fear is that they would settle into kind of a traditional bio-pic. And i just didn't want that comfort to run through the movie right in some ways. What the movie is about is dick. Cheney in creating comfort in america in even within the administration like creating a sense that things are just kind of moving along while doing extraordinary things. It was We actually say it in the movie. It's one of his superpowers and a lot of people around him. Confirm this that he has the ability to say the craziest things and make seem very professional. Even look at photographs of him during the four years. There's a lot of him like stretching over behind for kind of his right hand man talking into his ear Leaning on the desk towards ford we actually discovered christian. Bale and i at one point that really one of his strengths is. He's kind of the ultimate codependent power. He really presents himself as someone who's gonna make your power greater and it's an unusual road but that's a lot of where his power came from. There's a gag it in the movie whereas you present that idea. The idea that his superpower is to is to Is basically to be so boring And so normal seeming that he can say the most extraordinary thing without notice And have it'll be agreed to You go fall on with a gag that could have been in talladega nights or somewhere doubt. Yeah i mean it's we want to shock the audience and it's it's very funding. The audience thinking they're in this dusty old bio pic.

"There's something i want to say. Yeah which is today for the first time ever. i was out driving around. And i realized hey. I've never seen sony home. Oh so now has a home that she purchased just covid. And it's a bit far from where i live but it was kind of sort of quasi near that area and i thought i'll stop by so i called sony. And she said sure come on over and while she was talking to me was chatting with me on the phone and i was talking to her in the car saying l. Head your way. I think i know the way. I'm following google maps. I think i can get there with your address. And we're chatting and i thought she said i'm cleaning up while you come over tidying up a bit and then i heard a noise in the background. That sounded like something shutting. And i said oh. Did you just close like a microwave. That's what it sounded like. You just close a microwave and said something that caught my attention. She said no. I'm armenian. We don't have microwave ovens and i don't know what that means and she wasn't making a joke and then she said no tack my husband's armenian too so we don't have. Microwaves and i thought this i have to explore. Why don't armenian people have microwaves. I'm not i'm not doing. I'm curious yeah. I am too. I never grew up with one. Neither did tack you go to our parents house. Nobody has a microwave. I can't speak for all armenians. I think i think most. Oh armenians that houses that i've been to you. Don't reheat the food by putting it in a box and zapping it for a minute you put it back on the stove and he basically re-cook it and it is also judgment there. No no i'm just saying. Do i want that radiation in my house. I don't know first of all there's radiation shooting out of a microwave that they fix that problem two years ago the point. I'm making this curious about this because this felt like a window into a real thing. You weren't making a joke but my parents. It's not a generational thing because my parents are much older than your parents. My father's i think he's one hundred and twenty eight years old. He is one of the oldest man to ever live and he has had. We've had a microwave in our house and like the late seventies. so it's not a generational thing is it that it's not generational thing and so did you think it might be cultural that that your culture doesn't believe in putting it in a microwave because that's cheating somehow it also you have to admit that when you reheat something in a microwave. It's not the same i would know. I've only related things in a microwave. I i'm serious. I completely dependent on a microwave. I take there's leftover food. My my wife's a very good cook and she makes stuff and it's in these tupperware containers. And i open it and i put it on a plate and then i put it in the microwave and i put everything on two minutes. I don't care what it is. I put it on two minutes. And then i always forget. Reach in and grab the plate with my bare hands burning the skin on my hands. I do this every single time. A squid will learn instantly once it stung not to approach that object again. I went to a good college. And every time i reach in grab it and my flesh sears. Still that's what i do with everything. I microwave everything. And i don't know how you can live without a microwave. I just never you know what when we when we were growing up. There was a microwave. That was old that someone had that was in the garage that no one used the only time that i ever used it was. I would take it down from the shelf that we were using it to where we stored it. And i would heat up the wax that.

