I don't know what I'm doing. I'm embarrassed to be sitting here at a table. I you know I love it because I can tell. You're making the food that you make. Yeah the reason the food like resonate so much for me is first of all it. Looks real that's a big compliment but then will your co you cook but then also I really connect with the way that food works in this dynamic. Yep which is like so much about what really food is in in my life that I've learned now like like the age that I remember my mom being. You know in this weird life cycle thing. It's like how we are together rate and that's like how you're together with your people but then sometimes it's just like how you're together with yourself so when. I ate the buttered hollow with the Salt. Yesterday it like restored me. It was like it was like this moment. All these moments. That are like the pleasure but also sustenance but also just like time out or a creative process but then the way it works between your character and your kids especially in the season finale. I'm not spoiling 'cause like season. Three's out go get it. Oh Yeah but there's a lot of cooking in the finale. Yeah like the way that you use that Chile. There's like when you're making the Chili. And it's a way to Lake Lor. Yes Frankie Laura Frankie back home and it made me think about you know just basically like bathing a wild animal like a fear of getting a feral cat to trust you again. I know but that's like what food that's that connection. And then I give it to her and she just showed me. Why would I want that? I ate it and I go. Don't leave the Thermo Fisher thinking like are you going to trust her with that. Thermo Stanley like what people what those people do. And I'm talking about teenagers. Yeah they will leave something in a thermos fall sold the Thir Alekseeva thermos could explode. Yeah it would like you found it the day before. You're the one who act a fun. Job Of opening it and it explodes in your. I mean have you had that. I have my God mostly with smoothies. But like how long has this smoothie been making Kabukicho in a sealed like a hermetically seal and then? That's it's like this cost thirty dollars. Yep this contained. That drives me crazy. Sorry mom like we're not buying plastic bottles. Don't make landfill but now I gotta throw this thirty dollars. Stanley steamer thermos filled with flake smoothies. Sauerkraut how do you even make that? I know and then at the end went. Frankie comes back. Yeah and the and there's what's unsaid and she just Sam just yeah. She's a plate over impose the foil off and now it's funny too funny to me because it's like a salmon fillet. Yes I was like of all the things I love. I could just see you enlarging going. What'd she make? Oh Sam in March I'm like I'm reclined. It's laptop the also but at the end of the episode your daughters. Then present you with the K- yeah which is like I mean. I just started balling read but but later I realized it wasn't just the gesture but like they made the cake so that that role reversal of comfort and pleasure that they were out of time that they took and like that. They went through because that cake. There's the Easter episode to where you make the cake to give Mama which you put the giant chocolate bunny on top. I I did. I died when you're grading the character issue. Making a carrot salad is going to be carrot salad with raisins. Is it going? Oh She's carrot. Cake I I swear to God that whole thing was we shot that of course totally not anywhere near Easter prop. People couldn't find chocolate bunnies. Oh so I told them I said call eight or vice candy kitchen in Beverly Hills where they still make their own chocolate. They have the beautiful copper mill. And it's where Lucy did the assembly line. My Gosh really and I take everybody there. They know me they let me go in the back and their hand making oh my God their own chocolate. I used to go there when I was ten years old and spend my allow when we first moved to California spend my entire allowance on Honeycomb Choctaw Edelweiss so I said go there. They'll have chocolate bunnies of course and so he gets me three so I gave one to do. Yeah and then we broke one up and we had it in this container that we kept freezing and every once in a while we would give people from the crew apiece and I never crave chocolate anymore since I was a kid but this chocolate can taste when something is made in that way and the same way. Oh I feel like people talk about that with certain packaged foods at Lake. It doesn't like if you haven't had you know whatever a snickers Hershey's Kestler butterfinger in a long time and you crave it right and you have it now. People always say like Oh. It doesn't take as same as I remember. You know why it's not because of your memory they don't make it the same. That's the is not made the same as it was when you had that first childhood memory chocolate. They're not messing with that. So there was one bunny in the kitchen when I was making the cake and the enormous. It's like an eight inch tall bunny and so because you know forest my camera guys just shooting all around me and I just looked at the bunny and I was like And I grabbed it a put it on top of the cake and he had never done that before I ever. I was like chocolate. Okay Shockley funny on the white cake I was like Janoris move boom done. I'm going to write books about this moment. But it's this Carla. I got it okay. Talked about the the House.

