"And welcome to the view yesterday. You know who gave his first. Post-election loss interviewed some rea- bartsch lomo where he continued his baseless claims of a rigged election and even through his own intelligence agencies under the bus. Now take a look total fraud. And how the fbi and department of justice. I don't know maybe they're involved but how people are allowed to get away from this with this stuff is unbelievable. We won the easily. There's no way. Joe biden eighty million votes. I just said there's no way. Joe biden beat barack obama in the black communities of various cities. And then he did very badly compared to obama in other cities throughout the united states. There's no way it happened. This election was a fraud it was a rigged election. This is disgusting and we cannot allow america's election to be corrupted. Let's not get into what's disgusting here please. I mean georgia. Republicans are taking his claims very seriously asking. Rnc chief ron a mcdaniel why they should bother voting in the runoff senate election. If democrats are already rid the outcome. Here's what he said. It's not decided. First of all david purdue still has one hundred thousand vote toll lead over john asif right now with the with with the certification. So if you lose your faith and you don't vote and people walk away that that will decide it. I mean i don't. I don't i'm really sick of all of this. Really sick of people blaming american citizens for cheating in their own elections. I'm sick of this year blaming republican. Governors you're blaming people who are saying actually know why would they fight against their own interest and if again i will say if the democrats dominant why is everybody still got a job. None of this makes sense to me and you know who is planning to head down to georgia will then help our her things joy which what do you think. I mean. This is just insane this whole thing. Will you think joy at first of all. Can we just say that. The body snatchers have gotten to maria badeah. Romo i happen to her okay. that's one. She was a great financial great financial woman in now. I don't know who she is. Oh my god. But i think it's going to be hard for him to campaign for kelly leffler who was under investigation by the doj for benefit for benefiting from stock options She made after getting private briefing after the outbreak of covid and georgia lost everything. But she didn't she made money so that's pretty odious right. There and democrats and republicans in georgia should be aware of that but i believe that his presence could backfire on him and the republican party because they keep you just saw ronna mcdaniel and talking about how it's going to. They're not going to vote if they think it's rigged. Well here's the one who's telling everybody it's rigged so why would republican voters now. Vote for anybody stay home. Eighty eight percent of republicans believed that trump won the election. Can you imagine it's like it's like a country psychosis going on. So why bother showing. They're going to just stay home. I think it's gonna work for the democrats sunny what do you. What do you think about all this. This insanity i mean. Some of the claims he made in the interview yesterday. Were so outrageous. It's especially when he talked about black. Voters will be just seems to me that he is surprised that all the attempts at voter suppression all the attempts at gerrymandering all the attempts at screwing around with the us postal service those attempts were ineffective and our our our institutions held. And i think that is what is surprising this president and his supporters. Because we know that that's what was at play especially in a place like georgia. That was certainly a play in michigan and detroit. They really attacked black. Constituents black voters that was that was the plant and it just didn't work. Probably because of people like latasha brown. And stacey abrams right. So i think that's where some of the surprise is coming from and i think what's also fascinating. He he just needs to go to losers anonymous like he is is really in a psychosis right now. And i'm surprised that the people around him like his daughter like jared kushner who somehow is on his way to the middle east adam and stay why he has to go to the middle east today but or this week. I think that they need to stage some sort of intervention at this point because he is now damaging the republican party even further with with all of this rhetoric right. And what are you. What about you sarah. You hear this and you think what well the first thing that jumps out at me. Is we just heard. Trump himself saying to maria bartiromo about the fraud but his lawyers are going into court and having to say blatantly. This is not a fraud problem because there are legal consequences to lying in a courtroom. There are not legal consequences to lying on tv so the repeatedly hearing that. I'm just like your lawyers your own legal team or saying this is no such thing that is not what's happening and in regard to what sunny said about black voters. It is possible that they As she was saying that they got that many votes because we had historic had a historical turnout more than we have in since then since one thousand nine hundred so yes it's possible. He got more votes than barack obama. Because we had more voters turn out than we've ever had in the history of this century but in in beyond that. I think it's interesting. That the the ronald mcdonald ronald mcdonald. I almost called her. Ronald mcdonald. ronna mcdaniel monday. People said in that quote that don't lose the faith. It's the republican party. That's telling people not to trust the system but they kind of called it before the election was over so now they might be shooting themselves in their own foot. Because you have people saying we're not gonna show up when it was a republican advantage in georgia georgia. These runoffs usually serve republicans. And then last but not least two top. The cherry on top hardcore trump supporters have decided to boycott the election in georgia. Because it's rigged so we don't have voters the trump supporters to thank for possibly winning the senate what the crazy thing is all of those all of those republicans who tried their damnedest to make sure that no one could say that there was any shenanigans going on who made sure that the vote was crystal clear and done well they are paying the price for upholding laws.

