Episode 1216 - Katey Sagal

2021-04-08 | 🔗

Katey Sagal is known by the public in ways she doesn't see herself. She's known as an actor, but always thought of herself primarily as a singer. She's known as a seminal comedic TV character, even though she didn't think of herself as funny. She's defined by brash, confrontational roles, but sees herself as reserved, even shy. Katey and Marc talk about these contradictions and how they played out in public - on Married... with Children, Sons of Anarchy, her new show Rebel - and in private - in relationships, career stall-outs and struggles with substance abuse.

Anybody who needs help and is openly asking for help stigmatized in this country, made it sort of like a you know: economy in its along the same arc as anti vaccines. It's like you should be able to talk to us.
Why did you should be able to pull yourself up by your bootstraps? You should be able to to add. Not need help. That's but you're, not really sick, you're bodies? Fine, it's you brain, but it's just not true. But decidedly that is still- that is still the deal. And that's one of the reasons that anonymous is anonymous. Your I choose to be public about my sobriety, because I think it helps other people, but a lot of people can't be. Will be judged. Goes on your record, that's one of the reasons that the anonymous you know what I mean you got to keep it to yourself. Unless you want to be public about it to help other people, that's my belief, but in out there in the world, no matter how much of it is out there, no matter how many people know, people who have drug problems there still some part of it that young people look at them is weak or as a problem or is potentially a trouble that may be true, but but either way it should be right.
Recognized is something that people need help with within and accepted as as a sickness anyway all that being said, Katy Cigar was here and we did talk about it, a bit this pod gas dispute Third, by better help, if you're feeling depressed Stir, struggling with relationships or having difficulty sweeping a meeting.

Better health, professional aright did you guys watch that documentary ANA Hbo, MAX or HBO or whatever the fuck. It is what is a cue. Into the storm what a great deal
a documentary. It really was Well done this guy invested, what's this guy's name, Colin HO back, he went, he went in there. Man he saw is easy reserve at the beginning of Q and at the beginning of the of the problem, and he put three years into this figured out the through I figured out the players figured out the effect it had on people and really kind of made. A kind of well rounded, well researched and true doc did not. Infuse himself too much into it. Like so many document carryings, do they become part of it. There ego your needs, the attention and that it becomes half about them. He didn't do that. He was there, his presence was felt anything We crossed the line, except for once and it was for good reason and really added to the drama of the thing, but you do kind of get to the end of the line of this thing and realise that the entire.
Q phenomenon was spearheaded by your most likely. Seemingly this father and son team of nihilistic nerds, who kind of bread the brains of millions of people. And broke the world. The fact that a couple of men, content. With my intentions. Could start sup online and break the fucking world and sort of send thousands hundreds of thousands of people's brain spinning. Wait from them into a direction they the point where they might not get their brains back is sort of daunting and terrifying that it was that easy granted work, man, I'm not saying they're, all powerful People really want to believe things that really want stories that have closure. They want things to be explained. They want their aim you are to be honoured. They want to feel part of something bigger than themselves and you get them angry enough and frost up enough. They'll kill people to realize it, but-
does get to the bottom of it, it makes me think about how do these people that got played by this bullshit feel I mean I know most of them are too proud to admit they got played and probably will just your kind of live off the fumes of the thing and try to pull. What they think is true and real. That has some substantiation, but how does it feel to be that fuck em obviously look man we're all marks. We ve all played by one thing or another, and in that sort of one of the young, the hinges of conspiratorial. Thinking, it's like what are you a mark for What are you? How do you know what you know is real you're? What you base your perception on. What are you thinking? your identity is hanging awarded the facts. Who are you really? What is true really yet now that's the game right, we're all kind of marks, but to see where this went just for thee, this,
power, tripping Guph of a couple of fuckin people who figured it out online and then God Guam dawn to by foul tens of thousands of lost angry people, but also a guy taken advantage of by people who were hip to the power of it? Then they hip Thea the pathological lying pig president and he climbed onto it, used it every kind of fast They involve thing is fascinating that a couple of people expats, father and son team maybe could break the Fuckin world break the brains Dis associate hundreds of thousands of people and so a viral series,