"Have some like warm sweet Farro. Throw on maybe some sauteed apples or something. You Talkin interesting okay. I'm going to put that on my list. And Are you someone who always has homemade stock in your fridge freezer? I don't always but weirdly all have things like sometimes I have stock and I did make a roasted A couple of weeks ago. I think maybe the first time we talked about this stuff. I made a roasted poultry broth Broth stock whichever one it is. And I've got that frozen in like one and a Half Cup or pint-sized containers you know like not a giant quantity so when you saw it actually Through I through one of those into those black beans that I made the other day But sometimes I have been cooking liquids so when you cook recognize batch of brought beans and you eat the being saved the broth that can be as lots of ways question. You had mentioned that in your video of your famous being video where you're making patch trophies beans the shepherd marlow and sons I saved the broth and made those means. The Broth is delicious. Can I do with that brought now to do with the Leftover Brock? So you can use it to brace things. So if you WANNA make the brays and you don't have stock or you WANNA do mixture of stock and being brought to you can do that. So for instance. I have a pork shoulder. Yes by Freezer. By May lie said of using chicken stock. I can just port or the beanstalk which to your point as like it's got salt garlic got oil in there. Two bridges rich fragrant brought one hundred percent. And it'll you know if it seems a little too starchy or thick. You could use like part bean broth and part water. Just this seems like sec or I take some of that frozen Farro from my freezer and heated up in the Bronx and have like a Faro Soup. That's always going to say next. Oh my God. Mind or poached egg there. Why not you could even just heat up the bean broth with them. If you finish the dry beans that you made you could throw can be instant to that Will some Greens into it? You would have like a little beans ingredients. Suk Okay. I'm getting hungry now. I'm going to do that all right before we let you go You have to hungry boys. There's also Fernando in your house Up Are they. Do they have sweet tooths in? What are you doing in terms of desert projects or otherwise? How do you approach that? Well as you mentioned. I've got a another cookbook that I'm supposed to be writing right now. And I'm in the Desert Section so day today I'm making A glut of Banana Goulette. So we'll see how that goes. I know not your worst nightmare. I know I had also kind of stocked up on baking chocolate and that is kind of Nice because you can snack on baking chocolate but you can also chop it up to make say a chocolate chip cookie is you can melt that chocolate to make brownies or chocolate sauce. Question for those who are wondering when you say baking chocolate. What percentage of cocoa do you consider that I like Sir in the semi sweet bittersweet realm like sixty to seventy but whatever you lake you know what I think? Anywhere in the fifty to seventy is like perfectly nice for snacking on. I'm GONNA put that. I have a list going of things we need goodbye. But I'm GONNA put that Simone yesterday. Made those she just now and two thousand twenty heard about the Pan Bang chocolate chip cookies where she got very excited to make those so which he made them and they were pretty good. You know still a little too close. They really spread out a lot John Norris but anyway so. She marlin very excited about that last last night. I didn't think having like a little. Something sweet in the houses is nice right now. You know what I mean. Whatever gets you thrown anti tank. So all right Carl Music. Thank you so much.

Cooking for the Family During Self-Isolation
"Carla Music First of all how are you doing? I'm doing okay. I am thankful for a lot of things right now. One of them being that. There's actually space at home for us to not be on top of each other. So I'm very grateful for that because we're GONNA be together for a while. Yeah I mean we've had ESI had marlins moaning I have spent a really nice actually four or five days family time been very chill. Marlins been great and I appreciate it. A Lot I do wonder come like day thirty. We're all gonna be doing but so far I feel like everyone has been stepping up to the challenge. I think I've been trying to be understanding of of what's in front of US totally on the food front. We recorded a few weeks ago about how to sort of prepare for this and at the time it was almost theoretical abstract like. Oh Yeah Okay we're GONNA go buy a bunch of groceries and it almost seemed by okay shore and now that we're fully in it. I'm just curious to understand how you're doing. And like what has come to fruition. What lessons have you learned? What's working what's not working yeah. It's almost quaint looking back on that conversation now. I think we were thinking about it. Like Blizzard was coming. You know we were going to be home for a few days So one of the resets for me has been really thinking about how to incorporate both kind of a pantry that is going to help me build meals and keeping enough fresh food and freezer in stock for variety. And so that I don't feel like every meal has to be a project you know. That's a good point because some meals. You want to be a project because you want something to do. Maybe you want to get the family involved. And there's other times where I had bought a bunch of frozen little Ravioli. Sorta things at the Italian market and one night right. Let's just watch a movie and not to a big me. All of us for the freezer oil them up in Boston with some butter and Parmesan nutbag and that was delicious but was super simple in not time consuming. Yeah I think that's really important because when we have this idea that we're gonNA be stuck inside because of like a weather event or You know things that may be as humans in this world. We can relate to being stuck at home for a few days in not context. It's really fun to do a big project and cook all day but now that what we're really thinking about is no. This is normal. Life in normal life is at home. And maybe your kids are doing online classroom and you have to make lunch like you can't be kind of elbows deep in like a big project as best bully as a LASAGNA. When you know someone needs a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. So I'm just trying to think about that balance having some things that are hands off and take maybe a few hours to Cook Lake stock or a braise but really thinking about that as multiple meals down the line And then also balancing that with like you know I. I really heated some. I had some conference chicken okay. So like that's a personnel guy. No problem that I had but I had confused chicken in my fridge that I had made like several weeks ago and last night I decided you know. Use a couple can black beans Heated those up. I had a so Frito I had done a big batch so Frito so I have like little jars of so frito really easy way to get a lot of fast flavor. Made the Black Beans Chris. Step chicken thighs heated up. Some FAJITAS put out sour cream and we kind of had like a little Taco night. You remind me of a meal. Sonic who believes that nothing ever really goes bad in the frigerator I had to. I got to Jars Schmaltz out of the deal too. So you know what works we. We were in Zoom meeting about twenty of US earlier today Talking about story ideas and just that notion of talking about lunch that when we're all stuck at home we still need to sort of build some sort of schedule for ourselves and like actually take time to sit down at a table and eat lunch and that otherwise your day into sort of tumble for one thing to the next five thirty. And you're like wow. I'm still in my sweatpants. And I haven't had an actual meal or a moment to communicate with someone in a non-professional level or something I think that's really important. I thought was a great tip. Last time we spoke was a like. Yeah we want some fresh ingredients in our diet. It's not just pantry but then to be mindful about the shelf life of those items and so I we bought much stuff at a farmers market in this beautiful celery but after a few days celery Kinda rubbery you know it's Kinda limp and other well. Meanwhile denied these two big heads of cabbage. Stomach all right. The cabbage is fine. That's a cool