"It all leads back to apius. The evolution. They think they call it the reptilian brain. I prefer atheism. I prefer atheism too. I'm going to go with apizza now. The monkey brain, the monkey mind. Monkey mind. If we evolved from if we evolved from something that didn't really care if we were involved in turtles, I'm going to make some turtle specialist very mad now, but I'm just assuming the turtles, they don't really care about territory and tribes. If we have all from them, we'd have shells, but we'd also wouldn't care as much. But Donnie one, you know what? You being able to see that and you being 13, it gives me hope that that question I want answered is that it's possible. It might get answered and that a global response to territorial terrorism might be found with your generation. Yeah, I don't think you need to bust in my room with your turkey and salad. You had that figurative. Thank you, Don. We all just needed to talk to you about it. And I figured out what my question was. Talk about my very easy to talk to. I've been told. You really are. I think I told you. I made you. Yes. Good for you. You know, thank you for the reminder. I'm not taking credit for you completely. You are you, truly. Another book idea. You are letter R you exclamation point. Yeah, we need like really cool colors, a nice gray scale photo, some looking off in the distance. We have this book. By the way, that is what I didn't want for my memoir. The whole idea of a black and white gray scale picture of me sort of like, you know, hand under your chin, kind of staring off out of the ocean. Yeah, I'll just like, just like looking off like this. Yeah, just looking like pensive. What would be your last meal? Well, it's about that it would be with people. So it would be weird. You adds onto Katie Percy Jess lily, mom, dad, my stepmother, my two brothers and their families. And it would be us on a beach, but with it would be catered by this restaurant on the Amalfi Coast called Los golo, which is the best food I've ever eaten. The most transporting food I've ever eaten in my life. And there would be a way of making sure everything was like hot and the perfect temperature and perfectly served, but we would all be on the beach together and then at the end of eating. I know it sounds nuts, but there's this courgette zucchini in American pasta that is unlike anything I've ever eaten in my life. And these fresh anchovies, which are not like the anchovies that you think of in a can, they are white, they have just come out of the ocean with the warm tomatoes that come from the garden in the back of the restaurant. So these warm vine ripened by the sun, tomatoes, with these fresh white anchovies that have been grilled to perfection with olive oil and lemon on them and they're presented on a plate in like a star. You lose your mind. You lose your mind, which if it's my last meal, I don't care about my mind anymore. I just want to be eating that food with all of you. And then at the end of that, right when we've just finished everything delicious, I want to hear the tinkling of an ice cream van. So I get that feeling that you get when you hear the tinkling of the ice cream van. Brings you back to your childhood. Yeah, and immediately you get that butterflies in your stomach. It still happens to me when I hear an ice cream van now. And then I want us all to race up the beach and go and get a mister whippy with two flakes in it. Two flakes, not three not one, two. Two. For American listeners and mister whippy is a soft serve ice cream that comes out in a coil into a cone and a flake is this chocolate bar that you get in England that's arguably the most delicious chocolate bar to meares and that's stuck in the top of the ice cream. Crumbly. It's really nice. Oh my God, that is my perfect last meal. It's perfect. And then I want to take off into whatever's next. As if I had like power jets in my feet, so I would literally just wave goodbye to everybody and then just shoot straight down. Oh yeah. Fireworks, fireworks, with your ice cream. And like a really good firework display. And I really good music. And that would be as I ascended because they would be some kind of ascent. In your power rocket boots with your two flag, not one not three mister whip from an ice cream van after you've eaten this delicious zucchini. And then there would be a giant rainbow over the beach and glitter. That's really great. Men out. Such a great answer. I think incorporating people that you love and stuff that's really interesting. And then auntie case you would be like, okay, let's pack up the leftovers. Don't waste anything. How quickly you need to go? My way should we have to go. You can use getting dark and leave. It's getting dark. If the meal has all your friends and family and everyone, what would you want to talk about? Love, I just love stories. I love it when people tell stories, but my dad used to tell the best stories. Mom used to tell the best stories. I just, and I loved hearing the same stories like, mom and dad used to tell the story. And they would tell it about each other when the other one wasn't present and they'd tell it when they were together. It used to crack me up that they both would tell the story, which was when mom and dad went to Morocco and they weren't on this amazing, crazy adventure. And they were in this place and they were serving lamb and my dad goes the lamb was green and mom goes, the lamb had a green sauce. And my dad would be like, the lamb was green because it was bad. And my mom was like, the lamb had a green sauce because everyone knows that you eat mint sauce with lamb and that mint is very, very common in Morocco, so dad says I told her not to eat it and mom's like, he told me not to eat it and I said you're being ridiculous. And dad said she wouldn't listen. And then mom eats the lamb and obviously nearly dies of food poisoning. And my dad manages to be both completely empathetic and take care of her whilst also massively doing the I told you so dance as she's throwing up an almost dying from food poisoning. So that's what I would like everyone to be talking about is like telling the funniest stories and laughing really hard. Just like when we all start laughing in Cornwall. Yeah, that's my favorite thing. In your life, can you tell me something that has grown out of a personal disaster? Yes. Looking back, I know that every time I thought the world was ending when, you know, a relationship didn't work out when I was suddenly broke and didn't know where the next job was coming from. When I look and I see invariably things grew out of all of those things. I have so many disasters because I think people do, but invariably, every choice that you're forced to make when something doesn't work out. Leads you to what your life is and how can you not celebrate that. It's a heavy one, but it's true. I got it. When mom died, I was like, it is not possible to recover from this. So I kept thinking, well, this is terrible. Nothing good can grow out of this. And it's true for a long time. Nothing did. And then, so strangely, like the little shoots you see on a tree that looks dead in winter. You know, the trees near our house in London that just looked like there is no way they are coming back. And then one day, in March, you see a little tiny green shoot coming out of a branch. And I had that this year because I was still feeling so much grief. And when I saw that little green shoot on the Magnolia trees, I felt this thing inside, I felt this recognition that it was growing anew. And then it reminded me of mom because she loved the spring. She died in the spring. She loved the spring. She loved the notion of renewal. She loved being able to say, it is shit right now, excuse my French, and it is going to get better. She loved that. So there is something in March of this year. When I saw those shoots growing out of the trees, I knew it was going to be okay. And that didn't mean that I wasn't going to have days where I would miss her so much, but it reminded me that it is true at all things evolve, even grief, even loss, and sometimes they can evolve in the absence of the thing that you think has to happen to make you feel better. And in that case, it was, she has to be alive again in order for me to feel better. And the problem of the thing is, is that she isn't going to be alive again. And she would be the first person to scoff with laughter at me thinking that could ever happen. But she's definitely what gave me the ability to notice the green shoots on the Magnolia tree and actually connect that to the evolution of.

