Ep. 117 Larry Dorf: Adnan Syed, Morally Dubious Podcasters, a Prison Sentence Game Show and 2 Documentaries

TheModernMoron podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 28, 2022 24:59


Welcome to another episode of The Modern Moron… my guest is producer, writer, actor Larry Dorf, yes, that Larry Dorf.  We have a very light early fall chat about a few subjects, namely:  We talk a little about some of the Modern Moron's more successful shows, one being on Phil Hendrie and his mastery of deception with his characters improvising with each other and his work on various animation projects from King of the Hill to Rick and Morty.   I refer to a story Larry told about an audition he had where he was being asked to play NBA legend Larry Bird's father, a story I will get to next time.  I'm sort of giving you this conversation backwards and here's why. Larry Brings up Adnan Syed, who has been released from prison after doing 20 years for a murder he did not commit.  His story was made famous by a podcast called “Serial” which was developed by “This American Life” that you know from NPR.  The podcast “Serial” is owned however, by The New York Times. You already know I'm a moron, so you won't be surprised to find that I am way late to the party on damn near everything and such is the case with the show “Only Murders In The Building”, which is a show about a podcast about a murder.  It's on Hulu and is into production of it's 4th season and I'm told that the show was based on the real podcast “Serial”.  I didn't realize how much… you hear that?  That's the theme music of the podcast “Serial” about Adnan Syed… And this… is the theme song to the Hulu series, “Only Murders in the Building”... Jezz, they could have at leas changed the key it's played in right? This brings up a subject I've been wanting to get to for some time and it's the concept of the Morally Dubious Podcaster.  It probably has other names, but i found an article with that phrase and I thought, “Morally Dubious?  Modern Moron”  They're synonymous. I read an article, have an unqualified opinion about it, say it into a microphone, bam; Morally dubious podcaster.  Only I'm not a celebrity and I don't have guests who are celebrities so, there's only the two of you listening and it works out about the same, just on a much, much smaller scale.  Plus I'm not pretending to try and crack a cold case or find a murderer.   So, Larry explains to me the case of Adnon Syed, and I'm oblivious as you can hear… like a typical old man, I can't seem to get the story straight…  Then Larry turns this into a potential gameshow along the lines of, “How much prison time would you do for a million dollars?”   This is what Hollywood people do for a living. We join our conversation basking in the glory of the first episode Larry did with us called “The Mystery of Mike Tyson” referring to the Adult Swim Animated series “Mike Tyson Mysteries” which is still our most downloaded episode.  Until this one…  CLOSE - And that, friends, is how a game show is created…  in South Korea.  Isn't that a little like the show “Squidgame”?  I couldn't stick with that show… it was too sad and dark for me.  I have enough of that crap running around in my head without watching a tv show about it.   Now that I've had two seconds to think about it, I would not do any time in a prison for any amount of money.  The subculture that goes on in prison is not something I want to pretend like I could tolerate even for a minute.  I did look up some of the lovely prisons both in California and across the country.  Pelican Bay and San Quentin are both nasty, gnarly prisons and so is the downtown county jail in Los Angeles.  Other residences I would not spend a minute in for any amount of money is the ADX, also known as the SuperMax in Colorado.  One article I read on the internet-so-it's-true… says that the structure is built in a way that inmates never see a guard or another prisoner.  I don't know if it's true, I don't want to know, I just trust that I don't want to go there.  Throw in Sing, Sing and Rikers Island in New York, and a few of the prisons in the deep south like The Holman Correctional Facility in Alabama and it just makes me want to be a law abiding citizen.  Why am I going on and on about prisons?  Well, I see in the news recently that a real sweetheart of a guy named Steve Bannon has been recommended to spend four months in prison for contempt of congress.  Hmm.  I wonder if one of the neighborhoods I just mentioned might be a good place for him?  Is anyone else thinking of the movie Deliverance right now?  Does anyone see a similarity between Ned Beaty's character and Steve Bannon?...  A couple of housekeeping items I'd like to pass along starting with two documentaries I'd like to recommend..  The first one is called “A Trip to Infinity” on Netflix.  I found it fascinating, I've watched it twice and am currently forcing my daughter to watch it in 10 minute increments.  Mathematicians, Cosmologists and physicists contemplate the concept of infinity… and it's broken up into different chapters: Infinity is very small, it's very large,infinity as a number in an equation, that the speed of light is both very fast and also very slow, that a circle is actually a polygon with an infinite number of points and in terms of time, infinity is a very very long time and that if you put an apple in an air tight box and wait for infinity years, that apple will eventually morph into anything and everything you could possibly imagine.  Even live versions of Rick and Morty.  So I highly recommend “A Trip to Infinity.” The other documentary is called “All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records”.  This subject matter is perfect for our demographic!  I'm sure you spent hours in Tower Records going up and down the isles looking at the amazing Album art that we took for granted then.  Isle after isle until you decided which album you were going to plunk down five dollars and change for, and then I think seven or eight and change and then I lost track.  But that was an important purchase.  And then I would have to sneak by the living room with my bright yellow and red plastic bag hoping my parents wouldn't ask me what I got.  They never did, but if my dad knew I was buying Cheech and Chong, Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy albums?  No way.   And we also had Tower Books and Tower Posters across the street which was actually a head shop where you got everything from bongs to rolling paper to posters of fruits and vegetables doing disgusting things, incense, trippy candles with psychedelic waxes, macrame'd hanging plant holders… Tower records was the best.  The documentary is available on YouTube and I believe right now you can stream it for free.  It's a great documentary.  The only woman who made it as an executive at Tower back in the 70's put it best when she said that whatever Tower records was the one you went to, you thought it was the first Tower Records they ever had.  The documentary is directed by Tom Hanks' son Colin and he does a great job bringing the nostalgia of Tower Records back, whether you found their store in San Francisco on Columbus Avenue or the one on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Greenwich Village in New York or wherever you grew up, there was probably a Tower Records where you hung out. Elton John, Bruce Srpingsteen and Dave Grohl, who also worked at a Tower Records in Seattle, all reminisce about how special it was to roam the isles of a Tower Records.  Hanks also does a good job of not letting the documentary end on a downer, even though the internet and a little thing called Napster caused the Tower to crumble, the Japanese stores became independent and are still huge today.  Okay sports fans, that's it, enjoy post season baseball, college football and lots of Halloween candy!  We'll see you next time on the Modern Moron and… the old man show at the oldman-dot-show.

