"Yeah. Something about the rights between the men and the women in the story really interests me in the sense that I think the other girls, Doris ethna and crystal, are more tolerant of this male behavior, like they're more habituated to it than Mary is. She's not habituated to it. And they maybe will become even more habituated to it. This is sort of the world that they swim in. Misses Rogers, herself, seems to have sort of acquired a taste for the male behavior in the story. And in fact, is lovers with mister brogan. And so there is a kind of instance of actual tenderness between men and women, which I find interesting about the story also that misses Rogers, her position and that hotel and the way it's described does have a vague aura of the brothel in the madam about it. Of course, of course. And there's a reason she's inviting girls. That's not just so they can move the furniture. Decoration. And amusement on the part of the men, yeah. Yeah. So she does make some effort to sort of protect them at the end. Even though she won't sleep in the same room as that. Right, and actually that reminds me about an interesting reversal to the Cinderella structure is that the kind of less beautiful, less alluringly simple minded mountainy village girls, unlike the stepsisters and Cinderella, do become more the equals of or sympathetic to Mary near the end of the story. And at least ethna does, because they protect her. And that's an interesting turn, I think, that they're all in a predicament that's shared. An ethno is actually sympathetic to her earlier in the story too when she she likes the dress. And she doesn't want to admit it to Doris. Such a classically tortured dynamic where she can't be nice in front of her friend because the agreed upon collective version of things is that this girl is beneath them and someone that they have a bit of contempt for. Yeah. She was saying before at some point, the story close to the end becomes not so much Mary's story as everyone's story and the story of everyone's foiled yearnings. And we do go into at least long John salmon's mind as he's kind of thinking, why did I go to a party? I could be swimming and doing my illusions and we hear about how crystals never going to get married because it would mean not wearing her curlers and she loves them more and why do you think Anna O'Brien chose to sort of shift into the other characters a little more at the end? I'm not sure what her motivation is, but in terms of its effects as a story, I really feel like it's the great writer who would shift into everyone else's longings and motivations in that scene rather than stick with the sort of injustice of what Mary expects as opposed to what Mary finds..

"Yeah. Also, when you brought up the story, you said that your first reading of it, you were drawn to it because of the kind of Cinderella quality of this girl going to the ball and then having her dreams dashed because prince charming does not show up to this ball. But what's interesting to me is that even the prince charming in the story, while he was just a married guy who was playing around with a 15 year old girl, no intention of ever coming back, he told her he couldn't love her because he had a wife. That is exactly right. I almost think it becomes a sort of joke between the author and the reader. And not exactly at Mary's expense, but we can see what she can't. First of all, he's not honorable. He is married. As you say, no intention of coming back. But the other component of that dynamic is that he's got her washing his shirts and acting nursemaid and attending to his sunburn and she's all ready, gleefully engaged in the drudgery of what a wife would be doing for this man. But sees it as part of this avenue for escape that she might have. But I think that that is a kind of tender joke there. Yeah. Why do you think he sends the drawing? You know, I don't know why he sends her the drawing except that it probably pleases him to think of her pining a little bit. And maybe he's proud of his artistic accomplishments, but one interesting thing about the drawing is that when Edna Bryan revised the story and changed the title of it to put into her collection, she changed the drawing from looking like Mary, but prettier to looking like Mary, but uglier. It's an interesting change. I don't know exactly what it means except that the dream of the seduction withers that much sooner. Upon the moment of the drawings arrival, Mary may be conceived better that this person didn't actually see her for who she was. Or didn't see her for whatever she values about her own beauty. Yeah. Interestingly, O'Toole does see her beauty. No tool the most crass of all people who can't be bothered to remember her name. You know, other people might think her hair was ski lish. I think that's the worst. Which I think means sort of slovenly and messy. But he sees the beauty in it. He likes these simple girls. Right, and they're both tall and thin. Yeah. And I think he doesn't know better than to try to pursue her by persistence. He won't have been the first man in the history of the world to adopt this tactic. Yeah. I mean, he's sort of put out that no one wants to have a cuddle with him. You know, he feels it's owed to him. On the other hand, until he gets really drunk and opens all the taps. He doesn't seem malicious to me. He just seems confused as to why there's no response to his advances. What, I don't think that having desire for somebody and using persistence to try to pursue them is necessarily malicious. It might just be a misunderstanding of what they want versus what you want. Of course, the effects of it can be very harmful to people, but that doesn't mean that his intention is to hurt Mary..

