"And i think that's you know there's a fantasy element to to think for a lot of queer folks and i think it's the first time as a young queer kid in the closet where i felt seen as a person Because horrors trans transgressive by definition. So you just kinda feel like oh. This is like or stuff. i'm watching. They see me whether it's intended for me or not. They see me as a person because they're doing something that by society standards isn't quote unquote normal. You know so. I think that's why the queer community is so into horror. It's deal it's the most fun did did you see. Did you grow up on the one horror area. I do really geek out on his nightmare on elm street did you. I'm sure you must have. Thoroughly explored at martin elm street to to your podcasts. You'd seen the documentary. Yeah see and everything on that movie. Yeah same. I we did. We actually did on queer. Will we cover a nightmare. Shoot and three Because to is known as the gasoline right. Everyone says it's a movie ever made. But i actually have Take that i think. Three's actually an even gear film Because it's all these. Teenagers mental hospital being cured by these doctors. That fucking hate them ashore and to me. It's just such a metaphor that i literally watched every single one of these characters square air trying to unclear them. So if you watch that movie again look at it that way and let me know you think because i think it's way queer them to the. I'm like yeah. Yeah because it's there. They are all like only able to live out their their fantasies in their dreams. And and that. That's the thing that got gets used against them adjoining place they're safe. Yeah their heads and then it gets invaded by ready but wouldn't it be invaded by friday. If it wasn't for the fucking doctors that are telling them there's something wrong palm it. Nancy is total hardcore. Lesbian may end that now. Total lesbian at her three her died in part one. She had a journey between one and three where she realized. Wait a minute. I'm actually a lesbian. I'm into like soft which women johnny depp. And she's and see this craig west or whatever. The doctor's name is trying to date or in part three but it's clearly not working clear like bro. We cannot bodies maybe we can go see a dodgers game that. Here's the slashers. All i can think about is those poor parents getting that phone call. That's truly i get. I get a deep mournful sadness. No you should because it's ridiculous but like when i was. Abc lag for the first time. It was like so high hopes for those kids. That's all i think about. Who never thought about what the share whatever and everybody has to make such calls mournful energy like a string of carrots. I never thought of that while. You're you're just green with right so bring me on a movie. it's great it's literally got one. We started off and enjoy a fucking. Can't now breaking of you guys. Got to see freaky. Okay no i was looking. I couldn't find a drive drive in. I looked to. Maybe i missed driving through like an hour. Away sucks. yeah we will have seen it by the time this comes out and everybody obvious michael. See it on on the od therapeutic inspiration asus. Oh so fun and everything you need. You're the best All everything you need favorite kind of horror movie with so much heart. It is so if i can like south blood Three because i there's absolutely love this movie. I'm so proud of. It is so fun at the end of the day. Like that's the most important thing. I think people will have so much watching the movie especially right now But i think the thing people. Which is why i think we're getting such good reviews from critics which we actually didn't expect we thought we'd get decent reviews and stuff but i think it's resonating with people because when they see the movie go wait a minute. There's like a heart at the center of this story. So i think that's the thing i'm most excited for when it drops. I'm the odious people being able to see it at home going all. This is actually kind of a sweet movie. I was actually reading a review yesterday because this is my first movie. So of course every fucking review of the movie. Let's amount in someone wrote something like it's the most wholesome r. rated slasher gory movie you'll ever seen in your life and i thought that was kind of on point because it really has a wholesome quality to weirdly because just so sweet and like i always call it a land in heart. It has the chris land in heart that he brings everything that he does. And it's really queer. And that's what i was gonna say i Price your sin tweeted about it that you know. This movie is way queer. It's super which. I'm really proud of christmas. Definitely did that on purpose. we're both queer and we both set out to set up to like change a john or anything but we just kind of movie. Did we wanna see when we were sixteen. That never got to see And that's why we were a lot Breaking that's why we created the character of joshua who's this big loud unabashedly cake gay kid in the movie Some real excited people see because that character represents. I wish i was when i was sixteen which i have that confidence and the support to be so openly myself the way this character is some really excited for people to see it. So are we so excited to see queer. Twitter's going nuts about it. So be really they wanna conversation sleep on this truly so much michael thank you is. This was joy..

