"So i knew i want about. When did you know when you're in the edit and you're like talking about music and you're like you in your already knew the notes that he wanted to play. yeah weirdly. yeah yeah no. I mean i could exactly imagine what that would feel like personal write. Music is so personal it so we have a head for it. You just sort of like kind of already. It's easier to play sometimes to describe the like especially lets. You have like a very specific music vocabulary. Oh i wanna do a diminish blah blah blah so feel good as a show about a lot of things in one of those things is comedy And this is a comedy. Podcast won't talk a little bit. A lot of tv shows and movies in which characters are standups. There's been a lot of standard about santa. What did you wanna convey about your perspective on. Stand up well. I wanted to show my deep love for the world of comedy and i hope i gave like a balanced depiction of both. How grounded not roll this for my character and it's kind of an arena that i'm going to say i mean these days from now on that they can be very confident in and they have real friendships and and i wanted to show that and then i also didn't wanna shy away from showing that it can also be an arena of threat and danger and then also i guess It as the characters learning more about themselves and getting more comfortable with themselves that i guess that is mirrored in their in their comedy life. That the the more personal and their material is the more it resonates and they they start to do better. And then kind of lose control of that watson as the agent Takes control of it. I think the agent especially you see you do interesting thing of would. I don't think there's a thing that happens a lot when there's comedy. Tv show. Which is like a breakthrough when they start being personal onstage. And then everyone applauds them and they become rich and famous from being personal onstage. But what your show does. It's like you get you get some personal satisfaction from being personal onstage and fans and stuff but then the industry wants to exploit that which is not a thing that i've seen which is like this person seemingly wanna do like. Oh you had everything that traumatic about you. They're like please bring that up. That's what hot right now. Yeah that's different. That is really different. Yeah thanks. I think i'm so self conscious of about about that about monitoring personal trauma and like you can easily start to feel gross. And but yeah. I mean i. I'm happy and proud to do it. But but in my own way you know and so. I wanted those my way of showing that aware that it can be you know it can be weird and it gets a bit meta there but i think the key thing is having personal control over the minute. Somebody else wants to commodified. That can become a really unsafe way to to deal with something you you know you. Unearth something in an unsafe place. And that's no good as the show captures comedy is for you sort of intertwined with the drug abuse and sort of traumatic stuff and i know this is a very sort of a posted a net question but have you been able to sort of detangle it as you keep on doing comedy of like not throwing out you know comedy has adjacency to things that are complicated in your life. Have you been able to sort of like ways to maintain a relationship to comedy where the comedy parts still not only representing of sort of all this other complicated parts. Definitely i think yeah about fifteen years ago my teens. It was all tied up with with stuff. And i shouldn't have been in that environment. Probably but yeah i think when in my early twenties i luckily found that i still really loved it and moving to england was helpful having a serve. Fresh start and clean break from you know one. Click in one scene. Not that the non amazing but it was a fresh start. I guess and yet i'm still such a huge comedy fan and i never want to stop doing it. I love it and also. There's going to be apples in every industry. We know that that's true and it is just you know because comedy happens at night embarrassed. It's just slightly more dangerous but yeah in in dope you talk about You know it's about sort of the things you are addicted to throughout your life and so it starts with bette midler right if i remember correctly and then and then goes to comedy and you talk about how you wanna see second city one hundred sixty times saying he also talk. Show the same sketches one hundred and sixty nights in one year. That's most nights of any other talk. This the story of the first time you did stand up in the comedian brought you on stage and pretend you're eventual kissed at pretended your control dummy and you talk about the feeling of laughter. You get as my eleventh birthday. I got dressed up to the nines. Green tartan trousers suede waistcoats. Like finally grown into the waistcoat bowtie. There's a photograph of us heading out for the night. Kill night on the town with my mom and we sat in the front row. I remember this night so vividly. Because i think it was a really impactful night for me. Every comedian that came on stage was referencing the fact that there was a child in the front row right as i would if there was a kid in a waistcoat in the front road is like good evening. I'd be like what the fuck is happening. They're making jokes all night. I'm getting sweet attention. I'm having the time of my life and finally the headliner gets up. And he's like everything. I want him to be guy in a suit gray hair with a beer and he comes up and he goes. You know what. I'm not even going to do my material. Let's just get this kid up on stage. I was like yes. Everything is as it should be. Yes thank you for recognising my potential sir so pumped so ready for it and he had a stool and he goes. Okay you sit on this stool and you're going to be my ventriloquist's dummy so keep in mind. I looked exactly like a ventriloquist's dummy. Just bowl cut. Bow tie waistcoat code an incredibly stiff and he said when i squeeze the back of your neck. I'm gonna make you say stops. Open your mouth when i squeeze your neck so very quickly. It becomes apparent that he thinks i'm a little boy. Of course he does. So he's making me say filthy stuff. I remember i had to say. I like pamela anderson tits. Everyone's laughing my mum's weirdly loving it in the front row and finally we get to the end and he goes. Are you been a great sport. Kid is is there anything that you want to say to everyone. And he hands me the mike and all i could think to say in the moment was i'm a girl that got a huge response from the audience. 'cause it was like a plot twists.

