Speaker 1 (00:00):
I Am all in you.

Speaker 2 (00:16):
I Am all in with Scott Patterson, an iHeartRadio podcast.

Speaker 1 (00:20):
Everybody Scott Patterson, I Am all In Podcast Pop Culture
episode Season seven, Episode seven, French Twist. The Yale Daily
News team has gathered to thank Rory for her time
as editor in chief. Bill to Rory Roy, thank you
very much. I didn't write a speech or anything, although
I could recite, recite the Charge of the Light Brigade
or the lyrics to Rebel Rebel. The Charge of the

(00:43):
Light Brigade is an eighteen fifty four narrative poem by
Alfred Lloyd Tennyson. Rebel Rebel is a song by the
incomparable David Bowie from the album Diamond Dogs, which that
is an album cover that disturbed me and my friends
Beck in the day. Did you know? The song has
been described as Bowie's farewell to the glam rock movement

(01:06):
that he helped initiate, and what a song it is.
We'll get right back to pop culture. After these messages.

Speaker 3 (01:19):
Lane is freaking out about telling her mother she's pregnant,
and Zach distracts her with a photo and Zack says, WHOA,
you know what? This picture is our first album cover.
It was the ultrasound picture and Lisa's Zack, and Zack says, yeah,
it's like a prenatal never Mind. Never Mind is the
second studio album created by the rock band Nirvana. It

(01:39):
was their first release on a major label and the
first to feature the drummer Dave Grohl, who is now
the lead singer of Foo Fighters. The album cover shows
a naked baby boy swimming underwater with a dollar bill
on a fish hook just out of his reach.

Speaker 4 (01:52):
Did you want to bring this up? But is this
the picture that this kid keeps suing them?

Speaker 2 (01:56):
Yes?

Speaker 3 (01:57):
Yeah, exactly. Hopefully Lane's kids won't sue her. But did
you know Kurt Cobaine conceived the idea no pun intended
while watching a television program on water birds.

Speaker 4 (02:09):
I believe it, and they should have used a kid
they knew, always a better way to go.

Speaker 2 (02:13):
Laura Li and Christopher arrived in Paris and just dropped
off Gigi with Sherry. Laura I says, yeah, she seems
grounded and sincere I couldn't believe how prepared for Gigi
she was. Christopher says she was. She had her favorite
Madeline book, she knew where the nearest park was, and
did you see she already had a booster seat? Madeline
is a nineteen thirty nine book written and illustrated by

(02:36):
Ludwig Bemelmans. The book is known for its rhyme scheme
and colorful images of Paris. There are a total of
six books, which have also been adapted into a television
series and film. And did you know that each of
the Madeline books? And with the line that's all there is,
there isn't anymore, which comes from Ethel Barrymore Drew Barrymore's

(02:57):
great aunt when she used to rebuff Kurt calls on Broadway.

Speaker 5 (03:02):
Parris believes that since Rory is no longer editor of
the paper, she is going to struggle with so much
free time like she did. Paris says, you know, you
really shouldn't be alone at a time like this. Why
don't you call your Girls Gone Wild friends? They seemed
delightful in a get crazy, drunken cancun and flash your
breast kind of way. Girls Gone Wild was an adult
entertainment franchise created by Joe Francis in nineteen ninety seven.

(03:25):
The videos typically involved camera crews at party locations engaging
young college aged women who exposed their bodies or act
quote unquote wild. Did you know the company that owns
Girls Gone Wild and all its related brands went bankrupt.
Joe Francis to creator fled to Mexico nearly a decade ago.
Amidst all of this, there was some kind of drama.
There's a lot of drama. I mean, and we said

(03:48):
college aged women, but a lot of the drama was
that they weren't even of age. Yeah, yeah, yeah, So
there was a lot of stickiness.

Speaker 4 (03:56):
Stepher and Laura Li fell asleep. I missed third dinner subject,
so now they are trying to go back to bed
to wake up fresh in the morning. So wide awake,
I could watch the Ken Burns documentary of SOD and
not drift off. There are one hundred and four flirt
Elys stenciled on the ceiling. That's how wide awake I am.
I tried humming Brahm's Lullaby in my head, but it

(04:17):
kept morphing into purple rain. And purple rain made me
think of grapes, which made me think of grape jam,
which made me think of English muffins slathered in great
grape jam. This was a particular line I hated because
I thought, that's the witty banter that just wasn't working.
But anyway. Ken Burns is a historian known for his
documentary film.

Speaker 1 (04:35):
Shot I'm sorry, but a great looking shot overhead?

Speaker 2 (04:38):
Yes it was.

Speaker 4 (04:39):
That was great, Yes it was. Many of which Ken's
Burns documentaries discuss American history and culture. Brahm's Lullaby was
written by Johannes Brahms, a German composer and pianist of
the Romantic period. Purple Rain, Come On, Who Doesn't Know?
It's a nineteen eighty four song album and musical drama
film by Prince Did you Know? Purple Rain was originally

(05:00):
written as a country song and intended to be a
collaboration with Stevie Nicks, who was also eleven minutes long,
which frightened Stevie. Did you also know? Nothing Compares to You?
Sinead O'Connor's big hit was written by Prince.

Speaker 1 (05:13):
Think, Yes, that's true.

Speaker 2 (05:15):
Good song.

Speaker 4 (05:16):
Rory is alone in her apartment and calls Olivia, what's
Lucy doing watching Real World?

Speaker 3 (05:22):
Denver?

