I look i wait all year for that. Listen before i get started man. We miss you. We didn't know we didn't know how good we had it. We just didn't we boy. We know now this. We'll get into that but less let let's talk about a promised. Land i memoir memoir right. Now everybody's available in print and audio book And and book the promised land covers your historic campaign in two thousand eight and all the major events doing your first time as president. Tell us what what was the inspiration for doing a memoir now. Well look. i started Shortly after i left office And you know. Because i had written two books before i felt obliged to write it myself and and You know i'm a slow writer Because there was a lot of stuff to write about and You know. I always wanted to tell a story that allowed people to see behind the curtain on the presidency Understand not just policy but also the personal to understand you know How it had an impact on me and michelle in terms of our marriage How our kids adjusted to it All the mazing people who helped us behind the scenes And you know we sometimes don't get the credit For the work that helps to get you know a healthcare bill pass or To to be able to get bin laden and and and hopefully especially young people who read this Who may be asking themselves. How can i have an impact. How can i make a difference You know they'll have The ability to kind of read this and get a little bit of a roadmap about How all this stuff works. Wow where did you. When did you first get the notion. I've always wanted this. When i get the notion that you could be president. You know love described. You know. I started off in public life As a community organized and i was a little skeptical about politics and so's michelle by the way and and it was really Sort of an experiment. When i first ran in the state legislature. Let's see how much of a difference i can make doing this And then i ran for the us senate. And i won the nomination. I think it wasn't until i spoke at the democratic national convention in two thousand and four I it was a good speech. But it really blew. And the speech where i talked about the audacity of hope and I think really burst on the national scene. And the way it resonated yeah describing the book just that kind of sense. You have when you know you're connecting with an audience and that audience was millions of people around the country who tuned in at that point. The chatter starts picking up So that even by the time i arrive at the senate i'm a brand new senator but people were already talking about This was somebody who could potentially run at some point but even by even then. I didn't think i was gonna run right away and i think it was a combination of timing. I had oppose the war in iraq. Which made me somewhat unique among You know the major candidates or potential candidates and and that's where the democratic party was moving You know So a little bit a combination of of being in the right place at the right time with a message that resonated with people. Wow you know. Man i appreciate you saying that because i always been curious about that. How that how. That notion can even come about such such a big step.

"Banned the defense from presenting that testimony in the courtroom and for presenting that witness in the courtroom and didn't even allow the jury to know that they former attorney general Had been scheduled witness was not allowed to appear. And of course the most fundamental thing which we've mentioned before was refusing to allow bobby seale to have his attorney present and then refusing. His repeated demands that he be allowed to represent himself completely unconstitutional. The chicago seven trial. And we'll hear. The film is a little misleading. The film has a happy ending with tom. Hayden defying the judge. Well everybody cheers That's the way. Aaron sorkin likes films to end. But in real life the trial ended with guilty. Verdicts against five of the seven defendants. The everyone was found innocent on the conspiracy charge but guilty of incitement to riot. They were then sentenced to five years in prison for that crime and then the judge also gave each one of them long sentences for contempt of court some as long as four years more for contempt of court. Now normally if you're being facing more than a six month sentence for contempt of court you get a separate jury trial. He denied them a separate jury. Trial despite repeated protests from the attorneys and that also was overturned on appeal but the end of the trial was very grim and miserable experience for everybody what parallels do you see between the chicago seven and the protests of today and how the police have handled those protests world. Today's the biggest differences the today's protests have been a hundred times. Bigger wasn't just in one city. Did people took to the streets and in many places where attacked by the police. It was everywhere in america. Big cities and little cities and it wasn't just young people. It wasn't just black people. It was a very multiethnic multiracial Wave of protests that we had this summer on a scale that we've never seen before in america. So i think what happened. This summer is much much better much. Bigger and stronger and smarter than anything that happened in the sixties including the chicago convention protests. One of the most important thing is there weren't these kinds of splits in the demonstrations of the past summer. they were very focused and very coherent..

