A New Declaration of Dependence On God
"This, fourth of July we find our nation more divided than perhaps at any other time since the civil war. That's what happens when a nation abandoned God and Rejects Truth Colson Center I'm John Stonestreet. This break point. On July Fourth, two thousand and four Chuck Colson breakpoint commentary was entitled a New Declaration of dependence reading through it again recently I was struck by just how prophetic his words were as a student of history chuck not only understood the founding principles of our nation, as expressed in the declaration of independence, but he understood on what those principles were grounded. So what happens chuck ass when the foundations are rejected? What happens when religion? Truth and public virtue are all made non essential. What happens when citizens want the benefits of the American experiment without taking seriously what it requires of us will here's Jet Colson from July second, two thousand four. Fourth Celebrates our liberty and national independence. I get through every time I hear. The cannons blast that rousing finale of the eighteen twelve overture, and I got a lump in my throat whenever I join in singing America America. God shed His grace on the. Indeed God has blessed America this nation dedicated to the proposition that all men are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights has endured two hundred twenty eight years. America's the oldest constitutional republic on Earth. But all is not well in our land. When Thomas Jefferson Penn, the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence, he deliberately appealed the creator, or he acknowledged an overriding obligation to nature and nature's got, and he understood that ordered. Liberty is not just a subjective preference, but a divinely ordained condition for which human beings are designed. But. Over the last few decades, legions of skeptics have mounted a massive assault on these self evident Ruth's in prestigious schools in the halls of government, and especially in the Supreme Court. God is banished from public compensation. If a public schoolteacher introduce Jefferson's ideas and language into the classroom today, she likely be called on the carpet, possibly disciplined. This assault on God in public cultures severely damages our democracy. If God is thrown out of our history, we lose our basis for believing that individuals have rights and dignity in an empty universe. We have no meaning no value without God. There are no inalienable rights and no certain proof that liberty is better than tyranny or that life better than death. Everything's a matter of opinion and power. The references to God, the Declaration of Independence provide a foundation for moral argument within civil society and moral truths pervade our founding documents from beginning to end without God is the source of all these moral principles. The Public Square would quickly revert to the law of the jungle. Brutish power would prevail the week. The unborn, the elderly, the gravely ill could be quietly terminated. Much as I enjoy the anthems and fireworks more than that is called for on this July fourth. We need to confess our moral failures in our national sins, repenting of allies of. Killing innocent babies and the elderly. Renewal begins on our knees. It's there. We hear soul searching questions from God himself asking how long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked rescue the weekend needy deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Our nation's founding document declared independence from Britain. But with equal fervor declared dependence upon God expressing firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence. The signers committed the American experiment. Do their maker the spirit of seventeen seventy six was reverence and trust. So as we mark this solemn occasion, let us seek a rebirth of true liberty, which is possible, only when governed by divine law for without God, we could never have liberty and justice for

"The idea of conference on Ly College football in 2020 as a form of compromise or some semblance of a college football season. We can't in any walk of life. Expect the same. What happened in 2019 the way we are used to doing things. Everything is different. The world has been turned upside down. And McMurphy touched on that there. And we were a little bit ahead of the curve. Talking about that last weekend, and sure enough, we've seen two of the five power conferences come out and officially say the Big 10 in the Pac 12. But they're only going to do conference games in 2020 and I want to discuss that with you to start today's show at 855 to 1 to four, CBS 855 to 124227 is the number on Twitter You can find me at the Pony Express pony spelled P O. And I like my last name, and we're also all of us here at CBS. Sports radio. I'm not. I'm not a big fan of the way this played out. I'll just come right out and say it. I'm not hugely in favor of The way This is headed with college football. And my reasoning is I don't see any kind of cooperation. Taking place here. I don't see. The power brokers in the sport. Working together. And I've heard a few times insiders say. That all the conference commissioners and the athletic directors are constantly on conference calls and zoom chats with each other. If that were the case. If there was some semblance of unity. How in the world just one conference like the Big 10. I feel wanted after the Ivy League made its decision. I feel like the Big 10 which I think has a reputation. For having a little bit of a holier than thou attitude. The FCC. Their arrogance is rooted in we just kick your ass on the field. Saturday afternoons. We we let our football do the talking, and then our fans brag about it. The big 10. I think tries to masquerade around like they are the They are the authorities on this sport like they need to be. They need to be. A little bit of Ah, they need to uphold a little bit of a higher standard than the sec. Sure those teams are great, but we do it differently in the Big 10. I feel like there's there's definitely a big 10 were better than you. Attitude that's prevalent. I think the Pac 12 and that league has been awful in college football, but I also think across the board in college sports. They they try to push the student athlete agenda. They try to make it sound like they're football players still go to class. I think they're big on that hole. Allure of what they do. So it's not surprising that those are the two conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 that wanted to get ahead of this thing and say We're only doing conference games that way. If things really go south in a hurry. They can. They can point out while we were We did it before everybody else. We got to the moon first on this one. We didn't waste. We didn't waste our time. We didn't vassal eight. We didn't have an haw. We made clear decisions. But I think this is very short sighted, and it doesn't really make a lot of sense to me. Major Phillip, only CBS Sports Radio. Let me tell you why. This is one of the things I don't get and this is where the whole cooperation thing comes into play, Brett McMurphy said in that clip who covers college football If you want to follow somebody for college football news What coaches getting hired Who's getting canned? Who's playing who in a bowl game who's getting a contract extension? Who's leaving a conference for a new one. He's about as good as it gets. And I'd heard the same thing. Not that I run in the same circles as a college football insider, But I'm in Pittsburgh. Which I'm within driving distance of three schools in power conferences pit West Virginia is less than an hour away from where I live. Penn State is a couple hours away. So I'm around and I'm around. I know people that work in the Big 12 school. I have friends that work in the A. C. C. I have friends who work in the Big 10. And the point about guidelines being universal. And They're being a concern. That some of the schools that don't make us much money wouldn't be able to implement the same kind of testing and safety protocols. I believe that Israel I think That there was a lot of anxiety over okay? Were the big 10. We're going to hold Ohio State, Penn State Michigan to this standard. What is the matter going to dio? They've got a much smaller revenue pool to pull from Are they going to be able to do the same things? That are big schools Do Khun Bowling Green can't stay in northern Illinois. Candidate Can they uphold their athletes to the same standard from a health and safety standpoint? And we've got so many interconference games against them. If we expose our players to their players, and there's an outbreak, then we've got blood on our hands, so I get that part of it. What? I don't understand for the life of me, and this is Where I'm talking about cooperation and everybody working together. I don't understand how for one year There can either be some kind of realignment that takes place. Where the commissioners from the Big 10 Big 12 A. C. C. C. C. Pac 12 Notre Dame all get together. And they build a college football schedule. That is just a one off just a one year thing. And if they need to move team is in and out of conferences to make it work geographically for one year..

The tech behind MTA's fight against coronavirus
"Cases of covid nineteen are turning down. The threat of the coronavirus continues to loom over the city. I'm Rod Chang and this is your daily charge. With me as chairman and CEO of the MTA PAT Foy at thanks for joining me x-ray Ranch, Nasr meals, but more than a week since the city reopened phase one. What has ridership been like? Ridership has actually been a pleasant surprise. We knew we would get an increase comparing yesterday Monday of the fifteenth two two weeks ago before we increased service and the governor listed. Announced a phase, one ridership on subways and buses has gone up a total of three hundred eighty thousand customers. That's about two hundred, seven, thousand on subways, one, hundred, seventy, five, thousand, more or less on buses, three hundred eighty thousand people per day is the size of a pretty. medium-sized, transits. So we're we're pleased by that. We expect ridership to continue to grow obviously the summer months, and this is going to be unusual summer for new. York City and and the suburbs. And what ridership will do this summer is is unknown, but we expect continue to build and especially after after Labor Day assuming that you know New York City are phase. Two of the governors are newer Polish. So you mentioned those numbers. Nearly nine hundred thousand daily riders. That is you know off the highs of the pre coronavirus air where we're talking about millions rights so. Curious. There are still a lot of people out there concerned that they might get infected that there might be a second wave. For folks out there. Who still hesitant like what do you tell people to reassure them that? The Newark Transit System is safe to travel in.

We did a physical study about ten days ago, which indicated that subway riders ninety two percent ask appliance. We're updating that study this week. In the latest data, point is ninety five percent that's incredibly or the latest research from around the world, including a report a couple of days ago from Cambridge in ranch universities in the UK. Indicates. That masks are really important. The subways mass transit does not appear to have two vectors and creating the and Derek. In any part of the world. We believe that's true also in New, York nursing homes. Obviously meat packing plants and people's homes have been significant tributaries. Obviously, the public health doctors empty epidemiologist will figure that out to your point about mass, and how important they are curious how you are encouraging riders to continue where I, just I ask because I've gone out of the last couple of weekends, at noticed of among my soaks here in Long Island where I live fewer and fewer people are wearing masks granted. They're not riding. The subway were riding a train, but how do you? Encourage. There's no way to enforce it. But how do you encourage writers to continue to wear masks and to be more vigilant when it comes to social distancing question? Plan, so we've been distributing mask in the subway. Stations are starting last the last Monday June eighth when phase one started. We're continuing that we've got a robust messaging and communications campaign on subway cars on subway platforms on the website will be doing was starting a digital campaign on that, so the the mass message has been robustly communicated. We're GONNA continue to do that. We've got employees. Employees Platform controllers wear finders way finders were also suggesting to customers who don't have a mask. Go upstairs and get one.

