"The american dream really is what it is. That's what it's all about. And i love the fact that you have this family unit. Although you had your issues family guys are strong. He said unit. You all work together. And that's where. I think we need to see more of that. Would strengthen our entire you our entire country we strengthen our family units may bring some god back into the flow. I think most of the problems. We see an answer really quickly well. Our family has problems with everybody. Who a lot of dark dirty laundry. They're out on our show and we have our ups and bound our challenges. You know we bumped in our relationships and things and you know i feel very fortunate as as the father of my forecast now four grandkids. You know my parents. And i worked really hard to kind of try to keep you know. It's not always easy. Gets kind of thin. The more things multiplying have extended family but I worked really hard to try to spread myself out and keep my relationship. I or my forget the phone talking. You know anytime over here. Babysit their kids. I've seen that just being here and being here and so You know the cross relationship bumping and in and you know you you feel bad. Sometimes you can seven to do something about it all the time. You can't have to let little time. He'll be hurt some feeling and But it some doing shows like yours is super important because it really. I do hope inspired me. I hope it inspires others That being you know parenting is a is a big responsibility like you say. We're not big sittard. Where parents. I take my sons zachary says that to me all the time He's been torian. And jeremy audrey and That that that's taken the responsibility of fatherhood seriously and realizing that You could always do better and being a father is on his first class job. Well said and i used to be able to say. I'm at the one and only roloff farm. But i just learned today that this isn't the one dot com so on that now i want to turn it over to your legacy here. What what do you want. What would you say you want a legacy of the role or farm to be perkins on now. I you know it's funny. I think about legacy and you know i think that The you know the show. Obviously there's a lot of with alexei. We've got the best home videos in the world. You know. I always used to be a fanatic video with the family and growing before the show. Dark tacoma video cameras capture home videos and stuff. They're gonna be legacy of great home videos. And one day. When i get my rocky german sit there and head in all credit you know but then also the show came in and took over. So i put my video camera way and it's collected dust ever since you now and But i i you know the whole having obviously the kit you kids and our grandkids. That's my legs on those kids. Look back on long after. I'm gone if they were grandpa. You know look at the school cabin. Look at the score castle. Look at the school farm in a look at businesses that he that we could take advantage of. You want them to build on the success that they have you want them to be interested in in the farm and the land and and and fact that we carved out a really nice little here in this area and this is a great little location. Don't wanna see apartments built on on our land. We wanted to be something that the kids can enjoy In generations kind of joy. And so that. That's the challenge how to put that in place And make sure that the website you can be footprint the roloff this roll off from this raw farm has here You know in history. And what would you say. That would be obviously running on. I think it seventeen seasons. We're about the driveway. The eighteenth season able to see them the done forty years. You know. we've been doing this for the first time. I looked up an old contract. I think we. I went under contract seventeen years ago. Numbers like the when we first started about how to do this. And we did a couple of pilots before the actual real pilot came on is alliance. But i think we're in fifteen years of being on air two thousand six if i'm not mistaken march two that sick Joe how many that our show went for two degree light originally. What would you say that you hope to be the legacy of the show here when it does eventually run its course what do you hope the legacy of little people big world. Why you know. I love reality. Television has always been our docu-dramas is a more accurate reality television. That a game show you know or a you know is that or is that the docudrama where they roughly all the family story lines The terminology but you know we've never won any awards in hollywood for even we've been we've have gotten against book of world records for the longest running reality television family show a look at the title in history so we you know more than the car catching them more than the dodgers you know. Got a lot of episode so we can run every single year since two thousand and six of you know and but hollywood reality television kind of the the bad step travel you know of of of tv and for whatever reason and But we think we've changed the world with little people big world. You know little bit. Well we think had made people say about little people a little different and it certainly has spawned off. Sister shows a kind of a whole genre. There's a whole array of great little people shows out there now both on tlc and other channels that show the everyday life of little doctor's bill and jen klein the little couple on there's On the show right. And they're gonna print now..

