Mark Walters: The 2nd Amendment Is 3-0 Against Anti-Gun Owners
"Because he ruled in our favor in the 2008 Heller case. He also in that decision Penn brilliantly by Scalia. But he also ruled in our favor in the 2010 subsequent case, the McDonald V Chicago case. And it's important to put this in context as we discuss the brewing case because the McDonald case was the Second Amendment foundation case brought against the city of Chicago and their handgun ban. And it was in that ruling in the McDonald case that found the Fourteenth Amendment protects the Second Amendment by incorporating it through the privileges and a privileges and immunities clause to the states as the rest of the Bill of Rights. So the New York case couldn't have even been brought or it might not have had if it were brought, it might not have been granted by the Supreme Court. And if it had, we might not have had the level of confidence in a victory without that Fourteenth Amendment, applicable to the states in the McDonald case. I know this gets a little confusing, but it's all tied together and thank God Thomas got the decision and thank God we waited, albeit 12 years for this particular case because it was as strong as the day is long. And the decision was actually better than we had anticipated. Our concern Carl, you and I talked about it on previous shows was we expect a victory, but how wide of a victory. And Thomas cast a net very wide. The Second Amendment is three and O against the anti gunners. We are on solid ground.
A Brief History of the English-American Experiment With Bill Federer
"Being the Americans, we kind of go into the private property direction, right? Yeah, so England tried a 15 year American experiment called the English Commonwealth. So the King Charles the first got defeated and 16 40 or so and got his head chopped off. In the glorious revolution. This is prior to that, but that is a key revolution in 1688. But this was like 1649 to 1660. It's called the English Commonwealth. It was an American experiment of a Commonwealth of covenant. They had no king. Oliver Cromwell refused to take the title of the king, he called himself lord protector. He did an okay job. He dies, his son, Richard, can't keep it together. And so William Penn's dad, sales he's an admiral. Sales over to Europe puts Charles the second on the throne brings him back and re Institutes the monarchy. And in exchange he gets in a state in Ireland and then he's a famous admiral and then of course his son found Pennsylvania. But so they had an American experiment for 15 years, but they brought the king back. America, because of a 3000 mile ocean, because Europe was the chessboard in America was sort of an afterthought. I mean, we lost money. It wasn't like Spanish gold anywhere. It was a loser. And because of that, the king said, look, just don't cost me any money and stay out of my hair. And so for almost a century and a half, the Americans got to practice self government, like training wheels. And that's the dilemma. We go into these countries, we get rid of Saddam Hussein. We give them a constitution identical to ours almost. And then one election cycle they vote in Sharia law. And we scratch our heads thinking gee, why didn't our farmer government work? It's like duh, they have an Islamic soil that you planted the seed in, where an America you had a predominantly judeo Christian soil. The Berlin Wall comes down. Help them set up governments almost identical to ours. It gets taken over the bly that black market, the mafia, the organized crime, we scratch our heads, thinking, why didn't it turn out like America? Well, you planted the seed in an atheistic soil. They had 70 years of atheism, right? And so it worked in America. You have seed and soil or form of governments like a genetically engineered seed, but you plant seeds in soil and the soil is a predominantly judeo Christian populace. Right. So that's why it worked in
How AJ Got E! On Board With His Talk Show
"Before I got my show and kind of had the doubts because I told him, I'm not going to be a typical talk show host. I just want people to promote their bullshit. I don't care about the next movie or the next book or the next album. I want to just talk about all different things. And by the way, I have a lot to say, okay? I have things that they want to hear about me. And they all looked at me crooked. I said, I've lived an interesting life. Trust me, I can match these people's story for story. They have a very hesitant. I said, watch, pick up the phone. I dial Jack Nicholson. Jack, AJ, how are you, Jay? You know, I told him at the show. Do you think he'd ever do it? I know it's a lot to ask. Well, if timing allows me, I think I can make that trip AJ, you know, blah, blah, blah. I call Sean Penn, same thing. Coal warm, baby. All right in front of The Rock.

