"Out on a few books I'm bummed out right now there are a lot of books out there were turns out. There's many books. Well, point is is a history of cancer in fighting in it's the most well written book. So many people recommended on here that I finally got it and I'm almost done with it and it's just as beautifully written really comprehensive history of the battle against cancer. It's his fascinating book I highly recommend it after you re rise and fall I rise and fall. Yeah. Next year when you finish that book pick up. Next year. That's a beast at the base that Book Okay My last question for you to end things and thanks for all your time. What does the future hold for animation? Specifically I think about the fact that with the streaming platforms, there's really less and less will there be a syndication window or a foreign rights window, right all these revenue streams that major show. So profitable, where do you see the future animation and you see this is helpful or harmful we more quantity but less quality what's going to happen I mean? I don't know if it's more quality and less quality I think it's more period and so more greater odds that something inspired will emerge It's tough to say mean I think technology is going to play a big part up till now two dimensional animation still rules on television it still king that Pixar CGI. Three D. animation technology hasn't really been harnessed in television I don't know why that is I think it's just what it requires to hold. People's attention is something you can only do with film schedule I mean. That's the enemy. You know you watch Bob's Burgers or family guy or big mouth or any of these shows that are on now throw kind of existing in the same visual world they're not that different. Yeah. So the big change is really going to be something technological. I think you know as far as the Formula I mean big. Bang theory is is that's a show that looks like every Sitcom from the eighties or nineties I mean sitcoms they don't change. Ryan I think at the moment neither does animation so. It's going to be somebody overturning a rock or somebody just completely rewriting the rule book the way the Simpsons did in the nineties the elephant in the room to is it's very hard in the age of twitter comedy exists on pushing boundaries. It exists on experimentation I remember hearing that Dave Chapelle made people put their cell phones into a bowl and he was worked shopping standup material because if he told a joke that didn't fly, he wanted to know if it was too far over the line before the world side. and. That's why you workshop things and so you know animation historically is certainly since the simpsons television animation that's been Mo is to dip your toe across that line and see where it is and the only way to do it is to try it and see what sticks and what's too far and I think now there is a lot less of an ability to separate fiction from reality the number of people that I read online who watch family guy and think, oh, this must be who this guy is and it's like, no, this is. Fiction that's like saying, Oh, Norman Lear must be a racist because Archie bunker was a racist no character right? It's not real. Vin L..

"Yeah it's a musical pillow. Okay. Now you're output work is so enormous and as we've learned in I was already suspicious of its money's not driving you some curious. What is the engine for you? Well, it depends if it's something that I'm taking a personal interest in than it's just purely for the creative pleasure of. Doing I mean things like Ted things like family guy at the beginning things like the Orville are shows that I've been directly involved with, and I mean even cosmos that was Andrian baby and she and Brannon Braga were creative muscle behind that cosmos I was more of a conduit to help get it promote and get it on Fox but have you developed a personal friendship with Neil degrasse Tyson as A result, I meant Neil through this Organization for the Science and entertainment exchange in Hollywood the believe started by Jerry and Janet Zucker the idea is to introduce writers scientists. Yeah. Because so much of America gets their science from fiction. So we might as well get it right their sense of responsibility. So I met Neil through that and I had lunch for them in New York and I said I'm. At a point where there's a little bit of disposable income here, what can I do? How can I help? Yeah to expand the enterprise of science and he said, well, we're talking about doing a reboot of Cosmos for the Discovery Channel or wherever it was and I said well, okay. Well, maybe I can help their what if it was where a lot more people who need to see it with safe? and. So that was Fox and that's how I met Andrew and who's probably the smartest person I know Oh that's saying a lot she is I would say legitimate genius. And Yeah and it was a labor of love and so something like that. It's more of a I suppose it's a public service. So as your interest, some call to your community is validation in there are you human? It does you don't hate it. You know. Hey. So it was I mean look something like Cosmos real validation comes in you know, will we see an improvement in that facet of our society? Will we see more of a interest in a trust in science than we have in recent years as a public works, right? Yeah. That show can push us even a small amount in that direction, then it will do some good. Yeah. Okay. Now, I'm GONNA air one of my own insecurities. Okay. You're ready for this. Sure.