"What person place or experience most altered your life? Well, you did. Really, it's you, but like it's going to become repetitive if I just keep saying that you, but you must know that and people will know that you are the person who changed my whole life. But when I was much younger, a person who really did have this huge impact was this girl who is one of the stories in my book. You're writing a book mom? Did I tell you I have a book coming out? It's out right now. It's called managing expectations. Well, mom. So in this book, there's a story about how, when I left college, when I left drama school, you know, absolutely intent on becoming an actor. I was the only kid in my class to graduate without getting representation. You know, an agent or a manager. Nobody was interested. All my friends got them. I didn't. And I was absolutely stuck. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. My whole life, since I was 5 or 6 years old, had just been gunning for this notion of becoming an actor, and I'd also been told that the only way that you could get work as an actress if you had representation. So there was 19 absolutely stuffed and mom was so hilarious. She was like, right, well, I suppose you'd better just get a job as a waitress. She had no sympathy at all. She was just like, go and find a way to pay your rent. We need money, now, please. Yeah, exactly. Get on with it. So I was like, okay, and I had to work. I didn't have any money, so I was singing in jazz clubs. I was like doing whatever I could. I hated waitressing so. I was a terrible waiter. I was always questioning people's wine choices. You know, like my dad, sadly, it taught me about wine. And I would mutter under my breath. Oh God, don't order the peanut cliche with a beef. That is just what I was thinking, oh my God. I was really just sinking. I pictured you saying, dude. Terrible. Though I'd get fired off and so then I just started singing in jazz clubs and dinner jazz, no one was listening. And through this summer, it was this explosion of this music called acid house. And I would go to these parties, these raves out in the middle of the countryside in like warehouses and barns and wherever. And these huge parties and it was amazing and you just dance all night till it got light and then a bit further. And then you go home. And during that time because I wasn't really as you know. I just I don't drink a lot and I didn't really do all the drugs that the kids were doing at that time. So I was pretty sober and I would be driving home and there was this one girl who I'd always seem to be, you know, I connect with her because she was also sober. And we'd like to have these great conversations. And like we partied all through the summer and had this great time and she was just really cool, but we never really hung out in between. We just see each other at these parties. And towards the end of the summer, I was just dreading September. Reality was bench pressing in the parking lot waiting for August 31st to switch over to September 1st and then I was just going to get my ass kicked. And we must have been driving home early one morning, and she was like, you know, what do you do? And I was like, oh, well, you know what I'm supposed to be an actress. And she was like, what do you mean, space to be? I was like, wow, I left school, I don't have any work. I'm singing. I'm trying to do that. I don't know what I'm doing. And she was like, oh, I work for a casting director. And I was like, do you? And she was like, yeah, you should come and meet her. And that was like on the Saturday night, Sunday morning. And on the Monday, I went and met this casting director who was one of the nicest people and one of the biggest casting directors in the UK and in the world. And I don't know, I don't know what she saw in me. I had nothing to recommend me, except a smart mouth and making some jokes. And she called up an agent who had seen me in a play at drama school and had been like, she's rubbish. And she just convinced her to give me a trial, just to give me a try. Just try me out for a few weeks and see if I could do something. That girl that I used to go raving with. She really did change my life. I feel like I've heard some of it before. I think that's really cool. How life just kind of life on the way. It does, actually. The next question, what question would you most like answered? I know this is the difficult one for you. You told me, it's going to be a bit hard. I listen, I ran into Henry's bedroom night before we were setting up for this and I was like, babe, I don't know what to say to this question. Like, I don't know what. I've been asking it, and I ask it because I don't really know what should I say and Henry just sat there watching me eat turkey and lettuce going, I don't know. I said, how long does the battery last? Because that would be pretty cool. Oh, I mean, I do want to know why does my electric car tell me that I have 260 miles. And then I drive 16 miles and it says that I've used up 50. It's such a lie, like that, that bugs the crap out of me. I put I know what, that's just to do with commerce and metrics and the way stuff looks. The question I would most like answered is I want to know how to stop this savagery that man shows to people. And I say man because it is always men. Starting wars and creating this profound unrest. I want to know rather than will it ever end. I want to know how to stop it. As a society, how we could globally unite to stop this, that there would be like, what's the protocol when you start to see the troops amassing on a border? What do you do? How do we all come together really quickly to stop that from happening? I would like to know that. That's definitely that's sort of expanding on the end world hunger kind of thing. Do you mean like solving like these huge issues that we have as people? Yeah, like these massive issues. I think that's like taking a step further with wanting to know how. But I think you're definitely right. If it's a tier list of questions that need to be answered, it's pretty high up there. What's kind of like a hair question, right? It's the same thing about saying that we're human or spiritual, because obviously I want to know, am I going to see mom again? Am I going to see her again? If someone could just tell me that, I wouldn't worry so much. I wish I could know that. But that's also this sort of spiritual question, then there are these human questions about being here and now like could we actually affect change here if we knew the answer to some of these huge questions could we make this experience less awful for so many people? I think well, because you sort of shown the two roads to sort of question for yourself and the question for humanity. I'm referencing what's happening in the Ukraine right now and it feels it's like a dead end because we don't know how to or what's going to happen. I mean, I think that's one of the issues with some of the big questions. You ask them, there's no real answer. It's it leads to a dead end, but I think exploring that. I think that's really that's important. Knowing what life means, knowing how to make peace. I think what it means dead end, I think that sort of means very important and too important to have a short answer. It would take textbooks of context books to solve peace, world hunger, because there's just so many different sides to it. It's really difficult to sort of create one single piece of perfectness. But let me ask you this. Why do you think Addison would say it's because of tribalism, but we are human beings before we are tribes. Why as human beings can we not unite around that humanity? Why is it always about the tribalism and the kind of furthering what Putin is doing is like the furthering of Putin's agenda, like he's also a person, like how does that get this is so terrible you poor thing? I'm so sorry. I'm pushing this on you. Oh, no, no, it's completely fine. I thought about this. But I wonder why the humanity doesn't come first. Like, why isn't there some a chip in our brain a part of our brain that kicks in when we start acting only in our own self interest? How come there isn't this thing that completely reminds us that we are part of something so much bigger and where people were not just a person. I so badly, I don't want to say tribalism, but I think since we are descendants of the ape, I feel like apes, they're very tribalistic. They like territory there. I mean, as much I know is of apes. I think since our brains evolved from them and we've evolved from wanting to be together with our tribe, the wanting to keep out the others. I think there's just that small bit from being age. I think that's left in our brain of just that we don't want our tribe to be taken away from us. But it all leads back to, I don't know what the word I am going to say atheism because that sounds correct..

