Both worked for was my first experience in illustrated photoshop, so I had to learn. And leaves looking at me like girls just president I did that in six years later? I'm like making Tech Paxton. I'm now I'm making my own illustrating branding in designing my own packaging but I couldn't have done that if it wasn't for the or me working in industry for six years doing that same exact thing over over over day in day out and. Honestly, I would've never at me. Personally I wouldn't never acts or hire someone to do branding because I know like I know Kinda how to do that myself so. I'm jobless. I got all this free time ahead. Illustrator on my computer giant screen see we could do and then. I came into the world of like. Seeing brands grow on on instagram and in looking at packaging. Going out in like looking at what is all out on the market and men kind of just mimicking that. Trying to exercise my skill, speaking of your design background and your web of Brandon, your visuals tell of really cohesive brand story from the product to the Brandon into the photography. Everything has a really specific style. So what are some techniques used to get everything aligned in your aesthetic? Yeah, I'm Tumbler. Avid, Tom Moore gather all my feels, and all my moods, and the places that want to go in place the travel to and how I want my home till the glide in the future. How pretty much just like kind kind of trying to get to wear want to get to in like twenty years I guess. That's how I guess best, but but I will say this. That's my method now. My method before was everything was heavily heavily inspired by what I saw on social media to be completely honest with you. I think that's how many people start out. They have like look at what everyone else is doing at Don. KNAPP for like two years and I was just like it just wasn't working for me so now. I have to like go into. into myself going to my mind because I know, I know I'm an incredible human being and I. Know that whatever's up here is insane and I'm pretty sure that somebody out there in the world feels how I feel or have had not how I feel. That's how I organize. My images are my fields tumbler. Temperature is a great community of people just like Instagram, but it's less political. It's less chatty. It's really just about images and Pinterest But. I guess you would say. Tumbler would be like my my thing so basically. You're using Tumbler to get your as you call. It feels together to build your mood to figure out your mindset, and then by gathering that at helps, make your vision clearer absolutely and I. Just want to point out i. think the fact that you mentioned you're. You're building that based on where you want to be in twenty years. Instead of what's hot now be my favorite piece of branding advice. We've ever heard from any guests like it makes so much sense. It's inspirational and I totally. It links up now with what I've been seeing on your feed like I. Get it now. It's a vision rather than you know trying to. Fit in late on trend yeah it's. notice if you scroll back far enough. Everything was very Prada Teddy. Product product product product after a while. It's like okay. We know he's also of okay. Know you make so and I didn't feel. I was growing in also didn't feel like connecting. It just felt like I was selling selling selling, and I see that most instagram's fail that way because. They're just so focused on. Here's myself. Here's my so here's. My so here's the every five minutes every day and I said you know what. I see okay, so you see those instagrams that you you come across. They don't sell anything. They're just instagram you noticed. You see one go, and then you're scrolling next thing you know you're on it, but thirty minutes on this whole issue because you've just been absorbed, went down. A radical of just feels, and you connect with the a now now when you're done. Okay, let me go the late. Let me. See what's going. Let me see what these people do. That's what I'm. That's what I WANNA be. That's what I want. The instagram to be in that town draw people in because. The so at the end of the day. seriously. It's salt at the end of the day right in there, so many people out there making so you can go outside right now in fine soap anywhere, but the connection to it in the emotion that comes along with that is what matters most in that. I'm finding most success.

