I found wednesday at noon for some reason. I'm not sure it's three on the east coast and then hike my friends in medical school just like oh i you know. I did an autopsy on a cadaver or something. These are just words. I've heard her use. These might not be used proper context. And i'm like that's cool. I just you know. I went and danced like a monkey for people. So they'd forget about death A couple of hours. Like i know i got nothing. So it's not even like i'm so superior in successful majority in both ways i can't. I can't really relate to twenty seven year olds. Who don't know what they're doing with their life and i also can't relate to people who know what they're doing and are doing like incredible jeff's like a lawyer but they all look at you that way you understand that right. They look at you and they go. Oh my god. Our friend taylor is amazing. She selling out shows and she's you know she's got a comedy special and she's working on another one and she's you know everybody. That's just the way you were made. I think you're you're kind of famous back home. Are you famous. You like shit. Taylor famous taylor. I don't look. I made the wikipedia notable alumni for my high school. so it's me and two baseball players porn star so for action actual porn star actress. And i i haven't seen her stop.

I mean if you're honest with yourself. Do you want to be. That person who gets recognized everywhere. It's hard to be truthful about. You know what i mean because no one has to say. I want to be fucking famous but a lot of people do you know i know i secretly secretly do. Do you not so see. Not really more famous. Your brother is the new captain america. Your sister was nominated for an oscar. Your mom is one of the most beloved actresses or actors of all time and your stepdad is an amazing actor. Who's done so many all over your why in twenty five years of therapy this is. You just literally explained why i go through through. I mean turn on engagement. I dare you to not smile. Do you just do a taylor. You ever watch rules of engagement oliver's though he's like the dumb guy in it but he's he's just fantastic splitting up. This is a perfect example too. Because like do you consider yourself famous or would you be like okay see. That's what i'm saying. Even people who are like. I say no. I'm not at all in a different area than knew for sure but like getting recognized by people. Sometimes it's fun. It's fun but if it happened all the time like a crazy amount. Like i don't think like i watched what my sister has to go through and it's not fun. You know what what i mean. He's just it's over. It's just bullshit. It's crazy to me and i grew up with that. I grew up with my mother. Everyone wanting a piece of her. And then kurt and it was all around us all the time and i developed like a distaste for it it. It really fucked me up you know. Does it fuck with you when you meet new people and like not knowing how much of you they like. And oh Oh so you are. Yes my first kiss okay. In fourth grade was a real name to cold and she wasn't really kissed but wait. I'm sorry can i hit the sound effect. This is new information alert right here. This is new. This is new ground new. I'm telling you i'm telling a story. That was the was the kickoff point to this insecurity because nicole lunch had frenzy pin me down and she kissed me and i was like oh my god and she liked me and all this right then i find out that she's only hammered with sort of who. My mother was whether that's true or not. I don't know this is what i was told. This is what i heard and it crushed me and from that moment on i have always been hyper aware of why people want to be around me. Why people like me you know and especially growing up as a teenager you know. Trying to sort of navigate that was you know it was part as part of my experience. But it's definitely in there. That is that is that is something that has been sharpened in me. But at the same time i wouldn't take it away because i feel like it is developed my intuition you know i feel like i have a handle on people better. Yeah but you don't want to be a story for somebody right like you. Don't wanna be guess you i can down and king yes. You don't wanna be a oh. She's told that she's told that story. And she doesn't know what she said about her behind her back and really just popping pin in the whole girl likes me balloon right. What was her name again. Nicole cold remembered it and then on top of it you know years later i was twelve or thirteen years old. I was going to camp. And i was friends with all these girls at camp and it was. We had the best year and it was amazing. And then we're on the bus. And and i'm sitting next to this girl and i just out of the blue going. We're going home back to the airport.

It generates nearly four million in economic activity but a major tax increase on businesses. To pay for it will only cost the us jobs. There is a way to fund infrastructure in a sustained way without raising taxes on job creators and undermining the recovery. Let's build together paid for by business roundtable. How much do you stay this. This could be a big a deeper question. But how much do you stake your sort of sense of wellbeing in how you are as a comedian and how well you do as an artist as a performer as an actor comedian. Whatever it is you are. You know how much of your self worth do stake in in in your performance. Oh i'd say ninety eight percent of my self titled that was. I don't know how you that's how i that really was brought to light for me. During the pandemic. I already kind of knew that myself worth was probably too tied to work. But i'm like whatever. I'll just work all the time it signed and then when that was taken away i like a lot of other people had to kind of sit with myself ago. Oh man is this. The only way. I feel good about myself is what i'm good at my job because if my job goes away and i just screwed emotionally mentally and and i don't feel worthy of love her attention or interest in iraq and I definitely had to wrestle with that. I definitely had to wrestle with that in the last year. Because i do think it's really unhealthy too especially in entertainment. You cannot high on your self worth to your accomplishments and your career. Because it's so fickle and you will always be coming up short because there's always something bigger better brighter that you could have gotten her validation. You know thing even what i. I'm not a comedian. But it's just it's just the validation. It's this bullshit thing that i'm striving for which is just it's not real. You know who who. Why do i need this validation to make me feel good about myself when i was my my twenty four th birthday. My stepdad kurt. Who's an actor he he kurt. Russell taylor tomlinson kurt russell kurt russell yes he in anything or no startup. Yeah he's under. Captain ron but he he He said he goes look. You're talented you just have to stop giving a fuck what people think. You have to stop caring what people think about you. And it's easy much easier said than done. You know what i mean like. He truly has that. And it's a beautiful thing to watch and my my brother has that as well. Who's an actor and i i envy it because i just care too fucking much and that can stop me in my tracks. Yes yes oh my god. I relate to that sound much. There are very few comedians. I know that our lake that as well but they do feel and it is so inspiring to watch. Somebody just do what they do. Focus on their fans and who likes them and go were there wanted and really just be be like no. I deserve to be here. And i'm the best at what i do and