"Well, well, the one thing I've learned writing books don't be jealous of anybody. Don't sit there and think that person has a better life. If I could only get that party, if I only live in that house, I'd be happy. It's just not true. It's funny you say that. I had the privilege of being friends with dick cavet who knew Johnny Carson and I remember he was on it might have been Elizabeth Taylor had just died. So it might have been Larry King or might have been a Piers Morgan. But cavit said that we should never envy these people, just about what you said. Right. He said, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton tremendous alcoholics, both of them or Burton died in his 50s of alcoholism we forget the horrible pain, the misery of multiple marriages, divorces. It's very easy to forget those things, because we just see what's on the surface. But I think it's good to be reminded, which is why I'm glad you've written your book.

When Did Marriage Become so Hard?

"To understand marriage. Today we thought it best to go back to a time and place when marriage was very different. Well i've been studying the history of family for many many years. But i specifically got interested in marriage as we got into these debates. About what traditional marriage was that. Stephanie coons. She's a professor at the evergreen state college and the author of the book marriage a history. Stephanie says the earliest marriages had nothing to do with the feelings of two people or their attraction to one. Another as you probably know marriage was much more about economics and acquiring powerful inlaws marriage originally arose in more egalitarian ban level societies as a way of sharing resources and establishing a peaceful relations with groups. That you might otherwise only see occasionally and you might not know if they were going to be friends or enemies It was a way of circulating obligations and goods. Mary my child off to you and that means you owe me things. But i also you things. Stephanie brought up a famous example from history. The union between cleopatra of egypt and mark antony of rome elizabeth taylor as cleopatra siren of the niles this is from a nineteen sixty three film version. Richard burton as mark antony impetuous leader once in pinson legion dreaded adversary on the field of battle. The hollywood version of the story portrays cleopatra and antony as being very much in love but stephanie paints a slightly different picture. I think the theme song for that Relationship could have been what's love got to do with it. They may have been passionate but it was more passion for power than a sexual. Although sexual probably entered into it to cleopatra and antony marriage was primarily about strategy wrong egypt with the two most powerful empires in the world so getting them anybody who got them together and the gotten alliance between them would be unstoppable.

