The Murder Rule
"Usually in our criminal legal system. In order to convict someone of a crime, there are two primary factors at play the first is. What a person does their action. The second is what that person intended to do. In Law we call what a person does. Actus Reus what is the action? And what is on a person's mind? What they intended to do is known as men's Raya. And it's the hallmark of a civilized legal system. We care about an individual's actions and we care about an individual's intent. Let me give you an example of this principle. For crime of misdemeanor theft. The prosecutor has to prove to a jury that someone took something. That's the act. With the intent to permanently deprive the rightful owner of that thing that's the intent. So. Let's say. I'm in a store to buy toothbrush. And I pick up toothbrush and I leave the store. Now, that would look like a theft. Let's say that I left the store because I got an emergency phone call from my daughter's school and there was no reception store. So I rushed outside to hear the call. Or. Let's say that I left the store because I suddenly realized that I left my wallet in the car. In both of those situations I did leave the store with the toothbrush. But I had no intent to permanently deprive the store. The prosecutor could not show that I committed a crime because I didn't intend to do so. What you do matters, it does what you do matters but a person's intent according to the law also matters and this makes perfect sense. You wouldn't want to convict somebody of a crime because of an accident and Mrs just for Misdemeanor Theft. And it makes sense because in our legal system, we say. I almost have to put parentheses around say we say that liberty is paramount. Before, we're going to let a prosecutor strip you of your rights since you away from all of your loved ones, send you away from your family, your job, your career you're calling and put you in a prison sale. They should have to prove that a person did something wrong. And meant to do something wrong. However. There is one very old relic in our criminal law. Where what a person actually does and what a person intends to do. Does not matter at all. A prosecutor in this, it blows my mind to think about this. A prosecutor can lock up someone for life. For, a murder that a person did not commit a murder that everyone knows they did not commit. A prosecutor can lock someone for life and everyone knows that they did not intend to hurt anyone. A prosecutor can tell a jury that it doesn't matter that the person didn't intend to hurt anyone. And, this rule is known as the felony murder rule. And it is incredibly problematic tens of thousands of people all over the country from coast to coast are in prison because of this one single rule right now. This rule says that if a person is committing a felony, let's say robbery. And in committing that robbery, a person gets killed. The, felony murder rule says everybody who committed the robbery can now also be held responsible for the murder. That law came from the Middle Ages in England. But. It has now been banned in every country whose legal system originally came from England. It has been abolished in Ireland. It has been abolished in Canada in India it was abolished in England in Nineteen fifty six. But it's still exist in almost every state in the United States of America,
What are the origins of English
"Think if it is a bunch of. It is probably a bunch of women, MOMS and aunts on the island of England. That's probably the people who invented the English language and they were called angles. So they didn't even call English. They called it anguish. My Name's Tom Howell and I used to write the Oxford Dictionary encounter and I wrote a book called the Rude Story of English and it is a history of some dudes and some woman thousand five hundred years ago trying to invent the language. So in a sense when you learned English. From the older people in your family. They are inventing English in a way because that is going to be a bit different. From the English that their grandparents spoke and then their great grandparents spoke and so on and so on and so on. Until when you go back far enough, it would be very difficult for us now to understand like great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great great grandparents, saints which other think of how friend and neighbor are spell differently neighbors eat before I, friend is I before e friend came from one place where they said free owned once upon a time and neighbor came from another place where they were saying. It was actually called a near Ghabbour. You know has GM neighbor Mrs Weird thing we don't pronounce it now. It's just people stop pronouncing it properly but. Once upon a time, they would've been like, no, it's wrong to say neighbor without Jeanette they would have been like the correct way to say that is Nia Gabor because it was a boor who lived near you. So generations go by people make mistakes people say things a bit differently. People put on funny voices. Things Change. Now we say neighbor instead of new? Kabar I guess it is. The English is so complicated because it comes from all around the world. Yeah. What recalled English today like if you look up a word on the Internet to find out where it came from could come from anywhere. Like bungalow comes from India but you know even if you went back all the way to what the angles were saying, their language also came from all around the world like their language came from. Iraq and India and Russia and all kinds of weird places like people have been talking to each other for at least one, hundred, thousand years. So all of us, any point in history might say who invented our language and the odds would almost be some not dudes some arts and mother's thousand, five, hundred years ago. kind of doesn't matter where you are. That's always kind of be the answer.
When a new plant is actually many cuttings tied together
"Board. What she calls a scandal means Mike Hans plant from baby plants dot com a company in the Netherlands which. Is Very popular for selling these very small young plants. So if you go on the website, you can see can buy an allocation Sabrina in a four centimeter diameter pot four about four and a half pounds and no wonder they are proving very popular for growers in Europe and the UK. She writes it arrived absolutely sodden looking bit limp. So I took it out of the pot to remove as much putting media as possible and reported on doing this I discovered is not actually one plump six stems tied together with an elastic band. There was some roots, but it'd a bit difficult to tell where they're coming from without separating the whole thing which I'm not keen on doing is this normal practice to Selah plant like this first of all a word about the name of this plant they own selling in this plant as Philodendron Scan Danes Mike. Cans now I think I mean I roy taxonomy as we all know is A. Bit of a minefield but. This is what I would call. Philodendron. Hetero. Mike Hans Eight trailing philodendron with these beautiful bruhns e velvety leaves, which is proper adorable unlovely. It was sold as a medium sized plant with the Drama Troupe of twelve centimeter height five centimeters. So not a tiny tiny baby plum Mrs rose to be a slightly bigger one and I contacted baby plants direct to ask about this issue. And this was their reply. We don't grow this plot ourself. So we have asked the grower, the blood is grown from cuttings they put them together with the support band to grow and make new routes. This plant is grown and sold in a pediatric nurse report that's quite a big pot for the plant. So that is why they use more cuttings to fill the pot so that. Is the deal we've got this plant sold as a medium plot, but in fact, it is a bunch of cuttings. The first thing to say about this is the practice among nurseries of packing, Paul with young plants or indeed cuttings to make it. Look more full is very, very, very widespread i. saw someone the other day with polycom Chow Doria elegance on twitter I. Think this might. Have, been in house our actually and they're wondering what to do because some of the lease looking really crispy and looking at the part you could just see there were so many young seedlings chuffed in this part together that they were just out competing one another. So the question is, is it fair to describe this plant as a medium plant when it's made up of cuttings? Well? It's a really widespread practice is very, very common I can see how lots of people new to the hobby would be very confused about this and wouldn't really understand the same happens with Swiss cheese plants, lots of baby seedlings in apart, and as a result, it looks like you've got a more mature plant that you have. Of course, with these kinds of plants you can't tell by looking at the foliage just how mature the plot is. The elastic bands interesting one again, this is certainly not unheard of come across many people who have. Taken their plots out of parts and discover that there's an elastic band in there. Is it how I want to receive a medium philodendron plant probably not I have to say I don't really want there to be an elastic band hin rather plant because although I'm probably going to spot it because I usually do look at the root ball lots of people are not going to spot that and as the reach grow on the stems grow. It's probably GONNA. Start restricting the plants growth and ideally there's cuttings shouldn't be all shoved in exactly the same spot in the pot. So that is something that concerns me. But as I, say, it's a fairly widespread practice. What would say carry is if you are unhappy with this unhappy with description and if anyone else out, there is in the same boat to go back to the supply and say, this is not acceptable. I am not happy with this because the only way that things are gonNA. Change is if supplies realize that customers are not happy with this way of doing things. So I think it's about trying to get our message across to the suppliers that they need to look. Again at the way they are packaging and putting their plants so that they will survive in the long-term because it's it's not very sustainable either to have a plot that is. Hobbled from the beginning and likely to die because it's been either shoved in apart with loads of its fellow cuttings or young plants all because it's got a band around it that could be restricting growth and causing problems in the interests of balance. I should say that I have also heard lots of good reports about baby plants, dot com, and a d like the. Way that they offer a chance for you to start off with a really spoil specimen of Aplomb, which you can then bring on as opposed to buying a really big specimen, which then might struggle a bit more auto data.