"A gagged in chains in an american courtroom. What was bobby seale doing as a defendant in the first place he really shouldn't have been there. He had not been any part of these demonstrations the panthers were not planning to demonstrate. Didn't demonstrate didn't call on their members to demonstrate its national convention and in fact they called it a great phrase customer ristic like you know being custer heading into the battle that he was sure to be massacred in a so. I was in chicago for a total of four hours. He gave a speech in grant park in the afternoon Which was mostly about the black panthers. Ten point program defunding the police and You know black power in black communities. But since the panthers were the most famous black radical group in america Nixon wanted to make them part of what was going to be the biggest show trial of radicals in america so he was added in probably it was part of the prosecution strategy also to frighten the jury of middle class white people with an angry. Black man didn't work out the way they did it No partly it was be as you say. It was because of judge. julius hoffman. Did this most unexpected thing. He should have allowed. Bobby seale to have an attorney. I mean that's kind of basic right to make a good point. It was his constitutional right. And that's when he kept claiming. Asserting hoffman. in some way you know when you read the transcript. Now you just can't believe a judge would ever do this It's it's horrifying in some ways. It's hilarious i mean. Every time the prosecution says objection of the judge says sustained sometime. In every time the defense's objection the the judge says overruled. He doesn't let them state their objection. So is unbelievable bleep biased. Which of course led to the entire all the convictions being overturned on appeal. But in some ways. In retrospect this played very much into the hands of the defendants who wanted to expose the injustice of the american legal system. And how the courts were in the service of the repressive forces of the nixon administration. I mean he could not possibly have been any clearer in any other judge would have had a very different kind of trial. That didn't fulfill everything that that the radicals were saying about justice in america. So we've been talking about judge. Julius hoffman. what are some of the things that he did. Some of the other things he did that. We're so Norm breaking for for a judge. Well he some ways aside from having a black man chained and gagged in the courtroom.

"My guest. John wiener hopes that president trump does not watch. Aaron sorkin film the trial of the seven weiner wrote in an article published last month in the nation that he feared trump would take away the wrong message and tell us attorney. General william bar to do with the leaders of today's protest movements like black lives matter what nixon did to the chicago. Seven and put them on trial for conspiracy to cross the lines and incite riot. Weiner is the author of a book about the chicago. Seven trial that includes very abridged version of the trial. Transcript the book. Conspiracy in the streets was first published in two thousand six. It was reprinted to coincide with aaron sorkin film which is now streaming on netflixif. The chicago seven originally the chicago. Eight ra leaders of the movement against the war in vietnam in august of nineteen sixty eight. They organized protests that drew thousands of people from around the country to chicago to coincide with the democratic national convention. That was being held there. This was the convention that nominated hubert humphrey who lost richard nixon. The protesters were met with thousands of police. National guardsmen soldiers resulting in battles that were broadcast on national. Tv shocking americans who watched as young people were clubbed and teargassed eight months later early nixon's presidency. Eight leaders of the political and cultural left including bobby seale co founder of the black. Panthers were charged with conspiracy to incite riot. Seal who was chained and gagged in the courtroom during part of the trial was later severed from the trial and was not retried for the chicago charges. Weiner right at the end of the sixties. It seemed that all the conflicts in america or distilled and then acted out in the courtroom of the trial. Weiner is also the author of the book set the night on fire about the protest movements in nineteen sixty s. la and. He wrote an earlier book about john. Lennon's f. b. i. files jon wiener. Welcome back to fresh air. The antiwar protests that were talking about we're stage to coincide with the democratic national convention. Why were they protesting at the convention site in chicago. Well the war in vietnam had been basically. A war started and escalated by democratic presidents especially lyndon johnson Lyndon johnson had to withdraw from his own re-election campaign something that has never happened before or since because there was so much opposition to him from within his own party because there were now half a million troops in vietnam and it was clear that america was never gonna win this war. So if you wanted to protest the war you had to protest against the democrats. The republicans really didn't have much to do with it and that's why the antiwar leaders of set out to organize what they hope would be hundreds of thousands of people protesting in the end. It was one of the smaller protests of of the sixties. But as as you said The violence of the police the police riot and the police right on tv made it historic event. How did it turn into a riot. What happened well..