"Her fault. It's not her fault this happen then. I would hope that. That's the same advice. Tori guests knows that it's not her fault. This is a common thing that happens and moulton. Ninety percent of the time is nothing you can do to prevent it from happening so deep and long know. I want to address some of the rumors that i read quite often. I keep up today part of the conversation. One of the hit this one here. You mentioned it a little bit. We were talking about with the offices here. Matt roloff plans to retire. Twenty twenty two. you know. I don't know where these people come up with this. Somebody sits around and dreams up now now that particular one you know i was laugh at and wait a minute did i say your i do talk about only in the context that i want to reduce the amount of work. I'm trying to recruit one of the kids start. Mowing the lawn guys. I want to start timing but not no serious Real talk about retirement shortly in a time line. I think that article that came up on my news flash. I would hope you give this case here. Yeah we'll talk to her. Let me hit this. One matt meryl would rather jeremy take over the law arm rather than zach. Not doesn't i have no preference on taking on from what i would love to see. Most i'm gonna put this on record with you. I'd love to see the kids. Come together and come up with a mixed Involvement in taking the somehow credit corporation share. You know maybe one would live in the house where the other one would help with this and they would share in the benefits of the ownership of the farm. I mean jacob jacob now or have an interest in dirt. And i want to be involved with. He wants to take make a big compost pile. You know and have a little corner of the farmer do his complex in a. I want that to happen. So I want my kids to have some sort of Seat at the table. If you will on the future of the farm into wetter we can work out. But no that article is completely faltered notes things. I want one kid to be favored over other kid in terms of ownership of the farm. I mean it's true that germany has always been the defacto people have just assume at But all the kids wanna have some sort of figure in the pies so to speak they all maybe not active interest but maybe a silent interest And so we're we're we're having those discussions on their complicated until for right. Now we're getting through cohen and settling out. What's going to be the future of the pumpkin. Pumpkin patch I've owned a whole farm now and we're gonna sit down. It's written on my estate planning on program as shared endeavor and but if one of the kids decides he wants to have a bigger piece of the responsibility that mo- more do more mowing spend more time on the road to taylor then we're will continue to be open to the contract but that's when they come out with these articles like that out my mind i mean sometimes i laugh and sometimes i cry that what people you know some of the bite my tongue off because you know we've been praying being in this business for as long as we have we've been trained to ignore media and when things come to our attention that aren't true are hurtful you know we've been trying all my kids were so perfect skin the grew up with you know have sex and don't worry about it just ignore it can go about your business and you don't give credibility but stop times these people assuming they're adults and they act like will kid where they put out bad information the one of the most grievous to me recently with something about matt roll up the you know relied on pilar while i have that down your man i wanted to address i know you had to reduce the amount of people like everybody else with covid Some people get laid off some people had to shut. Their business is down. You kept the farm rolling through kovic so i. I was surprised to read that. It said that you took out something a two hundred thousand dollar ep loan. I was surprised. At what actually happened here. I know pinky nine zero and one art one news outlet wrote that and then other ones picked up from them matt role of rely on ppp. It's not true that didn't happen. And matt roloff did another another farm in weren't corolla far so there's some confusion there okay. But you know what it's irresponsible of these news outlets Number one the ones that originally sorts out information shame on them for being riding something not if they're sophisticated enough to look up that the roll update a roller farm. Got a couple of hundred thousand dollars. Pp then they should be sophisticated to look that. That's not this role our family you know there's other roll up roll role because we sort of made the roloff name genetical a thing on tv that every other officers. We didn't even know this form. We never met any of them. Were not no harm to them. They need people. I mean that's what they're for and help my circumstances here at being owner of this role on farm. That's you're the one that you know. I'm sitting on your sitting on. We didn't have to do that. And we you know we were nervous. We we looked at option but we were able to. I've got up earlier and working harder. we're blessed to be able to continue to. The show could still do a pumpkin patch last year. We had to reduce it but we cut our expensive not our employees. We kept our employees on And We didn't hire me. Seemed people temporary as we typically do in october. We kinda reduced them. That doubt profitable. We kept our full-time. We actually added people You know just try to keep them off unemployment. Same so we will. we take. We were doing a lot of good things to hear the pumpkin. Patch roloff farms roloff. Roll fun to keep on keeping going k. Contribute to the economy and try to you know. Pay our cats and and not you know my dad. Another huge implants. When my when i was a kid you know my dad used to say you're not gonna live off other people me no money. I mean some people have to do that. I don't begrudge anybody on the needs a sit up governments. Therefore but i do regret people. That don't need it that Know that take advantage of that. Because you know i think a lot of taxes. Then you know it's fine but you gotta do is part of your civic duty and and responsible billion. My father taught me that taught me you know he just fight my disability and i could be on disability in common so i took my body too cranky to get out of bed this morning. Now get up and go out there and pound the pavement and work a little harder. Fashion smarter make things happen An contribute don't don't be the drop down.

"I take them out to dinner periodically. Every couple of don't live far from here to the dinner. You know talked about how the kids are doing. The baby's grandbabies. I don't see tories parents as often my birthday parties and things like that and not i get along great with you. Know everybody's kind of a big happy family. And amy and chris and we all bodey had a birthday party recently on all the you know the german family over there and we were there and then you know when lila had her birthday. We all got together with their parents in the in. The wife's parents soaks Where does pretty much big extended happy family. Most of the top. We have our moments as we all do mad so and then turning it over here to you as a dad. I know you got hit twins right off the gate here. We have myself. We have four kids from my wife. And i go in from two to three was probably the most difficult transition for us. As far as the nomination of kids what would you say was most challenging transition for you as far as number of kids that you went through i would say going from the trends you know. We were just like in a certain child. That was a wakeup call. A little bit that you know. Got the twins her during the toddler thing. And now you got a new baby. And you know with the twins. We we're very systematic. When you pull out the diapers we pull to diapers you know and when you line them up lying wife get the wipes and get two bottles. And so don't get me wrong. He would have something completely different to say about how hard which one would but for me. I was like wait a minute. I'm getting snapped toddler. Now have another baby that would be I would save going to to three was sort of a wake up. Call once you get the four and you kind of like okay. We got this down you know. Yeah nothing but respect for people have twin. Because i just don't by omar i two are about fifteen months apart and that was close that you know a little bit of their taste. But i couldn't imagine doing double duty at the same time so always have respect for people