"Me and i'll tell you i was on. Tv pretty regularly. Until the moment. I said that i would support the president. Twenty nineteen and then poof. All of the invitations when way except to his credit bill maher on hbo but all the tv news networks with the exception of fox nope every single one of them All the invitations went away. The moment i said i would support donald trump. And you know on the left people's well of course because we can't have you inducing people to to line up with the kkk. Don lemon can get away with. He says on cnn and smile the whole time knowing what he's doing and they'll let him get away with it at cnn. He can double down and believe it and seen and we'll talk to him. Which means cnn really is going the way of msnbc and is a reliable Sinner the road news network. Not that it has been a while but it's claimed to. It's going to have to give up that claim now and it's amazing how they still obsessed about fox news and ignore what is being said on their own network many of them by the way. I sure that the guys at cnn who says about fox agree with don lemon and it becomes an affirmation loop in you. Pat him on the back mean look at how the leftist matthew mcconaughey.

"You guys wanna okay. Okay right yes. Ninety seven i think Republicans voted two thirds against two thirds of that of that that happening. And it's interesting too because you wanted the expediency that would have felt right like they're like oh they're not. There's no stalling on this. Like they understand the problem and they're addressing it. But now it's like you're saying it's going to be like all right fine if we don't impeach him you promise to not be so racist or outwardly. Violent anymore and then that's sort of like the deal. I feel as being worked out right now. You know what i mean. Not hey we all recognize that this is bad for either side right because even if you as a thought experiment for anyone but just like at a certain point. You don't want the norm to be people. Violence is going to just come to your doorstep and change your vote on something because that's essentially the same mechanisms are there for any corrupt government. I mean there. I mean not to say that. This place isn't because that's happening through money but now using violence as a tool to sort of change legislation entering entering that as like becoming a normal part is something. I think no one wants. And then we've seen that with just the reaction of a lot of the conservatives even in the house were like This was fucking like. It's one thing when people stand outside in are fine and not mason each other and trying to break glass and kill people but it's come too far and now what is that recalibration go to look like because if it's not actually addressing the problem then we're you know we can expect for things to just only worsen. Yeah i mean. I i like the said. It's a gentlemen's agree. It's a gentlemen's agreement with nazis which never works out great. Yeah because of yeah. The line constantly keeps moving like what's acceptable of like. Oh no no no that time we all right. We're sorry we won't do it again. You know and then cut to a week later. Where's our it won't happen again i. It's yeah i it. It doesn't it doesn't ever stop once. The momentum already been built because we've allowed it to get to that point where like the you know the caused the called has been Trumpeted so many times. Like i don't wanna say it's the normal because hopefully it's not but it feels very much that like. They claim this as a success and they were already planning something for i. Think the the seventeenth or something like that something. I was reading seventeen hundred twenty. Seems like like all fifty states. Yeah people keep being like is this is this. The neville chamberlain is this person gonna be the neville chamberlain. I feel like people might look back and be like the entire democratic apparatus like democratic party apparatus and the mainstream media were all kind of neville chamberlain in it up during during this whole period And also like even the description like it's almost like the reporting is like we know as if we know everything right now trying to analyze it through that. But i find myself every day being like this is way more is a lot more complex than simply him screaming and going there because like the layers of the kinds of people who were there for their own reasons plus like Footage of people in the crowd who are clearly agitating and like trying to sort of direct the anger in a way that they needed a to. It's like we're gonna learn so much more. It's hard to fully even begin to process what i mean like. It's hard to know what the remedy is until we were actually aware of what the entire circumstances surrounding this and how like how far we have to go to addressing campaign finance and dark money and We're you know who is who works for who and what their ideologies are etc. Well i mean. I think the remedy is just holding These social media companies accountable or at least holding them to like the users agreement that they've that they've made all of us sign that they've kind of like crackdown on leftists unfairly. Like like how many. You're never the the youtube the the right has hacked or like engineered their videos in such a way. That you're never more than four or five clicks away from from like an entry point on youtube. The you're never far. You know that far on social media that you're never that far on on different platforms like they've they've ingrained themselves in such a way like you know if you start with joe rogan. That will lead you to shapiro or that will lead you to mcginnis or that will lead you to you know any other. Yeah i mean it's it's dangerous for children out there And to prove that point just look at matthew mcconaughey who is You know has it. Seems like the mind of a child has been led down the path to his book. Thanks jordan peterson in the back. His new book that he dropped and he was just on the jordan peterson. Podcast talking. About how influential. Jordan peterson was to him. Yeah all rat rattus kind of like what you were talking about in the kind of the topics with with captain america like. There's nothing. there's nothing that they won't co-opt to kind of fit their needs because there isn't there isn't a like the all of the things that they believe are horrific and so you have to mask them in bury the lead so with like captain america. Of course they're gonna co op him because like he won the us military like Plays a huge role in funding a lot of the the the movies that kind of glory nationalism right So like he's the kind of the perfect target for him but they also did that with like What was it the matrix in in coopting trans women's baby of like a trans analogy just using that to be shitty and and like you know the red pill and What else Trying to think what else they With fight club like come on trump palino's gay and his dad was murdered by clansman I didn't know that about his dad. Well yeah yeah. Yeah it's I think it's in his biography. I have several pellet books for when i was a teenager. Forgive me. I went through my face. I went through my door. The doors of literature. That's not fair to the doors. I guess or fans of the door anytime. i mentioned that the doors are like a phase. You go through in middle school. People get mad at me but that was just. That was my experience. I know there were some really good news in the doors is just you know the people who find jim morrison incredibly meaningful. Yeah it's it's usually the first time any of us are like experimenting with drugs right..

