"I'm a wary sort. And so they're not a lot a lot of people who are in charge of me and I've crafted my life that way and I I've been a control freak. I've tried to be softer about that. And there's a great story about tell you quickly. I took tango lessons. I just love the image of you taking tangle of loved it now. That was so much at Iowa's by Tango Teacher for I'm not kidding. For the first two months he would drop his arms and stand back and say Yardley you have got to stop leading. The point was and it was a metaphor for my life. The dads doesn't work. If we both lead yeah somebody has to follow and what I realized when I got it was it was incredibly generous and gracious and sort of a relief. Leave to let somebody else in charge of YOU and so I learned to trust that so when I met Dan he was like that. He had his stillness about him. That was so in charge without being overbearing in any anyway he was. No I got this is my job. You're my job so God so it was so quietly attractive to me. It was so okay I just knew that I was in good hands. It's so good. I think that it makes a lot of sense. Eighty seven seven percent of this audience is female what you just said resonate so much with what we're really seeking in a partner but in our world today women do everything right. Women are working. They're taking care of everything and the roles of kind of gotten confusing a little bit. And it's It's a hard thing when love feels like the kind of thing I know for me. It's like if you wanna be loved earn. It produce be productive shell up and once in a while you want someone to come along ago. You're good you don't have to do anything. have to be impressive right now. You don't have to figure it out you don't have to be Lisa like you get to be off now now. You're off duty. What a gift for you? This was such a gift I had talked about having fun. It's so much fun every cabinet and you're awesome. Let's do it again then. Let me in person. Let's person Yardley Smith. You are an absolute delight. It was such a gift to get to know you and here you are. Thank you for being here. Thanks for making the time. Thank you for having me a pleasure. I still can't believe that we had that moment together and she listened to my audiobook. Did you hear that. Is this real life. This really really incredibly honored end because she cares so much about you. She actually emailed me the day after we did the episode she said. Would you read this to the audience. Because there's something else that I really wish I would have said so. Now I'm going to read you an email that she sent to me. Kathy you asked me this question and I wanted to make sure that you read this to your listeners. Because I want them to hear this what I really want. Actors to. They audition is create balanced. Because I didn't and when my on camera career began to seriously falter after twelve exceptional years of extraordinary success. I had no idea we ought to do. I often say I was like a house without a foundation. Yes at that point I was on the simpsons but the half hour series was only two years old when things started a slowdown on drastically for me on camera and I was panicked. Because I didn't think voice over was gonNA sustain me creatively. Also in hindsight panicked came from me tying my identity identity demise success in profession. I am what I do. This is such a slippery slope. Oh my gosh. Because the moment you aren't able to do what you love at the level you're used to doing wing it you don't know who you are and you feel like a failure so what I really want to impart to actors. Who auditioned a lot in one? No one secret that they should implement. I want them to find find balance like your life depends on it because it does so after your audition reward yourself regardless of how you think your audition went in the room. Who Cares the point? Is You've likely it just made yourself incredibly vulnerable so you might need reassurance. He needs to be seen. That means meet a friend for coffee or lunch or walk. Go to a class. You love do anything to take take care of yourself that makes you feel whole and empowered do something anything that centers you make your audition part of your day until you this. Because I didn't know or do these things for many any years. I attach my worth to make compliments while I still had the simpsons. I didn't understand why on camera career was tanking when I had not taken my eye off the ball even for a second in so I didn't didn't know why I felt so defeated but had a massive identity crisis after Herman's head was cancelled and I could barely get work on camera after that. It took me eight years to pull up my socks and try a different path which is a whole other conversation we can have on the podcast but a great one really.