place. That'll probably be fine a month from now but that salary I need to make tonight Ross is GonNa go bad so I ended up making that Tiger Salad. We HAVE ON DOT COM sites up to celery salons cucumbers a rice wine assessment addressing and that was delicious and a made it also with that the next subject again. We'll be touched on a few weeks ago but I did end up going to Dixon's Farm San meets. Which if you have a nice butcher shop near you. This is a great time to buy a bunch of cuts of meat. That if they can back you seal them and you can just immediately freeze up. Yeah Antibiotic a Little Flat Iron Steak. Which is kind of a thin cut and I just didn't even defrost it all the way. So it's actually you can slice it thin easier. That way. It made Chris Morocco's Basic Bogie Korean style Bogie Dot Com and that was delicious and easy and fast and it just felt like a sensible balance like right one thing from the freezer one fresh ingredient before it goes bad But you know it's again. It's sort of ingredient management. We're all GONNA have to deal with in the coming months. I think I love that Bogie Recipe. By the way I saw your picture. It looked so good. I think that one thing. I'm trying to reassure people as often as possible. There's a lot of food. In the grocery stores we got a lot of we kinda got bombarded at the beginning with this like Armageddon. Everybody was posting pictures of all the empty shelves and Empty Freezer case. And I think it really freaked a lot of people out and I think that if you're going to like a big box store that maybe had a huge volume of people very quickly that that was true there that that inventory was depleted fast. But I really do want everybody to remember that. There's a lot of food in the United States. And there's a lot of distribution that is one hundred percent intact and not to feel like you need to have in the house right now. A month's worth of three meals a day for the next thirty days I think keeping a balance of pantry staff fresh food freeze. You know free some meat free sausages whatever it is in Kinda keep those zones replenished but no one can fit enough food for thirty days in their fridge at once anyway and and and you shouldn't feel like you have to show taking it like one week ten days at a time but you know I am. I know being mindful about being in crowds and stuff like that. Grocery stores are open. Be Safe about it when you go in and you can buy food. Yeah thankfully I think we're we're in good shape right now Spatial management is also interesting. I am the roundabout story but I'm old friends from way. Back in the day with Andrew Carmelina who is now a race. That's Shafie done a bunch of restaurants in New York and Detroit And yesterday they had to shut down all the restaurants and at least temporarily lay off. Four hundred people Something that's the entire restaurant. Industry has been crippled right now. It's really unclear how that's all going to play out and who's going to have to make a living. Cetera ET CETERA And yet he was a literally clearing out their kitchens and a lot of food they were able to give away. He had like twenty loaves of frozen bread. He's like do you want some bread and one thing. I do think that a tip which I know you guys do in the kitchen which is nice. If you have a loaf of bread you can slice it up. Put it in a ziplock bag and then freeze that time you can take out one slice toasted instead of having to defrost entire low for whatever and eat it. All at once which I think is great advice the challenge. I'm having we have a small. Caesar saw Mike will can I? What can I fit in the Freezer M. I? Managing my freezer space properly or do I have a bunch of random stuff in there that I don't really need which your freezer thoughts I use my freezer really to freeze components for meals instead of like complete meals so for example everybody is talking about that all the frozen pizzas were. Gone Gel. Which is hilarious. Again I get it but if I went out and bought six frozen pizzas entire. Freezer would be full. You know is not there. They're not very efficient. Use of space But things like cooking grains freezing them in Ziplock bags. You confed a lot of that into the into the freezer timeout. You mentioned this last time. You're saying like if you have like Farro or something you'll boil it cook it and then you cool it yeah trey and then put in Ziplock Bag. Yeah and then when you unfreeze it so you can just unfreeze it. You could make a stir fry from it at that point. You could make a grand salad. Once it comes back to room temperature warmed back up and dress it with a little olive oil. You could add it to a brosse soup You could make a you know. Kind of ad hoc risotto out of it. You know Could you should. You should write a cookbook. I've thought about it. You could also reheat it. I have been This is a very like nostalgic delicious thing to me but grains can go sweet too so you could warm up some Grains that were cooked just with a little bit of salt water and even if they had a little bit of olive oil. Warm those up like you would Oatmeal a little bit of milk. Some cinnamon hung little drizzle of Maple resting would be like a delicious breakfast or honestly like if you need a little comfort food for

"Weren't has happened. Has it has happened over trump. It was it was terrible then. It's not great if Democrats would either now. Of course it's listen. The law is the law and we will have will fight when we know what the outcome is. We don't know what the outcome is. Also what exactly understand why he was saying gorsuch and Kevin would suffer. It's the Republican people who are running for Congress Republican Party people running for Congress that might suffer because people will not like the idea that I'm right to be taken away and how does gorsuch in cavenaugh suffer. What did he mean by that? Because they're the new. Yeah but how will they suffer court for life? Why it seems so inappropriate. Doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense that faced political consequences if you have a lifetime appointment. But he didn't make assemblywoman he did make the point though and everybody should know that if Russian rights are repealed a lot of people will lose their seat and he was warning them about that right but as he said it's his word. His verbiage was not the sound wave. Thought of Chuck. Schumer is like very even keeled and his commentary in speeches. Like I never think of him as a flame thrower. This actually really surprised me Just even the the yelling the way he's speaking And Him saying you won't know what hit you. Look when you have people like Steve. Scalise like literally been shot over politics. You GotTa be careful who you talk. We're living in dangerous times. We talked about how yesterday how I all presidential candidates of of a certain level should have secret service and I think that level of being on the debate stage like I think we're just living in really dangerous polarizing times so I think if you're Chuck Schumer and your ally in the Senate you have to be more careful regardless of how you feel about abortion abortion rights and. I think there's a way I think even for me being pro-life it makes zone out when I hear rhetoric like that like we can have a responsible conversation but when you're screaming and talking about you're not going to know what hit you if you disagree a good thing people to now. The good thing about this whole conversation is that it's reminding people voters you're not just voting for a president voting for Supreme Court. You voted yes. Certain rights being taken away from you you know so you have to keep that in mind so in a way it reminds people of the. Republicans have been much more effective at focusing on judiciary appointments than the Democrats. That's true. Oh yeah well. Obama was blocked during that time when he tried to do it. But in terms of galvanizing voter Energy enthusiasm it's true but now the pendulum swing the other way where I think people are waking up to the fact that these appointments. We'll have very very real consequences listeners. Yeah Yeah and but the thing that I've always been knocked out about when it comes to the Supreme Court. Is You just never know with them? You know everybody's saying Justice Roberts. He's just always going to vote that and he's Do Away with lifetime appointments for Supreme Court justice..
