Sarah Silverman  00:15

Hey everybody, it’s your old pal Sarah and, you know, I had to wear heels high heels last night, I know I can do it I can do it for one night. Nope, I can’t, I can’t do it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t know how other women can do it. It hurts, immediately, within two minutes, I am in excruciating pain. And they do make the leg look nice. But at what cost? I am just at a point in my career where in my life rather, maybe a both. It is not worth it. People don’t love me because I wear heels. So I don’t, that doesn’t have to be a part of my life. And I’m done, I’ve one more day of wearing a heel. I’m wearing it on a red carpet for Maestro. And then I’m taking my dress and my heels off and putting a maybe a nice maybe a quince cashmere sweat suit or something with sneakers, and that’s that. I don’t get it but I do love looking at all the dresses, I love it, God I really do. But um, I was at this event, real Hollywood mucky muck thing you know, I don’t know and I was trying to get my car. You know, I had like a fancy car service. And it had to go back around the block because I wasn’t there in time and I go, man, and then I hear someone go somebody’s getting Sarah Silverman’s call for and it was fucking Meryl Streep. I feel like I’m lying. It said this, this can’t happen but no, it was. And then I tried to take my own advice I remember I told someone who called in who said, Oh, how do I become friends with or how do I talk to a famous person or I can’t remember and I said, just be cool, you know, because being too much in awe creates like this separation, you know? And I tried to take my own advice so it was like Meryl, how you doin God, I loved you in only murders in the building she was so awesome in this last season. And we were talking and her daughter came over I had done let an episode of The Good Wife with her and, and I couldn’t believe it. And I’m not usually one to brag a douche but she said hey, has your podcast come back? I was like what? It sure has Meyl, o Meyl live for you’re in your car listening to your podcast, hi I love you. Boy, she’s cool and she wore a you know, a nice outfit with a comfortable low heel. She wasn’t fucking around and boy, she was so beautiful, she’s gorgeous. All right, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. What do we got?


Selia  03:41

Ola, Sara or princess woman of high rank in Hebrew. This is Selia from Connecticut, but I’m really a Queens gal Brooklyn inbred. I’ve been a fan for a really long time since my ex boyfriend introduced you to me as being his favorite comedian because he thought you were filthy, at least your content was filthy. So I quickly had to look you up and I’ve been on the band. I jumped on the bandwagon and been a fan ever since. I’m calling today, because in your last podcast you asked that we call if this is the first Thanksgiving without a loved one. My beautiful brother passed away a month ago, suddenly, from a heart attack. He was three days shy of his 60th birthday. I still can’t even believe it’s been a month. I can’t believe he’s even gone. It’s like I can’t believe it’s him. Why him he was so youthful so full of life, it’s been an awful world when so now it’s just the three of us my sister and my brother, my parents who I’m worried about they’re frail. My brother who’s single who lost his daughter a couple of years ago to diabetes. I’m very fortunate that I have my kids my main my job to keep me you know are occupied and get me through. But I just really don’t know what can make me feel better. I know people say time, but someone today told me that you know, you just get used to living with this. That doesn’t really truly get easier but I hope that you enjoy your first Thanksgiving without your parents. How were you guys celebrating this year without them? Maybe this can also be a PSA for people. You know, just really get on your health go to your doctor, go to your cardiologist, you know, stay on top of things, and also live life to the fullest. Thank you, Sarah, for everything keeping you keep doing what you’re doing, girl and fuck all those haters. Love you mucho, take care ciao.


