Fresh update on "wes" discussed on Couples Therapy
"These with her good friends because there's already a certain level of intimacy here. Yes, a comfort. Too much. Too much. I'm afraid I'm gonna say something, just thinking we're talking. Wow, here's the thing. If there's, I'll say this, if there's things you know, I'll talk about, just say I don't want to talk about that. Because this is a thing. We already know a lot about your relationship history. And I'm like, well, what don't you want to talk about? Or what is off limits? Well, it's just so funny because I feel like, you know, we only knew you like a little in New York, but really it's like an LA we've truly come together and in particular in the pandemic, you know, because you came to own property with an outdoor space. And that really just changed the game. Because it turns out all four of us were equally afraid of the cocoa. Yes. I've been very afraid of it. I think pandemic LA is my favorite version of LA. Yes. I see why LA can I see some beautiful aspects of LA that I think I ignored in the past. It's taken me a long time to get out here. And I just, I love New Yorkers. So the fact that I think we kind of came out around the same time. So yeah, yeah. I just think that in general, like our hearts, all of us, including Josh, we all have the same kind of Jewish anxious energy within us. And I think that is the bond that lies. The tie that bonds. The bond. And do you meet me feel so sane during the pandemic with your neuroses? Andy, you're so mentally ill. That you made me feel normal by comparison. I know, I felt. Yeah. Cool. You know, you mentioned Josh Andy Josh for the listener is Jenna's now husband. I think partner. You've already told so much. I haven't told I haven't told anyone because we are basically like really excited about just kind of keeping our lives private. I think, you know, we're both somewhat public, but not by LA standards, but it is nice to kind of keep things private, but yeah, I'm happy I'm fine to know. We went to smorgasbord this weekend. Our friend, this guy Zach is really cool. He books the vendor. Okay, this is not about Zach to me, okay? Yes establishment. Yeah. Do you like how I'm just changing the topic? I'm like, so there's so let me walk you through the vendors of smorgasbord. That will take up the whole hour. We can not swerve. What are you comfortable talking about? We're like, what are you? Actually, one of the things that we constantly, I don't know if we ever talk to you about this, but we're constantly trying to figure out what are the boundaries between the public personas because like the public person is not like a skin we put on. It's not like we're like, we get into public and we're like wacky characters. We are more like a valve or a real, right? And how much are you opening up that valve for the purposes of entertainment connection and then where does entertainment veer into possible betrayal of your partner? Oh yeah, no, Josh is what, I mean, one of the cool, I mean, there's so many cool things about him, but one I think is just how, as a performer, he totally understands. And he, he's never once said, don't say that on stage. It's less about him. I think it's more just like, I guess I do have this hang up, which I do talk about it a little bit. I think, and maybe it's our generation of female comics because it's like different now, but I do remember coming up like all of the opportunities available to female comics if we just talked about sex. And the expectation of us to kiss and tell or talk about sex onstage. And I joke about how I did at first and then it got to a point where I just was like, I don't want to do this, even if it's profitable. And that's why I know but he knows me. I don't know. So and so is making millions from talking about sex. Isn't that what your mom said recently? Oh my God. Forget the name of the person, but I can name the person. She's talking about sex. And I was like, God, we wish. You know, I get Jenna, Dr. Ruth. Doctor. And I really wanted to tell replay to your mom and be like, I could never have sex negative. But then I didn't want to have to explain to your mother what sex negative was. She gets it. She's just negative negative. She's like, you're speaking my language. Yes. Yeah. And then also, I do think for performers now. There's such an expectation to be for people to see you. And I think that really came into the forefront with podcasting. It's like people buy tickets for personalities, people they are friends with. It's not even about the art as much as it is about the person. So then the backlash of how do you separate the art from the artist has really come because now it's like we're buying into people's identities. That's how we're consuming music and art and film not film as much, but I would say I think comedy and maybe music a little bit more. Yeah. I don't know. I go see Wes Anderson's films for nothing. Nothingness of the person behind the shell of a human behind the films, the expression lose. Cold, human body. It's really like the gaffer. You know, it's like, I'm like a gaffer's. It's just like that's who I gather. I'm just funny 'cause it's like, you know, I realized, I don't know the screenwriters to some of my favorite movies and I felt really bad about that when that happens, but I was just thinking like, wouldn't it be fun if you just went to see the movie by the gaffer like whoever it's like, you got it right away. I didn't. I mean, Jenna, did you were you kind of like a private person before you became a comedian? Yeah. I don't know if it's private, but I think it's more just a reaction to how I think we're inculturated in comedy, like how harshly we're judged or like, I remember when I was first doing comedy, just like the rumors about other women who were successful, I would just hear and I would like diminish their success. So I just got paranoid. I remember being at the comedy cellar and I was talking to a guy comic, and he left. And I was like, we're just Friends, but I'm like, can you not, can you not walk out with me? 'cause I don't want people to think that we're having sex or something. And we weren't having sex. And he laughed about it, but I'm like, when you're a young comic, and people don't know who you are, they just think you're not. I don't know..
"wes" Discussed on The Big Picture
"Packs a punch, especially around the Richie character, which is probably the most tragic figure in the kind of Wes Anderson galaxy. What do you like about it Amanda? I mean, it's just kind of the whole world of Wes Anderson like springs forth fully formed. It is amazing that it goes rush more tenon bounds. And even though I just said everything I said about you can see all the tricks and the ideas and the style in Rushmore that tannin bounds is what three years later. And so fully complete from the house itself, you know? And it's like a real house that he found and redesigned to talk about like a literal manifestation of his project. And the performances and the music and the colors, which I feel like PTA being like, the lights, but you know. But when you say what's Anderson, I think of those like, you know, the yellows and the reds and the warmth and I can see everything so composed and it really is from tenon bounds. And that also has a lot to do with how old I was when I saw it was the first one. I learned a lot about the rest of the world through this movie, which is probably what a noise every single person who can't stand Wes Anderson and, you know, there are a fair number of detractors and people who do use words like tweet and quirky and just a collection of references, but you know, sometimes you catch things at the right moment and it being so fully formed and me being so fully unformed, I was just like, oh my God. This is it. I think this movie has something that none of the other Wes Anderson movies has. And that's Gene Hackman. It's true. As a royal tenant, go back and watch denims. Holy moly. I mean, you know, famously these two didn't really get along that well west and Jean and west is a very exacting director. And by this point, Gene Hackman was a very seasoned actor. But he's like, I don't know if you know this, but I was in crimson tide. But he wasn't fit. I mean, he was his energy is unbelievable and powers the movie and you know, obviously like Luke Wilson's character is the sort of pain, the painful heart of the movie, but hackman is the engine, you know? Maybe Margot is the style and chaz is the anguish. But the neurosis, yeah. But holy cow, hackman is just on a thousand the whole time that scene between him and chaz in the closet full of all the board games when they're screaming at each other is just amazing. It's just electricity. When hackman just like jumps up to start screaming right back, it's so good. It's so funny. I just, you know, obviously we love hacking on the show. It's also got maybe the best Aaron Wilson of the entire collection. You like them? This whole time, yeah..
April, 1779: Spain Enters the War
"April seventeen seventy nine. France and spain signed the treaty of iran. Wes which effectively drew spain into the war. With britain for the past couple of centuries spain had been francis traditional ally and britain's traditional enemy while spain did not share francis enthusiasm for american liberty. It did harbor grudges against britain and welcomed an opportunity to settle some of them by entering the war in the late seventeen. Hundreds spain was near the height of its worldwide empire. Spain of course had been their first european power to colonize the americas following christopher columbus's revelation that an entire western hemisphere existed and was available to be conquered after columbus returned from his first voyage. Spain claimed sovereignty over the entire western hemisphere. It did so. Even though columbus only had limited information about a few islands in the caribbean about a year after columbus's return spain and portugal sign the treaty of tour to see us which essentially recognize spain's claims to all lands west of vertical line drawn through the atlantic ocean the treaty was designed to recognize portugal's claims to some islands in the atlantic while seating to spain all the unknown lands further west in fact unknown to both parties at the time. The line seated. What is today the eastern part of brazil to the portuguese which is why brazil became a portuguese colony. In truth though when the vast size of north and south america came to be understood there was no way. Spain would be able to occupy or defend its vast claims to the hemisphere britain france. The netherlands and other european powers were not parties to the treaty and did not recognize. Spanish claims to the entire western hemisphere but spain was the first to establish a colonial empire for more than a century. Spain conquered most of south and central america as well as many caribbean islands. It was not until the early seventeenth century that other european powers seriously began to consider american colonies of their own

