"The buckle. You are about to enter the draws cast podcast, your host, author and motivational speaker, Jeff drope says he will transport you through the world of motivation and leadership. Oh, is keeping an eye on having some fun, too. Sometimes with guest other times, just Jeff either way, you will leave better equipped to succeed than when you came in here, he is the dress. Jeff trysofi. Hello. Thank you. Author motivational. Speaker trainer coach video blogger podcast, Geoff draws TAOs ski welcome back to the draws gas podcasts, speaking of motivation and leadership. I hope that you have enjoyed the first two sections or the first two episodes of my webinar, the five secret traits that make leaders great. And I also teed those five secret traits for you, and the second part of this series when I gave you the first two traits out of the five that make leaders great. So to end this three part series, we will talk about number three number four, and number five in those traits and will tie a bow on it at the end, and make it real nice and talk about the first two topics in this webinar and then reiterate to you the imports of the special offer that a half for you. Moving forward here into twenty nineteen. So thank you so much. Look forward to getting feedback as always on my podcast and we will again tie the sup at the end so take care. And we'll talk to you again shortly. The third one is understanding that people are different in their personalities different in the way that they go about their business. However, in the workplace, you need to treat them equally you need to treat them different because they have different types of personalities, but ultimately, they need to understand what the rules are. The workplace are unique to understand what they are you need to treat people equally, and that fashion. So. Different, but equal the effective leader today understands it every person, while needing to follow the same rule structure the rules of the workplaces is different. The individual needs to be managed and lead based on their individual personality traits. So if I'm the type of leader of that says, this is the way that it's going to be, regardless of your personality type, you will fail because you need to treat people different based on their personality types. So there are several different personality tight tests that are out there, the one that I'm most familiar with in the one that I think, is the most accurate is this one called desk in disc lays out before different quadrants with four different main types of personalities. And if you were to do this test, I guarantee you would be blown away by the amount of accuracy, that this particular test the disc test personality test does, and the accuracy of it is amazing. So the four main quadrants of personalities are here. We'll start with the one in the upper left and that is dominant s-, and when you have a dominant personality, emotion is not a strength of yours. Empathy is not a strength of yours, but being direct being firm, being strong willed forceful in ultimately. Being results driven is your main personality type. Now over to the right of the dominance is the influence type of personality. This person is outgoing and who's iast optimistic highly spirited lively likes to be in front of people likes to be the life of the party likes to be the person that brings energy to wherever they go because it just comes so naturally to that. Then in the lower left is the conscientious type of person. And if you've ever worked with somebody who's an analytical, somebody who loves to dig into the numbers, this is the person for you. Or maybe you are like this. So you are analytical year reserved so you don't show a lot of motion your precise you like things exact and you like it to the the ultimate precision, what whatever your definition of position is, you're also very private. So that reserved in private does go hand in hand and you love the system, you love the process more than anything you love. Whatever that process is to get to the final Bill now the last person the last personality, type that is, is steadiness. And that person is even tempered accommodating. A patient humble and tactful, so humbleness comes easy to the steadiness person. This person is somebody who loves for everybody to get along. They are the most emotional type of person out of these four personality quadrants. So how do these personality types work in tandem before? I do that. Let me give an example in the celebrity world of each type of these personalities. So a dominant type of personality would be somebody like Robert deniro. Hey, you talking to me? You talking to me. That's my Robert deniro imitation. Sorry, but Robert deniro has a very dominant personality now over on the right hand side were influenced goes out going through Ciaston Will Smith is somebody who definitely fits into that I- style, and the lower left corner of the conscientious the analytical precise person Bill Gates falls into that type of personality and then the steady everybody wants to get along, Ted Danson. And that may be somebody that some of you aren't familiar with potential. Manson was the bartender. Cheers for those of you who are a little bit older. But now he's on a show where he's, he's been out of comedy show. He's a doctor. And I think he's in a drama series now he's a doctor headed chance. The need Ted Danson. But two years ago, it was just a chance meeting in the airport in Los Angeles. But he is that stead steady. Humble quiet, nice person, nice person. That's exactly how he is. So the way that this works, and then we'll move on. But let's take the dominant personality type your nephew. Look at the at the flow of this to the in the upper right next to dominance. There's influence and then right below the dominance is the cunty inches. The dominant type of personality is going to get along better, with the influence, and the conscientious person rather than the steadiness person in the network's all the way around these quadrants. So the personality type that is directly across from that particular personality type. Is the one that they won't get along with very well. So as an example, like bring the whiteboard up a little bit here. Hang on police for just a moment. Here comes the whiteboard dominance is not going to get along with the steadfast the steadiness person. The conscientious person is not gonna get along well with the influential person on the other hand, again, dominance is going to get along with conscientious person, and the influential person, and you can do that throughout the entire cycle here, the entire for quadrants. So that's how that works. Okay. So thank you for indulging me on the whiteboard there for just a second and. Ultimately, I went off a little bit on this, but you need to treat people differently because they have different personality types. But they need to be treated, equal in the workplace, and please understand decision makers leaders that. There are personalities that are going to clash in. It's good for you to understand which ones are going to class just as much as you know, the ones that are gonna get along. Okay. I don't we go being open minded, number four. The number four secret is being open minded being closed minded means status quo. Means that you like things the way that they are that you're not willing to evolve. And I'm gonna pop back up here now that you've seen this disc Logan open minded, people have black and white tendencies, and that is everything is concrete. There's a right way. There's a wrong way and I'm not not willing to change that. So. Those are non open minded people. I do apologize for that. But open minded people are curious people, so even if a decisions been made or near decisions, but made they're still open to hearing your ideas because it may change their mind and they just want the best outcome. Open minded, people do sometimes open minded, people are viewed as indecisive, but that is not. People who are open minded, just value, everybody's opinion. It's really as simple as that. All right. On we go, and then number five is being a steward understanding that your place in this leadership role in this company is only going to be occupied by you for short, periods of time so you can either burn it to the ground so to speak, and do what you can't to advance and succeed, then leave it in rubble or you could make a better position. And leave it better than where you left it. So an example of stewardship and my world. Comes from a former boss of mine, who's passed away recently. His entire goal was to not only be a great leader. But to leave his position better than when he left it, and while he left us quickly and abruptly, and too soon he definitely left his legacy within our the organization that, that I've worked for. And, and he was a steward leader for sure if there ever was going to be a definition stewardship is acting upon the understanding that leadership is a temporary role which is out lasted by the lifespan of an organization. Sorry, I tend to do this. When I get talking as I jump ahead a slider too, because it's in my head. So I just explained that to you. Now it's broken down into three different types of stewardships of the first one is personal stewardship. So as a leader. You wanna make sure that somebody on a personal level is enjoying their job is growing as a person at work, but also growing as a person outside of work. So I'm an individual level stewardship focuses on promoting wellbeing for each person within the group team or organization. You don't have to change. Everybody's life at the company organization that you work for. But if you have a team do your best to improve the life of those people individually. The second one is team. Stewardship leaders are stewards at the team level, whatever they worked to ensure individuals within the organization interact well with each other again, I jumped ahead a little bit. But team stewardship. Is exactly that your team your group grows. But ultimately, you want them to get along, if they get along, then that synergy in that group really takes off and the thought processes of the ideas, the brainstorming just goes in and great things can happen within that group. So team stewardship is of the utmost importance as while. Lastly in the stewardship round corporate stewardship. Now, this is really for people who lead large organizations or organizations that leave a big footprint and the community in which they work and do business. So give back. Back to the communities in which you work and do business is really corporate stewardship is. Now I have belonged to a. Trainers organization, a nationwide trainers organization for some time. And one of the things that they do is whenever there is a the conference and whatever city that, that this organism she goes into they spent time making the community in which the conferences, as being held better. So as an example little over year ago, there was a conference in San Diego, California. So the organization get together with, with the city leaders and decided that the best way to give back to that community was to clean up the beach. There was a chunk of beach, they're right on the Pacific. What a way to give back to your community than to walk around the beach and pick up trash. But that's what the city leaders that would be the best way to be able to do that. So giving back to the community in which you live and do business. And there are many. Any if you're in an organization that. As big footprint, in particular city that you work in. Do business. You probably do some kind of giving back no matter where you're at at least you should because that's the way things are these days. Let's give back. Let's make the place. That's make our world better wherever were living business. So ultimately, why is there this paradigm shift? Why have we moved from these traditional styles of leadership into these were calling them nontraditional now? But soon, they will be the nor. But right now, we'll still call him nontraditional. It's because of the way that people are being raised the time the times that we live in a really causing us to need to be able to do that. People are so much more mobile now and they can jump from job to job more than they ever did before. So here's a point for you. You see these gen-x gen y gen Z the previous generation before that were the baby boomers, now, the baby boomers were all always known as the ones who are going to get a, a job and stay with it, as long as they can because they just appreciated the fact that they had a job. But even those folks between the ages of eighteen and forty four had changed changed jobs eleven times now, there isn't as much data for the gen-x winds e but logic would dictate that sense. Our world is more mobile that, that people are changing their jobs. So in order to keep that from becoming a real real issue, which kind of is already is to create this holistic environment where people really love the work that they do, but also that they are growing as people as well. So here the generations broken down here that are in the workplace now for the most part, gen-x nineteen sixty five nineteen eighty gen Y nineteen Eighty-one to ninety six and Jenny nineteen ninety seven until current roughly generations are about fifteen years and don't get hung up on the names. Don't worry about what the next generation is going to be named because it will just happen. These names and numbers happen. A generically organically, that is not generic organic at may be a contest may be something where somebody put something on social media, and all of a sudden he gets picked up on a we'll call the next generation this. So I don't think the next generation is going to be a, but who knows. We got x y and z now. All right. So there are commonalities between those three generations that I just gave you a, there are continually more mobile. They are more connected or disconnected depending on how you want to look at it. There are more connected technologically speaking, but perhaps on a humane or human level. Maybe we're not as connected as we used to be think about a restaurant think about a group of people out to eat. I'll guarantee you more than half. Those people at any given time are on their phones. Facebook, Instagram YouTube, whatever it would be they're going to be on their devices, and they're going to be communicating with people on their devices rather than the people that are right. Frontal. But more commonalities these people move more from job to job. And because of that is why we are developing that whole holistic approach. They want to be heard. They want to be respected regardless of age and they want their leaders not only to lead them, but they want him to be coached. They wanted to be developed, they want him to be transformed. That's what people are looking for when they get into the workplace these days. We need to adapt and be able to do that. So let's talk about takeaways the three big takeaways that I wanted you to go away with here today is first of all, those at least those items that we talked about, in the nontraditional raum, that the conscious transformational, the servant leaders, those are the type of leadership methods in ways that we're going to so. If they're not being applied into your workplace that, perhaps it would be a good idea. Maybe introduce that into your workplace, then we talked about the five secrets the five personality traits that people have so stewardship was five and. Being open minded was for treating people equally, but different. Empathetic was number two. And then, again, being humble was number one, so and then the ships, we talked about why the shift people want to be transformed. They want a more holistic approach when it comes to their places of employment. So those are the big takeaways that I want you to take away from today. Right. Okay. I got a special offer here. Folks. Book me for speaking of that, or training session that will occur between today and July, I get a hold of maybe tween now and July first and you will get fifty percent off of any speaking training fees, and material, such as training, your books fifty percent. That's a deal. I kinda regret half off. Now tell you the truth. I really don't. I'm just kidding. I just wanna get out and see you guys. That's, that's why I'm looking at it the way that I am here.

What Were Watching: ZEP Zoeys Extraordinary Confession and Veronica Mars The Girl Next Door

"Hello and welcome to round two of the parenting roundabout podcast and Catherine Lecco and in here with Terry Morrow. Hello usually on this podcast. We talk about parenting issues. But once a week -Tarian I liked to get together to discuss. Tv movies books and other entertainment topics. Because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting change this week. We are continuing with our watch of the series Veronica Mars and the accompanying podcast Veronica Mars investigations. But we're also watching Zoe's extraordinary playlist. So first let's talk about Zoe's extraordinary confession so this one had some you know deep conversations deep thoughts but it did have some singing dancing. The actual launch. No I you know I loved that number and I like Max quite a lot and I'm rooting for the Guy. But you just broke up with somebody like an episode ago. Should you be flash mob? Is your best friend with an. I love you confession. Yeah I don't know how much time we are to think how many movie nights have gone between the past episode in this one but that seemed weird. Yeah I think as you've got in deeper into the episode. Did they did want you to think that a fair amount of time had well not really because they talked about Simon's party like hey it just happened. That's true and they're just now getting somebody to help the day. Ad Right from the scary no nonsense nurse to the fun nurse. The nurse that makes chocolate shakes and plays poker. There might have been a third third choice there but okay it is a TV show. And you know if you're picking somebody to take care of your. You don't really want them to do it better than you do on it. So the guy they wound up with should be just fine and it helps. If they're a guy who looks pretty strong right definitely wants again. Lots lots went on in this episode. Because it's an hour long episode. I guess Lifan Joan and you know the idea. They came up with. I gotta think of if it was that easy do it would either have been done already or there is a reason why all the reason why is that? It's not be to keep that I. It's sort of like seeing inside people's having them sing to you and it's also isn't it? Kinda like Google glass and that. Yeah that that's thinking it's like this must It's like the earbud. I WANNA put into my children so I could tell them. What would you do that? Every given situation it's called this word now. Moyo they go to mow mow. Prove that this thing. Zoe is saying is really real but most really just taken always worked for a two right HE S. I guess Guest so he did know what was going on that time right. I think but still a perceptive friend could probably have known that something was going on in for all but so he has done perceptive until this happened and less true that alone should tip Mexico. I think it's just that Mo- zoe has just been telling everything all Herod's so and Mo has has faith again that's right. I thought I actually thought it was going to be a cliffhanger at towards the end yes where she says. I'm GonNa do what I should've done arrived on how well this is this episode and then I looked like fifteen minutes. Oh that's too bad. I would've been happy to stop right there before for our league club. Developments came along all comment that this is. We would prefer a half hour Sitcom. Yes Oh we should mention. I don't know if you've got a chance to listen but If you listen to the good place podcast obviously that shows over but they periodically toss something onto their feed. And this week it was. Let's see if we can help our fellow. Nbc Show Zoe's extraordinaire playlist. And they had 'cause they had ted Danson on and they want the about Ted Danson and the good place but there was since he's married to marry Sieben. There was on rotation Zoe's extraordinary playlist and I had to. I have to say that. Neither Ted Norbert Evan Jackson was raving about. Oh dear was it at the beginning when they were talking about it or they talk about it later. He talked about it more. I think I think they may have talked about You know I mean Ted was great. You Know He. He obviously MMA. He loves his wife and he's right. You know willing to promote her show but definitely sounded more like in for Mark Evan Jackson that he was just like doing this because he works in BC. Will maybe. I'll have to fast. I started listening to that and as much as I love the good place you know there was always the problem. With the podcast about it being Yuka Great. We are and I could tolerate that when the show was on and I was getting you know I was enjoying the show and I was getting some inside information from the podcast but just now all these weeks later all by itself had to bail early on have nothing but goodwill for Mark Jackson and Ted Danson. But this is done now so shows a stop you're taking a little erratic stack of whether it's over yet over and we don't go back enough with the victory labs okay Well I did learn from it that Mary. Steenburgen doesn't play the guitar but she does play the accordion. I heard that part. Yes a fun of us and also that it on the place. When she appeared as Michael's Guitar Teacher Dat the idea. What's that they were going to fall in love which I didn't figure from watching except that you knew that they were married in real wide and I guess that is meant to tip saw that all the short dance. We need but apparently good place watchers. Were used to doing a lot of work enough short him for me because I missed it. That's why they have the podcast right. I guess we do still needs to be told me as maybe I should go back in and drag it out of the trash. Listen to it. I wouldn't mind a podcast about Zoe's extraordinary playlists to explain everything that's going. Mandy Moore needs to have a podcast talk about all the stuff but I did very much. Enjoy the dancing and singing in this one. Yeah I could have done without leave singing to Joan but otherwise yes yeah. That's true and and Mary Steenburgen may be a terrific accordionist but she's not such a good lip singer so and also it wasn't necessary. It was a weird song and it was amazing because then though it was like mom duty something like she could have I felt like she was going to say that. Anyway and a mom brought them in the other room to talk to them. So yes you needed something like there was no yeah. There's no now see into her brain. At that time. It was clear karate steak yes. That was an unnecessary number. But when you have sixty minutes to fill or forty two or whatever yeah I would feel better about this episode. I didn't know that the next episode was going to be her extraordinary glitch. Which sounds like things were not going to be doing? Maybe she'll sing. Navy ballot will be that she'll be revealing her feelings by some. How will that would be good her? Become Fun Ryan. Will she be dancing? Also hope so. Will there be down please like the day or two guys actually higher flash. Mobs just until girls they love them. I mean I could see a proposal right. I could see a prominent mutation but for I love. You seems risky. Yes and he knew it was risky. Well I don't know maybe he didn't didn't if he had three rehearsals with people. How much is he paying those dancers? Probably kind of ally that could be. Yeah so I don't know that seems seems a little over the top Max little media Just just hang. Our podcast is sponsored today.

The title of the episode is the girl next door and the girl next are happened to be Jessica chastain. Baby Jessica chastain yourself to this was I looked on. Imdb this was her second credit. Oh my gosh. So she's looking very young and very pregnant and it turns out very sort of impulsive. And she doesn't want next door actually. She lives she. Would you have recognized that as just Jessica chastain of her name had not been in the credits? Yeah I think as I saw her name go by and said Whoa and then there she is yeah. She's pretty young distinctive. I guess I don't know. Yeah I I mean I guess back on see the credit exactly But yeah so so. This was kind of a you know this was a tough one. I guess I guess many of them are but it was also not very good. Yeah I mean it was just you know Veronica was really like endangering herself. Yeah quite a bit and she lives making poor choices she was and you know you. Kinda knew that. The creepy boyfriend of Jessica chastain had to be a red herring bright. There's no way that he was going to be the bad guy Because it was just too obvious to As as we've discussed with. But he was still very unpleasant. Watch and additive. I wanted the boss to be a bad guy. 'cause he was so smarmy yeah but as they talked about on the podcast. I mean it just kind of it. They dropped that bomb. You know this that. The stepfather had rape heard like two minutes before the episode was over. There was just no no way to really get into discussing it or you know thinking about the the terrible impact that that would have on someone. It was It was all sort of viewer spills to infer it from everything that had happened before and that was uncomfortable. Yeah it was just. It was oddly paced and just seemed poorly thought out. And it's like oh well we need a mystery. So it's you know we last week we were talking about all these students of Neptune high that appear for one episode and are never seen again right and here. It was the neighbor we've never seen before. I've never seen them outside of the apartment. I don't think not never had the impression that they had neighbors. So there's the neighbor we'd never seen before and then the teacher we'd never seen before we ever seen that teacher. I don't think so no. I wouldn't us again. He and Jane Lynch are going to be running the yeah detention for once used characters. We gotta stop doing that as well. Maybe they don't but it's it's getting to be noticeable in humorous. Yes the way people just come out of nowhere. I mean as a again as they talked about on the podcast. Sort of the most fun of it all was weevil and Logan getting up to shenanigans over those boys. Yeah let's let's destroy books and a teacher's car. Yeah remind me of when I was in high school a girl that we knew had a tiny little car and some of the boys just picked it up and put it on the other side of a fence. So that's sort of what I thought they were going to do with this tiny little car. But no now the hell Instead I'm further rate of of metal shop work to get it there right where the flag pole returns. Yes whether Logan confessed because he wanted credit or because he just is becoming a good guy right he developed. I gotta believe that was mostly weevil that that seemed to fall more into we will skill set than Logan's I dunno Brana Mars investigations podcast. Which was way more fun than the episode this week? They seem to feel that he was doing it just because he was. You know one to get the credit. I kinda felt like he was. It was another tiny baby step in the direction of decency for that character. Yeah I've I've got a long way to go but I felt like he did have a small twinge of conscience rights of not wanting we will to take the fall entirely like we all turquoise no fun without legal so let's go. Yeah BUT WE HAVE NOT NOTICED. Had An opportunity notice in all this time that we will have a lily tattoo in a place that while you know not gonNA show of a t-shirt is not exactly hidden you know if the guy's going swimming people are going to see his tattoo so that seems like where did that come from Like the never. Before seen students we have attached just came out of our way and allegedly now. Suddenly we will has a sister named Lillian. No he really doesn't and so and you know it's just more and more and more hints in that direction of. You know I won't. I won't say what. Helsmman said on her podcast. But y'all should go. Listen what people are. Supposing Weevil was involved with so and this whole all the flashbacks in this one. I assumed that Duncan dumped. Her after lily was killing me to her dad was investigating. Isn't that what we have been? I led to believe yes. Yes that is exactly what I thought and so I was. I kept thinking. Are these flashbacks or is this ghost. Lily he I was kind of hard to tell she was a little kind of you know of a couple of times. I thought I saw her flicker but no I think we we were to believe that was flash right. Yeah that was a piece of information that yeah. I think. There's some Red Connie going on I think somebody in the writer's room said Hey what about So okay leaving US wondering speculating what it was. The Dunkin found out that dumped Veronica without any explanation. Don't like any direction this is going now. Seems to change direction quite frequently so possibly medium icy ticket user. Wait it out. It'll go someplace else. But on the podcast they're kind of They say that they don't do spoilers for future episodes but this way too many like hints and assumptions that things that really have not been made clear on the actual right. If you're I mean. I think that they've usually been I mean. I think that we were made to go When Keith said that about raising another person's child although I don't think that if the conclusion was the same as the one they were drawing from it that you would say it like that. I don't think a person who did that with say at that way. They could say it shows how much he loves her. And then leave it at that. So that makes me think that it's not what they are supposing right and you know mathematically it wasn't wouldn't have happened while they were high school sweethearts anyway. So I guess we have to imagine that Jake End Leeann had a recurring thing all the way up to the point where Veronica idead her license plate which is like twenty five years later. I guess we will see where this is going but I I hope they're not tipping their hands by surmising based on evidence. But let me just just encourage you never to Google the name of any of these characters. 'cause Google auto complete is quite the spoiler. I will avoid that. I will also say that I e stroke of all the many disturbing things in this episode and of course there were some horrifying disturbing things lady dressed like the fifties graduated in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. I graduated in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. I would like to lodge a protest. Yes well. It's true that in the seventies we did have fifties dress up day quite frequently. We didn't wear it outside of school x. Number of years later stop it yet that my husband and I both looked at each other and said this is not and he's even older than me. Yes yeah protest. Though I mean the seventies goodness knows had fled I I understand that you're going to be mocking the pictures in the yearbook. But really you know in two thousand four. This was son in two thousand four redressed. Pretty much like people in two thousand really. We did although I getting to enjoy the wardrobe. Criticisms Need Veronica. Mars educations because really some of her outfits yes on the Kobe's use Vanden in our time on everyone's close. But but it was better than the seventies. The seventies was particularly uncomfortable era for fashion. I do not deny and I do enjoy the Recurring feature on the podcast of the lawyer who comes on. Yes. Suzanne One of the show and she comes on the explains all the crimes that Franca committed. And yes when we finish this episode. My husband was particularly irate. She broke into his house. You should call the police and the guy at the store should call them the beliefs and this and that and I'm like sometimes you have to let art. Yes well we will let it flow over us for another week because next week. We're going to talk about the seventh episode of both of these shows. Zoe's extraordinary playlist. The episode is called Zoe's extraordinary glitch and the Veronica Mars episode is like a virgin. That will be it for our Brown to today. Please subscribe to our parenting roundabout podcast.

Toolbox For Life // Heaven is NOT For Everyone (Part 3)

"Everybody this is keith lee. I'm the founding senior pastor of celebrate church in sioux falls south dakota and this is our podcast i just want to say thank you for joining us and it is my prayer that this week's message would truly encourage you enjoy. Have your bibles one invite you go to john. The book of john chapter fourteen. And we've been in a series if you're a guest talking about a toolbox that we all carry around in life. It's a tool box. That is all about vision and values. And i'll say it again and again and again but everybody every day when you get up every moment all the time you're functioning out of this toolbox that you're carrying your all carrying one. The toolbox matters to you because the toolbox is the vision. Bhai which you live. It's why you carry it. It's what you believe and deemed to be important. The tools that you have within the box are your values hence again why you carry this toolbox you wanna keep it closed you because this is what you if you will make all your decisions all your choices. Everybody in this room has a vision for their life. Why you do what you do. It's why you go where you go and everybody has values by which those decisions are made. It's what you see is important if you will the death of your heart and so we're walking through if you will when it comes to this church this family this body that god so died four of which i believe with all my heart that god did not die for you individually even though individually your sins crucified on the cross for the moment that you give your life to jesus you become a part of something corporately known at his church and we may disagree. I'm okay with that. But as the pastor of this church. I will die for that. The local church is the hope of the world. The church matters and so when people come up to me and they say well listen. You know i. I don't need to go to church to be a christian biblical heresy from my standpoint. You do not believe. The word of god god's word and therefore you do not govern it accordingly and therefore. It's probably not in your toolbox something that you value because i hear all the churches full of sinners welcome. That may be the brightest smartest thing you've actually said yes. It is the difference is we're here because we're willing to admit it and we're trying to do something about it if if i could say in that simplistic way but for you to neglect god's bride pawn its people. You don't even understand who christ really is vision and values. We all have them and your life is being governed according accordingly and i want to help you understand what the vision and values of this church is and so we began to talk about who jesus was what it really means to be in the example of christ that he saw people and to have is that he sees and actually care about the things that god cares about and then to do something about it because to care not do is not even to care at all and then we talked about what really matters fundamental questions that we need to ask in her lies. I'm not gonna give you those again. But now i wanna talk about the fact that heaven is not for everyone. I wanna say again. Heaven is not for everyone greatly concerns me because it seems to be in the american tradition that we've bought into some miss. That aren't true. And you see it in the moment of death. But i want to help you understand something about it. I read about a michigan couple. Who decided to go to florida to get away from the winner. Obviously there were very wise people. They plan to stay at the exact same hotel where they had spent their honeymoon thirty five years prior but in light of their hectic schedules they wouldn't be able to travel together so he left on thursday while his wife would fly out the very next day when he checked into the hotel room he discovered that they now have computers in the room so he decided to wife and email however without realizing it he accidentally lead off let left off a letter in her email address and hit send meanwhile somewhere in texas a widow had just returned from her husband's funeral. You see he'd been he'd been a pastor and die suddenly of a heart attack when she got home. She decided to check her email expecting messages from her family and friends when she read this message. She screamed and fainted. Instantly your husband rushed. Her son rushed into the room. Found his mother on the floor looked up at the computer screen and he read the following to my loving wife. Subject i've arrived date january seventeenth. Two thousand four here was the message. I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers in the rooms. Now so. I thought i'd send you an email. I just arrived in checked in and found that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow looking forward to seeing you hope. Your journey is is uneventful as mine was. Ps its stinking. Hot down here heard someone. Just say that's terrible for who i don't know if you've ever taken a word association test you know what i'm talking about. It's where you're given a word and then you're supposed to say the very next thing that comes to your mind like if i say the word hot you might say cold. If i say apple you might say pie. If i say house you might say home. If i say congress you privacy criminal but but but what word or words would come to your mind and this is important if i said the word heaven. What if i said the word hell. I want to think about that for a moment because the good news is that most people believe that there is a heaven. Most people believe it. Unfortunately the problem is most of it think of it like the widow. Douglas in mark twain's adventures of huckleberry finn who described heaven as all you do is go around all day with a harpen sing forever and ever and ever and then the movie world come along and may confuse us even more for example in the tv series the good place happens depicted as some sort of utopia where angel ted danson. It's now ready. Having a problem okay allows only the good people to come in which is very interesting. Because of the first season's final episode you discover will quickly that ted danson is not the angel leading the good people in he's actually of the devil and it's not even the utopia you think of in the first place. How about the movie. Defending your life have betrayed as an eternal fun factory where you're always happy have amazing superpowers and can do whatever you want when you want now. One of the good things is you can eat all the carbs you want. Because there's no calories in heaven and all of god's people said okay. I could go on and on. Tv in the movie world and and things that we subscribe through and the conversations. We have what heaven is that. There's a problem almost everything that i've heard from the lips of people displayed upon the television or a movie screen or even read in a book are not biblical. None of them are scriptural. And yet how many of us have bought into it. What heaven is not. And to that that i want to speak i think charles spurgeon has it best when he says the day when we meet in heaven and we shall see how little we actually knew about it on earth. There's a lot that we don't know about heaven. But i'm gonna tell you some things we better know right here. Now you're never going to experience it because heaven is not for everyone. I want to say that again. There's a lot of things we don't know. There's a lot of things that we bought into. There's a lot of lies miss. We've chose to believe none of them are true. There's a lot we don't know but there are some things we do know in. The bible is very clear. And i don't want to help you with your bibles i want you to go to john. Fourteen john fourteen and jesus is going to speak about heaven. He's going to talk about what forever really is. It's the opening line. I just find interesting. So if you've got your bibles again. John fourteen i'm beginning in the very first verse. Do not let your heart be troubled. Do not let your heart be troubled and yet if there is a subject the create so much disarray. Frustration confusion and concern i contend. It's the very word heaven. It's why played this word association. What comes to mind did. The two words can't wait. See death is an interesting thing when it comes to the human dilemma. Which i don't understand it. You start talking about death and people start to get very concerned but yet from the christian standpoint it's in death which is the final chapter in the page of sin turns and life now begins. Why do we fear the very gift. That god's gonna give it as heaven it's not earth. What is it about us that were so wanting to be about what we know. Rather than who we know which is really an issue of faith. Is it not that our faith is only good by what we see is always going to get us in trouble but that faith is the assurance of what we do not see what we know is true because god promised it to be. So what is it about heaven. what is it about life. what is it about death. And yet jesus said do not let your heart you travel do not let your heart be troubled. He goes on to say. Trust in god as you trust in me. My father's house has plenty of room if that were not so what. I've told you my house has plenty of room. If that were not so would. I have told you that. I'm going to prepare a place. Think about that. If you want to circle words circle this word. Prepare if i go and prepare place for you. I will come back in emphatic reality. If i go. I will come back and take you to be with me. That also may be where i am by the way. Do you know what he's saying. He's not compartmentalizing. What you and. I think sometimes heaven is that somehow and i've even poorly told you this and for that i ask for forgiveness that somehow when we get to heaven gabriel's going to be up there leading worship and we're going to somehow be sitting in a room like this and every now and then jesus is going to come out and preach that somehow god is got a place in heaven. That's unbelievable castle. Probably the largest of homes and every now and then we might be invited to have a feast at his table or at least we may be out in public and he'll come walking by. We're like oh god. But jesus said was this. Heaven is really cool place. I don't know why your heart is be troubled. If i go i will come back for you that you will be with me that where i am. You will also be which means that in heaven. Jesus isn't someone we're going to meet. He's here he's here he's here. He's here he's here he's here he's here he's everywhere but i think that's the problem see heaven doesn't contain god god contains heaven and i think that's partly the problem because we liked control so much even when we think we've surrendered the troll. We like a place forever that maybe there is a moment. I can be away from god and sorta be okay with me which means you never got him in the first place. I will have no other gods before me. This is an incredible moment fly. Would you let your heart be troubled. I'm going to place. And when i come back and get you. You will always be in my presence. And i will be in your presence. That's great news i four. He says you know the way to the place where i'm going. But the thomas one of his disciples as lord. We don't know where you're going. So how can we know the way. Jesus answered i am the way i am the truth i am the life. No one comes to the father except through me and this may be a moment that some of you may all of a sudden do which really always crazy which is now. You don't agree with what i say. So therefore you gotta get up and let everybody know that you don't and then you gotta leave the room. I am not a universalist meaning. Every other region religious religion does not serve the same. God i do me to say it again. I'm not a universalist other religions. Don't serve the same god. Despite the back of former president one said we all serve the same god. No we don't. I could go on and on and help you with this. There is but one god who gave us one savior and his name is jesus christ and no one gets to heaven outside of him. If that would be true than what we're doing right now is beyond foolishness. The gospel is very clear. I am the way the truth. No one no one gets to the father except through me. No one jesus as savior. And jesus wants to be lord look what he goes on to say verse seven. If you really know me you will know my father as well from now on you do not know him or you do know him and you have seen him and then fill up says the lord show is to father and that will be enough for us. Talk about a crisis of decision and jesus says. Don't you know me even after. I've been among you such a long time. And i think these are the words not only for for philip for thomas for the disciples that day. I believe it's for the church. Now you don't know me yet to not know me how many of us in this room have been to the church camp of setting the church have the word of god setting and right in front of us and we still don't even know him. Do you not know ownby. Heaven isn't for everyone. Anyone who seen me as seen the father. How can you say show us the father and then these three words don't you believe don't you believe i'm going to give you three truce about heaven but it's the third one i'm going to play with for a while and we're going to dig into and i want you catch this real quick. Write this down. Heaven is a place. Say that with me. Heaven is a place or as the title of the famed movie states. Heaven is for real. It is for real. But here's the deal. And i don't want you to miss this. There is eternal life after death but just as true there is an eternal death afterlife. You choose heaven isn't for everyone. Someone said. Why would god send anyone to hell. Good god doesn't he never has. Unfortunately there's just a bunch of his creation that choose to go to hell. The choice isn't god's it's yours. He gave you the gift. It just sickens me and saddens me that. So many don't want it. I just don't want it. Heaven is a place. Here's second heaven is prepared place. Heaven is not just a place to prepare place. Jesus says i'd go and prepare a place. And you know what paul says paul says in. I corinthians two and no mine can imagine what he has prepared. He's not trying to freak you out. He's trying if you will feel you up. Here's the deal again. There's a lot of things we don't know heaven but one thing is crystal clear for me. This is a profit of tommy. Boy moment. it's going to be off. It's going to be beyond anything you can imagine. That's why it hurts my heart when people try to tell me what heaven is and the illness. Say it with a sense of of regret or disgust like oh my goodness. I don't know what you think. But paul says what in fiji you let your mind. Just go and go and go and you won't even get to where god's going to begin when jesus is i'm going to prepare a place for you whole all. Come on someone. Wet your pants in the name of jesus but it's this third truth. I don't want you to miss. It's the third one have an is a place. heaven is a prepared place. The heaven is a prepare place for prepared people. Heaven is a place. It's a prepared place but it's only for those who are prepared. See i know when greece strikes. And i want everybody to hear this and and someone we loved. Is we want hope don't we. We somehow want the pastor to to tell us what maybe we know isn't true we want them to provide the just. Maybe but that's not hope. Hope is not ever to the child of god of just. Maybe hope is an emphatic reality. That's why i don't think so. Many people get hope so we want to hope assures us that we're going to be with them forever. I have to tell you something as your pastor. I cannot make certain for you. What someone you loved chose to disregard. I can't give you false. Hope when jesus said i'm the way the truth and the life. They didn't want that i can't do that. Let me tell what i can do for you as your pastor. I can tell you some god truce that if you really want to know with certainty where our loved ones will be after they die. Here's the first thing you need to know. Heaven is not for good people boy. Was that quiet. Good people will not be in heaven. Heaven is not for good people. Good people will not be in heaven see. It doesn't matter how good you might think you've been or how good you may believe you can become. It will never be good enough. And yet i hear those words but he was such a good father. She was such a good mother. He was such a great guy. Can i tell you what the bible says or we look appear. Hell good people. Don't go to heaven. Good people go to hell so we don't wanna hear that. Did we see. I can take you to i. Corinthians thirteen passes that we always subscribe to marriage which maybe if we actually listened to it. It might actually change marriage but paul says what. I don't care if you could fathom all mysteries if you have not love hell. I don't care if you burn your life or get burned at the stake for the sake of what you think is right but you have not that love. Hell you give all that you have to the poor that you have not that love hell. Heaven is not good people. Just not please hear this. God doesn't grade on a curve. He graded on the cross. And no one is that god could means nothing to god and yet if you ask someone right now if you were to die right now and stand before god and he asked me why let you into my heaven. You know what the most common answer i hear as well. I'm gonna pretty good person. I mean it's not. Like i was a murderer or something interesting which creates the illusion that good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell. It's what the rich young ruler fought. You know the guy who went to jesus and you know what he said. What good must i do to inherit eternal life. That was his question. You know what jesus says. No one's good enough. No one is only god is good and yet. According to a recent survey ninety percent of american christians believe that being good enough is good enough to get them into heaven. Ninety percent of american christians believe and remember the only say this because they don't know what the word says they believe. That good enough is good enough to get into heaven. Here's where it gets really scary. Fifty three percent of that ninety percent believe they've earned it and they deserve it. I read that ten percent of today's church members can't even be found ten percent of the people who signed their names that i want to be a member of that church. They just disappeared. they haven't died. We don't know where they're at. Twenty percent of church members in america. Don't even attend church anymore. Twenty five percent admit to never praying and thirty five percent. Say they don't even read the bible forty percent tell us they never contribute to the church and truth be told they go on to say and i don't plan on it. Sixty percent of never given to a mission seventy percent of never served anywhere eighty five percent of never invited anyone to church and ninety five percent. Have anyone to jesus christ and yet the hundred percent of them. Just ask them expect to go to heaven and almost every time it'll be because they'll point at me not look up here. Who are you to judge. I don't you may want to do this. Who are you to judge. Why am i. You're measuring stick. And yet paul stated in fact we're all sinners every one of us in the same sinking boat with everybody else. There is no one who does good enough. Not even one. You might want to write this down. Our good is not good enough. It never will be and we better get this. The bible says enrollments three. We've all fallen short. And paul tells us the wages of falling short is death. Even the prophet isaiah wrote. Is there any hope for us. Can anything save us. No we're all sin infected sin contaminated are. Good is not good enough. We're grease stained rags. That's it heaven's not for good people. This one might shock you you ready. Here's the second thing. I want to tell you about heaven. Heaven's for bad people who will admit it happens. Not for good people good is understood. It's this idea. But i was more realistic. I tried to i tried. I tried and yet the bible says you're saved by grace. None of your works so matter how hard you try you will never get you to heaven by the way just so you know in james chapter two. You know what. James tells us. Go ahead try. He literally says this he says you need to understand something okay. Good enough won't get you to heaven but let me let me tell you something about you. The slightest of sin is enough to keep you out. He literally says james chapter to get all the law but when you mess up on the slightest to one you're as guilty as getting them all wrong. Good people. don't go to heaven bad people do. My dad always says that there's only two types of people on planet earth centers and centers saved by grace. Good people we all deserve hell but we don't want to admit that but it's when we admit that the things change i just told you no one can go to heaven who's ever since it's only those who are perfect without sin who can dwell in the internal presence of god which means what no one's getting in. Which by the way is exactly what god wanted. Did you know that he had to remove anything. And everything of that which we think we can do so we finally give up and let jesus do it. Only jesus can do jesus who became what you and i couldn't become and in him. We can have life eternal. But i think this is going to be difficult for us especially in a country. That's so good. Is he some years ago in a small rural church in england. A pastor notice that a former thief was kneeling at the communion rail alongside one of england's finest a supreme court judge who just happened to be the judge a few years prior that sentenced this the to seven years in prison. Here they are at the alter together after the service. The judge and the pastor went walking the judge spoke. I did you see who was kneeling beside me today. At the communion rail sure did so the pasture they continue walking on. What a miracle of gray said the judge all yes. It is said the pastor at the judge stopped. to whom are you referring. He asked why. The thief said the pastor which the judge said no. I was referring to me. Confused the pastor asked what do you mean you have to understand that. That thief knew how much he needed. He's me for you see. I was taught from childhood to be a good man to live a good life to be a gentleman to keep my word to say my prayers and go to church so i went to oxford got law degree and was called by the bar where eventually became a judge that tears began to run down. His cheeks watch this nothing. But the grace of god in the midst of all my pride in self righteousness could have ever gotten to understand that. I am no better in the eyes of god. Then that thief of whom i had sent to prison. There's only two types of people bad ones and bad ones who will admit they need. God's grace see heaven begins when we get this when we admit this when we die to ourselves and we pick up the cross of jesus and led him crucify us there and we begin to follow him taking on a new nature which is not our nature which is his nature. Heaven's not for good people heavens for bad people who admit it. But there's a third that i want you to get heaviness to be now. Heaven is to be now heavens. Not something that's coming. Heaven is right here right now to be lived out and if we really got this. Our lives would change dramatically. I don't know if you've ever heard these words as someone ever said this in your presence man. They're so kingdom minded. They're no earthly good. You ever heard those words there so heavenly minded. They're just no good. I want you to think about that. As of spending time with god is a bad thing. I couldn't disagree more for me. The bible says the more time i spend with my heavenly father. The more of the earthly blessing i will become for kingdom mindset has a kingdom impact and an earthly mindset has an earthly one. But here's where. I think we struggle. It's in the classic hymn rock of ages. Maybe you've heard it. The words go rock of ages cleft for me. Let me hide myself in the let the water and the blood from the wounded side which flowed and here comes be of sin the double cure be of san of a cure. Here it is saved from wrath to make me pure see. I think it's the first one of the double cure we like save from wrath the god so loved that he gave his cries that we don't get what we deserve. What we get a gift. That's incredible called eternal life right. But it's the second part of the cure that i think we miss. And what heavens all about to make me pure to walk in the example of christ that a new nature not a nature that's to come but nature. That's supposed to be in us here and now i think that's the problem. See the word pure means living right now with a heart that wants to be fully devoted to god. It's a want to become watch this. It's the want to become. The person of which heaven is four. I think therein lies the problem. Jesus said blessed are the pure in heart for they will see god. Isn't that what we want. Why are we acting like we have to wait. He's not a distant god. he's a personal relation. No god and the god whose there you ready for this is the same god. Who's here right now. There's just something missing heavens in my heart. Jesus didn't come to get heaven or you ready for this. Jesus didn't come to get into heaven. Which by the way is a good deal. Jesus came to get heaven into is. Isn't that what he said. Disciple said teach us to pray and he said what he said. The kingdom come my will vie will be done on earth right now as it is in heaven. We don't have to wait and we shouldn't wait. I'd say this if you're waiting it's probably because you don't get it yet. The cross of jesus was never meant to be some sort of life insurance policy. So you're covered. The cross of christ was god's life transformational strategy that in jesus we can live right now. Heavenly expectantly passionately. heaven is in mahar. Look what david prayed. This is in psalm. One thirty nine. And i don't want you to message. Because so many people read it and they failed to finish it. He said search my heart. Oh god he's literally in prayer. Remember this is the guy in the book of acts. The bible said this is a man. After god's own heart. This is david who committed adultery. This is david if you will who murdered the husband so he could keep the wife. This is david who tried to play that game and cover things up but when the prophet came and said you're the man you need to make things right. David didn't justify point the finger nor hide behind his credentials. His prayer was god's search me. Search my heart test me. See if there's any offensive. Way in me david san got. I want to be right with you now. I don't want to live like me. i wanna live like you. But then he adds these words and then the most significant words as he praised and says god's search me he says this and then lead me in the way of everlasting. I'll confess the bible. Says we confess our sins. He's faithful in just to what forgive them in cleanse us from all unrighteousness but why would he do that. Not just to save us from wrath but then he would put heaven in her heart. Can i just say humorously. Can i tell you the difference between now and then is when i'm in heaven i don't have to deal with you anymore. Okay anyway i just. You don't have to deal with me. Actually you do because i'm going to be there anyway and we're probably roommates so because god has a sense of humor why you made me leave me. In the way of everlasting. I heard it said but for god to do this to get heaven into us. He often have to beat the hell out of us that hell is. Can i tell you what some of that hell is. Our bad thinking about heaven. Heaven is not for good people. That's wrong thinking thinking heaven for bad people. There's no good us and some. You're struggling right now. Because see you're so fearful of what is to come. You can't get your eyes off the one cooking. Give you everything that you can imagine. You're gonna you're gonna get up. You may not even come back. Because you're going to a all this stuff i did. As if god's gonna go whole michael jordan do the greatest player of all time which that's god saying anyway. Just want to end the debate. But that's the that's the greatest. Oh my goodness god's gonna say have time. My jesus jumped up. He even come down as some. How on shark pinks going to walk in and go home. I hope they invest in me. You bring all the goal. God's go great brought more pavement. Thanks brigade gain the whole world lose your soul and the only enter that seoul. Jesus christ it will not be you and they'll be nothing you can ever do this. Good enough you will never by the way. Here's a wrong question. We said it. We use these words in the wrong words. I need ask for forgiveness. Scott isn't gonna go. What did you do with my jesus because whatever we did is not good enough. you know. he's going to ask you when you stand before him. Who are you. And you know what jesus said in matthew many on that day. We'll say didn't we do these great miracles. Didn't we do all this. Great stuff. And jesus will depart from me. I never knew you all do is do do do do do. It's not what we do. It's who we are are better said who's we are. You don't have to agree with me. I just have to tell. You is the pastor of this church we believe the word of god makes crystal. I'm the way the truth and the life. Jesus said you can't be saved by works. it's nothing you will do. That's good enough but in me all things are made new and then fruit starts to happen. You can't fabricated. We're going to talk about that next week. But when you abide in him he abides in you and guess what happens. Fruit starts happening. Because it's not what you have created. It's what he does through us because of what he's doing in us heaven's not for good people heavens for bad people who will do the abc's admit who they're not believe who he is and commit their lives to him and when they really get that heaven starts today because heavens in your heart. And jesus said i came that you might have life now and life to the fall to the fall out. Invite the team out. But i want to ask a couple of questions do you really know in. Maybe the better question is is. Does he know you have. You surrendered your life. Damn have you just laid it down. Doesn't mean you always get it right in the moment you don't you want to sit. I'm saying like oh man. God reminded how much i just need. You just need you know one's good enough back in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy one led zeppelin performed a song called stairway to heaven in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. Acdc came out with a song entitled highway to hell. I don't know this person but someone took the two songs and made this incredible observation. The fact that there's a highway to heal and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic patterns. But that's what jesus said in matthew seven the highway to hell is broad and it's gate is wide and many will choose to go that way. I don't know why. I have no clue why i'm sorry. I'll just pause there that someone in the name of faith in christianity. Let you down. But what i'm more sorry about is you're gonna let them and their life justify yours. The church is full fully hypocrites. I'm probably the greatest churches full of centers. I'm probably the reason. I'm your pastor leaders because no one's probably done more than me. Welcome to the family of god. But i love the church because you. I'm here because i desperately need the who gave us the church and thinks. I'm one good-looking wife because that's what he says. My church is my bride. And i'll lay my life down for every day in every way. Jesus said i didn't say it. Wide is the gate that leads the hell why but the gateway to life is narrow and the road is difficult. I don't think it's difficult by the way we have to walk it. I think it's difficult that we're willing to admit it especially in this country when there's so much emphasis that success what you accomplish out about who you know. It's what we have as if somehow will make you secure. Yeah for a moment. You still die. You can't take any of it with you. Not a not a dime. There's no luggage and yet. I wonder how many cemeteries are full. Caskets full that if we could exhume it all. We could probably pay off the national debt. We just want mom or dad to take with them. They're not taking it with them. It's still a whole. Is that really what your mom and dad them for you to do is very in with something that can make an impact in someone else's life is that what they tell you got one shot. It's right now. Why look at a pandemic. it's going on. And i say it didn't change us at exposed us. We freaking out about. Let not your heart be troubled. Sinoe you wanna play encourage you. I'm okay if you disagree. And and i would encourage you to go to different church if you need a perfect pastor. I don't say that to justify who i am. Because i want to be perfect. I desperately want to be perfect. I'm reminded every morning when i get up and go walk who i'm not and i'm so thankful that in the midst of home not he really loves me but maybe the difference between you and i just have to say this when i get up in the morning and recognize who i'm not. I don't let that justify who i'm not gonna be. I'm going to do what paul said this. One thing i do know. I haven't gotten it right yet. But there's one thing i do know i'm going to press on to a much higher calling because greater is he is in me than anything in the world and laying my life down for jesus so worth it when he laid it down for me. Do you know him. Make that decision for you. And i don't know how you define ignorance ignorance to me would be if i get on a flight today and the pilots has welcome to united to fifty three. Glad you're on board just so you know i'm new at this about fifty percent of the time i don't land it okay so i got a parachute. But what the heck man. If might be that fifty cents to fifty percent of the time we get zero goods but come on. I know nobody would get on that plane and yet you will risk your eternal life for your pleasure today and a convenience of what you want and redefine the bible for what you think it is. And you'll give your life to your friends who use less than ten percent of the brain and you trust what man says who use less than ten percent of their brain and you will continue to forge risking one hundred percent of your life for the possibility that ninety percent if we could be opened up to it might be completely wrong. Just strange to me. I'd rather go to heaven friendless. Knowing i have one friend and go to hell and all of your my best friends. Do you know him to see now. You is not against you. He's not mad at you. he's not disappointed you. He has no expectations of you. He just wants to love you. Show you life. You could never imagine any other way. He knows you're anxious thoughts over your mayors. That might be struggling or maybe now offer. He knows the deepest concerns of your heart. When it comes to your children and their children's children he knows worries that you think about. How am i going to provide for my family. But even more he knows all those sins that you committed even last night thoughts you had. You shouldn't have had things you did. You shouldn't have done places you went. You shouldn't have been and he loves you so much. He doesn't condemn you or already condemned in ourselves. That's why the bible says there's no condemnation in him. He knew what we needed heaven. It is a place it's prepared place but it's for prepared people father. I risk here. Because i'm not capable of your love. I want to be consumed by it. I want to yield in ways. Never yielded before and i find quickly. Things are very parent in me but in those you. Don't show me those things to guilt me. You show me those things. So i was surrendered. There garden very aware of the fact that. How do i communicate to your creation. When i'm one itself home as you are how much you love us. You're not against us and you. You wanna give us life life to the full. We don't have to try. We don't have to work. We don't have to get up and rest in the guilt. Jesus free it. Changes begin to rest in. That heaven is in your heart and your will is that would come here on earth now. We don't have to wait for it. just receive it. I don't know where you're at right now. I don't even know if i've done a good enough job to explain things. You're because i'm very aware of who. I'm not but i'm trusting that every time i open my lips that even in my humanity god can do something that supernatural and he has spoken in your heart. Maybe there's a person you're gonna have to call the day and say listen. I need to ask forgiveness. Maybe there's someone that you judge them as a friend they were not instead you owning up the friend you need to be whatever. It is god. I just want to be obedient. I don't wanna live life in a rear view mirror. I want to look out the windshield of a highway that brings life and that can happen. Now i wanna be transformed breath that i stopped breathing. I'll be home with the father. I want in that same breath that that home right now is in me and people would see it. The people would know that and then my life would be accordingly. Tell you pray. I know that the bible says when the holy spirit moves maybe. We don't know how to pray but he'll show us how he'll give us the words whatever those are right now. I'm just saying what you pray him. Would you be as david and say god. Search me no me. Show me lead me in the way of everlasting. God may be our heart. Be our cry. It'd be are longing that the world would know you are lord.

Yeah are you got coffee. Yes all right has linus left the room. Yes i get on like discord or start talking to another human being. He immediately leaves. I cannot wander back in. You might see them bright. You're ready for your first questions. Okay we got good questions on this one. Yeah so christina be would like some recommendations for sitcoms. She says where they've said. I finished superstar and shits creek so now i'm watching parks and rec in new girl. Please give me some recommendations for what to watch next. Thanks okay well. You're asking which is weird because we're both bad television. I was gonna say you may not be asking the exact right people. But i can tell you what not to watch last night. We watched boy america. The motion picture on net flicks is the cartoon. Yes okay one of my coworkers at this bookstore loved it. Okay it is. It was a man. Now take down the great and okay. It was calibrated for very specific sense of humor. That was not mind okay. It is gigantic hypertrophy super muscular presidents and channing. Tatum does a great job. As bro bonehead george washington. Jason mitsuko saito. Wonderful does exactly what you expect him to do. andy sandberg benedict arnold. And you have all of this really great time and there's maybe three hole jokes that are good and it's almost as if the whole movie was built around these three jokes it's super google and there were so many times when adam and i looked at each other and we're like what the fuck it i can't think it broke my ability to have synoptic function. It was the good bad is a quadrant right. there's good god and enjoyable in non enjoyable and this was probably supposed to land in bad enjoyable and it did not win there for me. I was very confused. What am i co. Workers showed me at clip of like. I don't know they were discussing like t shirts. like hutson's office tribe land. no. I think it's a quad. Yes in the beginning shirts and he showed it to me. And i didn't think it was nearly as funny as he did so well i don't have to watch and no i would suggest not unless you are with people who are very funny along with you when you watch somewhat questionable writing and maybe you're junker high. Yeah it might be fun. If you're high. It might be really fun if you're baked. I was just like i was just reading. Read it through most of it because i. There's there's the joke okay. Good job they'll wait like ten minutes until the next one but it wasn't worth an hour and thirty eight minutes of movie ill. Yeah yeah yeah. So in. Terms of television for christine. I can tell you. Don't watch that unless you are in a room with people and in some way In an altered state maybe that will be good for me. I would recommend letterkenny which is one of my favorite shows ever. It's on craven the in a canadian north and it's on hulu in the us. I know that like a season. Seven or eight. I don't do numbers very well. They've just filmed the next two seasons. And they're very short episodes but they are wonderfully funny and they have the same sort of tone as superstar and shits creek wear underneath. It is a foundation of kindness. Which i like in my television. I don't like mean humor. I don't like cringe humor. I don't like humiliation humor. It's not my thing. I would also recommend brooklyn nine with the caveat that it is about. Police officers is also aware of the fact that it is about police officers and in the comments to this question on patriot. Jacklyn suggested rutherford falls. Which i have never watched but was probably be a good fit. My suggestions one. I don't watch tv. yeah. And when i do i need a buddy right to hold me accountable to watch this show. So all of these shows that. I've watched i've watched with like eric. Because if i'm left up to myself. I will never watch anything. Why is that. do you not like television. I just feel like i have. I am a chronic multitasker. Where it's like. I have to be doing a million things at once. So if i'm playing a video game i'm listening to like a youtube video like there's always something else going on. That's too much talking. this is for me. it's just they won't be like you have to be present and it's easier for me to do that if i'm with someone who like watching it lift me like i'm spending time with someone and watching. Tv show so it is effectively. Multitasking gamed the system. I get it so my first one is the good place which i believe is also done. By the person the show runner parks and rec. It feels very similar. I think there's only three or four seasons season. Two is probably the slowest of the three to four. But i thought it was such a really well crafted tv show and the new end to end it rightly for about like shows it. Just go on and on and on him yes. The goal is not to tell a story the goal is to hit syndication and be be in in in perpetuity on multiple streaming platforms. Yeah i yeah show like they knew when to end it and they clearly had an end in mind when they started it. and so just like little. I know it's a really really good piece of television. All of the actors and at our wonderful ted danson is just a delight in in the good place diver. Tell you. I met him now. So i was an intern at the democratic national convention in nineteen ninety six. Yeah this'll be ninety six chicago. i was in chicago. I was an intern for the la times. Adam actually worked for the democratic national convention. He did all of their housing arrangements so he knows lots and lots and lots about hotels that were in chicago. But the ones that were there in nineteen ninety-six. I don't know about any of them now. But i was being sent from the press tent to the convention center for something. This is what i learned. I didn't want to be a journalist. Because i was in the press tent with all of the real journalists like all the full time employees were such gross assholes to the interns and complaints lodged line of glamour. I was like this is i. Don't ever want to work with any of these people. Forget this so. I started my own amateur journalism and look where it got me journalism without a license barely wearing pants in a shitty jerk. Tent apparently people complain about free food. How do you complain about the free food and that would go to anything right to the free food is shitty is free. Food is the best. Gosh so i'm walking into the convention center and there's all of this press in front of me but they're all walking backwards and i keep trying to get out of the way like i'm in the way of somebody somebody dignitaries coming through. Somebody's coming in. And i look behind me and there's nobody there and then i start to get really weirded out like my screwing up somebody shot. Are they trying to get some sort of. Yeah like establishing picture. I don't know. And i looked to my left. And there's mary steenburgen ted danson and he's just so quiet and unassuming. He's just sort of you know mela walking and the press is like losing their cool such dork. I looked at my. Oh you're the famous person wasn't me and he goes. I think there are many other people here who are more famous than me. But yeah probably like i like you. I've heard ice and this this is this is true. And you've been also telling the cast enjoyed being on set and hence you. Yeah like there are so many beside the the hind the scenes things of william harper. I think that's the same who plays sheedy in the show. Teaching like ted danson like dance moves out of how to do. Like a flaw stan. Just so sweet. So i recommend that one. I would recommend what we do in the shadows. Switches that kind of mockumentary parks and rec feel this but with vampires and it's based on a movie that came out in new zealand with tyco. Td and jermaine from flight of the conchords. I actually. I love the movie. But i think the tv show is better than the movie. It's like vampires but they're bad at it shut their such idiots but it's such a fun series. I think the next season season three comes out in september. And that's on hulu. And i believe the good places either on hulu or netflix. I think it's a little or maybe it's split between them. Despite who the hell knows eventually someone will put them altogether in cable and so what we do. There's so much fun. I really like matt berry. Who's in it. Who is in. Also this other mockumentary type show called toast of london where he plays a failed actor sorts music trying to get more gigs. That's on net flex. And then lastly this is on apple tv but my advice is get an apple tv trial and watch head lasso. It's only ten episodes in each episode. Is like a half an hour so it's like five showers of your time. You could totally fit that in a week. Long trial in my opinion. If someone's on the couch with you so it's only happening but also doesn't the new season come out on the thirtieth twenty-ninth twenty at the last week of july sometime in the last week of july. So what you wanna do is time the free trial so that the next season is inside your free trial and clear your schedule. Yeah you know because you want to get that one week free you wanna watch one show time it correctly you can watch the first season and then watch the second season and then go into itunes and cancel your subscription. It is hands down one of the best pieces of media i have ever seen. Wow and is just so sweet. And wholesome give you like if you like kind. Tv shows yeah. This is that it. It's just funny. And there's like romance and great female friendships and great ma'am friendships. So the hype is worth it hype is right. I think so. 'cause we've talked before about how people being non stop gushing about something kind of makes us both them. Yeah okay you loved. I understand okay. Moving hype is the hype israel. And then i haven't watched it yet. But i'm very curious to watch it and i'm excited to and it's also apple tv. So i might have to get a subscription but is called mega june. I'm sorry it's what now it's called megan and it's got keegan michael key listening and cecily strong from saturday night live and they play a couple. That's kind of like on the rocks and they get lost and they find a nearby lake town and they can't leave oh crap and the town is technically a town. You find a musical so these two idiots who are struggling in their relationships are essentially stuck in a musical. My god kill me and until they can find can't please kill me their relationship again and i'll say musical fan like keegan michael kinsley. Strong now it looks hilarious. I saw the trailer. It looks i. it's going to be fun but those are my three probably the only three tv shows. I've watched it. Maybe the last four years and if anyone who will be listening has suggestions for christina can leave him in the comments. You can tweet at us. We would love to hear your suggestions for building a good tv watching list. Yeah one of the best tv walk. No it is not my strength it is something. I am not superb at. I mean i also like you just did that whole post about asian dramas and there are so many wonderful shows. That's a multitasking struggle. With because i'm reading the subtitles and then eventually my brain and my eyeballs are like look i need. I need a break. This is a lot. That's that's the thing is like. I loved dramas. But i'm a subs over dubs. All i can figure that the big stack of like poggi sandwiches. I'm all in favor of those but you so you have to pay attention to read the subtitles and man. That's so it's difficult for me to just sit down and devote my attention to and then like of course once i get started i watch like seven episodes in a row and mike up till three in the morning right because once you get going. The writing is so good in. The story is so good for me. The struggle is paying attention to what the actors are doing. Yeah and then paying attention to what the text is telling me. And and that's measure so dramatic that i usually try to keep like a cry counter and i think like i was watching an asian driver called faded to love you. I really liked it. But i'm gonna episode twelve and unlike all right. I've cried nine times. so far. Once an episode christina also wants to know on a whole other note. What is the weirdest thing. Amanda has put mail on and then kind of commented that i love mayo. I'm always happy to hear about now. I just want you to know that a all these has a big ass. Jarve dukes man so i have this big tub of mayonnaise and it is all mine no one else in the house will eat it and i have started using it for french fries and i am so happy. I'm originally put like. I put on my plate when we had fries one night. Just to mess with by kids like goes. Well gosh hold up. This is really frigging delicious. I had groceries ordered the other day. And i needed more may. Aw ran out of my sixty four ounce jar. Then that's what. I got a big old jar. Yeah and i guess. I wasn't paying attention to what i had ordered an out out of the bags. I pulled this. Dinky eight ounce thing of work and like is not enough people. Ask me like two days when you have a costco-sized box of cereal and end up buying a pint of milk. so we'll one. I love getting questions so thank you I i much on tv. But we got. We got mayo skills here. Man i mentioned this at the book store the other day that we doing a podcast and you had just sent over the questions that i was looking at them and i'm standing with my coworkers. Oh we have a mayo question. What excuse me and Yeah i mentioned was like yeah. I love may on the question is like what's the weirdest thing i put me on. And both of my co workers who are native new englanders visibly shuddered. And they're like. Would you eat mayo office spoon for sure. She yeah surprised. I haven't seen this happen every put mayo one sandwiches. I lick the knife and then toss it in the sink. They're like so twenty contact warning for that triggered warning we're talking about licking may off a knife. Maybe a minute twenty two. Well if you had asked me prior to this year. I would have said like i feel like my mayo things and it put mayo on. Nor they're relatively expected. They're they're not they're mayo adjacent like i put my all my hotdog. Maybe that might be the weirdest thing Hamburger the grilled cheese shirk french fries. But of course. I feel like right now. What tops the list is peanut butter and pickle stanway thing. I've had which was entirely my fault. Not bad not surprisingly not terrible. I thought i thought the peanut butter mayo's am which was better with the pickles right. Add some crunch right. Yes creamy soft baked. And there's a difference in the level of tang in the pickle in the mail this makes sense hanging creamy bite. Yeah so. I think. That's the weirdest thing i've put manny's on. It was pretty weird pickles sandwich. It what yeah wasn't horrible. But i feel like i have a strong stomach anyway yet. Didn't make me gag or anything wasn't bad. I don't know if i would make it again on my own. I will link to that episode. When i put this show up so everyone can be experienced me running around the house trying to get my kids to eat. This bomb know gross. We've and ask staffing agency known for my hamburgers and hot dogs. All have like pickled relish on it with mayo. And that's fine. I mean it's both. It's both a a source of craziness and tank and glue to hold the topics in place. Finding engagement as much as it is a tangy smooth. Yeah taste but i will try like mail on anything really really. Hey that'd be good with like say no more. We have got one more food food question before we end who other recommendations and requests phoebe says had a friendly argument with friend about putting both peanut butter and butter on my sandwich. What are your thoughts now. This question does not reveal. Vb's position on this one where they pro p. b. and b. or were they against the peanut butter and butter. Yup i have never tried. This is different right like the butter varies. You could have salted butter salted butter. Yep this credible butter that has oil in it advocates different from just softened stick butter so my dad the weirdest sandwich i've ever seen but he loves it it's roast beef catch up and ice cold like pats of butter. It's not even softened. Its like a chunk of cold butter Wait so like sliced deli roast beef. Yes and then catch up. And then pats of butter. Yeah like. they're not like spreadable. You just like cut it off the block chop you're making biscuits only instead of cutting it into flour. You cut it a disc catch up. Yeah i feel like having. Those stiff squares of butter is also a different sensation than like the spreadable from a culinary perspective. That's way out. There melted craft single on a slice of apple pie. I can understand that because it's like a. It's it's cheddar. Yeah jason. I guess cheddar cheese. I mean it's it's not a fu a real cheese food product vida. I think peanut butter and butter. I will tell you got boring sandwich to me. But i made it houston's men as on it. He's pickles butter peanut butter pickles. Now we're talking now we're talking forever open a deli. That'll be amanda. I never lies on here. So it's disgusting while you should try it. There's a reason why it's on the menu because you could try it. I will tell you. I made homemade peanut butter cups this weekend. Oh my gosh. First of all it was a recipe from read it. That adam sent to me and i was like oh i can do that so you melt chocolate. You can add oil to it. But i just melted some dark chocolate. Then you mix the peanut butter with a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar which takes forever to make. Imagine you're like arm get makes such a mess. The powder triggers like everywhere. But once you get it all mixed together it makes it Cohesive just enough that once you put the melted chocolate in the bottom of the muffin Muffin liner little paper. And you smooth it all out. You can roll the peanut butter into a little ball and make it into padding than just drop it in and cover it with chocolate holy crap. They are first of all.

