"My manager. They called my manager and they're like, hey, she was really good one to see her again. And I was like, what? And I'm like, I don't want to do this. She's like, Quinta, go do it. I go the next day. Still pissed. But I learned the lines. He's like, he's like, you he tells me who rob Thomas is, 'cause I don't really know who rob Thomas is like that. He's like, these are still, it's good for you to do these things. So they cast me, and I was like, what the fuck? What? And then, you know, in comes they're shooting in Vancouver for a month. And I'm like, what the hell? I'm in a room. I just got into a study relationship in my life for the first time. And then I don't like to who's now my husband. And I'm like, what? I have to go to Vancouver for a month. And he's like, yeah, and if it gets picked up, you'll have to be there. 6 to 9 months of your life. I'm like, everything that's being told to me is a happy thing, was the worst information. Oh my God, I still remember Peter Roth, who's no longer at Warner Brothers, but coming out and hugging me like, you got it. And I'm like, who are you and this is the worst thing? And then it basically happened again, right? I guess. Yeah. The violet didn't go. And then, but through that interaction, I really, this is why it's important to sometimes just try things. Justin and pat became super important to me. I was like, these dudes like hear me out, the role of the cast and me for it was originally for like a redheaded white girl. And I had it. And I worked with them a little bit to, you know, change some lines. It wasn't me writing at all, but you know, they didn't have anybody else to say, hey, this girl would say Anderson pack instead of arcade fire. Stuff like that. And then I had built this really positive relationship with Warner Brothers too after the pilot didn't go. Wipe my hands of it. Warner Brothers called me back to their building. And it's a meeting and this big board room and all these people, they're like, hey, we want to keep working with you. That pilot didn't go, but we want to work with you in whatever capacity we can if you want to make a show blah blah blah. I'm like, all right, I'm cool. So at the beginning of a really positive relationship with Warner Brothers. So then after that, what happened? All my timeline isn't too long. Well, I mean, somewhere in there is Quinta versus everything, right? The Facebook for Facebook watch. Welcome to university versus everything was while I was at BuzzFeed. Oh, but I guess did it maybe go on Facebook watch after you had left BuzzFeed? Yes, yeah, I'd already loved it. And sold that through BuzzFeed two things. Well, so Quinta and Jermaine is this other pilot, right? This is for CBS. Great. So that was for CBS now. That one was one, so right after the pilot that didn't even come into the world, I went to I met with Larry wilmore. And I was friends with Jermaine Fowler and we decided to do this show, Quinton, Jermaine. And that was really also that was game changing for me because I pulled away from WB a little bit, not for any bad reason, but Jermaine brought this to me. Larry wilmore was in the mix. You know, it's just like, oh, I'll do this with them over there. Larry was at ABC at the time. And I worked with them on that pilot we sold it to CBS, which was really cool. I got to see what the process of selling a show really looks like. And I say this all the time, I would not have been able to make Abbott unless I had that experience with Larry. Larry was my crash course and television writing. Because up until then, I had never really, yeah, it took comedy writing classes. I took I read books about TV, but Larry is just a savant of television. And learning how to write for CBS, how to take notes, how to defend what you need to defend in your work, and how to even not have the show get picked up with grace. I learned all of that from wary. I learned why act breaks on multi cam should be different than an act break on a single cam and in why things need to happen in scenes as opposed to streaming where sometimes there are these long scenes where nothing happened so they can get away with. So it was just without their experience with Larry. I don't even know. I don't know. That really solidified that I wanted to make a network sitcom because that was me actually seeing the art in it. You know what I'm saying? Well, I do want to come back to an aspect of what happened with Quinta and Jermaine. Again, doesn't ultimately get ordered to series, but still you've said valuable learning thing for a number of reasons, but I wonder if one of them was just kind of learning about the challenges of dealing with people and places where they've been sort of in the habit of doing the same or similar things for a long time because I want to read back to you a quote this is from an interview shortly after Quinta and Jermaine didn't go. This is you talking to Rolling Stone about, I believe. So you say, quote, I get along with these executives, but it's not about that. They're still racist. It's the comfortable racism that comes from being at a company like CBS for so long that only leads to shows that are like the neighborhood that are confronting race relations more than they're about black people. Strong words. Well, that's right. I mean, it sounds like though that your point, though, it seems that and I think part of what makes abbot elementary kind of makes it unique or very rare is that, yeah, there's a lot of black people front and center, but it's not about that. Yeah. It's about a school. It's about teachers at a school, trying to roll the ball up the hill. And that's just the makeup of that world. You know, that was something while Larry and Jermaine and I were working at CBS. That was something we had to constantly go up against with that pilot. And I was like, I don't want to do this. Like I don't want to have these conversations about their black let's explain why they're black. Because they are like, well, even stuff you said, hey, you want a character to be that takes the bus. Yeah. Right? Yeah. Because that character in that world would just take the bus. But that wasn't quite the CVS. It's not what CBS had in mind for this show. And I was like, there were certain things where they wanted to, by the way, I want to say again, there were some executives at CBS that completely respect for real. They're great. Really dependent worth being one of them. Great executive that helped me really learn how to, you know, work with executives. But for the network, we were trying to fit this show that wasn't a CBS show into a CBS pack. And that was really learned a lot through that. I was like, you know what? Next time I sell a show somewhere, I'm going to make sure that's where it's supposed to fit. If it's not supposed to be there, I'm not going to try to fit it in there. I want to make it for us and platform. And I think that Quentin's remain was never a CBS show and we were trying to make it one. And that was really painful for me. So much so that when I sold my next show, I had a show I did after that after Larry and Jermaine didn't go. And I did it with a producer named Michelle Nader to producers. Michelle Nader and Danielle stood start next. But they're wonderful. And they wanted to, I worked with them and sold the show to HBO Max. But here's the kicker, we pitched that show to ABC, and that's where I met Erin wernberg, who became the executive that is now the lead development executive on average. Interesting. So it all kind of comes

"Everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 454th episode of awards chatter. The Hollywood Reporter's awards podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg. And my guest today is a comedic phenom, who is blowing up at the moment, having created and served as a producer and writer and the principal star of the ABC sitcom Abbott elementary, which has been described by The New York Times as quote the best new network sitcom of the season close quote and quote the kind of comedy that network TV needs. With the guardians suggesting quote, it has Parks and Recreation sense of community, modern families, precision tooling, and Ted Lasso's charm. But as its own hilarious thing. The first season of the show about the struggles of teachers in a Philadelphia public school rolled out between December 2021 and April 2022, and quickly proved to be something special. It's second episode was ABC's highest rated installment of comedy since the finale of Modern Family a couple of years earlier. Ratings for the premiere were quadrupled after about a month, something that had never before happened with an ABC comedy. Season one overall averaged about 4 million viewers per episode, the show was renewed for a second season, a month before the first season's finale, and the first season ended up with a 100% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Oh, and earlier this month, the show received 7 Emmy nominations as well, including best comedy series, making it this year's only network show nominated for the top drama or comedy awards. And my guess is personally nominated in three categories, producing, writing, and acting, which is a total never before achieved in a single year by a black person. I'm talking about one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people of 2022, Quinta Brunson. Over the course of our conversation, the 32 year old and I discussed what led her to comedy and to create web content, including what proved to be the first viral Instagram video. What it was like subsequently working on projects like the first season of HBO's a black lady sketch show. While quietly trying to sell a show of her own, how her mother, Norma Jean Brunson, and her 6th grade teacher, Joyce Abbott, helped to inspire abbot elementary and why she wanted the show to air on and deeply believes in the future of network television, plus much more, and so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Hi, what's up? Thank you so much for joining us. And great to have you on the podcast. Normally I begin with a question I'm going to come to in a second about just where our guests were born and raised with their parents did for a living. But first, I need you to help me understand. I always thought that QU I NTA was Quinta is, so are we all saying it wrong? Or what's going on? No. Quinta is another pronunciation of my name. Someone say that is the correct pronunciation. I've kind of grown up my whole life being called both Quentin and Quinta. Okay. I am the 5th child Quinta means with and it's actually something I had to land on when I became more of a professional in my field when deciding which one I wanted to go by. And I decided to go by Quinta, but what's hard about it is I don't always pick up when someone is calling me. Quinta, because I'm so used to it. Right. Right. So it's funny you bring this up. I was on a red carpet the other day, and the one woman said, Quinta, you know, who was taking pictures in the rest of the people. We're like, Quinta Quinta, everybody's confused. And I didn't even catch it. My peel, so I'm upset. And I was like, wow, I didn't even hear it. I'm just so used to hearing both versions. So yeah. All right, well, thank you for clarity. Now I can sleep well at night. So all right, now for the usual question, just can you share for anyone who may not know where were you born and raised in what did your folks do for a living? I was born in west Philadelphia, born and raised in west Philadelphia, trying not to sing the theme song. Me too, me too. I'm proud of both of us. And my mother was a teacher. And my father was, he managed parking lots. For a living. It seems so mundane, but I found it to be very cool. Sure. No, I've always thought that's the American Dream. One time payment and then let it just keep collecting. Exactly. Now, your mom, it was always kindergarten that she taught her did that change over the years. She talked kindergarten for most of her career. She had switched to first grade. I remember one year. And she wanted to go back to kindergarten. Okay. And that was good because you were when you were in kindergarten that worked out nicely, right? It did. She was my teacher, yeah. Yeah. So in your memoir, she means well. And I will just repeat that for anyone listening at home that is. You talk about the fact that your family that when you were growing up was quite observant, Jehovah's Witnesses. And how that may have shaped you and I wonder if you can maybe give a little version of that now just how you think it might have affected you as a kid. I think for growing up Jones witness, it just, for me, as a kid in west Philadelphia, I think it gave me some type of religion gives a lot of people, but it gave me some guidelines, you know? It helped keep me safe in Philadelphia and keep me out of trouble. Joe's business is a very strict, it's a very strict religion. I wasn't allowed to do so much that when I did become passionate about something, it was often something that I that was in wine was kind of my principles at the time, like I felt like, oh, this feels like it's part of my purpose. If I really want to do it because I had all these rules and guidelines and fears of God, but then there were some things that I was like, ah, I absolutely got to do this. I think this is in line with what I'm wearing. I felt that way about comedy. You were talking to him any other jobs when it says and they would not say the same thing, but I felt that I had kind of a purpose in that arena that aligned with my religious beliefs at the time. So to connect the dots, I guess, to comedy, I guess there's first dance, and then dance somehow leads to acting, which somehow leads to comedy. Yeah. Connect those dots if you don't mind. Well, how many was always there? That's another thing my family, we spent so much time together, and we watched so much, we watched a lot of comedies, things that were the whole family could enjoy. Like a big one in our House was all of the Nick at night TV shows, all of the shows that became Nick and night TV shows in my era. So the Brady bunch, Mary Tyler Moore show, Bob Newhart show, they all became really important to me, those sitcoms, they represented togetherness, things I could watch with my family, things I was allowed to watch. And for that reason, you know, I really loved comedy more than I was willing to admit. I think, and as I got a little bit older, I started to find kind of my own things I loved all that was really big to me. I just thought it was fascinating. These kids, you know, doing sketch comedy was so incredible to me and my older siblings kind of sharing comedies with them because it's what we also had in common. Ace Ventura pet detective made my brother and I Friends. I think without that, I'm not sure we would have gotten a lot. And so, you

"Over, did they still have their home? They did. They were very fortunate because most Japanese could not own property by law. But my grandfather, I think he bought his home. And his children's name and they were American born and therefore U.S. citizens. So I think the deed was in their name and then maybe when they turned 18 that they could pass it over to him. And the house had been paid for it. So they actually had unlike most families, they had a home to return to. I mean, there was a housing shortage after the war. So many Japanese Americans who returned from the camps just had no place to live, so they would live in hostiles or there were these makeshift trailer camps. It was just it was very, very difficult, but they had their home. But it had just been completely trashed. Many things have been stripped. From that house. But it was theirs. So I want you to read another paragraph from your book. And this is about wondering what caused the dementia. Was it something in the environment, something we did? And this is also written in the style that you have become known for, which is an accumulation of details that paint a larger picture. And are very, just kind of revealing in their specificity. So if you could read this paragraph for us what was it you wonder that first made her begin to forget. Was it the chemical and the hair dye that once turned her scalp bright red for two weeks? Was it something toxic in the hairspray aqua net that she used to and sometimes three times a day for more than 30 years, hold your breath, she'd say, as she pressed down on the nozzle and disappeared beneath the cloud of coal white mist. Was it the raid that she sprayed all over the kitchen counter the minute she saw an ant. Was it sporadic, genetic, a series of mini strokes, something in the drinking water, the aluminum laden antiperspirant. Too little sleep, she had been complaining about your father's snoring ever since the day they got married. Too much TV, a dearth of hobbies, hobbies, she once said to you, who has time for hobbies. Should she have eaten more blueberries, less butter, red more books, red even one book, you don't remember ever seeing her read a single book, although there was always piled high on her nightstand beside the mountain of stray socks, a stack of books she meant to read. I'm okay. You're okay. How to talk to your teenager, teach yourself French and one week. Was it the hormone replacement after menopause? The estradiol, the prayer of the high blood pressure, the medication for the high blood pressure, her undiagnosed thyroid condition. The deep and lingering depression she fell into the year after her mother died three days shy of 101. Now, what am I supposed to do? She said, was it you? Thanks for reading that. That's Julio tsuku reading from her new novel, the swimmers. Julia ochuka, thank you so much. It's been a pleasure talking with you. Thank you so much, Terry. It's been wonderful speaking with you.

"Wait wait, don't tell me podcast feed. The new hit sitcom, Abbott elementary, about the teachers and a majority black under resourced elementary school, was created by my guest Quinta Brunson, who also stars on the show. Before getting her own show, she was known for her viral short videos and series on the Internet, like the girl who's never been on a nice date. She was a producer and actor for BuzzFeed video and was a cast member on the first season of a black lady sketch show. In abbot elementary, she plays a second grade teacher in a Philadelphia school. She's pretty new at the job, and has remained fired up by idealism, but is still pretty naive. The series is a mockumentary. In this scene, from episode one, she is in front of the camera describing herself. What she says is interspersed with a scene from her classroom. She's given her students to the count of three to do what she's told them to do. She's already up to 8 when this scene begins. I'm Janine teagues, I've been teaching second grade here at ebit elementary for a year now. 8. 9. As a product of the Philadelphia school system, I'm proud to say I survived and now teach here today. All right guys, so there have been three presidents since this one, okay? It's an old book. So here's where I taped in the others. I'd say the main problem in the school district is, yeah, no money. The city says there isn't any, but they're doing a multi-million dollar renovation to the eagle stadium down the street from here. But we just make do. I mean, the staff here is incredible. They're all amazing teachers. I really look up to them all. Well, I look up to the older ones. We younger teachers are still getting a hang of it. If we don't end up leaving. Look, I know this school is rough, but I became a teacher to make sure students come out alive. And after learning a lot in my first year, I finally feel is happening. Jamal, what are you doing? I had to go in the toilet start work. The rug was plan B. Yeah, that scene ends with Jamal peeing on the rug in the classroom because the toilets are broken. And the chaos we heard in the middle of that scene when she was talking about the young teachers having a hard time, what we saw, which you can't see on the radio is one teacher using an extinguisher to put out a fire in a trash can, another teacher ducking from things being thrown around the room by students, including a globe, and another teacher who's given up and walked out, carrying her things in a box while giving the school the finger. Quinta Brunson, welcome to fresh air. I love this series. Thank you for making it. Thank you so much for having me. It's so cool to hear you like described the scenes that are happening. It makes it funnier to me. You describing what's happening in the show. It's so crazy. So why did you want to do a series about a new teacher in an elementary school? I wanted to do a series about public schools because I was visiting my mother one day. She is a now retired teacher, but at the time she was and it was the year before she retired. I went to go visit her while she had a parent teacher night that she had to be at for school and I was in my mother's kindergarten class. I was a student at the school where she taught for 5 years after that. But I just got to look at it in this different light. I got to see this woman who would love this job for so many years. So much so that she didn't even want to give it up. Still love it this much, despite it getting harder despite teachers not having all the support they need, despite kids growing even more unruly than they've been in recent time. She still loved the job so much so that her and I got into a little argument about her needing to retire soon. And I just thought that that was the beauty right there. That was the message, the comedy was filling itself out. But the beauty is someone being so resilient for a job that is so underpaid and so underappreciated because it makes them feel fulfilled and they're doing their purpose here. So your mother was your teacher and kindergarten? She was? Yep. I was only four. I started school early at four or 5. And to me, it was just my norm. You know, I went to school. With my mom, you know, she made me breakfast in the morning at home. And then we went to school. And I called her mom. I think she didn't require me to call her miss Brunson. I did call her mom. But she treated me exactly equal to the rest of the kids, which is one thing I remember from that time. And it just felt like a continuing of the nourishment and nurture I got at home. One of my favorite characters on the show is a middle aged, very experienced black teacher who's so easily gets the students to listen to her and she's more cynical than your character, not about the children or about teaching, but about. The ability to get resources. But I love those teachers, those teachers who just have that kind of magic touch and the kids respect her and listen to her and we'll do what she says. And while chaos is my be happening all around, her students will not be in chaos. How do they do it? I've always wondered, how do they do it? I don't know, you know, my mother has that ability. And that character Barbara Howard is loosely based on my mother. It's something I've watched her do for years and continue to do to just get a room of children to act right with nothing more than a look. I just think it's a gift. You know, one interesting thing about it is I think my mother has just as much respect for her students as they do for her. And I think that relationship creates a bond. And I think that's very important. It's an important part of that power. You started as a comic. And I know that you're very short. I should say I'm very short, too. Do you want to compare height? Yellow let's do it. I didn't know you were short. Oh yeah, yeah, I'm short. You couldn't tell by my voice. No, no. Or your pictures. Yeah. So I'm like, I don't know 11 give where the same height. Take maybe. Okay, right. So when I'm in front of a microphone, I have to stand on something. Like if there's a podium in front of me, I need something to raise me so that you see more than a forehead sticking up. When you started and stand up, will you self conscious about being short that people wouldn't be able to see you over other people's heads or that you wouldn't have enough command on stage because you weren't physically overbearing? You know what? No. For most of my life, I did not feel self conscious about being short. If anything I looked at it as like a superpower, it was something very interesting about me. And people thought I was cute, and funny, and when I started doing stand up, it was just another thing to be funny about. I still think I've become more aware of it recently. Recently, I'm like, man, I am not giving grown woman to people. They think. I'm like, I kind of would like to give full grown adult, but it's not giving that and no think I'm in this space of, you know, producers, showrunner..