"In in dope you preface that show by being like just you know process all this. This is all in the past and the second season of feel good part of the arc you know is about things that you haven't processed like it's a bat like oh the all this stuff haven't haven't really thought about it and you mentioned there's sort of a traumatic relationship you have with an older man when you're in a teenager and you allude to it in interviews you allude to it in dope you've mentioned like you can you. Can you tell me how you decided to do that. Storyline and specifically you know what were you hoping to get out of it personally and also what you hoped. The audience would get out of it. Well i hope that what was more interesting to a story about for instance sexual assault or something was looking at how much personal responsibility we we should take for the ripple effects that that trauma has in our lives and how we let it inform our present and affect our relationships and things so that felt like a way that i could write about it in assertive self critical way as well. You know not not have it. Be to kind of poor million ish. So yeah but definitely i think season two is that stuff that i'm figuring out more in real time with the character then sees season one active drug use and stuff is stuff. That's pretty far in. The posture million feels a lot more process than some of the stuff in season two. But i guess. I thought if i wait until the stuff is you know i'll be fifty so or never so. I think it's okay to be to be honest about the fact that i'm still working through that all that stuff and yeah i think people can relate to that connect to it. I hope yeah and it is interesting. 'cause i think from consuming interviews with you over the time of like different that it did feel like things that characters would say to. You were things that have felt like. You heard you wrote it. Like i brought up that scene but it's somewhere like sometimes i feel like this is that in georgia's like i think that means you're non binary and i felt like you were writing to yourself towed. Hey this is. this is what you think. You're just like afraid. just sort of feel like it. Seems like a pain to bring it up at this point. Yeah well george definitely is a useful mouthpiece for my inner monologue got myself and stuff. Yeah definitely even when georgia's like you know. This stuff happened fifteen years ago like that. It's definitely something that i say to myself. You know for better or worse in my head. So yeah yeah that's interesting. I wonder if i listened back to interviews. Because i'm quite like open and insurance on my opinions do change. I think and i probably do say things that other other characters than say to me it is. I mean it's a it's a fascinating thing to watch season one before like i just watch it. I knew i've seen her comedy than watch it and then season to watching wall listening to you and you're like oh it's like kind of same person and it's like this two thousand sixteen and that is a different person sort of with different relationship and also the vocabulary has changed in these three years and you can ask being like. Oh i guess that makes sense to me. Yeah it's weird even gender wise talking about the character. So i'm like i guess i'm i'm now saying i'm non binary but the character in season one was not there yet so yeah yeah it's it's bad. Get because i feel like you refer to the characters that she sometimes sometimes not like the other day. This interviewer was speaking. Yeah i just. I kept fucking on my own pronouns. Basically and the interviewer was really on point. But i i'm comfortable with she or they so it's yeah it's fine insane. I haven't spoken to my parents about this stuff you know. I have home to canada since before season. One came out so a lot of the things in the shower things. I haven't said to my close friends and family. And i had a chance to sit down and talk about everything with with my friends and family. So yeah i think that as creative people like would you prefer like why made this show. I worked really hard in this show. That really captures. How i feel if i if everyone just watch this show. It'd be easier than having a conversation or do you feel like you wish you can have the conversation before they watch the show where you're like. Oh i guess this. Is everything about art kid. Yeah that's interesting. I i think both i think with my parents. I am totally happy. Not not to have any conversations because we we understand each other. It's i definitely think they know better from watching the show but they also know that it's not one hundred percent me and then and but with friends and stuff. Yeah it's a combination of being watched the show and then also i think there are. Things people are surprised. Why haven't you asked me about that. If you've watched the you know. And i think people waiting for them to be like that character. We can have that conversation. Yeah what's up. Like i mean i definitely think people are are really uncomfortable. Talking about Yeah assault and stuff still and and yeah. i do. Sometimes wish people were a little braver about being like. Hey what was all that about. You know what. I mean i. It's like i want to do a follow up of like we're talking right before the show comes out so it's like yes in like two weeks. We'll i guess we'll get a sense of if you're going to get like a flood of emails of people being like oh i didn't get it. That's so true. Yeah i wonder. I would put money on not happening. People are awkward. I think people will be like. Yeah like the soundtrack. I'm really into the soundtrack though i should say oh it's great i'm trying to there's one third i mentor. I should have wrote down. I feel like the only the only song drop ever members jealous guy. Yeah i was so glad that we got that. That was a case of being like. Did we spend half our music budget on this song. I think we should 'cause i i love that song. Yeah and then. There's a phoebe birger song at the end. I think as well well-placed and also there's a ton of music from a canadian band called half moon run. They're my favorite band. And i'm like a teenager about them. Come superfan and they collaborated with me on the second season and they sent some unreleased stuff and i'd send them cuts episodes and they were able to yeah. It was great. And we have an amazing composer as well charles watson and rob jones and i play piano and guitar. Yeah yeah. I'm a control freak. I did a little bit of. I'm not very good. I did you know what he wanted to sound like. You're like oh sound like do. Yeah that's just use that. Yeah exactly. it's a little piano riff under the end of the confrontation with scott in the last episode. And it sounds like from close encounters of the third kind that dude it..

"She said she was going to beat me to death with her. Oskar something like that. Like as susan serandon just really dark dark stuff. That i how am. I expected to not laugh at that size. How much did it change from what you wrote through. I know you guys were hearst a lot and then also edits and like how much was genuine the structure on on paper. And then you just sort of like okay. Well this you have to just this. You'll say something a susan serandon. We'll figure out which one where was the how much there as it was on paper. Except i think there's one line that is improvised from charlotte. I can't remember which one but yeah we definitely when we came to the we had a million options of susan. Sarandon type lines Yeah the whole thing was just kind of ridiculous because also the scene ends with them us. Hearing are flatmate having sex. Fill this kind of animalistic way and having an orgasm. But he wasn't there to fill not day. It was joe standing my co greater by the camera. Making these sex noises. The whole thing was just like every element was there to make me not able to get through without laughing. What did what does fills character represent in that scene at sort of you have this one sort of these energies. And then sorta phil comes in. What did you feel. that represents. I think he's just he's so free and unfettered and living his life and and effortless. There was another there was an idea that got caught. Where is a an episode where my character is really struggling with gender dysphoric and things like that We played with ideas of phil just wearing dress really comfortably and not commenting on it. Like i think he's just so comfortable with himself that character. Yeah yeah yeah. Why susan serandon. I mean even be out yes. It needed white. There's people susan sarandon as the present herself but people there other people there are also people onto themselves and that was the person that you chose. What what does she represent to know. Or even like i know other way of putting it which is at some point. You're like susan serandon. Yes so but that means that in your mind you already have a relationship to the idea of susan sarandon that is why in manifested when the moment came to. Yeah which so y susan serandon. Okay i guess. She represents a dominant feminine energy. I remember seeing. I saw rocky horror picture. Show very young so she was always quite drawn to her and then as she got older. It's just She's like a fine wine. Her voice seems to get deeper and deeper and she just doesn't give a shit and she. yeah she just. I don't know. I find incredibly sexy. And also i've been in la with charlotte and joe and other friends. We all happen to be there at the same time. And i think i'd heard charlotte do this accent a joke and this deep american accent and so i knew she could do that and so there was an element of writing something that i knew i would find funny to see charlotte to. I think that's especially in the second season that comes up a lot. Just it's so such a gift to be writing for someone that you now to be able to sort of them into doing insane things the other cup. You mentioned pop culture references. The other one is to the musical chicago. Oh yeah that made martin into character thing or may martin and the person is. Is that both hit cut. Yeah yeah i think i hope people relate chicago the first of all. I went recently to see chicago before lockdown. I saw it in london with cuba. Gooding junior was in it. It was rough actually but the those dancing women are so talented and they must just rehearse so much. And i guess it's because they seem like a whole other species to me like it's so far from anything i could do totally an audit. I feel the same about drag queens about midler. I'm like wow the way. You're moving your hips at incredible and yeah just that song. He had it coming. I mean come on. it's hot there is something about the scene. Which is there are two people who are literally having sex and you're like trying to imagine sex related things there where you're like literally having sex and you're like well. They need to talk about things that are sex related to bring me into this space where we are actually having sex. Yeah which is bizarre. I guess i think that's i kind of like it. Makes it feel like they have this. They're so comfortable with each other and their deep into their domestic relationship. When you're comfortable enough with someone to go okay. I'm gonna pretend you're someone else to pretend someone else. And i think the part life is when you then be like your fantasy is your parents. Her parents coming over for dinner. Yeah yeah. I mean that comes recorded and tragic place. I guess i remember when i was in that relationship with someone who wasn't out and we had all the same friends. And yeah my fantasies were so mundane and mild because it was like. Oh you'll buy me a drink in front of someone or like maybe we'll and we live together so i think that sort of comes from that there's a slow dancing scene in season where they slow dance and i remember being at a party wants to loose such a fantasy which is kind of crazy. It obviously shouldn't they do. I want to talk about you. Know we talk a little bit about tone but tone them partly because it felt like after the first season people would be like. This show is like a sexy show with lots of sex in it and even sometimes the trailers for the show like there's like warm glow and it's you watch and it's like truly no difference from girls or fleabag or love or any show about young people dating but obviously the you know the difference is like this is not what many people have seen on tv. So they're like oh. This is a lot of this thing did you. How did you balance and how careful where you'd be like. Oh if we make it to salacious than people think. We're saying this remake too awkward may were implying all queer. Sex is like it's a. It's a specific line but also i think it's hard thing to do while also trying to like be true to yourself as an artist. How did you think about that. How did you sort of figure out exactly where it needed to be..