You wanna hit the next question karelya right. That's really. I think really. If we're wrong we we. We're sorry sorry. I would love recommendations for contemporary forest. Proximity romance with their characters have regular occupations slash lives so no bodyguard protects reality tv star from terrorists on a submarine. I do like bodyguards on submarines. That's good sept too. But i'm curious to read something closer to home. Sarah's bonds was a pretty much twelve question mark. yeah. Okay i could. I could the only thing. I could think of where they have regular occupations forest proximity was the flat share where they're not necessarily together because they're leaving notes for each other but when character works the night shift so sleeps during the day and then the other character works the day shift. They're kind of in the forest proximity of the apartment. But they're never there at the same time that's just about the only thing i can come up with however amanda has suggestions and links. Yeah emily's i thought this might be not quite what you're looking for but White out by adriana anders is at the the characters like one is a is it a glaciologist. A scientist and the other one is like the cook. That's on base antarctica. Yeah so neither. A bodyguard nor reality star But they kind of had have to battle the elements and there's some weird like mercenary stuff. That happens however the main characters aren't rich and famous No i believe the wedding by jasmin. Gillary starts with the characters trapped in an elevator. Yeah they don't stay there forever though. That would be a very smelly romance. Yeah when was it's like you know minor force proximity but that is the event that kind of kicks off the romance and they both have normal jobs. And then there's the honeymooners by christina lauren. Look good call. Enemies two lovers the sister of the heroin and the best friend of the hero or getting married everybody gets food poisoning except them And they go on the honeymoon instead because the honeymoon non refundable And they hate each other so it was like forced proximity in hawaii but in a very beautiful tropical place and they hate each other. Now i have to link so one is in our book finder. We have the like forced proximity theme. Yes that will give you every book we've mentioned on the site with force proximity so there you'd have to weed some out you can also spot contemporary pretty quickly. Yes and the cover. The cover illustrated your. I hit and in the book finder. You can kind of mark professions writing so you can make it more niche we also did a rec league with force proximity stories that have Inclement weather like the characters are forced together because of some like whether or environment issue yup closer close no half day kindergarten. Yep so that might also be helpful since you know there. I feel like those might be less. Overtly like suspense with bodyguards. More like people are stuck in a shitty situation because like car broke down or whatever So you might be able to find some stuff there as well so those remaining suggestion. These are good suggestions. You all right and also Currently also continues with another question I'm always curious about people's thoughts on the word on words metaphors etc. We have and don't have to identify the female sexual anatomy. What works what's problematic. What's changed in the past few years. Why have i never read romance. It uses the word vulva. Maybe 'cause bulb is not a very sexy word. yes i mean. That's relative right. You might think is very sexy word. But i think like it was. Don't forget the compliment. Don't forget come out. The compliment is anything. You talk about will be fabulous. I can't wait thank you. We've talked about mayo tv so far. So let's talk about voltaire. I feel like the more scientific word the less sexy it is and the less likely will see it in romance. But i feel like i don't know how to say it but i'm like i'm pussy blind like those words. Don't matter to him like okay. Faith she watched me like workout. What i meant some okay. I are very particular in like the words that are used during sexy times. I don't care personally. You can use like the c word doesn't bother me. I just feel like the more scientific. It is the less sexy. It comes across on the page. I i would never dirty talk anyone in use the word vulva. Because let's be honest. Most men probably don't know what vulva is and they probably think you're talking about the thing in the back of your throat. That's your you've you like. I feel you drove a chevy. Those are smart sensible. I scam lot of sex scenes a lot of times. When i'm reading the the writing almost takes a takes a turn and becomes very different One thing i'm always curious about from my as sort of semi objective standpoint is whether or not people have a preference between dick or cock conference. I do not really have a preference either. But it's very interesting to me when when those those words are deployed in which ones are chosen verses euphemisms like arousal ridge spear soldier flagpole us. Remember the believer ten things. I hate about you allison. Janney the guidance counselor is working on erotic romance and she's trying to find the right where i think. She was like turgid member. That was a big one is like in gore. Should keep like working through the different words that you could use using more. Like craft terminology rather than euphemisms to me like better. Because i just roll my eyes when it's like speier a rod or whatever and i'm like let's just say what it is like. We know what it is. You don't have to play koi here. Yeah i think it depends on the book that i'm reading sometimes. The language change doesn't fit. And i'm like oh okay wow or the characters will will start dirty talking each other and unlike your relationship is in that place. I didn't realize that did that happen off. Page it's all of a sudden forty minutes ago right. Wow okay all right then also knew that there are certain readers who hate certain. Oh yeah like moist. I am not one of those. I don't really have strong opinions about dick pussy con whatever. Don't care yeah so everyone's children's who are listening to this show. Some people was like. Ooh i hate that word and you know it will just take you out of a senior. Yeah unless it's something really goofy lake moist. Vova artists like childish Juvenile like a woman's tits or hunkin bo-bo whatever they out. Okay her majestic buzim. Buzz haim letter puppies one cover with the dog sweater puppies. Oh dear god. Yeah something like that. That makes a wait. What i'm sorry he. I think would be like a good little easter egg for a romance other to put in there just to make sure you're paying attention. Yeah or can you imagine like an audio book narrator western puppies. This took a turn. Sorry well we have a question. Laura b. what are your favorite summer treats treat equaling food outing or whatever for me. I love ice cream sandwiches. I like champagne cocktails especially a french. Seventy five which is gin lemon juice simple syrup and champagne on top. It's wonderful. And i like anything on the beach. I think any food on the beach tastes good but when i was really little shack on the beach that i used to go to didn't sell coke or pepsi. It had rc cola and i would get rc cola and a bag of doritos and that was the absolute taste of summer. When i was eleven or twelve. So i hate this summer surprise. Even though i was born in florida. I hate it but our our beat snacks only would go as a family would be a green grapes. Ice cold in the cooler. Yummy original cokes. Regular lay's potato chips right and then like subs from public. That would be food however living in new england. It's a little different. Because like sarah listed ice cream sandwiches I think there was a study that like massachusetts the most ice cream out of all the states The beaches terrible beaches are fucking garbage here. So there's like everyone. So there's there's like a compensation of ice cream overcrowded beaches but one of our new booksellers who's wonderful arenas christie. And she's from la. This is her first year here. She's here because her partners in medical school. She is horrified. She was horrified this winter. Where like we would eat ice cream. Eight is twenty degrees outside. Why are you eating ice cream. She leaked doesn't get. It is horrified but so like all eat ice cream all year round. Yeah for sure. Yeah would you put mayonnaise on ice cream weirdly enough but i haven't but massachusetts has weird ice cream. I went to martha's vineyard and they had lobster ice cream not eat it do dodo. I guess i can get it because like lobster supposed to be butter rate. I've had it once was not impressed but like in terms of food that i think is more enjoyable in the summer mill up sour beers. Yes i will drink a sour beer year round but they just. They're better in the summer and of course darker beers are better in the winter. I have one more recommendation. Okay One of our favourite afternoon summer day. Drinking cocktails is called. An amaretto rose who i love him. Moretto first of all it is so good. It is amaretto and lime juice. I will link to a recipe. Amaretto lime juice and club soda or seltzer. You mix moreno in lime at a cherry and then top with club soda or seltzer and it is super light and perfect. In the summer day. Drinking one of my roommates favorite drinks is an moretto ginger ale. Ooh both of those things easy. You just mix them together. Yeah what were your favorite books in middle school slash high school. Okay so i am very old and very very old and there's currently a podcast called. Listen to sassy with tara david cole and pamela ribbon. This and they are re reading old episodes episodes issues of sassy magazine and they break each episode into three and it is brilliant. Because it's i. I didn't realize how much sassy had influenced me as a young impressionable teen. But wow did it. Although there were some things. I was never into like i never really got into the white sox and big black chunky shoes thing. That was not a thing for me. But be that as it may. I am old and discovered romance. In highschool which means i graduated in nineteen ninety-three i discovered romance at peak force deduction fuchsia giant sweater puppies on the cover. Big big big big hair. Everything's exhaling in a different direction. That was when i found her. So one of my favorite books. After i discovered romance. Which is what. I one i read was blaze windham by bertram. Small town boy. I brought it with me. When i studied abroad in one thousand nine hundred six. It is what i believe is termed fucking through history book she. She has sex with a bunch of different dudes including king henry. The eighth for a good for her. And it's it's tutor and i hadn't realized that tutor was a thing back then. But there are a lot of tudor romances. That book is completely over. The top. And i love it deeply. I will never not love that book but in middle school i was totally a sweet valley person. I'd only took me like twenty five thirty minutes to read the frigging. They weren't were not. They were very small and you got in. This was when they were still arriving month to month so every month there was a newsweek belly high. I was super in to sweet valley high seriously into it. I didn't get to the end of the series when there was an earthquake in and refrigerator killed a secondary character. Yes that's up. Fridge falls on olivia davidson. She dies in an earthquake. I think that's how they ended the series. I never got to that because they were. They were in junior year for like ten years into spring. Breaks who summer vacations do winner vacations. But they were still juniors they were sixteen and as much as sassy influenced me unfortunately sweet valley as well because holy balls or those books fast. Spoke fat-phobic jeez so fat fat-phobic so what about you. What were your favorite books in middle school and high school. Oh this is tricky. Because seventh grade i i. We moved from south florida to north florida and the school i went to was a combination middle middle school high school very rural so our library options weren't great. So i read a lot of stephen king. But i loved juliet really i still do. She writes like fantasy with a little bit of romance. The first book. I remember reading by hers. My friend best friend in middle school recommended. It took me and it was the start of the daughter of the forest which is Liquor retailing of the six swans and so i was obsessed with her books as a a young amanda. And then like i was super into mongo in middle school and high school peak. Tiny into it too. I know so. I was obsessed with fruits basket. Has it ever ended. I don't know but it went on forever and it's about those young girl who meets this like mysterious family of boys will not boys. I think it it. There's a multitude of genders but who this mysterious family turns out They can all into different animals of the chinese zodiac. That will create a lot of addition. Oh i have among recommendation for you. Yes i borrowed from my library. The first four volumes of the way of the house husband. Oh it's so cute. it's an herbal. There was a necklace show. I know i cannot wait to watch it. It is so adorable. I love it so much. It's just the cutest thing was perfect right before bed reading. Because it's just so sweet. I loved it and then another manga that i was obsessed with and then would religiously watch the anime with my friend who recommended juliet's books was or in high school host club op. You've talked about this. It's so stupidly q. The there's a girl who's a scholarship student at like a preppy school and she dresses like a tomboy and everyone assumes that she is a boy and then she joins this like host club and it just so cute. Yeah so. I run a lot of manga and i read a lot of romantic fantasy. Those remind books super cute. Well i'm going to end this episode here so that it's not ninety miles long. But if folks who are listening have recommendations of force proximity contemporaries or tv shows or things to put mail on or what you read in high school. I love hearing what people read in high school. And i also want to know what people some retreats are. Yeah because i'm always looking for another cocktail recipe and that brings us to the end of this episode. Thank you to amanda for hanging out with me. Thank you garlic. Netter for transcribing this episode. Thank you to the patriot community. We will be back next week with more cool questions from all of y'all so thank you and as usual. I end with a terrible joke. I like this joke a lot. I've told it to lots of people. They've all grown. And so now. I'm gonna share it with you. What is a horse's favorite store.

"Bob and cherry sponsored. By bank of america customize cash rewards credit card. You can earn three percent cashback on online shopping making the essentials even more rewarding. Here's bob and sheri. So let's get this show everybody. So the bob and sheri show with bob. Here's what i do. I talk on radio and sherry near the moose important. Now casting from the palatial bob and sheri studios is jerry. Welcome to the bob and sheri show and sort of breaking news within the last twenty four forty eight hours. Brittany spears is free and engaged. Were you surprised No actually i. I think that this moment was waiting for her to be freed from the conservative ship. They've been together five years or more might even be more than that now So and she. He seems good for her. The know he's been with her through some really tough stuff and she seemed very happy with him and Now the engagement picture where. She's kissing him and and flipping the camera off with her. Seventy thousand dollar. Diamond was not the most traditional engagement photo. I've ever seen on instagram but sent the message. But it looks like she's giving the middle finger but it's she's giving the ring finger but it has the same effect There are several photographs She had like four of them and the ring was of course in all of them. i don't i don't know i haven't been following your career like that. I know nothing about the guy. His name is Sam as gari is that. I mean i've never heard anybody say his last name so i don't know he is twenty seven. She is thirty nine. So i guess she started dating him when he was twenty two. He was a young. he's still young guy. I'm gonna hope that that this is wonderful and that this is her happily ever after. Because i'm rooting for her. To have a happily ever after He's he has a great sense of humor The the first thing that every journalist in the world said when this news broke was that she better have a pre-nup and sam Posted on his social media. Thank you everyone is concerned about the prenup. Of course we're getting an ironclad prenup to protect my jeep shoe collection. In case she dumps me one day you know that is absolutely good for him. Good for him. That's absolutely perfect now is. Oh so sam seventy k. For the for the diamond. And it's a big one. He's an actor too. that's how they first met. He was in one of her music videos. Like i guess. Five years ago now would be and she doesn't sound like he's had the career that would give you a seventy thousand dollar diamond. Well maybe it would cost you seventy thousand dollars but because it's on instagram. Sam got it for five. That is how that works seattle. Now she did. I will remind you when she married. Kevin fedor line. The artist known as k fat when she married him. They had a pre-nup that was like fifty or sixty pages long so brittany i. I do believe that britney will be protected and don't you want to see her happy i mean. Come on yeah. I think the only thing that concern. I mean it's not my concern. It live your life. you know. it's nothing to do with me. But she's a public figure and people are talking about it. it's it. It just like she got free. She got her money and she got engaged like in the same breath. You just kind of sometimes worry that people do too many things at once. Well i would. I hear you and agree with you. And the only reason that i'm not feeling that in this moment is that these two together for a long time and she's been trying to get free for a long time and you know she would you say she is thirty nine is that how old brittany is which blows my mind by the way but hey if at thirty like how much longer does this woman have to wait deliver life. According to the way she would like to live her life. She's basically a princess in tower. For how long now and she just wants to get on with it. I mean one of the things that she said to that judge was that i want to get married. I want to have a baby. I want to live my life. So can you imagine how you would feel if you had been prevented from making any decisions for yourself. In any way for as long as she's been like how how what's what are the odds that you'd wanna wait to go ahead and get started on the life that you've been daydreaming off and you know if she's serious about having a child It's probably time to kind of get that. He said that he was looking forward to being a young father saw. He's a handsome guy. Any good looking good. Yeah and she wants to your. I mean that's the other thing like at thirty nine. If she wants to have another baby she's got a get busy having another baby. I'm really you know. I'm happy for britney and i'm cautiously optimistic. That things are going to be okay for her now. Wouldn't you love. I don't care if she never performs again. Wouldn't you love to wake up. At some point in the future and see believe it or not millennials. Britney spears as grandma you know when one of her sons with k fed gets married and has his own children. Don't you wish for that kind of like normal balance regular happiness for her. Yes i will. Now say the most metro sexual thing ever said by a man. I'm not really sure about the red part of that french manicure. It doesn't look it. Looks like she's been biting her nails till they bleed. No i'm on i'm not. I'm not a huge fan. But i think maybe britain no she was getting propose to and so she didn't have an engagement manicure. Go of i. Also i also the other thing. That's in the news. Big time as prince andrew again to remember last week on the show when we were talking about prince andrew and fergie going on vacation and her hardest oath and divorces. Just one thing. But she's i've got. I'm going to spill that hot tea on prince andrew in two ways yourself. It's next it's bobby sherry sharable taste of this show the fun size. Podcast drops every thursday on the free. Bob and sheri okay. So as promised prince andrew and fergie word is is that he is eager. that's the word. Eager to remarry fergie. The covert pandemic. And all of his troubles with jeffrey epstein have brought them closer together than ever and rekindled their feelings for each other. And i you know what if that's true who who doesn't love a happy ending. I mean i don't maybe love a happy ending as much as prince. Andrew does but i love a good happy ending. Oh they have children and grandchildren. Yeah yeah who doesn't love a happy ending but here. I hate to be cynical. But i feel timing. The timing is suspect. I think that She certainly won't be able to testify against him in an american court of law if the feds are successful in bringing him over here yeah and maximum talking about it. Not long ago Earlier actually today before we went on and he was mentioning that she will also Look good if he does get hold into a court somewhere as the Loving wife it softens because if he goes in there is a single guy. you know. it's a different sort of look. that if he goes in there with fergie. Oh yeah and for anyone go. Yeah but what's in it for her. Oh sit down. That girl's been on the hustle since that divorce. What's in it for her. She's reinstated in the royal family. She's back on the balcony. For trooping the colour she's legitimized and once again ensconced and protect it within that institution in a way that she hasn't been since she's been out there and and i give her a lot of credit writing book selling china. She's made her way but boy a girl gets tired for her. This is the only thing that could possibly get her into the good graces of the queen coping helping to tell helping you save on that you know. I hear what you're saying. But i think you know the queen knows you know how to manipulate the public. That's part of being the queen. And she knows that ferdie. Stepping up at this moment would be helpful. that helps the monarchy. Yeah well look. Everybody wins if prince. Andrew remarries fergie. Everybody wins prince. Andrew wins because a lot of people will go well. How bad can be his ex. Wife took him back right. And then there's all the There's all the legal ramifications of of the two of them being married again. This is this is a plot twist we all should have seen coming and didn't well. Here's what you're going to see coming as you checking out the grocery store magazines. That say they're in love again. Love blossoms for the second time roasts that they. You know that's going to be happening. And of course the article will also say there are people who are suspicious because of the timing blah blah blah. But you know if you're just checking out and you see the two of them you go. Oh okay well maybe you know. I don't even like to picture. A sausage fingered shifty sweaty prints. And you're having a second honeymoon with the duchess of york but then again according to prince andrew. He has a medical condition. That prevented from sweating. So it's just the sausage figured shifty present. that's right. i forgot about that. I forget nothing. I forget nothing when it comes this. So in a related story prince andrew There's a new book out by the author. Michael wolfe called to famous and in it. He writes about jeffrey epstein. Which of course. That's the connection presenter. Steve bannon Has more than fifteen hours of practice interviews. That he recorded for jeffrey epstein to help jeffrey epstein prep to be on sixty minutes a thing. That never happened by the way. And he kept having to tell. Jeffrey epstein stop talking about your racist theories of education and keep saying that you're not a pedophile. Look at the camera once in a while being creepy. Oh my god. This is just unbelievable to Yeah yeah. I got morons in the news next. You gotta be careful where you work. You might get tasers. it's bob and sheri. We've got him moron with bob and sheri. He's a moron. It's morons in the news. You know when we talk to you on the radio. We always hope as we described things that we're doing a good job giving you an idea of what we're talking about. You know. visually. This is the first story that i would say. I don't want you to focus too much on that. Just listen to what's going on here. A man from osceola. Florida has just been arrested on charges. He exposed himself at various toll. Collector booths over a week span. The florida highway patrol said in a statement that mark. Anthony build you off was booked into the county jail all seven. Instances happened on three days right around seven o'clock in the morning. He entered the cash lanes of the toll. Plazas toll workers told troopers. The man had no clothes on and was quote showing his privates he was identified through a photo comparison and his identity identity match. He faces multiple charges of indecent exposure. Trooper set this guy is getting up at six o'clock in the morning taking off all of his clothes and getting in his car and going to toll booths. I this is the specificity of this perversion. intrigues me. Like what happened to you early. In your life where you somehow got sexual pleasure and exhibition ism and toll collectors. All mixed up into one of sue. How did that happen. It's one of the least sexy places you could possibly be. You're coming through so fast chief. You're just your flight crew it. Here's a guy that doesn't have one of those easy pass. Stickers i can tell you know was change. He's giving her a fifty. He's giving her a fifty and he wants change. Wow well let's let's stay in florida. Citrus county florida. Today's more of the day is a fifty seven year old. Grown man named richard wolfe. I'm assuming goes by richard. Although with this mugshot in this story. I'd be dick wolf. If i were him he got pulled over on a traffic stop cops. He got out of his suv. He bent over and he began working for the citrus. County sheriff's deputies in the pouring rain a bystander recorded the entire thing so there's video showing richard torquing for the officers and as he's torquing and he's waving his booty at them. He's saying what you scared of. I got knives. You got a gun. Then he took out a knife and he threw it after several attempts to get mr wolf to listen to orders and stop torquing. The deputy tastes them the dance. The taste the arrest. It's all on video and it's on sherry preston. I tell you who took that video. The husband of a big fan of the bob and sheri show that listens to us on citrus. You're kidding now. Oh thank you so very much for being his here. Yeah thanks drew. Much hopson dancing. Was he dancing when he was tased. I've never seen anyone gets as while they were dancing. My dancing looks like being. He was going to work on and finally. We'll close out more on news with this. A power outage that disrupted half of the new york city subway system for several hours stranding hundreds of passengers was investigated and they have found the cause. Someone accidentally hit the emergency power off and just shut the subways off. The is no by accident. Yup there was no malfunction. There was no fun. There was no fire. Just cleanest bent the button with his elbow. Shut everything down. And that is morons in the news. Got some news for rod stewart. Fans straight ahead got the comedian. Martha kelly joining us got midwest series for you coming up big show for tuesday. It's bob and sheri instant access to the podcast and fun side. Just download the free. Bob and sheri well rod stewart and his son are in the news and not for a reason that you would think it has nothing to do with show biz singing or anything like that. The charges of assault have been dropped. Well sir rod reached a plea agreement on this so this whole thing. I was so surprised by this. This whole thing took place on new year's eve in two thousand nineteen and his hand rod stewart and his son who's forty now route seventy six now and his son is forty. They were charged with simple battery because rod allegedly punched a security guard in the ribs. Both rod stewart and his son denied the accusation That they had a hearing last month and the court heard that the case was very close to be resolved a spokesperson for the palm beach. County a district attorney. I guess said that they were negotiating with the defense team. And that the reported agreement would not be made public and so I guess there won't be a public trial.

Hey derek comes right on out you know. I'll post on facebook so you can check it out and share it with your friends. It's bob sign up for the newsletter with saban sherry exclusive articles. Sign up now at bob and sheri dot com now cherry show. It's another exciting episode of things pov. Didn't know and this is a special shout out to the great state of california. The golden state. Did you know in california sneaking into a movie theater leaving an unpaid bill at a restaurant or using a ski slope without paying are all examples of the crime of quote defrauding an innkeeper which sounds like something that was like out of the eighteen or even the seventeen hundreds to fraud ing an innkeeper and i was looking at this and i thought. Did you ever defraud the innkeeper I had a friend of mine that was real when we were kids like twelve thirteen. This guy was so good at sneaking into movie theaters. And he would. He would encourage me to join him. And i never had the courage to do that. I'm not saying that you know wouldn't have if i knew i could get away with it but i just didn't want i just didn't want to get caught and banned from the theater. And his thing was he would send he. Would one of the guys would go in and buy a ticket right. Everybody would chip in the guy would buy a ticket and so it's a small movie theater and there's you know the person who takes the ticket you know maybe one other person of the only people that are working there and so then as soon as the lights went down he would sn one of them would sneak down and open the back door where the fire escape the fire doors and then he would sneak in and not pay for it. I couldn't denver. I've never done that. I've i've never. I've never done that. You've not done that either. I've not done that but we had one drive in movie That was left in the new haven area. Just one they all closed you know two years earlier and the thing was i mean. It's like right out of american graffiti. We would pile two or three people into the trunk of the car drive. Somebody's somebody's fathers. Big american boat of car like a buick or a pontiac. Or something like that and There'd be like three of us you know to in the front one in the back. Buying the tickets. We got three people in the back. The only thing is you could never get any of the girls to get into the trunk smarter in a well. Partly bob because little girls are taught from a very early age not to get in the trunk a longtime ago. Who won't get in the truck. Hey and world. Are you looking forward to the movie. Good okay you so small. Let's get you in the trunk. Go ahead and just papa. There you go. How allen which come on over there can you get it with her yet. just you know what how. 'bout i get in there with you. What do you ju just for stability that. That never ever happened at all but is used to get caught doing that. They would get caught. You know bringing other people in and you would think that all the people working drive in movies would have figured that out by now they were doing. They did because like we go to drive ins and be paid by the carload. Now right you don't buy like an individual knows that right. They know more than one person's coming in. yeah. I used to like going we. We didn't go very often and it was the end of that era. I mean it. It's kinda still hanging around. And i love the idea of it and we only had one left but it was always just so freeing your sixteen years old right and you might have a girl with you and you might have your your best friend and his girlfriend or just might be you know like six stupid kits that are in the movie for for next to nothing and it was just great that you were outside to one of my favorite drive ins is in tiger georgia and We we've taken the kids. They're a bunch and it's great because they have like a playground with a swing set and so what especially when the kids were younger. They would love that. 'cause you know before the movie starred if they'd run around on the playground and then they were able to watch a movie on a blanket on the grass was that was part of the appeal though is always part of the appeal that you know kids could go out. Did they have a. I'm trying to think back if my memory serves me. Did they have like a playground with jungle gyms and slides and things like that not they have like a swing set and it wasn't anything really dancing elaborate and i haven't been since the pandemic started and i don't know what i don't know if they've survived it but i would think they would because it's outdoors and you can be socially distant so maybe maybe maybe drive ins are having a bigger moment than we realize because of all this 'cause there are three within driving distance of my house that you there really how yeah no kidding. Yeah good for them have you. When was the last time you went to do. They have a different way to listen to you. Listen on the radio. Is that the way you listeners. In years yeah. I just remember people would always talk about. Oh god we went to the drive-in and bert drove away with the speaker in the and ripped it thing about the drive in. it's a triple. Most of them do a triple feature and so the first movie is really really family. Friendly like how to train your dragon. And then the second movie is the one that you went to see. And then the third movie is some slasher flick you know nine clouds and sorority girls. That kind of thing. Yeah yeah so. It's i you've never we talk about driving. If you've never been is such a fun experience you don't have to put anyone in the trunk anymore. Those things are gonna. It's bob and sheri leave us a tough talk back with the free. Bob and sheri app is time now for. Everyone needs a laugh and today. The comedian is martha kelly. I grew up outside of los angeles and lived in the city for a while. When i was young adults and i found it to be kind of a scary place. There's just so many people one scary thing that happened to me is. I was a stop play and i used to have an old seventy-one volkswagen bug and they don't have very condition so i always had my windows rolled down and i was at the stoplight and a guy in a car next to me started talking to me. At first. he was talking me about the car. Which i didn't think was a big deal because some people are into old bugs but when the light change does really relieved and tried to speed away but in a volkswagen bug. It's a little difficult to speed away. So he caught up to me at the next slate and he started talking again and finally he goes. Hey why don't you give me your phone number and we could go out for coffee sometime. And then i thought about it and was like how just meet you naked at a shallow grave and you can push me in clearly where we're headed and we don't need to bring coffee and knew it what's happening. I haven't seen the new star wars movie yet. I heard it's great. And i plan to see it. I like the star wars franchise. But i'm a little bum that there aren't female jet i. I don't really understand that. Like if being a jet i worry about physical strength than i would understand why it's mostly men because most manner physically stronger than most women but yoda is a jet. I and he's a crippled puppet. So clearly it's not about strength. I was in a minor car accident not too long ago. It was during rush hour so luckily we weren't going very fast and this lady rear ended me and we both pulled over and i got out of my car. And she didn't get out of her as she leaned out of harare and said euro. Okay right and i said yeah i'm okay. And then she started to get back just closed the door like she was going to drive away. Which kind of made me mad. So i yelled at her and was like what are you doing. And she leaned back out and said what's your problem. And i said well you ran into me. Aren't you at least gonna policies and she said why i didn't do it on purpose. That's why they call it an accident and then kind of flabbergasted. As i know i know what accident means a and b still. When people accidentally run into each other a lot of times. They go him. Sorry i hit you. And then she goes while if you'll recall the first words out of my mouth where are you okay. And then i said i do. Recall your first words. Ma'am and i also have a prediction for what your last words might be. Which is help and being choked. And i kind of asked for media. Barth a- kelly and you can find all the convicts who spotlight on. Everyone needs a laugh at b. o. b. a. n. d. s. h. e. r. dot com. Click on more stuff for the show and then everyone needs a laugh. It's bob and sheri swag you can use just hit shot bob and sheri dot com pete. Davidson has got to be one or the other one of the great thespians of our time or the greatest lover since valentino. Because i've never seen any guy. Get more great gigs on saturday night. Live and in these movies and and he's good in the movies you know he really is and they continue to come his way and the women that he's been a line to a kate beck and sale Harry hanlin and Lisa run his daughter. I don't date at her. Bob i think that is lured disick but when all stars a bridge or tin phoebe of that was his girlfriend for. I mean there've been so many amazing women. Areana grundy was engaged to pete davidson. People right right and so i'm looking at this headline here kaley. Cocoa has denied her estranged husband. Spousal support due to her quote ironclad prenup after wiping him from her instagram. And being linked to pete davidson every time. One of these really beautiful babes breaks up with somebody. Pete davidson is the go-to guy and actually for a lot of guys. It's kind of inspirational. 'cause he doesn't look like the leading man he's very talented. As a matter of fact he's very talented but he seems oh deep baggy sometimes in long and he seems like an impulsive wildcard bad. Bet support. Us you're right. we've got sherry. Got a hold of clip of him doing standup. We're going to stop to be honest with you. Yeah i'm not doing it for an applause have problems i need it and it makes me feel better sound like i'm going to stop this and jumped at the beginning. Hang on all right here. We go love smoking weed. I'm probably never gonna stop you be awesome. I'm not doing it for an applause. I have problems. I need it and it makes me feel better. So i love l. schmuck driving. It's my favorite. Yeah i love being high. When i'm driving. I don't mind traffic on my our company mike. We're all in this together. Is you ever make friends and traffic. That's best pull up to a stop. Go to the guy next to you. Guys like love smoking weed or watching movies. It's my favorite ever get so high like watch the credits who directed this. He did a good job. I think that's what. Imdb was created for people will just get high like we just kind of front and then you're like oh jerry is patriot. That is so inappropriate to talk to talk about smoking weed. And dr sharon. Is there not a rumor about him that he's kind of a winner. In genetic roulette there is. There are multiple rumors about him. One of them is that he is so much fun and he's really good at some stuff partly because he's so impulsive and enthusiastic. How was that for tactful. That was that was. I think beyond the obvious that we're talking about. I think women do love a fun guy especially after they broken up with somebody that they'd You know like to just put in the past. I mean what's the for sh- she's married to this guy. I don't know anything about this guy. I've never heard of this guy Carl cook that was her Her last husband that her most recent ex husband. Yeah yeah yeah and he looking at them right now He's got great hair. I don't know anything about the guy but three years later that it doesn't work out so you know she's there's everybody always says that you know. We love each other still going to different ways. Whatever but you're kind of bummed out so what do you want. You want the guy this really funny. Even if he doesn't look like a leading man but he's he's attractive in a big dopey puppy dog hasn't grown into his hands yet. Kind of way like i. I'm telling you at speaking as a woman. Like i kinda i kinda get it. And he's very self deprecating and he's very chill and clearly he's got all kinds of stuff on the ball because you don't get arianna guerande to agree to marry you. And then rebound into the arms of cape beck and sal unless you've really got something in terms of personality and everything else. Carl cook. was he an actor. I don't know anything about no. I don't think so with horses. I think 'cause keighley's really into horses isn't that how they met like in some who even cares. Oh my god. Why do i even know that. I need the purge that i didn't have room in my brain for that i gotta let that go. This is her second ironclad Pre-nup and. I can't blame her for that. Can you imagine how much money she made off the big bang. Well yeah i mean. They all became multi zillionaires and she's having a great run with her new. tv show. The flight attendant thinks she wanted to emmy or golden globe. Something for it. you know. we're no one to judge the you know some of us. Just you know you fall in love and you believe this time. It's the real deal and let's get a ring on that right. So i don't want to judge that but the pete davidson you look him up in the dictionary under rebound. He's like they stand. Just go to rebound guy right is he is an let me just say you know. I thought that that standup was inappropriate. But he is very gifted what was that he was in a movie About growing up in King of staten island. Staten island. yeah which was very well received. I mean he's shooting shooting a movie with kayla. Welcome now called. Meet cute guy. The guy must have so much charisma and animal magnetism. Well i mean. He ticked off so many people on saturday night live both the audience in the management. But still you know he'd come back so obviously there's some talent they in more ways than one. It's it's bob.

Is we try to make some lemonade out of them recently. We lost the phone number that we've had since the show began in part because at and t. Can't tell us where it's ringing where they're sending the bill as best we can tell it's ringing in an empty warehouse in bulgaria. Nobody's paying for it. So when they they couldn't find it we said well can you. Can we have it back. And they said somebody else hasn't and we said but we have it and they said we don't know who has it and it was an epic game of who's on first that ended up with just giving us a new phone number. We tried a million combinations. But the name bob is so common and we couldn't get a bald so our new numbers eight four four fifty two showers but he's not. That's not that common. Nobody's been named bob in about twenty years. You'd be surprised. How many gutter replacement companies are you know. Turn the knob to bob. That kind of eight. Four four fifty two sherry so yesterday we launched our new phone number and we said that we would give a prize to the first five people to call eight. Four four fifty two sherry and leave a message.

Something eventually is probably going to happen with that phone. It's bobbin the bobbin sherry website. The contest info bob and sheri dot com. Oh got a dam and my facebook from one of our listeners. Who not happy with us. Y'all this is alex. Alex says hey bob and sherri. I know you're never going to see this or read it l. o. l. a. alex. By the way you're wrong. I saw it. Read it and talk about it on the air. Lol i listened to yesterday's show and wait for the whole show to hear what you guys thought about. Madonna at the vm. Ace and you never said a word gas. I'm disappointed. And i. And i read it and i read it a couple times and i want to speak directly to you alex I don't know anyone other than me. That watched the vm. As like my kids are reading. Terrible my kids. Don't even watch the vm. As i watched it you know. I saw the i mean i watched and it was. You know there were some good performances and there was some amazing moments and there was a whole lot of stuff in there where i had to listen to my husband ranting to me about what he thought of why you know. Why won't justin bieber look at the camera when he sings. You know that kind of thing i had. It was nice twice but but he had a hoodie on on on top of his head like he was hiding quite a night at my house. I want you to imagine trying to watch the vm. As with my husband kevin who honestly would like to live without electricity somewhere in the woods it was painful and so when we when we when we started the show yesterday i said to bob maxine dock and backed me up here guys. Did any of y'all watch the vm. Ace no no i. Didn't i saw some clips. You after. But i did not. Yeah i mean every one of them said nine and watch a dachshund night and watching. I knew it was on. Bob said yeah. I saw a couple of clips early this morning. When i got up so we decided maybe nobody really cares about the vm. As but i do want to say that madonna Whatever madonna's workout program is it is the most effective workout program. She walked out onstage. Burberry trenchcoat opened it up. She had this like be. Dsm get up on underneath sky. High stilettos. I don't know how old madonna is. I think she's sixty something. Should early six. Okay that is not what my grandma peg looked like at sixty three hand to guide. Okay her she has legs days. Looks absolutely amazing. She she spoke. And we're gonna play it for you here because i i'm sorry. Disappoint you alex. We're gonna play it for a year. And then she turned around and turned her back to the camera walked off stage. And i don't know what she's doing but that is a gloomiest maximus workout to the extreme. I've never seen anything like it. Here is the opening of the vietnamese. And they said we would hear mother fortieth and that was pretty much madonna's contribution now before the show began bob and everyone else in america that did not watch the vm. As which is ninety. Eight percent of america or more The the show opened with a new york cab yellow checker cab cruising through the streets of manhattan and there's a passenger in the back but you don't see who it is and it's a voice over and you hear of course you know it's madonna because her voices distinctive. I came to new york city at age. Nineteen with nothing. But a pair of dan shoes and a dream. And i got into a cab and i told the cabdriver. Take me to where everything's happening. And he brought me to times square and of course times square is also where. Mtv's first studios and offices all were and so she gets out of the cab. Walks into the building onto the stage takes off the ring coat and demonstrates that somewhere in america there is a workout program can turn you into that. I just don't know what it is. Or what awful sacrifices are involved there you know if anybody owes career to. Mtv in a nut sang she wouldn't have had hits without mtv. But if anybody owes a career to em tv it would be her. Because i don't think anybody took more advantage of a visual music medium better than she did. Mtv actually says that but in a way mtv says that. Madonna made mtv because the first the early days of mtv music videos were pretty stupid. I guess is the best way to put it. They were just russillo other way. Yeah they're warrant that only of them. There weren't that many and what there were. Were just really painfully stupid. If you want to take a trip down memory lane hit youtube for the rolling stones Star at It's start me up. It's it's one of the worst videos you will ever see. It looks like an amateur production on asset. The worst what is mick jagger and david bowie did a dance and in the sudan. That is a registered. Mtv actually gives them a diner credit for being the first video artist the first performer. To understand that music videos should be more than just you singing and lip synching your song that it could be an art form albeit who you know who hates it. You know who hates mtv. Billy joel billy. Joel said listen. You wanted us to do these videos. You kind of controlled the way they were shot so we went ahead and we did them and then five years ten years later you take him put him on another show where a couple of guys. Sit there and make fun of us and our pop-up video on saturday mornings. Mtv does like classic classic music videos. It's the only time of the day or week that mtv actually runs music videos and and. If it's a rainy saturday. And i'm feeling lazy. I will put that on and just laugh. My boom off at how bad some of these videos are. But there's not a single madonna video that comes on where you go. Oh cringe not a one. She controlled journey. Were there on a loading dock. I came out which one it was. separate separate ways. Yeah but that's that's a masterpiece compared to the stones on that. Start me up video straight ahead for anybody. That doesn't like tattoos that thinks they're a trend. That's going to fade away. Think again we're going to tell you the oldest tattoo in the world next. It's bob and sheri read it once again. I can't believe this. Bob and cherries believe even though it seems like everyone in their grandma has tattoos. Now they're still a lot of people that really dislike it and think that it's a fad or a trend or a craze. That's gonna go away but the truth is that tattooing is a very very ancient art and you may not know this but remember when they found oxy the ice man in a glacier in the italian the remains Oxy has sixty one tattoos on his body and those tattoos date back five thousand three hundred years beautiful off. My back makes me so proud. I'm gonna shout it out may no of course. This is the one and only legendary weird out. Let's keep going by what we're ozzy's tattoos. Well x-ray showed that he had arthritis and a lot of abdominal pain and the way that his tattoos replaced in mark. One theory is that they were meant to be medical like therapeutic. Would help him with his pain yeah. Another ancient tattoo is A war chief Whose body was found preserved a tomb in siberia first millennium bc. He was covered with a variety of tattoos. Mostly animals horse ram of fish. All sorts of other kind of half animal. Half monster tattooing in the ancient world looks like it has a whole lot in common with tattooing in the modern world does that. Does that mean that the tattoo spec then located there Shops right next to broken down. Laundromat generally yup at the beach. Yup ancient people were tattooing animals. They felt most represented their own spirit in the way that modern tattoos do the same thing now. Tattoos were really really popular super ingrained in early culture but not everybody loved them like the roman emperor. Constantine he outlawed facial tattoos which is why none of your gladiators had you tattooed on their foreheads. Like modern day because if anybody could have that on their forehead it would have been a gladiator. The right out there with a sword and and you're a lion or another big guy to have a tattoo that goes you couldn't make sense back. In the eighth century pope. Adrian banned tattooing and for about a thousand years. People in europe really did not have any tattoos but everywhere else around the world it kept going and in fact in parts of polynesia asia africa and the americas tattoos are part of communal rights. Passage markings are a sign that you are becoming your moving through the life cycle as you should so nowadays tattoos of course nowadays tattooing It's really common. And you'll see it on grandmas and grandpas and kids and and everybody tattoos now or like a means of self expression it is. It is funny how you will see because they become very very popular over the last. What would you say. Twenty five years that you will see a an elderly woman with With tattoos and it stops you for a minute because for most of us. You know like mike. My grandma shea shea was not having a tattoo on her body my my grandfather had one. He had a big one on his arm. Don't know what it was because it was kind of really did my grandfather. My father's father was kind of a. I was kind of a bad ass back in the day. He was smoking drinking motorcycle riding guy and my father said i did wanna be anything like that. And he wasn't oak. No here's thing here's something to think about that. One theory for why human beings for centuries have wanted to mark our bodies is because of the permanence like you can have a precious piece of crystal and it can shatter. You can have a painting and it can be ripped or lost. You can have a book and it's burned in a fire but when you mark your body with those things that are meaningful to you you have them for the rest of your life and that may be one reason why humans have been tattooing. Since we climbed out of the caves. It really takes a lot of courage to tattoo another person's name on your body. It's usually not a good idea. I mean potsy be iceman. Five thousand three hundred years ago knew better than to put the name diana on his chest new post this up on facebook. Post the link to the weird house onto its bob and sheri instant access to the podcast and fun side. Just download the free bob and sheri app. It is just amazing how human beings will pay sometimes extraordinary amounts of money to in some way in some way to get closer to an idol. somebody that they've admired forever right. You probably saw the news item. That jar of elvis presley's hair was just auctioned off for seventy two thousand five hundred dollars. It comes in a jar and you also get a plane ticket. On which the the king i guess flew along with The man who cut his hair that was his barber. He would bring along his personal barber every once in a while. And that's the The the guy who has the hair or at least his family does. They've kept it in a jar for all these years. Seventy two thousand dollars and not only that going up on the block is michael. Jordan's used underwear. I'm not sure what that's going to bring. But it's going to be up on the auction block now. I know what you're thinking with the used underwear but They're saying we know it's used because it's frayed. Okay so i just make that. I'm surprised michael. Jordan would have frayed underpants. That's prices me know who i am. Yeah it was a trainer like an like an assistant you know to the basketball team who grabbed them and has held onto them for all these years. I'm not surprised because he's wealthy. I'm surprised because he's michael. Jordan and freight underwear seem sloppy for michael jordan doesn't because he so regal you're right and and so focused on like excellence and your underwear and and you know he. He knows who he is. He knows that he asked to present himself. I i've seen him in person outs off of the basketball court two or three times. And he's always so elegantly dressed he he just has a regal miss about him. So you're right about that. But how much is that gonna go for some some guy who's made a lot of money in one wall street and he's got his own bar you know he's got his maybe going to call the man cave it's his own bar rec room pool tables giant tv's and behind the bar. He's got his sports memorabilia. How much is he gonna pay to put behind glass. Michael jordan's boxers. Who got i. I mean here's the thing would he does not briefs by the way i mean i guess yeah i guess that guy would want michael jordan's boxer briefs. How much would he pay. He's got all that money. He's got a sports bar in his basement. he can. He can pretend that it was all for charity. I'm going to go eighteen thousand dollars you know. I can't believe i'm thinking this. But i'm saying is that all provinces you probably right of in it'll be interesting to see. What did you think it was gonna be. I don't know. I mean. I'm looking at elvis's hair here. It's not a big jar of here. It's not like you know it's like a mason jar of hair black hair. Seventy two thousand five hundred dollars. Now elvis is zelda's i understand. That michael is michael. Too but The dna that you would be close to with the kings hair might be somewhat appealing to somebody that is just you know this mega fan of elvis presley. It's his hair. let's say you're you're a mega fan and you're clearly have money because seventy two thousand dollars is a ton of money. You've got the money. You're a mega fan. It's his hair. Come on look alive. Yeah yeah it was alive at one point and And the michael jordan underwear of course was not but i i think eighteen thousand eight thousand five hundred for jordan's underwear sounds about right. I think you would like to have like keith richards hair. I don't think anyone wants his underwear but you would like a big fan now. That doesn't appeal to me. It's never appealed to me stuff from from a celebrity not clothing. I guess if. I had elvis presley's shirt from one of his movies or something like that. That'd be kinda cool johnny depp's hat from one of the pirate movies. I guess that would be cool. But i've never been really drawn to that sort of thing. I haven't either like i can't even. I think you have to have that ridiculous amount of money that you're not sure what to buy next. You've got all the tools and you happen to be a fan of somebody. And so you buy their hair or their tooth or their shoe or whatever it would happen to be. i don't i don't really get it either but if i were choosing between someone's hair and someone's underwear probably the hair. How about yeah. Yeah it sounds. It's obviously it's going to put some more personal but you know it was a living organism of some type. Well they also say. Be very careful about meeting your idols. Because you may be disappointed. I'm having some thoughts about my idols. Underpants disappointment i'm just going to go with the hair. Charlie sheen's oh well. I wouldn't need to worry about. Then they'll stand up on their own. Bob and sheri baden sherry swag in our store. Bobbins sherry dot com mentioning last week on the show that i've been watching nothing but you documentaries because there's a whole if you have showtime J.j abrams the bad robot. People put together a new ufo series and other four episodes so far and It's it's i mean a lot of it is right stuff that you're you're going to have picked up in the news because the there's a lot of focus on those navy videos and The pentagon and all of that But so i'm in the process of talking about this and one of our listeners. Daniel sent me a link to an article and it's about what's happening at stanford university where They have this ion beam telescope not telescope microscope. And they are using it to examine some fragments that are allegedly from ufo crashes. And here's what's really so thank you daniel. It was a fascinating article. So here's what's super interesting about that. They've already discovered that these materials whatever they are are manufactured not natural. And here's the thing that really gets your attention and again this is happening at stanford university not in my cousin pat pets basement. I just wanna make sure we have a clear distinction okay. Pat pat ate his own stock while it was still as foot stanford university two very different places. One of the things that they've found in the process of this is that from a basic elemental standpoint. These things make no sense on earth. The scientists who's analyzing the samples Using this multiplexed ion beam Microscopic thing Says that i. At the microscopic level the atomic of anything is impossible to fake. Look you can fake a lot and there have been so many hoaxes so many faked photos. Fake videos you can do that. But at the microscopic level you cannot fake the atomic structure and so when his name was dr nolan when he put some of the fragments from these alleged ufo crashes into the vacuum chamber of this ion beam microscope. He said this is manufactured. And it's not natural here. On earth we build our world with eighty elements. But when we look at this atomic structure of this material somebody is building their world with two hundred and fifty. Three different isotopes. This not anything we have. This is not anything we do. So you believe. It don't believe it stay skeptical. I'm just sharing the story. That daniels had me. Because i thought it was super interesting. It was. I have a question. How did pat pat get his name. Because it's a question and the answer could be unsettling but it is which is rare. My no i know after this really brilliant explanation of what you were describing you expecting that question. But and i was listening to everything you were saying but i just i had an okay. Your name is pat. Where's the second pat. Come from pat sad head at one point. Would you say you know. I'm not three anymore. I'm pat. We'll see this is why i say you have a very very busy bream. And that's why you do what you do for a living. You're busy brain was like standford. Isotopes table of elements alien wreckage pat pat. And it grabbed onto that. It's pet's name. So how did he come up. Why do they keep calling in. Pat pat pat. Pat is the youngest of five. And i think that his next older sibling could not say patrick. So instead said pat pat and it stalled. so yeah. It's like shea shea say grandmother yeah it's it. Yeah that makes sense. I understood that whole lot. More than the other stuff you re talking about. I thought you were gonna ask. How did he eat as sock off of his foot. Well i explain that to you before he pulled on a thread. That was loose. And the threat. I'll be darned. If it didn't begin unraveling the whole sock so. My graham had made him a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallow in it and he was pulling the thread dipping in the hot chocolate. And then eating it. Until the sock was unraveling. I understood his his doing that. More than what you were talking about to. I and i remember that. How could you not think the ask myself. I have an easier time understanding how a kid could eat zone sock than i do. How you could be looking at the atomic structure of material that makes no sense from an earth standpoint. I agree with you on that totally. Listen i'm at the point with the way things have been going for the last few years. The aliens are coming down. Go ahead maybe you heart that bad. I'm ready well. Here's the thing. We have a different standard of what that bad could look like. True true very very true. Upon a time fire-breathing headed extraterrestrial beings with laser. Gun is would have been scary but now know. Now it's kind of. It's tuesday sherry with the free bob and sheri app okay. So i wrote down four tweets that i found online while i was just perusing one website or another and i put them together. They're not hysterical By any stretch of the imagination. But i found them to be interesting and i would like to share them right now. The first one is from somebody who's handle is meek and meek says adulting is when you put the four dollar in ninety seven sent meet back because you found some for four dollars and seventy two cents. That's so me the next one is wrong. I mate first mate says never take a vacation always neglect your family. And you can be as successful as me. A mid level manager at state farm. Now i want you to think about that. And there's nothing wrong with being mid level manager at state farm. But you know. It's not one of the more glamorous. Gigs i guess you could get if you gave up all of the time with your family or a great deal of it or vacations or a great many of them and you find yourself right there. I think people are reassessing in some cases what they're doing in their lives and that's why there's so many help wanted signs because folks are saying. Wait a minute. I'm putting in sixty hours this week amid level executive somebody who is my counterpoint in the next In the next town just got fired. 'cause there you know trimming the staff one of my doing here. Is there something else that i would like. I think that's what's going on. This is from camera thank you. This is from k. Rob my goal was to have ten thousand dollars saved by the end of twenty twenty one. I am already at eight dollars and thirty two cents. I wonder if some folks you know. Because they weren't spending money on dry cleaning or the you know the they put off. They did not take vacation because of all the stuff that's going on they save that money and the dry cleaning money and the going out money in the bar and all of that. I wonder if some folks you know did kinda tonnetto little bit and the put it into savings that they just brought more crap on amazon. Yeah that's about right you so funny also. I also wonder if having more time at home prompted more people to finally floss as they've been instructed kentucky no maybe not maybe not And this one is from pompeo and potato said. I just did my taxes. I should be in jail by friday. I have never done my own taxes. I've always even when i was making. I mean just terrible money just barely enough to cover. food I always had somebody else do the taxes i have. Not there wasn't expensive. You know was pretty easy going. H and r block liberty. Or whatever. But i have not done my own taxes since i got out of college because i was afraid i would end up in tax jail. I don't even the most basic form i don't understand. And here's how. I know that that's true. Because both of my kids had to file taxes for their part time jobs using the simplest form that the irs makes right taxes for dummies. And there were things on there that i was like. I don't know what this means. I have no idea how to do that. No you know of all the things that have come to light over the last several years i think one of the things it's it's top five anyway. That has ticked me off more than anything else is that there are some not all but some very rich people that don't pay any tax. They pay nothing. Has that happened. I just i know somebody might be able to shelter i. It's just amazing to me. It's just absolutely amazing. I asked an actual accountant this question. Not all that. Long ago i said. Let me ask you something always it. The jeff bezos has taken a joy ride on a space dildo pay zero taxes. What my brother and his wife are teetering on the edge of being like losing everything because of what they have to pay taxes. And you know what my count said he goes. We'll share a lot of folks. Have that question zone. That's the answer that a lot of us have that question. Well it all comes down to congress you know. what are you doing about it. What are you doing about it.

And sheri archives at bob and sheri dot com you can use just shot bobbins sherry dot com so many of our listeners have reached out that have heard me say that i was really sad and having a hard time with having both my kids away at school and i got so much. Awesome advice and suggestions people that have done this already. They're further down the road ahead of me telling me how long probably going to be sad. And then you know. I'm going to be able to feel all kinds of different ways and about seventy five percent of the advice that i got included the phrase girl. It's time to organize your pantry. So i laugh. You left after. I mean after the first dozen girl you need to organize that pantry girl pitcher organized. I thought you know what there must be something to this. This must be therapeutic like all these women and even a bunch of dads who reached out. We're like all hall. You need organize your pantry. So i organize my pantry. It took me three days. I start it after. We finished work Last friday and i worked straight through and finally finished it and my pantry. It looks like something off of tv. Show like here's the question. Here's the question. Here's the question. Where's the question. How long does that last well. Apparently since it's just me and my husband it'll last forever because we don't have any kids here we go. I mean i have like the rice in a mason jar that says rice and powder sugar has its own jarred. The all-purpose flower has its own jar. As i'm going through in organizing the pantry. I'm realizing how hard it is to live with with someone who has. Adhd 'cause my husband if he if he needs something and he doesn't open a cabinet and see it instantly with his eyeballs. He'll just go go on. he'll go by over one. Which is how we ended up with so many cans of the same thing bottles of the same kind of salad dressing and folks. I have a lot of baking soda. Like i have all the bay if you're wondering where the baking soda is. It's at my house. I have all of the baking soda. But as so. I've got all this all these duplicates panko breadcrumbs out the wazoo like i could. I could bread arkansas and deep fry it and have panko leftover so much of everything. So i decided once pincher got organized and it was very satisfying and it was a great distraction. And the whole time. I was working on that project. I wasn't sad or weepy at all. So thank you to every single person out there. The told me to blow my nose. And we're gonna is my pantry. So now i'm faced with all of the duplicates that we have and i told cav were eating this stuff and we're not buying any new food until we eaten our way through this food which is why when we finish up the show today. I will be googling recipes that includes sardines pumpkin. Puree mehta's like i have piles of the most random things because my husband every once in a while we'll we'll announce i need to eat more fish and l. by sardines cosco well when you buy sardines at costco folks. You don't just get one thing of sardines you get ten. Things of sardis and each can of sardines has enough preserved oily. Nasty little fish for two and a half servings so that's that's twenty to thirty two servings of sardines that we have we have so freaking much and so he'll announce that he's going to eat more fish and he's going to start having sardines on crackers for lunch and that lasts one day. Do you know why that is because that's sad. That's sad an awful and gross in. He hated it and so here. We are with all the Sardines in the world. Can i tell you what. I bought two weeks ago surge sardines. Are you going to start eating them for lunch bob to get more mega threes. I opened up the sardines. And you can't eat the entire can. You just can't so. I got it for work and i got Two maybe three sardines and it was pretty good. You know i closed it up. And then i put it in a little sandwich thing but then i forgot about the sightings and the sardines were in there for like five days so then i saw them or thought about them and i took them out and i went Let's see they're supposed to be like guests. They go bad after three days. They'll piss their preserve links. So yeah they never go bad. You never i. Are you sure about that. Like pretty damn sir. Yeah i'm pretty surti a pretty pretty.

Sheedia Jansen heysheedia.com

"<music> the hi everyone and welcome to the good pod. I'm your host care still in and today okay. I have my friends shadia with me so thanks so much for joining. Oh you're welcome is so exciting to here yeah so tell everyone everyone a little bit about you and your business like everyday life. Just anything you want to share with us sure so. My name is shadia. I it was very interesting about these. I come from the caribbean island of curious which is sonny always and place. Thanks a lot of people don't know where it's at yeah. Do you live there now. Yes okay cool. That's awesome yeah. It's some on southern side of the caribbean and it's such islands so so people like me that never travel anywhere where the caribbean islands art art all right so there on if you're thinking of the u._s. It's right between like the north american south american in in that c- in between because ultra america's like to your left and they're attached to north and south but the caribbean he's like all the islands sprinkled in the sea between that yeah so <hes>. So how long have you been in business. You can say sons marcher originally. Oh agnes cited like the end of december. It's like a new thing this year. I'll ever have had like my own. Sates asked okay. He's just been as passionate as i am right now but what i'm doing yeah that's really awesome. Tell us kind of why someone might like seek you out to be their business business coach like what what is something that sets you apart from other coaches. I think for me it's really working on the fun things fund side of things and making it as easy as possible because for a long time i learned a lot of strategies so i know youtube that you've strategies facebook. Strategy instagram is like those three especially email marketing and i was doing things based on what other people was telling me to do so you know like the whole follow these steps to get this. Whatever results assaults and i follow those steps <unk> religiously without enjoying it or was doing it for myself. It was yes. I was doing it for myself in the sense of moneywise but not because i even those steps. I just really wanted the money inside. I always say like it's not the focus on the money. The money will come because you're doing something that you love and really creating that base and foundation. That's fun exciting and that makes you want to continue in business yeah. Oh yeah that's definitely a that is so true because i started out to like a virtual assistant and i hated it so had to like figure something else out. I was like i do not want to <hes> mundane like boring tasks for people that is not why i wouldn't into business for myself so i had to like really eh evaluate like what my passions are what my strengths are and that's what led me to what i do now so yeah i totally understand. It takes a little while. It's like whenever you like. I always i always think about it like it's like whatever you are eighteen years old and you moved to college and have no idea what you and a major in so you just try everything and then you finally figure it out after college about ten years later like me. The truth is always wanting to be a coach which i just never felt good enough for like anybody what listened to me yeah and i thought it should be you know i need to have a successful business doing doing something that late and making a lot of money and then i can teach somebody else how to do it yeah but it doesn't work that way. Yeah i totally agree with that too. I think that it has it also has to do with like your prior training and your knowledge college 'cause like me. I like read everything and like i'm always <hes> staying up on my current current practices like you know so i feel like i i have a ton of knowledge and it was social media and stuff like that so then i'm like you know i could teach someone else this and even though you know i don't have a hundred thousand followers are more. I'm still like gaining followers and gaining in clients from what i'm posting so obviously i'm doing something right and so it's like <hes> yeah. You shouldn't definitely shouldn't like get down on yourself alf. If you're if you know you're not making a hundred thousand dollars a week like some people say that they are which there's no way they are but whatever and i think i just think that if you're if you're confident in yourself like you can you can help anybody guardian do anything. I just think that that's the big that's a huge factor. In and being an entrepreneur is just like always being confident in your skills sales and that you can help other people because that's really what it's all about yeah and you don't need you like gain any kind of diploma anything to know a skill you know yeah i struggled to make my own business struggled to kind of decide what i wanted. That's why i teach people don't make the same mistakes yeah and you are steps to get you there quicker so you don't have to take forever yeah and what i can teach but somebody else might be able to teach i dunno construction might be able to be a good mom and teach that like there's so so many things and of course we're talking about coaches right now. But of course there's also products if you use the product and it works for you or you need to better it create your own. You have a story there that you can help other sweat yeah exactly. That's what it's all about for sure. Yes us all right so the next the next sections are going to be well. The first section was also about the character. I based the questions on the characters of the good place which was harder than the t._v. Show on n._b._c. starring kristen bell and ted danson and they should sponsor me already because i love them both so much and so the first section was definitely eleanor talking about yourself and talking yourself up and yeah so the next section is going to be about chidi and have you watched the show before. I've actually never watched it but i've seen the trailers so many times okay got inside. You should watch it. It's on netflix and it's really good the second season should on netflix pretty soon or i think it's actually the continuation of the first season so i won't spoil any plot points for you because it actually is a really great show but uh-huh the character chidi he is the one that he like. He was an ethics professor and he he just can't can't make a decision. So has there ever been a time where you are unable to decide on something important. Yes the i think. The first thing that comes to mind is of course the whole business success when we're we're talking about ready. It's <hes> i weird feeling like looking back at it. Now i can see it from my perspective now but back then i just felt so oh lost and it was like i knew i wanted to business but i what what should it be and i could not decide on anything because none of the felt folks like the thing for me. Yeah totally totally been there. So what helped you to decide just like like what we're talking about about like. Just your your figured out what your passions are. What brought you to those realizations. It was really figuring out what my hi passions are. <hes> first of all understanding that business is not. It's not something that you do to make. You feel bad. Yeah yeah so that money. I think that comes from the employee mindset that we have to work for years doing something. We don't like so that at our reward is retirement with a lot of money invoked vacationing on beach. That's like the mentality as alar allers again and i was second at least that's kept me from enjoying business or thinking businesses something that can be enjoyed so that was the first step to understand that it can be enjoyed and was looking at my passions and realizing what i always wanted to do and that was working with women and then it was knowing that i was good enough to start doing it right then and there yeah that's awesome yeah all right so the next the next question i'm going to ask is based on the character jason thin. What's his name is john you at the beginning of the show and so there's a little spoiler plot point but doesn't really reveal anything about the show oh so that's okay all right so he comes into the good place in he is unable to speak because he's a monk and whenever he died ride he was taking a vow of silence. So has there ever been a time that you really wanted to speak up but you were unable to oh yeah. I think my childhood is like the first thing that comes to mind for that because the way i was raised in you listen to your parents. You don't ask questions <hes> at least most mostly by my dad my mom soglo more flexible with i'm the girl that asked that needs to know everything. Everything like google is my best friends. I really love knowing things and understanding the inner workings of everything and so that really led me to a place where i did speak up about a lot for a really long time and if we're thinking about like one particular instance let me think nothing comes to mind. It was a really long time that i can speak up about anything that i agreed not agreed with and one thing that it does come to mind is for a while. I was suicidal. Oh wow and i wasn't speak all lead to because i wasn't allowed to speak up and for the longest time i didn't tell anybody about it and eventually did start talking about it but so i think a lot of people don't know that it's an interesting part of my past yeah yeah. That's that's definitely something that a lot of people struggle with so. I'm sure <hes> sharing your story will definitely help so help other people so thanks for sharing that assure so okay so the next character that i base this question on is michael and he's the one that's played by ted danson who is the best ever and i just love him in every way so so on on the good place he's like the the guy that's over the town of the good place and he's the one that created it so if you could could create your perfect town what would you build and why so just the town right yeah yeah. I think it would be a town where first of all everyone's equal where people are supported in the sense of <hes> they know that the sky's the limit like even though the town might be small you could do whatever you want and be whatever you want yeah okay yan dan berry installing and people that are powerful and the possibilities are endless. Yeah that's awesome. So what kind of things would you like to see in the town like. Why would you want it to be near a beach or big city or what. What is your perfect her. What is your like your ideal town in your head for me. It will be like a peninsula aw god is surrounded by spe- but also has a city in the middle and access to other places this okay. I guess that comes from my my own country. That doesn't connect anywhere yeah but i do love it did start wish land access to other countries. Yes so speaking of that. So how do you get do you just have to. Is there like an airport. We're here at yeah. There's an international airports that has flights okay well. That's good that connects you everywhere yeah so so do you. Do you travel very often or do you. Do you say they're mostly right now travel about once a year but for a while allah was a missionary for three year into so many countries because of that. That's an yeah so oh. That's my background well. That's cool so what <hes> what kind of missionary work came into come with the organization asian called us with submission and i was kind of like taking lessons to become more to be more active in the performing arts okay. So what is it like eight and then i took more dance modern dance okay. I was like yes okay was <hes> christian but non nomination which loved yeah well. That's cool yeah i i might i grew up in the church but my dad is a baptist preacher so and my brothers youth minister so i know i know that live very well but <hes> yeah that. I don't think i could be a missionary though it takes. It takes a really strong person. So where did you go so when you were a missionary so i started in trinidad went to uganda. Jamaica believes these montana and cambodia. That's one tag u._s. U._s._a. Yeah that's crazy so you are just all over the place. Yeah sand like smaller stops in between but i was like the place i spent as well science okay so did you <hes> was it like through a church like your home church or it was just through that organization listen. It was just that organization. I kind of met somebody that was doing. It and i just decided. That was what i wanted to do. Wow that's really yeah. It was fun yeah so you did that like you did that for three three years. How long ago was that. It was fresh out of high school so ten years ago. I just came back from in uganda. You'd say okay started eleven years ago. Okay wow so <hes> <hes> so how. How old are you right now twenty nine twenty nine okay. I'm thirty three so i was like you're kind of close to rage then yeah that's cool and by the way i talking going back to college thing. I didn't go to college because i couldn't decide <hes> oh that's funny. I was listening. Yes i was doing what i wanted to do but i wanted to study the every seen and that wasn't a major yeah. I went to three colleges and whenever i i went to college i was like i want to major in like <hes> biblical studies so i went to this school and i tried to do it and i hated it and so then i changed my major to radio television because i wanted to be on the radio really bad and now with podcast i can be. I can do whatever i want so that's that's cool but i just really wanted to be on the radio so i did that and and then i found out that i wouldn't graduate whenever i like i. It was already a semester late but i found out that if i did radio television i wouldn't graduate till like a year late and i was like well. My parents won't go for that one so i switched to public relations and so that i graduated with public relations but at the time i am i was like i just wanted to do something fun and i didn't realize like everyone and their dog was getting p._r. Degrees and taking all the jobs so it. It really sucked it. I'd never i never got a p._r. Job so that's that's how it was for me. Love radio makes makes a lotta sense. 'cause you're really good on this. Oh well thank you thank you yeah. I love like i always wanted to do. I used to listen to the show kid craddock back in the morning and dallas and he was pretty famous <hes> and he's still he's his show still is he died a few years ago which was really sad but he was always like my favorite and i listened to him every morning and i was just like man 'cause they talk about like celebrity gossip and like what was what's going on in dallas and <hes> just how their personal lives where it was kind of like a reality show but like morning in the morning and so i was. It's always like i want to do that. I want to be in a studio at four a._m. And talk to people about random stuff but now that i have have my own podcast i can do it from anywhere and not at four a._m. So that's even better. They sense yeah. I thought about doing it every day day. Like what do you mean like recording podcasts. I record a lot so so but i don't i should i mean i could put out podcast every day. If i just like really wanted to i mean maybe it's something i could think about in the future. It just takes aches. It just takes a little time to edit them and so i'm a perfectionist and i like for everything to sound perfect so i'm sure that like the last few episodes. I've been trying like okay. I'm just going to like listen to a little bit of this. Make sure sounds good and just publish it 'cause. I don't want it to be like two edited yeah but anyways i don't want there to be like loud clicks or like me smacking or breathing heavily into the microphone like so i i like to listen to. I like to listen to it all but one day maybe if i can get someone to edit my stuff then you know i could. I could put out a lot more more but editing is what takes the longest amount of time unfortunately yeah like my coaching like my business. Strategy comes array of like you should get somebody to get it and yeah yeah. I i mean i should. I don't bring right now. I don't bring it in any money from the podcast so if anybody wants to go to patriarch dot com slash the good pot and donate to the good pods so i can hire someone to edit and put <music> out more episodes then you're more than welcome to do that and you get like <hes> if you donate like twenty dollars a month to get an ad in one episode in a month so that's pretty good <hes> but you can donate as little as one dollar a month so yeah if anyone wants to do that listening today just go to the good pot i mean patriots dot com slash the good pod and check it out so thanks for let me plug by my my paycheck tehran all supporting others vote my episode coming out of course gonna put that in there. Oh thanks that'd be it's. It's a commercial for business to any bucks. Yes yeah for sure he <hes>. I you just twi- record something or you. Could you could call in like you're doing now and record some. I could record your little commercial or even. If you want me to do a commercial marshall than i could and then i would just put it in one episode a month until like because the payment is recurring so yeah yeah okay so next question this one's based on one of my favorite characters names tehrani honey and when she was alive she she like was a socialite. I guess you would say and she knew a whole bunch of famous people. Also i always a mike <hes> wish i was her so if you were a socialite and you could hang out with anyone on a day to day basis who would it be. Wow for. There's actually two people that come to mind so you might be surprised. I one is oprah which i think a lot of everybody loves oprah. Yeah kobe bryant okay so did you just did you just like grow up watching him play and love okay. I love basketball. He was my he is like in school like his determination as mindset. I've always been obsessed with mindset. <hes> really triggered me too like go for your dreams go for after what she wants all these things and just his story how determined it is is how determined determined he is very inspirational to me yeah i i am i grew up of course a mavs fans so we were told to hate the lakers and i never really liked kobe bryant until i went to college and one of my friends there played basketball and he like loved kobe bryant and he always told me like he's the best and blah blah blah and i'd be like no dirk dirksen best <hes> but but i also really love basketball the mavs really sut now but that's okay and i love. I love kobe. Yeah i mean i love lebron james so and lebron. James is a laker now so so now you need to be later yeah yeah i mean i guess they will but because i love lebron i'll follow him to the ends of the earth now. That's the one that i think that do you like lebron james either eleven marinho damn why not at people talk about kobe bryant so i think it's funny. I think he's very arrogant. No no i didn't know how much to his story or anything like signing rookie. Yeah well entity dismissive. Sorry were you a warriors fan than or are you a warriors fan now into basketball to be actually 'cause. It used to take up all my time. Okay i need to do any. Did you know every player. I need to know what they're doing and understanding the plays that takes a long time yeah yeah. No i think you you should look up about lebron. Because of course he has to be arrogant because he's i feel like when they're playing basketball. A lot of people especially lee someone like lebron james they have to kind of play that like character because whenever he's on the core he's like king james and he's like the leader and so of course he has to be arrogant because he's that good. I mean michael. Jordan was arrogant but if you you like research is life i just i just absolutely love him because he he's very like charitable to his city and and he like he has like the school that he's opening up in ohio and he's also just like a super funny like down to earth guy like they're only reason he went to l. a.'s because he wants to be a movies and he's probably gonna retire. So oh hi i mean we'll see we'll see how it goes i i would. I don't think that he is there for like i think he signed for. What three years ears so i don't. I don't really think i mean maybe if it doesn't work out. He might go somewhere else but i'm hoping that he went there for the right reasons thousand. I'm not really sure all all. I can figure as he wants to. His family already lives there because he wants to be in movies and his kids go to school there and all that stuff so m m make sense that he would more logistics than anything but ah he i mean. I just think he's like a stand up. Dude plus. We're the same age and i used to watch him play whenever i was in high school whenever he was on e._s._p._n. And i just i thought he was the coolest dude ever so. I me and my brother like obsessed with him but i know a lot of people hate him. So it's i chance yeah. I didn't like him when he played the mavericks. I mean whenever he played for the heat. I really hated him but i i did like seeing him lose but then i did really really love c._n._n. Winning cleveland that was just it was it was a beautiful thing thing he deserved them but but as far as being arrogant. I think it's like with any sport you kind of have to go out there with that arrogance and i think that's kind of what makes them so good but that's just because i love him. Make sense because like i said people see that about kobe bryant all the time so yeah. Oh yeah uh-huh story. I guess i don't feel that way yeah. I don't know lebron story at all and to learn that yeah yeah oh you should just look him up but i think he's and he's a really good guy but not only that like like politically like he he kind of he stood out against things that donald trump had said and i don't know i admire i admired him for that because he didn't have to say anything and and i don't know he's he's just a good dude in my book all right so i'm sure that i will get like like half of my listeners. Since i'm from texas they will never listen to me again but that's okay. I'm fine with it. Dan become patriarch. Yes thank you all right. The last question is if if you could magically directly teleport yourself to any t._v. Show world where would you live. I think a combination of survivor and real housewives of beverly hills you do you like do you like real housewives so funny. I would have never thought you liked that. I never thought i would and then i started watching watching it a few months ago and i'm like at the last season now yeah since i started watching a few months ago to and then i got caught up like the fastest ever yeah it's. It's like the nicest thing to watch when you've been you know freaking out about outs something in business. Just wanna be going to another world. Yes it really is. I'm watching while i i'm all caught up with real housewives of new york and if you haven't watched that yet you have got to. It's the best i'll go. I'll go there next i have you have you watched any of the other ones ones or just beverly hills. I've actually watched potomac okay. I've never watched that one. Is it good it's compared to beverly houses a a bit orienting. They're all about trying to be a opera and there's one of the best like they called the grand down and inch. She leads the rules. Basically of how you have to act you can't do this or jews sat in until back so now my gosh yeah. I thought the world was interesting but compared to beverly hills. It's not as entertaining yeah. We'll beverly hills is so good and i mean the last season really sucks compared to the other seasons. The seasons with brandy and kim or gold like that is reality t._v. Gold like brady kim and lisa lisa arena. It doesn't get any better than those people on television and if they don't do something to that cast next season. I don't know how it's going to be so boring sad. I really don't like to repeat no. No one likes to eat and i think that's kind of the point of dreams. I don't understand that chick at all. She's research especially yeah. I think everybody i think this last season was the reason why the reason why it didn't work because erica. Jane had to become a villain which we don't wanna see erica jane being mean and then and then debris is just <music> a terrible human and then we saw like erica jane like kind of liking during the season. I don't know i think i think erica jane needs to get out of the dark side and everyone's favorite little crazy girl again and then they need to bring back like brandy or someone and that's what i think but i think if i think they bring brandy back then lisa vander pump would leave but i don't know maybe not. It's funny how that relationship worked out though i think i find lisa vendor pump a very interesting character because she she never shows emotion but <unk> early. She has a lot of them yeah no. I really likely savannah pump. A lot of people don't like her but i don't know i always bonded with her because of how she is with dogs and i love dogs. Thanks so. I'm always like oh my gosh. I love her so much. She's the best but i i've never watched. <hes> watched vander pump rules. I started watching it but it's more about the staff that it is yeah harder yeah i didn't i started watching it to everybody loves it and everyone's it's like you should watch. It and i'm like i'm watching real housewives of new york so i'll to whenever every day and now i'm caught up with new york but me and my husband like i think my my husband watches it with me. He watched both beverly hills and lower with me and he he loves new york so i highly i i highly recommend it. It's way like at the beginning. It's it started out like as one of the first one so. It's like very old but i still say watch. Watch the beginning because it's good and start washing in the middle yeah the whole thing yeah it changes changes. It changes a lot so like the first the first four seasons. There's basically the same people in it and then <hes> then they switch up the cast and like for them bethany bethany frankel. Do you know who that is yeah. She's on it but she's only she was only on like the first three seasons and then she leaves and then she comes back and season seven but even the ones where she's not on. It are really good so oh. I highly recommend it. Even the new season of it is fantastic there you will like. I think you'll really like it. It took me a while to like it. Though oh i will say because you know like in beverly hills like hile you automatically bond with kyle because she's such a good person and yes. It's like this woman is just beautiful and you automatically bond with her and at least there's someone to hold onto the moral compass and in that show and like you'll wanda kind of becomes that later on but like in new york you don't bond with them. They're just terrible. They're all terrible terrible so you kind of have to like find little nuggets of goodness latched onto but but for me it's like i guess because i watched it all that now. Even though they're all terrible i love them. I love them all. They're all great so tom now. That's what gave the whole real housewives a bad name then the new york jerks raising to hurt yeah yeah well now that it's been ten seasons for new york. I feel like <hes> the ca the cast they have now there are like the good ones and the bad ones to me <hes> but even the bad ones on new york are so funny that you dislike. They're hilarious. You will laugh your butt off and there's like such good like if when you you get to the episode you'll be like oh yeah. This is a gift like you can find so many. There's so many like quotable lines from new york which they're not on on. They're not really on beverly hills and there's there's lines that people like if you quote them in a crowded bar tin girls will like laughter butts off because i know what you're talking about. It's like it's crazy yeah it. It's just one of those shows. It's like it's just so quotable and fun so okay. I know that you might not like them. At first she might be like oh these people but it gets better. It does definitely gets better adds anything move to new york. Maybe i know that they would eat her alive in new york. Oh my gosh i've been watching. I did start last night the real housewives of dallas and now that's it's pretty funny. Actually i actually am enjoying it so we'll see how how it goes. Yes yeah you get recognized her places there right yeah but they show i don't know. I don't even know where these people live because they show. It's supposed to be real housewives of dallas alice but they show a lot of fort worth so. I don't know if i don't really know dallas is such a small. I mean it's not a small city but it's small small and a lot of people don't live there because like mostly what stairs like high rise apartments and stuff like that and the women all live and like golf courses and length these huge huge houses so i'm not really sure where they live. I i don't know if they live. They might live in like highland park which is like a little neighborhood like right. Let's close to downtown dallas or uptown dallas as they call it but <hes>. I don't know i've tried to look up last night. Like where exactly do they live live but i couldn't really find anything so i'm not sure marketing say the real housewives of fort worth is in sound is interesting. Testing is dallas yeah well. Most mostly people just referred to that area d._f._w. But i guess like that didn't didn't sound good. Either in dallas is more recognizable. There was a show dallas too yeah right yeah but i i mean i've liked it so far. The reason why i'm watching it is because the third season comes out when new york is over like in the middle of august so i might maybe i can. Maybe maybe i can catch a getting your your share yeah. There's only there's only like ten episodes in the first season and then twelve in the second so oh they're shorter seasons because they're actually putting putting them in a primetime slot this 'cause they're taking new york slot. When after the finale i guess so. This is the first time they've had a prime time slot on bravo so i guess we'll we'll see how it goes. I hope that it does well. I think it's cool. I just think it's cool to see people with like the same accent as me like at the same at the same places and i don't know. I think that it's it's cool but who knows who knows if they're actually like. I don't know if they're are actually like from dallas. Some of them said that they've lived there for like fifteen years and it's all about like the charity scene and all this stuff which i will never be involved in so i'll have no idea but <hes> yeah it's it's pretty interesting though to see it in dallas dallas yeah and instead of having the you know like on new york they hold apples and on <hes> beverly beverly hills. What do they have diamonds dallas. They have stars cowboys stars. It's pretty cool. That was the thing either all different different eight different songs and there's different. There's like different music on all of them so like when you watch new york it sounds like sex in the city music and and whenever you watch beverly hills it's like that <hes> i don't really know how to explain it but it definitely sounds like it's in beverly hills and it kind of sounds like oh i don't know anyways and then dallas is like it's our country so their their first ad i was watching it and and it was like they were out in like an oilfield cows and stuff like that like people like dallas is like it takes a long time to get to the country if you're in dallas like people don't understand that there's no cows. There's no horses like you're in the city. It's gonna take you at least an hour to get to a field to see a cow now. You're in dallas so i didn't see cows down yeah so it's but it's so funny the whether they like portray it. They're like that's all marketing. You know yes. I do think of dioramas or not thomas but texans. I do think you know the planets shirts. The boots hats sir and stuff like that but i didn't see any of that. No you definitely will not see that too much and i mean like where i'm i am from a really small town then yeah you'll see that but like dallas no unless you go to <hes> billy bob's at the stockyards yards in fort worth and like then you'll see a lot of cowboys like dancing and listening to country music but other than that i mean it's very it's not like super common and then most of the time at the stockyards like those people don't live in fort worth. They live out in the country raising their cows so anyways. It's just funny to me. I grew up without. I've only ridden a horse once in my alive and i've i hate cows. They scare the crap out of me so i'm not like a country girl i know my i lived in a small town yes but not a like out in the country riding four wheelers with pows girl no not me getting dirty but for fun like hiking on a being a nature those kinds of snakes got like tending to cows olsen. Listen that coup smell. No i don't mind as much like some people really can't stand it. I don't mind it as much but i don't wanna be covered in it. No like my. I used to go to my grandparents house. I was little and ride four wheelers with my with my pat ball going out to check on the cows the most country yeah i ever got and most of the time he would ask if i wanted to go and i'd say no because the cows scared me really bad you get close to cows. They're freaking huge huge and they are terrifying. They could eat you at any moment so i was always really scared of them and i've always been. I'm really scared of horses so yeah. A horse wants yeah. There's frigging scary. They can kick you they. They're huge. No i'll stick to dogs. Thank you all right so yeah. We've been chatting a lot about housewives.