"Meet somebody who would meet somebody. And then try to guam on almost right away. was like such a desperation to be in a relationship honestly And that always ended up coinciding with me doing that with a person who would take advantage of it So the person's people. I ended up west. We're just really shitty. You know what i mean like. I found myself in three relationships in a row. Were the first month or two is like super fun and exciting. And then as soon as i started to get like start settling into some sort of routine i guess for lack of a better word. It quickly delved into feeling shitty about myself all the time. is the first three relationships i had in la with people that were just. Don't want to say abusive. Because i think it lessens people who actually abused but like really low self esteem. Abaya being told it was likely bat. That's it is a problem in this problem in this problem. This problem like sounds abusive to me. Yeah so that was like that was what dating was like when i was sober. I think with her. When i was drinking as i think i was unconsciously pulling for the stat relationship once and for all but make you love me you know. Yeah i was like saying yes. I'm gonna get that person that treats me like shit to understand who i am and no didn't happen now And so yes. So then when i I did that for a few years. And then my drinking got to a point where i couldn't even maintain any relationship because dudes would be like after like two or three days to be like. Yeah he can't spend any time with you. You know what. I mean Just kind of toxic. I was toxic. Made had a lot of that like a lot of my drinking. Was centered around my inner homophobia to and dating those guys were part of that you know what is it about those the horror genre that that hooked you well for me in the first movie i saw really saw was screen. I my brother. Actually mainly watch like ten minutes of halloween when i was nine and between like sided. Watch another horror movie until i was sixteen years. Okay okay oh yeah. I would like to see a commercial for free movie. Run out of the room. It was so scary to me so that my friends in high school tricked me into watching. Scream is stupid. sixteen year old. They were like oh. It's a rom com of course. Of course there's a rob combination scream So they like. Take me to. The theater and i was instantly hooked on the adrenaline. It like being scared but the big draw for me even that very first time was the final girl It was seen. I think that's why or resonates with a lot of gay guys is like i think we see ourselves in those characters and i'm like so thankful that the very first one i got to experience is like one of the best ones ever in with an campbell in we're characters just so strong And really empowers herself but she started out in a spot that i always felt i was in which was quiet shy. Kind of ignore in your reality I was succeeded. Closeted in she was sixteen refusing to believe that you know like her mom was not the person she thought she was or that the wrong person killed her mother. Like not the same thing but kinda is right like you know. We're denying our own existence to ourselves into the world. And i i tell the story a lot because love it so much but i literally can repent point like the moments in that movie. Where like. I could almost feel my brain chemistry changing and was like addicted to what i was seeing but also was just so emotionally moved and i think for me. I got really lucky for that movie to be my real first experience. Because i'm drawn to that now drawn to the emotional journey that these characters have so. I find myself really gravitating. Horror always like to type a horror So for mia resonates on more than just a visceral level. It's just like literally an emotional journey in. It's been a part of my life now for almost twenty five years. I don't know it's like it's weird like family lake it. So i just like i just identify with all of it. You know i can i can. I can put myself in any movie. If that makes sense. I could put myself in a city. Prescott shoes are gale weathers. Shoes as queer person in make their experience queer to me. And i think that is i saw scream when i was what i guess i must have been twenty five in the theater and i was with my boyfriend at the time and i was like. Just don't let your parents just don't wet your pants zurli in the relationship. I am so squeamish that i can't deal but it is john genera especially among people have always just. I don't know. I've just been curious about the connection. Yeah i think we see. I think where people see themselves in those characters. I think they see themselves as you know being oppressed push down told you're less you're not worthy and i think that's why we're able to identify with the genre so much you know And i think we can even do that with bill. And sometimes because jennifer's body is a great example of putting yourself in her shoes you're queer person just fighting back in like making people pay for all this shit they done to your whole life.