Wes Crill of Dimensional Fund Advisors Shares His Take on Inflation
"Are you thinking about inflation and is it affecting the way you're thinking about portfolios you know. Break it down to us about you. Know your your sort of thirty thousand view of inflation in and what to do about it. Yeah absolutely i mean depending on you talked to lots of differing viewpoints in terms of their expectations for inflation. So it's helpful for us to just look at. What is the market in aggregate telling us about inflation expectations and you know we can see that from some indicators for example you can use break even inflation or the difference in yields between nominal and inflation protected treasuries at the same maturity. You can use the you know the the forward inflation expectations something like the five year five years so if i look at the five year break even inflation rate right now or at least as of a few weeks ago it was hovering around right around two point four percent to five year five year ford inflation which is telling you something about inflation expectations for the five period after the next five years ago basically covering ten full years here. That number was around two point one percent. Both of those numbers are pretty well in line with historical trends so looking at those indicators. It doesn't seem that the market inaccurate is expecting particularly high inflation and expected inflation is incorporating into security prices whether you're buying stocks or bonds or anything that's in nominal terms. You're getting compensation for expected inflation now. Some investors might be particularly sensitive to inflation and that means they might be concerned with unexpected inflation so for example if consumer prices rise more than the broad market is expecting then they might want to seek additional protection for that and there are options and sort of like the the cova vaccines. We have different ways to reach the same level of inauguration. you can us treasury. Inflation protected securities Which will hedge on expected inflation. There's a consideration there which is the the yields on those very very low though the real interest rates for us treasuries are negative across the board across all maturities Then there's also the possibility of having a fixed income solution which combines inflation swap overlays. So you're getting you're going to get paid real inflator actual inflation and then it's overlaid on corporate bond strategies. We can expand your opportunity said to different levels of credit in different currencies as well so there are options for investors who do have concerns about unexpected inflation. But i think getting to this notion that expected inflation which whatever the market believes is gonna come to pass is being compensated and current security prices and let's face it the market when they're producing prices like this. They were very difficult to out. Guess we all have our opinions on what's going to happen in the future. But looking at the data around active fund managers outgassing market. Prices is very difficult

It's almost a decade since it came out and that's pretty good explanation of sort of the underlying process which is like the screen basically and then under a few things on top of that. I think the most interesting thing in the market at the moment is kathy would and ach. Etf's you might remember. In the early dot com days those funchal janus and the head break performances go great flows like a of flaws as a result and they were focused on smaller quid. Take names said janus had these gripe flows into these very illiquid stocks and they degrade performance as a result and it was probably van driving up. The performance of those stocks has been a similar argument made about ach that they tend to focus on smaller. Non-profitable take stokes and Sorta gigantically big of the last few years. It's now sort of a third or fourth biggest. Ats show out there that flows now that go into these small illiquid tech stocks of they control prices of these textbooks. Had this little wobble of the last few days colson redemptions for them which may cause them to do some selling as well they also have been exposure tasteless I just think that that's the driver of the market at the moment is potentially getting some redemptions having to sell out of some of those stocks which will push an the names and a very sort of beholden to what tesla Much big stuff. But it's still quite volatile. Hasn't made a great deal of money and so there's some risks that creates Cascade selling an odd gets coordinated.

Disney Plus Launches Star, A Streaming Outlet With More Grown-Up Fare
"Knew that star was launching february twenty third which recording this yesterday. I am in canada. So i have access to it along with australia. New zealand parts of europe in singapore. So a few countries have this new section on their disney plus app. And it's a big deal. It's a big deal for me. Because we get all the wes anderson movies. It's a big deal for some other people because they get like twenty four and richard devine from window. Central is tweeting about how much she loves. Twenty four and jack bowers back baby and all that so. I just wanted to talk about where we are in terms of streaming. I know disney or marvel disney made a big bunch of big announcement this morning On when the next set of mcu in star wars shows will be released on disney plus. And then there's all the other services right. There's hbo max there's peacock there's discovery plus there's Paramount plus. I guess if you want to call that new and all this leads to confusion for people who just want to find the show to watch. So let's start with disney. They now have ninety five million subscribers. They are doing really really well. In terms of expansion into new countries. This new star lodge is a big deal so give us the t. l. Dr if you will of why star launched now and why. It's a big deal for people outside the us lawyers. It's always the lawyers. Yeah i say why did it launch now because this is when they could finally agree on. Okay here's where the contracts in so we can pick things up. Yeah the the. The really oversimplified version is this in the united states. We have hulu and hulu has basically everything. That's not under the five pillars of disney plus in those disney star. Wars marvel pixar in national geographic. Anything outside of that. you what. You're forgetting well. I was gonna say you're forgetting the pillar of twentieth century fox and twentieth century fox which is on hulu so so virtually anything outside of those five pillars in the. Us will find on hulu yes. They're exceptions the problem is hulu is not anywhere in the rest of the world. It's a decidedly american phenomenon and so disney needed a way to get all this content to everybody else in pay by the way they get to charge a little more for it too and that became star the way they first announced it they do it. What other earnings calls last year It was a little like just weird. I didn't even fully understand it at the time and it took a little while to sink in and then the developer not developer days there investor days into simmer november december whenever that was explained. It a little better really. It's just that simple if it's if it's content you can probably find on hulu here in the us it's going to be on star everywhere else. So given that disney twentieth century fox. They bought a. They bought that from fox which was previously a shareholder in hulu disney is now the majority shareholder of hulu. Why can't they just bring hulu to the rest of the world. What is that. I mean i don't know the brand well who owns. Who is the issue there although disney now entirely owns who if i correct right they finish tying their last pieces of hulu like two years ago for for all intents and purposes and there might be somebody with a little sliver but it it's a disney joint partially owned by comcast but they're buying it slowly over the next few years right. Yeah that was an agreement that was made a couple of years ago but But that's why comcast is okay. All of our stuff is leaving hulu at this date because we will no longer have a share in it and it's all going to peacock But yeah the reason that who didn't exist in all these other countries was media streaming lauzon like entertainment and streaming laws vary by country by country. It takes a lot of money to get the rights to a decent amount of shows in places other than the us so it was a matter of hulu. Didn't really have the time or the or the money to spend on investing in trying to build up a catalog and other countries the only other country that hulu is in outside of the united states is japan. And i'm not sure how much longer is going to be there since they're probably going to roll it into star but it's disney had the clout to roll around the disney also already had rights to a lot of these things or the released they in contracts and have the rights back right so it's just easier to bring a new sub domain umbrella underneath disney plus put all the twentieth century fox content in there called star and make it a separate kind of expansion for everybody who already has disney plus. All star is disney. Plus for grownups. It's harder to always you know proper phones not anymore. But that's a. That's a good analogy. Yeah all right. So we we have star. It's got all the twentieth century fox stuff. I think it's got more than that. That's also where a lot of like. Abc television stuff ended up. It's also where a bunch of other like indie stuff that disney and fox had bought up over the years. Anything fox searchlight his ended up in there. That's why it's it's a huge a collection of content. I'm amazed that they were able to get the international rights for those together quickly. Enough for star for the international launches. So the question. I have is is disney. Plus going to host new content in star is that is this where they're going to compete with netflix and hbo for adult viewership or are they still kind of not really aiming at that audience. No actually. I think you've got that right in. It's going to get a little weird because contents can vary by country but you can see that a little bit in the in the Release lists you get you get stuff that is decidedly more adult in there and and part of that is just from the content. That's coming out of those houses in the first place. If you look at specifically fx stuff here it's called fx. Hulu it is it is. I don't know that. I'd go so far as to say it's r rated but it's pretty damn close. Fx is yeah fx is definitely not child-friendly content like ninety percent of it like isn't fx. Were archer lives yeah. Fx is is archer archer archers ethics original sort of But yeah we look at the. The new exclusive stuff like fx on hulu like depths. Was one. I loved last year. I thought it was excellent right up until the end and it went. A little off the rails. Mrs america was on there as well. I mean there's stuff that the you wouldn't even otherwise necessarily see on cable but that they're streaming in that fashion. lets them. do you know just a little more than they. otherwise would have And it's not something that you would see on disney plus so this gives them another conduit for that stuff as well. Yeah and the brand new original content is also going. It's going to vary by the audience category. 'cause like anything that's marvel or star wars is not going to be listed under the star brand period. If it belongs to one of those temples it's still going to be disney plus branded and everything starts going to have the both labels at the bottom whenever they're advertising it but it's a matter of if we're going to do original series if it's pg or if it's pg thirteen below it'll probably be disney plus branded and if it's not pg thirteen disney and pg thirteen and up will probably be star
Support grows for inquiry into Capitol riot in Washington, DC after Trump acquittal