"Calendar and filling in for Casey today and tomorrow and I was just texting that smile. That number 200 e think I can win now. Think I'm allowed to win? Although I am kind of affiliated with the station. I don't know if I can win, actually delete the text, all right? If you want to weigh in, we're talking about the center of U. S. Senator Richard Burr by his own party, The North Carolina Republican Party censures in a unanimous vote of the senior senator over his vote to convict President Trump on the impeachment charge of incitement, the numbers 888934 78 74. I am not so sure this was worth it. I understand it made people feel good that wanted to, you know, stick it to ber. I get that and I get that there. Maybe you know some other benefit that I'm just not Realizing its import, But I think by and large, you open yourself up for so much criticism and mockery. I not sure it was worth it because honestly, like What? What do you get out of that? What did you win? What was the point? What's the benefit that the Republican Party gets for? Censuring Richard Burton, Right? What's the benefit? What was the juice In this scenario? What's the juice is worth the squeeze. What's the juice? That you got to say We didn't like bird doing this. Sending a message that you better not do this. If you're going to be a Republican senator, keep people in line, you know? Do you think that's gonna be the case? Do you think that that is going to keep people in line? If this something like this ever happens again, which No. Well, I try not to make predictions because I'm usually rise. I don't predict jury trial outcomes and I don't predict elections any longer. 2020 16 taught me I'm not going to predict electoral outcomes anymore. And so I haven't. So if you're asking me for election predictions or jury predictions, I'm not your guy. I'm not good at it. Let me go over here. Oh, Cameron. I'm living. What is the deal? I literally call out. I'm gonna take Cameron's call and Cameron dropped off the line. It's not all right. Well, that's fine. 888934 78 74 Maybe hearing me sing. I'm not good with predictions, and he was like, Well, then I'm not gonna like I talked to Pete. Who cares? Ronald Brownstein. You know, this guy is he's national journal writer. He's a senior editor at the Atlantic. He's a senior political analyst for CNN. Like If you saw the guy he's got, like the little round glasses, you would know him. He looks kind of like Richard Dreyfuss. Anyway. Hey, had a tweet yesterday, citing a new Quinnipiac poll that captures what he calls the squeeze on the GOP the vast majority of its voters in the Republican Party. They want a big Future role for Donald Trump 75% of Republican voters want Trump to have a big role in the party in the future. 21% do not. So that's the split. Okay, which is pretty amazing. If you think about it. I don't know how this compares to other presidents like did they was there were similar, You know, like a 75 to 21 split with former president George W. Bush. I don't know. But 21% do not want him to play a big role. And 24 to 28% of Republicans actually blame him for the capital Riot. 24. So one out of every four Republicans blame Trump for the riot. If even a minority of those unease e Republicans drift away from a trump lead GOP that becomes catastrophic for the party. That's the concern that if you have ah, quarter of your voters that don't want trump around and think he was the cause of the riot. If that's the case, and they all go somewhere else now that's the other questions like Where do they go? Ah, glad you asked. Tom Nichols, who is with the Lincoln Project, and I'm no fan of the Lincoln Project. He's a never Trumper and he's one of those guys. You've probably heard folks say this before, like, Trump broke that person right? And it is amazing, And this is goes for Trump supporters as well as opponents like There were so many people that I've become so disappointed in over the last five years. Because they showed themselves to be essentially incapable of viewing any topic or policy or event except through the prism of Donald Trump. Everything is seen through Trump. And it's It's such a limiting way to look at things. First of all. Second Look Cove. It's a perfect example of right the coronavirus. Everybody started looking through looking at that through the prism of Trump and then making decisions based on Well, what's trump thing? Then I'm for it, or I'm against it. Look at what New York Andrew Cuomo. I mean, like I expected him at one point to say, Well, you know, it's just Johnson in this war like that's the reason I punched you, like I cannot understand people who become so invested In one person that they don't even know that it dictates how they think about stuff again. I've never been sort of a throne sniffer kind of a person in politics, so maybe I'm unique in this sense, But Tom Nichols was one of these guys. Tom Nichols was a guy that I had interviewed before. In the past. He had written a book called The Death of Expertise. He wrote a really good piece. I thought years ago for the Federalist. That's when I interviewed him about the lost boys about school shootings and such And then along comes Trump and Tom Nichols. Is this guy up in Connecticut? Who is, uh, was I should say, a Republican because he's now no longer a Republican, you know, made a big deal about how he tore up his voter registration, which he had done previously during like I want to say George W. Bush is era or something I forget, but he has a He had a bit of a history of, you know, tearing up his Republican voter card, but he then went full, Never Trump where he hooked up with the never with the Lincoln Project, people. But here's what he said in response to Ronald Braunstein's tweet, citing the Quinnipiac polling data. But he says Democrats This is his plea to the Democrats, he says. This is the door opening to become a large coalitional governing party. But on Lee, if you can convince the Comus ours Among you toe. Let go of purity testing each other and the rest of us. You manage that? You have a real opportunity here. Okay, So I quote this from Tom Nichols on Lee for this purpose. There is a belief among a lot of these sort of New England Republican types. A lot of the establishment Republican establishment people who look at like the pro lifers and a lot of Trump supporters like you icky lately. That's how they kind of look at. You know the hoi polloi. They're They're not fans. And they would very much like to be a part of a governing class that is left of center, a k a moderate as they would call it right. A left of center coalition where the slide Towards state is, um, is a little bit more Fabian and not his revolutionary. If you will, right, we'd like to go there. You know, we agree on the destination. We just would like Tohno slow down and take in the scenery a little bit more on the way that's all. And so these folks, these a lot of these folks in the Lincoln Project, for example, they think that there is a place for them in this in this idea of a coalitional..

Yeah, I don't think send you an fill be made quite the cultural impact, but he certainly did a great deal in the case of Saudi Arabia given his very personal relationship with Bob Evans South especially when it came to negotiating with the West when Saudi Arabia realized that they were sitting on a goldmine of oil but that's that's beyond the point. Those are the two figures I think of and then the case of Richard and he's all three of them are obviously exceptional figures. But when I look at Richard Burton if he saw was happening right now, I think he just be disappointed but not surprised. I'm trying to have a great example.