"My guest today is blind. Roberts McKay. Climbed named one of Canada's top women entrepreneurs at the twenty eighteen rb see Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards is the founder and president of the roundtable, an award winning company or leaders cultivate their leadership together. A self professed leadership Junkie Glenn has written for publications including the Globe and Mail hr edge and Canadian manager, and is a popular speaker to audiences across Canada, the US and Europe. She's the author of the Grassroots Leadership Revolution. which published in May of twenty twenty. Thanks so much for joining me today blind. And so happy to be here Diane. Thank you for having me. I. Am thrilled to have you here. We're going to be talking about. Here leadership communities which is just such an incredible concept and so. I I WANNA. Jump right in. I am curious why you think creating a community of support is. So important for leaders today. Ya and I mean really for me. And this started when I I had a job in my early thirties where I was managing partner for a consulting firm here in Toronto and the owner affirm was a member of appear community. Maybe than some of your listeners are familiar with a group called the young presidents. Organization or why Peo- and at the time I had never heard of these kinds of groups. You know before and got really curious about peer groups in general and was working with leaders who were categorized by their organizations. As high potential. You know that I always think it's you know you're you're a players. Those are the people that you know when you go to sleep at night. You think Oh, please don't quit. Please don't quit. If we all have those and it's usually my own experience has been. It's about twenty percent of your group, usually right twenty percent and so I. I. my practice is managing partner. We all in the firm. All had to have a little. You know practice delivery practice. My Specialty was coaching derailing high potential, so I would work with these people who you know had been superstars and then. Then suddenly. You know the company was going Gee. Can you help them? Get back on track and what? I noticed about a lot of them was that they were just in over their heads I. mean the thing with your best people is. What do we do to them? We kind of we see them out. They're treading water, and then we go. Here's an anchor. You can handle it. Not Right, and so I started getting curious about bat in and the power of. Kind of connecting these people with other leaders that were having similar experiences, because I think one of the things that were told in leadership, and that's whether you're You know an entrepreneur running your own business, or you're working within an organization as you're told, leadership is lonely, and the further you go up the ladder, the lonelier gets, and I think for me. I'm always one of those people. The more you tell me something, the more Mike, Contrary and brain kicks in and I think. Think well. Why does it have to be? And that was kind of the the experience I had at that time? Mike Riley ended up getting into my own peer group and working with some other people, and just found it so useful and powerful, and was just another resource for me to be able to tap into his leader, so that's where that's kind of the roots of the passion and the story behind dumb. My really got my arms deep into this. Peer Coaching Space.

Will Dak Prescott Sign A Long Term Deal With The Dallas Cowboys?

"Prescott. There is two hours and fifty one minutes left until Dak, Prescott, and Dallas Cowboys can work in extension if not he will be under the franchise tag for the next season earning himself thirty one point four million dollars guaranteed. With the potential chance I, guess up after this season or get franchise tag again. He is now the third quarterback in the history of franchise tags and the NFL to play on the franchise tag. If that happens obviously before after four o'clock drew brees that it what the San Diego chargers. He leaves Don Kirk cousins, does it? What The Washington redskins twice? He leaves town, so history says Dak Prescott will play. This franchise tag may be getting again even but not in Dallas Cowboy long-term. If Your Dad, how do you feel? Do you pumped about thirty one point? Four million dollars guaranteed because if I'm looking at that piece of paper I'm like fucking here we go. Yeah. He's got to be torn. I would imagine I'm sure you're excited. Okay? I'm going to be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for another year. MC, thirty one million guaranteed, but he doesn't feel like he has that long term security that he wants from the team. McKay. You think I'm your guy. You're willing to pay thirty one MIL for one year. Why doesn't that don't you think you should give me five six year extension and give me big time money for down the road? That's where he's gotTA. Be Thinking, but so if he doesn't do it today though. He will become a free agent. When the League year starts next March right now after the season they can negotiate. There's another window after the season before free agency to work a long term deal. I actually had that happened after I got franchise tag the day before free agency, we worked a five year deal or four year deal, so I never hit the market, but I was franchise tag the year before, so they could still potentially do that, but I guess I five year deal was offered to Prescott. Numerous Times but DAK wants a four year deal. Cowboys won a five year deal and we've been told by everybody around the cowboys and that knows the organization that that is literally. The only holdup is a one year difference so that's very interesting to me because it feels like there's it's much bigger than just a one year difference there. Thirty three to thirty five million dollars offered with over one hundred million dollars guaranteed, so if you look at that, they know that the cowboys won a five year deal that means three years of that deal was guaranteed. The other two were not locked in for five years as opposed to attack once for four, so everybody's assuming he's going to sign that deal. They're not going to get a deal done, but it's interesting because. He could potentially get thirty seven point four or something next year if he gets franchise tag thirty seven point nine if he gets franchise tag again I, don't see them running into the situation next free agency. I don't. There's no way that the franchise tagging him again they would. You would think they get the deal done I think that they're trying to see if he and Mike McCarthy going to work, I honestly believe that I think there's now granted. They made him one hundred million dollar guarantee already, so maybe I'm wrong in thinking