"Come into the drawing room, Doris, said O'Toole to marry, who is serving jelly from a big enamel basin. They'd had no nice bowl to put it in. It was red jelly with whipped egg white in it, but it hadn't set properly. She served in saucers and thought what a rough and ready party it was. There wasn't a proper cloth on the table either, just a plastic one, and no napkins, and that big basin with the jelly in it may be people washed in that basin downstairs. Will someone tell us a bloomin joke, said Hickey, who with getting fed up with talk about drawing rooms and flower beds. I'll tell you a joke, said long John salmon, who had been silent up until then. Goods said Rogan, as he sipped from his whisky glass and his stout glass alternately. Is it a funny joke, Hickey asked of long John salmon? It's about my brother said long John salmon, my brother Patrick, oh, no, don't tell us that old rambling thing again, Hickey said it once, and O'Toole not at his own protest. I'll let him tell it, said misses Rogers, who'd never heard the story anyhow, long John salmon began. I had this brother Patrick and he died, the heart wasn't too good. Holy Christ, not this again, said brogan recollecting which story it was. But long John salmon went on undeterred by the size from the three men. One day I was standing in the shed about a month after he was buried, and I saw him coming out of the wall, walking across the yard. Oh, what would you do if you saw a thing like that, Doris said to ethna? Let him tell it, misses Rogers said, go on long John. Well, it was walking toward me and I said to myself, what do I do now? Which was raining heavy and I said to my brother Patrick, stand in out of the wet, or you'll get drenched. And then, said one of the girls anxiously, he vanished, said long John salmon. Oh God, let us have a bit of music, said Hickey, who had heard that story 9 or ten times. They put a record on and no tool asked Mary to dance..

"Is that your brother the bishop, ethno duggan, who knew well that it was, asked misses Rogers concerning the potato faced cleric over the fireplace. Unknown to herself, Mary had traced the letter J on the dust of the picture glass earlier on, and now they all seem to be looking at it, knowing how it came to be there. That's him poor Charlie, misses Rogers said proudly, and was about to elaborate but brogan began to sing. Let the man sing, can't you, O'Toole said, hushing two of the girls who were having a joke about the armchair they shared, the springs were hanging down underneath, and the girls said that at any minute the whole thing would collapse. Mary shivered in her lace dress, and another thing the sleeves were dipping into everything. The room smelled cold and damp, even though Hickey had got up a good fire. There hadn't been a fire in that room since the day de valera signed the autograph book. When brogan finished, O'Toole asked, if any of the ladies would care to sing. There were 5 ladies in all, misses Rogers Mary Doris ethna and crystal o'meara, the local hairdresser, who had a new red rinse in her hair, and who insisted that the food was a little heavy for her. The goose was greasy and undercooked, she did not like its raw pink color. She liked dainty things, little bits of cold chicken with beetroot and sweet pickles. Her real name was Carmel, but when she started up as a hairdresser, she changed to crystal and dyed her brown hair red. I bet you can sing a tool said to marry. Where she comes from, they can hardly talk, Doris said. Mary felt the blood rushing to her cheeks. She would not tell them, but her father's name had been in the paper once, because he had seen a pine marten in the forestry plantation, and they ate with knife and fork at home, and had a plastic cloth on.