One Page At A Time, Jess Wade Is Changing Wikipedia
"So today. We're speaking with just weighed in experimental. Physicists at college. London and every night for the past three years just has written a wikipedia entry about a woman or poc scientists. And if this sounds like a big commitment that's because it is. But what motivates. Just keep with. It is the possibility of using wikipedia to combat the bias. In science. We see it in who gets through peer review. We see it in who gets big papers. Cited we see who gets big grants. We see it and who wins awards. And that means that the people that we celebrate and champion incredibly homogeneous and when wikipedia launched the internet was a very small space and it was very dominated by particular types of people. This kind of you know. Tech bro attitude that we still see in silicon valley and places like that majority white majority western a lot from north america some from western europe and those were the first people to start using it engaging in contributing to wikipedia backed according to a twenty twenty study. Eighty seven percents of wikipedia. Contributors are men with media includes wikipedia wick wicky quote a bunch of other platforms and for just this bias in. Authorship creates a bias in who gets a biography so this huge systematic bias against women against people of color against people from the global south against people who are from any kind of particular marginalized group. So it's kind of two things when we have a very diverse editorship and to the things they writes about a not very diverse and this is obviously impacted by the way that science celebrates people and who took about who we define as notable. Right right just to confirm by. Now you've written what nine hundred articles for the site. Oh no no. How many i've written i've written one thousand two hundred one thousand two hundred whatever so sub usually get a bit excited so obviously that's not three hundred sixty five times three so sometimes i get a little carried away but in general i try and stick to one a day sometimes. Yeah yeah. I mean. I've been going for three. Yes so i've done a pretty good job that in those i. We thought a lot about how to ask you this question. Because twelve hundred articles is an extraordinary accomplishment as far as contributing to this encyclopedia. And so the question we're going to go with is if you could build a quarantine bubble with some of the people that you've written about living or deceased who would you include and why should question so so for sure. I'd have to have some of the people developing vaccines enough air. The person who created the oxford vaccine which is is the vaccine this just been approved for use in the uk. A viral vector vaccine is a phenomenal professor. Sara gilbert sara gilbert has had this kind of fascinating rich directory working on the development of a whole bunch of different vaccines that can walk in different corona viruses and kiss kubat. I don't know if you've come across any of your reporting. She's she's a young african american women who is at the national institute of health and had walked back scenes for for sars and mers. So has this really great legacy but also alongside. I kind of scientific research. An extraordinary publication list works to support people from undeserved communities and walks to really amplify the voices of scientists who too often overlooked but also to support young people and getting into an ethic about science. So that people at different ends of that curric- his kizzie is still very young. Where saratoga established professor but both of them have this kind of extraordinary pathway to really ultimately creating the thing. That's going to save the entire world so suddenly. If i if i had according to about they would be in it. I think that. I mean how many people might out in my quarantine babo because i could keep going. There's no official guidance but the often cited wisdom is less than ten. I'm so primed and ready to tell you stories about everyone. I'm so excited about them. So mainly because i have been. She's someone who i wrote about right at the beginning of my wikipedia. A mathematician who gladys west. She was born in virginia in the thousand nine hundred and she went to college. She went to a historically black college and university to study maths. She goes off in becomes the teach She then eventually what the us government. Wes she did the early computations and calculations for gps so for all of the technologies that almost everything that we do day to day relies on. Now you know you get in your car keys your phone. You try and navigate took particular location. You use the technology that gladys west created. And when i made gladys west page in two thousand eighteen is really hard to find. Information about. Her book is what for the us government so lots of things are adopted. A couple of months. After i put the page live so after i'd finished writing it and put it onto wikipedia. She was selected by the bbc is one of the top one hundred women so she went into the kind of top one hundred women in the world for any intentional creation. Contribution ebba and when you're on a web page like fat when you're on a page so much traffic and insight people hop over to the wikipedia page really quickly so you could just see the numbers of page views of of the wikipedia. Page going up and up and that meant that more and more people contributed to it so grew story grew. How did that make you feel. I just loved it. I was reflecting on this a lot with with my parents lockdown wife. I kept going live. I kept doing this. And i find nothing more rewarding honestly than seeing other people get recognized then champion for what they've done so absolutely love to have quarantine bubble that so many things that i want us. Yeah and you're collecting. I suppose historical information across different websites and books to write these biographies. Has it ever feel like time travel. Yeah completely does feel like time travel. It's it's so it's so interesting. The things that i find kind of thrilling and exciting now feels such a kind of privilege in a rush to be able to get access to all of the resources that we can do. Now you know online libraries. Nine archives sites archived magazines scientific journals extraordinary places that that turn to for this and there are times when you just feel like fantastic achievement. So so if you see in a lot of the world's when women get married they take their partner's name so sometimes it's quite difficult to find out things about their lives if they got married and all of their publications in this new name. And when you find that one link that one connection that tells you that maiden name and then you can go back and find their phd thesis or who was there examining all this extra level of information. So when i get to that. I'm like jump off the sofer like this is great and say yeah. It's completely like a portal into another world. Right i mean. I've chills just listening to you. Talk about this kind of forensic reconstruction of people's lives and who they were outside of who. They married or other kinds of societal markers of that. Yeah a big part of it. I think a big part of my efforts wikipedia. Who i've met the people that we've trained editor phones is to not just make pages about women no make pages about people of color but to make them as good as the comparable page would-be about a white man. Yeah yeah you've been amazing way of connecting all these dots. I really appreciate hearing that I wanna ask you one one last thing. Which is i know that in a lot of ways just talking to you. It sounds like this project is part of such a bigger desire to see science really include nbc driven by all kinds of people. And what do you think it will really take to bring more women and poc's into science so that they stay. Oh such a good question and such a huge one. I mean they're very preliminary simple things that low hanging fruit. If you will know why we don't already have in place you know proper care and support for people who have caring responsibilities so whether that's you know elderly parents or sick parents or especially now in the pandemic who seeing the importance of the childcare and how that skin influence women scientific careers if they're having to work from home but i think more than that we need to really look a scientific institutions and ask really critical questions about why people are leaving. Why do we see. So few black professes. Why do we see so few women in position of leadership. Why do lgbt he. Plus scientists not feel comfortable being out when they're in the scientific workplace and then really put money to and take action to address those individual needs. But i think from a kind of how you get more diverse people into science. I really honestly think the answer is improving our education systems and really support our teachers better. Pay them as well as we pay are bankers so that they stay and so that they create kind of inspiring science lessons. Then go out and got this next generation to come in who keep pushing for this change that we want

Thank you know but yeah. I'm super excited for that. I haven't secured any guests yet but I have a lot on my lists that I'm going to be contacting soon to get on the show. I'm really excited about that. The people I haven't mind are going to be really interesting and some people I have a history with other people. I don't know that while so oh sorry what thirty minutes talking will do without water. Get your throat really dry but it's going to be a fun season and I'm really looking forward to being back because I love doing this by love talking to people even more and I really think that in the first collection of the basement diaries I really love just having people over and shoot in the shit set for about an hour and made me more social. Honestly which I think is always a good thing. Human Interaction is so important people Amin if if you I don't like human interaction makes you uncomfortable like that's fine too. I get that but I try I try to go out and I'm not always the most charismatic person and situations as you know I I can be shy. I feel like when I meet me. I'm pretty shy and then you see how weird I am.