Sarah Silverman  05:48

Oh, thank you. Um, I’m so sorry, God, God, I am so sorry. You are not beholden to have a forever underlying sadness in your life because of this, I just want to free you of that. You may have it, but you don’t have to you you. Certainly you know that if your brother if he were consciously a part of this conversation, he would want you to live your best possible, happiest life. You know, we’re we’re on this planet for a blip, as evidenced by your brother and everyone else in the whole world who has died and will die. It’s so funny, death is guaranteed and yet we still just cannot bear it. And there’s something beautiful about it, I think but yeah, I’m so sorry and you know, just as just as someone who is able to be, you know, very pragmatic or cut and dry, because it’s not me, it’s you. When talking to you, I can say you know, embody the best parts of him. Take on your favorite parts of him embody it. And through you, he will live and and isn’t that joyful? And, yeah, for me, you know, my parents were 80 and 85. But still it felt you know, they totally had their shit together. And there, they were, had all their marbles and everything, it didn’t feel like they were elderly, like, well, you know, they were all so yeah, we had our first Thanksgiving, luckily, all four sisters were there at my place and, and most of our partners, Susie’s husband was not there because he’s in Israel. And it was really nice, actually and, you know, we we put the, you know, they were there buried together. You know, they died, Janice died, they were holding hands. We buried Janice and nine days later, my dad died in and I think I told you this and you know, he always wanted to be buried and I was like, did I say this on the podcast before where I was like, on the phone with the mortuary was like, still alive? Like our family is so fucked up. I’m trying to get ahead of it, you know, and they made no death plan. And I’m like, yelling into my dad’s bedroom. Dad, I know you wanted to be buried. But do you mind being cremated? Because we got this deal on Genesis plot? And this is so bad for the Jews. But anyway, if you’re cremated, you can be buried like with her, you know? He goes, I don’t give a shit, I’ll be dead, I go oh, you’re so easy great thanks, yeah, we’ll take it. Um, it was a really lovely Thanksgiving we missed them we ate for them, but you know, I one thing that I do is I email them, I emailed them yesterday, my dad, my stepmom, my stepdad and my mom and they’re all dead. But they all have these email addresses, you know, and I just feel like I don’t know if it’s a message in a bottle. I don’t know if wherever they are, they see it, probably not. But it just gives me comfort. Because no one loves you like your parents just period. So that’s just gone now, you know? And so I sent them like the trailer for Maestro that I’m in you know, and I sent it and then it’s made me a little bit sad but um it’s I got a thing back that my mom’s email address is full. And so it can’t take any more emails, and it’s symbolic and it doesn’t matter, but it just put a little lump in my throat because I don’t know, I felt somehow connected in that way. Like they still get their emails, which they don’t I’m sure, but I don’t know. Anyway, yes, this is a good PSA to, for people to get on top of your health stuff, not my parents as an example. They were older, but certainly your brother and all that it, you know, go to all the doctor’s appointments hopefully your insurance covers it. Health care in this country is atrocious. But it feels like when you take care of yourself and you just make the appointments, you don’t have to think about it. Just make them put them in your calendar and fucking go before work or whatever, and it makes you feel like you’ve really accomplished something and you really have all right, what else?


Chris  11:06

Good morning or afternoon or evening, Ms. Silverman, whatever time of day it is you’re doing this. Hi, I’m Chris, and I just wanted to call in touch on a couple things. First and foremost, I wanted to say, my deepest condolences on Janice and Shleppers passing. It was always really entertaining whenever you’d call Shalabi or having called in or whatnot and he was always just really funny. So thank you for sharing him with the world. And I also just wanted to know did you ever talk to or hear from or anything with that porn star who said your name in that video that one time you were watching it randomly? I think about it all the time, whatever I’m like searching Pornhub or something although you know of course I’m looking for gay porn. But I’m I you know whenever I have on there I’m like, Sarah Silverman, like goes through my head and I start laughing but yeah, did you ever get in contact? Or did you ever hear about you knowing about it? Like, just was curious about that so um, thank you so much, love you Bye.


Sarah Silverman  12:10

That’s hilarious, by the way I’ve been searching gay porn lately. It’s just been my thing, I think because I just don’t like seeing I don’t I worry about the woman so for the kind of foreign I like so then I just watch men doing it. But um yes, no, no, I have not heard from him just to for anyone who doesn’t know this story. I was on Howard Stern years ago and I told him my porn search words at that time which was like Guy fucks mattress coma verbal it’s basically like a guy fucking a pocket pussy wedged between the the mattress in the springboard of his bed and there’s usually some pile of laundry in the background and his verbal the verbal part is like very dominant like you whore you want it which is like kind of what I like but I don’t like but I like it this way because it’s like there isn’t a person there it’s kind of very vulnerable and heartbreaking but also it does the job anyway point being I after that appearance maybe a month later or something you know I go oh maybe I’ll and I searched my search words guy fucks matress comma verbal and this one a new one came up but I it’s very rare, there’s probably only like eight videos. But boy, there’s something for everyone. And I watched it and when the guy came he yelled my name my whole name Sarah Silverman. And then he started laughing he was like, that’s what you like gray, and I couldn’t believe it. I mean, I I thought someone had like broken through my phone or something but is because he was delivered me on Howard Stern anyway. It was very thrilling, and I’ve always like saved the link to it, but I think it’s not there anymore anyway, I know I never connected with the guy which is probably fine. But it is hilarious to me, I mean, I’m curious. I think it was like a 21 year old you know young young man porn. Wow so much just came up I was searching in my my notes let’s see, guy fucks mattress verbal here’s the link let me see, yeah, I think it’s like yeah, video has been flagged for verification in accordance with our trust and safety policy. Video was disabled. hmm, that’s weird, whoa, oh my gosh, a lot of other stuff just came up. But ya no, never, never connected with him and you get totally connected with them.