"A little bit of. Oh yeah all the time. All the time always convinced that anything. I do is gonna fall apart as it continues. If that makes sense like brunson's the second movie i'm doing. They loved the concept. But then i told myself for the two weeks leading up to the pitch. They're gonna hate the pitch they're gonna pass by the pitch. And i'm like okay now have dried the outline. They're gonna read the outland and they're gonna toss in garbage in say. Why did we waste our time. You know what i mean in then babe. Send me off the script on the line and then i'm writing the script on like. Oh they're gonna they're gonna hate this. Why do they buy. They're going to hate us. They're gonna hate it. They're never going to make this movie. And i do that every step of the way what i will say working with. Chris landon on freaky. And he's actually producing. My second movie has really allowed me to open myself up to realizing. I do have some sort of talent here and it's not just lock it I'm starting to learning to appreciate. I saw with that. Make sense that imposter. Your imposter syndrome is though all i i mean i i'm not i'm not A sober person. But i do have a familiarity with Twelve step programs. And i would imagine that sobriety would play a big role in just the like the facing of those demons that we're talking about like the the like asking you to be accountable for and just like the self examination that is involved in it. If that makes any sense yet does and it does help because for me i. I had a lot of anger when i drank. My drinking resulted in a lot of justice negativity and not working. There was easier to be drunk and then go. Oh no fucking hire me. It's everyone else's fault than sue like be like well. You need to quit drinking. it'd be. I don't know maybe write something. You can get the people because they're not gonna just and you a job you know so yeah. There is a lot of clarity in that. A lot of it for me was just being nice late when i got sober one of my biggest things. I told myself i wanted to do to do was just the a nicer person and i wasn't like a raving lunatic castle drank. But i just had a streak in me at times that came out in it. Negatively affected my friendships and relationships with boyfriends work environment sometimes got affected because of it so the biggest thing that i wanted take away with sobriety before. Even the writing was just like okay. Why don't you just try. Being a nicer person. Less angry person And that really helped. Because i started realizing. Like i actually have an niceness to me. If i just let it come out and it really started helping me build solid relationships with friends or industry. You know And i stay in touch with a lot of those people that i'd say in touch with almost everyone i've worked with you know because i i don't know it's just something i strive to do. I got sober. And i think it's helped in my work. So you mentioned you met your boyfriend. Is it sort of coincided with with getting sober. What was it like to date and and get into a relationship you know sober percent. You know how that's going to question. I mean i think i got really lucky. Need him when i did. Because i was only about four months sober when i met him and i had gone into my sobriety looking back on out telling myself i didn't need to be permanent applied at wanted to be. I went and going okay. Let's just give this a shot and see what happens and my boyfriend is like nine years sober so when i met him. He was several years into his path of sobriety So meaning him changed my life in the sense in so many ways but with sobriety changed my life in the sense of like. Did you need to do this forever. Like there's no semi sobriety. You're either sober. Your and he just gave me the strength. And the ability to have that conversation with myself because i think syllabus even though i was successfully a few months sober So i think it would have been a lot harder. Had i not add another sober person. Awesome would see somebody or something in the life friend. Who's happy and every do you need. You need a north star such a good way to good comparison. Yeah yeah you need that person. That's going to hold your hand and say hey it's going to be okay you know. And that's what he was for many still as you know and he immediately in the early stages are our relationship. He was the one that that spec script that i couldn't get sold and does this is a really good script. You should try to do anything with this weather. It's try to get it financed yourself to a table. Read you know enough people. That would alex forcing did my table for that. He's like you know enough people that you could put together a really good read That actually was another thing that helps not only in my career. But then i spent the next three months putting together and it was like i wasn't working. I was sober. I had many reasons to stop to start drinking again and it really was like the first time in my sobriety where i for like three months. I had a real sense up. Just like what. I wanted to do who i wanted to be in like. I had something keeping me move. You know like the gave me like my first sense of belonging as a sober person in its. It stayed with me since then. And i'm glad it really was tied to my work because i think it's helped me with my work ever since dave ads. Holiday gifting guys. It's not always so easy. But thanks to mac weldon. It's.

"He helped me with my sobriety and helped me be like you're good at this. Just keep working at it. It's like something's going to happen for you if you keep pounding the pavement. And that's really what i did. I just pounded that payment. Like like start over two point. Zero is what i call it like. I really just like had to will stuff to them. And that's exactly what i did. What pavement look like You know it was utilizing relationships that i made and not in a way that was you know the thing. I always tell young kids when they get messages. Now which is weird to me being like. How did you get you know in his like forming us relationships that i form that were authentic and it wasn't like just using people to get in the door anything so i utilize my relationships in the biggest thing i did was. I had the spec script that i'd written a slow actual Also a slasher movie That was gaining traction around town with readers and stuff but couldn't get it made. So i eventually just put together a table and doing that was like the biggest the best decision i ever made because it actually opened the door to new relationships and one of them was with blood house so i did things like that all the time. I wrote a pilot accommodate pilot. Did a big table read for that. I read people scripts that they wanted. Something be read I just really cultivated my relationships and a lot of them were ended up being like good friends. You know in the thing is i kept writing. Just headway like writing and writing and writing and writing and writing until i don't know got to a point when i did the pilot for the cw. That basically was because i was just kind of annoying. I found somebody a friend of mine. And i had this idea together in. We just decided to put this heads together and we just went out to people that we knew that we thought would be had the same sensibility for Because it was a really weird concept or hamad eight did where it was essentially like sidney prescott from the first scream in. Laurie strode from halloween. H two our having a team up to stop killer in their small town but like their small town makes the survivor girls famous just for surviving. A serial killer Like the jamie lee curtis characters super desperate because her star power leaning because with each attack every four years because she had the sleep day killer is what we called it every four years the killer the fanfare with the killer would get less and less to the point that like no one gave shit anymore so he liked by writing partner on it and i just like kinda will bad into existence hounded producer novartis to get attached to it until he finally did and then we were able to take to studio through those relationships and just managed to just. I don't know a lot of it was timing and stuff but we really just kinda took no for an answer like wouldn't take no for an answer liking so that Got it into the cw and they bought it so you know it was just a lot of like ignorance is what i say like not knowing any better. It has really. Are you able to generate data relief in your ability own or do you just like plow through and hope for the best buy do. Do you fight would like that sort of imposter syndrome. Writers do.

