Too just sort of get it out and discuss it and discuss medicine and discuss. responses bad responses to medication and ways to stay sort of physically fit mentally and emotionally, and that was just You know something that I signed on to do because. I have bipolar, and so that was really meaningful, I mean it wasn't a film, but It was great to just sort of. Get out there and put like very public celebrity face. And just say you know man and. Get some help. I'll how and why? How and why did that come to be like? What is it that that you discovered and you know what was happening? Because at the time this, this isn't even stuff. We talked about right well exactly, and that is exactly what What made me want to just you. I don't have much of a filter anyway. I forget that I'm supposed to shape people's image of me I'm not about mystery or celebrity. You know, so. It just came up in an interview. at some point, it's like Oh. I was just diagnosed with bipolar, and of course that became huge news, and then you know people. Are you know including drug companies coming in wanting me to be their spokesperson? But you know I mean that that was not the point of the point of it. was that I it just came out and then I was like. Oh. Now I, everyone wanted me to be that face so I developed a program that really addressed the whole body and. And it's response to mental illness. It was called the wellness campaign. but basically just his state of people you know. You don't have to feel like this, and there is no shame in getting help. Shame as When you don't get help. was there was was that immediately fulfilling, or was there some shame? Put upon you because you were one of the few were out there publicly with it. Never never had that response at all I. Mean I do remember that in my early days on medication. The insurance companies were really sort of difficult. They didn't know how to navigate that. And you know the minute that you say you're on this medication and it just. It was like a stopgap a couple of times because. Possibly other people in the medication never put that down in there. I have no idea or it was just you know a timing, but. They kept you know after me after each and fly, and it was like well. What happens if you don't take your medication? That's the big question. And finally, I wrote on the by want to kill insurance executives. Oh Gum off. Like okay well, we'll let her you all. Do we all put it on the poll? Do we all WanNa?

"We're close to the documentary I don't believe you. I don't ever believe you on that front era. Yemen KNOB. I didn't ask for any of that by the way. What I need to explain to the audience. Is that basically Walter? mccaw is the closest thing that the Hispanic community has to like liberace in terms of being ridiculously theatrical about something that didn't deserve it, and the other point I need to make is that there is not a Latin person listening to this right now. WHO's mother or Awale out or sister? Didn't drag Walter Merkava into their life whether we wanted him in our life or not there there are so many Latin households where this guy was somehow a superstar. You can make the argument billy. Hell is bigger in Latin culture than the absurd and wonderful from Spanish television theatrical Walter Merkava like it. Down to Walter Gao and Don Zone Francisco. Gordo, that's that's it. That's the that's the entire list. Happy Sixty ninth birthday to Jesse the body Ventura. Birthday to him I don't care. Good Luck Nice one of the most amazing things of my entire life that the original Predator movie produced not one but two. United States governors like you could have gotten good good money if you bet that becoming the thing that would happen between him and Schwarzenegger I want to get into Stugatz his thoughts on the new ESPN radio lineup that was announced while we were gone. we will get to our thoughts on that in a second to celebrate a seismic shift in the lineup work. Work Stand to God's, we are here through through a couple of different explosions on the ESPN radio front. We're wobbled, but still standing, but I can't get to it just yet. Because Billy has more thoughts on Walter, Marcado well, Dan. I have a number of apologies to issue here because you asked me who's on the list with Walter, Marcado and I just I very lazily. Just said don't front seats GonNa Gordo, Molina, but that left off. Lifelock lillies Stefan. I didn't include Christina. I didn't include the Doda. Buluk who fun facts Gaza, the host by the way fun fact, same birthday as me I know you're interested in that Dan then in the silo got that category. We have got Lucianne Havi Andromeda, but they were more. You know there more players role players to the don't find Cisco. That was obviously the don't in this case right, and then there's Hispanic. Hispanic Ryan seacrest and Rica scientists, and if you're going in the news category, nobody compared to Guillermo Benitez. Nobody compared to hit. So those are the apologies for omitting those people at the beginning now, Walter, cal has we've discussed or Rican astrologer, so we were trying to get him naturally to pick football games for us because we had a long lineage Matav. People like. You know the Baldwin, so we had to follow up on break, so naturally went to Walter so I'm going back and forth with his nieces. who were doing this thing and I'm I'm writing these emails in English then I'm translating them in Spanish and I'm getting my family members, too like proofread to make sure that I don't i. don't want embarrassed by so if I. If you have a line of conduct last thing you WanNa do is embarrass yourself obviously right, so I have some phone calls at a