How to use video for your sales proposals
"Hey everybody todd Caponi here to share what I think is not so obvious tip around the use of video in you're selling efforts. So the obvious is obviously Use in prospecting. With I think is a great tool. You'll see a lot of posts around how to leverage video to bring personality to your prospecting efforts. I agree with that as long as it's done in a personalized invaluable way versus a record one video Senate to one hundred people of course. What. About downstream in your selling efforts through the process now, let's think about what's going on in the world right now. Obviously, we're still in this case where all of our buyers are remote. So consensus selling was obviously always hard but consensus buying just became a lot harder than that I mean you're buyers don't have the benefit of just running into somebody in the hallway or grab coffee in the break area or on their commute if. They take the train or however that works to be able to build that consensus within their organization. So what did they do? Well, it requires a formal conversation every time they were trying to build consensus. Now, let's think about your proposals for a second. What do you typically do when you deliver proposal well, one or two things number one we either send it and hope for the best, and maybe we'll get a call or we try to. Schedule A call to go through it later, or we require the buyer to get on the phone with you. You send it live, go through it live well, I think there is an in-between stop that not only adds personality to your proposal, but it allows the buyer to maintain control and use it in building consensus within the organization and how do you do that? Well, absolutely, you can use video for that. Here's what I do so. I will typically send over a proposal and with it I will include a short three minute video that goes along with it that explains what they're getting. So in this example, I would record a video just like this and say, Hey, Mr Mrs client here's the proposal based on what we talked about. First of all, thank you for even considering me for this event but based on a recommendation I'm suggesting two pieces to this we do A. Keynote. Then we do a breakout that goes into kind of a workshop style. This proposal lays out. So I've explained that concept and then I've explained in it. As you can see here, the two different pieces where we'll start with transparency, and then we'll do a workshop on the transparent negotiation concepts I. Then we'll walk that buyer through the different pieces of the proposal including the logistics that are required to make sure that we're prepped in. Its fully customized a little bit about expectations. Of course, I walked through the pricing and how that's all laid out in determined and then as a tool for the client I will include a little piece that helps them with the are wire justification if they need it in many cases they do and then a bio as they're sharing and building consensus within their organization who is this Todd Caponi guy all in one place and I explain it. Just like that in this video that goes along with my proposal. So I think that this is a super easy thing that you can do that will set you apart from your competitors, add personality to your proposal and send it so that the client digested on their time schedule but more importantly, it removes friction from the consensus buying process, which right now is so vital.
Compromising: How and When
"My chickens how are you? I for one cannot believe that summer's over it is dark apm unacceptable. Don't understand what happened. I feel like I went through a wormhole. Like may was a thousand years long and now it's almost September it is over. The side story. But related. So I used to do this kind of tantric base meditation practice I studied with this teacher named Sally Kempton forbid not styled with her like she knew me personally but I went to her workshops teachings I, talked to her a few times. So anyway, the auto workshop she was doing California and I had this superintendent experience where I basically felt like everything in my. Body. All the energy rushed together and contracted in words to this pinpoint, and then it exploded and I felt like infinite space inside of me. It was really really fucking wild. So I went up to talk to her about it afterwards like in the receiving line everybody is talking about their meditation and she's just like moving us along and I was like Oh my God this like. This wild thing happened it blew my mind will a blind like describing it to her like and she just casually said. Oh. Yeah. You went through the wormhole. Like this was just like Mrs just like a known thing like no big deal like Oh. Yeah. The Worm Hall So. So many different ways of experiencing being a human this world really blows my mind. And I think it's always a reminder to me also of how many incredible tools there are for navigating the human experience. Obviously. Thought work is my favorite, but it's not the only thing in the world and I don't ever want to be dogmatic it right I think as humans. We want to be right and we want to be certain. We want to know the answer, but that's what makes us mentally rigid I. Talk about this. In the mental flexibility episode, we can get rigid about thought work itself that it has to be the one answer to the universe or the only thing that works make sense right that it has to be right. But it doesn't have to be objectively, right. We can't know that one hundred percent for sure. Even science even scientific consensus gets. Revised rate over time. We don't believe a lot of things that the best medieval scientists believed and in a thousand years there people are not gonNa believe a lot of things that are best scientists now believe is so just has to be right for you. What gets you the results that you want. Right, that's always the question. Is this helpful if it's helpful than use it wherever it comes from? So in the spirit of that kind of flexibility. Let's talk about compromise and this is gonna be assured and sweet episode because it's not actually a huge complicated topic it's just that we like to be confused about it. Kinda comes up a lot so I want to address. He's this is one of the things that I students tend to love to get confused about because when you are socialized as a woman and basically taught that you should constantly compromise on what you want to make other people happy. That becomes kind of baseline idea in your head right and so you start to feel guilty if you ever choose to not compromise and you. Start to think that you need a really good reason to not compromise. So you start to question and doubt yourself right and you start to feel defensive if you don't WanNa compromise and sometimes when that's the kind of mental and emotional state you're in, you learn thought work and you may be tempted to use it to just be okay with whatever someone else wants you to. Do so that you can go along with it and not have to deal with the discomfort of disagreement. So this would be a way of using thought work against yourself. Right? Like I talk about in one of the recent episodes if you are just trying to thought work to be okay with doing things, you don't WanNa do so that you don't have to deal with. Your own discomfort that's not the point of thought work right if thought work is to liberate you which means dealing with your own discomfort. Then the other thing that I see is sometimes people are coming from the opposite point of view right? Like part of their of awakening to gender socialization has been to really doubled down unjust never compromising like doing whatever the fuck they want. which is like I'm not saying that's good or bad right but. Sometimes, people than objective thought work because they think that believing thought work means. That you should just be okay with anything right? It's like A. To being tall your whole life that you should compromise. It can start to feel like a positive rebellion or independence to not compromise, and then people start to have this sort of adversarial relationship with thought worker with the ideas where they are like will you're just teaching people that you know they should compromise about anything because they can always change their thought about it. Of course no. Taking pride in not compromising is not really empowering either. Either you are thrall to your own fear of other people, and so you compromise all the time that is not empowering that feel good. But if you were in thrall to your own rebellion or ego that also does not feel good and is not actually empowering. Being too far in either direction is not empowering. You're going to notice a theme chickens, but the question is never properly posed as what should I do? Should I compromise or not? What action should I take? That is always the wrong question. The question is why are you compromising are thinking about compromising or why are you not compromising? What is the thought producing that action?
LeBron becomes all-time leader in playoff wins
"All tonight. LeBron at another milestone to your resume. Passing Derek Fisher becoming the NBA's all time leader in a playoff wins. I know you have said time and time again, you'll reflect on those milestones later, but to play at the level you're playing at and achieve that milestone in your 17. What does that say about what we're trying to accomplish? It says that I played with a lot of great teams says that I played a lot of great teammates, great coaches in Cleveland in Miami and now here in Los Angeles, you don't get those wins without your teammates so on the coaching staff that prepares and do all the preparation Behind the scenes video coordinators, the guys who helped rebound the basketballs force assistant coaches that trainers the athletic staff. So on so on, so it doesn't happen without the supporting cast and a swell. I'm able to stay here with this achievement, but it's all about the three organizations. I've been with calves, the heat and now the Lakers because without them, I wouldn't be in this position. Speaking of the way you're supporting cast played tonight. Defensively, particularly in that second half. What did you guys find that allowed you to lock into Rockets offense. We know in the first half going into the half time that we didn't play our best defensively. We allowed him to get into the lane without contest. We lost him to hit some threes. What I'll contest are rotations was slow. So when we went to the locker room, we watched a film. And we had conversation right away on what we can do in the second half to get better and be better, and we was able to transfer it into the second half of the last thing I'll ask you about. I know Coach Vogel keeps on telling us That he is going to use the memory of Kobe Bryant to fuel this playoff run and continue to talk to the team about it. How have you channeled that to motivate you through this run through the postseason in this most unique environment, Then today, we just all we make him and his family proud, and that's all it's about Anybody's ever step foot and put on the Lakers jersey we hoped would make them proud as well from Kobe all the way down to everybody's ever played in Los Angeles have been a part of Los Angeles Lakers organization. That's what we're trying to do it Mrs Tradition here and it's our responsibility. When loser draw toe hold that with most responsibility and almost
The rise of vaccine nationalism should we be worried?
"So hell, we end this pandemic by making sure everyone in the world gets access to treatments or vaccines could determine how we respond to the next one. The world's wealthiest countries, Astrid your amongst them have already BRCA deals with pharmaceutical companies to preorder more than two billion doses of corona virus vaccines that's according to the Journal. Nature those deals, of course are contingent on with the vaccines, a proven safe and effective, and that's big eve. Streaming, problematic calypso chocolate do is director of global health policy with the Santa Fe Global Development and professor in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at imperial. College London obviously governments of wealthy countries heads to. Ten had to be seen to be acting and I totally appreciate the urgency over at all and I had the opportunity to talk to officials here from the UK government also from a European Commission. Now that set aside I think there's a number of issues with the current approach which ignores effectively the effectiveness questioned. The performance questions we're buying things were assuming we'll work. and. That means that goes are now shouldering the bulk of the risk. And they're shouldering the bulk of the is the commercial risk as well without being able to negotiate really on the price these things do come out scrambling is inevitable in my view economists professor I'd Hollas as President of incentives for Global, health, which aims to build a health impact fund to finance new treatments especially for neglected diseases but on the rise of Covid nineteen vaccine. Nationalism. He says one country that started off the United States has been explicit America first policy. In other countries the citizens were unlikely to be happy with their governments. If those governments came back to them with deal that said, we're just going to allow off the Americans to be vaccinated first, and then we'll take our turn along with all the citizens of the rest of the world. It's just became politically unfeasible. To do the right thing. So I think we're having the worst of every world. Really. So were engaging in a sort of an arms race where everybody's trying to out beat everybody else in buying things that we don't really know they will ever materialize or even if they do whether, they will work with the right product. So shouldering the risk as taxpayers effectively, we're doing it in a very bilateral fragmented fashion. So this undermines countries that are not as wealthy, and certainly the middle income countries have been left out of this conversation which I think is extremely problematic. So goelz plan says a global health community to support the low income countries through Garvey and effectively philanthropic subsidizing any successful vaccine doses. But then there's the vast majority of the world's. Forest people are living in very crowded conditions leaving middle income nations live in Nigeria Favila in in Brazil Brazilian cities, they live in Mumbai this country's middling concern necessarily going to qualify for this subsidy, but also not wealthy enough to engage in bilateral deals and behave the way the United Kingdom or the US are behaving been scandalous. I. Think that we haven't talked about these countries if the missing Middle Mrs add on a vaccine. What's the picture for the pandemic and getting on top of it? They will be disastrous for sure it will be disastrous. What will it be looking at situation where income countries close the borders a game where people are not admitted were basically sees. Stop people from moving around. We stop goods from moving around it. It's going to be absolutely disastrous situation is is certainly not desirable by what we want to have is as sensible efficient allocation of vaccines around the world. So. That the people who need to get back stated first everywhere get vaccinated first, and then we gradually progress in each country. Not instead vaccinating people who were very low risk in rich countries while people are at high risk in middle income and lower income countries are left unvaccinated that doesn't make any sense for the world is aside from the moral calculus here of yes. H Nation has an obligation to their own citizens. They also potentially have an obligation to the rest of the world because his biological imperative here isn't they this is a global pandemic. Yes. I'm mean one of the risks of course as if the viruses left to spread among people in lower income countries. At some point, it may mutate into a new form which existing vaccines don't offer protection against. So there is there is a reason for people in high income countries even people who don't care about poor people to say, let's just make sure that everyone gets vaccinated on a timely basis.
Matt Cooper on the Human Performance Engine
"There's stuff that we look at Mrs true with anything in life, right like their stuff that we look at and right away all our biases coming hit us right like we see someone just messing around and it's got the tag functional or someone's doing some sort of balanced based movement. We instantly tag that there's not enough strength. We got an appropriate exception last podcast we're getting new at this time and so obviously. There's always these biases that we have and it's not to say that these some of these methods are the perfect method right and I always enjoyed talking to you but digging into the parts of some of those methods that we would just kind of toss as functional garbage or whatever insert your term here. Right. But trying to dig into what actually is useful there what does fit with how the human body because clearly it's someone had to do it and feel good doing it. There had to be some component of that that felt right and good and worked with the body. And so the I was hoping we could get into a little bit of we're going to start talking about Fasha and fashion wiring. So though that in mind, what's your thought on? will explain actually I don't I don't see watch watch those videos probably enough as I should. But like kind of like the functional try triplane type activities and Fasha and fashion waring's could you give an overview of what train the fashion system means to you for athletes? Yeah. So basically, I think that training fashionable system in a holistic capacity is sort of one of the more missing ingredients when it comes to training faster here talked about in isolated silos, which is kind of interesting because a lot of people are very familiar with Myers work in anatomy trains. So they're used to hearing about how like the spiral line various slings body are interconnected yet for some reason, doesn't necessarily make it to the training application. It's like we all might be reading the same research, but we're distilling different applications, different training modalities from it. You'll hear it talked about a lot with just like foot morphology things like that, and that is very important for sure. But a lot of people aren't necessarily like the integration of fashion is making it to their training. Otherwise, they're not necessarily doing ballistic missiles is strength movements, our movements, corrective exercises that integrate all of these things at one time, and when you do that it kind of almost creates a suspension type effects like the wires about the Golden Gate Bridge, for example, give you titi southern coastal in a way that's like connecting the body with an segregate right tension with with integrity instead, you'll have these sort of. Isolated silos people might generate tension in one muscle group, but not in the same time until so you kind of tend to see some fashionable. Disjointed nece show up when someone goes to. Get Out. Court in the gym whatever. The. Whole ten legacy and the that whole element of it all and you spoke about the foot there and there was a presentation I did it was a couple of years ago on the foot and one of the pictures I included was It was a dinosaur and it was I. think it was like a break your source like one of those dancers. With a really long neck and it was talking out it was like each of those kind of like the same thing like each of the the ligaments that connected and the facial lines that connected each of those bones was really the the total structure, the total, the ten segregate created by that total structure was what was required to hold that net head up if It was just a muscle like individual muscles that were linking the bridges. It just wasn't going to happen or linking the spinal segments. It wasn't going to happen you needed something that was more that superseded like the single joints and kind of was like a grand more grand wrap that actually could hold that neck up and I think about that too I've mentioned this. On this show before but my kids, they like the book on Pop, the two and four, and they like to do that and so when they're jumping on, me barefooted you the the pressure that goes through the meal. Anyway like thirty pounds you know thirty and forty and the pressure that goes through the balls of their feet into me is is massive compared to. Any other strength output they might have. So it's like. Walking for skill and you don't really have any muscle, you can put all that pressure through one point through the facile system that to me I'm like, okay. Every time they step on like yeah, I think this is the fashion system at work here and that type of strength you just get. That's not the strength you build by a really by I mean you can get a better by lifting weights in particular ways that you do it but I feel like it's just so much more developmental and in our wiring and our physiology. Yeah, I mean and and that's kind of. A nice little loaded carry that you have. Manual loaded Gary Exercise of going on there with your kids. But Yeah I mean a lot of like in A. Kind of all straining conditioning community, it sorta sounds woke rights talk about the nervous system and I mean there is. Obvious, obvious obvious component for that. But if you're not also addressing on the structural side rights of the nervous the hardware, you're not also addressing it on the structural side by developing integrated fashion than you're still muscling through movements. Right. There's a lot of people who might think that they're doing performance training, but they're only really tackling it from kind of a rate of force production, nerve contraction, and relaxation velocity side of things. However, it's the fascist not integrated well, enough at least you're still kind of building an engine without building handling. Your building, our speed, but it abilities in the nervous system without. Having the structure transfer that energy, right? So the the fashioning well wound together is not just an injury prevention concepts right? It will yes. Distribute forces that you absorb in create appropriately or more appropriately. So you're less likely to get hurt but the fashion being well woven together almost like a basket or like one of those Chinese