"Saw. For example. That john kennedy. I'm senator from Louisiana has said that he might be willing to vote for a bill that has a debt limit increase in it if it also has spending truly needed in his in his state so that's one possibility. a sort of variant of that possibility is that you get enough. Republicans to vote to cut off debate on the bill but then they vote no on final passage and this is like a of cute by half strategy you here. I'm thrown around. Sometimes that would be an option. Another option for democrats to sort of Take a series of procedural steps on which they might or might not get help from republicans that would allow them to put on an increase to the debt limit into the big reconciliation belt that they're working on one of the biggest challenges with that strategy. Is that that would mean that. The reconciliation bill needs to be done in roughly the next month Before we get to the point where the debt limit really needs to be addressed. So there's a lot of sort of moving parts here. I remain generally optimistic that we will not default on the debt. But getting from here to there. I'm does have to be pretty complicated. But if you could get joe manchin and bernie sanders to agree on everything. The problem would go away right. So if if you get joe mansion and bernie sanders and all of the parts of the house democratic caucus right. I was getting the house democrats yet. In the germany enter. The remains lot disagreement among democrats on sort of what should be in that bill. How big it should be Although surfing so but yes. I remain skeptical. That all of those disagreements will be worked out in time for that bill to be a realistic vehicle for a delta increase. So i think they're more likely to find a different way to get out of the debt limit part so if you had to assign a probability to each of the disaster scenario is coming to fruition and are actually either dealing with a shutdown train wreck or a debt limit train wreck. How would you assign probabilities on news. Yes i really do. I really do think the possibility of default on the debt is quite low. I i. I'm not gonna take the bait and give you a specific number but i think that is quite low. I think that the possible government shutdown is a little bit higher. But still i think not especially likely when we think about serve resent instances where we have either had shut down or have had a gotten very close to having a shutdown within hours. They've been really to very specific question like spending questions that people don't want to back down from so obviously the wall in late two thousand eighteen is probably the best. I'm recent example of this. And so i think a shutdown more likely than actually defaulting on the debt. But i i do think that the more likely outcome is that they figure out a way out just what that is and how we get. There is not going to be smooth from here. All right one last area that i want to cover is the recent spate of oversight hearings. Anthony blinken the march embattled secretary of state found himself last week in front of I think congressional committees both on the afghanistan withdrawal. This seems to me to raise a interesting question for democrats who are running these committees which is how much time are they going to spend on afghanistan which is after all an area of probable at least partial embarrassment to the biden administration. So i'm curious molly for your thoughts as this. Should we understand these hearings as a kind of pro forma exercise that the democrats went through. Because you can't not when you know people are grabbing wheel wells of planes. You can't not do anything on it but They're not gonna let themselves get diverted from january sixth and the matters that they wanna be talking about to protracted set of hearings on afghanistan particularly on the mode of withdrawal from afghanistan rather than the fact of it which is something that the biden administration continues to be proud of or conversely. Is this something that we should expect. A sustained period of oversight on Even to the extent that it poses some political risks for the party in power yet took a question. And certainly when we look at the history of congressional oversight we expect that when one or both chambers or controlled by the same party that controls the white house they will do less vigorous oversight of a same party president. I do think however that this particular issue we may see democrats continue to do. I'm a fair amount of oversight on it. You know you saw in as the kind of most acute period of the withdrawal was unfolding on. You saw a lot of criticism from congressional democrats of a number of different kinds about what the mode of the of the withdrawal and you again have have since been seen. I'm some hearings starts in congress. I think it's important to remember that. You know singers. Like bob menendez. Who's the the senate foreign relations committee has not always had an especially smooth relationship with out of the biden foreign policy team on other foreign policy issues which may contribute to his willingness to you. Know push back against Some of the the administration has done. So i do think this has the potential to be an exception to some of their prevailing trends that we have seen in oversight. But it's hard to know had of how long it might last one of the things that i found really interesting about the hearings that have been held on ghanistan..