"Then. I moved moved to New York two weeks after doing that. Play in Ohio at that summer theater and I was auditioning for Mike Nichols on Broadway within six weeks of being in New York and I got that amazing and what I did actually. The job was understudying Cynthia. Nixon display called the real thing starring. Jeremy Irons Glenn. Close Peter Gallagher. Christine Baranowski the ski not normal. It was so but at the same time when my agent said you'RE GONNA under study on like I'm GonNa what. Oh No. Oh no no no no no. The train is coming off the tracks and not doing matt. I'm sorry what you are You'RE GONNA sit down and meet Wyatt and you're GonNa pay attention and take this job and starts use use of so so And The serendipity of of course I learned so much this was nine hundred ninety three and I was nineteen years old. I'd never had an acting lesson. I was girl from nowhere. And so we opened on Broadway in January of Nineteen eighty-four a four storey. Can't believe the vegetable and Cynthia was then pulled out of the real thing. In March of eighty four to go do Mike Nichols new Broadway. Play hurly-burly and I got to take over the part. This was a huge break and what I did not right now was under studies. Never take over part. It was massive and so I got to do it with the original cast until June when they changed the cast over and then I stayed on and so to be able to be on stage with Jeremy Irons and Christine Baranowski because there was only one scene was huge. Then in that time you know I did my first. Three movies one of which was The first one was heaven. Help us which start. Of course Mary Stuart Masterson was in Patrick Dempsey Donald Sutherland. And you know everybody than I did. The legend Billie Jean which has become a huge cult classic. Which of course bombed at the box office when it came out I was says barely outlawed enough to run the credits and thank God for cable like cable? Television had just sort of come on scene and they didn't have anything and so that movie. Iran Ad Nauseam twenty four hundred for. Yeah so anyway. Long story short things had really kicked off. I did maximum overdrive. The Stephen King movie that Steven King directed a all of these things at every turn heard I thought oh this is going to make me a star and of course it didn't because these movies didn't do well but I will say each. Each of those characters was what we call a breakout character in our business. You know so they continued to get noticed. And when I did the real thing on Broadway I got an agent because my New York agent didn't have an office so I came out to Los Angeles to do pilot season. I immediately got a pilot. Elit this pilot was terrible. Oh my God and even as ambitious as I was I remember thinking. I hope this pilot doesn't go because I'll shoot myself and thank God. It didn't go but I continued to get guest spot roles and Blah Blah and in the mix of that. I got an audition for for this funny little voiceover called the simpsons. Now I didn't have a voiceover agent. I never wanted to do voiceover. And and part of that was I had been teased. So relentlessly for my voice as a kid you know I have a funny high as -ly now every it has but now it's icon ick. Trust me when I was you know twelve when I was sixteen when I was twenty it was not a conic I had been so shamed for it. I never considered sittard an asset at also I will say in our business. Voiceover is kind of like the ugly stepchild of acting. And I don't consider voiceover requiring any less skill or any less emotion or any less a part of my heart and my soul than I do when I'm in front of the camera her on stage while it shows that show is so phenomenal but I to bought into that. Oh this doesn't really count. And so what is true is that I always always loved my character. What is also true is that here's a cautionary tale? Have a vision but do not attach Yup you division of your success that you can caught when you're five years old and let that be the one and only way that you're going to achieve success today nimble right and the irony is that as as nimble as I thought ought and considered myself to be I was actually incredibly rigid and it took me a long time to forgive myself for not achieving the really so very specific idea of what I thought my success my stardom my sort of trophies fees would be as an actor and realize maybe they would come in a different and yet more rewarding form. Yeah Yeah and that was when I was able to recognize that regardless of you know people still come at me and go. Oh so you just rescue voiceover right. And it's the just of course that is the qualifier that makes it seem like it's less than on and so you know you often say in your book ending your podcast. Speak to your tribe of two hundred. Don't try to satisfy two thousand. Who are sort sort of half their right? You don't really love and support and recognize what you do who don't really see you and and the people who really resonate with Lisa Simpson and with our show and the other things that I stand for nonprofits that I give to and things like that. Those are the people that I really am interested in engaging lists and the ones who say you just voice server right yeah it is amazing. There's seven billion plus people on the planet and there's a few people who don't see us and we focus on those people as opposed to the people who go. He's thank God for showing up.

Hey Hey guys Kathy Heller. Welcome back to another episode of. Don't keep your day job. I'm so excited you're here today because you're at least this year that's right. She is such a deep beautiful soul. You know her she plays Lisa Simpson on the simpsons. And she's done so many other incredible things I'm GonNa get to that in one second you'll be so glad that you showed up for today's episode one of my very favorite humans I've ever met and she's here before we dive into that. I just wanted to share something with you because we're still in January still the beginning of the year ear. I wanted to share something with you every single year on New Year's Eve I do this with my friends. We get together and we write down the year and we finish the sentence concerns starting with whatever year it is say twenty twenty was the most incredible year because we finish that sentence. As if we're saying it a year from now and I'm curious what you're gonNA write down love for you to do that and and right in your phone or write it with a pen and paper as if you're looking back next it's January on this year. Why would it what happened this year because you're looking ahead of this beautiful ground of potential and I said this before four but the difference between successful people in people who want success is that successful people? They have a lens through which they're looking at the world and they see possibility. Everywhere you're right you ever have that moment where you're walking with someone on a beautiful street and someone's complaining about the gum on the bottom of their shoe and you're going to look at the sky right. I want you to think about what you want for this year. And what. You'RE GONNA do to make sure that that happens at the end of the day. You guys from zero to seven. We were all in this like data state and everyone gets brainwashed. And we all get brainwashed brainwashed by the people around US still not by James Clear said who you spend time with matters more than anything else but at the end of the day fortune favors the brave Steve in. I've met people who have brilliant ideas and I've met people with mediocre ideas but it's always execution that wins right if it's a a mediocre idea with that person is really going for it and they're taking lots of at bats and they're taking action. They're gonNA win over the person who has a beautiful idea collecting dust in order for you to take action. What Angela Duckworth each us when she was here she said the thing that we need most is grit and the thing that actually ensures grit is is optimism? So I hope that listening to this podcast is starting to rewire some of those beliefs because beliefs are the things that dictate how much action we take. And then our actions decide. The results of our life in all really is powered by that super charger. which is what those beliefs are telling? Can you every single day and I believe in you and I believe I've three little girls. Were watching Moana the other day. And let's just give it up for characters that are female who are in these movies now as opposed to princesses who were waiting for a guy to come and save them. I'm just so happy that I have three little kids. And by the way Yardley Really Smith is here and I think Lisa Simpson is definitely the hero of that whole family so same point but with Moana right my middle daughter Loves Moana and I think about about that story and how that's all of us. That's that's our story to write like. She's been told her whole life Moana. Don't go out there. You won't make it. People have tried hide. You're GONNA get hurt. You'RE GONNA get killed you stay on this island and we all are being told that there's a ceiling and yet the horizon is calling. The Sky is calling in you know it and so in order for you to go and take that action. What has to happen? You need new glasses and maybe some new strategy and so. Hopefully the show is doing that for you. That's why hi I'm here because I believe that if you're here you came here for a reason and we need you said in last week's episode so that's why I wrote on my instagram a couple of days ago twenty twenty s very personal.