"pamela adlon" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"Season. Four where you have. What could be a stereotypical mom of three kids moment? I'M GONNA pull this car over but in the scene you pull the car over because you're elderly. Mom is just going crazy. It's not it's your mom. Yes I get this. Yeah it's a it's a thing. I guess they're calling my generation the sandwich generation. And it's another way that the show has really changed my life and been therapeutic for me because my mother used to drive me crazy. Yeah she'll tell me the same story over and over please. Don't talk about horizon calling you know and go into the store and she went to the how many doctors visits and everything and it used to make me. WanNa tear my hair out and then one day. I'm sitting there looking at my mom. I'm like Oh this is funny. Yeah she's funny. Yes if I just get out of my own way And I look at it for what it is It changed everything. And this is the thing that kids don't realize until a certain moment. Somewhere in their twenties something clicks and you say. Oh my God. My parents were fully formed human beings before I got here. Yeah it's amazing right. Yeah it's something that you know. I feel like if my show was on any other network. It would be like you know. Sam's you know dealing with her mom her kooky mom. She's dealing with her terrible kids. When will ham find love like that is so the opposite of what the show is just human interaction and just nothing is cut and dry? Yeah and no one is exactly a hero or a villain. That's right sometimes. The daughters are total a holes times. They're the voice of reason. Yes sometimes SAM is the best mother in the world time. She's yelling profanities at everyone. And that's life but it takes a certain level of self realization to get there like what in your life brought you to a place where you're able to say in your life and in your work. No one's cut and dry. Everyone is complex. Everyone can cause like it'd be really easy to make a show with stock characters. I feel like life experience and all of that but really might kids really you know because they are incredibly thoughtful completely conscious people and when they say mom don't do that you don't know their story And they're very fair and right minded With the world and with other people not with each other and me now but I don't know what my life would be like if I would have. Survived This long It what they have given me is just endless. And the way I I look at my life is really. My kids have really fueled that. I mean I kind of always. Was that way a little bit speaking voice. Which always like that. You know you've mentioned a few times out that you are you're the carrying one. You're the mother you're the nurture that you're the one who takes care of the people. Why do you think that is because like I feel like I'm a decent human being? I'm not that guy I'm feeding you. I'm not hosting the Party. I will show up. I will drink your alcohol but I'm not the I even brought you these candy. What's that about I love it I what's it about? I don't I guess it was something that was always in me like if I was at somebody's house I do their dishes. Like if what I know it was your mom. I WANNA be more use SAM. I'm just literally do my own dishes. I'm not giving up the check. Schorr all come over. I would like a little more of that but I think that I'm Yeah sometimes it's too much really. I liken it to the scene of Whoopi Goldberg and Ghost. After the ghost leaves her and she goes and she's sitting there she's exhausted. Yeah you know so. It's kind of like that because I let everybody take a piece in. It is for me. At least it was interesting and refreshing to see in your character on the show a woman who is extremely successful in career driven and goal oriented and doing all the work but also still doing. I am the mother with the mini van. Picking the kids up the I am at home cooking them dinner. You're doing both or your characters doing both rights. Not In this way. That is Sheryl Sandberg. You can have it all. You're doing it all. But you're still like a stressful. It's a lot. Yeah you showing it really raw. Well I was in my life and I was you know shooting Calif- -cation or recording the tinkerbell movies or any of the other Disney stuff that I was doing and King of the hill and living this you know quote unquote Hollywood life. And then at the end of the day I would be like cleaning up dog and pulling the cans in and doing all the Muendane things and I thought this is so crazy. It's funny to me. I wonder if anybody else would think it's funny. But you know it so I went through that. And that's what I was able to put in the show. You know it's not like you can have it all but what I needed. When I was a young mom was other moms to share with me so when I was looking at the robot mom who was like making the Thing and the the casseroles the class and everything and I'm like Oh my God. How does she do that? I need to know and I always felt a little bit judged And I needed somebody to be abroad as among as all of it. Yes it looks like this and can I look in your kids lunchbox? I WanNa see what you made your head for line. Yes it's that simple so That's what I do with my show. Now that I hope that other moms and parents can see an as a woman.