While schools with hybrid online in person courses will be required to certify their programs are not entirely online. The student in exchange visitors programs had foreign students who did not transferred in person programs and remain in the United States, while enrolled in online courses could face immigration consequences. International student enrollment in the U. S has steadily declined. In the last four years, Jeff McKay,

Not Talking to each other and the releasing these books and having these conversations is quite odd something in the air I'm thinking. I've quite enjoyed it to be honest. That's pretty perversive me. And I kind of think that all three of these books they all talk about our relationship with the natural world, and how we tend to elevate ourselves both the natural kingdom, and that has dr consequences for us, so you can ask for better timing. You're all using the voices of other spacey's to Talk To us about spacey's and Laura. Let's get a sense then of your characters story said in a wildlife animal park initially where we make the rough living alcoholic Jane Bennett. She's a part God. Her daughter-in-law Angela runs the park and then this bizarre. Pandemic hits. Zoo Flu. What does it cost to happen? Well? One of the main outcomes or symptoms of zoo flu is that once people get over the sniffle in the in the favor, they can understand what other animals saying not telepathically, but what all the animal bodies are communicating so at first especially for the main protagonist Jane. It seems like all who wishes have come true. She finds it really hard to get along with all the papal. She's very close to a Dingo cold sue. Sue and it feels like it's time, but of course once she hears what other animals have to say this the case with all the human characters. They realized that they're not saying that things that we want them to say they not saying. Hi, Hi I love you. Give me a snack. They've got deeper things at stake and the the way that they think about humans, the way that they are in the world is much bigger and much more frightening in humans would like. And I profanity challenge our role in their lives I. mean describe the chaos Connie judge. That unfolds as this pandemic spreads well as with the pandemic that we're witnessing now people reacting very very different ways. Some people take shelter and hideaway, and in the case of the novel, they often hiding from their hit so beloved fluffy, the cat who's lived with someone for years. Keep out on the straight in that time at other people, venture out and want to disparately. What animals have to cite them and often humans? Seeking an answer, we want animals animals to provide us with prophecy, a God, poetic vision of the future, but of course animals on he for us, and so much of the novel is about people realizing that the animals are are in the world for themselves, and they have they have their lives, and that humans aren't the center of the universe, and that's very very confronting to the human characters in the book.

The Red Summer

"Reeling from the unprecedented devastation of global pandemic. Nurturing wounds from a brutal military victory abroad. Struggling to accommodate demobilized soldiers into a slumping economy fraught with heated competition for jobs. Jim Crow separate, but equal policies endorsed by the president of the United States himself. Now firmly in place as the law of the land. White supremacists targeted terrorist attacks. On an all-too-familiar scapegoat. In another epidemic GLAC citizens found themselves on the lethal end of an outbreak of racial violence in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, so horrific that the civil rights leader James Weldon Johnson called it the red summer. The events unfolding across the United States today. In the wake of the brutal murder of George Floyd. are in eerie repetition of events that marred the history of race relations in this country. Almost exactly a century ago. African. American soldiers returned from Noble Service in Europe during World War One fully expecting that their sacrifices to their country would at long last entitled them to their full rights as equal citizens. Instead The uniforms they wore, literally became targets on their backs. wbz Do boys famously said that we return from fighting we returned fighting. We've saved democracy overseas and we're going to save it in the United States. That didn't happen. Between. November of nineteen, nineteen with a country devastated by an influenza pandemic known as the Spanish flu. Racial unrest rolled through the south and north in the Mid West where the great migration was just unfolding in its earliest years. The immigration of course had transformed large parts of the north and the West. In, Nineteen fifteen, there were hardly a few black people in Chicago Nineteen Thousand Nine Hundred Ninety one point. Two million people have spread themselves across the map. This demographic transformation of the color of the urban, north. Coupled with the stresses of a postwar economic downturn, combined to create the volatile conditions under which African American workers. Conveniently became magnets for white resentment in fear. The pushback was fierce. Chicago was wracked by fights along a dividing artery between one population and the other hundreds of people are dead. Cities are smoldering. It was one of the most vicious virulent violent race riots in our nation's streets. Small towns were also shaken by race fueled violence in Elaine Arkansas, for example, white vigilantes joined plantation owners. Sheriff's Deputies and even state officials to battle with faecal. And Uprising. Hundreds of black sharecroppers were murdered. Merely for trying to form a union. Yet in the aftermath, a grand jury callously indicted more than one hundred black women and men for their so called crimes. Of course, racial violence was anything but new in the America that time. Still. Amid the fallout from the Great War the rising generation, calling themselves new negroes. Was Not about to fold their tents. Instead read summer saw black. Americans, not only picking up arms to defend themselves. But also utilizing political organizations like the end of way C. P.. To challenge the violence in Congress in the courts in the media. And on the streets. In if we must die. The poet Claude McKay. Captured the tenor of the Times. In, his immortal call for defiance in the face of tyranny and terror.