Still it must be. So we'll aggravating. Yes thank you. Aggravating is a good word. Yes how do you deal with. Where do you channel it. You work out a little harder in the morning. You hit that treadmill. A little tougher One of the things. That is a strength of mine. I think sometimes maybe people considered a weakness because it frustrates them to see me not get more frustrated is i tend to take the long view on things and i try to remind myself that history does not just go forward to go sideways. It goes backwards sometimes. The path of progress is bumpy. And they're going to be setbacks and look you know the civil war and the thirteenth and fourteenth and fifteenth amendments were followed by jim crow and the clan and lynching and that was horrific and heartbreaking. That didn't negate the the importance of the thirteenth fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. That it just meant that some bad stuff happens but you keep on trying. And i think that's how i ended up feeling about what i got under the presidency. I felt that we had advanced the causes that i cared deeply about an mattered to the american people. Not all of them. Were going to stick exactly the way. I wanted That didn't negate the importance of pushing to try to get that stuff done even in those areas where donald trump completely reversed course. Now look do. I occasionally curse When i'm reading the headlines over the last four years yes. I do have i if i had some venting or ranting On with michelle over the dinner table. Absolutely i don't want to pretend like there haven't been moments where where i am at the same the presidency and i try to show in this book that whatever may have looked like no drama.

That were amplifying this baseless and ultimately racist claim It was mainstream media. I mean some of the same folks who were very critical now. Donald trump and had been critical throughout his presidency. Regularly had him on their show because he boosted ratings and They thought well you know this is. This is a spectacle that attracts eyeballs and and that was frustrating to me And it it gave me a sense of the danger of in this mass media environment if somebody is willing and able to just consistently repeat a falsehood particularly one that taps into maybe pre existing anxieties that Certain segments of the american people feel than it can end up getting traction and the internet's made it even worse. You know you this. Some of the ridiculous claims about you that were made. And here's when i hadn't heard that you've been a gay prostitute like where did that come from well but this is this is my point. It doesn't come from anywhere. It what you saw early on in our campaign and this proceeds trump this is why i say donald trump is. He's been an accelerate but he didn't cause office. I'll the original birther argument actually came from traces. Back to a perennial eccentric. Right wing candidate in illinois is running for the us senate years.

We had at times during the campaign. And we we joke around. And we'd less some of the latest Conspiracy theories that were floating around I think what's changed. Is that that kind of Hothouse of conspiracy theorizing that paranoid style of politics in america. That's always been there. It's just that it wouldn't pop what what's changed is just that the the barriers for that breaking out into mainstream sir circulation that started to whatever those were those started to break down The guardrails broke down during the course of my presidency partly driven by technology partly driven by the realization certain politicians.

"And expertise and support. But this is their heroism that fosters ease with a lot of help from the united. States. Here in America though we had to get ready, we had to get tests ready. We had to get the potential to treat people ready. We had to get medical centers with the specialized expertise to treat someone with a disease like a Bola Ready. We had to deal with the fact that people did indeed contract the disease. So other people were suspected of having the disease they had to be identified, tested, and screened, and all these things, and so we had to get all that ready on. A, very very large scale. Now, I do have to say this in fairness covert was a much bigger problem than a bola it was spread much more around the world was much harder to contain. This is a bigger challenge. NO QUESTION THAN A Bola but a bola was a serious challenge. WE ENDED UP WITH TWO AMERICANS DYING FROM A Bola. We took the death toll in west Africa down from a projected toll of a million to about twelve thousand. That's still a tragedy but a lot less. Severe. Than it could have been in why what's the all that there was no, and this is the thing about trump. There was no one magic answer. There was no one press conference that solved. It was many many many step process. The President Obama said Hey let's go do everything we can to fight it and it all started of course with science. Now with denial not with fiction with President Obama saying there's Tony Fao g there's these other doctors Tom Frieden Nikki Laurie, other bunch of doctors. These are the experts their expertise is going to drive our strategy. We're going to be candid. We're going to be transparent we're GONNA listen to the experts were going to do what it takes to get this under control overseas to protect the American people here at home. It doesn't sound like that's a plan that a leader wouldn't think of that sounds like common sense. I'm curious though you have this extremely deadly disease that all of a sudden arrives on American shores how does an administration or how? Did the Obama Administration find out that someone brought a Bulla into our country. We found out because someone showed up in a hospital in Dallas where no one was really expecting it to arrive stop a major city of immigration from West Africa into the United States Dallas Texas. But someone did show up there had some of the symptoms was misdiagnosed at first I case ever in the US ultimately properly diagnosed and treated fortunately that was one of the two people who died he was diagnosed too late. The latest on the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed here in the united. States, at this hour health officials say the unidentified patient is fighting for his life at a hospital in. Dallas the CDC confirms the man tested positive for the virus but is unsure how he became infected he took a flight. From Liberia to Dallas on September nineteenth to visit family four or five days later, the man to feel sick right now the CDC says, they were quote zero risk to others who were on board that same flight the agency says, the man did not show symptoms at time and was not contagious. Officials are also working to quickly trace the patients path and to determine with whom he may have had close contact. That was a big flare wakeup call that look these cases will come here. We're going to see others in the end we put together a screening system where anyone who came to our country from West. Africa was screened in the airports where they arrived they were gone through a bunch of tests, and then they identified as a potential case contacted every single day for the potential infection period of twenty one days to make sure they weren't running a temperature. They didn't have any symptoms if they ever did they were immediately taken. To a testing center where they were isolated and tested. Until we got back those test results and that process is how we identified doctor Craig. Spencer, who was a person who had fought a bullet in west Africa real hero an unbelievable person came back from fighting a Poland West Africa to his home in New York City and wound up developing the symptoms and was taken to Bellevue Hospital in New York, the oldest hospital America by the way and was treated successfully and recovered and has now gonNa do many great work since then..