My wife has a wedding cake decorating company so i do the baking side of that. That's cool. That's a lot of baking shows. Does i've been watching zoom. Bows just deserts. Have you watched it on netflix. It's really good and then i watch yes. I've watched nailed eldest and those people make me so nervous. They are the worst. I can cook better known the general manager for a company that is now on t._v. Currently actually the <hes> dallas cakes. They're called unbelieving on the food network together later night shows but yet. She was german editor for that for that bakery for five five uson. They're on t._v. Now that's crazy. I've also watched. It's not a baking is just like a cooking show but it's <hes> the one where were they cook with marijuana. Have you watched that one something high yeah cooking on high yes so yeah and and like one of the girls that's on a lot of the episodes. If you've ever watched the chelsea handler documentary jupp chelsea does she has one about drugs rugs and she gets like oliver friends together and they just eat food full of marijuana and get really high. It's a great episode but <hes> that's one of the girls that cooked good for her on. That episode is like one of the main chefs on that show yes. It's been on my list to watch really cool. I've never eaten food with marijuana and so people are republicans think that i get high all the time but i do not. I didn't find it very interesting. It's the way to get into the highest neither but i've heard stories of like the edibles yeah. I'm sure it is so i don't know but <hes> yeah i just stories <hes>. There's a there was a comedian on that chelsea a handler documentary her name's fortune teamster dino sean name is fantastic. I do not know the name though she's awesome but she was. She's been on the mindy project. She's like a <hes>. She's a lesbian obviously with our name. You should know that already but she's like a lesbian like a bigger lesbian girl and she's really funny and she's got like a southern accent but that she was talking about how i'm talking about dinner. It's hilarious to listen to. I love it. She said she thought when someone was taking her home. She was it's like i thought i was a realtor and i was telling everyone with the houses. I like how much the houses call by. I know what you're talking about. I would love to see her. Try try to be a realtor for real well. She says she'd never smoked. She never even smoked weed. Maybe yeah oh she had zero and she said she ate all all the foods. 'cause it was so good. She said she ate like every last bite and then she's like what is the equivalent of weed that was into here and she goes. It's like if you smoked four joints. I was like oh go nuts but if you've never seen seen that episode it's pretty good. You're adding a lot of stuff to my watch. I love tv. I love it okay so this podcast. I need to ask ask questions about <hes> like i said i based my questions off the characters of the good place so you don't technically have to watch the show but i just kind of like take their characteristics sticks and watching the preview. I'm definitely interested in the basis of these questions so you saw kristen bell on the show. Her name is eleanor and she really loves to talk about herself health and she also like you saw that one part where she's like hiding the shrimp yell if you're at a fancy party. What food dude would you wanna hide and take home with you calamari so weird like fried fried cow boy yeah it. Is it like every party. I that's us. There's there's restaurants that i go to where i just i get the the columbine that come on and that's my meal okay so yeah that would definitely be pocketed in who doesn't puckett a good role. He let yeah for sure yeah. Totally you went i will i really like shrimp though takes like cocktail strength. Those looked really good. I can't imagine what that fuel. Ah so fun so in the previous you put the shrimp in our bra yeah ooh yeah. She ate those later to she's. She's just one of those kind of girls will not show okay <hes> so the next the next question has to do with the character chidi who you saw that was like her soulmate soulmate yeah and he was an ethics professor whenever he was alive and so he has like a really hard time like choosing things because he's always trying to figure out which one one is more ethical. It's doing bad stuff like when she told him that she wasn't supposed to be in the good place he like almost is because he does not like lying trying because it's not ethical so anyways <hes> his are ever been a time when you were unable to decide on something important one of the hardest things. I always have a hard time. Deciding is <hes> i staying at a job. Have you ever been there like your friends with everybody and the management also on the owners awesome but you don't get anywhere because there's no movement up or anything like that. I feel like threats. I have an issue with that because i want to be friends first in like an employer second stuff like that so one of the decisions. I've always had a hard time with is is it time to leave and i actually stay way past. Is that yeah. Oh yeah my husband's like that too. He he definitely is like that like he's been at his job for five years and then before that he worked at chick fillet for for four years just her that's no. He hated sorry for him. Yeah he really hated. It was hard like manual. Labor berg was ready to not do that anymore. <hes> they did pay him well better than you know some places without a college degree or fast food and they treated him pretty well but he just was ready to leave because he had to work really late. He worked the football games he so nice. He would dress up as carol sometimes so they they made him do everything because he's just. He's too nice to say now and that's how i am. I am really a hard time saying no. I i hate the look of disappointment you go in there and say <hes> i quit. I've betrayed somebody. I hate that feeling. Oh yeah that's that's really early bad. I don't like that feeling either all right so next question. My favorite character is named jason. You didn't really see him in that preview but he's really funny and he likes to eat really bad food and like sir implied out in his man cave so it what is your her favorite <hes> unhealthy snack like junk food. Does it have to be a snack because i consider myself chicken fried steak connoisseur. Oh okay that's that's true texan connoisseur to the max i every time i go eat somewhere first time. I have to have chicken fried steak and i absolutely judge them. I'm on it yeah. Do you think has the best chicken fried steak in waco. I haven't found a good one way career roadhouse. Okay no no because they're their gravy is texas. Roadhouse everywhere else has been super disappointing on their on their state. I had one that milo aw yesterday it was like with the biscuit and gravy was like chicken fried steak and cheese and i'm sorry milo. Have you ever listened to ooh the biscuit and the gravy was fantastic. It was like the best biscuits and gravy taste like my grandma's but the chicken fried steak wasn't good pounded thin enough so it was like kind of tough <hes> it would have been thinner i would. I think it would have been better so you're gonna you think i'm crazy so i'm from west from san angelo originally okay collagen brownwood so far away so the best chicken fried steak that will you you will ever eat is at a little hole in the wall restaurant mexican restaurant. They have chicken fried steak at mexican restaurants. No one believes me and i talked to people in waco echo in no one believes me that chicken fried steak is best at mexican restaurants but in san angelo they have a cheese based gravy that goes with their as big as your face chicken fried fried steak. That sounds pretty good. It's so good and if you ever are in san angelo look up franco's okay so good yeah my actually my husband's cousin lives there and he'll aunt used to live there for a long time. If i could i would eat a snack all the time so funny type back. I had my best friend from college which was from russia and i used to get her to eat. All texas foods like everything fried chicken fried steak everything like that and she'd be like texas. It has the best food like she lived in new york and london and she'd be like i have gained twenty pounds because food is so good. I'm on early yeah the hardy here yeah. It is the best food i'm but i'm bias. I love texas of taxes. Are i couldn't be anywhere else. There's no other place that rather than texas except except for this heat i could do without the he did have a hundred fourteen degrees. The other day wasn't very fun. Oh my gosh no no. I don't even think it got that hot and san angelo that day in the a desert. It felt like if felt like you're walking in a pressure cooker. It really did it was it was like i remember my ears. Were like closing. It just like the pressure was so hi. It's starting to weird. This is a total tangent and it's really well. It's okay but it's starting to affect. The buildings here like are the front door. We have in older house. The front door in our house is all stuck. Now because of the heat are <hes> are outside gate moved and we have like a little latch on it and now it's like really hard hard to pull it up. It's melting stuff is melting in texas. Yeah it's not good not good at all but the tomorrow it's supposed to rain and the the low is like sixty eight degrees. What yeah we hit it. We got a cold front today. It was one hundred and two well tomorrow. It's only supposed to be ninety five. I'm it's supposed to be nice tomorrow so let's just it's going to be humid like orlando but i'll take it fingers crossed <laughter> so yeah. I was in orlando for a week in june. My brother got married. There and i was like all this humidity is awful but i'd take it over one hundred and fourteen day it's dry and it feels like you walk because at leased they're like the wind would blow and it was like a cooler like ocean wind here. Nothing still still awful and when it does well. It's like hot fan audit. It's the hottest it's just bad. Don't ever come here in july or august okay so the next question. Dan is based on michael who is played by ted danson he so awesome on the show and i just think he's correct yeah. Okay glasses doesn't look. I wish i look. I hope i look like that. When i get older he looks so social white hair for a really long time has any not for that long had it colored for a while i think because of other shows he was doing because he was on cheers and then he's bit on curb your enthusiasm which is another one of my favorite. It shows a lot of times. I don't remember his hair bean wide until the last i don't know festival is an anytime i picture him into white guy but he's such a good looking guy with the white hair but anyways he's like the builder of the town. He's technically like the the leader of it and so if you could build the perfect town what would you dowden y cough cough. Waco does not that goes if i could build the perfect town of no definitely no fast food chains or like and i like small mom and pop businesses would definitely we have all of those ways to people to do that. They wanted to <hes> places for dogs. I love dogs. I've got to be able to yeah. We don't have very much here dog park yeah and i hate that dog park. Because one time i went and this guy was really mean to my dog. You have made me sav the three dogs. I gotta ask what you have <hes>. They're all mets really but i have like a little chihuahua mix. She's the oldest and the boss loss of the house and then i have a beagle ish mix <laughter>. I have a like a lab. She kind of looks like a she's got a pit bull head but she looks like a rhodesian ridgeback like that orange color miss. She's got like a blacks now. I don't know they're all just months. They're mixed from the shell. Turn their found my big dog her name's holly. She was found in a field like. Do you want this puppy like sure. I'll take her so. I have a dog named poet finn. If you couldn't tell tell him a star wars fan it's there <hes> but definitely suffer animals. I i love my dog. I love my cat so they've got to have two cats. I have have a house full of animals <unk> have any kids that's takashi to as a kid yeah. That's all those bills. Get really high and places to drive really fast cars. I think that could encompass about everything yeah small businesses spices for animals places to drive more places in waco like in dallas. They have a bar. They can take your dogs. We need something like that here. There's one restaurant that i i know that you can walk up and take your animal to what is the cajun craft. I've never been they're fantastic. I have to go check it out over off of eleventh st l. Okay i know where it is. He's so good and you can take your animals there all the time <hes> okay. I am definitely go. Check it out. Okay next question this one's based on tahani which was the one on the preview the girl that have like the british accent yes so if you you were a socialite and could hang out with any famous person on a day-to-day basis who would it be that is because she used to hang out in in her past life when she was alive. She hung out with like beyond say all the time. She's always like name. Dropping like konya west and kim kardashian apparently unleashing out with all the famous people so i asked this question it would be. I told you earlier that i'm a huge fan of supernatural. Yes so <unk> aleki would be up there and then robby. Robin williams was still alive. Absolutely robin williams be selling to mike hang out. Preferrably nineties. Robin will <music> because that's my mrs doubtfire. That's my favorite era of him. Who wanna hang out with jerry very paddle like he's seen in the new gilmore. Girls was my favorite scene of all of it really. It was really good. It was the best he did amazing job. I ah him and can't think of the guy's name right now the guy who plays dean from supernatural <hes> sam no that's right. That's what d pearl jam. Jerry patty had like he plays jason eccles. Yes that's the same. It's actually possible that one day maybe i could. They have a brewery in austin and don't they both live in austin as they both live and they're both texas guys yeah so maybe one day i'd get to hang out with them. <hes> who else will fare would be pretty cool to hang out with. I think just because he's so funny so funny. I'd wanna hang out with him. As george w bush that would be my favorite thing kaime one fictional fictional character or i would like to hang out with everybody from the office. I just wanna go hang out in the office. That's that's like my favorite show so excited if i could spend one day hanging out in with everybody that was in the office. Is your favorite character on the office. Oh i like pam. You're such a sweet guy because no guys does pam like pamela michael. Of course i'm michael the best. You just can't stop him. No he's the best in the seasons eight nine by the way without michael can't watch this dumb and i watched through the office and i might see here's one don't watch eight nine job once you have. I guess just watch at once. The finale is pretty good but eight nine are so bad so bad 'cause robert. California sucks gotten that far into it really bad. It's just not the same and then nine ryan and kelly leave. I didn't know that long yeah because she went did her own show. Mendy mendi project ryan ryan because he is the eternal hipster. Yeah it definitely is now. I believe your first time watching it. I know i'm in and then parks and rec is is next. I haven't watched so you liked the good place then because it's by like the creator of parks and rec in brooklyn i nine michael shurmur her created the good place and then he was he played mos- on the office and he's like producer the office but yeah yeah so all of those shows are kind of like i always say i like <hes>. Michael sure shows 'cause like all of his shows. I love all them so. I know i'm gonna like it if he had something to do with it because they're all quick witted and funny and the good places his most recent work right well. I am brooklyn nine number of glass which is coming back soon. Hopefully yes it's coming back to n._b._c. I'm really excited. I love andy sandberg lonely island like that's another one of my things but he'd be cool to hang out with. I think oh think he'd be. I don't know if i mean justin timberlake in one place that i think that'd be my dream all right so last question <hes> if you could so this is based on janet who's the one that just pops in whenever you say your name did the same a bad place yeah she. She's kind of like a computer a talking computer so if you could upgrade one thing about your life what would maybe i. My immediate was my car if i kinda car. Do you have a have a mazda three. Okay commute okay nice car like yeah. I want cool car eventually like yeah. I had a nissan altima for like forever since college and almost two years ago. I bought my first car so i don't know if they'll buy your own car and be a a new car. I bought a new car feels cool so this car that i have now is tech. It's not the first guy but i knew everybody yeah for that. I was the the disposable car. I never spent like more than a thousand dollars on a car. I just never wanted to it was it was <hes> and i've had public believe leapt twelve cars cheese and kind of a lot but when that many and we had leave i i had a jeep and i i loved that jeep but it broke down ahead. Levi and bring us now. We're done something new so bought a new car so we can have something reliable yeah so i think a car would be that and then what what kind of car would you like to get if you could have anything that it didn't matter the cost of it a big checked up jeep and then just ruined the environment virement. Hey they're coming out with. One is diesel. Ish that's better gas mileage but i want the like i want. The jeep that i can put a big tent on on the side of in like we can go those we can drive on the middle of nowhere we can camp and everything is pretty nice so like i want to be on what the outdoorsy outdoorsy dream truck is basically camping gear and and fishing gear and all that stuff that's. I think that's probably my dream car right now. <hes> course anything fast yeah awesome well. Thank you so much for being on.

They send something powerful had happened but neither of them knew that that conversation aired before millions of viewers on daytime. Tv with effectively. Be a first date that would lead to a marriage that has now lasted more than four decades and more recently reflecting on what makes a relationship last that long they got really curious and began to set up a double date with many celebrity couples that they know and others that they didn't people like viola davis and her husband actor. Julius tenant filmmaker rob reiner and his wife michelle award winning journalist. Bob woodward and elsa walsh ted danson and mary steenburgen neil patrick harris and his actor chef husband. David burqa john leguizamo and his wife and so many others and those hour long conversations. They went so deep so fast got so vulnerable open at at times really hysterically. Funny they turn the interviews into the bestselling book. What makes a marriage last and now those conversations and more are featured in their new original podcast series double date. We had so much fun talking about those early moments in their lives and relationships what was really going on each one of their heads and hearts as they sat there across from each other trying to figure out what is really happening here in the early days and how those thoughts and conversations than relationship has really evolved over time and what they learned when they sat down with so many people to uncover what it means of what it takes to be in relationship for really long time so excited to share this conversation with you.

So i think it would be fun to take a little bit of step back in time. I want to dive into your exploration of long term partnerships. What brought you together and also your deep dive asking a lot of different couples how they have endured but really curious about you individually a little bit first marlow that As a kid. Apparently your nickname was miss independence. Yeah tell me how that came about. Oh i guess. Because i was you know strong headed and wanted to do everything myself and So my dad. Nick me miss independence and i. It was half and half. You know like all right already you know. I just was very strong willed. Which actually he he fostered. He liked my sister brother. And i you know to have our own opinions and stuff but anyway my my nickname was vis independence. Which is interesting because your dad very strong personality in front of the cameras. Especially when you're a kid and it seems like also the in your parent's relationship. Your dad was the one who sort of they both decided to put his career forward. And your mom primarily became a mom and had started her career but then pretty much. Put it on. Hold right Well my dad. They met in detroit on a radio show and then they married. I was born in detroit. I wasn't there for more than a few months but because my father wanted to go with the bigger nightclubs were. He was a nightclub as well as radio personality. I was trying to make a living but nightclubs was his passion so he wanted to go to chicago. There were bigger clubs obviously than in detroit and so. My mom had to make a decision as to whether she wanted to marry my dad and go to chicago and wherever else he was going to go and give up her little fifteen minute radio show which she did and so they got married and they had me and then they went to chicago and my dad made his career there. And then the great abe last fogo the great agent who represented frank sinatra judy garland and danny kaye and all the big shots saw my dad and brought him to hollywood so that was kind of our trajectory. We were moving around a lot and so we really were ray. My sister brother. And i were really raise in beverly hills was your of what marriage meant. What a long term partnership men. What was when you looked at that. Did you have a sense for this. Is the the model for these the expectations. yeah. I thought it wasn't just a model. It was what marriage was. You know it was like to me. It was that was it a man. The husband had his work is what he wanted to do in life and the wife was the Sort of supplementary character in the play and so she raised the children which was important she tended to the home and she took care of everybody and for that she had a family she had security chitter. Nice husband a good marriage. But i knew early on. That marriage wasn't going to be for me. Because i thought that was marriage and if that was marriage i didn't really want to do it. I wanted to career. I wanted to travel. And i wanted to do what my father did. Which was do what i wanted to do. And i knew i mean not not that i knew but i realize i thought that well you know i'm not going to be able to marry a man who's going to stay home with the children and take care of the house so i will probably not ever marry kind of what my feeling was and i wasn't sad about it. I just didn't want it. I i didn't want i didn't wanna play that role and i had a lot of boyfriends and i went to london and play and for about a year and i was very independent. I was having a time of my life. I loved my work. And i wanted a wanted. My work and i always felt bad for my mom that she gave up her work. Because my mother was a good singer and she loved singing. But you know that that was her choice and so this was my choice. And if i i really do believe if i had not met feel i would not have married. It really wasn't anybody that i ever went out with. I didn't get married. I was forty two years old so from the time. I was twenty. Two when you really seriously dating. You don't really consider high school and early college. I think when. I was seriously dating a young woman. I was never looking for a husband and as i look back. There wasn't anybody that i would have wanted to spend my life with lovely people educated men who were good at their work and all the things. But it just wasn't for me. Yeah phil. I'm curious on on your side as a kid especially when your family unit and your upbringing. I know you end up in catholic school. Did you have a sensibility or a model for a long term relationship was like even in the youngest years. I never thought about that. I grew up believing that. If you said i do you did for the rest of your life so you know. Divorce was never never entered my consciousness. There may have been an aunt too was divorced in our family. I don't remember but i do. You remember crawling over somebody to get to communion at mass that was usually a relative who was divorced so it never occurred to me that this is gonna be my drama and holy cow. It was. I mean it not only was a divorce but i suddenly had four sons all to myself and i didn't know what to do with them i mean. Do you help them all with your with their homework. So i saw all these. And i was still on the air tap dancing every day for an hour. And you don't racing home to make sure that you know. They got home from school. Or whatever hunger. They may have had. I was i had to take care of but i had a very unusual early married life and which i suddenly found myself to be a single parent and i really. It was an eye opener for me. I realized what women had been doing all all these years right in front of me. I didn't realize how stressful that was. And how you know. It was a full time job. You mean here. They were live breathing. People looking at you. As if to say i'm hungry. Dad when are we gonna have supper so all of those things came down on my head at once. So that was. I grew up in a hurry. And that really. You know that sets up the time that You and marlow really connect you know. You're both in the world of entertainment. You're built very forward facing film tv on on a daily basis at that point marlow. Has this hit show and then involved in so many different projects and and also becoming a really strong and public feminist and voice for feminism and. Then there's this fateful day in nineteen seventy seven. Where marlo i from what i understand. I think you were promoting a book. When you land on phil show. I was promoting a movie called seeds. And phil had been divorced about four years. By that time. I was going on talk show. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with anybody. I was on a tour i was. I had been another other cities. That aren't remember. But i knew the next city was denver. Colorado that was my next city. So i did show and and i. His show was not in la at the time so it wasn't that familiar with him. I knew that he was great. Annuities show was a must stop and be a part of because he had an hour show and and And my press all said this guy is the biggest thing in the midwest you have to do is show so an hour was kinda daunting and a one hour one guest. I didn't think i was that interesting at nine. Am but anyway. I was in the green room waiting to start and he came in and was putting on his jacket and when he walked in the room i it really was a quite a chemical reaction. I had the big beautiful blue eyes and his shock of white hair putting on this navy blue jacket and oh he looked like a choirboy and she was a. I think you have to be catholic to understand but she was to me immediately. An impure thought so we had an instant reaction and it's interesting jonathan because we interviewed so many couples for our book and then for our podcast book is called what makes marriage lasted. Podcast is called double date and many people had that moment where they met each other and even saw each other billy crystal saw janice when he was eighteen years old and he's married to janice for i think it's fifty years. He saw her on the beach. She was saw a ball with a friend and he saw this girl in a pink bikini walk by and he said was i. I'm gonna marry her. I mean these days people. It'll you you have that reaction. It's just it's amazing. How many of our yes. Yeah malcolm glad well. Road wrote the book blink in which he makes the point that first impressions are for many of us. Everything and that was the case in a lot of the couples that we featured on in our book. Yeah that that inciting incident that moment fascinates me as well. I'm curious you know people can go back and actually watched that clip. Watch the original conversation which you know extensively as an interview but really. It's obvious as a viewer that there's something else going on there at the same time and this sounds like both of us sense that too when you wrap that episode you know marlowe you've gotta move on to denver as you share your on this tour. You're going city to city. What are you both thinking after alec. That was interesting. That was nice or something that needs to be followed up here. I was a bit shaken. Maya because i was leaving. And i i had this feeling about this man that i would never see him again. He lived in chicago. I lived in los angeles was on my way to denver was one nightstop and i. I just had this very strong feeling about him. I aside from the physical of how. How good looking. I thought it was and whatever else was going on chemically inside of me. you know. there's something about talent that is very it's an aphrodisiac. You know when somebody does something. Well i mean if you're a carpenter or a actor whatever whatever you are and you do it well. It's very alluring. And he was so good in at the show. I mean i as. I say i hadn't seen this show and the way he orchestrated the whole thing. It's such confidence. He was interviewing me with a lot of confidence and savoir-faire then he jumped off the stage and ran into the audience and talk to them and then he took a call from a caller. I mean he just was like a conductor of an orchestra. Not a qualm about anything. Any comeback to go back to them huge amount of confidence. Confidence is sexy. So i already was physically attracted to him and then his his talent was very alluring and when the show was over it was like it was hard because here was this one hour of intense focus on him and his intense focus on me and then it was. We'll go by. And i said whoever the woman your life is very lucky and he said you're just fascinating and then i left and i you know i felt ill. I'm never going to see him again. I felt that. And i said do there was a one of producers. Was walking out to my car. Which is always you know. Show you how to get going. I said wow. He is really an attractive man and she said yeah and and he's available. I said really. She said yeah. He's divorced and he has four kids and i said oh so i had that piece of information so at least he wasn't married and then and then i got in my car and left town and the next morning i found a note after you called me. Yeah that was my call back from written. And my son kevin's hand marlo. Thomas called called me the night before. But i was out as you said gallivanting in chicago so when you when you call the night before why what what was what did you want to happen. Well you know i'd already. I'd already miss your sure as bad thought. And so i certainly had interest in her and i didn't want to be you know i didn't want to be pushy about that. Was not a you had a little speech. You said ready to say what a good guests. I was good. Yeah and and she was. She was a great gas because not only was sheer an entertainment star and good looking but she was up to date on important issues. Feminism most certainly and my audience. You know this is nineteen ninety seven you know. My audience was largely female daytime audience and she was perfect as a guest. And that's pretty important if it's one guest for the whole hour right so i used to say back. In those days. I used to say she was a hangover. Guess so if i was hung over you know all i had to do as clear my throat and she carried along but you call me and you said look when i come out to. La time. i'd like to take you to lunch. Learn shy dinner sounded a little leering. So i thought as to miser. Oh my god it's gonna take forever can wait three comes to la. Then we'll have lunch and he lives in chicago so i said to him. Well why don't you come and visit me in denver. I'm denver be too far for denver far chicago. Chicago's oh no. Is that far at all so on a plane any came to have dinner with me and and it sort of was a continuation of the hour. We spent on the air. We we talked a mile. A minute had a lot in common. We were both raised by by catholic parents. My dad was from toledo. he's from cleveland. We're very much alike in our politics very much alike and we just we just hit it off. That moment began our three year relationship. Which was mostly long distance and commuter kind of relationship and then we married three years later. But even then. I didn't really want to get married. I was what you say crazy about him. But i wasn't admitting that i was in love but i was. I really wanted to be with him and we did everything we could. I mean he had these four boys that live with his a wonderful daughter that lives with his ex wife and so he was constantly trying to see the daughter being with his boys. Coming to la. Maybe bring a couple of the boys with him. That were too young to say home. I mean it was it was it was rough going but we did. It went back and forth with chicago to l. ayla every weekend i was raising four sons. The issue scared me really. I wasn't sure what to do with them. And i was. I'm not proud of the fact. That i was i was kind of a crazed parents. You know and one of those sons said to marlow on one occasion when she was at our home. Michael yeah michael said. I like it when you're here. We were a little happier. Yeah i mean. Let's face it to raise for boys and then be on your own tremendous amount of pressure and i know. Also you know you're doing this low as you said largely long distance and finding ways to navigate being together which can be incredibly hard for a lot of people at at some point in that that window and you also kind of hit them beaumont where you thought it was just too much. It was too hard. There's too much distance between us and we need to break up and you did. But that didn't last. We broke up about three months. We were we have been i think sacramento or somewhere filled with had a remote of his show. I think it was in sacramento and And i had gone there to join him because it was a quick jump from la and after that weekend we both said you know what this is just is just too hard. I'm mean i was very active. Then i produced about twelve movies for television. And i was producing them in starring in the i was really committed and he of course was very committed to a daily show and his children and he said look. I gotta get my boys. I gotta get them raised up. I've gotta get some through high school you know. I can't be leaving them all the time. I'm very guilty about that. And you know. I think you're the greatest and everything but you know it just doesn't and i said the same thing i mean. We both knew that it didn't work. And so i went back to my home in beverly hills and he went back to chicago and so we we did not speak for three months and we made it a real break and i was miserable and i found out later so was he. He lent sort of dating girls known before but it was no denying it that there was no replacement for him and after about three months we decided we had to find a way to put our lives together. So who who made that first move. Well i probably did you know very well. You did live like called you. Where were you at the time you in bed. It was three o'clock in the morning. Oh you ever better vail or somewhere ski with the boys. Remember what you said. I know you do because you said it before. I never thought. I'd miss somebody as much as i miss you. He said i never thought anyone would. Be this irreplaceable. I probably did. Then thank you for remembering so that prompts you to both kind of realize okay so this has to happen. We have to figure it out But what are you said. I never thought anyone could be this replaceable. What you know about phil is he really says what he means and he doesn't he doesn't Flourish i mean. I'm sure there were all kinds of words around that he could have said. But i picked up the phone and said hello and he said he didn't say hello after not hearing him for three months firmness. I never thought anyone would be this irreplaceable. It hit my heart. Because it's exactly what i was feeling and i started to cry on the phone and he started to cry and then he said i'm i'm skiing with the boys and in the next couple of weeks when i can get away. I'd like to come visit you. And so then he did and then and then we talked it out and the and the thing on his mind most. I've got to get through high school. I've got to get everyone of them. Graduated from high school and that again was very appealing is responsible. Man was responsible to his children. Who's responsible. He was in love with me but he was responsible. And so we kind of mapped out. Our life know that i would move to new york and we'd get an apartment and he wouldn't be able to move for about four years and then he would move his whole show and the kids will be in college then and that's what he did. He moved his show. Yeah it was a whole was really a revolution in many ways First of all i. I really didn't plan to be in new york. But the show was growing and nbc made the invitation and thirty rock was a seductive address for me especially at that time and so off we went. Yeah well it certainly is certainly made the relationship easier. Well it made us a lot. We didn't have a long distance feature. I mean we got to really the pilots and the flight attendants got to call us by our first name chicago new york chicago new york every weekend every weekend it was it was. We were on an airplane a lot. Both of us and we we picked new york. Because i said to fill. I can't really work in chicago. I can continue my career in both new york and la. You said well. I can work in new york and dc. He said i can't work in la. I'm not interested in doing a show about entertainment and he would have some people as entertainers like me. But that wasn't the base of the base of his show was really politics and the the the social fabric of the country. And ralph nader on all the time. Jesse jackson gloria steinem. Those were really the the basis of his show And senators and presidents and and you know the head of general motors. They really were not living in. La wasn't the place for him. And so he said. I can live in new york or dc mice. That i can live in new york or la so there was new york was the city. So that's what we moved to lie. Project is supported by active skin repair.

Good life so you end up in new york together Eventually get married and start building a life But the occasion of your marriage is also interesting especially for marla because you had been very vocal outspoken voice of feminism for many years and still are but there were certain assumptions. I think about the fact that you had identified for a long time as a as an adult single woman without a a need to have to get married when you ashley got married. It seems like there were certain people who were very happy for you and then there are others who felt to a certain sense betrayed. Yes i mean the people that i knew were very happy for me. Gloria steinem and all my best friends that were feminists. Were very happy for me but there were women that i didn't know in the country who wrote to me and say how could you be married. I mean i've always been able to say to my mother. Moral thomas isn't crazy and she's not married so i had somehow become a symbol for other women who didn't wanna mary that it was okay not to be married. Because i wasn't a weirdo. And i wasn't. I dunno. whatever. I didn't have a you know a unicorn on my head so i was a normal person and the passengers say i'm apply all right. We are playing on the plane to our honeymoon in greece. And we've been very quiet. Nobody knew that we were getting married. We got married in my parents. Living room was just thirty. Five people my family and fills family. That was all so the next morning. We're on our way to greece. And phil had gone to the bathroom and i was sitting there with my engagement ring in my wedding ring in all and this woman from across. The aisle said to me. Are you marlo. Thomas and i said yes and she said are you married and i said yes thinking. I'm the blushing bride. The first person. That's going to know that i married outside of my family and she said well. How could you get married. I am so disappointed. And i was struck by that. You know i thought. Oh my god what have i done. I've little these people down and fill came back from the bathroom. And i was upset and he said i told them. What would this woman said. He said what woman she and anyway. I got over it but it was. It was striking that that a lot of male said that to me. And a lotta an that woman on the airplane. It was just a. I was shocking. I never knew that. I never knew that. Was what what. I was standing for out there. I wasn't meaning to stand for anything. And when you've got finally got married and you told your mother that you're about to get married and that you were going to marry a man with four sons. She said oh. What a joke on you. Yeah that was pretty funny. It seems like the joke was on everyone. Because you've now been together for over forty years in marriage and you decided recently to write a book. But i'm curious which really explored which which sat where you sat down with a forty different couples who had been together for a very long time and really serve said. Wha- what's going on here. What was the reason. What was the inciting incident for. You undertaking that project. Well for years people had asked us to talk about our marriage. We never wanted to. We really did feel that. It was kept strong by its privacy and so we didn't talk about it and and they would ask us. You know what's the secret sauce. what do you do. that's different and we couldn't think of anything we did. That was any different lead. Certainly made a lot of life accommodations for each other. I moved to new york. He moved to new york. We did everything we could be together but other than that you know. We loved each other. We liked each other. We had a good time together. Couldn't really put my finger on anything. And so when we were about to turn away on our thirty ninth anniversary. We heard about a couple right that we're getting a divorce. Yeah you're that was a blow thirty nine years and you get divorced and we said wow. How does that happen. David married like twenty five years. We were married thirty nine and was around our thirty nine anniversary and we said how does that happen. When are you safe. If you're going to get a divorce after twenty six twenty seven years so we started talking about that. What what did they do wrong. What did we do right. And how how do people stay together. We didn't know especially people who are one of them is not backing down but a both of them are very involved in the marriage and so we decided to talk to a lot of people that have been married a long time because you can't learn from seven married five years but you got to you know once you've been married twenty years you've got something you can say something that you've learned and so that's what we decided to do for people around the table and you know we thought maybe the interviews would go fifteen minutes now. We did not. I figured they'd be about an hour but they were like three hours. We'll the team. And finally i would say i'm sorry but we really have legal but it was you know when we opened up. They opened up. It was easier for them to talk with us about personal issues. And i think it made the interviews more interesting well. I don't think they would have ever been successful if we hadn't in fact when we decided to do it was my idea and phil wasn't all that forward. Because he said to me. I don't wanna talk about our marriage. We've always been private about this. I don't want to talk about it. And i said to him. I mean you learn after forty years that you're not gonna have your mate disseminator i want to do so i said you don't have to. I'll talk about what i want to talk about. They'll talk and you'll be there to ask questions and so forth but as we got started it was so fun and it was so much like a double date that you know if billy crystal talked about You know seeing his wife on the beach and then till talked about meeting me on the show and then somebody else talked about being jealous. Marcus wailers kelly. Ripa's has been talked about his jealousy. Then phil talked about his jealousy and little by little. He opened up as they opened up and they opened up. As we opened up. Bennett became just like you would on a double date. You know one can't do all the talking. Everybody talks and when everybody starts talking they start revealing things. And it's it's fun you know when we started out. We said this can't be a how to book 'cause a how to book would be like a pamphlet. It's really a what book. What did you do when this happened. What what did curious sedgwick and kevin bacon do when they lost all their money to a to a birdie made off know what what did jesse jackson jackie jackson do when he had a baby out of wedlock in. What did chris. guests do. And jamie lee curtis. He found out. Jamie lee curtis had an addiction problem. I mean what did each and then how do they get back. And what did the solid burgers do when her phone at home rang and the voice on the other end said. Your husband just landed his plane in the hudson river. I mean of course. The world fell on their house. And how do they adjust to that. So we're all of the couples had and it was. It was fun to talk to like. Salaam burger and john mcenroe and patty smyth. So we're in. Jimmy carter and roslyn carter all kinds of people from all walks of life and when we got off the road fill said the thing he noticed was what oh. Both people wanted the marriage that you can't have one person kind of dragging the other along in the relationship. Yeah it really does take. It seems fundamental. Now that i think a parrot both partners have to want the marriage equally. 'cause i know i'm sure you've seen it. Jonathan as we have in many marriages one person that sort of doing all the accommodating putting it all together making life interesting inviting people over you know trying to you know making up being the one that makes up. All the time of that. Those marriages don't work because the other person just feels the person that's doing all the giving and the fixing becomes exhausted and has no nourishment both people have to be nourished. That's what nourishes the marriage and we figure that out along the way the one person can't be the one that always says i'm sorrier or says. Let's try to fix this. That that can't be both people have to to make accommodations for that. The other person is not you and they're going to have different desires and different needs and each person has to accommodate. That and i think accommodation was one of the words that we came off the road with and thought and i had never thought of that word before that it really is. One of the secrets to a happy marriage is a happy accommodation that you say no what. This is what he needs. This is what he wants. This is which who she is. This is what she has to do. If you don't have that kind of thing you know. I remember one time. I was very very busy and running around sort of mad cap. And friend of my. This friend told me a male friend who was our friend of both of us said to feel. Oh my god. Doesn't that drive you crazy that she's running around like dead and and phil said to this. Man don't rain on her for a and that's so touchy. Do you remember that. Check senators and so touched me. That phil had said that to him without me and earshot said don't rain on her parade. So that's very loving and very caring. He wants me to have what i want and i want him to have what he wants. And that's what you do as a parent but spouses don't often do that for each other. I mean a mom and dad will do anything to give their children everything. They want to get what they want. The best education is this a car when they all the stuff that you possibly can do for your children but we don't sometimes apply that to our spouse and if we did a little more of that for our spouse even. I know from women that. I've met even to the point where the husband realizes that the wife really wants to go back to school and they need to find money in the budget for the wife to go back to school and often when the money is allotted. It's for the children to go to school. And this and that but sometimes the wife wants to go back to school and to find a way to make that possible for her is a very big act of love and accommodation. And i've known a lot of women who have been in that position and marriage counseling. Yes that's a real act of love you know when one partner feels a little bit threatened about whatever reason and suggests marriage counseling that that really says i love you and i'd like this to last. That was a that. Revelation happened draft bryan cranston and his wife. Robin dearden and and neil patrick. Harris and david burqa several couples Do marriage counselling and it says. It's it's really helped them. Bryan cranston caused a tune-up. We need a tune-up with the marriage counselor. Yeah i mean what's interesting is also marlow what you just described as wanting for your partner. What so often apparent is seen as wanting for their children and being there to help figure out how both people can be fully expressed can be confident can be alive and be themselves in the relationship. I think that's so powerful. What's interesting to me is that is the reimagining of marriage from what you saw the model to be growing up. This was sort of redefining it as no. This is the way that i can understand being in this type of relationship but reimagining as something that is more more equal more more generous rule near room ear. The definition that i grew up with was it was a very tight place. And it didn't have any you know windows open. When we were married and still commuting. I had an aunt who said to me. That's not a marriage. And i thought to myself this is why never married. Because there's such a tight definition of marriages. In other words marriage people live in the same city. If you're living in two different cities and you commuting back and forth in her mind that was not a marriage and that was helpful to me to realize. That's what we did. We define marriage for ourselves. And that's what everybody has to do. When i was a student at the university of notre dame in the fifties. We had a marriage counseling session all males so we sat in the audience and young married couple on the stage served as the advisers and the man said the secret to a happy marriage is find a good wife that was that was marriage. Counselor at notre dame in the fifties. There's you know it's it's all our responsibility to find a good wife and of course we all lean forward and seventeen or eighteen and accepted this. This this brilliant council is important because it was coming from a married couple. Good why okay. Let me get out and find a good one. I mean it. it's interesting also in the context of the book. And now the podcast where you're sharing some of these conversations because you it sounds like you very deliberately sought out a really diverse array of people to sit down with so having sat down with so many people now Across different ages different cultures different ethnicities different sexualities and different genders. You've been able to see so many different patterns and so many different repeated experiences. And i'm curious about those common patterns that you saw across everyone. One of the big curiosities is what you saw around Vulnerability and the role of vulnerability in long term relationships. Well i was surprised. By the the male vulnerability you know a few minutes ago. Ran phil was describing the phone call to me. It's so vulnerable for him to say. I never thought anybody would be. This replaceable was a very vulnerable thing to say. I mean he was saying i'm lost without you. It's hard for you to say it because it's so personal. And i think that for men the they're just not i mean that's what i did free to be me. A women are taught to express their feelings. Men are not men are taught not to express their feelings only sissies cry and all that so the the thing is is that a couple of the men. Many of the men were very vulnerable as vulnerable as phil was to say that to me on the phone. Ted danson his on his third marriage to mary. Steenburgen who's on her second and they have a wonderful marriage or a fabulous couple. They've been married thirty years now. And i said to him how. How did you have the optimism to get married a third time. I mean i could barely get married once. And he said i knew i had to stop the lying. I said what were you lying about. He said well. I was unfaithful at one thing. He said but i was lying about who i was. I had this image of myself as a man and a man doesn't feel bad about anything. A man does he gets rejected. Be bounces right back. A man doesn't doesn't cry. a man doesn't have a bad day and so forth. He said i would come through the door at night. Just having had a horrible day. Where i felt so much pain but i wouldn't admit it so i just come in like everything was great. He said so. The women that i was with never knew the hell i was. They never saw the real me. They only saw this version of me. That i wanted to show them. He said when. I met mary mary steve bridge and his wife. He said i realized that she didn't play that dance. She was really looking at me and expecting more to the realness. The authentic ted. And that's what made them fall in love and why they've been together thirty years. That was such an interesting thing for him to say. And i think a lot of men do that. They don't want to show how much they hurt. How how much they get battered around women do with a terrible day. You know we have no trouble with that Even strong women like me. We don't we don't see that as a weakness. We see that has been telling the truth. Men see that as as a weakness and that keeps them from being good marriage partners. And then a bob woodward of all people really showed his vulnerability his his mother left when he was twelve is mother ran off with his father's best friend so at twelve years old he realized that low. We're in this alone. And then they got married and he went into the navy or the marines. I don't remember which while he was in the marines whatever. His wife left him and then he went on. I'm alone and then his second marriage also broke up after they had a child and she left and so he was firmly in the belief that we're all alone in this world and then he married is wonderful. woman elsa walsh. They've been married over thirty years. Who what what he wanted in life and and whether he could give to her when she gave to him you know he found a way to have a good relationship but up until that he had been really scarred. You know by all these women leaving him his mother and his two wives and was very vulnerable. Man i i just fell in love with him bob woodward because you think about what is this guy like mike wallis who goes after. I had an awakening to the consequences of jealousy. And i was fascinated with the marcus willow story who called his wife from boston. She was in new york and he said what are you doing. And she said well. I'm cleaning the apartment. And i'm cleaning the bathroom. And he thought that answer was kind enough fishy so literally. He got on an airplane without telling her flew home got to the apartment went up to their floor and ran past her. Who shoo standing at the door looking for the tall dark stranger behind the drapery and it was a reminder of how that feature which i think a lot of people supp- men especially suffer from a marriage is draining. It can wear you out. I had jealousy when marlo made a movie with kris kristofferson and they had a love seeing well. I mean that love scene i thought lasted like maybe an hour and a half as for a minute. Yeah so you know. I i was jealous and i you know it is. I was jealous of a more things in that he was jealous about a lot of i was i mean. Here's herself the actress. Who was a bad thought. When i first met her so i can only imagine how she was met by other men and she was meeting a lot of men in her work. So this was. This was something i to get over. It took a while. But i recall how draining it was. Jealousy really saps here strength and if you can just get candidate where you're not suspicious all the time it makes life a lot better and better and it's very hard on the person whom the jealousy is directed because jealousy is not about what you're doing it's about what the man or the woman who's jealous has got going inside of them. It's there s phil said. Confidence is her lack of confidence at the own. Or it's their own suspicious. Nature or paranoia in has nothing to do with what you're doing and that's that's hard on a person because you think to yourself what am i doing. Am i doing something wrong. That i do but i said it's it's difficult and i was very glad when it it wasn't a long time it will probably was somewhere in the middle of our marriage together that you kinda dropped that and you told me what a relief it was that you felt. The trusted didn't have to feel that. And i really. I felt i had graduated to some different level of maturity. But it did make for me. It made life so much easier if you can get past that.

I seem to see come up a lot with different couples who you sat down with and also as i sit here with both of you. I'm noticing in a very strong way. Is that they see each other use each other. I can see visually that those listening can just hear this. But what i can see. Is you keep looking at each other. You keep noticing each other. We had A little while back a couple named julian. John godman on the show. They have been researching love and marriage for decades together One is a clinician and one is an academic and they run something that's commonly known as the love lab and they've done a lot of research and one of the things that they found the they were actually able to predict with ninety five percent accuracy whether or marriage would survive six years out and when they really looked at well what were they looking at. They notice that people were making bids for each other's attention and affection all day long and when people turned towards those bids it was really good for the relationship when people didn't notice them or even turned against them. It was terrible and what they found. Was that what they called. The masters of these long term relationships they noticed the bids and they turn towards them. Eighty six percent of the time whereas the what they call the disaster relationships most of them ended they only turn towards the bids thirty three percent of the time and it seems like i'm married. I'm dated my wife and and we've been together for close to thirty years. We're married twenty four and looking at both of you. I'm watching you notice each other. It's literally you're you're looking at me but you're you keep looking at each other. You keep noticing the different things the quirks the things and i'm wondering if that resonates with you as something critical. I don't know that. I noticed that i don't. I don't have a conscious a conscious feeling about that. But i as you now that you express it. I guess face contact. I contact is revealing a feature of anybody's behavior in terms of the couples that we interviewed. I don't remember noticing that whether they did or they didn't. I was so nervous about hoping that the interview would be going well and after over an hour when we would finally say thank you goodbye three hours. Yeah really were. They were but they were fun. I mean i. There was a couple of them that i didn't even want to be over. I really enjoyed it in a couple of people. We stayed over and had a meal with them and had a glass of wine. I mean it was a it was fun. We made new friends. It was an interesting in that way. So as we sit here today You're both working on the second project. Which is podcast called double date which is really the extension. Do certain extent of this book. And where you're sharing the audio of a lot of these conversations. I'm wondering as you revisit. These conversations and you sit down and listen to them and then you put them out into the world how you're experiencing Whether you have it's reminded you of anything or there are things that you actually didn't notice or see the first time through that you're sort of revisiting. I think i just was very touched by them that they would give so much of themselves. You said that at one point that you were surprised. I noticed how much they opened up. If we offered something about us personal that seemed to open the door for. I tell you what having interviewed one on one on my television show for almost thirty years. Partnering for an interview really has its advantages. I think it means that the subject especially if there's two of them to onto is more likely to engage in a conversation with you. That's going to have often a lot of personal information that we didn't beat him over the head to expose of themselves. They offered it and often with enthusiasm a real discovery for i think both of us it was fun. And you know after we've been interviewed by people for the press television interviews and they've all said to us especially the print people they said i i never would have gotten those stories out of people in the amazing thing is is that you were able to get them to tell really personal things and we said well. I think it's because we didn't really go in there as reporters we went in. There was another couple so it was two couples hanging out together having a glass of wine or a cup of tea and some nauseous that everybody put out because when we went to their homes they put out things for us. It was a double date. It was two couples. That's if we if we express personal stories about ourselves they would do the same right to mazing how the door seem to blow open. That's different than a reporter. Reporter is such a one sided conversation. They ask questions you answer you know we. We often ask them. How do you fight. Because it's not. It's not just how you fight is how do you come back from one and a lot of people. Can you know there are people in this world who go days without speaking to each other. I mean that is so beyond anything i could do. I mean i. I cannot speak maybe for an hour but i have to get back to it. You know that there are people who do that and james carville when you find yourself arguing. He said she said. I didn't say i didn't mean cycle a circular. Yeah around around. Somebody should say all. Let's kick this can down the road and it sounded so superficial at the time but now long after the interview during one of our arguments. Who did i say i said. Oh let's kick this can down the road and of course we both started laughing and thought this is great it something to stop it. Didn't you say no. You said you put and as of null importance and will you won't remember two days from now but it's so it's such an interesting thing to have some codes to stop. Stop any of of that sort of bickering thing. One of our said. If you're if you're having an argument the best way to get over it is you should sleep toshi deter. She we thought about that for a while too. And that is you that my irish guy here. I love the The the simple answers there Another yiddish word so There's a word in yiddish which is pronounced notice and it translates roughly to the joy that you feel or somebody that you love so heartedly that you experience there success as your own and i think that's a lot of what you've been talking about right and that's also called kelly right. Yeah yeah over an often. We talk about it in the context of children to have that feeling for a partner in a life partner i think right is a really beautiful thing is a very joyful thing it feeds you. It feeds each person. If i feel it for him that feeds me and it feeds him to know that. I'm feeling that so both people get nourish from it. I really think that that marriage and love like a plant. They need to be watered. You can't just say. I do and then walk away and figure out what you're gonna do with your life. It needs to be water all the time with love and attention and affection and observation and even interrogation. How are you feeling. What are you feeling. How can i help you. All of that is going on all the time. Maybe not in those exact words but the attention at the other person really you know. Sometimes i'll say feel if you're not feeling well or and i'll say how were you feeling. He'll say fine. And i'll say there's no information fine i mean. Are you feeling better feeling worse if you if that and so is is engaging in it if somebody wants to know how you feel you know figure out how you do. Views to the other person knows what what state and. That's difficult for especially an irishman. When i would complain you know my complaints to my parents. My mother especially we're never validated. If i said i'm tired my mother would say we're all tired. You know you weren't you weren't there was no respect given to the complaint share feelings. Yeah to your feelings. We're all tired okay. It really is another way to say. Shut up it doesn't encourage who cares. It doesn't encourage sharing feelings. So i feel like this is also a good place for us to come full circle in our conversation. I'm going to ask you both final question. We're sitting here in this container in. The name of the show is a good life project. If i offer up the phrase to live a good life for each of you what comes up to live a good life. Well i i think a good life has to purpose in it so that you have something that you work toward that you dream about it you feel fulfilled about to me. That's part of a good life and to share it with someone to have someone that you know you know has your back. I also also felt that marriage and relationships are a cushion of life so a good life needs a cushion. You need to know that if everything is bad or sad or falling apart or you've lost someone you love or all of the things that can happen in life. That are disappointing and hard. You have a cushion. You have somebody there who's gonna you know support you through that give you a soft warm space. The shoulder a hand and arm all of the things because it's a hard world it's a a world it's changing all the time in feels toward people how it feels towards certain kinds of people. It really needs something constant. I think a good life has to have constancy in that. You can count on. I wrote him autobiography about one hundred years ago and that began the first chapter by saying one. My children pleased me. I didn't tell them. That's an old catholic irish. I guess axiom. And i realize now how wrong that is to tell your children that you're pleased when they please. You is a buoyant effort for them. They feel enlarged by they suddenly become in their innermost selves. More confident in nourish. And what a what a gift that is for them. Well for for my kids. It's a little late but you know somewhere along the way somebody said too soon. All too late smart. So that's how you answer the good life. Yeah yeah. let me. Let me rephrase that. Actually when you think about your life and when you think about what makes it truly good what do you think about. We'll have a professional answer to that. But i'm afraid about like well you know. He's very hard. We have to go to the person. Well it's not about professional and not about children. What makes you. We're all ski hill. Oh i feel so free and going over the mobile moguls and finally get to do it for you jonathan. He refuses. that's all right. You did very well. You did the best you. Maybe they can just take that view out. I've been known the wind up on editing room for more than once you fine. I think the exchange between you while while you were answering that question we actually had the answer in what happened between both of you. The energy of love and support that came out goes a long way to answering the question. Thank you thank you both. Thanks jonathan so before you leave if you love this episode safe. Bet you'll also love the conversation that we had with julie and john godman who were the founders of the legendary love lab and their deep dive into what love and what long term relationships and marriages really are all about. You'll find a link to julian. John's episode in the show notes. Even if you don't listen now be sure to click and download. So it's easy to play when you're on the go and of course if you haven't already done so be sure to follow good life project in your favourite listening absolute you'll never miss an episode and then share the good life project love with friends because when ideas become conversations that lead to action. That's when real change takes hold see you next time