It has a distinct purpose to it. It's more than enjoying our jollies as it were dead. Whereas you go to the late nineteenth century and Richard Burton and he's actively having to circumvent actual law to ensure thought he and and those that he is affiliated with in terms of the publication don't end up behind bars. So you're looking at two very very different societal views of the exact same topic interlinked in this most unusual way in terms of how they treat the subject whereas this is something that would be available at the time. It was written and you know, not too long after of course in the case of Richard Burton bring it back to Victorian England. He's always trying to skirt the law in terms of being able to translate it and distribute it and I find that if a parent irony absolutely captivating that is so true people and just a final question about fevers. How do you feel Richard Burton feel about the karma sutra table? A because the thing that was so taboo has become so normalized today. I think I think I've seen pop up versions of the Kama Sutra for sale as like a joke gift. How did she hear the see? How do you think you would feel about how the Kamasutra Stoners now? Well, of course as we mentioned prior, this would be pure speculation. Once again, just like I was talking about the the actual author the Kama Sutra I don't think he would be surprised but I kind of imagined he'd be a little disappointed hm because everybody knows without a doubt that sex sells what it is might as well live up to it because it's the reality of our world. Just wait to see the thumbnail for this episode on YouTube to make least I get off that is oh God hadn't thought about that yet to imagine to be a little disappointed because this is a guy who's went to very long lengths to really get the flavor and the Nuance off.

Like same old mercenary old school like 1970s wild-goose style which is like an old movie with Richard Burton, but you know, that was the intro and I was like what is going on and then of course Blackwater long shot up that whole Square full of civilians and that happened when I was in Iraq and we felt a lot of the Fallout from that because of course the Iraqis don't differentiate between you know, I'm white Anglo folks with rifles wearing camouflage who are mercenaries versus American soldiers. So we all kind of bore the brunt but then I started seeing it elsewhere right and and I'll ask about that but I started seeing how everything from the gate guards to the you know, the shit Pumpers to I mean you name it were we're sort of contracted out and stats bear this out..