Nice actress she was written to be smaller character, and then the network was like now it's bumper up the surgeries got the the swaggering neo chick. Listen then the swaggering you yeah, which was so great in my career, because I had been so known for comedy that it had been very difficult for people to realise that I'm actually not funny, I'm much more serious than that which is totally the truth, and so he wrote me this great dramatic raw dumb was really it opened? Finally, life changer color yeah work wise, but you grew up

That's our lot about And you are who you were his singing waitress? I was his singing waitress and this was like you at the beginning of kiss. It was there first concert in LOS Angeles whole, never lying at the Santa Monica Civic and thereof, like a long island right here and he was probably like still like a reasonable rock jus at that point up here. Fantastic rock drew the only person I've ever met that never had a drink or a drug. I mean he was wild. He was like straight up business and I was always taken with him. Yes, Well, you know what I'm saying is you met him before he fully gotten degenerate like. I think his bag is sex right. Well, I
was then I don't know his bag still circus. I don't know now, but where you ve gotta come out somewhere, the idea that was his definitely his his jam and I was ass. It turned out that I was in a band at the time with a guy. He went to college with. It was just this weird sort of thing that happened in a city before I knew what we had a record deal. I start making records and then that old records will this. So the banned by first record or tobacco was called the group with no name out a good new horrible terrible Neil Burger idea at Casablanca records. I don't know if you know what I do know that he was the prayer, He was a big guy area, so that happen, and then that didn't happen, and then I was like a singer for higher and I would go back and forth between restraining gene, I did long distance. Yes, I did yes, I I ass, you call it dating right. Do you know her? up here and there for me I was like madly in love, but he was not.
It must be on the road constantly constant later and he sang on record as I did the dead when How did their little so solid records? Yeah yeah, I sang on his solar record yeah about that, I remember those records. I was not a kiss me neither I Didn'T- and it was my age group to ride him go in, I didn't why, because I was in high school then- and I didn't I listen to a lotta rhythm and blues- I had a guy who then, who term yonder robber Johnson when I was in high.

You now the ashes to burn down yearly, Rot had used burned out Oda, but I'd go we often hear TAJ, Mahal and Willie Dixon we're there always hanging out of some guys had residencies yeah. So that's where he started singing with those guys ratura. Now I will I toward without a James I sang with ETA. This after the no name bandit is after the known they are. No heads got no hit got no knock on it. Then we moved to a lecture records, got even less whose their value they storeroom
Let me a yes, I think so, Alan my I mean I don't think you would know any about. You already know any other man. No, I mean the only one that Iraq ended up being a net band was my friend Brian RE, who plays with Paul Macartney he He was in our side bankers. The band was five singers absconded like the Mama's in the pop up blocker and then you know we ended up having a band. I ended up bearing the base player. I mean it goes on. It goes on and on the first, but I was the first husband who taught me about odours rating in our green. I think that's why I'm married those are both good story. Yoke ended, sadly, while not so terrible, but there's bed story in the green story. He added this plane crash rye bread. How did he get in trouble for women through a pot of boiling water on it or not? The other way Oh you know, you know you're right and then he began a reverend yeah got God, because he's out of his mind, yeah music suffered Somehow God doesn't help is up.
Sometimes you gotta turn your back on God and take the tricks ourselves right rose a price to pay. So you weren't debased by italian, better, he did was very. He played in a ban called the sole survivors. Do yellow graduating your heart how's at it, so I married him and so those people they were in that bag. Nobody else he would now and after that I just I was like a singer force for higher. I had bans are trying to get record deals with the rigorous company, oh yeah nation, and a record company. The kind I would say like how we got a girl, it does is unknown, agent. There was no age and at that point, and then I lost my record deal, and so I I remember when I am.

When I say this, it just order happened. I didn't really have acting school and I didn't go. I didn't I didn't train for it. It was more a last minute, like so broke I was so broke that I was like I got just open any door that comes along and I ended up. Do this little musical that these friends of mine Rodya in a garage right? An agent came to see it and they came to see her cause. Pam Adeline was in a family. Was in it with me.