not get wrapped up in all the like. What is everyone doing. What is everyone think i should be doing. Everyone judging me dwell cook. I'm trying too hard. Might not trying hard enough. If i not done enough i know i just got this or that thing. But it wasn't as big a thing this other person got and it'll just make you miserable. I think honestly the thing that helps the most with getting you to the place of realizing that is success when you experience success he realizes it doesn't make you happy you're like that's a great point. Great point really know when. I'm constantly comparing myself to again. That's part of my issue is that i'm like oh. He did this or even she did that. Who is not even in my wheelhouse. But still i had to get over that sort of competitive spirit. Not healthy one. It brings me down. You know rate and the messed up thing about hollywood in the entertainment industry is we're not wrong. All these insecurities are not incorrect like casting directors and people gatekeepers all. These people are comparing us and they are going to have someone who's kind of in your age bracket or kind of looks like you or we have someone who does your thing. That's that is our business. That's what we've chosen to so it's hard to get yourself out of that comparison spiral and go like. Nobody's doing that because no everyone is doing that. But focusing on that is not going to help you in any way do you have to. Here's a weird question. But as i sit here and watch you and listen to you talk your twenty seven years old. You started at sixteen so somebody like me would go. Oh well. she's a young comic. But you've been at it for a long time so that's probably insulting to here. It's like well in here slugging for for a long time now and this is just your life but you have a tough time. Here's the weird question. Part relating other year. That don't do what you do. Because i i would think You know you're the oldest of all the kids in your family. You've you've had a tough go when you were eight years old. You've been through that you've been i feel like you're a very experienced twenty-seven-year-old and speaking of somebody who has girls in their twenties. I see some of their friends and i'm like i i don't really get it so i i would imagine you have a tough time finding friends your age. Yeah i think. I think most of my friends are at least at least a few years older than me My friends that are my age. I've known since high school and you know one of them just had their second baby one of them just finished law school and the other one just finished med- school so they're all very successful in ways. I do not understand and cannot comment on and quite frankly makes me feel insecure. When i see them. Or they're like your mother hoods grade. And here's what i've learned. And i'm like did you think about putting your baby on tiktok 'cause a lot of us with your with your baby videos and then like my friends are getting.

"Normal setting. I certainly hope so. I mean los angeles comes finally opened up last week. So you know on friday. I did the laugh. Factory the comedy store and the improv like you used to do one after the other and granted. They're not full because you can't be so it's a little emptier but everyone so happy to be out and it's just nice to be back inside that you know two years ago you would have walked into that room and gone. Oh my gosh what happened. Could we not sell tickets. And now you're like oh thank god. It's sold out at one. Hundred people spread out in their here. You know so. It's definitely i think given people a lot of perspective It's made me a lot more grateful for the road. It's it's made me more Were appreciative than yeah. I would hope a little more bulletproof on stage. Because that's you do so many bad rooms when you're starting out to become sort of like bulletproof and like you can handle anything whether tackler noise or or whatever whatever happened so growing up though you know did you. When did you discover comedy. I know you said you were going to these things with your dad but was at a younger age when you realize. Oh shit you know. I'm actually funny. Or when. I am funny it it. It allows me to sort of express myself in a way that i not able to in my normal life. I mean how did that. How did that evolve for you. And what did it do for. You is just a human being. I think it was funny to my friends. And i was funny to my friends parents. But i wasn't like a class clown or anything a I was very shy. And quiet. And i think a lot of people who found out i did stand up in high school Were surprised when they found out. I remember i had a. I worked at like a food service job in college and i remember asking for a night off because i had a show and he was like show and i was like. Oh i do stand up and he was like. I can't see that and just walked away. And i was glad you're not wrong. I'm very scared. And i had horrible stage fright when i started doing it but i really liked it or form. Yeah i was like a a theory kid like. I really like performing. I had no musical ability so that really helped me back. But i was in mock trial and creative writing and drama and all these things marching band. So it's it's always something i wanted to do and i think when i was like really i was like i wanna be an actor in like all over dramatic children do and then once i found stand up i was like oh. This is what i wanna do like to this day. I'm like acting fine. I guess if you can't do stand up. But i just love stand up so much and even insurance doing standup like oh yeah. I used to feel like physically ill for several days before i had to go do mechanic goes away right. I mean you have stage fright. It's it's the fear of the unknown in. It's the fear of maybe taking that first step onto the stage or saying hi. My name's taylor. But but once you get going it's like a an athlete you know getting hit for the first time on the field. It's like oh that's how it feels and then it kind of goes away you get into the flow of what you're doing right. Yeah exactly. I think once i started going on stage almost every night multiple times tonight. You just don't have time to be afraid anymore these even if something goes poorly. You're like i've another show thirty minutes. I have another spot in our. I will make up for it n even bombing yet. You know you have a couple of really bad ones and then at a certain point even when you bomb. You're this is just part of it. That is going to happen. Sometimes that sucks but you just have to stay with it and it's a funny story at a certain point what's worse low of bombing or the high of just owning crowd. Forget the socially distanced outdoor crowd worse. What's war what has a bigger impact on you what what lasts longer in your mind. No that's a good question. What stays with me longer. A great set or a bad set. I can answer for me. It's just bombing. Like when i go do a scene i can't remember my fucking lines and everyone's waiting on me and it's about they're trying to call lunch and now we're getting into meal penalties and now fucking losing my shit and now stays with me more than just crushing some sort of a scene right. See that's why. Like i mean how people feel about standard is like how i feel about acting like that looks terrifying. Like if i if i was in that situation you just described. That would stay with me for three years. I would be like. Oh i quit. I i want to be a teacher. Like i don't feel say And i know people feel that way about bombing with stand up to. I mean i think probably bombing will stay with you longer. It depends how bad it was. I mean a really rough