"Well that's what changed originally sent there Because they were in the middle of the Gordon River which runs into Macquarie Harbour. Along the banks of the Gordon River is the biggest forest of Huron Pine in Tasmania and therefore in the world. Now Huron Pine had been discovered to be this fabulous shipbuilding timber and we have difficulty in in two thousand twenty in understanding what I'm going to say next. But shipbuilding timber was strategic material. It was the uranium of its Dave you like and so if you had good shipbuilding timber than you had good ships. You had a strong navy. It one Moore's at one battles it protected trade routes at Concord New Territory so basically good shipbuilding timber was without price. And the convicts was sent there in part to fill this timber that roll it down into. The Gordon River floated down to Macquarie Harbour and then it will be transported to Hobart and turned into ships but there was a problem the entrance to Macquarie Harbour is shallow and tricky And so if you loaded a boat up heavily with logs and these logs would wake tons age Then if you put sort of ten logs than into a boat then you'd never get through the harbour entrance so if you put two in the boat you might but that would mean You'd have to have fifteen votes instead of one so either way you lost and then suddenly someone had one of those light bulb moments. They said. Why don't we build the ships here? He's the interesting thing about Jimmy live. There is a movement of attitude and personalities in terms of those that a governing from incredibly brutal to forward sinking and this is part of the roller coaster the Jimmy is on yes and I started shipbuilding. It became the biggest most successful shipbuilding yard and Australia. The guys who were shipbuilding who were not convict. But who were brought there to be master shipbuilders. They were saying to the authorities. Would you kindly go easy on floggings blogs? Because they didn't work terribly well after you've flogged them and so. The number of floggings went down by ninety percent. People were better fared Better House. Better looked-after Etcetera so. Morale soared soared to a point. Where one convict had actually finished his sentence on Sarah Island. I remind people who are listening that this was one of the most horrible prison places in Australia by its reputation. What this guy finished his sentence but he was working on two ships and he asked if he could stay on. Sarah Island another two months until the two ships were finish so morale soared as a result of all this now. What then happened was we George. Arthur the governor of Tasmania the He was a hanger on Flogger if there was one and he thought that all gone soft over there on Sarah Island and so the fact that morale and improved conflicts where healthier so and that was exactly the opposite of what he wanted and so he decreed place be closed down and everybody be moved to port. Arthur will. This wasn't a popular decision with the convicts themselves so anyway most of them were carted off too but the British colonial secretary had decreed that if there are any project unfinished on Sarah Island. They would be finished. So ten convicts were left behind to finish a brig cool. The Frederick which was incomplete at the time and there were four soldiers. Lift to guard them fight. I can't remember which and a captain for the ship and so I never meant to finish the ship sail around to Hobart and then onto author and they nicked it instead. Jimmy of course had a family in Chile. And so he said well. You could get to like Julie Really. You know what? Why don't we will go to Chili's they said okay? Fine Jimmy we're off. And they did and they managed to sail the open seas. Now I WANNA sort of skip over a few things here because eventually Jimmy gets caught in the end others of the ten managed to escape. But what's intriguing is a change of attitude back in Australia or Hobart. Because did they in fact commit an act of piracy in steelers ship is transportation in and of itself a punishment and there was this added notion of slighty. There was a change of attitude that occurred. So there's there are some serious thoughtful voices saying this is all on Josten. It's terrible it. Stop They were also driven by the fact that if you had free labor and Convict. Labor undercut the price of it than the availability of convict later reduced the earning ability of free men. And so they were a bit against Moore convicts and there were other good reasons as you as you rightly said. There was some suggestion that the whole system was illegal that these people were sentenced to transportation. They weren't sentenced to be on a chain gang They went sentenced to be imprisoned They were just sentenced to be transported to be exiled in other words to Tasmania and they were exiled from multiples of seven years. In general I was seven years forty years or life those three most common sentences and also then Jimmy could have been at Hong for an active piracy but there was some debate about the fact that did they in fact steal a brig called the Frederick or was it just a pile of wood. Well in the end it turned out to be a part of the wood. And it's a wonderful story. If we take piracy first of all you and I might just use the word piracy but the actual charge was piracy on the high seas and they nicked the boat in Macquarie Harbour will until at Macquarie Harbour wasn't the High Seas. And so that charge had to go. And the other charge that mutiny mutiny is refusing to obey the lawful command of someone whom you recognize to be in charge of you will. There was no one who's command. They disappeared who was recognizably in charge of them and so they said well let one one won't stick either that charge. So maybe we're actually innocent but these subtleties of the law in an age of brutality will absolutely and in fact what I'm going to give away the ending of the story but Put it this way They survived a number of them survived. And the end of the book concludes with you looking at the ten. And what you can Actually ask the timeline as to what happened to them. But this must have involved inordinate amount of research not carried out by me but carried up a lovely girl called Medellin Bouma. Here's the grand daughter of a friend. Who's lived in Chile most of life and who has a history student there and so for her. It was a terrific guy project to go out and see if she could find anyone called porter. Who was a descendant of Jimmy what you have to bear in mind is these ten blokes who landed up there? Six of them got away before they were arrested and dragged back to Van Demons. Land charged with piracy and so on So six got away that left four But of those ten every single one of them had a strong stake in covering their tracks disguising who they were where they were froth Cetera et Cetera. And so frankly they succeeded in. Madeleine found a few odds and ends of stuff about the but but we we couldn't track them down but in hiding their tracks so to speak. It's people blabber mails that get them into trouble is absolutely when they got in fact to a port city in chillicothe Valdivia. Then one of the guys had a drink too. Many with the blood courtney tall and that was the end of him. They're all up before the next day. And and suddenly they move from being poor shipwrecked sailors a deserving of every bit of help with Hospitality Mountain into being criminals on the run. But it speaks to the fallibility of the individual. I mean Jimmy. Porter is basically a very flawed individual. And it's his own psychology his own makeup. That gets him into trouble in the first place. Didn't need to be there. No absolutely right and as I say. He spent his whole life with his thumb. On the self destruct button and he makes a succession of decisions. Which are we? The reader think are appalling. God Jimmy. I wouldn't do that if I was you. Will he does it? And and terrible consequences flow. It doesn't end well. We'll there was some people that were sent to Australia because they deserve to be there. There are others that were innocent. Just read Marcus clocks for the term of his natural life by the way Jimmy Porter is a character. And Marcus clocks the natural life. He's John. Rex really is a biggest basically yet. Marcus clack used a lot of the stories the cannibalism and all those sorts of things that are people are perpetrated trying to escape in his for the term of his natural life.

