Oh, let's just you.

Speaker 1 (00:21):
Hey everybody, Scott Patterson, I am all in Podcast one
eleven productions. iHeartRadio, iHeart Media, iHeart Podcasts, Season seven, Episode thirteen.
I'd rather be in Philadelphia pop culture lorleiash Richard how
he's doing while standing over him in the hospital room. Richard, Well,
all in all, I think I'd rather be in Philadelphia. Rory,

Ronald Reagan, Richard quoting W. C. Fields. I'd rather be
in Philadelphia's a quote W. C. Fields in nineteen twenty
five Vanity Fair article where he says, here lies W. C. Fields,
I'd rather be living in Philadelphia. Did you know by
implying that Philadelphia would be slightly preferable to the grave

the joke tapped a vein of critical commentary about the
city in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, just.

Speaker 3 (01:11):
That Ronald Reagan said it in a speech. So Rory
was attributing it to Ronald Reagan. But Richard's explaining that
Ronald Reagan was actually quoting W. C.

Speaker 2 (01:21):
Fields. Yep, got it, got it.

Speaker 4 (01:24):
I didn't know Vanity Fair went.

Speaker 1 (01:26):
Back that far did I actually, oh sure.

Speaker 3 (01:29):
Just came to me too, But that caused Loralai to
console her with some kind words about her dad.

Speaker 2 (01:36):
This is a great line.

Speaker 3 (01:37):
He's like, Warren Batty, your dad or Sean Connery or
who's that one I always found so sexy, the evil
politician with the glasses, Henry Kissinger. Oh yeah, I know him. Okay,
this is just like so great. Warren Batty is an
actor and filmmaker who's rumored to be linked to over
one hundred female celebrities, but he settled down with an
At Benning and one hundred.

Speaker 2 (01:58):
Yeah, I think there was.

Speaker 1 (02:00):
That's like a weekend for that guy when he was young.

Speaker 3 (02:02):
Yeah, Warren Batty was kind of Hubba Hubba in his
time there sort of.

Speaker 2 (02:07):
He was not that long ago.

Speaker 1 (02:10):
He was Leonardo DiCaprio of his day.

Speaker 2 (02:12):
Yeah. So Sean Connery, he was the man. Sean Connery
was the first.

Speaker 3 (02:17):
Actor to portray James Bond on film, starring in seven
Bond films between sixty two and eighty three. But Sean
Donnery was still like pretty sexy even when he did
the rock Like, I was like, that guy's a badass,
Like he's a stud? Was he did pass away. Henry Kissinger,
who I think recently passed away. Actually, Henry Kissinger was

a diplomat and political scientist who I never found super hot,
but Babet did, who served as a US Secretary of State.
Sean Connery enlisted in the Navy, did you know? At
age sixteen and was discharged due to stomach ulcers. He
then went on to work as a nude model for
art students in Scotland. Who's got a favorite Sean?

Speaker 1 (03:04):
It was actually fired because the school ran out of chalk.

Speaker 2 (03:07):
Who Who's got a favorite? Sean Connery? For me, it's
the Rock.

Speaker 3 (03:11):
But that's because I wasn't you know, a big bond.
I was like the Roger Moore era, and like here's Brosnan.

Speaker 1 (03:18):
I think Goldfinger for me?

Speaker 2 (03:19):
Goldfinger, Yeah, I like it.

Speaker 3 (03:22):
I still would have put Robert Redford and Paul Newman
in there for me, because maybe she was trying to
compare them a little bit, maybe to Richard's look.

Speaker 2 (03:31):
But for me, Robert Redford.

Speaker 3 (03:36):
Audie, Audie, if you google, just google Robert Redford, like younger,
he's as hot as Brad Pitt.

Speaker 2 (03:45):
Oh, thank you, thank you for listening.

Speaker 1 (03:47):
He was like Brad Pitt on Broadway.

Speaker 2 (03:49):
He was on Yeah, he was so Brad Pitty.

Speaker 3 (03:52):
And there's that movie where they did together Pitt and Redford,
that Spy Game.

Speaker 1 (03:59):
Hell well, if you're listening, watch Butch casting The Sundance Kid.
Because it's Redford Newman.

Speaker 2 (04:04):

a poster of Robert Redford in my garage office and
I'm I like it.

Speaker 1 (04:15):
Yeah, and and uh Bill Goldman wrote the screenplay and
it doesn't get better than that. Yeah, I mean it
was like the best of all possible world. It's best writer,
best director, best actors. It's like to give it a go, amazing,
you give it.

Speaker 3 (04:28):
I watched The Posidon Adventure, the original one, Towering Inferno.

Speaker 2 (04:34):
Oh my god, we watched Towering Inferno.

Speaker 3 (04:39):
Pretty iconic, and then it kind of fizzles there in
the end.

Speaker 2 (04:41):

Speaker 3 (04:45):
Airport seventy seven Do you remember.

Speaker 1 (04:47):
That one that was? Was that the comedy?

Speaker 3 (04:56):
Yes, And I think it's sort of what's created airplane right,
So I feel like I've watched all the sort of
cheesy oldies.

Speaker 2 (05:03):
I need to watch maybe the good ones.

Speaker 3 (05:05):

Speaker 4 (05:25):
It could use a little bit of polish. But me
and the Fishman have plans to bring back Vaudeville. Rory says, oh,
I'm going to book the Palace Theater Logan and the Fishman.
Abbot and Costello were a comedy duo composed but Abbot
and Luke Costello. Their pattern routine, Who's on First, is
considered one of the greatest comedy routines of all time.
The Palace Theater is a Broadway theater facing Times Square

in New York City. And did you know? Both were
big gamblers and had serious health problems. Abbot suffered from
epilepsy enter for seizure management, while Costello had a near
fatal fight with rheumatic fever.

one point sixty five billion dollars, and who knows how
much Mark Zuckerberg will get for Facebook. Rory says, oh yeah. Comparatively,
Chad Hurley and Steven and Steve Chen were founders of

YouTube alongside jo Ed Curreem. Mark Zuckerberg is the co
founder of Facebook along with his Harvard roommates in two

eight million dollars of share of meta platforms at the
end of twenty twenty three and didn't know. At the
age of twelve, Mark built a messaging tool for his

father called Zucknet that improved communications for dentists and another.

on more important factors.

didn't find the Bing Crosby album I wanted. It's with
his son Gary. It's a song called when you and
I were young Maggie Blues and when Grandpa hears that,

he sings along and says I always wanted to be
a crooner. Bobby Short was a cab ra singer and

his scores finding success on Broadway and in Hollywood films.

Yes? Yeah, yeah, he borrows from that krooner era.

Speaker 2 (10:36):
Yeah he does.

Speaker 1 (10:37):
The style of singing reached its heights in the forties
to late sixties, and I guess you know that's how
Sinatra started out as a creel.

Speaker 3 (10:45):
Like early in my career, I met Bobby Short. I
might be making that up, but something makes me think
I did.

Speaker 1 (10:51):

Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence.