"Then you the taxpayer pay for it and then about a year after that. We're going to somehow get really angry at teachers. Yes yes yes you know. These teachers are getting away with murder. Well wait a minute. What about bear stearns. What about those assholes come is. I couldn't believe i was actually witnessing it a year after the crash and there was this backlash against teachers. I was like that is nervy and they pulled it off right destroyed. The budget teachers unions. Yeah anyway well. He's crazy crazy. I have to fight fiber to go on about succession. Which is one of my favorite shows. I love that. I love the show but i also want to wear all the clothes that the men wearing that show when they go when they go hunting. I take screen shots. And i say get me that to my wife. And she says you don't hunt and no. I'm not getting that. But i want to talk about your podcast because it is really so thoughtful and it's such a you know obviously not a cheerful subject to death at the wing and it's really You can describe it better than i can but just talking about these these players in the nba who lost their lives or lost their careers. I mean at the time just dismissed. I'm thinking of len bias len bias. Yeah as the most famous was the number. Two draft. Pick in nineteen eighty. Six out of maryland gets drafted and he is many people think he would have been a great rival to michael jordan. He would have been one of the greatest in the game ever. It would have been jordan bias bias jordan and he's celebrating his pick as number two and that the fact that he's going to the celtics and does cocaine possibly for the first time to celebrate and dies and his death kicked off in a really negative way the war on drugs that incarcerating people instead of trying to help them. Yeah it'd be it's it's crazy. 'cause we're roughly in the same age zone and i was. I just remember in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine suddenly becoming a huge nba fan like all the sudden. The nba was the coolest. And i had this great experience of being a crappy basketball player beginning to love watching the league and years afterwards. I would always go wait. A minute seem weird. That many guys died in the eighty s going into the ninety s. Like it's a long list when you start to go through it really great players. There was another celtic. Reggie lewis who also tragically died from. They're not quite sure maybe a heart defect. And there's patrick. There's this guy. Ricky berry who is a really promising rookie died after his rookie year from mental health. Issues and benji wilson. The number one player in the nation out of chicago was killed in a senseless act of gun violence and on and on and on and this list and a bunch of players because of drugs in different reasons also under careers cut short. So i just always been curious like why was it during this period. And you don't see later you don't see it as much in the late nineties into the two thousands and now and once we started digging into it kept crossing over with just the eighties being this time of just massive change like you talked about with the rusted out cars and the crappy restaurants of the seventies and suddenly the eighties. It was like someone plugged into me on sign as suddenly it was like hash signs like dollar signs and everyone was worried about being slick and driving fancy cars and there was sort of this collision of culture and media and the nba that you saw in the eighties and we really started looking at that through each of these tragic stories. And it's heartbreaking first and foremost the promise that these guys had the effect on their family their community the loss. But it's also really. I feel like it's part of our history. We don't fully dive into the fact that we are living to this day. In the reagan revolution the right wing revolution and that the country used to be this way and there was a lot of social change economic change political change and once we dove in it was like we had to limit ourselves to assist select amount of episodes because it was just a bottomless in. It's just so much information so many stories about these players and and you're right for me. Len by is one that just i was a freshman in college and i remember hearing the news and just not even being able to process it. I was wearing a celtics jacket on the day. I heard about it. Because i lived in worcester and even though i was in pennsylvania i was still wearing my celtics jacket and just the heartbreak of that was tremendous by our producers. Should such an amazing job with that episode. The people got for us to talk to. The different voices is just Was such a pleasure to get to work on this. Talk to these all these different great writers and voices you start out and you think well this is going to be almost the true crime story of len bias. But it's not it's it. It starts with len bias but then it goes into how his death was sort of in a way co-opted people that were very interested in the war on drugs. You have some statistic in the podcast. It's still mind numbing that i won't try to replicate but it's something on the magnitude of we went from two thousand people or twenty thousand people in federal prisons to two hundred twenty thousand people in federal prisons. Some statistic like that in about an eight year span and just incarcerating and how the len bias def- really was the spark and the and lighting the fuse that enabled that to happen. Yeah it's really crazy. I mean you start to see these tragedies happen and they become more opportunities for a ruling. A new kind of ruling class really. I mean like the robber barons kind of the right. I was called the reagan revolution. You know it's like a star wars title like the gilded rage revenge of the robber barons like right. It's where they really kind of came back and kind of like you know countered the new deal and so the death of len bias was heavily publicized. It was a heartbreaking story. People are looking for meaning and they were able to harness that oppress people of color fuel. A burgeoning for profit prison system and give this exterior of Being tough on crime like people know voters really like that. No nonsense quick answer so they really got to touch a lot of bases. And by the way. I'll make it clear. Include democrats on that giovanni was involved in in writing this bill There were a lot of tip. O'neill the speaker of the house was involved in creating. it was a democrat. So you see the country swinging right and it's such an unusual podcast. I mean we have the first episode. We interviewed jerry west and we interview pulitzer prize winning journalist. Jane mayer in the staying in the same class. What i love about it. Say i don't want to say it has the candy coating of sports Podcast but i could see a lot of sports fans wanting to listen to this podcast and then being taken on a whole ride this.