"What relationship real or fictionalized defines love for you? Well, if you weren't interviewing me, I would say you, like, becoming a mother, and maybe it's pertinent because it's Mother's Day, but there are really two things it's a two prong. It really did. My ideas about love and what that was. When you were born, it wasn't even like it was suddenly like this great. Aha moment. It is like this deep inner knowing that it is completely okay that everything you thought before about love was sort of pales in comparison from this actual definition of it. It's this all encompassing unconditional feeling of peace and that everything is right. And that's the only way that I can describe it. And the tangent of that is like the love that I have for Addison, which is that feeling of things just being right. And then the other, I guess this is three pronged not two prongs, units, more of a fork, is with surfing. How I feel about surfing and when I'm surfing, it dovetails into how I felt when you were born and how it was to fall in love with Addison, which is, again, this feeling of its dynamic. It requires you being completely present. There is huge respect in it and strength. You can never underestimate it. And in a way, if you humble yourself to it, you will reap the rewards, but it requires a lack of ego and insistence on things being done your way. There's something about surrender in love, and like having a baby is the ultimate surrender like your body, like when you first start having contractions, which are the pains that you have to have a baby. You're just like, no, no, no, no, no, no, this can't happen. It's gonna happen. I can't do this. I can't do this. You have no choice. You just have to keep going. And surrender to it. In the same way that I ultimately surrendered to Addison's kindness. I'd never really been with someone who kindness was their fundament and respect was their fundament. So those three things for me, you, Addy and surfing, and my pyramid of love. Triangles, the strongest shape. Is that right? Yeah, I was probably put that up. I know, because you're in school paying attention to geometry. Of course, paying attention, yeah. Well, back on topic often school. I think that's a really interesting definition of love, because I know there's a lot of people that say love is just about being with people, and it's connecting, but not connecting on a deeper level. I think what you're really saying is you're not just there with them and you're not being with them, you're not helping them with the groceries, but you're with their personality or you're really there with them instead of just being there to cook them food, you're sort of you're there for the love and you're there for the surrenders here. There's the good times the bad times, not just the times where you want to be there. That's so funny because what I hear in that is it speaks to the duality of being a human being. You have this physical experience, which is doing the groceries, taking care of the thing, the this that that all of which are expressions of love, a 100%, like when you make me breakfast in bed when you make my coffee and eggs and toast, that is an expression of love. And then there's the other the spiritual side of being a human being, which is slightly more difficult to articulate, but just that deep feeling of peace and safety with someone. Like strangely that's how I felt like during COVID when it was just you me and ads together in this really scary time seeing really scary things happen and terrible things happening to so many people, but that feeling of us together was the safe unit. But it's funny, isn't it? There's like, there's the human, the physical experience, and then there's this more spiritual is the only way etheric experience that maybe runs parallel with it. Yeah, so it's a two prompt for. So it is a two pronged. I'd say I'd say the third prong, it's there. It's just maybe on the other side. So it's like stabbing instead of pokey. Instead of pokey, it stabby instead of folks. It's a double sided two pronged in one pronged fork. My definition of love is three pronged, but you're saying like existential love is too pronged, human and spiritual. Yeah, great. I think you should write a book babes. Wow, the two pronged fork of love. Yeah, I'd buy that book. I'd buy that. I think we should illustrate that cover later. The two pronged fork of love. Following up with your whole way you've been saying, do you think you would have answered this question differently, 20 years ago, like before you had me before you've gone through all the stuff, et cetera? Yes, Christ. Yes. I would have, I would have. I would have thought that this idea of romantic love, this idea of a family unit looking the way that I thought it was supposed to, even though I don't even come from that, which is, you know, two parents who were married, who then have children. Like my parents weren't married, they had kids. They had kids with other people. I had you without having a partner who was sort of, you know, doing the shared duties with, like, 20 years ago, I would have said that it was some romantic, ridiculous idea that had been pushed on me by how I'd processed society, which was looking around going, oh, if somebody chooses you and marries you, that means that you are loved, as opposed to being in life, discovering that love for yourself and seeing what kinds of expressions of that love show up, IE a beautiful baby that comes miraculously out of a connection with a person, you know, there's more magic now. Wow. It's really beautiful. How perspectives can change and the 20 years? Do you ever do that? Do you have a write down your thoughts now, like a time capsule thinking, oh, I'm going to look back, I'm just going to see. I'm going to leave a breadcrumb trail for myself, and then I'll come back to this in 20 years and see what I think about it. I think I've done that before. I think I've read it for school. Yeah. It sounds a bit squirrelly, doesn't it? Sorry. I'm sorry. I don't mean to down on your cool style, but it does feel sort of like, you know, write down, think about later. But I think your explanation of, you know, 20 years ago, love sort of felt like something pushed instead of something that you felt. That's really beautiful. That feels like a little garden of love, sprouting up, changing and evolving. Oh, you know what? Also, like, that is actually a really clear indication that evolution is possible in my bumbling old brain. But actually, so maybe going back to that question before of like, will this the stuff I don't like about myself or that evolve? It's like, well, your idea about love evolved, and why can't that happen to other things? That's true. So then maybe maybe it'll be when I'm 80. I won't have a ball of catastrophe. Two pronged fork is turned into a.