"Let's get out so it went to. Yeah so right after we they bought it. We return around rewrite early. Quick and then he immediately got into casting and pre production and stuff. It was it was crazy. It was a freight train. It was twenty months from sale to release. Did you guys talk about vince. Vaughn kathryn newton while you were writing her with these big surprises you There were big surprises me that we got the both because we did right. Hope and catherine would play. Millie and thinking bents would play the butcher like we wrote it right specifically towards them. But we wrote going. Okay how would it be the vince. Vaughn took his comedic sensibility in providence. So this seventeen year old girl and then and worked with catherine before in really enjoyed working with her and i always thought she had that i really didn't get familiar with her and so big little lies watching big little lies. I always loved her. Like kind of is so we kinda wrote go. And i hope they give us moving because we're kind of writing stuff for them And as chris says he's like i would have felt lucky getting one of the two about the soon he'd get neither of them in somehow So theaters right now and it's gonna be od that number four so it was kind of the first or second new universal amc deal where they have like a seventy window so they. They ended up doing that with it. There was talk for while maybe pushing. Its next year or just putting it on tv od. But they decided to use that new platform. Ill i think they call it. So it's kinda weird you know because like i'm joining like goes by movie but i'm usually go see my movie. I wanna be looking to see her. Go see money. Yeah yeah. I actually was tweeting. Look yeah yeah. And i was actually tweeting out like like i'm only so i like literally was finding like all these local drive ins that were playing in like for like a week i was tweeting out like all the local drive ins that were playing the movie and like sunday those out on twitter so i wanna you see the movie go here you know in So yeah it's really bittersweet because we didn't get the big fancy premier and we didn't get to do a second test the deal and we didn't get to do all we have in theaters slide quicker. Yeah complaint yeah and you know like as my producer movie. Yesterday i talked to me goes. I don't should how much money needs may because of the pandemic number nubia america for two weeks so gives a shit up. It made three million bucks like. We'll what i love about. This story is that is this. Like hollywood fairytale unfolded but it also sounds like for you. It was very. It was a long time coming like you. You alluded to some real. You know sort of career dips are before then. Which makes it. You know more inspiring to me. Because i'm definitely no stranger to that. So what was life like before this all started to fall in place i mean. Yeah that's like a really good point that you bring that up because it does sound like a fairytale. But i always you know when i do talk about it in detail. It was like an eleven year process. You know i've been in la eleven years And things i've done throughout the years have led to freaky. It wasn't just like this magical thing in a way it was like i never would have met chris. If i didn't have that podcasts. You know what. I mean than. I never would have had that podcasts. If i didn't need the people at lung house and i never would have met. The people have one house. If i didn't have a spec script out for years ago that they liked but didn't make you know what i mean so it was like a big number of steps that took me to freaky so you know for the first four years. It was just kind of like it was hard you know. I was new. Had no money was working a production gig in paycheck to paycheck while also trying to like read every script. I can get my hands on to actually learn the process. Because i moved out here to right thought. I knew how to write. But at the minute i got out here and got anywhere near production. Had no fucking clue. I was doing you what i mean. It's like i had to go to school while working through not actual school but like i was literally schooling myself while i was at work every day. And just the ins and out of television itself So it was a struggle. It was a struggle for a long time. It was four years of production work before. I got my first tv writing gig in you know at the time. It felt like okay. This is the breakthrough i need. And this is the breakthrough. I've earned. Because i wrote a ton and wrote stack after stack up their spec in it was at the time when people still expects Existing show so. I did that quite a bit. You know some member getting that gig. It'd be like oh my god it's happening. I'm gonna get tv forever because not everyone says dad. I is the hardest part. And then it's it's yeah you'll get the next one you know and it just didn't happen i you know it's like that classic could it find gig so the agents stopped returning phone calls manager dropping. You know i liked was literally back at square one six years into being in la In i was also older so for me it felt like it felt like more of failure at thirty five than it did twenty eight. You know what i mean because like what the fuck do i do now. I'm thirty five years old and thankfully. I did two things that i got sober boyfriend who i'm still wealth and it really just put a lot of stuff in perspective.