"Pamela. We'RE GOING TO CALL SOMEBODY. Okay and we're going to hear what they have to say. Who is it well? This is Alex. Hi Alex it's on affairs. Hi Hi I'm here with Pamela Adlon. Oh my Gosh Hi Pama high better thing and better things there. You Go Will you tell us what's going on? Alex yes okay. So I've been really nice person my entire life and never heard anyone. I grew up in a Christian home and I did all the right. Things never use drugs. That sucks smoke. Nothing like I did everything by the Book Him. Got Married a virgin white and everything. And you know fast-forward fourteen years later we've kind of had like we're really good friends me and my husband. But we don't have like physical attraction which is crazy because he's not unattractive you know but anyway so We've been great friends and we have four kids and I home school and I get involved in things and just kind of forget about the whole physical thing. Because I'm like well I didn't know like that's a shame but it is what happens and I want to do the right thing. But anyway he met this guy at Church of course because it makes it more dramatic and they became really friends and I knew that I was in deep trouble. Because he's all the things right. So Oh my gosh anyway. So I kind of was not economical with my emotions toward this dude but I kept it secret and I thought I could handle it and then I didn't think he had any interest in me a little bit a little bit older than him but then one day. I don't know it just. It went from zero to one hundred in one day and boom. I'm pregnant and it. Kinda got out of control really fast and we both had really strong feelings for each other but we both knew that it was. You know like the wrong thing. We feel really bad about the whole thing and it's just been crazy anyway so. I guess I'd like Sede back on. How crazy this but my question is like how do I move forward to make it right by both dudes because the thing now is that my husband is willing to forgive me which I think it's amazing because we love our kids and you know. How old are your kids? Your four kids so my kids are thirteen and then two years less each one all the way down to seven you church people get. We do right. Young Man is always the Christians if what the Heck Churches Rock knocking Alex my God. So you're doing you're right. It's not about the worst. Because yeah you try your whole life to be perfect and then boom anyway so the other guy the guy is he in a relationship does he have kids. No no no. He's not and he. You know like there was a point where there was like a crossroads where my husband was like not decided he's like. I don't think I can do this and he. He didn't tell me like he had feelings from it kind of happened leader and so I felt like okay. Well you know I. My kids are devastated. You know my oldest kid was really good friends with him. He Potter Music. And all that stuff and so the cat's out of the bag. Everybody knows everybody knows. All my friends dropped me like basically it was like excommunicate. Kado you know well so it was really hard and honestly like it's been super lung nine months but I just WanNa do the right thing. I want the guy to be able to see his baby right. Like I don't WanNa keep hiding live and you know but then I also want not to make my husband super upset so I can't really push for you know what I mean like. I'm not the hand of whatever he wants to do. But then I'm like I also feel really bad because I did this. Everyone you know. Wait a minute. I hear a lot of Guilt from you wore. Yeah I. I was also disciplined by guilt by atheist parents. Which is take a hard thing for me to work out but when you preface your story by talking about how good you've been it makes my heart ache for you a little bit. Because I don't want you to think that you're bad at all you know like I. I just don't think that that's a place to kind of grow from has right. But I don't like that you feel like this is your I mean. We're all fallible and you know you have a beautiful baby growing and you have this crazy story but I mean this is like so you haven't had the baby yet no I'm close but So and so. That's kind of terrifying too. You know 'cause I don't know how the dynamic is going to be in. I don't know how we don't have all the details ironed out on on what we're GONNA do sure and that's okay. I think things will be in flux. I it's definitely worth some healthy lengthy conversations but also you won't have everything figured out ever you know none of us will because things will be influx when the baby's older whatever like it'll just be constant yeah. How does the baby's father feel well? He's really devastated. Because you know he he's not like a deadly guy that doesn't want to like when we found out you know literally were just crying and I was like. Oh my gosh out of this happened. And but he's not the Kinda guy like oh well you guys deal with or whatever he really wants to be involved with the baby even if it means you'll never see me again. Whatever you guys kind of in love with each other I mean you said he was a lot younger. Younger men tend to fall in love. I know and that's the thing like nobody could believe it. Because they're like who wants to lady that have four. You know like even my husband was like I just can't believe like why would he what we will do that. That's a whole other issue. Adult take out in a second. But he's really sweet. He's just I mean. Obviously he's hurt so he's GonNa say rain. Gosh you're wise. But anyway so he wants to be a part of the baby as much as he can. But are you guys still still seeing each other Nakas when it'll happen My husband just took a job like cross the country and we moved in a Zapping zips up and we just left everything. It was like overnight pretty months two weeks later. We're gone. Oh Boy Oh my Gosh you oh man. So you're in this place of kind of of solitude that is tough. I'm sorry I don't know a single person here and yeah so my family also like there now coming around 'cause like the due dates near and they're we'll find you know the baby's coming so we gotta well. I was Gonna say that to you. Alex that might give you some solace. Is that the baby is a rebirth renewal and also will be the death of this bad feeling like the baby is coming and you guys are all welcoming. The baby into the world people aren't going to hold onto that shit. The kids are going to lash out at you. It's always going to be a thing in between your husband and yourself right. You know it's about you having the discipline to be able to raise this child and you know your other kids who are thirteen to seven. But you know if you're not into your husband anymore that's another thing that you might need to look at. We're trying to make the best of things obviously like it's really new and At some point. We'll do some like counseling. And you know do all that stuff so you guys moved specifically because of this if there was a job opportunity or it was you know it was because of this because when I like obviously I wasn't planning on living the double life like I couldn't even hold it in very long and I told him I was like I gotTa tell you the worst thing ever and it was like even remembering mixing have contractions. Oh I