You know you you don't WanNa keep a real good defense on the field all the time. which means you gotTa have a ball control offense which means running the ball. And he in order to take advantage of a great defense, you need those two components arose even a great defense is going to get beaten down and worn down. No doubt and that's what happened to Denver in two thousand seventeen buffalo thousand eighteen some of the jet teams that have been good defensively more often than not if you don't have in this day and age of football if you don't have good offense, you're you're limited, I mean there are examples and we pointed them out but your offense isn't very good meaning you can't run it your quarterbacks not that great. You don't have weapons even if you have a dominant defense, you know seven. Seven eight wins may be the best you can do, and that's what I would say. The answer is that they're their upside is eight wins. If their defense is excellent, the offense is not. but again, the examples of great defense and they won Games was Jacksonville the number one wash offense in the NFL in two thousand seventeen and they got to the postseason. The irony of that is their defense carries them in a ten three wildcard weekend. Win Over Buffalo and then the next week and they go to Pittsburgh and win forty five to forty two when everybody was expecting seventeen to ten But there were a lot of turnovers in that game but they they couldn't get off the field either in that game which was weird but. Anyway, we're getting closer to football season I. Think we're going to be our by the way. How about the big ten one last thing the big ten eleven to three two to postpone the season after it looked like at the end of last week, they were going to go ahead and play and they're gonNA play on Thanksgiving weekend, which was stupid to start a season Thanksgiving weekend. But they voted yesterday eleven to three the presidents and chancellors to postpone the fall football season and you know I guess. More thing to do. Yeah. Lot of schools Tommy my nieces are at at SEC schools ones at Tennessee, ones at south. Carolina might niece who's at South Carolina. She's got covid nineteen first week at school. Really she gets infected. Oh my gosh. She's in basically a host of a hotel room where they're quarantining the students that have it. But apparently, there's been a major outbreak on campus. She's she's not symptomatic. She had a bit of a sore throat and that was it and same thing Tennessee. My niece didn't get it but a lot of people on campus have it I mean you can Alabama apparently had a has had a major outbreak You know I'll be honest with you I. Don't think they should come home. I don't think they should be on planes or trains or you know bring that stuff home I think they should hang in there because right now. I don't know at South Carolina. Anyway. I could be wrong about this my sister, my call today with with an update on it but I don't know that anybody's getting sick. We will see all right anything else from you. That's how I got today boss. We had a lot going on today. We had a lot going on today. All right. Then we're done for the day Have a great rest of the day this evening possibility of no podcast tomorrow but we will definitely be back on Thursday. We don't do one tomorrow. Take care..
Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'
"Callous clan tainted by deceit and deception. That is the description of the Trump family by a former adviser and close friend of first lady Melania Trump. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff spoke with Lindsay Davis of ABC News the day before her book comes out. In Melania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady walk off claims that she's still working with investigators to dig into potential financial crimes committed in connection with Donald Trump's inauguration. She claims is an event planner. She was made the cover girl for what she calls inauguration shenanigans. In the interview, she explains why she thinks Donald and Melania Trump are perfect for each other before. Donald In Milan, you got married.

Using Mint Around Tomatoes to Keep Critters Away.
"Tim Sanderson email this morning and tim has a tip and a couple of questions for you too. But the tip is he says that Like how he puts this to? Mr and Mrs Squirrel. Love. To take one bite out of his tomatoes and strawberries. Show this year he he planted cement. Around the strawberries tomatoes and for the most part they leave him alone. Have you ever heard of that Well now. I'm. GonNa have to divide my mini plant, take it up out of the window well, where I keep it control and put it near the tomatoes because boy do I need that advice I've never heard that before but if he says, it works, it works suits me. Mark. For suburban. I have worked critters than you can believe now in in in his case and mine I, am aware of the squirrels taking one bite and I don't know why they have to do that. But my nemesis is deer. I. I have a short story on that mark. It comes to the point of a friend of mine had some deer repellent in a sprayer. He said, well, if you're having trouble, let me follow you home. I'll spray your stuff for you which he did. That was the night. Since the deer came back in and eight again at being again they had come in two nights before and if the top side of the tomatoes when he sprayed them, they dutifully came in and took them down to about Puckett. Heights. And then the following night. The rascals came in and ate them down to about eighteen inches and even eight the tomatoes from around the bottom boy now. There's certain things I can't do legally. AGREEM- So the repellent didn't work. Well I'm GonNa say no either we didn't get it on at the right density thickness or you know had the dilution I should say I I don't. Although I know that I have some ornery dear moving through. So Tim. Just defy. Just to be ornery. Tim also had another tippy says a lot of times when his tomatoes just start to ripen, he'll pick them and then let them ripen off the vine and that way you know the squirrels can't and and other critters can't get to them well, and I I'm I'm big on that I've never it for that reason. But I always go out well with the first frost or certainly freeze warning in the fall I go on and pick all the tomatoes anything bigger than an acorn on up to two cutting size as it is green as it is wrapped them in newspapers stack, I'm in a open. The box and let them then. Ripened overdue time. I've had tomatoes out of my garden as latest. Thanksgiving. So yeah I'm favor that and thanks to him. That's a good recommendation I've never done it to. Stop the squirrels. I always just use language on them. Wow. Yeah. Yeah.
What Is Ormus
"Or miss. Is. Actually, kind of a known entity. Yes. A non-proprietary term four miracle serum, Gu. I've already said when we mentioned Ormuz before every time I said, I want to say almost because I'd only ever heard that term in the video game Diablo two by blizzard, the makers of world of Warcraft, and also you know the world of sanctuary, which is where the abloh takes place a one of my all time favorite games just in case you haven't played it. It's amazing. There's a character named almost lives in the city of traveling call and he refers to himself in the third person and he sends you on and stuff. You. Know speak. To. Office. You have questions for homes, US and doubt in yourself. But that is neither here. Nor there one fun thing about Diablo's that as you would pick up various weapons and staffs and stuff, you would learn little terms that you wouldn't have learned elsewhere. So I learned a lot of vocabulary and history in playing the album to and it. Just, never looked up or missed to find out where his name came from. But feels now like it's kind of appropriate because or miss is as sort of ill defined miracle Goo. Different companies and different people will sell. We are in particular going to be talking about on new alchemies. ORMUZ. In this episode and a couple other on who elk meat products. Yeah. Onto alchemy was the booth that we saw out the consciously expo and they were selling this. But yeah, ormuz itself seems to at least as far as the mythos surrounding it goes seems to go back to ancient Egypt Cleopatra Bathed in what she called milk and so they hypothesize Oh was actually and that's what kept her so beautiful young, right they being alchemy I've seen at mentioned on other sites so. As, well, they'll also mention Manna from heaven. Ancient Hebrews described that that was actually Ormuz, which is weird because that's not milk but I guess it can be kind of a solid and a liquid form. So it's kind of like one of those placeholder terms like we know there was a thing called Ambrosia of the Gods. Okay. Well, now, I wanNA make a recipe and call it Ambro Asia of Youth Right Ruth Serum Lemba Bread Lennon this bread that's from Lord of the rings that's their that's their answer to Mana. Okay. Okay. But then you wonder, Oh, how do I make this? Like what is. This hour do the mystical mystical Brad Wonderful Miracle Bread. Yeah, and some of these sites will define. As being orbital's rearranged Mon-. Atomic elements which almost arm o r m e can me the the Connections or Mrs this product of the Al Chemical Process, and it's tied to the the secret of extending life in the whole orbital early rearranged monitoring element. So Amman atomic substance is one where the atoms are not touching each other essentially. More than they are. The person using the word. Sure of. Gas. It means like you know all of these individual atoms are floating free and they're not bonded to each other. So the idea here is that this is gold that has been monitoring -ly separated so that each individual particle just has one gold atom within it. Okay. Sure and it's supposed to be a white powder but nobody that we're GonNa talk about today is actually using gold or doesn't seem to be as far as we know or even claims to be as far as I can tell us gold to create the substance. Yeah. So yeah, the company on Alchemy I don't think ever claims. that it is gold nor to they use organised to stand for that weird thing as far as I know. But yeah, I mean if you try to Google or Miss, you will get a bunch of companies and people making this thing at their little recipes. Yeah. They all have special things to offer about their arm right so it seems like the basic format is you take some neutral water, but then you add a bit of a an alkaline solution. So usually I see sodium hydroxide lye and four onto alchemy they're adding magnesium hydroxide. So it's slightly less basic, but it's like a milk of. Magnesia the kind of substance that would be used to help you digestive problems and then other places they'll add a bit of Dead Sea salt or they'll add a bit of Frankencense or whatever it is. They're adding some extra little material in there that makes it their special formulation of ormuz. So as you mentioned, we're going to zero in on this company on Alchemy we've mentioned the word Alchemy and chemical a few times here case you haven't heard that term before it's this very old idea that you could make gold out of something that isn't gold now chemical mixture and now decker cain would. Say it. Now, it can be used sort of a little left of center that original definition it will be any magical creation from things that shouldn't add up what you end up with. Yes. So originally, alchemy was just chemistry before anybody had a really good handle on it, and then starting around the sixteen hundreds when we actually started to figure a few things out, we I mean humans alchemy just became kind of the last bastion of these people thought you could do all these mystical things like prolong life indefinitely or turn simple substances into gold of course, everybody wants to make gold out of nothing. That, we can ruin its value. That's right. Yeah. So we can flood the market

Bachelorette Fans Upset By Clare Crawley Poster
"Some Bachelorette fans are confused and a little pissed off to be honest. We know the show likes to play with our hearts but the poster for the new season is messing with our heads. It features bachelorette Clare Crawley. Some fans were upset pointing that it looks like the poster for the graduate. You guys remember that movie it's a movie about an older woman seducing younger man. Well, this is pissing people off because Clare's, of course, the oldest Bachelorette today at the age of thirty nine years old and they're saying what the hell like, why are you making her look like she's just this old woman she's thirty nine. Right I mean, I have to say when I saw the poster I live for a Pantsuit I thought she looked strong I thought she looked beautiful I thought she looked like a woman that was going after what she wanted felt like it was her time you know obviously doing seasons previously and just not finding her match so I get how people can. Be upset but you also could just be upset right I. Just don't think it was necessarily negative I don't think he's trying to I. Don't think he was trying to play on her age I think it was trying to kind of show an empowered woman that's like this is my time I'm going after what I want exactly like what Mrs Robinson did. Not people who aren't complaining about. The movie and if you haven't, you should 'cause it's fabulous La. Also like how do you know that Claire Wasn't in on the joke like if I was the first game bachelor on ABC, I would try to make a tongue in cheek joke about it. My poster would maybe be derived from something of that nature. I just think that Latin sorry twitter is the Latin word for outrage and there's just people that want to start a fire and it doesn't make any sense.
Midnight Moment 5 - Social Media - burst 1
"Greetings citations my fellow patriots. Welcome to the moment host by meetings. Something that is that notorious have been around for a very long time social media. It's no longer really social. We actually sat and looked at everything objectively of course what does it really become nothing more than ads base Mr and Mrs you who bragging about how good their is even though the snow that it's not a political sounding board for ninety percent of the world to bent their frustrations, their angst, their disdain for whichever party platform, they choose not to mention the actual ability for people to speak to each other. Now relies more on a personal device. Versus actually using your voice that said what the Hell's going to happen when y'all break both your hands can't use. Thumbs y'all going be Butte can't talk to anybody the art of speaking is obviously a dead form of communication. Everybody's got to be on their phone tablet computer email whatever you wanna call it or thumbs are what they used to speak with rather disappointing. Actually those of us in the generation X. Whatever you WANNA call still know how to write cursive still know how to pick up the phone. And call somebody still can write a letter. It's ship it off in the US. PS they're not against different story. The point that I'm really trying to get to is social media has no longer become been a social thing. It's one thing or another. It's nothing more than just a giant bent platform for everybody out there. God knows if you've got to sell something, put it up there online you can't reach people on television because quite frankly people are tired of watching three minutes of programming and fifteen minutes of. Sorry. Now. I can remember way back when watch program you got eight and a half minutes program three commercials that was it, and then back to your program, they filled up with entire thirty minutes spot with the program. But Hey, last time I tried to watch anything on television and had been neutered and chop down to the point that I felt like I was watching a spam program of nothing but ads By this, go get this.

So much of the actual definition of social you want to keep up with friends see what they post on facebook want to find. Love and all the wrong places plenty of hidden acquitted places to go there too. It's disheartening to be for somebody that grew up. Knowing how to write a letter to express feeling in a written word versus here let me throw this in an email and hope that you understand it. Sorry. His plane as a text on the screen. But it has no heart it has no feeling has no. Guts real rather. Harder related is now saying that you know we need to go back to stone tablets and you'll sign A. Bloody fingerprint but it's nice to actually be able to read something that was written by someone who took the time to lay out a nice. He's paper, grab a pen and actually right not. Doctors Chicken scratch. Let me throw this on here and making notation. Well, there you go. Doesn't work folks honestly I'd rather go back to media has manipulated and destroyed the ability for people to social. Unfortunately. As we've seen as of late. The politics involved across every social media platform is enough to make anybody puke. It's not a this is what we're doing to try and better the country were trying to implement this. We're looking to get this. We're going to abolish this. It's now this is my opponent and they're ugly and if I tell it to you enough times, you'll believe it to sorry guys but. Not going to be manipulated like that truly, and unfortunately, social media has now become a narcissist tool remedy relation as much as I am. Having to research topics for our broadcasts and our mid, I've always and saw and so forth individual conversations accordingly it's disgusting that every time you turn around, it's one thing or another being degraded demoralized dehumanized smeared from one side of the other. It's depressing truly what all that said I, leave it up to you folks to research find out for your own stuff. See what goes on. We think I'm blind. Love me no.