I, remember you and Paul and Bj as a little trio, probably because you were the writers who were with the actor, so between takes you guys would always kind of huddle up and talk like story ideas, and like what's happening in the writer's room, and so you were having to kind of manage to jobs at once and I used to like hover around you guys and eavesdrop, and just like hope you would invite me into your Hilali. Yes, some of my favorite memories are listening to you. Guys Discuss Story and character and pitch jokes to each other inbetween seen well. That's so funny because I felt like. In the annex. We'd and we were. The writers were antics. I'm sure you guys have talked about this many times. We're in the annex. Obviously, because then we could go be the writer's room and we wouldn't have to be in some of the big group scenes, but I remember also thinking like I want to be in the big group scenes like I like. Those were the funnest scenes to watch when like. Dwight would run in and be like everyone through the roof like we were left out of those scenes like. About, dwelling so here's a couple of things that I felt were may be interesting. To say, which was that we only cast my parents in it, which seems just like a complete act of nepotism and favoritism. Because we had auditioned the parts and Greg had felt that the actors we'd found that age group like the late fifties early sixties were like a little bit to either theatrical for style of acting on our show or chew stilted, because they had no acting experience. Now I'm the first to say that my parents acting was also very stilted, but he was at least they bear some familial resemble. It's A. Bill jets. Will just like. Put them in there and I. Don't know if you remember this, but I remember going into. My mom was like had this energy of like.

"But you're, you're right, Mindy. There were these pairings that would happen. That were just as pure and beautiful as what was happening in Scranton and you know I got the DVD box set and I watched the deleted scenes and there so many scenes at Stanford that never made it in like. There's the really hector that's like always like was always breastfeeding. Make. Had, it would make Jim really uncomfortable and then as far as this episode I. Do have a question for you. Because I was texting with Rashida and she was like this is the episode I was so worried everyone was going to hate me because Jim and Karen have the sloppy. Make out out in the parking lot. Yeah, tipsy, make out! It's not in the deleted scenes. It didn't even make that cut and the shooting draft Oh yeah, did receipt at? The end up shooting that because I was GONNA ask about that, too. When I was going I have the shooting draft from this episode I went back and I read it and I was like wait. What? Jim and Karen Kiss Yeah there. Why are they making? Oh, but then it's nowhere in the episode and it's not in the deleted scenes while I have A. Memory even though I was writer obviously for the episode, I have zero memory of that. But I will say that one thing that we used to do I felt a lot was to write scripts that advance story, and then what we noticed when we only had twenty one and a half minutes to air an episode that such a little went such a long way like if there's an attractive woman who is working in the new environment, and she seems to have some kind of rapport, which or together. They're making fun of Andy. You're like Oh. That's interesting. That might be something and so it felt like we were always like pulling back that stuff like Jenner. Don't you feel like you shot a lot of stuff with? With John, that was like. Not like because you guys weren't like super flirty in those early seasons like overtly flirty, but like that you watch it and you're like Oh. This was like they. They used like less than I thought they would. In terms of like showing your guys is like Budding Romance. Yes, and I would also add that. There were some scenes where we would get in I. Don't know if I would call it fights, but there were some disagreements in certain episodes, and they would pull back on those two and they they would make them smaller. I wonder if it's interesting, is just like for so much of the show in terms of romance, it was always like less as more awareness for comedy. It was like let's hoist up Tony Gardner onto the table.