"Well. Initially i think the sort of notes from the commissioners particularly in the uk there was people. Were excited about the comedy aspect of it and the standup world and joe and i were pretty adamant that we didn't want that to be the focus and and just because it's been done so well before and we felt like that was well trodden territory and also i yeah. I'm just not sure that people have an appetite right now to to watch stuff about the comedy behind the scenes in a comedy club so we we really wanted it not just be about one character with a bunch of stooges around them but a really rich fleshed out world with three dimensional characters who all have their own their own world. We kept talking about the tone that we wanted them to have. Well earned really emotional. Got punches in it and then and then always undercut them where we could with ridiculous stuff and then the central character knew that we wanted the addiction and the threat of relapse to feel really omnipresent and we kind of started there. Yeah love story and with this added threat of of relapse. Which i i you know something i think about a lot so yeah. Did you ever think like oh. We can name or may carton or like any. Yeah like maybe like oh maybe work an advertising or four like maybe the addict. Maybe you know there's so many little things you can do like. Yeah there's it's like you look at any of the appetite versions of this right. They started from the real story and then like camille keeps his name. But emily's names changed or oh. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah we had all those conversations make harden would have been good. I think initially we. Yeah we. I'm joe and i have not really had any other jobs so we we felt like it would be really apparent that we were writing off from our experience. If we wrote that she was yeah advertising or something and then yeah just the more we wrote the the more. we thought. It's pretty obvious that this is me so to change. The name just felt dishonest and kind of just leaned leaned into it. There's definitely stuff. That's off limits or stuff. That's exaggerated and i'd i'm definitely different. That character but yeah in moten models are different. I think unless manic. I think i'm i'm hopefully more self-aware because i don't think you could write that character without being like that character couldn't write that character you know. Is there so on on self-aware and Yeah and it was a good sort of therapeutic exercise to write the points of view of someone who's dating me and my parents to kind of imagine how how stressful Writing like anything sort of mysterious process to what is writing. Look like for for y'all we yeah. I don't know how other people do but we just sat in a room. I think that the thing that was different was. We spent way more time on the outline than we did on the scripts with the dialogue. Little bits of it was was coming up as we wrote the outline but we wanted to really meticulously detailed outline with down chunks of dialogue or turning points within scenes and jokes and then we delineate the who would write what and then email we sit in the same room and email each other back and forth and then write drafts them. So by the end you can forget who's written what they've gone so many times and we read it out loud a lot so that we hear the rhythms of it and we do all the voices and so by the time we came to cast it. We've been we've been acting it out like a like a play so much and we'd we'd sort of performance wise developed characters like joe. There's a character called maginnis. Who's my sponsor. And she's this kind of anarchic. British woman and joe was giving incredible performances as this character for months so when we came to cast it. We knew exactly i'd energy. Yeah so the susan serandon sex scene where it just couldn't avoid alliteration one bringing up. Where does that start into much truth colonels or whatever what is the truth of and also just this sort of idea of the scene start well okay first of all. It was one of about four or five states that i had written already when we started. I'd written the breakup seen dritan. The susan serandon seeing britain a standup set in episode. Five and things like that. I had on my computer. So i i really was so attached to the scene and fought so hard for it to be as long as it is and i think it's partly because i'd never seen i mean it makes me laugh. The the character Can only come when they're being told not to come. And i think people can relate to that. And i rarely see it like that kind of slightly dommie energy of someone telling you not to anyway so i found that funny also i. I see a lot of queer sex scenes that are very tender and beautiful and my sex life is always that tender. You know it's it's kind of you know sexist funny and it's weird and and i liked that georgia's so horny and i don't think you get to see girls being horny and weird enough. I like how specific it is. Also i've seen a lot of stories. Where for instance. Someone that's previously been straight then starts dating someone of the same sex or not the opposite sex and then it's like explosive fireworks. I've rarely seen people struggling to come out. And i've i've seen a lot of things about men struggling to come but not so much when you also has like the rhythm of a sketch like like nichols and may sketch where it's like. They've two different objectives and like they're there it's like a miscommunication email. Both people are hypothetically listening to each other yes Which is why even the more serious moment are played for laughs because it follows the sort of certain rhythm. Yeah you have a background in sketch you feel like that. Came out in there definitely. There's a few scenes out in the series like the the ghost train seen with me and lisa. Kudrow there's a big argument and a ghost train. And i like sat pieces like that. This felt like a bit of a set piece. And yeah maybe that sketch structure is somewhere in my in my bones yet. Also charlotte ritchie. Just i think i have very fond memories of it because it was far enough along in the shoot that we were really comfortable with each other and she was being so funny and she was improvising. Lot and saying things is susan serandon in my ear and i just could not keep it together and i think we're going to release the bloopers actually soon and the bloopers from the scene are my favorite because you can really sense that the crew is getting really frustrated. Push for time. No one's finding it funny anymore but she keeps saying things. I'm not expecting like.

Same year that this came out. It has a very cop rock field. But what is what are your reactions to this the intro. I could not tell you what it was about. If you pay me any amount of money it so abstract i guess and never mind the cheesiness. that's i expect that it's one thousand nine hundred ninety experimental. Things are a little bit weird. I was just saying that. Like i guess seinfeld came and say yeah television at that point but i could not tell. It seemed like a place. Where maybe there's food and abc live.