How Are You Intelligent
"You grew up from my understanding in nineteen fifties sixties Liverpool. So can post war, which was also pretty interesting time and Liverpool. Yeah ours born in Nineteen fifty. In Liverpool. And was it was a? Is a city that had been devastated and the second world. War. In the middle of the nineteenth century, Liverpool was the probably the most important port in the world something like sixty percent of world trade what through the port of Liverpool side of empire. Realizes at much high to the British empire and it was the main point of entry for all the goods that were coming from the southern states to feed the the Mills of Lancashire. It was the hydrogen industrial revolution. So it was a huge import export trade. It was the of departure to the United States and also to far-flung parts. The Empire.

That people got to see Believe it was in Seattle at least the Seattle Times covered it because they asked a number of transient on binary folk to talk about their impressions of it and and they. I will link in the description where to find this but again that's through the Seattle times and all of them had very like fairly positive memories of Mrs this is doubtfire and Missouri going into see the show and Ooh the reviews are not not happy so there are some like probably my favourite was just a very simple answer of why here why now easy money any reaction. My reaction was watching these moments and thinking. Wait who was in the room when that choice was made Yup and I and now when it goes in and even from this moment when it was in Seattle again I got to double check that but in the moments that these folks are able to watch watch the current production of it. There was a chance that a lot of changes have been made even from previews when previews happen. That's the point of previews is it is supposed to be as close to done as possible. And then if there are major things that need to happen they can tweak it a little so my hope for for it is they put it up and there are some major major major things the other thing that they can do. That is an easy fix. Even though this is different from what you've mentioned which is just scrapped. The whole project and I agree with that would be throwing a trans person literally just follows him around and says no bad stop that yeah. This is garbage. Entire Horace transpeople. Yes great chorus of Trans People just saying this is bad and this is not good. Yeah yeah and I think like recasting all of the other like the other characters. The sort of satellite characters in the movie as as transpeople people would be great. If at that bar. The person who likes she was down. Mrs doubtfire offer of drink is trans. I think that could actually be like no we as a community totally reject you and what you're doing with this. We will not take a drink from you. You need like Doc. Stop disrespecting we are yeah no and you know like that's the thing. Obviously you and I both work in theatre so we don't necessarily want to like you know there are real people that have put time and effort and money behind a production and there's always a chance that we could work with one of them in the future but I want to acknowledge that it's like all right. This says maybe not the best idea and I am still hopeful much like I was walking into the movie. I am hopeful that when it goes up and it does its thing that will have done the work. Yeah but I don't know if it will. I just think there's so much work to do view because it's like you have to address the trans-phobia but I think you also have to address its portrayal of women and I think you have to address the racist. Caricatures that Robin Williams does at times. And I think you have to address the way presents a homosexual couple. I just feel like once you've addressed all all of those things you have something that's no longer Mrs doubtfire which I say awesome but like then it's just like why don't you just do a play written by trans transportation like it'll be better I admittedly. I haven't googled. Who did the book the lyrics and the music for it but from what I understand it from what I've been hearing they're assumed to be suspen off? I could be wrong. I'll double check right now. Is We're talking but yeah I mean it's it's I do. Think like on the issue of work. I'd think work done and I think the I think work needs needs to be done. I think that The musical heathers is actually kind of a good example of that. Because and it's a it's a much different issue but I think when when I when I saw the movie heathers which was much much later in my life. I was struggling with these sort of blow up the school aspect of it because I grew up in the era of Columbine and then since then I've seen these school shootings happened in the news and all of that and it's just that school violence did not feel like something that could be funny to me anymore and I feel like when the musical came out it actually understood that and understood that our society has shifted in ways. Is that like a key punch line of this movie cannot be like. Oh you know we'll blow school or whatever it's it has to be something that it actually shows that were replaced. I feel like that musical actually did So I that that of of course is a different issue than a transphobic text. But I think it does sort of suggest like okay think realistically thickly about the material you have and the society. You're putting it into. Yeah so I'm looking at. Who wrote the Book Etcetera Etcetera So I don't know enough about John Farrell The British author and comedy Scriptwriter Okay and Kerry Kirkpatrick And again we always be wrong but at the same time. None of them openly. Id as transit on binary and it is a thing where unfortunately you kind of have to. If you're going to write about these things and or at the very least I don't want to commit to that I don't want to commit to you have to be in order to write about but at the same time it is all men on this team and I it had home and all white men so so I just I. Don't you have a lot more working against you in order for me to really trust. Yeah I think is what I think. That's more of what it is. Do I trust you to do the work and until I see the work I won't know but immediately I'm just like okay. Okay do we know. How do we know how to see? Did I mean I guess my question. The reason I ask that is because like these these people who are pushing MRS doubtfire. Are they just like. Oh well. You Know Tizi did super well. And I don't know if it has but like if it has oh Tutsi did superwealthy so clearly like there's just a minority of people who don't like this humor and most people do they're fine with it and so we'll just do it and make a buck off it or whatever mm-hmm well I will say The article that I saw which is admittedly from variety so you can take take utterly that but they mentioned specifically the tootsie musical based on the nineteen eighty. Two film was critically acclaimed but didn't hold up at the box office so again. That's not a Specif- against my sources variety. I don't know how well that holds up. Lack that is that is a take and honestly it did not last super long even though at one like I know that the the main character who played to see I didn't see it. I don't know the name. The the Tutsi is an actor that I really enjoyed so it is one of those things. I'm very happy that he wanted to Tony. But I'm very sad. He wanted Tony for that. Yeah I hear that so now that we now that we've effectively burned all of our bridges feeder community. And we're we've got a fiction collection coming out next week some poetry and maybe a comic so so let's say let's get to the answers. Let's get to the questions rather yeah I love it transphobic. Now you can answer this by making a noise you can put it on a one to ten and scale however you want to describe it just is Mrs Doubtfire transphobic. That come through because that was my guy I start art and my gun just means yes emphatically. Yes it's transphobic absolutely definitely on my end Eh. Excellent then we'll get nice fart sound effects. What I'm talking about this movie? Yeah Yeah it is. TRANSPHOBIC acted bones My answer is I'M GONNA give it a about an eight eight ten and say that he and More than I thought it would be more than I remembered. I Miss Remember this movie as being better than this. Who Yeah and wasn't enjoyable? I mean I pretty much already answered that but to express that how you will but I have only one fart gun to give no. It wasn't enjoyable at at all it. It's it's it was really sad. Actually I mean the roller coaster was from just like Oh. I don't like this to like this. Actually making me think of things I don't want to think about two two also feeling which you expressed which was i. I really am struggling with my love of this which I also had like. I WANNA be clear like I. I went into it with the exact same settings that you did which was just like. Oh this is the thing these fond memories of and now it is this just total monster and I am. I'm struggling with that. I the only thing I can say I can say can say with was. I'm sure this is what I connected with as a kid which was that the end note of like the family will come back together and there's many types of families and and they can all operate differently? Which is something that Robin William's character says although it doesn't seem to be something the movie actually believes it probably made me feel good growing up in a household where my parents clearly did not get along? I hear that and I do applaud it for not having the two of them get back together but at the same time I kiss movie no any anyone but them like and then he yells at her like. Oh and you let the judge do that to me. It's like yeah fucker Yeah Hell Yeah Fucker I. I would've done that too right like and if you and I wouldn't have hired because like any positive messaging that one might be able to dig out of this. This movie is poisoned by so much of it including the fact that like it is totally okay at even funny to poison the person. Your ex-wife ex-wife is dating so long as you're drunk when you do it and you know the Heimlich well enough. Yeah which also oh I know that. They stated in the beginning like Oh like she's going through the resume Oh you know the Cetera et Cetera. And of course. They're doing that as a way to to plant for later when he does do that that he knows the Heimlich and he knows all these links. CPR does he dunes a voice. Like I'm not saying voice. Actors can't honestly actors of all types like I know how to do CPR. I know how to do the Heimlich. But it's just like do I have have no problems believing that actors are actually very good at at CPR and maybe anything sort of medical. I have problems believing that this guy who were told is as a fuck up in like every other way knows that like he was like you know what I haven't paid my taxes in twenty years but I'm going to that first aid course like I I don't get it Ho okay. I think we've talked about everything we need to talk about with this movie. Thank you right so now that we've burned all of our.