Us Geological Survey stood up and said you can't do anything to that. Damn until you look at the material behind it is holding back a whole bunch of mercury and that was the very first time I had ever heard anything about mercury and the state of California and its role in the goal rush. Or how long have you lived in this part of the world? My family came to California as part of the Gold Rush. We were quakers. Escaping the east coast. Ten violent religious oppression moved out to become farmers I was raised in Concord California on that form and in one thousand nine hundred five. I married a farmer and we moved to Nevada county beautiful organic farm in a place called Penn Valley. Tell us about this county and just its history and the gold rush because it is a lot of history here. Nevada county was ground zero of the California Gold Rush. Far More gold was taken out of this county and specifically this river that we're standing above than any other place in the state of California. It's where the very destructive technique called hydraulic mining which is using power water monitors to to scrub mountainside. Looking for gold is where that was invented. They started to dam the rivers and convey that water over to these huge hydraulic mining activities. Which were recovering thousands of of gold but millions of tons of sediment not material here from Nevada county rolled down the river and kept flooding the Sacramento Valley and eventually the farmers downstream who are really tired of having their houses filled with all this debris sued and stopped the activity known as hydraulic mining. Was the connection between Mercury and gold. Tell us how that process works. Everybody came to understand that the very dramatic impact of hydraulic mining because it was blowing these huge amounts of sediment down the river. But people didn't understand. Was that before they use. Those hydraulic monitors. They would treat the cliffs with Mercury Mercury on the cliff. Pound the cliffs with water the water to wash down into sluices and in those sluice boxes were also filled with mercury. Why did they use mercury keep? Mercury helped enhance called processing. It has a unique ability to amalgamate or hold the gold. So little tiny flecks of gold. That might be smaller than an eyelash would fall into the pan. But they're just wash out unless they were captured by mercury. Mercury would grab the gold. Make it heavy fall to the bottom of the sluice. When they turn the water off. Miners would come through and suck that mercury out of the bottom of the sluice they would take the mercury put it in a hot place they would call retort it like think of a hot iron frying pan and the mercury sort of melting off the top or or training into gas off the top and at the bottom of your pan. You'd have sparkling gold. The problem is curious. Mercury is a very dangerous neuro toxin. And it's dangerous in a variety of ways so badly that the United Nations World Health Organization Amnesty of California have both named it. The top bioaccumulative toxic material of concern. Mercury is a neuro toxin. It affects the developmental human being so our ability to deform our nerves are heart or lungs. Our brains it creates Serious birth defects and people have focused on that for many many years but as research has been done we learn that it continues to damage us as adults. It seems to be causing problems with our hearts with our lungs and with our various different organs which accumulate mercury. So it's a known neuro toxin and that's strike one against it strike to is it bioaccumulates in our body. It doesn't really easily leave our bodies many of the things we take in. Let's take alcohol. You drink it and two days later. It's all out of your body not so with Mercury it stores itself in your body and builds up over time strike. Three is that this material does. What's called bio magnifies in the environment? So the most dangerous place for a piece of mercury to be is in water particularly in warm water. Mercury is taken up by the little bugs at the bottom of the food chain. They eat a little bit of it. It transfers up to the bigger bugs and then the bigger bugs and then the fish and then the humans or as we watch here today. The waterbirds that are flying around might pick up. Officiant eat it. They are eating a highly toxic potent load of mercury so much so that the lake. We're looking here like Anglo. Bright has fish advisories on it that advice that a woman of childbearing age eat not a single bass out of this lake fish mornings. I run along this Anchorman River. There will along the Sacramento. And then you go down to San Francisco Bay. The same warnings that so it's in fact the entire ecosystem. The mercury that is in the Delta is entirely from these legacy minds in the areas. We are the gold mines and sadly for California. We had a unique geology which led us have mercury in our state as well. The coastal range has the mercury minds. Whether it's the ones down in San Jose or the ones Tamales Bay or up over on the clear lake there are serious old legacy mercury minds which are contaminating the coastal range and the tributaries that drain from there into the bay or into the ocean where we are everywhere. There was gold mining. They use this mercury not only for the the hydraulic mining but also for the hard rock mines which dominated the landscapes for one hundred years and all of those continue to leak mercury into the state of California water bodies every time it rains
"Since one thousand nine hundred sixty. California has officially been known as the Golden State. And that's because as the plaque reads California's development and remarkable prosperity began with the discovery of gold humanities. Love of gold is fairly bizarre of all the hundred and eighteen elements in the periodic table. Gold is the only one which we humans have always gravitated towards gold was used earliest currencies. Gold joined us in marriage and was used to produce most precious artifacts. Maybe the secret to our love of gold is simply that it's beautiful and never tarnishes in eighteen. Fifty-three my father's great grandfather Henry. Cohn traveled from a tiny stelle. In what is now Poland to Hamburg where he boarded a boat and six months later. After walking across the isthmus of Panama Henry ended up in San Francisco. Henry Cohn was part of the Goldrush the largest mass migration in American history bringing about three hundred thousand people to California. It all started in eighteen. Forty eight when James Marshall found gold in his piece of land at Sada's mill in Coloma. The News of gold quickly spread around the world. At first the gold could be picked up from the ground but later on it was recovered from the streams and rivers with the use of panned. The gold rush peaked in eighteen fifty. Two and after that the Gold Rassoul getting thinner and harder to reach soon largescale and more environmentally damaging methods of traction cold hydraulic mining were employed. One hundred and seventy years later on the environmental legacy of the gold rush a significant and yet acknowledged as we'll discover in today's episode mercury which is a deadly neurotoxin was elemental to the process of gold-mining today large quantities of mercury from the gold.

"Today. We're taking a look at a quotes from Joaquin El Chapo Guzman. The once lead of the Sinoloa content in Mexico Gu's Mon- used his crime syndicate to sell billions of dollars worth of drugs. Boys one step ahead of the police. Goose Mon- escaped jail twice bride politicians and shed the blood of allies and foes alike in light of this. It's ironic that the notorious drug lord once said I know one day I will die. I hope it's a natural causes. Guzman allegedly said this to actor Sean Penn. During a secret interview for Rolling Stone Magazine Guzman supposedly wanted a Hollywood film to be written about his life. It's not surprising. Gu's mom believed his life was worthy of the big screen after all his rise in the world of narcotics has been nothing short of cinematic Guzman was introduced to the drug trade early. He was born in. Nineteen fifty seven in La Tuna a rural town in Mexico. Though his claimed to be a simple farmer it's widely believed that he grew opium poppies by nineteen seventy the fifteen year old guzman was farming marijuana alongside his cousins at only five foot six is small stature earned him the nickname. El Chapo which is Mexican slang for shorty dues. Mon- didn't let his ambitions mirror his size in the late. Nineteen Seventy S. He grabbed onto the opportunity to work for Miguel on. Hell sciutto widely known. As the godfather of Mexico's first nationwide drug operation the Guadalajara Cartel Fedex put goose man in charge of smuggling logistics. Who's Mon- proved himself to be a ruthless taskmaster? He went as far as murdering employees. If ever they were late with deliveries this show of strength paid off in spades when feliks was arrested in nineteen eighty nine a thirty two year old. Guzman received a choice piece of the former drug lords territory. With his little slice of North West Mexico secured Guzman's set up his own operation. Everything about the Sinoloa cartel was innovative and Malton. He sets up complex underground tunnels to ferry drugs across the border. Earning him millions of dollars and attention from officials in both the United States and Mexico in nineteen ninety three after the highly publicized death of a Catholic cardinal who was caught in a drugged. Her for the thirty six year-old Guzman was blamed. He was arrested in Guatemala and sentenced to twenty years in prison. However the entire time guzman mom was in jail. He lived like a king. Bribing God's so he could receive conjugal visits on-command then when he got forward in two thousand one. He broke out of prison. Legend states that he snuck count in a laundry cart. Journalists believed that he more likely just salted out his path cleared by the many gods. He bribed in two thousand nine eight years. After breaking out of jail sinoloa cartel was doing better than ever this led to fifty two year-old Guzman landing on Forbes list of the world's richest people the magazine stated that he was personally worth one billion dollars. You didn't get there without a little brutality. To hold onto his empire the drug lord is to have personally tortured and murdered his rivals and even though he was arrested again. By Marines in two thousand fourteen. The stone cold killer escaped once more a little over a year later in July. Two Thousand Fifteen as he got older without ever facing real consequences for his crimes his hubris increased. That's what led him to consent to an interview by Hollywood actor Sean Penn. It's rumored that his communications with pen were traced by Mexican authorities ultimately leading to his capture. Guzman was extradited to the United States. Where he face charges of drug trafficking intend to distribute money laundering and homicide during the Eleven Week. Trial even more disturbing revelations about Guzman surfaced. According to a BBC Article One witness told the court that Guzman had buried demand alive. Another told of a rival NOCCO chief who refused to shake goosebumps hand and paid for it with his life. Court papers also accused him of raping girls as young as the team calling them. His vitamins ultimately Guzman was found. Guilty of ten counts including charges of narcotics trafficking. He was sentenced to life in prison. This means that Guzman likely will die of natural causes just as he wished.

