"Hello everybody. Thank you for turning on this podcast called when I'm hi. This is worth it to of Mindy's interview. Of course, if you haven't listened you got to go back and check out part one and so let's get into it. So you had mentioned a little bit ago talking with other people when you get high and actually this is something that I think I might add to my list of questions going forward because I think that's not necessarily something that that wasn't thought that I had thought about to ask before what is what is your interaction? Like when you're talking to other people do you like it? Do you dislike it? You know, honestly these days I don't like it. I I don't like being super high unless I'm around, you know good friends or in an environment where I know we're going to say, you know, watch a movie or job. Be hanging out at home. Like I don't like I'm not one of those people that likes to get high and I go out in the public necessary just because then I get really self-conscious about the fact that I'm high and that's how you start to spiral to like freak out Zone get that paranoia. Yeah, exactly. Whereas like that never used to bother me so much when I was younger, but like as I've gotten older it's more of like when we're at home cuz nothing I feel like or in a controlled environment kind of thing. Yeah. Can you think of any times at the answer is probably no, but can you think of any times when you were high and you were talking to maybe like a stranger or something and it was actually pretty interesting and you didn't get that paranoia. We can also just delete this question all together. Yeah, I honestly can't not a stranger. There's only one time that I can sort of think of being with somebody. Who knew that I was high and we had just been talking about someone they had gone to school if it was kind of awkward and then saw them at a grocery store. And the person I was with went out of their way to like ask funny questions of this person because we had just been having this conversation and because I actually had taken an edible. So they knew that I was like at the at the moment starting to really get high and then when we walked away I was like you bitch I'm so high and they were like, yeah, I know they were just fucking with you. Yep. Pretty much what is your experience of movies and T shows when you get high you touched on them a little bit before but now let's delve into a g o God. I mean I've had episodes that I've had to stop because I couldn't breathe because I was laughing so hard in a good way. Yeah in particular. I just thought Have one friend who loves Family Guy still and finds the best Family Guy clips, and I think I've actually played this clip for you guys. But there's a clip where they are doing a podcast and they're talking Peter is talking about how many fourth graders could you take out if like relatively logically speaking like you had your wits about you and it's just ridiculous question and most Family Guy Clips are but it was pertaining to a conversation that my friend and I had been having previously in the day. And so then he was like, oh, yeah, so you this and like played it so like the recall of like the call back to the previous joke and then like the funniness of the clip heightened by the fact that we are both really high..

But <Speech_Female> then lyrically as <Speech_Female> well so it <Speech_Male> kind of <SpeakerChange> goes both ways <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> dead. In general, <Speech_Male> it sounds like you're just <Speech_Male> you're just <SpeakerChange> happier <Speech_Female> about the music that you're <Speech_Female> listening. Yeah. <Speech_Female> Yeah in general. <Speech_Male> Yeah, <Speech_Male> and that <SpeakerChange> is not <Speech_Female> a bad thing. <Speech_Female> No, I <Speech_Female> I agree. I <Speech_Female> I enjoy <Speech_Female> life. I don't know. Yeah, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> think you sort of touched on this <Speech_Male> before but what about <Speech_Male> your memory <SpeakerChange> when you get <Speech_Female> high? <Speech_Female> <Silence> Well, <Speech_Female> I do have short <Speech_Female> term memory loss <Speech_Female> it well it's hard cuz <Speech_Female> I came on bringing issues <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> like, you <Speech_Female> know, your your short-term <Speech_Female> memory pot <Speech_Female> issues, but <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> other people <Speech_Female> would probably say otherwise, <Speech_Female> but I know <Speech_Female> that like I <Speech_Female> my memory <Silence> loss <Speech_Female> in general kind <Speech_Female> of is what it is <Speech_Female> and I <Speech_Female> I don't really notice <Speech_Female> when I'm in the moment <Speech_Female> and I'm high <Speech_Female> in the moment. <SpeakerChange> I don't <Speech_Female> notice much of a difference <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> from what I'm sober <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> if that's something that <Speech_Female> I'm kind of <Speech_Female> iffy on memory <Speech_Female> wise.

So how much is a passport like that, then that I believe it's $10. That's great, which is basically like to take on. It's funny cause you're mentioning, you know, coffee shops before that, you know there's kind of the coffee trail in Columbus. Other cities have done things like that. I love that. We're doing that for parks. Now. That's an incredible thing to do during this time where we need to get outside and kind of keep our space from other people. It is and you'll find trails like that.