"Both tell each other that they don't believe in love but they obviously have a bond together and that's what keeps them together through the whole show I mean they aren't together through the whole show but you know that's what that's what keeps the story going. It's the attraction that they have to each other even if they won't admit it you know but I think it's such such a rich world hold that these writers built because not only are the main characters so well written but the supporting characters are also really good to that round out the cast or kind of considered the quote unquote sidekicks of Jimmy and Gretchen so Jimmy's roommate Edgar who starts off as you know we just see Liam as this kind of burn out like he was a heroin addict and he fi the Iraq war and has P._T._S._D.. And it has a lot of problems and Jimmy like let's him live at his house rent free but it's really mean to him. You know so it's it's not really good trade off like yes let them live their free but he's a complete jackass to him which is kind of a running the thing throughout the show is you know Jimmy and Edgar's relationship and how much Shit Edgar as willing to take from Jimmy and Edgar is honestly like the beating heart of the show. He's really that actor Desmond bore. He's I think he's from Chicago so he from the little I researched about him. He went to Paul all for theater and now is I think he had a play here in Chicago ended up going to Broadway and that's kind of how he got discovered. You know it's really cool but he he's a great. Great actor and he really makes you feel for this poor guy and then rounding out the cast is Lindsay who is Gretchen friend and she's also the sister of Jimmy's X. Y.. or not ex- wipe ex girlfriend and so all these people are connected in that way you know they all know each other but she's really funny Kinda dumb and has has a husband named Paul who she ends up like losing interest in and it's it's pretty sad and really hilarious there. There's a scene and season three where they deal with the whole like she she wants to sleep with other guys is and she asks him if he would be okay with her sleeping with other guys and he's like no but then he's like well. Maybe this is what we need for our marriage and so he he agrees to be a cock to hurt like cuckold for her and he looks into it and she's obviously not doing it because she's interested in the cuckold fetish but he thinks she is so he does all this research about it and he's like a supreme nerd you know he's like he watches like local town hall meetings on TV and and is interested in astrology and astrology astronomy get those two mixed up sometimes but and and and he he does home brewing and he's your typical like nerd with classes and tucked in Polo and he's like an account manager or something some random job that doesn't even really matter but but yeah it just goes to such levels like they really commit to taking it as far as they can take it. They'd take a right to the edge and even go over the edge sometimes sometimes and it's thrilling and then the two other characters are Jimmy's ex girlfriend who gets married to this doctor named Vernon in the first episode and that's that's where the whole series starts at that wedding and Vernon really like he kinda just seems like do shit. I is a total do she's. He has like but they ah they kind of explore. How bad of doctor he actually is anyway? I won't go into really anymore detail about the characters because it's something you should watch for yourself than <hes> enjoy on your own because I I don't want to spoil all these wonderful characters for you but just to give you an idea of the world and it's and kind of what the themes the show explorers on those same lines like the more serious stuff that they get into they really explore depression and a really realistic way Gretchen play by a cash as I said deals with her depression in the second season and it's done in a way that is very like she's very very catatonic state and can't help it and Jimmy keeps trying to be there kind of in his own way but he just cannot get through to her and it's so sad and there's this scene where you're one of my favorite episodes called L._C._d.. Sound system and if you don't know L._C._d.. Sound system as a band but but that's also what the episode is called and it's in reference to them but Gretchen is watching some of their neighbors just live their lives like the the scene actually starts off with this couple on they have a baby and a life life. You know they have responsibilities like jobs to go to and she is just watching them. Wondering what is that like to have such a full life like that and not be me who is depressed and can't feel anything and so she ends up following them all around and up stealing their dog and taking it on a walk doc just so she can try to to live and somebody else's shoes because she's so unhappy with herself and then she invites Jimmy like she gives the dog back and she's invited in by this couple and Jimmy comes over and they all hang out for a while and she talks to this guy. The husband has been a realizes how unhappy he is in this environment even though she was watching them and was like wow that is the life and then to hear that he's not satisfying and she wonders I at least this is how I read it. She wonders is this all that there is and there's this devastating final shot of that episode where she is walking. Jimmy and Jimmy's talking about like building tree houses or whatever and you know Jimmy is Kinda guy who just talks and talks so he he just talks to hear his own voice as it really like paying attention to how the other person's receiving it ed just the camera keeps going closer and closer on Gretchen and she's just like sobbing and there's the song Um called misunderstanding that plays at the end that I think just captures that feeling so well and just so raw and that's that is my favorite part of the show is when they take it to that level and they make you feel something like that and I think they really. I think that the season two and three to me are the best of the the show ever is and then season five also really really hits the mark because it's really funny but but there are some very truthful and satisfying moments at the end to that you wouldn't really expect but yeah even though I'm talking about all these sad things but I think if you watched it you would also realize how hilarious it is. It really is funny and they'd tackle tackle a lot of topics that they have like Paul one season after him in Lindsey break-up. Up Spoiler alert after they divorce he turns like all right and has like a Richard Spencer Haircut and vary relevant to some of the horrible people that have come out of that movement but then he then he quickly realizes that he needs to change which is good. I'm glad that happened so another favorite character it to remind that was only in the fifth season was Paula Tomkins and it's so funny how he got on the show because in the four season they make some kind of off the cuff joke about how he's a Dick and they chose him because he's apparently a really nice dude in real life so they were just trying to find somebody who's famous enough in the comedy world who does not have a bad reputation at all and so Hello Paula Tompkins saw this and he's a fan of the show apparently and he was he tweeted at Stephen Falk. WHO's I should mention as the creator the show because he he deserves a lot of the credit for why the show is so good but polyp? Tom Pins tweeted to him like hey. I'm a huge fan. I should be on the show and Farren you know soon enough. He was on the show his in the fifth season and he is scary and really shows off his acting jobs honestly and I I really think that he could have a turn into drama kind of like Bob Odenkirk you know because I mean he's still L. Hilarious and the show but but it's a different level for him you know by he's also really great as Mr Peanut Butter and Bow Jack Horsemen such a he's just has such a great right voice that can't even be replicated but yeah anyway I think I think that mostly wraps it up for your the worst. It's just it's all on Hulu or no. The First Four Seasons are on Hulu. You can find season five live on itunes or Google play or if you have like that F._X.. Now thing with your cable subscription you can also access it there but really who has a cable subscription anymore I don't I don't I don't know if any of you do but it's outdated and unnecessary and my honest opinion but yeah you can find it on there and I'm sure soon enough that it will all be on Hulu at least by next year so you can watch it all their it's thirty minute episodes about I think like between ten and thirteen episodes season so it's pretty easy to get through. I think it has sixty two episodes total. which is the same as breaking bad just throwing that out there but it's half the time is breaking bad so if that gets you to watch it even and more than sometimes this shows? I really really really like I feel like I'm promoting my own project. I almost feel like I promote it more than I do my own projects because I don't have to feel the shame of you've promoting my own thing you know like there is and I need to get over this but there is something inside of me that feel so weird about like plugging stuff on social media <hes> because you know I don't WanNa do that. I don't WanNa be like listened to my thing like man I need attention but also I do want to be able to generate an audience and I want to be able to get my stuff out there so it's a it's a catch twenty two sometimes but anyway yeah so that wraps it up for your the worst. Go check it out. It's hilarious. Heartfelt and tragic sometimes ups but yeah before I go. I just wanted to give a little update on the basement diaries so we're going to be starting interviews for collection to in August <hes> right now the date that I'm looking at come back. It's October first because I wanted. I want to try to get a backlog of like two months of interviews so that I'm really ahead of things this time around on because I know as I get into it that it's going to be harder to find guests and it's GonNa take me more time to.