'New Legacy,' New Lola: Why 'Space Jam' wanted to do better by one Tune

"On on the new space Jam Way Got lots more information on the new space camp film called Space Jam. A new Legacy film stars LeBron James playing himself who has a young son Dong, who wants to become a game developer. They get trapped in a digital world by a rogue A I. And it's upto LeBron Bugs Bunny and the rest of the tune squad to get them out of there against the evil goon squad. It has also been reported that Space Jam, too, will have a slew of N B A and W NBA stars including Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Clay Thompson and Shinobu McKay. He also got a first look at the re imagines, Lola Bunny, filmmaker Malcolm Lee told Entertainment Weekly about the re fresh quote. It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong capable female characters also said that this film is a better movie than space jam. All right, let's go. Better than the original space jam. That is a lofty goal. I believe it when I see it. LeBron James, though, is not even on the best team in the NBA right now. As of right now, that title goes to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are 27 9 on the season. The next best teams in the league have 24 wins, so it was probably odd for them, at least when the two jazz players who are reserved for the NBA All Star game, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were picked dead last in the All Star draft by team captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant. James said it was because he never played as the Utah jazz and video games when he was younger. No shade. Though the Jazz is most recent game was a lost, however, to the Philadelphia 70. Sixers and things got heated on the court. Mitchell was injected with 30.5 seconds left in overtime. He smashed a cooler as he left the court. Both he and go bear had words for what they thought was bad officiating in that loss. They were then each fined for being critical of the rest. Mitchell $25,000 and go bare $20,000. All the drama. Remember when artist said today? Oh god. McKay was in Space Jam. She's also in this Ah, conversation with Rudy Gobert, as he reflects on the season and his legacy. First of all, we have a great group of guys. You know, Like, Like I just said, when you have a group of a guy that's willing to sacrifice for one another and do all the little things to make each other better. You know, your team just go from here to here and, you know, obviously we have a lot of talent We have. Ah, Very good coach. We were pushing staff and I think we were very dumping a team up with both hands. You know, we still got ourselves. We still think that we are defensive team.