The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks
"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.
How To Be An Anti-Casteist
"Warner. We started talking about cast with Lauren Freyer. This is Lauren NPR's India correspondent who started thinking about cast and race in part because of an initiative at NPR to track the diversity of sources. This is something we all know do including this podcast. We will note how many women were putting on the air, how many people of Color and other demographic stats I see my company trying to better represent America with the voices we put on the air and I'm looking at my own sourcing and I get too much credit. Every voice I bring to the airwaves from India as a person of color check the box you know that's diversity from my boss' point of view but I'm looking at different types of diversity in India and thinking. CAST. You see it in India when it comes to. Arranged marriages, dating APPS, you see it in real estate I mean there are subtle ways in which landlords choose tenants and signal to tenants. That certain cats are welcome or not welcome. There is no uncontroversial way to talk about cast and even the words we use are fraud. You're going to hear people in this story talk about upper caste and lower caste. We're GONNA try to avoid those hierarchies and say dominant cast at oppressed caste oppression is a strong term, but it definitely applies here. This is oppression that's gone back centuries. It was really amplified by the British. So British colonists came in and gave Brahmins privileges elevated them and exploited this power differential between the BRAHMINS and other castes and when Indians won their independence in nineteen forty seven, they wrote a constitution that acknowledges that oppression and lays out bold measures to try to fix it affirmative action programs to place dollars in government jobs to play dollars, its top universities, and all of that exists in India still today. But despite all of this dalits in India face so much violence disproportionate violence Daulat women are raped more than women of other Castes Dalit men get lynched for falling in love with dominant caste woman lauren knew she wanted to find out peoples cast to make sure she was hearing from variety of voices including people who don't always get access to speak. But. This broad a new problem. How actually do you find out? SOMEONE'S CAST? So Good question. How does one person Oh you're cast light it is not like you have a color which gives away your identity. Same Cornelia says, sometimes, it's easy. You just read someone's cast by their surname sometimes you cannot hide and how about your real surname is it easy to hide your? Name doesn't go my cost us a k. that this wife immediately when I only seven, they will ask me whole willing come from which part of the state you come from. There had to ask a follow up question. If you can't tell by surname, you can ask about someone's neighborhood are also tried to be clever I come from Hyderabad slow from Hyderabad. It's the city of nine million people all casts are there. So that's the people are not satisfied if you do named. So what they do is no, no. No. I'm not talking about with city you come from willow would your parents which relates Came from Sam keeps dodging the real question might played into used to stay in Bombay. Can. Actually before that, my father used to work. So he was daily. You just keep naming, cities. Because that is the facts also, then they will. They will understand that I'm playing around to the. Sam Doesn't want to reveal his cast because most of his Indian coworkers from dominant castes in fact, the overwhelming majority of south, Asians in America from dominant castes. They're often the ones with the resources and access to get here. The other portion usually people ask is already which. Because Brahman Salvage. Aliens. If you say. If you are in. Indian Austin Indian to find overcast he would say. Which stadium by Bertha, by choice and. The tricky thing about this is that a CO worker could be overhearing this entire conversation. is still have no clue what they're really talking about. They will not even the people were very active about this. In always discrimination and all they might have not heard about cast at all. One person who has written about this hidden code it's Sora. John. Day He's a scholar at Harvard and he wrote a book called cast matters I am A. Child of a former landless labourer and someone who is to clean toilet. into the houses of the dominant caste people. So I'm a I'm adult Indian, and when I come to, of course, America I am a person of color. This two identities that help him see things that other people don't see for example, suraj points out this video they came out last fall. Okay. So what we're GonNa Cook today is an Indian recipe. Yes. Because you are yes. Okay. This is a video filmed in the kitchen of the actor and writer Mindy Kaeling on this day when Senator Comma Harris has stopped by to cook. So we Indian actually were both south Indian guests come Larisa Jamaican father and a mother from Chennai in southern India looks like the entire one half of my family. Thank you to I've been telling people related already. It's basically. Almost mother was a Brahmin the priestly cast who according to tradition
Talking Apple's announcements with Phandroid, Nick Gray
"I get the irony of having the editor in chief of Android come on to talk about the apple event. Hey I watched it and let's do this. Okay. I'm not an apple fan boy I can still appreciate good products right? Same same. I used to work in android authority and every time every time I put out a even the slightest thing about an iphone thought that I was a traitor and I was like guys like. I'm allowed to carry more than one phone at any time. So here's the thing. First of all got to give the UPS to help apple. Granted, they have the backing of their partners like Pixar, for example, to make what is a very good looking presentation as far as the quarantine level. Kovin affected trade shows and events and tech shows are concerned I. You know you could. You could expect apple to put put on a good show. It was pretty good granted like with any apple event I kind of not really does off but obviously, like eventually they get into the weeds with their products and you just kind of like okay. Cool. You're you're updating all the IPADS. Dating. All of the Appalachians and whatnot but the whole fact that an iphone twelve was not part of this were you surprised I know people were people were not I was not surprised based off of they set in their last earnings call that the IPHONE would not be coming until. October. So I'll look I mean they they clearly said it wasn't coming and a lot of people seem to have missed that or forgot that Nah and they didn't even they even sent out a reminder once once the event was announced. That no he said the IPHONES. Not Coming till October. and so a lot of people kinda miss that and so that was the speculation of what are they going to announce for a lot of people because some people knew that they weren't announcing the new iphone. So when they sent out the invitation with that weird, it was the apple logo but. Yeah like circling and Tom Whatever I mean. We were speculating that a new apple watch was going to be coming and likely some IPAD information So yeah, I mean that's basically it will. We got the new IPADS and. The. New Apple Watch is because now we have what is the series six is the new one and then the Apple Watch s e. so just like the iphone se we have an apple watch se which is A. I don't WanNa say dumbed down version of the watch because. It's still an incredible piece of Gadgetry but it doesn't have some of the sensors that the main watch has making it useful for somebody who's wanting an apple watch for all of the health and fitness benefits that you can track with the device, but it's probably something more geared towards. A cheaper watch for you know your kids are family members who may not be into fitness tracking you know I would even argue like I agree with you there, but I would even add on top of that. When you put the letters s e on anything apple. I get interested. Like I'll just speak from personal experience because like. If I were to choose if I have no other like knowing that I have other things like my own cameras and my own gaming consoles and stuff like that. If my smartphone was not the center of my universe, then something like a pixel for a which literally I you and and or an iphone se those were the perfect choices for me like I'm actually into. dumbing not dumbing down, you said dumbing down but like slimming my smartphone experience for a better price and they're doing it with smart watches and your Indiapol- ecosystem. I'm actually kind of impressed. Yeah. It is a very, very impressive device and it comes with and Lt version as well which pairs with their new family, what they call it the family sink plan now. Now, you do not need to have it's not a one to one match between a a watch and a smartphone you can connect multiple watches to a single smartphone. So that, you can get on Apple Watch for your children. And also your aging parents so that you can have location tracking and communications with them and fall detection and accident detection. Features built in and pair that with a single device rather than having to have multiple iphones in order to pair that with which makes the Apple Watch. Probably, the first gadget that most parents are going to buy for their children that are not smartphone age ready yet. Yeah. Indeed, and because there's this huge marquette of children friendly watches that are connected that they can make phone calls that they came message their parents or a select small group of people and individuals, and most of those costs. One, hundred, ninety, nine to three, hundred dollars, and all of them have to be paired with a ten dollars a month service plan through your carrier. And just to be clear, the pairing of these devices must be paired with the L. T. E. or this the connected version not just the WIFI version. Yeah, Mindy. So you do have that little bit extra and you do have that monthly subscription that you're gonNA have to pony up for yeah,