"Me on in such a special time. Okay, over to you. Cool. Let's get into the questions. The first question, as you know, is one and where were you happiest? Right, well. My happiest moments, they are always on the beach. With everyone, and by that I mean, our family and friends and the surf involved and like a long day at the beach and then us staying and having a barbecue on the beach as it's dusk and how mom would always have her cocktail shaker Volker and tonics. Like handy. Yeah, I remember that. I remember that. I loved did you remember she used to have those shed these amazing red frame glasses and she'd have her red lipstick and she'd be in some cool puffer jacket because it was England and it would be cold and she'd be sitting in her chair. I think I've got so many pictures of her just roaring with laughter whilst reading the newspaper while pouring herself a vocal and tonic, like in the middle of nowhere in Cornwall. Those were good memories. Why do you think it's on the beach? Do you know this reading something the other day about how, as you get older, you return to the memories that you had as a child. So basically I think before everything, you know, sorry for the spoiler alert, but everything gets messed up as you go. Come on, this is like, you know what I mean? I read this thing saying that you return to these places. You recreate them in your adult life. The places that you feel happy is that the places that you were actually happy is when you were a child. And like pre everything, pre my parents separation, pre, everything in our lives, me and my sister's life-changing. I just remember the beach only good things happen at the beach. The ice cream van, learning to swim full attention from my parents because otherwise, you know, you might run off and get lost or drown. So they had to pay attention to you. My sister burying me, you've seen those pictures right of Kate used to bury me up to was just my head sharing. And then she would literally leave. In a hall, not able to get out. I mean, I think that also for me, that would be a perfect memory. I mean, sitting in a nice enclosed pit of sand by myself, tide coming in. Oh, the thrill. The thrill, yes. You do love it. You did make me do that the other day. Yeah, but that was a joke. I mean, I don't see the joke with hunky cade. I gave you boobs and a fishtail. I seem to remember, which is really infantile on my part, and I apologize, but it was funny. Yes, ma'am. I now have that video. So are you aware? I know you're supposed to be asking me the questions, but are you aware of times that you're happy? Do you clock it when you're going, God, this is a really good time. Like, do you have an awareness of them happening? I think I have a vague awareness. I think you don't know it's better until the moment's over, which I think is what the beach is so good because, you know, in the moment, you're splashing around, then you leave, and it's sort of like you look back on that. And you're like, wow, that was really good. And so I think I don't notice, but then what I've left, I notice. That's a really good point. In fact, that is so interesting because I was thinking that right before we did this, I was, as you know, I went out for a surf. That path from our house to the beach that I have walked a thousand thousand times. I still have that feeling. When I come around the corner and I'm walking down the path towards the ocean and the sage, the smell of hot warm sage is blowing and it's sunny and it's beautiful and I can sort of hear tinkly voices from the beach. It's like it triggers all those other memories of the beach, like all those other memories of happiness are triggered every time I return to this beach. But it's almost like it's on a loop in some deep place in my heart, and maybe that's it that we should keep triggering our happy place. We should keep finding ways of triggering our happy place. Like whatever that is in our life. Whether it's on the beach in the city wherever it is, you're just trying to go back to them and have it happen again. Yeah, or have a new experience in that place that you categorically know is a place that you have been happy. I don't know if that always worked. I think I'll definitely make sense. Good, I'm glad I'm not sounding drunk. That's good. What quality do you like least about yourself? I mean, I know that you're probably having an opinion about this. But the thing that drives me maddest about myself is so I'm explaining this to you even though you watch it happen. You know, often. When something difficult happens, I don't let it just be about that difficult thing that's happening. It's like that thing becomes a magnetic ball that attracts all of the other difficult things that are either going on currently or have gone on in the past or might happen in the future and they all attach to this magnetic ball that was just one small problem and suddenly it's this overwhelming ball of catastrophe. And it drives me insane and I'm completely aware that I do it and Addison is really good at stopping me now and going hold on hold on hold on. This was about the waste disposal not working for the 6 day in a row not about your current unemployment. I know what you mean. I've seen it happen before when I'm sitting like some raisin bran in the kitchen. And I think something minor comes in and it becomes a bigger thing. I don't think it's your fault. I think it's just sort of a way that your brain is programmed if you know what I mean. I don't think it's really changeable, but I don't think it's the worst thing. I still love you. I love it. Do you really think it's not programmable? Because like if you have awareness about something, do you not think that awareness is like the first step to changing it? Yeah, I mean, when I say program, I don't mean like you can ever change it. I'm just saying that's sort of like born into you. Yeah. Sort of like how I used to have blond hair. Now I don't have blond hair. It can change. But it takes time. You have to put work into it. I didn't put work into my hair. But you know what I mean? About an allergy. But it's a great analogy, darling. I liked it. The thing is I then used that against myself and it becomes part of my ball of catastrophe going. Why are you not changing quick enough? Why are you aware of this thing and why on earth you see how distressed you become and how distressing that is for the people around you? So why do you keep doing it? I don't quite understand what needs to happen in order to evolve. I would like to have a drink like Alice in Wonderland to speed up the evolution of a certain aspects of my psyche. I get what you mean. I guess also that's part of being human. We have issues that we bring. And then we all deal with issues in different ways. You bring other things in. Some people, they'll try to ignore it. It's always different for people. But I think if you're really trying to change it, which I don't think you need to, because I mean, you're perfect in every way. Oh, stop it. I think if you're really trying to change it, you have to really believe that you can. Because if you're constantly, I know that everyone says this, but if you're constantly being angry and you're attaching things and you're doing because you don't want, you have to really focus on what's happening and you have to try to move away from it. It's true. It's like you come back to the present moment and go all of that other stuff isn't happening. It's just this one thing. I don't know, it seems incredibly difficult at the time because, you know, you're thinking, oh no, the pies burning. I'm unemployed. You know, there's a bunch of stuff happening. I'm not saying that to be bad. That's literally how it goes. We both know that is exactly how it goes. The apple pie is burned and I can't get a chop. I don't mean it to be mean, I'm just repeating what you said before. I'm sorry. It's so not mean. It's so exactly true. I'm here for it. I think you're seeing those things. And we really have to do is think, okay, the apple pies burned, but it's fun. We still have some lasagna, you know? I'm going to find a job and you just have to think that it's not forever, and you can move away from that and you can get away from that place and you can find positives. It's difficult because in the moment you feel like you're useless and it's all bad and nothing else is going to happen, that's good. But over time, you have to know this all just, it's going to fit together like a little puzzle and just become good. It's absolutely true dying. I think that is sage advice. It's really just taking a breath and going in this moment, just this thing is happening. And it's just like taking a running jump off a cliff, and I think we do that as people or I know I do it. And I really hope that this conversation is a sea change in the way in which I barely up to the trickier things in life sometimes. So, you know, thanks for the empathy babes. I think it's part of being something that we have to be empathetic..

"Can you imagine he loves a hot pocket? You know what? The hot pockets are great. They are delicious and probably nutritious. You know, I eat them a lot. I had one this morning. Think about that. So he eats Henry traditionally, has never been a breakfast person, ever. Oh, never. I can have a hot pocket in the morning. It takes two minutes. If I want to make cereal I have to get the box, I have to get the milk, I'll pull. Yeah, but it's also this is like terrible parenting. I get so. Let me talk about my hot pocket addiction now, okay? Sorry, carry on, carry out. So it's two minutes to cook a hot pocket. And you eat it, boom. I'm not hungry anymore. And it's tasty. But I also offer to make you like delicious food like our make you pasta, cacio Pepe. I'll make that beer with some carrot batons and hummus. And you're like, whatever, I'm having a hot pocket. You see, do you want to go through all that effort? Or do you want me to put a hot pocket? Sorry, we're off topic. We're off topic. When I was so off topic, quick, I've come back to the topic back. Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests, questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other players true nature. It's just the scientific method really in masking different people the same set of questions. You can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline. And it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalised defines love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. Hi, I'm Henry driver sitting in today for my mom, Minnie. On this special episode of Mother's Day edition for many questions. My guest today is perhaps unsurprisingly, many driver. Hi, mom. How's it going? It's going well. Congratulations on your new book. Thank you darling. You're in it. I'm in it. Wow. That's pretty cool. I'm in a book. You're hosting my podcast and you're in a book. I'm practically taking over your career, mom. By me, actually, I could use some youthful energy. I think we look close enough, we could probably switch out for some movies or something. I wonder if anyone would actually notice you're almost as tall as me now, like if you just rocked up on set one day and were like, I mean, that would be very cool. I think we sound similar as well. So we would just be a perfect match. Well, I like doing my impression of you, but I know you don't like it when I do it. Every night I like doing my freshman year, basically. But you're like, you're two more. I love it when you do an English accent. I'm going to have a ball. You cherries and tomatoes, you darling no. No, it's not tomatoes. It's tomatoes. Tomatoes, we have a bath with some tomatoes and a sofa. Okay, that's ridiculous. I'm really grateful that you're doing this darling. It's this is our Mother's Day edition. And you know, Mother's Day and my book was just published yesterday like it's quite auspicious, and which is what makes me grateful that you're doing this. So thank you. Thank you, mom for having me on.