Were you were you nervous that people would be hypercritical of you? Did you have any apprehension about that I? Didn't because it wasn't something that I sought out I had done this variety show I hope I'm getting this timeline right but as I, recall it. I we. Did this variety show for Fox, Alex Burstein and I was like a one off and with an orchestra was it universal republic records approached me and said, do you want to do some kind of an album with us? We'd liked the special and I said well, what like what did I don't know whatever you want and I said well, could I just do like a like just? A bunch of songs like standards or yeah and they said sure whatever you want and so it was presented to me and I snapped it up because I was a big fan of that kind of music I loved Sinatra, love, Dean Martin Crosbie and Vic Damone and Mel Torme and Gordon MacRae like all these vocalists and so I took advantage of the opportunity and love working with. Orchestras my whole family had song. My Dad's saying, my mom's I my sister sang. So it was always a part of our lives and part of my childhood and it was something that was too good to pass up and did well enough to keep it going I said go. This can be a great side Gig I.

So I'm nowhere near being he got okay. So I guess what one of the things I'm curious about is well, let's really quickly while we're on the topic, you have a new album that's coming now really shortly here right great songs from stage and screen that you're next album. Yes. Okay. You seem sure of that or say something wrong you're like, yeah I. Know I didn't realize that was the end of the sentence. Can Be misleading sometimes is that you're talking to a Scottish guy, all of a sudden, your new song great songs from stage in screen it songs from stage and screen. It's a fun series of UPTEMPO tunes and ballads that are all from a show of somebody with it be an old film or an old Broadway show and some more well known some more obscure. It's very light to very light album due to wherever you like go perform I, have I mean not like a regular till like the what I have done in the past for number years in a row actually has to sit in with. Symphony orchestras like I'll take my conductor, Joel mcneely and our rhythm section, and we'll do a show with the Boston pops or the San Francisco symphony or the Chicago Symphony or Philadelphia symphony. So we've been all over the country with orchestras and it's fun because we bring all of our charts and you play those songs with Ninety Piece Ensemble. It's the best. Do you feel some safety-net like to me I? Guess the reason sketch appealed to me more than stand up is like if I died at least I'd go backstage with the people died with an it'd be funny I would imagine that having that armament.

Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series

"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.