Malaria Mosquitoes Biting Before Bednet Time
"Than two hundred million. People get malaria each year and about half a million die mostly in Africa. Many of them children and those staggering numbers aren't improvement. Malaria deaths have been cut in half since two in many places are remarkably. Simple tool has led. The fight bednets treated with a mild insecticide at stopped mosquitoes from biting people in their sleep. Both people end. Mosquitoes are pawns in the malaria transmission cycle if an infected person gets by a mosquito. The parasite gets picked up along with the blood meal. That mosquito can then transfer the parasite to the next person bites. Bednets help stop mosquitoes from easy attacks on motionless sleepers but now some mosquitoes seem to be giving up the night shift malaria. Mosquitoes in Africa tend to ship their biting behavior and Mall. All USA from Penn State University's Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics normally they Tend to by people during the night but because of extensive use of bednets. He's mosquitoes started fighting in the evening or the morning. The assumption is that the bednets are weeding out the nighttime biters while not affecting the mosquitoes that prefer feeding at other times so those mosquitoes are thriving son and his team wanted to know whether the observed changing biting time had any impact on malaria transmission. Back in the lab. They presented Anopheles mosquitoes with the opportunity to feed on blood at six PM at midnight and six am when the laboratory was kept at an even eighty degrees Fahrenheit evening and morning biters or no more or less likely to become infectious than the midnight biters but in the real world of the warming Humid Tropics. Nightime is slightly cooler than the daytime and win. The researchers introduced that time variation. The evening biters were a lot more likely to have potent malaria parasites. The results are in the Journal. Nature Ecology and evolution. Not all mosquito. Bite sorry so Mosquitoes biting evening. Can't have highest transmission potential comparing to mosquitoes biting at midnight or in the morning suffer so the difference in the likelihood of mosquitoes becoming infectious has to do with the way that the malaria parasite matures. The parasites have a tougher time developing when Mosquitos too warm but if a mosquito picks up the parasites from blood around dusk those parasites have more hours of cooler nighttime temps to complete their developments next so wants to conduct a similar study of wild mosquitoes and wild malaria parasites in Africa to see if there's lots from his lab mosquitoes hold up either way. Bednets will remain an important tool but understanding the enemies. Behavior is always crucial information in any

Thoughts on Dealing With COVID-19 from Doug Petrick Upper St Clair HS track & XC coach
"Welcome back to another episode of the moving to live podcast and also the fit lad. Pge podcast listeners. Know if you've listened to us before sometimes we cross pollinate or interview. Somebody who makes a great guests for both fit lab? Pga In moving to live. Both of our podcasts. Have Ethos movement is a lifestyle not just an activity fill out. Pittsburgh tries to highlight people who do great movement things in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania area moving to live tries to break down knowledge silos. And I think today's guest is well suited for both podcasts. Were in the middle of starting week. Five about halfway through week. Five of the Pittsburgh area. Essentially being in social distancing schools are not in session other than virtually and people across the world probably are very aware. It's very similar in various places. Today's guest is Doug Patrick. He is a cross country track and field coach. Upper Saint Clair high school which is a suburb of Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania is also a physics professor. I think from what I've seen is probably the person that I have seen. Who Uses twitter to the best effect of anybody else? As soon as we're done with this I need to find out more twitter. Twitter twitter tips from him. But I think if anybody can talk about the effect that it's had on a career on athletes these coaching and also he somebody who organizes a yearly cross country conference for high school coaches across Pennsylvania and in some cases in other states that he's been I won't say forced but he's had the opportunity over the past couple of weeks to realize this is not going to happen face to face. This is actually going to happen on zoom so doug thanks for taking time to talk to a fit lab. Pittsburgh in moving to live all. Thank some real excited. Kinda talk in connecting share a little bit about what we do like the first thing. That's very interesting to go over because I find it fascinating. I actually have a podcast that came out today where recording today with the physician who is in Italy who has been in quarantine for over four weeks. When did you first find out that your job is a physics teacher and as a cross country coach at Upper Saint Clair that you weren't going to be going into work early morning every day So I WANNA say probably March eleventh was when all this like hit in terms of at the high school and I know earlier that week At students asking. Hey what's going on or we heard. Were not going to be here next week. But I believe the date might the eleventh and our administration had hit said you know the following week we would not in school and I think at that point. It was just sort of a suspension through the middle of April So that being said you know. Uh Sports deathly weren't going to be happening During the suspension academics weren't GonNa be happening and like I wanna tip my hat to the administration at Upper Saint Clair School. Because they were very proactive about like thinking in having a plan in place in not rushing to hurry up and do something to fill time In I had a feeling that we weren't going to go back to distance learning illness after the last three weeks But until we got the official word It are like department meeting which was virtual that you know. We're not going back into the building and you know the state for athletics and activities. Said we're we're down without as well. I don't Wanna Seattle's in disbelief but I just didn't process it. It didn't seem that real so until I think it was like last Thursday That's when we got the official word and you and I were chatting prior to starting recording. I think I mentioned to you that I I started to take it seriously. Maybe four or five days before that and March tenth or eleventh was what I shut everything down to. I'm fortunate in that my real job is I teach online for California University of Pennsylvania so my job per se hasn't changed that much but I'm curious prior to that March eleven. Say a week before that or two weeks before that where was the thought process or was there a thought process about Cova nineteen in the upper Saint Clair School district as far as you as a teacher also as a track coach where you're traveling all over western Pennsylvania. Yeah so I guess we go back to the end of February. We're still in our indoor track and field season. So we're actually Penn state. We had ugly. Three athletes go to the state in so it was the NFL. Or wasn't I don't want to say it wasn't hitting United States but it was something wasn't in the public train were in any of the media and it. Maybe I was naive but I didn't know how it would impact us or if it was going to impact us so I can only speak for myself just in terms of when it. I hate you know that week of the eleventh before the eleven at the beginning of March I would see things come up on on the news. You're in my twitter feed and really. I didn't know the magnitude of what it was in Seoul. The fallen wake you know we weren't school in All the information that kept coming for Nats I just I didn't have a lot of information about the beginning so I didn't anticipate the magnitude. It was GonNa have on everything in everyone's like how long after they March eleventh again just for people who are listening and I know it differs from state to state. Were you aware that the track season was not going to continue score to cease to exist from that point forward. Yes we two leaks in. That was in the sacking leak and the way and the WPA out kind of like two weeks mention of nothing ends. You know on the way home when I got home. Phone's blowing up and local coaches on texting on their taxi. May and I guess different districts were handling it differently summer just doing exactly what the POW said. Some were doing more than what they had said. by I don't WanNA say wasn disbelief but it's sort of as more time went on initially thought we would go back. Maybe we'll just have a district championship or they would modify St Ann's probably about a week and a half ago. I just thought my mocked. It seems like this is just not going to happen. part of that. Is You know a lot. The kids that we have the in college I mean their seasons were cancelled at the beginning of March in. I was thinking you know if college is GONNA CANCEL NOT SEASON. It would make sense to me that a high school. Oscar Cheese Whiz go on. I'm curious I know you have a number of athletes. Go on and run in college. What effect do you think that? This is going to have on high school seniors now as far as getting recruited or getting if they're good enough getting scholarship money to go to college is the fact that they are not going to be able to run their senior year. Run Times they're potentially or PR's right no. It's it's going to impact a lot of kids. I would almost even say kids. That are juniors in terms of if they're track athletes usually their junior year weather guy or girl those the Times that the colleges used the rhythm their junior in spring track. So yeah there are GonNa be at a disadvantage. I'm some seniors. We have that are. GonNa run in college. They were in the process of sort of on being proactive prior to that of visiting schools reaching out schools figuring out if know running is GonNa work in their future with academic so seniors are missing their senior season But I almost want to say maybe juniors. They're going to be track athletes. They're you know they're they will have no times at all. Naturally with colleges. College coaches look at in terms of recruiting.
"penn" Discussed on Life is Short with Justin Long
"One of the original behind is was was a woman named Tara She unveiled herself over. One hundred men as a declaration of you know this principle and she was like tens of thousands of Bahamas in Persian and Ottoman Empire's Executed wound for her beliefs. But the last thing she said you may kill me as soon as you like but would you will never stop the emancipation of women. Talk is the namesake of the of the organization that I have done this this immigration. That's where you see. Oh yeah the relationship. The reason I have a friendship with founder of that organization's because she also was behind. Okay Yeah and we met actually at her sister in laws Memorial Service How Berry how do they generally interested? Yeah so So far as I understand the ordinances it's like You know within hours travel distance of where the where the body die where the life and In a wooden box. No no one bombing for the sake of Decomposition natural decomposition. It's interesting 'cause you know another Persian religion Zoroastrian Astor's another other profit. We totally record. I mean we recognized every major world religion the and and by the way so many others that we wouldn't call a religion but like spiritual truths remain and new. You know like are seen in their cultures essentially every culture. It's my understanding from the Baha'i writings that every culture has flourished as a result of the teachings of a given as we say again manifestation we call them divine educators physicians. What have you you know am a how did the more modern like even mormonism mormonism probably came about this around the same time you know? What's interesting is that in eighteen forty four which was the year the face is originated was the year that was recognized actually Jewish Christian and Muslim clerics and scholars alike as the year? They were waiting waiting for the return of their chosen. One no kidding actually so along comes the bub. No one really more or less you know. The world ignores his message also his name name is Bob so it's Ab okay. I'm not an all offended at far too small to be you're like Elaine. What are you talking about small name? It's just a bob talking but it's also around the same time origin of species was written in so eight hundred. Five I think is when he takes the voyage of the Beagle and all that. But the point is like there was a seismic Huge Science Dude. You know what's funny is that is that leading up to eighteen. Eighteen forty four actually the. US Patent Office was considering closing because they believe they had discovered everything no let alone so may may twenty thirty forty. I four was the night of the Bob declared his station to one other person who is pursued. One other person who was pursuing spiritual actual truth is name was Mel Hussain. He was a young religious student. They were both like he was mother. Hussein was twenty four the Bob Twenty five it all began. I think what's Nice is that is that the the beginning inning of this of this religion began with a single meaningful. Conversation is all that is more or less at the beginning of all action is a conversation maybe religion will spring from this. Would you want to call it. I don't know the rest of this episode was just workshop names for our new. That's interesting and it's really interesting about eighteen forty four. Yeah but what I wanted to say. Is that the night after In America First Telegraph was sent. Oh my God and and the message of all messages was what Hath God wrought. It has message. Wow that's guide that's just fascinates you consider all the things that were invented after oh goodness man vibrator vibrator that flabby. Yeah I mean I could just check okay. We got to hurry up shoot. I didn't know that Penn.. That's that's really fascinating it's you know. Do you have a specific idea of the afterlife. Well nobody could possibly have specific idea. There are certain qualities that they're important to recognize in this life like for instance that that the life of the soul's eternal okay it's more specific and a lot of people. Yeah it's also inconceivable right which is the nature of this life the same way that this world is inconceivable to the child in the womb while the child is developing the capacity to be in this world but but has no has no used for the expression of his is his ears his lungs is I mean the child needs nothing. What is being grown in the womb? True life true spirituality reality seems to be the stuff that is immaterial that we are so we are developing the capacity in this boom world For the next and these these these spiritual attributes are like I said before things like forgiveness justice mercy truth you know determination or what have you. The good ones the infinite the virtues. We're so limited right now in this materialistic age that it's hard to even think of these kinds of virtue consumed by materialism and limited by language. You too that's a profound Okay Shit ship how'd you. How'd you get the name dancing around the elephant when you get out of here is actually how now? Yeah so the. The pen pen was. I lived in Virginia. Yeah for time we you were like an affluent upper middle class. Well there was a there was a country club.