Trumps Legacy in the Media

"A status report on the condition of forty fifth. President left journalism in turns out being called enemy of the people and scum of the earth for five years was sometimes scary but it wasn't all bad. It offered some of us especially those from elite mainstream outlets covering the white house some lucrative career opportunities the fact that donald trump was trying to turn reporters into villains made them heroes to half the country. I say this as somebody who benefited however inadvertently from it mckay coppins is a staff writer at the atlantic. How did he benefit. Well when i would write a story. That was skeptical of donald trump. I would get invited to go on the daily show. I would get offered speaking engagements. My stories would be re tweeted and travel all over the world. You basically had this huge global cheering section. You had this great line in your piece that once obscure correspondence where recast in the popular imagination as resistance heroes. Yeah i mean that was i think. The strangest part of it right honestly journalists tend to do their best work when they're not seen as you roic figures when they're actually kind of obnoxious little too nosy and a little bit on the fringe of whatever world. They're covering and they're not glam up instead. They're kind of just these rumpled observers of american life. i think that's kind of the sweet spot for journalism and so it was kind of uncomfortable went in the imagination of one half of the country. It's almost like we had cape on right that i don't think is actually where the best journalism is produced and i think the best reporters and journalists of this era did all they could to resist that you quote new york magazine's olivia newton these saying that she could write in a piece quote. Donald trump is the biggest a whole to ever live and he is a terrible human being and a bleep president and like he's ugly mad at me except the same people who are mad at me anyway for existing right. That's the other thing that was happening here. Which is that. In the trump era a lot of the conservatives who had spent time in the past criticizing the mainstream media for being biased. And who had a certain amount of poll among frankly editors at washington publications a lot of leaders of newsrooms really cared about conservatives complaining of bias that changed in the trump era in part because a lot of those conservative critics went so fully off the deep end frankly where it was no longer debate about whether something was biased. Restoring should have been framed a different way instead of became just dismissing every inconvenient story as fake news inventing facts wholesale. What happened. Was that a lot of reporters. And editors got desensitized to these criticisms and kind of stopped paying attention. You know what. I think of libya was describing there. Is that when you have conservatives who are going to be mad at you no matter what you write every day you end up kind of tuning out. What they're saying and you pay more attention to the rest of the country which exists somewhere from the center to the left. There is a kind of direct language where you're actually not just trying to convey clearly what's happening you're trying to preach to the choir but it's only your audience. It's not the whole country. And i think that making our audiences uncomfortable is often our job right. We have to reflect how they're feeling and what they're thinking but also present them with information and stories that will challenge how they think that's something that we have not always done well and i hope we can figure out how to do it. What lessons will stay with you now. That trump's gone. I'm going to be better about not letting the political figures i write about set the terms of my coverage right one of the things about the past five years is that donald trump wanted a culture war with the media and too many of us in the media gave him one we kind of centered ourselves in this story in a way that a lot of readers and people out there in the public found insufferable and i think rightly so look. It's hard because all the audience incentives again in all the book deals and the cable news contracts and the twitter followers flow to reporters who are at the center of political drama. But we've hopefully realized. I know i have that. Placing myself at the center of every story is not actually usually a service to the reader and. I hope that we'll all be a little bit more self

"Officers. Have Been Shot. They have been transported to. The hospital. And We will provide more details. As, they are allowed to be made available but. Please keep these officers and their families. In your prayers. It's been a tough year for law enforcement been a tough year for law enforcement. Scott McKay is our guest Scott I was reading. During the break, you have a very interesting background in the eighties and early nineties. Scott McKay was working with at risk kids from there. He built a wildly successful corporate career as a billion dollar. It sales professional meeting with C. level executives, winning top sales words. But when a difficult divorce ransacked Scott's world, he hit rock bottom he set out understand women and find out what attracted them his results were so powerful that his friends insisted that he reveal his secrets. So. Tell me what that divorce did to you. Well, I'll tell you everybody told me when the marriage broke up they said, you