Hey, Sarah with an H. I’m a new listener, but I think I could use your advice about my ex partner of six years. We recently moved to Los Angeles for him to attend grad school. During the move, we ended up breaking up. We still love each other deeply and have decided we want to keep the opportunity open for our future relationship. Part of the reason that we broke up is because I have a lot of shame, and that shame has led to addiction. I am gay and atheist, and I grew up with parents who are both Presbyterian ministers, even though they are very accepting, loving parents now, I did not know that as a kid and I thought they would disown me as a Godless faggot. Because of that shame and self abandonment, I’ve developed addictions to kratom, kava and alcohol. That trauma was one of several reasons for us breaking up. I am now in Al Anon a 12 step program, man, thanks to Hank Azaria on the dopey podcast, which I can’t recommend enough. But now that we’re here, we’re exploring ourselves and our relationship and trying to gain perspective. He has told me honestly and compassionately that he is starting to date again on the side. I think this is important and healthy, but it’s still really hurts to hear. It makes me feel like a failed partner. I could use some words of encouragement to be able to detach with love. I’m trying to have self compassion and love for myself for the imperfect human I am. But it’s still so so hard. Any advice you have for me would be so greatly appreciated, thank you.


Sarah Silverman  16:42

That’s really interesting that that the shame you felt was from a perceived lack of acceptance from your parents that didn’t come to happen. It’s really what did what did you say he was addicted to besides alcohol? Ca? I didn’t recognize either of those words. It’s called kava.


David  17:04

It’s some type of like natural drug, drug made from the ground roots of a plant found in the South Pacific.


Sarah Silverman  17:13

How have I not heard of this drug? What is this? It says that people get addicted to is it.


David  17:19

It can create a sense of calm euphoria and overall well being, but has a range of problems, including apathy, weight loss, and liver damage.