making emails going back and forth and I think we finally found a way to get Walter Right. We're going to have him on. And then, and then as I was saying you went on honeymoon and Stugotz is not the person's. Walter was not that would. Be Good with Walter. mccotter we would call him a bit of a mystic right, an oracle. We'd also like a flamboyant mystic correct. That's what we would make I. There's been very few people like him in the history of entertainment. In fact, the world's yeah. I can't think of very many where he is basic. All he was doing was reading horoscopes right, but he did it so theatrically. Retake all. He was doing brisk retail. Is Going to the supermarket. Remember the survey that you said there's little scrolls that you would get aquarius. All he was doing was really it was just putting on a show a performance. He was telling you in very uncertain terms that you couldn't of track back and say hey. You were wrong about this. No, no, no, you wouldn't give you. That will give you very uncertain terms messages of Mars. Vague, very, he was kind of terrible as A. Terrible he was the. Best but he was also vague so vague that it didn't seem much like science. He was giving you messages of inspiration, and positively to believe in yourself at. If you believe in yourself, you could accomplish anything because if you don't believe in you. Who would believe in you? Good question? Walter, so he was spreading positively and I felt like that's what we needed in the celebrity prognosticator segment positively right now again you. You then went on. Your thing and Stugotz wasn't gonNA. Do well with him and then unfortunately we've established that you got back. Walter passed away, so we couldn't get Walter on the show. We were this close this close and again. Jerry Stiller another one that I want even right. You've mentioned a couple of different times that I went on my trip. That's God's wasn't equipped and then not holding it against you. That we didn't talk. Foot sounders would time. Things differently could possibly had well as well. It's interesting. We were close that you mentioned time again. I'm resentful. It's interesting that you mentioned time again because. I wanted to ask you about the Netflix documentary involving. Walter Marcado no, but we've now gone two segments, and you've eaten up all the time. And what's GonNa Happen. Is GonNa? People are gonNA. Blame me for being both anti. Da Though.

"nick offerman" Discussed on In Bed with Nick and Megan

"For an audition for the College Dance Department and while I was hanging out in the hallway during her audition I ran into a couple of theater students and I can't remember how in the world I happen to strike up a conversation with them. They must have said. Hey Kid you can't be hanging out here or something but it came out. Ah since and I said what do you mean. What does that mean and they said we? We studied theater acting in plays and I said well then. What can you get a job doing that? And they said yeah in Chicago for example or places like New York or London you can be paid to perform plays and that was my helen. Keller moment rose like like Oh and I went home and said Mom and Dad. I'm going to audition to be a theater student. You can get paid to do plays in Chicago and I mean it blew. It was such an epiphany and I gave the did it. I went and had audition and write an essay to get into this theater conservatory where they only take sixteen actors a year and looking back at how terrible it all must have been. Because I'd never done this kind of audition addition before. How did she get in she? I here's here's my guests to think about it was it was very much a regional theatre training program. So there's a lot of shakespeare their training you to go to like Illinois Shakespeare or to do more pageant based or presentational theatre styles and so when you're doing shows like that you need talent and and good actors to cast Aston the roles but you also need a few guys to carry the good looking people off stage on Palanquins and in Horse Carts and whatnot. You know if you're doing the three musketeers. You need a couple of thugs so I think I slipped and through that sort of loophole. Did you have any kind of like movement audition audition or singing or anything like that. No I mean I do think I was asked about that. And I said that I was really interested in their sword fighting department their movement department really coordinated and Good with movement and dare I say the dots and he was a fight choreographer and it's done a lot of that kind of thing but yeah. I always thought that you could have been should have pedal on more of a dance. Dance background if you'd really wanted to over. That's not me and I just started a band within the last few years for full dancing I made a joke a few years ago. Like I'm going to be a dancer. Ha Harvey laughed. Well guess what. I'm a dancer. So you never know your true calling but back to you you go to. The you. Buy In champaign Urbana. Is it wrong of me to say that. I don't like the name Champagne Champagne or the name or banner for towns specially Bandeau. I mean people get to likely was a tribe right. Wasn't that a no thing. He was more four. Oh Oh then. I don't like him. I don't know I'm thinking of Champlain. Champlain there's a lake champlain. Champagne I'm not. I don't understand why it's the name of Italian her Bana as a really sure not cute. That's like it's like town of town. Oh Yeah City yeah city turn Setina Sunny Way. I just needed to lodge a formal complaint you know and I have to say While while we're on at many of the Residents of the town college shampoo banana for perhaps