"Did this stuff track with her spending more time on the Internet? Do it. It's from the first episode of Rabbit Hole Element. How Tell me about this podcast. Like just put into context. What we just heard. You know, tell you I've been thinking a lot about the riots in the U. S. Last week on by all these reports of these people who were there who kind of really deeply believed seriously believe that there was fried in the U. S election and the Donald Trump had won it. On. Gimme really thought about Rabbit hole, you know, because it is a good place to impact some of this stuff, even though it came out last year. It's like this really absolutely produced podcast that deals with a very simple question, Which is what is Internet doing to us? And if you hear the show's evolution like it just takes this journey of this man who was starts off a bit depressed, just withdrew from university start spending a bit more time on YouTube. And I don't want to spoil where that journey goes. But I get really impacts the mechanism of how someone can go from just a few YouTube videos of seem pretty innocent to down the you know, down the rabbit hole of being fired being into the far right ideology and so the way that it traces that through all of these YouTube videos Then they really get his entire YouTube history and unpack it. It's just incredible. I think what's so interesting about that is when we see it When we see the result of that the end the end game of that you see mobs of people or or you hear about groups of people who think a certain way. It's very easy to forget that it starts with one individual. And I think what rather hold this so well is is really make it clear to us that how one how one person. Turns from You know how how one person's thinking evolves, I guess exactly like they all took the similar journeys on the Internet to end up in that that place and like, you know where you see that place physically in the real world is in a place like the capital right. So many of those people might have gone. Their journeys started on YouTube. And then that's how they ended up there. I just think that's a good, really powerful toe to understand it. So that's rabbit hole. I want to shift gears completely now with your next pick called armchair expert. This is an interview show hosted by the actor DAX, Shepard. And here's a little clip of DAX interviewing Matthew McConaughey. Hey, they're riffing on how the first take is always the best on camera. You and I could go back and say the same things. But take two always sucks compared to take. I don't believe myself. Take two. I buy it. No, I don't either, and I do it from the camera and I'll go. They know it's bullshit. Been acting right there. I was acting. I've always better the first time. That's why I have to improve because I just don't believe myself. I got to say something a little different. All right. I don't buy it. I mean, that's that's Dax, Shepard and Matthew McConaughey comparing acting notes. There are so many interview podcasts out there. What do you like about Dax? Shepard is an interviewer. Honestly, I find Dax is like is really charming. He's really relaxes. Really present is so funny. You might say that he's a television anger of America. Just saying Stop it, Helen mean Don't Just say forward to start up in some kind of comparison. That's right, right? Did it, But I think there's honestly there's like a magic Do when you get to hear Dax interviewing another famous person, because it's like these two very famous people, they get chatting and they start talking and Like part of the big pool is that like in so many interviews, famous people are like a little bit on guard and then interview has some kind of coax them into kind of laying down that guard. Not with Dax, like this kind of show would be like, Hey, we're both already famous. Let's just cut to the stuff that's interesting about our careers, and in that, I think there's a real alchemy. I'm so glad that you said that. Yeah, I think that there's sort of probably weird things that happen in everybody's job that you wouldn't know about unless you do that job, So it's very rewarding to hear actors like Like, pick out the intricacies that interviewers like you or me might even be too embarrassed as somebody about 100%. Yeah, your next pick his brain a browns dare to lead podcast. These are conversations as we might have gleaned from the title about leadership. She's talking to people from the corporate world from politics. Barack Obama was a recent guest. And here's a taste of Renee Brown in conversation with the author, Dr Sarah Lewis. They're talking about when what she discovered about doctor Dr Martin Luther King. Seeing the transcript of Martin Luther King Jr and seeing that he received his lowest grades in seminary and public speaking is that possible? So he received a C plus and an A C transcript. A basin bees in public speaking, and he got worse from one semester to the next. And then, of course, went on to lead the nation with the power has spoken truth. And as I look at those images of him on Washington mall with that expanse around him, I often think about what shifted in his own horizon. What sort of new possibilities he might have seen recognizing that that teacher did not understand his oratory gift effectively and labeled what was innovation as failure? Well, that's humbling. Yeah,.