that are parents of twins. What about what were grown up. Did you always wanna have kids. When did it become known. Jewish that i would love to have kids or start families. That's something you always wanted to do. I always wanted to have careful thought expected. I would have children and someday i didn't know how many i think i talked about having a just two or three and so when we had a jacobs the one You know a little bit of fried. That took us off guard a little bit but that would grade. We're super happy with all of our kids. And they all bring something very special and joyful our lives and what has been. I mean. obviously this year everyone's to regular the pandemic has sent everybody pretty hard. What has been some of the challenges of you being granted that interrupt relationship with how many times often you could see the grandkids and how does depend on kind of place. You really should with the kids and the grandkids while obviously covert has affected everybody including honest here. Now we're very very blasted fortunate that we have this farm. You know this is one hundred and ten acres with many buildings and sleeping orders and kidron and blazes so we have been we call the star bubble rollo far bobble and we get tested regularly. We send in test cats and and you know. Send them out to labs. We'll get i get tested on almost every week During the to make sure that. I'm not getting it and pass it on so on but we take all the precautions. You know we've been doing the mask and vaccinated fully vaccinated now for last couple of months but Lee distorted costing our fingers and praying that nobody got the cova. Nobody brought the cope the bubble kobe. Indoor bubble and But i i haven't had you know not see the ran kids mud multi. Although it did we were trapped in their zone auto because of travel restrictions came up. Karen and i happened to be down in arizona when they put some tabby duty restrictions down so we miss them for about three months last year And nobody wants to. I wanted to see my grandkid. So they the process i went through. I ended up because he couldn't get on a plane driving back and sleeping in the car. Eating the sandwiches. Karen had wave me goodbye. I took the car that we have an arizona and drove all the way back to oregon to Get back to get back to cedo grandkids and they'd get tested and then the corinthian period anyway. The cogan hasn't been fun for anybody. Everybody's got hit with it in one way or another and the same roles but for the most part. We've been fortunate. Yeah i'm gonna touch a little bit more on the farms impact from covert in. Just a second here but bringing into the kids. What is what would you say has been the favourite attraction. I know you got a lot of things. I've been able to take the tour of the farm year you got you got projects going on all over the place. What's been the favourite attraction of your kids. What's like the homerun attractive for the kids that come door of the season. What what's the whole ball here. Well you know ships around the home reno that my kids i built all these fancy structures you know the the number dr tree house in the catholic a western town near the tower of terror and mike. It's love playing in the nature of the forest. You know we have about five acre four to two hundred varieties of trees multiple big matured and they would build ford's to dig whole burrow into the ground. Have campout sleep paintbox so they. They liked the my kids love the forest. That was always their favorite people. What do you mean. They don't like all the stuff you. But they love on the four instances that that nature you know in and so i think a lot of kids come out to the western town. That probably the big hit now. I've got some new project reading on the corner. You know that you've been able to see. Thank you for making that journey out here from from new jersey and so the the log cabin is you now is a big focus point for me right now to little structure of one room cabin my favorite for me. It's always the latest project. I'm working on my favorite but we have some go mali's gasol pretty cool in quite a few other things. Yeah makes sense. A lockout looks tremendous. It's it was exciting. A chance to take a look at it the inside of their. I can't wait to see the finished product. And it'll be able to reference where i saw it at this stage. It is looking very close and you reminded what you say. Their kids playing in the forest. It's like on christmas. Be by these elaborate gifts in the end. The playing with the boxes at toy came. And that's always the biggest hit. And i know one of the focuses here too is on the future of the form so you obviously have a newly strongly ship with karen. You also have grandkids. Now that are getting their first taste of the farm here. So how does all of this play into your decision on what the future to fall. I'm to be well. Obviously you don't care and has been familiar with the farm of you. Know for many years have been bolted employees here and now her night dating she. She's got a heart for the farm. She loved her. She has wrong chicken coop out there and she loves interacted with jackson and the grandkids. You know that love the farm so I think karen would admit this revenue come a farm girl in a lotta ways and enjoy. The beauty of the farm on jobs. Loves our getaway time. When i'm not distracted with the project so she shoots game you know point when she says when you gonna retire when i'm not ready to retire yet. Come back to that but She them a little bit. I think she would like to see me. Not have as many responsibilities here. Maybe spend a little bit more time with her down in arizona But she is committed to the farm in whenever she very good about whatever youth would..

Jeremy and the youngest at he's he's a we come bodey bear because it looked like a little teddy bear. Well well one thing. I wanted to do here matt. I know last time we we touched on all your kids. I wanted to kind of take a deep dive here back into you. Start from the beginning of all this with your father. Wanted to kind of know a little bit about the relation. You and your dad so if you could. What was the relationship like with your dad. How kind of follow was he. When you were growing up very great relationship with my dad still do on. I don't see him as much. They live down in california kind of distant from now. You know life gets busy and you. You don't get a chance to keep up as much as you'd like but But my dad had big presence in my life growing up. He was always home every night and we had dinner together. Family prayed at the table together as a family. Every single night He worked very hard but he also had time for kids. We did things You know he was always building things. I think i've inherited some of my sort of construction passion from him. The carpenter at one point in a truck driver and You don't my dad. Let me with some of the best Word pictures parables not from the bible but also biblical principles but also just having a confident in myself. Knowing i could be interesting. I wanna be used to say you can be president if you wanna to be nothing Obviously instilled in me a sense of self worth and self respect. Then he was always like it when the going gets tough the tough get going with one of his common phrases Very inspirational father. Figure to me. If i had to pick one here no in my life it would be my father. Egypt was always talking about you know one of his other everywhere you go very are none other words. Accept yourself for who you are because you can't run away from yourself That's the way. I took that in everywhere. You go there you are. You know he'd say that fairly frequently on And that was a code word for you. Know like yourself and love yourself because That should become who you wanna love. Because that's Who you're stuck with if very well said and saying that wherever you are there you are is more to i. I hear like being present to a lot of times. It becomes with a lot of the data talk about work life balance and it becomes one of these things of becoming present where you are where. Sometimes we're at the job thinking about our family. Sometimes the family. We're thinking about the job so being where you are. Sometimes a little easier said than done off from time to time. Well how your experience and watching your dad become a grandfather. What type of grandfather was he to your kids mike. My dad had for a period of time actually lived here in oregon for a couple years and so they were always wanting to be involved in my in my in.