Start to slip a little while. We're about to meet a tiny character. WHO believes in herself? Big Time even when others don't I'm Rebecca Sheer and welcome to circle round. We're storytime happens all all the time today. Our story is called the fire on the other side of the world versions of this tale. Come from the Cherokee people native Americans who originally lived in the southeastern woodland's of the United States. Some really great people came together to bring you our adaptation of this folk tale including including Yardley Smith. Yardley is the voice of Lisa Simpson on the Fox animated comedy the Simpsons now in its thirty first season so circle rammed everyone for the fire on the other side of the world Long ago the world was a cold dark place there was no sun no stars no light or fire whatsoever back. In those early times animals ruled the earth and the poor creatures were always stumbling around round unable to see where they were going in the chilly inky blackness one day or was it night the chief of the animals Raven then glided down from the sky and made an announcement mind friends. Your not going in to believe but I found it. The animals stared at Raven or tried to stare at Raven because they were surrounded by darkness and couldn't really tell what they were looking at. The first to speak was possum. That's Great Ravin. But what are you talking about. What have you sal owned? Raven blinked her round black eyes and smiled. What Tabai Oh you know just little something called light light and he the animals gasped buzzard fluttered his long broad wings? All surely. You're joking Raven. Everyone knows the world is dark as a dungeon cold as one too. I know but it doesn't have tippy that way not anymore. You see today. I flew way way up in the sky higher higher than I've ever flown before and when I did I saw something strange on the other side of the world route hot and bright story. It's called old fire. Yes and as I su- down toward that fire you've got so hot and sow bright had to turn around. Maybe one of you can go to the other side of the world and bring back some fire. Why what do you say? The animals were quiet for a moment. Just then a small voice piped up nick but the voice was so small nobody heard it. Oh come on folks surely one alone of you can try again. The small voice cried out. I said but again nobody heard Tau all right if no one will volunteer themselves. Pick someone possum your your a clever fellow. Can you bring us fire from the other side of the world. Possum wiggled his pointy snout. Well I suppose I could give it a go. That's the spirit. So possum took a deep breath and waddled his way to the other side of the world What did he see when he got there? A blazing ball of red and orange and yellow FAA The roaring crackling flames were so hot. possum began to worry about how he would transport any of them back home. What do what do I know how Graham one of the flames and carry it in my furry bushy tailed now? Now if you've ever seen a you know their tails aren't free or bushy at all right. They're skinny but back. When our story takes place possums tale was covered with thick fluffy for thick fluffy for that was the moment he took some fire into it? Slowly getting Sizzled didn't notice by the time he returned to the other side of the world. Folks the fire he had tucked into into his tail. Had gone out possum. Where's the fire her? What's that smell? Possum reached back and and grabbed his tail. That's when he realized the fire was gone and his tail was no longer fluffy or bushy. It was bare and pink think the smell buzzard was talking about was burnt for Raven side. Well thanks taking a crack at it possum. Anyone else want to try and capture some fire me me me me me. There was that tiny voice again. How but just as before? No takers curse really. Nobody heard it. Fine I'll choose someone else buzzard. What about you you can fly far and fast? Will you bring back. Fire you from the other side of the world. Buzzard snapped his hooked beak oil. I suppose I could give it a shot at a boy. So Buzzard flapped his wings and soared to the other side of the world. This fires the World War I bring home I know I'll snatch the flames and stashed inside the long lovely feathers on my ahead now. If you've ever seen buzzard you know their heads don't how long lovely feathers on top right in fact they're bald dark heads heads. Don't have any feathers at all. But back when our story takes place buzzards head was covered with a thick glossy tuft of plumage. A thick glossy tuft of plumage that the moment he stuffed into it was getting scorched but buzzard didn't notice by the time he returned to the other side of the world fire on his head had gone out. What what did you do with the fire? And why do I smell something weird buzzards stretched out a wing and tapped his head. That's when he realized as to the fire was gone and it had singed off all of his lung lovely feathers now his dark head was completely bald. Raven shrugged shrugged well buzzard. Thanks for giving it a whirl I hate to say it folks but but maybe we should just give up yet again now the small voice chirped out and yet again ravens leads right. We should give up. Nobody heard it. I mean look. We've done what we can right. It's obvious that this fire is just too hot for any of us to possibly crying out out. Loud Raven cooked her head. I'm sorry dude somebody say something. Somebody said something I've been saying all along I've been saying that I'll go and bring back. The fire. Raven realized to the tiny voice was coming from somewhere close to the ground. She stooped down as far as she could until her beak got caught in something. Stringing ooh sticky. That's when Raven realized exactly whose voice she'd been hearing but this teeny tiny Chinese critter couldn't bring back fire from the other side of the world. Could she uh which animal do you think ray then finally hurt. We'll find out who it is after a quick break.