"We've learned a lot from our guests about big data but now it's time to get a bit personal in a segment. We like to call rapid fire. What is the latest book that you've read that you would recommend to our listeners. I've only been able to read things related to my talk over the last few months so it's going to be one from from my talk but basically I would say uncontrolled. I think Jim Manzi is is the author but again he's again. He's talking about experiments okay and I like. He's come up with some interesting. Terminology like causally dents is one of the terms that he came up. I think is impactful. That's that's a deep word man. Yeah I dig that sounds so you had a chance to talk at the conference but if you had a chance to pick a song song that was playing as you walked onstage. What would that song be. There is a song off of a stone roses album and I don't think the song was very popular but there's a point in that song where it starts out. It's the song's called breaking. I think it's called breaking into Heaven Evan. There's IT starts out with four minutes of just like jungle sounds and maybe these kind of subtle drumbeats and then all of a sudden out of out of this chaos evolves this like deep funky guitar. It's super awesome. It's like right about the four minute mark but all right. That's the point point. I would want to walk out on the long minutes getting seated. They're like what are these exactly awesome but it is really it's Groovy groovy like it. So what is your biggest personal money pit right now for children yeah. Ah that matters so is there a is there piece of technology. That's making your life worse today aw well kind of going back to the money pit. I'm a sucker for textbooks. I end up spending an inordinate amount of textbooks spokes of money on textbooks and so I don't know and the fact that I can the fact that I can buy a textbook and put it on a kindle kindle version or something like that just means that I don't have to worry about storing the textbooks so there's there's less of a cost because I have to worry about storing it so I don't know maybe maybe e-readers readers is a piece of technology because then I just spent more on textbooks. Are there any shows that you're binging on right now. Well not very many because I've spent most of my time trying to research talk but there I did binge of while on some. Hbo Documentaries so there's some really interesting like true crime on I love die and others are kind of morbid but it's like and then there was another one like who killed Gareth Philips and then there was like Jihadi John and then and then totally different than those Mohammed Ali documentary which I thought was awesome.