Sarah Silverman  17:28

Wow, never even heard of that sorry, this is going to take up this answering your question time with with us. But I have never never heard of that before. I do wonder what? What led you to think that might be possible that your parents would not accept you? Or you know? Maybe it’s something they said or when they were preaching or something offhand or that that stuck? Because it, it was you know, I don’t know? I don’t know. So I can’t say but first of all, I would just say one day at a time sweet Jesus, that was a God that was a commercial bring up for for an album, and that was one of the songs one day at a time Sweet Jesus, that’s all I’m asking you. How can you detach with love if you’re doing it, you know, but you just exactly, just do it one day, by one day by one day, you’ve got to explore other people, first and foremost, yourself. He’s going to meet other people. This is got to be okay. Maybe someday you’ll come together but you can’t live your life aiming for that hoping for it or anticipating it. We’ve already seen what happens when you anticipate what’s going to happen and you think you know, because you don’t none of us do. You’ve never predicted a single thing that’s happened in your life and neither have I so let’s just stop telling ourselves horror stories and just be on the edge of our seat of what’s going to happen next. But it sounds like you’re doing everything right. You know, but but boy, I can’t say this enough and I don’t know if I’ve said it on this podcast, but when I guest hosted the daily show again and and Judd Apatow was the guest on The Last night I did and we were both very close with Garry Shandling and he wrote a book and he did a unbelievable two part documentary about him and and so much of his life was searching for serenity and not being jealous and being and giving love and do you know and so he kept these journals that are so informative. You know, he became a Buddhist not because he was so zen naturally because he needed to be he needed to learn it in order to thrive and have a happy life. And one of his journal entries which he showed me in this interview, just hit me so hard. He said, give what you didn’t get. And I know this doesn’t sound like the right answer to this question. But it is because it’s just, it’s for everyone, I think it’s just to me, it’s so profound, give what you didn’t get to take the time to learn about the big moments are the traumas in your childhood that affect you now, right? Like, if it’s hysterical, its historical, if you lose your shit, because you know, someone ate your Flaming Hot Cheetos or whatever, it’s probably about something bigger than that. That’s the stuff you have to figure out so that it doesn’t affect your everyday life now, you have to unlearn their survival skills of childhood, so that they don’t fuck up your adulthood and, boy, that’s a big one, because you can realize, you know, I wasn’t given as a child, I wasn’t given X, Y, or Z that I needed that every child needs. And you can be to realize that is incredible, but you can, it can make you bitter, or it can make you angry, or can make you angry at whoever was responsible for that a parent or whatever. But everyone’s doing the best they can with what they’ve been given blah, blah, blah. And to be able to give love or to give patience, or to give any of these things that you didn’t get as a child is, is really an incredible thing. And, and not just to be able to give it to others to give it to yourself. I mean, I know I sound like whatever this is just should have learned in therapy and stuff I’m a comic, but I know I’m onto something here, I know that this is, will help you start looking inward and start caring for yourself exactly how you would want to raise a child, treat yourself that way. Because until you do that, you’re not ready for any of it, you know, including relationship. I mean, everyone’s ready for relationship, because people are in relationships at all different times of their life but to really have a successful relationship is not just about finding the right person for you, it’s being the right person for you. And that takes you know, listen, I have friends that have gone to therapy their whole lives, and they’ve never changed, and they’re not better, and they’re an all they get out of it is that they’re right. Because they’re smart, they’re too smart for their own good. And they know innately what to say to a therapist to sound, enlightened, smart, and right in any of those situations that they’re describing in their therapy. That is a big waste of money you know, you have to be willing to talk about the ugliest, most shame filled parts of yourself and talking to a therapist, like talking to a priest, they can not tell anyone, any of this stuff. And they’re not going to judge you if they’re worth their salt. They’re gonna help you, and in that, how did we get here? I don’t know. You said how can you detach with love? look inward? Always the answer is go inward, this is what I’m learning now. Anyway, right now in therapy, you know, I’m learning about the unconscious mind, which is anytime we’re not being mindful, we’re not in our head, acknowledging what’s happening. When we’re just unconscious. The unconscious mind is reactionary, it’s knee jerk, if you hurt me, I’m going to hurt you the same. Without even really consciously even thinking those words. You know, that’s the knee jerk thing. That’s interesting, what else? Good luck.


David  24:10

Hi Sarah, I’m David from LA and I am a huge fan of yours. I’ve loved everything from the Sarah Silverman show all through your stand ups and really anything you’ve ever done, especially this podcast, which is amazing and I love how you’ve become a voice that we can all trust when it comes to really anything, thank you for everything you do you are one of a kind. My first question is I remember you saying that the bed wetter was coming to Broadway at some point, is that still in the works? Because I really want to come and see it. And the second question somewhat related to the first question is that my son is eight, eight and a half actually, and he is a bit wetter, and he’s gone through periods of time where he hasn’t wet the bed for even months at a time and then maybe once a week or once a month. And then now he’s eight and a half, and he’s wetting his bed every single day and it’s been in like a few months of every single day. And we try everything we’ve had alarms, and we do the thing where you’re waking up the middle of the night to go pee. But nothing seems to work and I don’t know, what is the thing? I mean, everybody says, eventually, everybody stops peeing in the neck. So it’s gonna happen at some point. What worked for you to just take time? Was there a thing? And around what age was it that you did stop wetting the bed? Thanks so much, love you. You’re amazing.