Does Sean Penn Want to Go to Nuclear War With Russia?
"Let's listen to Sean Penn and what he said about nuclear war with Russia. This is very alarming, but it's also revealing. Listen. Well, even countries that have nuclear weapons can remain intimidated to use them. And we're seeing that now with our own country. And I fear what that legacy is going to be. We don't know one wants to see a nuclear company. I don't want to see one. Nobody at the same time, if only one bully is going to be able to use those weapons as a threat. We think what we're doing. Wait a minute. So Sean Penn wants to go to nuclear war with Russia? We shouldn't be intimidated from using our nukes, but what? What is going on? What are these far left radicals doing advocating war with Russia? And then think about it. The neocons, they always want a war. They want to go to war with Sweden. And the never trumpers. This is we need to go, we're not doing enough. We got to go. What's the one thing they all have in common? The America first agenda. They are collectively responding to what Donald Trump introduced in a powerful way. Put in this country first. Worried about our interests before we worry about Uganda's. Or Yugoslavia's. Or yes, Ukraine. Put in America first. Upends the globalist agenda. That's why they despise Trump.
Sean Penn Appears on 'Hannity,' Talking About Ukraine Documentary
"I loved every second of it. Listen to this. I said that I don't trust you. Is there a reason you didn't trust me? Yeah, there's a lot of reasons I don't trust you, but my trust or your trust, you know, there's so many people that don't trust their spouse and yet we've got to get on with life and we've got a situation I've never felt this way about where our country is. And what I experienced emotionally in Ukraine, where it had not we all talk about how divisive things are, how divided things are here. But when you step into a country of such incredible unity, you realize what we've all been missing. And I don't think that I've got time to indulge my lack of trust, which it becomes a petty thing as people and babies are being vaporized. And that these people are fighting for the very dreams that are the aspiration of all of us Americans. And we talked about that too. We did agree on that.

Left Wing Columnist Calls Freedom Convoy Racist
"Meanwhile The Washington Post published a opinion piece, portraying the freedom convoy as explicitly racist. And the writer, who is a PhD candidate in the department of history and sociology of science at the University of Pennsylvania. I guess she's not a member of the swim team. She said that the members of the freedom convoy in Canada were quote explicitly racist. And arguing for freedom is a quote key component of white supremacy. You sure she's a candidate for a PhD at the department of history and sociology at Penn, as opposed to candidate for, calm with the LA times?

Penn Female Swimmers Banned From Talking to the Press
"I remind you that the University of Pennsylvania has banned its female swimmers from talking to the press, Harvard has banned its female swimmers from talking to the press. These were once prestigious institutions. They are now cowards. Woke cowards, is there awoke, courageous person? You don't need any courage to be woke. So the question is moot as they say. Multiple swimmers have raised the issue multiple different times the University of Pennsylvania, the swimmer said, but we are basically told that we could not ostracise Leah by not having her in the locker room. And there's nothing we can do about it. We basically have to roll over accepted, or we can't use our own locker room. Now, listen. It's really upsetting because Leah doesn't seem to care. How it makes anyone else feel. This guy, Leah Thomas, is pathologically narcissistic. And that is why The New York Times loves him.

"Swarmer we used to swim as a man at University of Pennsylvania now swimming as a female does not seem to feel that there's a problem, doesn't make its unfair.

And the ladies have been told that they ought not to speak out against this transgender swimmer and solid result. The few that have spoken out have not used their names. Stunning, isn't it?
Manchin Casts Doubt on Biden’s Social Policy Bill
"Headline White House scrambles to salvage build back better Bill by Christmas. Now the Financial Times described as a 1.75 trillion, it's not. According to the congressional budget office, it's a $5 trillion bill. If you do what all Congress is doing, which is extend their one year programs and blow through their deadlines unless they have sunsets in them. So it's not 1.75. It's trip 5 trillion, and that's backed up by the Penn Wharton school analysis. Again, if you say, oh, this is a one year Bill. And we're going to end all these programs. We start, yeah, it's 2 trillion them, but it's not. It's 5 trillion and Joe Manchin stopped in the hallway. And according to The New York Times, he said that they need to pause for peace. He said that anything is possible here, and he's still engaged in conversations with The White House, but listen for yourself. Joe Manchin talking to CNN's Manu Raju yesterday cut number ten. But whatever we're considering doing or whatever Congress is considering to only should do it within the limits of what we can afford. And that means having a tax plan that's fair and equitable and keeps us competitive, but also makes everyone pay especially the wealthy pay their fair share too. See what that spins off and that's one 7 range then we should be spending whatever in that range as far as I'm concerned if it's whatever planet would be pre-K, child care and what you want in home care, then it should be ten years. It shouldn't just be one year three years or 5 years. And that would be, I think it would be very transparent for the puppy to see exactly what they'd be getting for what we're spending for ten years. So you won't support it if it needs programs or temporary. No, we're going to talk. We're still talking. I'm listening to everybody, but I'm just telling you you ask me about inflation is not transitory. It's alarming. It's going up and not down. And I think that should be something concerned about. Inflation is real. It's not transitory. It's going up, not down, that something we should be concerned about. And senator