"I mean I'm almost certain of it. You know it's it's the Steven Tyler of aerosmith thought thought that the lead singer of Motley crue was a woman at a Bar And then when he turned out to be the lead singer remotely crew decided to write a song about like that. Sort not great and you know like like its honestly era of heavy metal music like not aerosmith with Motley. crue is fascinating because there is that like whole sub-genre of folks that are like a manly men who wore makeup and did a bunch of other things. Were sort of like embracing femininity in a weird way. But we're also oddly misogynistic. But yeah we're not talking about that. We're talking about Steph. Papa's got a brand new bag is another one like there were a couple that I don't actually really impressed by. They literally found the era of Google. Any song that mentioned gender really at all and just figured jammed. And that's that's fine. I I was half expecting it. I don't know if it came out before the song or if it came after the song but I was just like all right Wednes- man I feel like a woman come in. I know I know there who owe the other the other big note that I wrote down was when they meet Mrs Says Doubtfire The Sun. Forget his name but Boy Child he says. Jeeze your big for lady you could play for the forty niners right. Of course. Yeah and then she had been that thing about. Oh well I did play European football okay. Okay soccer soccer right right that and he's Oh there's this one moment and it's equal parts. Brilliant is stupid is when the social worker comes home Sees Mrs Doubtfire and is essentially like and she and Mrs Doubtfire goes like. Oh yes my on. My brother Danu a new accidents. I've actually enjoying it. I like your versus more than I liked the movie. And so you know Mrs doubtfire brings her up. And and she added like as they're doing this Daniela's getting out of the MRS doubtfire attire. And just literally making as many puns and this is another moment. I don't know if This was Robin Williams. riffing as he is literally ripping off all of this like older women skin fat suit and like body. Things things like this is this is kind of like a weird. It's not like because of that because he's making all these jokes. There's so many puns. Yes so many tons like rapid fire. It's just ooh and then. He makes a Norman Bates reference Yes it's just like God fucking dammit everything. I mean the the the thing about that moment that I I did laugh at was after he gets that stuff off off and she wants tea or something because it's and so but she wants like Mrs Doubtfire to make your teeth so so he tries to get it all back on but then the mask pulls out the window and his run over by a garbage truck so his solution to this is to go to the kitchen without her seeing him do that and then stick his face into a cream pie and then like pop up and yes. We all remember that from the previews and and that's the solution. And I was like well. I don't like the messaging of this movie but as somebody who has been in tight spots before I've never depths my face into cream pie but I could certainly see me doing something equally as stupid. That was going to be my follow up question. Have I ever tastier cream pie. Yes have you ever. You mentioned being in these type of suggestions suggestion so okay I need like you know. I don't now desperately trying to see your children after your wife withheld them. After the divorce you had to create an older woman persona in order to do like you forget an assignment in school. So you see I thought you were GonNa GonNa say so you invent a female older than you. Then since you're gay brothers to create a fat suit for you so that you can further deceive of your teacher yes okay. No very clear about this. Never do that ever do that. The dipping of the face into the cream pie. Maybe any one thing doing it for two reasons not good. Who trying to think if there's anything else that needed to say from this? Oh fuck the reveal when the sun when the sun walks honestly that's what that's literally the last note I made because that's the moment I stopped taking notes So when it was happening as it was about to happen and I was like oh I do remember this. I did too and it was just like Ooh all of it is super painful. I I mean and that scene feels to me like the apex of all of the movies bathroom scenes and I and they're they're certainly trying to play it for laughs and they're certainly trying to to make it seem so tense because you know what are People GonNa think and But knowing today how many quote unquote bathroom bills are on the floors of state. senates all over the the country And how how that space is police. wrongly by TRANSPHOBIC. Legislators is this makes that moment it just destroys me. Yeah so that's the point of the movie completely. We lost me and I just like I literally got out of bed and just turned on the Messenger and started playing that and look to make sure there was nothing else that I needed to see like. Okay okay remember. This is standard fare. But yeah yeah exactly. Yeah I just the the the only thing I could say about that moot about that specific part That's not Going to just make me depressed. Is the urine looks really realistic. I guess it was really yellow like usually I just have water bottle and well. I think it also says that Robin Williams really needed to drink water. Yes yes exactly I do not care what Genitalia Ali had just please remain hydrated. It's important as none of our business but it is our business that you stay hydrated. Yes exactly But but what I think is interesting. What's really important about what you're saying and how to is? Is there moments in this movie like that. Where if you are anyone under the gigantic transgender umbrella of any see those moments like they are genuinely heartbreaking? Like the just on a level that I think is really hard to explain to. Maybe somebody who hasn't been there. It's it's that it's another moment where they're at the pool with Pierce Brosnan and Mrs doubtfire sitting at the bar and of course because it's Robin Williams under there He can't resist looking at the pretty girl who comes to the the bar. And of course through the MRS doubtfire makeup stares at her and when she orders neutering Robin Williams Liam's in a masculine his his masculine voice says I'll get it meaning. I'll get her drinking the way she looks at just such disgusting Asti Tocchet. That's just oh my God not to mention he is hitting on women get dressed as a older British woman but he's is hitting on women while actively trying to stop his ex wife from getting into any kind of a relationship with Pierce Brosnan incredibly true very good point and it's just like fuck you yes like I get that like and this is part of and it's tough because you don't actually see you don't see them actively hate one another but at the same time you don't really Kinda see why they clicked as characters who would have been in a relationship and because of that like her wanting to move on is healthy and him doing all of this so unfathomably unhealthy including but not limited to him trying to sabotage other relationship. which there's a certain base feeling feeling? I think that the producers writers were trying to go for that. It's like Oh you know if it was your ex regardless of how you feel you're going to know that you feel like you don't want to see anybody else it's just like like Oh man. Yeah and I know that I keep using that word. I don't mean to use that word for H.. One of my go-to like oof like who. It's very pro stocking in that sense like it sperry pro. Do whatever you can do because it's it all is in service of his masculinity like and I think it this movie thinks of masculinity is a very specific thing. It's being a father of of a family that has heterosexual Six gender But so whatever you do to serve that is fine At its it's just obsessive and I just I just want to be like okay. Who hurt whoever made this once upon a time and made you feel this way like it's it's really bad Do you think that because the author of this book is British and I don't know like is it fair to say that transgender center rights and recognition socially in in the. UK is that are they. Are they more regressive than here or there I mean so a there is a huge tradition of Men Andress being a source of comedy comedy. And there's like I think that there is a lot more nuanced especially in a British sense to that but at the same time it is still still absolutely a joke but that said also right. Now there's a podcast that I listen to called. What the Trans and they are primarily based in in Britain and so they talk with a lot of other transport and intersex folk and non binary folk About sort of the the state of Basically transparency in the UK and. Yeah there's there's a lot more virulent transphobia and like a lot more willingness to accept turf logic in a lot of their Like a lot of their government and a lot of the things that I've been hearing so it definitely is a thing at the same time I'm not from that culture. I'm just listening to a lot of other folks that are covering it. Yeah yeah I I think. That's that's why I mentioned. Just because in some of the non binary groups that I'm on facebook I see people who are from the UK commenting on on others pursue like are in the US getting their driver's license to say you know the gender is X.. And people in the UK saying Oh you know. I wish I could do that. Like I wish Sean you know. We had those kinds of legislative Shifts that would allow me to do something like that and and so it makes me think like okay. Will you know as a as a whole where is the kind of cultural moment there. But now I can't even really remember why I brought that up except to say it's like I'm I'm thinking about just sort of where this where this text ultimately came from and and of course that is also not to say like. Oh you know where we're just so so great in so progressive in our own country. That's not that's not true. I mean it's just I wonder what the struggle like. I think the the issues are different but the issues are still being had and it's just a matter of like what flavor of discrimination are. We feeling as far as anti translate. Yeah Yeah and honestly all the flavors are bad terrible they are they are all like the seed in which Pierce Brosnan is choking on the shrimp and Trans Phobia is the shrimp. That is choking all of us. I brought a dry. This is we are talking about adaptations as well. I know I mentioned that. This part of the reason that we're doing this now is because Mrs Doubtfire is going to open. I believe for previews in March on Broadway. Yes and it was gone. I was GONNA say as as I was watching the movie and thinking about that production. I figured out exactly how to fix that musical like it occurred to me like what like what the musical do in order to in order to to be a good Mrs doubtfire musical what you need to do Is You need to take the script as it is and you need to not do that script at all and just do something else.

"So okay the one thing I 'cause 'cause you're you mentioned before the yeah. I break the the sort of going into going deeper into the film and also talking about some of the other stuff ronald like this. This proposed musical. I the one thing that struck me that I did not know l. from just the opening credits of the film is this was a book before it wasn't movie I didn't even look into that. Okay I have the wikipedia page up and apparently the book was called Madame Doubtfire Known as alias Madame doubtfire it's written by an fine whose English And the plot of it seems to be basically the same. It was written in nineteen eighty-seven It received the Guardian Children's fiction prize and the Whitbread Children's Book Award which I don't know anything about either of those the basic plot of it seems to be the same Yeah the writer is an fine. I don't don't know much about what she's done. SORTA HA so. Yeah I mean I guess the one takeaway from that. That's is kind of interesting is that it was a kids book and We can probably talk about the Deep flaws in kind and that by by that you mean the the idea of a story like this being pretty much intended for children like being like Let's teach kids from a young age. That if a guy is dressing in a address than we it's it's for humor and we should make fun of him and It's gotta be for nefarious means. Yeah I mean in that that also dates back on the way I just shared something earlier talking about like like There was something going around. That had billy porter little acts billy Bush. A couple of other folks that are just in these amazing outfits. It's for the grammy's and it says like why does it look like every grammy winner and every grammy tend to eat. Looks like they're going to be like the next Batman Villain and someone responded with. Well it's because we grew up on media showing that all evil people are queer coded L.. And you know so. It is one of those things where there's a lot of bias and even during this period There there was a lot of bias in in that way. where it's like if we're going to show this we've gotTA show This character doesn't want to be an address we got to show that this character doesn't belong address etcetera etcetera. I don't know if I actually I think I moved into a completely different topic. But well worth exploring because I mean certainly certainly transphobia In in villains in comics while not not them being necessarily outrightly transplant. But like that that sort of trope of the the feminization or or Trans Ization of villains in in comics and how detrimental that is To Actual Trans People That's a that is a topic like that is worth exploring on its head. I mean that goes back to the joker I mean certainly even before that Ah but Joaquin El haven't seen that movie but like even going back to the jokers first. I appearance in comics. Like his whole thing is like. He's not a muscular villain like he does do feminine things like the Villain in. I mean this is a whole thing. But like the villain in The Maltese Falcon as yeah. Nice to meet with this is because for all media and just like just to put it out there and I I think we talked about it during our psycho episode. Pretty much all media. If you'RE GONNA show a queer coated person you can't show them in a relationship in this for for a very long time in most media You could you couldn't show them in a relationship and you could only show them as a villain so that this was a thing that it was specifically look dat by people as oh this is a a mark villainy squareness this femininity and men Right so the humor of Mrs Doubtfire then comes from Robin Williams being like no but I'm not a villain. I'm not doing something bad. Even though you're you're sort of coded voted to believe I even though he is absolutely the bad guy in every situation. Yeah exactly exactly I feel for him but he is absolutely wrong. Every in this movie totally is I want him to fail. Take away his fucking kids. I'm sorry yeah I'm sorry exactly he. It was obvious that like he was terrible from before the whole divorce. It's like when you so when your kid has a birthday. which is the opening sort of thing of the film and you decide like instead of just getting a cake in the presence and you'd like literally are just going to without consulting your wife bring home like what what she rightly calls the zoo bunch of animals and and like really messes up the place? That's a problem like jit problems. She's right to be upset about that. And so and I just that whole moment. Because that's the moment in the film that ultimately Spurs on her saying I want a divorce which also strikes me as a little unbelievable in the sense that like? It's probably not just that one moment. I would imagine if this is indicative of his behavior. There's been a bunch of these things and this is probably the latest thing and so it's it's probably not just because the birthday party went this way but because he's been this class a fuck up and and she like she never states anything specific and I think that's because if we as an audience here a laundry list of all the bad things that he's done I think that even then like a a lot of people will give a man the benefit of the doubt so even if we did hear that it would be fine but I think a lot of other people in the audience. It'd be like maybe maybe this is is indicative of other behavior but we it's again this movie doesn't this movie does a very good job of almost like I don't want to go as far as to say gas lights issue but it tells you certain information so that you feel a certain way. But they don't feel completely that way and so when they do take a u-turn they do make the character a completely different of like pretty much almost out of nowhere character shift. It doesn't feel completely aww character. It's just sort of like okay and I actually would go as far as to say. There's a gas leading going on specifically in the scene where Robin Williams before four. He invents the disguise method of doing this has his kids over to the apartment that he's rented and it's it it looks Kinda not great and they're all sitting around the table like eating dinner and mom has showed up what he says an hour early and the kids kids. They're they're starting to get up and like the way in which he kind of yells at them in. That moment is really uncertain unsettling for me but the movie kind of doesn't really want us to remember that I mean what he says. You're my kids to God damn it and I'm just oh okay but then like only only minutes later when the mom comes in it's sort of played for a little bit of a joke and then we get to see how excited these kids are At spending more time with dad as if that moment just wasn't as emotionally violent as it was and I get the content that he's just very passionate he's very upset. This is a thing that's like things are happening is reaching a boiling point. The and honestly I forgot how I don't say how well but how I'll say how. Well how well. It does pepper in a a lot of dramatic moments in the beginning as much as there is absurd humor in its sees. He's hiring the entire Barnyard to come out and they're like it's ridiculous weird homer Simpson moments. There's also a lot of these moments of just real sadness and real like you really do feel for both parents appearance in a lot of different ways and it is interesting. It's just then. He specifically tricks his ex wife into hiring him rest. They're fucking Marigny. which I also like that I mean by like I am further? They're traumatized by the that he feels. This must mean he needs to gender flipper genders. Because it's like well. There can't be a male nanny lakes thanks got to invent a woman do it only one at like twelve. Yeah exactly and I'm sorry that I'm kind of like jumping on. There is a like I went into this. I really want people listening to understand. I went into this wanting to love of this movie. All over again wanting to come out the other side and say you know what it wasn't that bad y'all it could have been a lot worse and it's just then I think the second phone call he makes he's he's basically like amping her up to think that there is no good choices so that when he comes up with the good choice she picks six that choice but at one point he says hold on. I wrote it down so I'm GonNa go find it Data is very humorous. Ask No of. We've moved beyond their. I'm so close. Oh here we go there. He's a you're telling me about the children all you have ooh I'm sorry. I don't work with the males because they used to be one right and then the sound of disgust from the life as well no. It's just that that was the first moment I think in this movement is movie where my heart truly like shattered because it had been breaking as I've been watching this but then when it came to that it became really really clear that this movie is setting up a boundary and it saying on this side of the boundary is fun gender. Play on the other side of that is actual Trans people who are disgusting in the movie and I hate that And I do know many trans people in the in various forms of Caring of youth like whether they be nannies unease or whether they be teachers whether they be and it's just man I did not like I didn't sign up for this I it did. I signed up for it to really WANNA hit life. Watch the curse of the Queer Wolf I I know I should have just watched a bunch of Shiro originally going to do you could add sheer Alexandros. It's my biggest regret so yeah like so. There's there are a lot of moments of that and then the other thing the other big thing thing I want to talk about is the use of music. Yes yes please. Let's talk about that. There is no subtlety in this soundtrack. nope breath like the ones that I wrote down and there's some that I didn't even write down because I just I mentioned this to you earlier off off Mike I just. At a certain point I stopped taking taking notes and just played a video game while it was on. I was just like all right very smart. I would say if you WanNa Really Watch Mrs Doubtfire. Just play the Messenger. It's a great game anything to do nothing to do with Mrs Doubtfire. But it's just like no I just want people to play Messenger uh-huh but yeah so luck. BE A lady. Tonight is one that I wrote down dude. Looks like a lady so that one is the one that that like real like I was just like. Oh you're really going okay It actually looked up the origins of that Song After which is also pretty horrific..