Like you're looking back, you like, where did the time go? So how? How's the week? Been good week this week for less eventful as last week. But yeah. How about you? What do you? What would you have going on? This week was cool, but before we get into that, I'm going to need time tonight for your beer. I have for mission brewery and Santa is a from mission brewery and San Diego. I have shipped a shipwrecked double IPA nine and a quarter AB in thirty. Can you see this in. Can. So the reason why I want to jump into the beer so quickly, I'm gonna need time to suck this one down. So you make it a rule that you have to be finished by the end of the show, I'll be sip wrecked. Apparently nineteen thirteen. I don't know how that works with prohibition and everything. And then maybe they put it on hiatus and then came back, but it's pretty much it's it's thirty two ounces. It's a court, I guess. Yeah, thirty two, fluid ounces. I mean, I'm, I don't know. I don't know how many feel at the end of this. Probably shipwrecked. Like I said. Yeah, it's a double APA. It says here style of beer, man, that's so small cabin read it. You're asleep born on the foggy shores of other Juna Perreault Sears. I founding mission. I don't know to hell I'm reading and you haven't even had anything to drink tonight. So I'm gonna crack this open port. I'm going to be drinking it out of a dogfish head like, well, I wouldn't call it a tulip glass, but it's a dogfish head like IP glass. Cool. And I'm sure people have heard of dogfish head. I don't know if anybody's sort of mission brewery, but I saw it in the store and awesome. I have heard of it. Let's see. Hang us here. Okay. I'm in. I'm in for the long haul. Now it's open when you drink tonight. So tonight I went with scaling it back a little bit. I, I was I had so many of these twenty twos. I went with just a pint this week going with strand brewing company. It's Los Angeles brewing company out of Torrance. Cool. Yeah. And we actually re like not recently, like over a year ago, we ran into the one of the owners of strand berry and gave me his business card with like free tasting on the back for party of four. So next time you're down in town, we should try to figure out how to get down to strand. Oh, definitely. We'll go and we'll bring back some beers and stuff, and then we'll do like a little review or whatever. Exactly. So I went into my Burbank whole foods today, and I was like, I walked up because I wanted to get. I wanted to drink some Lord Hobo hair more load on Lord Hobo. I love that Lord Hobart, and I was like, give me a little sample in Amy sample. I was drinking. Then I said, can I buy growlers their way as growlers yet? And they don't do any growlers, but I suggested that they should do like filling growlers and stuff because it would be awesome. It'd be an awesome business. They didn't do that. So I just got this little little pint for it's called twenty four th street, pale our way from grain to grass. That's not nice. And how big is that bodily said? It's just a pint. Okay. Yeah. And I'm drinking out of a pint glass from some swag. We got one year from seven, eight, nine one of our production companies. Sweet. Yeah. So the shipwrecked IP WPA it is bitter like in in the in the. Yeah, in in the IB an IP a sense, it's bitter. It's not one of those florally fruity ones. It's it's more like the Grasser like piney almost like a pine cone chewing on a pine cone. I love that like I was saying that that figure mountain has some one of the best pine as yeah, it's not one of those. Like really citrusy type of hop. It's more like the pine sap, like sap? Yeah, like you're chewing on Barker something that good, you know, I mean. Well, I don't really bark out. It would taste like this and it's really good. Yeah. So yeah, you taste it hits you and it has like that bitter right away. And then all of a sudden you taste like that foresty like, I'm camping. I love it labor. Yeah. So how's yours? Taste? Mine tastes good. It minds really clean crisp. It's a good rest from these double IP as like the IP is I've been drinking Ida. I had another. I had the last of the emperor that was over at Frank's last night. And what I opened Scott from next door was like, oh my God. What are you doing like he caught it from across the dining room. It was fun. Didn't I tell him like it's just it's so different, but after doing all these Lord hobos and all that other stuff, this is just a nice creek clean crisp mellow. It's mellow mellow, I, it's not even a mellow. It's just a pale, so it has that, but it's not hitting over the head. So this is probably like the lightest beer that I can enjoy. Right? And I did do one thing this week. I just actually literally just came from the gym. Okay. I was with Ryan over at rise, fitness and performance. And I started a six week program and you got one a six to eight week training program here a real tough one, which is perfect for me. I'm gonna walk out of here a lean mean fighting machines. I was like, oh, no, can I drink beer? And he said, no, you can't drink beer. And I was like, well, how about once a night? Just on Friday nights this for the podcast, he's like, all right, but make sure it's a good beer and you run extra. So it's kind of like John candy in stripes he needed to lose weight. So he found this like eight week, weight loss program. Oh God. I haven't put up put that much back on, but I have put a couple of pounds back on, so I want to kick it. Kick it out well, while I still can go. Yes. So this week I ride my bike every day to work and stuff, you know, which is no secret to the to the regular listener, some walking around campus, it's lunchtime, or, you know, I'm like between classes and teachers are between classes and we're walking around and people are seeing me and they're like, you the other morning, someone else's. I was driving in eyesight. You ride in the work the other morning and pretty much it's my son, Mikey, who's like famous now of among the teachers. Because as we go to work, we're flying down the hill and he's got his Batman, Cape lake, just out there lying behind us and everybody just loves his Cape. So like he wears a Cape, doesn't matter what it's not wearing, like, you know, the Batman outfit. Yeah, wearing a Batman Cape and utility built. Awesome. Like as we and I'm like, we should all be able to work capes. It does. Is it a? Is it a tearaway? Does it? Is it a safety Cape if I got velcro or something? Yeah, yeah. I'm very worried about the Cape's around next stuff. Oh, yeah. No, this thing, like let's this way it falls off. Like with a gust of the wind. But all these teachers are like ice e with your son, writing the Cape, it's great, you know, and just hilarious. So that was probably my highlight of the week, you know, and and any lowlights NIA don't have lowlights not this week anyway. Yeah, we try to keep those to a minimum. Yeah, so yeah, I haven't. I haven't been watching a lot of stuff. I watched a lot of cheers in the background at work, just having playing in the background. That was a lot of fun. Cheers, like the old eighty show. Okay. 'cause I'm like in in a in a good place withdrawal. So I just wanna hear Ted Danson voice to dances voice. Oh, that's just what I've been doing before we get into what we're watching for the we. We do have a few corrections from last week that I wanna touch on. Oh, please. So the barley wine I was drinking. I said, it was an Uqaab. You see ABA. Yes, right. Well, apparently the squiggly line in front of the u. s. so somehow I missed it, but you know, it's not. It's not fully my fault because the s was written in like one of those, like legalese, sort of like legal brief type of s.'s. You know where it's like that squiggly with the lines going through it and stuff. Yeah, I was like, well, it didn't look like an s. but apparently like compared to the other letters, it looked like just a squiggly lines, but apparently it's an SO. It's a su- Kaba I dunno Sakaba Sakaba I guess anyway. So I wanted. Say it was a twenty eighteen Firestone Walker Sakaba just for those listening before they chastise me for the other thing was overlord. I said they were flying c seventeen in the opening scene, which is what the airborne jumped in Norman, and those were actually see forty-sevens. So c. seventeen is a modern day. Cargo plane. That is. I mean, I guess airborne can jump out of it or I don't know. Maybe they could about anything right, suppose so, but essays. How about how about, okay? No, say a c. seventeen. This massive. Like I think it's called like the galax additive. No, I'm not even go there. 'cause I don't need to make a correction next week. Yeah. Did you catch my mistake? You probably didn't catch my mistake, which one? I'm just kidding. Numerically my mistake was the largest. I called the. The west. I didn't catch that. Yeah. So there you go. I we're, we're drinking though, so we're good. And then my final thing from this week, so last week you mentioned how people from TV shows, and I think you mentioned something about the good place and there's like there's like this kind of inside length lingo or memes and language to the watch it among other people to watch it. Yeah. And you mentioned you gave it a comparison to Seinfeld, and I was sitting in a meeting one day this week, and I'm seeing this woman and I look over and I was just like, man, hands. Yeah, it was like one of those moments where you're like. Yeah, if I said that anyone, they know, but I don't want to embarrass her because like she has more masculine hands than I do. I was afraid to shake. I mean, she's like, Chicago, she she'll crush you with your hands. She probably would. It would hurt. So the next segment you wanted to get into. Shifting gears. But yeah, I'd get bikes in here somehow. What we're watching or what did you want to call it? What we're watch. Yeah. So I think so now playing now is is the is the is the what I tried to throw out last week, but I didn't. We didn't really discuss it, but to me trailers are always about coming soon. And what's up to come, what's yet to come. Yeah, definitely. And then as we progress as the shows come out and as the movies get released and we see them, then they were in a now playing space, even though we've already seen it seen part of it. Other people out there have a chance to see it. So I wanted to start a segment called now playing where we just catch up and we kind of do a comparison of the trailers that we reviewed specifically, and then anything novel we see in the space of the things that we've watched. Yeah, if I could start it, we, we didn't cover this movie, but last week it was less Saturday night. So almost week ago we had a family movie night. We watched mwana. Oh, cool. So, yeah, Disney movie. I thought it was really good. It was well done. I think. Kind of like your typical Disney like songs reminded me a little bit of like Aladdin in in a way. Well, he's a trickster. Yeah, the genie and then the trickster you know, we I've been. I've been talking and writing about Joseph Cambell Allott and and the mythology of all peoples are very similar. They have these similar troops and similar deities and very, like you said, it's very an origin stories. Exactly that, yeah. And I know you did do an article on our website compared to like business models and stuff. So that's why I wanted to bring it up because we did watch the movie. And I mean, well, done just a well done. Disney movie, kept everybody's interest. We devoured a ton of popcorn and the boys really enjoyed it, and you know, clear tonight enjoyed it so, but yeah, that was last week. And then this week actually just a matter of like minutes ago finished the first episode of maniac that we cut. Yeah. Yeah, I love so many came out like last night or midnight or whatever Netflix decides is midnight for them. Zulu time I was. I saw it as I was going to sleep, and I was like, who I kinda wanna see this and I started to watch it. Did you sacrifice sleep for maniac? And I could not put it down. I literally I I watched, I binged it more than I've binged anything. How many episodes I got five episodes in got halfway through it. So let me guess. You got to sleep about three AM. Well, I did. Yeah, I watched. I could only get one in at work because of all the stopping and starting so for. Yeah, so about two AM and then watched one during the course of the day, but it was it's the most unsatisfying when we have to stop and start at work while you're doing work and you're like, oh, I miss something, visually, let me rewind that. So yeah, and my word blocks Netflix. So I can't. So wait a minute. You said it was out at midnight, whatever Netflix things as midnight. And what time was that here in time or attic time? I don't know. I mean, it was already out by the time. It's been here, so I'm sure it was out before midnight. No. Okay. Let me rephrase it. What time did you start watching? I started watching around midnight. Oh, okay. And they're like forty minutes, forty one minutes. So they're not. It's right. It's right there. I mean, we watched one episode that was the first thing I saw what I saw it. I was like, ooh, Jimmy likes us run time. Well, the funny thing is we've got the boys to bed and I looked, it's forty one minutes. Why not? Through the first episode intended, I can watch it. Did you get the feeling that it was like shot on an iphone or something? So no, I very like well, before you get into it. Yeah. The reason I say that is very like almost like high frame rate and looks like a Mexican soap opera like as far as super clean. Right, right, right. Yes, super clean. Yes, I don't. I didn't get that because I guess because we, I'm still a little put off. Well, I don't know not put us neither right word, but after seeing unseen last week and knowing what that fish, I, that super wide angle lens on something like an iphone or something like that. I didn't get that. I got really got hung up in the world building that they were doing and maniac. And especially in that first episode, what what was like a key part for you? Because I'm trying not to do the spoilers because now I've seen five. Yeah, no, I don't want spoilers. I mean, it ended really when they got into their pods or whatever. And that's kind of where the first episode ends. Right. And I think the first episode so far hasn't really sold me. Jona hill seems a little dull. Yeah. I don't know. It seems like I mean, I'm definitely intrigued. I wanna watch more episodes. I'm not saying I don't wanna watch more episodes, but the thing that I think and I don't want to say turns me off, but the thing that like slows it down for me is Joni hills, melancholy performance of, yeah, he's just to like it's almost not even depressed. I would say almost like to flat. Well, it's definitely he's definitely playing the straight man and as Emma stone is like angry who it's not an stone Emma stone. I didn't hear. I didn't hear you. You're right. You're right. Emma stone freak me out. I was like, wait a minute. What did I get run now? Emma stone is like all over the place. Kind of. Yeah, yeah, amp. Angry is a nice way to put it in subsequent episodes. You'll see her point of view her perspective, and it's kind of neat. You'll see that pre testing space played out from her point of view. So you get a little more of a taste of her angle on it, and she's definitely the the driver behind this. There's amazing storytelling, amazing world building. I mean, it's just it. It completely throws you off of your game when it shows what is it? The statue of many liberties. I thought it was like, yeah, it was like the statue of national liberty or something, or it was. At its. It's like a, it's a Russia. It's a, it's one of those places that it's, it's showing you a world that you're familiar with, but enough disjointed nece to show you that it is not a contemporary world and to be that was awesome. Just the world building and it's like weird futuristic, right? Yeah. It's more like a parallel universe where things develop differently and like we, you know if we had stayed on space program but then didn't develop personal computers. I know I like that because I'm like, wait, they're very advanced in like it follows the whole idea of having a socialist funny to say socialist, maybe even a communist mentality. You know where where it's state, I right, and I think that's, I think that's well, you might be. You might be saying that because you're further ahead in the series than I am and sadly like, no, I'm not. I literally tell you that they, they throw you off of this game, and yet that is the least of your concerns. Each of the each episode plays out as a vignette, just like we had the guy. Okay. Anticipated or thought of where they go into a recollection and there's this great through line. I'm not saying there's not, but I'm just saying each episode has this highly stylized viewpoint, and it's just it plays out. And you know, now we're going. To bitches day. Tell me, I don't know, but are the different directors. Is that why it stylized each episode? No, it's not. It's all Corey. Okay. Corey Fukunaga. Oh yeah. Yeah, yeah. So Corey Fukunaga who is now? He has been dubbed the next director of the next JAMES BOND movie. So I'm fully excited for that. I was joking about getting Matthew mcconnahey to do a turn as q, having ecstasy, existential crisis. The way he did in in that true detective, but Cary Fukunaga Kerry Fuga Naga is the director of all of these, and he just plays with genre plays with these two actors allows them to run through different scenarios. It's it's, it's an amazing place in space to play. I saw I heard an interview with Carlton Koos and last week we talked about Jack Ryan and Carlton couse was the producer of that, and he was also the producer of lost. And when he was. Reducing that he was talking about how great it was to have the time the space, the freedom to do eight episodes over the course of how many months he had as opposed to their shooting schedule for like lost when they were doing lost and they're shooting for the networks. And it was like it's a shock. It's a shock to get that kind of freedom. And you know, carries going from HBO to net flicks. So there's a little bit less of a shock, but he knows what he wants. He knows the the boundaries he can push. He knew the budget that he had. So he was pushing the envelope on on spending money on spending money, smartly on putting it into the sets and putting him this story, getting the actors and just doing an amazing job. So I, you know, the setup in the first one, it really gets the ball rolling, and I didn't want it to stop. So that's one of the reasons I kept watching. Well, you sold me. I guess. I guess you know, will watch episode two and three, and we'll see where it goes. Awesome. Guy. I mean, you mentioned bond bond guy. I'm not a full bond guy. I'm I was big fan of Pierce Brosnan. I like that bond. I liked the idea when Quentin Tarantino was trying to pitch socially what he wanted to do with bond, kind of bring it back to a cloak and dagger make it a little more bloody, a little less little pristine. And I think Danny Boyle did that a little bit. I think Cary Fukunaga through Naga can do a little bit more with the characters. So that'll be interesting to me. I guess. We'll see. I mean, I'm not really, you know, I mean, bond is okay. I mean, I'm not saying I don't like it. I'll watch a bond movie, but I'm not like a huge bond fan. The main thing about it is I'm not really into like movie franchises all that much. Yeah. Even Star Wars stuff. For example, you know what I mean? Like the first two and a half or good. But. He lost. He lost e- walks. Yeah, it kind of lost me at the US which you know I'll tolerate him, but, but no. I mean, like I don't get me wrong. I still go and see the Star Wars movies in like I like Star Trek, you know, and I'll watch, you know, what? Is it? The odds of the evens always forget star. The evens evens the. Yeah, the only way that is, if you don't like if you like the first one, then you like them all if you if you didn't like the first one, it's the evens. Though. So quick aside. So you know, I'm like, when did that come out? Like eighty? Like seventy nine or something, right. Yeah, seventy eight seventy nine. Yeah, exactly. So my uncle worked for paramount studios this whole life, and he would always get like these releases, you know, and all these movies like right when they would come out in the theater and he would have them at home. So we're sitting there and we're like, oh, Star Trek. You know, we're all excited. My dad was there and my cousin and my uncle and everybody's round like to watch Star Trek, right? And they're so excited. So like like ready to rock and roll over Star Trek. So Spock does that long spacewalk that we're puts everybody to sleep and I'm like, oh my God. I'm like, struggling to stay awake. I'm like nine years old or something, you know or whatever and I'm struggling to stay awake. And Finally, I just sit up and I look at the sofa and there's everyone in the room is sleeping. It was hilarious, and I'm like, all right. I don't feel bad. Man. I'm out boom, and I just like racked out, you know. But yeah. So I mean, franchise movies me, you know, I'll I could watch him, but I can also leave him. Yeah, it's a very interesting idea there that franchise. I mean, franchises are definitely the way an easy way for movie production company to know that they're going to make money. I guess it's more of a sure thing, and I think that's what they like predictable. Sure. It's predictable and it's a sure thing for the audience to the audience also has some something invested in knowing what they're getting into. So I think it's it's very interesting to say that it seems like a lot more people are spoiling on the idea of franchises just for franchise sake. And I think that's what has happened with Star Wars right now. And I think there's, you know, people are pumping the brakes, so we'll, we'll see, we'll see what the world has for. You know, like it's so funny. Because Disney did both Star Wars Star Wars and the marvel universe and with such different results, you know. So it's it's very, it's very interesting to see how they're going to continue because definitely gonna keep making those they own. They own the franchises. So they're gonna make. They're gonna, continue make movies, but how they make them is going to be the important part. I mean, this might be a little out of out of order than what we did with the show notes and how we have things set up, but should we just get into captain marvel? We're talking about franchises in sure marvel. So you know, and then we'd get the other stuff. I mean, we were going to get into, you know, a little bit later, but, hey, let's let's jump into it. Cool. My first question now I am. You know, I refrained from doing research because I wanted this to be fresh. I come in my ignorant comic book, nerd self. I'm not really into comic books and I don't know much about it. I can assume captain marvel is the good-looking space alien. Am I right. Am I right? You are correct. Okay. So the second thing is the marvel universe in the marvel comics from like the way Bax when marvel for started, is it all based on captain marvel and she liked the original superhero or something. This is my understanding that captain marvel was originally a man, and that was all right, and it was owned by DC. Now I might have to fact check this, but we can see corrections for next week. We'll save it for the next week, but because it was named captain marvel and this is the time before you know when when all those boys are running around and just making up weird characters and weird name things, you know, to put into comic books like Stanley and all this you're talking. Yeah, Stanley, all those guys were just like competing. So marvel being marvel said, oh, well, we're gonna have to by captain marvel from us. So they bought captain marvel. They brought it over as a guy. And then eventually they changed it to a woman and the marvel universe love. It and she stuck. So I think it's not the basis, but it is one of the strongest, one of the most powerful characters within the marvel universe. And that's amazing because I don't think I've ever heard of captain marvel so that, yeah, I mean, it's like if it's that strong of an anchor in the marvel universe, why are they now bringing out captain marvel when you've had iron man for like how many movies now or you've had captain America for like a few movies and you know the avengers for all these movies is, is she not an adventure? She I don't. I don't think she is now. I mean it would you talk about the lineage of the comic books and stuff like that on the canon the, you know, the original, the original evanger 's were ant man and the wasp. The wasp was the one who named the vendors, the vendors. So when marvel decided they were gonna make movies, they actually use iron man as a lesser liked character because. There was a lot less to lose their. They said, we'll take a well known but not beloved. We are going to start with captain America because that was the initial attent was let's start with captain America. It's, you know, like a flagship character within the marvel universe. No, no, let's use iron man and we'll break it in and we'll see how it does. And if it does well, then we can fold in these other characters. So that was where they started and it paid off. Iron man to this today is seen as one of the biggest characters, even though it wasn't. You know, it was more of a black Sabbath song was a marvel character, so it everything's paid off for marvel throughout the whole phase. You know, these, are there done in phases and were at the end. We're coming to the end of the first phase. And when you look at like you mentioned, you know they wanted to go with the lesser character and so on. But I mean, I think they're playing it safe and I think you have two things. You know, the one is the charactered self ironman or. Or captain America or or whoever the character might be. And again, whether it's even DC or marvel, Batman, and superman, and wonder, woman, Spiderman, all these, all these franchise stories that you have, and then you have the other side of it, which is, you know, Robert Downey junior, you're looking at Iran man in this case, and Robert Downey juniors identified with iron man where if you look at like a Batman or if you look at a Spiderman, whether it's DC or marvel, there's no Spider-Man that has carried that franchise over the years. Yeah. When you and then you just oppose that with, you know, Hugh Jackman playing wolverine in, it's like exact is been the wolverine for what? Twenty years now and every two to three movies, Spiderman. Well, three movies every Spiderman gets swapped out. Exactly. Yeah. And then when Disney bought marvel, there is existing deals where the fantastic, four, all the mutants and. Spiderman, we're all owned by other production companies. So they had to like not do productions with those characters, you know, Spiderman and the and the mutants through the x. men were always huge, huge characters, much bigger than the avengers, you know? Yeah, time. Yeah. So now the tables have really turned on that I've ever been a kid, you know, and and I had a friend who is into comic books and this is like probably like mid seventies mid eighties, let's say, so I'm probably like six, seven, eight years old up into about, like, you know, fifteen sixteen seventeen years old that timespan and he would have these comics in like I was clueless to these comics. And I mean he had stacks and stacks. These comics of all of the characters that you see today. And I tried reading a few and I just couldn't buy into it because it was one of those things where it's not that I could buy in or couldn't buy an right. Like if you were a sp-, I always love Spiderman. He was probably my favorite like soup. For hero. If you want to, you know, call it a superhero, but he was like my favorite, I think Spiderman, yeah, and I'd love those like I don't know what like early seventies late sixties cartoons that were just comic book in the way they were designed, but would turn me off to like all the marvel stuff and the whole marvel universe and everything was just way too many characters and wait like it was like, if you didn't keep up, you got lost really fast felt you could keep up with Spiderman even if you missed an addition of comic book or something. You know what I mean? Yeah, but there's eight thousand characters in the moral universe. Eight thousand eight thousand characters, so it's very easy to get lost very quickly. Wow, eight thousand. So when you say eight thousand, that's like, including like all the mutants, all the superheroes all the anti villains or villains anti heroes, whatever, like venom and all that stuff. Yes, characters. Yeah. Just generally the kid number of. Characters. Well, no wonder, I never got into it. I couldn't which lineage to follow. But, hey, getting back to captain marvel in the movie because that's why we're and the trailer. Yeah. So Sam Jackson does my favorite thing when it comes to these movies that is what's that he starts off. He describes the movie in how ridiculous it is. Well, I was sitting there and there was like a big explosion and then there was like a crash car chase, and then there was like an starts going into the whole like he just starts describing how ridiculous movies going to be. And then he's like, you're not from around here. Yeah. No, it's amazing. He's he's, he's picture-perfect in it. He does. He does his thing. They let him do his thing and it's and it's great. They've mastered the aging technology where they take twenty years off the character just by putting some dots in their face and put into a lot of cameras around them and stuff so he can play a throwback character. What did you think about the blockbuster opening scene, so. Okay. Okay. Let me back up. Just a second. Can can, I guess the story. Tell me the story. Okay. The story is going to be. There's like it's going to start with a space battle. This is it. This is my opinion. I mean, I, I have no insider knowledge. It's gonna start with a space, battle of whatever captain marvel and those weird alien people that are chasing her or whatever are going to do. And her spaceship blows up like in near earth, orbit and she comes crashing in, but nobody's monitoring space by the way because they don't even see this coming. Right, right. So then she crashes into the blockbuster, and I was thinking about that, you know, get into what you were asking and it's like for nostalgic reasons. I mean, I don't know why, but it's like, so the audience can ruin ongo. Remember, blockbuster, he right, you know, and all this stuff and it's like, okay, I think they just put it in there for like nostalgic reasons to like right to peg kind of jenex audience. So it's very interesting. He said that. So when we. When you say gen-x, it's great. We watch us in rough cuts this week because it was a huge thing. Okay. Within within twenty four hours, it had over a hundred million downloads hundred nine million hundred. I wanna say over because I forgot what how much as one hundred million. How did nine million in twenty four hours and like we like to joke. I was only about five percent of that, but I watched a lot and then we went into a rough cuts meeting that day that Tuesday and we watched it the entire movie. You watched a letter trailer. No, just the trailer, just the trailer. Oh, so we watched a trailer a lot that morning they went to rough cuss meeting and we watched it in the rough cuts meeting to with like thirty people in there. And in the meeting, there's are you at liberty to define a rough cuts meeting? I do have to do that. Okay, so I don't know what that means. So a bunch of we're making a lot of promos for television and a bunch of creatives programmers, schedulers, and production people are in the room to talk about the different cuts of promos that were cutting. So for all, the different shows are on television. There's promos are group is called on air promotions, and we make the primos it's the more internal marketing. Gotcha. Okay. So we meet almost every day three or four times a week to watch these rough cuts and every now and then we'll throw a couple of trailers in. I guess they did the programming for this week because we watched captain marvel and we watched Mary Poppins returns. Gotcha. Yet, which will get to a little bit, we'll get to that later. But so back to the blockbuster throw the Brock BUSTER nostalgic though. So hide watched it many times, and I thought was great. You know, it's the throwback. It is putting it in a place in time in the past and half the room was a buzz about it. And I heard someone say, oh, that's so crazy. So she crashed into the last blockbuster. In existence. And I was like, oh, no, you've missed the Mark on like the millennial that knows that there's one blockbuster left open in bend, Oregon. Yeah. So it missed the idea of nostalgia on someone that's a millennial that's on, you know, up hot on the news about knowing that there's one blockbuster left. They thought it was contemporary. They thought it was from this time, and it was just a happenstance that she crashed into the last blockbuster on earth. So was it supposed to be the last blockbuster and bend Oregon? No, it's not. It's it's. It is both not the last blockbuster and bend Oregon because I emailed a manager, and I said, is this the big news that you couldn't tell me about? And she said, no, we're not involved in that at all. I really wanted to be, but we weren't. And then it it. It was funny because my daughter is twelve, Audrey twelve, and when she watched it later that day she was feeling the style GIC and she remembers, as you know, as a six year old or whatever going to blockbuster and. Oh wow, and getting a lot of movies because we did the when blockbuster was in its final throes of, you know, trying to not get toppled by net flicks the you could have a subscription where you could get them in the mail just like net flicks, but you could bring it into the blockbuster store. I remember that yes and exchange it in the store. And then in the summertime, they had a better deal where you could have two movies out all the time. You just you have them out and you pay for a monthly subscription and then you as fast as you can watch them, you can bring them back and get a new movie. So we watch their whole library one summer for Audrey, and she was she was, you know, she would watch a movie. If if there's time we could go get another one for tomorrow or another one for later tonight or something like that. Yeah, yeah. And then just the cutoff? She's twelve. My son's nine. He has no ret, his no recollection. He didn't watch anything from blockbuster, he's all streaming all the time, you know, so has no nostalgic connection and they're only three years apart. You couldn't care less. Yeah, yeah, yeah, men, nothing. Nothing to him so. Okay. Getting back to the story. Yeah. Oh, she crashes into blockbuster, which is kind of like Bryce, right? Like there's no recollection of a blockbuster, like the crash causes her to have him nesia rate. So what she's looking for his clarification as the movie goes on of who she is, why she's there and all this stuff who's ever chasing her through space finds her on earth, whatever that is a war in sues, and they need to see feels she needs to defenders before like some hostile takeover. Obviously, lots of explosions are going to happen car-chase apparently. And then she saves her. Earth by destroying earth. And then the end is probably going to be hurt. Overlooking the devastation of what she saved in a panning cameras scene or something like, that's my idea of what this is going to be like, Caesar's going to try and figure out like after the initial crash who she is, why sees their Weiss needs to savor, she probably even know. And then she's like, but I'm here for you and there's this battle and everything blows up, but yet it all gets saved at the end. Typical marvel? Yeah, I don't typical marvel movie, you know exactly what's going to happen. Well, no, I think you know that she's going to live. We know that this is the this is is. This is a, it's to me. It's neat because it's a throwback within the marvel universe. Will you define that? I don't know what that means because I'm not really like in the marvel like van fan fandom. I'm merely speaking about the lineage of the films that have come out. Oh, okay. Yeah, I got you. We're on the, we're on the third movie of every single of the one of the characters that we've been introduced to garner galaxy has to movies in the third ones on the block. We don't know. It's happened with that, you know, th or has three movies, you know, ironman has three movies every and captain America has three movies. So even venoms coming out for Spiderman which could lead to more Spiderman. Yeah, but that's a different universe. I mean, it's it's a similar universe, but it's still spider-man's marvel. Spider-man's marvel. Okay. You're right. But what you're saying is sped, it Spiderman was Spiderman was in civil war and he was in and he was in. He was in the avengers. Yeah, so so Infinity war. But the hulk the hulk is in there, but the hawk has never had great success. Yes, I think Thor. Ragnarok was the best hulk movie, but but this is interesting because it's the introduction to a character in their first movie. So it's either this is going to be her first movie. She's gonna play a big role in the second half of Infinity war. So I just think to me, that's that's the thing that feels good. It feels good that she's a female character in the space, and it can be her story. But then we also aren't going to focus on the fact that she's a woman. Do you know the time when it changed from captain marvel being a man to a woman was like in the sixties or something. I do not know that. Yeah, I think that'd be kinda cool to know, but whatever we could come back with that later in the show notes or something. But overall, I mean, I can assume you're going to watch this. I'm definitely gonna watch this because you're like marvel guy. I am. The family is we're big fans. The kids are into it now. Yeah, it we're, we're sold on Netflix. I see. Like Thor, ragnarok and I've seen it, but you know, I see like a lot of these stream. Ming? Marvel movies and the thing that I wind up getting so like hung up on is an investment of time. Right. You know, I mean, like like with boys get up like at the crack done. Yeah. And it doesn't matter what time you go to bed. They're demanding of your time in the morning and all this stuff. And and we get up early throughout the week and stuff. It's like my time is valuable and I can't put a lot of time into watching stuff. So like you mentioned earlier when you saw that maniac was like forty minutes and it was right in my wheelhouse. You're right man. Like I'm gonna watch all of them just because it's forty minutes. Like they go to bed it. Let's say they go to bed at eight were done at like eight forty, five brushing teeth in bed by nine, and we're up early in the morning. You know, like it's so easy to do like how not. Whereas, you know, you start looking at these marvel movies or you look at even, you know, the one hour, our five, Netflix, and and Amazon prime streaming shows such, you know, I mean, you're getting into those like places where like time is of the essence, you know, and if and then if we do have time for like a two hour movie, it's almost like mwana, right? We watched Miana last week like now we're watching like with the three and a five year old can tolerate as opposed to, you know, Thor. Ragnarok were like, yes, fantasy but like three year olds going to be like, what on earth is going on? You know, like much. It's a little much exactly so it and maybe it's that I'm not ever going to watch it. But it might be that I'm in a place in my life where, right? Now's not the time to watch it. You know, right. Where you have a nine year old twelve year old. You're like five years ahead of me. You know what I mean? Silly in five years. We could probably do those things. So the middle of phase two, then you can start watching it with them and then start unfolding it back. You know, we just, we just got over watching. Almost the transformers. We watch a I four transformers. Now braces really excited. He wants to start watching the iron man's and and still on the fence about that because the I I in man's kind of gritty lawn, you know? And I think that's, that's the big thing in the first ironman, which one was that? I can't remember. That's the one where he has the heart transplant in the cave and stuff, and he's building all the different ironman suits. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. And then. Who's the character with the whip whiplash. Right. No, that as no, who is who's the guy that played them? He was nine and a half weeks. Mickey Rourke, Mickey Rourke, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I pull out the sexy movie access. So overall, though, I mean, like you said, you're going to watch it. I'm probably not going to watch it anytime soon. I'm not saying ever, but I'm not gonna watch it at the theater and I'm well. Okay. Yes, I am one of the hundred nine million because you forced me into it for this podcast. But yeah, no, I mean like that, whatever it is not your Cup of tea. It's okay to say that the thing is like, here's the funny side of it though. Like if I were single in, I had all the time in the world to do like nothing, but like like guy stuff like I'd probably be into it, you know. But like I'm a family man, you know, and right and like I got to like, get up early for work, and I want to do other things. It's just not into a right now. Right? Like I'm patient. Anyway, anyway. So any last comments on captain marvel before we move on? I love the cards in this one. When at the end it says, what makes her a hero kind of it's a play on the words, the word her shows up first and then it reveals the and the to become a hero. Oh, I got. So it makes her a hero, but I took it as as Russia test or whatever you want to put into it. I also I thought it it could mean if you think about negativity, it means the fact that they're bearing the fact that she's a woman, but then on the positive side, if you're not emphasizing the fact that she's a woman and she's doing womanly things Ben, she's just a bad ass in this space. You know, it's like when gal gadoe comes on the screen, she is wonder, woman, you know, it is front and center and she's an amazing, amazingly, beautiful woman. There's there's no hiding it, but with with captain marvel it's she's just a bad ass. And it could be anybody under the helmet or in that suit. Yeah, but she's still good looking come on. She's she's it. Yes, she's incredibly attractive. But I think they, they don't put her in a boost. Well, sure. Yeah, here, here's the funny thing though. So, and this is my final comment of it, which is more comment of women in leader roles. You know, I guess it's kind of what we're talking about. But so there was a podcast I was listening to and I really got it like jot down notes, but it's hard when I'm riding my bike to work listening to a podcast and somebody says some profound statement and like I'm flying downhill at thirty miles. I don't know what to do at that point, but other than remember what they said. But I don't remember the podcast anyway. So what they were talking about was women in leadership roles in movies, and in politics and all this stuff. And and but mostly movies though because that's where you know, there's a lot of late capitalism and money made, let's say, right, and you get women in these roles and there was not. There was a time when there were not enough women in like leadership kind of role like a captain over role, whereas they would be more in a supporting role in like the sexy, like, I don't know. What would you even call it? Like the, the supporting actress. I, yeah, the kind of a role, you know that just is there like get the guys, all hot and bothered or something, you know? Yeah, black widow. Yeah, black. But anyway, so now the shifted over to having women in these leader roles in women in these like dominant roles, and this was a woman in this podcast, and she was like a guest on this podcast I was listening to and what she was saying was that her idea of doing all that is still exploiting women because now rather than having women just looking good to get people into the box office. Now they're selling women to get people into the boxoffice because women are in these roles because now they've been excluded from these roles for so long that it was like becoming offensive, let's say, and now they're in these roles to where the main characters and in order to be the main characters, they still need to be good. Look. They still need to have that attractiveness, you know, as the way we see in captain marvel to bring like the people who are in the tops of the executive offices, the money and all this stuff, and there's just using them as now the tools to get him in. You know, I don't know. Maybe there's something there and to me, it makes I'm I'm a big believer in that, and that's why I figure to me the most important thing is who's directing it who's producing it who's at the production company. You know what I mean? And so runs deeper than who the main character is. Yeah, I, it's, it's a superficial argument to say, this character is a woman and she needs to be beautiful. You know, she needs to be, and that was the argument that was being made because they didn't get into that deeper, like who's in the back, who's in the back office kind of thing sense of the production company? Yeah, and boat. And this is co produced by a couple. So it has a woman as a co, director of captain marvel, which is great. Great. Black Panther was great in its diversity. You know, to have Ryan Kugler directing that you know off of creed enough of all fruitvale station. You know, like he has a grit. He has the street cred. He has credibility for taking on this space and he and he uses a female cinematographer. So it's like it's it's amazing that women are in these roles and they just need to have better pools of apprentice ships under them to draw from. And I think that's, you know, when I talked to the high executives, they complained that they can't hire enough women because there's not if women below them and I said, well, guess what? That's your fault too, because you're not hiring just the executives. You're not just hiring the sea levels and all the vice president's. You're hiring the managers and promoting the people. So it's basically you can't complain that there's not enough talent at the high levels because the mid levels are. Men because you're populating those pools with Ben by doing whatever it is you're doing as you know, as a high executive. So you know, I don't. I don't buy that. So you have to see all levels of all industries with women and people of color and everything. And then and then eventually it'll feel like it's evening out, and I agree with that. I mean, I think the argument that I was listening to was a little bit shallow because they were just targeting the primary and main actors and characters in these stories rather than digging deep into who's actually doing the writing and the directing producing. Yeah, but yeah, I think you're right. And I think what you're saying to also gets into like society at large. It's not just about the entertainment industry. When you look at, I work in education. And when you look at my field in why you have, I mean, even a disproportionate number of female, sometimes. That get into teaching, but then what winds up happening is you have a disproportionate number of males maybe in the district office and as in ministries, you know, and well, how does that happen when you have so many women in the teaching profession, but so few women in the administrative offices and so on, you know, and it's like. And it could be different district by district. I mean, obviously, but you know, it's just it's it calls in the question. Like what are those apprenticeships roles in? Not just the movie industry, but all industries, you know, and and even like you said, not just women, but you know, people of color of all, like races and genders and all the whatever it is, you know, right. So anyway, I think we'd be kept a marvel up, move on. Let's move on taking. I'm taking your lead. We'll we'll which way you're going with it. Now, how about standing Ali? All right? Yeah, I say Ali Mohammed. Is it a boxing. No laurel and hardy, right? Yes. But, yeah, you know, are you a little hardy fan? I'm not not a huge laurel, hardy fan. I'm a John C Reilly fan. Who can fan and I like Steve Coogan. Yeah, I've always been an Abbott and Costello fan. Okay. We have on our team. We have who's on once on second. Third, the guy's name I wanna find out. I to tell me who's what's on second. Third, imagine a baseball team yet guys names. Why should you guys baseball? Who's on for Swanson second? I don't know yet. I'm not yet. Who's on first what's on second. I don't know his own. Baseball whose fuskus I mean, the guy's name. They got food. Food. Who's on first. Little who's on first. Exactly. But I think Avidan Castilla was a little more contemporary. They were a little more. I don't know, like polished, you know, when they with their movies avenue, Castillo meet Frankenstein, Abbott and Costello, meet the invisible man. They had all these movies, you know were like laurel and hardy were more like, I don't know what nineteen twenties, you know, like vaudeville vaudeville. Yeah, I don't know. What do you think an initial impression? So to me, the initial impression is like we did in like Flynn. It kind of hit me in that same space where again, there's there's this style Jeff for twenty years ago, and then there's the style Jeff for one hundred years ago. Sure. And have you know John c. Riley and Steve Coogan? I mean, they're they're fairly big names. I would say this doesn't feel like a big movie. It feels like a smaller art house movie, but you could tell that it has, you know the height of production value. It's put together very professional, a Lister space. So I like the way it plays out. It has a lot of heart. You know more heart than the John C Reilly will Ferrell movies. But it it it really again another another story of friendship that just goes deeper than anything. You know. I mean, it kind of strikes me as the trailer junkies. Jim, Jim, whichever way you wanna go. I think the thing about it though is movies directed towards the baby boomers. I have a feeling because it's like what they may be grew up with and what their parents grew up with, like our grandparents, millennials, stuff, I don't know like. Are they even connected laurel and hardy? Probably not. I mean, I think do you think that's why they went withstanding Ali to kind of give you a little more separation? I don't know. I don't know. I mean the thing about it though, is what I like about the way this is designed and set up. It's more about their off camera friendship and turmoil than it is there. I mean off camera stage is with their like public life because I mean nowadays, there's so many tabloids and social media lake. We know every I should say everything, but we know a lot about celebrities were back then like we knew what was released or what you saw film. Yeah, nowadays, like no hiding. If it was standing Ali. Today, we would know everything about them and their turmoil and where they're traveling, the shows are doing and what's going on backstage and sell fees and Instagram. And like there'd be nothing to be like there'd be no movie to make because we would already know it, you know? Yeah. But I don't know it. It. It seems cool. I mean, I like the idea like the story. This is one I probably watch on streaming for sure. I'm not going to see in the theater, right? But yeah, I mean, like this is one of those movies where you know you're going to see it on Netflix and it's like, hey, you know what? Let's watch it. Yeah, laurel, hardy, wine out. You know, these are the. Like some of the like the, what would you call it? Like the godfathers of modern comedy? Yeah, I think it's interesting to have them struggle. You know, when they're such a vaudeville 's just really about hijinks comedy and just always being on. And like you said, this is the parts where they're not always on, but they, you know, they continue to have their moments where they're the private moments of humor between them, but then there's a truth that they're speaking to to one another into their other loved ones, and it's it's really nice, you know, like the kings of improv and this story is around what goes on when they're doing improv. Yeah. So I think that's cool. So are you using this to tell me that you've done a bicycle podcast without me and then. We're going to go through a rocky patch like Stanton. I love that. No, but maybe I'll use this as a tool in the future. You know, I'll be. You got me laughing. I'll tell all my guests on my bicycle podcasts. Yeah, I do this other thing, but just don't tell Ted. All right. So I mean, like I said, I mean, I'll probably see this one on streaming. I don't think I would see this in the theater, but what's your? What's your take and look on the future of Ted Ted van Leigh's for this one? Yeah, I don't know. I think this is something that we stumble upon it. We might see it. I don't see us venturing out to red box to to get this one. So it's not something that you would do with intent and purpose. You're just like bump into a red box. Mission goes, whoa. And like if falls out and you're like, William as well, watch it now. It would have to be streaming and the kids have to say they don't wanna watch Black Panther again, because literally the other night, they're like, let's just watch Black Panther again, and I was like, all right, get it while net flicks wait. So when they're like nine and twelve, the act like they're three and five. Watching things over and over and over and oath. Well, not that many times, but they but they know, but they know net flicks is gonna lose all the Disney content so they they do have that sense of urgency with Disney content on Netflix. All right. Well, maybe I should start watching some Disney stuff now. All right. Mary Poppins speaking highs, knee, Mary Poppins. I love her transitions this week man. Well. Cajal. That was all you. So this is Mary Poppins returns. We have Emily blunt, and like I said, we're in the rough cuts meeting, and I tested this joke with them first. And after we watched the whole trailer, I said to the room of forty people. I said, I don't believe Emily blunts accent in this. What do you think about that? You know, I don't. Yeah. It's a little too British and then Pena's von lesbian. He does make a cameo. Who penis fun lesbian. I don't know who that is. Dick Van Dyke. Come on. I explain it killed me. But yeah, he makes a cameo. So he does the song and dance in the trailer, the Suming it's a cameo. What would you say? Yes. Well, he actually played that role in the original Mary Poppins under a lot of, no. I know I know a lot a lot of makeup so so now he just needs less makeup because he's older. Oh, I got you. And he does. He literally does little song dance and and yeah, no, it's it's great. I think it's it's gotten a style, Joe. It's got rob Marshall at the helm, so you know, you're gonna have like a Chicago kind of feel you're going to have that be the big numbers are gonna get pulled off with the quality and style. Well, you see it in the trailer to me the most. You know, to me, I wasn't. I wasn't really sold on the trailer. Nothing really excited me about it until she spun the bowl and the and the animation kicked in to me. That's the penguin stuff. And they originally Mary Poppins. And then this. They kind of plaster that on and it's a mix of two d animation that's like superimposed on top of it as well as some really cool special effects. I really liked that part of it. Yeah. The first half of this trailer didn't really do anything for me. I don't like the kids grown up and I agree with you with spinning the bowl, and then you have the two d animation in the cartoon looking. I don't know, like almost colored pencil, look as opposed to the three d. animation like you get like a finding nemo kind of a movie or something. Yeah, right. And what I like about it is like we see so much of the modern day three d. animation, computer generated graphic type stuff and it it's almost like relieving getting back to a cartoon again. Right? You know, the other side of it though that I think is gonna I'm gonna struggle with this movie is I mean, I'll probably watch it because I've little boys and you know, I have a wife who love. These kind of movies, but the thing I'm going to struggle with and that's going to totally annoy Clarisa is that whenever we watch anything like this, what I do over and over and over again is a sit what he say, what he say. I missed that one. What do you say? You know, because I don't get that British accent, man, really? Oh, I can't understand. It's on a register that you can't. You can't really focus in on. It's like, you know, it's like, okay, as one who like test people for like learning disabilities? Yes. And there's like a figure ground like an auditory figure ground thing. So meaning like if there's like volume in conversation going on, but there's like all this background noise they have yours with what's going on. Right. Well, we're, my disability lies is like in accents and stuff like they could speak. When's the last time you understood somebody spoke Scottish. No mental. Of yellow paper con- pollen not go get you in cranium vote. I'm no not. Boys ends like Sputnik, spinoccoli, but quick clouds. Right? It's English, but man, it's Scottish if you ask me like, you can't understand them. And that's kind of where I am with this, like, I don't know. And then when was the ridge one leak in the sixties. Oh God. We're so bad at this. Yeah. Well, whatever, we'll say in the sixties, but you know what the most amazing thing though. Honestly, what's so I so I'm doing my show notes and I type it. I do my show notes Microsoft Word and I'm typing into word super frigid. Kella Listrik XP Ella Yoshida's right. And of course, of course, I misspell it because like I don't know how to spell that. You know, Microsoft picks up on. It puts a little like red squiggly line underneath. I right click ensure sure enough there is the career gotta close enough, the correct spelling that gets it close. I was like, there's no way that I couldn't believe it man. So there you go just for my show notes, it's spell corrected so nineteen sixty four was original, Mary Poppins. Yeah, I think here's an interesting thing. Now let's take STAN and Ollie and compare it with this movie. This movie has this these actors, you know, Linneman wells Academy Award winning Meryl Streep's Academy Award winning, but none of their title cards, say, Academy Award winner, you know, Academy Award winner, and it's just a, it's a huge movie and everybody knows it. So they don't have to put that extra bit of sales Innis in it. And yet standing Ali have to Academy Award nominees, and yet they're selling Coogan and John C Reilly as Academy Award nominees. So it's it's like to me, that's interesting that the smaller movie is trying to up its credit by throwing kademi award nominee as you know, on top of the titles. Yeah. Yeah. And this one doesn't have to do that. So. No, we we already know who these actors are and when they've won so so many Academy Awards or you know, or Academy Awards for different things. They don't have to say it. So here's the thing. I've one question about like CGI and stuff for Mary Poppins. So Pena's von lesbian is nine years old. Right. Do you think his like head is CG I'd over like a stunt double or is he actually doing that dancing? Oh, no, they I, I hope not hope. It's hope it's him doing the dancing. I hope it is too because if he's doing it to answering it ninety two years old, there's hope you know, I mean, they fit man. No, it's great. Yeah, it'll Dick Van Dyke. All right. So any last thoughts of Mary Poppins? No, you mostly that? I think Clarice inner mom is really going to enjoy this. I don't know. The boys will that much because it's like there's too much like adult acting and then I'll Telerate like like, this reminds me of the hills are alive with the sounds of Griswold. Sodomy Zik on the music know. It kinda reminds me of the sound music, right? So if you think about the sun to music, like I'm not really like into these kind of movies, but the sun music's great movie. I mean, like I remember we got Barbara Barbara's my mother-in-law, but we got Barbara for her like, I don't know what was it? Seventieth birthday. Maybe we got our like the sound of music box set, but like had all this like extra stuff. Oh, yeah, we have that too. We have that that huge, huge collector's edition of Santa music. Yeah, exactly. It comes with the soundtrack and like stuff behind stuff. Yeah. And Clarisa goes to the Hollywood bowl lake every other year with her mom to go like singing along with the sound of music thing. And they sit there and like the whole Hollywood bowl singing along to the sound music. And I'm like one year I gotta go. So I can be as like, flamboyant is I wanna be, you know. Go to sing along with the sound of music. Anyway, anyway. How about we take a break, man? I mean, all right. I got a thirty home. I got him. Like halfway three. You're halfway there. Okay. Well, I'm heading towards a head towards the rocky shores. You know, there's, there's a shipwreck on the horizon. I don't see the lighthouse, so let's go take a break and then we'll finish up with the chilling adventures of Sabrina era go. I'll be back. Okay. If you enjoy our trailer reviews, if you hate them, let us know. We love feedback. We're untwisted at t- junkies podcast and Instagram at trailer. Junkies podcast can also comment on the episodes at trailer junkies podcast dot com. Or Email is info at trailer junkies podcast dot com. And you could also leave the review and I tunes. Or wherever you get your podcast. Now, let's get back to it. Anybody says revulsion during our breaks, no way, man take care of business. Okay. All right. And we're back man, all this beer, right the well the or is it just chilling on Sabrina? The chilling chilling chilling adventures, so there is over. I typed it is how it is because I'd never mistake. Yeah, right. So getting into this one, I didn't know, and maybe I'm not miss a little bit of research and stuff, but I could tell is this from a comic book series? It is. It is. I I am right with that. So I don't know if you were familiar with the nineteen nineties show Sabrina the teenage witch. Oh, yeah, yeah. So that is the same Sabrina case is a completely different. Take on the character. Are you? I've talked about Riverdale before, but I don't think you seen it right Riverdale. No, I haven't seen it, but I've seen river dance. So Riverdale is a huge movement of great new show on Archie Archie comic book and from the same. Oh, yeah, yeah. Okay. From the same Archie comics universe, Sabrina, the teenage which is is in that same vein in that same line. So she's like a spin off character from Archie, but you wouldn't know it from the Melissa Joan Hart Sabrina, the teenage witch because it was done in a very eighties, ninety style, you know? So this is produced by the same production company as Riverdale. So it has the darkness of Riverdale and like kind of that moody, new almost say satanic. Well, that's what I'm saying. Like it has the beginnings like Riverdale, much lighter than this. And like you said, this hits you straight over the head with the goat demons, the devil, and who knows what. Else. So perria. GMs. And yeah, very deeply deeply in witchcraft, but in a witchcraft closer to American horror story than even, you know, Sabrina details or some other kind, which apparently this was in production over the CW or over at Warner Brothers and Boorda brother Senate might might have ended up doing it, but they didn't wanna do charmed and Sabrina the which is the same time because they reboot of charmed coming out. So they put this on the back burner. They the producers for Riverdale shop that around and got it sold a net flicks and I'm in, I was in, I would be interested to hear if it got darker going to net flix because you could go darker than CW in the net flicks place and net flicks is looking to round out its its offerings and always looking to to push the envelope, I think as far as what it has in content so, and it's kind of bizarre to because they start off with like the mayor. Ireland Monroe's like happy birthday when she's singing the Jack Kennedy and it's almost as if like it's a dead, Marilyn Monroe or something, I don't know. And then it's bizarre to as you watch it, go through, you see, like obviously a good looking blonde woman, and then she's like off in the woods in like almost. I don't know if it is or it's close? Well, it's pretty close the same outfit that Marilyn Monroe's wearing and the seven year itch. You know, the same white dress. Oh, yeah. Like for whatever the reason I picked up on this whole Marilyn Monroe leg like fine going on or vibe in the trailer. Yeah, I, I mean, I like it. It's, you know, it's coming out Tober twenty-six on Netflix. We're recording this on September twenty first. You know, the trailer drops in September. Thirteenth, it's about a month and two weeks out and it's only teaser trailer. So net flicks is is really compressed all of their market. And all of their pre street stuff to about a month. So I bet I bet the trailer, the first trailer for this actually drops in a couple of weeks, but I love the idea of compressing that that time line of of looking for something. I feel like, you know, we just did maniac how many weeks ago, not that many weeks ago. Right? And that brings up a couple of points I wanted to talk about too, and and mentioned that when movies have this long tail of or maybe not even a tail but like long lead time. Yeah, a long lead time. Yeah, they come out and it's like the longer it is the less successful. They're expecting their their product to be right. And it seems like lately we've been doing a lot of trailers where it's like we do the trailer, four weeks later, the whole thing drops. And then all of a sudden, like, you know, like you said, maniac. Like I feel like we just covered it now we're watching it and reviewing it, you know, and. What do you think from a marketing side of trailers and movies and just the the industry, why some are going so short? I mean, they're going like another one that's really short is the favorite that one, that one's we covered that a few weeks ago and that's ready to drop here any minute. And you know, you're looking at only a couple of weeks. And I mean there's so many of these movies and series that are coming out rapidly or quickly right after their their trailer release, whereas others are like nine months lead time. Yeah, you're, you're playing right into my discussion tomorrow. I'm going to be on the panel tomorrow at c. sun Brill. Reminded me because I am definitely and remind us again, what time is it? Livestream it's three o'clock and they are not live streaming it, but they're working on clearing the livestream for next year. Some of the panelists are concerned about sharing, but you know, we have a podcast, so I share every week. Used to putting my stuff out there. Well, absolutely. I mean, you know, we have no cloak. So what you're saying is like the marketing, what is this doing to the marketing? What is it doing to the space? I think my my biggest takeaway was when you're tied to fifty two weeks a year for the theatrical releases and you're tied to prime time, you know, episodic television in, you know, on on three networks or a hundred networks, you're still tied to a finite space and time for placement. So now that now that Netflix in streaming services have taken off this, the shackles of time and space where all this exists in one bucket that anyone can go dive into and pull out whatever it is they want. Then the the lead times for this is just gonna get shorter, and I think it feel a month feels about right. You know, like shorter than that feels like they're springing stuff on you, and maybe you don't want to have a lot of, you know, a lot of stuff that's just sprung on you, but I did notice and maybe because I'm. Mm into maniac. I don't know if you looked anywhere online, but it felt like every page that I went to was showing me advertisement for maniac, whether is I am db has had the banner stuff that was all around and kind of like how they did with Jack Ryan a couple of weeks ago. Exactly. Yeah. So I think I think we're moving into a space where, yeah, we're going to get the trailer. It's going to be a month out and then the minute that something's available because it's because we always talk about how streaming such a low bar of entry, but because it's always going to be there, they need to put extra emphasis that you can get this right now like you need to go right now and get this because everybody else is going to be talking about it, and we're going to tell everybody about it and it's become gonna, be water cooler stuffs. You want to be caught up for your podcast or your water cooler next week and you don't wanna be behind. No. And that makes total sense with when you look at how things are being released in the timeframe they're being released. And when the episode. Roads are being released because people just want to talk about what they enjoy, what they wanna see, right, you know. And like you said that water cooler chat, like I wanna walk up, hey, what are you guys watching on Netflix? This is what I'm watching agency trailer. Yeah. I saw that the other night. It's dropping in three weeks. You know, like they don't wanna wait nine months because you're gonna lose your audience, right? Like I think, and I think that plays right into a streaming audience, right? So if you look at going to theater and it's something like a Star Wars, it's a franchise movie like we talked about earlier tonight. Yeah. Something like Star Wars. Your fans are there. You're not gonna lose them, you know. But when you look at a streaming audience and streaming show or streaming movies, people hear about it. They wanna watch it like yesterday, you know? Yeah. No, it's crazy. Yeah, they wanna watch it now like no one has the patience for anything. And one month is a long enough lead time to play it out on a. Platform like Netflix or Amazon prime or something. And once it gets played out, like if it's longer than a month, like people are going to start dropping off and they're gonna forget about you. And I think that's what happens with like blogs and like photography things on on Instagram, and even our podcast, right, if we're not consistent, and if a content provider in a creator isn't consistent weaken week out day in day out sometimes like it could be days in people forget about you. And I think that's where like these spaces are getting to their dumping millions of dollars into the production, and they wanna get the most viewers possible as quickly as possible. So let's let him know a couple of weeks ahead of time and bam, drop it on them and they're right in the in those audiences right there, you know? Yeah, it's it is. I think that is, I think. The pre air. The coming soon is is more of a passe thing. We're not the plan anymore. They just need to know, is it available if it's available? Great, then we'll go and will seek it out or we'll go and we'll look for it or click here and then get straight to it, you know? Yeah. So I don't know, chilling adventures of Sabrina. You're going to watch. I'm a huge Riverdale fan, so I will definitely watching this. I don't know. I mean, I might I'll show Clarisa. Here's a, here's a funniest side silver sitting there, and I'm sitting in the room, you know, at the computer by myself and I figure I'm gonna go scroll through all the trailers. Ted sends me for the week because as I mentioned before, like Ted, like sets up everything we do and I'm watching closely walks up. She goes, you got boys behind you. They're watching, you know. Again, three years old and five years old right? Look behind and they're like mesmerized. Like I mean, like butter Cup on their eyes are like buttons. I mean they're huge. Like what in the world. So I turn it off. You guys don't to be watching this because like they snuck up on me from behind. Yeah, and but yeah, I mean, it's one of those things were like the Colt and like satanic Kenneth things kind of scoff at little bit right because like you know, I can do zombies and I can do like people running after me and my dreams trying to like hack me two pieces and stuff, you know, like slasher type stuff and like I'm okay with that. But like when you bring in like goad heads in like weird, like satanic ritual stuff like, yeah, I'm not gonna sleep. Easy that. And I don't know what the differences because like someone's chasing you to kill you like that doesn't bother me. I can sleep through that, you know? Yeah. But like so going back to the first season of true detective with the satanic kind of tattoos that the lien on the dead body and all that state, right. It got a little bit creepy, but like I think they staved it off enough to not like offend the audience. You know, where do you fall? Serial killers. I never seen killers. No. I mean, I mean, just in general as genre. Oh. I thought that was like a new show. New show Syra killers. It probably is coming to Hulu, right? Probably is somewhere. No. I mean, like if it's something, you know, I don't have a problem with it. You know, we were already covering or like we've watched Dexter, you know, and x. tres like the serial killer who kill serial killers, you know, and the serial killer with a heart of gold way to put. I like that. No. And we've watched sense of the lambs and stuff in like you have a crazy serial killer wearing like skin fitter. Something of these women, buffalo Bill come off flow Bill, right? I mean, that's the doesn't really bother me because like, I don't know, maybe because I watched the news sometimes you know, and like that's just on the news. But like if if it were like a serial killer who engaged in serial killer crimes through satanic rituals. That would freak me out or if somebody took like zombie movie and made zombies through a satanic ritual and not because of his ambi- virus like that would freak me out, you know? So like suspicious or something that sounds familiar, what is it? We did that movie. It's the movie with the crazy dancing and kind of satanic dancing. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. You're right. That's creepy. Yeah, it's like France. It's like Pariser. Yeah, no, that one was creepy. You know, like, yeah, that's stuff like I don't get into like that. Like mine f stuff. I mean, I don't Lissette but like. Yes, spirit with with the big side, the big hook, the hook trembling on the desk that creeps me out, man. I can't handle that stuff. You know, you could FREDDY Krueger stuff like that. You know, like that doesn't bother me at all. You know, nightmare elm street and stuff. Well, that's not that's not real right. I mean, there's no Allah to that. Exactly. It's like some guy in some burn gayness wetter you know, whatever. But like when you bring in like that, like that, like mind, like, you know, I don't know, just like creepy. Like, say, Tannock stuff like, oh, manages. Get the spine quivers anyway, man. What do you say? We wrap it up and I saw you take a last will of the beer. How did finish it finished? Nice. It was smooth all the way through. Like I said, this is this is like a great baseline beer, the the lightest beer I can enjoy. Right? So no weapon flavor. All right. I'm still sipping on mine like thirty two aunts that was a lot of beer to suck down at nine and nine and a quarter percent. Yeah, I'm on my way to be shipwrecked. I mean, I'm like, I'm looking at you on the computer screen and like it's just keep spinning around. But like my notes are hard to focus on, but hey, why not? It's Friday night. Yeah, and so you're going to tomorrow night, we're going. We're going to. So right after my panel discussion about the future of marketing in the media space, we're going to go over to the dodgers Padres game. All right. Ted man. Hey, I two good time tonight. Man, we've probably went way longer than we normally. Right. Have a great night. Yeah, you too. Man. We'll talk to you later. All right, bye. Bye. Next week join Jim in Ted, as they did saw them another Hollywood bomb or marketing masterpiece, ruined the holy trinity. Podcasting, subscribe Reich, share.

Welcome to you we we love you here We feel like we haven't seen in a hallmark movie in a while, which is really bummed out. We're GONNA get to that in just a little bit. But I tell us a little bit about your south everybody from what I gathered and everybody That's an actor wasn't at some point at some point at some point they were not and so bring us back to when you were not in how you. kind of figured out that maybe you want to eventually. well, I actually kind of knew I wanted to be an actor quite early on I. I was an artsy Fartsy kid. So I you know loved my dance classes and my art classes in my whatever school player recital or musical was happening I was in it. and. And I think at some point when I was a young teen I told my mom like I'm getting old I got an agent. GotTa get in normal teenagers say to their mind like most young teens. That's right. She thankfully obliged me. And I did get an agent. I. Think was. The first time a professional acting agent and then I got my first role of thirteen and then And then the rest is history. Wow. Did you grew up in Canada? Correct? I did I grew up in Toronto Okay and there are a lot of gigs for just did you have a lot of training at twelve thirteen years old? They're a lot of gigs out there for thirteen year old kids in Canada. Yeah I mean there's cans on TV, right So you just. So it wasn't like just a family trait like, Hey, this is what I WANNA do thirteen. It's time GonNa be on, TV. Yeah. It was a pioneer, my family. For. Sure. Do you consider yourself a child star? Well it's hard to say I feel like I mean. Premature fourteen year old on. TV Like I I. I don't feel like I. Ever grew up like a child star per se because I still went to school and I still didn't have a strangely Sheltered set life or anything or you weren't. You weren't taking classes from a tutor all year while you're acting nonstop you are still going traditional I watched the documentary though about the kid from e and he went to normal school too and they called him et and he was bullied and it was very sad and I just feel like if I was in the T. People would I would think that people would love me. But he said he was buoyed as again where you both for being on TV is that a thing? I mean people I was on a nickelodeon show called an Moore's. And some people with the L. Lake. It what into a lion? Yeah Man. How did you survive? How did you survive that Brian? How did you get to where you are now with that kind of bullying? We class president and so haughty on. There you go. Did you really were you class? Wow. What was your? What was your campaign slogan? Well, we can't we campaign is. Me and my best friend and we paid as. Charlie's angels, but there was two of us into the thirty just always nowhere to be found really like. Eating her to do the work. was slacking off and so that was sort of our that was our campaign. Did you. You could have made the third angel whatever the Mascot of the? What was your school mascot? We were called the least side Lancers. So she. been like a Lancer. We were brand we do have saved by the bell podcast. I know it's excited. We Watch reviewing episode you should come review an episode with us how. Do, we watch an episode every week, and we just dig in and talk about it and how what we thought of an. After school like every, you know in middle school I would go a- come home I. Would you know toast a Bagel or whatever may after school snack was and I would watch there were three shows I would watch. Do you remember it was? Save the planet with cartoons the environment. Captain Planet. Planning A. Captain Planet Fil House and saved by the Battle House by the bill we were just talking about like Mark Posture talked about how it took him years like he was a perfectionist took him years to get over the stuff that he did on say by the bell because that was his entire life. He never was actually taught how to act. He just was thrown into the fire. Yeah. Yeah. Just thrown into the fire and just had to figure it out on his own like did you go to any sort of acting school or was it just kind of a hey I started thirteen I learned by make mistakes. That's part of it. Yeah. I definitely learned. onset a lot I do remember. I. Wish I I wish I could remember her name. My mom had taken me to she was like. She smoked a lot and was in the West End of Toronto in this department. But sounded like she was from New Yorker and I remember going to her apartment and working on monologues, and she would sort of give me pointers but I just remember after having my acting lesson like just reeking smoke. I think her name was kitty or something. Sounds like kidding that sounds like kitty of I've ever heard of Kitty for sure on me everything I know what is kitty is there is there a particularly bad audition you can remember from your childhood just terrible like you look back and just cringe thinking about. I do I do have one of those? I was auditioning for a is an MTV show I'm not going to remember exactly what it was, but it was it was a director session. So it was the casting director, the producers and the director. On I was to play a supporting role of like the girlfriend, but she gets really jealous and angry because the lead starts being interested in some other girl newslink. Think the judge is like I want you to I want you to go for it like I. Want you to get really mad and You know like pick up the chair and throw it. You know thinking. This is my this is my chances shots. Into this character. So. Take too. I picked up that chair and I threw it and. Put it dense like on actual whole animal. Four Finish the take but then I stopped and then they're like just all staring at me and not there's like light and actually think you'd pick up the charities. I'm very good at. You got. A, note From director and you took. Your, that's directors fault. If you don't want me to do that, you shouldn't say but didn't didn't book. The part is what you're saying did not book it and what's worse is about a month or two later when I went to the same casting office to audition for different role the hallways style. Uh. Still there to this domain. That's So when did you you? If you're wikipedia and I'm David Birthdays correct you and I are about the same age Brooke Alentejo that is I'm twenty, five We. Win, did. You realize that I'm GONNA be able to take this and not just. have. A job as a high school kid but I'm GonNa make it my my livelihood. Was it never never question. You just knew that that was going to be. I mean it was it was a question because I actually So. I took like a year off after high school. I. Applied for a bunch. University programs I was interested in one was radio and television which would have been in the same area line of work on with a higher. Film. Another one was communications so more in the way of journalism, and then another one was maybe doing a. On the way to becoming a lawyer which my sister dead I, just play lawyers on TV now. I got into all the programs and I was like I'm going to take a year off and then I'm. Go to Hollywood and then I did and then I just never came back have it. I love that. So before before, you're even eighteen years old, you're in three fairly major TV productions that are all horror series. Goosebumps are you afraid of the dark tales from the crypt keeper? That's half of your filmography? What what were you like? Were you just like hey, is. Is there something attract attractive about being in horror or those the rolls the kept casting you? FIZZER definitely just. Dark in goosebumps in Canada one shot in Montreal on the other shot in Toronto. Those are sort of like if you go back on the roster of in those television programs, it's it was sort of like a rite of passage for any young young actor in Canada so. Ryan Gosling was on. Are you free to Darken? Who I mean, you would see a bunch of people that are. Who Else I'd have to look and see you'd there'd be a lot of very familiar names when they were like fifteen on the shows wild. What goosebumps episode were you on? What was it? What was the name shocker on shock street it was. A shocker shock street I loved goosebumps and my brother Hey mark We like to do this thing he growing up at least he could name. Goosebumps Book and order if you just you just say thirty six mark, he would occasionally just randomly on the show we'll say Mark fifty-six like he'll get back two months later so When shocker and Shack Street is I, don't know but I, bet it. Does. Mark knows so. I. WanNa. Go back to this child star thing because I do I do find it interesting whenever I think of child actors I do think of Macaulay Culkin and just his journey and So one how many drugs have you been on? That's a joke but was there a pressure as as a kid to once you start booking things I was there's pressure as a kid to keep doing it or did you have that freedom at least in your house to take it or leave it to be a kid not be a kid? -solutely. Yeah. No. My my mom is like the least stage mommy of all moms she she would be like, okay. I'm going off to work. Let's appoint somebody on is your Guardian have fun. Yeah. So my mom Gimme real free range, she also could trust me I. I was a pretty. Good Kid. Was it hard to convince her to let you start working or was it pretty easy? I. Think. You know she'd seen how much I lit up on stage and I guess she is a story where because I asked her like Palm, how'd you know she's like well, honey you're in these plays and you're like the kid in the second row you weren't even in a big role and then all the parents would come up to me and say, wow, your daughter just was great. So I kind of stole the limelight from people that were actually starring shows. Is there a particular play from when you were in elementary school that stands out as you really doing it like you played when? I was one of the eighteen daughters in pirates of penzance. So maybe That's where it was the buzz after pirates of penzance was just really. For. Sure. Is. What, how did the money work house like when you get when you're a kid I've always wanted to know how we're getting a new like you get. You make money as it thirteen fourteen year old playing. You know we asked her or anything we can't ask you about and she just she didn't say the money because she would assume touch. We're getting to know how much money have you. Want to know how much you got paid but like I clearly, it's going to go to your mom or you. Entrust accounts. Trust accounts. Yeah and You know that that money was great because it it basically finance might being able to start a career in the states. And I couldn't work on while I. Guess It could have gotten a job under the table, but it meant that when I moved to Hollywood, I was able to sort of. Live off my earnings and not worry about getting a waitressing job or anything like that because you twenty six episodes of animals so that by itself is GonNa help you a lot royalty. Wise. So that's fantastic. Were you. You weren't able to touch it until. I know. My mom provided for me. So it's not like I mean the money just Just kind of sitting there and sometimes use it like, oh, I want a new wardrobe for school bombs like go at it, go to the gap and have fun I. Love It. Just sounds a little free-wheelers. He's just like. Does. She want to manage the podcast? Sounds sounds budget wise I'm I'm on China let him convince him to let's by arcade game and it's like, no, we can't. But I'M GONNA ask your mom over said. Britain Evans mom she. S She said Go. Brooke you get to Hollywood what was the first big like that? You didn't get the first thing that you got to audition. ooh, that we would have. We would have heard of that. Maybe really broke your heart or you're just like man I know this is going to be a big deal when it happens and you didn't get and you're going to name names. Guys are so many. ME. More. Than One then I, don't care. Well Okay Gilmour girls. Oh Wow. Oh, br brands huge gilmore girls. Fan We. Were GonNA. Do you auditioned rory? Yeah Wow. How did you feel good about? I know I get. And broke needs to be on the show permanently she just needs to be in the movies with us and everything you know what they didn't do a favorite because Roy is the worst I. think Everybody who watches Gilmore Girls Agrees Rory she starts out great and she just becomes the worst when you when you're reading the rory, the script for a ninety opinions right now on Roy and you want to defend her on an honestly I I I I don't know the trajectory of worry over all the seasons. I. Mean. I have watched the show but probably not to the extent that you have I would say it's like it's like this. The starts here goes down and then backboard towards CNN's back, and then the year in the life it's should will. Never seen an episode of Gilmore Girls. But I, know it's a big deal and when you're reading the scripts, that's Sherman Palladino she did the riding has a very distinct rats. Speak as fast as I needed to. Probably, if I had been in the show, the episodes would've been like ten minutes. That's great. Any other ones? Gilmore Girls Club you're GONNA be able to top gilmore girls. I mean guys are really are so many. That's just the nature being an actor. Knows in yeses but is there one that you felt like you felt really good about it and maybe you got far along in the process and then and then it just didn't work out because that's also the nature. Yeah I mean I auditioned to. Around Com with Meryl Streep Whoa, their daughter, and I didn't get all the way as far as having a chemistry read with John Krasinski, which was Super Rad, and then also chemistry read A. With another actress in the movie. And I met the director and then they just they went with somebody else. We you know what's crazy is actress have such extent like nobody like you're not you're you're over it's like we had actor on who almost got the role that Paul Dano got in. There will be blood with Paul Thomas Anderson. Tyler. Hines who's also from Canada and he he you'd think that he would just carry that around like a weight and he's just like, yeah whatever I didn't get it like it was tough. I didn't watch the movie because I really wanted to roll but whatever it's crazy how once you're in that business you just know what's the nature of the business you're going to get some of them. Yeah I mean sometimes when there I'd really geared myself up for something and you know sometimes you do that, what if like what will life be like when I get this role? And so if you key into that too much than the the the drop off the emotional drop off can be a little steeper. But you know sometimes I'll allow myself a good day to just. I I am known in my. Life friend and family circles for being pretty good at. Moving on I gotcha. What was the first big break when you got to? Hollywood was the first thing you booked when he got Hollywood My very first role was actually on a short-lived Fox series starring Olivia Wilde Color Skin. It was a promo and Juliet story about the daughter of a porn magnet and the son of the district attorney. Wow. I played Olivia Wells best friends have Olivia Wilde at a restaurant in New York City wants. Story brain that's about as close as that that has ever had. On. The first question is there and you don't have to name names this time but has there ever been something where you booked it and you're doing it and you're like boy I wish I didn't fast. Know No. Seriously now because I'm grateful for every job. Say Nice say really good safe. Brooke. You've been on A. Three, there's more but three very long running American procedural rules. No I'm sorry if we count small because we have to that's that showed was on forever without a trace smallville supernatural. CSI. All of those were on the air for over a decade that they're grey's anatomy. That's been on on. Which one of those is the most memorable experience for you? Oh. That's a good wine. I mean grey's anatomy. It was really great because I was a super fan of the show and so when I got to work on it, I had maybe a little mini crush on steamy. When I I saw him at a restaurant after. We'd film The show I was with Michael, and I was like Oh steaming and He came up to our table to say. Hey, we just had a view into it's basically when the cast and crew will watch an episode before it airs during lunch as they're filming another episode and. He just wanted to say, Oh, turn out really well, and there was like sort of a comedic aspect to the episode that tract and they were all happy with it. So we just let me know I was like Oh great, and I was just Mooney I for the rest of. Walking to the car and was just. Ending at the driver's seat just waiting for Michael the. Let me he's like. I, drove. That's Patrick. Dempsey. Right. MIC Steamy. That's dreamy. Is Eric. I've never seen the treating remember his name Oh. Good. So lasting. Sure. We all know Michael. Yeah, Michael can't forget Michael Stone Cold. What's you've played just so many shows many different characters. Is there one that comes to mind as your favorite character? Maybe not your favorite performance or the favourite show you don't whatever. But the favorite character that you've ever had a chance to play and that that you really enjoyed. I mean I had a ball playing. A character on there was this Hbo Canada Series Called Call Me Fitz. With Jason Priestley MOCHA. Donald Artists started this morally bankrupt car salesman used car salesman although I kind of feel like the morally bankrupt in front of US cross salesman. You're saying a lot of the words that are the same. And I played the secretary there he's just sort of pining after her him. We come to find out that she is actually a run springer a while which which was like a season three season to reveal that I didn't. You know we didn't know creating the character, but then everything clicked into place and like Oh, that makes so much more sense now but she you know her heart outer sleeve and was really. I don't know I just had a soft spot for her. Her name was Sonya which one of these. You're so many different proceed like Chicago all of these shows which one of these procedural rules runs the most like a well oiled machine like they all have to they all are just clicking, but which one of them were, you just shocked at the efficiency with which they moved and their purpose and pace. I mean I would say I was pretty. They had a doubt I mean I think it was when I was on the show they were into seasons thirteen. And I mean. I my Dad, I was Ted Danson's daughter show. Notes is doing just Ted Danson a few TV shows. Dream. So I mean that was that was definitely well machine and bring it back to save by the bell. You know who is a psychotic? And his twin stocking our family on CSI was Mark Posture Detroit. Yes I remember those episodes like I see us. I was the only procedural that I stuck with pretty much to the end. I didn't quite get to the end after a while. I was like, okay, I gotTA stop. But I remember those the remember watching the show and Ted Danson was on I remember you on the show I remember all of that because it was a job Christmas Laurence Fishburne, and then Ted Danson was like the. Lead of the show, so Paul Gosford did play a killer on the show which is wild to me. More evil twin. Yes. That's right and that just shows how good of an actor he has. No he would never kill. He would never not Martin Not Zach Nod Zach. Zach more. Let's talk a little bit about homework because I think it's your it's so interesting. We'll get to like how how that religion star but I think it's interesting. So many of the the actresses and these movies are you know they? They use the same ones we have these you know CCB and lacey that are in every year and you do here and there and you you've you're kind of working around it. How do you want how'd you get up with homework but to how do you kind of you hallmark in the grand scheme of of kind of what you do because it almost seems like I think of it as as dessert like you're doing these other things but then you're doing homework and these nice sweet little. Sprinkles on top of. The acting roles, Sunday, exactly right. Yeah. Well, my very first job with hallmark was. Called come dance at my. Wedding. Okay. Yeah. Why don't you I? Don't you? And I played the owner of a dance studio that was left to me. And I come back. No, I'm where I am. Stripe John Insider plays my father. He comes back into the small town to. A part of the studio was left to him. And so. anyways, this is really bad synopsis he comes back sounds Great and. About to get married and I'm trying to figure out whether I WANNA, keep the studio going move on to new things and he basically committed commences me to keep the studio. Dance Studio. And then we dance at my wedding. So that was. Correct that was own nine Do you not do another one till twenty fifteen does that sound right? Your at strength will still delivered. Okay, yeah. So that was twenty. Yeah. That was twenty fifteen. Yeah. So Twenty fifteen, then you're on the twelfth of Christmas and then you worked with CCB. Very. Exciting as a full house fan you get to but that was an interesting one because you played not the leading Gal you played You know a this amazing cop which was our favorite part of the move. was was was that relationship for sure so He loves he. Loves see see now I know that she's got this to. You know short name CCB you. No one's ever is that just us is it just us I called her CCB manner I'm not sure this is the first time I've heard it we can have it. Be on a regular slow to now. Did you did you take that not as a leading role just because it was? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, as a full House Fan, you have to. You can't not. There's no question I mean imagine getting pitched as as a full house for and I would take the shop to It's not the leading role, but it is a time traveling movie although city Jay Tanner. I mean who's not taking that come on a second yeah. How was it like working with the? It was a dream. Everything you would expect it to be. His. Kind and thoughtful and prepared and. Totally invested in the story and her character and a professional and cares about who she works with and is just one of these one of these days I'm GonNa get somebody to say something bad about. And I'm going to quit quit as I. Get it done. I'M GONNA quit. So you you've got, we're just GonNa let that linger okay. We have a very interesting relationship with. Word. She will her. No No. That's part of the interesting relationship Brooke. Number one you wanNA patterns right now she just patron. Texter right now be just we're not going to ask you this is my interview you can watch. Just watch it and enjoy it what is. Working on a hallmark movie versus working on the the hundred twelve TV shows that you've been on. So. Many actors say, Hey, we're we're doing this got one hundred pages. We got all these locations. We got fifteen days like you're a td pro like you've been doing like what you do they put out forty five minutes to an hour long show every week and you finish it in a week. So what's more difficult doing in a show like CSI and making sure it's all done well or doing doing a movie like a like a hallmark movie where lead. Well. To be clear I've never done it for forty five straight weeks CSI episode kind of pop in as a guest star I wish I could do it for forty five straight weeks but like you were on several shows for like a ton of episodes. Like breakout kings, you're on twenty seven breakout kings ten in a row, ten episodes in a row that grueling or having to do get it right the first time fifteen days on homework. Here's the thing I've done. I've done movies to in twelve days, and that's also I think that's even harder I So. Isn't grueling. Yeah. I mean there's a lot of dialogue but I I've never. I've never found it overwhelming. But I think it's probably because of I'm used to the fast pace of television. Do you appreciate getting to build a character on TV more? You appreciate the complete arc of a character in a hallmark movie. I love a complete arc. I mean. It's yeah. I mean there's a lot about procedural TV where I mean unless it's a drama you've a bit more leeway as the guests are characters drawn TV are sort of more exciting. Sometimes, you almost get your full arc within an episode and it's the leads of the show this sort of. Remain the same or there are drawn out over a season or two So you know when you're a guest star in a long running show that almost is it's own arc is well Yup. But Yeah I love creating a character from beginning to end. The challenge of that I like making sure that you you know. You don't have to show the whole character in every scene. So it's it's nice to figure out which points during the story you get your reveals her aspects, of character. Row. Remind us because it's been almost two years now in two hundred movies later Jingle around the Clark does your last hallmark one and you and Michael were involved with the creative process right? Did you you? Yes we created a treatment for the story that we sold to hallmark and then it it. Filled it out into a script in that became jingle round the clock they're going in like a different direction. Now, homework is and being more inclusive and having movies that don't follow the exact same formula but jingle around the clock for two thousand eighteen stood out like I. Having watched. Her are still remember that movie because it's about a group of five friends. There's a lot more going on than just a standard beats of a hallmark movie how reticent was Hallmark To Take That on like how much pushback did you get to have something that was a little bit closer to how I met your mother than it was a standard homework movie you know based on our treatment edition of the group was actually a wonderful creative license that whenever heap screenwriter Zack took. So he added that element which was such a beautiful. I mean there were supporting characters in we had a best friend in our treatment, but he sort of added this. Group friend group in the final. Of around the clock. And I remember when I when I read it the first time it was this really interesting fresh take on on how to celebrate Christmas. It was more groups focused for versus family focused because L. needed to create her own family. And, I loved it. I thought it was a really great extension of of the seat of story that we had provided. And I think that if we can have more stories like that that that are new iterations on of the same theme that it will be great. Yeah is it is this something that you want to do more of maybe maybe you have outside of homework but doing more of the creative stuff behind the scenes as something you're really enjoying wanted to. I love it I do love creating story. I was always like an imaginative kid. Making up stories in my head. So this feels like really natural extension, and in the time that we've talked I've actually directed my first movie. Wow. How was that? It was. One of the hardest things I've ever done in the most rewarding it was fantastic and I can't wait to do it again. What did you direct? Well, very often genre for hallmark it. Actually, the movies will be premiering September twentieth on lifetime. And it's in the thriller Genre Nice and Are you ready for it? You Guys I don't know if you're ready I'm ready I'm sitting down I'm ready. Okay. I'm going to say one of those like trailer me voices. Downs better that way. Okay, ready it with. Her deadly sugar daddy her deadly sugar. Daddy is the name of this movie and you it's Brooke-nevin joint you directed. Navin, original. The movie but I directed at you Oh did you star in it as well or are you just directing now would have been too many plates to spend for sure. Wow. So people that do that direct an act can you? Can you tell them that because that's a that's a whole lot of stuff i. mean I think you'd have to have a really great support system in terms of a creative producer DP who you know the visions definitely shared and You'd have to have enough time to be able to play back if you needed or wanted to We certainly I mean when I talk about doing a movie in twelve days. That's a thriller. That's a ninety minute movie that we shoot in twelve days. So that you three days less than a hallmark shoe. while. So what was the process like getting like transitioning into directing like how did you find that opportunity? Did you go out where you out searching for asking how you worked with lifetime before? I had to work with lifetime. I. This was born out of a relationship I have with a production company cartel entertainment and I worked with them years ago on a movie called the wrong mother. The title I love it. I. Love It. And I did. A movie with them last summer And expressed to one of the producers how I it started to shadow on some shows. So. I tried on reforms good trouble and He said we'll want you shadow or next movie and will we'll see how go shadowed two of their thrillers. And then they gave me my first movie which is. About it like the amount of trust. To give a first time director a ninety minute movie. was forever be grateful to that producer. So Denise, it was twelve days. Yeah. How many of those days were you just like I guess I'll figure it like what what day were you like? Okay. I got it I can I can do this? To be really prepared before we started, there is no room for error. I mean I felt we had a really good start. I. Think by. Day three I was feeling like okay. This is doing well may actress trust me? We're getting our days you know so I gotta ask you this there. So many actors that we have on here who work with hallmark and they say something to the effect of look when you're shooting a hallmark movie, you get one take sometimes you get to takes you can't sit there and go can I have another one that we're moving we got all these locations being on the other side of that knowing that and then being the director how many times were you like? That's GonNa have to be good enough like how many times on us where you are like man that's great. You were like, well, bull, it's a three of ten, but we've got a data make. Every in every movie, there are a couple of scenes that are like the anchor scenes of the movie and third a pivot point emotionally or plot point this really. Important and you have to choose your battles. So I definitely gave priority to those scenes and I am a little bit of a perfectionist and I had my first day. DB Like Brooke gotTa Move On. We're GONNA, move on looking at the clock and I WanNa make sure that I am honoring my actress performances and getting the best out of them. So definitely, I want to be like it's just one more in running and given not come back out. That being said I'm very happy with the scenes that I felt you needed to get what we needed to get, and then there are a couple of like it'll work out. makes sense seeing an actor I imagine you've worked with some really great directors and some directors that are not as great. and. So what what would you say makes a good director and who are some directors that you've worked with that you kind of are trying to maybe model you're directing style after Oh, that's a great question Detractors that I loved working with the most normally were very calm on said but also, very inclusive. Happy. To be there. So that was definitely something that I try to bring in to. Bring, into the workspaces had that energy onset. I've loved collaborative an inclusive directors that that the know that the actors have spent the most time without one particular character and value. That collaboration. So I try to be very collaborative. I think that's the most exciting part filmmaking anyways. And then. You know there are some amazing directors like Gavin Hood did the pilot for breakout kings? He's award-winning on Oscar award-winning director in. His level of. Trust in performance sometimes when somebody trusts you with performance in pushes you. You. You can get a lot of really interesting subtle performances with that amount of trust and it's really encouraging to have that as an actor on the other side of the Lens Yeah, you're you're. Oliver wanted to I I. Would I would gander that I as a hallmark actress I probably worked with run Oliver I, but it wasn't on a homework project really yeah he I worked with him on for. Fifteen a he did. I don't know maybe four or five episode. And he was refund then to work with as I as we hear that he is makes it just such a show? You do a Ronaldo pictures in the nineties when he would bring his boombox to set and then when they were lighting we which he would just play like. Dance Music. Water Guy. He just is one of a kind. Yeah I want I wanNA know, and this is my this is probably overly nerdy, but I'm interested in doing doing a more. We'll just call it a thriller for the sake of John. Yeah. So directing thriller, How much of a thriller? is done in post versus. Stone Much Obviously. You have to set up your shots. I mean for one thing shooting nights a lot so that in itself is a thriller aspect. Is You WANNA have a lot of dark shadows with? You know. Sounds in and figures lurking in the dark has a very important part. So that is just in the the actual filming itself But I would say at the timing of the edited and sound design is a huge aspect of creating thriller moments. Have you have you a? Lot of movie or TV show that you've not had a chance to performance that you would really like to. You know. I. I've done some sitcoms but I never had a live audience when I found them. So in other, but it's filmed without a live audience. and. That would be really fun to do it in a live audience audience for sure. Your wikipedia page says that you speak French. Have you used that in any of your filmography? Have you had a role where you've you've spoken French? Oh, he now it's always been my dream to be like play like the American or Canadian girl French movie. and. So even if my French is not very good, they'd be like all of a like. I would love to to film a movie in France and have to speak French that would be so added to the bucket list maybe direct that there you go. Just. Before we get to the rapid fire. You know we didn't get a Brooke-nevin Christmas movie last year, which said made our hearts. Sad. Yeah. twenty twenty is it. What do you think looking any better well? If hallmark and Mexican to come to a hallmark movie in the next month then maybe. So you're saying right now. Let's just keep our doors open opportunities open Gotcha. But you have a month window is what you're saying. Yeah or two months I mean they turned we all know they can turn them around pretty. Put I didn't know if you had something after a month at you like. You're saying if it happens, it's on at this point also. We like to hear that but but also you've strike me as someone that has such an ECLECTIC filmography. That hallmark is just a a little part of it like you don't you know hallmark is not the bread and butter of your acting career like some people are hallmark veterans, sprinkles. That's what we were saying. You just kind of. Left for the love the sprinkle. Wrinkles I. One of those people that eats ice cream four sprinkles. That's to me my kids my kids love Gimme, GimMe Gimme the sprinkles. We're GONNA go to the rapid fire where we each Gadhafi three questions and you you have to answer them. It's really more about the honesty. The brevity. How fast SAM or how honest own What's most important? Enjoy Dan. What's. The. Best meal in. TORONTO. I don't live there anymore. So it's hard to say, but we'll do best in Los Angeles or Montreal or wherever you listen meals Los Angeles Hollywood. Grassy Esma dre and anything and things on their menu. The first time we've heard that is that a vegetarian plus or you're a vegetarian I'm not but I I enjoy a good beginner vegetarian dish. I gotta be honest if you're not a vegetarian and of that place is still on the top go because I'm not a vegetarian. But if you're not a vegetarian and saying Grassi as module is the place because you're not the first person that's given that answer on the show, which is crazy. Yeah. We're getting close to fall I. Mean I think we're we're it's after Labor Day. And so I'll ask you a Halloween question. What was would thinking back to Halloween what was your favorite? Favorite costume you've ever had. TAP DANCING GECKO. Wow. We need some more information is there are their pictures? Yeah I mean, there's photo evidence there might even be a video somewhere I mean. Anytime you can do a Meta costume that has like a costume. The costume is my favorite. So within just a Gecko was a Gecko with a Sparkley Vegeta-. Kane. This is how old are you at this time? I mean an adult cell you're an adult when this happened. So you said like somebody's somebody's inch Gecko but I'm workshop in this and it just works better to me if the backstory is like a Gregory hines kind of thing like. TAP dancing. Fantastic is it. So it's like the it's like the GEICO, Geico. But like after he's done shooting GonNa go go tap. That's right. You got. We need pictures saving glover face. Yeah. Fantastic. The best movie you've ever seen in the theater. With Whatever Tom Cruise's last. Was Top gun. You know one where he does his own Heloc oil mission impossible fallout. Crazy. Yeah. He jumped from almost outer. Space Yeah. He's nuts, but it was amazing to see in the theater. There's no doubt about. It so I just got back from vacation. You know on vacation you sometimes you watch stuff that you normally wouldn't just because of time I watched. Show on Netflix where they they. Sell houses in the Hamptons like really fancy houses and I imagine and if I lived in, Hollywood, I would try to go see houses that even if I couldn't afford just WanNa see him because there's so many beautiful houses be honest. Have you ever went and toward a house that you had no interest in buying you just wanted to see. What seems like a normal Hollywood. Normal high does everyone do that I mean I don't know if everyone does it I mean, I've done it. But I'm I'm also like one of those people where I get very curious about how people live like I'm driving down the street at night or taking my dog for a walk in people's living rooms are lit up and you can see inside their windows I love hearing. It's pupils. You're. Looking. Like seeing the TAB lows of life the Scott Weird. We I mean we can take that out, but we can take that post a few watching TV, the other night and my windows open and I swear there was a tap dancing gecko. Hey. Do. You ever feel like someone's watching you. Couldn't. Believe, close your blinds if you don't want to be. Closer mind. On you at that point. So Brooke what is the thing that Canadians have or do or make better than the United States? Is My thinking face. Good. Make or do I told you that? Canadians other Canadians that is an answer we have not. We've. We've had them look on the family feud board. A good. Answer. I love that. something. I had a really really good one. Oh boy and it was it was funny and thoughtful about. give get one more pain is not here and you can just ask one more while I think because it was so good. You want me to ask fourth quarter so much asking fourth question. These these. Young. Rapid Fire List Lord. Now I've got some go to's here's one of my go-to. What's the most expensive drink that you've ever consumed or purchase? So either someone bought it for you or you bought yourself and you drank it most expensive drink. I mean. Some of those. Like per glass I mean probably it was a bottle of wine. Okay well. How what kind of wine was it? You don't know. L.. Okay. Good wine. Hopefully, you forget how much truth that's true. That's true. I think the most the most expensive. Running rhetoric thousand bucks a so I don't know like I didn't know if you could top that or not, and then like Brennan Elliott told us that there was a two hundred dollars shot at Tequila he took while on vacation and his family.