"That's all the more true just because again. I think it's really worth driving home. Just how massive expanse of the records request to nahra was and you know. If i were the committee i would want to have staff working with our to get those records to them just because there's so much to sort through. It's kind of impossible for me to see how nar would be able to do it on. Its own that said. I do think i should've mentioned earlier. That bennie thompson said in one interview. Also politico that. The committee was hoping to see the end of its investigation in early spring of this coming year. So that's the spring of twenty twenty two. If that's their goal. I will just say that. I hope they're hiring a lot of stuff like a lot of staff because they're going to have a huge amount to work through in a very short amount of time. Yeah just one other thing to sort of underscore that possible time line for completing the work is that it's not obviously just that there's a huge volume of information that's requested it's that there are a lot of potential controversies about getting that information and quinn dimension of this earlier in terms of potential privileged claims from the trump administration. But there are real questions about sort of what the biden administration's position on some of these requests is going to be because of concerns about setting precedent for the future around how easy it should be pre-congress congress to access information from the executive branch. You know i. I am of the mind that we have gotten to a point where executive branch has too much ability to stonewall congress in its pursuit of information to do oversight but there are hard questions. And it's not it's not automatically the case that everything. The congress is seeking in. This investigation is going to come to it easily. And that's not just because of what. President trump and other former trump administration officials might do before we move on to other subjects. I want to ask one more staffing question. It is also the case. I believe that. The committee has brought on former republican congressman. Denver riggleman in some capacity as consultant. Or as a i. I'm not sure what his formal status is seems to me between that and the woods higher bringing on a republican staff counsel senior counsel. They really are trying to make at least at the staff level. Something of a display of bipartisanship. I'm curious a whichever review wants to take this. Whether that's flying the combination of the two republicans whom nancy pelosi appointed to the committee itself including the vice chair and the staff or whether this is kind of performance of bipartisanship that is actually masking a holy democratic operation. So i guess. I'd say two things one is that there is reporting on a kind of a burgeoning really positive relationship between bunny thompson. And liz cheney who is the the vice chair of committee and you know maybe that's reporting that kind of meant to get all of us to continue to talk about this. As as an a bipartisan effort because there are republicans on the panel even though they had to be put thereby Nancy pelosi and the other thing. I'd say is that i think the value of trying to have some bipartisanship both by having to republicans appointed by policy and that having some republicans staff is. There's like there's a genuine but narrow audience for that that bipartisanship and it's not by and large the rest of the house republican conference but it is i think important. That's my impression as well. I mean i'll point to the same politico piece that molly did. There's lots of quotes from committee members including one that i thought was really telling from representative jamie raskin. A democrat saying of the january six committee quote. This is hurley. How legislative committee should operate. We don't engage in constant partisan crossfire and polemical attacks on one another and then he went on to say that the collegiality quote does give you a glimpse of what we could if we didn't have one wheel stuck in the mud so There's definitely seems to be a sense. That sort of the agreement among members of an staffers of the on the committee that what they're doing is really important something that doesn't have to do with partisanship seems at least from the reporting. That's out there to be working. I should note before we go on to discuss other topics. While we're talking about stopping matters. It is worth flagging when minor staffing controversy. That seems to have kind of vanished. The early on the committee hired david buckley Who was the inspector general of cia previously as a senior staff member and basically immediately after that hiring civil liberties groups transparency groups some journalists started. Sort of saying whoa. What are you doing there. Because there are complaints against buckley during his time as i g for whistleblower retaliation in that office and there was briefly as kind of a little bit of a press furor over at a lot of articles. A lot of folks saying that buckley should step down that the commission of hired him. I haven't seen anything new about that recently So it seems like it. It may have spluttered out but i do think that it's it's worth flagging since we are talking about how well the committee has done staffing up indeed so by the time the committee holds its first hearing if current trajectory or a second hearing. If the current trajectory keeps up the united states will have defaulted on the federal debt and the government will be shut down. So we're not quite there yet. I actually don't know when it was be dramatic molly to set off. I know but by my whole job. Here is to to keep to keep the java check inject the drama where appropriate fair enough so let me formulate what was going to be the introduction to the question as question cal far. We both temporarily and in terms of likelihood of happening from disaster. And what sort of action would by whom would be necessary to avert said disasters shore so again it is. September twenty first and there are two looming deadlines for congress where there are big negative consequences. If they don't act. One is the end of the federal fiscal year which is on september thirtieth if congress does not pass what's called a continuing lucian short term. Stopgap spending bill to keep federal programs running up past the start of the new fiscal year. We would see a partial government shutdown on october first the other deadline which is significantly more consequential is when the treasury department exhaust but are called extraordinary measures to keep the us from defaulting on its debt one of the things that is a little tricky about addressing the debt limit. Is that unlike the spending bill. There is not a hard firm deadline where we all know that there is a black and white date at which by which action needs to be taken most people who are trying to project this Have said that sometime sort of mid to late. October told about a month from now is what sometimes we refer.

I'm raise the debt limit without meeting any hope for help from republicans and we are going to try and force you to that.

"Tight end in league. Almost doer die. They have to get to the to keep this drive and the game. You went to detroit as tight end. Well he stayed there for about fifteen minutes before a buffalo offer him a spot on their roster as tight at so then that began really his first extended period of playing that position and initially. It was rough because he really had no formal education at the position. I get thrown away ground. He had to learn how to block which was forty unnatural for someone. We've been playing quarterback for most of his life and even wide receiver bag in high school wide receivers. Don't block it line. Like tight ends. Do so with the help of rod. Boris pretty good tight ends coach. He's a veteran in buffalo and some teammates. Who helped him out. He started figuring out so at this point you know. He was still kind of fringe guy who was learning the position and of a good in a third tight. End fourth tight end on the roster and You know that's kind of how he was seen. I think most people in the nfl so heading into the twenty twenty season. This was a guy in his late twenties who had thirty five career catches to his name and as you said really just a fringe guy in the nfl but it seems like there was one team. That didn't see him that way. So dan can you tell us how he landed on the radar of the washington football team. Well i think he was in the right place at the right time. He found blue believed in him. Started with their tight ends coach pete hater and then also a with their head. Coach ron rivera keyed. Hater has been coaching for something like forty years. And you know he knows what he's looking for. The position key fit all the qualifications of a kind of tight end. That hainer likes to have. I saw flashes of this guy going a million miles an hour playing fast. I saw him get physical on special teams and and that you became the guy that i wanted to get and you know a lot of teams nowadays. They're looking for tight ends. They don't mind if they're not the biggest they don't hold their own in the running game as blockers but hainer wine at a guy who could do both and he found one in logan thomas and you know he was able to help bring out the best in him and i think he was at the right point of his experience level where he was just ready to blossom harassment.

He's he's not an old college quarterback he's an nfl tied-in that's an outstanding also wrote about the moment when logan thomas signed a big contract extension with washington earlier this summer and he and his family having a rather touching celebration. Can you tell us about that. One of his dreams even when he was back at the lakisha in was to sign with washington because he had grown up a washington fan and he lived in the area and just before training camp began talks got serious between agent in washington executives and the day before camp. They started to get into heavy negotiations and start in the morning at nine o'clock at night though over still negotiations going out but they kinda thought it was getting close so logan thomas invited his mother over and some friends and everyone came over there. We're going to celebrate this when it happened. Well his agents. David dunn was also busy that day because he represents aaron rodgers so done had other issues going at so as it turned out. A contract didn't end up getting resolved until two thirty a. m. the two sides have agreed to a three year contract extension. It's worth twenty four million so the first thing they did when they found out the contract. Call the kids who were waiting in another room at five earlier in the interview.