Well I'll tell you. Thank you saw the attorney general in Minnesota Kief Alex caution. Now have to pray on the jury. Is that where we got to focus on that? We get my opinion. Heads will roll on this one because it has created such a stir outside of the African American community. When the senator of that state gets involved. With the mayor of that city gets involved When. People around the nation outside of our race. Get involved. Heads will roll because now you have to explain it under peer pressure, because now as you go to your country clubs, and you go to your social gatherings, and you go to your churches, and you go to your houses.

Appreciate it very much as well the part the people that I'm missing. And I'm going to release a letter next week. I'm trying to find the right way to put it. But I WANNA. Write an open letter to the Southern Baptist Convention. The largest white evangelical or In the world. I'm surprised. That when we have these moments like this that I never hear from. This religious organisation. This group of Christians well. Steve the KU. Klux Klan a used to burn crosses, and that's the Christian symbol across you know what I mean. Yeah, so. It doesn't surprise me. It doesn't mean you would think as Christians because that's what we're taught to love. One another and all of that you know to follow. Jesus follow Christ and everything, but it hasn't been the case. You're absolutely right. They've been conspicuously silent. I'm absolutely an I'm not angry. Because I don't really. Expect anybody. But. Since. We have this. Such for the first time an outcry outside of the African. American community is becoming even more alarming. For the ones who don't. And I'm just wondering what that organization says about. This and I've been trying to do some research. They're mostly conservative of values, which I'm okay with conservative values but does. Those conservative values include people of Color. Is what I WANNA know. Churches on. Sunday, yeah, I just want to know is that is a southern baptist, convention is that inclusive of blacks are? They welcomed their I'm not talking about wouldn't be yeah. I WANNA learn more about that. You know what I would love to interview. One of the top representatives from that organization. To, find out more about what they stand for and represent because they gotta be a great Christian. Organization and they have to be open to all people, and they have to be considered of the teachings of Jesus Christ, so I would really like to know. Why is it that we always just see black ministers? Confused, what's your? Is Valid. What you're asking is valid. Valley. And we need everybody. TB An asset. That will be neat. I, mean you ask it? If not now when Steve of not now win, but a lot of those churches are very segregated on Sundays if you just. Pay Attention. They are unfortunately. That's the way it is. I mean you know it's. It's a lot of black churches. Deaths segregated to for the way they worship. I don't have a problem with that. I have a problem with when you see injustice, and you see something morally wrong. That goes against the teachings of. Christ, why there a banding together all just Christie's. You can go to whatever church you because I like drones and stuff so I wanna go to church where the jam.