bomb. That'll stay with you because it shakes it. Shakes your confidence where you're like. How could i not know how to do this. How i've done this for so long. And how did i not handle this now that you know how to handle everything. That's what stays with. Me is if i if i like lose it. A dozen happen very often. There's been a couple times in the last time i happen. We would like don't belt. Maybe a year and a half ago i was in spokane and there was a table that was just talking like right in the front row and i. It was thursday night. And i traveled that day. And i was tired. I was stressed about something. And i just wasn't funny about how mad i was about it and i'm like you know how to be funny. Know how to get people to shut up. You know how to talk to. You didn't do any of that. You just met and you made it weird and he added dig out of the whole so damn will stay with me for a while. That was interesting. That's interesting because i was gonna ask you like how much of a bomb is you. And how much of the bomb is just getting unlucky with the crowd. I mean it's gotta be more than the than the comedian. I would think is. Sometimes you just get fucked up crowd. That's not gonna give you any which is weird that they all seem to know what night to show up right facebook group. I would say you know. How did you all know to show up here tonight because every one of you sucks right now how did you did you send an email. Is it on some to you all on a text chain. How did you do it. 'cause you're killing me up here. I don't care if you're having any fun right now. You guys are fucking my night. That's that's where i would go. i mean should. He grabbed numbers. They're very organized. I'll give them that. They're very organized. But then those are and those are the nights you get you know instagram. Dm's for people who are like. We thought you were great. I don't know what was wrong with them. And you're like okay. I didn't know when that bad cop. Sometimes you go into a room and they just. They wanted something different. And you're like this is the type of comic i am. I'm i'm good at what i do and you do need to. You do need to deliver in most situations but every once in a while if you get a crowd who is not..

Thank you for having me anything so to start. I want everyone to meet you. Because you're awesome So you are a member of space fund. You also have this podcast mission eve. That is fantastic. Can you tell everyone a little bit about you sure. Yeah co founder and managing partner of space fund Where venture capital firm investing exclusively in the new space ecosystem so very kind of targeted fund And then i also have my podcast mission eve which I interview the most amazing women in the space industry. It's just been a thrill and just so much fun to do. And in the hopes of inspiring more women to join us here in the space industry So that's that's a project that's near and dear to my heart I'm also on. The board of several nonprofits needs to do a quick shout out the space frontier foundation. The center for space commerce finance mars initiative and the earth light foundation Spend an inordinate amount of my time helping those at nonprofits. So i think that's probably about it so we're gonna talk about a bunch of different angles on the finance side of stuff which i occasionally touch on but probably not as deeply as i should in many cases there's some fundraising that has happened. In the past year that has been particularly notable for the size specifically spacex relativity. Been getting gargantuan amounts of money there's some acquisitions that have happened recently. And then There's a whole trend of holding companies. That i find quite interesting as well as a trend that i find interesting and more shady. Which is this whole special purpose acquisition friend. Those are the things. I want to pick your brain about. Is there an order. would you like to start with fundraising and then get into what happens after. You've gotten a bunch of funding and actually accomplish things. What's the right order there. Yeah well I think i'd like to start with this kind of startling statistic that that i i like to I like to bring up a lot. Is that One and it's it's one of the reasons that spaceman was founded. Actually is you know. Currently launched comprises less than two percents of the global space economy yet has received seven percent of the venture capital. Today right sounds crazy but it. It makes such intuitive sense to like you know somebody watches the markets but exactly crazy. Yeah that's crazy. Yeah i like it when you hear that you're like oh yeah that seems right but holy crap. That's crazy just hear those numbers right and now the one question i would have is. Does that. include any space x funding as launch. Yes that includes spacex funding and includes the you know that big relativity rounded includes all of that. So i guess that's my that would be. My stipulation is like how. How do you separate out. What of that is going to starlink. zach satellites. Then does that skew it or is it not big enough to actually skew. Anything no matter how you classify either couple billion. Yeah so you know the regardless. It's it's a huge number even if he were to try and take starlink out of the kind of the space x portion of that. They're going to be forty percent of the venture right number exactly exactly and so you know when When my partner. Rick tomlinson and i were contemplating a founding space fund. You know this was one of the things that was really bothering us. We were kind of looking around the industry at all of our our friends and colleagues. Who are these brilliant entrepreneurs going and down sandhill road and couldn't get any funding and meanwhile while all these other. Vc's are just pouring good money. After bad into launch company after launch company because all ilan has launched company and basil's has launched company and jared. Leto is invested in in relativity space so i need a launch company. Right and base fund is currently tracking a hundred and sixty two active launch companies around the world.

Coronavirus infection rates continue to rise in the U.S.
"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds. That is what we are running out of in rural minnesota and all over the country. Here's the first column in that same paper today. Case rates skyrocket in the region again. That's west central minnesota. Here's the front page of the news star in monroe louisiana blunt headline hospitals overwhelmed. Here's the front page in grand junction colorado. Today the daily sentinel county says. Icu beds are full. Here's the front. Page in muncie indiana. Today the star. Press in muncie. Indiana hospitals cove in nineteen rates.

The herald leader kentucky sets staggeringly high new record for coronavirus cases. Go to new mexico the albuquerque journal today cova cases explode up in washington state bellingham herald. State virus rate's the worst since the beginning of pandemic all over the country right and as as overwhelming as this crisis is may now tonight. We've just learned that. The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune. Today i was actually a pretty good snapshot of what the heck we as americans are supposed to do with the twin disasters. We've got all at once and look at the front page at the minneapolis star tribune today a raging forest fire virus sweeps minnesota state to get ambulances from fema for surge importantly those are staffed ambulances so ambulance with their crews from fema going into minnesota to help them deal with patients and the need to move patients in hospitals.