because they feel better similar version but also hyphenated in it. I thought it was two different towns. It is because it's a little twin town but confusingly. It's it's known as Champaign Urbana but the college is called Old University of Illinois at her Bana Champagne so they don't they don't know their ass from a hole in the ground attitude to know how to grow delicious sweetcorn corn but God get your town. Okay all right well. I'm glad that we got those things off chests all right so you actually graduated -aduated from college owes today's hot take. I did graduate. I took a year off because we toured a Kabuki show Oh yes attack about. Let's talk about this. Nick was a member of a Kabuki Theatre Company in college. This is what I'm talking about with his ability to express himself physically. And you were on a tour for a year. We'll know that we toured weird Japan as part of the school year because our professor and director shows of Saito Sensei was getting ready to retire so so in a celebratory way of his career of adapting Shakespeare in Greek dramas to traditional Japanese Kabuki theatre style l.. There was this tour to Japan of our show and it was nineteen ninety one the first to hungry. Sorry am I right well. Yes or the first Gulf War had started sadly and so some producers said hey this anti instinct dance to war antiwar. I'd say this is an anti war against war. Were is over if you want. That's Yoko Gone John from our bed in podcast. We've come full circle. So some producers picked up the show and and we did a professional production in a great regional theater outside of Philadelphia called the People's light and theatre company in malvern Pennsylvania. We did it there for six months. We did it in Philadelphia proper then we toured. We took it to Hungary and the island of Cyprus and we were supposed to play in Transylvania for some reason big cancelled because of sesame. Vampires some Takata off too many vampires and so. We took a year off to do like a professional year of this Kabuki play which was called Kabuki Achilles and it was an adaptation of the Iliad and it Wa- It was a beautiful play. It was anti war stories of Achilles and Hector and it ended with a Kelly sang to hector basically glee. Why have I just killed you? You are as I were the same brothers. Why are we fighting? People like that and people were moved by it and and since this is partly my podcast I just want I just want to insert makes me think of these. Tom Waits lyrics that I love so much from his Song Day after tomorrow talking about both sides in a war how does God tell me. How does God choose one? Both sides are praying to the same. God how does God choose who's prayers prayers to see refuse who spins the wheel and who rolls the dice when it comes to war just makes no sense. I'm I'm MM firmly antiwar a dead horse there buddy got it and guide unlike war all right. That's part of what makes you you okay so Loud and proud focus All right so I need to know this is for me. We might even cut this out. Although this'll be the one thing that can want keep When we were on our first time to go to a restaurant and sit across from each other there and it was at that place on Franklin? That isn't there anymore. What was it called that Italian place? We got like Pizza Brad. We sat by the front window in the middle. Anyway we did it goodies.

So get this last. Stop editing you so so. The Guy who has think played Romeo was was very was a very beautiful guy and and caring and the whole thing a bit of drunken puck and Dahlia. Ah We all after seeing their production which was ripping Lee. Good picture this. No the one detail that I will include is when I believe it's one tilt. Oh No no I'm cutting you off get back to the story so we all went like hung out and had a big wine party and there may have been some. Hashish is Wellington listening and we were hanging out in the park area called Avenue Avenue of heroes. I believe share incredible and Budapest and and he and I had a very friendly evening that was kind of flirtatious and and sweet and I'm not sure if he was gay or not. I don't think so. No passes were made but but I had a girlfriend in our show another actress in our Kabuki show and she was like dancing a lot with the the sort of Nick Offerman of their company sort of swore the hot guy. Well now the just the the bigger more war bruiser welcomes their guy and And so you know it was is pretty harmless but it was. I think it was sort of to answer the question. That was the closest I ever came to sort of being attracted to a guy but nothing really went down and I mean and that sort of answered the question where I was like. This is really nice and fun. And this guy's definitely beautiful but but I'm not I'm not thinking about getting up on his joint okay. So can I just tell you that at that table at Bernie knees or whatever the fuck. That place was call. Well I swear to God you tell me that Hungarian guy went down. You know bet. There's no way training get in the conversation. Asian fast talking about the women absolutely like when we first were going out. You seem so exotic you seem like something off of like a a Grecian urn like you seem like a creature of legend and so I absolutely would expect that I would have the embellished things to try and impress you as one does but I would never have made such a claim. Okay well thank. Memory is tricky. Go all right. Well I am glad that we had a public reexamination of that because I have been waiting store. Nineteen years to the bottom of that story and winning for podcast. Maybe a nineteen years. We'll have a podcast and then I can like spring it on them and it worked. I feel better.