That's got a great part of town square if it gets too crowded than nothing special and and it gets a lot of sharp elbows and and and so i'm very torn about it. I be less torn about it. If we and in in in an acting filmmaking stood up to our financial Lords and said you know there you have to preserve a exclusive theatrical releases of films. If we are to do this other stuff. I would like to see that movement but there is something as a as a filmmaker. I think i just fell in love with the girl that was the cinema. The big dark room. So i don't know that i would want to work as a director. Chew that in. But i certainly can get caught up as as an audience and there's some miraculous work that's being done on television. There's no question about it. Baby new ruined. You ruined film bateman. And then sean penn just confirmed it. And i'm with him and by the way it should be noted. Whatever sean penn's opinion is is also my opinion. It should be noted. I i think that What about the listener. There's a guitar over his right shoulder. Where where does music sit for you. in this world is it. A hobby is it a passion. Is it a. is it your next career. We're what's it do for you. It's the passion that i can't do. That's my one of my sons guitars. I i am terrible guitar player if i sang. You'd all be dead and it is. It is the thing that's the best medicine for me is listening to music I'm a very music dependent director in film. I again going back to that era that i grew up in you know there were the whether it was the graduate or or herald mater those films. They used songs as part of the story telling her as characters in the story. I have great affection for that kind of cinema. And i love working with musicians. I've had some really great collaborations that have been super enriching. Yeah tell me about working with better on on on the last film on such a huge fan of his. And i know you guys are close. What was what was that like well. Ed and i had worked on. We'd worked on a couple of films But together in the past but then significantly into the wild and you know he really became the hitter that put the ball over the fence and In the last inning and and and we had such a great experience and so when i started flag day. One of my go-to things as i. Send ed the script and say what do you think it had been from a from the early stages my sense that leading voice of it of the songs that would play would be female because it's a female driven story but that there was a balance between the father and the daughter where i felt that i could insert male voices at times and ed brought glen hansard in has a great. Did the sauce for one of the Brilliant songwriter and and then And then it was my daughter who is because i was listening to so many great female singers singer songwriters and all the usual suspects and there are a lot of people turned on onto others. But i couldn't find a voice that just seemed harmonious with my daughter's emotional spirit. And and then i asked her and she suggested cat power and so ed had had known her and i. It became kind of as well as a singer songwriter. On the on the movie he became kind of the curator of this song Bank on that thing and and worked with all of them and And they've got a record coming out of it which i'm looking forward to hearing because it's not only the songs that are in the movie songs. I suppose inspired by the story. Did he score it as well as he. Also the composer though the composer is my long time collaborator and friend. Joseph veteran so it's a he did the instrumentals but we at times borrowed from each other's themes and and took some pieces of instrumental from the songs and layered it in so that it was it you know. It was kind of a quilt. We put together. I can't wait to see no shit. God that sounds so cool. I've never been able to describe anything that i've done that and it's such an eloquent way. That sounds so makes people want to listen to it or watch it. Listen to sean. When was the last time you got in a fistfight. Be real be honest. It's been a long time. It's been a long time. It's fifth grade for me. I know you're not asking but it was. I missed is it. Fifth grade fifth extended fifth grade for many years in my own psyche. And i swung in a metaphor for my career. And hey sean penn You know first of all before we let you go. I have to say thank. You don't need to specify on the sean hayes. You're the doesn't need to god. Jesus i'm so sorry pen. Go ahead sean.