"Program You twelve step program you go to your therapists whatever it is you don't go to the problem for the solution I didn't know. That you're right. I did not. You have sisters probably have a healthier relationship with women than I did I didn't have a healthy association with women for a real long time, and then a lot of my friends were guys and I thought for a while like, Oh, the best way to get advice about guys is from guys which I still believe in a lot of ways. But I also had inauthentic friendships. I had friends that wouldn't give me good advice. They would be like I think he just likes you too much rate like his phones probably broken like that type of Shit. Now, I have girlfriends that are like, yeah. It's not working. You know tell me the truth or not scared of me. So I think for me, I'm in a big reorganization moment in my life you talked about losing friends earlier we talked about this a lot on the podcast like I have to update our software every year and make sure the same way we updates our phones. or computers like is this still the best version of my friend circles still the best version of my you know professional circle like you just have to refresh every now and then and I think that I'm going through a little bit of. Sort of I'm molting. Interest trying to have more female friendships in my life especially with equals. That's the other thing. A lot of time I hear. It. I think the stronger relationships are with good girlfriends the better your romantic relationships are going to be because you're not going to try to get all your needs met from that person even though I think it's my instinct at least my programming to as soon as a man comes along your girlfriend's see at the wedding inches you're my bridesmaids seeing a year and a half the I don't have that. I think I lean on my girlfriends a lot when I'm in a relationship I see them less 'cause you always see people less than you're in a relationship. But it. Yeah I mean I'm going to be lean. It's going to be leaning on someone for my emotional needs. So let's divvy this up. Do feel like sometimes you do. Go engage with a partner more than you. Yes. Oh I think that's absolutely true. Going to the problem for the solution. That's something I think about a lot that you've said and I think about you sometimes I never would have known this at twenty six or so wildly ahead of me. So none of this should feel. disparaging. But like it took me so long. To realize that silence is the only language men understand and vice versa with women men with women to like you cannot dignify certain things with a response right and I think that because. You're so smart and you're emotionally very mature that we think that if we're just more clear and direct, the other person's childhood will change. There's a quote for you just doesn't work that way and I think we're at this this. Help moment with instagram and podcasts and stuff like Oh. My God, I know how to express my feelings like I know how to talk through things. I'm so emotionally mature. Me You say what you mean don't say it mean I'm just because you're. Being clear with the person directed mature doesn't mean the other person has the mental equipment to receive what you're saying right well, and just because somebody's aware of something doesn't mean it's going to change overnight and the same way that just because we're aware of our shit doesn't mean that we're going to handle everything perfectly like think about how much talk like well, this is what it is and it's our attachment style. Yeah you Blah and then we meet someone we really like that doesn't make bad. Have said I, love you tweet. Jason. Are self-awareness hasn't fixed us. Why would it fix someone else again are self awareness has not fixed. Why would fix someone else? We fix. The fact. Doesn't magically fix things I. Think it's taken me so long to just realize that like time takes time and knowing the solution for you doesn't fix everything and. You know it's so interesting because for the men listening I think. This is important. Too. Because this is going to make you like more I'm about to lose all my female subscribers, but it's taken me so long or having women. So long in general to like find our voice and be able to stand up for ourselves and be able to set boundaries and to be able to like. Be Strong women or whatever that means. But like now, I'm saying you found your voice great. Now stop using it stop talking so much just stop like half of what you just. Cut Everything you want to say in half and then cut it in half again just don't say it. You can't take back you can't take it back. Yeah. Once you've set it and the more you say the more shame you're gonNA. Feel later that it didn't work. Yeah and that is what erodes your self esteem and your self worth right is I just said. All this stuff and it didn't work now. I'm embarrassed now I failed. Yeah. You know what? I'm saying I wasn't enough like what I've learned in the last year in relationships is like someone else's actions don't have anything to do with me or they did not that they don't have anything to do with me, but they don't have anything to do with my worthiness. And I think I always thought like Oh if I were prettier or if I were better or if they liked me more, they wouldn't have treated me that way and that's not true at all. By, the way and maybe they would trade your better and that would have been even worse. If you were prettier and they treated you better because of that that would be even worse. Right but they wouldn't have I mean that's the thing like it's not that they were like be careful what you want you might get it right? It's not like people are sitting there going like I've just met I have so many like hot cool. Successful girlfriends who dudes just like..

Well, here's what you saw which was adorable that I think is really important. You saw my interview you at my inner child yes and. Because you're used to unhealthy people like all of your feelings are so valid because of what you've been surrounded by. What someone kicks up in you yes. So it's like if you know I M my attachment strategy which you guys know Google editor listening like you know I get anxious preoccupied if someone is not anxious preoccupied with me. So if someone is anxious preoccupied with me and needs validation needs my attention I get dismissive. Yeah. A more layman's way to put it is if someone likes too much I just I feel secure and then I kind of get bored right. I got you. So I don't need to chase you or wonder about you. I'm not saying any of this is good. This is just the way that I'm wired but if somebody if I project that someone is not available. It kicks up my. Dad Shit. which is like I have to worry approval. I. I don't like saying daddy issues people have to stop saying that. It's too vague. It's dismissive. It's Pejorative I. Don't like it. It's really ruining the word Daddy.

I mean babies ruined the ability to sexualize babies. It's like fucking. Now I'm pedophile. I just want the guy I'm fucking to be a baby. Now. I can't say that say, Daddy.