"First season Classic Episode Diversity Day written by the Great Bijan Novak I remember the rim. He loved this idea Greg Love. This idea of Michael Scott offending all these people, but it's like it's. It's kind of the funniest version of it when there's some minority people there to who can get extra offended so at that time I think it just made sense to have another minority person and I was like. I'll do it I actually. I did volunteer. He's like he's I had two lines in that episode and he's A. Do you WanNa be of course in so Diversity Day Yeah Thank Heavens. That was the second episode because then that guest starred then. I think maybe once or twice that first season I wasn't very much, and then second season was like I sort of saw more lines, and yes, that's how it happened. What blew me away? Mindy is when I think back on that and I was I was sort of reading back on wikipedia about all of us, and where we're at in our lives at that time, and you were twenty four. And that blows my mind your. You had your act together to me for someone at twenty four. You! You're amazing. 'cause at twenty four. I was I. Think I was doing takeout at Shenzhen's. I wasn't a waiter was just doing a hostess job. Do you know? If. They'll thank you for saying that. I mean I. Love to feel like I was a wonder can, but you know what it is is that it's just the life of a writer comedy writer in the life of an actor, or they're just so they're so different. Right like it's so I. It's very hard to break into comedy writing, but I do think that is easier than breaking into acting. Because if you can write, you can write your opportunities and write a Spec script that you know then you can use in. Send out whereas like when you're young actor. You're like I just hope someone calls me in to see something, so thank you for saying that. But you know it also. It felt less special because BJ's there. He was the same age he'd already written on a show at twenty four. So it's just what I was like. Oh, I guess I'm young in cool? He was like Oh. Yeah, already worked on, he was on a Bob, Saggy Sitcom, and make sure was like twenty eight in already had like an emmy and bidded SNL for nine years or something crazy so. There was no sense of Lake. You could ever think you were special or like ahead of the curve or anything like that with aggravated people will I always thought you were special. Thank you, thanks Angela. Are should. We get into this episode? John Yes! Did you get a chance to rewatch it? Yes, dead! What was it like for you to?.

"Subscribe to shortwave from NPR. Let's get back to my interview with Mindy Kaeling. She Co created and is the main writer of the new series. Never I ever which has now streaming on net flicks. She got her start on the series. The office playing Kelly Kapoor. She was also a writer and producer on the series so last year you had a movie called late night in which you played an aspiring comic who gets a job basically. She's the minority higher for late night. Tv show tonight show. Connor show that that's been hosted for thirty years by a woman played by Emma Thompson and Emma. Thompson's character has become kind of out of touch with what people especially younger people find funny She's very arrogant But she's told by the executives than the the show becomes more relevant in the ratings pickup. She's out so to shake things up a little bit figures okay. We'll do a minority hires. She hires us. It's not like she has any faith in you. It's kind of like you're hired. And then you have to deal with an all white male writers room and a host to is pretty condescending. Were you a diversity higher when you started working on the office. Yes yes proud diversity higher and do you think like that was a successful diversity? Higher like you were hired to add diversity. Diversity was needed and you turned out to be exceptionally talented. So it was kind of I mean. Do you see that as a win win. Win for the office and a win for you definitely. I think the program was invaluable and I think that. Nbc was at that time. The only one of the major networks. That was doing something like that at the time. I didn't think so At the time I thought it was really humiliating. Actually because the way that that works is a diversity. Higher is no cost to the show so when you get hired And you're a minority and through the NBC Diversity Hiring Program you know that the NBC is paying the cost of your salary. Not The show. So that's why the show is incentivized to hire minorities and What ends up happening. There's this phenomenon that would happen there. Is that a writer get hired for a year and then they only pay your salary the first year so if you are going to continue on for second year. They won't pay her salary anymore. So you'd have this phenomenon on these shows because other network started doing the same thing where you'd have a minority writer who is a staff writer. Which is the entry level writing job? And then the next year there'd be a different staff writer because it to promote them the show would have to take on the cost of staff so everybody knows that this is the case so when you go into a show your biggest sensitivity is that everyone thinks the only reason you were hired is because you were free whereas everyone else had. They had to pay good money for them. And I don't know whether how much people are actually thinking about that or whether that was just in my head but it was just one of these subtle ways that I felt that I was a little bit less than the other writers. But it's tricky right because the programs incredible and it got me into the business and many other people who now have have nice careers in Hollywood. Yeah it's it's a complicated thing I that's why I wrote the movie late night because I wanted to talk about it. The office is having this huge resurgence. Misuse Renaissance. It's I think. Sound like three different channels including comedy central. There's like marathons. What impact is that having on a new seeing that security