I have a half sister half-sister what is does she have a different name Dunlop. No no no her name is Jenny. Jenny Wow so that's how I in your your mom went along with the pen. Yes she went along with. That was that was probably one of the few things that could ever agree joke. They like to try to make. And you're not very funny to me not one bit so I have to live with it every day. what is your most commonly used Emoji. Would you say and often it. I used to be the I think it was everybody's when it first came out that newish one that is like the half Smiley. It's really it's really really wasn't it's like it's got the half curl smile here and the rest of it's a frown. It just looks like it's been hit by the train. It could be like a hangover phase. It is it's like and I feel like it's it's to me it's like it's just being alive now is quite an anxious time for people to me like what it does is it says like I make it they work doing my best ogling juggling it all incentive joy in the heart through it yeah. I like that. I've been using that one if you I've also been using using this one a lot with the full teeth revealed. I use that a lot like all right all right if you could be a professional athlete. What sport did you play? Soccer now. Unquestionably if you could have one snack food. You're handling an apple apple. If you know what I I. Love Love Persimmons but but they are often not great so when they are perfect perfect perfect persimmon. I feel that way a little bit about Papaya. Once I had when I was in in Central America I had with the when you have fresh fruit of any kind of Asian pears. I love What's the other one mango is? It's crazy but it's very hard to trying to think of something else. I've had that experience with blueberries wild blueberries. It's hard to go back now egg. Do Grapes grow. Have you ever had like a like a good grade right off the tastes they taste like the the real version of the great flavor. You know as a kid so fragrant past the diamond I remember like I sometimes fake being so I could get DIMETAPP Do you smoke. No no nothing to you ever. I went to a very early. Oh Oh yeah very very early I came to La Man. I was exposed to smoke years ago. Probably anxious after I I mean I started but at twelve which then for anybody. By the time I was seventeen I basically was obviously I was never much of a consumer. If you had to live somewhere else where would it be. You know. I think it's a matter of how you live. Not where you live but where you live. It's a very high answer I know I know I do love mountains. I love him more than beaches. More than DOC. I love like foresty mountains. Mountainous store maybe even back where you grew up. I mean somewhere in in Washington and Oregon. Yeah I do love Washington.

I'm not a good actor for this kind of question when I when I had a shame for asking Alec Baldwin this they can answer. That's unfair to actually mimic voice. That way he he he talks and so many other ways I know. But that's a pretty consistent. MAZING mazing Gabby started Yeah I don't think they're racist computers if you have dinner with three people dead or alive whom you've never met whom I've never met also difficult. Lightning Love de Ngelo WHO's a an incredible position? He's he's he's the artist who's influenced me most I don't know what that means. I WanNa have dinner with him though. I don't I don't WanNa Week gushy. Being a person who has been you know objectified some degree all this stuff I I don't I don't mostly by my brother's girlfriend mostly you by Matty's remember only mega thirstier sandwich. I feel like in fact it's really important to value the thing that people make as opposed to look. I mean we see more and more icons falling because of their because of their imperfect behaviors or or much worse than than talking. Oh Martin Short. Oh come on in character as going. Yeah Hey I would. I would do that. It'd be great do that. Maybe you could do glick and Marcus your deal do it. I don't think so I can't believe I have ever forgotten about.

Yeah but but I but I have to say that in terms of like you know now if I want to play sports if I WANNA I wanNA basically do anything when my physical body like. Yeah Yeah but that says nothing about wisdom that says nothing about intelligent..

"And John Stewart establish something that didn't exist before and so I grew up with that as a teenager and then and then it was the first first time I think two thousand fourteen when that was happening was the first time that as an adult I felt like. There's there's a legitimate resource here like I don't I don't go to news for truth. The right so it's winter actually really was that from social media really was that I really really did love engaging with it in that way you die and that was in two thousand fourteen when and that was after way after gossip girl away after yeah I mean it ended in two thousand twelve. Wow that's how you were using it as a tool to reach the masses and like a social tool yeah and today like remote good things sure are and I will admit that that is always like there's so much danger inherent in that as that which I'm sure you relate as a public figure you know to stage do. Do we really believe that public figures. Who have their as? You're saying the pulse on where I know I've been. I've really tried to be more conscientious. She anxious as much as have. I and I've noticed that your like a quick search on your instagram today is you have seemed to have harnessed this. This social whatever social concerns that you had in two thousand fourteen. They seem to have been harnessed into very specific immigration policy Somehow that has that that is the way it is currently manifesto. Yeah true and that is you know what's amazing about that. That is the result of a friendship with the person. Who does this work? That's who you keep you referenced. Rent some videos and the reason I keep doing that is because I am no authority and it's sort of like not even from my own personal benefit but just to be transparent about this source. It's it's to me. There's safety in that because if we am never I'm never going to be any kind of authority in the matter. I'm just trying to learn and then like kind of a portal quarter to for other amplifying a really important thing and I think that's so admirable next year. I also did something admirable. Recently I went. There's that group called. This is about humanity which I think you not I've not heard would really A link up with them but they they take trips across the border and they bring bring supplies. You know. We did one right before Christmas. We toys and stuff to these kids. Who are stuck in these They're stuck in this limbo state at the border but they are having a hard time. That's actually the danger. I mean because like migrants are uniquely vulnerable. Actually because the the situation has been created. And you know I'll I'll try. I'll try and step very carefully carefully as I choose words and we're neither of US are no neither of US thirty but if there's anything valuable here let's try. Yeah so and it's true first and foremost that there's no country in the world that can actually just accept all people for any and all reasons seeking asylum perfectly perfect legal process. And that is what has been so misconstrued whenever whenever I've said maybe before trying to attempt to because also in these conversations precision some thinking of unity. Yeah sure you don't want to buy. I mean you don't divide that now that that's what we try on the show to avoid it at all costs. I mean in this case though it strikes me that when I took this trip with this is about humanity the Republicans there were conservative. There a lot of people on all sides of the what we call the. I'll yeah I mean it. It struck me that this should this is a human. It is human issue. I don't I don't understand how it got who flooded with Right versus left dude. I mean because increasingly what else is there. What other contact we I mean the? What's really unfortunate is that we don't even understand and how to affect change outside of the realm of politics is inherently divisive? Well and that's come to find out a lot of these judges who aren't allowing these cases simple cases to be processed which I think it's how Paso Paso Ninety nine percent of cases gets wilder dismissed by the judge won't even They can't even present their cases in in a fair way. So that's when it becomes like okay. Well there's clearly institutional racism. I mean no doubt but it's but it is complicated it's complex I was in one of these courtrooms actually for a hearing was able to go to a different a couple of different spaces and it doesn't look like a white person. Denying a brown person actually eighty percent of the of the he like administrative staff in these kinds of these like detention centers. Or these were these. Were like yeah you know I mean like they they they. They can all speak the same language in Spanish button. But they're but they're speaking in English because it's a it's an American court. Meanwhile there's a translator who is often not fully equipped for I mean. There's there's no no doubt that it is. I mean here's a term that that that we sort of coined together down there when we were witnessing this and there were other people who were very informed. Were telling us is their best understanding of the processes that and forgive me if this sounds in some ways flippant but we we. We were thinking that it seems to be in terms of WHO's cases is denied. WHO's detained? Who is maybe you know forced to remain in Mexico where they are subject to kidnapping? WHO's you know? There's there's a number of ways that this can go Over people but it seems to be racist persecution form of duck duck goose like there's no clear rhyme or reason to and beyond that I don't know the I don't know that it's helpful helpful to say anything here that you're I mean you're still using the shoot you have a huge platform You had mentioned gossip girl That it was on Netflix. Had It'd probably done so well that that's one of the components of the. That's probably what Netflix looked at. You Know Yeah Yeah but I noticed that sometimes on Leighton Miester somebody I follow and I noticed sometimes Ossie like a comment and it's you know she'll post something out to see. The comments are all off Casa. Blair you know I mean really. It's it's it's it seems as though the fans are completely unfazed by any other thing you know but but that's also social media social media and it's Netflix and the fact that they can access excessive anytime they want. What then does that do to your day to day? Like what does that do to U. Penn in the world like how how many EH vista rates my fence around. WHO's filming you? I mean I have to say that it is a yeah. It's a a unique experience. Especially right right now right right now I bet for Ed with you these podcasts but like you know the show the the second season has just come out. Yeah sounds like you know this about me. I've always been introspective reflective. I know that's like a dushi sound. I don't WanNa put you make you say something like that but I can confirm that like that's who you. That's yeah I mean just an hour and due to a fault because like I in the past have been I mean understanding understanding. This is a safe. Space is really nice because in the past if somebody asks me a question I'm GonNa try to think about it an answer it I try to be you honest and and forthcoming and transparent because maybe that is some inherent respect for like the shared humanity between two people having the conversation but the problem with most interviews that they're not actually conversation. They're actually both to people doing a job right. The person who's interviewing you actually most of the time doesn't really want to be there. It's more like a dance. Yeah right and so to find an eighth grade dance. It's exactly I mean. That's that's a perfect metaphor. For what have you gotten into trouble. Have you said things that like you say something in the moment and they are out of context quoted. You from like this is something. I saw like instagram popular page. which I don't know what that says about it but I just thought it was so interesting in the it it? This is an example of like how it can be now. It's like a touchstone for a conversation we can have about this but has there been the opposite of that has to have there been quotes of yours years that I mean. Yeah they'd like taken out of context and one of the first interviews. I ever did after getting gossip girl some the person. I don't remember what it was four but the person asked me about the narration. And to be honest. If you're asking something about the way this show is conceived. You shouldn't be asking the active. Exactly yeah that should be talking to the writers. But but frankly you're only I'm interested in soundbites from quasi famous people so you know so so I'm quasi but isn't always pseudo I know. Does this person asked me something about the narration. And frankly me I'm I'm not a viewer of gossip girl. I'm an actor on it and it's just not the kind of show it ever watch nothing wrong with that. You know I I can value. It'd be right well you can but the thing I have said that before and I think I think I knew that I remember you telling me that you didn't really watch the show and you know when you've done over one hundred the episodes yeah then it becomes like okay. Yeah I did say in this interview. I I didn't understand I think then particularly I really didn't understand why the concept would be your could Successful because it's a I'm not a writer. I'm not the reader I'm not. That's not the way my brain was working in the time. Probably not even now and so I said something like yeah I mean you know the voice over over to me like I don't really get it. Maybe in time the voice over will sort of phase out because to me. It doesn't seem so essential now that's actually objectively stupid. Because is it is a pillar of the show and a key element of it all right. So behold like a twenty year old is maybe we not going to have the best understanding of the cultural phenomenon their heart of life so like I was asked that question Said something where I was demonstrating eating my incapacity to like understand the the the device and I was like. Yeah maybe it will. Maybe it won't like I. It's my least favorite part about the show. It's just it's just takes up all this space and time and so then. The headline boy was why Penn.. Badgley hate Scott's surprise. It's also like the tone of that. It's like just one thing to say like yeah..