Yet you could work as an actor and I was like oh, oh well, ok, so I just said yes and will help I'm your broke because I was broke because we know that this, nineteen, I wasn't. Soviets was nineteen. Eighty four, but I mean like what you for your term would bedmate were all of the world in the new towards other people.

How about you? then the drugs how bad was I at that point pretty bad I was reading our what it was his blow. It was pills, it was alcohol it was, I was cut. Like a little chemist. I was very hour. What they call high bottom editor forms of I was still functioning in the world should, unlike what are you also in a world that was saturated with drugs, imbues saturate life right. That was the lime. As you know, was until I start working and television, and I realized oh shit. You know I can't stay put four in the morning, I gotta, be there and my first job on television. I ll never forget the woman who was in it was a sober person.
And she would talk about jobs. Just gonna say I'm just gonna say it was with Mary taller, more Ochre and Mary Mary was well known as the Sober Korea and IRAN I went to that job and she would talk about it and I lied or I'd, say your arm silver too, and I'm thinking I'm such a like online. Lears years later she was my eskimo years late I took her out in New York and I told her the truth and I said I have to thank you because You are the reason I ended up in a room.

Ok, you know your your maritime more on your end are here you know, so she was
She was great misuse off some with me, like. I don't even know how to put my face and the light showed come over and lift my chin up, and so here you know, you'd do vision, stolen or which camera mean either or at least a camera left came a right. Unlike wait. What do you mean just raise a hand to just like I started to learn how to say like which where's my camera, so we're. Ok, with which we want to? We ok yeah, I mean in hindsight. I realise that job ended still months over and I just that law. Just go back to my rock and roll minor shot. My days, my real job, and in so doing the background of again now I got married with children like an almost within three months. All I got so that's it! That's what happened. I I love that job within irey here and then she got bad weather oil. What's what is the? What does that mean? well, I mean what, for what is that look like?

Of course, and were of course I want ya, got it got pretty got you know it just got back
I just got like I would get, which is like a daily thing here, aren't good here on an island. It's kind of new. I knew from early on that that some here that this is not good, there. You can control that. I couldn't controller, that's what I now and so what who got? You wouldn't how'd. You end up victor over the log cabin logger. Actually Yucca was my first make she spider broke.