Sarah Silverman  25:33

You’re not gonna like this answer, I think I was about 15 when I really mostly stopped wetting the bed. Mobley, but I, it’s interesting that you say that, but he’ll stop for months at a time and then he’ll do it every night for a bunch. You know, I’m sure he, like me had enuresis, which I think is just like, your bladder is too small. But it’s also I believe, emotional and, you know, it’s, it’s, it’s so it’s physical, and it’s emotional, I don’t know. But, um, I had times where I didn’t really wet the bed and then times where I went to bed every night as a matter of fact, for about three years, I kept a diary, and it’s so heartbreaking at the top of each page, it says wet or dry, because I wanted to keep track and try to find a pattern or something. For me, you know, I was one of those like, tiny, tiny, tiny kids, I didn’t grow until I was like, 17, I didn’t get my period until I was almost 18. And then I like exploded, you know? So there’s just a million factors and I think the pressure to stop is is something you can let go of, if there’s any pressure around him to stop, because, believe me, he wants to stop. So instead, I think just being fine with it, you know, I had a mom that didn’t she was great in an emergency. But she you know, I did a lot for mice I did a lot as a kid, you know, I was alone a lot when I was seven, I was eight I was home alone, and I was scared I’d get in on my Ed run home and get on my couch and put a blanket like above my neck so murderers wouldn’t kill me and I turned on the TV would keep me company and I would just be sweating from having a blanket over my head. But um, I was too young to be you know, it wasn’t until I was older, I was like dating Jimmy Kimmel and he had kids and they had babysitters, like, you know, past seven, you know, all this to say I at a very young age was knew how to do laundry, so I would wet the bed, I would strip my bed, I would wash my sheets I would make remake my bed. All this to say, you know, believe me he wants to stop wetting the bed. And just be supportive and say, you know, you’re gonna grow out of this, you’ll grow out of it, in a week or in a year or whenever you do whenever your body is done. And yeah, walking, like before you go to bed, take them to pee. And that definitely helps you know, I had the alarm thing that was traumatic for me, my dad, it made me never want to stay at my dad’s because I just would pinch myself awake all night. I was so afraid of being surprised by that, I mean, I can do the exact noise the alarm would make the it was it’s a sheet that goes under your sheets and the second it gets wet it goes sorry, it’s terrifying and I’m Chicken Little I really don’t like being scared, it affects me at a cellular level so that didn’t help me at all, while that helped me do was stay up all night long when I slept at my dad’s for that time. And then it was because he was a breadwinner and he just so wanted me to not have that torture, and yet I was sent to sleep over camp from the age of six. So I did have that torture because I was a bed wetter. And I would just like totally separate from my brain and my body like just take off my wet clothes and change with everyone else and make my bed with my hospital corners even though it’s over a soaking wet sheets that just got wetter and colder. It was awful, I hated summer camp. Because it was my parents salvation. Both of them had horrible lives other than summer camp where they thrived. They that they insisted that we went and it was just a terrible experience for me but um you, so just you have to be okay with it. Show him, you’re okay with it, he’s not doing anything wrong, he’s not doing it on purpose it’s not laziness and he’s gonna grow out of it, period, you’re gonna wash a lot of sheets. That’s all, and, you know, going through stuff makes you interesting so there you go, he’s gonna be interesting.


Molly  30:31

Oh, that was my oven going off but I just wanted to call in support of the woman whose son has schizophrenia and recommend YouTube channel for her. It’s called Living well with schizophrenia. Um, and I just want her to know that she’s not alone and that plenty of us listening, have a loved one who has experienced psychosis at the very least. And I just broadly want to make a comment that I think it’s so unfortunate that our culture has come so far when it comes to destigmatizing other mental illnesses, particularly anxiety and depression and yet, like, schizophrenia is still so so stigmatized, and I think that is just wrong. Yeah, and I don’t know if I already recommended this, I don’t remember, the YouTube channel living well with schizophrenia, super helpful yeah okay. Love you, bye.


Sarah Silverman  31:28

Thank you so much. I hope she’s listening and that’s a great resource, awesome. What else?


Molly  31:36

Hey, Sarah it’s your dear friend Molly, the Registered Dietitian. I’m calling I’m actually sitting in my car because I was just listening to your most recent episode and about the lady who eats ashes and as your producer rightfully pointed out, that is a condition called pica P I C A. That is very often caused by a nutrient deficiency, not always there’s other things that could be causing it, of course, but iron deficiency specifically so as a first step, get the to a doctor lady, so that you stop eating these carcinogens because, yes, it’s not good for us to smoke that’s carcinogenic, but also ingesting those kinds of materials isn’t good for you, either. So get to a doctor, see if maybe we can, they can correct any kind of nutrient deficiency in case that’s causing it and you can start putting good stuff in your body instead.


Sarah Silverman  32:30

Is there iron and ashes? That’s so interesting. Isn’t it Interesting that our bodies, yeah, we crave sugar or things like that, that are not good for us but like, our bodies, crave things we need too, like my best friend from high school. she’s, she’s, like, immaculate very, you know, like, always was a lady like, always it like went to the gym before school in high school and you know, like, but the one weird quirk, she would suck on pennies. Yes, and I think it was because she had like a copper deficiency. Very interesting, ashes. I have an iron …. I can be low on iron because I’m like, anemic and I have very low blood pressure, but I have not yet desired ashes. Very interesting, wild, what else?


Mike  33:37

Sarah, this is Mike Winston. Little Mikey Winston from Camp Sam.