"Of good that is, her mother, who had been expecting a gold bracelet or a brooch said, that wouldn't take you far. They hung it on a nail in the kitchen for a while, and then one day it fell down and some one probably her mother used it to sweep dust onto. Ever since it was used for that purpose, Mary had wanted to treasure it to put it away in a trunk forever, but she was ashamed to. They were hard people, and it was only when someone died that they could give in to sentiment or crying. Sweet Mary, he had said, he never wrote, two summers passed, devil's poker's flowered for two seasons, thistle seed blue white in the harsh mountain wind, and the trees and the forestry plantation were a foot higher. She had a feeling that he would come back sometime and annoying fear that he might not. Oh, it ain't gonna rain no more no more. It ain't gonna rain no more. How in hell can the old folks tell it ain't gonna rain no more? So sang brogan, whose party it was, in the upstairs room of the commercial hotel. I'm buttoning his Brown waistcoat, he sat back and said what it finds spread it was. They had carried the goose up on a platter and laid in the center of the mahogany table with potato stuffing swelling out of it. There were sausages also, and polished glasses standing rimmed downward and plates and forks for everyone. A fork supper was how misses Rogers described it. She had read about it in the paper, it was all the rage now and posh houses in Dublin, this fork separate where you stood up for your food and ate with a fork only. Mary had brought knives in case anyone got into difficulties. Tis America at home, Hickey said, putting turf on the smoking fire. The pub door was bolted down stairs, the shutters across is the 8 guests upstairs watched misses Rogers carve the goose, and then tear the loose pieces away with her fingers. Every so often she wiped her fingers on a tea towel. Here you are, Mary, give this to mister brogan as he's the guest of honor. Mister brogan got a lot of breast and some crispy skin as well. Don't forget the sausages, Mary, misses Rogers said..

"Door clicked, and in terror she ran up the alley by the side of the shop, afraid it might be someone who knew her father, and would say he had seen her going in through the public bar. She wheeled her bicycle into a shed and approached the back door. It was open, but being a mountainy girl, she did not enter without knocking. Two town girls rushed to answer her knock. One was Doris auburn, the daughter of the harness maker. She was the only Doris in the whole village, and she was distinguished for that, as well as for the fact that one of her eyes was blue and the other a dark brown. She was learning shorthand and typing at the local technical school, and she meant to be a secretary to some famous man or other in the government up in Dublin. God, I thought it was someone important, she said, when she saw Mary standing there, blushing, pretty, and with a bottle of cream in her hand. Another girl, girls were to a penny in that neighborhood. People said that it had something to do with the lime water that so many girls were born, girls like Mary, with pink skins, long wavy hair, and neat figures. Come in or stay out, said ethno duggan, the second girl. It was supposed to be a joke, but neither of them liked the look of Mary. They hated sly ones from the mountain. Mary came in. She put the cream on the dresser and took off her coat. The girl's nudged each other when they saw her dress. In the kitchen was a distinct smell of cow dung and fried onions. Where's misses Rogers, Mary asked? Serving Doris said in a saucy voice as if any fool ought to know. Two old men sat at the table eating. I can't chew, I have no teeth one of the men said to Doris, tis like leather, he said, holding the plate of burned steak toward her. He had pale blue eyes and he blinked childishly. Was it true, Mary wondered that eyes got paler with age like bluebells and a jar? Tis good for you chewing is ethno duggan said, teasing him? She endorsed began to giggle. Ethno duggan laughed so much that she had to put a dishcloth over her mouth. Mary went through to the shop. Misses Rogers came from the counter for a moment to speak to her. Mary, I'm glad you came. That pair in there are no use at all. Always giggling. Now, first thing we have to do is get the parlor upstairs straightened out. Everything has to come out of it except the piano. We're going to have dancing and everything tonight. Mary realized that she was being given work to do, and she blushed with shock and disappointment. Pitch everything into the back bedroom, the whole shooting lot, misses Rogers was saying, as Mary thought of her good lace dress, of how her mother wouldn't even let her wear it to mass on Sundays. And we have to stuff a goose, too, and get it started, misses Rogers said, and went on to explain that the party was in honor of mister brogan, the local customs and excise officer, who was retiring because his wife had won some money in the sweep..