"penn" Discussed on Life is Short with Justin Long
"I feel like I remember this about you. Do you talk to people who don't have to recognize a lot. You must get it a lot. I mean you must i. I know it's not interesting to talk about. And it's not relatable to talk about this kind of stuff but I'm I'm always curious about it because you are a very I would say you're very normal. What is normal but rather we are going right yes it is okay then? I'm eating an almond but for the viewer. Yeah we don't we don't. I should've said that was not cameras. So feel free to put your clothes back on if you wish Russia no. It doesn't apologize for the almonds. I'm just having I I need something. He's he's hungry not thirsty wing wing which I wanna get into a term. I just heard I just learned. It's I heard it like a year ago I think. But you're on the forefront of the revolution in what context. Did you hear it. You did you start hearing people talk saint using. I don't know man. I think Wendi things entered the lexicon I know for instance hype Word Hype. Yeah I felt like that was being used the same way. It is now in the early nineties. I wasn't aware of it but I'm just saying I'm pretty sure it was. I mean I was a child but that's stuck around the other interesting thing is. When did they enter but also when did they leave the Term Bay? Yeah that's that's not really I haven't heard not that I have my finger on the pulse of how the fact that I hadn't I was shamed for not not knowing what thirsty was and that strikes me as something that may be gone soon is a real thirst trap here in the studio but but so pen was right around the corner. Funny I had. I had a very you moment. That's a hard shoulder reference. It is because it's such common Pronoun Jokes are they can be good. I say you the person the Star of you as I was entering this building and I I just saw the first episode because I was like. Oh I haven't a senior and I. I'm really into doing homework and I wanNA watch your work. I've always enjoyed your work on that basis alone. I thought I would enjoy it but I got. I see why it's so like to catch a train out here. I was like I want to. I'd be interested if you by the way no pressure whatsoever myself south watching it. Yeah I don't know that you can feel nothing when you watch you. GotTa you're you're GonNa feel oh absolutely going to feel one way about it and I just keep going or not well because it's such an interesting premise. I love the idea and the fact that you're playing it as this like very likable very charismatic. Into somebody who does. It's really nice things you have the story line with kid with pock. Oh and I think also the early first season By the way we should let people know they're probably spoilers all around I. Yeah I know I'm just contextualized. I'm you must know some of you know how it ends. No don't please don't tell me I won't aren't we. Should talk about about half see. It's going to be hard. I do want to talk about the second season because it's the second season just started and that's kind of why it's one of the reasons why you're here. I WanNa read something you said about your character on the show that was I thought so interesting. You said it says something about how much we're willing to be patient and forgive someone who inhabits a body that looks something like mine the color of my skin my gender these sorts of things these sorts of privileges and now having seen it that makes total sense. And I know your character who is very attractive to a lot of girls. My my brother's girlfriend among them Maggie. She's very thirsty for you. She's she you have yet to quench your there. A lot of. That's a great a point. Yeah who's quenching thirst. And can you use that. If you end up meeting a fan. WHO's thirsty longer thirsty? I want to see now like the the the the movement of those who are sated now for you even the even on a syllable sounds so not cool. I totally sated now by Penn.. It's interesting 'cause like I said your character does do these horrible things and okay spoiler alert you in the first steps you kill you. You severely beat somebody pretty clear. I'm going to kill him but I don't until the second episode. Great sorry you only saw the first year but you know where it's like. Yeah you know I know Lou. He's he's really talented in this. He's very good. I mean honestly. That's a hard roll to not make the like. I actually think that he helped to establish a foundation where the entire concept is elevated evaded and. I'm pretty sure the creators understand this this to Sarah Greg creators of the show. I feel like why they cast him is because we needed somebody in that particular role to not let the thing feel too much like it shares. I mean because it shares. DNA with shows like gossip girl. Obviously I mean you know he Will Your DNA's totally president right. And just I think the way it's conceived the sort of I mean you know increasingly I mean I personally watch even the most prestigious television vision. I'm like this is the soap opera. The construct is still yeah as much superficial changes. There's not actually that much still the formula whereas like you really don't I mean it's so so inventive and I'm glad you feel that way so good but it's still an this isn't even like any any this isn't at all discredits it messes with it. Does it takes the formula and actually leans into it to make you really think about the formula which is Meta I like I do too and you even reference formulas and that I. It's IT'S A weirdly self referential show I even made a joke recently with With Sarah Gamble the CO creator that by the third or fourth season will be making gossip girl jokes. Because it's I mean I don't think it'll be better but it does have some of that self referential pop up culture references and similar to even Dawson's Creek which Greg Berlanti did back in the day. I know I think he might have worked on dozens freak but the first first one that he is that I'm aware of Everwood. Oh okay yes but but it doesn't dialogue. That is very sometimes really tough for an actor to navigate because it's very wordy and it's often and I don't mean this as an insult because I do love it's not always how people speak what's exposition very very expert. You're you're having to explain totally things but but we're what works. I think so well with this. Is that that exposition is all on voice over. Yeah Yeah it's amazing it's all it's like where where I would ordinarily be having to explain my my thinking and actions. It's just all there in the voice over dude. Most days I go to work. I actually have very few lines that you hear that narration. You must know the narration beforehand. Obviously in the script normally record the voice is over before before we shot anything But that doesn't necessarily mean that I always remember exactly what I'm how I'm saying. Dude a lot of different ways. What's amazing kind of like you feel here? Probably in some way I go in there. There's no one directing me and I just do a couple episodes. It'll it'll be like a two or three hour session. I'll do as many episodes as I can do. A bunch of takes of every line just the way that I'm feeling it. And then they they cull through it and they somebody's sitting there taking notes editor and she's obviously kind of like she's definitely a creative partner in the process. Well Yeah but the directors are never there executive producer. This was over there. It's only ever this one person. Her name is Stephanie Johnson and an engineer and Frankly Stephanie is there is my sounding board and again she is a definitely a creative partner during this but for the most part no one says anything I just keep going keep going and then and then every now and then I'll ask like like I'm going for something. Can you hear like yeah. I think it's and then I'm sure after a few episodes you probably get sent. You probably have a very clear sense of what they're using them is. Yeah it's it strikes me just after hearing one that a lot of that narration. An takes they're using are probably in there very often chigney oil. I mean that's your delivery is very. It's all natural but it's none of it you you don't tip your hand at all. It's not like Patrick. Bateman right. Of course that does change actually. That's where like by the sixth episode. For instance there's one that episode. He's concussed and medicated. And almost the entire thing I'm silent once so in that episode. I follow. Follow my girlfriend now at this point. He's with her. Do you watch it is. She's so good. Elizabeth Lil great right so that episode became so extreme and in order to walk that line of extremity with Grayson nuance. I think that's where I personally suddenly started to develop the brand of Joe really because you're right in the beginning it is actually quite genial in a way where it is yeah. There are times where I picked up. There are other times where I really drop into this place very like extremely. It's it's different berry white and did Ya. Yeah he makes a lot of people thirsty wet so I appreciate the fact that it started because it really sucks people in your this very early like likable guy. Who's going through these? WHO's treating people with kindness in like seems to have compassion and a lot of ways? He's a great guy. Yeah I think he's never as likable is. He is in the first two episodes of the first season But you can understand why he falls into this. The only thing that was difficult to really embrace the murder well the murder you. You haven't gotten there. I know bracket I found myself really liking you and then shit happens The second season now the first episode is they're all out there. I mean that's Netflix. That's right so so this show at at what point was it like a hit because I remember all of a sudden. Just hearing about it Were you prepared for that at all. I know it started on lifetime. I I was told beforehand that there were people at Netflix. who were pretty confident? They could let the Showbiz hit You know if you think about. It's not making this show it hit. Netflix is the one in ways that they are such a They're not a leader there. They were a disruptor but now they seem to what they probably have dialed in more than any other streaming service is like the algorithms serves voters. Free how Dr You know. Yeah and what's so they so they apparently already had the data where they were like. Oh no this show is going to be hit like we like like we just. It's just not even a it's not a mystery or an art to us. It's a science. It's the table yeah exactly. It's math with gossip girl on Netflix. It was so they must've must've seemed from that that there's still a real right. They understand something about our psychology. I noticed that a few times. I follow Layton on instagram. And this I feel instagram's a new thing for both of us you got well. I got on it to support my band like five years ago. Yeah I remember talking about this at one hundred. It's surprised me that you I had one yet literally only got it for my band and to me. It was a few months before we refer to as black lives matter. There's there's a lot of ways you could try to find that movement. In that moment that time I was really moved by. What seemed like suddenly this this this way for all people actually actually to participate in this conversation totally and it and it seemed like a lot of young people and obviously a lot of exciting? There are a lot of black people. And so I I actually as a person who I don't know just always felt like the elephant in the room in media is just the inherent racism of everything you know and so to be honest. I loved that that strange synergy of that moment. Where I widen valuable and I and I was actually quite outspoken? Probably far too much because I found myself being invested in exhausted in a way that wasn't healthy but I I didn't know what else to do in that moment in time. My timeline happens to be you from a place that designates black twitter I mean you know it is referred to as that and it's like you know. What do you mean twitter? Have you not heard that. No no no I figured out thirsty. No I mean and so I don't even You know I mean maybe it's not my place to say but I don't think you should even feel uncomfortable about. It is very much so the so what's interesting is that the African American community is is disproportionately I wouldn't WanNa say over represented but the representation on social social media is proportionately larger for the African American community than any other. As far as I'm aware and and and you know it's pretty safe to say that we recognize Nice. How that community is the driver of culture in America and therefore thereby the world more or less like music look at just just a lot of things so so? My timeline is populated mostly by figures who were brilliantly speaking to the matters at hand at the time so a lot of of people who who are black. Yeah who are. LGBTQ A. Plus all these these identifying factors so twitter was the first time I feel like as an adult it was kind of like the progression of the daily show because I was a teenager during the during the the sort of is like peak golden age and the new show during the Bush Years John Stewart And I shouldn't call it the golden years but it had an entirely new life now right right I mean it is like a different show.