is like not only back on TV. But it's pretty popular you know. It's incredible it's funny. How many fourteen fifteen year old kids will come up to me at the airport? Because they've been cheated on net flicks and they've seen everything I mean. I remember about three or four years ago. I got a call from one of my agent saying hey this young singer. Songwriter would love to sample a section of one of your episodes. I think you wrote it in your voice in it as Kelly demand if they do that she's like an l. a. based indie singer Songwriter. And I said yes. Sure that's fine. She and I just assigned something and it was Billy Bush and she wrote a song called. It was called my strange addiction. Which is one of her big hits and the song samples different parts of the office because she loves the show so much in fact she would even say it's not love it's like she's obsessed with the show and she seen. I think she seemed the entire series from season one to season nine all the way through like four or five times and so she wrote a song about it and I'm sampled in it and I didn't. I didn't understand who she was at the time. So attack this real impact on this this younger generation. It's been great because that's not a show that I think could be made now or not. I think there's just a heightened sensitivity now to viewers. That wasn't there when the show came out. But it's it's strange right because the show is more popular now than it was. I think even than when we first certainly the first season of the show where we really struggled I think that network executives the way that Michael Scott behaves in the kind of stuff that he says. I think they would have a real fear that there would be blogs and articles and petitions written against them. I remember in the first season of the office. There is a joke where diversity day where Michael is talking to a Mexican American character named Oscar and he says you know Oscar. You're Mexican in an Oscar. Says he has no pride Mexican says well. Is there a term you would like to use it less offensive? And then he's like then Mexican and he's like there isn't anything offensive. And it's this. It's this big it's a it's a very like icon. Michael Scott Joke. But I can't see you know I'm creating shows now I can't see that being okay with a lot of heads of studios and networks to have that kind of show and the reason why the joke is funny because this character has this is so sweetly bigoted you know and I think. That'd be hard to reconcile. Now how can you care to be so bigoted but you still cheer for him and you still want him to become a better person. And I think there's so much fear now of a bad reaction from people that they don't want to take those kind of creative risks and do you think that that's a shame I do i. I'm not offended by very much. But then again I have also not been marginalized a lot of ways that people are so it's tricky. I grew up loving comedy. I give people the benefit of the doubt so general. I'm less offended but at the same time There are people who are you know? I'm I think I'm very lucky. But it's too bad because I I do think the show is very funny and I don't think you know having been there. I do not think it was made by people who are trying to be offensive or push forth you know bad a- bad agendas so it. I think it's too bad jokes about how clueless Michael is. It's it's yeah it's it's not an insult against Being Mexican I. It's it's a joke about how Michael never gets it right but Michael is also the lead of the show and the person who's point of view or often the one you hope finds love and and I think that would maybe be problematic now whereas if he was a side character that was supposed to be like the racist guy that would be a little bit easier to stomach but he was the person in power but in madman wrong. You know I'm often surprised at what's on. Tv and I just think that sometimes network since studios underestimate what Americans can handle and how sophisticated they are what they watch and has a fear that people will misinterpret a joke or you know. Be like very sensitive in a way that you hadn't expected. Has that been inhibiting your writing in any way. That's such a good question you know we. There's so much in. Never have I ever. That could be construed as offensive but because I think the lead is what people would call like marginalized person like a young Indian American girl. I think we're able to get away with stuff. Because of certain powerlessness that that demographic hasn't society honestly so I think it's easier for our character to lash out or her mother to say things that could potentially be offensive. Because it's like okay. Well you know they don't have a ton of power in this country right now and in terms of other shows I think with why I think students in our could be shy about doing that as I think honestly getting cancelled like. I'm not getting handled like in terms of TV terms but the cancel culture and litigation And fearing that. We're going to be you know the networks going to be the next woody allen getting dropped by His Book Publisher. Tina like for for something that they did. So I do think there's a lot of fear about that stuff that was not there in two thousand four when we started the show. Let's take another show break here. If you're just joining us.

When you are on our show in twenty twelve your mother had died within the previous year and we had talked about that. A little bit and you. You had mentioned that when your mother was dying. She had pancreatic cancer and the cancer really changed her. And that nearly a year after her death you were still having trouble remembering your mother from before. She got sick as the memories of her being sick. We're still so vivid in your mind and I knew exactly what you meant because I went through the same thing with my mother when she was very sick with cancer. And I'm wondering if the images of your pre-cancer mother have come back to you as vividly as the post cancer images while I am..