Melissa Smith Healthy Joyful Living

"<music> the forking shirt okay. Hey melissa. How's it going good are you. I'm good thanks for thanks so much for joining joining me today. I appreciate you taking the time to record. I'm excited to be here awesome so tell everyone and me a little bit about you and what oh you do and where you're from just like a quick overview so i'm originally from the midwest but i recently relocated to las asparagus. Oh cool okay no fun. Yeah got health is my jam. I'm a holistic health coach. I work with women who have digestive issues who's i._b._s. Leaky got adrenal fatigue. <hes> generally irritable have some brain fog and just really low on energy and i help them restore their gut health and get their sassan energy for life back yeah. That's that's really awesome. Exa very good profession to be and i would think because everyone needs help with the everyone everyone has it seems. I don't have really stomach issues but i do. I told you before like acid reflux and stuff like that. I can get that sometimes sometimes and it is so uncomfortable and not fun and luckily i don't have any stomach issues so hopefully i never will but <hes>. I know that it can be really miserable. My brother has had a lot of stomach issues and anyways. It's not really because of what he eats because he eats really healthy. His was mostly caused from stress stress so anyways yeah. I know that a lot especially women can deal with that a lot so that's a that's awesome what you're doing for sure so so in your business. Are you doing like coaching or are you in like a multilevel marketing company at all all or is it. Just you on your own. I do coaching. Yes so right now. I am taking on one on private coaching clients. <hes> everything is really individualized ally against <hes> because no one person has the same yeah how we treat the i._b._s. Itself really has to be specific to who that person and <hes> i do intend to add in group coaching and i wanna start <hes> probably later this year. Do some workshops and get some retreat scheduled and things like that so that's all part of it for sure. That's really cool. So how long have you been in las vegas goose. Have you lived there for a while. <hes> i've been here for about a month. Oh okay. Where did you move there from minneapolis. Okay wow that's quite. That's quite a change in climate. I guess yeah it's it's a little warm here. Maybe not the best time to pick to come down here air but <hes> it's been great so far. I'm loving it. I'm enjoying it so okay well. That's that's really cool. I'm in texas so it's a bit more humid here but still really hot so yeah totally. That's why i never wear makeup in the day really and i go swimming a lot so it's so hot here but yeah you have to have to stay out of the heat as much as possible in this town or in this guy is eight so it's all about sunscreen and water yeah yeah for sure so <hes> like i was telling you a little bit before we're gonna talk mostly about like you and your personality what you like dislike and you know different things like that and i tell this on every episode but the good part is based is on the t._v. Show that good place starring ted danson and kristen bell and if you haven't watched the new shed because it's so funny you can watch the first season on netflix. They should really sponsor sponsor me at this point because i shout them out on every single episode but i think that the show is really really good. It's really funny and i think that gives you issues such a cool thing to like see what they say about the afterlife and stuff because it's about it's about like ted. Danson plays kind of his his name is michael so he plays like i would say the ark angel like in the bible but he he's the creator of the good place so it's just really cool and fun show definitely recommended but i base all of my questions off characters from that show so that's why i have you talked about yourself at first because eleanor more is kristen bell. She loves talking about herself like her. Favorite thing is herself and she really could care less about anyone else so the next the next set of questions is based on the character chidi who is a he's like he used to be <hes> ethics professor before he died and so and he has really hard time making a decision so on that note. Has there ever been a time where you were unable to decide on something important. Oh my gosh yes totally well. I'm sure you had to make a huge decision when you moved. So how long did that take you to choose where you wanted to move to. You know i actually i gave my sixty days notice and i really i didn't make a choice until about two weeks before doc. Oh wow the universe do the talking. Wow that's awesome so are you did you are. Are you married. Do you have any kids that came with you or i have a dog. Okay it's two and a half. She's a rescue pop. I totally believe and and rescue animals. Okay yeah me too. I have three dogs and two cats. I have a lot of animals but yes <hes> two. Two of the dogs are from the shelter and the cats are just like some someone was like. I have a bunch of cats here. Take one so but but the one chihuahua the diva dog. I like to call her she she <hes>. I paid one hundred dollars for her probably from like a backyard breeder when i couldn't the shelter wouldn't let me adopt opt because i didn't have. I didn't pay like pet insurance so yeah. It's crazy yeah but then after that they dropped that rule and so then i got two dogs from there there you go so yeah so anyways <hes> is there. Can you think of another specific time where it's been hard hard to design. Decide something like in your business. Yeah i think the point where i knew ooh that's because i was in corporate america for in the medical device healthcare industry for almost twenty years okay and i think it was really knowing i wanna that cycle had come to an end and will be willing to accept that and knowing that my true purpose my true passion was helping women who have shoes news so it was just really embracing that and you know sometimes the calling comes to you in in different ways and being willing to accept that can sometimes be a little bit challenging yeah yeah for sure. That's that's probably like the that's kind of what i did is. I worked worked in corporate not for as long as you did but i did corporate cells and i kind of like i graduated about ten years ago from college and i it just kind of like jumped around to all different types of jobs and i did like retail and that was like ten years so retail and then i my last job was in corporate sells like business to business sales and i just i just didn't like it so that's whenever i decided to just go into business for myself so yeah. I totally understand like it's it's hard. It's hard whenever you have. I feel like when you start your own business us or you want to start your business. We all just have like that thing. That's just like let's just quit and let's do it. You know there's no like inbetween for people that ah entre preneurs. I think we have like all of those same. We all have kind of the same mindset in a lot of things you know so totally just like okay. We're done with this. This were jumping to this exactly but it can be a good in a bad thing because if you're like me. It doesn't take me long to make a decision. I just have to regret it later the wrong one so i just i jump kind of too fast so i need to be more like chidi from the good places like i think through what i'm actually doing for just jumped through it all right so the next question. Let's see. I have a few different ones okay. Can you think of a time when you did something. You knew you could be considered ethically wrong but decided it was worth it. I mean i don't wanna get you into any trouble but worth it's i really think <hes> coming from the medical device industry and that spectrum you really do have to it's. It's very black and white. There's no gray so you have to be willing to if you know that it's wrong long you have to be willing to stand up and say no we can't do this and that can be very challenging and especially because of what i was doing and the people that i was working with you know i worked with physicians and nurses and c._e._o.'s and chairman of the board's towards and all and a lot of people in the c. suite arena and it really have to be willing to say and stand on your own shoe feeds and let them know that you know this is the way it needs to be done. We can't make a shortcut here yeah so i'm sure the backbone wrong and and and saying it even though it might ruffle some feathers you might not get the contract might not get the multi-million dollar deal. Whatever it is uh-huh is a stand on your own integrity no matter what yeah i'm sure that's really tough to especially in the medical field when so much money is involved and next dollar so yeah because ultimately for me it's about. Are we doing the right thing for for people. Are you going to help them. Is their life or is this going to cause more pain and agony for them. That's that's really the ultimate thing and the driving actor there. It's and that's a really big challenge because it is. It's all about the bottom line and it's all about r._o._i. Yeah it's that's how a a lot of businesses are but i feel like the medical especially. The medical field can be my mom. She works in the medical field. She's a therapist but she always wants to work with patients longer and there's a lot of times when the insurance will just cut her off so there's things like that to where it i mean it happens in so many so many different areas of the medical profession but i don't know it's really sad and the united states really needs to get their medical shit together. Healthcare industry in the united states is just yeah. It's really bad state and you. I wanna get political or it's okay. It's right now of where it's at. It's not gonna get any better anytime so yeah and i don't have the answers. I don't know what the answers are but <hes> just the political climate. That's going on right now. Oh and the situation that just is still unresolved out refugees and all of that is it just it's just really sad has the we can do better. We better yeah we can. We definitely can <hes> but yeah i don't. I don't mind <hes> political opinion or whatever i'm actually. I'm marrying a l._b._j. Shirt because it was the first from texas to be president so yeah so he might not have been the best like morally early but he was he was a pretty cool dude in my opinion so i know none of them have been perfect. Yeah yeah well he. He did pass civil rights law aw with people on his back not too so that was pretty cool okay so we're going to move on to the next question and dan the next questions based on if you ever watched the show you have to tell me what you think but the next section of questions is based on the character jason who's like doc he he gets to the good place and he it's like totally wrong. He's not supposed to be there just like eleanor the main character but when he first gets there he's uh he is like a monk so he or they think that he's a monk and so he has to be really quiet and he can't talk at all because he says he's taking a vow of silence when in actuality he's from like fort lauderdale florida and he was like really stupid. He ended up dying in in a in a safe because he thought he was going to steal the money out of it because he's really he's really dumb but it's really funny so okay so in that on that note it. Has there ever been a time when you wanted to speak up but you were unable to all like us. Yes all all the time when i was in my corporate career and doing all that that was when i was suffering the most with my own digestive issues news on my own anxiety and one of the things was nobody knew nobody knew and you know i traveled all the time. I'm three or four nights a week. Different cities off the united states and there were times when i was so sick. I should not have gone to work but i did it anyway. Yeah that's that's rough so yeah just calls from like stress and anxiety. Somebody was stress of of the environment. I mean i truly loved what i was doing. I was very good at it. A lot of it was stress and there's an emotional components as as as well. I mean if you've got all day. Justice stress going on plus. You've got anxiety because ninety nine percent of the people have i._b._s. Or any type of digestive issue you have anxiety because they're worried about what's going on and the next bathroom my stomach gonna explode kind of thing but there's an underlying emotional connection as well as to why you have so much anxiety and why your stomach is upset near are like that so it's really about getting to the root of the problem and that can be the really challenging thanks for people because they don't wanna talk about it because because it's all about getting really vulnerable and digging deep into what ever it is could it's usually some type of trauma that we're covering up in some way and for some people it comes out as anxiety comes out as depression that comes out with digestive issues or we go to the other side where there is some type of addiction <hes> masking all of that <hes> yeah that does make sense for sure all right so next question question is based on the character michael and he's the one that built the town of the good place so if you could build the perfect town what would you build build and why oh my gosh well i would have an organic markets have been here or like they love organic markets and like being outside. I just imagined all of you like being friends and like living on like a com- a hippie commune or something hippie communist i would do that and you know we have grasping vive and we'd have free range chicken and turkey on all of that good stops stops and we would definitely have to be next to water her <hes> so bigger on the beach so yeah. Maybe a little beach community <hes> yeah something something to that effect you know so you went dancing creativity energy yeah so what was your reason. I'm i'm just curious. What was your reason to move vegas since it's not by the water and i wouldn't imagine it's very imagine it has a lot of farmers markets. I mean maybe it does i. I don't know i was surprised at just the unlike this little area the island event. I only four of them. Okay good good so that's that's. That's what a an finding that there are some things that i do mess in one of his because i literally lived across the street from a lake in analyst that that is true but i i like it. I chose it and who knows how long i want to stay here. You know the big plays anywhere but it's easy in an out of the airport lure literally. There's so many flights all over the world doc direct flights so there that was one part of it. I mean really four and a half hours to the coast okay. That's not you know <hes> without dealing with the constant traffic of living you know on the west coast and also the cost of living is fairly comparable to the mid west. Okay that's interesting so it was pretty eighth parallel decision in some regards okay yeah my aunt used to to live in arizona and are in phoenix super far away but i never got to go while she lived there but my parents did did and they said it was just like so beautiful in like really clean and just the weather so different from texas because texas feels like you're walking into asana when you walk outside in the summertime but <hes> i don't know they said it was like a really pretty city. I've been to las vegas one time but it was like you know to do like the typical las vegas stuff so i'm sure that there's other parts of it. That aren't so touristy. That are actually cool so that like you could actually we live in and out people that actually live here. Don't go to the strip. Yeah yeah a reason to go down there yeah so and i don't live anywhere near there so okay but <hes> i do have to check myself my light in las vegas. I'm sure there's a lot of cool like music. If you like music and probably a lot of good comedy and stuff there yeah. I haven't really checked out a lot of things <unk>. Just stay local and now the neighborhood and everything but i am besides just the regular shows and access to that stuff. That's off the strip. <hes> there's there is a fairly good music art scene yeah. I haven't really dive into it. I'm sure there's like <hes> i'm good like improv comedy and stuff like that. That's pretty cheap to go to to like most most cities like that have like improv comedy comedy clubs and all that cool stuff in waco where i live. We don't have anything like that. So i go to like dole hot yeah but anyways well the last question i'm going to ask you and i love asking this. I'm not sure if you watch many t._v. Tv show so you can answer with the movie if he want but if you can magically teleport yourself to live in any t._v. or movie worlds where would you live. Oh my gosh are a lot about like where you live. I now i know <hes> oh since you like nick water farmers market. I'm trying to think of like somewhere good. You know i i'm big grey's anatomy fan okay cool. I've only watched the first season one of rosen college. I never watched it again but everyone loves it yes so i love that but i also love to e._r. If you wanna go back a little when i was in grad school cool are professor on thursday nights would make sure that we would get out just so we would have enough time to get home to watch the show so yeah yeah. I never watched e._r. Either my mom used to watch it but i think i was too young. Probably you might have been to the way they film that <hes> was a it was really the the stepping stone for oliver shows after that yeah you and and everything so yeah i i watched house. Yes i really liked house yeah. I like that old saying and i'm trying to think of doctor shows that i like scrubs is pretty good stresses funny. Yeah <hes> what else is there. I don't know i can't think of any right now but i did. I did really like house until it got weird and he started started dating that that doctor the main doctor then. I was like not into it anymore so i gave up on that one but i do like him along i wa. I think he's funny that guy that plays him ever out his name now but anyway here's something hugh laurie. That's it yes yes yeah. He's really funny and he's like 'cause he's british in real life so he's doesn't sound anything like how he does on that show. It's really crazy so he was also on fun fun fact on one hundred one dominations yeah like not the animated one of course the real one. I'll see driver with like the i just remember him. He was like a driver of all the puppies that were in the back till i kerala deville. He was like her little driver. I think anyways. I remember that all right. I'll ask i'll ask one osc one more so this the last question this question are based on janet and janet's and it's really cool because she can teleport herself like if they say hey janet she just like appears and she's like hi. I'm janet. She's like a robot so anyways. That's why i asked the teleporting to t._v. Show world question and then she also can like upgrade people like oh. Do you want this bam and she gives it to them. So if you could upgrade one thing about your life or anything in your life what would it be upgrade. I would definitely want like a gorgeous house right up in each okay. I upgrade. Yes you know i just thought of like the most gorgeous house on the beach on t._v. He is the show called grace and franky on netflix. Have you watched that yes right now at least a coup dro- now that i mentioned the show you really do what those glasses like. You look like like right now lisa kudrow you really do so. That's a big comment because i love her. She's he's on the newest season of grace and franky. She's so funny i i'm onto into. It isn't their house awesome. Isn't that where you wanna and live is totally yeah. They have like a perfect beach house so yeah. I love that show i love it because while obviously you know the two main stars are amazing. The really are that they get on. There is is fabulous yeah. The girl that plays the daughter her name's june diane raphael the blonde girl. She's a jane fonda daughter the oldest with the blonde hair yeah she i saw her last summer. <hes> she's married to a comedian named. Paul scheer was on the league and a bunch of other stuff but they were together at this t._v. Festival i went to and they like read all these scripts. That never got picked up so that was pretty fun but she's really she's really funny and she had all her friends. There too like there's like a she's on a podcast that i listen to all the time called. How did this get made and it's about it's about like movies at a really terrible like literally. How did this get made and it's like her her husband paul scheer and then this guy jason main soukous who's also on the good place another show but anyways that podcast is really good. If you like funny podcast okay okay so i do have one movie to this day. I do not know why got made it. It was the mexican with brad pitt and julia roberts. Oh i've never seen seen ever. I have never seen ever oh my gosh well. Maybe they cover it on. How did this get made. I'll have to look it up. I just i just listen to this <hes> the episode that they just did about <hes> sky captain in the world of tomorrow. Have you ever seen that movie. No it has angelina jolie in an and couple of other people. Oh it has gwyneth paltrow and jude law but it's really really bad and they it was really funny honey what they said about it. They're like how literally how did this movie ever ever get made like all of them that were reviewing it. They were like it took them like four the least amount of time it was like four hours the most amount of time they had like three days because they couldn't watch it all at once. They had to like housing using it. I've i've only walked one movie ever and it was at independent theatre someplace based on but literally it was matt's <hes> what's his name the other how matt damon damon yes literally. He's walking around in the desert for forty five minutes and i was like i don't know i can't do this but i gotta go only got up off. That's annoying. What do you know what movie it was. I have no idea i think casey act like was in it too literally walking around the desert and i was like i this the waist and forty five minutes of my life that i that's why i cannot go to the movie theater. I usually go see comedies with like people that like so. I know it'll be fun because because if i go to like a movie like that like thinking it's going to be good because i'd probably go see a movie with matt damon you know and if it you know if it sucks so then you're just like sitting there. I don't know that's why we just saw tag and it was just so funny like i have to say. Maybe that i know is going to be funny and as people in it that i like so that's my philosophy so anyway that's all my questions for you so just tell everyone everyone how they can how they can find you like your website and like social media and everything so i don't website.

I hope it's been longer than time between these actual podcast in case you're wondering Liverpool did not win the league I repeat Liverpool did not win the football League Saturday. It was we went to back as data watcher in between podcasts, and they want they want their game bought and falsely Manchester City. Demolished, their opponents four one meaning it was all relevance. Really? Yes. So they just go the Champions League final come against Tottenham, which will be on anyone who doesn't follow football's thing in what the hell as they got to do with a ghost podcast and you quite right. It's got borger all to do with it. So let's move on. So did say in the last podcast an hour ago that we had some lovely reviews. So I'm going to read some of them out because they're heart warming. A nice. So if you've took the time to send the review or an Email, I think it's only right. I read it out. You get a little bit of time. So the first is an Email from Holly, schon Holzer. Nice name Holly. She says Kev, the song that you sang at the end of this, last episode was so dreamy and reminded me a little of new wave songs from the ATS. Thanks, holly. I just had to let you know, thanks so much for the podcast. And for the entertainment, you're very talented on multiple levels, not my words, the words of Holly, shunt Holzer, schon Holzer. And I'm glad I have discovered you love Holly all. Well, isn't that nice, but I am glad that you just give me an I discovered you that's weird. I've discovered you but anyway, moving on swiftly on for get into any trouble. We've had another review from Allison, and she says five stars love the show. One of my favorite podcasts, Kevin is a funny guy. That's me. I love all of voices and impressions. Well, you're one of very few people. I level of Jewish rather, makes it really easy to listen to. A fan of his music, too. Well, thanks, Alison. We'll have haven, Texas five stars of your podcast, just randomly. But I'm glad I did I like the stories in the humid very well. Don't keep it up. That's like a school report. A plus that's from Vella nine thousand nine hundred one we have wonderful podcast, five stars, these five stars. God knows what you drinking. But I keep drinking it. I've really been enjoying Kevin podcast. The stores are all good Kevin is funny and also sounds like George Harrison. So John Lennon impression and Paul McCartney impression yet. I sound like John George Harrison. I'd vice anyone to take a listen. Unless from unbelievably Eleanor be to mellow Rigby to as one five stars forty some good spooky stuff. Kevin has delightful accent. So it's almost like listening to a Beatles cartoon podcast with ghost thrown in the Beatles meets Scooby doo. I can't do that. There's loads more. So thank you, if you want to leave a review, please go. And do you, you know you can also sign up to the patriots, which is patriot dot com forward slash. We need to talk about ghosts. Or if you just soon at knock of any cash, go leave review, that's fine. If you want to do, neither those just listen, that's fine. Again, we're gonna do con- hunt. You down be arrested, rarely you can also as always, send your stories because it makes his show to talk about ghosts are. Hotmail dot com. You can go from the Twitter Atac about ghosts. And of course, all of the socials social Cadman with -ocial cat just get over there and gives a nod and we will not back there. Billy. Yes. So have you been nothing exciting happens to me in the last hour, I did drive all the way tobacco's dads and all the way back? It's hopeful journey of approximately forty five minutes because we live stone's throw away. Just us back if you want to come downstairs, and discussed the flash that scene in the kitchen, she doesn't want him on expectedly non unexpectedly bought what we did discuss is that at this point tomorrow, I will be off to watch address. We Hessel of a play that bekker's moms in and amongst. The cast is a spiritualist. Yes. And she has agreed to come on the show. Now the formats of that it's going to be in a couple of weeks time, Marx necessarily, Mark is becka stepped out, and he's a very well educated man and he's going to have his fault unit opposable. She's going to have is sitting with the spiritualist, and we're going to recall that with mission. And then we'll have a second episode where Mark tells us, he actually thinks of it. Whether it's believable on whether he thinks he gave stuff away or not. So that's going to be really good. I'm wro looking forward to it. Yeah. So should we see Paul McCartney? Okay. Let's go. See. Hi, everybody. I'm actually George here day. Paul couldn't make it. I'm afraid I think what's happened is Kevin's making the most of the comment made that he sounds a bit like George so I'm going to do it instead of poll today, if that's okay. You may remember me as one of the least popular Beatles, and also the more spiritual one as search, I'm going to discuss the move moo or the Moi. But the moon y dependent on where you want to say it, how you want to say it, and it's an Indian one, an I know, India 'cause I went over there in the seventies and sixties with Ravi, Shankar anyway. This is the moon. My one of the strangest ghosts in India. The moon y is said to haunt the lowers the members of the lower Indian castes, who are lazy or have criminal tendencies, it actual like appall to Geist never being seen, but throwing objects around and attacking people, according to reports the we'd spirit can make its presence felt both during the daytime and night. I agree with you. I'm not a very excitable voice in comparison to circle at I'm also not as popular. I do have the advantage of currently being dead. Another full arguably ghost myself. So I therefore, thank God could be more relevant to this podcast moving forward. I do hope that. No, you love your microphone down, George. That was lovely Georgia. I'm sure that we'll have you back when hell freezes over bloody, Al, that was Boreham on. So that was the new my everyone on George Harrison. Thanks, george. That was pleasant. So should we going to go see stuff? Well, we've got some Beltre's full you. Yes, we've had an amazing Email commend by one of our great listeners. And I'm going to read that out for you. Now, this come in from Michelle Scylla and says, I go on, it's actually entitled some stories for you from Texas. Well, are you har- is that racist? I'm not sure Texans a race. Now, I think I'm okay few a year. Anyway. Hello. I've been thinking about emailing you for a while. But I have so much to say that it's going to be a long one. We I grew up in a house that I was sure was haunted, actually, my entire life with things have happened around me. So maybe it's me that's haunted. You know what Michelle it. Very well could be I'm a strong believer in that sort of thing I have to say, so I'll try break up the stories into paragraph for you. And that's actually how you should all send you stories in, because it's great for me to read, and she continues when I was a kid, I grew up in a small suburb, outside of Dallas, Texas. I was five when we moved into this house, and I very clearly remember my aunt giving us a deep freeze to keep in our garage since my sister. And I was so small, she was worried about my parents being able to lock the freezer. Oh, yeah, I guess that she stole my sister, and I would climb in for some reason, and gets inside the Esa game of hide and seek that would go terribly terribly terribly. Wrong, that's me saying that imagine that, okay? I'll tell me back. Go and hide. No. Just didn't find them. Let's get off. Let's just leave. And then two days later. Oh my God frozen children. Anyway, I guess you thought my own offset, the my aunt died from cancer, not long after that, sorry. Philip inappropriate now just cracking a joke. I'll move quickly. I'm sorry about that not long after that my family and I were eating at the dinner table where my mother noticed something swinging on the key rack across the room, she got up and looked at it and attend to be the key fit the deep freeze that my auntie given to us interesting. There was a period of a few months where a hallway light with ten itself off and on my mother would joke about us having a ghost. Don't be joking about these things, you know, they do come. One time I came to visit and she was telling my anti our house was haunted. Of course, my aunt didn't believe her. They were sitting in our living room together, and you can see down into the hallway from it, a, my mom, jokingly said, okay, ghost ten on the hallway light. We know what's going to happen here. It turned on my aunt skeptics said that it was just a coincidence. My mother stubborn she is said, okay, then please send back out. Of course it went out. They went on for about five minutes before. Quit. But every time everytime, she asked to turn lights on or off. It did at interesting isn't and scary. Why would you be I'll be honest? If I went goes turn the light on, on that I came on. That would be me you just smell as sweet, aroma of my backside, and then I'll be outrun down the streets about one hundred miles an hour. I won't be then going back off again. And back on and turn it back, it says five minutes, five minutes are what point would you say, listen, can we all just run away rapidly and we'll get a priest with the big smudge? Stick to come in to we can all city and not play this game with the dead enemy. Let's say. As these went on things in the house began to happen more frequently and it was very uncomfortable to be in the house, alone, pictures, and decorations would fall off the walls lights would turn on and off. Thanks for that trick. TV's return turn on on the volume of go up, or they were turned off when we were watching something I had a piggy Bank shaped like a jukebox that played company, love, George elector, which would randomly play in the middle of the night doors, would open and close. I would hide onto my on my blankets all night. And the house to settle down before I could go to sleep, the house to settle down, not hell. A couple of times, I peeked out from under the covers and sort of black figure in the corner of my room just in front of the door. Like it was blocking the exit to keep me from getting away from its mother. I would often feel like someone sat down on my bed with me. Or took my covers or clothes or hair all limbs. Limbs. Do you feel like you like getting pulled? I mean, oh, I say, this is terrifying. We'll continue as I saw more and more of that. I'm getting a bit scared. Are you may be able to help our my breath my breathing? The fact it's dark and I had a strange noise before as I saw. I saw more and more of the figure my room. We also started seeing more things around the house. The way our house was setup left an opening into the dining room slash ten at one. If the kitchen and the living room on the other side, the living room and dining room slash den, and hallway also metre, progress from the kitchen sorts of like a big open rectangle can pitch it up. Big open, rep, tangle rep tunnel. My mother was also cooking breakfast one morning. But she so my sister pruning back and forth across the opening into the dining groups. Dan Integrion chat. She was wondering, to a self bought unearth. She was doing, but left her alone because she was trying to cook, once she was done. She went into the living room and finally, actual sister sleep on the floor in a gray shirt. She was about five or six, I believe, oh, six or seven five or six about six or seven I believe, and that was the first time any soul in speech marks the little girl, as we would call at after that, interestingly, I read the something before about beliefs around the world, and it's a lotta believes that if you call something, something, not something being if you call something, an aim, it gives it life, almost like topa, if you will, and you'll find across the world, and, you know, this ready. 'cause you paranormal books already apparently like there's a witch in. For example, the forest of Boland and you can't mention her name, when you there, the locals will snarl you because. You think if you keep saying the name, you keep giving a life, the chance he's gonna come out of the ground and grab you by the throat. Anyway, we're gonna get more on this story. And the little girl, speech marks after we have a little mid-point little points for the little go. But she's not sweet. Remember, she's dead. And the devil. Disclaimer. She may not be the devil. But she's definitely. The midpoint time for us all to go make a Cup of tea. Get some biscuits. Put them in a circle on a plate in say, look what I've just made mother. Yes amid point. So must tell you I feel like I can't drink anymore alcohol, literally feel like it'd been drinking for like two months on the trot, and it's killing me, slowly. But thankfully, we've got crew's coming up on it now as you hear this. I'm on the cruise today's my birthday, and I will be drinking a birthday drink in Valetta now, apparently, inva- letter Malta is Oliver Reed's last ball as in, it's called the bar very inventive. But opponents of the last drink before he died of alcoholism Jerez, so we're going to probably in there right now as I speak, as I see these words, I'm probably drinking miles drink in the place of reeds last drink the bar. Which is Abbar co verba. Yeah. So, yeah. Forty a where does the time go when I don't know, when I look back on my life. I have not much to say really there's not much that happens.

So we know where we're up to. She was about six or seven I believe, and that was the first time any soul in speech marks the little girl, as we called our after that. I think the rest of my family continued to cut glimpses of our here and there, but I will never forget seeing for myself. I was in high school and getting ready to go to school. My parents bathroom Mary, had a sink across from a big window next to their closet in brackets will get that creep in, in a minute. You bet you we will shell I was looking into the mirror killing my hair when I saw movements behind me, bump, bump bump, and I moved over to better. See the reflection of the window behind me thinking, maybe it was all dog. And that's when I saw her. She was tiny. I'm blonde and standing just behind the white Shia curtains. Oh, that's horrible. The white sheer Kant's that my parents had hanging on their window. Oh my God. How three men and a little lady of you, I jumped tend to actually look at the window, and she was gone. But the cans were moving just a little bit on that side. Like somebody just brushed past them. That's horrible doing this tongue in cheek but that's percents of proper. Shiva Dombi spine the I can pick it up path almost two perfectly because it was me, it wasn't me. But that is fine. Let's see what happens next. I dare I dare I yes, I did. I'd like to say I was surprised by golden the window. I'd like to see you as well, shall come on. Let's be honest. But by this point, we were also seeing a man loom kinky, maybe two men travel kinky we never have figured that out for sure. Not long after a cousin of mine died, God, I have to just on kinky jogo guard, sorry show, not long after cousin of mine died. My dad was in the bathroom and head mom, whispering. His name under the door. We'll joked about it a little bit. And in brackets as I'm writing this, and thinking, maybe too much made them mad. But then we also started seeing things that the voice may have actually belonged to. When I said that, somebody said his name, I mean, his actual name fast and middle. He only is ever going by his middle name, and most people don't know his first name, my mother would see a man walking back and forth between bedrooms in the back of the house. And I would and I would see a mom wearing all black. Maybe the thing from my room. The question Mark annotation that she knew it a question. Is it entertaining? No. The first time I saw him. I was maybe ten or eleven years old, and I have my friend over, I think we're playing in the water because I don't have my didn't have my glasses on at the time. And remember my vision being blurry. I was looking for my dad, and she and I were walking around the house together. So try and find him. I remember looking at the part of the house, where the hallway method dining room slash Dan and living room. And I saw my dad speech. Mark standing there. He was wearing all black. I started to talk to him, and he turned walked away from very slowly when back into my parents room, I followed them in, but couldn't find him I walked to the back of their room or whether closet door was open and looked inside thinking, he had gone into it. The closet was ice cold and nobody was inside. This is bloody honorable came back out and check the rest of the rooms and finally gave up and came down the hallway to where my friend was waiting for me. I asked if I asked if my comeback out and she stood there staring at me. Open mouth and white as his sheet. She starts to talk and voice was causing a throat after a minute. All she could say to me was that wasn't your dad not long after that my dad came in from the backyard wearing a bright blue shat? Oh my God. That's awesome. That's terrifying. Oh my God. This is the second up showed in the room like shadowy people. I mean last week the Easter bunny gronya but this is just as equally scary, but less chocolate. So take this move after that day, the closet, doors seem to be open a lot. It was always cold, which is quite the feet in the dead of in Texas, the dog will growl at, and I remember, you could I remember that you could close the door literally, hang on the handle with your entire body body weight, and it wouldn't come open yet managed to be open all the time, I eventually left to join the army, that was a shoot video, but that come from. But when I would come home, and visit little things would still happen to me, my parents, would my parents told me some stories about things that was still happening when. I was gone, and the eventually moved out of the house into my dad's childhood home, open Oklahoma where crazy things still happen. I live in central Texas and three kids now. My daughter has stories about margin every friend who happens to have the same name as the anti told you about at the start of this Email than content. And we have a lot of weird things happening in our home recently as well. I know this Email is gotten pretty long. So go ahead and stop. But if you'd like to know the rest, you can count on your bottom dollar. What does that mean? I mean. Yes. Just yesterday.

Yes that will do the got away with that one few what story Michelle on a series note? Do send in the rest of those whatever else is happening. Sammy the longest Email you want to read it out because that's amazing how scary especially girl behind the curtain. I don't want to see that said when referred to three mental lady, I don't seem inlet lady three minutes, baby us all know this, because you listen to a ghost podcast, but allegedly on one of the three men and their baby lady child dog films, there's meant to be a little boy behind one of the curtains, which is thoughts, and you can actually see if you go through the film, you'll see store beyond a cat. And but it turns out, it's not a ghost tens out. There was loads of stories. Oh, yeah. To child through jumped out of the window to child actor shot himself in the face to child act through too many spaghetti hoops and exploded into a load of owes it's none of that. It's a Kabul, Ted Danson. Yes, I feel like dancin Ted Danson, not all it was wasn't a ghost bought your one sound much more scarier because it's definitely not Ted Danson. It's a little blonde thing.

I think in this before so I had one before that so for for for for you. Yeah I don't know actually to be honest you're a double nominee. That's true but it you made up for it. Adams our side this year so I actually asked to have everybody seated at the same table. We'll see if they'll do that. We'll see I do think it's important to point out that the people you're listening to all work together on Park and recreation so that that's where this team blossom from so you're not just listening to people who know each other from two of the good place now also a heritage of people working and screaming at each other. We've had a long history of working out. I don't know that we screaming about people. That is an important point. I don't think we I don't think I've ever screamed at either one of you or Graham and quieter when I'm around Graham in general you got to be nice to grand your name could end up in infamy on graphic that could last him. The REVENGE IS IMMORTAL. Grand Grandma's graphics revenge on his side Graham. Have you ever graphic revenged anyone? Have you ever graphic revenged anyone Graham? You don't need to give any names yes you know I have. I used anybody's name but there's definitely going in jokes Where people were let go from a show and then I will talk about them in a traffic people on the show. No I'll just that has happened before. That's good because we've gone through many art directors. I actually think that's a good. That's a good segue. 'cause I don't is the chief driver mystery in this any of these episodes or is it just in season four. I think just the four just season for it right but I mean in the episode that are nominated. So we're we're nominated for two episodes but you know it's the breath of season four That the good place were excited about and the chip driver mystery was an opportunity for Graham. Who at the time that I met on Park and recreation wanted to be a writer and if you can pause and hung somehow see the craftsmanship of rapid enjoy the back cover of the driver mystery including the front cover art? I see what you mean. I got lost. What you're saying. Yes yes I think it has been shown already through what has aired though. It has that that episode aired. I just didn't know if it was in the episode that we are nominated for. I don't think it'll sound now. I don't think so I think Randy Remember I. I think they make a brief reference to it but the image the visual is not in their. That was a different party in the back. Lot did a few days ago. Ice Sculpture exact so its employees of the Beira me and it is. What is the other one? We should know the name. I think it's helping other people people that's right. I don't ever remember the names. I just remember the numbers and then like I could flash at a set list and be like Yep I remember that Yeah Remember. The other sets them what we were doing. Yeah it all runs together because we are prepping and shooting and then you're talking of with this show about like visual effects from previous episodes or if we need an insert or anything so when we say we future as well you're just talking about the two episodes that are wrapping and prepping. You're talking about stuff that may have to get bill or designed if we're lucky red and suddenly you know visual effects. How are we going to achieve certain things and how as visual effects going to work with us? To make it all come to fruition. So won't end. The actors have gotten a lot more famous than they originally were not. That Ted Danson wasn't famous when the show started. But they've got more popular and the actor. Availability specially simone affected our lives because scheduling them in these episodes made us bend backwards and forwards to accommodate. Not US personally but the schedule to get that thing in there. I mean we changed a lot in our lives to accommodate the actor. Derek's schedule kill switch. Ceo's put in there. Do you know that the beginning of season seven of parks and REC? They didn't have any available actors. The first day of shooting. They had to fly these in for one day for his shots because they had no one available crap was doing of the galaxy when he first started that no one was available to shoot parks and REC because they had all other projects so yes we bend backwards and no one really cares. No our job. We aren't we aren't I don't know we're there to make it. Great whatever the scheduled turns out to be. I mean we can piss and Moan as much as we want but it's not gonNA change the actor in the room. Yeah but back to Kim's point I would have to say that is part of what makes it so hard to remember what was going on. Yeah I think we were all sort of gearing up to these huge last episodes also that are coming up And we were getting little bits and pieces about it that you start jumping ahead and you start getting excited about upcoming sets too and so yeah. You don't always know. Remember Back and plus. This was sick people video at the beginning. I'm getting a little bit at as where they Montage of everything done throughout the year and I feel like we shot that well after we had already shot the episode like went back and picked up some bits. We did. You're right and did yeah. It was like I think almost to the last episode was like. Hey we in part of this montage we gotta get this and we already have VAT and a Lotta pieces. I feel like they did have or took from other episodes but we did have to go back and make flower alley. We did and they were for fans that are cute. Who are really paying attention. Those scenes were continuations of scenes from season. One two or three and we knew that because we knew what the precursor scene was meant to be which did not always air. That FLOWER ALLEY. Scene was a continuation of something that happened in the previous season. And so we're not doing set. That literally got rained on and heatstroke last year we had to then match it to whatever was done in season three and so did hair and makeup and wardrobe and it goes all around. I mean I think too though. That's that was one of the. Nice things about this show is that there were many instances where they said. We're GONNA shoot this also because it's GonNa come up later like when the statue fell on. Tani's onto honey. That's how she died. They shot how she died or like when she didn't die. I or something I don't know they shot something else that they've revealed this season only remember and I think that happened in two like there was enough work at honey's mansion. I think you should speak on this path but I don't think people want to go back to that mansion more than once went back a lot but we were always trying to bank footage from it. Yeah we we constantly. We're going back to the mansion that nobody wanted to go back to not only for cost reasons but for location reasons and we we kept going back there and I. I believe that we literally let the cameras. Ron Just to get footage right ovar actors in the space so that we could use it later. Yeah an out in the garden. You'll think they did or they did like the existing shot her like walking in a couple of different times like just like having a to have and they tried endlessly. Show shoot around right. Wasn't there Julius. Caesar Statute that the owner Bob we could. I'm we were there and couldn't move it. That was tweeted out today by the good place and I was like. Oh why are you showing that whatever whatever Let's quickly talk about these episodes that we are nominated for because our work is being acknowledged. And that's awesome. Yeah really proud of it and I will say it's really fun to be back together. We don't actually get together outside of work that often so the camaraderie is true. And you can work on other shows but when you have a laughing history with these folks yes really good. We have a good time. We get tired of each other. I think we're all just tired at the never really each other and I also think that there's a lot of respect. We have for each other in our working relationships that I mean not Graham. I'm pretty sure that Kim WanNa will be seen in near future on on. Graham's going to get me let's start with Janet's jail which was on a location location was the same location a demon con. We had architects office architects office. We had Shawn's office rate originally if you've ever farmers insurance commercial Him there. What was your inspiration for that jail in designing it you know. I don't know that there was really any inspiration other than it couldn't be just jail bars Adam found those great pieces that lit up The idea was that it was a force field. That is holding Janet in and Adam came up with those great pieces a we ended up using and we built that inside of a back corner windows behind that we plugged diverse log. A few of the windows and there. If I'm not mistaken on the day that we were installing there were homeless men screaming outside of the windows downtown. La How Los Angeles but It was really it had to feel like it was from another world and that was that was our justification for yeah designing that. I think that there's also a balance that you have so well in this In this show of we don't have any rules but we have roles so it still has a b jail to the to the human eye but it doesn't necessarily have to look like jail or it could be something else like you have that freedom but you also have the restriction of them always relating to it to the humans right and it's not like we're doing a futuristic piece right now we're not doing something that sci-fi that is so just out of this world we. I think everything always relates back to sort of the human condition because the story really is about what are our characters who used to be human. Janet is on a human and she's not a girl so so yeah. I think the challenge is to can to show something to the human to the viewers that they could believe that a robot couldn't get out of and like no one really knows what that is not a robot not aware about yes. You're right about mad at myself for saying that. But that that's the challenge is like and we ran into that again in the bad place jail. Like how do you do something? And this had been shot before wreck so like Kinda run with a light force field. You know. What is it? That's GonNa keep someone in right and you still wanted to look interesting. So we we did take a lot of cues from lighting in order to create effects that felt like it was a force field of sorts We ran lights around the bars. We ran lights in the ceiling. We and lights on the floor out. I remember taking we took the there was a practical friction. Practical Al All. I remember was. Does she needed bench? And it was like a discussion like what she said. She doesn't sit so really also. Is there a toilet? Yeah I like this like jail jail and they were like It's just sees. She goes in Peru which is hard for me for me to really check that one off. Okay but why? Why do we know but we do ask those questions meetings? I mean we in these are things I must say in meetings the art department and I would say wardrobe We ask questions to our creators in our producers and a Lotta Times. It's I dunno let's What do you got or you know? There's a freedom there that they let us you know create or proposed especially with props with gay and I think wardrobe. They were always open to things and I definitely think that the sets what what we would come up with what we would propose. You've always ready with drawings and examples and everything so won't specifically in that jail I remember Adam asked about some puck lights. Some tap lights to put in the cell and Graham came up with a graphic to put on to those puck lights so that it wasn't just a light night. There was something else that was there that made it feel very surreal. It wasn't just a something from the human world that could have been achieved. We we took everything in manipulated as much as we could in order to make it feel like it was from another world all right it was maybe four seconds of screen time. So let's move on the ram route scene where now that was a rental right or did you hear that unit. Actually has you know. It's it's the most photographed you know. I don't know what the Hands Palm Card briefly. It's a rental. You can call me. I can tell you where I got. Its Chassis of golf cart sitting with a piece of scenery over at the pump card. It doesn't actually function of you'll notice. I think it's manny. I don't think Ted Danson was driving and I think man he was driving it. And it's a gas pedal under right. Now what do you mean by others? It doesn't actually function what it means is. The hand does not actually create the motion of the cart. That's it is actually a pedal that moves forward and backward. Yep and there's two scenes where it was US. We actually had it a lot in season. Four but the two scenes were specifically. Talking are there was a green screen. Seen David Nagel basically made the entire world which is the tunnel on the way to the bad place. And then there's a small snippet in a bad place. I have to say that that original drawing came from the art department to Ogle. So yeah you do that and this and I think you made the drew the sign and then Graham turn the sign into a graphic doing something your mom right into the bad place. Population your mom. Yes and it's very quick. I mean you have to pause it to see that but it's on. I saw this because I watched it and I saw the sign down there. But I didn't consider a but everyone lives in Easter Egg. So you know take a look on when they land into the bad place. That is a location that we trust as the end of the railroad stop and that location was also the Museum of torture from a previous season and Getting to Redo a location is always fun to make it into something else. I also a really interesting location. His lawyer in L. A. A CHOCOLATE FACTORY. There's sixteen or twelve different spots around downtown. La that have these little Glazed tile vaulted ceiling like little stores and and they are murals. Gather beautifully done. No they're tile. They are ceramic gorgeous. Yup hand cab pictures. There were three mirrors in that we covered with images that you pick that related the bad place that The grandma and those were they were door a right Graham. I think he took two inches in one when we split and then we re colored them and then place. The men's look like they're on sale and I used vinyl. Yeah that's correct. Yeah and they were yeah. Those were They were either woodblock cuts or etchings that you colorized Greg. Yeah I really love that location so any time we get to do a set down there. I think it's great but it was very quick. It was really and that was. That was not an easy set to do. Seventy five track. Because we weren't really sure nobody really know non-re- not accusing writer director producer. Nobody really knew how that scene was going to actually play. Alex how are they going to arrive? Because it was a lot longer than what was aired right and not only that like we didn't know what the digital footage was going to be. There could have been in. There could have been dialogue coming down the track. We didn't know at that time right. And what was the platform? This is the end of the line and train. Tracks are surrounded by gravel and dirt and Adam came up with a great idea to use cork. Yeah that was FUN THAN WE'VE POURED. I. I can't tell you how much core all the way down that location but it was perfect because it was not dirt. Now have to scrape it all up. Yeah it was clean dirt. Yeah and like that was a good example of really good team effort. I mean electrical was swapping out. Light screens. Team was putting down core. Construction was building train. Track set dressing was coming into dress. The debris graphics was making seionage. I mean it's just one tiny scene but you switch all those together and you you're gonNA see a Lotta tiny scenes in the good place. The that on top of that location is a block away from where we did Demon Khan and the jail. So we're dressing that and and putting all that stuff in while they're shooting the other scenes and I mean I think it was one day there and maybe half day at the at the railroad even it was. It was very quick that they shot over there and all of them were things about the good place is that there were so many locations and so many different scenes. That really helped build the story. Yeah because without all of those different places. I don't know that the story would be the same now. I think we're lucky with working with like a Mike. Sure Morgan or people who don't say no often and sometimes you want them to be like. Oh really what? We're really GONNA do this. Kids think you're GONNA work. You can't afford that. And then they're just they're sort of yes producers and writers and that freedom that and then there yes to us which you know. It doesn't happen on every show. We're lucky no. They take humor to very seriously. I think it's important to note that we do we go. We want people to laugh at this show. And we're self absorbed enough to know that we want people laugh at ourselves saying this stuff. Support whatever's going on and even though we knew that that ended that railroad him and you know the next set the employee of the month like. Yeah we want people to enjoy it too and if there if you think honestly Graham takes the most because because if you look at the material any of the printed material it is the most brilliant writing yes they can possibly be done in graph. I WANNA call you out on the spot Graham. What was the Asterik at the bottom of bees from the makers of other things? So if you pause Jason's walking down the holly a month and other other animals that would also be available so like wasps. Scorpions of down to bomb. I mean more often than not other shows. I try to highest. Been there. It's really for the crew because no one else can see like on parks early on Mike. Everything to try to make swinging lap will signs that nobody was going to see. I mean I remember. He was Jerry's artwork archer. Whatever all of the little artists descriptions goofy on this show the actors see them to it lends to the scene that lends it lends to the set. It's very important because it lends to their reality of what they're in the moment. Should people are GONNA freeze free? That's the thing I've never been involved in the show where you know people are free framing every single. Yes Jesse where jokes? It's great. I think one that people do get to see in these episodes is what is What do you call Sean Graham? It's something something something blowhard like isn't it? World had the bad place. Greatest Blowhard or something like that something like that. Yeah whatever it is. We could freeze it. And that's the thing. Is that when you watch it? You can just enjoy whatever it is but if you were to posit because you've got to go to the bathroom or get some laundry or more wine You're going to enjoy when you come back and see the screening are going to say what I think. That's what inspired the many fruits frame of an attention that the show gets. Yeah in all different departments. Everyone's doing that. What's great to. Is that not everything is written and the creative freedom that grand gets or like we get to explore that with Graham and like little things like calling out museum torture items or like this employee board like we should talk about that too. That that's kind of a throwback to parks so it's not an and I don't think that that was written that's something. No that came came out of like discussion. That's something creative. That came out of discussion. It wasn't written to look like the parks and and I think that the token of triumph for that wall was that Jason Talks about those pictures and that was not scripted. That was ad libbed. He's walking down and he's commenting on things that we put there because we thought they needed to be there and the gift that an actor notice and used to motivate the scene and now it's a big compliment now you the three of you are on the wall. The whole entire art department is actually on the wall in fact. I'm pretty sure that everybody gets seen. Yeah I know it's true. I Know Adam does because I gram grams. You're not in it. He's the beef poster but yeah seven and you get there. Camille Stephanie is in their chef is in there just seventy RPI. Jeff are art department coordinator Camille. Who isn't here but nominated also as are set designer Yeah and then the took the photos and had them up in the office all season so every time you walk in and out of the office you would see all of them in black and white and that was all thanks to Jeff and even in the office. They were organized in hierarchy of the art department which was quite funny even to me and it's a little bit your Grammy Got Yours Graham you of yours. Oh I'd be made sure to saving. He's shudder. Shy Oh Graham would have been perfect in there. What he's doing and then I think that Morgan's definitely in it and Morgan seconds on there and so are five to seven people from the park and rec some of the writers. Yeah Jank working there. I think he's right Dan. Yeah and no Neil I forget his name but I remember it was like. Oh there's that writer but yeah and then there's not like we go those. Those aren't stock photos like that with thirty five. Various aged bad place people and who'd never some of them had never been background before and they're asking me what are they doing? I'm saying you know. Stand austere proud negative upset. Yeah whatever and you ended what you get a bad place employee of the month. Now the pin that is on the pal of everyone which is highly coveted by the way selling like crazy online. Then it's not sanctioned by NBC. Let's say that. Did you do that no I did not do I thumbs down a hill? Heaven Heaven. He's not on this one. We're GONNA talk about. We should say that. It was a graphic developed by the art department. That is now like and I kinda gay marriage that is coveted by people who love this show. I think he's being a bad place. Talk About Demon Con. That is kind of an epic point in that episode. Such fun because I think notes I got was like a lot of smoke in there a lot of coffee and it's dated by the way we're going to blow Goo all over of cetera. W curtains tablecloths W chairs. Yeah Double Your Sixteen foot drapes. It was it was gonNA be a huge huge explosion which I think it wasn't in reality and they made it bigger and post because it actually don't remember paying that much Ellen D- I think they did a good job of keeping it off Yesler and I. I think it's very important to note that that the consists in that room. We put that in there. Three I'm call on Kim's first mother's Day so I I won't forget that because we both were like. Why is this cruel? So we loaded that set in and went in overnight and it was ready for dressing in the morning and we were out of there and twenty four forty dollars. They had one day of shooting in. This was also just an opportunity to give character to like table dressing. Which isn't quite exciting. Because there weren't flowers because we didn't want to do like it was because it was more of a convention and it wasn't like a the most boring mention that ever existed because it's supposed to be torture so it's like that mustard colors. It's like I think I dream create deep. I also know that we did like a side. We did cy young with an amazing signed by ground. That said something along the lines. That's not entertaining. Play cats which is very timely appropriately board. We will elections from And I also think it's important to note that they that you had an idea of a really great location. That was like a Masonic temple or something and we couldn't go there because it didn't fit in the day and then we're basically tried to make our theater be something like that. Had these really great textures very dark in there? So I don't know if you can actually see it on windows or anything. I think you do get a little hint of the texture on the preceding him there and and that was all created by us was in. Here's one sign. I think it's as Demon Kinda up over the top of the. Yeah the pander that was brought in that we didn't put that there by visual effects but it was there that's that was not there and then was there and then gone yes any particular graphics from that set that you can think of grant that Yuma through a different versions of what the main poster with Sean. Who's GONNA look like? Oh I do remember that right I I know I I think our I passed a little bit more fifties and still kind of boring but it was like no no. It has to be more boring. Remember dialing back and further. I think he hit the sweet spot. But it's one of those things right when you're working on your like like this is true more we we also had like five or six photos of the actor who played. Sean. Like in boring poses. Like try to tell an actor be boring and he did it. He's thanks mark is yeah. Although I don't I I can't tell you how many people walked up to me that day. And there were all the flyers that were sitting on the bar and people kept walking up and said these are the most brilliant flyers. How did you come up with these? And I said that's all Graham. I had nothing to do with any of this and so it is. I think goes over and looks at the Flyer Stat Demon con is you know promoting their Seven aries seminars. And that also okay. I made up a bunch of itinerary pamphlets. They were like night. She ended up making something fifty pages super thick interest by pages. I think she can get it in them. I don't know that those actually got seen. I think they're on a pile in the background. I don't think they were. That didn't get because I the trend that side harder eat hearts or whatever was on the wall. And you do see that. But you don't see much else Paper properly unfortunately with that was that was those were fun sets and then we go to the bright light and beautiful. Tani's Lake House which was a beautiful home in studio city. I believe yeah I would. I would love to live. And there wasn't a whole lot of work there. For me. To be honest it was styled work work and then the table and addressing the table and gay brought in a lot of the food and I think minimalizing. What was there actually to make it? Look more modern and more like a little stark. Yeah that was basically you guys dealt with you know working with like what the set extension to be and if that location worked for the scene having I mean it was really about the contrast of what that was in comparison to Tani's to her manage to her mansion it that is so over the top in so overbearing and old so different from from her mansion. I think what was successful to like as a viewer. I mean obviously I'm biased and working on the show but after four seasons it can be difficult to find a new language to introduce something different in that house successfully and I think you guys found a great choice to bring a world that we hadn't seen on that show. That was a very modern mid-century. Look that really hadn't been without clowns. Yeah exactly exactly. Yeah I enjoy taking her out of the element of the FRU FRU and a big token to A. I guess I should say congratulations Sydney Nago because if you guys remember it was pouring rain that day and I don't know how you watch that scene and how it's raining but it was pouring rain. There was mud in that way. I feel like that scene was shot out out of bad in a very small window. Yeah aunt was Oh. Look it's drizzling. Run outside and start shooting that path. I think McCarthy Miller directed that episode also. Yeah Yeah I was Super Fun so moving onto the other episode that we are nominated for we. We should say Mendis House is in a lot of this episode and I hope and I wonder if any of the audience has noticed. That Mendis doesn't look different to look any different now. After four seasons of traveling forty miles. I don't know to a location and dressing it. Every time repainting carpeting doing that every single time dates greens putting in that Middle Wall between the kitchen and everything they decided to build it. So Ian designed built that onstage with Adam and I I it was. It's a redress for me ever but I have changed slightly over the seasons. But aren't you glad that they built it? Slight slight differences. And I'm not going to give any of those away. Good if you can remember then hopefully nobody else can remember but that that the said Mendis House was actually a set built on location. No it was an existing house. Well that was an existing set built right on location. But it wasn't. It was not a real practical house. None of water around the traveler so it was a set and we built a set of the set on stage. And Uh but you guys also built like the front yard which was impressive to me. I thought that whole front yard. And then you had a beautiful backdrop. That went all the way around. The House has been awesome. That is from a show that I got my start on kind of all. Yeah and bishop time at the back in the back. Yes that if if you remember that so the backing from outside let me when when they said they're going to do the same did you think carnival backdrop that's GonNa work? No I can't tell you. How many backings? We search through to find the right backing and it just so happened you know. I wish I could remember that far back. I think it's important to note to this part when we're talking about two specific episodes but there is a team effort here and Caroline King was involved in creating. Mendis and Cheetahs which we'll talk about probably a minute because she she pioneered got. I think it's worth mentioning. She was helpful and creating that replica measuring. Yeah Yeah and I am not being near the first couple episodes. David Smith helped rebuild that Decorating wise so and you know he. He also had to not only deal with dressing a set that he had never dressed before. But you addressed for. Yeah I I yeah. It's a weird thing when you take over someone else's dressing because I've as I've said you want to be respectful and sometimes you don't agree with choices and sometimes you like man. I wish I thought of that. So there's always the see-saw of like oh on notice. We were changing the set on top of it in order to be able to put it on our stage. Yeah I think that is important topic to discuss his that like. We are always inheriting other people's as we were not there in yarded this show and you WanNa respect it but then the script changes are thing happens and you have to adapt it and you want to respect and influence and make your own statement for that part of the script and Mendis House was used all along and many ways and ruin to the end of the season. It was destroyed. Sad not destroyed but they blow up people in it all right Adam. Why that happens. That's already happening. Didn't yeah totally happen. They in the same episode really. I feel like I feel like we know that it feels like an ending. But it's not next time we do this. We're doing mystery science so no question. I mean I I also very jealous. 'cause I missed the first four episodes that David Smith got to do Cheetahs apartment. Which was a bill this season and beautifully done and a little French thing adamant that as well I did. Yeah we both were out of it so you know Miss Caroline King both the work tirelessly on reading no sets and lived up of Yogurt Yogurt Yogurt. The whole time who had travelled has I think people are like. Where did you this whole time square the whole time? Nobody where the balls of it is is like. Eleanor into honey had these big gigantic sprawling estates. I mean you. Johnny certainly has an estate and he's gone sure what She has one but his his place was filled with all the things that he loved it was he loved. Lets us both and research and seeing that was done in the episode that we got to look at his childhood and go back to Gaul and do the classroom and his parents house and I really enjoyed that episode in diving into that character. And seeing you know what did his parents have and what inspired him and what would have been in the good place and and taking me discuss taking things from his good place apartment and putting them in his parents house of those would be items of comfort in which is a favourite. Part of that to me is beautiful. You made a great decision to do that. I think it helped in relation to his family. And how important that was. We'll give leadership portis. I feel like it. It gave him roots. Yeah and that was something that you and I discussed. Was You know taking little bits and pieces and putting him in a lot of which was? Which was a bummer on the classroom? I mean they saw some of it but they didn't see a lot of it. Yeah no that was good. That was a fun episode to I mean but the big thing in that next episode is the party that goes on that you've made it a year and that the beautiful installations that you guys did Can you talk about that a little bit? And how you decided. I think that's that's all you. I definitely looked up a lot of really cool stuff just in general. La a party city so that felt like well. Let's see what they got. And I think I walked into your office with. I don't know seven or eight interesting things that could be rented with your tip off or Patrick's tip off from the contact at three. And I you know I don't really know how you picked what you picked. But I remember laying them out in front of you and then you were like these teaser. Amazing and that was really. What did it that was the kind of the Lynch pin and then the rest of the the artwork and the sets were built around the. I guess the one thing that I remember about that set was as things were starting to get delivered and TV's were getting set up. Autumn came into my office and said Ian. I think we have a problem. I need you to come out to the back lot and look at these light towers. They don't have any bags backs that's right and I remember thinking Graham. Hurry up make assign. Oh Shit what are we gonNA do about this and I got out there and I think we we kind of looked at it and we were like Mohican hot. We can hang some shiny sparkly drapery on it and I think we found probably the most garish. Yeah quarter bar called the fabric and I was like what the fuck you got to wear. Locate are these did work concerning to see an art director of productions liner with fabric back to rupture with lead men looked at each other and like came in. They're not asking us to do it. Let Them Do. We got problems because it took so long to install those teepees related. Yes took a very long time and so I was getting very nervous of the amount of time that I was having to dress the set. I remember freaking out a little bit. I think the statement though is that we wanted something. A years worth remembering and celebration. Those did it and then we needed a lot of light. Because we're filming darkness. And we need to motivate unusual for this show. We don't do a lot of nighttime shoots and everyone was going to be in black. It's it's also I think the idea behind the whole scene was it's new year's yeah it's kind of a New Year celebration except for the fact that you have to do this for turney. Which Graham made quite prevalent on the banner that hung there and it was. That's the whole idea of this. Is You have to celebrate this. Yeah for ever. Yeah and it's going to be the same shitty party every time you get here graduates that scripted or was that leg collaboration of you coming up with options that was scripted. I'm almost positive than when you're down any to go. Yeah was your script that Ganor I feel. I was one of those hit a very first time. Feel that was just like one or two passes and then because I think you should feel New Year's and more upscale than our usual place banners right. Hit right away. Yeah and And we had designed the post that that hung from man which were those light posts that framed it was sort of a perceived him of The stairway there yeah now look anybody who works in business. Knows that it's a a fight to get on the set. You know you got the installation of the set pieces and then grip Sir in there with you or then lightings in there with you and then set dressing. And then it's props. There is definitely a a list of people that go in at a certain amount of time because props can't go in groups are in there. Do you know what I mean like. The there has to be a progression so that the centers ready are lighting. Guys who are so sweet It it's it's was a struggle I think in the Senate particularly getting because there was so much lighting and they had the balls to put up and they were trying them and then it was daytime and they had a lot of struggles and they had to light the TV's and they had like the town and they had to write the square a big job on this and it looks great on camera. I mean I think. The coloring that they picked was grade. I think the softness that they had miss grade and not having spotlights and shit like that I think it all looked really really good. They had to battle with a sinkhole right green screen writing coal. Which is a you know from a from a production standpoint especially are deprived green screen in. It's hard not to roll your eyes because that would be a fun thing to do. We actually did. I'm trying to figure out how to do it on stage and you should talk a little bit about the annual. It was on the stage of the backlot But then you feel it on stage like a wall that had like green squares that need Nago Pirelli handholds and I can honestly say that it did not look like what I anticipated it to look like. I did it to me. I thought they were going to be in a different position. Like it didn't make sense to me when they were filming and how it would work but it works right I. It all started on the back lot with literally just a tape. Line that none of the actors could step in front of and need Nago would create that sinkhole. And then you're right. We went on stage and we built a giant Green Wall with some two by four handholds. The actors to kind of hang onto about what a foot off the ground and thank thankfully we have. David need now goal. Also a demon to create that sinkhole. And it shows you how good the actors were there convincing. I mean that's what sells that set. Is there convey our console show. Yeah they really do yeah. It's it's a lot to ask too 'cause I think as lost as we are sometimes in reading this like wait what they've got to be like what did I. What am I saying like? And they have to believe they have to believe that they do an amazing job and I really do love to dance in the show. I really think that he's kind of the best. But I have to say that seventy percent maybe even eighty percent of them believing what they're doing is doing a good job. I'll absolutely yes. Yeah they wouldn't have anything to act. Tend to think of things like when when we create like the bar the Moose job bar this huge fight scene and you have to like do all those actions are like when Graham did all of the graphics for the buffet like they just ate all of that up so much in loved shooting in that buffet for like two three days or something we were there for like two days for Cowboy Yeah Yeah. Yeah yes I mean. I mean Kristen. Bell is tweeting out pictures of the menu and that just shows what kind of talent. Yeah you know we have. We had grandma's grandma's the one creating all of that. And if we have actors tweeting that stuff out before the episode even airs. Hey we must be doing something right. Graham Helen come take to come up with that menu. That menu was almost a week. I feel like when I first came on. Yeah I was basically putting to handle couch skyscraper. Dram there's no way I mean. I love that no way we would have let you be able to go a week. There was so much other things going on those windows. Two and the Montana thing say okay so no no. I'm excited that he would be like we. We were that there for a week one menu. We don't WanNa producers to hear that you know. I think he had the set to do for a week. Yes yes sorry was probably half a day. I feel like that was a long. That's about right with everything else that was going on in there. You have so much to do window. Graphics sign edge tables palms tables wooden tables which only seen yeah. There's there's the San Francisco our piece that we've seen all the stuff at the bar motorcycle liquor bottles. Yeah I mean. Being being on earth season three was really fun like I will always love season for because it was the end and it was sweet but season three kept us on our toes and we still never argued with each other. You don't like these because we couldn't fall back on like minded. It was. Yeah it was hard and giving it was. It was not just locations. We were all around the world around the world. Australia does playoff well. Yeah that's right. They we built that whole university in the Sean it twice. Yeah yeah that's like who we're going to have the at least we'll have this only got his elmer's even coming back with no. This is all we have to like as a backup set and then they only whether you're only in there maybe three episodes shop cheese apartment or standing sets season three. Yeah so let's do. Last thoughts of season for anybody have a favorite said or anything to talk about. And just how we're gonNA miss the good place I mean just even this camaraderie like I don't talk like this. Among my other colleagues on other shows that we are cool shows. We're all doing great things but like it is fun to sit back with you guys reminisce. I mean that's what's gone. I mean it. You can't harnessed out again. And that's why we live in an ephemeral work life like I think we all sickly enjoy the beginning and the end. Otherwise we'd be bank tellers or we'd work on a job that never ended but this was a sweet one and now that it'll be hard to harness his all to back together and that's sad and I remember David. Hi Men who was one of the producers on the show he he said to me. It is really sad and the way that he said. It really did affect me because I was like yeah. He's right this is this is when this group breaks up. This is this is a seven year relationship on park and recreation for some people and then a for another one. And that's what's sad that the show isn't what I think is sad. I eat when we were on park. You knew that it was going to end like we were on season seven with I feel like with good place. It's abrupt but but correct I get it why it's ending at four seasons but I wish it wasn't because I still feel like there's more sets to be had there's more character development that we could do But Yeah I. I think it's I think it's totally sad that the show's over and I don't think I appreciated enough when I was in it. I agree that's me that's my that's always the hardest part of every show every show. Ra. But they're they're they're very special shows that I feel like I've underappreciated. Now of course like Adam says it's all work and we all love the beginning in the end and yes. It's important that we all end on a high note. I feel like this nomination for all of our sitting here is eight and we we all work together again and Mike sure will create another brilliant show and we'll just continue the family tradition of working says that Mike sure is a big reason not to like kiss ass but like he really is racial and anyone who gets to work with him. Bef- be lucky with that because I how many times have we come to meetings with the bonkers idea? Are He said a bunker idea to us? And we got to make it and there was a lot of abrasion or conflict. It was very fun to make the show that we made Yeah Yup as hard as I think it's the most art department friendly show I've ever been on as far as being encouraging to the art department to come up with things in to Try anything that you want to try and then beside please hold. Oh no wrong or whatever but I don't know for me for self. It was the most fun gybed and I would. I would like losing graphics. There's a lot there's freedom I mean just because it's written on the page and then you expand so much on it and I'd like to add to what Graham said. I think we all have freedom to do our jobs and do them correctly and sure there are times where you've been yes where we've been shot down and maybe it wasn't the best idea that we came up within the meeting and maybe somebody else had a better idea but you know what everybody goes along with it. Nobody fights now and no ass because there's no assets he doesn't hire astle. We like to just have a good time working together. Yeah I do I think is important. I think you're saying what's the last thing I I really do. Think the show in two thousand five years is a thing. It's actually nothing to do with the art department. It's Janet's con costume. Like you could put Janet's costume on a mannequin. And you would know what this show is a you know what I. I'm actually going to slightly disagree. I'm going to bet in twenty five years. What am I going to remember? There are going to be graphics for sale on Ebay. That's just like another show that I know. I wish I wish I had just one penny for every one of those totally right. That sounds I am I. You got to put it in your contract right now. Hey Man I've got a framed piece as it does to the wall of the sunflower parks and REC than I'm just waiting for the twins college fund the kicking. I think the I tonic. Thing of this show is probably Janet. I think you're right or no. I think I think it's just the dynamic of Christian and Michael something something in that is dynamic and remember bill and probably will be duplicated on other shows. I can duplicate the clock on the wall to do what you're told saying. Why does it some Jeremy Very Tattoos? Now what about the cookbook? I mean other persons cookbook. I think too that Yogurt Yogurt Yogurt God willing will be a place at universal back. Lot In twenty five years like the falling apart lions states gates from by the future. I feel like if I look up. Y Y Y Tattoo right now I can find a million of them and the fact that you're telling me Jeremy Bernie or I think Graham Graham has assault beat because he's got all these graphics on a hard drive right now. That's at his whim. I'm going to miss the good place and we too are eighty G. Words is the first weekend of February. I think it's the third to first. So we're hoping anyone. Who's out there? Who's a voter? Who's listening to this? Just give us. Just you know what you heard it. You heard are those and all of our triumphs here. We worked really hard and so and we're really proud of our work so this was a mostly for the viewers of of the show and We hope you're we know you're watching if you've watched the show but Thank you so much to every you guys coming over and have a party with me Graham.