Snap people will be confused like nobody's going to be confused. Dad look mindy uses. Her first name like people use their first names is on shows. Rheinfelden seinfeld used his last name. Yeah you're not seinfeld. Mike okay fine so very good point but still so the reason i named him garrett and i think we're probably gonna find sound like the last episode of the first season. The back story is that when his and his sister's name is mallory. You've <hes> you find out that when his parents moved to america <hes> they loved watching television. They loved the facts of life. They thought that mrs garrett was such a hard working woman and as an immigrant they're like this. Mrs garrod is the reason we watched the facts excellent life then they started watching different strokes and mrs garrett is also on different strokes and they were like mind blown this the artist working american yeah our first burns son has to be named cleaning half of america's house yes and then mallory because of family ties that followed 'cause mallory was also very studious and hardworking and so i wanted to like i mean now i'm talking about. It's not quite so quiet but like i wanted to do a quiet hat tip to that conversation that has no right answer sir well. I bet by giving them both the everyone will be mad. I don't you could think of it as a hack. It's like it's both and i remembered this. This all goes back to the selo comment that went back to u._c._l._a. I don't often read my act. Mentions on twitter grants pass not somebody did slide into my calling me a sell out because i'm playing a guy named garrett in a new n._b._c. Show made me think of these. The indian kids at u._c._l._a. And i was like i mean i laughed. I sent it to my co-creator. <hes> matt murray and i was like hey man is totally took the bait <hes> ah on that show moses also and loved him on the so happy to see that he he's hilarious. He does this crazy easy thing on the carpet where he's posing. I think it was his first. T._c._i.'s it's such a weird pose coach yeah during those like riding the today found on getty images that you can buy a photo of the weird pose for five hundred dollars five hundred dollars and i hope somebody buys we identify. What network is that n._b._c. n._b._c. Okay mike mike. Mike sure is involved with what is the premise of it. Premise is <hes> i play a guy named gary moody <hes> disgraced new york city councilman who who is kicked out of city council because he is wasted and tries to bribe a cop pukes on a cop car in the new york city and realizes he gets kicked out of office that he has no other job skills else. He was the youngest ever elected new york city. Councilman doesn't know what to do. Puts an ad on airbnb experiences for fifty bucks an hour. I'll do whatever you want oh. This group of immigrants hires him for a day to help them study for the citizenship test. Oh <hes> obviously they know way more about what it means to be american and that he he does because citizens tasked. I've seen are ninety eight percent of a matinee born americans yeah i mean i don't know much but so essentially it's a group of friends right. It's it's like the shows. I grew up loving watching like fresh princeton seinfeld and friends in a class back in the day right. We're going for like that kind of vibe so it's about a group of friends and with that being the backdrop open and honest on this show. I will say that auditioned for it. Oh you remember yes so the variant and it is so funny it is it is it's going to be great. Were you auditioning to play cal's system. Okay yeah i can see that the mallory family ties murari and yeah so you know. It's funny is about the whole thing. Monica is expressively will never do the accent claims time she can't do the accent and i'm like well. You could learn the accent they'll do for money. Learn it. You could learn to you but the real like the sophie's choice really happened for her. Which was mindy was doing a show and accent required. It's about people that are newly emigrated yeah and so i said to monaco. I'm like god what is fucking with you right now. It's it's the most tempting opportunity and it's like. I'll teach you. I know it from without a paddle. Ah the double double will somebody and somebody would find look. She sounds exactly with a paddle. Some it's like she has an indian accent and michigan acts. Yes seeing thing but it's called sunnyside. It's on what day on n._b._c. thursday nights at nine thirty but i just want to say i can't leave here without saying that you know kind of at the height of your superpower's. You're you know you're midway through doing the franchise of harold and kumar in your house which by the way is the only medical show i ever loved his show. I watched. I loved it. You're great on the show and then you bounce yeah you go to work at the white house <hes> <hes> tell me how you got to that point. It sounds super random. It's far less random him then. I think it sounds in two thousand seven when i was on house. There was a writers strike so the w._g. A had a labor dispute and we couldn't shoot anymore episodes after the ones that were written were gone and right around that time was when all of the primaries were kicking off iowa caucus kick off the primary season. I had read. I think obama had one book out at the time. I don't think the second dropped but i liked his book. I did not like politicians and i had no interest in actually working for one <hes> <music>. <hes> an olivia wilde knocked on my trailer door one day before we wrap for the strike and she said hey. I've got a plus one to an obama like event that he's doing. Do you wanna come like well. What is it i saw two thousand and four speech thought it was awesome. I would love to appear in but i like what's the catch so it's for about fifty artists and he's basically going to make an ask to see who can help him in the lead up to the iowa caucus because he's running for president is again honor. I don't have an interest in that sick. Why not you were against the iraq. Doc war like yeah. Both parties got us into the iraq war but obama was against the iraq war. I'm like okay but he wasn't a sitting senator at the time so this went back and fourth. I'll alternately went with her. <hes> let me back up. A guy named peter blake who is one of our writers on house said hey. If you're going to go to this event you might be interested in going to a fundraiser for obama's mosaic descent people get roped into shit. I am not fan of your your. I'm a nerd. I am going with olivia wilde and she's my co worker does yeah but you you know he's gonna make an ask. Why don't you see what actually like in front of his donors. There's this breakfast of and he's doing in malibu. It's only two thousand five hundred bucks a plate by only leads. One of them are not going to happen because i can get you in for twenty five bucks as long as you don't eat any of the food i have immigrant parents who used to me right deal common yeah yeah that's definitely a fucking good meal if it's worth twenty four hundred seventy five dollar ever seen such breakfast all of which only made me cynical and i was like well of course this guy is just like everybody else and he's gonna be rich people breakfasts but at that breakfast he started talking about climate change and clearly clearly went off remarks and was calling people out for driving hummers two very popular at the time you know people seemed a little uncomfortable and i thought there you know there. There's no press here. <hes> this dude is clearly going off remarks. This is not what my polycyclic said people do right. You don't do this in front of your donors donors. Yeah that was morning. Event of you invited me to in the evening during the day. I you know i got my tacos and i read a bunch of nerdy policy stuff about climate change on his website site is policy papers and stuff it just a few weeks prior i had read an article about ethanol in foreign affairs magazine and it talked about how so ethanol can be made from all sorts of things but this talk about corn based ethanol and how if you use corn to create fuel it will drive up the price of corn in developing countries and people won't be able to feed themselves if they rely lie on corn as a staple so i was prepared. I was like i have read these articles. I am going to ask him a question. Oh we're going to be in a room full of actors and i'm gonna be the smart guy. This'll be awesome and i go to this event and it was very nice. He didn't make any speeches he just sort of worked the room and getting to know people and i i said the senator guy. I've got a question for you. I was at your thing this morning thinking about the hummers. That was very funny. <hes> sound like a reporter things morning. No i did not like uh-huh thing was fully avenue and i said <hes> and you know they say that your plan your policy planning talks about investing ethanol but you know <hes> corn based death-knell drives up the price of food for people in developing countries so at is your plan account for that and he looks at me and goes <hes> yeah i read that article in foreign affairs to mclane mclane is based on cellulosic ethanol so that you can use things like grass clippings and leaves to me as well lou rich a bridge to cellulosic ethanol was like oh <music> embarrassed check mate motherfucker yet. He is obviously you run on. Get us some white castle. Nasa even knew the article i read that wasn't on his campaigns website but i thought it was an interesting interaction then he'd said some things about the role that artists play in america and sort of said you know you guys give people an escape and i would love your help in making people's lives better substantively and he was asking for can you help me in a weekend of campaigning in iowa so myself olivia and an actually she's fantastic name <hes> meddling chicken walkway my favorite person she's also. I love mangla angling. She's so dope yeah. Kristen was on a show with her. She's the most she's so cool yeah so the three of us were non political surrogates a surrogate of somebody who speaks on behalf of a candidate candidate so that they can do a rally you can be in another state or another place in.