"Yes up good i. That was my favorite read of the book. The audio read. You didn't about eight hours. I think i think the book rate is six and a half hours audible but it took eight out. People can take a four days long time. But i i guess because i lived the stories and wrote them. I knew the punchline was coming new the next care there was so fun doing all the voices and all nala intonations of people we have to because it's to hear your intents and to hear when things are light or would hear things have gravity or to you know is we're gonna be doing the emotional back on reading the book but to hear you perform it really is like spending you know six hours just hanging out with you and it does. It does feel like a hangout. At which think is harshly why the book is doing so well and also people are just fascinated by you as a creature. I think they it and it doesn't the storytelling in the aphorisms. And the kind of like you know southern country lawyer you know it it all just. It's almost like the holy fuck. I'm listening to matthew mcconaughey. Do a matthew mcconaughey character. It's fucking amazing. I love it. it's just fun. it's just fun to listen to it and the sort of the philosophical. Because i've noticed you've done. I know i was very fascinated by the fact that you've done some of the more philosophical podcast you could ryan holidays. Did russell brands. And you know. I would say this. One is on the cost of that that that kind of like or does it. All mean mankind of podcasts. You know but but but but the tone of it is is really your philosophical journey and about halfway through. I was like i think mcconnell as like a truth gifter. He's like he's trying to con the universe and then later in the book you go. Yeah i think. I'm like a gift or i don't know a my daughter or my just trying to. I'm like holy shit. You feel that way. I'm trying to work out the riddle. Like everybody else and trying to get away with what i can jonah. Pick out some things that that that that lasts trying to find some non rely on a world where it's hard to find those. It's it. I assure believe life game. We're all on the. We're all same rodeo. Trying to get our eight second and you know sometimes that means knowing your zone sometimes that means call an audible rivalry right at the time. Sometime that means sticking with the plan You know life sport so sometimes you do that griffin sometimes you gotta hustle and sometimes you gotta hustle and bustle sense of the word words and then as i say step and shit a lot allowed times along the way and you know how you feel about it after stepping in shit is really kind of one of the arts of living goes if you dwell and you know how bad your luck was. It doesn't do anything about the shit. She stepped in right. You still shit. You know what i mean. You have to get a stick and like scrap it out of the bottom of your shoe know no matter how many times you shouted. It's not the shit's just not gonna and and in you know and if you are the one that has to scrape the shit off of your shoe that you just stepped in. Will you can either him in hallway scraping off or you can giggle and go. Of course. I think while you're scraping off the same. I mean i do. I do kinda wonder how. Because i think.

"Even though david banner was trying to find a way to quell the raging beasts that dwelt within him ultimately david banner mcconnell. Hey we're both searching for inner peace. They were both just trying to find it wherever they could. You know mcconnell as green light means go means move onto means you you can go to the next level move forward banners. Green light was gamma radiation and turn them into the hawk Arrigo the super saddest theme song ever god that theme song. I gotta learn that on piano. The ninna i cried every week when that show was on. I think we're kind of journey was sad like that every week but definitely that sort of like the journey of trying to of going outward to find inward and find that inner peace and find that wholeness and he's very open about the whole journey and seems like he has become centered and found found peace. And so i really recommend the audio version of the book. I cannot say enough how much i enjoyed this conversation. He was just so fucking cool and nice and and open to talk about anything had such great information and so many great little nuggets of wisdom so for me. This was like the perfect form of the podcast. This podcast is firing all cylinders. Because someone came on. I knew who this person was very well. And i'm a admired their work and guess what they turned out to be read. We connected right away I learned a bunch of stuff and by the end. It wasn't like oh. I just had a guest on. It was like oh i had my friend matt on. We just sat and shot the shit for a while. And i think you'll feel that way with him too. So thank you to matthew mcconaughey. Hey for doing this podcast.