"That's like a major accomplishment and i feel like that's something that you're saying that this is you're. You're proud of it and you embrace it. When did that evolve to. This is something i'm not fulfilling my dream to know this is something that is something. I should really be proud of them. I think probably about fifteen years ago <hes> yeah. I think i at least so around the time of your one person show yes. I think you know when i realized you know i so i did the one woman show it did not give me any work the way i thought that it should like i created created that show it was a really interesting and grueling and phenomenal creative endeavor and i also had a very specific specific plan for it. That plan didn't work out and so for a number of years in my head. It was a failure to at least help. You understand more of yourself. Perhaps but that was an interesting to me didn't even matter if didn't matter to me because that wasn't the goal uh-huh goal was trapped in that even though you were telling everyone in the audience yes this is. This is my burden. I can't do it and even with that. I couldn't couldn't even take medicine. I'm like and again. I'm like dog be like me something at nine very good student a little thick back. Yes i mean it was really it was really tough and people ask me you know. Would you ever do it again and the answer is no. I certainly wouldn't do it like that and then after that actually i think after that i've fired my agent that i'd had for twenty two years and i couldn't couldn't get an agent because i wasn't willing to give up simpson's money to somebody new who hadn't actually done anything thing yet and they were all like oh screw you so i was like all right. We'll screw you and so then sort of noodled around for a while while and i started i decided i would take a writing class from the woman who lived in my neighborhood and she taught a class in the evenings and i went and i ended up writing a novel out of that and it started as easel lenience about who's eleven years old who had this really cockeyed very funny view of the world and i strongly together and it became this book called law rely which harpercollins published changed in two thousand and nine and it was beautifully reviewed book and it was not a commercial success because the publishing game is a racket and extraordinarily hard but but this make you happy it was at least the book i really wanted to write and at the end of the day even though it wasn't a commercial success it is a book that i feel like i'm really glad my name is on and so allowed yourself to be happy yes yes and so that's the whole journey probably took about three years where i didn't have an agent gen and the beauty of that whole sort of little daniel mall was that i realized that i could <hes> mike creativity wasn't just about show business that i could. Perhaps do other things and that was really important for me because as i think i felt like i didn't have any skills. Really you know i didn't have education. I was like oh shit. Oh fuck what no. What am. I gonna do all along the way did you allow yourself to have ownership of lisa simpson as a character which was known globally in like incredibly iconic. Yes did come to my senses and i do think that actually that transformation took place privately long before it took place publicly you know i've i grew up in a household asshole where we don't toot our own horn a pretty quite formal upbringing and so you you know praise i would say was more implied than it was sort of lavished upon us. Oh i just i wasn't in the practice of sort of blowing lone horn and so i if if there were victories i kept in close and then on just even the the practical side of things to how did you keep a project that you've been working on for more more than thirty years fresh..

"Of us won that year it was juried award which meant that more than one person could win. Miami sat in the closet for nine years ruined because that the following week i went to the televised emmys because because the voiceover emmy still to this day is given to what they call the creative arts awards and that is the non televised emmys and it happens at this point it happens a week before for the show like a quick montage during yeah and so when i went down the red carpet at the televised awards nobody asked me what it was like to win an emmy the the week before because of course nobody but he knew and so in my you know little mind i was like oh i guess miami doesn't matter because nobody asked me about it so i stuck it in the closet for nine years so you would actually accomplish if something really cool and you're like i it doesn't matter because my the value of that was predicated on somebody else recognizing using what the value of that was and so you know it's such a you know when i step outside of me and i look at that younger yardley and i think that it's a heartbreaking story that you would not be able to enjoy that and that it took you so long and as i only tell that story here's a cautionary tale not for anybody to feel sorry for me but as if there's anybody out there who's even thinking that they would go down that road. Please please please don't because because you'll miss much. I just feel like when you attach to a very specific rigid idea of what you think. Your success should look like you will get the short end of your own stick and you can still maintain that ambition absolutely appreciating appreciating what you've got it does not in any way shape or form infringe on your ambition or your ability to set the bar higher and yet higher and yet higher in in touch the bar swing from the bar for god's sake like oh my god you. Can you know continue to raise the limit. It is but really such such a cliche but try to enjoy the journey along the way because it's kind of all you have right and i remember somebody asked me an interview a year ago or so and i was embarrassed actually that they said this where they said. I know you used to not really appreciate lisa. Simpson used to sort of discount a little bit to your point a few minutes ago about but the simpsons this was blowing up. Didn't you appreciate that and and i think because i'd always been teased for how funny and weird in nicely my voices and the fact that voice over red never been on my radar is part of how i was going to achieve my world domination and my success that i really i didn't give it the gravity and the weight and the honor that it deserved for a great many years right because i was like but no no no no you don't understand it wasn't on the you know. It was the last year a urine any and you might want to walk that back so you know look. I'm a slow learner but god damn it. Finally i get it yeah well. I remember in the one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. When there was a strike among voice actors fox was even and threatening to replace they did threaten to replace us was that kind of a recognition for this is something i could be proud of. I can stand up for myself here for the work that i'm putting out. I don't know that i married those two things together at that time. I actually don't remember the moment where i realized this is something valuable ice..

"There wasn't a whole lot of promise it wasn't like you know and then we hit so big egg and then it was the turn around was immediate. The show business community was all of a sudden like oh my god we knew all along and i was like they always do like in aspect yeah and they have no shame about it sort of extraordinary and fantastic about that if you can find humor in it so was your you're dedicating more and more time to the series as opposed to other jobs that you were working. It was still we we would go in to you know. Recording the simpsons was one day a week and i was still edition a lot for on camera stuff my on and camera career was still really robust. I was still doing movies and doing television. At the time that the simpsons spun off into half hour i got a series called herman's head which <hes> hankers area was also on who does apu and chief wiggham and a snake and a a whole bunch of brilliant. He's so so funny you know. I thought oh my god. It doesn't get any better than this and then when both shows were airing. I was on the fox network on the same night on two different shows an hour part and so i was like i'm living the dream dude it does i mean in seriously and then her head got cancelled after three seasons and my character had actually been quite popular what we call in show business a breakout character sure and i thought this is really good. I'll for sure get another series and i didn't and then herman's had cancelled like i said i still had the simpsons and then things things started to slow down on camera and i actually say in retrospect..