This is real. I know this feels really good because usually I'm very critical of my own work. Even the podcast like this episode that I'm recording now. I'm like there's no theme to this. The people are going to enjoy this and I'm like who cares I mean I want you to enjoy it but also I'm just talking. You know this is like therapy for me and this is what I WANNA do and I I. I don't think podcasting should necessarily be therapy and this podcast. You know this is a special episode because like I said unforeseen circumstances so you just got outta improvise and this is how I'm improvising but speaking of improvising. I have to go to ISO tonight for that meeting I was talking about. It's for a web series. I can say that much. I think that I'm going to be writing on so we'll see we'll see how it turns out. I it seems like a really good group and good people so I'm excited to see what we come up with and it's a small group to which I think is important because if it was any bigger yeah it's Kinda hard to sift through ideas when you have that many people in a room I would imagine I mean I don't have. Have experience with that but this'll be my first time being involved in a a writer's room so that will be a fun and interesting experience. I imagine my cat bandit. He whenever I'm home in the afternoons because I get off around three usually so I'll be home run three thirty and he always jumps on the bed and just like looks at me while he's purring and I'm like what are you want and he just like nudges his head against me. You know rubs against my shoulder and it's really cute. I you know whenever I don't have anything to talk about as talk about my cat. If there's a lull in the conversation I just bring up my cat and and I enjoy that I know the person I'm talking to necessarily enjoys that but I think generally people enjoy talking about animals because they're cute fluffy and make us feel okay about the world even so everything sucks. Oh here's another thing I wanted to talk about so while I was at the lake the one truly horrible experience about it was that I was in the cabin one morning. I was GonNa make clear breakfast breakfast all the other days and I felt bad about it. Whenever anybody does anything nice to me I feel guilty and that's something I'm working on because she enjoys making me food you know she loves cooking cooking and I like to help her out when I can but I'm just not very good at it you know but I think I feel this guilt because I'm like Oh you know I'm just one of those stereotypical men has their girlfriend cook for them and is just a lazy jerk? You know as is like okay. I'M GONNA wake up early. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa make her breakfast. I'm GonNa make some waves ranchero. 's or whatever it was I was planning to make as though I'm doing it making some Hash browns I think and I feel the sharp pain in my foot like stepped tapped on attack or something and I'm just like Oh my God and I looked down and it's this huge wasp just stuck in my foot and I pull it out and I just like go over to the bed and Claire Wakes up from this because I'm like screaming bloody murder and she's like what's going on. I was something she found the wasp and killed it. MHM saved my life because it was out for blood. Let me tell you and hurt so badly that I kept putting ice on it because that was the only thing that would relieve that pain. I mean I you know we washed the wound out with soap and water and vinegar and tried all sorts of remedies. That didn't seem to work. I took you know I happen to have some hydro coating with me from getting my wisdom teeth out so try that try to icing it iced it for too long because that was the only relief that seemed to be working is too long so so it got numb and then whenever it would wear off it would hurt like ten times more so it just made it worse and so I just basically had to have the ice pack off for a long time while I was. squirming around in pain I mean it was horrible and I had to Kinda just lay down the rest of the day. It was pretty much a wasted day. I guess a good thing to happen on vacation because you don't have anything to do anyway but it it was not it was not good and of course I freaked myself out by reading all these Web M._d.. Stuff online and just driving myself into a panic because a lot of places say when you get stung by because this is the first time I was ever stung by a wasp or a B. for that matter and they say that it takes a little bit longer for the Venom to get out the first time it happens to you because your immune system isn't used to it as so from what I was reading. It said it would take maybe up to a week to recover from it before it stops hurting but luckily is stopped hurting like the day after pretty much I mean I was like eighty percent better the next day and then the day after that I was back to normal so so it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but in the moment I literally thought I was going to die. I mean I was like we have to go to the hospital but I can't go to the hospital because I don't have insurance it would cost too much. I mean that's when we're in a place in society when you know I can't afford insurance. I'm I'm off my parents health insurance and I I just don't have enough money to be able to afford two hundred bucks a month for that on top of all my other bills so I just don't have insurance. I'm uninsured and that that's a shame to me. You know that I if I'm in pain I should be able to see somebody about that and not have to pay for it like Oh you wasp sting thing and it's urine. You know like CEOS having an allergic reaction to well. You know you're going to be paying off for the rest of your life if you don't have insurance and that's something that is so wrong with political but I'm going to get political as something that's so messed up about our society. We need to get on that PRONTO. We need to get <HES> socialized healthcare. It's just about time we jumped on board with everybody else else in Durant. I'm not going to go any further than that because I'm sure all my listeners are on the same page as far as back does okay well. I better get going to my meeting. I think might be a little late. Hopefully not I always drive myself in a frenzy about that. I always think Oh my God you're so late and then I leave like you know on time but that's late for me and then I get there like ten minutes early still and I'm okay okay so that's what always happens so what I'm really saying that I'M GONNA be late for being ten minutes early so hope you enjoyed this random checking in episode of checking in with West last we will be back with a normal episode which is just talking about a random topic on July twenty sixth yeah so right at the tail end of the month the the basement diaries.

"Check in with Wes feed because it will no longer be posted to the basement, diaries speed because since I'm taking this hiatus I don't wanna pay for both hosting networks. So it's a financial reason I pay less on the check in with west because I don't post as many upsets sell. I'm keeping this one for now cancelled the other service. But that all the basement dire is upsets are still up there. So you can check them out whenever you want to. I'm just going to renew the storage subscription once I start doing more basement interviews. So yeah, there's the scoop behind that. What else have I been up to? You know, it's been a lot of stuff. I can't really talk about right now not to be coy, but I'm going to be. There are some pieces moving, you know, nothing sentenced stone yet but career-wise there's some pieces moving I have some meetings coming up tomorrow and Tuesday. I'm recording this on Sunday. So hopefully, I'll know about those meetings by the time this episode released like what is going to be next for me? So just a lot of things up in the air. I've been feeling good about my art lately. You know, I feel like stuff is finally sticking to the wall. You know, say you just throw a bunch of stuff out there. See what sticks and finally, I'm getting some good feedback on, you know. Which is a great great feeling. Yeah. I've been. Preparing for vacation to going on vacation next week to Minnesota Minnesota Minnesota is that a good? I don't know if that's a good Minnesotan accent. But I'm working on it. I'm working on it. I would love, you know, one of my favourite TV shows is Fargo. I would love to be in that show because of those dialects. I mean, I know it in the next season, he doesn't even take place in Minnesota or Fargo. But. Still be really cool to be in that show because not I don't only like it for the accents, but I also just love the stories because it's just it's there's something so interesting about watching people from the midwest. Who are, you know, on the surface, very polite and have this, like midwest charm to them getting into these, like horrible crime scenarios. I just I love that stuff. But anyway, as a show that's a dream of mine to be on that show. It'd be so cool. So practicing that Minnesotan accent. I know some people from Minnesota. That's why I'm going there. I had said, just my girlfriend's family. Well, they're not from Minnesota from North Dakota Dakota. How's that Dakota North Dakota? I think it's getting there. I listen back to it to see if it's any good by think that's pretty decent gets a pretty decent Minnesotan accent, or North Dakota accent. Okay. I'll, I'll stop. I'll stop with all that. So other than the career thing I've been, you know, playing some Pok Mon. I saw detective Pika chew, and I really, really got me the stall GIC you know, I was thinking back to my childhood and plant Pok Mon, and what that was all about. And I you know, I have some of my memories as child playing video games, which is kinda sad if you think about it, it's like you should have spent more time outside and living in the world. Which, I guess, is a problem with my generation and generations after us is that we're so addicted to technology that it's hard to actually be present in the world, although I will say this, I was outside a lot as a kid as well. I think I really liked how my mom. Put limits on how much we can play video games in the day. It was usually like during the week, we could only play forty five minute periods. And only, I think we could do ninety minutes on the weekend. So I think that's important to set limits for your kids, not that I'm a parent or a parental expert by any means because I'm not I would right now in my life, I, I would do pretty badly with a kid. You know, I say that, but I'm sure if it was something I knew was going to happen hike. If you gave me like months and months to prepare for being a parent, I think I would kick it into gear right now. You know, but if I found out like tomorrow, I'm going to be a parent, I wouldn't be able to do it. I would have I would have to be like. Give the kid to someone else. I don't know give give it someone who can take care of him or her or them. Yeah, I don't know. I can't even fathom having a child the Gary prospect. But sure nobody has real. I mean, may people are some sometimes unabashedly confident and their skills, which is amazing. I would love to have that skill. And maybe they're not maybe it's just a surface thing where they appear to be, but inside, they are still a little bit insecure about it. But, you know, everything takes practice and it takes. Reworking, your mind to be able to come at that task whatever it may be with a confidence in a level of preparedness. Anyway, that's the end of my masterclass on parenting. I know it was a useful time for everybody out there. If you're getting ready to have kids, this is the podcast for you. I would love that a podcast with parenting advice about somebody from somebody who is not apparent. I think I'm onto something there. Do you then people listen to that guys? I think so. I think it would be what, what would it be called child bliss? No, it's a little too simple. What about? No child left behind because it's be like it'd be like a play on words like no.