Yeah Ian What did you just finished up a just finished a movie in Oklahoma story about four families and a tornado that brings them all together. cold and Oklahoma and windy called and Willie or you know what I think. It'll be a fun movie. What's it called? It's called thirteen minutes. Okay Nice bags at how much time you have. That is exactly how much before a tornado hits kind of scary but then again we live in California where we get zero. So Adam what are you doing? I'm on a movie called the problem. Hopefully out in November of next year based on a Broadway musical. Is it about a problem? It's about three actually three problems. Is there dancing and a lot of paltrow?

We gave you some insight. Little tidbits actually had to edit out to suburbs of US speaking because I think we got a little too into future episodes or might have given something away and I didn't want that to happen.

Mother sends son to buy groceries, he returns with wife

"Hello AND WELCOME TO T. I'm taft and I'm Elliott. Test Elliott argue each week. We bring a list individually of weird news stories and headlines that we found Cher them and attempts to make Tessa laugh. Yes doesn't take much for tested. The laugh it takes me a little bit. Heartier hard shelled a crack. Yeah or or just if a male says something that he thinks is funny female dies. It'd probably came from the mail right. Well I mean amy. Schumer is not funny. I know that name. Another female comedian. I cannot weird I can't either I can I choosing not to anyway. Do you WANNA go first. You want me to go for scalpers all right. We just watched last week. The tire woods peyton manning. Tom Brady Phil Mickelson. Golf game dead. I loved it you you did. I slept through. It didn't well you slept before it started so yes it was great. It live events forgot how much I miss like. A live event like that is just using only putter. Man Wins Arizona amateur event. Oh for everything. How does don't you need like a driver would think you would think. And like one of those Walker. He bought at a golf course at A. What Mini Golf Course? No nobody was from like a pawnshop. Oh yeah so. It wasn't even like normal. Putter buddy. One. Yeah wow yeah like an amateur winning anything. He didn't sponsored for anything. I don't think so but it was so I know like you're pretty individual when it comes to Gulf. How do you become a Pro Golfer? You Win Oh so can anyone. Just going into these pro tournaments. You can't enter the pro perfect you can't the PGA tournament play like amateur. Yeah right so you like well like any profession you would you have your good high school. What do you do you do in college right? It's the same thing right. People get recruited to go play in College. All the time. Do they you? Of course any sport really. Yeah and then. If they're good enough they can play amateur for awhile. Means which is what you're doing if you're playing in college collegiate right. You can't accept any money or anything Right and then once you when you win or when you place in a tournament you get points like you get like place for finishing in this place so many points for finishing in that place and if you humiliate enough points you qualify to try out for like the PGA stuff And if you do well enough you can qualify to get your card. Your license essentially come professional. Okay so okay all right. I just wondering Italian word. I didn't know I didn't know. Yeah I mean in theory you can just go. I mean they have events where you can sign up to play but like it usually walk on people I would assume or not like the very untypical way of joining the PGA. Because if you're that good you're trying to get don't get on great and people who are like if you do bad enough like throughout the season you can lose your eligibility. Oh you don't have enough points to qualify for things. What is Golf's when his golf season? It's like spring to fall okay. It's really based around. They have four major tournaments. The four majors master. No no no. The masters is not a major and major is like the biggest of big okay the US Open. That's different every year is at a different place. British open it's the same place every year is open. Never been in Ohio. I don't know okay. I'm sure it probably has just wanting the masters that's at the same place and the Players Championship. That's also different. So the masters in the British Open always in the same. The same course champions typically changes and so does the British earned this. You mean the US Open's always at a different course too so but then there's like then we like the memorial tournament which is what we have in Columbus right but that's not like a tournament but it's not like the biggest of biggs ray so there's some smaller places that like tire comes in place here all the time because the Corsair in Columbus is owned by Jack Nicklaus who arguably the best golf forever. I mean Tiger and Tiger and Jack You. That's the argument. Who's better than who Jack technically has more majors? Yeah and Tiger too. I think I think he has seventeen entire fifteen. Oh but from tire was. He was getting them so quickly. Yeah that they were like well. Of course he's GonNa like be or be Jack then he had that whole like itching runs thing. Well Yeah Yeah now. His back is really bad. Yeah so it's just help it. It's unlikely to help beat Jack. I mean unlikely. It might happen. I mean he played really good golf last week. Did he was shocking. Because the last time he played was pretty bad. Yeah his back is really bothered him like a lot so all right anyway as a way. Merck Golf Golf Corner with Alliot. Supermom spotted on Minnesota Lake with fifty six ducklings in so this mom real mom no. It's a Duck Mumba. Yeah she's got fifty six ducklings so she must have there must have been other duck moms who did not live he adopted. Yes which is the exact opposite problem at my parents because they wanNA talk with their or less ducks ducklings there those are key so fucking Geezer like the nastiest bird ever. Yeah I don't care makes me sad marines. Higher Falconer to thwart segel's that are hazing recruits have bootcam- isn't the whole fucking point. Seal seagulls shitting on recruits edgy spoke to Chevron recruits. That's what I thought part of hazing like Oh shit we. This is what we wanted and now it's too far. We can't stop. This is lily. A FALCON FALCONER. That comes and kill seagulls. His often said the seagulls. Well listen to me. That's hilarious goes were there. I literally there shitting on marine bryk recruits. I mean green recruits. Get on a lot to lots of different people. What talk about a can never have done? I could never have been in the horses at all in any capacity. Yeah never so hats off thank you for yes. I could never have done up definitely. I couldn't either. You just think the people that could yeah. Man recreates Disney theme park in his living room using Lego. I feel like that's something you would want to do. It would allow you most definitely. That's like well I feel like that's something you would. You'd be like. We could do that and then he would never actually do it like that Disney wall. You're going to do our Disney trip in December. It's what June now. Yeah wow nailed. It are like our wedding photo album nailed. That know. I always have these grand plans and I just got it all through weird. A New York City breaks a record. What is it? New York City breaks record fifty eight straight days with no pedestrian deaths. Because nobody's walking they. There's a live feed of Times Square. Yeah and even now still like I checked it yesterday. Yeah there's nobody in times where it's crazy goes down. Yeah it's really kinda crazy. Have their deaths and stuff gone down? Yeah Oh good yeah but my understanding is like in the places where they let all these people out of jail like thieving gone up like robberies have gone up like Sucks I'M I? Yeah the answer. There's just not because the jails are so horrible places pools well and then you've got the people that are like so let them and it's like they're people to you say that like and there's also guards also innocent people that are there to like also that Lori because we're really bad of that or people that are you know got picked up for low level offenses. Yeah any hey yeah anyway. Social Justice Warriors. The two of us be. We're not to church in Australia. Selling Bleach as corona virus as a coronavirus treatment. Find One hundred and fifty one thousand dollars. That's crazy so they put it in a in like a nose like quarter thing up your nose. Ooh remember that girl that Gypsy show you to watch her? That dumb ass was brushing teeth bleach. Yeah she's just a little bit on my teeth my tongue out four years ago but yeah. I can't taste any one time our president. Hey no and Jackson bleach or something or understand how I just don't don't I don't understand only we could the skin and put a light in our inter a UV. Light up my by now. When do you think you're GONNA sit down at a restaurant again realistically? When do you see yourself going into a restaurant and sitting down rather it's a regular traditional restaurant or even a quick service honestly? I don't know yeah I don't either. I just barely liked going to restaurants anyway right lake and if we can pick it up and take it home. I would much rather eat at home. Yeah I would too like I. It's just like you're just sitting there and you're waiting in like if I want to refill. I can just go like sure. I don't know I the older I get the more I'm like. Do we have to like we have to go out or I think so too? Yeah Rush Ron. To seat mannequins at empty tables to make social distancing less awkward. Oh that makes that makes him more awkward for me. In what way does it make it less awkward? I don't know it doesn't make any good. That's just like do you. They filter in like like noise right into speakers in the audience with like pro wrestling could fill that pro wrestling thing is crazy. Watch it is so. I'm not a wrestling fan. At all. Right knowledge wrestling is very limited. I I'm not going to crap wrestling I. I think it's five into it. Everyone it's just not a thing I ever ever into a kid. I was literally like the one kid that didn't watch any wrestling but anyway when you watch the wrestling. They're doing right now in these big places with no people. It is so weird. Yeah it's so terrible because they're acting like there's crowds there and you gave a watch. The actors like reacting to some of the other wrestlers. Yeah and like they're laughing because they're just it's so ridiculous. Yeah because it's over the top it just so we it does not work. It's doesn't work. It's one of those things where like like you. We listened to Jimmy Fallon and it was so awful. I already thought. Jimmy Fallon was pretty borderline but I thought I thought they were things that he says that are fighting like he has funny skits and things like that. But it's so weird. The best of the late night shows yeah are Houston Conan was really good. I really want like Craig Ferguson. Show but they were a little different. I think that's what I like that humor. Most traditional late night shows that monologue is rough a reason. Why the Colbert Stephen? Colbert is not nearly as good as he was on Kobe report. Yeah Lake it's just not as I don't know yeah and it doesn't I don't think it translates but yeah the like some needs. The laugh track and wrestling needs an audience. Yeah I I need a schedule like I need a routine. Right it's just the mannequin. Thing is just a man. Can Things Weird not an? I don't think it's a good idea. That's of like they used to sell these things and they probably still do. But it was like driving driving buddies. And you put this thing. In your it's like a mannequin almost. But it's for women to us when they go driving by themselves. I've never heard of. Oh my gosh yeah well your guy but you like make a dummy and put it look like you've got another person with you. Yeah I don't know if it worked or they've been like sell them or anything like that. I've never heard of that. That's crazy I mean I know I get it. I know people. Think of all the solutions to solve PR- violence against women except you west guns teaching now not to beat your women but whatever anyway. German cafe makes customers where swimming noodle hats to enforce social distancing. That's pretty good has again. It's kind of funny.

They chose the ending. Good yeah good good. Good Adam Sandler Call Jim Carey from the theater during. Sonic to tell him how funny he goes. We'll see very funny. Sonic I thought. He played the role very well. I like Jim Carrey as an actor. Yeah I think he really gets into his roles like series of a a series of unfortunate events. The first movie yeah is not very good. It's not very good. It's not Jim Carey's fault Jim Carey Carey. Jimmy meaning is like the shining light of that. Yeah it's not his fault that that movie was terrible was trying to cram three books until one movie right so like I like Jim Carrey. I think jim carry's pretty good overall. He sounds like a kind of a crazy guy. In general I think he's got a couple of mental health issues. Sure but like most people that are like that typically have some type of underlying psychosis to them has what makes them like out. Good at that that specific thing right. I think he's good.

Episode 19: Sister Act 3: Moon Knight

"Yeah you re body and welcome to build when Frankie pop culture. I am frank and with me as always is bill bill. How're you doing? I'm doing well cited for the fall all TV premiere season which is upon us so billy never thought we'd get here. Were this episode nineteen. We're on the run the eve of episode so twenty well. I mean in reality it. This is episode like twenty two because we have some bonuses that we threw in their right but it cannon right right episode nineteen right and as Nerds we have to be we have to stick to Canon of course. I never thought we'd get this far. I thought we'd get to like seven yeah. I thought we get to seven. We we get sick of each other's bullshit and diva egos and be done but this has been this has been quite a journey in a lot of fun so I'm looking forward to the next nineteen. Actually this would probably be Stephen King's favorite episode because Asu nineteen. This episode has mystical powers for all your dark tower fans. It's it's all nineteen Maryland Ramo so so to make it even more special because it's the fall premiere television division season and this is going to be a very TV centric episode. We have the master and I don't say this. I I don't throw this term out there loosely bill we have the master of full premier TV TV watching himself J. B. John beaver welcome back John. Yeah thank you guys some become like a three demand booth here. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing but I'm happy to be back around three. It's great. It's well. It's worth every time so far. There's a spike in listenership whenever you're around John All right. I don't know that's just that's true or not. But if it is a warms my heart all right so we got a lot talk about what's going on everybody strapping open wide and let's start the show guy so just when we thought we were seeing the the wind down the never ending story part three. Disney verse Sony for the love of Spiderman That's theirs to Colin's in that title. That's what the Bush the never ending story Colon Disney verse Sony Colon for the love of Spiderman a memoir. That's not that far off from the way. They handled the accident so anyway so we got some more news. They'll want you take that. One is getting kind of hard to to keep up with it when there's so many people throwing growing theories out there it's hard. It's getting hard to decipher what has any credibility but today we got or yesterday. We got even further credible news. That apple is becoming a major player here. apple wants to get into the streaming world. They're launching their own sort of high prestige TV series about a good morning talk show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon but they need the library. They need a library badly and Sony's a great one. So apple is in the hunt for buying Sony what that means for us web heads this is in the Spiderman. Ip contract that. Sony has if they sell to anybody. spider-man's movie rights automatically revert back tomorrow. That's not just spiderman that spider man spider verse so that's then I'm more BS and all the other spider universe people so apple could literally save all you know if they decide to buy Sony before you react to that. Also we get news today day. That marvel is concerned Marvel Disney since Disney has billions of dollars in their couch cushions. They're considering buying just outright. buyings Spiderman writes back from Sony the speculation. I read today in variety which is a pretty reputable place is that Sony would ask for ten billion with a B. dollars. No Way Marvel would pay that but it would be a starting point. and I honestly like I feel like it'd be worth it. I mean I feel like if they got him. Down to five or six billion dollars probably be worth it. It'd be amazing that spider demand himself would sell for more than Disney bought Lucasfilm for which unbelievable but well what did what did far from home. Make far from home made need over billion dollars about one point eight billion. It's the it's the highest grossing I mean. He's never been more popular yeah. It's it's pretty it's a that's a big number to me. I don't know what you guys think. I'd I'd love to hear you think one at a time but to me. The Apple News seems to me has the ring of credibility to make sense. It's an apple. They're not gonNA have time to build up some big original library. They need somebody's library to make their streaming service attractive. It makes that makes sense to me why I think you know that makes total sense but I I when I first saw this going around. The first first thing I thought was because besides spiderman the only other thing Sony has that's worth. Anything is probably the only thing that's kept. The company viable for the last. However many years is is the playstation? I thought I was figuring Sony wanted a apple wanted to get in on the on the the console market because they are launching that Apple Arcade. You know it would be the apple. Computers aren't the best thing to game on you know so if they could have a at a console legitimate console to their to their your portfolio. I it makes sense. I can totally see this happening. I mean I feel like apples been hoarding cash and looking for the looking for this big huge purchase for the last ten years and I think it's I mean I think it's one that probably makes sense for everybody. Everybody Yeah I mean I'm curious if they would be like straight up by the whole company or just buying the film studio and the and the Catalog Dog you know there's obviously these weird writes things you know as the reason they would that the spiderman go to Disney is because if Sony gets sold that was part of the contract with marvel sold rights spiderman to Sony you know because it would just be kind of a studio going one electronics company to another electronics company and it would just be kind of odd. They're just divert that way but Sony obviously does not seem to have a upcoming platform of the NBC does and Obviously Disney with this class on Warner Brothers as well so oh they're cow lesser planning launching their own streaming APP and that would be just wage raise streaming APPs. I'm not sure how many people are actually going to be willing to pay for this point. and it kind of makes sense to me at minimum. They might want to offload their studio products because I just don't know this is the kind of business that a bunch of Japanese Japanese corporation corporate head. Honcho guys really want to be in anymore especially given that you know as you said really the only thing that they have going for it. Movie me wise is Spiderman. I can see why they're asking so much so I've been looking at. What's on what movie franchises? Sony may have. They actually have a few things that could be viable. James Bond being one the gemology franchise which is alive and well is. Sony men in black is Sony I. I know that the last movie tanked but it's still a viable. Ip the Robert Langdon series from Dan Brown is Sony the girl and the spiders the girl with Dragon Tattoo that is Sony the karate kid the dark tower from Stephen King Charlie's angels underworld. These are all so those are those are all you're right. Those are all like you know well known Kaiser's but here's the question or any of those French takes spiderman out of that that portfolio now are those franchises that a studio can exist on without a spiderman especially sorry I was just today especially because the bond rights in particular are really weird because they are technically owned by that like brought Barbara Broccoli like the people who own the original ones that connery sit sit their kids and so it has to do with distribution rights internationally versus. The states was not straight up ownership the way some other ones and that's probably most valuable. Ip besides despite yeah they have a Dumont although I mean there's that movie made a billion dollars which is unbelievable but here's why I think it's viable. I don't think think any of those franchises outside of bond really maybe if Dan Brown continues to write Robert Langdon books and they rebuilt it with a different actor. I don't know I don't know if the Dragon Tattoo has any life but what makes viable isn't making new movies. It's apple would be able to put all of these movies that people loved at one point on their streaming service so people can watch the underworld movies. Watch the karate kid movies watch the dark tower on who will watch direct our I don't but some people might and then I'm reading the article here like John's like Frank said a minute ago the other attractive thing is the video game rights that Sony Sony has not just the video game console stuff but the movie rights to uncharted which is postal star. Tom Holland the resident evil. Stuff is Sony Mike so bats value. I mean it's as far as libraries that are left that are viable that somebody can purchase. I feel like they're right up there Komo. Be You know the best ones left yeah I I would say you know like playstation does have playstation does have playstation vue which she's like their own live TV streaming service I. I'm not familiar with it like intimately so I don't know if they've got the the library included in that or not. I don't even know how good the services but show. I I mean that exists to. I don't know if anybody gives a fuck about that. If if it was it worth bringing up but I just thought it it was time for everybody to hear my voice ghostbusters to just really met yet which Jason Reitman turns the franchise around after the failed reboot that could be that could be of some valuable. Ip as well yeah exactly so I'm not sure you know back to me has the biggest ring of truth to it. I'm not sure I see marvel ponying up ten and billion that seems astronomical but if it comes down to the four five billion range like it's not like Disney can't afford it so and it would be smart but who knows man so far there there. I pee purchases. We really have to see how the Fox one pans out. It actually hasn't started very well but that's also because everything is just leftovers from when it was still Fox production company but there are other. IBP have all worked out you know Pixar are buying it outright marble. Lucasville those have all been successful so I would imagine they're going to continue down this path and I would imagine that apple and other companies are going to emulate them if they have the cash flow which have free much more casual than any other company on the planet right what else we got frank so the other thing. I think we wanted to touch on was there was some news release that we know oh how we're going to see dead pull for the first time in the MC you and yeah I mean it's it's it's interesting. I don't know that I expected it. and I'm not talking about he'll be he'll be introduced. The same way J Jonah Jameson was at the end the far from home in a post credits scene. I thought thought that all along but that this is going to be a different dead pull from a different universe not meaning that he'll act act any differently but he won't come with you know the history of the I two deadpool films right which I think is probably the way to go. I mean they want to as much as we love the dead pool films and honestly love sort of a supporting cast of that anytime arena backer and gets work. I'm a fan of it but it's probably smarter them to distance themselves as much as possible. From Anything Fox did Fox's I mean the bad taste taste in people's mouths. Were Fox really other than deadpool and Logan. I guess it's really been bad for quite a while so I get that you know there's nothing they can do about Ryan Reynolds's face you know that's GonNa be familiar to people but they can distance themselves from whatever continuity continuity they've built. Unfortunately it probably means. We don't get to see Josh Brolin his cable again which Kinda sucks but I also so kind of get them not wanting to use him as cable considering we just had him as you know. It was one thing when they were separate studios and he was playing cable the same time but yeah. I'm a little surprised that they sort of let us know how they were going to do. It doesn't doesn't make a comment about that and deadpool two yeah I think he does. He knows I did read in the article which is funny is that marvel is GonNa. Let him sort of wink. Wink acknowledged his past with Fox the way he does which which will be funny. Hopefully they'd like let him carry over his like obsessing obsession with Hugh Jackman and all those running gags but it strikes me as the smart way to do things I mean I just I if it means that he's going to be a fully integrated character into the rest of the MC you or with the rest of the mutants I'm perfectly okay with it me too. What do you think John I don't. I don't know how necessary it is only because deadpool play pretty fast awesome loose with the continuity of the Fox films in the first place and my biggest concern about deadpool in particular being purchased by Disney is that they try turn into PG thirteen eighteen on which I'm not a fan of because his knees proclivity for not really wanting to have that hard are kind of stuff which this does not fix ex- you know obviously there were a lot of references to you know x men. Wolverine especially in the second one and things like that but you know colossus was a character her who had also been a character in x two and basically they made no acknowledgment of his previous history next to in any way so it wasn't like the continuity was really a strong gene ran through through the first two deadpool movies so I'm not I wasn't overly concerned in the first place. The continuity wouldn't make sense I don't think there's any way really to proceed lead with this character without Ryan Reynolds obviously they they can't reboot deadpool. They know that so whatever works for them at at the end of the day I mean I I don't think that obviously the MC you being interconnected has been essential to it but I think deadpool movies can continue to work owned by Disney without being interrelated that being said I obviously would love to see some of the characters pop the deadpool movie more so than I think I wanNA see deadpool Geico pop up in like a spiderman movie because I think that would kind of actually bruin illusion but I would love on the other side of town hall and showed up in a dental movie and just took piss himself that be hilarious. They are saying right now that deadpool in later both slotted to be are I. I mean that could change of course they could back off that get cold feet but that's what they're saying now. I don't think they will people go nuts. If deadpool is kid. I think really making him. A different deadpool is just so in case people are like well. Why isn't he mentioning Vanessa wisely mentioning. Whoever the CABDRIVER DOPE hinder gender they can say this is why that's it. I think the more what and what John Sort of alluded to is the more interesting question is where they they say he's going to you know marvel sort of let it slip that he's going to pop up in two thousand twenty one so we kind of know what the releases are in two thousand twenty one the article that Franken I read had seen they seem to put their bets on him popping up at the end of for love and thunder. Which is actually the end of phase for What do you guys think I mean. I think it would definitely definitely be a post credits scene. Most likely I don't think it would be anything in the actual Louis right and I wouldn't even be surprised if it's not even actually directed by Tyco what td is no involved evolve with is one of those like we used to direct some of the good the the singers but I think I don't think we're going to see a lot of mutins. Besides maybe maybe some subtle or overt references to them in the movies but I don't think rationally. GonNa see them unless it's GonNa be in stingers and things like that. I don't think they're going to be involved in the plot outlines of none of the things we saw announced at comic con at all. Can we just for a second. Can we reflect on the possibility of a Tyke. Tychy latinity directed deadpool movie. It'd be weird. It'd be fucking awesome. I just wondering I mean if he does if they do position Deadpool as like the post discredit Stinger to four. That's like that's like the last thing of that's a pretty big spot. That's like the hammer face four because after that it's face five yeah I agree we even knew if as five is now we know that for love and thunder is the last movie in phase four I mean I think we have to assume that Black Panther and Captain Marvel are GonNa get additional sequels audience we guardians three which is not doc is gonNA come out and face five which also would be comedic -ly an appropriate vehicle to have a standard. I think either thor or guardians as far has the type of movie they are which fit best and going back to what you said. Frank I think because take a because apparently has really good at bringing out you know improvisational national performances as we saw with Hemsworth never been better than he wasn't worth Iraq so I think she'd be actually great at it because I think he'd bring out the best and Ryan Reynolds not we had an argument created in the first two already so good at it totally so the last piece to close out our discussion as last week Johnnie as you know because you're a loyal listener bill and I went to twitter and said hey twitter who do you WanNa see cast as Moon Knight because bill and I both agree that this is a pretty important casting or could be and you know our our twitter followers didn't disappointed I want to say again. Moonlight is not a broad. I like. It's not a character. Everybody in the world is familiar with its ally to me reminds me a lot of when they launched guardians of the galaxy like Peter Quilt needed it to be nailed casting wise for that to work and they nailed it. You know it's you know Ironman thor the these these are characters that yes it's great that they nailed the casting but these are well known characters that people sort of know their characteristics with M- night he's so niche like whoever whoever they get really has to knock it out of the park it has to be right and I'll take it a step further and say Moon Knight has been very inconsistently recently written in characterize within the comic books for pretty much since his at the outset he was actually introduced as a villain and then he was in a a lot of serious grim gritty comics and then more recently. He's been you know. It's been more about eight. Oh his mental health issues yeah he's been all over the manly ah some hyper violent comics in any Ed like the Bendix Ryan which was almost Kinda goofy so really it's a lot of it depends appropriate casting on what tone they're. GonNa try and hit. Is it going to be like the daredevil series where it's going to be like a real gritty street level series or is it going to be more about you know his mental instability which I think would be a very different show require different actor to pull that off me too so this is what our this is what our listener said so I tag Dr Tony Ortega on this one and I I. I think he thought I was recommending that he be midnight in his response was I hi can play crazy just not whiteside gender and heterosexual and then I think he realized I wasn't asking him to play midnight in. He's he came back and said channing tatum interesting all he's never gotten his gambling movie off the ground so I guess this is shot number two. He is also kind of falling on off the map. Since twenty two jump street we had what what is the lasting channing tatum did. I don't even know he spent the better like a a better part of a half decade trying to get that game movie main move now. It's never going to happen. I I'm sure he's I think he's going to all of this in production and stuff which may or may not have worked out for him but Franken a couple of weeks ago took a poop all over the Jupiter Jupiter ascending after three three four four five years ago that was supposed to be the start of another franchise which didn't really work in Netflix Keith recommending it to me. I'm like I don't know what it is. I watch Netflix he thinks I don't know anybody watches on Netflix. That's what movie they want to say. We got a lot of Kiana Jonah Reeves. He's my is my favourite. He's my favorite pick as well I think he could. It's weird you know it's very weird because we just spent like a couple the minutes talking about how the actor really needs to nail it and Moon Knight's got the DISA- disability of personality disorder and all that and you really need it actor with some range range. KEANU REEVES IS I love him but is not known for range so it's an interesting i. I don't know why I think it's so well. I think I think if they I think they go with counties. It's going to have to be like the dark and gritty midnight so that one you know that we got quite a few of does one of our most loyal followers. Her name is more gain. Kt atmore gain kt on twitter twitter. She said Joseph Gordon Levitt and I was like wow I never thought of that but that could be really good. That's a great pick the John. What the Hell Happened Joseph Gordon Levitt I I think again I think he got involved in some production kind of stuff and he tried tried to get that he had the weird productivity. TV production thing that never really took off and then he just honestly been stuff where he I think he's trying to work with interesting directors but the the things have just bombed you know like that tyrod movie with the Robertson Meccas movie just to just work using that lousy Oliver Stone movie about a about Snowden is actually very good at it. Yeah I don't. I'm not just not Oliver Stone Fan but I think he just and then he was also trying to get salmon off the ground and that didn't work out either so you know I think it's cut now. You've got to after his listed three that. I have tried to get a complex thing off the ground. It worked out for them so that's why they're popping up to now. He's now. He's podcasting just like us the laughter life through Tom Hardy out there. I feel you can throw Tom Hardy off exactly and it weren't that seems doc ID huge longshot especially with with him and ban on. Here's another one here's another one that really that really. I never thought of but it could work because I think there's another guy that's tasked to being a superhero movie. At some point our friends over at the coach do d'oro parlay our podcast said armie hammer well. He's another one he's on that list to John. I mean there was a lot of rumors of being green lantern in Justice League movie. I feel like there was something else that he was attached to a compromise for awhile. I think he's actually wasn't he actually cast in the in George Miller's Justice League movie that was like two days from shooting. Yes I think you're right. I think he was superman. Superman US something he's been certainly has the look for a of use leading man hero type I've never I haven't seen that movie we know that got nominated for the Oscar last year with the with the candidate so I like. Rem always great in a in a social network as I remember people pitching him to play Steve Rogers back in the day which wouldn't have been crazy. Now I mean he has a look for that too and he's he's still got tall. Yeah I still think Gotcha I still think Chuck's brother-in-law should have been captain. America Captain Awesome Captain Ause cheers to comics podcast ask throughout a sadistic split James mcavoy. I don't think it's too close to the x men also. I also don't see I don't. I don't find him intimidating but he said he's pretty. It was pretty fucked up split. Yeah be so tight. I guess I mean it could good work I. I had another thought What do you guys think about Jon Hamm Different. Take a lot older so be a little more of like seasoned and yeah I I think Jon Hamm's missed the missed the boat yeah he's no older than Kiana reeves these younger gotta make to be quite honest. I can't believe he hasn't been in something to this to this point. I think he could. I don't know I think his I think his comic sensibilities could actually help depending goal which way they go with the character and he's certainly got the Chisel jaw line Chris Chavez at n nerds zero four said he was really hoping it was going to be kit. Get Harry Tin but me too but he's happy nonetheless. It'll get to see him. In Eternal. I kind of feel like the Black Knight announcement was a letdown. I would've loved love to see kit as midnight. I was one hundred percent convinced that comparison was going to be Wolverine like convinced body type wise theatric probably Pittsburgh Wolverine. He's small. He's got them semi beard thing going on so so that my favorite one guy is my favorite one. I know you're both in Shit on this that somebody throughout today and I wouldn't have you given me a hundred opinions. I never would hit this button as soon as somebody said it. I was like yes Shiloh booth yeah. I knew I knew you were going to say that because I saw that I saw all that come across and I would be I would be in on that. I think he is sort of a denial but I think he's he's is really not. He has D nozzle yet. He's a Douche. I mean he acts like but he's he's got talent. He's there's no. There's no doubt doubt about that. I mean the MCI has stayed very far away from quote Unquote Difficult Actors Ray in the two that they had Ed Norton and Carrots Howard. They unloaded after one movie so if has turned his mental state around and easy game team to get with the program and kind of be frankly accompanied man which he wasn't with the transformers movies by the time the third one came around. I think he'd actually would be pretty good because he's he actually is a really good actor. I I think you saw this movie. You saw that he was in his tank movie. Were to recall. Fury also really good with with if you're interested and he was really good in it. You know using this like other thing. I saw him like this. Western we we. I think Tom Hardy within two really good in that as well. He's actually a really good actor. Just an Asshole I I actually didn't move review a couple of weeks ago for a movie that's out in limited release right now called peanut butter. Falcon and he was fucking sensational in it it was it was a very of mice and men ish kind of story where he sort of befriend. Zick a kid with down syndrome and it was was he was so good like reminded me that he's really good actor and I think you know as far as his career where it is now. I think he'd be you know. As far as the opportunities has this would be a good opportunity for him whereas Kiana got a lot going on and and might not be as available. Obviously Tom Hardy's pretty much much in the non start with him being venom stuff like that but so whereas I think shy would actually be someone might be keen on this opportunity. They need the money so just officially moving forward. I want you a proclaiming right now. I'm on the Sheila Booth Train for Moon Knight well. I don't know if anybody tweeted tweeted this at US frank but I was on twitter today. Looking at what people are saying about midnight and one of the things that made my pants feel a little tighter was people people are suggesting. Janssen echoes as a candidate which would make very happy man is. It looks like his onscreen brother has got a television role lined up so he has to get one lined up to yeah exactly yeah. What's that role that he's playing. We'll reboot of Walker Texas ranger. Oh Yeah right jared. That's a good that's gonNA. That's GONNA do well. They're eliminating the Texas. Ranger part of the show will just be called Walker but it's an interesting. It's an interesting choice so build you remember last week. You made a comment about how crazy some of Dr fans slash twitter followers are so probably are craziest listener at Lewis Underscore Ream Whoopie Goldberg as Moon Knight Yeah Yeah that'd be that'd be a very different take unconventional yesterday unconventional mentioned. She's going to be busy though next year. Why she's she was cast as she's in just mother? Abigail understand that's right. I have to say with Moon Knight because because he's his character has been so so inconsistent he is one of the characters I think I would least mind if they'd made some major changes in casting like I would not be at all opposed to a good. You know black actor or something like that. I think this is one of the ones where I don't think that there's a lot of sort of continuity that they have to live up to so I think the expectation exactly he turned like sort of the same way with the terminals like it's cool to the cast all these people but like nobody has any idea whether any of that castings accurate like no one cares. That's why attorneys was such a good. It's time for Marvel. That's one of them. One of them is is either Gayer by you know. Kumail Nangiani is obviously Pakistani like so that was they took that opportunity and ran with it. They could do the same with midnight. What do you guys think the chances are that they go with flights an unknown Charlie Cox or a you know a Michael Coulter like level I think I think the chances are pretty high like they could definitely do that. I think they've earned the benefit of the doubt that if like some unknown comes into audition room and just crushes it than we should trust. Ross them but that being said I mean there's so much nerd love around this series that I feel like it's going to be somebody. I have a feeling somebody with a name. I don't know why but I I do. I feel the same way about she. Actually I know won't be Whoopi Goldberg now. We'll although wouldn't it be crazy if they cast. Whoopi Goldberg as Moon Knight and then in the last episode it was revealed that was all the whole thing was sister act three three Sister Act Three Moon Knight but speaking of black actors taking on historically white comic book roles I saw today or yesterday might have been last night there rumors. They're heavily considering actor's name. Yeah Jeffrey Right to Play Commissioner Gordon in the Batman I really liked Jeffrey Wright as an actor I don't know I I have such a image of what Commissioner Gordon is supposed to look like in my head and that that one to me is tough. As much as I think he's a great actor. I have a hard time divorcing myself from like the typical sort of moustachioed glasses white guy. I mean essentially Gary Oldman essentially looked exactly like what. I imagined Jim going to look like yeah he did but I mean. It's not just amazing because he looked exactly what I thought. Sirius Blackwood look like Yeah Gary Oldman's quite a chameleon but I don't know what do you. How do you feel about Jeffey right. I don't know what when I first saw it. I was like I feel like this this next this next. Batman Franchise is whatever it's going to be. It's going to be so different and if they're doing the Nawar thing and I kind of like it. I mean he's awesome after he's a he's a super he's. He's a super cool actor. I I don't actually I don't have a problem with it. I don't think I have a problem with it. I'm I'm a liberal and you know me build Gordon's one of my favourite ancillary characters in comic books. I you know to me. It's it's not to be a good Gordon. It's more about the actor being solid than you know in a red head and having a mustache and what do you think John. You know. Just I want Jeffrey does it. I don't want him to play his standard. Jeffrey Wright character which is this like very mellow laconically back guy like he was when he was Felix lighter in the bond movies and kind of Westworld and the even is in like the second the hunger games movie. I think Gordon needs a little more personality than that and he he tends if play the sport of Nuri professor kind of character. I don't really want him to be that way because that's not that doesn't it. Gordon but he's a good enough actor. I think he has arranged it just that those are the roles even recently the kind of pop out to me so again. I don't think this this is a character where I've like has to be a white male. You know that's that's not you know. He's a very kind of character but not to that point you. You know we're just I think it would do to totally throw throw the movie off so I'm not not opposed to it. you know they also somewhat depends how integral integral. Gordon is the plot and how we whether it's more like the J. K. Simmons gone or it's going to be more like a a real me media role. Gary Oldman had I agree with that. I do think he's yeah. He's got a he's got a play different that he normally plays for sure and if it's a director noir thing like we're being told it is. I feel like Gordon will be fairly prominent I do too. He's also very prominent in you know in Batman Year one and Batman the long Halloween which seems like long Halloween is going to be a touchstone for this movie as it was for Batman begins ends so so I think he is going to be someone integral to the to the PLA is not just going to be kind of your show up at the bat signal offer a couple of scenes in that's it so I'm speaking of Batman. I'm really interested to hear what both you guys think about. The recent Jonah Hill News well when that news first came out that he was talking to Matt raise about being in the movie people were sort of speculating what villain he would play most people thinking. He was either going to be penguin a ridler. I certainly came. I came down. Penguins side not just because physically I feel like it's more of a match but I don't know I just saw saw him as penguin more but then we got sort of confirmation today that he is in talks to play the riddler which God I don't know I don't know I don't know if I like that. just sort of the Joan. Hill vibe doesn't really doesn't really scream ridler to me. I don't know aw I will say Jonah. Hill surprise me like three or four different times now in his weird career so I'm certainly not gonNA write it offer. Kill it but it's not it's not who I was imagining for the ridler Johnny Yeah. I'm not opposed because I do liked Jonah Hill. I think he's been very good as a serious actor in a way I really didn't expect there. You'll be able to pull off. I love Super Bad but I pretty much. I thought that was what Jonah Hill could do is be EMESA throw again and he's actually managed to really diversify his career and eat and do some really interesting things that I've I've enjoyed so but I very much agree with you bill. This is not what I pictured for the Ridler and it's not you know doc nothing that he's done is Bruce Afar leasing to believe he'd be particularly good in the role but nothing that he's done his career. Let me let me to believe he'd be as good as he wasn't moneyball so alive. It could just be that. I'm I'm not giving him enough credit yeah. That's that's pretty much where I fall like. It's not just his whole. Even even something is weird is like his voice doesn't work for me as the Ridler but I dunno I can certainly you know Oh. I've been wrong a lot so I mean I'm not. I'm not above admitting I'm wrong. Once it comes out. Would you guys watch that blink and you missed it netflixing. I think he was in with Emma Stone he was really weird off the wall which pleasingly that someone some casting agent or Matt raise watched it and thought that's why he. CBS Good is the ridler because he definitely like this kind of depressed semi psychotic guy he had to do a lot of different roles goals in it because the plot of the movie involved going into their minds and reenacting these like lives and memories that they had so I I don't know I. I just think it's a really weird weird angle to come out with the casting me to agree what Frank. What do you think you're the big bad head yeah. I don't like it just come out and say. I don't like him as the riddler. I don't like him as the Penguin I don't. I'm not join a hill fan. I'm not saying that he won't prove me wrong. I'd rather them cast him in him. Be Good because I wanted to be a good Batman movie. I don't want to see him fail but it doesn't excite me like I'm not I didn't hear that I wasn't like oh I just I was like okay well at the wait and see on this one. I media media. Just I don't know that the Comic Book Universe Cinematic World World Needs Jonah Hill in it I just I I. I just feel like there's so many you better people out there to play the riddler. you know I starting you know listen. I just said I'm I'm cool with Jeffrey Right. You Know Robert. Pattinson like took me a couple of weeks to swallow that one like a starting to get like what's the director's name Mary Yeah. I'm starting to get like all right. Dude like we get it. You'RE GONNA cast off the wall. Shit in every casting decision you make nick is going to be a headline for people to talk about leading up to the movie like and and it's just it's it's starting to be a little much. It's you know I don't know I. This one is tough for me to this. One is tough I I. I don't like it. I'll give a hot care. which is is that? I did not like Jonah Hill at all the wolf of Wall Street. I thought he was like overacting and chewing scenery and I do not want that energy in this Batman movie yeah. I know I agree with that. I kind of agree with everything you said. I mean I'm not gonNA. I think Matt raises a really good director so I don't not not not downing but but but I also think Ryan Wilson is a really good director and he got so caught up in his own shit when making the last Jedi. I fucked Ho movie up and I I I'm not questioning. That raises is a good director. I still think the movie is going to be good. It's I'm hoping it's great because I want a great Batman movie. Out in the world I just I don't know why it's a new Batman. It's a new Batman Franchise. Why do we have to. I don't know it just seems like a lot of theatrics in the casting. I don't know I I I was a big fan of the patents in casting right away away so I think he's a really talented actor twilight aside this was the first time like Jeffrey Wright is fine nine. This is the first time that I've been like 'cause all you know what makes it worse to me. What makes Jonah Hill's kind of more of more. Is the rumors of people they were considering before him. Were all really great like I really liked the as far as I know there were three people that were bandied about as the ruler David tennant which is God would be amazing Eddie Redman who would also be amazing. Oh God he'd be great and Ramming Malik from Mister Robot who would be sort of another inspired sort of choice He's my least least-favoured those three but I think tenant already read may be amazing so to have those gotTa know whether those guys were actually on the radar or not or just like fans going crazy easy but I don't know I would rather see in any of those guy. Johnny Hill seems like kind of a you know. I'm a little deflated but again I don't unlike him but and I agree with John. About the wolf of Wall Street but I also agree with John that like he was fucking fantastic moneyball. I didn't see coming at all so you maybe I'll maybe this'll be another case like that all right Johnny and bill so the Emmys were two nights ago and there was a lot of there's a lot of controversial winners so I thought that'd be fun kind of do like a lightning round type thing where I just kinda run down some of the main categories and a name the nominees and then one okay you guys give me like you the immediate thoughts pop in your head. Okay okay all right so I up outstanding comedy series Barry Fleabag the Marvelous Mazel Mazel Russian doll deep in Shits Creek the winner being fleabag. I'm sorry I forgot the good place to nominate. The group should win this every year that the place is on television. Wow interesting I I also also I mean I I watched the first season fleabag. I thought it was UK but there are a couple. I think Barry's really good. Thank Shits. Creek is really good. I think doc veep is tremendous but I also. I probably go with the good place here. I think that's the good place is going to end after next year and it's like take the most heinous underrated sitcom ever never watched an episode. It's really good dude. Catch up on Netflix man. It's totally worth worth fit has really worth it. It's really worth it at some Ted Danson. He's so good Ted Danson so good I mean I feel like if anybody has a proven track record as a you know as show runner and room producer for sitcoms. Mike sure I mean unless you unless you wanted to crazy people that doesn't like parks and REC and those who will actually exist now if they they should be shot okay guys next supporting actress in drama Julia Garner from Ozark Fiona Shaw from killing Eve Lena Heady Heady Maisy Williams Gwendolyn Christie and Sophie Turner all from game of thrones the winner being Julia Garner from those are the I hate Mrs why you don't want to have multiple people from the show nominated donated in a category cannibalize each other so who should have one in my mind. I my heart wants to wants to say maisy Mazey Williams because I love her but actually think of all those people for this past season of television that they are voting on. I want to say the Sophie Turner yeah either early in a heavily or you know which is almost like a body of work for how good she was throughout that show right. I guess I was thinking seriously I think had better. I like more meaty stuff in previous seasons. I think this was the you know. The culmination of or the biggest change we saw in Santa was toward the end and I thought so turned crushed at this year. That's why would I give it to all right. Outstanding Drama series this is US better call aw game of thrones ozark pose bodyguard killing eve in succession the winner game of thrones so for me. I'm curious whether John will agree this to me is an emmy for the show's IOS body of work. I mean seven was not strong. It might have been the worst season of the entire show that being said none. None of those other shows actually really jump out to me is like wow. They really should have won. I agree with that. Actually I really love ozark idea to we shit Julia Garner in the last category. She's very good but I think the game of thrones people wanted them deserved it but yeah. I guess that's that's. That's one way to look at it. There's nothing on that list. That really jumps out at me that like it's a it's a clear cut and to be honest. Game of thrones probably does deserve it for it's body of work. It's a revolutionary television. Show supporting actor in a drama series Allen from game of thrones Jean Carlo Carlo Esposito from better call Saul Chris Sullivan from this US Peter Dink Lidge from game of thrones Michael Michael Kelly from house of Cards Jonathan Banks from better call Saul in how do you say Jamie Lancaster's name Nikolai Koster Waldo L. Yes the winner being Peter Dink Lynch yeah I again. I think that's a and he's gotten one before for playing Tyrian but to me. That's another legacy body of work award cause. I don't think the last season was Stiglitz's Stiglitz's strongest by a long shot for going to give it to anybody in that category probably would lean toward Jamie I thought he had the better stuff in the last season. Yeah I don't know what do you think John. I think I would have given us a Jamie as well. I think he was I think he he he had the biggest arc as a character honestly of anybody on on the show even though he has a bird in the last two episodes. I do want to shout out to Alfie Allen. He was really good in the last season lead AC. Oh really good doesn't get you an emmy bill. Now doesn't lead actress in a drama series Laura Linney ozark Mandy Moore this this is US Jodi comber killing Eve Sandra L. Killing Eve Viola Davis had to get away with murder Emilia Clarke game of thrones in Robin Wright House of cards the winter jody comber killing Eve That's bullshit to me like she's great killing to me as wildly overrated. I've watched both seasons that I can watch. They should have been a million Clark's award yeah. I'm not I mean. She's not a fantastic actress but I don't think she ever one for the body work for that show and I don't again. I it's Kinda. I the Emmy's in general you know some of they just don't always nominate the right. People and none of those people really really popped out to me. Either honestly newly-acquired probably the most of all the other thing that popped out to me when frank was reading those nominees when I heard Mandy Moore the first first thing I was thinking of is that John went to a walk to remember by himself as I do not live in a world or manny Moore's Emmy winner and that is a good thing because I've seen a walk remember and she doesn't deserve one lead actor in a drama series billy porter pose Bob Odenkirk. They'll call saw aw Kit Harrington game of Thrones Sterling K. Brown. This is US Milo Ventimiglia. This is US Jason Bateman Ozark the winner the billy porter pose yeah well I mean I don't want to criticize because the moment we're living in but I mean the the risk of sounding repetitive. I would've given this ticket. Harrington I think he by four had the toughest I mean it. Kinda was carrying the show at this point carrying the show with a ton of expectations even if it didn't meet them. I've thought I never thought it was his. He was great so I would have given it to him. Second close second to Jason Bateman who I think is tremendous knows arc I just love Jason Bateman so but I prob- I would've gone with Jon snow the Emmys no nothing I would have gone with Jason Bateman and I think he's great knows arc. He's very heavily involved behind the camera in front of the camera on that show it's it. It seems like it doesn't have the critical reception that frankly it should have is really good and he is in ninety percent of the scenes of the show. He's really great in emiss- The show I also say if you don't get to this category that please watch the GIF of Yup Jason Bateman winning best director for Ozark. Those are in his reaction because it's fucking hilarious in his Jason Bateman. Meadow one is tremendous Michael Blue. It's most Michael Blue reaction ever the lead actress in a comedy series Christina applegate dead to me Rachel Brosnahan Rosina hand the marvelous marvelous. Mrs Mazel phoebe Waller Bridge fleabag Natasha Leone Russian doll Catherine O'hare Shits Creek Julia Louis Dreyfuss veep deep the winner fleabag phoebe Waller Bridge I got hot. Take on this one. I don't know if you have watched it but I would have given this. Natasha Leone tone for a Russian doll inter. I yeah show is tremendous so that shows about it's like groundhog. Ugh Day right kind of yet. She's she's like this. Yes she's like this party girl and she keeps reliving the same crazy night that ends in her death over and over again and she she has to act the same scenes. 'cause it's not like groundhog day the whole day. It's like literally like a two hour window aw so she has to like reenact the same scenes over and over again and it is I think she is absolutely tremendous and also like Jon said about Jason Bateman. She's very heavily involved the writing and producing directing of the show. I was so incredibly impressed by I mean. I never thought that she he had that kind of thing in her so I would. I would go with her on this. One also none of the other people super pop outta me Kristen Bell's not nominated which stupid so Catherine O'Hara's amazing and Shits Creek. Yeah that's true. She is great. Yeah I agree with that. You know this is a scene by omission and Kristen. Bell is not even nominated here. That's insane. Supporting actress in a comedy series Alex Pristine the Marvelous Mrs Mazel Olivia Coleman fleabag Seen Clifford fleabag Kate McKinnon Saturday night live Betty Gilpin glow. Oh Sarah Goldberg Berry in a chums veep merrin Hinkel the Marvelous Mrs Mazel the winner Alex Burstein the Marvelous Mrs Mazel and for those of you that now Alex has also also lowest from family guy and she's also from Mad TV. I honestly I'm not sure that I give two shits. I don't know that I have an opinion. I'm I was GONNA say that having watched Bo seasons of that show. That's not nearly as good as people seem to think it is that the her humor is very specific guy said about how you know. Some people seem to really enjoy the comedy stylings of Jacob Battle on in this spiderman movies in on that one of them at Alex foreseen is very much the same way. I'm not one of those people yeah I agree supporting actor in a comedy series Anthony Kerrigan Barry Tony Hale Veep Alan Arkin the Kamensky method Tony Shalhoub the Marvelous Mrs Mazel Stephen Root Berry Henry Winkler bury the winner Tony Shalhoub the Marvelous Mrs Mazel. Oh no I mean. Don't get me wrong. I really like Tony Shalhoub but did he really another at me at this point and especially for that show like I I. I just don't understand this. Who was the guy who was the WHO's the guy after the the first guy from Barry Tony Hale Buster her yet. That's the and that's why we give it to. I think he's the Julia drivers. I mean she's a transcendent talent at this point like she's Lucille ball of this generation but second to her on that show is Tony L. He's so funny lead actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson blackish Michael Douglas the Kaminsky method Ted Danson the good place don cheadle black Monday Eugene Levy Shits Creek and Bill Hader bury the winner bill hader berry I am. I'm not going to hate on Bill Hader winning too much because I really love him. I think Barry's another one that's I. I like it but it's a Tad overrated to me. It's not that good. Would that being said here this to me. This is Ted Danson every day of the week twice on Sunday. Yeah I love to dance really really good in a good point still funny. I think that's the last I think that's the last major category yeah I do want to see I would like to John pointed out. How do we okay okay. Let's talk about directing. I'm sorry Jason Bateman one yeah Jason Bateman one and listen to some of the hitter's up Ryan's right DB Weiss David Benny off both from game of thrones David Nutter Gamer thrown thrones Adam McKay not from the laughter life from Anchorman Right I mean I don't know the other people but will the other guy I count. Mig will support. Yes the long naive perversity director who shot the game of thrones episode. You couldn't see anything yeah so that to me. It was funny. I'm like I don't understand. I don't understand how he got nominated for. I don't understand but I that is tremendous tremendous work. I mean that's in a night. That had a lot of shocking winners. That was arguably the biggest upset you can tell I mean besides the fact that Jason Being Jason Bateman when you see his reaction you can tell that he's like what the fuck just happened. Everybody around him goes nuts and he just sits there. At the most Michael Blew the expression on his face ever really worth watching I mean I think you could say that. He got this because the there were like three a game of thrones directors by against each other and they cancel each other out David Nutter. Maybe make the argument that he actually deserved this one but I'm just really happy for Jason. Bateman and I and I was wearing the shuttle on so yeah I agree. I mean David. The long night was one of my favorite episodes in the series is definitely the best episodes of of the seventh season. It's it's not hard to make the case for John's right and it's not hard to make the case for another there will not are actually you was nominated for a night of the seven kingdoms which is my favorite episode of the season. I think Josh was the one that directed long night rank or my yellowknife wait a minute. We Man Yeah I got the wrong. I got mixed up. Yeah you know another got nominated for the last of the starks interesting. Maybe I'm wrong lousy directly. It was the one that was the name of the one before the night before for the battle. That was the night of the seven kingdoms. The one where bran gets that's that that was my favorite part of this. That was my favorite seven seasons well so we just don't know who directed one episode of Game of thrones but we're really saying I'm just looking real quick Yeah David. I did direct a night of the kingdoms. It's just not the one he was nominated for. which is crazy that is that is fucking crazy all right so the fall? TV season is upon us. I go into it with a little aside going into it to be honest because I kind of in the streaming world. We live in where things are premiering three hundred sixty five days a year. Now now I kind of miss you know ten fifteen years ago when the fall TV premieres were such a big deal and you know the traditional network model will astill dominant. I kind of miss that maybe it's my last couple of weeks that I spent binging on friends. That made me miss it. I don't know but I feel like it's such a different landscape now but that being said still there is a fall premiere season and there's no one more knowledgeable about said season season than our guest tonight John Beaver. I WanNa talk about returning shows and new shows. Let's start with what are we. What are you you excited about that's brand new a new show coming on whether it be on a traditional network like NBC ABC Fox CBS S. or something on cable. What's what's what's blowing your skirt. Let's gives johnny a Boehner. That's right well. What gets me hard guys so I just want to say bill totally agree with you is very weird to be like an annual in this generation where like the fall dates don't don't matter. I don't want us for you but as a subscriber to of entertainment weekly for the entirety of the nineteen ninety s the two issues I used to get it's about were the summer movie preview and the DEL TV preview and it's Kinda snap either. We don't live in that age anymore but you know I still watch all the all all the network pilots just to just to see what I like. I don't like and I've been doing it for the last five or six years so so i. I'm probably one of the only ones left. It doesn't get paid for at this point but I do know there's. I've watched three of them so far. Two of them were atrociously bad. One of them was pretty good. MM-HMM I watched all rise which stars Misty Knight from from from Luke cage and it was fucking terrible visit visit Jimmy Smits do now that's on bluff city law which also premiered that not a chance to watch yet which is also looks terrible honestly but I'll give it a shot yeah all rise literally in the first five minutes a bailiff in the courtroom. Kobe gun on Misty Knight and then the other ballot shot him. I was like Oh yeah that's that happens in courtrooms all the time sure that was on CBS which you know shockingly anyway a legal dramas on CBS. I know everyone's just astounded with Bob. Hold on a show so is all rise did not make Janis Boehner Rice. It did not make Janis Boehner rise in the slightest there was some random actors in it that I got a chuckle out sounds like Marc Hogan Burger in her fiftieth television show and this the night of course but but yeah it was it was fucking bed and then I watched another. CBS Show a Sitcom called Bob Hearts shola which was also atrociously bad. It was chuck low ratio so you pretty much. I know exactly the like Sitcom Beach. You'RE GONNA get a Chuck Laurie show at this point you know if you've seen two episodes of either Big Bang theory or two and a half man you know exactly what you're getting here and had the guy from Mike and Molly in it so it was like your standard down the line a CBS show the are getting more diverse so didn't have they lead black actress than the as did arise so CBS isn't quite the White Bread station that used to be so that's something I guess and then I watched the uniform which doesn't actually premiere until Thursday but it dropped online yesterday so I watch that and that's got wall Goggin in it so I'm going to give it a shot. Regardless just won't and Gaba channels out on Johnny the Unicorn is also on CBS so I was kind of surprised to say that I liked something on CBS. I'd had the vibe like parenthood even though it's a half hour sitcom but it's a single camera so there's no laugh track and you know it's Walton Goggin so you know I'm I'm GonNa. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA go down. That road allowed great yeah so I can't picture well coggins in a fucking Sitcom. I mean great fucking great in a vice principals. He has a real comedy touch but this one is actually more like yeah he does comedy almost more like the straight man a little bit in more like a family drama which was very much not while unguarded as to me but you really good so what so what is there anything coming up the fall that you have not watched yet that has buzz around it or that. You were just looking forward to watching yeah so I think stump town premieres tomorrow night. I'm sorry I'm looking at it and looking at the schedule right now. I really WANNA watch that so some some town has Kobe smoulders you know agent hill slash how I met your mother and Johnson who Robert about the end Jay Johnson Nick Miller from a from new girl who I fucking love he's also made see also absolutely stole Spiderman into the spider verse so I I love Jay Johnson and that's based on a graphic novel that I have never read by Greg rocket which so obviously the comical gallant also gets the pumps for that one. I love Russia just saying yes awesome yes sir. I've never read town of you or I've never read sometime. I read the the vampire book he did which I I'm saying I love it. I can't remember what it's called now and then he actually has a series of novels that I was a huge fan of about about a Hitman so he's pretty. I like rock and I love. I love Kobe smoulders. That was one where I watched the first look trailer. Oh extended sneak peek kind of thing. I was really interested in that one yes so that one's on ABC and I'm definitely I don't the plot wise. It's like you know she's a private investigator in Portland but she also has a gambling problem mm so it could be it could be interesting and I think you know again. I think Greg rocket being you know behind the scenes on this one and also the source material is promising thing and a Lotta Times at some of these these pilots you know it's really because of the way because of the nature of how pilots are shot and how you don't know what you're gonNA series. When you make a pilots you have to keep your fingers crossed. You have to make these really awkward. Pilots that explain things and then the second of episode has to explain everything they can be kind of unbearable to watch and don't always indicate issue is going to be good or not so I'm looking forward to seeing the pilot and seeing how it is but that's definitely one I I'm actually excited about for the fall and also another show also on CBS shockingly called evil which is by the the folks who made the the good wife which was not actually show a super into but it does start luke cage as one of the leads in it's kind of like a x-files ish supernatural thing where he's a a priest in training and he and he like he teams up with this psychologist who's like a lapsed. Catholic and she's like like the scully to his shoulder a bike hunt down these like supernatural cases where the Catholic Church and it's got some pretty good pedigree with you know with the good wife and the good fight being some pretty well regarded if not always highly rated shows and it seems like it's really out of the wheelhouse of the Kings who made those shows but it could be interesting and I like my culture in Luke Cage and Jessica John so I'm I support. I support his career moving forward that premieres. I think on Thursday night on C. B. S. so John did you watch. Have you watched it last night but I run out of time. did you watch prodigal son. DVR It. I did not have time to watch those that bluff city law. I did not watch actually Michael Sheen alive. That was my number three. I wasn't sure how how much time we had to go through shows. I was semi excited about but that was my number. Three show is excited about that one. I liked the conceit of that show. I mean it's ludicrous but I I like it. I like Michael Sheehan so I watch him. Read the phone book yeah definitely like a little bit silence of the lambs. Yes for fresh off by you know but you know that doesn't mean it's necessarily bad for sure the other one. I was Kinda curious about. I think it premiered tonight. John was called emergence. Did you hear anything about that yeah. you know that's like a it's on Internet premiere on. ABC actually airing right now. I think that's the one that's the one with the plane crash in the superpowers yet which I'm definitely going to give a shot as well I liked Allison tolman. Is You know I it could be good. It could be one of those blink and you miss it. SCIFI shows the networks tried out to try and find that lost money and it never works out linked to manifest fast yeah which I think actually got renewed. Yeah that's coming back and I think didn't blindspot last. That's the lawn I think this might be. Its final season but it's like seven years right. Yeah I was pretty surprised at last as long as they did to Just how many can she possibly have they could solve crimes with ah the blacklist is still going to write. Your black list is coming back. It's crazy but yeah I like Allison Allison tolman and also Turkeys in that show Donald face on so. I'm going to watch it. It's right given Turks in work. I mentor yeah all right. That's a good that's a nice little across section of new shows for people listen. I like how I look. How Weird Shit is always the result of plane crash of course of course. It's never like a ferry was a train unbreakable. That's true so johnny. Are there any other ones or is that it for you that Mike sure has a new sitcom com called sunnyside with Calapan. I don't really think the plot sounds very interesting. He's like this disgraced politician that starts helping immigrants you know get into the get their green cards or something which sounds like super topical but I do as we mentioned previously in Mike sure I trust somebody because I I want to shot an end. You know I'm like were Bradley. Whitford career but pervert army does not sound appealing L. I just and then I cannot believe that Patricia Heaton is getting another Sitcom where she apparently plays a woman a woman who becomes a like doctor medical intern in her her fifty s or whatever issue is God knows unsurprising. That's on CBS as well so that's one of the ones I'm not looking for. It was rather go to the dentist than watch that show honestly. I think all rise in Carroll Second Act which is what that show is called are going to be the two worst pilots. I'm going to watch this this year all right right so that's a pretty good cross section for listeners of some new things to check out. What about what what's got you most geeked out as far as returning returning shows. I know what my number my. The thing I'm looking forward to the most is I now I mean I have two things I'm superpower about well really three things so there's two shows going into their final seasons that I absolutely adore one of which is a good place and the other is supernatural all right so I you know I have literally been watching supernatural for over a third of my life at this point so I'm going to be bit. It'd be very bittersweet sweet to see them ended but I really hope it goes out with a bang and a good place is always full of surprises as far as like you know big events events obviously the crisis on infinity. Earth's I think is the one that that did that. You're Jones and so franken so am I and that also leads into another new show which is bad woman knowing that I didn't I didn't talk about but so which we all also got kind of a teaser on with last year's big crossover. I think the woman is GonNa Suck Past. Yeah did not get a good vibe from the IT. We got last year at all but you know so so I'm I'm super excited about crisis on infinite earths. I think it's it's I think think it's GonNa be just awesome especially all the shit they're lining up with Tom. Welling Tin and Eric Durant's and it's GonNa be awesome article emphatically not Michael Rosenbaum right out of their way to not very Michael Rosenbaum back he you probably didn't see they asked him and he he said Go. Fuck yourself really yeah. Apparently he put it out on twitter. He made them look really bad. He was like he was down in Florida visiting family. They called him and said we don't have a script. We don't know how big your part is. We don't know when you're shooting it. We can't pay you much you. You want to do it and he was like no but I will say so watching season seven of the Arrow once it got to the second half of that season. I was like Yep. It's time to wrap this thing up. I thought the second half of that season was so slow and boring. A hole jump forward to the future was a hated hated it and then they I saw today that there's going to be a spin off to aero yeah about his his in a felicity daughter which I'm like. No thank you good well. It's not sure it doesn't matter. I'm good well. It's it's the three it's headlined by Katie Cassidy who I like and then it's got the other check. I can't remember her name that plays the other version of black canary and then Oliver employees daughter. It's the three in sort of like a birds of prey ish thing so. It's like the canaries canaries in the coal mine or something well not. I won't be watching it and so anyway. That was my feelings on season seven however I will say I'm going to be Super Sad AC- Stephen Mel go. I love the guy but now I think they're set it up to be pretty pretty awesome awesome so I'm looking forward to that. I'm definitely agree with you. There's a reason I did not mention Arrow in my like final seasons. I'm super pumped about. I appreciate especially especially Stephen Amal and the university created by the show's frankly it kind of had a bit of resurgence a couple of seasons ago you know with a Damian dark season and the following season where they export a lot of like first season themes about Oliver skills in your killing possibly and and then just really took turn hasn't been hasn't been kind of a struggle to get through and not in like a you know turn it around after one season the waste log but just like when are they gonna end this which is sad because I I enjoyed the show so much earlier season yeah but I'm excited I mean I think I think the flashes similar. I think they went through. They went they went through some valleys but I felt last season was pretty good leading into a this big crisis season coming out. I haven't watched flash in two seasons. Flash is still pretty good. It's better flashes always better when it's light it. Is You know it's got to be the the comedic side to arrows gritty side when they tried to get when when Barry got depressed the show is not fun to watch when those scripts do grant gosden no favors in Barry Allen either but whenever Ralph is on screen. It's actually pretty good. I also love all versions of Harrison. Wells that Tom Cavanagh plays he's great and then my track record on super girls very spotty. I I haven't watched every episode I pretty much out on. I actually did end up watching it over the summer and it was like must be topical about trump agree. Ah The honestly the best show out of the Arrow Verse Spawn Shows Probably Legends Tomorrow Laura Most Fun. I Love I love. Let's bury with Constantine. I love it too. I'm very sad. Brand Ruth is leaving though yes US agree I don't. I don't really understand why they said they don't have anywhere to go with his character which just crazy me but I'm disappointed in that but that show is just so loopy. Iran distant so like giving up on what they tried to do in the first season lean into the ridiculousness that it's it's a lot defined as long as you have said about titans how you just have to the first episode might be thrown off and then you're like Oh. This is what they're doing so now that I've accepted. This is what they're doing into this. I feel like legends is the same way like that's a show where they can go and and made George Lucas and it's totally fine so johnny you're saying for your returning shows than the only ones you're really excited about our supernatural the good place it was the third one. I mean I'm I'm I'm excited for a lot of stuff that I watch you know or have watched. Those are the ones I was just most excited about where a supernatural in the good place for their final seasons I do watch a couple of procedures as I get older on actually really enjoy the Nathan fillion show the rookie out which barely barely got renewed but I I I really like it and you know again the way things are so fragmented now it's just really and I think a lot of actors are just like I can go do twelve episodes on FX or Netflix or something and get paid just as much not have this crazy work schedule like the twenty two episode things you know so. I think a lot on the quality is frankly moved away from the networks unfortunately other a few other shows that I watch that I watch on the networks pretty he regularly. I do enjoy the good doctor for some reason to bury watches. I kind of like how do you know he has autism instead of being curmudgeon addicts but but I kind of enjoy anyway honestly looking at the snow like most of the stuff. I'm excited to see come back is stuff. That's involved with the crisis crossover or you know the good place. I'm also getting older and I'm almost the shamefully excited about the final season of criminal minds which I've watched for ten years and I I also I watch watch Chicago. PD relatively religiously. I don't know why but I do and I like it. You can do a whole three hour. Block of Chicago based emergency correctly services if you wanted to try. I tried to do the whole thing. I tried to hold Chicago Dang but I don't I just never I could never really stick with and it's not even necessarily a generational thing because you know there's a lot of people even younger than us that will lead his love turning on USA am watching law and order. Svu reruns and I'm just don't really get it but you know I'm not I can't. I can't invested in procedural so I just can't do it. They they made a point this passage of the Chicago shows John of they had mercy hardy gay crossover into Chicago. PD so they're all on the same. I guess surprised by that or bet. Mariscal heartache will pretty much do anything at this point for predictable. I mean she's GonNa break. The gunsmoke record right and it's just insane so yeah. I can't think of anything alison super excited for for the fall. As far as network shows you know I'm sure there's a lot of streaming things things that are more exciting Franklin than some of the shows we talked about but I think crisis the most exciting thing by far honestly I'm GONNA check out. I'M GONNA check out products yeah. I'M GONNA check that out for for me for me this season this television season is all about sue. Bradford like I'm really excited for crisis. Hopefully it'll fuck it up too bad. I'm really excited excited to see Tom. Welling Brandon Ralph and the other dude the place superman all the same time. That'll be really fine but for me. This is all about supernatural natural like John I've been I've been watching supernatural since I was twenty five years old. I'm going to be forty one in two weeks. That's ridiculous. It's a ridiculous amount of time for John. Rachelle like supernatural and just like I know frank you never got into it or stuck with it but the evolution of that show from what it started as to what it is is nothing short of it's unreal Bennett lasted this long and that has been dependable. I'm really sad. I hope it goes to either way. I'm going to be really sad not to have the winchester's in my life anymore. I haven't end of the era kind of show like this. Since like smallville friends went off the Air Oslo is far as something that really was like a big part of my life for this large chunk of time. Maybe lost yeah and game of thrones. Maybe it hasn't been that long but this is like Smallville is the closest this thing I guess because it's ten years of John. Ratio friends was a very broad Sitcom comping but you're x-files something like that lasted such a long time. fifteen years is astonishing for a paranormal science fiction each show with the same two actors yeah. It's unbelievable all right well. I know I speak for bill. When I WANNA say Johnny. Thank you for coming on again in being a voice of reason on this the chaotic circus that is billing for pub culture hope you had a good time. How it's my pleasure man. I I always have a great time chatting with you guys for for hour and a half straight. It's exhausting soaked in sweat right now. Just worked marathon we have we we've talked before frank about. You should really stop furiously masturbating while we do this. I know I I you know it's even weirder when by dogs watching me through the door but the yeah you know it's funny so earlier today I I sent out a tweet because I got home from work and I sent got a tweet and I just asked like what's the first thing everybody does when they get home from work in there. I had multiple responses that said take my bra off okay I I just I guess I never i. Maybe I don't CARE I. I like a selfish person. I never realized like the BRA was such a a like uncomfortable. I gotta get this thing off kind of thing. I would've thought it'd be like high heels for froth-pak man whatever man women women really don't have it easy. Okay Bill Jesus Christ I mean I can't imagine walking around in high heels all day. They'll just seems ridiculous to me. I can and all right Jagger so so anyway Jamie thanks again man really appreciate it bill. You got anything else you want to say yeah. I know I'm all talked out all right so let's wrap it up then the usual. You know what I'd do is if if it ever deeper so I finished my binge of ten seasons of friends today. I want people in the interwebs. give me some suggestions for something to binge next. Prefer something funny because usually these are things that I watch go to sleep so I want suggestions on what what Sitcom preferably something fairly long running. I should go for next. Anybody hit us up hit me up. Does it have to be streaming or are you going to not get it could be anything it can be. As long as I can get it on. I mean I I have access to Netflix Hulu Amazon prime so wherever I can grab it. I like superstar alive. That's actually still running but and that's been on for like five or six years really. Maybe I'll check. That out happened for six years. I think this is it's like he's going into its fifth or sixth season the now it's going to his fifth season. Yeah Pretty well-thought-out too yeah. It's pretty good. I was thinking about rewatching chuck but I want. I want some suggestions from people in the world all right well.