"Happy birthday of all movies one day and this is. I actually didn't even know chris at the time. So lake jenner july of the same year. I have a sitting watching. That movie. And i was watching a scene where tree main character a stock in your mother in. It's really was really emotional for me. I started crying. I started thinking of my dad and asserted wondering if chris time who i didn't know but i always looked up to his his career. I was wondering if he was maybe exploring his own grief over the death of his father. through that movie so i started thinking i want to explore migrelief and then my very next stop was okay. So how do. I rip this movie off. So i was like. This is so genius. Take groundhog day and put it in the slash world. What is another movie. I can do that with and cut so that night. I'm laying in bed and like hit. It was freaky friday. So i literally tight myself. A one sentence email wouldn't forget it in the morning woke up in the morning i was like oh this actually is a terrible idea. Because sometimes i'll do that then i'll look in the morning to like what is this email even say. This is trash. So i spent like three or four days. Googling someone had probably had to have made this movie already like. I was convinced it was an idea that someone had already done and i was just forgetting the movie and stuff so after about three or four days of doing that. I realized maybe did make this movie. So i started putting it together in my head and sending myself notes and that kind of thing but unfortunately that summer i sold a pilot so the cw. So i spent about five months writing bat so it kind of put the idea in the drawer and as i was writing the pilot. I was doing my podcasts. For blood house and through them. I was able to get chris on the show and we clicked on the show and became friends so we started hanging out every once in a while having lunch and stuff then in january february twenty nineteen. Cw passed on my show on myself with some free time. Like back to being like okay. What's the next thing i'm gonna do and like i should pull killer body out of the drawer. That's what it was called at the time. So i wrote up like a nine page treatment. It was going to take it out to pitch. And i had a meeting actually set up with blunt house to pitch on a thursday and how to be having lunch with chris on a tuesday and this was i think early march at this point of last year and i was just told him. I was getting ready to pitch in christmas so nice. He offered actually coaching on this pitch. can meet with tomorrow. I know what those guys wanna hear. I know exactly how to pitch to house. 'cause he's done like ten movies with them So we got together the next day and we both decided it was weird for me to sit in pitch him a movie because we were friends so he just decided to read my nine pages and honestly like twenty minutes later. Chris started listening to his fingers. That i'm doing in front of you. Guys right now own. Where he's like picking up them. And now i know that yet. He's picking out his finger note. That means chris landon thinking is he does that when he's thinking okay and then he started talking and then he started pitching. He's like what if you did this. What if he did this. What if you did this. And i just kind of looked at them and i was like would you wanna do this like just kind of be like fuck it. I'm just gonna ask him and he's like yeah actually want to make this movie so we left this meeting both. Let's talk to our wraps sleep on it. You don't make sure this is both right for both of us. Let's circle back in the morning but by like four o'clock that afternoon we were both tax in each other. Be like what the fuck are waiting. Or let's just do. He's so literally started the next day. And then you did the pitch to blouse house together so we actually decided to stack the film. Chris's really he's got a really good instincts. For which way he wants to go on a project whether it's a pitch or writing a snack or any other thing you can do and his thought was. Let's spec it because this is the type of project that i think could sell on a strip as opposed to being stuck in development. Hell for two fucking years So we started the next a re re-outlined my outline. So we kinda beats for my outlining kind of restructure bowl movie And then wrote it in like four weeks took its blunt house christmas relationship with them and i had my show at them so we took it to them on thursday. Kind of just like it's gonna go wide on monday. But here's here's like your first like you get first crack at it so to speak. I feel we're telling the story because like it or happen again. It sounds like everything so because gave it on thursday. We got an offer friday. The deal closed saturday in the movie. Greenland on sunday and any listener. That's not bursting film. This'll never fuck it happen again. I don't think it works. It doesn't just got very lucky. So yeah that's kind of how it all came together and mickley to which is that's the tv writers never wanna do features because they say nothing since mater forever but this was like really fast tracked while fast. Yeah so we started in march finished writing it in. May it sold. I can tell you like the dates because it's my first film. Five everything ingrained in my memory. It sold on may ninth. That was green lit on may twelfth in. Chris was in production on october twelfth. Oh my god yeah so looking into. Here's my dog by the way she's like climbing on..