But time comes for us all even the most legendary drag queens and that doesn't always have to be a scary thing. One of our favorite movies is the witches of Eastwick, which pits three icons, shares, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle pfeiffer against the devil himself as they turned to witchcraft to manage the midlife crisis today San Francisco drag. IMPRESARIO, peaches, Christ chats with us about opening up her vaults of drag parodies for an incident viewing party of her show. The witches of East Bay where Peaches Coco Peru and Chad michaels take a look at what happens when three drag legends get older and a world dominated by pesky drag Queens plus why do J. K. Rowling and other high profile celebrities come out against trans. Inclusion eighties gay icons that became TV commercials, spokespersons and look at the amazing life of Drag Queen Hegi leg. I'm Fausto for no I'm Mark Zalin and this is feast. Five. Before we begin. Let's listen to the trailer for a peaches crisis the witches of East Spe starring Coca, Peru Chad Michaels and Thomas Dekker. You know when you're young queen and you don't understand anything everything's really confusing. CONTOURING and Tucking. You think that when you grow up and become a seasoned queen, that's GonNa make sense and. Still waiting for that day. That day ever come I've discovered that when you're truly fully relaxed, you can open your eyes and see what the world has in store for you. For me, my eyes are most open after I've enjoyed a hot steaming cup of celestial seasonings tension Tamer to. What do you? It's a short life isn't it? We all have fears. Sometimes I i. look in the Mirror and I see everything disintegrating faster and faster. A long career in drag is not for the week. Just burned my mouth. So fucking badly you know life may be short for some. But even if there's like a nuclear Holocaust, I plan on sticking around and partying with the cockroaches not really afraid of death that doesn't mean I don't have fears. You know what I see see snakes like hundreds of them and they're like crawling all over me and then disappear I'm just not there anymore it's really trippy. I don't mind the growing old or that it's a short lifer, the snakes or any of that the the pain that scares me I don't know why there needs to be so much pain in the world often caused by anonymous trolls commenting on social media. Deal the deck. Down here we just. Play the sandwiches. Hello. Hi. Peaches. Christ. Yes it is. What's Your scariest movie? Nights scariest. Say, what's your favorite scary movie. Well that's a nightmare on ELM street. One. I had a really scary movie. It's called the Selfie on my phone. On my God and I take my clothes off and I look into it. And I see myself growing old OH. Oh I used to be an atheist, but then I realized I was a sex God. But now on a sex card decline and nobody wants to worship at my temple. Because I've been stuck at home during covert quarantine. No one loves me anymore, not even myself. How are you doing today peaches? I I was doing fine a moment ago. I. Just I don't even know what was. Not sure. Well, we're kind of like thinking about you you have. Your opening your your default. Clearing the COBWEBS and showing the audiences, what they are throughout the world with really want is some of your productions that you've done over the years you during the witches of East Bay which. You know play on the witches of Eastwick, which kind of deals with. Women of a certain age and how they feel. That that's what you doing. Accuser. So used to hear that all the time this leg. I thought that you were just like you know any the the average gay guy going through his. You know mid life crisis. Interesting thing right. 'cause we live in a consumer society and we sort of been making money or being taught or whatever to not embrace aging and to look at the aging palace as something to be feared. Sometimes. Abhorred emphasis on the. When. You're eighteen. They'll tell you when you're over twenty six nobody wants you then you need S. Over thirty nobody wants you then your early thirties forties death if you're gay and then this comes you know the goal and then you get those ages and you're just like I'm just as fierce as I was back then. Yeah I mean in some in some ways. I would argue that maybe you're fiercer. I think that well, culturally right it's it's not in every culture. Is there sort of this idea of growing old being a bad thing, but it's definitely an American idea for sure or Western young and then I think if you are queer especially a gay man, you know we we adopted so many of the worst parts of. Misogyny. And so we apply that to each other and then I i. Yeah. I think for a lot of queer men sadly. It's a real thing. It's a real problem. Well, it even like in talking about intergenerational relationships or even like you know if you are somebody who is above the age of thirty and you're at a bar and you start flirting with somebody, you know this is the thing is like a lot of these twenty year old tw- inks are hit me on the hookup APPs but out in public, there are like there goes all thousand. And I met you were sending me or Dick Pic last week are you talking to your little secrets? We go out in public. Worrying a mask. Anymore. I'm really loving the mask culture because finally. People to see my face and they can. Say. They just don't even see it. Well, it's like it's like a facelift in sunway tooth kissing goodbye nobody knew. What you're doing you're you're giving into those those ideas of you know this negative ideas about aging. This is about like you know for years we've heard Middle Eastern women. I really like hiding my face and feels very comfortable. People are after. Them they not to stare at me Yes yes. Yes. We're the mask sunglasses like ray bans with mirrors on them and sometimes even a little bike helmet or a hat. So I'm basically just a robot out perfect on everybody just staring at you know staring at anything I want without repercussions about like when you're like totally like staring at a guy is like in you're wearing the mask he can't see when you like licking your lips underneath the mash. Literally drooling once in a while might might mask. The wetness comes through but. Like little, otherwise they how do they know and this is a this is good for straight men to know this like when you're not when you're a straight guy and you think you're too cool for the mask, all of us gaze wearing masks we're just. Per serving on you so hard. With that information. Jim and I see this guy and I'm just like Oh my God he's so bad. He's just like. A moment your way and I'm just like, yes. In the way my heart. Yeah it's true. You're right. You're right. That we should we should probably get back to the which is. How generous of you? To open the show with such such an amazing plug for this upcoming online screening that we're doing, and it's true that that show in a way was about I mean I talked to cocoa and chat about the fact that we were. Older Queens and that that's what the show was going to be about. So you're right. That is what the show is about. It's about is this all there is kind of thing but he ever since I've known Coco Cocos characters been this cool hip tell it like it is. You know Aunty in the Bronx who's like doesn't Old Lady for thirty years and this is why we called got dress up in drag I. think at least for me when I was in my early twenties, it was like, Hey, you can be whoever you want to be for the rest of your life as long as you can get a shake and go wig like Coca Peru and. They'll make it. How did you get cocoa to like actually change wigs because you know she's wearing Like she has. A demented Jan Brady. I guess I get you. We this was the first show. We've ever done together and we had been. In some comedy shows together doing drag Queens of comedy and she passing Lee said like, why haven't you ever asked me to be in one of your shows and I was like Well I mean you never I I I just can't imagine

I'm dead soon. You coming down to do it? Blackbird opens in theaters and on demand Tomorrow and star Susan Sarandon and director Roger Michell joined me now and for both of you. One thing that immediately came to mind for me watching this film is that aside from why they're gathering, this kind of gathering of family is a lot less possible because of this pandemic. Well, I think a lot of families have bean sort of glued together by the lock down. This is a film where rather like, you know, over the Christmas period or the Thanksgiving period when the family's all forced to be Start together for two or three days. All kinds of exciting and old things happen. Susan. I agree with Roger. I've heard more instances of people for better or worse, picking up their mother, the gram parents and I think what the film is also about how we don't know our parents and we don't know our Children as well as we think we do, and some some incident like what happens in the film. Gives us the opportunity or exactly Bates, the circumstance where suddenly we realized we don't know the way we thought we didn't on covert, I think has given that opportunity to rediscover. Your Children are your parents, Although I hear a lot of instances where people aren't driving each other crazy, you know that revelations aren't always easy to take. Yeah, It's definitely a mix of both for sure. This topic is one with so many layers about the choices individuals have in their mortality. How loved ones grapple with that mortality? The dynamics of family trauma. And then suicide. Roger. Why do you want to take on this topic? The subjects of euthanasia is not one that's being was particularly high on my list of, you know fascinating issues before taking on this film. I think it is a It is a difficult debate. I think euthanasia in Greek euthanasia means good death on I think it's our to come out of watching this particular example. Off euthanasia without thinking that it's a glorious death. She's made the right choice and her family have made the right choice and that Lily has done something full of joy and full of life.