"For an audition for the College Dance Department and while I was hanging out in the hallway during her audition I ran into a couple of theater students and I can't remember how in the world I happen to strike up a conversation with them. They must have said. Hey Kid you can't be hanging out here or something but it came out. Ah since and I said what do you mean. What does that mean and they said we? We studied theater acting in plays and I said well then. What can you get a job doing that? And they said yeah in Chicago for example or places like New York or London you can be paid to perform plays and that was my helen. Keller moment rose like like Oh and I went home and said Mom and Dad. I'm going to audition to be a theater student. You can get paid to do plays in Chicago and I mean it blew. It was such an epiphany and I gave the did it. I went and had audition and write an essay to get into this theater conservatory where they only take sixteen actors a year and looking back at how terrible it all must have been. Because I'd never done this kind of audition addition before. How did she get in she? I here's here's my guests to think about it was it was very much a regional theatre training program. So there's a lot of shakespeare their training you to go to like Illinois Shakespeare or to do more pageant based or presentational theatre styles and so when you're doing shows like that you need talent and and good actors to cast Aston the roles but you also need a few guys to carry the good looking people off stage on Palanquins and in Horse Carts and whatnot. You know if you're doing the three musketeers. You need a couple of thugs so I think I slipped and through that sort of loophole. Did you have any kind of like movement audition audition or singing or anything like that. No I mean I do think I was asked about that. And I said that I was really interested in their sword fighting department their movement department really coordinated and Good with movement and dare I say the dots and he was a fight choreographer and it's done a lot of that kind of thing but yeah. I always thought that you could have been should have pedal on more of a dance. Dance background if you'd really wanted to over. That's not me and I just started a band within the last few years for full dancing I made a joke a few years ago. Like I'm going to be a dancer. Ha Harvey laughed. Well guess what. I'm a dancer. So you never know your true calling but back to you you go to. The you. Buy In champaign Urbana. Is it wrong of me to say that. I don't like the name Champagne Champagne or the name or banner for towns specially Bandeau. I mean people get to likely was a tribe right. Wasn't that a no thing. He was more four. Oh Oh then. I don't like him. I don't know I'm thinking of Champlain. Champlain there's a lake champlain. Champagne I'm not. I don't understand why it's the name of Italian her Bana as a really sure not cute. That's like it's like town of town. Oh Yeah City yeah city turn Setina Sunny Way. I just needed to lodge a formal complaint you know and I have to say While while we're on at many of the Residents of the town college shampoo banana for perhaps because they feel better similar version but also hyphenated in it. I thought it was two different towns. It is because it's a little twin town but confusingly. It's it's known as Champaign Urbana but the college is called Old University of Illinois at her Bana Champagne so they don't they don't know their ass from a hole in the ground attitude to know how to grow delicious sweetcorn corn but God get your town. Okay all right well. I'm glad that we got those things off chests all right so you actually graduated -aduated from college owes today's hot take. I did graduate. I took a year off because we toured a Kabuki show Oh yes attack about. Let's talk about this. Nick was a member of a Kabuki Theatre Company in college. This is what I'm talking about with his ability to express himself physically. And you were on a tour for a year. We'll know that we toured weird Japan as part of the school year because our professor and director shows of Saito Sensei was getting ready to retire so so in a celebratory way of his career of adapting Shakespeare in Greek dramas to traditional Japanese Kabuki theatre style l.. There was this tour to Japan of our show and it was nineteen ninety one the first to hungry. Sorry am I right well. Yes or the first Gulf War had started sadly and so some producers said hey this anti instinct dance to war antiwar. I'd say this is an anti war against war. Were is over if you want. That's Yoko Gone John from our bed in podcast. We've come full circle. So some producers picked up the show and and we did a professional production in a great regional theater outside of Philadelphia called the People's light and theatre company in malvern Pennsylvania. We did it there for six months. We did it in Philadelphia proper then we toured. We took it to Hungary and the island of Cyprus and we were supposed to play in Transylvania for some reason big cancelled because of sesame. Vampires some Takata off too many vampires and so. We took a year off to do like a professional year of this Kabuki play which was called Kabuki Achilles and it was an adaptation of the Iliad and it Wa- It was a beautiful play. It was anti war stories of Achilles and Hector and it ended with a Kelly sang to hector basically glee. Why have I just killed you? You are as I were the same brothers. Why are we fighting? People like that and people were moved by it and and since this is partly my podcast I just want I just want to insert makes me think of these. Tom Waits lyrics that I love so much from his Song Day after tomorrow talking about both sides in a war how does God tell me. How does God choose one? Both sides are praying to the same. God how does God choose who's prayers prayers to see refuse who spins the wheel and who rolls the dice when it comes to war just makes no sense. I'm I'm MM firmly antiwar a dead horse there buddy got it and guide unlike war all right. That's part of what makes you you okay so Loud and proud focus All right so I need to know this is for me. We might even cut this out.