They've they talk a lot about how they're actually slowing down right now because they got so overwhelmed with all of it and reprioritising life. This is a really impressive couple I think we kind of have a similar kind of niece that we're in as far as what things we talk about honor podcasts and Youtube but I really respect these. We actually were able to join them on their podcast show called behind the scenes a couple of months ago, really enjoyed getting to know them and this was a great continuation of that Also recently, it is worth noting that they came out with a marriage journal, which is quote unquote the best the world's best communication tool for marriage, and it's designed to do once a week with your spouse and it's just a cool communication tool. For husband and wife to do together. Yes I think you guys are GonNa like this podcast. They have a lot of great insights and opinions and just tips and tricks for relationships. We even took away from and thought it would better our relationship before jump into it please subscribe this show and give it a rating on whatever platform you're listening, and let's jump into this one with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. Jeremy. Audrey thank you so much for joining us today. It's good to see your face again. What a pleasure thanks I know you guys are on vacation. So thanks for making the sacrifice. Never, really on vacation when we do a hard cast. And you're always kind of a vacation. Hardcastle those beautiful things you can do whatever. So yeah, it's pretty great weight. So didn't you guys just take a break from your podcast? We are yes, we are officially this is the first week technically that we are in break mud. So we're doing the summer off. Onto that decision. A lot you. Go. We've gone in the season. A lot of our listeners know we've been in this season of. Just starting to choose and focus on specific things and we love the podcast. But as you guys know, it takes a lot of energy man we needed to reserve as much energy as possible to make some other decisions in our life right now and we just figured. Let's say let's call the season. So we're not quitting or podcasts ending season four, four season and given it at least summer breaks of. I really respect that I have been. Really thinking especially during the corn teen were like at first we were like, oh, Gosh, we create all this content because people like need to optimism and positivity, and then I feel like about a month and a half into that we hit rock bottom show bottom. Tall. Wear. Like we got. With you. Yeah. It's it's tough and it takes a toll on. Like my mom whenever we have a podcast interview or we're about the content, it's like, oh my gosh, like we got to prepare and then like deduct prepare enough. Oh did I, miss this. Am I going to like It takes a lot of mental space does and So I. I. Respect that also in light of. I don't know how you feel about this if you've thought about this but like. Rachel and Dave Hollis that whole situation of of dim getting divorce and really total Shannon I. They were doing a lot of things that Sean and I wanted to do with the marriage conferences and and the books all about like having healthy relationships and what it's like working with your spouse and it really made me pause when when they hit their thing, it's okay. I never want to touch that. What can we do to protect that? So I respect your decision. Yeah. Thank you, guys. That did come as a bit of a shock and I personally Audran I felt. We felt this for a couple months now a or really maybe a year we've been like holy smokes we gotta start pumping the brakes and start evaluating. Four years ago we quit the family television. Show. In effort to do all this odd casting and online right books and encourage and inspire, and it's been nothing but on but it come at A. At a cost for sure as everything does. And so we're definitely evaluating right now and we shutdown always more which was a company that was based on Audrey. Life Mantra always believed the more that's within you from the three twenty and we shut we cancelled our book contract and. and. Lean back yeah. Back and slow down because it all it catches up really quickly and. And so easy to paint pictures online in with what we with what we do an often I want us as you just said stay so far away from that we want us today as true to ask as healthy as possible. Say Notice things was definitely a requirement for us right now I was Gonna ask what we were looking at the. The big news of you releasing Bursts Omitting the second manuscript book but Sean and I went through the phase of saying no, not too long ago and in my mind I was like I'm saying, no to these things are shutting the door to these things. So I can open more doors and I realized that's the wrong meant that like. I just gotTa say no and just there's something to. Be. Said about being content in half with. The Internet us. It just shows you everything. You're not every thing you could do everyone you should be everywhere you could go. It's just all of these name ships feelings in were being bombarded in the news wearing I mean that's a whole other element of the anxiety problem and it's like all day every day or consuming. A billion reasons of how we're less than. Yeah, it's really fascinating emotional problem. A lot of are used as we know is facing and we're facing ones that are like in it. You know it none of this is to say bag. We love what we do. It's awesome i. just feel like pacing ourselves worth thirty starting our family to kids we don't. Yeah. We don't take over the world by thirty five, and that's something like really embraced the last couple of months in midsummer decision. So. I mean, I don't want to linger on topic too long but I feel like we could dive into this very deep because Internet I've had a lot of conversations like this. Actually like when you're within like when you're in industry within entertainment or social media. Your job is to create so. Off Work and you're not on your computer and you turn your cell phones off at five o'clock you never turn work off you can't as soon as you turn it off, your career stops and it's such this over consuming career. We are constantly trying to think of what image you're portraying, what you're saying who you are when you go out to the grocery store because it goes with your brand and Andrew Nye have talked a lot about when it comes to a podcast. What do we want to divulge? What do we want to talk about? Because we're also putting ourselves on the line and were being vulnerable and it's almost like marital therapy but yet, there might still be open wounds like added. Now we hit rock bottom. But I do think I think it's a really complicated. It's complicated. You know time and career to be in like guy said, you're taking a step back to have perspective on the priorities. It's so easy to get lost that way. and. It's so easy to be like, Oh, I want to take over the world by thirty five. I, have to do more. We have to make more we have to create more we have to. What.

All these people keep meeting Lester Roloff. Who Do you really think Lester? Roloff is who do you think he works for? Why do all these people have? These chance encounters. There's always happens to be this one particular person that there's a great documentary. I can't remember the name of it that was on net flicks not too long ago and I can't remember the guy's name but he runs the Christian based part of the government where they have the national prayer breakfast every year and the guy had been doing it for you know decades upon decades decades and his name is brought up all the time but again blurring that line of Church and state that that money keeps rolling in from these televangelists in all of these organizations can that go directly into these politicians pocket. So again they can do whatever they want and the politicians allegedly can do whatever they want with these boys and girls and I have to let you use your own imagination. I unfortunately can't describe any of it but again you can go and look up the different people that have made the claims and hear them yourself word for word. These people are not lying. There are not making up these stories. This all occurred as spoken today by me and as retold in the stories from these kids that you can go and what these kids actually these adults now..

"I didn't get a chance to about your trip overseas to Iraq with the military because I was really fascinated by that story. What was the genesis of that trip? And what was the experience like view that drip actually? I made three trips to Iraq during a heated war Shortly after the main conflict and The three trips were changed my life forever the appreciation for the military guys on what they're doing over there and my pride for the US and then you know really try to help other people. The genesis of the trip was a friend of mine. The helicopter pilot over there Who has a little? Persian daughter was on patrol in in Baghdad. Draw family that had a dwarfism on three of the kids. I think it was a family of five. Three kids at all had very severe dwarfism so he called me from Baghdad from it basically said Hey. Can you come over? And and I'm like on the phone and you're calling from Iraq. You know bombs going on in the background. I'm like and you want me to come over. You know what he wanted me to His we gotta get these kids medical treatment showing that started a long process probably took six months to get orders from the State Department for me to be able to go over and I made my first trip over. Snuck around in Humvees and rats guys with machine guns everywhere and they stuck me to this families How we had contractor pulled out little portable x ray equipment doctor x rays and then once. I got the xrays live. Bring those back to the states and lineup doctors here so I got some doctors from the bay area. California back East and Wisconsin put the team of an anesthesiologist and so doctors that were willing to go over they. You know. The government's didn't want the kids to come to the states for their very complicated surgeries and instead they wanNA does to go over and train the Iraqi doctors so I got the doctors up in. May brought him over there and got the Iraqi doctors together and perform these operations and literally all these kids that have been hit by bombs and they're burnt and had various things You Know Barnes have been amputated but not correctly are doctors. Were able to do surgery for a couple of days on a whole bunch of kids. Not just the little people but a whole a whole bunch of kids in the little village that we're in and then them fascinating on my third trip over. I was able to pull the kids back silo able to get their papers. They need really complicated operations. That could only really done here in the states on the third trip to bring them back to the states and get them the medical treatments that they really needed so three very interesting. That's the short version of it But it was a harrowing scary clip and gave me immense immense rich back for Take all military over there. Bang Bang shoot 'em up now. They're over there really focused on training doctors and getting people You know the stand on their own two feet and have technology so that that that push for educational component and for building their communities with really impressive. Jamais wasn't about blowing up. It was really the missions that they pushed me of how we're really about Getting the community in that country to support themselves to take care of their own people. And that's what impressed me the most. Yeah that's incredible Matt. Yeah I have nothing but respect for our military. Bring a lot of veteran veteran. Dads come on the show here and it so That's awesome that you're able to go over there and make a difference and another thing that I've seen that you had done online you reach out. I know there was a story about the boy from Australia. That was being bullied. And I know you had reached out to him somewhere online. I seen it. You offer them out to the farm and stuff like that. Did you ever end up connecting with the kid I can? I can exit with his mother. She was very very excited because of course they watch the little people show little people big world show over there And so we've had exchanged several messages and I'm really just making sure that she has support That they know that they're welcome to come to the farm. I think at some point here. They're going to be coming over the United States. Go to Disneyland. WanNa make sure that they swing by and give the boy you know a real firsthand view of what little people can do and put your heart and mind to it Adult this farm here until I wanted to know. I've been through some of the exact same emotional feelings that he went through or he's going through that nine years old. I remember those feeling very precisely and You know I just want to encourage them so we haven't touched I hope we get to meet in person. I hope I can continue to encourage them along way. Because that would pretty heartbreaking to see him and you know some people think threw shade at a are some. You know at the mom for you. Know putting out that emotional Video but I really supporter. I think she's doing writing she without wit's end she's got your young nine year old boy who threatened suicide. She didn't know what else she could do. I don't think she knew that the video goes viral is dead but good for her to get that out there and be kind of kicking screaming and doing everything you can to advocate. She's had a long history of advocating for her son so I'm not only encouraging him but I really want to encourage her as well and don't going allow any mama shaming about The two sides of the truth. She's she's a tiger exciting for her son. And I appreciate that and I think He's going to do just fine. Even though there's so many different pitfalls of social media and the Internet age that we live in here I mean some of the good things are that people like you can connect with somebody like him just through something like that so There are some positive sides to it. Let let me rain this back into you as a dad here Matt Now. I have four kids. My youngest is my only girl. She's five years old now. I'm already dreading when she's going to be hit. That dating seeing your daughters all grown up. You've been there done that. What was it like for you when your daughter first started hitting that dating scene. How'd you handle that scary? You know my my daughter was an amazing. She's still edgy. That amazing individuals who straight out A student she was always focused on her studies Show we like to say that Molly was kind of the parent in the room. Most of Her life in when she was the youngest ever You know two or three years all just always the one that really had Iraq together so when she got to the dating world and went off to college in the star dates. You start dating a little bit later. but found the man she loved and Got Married and some got married and now she looks and works up. We're just waiting for grandkids. You know from her. Jaw Up there in They're up in the Spokane Area Washington. But Molly didn't require much worry. Let me tell you that. Because she was so solid and Any grant has a song called straight ahead and that was what the Wedding John. You know I played for Molly. Her Wedding Tamale with just always really straight ahead. So I'd like to take credit for how wonderful of persons that she came out but unfortunately I can't take credit. I think she just a you know. I guess genetically speaking maybe but Xu just an amazing person Right off the bat like as a whole my kids and so Maybe there's a little Maybe there's a little credit in. There's on more but I think my kids grew up on this farm and they were exposed to them you know. Both Ambien is exposed as many opportunities at fossil and they all turned out to be amazing. Kids Yeah Awesome Matt and you know I did see on instagram. There you guys had a family trip to Disney. What was that experience like for you to go there with all the kids at Disneyland is not for the fate of heart reality. Tv You know pretty hectic. We brought lots of lot You know Distant factor and stuff and kidd were a little young but Tori my daughter-in-law just Disney fanatic and so They were GONNA go regardless and took care. I said that will help. And so I had GRANDPA duty while everybody else went on the ride watching the little one. We had a two month old at the time but everybody came through it and had a great time. Jackson got to meet his hero. Buzz light year and It was just really a wonderful wonderful experience at a week away. down Disney. How you can help it have fun at Disneyland Ride. The the New Star Wars ride. It was a really really good experience and I was glad Tori pushed into with Donald. Mann wanted to take the to your role than in the two months ago. We kinda raised our eyebrows. A little bit shoot joy. Motherly that sometimes better than GRANDPA's instinct. So we went with. The ball had a great time. The kids had a great time. We've got pictures to prove it. Yeah I did enjoy seeing some of the pictures. You threw up there on instagram. What's next for you here? Madam and I know you said You you contract it for you know you have this season another season. Have you considered like you have any of goals for life beyond the show? Well I have a house in Arizona. I really really enjoy of this kind of balance. I'm creating in my life with Karen and I go down Arizona where you hang out with. Enjoy the sunshine down there but up here in Oregon on I. Am You know we're going to be doing a pumpkin seeds and again? That's you actually out the first officially not we're getting ready to announce that you know people always assume that we're GONNA do pumpkin season over and over again every year but we every year we have to a family really stand back and evaluate it and look at it and the cost and effort and kind of we meet as a family on my kids in the and amy we get together and we cut it up and down vote on and we just we just recently did a meeting where we're going to go ahead with the two thousand twenty pumpkin season so I will be here in Oregon a lot Getting Ready for that with my team of people here at the farm but my probably my most fun new products. I'm building a house so I'm in the design stages on WanNa break ground on it hopefully this year on a house. That's accessible for me Everybody probably wonder why in standing in Amy's House that you could moving And I want to build a different house to build a little bit. Smaller lead that for one of the kids. Hopefully we'll take it over once aiming finding Talk about moving out for a while. But she still has her things over there and social issues out.

"Alex. Listen it's an honor to have you back here. I know your family has grown. Since the last time you were on the show here you got the four kids but how many grandkids the up to now. I got four grandkids. I've been really busy with that. I I must admit I turn your show your podcast on all the time to get my own advice about what to do because being It's my grandkids. It just kind of exploded one minute. I didn't have any grandkids and two years later. I got four of them so I'm I'm leaning on. I'm leaning on all the advice that you find on your show. I really really enjoy hearing everybody's input and kind of angle on take on how to how to be a father via grandfather's I enjoy. Thank you for putting that out. Not Not and you know what speaking of advice one thing? I think that happens to a lot of happened to me. Like when you become a parent like you finally realize or get a better sense of what your parents went through bringing you up Have you gotten that kind of response for your kids or they come to you for advice now asking you for help? The tables have definitely turned out. I do feel like my relationship with my kids is stronger than ever before For a lot of those reasons But I I'm much better grandfather than I was a father. Just because you know you've been through it and you learn what works and what doesn't work in a job in a grandparent. I'm getting like getting a second chance that license so I'm really really a join it. I'm a lot better listener than I've ever been in my life. I believe because I just enjoy here in the grandkids talk and I enjoy my. Excuse me my kids talk about you. Know their struggles with the grandkids. I had dinner last night. Was Taurean Jackson. Lila GRANDPA's sat back and smiled the whole time while they You know try to really in all these kittens these kids and it's just a really fun a good at wonderful experience. Yeah very cool man. I know we got the new season. A little people big world coming up. You've been doing this for a very long time now. I know you've had some struggles with storylines and stuff like that along the way. How was it filming this new season? Have you made any changes or adjustments to the process at all? Well you're you're right. We've been doing this for a long time. Like fifteen fifteen or sixteen years. We've been feels like we've been filming for Forever and you know there's been ups and downs. There's no doubt about it. You know when you're doing something that long. Even though it's been the same company not say there's been different executives. We come regime after James Common. Gone and come in and they have different. Agenda are different goals for the company. You know they want their programming to be you know