Take a listen now I want to speak directly to the young men and women of color in this country. Who as planned to so eloquently described had witnessed too much violence and too much debt, and too often. Some of that violence has come. From folks who were supposed to be serving and protect you.

Even as you may feel angry, because you have the power to make things better, and you have helped to make the entire country feel as if this is something that's got to change. You've communicated sense of urgency that is as powerful. Born of as anything that I've seen. In recent years. Wow. See Ladies and gentlemen. See. If you're in. A leadership capacity and you don't have that type of sensibility right there. Then you're lacking in a major quality that would make you inadequate or or or meaningful leader, and that's what's missing in this country because I've noticed president, trump. He used to give a news conference every day on when when the it was running Santa Claus. But then what happened was as he saw, he couldn't beat this invisible enemy, and that death toll kept climbing up behind him, and under him, he got off TV. Hey, mentioned Kovic Sis. So what he had to do was he had to find a visible enemy, and again it was uh us just like it was Colin Cabinet and his visible enemy became us, and so now guess what he has not opened his mouth to say anything about social injustice. Equal rights unfair treatment. He made that call to the Floyd family, but that's caused. They told him that was it. He hasn't spoken to the protesters to give them hope clarity. And then he waited on the right time to come up with another enemy and guess what it is. The protest is dead, burning and looting, and now he wants to call himself the law and order president. That's what he attacked US hisself to is the negativity versus what we just heard from a person who understands real leadership, because he undestood real service bright if you never been a great service. You can never be a great leader that's. True. But, what about the people on Social Media?

Trump's relationship with the remaining living presidents with Kate Anderson brower author of team of five the president's Club in the age of trump and tra mainly course correspondent for MSNBC and host of the into America. Podcast Tremaine. What does this all say to you about the state of politics in two thousand twenty? You know we're we're at this place now and I think it's it's unclear whether we'll ever be able to go back. Whatever back means right to the good old days of politics when it was you know adversarial But there was decency and Decorum. I think this administration has intentionally sought to kind of undermine the previous in such a way That I think it says something really bad about where we are as American because again it trickles down to those voters and the people and even though for many. It's a horse race. It's about ego. There are real policy implications when you go down to the ground you know when I talked to voters all across the country. Black voters especially They see clearly how divergent and dangerous They feel this administration has been in trying to undermine every step of the previous administration. The president wrote President Obama's legacy but trump the trump though you funny that you say that because trump thinks that these former presidents are the ones that have been undermining him since they of course because he has to be aggrieved. He has to have an adversary. He has to have an enemy. He has to have someone to lash out against and for many people you know. He does represent something to a lot of people that make America great again and a lot of people have been questioning. Great Win. Give me a year. Give me a decade. Tell me exactly how we'RE GONNA restore America to greatness for those most vulnerable and marginalized communities. Who are now feeling the wrath the brunt of this incendiary language the disrespect but also attacking policies. That helped a lot of people the affordable care. Act You think about what Jeff sessions did on his way. Out of office kind of undermining. The consent decree process which held police departments across the country accountable. After the Trayvon Martin's and Michael Brown's and all the fergusons of the world right and so while he may see that because he is aggrieved and he has this beef he has this few burning coal inside of him Which represents President Obama for many people? This is dangerous and you know the question remains. Will we ever be able to come back out this as political form or actual policy? Now let's talk a little bit about trump's relationship with the other remaining presidents Besides Jimmy Carter Kate. President trump hasn't reached out to any of the other presidents for advice. How unusual is that? Oh it's Unprecedented in modern history. Always you know going back to JFK during the Cuban missile crisis calling every single one of his living predecessors saying we need help. I need advice During this would be a great time and for trump to to to reach out to them but And he's been asked about it and he said he wanted and he you know what will he learn from them? I think he's threatened by them When I left the Oval Office after our interview he said in a voice laden with dark chasm he said they hide President Bush for me. You know he I think he feels like he's been bullied by you. Know and and ostracized by the former presidents. And why would he? Why would he reach out to them? I mean Jimmy Carter. Is Somebody who he had. He's an affinity for he saw harder as an outsider and the way that he was because harder would come out and Criticize like I said Bush in the war in Iraq. I mean he broke some rules. We're not and president. Carter talk about. They talked about China. They talked about North Korea. Carter was still harboring hopes of being sent As an envoy I mean this is a couple of years ago to North Korea But it was typical Jimmy Carter because he was at a friend's house in plains Georgia in this tiny town and he was serving himself dinner at buffet.