Of course, I don't need it. Geyer is it was all fail. I use the money that I made from those? Bars that Reggie Ni- sold to his Paleo Pigeon. and Boy Howdy. We made a fortune on those things. I walked away from that business venture with a thousand dollars. Wait wait hold on hold on. You're telling me you made a thousand dollars in profit from selling bird seed. Paleo. Energy bars, and you decided to spend it on a bunch of a bunch of junk. Well, you know what you always say Guy Roz one birds trashes other birds treasure. What I don't see that. Yeah. You do remember last week when Reggie helped you fish all those old plastic bottles and aluminum cans from Dennis's trash. Hey reg over here. Can you give me a hand? I'm going through Dennis is trash and he's not recycling anything I mean. Fish all these bottles and cans out of this trash bin. You want us to help you. Dentists as. Well as I always say, reg one birds, trash is another bird treasure. The Wow. Do you remember? Oh. Yeah. But but I was talking about trash that could actually be recycled and turned into something new. Because otherwise all that trash gets dumped into a giant trash dump or landfill, and well, that's not good for our environment. Picking Up. down. Guy. Arise talking about rash turning into treasure. Meant recycling deaths. Oh, and Xiaojing Bhai these one hundred and nine hundred boxes. Actually one, hundred, ninety, two boxes downing judging by those one, hundred, ninety, two boxes.