Sarah Silverman  33:43

Sam has said this way dads camp.


Mike  33:45

I have no idea how I got to this recording spot. I’ve been meaning to contact you somehow for months. And I have no idea how to do it. I’m not great with all this technology stuff and I saw this and that and Twitter x and this podcast and bla bla bla bla bla. I’ve been meaning to say something and I don’t know what to say. But I will say this, your father had the most unbelievably incredible effect on me. As a child, I loved him, loved him loved him so much I can’t even begin to tell you every summer he was my counselor for the first five summers of my life because I started when I was about three. Because I was a big kid my mother just died and they put me in a bunk. And I only have 90 seconds here, and so Donnie was my counsel for five summers and anyway, I could go on all day, but I just want you to know that I’m so sorry, I cried. I was sad when Donnie died and I have no idea if you get this.


Sarah Silverman  34:46

Oh my God, that choked me up a little. Um I said this. answering another question earlier, right. Um, my dad’s salvation was camp. He was his father beat the shit out of them while his mother stood by doing nothing. His father made him call him Mr. Silverman. I mean, it was dark, I mean, he would beat him up. And by the way, didn’t let lay a hand on my dad’s brother, which is the exact same cases my mom and her sister, which is another kind of form of abuse to be the untouched kid that had to watch this and live with that guilt anyway. My grandpa’s best friend said to him, why do you beat Donnie so and, and my dad said that his dad said, I can’t help myself. I said, so dark, it’s so dark and hearing your message and I’ve heard this from other grown men who, my dad, he went to this camp camp Sam set and thrived and just blossomed and then became a waiter there and a counselor in training and a counselor. It was his his absolute joy because his dad beat him up. Then he went to a sleepaway School, which was some Christian school, Lawrence Academy is called where he got the shit kicked out him over him every day for being a dirty Jew. So summers were his salvation and talk about why this shows really coming together, I don’t know him, but um, talk about giving what you didn’t get. That that was my dad, you know, because, um, and Susie, my sister just told me, he went for she went for a walk as a kid, they they would go for these long walks. And he said to her, I’m a better father than my father was an you’ll be a better mother than I was a parent, you know. And that’s how you want it to be. But God, he wasn’t perfect, and as a kid, when I was young, he had horrible rage issues. But he really was such a great dad and such a wise person for and it’s funny because Susie and I both feel were this way too, which is, we are we’re, we’re wise on one hand, and like mind blowingly dumb on another. And we embody these two very different sides and my dad was that way. But I’m hearing about from his campers all these years later, and what he gave them as a counselor, he gave them the love and care he absolutely did not get tying it all together with what Garry Shandling taught us.

Sarah Silverman  39:22

Yeah, her explanations hilarious. You know, I’m, I write songs or I’ll write funny songs. But really, Laura is an awesome songwriter. And I always love her songs that if you remember back at the Sarah Silverman program, she wrote a song. I don’t know what we titled it, but we basically called it whatever happened to the white dog poo from the 70s. And I remember she’s saying it to me, we went, we were walking my dog. And she’s saying it to me. And I was like, oh my god, it’s so funny and so beautiful. So we we sang it in episode, I think called duty of the Sarah Silverman program, but I love her songs. I love when she writes in one time she just wrote, she’ll just wake up in the morning and write a song and then for a while, she would sing it to me and send it in a text and it was like my joy, my daily joy. And she wrote a country song. We both love country, good country, of which there is and she wrote a country song and it was beautiful. That’s what she does. It’s beautiful and hilarious. And we like to harmonize so she she wrote this country song as you say it and then we got asked to sing it on a live from here, which is it kind of took over Prairie Home Companion. But I love listening to it because it’s all my favorite kind of music. It’s it’s Chris Fili from Nickel Creek. And like sarin Sean Watkins from the Watkins family, our and just like, just the greatest singer songwriters like that kind of that’s my zoom that I love that kind of folk rock country Americana vibe. But they have comics on some times. And so they they I went on and Laura and I sang her song. And it was awesome. It was so fun. And you just go in you have just a very short time to rehearse. And they’ve got to just the greatest band and they learned it and it was like, so cool. And we come out and I it was funny. So check it out. If you Google like live from here. Sarah Silverman, Laura Silverman. You’ll find it and it was great. And the song is so good. And God. Yeah, that was that was a blast. Oh, and the song was called a dislocated heart. Check it out.