"Imagine that this virus is in the most strange ways in the most strange and unusual ways. Benevolent that ultimately. It's trying to get us to do certain things to correct our behavior in certain ways to create change and transformation in certain ways that ultimately are going to lead to the progress of the human race.

Tommy is one of the reasons I love living in Los Angeles. Nah I met Tommy years ago win the conscious music band that I was managing in a time we were first coming to La and we performed in his spacious living room for about one hundred fifty beautiful brilliant and talented Los Angeles peeps and have since come to know Tommy as deeply wise man. He's actually a renowned Kundan. Lean Yoga teacher which I tried Kunda Lena Yoga a few times and decided immediately. I didn't like it until I did a three day workshop. Where Tommy Taught Kunda Lena Yoga twice a day morning and evening for all three days and I just went with it. Why not I'm there. Let's do it. I was astonished to find three days later. My neck and my back felt free of strain and pain for the first time in years and ever. Since then I've actually incorporated into my morning practice a simple breathing practice that I learned from Tommy that weekend continues to make my body and mind feel better every day. Now I've actually wanted to get Tommy on men this way since I first conceived of this whole podcast idea but it just didn't come together and Tommy and his wife Kim Miller who is another world renowned Yogi in her own right travel incessantly but actually I was inspired reinspired. I should say to re-invite Tatami to the podcast just last week after reconnecting with him on a quarantine inspired zoom call with a few friends because on that call he said a few things that deeply resonated with me about how he's experiencing this great time of what I would consider global shutdown and personal upheaval. And we'll dive into what he said in into our conversation and unpack that for you. I think it's really really profound but the last thing I want to say about Tommy. He's also a survivor of addiction. And he's actually become a world renowned leader in the realm of addiction recovery.

This way all right. Let's dive. Tommy Rosen my friend. Welcome to men this way. Thank you Brian. So much for having me. There's a longtime in coming man as it's been a minute we've been talking about that even talking about this for a minute and boy but what a perfect minutes actually do this very unique moment. We find ourselves in right now. I'm really excited about the conversation that we get to have because of the context within which were having it and and when we were on our friend. Zun Call last week. I was where I I learned that. Actually you had just come back to India. The last plane out what would happen. They're talking about. It's very interesting situation because I was separated from Kia my wife. I'm in southern India and I'm on a on a health retreat of all the ironic places to be during a pandemic breaking out. I'm literally in a cloister village in southern India completely cut off really from the outside world taking potions in concoctions of health and being massaged every single day by these doctors these are doctors and meanwhile Kia is in northern India and she's leading a group of forty five people who've flown to India to train with her and these forty five people represented I think nine countries so there we are in that you can put yourself back a couple of weeks. It's march eighteenth seventeenth in. We don't have been there a month and things were heating up and we knew that we had a plane home which we booked four months previous. We knew we had a plane home on. United Airlines from New Delhi India nonstop all the way to San Francisco and then we would connect home daily from there and the whole time like at first. We're like oh well it's no problem you know. Our claim clearly will fly and then all of a sudden the government of India says on March. Twenty second no more. International flights are allowed into the country. No more planes can land are playing takes off on March twenty second. We're thinking yourselves. Does our plane landed in India before the twenty second or or? What are we dealing with so as fate would have it? Our plane was slated to land in New Delhi to pick us up to pick everybody now a- On march twenty first at eleven thirty pm half an hour or the deadline it actually landed thank God and then we got on the flight and we took off from New Delhi to fifty in the morning five. Zero am on March twenty. Second we were the last flight out of India. Credible was that a full plane of people only God it was full and it was that that intense energy of people who are scared of s and really really. WanNa get somewhere from civil house. Just picturing in my head. I've been to India few times and the trains and you see it in the movies. I see people sticking out of the airplane windows. It's packed to the Brim. People are riding on the wings. He's like is funny. When I first heard that you had the last plane out of India there was a part of me is like Oh you know. Well I've been to India India's amaze you guys love India. It's not a bad place to sort of wade out this pandemic and then and then I thought wait a second. India has more people than any place on earth crawling. I mean it's a bit hyperbolic but there there. You can't social distancing in India. You're kidding me like now to see what's actually happening there. All my goodness man within forty eight hours of getting home. There was a complete and total shutdown. The country each individual state shutdown was actually initiated. The Prime Minister issued a order for people to actually stay inside. I ask myself how to one point. Three billion people who don't many from don't have homes so many many because of homelessness but many others just simply live outside. And so what are we can only imagine in the United States? We're having our own version of this in Europe. They're having their version of this in India. They're having their version of this China. Etcetera everybody's having their their culture and their society is interacting with this issue in a variety of different ways. It's very fascinating obviously. It's terrifying for some every emotion as I think every emotion that you could feel we felt and at the time you and I are having this conversation I know some people will be listening to this on the other side. Well if there is another side of this but we're just getting started this just were. What are we April first? Today's April first twenty twenty that we're we're talking in the thing though. I WanNa talk about early. Start our conversation with you said something that has been near and dear to me on our call last week with our friends. You acknowledge something that what this meant for you. That really spoke deeply to a theme that I've been playing with as well in my life. But would you restate what you said? And what did you mean by so? I think you're referring to this idea that this is the time to stop and so almost every class I ever begin. We begin by stopping. And there's a wonderful yoga teacher who along with his then. Wife Motti is ready. This is Chuck Miller who I'm speaking about. And he used to start his classes by saying. Okay we start by stop. And that's where I I heard that and I like it and it makes a lot of sense to me. We're entering into. Let's just say we're entering into a sacred space. You could say the beginning of yoga classes. You're entering into a sacred space. You could say each morning when you wake up out of bed. You're entering into a sacred space. Every meal could be each meal with your partner. Perhaps or family or by yourself. Yeah absolutely every moment is has the potential for us to bring the sacred to it and this moment is certainly especially no different so if we can personify the spires for minute what is this virus trying to get us to do. We all think the viruses. Trying to perpetuate itself. That's what living organisms do. They perpetuate themselves okay. Well let's just just be playful unless just imagine that that's not the purpose. Let's imagine that this virus is in the most stranger ways in the most strange unusual ways. Benevolent that ultimately. It's trying to get us to do certain things to correct our behavior in certain ways to create change and transformation in certain ways that ultimately are going to lead to the progress of the human race. That's a heavy concept when part of the cost that's being paid here is human life which we can't escape anyway. I mean that's coming for us all anyway. We know we know it. Yes people are going to die anyway but since we're speaking about personifying this virus. I'm suggesting just as an exercise. What if this virus has actually benevolent? Even though it doesn't appear that way to us on the surface because it's so frightening and because it's it's threatening our current wells threatening some people's lives and in the bigger sense it's threatening our current society The structure of our society the structures within our society are being challenged. Our economic system certainly are political system are for just just for the sake of our of our listeners. Have 'cause I am totally enrolled. I buy into the world as a friendly friendly. Universum doesn't mean that there isn't suffering pain and hurt and all of that stuff but that's part of the totality the whole experience. What else become here for but experience at all so I'm enrolled this. Keep going because I. I'm sure that there's some people listening that are thinking okay. Benevolent virus. That wants to kill me. That wants to okay. Well let's Whereas where we're going with this right well. The virus doesn't want to kill you right. That's that's not how the virus works if the virus kills you. The virus dots get great point. That's not what it's all about. It's not even its own interest to kill us that's right. We often look at a virus like in in computer terms. We look at a virus. Adds something that is going to ruin. Good coding we had an intention. We created a software virus goes into the SOFTWARE AND IT. Messes IT UP AND IT. It blows what are much innocence when the same situation. We've created a situation in our world in point of fact and I'm sure there are some people that think very very very differently than I do but I think that there must be a great majority of people on the planet alive today who have thought God we we really need to change. Like no no matter what your political position is your economic situation. Your your color erase your creed or gender all of that aside every one of US human beings as at some point thought. Wow how are we going to work this out? How are we actually going to get through these challenges because to my simple mind? I can't see my way through to the solution. Okay so incomes. The virus almost like answering prayer. One way that we all have thought in the back of her mind one way we've thought change was going to happen was through unbelievably violent war revolution when we think about the massive change that has to take place on this planet. How are we all going to come? Well the way that we used to do things. Twentieth Century in pre and back was violence. Or you want to affect. Change okay. Violence Revolution coup. And now we're united. Were united with a common enemy common enemies. Virus people are thinking more in terms of human beings now than they are in terms of nations. I wanted to say something because there are still again. It's April I. It's early in this dance. And there are a lot of people still hold now with the the the kind of divisive there are a lot of people that are still not united. If I can love something about a virus. The thing that I love about what's happening is this virus. Didn't give a damn what your beliefs are. Doesn't Damn what your politics are doesn't give a damn what conspiracy theories you buy into. It is going to affect one out of three fucking people on this planet while it's GonNa Affect everybody on the planet so from that position we I would say more people than the Salinas moment. More people are thinking about each other trying not to spread the virus to each other thinking on at least on a national level. Okay well we need to protect the people who are around us. But I think we're also thinking internationally like isn't it interesting? What's going on in Europe? What's going on in in an all these different places so I think there's a global perspective for one thing as a result of this current situation. Now I started out by saying you know. There's a benevolence to this this thing this virus and the Benevolence of course correction if we continue down violent pass the amount of death the amount of pain the amount of suffering that would take place would so completely dwarf what's happening because is virus. Dwarf it. I mean the the unbelievable paint so so I think what this is is an easier softer way toward change. Now let's look at how we've already been changed right now in the last. Let's say lost thirty days. We are unified in an effort to not spread this day. We are being made to slow down. Have too busy nece and the addiction to having have to a great extent for most people called were being asked to go home and I take away from. That is not that we're being asked to be in a home space like a house or an apartment. But we're we're being asked to go hoping to capitalise heart with a capital H. And we're being asked to slow down to be quiet to pay attention. Just the exercise. Imagine the exercise of not touching your face that requires tremendous awareness. That you have to wake up from sub-conscious patterning picking your teeth picking your nose rubbing your eyes or like fixing your hair like all of a sudden you have to be more aware you have given myself corona virus probably ten times over and just the last hour none of honor and before it would have been twenty times. I'm going to be on your hands alive and whatever so. We're being asked to go home to be still to spend time either with ourselves or with whomever else in our home. Our family or loved ones our children. Our parents and being asked to more aware. More quiet more introspective and as a Yogi in a teacher of Yoga. Meditation and I. I just hope that people begin to get this to really get. This is not about me being a teacher of Yoga. Meditation Yoga Meditation. A really good idea for everybody like this is not like this is good for this person but not good for that person like anything that helps your body to process toxins out of your body anything that helps your mind to process mental. Toxins out of your mind. These are good ideas. Anything that leads to your calming and less anxiety less fear less worry. These are good ideas anything that promotes better thinking clearer. Thinking intuitive capability. These are good ideas and now because of this virus. These things are happening more than they are. And I'm also aware that like what you're saying is beautiful and I'm also aware that in our home still. There are so many distraction. This is really important in one of the things that will I wanNA talk to you about his practice actual practice. But I wanna something else that you said. This might be a good segue into that something else that you said on our phone call actually recording. Michael Beckwith who I think was in India with you and he said something about forget about saving the system is broken and instead what was really saying was serve. What's coming and the way he put it was served. The Emerging Paradigm if you have a broken economic broken political broken healthcare and broken education system. Why would you put your energy into keeping it alive in exactly the same way that it was? I'm not saying kill it. I'm not saying revolt against it. I'm just saying be present to what's coming and serve that. That's what I took from what Reverend Michael was saying and he he just lit it up. He always likes it up. Let's elaborate on this because you know it's easy to get abstract philosophical and I wanna try to grounded in our everyday practical reality whatever the hell that means but as much as possible but but I really get the distinction there is it's not about. Let's tear down. What exists I mean hell the krona virus do enough for us. I mean the economy like what's happening right now in. Its isn't it interesting to hear these pretty much exclusively older white men argue for flip the switch back on who cares if a whole bunch of people die. We need to get the numbers up. We need to get the. The output needs to get going. We're it's really just fascinates me and so in any case that I don't have take on those voices again the Krona virus is GonNa do. It's thing it's perfectly designed even if we if we rush through this to try to get back to the old paradigm to quickly. It's just GonNa do the job. It's GonNa destroy an an even deeper level so serving what is emerging. Like how do you do that? What is emerging even like this stop? Everything's being ground to a halt. What what's coming? What's next give you a concrete example right from now? Everyone who teaches yoga? Well everyone is an exaggeration. What we've seen is an explosion of free and donation based Yoga classes online. Since this thing broke out we've seen an orientation towards serving and towards service more than I've ever seen before we've seen speakers. Authors Teachers Writers Nutritionists Life Coaches Educators thought leaders in every field. Come forward and say I'm presenting something to you and it's free and it's not part of Big Five Year plan either to grow a business or two. It's like in this moment. This is how I served here. You go so so you asked. What's coming yeah? This is what's coming. We will orient toward helping each other. We will have to shift our economic system in a way again. I'm not saying you throw the whole thing away. Within what is we have to shift MRS reprioritisation? This is a reallocation of finding ways to share wealth. That's why we call it a Commonwealth because there's Commonwealth. I'm not suggesting a communist approach. I'm suggesting an allocation of funds in a an approach reorient a reorientation towards service that has been unprecedented in our culture to this point early in the twentieth century. A law was passed in the United States which gave corporations the same legal rights as individuals. That was a terrible mistake and we have paid the price for that mistake for the last hundred plus years laws like that have to be cooled back they have to be reframed rewritten to support the Commonwealth corporations that are making a tremendous amount. Money have to support the rest of society not not single handedly but they have to contribute. And and so you'd say well there's a tax system for that will not exactly yes but no. It isn't working so there has to be an orientation at the level of corporations and at the level of systems civic governance and state and Federal Governance. There has to be a way for us to get into the discussion for how we're going to deal with the growing economic problem in our society even before this was going on we have an enormous divide between peoples who have and people don't have in our society now with Corona. This is what I mean. By by serving the emerging paradigm the Emerging Paradigm is not emerging. It's here now. It's here right now. How are we going to support the millions of Americans just in this country the millions of Americans who are out of job all of a sudden the WHO knows how many tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of companies that are going to go bankrupt? We can look at that as an unbelievable tragedy? Oh my God will never get through this or we can put your mind towards the solutions and say okay. What's the opportunity here? What's needed is people helping people. We're going to have to create ways for people to do that. That is going to create new jobs. That is going to lead into an orientation of service and that is going to solve this problem. I Like I love that word orientation oriented you know 'cause even as as a man myself it's like I've looking back in my life. I've felt like I know what disc oriented feels like just meaning. I don't know what the Fuck I'm serving. Where am I going? What am I using my skills for? You know I was in the military. Didn't really enjoy the orientation that I was given their didn't it didn't align deeply with me and just other things and I think this word oriented because we're oriented towards something whether it's you know in in our country it's been money profit motive. You know bottom line numbers and I think what would I do what I find so just wildly fascinating about this? This pandemic moment is it is here here. We are even those of us. That don't believe or think we'll we're not sick in the moment or we don't think we don't think we will get sick. Whatever there is an invitation and even the almost are becoming more and more a requirement. We need to care about grandma or the worker that we you know who might get sick if we you know the CO worker the family member or it's like we're being required to care about our neighbor in ways that I have not really experienced in my lifetime. Well that's an awakening that awakening comes at the hands of a virus. Amazing it is amazing and and so that's why I say we can look at this virus from all different perspectives. We can run from it and we can pretend like it's the boogeyman and it's going to get everybody which it isn't. We can look at it in realistic terms week. We do need to stem its spread. We do need to practice these these processes of social distancing extra hygiene really paying attention and taking care of ourselves for however many months it takes so that we can save lives and make us less painful for everybody but again. It's like you know if we're all doing and if everybody you know really really does what's necessary for as long as it takes then we're going to move into a place where the next right thing. We may not do it because we don't always do the next right thing but at least the next right thing will be present and the next right thing for me again is going to have to do with serving people helping people get on their feet giving people opportunities. This is the rest of us who have means who have privileged who have money and support are going to have to help people who don't not out of some savior complex but more out of we're together in this week half to serve each other and if there's someone out there that needs than let's figure out a way to get them what they need like such a unique time because even just take the whole renter landlord situation. Landlords can't just a VIC people who can't pay rent right now because there's no one there to take the place gets a law anyway and law but it would also just be against common sense because there's no one to fucking take their. There's like everyone is being affected at every level that there is this sort of business fascinating comeback to that pause that stop that screeching halt to the old momentum of something has to be done. I have to do something I have to get the numbers right. You know work on that. The numbers don't right then. I need to exercise. Cut Out whatever's not working and replace it with something that will and like that whole paradigm is at least for the moment is just stopped to a dead halt so we we stop before we start in love it. That's good let me ask you them. Because you know I'm one of those coaches in the world that my business has already been online for many years and I'm I'm very well suited to sort of take this moment in run with it and it's so easy to do that from the old paradigm of well. Oh my God something's happening. I have to take advantage of it. I have to notice I have to. I have to serve. I got a right after right. The thing I have to create the thing I have to offer the thing I have to. Oh my God I don't like that just seems like that saying rearranging my furniture inside the prison cell. So what's the next immediate practice or step? How do I know what to offer what to do? Well you spend a little bit of time. I don't want this to sound simplistic. The American mentality is about problem solving which is not a bad mentality have and to be really really good at one. Has to balance thought contemplation. Meditation with action. You want to make sure that the strategy your employees to solve a particular problem is based in number one truthfulness inclusivity. And you really really WanNa be good. You want it to be successful. You want to develop skill. So the reason that we're being asked stop right now is to begin to lay the foundation for making better decisions individually and as a collective you can make better decisions from calm. Replace every nobody. I don't think anyone in the world would refute that we can make better decisions more effective strategies from calmer place so that means that we have to work on being calm in the face of this difficulty which is huge for some people. They're losing people who are close to them and so there's grief and loss involved in their life and it's very painful so I I'm not discounting the extraordinary situations that people are going through. Also there are healthcare workers right now who are working twenty hours a day putting themselves at risk to help prevent the loss of life down the road and so. I'm also where these people these people are already serving the emerging paradigm. They're ahead of the Kirk. They're in positions of service. And they're doing it. So what we do is we have to sit still and developed a practice. Every day. I call it a morning practice. In Yoga we use the word Saad. It just means a practice that put you in touch with yourself. I calmed down. You'll learn how to breathe you. Learn how to meditate. I'm talking about initially maybe twenty minutes thirty minutes later on when you fall in love with it. Maybe it's an hour of your morning but at first. Just twenty minutes learning technique. There are so many there are so many teachers you can take class with any given morning. Eight thirty AM PACIFIC WAR. It or a hundred or thousand other teachers. Where where would they take that class with you? Oh you can. You can join our classes. You sign in at our two zero dot com forward slash yoga today. Okay are two zero and that'll be in the show notes. If you can't write this down right now yes so you come in you. Practice create a foundation of stability calmed now breakthrough the need to do and to have these times require a contraction. These are not expensive times. These are times where we need to come back into the case when you look within we need to calm down and not being a you know. Knee jerk reaction to every fear that your mind can drum up will drive you to places. You don't WanNa go so if we're GONNA be skillful about this. Let's start with ourselves as individuals and let's get control exists for me the orientation with Yoga. Topsy part of my story and the Reprioritisation of this time says to me one hour a day I can give an experienced people that can make a sincere difference in their day and I feel a sense of duty to do. It doesn't cost anything people are donating which is wonderful. But you don't have to. That's what I can do. That's enough if someone calls me and they ask for help I will help them if I can. That's enough anything else at this time of contraction for me is too much. I have to take care of myself as well and so for me. There's my practice there's nine diet. There's walking outside in nature which I'm blessed to be able to do every day connecting with my wife and then a series of people that I love dearly that I get to speak to on the phone and go through this thing together. I have a thought UNAMBITIOUS. Thought ABOUT HOW? I'm going to build my business sometime in the future. I tried to catch it right away and say Tommy. You know what this is not the moment for that. Thought you figure that out later. This is not the time right now. Calmed down these still have an ambitious thought about some kind of massive created. The thing that needs to happen and recognize now that because of this virus are seen this this thing and that thing many take a double sit down on Your Butt. Closure is start breathing. Deeply connect with the center. Come home obey. Obey the calling of this morning. Don't fight don't argue with anybody. Just obey the quiet in the silence of this moment and if you do that. I have great faith if we can all do that. I have unbelievable faith that we're going to move forward. Learn the lessons of this time and come out better than we went in. Yeah that's beautiful. I'm I'm reminded of a distinction. I work with a lot of the difference between inspired action versus anxious. Action inspired action versus anxious action. Anxious action is that I have to do it. I need to do it if I don't do it. Something battle happen and I can do that all day. Fucking long. Lived a lifetime that way and it's just you know Godmanis what what would a stressful way to live? Whatever the results and inspired action really does require me to. I stop to be still for moments bereaved check in like a snow globe. Little those little those wild crazy ambitious anxious thoughts the half twos the need to the sheds all that settlement subside. And that that takes that can take them a minute or an hour or a couple of days or three months of quarantine to yes. Well I think it's really important for all of us to understand that we influence each other and this is such an important point at this time. I can't speak to somebody who's very very anxious and not take on a little bit of that or react to it totally in some way because I recognize as a human being. Encore without having to take on that fear or that anxiousness but I recognize that. Yeah you know the ambition and the doing and the having enough we gotTA GROW. GotTa be gotta be that recognized that that is a phenomenon in our world very much so in the Western world particularly and that we're all in it we all feel in it almost everybody that I ever connect with feels part of that. Because we're influencing each other and there's a collective consciousness of that now there's a different collective consciousness and I think we have a choice and so I remember having a conversation with a friend and this friend is very very very anxious very intense in their energy. And I'm not that anxious and I'm not that intense in this moment and what I recognize is it bothers them that I'm not caught up in the same way or I don't share the same level of concern and what I am. We talk about that and what I say is well. I'm very concerned for the well-being of people especially are elderly and immune compromised and children very concerned and as a result of that concern. What I'm able to do is to pay attention to the the very y strategy of social distancing attention to my my movements hygiene practice teach share help in whatever way I can but beyond that none of this is Mike Control. Those are literally the only things I can do and I had to come to peace with it and because I've come to peace with it I'm not drawn into anxiety each day. It's not that I don't care it's that I recognized. I do care and I'm doing everything I can because I care and beyond that I have to let go and since I do have a profound belief in the creative consciousness of the universe at some people call God other people call the quantum field and every name in between those two ideas. I have a profound sense that we are being guided and I believe that it is ultimately benevolent. And I live in that understanding. And so I'm not going to engage at that same level of fear anxiety intensity as I as I hear. Some folks doing and that is not a judgment of those people. It's just a decision on my part I it's it's three words for me not my preference and that's it and that's all. I need to know not my preference is a judgment. It's not oh I'm right someone else's wrong no. I'm having my experience having your experience I get it. I just choose this experience. And that's that's all I can do. That's all any of us can do. Yeah I like that not my preference one. Ask You one more question. And then we're going to wrap up with what I call the five key takeaways and this will be the five key takeaways Cortina edition. But I want to ask you a question first because this is a podcast that I conceived for men. We have a lot of women listening. I want to talk for a moment in this last question about that part of us. That thinks like I gotta do this by myself. It's on my shoulders. I gotta get me and US through this like I have to do it alone. You know that kind of Lone Wolf like they're alone or going it alone. Don't have a lot of US still. Don't have you know the father figure that we can look up to for wisdom and so we tend to look to celebrities or politicians who just don't know what the fuck they're talking about either and I'm curious Tommy for men listening out there. Perhaps even for their partners that might be listening to this. That are with a man or no amendment. You have a brother or somebody who's still kind of mindset of that old paradigm of I gotTa Get through this myself. I'm on my own or isolating. I mean Jeez. You know the whole social distancing. What a terrible choice of words physical distancing has sort of been the rallying cry let's physical distance but not socially distance. I'm curious what would you say? What wisdom could you offer in the face of that inclination towards Kinda masculine isolating thing? It's simply the idea that we are alone. Disconnected or an island unto. Ourself is a misunderstanding. It's simply not the truth. Everything is connected to somebody else. And if you don't understand that here's just an example. You aren't here without your mother and father. You are here without that so if nothing else. Your entire existence was dependent upon actions that at least two other people took. It doesn't make a difference. You've been influenced so nothing is ever done alone. It's just we're all in this together and the quicker that we understand it and the quicker that we can really tap into our own personal piece of divinity our own personal piece of strength our personal empowerment and be able to serve the collective from that place. I think the better things will be for all of us. I'm the lone ranger concept. There may be exercises that we need to do without other people around your solitude. Your aloneness is one of the most important things that you cultivate. But in your aloneness you have to understand that you may feel alone in a good way like until myself in this moment but in the greater sense it's just simply not. What would you encourage a man to do then? At this time when I mean it's such a unique opportunity to reach out to reconnect. I was talking to a friend yesterday. And just asking him about his friend and talk to in a while. And it's fun about this repeal reconnecting with old friends and talk to in a while and I asked him about his brother because I knew they used to be closings like I haven't talked to him in a long time like all really interesting brother again. I just know there's so many men that I've I've worked with that. I've known that I've been myself that man who just another it's just picking up the phone insane hollow's heart. Would you recommend enquire within so the exercise is if you want to work on building more connection with people? If you feel like you're isolated or you feel that life could be more joyful if you're more connected to certain people and you're hesitant to reach out to people or let's say you're in trouble and you actually need help or guidance or maybe you're not in trouble but you just need direction. But you're hesitating the inquiries I you have to notice. Oh I'm hesitant somewhere in my mind. I think it'd be a good idea to call my brother somewhere else in my mind. I've got real resistance to that. Okay why this is an enquiry without this kind of self enquiry. You'll just stay in the unknown. It's you'll stay in ignorance and I don't mean that as an insult it means you're ignoring something You'll be in ignorance. Resistance is disputed. Just exist it continues to exist but you might not even notice it but at some point things get uncomfortable or maybe somebody like you said to your friend. Wow how long have been and you bring it up to someone's minds right and maybe it's been in the subconscious for a year and really call my brother near why not well to be perfectly honest if I'm thinking about it because we've been really nasty fight era and I don't like the feeling of being around my brother and that's not the full truth so you have to inquire and that you have to go down this road of understanding your decisions with regards to drawing away from other people not asking for help when you need it. Maybe you don't feel safe asking someone for help because maybe they're not the right place to go. Well then that means that you have to start to actively seek out direction safety like you know I go to twelve step meetings Sometimes in quite a bit there was some twelve step meetings where I felt not so much like sharing just felt I didn't know people so well or it felt a little uncomfortable and and then I get to other twelve step meetings where maybe I knew a few people or something about the vied in the room like just felt better and I felt safe to share their and I shared and then maybe speak to a couple people afterward that was me reaching out into a community of people who I know are actually working on being better people. Now if I didn't have that community and I'm sort of by myself and I'm like well I'd like to stop drinking MS meeting. I like to stop drinking or leg to stop smoking smoking pot or or cigarettes or whatever but I'm just sort of under myself. I'm just trying to do it and I just keep failing. Obviously I need to reach out to somebody who knows something about that so. I'm being directed what I'm trying to express his on being directed by my challenge. My challenge in life shows me where I need to work where I need to go so I I have to inquire. Why do I keep doing? This is hurting me. Why do I keep engaging in a behavior that continually brings me to this place feeling shitty about myself? There's a good questioning there and that will lead you to. Hopefully if you're open humble willing that will lead you to asking somebody who knows something about this for help out that answer questions. Yeah thank you actually. I'd realize was also there is actually one more question to ask before are five key takeaways finale. And IT'S AGAIN. It's very unique to the moment. But it's curious You in key. I know you spend a lot of time together as it is. You travel all over together. Now here you are in quarantine together. Do you have any specific practices to to navigate the tight space? We have a few unwritten sort of things that we follow rituals almost yeah rituals guidelines. Okay one of them is we each have a practice in the morning. Sometimes we have a similar practice or we'll practice together because we decided to on that debt but very often we have different practices. She has needs. I have different needs. We respect that so her practice is sacred to her. My practice is sacred to me. We have to allow each other that whatever. That looks like if I'm done with my practice. I don't go in and bother her if she's done with her practice she's she. Lets me be until I'm done? We try to get together for a tea ceremony every day. So we have. We have a very high quality tea that we get from a wonderful company called living And we sit across from each other and we pour multiple sleeping's some wonderful teams whether that's from China or long tea or a red tea or whatever it is never brings us into connection with each other and finally we take a walk every day. We have to go outside. Not a day will go by where we must go out in nature and we don't always do that together but often we'll take a walk together sometimes Sheer I will go out by ourselves from other than that. I just WANNA say when we get into sort of a conversation. That's difficult for us or there's an energy and it's not flowing in the moment you we've given up the idea of having to fix that and we just allow things to be for a little while we go to our corners and then we come back and just sort of be around each other without forcing anything. Yeah and I've had to learn that really the hard way for the last twenty years in this relationship and so it's really important because you know I wanna fix things right away right. Yeah and he has much more introspective. Much more meditative in her approach than I am and so she might sort something out in her meditation for me communicator. That's not good enough. You know we. We need to get out to process out loud. They'll get the throat but are all on the table and this sort through she's willing uh-huh maybe not right away. Yeah so I need to allow that process. Also she also recognize that most of the way I are right right totally at the end of any given day. We have to tell each other. You know. We're so blessed I love you. I recognize how blessed we are. And what a great day. Yeah let's rest well and again tomorrow do it again tomorrow. That's right gratitude. Gratefulness for what we have again tomorrow. Tommy fantastic man. We're not done just yet. We're GONNA wrap up with the five key takeaways. Quarantine edition key takeaway. Number one is a key insight and remember. This is the quarantine edition. What's the one key insight you would offer our listeners? That can help them. Make the most of this fascinating pandemic moment meditate end of the story. Learn a meditation practice right away today right now.

My Day feels viscerally different in a way that I don't like on board with that absolutely key takeaway number two key mentor name.

And I've been so uplifted in so blessed by his his wisdom and his council and his teachings and there are so so so many of and Ted Danson thank you okay number three key resource your most impactful inspiring book movie or Podcast the last year that you recommend for quarantine digestion echo toll as a new earth who. Yeah when I read when I read that book the first time in new been multiple revisits to it. I just feel that it to me. It's it's what's called Vidana. What I mean by Donnas? There's nowhere to go from there. That's it if you can grasp the ideas in that book then you're there. Yeah you can experience that reality that is expressed in those pages. There's nowhere else you need to. It's funny when I read that book back in Gaza would have been like what two thousand eight or so when it came out seven. Eight something like six seven eight somewhere around there. That is an epic great great suggestion number four key investment in the last year was the best thing that you spent money on. And let's say under a thousand dollars that you're now grateful for especially given our current circumstances I would have to say the production studio which is set up that I'm sitting in nine now that that investment of money to get these lights and a few things that allow me to communicate from here is well. Look what's happened is in quarantine to hear what I can still communicate and it has just made such an enormous difference in my life.

It's our 100th Episode! To mark this distinguished (and frankly, unforeseen by anyone) occasion, Tom & Manda present their picks for favorite LGBTQ+ movies in recognition of Pride Month!

"Own elo divers. Are you excited because you should be welcome. What are we talking about. Oh boy to her. Welcome to the deep dive. Podcast where each episode we strive to find something and saying watch on streaming media. My name is tom feeney. I'm a writer for wingstop movie magazine and with me as always in studio d once again is my co host. The mandalorian mandalorian. Also mr mandalorian here to. He's he's kind of like a guest background sorta person. We counted him for the applause. That's true anyways. Yes we're back and this is our second full episode. I believe being in the studio or both vaccinated as far as you know as far as i know. And it's our I don't know if you know this. But it is our one hundred episode one hundred episodes of the deep dive podcast episodes. They exist now in the universe. We'll do that. That's insane to me. I mean thought we could do it. No one either. Yeah i mean. I kind of thought then around episode to one hundred episodes and we also recently passed. I think it was eleven thousand downloads too. So i mean that's a pretty big deal for a small time little podcast in. It took to downloaded eleven thousand times myself long tire. I will admit. I've done it a couple of times. But but that's amazing and you know what this has been really fun so thank you to you. Hey you know what I appreciate that. But here's the thing we you know. I was thinking about how we are. We got here and ultimately if my memory serves me right. This was your idea. I think a hounded you for a couple of weeks. We gotta do a podcast. Yeah to do something. And i was like. Who are you and then eventually. I figured that out and then you let me into the house. Just like hey. This is a good idea that this and so far. I mean it's been. It is exceeded all of expectation. That it's been so much fun. It really has some good listeners. And we've got some good comments. And i think the people that tune in to to listen to our episodes are dedicated listeners as it were Just kind of they know how much we enjoy doing. This podcast So there's not a lot of work involved in terms of getting the energy of the will to do it don't know it's just it's fun you know and so like i personally want to say thank you to every single person. Who's ever downloaded an episode. Who's ever listened to even a few minutes of our podcast noticed. We don't do ads primarily because we don't have sponsors but pretty much we don't do ads and and we try to really bring you content that we think that you will enjoy that. We know that we enjoy so. Thank you exactly. I mean we're going on what three years. Now yeah pretty much. Yeah and here's list of listeners. Abner abernathy where did you get. That is all alphabetical from engine. It somewhere i was just on. I think i heard somewhere. Yes and we started in two thousand eighteen And no one knew what the hell cove. It was really weird. Orange dude was still president. Panther was big at the box office black panther recipe and of course most importantly we. We started our podcast. We did and it's one of those things where like you know when you go to like an old time restaurant you can buy what happened in nineteen eighty six or in those booklets pamphlets. I hope the two thousand eighteen says something about two random people in the tiny state massachusetts decided to do a little podcast that somehow got popular in the netherlands. Hey they go. South carolina i support. Everyone is now trying to pick up one of those things you know like the cracker barrel. Oh yeah i picked up for my ear and just opened up a tombstone disheartening. I think i read in my wants to. You could buy a gallon of milk for like forty five cents. Yeah but you had to go. Get it from the cow herself. I mean our first our first official episode november fifth. Yeah twenty eighteen. Oh yeah this was way back when the opening was way too long and we actually attended to be stuck under the seat. Listen that gimmick work for at least two episode. Lisa got really. Yeah so we evolved. We evolve. We are here. In twenty twenty one. We survive the pandemic. We survived different work schedules and we survived now. Getting paid for any of this. Yes so it is a testament to our stick to witness yup and the middle finger to the pandemic and all that fun stuff so we break out the virtual champagne because the recording quickly kling kling and we toast to all of you who have helped us out stood by us and of course listen to manda and myself ram lawn for all these years. And let's be fair. We do a lot of rambling like the rambling. Mantis rambling mendez. Okay never mind. That sounds dangerous. Yeah yeah so thank you. Everybody cheers to you. Yeah absolutely thank you right now. On what the show now that we've congratulated ourselves and better june june prior month it is. It's pride oh man. I was wearing some really cool sandals rainbow earlier but they gave me blisters worm tonight. But how you pride to everyone who celebrates pride absolutely so and what we do celebrate is the accomplishments and we remember the struggles of the lgbtq plus community. Yes and so now pride month if you did not know. It takes place in june To commemorate the nineteen sixty-nine stonewall riots city no no that's different that's a different thing now at the time. This was the late sixties. Gatherings of gay people in so called gay bars was illegal. And these bars were subject to violent police raids and one of these raids happened at a place called the stonewall in manhattan and during that particularly violent raid to people fought back and this led to a series of protests in the city and out of those was born to gay rights. So that's why june. We celebrate pride month now in typical cheap fashion. Man i put together some you know. Our some of our favorite little picks from movies deal with lgbtq plus issues. So amanda what do you have for us okay. Well i'll go with my first one here. Because now i think too i will amend my statement to my statement to happy to everyone because even if you don't quote celebrate it you're happy for other people exactly you support it so therefore happy to all right. My first pick is probably obvious. I didn't know if you were going to go with it. But i chose philadelphia. Ooh i didn't even think of that. You know something. I didn't either until like three days ago. I thought i got to add that. I actually to this one. Thanks thanks now. Hingst has a reputation for being in a lot of like epic drama movies right at first though he was a comedian he was. He was in comedy which blows my mind. Because let's be fair. You know you think of like castaway like forest all stuff but in nineteen ninety-three at the i want to say the burgeoning of the hiv slash aids epidemic. Or at least. I wanna say the acknowledgement of it right comes. This movie called philadelphia. Which by the way if you're thinking of that john song you're you're there right a tom. Hanks is also stars denzel washington. I forgot about that and he is a fantastic mustache. He it's on level of like what's the other dude who played in the car. Tom selleck so thank you mr mandalorian ray over here By the way if you ever watch his cop drama little tangent here. He still hasn't mustache he will. He will go to his grave that mustache the dens. Yeah end tom. Surfing celebrating selling reverse mortgages which freaks me out. Oh never mind never mind. Also there's mary steenburgen. Who by the way is married to ted danson or ted danza. Dance ted danson white. Tony danza tony danza. There's a name for that. You mix the first and last part of a word with another i last part of the word. I can't remember it's called a lot of people do it phonetically with words and sounds Binny's right so this first of all this is one of the movies is on par with like braveheart. It's a long movie And i don't know if i can give you the whole breakdown. But essentially rare here is. This is a time period and i think for maybe younger listeners. Who maybe wouldn't understand. And of course you know. I didn't understand People had to hide people hide who they are they. They felt a certain or people still feel a certain fear right that not that i can reproduce it but like not being able to express who you are. We love whatever the case may be. This is the same situation em and he is. He's in the luxury business. But he he basically is hiding the fact that he's gay and he does have aids. Andrew beckett is dying. You were impressed with andrew beckett's work hungry. What powerful office has caused them to change his mind. He wants to me tristar. Pictures presents a laws been broken. I what is fair. what is right. You remember launch a jonathan demme picture. So let's talk about what this case is really all about. Did you find andrew back. Because he has eight the general eight minutes. Our loathing our fear in the school drew. mr miller. justice is blind matters sexual orientation. We don't live in this tom. Hanks i love the law. Denzel washington you gain a story about our lives on. Today's a good day. Our fears and equal into our office and our humanity philadelphia. For your call me now something. I do think that we should mention that. This is in the early nineties. And like i said it's at the height of the aids hiv pandemic which unfairly is intrinsically tied at the time to gay men. Yeah right Homosexual men I think that that connotation that stigma that that was there probably not as bad as now like maybe more recent times. We've kind of come to terms with like. Hey you don't have to be gay to get hiv weird riley in the in the early eighties when it first started to appear. They were calling it gay cancer. The original term. It wasn't originally called aids. Which is Auto immune deficiency syndrome acquired immune deficiency syndrome but. It was originally called grid which stood for gay related immune deficiency. That was what it was originally called. Then he started finding out ivy drug users and others have as well so worried by the stigma massive especially at the beginning when they had no idea what was going on. What was causing this right. Yeah people were calling it a punishment from god and they were just saying the worst thing when it was a disease and diseases. Don't play favorite. No they don't and they're not political now they will kill anybody as we've seen with covid. Yeah absolutely yeah and this is right around the time to. I believe i think freddie mercury had already passed by this point but he was also another person that sort of in line where he people kinda new ryan but he didn't outlay come out and say it and then of course he says yes sure have hiv year. Whatever was and dies two days later but anyways so he's tom. Hanks is law. Let's calm lawsuits yet. He has aids and this movie really. They go into detail with makeup rite. Aids is not just a an internal thing. there are physical outward representations like najah walls. and. Like i don't know the specifics but it's one of those things where like you would see somebody in the street. Let's say and it's even mentioned reference in the movie. If this person had these sort of like dots on their face let's say they were automatically assumed to have had aids and therefore be gay. 'cause again you couldn't have aids you work So he in the movie he is doing his best to get his job done and ultimately his partner is not allowed. And i don't know. I didn't i didn't do much research. It's the same now. But ultimately his partner wasn't allowed to make decisions for him couldn't come to the hospital as his significant other as it were or his quote partner. That just didn't exist. Couldn't give blood to him. Couldn't do anything couldn't even signed an npr. If tom hanks character guy wanted it So this is really his fight to get back at the people who eventually will fire him and He proves through his case with denzel washington that he was fired for being gay. Right basically So yes it's a long movie. It's really long but it's definitely worth a watch now. It's one of those things to where like. I want to say the underdog but you know he couldn't find anybody to represent him so here he is. He's like hey i'm coming. I wanna get. I want to get back. A-this justice basically being fired and the only person is gonna take him. It's denzel washington because denzel obviously an amazing human being but it just kind of breaking the that even what twenty years ago thirty years ago. It's yeah it's this weird weird thing people do. It's called appeal to tradition. Where they say. Oh it's been this way so it's gonna stay this way and the human mind can sometimes not perceive that so they just assume that. Oh well you know. Let's say a is the same way it has been forever but it must have been that way and it's like no that they didn't get those rights so i don't wanna spoil although it's been about for thirty years with him but he does want his case He does end up sad ending. It is a sad but ultimately the The point is you need to watch the movie. Now there was a. I think a re-live couple of this was based on to Gentleman who was fired. I can't remember but in any case He was the same situation. It was inspired by a true life story now. This movie is widely sort of accepted as being one of the first major motion picture introductory scenarios to such a horrible disease and also the real people that live it but it also has controversies to because of course we are. These are actors. Hollywood actors playing a real life story and it wasn't as simple as in a three hour movie. I mean again. These so many people who should have had rights didn't have any so the box office. This movie made like insane amount of money. Where can you watch it now. It is like you said pride month so you'll have plenty of places to watch right now if you have a stars account or amazon prime or apple apple. tv no it's it's direct tv at and t. You can watch it for free. You can also buy it in rented the usual places including apple. Tv amazon voodoo. Google play all that fun stuff. But i think what you really want to know the scores so imdb gives a seven point seven hundred ten. But that's like three hundred thousand reading so it's pretty pretty up there metacritic. It looks like it gives it a eighty and tomatoes score but lately it's a i don't wanna say a conic but it's it's a movie that's important and started a trend. Yes great pick. I think Now because i myself mold is dirt I remember when it came out. I remember seeing it in the theater. And i remember it being a phenomena and it sparked a lot of conversation and some people were angry. Yeah a lot of people. Were angry. So but i remember. I remember being widely talked about back. Then what's interesting is. Because now i can see it as it was which was kind of a a a cultural touchstone. Yeah and going back. I can see it now. As a time capsule yes one desert of capturing that that time in our history And so it's it's interesting from both perspectives. So no matter. You know if you're seeing it for the first time or if you've seen it many many years ago watch it again it can hold. It has different levels so if you remember that time period it's a whole different. It's a whole different thing to exactly exactly. So that's why. I think it's a great pick no matter what your perspective is. An for. A lot of people watched back when it came out. They had no idea. I really didn't know what was involved. And and what people go through. You know who who suffered from aids and their family and friends right so yeah and nowadays. Because it's it's more a manageable. It really is disease can live a long time. That was and that was such a huge thing. When that when that was available he s everybody but then when when philadelphia it wasn't it was a death sentence which again this is the and this is probably my generation right but younger folks are probably gonna think we mean really. They didn't. Yeah but it's true even only thirty years ago. People didn't have the right to have their significant other in the hospital room when they were dying. Like yeah. I can't imagine that i can't wait thirty years from now to see all the covid movies. There's gonna be tons honestly. How how many years did take after the boston. Marathon bottoming it was like three years and then After nine eleven oh movies. Oh yeah after that not too so yeah it'll happen it'll happen. That's how the movie years. But ultimately i would say go ahead and watch this movie n i would say. Prepare to be welcomed Overwhelmed with feelings right because it is a tough movie together. It's it's a tough movie if you have heart. Yeah but it's so worth a watch. Because i think at that point you that turning point that is when people started to like tell stories how Lesbian stories tell them aid stories. And it's important. I mean i'm not gonna and gonna sit here and say that it's a. It's a movie that you should you know. Show little kids but when your kids are old enough. Yeah they need to know how we got here. Yeah and what happened. What it was like them at yeah. I think tom tom. Hanks is probably one of the best people to play that role to he fits so perfectly in it and like you were saying time capsule at eight dozen age in the sense of like. Oh that was a ninety s. We can't relate not doesn't prevalent right and it kind of makes me think like holy moly. That's my first pick. And i i would really encourage everyone to watch excellent very good pick. Thank you spry. i didn't even think about it so well. I thought it might be like a little bit too. Not not random not secure enough but i was like you know what i think. Honestly the the problem that had with this episode is that i was gonna find a lot of movies that were either so far obscure that i couldn't get anything for them or they were going to be so mainstream philadelphia that it was going to be like whatever. But you know i it is what it is. We're just happy to be happy and talking about this stuff so my first pick yes is kind of more towards the obscure but it has won some awards so it's not like totally obscure But to to two prefaces in my pick so in the past decade or so we've seen more films and television shows that explore the transgender experience. Yes now sadly many of them deal with transgender people somehow damaged. You know they're portrayed sex workers or victims of hate crimes and things like that. It's called by four yet. Something's wrong with you right. So i mean and that's that's unfortunate. Yes and so and if you think back. The gay community gay community dealt with these same stereotypical roles for decades you know. They were always. They were always the victim or they were. You know portrayed as somehow deviant or something like that. I went like that for such a long time. Now luckily that that that sort of window is becoming. I think shorter yes Thank goodness i mean and so it's becoming You know is becoming less rare than it was to see. Transgender people portrayed as people You know with the same feelings hopes desires everybody else right because that's how that's how it has it. That's how it is so that brings me to the first pick It's a twenty seventeen film and it won the academy award for best foreign language film that year. Oh and it is a chilean movie. It is called a fantastic woman and the film centers around a transgender woman named marina. And she's a waitress at a nightclub. She's an aspiring singer. And all that. And she's in a very loving relationship with a kind olbermann named orlando now on her birthday orlando dies. Suddenly of a brain aneurysm. Oh jeez yeah. So almost immediately after this tragedy orlando's family swoops in and they suspect marina of having something to do with his death. They're completely unacceptable of her completely and just because she is transgender automatically think that she's a prostitute was taking advantage of orlando which was inouye the case they had a wonderful. They show you in the beginning of the movie. What a great relationship that they have so they shut her out a funeral plans. They demand that she leave his wake when she shows up and ultimately she is assaulted and humiliated by both the authorities and orlando's family cheese. Yeah so even. Even the couple's dog that they loved is taken away from her and so she is in this sort of see spiraling in has because the with grief anger and she keeps seeing visions of orlando everywhere. She goes and she she takes this as a sign to fight to be respected as a loving partner and so and that's that's her journey through this movie to try to find some way of finding acceptance. She doesn't really she doesn't need the family's acceptance but she's kind of looking for closure. She wants to make her point that. Hey you know this was a real relationship. We loved each other. I deserve to grieve. And things like that so It's a powerful movie. And it's beautifully shot and the director sebastian. Lilo and it is a chilean film. Their subtitles of course But most notably in. This is what i really. I really kind of gravitated towards when watching this movie the actor who plays marina. Her name is danielle. Vega is a transgender woman. Oh cool and that lends a real authenticity to the film. What when you watch it. That makes it even more powerful right and so that's why. Wow this is really amazing. They deserve represent. People deserve representations and if there are transgender people that can play that role. Why not absolutely absolutely and as she does an amazing job. Yeah so that alone. I think was a huge huge reason. Why i wanted to recommend this film because there are you know tom. Hanks in philadelphia did a great job but he wasn't a member of that community right so there's always going to be that small little lip that he can't cross because he is not part of that community exactly exactly and so to have a transgender woman portray a transgender woman in a manner that is empowering because ultimately i'm not gonna but ultimately she does get a Get a modicum of respect. Self respect back and is probably a spoiler but for those of you who are concerned. She gets the dog back. I was going to ask honestly. And that's that was the most important thing but the dog back. Good good good for the director. And the the people who fought to get the The actress who are yeah absolutely so the scores for the film a fantastic woman. Imdb gives it seven point two out of ten okay and rotten tomatoes ninety four ninety s ninety four percents. So if you wanna see this movie. And i highly recommend it You can run on itunes prime video and google play for three dollars and ninety nine cents so right antastic woman. Check it out good for you. That's awesome I will do my second film here now. This is interesting. Because i didn't. This isn't a feature film it's short. It's from pixar right so all right. This is called out and it's available on disney plus right now streaming it was filmed are sent out last year and about ten minutes long. Put them in the eyes and say dad. I'm right not true. But essentially what it is is. There's a guy named greg and he he comes from a wonderful family. It's he's you know everything is wonderful rosy whatever he has a little dog who just like nuts right as most little terrier type dogs are but he also is one of these unfortunate scenario where he's living a double life right so he has a partner right And he does. His family doesn't know let's put it this way. He doesn't think his family knows And so he's essentially forced with a decision that he has to make and I don't wanna spoil it because of course it is it is Fairly new and it is only about ten minutes incurred your watch it but i will say. It was heartwarming to see pixar. Do something like this. But i also want to bring up the fact that came with criticism and especially from folks of the lgbtq community because it pictures or it promotes idea of like happy endings always happen and acceptance always happens. The truth is that's not fair. that's not true. There are some families who don't speak anymore. There are some families who who disown you know whoever so it did come with that but ultimately it's ten minutes of a really lovable story with You know a dog and a cat. Who have these weird powers to switch minds. And i'm not going to spoil it. It's a pixar. just put it out there But it's super q and You should give it a try. It is available on disney. Plus if you have the streaming account and other than that it. It's just keep the name. But i will say i've got a couple of mentions or do you want to go and then we'll do those afterwards. While before we go there. I just wanted to would you mentioned. Is that that short film got some criticism. Yes and i honestly don't think that's fair because you know for happy endings. That's what movies are about true and a lot of ways be aspirational to be uplifting and yet are plenty of movies out there that you can walk habit to have a balance there why i think the argument. Is you know realism. But i think you need to take that with a grain of salt because first of all. It's an anime feature. The the realism is thrown out. The window takes on that and then the second part here is that sure. This may not be the most realistic ending. But maybe it's the ending that most people want. Yeah and so good on pixar for putting out there. You wanna be sad. What's the first ten minutes of up. Oh my god that movie step will be ruined me for like a year. But here's something interesting have you. Have you seen luca. Oh yes okay. So mr mandalorian. And i we watched for about half an hour of it and we were like you. We don't feel grabbed where we're not feeling very grabbed and then we had dinner and we went back to it and it turns out that it is a lovely movie. I thought it was wonderful. And at the end i thought there was this now. I don't know if it's true right. But the feeling i got was breaking down those barriers or trying to at least of the male to male friendship right so like you can the idea of like you can have a best friend in a powerful love for each other without being a couple right but also getting rid of that stigma of like. Oh you must be gay if you love your friends so much true but there are some there are some people that kind of ship that well which is it's fine. It doesn't have to say it. Exact doesn't say yeah which is great because everybody is entitled to their interpretation of that relationship which i think is great was a normal. Yeah it was. You know it's. It's interesting because i. I've said before in past podcasts. That you know why was luca on disney plus instead of in the theaters right and i think i understand that it's a it's a different. It's very different movie than pixar has put out before And and somebody. Somebody said. And i agree with this. It is the closest that pixar has done to a studio ghibli movie. Yeah joan yeah yeah okay so. This is kind of almost an experimental film. Sure for pixar and it's a little bit easier. I imagine to put it to streaming services rather than putting in theaters yet where it might not do as well. Because it doesn't have as many that. Kick that gimmick. Yeah that kind of you know that hook. Yes yes which. I mean studio ghibli. Of course you kind of sit down and you don't stop throughout the entire film george. The end of this movie. It really was like that But cute movie yeah. I thought the mission was really good too. It was fantastic. Yeah it was like almost photo realistic for a lot of things and when the parents i'm not gonna spoil it but the parents when they were no longer themselves and then turned into the human version of themselves. They were really. I love the parents. It was my father. My rudolph and jim gaffe again. Oh jim gaffe again. That makes a lot of sas. Yes they were. They were really great. That was good or your second. Pick all right so and okay. So i'm going to bring it down again So one one really terrible experience that some in the gay community of had to endure is what is referred to as conversion therapy gross in effect. It's an attempt to fix. Air quotes a person's sexual identity through various and potentially dangerous psychological and physical means now children were and in some instances are being sent to facilities that are mostly run by evangelical christian organizations to so called. Pray the gay away if you if you get that you've probably heard that before. So many states and counties have effectively banned this practice in the united states but it's still exists So my second pick gives with the true story of the son of a baptist preacher in arkansas. Who sends his gay son to undergo this conversion therapy. It's called boy erased chairman. I want to do well. I want you to have a great life. I love you but we cannot see a way you can live onto this week. If we're going to fundamentally go against the grain about beliefs cheer dumping the truth. I think about men. I don't know why sorry who to parents. Send you up for program to fix you Your perfectly normal very healthy teenage boy do things for you. You're a few saint. Welcome to the refuge program. You cannot be born a homosexual. This is the lie into choice. Fake it till you make a come to man. You are not save yourselves. God will not love you. The way that you are is what you want. Who's going to strike this team down tough time. I'm going to advice. Tell them wherever they want to hear. Apart unless you really convention huge or even want to go through announced just a moment a moment god and i love my son other to a more complicated. We are not finished. I am because you won't listen straw sitting here. Tell him how long pretend. I hate my father. I donate my father in. Where is all this anger coming. Because you're making me angry. Now they say sometimes. You got hurt a child in order to help them. But i'm not any so. I don't want to pretend anymore. I've had to ask myself. And god if i'm ready to. I think i've heard this nicole kidman and russell crowe and there. The parents yes. I think i've heard of this yet. So their son jarrod undergoes. What can only be described as psychological torture from these so-called counselors. Jared sees other young men in the program being alienated beaten with bibles nearly drowned in a bathtub. It's awful what they do now so there have been some criticisms about the film's portrayal of this as it's kind of. It's there's not a whole lot of subtlety. Sure it's a bit on the nose with characterizations as well. So especially jared parents once again nicole kidman and russell crowe australia. Yeah so that's the kind of thing that i quite. I kind of threw me off a little bit They're both very capable actors. You know discounting les miz with but neither are from the american south and they're sort of almost stereotypical portrayals and sometimes obvious fake accents. Really kind of take you out of it a little bit now got to the top. You gotta kinda go with. That is because it's a very. It's a fairly humorless movie and a because of the topic and the subject matter. Yes but it's just you know it just. It gets almost there but for some reason caucasian and russell crowe kinda like take out of it a little bit now. The understanding is that it is a true story okay. it's based on a twenty sixteen memoir by an lgbtq activist named garard conley. Yeah and that that alone kind of gives it a little bit more weight. Gravitas dan if it were just fictional account but it's based on a true account of what happened at one of these facilities with the conversion therapy so it really kind of makes you makes you feel for the character and the struggles and that he and others have gone through. That's kind of crazy practices. But you know like me. I struggled to wrap my head around. Why this kind of thing happens still happens. And boy erased doesn't really answer that question but it does give you some understanding of how this terrible practice can ruin families and even end lives via you know suicide and things like that so it is. I think it's important because it is a practice that still goes on. That's nice yeah. It has been banned in many states as well but should there are some that still allow the practice to continue so while it's not perfect it is. I think it's an important movie If that's something that you feel like you you want to know more information about or you kind of want to understand that. This is something that really happens. Then yes i would recommend seeing boy erased. It's not an easy to watch. But you know. A lot of so-called important films in are hard to watch. Yeah but it can be important to do that. So as far as the scores go It gets a six point nine out of ten on the internet movie database and eighty percent on rotten tomatoes. If you wanna watch this film if you have a premium subscription to the nbc owned streaming service peacock you can watch it right now for free or you can rent it from most of the major streaming platforms like tunes voodoo prime video. Google play or three dollars and ninety nine cents. So i do not wanna leave this on a down note so i'm going to give you a word ok variant. I have much to talk about okay. Here's the thing. I was worried that this was going to be a crap show. I really was. I was like please. Do not make loki into this really bad tv sitcom character but it is not happening so far. I love kevin pay so variant. So i don't wanna spoil anything but You gotta watch loki. It's everyone's disney plus. Now you know how dc does that university where you have to from flashes and eighteen. Different superman are even on called the. Cw i exactly what is it. What is it again mount diverse. Thank you mr mandalorian so That's kind of what's going on right now. Right and i think this is one of the first time it's been conceptualized for the marvel universe especially for like characters So i have to bones with the first one is located hair now. I know that sounds silly. But i think about loki. And i think about him in the movie What was it the second or third ironman or whatever he had longer hair and then suddenly he goes through the time cube thing and he meets the tv a. and his hair is shorter. And i don't like it. I think it's just not it doesn't flow. I know it's silly. So that would be a harriet. Oh my second one is also a harriet. One of the female versions of loki has blonde hair. And i know that sounds silly. But i just wanted everything to be like almost copy ish but i understand why but other than that. It's like doctor who on steroids love doctor. Who but loki is really good right now absolutely now. I have some theories. Oh do share. So one of my theories is that so apparently in this you know. He explained to To loki a through a charmingly animated character miss next know basically. The time line was sort of put back together by the time keepers. These mysterious the who are these timekeepers. Yes so it is my belief that these timekeepers do not exist. That they're fabricating that they that they basically are figureheads and they they're not real and basically everything has just been coasting. They've just been doing this job over and over and they don't that's why they need. Yeah that's why they're the you can't meet them. You can't see them. They're not real. I don't think they're real. I don't know i. I don't know that's a really good theory. I think something bigger going to happen with them. Though so another thing and this is not my theory but the theory that i read is that you know how lucky plan is kind of he wants to take over. You wants to usurp the timekeepers. And do that. And one theory that i read the actually kind of makes sense is that he gets to that point right. He gets to that point where he's gonna meet timekeepers. He's going to enact a plan and so the and what he finds is another. Loki has already done it and he's paessed. Yeah and the one reason that kind of makes sense is The there's an actor richard e grant. Oh i love him. He is in loki in an undisclosed role is confirmed that he has been cast in. Loki and people are thinking he's going to be old loki really and that he is responsible he has already taken over the timekeepers because that was low key goal. Richard e grant is a fantastic. He's amazing he's a wonderful actor. Honestly i would be so. I'm so excited to see that. He's he's going to be. He's gotta to be that the picture on instagram of Him in Tom huddleston picture together on the So i mean. I am very excited. I like that theory lot. That's basically old logie. Who has already taken over the years. And that's what loki finds there when he gets there like sorry. Continuous things already done. You know i the shows that are really good. Job with the nineteen fifties i. It's almost like follow for some people who played the game follow. It's kind of like you're preparing to go into a bomb shelter aesthetic. Yeah it's really going to. I love the nineteen fifties waiting for him to find like a smeg fridge. And i'm like i want that fridge. Yeah man loki is living up super exceeding expectations and to go quickly back to the topic. basically loki has confirmed yup that he's bisexual or gender fluid. Wanna use that. Yeah so it was one of those whereas it wasn't like a prominent pronunciation of this is it. It was just throw away. That was like yeah like. It was matter of fact which can be exactly it was like. Oh yeah we're a big deal at this point just okay. There are some people kind of like that's not cannon but first of all he's a god we don't even know what can really get you. Don't get to decide what candidates does. Yeah exactly you're not being paid. It's not up to you yes i coined booknotes low key. God so how is there. An older loki. I'm supposed to be tunnel. Yes agent so he just age existence. Oh well they're not. They're not immortal specifically. they're incredibly long-lived. Yes so like. If he is the key at the end of time he could very well be old right. Yeah so that's kind of where they're going to so there while you know the gods he has guardian gosnell them they they can live for you know thousands of years. They're not completely eternal. What movie was it. We're lucky was like yeah we can. We live like humans to give it. Take a thousand years. Yeah something like that. So they're for all intents and purposes immortal. But not really. Yeah not killed. This is true. This is true but yeah so. That's you know that's kind of how they're that's that's comic book canon. Yeah so but. I'm sure they're going to go with it because that makes sense well it. Will you know what we think we know. Marvel but new scarlet which was yeah. I'm looking forward to black widow. I am and i'm not only because i really just have not been invested in that character but we'll see we'll have you seen the trailer for shanxi in the legend of the ten rings I was confused. I'm not sure what i was supposed to be. Seen is like a an ultra trailer. That's coming out putting together. There was a second trailer that was just dropped a couple of days ago. Oh i haven't seen it yet and it's good. It's really good. Yeah well we'll see. I'm interested so i have a couple of honorable mentions lease so my first one is a lifetime. Movie called girl like me gwen arrojo story. It's based on true. Unfortunately a true story of a transgender woman named gwen who she has a very tough tough life but she has a loving supportive family and in the end that isn't enough to sustain her and also are just horrible but it's a lifetime movies. Do you expect that kind of stuff right but it is. It is a very intriguing story. Wanted to watch it also broaches. That sort of we not only say that that type of person who understands that a person is transgender. And just doesn't care right like so like someone who's cool right because that's not always portrayed in film either that's true you know and this lifetime movie does a really good job of you know an accepting person like that The second one is. And i'm sure lots of people seem to but the danish grow with eddie redmayne. I thought that was a fantastic movie on. If you're unaware he plays a a transgender woman who was preparing to go under one of the first like Yeah yeah and i mean this is like one thousand nine hundred. Eighty s time right. So it's it's not necessarily very. Well done i guess or commonly done but the idea here is it's a. It's a story of the struggle of his wife who loves him dearly accepting this and although she does it also gives her side of things like missing him but anyways he also won an oscar for i think so check it out very cool. Excellent all right so i think that kind of wraps it up for one hundred episode. I know this is a little bit long. But i think i think it was good. We had some really cool choices. Yeah absolutely absolutely and it was an important one right so like we don't normally go like super. What's the word like serious makes go. We're not usually as serious but with it being pride month with one hundred episode and also with just as being like humans just wanted to be like. Hey this stuff exists. Yeah and it's not like you know. Certain corporations that just conveniently rainbow stuff on their logo. goes Just to show is real and it's like you know i mean it's not like we. Have you know any any nefarious interest in doing something we. We just wanted to do it because we thought it was the right thing to do. Yeah there you go so never happen again. We're not all about doing the right thing. So all right next dive. Oh no not yet. I know. I know although once again. The trailer for halloween kills. Yup i can't even so you okay. Okay okay very exciting. So upset about and jamie lee. Curtis is coming back yeah. I'm just thrilled anyway. Aside from that summer. Oh yeah we're here.