Biden and Sanders brace for one-on-one battle in new phase of Democratic race

"To the fray mom. John Horn the race to be the Democratic nominee for president is basically down to two candidates now Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders after Elizabeth. Warren dropped out today. Warren and former candidate Pete. Buddha judge attracted a good amount of support from Hollywood. So where do all those donors and their money go now? Ted Johnson has been covering all this for deadline dot com as its Washington. Dc correspondent Ted. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me so. A lot has changed in the candidate landscape since we last talked Pete. Buddha judge had the support of big names like Lee Daniels and Seth McFarland since dropping out Buddha judge endorsed Biden have some of his supporters followed. Yes some of the fundraisers have committed to Joe Biden's campaign actually did fairly quickly after people to judge endorsed Biden. And I'm talking about names that are really household. Names former executive and NBC universal a fundraising consultant. People like Lee Daniels in Seth Macfarlane. They actually hosted a fundraiser for people to judge they haven't said where they're GONNA go. Seth Macfarlane is. I actually tweeted out. The fact that in the last cycle he endorsed Bernie Sanders. So perhaps he's weighing that decision whether to go for by her whether a Gopher Sanders so I think people are still still may be a little bit on the fence even though there has been this definite movement toward Joe Biden's campaign. Let's talk more about that. There was a big fundraiser. Last night hosted by former paramount pictures head Sherry Lansing and I think a lot of the momentum hinges on his performance on Super Tuesday. You wrote in deadline that I think at one point eighty people were expected. It turned out to be a whole lot more than that. What happened. Well Yeah Actually. I talked to Sherry Lansing on Monday. And since then she continued to get phone calls for people interested in coming to the event and they finally had to cut it off. I think at about three hundred and fifty people. They just couldn't accommodate anymore to a certain extent. This isn't that surprising because Joe Biden occupies that moderate lane in. There aren't a lot of other options left so if you are not in favor of sanders you're probably naturally going to be looking at Joe Biden if you want to be engaged to this political cycle we're shaping up to have a Biden Bernie battle in Hollywood and we'll see how this plays out. It could be ended up being as as contentious and even nasty as it was back in two thousand and eight when you saw this huge division in Hollywood between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton if there were any lessons learned about that polarization that fight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. How did the town eventually choose where? There's some conflicted feelings about working with people who might have supported another candidate. Yeah for some people. I think it took them a while. I'm Savan is actually a big name. He's a longtime donor to the Democratic Party. Big Media executive known often for mighty morphin power rangers but he was a figure that was very much behind Hillary Clinton. He appeared on the today show and it took a while to actually get behind Barack Obama. I think it took him until the fall to support Obama's candidacy so it could be even more difficult when you are considering a choice between Biden and Bernie because the division isn't so much behind these two different personalities as it is ideological this race has been set up as a race between the moderates and the left or the far left. And you didn't see that back in two thousand eight. We're talking with Ted Johnson at deadline dot com about Hollywood's take on the two remaining Democratic candidates Elizabeth. Warren has officially dropped out of the race. But she's not endorsing anybody yet. She has a lot of Hollywood support. People that Krissy teagan and buried Jenkins is there any indication yet of where her supporters might go again? I think that this is where people could definitely be on the fence. Between Biden and between Bernie Sanders. I was added warrant event in South Carolina last week with John Legend. And he was. I thought an extraordinarily effective spokesperson for her campaign. He hasn't said Who He's going to endorse yet but he actually would be Think a valuable endorsement for either campaign and he seemed to really kind of reflect. This idea that weren't tried to advance that. There was kind of middle ground between what Biden represented and what sanders represented and she She just had a news conference. Apparently I was wrong about that. That there really wasn't that that lane in this Democratic primary so we'll see what someone like John Legend how he comes out in supporting either. By Sander's there are some very big Hollywood players who have yet to say where their money is going to go to be no which way they're leaning. And how influential are they in? Where other money might go after they pick a candidate? Yes people like Sabban people like Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Heaven publicly said who they're backing. I would be awfully surprised if they went for Bernie Sanders Just because people like for example Jeffrey Katzenberg. He has contributed to multiple candidates in this race except for Sanders. So I I think that might be an indication right there. Some of these figures wanted to kind of sit out the primary process but their support can be influential. It has the bandwagon effect. It probably would have been more influential earlier in the primary because it kind of would have rallied the troops behind one of these more moderate candidates but it will matter to a fair degree especially in fundraising. Especially if someone like a Katzenberg or someone like a High Sabban not only host fundraisers but also get involved in some of the Super Pacs for these campaigns where they can raise a much greater sums of money in the millions as opposed to twenty eight hundred. There might be some people in the country who would say to themselves. Well if George Clooney supports this candidate. I'm going to support that candidate. Is that really the factor though the celebrity endorsement or is it more about the money and what the check writing ability can mean for these candidates. Well I think that it depends on what time in the process. There's not a whole lot of evidence that voters look to celebrities for who they are going to vote for. But what they can do is kind of help. Elevate a candidate in terms of attention. And that's extremely important during the primary process. Probably less important when we get into the general election when it's just two candidates facing other and that's where fundraising tends to become a bigger issue especially as we get closer and closer to

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.