"Comedy world. Mckay's credits include Saturday Night Live funnier die and the big short. Today will be talking to him about his latest film vice which he wrote and directed and has been nominated for eight Academy Awards, including best picture best director and best original screenplay. Vice tells the story of Dick Cheney as played by Christian bale during his journey from college dropout to becoming the most powerful and probably the most controversial vice president in American history. We'll discuss why he chose to tell this story now and Cheney's legacy ten years after the end of the George W Bush administration, Adam thanks very much for joining us today. Welcome to the podcast. Thank summers. Very good to be here. The question I wanted to start off with is how did you decide to tell this story? Now, what drew you to this story of Dick Cheney? You know, I finished up doing the big short and we had done all the publicity tour and award shows. And that thing happened that our bodies tend to do where all of a sudden it just got really sick for like two and a half weeks at a nasty flu. And I started looking at bookshelves, you know, people give you books through the years, and you just shoved him up there and don't really think about him. And there was one about Dick Cheney, and it kinda struck me like, wow. The book of history is about to close on that guy. Like, you don't really hear his name mention that much more, and you don't hear W Bush's name really mentioned and holy cow. Those were just rough eight years, and we went to war and the economy collapsed, and torture and all these things, and I you know, I follow the news. So I knew some stuff about him. But I just I curious, and I started reading and was kind of amazed by what a large epic. American tale. Chinese life story is how far back it reaches. How many monumental moments in history? He was around for this like Zelic like presence the seventies through the eighties. And then of course, I was amazed by how I gotta give him credit brilliant. He was it manipulating the system and playing the system once he became vice presidents in his understanding of the bureaucracy and the laws and how to squeeze between the cracks on them. So that he could acquire more power. And I kept reading more and more books and the story kept getting richer and richer and then somewhere along that line. Donald Trump got elected. And all of a sudden, we started hearing people say, hey, I kinda miss George W Bush. He wasn't that bad Tim and Cheney, and I really felt like I gotta make the movie I was like this crazy that people are saying this, and that was it. We were off to the races. It's really interesting to think about the different reactions you've received I've talked to others who've seen the film for whom. This was revisiting a bad memory. But there are many other folks some younger people for whom this is the first introduction to this story, which audience did you have in mind as you're making it you said that you were worried that the book of history might close was primarily targeted that younger. Folks are not so familiar with this story. I didn't really think about the specific audience. I mean, I knew certainly professional journalists and scholars quite a bit about. So it wasn't targeted at them as much, but I was hoping to just re-engage the conversation or another way to look at it is in the film world there really hadn't been any movies made about him. There is W L over stone that glanced on his character. But that was about it. And there's certainly some great documentaries. But there was no real film. And I just wanted to make sure that what happened was marked down in the film ledger. And as. It's turned out. You're correct. The most exciting responses I've been getting those really are from younger people in that ranges from teenagers all the way to early thirties of a neighbor who's has son who's fourteen years old? And he's watched the movie four times of a lot of people come up to me at screenings and say, you know, I was too young for those on my God..