"Now you said earlier that when you were twenty one, you were very much on the rise and by the time you were twenty five, you'd reach pretty much the pinnacle of what you thought you would be locally in San Francisco. That means you must have started when you were sixteen seventeen eighteen in say, how do you get into clubs? If you're underage in bars, they would let me into to perform during the band's break, right? Yeah. In San Jose, California, where they were. Oh, comedy clubs at the time and people just ate it up with? No, no, they were at the bar. The the ban had taken a break. So this was a chance for the guys to by women drink in the women to have a drink bought for them because that's the way things were folks. In in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight and or earlier. And then I was I said, you know, I'll go on and do perform during the break and for free just to get some states time. So while the male and female counterparts where enjoying each other's company at the bar when the band took a break, there was a guy behind them on stage doing Colombo oh my God, they didn't care. So I I think the first one hundred eleven shows I perform to the back of people's heads and I still killed in silence thought this is my calling. Oh yeah, because I turned around. They had heard something that interests them like, yeah, isn't here. We are all these years later. And all you can do is hear me. But yeah, it was. It was it was undeniable calling. There was no turning back and and a lovely question. Thank you. And now it's time for Kevin's pop quiz between five and fifteen points possible for each of the three questions. Once the final score is tabulated it will be posted on our website along with the current standing of the top one hundred. Are you ready? Wait. Why? Why does I five and fifteen?

With great insights and almost field reporting in the sense that wherever these stories took place, there's a sense of that in each one of the house. We're really so pleased and proud of it. We, as you said, I mean, you usually, let's do this thing and you and if you, I will say, if you proceed with passionate integrity, success will follow did and it has and we're enormously grateful. Well, congratulations. Thank you very, very exciting and happy anniversary on the one year and two seasons. Thank you, sit there and comfortably. If you wouldn't mind while I wrap things up for folks at home Devon, our our producer o- a there are two questions I forgot to get to in this has become a tradition on the show. The first one is asked Kevin, I feel like we kind of covered it. That's where the guests gets to ask me anything. I think we can blow past that one. So it's now it's time for question. Oh boy. I want to know when you were growing up, when did you know you wanted to be in show business? And did you come from a family that encouraged that, or were they hoping that you were going to get a real job. It started to early for there to be discussions of real job. I was. I signed my first autograph when I was six, not because I should have. Nor did I know how to write. I had to print my name who who got it. So my thirties near this is a collector's item and somebody could sell it on EBay and buy a house while there are probably fifteen women who at the time were thirteen year old girls who were like myself and my thirteen year old cousin Terry Zuqar who had taken me to see the Dave Clark five perform live at the circle star theater in San Carlos California, Sonny and Cher with the opening act with the Vang's in the vast, just to give an idea of how old of a story this is. So I was sick. She dragged me the show because I'd memorize Dave Clark five's first album and sang it around the house. And so while we stood at the side stage door, waiting for the day Clark, five to come out to get onto graphs, they were stairs leading up to a little platform where they side stage door was and after waiting for an half hour forty, five minutes probably an hour. My thirteen year old, then cousin. Thirteen year olds, still cousin. Terry's ochre said, Kevin, you, you know their songs get up there and sing one of their songs. And I think she finished the sentence before those a little puff of smoke where I was standing and then follow me up the stairs as I raced up and began, sing catches if he can. Ooh. And so these poor thirteen year old girls came to get someone's autograph. They realize the Dave Clark five were not coming out. They had their pens and pads waiting, and so they thrust them towards the six year old who then scrawled out in print his name and so that was the birth of, hey, look at me. And then I'd say by ten years old, I I was obsessed with stand up, comedians on television and and then start to write your own stuff. Then no, I lip sync comedy albums that help you learn learn timing, of course, without realizing it right. I didn't even know his lip synching didn't know. That was a thing I was just playing and I was caught. Stand in front of the stereo. Hi fi, the seven foot white piece furniture, yes. Compare that to the iphone. And. Or the Nanno certainly. And so yeah, so it was very early and then it wasn't courage because it was just a cute kid being silly and funny, and then class clown in high school, and then the the seeds were sown, and my dad was kind of oblivious and thought, you know, fine, whatever, right. And my mom was crazy. Happy that this was happening. Fabulous. Yeah. And you only child to a brother, two years older and no show business anywhere near the family really prior me either since same. Yeah..

"And sometimes the nicest way they can put it as well. We're not saying you're nobody where saying somebody when he. Yeah, I, I remember hearing from, you know, the agent if so, and so passes you're on the short. I m I. I know why so. And so. Why. The story by the way that you told about the usual suspects and how the guy said the director said, I want you, but I'm just gonna read these two other actors because you know. Agents, and then you your of away and went, oh, wait a minute. I could get bucked out of this process and comes in and yet blows them away. I am not going to be on the hook anymore. So you went back and read for smart. I was in the offer only. And which is a term agents tell you exists. Yeah. I never experienced risen to a point where we're for not gonna let you go in and on.