Bayern, PSG Set for UCL Final Clash
"We'll start though in the champions they it's the final will wanted PSG will take on by Munich. Be Leon by three goals. So now hey, it's a disgust, the Game Alley Moreno Frank Leboeuf and Craig Burley crank. This was buying far from their swashbuckling best but they got the job done. But you've gotta you know Leon. Shown the the the main street. One of the mainstream is making it difficult for fully opposition. Something really gusty overlooking aid to improve on next year F-. where, they're going to finish league on. But that's what the stall out particularly in as competition the on the counter-attack, the super organized, the aggressive and so I think. Never expected it to be this crazy open game. That Barcelona fine with. So. In that respect, it was understandable but also Leon as you know follows it was no they created chances in the game and and after finishing had been clinical. More interesting. I thought it was professional from bio Munich brought some big boys on from the bench as well. But yeah, they deserve and Leon I'm sure front will agree on. From from a Frenchman can hold the head high for what they've done in this competition. Right. Yeah I'm not disappointed by the result because we all were expecting that to buy in, will win and go and go to the final, but we can be able to be frustrated as a French fans said. About the fact that yacht some chances I think there are more and more chances to school than they had against Manchester. City where they scored three goals but before that magnificent goal from Niagara. I think he. Took A. Big Chance. Said hit the post but well because of the fantastic Noyer Bienne Wearing. Punished where they opened up a little bit too much defensively especially behind the defense. But I agree with with Craig. Is Very. Well organized did everything to to annoy. By Munich, their resume and The physical aspect of their games. And played them in contract that was the only solution for them to be hopeful for better better school. By Munich manage to do everything well for them and and ensured that. They definitely for me the the favorite now and we've talked about maybe after the other segment, it's. Something to to. Four four. Fulbari. Essential. In. The in the perspective of that final, because by monique was very weak at some point defensively, it's really open started this game and it's fair to say, isn't it Ali before mabry scored? It could could've been to. It could've been any this should have been and so really got to see US putting together a game plan for Leon coming into this game and to match you think okay if we can force a turnover an intimate sale and then with one past week in getting behind, we can get the pine behind Doku accompanied by then maybe we get ourselves goal and we make this game a whole lot different a lot more complicated for buying Munich and that's exactly what Happened it's a turnover by the gun, but now it's a through ball in the pie gets around among annoy open goal unable to score and thinking. Okay. Maybe that was a chance. Maybe that was their opportunity. This is what could have changed the game for Leon, but it wasn't just that chance is tall can be had couple more himself where the one in which he somehow goes through the talented gets up left-footed everything to shoot at hits at the post. And its second slater than that. You see every kind of say. All right. Well, you guys miss your chance. We're not gonNA Miss Hours, and here we go. It's all about our talent and what we can do in the attack in half by immunity took over from there but I agree with frank in the sense that you look at via Munich and how vulnerable and file they look sometimes defensively that in that very transition I think Leon looked at it and Say Wait a minute. If we attack the steam, we're GONNA, create chances and in doing so they got themselves a little bit straight down when they got stretch. Then all of a sudden transition going the other way average scores one, and then things just of opened up, and then of course, the second one again on transition down the left hand side, and then from there, it was all over for Leon and by Mimic what were underway how good was that go from? Craig. Yeah I mean he's a special player now isn't it? I mean let's be quite Frank Burrup. You know three or four years ago he wasn't and his career looked zeph it wasn't really happening anywhere an unfair play. You know he's the guy that tell them to around. You know we can take people on and field you can change your core cheese, you can do ever played himself. has turned on his head and and he's just a huge threat. No. Way that it took the goal in terms of the touch how he inside. There was always two or three defenders around him, and then he just made half nothing more halfway yard. Rifle and the top corner is you started so much. These gave confidence. Experience and played such good players around him and he's he's you know as. You ask the coach he's when he was playing back in. England you know ask no online at West Brom really was a player going nowhere not. Far From Levin Dolph Ski who has the first name on the Bion team sheet this guy is not far behind. That's an amazing. At how does this happen? How does he change around so quickly? While I think Sarandon's have to do a lot with it and I am the expectations that are generated by the people around you and when you have a train environment or by Munich where everybody's expected to perform at a high level at all times and when the only expectation for you individually NFC group is you're GonNa win everything that you participate in. Then you'd better show up I think it demanded the best navarine. We have seen the very best of him. Now, this could have gone horribly wrong for him, and then whenever he was asked to give his best well, maybe that wasn't going to be good enough I by Munich and his career was gonna come to an end somewhere out without having achieved the things and now he has opened himself in terms of the chances that he has in front of the things that he can achieve. I think he got to a point in which he needed to answer the call he needed to be the player that. We all thought that he could have been on at, but we didn't see enough of it now that we see the full potential well, then it's it's it. You just have to SORTA asked the question asked to not only the individual players such whenever he had the you get to this point but to the training environment that he was part of before, that couldn't get this side of him. So yes, it is fair to go and ask the world's going on back there and I think you also have to recognize that via Munich have done a wonderful job of putting him in a position in which he can truly showcase his talent and you can. You also have to say to the player. He was a chance. Here's your opportunity take advantage of it and he has gone so such a good job of really showcasing what he is player this year of
2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates Visit Hollywood
"California presidential primary is less than two weeks. Away and Democratic candidates are in a mad dash to raise money and improve their name recognition. And where better to build both than in Hollywood. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted Welcome back to the frame. Thank you for having so who came to town? And what did they do? Well Amy Klobuchar was at the home of Lorraine Sheinberg. She's the widow of Sydney Shamburg. Who was very top executive at universal and also very politically active and in his career and the rain. Sheinberg played the wife to officer Brody in Jaws yes And it kind of speaks to. What type of support she's getting. People were moderates in the entertainment industry. Probably a little older than you may see from some of the Bernie Sanders side and then p. Buddha judge is in town on Thursday. They've been out here raising money at the home of Seth Macfarlane who is very enthusiastic about his support for the former South Bend Mayor. It's also being co-hosted by league. Annuals I assume most of these events are relatively similar. You pay a couple of bucks you show up at somebody's house maybe get a photo shake hands and here twenty minutes speech. Do they all fall? Pretty much under that same pattern. Yes pretty much. So it's usually the candidate delivering a variation on their stump speech that you can hear in public on the campaign trail sometimes throwing in a few insider risk comments and sometimes doing acuity with donors who are the kinds of people who