know Scott you couldn't have been a better husband your best father to your daughter you did everything right and Unfortunately my first wife suffered from mental illness and it was really just a matter of time before she bailed from the relationship and you know I. became very codependent relationship believing I was the problem and very shortly after that break up hearing what everybody was telling me about how you know it wasn't your fault I just decided Michael I don't like feeling like victim you know being a victim means you've lost personal power and you have no agency over what happens and I said well, you know what? Regardless of what everybody's telling me in the reality of the situation in terms of bench illness and how it affected it what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to say, okay what could high what could I have done better? And I sought to do what most people think is impossible. Right which is understand women. You know the old adage is women are a problem wrapping and they must surrounded by a problem, right? And I was bold enough to try to figure that out and I said, well, you don't WanNa do I wanna be the kind of guy who attracts women? So I, study I research I did the self work and I went out and low behold Michael started working. I started showing up places with women and guys were like, what? What's she doing with a guy like you and? It all changed from there. And that's how the marriage affected me. I didn't want to feel like I was powerless in this happened to me I wanted to like this happen for me and. And really pulled me out of victimhood and. You know life's been very different since I'm married to the woman my dreams now. What's the number one lesson. that. You give guys that you learned in this process of. Self Development, self growth. Easy, it's be proud to be a man. You are not some kind of monster. Let alone some kind of horrible person in any way shape or form simply because you were born male. And that you're attracted to women, that's that's how we were born to be. When a man is a provider protector and a presider he he acts in the best interests of women. That's virtuous. Masculinity not toxic masculine. If. We start mistreating people being selfish. That's when we're just not being a good person in general and I'll tell you what Michael there's such thing as toxic femininity to their black hearted people. They're golden hearted people. Most of us are somewhere in the middle we gotta do the best we can is flawed human beings and that's what it's all about. You know. What I find. Interesting. Is. Women are attracted to men who are manly. and. This the white liberal phenomenon of carrying her purse and. Claiming your feminist and and basically just these week pitiful white liberal men because that's who's engaged in this. They think that they are the complete man for women. Women don't actually like that. That's correct. That's one hundred percent true. Are. Attracted to men and men are attracted to women and you know what? Here's what's widely misunderstood about the dynamic of masculinity and femininity Michael they're not social constructs. They were not invented by the quit patriarchy to keep women down or something. They're the very catalyst of sexual attraction. Masculinity. Femininity and vice versa. Tom Baranov's. Again. Are you start talking about Farah gnomes No. I am not. Tell. You. What happens with Faremo's is you know like many other animals in vertebrates and invertebrates we have all these different kinds of signals we send each other. To you know, start the mating dance and What happens when we take three showers a day as we watching a lot of that off. So You know back in the day when we were sweating caveman. Perhaps. Ironically, we were more attractive. That's an interesting theory. Very, intrigued. WHO's your number? One show sponsor? My number one show sponsor be body spray. Now. God No. I I want a little higher quality should be home he gets it should be a barbecue grill. That's not a bad idea Ramon what you think should sponsor the show. Well I have the the number one sponsor I could ever want I mean if do Kati motorcycles signed up and gave me a bike that would be tremendous. But in the real world. I have a company called origin main sponsoring my show, and that is a a company that's partially owned by Jaakko will just. A total bad actor, former navy seal guy who's the men's self? How self-help knows who s for sure and very proud heaven not this isn't some Alex Jones thing is. Oh good grief now now, what is the one he? He promotes remote? I can't remember it. Have you ever met Alex Jones. I have not I've never even talked Alex Jones. Here's the thing I did not realize he's about five eight. Really he was He was at a he was at Two Thousand? Eighteen. Donald. Trump had come to town. He was endorsing Ted Cruz was a massive crowd at the Basketball Arena and afterwards we walk next door to have Chinese food. At China Garden Fantastic Chinese restaurant we love and he was out there and screaming and hollering enacting a fool as he does and I couldn't believe it. He's a little biddy. Dude I'll tell it. He's taller than me I'll tell you. I'm five six. Are you really? Yeah. Matter of fact, let guys come to me 'cause they Scott Women don't like short guys and you know to me I think women. Are Less attracted to how short men tend to act than the actual height itself. That's my theory on it and we've proven that to be correct again.