think it's really strong. I think it's very noble. An amazing appropriate probably that you are so complementing torture husbands but moving away from your community with four kids with a fifth on the way that feels just a little the. That's you know. I just hope it wasn't punishment. I hope that he just that. He means his forgiveness. It was it was because not trusting her and it was friends and family. He punished everybody by moving even though he has every right to be angry. Freak out you know quitting himself because not you know what I mean like you lost his own community and Shit but was there like that decision feels like that. Come Out of shame from his perspective like he's too you know. I think it was more fear because you know when I told him everything he asked me everything and I I will screw it. If I'M NOT GONNA keep lying to this man I was gonna tell them everything and it's going to work out then he has to know the truth and I've been telling him for years like I. You know I feel only. You're not trying that and nothing ever worked out okay so you you were reaching out to him. You were clanging bell before this happened. Oh I I've been doing this for. But because and like in the great scheme of things he's a great guy like I have no excuse to be like Kay by you know but And my kids. I mean just like my kids are everything so how you door him. I'm thirty five. So my young. Yeah I got married at twenty. Oh Man oh so the okay. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. What does your family think my Mama's like business and she's really upset and she's like you know she's just really disappointed. You know because I was her star child and you know and now I'm so. Are you going to stay with him? For twelve twelve more years because your seven year old will be eighteen and twelve years. Like I think I'm doing the math because yeah life is short. And here's the thing you know. You have to do the damage control. So where are you now? This is where you are now. Everybody is pissed off at you. Your kids right. Feel like they're never going to forgive you beating yourself up day in and day out. Oh Yeah but you were saying to him. Look at me man. I feel lonely. I feel side. I don't feel like you're pointing your engine. Nothing's coming in my direction. You made your mom upset but your mom if you sit down with her and have a conversation with her. You said your mom was a single mom right. Yeah she was. You know she's eventually going to come around. This baby is going to heal your community. Oh yeah I mean actually literally like. My family apologizes by buying gifts. So I've been getting gifts in the mail the last week so I know that that's all right. We like we love. You still feel like you should do something as simple as having like a town hall and saying Okay Everybody Rodney because it was very lonely and he fulfilled a lot of needs now. I'm having a baby. Can we just? I'm sorry I'm sorry I don't know man already said I'm sorry so many times that I'm like guys. Listen a totally. I mean it's if people need to like whatever vent their stupid shit and your husband is one thing but other people in your life passing judgment over and over again. That's that's like a red flag in a person I think. So maybe be wary of some of those people because we all have. We're all guilty. This is so interesting because this reminds me of. You know you don't have a secret. Yeah here's the thing. You don't have a secret child. Everybody knows about it now. The cats out of the bag fucked up you know and then the crazy part that was talking about is that your husband was like why do you want your ass? You're a mother of four you. It's like Fuck You. That is exactly what you were saying to him. You were like hello notice me. And that's the thing that came back from him you keep saying he's a great guy but he. I mean he just couldn't believe that somebody like usually younger guys want you know like somebody you know what I mean you know. They want money's compatible. That's all you know like it wasn't it wasn't about the physical that was like the end and it didn't even last that long and you know but Alex I think in might be hard to hear but I think what Pamela was talking about is a really fair point. You have shouldered the burden of your transgression. And that's appropriate. Yeah but I also want to be able to have some degree of perspective on all of this. Yeah you know like as the world will open up as time passes as the baby gets older. Whatever your family friends whatever they're going to be mired in their own shit so league. The gossip train will stop because it will be boring..

It's freshener head because we spent Christmas together. Yeah, now that I've practiced it like this, will you?

Why isn't there a meal being in? If you're in first class, because this was like a weird hot Sorry wait. There's holes in this story. So then. Runs to business class to get a five extinguisher. Goes back into the cockpit and they've smoke hoods whatever they have smoke hoods. WHO THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT! Yeah, and they! We made an emergency landing. Look to them.

That's how I felt so we made the emergency landing in Dallas and so the guy who was sitting across from me and the guy who was next to me and then the woman who is next to the guy, we all kind of trauma bonded on the flight and the way people remember it is because they called it. A celebrity filled flight. You know flight one to seven because there was A. A Jersey boy jarrod Spector was on the flight and Olsen twin. Oh, she was dating Justin Bartha, so it was Mary Cater Ashley Olsen Lovely Yeah and I was in the front, and I was probably the called the Pan Norma and drawn from Californ-.

Fine I have to take a flight in the morning bub-bubba and so then I kept in touch with me. She was the guy sitting across the aisle from me and that Christmas I stayed at his apartment. In Union, Square, and then we were all going up to Hudson with Janney and like everybody was going to meet up there and I was gonna stay at a bed and breakfast and so i.

And my brother was in the cafeteria, and he's a guy in his in his grade, fighting with his little sister, and then the principal had to walk me home I was covered in food, and I had a fight with eighth grade boy, because I thought it was really inappropriate, and I said to him. Why don't you get your own fluck in food? So maybe I would say that to the banana date steeler whatever took making RAPP. Tapped into. You Fuck Yeah. You don't even know how. Shit triggering. Funny. That's crazy. Yeah, I didn't like it. What did your brother do I remember seeing him across the cafeteria and him just being like wigged out. My brother and I are really close. I love him dearly, but we didn't get along growing up at all. There's two moments where he came to my rescue that I remember, and they were just like these moments of lake dizzy wooden, you watch those nature shows, and whatever labor the male lion suddenly comes tearing out from wherever the fuck. He's been to kill the HYENA. I wish that legs story in the cafeteria for only I think it actually listened once, but most of the time he was like he was your brother in the cafeteria..