Looking for shock, who was already in the Kolocha opened up. Spider and I am I gonna walk down there, a bunch of people. I knew what they were like, oh you're. Finally, here we ve been even those in I just thought: what are they? I wonder if he wears a fighter.
Sit down shut up, you know those through the early sobriety, sit down, shut up, washes coffee cup, don't say anything and I just heard stuff in and then is kept going on. I think I was still looking for your family friends there that ideal. I haven't, I learned I'm sure they wouldn't let you leave after the war plus you know I mean I knew I knew it. I knew it was you now dark it. It's you Now. Gentlemen alliance, can you go through that we're just jangled overtime? You know and your prayers God, please get me Through this one area, the worst, the way it is dead, he became sweep. You can't sleep, you can't do worst. So then till there I am observer and then and then you go for good and then I started working worrisome actor them my whole sort of that was two months sober when I started work on merit with show how'd you get a job, turn audition. I mean my eight by this time. I have an Asia Europe, so she's
and me out. She sends me the scripture does. This is a network that isn't even a network. We got a good shot is no one. I thought all right at my own, because I'm not really I'm not your mainstream actor. Regular, like mania. Because I've never really fit. I still confidant Adam. I am, I feel a gun they fit into the actor community, so much an auditor off and then I really didn't. Then I was just out, so I went in and audition and war. Funny closing I don T always there and we got there were like you, I had a pair yeah yeah Eddie, I'm just not on no add, but he's a super regular do has just set out actor rewrite and we got on great, so How much of the characters? Your creation, I cow? Is it written verses
I think it was written. More to be slovenly, knows, rose to be like Rosanna, Joan SAM Kennison outward or who are adored, and I thought now and when I read it, I really thought no. They have to have some going on. Two people have not been married either, so they have to have either a great sex life, something's gone on so I'd die, sexy rob I went in and all you know like dolled up in Algeria, kind of like fifty house why, right away little tight, dress visually, defining part of the show? Well they liked it. Like the head on it, oh yeah, I mean it was always my thing like. If these people are gonna fight- and you know she- you know something has to be Can you Madge? Can you believe what a lightning rod that show was at that time, unbelievable how defined that network we have referred to this day. In that event, For your show, like the Simpsons, probably would have happened, but it was ultra lightning rod. Can you imagine
such an innocent time were met. It would? Children was the lightning, rod the cultural lightning. We were all stunned. I mean, I think you know, for the first three years, you couldn't even get it unless you had like rabbit ears on your tv. You know if I asked you don't get fucked and so we don't even know. If successful, we knew nothing and the right kind of at an I ll. Never forget. We went on some tour of bowling alleys or I don't know they sent us out on some like some and everybody was relating. Alan we'd get fan mail, saying. Ah, my family is just like that or I live next door to those people or Bob, and I thought oh wow. This is really people are. This is like regular people worry caricature of a certain type of America, yet it really really was and belong to flows. People wondered MIKE Pegs clothes minimums whose why it could land on either side the people that got the joke and the people that were the joke, o totally and enabled at hated the joke, and then do you know
who stood our ratings as they kept trying to get us off the air right right. The when it was more mostly lefties, right, Now, as one moment I ll never forget we centre flowers. Every year, her name was Terry, were Coulter and terror The rapporteur wrote this whole thing about. You know her kid camp what you know. This is not ok for children, so about show was right to get us off the air currents, yellow version, exaggerating here and all I did was got us on the front of the New York Times, and you know it doubled our audience as she was right here. They loved aggravated yeah and really do so whatever with great rhinos along run I'll you, you must have major pretty rich yeah, I got pretty richer and then I got pretty. Or to cause. I am, then I got divorced him. Why? What so? When did you start having kids I started: having kids when I was on married with children. My first
child I lost. It was really another said. You know I got sad stories I had a still born child and they had written it into the to the serious and then I lost that baby, and so that was horrible. So they made her lover. After that, I went on to have my two older kids and I was pregnant on the show and then they would send me home and pay me they were so like, just go more laid out in order to take the risk, I'm so is a great honour. Their movements so brutal to have that expectation then have to go to sleep at night was horrible really really heartbreaking, but I was but look at a time when we have the Vienna these amazing to older kids- and I have that had happened. I wouldn't have anything. You know how sir you show in the devil you were there? You were the one with the money that would happen D ass worst. It was hard and this was the first husband the baseline has. This is the drama
The tremor ivy, who I only have kind things to say about now, because two kids with him. You kids with honour, I wouldn't have them without him so and you guys get along the kids get along Boethius everybody, ok, everybody that's right, you now, eventually, eventually you took its taken some time, but eventually yeah and you ended on your feet, landed on my feet. Somebody said to me we're about money in Algeria? money laundering, to one when my when I went through the divorce from that woman, see right when you start talking about it. It comes like it through and I'm way over, but the point being yes people said: don't worry about the money, my Keaton, I got nothing, go we and and I landed a mafia. You learned anything I don't know that's gonna, how I I certainly my life like that now to I just sort of fear Like well, this look