It's so fun absolutely. Yeah so we just finished the season last night tax lawyer and yeah i mean it's really been about. It will not challenge or command our full attention because we don't have it to give. Oh perfect perfect yet. I just started supermarket. Sweep actually perfect. Jones have you. Have you watched any of the and door buzzer. 'cause that was the show used to watch when i got wall like in junior high ethic iran's on slice summers I loved it. Could not be dumber it truly this. There's no relate and it's so stupid and the abc reboot hasn't tried to make it any less done. It's so doug jones. Yeah it's just yeah. Go get those hands. And that's why it's brilliant. Yeah yeah get those bonus. Blow ups. Loves things are still. There is just the last sincere thing that happened in our culture. You know and it's beautiful. Thank you really good point. Michael i wanted to ask you when we did your podcast. Which longer with us. But you're obviously a horror. Buff but what are your sort of all time. Touchstones is far as film yet or horror or your horror films or films Okay so i always turn to the exorcist. Is the scariest movie ever made. And elsa affect movie agree. Watch that watch that all the time and i just watched it recently and it really is a perfect film So the exorcist for sure The original halloween the original black christmas. These are any movie. I'm mentioning something. Ivory watch at once probably a season not wanting but like once a season and then Why especially screening three to an absolutely obsessed with especially stream to i think screen to like the heights of nineties horror even more than the first one i also think it's peak west craven. I think it's as best directed movie. It's just such a wild fun energetic. And that cast the cast one was good stream to his cast is like just such a time capsule if the class we just did a rewatch screamed to like a week love and love the the classroom scenes like sarah. Michelle gellar josh jackson. Jerry conscious all offense Jamie kennedy like jerry. O'connell elise neal. Like its peak the peak of sidney prescott gale weathers are in the series so i'm absolutely obsessed with them my credit for being the thing that made me want to be a writer in the first place so those those movies have like a really special place in my heart and i just can't wait. Oh what are your hopes for. The new scream. Why read it. What you ted. I got so rate. I can't tell you anything other than its The script blocking the trio is used to perfection for the first time since scream to. I think you'll love the new characters and story. I can say that. I'm so excited. Yeah it's a great script a really great smit like very smart. I went in reading thinking. Like what else are they gonna have to say about or at this point because there's not to me like the first joe especially spoke to the trends that were going on at the time you know or like the downward trend that was going on with the first one came out it was just like what are they gonna commonly like a twenty four like not enough people know about eight twenty four or are they gonna talk. I don't know there's just like the beauty of horror right now. Is there so much of it and it's also very different. That there really isn't a trend but they really found an angle that i think people are going to be surprised by and i don't want to spoil that because it's it's actually pretty clever Excited yeah it's really good. So i heard. Chris landed on another podcast. Tell his story of how freaky came to be a so now. It's your turn to tell your side of the story. We at the same story and i know that it all started with you. Yeah you know so. The story always starts out on a downer note because it starts with my dad dying. Just laugh at it thanks. Dad died in april twenty eight team. And i had a i had a rough go of it right after we had a really good relationship but we also had a little bit of tension ever since i came out to him so there was a lot of regret when he died and also a lot of anger. But also a lot of sadness. Because i did love my dad. But i was sitting.