Just to remind yourself that your inner child is actually was freaking out not all self. When there is an absence of communication or what I perceive as an absence of communication of someone like kicks up that familiarity. Right? We like pattern recognition like, ooh, I know this pattern which is. I. Don't hear from someone constantly because they're not an addict. And they're not smothering me and they're not constantly available I go into inner child mode and. Sadness comes up I have. So I have such a fucking deep well of sadness that when someone triggers the feelings that I felt when I was a kid yeah, whether they want it has nothing to do with them. They didn't cause it not there. If I'm crying, it has nothing to do with you Dude like nothing. But like you were on the phone with me or facetime ing or something, and I was texting with this person and he like something about like not being available today that I thought they would be available and I either started bawling crying for like an hour it like twigs.

You keep planting trees to make sure the woods stay you stay in the woods I don't think I'm planning trees out of the woods and start planning trees so I don't think I'm planting trees I. Think I'm just looking at the soil real hard like if there's a true coming I'm GonNa fuck have the Schumer is going to drop all the time. All the time what if he dropped already I mean, a lot of shoes dropped and sometimes I was like look I was right and sometimes I didn't even see that coming. GotTa gotta be even more swivel because I think the main thing I have with you is like I have to give you the dignity of your own experience and let you learn on your own but there's other times where I'm like, oh I just my biggest regret about my twenties is that I didn't enjoy it because I was so busy worrying about things going wrong and I didn't realize that. Thing that had gone wrong already went wrong right and now things are actually going right. But I couldn't tell the difference when things started going right All I did was anticipate the Damocles Sword fallings. I couldn't enjoy it and I know I hate people say just enjoy just have fun like easier said than done like I have you know you have twenty six years of neural pathways that have been crystallized because something you know your mom died when you were young like, of course, the worst thing is always gonNA happen like that is such a major trauma. On the brain. But I just wish that I had earlier in my life. Not wasted. So much time expecting things to go wrong. That is definitely what I've been working on the most this year and I, think the pandemic honestly really helped move that because I was like Oh everything can go away yeah and it's happened and interesting liberating about everything going wrong fully known nothing's GonNa. Go wrong after my dad died a couple of years ago. There was something obviously it broke my heart. but I think it kind of broke. My heart is my friend Nikki from college. He met Nikki Yeah said she goes you know. If you're GONNA have your heartbroken make sure it breaks open. And when my dad died there was sort of like a well it's so beautiful. I know. Shannon to Nikki we're the best just make sure breaks open. Don't let it broke break inside your. After my dad was like, well, that's what's the worst come at me Bro. At Me Yeah thing I'm referencing me because I'm young and I were hats. It's really good that come at me, bro It's like an eater that's come at me bro or maybe it's a panda swing. Now. I'm just doing my act And there's there's I just wish you had more of a combat me mentality of like the shoes drop like what like? Down the slide oh, totally roller coasters they go dick and you're up up up up up like I feel like you're always going up up up up up like when you get to go down when you get to go we right I really do kind of feel like that very recently. Yeah now is. I, mean, this is your. I work at a water park. That's Going down. The. That's what it looks like I got a summer job at a water part. And I'm like just on my phone like all right go. Go you look that looks assured that eighty Sitcom that a racist costume designer would give to the waiter at a Mexican restaurant I mean. I like it. I think it's fun I liked it has every color and you could have a crazy nail color. I don't right now still look like it went together I'm super into this for you because I feel like you self deprive and we'll talk about that in a minute and you do you self deprive a little bit and you don't celebrate enough with your.

Because otherwise you're going to be distracted and it's GonNa Elephant Living Room and everyone else is going to see the thing that you don't see. So you might as well just call it out. So. I, just did that I just adjusted my camera angle while Taylor was talking about how good of a Strategic Businesswoman I am Yeah. An example specifically when we were writing the show, we like first off, we finished we sold TV show that's a big deal. It is a big deal. Thank you. For saying that because I'm still like it didn't happen. How do you feel about it? I know you seem to have an odd relationship with success Yeah. I don't trust it. Let's like literally happening and then when it happens, you won't trusted either because then it's going to get taken away possibly. Yes. Yeah. because. You 'cause lots of I started your special had not come out yet. The first time right and left them. You're on this podcast. Yes. What I'm interested in last time you guys had we had Taylor on this podcast hurt special come out now it's come out. It was a big big deal. Did it fix everything? Are you fixed you heal you had wild success you've got to work with me. You would a special on that was huge. Thanks to the pandemic and a talent and your talent. The biggest thing that came out of that special. Was You wanting to work with me? I worked with you. We wrote show together we sold it. Are. You fixed the invisible wounds healed no six doesn't fit. You know what I will say I'm not fixed, but I am like I think much closer to being fixed than I was before we started working together because this show that we were working on the character, my character in the show is a serial monogamy. Who Realize? Alone for a while. And you know how hard it is to go to work every day with Whitney Cummings who will not. Let you even have a minute. To Lake do the wrong thing emotionally and just goes like, Oh, well, you should just be doing this. and not like be super self reflective like I think I came out of writing this show learning a lot about myself because there were so many days that I like pitched ideas for storylines jokes and you're like. This feels like something that's is that a joke or is that just something through? Yeah. Nonfiction. What are we doing? So yeah, I think house big thing but oh, specifically when we were writing the show. We finished a draft of it and you're like I don't know what's wrong with it. I need to sleep on it, and then the next day we came back and said, we need to rewrite the whole thing with these changes like but you knew you trust your gut enough to go I know something's off here whereas I don't think I have that. Trust in myself yet. Interesting. I mean. In my personal life or my career I think I'm getting better at it and you're helping me get better at trusting my gut and listening to myself trust my gut not yours I mean again sometimes, you say things on my. Not, always. cracked. Today you need some probiotic. Saying. None of people challenge you like I love it when Taylor. Taylor it's been funny to watch you be sort of conditioned. To think. I'm right. Just in terms of like just knowing of me and that I'm successful and watching me from afar and then she'll agree with me