are hosting these events and are they aligned with one candidate or do. They spread their love around. You are seeing some of that but I think what really distinguishes. This presidential cycle past ones is here. We are just two weeks out from Super Tuesday and there are a lot of those traditional donors. The people who've been involved cycle after cycle who have not declared their support for one candidate or the other. I'm thinking people like Steven Spielberg Jeffrey Katzenberg. Hyme Savan these people who are incredibly involved in what they have done This cycle is. They either sat it out or just spread their money around among multiple candidates so as an observer. It's a it can be a little confusing. Just because someone has given to a candidate does not necessarily mean that. They're going to vote for that person or they're going to endorse a lot of people are just seeing how this plays itself out. We're talking with deadlines Ted Johnson about campaigning for president. In not that long ago I remember and you do as well the town being pretty much split between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the primaries has one candidate really kind of gone to the top in terms of leading Hollywood attention and money right now. Well it's interesting because if you look at the numbers Comma Harris actually is collected more money from the entertainment business than any other candidate. But she's not even in the race anymore. She's followed by people to judge who is raised. I think it's one point. Two million so far from the entertainment business is quite extraordinary that he's raised that amount. Given that a year ago he was unknown and he came in and really became kind of a darling of the entertainment industry very quickly that I think. A lot of donors a saw his candidacy as potentially historic he'd be the first LGBT president and they really won over by his message. They say hey. We see shades of Barack Obama in people to judge now also shouldn't discount Bernie Sanders. He's raised close to nine hundred thousand for the entertainment business for his campaign and he has a very enthusiastic number of supporters people. Like Adam McKay and Susan Sarandon and Mike. I'm war. They're out there on the campaign trail for him. It's just that he is not relying on these types of high dollar fundraisers to finance his campaign. He's is doing it through these small dollar contributions in his messages. Definitely resonating even in the elite circles of Hollywood but I have to add that. It's also tends to be the left side of Hollywood as opposed to the center La. So let's talk about the right side of Hollywood. It isn't very big but have there been any conservative people in the industry who have come out and said things in favor of or given money to president trump we have people who have come out in favor of trump. Benham with him very publicly from the star. People Jon voight. There is a reluctance to come out publicly in support president trump because there is a lot of blowback. I've talked to trump supporters. Who said they just don't want their names associated with him because things are so polarized at this time but if Bernie Sanders nominee will see. I've talked to centrist donors who are very concerned about sanders getting the nomination. They won't come out and say that that is going to force them into trump's hands. They'll they'll say I'm just GONNA sit it out if he ends up being the nominee but we'll see and once the primary in Nevada is over. Will there be a return of candidates coming back to La looking for more support now yet Joe Biden was post to have an event this week in southern California but that was rescheduled. Because he has to spend so much time on the campaign trail after a pretty dismal performance. In Iowa and New Hampshire. But we're now getting down to just a week away not just from Super Tuesday but also from the South Carolina. Vote so this is. This is crunch time for these campaigns in taking them off the campaign trail has to be a very Savvy calculation that it is going to end up being worth it to fly into California for our fundraiser will probably see the candidates flocked to California not this weekend but the following weekend for those first couple days before Super Tuesday.

'The Goldfinch' paints dull picture from prize-winning book
"Donna tarts 2013 book the Goldfinch won a Pulitzer Prize for its story of a boy whose mother dies in bombing. It is an epic tale of grief life abandonment friendship drugs and stolen painting of a Goldfinch now the Goldfinch has been adapted into a movie starring Ansel elgort Oaks vaguely Nicole Kidman Luke Wilson Jeffrey Right in Wolf Hart and Sarah Paulson. I'm Stephen Thompson this week on pop culture happy hour from NPR. You're talking the Gold Bitch of the movie movie and the book that spawned in here with me in the studio is very hardiman. Who was the books editor for Weekend Edition. Hello Bury. It is a pleasure to have you here. Also with us is writer Katie Presley Wrestling Hello Katy Hi there and also joining us writer Chris Clinic Hello Chris. I've seen Goldfinger a hundred times. I'm so excited to talk about so I'm not going to start with you and give you a couple of minutes to regroup start with Berry. You've read the book have and you've seen the movie. Would you think think well I will say that this movie suffers from something that I think often happens when you try to maybe be just slightly to faithful full to a in terms of literary adaptation the book which is a doorstop of a book and has so many places and plot points. If you reduce it down to its plot points it becomes a very and then this and then this and then this and then this and the movie to me felt very plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot plot. Here's a lovely actor plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot and in their ways in which you know as you read the list of actors in it and I heard Ansel elgort oaks vaguely. I thought well that sounds like a more interesting movie because it didn't it sort of lost some of its Dickensian deal of the book because it seems to me. Maybe you had a director who was so who wanted to be. He's just so faithful to the book that he he neglected to tell the real story of the book which I think you can do and lose truly like maybe half off of the plot. which in some ways is maybe how I felt about the book? I think Donna Tart is marvelous. I am a huge secret for history fan and this is a hard one to do. You're telling this story that spans a number of years and and that involves a lot of characters being played by multiple actors unless you are Nicole Kidman your role is is split between only do a roll if she can play a forty year span in a in a characters life exactly so so this is a sprawling story so to summarize a little bit of that plot boy named Theo he he is at a museum with his mom. The museum bombed his mother dies and feel winds up taking a painting from the museum and that painting has an impact on his life as the the movie follows him through his childhood and his young adulthood so there there is a lot there's a lot of character development to pack into this story and it sort of follows the the fate of this kid and of this painting Katie. Would you think a dark secret about me as a reader is I really am not generous wis.. It's morally questionable characters so I think in order like you're supposed to be in order to be an intelligent reader your supposed to appreciate morally A. and big. US or even morally repugnant characters because they're interesting. I can't stand them. I'm a nice person right like do do it in the streets apparently able in the sheets of a book. Yes the book. Write it on a bathroom. Okay life so what made the book interesting to me was that the central question of the book is a question of moral ambiguity like a boy away who is very recently concussed has just been in a has just been the victim of a terrorist attack plucks painting out of a museum because he thinks he's supposed post to because a dying man has told him to and then as he gets older he realizes what he's done and it becomes a dark web kind of closing in in on him what he's done and the sorts of people who want in on what he's done somehow the movie didn't capture that complexity to the character of Theo. I'm very judgy of unlikeable. Characters is the pithy way of saying it that is a fundamental part of who theo is is that the way that he processes the trauma of losing his mother and being in that explosion is by getting