It's life is now just like not even series of highs and lows but just kind of like a steady low where you don't play any of the things that you'd used to enjoy it's like just can't feel joy anymore. Yeah yeah it's hard. It's hard to but somebody should be grateful for so you started to tell us about your dog before we started recording. can you. can you tell us the story of how she came to the family of strode ladies creepy stroke so i i was working a production job when we sold freaky so i But we'd always wanted a dog but my boyfriend who works for warner brothers. Yeah i was working at family. Guy who dave is. Not the invade. And i know damian. I was working production family guy in both. Were like we want a dog but we didn't think it was fair to bring a dog into the house of one of us wasn't going to be home with during the day. I didn't want to be a dog ad that was putting the dog in a crate for nine hours a day so we always said when one of us had the opportunity to work at home we would get the dog and that happened when i sold bricky i was So freaky then. Three months later. I sold a pitch because of the freaky project So i was able to quit my day job and be home with the dog starting january of this year so she was christmas present from my boyfriend. And did you quit the job in a blaze of glory ingest. Buck everybody storm out. I actually had two ships at family guy between writing gigs. Which is funny. I was there for four years and then wrote on cd show for a year and a half and then kind of career. Just should the bed so i had a bay thankfully brought me back into the fold toward production again so i actually didn't. Why did though however give two heads of freaky. Like i went down. I went down. I went to go down to set for three weeks and then my plan was to come back and work through the rest of the year and while i was down there my pitch officially sold in the deal closed in everything so i called my boss like my boss at the time. He was like a great friend. Still to this day and finish you picked up. The phone is like your quitting. Aren't you saw so. I actually put in two weeks finished my three weeks down in atlanta did go back to la did come back to la worked those two weeks because they were very good to me and they let me leave for three weeks to go on this film and and then i immediately went back to atlanta to finish up the shoe so i could be there for the rest of it.

Okay he okay yeah. He's really young in season one. Yeah So i've been watching that and i I did rewatch a started rewatch Watch seinfeld they did a really watch will and grace but as far as the new stuff is going.

"API's Google API's. Do you have a sense of the breakdown for how does it data scientists leverage the cloud API's like the image recognition API or are people still just kind of building everything themselves no. I feel like Mike Talking to some of the folks that say as her and stuff like that some of those sort of pre canned. Ai Things at you know some of the cognitive services and things like that those are typically used more by people who are developers or technical in some way but they're not machine learning AI specialists right and if you're a real specialist you probably using something like tensor flow occurs and just writing the code directly against that but I do see even even in that realm of professional data scientists machine learning folks they might put that into a docker container and then run that on the GP's in the high end processors and servers on aws on easy to or on Azure or something like that. That's pretty common changing the topic. When when I was a early on in my career I did some internships at Ruby based companies and both of the companies that I worked at had made this his transition to Jay Ruby which is like the Java runtime version of Ruby that allowed I think the main thrust was to allow for higher performance garbage collection because if you translate your Ruby into into Java then you get to use the Java Java byte code and all the associated breakthroughs in garbage collection and I think the same thing happened to some extent in the python ecosystem you you have Jonathan Yeah and then you also you've had some episodes on the subject you also have people who build custom compilers for Python and you know I guess that takes Python essentially from an interpreted language to a pre compiled language which allows for higher performance give me any thoughts or the state of the compilation ecosystem the compilation and execution ecosystem python and why people take aac these alternative paths to compiling their code sure I guess the simple quick.

"The probably the most popular web framework even today in terms of volume of web developers working on it could be wrong about that but I feel like the Python web frameworks have caught up in terms of at least there are very substantial tantrum communities around them. I know there was always a substantial community around Django but Jenga was never trendy as rails but I feel like flask. The Flask Python web framework has achieved some moderate level of trendy nece. Am I correct their trending and returning this in an important way in the sense that you actually get the network effects needed to build a substantial community which leads to the edges being sanded more quickly quickly. It's really interesting the difference between Flask and Chango those are definitely the two most popular ones and until I think last year Jenga was more popular at at least in terms of number of web developers using that as their primary web remark but if you look at the rate of change flask is growing doing more quickly and looks like it just eclipsed Django but will actually continue to do so flask is interesting because it has all these little plug plug ins and extensions and stuff that you can grab and bring all these pieces together. I think those two frameworks have a really different philosophy and it kind of depends on what you're drawn to write like jingle comes with a lot of what you need a prepackaged and put together say if you want an Admin back end while you kind of just turn turn that on and go have little data cable type of measurement thing for your your database whereas with flask you're creating Orem classes and if you want an admin section. Wellm you know start writing code in some html and put your admin stuff in there and it's all about little tiny building blocks in flask and more like three builds big legos. I don't know the big block legos versatile tiny lines. It's kind of how I think of you as a programmer you think in objects with Mongo. DB So does your database database Mongo. DB is the most popular document based database built for modern application developers and the cloud era millions of developers use Mongo ONGO DB to power the world's most innovative products and services from crypto currency to online gaming.