"Drag as you said. There were a couple people saw of day say descent dan on t._v. In you gonna be lucky enough to be one of them but now you've got evaluate. The entire implications of that seems like a lot to put on a twenty three year old actor. It's also superfluid right. You're by the way that that episode of buster. Non reads like a documentary to me like a real of stories of kashmir actors and <hes> and it's funny that people ask about the twenty four episode a lot because that was one of those where i'm like just psyched to play a character whose such an adult human being you know this because the comedy space sort of our thing like you're playing a likable nice guy so often like give me an asshole. I wanna play a despicable human being yeah but that conversation about whether to do accent with ira barbara was actually very helpful to me at the first movie did did this movie. Van wilder with ryan reynolds right first movie. I did a couple of years after college so you know andrew panay yeah. There's one of my yet miss it. I i had a blast making that movie. <hes> laura barbara caymans assists. It called me a lot that we were playing. This added the same agent so we'll be both unaware married to kristen bell. We're one step away from that so laura called me and said hey. I've got this amazing audition for you. I'm so excited headed. It's the supporting lead in a movie. You have to come to the office. I need to talk to you about the script and you know this office. In traffic from westwood is like a two hour scenario dario each way so i said why don't you just leave it at the dropbox and i'll pick it up tonight. Tell me what the character is at. I'm reading for just emailed me some of the sides and she doesn't. I want to talk to you about it. I'm i'm so excited. It is supporting lead in a teen comedy now. I'm excited semi some of the sides. What's the name of the character does just please just come in. Just just come in this went back and forth and i was like i promise you i will come in. Just tell me the name the character and send me some sites 'cause okay. <hes> the name of the character is taj mahal and she called me back and she goes honey. I figured you might do that yeah. I i study theater nor move out here to u._c._l._a. To play a guy named taj mahal fake the opportunity knocking and she he said i really need you understand that. This is a big deal. This is a supporting lead in studio comedy with ryan reynolds. Who's on two guys a girl and a pizza place. <hes> <music> will one day be dead pool and tara reid. Who's in american pie and you need to audition for this movie because if you get it then i'll be able to pitch you for a different caliber of projects that i currently cannot pitching for because you don't have those credits on your resume yeah and she said please just read the script so i read the script and yes it was phenomenally stereotypical who had a you know sort of exaggerated accent and lusting lusting after white girls who he couldn't get sort of every stirred up in the book also interestingly every stereotype of just being an eighteen year old male <hes> oversexed oversexed can't think things with dick like stereotype of that right yeah then i start realizing that the plot doesn't advance absent this character character so this question this goes back to sort of the accident conversation wealth times think it's kind of reductionist but so i'm not gonna play a cabdriver. I don't wanna play store clerk right well. Then you get into this weird territory of are we just saying that because they're working class jobs or do you actually mean that there's something one dimensional about the portrayal the historic portrayal of these roles or that they don't advance the plot of the film or the character doesn't have an arc. There's nothing for them to do right so i called laura back when we had this conversation with her and with barbara about like well this is really interesting because as i remember it being less about me being personally offended at these stereotypes ryan and more about me feeling incredibly bored by them shar right and there wasn't a ton of comedy for you to do. It was lazy comedy. Yes that's interesting. Yeah you could have been more offended by the the cheapness of the joke as opposed to the racial implications locations exactly right it was both and i remember calling one of the casting exact shoes v._p._n. N._b._c. this twenty years ago now. This woman named sewn unicor. She she happened to be indian-american and happened to be in the castle department at n._b._c. and i had had a general meeting with her a few hours prior and she said you know if you ever have any questions feel free to give me a call and i thought i am very conscious. Ships that to your point about african american actors. You're always being told you have to choose something based on an entire group of people <hes> and i thought maybe she would have some insight insight into this this role and so i called her and said there's a script and i told her everything that that taj mahal you call back so look doc. Barbara is absolutely right with everything she said businesswise. If you get a role like this one hundred percent she can pitch you for things that she just can't get you in the room for right now pilots and it's no secret secret that any woman any any performer of color has to have ten times more credits on the resume just out yeah so yeah so yes. She's being honest with you about that. How many things in the script offended offended you or did you find cringe-worthy like i don't know like thirty off the road number to start with anything in the script actually funny and i was like oh yeah like there's a thomas stuff like this back. It's lit on fire kind of phone this woman superintendent but he screws it up but it like goes beyond its very animal house esque in that regard okay so that part of it excites. You took out yeah like if his name was phil and he was from des moines and i could go out for this. That'd be super excited yeah yeah so she goes okay. Here's what you do pick ten of the thirty things and if you get that part sit down with the writers and the director and talk to them about those ten do things but in order to do that you have to come up with ten things that are funnier than what the writers came. You gotta replace it. Yeah you got. That was the first time that anybody nobody told me that. I had any agency in these conversations on all right because up until that point it was just a fight about. I don't wanna do this accent. You have to do the accent you know the horrible experience on sabrina the teenage witch. I remember a high or so mean and so like you're doing that accent. That's hard to do but i love your show. Ooh didn't matter so went through the audition process. The last audition i remember i walked into the waiting or minute was another guy. I was like all right. I wonder if this dude got the same aim feelings as i do if like see his stage name like his deal does he feel comfortable with all this and i walk into the waiting room and it was a white dude and brown face. Was it me it was not law but i was not shocked so wants wants his. I had seen it a ton in auditions before that and i've seen it a ton since that right again. Not interrupt your flow but i when when i say that you were a part of a different error. This is really the minimally. That's not how dare i never seen bill time. I have seen it happen was just over a decade ago slightly over a decade ago where i saw on a show. I was working. Okay which is five minutes ago looks at yes so the reason i say that as we like to think these things are leaps and bounds separated from mud even look even some of our friends have done them on counsels. There are screwing just admit that embarrassingly in two thousand three when we filmed it which came out in two thousand four. There's a scene in without a paddle where someone's gotta laser the scope and then i get up and they're like you've doubt on your forehead in. I immediately indian accent in the script and i did it. I thought that was i was proud of myself that i thought i did a good. Yes azure yes because i had heard it on this totally. Obviously it wouldn't do that today and obviously embarrassed. The bad happened but it happened. I was twenty eight in fuck. I did it and that was my first movie and i would have shifted my hands and eating on camera if they were to let me take your perfectly teeing up it was about to say which was my beef if was not with the guy in the waiting room is never with the other actor. At least this is what i believe. I was mostly fascinated. This brother who had at home did he drive. I have to audition with if so hold over three did did he do it in the bathroom. Did he come early. Go to all of the three casting sessions before in brown did his agent tell them to do. It didn't come up with the ear it so we're just having a conversation it's even using is that standard may salaam and learn really nice guy but i told myself when i saw that that he was not allowed to get that part right any of the conversations that are had with myself about the thirty thirty things or the conversation with sony about ten funny things that i could come up with or feeling like i hate that. I need to have those conversations at all because i just want to be funny all went out the window via. When i saw this dude embrace it was like no you are not allowed to have this and so i'm like i am going to do whatever i have to get this part. You don't get that credit on your resume. I want that credit monitoring addition pilots next year because i did this movie right and in addition like ryan is an incredibly funny guy. Oh oh yeah andrew was awesome. Director walt becker was really fun. It was a great improvisational room where we had fun and look. I think for a a younger generation of performers of color who are listening to this. They are cringing and rolling the ri- going. You're such an old man apologised <hes> a movie like that i get it out of that position and i am not going to fight you on it. Yes but i'm sharing my experience which was at that time. This is something that was was a a real thing that you need a credit on your resume to get work rate so when when harold in galway castle came around i was at a birthday party for a mutual friend john. It's an hayden schlossberg or the two guys who created the franchise and roll three movies and are hilarious. <hes> of mutual friend introduced us and jon hurwitz came up to me and said whoa you don't have an indian indian accent and it was the most off-putting thing right. You're at a buddy's birthday party in l._a. Yes i'm deuce bag is like in indian accent and i remember saying something like while you you do sound like an asshole yeah and what it meant was your so hilarious and van wilder. I'm a screenwriter. I wrote this movie called herald and corn go to white castle but the one of the leads is kit from new jersey..
"penn" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"Kurkin candidate. We are the same a one first. I ate barbara camera and i got fired by her and i kept the letter what i have in my files fired letter fire. Are you gonna lay. We needs to be pointed out to the listener. It's not like we both were at c._a. Or u._t._a. Barbara cameron was primarily specializing in younger children actors because of her child kirk kirk and candace cameron house that way to fuck that up against amount in the little house in the in west hills in the back of her actual house very far house. There was the dropbox in the valley somewhere for you to pick up your scripts that laura would laura assistant is possible but i should have met a thousand times. Yes when i first went to rain for. I think i i read for laura. I read for both barbara was there. I remember birthright. Having to this west tells address i had prepared a monologue from henry the fifth own right and now the listener moving l. a. to be an actor or nobody will ever ask you to recite a shakespearean monologue to those movies come by once every seven years ago maury about yeah not only that there's no preparation i had to marie like some toilet paper commercials same when when i got there and <hes> when i went to that house i thought after all over the years of the backstage west going to people's apartments. I pulled up to this his house. It's so beautiful and quiet and this is porn. This is how you get tricked into doing rights and then you walk in and see the full house and growing pains posters. I'm like it's either fucking crazy porn or we're fine fine right here. This is <hes> on both my ladder. The my letter was and again it's going through my my filter of having been very embarrassed by getting fired terrified now because that was the first age i ever got. It took me years to get that one but if i remember correctly deeply implied that i wasn't putting the same energy to my career that they were putting into it or something along those lines i think as i was stubborn about about like eating digital headshots paying for that like i was always a little reserved about all these things are supposed to be buying on top of it yeah at any rate i was fired in. I was much each less evolve then in spiteful and i saved the letter solely in case i ever made like twenty million dollars on a movie and it was in the headline i was going to send that back back to them in a healed from all that and i would never do that now but alas. I still have it. I have a rejection letter from abrams artists. Oh sure where i had a friend who was ripped by them sent the head shot and it was a rejection letter and they called and said we just want you to know because you know you're a friend of a client of ours that we think you're fantastic. We just don't think there's going to be any work for somebody who looks like you and we just wanted to be honest about that that <hes> and i was appreciative at the time in the kind of self-loathing i doing with my life way yeah you are but i saved that letter for the same reason where i thought thought i one day when i work i want to just take this letter out and look at it and i was like or i couldn't learn to move on and he'll still have the letters you so you come to realize that it's a poison your drinking hope hurt the other person i wanna know before i frame this because i can imagine one of either two scenarios one is you're happy to talk about being first generation indian and and all the different ways that's affecting your ride and journey here or i could imagine you mean like dude. I'm a funny the actor. Let's just talk about me being a funny actor. I'm sick of talking about that component the reason i'm very selfishly inclined for the former. Is that a half. This podcast is first generation indian. We talk about it all all the time desk. There's just a ton of things that i think you being only two years younger than me and then nine years monica you spanned something you know what i'm saying unlike the difference between when you entered in where we are today you actually live from that whole thing yeah first hand and i think there's a lot of interesting stuff about that. What is your overall opinion in about having always talk about that. Well i mean. I think you hit the you. You guys are an exemption to off. The ladder is always trading for most actors like man come on. I just want to be funny. Just i want to be funny but then there's the more appropriate times and places where it's actually it actually fits into like the narrative avoid have been talking about in the past the guests you've had on so yes i'm happy to on i read about your story is monica and i listen to this great episode of malcolm glad wells podcasts where they talked about the power of the token in the end it was really all about sammy davis junior and it was about like basically what he had to do to be the first one through the door and what women who are the first ones who the door go through who and what they're asked to do before it evolves and then unfortunately people then y- getting judged specially sammy davis he gets judged judged by a different era of how people were expected to act and it's just a little unfair in a little unfortunate because he was the first one in the first one through my tireless well 'cause when we had hocine on. He referenced harold and kumar. He said that ah for him was the first time it was like oh i can do that or it was like a light bulb for him so yeah you were definitely at the precipice of this whole thing shift. I think we've all had that though like for me that person was was several people but it was mere neier when i was in eighth grade and mississippi masala came came out to the movie she directed denzel and the other in and i remember seeing that as i was in eighth grade went to the movies with my parents and a cousin and it it was the first time that i had seen people who looked like me who were ah i won't actual real humans right not a cartoon character voiced by somebody who was not actually south south asian american right nor somebody eating monkey brains in luck action movie for serving tea to indiana jones. Yeah i'm talking about. Uh when you don't see yourself is when you when you notice right yeah if you if you grew up seeing yourself. I think you don't necessarily feel what that is so for me. It was that movie when i'm sitting there nayef grade going wow i already know that i love this but maybe this is something that i can do and then there were plenty of other people who had done it before a jay naidoo for example in office space and so for me. It was all of them so it's interesting that hudson's first time seeing something like that was <hes> was held kamar. Yeah that's crazy yeah. There's like steps along the way that would be different if you're replicating your whole thing today so so like even the name so they were being generous insane. It was a hard name to remember something or it wasn't a significant name in my real initially originally it was a bunch of things at once right so there obviously was the aspect of my head shot is what i look like. Yes yes and my name is what it is my birth name and anything that you can do to get in the room. This is sort of universal any actor. You're going to do it yeah right down to the lying. The special skills section extra later so one aspect of that to me was the name yeah. I definitely think part of it was whether having a less ethnic sounding name would work. We're quote unquote or not but it was also the new head shots. It was also to my college friends. At least i don't think for them. It was entirely ethnic conversation. It was also a calpine. Just sounds sounds catchy. Well we'll berg. I forget her real name but like it's such a it's such a roman kim. Can you look up karen. Johnson does not have the same halls and the same thing so so to them. It was that right so is all those different factors but yes of course part of it was whether cow pen sounded more palatable june casting director or an agent in the case of barbara. The name had nothing to do with why she brought me in or so i i was told him i believe her. She was yes we honest tilt until she fired question my work ethic <laughter> i do wanna know what you lied about to get into sag basketball so i put basketball under special skills and laura call dwindling pay honey have an audition for you for a for nike commercial marshall and i had just taken tell me if he took his class joshua moldavan no music geography class but it was socio cultural geography the any now he's at swarthmore i think he was like a cool young professor who used to sweat on his students so like if you were sleeping class stand over you until a drop of sweat ah woke you up it was gross but he was also and deniable in court. You know what i'm saying is also a genius to do corp. Pundits yes sweating got arm. Yeah had just taken a class of his where he talked about. How nike was manufacturing shoes in china and he because he was this attractive white dude in the suit he would talk about how you know he would go go to inspect some of these plants and people would say oh you're an academic and you're this good looking white dude and they would give in his word that would give him this access and all these managers would joke with him about how many people lost their hands in these oh making people shoes so he would share these stories with us so when when lora called about this nike commercial really got to call this week. I'm going to say no because i need the job obviously not gonna change anything by not going. She goes honey. I just want to know so you you play basketball right now. I cannot just for everybody to know. I cannot play desk. I love it. I love shooting baskets. I am terrible so she sends me the information and it's <hes> the second floor of some casting office in santa monica and they go <hes>. Hey so listen. The.