Rikers is a pretrial detention center and while people await their day in court, the conditions at the island are simply inhumane due to violence, overcrowding and inadequate medical care. Rikers is scheduled to close in 2027 but at the rate we're going, eighty more people might die on the island before the jail is shut down. How do we untangle this culture of perpetual violence at Rikers? And could an intervention called a federal receivership make conditions more humane for the people who live there? Host Travon Free uncovers why a receivership might be the only solution that could actually make things better for people right now.  The Untold Story is a Lemonada Media original and is presented by Campaign Zero.

Forensic psychiatrist, violence expert, Editor of "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” and World Mental Health Coalition President Dr. Bandy Lee joins Zerlina on the show to discuss her early warnings about Trump and the resulting backlash.Dr. Bandy Lee is a medical doctor, a forensic psychiatrist, and a world expert on violence who taught at Yale School of Medicine and Yale Law School for 17 years before transferring recently to Columbia and Harvard. She became known to the public by leading a group of mental health professional colleagues in breaking the silence about the immediate past U.S. president's dangerous psychology and publishing the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” (Macmillan, 2017 and 2019). The volume proceeded from an ethics conference she organized at Yale School of Medicine, which led to her consulting with over 50 members of the U.S. Congress. She is currently president of the World Mental Health Coalition, the largest professional organization to address the problem of dangerous leadership and its contribution to a ‘psychological pandemic.' During medical school, she obtained an additional divinity degree to expand her understanding of the human condition. Trained at Yale and Harvard Universities, she was chief resident at Massachusetts General Hospital and a research fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health.  At Yale Law School, she taught clinical courses covering the mental health aspects of asylum law, criminal justice, and veteran legal services.  Her clinical practice consists of psychiatric services at maximum-security prisons and in state hospitals, in addition to working as an expert witness for civil and criminal courts.  At Yale College, she was a popular professor who taught the Global Health Studies course, “Violence: Causes and Cures.” Most recently, she accepted the invitation to co-found an institute on violence prevention at Union Theological Seminary with multiple world experts in the field. She served as Director of Research for the Center for the Study of Violence (Harvard, U. Penn., N.Y.U., and Yale), co-founded Yale's Violence and Health Study Group at the MacMillan Center for International Studies, and has led an academic collaborators project for the World Health Organization's Violence Prevention Alliance, helping to translate scholarship into implementation and to support research in low- and middle-income countries.  She has consulted with governments on prison reform and community violence prevention, such as for France, Ireland, Alabama, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York.  She has also played a key role in initiating reforms at Rikers Island, a correctional facility in New York City known for extreme levels of violence. She authored what is considered the most comprehensive textbook on the subject to date, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures” (Wiley-Blackwell, 2019) and published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and chapters, 17 edited scholarly books and journal special issues, and over 300 op-eds in outlets such as the Guardian, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Independent, and Politico.  The World Mental Health Coalition is an educational organization that assembles mental health experts to collaborate with other disciplines for the betterment of public mental health and public safety.  It attempts to step in where the psychiatric establishment failed in societal leadership, or profited (as did the American Psychiatric Association) by protecting powerful political figures over the public. Her current goals center around educating the public on mental health matters so as to empower it through knowledge and enlightenment. She owes great debt to her maternal grandfather, Dr. Geun-Young Lee, a renowned physician who helped reconstruct South Korea after the war, and to her mother, Dr. Inmyung Lee, who continued to practice his philosophy in the United States, a country she adopted and loved for its historic ability to place principles above tribal factions and narrow self-interest.

It’s another action-packed week for Serious Trouble! On today’s episode, we talk about former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg’s plea deal that will send him to Rikers Island for about three months for tax crimes — and won’t involve testifying against Donald Trump personally. We look at the legal fight over the sealing of the application for the Mar-a-Lago search warrant, and at Trump’s… filing, of sorts, demanding the return of “his” documents and the appointment of a special master to weed out any potentially privileged materials, instead of a taint team that he considers to be tainted. Plus, we talk about Trump’s difficulties in retaining A-list legal counsel, and we apologize to a listener for doubting that he’s served on 15 juries in his lifetime.

A frank discussion on the subject of the Netflix docu-series Bad Vegan. One-on-one coercive control is what this story was about! Sarma co-founded Pure Food and Wine restaurant in NYC and founded the raw vegan brand, One Lucky Duck. The series failed utterly by not explaining how predators operate, or how hypnosis can be used to elicit obedience and induce amnesia. In this case, large sums were drained from Sarma's business, and both she and her predator were jailed at Rikers Island, prosecuted as if both had criminal intent. This episode is for anyone wishing to understand how an educated, intelligent woman's business and life were obliterated via years-long grooming and mind control.