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason, it seems like these days everybody just wants to fight for the sake of fighting. Everybody wants to be outraged for the desire to be outraged. It's been announced that the cartoon world is starting to change. At least part of the cartoon world. Just announced Minnie mouse is no longer going to be wearing her short skirt. She's moving it to pants. And of course, you've heard all the controversy about the M and M's characters, where the female M and M's characters, the Brown and the green M and M are changing shoes. Yes, the green M and M who had boots now has tennis shoes, and the Brown M and M who had real high heels now has moderate, sensible heels, and of course the world is going crazy. The Internet's blowing up because too much political correctness, too much insanity, it's cartoons. Do we really care that much? I never paid attention to what Minnie mouse was wearing. I guess she's always one of the same clothing, I guess. But I'm sure she has clothing changes somewhere along the line, doesn't she? We have bigger issues in the world to deal with than what happens to a cartoon character or an advertising character if you will. Something's got to change here. And it's not the pants and sensible shoes.

"minnie" Discussed on Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver

"What if you asked everyone you knew the same 7 questions? How do you think the answers would change between people of different backgrounds, professions, even stages of life? Do some questions send us all down completely different roads. Are there some answers that ring true for all of us? I'm mini driver, and this was the idea I set out to explore in the first season of my podcast, many questions. In season one, I asked every guest the same set of 7 questions. Questions about the inflection points in their life? What they're curious about, the qualities they like least about themselves, and what relationships have defined love for them. From music legend Dave Grohl, the first time I saw a band play on the stage. I was in this dark bar that smelled like bleach and beer and they started playing. And like my chest was against the stage. And so I was like, this is what I'm doing for the rest of my life. To television host, hoda kotb. You know, you always want an at a girl from your dad. But instead, when you don't have that, you're like, I guess there's more this mountain decline. If I hadn't gotten sick, I wouldn't have the guts, like I wouldn't have had the courage. I would have never asked that. When did I usually do, but instead, it was urgent. To Amazonian tree frog enthusiast and celebrated actor comedian and writer, Stephen Fry. Well, I think first love is fictional love to some extent. It's so overwhelming. It's expectations are so high that it's a vertical moment of happiness, one little drop of bliss. And now I'm excited to announce the second season of many questions. This year, we bring a whole new group of guests to answer the same 7 questions, including vocalist and founding member of The Rock band blondie. Debbie Harry. Can you tell me about something that has grown out of a personal disaster? I think one day I did have a revelation. It was that CBG business as a matter of fact. I went on stage. I walked out and I realized I was waiting for the audience to give it to me. It would be. Then I realized that I had to make them. I have to demand that. And that was a real revelation. Comedian and writer of the HBO show starstruck rose Matthew, what would be your last meal? Thank you so much for asking. If you haven't existed and you die and you look back on the highlights really the last day and you see that you had like a print sandwich or something. You're like, no, why did I eat that? I didn't stand up to a few years ago. Being on a plane and really specifically designing what film that you're watching because somebody's scared of flying. I don't want that plane to go down and I die. My mom's like, what was the last thing she was watching? And I would just be like, Despicable Me too. It's like you don't want to want that to be the final one. Pioneer of Drummond base, artist and creative juggernaut, Goldie. If you can tell me where and when were you happiest? I woke up to the mountain, I high club, and this is like a ten K light going up and down, but just being in that environment and seeing life and death in front of you. Right in front of you is a really beautiful reminder of how insignificant we are and how being at the happiest moments there. And I got there and scream and crying and laughing and I find that being the happiest. And many more. Each episode is a new entry in the archive. A new opportunity to examine how as people were both similar and individual..

Interview With Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Ronan Farrow

"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions

What's the deal with Framing Britney Spears on HBO?

"Framing britney. This documentary had everyone above this weekend. I watched it last night. Kind of inbetween. Basically i'll be honest. I started watching it after the halftime show During the superbowl. 'cause i didn't really care at us home with my family and i wasn't like at a party or betting or anything but i'll get super bowl too but first of all Of course we've all heard about free brittany. Which has been this movement that her fans kinda started. There's been you know articles podcast and everybody talking about it. Of course. I follow her along with twenty seven other million people on instagram. And it's been weird. It's been weird watching her this last year. You gotta watch it. It's on lure fx. But it's just really they kind of just go through her whole career with in two hours which could have been. You know an eight part series. I think and we all remember when she came up. It was the mickey mouse club. And then all of a sudden she was really sexy. I remember when Shawn and marlon wayans were hosting the mtv awards and she came out and she did her sexy that goes with the snake and their joke which they came off came up with on the spot which is a great story is from minnie mouse club to the strip club and it was one of the funniest lines ever but now in watching that you're like wow you know this. This girl was suffering We made her suffer because we did jokes like this. We are obsessed with her sexuality. Diane sawyer was you look back at that interview which they featured and really putting her in the hot seat you know. Jay leno Doing jokes about her. We did jokes better. When chelsea lately started we. It was a great time for late night. Television also. Because right around that time the writers guild strike happened and we weren't writers guild so we were the only Late night show that got to stay on air. Every day was britney spears story. And it i. It just seemed like she was going. You know kinda fun crazy like she disliked to gas stations a lot and walk around barefoot and the paparazzi. Were there at the time. Because at that time there was no instagram. And that is how paparazzi and magazines made money is to get the shots of brittany. Brittany was the highest paid celebrity photos and then of course she married Kevin federal line but it was all just email. I just remember being doing chelsea lately and there was talk. We'll her kids taken away. And i remember sitting there going. There's no way she's going to lose custody of her kids. Come on i mean very few mothers do and she's she's going through a little struggling time but it's mostly because these paparazzi's are falling everywhere. Well you guys probably know this then. The dad got a conservative ship. And a lot of people after watching this special. This documentary said where was the mom. Why wouldn't the mom because parents divorced at that time. Try to get the conservative ship. Jamie her father was in and out of jobs Former drug addict. I believe maybe not drug out excessively alchoholic and So why would he be the person in charge. The thing is is. I think he was the first one to go to lawyers and try to get this into the works. And she was in a fifty one fifty at a mental institution when all this paperwork was done and the judge signed it. And now it's been you know fifteen years or something that this has been going on for and right away after this was done she started doing sitcoms again. Of course shortly after that she got her residency and she was making three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a night doing that show and then she left planet hollywood. And she now she's gonna do another huge residency at this new stage that they built her at the mgm and they do this big livestream thing and she comes up and then she just like and walks off talking to talk to reporters. She's not going to say anything. She's not going to do a song and shortly after that. She did it announcement saying my father is sick. And i'm not going to be performing. I'm going to put this residency off and that was really bizarre. People like is he sick. And i really don't know what the now looking back. I'm like i really don't know if he was sick of that was just her way out because now it looks like she in fact knew that the only way to get out of this conservatorship get her freedom back from her father was to stop working and stop making money and i. I would love to see what happened the day she was like you know what what the hell am i doing. Aren't going to sign up for another two or three year contract with them performing every night making all this money which. I don't get to choose how i want to spend the money. I don't get to get in the car and drive. I don't get to make a reservation and stay in hawaii on a whim without checking with twelve other people. Screw this you know. And she goes to her place in malibu during covert or wherever she is. Jesus been doing these weird instagram posts. Where her voice has changed. It's not the same voice. You're seeing these interviews on the documentary. And she's like ok guys. I've heard that a lot of been wondering what i'm going to do for the new year one. I'm gonna try to finish a pilates class to. I'm gonna try to meditate three. I'm going to try to eat better. And for i'm going to try that ice cream diet. And when she's doing it she's like it. Looks like she's definitely reading it whether it's a cue card but somebody else's there and the fact that she said i heard you guys not having reading your comments and one thing in the new year you guys asked me was Of course photos are weird. The makeup soy's like various mudgee. She's always wearing these crop tops. Sometimes she's dancing and you know i just really hope that I hope the mother gets involved. I hope that that the judge is able to watch this. Because i think when the judge granted this he was watching all the crazy news everyday. Let's just like the rest of us and this weird sam. Lufti was after an eye at the time. I was four the conservative ship. I'm like gosh. I don't want other people to take advantage of it this way. You know the data's there the other people are there to make sure that she stays healthy. No weirdos get around her. She's able to have visitation with her boys. But now after all these years it does seem really wrong and I think that this is going to be the catalyst to make whatever judges involved to open his eyes and maybe reconsider This conservative ship for