"This month we're going to hear come into the drawing room Doris by Edna O'Brien, which was published in The New Yorker in October of 1962. Although she was 17, this was her first party, the invitation had come only that morning from misses Rogers of the commercial hotel. The postman brought word that misses Rogers wanted her down that evening without fail. The story was chosen by Rachel Kushner, who's the author of three novels, and most recently the essay collection, the hard crowd, which was published last year. Hi, Rachel. Hi Debra. Welcome. Thank you. You were very keen to read a story by a no, Brian on the podcast, why is that? Well, I started looking back at our history with the magazine and Edna O'Brien has published 39 stories in The New Yorker if the index I found online that is not officially sanctioned by The New Yorker is correct. And that is just it's a lot of stories and there's a lot of range there and I had first come to them through her collected works, the love object, which was published in 2013. And I thought, oh, I'll introduce myself. Not having read all of miss O'Brien's stories previously, I'll introduce myself to them with a collection. And then I started reading from The New Yorker archive, and I realized that she had made some really interesting changes between publishing them in The New Yorker and republishing them and her collection. And something about that made the whole undertaking of a study of her work really appealing, just the seriousness of the project and thinking about how writers make decisions over time and how their relationship to their own work and even sentence by sentence might change. For instance, this story, it's the first story that opens the collection, and it's her first story that was in The New Yorker. Was called in the collection, not coming to the drawing room, Doris, but Irish revel. As you said, this was the first story that Ed no Brian published in the magazine. She was, I think, 31 at the time, and it was not long. It was two years after her first novel had come out. Do you think it has all the hallmarks of the writer she became? Yes, very much so. I would say, I mean, one of the things I really like about Edna Bryant's sensibility is her ability to recapture innocence without sentimentalizing what happens to people once the scales fall from their eyes. She goes through those paces somehow treating her character with utmost precision and sympathy for what it means to have a dream. And then to have that dream be shattered. And I think that those are the hallmarks of a writer who's really in control of her craft. I noticed.

"It's sometimes you hook up and sometimes you don't and it's like it's cool like i don't know if i love like i wanna be fucking obsessed with someone that i it makes me want to die and i want to be able to write so many songs about them and i wanna i wanna go on adventures on a travel the world i want i need someone to be at least as successful if not more successful than me because men get really emasculated in relationships whether they will admit it or not. They feel uncomfortable if the girl is like doing better than them and it it that successes you know. It's it's relative. But i want someone that is at least like how has the same kind of mindset with me as me about work and success and life goals and all that stuff could you fall in love with. Let's say the best high school teacher in america loves job passionate teacher of the year award. He's crushing it financially. Obviously teachers we know are underpaid and sometimes under appreciated but he's the fucking bassey's coach the year. He's i mean if someone like no if we were really compatible and that's fine as long as he's not insecure emasculated by the fact that i'm going on torn doing all these crazy things and hanging out with random hot people all the time and as long as he's secure like i don't care what he was. Yeah and that's what i realize. A lot of the time is guys that aren't in the entertainment industry. Don't get it. They don't understand. Like i have a lot of guy friends that people might think are like really hawkeye's but i'm not attracted to them at all and they are not anything that someone i'm dating should worry about but like being in this world is like probably very it's just unknown to a lot of people so i've had more success with people that are in the entertainment industry and understand my life. I guess do you like Like when the confidence guys how. What is confident guide to you. And do you like guys who are protective. And can they be both through the have to be confident. Be protective or can a guy be over protective wall showing an insecurity. Does that make sense. I i mean there's definitely like a level of of protectiveness that you want like if someone's being an asshole you when they come to your come to your rescue classic thing but there's definitely like if i'm doing something that's totally fine normal and they're getting like overprotective about it. Then that's that's an insecurity thing that's like a trust problem so i don't know It just really. I really don't ever want to say like this is what i want out of a relationship or like. This is the kind of person that i want. Because i don't know until i meet someone i've definitely had a type. I your physical type or personality like both. I like like not like super super muscular guys but like tall pretty muscular like like guys out really like to workout in play sports or whatever Athletic guys and then. But i just ate a lot of youtubers internet boys and they cooked up with a lot of ways are they generally athletic. Yeah my friends. Make fun of me so much like it's insane. They make like the butt of every joke. But yeah. that's my type. I i would love to move on from that. I'm saying like. I only want to date those kinds of guys but i just i just my main thing is i just want to be obsessed