"Back to this show. Sean where do you stand on that. Going back to the to you having a conversation creative negotiation with the with the director. Where do you stand on that especially now having having directed since you went through that situation with Slesinger where do you stand on. Whose character is it. Is it the actress character. Or is it the directors character and How have you found your your flexibility Adjustment or you wanna start a fight what are you. What are you trying to get him. But i just. I mean i you know i i well i'll let you answer. I won't answer my own question. Goes i think it cuts both ways. Because you know my sense of working in the theater is that the directors principal job is to win the actor out of pendants on the director. you know you've got some point. Let those horses run together. Once they've got their coordinated interests In line to tell the story In film it's different. But i think that if you're not able to Let the actor own that character. Then you probably cast the wrong actor variances on that where there are times where you know. A director may understand in a and be able to push you to another level of the same Gap or not. Make you re- you know revisit. Some of the choices that you made but You do you certainly want that. The guiding energy on a set is that that actor speaks for that character. You i think as as an actor were tied. The designated bodyguard character were playing. Yeah and i I i mean you know. It's the the challenge comes with You know people who are given a part as opposed to audition for a part and so you don't really know what that actor is going to do. What the version of that character. They're going to be performing until it's about twenty minutes from shooting. You're saying it sucks to work with stars. A lot of directors have to kinda take what they get. And if you're like me that's a good thing. Because i got a real light touch with actors i love. I just assume they're going to give me the best that they can give. And then your job is to see okay. What version do they wanna play of this character. And i gotta help them kind of keep it on the on the road whereas you know i'll work with some directors where those you get the sense all their notes coming from a place of boy gonna get this actor to play the part the way that i've seen it all the way through pre-production Even when i read the script or developing it with the writer. And that's just to me. That's a just a false negative that a director will put on an actor because the audience hasn't read the script they've got they don't have the preconceived notion that director has and and now you're asking the the actor to go into areas that they're not instinctually driven towards and it's Yield a real lanky thing so it's great to hear you say there's a kind of you know approach. That is a win in doubt. Do nothing approach that sometimes frames this conversation for me. I i once had a conversation with marlon brando. Where he said this great thing. Because there'd been plenty of times where just notwithstanding being an actor or a director as a film audience. There are plenty of times where i was so moved by something. An actor did and then going back. I i'm watching it again. I still so moved. I couldn't find what the actor did. And in sometimes as marlins said when you have good writing good directing sometimes the job is not getting in the audiences way that they will do. A lot of the work of how that story is telling itself and so all of these approaches. I do think that you know directors who deny themselves the ability to be surprised by what they're actors bring are doing themselves in the project a disservice but there are times that You know that it goes back and forth. that is just a you can. You can get a lot of guidance from a good directors will. Do you ever want to go back and do a big fat comedy. Just do one big stupid hasty bad comedy you know. I had not been offered a lot of those really and I think as i got older my face became more disturbing. Unless it's comedy. But i just i have gotten to do a comedy. I've really enjoyed it but But and certainly. I would be interested in the comedy is. I wouldn't in anything sean. Hayes do you. Do you think you'll ever do a comedy. I knew we're gonna ask that so thank you It just depends. It just depends on what it's about. How deep i can find that guy. You know what. I was just thinking sean must be just basking in 'cause we're asking all these really important questions than we keep saying. And then asking sean hayes for a moment. Has these nanoseconds where he's like. They're asking me and do they know me. And we've been friends for twenty years wise. Yes i never could ask those deep questions but you know. So so sean penn. You're now you've got like you say your sixty one and you got a lot on your plate for for a guy who claims that he's in the the sort of the second half or whatever you don't see there's no kind of i kind of call bs. You're you're kind of right in your zone right now doing it all more than ever listener. You've got to know we're we're looking at this guy right now. This sean penn this this.

No there's no there's no ring light there. There's nothing i mean. Look crazy healthy. Are you hanging out with layered a bunch. I mean what's going on. I wish i was getting myself back into a post. Cove and fitness Has commenced I've i've begun that work but only begun it. What is that. what is that work for you. Well most starts with running either on the road or on a treadmill and then once i've got myself you know run out and i'll jump off that treadmill off the road into a weight workout and Try not to smoke as many cigarettes on the In the listener just so you know. He hasn't never had not had a cigarette. And i won't admit to to smoking's Would admit to it. But i'm with you. I call it job security for colleges. Oh my god. Don't say that way sean. What are you watching right now. Do you do you enjoy a streaming thing. What do you do. you don't want anything to do with it so you listen to music instead. Yeah i just Summer of soul which is incredible if anybody had seen it really incredible Does that loves movie right. Yeah that's amazing.