"In the dirt alert. High friends. Good morning. Good morning. No. Just the other night, I was scrolling through some sort of social media. And then I saw this little video of the most expensive engagement rings that were ever given to celebrities. Oh, now it's a really big deal. If you make the list twice, which J. Lo made it twice, one from her ring from Ben Affleck and then the other one from Marc Anthony. And now I think if that list was updated, probably the one from a rod would also make that list is well, but one of the rings was Cardi Bees ring from offset And as I was thinking about this list of these celebrities and these massive engagement rings, I mean, some of them were worth like $5 million, and some of them were vintage like Aah! Aah! Grace Kelly's and then Elizabeth Taylor's From Richard Burton. Those were some of the vintage rings, but the ring that Cardi B got from offset Which I think may be Cardi B probably bought herself. No shame in that game was so massive, and I thought, I wonder how many of these marriages ended in divorce turned out a lot of them. And now we can add another one because Cardi B filed for divorce from her husband offset on Tuesday. That was a long way to get to that headline. But that's just the road. I'm taking today that time to fill its fine, thank you very much. I'd be really bad for her to finally just say we're done. Wells cheated on her before she forgave him. She's he's been cheating on her. The entire time they've been together is what sources are telling people. They have a two year old daughter together culture. She didn't want to be embarrassed, but she's had enough. She was looking the other way because of the baby. He's 28 She's 27. And there have been tons of accusations of offsets infidelity. I mean, including like sex tapes, and I mean, three months after they got married, there was hookups with other women like Oh, boy, I mean, honestly. Well again. As Alexis said, This must be really bad. Then that is a list. I mean, you know if you know it's for better for worse in sickness and in health, but Nothing of the vows had anything that you just listed. Nope. Not at all. Not invited for the new music, though, and also the things that she's going to share because she pretty much says it and puts it out there She does. Yeah. She is amending her divorce documents because she wants it to be super amicable. The documents that were filed made it seem Like she wanted sole custody of their little girl, which is not the case. She wants him to be part of her life to. So she's amending the documents. You know, sometimes attorneys just file things and Who reads all that Fine print. I mean, how many times do you just click agree when Apple asks you to do something? I did it a few yesterday in around four o'clock. Yeah, Whatever. Just click. Agree. I know I hear you. I hear you. Okay, so US Weekly is reporting that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are working through a rough patch after spending much of the Corona virus pandemic at his Oklahoma ranch that they feel suffocated. And stressed, and they're both stretched to the limit. I bring you 2020 and virtually everyone, If you are not saying that you are feeling stretched to the limit. Yeah, I am so happy for you Something think everybody else's Yeah, you are alone. You know, they just bought this $13.2 million mansion in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles. And apparently, it's more money more problems because a lot of the stress came with moving. I'm sure they were lifting boxes and packing up that U haul themselves Real challenge very hard. Very, very hard. I just I have hit a point where if I ever move again, which I never want to do again, I want to die in this house. And I want whoever buys it to go, Boy. That kitchen is data. Because they redid it 40 years ago. That's exactly how I want it to be I I just cannot move myself again. Like I can say is it's physically impossible. I'm too emotionally unstable there certain things I can do myself like big my own bread raised my own chickens get grow food. I cannot move stuff. The other thing is, I don't want to burden my friends. No, please help me move Steve matters and when it was be laying, he was like, I'm not going to hire anyone. I'm just gonna have Friends come and do it. And I was like, What are you Hora? We had a friend. I won't call anybody out. But we had a friend Move recently. Yeah, and the issues like I did it. I'm moving, and I have a very blunt friend. I mean, very blunt. I'm not going to name any names, but we were. We were at a happy hour. And I don't know if the friend moving was waiting for us to be alone for the offer. But the blunt friend that will just call Sally Sally was like I just want to be blunt. I'm not going to help me move like I will help you rearrange furniture. I will help you too old for this, but she was. I just have to be honest. I hate moving and I am not going to help you move and we died laughing and now it's fair. Yeah, For me. It is horrible. There are certain things that you think like I can do it myself. Like my husband and his dad built our fence in our house. You know, I mean that he can do it themselves if we move No, no, I can't do it again. Meeting of moving Matt Lauer has a lot of stuff. I'm sure in his palatial Hamptons estate. It went back on the market for $43.99 million. Not quite 44 million. Hey, paid. No. He bought it from Richard Gere for 36.5 million. In June of 2016. Initially, Richard Gere was asking $65 million for the estate, but then cut the price down and was able to make a deal with Matt Lauer for 36.5. It's a 6.3 acre gated property. It's on Actors Colony Road in an enclave north of Sag Harbor. That whole thing sons fans say so fancy. There's a main mansion that was built in 1902 butts been completely renovated.