with someone because it has to inspire me but what if we what if i told you because we've learned this on the show that sometimes the initial spark is a red flag. Not necessarily. that's why that's why. But how do you how do you. How are we going to get you to know. The and i don't know the i don't necessarily have an answer because i love that. I wanna be a i. I'm i'm obsessed with my girlfriend. I'm one hundred percent obsessed but at the same time. Like i definitely didn't feel that spark at first probably because i was kind of void. I don't go out with them again. Like i just don't i don't wanna waste time and i don't i you have to be obsessed away. I'm also like when. I go on dates and stuff like. I'm i'm really really sarcastic. I'm i i like to fuck with people and like field out a little bit and like save really crazy things to see if they laugh or if they're uncomfortable using try god yes so i. It doesn't necessarily have to be like that crazy spark but like i have to know that they're going to be the kind of person that i can get along with him. Be weird and psychotic. With so. And i i i don't have like different personalities but there's a lot of like i can be really really emotional but i can also be just. I just wanna have fun a lot of the time. I need someone that can kind of handle both of those things. And i'd like to feel people out. And a lotta times. I'll they just aren't we're not by being like that and i'm not going out with them again so obsess right away. I might be obsessed right away but they ought to at least have that thing that thing that you heard dick someday like you know ten years from now or five years from now or three years. You're going to whoever you end up with your. You'll be surprised you'll be like i never would have thought. Do you like that idea or not. You don't like boring and lame that i like. Well no. there'll be exciting you. They'll be who you know boring exciting. And you're saying that. I'm not going to have. Yeah but you're gonna end up with someone really boring record. I did not say that. No i'd i'd like for example like i used to always women who are kind of like what you're describing like. I love to challenge right. So i would equate that to right off the bat. Just i'd love those little games. And they would kind of challenge and i kind of took that as the challenge so to speak and so much that i didn't realize at the time but like their challenge was kind of like challenging my ego and so then i would get attracted to the challenge so to speak rather than them and then like for example like she never did that. You know. it wasn't boring at all but but it wasn't like stupa game. It wasn't the games and the challenge as they relationship evolve was more like just gonna conversations and then when that when she would challenge about something and say either. This bothers me or i think you could. I don't like how you did that etc etc became less competition and more of like i got felt better about it. I don't know but it was. Just it was. I just saw differently. You know and i. And i had the same girl twenty different times. You know like we all like we do that like it's normal and you always tell ourselves like no a friend and everyone's like no it's different hair-color really And i wouldn't even date different hair. Colors would that's Couple of blondes All right this has been great via before we let you go down to play a fun game called. do you know me sure. Don't obviously so excited.

Imagine there's a fan and then you described yourself to a t. woman whose dad designs a dog toy. Let's call it a glong and let's just imagine if you will that she studied reptiles and maybe going to study reptiles again and go to say australia. Leoni place you've been so you're not fooling anyone. Brennan it's clear that that was your way of telling me you're a huge fan and you just were too embarrassed to say it. I think yeah. Got you what i want i would want. I have to say when i was over in australia. I love those animals that just sort of hang around. You know like your slots or year. What's the one that wallas.

"Be a son. You need to talk to somebody. And i'm a big believer in therapy and online therapy can help. It's affordable it's available. It's very private better. Help is not a crisis line. It's not self help it's a professional therapy done securely online. I've talked about this a lot in my life. I am a big believer in verbalizing your problems. Not keeping it all locked inside and constantly meeting fans in fact just the other day i was leaving the largo theater and one of the fans very lovely. Young woman was telling me that she had had problems with depression. But she hears me talk about it and It it encouraged her to get some help and It's not just me. I think anyone who has a megaphone who talks about these issues is getting the word out that you can have a much better life than the one you're having now and there's no reason to suffer alone so it's all very easy. Fill out a questionnaire to help. Better help assess your needs and match you with your professional licensed therapist and then you start talking to a therapist in under forty eight hours so this can happen. Very quickly You can schedule secure and let me make that clear secure. Weekly video phone or even live chat appointments and these therapists have a broad range of expertise. And that's expertise. That may not be available to you in your area so this is we're better help can really benefit you so log into your account anytime. Send a message to your therapist. When she get going better. Help is committed to great matches. So it's easy and free to change therapists and that's very common. Not everybody finds the right therapist right away. It's more convenient and more affordable than in person. Therapy and financial aid is available. So take the step and help yourself. It's really important.