You're calling my Wifi enabled Bluetooth, ready egg beater earings. Well. Yes. Sir I mean, no, I mean. Look at all the plastic and cardboard out here. All these things you've ordered are packed in stuff that's going to go in the trash. Recycling. India, unfortunately, that's not going to solve the problem. Of course, it will. What are you talking about Garros? Haven't? You heard heard what? Well, for the past few decades, a lot of our recycling things like paper and plastic and glass has actually been shipped off to China to get recycled. Except over the past year, China has told the world that it can't take all of our junk anymore. Why not? Well, we humans have generated too much of it and recycling all of that crash has become too difficult for China. So, what does that mean for how we recycle our garbage? Well, it means that in many cities in America and even in other countries they stopped recycling. Just stopped, recycling like Dennis. Mandy. I didn't stop recycling I never started gay Roz, if they're not recycling than what's happening with all that cardboard and plastic, well, a lot of it is being incinerated or burned. Well, that sounds like a pretty good plan to me. Well, unfortunately, it's not because every time you burn this stuff, it creates pollution in our air pollution that makes our air dirty

"Back to books and Boba Club in pocket, which impose Asian and Asian American Authors Marinas Marina. And I'm re-re. You and we are here today our mid month episode toward the month of. July July. Twenty twenty. How're you doing? Good I can't believe that we're ready like halfway into July. Honestly if each like just started no right. Also, I realized that because Marvin and I used to record in studio. I used to see Marvin by twice a month in person, but we haven't. We haven't seen each other in like. Ever since March I don't think we've seen each other. It's been. It's been a while I think the last time we saw each other was when we were recording. What was our? Was? Our February book even. Was! It not south no map assault stars. was after I. Think it was May. who was such a long time, we? Can just look it up right now. I'm looking at right now. Because the Internet exists, I don't WanNa be one of those people who don't know how Gorka. Let's see now that there's like this website where you put in a Google Inc and then you send you send it to someone who asks you a question right like they could totally yes. Let let me Google there for you. Yeah, yeah, I back. When I was in Grad School, I was send to. My classmates would ask me dumb questions. They can just google themselves. sat quite a lot. In College as well our February Book Club pick was the kiss quotient. God so the one recorded with your friend Kaitlyn. That was our last the last time we saw each other. That's wow. Yeah. I feel like These past few months has reinforced idea that. I'm. Pretty Okay with staying at home all the time, which is something I didn't really know about myself or didn't remember about myself. What's your? What's your Myer Briggs by the way? I know it's I. I know it's complete bullshit, but. It does give me a good handle on whether someone is a really extroverted or introverted, and so my with the Myers Briggs is like so if I take the test I usually test at an NF, which is like the Uber. But because of the people I work with I'm often forced to take the set characteristics. So people are often surprised that I am at NFP because I was surprised, too. Because you know like your co host used to be Mindy. The. She does now she now does first of all which is. which is one of the PODCASTS Einar podcast collective and Like she's she's definitely like more extroverted. She's an actress, so yeah I was pretty surprised once I started co hosting with you. I thought it was just going to be to interest talking about books. That totally was not the case. The thing with like introvert extrovert is it's not really. Outgoing. This isn't the it's a trait of extroverts, but it's not. It's more of a symptom than like a core thing, right extroverts just means I. IF I'm out with people are like I can stay up all night. socializing gives me energy instead of expending energy I. Mean I think that's the core difference so? but but what I found is I do gain energy from socializing even online with people so I don't need face to face to be energized and the complete opposite for for. I mean like my Myers Briggs is on twitter, so a lot of people probably know already, but I am I've tested as I N T J. and. socializing is definitely not my strong point. Every time I do go out to Asian American like shindigs. People are always surprised that I'm there. 'cause tonight, because I, really I. Really don't go out. I'm pretty much a unicorn if you see me out in about. So I definitely adapted to the whole self isolation thing. Better than others I mean it helps. There's a lot of media to enjoy at home so I've been seeing a lot Final fantasy like the past. The past three weeks. Grace I recently I talked about this on some of the other pockets that I'm on I binged content this past week, so I washed the old guard, and that I watched all three seasons of dark, I watched the first season of umbrella academy I watched both current seasons of food wars, the the horny food anime, and then I went online and read the rest of the Manga series, so it's been Dan Marvin. I have unhealthy binge habits, which is why I try not to binge as much as possible because. Once I start something I will finish it. It's like it's not even it's not even a of a question. And then I'll spend the next ten hours reading pieces and analysis, so which is why like when you were watching killing eve as it was airing. It definitely curbed that addiction. I know but I've phone behind killing eve so now I have a whole season to binge later, so it's so good Marin about that So good. Yeah, I mean. It's the same with books to write I typically read books in like s few sittings as possible because. A because I have zero self-control, and if you give me the chance to just stay up all night and read something and free or something. I will take that chance

"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?.