"And then she kind of went a different path. Well i i mean the the age i really got into. It was When i graduated high school late in my seventeenth year. bit we. We mentioned little house on the prairie. That was virtually just to put a couple of pennies in my pocket as as an extra was. No i didn't have any sense that though my parents were involved in theater and film i had no sense that that's the direction that i'd be going. I was spending my time in highschool reading books of f lee bailey about his cases and wanting to be a lawyer. Criminal defense attorney. 'wow then in senior year i started getting involved with my younger brother and a group of friends who had gotten hold of super eight camera with the magnetic sound strip on it so that you could actually make Talkies and we started making those because we were shooting an awful lot at night when other kids were doing homework. And you couldn't get them to come out and be your actors. I would be directing those movies and acting in them at a certain point of felt so invested in in film but there was. I didn't know what the outlet would be. I knew that to direct you need somebody to entrust millions of dollars on your back. So i went into a repertory company as an actor and very quickly became impassioned about that and and and working in class and so on and the next thing i knew i was working in the theater regularly and then from that into film and and after after about ten years of that eleven years of that. I finally got to do what. I started out with the intention to do at sage seventeen which was to direct my first phone. That's okay you know. I just watched the. I just watched. That fell kilmer documentary. I don't know if you've seen that. Yes i have seen. Yeah it's it's really really great and He's just seems like such a great guy such a trooper but But there's footage of hugh backstage in new york and you're also young and it was this mind blowing because a lot of people think. Oh you just come out of the woman all of a sudden you're a movie star but you know people know context about what it takes to achieve what you've achieved and to see that footage of you just as a kid just and i don't know what the play was but so cool to see that that he had that footage and then be to see that you all just hanging out like regular people backstage or super cool. Yeah i remembered that vel had you know this Video camera which was i think fairly novel thing. It's that you're like video camera. Wow you're going away. And he was in wisconsin video camera. Wisconsin maybe. I don't know it's good that you pointed. It was pretty scifi to me. And and he was consistent with it. and boy yes. Sean said i i mean what. What an extraordinary the creative Kind of magical guy. He developed into overtime And yeah it's it's really film. People should see it's sensational. Yeah i really cool you know. What's funny Sean that you started Not not you haze shut out. I'm gonna call. I'm gonna call you haze for the rest of the show. Sean share. that's fine. that makes you. You're going to defer to sean penn. But we you know you you did all this stuff and you worked as an actor and you did all that stuff and you really kind of as you said kind of trying to get to the thing that you would always set out to do which was to be director because you wanted to to do that and yet in that time you also created and had so many memorable performances which were just kind of a lot of ways. I'm not putting words in your mouth. But but like they were kind of on the road to doing what you wanted to do. And i i saw you talking about fast times recently in. And i'm sorry 'cause i'm sure you're maybe you're tired or maybe you're not tired of talking about it but i don't care let's either i got are here and we've got to talk about it. I mean you you actually created a whole genre of of character it's like it's like inventing the rbi baseball stat for longtime. Everybody had a bad guy and you invented the owner. Which to this day is a is a whole fucking genre from performance in a in a supporting what now. I'd say starring role because you really took that movie. And i remember the first time i saw it. I remember the feeling that it may. I remember laughing in a way that i hadn't laughed before and thinking like fuck what a and then it wasn't until i was older and going like wait. I didn't even recognize how genius that was until now like fuck me man like that movie. Where were you at in when that movie came because it was obviously a great movie and it's really good film. Where were you at at that point in your life when you read that and you're like all right just coli. I'm going to do this like where were you coming from. These people that you knew were these. You know you know it's funny. There's this thing about adoption of you know i was one time had a conversation with malcolm. Glad well and he told me that you know it took the computer. Mouse existed for twenty years before anybody started using it And i think that one of the things that happened with that movie in all circle back to where i was at i think that The nature of that character was in the easter that we weren't identifying it yet but it was it was in the easer which is why it kinda think caught like wildfire once it was on a forty foot screen. You said i know that guy. I didn't know there were two of them right. Like i literally dude exactly and in fact in my own life at the time i you know it is. You'd have to as cameron crowe if this is the case. I i'm sure i did. But i don't remember My sense reading his book which i read the book before a lot of people don't know that was a book before it was a screen play and I read that character. And i felt that that was what he wrote. you the rhythmically and so on and there was a guy who lived in my neighborhood who was a a very close model for it and In fact about a year ago. I was walking up for a beach pass and Very straight looking gentleman with his kids and his wife stopped and he said sean. How are you and so on and so forth and he had to. I said i'm sorry. A recognizing you. Of course. I hadn't seen him for over forty years. And it was the fellow that i really modeled the part on and he had his speech and become very clear. His eyes were clear. His parenting seemed very clear and it was really extraordinaire but but he doesn't know to this day that it was him that it was a you didn't tell him in that moment and that meeting on the trail that would seem like such a bomb to drop on your dad. I think i didn't because you know the poor guy the next thing you know you'd have journalists going over to interview the real coli and bothering house. Hey sean a dc any Do you see any parallel between what you really like to do. With acting and directing as far as moving people in affecting people. With what you do with your with your philanthropy with your with being charitable and on your activism and e- add. Does it come from the same place. this is my first shorter question the night before it. Sean penn before you answer that we celebrate how short seasons question was for the first time. You guys got enough of that right. I wish we have to get a hoodie or something. That.