into some really shady stuff and I think the the elgort performance manages to lose that but also doesn't gain any charisma so felt like a very flat performance to me and not performance is central to you have to care about him if you're going to care about this story. He's the one that makes you believe that. The painting is magical. He's the one that makes you believe that the object of his affection is Helen of Troy like worth all affection and that his caretaker is as benevolent as he is. There's so much magic that the book has time came to expand upon through. Theo's is the movie didn't give you so. I came out feeling Gosh. That was awfully pretty gosh. I'm glad I read that Gorgeous Book Doc. Gosh why I'm hungry. It was long. That was the last thing hunger what you came out all right. How about you Chris Yeah. I didn't quite finish the novel before I saw the movie because it is a few pages shy of eight hundred pages so it is about three times the length of a typical novel so even a two and a half hour movie movie is a very hurried very condensed adaptation of this. I think I agree with with Katie's macro critique of how the you know. The movie tells the story and loses nearly all the subtext I sort I thought I would enjoy that more because Theo is the narrator of the novel and we get a little bit of voice over from him in the film but not very much not in his his head you know living with his perceptions the way you are for every word of this again eight hundred page book. I think this movie needed a director with a more a deft hand at combining time period. This is a you know a film and novel that jumps back and forth between our Neri narrators thirteen and when he's I dunno twenty eight or thirty or something Christopher Nolan is a director who does this this really well. Sorry I know always the person defending the Chris Nolan movie in this in this corner but he might have found a way to make it even longer that's not fair. That's got dunkirk but yeah but that thing that this film attempts were were were making the something that is chronologically prior to most of what we've seen gene feel like the emotional climax of the film that is the kind of card trick that he can pull off in this director John Crouch John Crowley who made Brooklyn which I which I like very much. That's a much much much simpler story. It's linear. I don't mean to diminish her or Sarandon's performance but I mean she's not morally conflicted in the way that that answer low Gorz that that Theo is in in this movie. I think that's a great a great adaptation this just I yeah it feels hammy plotting kind of workmanlike. I think it diminishes the book doc somewhat of the same reaction one thing that I kept thinking throughout this movie was why is this a movie and not and I don't mean like why is this a movie like why does is this exist. I'm not sitting there with my arms folded but I'm thinking why isn't this and this is this is gonNA sound counterintuitive. Why isn't this an eight hour series. Why isn't this I mean. This is Amazon Studios. They could have made this as a as a long form TV project and given the filmmakers time to dry out these characters a little a bit better. This is an epic story. This is seven hundred seventy three page book. This is a two and a half hour movie and the movie somehow feels both rushed and slow oh and that's a really tough combination because they're racing through all these plot machinations and I just kept sitting there and it felt longer than two and a half hours. I just kept sitting there thinking. I don't feel like I'm getting to know these characters. I can tell we're a long way from the ending and yet at the same time at weirdly weirdly doesn't feel like anything's happening even though they're so much plot I found the experience of watching the movie to be really frustrating as much as it. It is beautifully shot. I think there are some lovely performances and then I think it's very nicely cast think oaks vaguely as young was a non he was. Aso Oh he was also in Pete's Dragon. Which is I know I've heard the name oaks vaguely before I think he's terrific. I think fin wolf hard as the OS Ukrainian best friend and that he meets when he has been transported to the horrors of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He meets this. He meets this kid. Boris played by and Woolford who has really thick accent and I'm so used to seeing fin wolf heart in the movies or in stranger things but I thought that was a strangely lovely performance really affecting performance. I liked the child actors in this a little bit more than some of the grownup performances. There are all these little components of it that I like. It's shot by Roger Deacons. WHO's an amazing cinematographer awesome. I was kind of a standard with his credit came up at the end because this is not a movie that I mean it's mostly indoors it. You know it doesn't have the kind of big visas of movies like bladerunner when she finally went his Oscar for or you know sicario or the Coen brothers movies he's made but yeah I I was surprised because it just felt like TV for me and not you know not prestige. TV necessarily kind of well. I think wow I mean I do but I do think that's part of it as it did feel like it had the tone of like a like a big little lies tight type story and partly because it enter Cole Kidman but like it felt like it should be on TV. I think that's right because the book itself self is also incredibly episodic. You have and she does this. I mean this is a very secret history a little friend kind of thing to do where she is interested in the interplay of these different worlds of being in the busy the teaming space of New York and the upper east side and then being in this wasteland of Las Vegas and then being the places you go and her books and the way that like class and police and person rub up against each other is is very important and again every idea in this movie feels very unfinished. He obviously understood that thing about class that she's talking about. He understood the thing about you know first impression and art and an in how trauma plays but everything only gets a glancing blow and had it banned you know here is the episode with Boris in Amsterdam. Here is the episode bestowed with Boris and unless Vegas. I think you would have gotten a little more of that and you know what would have been really nice as you know because the book doesn't really have a doesn't land the plane really you're really just sort of circling over a philosophy rather than a a plot ending you would have given the viewer more time to develop it on their own so I I walked out feeling sort of confused and I didn't have that feeling of you know even though I did feel the book's ending is finished I i. I still felt that I'd had an experience of all these things. There was a lot to talk about. There was a lot to think about. I did not feel this here except there was a lot to love in the apartment. I do want to shoutout Oh. My God will be but also hoagies apartment beautiful. I liked all the apartments actually the glimpses you got of the Os the apartment art that deals with his mother and the barber's so the Barbara's are the wealthy family that I take. Theo in immediately after the explosion and e barber is he's a friend of the owes a classmate they were closer as young boys than they are now but they take him in and misses Barbara's played by Nicole Kidman. Who who I gotta say has never I'm not in a coal kidman person and so I think one of the places that this movie faltered for me is it she was like a black hole and the camera just rested on her face gazing at Theo thoughtfully and I was like this is wasted time is not an idea exactly and like that so much of how she actually acts through her cheek bones those are the antenna you know you're watching them for curry action and just like the little movements at the corner of her mouth and I don't Act Shoe Willie find that very interesting. I'm cheekbone person. I like a good cheek bone but it felt felt contractual. It felt like Ms Kidman requires no fewer than fifteen minutes of close up on cheek and the character both in I will say this. This is true in the book and the Movie Opens Up Santa Clara yes in her older age. She her family encounters major tragedy that that compounds the sympathy see that she was already forming for Theo but when we're talking about these weird drops into melodrama added melodrama that was not necessary because the story sorry could be dramatic if you let it breathe a little bit more so like too much time on Kidman. She did not work for me. I did actually like her at her oldest eight in the movie. I saw all of her performances written on top of each other. I saw in your wife like a close match of the way that Hart describes the character but you don't have to do it. Exactly the way tart describes the character you can cast someone else you go a different direction. You know you can still you. An adaptation is not a straight st translation right. I do want to say one thing because if people do not want to see this movie which I would certainly understand after this conversation I will say the book itself is one if those wonderfully meandering tales that actually benefits from the time you spend reading it you know you dip into it for a new episode and the writing eating is absolutely incandescent the descriptions of the furniture the look at Las Vegas the even the descriptions of some of the emotions like the tears ears that fall out of his face that are unconnected to I mean they're they're all of these moments in the book that really stick with you and I will say I do think it is absolutely worth whatever time time you put in to this book too so I agree. I just you