"Okay enough with the plugging. Let's get to this episode. Which i think this is really a fantastic episode to wrap up twenty twenty and i will say you know. I hope this year of podcasts has helped Distract you a help from another wise very stressful year. Help give you some positive takeaways Some fun things are like. I said just kinda zone out for an hour you know and sort of shut everything else off. I appreciate you appreciate that. You've listened to this podcast own. My gosh i mean. Even if you haven't been around. Since the beginning i appreciate that you listen to it at all. Maybe maybe you just discovered it this year. I don't know but we're going into our eleventh year. Which is a long time over a decade. oh my gosh anyway This is matthew mcconaughey this episode and he was just incredible like such a great dude to talk to and it's on the heels of his book release called green lights which you can either read in book form but i recommend the audio version because he reads the audio version. And so what. I find great about that especially with performances that you can really hear the intention behind the stories and especially because this is essentially autobiographical and i say essentially autobiographical. Because it is an autobiography but it's a philosophical journey so it's not just i was born and then this happened it it's really about. I was born in these things happen. And here is what. I extrapolated from that philosophically. How i kind of navigated these things In so it is. There are a ton of lessons. I read this. Listen to this book And it's great because it's like it just sounds like you're sitting down and hanging out with mcconnell. Hey for a few hours. And i took a lot of notes. There's just so many great life lessons and he's definitely a student of life and someone who is always strive to do better even through you know rocky times through times. We didn't know what he was going to do. And also you know. I wish i brought this up on the podcast. 'cause i'm curious to know how how he responds to this but he talks about in. He mentioned it a couple of times in the book that when he was growing up his favourite show was the incredible hulk. I also watched the seventies bill bixby incredible hulk which by the way is the most depressing superhero. Maybe one of the most depressing shit in the history of because it. It really was the sort of greek. Hero's journey of he was called david banner in the series. They called him david. Banner instead of bruce banner but his but at the same character because he basically is just the loneliest guy in the world. And it's just the greek hero's journey of him trying to find himself and get back home home home being himself. I guess his whole life but he's got this hulk situation that he's got to deal with and i find it interesting that when you give too much away but green lights is really mcconaghy's journey and oftentimes. When he would find himself in crisis he would hit the road in search of himself. Just go somewhere. You know david banner style you know. He would go talk to shaman and he'd go talk to different people and tried to get wisdom and understand. Go on these trips. For a long time. He lived like he had an airstream and he would just drive around the country. And just you know just inhabit. Move on and i wanted to ask him like. Do you think there was influenced by david. Banner at all from the incredible hulk who dead kind of had the same. And really you know..
Getting Relative With the Inevitable and Catching Greenlights with Matthew McConaughey
"Matthew mcconnahey on dose of leadership. I can't believe it what was show my friend good to be here. It's a great topic to talk about will never go out of style talking about this job. Yeah no can. I say i love the book i read it and i listened to it to different experiences and i'm glad i did both because the visual aspect of the book was i listened to it i because it is easier for me being on a plane and stuff but then i read it and i. It's like i got two different experiences. I got a lot out of it doing both ways. I he said that to you about a few bums. Somebody said to me. When i read it they they read it it with their own voice. Yeah in the hear me read it audio only for short hair my voice and hey heard laughed in places that they didn't laugh when they read it herbie point out certain things that maybe they'd skipped over and toast the reading same book but getting two different things out of it each. Yeah no it was just great. And i think it was. I don't know it was a great book. For the time i think for the year i mean it was profound a lot of ways in the sense and i thought well god this would be a good topic because there's so many areas of leadership and i don't know if you've ever looked at it that way but at least it's a big umbrella a lot of stuff you talk about in here and this show is about like how to kind of navigate through life and that's what the book is rate and i love the concept of the green lights but to me the i talk a lot about on the show and i used to come from the marine corps. The biggest thing i learned is like how to be a composed forcing a chaotic situation. And that's what your book was to me was like you seem to embrace this idea. That look man. It's never smooth. It's never a straight line it's jagged it's up and down and those red lights and the yellow lights that we come across. There's a that's the stuff that kind of shapes us and there's green light assets. I think is the term that you used that are inside of those things that resonates with me because i think life is about. You can lead a significant life if you can learn how to be composed force in a chaotic situation. And that's what i got out of your book. How does that resonate with you. I say i love that term to please remind me that i got to write it down now but i really like composed force in chaotic situation. Yeah i mean you know. I don't care what your i don't think it matters what someone's beliefs are whether they're a believer in another life after this or if they're sort of hey life's all about cruelty. We're just dying every day. That's all that's all fine or if you're an eternal optimist you know every day great. We've got another son rose for me. That wasn't guaranteed ever way. Jeter ever end of the spectrum anyone's from either way the more proactive the more constructive. The more the more healthy more fun choice is to go well by believe in that you know we're just dying off every day in the world's cruel and it sucks to be here that's fine shake hands that so now we might as well do it with pleasure in it with dignity. Is that bring that that that that line later in the book right. Say in those times where we feel like. It's all for nothing more. The math of the world adds up to say. Oh tall for nothing. What it's in those moments that are part and parcel with only. It's all for everything right. The alternative you know. And i'm wishing hallmark card delusion i'm trying to. I'm not a fan of that stuff. I'm not a pep rally. Cheerleader guy. i'm trying to find practical stuff. I've tried to find it my own life and of it is to pull another line for the book. If you do have an island point of view okay well then purchased this once. you know. it's a near dawn right. So if you're going to say oh. It sucks within go. Well okay gonna make the best of it however so i think that's what you what you're loading to in certain times where my red and yellow lights in the l. All having when. I bring up something as simple as sense of humor being default emotion on not within the contradictions that that i'm not i'm not i'm using bring that up. Say that doesn't deny the crisis now. It's just another tool to help you deal with it. It's more survival. And some of these things maybe thrive but at least can use to help better survive. And how little more satisfaction getting through this rodeo. We're all in right. you know. it's not. It's not even fair to say it's a a a typical book that i mean it does. It does have things that you can apply to your life. But it's not a how to book is a memoir sweat slash. These are the things that worked for me. Take it if you like it. If not i don't i don't you know this is what this is. What my life is did. You is that i guess. What was the intent when you set out to right. It wasn't to help people like myself or help other people or was it just to kinda get your authentic self out. There was a deleted legacy for your kids. it was all the above. What was it. I mean i mean somewhat all the above started off i thought it was gonna be before i opened up that big trust of journals to see what i had in them ones. I've been keeping for the last thirty six years i i. I had an idea of what i thought i was gonna find. You and i thought it would be very academic. I thought it was going to be very self help. I thought it was going to be sort of. If then if then and i like some of that but again back can start to lean into that hallmark or world and self has got. You know we've all i've got. I've got a decent relationship with with with self help. But i like i like my sort of wisdom to have little more context and allow me the individual to have the power to go rhino acting. Apply this in a different way and my position and this is i can apply in a particular way that no one else can. We each can do that.

That doesn't mean trespassing on each others rights or or or or you know doesn't take away. I'm not talking about taking away individual freedoms but we do need something we do need to bind some social contracts with each other in whether they're even if they're unsaid we need a bit of an understanding constitution that if you and are hanging out and you and i shake hands on the deal i can i. I want to be able to trust the. You're not going to pick my pocket and screw me on the deal. Right looked at each other. I mean there's some certain things of decency and integrity and responsibility and accountability even risk taking sense of humor that we can. We need to re bind between us and understanding that that trust is so low right now known as who they trust man we just other trust ourselves. We don't believe in others. We don't have a consensus between a science or leadership. Who the hell do we listen to do. And what happens in then. We start really individual. Where i listen anybody. Then that's not a great recipe of everyone becomes so selfish that they don't give a damn about each other at all. Not at all not at all and i love what you're saying here about you know. Instead of finding tribes and politics race gender finding our tribe been in shared values. I think that's that's a pretty good message. There you know hell if you run.