I mean, I was already worried about like my daughter who's three going to preschool and like she loves we have all the Rick and Morty like stuffed animals, and plus, she's and so she'll play with them. If you like, mister Q. B Butthole. Yeah, I don't know how that's gonna go over playing that with other Children. It's been really amazing to see how big Rick and Morty has become, like I remember when it was sort of like this little niche. Animated chauffeur for nerds and for You know, for people who like really kind of sophisticated comedy, and then it just becomes this worldwide phenomenon. And it made me think about your character, Beth. So for people who haven't seen the show, can you tell me who Beth was when you started and sort of who she's become, as the serious has gone on. Yes. Oh, so she's the sort of mother of the family. Um, Rick and Morty is the grandfather of the grandson. And you think you're gonna watch this grandfather grandson? Go on these like wild sci fi adventures. But what it ends up going into is like these real kind of rough family dynamics and on day kind of You know, not just this sci fi cartoon but asking these existential questions like if life is meaningless, and there are infinite universes, does anything really matter? So that's rickon Gordy in general, and then the best starting out kind of that, you know, as the Matriarch of the family and playing the mom and then over time, And as the seasons went on, you find out how much she is like her dad and the fact that when she was little, he had to build her a secret world. Because she was making whips to make people like her and mind control hair clips. As a young girl. You find out that she is kind of a lot like her dad, and and then and then, as the seasons go on. She wants to either stay or leave, And we don't know if she's a clone or not a clone, and that's been super fun to play kind of death. And then this alternate best as well. Space that it's funny like it. Z must be a challenge to sort of play your character and also sort of more sinister. We're like, deceptive version of your character. But it's all the same voice like You're not changing too much, you know. Yeah, Totally, totally. It's been. It's been super fun, and obviously we didn't know at any point that that was coming like we just get the scripts as we get them. We have no knowledge of. You know what's happening down the road in the future, so that part's so fun. I mean, to see like a Rick and Morty script in My Inbox is one of my favorite things because the minds of Justin Royal and and Dan Harmon are Unbelievable. There. So the scripture so smart and so funny and so wild. I love them. It's the number to show in all of North America like we were looking at in the US anyway. We were looking at the survey was conducted in the US to see what TV shows were being binge the most during the pandemic. So number one friends. Friends is number one. Right? Yes, I love it. I'm a big friends fan. And then sort of like the anti friends Rick and Morty is is not know that his number two in some states record is number one. What do you make of it? What do you make of it that during the pandemic, it's gotten even more successful. That's really cool. I didn't know that. I think I think people want to laugh and people want to escape into another world. And I think that it's a You know, a time for For a real need for for comedy, and the growth of It has been interesting to watch kind of through the eyes of comic con over the years like we would go to comic con You're one. It hasn't been released yet. So all the questions were to Dan Harmon about community and then the next year, it was like a couple of weeks walking around and then the next It was like a sea of Mr Poopy bottles and bricks and all these different characters was kind of cool. I get to see how it's how it's growing, but I'm glad it's bringing people less. Is it this time? Is it ever a bit intense? Like I know that I know that Even Dan and Justin, the folks behind the show have had to come out and talk to the fans of the show. Because they could be intense. They could be a bit toxic. That could be a bit sort of awful. Now when we're talking about a pretty small Group of fans of the show, but I can't imagine what that's like to be sort of in it to be in in the show, with all that's going on. Yeah, it is. It is wild. The degree to which you know I can't watch all the little pieces and I am you know, I think that That, you know, I don't. I don't actually read a ton of those, uh, those sites and comments, but I think it's It's cool how passionate people are about it. It reminds me because when you started, I think the first way we all knew you was when you were on when you were on Roseanne and you were brought in court famously, is second Becky. Like one of the biggest shows of the nineties, You replaced the original actress who played the daughter Becky, until the original Becky came back again. From what? I understand you were in high school in Canada, and then it got that gig. Yeah, it was crazy. I was 16 when I auditioned and I I was living in Vancouver and working on a couple things that were filming up here, but really haven't done anything under very much. And and, uh, got this audition and put myself on tape. And, um, I think we even like Mailed a VHS tape, You know, down to the states, and they called and said, We're gonna fly you down for an audition on day were seven of us and all the others were like 21 living in L. A actresses and all of us were doing this scene with Glenn Quinn. Who played Mark back his husband and the whole scene was like making out. You're making out with him. And you're like, you know, get job. The gas station, baby. Come and get it down to the gas station, baby. Come here. That was the same like there's this 24 year old, handsome Irish actor. How am I gonna remember one line and they said we'll let you know within a week. And then, a week later, they called back and said, Okay, come back tomorrow and do a scene with Roseanne and was like on the infamous coach on the set, and they were calling out. You know, camera numbers and having a laugh track and seeing if you could kind of adjust to those elements, and then they called and said, You got it. And Remember going to a party that night and telling a couple people and it just sounded so crazy. Sounded crazy. Yeah. Sounded crazy that you were in. You were in high school, and you were telling people having to be on the number one sitcom in the world. They would have been right to be like They're not. You're not like taking over for someone else like they're gonna not have like It just sounded insane. And we already had, like great seven. We already had, like someone like lied about being on the mini pops. Remember the many pox which were so amazing? I don't I don't know. The minibar like a Canadian band was like a Canadian kids. And you would like You know they would sing covers, and they were dressed these cool eighties clothes and they were amazing and someone in our schools that they were going to be in the mini pops. That wasn't true. So all the sudden I felt this feeling of like I'm lying about being in many parts, and then so then I kind of spread it on our school pretty quick. And then they called me back on Monday morning, and they said We're having cold feet about replacing Becky. So we don't know if we're gonna do it. We will do will pick you if we do it, but we're gonna put you on hold for four months. We're going to tell you in September just got this is jumping. You couldn't be a Minnie Bob situation, right? You're gonna have to go back to all of them ago. No, no, they change their mind like all you have Sara? Sure they did Change your mind. And then you then you find out Yeah. And then s O was my great 12 year and, um And I would go back and forth because they would shoot two or three weeks on one week off. So we would shoot Monday to Thursday. I would get on a plane first thing Friday morning and be at school in Canada on Friday afternoon and then and then fly back Sunday night or stay home for a week if we had a week off and kind of commuting back and forth I'm really interested in people like you who have On gun traditional first big gig like I was talking to Linda Cardellini the other day who played Lindsay on Freaks and geeks, Right? And you know, so there you go. She's her big break. Is this show that considered to be the greatest show of all time and then gets canceled after one season and I said, You know, what does that do for you for the rest of your career, and similarly for you your first Big is to replace beloved Actor. In a show that is the number one show on that, and it was it was controversial. When it happened, it was people couldn't believe that it was happening. And then I wonder if that taught you anything in your career going forward, whether it had hardened to you or heart And you do you think it did something to you? I think both of those things I think, you know, I mean, because Yeah, came. She would least he was Becky from seasons 1 to 5. I was six and seven. She came back for the beginning of eight. And then I came back for the rest of eight. And for nine. And so it was definitely, you know. As a kid. Um, it's you know, it's confusing and hard when they brought her back, and then they called this. Okay. Now, will you come back? And and so that piece, I think, um Was the challenging part of it for sure, And the other piece that was challenging was just going from complete obscurity to going on the number one show, and then you're at that age where gynecology just kind of wanna blend of a sudden that piece of it was it was hard, but they incredible part was the obvious, unbelievable gift of working with John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf and Roseanne and Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki and Sandra Bernhardt. And I mean it was It was crazy. It was like stepping into having not really worked out much to working with this top, unbelievably talented comedians and just watching them. Work and what They would do with a script from a Monday morning table read Till Thursday night Tape night. It was such a huge learning experience and so so interesting and obviously You know, open so many doors for me. I mean, I was Like my entire diamonds, girls. My nickname was second package would be like we got second back in the seventies. Really Good. Yeah. Yeah,