Poo poo and sleep when I'm dead. I'm the exception. So when vice was over I was working out with my trainer, and I had a very serious heart scare at Tinguely hands. And and, but I didn't have chest pain or arm pain. Right. So I told my train argh, I'm fine. It's just Tinguely, and I feel a little queasy. So I convinced my trainer to leave. And and then right in that moment that I was sitting alone on the couch. I remember Christian bale telling me when we filmed the Dick Cheney heart attack seen how do you want me to do the heart attack? There's a lot of ways you can have heart attacks. And I was like what are you talking about it? I thought it's the arm and the chest. He goes, no now, one of the more common ways is your stomach gets queasy, and you feel sick to your stomach and right at that moment, I jumped up and ran upstairs and popped about four baby. Aspirins and called my wife who then called. Nine one one. And I got to the hospital and the doctor is like why did you do that? Like you. There's no damage to your heart because you got in here so fast, his like you were having a heart attack. But you did what you're supposed to do. And I was like might lead actor. I think it's either Christian bale or Dick Cheney just saved my life. That's no exaggeration that actually happens. Yeah. Yeah. And I called bail about a week later. And of course, he's a sweet guys. Like, are you? Okay. Are you? Okay, UK. And I'm like, no. Honestly, I'm good. But I think you saved my life, and we just laughed. Geez. Is a crazy crazy story. I'm glad to hear. You're okay.

Oh buttons a character. There's no question. I really thought that was the end of him. So I couldn't believe it when he when he popped up in the middle of that. And and, you know, the funny thing too is you see a lot of these characters from W Bush Cheney administration who are still out there. As pundits on you still get to hear them, everyday talk about their views of foreign policy, and that's also very strange to see these these characters still walking the earth, exposing exposing ideas, but it, but it also points.

"That sounds like a guy who's I don't quite want to say afraid of someone but can't handle someone getting the presidential campaign between George W Bush, and Al Gore when will Ferrell was playing W Bush, and you were working with will Ferrell on writing writing, the Bush sketches Bush was usually depicted as a kind of bumbling, not very smart frat, boy, kinda guy who drank a lot and didn't take things very seriously like to party and have beer, did you have any idea in those days? During the campaign, the Bush would become along with Cheney. So consequential in changing the course of American and world history. That's the scariest single sentence. I've ever heard. No, no. I did not. It was amazing. I often refer to this moment when I talked to people about wind. We know that America was going down, a very, strange course. And once again, you know, regardless of your political opinion, whether it's right or left. I knew something was different after that first bait with gore and Bush, we were all at thirty rock watching it on television in one of my friends offices. And I just thought it was embarrassing. I thought we were clearly seeing a guy who had no qualifications to be there, and George W Bush had a ten year gap and his employment history. That's actually true ten years where he didn't work at all his first job at a college was selling tropical plants, clearly the only stock in trade he had was his family name. And by the way, I'm not. Not saying gore was perfect, but you know, Gore's a professional he's been around for a while. So we were watching this debate. And we were like this is really ridiculous. And then I went and I walked around the hallways of SNL, and I saw several people, and I said, can you believe this craziness that's going on? And they went what do you mean? I think Bush is great. And I'll just never forget the look in their eyes. And I realized at that point we had slipped in two different reality. And sure enough, you know, he I don't know some people would say didn't win, but he squeezed, you know, he squeaked out a win. And I'll tell you for sure the second time, he ran he definitely one. I mean, America definitely picked him and Cheney it was that's one of the strangest moments I've ever experienced in my life. My guest is Adam McKay, he's nominated for Golden Globes for writing and for directing the new film.

I want you to be my VP. You solution of a problem? CEO of a large company. I have been secretary of defense. I have been chief of staff the vice presidency is mostly a symbolic job. Right, right.

It's I gotta tell you. It is like a once in. I don't know generation once every ten years kinda performance. I was in awe of what he did. And not only him EMMY Adams to uncork so performance for the ages, and this movie that kind of the two of them are kind of Dick Cheney. It's it's a breathtaking performance and the transformation, and you know, it's not just weight gain and make up its he got every single little physical nuance and tick and habit of this guy. Not only do they do that. But then he understands psychologically why the guys moving that way. And it was something to behold, I mean, it's one of those ones I jokingly said, it's like when you act with with will Ferrell when I'm directing fair, it's like riding a catch back and forth. We're throwing stuff back when you watch. Balance some of these moments you feel like you're just quietly watching nor wall like three ching through ice. You just wanna be very still and not Reckitt. And it's it's something to hold the truly is do you have a great Christian bale story for us. I don't know if you want to tell the one that rescues the life or not.