"nick offerman" Discussed on The Frame

"Now more my chat with woodworkers slash actors slash comedian Nick Offerman it turns out when Offerman came to KPCC's studios the other day. It may not have been the first time a few months ago. I taped a live interview here with Offerman wife Comedian Media and musician Megan Mullaly who had this to say crazy here. Quiz talk about him out in the car more suited. I leave no windows now. You've been waiting the lot all this time. Many months the windows were up and you had some food and some water I mean that's the story of my career. I set in the parking lot of NBC for deck for ten years ears and then finally somebody asked me to come in sweep and somebody else thought that my mustache was funny and here we are. I'm curious areas about creative decisions creative choices you make you're doing something with a Holly Lucy in the sky. I think you're doing something coming up with our Scarlett. How how do you decide. What gets you motivated? What interests you and how has that evolved over the last couple of years in terms of choosing things and say no to other things well? It's a it's a great question. there was there was a time. I don't know fifteen years ago. Mister Megan Mullaly at my would shop and I was working semi regularly as a character actor and I driven from Los Angeles to Santa Clarita which is maybe forty five minutes north and that's where he had to go if to if you had an audition for CSI and had been up there may be seven times to to read for some version of the the rapist or serial killer about being cath. That's right okay the yeah the seven times means over seven and and and number eight came in and this is probably over four years or something and audition number eight came in and I said you know what they they haven't given it to me seven times. I'M GONNA I'M NOT GONNA go. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA start to choose to say no to things and and it's incredible to just ever get a job in Hollywood and the first place and so if things go well enough the get to the point where you can pick things and that that continued of course parks and recreation up to my cachet I mean exponentially to the point where when that ended the businesses of business so I suddenly was being offered huge Sitcom lead contracts but they were all about an ex marine green who loves to grill and or a football coach you know who who's tough as nails and I was like yeah this to the only thing I don't want to do is another mustache mustache comedy and so- Megan and I have really always been this way whether it's in the theater or in in shooting for the camera we we don't go looking for a comedy or a John Laura. all we do is consider. The writing that comes comes across our table and see what moves us doesn't matter if it's funny or tragedy it's just writing that we think is good and working with people that we think are good people. that won't be a nightmare I'm now. I'm really expecting something to come along for Meghan. Who is the greatest actress. I may be slightly biased but she you know she's known for her comedy chops but her dramatic attic work is astonishing. You know I'm expecting her to have a Bryan Cranston. Turn where somebody realizes. She should be the lead of the the next fleabag breaking bad and ask you one last thing about woodworks explain what woodworks is W. O. U. L. D. and and why it's important to you well. woodworks is a program in. Los Angeles that was started by some very smart people they they're interested in and trying to help us deal with our homeless problem here and the idea of woodworks is people on skid row or people who have lost their homes can sign up to come perform. Labor on woodworking objects cutting boards and coasters and gift items and instead stead of getting paid they sign up to receive something they need to get back on their feet which could be a pair of glasses a suit of clothes first month's rent rent anything like that and then they come and perform the Labor. They're trained by a couple of the woodworkers from my shop they do that that they received their pair of glasses or whatever it is but more importantly than receive a work reference where prospective employers can call and and we say yes. Julie showed up. She was sober. I would take a chance on her. She's a good lady and the thing is when misfortune in strikes you which in so many cases it's because of health care issues. It's like when you think of people in prison. Your mind goes to did this incorrect place of like Oh. It's a bunch of evil people or the homeless you think oh it's a bunch of losers or drug addicts or whatever and when you meet them mm-hmm you're like Oh. These are just us. It's people who have met with misfortune of circumstance human beings don't WanNa lay around in a tent on the sidewalk. They want to do something that gives their lives meaning and that's why it's called would works these people would work if they could and when it came to my attention. I you know it's just just a natural fit for my woodshop and I'm grateful that we're able to help prop up the organization and is it becomes healthier and stronger. You know I keep hoping for a platform to I think every city across the country should have something like this. It's really healthy net great to see you. Thanks for coming in my pleasure. Thank you Nick Offerman. All rise comes to the city National Grove of Anaheim on October thirteen.