"There's the block of issues that the senate focused on right which you can do in a very bipartisan way. As the senate showed which is the sort of institutional failures of law enforcement and the bad positioning of the capitol police For fast action in a situation like this as well as the failure to call out the national guard and a timely fashion and the delays right. That's one block of issue. Second block of issues are the role Of donald trump his administration political certain political organizations and certain members of congress in the events. Right the the sort of that sort of accountability sat third set of issues is kind of the. You know the intelligence failure. Why didn't we have better window into the activities of these groups than we did. And then maybe a fourth set of questions related to the the second in a deep way is how much of a spontaneous eruption of anger was this and to what extent was there a sort of planned coup kind of situation. And i guess i starting with you quinta interested in both of your sense of what the weight of this committee's work is likely to be on these four baskets of issues or if you think there are others what those are given that their time is limited. How do you think they're likely to spend it. That's a really good question. And i have absolutely no idea i. I will say for the reason that i just indicated. I do wonder and i sort of feel like it might be increasingly likely that they do go after the big question of to. What extent was trump involved here. Part of the reason why i wonder that is because they now have this kind of mandate from the four law enforcement officers who testified. It just makes it easier for them to do it. Politically speaking than for any of the other committees that are investigating for example. The the senate committees. I believe are are still investigating. So that's part of it as well and then also the facts that the justice department has as we said indicated that it's not going to stand in the way of testimony from former trump officials granted. There are a lot of problems that potentially come with that. For example you could imagine you know if you try to get say former white house chief of staff mark meadows to testify and he says well you know trump personally told me that. He's not waving executive privilege. I don't care that. doj says the. I should go ahead. I'm not gonna do it then. You get into the question of you know. Okay how do you want to enforce the subpoena and then you end up with some pretty tough problems on the other hand. If congress is going to have to address those problems sooner or later now might be the the time to do it in this committee as sort of the the opportune moment for sort of flexing the the article one muscle a little bit. That said i would definitely worry if they wanted to. Really focus their fire on these sort of questions of political influence to would accent. The riot was known about her planned in advance. I would certainly worry that we could potentially lose valuable insights about say why the fbi was so blase in the face of such an enormous pile of public evidence that far right movements were planning violence on january six. So it is. i mean it is. Trader is a series of trade offs. As you say an. I'm i'll be interested to see which way the committee goes as you and i have both written quinta i mean. I think the fbi has a lot to answer for here. And i think absolutely would be a shame honestly in my view if that got ignored out of zeal for political accountability. Which i think is laudable and attractive frankly but i hope it would not come at the expense of some institutional accountability for the bureau on on its own intelligence failure. Molly what do you think are we are. We headed like a laser beam for you know the a confrontation over the political accountability side of this. Yeah so i tend to agree with quinta that you can at the very least sort of see. Today's hearing as laying some groundwork for a focus on of who knew what. When did they know it. And who was involved in decision making. And i and that sort of thing and i think quintas point about sort of what is this. Committee's comparative advantage in relation to other congressional committees who are continuing to do oversight of what happened on january six really in one to this one additional thing. This committee has is. It has kind of political capital to actor throw around and does it throw that capital around in pursuit of answer. Some of these big questions. I don't know. I will say that as someone who cares very deeply about the health congress as an institution. Your first bucket of questions. Ben are really important questions about operationalizing. What happened on january sixth and why were the capitol police. Ill equipped to deal with it. Why did the horrific things that happened to the four officers. Who testified today. Why did they happen to them. And some of that is about the interactions and some of that is about as we know from the senate report failures to prepare for something like this. And i'm concerned that this committee is not really gonna dig into a lot of those questions in part because congress is not especially good at asking and answering hard questions about itself was again as quinton. I have written one of the reasons why i personally was so in favor of independent commission because i thought it would be better positioned to really look at the internal workings of congress and answer some of those questions and so i think that's a really important element of this but i i am also concerned that this committee may not take up those questions and it may not take those russians for good reasons in not at is using its more limited bandwidth task. Answer some of the kinds of questions that only it is positioned to do. But i i wouldn't want us to ignore those issues ashfall. Tell me though. I mean another argument that you could make if you were bennie thompson for not focusing on those issues is that the senate seems like it's focused on those and cigarettes would be duplicative. The senate is not well positioned to look at donald trump. And paul gosar and kevin mccarthy chore but we also know from the report that the senate that you senate committees released earlier this year that they did not get full cooperation from officials on the house side in their investigation and they do not get full cooperation on some of the operational questions around things like calling out the national guard from the executive branch and so while dot as again with quinton. I have written while that sent that to committee senate report was an admirable and incredibly important piece of work and anything else if those two senate committees produce. I expect also to be. Well done ask that. I report was. I do think that there are questions. On kind of the operational level in part for institutional reasons about the senate doesn't investigate what the house does and we should have answers to and that will need to inform potential reforms to things like governance of the capitol police. And it's just not clear to me that this committee is going to go down that road again. Perhaps for good reasons because they have limited time and limited bandwidth and are better position to investigate.

"Of this terrorist attack. Because we can't do it saying essentially that you know as a police officer he sort of work on the ground level and he needs congress to step up and sort of take the next step. That really jumped out at me. Because as you're saying molly. I think there's there's a lot of different ways that this investigation could go. And i could absolutely imagine a world in which it focuses on law enforcement investigations or intelligence failures. Or you know the specifics of how the writers got into the capital or something like that rather than sort of elevating their gays and saying to what extent did trump himself and the people around him or republican members of congress who for known also singled out. To what extent did they play a role So i was really struck by how all four of the witnesses really seems to be saying explicitly. We want you to go sort of as far up as it gets essentially but this seems to me to be a a a sort of a planned moment. And i don't mean that in a disparaging way but you know you have the republican who are really working hard to discredit this committee blaming the entire set of events. Nancy pelosi you have this crazy. Event took the justice department this morning and it seems to me. This is benny thompson and the members of this committee. Getting the top cover of the career law enforcement officers saying you should investigate whether your colleagues and donald trump had any role in this right. This is not a this is a very sophisticated move by the leadership of the committee and frankly by the officers testifying to bless the committee in the sight of everybody who is trying to discredit it. Oh i completely agree. I mean that. That's what i was trying to say to be clear. I don't know conversations. They had ahead of time. But i do think absolutely. It is extremely useful for the committee to be able to. Now say look you know. We had the us four american heroes. Tell us that they want us to look into the complicity of the republican party. And see you know what kevin mccarthy said and what trump said. And and that. And i think. It is not a coincidence. That a lot of the hearing was spent kind of building up the four witnesses. As you know like i said as american heroes. They've all served in law enforcement. There is definitely a bit of sort of you. know see democrats can also be in favor of law enforcement. Donell has a military record on funen that he joined the police after nine eleven because he wanted to serve and protect his country and so now that the committee has kind of established. You know these four men who have exactly the kind of background that sort of traditional sense. You would fat as you know the best of america right that. They're working to protect the community. They want us to go. And investigate. And overturn the stones. That kevin mccarthy really doesn't want turned over. I absolutely helps them politically. But it was also striking to me that you know. Benny thompson is looking for that top. Cover as you put it right because you could. You could imagine an investigation. That just doesn't want to go there. But they seem to want to. And i know that adam schiff at least has made noises about being ready to sort of come out blazing with subpoenas so given those things seeing reading them side by side it did strike me that they are setting themselves up for what could be a potentially very aggressive investigation. Somali is that where this is heading. I mean i you know we should spend a little time talking about the republican leadership's response to this committee but it seems to me. If you're bennie thompson and nancy pelosi right. Now you've got i guess. Seven or eight members of your own. You've got liz. Cheney and adam kinser who are clearly going to vote with you on on major procedural questions as as well as seem to agree on all substantive matters and you have the justice department today announcing that it would not be asserting executive privilege with respect to any trump administration officials seems to me. You're in a commanding position to do. Whatever you want Should we expect the committee to be. You know shock and awe fast and aggressive so we are certainly seeing a number of indications that the community could be quite aggressive quite quickly. So you mentioned ben. The reporting out today at about the justice department not locking the participation of Trump era officials in the investigation and also some reporting from after the hearing today about the committee. Perhaps going head to straight to subpoenas and not necessarily doing letters to request cooperation you also. I'm cy thomson sort of intimated that he may be planning to bring the committee back to do another hearing at least one. More hearing during congress's august recess so they're certainly kind of the signals that that might be where this is going. A couple of potential sort of challenges one is that you know hearings are a really important part of any congressional investigation. They can again among other things be really powerful for had craig shared set of facts in sending a public message about what happened but there are other parts of a congressional investigation that have to happen behind the scenes in terms of reviewing documents and in a in an investigation. Like this one. You get into all kinds of questions about what's classified information. Do you have staff with the ability to review that information. I'm that sort of thing and so even if we start to see. I'm very quick public moves. It's important to remember that a lot of the less public work of the committee simply will take longer than you know the august recess or even the next couple of months to do in in a good and serious way. Another sort of potential challenge. Is that so if there had been you know when we when we talked about the independent commission i think both in writing the three of us and perhaps on on a previous podcast. One of things we talked about was the question of how long would it. Independent commission has to do its work. That was one of actually the major sticking points in china To reach a deal on that but it an independent commission could have conceivably taken as much time as it needed if they could have gotten to agreement on that question. This committee however will last until the end of the congress At the end of next calendar year twenty twenty two if democrats lose control of the house in the in the midterms which history tells us is a decent proposition. then the committee goes away you know. The republicans are not to to continue to have a select committee on on january. Six if they control the house so kinda back to my my point earlier but having to make choices about where to focus kind of remembering that there is a deadline looming at the end of twenty twenty two and you. How much information can you uncover and get out there. Between now and then is i think also could be constraint here yes so that brings me to a really i think interesting question which is what should the committee be focusing on here so let me just break it up into categories of issues and see what you all think on the one hand..

Iowa Summer Camp Sends Campers Home Early

"Camp in New Hampshire abruptly shuts down and sends the kids home. WBC's art Cohen reports after just six days, parents whose Children were at Camp Quinta Barge in molten borrow New Hampshire were told to come and pick up their kids. Camp, officials said Delays in food shipments made it impossible to keep the camp open. But some parents told the Boston Globe that there were other problems, including hiring counselors just days before camp opened, who had little training. And some of the campers said meals were served multiple times on dirty dishes. Executive director Erik Karlsson blamed the problems on staffing and supply chain issues.