"Mean, he would just be eaten alive, and I mean, it would destroy the party because that, that is an healthcare and. And those social programs are what you know, that a lot of apples owed on. Yeah. I mean, the country isn't very culturally liberal. I mean, we're not going to like, you know, win an election based on like whoa, kness. No. You know, we just don't have the numbers. Yeah. But yeah, I mean there's also he. The, you know, the whole Anita hill controversy has the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee. And he declined to hear three other women who accused Thomas of treating them inappropriately, and then he ignored their, they're pleased to testify Senate to about Thomas was confirmed fifty to forty eight and continues to destroy American live on the supreme court, and that was because Biden wanted. Yeah, he may allow that to happen. Yeah. And then Biden doesn't apologize to Anita hill for thirty years, like he didn't apologize so much that it became a joke to Anita. Hell so that it became a running joke, like whenever the doorbell ring, they'd be like, oh, is that Joe Biden to apologize and he didn't? And then when he starts his campaign, he does a fake apology like I'm sorry, that happened, but I didn't have any control over it, even though he did. Yeah. And then I could non up. And then finally after people dislike ripped into him for a long time he. Finally seems to have like actually apologized but it's like thirty years too little too late. Sorry, want to run for president how, but that doesn't heal this wound. Yeah. And so, you know, one, one point quick here. I think the audience of this. It's probably younger. Yeah. I mean yeah. Probably not going to be reaching a lot of like boomers on Facebook. Well, actually, I there's a bread vendor that I work with who is a regular listener. So hey, I know he's really interested in politics and stuff. Awesome. He's I think he's part of. Yeah. The baby boomer's. Yeah. Well, there's nothing certainly wrong with being older. I no not at all. But there are different age. And so, I mean, if, if you're young person and you feel like all your friends, hate, Joe Biden nears, like topic deal. Never gonna win. Everyone hates them. Talk to your family and talk to your older co workers, and your friends. Yeah, I try to think it's so important to engage with not only like your bubble your circle, like make sure he reach out to other people like where you work. That's been in the personal touch really makes it you know because I've worked in field for campaigns and. Political science research shows that the conversations that work the most from people you now. Yeah. I mean, if you, you know, it's even better than knocking doors to just go talk to a few of your friends, definitely, and like remind him devote talk to him about the issues, and I mean with Joe Biden, there's something for everyone, like, if your dad is like like my dad is like a union guy, our down. Yeah. Our dad. Yeah. So, you know, I told them about Joe Biden's comments about how China is our friend and they're, they're not bad. They're and they're not competition for. Yeah. And he was mad about that. But, but, like generally speaking, he would be somebody who supported job. I would at least be like, interested in, I think I think he feels fairly fun Lee towards them. Because I mean he likes Obama and, you know, he liked the Obama presidency. Yeah. Know most liberals that. But, you know, and but also, you know, if if there are young people supporting him. I mean talk to them about how he wrote the crime. Bill, talk to them about how he's led the war on drugs. I mean he's, he's still as far as I know. He is still against legalizing marijuana. I think that makes him the only major candidate to be so I don't know if he's sad much about it recently. But I believe he's still against that. Wow. That, if that doesn't show how out of touch you are. I don't know what does. Yeah. I think we're going to be wrapping it up here. So is there anything just about the democratic primary, that you wanna get across to my listeners really quick, like any advice for voting or? Any tips you have at all about sifting through these candidates. Yeah, I mean just, you know it's. Just, you know, talk to your friends. I guess, I mean yeah, it's a, I mean in my view on social media, it out and talk to people like face to face. I think that's I mean, wouldn't you say, that's probably the most effective way to start a conversation. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean it's early. I mean, we still have a number of months ago, but it's it's always important because you've got a candidate like Pete Buddha judge who like would not be here if he hadn't made that jump into like, you know, seven percent in the polls. And I mean, it's just it does matter where you are now. Yeah, I realize, so I mean you know it's just go out there and talk. I mean, like me, I'm still deciding, I like Sanders in Warren, a lot. Yeah. I don't know who I think I'm kind of in the same boat. I'm between them and I'm still interested in like Buddha. Judge a little bit. And yeah I'm just interested to see these debates to, to see what issues the debates will. Yeah. That'll help sift through ya. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean you know. The media does some some stupid things in the coverage. But I mean they do generally cover the major candidates. Yeah. I mean just. Yeah. Before we go, we have to talk about one more candidate John Hickenlooper. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So I don't really know much about him other than he's deep throat with his mom. Yeah, he went to the movie theater to see deep throat and theaters with his mom, all you need to know. I'm not gonna explain it further. But I actually actually look do look up. John higgins. I think he's, he's the former governor of Colorado and he's, he's ordered his, his campaign is focused on anti monopoly sort of trust busting which I can get behind. And that's something that we desperately need candidates like Warren and Sanders talking about that already. So they're good voices on it. But Hickenlooper is running a pretty good campaign. And I think he's he's, he's worth giving a look to even though the throat. Yeah. He did see deep throat with us. That's pretty weird. Yeah. Yeah. Is weird is pretty straight? He actually said that in his CNN, townhall some very strange thing reached millions of people it's weird that he brought it up and nobody else like. Yeah. Well, I guess I'm not really sure exactly. How brought? But yeah, I mean, pretty strange. Well, I think that's a great note to end on. Yeah. Well, just really quick, you know, if I could I so I'm I have a Twitter account. Oh, yes. Plug away. So I have a Twitter account that I'm I've been posting on its at stopped, Biden. The username say noted Joe. So I'm I'm going to be updating that with snow like videos Biden's pass, and you have a personal Twitter to just my name at canton, Telford. Okay. Cool. Yeah. Well, definitely check him out on Twitter. He has great political content on there. So I know. I know whatever I'm on there, I'm always. Scrolling down. I see a bunch of political tweets, and I'm like, oh, let's this one have to say, yeah, I just waste my life on Twitter. So it's we all don't you know, we all have our things for sure. And we all have our vices. Yeah. I mean, it's, it's at least you're staying connected as. Yeah. I mean there's the biggest thing. Yeah, I mean you know, as long as you're not just like spinning your wheels, and you're sort of developing thoughts and also just stepping away every now, and then, you know, exactly like taking trips to Europe to did you tweet at all. And when you earn your I did, but I did I tweeted less for sure. I know I I I would see some tweets as like Ken, what are you doing in your UB? Why keep the content? Had to keep the content flying. All right. Well, thanks for coming on canton. I'll see you at dinner tonight. Yeah. Thanks for having me, and I'll see dinner. Have you back in the states, and I'm going to sit here and ignore you until dinner? Okay. I know. We're not gonna talk. All right. Thanks, ken. Yeah. Nice to be here..

"Lucky and stumble upon the answer. I mean, you, you can do your work, and you can like decide which suspects. So you think it has. But at the end of the day, your guess is as good as anybody else's. I mean, I guess a Vigili you can eliminate so many categories on there that, you know who it is. But come on have a little spice in your life. Just get guests on the second turn. Boom. Okay. Anyway, we were talking about this, this conversation between myself and nobody has gotten very sidetracked. We're talking about. We were talking about me and then we were talking about clue. Let's get back to me because this podcast is about me. So what else have I been up to world while I've been? Along with applying to jobs. I've started auditioning more, I've, I created a self tape audition for like agencies. Just trying to get my name out there. Slip it under the door be like it's Wesley till furred. What if what if people still did that like they just you just went to like some office, and you just like slid a DVD under their door? This is this is me now that wouldn't fly, I know that wouldn't fly. This is the most convoluted intro to any podcast I've ever had and you'd better back. I'm gonna keep it because this is the quality content that people pay for even though you get it for absolutely free. I'm drinking some coffee right now. So I got some energy going. Okay. So long story short. I have been good just in a very transitional period right now after I finished my class at I oh, I'm trying to figure out what I wanna do. Trying to get a new day job trying to get my name out to agencies all that good stuff. And I think I want to do more stand up comedy as well because I am a riot. All right. That's enough of that Wesley. Okay. I feel like I'm two versions of myself right now, the one version is like, hey, we need to stay on schedule. Get this done and go onto the next thing like a very task oriented person. And then there's the other part of me who's like, oh, just chill out. We'll get to it when we get to. Let's just talk about whatever and people listen to it or they won't I don't know. And I feel like it's been more of the latter personality this intro. But now I'm going to switch over. We're going to get down to brass tacks here and talk about. Moral Orel, like I said it was a show that was on a dull swim from two thousand five to two thousand eight it's a clay animated series brilliant really writing. And let's get into it right now on check. And then with Wes. All right. So I apologize. I if he can hear my sniffling I am sick right now, but I'm still doing this for you guys. So I broke this ended up into chunks. I did the intro yesterday. I'm doing this portion of it today. So hope probably sound a lot better in the intro than I do now, but I'm pushing through it, what we'll do this together. So as I said, we're talking about moral Orel aired on don't swim in two thousand five to two thousand eight price said that way too many times. But it is a very interesting show in the universe of adult swim programming. Adult swim is not my favorite. My favorite network to be perfectly honest, I think, has some issues with its past and, you know, a lot of their shows on their age too. Well, and even now, like I like Rick and Morty a lot. It's a good show, but I hate the phantom surrounding it. And it's like those quote unquote fans who had a problem with season three because they had women writers. They said the content got worse. First of all season three was the best thing. They've done so far. It's amazing. And that's probably large in part because they have women on the staff now. I mean, it also dates back to think like five or six years ago adult swim had zero women on their staff, like no riders on any of the shows were women that is insane to me, like you wouldn't. You wouldn't think to just put like one woman on a show to right? I mean that is insane to me. I mean. I know adult swim is kind of like a boys club thing. But it really shouldn't be. Yeah. Anyway, like, like we don't have too many of those in this world. Anyway. So I got that off my chest. So now we can talk about moral oral moral. Orel is kind of an exception to the rule for me. It's a really funny show, especially in the first season. But then it takes a deep dive into like more dark territories. As it goes on, basically, the show is about a young boy, named oral who always misinterprets lessons from the bible, too comedic facts. Like, for example, he learns that it's a send to be dead because you're not living life to its fullest. So he decides to help all the dead people in the cemetery cemetery by raising them with the Necker NAMA con with a friend of his, I mean like ridiculous is that and that's kind of the formula for the first season as that he misinterpret something in the. Double. He does something ridiculous and the town has to deal with it. By the end of the episode. It always ends with Orrell's dad who brings him into a study and spanks him and tells them that, that's not the right thing to do, but he's a total hypocrite and. Doesn't know what he's talking about. So that's kind of the first season. But then the second season starts to get into darker territory, and it wasn't really until the season two finale that the show really hit its stride, for me, at least, because it really tapped into this leg. Visceral. Drama. I mean it really felt like a play this episode in particular that I'm talking about is called nature. It's a two part episode. It's where Ohrel's dad takes him out on a hunting trip to like tournament to a man. You know, that's kind of his idea of what being a man is going out into the wilderness and killing your own dinner. So he takes them out for this trip. And his dad just drinks the whole time, and you see oral dealing with this feeling of. Yeah. You see or on this trip dealing with. Feelings