"Idea that this man is tricking this woman into hiring him to watch their kids because she didn't want him around at all in her life right right right exactly and what's interesting about Miranda. Her name is and I didn't think I decided I would google it while while you're talking so I have all the names. Now it's fairly Robin Williams. Is Daniel Hillard which I mean. These are things that I totally forgotten and I watched this last night. So Miranda at the beginning of the movie is Were meant to think that she's doing very while in her job. It's corporate job. She's doing very well at it. She dresses actually in ways. That are traditionally construed as masculine. She has kind of the Blazer and the colored shirt and the slacks by the end of the film she's much more back in her traditionally feminine A tire in a traditionally feminine Ro Role It seems like now I've given up on the job thing I realize what's really important and it's let me fill all in this. Let me let me go back to this role that I was meant for because now I understand I was meant for so for her. Like the. If we want to even call it like sub-conscious Senator Senator now gender player whatever That's that's bad. Because that took her away for motherhood but for Robin Williams conscious gender play is just necessary because the world is so hard on him as a shitty father that he has to go to this extent to just be like like goofy and adorable and get his kids back. 'cause I took note of it. There was actually a joke that I thought was actually very transgressive. That was just a throwaway joke that nobody myself included remembered where. She's drinking a Cappuccino when she's waiting for Pierce Brosnan The first time we see Pierce Brosnan and she's got a little milk mustache. Yeah just you talking about her in this like what we look at as masculine attire for business. It's just like Oh yeah. They really like as much as they played up. Oh it's a manageress. They also did play a lot of these like roles for her in a more more subtle way and. I don't think that that was completely intentional. I don't know that they actually. I don't want to give the movie that much credit to say like. Oh you were like Oh. She's got a mustache now But which honestly if they did and they leaned into and she just kept drinking things and getting a moustache. I I think I would have been into. Yeah I mean because at the end of the day like she's kind of who I'm rooting for like I'm not really reading for for Dillard Dillard Hillard Hillard department store. I'm always rooting for DILLARD's be too. Yeah it's hard out there for malls anyway. Yeah it's it's true. I I feel feel like I guess I don't. I'm struggling with with sort of the ultimate message behind that because it seemed like there were moments elements where this this movie very much wants to show that like the natural course of events. If you do it right we'll take you into your traditional gender role because Mrs Doubtfire. It is very clear. This whole movie depends on US knowing thing that is not where Daniel Hillard is supposed to be Except although at the end I mean he does find success on the TV show as her but which is kind of an interesting wrench in that But but like even when referring to the to Hellers brother played by heavy fire scene. And which let me say Yeah Harvey Firestone Pristine is the right choice but an interesting choice as well. Because it's like you know if you know Harvey firestone if you know New York theater you know. Absolutely like he's a gay icon he's a queer icon so it's a guest okay. Absolutely he is but at the same time like he gives off an energy. That is very not what you expect from. A stereotypical typical game man. And so they pair him up with a very like FEM partner who they refer to as Aunt Jack Right. It's right. Please things that for him which struck me as interesting because at one in one way it's gender play but in another way sexuality why is it keeps it like homeless or heterosexual which is strange. Because of course it's not because it's not heterosexual not right. Yeah because Heterosexual I don't mean this was I'm not going to. I am never ever ever again going to make the distinction action of like the the the Defense of Oh overtime but at the same time like yeah. That was a thing that movies were saying in the nineties. Was this idea of like. Oh they're just like straight couples. Yes yeah exactly. I felt exactly the same way about that. I mean it's it's as if an yeah. Mrs Doubtfire is not the only text to do this of the nineties to sort of say to people you see like gay people. Are there totally safe. But are they safe. But they're they're also not people who are GONNA take center stage. Don't worry like the the star is still still like very hetero even when doing you know something that one might perceive as queer that that starts still in. It is in pursuit of heterosexuality. Don't worry about that. which is makes me very uncomfortable? This haning I we'll say Harvey Fierstein had and it was more just him and his reaction got one of the only real big laughs out of me. This rewatch which which is when Jack comes to them and says I need you to make me a woman and they just imp race hat. Actually I kind of love that my favorite line was in that moment. Where where Robin Williams is going through that like a horrendous This this like impressions doing and at the he asked for Joan Collins and he's just like I don't think I have the energy that that makes sense so yeah like that we're moments like that. I do wonder for some of that stuff. How much of it was Improv? I don't I don't know but I feel like especially like that moment like there are a couple that I think that they just said like. Hey we're gonNA either dress you up a certain way and then we're going to let you go or Like that one in the moment when he's at The was it the Bank of the the the the job. Place the place to get a job Bob and like the social worker And he's just riffing and specifically the way it's cut the way it moves like there's there's a certain energy you can tell. The director will allow actors to just riff and Christopher Super Columbus is directed these kinds of movies before like he directly kinds of movies after. Sort of these like mass-market comedies. And I think he's probably accustomed to be like. Oh Yeah Robin Williams. Yeah just let's do. Sixty takes doing random impressions will use ten of them. Get like two or three good takes of the stuff that's written and then you just do your thing. Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly. which in those impressions like we should also talk about? How like some of them are rather racist? I would say they like well. No no no no really doesn't like just that moment where I think think I the first costume frank has brother and Jack put him in. Oh I guess she's Latina Tina. Yeah I don't know if that's supposed to be making fun of a specific person but Ooh met is not a person Robin Williams should be no not at all not at all. ooh So I mean I guess like if there is if there is is like silver lining and I mean the word silver lining in the most gallows humor of ways it is. This movie also gets to be sexist existed racist so it's really kind of everything and homophobic and it's wise even though he does portray gay couple. This is true. Yeah I mean it man this this move so I tell you what we're reaching the point where it's a good idea to take an ad break so we're GonNa take a quick break and then when we come back we'll talk a little bit more about we'll we'll go a little bit deeper into the movie as well talk about some other moments that we enjoy but we're also GONNA talk about the potential worries that we might have about the Broadway show coming.
"mrs it" Discussed on Is It Transphobic Podcast
"Hello my name is Ashley. Lauren Rogers I am the Creator and producer served transphobic podcast. I use she her and they then pronouns and today I'm being joined by me Jonathan Election Dramas. I am here I I use the pronouns and I'm slightly traumatized because MRS doubtfire. Yeah this is This is a whole show. This is a whole movie so I'm curious did you watch Mrs Doubtfire when when you were growing up like. Is this a thing that you saw in the theaters or like VHS. So that's the scary thing. I watched it as a kid. Many many many many many times. I loved this movie as as a child and I have no idea why I mean. Well I actually have. We given that some thought so we can talk about that as we move on but I rented it from Gemstone video in Knoxville Tennessee on VHS. I watched it on television. Whatever it was on television and I Yeah I remember seeing it multiple times Not In the theaters. But it's because I was ten when it came out but Later on but only shortly later on watching it watched a quite a bit. Yeah Yeah I honestly. I'm not sure if I saw it in the theaters but I definitely watched a lot. Growing up I thought it was the funniest thing. I loved it. I loved all of the characters and so yeah it was very weird now having to sit down and say to myself. Do I actually like because this really glad to hear you say that you also liked it it makes me feel like I was just watching this thing and I was feeling just so bad bad I just how could I have not seen this but I guess you know we were. We were young and we missed a few things. Yeah well we'll and it's an interesting thing now because now I was watching it and I kind of was bored. Yeah like it wasn't even that it was like offensive or I was angry. I mean you know I guess it is a lot of ways offensive but at the same time. It's just like Manna comedy. Just wasn't there. Literally the comedy is his man and address yes and and I did not. I did not find myself laughing and I really do absolutely remember birther like finding it hysterical. Once upon a time but yeah. You're you're absolutely right like that was the whole gig as we dive into this movie. I had sort of a question question just sort of starting off which is when we refer to Mrs Doubtfire the character. What pronouns should we us? I think because Mrs Doubtfire is a character that is being portrayed by Robin William's character man. Yeah it's it's character and character. I think it's okay to refer to the character using she her but right alternately again like she is a character And it's like Oh man I think admittedly like I. I am okay with however we want to refer to to Mrs Doubtfire as a character Do you have strong feelings one way or another you know. It's it's weird because because I feel like as I was talking about her I actually found myself using he him pronouns just because I was is like no this is not like a this is not someone's actual identity. This is a man who is absolutely Louis just in a in a costume and lake. But I also like I'm open to like she her or feels natural as well like for for Mrs Doubtfire so I'm not sure well and and I think I think so much of it is that yeah. Let's let's stated stated very clearly. This is not a a movie about someone who is learning to love themselves as a trans person. This is a literal man in address. Who is deceiving his wife or his ex wife to make sure that he has time with his children is literally everything that is just fucking boring about? Yeah like I feel like Ricky base watch this and was like that's my stance on trans stuff and I'm like no. That's that's not okay. I feel like lots of Transphobia is sort of based around this this exact idea. It's like everybody just watch MRS doubtfire and go. Oh yeah that's how translates works. Because it's not at all how it works. I mean it's it's so so far it's insulting. It's this idea that it's all people who are just trying to infiltrate be sneaky to to like serve. Serves some other goal that has nothing to do with personal identity. That's awful yeah well let me let me ask this. Let's kind of shifted a little bit so we know like I think. I'm uncomfortable kind of referring to Mrs doubtfire because Mrs Doubtfire is a character becomes a character that Robin Williams's character. What's his name? We don't even know he can. Billy Batson billy like what's but creates and then kind of stumbles his way into create a children's show with that character so the character lives on right but it is a thing that like so I I I'm fine with whatever Pronoun we WANNA use for doubtfire That said is there a world where a man in address this idea like first off. Let's define that. What is the man an address trump? Like what is that. I think it's like a question I mean I think that it's it's certainly something that was quote unquote funny or used for humor. Prior to Mrs Doubtfire like Mrs Doubtfire. It did not invent that. I mean you know the reason we're supposed to laugh at corporal. Klinger is because it's an address In so oh because it's also not drag either like especially not in this context. I think like drag. It's not like one it's dragged people are in on the fact that it's dragged like this is specifically to achieve An and that depends on certain parties. Not Finding out that this is a man address. So what is the man address. I mean I think whenever it started and I don't know what it what it started with it goes back to ancient Greeks playing with gender under I don't know but initially I'm sure it's something were meant to sort of laugh at and then Mrs doubtfire take that and it's like okay. We can still laugh at it but there's a really like quote unquote wholesome idea behind it. Which is just a dad who wants his kids kids back and that makes it more awful? Yeah actually I think so much of this. The man in address as a trope as a thing that people go to both like specifically for comedy is reliant on the fact that the man doesn't want to be an address And that he's doing it for a reason as opposed to just wanting to wear a dress like I I want to affirm men want two addresses. Yes please do Shirt create more media. where straight servicemen? Just wear dresses Graham Star Trek. The next generation did that for a little while and they've got that Unisex like all of their clothing is Unisex Yeah But it is a thing where and this has been like. It's almost ageless. This idea of deriving comedy from The idea that that is a man that is a man wearing address and that therefore his funny and yeah. I'm here for comedy that is inclusive of men who want to wear dresses and I am very against the idea that Like we should in some way they say like Oh man wearing addresses just bad because it's like no that's how a lot of like that's how a lot of early transport like myself included kind of experimented and figured it out like okay. Oh okay like yeah this this is actually kinda great. I like this. This is me and then you learned from there and then you figure things out so I more than anything else I wanted. Go on this tangent to make sure that we're sort of stating just because a man is wearing address does not mean it's funny does not mean that it's bad is that they are less than in any way shape you perform and I think that's where a lot of that man and address humor comes from. Yeah you're super super super right and as we're talking about it I mean I'll just say that that as a child like trying on my mom's dresses was really important for me to do and for me. It was about like feeling willingly clothing. And and feeling the feeling of you know this this object that I wasn't supposed to really identify with but yet I I did I mean that that was really really important to my development so so absolutely one hundred percent with you there I I think that when we talk about the man and address gag as opposed to men and dresses which can have a variety of Significance of but the man address gag being a joke. I think actually has more to do. I mean it certainly transphobic phobic but it has to do with also just viewing women and feminine things as less than because I feel like in addition into being transphobic Mrs Doubtfire. The movie is heavily. Sexist I mean. We don't even get to the dress part until a ways in that actually surprised me how long it took us to get to that dress because up until then every woman we meet is like frigid or like not not fun or just somehow neglectful of family and love and you know the only the only woman in who are a little bit outside of that are the two female kids but even the older of the two is having moments where she starting to like a little calder. And like it's it's really this. This movie has a huge. Like woman respects the problem. I think I think just the idea of character in general in this movie. It almost feels like they didn't know what they wanted from. The characters characters who the characters were and in some ways like it actually in some ways it kind of worked. Because I didn't ever fully hate the mother. Mother hates Pierce Brosnan. Even like there's a lot of things that like by the end it's like yeah these two characters spoilers for Mrs Doubtfire Robin Williams. His ex wife shouldn't get back together right at all at all. She's right says is right. Yeah he's been terrible and the only thing Mrs doubtfire proves when he puts outfit is that he knew all along what can do in order to keep this family together like as soon as you put the Mrs doubtfire things like. Oh I guess I should cook healthy food and like you could have done that before for you could have easily opened up a cookbook buddy. Yes because it did it and okay and so she'll must switches immediately the second that they are divorced and she's there to pick up the kids and yes she drop them off in our late and she's there an hour early and she's having a hard time because you know she's still like the two of them. Were both getting to understand this whole like all right. Well we gotta do a bunch of other like th I it. It up ended both of their lives and a lot of ways put she is just this unrepentant. Just like A- are they. Why aren't they ready at? Come on come on. Oh this place looks nice. It's just like fuck you I get it I get it like. I've never gone through a divorce. I don't know what it's it's like. I don't know how the relationships like I. It's not a thing I have felt myself but at the same time it's just like wow the the producers really wanted us to immediately radiantly like understand at first and then hate her and then kind of like ultimately we had to get on board with the.