I mean, I was the only person in that giant casts at the audience, sort of got to discover and show business to and show business decided you're not gonna get offers. And that's why I ended up doing forty movies in the nineties. Again, six of them quite good. A girl who couldn't say, no, let's. But by the way you come from stand up comedy when someone offers you a gig, the answer's always. Yes because you need states time to get better. Right. So when the offers started coming in, I still had the mentality of a comedian, which was you're saying, I can do this. You'd like me to do this when when where do we? Where do we go? How does that start? But I also, you know, I there there were certainly films that I ultimately said no to because I I learned, oh, you don't have to do everything you idiot, right? But so in nineteen ninety four when I met with Bryan singer, yes. And he said, I want you to do this. I have, but I have two other actors at I promised. I would see. And yeah, the, you know, the those moments come along and and that's why I was sort of celebrating the organic way that your podcasts mall town dick sort of grew from a conversation, but it's a tremendous amount of work tremendous. Yeah, we are very, we have to editors Zubieta is if he does the first pass the shaping passed and we have she passes it to the editors and they pass it to me in Iowa's referred to myself as the flea comb. I'm the fine tooth comb that sort of irons out the last of of the sort of in. It's more than ons and things like that. It's really sometimes such sentence structure and we never changed the story in our editing. The story is always exactly as they told it, but they because our detectives aren't professional storytellers sometimes they'll say, oh, I forgot to tell you something really important that should go at the beginning in order for the story to flow. And so that's why we're so edit heavy. But we also want to get to sound like this American life. So, oh God. Amount of work Talafar. A high? Yeah. When you're dropping in a real soundbites from nine one one phone calls and the like, then it becomes a highly produced show and it's a tremendous amount of work, and it also becomes careful what you wish. Yes, yes, we're going to do this. It's going to be fun. Now. It's a fulltime job and we still treat it like a part time job because everybody's still doing other things. You know, then my business partner has jokes that I have nine jobs. Yeah, because I actually, I actually have the Simpsons still job and small town decks could be my other fulltime job. And then we have our production involvement company which is a whole other fulltime job. Oh yeah. So. The so I'm not Jamie. I've been to a couple table reads of the Simpsons and I noticed that there's, there's always at least one or two cast members that Iran speaker from. But in terms of doing the job, you you guys, did you ever gather? We still do. For recording? Yeah. Yeah, we do it all together. Like an old radio play. You do? Yeah. Because Hank lives in New York. He never records with us. Obviously..

"You've got this, you're doing it, right? Let's try some variations. Do eleven percent more to see what that feels like seventy percent less well, yeah. So. Usually what would happen is I would say that they would laugh. I would walk away and they would do whatever they wanted to interest, whatever felt they wanted to try next. And I kinda stole that from. Close Martin Scorsese. So I know, yeah, I know. I know I had a couple of scenes in casino, but I one of them is just me and Sir, Robert deniro sitting at this four top table inside the casino. Well, the most fascinating part was within the composition of score says he's frame of the shot. It was like there was a graph over in every square inch of the graph was perfection. The composition was very, very specific and perfection, but within that composition, the two actors were free to do whatever they want it. So the direction from him after each take would be, what do you think is less angry, more angry? What do you want to do? And that's really what it was the. So the idea is to have a great script. Be graded casting so that you know, you've got great actors who can do. What they do, right. And I, I do want their interpretation. So now this this script, I'm I wrote an allegedly directing in January is a twisting turning whodunnit kind of thriller, and it's it's a contemporary set, but very sort of stylistic in new are way. And there are very specific rhythms that I that have been in my head because I wrote this thing sixteen years ago and it's been finance and fallen apart four times. So I actually don't believe it's going to happen until I'm at the premier. Sure. Even though it's it's in print today. But we we were able to cast our lead actress. It's called waiting for Helen. We cast our Helen on a Armas brilliant Cuban-born actress. If you saw blade one or twenty forty nine. She's the hologram love interest, Ryan Gosling. She's a breathtaking talent and. So waiting for and we we, we have our Helen, and so that what moves everything forward and to no, no, I when I wrote it there, there's a detective sits down at the counter of a diner and tells the story to someone a couple stools over, and then we go into that story, the person on the stool, a couple stills over. Yes, yes, we can, but I'm going to need seventeen a giant movie stars to say, no, I, according to my finance here. We're, we're doing that wonderful thing called playing the name game because she's so spectacular. Now I have the freedom of the financier saying, well, let's keep swinging right for the fences. But when I wrote it that character on the stool like you and your co host of small town Dicks was the audience asking the questions. So the detective telling the story and the guy in the stool or woman on the stills would ask way way way, why didn't blank? Why didn't she say? And then you go back in the story counting, let it great defy. So I wrote it as kind of an every man, right? Who I've been portraying all these years. Sixteen years ago, it sounded well, I, I've been with giant movie stars and they drive the financing of the movie. I'll be the pot sitting on the stool listening to the story and asking questions and then that on the last movie late bloomer, I I, there was a similar role that the producers wanted me to do, and I cast j. k. Simmons within six months of him when winning the kademi and all the other words, that one is a available to one that year and I realized, oh, we can raise the level of everything. If I, if I hire a character actor like me, but wildly more famous. So that's GM process of our town. I feel like while we both have our really devoted fans for which we're both extremely grateful are actual business show. Business never is never shy about letting you know that you're nobody reminds you. Yes, constantly. Really? Yeah..