Quiet shy average kid didn't think I would Do much in life did make Greg grades and so I had very low expectations for myself and You know took a long time to overcome all that but yeah growing up. I was a kind of a B. Student. Never a straight a student. You know they come thing and I lived by the two words I can't. I can't play baseball. I can't play piano. I can't do this can do that. So you know. Appearance really helped me overcome this two words over the course my life interesting so this this kind of came from internally that the these words wasn't coming from your parents no it was all internal just my own self doubt fear. You know all the all that stuff. So what did you think you were destined to do? I wasn't sure I figured it would be in the arts. Whether it be music or art itself you know I was definitely Into music growing up But I wasn't really sure I was Kinda game. Whatever so while you're from Nashville. So I hope you were handed music. Yeah actually grew up Singing professionally and a little kids group we saying on a Willie Nelson Record and John Denver. And all these famous artists sell is a professionally. Trained vocalists is a child which which is pretty crazy. Wow so wait. So how the heck go from a vocalist to you. Know a world famous photographer. I don't take taking. What was the turning point? You know you realize hey? I'm not going to be a vocalist. I think I'll take some pictures. Yeah we are we are Jimmy around him. And there's obviously a lot a lot in the between those moments and of course all in the book but I had abandoned college with my brothers and when I could tell that they weren't serious about it as I was I decided to turn my attention towards the arts visual arts In so I studied graphic design in college got monitoring illustration and at that point knew that a visual arts is what I wanted to do. So graphic design is actually what I did the longtime before switching to photography because actually one photography class in college and I got a d. and nearly failed and so it wasn't until many years later that I rediscovered photography and fell in love with it. So yeah to get to help me with that you almost. You almost failed photography and sounds like you're quite a good graphic artist. What what was the turning point that you say you know? I'm so bad photography I think I ought to take it up as a career. Yeah well It was photography is one of those required classes in college. I didn't actually want to take it but I had to and I didn't do very well. And so that was noni eight hundred nine and then it wasn't until two thousand one that the first digital camera came about and at that point I already knew the the All the the world of digital editing and new photoshop because as a graphic designer I knew all the digital tools so once a digital camera came into play. The made a lot of love a lot of sense for me to start playing with and so I would actually use a camera to scan in images and textures to use in my design and then living in Nashville all. My friends were musicians and so once they found at a camera then they would ask me to start shooting them and then I turned out to be good at it and then their labels would start hiring in the rest kind of took off from there. I was discovered by agent Hollywood. And then she put me on a roster and the next thing I knew I was shooting Big Celebrities in Hollywood and around the country. That's fascinating we. That was actually what my question is going to be. Because my guess was that you were going to take pictures to work in graphic arts and one thing led to another so I I should have said that I because then I'd look really smart but oh yeah that's that's fascinating were there. Were there people along the way who when this started happening guided you in this direction? Whether we're there are people who really made a difference in your life Going this direction. Yeah of course I mean obviously my. My parents had a massive impact. I talk a lot about that in the book but the NFL guy who is kind of a man not even mentor. He was the hero somebody idolize and looked up looked up and I get to meet him at one point and we became friends and he's the one that said you should buy this new thing called a digital camera which that changed my life and he was also the one to say you should quit. You're adding see job and start your own company. And he told me that at the age of twenty four. I'm now forty two and I've worked for myself ever since that day. He said You should quit your job tomorrow and I did quit my job tomorrow and again. That was eighteen years ago and I've never never looked back. What what I mean is quitting your job at twenty four and doing something and the you almost flunked out of college. I mean take take. Our listeners viewers what what goes through your mind. Well how do you do that because a lot of folks are in that position? How the heck do you do that? Yeah I think often times you know when where most afraid to do something that might mean. Were most meant to do that thing. You know you hear a lot of actors in Hollywood. Say They choose to do this film because they were terrified of it And I'm often drawn to the things that I'm really scared of drawn to jumping into that dark place a dark place of fear and just kind of not knowing what's going to happen but Being excited and and I I liked the idea of risk like the even as a kid. I loved