I don't know if they're a better story with another actor, then that story going to tell the people who don't know tell that story for the people who don't know it. So it was two weeks after we're done shooting. We're getting ready to go into the edit, you know, which takes awhile, and I realized oh my God.

And I know you can go you go. I finally convinced him to leave and the second leaves. I remember Christian bale onset telling me when we shot a Dick Cheney heart attacks, and how do you want me to do the heart attack? One of the more common ways is a queasy six stomach. It's not always the arm or chest. And I remember saying Christian like really, I didn't know that that's interesting. And right in them moment.

"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.

"McKay joins us on ESPN radio. Now you executive produced this with will Ferrell. What does that mean in terms of your involvement. Yeah. Well, we get a, we have a company, Gary Sanchez productions. So every episode kind of, you know, every show or movie, we does kinda, we do it kind of varies. So in this case I was heavily involved. I directed the pilot was involved in casting the show giving notes on scripts working with Jesse Armstrong, the show's creator, like, you know, pretty heavily. I, I love this one. It is. It's just, I'm I'm curious as you're doing it though, do you realize you're making something special. You know it, it's, you know, it's feeling good once that Cass came together. I knew we had a great script right from the jump. But really when I could tell was when the next episode started coming in and I'm watching them to give notes. And instead I'm just starting to watch him like, oh my God, I can't wait to see this. That's what I knew it was. Good, doesn't always happen. What's that? How often does that happen? I was just about to say that doesn't happen very often. They're, you know, usually you're looking at it from a work point of view, and then sometimes like six months later, you'll get into it. But this one was immediately each episode I was looking forward to the rough cut coming in and seems like what you were about to say after that first question was you deserve credit for this show being success and listen. I'm good with that. I'm proud. You actually like we're friends but max credits year, right? Yeah. Awkward thing to say about yourself, a little cocky. I should be right in the middle of all. This should be part. So how is that going over in terms of feedback, it must be very fulfilling and make you feel great pride, like who are some of the people coming out and telling you in a way that's flattering, man, dude, you, you hit a home run. Yeah, you get you get emails from people. You get emails for friends. You can always tell we all have those couple of friends who don't give it up very often. In fact, most of the time you can feel them judging you from a distance and. When you get those emails and I got a couple of those. I knew like, all right. The people that you're like this guy or this woman stingy with a compliment. I can't do that. Got those. You got those friends. We all know him. You could see a new episode of succession. This Sunday, ten pm on HBO always a difficult thing to ask somebody, but where does this rank in terms of things that you're proud of? Like professional speaking. Well, you know, when you directing is so intimate, you're involved in every single second of it from conceptual writing and directing. So every movie you direct is like crazy, you're involved in it, but this is a pretty high up there. This is great from the producing side, you know, producing hard. 'cause it's like trying to steer a car from the back seat a little bit. And this is one of the best, and it also goes back to the lesson of when you're gonna produce produce with great writers. Jesse Armstrong is a great writer. It makes life much much easier. You know we did eastbound and down as well like that one a lot. And those guys were really talented. So yeah, this is pretty high up there. I'm loving it when I love about it too. Is it? So of the moment, you know, we were making it. We doing my tech scout on the pilot day after Trump got elected, and you know, regardless of what you think about him, it's pretty clear. He has no problem promoting a child or two, and there's definitely that kind of family stuff going on. And it was like as rough day as it was. The day after we still knew that we were doing a show that was about what's going on with these family dynasties like the Murdoch's Trump's the cokes. So that part of it too makes it extra satisfying. Again, this is the man who gave you anchorman anchorman put it on the poll by the way, lebatardshow anchorman is a hall of Famer. Comedy hall of fame. We're asking early on the alley, dodge ball is dodgeball. A comedy hall of Famer according to Adam McKay. God, I don't know how many you got in the hall of fame is it you have like. McKay, it's your as you want or choice.