"You guys ever think that. Like of all the crazy steps you guys had to take to get to the end goal which I assume was being in. WB champion all kinds of stuff. Did you ever think that the reality TV show thing thing would be a part of the journey. No no I said Once I got done with the real world and I got done with the five challenges I did. I said I'm never doing reality again. Dan Briggs back in the day In two thousand when you're on a reality show when you come to L. A. You are nothing you are nobody you were hack. Yeah and you shouldn't be on on TV and everyone hated you. Yep and so you know that's kind of the mentality I had through reality and then going through. WWe You kind of try to almost. Get not not. Get rid of the stigma. Because I was always a person that I was proud of where I came from I was proud of being on the real world proud of being on the challenges no matter what anyone said And being a wwe superstar Yukon venturing away. I felt like I was elevating myself doing the dream that I wanted to do. And we actually got offered You know to do a reality show about four years ago And we said no well because it was one of those things like I still have that stigma and then I then we started sitting down and we started talking about it. We are like look. Everything's a reality show. Nowadays facebook instagram twitter. The biggest stars in the world bashing the wrong. You know what they're doing. It's not only that. But the Rock Kevin Hart. I know exactly what they're doing when they're doing. They're all over instagram. They're they're they're instagram. is the reality show And so oh I love reality show.

Yeah this is why I love this show Doing this show in finding this stuff out because I I would out of assumed that you grew up as a high school wrestler. No and the MS was a joke thing. You didn't high school and college narrowly when the real world and you did this thing thing and that's not even the case at all now. You had one little window of opportunity after having the spotlight shines on you and you took it and you ran and that's bonkers jonkers stories bonkers right well you know. It's funny like when I went onto the real world then on our on the challenges I was like all right. How can I get? WWe To notice me. Yeah so I would. I would make shirts and hats and on every challenge by the way I was the reason that no one was allowed to do this anymore because for three seasons I would bring shirts and everyone would wear my shirts and not the colors that they were supposed to wear for their teams and everyone supported me like in. That's rare by the way whenever you're on a show and everyone usually gets jealous like oh I wanna be the center attention. I want this. Everyone that was on. Those challenges would wear my shirts shirts. They were supportive of me becoming. WWe superstar we always thought was really really cool them and MTV. Gave me my start and allowed me to do that which I did open door for wwe. I tried out for tough enough and tough enough. Wouldn't let me do it when I was on. MTV which is something that a lot of people don't know about route. So I tried out for the second season tough enough and they said you can't you can't try out because you're on. MTV already contractual obligation. Then you weren't allowed to be on three different shows. You had to be on one show that was it. That was all you're allowed to do and so then finally tough enough went under the CW. And I was like can I try out now. And they're like yeah. You can try out so I tried out for tough enough. which if the winner gets A? WW contract didn't win but impressed the exact so much that they gave me a developmental. It contract to go to deep south wrestling in McDonough Georgia. Wow and then. Six months later I was in Louisville at Ohio valley wrestling by the way at deep south wrestling.

Whatever or a celebrity or well known or whatever but what everyone forgets about is there's a lot of frequent work that goes into it? You know a lot of work. I mean that's like you guys are stories both are equally inspiring and and crazy in bonkers and is just amazing. So thank you for sharing that that was yeah that was dope. I do want to talk about your show. Tell me about I think you just got the show. That's exactly what the show is. I mean it's MS and Mrs it's on the USA network Wednesdays at ten PM immediately following an exte- on the network and we love it. It's one of those shows that we just. We laugh when whenever we do it. Yeah we can analyzed at each other. Yeah and it brought my whole family together because be on the road for almost fourteen years. I've never seen so many things that we missed. You know My sister had kids like marriages and the parties. And all those big things in life you know only Christmas would be on the road so this is great because I get to see I mean my mom is nuts but it's my dad Who you will get to get to know a lot on season to this this season to my dad you know he I go dad?

What more what is more important than your grandchild? What she can't do anything like she's just laying there you know like because do it when you guys are filming and we can all do it then and I'm like so? My Dad loves the show tonight. Her mom was a show. It's brought our family together really. Yeah it really did. A lot of people It kind of pushes away families our family it is brought together and has made us so much closer. That's because that is definitely not the norm when it comes to reality and we get to be where kids I can be with both of them because we're filming home so it's great to be on the road which I miss being on the road also. Yeah but at at the same time you know this is great shows not about like drama either. It's more about comedy and our drama is filled with just laughter. After because that's kind of it really.

Like what you gotta be kidding me but yeah back in our day you know we just had that and people would try out like people would come out like like there was like sixty thousand people for macy's and trying out so the way I had it was I was in data guy. I was enjoying college. I wasn't really enjoying the classes I was enjoying join everything else and I I saw it on TV and it was like try out for the real world. That's like I want to try out. Yeah everyone made fun of me. Everyone's like you're gonNA move good. How you you would stand you out from all these people like? I don't know I remember putting on I I would always have a camera with me and it was one of those. VHS kind of cameras and the way you would add it was to VCR's together and you'd put the wires in connect the wires and you press play and record in. That's how I edited my my my audition tate. Yeah and so I sending the audition tape. Everyone made fun of me at my fraternity. But they were supportive. You know. But they're they're kinda bussing my you know whatever and so they So then they called. Wait hold on. What was on your your audition video? Oh just I would videotape all of our parties. Okay me sitting down just talking to them saying like who I am Just a little bit about myself. You know that Kinda thing but had the MS made an appearance of the MS the MS debuted on on on the real world Becca York season ten so I did. I did the audition tape. And they must have liked it because they sent this. They called me and said. Hey We'd like you to fill out this application. Sure thinking an application would be one page to page fifty page application asking everything and anything about my life filled the whole thing out and once I filled that out one of my buddies is like dude. I WANNA try out so bad now. One of the people that was like dude. I don't know you can't believe you're trying out. Yeah I want to try out is like well. They're doing an open casting call in Detroit. I'll go with you. So we drove up the Detroit and we went to the open casting call and this time the you know there are thousands upon thousands. We waited in line. Four o'clock morning Detroit. It was like you know I think it was during the winter so it was freezing using cold and we make it up into these little group. It's like ten people in a group and they just ask you questions you know and I I answer the question and ended up happening where I made it to the next round again so I had to do another fifty page application the same fifty fifty page application. I just did but my friend had to wait for me. Because he didn't make it to that next round so then the next round for that was I had a video camera. That was videotaping me. I had them on speakerphone and I had to look into the camera while answering all the questions they would ask me and so I did that and these were the days as before a camera phone people by the way so did that twice just to abuse one two thousand okay and so then I was twenty two years old and so then did those two and then I did in in person interviewed in an personnel view is in Detroit so went back up to Detroit drove up it was like four hour drive and Before my interview. You're going to wait a little bit so I sat down with like ten girls that were going to their prom or something like that and I was just hanging. I didn't never met these people before what's going on. What's going on over here and just started sitting down talking to him not thinking that? Wow this looks really good when you know. The producer comes down literally goes wait. How did you meet these people? I met him and it ended up happening. where I I I went up to the interview and I was always always like. Why are people always crying on these shows? Like your honor show. You're having fine like you're in a house. That was the first time I realized. Wow now I get get why people cry on TV like how because they get you like the questions that they ask you know Kinda get deep seated and you go. Whoa like you really find find find out about yourself and so after I was driving home I was like wow like this would be a great show for me because it really kind of opened me up and Kinda and found some issues that I didn't even know I had so then got to Back to my people and went onto a casting special once I did the casting special This is the first time that they would have The people from real world and road rules and it was like twenty eight people in Palm Palm Springs was the first time in only time they would ever do this three the days and we would literally just be living like you would on the real world or road rules and you don't know what show you're going to be on your show you're GonNa get on a show. Are they uh-huh they're only owning it all again. They're filming everything and they have little Things that we would do Just to get to know you how you do on the show and then finally Out of the twenty eight people I I made it onto one of the shows. Yeah so this was three months. He told me I was tell anyone not even my parents. Didn't wow am I'm like my parents are like Whoa. You're going back to school. No I'm going to do this thing. Yeah whoa where and I'm like. I can't tell you anything because by the way my but my parents are big mouth and we know their big mouths and I didn't want to ruin this opportunity like this is something that I wanted to do and I have the opportunity to do it. Yeah this was crazy like I'm going to be on the real world like the one of the biggest shows on TV. At the time I get to do it whether it was rural the rural. I didn't know I flew to New York. First time flying in Newark ever went stayed in. There's a hotel in Stanton Island. The gimme a pager and they said Hey we're gonNA page you when we paid you. You need to call the number and we'll tell you what you're gonNA do next and I'm like what okay so I'm sitting there waiting. I'm thinking like there's cameras in the room. I don't know what's happening. You know what I mean so finally we are your parents like this. Sounds like a colt and no one could have certain parents. Let me do kind of whatever the hell like. They they knew like I'm I'm a good kid and I. They knew that I just go after things. Yeah and so they just thought it was one of the things that I was going after. Yeah and so went there and Yeah I got a page that said meet on this ferry. You're you might be one of your key cast members there we don't know so I'm standing there and I see one of the people on the casting special go. I guess we're roommates. Yeah then it says you need to go to six thirty to Hudson. So I'm like six hundred thousand either. RV is going to be there. And I'm on the road. Rules or House House is going to be there. And I'm on the real world and get to the house and honestly there was like four of us there and we're like are we on the road. We still don't know this really happening. Like what's going going on like the way they edit. It was amazing like we were. We had no idea if we're on the real world still we're like really. Is this the house we pick our bed or is there going to be an RV pulling up and then we have to fight for it or something like what's going on. Yeah and finally. I realized that I was one of the cast members on the real world back to New York and I was like I couldn't believe it and the way the MS came about was when I was on the real world. I was the outcast. Nobody really like. This is the first time that I've ever been an outcast. Like I've usually am able to adapt to whatever situation I need to adapt. I'm pretty good at being a chameleon and kind of adapting to my environment. But this one was different and I'm loud obnoxious noxious and sometimes I rub people. The wrong way rubbed everyone the wrong way in my in my household and so it took a long time to where I was like everyone just it felt like I was kept on. I'm getting picked on and picked on not bullied but it was just one of those things like I just. Nobody liked me. Yeah so I just created this character called the MS where I didn't care what people thought anymore and I was just GonNa say and do whatever the hell I wanted whenever I wanted and the MS was and it was the Ms. It wasn't Mike and ended up happening. Where the MS is got more respect and light better than Mike did on the show and the cast members and the MS was my outlet to basically kind of get in with my roommates in them to kind of learn who I am and what? It was almost like a self preservation down tactic. I guess you can say for sure created this alter ego because you're feeling ostracized. Yeah and not only that but it's a different environment. I'm in New York City from Parma. I'm Ohio like I've never ventured out there. And then and then not only that like you have cameras on you all the time. Whenever I wanted to leave I had to call the bat phone? Yeah we had a thing called the a bat phone where you call up and beg. Hey I'm leaving all right. Give us ten minutes. We're GONNA come with you and we're and you have cameras just walking right and you can't tell anyone on. The rule is a man as commercial. That's that's through. We have to make up these things where we commercials. It's funny talking about it because you don't is beyond the misses. The first person I met when I came to La Tuition. And then I got. I thought thought he was like like really annoying. And then I got to To meet Mike and I was like. Wow this guy's Freddie cool but then he goes back into MS Oh my goodness I flip on and off. Yeah I flip it on and off. It's kind of like a a thing that like so when I got off the real world. They like like everyone wanted them is. And by the way the MS on the real world one episode twenty two episodes. I remember that episode so vivid amazing a lot. A lot of people did like from that episode on. I was no longer Mike. I was the MS do them is do the MS do them as do the MS and then I would do all these challenges where I was like. You know what I'm going to turn this into reality I moved to I. I never forget like sitting back in Parma Ohio coming back from the real world and looking in the mirror and saying well what do you want to do with your life. What do you want to do now and I never forget? There was like on my shelf like a rock. The Rock like action figure. Oh yeah that was like. I'm going to become a w superstar and you can only imagine. Imagine when you tell your parents you're going to be a WPRO back to Miami of Ohio. Yeah you know. And so My parents didn't want me to do it like a lot of people. Were laughing at me because it's like I wasn't six five. Yeah I was in three hundred pounds of pure solid muscle. But I was going to do it so I moved to. La Founder independent wrestling. School out. There I out here and then I went to Improv. Oh classes acting classes because I wanted to make sure I had all the tools that I needed to make sure that I could be a success. And then I got like a Dietitian Asian. I had a person training me to work out so I was working out properly so I wanted to make sure I had everything in place to win. You know it's luck is win opportunity thirty in preparation meat and I wanted to be prepared as I possibly could for that opportunity. Were you a wrestler. But did you rest school now. We're like she did do nothing like that. I play basketball. Football played all the sports. Every sport. There is But I never I was never never like amazing.