"But i do think. There is an element of being very double edged sword. Where you almost get so desensitized to that. You don't recognize the fact that people are still making changes to their body or people are still going through major surgeries to achieve a certain. Look because you're so desensitized to the fact that it is something major that you're doing no it isn't interesting discussion to have. Oh i mean in general. I think like this has nothing to do with age or transparency. This is just in general. The idea of classic surgery is not met with the same concern for safety as a regular operation was people. See it a so desirable right to like that. Is i think one of the biggest issues. I mean you see the doctor Do grows talking so much publicly right now. About how like. Bbl's are one of the most dangerous procedures you can get and not that you shouldn't get one if you want one. I don't think that it's just some walk in the park. And that i think no matter how you feel about plastic surgery whether you're for it against it. You still have to acknowledge this. Your body undergoing major surgery and undergoing most likely a form of anesthesia. that could have complications. And that needs to be treated with the same level sensitivity as medically necessary procedures. Oh i so agree so yeah anyway. So as we all know khloe up getting her period. She's not pregnant. She's upset but i think also you know. She says the universal gifts you and it's meant to be in god has a plan and a lot of hands on you. Hear people say that it's bullshit but something about this family. That is so true is they really are religious. In that way in terms of their consistency with like the power of prayer has been something that i mean. They spoke about since the very early days. And i remember specifically when lamar was in the coma and they were asking for prayers. I remember watching it. Forget what show it was one of the commentators said you know. I think it actually was van jones. Honestly it said this is a family. That doesn't just preach the power of prayer. They genuinely genuinely believe in it. And so when chloe says something like that. I believe that she meant it. Oh totally and interesting. About chloe saying that is the understanding of the pregnancy journey. In retrospect i sang like. It'll happen when it's meant to happen and thank god. That had happened that way where she ended up having kind of a difficult time getting pregnant. And then you know took it into her own hands to purposely not get pregnant because of how relationship was with lamar totally totally. It's crazy how life works way. Yeah definitely so anyway. The the final funny moment just from this episode is when courtney's telling chris how in her including lynch together they would just cheer each other on if they hurt each other having sex and that sounds a little bit reminiscent of us. Beautiful ending did it not. It did a little bit. Yeah okay well that is all we love you guys so much that i will see you tomorrow for bravo nile see by day for the regular episode..

Bitcoin Bull Market May End, Says MRB Partners

"Boutique. Investment research firm rb partners released a report last week. Titled has the crypto fever. Broken the point to a couple of potential reasons first the fut- they know to main dimensions to this environmental concerns and regulatory risks. These are things we've discussed extensively on this show. Environmental concerns have been particularly acute and in the media. I since tesla made their big bitcoin. By and second since ilan walked it back because of environmental reasons regulatory risks fuel frankly more like a forward projection as we'll get into in a moment but the second reason they gave for a potential downturn is a reduction in monetary stimulus. They wrote quote easy. Money has helped fuel the crypto bubble and a slow unwinding of this trend. Globally will become a headwind for the speculative digital asset. Will clemente in palms newsletter. Adds some technical mv to this as well. He writes zooming out. You get this divergence between short and long-term holders based on historic behavior of these cohorts we are either headed into a full-fledged bear market or in a mini bear market similar to the consolidation between the two double pumps but still in a broader bull market at that time there was a similar phenomenon of long-term holders stepping in and doing the heavy lifting while short term holders panicked sold based on metrics looking at the broader cycle. I tend to side more with the ladder. I could be wrong. Interestingly to me this is not just analysis or speculation that we're seeing as well. There's actually some amount of preparation quintas growth story this week called. Dow's prepare for the next crypto winter with treasury diversification. It's basically about how many decentralized autonomous organizations many of whom are funded by. Governance tokens are selling. Some of those governments tokens now to move into fiat denominated stable coins. That could help them weather downturn. Now i remember twenty eighteen really well and frankly teams that manage treasury. Well were often not only able to survive but put themselves in a hugely powerful position relative to their peers. Those that didn't and just hope that their tokens would return to their previous highs tended to perish so i don't think it's silly for these dow's to be starting think in those terms regardless of where we actually are in the cycle.

U.S. sees record surge in coronavirus cases

U.S. sees record surge in coronavirus cases

"Today. We have had what is the largest number of new cove infections in this country on any single day? Since the pandemic hit, we just hit a new record. This is the screaming headline right now the Washington Post America hits highest daily number of coronavirus cases since pandemic began nation is poised to enter its worst stretch yet of the pandemic with hospitalizations rising in thirty eight states. Wanted. To show you those statements tonight from Caldo Doshi in the ICU nurse and emily caps the. In part because of where they're from. Mr Dotion is an ICU nurse working at what is now converted into a full Cova D- unit in Duluth. MINNESOTA. But Emily Cops, the CNA she's in, as I said, a town called Quinta Kansas. Quinta Kansas is population one thousand. That's Work Winter Kansas's. It's four hours, drive north west of Wichita. If you're trying to find it on the map, it is as rural as rural America gets. That's what's happening. Now, that's what's driving this in the country. The last time we had case numbers anywhere near this Hai literally, most of the cases in the country at that time were from a handful of large population states for Florida and California and Texas and Arizona now, it's a handful of states it's everywhere. And there's something else I want to point out about where we are right now. Can we can we? Put the national graph back up there for a second. Look at look at where we've been not just where we are right now. But where we've been that I peek that we got in early April of terrible right when up to like thirty thousand cases day just atrocious thousands of Americans died hundred thousand people dead by the end of May because of that peak in new cases that we saw in early April. But? Look. How we got to that peak, we got to that peak from here on the graph look at the baseline we built up from in that case, right? We got to that I we were starting at zero it was a new virus, the no, the novel coronavirus we started with basically zero cases in this country in January February, and we went in that first peak from zero cases up to thirty thousand cases today. But then after that I peak and we started to come back down we didn't come all the way back down. We didn't go all the way back down to zero. We never actually got below an average of about twenty thousand new cases every day so that we started to surge again, we were searching from a higher point. There was tons more virus circulating in the country at a baseline level, and so because we were building on a bigger base line. When we had a second surge while there was higher amounts of virus circulating out there every day our second peak ended up being that much higher. Our second peak ended up being twice as I in terms of the peak rate of new infections because our baseline started higher. Right and in that second peak. Tens of thousands of people died right that's when we hit that second peak in high summer. All those cases stacked up with a high summer. We ended up with two hundred thousand Americans dead by the third. Week of September. After we saw that huge pecan cases in the high summer. But now, here's our problem right now because after that second scary second peak in the high summer when we drop back down again, not only do we not go down to zero wouldn't even go back down to where we we're. We're our baseline had previously been. When we drop down after that second peak, our new baseline didn't spend much time low forty, thousand new cases a day. and. Now that huge high baseline number is where we are climbing up from. So how high are we going to get this time I? Mean our peak number of infections keeps getting higher with each subsequent surge because with each subsequent surge, we're building on an increasingly large baseline. An increasingly large baseline of virus circulating in the country and that is happening over time as time moves from left to right on this graph, you can see our country increasingly failing overtime. And getting worse and worse and worse at stopping the spread of the virus, which is why peaks keep going up. If we can't get our baseline down ever if each new baseline between these surges is higher than each. Peak is going to be higher to and that many more Americans are going to die with each search. So, right now, we never got low right right now, this new search that we've got right now is coming out of a baseline. Of Forty thousand cases a day with a ton of virus circulating in the country. And where we are right now heading back up to a new peak, who knows how high it's going to be we've got a forty percent rise on hospitalizations in this country in the past month. In. The past week at least fourteen states have set hospitalization records. And we're just getting worse and worse and worse than even trying to contain it in some places yesterday in one county in. Idaho. Regional Health Board meeting they heard from their regional epidemiologist that the hospitals in that region of northern. Idaho. We're hitting capacity that they're major local hospital had the previous day hit ninety nine percent capacity even after doubling up patients in rooms and buying more physical hospital beds to try to put patients in them the local health board responded to that news from their epidemiologist by voting at that meeting. To repeal the local mask. mandate. They got told their hospitals or at capacity there's nowhere to put patients anymore in their response was to get rid of the local mass mandate. That's northern Idaho. One County over from where president trump recently tweeted in support of a local anti mask rally. Yeah take off the masks open everything up. And now here's what you get. Soaring covid nineteen infection rates in.