Showtime's 'The Loudest Voice' Tells The True Story Of The Downfall Of Roger Ailes At Fox News

"The loudest voice. It's the new Showtime miniseries. Stories about the rise and fall of Fox News and particularly of Roger Ailes, the infamous founder of Fox News. Seth plays a character real life character named Brian Lewis. He was the head of public relations at FOX for many years. He came with Roger Ailes from CNBC when Roger was launching, Fox News. And he was most people would tell you the right hand of Roger Ailes. He was the pit bull. He guarded the company's internal business for Roche ously could be very tough with reporters obviously, but also anybody who tried to crack into the Fox News bubble. I think you'll be interested to hear Sestri bestirred drawing when he was two years old. He wrote a letter to Jim Henson studios when he was nine years old announcing that he was going to be a puppeteer and a cartoonist a kid who kind of knew what he wanted to be from the age of two and, you know, he gets into how do you do that? You have the dream when you're a kid, you move onto the Rhode Island school of design as he did. And. He was hired right away. They recognize his talent out to Hollywood worked on an animated show for a couple years before, again, when he was twenty four years old. He started family guy, which, by the way was cancelled twice was, not an immediate hit, I think people forget that. So to set the scene for you Seth and I got together at cafe. Carlyle at the famed Carlyle hotel in New York City. The cafe Carlyle is a jazz club. Seth has performed there a couple times because on top of everything else begin things that are scary. He sings in public. He's got five albums, including his latest once in a while, and he's been nominated for four Grammy award. So I got him to sit down at the piano, we got him to play a little bit sing a little bit. Do the thing that Seth MacFarlane does, but mostly to walk through fascinating life in fascinating career where the guy just does something different and surprises people all the time, a great conversation with Seth MacFarlane. We start by talking about the loudest voice, the series on Showtime. About Fox News. Thanks for doing this man for sure. So we've already gotten I think halfway through the show already we'll will start for the benefit of the viewers again. Yeah. I want to start with your character before we talk big picture, because I don't think most people know who he is. In fact, I know most people don't know, who is if you don't live in our media world Brian Lewis, who was he. And why is it important character in this big story, Brian Lewis was Roger Ailes PR chief for Fox News? And he also sort of functioned as his right hand man, and a lot of ways you know, this, this was the guy that Roger would blow off steam, too. And, and also the guy who was comfortable enough keeping keeping them in line when he may be got a little too off the rails. And, you know, according to the to Gabe chairman's book, and according to the series, he was also a guy was who was kind of on the outside of the. Emotional end of things. He was he was he was a democrat. Chocking way, working for Fox News. But more importantly, he was kind of a gun for hire. He was there because, you know, it was a good job and the ethics of it didn't really come into play. It was about, you know, being Boba fett. I guess. Liberal hire me, then he's a bounty hunter. So how did he to the extent? You got inside his head by reading the book. How did he reconcile knowing what he was doing was often wrong unethical? Yes. Doing the job. Well, I mean according to the material that I read that he, he at the end of the day he was. He could compartmentalize, he could put his family over here and his job over here, and essentially be two different people. But at a certain point. You know, he he idolized ales for a long time, and he really respected ails, as a marketer. And as as a as a promoter of whatever it was he wanted to promote. And he, I guess must have started to see him unraveling a little bit. And. It was probably a combination of genuine concern. Because there seemed to be a conscience there. And, and professional concern that, okay, I worked for this guy this reflects on me and, and he's starting to come apart at the seams.