"Maybe they what are you saying. Is that if you got into a fight with your four foot long python and the only way you would die as if you decided. What's the point. Yeah okay so if so if a if a four foot python attack is combined with severe depression venue it. That would be the end of right any fine. Okay so you just keep making a weird. Sony is very pregnant and you're super empathetic right now. She said i come from a family. She said i have a mom. A dad and an older brother went. She just described the most common nuclear family in the world. And you went. Oh my family. Though god's sake she said i come from a giant irish family of six people with kit if brennan had said i mean if brenna headset brennan. So tell us a little bit about yourself. Well right now. I'm wearing sneakers. You'd have gone off me seekers pillows for the fee brenna. I want to know a little bit. Tell me about your dad. I'd like to know about the data. I think the data is often the key psychological key. I knew he is with me. If you're listening pop you know what you did. Go ahead not listening. My my dad works for a company called the conch company. If you've ever heard of it they make dog toys and cat toys and things like that. You're kidding. I know kong and so he designs a lot of dog toys. So i let me explain to our listeners. In case they don't know kong is. It's almost this kind of three dimensional triangular shape but it's rounded like snowman a cone and then there's a hole in it and you put a dog treat in it and the genius move behind it. It's kind of sick and sadistic but it works. Is you throw in the middle of the lawn and your dog training over. He knows there's a treat in there but he can't get added so we spend hours hours trying to get the treat out. That sounds awful. Well that's what kong is an hong works. Yeah works what is it. What is it supposed to do. It's supposed to keep mind busy. So like maybe have separation anxiety or something. When you leave the house you could give him the call. It keeps them busy. Keeps their mind occupied while you're away things like basically look if i told my older brother. Neil there's a strawberry rhubarb pie in that room. But i locked it. And you're not gonna get in there. And i took away all of neal's tools. That's basically what it is. That's what kong is and neo was just pawing at this door. I'm sorry but my my brother doesn't know how to use his fingers. He just positive but anyway kong is kind of ingenious. It worked with our dog for a while. And then i think our dog one online and ordered an exacto blade and just and just chopped up the kong and got the treat out that. Yeah so but it's good for your dad see. Your dad works for that company. He works have you noticed something. Your father indirectly with animals and your dreams work with animals. Yeah and it's also kind of a cool creative job. And i do art and things like that so i get that from him but my mom also had a degree in graphic design. So i guess it's a little bit come from very smart family support for conan.

"Meet brenna brenda. How are you good to see you get to see you as well tell us Semi i have so many questions for you brennan. Tell us a little bit about yourself. I see you like the color purple because the wall behind you is painted a very dynamic purple. yes it is well my name's donna. I'm from louisville. Colorado and i graduated with the degree in biology studying herpetology which is study of reptiles amphibians. Study of herpes. Used for a second what everybody thinks. Well it's not the i joke. I've made that everyone else has also made So herpetology study of reptiles thousand. And that's what you studied. Do use that in your current life. You use the fact that you studied reptiles well during college. I went and i studied abroad in australia. And so that's the home of the best reptiles amphibians in my opinion and. I'm sorry. I'm a proud american so now i think we've got the killer. I don't like this. I go to other countries for the good reptiles countries so much you marry them. I'm sorry i snapped you brenna. I'm i'm really way to keyed up. You went of course. Of course. I've been to australia and i love america but i do think australia has the better reptiles. Yeah there's definitely really cool. But anyway so then. After i graduated i worked at the cornell abattoir nephrology and back in australia though and i was studying birds so that was a different thing. But it's not. Technically what i do for work right now. Do you feel like you've betrayed the reptiles to study birds. Well some people say that birds are just like modern day dinosaurs so they're basically ripped out but not really I don't say that at all the reptiles their birds. So i don't care what some people say who are misinformed took the wrong message from jurassic park any who. Here's what i'll say you've studied these things. I'm very proud of you. Because i love meeting young people that are learning and studying and just aren't on tiktok all the time. You know eating their gummy gummy. We'd yeah but you are actually have studied things. What do you do now. So i work for a really cool nonprofit called reverb and what we do is we work with touring musicians and bands to make their tours. More environmentally friendly for you know very cool idea kind of combined science and my other love of music and art and things like that. That's very i like that. Because i'm i love music and i think it's important to take care of the planet. So what kind of things if you were. Let's say. I was going to go out on the road with my band. The bad clams and we were gonna perform our newest album taken it to the limit and we were going to