Some great scenes in the book when you're on this run of romantic comedies I, think it's the first one, the big one, the wedding planner where they write you Jack and you go. Wow. Okay. I'm going to the sat dome. Armand, me get my own key to the kitchen could stakes three o'clock in the morning? Did you enjoy living that big life during that run? When really boy it was one movie after another that were hits and everybody knew you and your co stars also big stars as well. Did you like that run up until a point because in the book you say, I knew it sort of had to end somewhere. I did I thoroughly. Enjoyed it. When I gave myself licensed to enjoy it. I went ahead and said, okay, let's. Let's see how much freedom you can give yourself in go. Let's just let's the lean into. Your Life that that that you've that you've got McConnell Haney the access influence and fame let's lean into just let's let's. Let's go those play that character. For a while and I did and I quite enjoyed it but I always knew even going into it that it was going to be a stop. Not Stay I mean I knew I didn't know how long I was like no, don't go ahead. Don't don't don't. You know pull out of this too early leaning to enjoy it and you'll know when it's time to get out and that time did come where I needed more resistance I needed more I was I was I'd had enough Saturdays row. In my life and onscreen and I needed some Monday morning accountability responsibility in I needed some ascension and. Building needs resistance to create a new structure in my life, and then I think around two, thousand eight or so you sort of put on the brakes on things for almost two years and. Twenty months you say, all right. I'm going to recalibrate. What were you doing in those twenty months? Had you know which direction to head after that? Well. I knew I wanted to go rolls I wanted to do but those rules are not coming my way. So they were not an option so because I couldn't do what I wanted to do I stop doing what I was doing. South Romantic, Comedy Stop the action. Adventures. moved out of the Chateau, etc.. I'd met my now wife Camilla that time was falling love with her and we had. Created our first child. So. Those were to really great anchors to have for me in my life when I chose to take a sabbatical working. I knew I would battle bouts of insignificance which I did a new battle bouts of..

"Everyone had a biography of which happens to any person who gets famous. Somebody has an innate. Perception, somehow of that person before they come up and they lean right into the story, they come right into the cliff notes you know without the introduction. I noticed I was not meeting strangers anymore I noticed that for me personally, my soul. Needed some missed its anonymity. here all of a sudden last Friday before time to kill cames out came out there were one hundred scripts done but I couldn't do any of them and now two days later Monday. Their offer me all hundred of those scripts and I'm going what two days ago I would have done any of those. Now you're telling me I, can do all of those I need some discernment I need to go figure out what what what matters here matters to me so. I put on backpack and got outta Dodge and went to places where people did not know my name where I was stuck with no one. But me and my internal dialogue to try and get my soul and feet on the ground and understand my head and my heart communicating clearly again to say what is it? I want what I want WanNa do what is it I don't want I write about this a lot in the book. You know it's very hard to know what we want and who we are. And that's okay. By process of elimination getting rid of the things you don't want and who you are not you will give you a better chance to end up being who you are and getting what you want. So that was the beginning of that process after I became famous and and then went on from there. That's every day since then for you is that feel like a lifetime ago when people did not know you on the street. All, I kind of. kind of I'm kind of at ease with it. Now, I still I'm able to now And much more quick now to meet someone in already understand is out they've already got a bye on you but I know how to get down. Underneath that with them. So we can have a real conversation. They can be completely honest with me as the guy, they just met Matthew, not the actor but the man math McConnell. So I've learned the tools for how to get under that in a graceful way hopefully, and sometimes it takes longer with certain people sometimes, it can take you know I don't have the effort. The where I write about in the book, we less impressed more involved sometimes, people will be impressed with my fame or something I'm not. They're not involved in the conversation with right there holding reverence for my place in society a someone famous that they're not really being themselves for behaviors. I've learned tools to get them to go. Okay. got that now. Hey, come here. And ask in certain question about the day. Do you have children or something like that and all of a sudden then baselines and I can have an involve conversation ONS conversational somebody but I've learned how to do that over the years.

"Week with Oscar winner Matthew mcconaughey who does not love McConnell. Hey. We I fell in love with a guy back in nineteen ninety three when he played Woodson in the movie dazed and confused remember he was the twenty something guy who is still hanging out with the high school kids in town kind of a local legend who uttered the phrase alright. Alright. Alright. Did you know? Those three words were the first line ever delivered by Matthew mcconaughey in a movie it was his first acting job and that was his first line from there. He went on three years later to star in a time to kill opposite Sandra Bullock. That's when he really became a movie star then he went through the two thousands as this. Romantic comedy guy doing movies with Kate, Hudson, and J. Lo, and at long list of romantic comedies and then two thousand eight just goes dark. He was offered at one point. You'll hear talk about it fourteen and a half million dollars to do another. Comedy and he said, no, that's how serious he was about kind of things in a new direction in his career. So he goes away for twenty months almost two years. Comes back and just takes dramatic roles. Culminating in Dallas Buyers Club for which he won the Oscar. For Best Actor, of course, he did true detective which an amazing Hbo Series and so much more since then and now he's out with this book called Green Lights, it is the story of his life. He went back and looked at the diaries he has kept for thirty five or thirty six years since he was fourteen years old, he's fifty now. But last year he took all those diaries went to a cabin with no electricity in the middle of nowhere and read through them in realized there's some good stories in here I should put them in a book because I think a lot of people can relate to them. Most of US met Matthew, mcconaughey as a movie star but there's a lot of life for him before he got into the business Amazing. Truly like eye-popping some of them shocking stories in the book about his childhood and growing up in South West Texas you day Texas including some scenes in his home of violence between his parents violence toward him and we have kind of a a deep conversation about what he took away from that what it means to him. So so much to talk about with Matthew mcconaughey around his new book called Green Lights Right now on the Sunday, sit down podcast. Matthew thanks for doing this man. Appreciate it.