"It was so, but I mean, again, it's like picking I I would like I would watch it again. Yeah. I watched it again. Liam Neeson was great. Yep. Wisely. Niece and got to be in westerns all the time. What's up with because he's higher against type little bit? He was kinda scummy. Yeah. I know he was in that family guy movie. What's his name? The the Seth MacFarlane one thousand ways to die in the western ever. He's on that. But I thought that was more that played off the fact that they made fun of them in family guy. And I could you imagine Liam Neeson and a western he's like let's go over there to the planes. And then I guess it was like Ableman your movie. Proper chicken. That's pretty great. Here was yes, get you. I'll watch it. God. I love the cone. I mean, the thing is this isn't no good. Sorry, stand Harpen that carriage one. But for me, that's kind of I knew where it was knowing as I was watching it that's kind of like the dark. You know for boating thing that I love. Yeah. But the thing is this movie isn't the only thing the only standout there's been a lot of good. Yeah. Move back to other movies, at least was going through a list of them. The other night is Purdue. That's Dalla was good. That was why I kind of went through like Cloverfield. That I've seen and then not clover the field. They're paradox. But movies that I've seen in the mood. But then also the movies like have buzz that I I wanna watch. And I'm or I'm interested in. So actually, I watched one just the other night something I didn't expect I'd like all but actually really enjoyed and it had a buzz earlier this year. But that was to all the boys love before you guys seen this. I've talked Can to you you. tell me more? Do you really not? No, no, no. This is one about it's like a teen rom com. My love teens. It's Juno for the post millennial age. I'm in what kind of hamburger phone does. She have. I thought it was sweet in generally find children these aren't children actors, but young actors not very believable. But these the several of the main characters I thought were just spectacular the main girl specifically, I don't know should have written her name down. She's jubilee in the really vettix movie. But she's fantastic. I hope I see your and more stuff is more of an indie kind of like lower much. I mean to you. Looks like a rom a high school romantic comedy, the this girl writes letters to all the boys that she loves just kind of as her secret way of dealing with her love, and those letters might there. There's a guides them all away never sense them. It's just kind of how she gets it out. But somehow they get out there and all the boys that she has loved find out that you let them, but it's from different points in her life. So then she kind of involves her like her in attempting to resolve the situation doesn't like she can't necessarily go. She's she doesn't have a crush anymore on the boy she had a crush on in kindergarten or the boy, she kissed when she was in whatever like she. She's but then she test to come to terms with those feelings afterwards and see how things shake out. Gotcha. Because she's hurting she's currently in love with her sisters expo friends.

Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host

"Oscars. Well as often happens when things like this are announced. Offensive tweets that Kevin Hart had years ago. Came up and these tweets were reposted and made their way around social media. Many of these tweets were, very homophobic, and Kevin Hart had to sit here and realized that this was a big controversy. All of these tweets he had looked Kevin Hart's a comedian. And he tweeted out some things that he probably thought were funny. One thing was about his son growing up if he was gay. I would stop him from being gay. Now is this him talking tongue-in-cheek is this him being a hundred percent serious? I mean, you know, you don't know what's in somebody's mind when they want to tweet something, and again, these are tweets from years ago many as much as ten years ago. It got so bad. Kevin Hart stepped down as host of the Oscars. He was announced today, and he withdrew from hosting the Oscars. Now, the Oscars has to go look for somebody else to host the show because of these homophobic comments that were made on Twitter by him years and years ago, and the reason this intersection sports is because this is the same thing we saw earlier sear with Josh hater we saw with Josh Allen quarterback of the bills night of the NFL draft. All these racist tweets from Josh Allen from five years ago when he was in high school came up same thing with Josh Hader. Josh comes in all star game, boom. Neither the all star game. Here's some old tweets from Josh hater where he saying some very racist things. And Josh Hader, had to apologize for Josh Allen had to apologize for maybe fell a little bit through the draft because of it. But this has happened now. So many times mainly we saw it in the world. Of sports. But now, here's entertainment. And it's the first thing you think of when you see Kevin Hart is Josh and Josh Allen, and how many times and now you're wondering the next time. This is going to happen. Because believe me, there's people who have these tweets saved up waiting for the right moment to say, you know, what I'm gonna loose this on everybody. And you're going to see exactly what they said years and years ago some seven years ago eight ten years ago doesn't matter they use the curiosity in this particular case. And obviously, you can't it's like when we talk about these sarcasm font and it being necessary for Twitter, right where people take you at your word, Kevin Hart as a comedian and distasteful. Sure, we can have those discussions in the change of where the line is in a in a lot of discussion and a lot of where society and culture in a second in a lot of. Areas at this point. But this is something he's address before the something. He's talked about before. And he's continued to make at a minimum ten movie swabs GV appearances. Plus stand up tours whatever every year. This is not been a controversy. That's in persistent. So but now. But why why is the Oscars? The biggest thing he's ever done in his hosting the Oscars. That's the biggest thing. This is the pinnacle of his career hosting the Oscars. A really really big deal. Sure, it is you it's bigger than any movie he's ever done. It's a bigger audience at one point a bigger. Focus on him. No, no, focus on how bad or well. His his performance, you host the Oscars. It's the biggest moment of your career. Biggest moment of Seth Macfarlane's career. Biggest moments of Billy crystal's grand. These are guys that have had great careers. But you Oscars. That's something different. You're talking about a television audience. That's only rivaled by the Super Bowl. It's more people watch the super, obviously. So it's a little bit less than that. But you're talking about a television audience that that everybody is watching you this is about you. It's once in a lifetime. So this is when okay, what is really the most the most powerful time to strike at Kevin Hart. When a movie of his is coming out on a Friday or hey, your name is the Oscar host. You know, what bull here it is? Here's these Ray. And because the new cycle is owned by the fact that here, you are you're the Oscar host so people are paying attention to this story already. And now, here's where I come out with. Here's these tweets he had years and years ago that he's addressed and instead of bowing to the pressure from the Oscar said, hey, we need you to apologize. We need you to go and condemn what you said. And he's talked about it. Because look I was a different guy, then those jokes is part of the act, etc. And take him at his word or don't the reality is it's it's years in the past that has been addressed. He said, I'm not apologizing about I get that. Some of the things though are need a little bit more of an explanation. Maybe he's gonna regret it later because it's the Oscars. He's gonna say I'll buy I would have had to why did they not do this? It's the Oscars because right now his reputation is really low. You don't wanna turn into some look what happened to Mel Gibson for how many years he was like everybody's staying away from him. And he's had to come back in the shadows. And come back from from getting arrested in everything and he's not really all the way back yet. Kevin hart. I didn't need to apologize. But what explain some of this stuff? Just do something to say, why don't you want your son to grow up? I don't want to be a conversation about this. The it's mainly about how would you become famous? You have to realize, and this is what so many people on Twitter don't realize when they first get on it. It's not a group tech. Next right, Twitter's not a group. Text Twitter is not you and a bunch of people hanging out in the living room making jokes. But that's how people treat it like they're texting with their friends like, hey like athletes like Josh Allen. He's just fooling around in high school. He's around on Twitter with his buddies who were on Twitter. And it's a fun thing thinks like it's only the small circle of us. That are looking at things Twitter is a record is a physical record of you, your beliefs, and what you say, and everybody's got to realize that and athletes don't realize that you're not in a locker room hanging out talking and saying off color things and things that could be offensive. But because you're joking around in the locker room, everything is okay. That's not what Twitter is and people still don't realize that Josh hater didn't realize what Twitter was Josh Allen didn't realize it Kevin Hart, beginning didn't realize it. I can just say whatever I want to and part of it is when you're a comedian, and you're an athlete, and you're you're an entertainer. You're not really as beholden to things as you are. And you're an athlete because I. Could say what I want 'specially comedians because that's what they do some jokes are in bad taste, but they do that for a living. So you don't realize it. Okay. I need to be beholden to anybody. But then the stuff comes back, and you go, oh, it's really come back to bite me in the ass realize that Twitter what you tweet is a is a public record of who you are what you're saying. And the number one thing you should do if you're famous go back and scrub that Twitter account. Maybe people have it already and they're waiting for you to be famous. But if you're not famous people on hold onto stuff go and take a whole day, go through all your tweets scrubbed, the bad ones. Get rid of the bad ones. Go through everything just keep going, however long. It is go to Starbucks sit in front get that delete button ready and get rid of anything. You think I don't want this taken the wrong way? Someone might come back and see this get rid of it. But yet because there's still keeps happening and happening sports and people didn't pay attention happen to Kevin Hart. People are still going to let this go. And you're going to see this controversy continue with different people Jewish statements that he put up on Twitter just a little while ago. I made the choice to step down from. This year's Oscars. This is because they did not want to be a distraction on night that should be celebrated by so many talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past. I'm sorry that I hurt people. I'm evolving and to continue to do. So my goal is to bring people together not terrorists apart, much, love and appreciation d the academy. I hope we can meet again. So there's his apology. So there's this apology on twentieth. Politics, LG LGBTQ community. That's that's kind of getting that finally from him. So hoping that this turns the page and maybe doing it now. Maybe they wait a week and say, you know, what? No, we he apologizes. This is that and he could go in and host the Oscars again. But at the very least it's a wakeup call for everybody about not pressing send her we're gonna talk about Herm Edwards for thirty years. Don't press send one of the wisest things he ever said he says, he's a garage. I went back and tremendous job at the college level that was mocked and derided when it happened in. In a very avid says one of the most intelligent things related to our social media world you play to win the game. And don't press. He can make T shirts for days. Yeah. That's you. Gotta do. That's odd. Kevin hart. That's the t shirt I wear the next couple of days. So 'cause you know paparazzi is gonna fall around now because all the stuff that don't press N t shirt. He's in Australia. I believe right to win the game Twitter at how about a Fresca, Mike, it's Molin dome. The Jason Smith show with. Fred Mike, carbon coming up next