"Trailer right to during lunch on that day so that I could stay in this place of virtual grief for fourteen hours. Yeah, and you. I finally, I've, I've known James, oh books for a long time, but I we hadn't worked together in any capacity until I finally did some voices on an episode of the Simpsons. Yes. And did he directed you directed the episode? So there was a director already. They're the right one of the writers was there in this recording space and. When he when we, we'd all been niceties and Hello, how are use for a good ten fifteen minutes. And then Jim walked in and I could tell by the look on the face of the woman who was there to direct the episode that this was a surprise to everyone and then and then that's what I learned that he knows what he wants, and we're going to keep going till he gets that yours it and gets it. And while every director is kind of like that. You don't know really have the luxury of time to get any anyone's idea of perfection. You'll hear an actor actress, say, is there any way I could get another one because they're rarely pleased. So someone has to decide what perfect is right, and it does fall on the director to be that leader. And so I don't envy your fourteen hours of crying. It was you get to the point where you know how in your kid, you say word over and over and over again, and then it stops losing its meaning. I will say doing the exact same scene which was only about two pages if that may page and a half that many times you just it doesn't. And then you just feel I do remember feeling kind of broken inside like, am I just really bad because you're not getting what you need, right? You go to that place? Yeah, because I will give you everything I have, but at a. Certain point, I will lose my way not have any sense of whether or not I'm nailing. It sometimes says a writer, I feel there's a musical rhythm to, yes, the dialogue. And unless those notes are played musically sound and perfect, it doesn't sound right. It doesn't feel right. And so I did relate to what what pain I was causing Jim when I couldn't hit those notes correctly, feel like he's such a, he really is genius. And one of the few of that word applies. I agree. Oh, yeah. But he also I, my experience of him is that he sometimes his his brain goes so fast. It can be hard to his mouth doesn't always catch up. So you get half thoughts sometimes you're right, so, and he's obviously not aware of it because he's already moved onto the next nine things. That's right. And it has to be. Really frustrating for him and step stating for us. There is a certain level of communication that's helpful date between a director and I'm actually not above asking somebody if especially on the Simpsons or something. Do I want to hear the music you hear in your head? So me a line reading and then 'cause no, no harm, no foul. It'll pass through my filter and then it'll come out the way I do it, but now at least I could hear the rhythm and the music that you have and that will really help me. I don't care about that, like, yeah, people are like, how dare you give me a long-running. Fuck off. Stop my thing. I'm alleged -ly directing a film in January. You came out in the so-called trades today. Yes. Well, sure, but, but it's it's the third film ivdr first of all was a documentary just talking heads. So there is no script. The second one was someone else's script that I may or may not have done. Six re writes on, but still it was someone else's work. So there wasn't as specific as a as those musical notes that I needed to hear. So a lot, my my favorite kind of direction to give on that movie. The late bloomer still available on Netflix was to go up to the actor actress after taking say, I was great, really. I mean, let me see what it feels like a seventeen percent less and walk away and then the variably they would laugh depending on what the number one direction Kevin. Well, what I was trying to communicate was you've obviously was able to articulate it at some point..

"So I only know the city from visiting and being accused it, it's, I think it was a great mix of being a city and not as overwhelming as New York. My grandparents and my mother, both my parents were born and raised in New York in Manhattan. And so we would go there all the time to see my mother's parents. And so I was quite familiar with it and DC was always regarded as the sort of the ugly suburb. You shouldn't really be the nation's capital, but I don't know how you got that title, but God damn. And now I actually think it's quite different. I think it's a quite a bit more hardened more hardened, but I used to take three city buses to school. Right? It was just a different time and I, there's a neighborhood full of kids and we went there because my father applied to the New York Times the Chicago trip. Byun San Francisco Chronicle and the Washington Post and the New York Times said, no, my mother didn't want to move out west and she didn't wanna live in Illinois. So DC was where we ended up and we moved there when I was about three. I think prior to that retweeting, Europe and DC we lived in New York with my mother's parents. Well, my father took his time apparently looking for a job. Do you have a favorite city now? As a person who's traveled the world. I, that's such a good, you know, I will say. I love. I love London. I, I love that. I, I really, I, I like New York. I guess the better answer is I've never found a place where I feel like I absolutely belong. And so when I know I don't want to. I don't wanna die in Los Angeles. I have a die. Why are you don't want to die here? Both sounds like you're saying both both and I like I've come to like LA. I've lived here a very, very long time and I do consider it my home city now and I have. A deep life here, you know, infrastructure is deep when I live in a beautiful home, but there's something I, I have a, I think it has more to do with my innate restlessness and less to do with the actual city itself. And so I've never found a city that made me feel like here it is, and that makes me sad. Whereas yours don't be set. Don't tell me what to do. More of a request? Well, I'm from San Francisco. We were almost we almost grew up together if your mom had wouldn't have minded moving out west indeed. I mean, I'm considerably older so I wouldn't have gone school together. Yeah. So being from San Francisco and San Jose. You know, it's in my DNA to Lowe's Los Angeles just from a share kind of a sports absolutely foundation. Well acquainted, yeah. Is ABC from them that part of world? Well, there you go. My cost and also San Francisco is a city. Yes, whereas Los Angeles as a collection of suburbs. You're right? Yeah. Even with the new after fifty years of threatening to have a downtown, they finally pulled it off. It's pretty spectacular is still not the feeling of a city because you still have pockets of downtown that you wouldn't wander into. But the arch Detrick arts district is fabulous, but then to get to the next place to say, LA live, maybe you'd want to Uber instead of it. Right hands only six blocks, but we're not walking out what does that. Yeah. So what was weird for me was as a stand up comedian, there was so much work in San Francisco. I didn't really do the road that much until. I was already at it, maybe ten years, but a member the first time I went to New York as a standup probably twenty five, twenty six years old. I started early, so by twenty twenty one, I was pretty far up the food chain in San Francisco. And then by twenty five, I'd sort of risen to the top of where I thought I would get and moved l. a. around that time. But I went to New York at one point and felt when I got there, there was that sense of who this is where I belong, and then I realized there were five million people on the sidewalk. Between the and where I needed to be and and there were everyone lived in an apartment..