Four fantastic stories amazing stories mostly about as a life less about his career, but there's tons of career stuff in there too. Anyway, I'm reading the book. And I come to a page. where? This is like two thirds into the book. He tells a story about. ME. And Him. This is the story guys. This is the story. What he promised, what he told me two and a half years ago that we would talk about it's in the book. So I didn't have to wait thirty years. I didn't even have to wait twenty five years either way to two and a half years and I kind of love the way it happened I found out just by reading the memoir myself and I'm not going to go into it too much right now we go into it in this conversation right at the outset and it's a lot of fun.

"Matthew. Welcome to the show. Good to be here. Tim. How are you sir? I'm doing very well, and I have just an embarrassment of riches in front of me in terms of notes that I would love to to take some stab at covering even a portion of and I thought we could begin with a little backstory for those people who know your work perhaps not your personal story. Let's paint a picture of your parents now lives in preparation for this conversation doing some homework and I came across a quote of yours feel free to fact, check this of course is from the Guardian but it says one of the great images I have my father is on the phone with a cigarette at the airport on the pay phone always peddling. Peddling pipe and how What is what is that for those who don't know been coupling? So he ruin the old business and to drill you obviously pipe couplings connect the pipe to drill for oil. So Dad was in the pipe coupling business and he was he would call it peddling pipe, Paralympic no John Pendant peddling pipe and that twenty did on the phone eight to six, and then he hit the road and Go make personal appearances China. So pipe, he started off as a truck driver than Texaco station down you've Audi we moved to longview Texas oil boom within like six months after being in Longview. Dad like twenty six employees under him. That's how big of an oil boom was, and then obviously at that business through I think around eighty two and he kind of held on from there he was always. Always, peddler is line was great. He was always be never did it never went bankrupt and that was a piece of honor for him not to go bankrupt but he was always after all boom sort of busted he was always act boys if I could just. I just hit a lick and he never did hit that lick. But if if he lick is. Big Sale Olympic is a big cow lick is okay Mr. Jim Magana. Hey I want all my pipe from you and we're going to drill two hundred thousand feet above abide. So says huge count on my Gosh I'm going to supply the pipe to this one large account that would be a lick he never quite yet. So we're going to jump to the other track with mom for a second here and at like to have conversation about or description maybe of mink oil. Could you tell us how oil entered your life? Please I would not be here talking to you right now if it wasn't for the oil of Meek Yeah It was about home fourteen, fifteen years old ninth grade adolescence. My mom starts pedaling again Pentland Milan family was pedaling something my mom starts pedaling this oil of me product door to door sales. Look here you put this mink oil on your face it brings out all the impurities that you have and watch those impurities all come out. You then have clear glowing in for the rest of your life that was sort of the sales pitch right? Well, I'm fifteen I got a few pimples as any fifteen year old does one night. My mom goes well, you should choose this all. Great you're let me do that. Sure. So I started putting this oil make on my face every night before I go to bed, and after about a week, I wake up and got more pimples than I had a week. And I check in the mirror go to Mama as don't she goes that exactly what is supposed to to pull out all the impurities keep doing it stick with it sure. I'd just religiously keep putting it on after two weeks. Now seem to be run into a problem. He I've got I've. got a whole full of pimples and it's it's it's getting pretty severe back. She's Oh. Wow. You've just got more impurities then I thought you just keep keep doing it going to keep bringing out those impurities I keep it up three weeks. Go by now I've got full blown acne and I'm really concerned my mom's staying on with no stick with it all coming out well I sneak off to the dermatologist on my own. And this was not my mom's recommendation I, sneak there on. In, take a bottle of this Mako. Doc Look at my face. This is put on your face shown this bodies liberty reads ladies like Oh no, no, no, no, no no. No this is i. someone that's like forty year old or not a teenage child who's got oily pours anyway this blocking your pores your pores can't breathe. You are ten days away from having ice pick holes in your face from acne get you off this. Okay as we also have to get you on this stuff got accutane. It's a years worth of medicine. It will dry you up there will have its complications, but it'll be better than in the acting that you can have APSO boom. I could on the accutane off the oil of make and around that time my dad who's always as peddling and look and how to hit lick. says. Damn Boy I. We got a lawsuit against his company. Them becoming I mean you're you're looking at me look you. You're all swollen up. So he takes me to see lawyer remember lawyers, Jerry hairs.

What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina
"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down

A Critique of Dallas Buyer's Club
"Let's. Let's Talk About Dallas Buyers Club. I first and foremost all the triggers. Goddamn because everything you thought you knew about this movie you were right and then there's more. There's The the TRANSPHOBIA is there from the characters. It's enacted characters but it's also just that kind of trans-phobia where it's tucked under. Oh, it's actually homophobia but that's because they don't know what to do with someone who presents in a way that is not stereotypical. To one gender or another. and. Yes. So look up triggers for this movie. There are so many that I don't even feel like sitting down and listing them but look them up before you continue to consume this podcast and before you decide to watch that movie. That said, had you either? Have you seen this movie before we went to the podcast first time? For a first time on that radio to. See what I did there. On brand very unbranded. Yeah. It was my first time too. I definitely knew it. As you said, for all the reasons that I knew, and then there were more reasons that I was glad I did until now. Oh Yeah so This movie I have to say because I tried to as much as I'm trashing it as much as I'm like Oh this all this I really wanted to like this movie I went in wanting to like it I remember talking to a friend about this movie because I refused to see it. So I was like, why are people praising jared leto wire people praising his portrayal of Now, I can't remember the name of Rayon why and I actually had to coax it out of a friend because. This was a friend that I respected their opinion on and they basically said they were like, well, you don't actually want to know you wanna be mad and it's like, no I respect your opinion i. am asking you why people care what is it about this helped me and what this friend said to me was that the portrayal of someone who is going through a having aids being HIV positive and then having AIDS, and then dying from another disease which. It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point.

Warehouse in east, Austin, and so. I went down there, and he offered me a Tequila shot and we worked out a deal. And from what I understand like distribution, you say destruction, but that was like you in a car. Well maybe not formal distribution, but twenty or thirty friends of ours that had called our office, saying. Hey, I'd love to help you make deliveries. Kind of created this daisy chain of volunteers across Texas where you know, we could get something to abilene and then a friend in Abilene. Get it on up to Lubbock Grammar out west Texas and the Permian Basin. And, then as we kinda develop and got better at it. We were introduced to people who wanted to help. A A really good example is a lady I met named Camilla all this who I didn't recognize the name, but she's actually married to Matthew mcconaughey. And they were great about getting US donated. Supplies, mcconaughey! Yeah. Hey. Yeah And I didn't realize when she said she had a driver ready that it was matthew with A. Truck full of mask ready to go to. Hospitals. And she said I have a driver. Eddie and it was her husband Matthew mcconaughey, who was like liver masks. If you need me to the threat, it's amazing. Talk to me a little bit about sort of how things have changed since the early days as we talk today, most areas of Texas. Are. Reporting Trans that are a little bit problematic and scary. Right because from what I've read and what I understand like Texas was at a a pretty advanced stage of reopening, and then his actually like walked it back. Early on we were will behind other states especially New York, in thought, we managed it fairly well. Most of that worst case scenario forecast did not materialize in March and April, but it certainly has since the Memorial Day holiday I think that actual coca cases in hospital admissions are like four times higher than they were at the beginning of June and I think for the first time over the weekend. We were reporting more than eight thousand cases a day. So it's it's all headed. Definitely headed the wrong direction, and now we've got a statewide mask. Order Oh so everywhere you go. You have to wear masks outside. Everywhere you go in counties with more than twenty cases, which is almost everybody. We're working to try to secure a stockpile ventilators that we can distribute around Texas you know as we see those flare ups and can help them deal with it. The thing that's actually a little bit scary to me is that the urban areas are at or near capacity which means that the rural hospitals are having to keep patients that are a little bit more acutely, ill or higher level of need than they would normally keep, so we're? They would, they would transfer someone who is really sick to a larger urban hospital, which might have more equipment resources. Things like that. That's exactly right. And they're doing that fairly well, but. In, they've got bed capacity. They're just stretched when it comes to staffing, primarily I think the state of Texas actually has sent twenty three hundred nurses to South Texas to try to help them because the hospitals her. You know bursting at the seams. There's been a lot of coverage about the difficult financial situation that a lot of hospitals are in right now. The things that they traditionally made a lot of money off of elective surgeries and clinic visits have been canceled and they've had to make big investments in equipment and staffing other things to prepare for the pandemic rural hospitals operate on a really thin margin, compared to other hospitals often barely make a profit with this surge coming in Texas. Are you worried that some rural hospitals won't make it? Oh, yes. I was worried in April that we might have a dozen rural hospitals close in, I would get multiple calls every day from rural hospitals. CEO's that were saying. We're on the ropes. You know we didn't have any cash and we were maxed out on credit before this thing started. Now we've got you know. Shutdown orders, clinic, visit, cancellations, and no elective surgeries or procedures in. We aren't going to make the next payroll soccer. We're GONNA close. Thankfully in April. They got some significant federal stimulus money that aimed ten billion dollars nationally that rural hospitals and rural health clinics that single funding alone saved half a dozen rural Texas Hospitals Oh. And so a concern of mine as we look at the whatever the next stimulus package be that if if conditions don't change and that doesn't move, then we could. Have you know more rural hospital closures. You could make an argument that like well we. We should concentrate our resources an urban hospitals and they can have like the very best everything. People can just get transferred. Well, that's that's the argument that urban citizens matter more than rural citizens and I believe every Tex Mex and some of these rural communities are literally. From a larger community, so I think I think Cova has actually been a pretty stark reminder of lots access to healthcare in hospital. Capacity Matters. you know I, I know that we wish we had some of hospitals available that have closed in the last few years. I'm wondering I. Don't know just like what your? Takeaway from this whole thing has been. Well. I think it's probably the most consequential six months in my lifetime, and and maybe the most the next one hundred days. We'll be as important as anything we've been through. A since April,
Female Comedians Unite
"Hollywood's top comedy. Actresses are uniting in saying they are sick of being put in a box. Tiffany Haddish told the Hollywood reporter that she had to turn down multiple projects as a block comedic actress. She says she gets roles that are overtly sexual or roles that had her play a mom whose child gets hurt in some way. Way And she's fighting for justice. She mentioned this during a virtual actress roundtable. That also included Jamila Djamil Jamila said she's always given scripts to play a character who has too much sex. Robin said the writing is often so bad for comedy actresses. She's resorted to writing her own. Do you think that men and comedic roles feel the same way, or is this? Just a one sided argument. No I think you've you asked Matthew mcconaughey Hey why his career went away did it's because those were kind of the only roles that men had to get as well men who were players, men who still had roommates in their forties men? who were Douche bags? That never got out of Frat life. I think that's comedy is all about is lagging at at those things in life, but I think men do get them as well. Okay, I I was conflicted about this I I'm not a comedic actress and I actually thought the opposite I thought that women who were put in comedic roles were usually sort of the best friend role or the woman. That's like maybe made to look as unattractive. Unattractive as possible to be as funny as possible, so I didn't realize that women who were being put in comedic roles. We're supposed to be overtly sexy or things of that nature so to hear this actually quite surprised by it because I just didn't view it that way. Yeah, I think there's typecasting when it comes to a lot of actors whether it's you were maybe a nerdy role in one movie. Then a lot of people see you as oh. That's going to be the quintessential nerd. If we look at Michael Sarah or Christmas, plus like they are also typecast in their own way, so yeah, I feel like it falls on both sides, but do we feel like right Impro-? No I wouldn't ask for it to improve what I would do. is either a write my own scripts and come up and find content that is right for me as an actor or an actress or I would just pass those things up because what happens is if you pass it up. Another actress gets the job, so let's not have those roles diminish. Let's see those roles go away. Just pass them to another actress. Who's just starting her career? Everyone's not in the position, obviously to pass roles and I think you do have to maybe do roles in the beginning of your career, like for example, even just with my own career right I started on a reality show. That wasn't my end goal but I did that to get to where I was now. There was obviously no guarantee in that out, but luckily it has women who wannabe actresses, whether it's serious actresses or comedic actress, or both start their career out and have different intentions are willing to do different things than maybe they get. Get a little bit more famous, or they get a little bit more successful, but I think what you said. Aaron was very valid and I don't know if it's a comedic actress. Issue I think shirt. People just get typecast in general I think the bigger conversation I feel like when you're casting one role, you do it sell well. People tend to want you for different kinds of roles that are similar to that. Yes, yeah, exactly and like what you were saying just in like you know if you don't want those roles, let's not eliminate them. On them, and these women who are part of this roundtable seem like they're fortunate enough to be able to pass on those roles that they don't WanNa, take on I will play the funny gay friend. Anytime Billy. Porter is not

Fonts Can Send Political Messages
"Here's something weird. Certain thoughts can send political messages. And with that. I am announcing my campaign for presidency using economic sense. Ms Well actually when you listen to this research you're gonNA realize why you don't WanNA use Comic Sans. Because nobody likes. It and liking fonts is one big part of this. I like Comic Sans No you. Don't nobody likes Comic Sans Vinyl run using papyrus even worse. My running mate will be Matthew mcconaughey all right well. A little while ago. A researcher at Virginia Tech named Kathryn Hanshin Notice that a local political candidate use different fonts on their signs in rural areas than they did in town as a political messaging expert. She wondered. Why was there. Something different about the fonts that worked best with people in the city versus people in the country so Hanshin turn that question into a research project. She and her team surveyed more than two thousand people to find out what they thought of various typefaces. And whether they thought fonts lined up with political ideologies sure enough they found that fonts can send political messages people see Fonseca's having liberal or conservative leanings. And the more people think of aligns with their thinking the more they'll like it. So here's the breakdown. Funds come in two basic varieties Sarath and sans Serif. A Sarah is a little liner stroke at the end of a letter. Think Times New Roman or your classic typewriter font the stuff you see in Newspapers Sans Serif Fonts are the ones without syrups silicon Arial Helvetica or the meriwether sands of the curiosity logo or just look at your keyboard right now. Chances are those letters are in a San Serif style. The study showed that generally speaking Sarah Fonts are considered more conservative and Sans Serif. Fonts are seen as more liberal. Bold type is seen as more conservative than Italic type but there are some differences within font families for example the highly serif black letter typeface. You usually see on the masthead of the New York Times and the Washington Post was seen as more liberal by conservative participants. Possibly because that's how they see these outlets specifically the important thing is that the more people viewed a font aligned with their ideology the more they liked it and vice versa. Basically this research shows that fonts have meaning and they're not just all about looks so as the two thousand twenty election heats up maybe take a closer look at those lawn. Signs and billboards design has a bigger impact than you think.