"It's a weird thing, which is I have this theory that most comedians got into this business, not because there were funny, but because they wanna get up. Pretty pure and simple. Just didn't wanna. Fuck and get up in the morning, Chuck it. I can memorize a couple of jokes play couple of nightclubs through my thing and get my and I don't have anything. I don't really particular have anything to say, just don't have to get up in the morning now. I think nor McDonald is funny, shit. I also think he's nuts and also, no, he's super flaky. And there's this other part about this business where I don't know what the creative gene and the flight gene. I don't know why they love each other so much, but they do. I mean, actually Kimmel is the only guy I know who is super creative and super unfluffy. He would have been in that plane that went into that tower an hour before anyone else got yet at play. Yeah. Yeah, it's it's rare. It's rare. And can I say this, maybe bringing it full circle? You say you have difficulty sleeping, you have to unwind unwind. At night because your brain is a drill that spins at higher rpm than other people's brains. I mean, there's more. Here's what I'm saying. In take this spirit, which is this is going to be a compliment. Seth MacFarlane. You have a brain that is probably more evolved that probably moves faster. The probably has more running through it in the course of a day. Then the guy wearing the wife beater with the forementioned spaghetti stain on it. So I think you're smarter than both of us, but, but you know, rail. Combined combined. Put together, I think maybe you are. No, I absolutely not put on academic probation. LA foul ecologists, no way that I'm smarter than Cessna your brain those a file cabinet that just like you can access in almost Android like fashion, you can access whatever information you need. And then and then process it into into whatever in into a wholly new opinion on whatever topic we're discussing. Thank you. It's it's mainly just bullshit. So I don't have to read. What it was, but your brain and I appreciate the compliment, but I will deflect it back to you again, your brain probably moves faster than most people's brains. Thus, when it comes time to shut down at the end of the work day, it takes a longer time to cycle down than a brain that's been plotting along at a slower pace. So you take longer to shut down. Thus it is more difficult to ramp up in the morning. Yeah. Yeah. You know what? I never thought of like that. That's a perfect. Yeah. So it's like it's like everyone else's brain. And again, it's not just Seth McFarland it's a lot of people that are highly intelligent. Their brain is going at ten thousand RPM's the average factory worker over in Flint, Michigan. There's going at twelve hundred rpm. They are the people that fall asleep in front of the TV set every night in their work genes. Whereas Seth has to..