"Nick offerman continues to embrace his career making role of Ron Swanson from the hit. TV show parks and recreation but offerman does a lot of other things to in no particular order. He's a serious woodworker running the offerman from an woodshop out of east. La He's the author of several books including paddle your own canoe and he's currently trained a new live show which is titled. All rise is offerman told me how all rise is different from other shows. He's done in the past because of this sort of fraught political climate that that not only our country is in but really the world is suffering under I wanted to attack my writing differently for for me to feel like I was putting across a more medicinal message perhaps than had previously and so so the easy thing to do would be just go on stage and pluck all of the political low hanging fruit of the day but I don't think that helps I think that only only sort of adds fuel to the partisan fires and so instead I took a step back from the fray and said I want to write material. That's making fun of all of us because we've all done this to ourselves. Were in this country that purportedly we get to pick how things go and look look what we got ourselves in this mess were all screaming about our soiled diapers and you know somebody feed me and and and so my goal with the show is an and with the title all rise is to point out things about really my it's really made his it's looking at a mirror and saying okay what tribal behaviors you know. What sort of ruts are we in as a society that are partly at the root of these problems that I can make fun of and by doing so you know. Maybe help us all step up a little bit. It sounds like that's a little bit of an evolution in your way of thinking about the issues I wanNA play a clip from two thousand fourteen when you did the Congressional Radio and TV correspondents dinner in Washington. DC All right between the Republicans and Democrats the city is become. Let's face it. A noxious stink hole were very little actually gets done because of the backstabbing stabbing deceit and greed so I just want to thank all of you for making a Hollywood actor like myself feel welcome. I mean you're you're saying something that at the time was true and obviously it's exponentially worse today. But at what point do you say to yourself as a different way of looking at it and do you think that there is something more curative in that approach well you know for some reason the things have become exacerbated to the point where a lot of more people in my world are succumbing to despair or cynicism and for whatever reason. I seem to be an eternal optimist and so just across the years of my life I look at the evolution of of our society and trudges inexorably forward even though from day to day there's always tragedy. Ajete and atrocity you know their natural disasters crimes against humanity constantly being committed at the same time as as a as a world population. We're just we are ever trudging forward where gay marriage has become a ubiquitous accepted thing and if you'd told me that in high school. I would would have said no way that's that's where I draw optimism from and I and I say okay okay instead of instead of insulting everybody. We're all worthy of insults. Were all worthy of praise where human beings so we carry the angels and the devils all within us in the show. I say I believe the you know if you boil down the constitution. Purportedly the point of America is to be cool to everybody and you know we're you can feel is just slowly like clawing our way toward data the eventual goal the thing that's also interesting about the tour is where you're playing a couple of weeks ago. You were at the Windstar World Casino Oh and resort and Thacker Ville Oklahoma. I think a couple of days here at the Fox cities pack whatever that is Performing Arts Center in Appleton Wisconsin and are you intentionally not being a coastal tour where you're just playing New York. La San Francisco actually play the entire country and does the play in the show play differently in different parts of the country. It's interesting a to answer the first