Bridging Ethereum Wallets with Pedro Gomes

"Pedro could you do us a favor and give us an introduction on who you are where your minds at and how you ended up in the CRYPTO space today cope. Thanks for having me on the show guys. Of course so I. I started an e commerce as a developer building online shops in one of the things. That always really intrigued me. Was the payment systems like paypal striper like Mike Prussia's in terms of tech and then eventually moved into Fintech and I started working smart banking so I was always kind of leaning towards like personal. Finance user experience spoke after a few months working smart banking. You get a good grasp of the traditional finance regulations and everything and that's where I got really bored and tired of like developing features and not having to comply with regulators and features getting toned or cancelled. And that's where I got into tier when I saw smart contracts. I heard about this before but it was just a internet money but cerium really brought me into the building. A smart contract imprecations on chain. That's where I fought. This is where finance is really going to go. And it's going to move away from all the traditional finance and regulations and everything people will be really in charge of their personal finance. And that's the part that I was mostly involved was developing bang. Interfaces so wallets felt like the really next step and one of the companies that I worked I balanced and balanced was developing Interfaces for not only managing portfolios but also developing a wallets. But at the time there weren't many good solutions for building wallets We actually played around. With a semi custodial solution but then we really didn't want to dive into the the the idea of having to manage keys for the user. There was a lot of risk involved in that so we kind of just. We started brainstorming. About like how could we improve the user experience? The first APP was bounced manager where we developed Lake. Immanent away to just manage your tokens and indices very nicely so you could just like law again and have met a mosque never thing but a lot of the experience was kinda conditioned by the waltz like it was always around we can do as much as many. Moskowitz allow us and we really were man. We really wish we could just like control the wallet side. We should build a mobile. And then that's that's where the the direction kinda headed. The problem was a mobile wallets and our interface weren't really playing together because the beauty of the interface was having the full desktop screened manage. Your portfolio Tokens San Receive Exchange. But how could we then integrate with our mobile wallet which would store the private keys and we can actually provide a better experience for signing transactions messages. And that's where Walt can came in and well it connect. Kinda was inspired by. What's up? I remember once more of a desktop user so I had once web and you can just Kinda cure code and it just does this handshake between the device. And from that point. You literally just use your desktop. Yep that's volley go a little bit into you. Know more on the tactful while it connected. Let's let's sort of backpedal a bit more than just sort of diving more about who? You are So like that being said like you came into space. You had like you know your own like idealistic view on openness and Permission List like being able to build an innovate on top of these financial tools. That you really wanted to do so. You saw an opportunity in niche break into the space like that being said. So where did you find your earliest connections into the community before you started working on balance? And all that stuff. How did you sort of make that segue into traditional finance? Here's this thing. Daring of cool smart contracts liberty. Let me do my part to help here as I should be funny story actually so I I was. I was just doing my day job. The Smart Bang and I would spend most of my time just talking to my peers about look at this thing that the gym can do. Look at this thing that Jim could do and they would always joke about every day. I would have some fun. Facts about the tearoom some cool project that I've found and I would just like spend more and more time even during my job like looking to term style and one of the things that I did most was joining twitter and start tweeting about determine stuff and I. I remember applying like on a few jobs. I remember I played for Aragon and other jobs with at the time it had like no experience watching. It was definitely no go but On twitter through the M Richard Burton from balanced reach. That's how he space. I just got at the end and he was like you seem like a pretty solid developer and year actually know about to tear him so we should talk and then we just met up and he was in London at the time. That's where I was working for and then we went to an ATM. Meet up at the time which was so small like at the time. It looked great but that I think about it. There was like twenty people and it was awesome. It was like the first cross about how people were talking about tokens and creating different interfaces and everything and at that moment I was hooked. Not There I was just okay. I gotTA leave this traditional financing and that's when I joined balance around August two thousand seventeen so Early eat area Morella. I'm sorry go ahead after me major but just curious early term that Oliver I mean were you in early. Two thousand two thousand seventeen doesn't seem early compared to a lot of folks in the space. Well it all depends on where. You're looking at the charts. Basically I think asking is like were you early insurance financially which led to your further because expansion on your motives or was it just like pure curiosity well. I. I didn't even unencrypted time. I was really I was really just. I remember every time I told even on my regular job I would talk to my peers and there were like. Oh but bitcoin is going this and this and this and I'm like you're missing the point. I was completely baffled by how they were looking at. The prices and I was just like look at this tech and everything and I remember looking documentation and it was only around that year in December. Though is like wow. I'm kind of missing this whole run like I should buy some meat though is like really caught up by technology. I think I missed out a lot of the financial gain space. Its Own. It's important now. I'm like full on the and I own more cryptic than feed. Yeah it's that's a fun game to play. It is hard to manage. Sometimes it's fun so my question is You said you were traditional finance and a lot of features in at County Rail. A lot of plans that got thrown in the trash can things that you just couldn't do because of compliance or otherwise. So how old one of the things that you couldn't do that you can't and you're Bernie crypto well. There's a lot of clever ways that he can play around with like for example the same way we have compound than everything we had like these cold goals which were like these kind of buckets of money that he could put aside in everything. But there's only so much we could do so what we ended up just doing was just splitting into different accounts so the person could just like put money aside for a trip or put money aside for a lot of the wanted to buy so it was. Kinda like just containerized. Their money into different buckets. But we couldn't do much like there was so much we can do like. That could go into savings that there were so many financial instruments that we could build for their own financial empowerment that warm compliance because there were so many regulation issues with us putting some interesting to like those buckets for example and Yeah so it's Kinda like you. You wanted to be able to automate people's financial lives in a way that benefited but because the regulations probably let's just get down to the brass tacks. Everybody's gotTa make some money on the processes you couldn't do it. Yeah there there's a there's a very big barrier to new

The Life of Mike Nichols

"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred
