a whole panoply of plants and animals that have adapted to live up there elitists coming up with a new idea and all the old stodgy scientists say you're crazy that's actually what happened to biologists Leonid Carney back in the early eighties when she first a member of the Latin scrabble club that's Geeky even for NPR I'm an NPR suggested studying the treetop canopy of the rainforest it's just leaves up there they said at the academy Professor Nadkarni ended up founding well it was like that scientists are supposed to discover the unknown and I am a scientist I'm really assigned I'm a Geek I mean in high school I was and now the game where we ask smart people dumb questions it's called not my job you know the old cliche about the brilliant you got it right you earn two point for Roy Union for telling the Truth and you've won a prize the voice of your choice on your voicemail thank you so much thank you the husband he is he's also a biologist and he studies aunt yes he does actually we met because I studied the canopy he was andy three year history of the Detroit half all right so you had from Roy Blunt it's good for him your last story of someone on the run comes from Peter Gross look if you had one shot from NPR WBZ Chicago this is wait wait don't tell me the NPR News Quiz Utah W. here in your ear Adler we're both graduate students he came to my field site and he said to me in this just such a charming quiet voice he said you know I really want to know if their ants in the Canon do you think I look like several God Katie Tanglewood so you're bald I know that you're V and so I had to teach him how to climb the fell in love and when he proposed he said he would name an ant after me did he he did it took him aw news school of biology she joins us now now leaning at Kearney welcome to wait wait don't tell thank you very Mac the new what was your reaction to that I said that I'm already married. NPR nerdy were studying science fine but how did you get interested in the tree canopy so when we ascend into the canopy we really have access to a completely different vacations of animals that you can't make on the forest floor for example sometimes if you sit up there very quietly you see this white form coming towards your side and when you were the first scientist to actually go up did you find like all these unique animals going damage she found actually what I did what does happen sometimes is that you really make it yes I have to ask about Treetop Barbie yes which is something that you invented yes so tell me about that to one of the people who was involved in it on my raped by had to say in years but he did what is the aunt the aunt name is PROCR- pastas Malini oh a name lenient itself easily species the way the way I do and we know that little many little girls treasure Barbie for whatever reason and so we thought perhaps getting treetop Barbie making a Barbie that that has the clothes that I wear in the in the canopy and in the field of the helmet little crossbow little booklet that that L. I grew up climbing trees as I said in suburban Maryland and my students and I began thinking how can we inspire young girls to climb trees into treasure well he does it yes he calls it an elegant canopy aunt it's slim it's Nimble and occurs in the canopy so that is it'd be scientists in an aunt scientists could meet with tragic fall but no that didn't have and it was the other way you went out there anything in particular about the ant Malini species I wish that he was like I you know I know there's no aunts up there I was hitting on you I just wanted to climb a tree that's term I assume that the only way treetops eh somebody stopping somebody about on because that's what it is is a nice sort of Good Samaritan that angle there well to bring you the real story we spoke his way bruce what Ross Bo- we have to get the ropes up there somehow so you invented a Barbie that was dressed as a tree top scientist they were not interested for some reason I couldn't understand that so we just decided in our lab we can make them ourselves we bought used barbies from goodwill we head volunteer seamstresses on and we did try ground support Ken but that turned out not to be a big seller run my husband hates ground support yes and what did the Mattel company have to say about this well I did call them I offered them the idea I thought it would be just fabulous Mattel to have it sold and toys R. US and so forth and make the little clothing there were some challenges like the big hair wouldn't fit under the little helmets rob and her high heel feet boots wouldn't stay this is N._p._R. Z. Kidney toasts I'm thinking a thinking a hotdog nutty fritters that sounds like that's wrong the language is weird here's your next question taste in canopies change over time which of these was a real appetizer you might have been offered at a swanky I I think I'll say see I really meant to say see they misled you it was eh does but in French that became the word four couch and somebody thought a piece of toast with some spread on it looked like a couch so canape they say that while holding your crossbow the amazing thing is just last year I got a call from national geographic take it well the lenient Nadkarni we've invited you here to play a game we're calling joining us open the trees for Canapes Hey I have this little barbie she looks like me about thirty years ago sure but but ah French cook so legendarily awful people could only eat one bite of his food be it comes from the Greek word for Mosquito Party in the one thousand nine hundred sixties is it a hot dog nutty fritters be pruned nuggets supreme for of journalists who might be interested in knowing that Mattel is not interested in having a a brown woman encourage young girls to go into science and discovery and they have partnered with Mattel and they have now produced five explorer barbies which is fabulous is one of them something right if you want to throw a big summer party by the pool back in the day again you might have served which of these delicious hot weather canapes a a single cold uh or see the original pronunciation is can ape as in Kenan AP more have their Hurley in Washington DC all right here's your first question the origin of the word Canape is surprising what is it a it's named after Claude can it's a very bizarre ready here we go yeah.

Best of Not My Job

"Support for this podcast and the following message come from internet essentials from Comcast, connecting more than six million low income people to low cost, high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more now they're ready for anything. From NPR and WBZ Chicago, this is wait. Wait, don't tell me the NPR news quiz. I'm a pile of thinly sliced beef covered in velva. That's right. I'm your Billy cheese steak. Bill. Curtis said, here's your host the chase, Tori in Chicago, Peter Sega bell. Thanks, everybody. It is the time of year when the world is in transition, the earth is moving from summer to winter when we put away our white shirts and breezy, halter tops, and put on our quarter, ripe pants and wool, halter tops, these days, my diet is one hundred percent beef stew in hot cocoa as we adjust to the new colder reality. We wanna play for you. Some of our favorite moments from our old reality starting with our conversation with astronaut, Scott Kelly. I been, I been meeting reading your new book about your life and your mission up. They're called endurance, and it's fascinating. One of the things that amazed me is that in your description of the space station, it sounds a little grimier than I imagined it would be. You know, we, we see science fiction movies. Everything's clean and white, and it didn't seem that way in space. Yeah, you know, it's it's a functional. It's own working and living space, and there's a lot of equipment up there. Anyplace that people live, I think it's a little rhyming. Yeah, I guess so, except you talked about like how things are floating around in the compartment and sometimes you think they might be like a spare bit of candy that got away from the last meal. But you have to be careful because there are also mice own boards. Yeah, yeah. You always wanna make sure there's an am in m. on anything. You see. Read it out loud, I and I was also interested. I assumed that you're unsecured on space. You were one hundreds of miles above the earth that you'd be cut off, but it seemed like you had internet Email. You had cable, you watch CNN all day. We have CNN on while we are working. We weren't linked just watching TV all day. No, the astronauts don't do that. The president does that the astronauts have the job, and there was one. There was one story that you told that I couldn't get over is that you talk about one movie night. You had early on your mission and you watch the movie gravity. So so this is a movie, Sandra Bullock movie about a horrible disaster that takes place in space in orbit, and you're watching the movie in space in orbit. And what were you thinking as you were watching this man? You know, it's, it's kinda like a little bit like watching a movie of your house burning down all your inside of this. Whose idea was that. I think it was mine. Okay, Scott, you, you have an identical twin brother and you're both astronauts which I find so intriguing. So whose idea was it? I think we, we, we decided to apply independently of one another, but he actually applied the selection before we both got picked. So I guess it was his idea if there's he was he was on the ground because if I remember correctly, the point of Yubing up there for so long was because you're identical twins, same DNA they could then see how your you had physically change at the end of your time compared to your identical twin on earth. And so he sent you some odd things. If I remember. Mike gorilla suit. Yeah, I was thinking. Yeah, I'm be straightforward. I was thinking if the gorilla suit. Why did your brother send you a gorilla suit in orbit? Why not a girl. Well, there's never been a gorilla in space. I guess. Three now, I guess. That's true. And once you had the gorilla suit in space, what did you do with it? Well, you know, certainly, I had some fun. You know the purpose behind this. It's not just the Gook around, you know, me being a kid growing up that had ADD or ADHD and not being able to pay attention puffiness an astronaut. When I go to school, there's always that kid in the back that we even asked her. I'm talking about space, can't get, you know, engaged with that kid. Yeah. So you put a video of a guy in gorilla suit in space? No one could not look at that. That's true. It's got. Have you ever run into one of these crazy people at says, the earth is flat and nobody seen it and say, excuse me, I have, yeah. Yeah, you know, I had some of my events. They actually have flatter protesters what. Coming out. I love it besides the fact that you know science explains why the earth is round you. Those kind of people just don't believe in that. And that's either you believe what what you want, but at the end was truly flat, wouldn't be hedge, be like a really cool place visit like the best. That's a really, I don't know the, I feel the house there I look over my bedroom would be hanging over the edge. Even the things you've done. I have no doubt that would be the case. The cat's just pushing things off the end. I know because you say that the thing that everybody ask you about is the toilet up there and I and I was going to stay away from it. But then in your book, I found out something amazing which is this weird barter system you have with the Russians in which you would give them, I guess, extra energy or from that you generated from the solar panels and they would give you their urine. Part of it. Yeah, we turn it into water. Then we drink it. I guess you take their urine, you change into the water, you drink it. It turns back in the urine. All just seems so pointless. When you think about it. And I know you're thinking that guy drank his whole is p for a whole year, right? I wasn't thinking drank everyone. Everyone's peak. I was going to ask you, could you tell whose it was. Oh, but it does taste better than the water in Florida. Commander, Scott, Kelly, we're honored to talk to you, but we've invited you here to play a game today. We're calling international space station, meet international house of pancakes. The lawn before the ISS was launched. Another institution showed us what we get when we cooperate across nations, namely five different kinds of artificially flavored syrup. We're an ask you three questions about the pancake chain get to right, and you win our prize. One of our listeners short stack of voices on their voicemail. Are you ready to fly? I am ready. All right. Bill, who is commander Kelly playing for cavern Nixon of Indianapolis, Indiana are. Here is your first question I hop seemingly so harmless has been involved in lawsuits such as which vis a I hop the PSF they sued the French NGO pancakes. Sounds frontier for diluting their brand. Be I hop versus apple. They sued the computer giant saying, the name ipad sounded too much like I hop or see I hop versus I hop. They sued the international house of prayer for using their acronym while preparing people for the rapture. I would say, hey, you say they sued the French non-governmental organisation, pancakes, send frontiers. Which presumably would bring pancakes to needy people in war zones. My area of expertise. All right. Yeah. Let me see y'all. I think. The international house of prayer. It's confusing because both I hops are considered symbols of the end times. All right. Next question. I got in trouble for a marketing tactic in two thousand fifteen. You probably missed it. You're in space. What was it? A TV ad with actress, KENDALL Jenner preventing a riot by giving a Rudy tutti fresh and fruity breakfast to a policeman. Be a tweet which said there pancakes or quote flat, but they've got a nice personality or see an attempted viral campaign where they covered sidewalks and pancake syrup and told people to quote slowdown and come on into I hop. I'll go with beat. You're an engineer and you figured it out. That's right. Yes. People thought that that was not as funny. Not so funny. Not so funny. So they took it down. All right. Last question when the first I hop opened in New York City's east village a few years ago, neighbors rose up in protest why they felt a quote, Swedish pancakes. We're an offensive cultural appropriation be. They didn't like a sign out front that said, New Jersey taste without new Jerseyans. Or c. it stank of bacon, twenty four, seven. That's interesting. You know, no offense. I mean I like bacon, but I'm gonna go with the bacon smell. That's right. From a man who drank his own pee. Well, he was also man. If you read his book who was stuck up there, smelling things a lot close space. Bill how to commander, Scott Kelly, doing our very impressively Scott. You were studying up there weren't you? You got them. All right, congratulations. You've reached the pinnacle of flight you. Everything you could fly. You flown from the space shuttle to now the international space station. What's next for you? Going to fly the international house of pancakes. Scott Kelly's new book is insurance year in space, a lifetime of discovery, Scott, Kelly. Thank you so much for joining us from where they've been. Even in times of change, it's important to celebrate things that stay the same, like dumb politicians, Roxanne congressman MO Brooks of Alabama's a proud member of the house science space and technology committee. This week, he argued that instead of global warming sea levels might be rising because of what. All those icebergs falling into the water making. You're actually close not icebergs frocks just rock rock on. The committee for the committee for science. The Republican congressman pointed out when you put stuff in containers of water, the water level goes up. If it's June is backed up. Why wouldn't be true in the ocean? Tell me that Mr. smart guy technically, right? Yeah, but but the it makes sense. Like how volcanic eruptions in Hawaii right now could have been caused because the earth, it's bad. Chilly, you know. The climate scientists who was testifying at that moment was not persuaded by the congressman's arguments, saying quote, and pretty sure that on human time scales, those are miniscule effects. While thinking, quote, what a moron. When we come back Austin goolsbee makes tariffs sound exciting. And we relive a bluff game that struck close to home.

Like this bluff, the listener game from earlier this year, Helen, Hong was our guest host that week with panelists, Paula Poundstone Adam Felber and the Hari kondabolu right now it's time for the wait. Wait, don't tell me bluff, the listener game called one eight. Wait, wait to play our game on air. Hi, you're wait. Wait, don't tell me. Hi there. How are you? My name is Kelly in calling from took Sperry Massachusetts. She said, this isn't too, too, was insolvent from Tewksbury AKU actually, she and her brother lived at the took Sperry state hospital. They were orphaned, a comedy show. All right, Kelly. I don't think we need to go. People couldn't see. Yes. You had a flower shop. It's nice to have you with us Kelly. You're going to play our game in which you must try to tell truth from fiction. What are we talking about today? Bill, I forgot my toothbrush. We've offer gotten things about traveling. Why on two trips in a row, traveling with this very show, Peter Sega, l- accidentally brought to left running shoes. That's not a setup to a joke or anything. It's just a true fact which using to expose while he's on vacation this week. We read about someone leaving something surprising behind guests. The panelist who's telling the truth and you'll win our prize. The wait, wait voice of your choice on your voicemail. Are you ready to play in ready? Awesome. First step, it's Paula Poundstone. The annual fake you for your service parade presented by Disneyland in partnership with the USO for service members in their family at Camp, Pendleton in San Diego's quite a production. There are a dozen incomparable floats and an exquisite sound system. This here. Whatever someone who's head must still be rolling. Forgot the Mickey Mouse costume thinking quickly, parade, director Rini Masirah instructed veteran cast member. Paul Matlock to perform at scheduled the voice of parade grand marshal Mickey Mouse as if he were there, but in hiding. Welcome servicemembers. Parade, Mickey's voice booms to confused. Crowds, prayed watchers down main street and Camp Pendleton this year. Even many look confused despite having facial features that are set in and movable, broad smile. He kinda freaked my kids out complained Cormon John Senate, I mean, say stuff like, don't bother looking for me. You won't see me. Listen, I want you to see me. We like Mickey can see. Of did see parade missing. It's Mickey from Paula Poundstone. Your next story of someone forgetting something comes from Adam. Felber could have an anyone. You take a cool trip without your gopro to record your experience for steady and you discover you've left your memory card at home. Okay. Now imagine it's worse because you are in the middle of a once in a lifetime spacewalk at the international space station when you realize what's happened. Okay. And now imagine you're colossal cock-up. It's streaming live to all the denizens of the earth below you. Well, if you're a certain American astronaut last week, you don't have to imagine anymore. In fact, the ensuing dialogue, we all got to listen to between the astronaut and mission control sounded a lot like your grandmother getting computer customer service from Michigan drove let me read you an actual sample. Hey, Houston, I gotta ask you a question about the gopro real quick over. Go ahead over. Okay, I'm pushing the button and getting a no SDN card. That means. Do I need that to record. If it's recording, they're supposed to be a red light on. This is Houston. I'm told that if the card is in it should have a red light if it's recording and Houston, if it says no SD, what does that mean over. We think it means no card over. Okay. That last line wasn't broadcast, but the other stuff did happen on the bright side. Thanks to this foul up the seven point, five billion down below. Never had to say cheese and then try it all over again because that one guy blinked. And astronaut forgetting his memory park from Adam Felber your last story of someone leaving with less than they thought comes from hurry kondabolu, a mother in suburban. Chicago breeds huge side relief this week as she was reunited with her eight year old son, Kevin, who was axed left at home alone as the family went on vacation to Paris. Apparently, no one had noticed the boy was missing on their drive to the airport and through airport security. While boarding the plane. I don't think this would true. I thought it somewhere. Only once when they were inflicted the mother sense that a cherished family member may not have been present. She then shrieked Kevin. Cute rush home where she along with police found the boy unharmed physically though he may deal with abandonment issues for years to come. In addition to the void. The police also found two career criminals. Appear to have suffered great Bodley ten. Attempting to rob the house. Woodmen had been shot in the groin with the BB gun and had his hands of yearly burned by doorknob. The other man had a nail and pieces of glass, Christmas ornaments lodged in his foot. Both men also miraculously survived being hit in the head with a paint can that was apparently swung from a rope at high speeds. Something which would normally crush a human skull. Child protective services. Child protective services say they will not remove the child from the family since they believe it to be only a one time occurrence. And certainly that's something that could happen again the next year. Kelly. You've got Harvey story about a family in Chicago that left their set at home. Adam story about an astronaut and policy story about a missing Mickey Mouse, which one is real? Well, I think I would have to go with the astronaut the astronaut, which is Adams story. Yeah, it's ridiculous. To find out the correct answer. Take a listen to this. Rupert, of course, gopro. Do I need three four. Astronaut drew you still asking Houston about the SD card needed to record with his camera. Congratulations. Kelly. You've got it right. Earn two point for the new one prize the voice of your choice on your voicemail Bank you for playing with us today. Thank you. There's been a lot of talk about trade wars this year, like the rest of you. Whenever we hear the word tariff, we just smile politely and secretly swallow the cyanide pill hidden under are false dude, but economists, Austin goolsbee has the power to make tariffs thrilling as he did back at March k.. You're the chief of the council of economic advisers for President Obama until about two thousand eleven. Is that right? Yeah, that's right it since since we now know there isn't one anymore for President Trump, what can you tell us about what is not any longer being done? Well, I have a friend who was on the council of economic advisers, longtime ago. And when I took the job, he said the job of the counts of economic advisers, like a good gardener is ten percent planting seeds and ninety percent pulling weeds. Right? And so the fear always as the condoms leave, nobody likes them. Nobody wants to talk to them, but they prevent some of the dumbest things from happening. And so the the fear would be more dumb things get through. Right. So given the job of the chief, the council of economic advisers to keep done things from happening, how do you think Eric cone did? Well. Well. The fact that it's seems that the president announced the policy at the end of a press conference and his own staff did not know that he was going to announce it suggests that maybe Mr. Cohn was not having the impact that he wanted to. Although I'm told sometimes the way to get the president to do something to tell them not to do it, so maybe should try to reverse psychology. I'm very subtle what you'd have to say. You know it, Obama would do put tariffs. That I know. I know economics is difficult and sometimes abstruse and even a little dull. But can you explain to us. Are these tariffs are good idea. I'll tell you why they're terrible idea. But to do that, I will give you a small story about my answering who lived in a house with my uncle Bob in Lubbock, Texas. There's a disagreement in the family, what it was that my entry into cooked, but it ended up stuff down the sink where clogged drain. Okay. And my uncle, Bob went to the store and got a product which has since been banned, which was called the Bob and the bomb was a combination of a plunger and a firearm. Okay. It had a cartridge it. It's days every combination. And you fired it in and it would blow with an explosive device genital to projectile. And you put the pressure in there and you blow it out? Yeah, and it said on the outside use only one charge. Okay. Okay. Myong-chol Bob is not the type to use only one more than one is available, so he fired the entire thing I entered. This is the most interested in economics. I have ever been. Bring it back. This is great key cleared out the clog of the drain. Yes, the lasagna, what? Whatever it was and they lived in what in Chicago, we will call converted. It was a house had a wall down the middle. There were two identical apartments and the drains not just go straight out. They connected in a little why. So every time he blew the bomb into the drain it did it go down the drain, the sewage is blue to the neighbor. The next morning that person comes over big Bong, Bob, was there some kind of terrible plumbing cadastre that can happen it and they go. He said, I'd like to show you my apartment and the ceiling, the kick it is by AS train is lasagna blown out there and that is exactly what's wrong. We tear. Steal drain, but when you blow it out of this deal drain right onto the auto industry, Boeing. All over the ceiling. That's what's wrong with this. It ends up destroying thousands more manufacturing jobs than you're saving in the one where you're done. That is so great. And I have this this deep conviction that if only you had been there to explain it to Donald Trump. He would have understood. So anyway, that was great. That was great. Now do bitcoin. Either. Well, Austin goes be as a pleasure to see you back here. Again, we've asked you though this time to play a game. We're calling served from the left clear from the right since you study actual economics. We're going to ask you about home economics. Tragically, there is no noble prize should be two questions, right? You wanna price for one of our listeners and a homemade handwoven potholder for yourself. Bill who was Austin goolsbee playing for Michael, ROY of San Diego, California. Okay. Here's your first question according to the nineteen fifty four home textbook experiences in homemaking. What must you always do when preparing a meal, a wash your eggs before using them be make sure your husband is served the cut of meat closest to the loin. Or c. arrange the accompanying vegetables in the shape of a smile. Wait, so hey, was wash your eggs? Yeah, there's before you track them. Huge controversy about refrigerating whether you should refrigerate your eggs and you're supposed to refrigerate eggs in the United States because they've been watched and there's some protective something around a nature that you really aren't. I'm gonna guess, aches. You're right. It's the egg. Have you ever seen word egg comes from filth, so you to them. All right. Next question home. IC classes at Cornell University were pretty different before nineteen sixty nine before that the college regularly did what a give actual babies to the students to use his quote practice children. They taught everyone that serving family style from one big platter was communist or see they. They made students spent five minutes and two hundred seventy five degree room. So they could quote feel what a pot roast felt. Two hundred, seven wait. But all three of those south crazy. The Cornell hospital not in Ithaca New York, so maybe couldn't be. When you were working at the White House. Did President Obama ever shout at you for God's sake Austin just say some. I mean there factors that could feed into this decision. Okay. I'm gonna guess the baby's. You're right. It was the. Don't worry if you mess it up. It's a rental. All right. Last question home economics classes we discovered act were from what widespread and they have produced some notable alumni, including which of these a Martha Stewart who received Barnard colleges I ever grade double a. in a special home economics major be Michael Jordan. Well, known around these parts who took home economics, high school in case he didn't make enough money to go out to eat when he grew up. See Ozzy Osbourne who created a recipe in his homemade class for back allocate. I'm going to have to go with his air nece himself. You're to Jordan? Yeah, yes. It was Michael Jordan. Jordan. He apparently he said to an interview once that he took home back to learn to cook because he worried his ears were so big. He'd never find a wife. Oh. Austin goals, we doing our quiz. He did great. I'm always impressed when somebody gets three out of three. Well. Of course, the former senior economic advisor to President Obama. He's now at the university of Chicago. Austin goes me. Thank you so much for coming. Today. When we come back actor behind Carmelo soprano makes us an offer. We can't refuse even though that wasn't the movie.

Wait, don't tell me the NPR news quiz. I'm Bill Curtis, and here's your host at the chase Bank auditorium in Chicago painter, Sehgal q. bell. As we move into the colder months of the year, we're giving you a chance to warm yourselves in the heat of our favorite recycled clips of the past hour is a lend fill piled high with slowly decaying Limerick seven pump back in April award-winning actor eighty Falco join us, which gave us the chance to ask someone what it's like to be on a hit show. He joined us in April along with Helen, Hong MAs job, Ron and Morocco. Thanks. Sopranos was really like in my memory anyway. The first really cult TV show of the modern era that everybody watched. Yeah, I guess so. I mean, I certainly don't know what time, but in retrospect. Yeah. Kind of a thing. It was the first show. I remember that everybody had to get together on Monday to talk about what had happened for it was pretty great, but like a lot of actors you had a struggling period right at the start right plea for years and years of it. Yeah, I'm gonna to reach for. I don't know a gazillion years by rent telephones that various offices and dressed up like cookie, monster at a wedding. Just hold on. Hold them back a little bit. All right, no way I hope you may. You were you were a cookie monster or the cookie monster, very one, very cookie, monster at a wedding. How would that Brian to get people onto the dance floor. Oh, my. Fully heated. I love the also imagining the cookie, monster officiating one from. Cookie, monster for an adult wedding where they depend on acid. Disappoint was far from your first job, but it was, let's say it was your first prominent job. I I have to ask, how did you get the job? A plane Carmelo soprano the wife to Tony the mob. Like any other and you know, popped in, I knew I wouldn't be cast because I was at a American woman which I happen to be, but I guess I never really thought I looked very much like that. And so there was a certain ease that came during the audition and and I got home and they called me that night that I had gotten a thing. That's when you read the script for that. I f Assode guy walks into a psychiatrist's office. Yeah. Did you think? Well, this is going to be an enormous cultural phenomenon little changed television for decades to come. Oh my God, you're beta. So one of the things that we knew and we actually back in the day interviewed some of the actors in the show. One of the things that everybody would hear about is that every actor in the sopranos was terrified that some day David chase or the other producers would say, come here, we gotta talk to you and they'd let you know that you were gonna get wacked or your character. They didn't actually kill any actors as far as. One of the guys got killed, and I will not say all of a sudden after that episode, they started getting all these letters from pan saying, oh, why did you kill off someone's above? Which seems sort of unusual. And after a period of time, it was all traits back to the actor. Still got a hand it to him. Got it. Had to try. He tried credit. So you went right from the sopranos and you did this. I don't know if it's right from the sopranos, but soon after the sopranos you did this new show on Showtime called nurse, Jackie, which is about nurse who had among other things, drug problem and very nice other problems. Have you ever like wanted to just play a normal nice person. So much. Luckily, I don't spend a lot of time wondering why that rarely comes my way. Oh, here's an. I'm saying troubled morally questionable person get Falco. I know who can do that. No, I'm really am remarkably like regular stable person. So I'm not quite sure how this whole thing happened. You should do a musical. What. If you want something lighter in, lighten up your image also yet. Yeah. Honestly, I would love to do a music like Maria play Maria in the sound of music. How about how about a musical version of the sopranos? How about anti maim, but as Carmella. Oh my God. Anti main, but as cookie, monster. Well, easy alco. We've invited to here to play a game. We're calling woke up this boning got myself and aria. So yes, you saw this coming start on the sopranos as we have discussed. So naturally, we thought we'd ask you about tenors. Makes perfect sense to it of these multiple choice questions, right? You wanna prize for one of our listeners, the voice of anyone. They like on our show on their voicemail Bill, who is eighty Falco playing for Alan Finney of Melbourne, Australia. Wow. Oh, my goodness. All right. Here we go. First question, the tenor Jose career is demonstrated that he was destined to be an opera singer early on in life. How a when he sang happy birthday to five year olds party all the other children, wept and the party was cancelled be. He sang so much at home as family got sick of it and made him sing in the bathroom where they locked him in or see the sound he made when he got his first flu shot, reportedly made the doctor give up medicine and become a poet. The answer speak. The answer in fact is, of course be always singing family got sick of it, locked him in the bathroom. Kucic must have been excellent because of course to a legendary career. All right. Next question, the great tenor. Robert white says the greatest high notes, his career as it were happened in a surprising way, which of these a of bug flew in his mouth and write down his throat, possibly loosening up. So he could reach the note being he accidentally set right on the fat ladies Viking helmet and let the highest note he'd ever had or seeing. He heard a car alarm going off in the opera houses parking lot that was inspired to out sing. It. I think it c- using it see the car alarm. It was actually a bug threw down his out. Why says it somehow loosened up his throat that he's able to hit his finest? I know. Oh, my no. I know. All right. This is fine though. You have one more chance. Here we go, though he died in two thousand seven that Yano Pavarotti the greatest tenor of all time saying will live on thanks to his music and also thanks to which of these scientific discoveries a the pepperoni effect in which animals exposed to his voice experience increased libido. Be the pepper. He's syndrome a psychological condition which sixty year old men think they can pass for twenty five year old romantic leads. Or c. the pepperoni gene found in fruit flies which causes their cells to become ebony. Normally fact. Si si. Yeah, you're right. It see. ED. Well, two to three is a win ED in our book. But as you would say on the sopranos it looks like three to me. Puggle that out eating. Yeah. We're gonna figure out what that means. Adulation. 's eighty Falco her new movie is outside in its fitters now and available for streaming almost anywhere that things stream eighty Falco. Thank you so much for joining us. Wait, wait. One.

Ohio governor John casick distinguished himself and the 2016 Republican primary debates with his candor, his fearlessness and for being located so far to the side of the state, you could barely see him on TV, but governor casing took centers stage when he joined us in Ohio in a. Pro along with pita Roxanne Robertson, ROY, blunt, junior. You started. We are told you started quite early Rivera interested in politics, the young man, right? Well, I went to a high of state and I lived in a dormitory hate it. Fifteen roommates at fifteen roommates and some things upset me. So I asked for meeting with the president university and finally they let me in. So I went into see him and he said, what's on your mind? I told him, and then I looked at me said, sir. I've been in school a couple of weeks and I'm on the sided, but looking around at your nice carpeting, your your furniture and everything. Maybe this is the job for me what. Did you. So he told me about his fundraising responsibilities as academic responsibilities. And he said the next day he was gonna fly down and have a meeting with president, Nixon, right? This is nineteen seventy, and I said, we'll serve. There's a number of things that I would like to talk to him about also. Could I go with you. Said, no. And I said, if I write a letter, would you give it to the president? And he said, sure. So I wrote this letter and told him how he thought he was doing and I John casick PS if you want to discuss this further, let me know. I've got time. So I got a letter back from the office of the White House. The president, I opened it up. I went upstairs to my dorm room called home. My mother answered the phone. I said, mom, I'm gonna need a airline tickets. President. I states would like to have a meeting with me in the Oval Office, and my mother started shouting Honey, pick up the phone. Something's wrong with Johnny. Two story, so I flew down. Yeah, get outside the Oval Office and a guy walks up to me says young man, you're gonna have five minutes alone with the president nited states. I'm eighteen years old first quarter. Freshman sound pretty cool folks. Let me tell you what I'm thinking new jacket, new shirt, new new pants. I didn't come for five lousy minute. So they opened up the door and I, I went hit. I saw the president shook hands. The good news is I spent twenty minutes in the Oval Office as a first quarter freshman with the president states. The bad news is I spent eighteen years in congress. And if you add up all the time I spent in the Oval Office, I peeked out. So far? I. What did you talk to president Richard Nixon about you? An eighteen year old things? Well, I mean foreign policy. You know, simple things you realize if we wanted to, we could look up the tape and find out. You know that. That button they ought to have or Facebook, which is delete all my information ready done that at the Nixon live. When you were in congress, of course you made your Mark as a budget guy, and you played into significant role in the balanced budgets of the Clinton very significant. I have to ask about this because I know. 'cause you told me that one of the things that you zeroed out back in your budget cutting days was money for public broadcasting. Well, I did because wait a minute. Thanks Peter about. Here's the thing of all the arts and public broadcasting. All that was critical at that time. I thought I'm for it. In fact, I contributed to it, but should the public money go into it now since. Elected president will double the budget. Only joke. I which joke joke about when you're president. Oh. I got one thing. We gotta do this because we worked for news organization, the New York Times story about all the time you're spending in New Hampshire and they pointed the fish. Well. Coastal star, and it's described you the man who is, and I quote the New York Times, the man who is not not running for president. So I'm going to ask you in front of our audience here and abroad. Are you not not not running for president or are you not not running? Pres-? It'll depend on what they think. What they think. No. Now, you know what Peter, this is maybe a little crazy, but I don't know what I'm going to be doing. I have about nine months. This is the most important thing for me to finish strong because people remember you how you finish, not how you start at right now. You go. That'll ride on it win. It's going to be. I know why you're doing it. I realize it just came to me and my political analysis because you wanna go up against Donald Trump again because last time you didn't get a nickname. Right. I'm sure he felt a little bad. There was not for a second. Eight is a real genuine delight to talk to you, but that's not what we asked you your. We asked you play a game, okay, we're calling, but wait, there's more you are governor casick. So we naturally thought we'd ask you about k. tell, which is the company that invented the infomercial, and also those compilation albums used to see advertised on TV you know, twenty five polka hits. Do you remember the Ohio. Khanate. So answer two questions correctly about k. tell you what our price, one of our listeners, the voice of anyone they may like from our show on their voicemail Bill, who was the governor of Ohio playing for gave maker of Columbus, Ohio. Okay. Here is your first question k tell was founded by Canadian salesman named Phil kiva who learned his trade hawking wears a boardwalk. But before that he had another job, what was it a a Royal Mountie be trapping weasels or c team cook. And he was Canadian remember well. He wasn't in politics, so he wasn't trapping weasel snow. Did you say there's wasn't today? Isn't that where I wanna head? So he was a Canadian guy. He was a salesman before that with the Royal mount Royal Mountie. No, actually he trapped weasels thing. Go trapped gophers been. Weasels are funnier. Next question which of these was a real Kato. Compilation album was at a twenty four dumb ditties be thirty eight two explosions or see Seventy-six trombone IRS. You think, hey, you think, okay. I'll go, hey, yes, it was. That is exhibited. I run my case. Hey, everybody sit around and praise. You run your cabinet. All right. Last question for all the kitchen is KTEL albums contributed to the history of American pop music, at least one significant way. What was it a the desk at which Michael Jackson sat down to write beat. It had leg balanced on six stacked KTEL records. Very interesting. Be Dave Grohl of Nevada, Madame fighters, you met him. He says it was a k. tell record that inspired his musical career or see the CB in digital music was invented by a computer scientist who is upset that his vinyl copies of Kato, summer cruise in record kept wearing.