"That's friends without the our best fiends. Let's get back to my interview with Mindy Kaeling. She Co created and is the main writer of the new series. Never have I ever which just started streaming on. Netflix DRAWS. Some of her own high school experiences. It's about a sophomore in high school named Davey whose parents are from India. David is one of the schools best students but wishes she was one of the most popular. She's far from it. She's considered nerdy an attractive killing. I became known for her role on the office. As Kelly Kapoor she was also a writer and producer of this series. She starred in the series the MINDY PROJECT LAST YEAR. She started the movie comedy late night as the diversity higher in the writer's room of a late night. Tv show. She also wrote the movie when I interviewed you in twenty twelve. You mentioned and I don't remember what the context is. You mentioned that you're interested in the prejudices. That minorities have against other minorities. And you thought that that was a really good comedy era area and you work that into your new series in that. There's a an Indian woman who decided not to get the arranged marriage. She was supposed to have and she married a Muslim man and then they divorced and none of the women in this particular Indian community. WanNa talk with her because she had married him Muslim man. Is that an example of what you were talking about. In terms of prejudices. Some minorities have about other minorities of course in India in India can doozer not a minority but in America they are. Yeah absolutely. I think that is definitely an example of that. I have seen firsthand the racism that Hindus feel towards Muslims. Because of you know it's it's it's weird to inherit a prejudice because it's something that's based in India. You know because I think it's about Kashmir issues and issues. That table is in India. And then you're supposed to inherit them when you're When you're here too and so we that character felt Really true to my childhood. And my life of a woman who'd made a choice and then was a shunned because of it and what you find funny about those tensions. I find it funny because to the average white American. We're probably the same. The you know this is like to me. It's really narcissism of small differences to average American person looking at someone who's dark skin Indian Hindu person in a dark skin in Muslim person. I don't think anyone thinks there's a big difference between me. And as he's on sorry but his family you know he's I think atheist but his family is Muslim and his dad grew up in this same town. My Dad grew up in in south India but my dad's Hindu. So there's this you know the giant chasm for people who are Indian about about our different families but to the outside personnel. Both Indian as he's in mindy are they related to each other probably like that's I find that comical so for you and is on. Sorry it's more of a bond than a difference. Yes Yeah we've actually talked about it too. I think when he started on Parkson Rack and I had been on the Office. We got so many tweets where people said. Oh they should be together they should date and it was like why because reading to Indian people on NBC. So I think it's funny when our communities try to find lots of different reasons why we're so different when you know a majority of probably this country things were identical. Yeah so you ended up going to Dartmouth College You got your degree in play writing and then you went to New York and started doing. Stand up what was the comedy scene like than what year are we talking? This is I moved just before Nine eleven so this is the fall of two thousand one until two thousand four is when I was in New York so frightening time to start a new life on your own in New York. Yeah you know that experience being there for that it really. You know because we weren't able to use the subway. Even I mean if that post nine eleven New York was it was. We didn't have jobs so we would walk across the Brooklyn Bridge just after because we and we walked to the village we'd spend like an hour and a half walking from Brooklyn to different restaurants to try to get you know waitressing gigs. You know his twenty one. I don't know why I would think it felt normal but everyone else my age is doing the same thing so so when you started trying out comedy stand up comedy in New York. What was your material like? I remember thinking okay. I do not want to be pegged as an ethnic comedian. I shorten my name because Emcees for these comedy shows would have trouble pronouncing it and then they'd make a joke about my last name. What was that I never wanted to Line real name is Vera Mindy Choke Allingham and its Indian name and it's a long name and as a performer. These comedians would just butcher it and then be like I don't know what it is. Just this girl mindy and so I would go do stand up and I already felt like a huge distance from the audience just as a new comedian but then even more distance because it had been made so clear that I was ethnic. And then you know when you to comedy everyone from Albert Brooks you know Woody Allen. These are all comedians who changed their names and I felt it was the easiest thing for me to do ultimately it was really beneficial to to do it and it was something that I had like a lot of mixed feelings about but my parents didn't mind I talked to them about it and then I ended up shortening in it and I have to say and I say this bittersweet but I have to say it was such a help to my career tavern name that people could pronounce So you didn't WanNa do ethnic material. So what was your material like Really bad observational. Like poor man's like Jerry Seinfeld observations about New York and my life. It was honestly trying to be so many different things. I Love Jerry Seinfeld so I try to do material like him. I Love Sarah. Silverman's detracted immaterial like like her and ultimately you can't do go into Santa comedy trying to do someone else's act very poorly so I gave up doing it. I think only probably did stand up for a year and a half and even during that it wasn't a concentrated time I would go. Do Open makes once every two weeks. If the real reason I did it was. It was my only way to dip my toes into the waters of comedy. That was free and accessible. Because you couldn't just be like. Hey I want to go for Saturday night live. Can you just like have me come do it? And there wasn't You know programs in place to discover talent that were You know didn't necessarily look like what they already had. So it was. My only access was through. Stand up because it was accessible and free when you're in college. You had an internship on late night with Conan. O'brien how did you get that? I remember because this was Before twitter before instagram they had a page in the very