instinctively and then I'll watch like you know when your computer freezes and there's that Rainbow Spinney wheel. Spinning wheel and you know that's not true. I know I'm supposed to believe you. Yeah. Because you're older than me but. People disagreeing with you I actually I. Actually do if I respect them. Okay. I, guess you don't respect me. I have gotten so many. DM's people both strangers and people. I know when you film me like in the bathroom or something go like Oh my God I have so much anxiety watching these stories filming you. Because, they're like. Just like crossing a boundary here and I'm just like look it's fine. We're good people like checked on me. They're also crossing a boundary by deming you and being worried about you an adult I get it but they're they're having times where I'm like, you cannot post this and you. Are I like fine I guess I'll get more followers. Actually, I think it was anti Letterman who was like. So it I don't i. don't I want Taylor to be famous and rich and hugely successful. You said this or any I'm saying, Oh, I just said that okay. That just came out. You started with. Anne. Thanks yeah, and we were doing a photo shoot a by house. I believe that Taylor has some. Odd Body Dis- morpheus body shame stuff been there done it. I'll give you my old journals if you WanNa know what. That would be. INSERTED A. called. Whitney's journal. I would fucking load. All, like tear stain, even make it out just look like watercolor paintings. It just goes, in the, Corner Whitney matters. I wanted to be with them for a long time. and. We're going. You were going with You were doing a photo shoot at your house, and I, believe that Taylor's body should be public domain. I. Some shame around your show and I do too. When I first started in being comedian I was very ashamed of being feminine I was very ashamed of being a woman I was meant to. Be think that it was like manipulative or my fault if guys thought. I was hot or I was a siren or whatever. Like were made to feel guilty for being attractive were made to feel guilty if we're a distraction to men, it's our fault. If we're sexy I'm done with that Shit and anyway. And just business one of photo of you in the pool in this really cute mckinney just. Let's get the backs. And so I've. Taylor on a very precarious table meant for Lacroix's. Three maximum. Could maybe hold us. As. Lip. Balm. At on a good day. He did not know this was hollow. This was a hollow West Elm side table had many a crack Yup saw the cracks I put him I put it in the pool and I was telling you to stand on this and I I knew it had like A good five to eight minutes left of life. You knew that I felt like I felt like we were going to get the picture and then it was going to break. Are you serious. I was like I know this will probably break but like water the chances, it's GonNa break while we're filming then because God loves you oh my God it broke while we were filming Taylor fell into, it re tweeted or posted by influencers in the wild. Million views in the first day didn't look at it at all because I was like a comment that hurts my feelings I'll know. Letterman was like that was the most Kris Jenner should I've ever seen? That was like Brooklyn your sex tape, what you just did with Taylor..

Have you been the type of person that during this time has wanted to watch things like outbreak in contagion? No okay all right now really left me alone zero zero This is where French events I know. This sounds pretty confident. You're GONNA be like maybe if I haven't said this the entire podcast and I think someone needs to write me a check. When I was your age I finally said it. I think I would've but I have gotten it so hammered therapist doesn't let me she basically like you cannot watch that shit the way your brain works. You just can't see I haven't seen Chernobyl. I can't watch shit like that if folks me up for weeks. Chernobyl did fucked me up because it made me think about death. I always think about death though. Really low all the time every day. Yes every day. I'm thinking about death if things are going well how do you think you're going to die? I think I'm going to get sick. Do you think we all know how we're going to die. No Gun to our heads. No I don't think any of US know. Yeah Gun to your head. How are you going to die? I'm here I'm thinking on that? Here's my thing anxiety wise. I try to worry about everything so that it won't happen because I feel like what you worry about sense of control. Yeah almost never happens at least not exactly that way kind of person. And here's what I'll say. I think there's a war on worrying. There's a war on anxiety and I'm always a person saying ing. Zaidi does serve a purpose. It protects the most anxious people and the tribes are the ones that really out of line. Is that a line. And they got out of there and they survived right here. Annoying served a very important purpose in our reptilian brains And in tribal time. Now it's just some of us have a little too much of it just directed at the wrong things right you know. We were worried about Getting wrinkles when we should have worried about a virus yes. We're just worrying about the wrong thing. This is what I'm saying though I when I worry about everything. Whatever I don't worry about is what ends up happening. I had worried about literally everything else I was like. The Big One's GonNa hit You know a family member of mine is going to die I'm going to die. I'M GONNA get in a car accident like I thought of. All these things that could happen around My good news. Which was that? I had a special coming out and none of those things happened. The one thing that haven't was a pandemic that threatens Nali the business as a whole but our entire world And I think I didn't think of it because I didn't watch contagious because to me I was like that will make me spire. I'M NOT GONNA watch it. That'll make me spiral that's going to happen and now I'm like I should watch it so that I can prepare something I'd like something. Rake prepare. Yes I don't know. And they signed the vaccine at the end of contagious. I looked it up. Took them an hour? Forty minutes our forties right. I'm just comfort. I literally got to the point where I was like. Can the person that wrote contagion get involved in this? You can the Hollywood screenwriters that have been spending years researching pandemics. They probably know more than a lot of people who ministration now. They actually know a lot. Can The guy from house? Yeah that was like the consultant for House. Get in here yes do. Don't you feel like Tom? Hanks is going to be fine right. Yes yes so. Don't you like that makes people go? It's okay Tom. Hanks had it and he's fine and in the same way watching a movie about the same thing where at the end everything works out. You're like okay. Everything's GonNa be fine. I feel like the moment I thought we jog is really on one He's on steroids. Things are really hitting the fan. I think that when I heard Tom Hanks got it. That's when I was like we're all GonNa die really got to donate. Yeah oh I know. This doesn't care about it. Went for our leader. They went for the guy for America's sweetheart. Yeah and this is something. That does not discriminate. I think Tom Hanks had died. The entire world would be unlocked down. We'd be we would've just I mean I would have jumped off a balcony. It would have been voluntary just mess. Everybody would take would be taking this so seriously but a lot of people were probably like Tom. Hanks is now they're like why would I canceled? Spring break yeah. It's interesting to see who is a couple other celebrities have it? I mean it's yeah that's the thing with like football. No one's GonNa care about until like Tom Brady his neck.