part I never dreamed that that I would get to tour with just a backpack and a guitar and show up to theaters around the world and give the audience a piece of my mind and seeing some some dumb funny songs that I wrote and they end they'll pay me and call that a job there's a small percentage of the fan base that didn't understand that parks and REC was comedy perhaps or or fictional and so there's there there are people out there who consider consider Ron Swanson to be a real life like libertarian hero and they come expecting like a treatise on the double barrel shotgun or something and so they you know some probably some of them come around to good humor. Some of them probably leave in a huff but by and large. I think I've had enough exposure that people have a pretty good idea what they're getting at the heart of parks and wreck and hopefully at the heart of material is a good natured ribbing about how people are complicated and I I try not to insult people but I do definitely I'm very judgmental of of foolish actions. I would shake anybody's hand and offer them. A Sandwich shift came to my house but if they happen to put kids in cages or something it's a Let's talk about this real quick. That's maybe not the coolest thing we're talking with actor writer comedian musician and woodworker worker Nick Offerman. You did not bring a guitar or Ukulele that I can see did not. Is there a song their new songs and your show. There's something you could do even acapella well. There are seven new songs lutely think real quick of what doesn't have any turbe terribly bad words in it might be hard there's a bit where I talk about language and how human beings are so funny with their language and in our country right now were furiously sleep experimenting with the meaning of words like meet consent truth were were really wrestling with what what what defines these words and the thing. I love about science is that it's repeatable improvable. It's not open to subjective interpretation and and then break into a song called. I'm no scientist that that goes. I'm no scientist. I'm just as simple man but I got some loud opinions on things that don't really understand like who needs years research. When you got folks it common sense. Let's put away your books. Charts got some wisdom to dispense and the the best joke in that song is I'm no scientist assist but I lacked a question what I'm told so. Tell me if this world is heating up how come mob beer still cooled and that usually gets the point across when ask you about one other kind of side hobby or interest. I know an an actor I think his name is George Clooney. did some. Tequila that turned out to be pretty good and it's wrong and say I drink to kill the Er guy and you've got a whiskey. The are you GonNa do a clooney with the whisky. If that's become a verb about making your own I'm going to pull the Clooney the log Phoolan Hulan offerman edition that is coming out this fall. That is the real thing. It is a real single malt whiskey. It is yeah I'd be such an aunt if I it didn't cop to the incredible bounty. The parks and recreations brought me Lago Villain is really smoky delicious a single malt from Isla which is a beautiful little island off the northwest coast of Scotland and that was Ron Swanson's Scotch and so much so the by the end of the series we run traveled to the distillery in Scotland and which was just such an incredible dream come true I hit it off with the the distillery we became friends and they hired me to start doing funny little comedy commercials that mainly exist on Youtube L. O. their friend for yourself a glass of whisky the and throw some more on the fire. I'd like to tell you the age old story of the Treasurer of log of and we've been doing that. I think for about five years now once a year we go over there and shoot you know stupid parks and REC flavored little comedy spots and I guess it's it's done well enough that they're now putting out a bottle of their scotch with my face on it a woodcut of what appears here's to be my great grandfather's face and I'm just you know I'm just minding my manners as keep riding this train if good fortune.