early nineteen ninety nine the very early NBC website and it was little. I think it was just like. Nbc Dot Com backslash internships and. They had their list of shows. And you'd Click on it and then you would just send a fax. I went to the Kinko's in like an into Hanover. Have like a like a Kinko's open from nine to four and so I just printed out my high. My College resume which was less than half a page and I just sent it with a cover letter to this number and then two weeks later. We got a call on like landline. My dorm so it was. One of those things is hard. Remember nearly like you don't know that anyone received your resume. You don't know If you're ever hear anything back there's no you know receipts. I didn't you know an email or anything. So that's how I did it and I had to then interview. I had to go to New York to interview with the head of the intern program which was like a fifteen minute interview. But I got to go to thirty rock. That experience of going there by myself was the one of the most glamorous experiences of my life. But I wasn't in the raiders. Jim I got to interact with the raiders. I got to take their lunch orders. Not Dino deliver photocopies to them. But I didn't. I wasn't able to sit in the raiders in hero. Here how they made the show. Let me reintroduce you here.

"Afterwards there were a lot of times when it would flare up what I was the office because that was when I was so green to that I I didn't understand the hierarchical nature of a writer's room and so you know I also had a big chip on my shoulder because I was at least the first or the only woman and for a while the only minority like fulltime writer that was there and so I It would flare up. A lot of the good news is that my boss and my mentor was was this very forgiving. Greg Daniels and I've talked about him before and her show. But he was someone who is the opposite he's inherited. He's very methodical in kind and thoughtful. And I think he kind of was his responsibility to be patient with me about those things. And that's actually something that now when I have so many younger riders many of whom are minorities are young women like. I have really been confronted with okay. We have to kind of do a greg did because my natural inclination is someone is fighting with me. And I'm their boss is to quell it by screwing them but now I I really try to remember what Greg did and try to replicate that as much as I can. In this series the main character meets a friend who is now at Princeton. Which is one of the places that your character would like to end up in after high school and she tells him of Sheikh. She's a princeton away from home she'd be come an atheist and he'd burgers and have a white boyfriend but her friend who actually is it. Princeton says well. He thought maybe he feel that way too but he has a native American roommate which has made them think a lot more about his own Indian heritage. Did you go through an experience like that yourself? Yeah must exactly my best friend from college. One of my small group of Friends is native from Montana and when we got to college I was not part of the Indian Alliance Group It didn't occur to me to be part of that but she became very big in the native Americans like student coalition and they would have Palau's and they she would live in she lived in the Nat House which is the native American housing and she was so Proud to be native and she was so proud to share it with her friends and I remember feeling really embarrassed about that because I I didn't have that relationship with being Indian or Hindu and we went to visit her in Montana and went to the reservation where she grew up and she would very probably say growth on the rise. I can't wait for you to meet my friends at I grew up with and I felt kind of ashamed. I thought like you know. Why is she so proud of this and Never Americans is country have been through so much more than I think Indian Americans have and she's so of it and maybe that's the reason why actually that she was Is there's like defiance in it but I did not have that same relationship with being Indian and I remember being really ashamed. That's a moment that we put into the Ganesh Pooja episode as her wondering why she has that relationship with her faith and with culture so we were talking about. You didn't have a boyfriend in highschool and your character. So far is kind of striking out did. Did your parents have strict views about dating or sex when you were growing up? And how did how did their views compared to what you want it and how you behaved. Well it's so funny. Bring that up. I was I was talking about this the other day. Because it was a real paradox. There was we were told overtly that no one was allowed to date while they were in high school Not that there's anybody knocking on my door or anything like that. But that was a real rule that was not allowed to have a boyfriend at the same time. My mother really wanted me to dress very feminine league. Get my eyebrows done. She was totally fine with us. Going to Sephora to buy makeup doing my hair and I was very important to her so it was. It was interesting. She wanted to me to be kind of conventionally attractive and girly I would even say more so than other moms but then also shut the door on any kind of me having any romantic possibilities in high school which I thought was interesting. Well how do you reconcile those two ideas making you more feminine as attractive as possible but not warning you to have intimate relationships with boys? I think she wanted me to be perfect so she wanted me to be a beautiful and for people to want to be friends with me and for people to think I was attractive but then also Pristine and not having a physical relationship with boy which let me underline would never have happened anyway but but so that everybody would want to be my friend and I think it was attractive and pretty also had was just this very focused hard working kid who just wanted to go to college Get into a great school and I think that is something that would have made a really proud I was fifty percent of that. So you know I was the hard working kid got I wasn't the other thing but you know I I tried would you have gone against your parents wishes about sex. How you have the opportunity which you've made it clear your heartbeat in a heartbeat. If Adam Brody Ted if my pitcher about him brody from Nineteen ninety-four wanted me to go to become his steady girlfriend. Oh I would have died. Had this like stealthy deceit filled romantic relationship with him while also taking AP classes. I mean it was my dream to have it all but you know that that did not happen. So let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining us my guest is Mindy killing and her new series never have I ever just started streaming on net flicks.