Barr directs federal government to reinstate death penalty, schedule the execution of 5 death row inmates
"Penalty. The book was turned into the academy award winning film starring susan sarandon and sean penn her new book. Doc is just out this week. It's called river of fire. My spiritual journey sister helen prejean also the founder of survive a victim's advocacy cacique group in new orleans. She continues to council not only prisoners on death row but also the families of murder victims sister helen per sean. It's great to have view back here right <hes> congratulations on your book as you here in the last week's surprise announcement of the attorney general william embar that they are re basically restoring the federal death penalty and they immediately said they would kill five five prisoners who've been on federal death row and then in the wake of the past so in the dayton killings saying bar just announcing that he will <hes> particularly go after mass shooters in this country. It may be that many people agree with him. What are your thoughts well. I'm not surprised that we're embar. Did this or the trump administration wants to expedite federal executions. It's is their whole way of approaching everything that the way is through violence to try to solve social problems. The federal death penalty is not going to a. b. Any more equal justice under law then the st death penalties have been the mood in the country is to shut the death penalty down i in practice actes and then gradually state by state to repeal it. The way that federal death penalty has always worked. It's been up to the discretion of individual federal prosecutors secures so we've had side by side whereas in manhattan in new york federal prosecutors never went for the death penalty over in texas they were always going for the death breath penalty and this will be no different so i'm not at all surprised they're doing it. They also seem to have no understanding about how the courts work. They can can claim all they want that. They're gonna fast track this and speed up these executions but there is the constitution and there are the appeals and so i've been talking to a federal defenders of these cases and of course they're going to do everything they can't to save their clients life and your new book the you it. It's more of a recounting of your life story in terms of how you're your own journey from a child in louisiana. What's suit. Could you talk about how you you developed. I in in your ministry <hes> in in when you decided to go into prison ministry yeah yeah i mean it's called river of fire and the epigraph in it is from saint bonaventure. Ask not for understanding ask for the fire fire. The fire part was when the passion and my own soul erupted that i can't just ask god to solve the problems of the world are it just be charitable to the people around me but that the deepest dimensions of the gospel of jesus called me to justice so i got involved with poor people in new orleans african americans who became my teachers helped me understand what white privilege is helped me understand what institutional racism and it's while while i was in that soil in that terrain living among african american people struggling against poverty and racism. I got an invitation one day to write a man on death row. I i never dreamed it was going to be executed. It was in the early eighties and we hadn't had an execution in twenty years a wrote a letter to he wrote back in two and a half years years later he was executed and that's the fire because i describe it in the preface. In the book they killed a man with fire fire. One night they strapped him in wooden chair and pumped electricity through his body until he was dead. His killing was a legal act. No oh religious leaders protested the killing that night but always there are saw it with my own eyes and what i saw set my soul on fire a fire that burns me still so i- traced my journey of spiritual awakening from private religion being apolitical. I pulled it a call to rolling up my sleeves and getting engaged with if justice is going to come then we have to be the ones to do it and in our democracy in our country so i've had constant dialogue with mike church the catholic church people first of all also the hark but mostly host the people and i've seen how that dialogue pays off finally on august second two thousand eighteen after sixteen hundred years pope francis declared under no conditions.

"sarandon" Discussed on Sports? with Katie Nolan
"If neither of us young red pit though. Well, he's a bad not a bad guy. But he's not a great guy. So it Susan Sarandon and Gena Davis in opposite order so Thelma is Gina and Louise is Susan and they go on a trip that's supposed to be a weekend trip to get away from Gina. David thelma's husband, who sucks and Louise's dating a musician. But he's just recapping. The expert on this movie if you could speak since rain dating a traveling musician so the goal on this weekend, but they stop at a bar on their way out to the trip and the guy tries to rape Gena Davis in the parking lot. I said like as if it would soften what I was about to say actually just made it to her. But so then so facto concorded -ly, Louise shoots him and kills him. But they don't go to the cops because they think that the cops won't believe that he was trying to rape her. And they'll just think murderer which pretty accurate I'd say, yeah. So anyway, then are running from the law, and they get into all this crazy stuff. And then at the end, they shall we? I don't know if we should say, I don't think every person. Limitations person. We'll just give. Disclaimer just spoiler. If you haven't seen moving push the. Push the movies push button. Okay. So at the very end there cornered by the law. Say it. No, you should say that was the whole point of the bit. Probably a little they killed himself. They drive off a cliff. No. I know. But I said it it wasn't working. We tried it didn't work. So he you know, what I realize after last pot. I say, so here's the thing a lot. Yeah. So don't get in your head about it. Here's one of the things. Okay. Improvement. You also do that to me, you know, that you go to things, and then you go and you give me five. Some in the ways I haven't seen it. And yet, I know it is it is a duo. They are duo that is commonly referenced as the pit Amee of friendship, and like badass women who will go through anything together Wayne and Garth same. Yeah. But they don't they don't drive off a cliff together there but into that situation for sure Wouldn't. wouldn't. Yeah. I love Wayne and Garth Wayne's world. So great we used to reference it a lot in production meetings of garbage time because we felt like we're making a local access television show, and we actually were, but it's I they're just such that movie is so good for comedy and a love it. But Thelma, and Louise what what I cons in that movie that I've seen so many many times. Honestly, really, I feel like I couldn't not choose it. So I think I have I'm going with them on these really. Oh, oh, where are you going to say anything different Selma? I wait what? I think you would be well, no, I'm probably film in your probably Louise forget, which ones Louisa Susan Sarandon. My Susan Sarandon Gina, Dave. I think your season Susan serandon. But because you would protect me in a situation room..