"Yes, and we'll we'll, we'll come back to music in a second, but I love the story and I love the Seth MacFarlane story, and I love how he began. And I was, I know a lot about it, but I don't know if everyone listening knows all about your story since we have time and we have no commercials and we have nothing but boost to kill. Let's just go way back because I mean everyone knows you as the sort of genius entrepreneur now, but let's let's go back to the early days back in Boston or wherever you grew up. How did it go where you your nerd in high school and junior high. Well, let's see. I grew up in Connecticut, and I was I was, let's say it was a nerd, but I was I was getting there. I was. I was what I was obsessed kind of hole up in my room and and you know, try and make these films and try and figure out how you know animation was done because there was no information on it at that time. Right. And you would draw would do voices. Yeah. Yeah. I think my my classmates and schoolmates just they, they weren't quite sure you know whether to look over my shoulder and watch or beat the shit out of me. Sure what what it was that I was trying to do. And did you have a lot of friends? I did. I had had my my group of friends like everybody put. I, you know, I wasn't. I by no means was was an a Lister. And in what in what was the plan? I mean, when you got out of high school, what did you think you would be doing and where you studying music as well? At the time I was well when I got out of high school. I was. I thought it was gonna work for Disney. That was that was at the time sort of the pinnacle of what you could do in animation. And you know, it's funny because I couldn't be doing anything that's more radically different now than fry. But no, I wasn't. I mean, it wasn't studying. I had taken a lot of theater taking, you know, some heads a musical training, but it wasn't my focus. But did you know whether you were going to be a behind the scenes guy or in front of the scenes guy? No, no. I kinda left that. You know out in the up in the air. And I, you know, when I graduated from college, I was I had majored in animation, and I was all set to applied to and gotten into the the Boston conservatory of music in their musical theater, grad program, and I was gonna go there. And then at the last minute I got this offer from hanna-barbera to go work for them. So I ditched the grad school. What year are we talking about ninety five. So ninety five, you you, Where'd you go to college? The Rhode Island school of design and providence and the characters. I'm.

"Entire archive, get it on everybody. Seth MacFarlane. One of my favorites is joined us this evening or this morning or this afternoon. Whenever it is you're listening to this program and all policy is in advance because we're both drinking. Sorry about that. Well, Seth said he liked Jack Daniels and I said, so do I? So we poured ourselves a couple of high balls and we're going to let the well the. Action and comedy will ensue. Seth, I've known for many years and always like the point this out in front assess, but not one of these Johnny-come-latelies with the family guy and also Merican data. Although I don't know if they have any Johnny-come-latelies with the American dad's since it was a later show, but I dug the family guy early and often you would you would pump us when we were on the verge of cancellation and speaking of that. And yeah, I just thought it was really out there really funny, really interesting. I mean, I sort of felt the same way about the family guy that I felt about the Simpsons when I saw the Simpsons I was like, wow, what the fuck? This is cool. I can't believe getting away with this. And then all of a sudden it went away, which is essentially I blamed myself because anytime whether whether it's on television show or musical artists, whoever it is, whenever I go, wow, this person's really good. It's like they, they fall off the end of the. Could you really fast become a huge cold plan. With that be possible. I have that whole above nice and I've tried the reverse pox theory, but it doesn't work. It's sort of it's that sort of thing. Like when there's a buddy of yours who he's a his full-time loser. So bets on the Super Bowl and you go, all right. I'm just going to take the opposite team as team. He been on, then you ruin it by nounce that outlawed. Yes, I could do with just a little less cold play in my life is well. We don't need all that brooding. We get it. They have turtlenecks there. Everyone in the band is equal. Nobody wants to be a star. Here's a waiter. Sure. You're not going to be a star stopped coming out with records. Back off a little bit and for God's sake speak up, speak up. Yeah, no. And I, you know, it's weird. I'm glad you bring up cold play because I feel this way about a lot of art in society which is cold play is by no means a bad ban. They're just fucked out. In the sense that look pizza in porn is awesome, but after a week of pizza and porn, if I got up on Friday morning and someone said, guess what you're having breakfast, I'd be like a Nuff with the pizza and the poor. I need a little break. Right, right. Do you feel that way about colds fan this I get so many problems. Everything has to be said in this domain boys will set you're, you're pretty accomplished musician. I mean, you play the piano. You do lots of musical stuff. It's strong influence in your life. So do you see these guys and go? They're not where they would be. I I have. I have the the. I'm kind of an Akron anachronism when it comes to monitor music and and my beef is that there's, there's just not everything starts to sound the same. You got, you got to retard and drummer when Sinatra was singing. He was backed up by forty or fifty guys to get a variety of. Sounds that now you just, you just can't get, you know, the plane, the same three chords over and over. I sound like my grandfather now, but but they had arrangements. These big arranged orchestrations is is a is a lost art it just though there's no need for it anymore..