"tomlinson" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"And we're back with Taylor. Tomlinson so I think anyone who hears this will be struck by just sort of how many freakin jokes. There are in it like just like their punch lines in the premises. There's the setups. Do you have rules of thumb of how often you want a laugh? How do you think about pacing? Oh as often as I can get one. I need lots of validation. Every ten to fifteen seconds Yeah usually when I write a new bit. If there are gaps. Are the setups too long? Or the there's two longest stretch without a laugh. I started to get nervous and itchy. So I'm yeah I'm always trying to have as many punch lines as possible on the same way like when you're doing a late night set you just WanNa Cram in as much as possible. I feel the same way about an hour So I have some thoughts about this and this might be a pretty sharp transition For the listener and thus So I wanNA talk a little bit about how you lost your mother when you were eight. Oh Yeah Because I lost my mother around the same time last tornado and I would hear you talking interviews. I was like a. We had very similar experiences. Really Yeah when I see a comedian who is sort of a machine gun like you are. I think I learned this talking to Whitney Cummings. There feels like there's like These complementary impulses of a desire for control of the audience that comes with like I'm GonNa make them laugh and I I know where it's going to be. And as you sort of hint in the special difficulty trusting people have difficulty trusting the audience. That if I'm not making them laugh that they're gonNA still like me. Does that resonate with you so much? Oh My Gosh. Ouch to hurt your feelings. I know I mean like ouch. I feel so seen that's just raw out here Yeah no I completely agree with that. I think I think the the new material that I have now I have. I have fifteen minutes in the new are about losing my mom and it's I had some of it before I film this special and I thought about putting it in. I think some of it was in the submission video that we we gave flex and I ended up cutting it because I thought you know what I want this special to be sort of representative of like the first five years my twenties like that's what it feels like a snapshot of that what it feels like. I'm qualified to talk about also I feel like there's more to losing my mom then I have currently and I don't WanNa do like five minutes in this hour about being or twenties and dating is crazy. It felt a little like out of nowhere whereas this new our thematically is like these experiences in therapy. This is my experience calling off my wedding. This is you know Y. I'm like this because I lost my mom and a lot of ways. This is kind of my relationship. Now it's it's It's definitely dealing with all jokes about how I don't trust people and how it's hard for me to trust people at the beginnings of relationships and it all feeds into each other. It really does because you you start off by just having trust issues and then you go to therapy and they go. These are all the reasons you have those and you go. Oh my gosh. So I'm fixed now and the new now you just no way you suck and you're like what do I do and they're like you come back next week with your credit card. I really wanted to talk about and I wanted to have maturity to talk about it and I didn't feel like I had it yet and it's funny. Once we got this special in the can I started working out those jokes on the road and even now like they don't. There are audiences that are like they get bombed or sad and I've just you just building those jokes where you call people out for it and you know you. GotTa Understand Ego. The people who are tensing up probably didn't lose their parents like the people who tensing up about that stuff in the same way. Like when you tell somebody that you lost a parent. I'm sure you've experiences. If they haven't lost anybody they get really sad and uncomfortable but if someone else has in the in the same way you have a shorthand with like other comedians. You assure hand with people with dead parents who like awesome as kids. We were like Oh yeah I see you know what that was like I get it you know. Do you feel like as you've gotten better at a comedian. You've gotten better at just trusting the audience to listen to you and trust in the audience to deserve that part of yourself. I think I trust myself more. I think when I was younger I was nervous because I felt a need to make everyone comfortable in the audience. Because I knew I was young. I knew I looked young and I knew that when I got on stage. Everybody was kind of like okay. Hope this doesn't go Bradley and I could feel it and so pretty early on. I was like okay I need to know how to move confidently how to speak confidently how to move the MIC stand confidently like it felt like setting myself up was very important and I think also hopefully enough people watch this special that I. There's more of a familiarity with me when people come out to see me because now people come out to see me but they're still a good chunk of the audience. Who doesn't know I am just wants to see comedy that weekend or just watched like one tonight show set of mine and I think once people get to know you you have a little bit more freedom to explore more personal things or take more chances because people are already fans and and already understand. No Your Voice. So they don't have to get used to it for the first ten minutes So that's sort of what I was waiting for and I'm glad I waited for it because it definitely felt like the right decision and there's just been I feel like I find new things about it all the time because I'm sure I'm sure you feel the same way as when you lose a parent that young you don't process it at that age fully because you don't know what's happening. Yeah I always think about people like Oh. Comedians are the funniest people it's like. Well they're they have a proclivity to be funny but also they needed to keep on doing it. It's so weird to be a comedian and so hard to get through the first however many years that there has to be a reason why laughter matter to them. So much yeah. Is that the studio absolutely? That's what I tell people when they say. What advice do you have for me? Who STARTING OUT COMEDY? I go it truly and I know other people have said like if you can do something else. Go do that other thing like if you don't need to do this. I've been friends with people where basically said like. I don't think you need to do it. I'm like the roads not fun. You're not gonna like the road You're GONNA like doing stand up but you have to need it so badly that you're willing to put up with everything else you have to put up with until you become successful and it is going to take as long as it's going to take. I mean I've gotten very lucky. I know people who had to wait a lot longer for especially that like. It's you just never know how it's going to go down. You just have to keep working really hard every day. And if you don't love the process in an obsessive unhealthy way and you don't need the validation from strangers You know you'll probably tap out Have you ever seen or heard Hamilton? The musical hand yes both great so this is a lot easier for my. Gosh Oh good. Is it the overwhelm them with honesty quote? It's the right like you're running out of time. Love it. Love it from feel that way. Yes absolutely I. My mom passed away when she was thirty. Four it held was about thirty forty. Wow Okay so do you Growing.