I don't believe in like a standard yeah our yeah i don't believe in in the whole like to our shows or i feel like it's it becomes about more about the comedian and the ego of the comedian they wanna stay on stage for all those hours as opposed to the enjoyment of the audience so i feel like you know people who wanna do these two hour sets.

"I'll tell you, I went to man and took a play writing, but I felt that I like pretty much learned nothing from play writing in college. I think the classes I took in terms of writing didn't help. He's not. The classes were bad. It's just that wasn't experiences that helped me. It was writing short plays for my friends to perform because that's when I got to see. Okay. What you actors like to say how to actress do because otherwise, when you're just taking class, you have no idea. You can write a one. I play try to write a. Full length play, but we've great professors, but none of that was really helpful. Frankly, none of that was really fun. It was all extracurriculars college. That kind of taught me what I wanted to do because I took improv and I would do these like short one I plays that. I'd put up at our like blackbox theatre Dharma's in. That's what was like, okay, we'll, this is really what I wanna do. So doing this extra things like, how did you did you find a tribe of really great smart fund people you could start to write for? Or what was the? How did you get into that stuff? Because what you're describing seems very with a lot of people like whatever the degree they got. Great. But it was everything else that was not part of the college curriculum that was relate what they learned during those years. It will you really helped me because I really wanted to make friends and I was nervous about making friends. So what helped me was as like, okay, I'm this loser who came to college. I have no friends. I really liked dynamic funny actor type personalities because they didn't know what a comedy writer was or anything back then. And so. So I met them, they're doing improv, and because I was like funny enough to get in the improv team though, not like the funniest person on the team by any measure. Those are the people that I started hanging out with, and then I was like, oh, it'd be fun to write for them. And what I found is often I would write myself parts and things simply because there is just at least in Dartmouth in the early two, thousands, there was not a ton of young women that were like, oh, I wanna really put myself out there as comedian. So I was, I kind of did it because we, I was like, oh, there's Mel roles and I loved the attention, but I was more scared of it. Now coming out of college. What was your plan and what were the actual? I kind of know months and years like come out of college at what was the next steps you did yet? That was a really exciting period. But if I look back in my life in think about the time when I felt the most like uneasy and depressed, I'm not a depressed person of the time that I felt like what's going to happen. Post college was really fucking hard and. I graduated twenty one in his office at twenty four. So we're talking three years, but it's at time when a single week feels like last year when you're so ambitious and no one knows you are known as giving you an outlet and it was really hard because at the time by the time they ended my time at Dr meant I was like a big like I was like a big star in the drama, comedy performing world, like it was great that I went there because I would not have been the case. If I'd gone to like an actual artsy school like Yale or you're something I would never have continued onto be writer, but because nobody really wanted to, I wanted to do their this is like, well, past fill in Chris where all ready had already graduated. I didn't overlap with them at all. Like I was felt like such a big shot on that campus and then went to New York. And it was just that thing that I didn't think would happen to me, which was that nobody cared. I was babysitter. I couldn't get that one. I wanted to just go straight to SNL. We'd. Have like a Harvard lampoon. We had like comedies paper guy used to write for, but it didn't have that kind of pre professional edge to it, and it wasn't like an alumni network that can sort of get you in places..