walking into one hundred house and back in the eighties. They were actually really scary. People could actually grab you and you know These these days there'd be lawsuits involved. I remember in the eighties. I just loved like walk into these hundred houses Gazebo as a businessman. Now that's what it feels like. When you're starting something new in your world people are starting a new way of eating new lifestyle like it. All can be very very daunting and scary to try something new. But I've found over and over again that I'm just really drawn to that moment to that feeling and You know the worst that can happen as you can fail. And I found that even through failure. You're still learning. L. Ton and so it's really not failure. So have you know you you credit? Your parents like you mentioned with a lot of this. Where are they? The sounds like they're the real backbones that are are there to give you the confidence to leap out into the into the void. Yeah Picture and how what did they think when you quit your job at twenty four They were you know worried for the obvious reasons. You know worried about may sure that's get addicts. I had you know health benefits and all the things insurance all they get stuff but I was you know I was pretty pretty hard. Headed in new are needed to do it now. It was kind of drowning in the corporate world. I it didn't inspire me and MOTIVA- man. I knew that I enjoyed working with my friends a lot more so I knew that it was time to jump. You know we. We've We we've had other people on the podcast that tell a similar story that the corporate world they were drowning or strangling and they you know they made similar leaps and it's fascinating know where. Where do you get? Where do you get the courage to do this and you? It sounds like you're kind of born just to take leaps scary things. Maybe it's definitely Stephanie. Still scary like right now. I'm sure we'll get there in a minute. But I'm pursuing a new career new journey that is more terrifying than anything I've ever done and it's not like you overcome fear it's not like I. I finally defeated fear because fear is still there every single day fear and insecurities but I just know that those things are part of the journey. He no they're nine. Am tomorrow going to get back to work. They're all going to be there again But it's as being professional then knowing knowing you're still gonNA be battling those invoices so they're your career as a photographer where there were. They're fearful when you we're going to take a picture of star who was intimidating or President Obama or the Pope How how do you get ready to photograph somebody like that? Yeah it's It's wild for sure. I've had some wild encounters than I do get star struck at do get nervous but also have to remember that they're just another human being like myself and they also have their fears and insecurities and I just have to treat them like your which read anybody you know. I think that's the most important thing is treat the janitor in my building the same Zoa tree now President Obama whoever I was photographing at the time and I'm very laid back Mike countenance renown. This interview is the same as it is on a big photo. Shoot you now so Taking pictures is not Changing lives it's saving lives. It's it should be fun. A lot of people take away too seriously semi approaches atop some fun. Let's make some call them and see what happens so your so I take it. You're not kind of like Austin powers with his camera. Going work at work at you know some them. I kind of have to play that role for sure. I've done. Some fashion shoots and the client wants me to be a lot more talkative and encourage the model more so I've had to.

"Uh so that you know we we write a couple of hundred jokes and whittle it down to about thirty of course the biggest reason it seemed easy is that president obama has a really good timing as a comedian and this was not the hardest thing you know this was not the toughest room he was going to face this was not the hardest part of his job or even usually of like that weekend so he was at a little bit of an unfair advantage and i think the reason it's a tough room for comedians e there's really two reasons one is it's a very strange room i mean it you've got a sort of professional democrats professional republicans a lot of journalists and what journalists find funny can be a little bit of a tough nut to crack and then you have a lot of hollywood celebrities and that's a very strange audience and knowing he wanted to have you want the aegean you want to push it but knowing exactly where to push it is a people don't always get that balance right and the other thing i would say is we were used to writing speeches where you don't get a chance at a dress rehearsal and most performers get to workshop something in a room they get to do it in front of an audience and so we knew sort of okay when we're riding something we're writing it assuming that the first time it's delivered is the only time it's delivered and that's when the stakes are highest so it made it a little bit easier for us to to guess which jokes were worth putting in in which ones were taking out and the other thing i will say is you know president obama's the tupac to follow i think with a different resident stephen colbert for example to quite well and has arman i did an amazing job at this year's correspondent's dinner when oprah's vault.