"And joined the most positive facebook group from men, you should do this from the mountaintop summit. Scott McKay is our guest Scott. Do you have thoughts on Jeffrey Toobin of CNN choking his chicken on a zoom call with his colleagues? Is that something you encourage? Well first of all thank you so much for allowing me some airtime and being a guest on your show, and that's a heck of a way to start at so. That's the way to jump right into the water headfirst now isn't it Jeffrey to been? You know I don't do a Lotta research on Jeffrey Toobin, my base filled with the more important things for guys who want to be men of character. But no I absolutely do not recommend anytime. You're going to be on camera and you don't know what's going to be done without footage doing anything untoward let alone Dropping your drawers and doing something that could embarrass you for the remainder of your natural life. Certainly, not if you're talking with your buddies at a poker game, what is your go to throwdown phrase for masturbation? I probably either wanking or some other whatever was on the most recent episode of South Park would probably be the funniest. I've always been a fan of choking your chicken. Yeah. That's a good spanking. Your Monkey. You don't we should ask people that because I was gonNA tweet I was trying to find some funny things to say about this. But I've run out of phrases to to us. So we should probably throw that out to the audience when we're done with Scott. For that the the you do this mountaintop podcast fulltime. Well as of the bigger picture of what I do full-time we've been doing dating and relationship stuff mostly for men since two thousand five and over the years because of. You know the talk of toxic masculinity such. We've helped mankind sort that out a lot of guys are forgetting what it means to be a man nowadays when Real African reality were. Born as man and it's something that should come natural to listen to. What happens is the societal pressures come along and Kinda get us confused. So every week we do the mountaintop podcast on Fridays. It's really a show it started out for guys who are mostly single, but over the past few years in particular. It has become a show for guys who really just want to be high quality men have the grass woman in their life. They possibly can and I'm so thrilled with the audience we got navy seals and you know military officers, captains of industry, and they just WanNa, be high men of character who WanNa do the right thing love my audience. What is the topic that people want advice on more than any other? Well for single guys. They have this problem where they get into the just befriend zone. And they like a woman, they like to go out with her and she says, well, you know I'm just not feeling. You're such a nice guy but I don't think I want a boyfriend I want you just as a friend and for. Married guys it. You know how can I be the man of the house? How can I reconcile this idea of being a leader being a provider protector designer all these things that signify virtuous masculinity without descending into something that's going to make my wife Nag me or you know not be so attracted anymore. So pretty much. That's pretty much how it goes whether guys in a relationship or not just yet I observe a lot of men and maybe this is the the decades-long beatdown of. A toxic masculinity and the like but I observe a lot of men. Who are in marriages or relationships where they have no influence no control, their directionless they resent. The role that their wife plays and they are resigned to the marriage as a result of it because they no longer have any influence they no longer they they have been emasculated. And I see that so often these beatdown men, my wife's tired of hearing me say, I'm not going out with him. He's a beatdown man I cannot. I can't watch it. I did I can't watch. Why do you think is? Well you know I think there's this confused sense of what masculinity means. And it's Kinda interesting Michael you go to these rallies or you see these rallies on TV I. Don't go to personally where they're holding up signs. The future is female and they're kind of. Putting a postmodern spin on feminism and guys like Oh. Yeah. I'll be a feminist anything to make the women happy and then they wake up one day and. There's some how surprised women still aren't attracted to him, and they're still putting them in this dreaded just befriends on and what happens is a man will marry a woman not because he chose her. But because that was who was quote unquote willing to go out with them. You hear these terms like Oh. Yes. She's my ball and chain and even when it comes to sexual activity. It's like, okay well, I scored and she put out as if you know somehow the woman is the only tries in the relationship.

I mean were anchorman. That's I know, but you're will Ferrell and this dude who are now the executive producers weirdly on succession and just shows you their creative growth, right? Because that shows a work of art that show is well done and you're allowed to not like it. You're not you're allowed to not think any of the things that you think about the show. But I think this dude and will Ferrell have been genius. Across the better part of a decade doing comedy. And now they're evolving into their most grownup form, and they're making real Janet. Art, man. I admire so much what they did with funnier die where they're just taking Faeroes fame at the height of the Saturday Night Live stuff, and they're saying here, let's do something with with your friends. And that's what we're trying to create around here. The same sort of thing with sports, right, except we're trying to do it without Wilkin. Well, and and you've got your hand out a little more than we'll feral does. I'm sure like you've got your hand out and the percentages and see OB, and you're gonna flame out with all of us here when the feds raid the place at least, we're not setting a high bar for though. No, no, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I'm just saying within our little tiny sports playground. Please. Don't put us in that class. No. I didn't mean that I'll pay the fine right now. If that's what is no five for that. I was comfortable with it. This is what's the load? This is what's got is also comfortable with wandering around here pointing sausage fingers at everyone during the break waddling swaggering peacocking..