"If you look at what's been going on deals or partnerships that are being put in place so we're they're out there. They're working quite well. We're not seeing too significant of an acid dropping. By the way I think if you look at where where the market is today at this exact time. Actually I'm sorry it's up Equities report over two percent. But you look to one year number mindy on the equity markets were flat so relative basis. These firms are doing very well And I I really feel like from what I've see with our Braun pipeline again. I have like for my seat. I could see across all eighteen partnerships in the west side and in the three or four service firms. I mean we've twenty five businesses in our ecosystem. I don't think people realize that you have that much going on In the Goes on a daily basis. Mindy Digress for a minute we cut over a thousand firms between our credit business equity business and are Serbs partnerships. We touch a lot of firms. A lot of operators tons of households directly indirectly. And what I can tell you. From that perspective. From that viewpoint the firms are doing well ones were invested in. We'RE NOT INVESTED IN WEALTH. Management is a great business to be in in. It's one of the things mindy that we would all agree outside of financial services if we take our hats off for a second look in from the outside wealth managers are needed for all different types of families and people. These businesses are going to survive and do well. They're gonNA grow off the back of this because they are an essential service to indeed. I couldn't agree with you more. You had a bird's eye view having been an early stage partner at dynasty financial partners and I guess one of the things I think about is that firms like dynasty who around a decade ago came on the scene to be really a major player in this ecosystem in from where I sit really enabling breakaway advisors to do it into do it well because before dynasty came along there were two major. Things that prevented would be breakaways. Wirehouse advisors or advisors that were employees brokerage firms. Going independent one was turnkey way to get there. The simplicity felt like too much of a heavy lift and to was access to capital these people that were walking away from uninvested for trump and the notion of moving without deal. Money was anathema. So what do you think? Dynasty success in the past decade says about the dialysis were of advisors who have and are continuing to break away from the wirehouse world. So I guess I'm shifting to the industry as a whole through and what do you think dynasties role was in? Fostering that growth. And what do you think it's GonNa look like going forward Oregon bias right. I was there on day. One and I had the good fortune to sitting next to Cheryl Penny in todd and had Swenson in that team watching everything come develop on the back of a Napkin and then on a whiteboard and then in the office that we releasing their in midtown. So the first thing I would tell you. Dynasties a pioneer in the independent space. You have to commend them day. I'm speaking outsider. They've really blazed path for people to open companies and to have confidence confidence. Is The key word here confidence around what it is they can do versus what it is. They're afraid of. I mean let's just cut to it. There was a lot of fear before firms like dynasty in the space around the unknown of what it really meant to be independent and businesses back in December. Two thousand ten and we were like it was yesterday at that point. I feel like there was an opening of transparency less dark corners more knowns which in turn create more confidence so so what that did is it helped catalyze further the movement of people running fully towards something. I think it helped in his help. More and more each year mindy with firms like dynasty with merchant other businesses in this face. It's helped advisors who want to build their own companies realize. This isn't about me running from a bank or a wirehouse. The bank is not bad. This is about me running towards my next endgame my future my legacy right might vision. That's where the businesses going today. And I think if you see where it is it's just getting stronger. Momentum is picking up. We hit little speed bumps or big potholes like this most recent one but all these companies mindy in. I'm not preaching. I'm just stating what I see. They're built to address. These firms are built to last. They're centered around people that run them in their centered around. The families rely on them and none of those things are going anywhere. Do you think if any are the biggest issues that the are a principles or a space will need to solve for now and into the future whether it be as a result of this covid crisis or anything else. I honestly don't know that the issues are changing much from this point forward including covert right. You've got the need to optimize return on time. You've got the need to ensure case in point today more than ever though that you are durable business. Sometimes that's capitol related sometimes. It's not cap related. Sometimes it's outside partner needed. Sometimes it's just internal you've got off the back of that the need for succession. It's unbelievable still to this day. I feel like too many people in this is this is actually a big issue. I feel like too many advisors don't plan for succession until it's too late or almost too late. So that's a big piece of the industry. The just seems to be talked about a lot but not put into practice a lot to me. That's not a problem but it's an issue that has to certainly get more attention than than growth is always one. The People WanNA talk about but unpacking. What growth means for principals for operators for advisors in these organizations? It's you want to grow do you grow. What's the best way to grow and at the end of the day? What's definition for your firm of responsible growth? How do you achieve responsible growth? It's not about how many you can do how many acquisitions you can make clients. You can onboard because the minute you make a mistake and you bring the wrong component into your home. Meaning your firm. It's very hard to take three more steps back to go back to where you were before you got. I think what I'm really trying to say India's as these firms grow really all the firms merch included we. Have we think everyday about what can be done to us? Way Ahead of what can be done for us in. Sometimes you defined by more what you don't do and who you don't work with clients you don't take on relatives. The ones that you do. And so being contrarian in that ways I think really important as these principles navigate business ownership on their own..