Remembering Our Belonging

"And welcome. Some really glad to be with you. Were exploring tonight part two. It's a continued reflection on belonging and the pathways to belonging and as you know as social beings belonging the urge for belongings in our dna and the research. The growing research on our need to belong is. It's very very striking for us. Human jr that how much the sense of connection having active relationships impacts our health our happiness or longevity and it's true for poor for wealthy across all populations our relationship and feelings of connection matter and as we know of course there's all sorts of unhealthy versions of connecting heard. One story of these three novices in i see side monastery and they got caught in a kind of minnie's nami and got stranded on an island They'd been voting got stranded on an island hundreds of miles away and so after keeping themselves alive for several weeks they found a cave and it had zafy. who's in it sitting cushions. You never know on on these desert islands and they sat down in the spirit of the cave began communicating in an echoing voice. Saying you know you found your way to the funk spot on the island and you properly assumed often i will grant you three wishes as the first i one of the novices will my wishes to return to the monastery and vish he disappeared. He was gone in the second set. I two i also on return to the monastery. I you know wanna learn at the feet of my beloved abbott shusha. He was gone to and the third side. You know these friends have been my song my community. I miss them and i want them back rush. So as you know when we don't have a secure sense of belonging we develop either. It's unhealthy attachments. Were kind of like codependence. And the and the like are we move more. Towards avoidance were. There's aversive nece towards others and we either push away or we withdraw ourselves yet if we step back and we really look in the deepest way even when we've had bad formative attachments even when there's a sense that are belonging has been severed through harm from our caregivers and trauma and the way the society treats us three reality is. We can never be removed from this web of a living dynamic energy that we belong to the reality is our living forms are inextricably embedded in this natural world. I read a an interesting article in the new york times This is research. That's been done in deep forests and how there are fungal threads that are connecting all the trees and all the even trees of different species throughout the forest and they're responsible for communication between the trees and the flow of nutrients often from the older trees to the younger trees. We are made of an embedded in this living world. You know our deepest nature is that basic aliveness an awareness and love that really gives rise to this world so we're reflecting on belonging and the gift when we intuit and trust star. Nate is a very profound sense of peace when we belong when there's that sense of one nisar connection. There's nothing out there that threatens us. Everything's part of our hearts and for me. The best words that describe belonging are feeling totally at home. You know at home for me with my life in the world. there's a sense of being part of the living world part of a presence. It's larger than our small self and also one with that larger presence so we're holding the world in our heart now. Some of you may be listening right now and what i'm saying sounds abstract. You know just otherworldly and yet most of you have had tastes of true belonging. It might not have had conscious tastes because we we tend to kind of skim over those moments and re fixate on fears really quickly yet. We couldn't long to belong unless we had some taste of it. So you might sense when you've had tastes for many of us. It's when our minds stoop quiet down. It doesn't happen often but it can happen. Perhaps there's a sense of belonging when there's that absurd. Your wave for of loving for a deer one could be outside that wonder at the stars or gratitude. When someone's kind you know maybe a feeling of care compassion. When there's someone who's hurting