I think we can say this, right? I think he is a person who for ten years kind of the center of televised comedy, right? Like he's doing tell dig a nights and step brothers and funnier die and now he's graduated. None of those are on television. So we can't move mental. Mental movies. I'm now just on you. But now he's doing television, and he's making like he took he took a complicated financial matter and turned it into movie that had some creativity. And now he's morphed into something else where he's doing succession, which is one of the better shows I've seen it's kind of out Rupert Murdoch and kind of about Trump without being about Rupert Murdoch and Trump, and it's really well done.

And so we would the participate with coming to do our show. But before we would come in. There would always be this kid is nineteen year old who is doing a redo of sex drugs and rock and roll the but goes in an show. So we would always come in there'd be ten minutes left. And we would sit there and watch him. And we'd be like he's pretty good. He really nineteen. What kind of nerve does he have to show, and we would watch him. And then we would start our show, and he would hang around. He'd be like he's always by the way, he was nineteen. And he's still seemed like he was fifty. Any like? Guys are kind of funny. And that was the first time we met and then later my wife directed him in several plays in Chicago and just directed him in a play recently.

"Today on happy said confused, Adam McKay combines comedy drama in the new Dick Cheney bio pic, vice hey, guys. I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy. Sad confused. Welcome to a very fun conversation with a filmmaker and writer that I very much Meyer. Adam McKay is the guests happy second fuse today. His very first visit to the podcast, and as I said, his new film that's getting a ton of attention. And as it should it's one of my favorites of the year. It is the Christian bale. Yes, Christian bale as Dick Cheney bio-pic called vice much like Adam ks last film. The big short vice treads that line between comedy and drama in a way that really only advocate is operating. And nowadays, it has an amazing on Sombor of actors in it behind Christian bills. Revelatory transformation is are the likes of Amy Adams, and Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell? And that's just the tip of the iceberg, virtually every actor every character that pops up in this film is played by a great talent. It's a super entertaining. And and disturbing film. It's by turns of funny and tragic and frustrating, and it is one of my favorites as I said of the year, and at the very least you cannot deny the power of Christian Bale's performance in this AB Adams is similarly fantastic. As Lynn Cheney well worth your time. Vice comes out Christmas day fun for the whole family. But no, I do highly recommend it. And it was a real real treat to have Adam on the podcasts. He's somebody. I've want to have on the show along while because I greatly respect his contributions. As a filmmaker. And as a writer this guy, if you talk to anybody in comedy the last twenty twenty five years he is at or near the top of the list. He was a master improv founding member of the upright citizens brigade. When on a head writer at Saturday Night Live started directing shorts there some of which are some of my favorites. I mentioned the the procedure which is one that he did starring will Ferrell and Willem Dafoe. I highly recommend that when you can just Google that one and it'll pop up, but then he went on to start directing his own features. And they're some of the classics classic comedies of our times, anchorman stepbrothers and then Talladega nights the other guys anchorman two he's he's really he's really made some of the funniest contents. I can think of on a big screen in the last couple of decades. And he is. No surprise. Similarly, funny, Reverend in person, and this is a great conversation. He he's very open about the new film vice but also about his collaborations with will Ferrell some of the scripts that have or haven't been produced some of the background of what it was like to make anchorman his first feature and how much free reign he was given on that some of the techniques he employs as a director his contribution to aunt, man. He was a writer on the film and his interest in making a comic movie. There's some real interesting stuff here about the comic book character that he would still like to direct in a feature. Film might surprise you that is very famous marvel character that has not gotten a solo film as of yet. Stay tuned for the answer of that to that question. There's a lot here to enjoy your comedy fan. If you're fan of SNL if you're fan of the works of will Ferrell and Adam McKay. This one's for you. As always remember to review rate and subscribe, happy say confused as the podcast. You're listening to in case you just stumbled into a strange podcasts nother region. Thank you for tuning in as always. And I hope you guys enjoy this one. I believe this is this is going to be our last of twenty eighteen it's been quite a year. We've already got a bunch of great guests that have been banked for early twenty nineteen. I'm excited to to share those with you. But I think we're ending on a really special note with one of my favorites of the year. Vice and it's director Adam McKay, guys..