"A channel for pershing for more than a decade and done extraordinary things in his tenure there. How lucky for you. I guess is the best way to put it to get to learn from the master all these years. What would you say are the most impactful lessons he taught you rate? Mindy will I just echo that? I've been so fortunate to work Slow closely with mark Really over the last decade and he's been such a great mentor to me and friend and I've learned so many lessons for mark through the years I've got to ride sidecar with him on. So many meetings know internal meetings meetings with prospects meetings with teams that were contemplating new business model. And I've even walked through countless airports or conferences with mark in have people stock him along the way in. This is the way the conversation would go. You might not remember me. You consulted with US ten years ago and we completely changed our business model and it's changed my life so he really had an impact on the industry and and he'll continue to. I think a couple of the teachings that he's taught me are around leadership absolutely running the team Around business management. You know. Mark was a pioneer of really bringing business management to the RA marketplace around people management marks. Great people manager and a great delegator and he really depended upon his team and also business consulting and everything that we've come to know about you know kind of marks expertise but I'd say the number one thing I would take away is that you need to put people first and from day one. We were always partners. Mark Never introduced anybody on his team that that they worked for him. It was always. This is my colleague or my colleague Christina in that really allowed us to run the day to day he delegated very well and You know he was a big personality and we needed that big personality in credibility as we built out our custody business to this to this point but putting people I was the biggest lesson And he always said that The the most important employees is more important than the most important client in. That's not to diminish clients and this is the same for advisory businesses but in order to have an enduring business. You've gotTa Take Care of the people I in your business that they can then take care of the clients and that was a really important lesson that I'll never forget. Yeah and a good one but let me unpack some of the things I know. He's a spouse over the years so one of the first lessons he taught me was that alone is the cheapest form of financing and affirmed shouldn't sell equity unless there were good reasons to do so and I think that added time when there are so many investors in the space and every day principles of a firms are getting calls from would be investors asking them to sell a portion of equity whether it means they're they're sort of mid cycle of their business or they're just breaking away and they're considering do I go it alone or do I take on. An investor sell a portion of equity as a way of taking some chips off the table upfront. So what do you think about that? What's your stance on that? The first thing I would say I agree with mark and I think what he would say which I agree with two is every situation is different. There's definitely pros and cons of both debt and equity financing and again going back to what I already stated you know. Mark has been masterful at kind of bringing these business management concepts to this entrepreneurial or a very in that's embedded in in our firm now from the way that we think about things for our relationship management business consulting teams so yeah equity tends to be more expensive but there so many new sources of capital coming into the marketplace. This business is so revered right now. And that's why we're seeing all this outside capital come in with equity you give up control to shareholders in you give up profits to shareholders and in that's in perpetuity of time and. That's something that mark always talked about night and I definitely agree with when you do want equity stakeholders in your business lesson that I learned. Is You equity? Stake holders always have to buy in. You shouldn't use equity to just give away. To in recruiting situations. The equity stake holders have to have skin in the game. It's a great tool for succession. So mark is also the kind of the godfather of succession in this business. And that was an important lesson that I learned to that equity as part of an emerging partners ability to buy over time creates that succession plan and gives them skin in the game of the business. And if you are going to bring in outside capital they've gotta bring something to the table whether it's intellectual capital and network that you can't get to ability to drive growth etc us you've got to be really careful about that on the other side assay on the other.

"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..

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.