It's called once I was you it to memoir and I've seen Muddy A- work on the book talk about the book worry about the book. Love, the book hate the book. To seeing her the whole creative process. and. Now, the book is out and everyone loves the book and she's been on every other podcast. Since we worked together I I said, you need to be back on Latino rebels radio. Not. Only because. You know we work at full Doodo media. OR WE CO host an in the thick podcast. But. Because we're friends and we're family so. Here's money a wholesale on Latino rebels radio talking about. Book. Once I. was you. Maria. This is the fifth fourth or fifth time I've had you on some form of Latino rebels whether it's radio or streaming. So. You're quickly becoming quickly becoming enough Latino rebel. He knew I knew I. Knew About Latino rebels before I knew about you know crazy. No but listen I, know it's been. It's been such a historic week for you. With the book launch, and then you're on Lulu Garcia now audio and we're doing it in the thick, and then the Lou Garcia now laterals interview shows up on Latino USA and you're doing all this promotion. AT OPRAH DOT COM YEAH OPRAH DOT com, and then you got these amazing reviews and and it's I'm an you know you're like. It's crazy what's happening but I wanted to just have a conversation you and I with no like the book will come out of this conversation but I'm not going to be like Maria tell me about your book you know what I mean. Like I, want I want us to be like just you and me. TO GIVE PEOPLE SORT OF A. I don't know like a feel of what we do behind the scenes a little bit I mean there's a little bit of crazy that has to happen when you're like I'm in a launch, my own company or I'm GonNa Launch, you know something like letting rebels and I'm just going to do it and I'm Elliot died. So there's a of you know. For one way or another for one reason or another jumping off a cliff and just being like but we got this in one and so I feel like food thorough and Latino rebels and everything that you know in the fake and everything that has come as a result is really because we have nothing to lose Indian this you know that we had. People are like what am I ain't got none your so it's like I. Mean I have a lot but I'm just saying like A. doodle I didn't have. My own company and I was like. How scary was that house like we've talked about this but how scary was that moment for you because you talk about it in the book but you. Know I talk about it in the book because there's it's a very important moment because what you gotta get the book to really get all the juicy details but they. Don't reveal too much. Basically I'm told by a very important network show. That that I should like, take a hike and comeback. When some of the white guys had died and I was an I get into the subway and I'm crying Hulu I'm crying in the subway I'm alone I think that there's a real understanding of you know. We are psychic psychically and in many ways tied to our family but we're also very deeply existential. Alone I'm sorry. I go there. You know it's just like we stomas Finale Quintas sister solo or in says, I got home I called my sister and I said Britain. I said, I cannot go on unemployment. I've never gone on unemployment and I don't have a job. And very immigrant t very Mexican. The I was like I can't. I cannot tell my father that I went on unemployment and so people. Who See your brightness your star, your shot they see it from afar. You have a hard time seeing it yourself. You know this often happens to us and people had said why don't you do your own thing deepa Sunday that you're of our board was like do your own thing I was like this look what are you talking about? What my own thing and at that point you know somebody else had said I'll help you and so then I just said. All right. Well, let's do this and we had no assurance. We had no funding. We had nothing we drew up some paperwork. and. You start it in your in your in your apartment in my apartment. In Harley, actually I ended up I. my first office was exactly in the area of the apartment where I ended up finishing writing the book because we had to rearrange the apartment. You know we live in New York we don't. We don't have like a huge apartment so. GotTa move some things are actually the altar had to be moved the friend had. And the kids were still I mean, your kids were still kids I. Mean I know they're older now but you're talking we're talking ten years ago. Yeah yeah, Yeah Yeah they earn motherhood you were in the well, you know we'll. Yes. Although I think that's an ongoing conversation honestly, and the book is in inspiring these conversations in my own family, right? which is so where was mom? Where was she was she here where she present? Did she feel present? Did she give us what we need? So those are ongoing conversations especially because right now while I'm getting a lot of attention for the book this time also when I have to be giving attention to my family, there's always that balance and I think that's part of what the message of the book is. Is a psycho Saddiqi. Oh, you have it all you can have many things, but you're going to have to work at them and it's going to mean sacrifice and risk anyway to answer your question will you he was a very scary time I was so scared, I had no idea what to expect.

It's a place to work out embraced working out a wonder. Oh you're fully committed. I haven't been to mind and like do but ooh that's it. I Want Spencer different plus different. Now Sorry Joe. We did play Spike Ball. We didn't play spy aw but we already have four. You see my cross fit friends. Three guys me work. It just wouldn't have worked. I'll never forget that truce. Guys say my place in the fantasy league. No it's open GAZ US some no no I need thick guys have to stick together thick and thin. You gotta be in the League if you're GONNA play. If you're gonNA take a spike ball take my place in the leak. It has been almost two weeks have been there to get a text from one of them saying hey man you're gonna come out tomorrow the care maybe that's what I needed. My wife made me in a foreign city after a win in maybe I just needed someone to care. Maybe it takes me the right time psychological analysis of this. That's why showed up at the cross fit. What what I was GONNA say is. That's the first time worked out with the smell of weed all around me. You know they do that a lot in Colorado. I haven't heard everywhere you step off the plane. You smell it yeah. Eh One hoover driver. Tell me that her husband's landscaping business has just gone to crap because all their employees just the the man known you thirty seconds but that's I'm sorry she's like a generational thing like okay. Whatever just get to the airport dummy me yeah. I spent so much money on Newbury this weekend because you know ride one of the scooters the have scooters Peterson. I think they did have scooters but honestly I was only in Denver. I was in downtown. Denver like one night and that was enough that was enough almost went to rockies game. I was without baseball baseball game because they were like five dollar tickets. The Denver Broncos preseason game was going almost went to that now. I thank God I brought my smash brothers. Play that in the lucky one in beside the interstate in Denver Colorado check out the scientology the people I did not I should have I I there was a scientology church really close to my liquidity and and I really wanted to go explore but I was actually. I was a little nervous to do so. I don't know why like what do I was going to happen. I mean you're in a desperate position. You're emotionally vulnerable. Maybe wife life just band and they would. They might have got you. That would have been made this podcast much more interesting. I would be able to do it. I don't think you can I think that's like fight club and talk about it. I would have gone with you. I was gone with other people for sure. I mean like if they are you into scientology. Intelligently I mean I I just don't go and just keep pod going. I'm sure they get that all the time though like they probably don't even put up with that like okay. You're just here to kind of. Look around and get a story okay. Here's a brochure leaf like I'm sure that's what happened. 'cause. I don't think I could have pretended to be the interested like yeah. Tell me all about it. I'm thinking about thinking hard about scientology. Thing is what my life's missing. Do you think if I mean if if we joined a cult like as a joke but really went all in into the coal like we murder people but we were there and then we continued the podcast from the call. Do you think think we get more listeners. There's a point where you you know you gotta find a niche you do but I think cults to niche. That's the ultimate to Niche forty-seven a podcast to niche such thing as too niche for podcast is going to stuff. That's too niche you can do. This probably two hundred red at threads threads on different cults to read it slash our call. Would it be out colts or would we be doing this pod in occult. We'd be doing this pot in a colt. We wouldn't change with the call now. If we did a pot about colts that would get some business but wh- whether they know the people in the cold and now we're doing what if we just pretended hinted that we were in a Colt for a year and then we will make these advertisements spitzer foster and Joe Bell. We went undercover for one year in the world's. Most was dangerous. Colt this podcast about art experience. I like that. Let's see that we don't have to do anything. We didn't know if we'd make it out alive. The things Joe had I'm changed. You'll never look at colts the same okay okay what could do that and I'm actually still in the cold but I didn't tell you so the whole podcast like every time you bring up like an argument about him like I like like could've played devil's advocate a little bit. That's good we'll do that. I got more wedding stuff joe bill okay. This wedding was chock full fool of just a well really the rehearsal dinner was shot full moments okay and honestly it brings me to my CVC CVC number two thousand two hundred and eighty ready for this one. It's called don't titled Speeches. I I hate this. I hate it doesn't get brought up enough. I hate when somebody's about to give a speech and there were speeches at this breadth is rehearsal rehearsal. Maybe it was the last time you went to a wedding where they were speeches because I don't think I've been to one where there have been multiple. People giving speeches are wedding speeches. Well like the best man in just them to use them to yeah. This was like an open floor. This who are multiple people to people had power points for the speeches. You're shocked me. But what do you mean power power points. I mean they brought a powerpoint order to show that had like titles but here's the thing about title and speeches their never winners like they never what are you. What are you hoping when you title a speech and you announce the title of the speech like the speech titled Gods I love or whatever ever what are you trying to accomplish. You have never heard that. You've never heard somebody give a title these people did. I know speeches have have titled. You don't lead with it. You definitely don't lead with it and for me. I think if I gave a speech I would like in if I was famous or something. I would like the media do that did Martin. Luther King caused call his speech. I have a drink you think he did that or do. You think that just became what was known as that's one of shit has become. I mean he might titled. Like the notebook paper that sure but he did start off. I am Martin Luther King. I call this. It's the I have a dream speech. Let me begin it became that because it came this living breathing think that spoke a lot of people and they had to give it a name because it was. That's that's how you look up on Youtube. Yeah so anyway. Don't start with the title you speech because you think. Oh wait till you get way to get to the end. Title didn't make sense the whole time a- wait wait till I wrap it back around. You got to know him so clever. They don't do that. Just give a good speech first of all I'm finished. I wasn't asked to give speech you. You know I know the bride pretty well. It's what I do. Best is give speeches but I'll say this. I'm glad I didn't give a speech because there there were people talking with other people will give a speech. No no no no no no. Daddy don't play like that. I would shut up when I'm up there. You better respect my dive. How can people do that. They must have never spoken in public. Yeah Yeah exactly what it is that so it goes beyond like that's why we'll always call out people if they're talking talking. I do that at work you got. I'm like hey listen you. Do you need. I don't really care if you're not listening. Just don't talk yeah so the the mother of the bride of the groom you know I don't want to talk about people swamps or do we generally stay away from that fantasy theatre. Normally we evoke avoid controversy at all costs. She went forever for ever see head cues where you you knew like she wanted to cry yeah. She was one of these times she at the wedding. She was given a prayer and she had a paper for for the prayer. Prayer was written prayer was completely written..