more edgier more this or or that's A. We've you know wrote ridden through a lot of different changes. And so sometimes they don't call us to. Hey we want a bigger bang or bigger pop on these episodes all you guys into the producers that are boots on the ground you know start asking you know dice dice your questions and But right now we have an amazing team of people And we Re really like an episode. That are coming on a really good. They're full of really juicy content but at the same time I think they're fair and they're on us. I I have a saying I tell when I have dinner with any of the TLC executives that are new and coming in. I always say with the Roloff family. A truth is greater than fiction. What I mean by that is if you just follow the real actual story of what's really happening going on. You don't need to make anything. So our favorite seasons have been the ones where they're just calling the the real life roelofs in what's happening and usually have the most success with the ratings and what happened. People are most interested in just the actual real life. You know follow of what's going on with the babies and Barrington and the farm and all that so that's my motto has proved a stranger than fiction and the role of household. Well I'll tell you what now you've had your tremendous success with it you got you got an audience. That's very been very engaged with the whole show and have any of your kids. Have any of them ever considered using this to maybe have a spin off? Maybe do a reality show of their own. You know I I yeah. I think that conversation has gone on and it goes on and it happens and we always kind of fall back on little people. Big World May Not you know our main vehicle for telling our story but I think store discussion devout spin offs and things are happening. but you know what little big world is kind of based on the whole family and the whole all the characters and one thing. I learned about reality television. Do you need a lot of characters? dynamics between character. And what have you to really drawing the biggest audience as possible so if you spin off and you just have to us you know. Usually the people people like I watched the show separately because Jackson. You know my grandson. Because I love amy or I love Chris you know and I wouldn't watch genesis. I think they just try to keep all the characters in the best we can. We've lost art pursue other opportunities. We're sad to see him go but on save always felt. There was enough to the court Character based on to kind of keep the show going it. Fenner successful is Everett. So we got a whole bunch of new episodes Coming out here shortly and we've been working hard on him for the last almost eight months. Yeah we've been really busy telling our stories giving everybody an update so Yeah we're looking forward to the the new season coming out and by the way we're we're contract for another season so we'll we'll be busy doing this for quite a while. Wow Yeah that's awesome matt. Now listen I know. It's been quite a while now since you're divorced. How have the kids kind of responded to the whole you know divorce and your relationship now with Karen are there any? Oh wedding bells in the future for you to whether there's no immediate wedding bells yet. But there are on aiming side in Chris L. Are you've got a wedding planning that they're doing for? I think three thousand twenty one karen and I are kind of waiting to let their excitement. Play out on man But no nobody built plan right yet. I hope one day that there are and the probably will be Very close we enjoy each other's company and Friendship Immensely And we're in a word from you know Dating and having fun together and live in our best lives as we like to say have a great time with the grandkids. Fortunately my kids seem to really accept Karen very very well that we spent a lot of time together. She's a great sort of circuit they call it cha-cha and The grandkids love applause spending time with her and she loves spending time. You know what I'm saying to Karen the other day. It's so nice that she loves Hanging out with my grandkids would be miserable. If she's like oh come. Do we have to have babysit duty again? We have to hang out with the kids again but nets quite the opposite. She really looked forward. sets up these encountered were were. She'll call German Audrey. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA come over play games at your house tonight. And and we're you know we're GONNA we're willing to take the kids tonight in while you guys go on a date night. So she's very very active in Not just accepting the kids the grandkids but really setting things up and getting me involved in Matt. You're putting your computer and phone away tonight. You're going to be playing games and reading to the grandkids tonight. That's what you're doing okay. That's what I'm doing. I appreciate the way she is involved yourself and gets me involved. Yeah that's good stuff. Matt now I did pick up a copy of your ex. Wife's book getting in preparation for today's interview I'm a big reader and I gotta be honest. It was a bit of a Chore. To get through for me but I did notice. She does quite a little bit of shade at you throughout the book if you get a chance to read the book and what was your response to that. I didn't get a chance to read the book and I was disappointed. I think probably not disappointed. Maybe not we thinking I stick the book which really fair to me. I thought that amy the book for me knowing her real life story and a lot of things in between I thought there was some disingenuous nature of to the book which means a pretty Genuine Person Typically issue but I think that that she left out some pretty major parts of her life That would have thrown a little more balancing into the whole story You know I think she did throw shade at me. I don't think it was really fair. and it was hurtful it was actually very hurtful and took me a wild kind of process it and absorb bitten. I wish you wouldn't have left out. You know parts. I would've changed people's perspective on our marriage and the reason that our marriage You know had troubles and saying so. What for her to leave out very very major important. Parts of her life That certain insect affecting me substantially and our marriage substantially I don't think that was fair to herself or to me or or two telling her story so That that part of the book and then you know. Of course you picked on me and I understand that you know the marriage fell apart. We've been the end. We grew apart. Emmys a wonderful person and You Know Race. Four wonderful amazing kids together so you know. I looked back at her marriage with a lot of success You know I I. I think that we're just trying right. Now enjoy the grandkids and the farm and and get along. Well I'll tell you what what one of the things here about social media age that we're in right now. Is that a lot of people. They're quick to judge everybody without all the facts. And like you're saying that there's more to the story here and I. I know that you you have been getting hammered here near on social media for some of this stuff into all that there is more to this story Have you ever considered maybe