go out there. I'm just making this up. But i'm out there with my band bad clams and we're doing our to the limit and i want to do a tour. How would you advise me to be environmentally friendly. So there's things that we do like front of house and then backstage backstage. We do things like make sure. There's recycling and composting all basic stuff. But also we have fans come so a your fans at the bad clans would come and they would basically be volunteers and they would volunteer for an hour. Give their time talk about some cool environmental things that we're doing. Maybe sell some water bottles to raise money for some local nonprofits. And maybe we have your tour. Bus be powered by environmentally friendly. Aeko fuels owner. Here's the problem bruna. If you know what my fans are like especially fans of my bands the bad clan. What are they called the your fans there called clams or clan heads. Whatever when clem heads show up at my show there all smashed on molly so when you try and get them to gather round out by the bus that burns french fry oil and has a rainbow painted on the side. They're going to be like screw. This man bad clams bad clans. Bring out the band and they'll be spinning and jumping around and playing hacky sack. There's no hacky sack pillow. They'll think there is so. That's the problem is i think sometimes rock and roll and environmentally conscious meetings. Just before rock show may not mix. Do you ever have that problem. Well we work with a pretty diverse man of like artists of different types of genres and ages. And things like that and we haven't really had that problem. I think a lot of it has to do with that. These people get to go to the show for free tier and then they get a go free. I see what you're doing free anyone will show up and they'll do as they're told. Yeah that's pretty cool. Why like what you're doing. Do think your love of reptiles is if we're gonna come back into the picture you think you're ever going to get back to reptiles back to your your true passion. I hope so. So i hope to go to grad school in the future and maybe get my phd. You're trying to save up for grad. School is at the idea. Yeah but you're working for a nonprofit you paying you nonprofit. Yeah they are you to st man who go to wall street and buy some bitcoin. You know that's a lot of science jobs are fully funded when you go to grad school. You don't have to pay a whole lot right. that's cool. i applaud. You and i applaud. What you're doing and i think it's very cool. I do too. I really think you seem like a good person. Let's you're about what we've heard about brenna the herpetologist. We've heard about brenna the nonprofit eco friendly orchestra and band organizer. We've heard about that for about that brenner. But what about the real brenna. The flesh and blood. Brennan who lives and breathes. Who i'm speaking to. Now tell us about you. What do you like as a person. What kind of family do you come from. Who are you well. I come from a family of four. Have mom and dad and older brother. I've got to snakes and a tortoise and a dog. i like. I like sake of to snakes. What kind snakes do you have. I have a ball python and a borneo short tailed python. Caen attack you and kill you now. I wouldn't think so they're about four feet. Loa wouldn't find thinks. I wouldn't think so music.

"That's the challenged people on when they fall back to those long held idea. One thing i i tell people and i just this the other day i said when you wanna know truth to put feelings on the bus in feeling so you can't let feelings affect it because truth will be true whether you like it or not at the end of the day so you have to put how you feel about it aside. That's the first thing is second thing is look at all things our governments in busted on lying to us about for years so if anybody thinks you can trust them on anything in even in the sense of down to the details of Something like this was going on. Of course it would have been shut down or someone would have known no. There's so many avenues of the government that know about it or tied into it even with your politicians snow. Many of them are all tied into the same thing. It's hollywood. it's corporations it star athletes it's government. They're all tied into the satanic cult. Going on that's why it's been allowed to happen and you You said that there's two. There's two types of people that you've come across there are people who are participants. There are people who have kind of traded their silence for whatever. Success was gonna come their way just by you of them keeping quiet about this. These goings-on yeah absolutely. If so we have to understand it. Leaves in the last thirty forty years for hollywood in how it works. Is that if you make a name for yourself whether it's as an actor or actress producer director a big agents. A publicist whatever. It is across the board. But if you're a lesser urges high up in in everyone knows you've had tremendous success. You didn't do that without a trade off you just you did it. Unfortunately that's the way that industry workshops. So what did you track. There are some who are involved in this. A said yes. They sold their soul. And it's going to be more people than people think realizing gonna blow their minds but for those who weren't revolves. There's a lot of people are those who know they seen it. They're like. I'm not doing that but they were pretty much told. Keep your mouth shut or alleyway not have a career will your family. We'll go after you. you'll be done. So they they. They live in fear. They keep their mouth shut. They don't say anything then there then you have those two. Maybe they haven't seen.

Disney+ streaming service gets a new name, logo, and more confirmed content

"You know, I I've been wondering since Disney announced the streaming service, and this, you know, this deal with FOX going, you know, apparently going through, you know, what would be left for who with the Disney streaming service launching. But now that we know that the Disney streaming services going to be split up into right now five categories, National Geographic, Star Wars marvel Pixar in Disney that doesn't seem to include like ABC in the other like, you know, TD networks. I mean that Content's probably going to go on Hulu, not that anybody said anything about that. But. Chris I'm wondering, you probably watch more content that both mean been combined. Are you nervous? But what's going to happen too? I mean. Maybe you know, I don't think never happens now like Hulu content just going to go up in smoke. The way film struck is unfortunately, but yeah, I'm not really sure I mean, you know, I do like Hulu, I don't mind the interface so much. So I guess it's it's really a wait and see sort of thing. What do you think about the original programming on who is thus far? I haven't seen a lot of it. But the the stuff I've watched I liked I really liked Castlerock. I've loved the looming tower, which is another one of their shows. So it's they're slowly building their own lineup. It's not quite as good as net flicks yet. And I don't think it's quite as buzz about like, I really like the show they made call the first about going to Mars with Sean Penn. But I haven't seen anyone talk. I really don't know if they're having as much impact as they should be. It's weird for me, the Hulu original programming fuels more like network to login than it does like cable or premium like cable programming like Netflix, and, you know, aim see in the HBO that kind of stuff Ben do you have any experience originals? Yeah. I mean, I watched the Handmaid's tale. That's the big one that I've seen every episode of that one certainly doesn't seem like something that looked be on network TV. But I think. Really? I don't know for me. I haven't really watched much of their original stuff beyond that. I've seen some of the episodes of the Mindy project, which Hulu saved after NBC cancelled it, but yeah, I haven't really gotten a chance added a bunch of stuff to Mike you there. But it's sort of like the the third or fourth thing that I check through when I'm looking to watch something I'll I'll go to my DVR first. And then I'll go to like Netflix, and then check down to, you know, HBO go or something like that. And then go to Hulu, and so, yeah, there's still a lot there that I haven't something my teeth into yet is hint speeds tail the the loan esteem show original show who at this point. I can't think of anything else I can have them. And I can't think I mean Castlerock had a lot of hype around it. But I don't think that's like prestige. Yeah. That's not going to be. I don't think we're going to see a lot of that with the word season and stuff that. Yeah. It'll be interesting. What happens to? Who and also wear Twentieth Century, Fox falls into this. Because we don't know, you know, we we've heard that wants to keep this Disney streaming service this Disney. Plus, I don't like this name had been. I know Ben you like it. But like what does that even mean Disney? Plus, it's like more than Disney. Yeah. It's I don't know. Google. Plus to me, isn't that like a thing like Google, plus or my remembering something wrong that was a thing. Thing. Of. No, it's a. I'm wondering if Twentieth Century Fox could, you know, become the six brand in that Disney streaming service, or if the the FOX content might somehow fall into who in some way, like is that too is it to adult is it above the family friendly threshold, then Disney wants to keep on the streaming service. Yeah. Like would they include some of that stuff in the Disney category? Because that you know, the just the word Disney sort of implies family friendly. So yeah, I can see what you're talking about there that might be a problem. But then it's Disney. Plus, so it could be more than just Disney. Right. Yeah. Disney after door to that. Time..