"Yes. Either way thinks he's like another thing me another thing. I think is interesting right now, we're in the process of cleaning up our apartment. Oh, yeah. And there are some we have some bags on the bad right now. And he's just laying on them cats. Love plastic. Yeah. Do do. You know, why that is? I don't know. I think it might have something to do with like the sound idea. Well, he hates the sound. That's true. Like whenever we shake plastic bag. He's he's out of there. I think that's because it's like startling. But if he like lays laying on a plastic bag in this making the sound making the sound himself so weird. He's like not us thought a normal. He's like he's he's really relaxed a lot of ways but super anxious and fearful well, yeah. That brings me to another thing of like how you can tell by their verbal language like how they're feeling or there. Non verbal nonverbal like. With how they're back when their back is arched that means they are like tents. I haven't no I feel like bandits really good about communicate verbally. He is good. A lot better. A lot of cats. I've met her. He's just like meows. And like, yeah. And he has lanes all day long like distinct meows like I can tell when into meow that he's hungry. Yeah. Versus a meow that he's thirsty. Shang get them and pick them up. So yeah. Bring him in here key. Yes. So she she's going to give bandit here, really quick. Something I just wanted to say really quick while she's getting them. We are going to be starting a patriotic page pretty soon here for checking in with Wes, we're still going to post a couple more free episodes. But after that, if you become a patron on the patriot page, you can donate ten dollars a month and have access to any future. Checking in west episodes. Okay. We're back and bandit is here making his first appearance on the feline behavior episode of checking in with Wes he just woke up so just woke up from a nap. I'm surprised she's down meowing. I know right. Hi, buddy. So can you tell me a little bit about being a cat? No. I'm just keep holding of obviously they'll make make some complaint. Yeah. It usually whenever we pick him. He hates getting picked up. I wonder why that is do you think it's just because he is so heavy just doesn't like being picked? Yeah. But it annoyed by this enough to make. But yeah. He's man. His really struggling right now. Oh, you do it picked up pointing contest. No. This is amazing. He's putting this pawn Clair's Chen right now. Yeah. Listeners. Yeah. So I think we'll do a little recap of what we talked about. So this has been all about feline behavior. It kind of turned into a little bit of a conversation about pets in general. But. I we kind of touched on getting, you know, since we're getting a new cat now and kind of the process of bringing a new cat into a new environment with an existing cat who has already lived here. Oh, we never talked about. Oh, yeah. We so we have been looking for names for new cat. So if anybody has any ideas, let us know. Yeah. Yeah. But I think at the top of our list, we have Buffy Buffy Buffy. What else basil basil the top one? Otis otis. We're yeah. I kind of prefer name star beat band it. I'm kardashian. But what were some of the great ones? I had Cristobal Cristobal Cristobal. Steve Steve after my dad. Oh my God. He would eight I know. So tell him that would be. So my dad is he hates cats like with a passion. Yeah. So you can understand like his love for my mom that further complicates the whole fair cat. He. So he hates cats. They are like his least favorite creature. Yeah. I think because he loves dogs so much and he loves them because they're so Royal and friendly and like cats and say don't give a shit about you. I think it'd be had a pet cat in his home. He would feel differently. I used to be a dog. I don't know. I with him. I don't know he stayed with us for a couple of weeks. That's true. And see. So this is. Banda is just sitting straight up right now implicitly. Yeah. And that is win catch sits straight up like that. That means they're in their like alert goes. Oh, he hurt you leaving. He knew that I was onto him. Yeah. Oh, no. So so then we got into a discussion about feral cats and kind of the differences between feral, domesticated cats. And that brought us to tell you about ended again. And it always comes it always comes back to bed every how he is. The lowest on the totem pole of. Yeah. Aggressive really does a lot for. Okay. So I think I think we're good to wrap this up now. So it's good. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me. Of course, you know. You know, you're the hardest guests to book, I know a lot of requirements. You know, it's it's hard to get you on. But I'm glad you came on again.

"Like, no. And so in that regard. I'm like glass got the death penalty because he escaped from prison twice. Also. It's like this this person should no longer be around. Yeah. And it does. But but it's weird because in the documentary, they also show. People who went to the execution, and they're like holding up signs like kill Ted Bundy, and like so this huge celebration in a way. And I think I think that's kind of weird to entertainment. Yeah. It's like turning this thing that shouldn't be entertainment. And was the thing for a long time where people would gather like in the gallows or whatever. Yeah. It would gather in the town square to like hanging the hanging. Yeah. It was almost their form of television. Yeah. How people like nowadays are are very thrilled about watching serial killer documentaries. Yeah. You know, that it was it was that was their form of entertainment. We did we talk about how Hansel and gretel. Now, we didn't know. So that's. Technically German folklore, but German folklore has Scandinavian folklore has taken a lot of influence from German folklore. They kind of fit into each do original story of Hansel and gretel is like way more fucked up than like the. Chillers into that. We all have come. What is what is the original shades is just I think it's just darker than than when it was it was a way to from what I know is a way to like from for parents to like sort of scare their kids into like never go out there on the forest by yourself or else, which you'll get you and said this witch would like kidnap the kids, and it would lure kids and with with like sweets, and it was the original. I think a story it was is darker in the sense that it was like, it was more it had more horror tendencies behind it. Yeah. And in originated originated from. Pagan a lot of pagan. I guess myths and stories as well. Yeah. Kids will get lured into the into the forest with like with candy this witch where UN and then she would eventually she would like kill them for their souls. Okay. I remember like I have never actually sat down and Radic. The you know. You know, where the folklore comes from. Or what the original story is. But I always remember like the witch putting them in like, a pot of stew something to them up to cook them up and. I guess it wasn't to talk about this it. Yeah. Yeah. Took the kids up kid. Yeah. Yeah. That's what they did. And. It's just a fact are right.

But but yeah, I I didn't use to be scared of I don't know if I'm scared of clowns. I just I hate the idea of now the of what they've been turned into. Yeah. And it's it of you know, for people who are trying to make an honest living as clown. Right. Yeah. Like, I don't know if you've seen I know people that we went to school with like circus training. I know I know d- was really into. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. And I actually remember she posted something that I really liked about kind of the Stig how there's a stigma against clouds now and how books like it. And you know, now that it's been turned into a movie like that is at the front and center of the culture clowns. And it's like, no, not all clowns are like. Scary makeup and balloons. Okay. So we were talking about clowns. Yes. And how you are a huge clown. I am a huge cloud mice. Burn the year. No. Yeah. I'm a jokester. I'm a clown. We retired. How serial killers are kind of hold themselves. A lot of sirens. Luring luring their victims and to. Their game. And. Specifically like Ted Bundy was this charming figure who is. I mean, I don't know if you saw that documentary. I saw the first episode because it's a series of episodes. Right. Like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I saw the first episode, and I was like I don't like. I kind of hard to watch. It is hard to watch man. It's fucking in. I think. That this current trend of of serial killers and murderers that are very getting very like popularized. Yeah. No. It's a weird thing to think about. Yeah. Because it's like, you don't you don't wanna give them. And that's what they want the popularity. It's the popularity they want it to be covered so much. So in a way, we're we're kind of submitting to that their desire keeping the Ted bundy's been dad thirty years like if there is an afterlife, he's probably looking on and be like while. Hey, how did he die? He got sentenced to death. He doesn't. That's right. So I think it was the electric chair actually good. I don't know if you believe in the death penalty, I to a certain extent believe in the in the death penalty for people's specifically like that like like, even because you know, if like if they were to get like released after however, many years, I don't think anything would change. Yeah. I go back and forth between it because like there's some instances where I think I'm like is giving somebody the death penalty, really like Justice, and you know, as that. Yeah. And then you get into this whole argument of like who like 'cause I don't really believe. Who you decide? Yeah. Like an eye for an I kind of thing, you know. I don't know if I believe in that. Because also you're spending more money putting them to death. Then you are incarcerating like it costs more money to. You know have lethal injection than it is to. Then it is to imprison them for life. So I think there's a conversation of like while you're wasting resources by just having this because they're going to be in prison anyway. So it's not like they're going to harm anybody anymore. That's through the may harm people in. Yeah. That's. But it's a complicated conversation for sure. Because then it's like there's somebody like Ted Bundy like do they deserve to be alive..