doing a book of your own and maybe shedding some light on? What actually did happen because the marriage to fall apart or is that just not style now a long soul-searching about that And run through in my head. Some of the things that stories that I know that some truth that I would like to be out there And that may happen one day. I don't I don't know I haven't ruled it out completely but you know after watching. Amy's book come out and Her perception the truth be so sort of misleading. I think that You know I just decided it's probably not gonNA happen for me. I tell the story through. The show is enough for me. Right now But I never say never I haven't ruled out Social media is is. You know it's hard. I think we've grown everybody in the Roth family has grown really thick skin were used. You know people being really Tough on US and and You know I think they call them trolls or whatever and they come up with the the draw these conclusions and you just want to scream and say if only you knew this or if only you knew that or you know. Sometimes it's a little bit of the editing can throw things off because you know when you think about the film show over eight months and now they're gonNA they're gonNA air that within eight weeks so there's a lot of compression you now. So let's say. Amy You know ms and I are arguing about something. We've been getting along for six months and then we have another argument. Will they throw those two arguments into one? Episode makes it look like we're always at each other's throats and it's not quite that way so You know the the just the nature of television You know put out of different impression and then people speak up on the Internet and we appreciate all of our fans. I mean we love. We love the people that are interactive Interactive does but we also Realize some people they just get it wrong. Sometimes the way you've handled it is definitely a true testament to your character because You know I I know that you have been mistreated a little bit online with all of this but I want to switch gears here Matt because I wanted to ask you last time you were here. I didn't get a chance to about your overseas to Iraq with the military. I was really fascinated by that story. What was the genesis of that trip? And what was the experience like you?.

This Woman Went From Hollywood Startlet to Start-Up Queeno

"Business rockstars. I'm Alex Worley for by Sarah, Michelle Gellar and brag Fleischmann they are the co founders of food stores. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having the children's. So for those who are not familiar if you could explain what food stores. Is a clean comforted company. We started out with baking mixes that you can purchase it anywhere in the country at physical retail or online. And then we also offer a subscription based kit offering that you can get once a month in your house. Huge dessert lover. So love that. It's a little less guilt or a little more guilt free. Very cool. I'm so the next question for you is what would you say is your definition of being an entrepreneur? What does it ultimately take? It takes everything that you have. And then some more I thought that I knew it working hard was until I joined the start up world, and you realize it's harder than having newborn twins that it is full-time nature. Attention your brain doesn't shut off. But it's also the most incredibly rewarding when you actually realize you can hit those milestones. Yeah. Absolutely. I'm curious. How has Hollywood prepared you for this difficult world of startups. It's interesting there are some aspects of it where I think that Hollywood definitely has help in preparing. And I think that mainly has to come with the amount of knows that we got the rejection, I look at most people in their lives, and you graduate college and you look for a job, and maybe you don't get a few. And then you settle in a job. And then maybe five or six years later you switch. But for me, it's constant it's additioning processes such a constant and very personal rejection. That happens so often on a large scale that it makes it a little bit easier in terms of leading the nose in the business world Roloff you a little bit and make you tougher as opposed to really feeling it as a personal rejection. I always said that we know we have a great idea. And we know we're going to kill it. And we'll find the right people, and this one just wasn't it as opposed to really internalizing that. Yeah. There are a lot of mistakes and many failures that happen and entrepreneurship, and I can't imagine being an actress that would prepare you for that. You know, a common fear is of failure. For entrepreneurs you ever deal with that we have a very specific definition and for us fail is just the first attempt and learning it just the first time, we tried something. If that one didn't work, it's only a failure. If we don't learn from it and improve upon what we initially set out to do. And you can't be fearful of failure and run business. If you are. Your perspective about what failure really is. And that's what Sarah Michelle talks about. Yeah. So you guys have been at it for a couple years. Now, if you could go back to those first few months, what advice would you give your early entrepreneurial self goodness. Well, I think the big one would be stamina. So you're going to be putting in long hours, and there's gonna be some sacrifice along the way. So if you go back and talk to yourself you would prepare. They weren't even harder. Well, you'd say, hey, look, there's going to be days like this where you want to quit. And after if you knew that that was coming then you would prepare better for it. And that could be all the things that you would do to decompress. Then that could be exercising hanging out with family, traveling to find those things that will get you through that difficult moments in being an entrepreneur. And if you're prepared for that which most ninety percent of first time entrepreneurs are not and makes it so much easier, and so much more joyful. To be challenging Sascha, which is at all are ultimately doing to really utilize the community to look for people that are facing the same struggles or have experienced the same struggles. And learn and grow from that. And and propel each other up. It's a team sport. Yeah. If you could create a startup toolkit, what would be inside of it. It could be more tangible technology could be intangible like a characteristic of personality trait that you need. So what would be inside my God? But that would be our next startup. We can't tell you that unless you send the not answer that question. Capsule. Okay. The big one is if the for not doing tangible be you gotta be visionary. You got to be strategic got to be creative. You've gotta be relentless. You have to have situational awareness and self awareness. But that in the box, and then you have to have that stamina to be able to work eighty hours a week. I think also stellar interpersonal skills seem to always be a prerequisite for successful entrepreneurs that we ought to communicate sell your idea. Get people to come over to your side do Steph when they don't want to to help you out. And and I think also nice comfortable shoes. How