The Hotshot Crews, And How They Assist In Fighting Wildfires

"Nearly a hundred million acres. California is a big state and during the two thousand twenty wildfire season over eight thousand eight hundred fires have contributed to the burning of nearly four point five million acres making it the largest fire season in California's modern history to put that in context, the twenty twenty-five have been more than the last three years combined with five of the six biggest fires in California's history happening this year unfortunately, there's been over ten thousand four hundred structures that have been damaged or destroyed, and at least thirty one fatalities relating to the wildfires. Today over fifty, six, hundred firefighters continue to battle twenty, two wildfires in the Golden State hotshot crews are the most highly trained skilled and experienced type of hand crews. Hotshot crews made up twenty, two, twenty, two wildland firefighters who respond to lodge high priority fires across the state and the nation and fight the most challenging part of the fire. They are trained and equipped to work autonomously in remote areas for extended periods of time with little or no logistical support. The Texas Canyon Hotshot crew located in the Santa Clara Valley in Southern California was established back in nineteen, fifty four. Zuni Indian served as firefighters with Texas Canyon until the one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, fire season, and the knife wing can't Cina is the official symbol of the crew. which has fought fires in just about every western state including Alaska. I catch up with Justin good who's been hotshot with Texas Canyon crew for five years. Justin is about to deploy to her eighth fire of the season what you're about to hear. Past no views and opinions not those of the US Forest Service or for that matter anyone else. I stopped by asking just dean about pets which is trying to quiet down. So I have have a couple of animals. So I have chip he's a Yorkie. Very small but very brave, and then I also have a mini pig that you know as many pigs are not that many once they totally grow about seventy pounds. He still sleeps in bed with me mostly on the couch and just hangs out. And these two they they don't really get along but they don't get along that makes sense. But there's probably a whole instagram feed of dogs and pigs. There is which is influenced by I was trying to get him to like you know sleep in the same bed together and they'd never do but you know whatever nobody likes his like instagram. Well if anyone's life is life, ANC Ram it might be you you. You're kind of like a real life action hero. Funny I was thinking about that like the more you get to know someone the more you realize. Only God. Everything. So maisy Minnie actually like see how it really is. Your odd everybody's got. Everyone's the same. You know you never got problems. Is a Texas. Kenyon, hotshot just incas you all one I am a Texas cannon hotshot. It really is cool. So it's like it seems probably pretty arrogant actually call yourself. A hotshot is literally in our job name. So we're. Probably done a little bit more research to find out exactly how many hotshot cruised are are in the nation. There's not a ton of us. It's a pretty. Small. Amount of of groups. So we're basically like a special uses module that go too hard to access difficult access portions of the fire or fires. So a lot of time with wildfires they might start off the road, but then they burn up kinda going towards the middle of nowhere or they start from a lightning strike in the middle of nowhere they're very difficult to access and you're not gonna be able to drive up there and put Jose from the road says where we come in were a hand crew. So we either hike in or we fly in to get those more difficult portions the fires

Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert continues to impress

"Game. It doesn't count the standings. But, boy Oh, boy, I watched Friday night the Inter squad on TV, Luis Robert Too long home runs. This guy looks like a monster. It reminds me of Felipe Alou is managing the Expos back in the I want to stay in the mid nineties, and somebody asked him about this young prospect named Vladimir Guerrero. And he had not played in the big leagues yet, and Felicia's answer Wass. When you just look at him, you think superstar and that's almost the same thing you get. When you look at Louie's Robert because time during spring training, you just look at him and he just looks. Like he's going to fill that part of a superstar he has. There's just a GN it factor. And then you watch him play and it solidifies every year. Everything you think about the guy and it's almost reminiscent of like I said what Philippe has said about a young unknown Vladimir Guerrero at the time when he was coming on the market. The White Sox and mean they didn't get him cheaply. It was think $26 million for a guy you don't know if he's going to turn out, but you didn't hear Yankees Dodgers. Cubs, red socks like the ones that have the highest payrolls. Why was that? I know the socks have done a magnificent job getting Cuban players going all way back to Minnie Minoso. Tha Jose of Bray you they've got Moncada. But why were some of the heavyweights not chasing this guy? You know what I wish I had a specific answer for you. I don't have one. But I will say what? You just reiterate what you just said, and amplify on it. The attacks have been a really good job of scouting the Cuban players. Now Moncada was signed by the Red Sox and came in the trade from from Michael Kopeck. But with Michael Kopeck, I should say For sale, but it's just one of those things where the White Sox I think maybe they do their homework better than anyone else. And that's why they were able to get a guy like Louise Robert, because He just looks like the really, really feel He does just looking at him, and then you see him in the box, but it's like, Oh, my God. How good can this guy be? Um You're right. It wasn't cheap. But it wasn't like out of this world money either. And, ah, kudos to the White Sox Foreign office and they're scouting. You know, this is the work of scouts. Thes air, not analytics driven. Data. You define a guy who has never left the island of Cuba, where you don't have a lot of information. This is scouting. And obviously you look, I'm a big proponent of scouting, and I'm a It's frustrating to see how it's being minimalized and Almost extinguished in some places, but there is still a place for scouting. And here's a prime example. We're talking to Pedro Gomez from ESPN. When you look at a team

Martina Castro on Bilingual Imposter Syndrome

"When you grew up speaking Spanish yet like my official first language is Spanish so three year old. Martina only spoke Spanish at home then the moment I entered preschool. My mother realized that I was struggling. Like in just to understand and she freaked out and and put me in front of the television and I learned English with Minnie and Mickey Mouse and cartoons in the morning and quickly through kindergarten became more fluent in English. And then it was my and people ask me and I feel way more fluent. My native language is English for sure. 'cause he's something else about it. Yeah which is I think is important to say I am not so emotionally fraught. Be To me too. And that's what I wanna get across because it's it sounds like okay. Let's wrap it up with a bow Martinez bilingual not true. I make these minor. Mistakes that throw people off. Wait a second. They're minor insofar as an example the subjunctive every once in a while. I'll just say it when I'm not supposed to or or or miss it when I shouldn't and Otherwise perfect right and then all of a sudden I I don't say the subjunctive right and so native speakers will be like. Oh well that's weird But it's it's so small that they don't correct me and therefore I have now fully ingrained these errors in my brain and I know that I will go out in the world and especially formal letters on email or I'll go out in the world and speak in public. I know I'm GonNa make these mistakes and I feel like an impostor you know. I'm not fully bilingual. I can I can never proof-read fully fully a script. I would prefer to have a professional translator proofread it. I'm making a living off of by being bilingual. And so it's a huge imposter syndrome contributor for me but I think it's so important to say this out loud every time I do. There's someone especially if I'm on stage speaking for an audience. There's always someone out there who feels identified with me because the language is such an a barrier but also a door to to this part of yourself and how dare we re remove that for someone. Because it's it's just not. It's just unfair that we've had to grow up with that this feeling that we don't belong if we don't speak well enough or you know somehow we can only belong if we can fake the accent or we can fake being that person you know like. I. It's been apart. It's been a theme of my entire life. It's my responsibility to go out and represent the people like us that are not fully one or fully the other that live in this middle space. This is what it is to be bilingual. Truly it means you don't always understand everything. There's always something you're missing. You're constantly code switching and you're never fully one or the other and that's awesome. That's the thing I want to get to where I'm trying to I. Want to be a proponent of that because I've suffered the other thing my entire life which is owned you better fit in one or the other you know like I was American at school I was Uruguayan at home I was. You know it's just. It was a whole congressman. Yeah constant it causes you to.