Now i was. I was coming down the canyon. And i was noticing that it was sunny. And you're like oh. Do you just want to guess what i'm gonna say you wanted to.

That's exactly what's i get it with you. It is that you're boring her and she's not wrong because you're a little bit slow in to deliberate sometimes note with me. It's not that see. I'm able to see. I know i i was listening to What the tony hawk episode today. And i'm like jesus chasing i you know. I talked to myself in third person. The car get on with the question. Like the listener and the questionnaire. Questioner questionnaire subject interviewee They go ahead and just chop it often. Let them talk. Yeah no but sometimes you have to relate to quit question really question for tony hawk. That was fucking. I always do though.

I listened to it as well as the other day and We got burned on the broadway question. When i said i made fun. And then he was. Like i am doing a broadway show i know how about that god. We're also dumb. I haven't finished the episode yet. How does it end We all done. We all die. We offer and the butler did it. Oh but here's the good news. We have the butler. Hey listen I wanna get to our guest because our guest is is a very busy person. I'm so same. Thrilled is is the like the understatement of the century. I'm so excited to have This guy on our program He is a prime minister of canada. Credible artist an incredible activists who this isn't one of these things where like activists for ten minutes and then like good. Everybody notice like back to doing what i do. This is a person who's Not just talking to talk but walking the walk and it's really fucking admirable and incredible especially in a time that's so complicated and so many issues are pressing in so many real fucking ways. This is a boots on the ground activists. This is a fucking artist Who shares with you jason. Something that they That not not a lot of people know that you both basically got your start on little house on the prairie. This andy dick no. This person is a five time academy award nominee in two time academy award winner for best actor. I gotta get right to this. Is sean penn shammai. Audrey sean penn i fill you started on little house in their prairie summer job as an extra yeah incredible. Oh wow that's so cool. Were you sitting on a folding chair. And holding a whole i. It's funny you ask that because the principal memory. I have was when they broke for lunch. They said we just need to get first team through. Well i i didn't feel. It was proper to go to an organized lunch. That wasn't within the time period. So i stayed out in the sun valley shoes. They got back and we're ready to shoot. I fell down from sun exhaustion. You're gonna say that you went in you. Your own butter sean. I just said this. Today i was sitting on the couch with my husband's got your trailer was playing for your new movie called flag day flag day flag day flag day and i said one of the greatest grips i've ever read in my life. I said that movie looks amazing. There's nothing this guy can't do. It already looks incredibly performance. Just from the trailer is incredible. So it's so bizarre that you're sitting here right now is just an hour. Goes like that guy's amazing. I was gonna get to flag day. Later but sean get right into flag day. Let's talk about it man. I mean this areas. I just did. It looks incredible. I don't nothing about that story. I know nothing about any adjust literally just an hour ago. Said that movie looks amazing. I will say that. That's great to hear i. yeah it was a scripted. Came to me many years ago based on jennifer vogel's memoir flimflam man As a father daughter story in which Which is led really by the daughter who plays jennifer vogel and played by my daughter. Dylan penn school really had done little parts and things here and there over the years i was. She was reluctant to try to pull this one off and then just stepped into it is truth machine and and gave us something magic. So it's a movie. I've got several reasons to be excited about. My son is also in an opera. Jack that Cool so yeah. Did you try a long time to get them to to work with them was it. did it take a lot of convincing. It was in particular with my daughter. She she was a of the school thought as a teenager that the the work that her parents did was absolutely silly. Dressing up adults dressing up playing and it took her time to acquire a respect for the work and for the people who it In that sense and an and so she yet she had always been interested in being behind the camera to to be in the film industry. And so i would go to dylan every couple of years. when this script would appear in flag day would appear because by appear. I mean the journey. It goes on when you can't get the actress you want. And in this case her face was imprinted on that role to me And and so you have to tell those producers you guys should go on your way and find somebody else to do this and then it it. Fortunately came back around at a point where she had. She felt she had lived enough life to invest in an understanding it And and had spent enough time on sets to kinda get her sea legs in that sense and then she just came out and rocked it so it was. Yeah it was. It was a long time because she was very reluctant about it. Yeah that's how does she gain the respect. For what what you and robin deal. Did it take her Just trying it and going. Oh wow this is. This feels different than what i thought. I think it was more or less that. There's an irreverence that children have for parents. Who aren't doctors. So you get right. Which i understand of course And and so it. Sort of an exaggerated reaction for a time but then as she started to be you know moved by the work that people do on both sides of the camera and movies and calm and and Provoked by it and And we're she was being hit by it as she perhaps. At a younger age was being hit by paintings or music then it just developed into a more mature sense of it in a in a more mature. Embrace of what was your relationship to. Did you identify with that because of course you up. Your dad was a filmmaker. So what was that like for you to have to have your own kid who had a different relationship to the arts and like you got into it so young..