Speaker 4 (05:22):
Lucy's eating it up with a fork and spoon because
boyfriend's working and you know how much he hates reality TV.
First of all, the fact that they call him boyfriend
is so annoying. Does he Oh, I keep forgetting you
still haven't Matt boyfriend? Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder if
he really exists or if he's just Lucy's snuffle up against.
This banter is awful. The Real World Denver was the

(05:44):
eighteen season of MTV's reality show, which aired from November
two thousand and six to May two thousand and seven.
Mister stuffal Upagus, I've never heard him called mister, but
I know snuffle up Agus is from Sesame Street. He's
sort of like a mammoth mixed with a joke aunt eater.
He is Big Bird's best friend, but is believed to
be imaginary, as Big Bird was the only one to

(06:05):
ever see him. Did you know that? In the early eighties,
producers of Sesame Street feared that if they represented adults
not believing what kids said, they might not be motivated
to tell the truth. This led them to changing the
storyline of the show, which I always heard was at
the time, you know, they really wanted kids to come
forward if they were being abused or mistreated, and so

(06:27):
they changed it so that kids would know if you
tell an adult something's happening to you, they will believe you.
Which yeay, Sesame Street gotta love it, Danielle.

Speaker 2 (06:37):
Do you remember in the last season of Real House
Sives of Orange County when someone called someone else a
snuffle up agains.

Speaker 5 (06:43):
Yeah, this reminded me of that.

Speaker 1 (06:48):
All right, Christopher and Laurela. I find someone with bread.
They attempt to converse with him. Bread guy, funkins.

Speaker 4 (06:58):
Laura.

Speaker 1 (06:59):
I yeah, funny hungry American. Huh, bread Guy.

Speaker 2 (07:02):
Everybody Loves Raymond.

Speaker 1 (07:05):
Everybody Loves Raymond was a sitcom created by Phil Rosenthal,
starring Ray Romano, Patricia heat and Brad Garrett Dorris Roberts.
Did you know Brad Garrett made the headlines in two
thousand and three for staging a walkout on set over
the disparity of pay between cast members. I love that
thanks to his actions, he got a raise from the
network and the entire cast got a piece of the

(07:28):
syndication money.

Speaker 4 (07:29):
Oh funny twist. In a funny twist, Phil Rosenthal, It's
funny that they mentioned Everybody Loves Raymond with the bread
Guy because Phil Rosenthal is now more famous than ever
for Everybody Feed Phil. He goes around. He's got like
books about food, children's books about food, a TV show
about food. So I wonder if Filmore Girls was a

(07:50):
bit fortuitous.

Speaker 1 (07:52):
With Susan franch.

Speaker 2 (07:56):
All right, we.

Speaker 4 (07:56):
Didn't even talk about that. Your last name's French.

Speaker 3 (08:01):
But it's English. It's English. Friend anyway, Sure, okay, Rory, Lucy,
and Olivia are sitting on loralized porchs with vinegar and
tinfoil in their hair. Lucy says, boyfriend's got great hair.
Olivia says, oh, the best. It's like beyond human. Rory says,

(08:24):
like Conan O'Brien's. Lucy says, no, it's just like really full.
It's more like a cartoon character. Yeah, it's like Snap's
hair from Snap, Crackle and Pop. Wait am I thinking
of Crackle.

Speaker 4 (08:36):
In this scene? I'm so sorry I interrupted.

Speaker 3 (08:38):
That whole section went on way too long.

Speaker 4 (08:42):
Yeah, trying too hard to have witty banter that isn't witty.
Yeah anyway.

Speaker 3 (08:48):
Conan O'Brien is a comedian and television host for late
night talk shows. With a great head of hair, Snap, Crackle,
and Pop are three gnome like elves that are cartoon
mascots of rice crispies. Did you know that In the
early nineteen fifties there was a fourth elf named Paw,
but he was later dropped.

Speaker 2 (09:05):
Wait why showed.

Speaker 4 (09:09):
PHOTOO cracked more money?

Speaker 1 (09:13):
H Yeah, he was Brad Garrett's inspiration.

Speaker 5 (09:18):
Lorelai is reflecting on how happy and grateful she gets
to be in Paris with Christopher. Christopher says, we can
sleep all day and wander the town in the night.
And that stuff we did back in the hotel room,
we can definitely do that back in stars Hollow. Lorelai says,
are you saying We'll always have Paris? We'll always have Paris?
Is a famous line in the nineteen forty two drama Casablanca.

(09:39):
The line refers to the romance Lisa and Rick shared
while they were in Paris and did you know The
line has also been used in countless films, books, and
TV shows, including Star Trek, The Next Generation.

Speaker 2 (09:52):
Lucy and Olivia show Rory They're forbidden Fjords dresses, Olivia says,
two halloweens ago, Lucy and I went to a party
and Don without Tony Orlando. Tony Orlando and Don is
a pop music group from the nineteen seventies and did
you know Tony Orlando had several songs co authored by
Carol King, including Halfway to Paradise and I Can't Stop

(10:15):
Talking About You.

Speaker 4 (10:16):
Lucy and Olivia are telling Marty about visiting Stars Hollow,
you expect Professor Harold Hill to move there and sucker
everyone into buying band instruments. Harold Hill is the main
character in the musical The Music Man. The role was
originated by Robert Preston, but many more Hollywood actors have
played the character, from Dick Van Dyke, Matthew Broderick, Jeff Goldwim,

(10:37):
Eric McCormick, and Hugh Jackman. The nineteen sixty two movie
starred Robert Preston, was filmed on the Warner Brothers lot
in the same area of our own Stars follow.

Speaker 1 (10:48):
Dunna Day and that brings us to the end of
this pop culture episode. We'll see you next time. Thank
you ladies, Susan Sara, Danielle Amy. We will see it

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. 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. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