"Kill them or eat, their souls, whatever they do and that obviously has evolved to like pennywise. Yeah. The fucked up movie, dude, I hate clowns. Which is. Yeah. That's probably that's probably the most popular one of the evil clowns. But I mean, it's everywhere like the killer clouds that people are dressing up as clowns like just Ecksteen. Yeah. Just to like scare the people. Then think you're about to get murdered. What do you think it is about? I mean. Other than its history from like medieval times, because they're these all these creepy image here. Look at this. When I know the listeners can't see, but like, there's creepy cave drawing. Oh, yeah. You can tell from his his grown. He's like he has a human shape and form to him. But he has like no is. Yeah. And he looks very well, very emaciated. So he he looks like part human, but also not from this world either. Yeah. That's creepy. I know a lot of people who have like a legitimate like phobia of clowns. Yeah. And we went to this one. I went with a friend who had this phobia and the haunted house that we went to had this room full of clown. Did they make sign a release form? No, no. He didn't know about our him. Sorry. He didn't know about this room full of clowns. Oh shit. And so we feel like you gotta expect if you're going to haunting. No, there is going to be this roomful because. So he had to he likes started screaming, and he light had to leave like somebody had to ask him out. Oh shit. I met up with them after ferns. Okay. Crying himself to sleep. Yeah. Bringing it back to the Simpsons again. There's this great scene where it always comes back to the sites predicted a lot number history. Really have kind of scary. But there's this great scene where? Bart has a new bed. Like Homer Bill. Ten minutes this like really creepy clown. It's a clown bed. And Bart is like covered up in his blankets like shivering from being scared. And he's like can't sleep cloud will eat me. Yeah. What do you think it is about about about clad? That's kind of what I was trying to get to. It's like, I don't know. 'cause I part of me thinks it may be like the makeup because because what we've learned from clouding like in our theory experiences that. You know form of entertainment and clowns are very attuned to what the audience is doing as well, so yeah. So it very much aware of the audience that they're playing to. Yeah. And that's where a lot of the comedy comes from it as like responding in real time to. What the audience is doing? But then as as we've progressed into this kind of, you know, like more like the Cloyne win like this this makeup and all making like, I think part of it may come from John, wink, AC, actually. Yeah. Because he dressed up as a as a clown for children's birthday parties. And then he would, you know, take them. Molest them and kill them, man. It's fucked up. Yeah. I mean, that's also the that's probably the Lor aspect of it to that. Kids. I mean, John Wayne geisha is kind of like a modern day coin. Yeah. He would he would basically Lewer quote, unquote. Kids because kids growing like as when your kid you like a clown. I liked cloud when I was like clowns. When I was say, you weren't really scared. I wasn't really scared and causing until until I started more like getting more into like interested in like scary, movies and horror thriller movies. And then my view of clowns just kind of became became a skewed because of those. But yeah, with John Wayne gay, see like Laura aspect of like, you know, this is this is someone is something that kids like really find funny..

"And when we got him he was a little shy. He was you know. Always hiding everywhere and his his I was a little matted, and he wasn't cleaning himself as much. But now he's cleaning himself all the time. He'll be sitting and. In the chair in the corner and held us be. Like that just constantly and. We got him a little a little toy one of those feathered toys where you dangle it in front of him. And he just goes nuts over that thing. So I'm trying I'm trying to really engage his core during that as well. Because he's he's a little tubby. You know, he's he's got a little little extra hanging out there. But it's not a bad thing. He's just he's just living a good life. That's what that means. Now, but we. One point. We were like maybe we should cut back on food a little bit. And then I we really thought about it. And I was like I think we just need to get him a little more exercise. But anyway, this is not a cat podcast. I promise you that. Let's get into this conversation that I had with Dario. If I didn't mention this before Dario kerryon is my guest today, we talk about skin and navien folklore and its influences on modern day horror films. Please enjoy the very first episode of check in with Wes, welcome to check in with Wes a by weekly podcast where I just talk about stuff that interests me. I have a guest with me today. Dario kerryon, the very first guest on the show. Does this mean, I interest, you you do interest me we have very interesting conversations? Yes, we do. You know, you've been on the basement diaries twice. And unfortunately, all three times the recordings haven't worked out because of. I'm an amateur audio engineer or you learn you grow. That's that's the best way. That's the best way to grow is to learn and make mistakes. Yeah. Exactly. I totally agree with you on that. But both the times we had really fascinating conversations don't regret that. Because. No, I don't I don't got to. It's just a shame that we. We're nobody can. Now, we had them. It'll be for our repertoire for our memories. It's exactly. And I think we grew from both those conversations. Yeah. Both ways. Yeah. Mentally, and physically and physical is a lot of physical exercise coversations. But we are here today, and this is different than the basement diaries because the basement diaries all interview somebody and learn about their lives. But in this we pick a specific topic. And we talk for you know, however long we need to. As long as time. We'll let us. Yes. Exactly. And today we are talking about folklore ad. It's how has affected the John RA of horror specifically Scandinavian folklore, but I'm willing to other. Folklore and different cultures. Yeah. There's a lot. You never never never thought of folklore how it has influenced a lot of the horror and thriller kind of. Aspects of movie. Yeah, topics, and it's interesting we were kind of making just a brainstorming list of or films, and a lot of them that we wouldn't initially think would have these inspirations from folklore, whether whether it was a conscious decision by the filmmakers or not. They do have those influences on them one. We were talking about that. We were surprised that did have that influence was creep. You've never seen that movie seeing that she's go watch. And now, it's a it's a great movie. It's basically about this guy who. He makes a Craigslist post. Yeah. Can add an ad on Craigslist have filmmaker come and make the stock memory about him because he's dying of cancer. He wants to leave that that video that documentary film. I fan for his son. Yeah. And so the guy gets there, and they're, you know, they're warning signs. Definitely that this guy may not be the guy that he thought he was, but he's here for the money because it's like a thousand dollars. Absolutely get that. But the guy is super charming. He's super doubt seems to be like pretty. Influential and this guy learns a lot from him..

"Till furred. That's right. I am that Wes the west from the title of the podcast, no way. Right. So what is checking in with west while if you are following the basement diaries, which you probably are if you're here, the basement diaries is a podcast that I put out every Tuesday where I interview somebody who I know or find interesting, and we just talk about their lives and maybe touch on other subjects too. But what checking in with west will do is it'll cover certain topics that I find interesting, and I will either bring somebody on to talk about it. Or just talk about it to you guys. It's a way for me to step outside of my comfort zone and research topics that I wouldn't normally research so something I'm going to ask for you listeners. Out there is if you have a topic that you really want to learn more about, but you're too lazy to research it or you just have a topic you're really passionate about and what me to talk about it hit us up on social media. And I'll try to get your topic on the show at some point. I think that would be a really fun way to keep you guys in the loop as well. So at the start of each episode, I think been because this is called checking in with Wes. So I do want to have that checking in time with you all so what am I up to you ask? Well, I'm taking this class at IO as I've said multiple times in the basement diaries. But it's you know, it's what's going on in my life. So I guess I have to talk about it. It's it's hard to find the time to write. It's it's hard to sit down and just let yourself be creative without judging yourself. I think I'm pretty good at it. I do think that I have called avai did a space for myself. You know, since I was probably twenty years old. I've been pretty good at that. And just making myself do the work that it takes to be creative because you know, as with other stuff like. Doing tasks like doing dishes and making phone calls and taken care stuff. I'm not that great at all be the first to admit that. But I am really good at just sitting down and make myself right or making myself come up with an idea. That is something I'm pretty good at and I- proud of that have an audition coming up shit. It's coming up quick. It's on Monday Monday, the eighth. So I gotta get that monologue ready. I'm excited though. That's my first edition back. Like, five months. I think because I did a gig. Last year for children's theatre company, and I decided not to continue with them. And that's kind of when I decided to. Do this podcast after concessions was over? And. Yeah, I took a little time off from doing that. But I'm getting back on that horse. And I'm doing that as well. And now we're doing to episodes of the podcast a week. So it's it's a lot to do. But I'm ready for it. Because it's all stuff. I want to be doing a the only trouble is that I still have to work my day job and do all this stuff. Like if I could just do all this stuff and not work a job. I mean that would be the dream. But I'm not gonna I'm happy. Now though like, I'm not be the happiest at my job. But everything outside of my job is great like I have an amazing girlfriend shout at to Clare. She's just so supportive and just as really really help me out to become a better person as well. I think she. Deserves a medal to be honest. So that part of my life is great. We have a cat named bandit. He's. You know, he's a little sassy, but he's really coming into his personality more we've had him for about about a year now..