"Here's at least like it's really interesting but mixed in with that probably doesn't make sense to say. Oh and guess what on Tuesday. There's going to be the last day for call for papers papers for this random conference right those are just so incompatible in my mind so I decided to create Talk Python me which tells these evergreen stories and Python Bites which is basically basically like a weekly newsletter but an audio form with commentary right so that's where the transient stuff that keeps the community up to date. It's supposed to go and then talked thought his where these long-term stories go. Do you think there's something about the podcast infrastructure that is immature because we have this overloaded medium where I wake up. I look at my podcast player and I I don't know about you but I subscribe hi to a lot of podcasts and too many well. I would say not enough still sure. It's a matter of time though you so you know. I feel bad for not listening to them but I gotta just treated more like twitter. I guess that's see that's the thing that's how I view it is. It's like you know my podcast. Feed should feel l. like youtube to some extent. It should feel like an overwhelming amount of content that I will never get to actually even youtube doesn't quite feel that way yet. I still feel like I reached the bottom of the the meaningful content that is at least being served to me but do you think there's something wrong with the way that the infrastructure is currently currently presenting podcast to us. Do you think the form factor for podcast consumption will change. I don't know if it'll probably will change a hadn't really thought not too much about it but your analogy with Youtube and I guess mind with twitter. A little bit makes me feel like the way my at least my podcast player apps like for example. I use overcast on on iphone. He shows me a bunch of shows and then your show my show others and then I can drill into it and they'll say well. Here's the recent ones and the ones I've downloaded and so on and you're right what I should really see is. Here's the the flow of all the stuff I'm interested in. I think that that would be great. I don't know how well podcasts work for for very timely stuff. Unfortunately I wish it was better right like there might be something timely on your show. It came out the next day but I didn't get around to pull it out of my. Let's listen to it for three weeks and then it's too late. You know that's that's tricky and I don't know it's like net flicks having news or something I it's a little weird exactly right. Well you know I it is both the treasure and the shortcoming of the podcast infrastructure that it's not an algorithm mcphee. None of these I mean is there. There are podcast players that I have tried this but anyway. Let's talk about Python. Maybe we can get back to podcasting much as I love talking about podcast idiosyncrasies so the interesting thing about podcast talking about software is that the industry changes so quickly so even in a short span of four and a half years that you've been doing your podcast..

"Michael Kennedy welcome to Software Engineering Daily. It's really great to be here. Thank you for having me. It's an honor to be on your show so I'm really excited. I'm looking forward to talking to you and everyone in your audience absolutely so you host to podcast related to python. The first one is talk python to me. What did you like about python so much that compelled you to start a podcast devoted entirely to the programming language. You know it's interesting. It's not so much that I felt like I was a super expert in python. When I started the podcast I had only been doing python for a couple of years but I've always been a podcast fan. I suspect you've been a podcast fan for a long time as well addict yeah absolutely and you know. I find the medium just incredible. I've got a really busy life. I have kids at the time I had a job and you know always want to squeeze in this extra level of learning especially around programming and stuff and I found podcasts casts were perfect for that and I've been listening to them since like two thousand three two thousand four probably they weren't even call that. They were just like well an audio. RSS Feed or something right and and what I found when I got into python was there were no podcasts for python developers there had been there have been three or four and they had all all stopped at least six months for at least a six month period right so for longer back. I'm like I don't understand why this is why they're no podcasts and you what if no one else is going to do it and I wanna have a podcast or I can hear these stories and the background and the history and what's going on you know I guess I'll just have to make one and so that was the the idea is like I just wanted there to be a podcast for the python community for very selfish reasons initially but also being podcast fan. I was always on the look out of like like win. Is there an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution not be the tenth Javascript podcast or whatever you know where where would people really value this and so. I thought I'll give this a try for a few months of people make fun of me and it seems like it's a really I'm not doing a good job or even if they don't appreciate it. I'll stop. I'll give it a shot and it just you know it's taken off from. There and it's been great when you think about the podcast medium. Are you a historian. Are you a day to day journalist. Are you somebody WHO's trying to create durable all content. Are you somebody WHO's trying to create daily updates. That may have an expiration date. Tell me how you think about the content durability that you're working with. I think of it having sort of two modes. I think of myself primarily as a storyteller I think thank you so much around programming gets polished down to just the final essence and the people behind it and its original reason and all those things just get polished away and lost. If you don't hear the story of why did you do this or you know what came before this and so and so first and foremost I think of the job to sort of tell those stories and humanize technology but I also see it as both durable and Evergreen and very temporal and that's why I created to podcasts because talk python to me I interview people like scientists working gene at large Hadron collider or the linear collider and using machine learning to discover particles right like that that is good for a couple of years..