Thailand's election ends in uncertainty

"Should Hello. From the newsroom if the financial times in London, I'm season blimp soon after five years of military dictatorship tie, vases, have finally had an opportunity to cheat the government, but those hoping for a clear and transparent election will have been disappointed with the result laid and turnout figures disputed that's a risk that political turmoil. Could return to Southeast Asia's second largest economy. Ravi Macci discusses what happens next with John southeast Asia. Correspondent. But the Nixon. Free and fair. Manny wrongdoing has been reported and sure norm. And some what buying happened even the in front of the station that was actually Chinnawat who for years dominated type politics as a billionaire politician. But now is contesting the elections from exile. John results have been trickling out since Sunday with the opposition alleging irregularities just tell us why this election is being so fraught, this is the first democratic exercise Thailand has had in the nearly five years since the military coup of twenty fourteen the deposed to government that never took office headed by Mr. toxins, sister, young ocean, Awad Tra I mean, this is an ongoing theme in Thai politics for many many decades where the military has ruled directly or indirectly. And it's emerging as the theme in this election is well, what do the results of the election show us broadly? Speaking at showed Thailand is as In impressed. pest elections of very divided country. You have on the one hand the Democratic Front parties and on the other the pro military camp that want to keep general view, the current military dictator and the military in control of the levers of government within the Democratic Front camp. You have seven parties have agreed to work together, the largest of which is put tie the biggest pro toxin party. This camp has a mass following in the north east of Thailand and put aloneness likely to emerge us the largest party in the lower house. We also have a new party called future forward headed by Tana. Torn a charismatic businessmen activists who appears to have come in third place. Again, we don't have a final seat count who will go with the Democratic Front middle of this week. They said that they had enough support for two hundred fifty five seats in the lower house, which would be enough to get them a working majority not necessarily enough to get. Elected in his government because they need support of two hundred fifty senators as well, we're under control of the Quinta on the other side. Yes the punk portraits. The winter party emerged as the winner of the popular vote and looks likely to head the next government because they control the Senate seats another force. That's worth speaking about is boom Gye Thai or Thai pride new party headed by entertain another billionaire businessman who is emerging as a kingmaker because he could go either with the democratic camp were with the junta. And it seems that both sides will need his support in order to form a stable government. What are the gestures out the opposition's making about why the results perhaps aren't as credible? As the hunt claims to be it's not just the opposition. There were a lot of questions about the integrity of the vote both from office in parties. And from the limited number of monitors who were able to do their work in Thailand on voting day on the twenty four th there were questions about. Between the voter rolls. The numbers of voters registered and the number of ballots that actually ended up being cast the worst allegations of vote buying of which I personally haven't seen proof. An I'll be careful to say that here the biggest question, and it's a lingering question as I speak is around the delay in reporting the results, which in every past recent election came out on election night by nine or ten pm. But we're delayed for several days and still haven't been reported as I speak. Explain to us. How will the new government be determined? Yes. This is the first government to be formed under a new constitution that was drawn up after the military coup with the apparent design of keeping the tax and movement out of power and entrenching the rule of the military. The vote for prime minister will be conducted by seven hundred fifty and peace five hundred in the lower house who were democratically elected, I'll be in a flawed. Imperfect election and then two hundred fifty senators who will be handpicked by the junta will also have a vote. So this gives an automatic sort of one third advantage to prolong tra-, the pro-junta party that emerged as the winner of the popular vote and put them in pole position to form the next government. If we back up a good bit of the broader context, why is Thailand so important to the region, it's important economically. It's also I mean, there's kind of a bigger story in south East Asia. Now of what seems to be a move away from democratic rule. There's also been kind of continuing political drama in Thailand where you go through periods of stability and periods of great unrest. There's a lot of money most of Asian some of it western tied up in Thai stocks and bonds, this is a country that experienced of massive financial crisis less than two decades ago, and it's just coming out of it. So I think it's been it's of interest both for business. People also for watchers of democracy. You spoke to toxin, the billionaire politician. Former prime minister, why is he so vociferous in his opposition to the results is a major player in Thai politics. I mean, this is a man who's movement and followers have won every election since two thousand one possibly up to including this election. Although we don't have final results yet. He thinks Thailand could do better in short and thinks that it did under the government's that he and his sister ran, and he also thinks this election was not free and fair. Can you just run us through in a way the divisions acceded to the politics between guests the urban leads? Maybe some of the rural poor who seemed to be very supportive toxin. It's largely regionally based support of put tie. His main party are clustered mostly in northern and eastern Thailand largely rural poor who benefitted over the years from populous spending programs champion by his government's up against them as the Bangkok elite sort of royalist. And military and civil servants who like the status quo and to absolutely loathe his brand of politics. And indeed say it's corrupt and cost the country. Billions how did the politics then work? If toxin is in the country his sisters no longer there. Either he lives in self-imposed exile, his absence hasn't actually changed that much although arguably put has not done as well as it has in recent elections, but the same divisions or there has follow us her still there until recently. This was the only party with a mass following with a real political machine across Thailand. And it did they did very well in this election. We don't know quite how well yet we won't know for certain until may ninth when final results are announced that said it seems like his camp lost some support to new parties. Most notably future forward headed by another anti-military billionaire activists figure who does live in Thailand. Mr. Tana, tore whose party appears to have come in. Third place. So I mean, there are voices saying that toxin ISM and toxin that you know, his time is passing. Let me talk about the economy because talent is the second biggest economy inside Asia. What are the indications for the comic performance of the country, and perhaps even the water region? I think Tyler's entering without doubt a period of uncertainty, the consultancies that specialize in political risk have been warning this week of enhanced risk. There've been signs that some investors have been taking money out of Thai stocks and bonds, and this, of course, is because of the history of street unrest in Thailand. Over the past two decades of toxin ISM wearing the Richards against the shirts some violence. Dozens of people killed at one point in twenty ten. There's a fear that the process could go off the rails. Again, these two camps pitched against each other for now, it's a peaceful exercise. But when doesn't know how long that will last. What is the next stage of the process that we