Bingo two point break. The cast next week hangs ten with the history of the surf. Movie point for a break. That's right And speaking of summertime. And i you know i hate summer. I mean i don't hate summer but it's full of things that are supposed to be fun but aren't like sand lake sand. Yeah weather don't even know. I hate sand. I sweat like a floridian laying asphalt and i- broil like a delicious maine lobster. Yeah you are super irish. I am i start. I start at like a raw shrimp color. And i quickly go to lobster shell oil lobster so yeah. That's fun Now something else. That is supposed to be fun but is not is the topic of our next podcast. Which is summer camp. Summer can't summer camp. Oh the brochures make it sound gray canoeing roderick campfires crafts in reality summer.

"You're about to enter the world of Michael's of all your kids alone. Eunice michaels developed. This is MC now so I will early just so I could watch the finale of cheers. Oh Great Because aired yesterday or because I fell asleep watching the second the penultimate if you will Last night and so I was like well. I got to know what happens and I could have sworn to you Clark that the last scene in cheers was Sam Malone closing cheers. Yeah like for good turning the lights off in walking up the stairs. I think that's what people were thinking was going to happen but I could've sworn I saw it as a kid. Oh Okay I see what you're saying and so I'm expecting this to happen. Diane Chambers. Who Played With Shelly? Along along comes back for the last three episodes. I didn't know that happened right but I'm like. Oh that makes sense. He's going to run away with her and then closed down the Bar. And say hey. I'm done with the bar life right kind of like our friend. Miles did with victory park loosely based something loosely based on the story without all the legal issues and then they get on the plane spoiler alert they get on a plane then he goes back and then he realizes everything that he's been looking for in life. Is there at the bar has friends? Or they're You know he's got a great life people look up to them and then he satisfied right and he just stays at the bar. I did not expect that to happen. I really thought he was going to close the ball. I was waiting for. I kept pausing the episode thinking. Oh they're going to wrap this up in three minutes right but it never happened known. So where did I get this memory from you? I know idea are there are there are a few things that I kind of remember like that. Like oh I thought it went this way and then it really ended up being like that. But you know you're seeing it through a perspective of a of a child right. What kind of bar bar experience did you have when you were five and I I grew up in a ball and Board at a ball? You were the yelling kid that people were like what the Hell is. When I kid you know those people that walk in with the little Strap with the baby on their chest. That was me I was the baby. Get this baby. Red Bull Miami. I you know well. The thing is They did shoot a few scenes. What the with that staircase but not a lot would be going on when in the staircase. There's a few scenes that are actually shot outside the bar because you know they they have a actual studio and then they would have to go to Boston where the bar is. Shoot all those little. Yeah the one where they're playing with a SAM's or Kelsey grammer Frazier's car alarm. It was a norm and They had a fly all the way to Boston. Right shoot that yeah. But that's I don't know why I don't know why you wouldn't may be thought of that scene like all these years. I imagine this is what I was looking forward to was that Sam was gonNA close the bar for good. He was done with that rush. Shut it down one. Last it was the final night of cheers right. Turn off the light. He was the last one there and he walks up and I was ready to cry and be emotional now but I mean and it didn't happen like that. He just went on. Brennan the bar but like how they yeah. I like how they I like how they ended. It was very good right. This hit for the past few years. He has been trying to find a purpose to his life and then he realized this whole time. The purposes being there at cheers. Let me tell you if I was a ex relief ballplayer where I ran a bar and got the banks all the time. I would have no problem with that purpose a month. He was tired with that. That was the whole reason that he was looking for something else. Well you know what I'd trade live with him announced and Ted Danson Heck. Yeah or Sam alone. The only person I'm disappointed didn't have a better character. Arc was Rebecca Kirstie Alley in the very beginning. She was very stern like this character. And then a few seasons leaving the actually gave her a personality and some stories and some really great growth potential and then at the end. The last few seasons she's neurotic. She's goes back to being like a crazy character. Unbelievable Person Right you get to see a little bit of that in the in the in the beginning like an y season six right is he a little bit of her neuro Her neurotic ten but it just gets overboard. Yeah and final season. Oh in the final episode. Where she's like on marrying a plumber right term. Tom Barringer right. Oh that was fantastic. That can that can happen to anybody better than her right. But your the only thing you could you could have left the series that nobody would care right right but I mean in in your kinda hitting on something else. They did pick be perfect character to have a spin off rally. You've and now that you've finished cheer right so I had a little extra time this morning and I said what am I going to watch next? I'm not really ready to die back into a relationship of eleven season series. Which is frazier. Right maybe I can take a break and do taxi. Which is like what okay. 'cause I like the Loyd and Danny Devito and there's a ton of people on that yet so I thought well maybe that's what I'm GonNa do next well. Frazier was suggested next. I watched the first episode And I don't know that I'm GONNA get cheers vibes from it. I mean I like. Oh you're you'RE I. It's totally different for me. It's too sophisticated versus but as frazier progresses Econo- see where frazier starts to do the same thing that Rebecca does. He starts to get a little crazy himself and his dynamic between him and his producer. Ross on the show is is fantastic. It's awesome it's one of the better relationships. I've ever seen in a television show but it also gets Dumb Oh yeah. He Gets Dumb but John Mahoney his dad is what kind of that showdown to right the only likable kid. Well other than frazier himself right. He's the only likable character on that. Show I don't know what I'm going to commit to that I might watch like the first season and then take a break watch to seize the taxi and then go back. It's not going to be something I bench like. I did with cheers. Eat what you could do with frazier as you could cherry pick the episodes that have the returning characters peers. That's really the only reason why I want to watch the frazier series. Is I want to see the crossover which years. Yeah the the one episode. I remember was frazier Sam Go into Seattle. That one was Kinda cool but then the one where Norman and And cliff going visit frazier. That one was pretty good. I mean it's been so long since I've Seen Frazier. I can't. I can't really recall specific memories. You WanNA give cheers ten. Oh It's ten of my book it's a classic American Sitcom it's Star Trek Picard. Okay six point five in my book still going on that. The last week's episode was really good and by really good. I mean at seven like I didn't finish watching. Do Watch it it. Although you started pat on the background so the beginning part is really kind of boring. Like the rest of the series. But then as it progresses that episode progresses it gets really really good. I would recommend like the story actually starts at that point studios being tested right. He's flip the switch like ally standing right outside the door. We have a lot of people. Here they're running back and forth. It's a big deal. A lot of stuff going on Eric. Shooting some stuff here. We're shooting some stuff in here. It's a lot of stuff going on today like that. We need to. We need to test this place. There's a indoor soccer tournament. Yeah well you know. We've got a lot of stuff going. I like when it's high energy like this. There's a lot of stuff going on there All right so this clip came out I guess it was this weekend and it makes me laugh so hard. Let me see if I can get up on the screen so you guys can view it as well. I'm Eric didn't even mention the logo today. I saw it holds like. Wow that's my favorite. Is it really describe it for the people who can't see the fruit? Roll up with Eric Star. Nice one of my favorite podcasts. That made it about six up. I don't even think it made it that far. It did and they actually eight. Maybe it was canceled. Should've called the fruit. Roll up a free fruit by the foot. Sorry we were talking about that. I said it shouldn't be gushers. Deny remember podcast do okay. Oh Yeah I'm glad you're pointing all right. So this is one. And only Oprah Winfrey giving a speech on stage about balance and Health Revolution Yours. Just because you're GONNA be defining it for yourself to meet all things in balance and just so you know. I Love Oprah just like anybody else but this clip is hilarious. Watch balance doesn't mean all things are equal or a piece at all time. That sounded like it. It sounds okay. Ecstasy Oprah Winfrey fallen state and laughs it by the audience. Yeah we laughed off. No she gets back up whether I'm shoes but just talking about balance and then literally I wish mark was sitting here just because right now. He's like he's on a spiritual journey he found. Okay let me get Marc right handed. He's talking right outside my door. He's close by and Just because he's like right now he's talking about life being balanced and putting these out in the universe things coming towards him. La La whatever our marks coming in and then so for headset on and then for him to like see this. It's GONNA be hilarious mark. Have you seen this video oprah outside about your like your life getting on track and Oh God finally health and balanced out in the universe? Dj spy named to claim it. So here's my definition of what wellness being sweet migration very empowered by this bar for yourself wellness to meet all things in balance and balanced doesn't mean all things are equal or a piece of all time shoes. What God I love how. That's exact. Same other Oprah came out okay. Shattered my leg. Oh my marketing. His Ted talk on directing acting doesn't always mean about balance about. Oh that's planned for the wrong stilettos wellness beef yours because you're gonNA be defining it for yourself. Well this to meet all things in balance and balance doesn't mean all things are equal peace behind. I wish I could get like. I love screaming that I wished that happened like you know. I don't know we should overdubbed some out. Why are they with? My jumbled up like he's like five steps on the way down there's a there's a there's a split second. She looks like she's bouncing herself on. I've never fallen from two inches before. So you're basically telling me everything I feel is bull Michael Inspiring inspired. When you're talking about ball make sure you don't fall off so today's a very big day. We are doing the twenty twenty weight loss challenge. Where spider and Eric going head-to-head? Let's all no one knows where hymie is Friday. I'm I said I'll be there some Friday. That doesn't mean anything. Yeah maybe. He's all hugged double some girl in the band again.

Mc now tasting the brain you and I am the brain on their state. Bill Mike those know her phone. I'm on the phone a five day. A Indiana V. E. Five Day. I'll tell me on the phone. Call me on the phone. Let me on the phone. Hello my name. Is John Phillips? How are you doing good I'm just looking over your resume. You submitted with us and just want to confirm a couple things. That's that's okay. You say you are proficient. I think right at the wrong number resume were you were you the wound sitting in this For Administrative Assistant.

Can I bring friend like us on facebook at facebook dot com forward slash M. Z? Now you're listening to this is M Z now. So Leap Day was yesterday or this weekend or whenever it was and they had all these specials like seven eleven. Had A special where you could go and get a whole pizza for two twenty-nine they've been doing that more than just yesterday. Well this is for. This was a leap day special. That's what I was two dollars. And Twenty nine cents to twenty nine and So all these specials comme estimate said by the way if you haven't had seven eleven speeds it's way better than little CAESARS. Way Better like if you go get a five dollar hot and ready from little CAESARS. Oh I forgot you. Mike's Sorry there you go And then there's more okay all right. We're good now. So if you get a five dollar hot and ready from little CAESARS and then you go to seven eleven but they make it right when you order it right and it's super cheesy right. It's not sitting around her hot lamps like the five dollar hot and readies. Everyone's whereas by way better the fine print for the two twenty-nine for for leap day was at participating locations only and growing up as a kid. You'd always a commercial flight. Mcdonald's or Burger King. And here's a special for this period of time and it's at participating locations only. I've never been to a place where they weren't participating but now it makes me WanNa go like save money and buy a McDonald's or something just not participate in any we become like Yeah they have the two for one Ribs or whatever we're not participating in that it's full price. I sorta deny everybody everything. You're the jerk. We yeah in fact he charge extra they ask right Marshall Tax March to the beat of our own draw exercise of fifty cents right but no it says on the commercial the nationwide commercial. Yeah it also says participating locations and we're not one of those thank you we're different. We're born different. That's our slogan that'd be McDonald's born different. Little CAESARS breadsticks. Are There Batta crazy? Is those little kid at Kmart. There is little caesars in there icy place in K. Mart. Yeah it was the same I see. And then they had little caesars in there my God. We have to introduce our special guest today. She's back we haven't seen her since Corks giving twenty nineteen. She's back in. Studio to WHIP YOU GUYS INTO SHAPE. Lease a personal trainers worker. And she's actually the rating Queen of the mist She's mysterious giving twenty nineteen and you might be the final officers giving out. I don't know if we're GONNA do it again. Case just whip us and said shaping us what you want. Let's make sure he's not. He's not in here right now. Do you put that on your resume and trying to procure more clients for personal training like I won towards giving. They don't even know actually marketing yourself. Oh it's going to be given like poke classes and dancing studio with wood floors and some mirrors but yes carpet wants. Don't really work out that. Well you know the portable polls that fall you know how about that poll at what was it Posse all my God. Femi go there. We go there. We can go there. I mean it's across the street. Oh my God probably ladder waiver. There will be gunfire in the parking. They may lose a limb going to be open. That's all I need to know where these strip clubs find their shifts have some good. I don't know I want you to McDonald's and seven eleven Michael to strip club has got a little caesars. Sit Down. I'm not going to five dollars own pizza all a lap dance. Don't ask don't ask dancer for the five dollar hot and ready totally different John. All right. Let's get ready. This is the so first off. We weren't going to do something like this again. We said this three years ago. Whatever but We ran out of material. It's now here we are doing it again. Is the twenty twenty weight loss competition? And we have Eric Star yet fighter the DJ and filling in Mark Garcia for Hymie. The Tattoo Guy. Oh he decided he was going to take that Spot there yeah but close to it all right. I'm just spiders tall guy. He's this field highest spider diamond. Yes that's I'm trying to thank you guys out because I came ready as you can see you do it. Changed Pocono concede out. We were working is just wasn't prepared. I jumped. They can sort of fun all right so the last time we did this competition everyone gained weight and then we had extended another like six weeks. And then I think most everyone loves a compound or two. I think hymie one by eleven pounds. Run around the block that yeah. Hey it works but when we started figuring out the rules for this one. We're like well we're not gonNA reward somebody for losing one ow right. It just not worth that. So we're going to give you something to work towards the Grand. Prize is two hundred dollars. But we've broken down this year into three tiers so depending on how much weight you lose. So the winner is who lost the most weight? Somebody lost five pounds and the other people lost two or three than the person who lost five pounds going to a winner. Now how much you get paid out depends on how much weight you lost all right so tier one. If you lose between one to five pounds you win fifty dollars if you lose six to nineteen pounds you win one hundred dollars and if you lose twenty pounds or more you win the grand total of two hundred dollars and you have six weeks to do this now in between all of that we are going to give you some sort of bonus challenges that will do. We'll throw these out throughout the randomly during a show and there's little challenges that if you win you'll get a pound added to your total loss. So let's say you lose Nineteen let's say you lose eighteen pounds right but you went to these bonus rounds you get two bonus points are pounds added to your total loss count. You'll automatically be eligible for the maximum of two hundred dollars. That makes sense until he lost and Eric always wants the only exercise too much. Yeah I know it sounds like we're doing school where they're all like we have extra credit for those they after class for two three. Because we've given you guys the opportunity to to really show us what you can do and you'd never have so now we're making you work for it so this is what we're going to do. Is that a read some shade here since the only one that's participated so far that was directly. Because I actually I I WANNA point for. This gesture just had a chain. And Oh you'd have that seventies look going on hair open shirt earlier. They kinda did. I wasn't paying attention. He's not your legs now. You know that you're attracted to my hair. I could see I could see him six weeks for him to make that extra pound like the incremental pounds. I'd like wait a minute completely hairless right where the ball oil yourselves. Let's go to our personal trainer. Expert here is twenty pounds. Can these guys for at least twenty pounds if they really worked at in six weeks? Yes I've done it before with plenty of client. Okay one of the other things that we brought up. So we do have a contestant and has a handicap that spider. He has low T. Which in the gay community means. He doesn't have a lot of gossip in in this competition. He has low testosterone. Okay and so we have allowed him to take whatever he needs to get his Assadourian levels to a certain point to where he can actually lose weight. Otherwise it's not gonna it's not a fair you know what I mean. You're not letting anybody take any supplements any fat burners so you can do that okay. He is special needs the extra. Yes and yes I recommend now. Can you afford it? That's the other question. Okay yes you got the black market. One now is different Thailand part. We take them as well. Yeah anything about your Your Reproductive System. My sex drive. Yeah you're GONNA make better right. Be like no more please. God Exercise Burn Calories With You. Exercise that actually. Yeah so you'll be good but you worry about future children. Don't worry about me talking. I'm only thirteen minutes. Still working to starbuck discount. Can we just go to starbucks giving Kirby's discount and they I watch all all right I think like you said spider needs the sauce to even have a fair chance so we could still do it. It's just I don't think it's as fast. I'm thirty nine. Oh basically forty okay. It's never too late on but he doesn't eat and look at them. No sure that works and get plenty of people who are like well. I eat once a day. I don't know why okay we'll because your body's going to hold onto that your body needs attrition day literally going to hold onto that you're gonNA put on pounds just by holding onto that. So that's why like when you're when you have kids. I Dunno if I have kids but for those who have kids when you have kids you're taught to feed them every two three hours. That's how we're supposed to be eating our whole life and not like bill burgers and stuff every two to three hours. No you portion yourself. So you're supposed to be eating like five meals a day or three meals a day if you can't eat that much and then two snacks in between. But you have to have something in your body like a Granola bar or some almonds or something every two to three hours to keep your metabolism like to speed it up. 'cause if not that's how it goes down if you start you know eating bad and if you eat like so if you eat a Pizza Burger. How do you feel like you don't want anything? You're not supposed to feel like that. You're supposed to feel light when you get get from the table. Olive Garden is out of the question and the bread. That's that's a Lotta Cart. Now what if you have a salad once a day but Drink alcohol and beer. Okay see now. If you're an alcoholic drink alcohol drinker. You need to stick to like Vodka Moore like anything with water vodka. That's it you can't be drinking like beer or you can be mixing having cocktails sweetie and it's heavy on you. I've also heard the silver Tequila is real good. Yeah so those are the words that in moderation. If you're a week challenging a few had to go for a friend which was spider so gotTa Clark. Let's get you on the headset microphone. Quick Start Roscoe you ready. Let's we're going to do the official way and I hope our skill doesn't break on their what we got it all balanced out this year.

You've lost weight that's great. You did say when did you start on your like challenge whenever you get back over here like two weeks ago but actually I haven't been doing for it. But why are you surprised that you're that low? Yeah that's really good. Surprised that low but actually. This is the one that I wanted to do. More this because populace here oppressor all right spider next. My guess is three hundred this morning. That was just my guess I would say three hundred hundred though. He'll take three hundred four hundred now. All right clocking in two eighty to eighty eight. I if you go all right. Two hundred eighty pounds. What's the heaviest you've ever been? Oh that's easily.

I'm on a I'm on a the truckstop. Dia Beef Jerky inbreeding. Almonds Walnuts and sausages. Monday through Friday. I can I. Can I know? Go and sit down you a strapped. Yeah you're well back to you. Bob Dressed up in a suit. Just for thirty seconds credible worth it looks good man. I know you'll Julia. He's the best looking guy everybody here except for For your husband. He was an actor and well he was gonNA play a part in our film but every time we asked you. You don't Clark to be on it. Everybody's like unit. Just say they were looking for him whenever we were. Yeah go all right. Oh well just a recap. How did these guys lose twenty pounds in six weeks? The number one thing is eating clean so changing your diet. The truckstop Diet that I'm doing is good. That's recommend that to them. You're frozen frozen food. I just nuts nuts and meat. Saw Diet would be the methamphetamines. Yeah no I. Would they stick to Like your entree would be like fish as in Philadelphia causeway some and then two sides yes salmon and into sites as in like rice or vegetables any type of vegetables and stay away from sugar and salt so everything has to be grilled or baked or steamed And then like your entree could be fish. It could be it. Could be ground beef but ground beef has to be ninety percent up. Lean what about deer Meat Venison? That's fine too more leaner than remember. Yes it is like grass fed by semi like those are the best ones and more expensive Carson's Jewish sites. So yes and those are the best kind that you want That orange chicken and ground Turkey so those could be your entree's in the year. Two sites always rice or sweet potato in any type of vegetables for snacks are probably the best thing right. Yeah slow almonds snicker. Bars WanNa Know Granola Bar Yogurt. But do like in your men so you could do like six meals a day so but it has to be every two to three hours And then again. If y'all can't do the six meals then do three meals and then like three six and between but just to keep something in your body if you really. WanNa meet just go so It's very possible So first of all eating clean and then putting in the work which that's where I come in so real quick question because I I recently went through a weight loss journey back bragging bastard. He's I don't have from. I went from two fifty down to one eighty nine now. I put a little bit back on because the holidays and graduation Yeah that was about what fifty five pounds. Something like that But really was more proud of was I went from thirty point. Three percent body fat down to about twelve point seven. I and that's why I was going to have you seen husband. I have my little monitor. Where do you really have that? I don't have it with you can do that body fat. Yes it'd be like. I don't even know how you're still standing. There's no Muslim they're the only suggestion I have is get jumper up the wrote. Well that's cardio Like when I work out I do jump squats or jump jumping ledges or jump rope clean. So that's what works because you keep that cardio you're doing cardio at the same time with weights so everybody makes that mistake of just doing cardio and then you have loose skin. You just get slim runners body but if you want to lose weight and get toned you have to do weights and actually weights burns more fat than cardio her yet. Yeah through and another thing. Muscle weighs more than fat So that's another thing you can do it. Yes Oh twenty guarantees. Yeah let me figure out what six weeks from now middle of April. What if what if he lose more than April fourteenth or so? It's in the range of the two hundred dollars hundred two hundred s it more about two hundred dollars and I'll buy you a meal somewhere where you can gain our first. Mcdonald's I'll tell you the jack in the box pizza. Six weeks is the week of April twelve. What's that Sunday? That's the week after my twelve day. We won't do it then the week after that we will give you bonus week in nineteen th. We'll be checking. Yeah and that's it before I like. I feel like I'm going to do this. You Better Eric said last time. And he didn't do. I'm right here. What does that mean? Transforming like crazy and they're not completely eating clean but just by me working them out like I told him I got to show up to show up and I handled the rest. That's what I like. I was just show up and I'll handle with twenty dollars. Thank God you pay more money at all right good well. There's this is it. We're GONNA. Yeah so we will. We will do little way ends. Maybe here and there April nineteenth or whatever is when. We'll do the official finale and I hope that we can spend two hundred dollars fifty dollars. Oh I win that two hundred and spend it the next day favorite pleasure. I believe that Hot Ready Strip club if we're doing on the nineteenth. Oh that is a very super smart thing to do. I mean I do the same. Let me think about it. I wouldn't. I would invest it all right back. Knee needs I I He had one of his classmates here. I just talked to that while. Yay and she's in here's just like I'm actually his acting partner and I'm like you can be honest with us. How terrible there's no. He's actually really good.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 290 Midsommar

"The news this evening is speculation concerning the real facts behind the Department of Health the now spent about a radioactive spill. So postal have a cut yesterday at the state nuclear plant. You'll die only to live again in a younger the body. Then you could tell me if the operation was a success in your brain you're listening to the really awful movies movies. podcast a celebration of Genre Cinema. Hi My name is Chris. Along with Jeff we talk about movies. That aren't really awful at all horror action. kung-fu musicals post apocalyptic women in prison films much much more from downtown Toronto headquarters US episode to Ninety Midsummer Meets Omar mid Somare. It's summer midsummer night's dream with puck and etc.. It's been a long time since I've read that one. Sweden were recording this in mid-winter. Yeah it's outside cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. Whatever that means? But that's okay because midwinter goes away followed by the ditch bring midsummer which arguably the best time of the year it is it is just one of the best horror films the year. We'll discuss US soon. ooh tough to say a interesting. This is our astor who brought us the somewhat. How can you be somewhat exemplary? This in very strong heredity irrespective years released. I don't recall exactly where you're ready Terry was released. You recall thing twenty eight hundred eighteen you. It was one of the year. Long people derided exhibit kind of went a bit weird and cutting near the end with alert. This does to listen. You can see them all away that once normal humour Nian but that was an incredible movie in the sense that it was a really really incisive portrait of grief and what it feels like to lose a loved one in. Yes I mean. They didn't even need the supernatural in that one. I would have said exactly the same. Just have the family dissolution. Yeah it happened in front of you. And the argument humint immense and the performance was just unbelievable. They come into the his wailing and whaling. But we all settles in a funeral loses her daughter again. I guess we're talking about plot points in movie. That came out a couple of years ago. I thought the time I've lamented this on the podcast. Anytime that he he should've been nominated for best actress Oscars but of course horror films rarely get looked at through that lamp by the county goater so he was overlooked but great film. This is his followup. This one Is a four was more of a family picture. Four into a folklore boy. Yeah I was thinking too. Because there's a movie that features a bunch of hitchhikers going in to Sweden and getting lost and that was finally into the galaxy. Yes it was cited by Kirk Hammett as one of his favorites of the year. The ritual the ritual pockets. I believe we did. And it's interesting. How that one also featured well the wilds of Sweden and also something? A moment of grief that galvanized the Group of friends to go out and go on a rather unorthodox vacation. Well that's the thing I mean. I do like folklore a lot and when we talk about full quarter you have to go right back to not the originator but one of the Exemplars of John The wicker man. Of course it and it's hard to defined what full core is but oftentimes you have these populaces that are that are isolated from the rest of the civilized world. They're sort of archaic in the way they live the rituals and so on. And then you have the outsider coming in you know the insider outsider. Sorry Damn looking at going. Whoa what's going on here? I have the other hand you have the insiders looking the outsider Russa with distrust stands sort of I mean kind of Distrust look at them and saying like what are they doing here. Or are they gonNA upset the the gaps at the Apple Cart etc etc.. We've been here all these years doing what we do do. In some cases are lured to the area and other cases they just happened upon them in this one. We're not gonNA say what's what but the the thing with folklore is at the end of the day. Eric in the film. You always know the weird shit is going to go down and that the intruders central bruiser always always gonna get what's coming to them. There's never been a four. I've seen at least where the outsiders get the better of Hail not. Yeah Yeah let's thinking I guess. The subtle distinction he gets is throw the hills have eyes into that. Maybe there should probably cake element yet. Should have like some ritualistic. Pagan ritual gives that gives the this away in the very tailored to you. Don't need to have the are either because the witches cited as a recent folklore E- Robert Rigors away even though it's a period piece so is a full core now appeared piece whether that at least the which was infused with the kind of A WHO Anna Baptist Lutheran heavy duty Protestant dynamic of these people mayflower types who come to America and establish that was heavily infused accused religion. So I guess I'm negating my own point of the hills have is not that I guess into stuff. It's for folks. Maybe Texas chainsaw even even but they don't they do that dynamic to this. These are more inside or outside our movies. If you don't have the full core element to it more sort of in some cases you could almost argued there Hicksville so in kid in the case of Health Advisor. Uta Hicks and massacre. For sure. I you know it's not I mean I. I was reading a list today. Some of the best while Corsie put visit prices while he had directed by he started in witchfinder general which again is more like the wish to strict period piece number one on the list is what I serve you. One of my favorite films in the genre being been released. Kill this who and I don't WanNa see too much movie because it's one is a movie that would be Distort spoilers and so on so yeah folklorist Vietnam definitely enforce before. The wicker remained remake. That came out of what you cited so off which I love door for other reasons. Yes Nicholas Cage and just a wackadoo movie and it's this this is just another woman isn't doodle with some of those songs and dancing around the mayflower. Yeah yeah well. Both bears flowers make holes. Is here sorry. Sorry yeah but play a prominent fixture here and it's pretty funny that I just keep thinking stare to heaven in my head. Oh Yeah Queen exactly. It's just funny here that we've talked about the most popular profession in an all of horror as opposed to the most popular profession in North America. which is the truck driver? Hundreds of thousands of people are truck drivers this would be of course popular populace popular popularity enjoy. Doing it's sheer number ocular but in horror a disproportionate number of who knew this was such a thing as students anthro politics. Yeah it doesn't matter. They spanned genres the Italian cannibal genre. So ubiquitous of these guys with a notepad typically guys with some sometimes female assistance go into the DNA in Indonesia in Saifi ripoffs if she says Yeah Nineteen Times in the movie and these guys despite their Bona Fide for men and anthropologists are the out there. If they're so popular. Oh Okay yes. I went on a date with an anthropologist. been a memorable day she is. I don't know the exact type type which he studies bones for For a police investigation. And yes I it was zoe additional sister off your show but yeah like she so not one of these people who digs through old bones but more recent vintage vintage for you know for the likes of law and order. Svu that kind of thing does bones. Actually Oh yeah just to get his bed in the morning. And this is the crew that comprises the group that sets off to Sweden for their weird vacation and we should say what sets them off because in the ritual is the death of friend in a knifing incident in a in a seven eleven. Or whatever this one. There's serious serious murder suicide suicide that plagues well that affects the main character in. It's her sibling and her parents were the victims of this thing. And WHOA I was on board with that. I was questioned my partner and said can you really gas a house with a car in the way people commit suicide doing. I think maybe I thank you very much needed. Like you know the entire fleet of Formula One Racers to do this but they actually had some sort of tape tape duct tape to tape down the doors. Let any oxygen prevent the Escape of any oxygen. I thought man saw the parents lying there. Holy Crap I said. I don't know if this is possible physically to do this. I think it's a little wonky but men. I was on board with that and going I don't care I'm buying him in critical faculties aside on men if this is a check that the director can cash later on. What a Whiz Bang Way to start a move? And then that shades of hereditary rotate. Once again I mean somebody dealing with the grief of wellness case love lawns parent and nowhere to and yeah. So she basically goes as a distraction but he really wasn't supposed to go in the first place and this would be. I guess. Florence Pews. WHO's liquidity good actress she's from the UK but your accent was just banging on characters? Name Game Danny. Yeah he was in there. There's a serious. How little drummer boy? Based on the novels only carry okay character by Currently and that's why the first time I sort of took note of her and then I watched that movie movie fighting with my family which is like a bio pic of the W page. Okay every Grappler bio-pic like of all people with their family. I guess a biopic but I guess he's good. The movie suffered without her. He's very charming. You'll for sure. And she sort of wills herself into this group of anthropologists to come along because rise leading one of them she's dating one of them and rightly they don't invite her along because they just figure boy strip voice trip plus this she's she's not far enough removed from her grieving period to really be on board with the kind of hijinks. That would be like this kind of laddish outing to the extent that it is because they're invited by one of their colleagues to join him and meet his family in the small Swedish town and he shows them pictures and I thought this was kind of a telegraph. He shows them pictures of his family and he calls it Commun- and their bedecked in flowing white robes. I loved the Indie Rock Band polyphonic spree. Or US thinking with Oughta those guys in years maybe the Waco compound gone referenced in the movie and I was thinking okay. Small town remote. What town it's not even town? It's a town to the extent waco was a town The the compound in Waco Waco is a town. Obviously but I I was thinking village elhage resists village and no no night Shyamalan to be seen here but yeah I thought looking at these photos. I don't know if I want WanNa any part of that. I went to a weird private school and they had this sort of May pole festivities liberties weird German private school and they would actually celebrate pagan things like this and I always thought it was kind of bizarre hard to have a maypole into run around it and that they were doing this in elementary school. I didn't take harpignies thought. What how does this? What kind of what are my parents? Got Me into it. But these people and I'm talking about the anthropologists in their group of friends they introduced into this world in an amazing way eh through this outstanding cinematography and a very Something that offends your senses literally because the camera turns over in several several instances. And you're going down this deserted road and then the camera flips. It gave me Vertigo. I was I had to look away and I can only imagine what people people who have experienced in the cinema when this was happening it makes me ill because this before or after you know in the movie over really yeah. Yeah that would have swayed and I was like Holy Shit. I can't believe in newsrooms. Yeah and then. They were driving well when they're driving when they when they first got the. Oh I see okay I want you looked at hand. There was plants growing rooms and so this group of people was introduced to to believe Pele. I could watch this movie on shrooms to say that I learned but anyway this group of people is welcomed. It's not exactly with open arms by this commune. Because they're kept at a at a distance in a way otherwise they're welcoming coming. Yeah I think in the probably similar extent to what Swedes themselves would behave like Ed. Nordic I guess distance European distance not the warmth food experience and say I don't know Peru or Argentina or something it's a very distant kind of welcome and they start to experience. Yeah you mentioned these odd feelings. That are odd the odd people that are part of this Commun- very regimented very physically cle- alike all blondes all lacking facial expressions for the most part is all dressed in these flowing. diaphanous Africa's bro words my favorite disorienting. Another thing that acidy sort of surreal nature all his is perpetual Sun. The fact that Ed Sweeney in this time of year the sun doesn't go down so broad daylight twenty four hours a day a week and when the assemble group are coming Magana rooms and one of them says with goes. Oh It's like ten pm that's impossible. Yeah this guy is so bright if only that were the case right here. It's so gloomy with six hours of sunlight right down to deal with Twenty four hours. Somebody that either your well. Luckily I'm sure yeah I was thinking like to the garage and cones would be fucked up then when you had the candidate Roger's roasters chicken. Oh my gosh I I do think that was a bit or credit like I appreciate the extent to which a movie can degenerate generate fears. In pure daylight I think Texas chainsaw is a prime example this but there are others but but the question. Is this movie jerry fierce. That's what we have to discuss. I think it did but I think this could have really benefited from a nighttime bonfire as well and so. I appreciate the fact that this was front and loaded with Sun and fears to the extent that the fears prolonged out. Probably take umbrage with that. Because there's a turning point in this film where I think. The debits outweigh the the pros and it was the opposite for the first hour. I would say what is your turning point point you see. We call it. The climax of the film like in the sensors literal climax spoil it I know I think it was more the characterization and my inability to buy into the fact that these people would be friends specifically the youngest member of their group. Who is this guy? He seemed like he stepped out of a judd appetite film. Who is just making wise? Cracks in hands will poulter here. I believe so he ends up with fending ice. It will pull through guys see the ends up offending the host by urinating on one of their sacred Shakra trees. And this guy. He's on after that's for sure. No he did not fit in with this sober serious group of academics. And they're like I can't buy into certain people hanging out with one another and and he just stood out like a sore thumb to meet both his wiser remarks but also his behavior and the fact that he seemed like five years their junior and and no PhD student. self-respecting would be associated with this imbecile. But it's funny to the extent that these guys are invested in their work because two of them it turns out are wanting to study this Swedish dissertations on this. Yeah and they go into thanks for that. Yes and they go into this lengthy discussion of the various meanings of the symbols. That are adorned. The walls of their structures. In this little community. And the runes runes again on and on with runes over and over and they are exposed to these rituals near the ruins were ruinous to me. I I thought like I mean. The horror genre is renowned for people who don't know when to get out when the going is good. But for God's Hey I mean these. These are specialists in this field. And you think we're going to have to spoil some of it because there's a specific ritual that takes place that should had these guys running for the hills and again it's not original. It's been done before in other movies. Do Tell like this particular way af does that particular way. But the concept behind it is like straddling Logan's run or something. Oh yes I I hope. I don't have the term Gironde. Aside is that when you kill some unnamed drama you screamed your automobile of leaping from Great Heights Carry Asterik obviously so yeah and so Jerry Toronto Toronto side where you have through either by Choisir. Maybe they've gotten too old to contribute to the group however way you slice it these people it's like the opposite of what the spartans would have done with children who could not contribute to the state of Sparta back in the day so like the old ones I think it's the age of seventy seventy two let me to to Logan's run was what thirty so seventy two is when you put yourself out to pasture willingly and this was I thought was pretty spectacular. So the the two elder statesman people of the group commit suicide from jumping from leads Limestone cliffs with spectacular results. I mean I was thinking of History of violence almost with a half a face. I was almost thinking. Some of the violence. Toward the end of the witch this was very little chance in hereditary. If whenever call the the young daughter she gets smacked face first into a stop sign and that was how she oh that was her demise and I believe it was quite similar in terms of the special effects so there was a lot of connected thread. Between this and hereditary reminds me of Princess Di's demise carpal tunnel syndrome. Got Pretty good right. I'm on you don't have anything but that that they were watching this and I thought how they got out of. It was fairly interesting interesting. Because there's this cultural split and that the antropologist lose their dispassionate observer status and go this is fucking Ingore Barrick. Why did you not tip us off that people would be committing suicide in front of us and then the hosts and convinced them that this is part of their culture? They've been doing for a years when people go comes up with him. He is part of the society and he's always trying on. This is okay. Don't worry about it this is this is how do it this is. How do I have aside with the Westerners on this because at the very least they should have been informed? This was gonNA transpire if they oh by the way. Something's going to happen between the first course in the second concordes you might want to steel yourself. You know. You don't have to exact entirely at least kind of like you say something's something's afoot. Something's afoot and given that. This is voluntary area. Not Someone just plucked from their ranks for cannibalism or something. You'd say that you could probably not that it's justified. You at least east. Understand it as a dispassionate. Observer is voluntary boys. Interesting is if the plumbing doesn't kill you. Mallet will by somebody else. Also that point. Yeah death death by whack a mole and might have merited inclusion in her book death by umbrella. Although we did have a hammer death so you could throw list under the rubric of a Hammer Demise. So it means to be swimming mark into Harley Quinn would be this thing. I was wondering when the a one gentleman was marching with this thing like what it was. I said to my partner that they're gonNA probably ring this giant Gong in anticipation of grabbing some elk from the wilderness and cutting. Its is out force-feeding it that's where my mind with going. I did not know this would be used to crush the skull of one of the elders and I thought man that that was that was bad as about the midway. Point of this was when I began to get off the wagon for for this one win. The he had this internal battle between these warring academics and width and whether they should collaborate in their study of this cult. Commune you were. They should work independently and the ludicrous nature to which they're the length that go through to find their you know they. They take photographs when you're not supposed to. They do not engage with their research with the host at all they're doing it with such subterfuge and then mendacity acidy that I find it ridiculous. Like sort of use. Her friend has an intermediary. There's a bit of a language barrier to on some do speak perfect fluent English stone. So Oh yeah they are but still I mean these are people who brought you into their community. What are you gonNA start like? You can jeopardize that level of trust and start going broke. But that's when and this started to lose me when as their members of their party start getting lost a British couple one member of whom goes missing. And there's as much talk about what happened to him because he's a newlywed. And why would he leave his get up and grabs backpack and go back into the city and as members the ranks third to disappear. It starts silliness ended up some Go rogue and other ones go native and sort of wasn't really telegraph if well just sort of happened in as far as I'm concerned I'm going to say who or what. What have you? But I didn't really buy it. No and but and it's weird that the anthropologist colonist drive the story but they're not the ones whose performances were particularly good. There's this Chris Chris Pratt looking guy and he's kind of I don't even know the actor's name he's fairly Pity from the good place he wants to replace on there. I've seen it. Yeah that's a great show by the way and Ted Danson. He's Ted Danson is dancing his way through great performance yet He's good on the show and it's a great show. There's the guy who's running around naked but he looks like Lagos Squad version of Chris Pratt but I don't know who he was but I mean everything's carried. Sorry Bhai Florence Pugh. And she's just so amazing like she's like five foot two zero screening. He has factor. Here is is totally gaunter. delivers really good grounded performances. And she's brought into this may pull mayflower type. May Queen elaborate ceremony. ME THAT WE WON'T WE WON'T SPOIL IT for people haven't seen it but she drives everything but the screenwriters director unwisely redirect the story away from her to the and follow the folly of these two imbeciles Duke it out over publisher perish Ebola's in the final maybe fifteen twenty minutes sort of various back to her by. Then you're right. They they keep on cutting back forth to calamities. Befalling certain characters arisen whatnot and I'm not going to get into inter for fear of spoiling some of the juiciest near the end of well juicy nece or party To what extent is at one or the other like I was on board for the first hour and I was just I was on the edge of my seat of just individuals were so startling and the mushrooms notwithstanding it was so disorienting to go through what the characters were going through and to to to the extent that they were gas lit and the extent to which Pele was involved with the Commun- as an acolyte and as a friend the he was the intermediary joining the two he was superb. He was great he was fantastic but toward the latter half. I'm not sure I bought into the scare. So they really not the Gore toward the end they did and that's again that's the trope that will befall all all folklore. You know that eventually we're she is going to happen. Usually involves some pagan ritual. Some Straw effigy on Africa Africa. Or maybe an animal or something. Or what have you or something animalistic. Perhaps and so. You know it's coming and so this is a matter of all. How good is it? Is it going to beep talk to me. Nothing Beats Woodward being burned alive in the wicker man in the edifice in the woman. Maybe the bone Tomahawk. Maybe there's some ritualistic pagan ask elements of that. Maybe I'm not sure that's native native American. Were they believe so. I think that's maybe more of an exemplar floor and that's that really brought the Gore as well as enrich realistically just destroy the the the explorers that one and that was like that's the film of the of the year whenever that that came out. Twenty two thousand sixteen. Yeah that was just balls to the wall with flawless Remember we we did a a list of the top ten movies of the year for that a year. We put it up on the site really awful movies dot Com Nereo. Yeah and he was just before they released Tomahawk. So Mach was absent from at least by head we had seen it. Had we just waited would have been talked to because we wanted to sell. I want to be like the first there and if we would have waited maybe another week or two it would have been boom rocket to the top with a bullet so well. It's tough I feel like I. The narrative investment I had was is not the same as the sole observer to the extent that the wicker man was like I felt like the insider outsider dynamic was better explore through that and this one well done until lead that parts. That's what it was such an outsider in this sense the everything he saw. Paul Tim like. I know it's sort of like accepted this Kazan so make good cool thing. A Little Cap from dissertation commands is he had no diplomatic force like like Pella welcoming in into the world. He was just a detective observer and he was just a detach that way. So yeah you can't Komo put them in the same mentioned in the same breath although people aren't just because of the fact that they're in the same source sub-genre of were called folklore. So yeah I feel you like. This was a new twist to the extent that it wasn't a lost in the woods movie where people meet this group so it was people they were the extent they were welcomed. I think that's what makes it stand alone. I mean it's highly originally Ari asked her if he's got. I don't want to call them failures but these are a two six ambitious ambitious. Yeah that renter even Hereditary I I just my biggest issue was willing to pacing thing after the daughter's demise was so explosive the ending I don't it was was just this weird and it so it didn't really follow came by before him and I was I was going to give a shoutout. Gabriel Byrne who I was just totally on board with. It hasn't really made much sense. Sei anything no but he's always just a strong presence of his relationship with a son was really incredible as the family unit dissolved with the death of the daughter thought man. They're dynamic so good it was just such a character-driven dramatic masterpiece in unusable. He's able to coach Cooper for his actors because there were a couple of good performances in this one not everybody quoted themselves. I well will poulter was like you said he's One serious academic lloc as they said in Swedish but Josh is the the black guy he was like heavy from the place yeah. He's he was peppering them with questions ends about their their group and he's very knowledgeable about their particular practices and he's just dismissed outright and treated like so shabbily early by these guys but his character was not developed whatsoever compared with the others who get love interests to get it back stories even even the two Brits who are just basically thrown in in there as an afterthought almost because we don't meet them in the beginning they just they are so much more involved and she just sort of gets left to question action little tiny practices. What is this thing mean? What does this thing mean? And when you're doing this what does this mean and so there's really nothing left nothing developed. They're not really developing one of the iconic images of this movie that they had a lot of posters and stuff was the deformed Denison of the island and they really do anything at all with that character other than show the face every now and again to sell the audience and that was a bit of a loss opportunity was an afterthought completely because one of the characters mentioned how they they choose their seers soothsayers through a process of inbreeding. Explain she wasn't here. Whatever this Caravaggio Kendra by as a conceit for that kind of Group A group that it seems as so cohesive and sophisticated I would buy it with the likes of the ritual or The hills have eyes type people but these people were just so almost worldly worldly and reserved and multi-lingual and coherent is just didn't make any sense for them to be like that could happen. I don't know but but it just doesn't seem very impractical not very particularly like didn't have the northern European practicality a cool character last visually but not much with with it so. Yeah so I guess it's just the point where the podcast where we get to what we've learned amid Soma the seventy two year mark. We're about the camp off the cliff. Oh my God yeah. So what did I learn that. Well this is. This is not short moved by any means. So it's a lengthy movies about two and a half hours some might say it's a language film and he goes takes society. Get where it has to go But there is a longer cutting the existence there's directors and that's that tax on another half hour of Gore this movie originally receive Stephen x rating from the NPA and rem hats. You Excise thirty minutes in order to get the coveted our rating I I think they're released after afternoon. became out became. I think it came out and beat. Summer came out in the summertime. Maybe a couple of weeks later that he did release director's director's cut is an unrated versions of film. But I really want to give a handsome and see that and see if the IDA Gore's is there for the sake of the Gore for it actually does doc flesh out the story some more. So what other news for very long film. Well at least the short attention spans that we have nowadays live music. Just keep getting longer and longer long. I've watched I've been building a bit on movies. I missed the last few months and not one is less than two hours. I don't know why the most of them go towards doing a half hour. I don't know whatever happened to the good old ninety minutes comedy. There's just a thing of the past now but I was gonna say my God the aforementioned Judd Apple Towel all he goes to and a half two and four birdie and he's like muscled making one thousand nine hundred five dollars God so yeah but I I'm interested in checking out the three hour director's cut so if you're listening which I doubt you argue. Maybe wanted to send me a copy of that. That'd be that'd be fun that's interesting and speaking of Mr Astor. His he's he's he's cited repulsion and the thing is to of his favorites now which is really interesting because I mean these are two favorites as well. I'm not as big on the thing is you are but I'm more of a repulsion guy but you can't help but put both of those in your top thirty and top fifty. God knows little things like when you love horror as much as we do. I don't even know if I could do a top thirty. I would have to sub subdivide these into their respective a sub genre categories like full out of the top ten for each sub genre owner. I mean this is such a beloved I mean yeah genre this would be tough. I can do a top five because I've been holding out for quite a while its all-time my my favorite. But I'm not going to go. Its favourite again if you if you dispense with quality then my throat demons and my top but by no means is the LUMBERTO Baba's at heavy metal infused Gore fest in any way a piece of filmmaking quality. Let's be sure about men. Do I love that movie another thing. I learned that this was. I don't think filled in Sweden. If I'm not mistaken this was Hungary. Yes so it's kind of weird that homeland the indeed. It is beautiful country and and that didn't take me away from it like in my mind. I was in Sweden. So there are certain circumstances where you're eating your meatball all being taken to Eastern Europe for for budget purposes. Look on film shit on the cheap. And this I I was totally on board with everything about this. And in terms of the scenery so setting horror so imbued with sense of place in the successful ones have that place whether it camp crystal the lake or or the the incredible Massachusetts starkness of the witch and pre settlement pretty United States existence pre we can Constitution premium whatever so So the first hour. I'm totally again. Enraptured hurt by this and the last fifteen minutes I'm on board as well a lull toward the latter third. So I'm hesitant to give it as high as it should have. There've been some of these elements cut out get a solid three and a half and man like is horror in good hands. These days like people malign the genre for all the time and that but there's constantly whether it's Jordan Peele or these types of guys infusing it with this surfeit of energy that it hasn't hasn't seen in a while like from two thousand fifteen and now we are just not period but we are in revitalization after like the early two thousands suit dismal proceedings that the likes of saw and hostel rot. So that was a very like say eight years of just I mean humdrum drum crappy releases and now we are just we just gotTa sit back and enjoy what's coming. I saw the preview for this. Oh what was it might have been maybe during a screening of it I wanna say it's it's I duNno. Bud I turn my girlfriend said WHOA men. This is something the thing is. I'm seeing this. I have to see this. I'm on board so Ari Astor I mean good for you man. This is I think. Danny Danny Devito of all peoples production has put this out if he's got more on board. I don't see why he won't be doing more. Because this man is like earning one hundred and fifty million his last two. If not one hundred million these are both box office smashes both this and hereditary and I would say mostly well deserved so mermen. Okay well you gave it three stars and a half three and a half full star giving a two and a half stars. Oh well just in the sense that everything that all Woah was supposed to shock us. I was GONNA come and I'm not saying it's because I'm such a smart viewer it just I've been there. I've been down this road I've seen it. I could have predicted that the death of the elders that could have predicted all the crazy near the end. Because what's telegraph in the poster we know coming with. I thought they didn't particularly handle the bare well. In the extent that it sounds like a cool home. Masha as far as concerns of the wicker man remake Nicholas Cage. Also God. I was GonNa say if you WANNA see awesome bear movie back country which we podcast it. That is fantastic. She'll animal moving to to hikers Lawson. -tario other yeah but that like we don't want to spoil the bear grizzly. It's the granddaddy of them for sure. That was more than minor than a major say but yeah they. They could've done more with the bear but I thought it was a pretty neat conceit and I didn't necessarily see that one coming but let's say if this were to this is two and a half hours and this were two hours Hours I would give it a full four. But I mean there's lagging components underdeveloped characters. There was a certain I could have benefited from from a nighttime scare and some good ritual around the campfire. I'm always up for a good fire scare at night when people like the flames in the smoke in the flickering off the faces. I think that's just the dynamite thing to fill and if it's done really well it can succeed so once again. I with the with the admission. I really did enjoy it. I was two and a half hours well-spent as far as I was concerned with thinking. Maybe maybe three that for you now. I'm going to kill me because I it's because of the existence just this director's cut because I know that there's something I'll do something out there and it's something that is Gloria and it's tapping my window right now with Hook for a hand because of that. Yeah I WANNA see that and I think that's going to give up to the three three and a half a mark as far as I'm concerned so this version of of midsummer this I'm sticking with the two and a half and this is someone who just like much Opel's consternation like lauded hereditary and I said yeah one of the best of the year I shared. Shit it's sad it's crap because ambiguously and so on that's fine yeah I gave four stars but this one is a bit of a software slump. It's a wee bit see I would give hereditary three or and but I could be convinced if I I I think they both demand repeat viewings and I could flip my ratings between the two because I think strangely hereditary had fewer debits. But I didn't enjoy it as much so you could go either way. I could give this this one three and you could argue me into three and a half or hereditary. It could go either way. Y- be that as it may the man with the alliterative alliterative First and last name. They're like keep them coming buddy like this. This is just another like great voice and another great you know autour in the in the space and we hope you guys continue to listen to our show. Were get bring you lots of You know engaging horror for in action discussions on the New Year. That's you know again like we touched on every genre. Do and we've got a great animal attack movie in the works. What's that we're going to be discussing looking for cats in the theater and I'm dying for you to see it because I wanted to? I just WANNA misery that film on the podcast when he sees musicals basical see. I've made no bones about my just antipathy toward the horrendous music of Andrew Lloyd Webber Garb is complete fucking hack back and garbage going on discusses the extent to which like John a composer John Williams will. I don't want to say he's inspired by. He Apes Beethoven and he rips off all these great classical composers men enter. Lloyd Webber is just a God. He's like apart he's not he's not even I don't know what he is. Memories is one of the worst pieces of music ever ever written like. It's up there with who let the dogs out there with Anything any of the of produce Hootie and the blowfish or Hootie Solo produce stuff blow Faye no not behind the boards like Dr Dre but because remember it's just me the willie produced by Darius Rucker.

What We're Watching: SYTYCD Auditions 4 and West Wing "2162 Votes"

"Hello and welcome to round two of the parenting, roundabout podcast. I'm Katherine Lecco. And I'm here with Terry RO say, hi, Terry alot usually on this podcast. We talk about parenting issues. But once a week Terry, I like to get together to discuss TV movies, books and other entertainment topics because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting for change. So this week, we resume our west wing watch by concluding season six the episode two thousand one hundred and sixty two votes Mun verse there were some votes in, you can dance. So judges additions week four. We're. Was entertaining usual. We they're still doing kind of the, you know, disease the. The. You could they had the pursue this time, some, the person with Allah piece. The guy from the wrong side of the track with a striking looking couple. They are ma'am. Yes, yes, they were fun to. They were. They were but they milked to L pretty good. The show did them for a long time. Again, lots of really good dancing of which they were very fond and then like a token, no thrown in the middle. Yeah. Like wanna Slyke there's all this great dancing. And then this guy comes out and salsas by himself. And it's like I mean, I'm a person who could not do that, even I can't do any kind of dance who am I to judge? But it seemed to my extremely untrained that he was clearly not as good as the others. So why how do they get their first place? Yeah. Yeah. Why did they pick him to put on TV? And then they montage of bunch of much better dancers, just to call girl from the audience. It's it just seems like. You know, I felt a little. So, okay. But it just seemed kind of random like, okay we gotta have one person very good. You. You. Yeah. I mean it's like they're trying to sort of mixing up a little bit. And, you know, not just have like talk to them dance judge them the end like they're coming up with these other via like you said storyline. You've you've talked the storyline. Right. We're going to have you on, because you have something interesting, even though you know, you might not be qualified. Yeah. Relieve in a storyline. Did he know? But there's just too. Equalize the girl from the audience bring someone out. Yes. I thought they were gonna pull somebody who's like from a previous season is in actual dancer, but now. Just subject. So that, that just seemed kind of unfortunate. I mean if he if he had a kid, I wondered understand because it could be another book, you can be apparent, they abandoned that storyline apparently with this one sweetness, you know, enough of that made their point moving on Obama's doing it anymore. Although he does say the couple of been together for seven months. I can't wait to judge your children senior. I know like, wow. Okay. I mean they seem like likes nice couple. I hope good. Good for them. Yeah. I enjoyed watching, I enjoy watching most. Yeah. I mean it's just. During much like judges one two, three. Uh-huh. Entertaining. Dancing? Not much heartbreak right of that's one tap dancing. I was happy to see tap dancing. This is the first staffer they've had featured. Right, right. Yeah. And to us, good to feel like I've seen a lot of robotics in a lot of contemporary and a smattering a ballroom. But yet, she was working, they always have to have their one tap dancer. Yeah, I liked her, and we did from a different podcast from two point with Kristen Burt. We learn that. In fact, these are not don't random people off the street have come into dance. They have this is really their second at least round of light. Right. They had people actually going out to all the places like we used to see and or not because skip it, but. Somebody has already done that initial work. And so are serving up these people are, you know, kind of the pick of the bunch to go through this and also learned from that podcast that, in fact, the ten of the top ten of already been picked. It's like all of this stuff is not live. It's all done, and she can't wait for us to see who they are. It's like I would like to know where they are now. How much more of this, this, oh, wheel spinning do we get? Right. And there's even going to be a week off next week. Yes. Where they're not kissing. Anybody? We've seen through all these weeks of auditions. Actually, in the top ten. I wonder they must be right. I would hope so. I mean why else would they be cause quite a few of them have been told that they are the best thing that ever happened to dance? So how could they not being? There have been more than ten that have been told that. You're right. It's a Lockward. So you're all the best thing, which are slightly more best than the other slightly Bester. It's going to be tough to pick got a whole academy full of the best. And then some people who just you're not the best but we wanna see what you do. So, you know, maybe they have explosive growth and then they become the dust. Yes, do that. I'd like to know like you're up against all the people who are already amazing. And yes, the most, you know, the best thing this ever happened. Right. And you're like while you're pretty good. We'd like to see more. What are they gonna do? We're not sure you can do anything else. But what the heck ticket cousin? We printed up too many. We got unload, the. You get a ticket and you spies it give the girl from the audience a ticket. Yeah. Or said come back next year dance dances, another random do. Will. So there's next next week is a week off. And then the week after that is the fifth week of additions. I don't I don't get that. And then then it's the academy. Right. How many than how many weeks of, of whittling them down to get before we finally get to the ten that already been chosen energised sitting around, Akiva ahead? I wonder this with all these reality shows, because like the bachelorette is on and they're still episodes. So all these people have to if you win or lose whatever happens. You have just go home and not tell anybody. Yeah. In that. How, how is that possible? How your cower there enough humans of all the humans involved in these? All of them has a slip of the tongue. And I gotta say that the people on some of these shows, and they don't look like the types who would abide by. What do they do these people to keep them silent a candidate imagine? It's whatever they did Ted Danson to keep him from. Spill yet on that release Nastro. They all said that he was terrible. So I guess there are ways. But anyway, how that how hard it would be to have made this tremendous leap forward in your passionate profession, and then not have not be able to tell anybody I went on what, you know, right? Step out, could you just not every day. Just chilling. Right. Right. We wanna get to the to the actual competition is live. So, yes, I along was. Would you lose your momentum shouldn't? You just go right into I don't understand I suppose there's a reason they their training. And they're doing stuff. They're, they're in some facility far removed from. Top secret of them down. Rejected would have to like also not say. Probably not the hardest things they do based on what I see them doing on that. So. Not talk. Is he's a cake in there, right? Okay. So the west way this was the season finale for season six the democratic convention, where they had to choose a nominee. Shopped Rama scissors. Pulling names. And lots of like switcher ruse and intrigue, and yes, double crossing. Guy making a speech that inspires people to his strikes. So were you shocked shocked that rustled and get the nomination? I know you've been expecting at all. No, I was not shocked. I are Matt Santos would somehow. You're like Helen Santos doing a little dance. See do you do? Yeah. He sure did who could possibly expected that. The character played by Jimmy Smits would go on to be the nominee. They mentioned that too in the in the outcast. The west wing weekly podcast, they had a live show, and Lawrence O'Donnell, who was a writer on the show. See credited with this episode. I don't know John wells wrote the episode. Yeah, he had written a previous one but he talked about, when they were specifically when they were talking about the vice presidential nominee, which ends up being mcgarry. You talked about how well we had to because we didn't there were no other characters that you already knew that ongoing Ricky Rafferty you sit up Mel, Harris as this person to be reckoned with. And then we never saw for one thing. But he also mentioned during that part, you know, that you have to try to build suspense, but also like, right? When that Jimmy Smits is the big. Big catch. So obviously, something's gonna get on a multi episode arc to be a loser. Right. Probably not so much. So with all due respect to Gary cole- your name to sir, but. But she to up together. I gotta figure it's going to be Jimmy smell. Yeah. But many. Oh, things give they watched the show. Are they aware that Leo has been a history that might you know, I don't know be problematic for vice presidential contender. Also that the guy at a heart attack like five minutes ago. I just I don't underst- I would have liked to have seen the discussion that ended with that decision. You know, the guy who just told you drop out of the race in his really been telling you to drop out of the race for the last several episodes. And, oh, by the way, he's got major health problems. You know, he also had a drug problem alcoholism, and, you know, he's never been vetted for anything political, but it'll be fine. I mean I love Leo. But come on, right? Explain this choice to me. Josh? We're not gonna do that, because all the big dramatic moments recently have been well, not all of them, fine. But a lot of things have been behind closed doors. Yes. And I'm thinking, you know, mild spoiler alert, but this is going to kill him. What are we killing realized we'll know actually the actor's death that literally killed him? So can't really blame that on Josh. But just seems like I mean I get that you want somebody with experience, but surely, there must be somebody else, surely, we've seen somebody else in these six years of this series, that you could dust dry like offering forward, so many. Senators and representatives have. Yeah. Have our old passed over? I just, you know, I don't understand is just a way to keep John Spencer in the front of the story. And again, I'm fine with that. I love him. I love Leo. And I'm happy to have any storyline that's gonna, but this just seems so ill advised. Well, there you go Santos mcgarry. Ladies and gentlemen democratic contenders. Let's talk some more about the episode. In addition to the that was the main plot, right? We also had, of course the. Doing saga of the space shuttle, not only her this base station, not only the impending doom of the astronauts, was the impending doom of whoever gave the whatever issue, it s. So, yes, I can't talk to about that one. Great because I do not know exactly. Yes. And unlike the west wing weekly podcast, which spoiled it in great detail after fortunately, they did give a warning, which is helpful to podcast listeners, because I could tell Catherine where turn it off not helpful to the people who are actually in the room for the live pot. Just, you know, a well, but yell let's, let's put that the discussion of that plotline off at a little while except to say that thankfully, somebody gave Kate Akot mouth or something was the curls were less offensive this time. You know, just just they were just weighed down by the gravitas of this situation situation. It just just relaxed the curls in her hair. It's so it's so gloom and doom. Yes. Well that was a season of the west wing. Yeah. Wow. Not a good season of the west one, but a season of the west one, well, not a good one, but we did get Jimmy Smits in Alan Alda outlets show stats tro, and he will get, you know, that's, that's what next season is going to be. I think they were they talk about on the podcast that John wells called in Joshua Malina, and he thought he was gonna get let go. And instead, they say we found this story line for you. So you're gonna have this money episodes, and he's like, well that is better than zero assure it was, I happen to be looking on Wikipedia and looking at the number of this for for season seven they did break down. How many episodes people had and you can see from that, that it's going to be a much more campaign focused season down a White House focus focused season. Right. So, you know wave. Hello. Oh, to your White House people, whenever you see them because it might be a while before you see them again. Well on the podcast, you got plenty of I don't, I don't wanna say hot air, but you got plenty of detail from the mind Lawrence O'Donnell. You did. Indeed, didn't you man likes to talk. And he's pretty proud of his, his expertise, which one not, you know, he's successful that what he's doing. So you go gun right there was there was a lot more of him than there was Kate Harper who all resin? They're barely spoke. She she did speak some in the part that was redacted for spoilers, but still not that much interestingly. But not much. Yeah. The parts that weren't redacted, who is spending a lotta time, confirming how obnoxious Joshua Malina is a co. Oh, yes. I think he's pretty much admitted to that. So he is I think proud of it. Much like Lawrence. Yes. Yes. Well, you know, good for them. Healthy self esteem. So is there anything else about this particular episode that we need to talk about? So I mean, I did enjoy the whole like drama of it all of who's gonna be the nominee and of, yes, you know, out Bundy trying to spoil things was a great. I had forgotten about that.