"For free. Welcome back to the sunday. Sit down podcast now. More of my conversation with sean penn. You've been nominated before but you on your first academy award for mystic river. He went again for milk. What did it mean to have that trophy to your life into your career. You know i. I don't know if i had the conversation with other people who have won that water. Any of the academy awards. But i would suspect that i'm not alone in that. The biggest part of the feeling of that is as i talked about. Another subject is relief. Because you've to you know anybody who's been involved in film that got campaigned for nowhere. Studios worded or publicists supported. It's movement where they people worked endless endless hours to get you know people to see the film and all of that stuff to be around all of that. You're seeing all of that and to some degree it's on you and you would love. I'd love to say that you know you hear your name and you're just like oh. Wow no you just say. It reminds me of them. Steven wright had a thing talked about five years. Old watching tv and smokey. The bear comes on and says only you can prevent forest fires a lot of pressure. It's a lot of pressure. So i find winning in me. Awards a great relief. Well it's probably to someone who was respected nominated before it just to sort of clear the decks of that okay. We got that done now. Have we don't have to talk about it anymore. Yeah sean thanks so much for the time. Congratulations flag day. Happy birthday thank you. We're going to get you one of those slight steaks with mustard for all time to see a man thank you. Thanks janet my big. Thanks again to sean.

"God you're at household now it's back jerk shows over and we want to do that at all so tell her and i had this conversation about. Could you do bajic with respect. That is a conversation we've continued for. You know forty seven years and I think that The bit that i brought to magic is maybe someone who didn't like magic Teller had the real love in his bones of magic and i have a deep discomfort with the basic Insecure condescension me. One of the things we push so hard for on our tv show fool us Was to try and we were. I think we've been a little successful to move magic To other than straight males we had I'm very proud to say we've had the first Person on our show that's That was transgendered came on our show as a male came on. Our show is a female and shows are show to be the first to be the book heads of that which i'm very very proud of. We've also gotten a used to be. No girls came up after the show to show magic tricks. We doubt but maybe one girl a year and maybe two boys and night that would say penn and this magic trick with their with their families taking video and i will say with a great deal of pride after twelve years of pounding at this It's now almost equal and we do fool us. We now have women on the show that say during the interviews. They got into bajic as a girl when they were watching our show. And i think that the reason for that i mean. There's there's horrible reasons for that. The magic circle in london did not allow women until the nineties and It is noticed by some that. Ibm is the international brotherhood. How magicians it's not welcoming at any girl that went to a magic convention. Ten years ago twenty years ago thirty years ago forty years ago. No it was very unpleasant atmosphere and i try tried to take credit but i don't really deserve it. The real credit goes to the internet. Because now you can learn stuff about.

"Leadership once blackwell was gone. What penn woodsy was returned to the frustrating status quo that had largely led him to install blackwell in the first place. Once again pen found himself having to write back to pennsylvania complaining about the complete lack of contacted news. And if you are curious the colony still was not sending any of the money that he so desperately needed. William henn had walked into a situation that was ultimately difficult for him to overcome. His appointment of blackwell had hurt his reputation back. In pennsylvania penn himself was stuck in england awaiting trial on charges of treason. Those charges would eventually be dismissed in sixteen ninety three however the effect of the charges that william penn was in england when he so desperately needed to be back in pennsylvania however despite this fact it isn't as the william penn hopped on a boat in sixteen ninety three. It would be another six years before. Penn would return to the pennsylvania colony. This means six more years worthy colony continues to move any direction that is not consistent with his vision. Well he is left largely on the outside next time we are going to continue with our exploration of pennsylvania as we move the colony ford on into the eighteenth century.