Do it again here at Red Robin. We always give good phone. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Go back to have my mom. Off-camera was like amy. Are you eating ice cream and they say not anymore because I'm meeting frozen yogurt and I was hired because my face was full full face. My mom didn't want me eating full-fat ice cream. So that's a fun. Like Ninth Grade Locker Hallway conversation piece. Oh might not anymore like oh how do I shrink do it with chicken? I said what I told those guys when they had a heater Beata. I said deal with chicken due chicken next thing. I know those guys are doing it with chicken in. Thanks guys really want to be in the same retirement home. I know right. Let's retire together. Well yeah that bell. Oh my God. Chicken remember. Delete on read. Outside and somebody screaming check-in how old were you? I was like probably I dunno nineteen or something God when they first came out with chicken veal look it up on Youtube right now. It's hilarious okay. So now I WANNA. My middle name is not Fiona. I don't know why the fuck the Internet my middle name is. Fiona is is not is really. Yeah it's not paper. It's not because take it off all right. All right contributed to wikipedia. Now I deserve to set the record straight in my middle name is Dr. What is your I don't discuss. But it's not fucking Fiona Okay. So you weren't able to give to me examples of liberation during axiom but can you think of any for me? It was difficult for me to make the transition from. This is interesting because now I know what I can say to you. Okay my whole move in. The eighties was a boy. I was a boy I played a boy and night court like I was pretending to be a boy. Were you like a trouble? The law no like bull Richard Mall. Yeah he wanted to foster a kid so I pretended to be a boy. And then there's a big reveal at the end You know and I come out and address and that that always exactly exactly I did. The Red Foxx show and the whole show. I am a boy and then they find me at the end and resigned to Soto says I can spot my own species and so I did that. I did a movie called something special where I play a girl who wants to be a boy. So Seth Green cells me a crystal on the night of the eclipse. And I throw it at the moon and I wake up and I have a penis. I'm not kidding so this was all the stuff that I had in my early career. Every time I did apart they would even put girl in the title so like I played a character named Stevie and something and they wrote girl Stevie so people would know is just like this bizarre time fight so then when I went from that then all of a sudden you know when I had to do the girl Shit. That was hard for me. You know so like this. One movie that they had to put girl in. My name was called bad manners with Martin Mal and Karen. Black this crazy movie and we break into a house and I was wearing a towel and I was really young. I was like fifteen or something and the director said. Hey Pam what do you think if your towel dropped and we saw your butt and I was like what and I had to kiss this boy in the movie and he made me feel uncomfortable and I hadn't kissed a boy yet and so it was all of that kind of stuff that I guess. It was hard for me to get through because also I was a late bloomer and I didn't have a boyfriend until I was eighteen. And and then I remember I did a show called the heights in Vancouver. There was a time we were all doing shit in Canada. Yeah what was? I called the heights. I don't know how do you talk to an angel. The yes that's all I remember and so I had to like have kind of a sex scene with this guy and he he was like we had to find condoms and I felt very intimate and I also felt like wow. This is kind of like I'm I'm a girl like they're considering me to be a woman it was yes it transition for me you know and then kind of doing all of that stuff was just. I never really thought of myself that having to have any kind of sexuality on camera makes me incredibly nervous. It's probably for me. It's it's probably the hardest because I just don't fundamentally feel. I mean I feel sexy but that's a very it's an intimate feeling and remember dry doing seven seasons of California -cation of my God. Oh my God I like like I had this co star wants really handsome guy and when we had to kiss though it felt like I felt like he really didn't want to kiss me and we had to do it. You know whatever and it felt like I jokingly say to my friends whatever. The felt like trying to open up a clam with my mouth. We felt like not that I wanted to talk him or anything it. Just yeah. It's loose up baby. He sucked his lips in or something. And we see which and I was already feeling Unattractive Yahoo v Star so that ideas like. Oh my gosh. He doesn't that kind of thing. Haunts me. I'm getting a little bit better at it. But but a what. This is crazy because this is a very relevant thing. Because now they have intimacy coordinators. That's right and my friend. Michael Arnold was like the first person who did that. He did it for the wolf of Wall Street for Scorsese and he was the choreographer for Joaquin Phoenix and joker. But I was like the nudity whisper on California -cations so when people came in I would be like listen. Don't worry you're not gonNA do anything you don't WANNA do. I swear to God because I was everybody's mommy that's so nice though you know so then this season we've got scenes in a locker room and and stuff that's intimacy and my producer brought it up to me and I was like one hundred percent. I mean if I think that I'm above that because I'm the ultimate Mommy I've been running my set for four seasons. I know what I'm doing better than anybody no way so. I had this woman called. Ma'am was the coolest woman. Come onto the set this season. I had some kids kissing. I had some kids who had to be in bed together and it just made everything infinitely easier because you're just surrounded with love and if you think back to that scene that you had with that guy it's like God damn it if there was one other person who was there. Yeah hey how did you deal with your daughters? Like entering that world of heartbreak sexuality whatever it was because you you seem like you must have always had very open. Communication with them absolute. Oh please I was the mom. That was like okay. Everybody should definitely you know? If you feel like touching yourself you should. They would be like. I'm like but you should really do it in your great room. Only I did at one point having no G. string policy because I didn't WanNa fuck and see that I was like running the best little whorehouse in Texas. Everybody's walking around in fucking lingerie under their friends. I was like I don't WanNa see that shit like I mean it's not that I was like Sally Kellerman. And Fox's like you're like forty