"I found myself about a year ago on stage as a standup asking the question, do serial killers worry about carbs. Glenn serial killer also moved onto almond milk. Indeed. Fair question. I feel like somebody like Ted Bundy who prided himself on being a parent? Yes, that he'd probably worried about carbs. I think almond milk was a little after his time over. Sure. Yeah. Well, I got hooked. I think city confidential was the first, yes. Savannah was asleep town. People came and people with my God. That's so good. The general stores where they got a tuna fish sandwich. Most days, always peaceful. The neighbors looked out for each other. That is until July twenty nine th nineteen seventy eight. And then everything just winning. The shirts goes in the shitter most recently I was watching on the history channel. They're breaking the code of the zodiac killer finally, yes. And they actually it's and then they give their so they vet their findings with other super genius codebreakers this group of codebreakers who come from all different fields. What you know went from the NSA one from, I think it's USC school of encryption, all these things, and then they send their findings to the FBI. But when what's incredibly unsatisfying is you then don't find out what the. Fuck happened. Like the FBI is like, great. Well, this looks legit. We're actually going to look at it and that's it. So yes, and so they had to really strong suspects and this new research? Yes. And they what was brilliant was and made so much sense. So the, it's the z. three forty which is the long letter and three forty refers to three hundred and forty characters. And at first they thought this guy was military, but then they thought maybe not military, maybe just one who wanted to be in the military. Right? And if you're not a professional code writer, but you're a wanna be what are you gonna do you're going to do all kinds of things that are professional code writer like that's too easy. I'm not doing that. And that was how they broke the first half of the three forty and mistakes. Rookie mistakes. Yes, actually, we're letters thirteen of the letters in the alphabet represent those letters so l. is l. is k that sort of thing. And then the second half. Of the letter they say is gibberish and or he's changed up his cryptography. I mean, I was so I love that stuff. Just fascinated by. Yeah. Golden State killer. I mean, oh my God. Like, who are you and you live with your you live with family when they catch you and your gardening, and you have Facebook, right. I mean, what? That's one of the things I enjoy much about small town Dick's your podcast is I've never been on Facebook. I know it's all right. How often the detectives are now using face which means the criminals are very comfortable having a a life on Facebook. It's astonishing to me and they reveal so much beyond breadcrumbs that were left bond. You idiots love which. Dave and Dan? Yes. What what? I can't remember which of them this gave does the Facebook staying, maybe they've both come in and how we catch the dumb one. Yes, I Dan, I think probably set that. Yeah, that's what I think. Yeah. And so after years of fascination? Yeah. Now, friends files on Netflix with no commercial breaks, which is great only because friends files was one of those shows. If you watch it on commercial television in a half hour, there's probably sixteen minutes of content and fourteen minutes then Ruutel for it all. All. So even though the episodes are only sixteen minutes long on forensic files to get the dump all I want. How does it then become an idea to do a podcast? I just came out of a tipsy conversation which I've now learned often, podcasts do for like a little tipsy like wages aren't podcast thing. You know. So I was vacationing with Zubi and her now husband and and Dan..

And then in parentheses, this person writes, I know I know go fuck myself out of Prentiss. Thank you sir. For providing insightful thoughtful provoking shows. I recommend them to all my friends, and the majority of them are only slightly deeper than a puddle and claim to not get the humor. So I quit talking to them.

"A little bit now i can only imagine you've been asked a lot of these questions a million times so you have every right to pass or deflect it to something rather talk about but i always try to pride myself in finding questions that are different in some way but i don't know about this line it is a tough one just all been ass i can imagine and how many years is it now it's just started recording season thirty good lower no years we literally have writers who grew up watching the show who thought might dream job will be to ride on the simpsons but they won't still be on by the time i'm old enough and like oh yes do you have any that were born after it debuted yeah i believe so yes i mean there are people in that room who work on the show who have no recollection of a world without simpson that's extrordinary zand i mean thirty years thirty two relief you count the tracey ullman show that's old enough to have been born when the simpsons started or even slightly after a now to have your own children who are walking and talking and watching the simpsons that's that's bananas it is an institution like saturday night live where a long involved would have been raised on it completely absolutely yeah god so you if this is true additionally originally read for the role of bart that's true and nancy cartwright read for lisa is that right yes interesting i think it was never well two things happened so i did a play here in los angeles at the fountain theatre called living on salvation street that was directed by dorothy lyman who used to be on mama's family do you remember mama in fact i see that this kiki she was a juvenile delinquent i did i three episodes and because of doing that tv show when this play came around dorothy lyman cast me as the lead and i played this girl named wilma who wanted to join the army and saying l was presley songs so nothing likely simpson and about i would say like seventeen people saw that play and one of those people are year later was casting the simpsons and she says that she when the role of lisa simpson came up she said i know exactly who should play lisa simpson and it was me it wasn't nancy so the fact that i did read for bart and nancy read for lisa i think it was more of a well let's they always have women do the voices of young boys because their voices don't change obviously right so i don't think it was so specific as we're just gonna throw a lot of spaghetti at the wall and whoever is better for one and then for another and then of course i'm sure they had editions with tons of other people that's who we will cast but i did read for bar but i don't even think it lasted a whole scene interesting yeah 'cause i just sound so much like a girl always and over the years do you struggle to keep it fresh for yourself do you find that the voice of all because i look back at the tracey ullman versions in the early seasons especially with homer i mean it's it's started with oh yeah okay a lot of people think actually that whoever did home or on the tracey ullman show it was then a different actor who did it when we went to half hour but it's the same as dan castellaneta and dan orig when we drew in the bumpers as we call them on the tracey ullman show agree told the whole story in one minute right three twenty seconds segments something to that effect before the commercial break and dan fashioned homers voice after walter matthau and when we went to half hour he couldn't sustain it technically like vocally he couldn't sustain it so he had to alter it and that's why homer sounds so different yeah and i think when i first started doing lisa simpson i really didn't do anything i mean i sound a sound i i think probably now about now i probably like him about fourteen but back then i think i probably started let goes eleven