"tomlinson" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"I remember when I wrote early on where I think the the initial version of the joke I had tried to say like it was more on like your virginity is a gift and it was like. I tried to give him my gift and he was just like. Is there a gift receipt? Like it was a different thing and. I thought I think I might have done shows in Vegas. I just saw those guys and I'm like Oh nobody wants to take that from them and they're trying so hard and that's the perfect visual So then the joke about but you know what they say. Women always go for men like their father. So I keep going guys who don't want to sleep with me and then you explain to people that that that joke is nice in that joke about how your dad's good. It's an interesting moment. Is the audience. It truly does not nowhere. Yeah how did that feel to be in that? Well here's the thing it's I'd have done it so many times it's every night there's never a night where it just murders in. Evren cares me out on their shoulders. Like there's always some weirdness and it's because all people here is incest that's all they hear and you're like that's the opposite of what I'm saying and I thought the joke was so good and funny and I'm like this is an airtight joke. I think the first version of the joke I wrote was like I. They say women go for men like their fathers which is why a guy who would think who feel weird about kissing me like something like that and that is almost a hundred to true. Yeah I I think this joke is good and I think people laugh it and think it's funny but they do tense up especially if you're there with your parents and most people go to comedy shows their parents. I can see why you might be uncomfortable with it but I I did you start calling it out because it's sort of a save line but it's also like you think about it for a second. Don't just like knee jerk reaction and go you want to sleep with your debt and no. That's the opposite of the joke. That joke is my dad is my dad. So of course he wouldn't want to and it's funny that I am trying to date men who also just aren't interested in me in that way. I imagine if you took along like a very long pause they would think about it. You'd be like Oh but because you immediately know they are going to not get it. You're you're essentially calling on their brain figuring it out. Yeah well and I'm not that patient and I my style is just very fast so I'm not gonNA wait that long. I'm not one of these people who has the patience to be like. Let's just sit in this for a minute until you guys come round like I'm like no if you don't if you're not at my pace I will seem so you you finally get to sort of. What is the premise of the joke? About how you lost your virginity late Which you set it up. Which in a more classic style you'd be like I lost my virginity late in the ago. Like how late did you lose it? But can you walk me? Through how it evolves to financial independence and sort of what art example of financial Which ends with the painting that I purchased with a coupon true. Although I don't know that I had a cube coupon I think I wrote this pretty quickly after I lost my virginity like maybe like the next day started running it where I'm like. It's so funny that it took me this long and I did try before this and it didn't pan out. Yeah I remember thinking. It's so funny that most of my friends lost it when they were not when they were still on their parents. You know cell phone plan and everything or a lot of them lost it you know when we were in high school or when they were in college like dorm room or something like their parents were heavily financially involved in their lives and they are having sex. And I'm like that's insane. I mean I definitely waited until I was out of my parent's house to try to lose my virginity because that felt respectful. And I'm like I was like I was living in La. Like I was doing pretty well. And I couldn't lose my virginity but I mean I only live with one roommate and I have a bathroom in my room so I mean some things going right so the last section is is really interesting. It's it's the same sort of the most personal and there. There's a part that sort of lake offering the audience a bit of a Tako message and then it builds obviously this big Applause break punchline. Can you walk me through the the evolution of that last part so the closer that you referred to earlier on the comedy lineup that I had used a about the the guys were not wanting to wear condoms That had been about a guy I dated before and was like one of my favorite jokes to do and once I did it on Netflix. I was like well. I can't do this anymore. And after that I was like. Oh Man I need a new closer and this is we got to think of something and I was in a new relationship. And we've been seeing each other for like a few weeks and I remember. It was like getting to that point. I was like at his apartment or something. Like I'm not really there yet and I remember it was such a non issue and he was just like okay fine and we watched a movie or something and he was totally cool about it and I remember going. Oh my gosh that I think I'm good now like that. Maybe that's what I need. It allows and I started thinking about all my relationships going. Have I always done that? And is that is that a safety thing is that a you know growing up abstinent kind of thing where I need somebody to say. It's okay we don't have to have sex so I know they respect me. Because that's the whole pitch. Is that if someone sex with you. Before marriage they don't respect you and Yada Yada Yada Did you write this joke? Like right afterwards. Yeah next next week. You're like what just happened. Let me write a joke. That explains it to myself. Yeah Do you remember coming up with Charlie and the chocolate factory ending. I mean I just love that movie growing up so I think I think it came to fairly easily. I might have sat down and tried to think of examples. Sometimes I will do that where I go. I know there's something here and I know there's something to compare it to And I remember when I started doing the joke. There wasn't that whole like there wasn't like this twirling the cane act out and A very funny comic map bussard like gave me a tag. He said you say like welcome to my chocolate factory. And then I changed to come inside my Choco factor. In the next time he saw it he was like. Oh my gosh that's so much dirtier than what I pitched you and I was like. Hey it works.