"For william penn personally this period of absence from the colony was he time that he grew increasingly frustrated. About what was going on there. He was not a fan of the way. Things were trending well to some degree you may expect. Pen was being flooded with complaints about the colonial issues. They needed help with the reality was actually quite. The opposite pen was not in the colony and quickly. He became out of sight and out of mind. This would end up. Being quite frustrating for penn as he repeatedly did ask for news of what was going on back on the ground in pennsylvania would often find himself in the position of having direct back to pennsylvania. Saying hey guys what's up oftentimes in response answers providing very little detail at all about the colony and other times. They simply ignored him. William penn was for all intents and purposes living in the dark about his colony to make matters worse the guy who he had said to help get control of the situation and get the connie back under control. Was david lloyd who would quickly become amongst his most vocal critics. As a quick moment of digression you probably notice that we have both eight. Thomas lloyd and david lloyd. I cannot come from that. These guys were actually related. However most of the places where i see it addressed they are referred to his cousins. Regardless of which. Lloyd we are talking about at this point however they both now seemingly are hostile to william penn as we reach july of sixteen eighty eight at penn may have begun to realize just how much danger james the second was really in he would make an utterly baffling decision. Penn had grown increasingly frustrated with the situation in pennsylvania. Upset over the lack of contact and a continuing failure of the colony to money. Pen was none too pleased with how his colony was functioning. The news that did reach him told a story of factionalism internal squabbling armed with that knowledge. Penn.

"I used to come home from working. The sites here los angeles or or across the country. Turn on the news at night and it was maddening because on the ground is implementors. We knew what the simple basics were. The job was not rocket science. It was pretty simple but even if the but to understand it was to understand which parts of it to focus on and there was so many things that hold political part of it and the the idea that the the masking politicized and all that it's really lunacy and i just like to think that again with the temperament of the current leadership if we can all partner with that whatever political beliefs are and just find our way through his country. All of that will settle. We'll get to a good result. I think what's most maddening to me about anti nascar's and this is not me getting on a high horse or anything or or getting on a soapbox but what i i've always noticed is that the climate deniers the vaccination deniers the mask deniers. They're basically saying. I don't trust this thing that i can't see and yet they're more than happy to enjoy the fruits of science and engineering with their pickup truck with their flat screen television. I mean there's so much that i don't understand that i can't see that i benefit from directly in my life every single day That has not been politicized. And everyone's enjoying the benefits of those things. So why do we just draw tiny little circle around. Let's cover our nose and mouth and that will help. Increase are a decrease our likelihood of getting covert by ninety five percent period. Why is that. Suddenly suspicious but hd television is not suspicious ed to get takes courage to have a genuine level of faith in in humankind's ability to do something positive together at that these this other group you're talking about our our the original scaredy cats. They can run around flex their muscles and yelled bad. Words carry guns and all of that stuff but but but they're at the at the core. It's a scaredy cat culture and it's a question of how how to help give people enough courage to put on a fucking masks in dude do your service to this country in the world. Well we are really at the end of our time. I've thoroughly enjoyed this. I did want to pitch you one concept. Which is if i can get the funding and i get the script together. I would like you to play me. Okay in a feature length film. Sean and i think. I know that you're doing you less acting. You used you 'cause you're devoting so much time to helping the world but i think this is an opportunity for you. I think it's an opportunity for me. It's an opportunity for you to stretch as an actor stretch really stretch. Yes you're going to be six four in this. This reminds me a terrific actor joel edgerton. When he first came from australia the states we sat down for coffee and he said to me i said what do you want to do is i just wanna get out a year without having my underpants on the outside of my tights so the answer is no. I don't know if i could play a superhero. Nice very nice. Nice always wrapping. No candy coated complement. And you're off the hook. Hey sean i have to say i i i love it l. Say this. it's very interesting because people can have a a certain persona where someone might be intimidated to speak them. And i'm gonna put you in that category with like jack. Nicholson where. I don't think i'd go right up to them. I wouldn't go right up to. I wouldn't cross the room being me. You can but. I would not cross a room ago. Jack baby it's conan. I've met him his delightful person but he has that persona and you have. I suspect people would be somewhat wary of opening openly Walking up to you. Because i think you've cultivated over the years but i'm not sure i'm not sure how sean penn's going grog grumpiness. I think is says it. Thank you thank you. I had that written on my hand grumpiness. I heard a great story about deniro once. I don't want to out the person. But i am. Someone i know was working with robert deniro and he was going to be around for a couple of days and robert deniro was sitting at a table and there was a bunch of people. Working on the project is person sat. Opposite robert deniro. Who was reading a newspaper and said hey i just wanted to mention. I never going to be hanging around with a couple of for a couple of days working with each other. I understand that. You have this town house and i also live in that same area and robert deniro just lowered the newspaper.