"penn" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"Talking love it. I don't from it at all good. Yeah i really really i mean you have such an amazing time. It's nice to hear that it's like legitimately well a real hobby he is. We're not doing it here. We are on the patio at my house. Monica and i are debating some hot button topic. That's it. I'm into motorcycles and chatting yup yeah. What's the hottest button <music> recently. That's a dangerous question assets i mean i think we both know generally what it is well. I don't actually hottest. I most rocco's let's yes tiro hukou sitting it should be it should be right. We haven't even ventured into the tobacco bullets start by saying the reason they become hot. Button topics is that we both love each other so much and we would love to have the same point of view on things so when we don't it's got an elevated weight to it yeah and but this reminds me of a very good friend who i worked with in d._c. She's brilliant me is an environmental environmental lawyer and found out recently over drinks that she's not entirely sure about climate science and all oh you talking about well what do you how is the and i thought she was joking for the longest time. I don't understand where we we you. This can't be true right right and then and i was like is this like. Are you one of these people who doesn't think we went to the moon either. That's ridiculous. Of course we went to the moon. Well you know what i i'm glad you're defending all of these policies as an environmental lawyer. I think we're just gonna have to let this one be by itself so we talk about tacos thousand well but look. I say fuck that whole debate. It's a relevant. Why would we be using a resource. We knows finite why what our daily activity be figuring out which one on his infinite one of my favorite conversations that i had when i used to work in in d._c. Was with young evangelicals who didn't agree with the guy i was working working for on like any issue <hes> but they believed that they were put on god's green earth to take care of it and so whether they agreed with the science or not was irrelevant because they thought why are we a using finite resources reason and dirty polluting. Why don't we just be good about it. Let's have fucking solar everything and wind everything because it's just the wise smart the thing to do when you're finding with a wife or something and you're you're fighting about the silverware drawer. That's not the issue generally talk. No we know you professionally is kalpana yeah but that name is what we would call a stage yes but interestingly it is also your own. How do i say your birth name. Calpe norrkoping kalpana culprit gulping is like actually pronounce it. This is like a hassan hussin hustle yeah exactly these meetings. I need to know that there are two acceptable pronunciation of a word like there's only dax to my knowledge but yeah but the right comparison i always get in trouble so gulping is a it's a good drought the word or i think the if not sunscreen hindi but it means the object of the dreamer the person who dreamed about okay so because it's not an english word obviously we speak english is our first language and so you're gonna take turns into captain sure <hes> that's not wrong wrong. Necessarily i mean it's not right but it's not like it's it's more like saying that advertisement versus advertisement was right or wrong. No one is that in england and one who says here yeah. I know i know monica's like the runaway origin of where it's from where advertisement advertisement or advertisement started but whoever it started is probably the correct. I think let me be more clear so is obviously the real porno. Kalpa is fine. I feel fine about <hes> but yeah no. It's a it's a screen name a stage name and when i first moved to l._a. In nineteen ninety five to go to u._c._l._a. u._c._l._a. To brother we both graduated in two thousand. I don't think that anyone there. I didn't know you i didn't i know you're a forty thousand people but you're you're sociology and film. Yes and i was anthropolgy yeah so i think we are on the same end of the campus right yeah and maybe even had sociology 'cause it's very likely we have crossed paths numerous. It's likely we have the same class at the same time. Yes that is possible four hundred person lectures. What kind of student were you because i think we shared this that i was here to be a comedian. I went to college. Get my mom to pay my rent and to make her happy so i didn't live on campus. I wasn't like like fully immerse. Ideas was their learning taking tests and splitting. Were you having the college experience. Yes i so i moved from new jersey to u._c._l._a. So i moved out there. When i was was eighteen i was in a triple in reaper which was awful. I loved the dorms but i was in triple room which meant new. It's you know the size of originally crafted for one human seattle with these weird bunk beds but i loved it. I loved being at u._c._l._a. I ultimately decided to go there because i knew i wanted to get into film and tv. I grew up in new jersey right outside of new york city and i loved theater but i thought if i get into an l. a. school that's going to be my opportunity to go out there early and yeah and to get an education and i liked actually that u._c._l._a. Had a diversity of your education experience it was a huge school it all these experts teaching random classes but if you wanted to do your own thing you could and you could kind of pick and choose also huge nerd so i took for example there are i tried to take ellis to this premed life sciences class as an elective ah <hes> and failed it and had to drop but i remember being in class and you know not understanding something the professor said and asking the kid next to me in the door look at my paper. I was like <music>. I'm a theater major buddy. This is an elective. I'm not competing for mid school with you yeah yeah but there was intense. Shit like that like oh. This is like as much as i'm here to be an actor like you guys are legit doctors yet doctors in training now phrase e side note unrelated monica. Watch this documentary on white nationalist us and one of the things that came out. I think you'll have the same shock i did. Which is when i got to u._c._l._a. I was like okay. I think at the time it was like forty forty two percent asian thirty nine percent caucasian just the most multicultural place i'd ever been my life so when we watch this white nationals documentary his guy started tracking people that had been at charlottesville and then found them at other rallies and then found out who they weren't kind of exposed their identity. One of them was a medical student at u._c._l._a. l._a. With a government clearance at a weapons manufacturing facility out here in california in of all the things of all the fairy tales. I made up about my classmates while sitting in class. I would never have thought there was a white nationalist there. It seems like why would you go there. You know you can choose everything yeah yeah. Yeah you're coming to one of the most diverse schools planet in your white. Nationalist is this i. I was just like oh. I guess you really don't know anybody. He became a white nationalist after that that experience because he had some bad interaction. We couldn't think it's possible maybe he had the wrong triple room and rebirth <hes> yeah you get the wrong. Two guys might set you on a bad bad actually out so i was an r._a. My third year ahead resident who came to me and they teach you this in your r._a. Training any kind of role using this would never happen but there's this training scenario. Where what would you do. If one of your residents comes to you and says my roommate drew. A swastika left it on his desk. Oh aw what how old is this training. I grew up in new york. City date was a fairly diverse community middle school. You go to a bar mitzvah buckets every weekend like the idea that somebody would hold. These views was so old to me. Yes my third year when i was an r._a. Had a resident who came to me and he was very upset and he said my roommate left a swastika on his desk and i don't know what and i couldn't believe that so i mean it is shocking but take back. I'm like wow that that happens. Is there any way this person was scribbling absent mindedly or this seems very i'm amount on a dangerous limb well. When you started. I was going to make a joke about the old son's crypt. They're hindu symbol the we've covered that but then you kept going allies. This is not a joking time no he. He is what he meant by it and the whole intervention in what was done. I can't remember entirely. I think they obviously reassigned the room because it's one of those the racist kids right to express himself is also something that's a thing of of course but also i mean come on. That's not the kind of thing that you mediate on your own when you're right. You have to kick that up to oh. That's supervisor but i remember telling my supervisor. I'm like you. No i remember sometimes when when beef happened with my residents like somebody using a word that the other person finds offensive and and tell the kid who's using the offensive word like back you know always they go well. That's my right i have. I have a right to use outward. You can't tell me that i can't you like dude total. You absolutely have a right to use that word. Do you have to be an asshole right now. Have the right to be an asshole like. Where did you grow up that you feel the need like somebody's taking something away from you. If you also have have a right to shit on your dining room table every day that is a right people in america half that doesn't mean one should defend that right to shit on their dining room table slippery slippery slope. It is <hes> u._c._l._a. Yeah just have to give this shutout because that's where you asked about the screen name <hes> that's that's where it sort of came together many a late night in the dorms like sitting in these stairwells and talking about nothing with people that become your best friends. I think it was my into in my second year and we were talking about. I was trying to get auditions and i would every wednesday. I would go down to this new stint on gayley avenue and get backstage west. Oh oh yeah which is now. I think only online right yeah. I always felt like i was participating in. Someone's murder plot when i was submitting. I've i've met people in one bedroom. Apartments roles one hundred percent..