"Of the kind of random weird roles that occur in someone's career particularly yours i'm just curious because it's just so striking to see prior to the late thirties big break for instance in city angels you played construction worker the trite how was that experience it was great i had just been an la for maybe a couple years and actually got cast in this really nice scene in the movie and i'm a huge vin vendors fan and so even though i knew that the american version would have to be garbage greatest works of art it's not even really that insulting to city of angels it would just be an american in anything it's the big mac of vendors movies but i got this really nice scene where nncholas cage suspects he's become more no he's an angel who is testing to see if he's become mortal he does so by jumping off a third storey construction site right and i and i was this security guard who finds him and like hey butter you okay and he's like my bleeding his finding out if he's now mortal and we ended up having this nice conversation about women and men and i was so excited i mean nncholas cage is peak nncholas cage at the time and i'm living in somebody's basement like and i was running shot at a construction site down in orange county maybe an hour south of la rode my motorcycle to said i was maybe twenty eight years old i get their brad silverline was the director he came to my trailer you know the third time even ever had a trailer nick how're you doing good to see so we we've already we've already got the information we've done some rewriting and we've already sort of covered what you're seeing was about so we've cut the same we argon is kinda still do it we're gonna have him jump off the thing and we're going to have just some construction workers like yell some stuff down at him so if you want we'll give you could stay in do one of those lines also we're having lobster for lunch so we'd love for you to stay for lunch today knicks not wanna pass well that's but i do love lobster okay and the crazy thing so i did it and we do the scene nncholas cage lands he wakes up and somebody we l down and he's he's senses blood on his face and he says is this blood and i is it red and that's my live in the movie the astonishing so glad that i did it because the stunning lesson was from all corners of the nation people ahead and talked to ten years would call me and be like dude thank you that said is it red and many friends when i'd see them get cross a crowded ballgame parking lot which is yellow i was like well i believe my career has peaked ramon comparable to this delightful moment and we'll get ill a bit more into hearts beat loud this wonderful new film you're in but there's this delightful moment where you hear the song that you've done with your daughter on spotify and it is this kind of transcendent like oh my god just like a beautiful moment is there is there a moment like that in your career hopefully they'll tell me it's is it red no i mean the ice oppose the only thing i could compare to it i mean i've never had anything that brit brett haley the film director says it's very much no mosh to a similar moment in that thing you do yeah yes yeah i've never read anything that you know singularly revelatory but when the advent of parks and recreation as a popular piece of culture and specifically my character went hand in hand with social media and the creation of memes and gifts or jeff's where do you come down gift i had to read something on camera yesterday and they told me to say jeff and it really upset me greatly yeah i think you i'll forever be happy with either either or either either gift for either but that all happened and so there were there were a lot of really trippy moments where ron swanson through no fault of mine or the show he was sort of picked up and carried in little elvin wheelbarrows by the culture to so many places and so suddenly he would crop up and that's still happening where like in india there's a picture of ron swanson that's being used all over the.

"So that was fun it was i thought it was very sweet of chris to say when i was talking to him during the red carpet he was like you know tongue in cheek he was like obviously josh you made this happen and i'm saying that now on counter because i'm not gonna during my speech party was like is he gonna shout you out like i was saying to other people is as close as i'll ever come to getting i think i had a chance of getting a shoutout during a speech it was probably so it's never going to happen till michael shannon gets generation of word speaking of today's guest is not michael shannon it's nicole ferman who we all love he is in a wonderful new movie called heartbeat loud and he the reason i mentioned i thought of him when you mentioned shannon is michael shannon has a little cameo on this episode hate i know sammy doesn't know about mean sitting here right now i've chained him underneath the desk no so nick and mike go way back to the chicago theatre days and when i tape this about we can a half ago i noticed that michael shannon was doing qna at a theatre that same night within the golfer men and nick and i were talking about it and as you'll hear during the conversation i gently suggested towards the end maybe we should call mike let's see what he's up to so the last five or six minutes of this podcast features michael shannon on the phone with us and it's wonderful it's fantastic it's had little desert to wait for but you don't even it's not like you're slotting or anything because no offerman is so great and he first of all a voice to die for now perfect for podcast fulbe you'd af of lay of and he he's great and he of course if you them on parks and rec he you of his woodworking skills getting make you like did he make a new desk while easier or anything one day maybe did he make you feel like man his present take much for that but yes of course he's very manly he is very badly hit quite a beard shot off and i do heartily recommend his new film because as i said in the opening this is the rare leading performance for him like he's obviously been this character and supporting player but this is probably his first substantive lead in film and it's getting great reviews and i really enjoyed it it's a very sweet movie it's him and cure see clemens you've seen her in dope it's a father daughter story takes place in brooklyn and they're kind of like bonding in they kind of form their own little band as she's about to go off to college and it is a very sweet respite from the trash fire of our world right now and i recommend it if you want like a hundred minutes of delightful music sweet respite sweet relationships toni collette senate of so there's a lot on their one i messed and on their and what's not all about what things it's like you're purposefully thank things to hurt me now okay well it doesn't take so yes so a lot to enjoy in this episode of happy second fused nick offerman and as a bonus a little little monkey shine which always a good thing as always remember what we usually say at the end of these interest it's been a while sammy i remember that everyone has sterry member to review rate and subscribe speaking of which i saw our biggest fan allison brie over to movie and tv awards g review rate and subscribe mug there she was busy like she wasn't like she couldn't erin allison dave we're waiting we are wait and season two glow coming soon yes review rain subscribe on i tunes spread the good word and enjoy hearts be loud.