old midgets and you mean ones and you make me hate my giving the hate my abs and I remember Sally Kellerman in Fox's looking at Jodi foster and Cherie and all of them and they're all beautiful in young and she's and she's a single mom and I never like kind of connected those until recently and I was seeing my my house with like you know the girls and their their their bodies changing and then They're you know whoever was thirsty for boys or girls or whatever's going on but I grew up in a very. I'm sorry can't say conservative. My mother would kill my mom racing thing yes yes. Mom is like an atheist liberal but she oh sing -servative yes so fucking constrict. I could barely have friends over to hang out and so the new mom didn't have any good food in the house was just all fucking Shit. I know I never. I wanted to write a commercial streets. One time childhood. Please mom one fucking marshmallow anything. I don't need salad every night. Who's GONNA eat liver? Get me a dog so I can feed it the liver under the table. These are all true but so each daughter you know. I always joke that that my oldest daughter's the burnt pancake. You know. Because she's the first one and she's like thank you mom for instilling all of this stuff in me and then like you know the baby's like the one who was raised by wolves because there's just at that point. I had no zone defense three times over so he gets to witness you talking to your oldest daughter do get the fuck do your fucking Shit like really so. Yeah all the different you know. And then there. Of course. You know the stereotype. The girls with daddy problems we joke. We have a friend Harrison. Gideon my oldest. I was driving them and it was when their parents had split up to and so- Harris said we're just girls with daddy problems. Don't you want data and then I'm good. I'm all set but I'm learning with them. You know and I feel like I'm a better mom now than I ever was years strict. Mom Did she want you to wait until marriage? Oh you mean sex. Yeah nobody talks to me about anything. Nobody told me a fucking thing they just told me. This was my mom's sex talk. Don't shave your legs. You'll regret it for the rest of your life. Thanks mom anything else. Don't anything else. Don't shave your legs. You'll regret it for the rest of your life and I was literally the Harry's child you've ever seen does she have a point there. She just there was her you. She told me to put lotion on my neck. That didn't work. I my hair doesn't grow on my legs anymore. I could've used a sex talk. My eyebrows tried to grow together for a long time. Yeah I had a yeah and my mom was like do not whatever you do. Don't shave your eyebrows. Okay might be tempted. And so then of course. I went to the bathroom. And I fixated I got shaved them and then took like four years to like. It's keep me Shirley maclaine and postcards from the edge ever since the studio shaved eyebrows. Don't let them bury me without. My eyebrows came home from school one day. My brother was seventeen so I was fourteen. I came home from school and my mom was shaking with rage and it was like a whatever the whole strategy during that time of my life was still incorporated. A little bit was just lay low. You know. Just S- Lincoln be quiet. But my mom was shaking with fury. Because I didn't know why I said mom what's wrong. And she was shaking. She was like a prophylactic. Your brother's car a new that I should not ask what prophylactic was I had no idea and my mom later told me. That was the first time she'd ever seen a condom. But remember it being a whole thing like I was sent to my room. There was a whole like I don't know forty eight hours of intense discussion with my brother. I don't know what went on. I'm sure it was fun for him. We'll have to call them. Let's call him well. I found I found a condom in one of my daughters rooms and I freaked out. I was like what the fuck and and I I took it and I'm like this is ridiculous and I finally calm down and then I went back in the room and I put it back and I didn't even confronted with it you know and also I put it in my show in season. One that my character is. She's getting busy and I don't have a condom and I go into my daughter's room where I found the condom that I freaked out about and steal it. But here's the thing they. They had like a sex education class and they handed out condoms. So you never know you know what I mean so it just got to keep this bed mummy exactly but you would rather them have. Conduct anybody's fucking. Yeah completely. I mean I don't know what the fuck you're doing. Yeah and you become you become the mom like I became the mom that everybody came over to my house and like if kids were drinking and entitled Parents Though you. That's what I said to my kids..

"Hey dear listeners. Today's guest is the amazing actress screenwriter producer in after Pamela Adlon who you probably know from King of the hill. California -CATION, Louis and her award-winning better things before we begin the episode I want to tell you how grateful I am for all of your letters and feedback, I always knew the unqualified community was comprised of some really cool and amazing people and you. You continue to prove it to me so here are two of your letters, the First Jessica to Katie, who he called with fortune, teamster, Katie, im you or should I say I was you when I was nineteen. I got engaged to my high school. Boyfriend behind closed doors are sex. Life was mediocre. The household chores were incredibly one-sided me doing everything and his lack of maturity. Maturity was obvious. I was so blinded by the ring on my finger and a new last name that I ignored. All of these signs also ignored the warnings of my family. My friends bridesmaids. Even my maid of honor told me I shouldn't do it that. I listen of course not I got married at twenty soon. I resented him the house. WE BOUGHT IN OUR MARRIAGE ENTIRELY I. I hated being around him. Hated it. All I finally pulled the plug in filed for divorce after a year and a half. He seems surprised saying that I thought we were so happy like on unfortunate, said if both of you put in the effort, maybe you can turn things around, but be wary. It's hard I'd recommend holding off on the wedding to give yourself time to. figure out if he can make things right, or if you should leave the relationship, you'll feel so much better in the long run. my Ex husband would always say things like Oh in twenty years. This won't matter and I would cringe. Twenty years with him sounded. Dreadful should have listened to myself and to everyone close to me. Who Knew I wasn't happy before the I, do Katie. Katie my love and best wishes on this endeavor. It is so hard to be in those shoes I will say I am now happily married to someone else, and we have two beautiful children.