This was not not working very well to my benefit. Our thinking. This'll be fun. Oh this that she was not having it so we ended up staying in that parking lot and talking for like two hours and I'll never forget leaving that conversation thinking if I could only find a girl like this Everything would be perfect. It'd be great flew back to La and went to Barnes and noble unlike was looking for a French book to learn how to speak French by the way she didn't speak much English but just didn't know like the vibe in here some of the things that she said I was just like I was wild. I was floored. Thanks thirteen years later. He does not speak French. Yeah still still worked out for your English. This is amazing. All right okay. So that's an amazing story. But like I wanNA know how you got from where you came from from to that interview or you met him the first time. Well I used to watch the show with my friends back home and you know every year they would do the surge urge and I remember them telling him as you should try out and I was like I can't go over there Eric Angle to L. A.. I'm in Montreal Canada. You know when you're younger you're in the different country tree. You don't speak the language this is one of the biggest company in the world where you have to be able to grab a microphone. Speak the live crowd. No joke you know so I was like guys is this is just crazy but the The just kept going and they did a video of me Talking the camera they they were holding signs Audition I have coupons knows. I did a few takes. This is low. They put it together and send it to Stamford Connecticut. got a phone call back from the casting department and the asked me to come to la condition. And I was like wait. Wait wait did. Wasn't there a story where you You couldn't be from Montreal but you could be like from New Brunswick or something like that. Because the diva search at the time you could win a quarter million dollars. Yeah so Quebec is like it's different government. It's separate than Canada so Quebec cannot be lake part of it Excluded so what I did is windy called me. I called like five minutes after I call my mom. I said listen.

We have to be at the driver's license. DMV and in and you driver's license would any address from there and a lot of my family live over there. So Oh I was like. How far is this Dr? It's eight hours. Yeah so she drove eight hours after hearing this phone call and was like I know in by the way she did this like i. I think it's so amazing that like you're from Montreal. You don't speak English and you see an opportunity and even though you're not allowed to do it you're still going to do it and you're gonNA figure out a way to to see how it's going to get caught at some point.

We did the casting at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey. Yeah and so. I tried to rent out that same room.

Like hey what's your best advice news like stick with it now. It's like that's it. Yeah but it's the best advice I've ever gotten because a lot of people you know. There's a lot of sacrifice you're GONNA have a lot of hardships mentally physically and you know whether it's you know. Relationships chips are. There's so many things that can venture you away from your dream or what you WanNa do and it's all a matter of trying to stick with it. Yeah I'm still true.

They found out that the thing I said that in the interview so then they came in like interviewed me in studio like doing my show and I was like I totally got this thing and you're but the thing was that school Mississippi and they were looking for southern guys but I'm from California so when they found out where I was from I think that's when or I don't know the sixty thousand people try back then. Yeah you know seven make it so but I remember your season. I remember the probably wasn't the beginning of I remember you doing you like the the Ms bit there to everyone and kind of like annoying people and and I will say this.

"Come visit the Bush Center for Christmas you'll get to see what those decorations were in two thousand seven Christmas in the national parks. What kind of what kind of ornaments and decorations to tell us what we used A? We sent out actually a big balls and Estevan American artists to decorate them with a painting of their favorite National Park. Our National Park. That was close to them or that was in some part of the a country where we lived and so we have those as well and then of course we did ever sort of natural decorations like many people would using pine cones in Magnolia leaves. And the things that you might be able to just get in your own yard like in a natural way like like you would if you wanted to visit a national show park. It's GONNA be beautiful. I'm really really excited about it. Mrs Bush just on the Christmas themed for a minute such a magnificent memory timid all the memories and the White House what are some of the With all the bushes came to town and everyone went to Camp David or some of your memories from the White House years. One thing I remember is there's a group of people they're just volunteers who decorate for the White House every year decorate the put up all the decorations and they come in sort sort of around the country a number of our florist who already have decoration. You know skill in being able to decorate but they decorate from year to year. They're not necessarily supporters of whoever the president is that lives there but but it was really fun to have them come in and I remember remember that one year when we use that fake quite snow. You'll you'll have seen it. That kind of you shake out of the box was piled up under the one of the Christmas trees. I use it. They decorated then. They SORTA had snow fight at the end of the decorations. There but then what we always did was go to Camp David so I know we have a record that no other family will ever hold because we Bennett Camp David for Christmas for four years. When George's dad was president and then Then for the eight years that we were there all the Bush family came to Camp David and it was the perfect place to be there for Christmas. It led the White House. The people that work at the White House off for the holidays and the people at Camp David are stationed there. It's a military base. It's actually a navy base which is odd because it's not on the water but when it was founded during the time of Franklin Roosevelt the crew from the presidential yacht were the ones that staff to Camp David and they were navy at. There's no longer a presidential yacht but there is still of course Camp David so we were with The families that were stationed there so they were there with their own children in their parents their wives and husbands and we had always had Christmas Eve Church service at the Little Church there at Camp David with them and there was something very special about getting to be with members of the military there at Camp David Well and the national park system that that is the base of all of this to they. Don't I think everyone thinks to them is just taking care of Yosemite in the Grand Canyon but they also do the the national monuments and the White House. And the Alamo and even like I'm GonNa get this name wrong so correct me here Popa Magoo. Yeah that's exactly it. which now McCook is a national marine monument that President Bush designated in the northwestern Hawaiian silence and I got to go there? It's so far in the northwestern Pacific way up there that it's a long flight even from Honolulu up up to Papa. Now McKay Midway Island is one of the islands and Midway Island has You know a landing strip and everything because it was a refueling refueling spot during World War Two with planes that flew from the United States toward Japan. So it's the only one of the northwestern Hawaiian Y in islands. That actually has a landing spot but I did have a chance after George Name. Bid is a national marine monument. Had the chance to go there and see it but why why is it so important that we protect our oceans and assets like Honda Mokaba. Okay thank you for bailing the added. Thank you well. This is one of the things we saw when we were there. There is a very large bird the lace on Albatross that nest up there. In the northwestern North Western Hawaiian islands they nest on the ground. They don't have any natural predators that are there on these remote islands. And so these as little babies were waiting little baby lace on Albatross. Chicks were in their nest and their parents go off and fish for squid on top of the ocean and then come back that can feed their chicks. And so every once in awhile. There'd be a little dead chick and we'd look at it and when we opened it up we'd see that the parents hadn't comeback with squid but they'd come back with plastic bottle caps in toothbrushes little plastic toys and just the plastic. That's out there in that in that remote part of the ocean and of course it's not all from the United States it's from Asia from many parts of the world but we saw the effects of plastic in this most remote place. You can imagine now not every little albatross was dead. Obviously there that grew up. And and you know this big great big lice on Albatross. But still it was a reminder of how small our world is now and how important it is that we all pay attention to what we do that what we do can make an effect you know when whatever we throw out washes down to the river and then washes out to sea and so it's important for us to try to conserve our beautiful world. We only have one plan. That's right and it's interesting because that's on the one hand that's this remote island that you and President Bush care so much about and also just your own literal backyard. Kyar Prairie Chapel ranch is an is another conservation example. When it's right on we're about either for the w one hundred that's right? We're about to go. Georgia think goes tonight to WHO The ranch and then I'll go tomorrow after the Bush Foundation Board meeting this weekend he's hosted warriors wounded warriors for the bike rides at our rats. We have a a lot of bike trails that have been built over the years. They're a new group of warriors will ride with him and then the alums who've written with him in other ears can join on the second day and ride with him too so I think that'll be a lot of fun. But one of the things we have done it. Iran's she's trying to restore the prairie that was there the native prairie that would have been there and of course it was gone because he'd been farmed the area around Waco. Oh which was a cotton producing area. And that's the farmers that we bought our property farm from at plotted but we've spent the all the years since we bought it about ten years. Now I guess we've owned it or maybe slightly longer. First plowing up the non native grass over and over year after year a year after year until we finally really got rid of it and then using these little seed from these little remnants of intact prairie that are native with grass man. That helps us at at ratchet bought up and so now we probably a little over one hundred acres of ninety prairie which means we've seen quayle again again at our ranch and we're not quite in the quail area of Texas but but we do have them because they're ground nesters they're dependent on prairies nice to nest and we've gotten to see those plus we're just proud to have it now. We have. We can met. Hey are native prairie so now we have our own native. I'd say it can continue. Adding more acreage is As we can Mrs. You've taken this idea this innovative idea of bringing Texas back to nature when you founded Texan by nature. And can you tell us just a little bit about that. Well when I moved home from the White House with this same group of France some of from where the My friend Midland friends. That a hike with Several of them are ranch. Women that grew up on the big ranches of Texas the Armstrong ranch in south South Texas Ranches Round Albany. We all joined together to try to encourage people to use native plants in everywhere in their landscapes in their churchyards wherever you can plan it and especially we wanted them to plant the milkweed. The native and low porn milkweed that monarch butterflies depend end upon to where they lay their cocoons as they migrate towards Canada for the summer and then fly back down in the winter toward Mexico coat the breeding grounds at the Monarch Butterfly. So we've worked with a lot of groups. A lot of corporations that have corporate campuses is a hundred and forty acres are so have gotten together and started to plant this antelope porn milk. Wait in one of a defense contact tractor out of close to Austin now. They're keeping bees even because they know how important it is for Po- for US ahead pollinators. We couldn't have agriculture culture if we didn't have pollinators and it's very important that we That we continue to make sure that we have enough native plants around round For the pollinators that are dependent especially then of course the monarch butterfly and as you can see sort of shape of Texas were the actual flyway of the Monarch Butterfly up from Mexico up to Canada and then back back as they fly back down. They fly in successive generations. They only live about nine days so they have to have the end low part beltway to put their coon on for the next generation. which is why it's really important? And of course nearly all of that mid part of the United States has been plowed because it's the agriculture belt. I mean we were dependent on it to write That's how we eat. But there are ways we can mitigate at the destruction to the milkweed to the end obviously slate to the monarch butterfly. You see these headlines every now and then of of in be counter down and butterfly counselor down. It's such a delicate cycle. That really is is. And that's why it's important to make sure you plant some native plants in your yard or in your on your corporate campuses like these companies around around Austin or doing or in your churchyards and so that's what Texan by nature is which is to try to encourage people to use native plants and of course they're the ones that thrive if they do the best In our pretty unforgiving atmosphere that we have here in Texas our weather I should say taught hot in December called in so as we as we get ready to wrap here I think we. We've gotTA know. We've talked so much about national parks and you've been to. So how many national parks. So which one do you think parents should take their children to which we go to. What do you think well? I think you should go to your closest national park. Find out which park is close to you. find out your national historic sites that are in your neighborhoods which are also part of the national park system and visit those and certainly the parents we the trip that we would make for Midland would be to the to the big band which is our big great big huge national park down at the band of taxes. This is but then also to San Antonio to visit the Alamo and all those things that Texans like to do and you might not know it but the Alamo's national historic site right so Research and find out what are the ones closest to you and take your children to those first and then give them the opportunity to visit others versus. They grow up that I think that's a perfect message ended on Mrs Bush thank you so much for news. We know you're busy and it's an incredible treat..