like the serious thing they could ever happen. However, I've I've a mere before, and then it wasn't the shittiest thing that's ever happen. So maybe maybe I'm gonna look at it that way what I'd start realises that none of its unusual, it's something humans. Through no matter what it is right, there's nothing there, gonna happen. You that's can be like. That's never happened to a human power, absolutely and there's something comforting about that. They really night goes from going broke to getting sick to death, whatever all of it and also goes to you know. The thing that you think is impossible to accomplish year. If you can find that one person, that's done it right, and that means you can do to show. But so there is something to be said about. Acknowledging their limitations again, not gonna be an astronaut allowance and I now think that comes with age. I fix thank you now lie bids ale, helpful busy. I wish you could do it recommend AIDS people. Do it yeah. If you of talent, understand what and how to use it. So it doesn't.
Strangle you from the inside. You know I know, but How do you avoid if you're creative not being strangled front I find it all. I began. Al Qaeda goes here that some things I can't understand here too the self loving thing in and how that becomes an engine. I don't, I don't quite understand don't like when people think that you do it on purpose, cause it's like Why would anyone do that? Why would anyone nurture that why this idea? if you're just like that, you can we create MIKE. I believe me now. I do not I don't want to be like this. Now I mean it's it's. The whole, you know it's like trying to turn your head off in arms like. I, don't want to think that much I've gotten better man. Do you met a day? I I I am an inconsistent meditated. I bet you honestly: have you been
sitting right. I didn't do it for years righteous started like for five months ago. That's not what kind of do you out of breath? I do Andy. Biddle dummy go I'll fuck. Head space out, oh yeah yeah. I had come to the third person didn't constantly. I should listen. I went to a future, as is guided issues to guided breath meditation rat, there's no visuals its counting breaths staying in the breath when thoughts come get back to the breath. That's it do you do it more than once a day like today, fifteen minutes. Ok, that's great to see our to a teacher who said to me you have to do this twice a day for twenty minutes. I would like to emphasize tat and I could I've done that consistently for periods of time and then I can't and then them I said grew up. My unexpected unama expectation is like all of I can't do it twice a day, I'm just not going to do it all, and so that stressed this, that's the only thing I'm learning from at all. During this thing, this lockdown, whatever we ve all been through is like, if I don't have this routine prime
I don't like now I get up like I started doing like five son salutation about ten benefit yoga and that I do the meditation every day, but also work out with a train of three times. We can hide twice a week, some like on. Why would I do it? Even when I wake up it's like that thing about when he first gets over, you make your bed I still do it like I get up to today and like maybe I'll just put the meditation of it and then and then I'm doing it I'm doing the very like that voice is secondary. Now I love that right, do you feel better or do you feel enter like I did it right he again re that's a lot of it. I don't know what the meditation is doing for me. I think, it's a cumulative effects. I mean to me what I was under. What I understand and what I ve experienced is that We spend their time observing your thoughts right. That's what meditation is. Will you do so? You have learned TAT when you in your brain, exactly that's happening right where
the difference. We mind in brain right here. Then you don't attach so much to all those crazy thoughts. What striking, I believe that all thing about feelings are aren't thoughts or whatever that are in fact bit but like that, I still have problems with that. They kind artifacts. They may not. You may now that the thoughts go with feelings may not the greatest and you might not want to act on them by your feelings of feelings, but, like I think it's right that sober thing to wear it, just sort of the neck right thing like yours that trick of getting into the present we rule to realize that I've known this for a long time, but I don't think I've known it is deeply since I meditated most of what you reacting to your brain is making up for one reason or another, completely united? You have much control over that, but you can with meditation separate it right more successfully. I have a friend This is a big meditated. We always tells me that the brain is the brains. Purpose is to tell you to turn right and then to turn LAO
trying to get you know, go when the light is green rife and we we assign all these other things to the brain. The brain is not to figure out all the stuff that we try to figure out. You say that all the time I just got to figure out, I just got to figure this out. I just got to figure it out, and it's so fucking dumb Norway the world's done well, and then you know that's the whole deal figure out o figuring out is not a step, is not enough. Yeah and then there's just eat the paranoia. The resentment journey now worried you strike it comes out of nowhere. I am grateful as falconers. I everything's fine everything. If I might, I cannot sit with that. Even during this fuckin locked out. Everyday. My nature is to get up and go like a fuck. I got a what? What do you have to do? Nothing? What do you? What do you does nothing
What's an alcoholic respect, you know if you really believe that alcoholism lives in your brain, which is really what it is. The substances aren't really what it's about the alcoholic thinking here for so thus anywhere else. You, oh here it says. Oh boy, it's You know you wake up just like here. We here we go out and then you now you now through the process of recovery, I'll pay. You never stops. That's what I've learned. I don't think that initial sort of it's my twenty second year, yes, You just learn how to manage it. That's my experience. Learn how to not yet some it, but you know it happened. So is like you re, you do deep. We realise and understand that some shit just is not that important and that's the relief of age and sobriety? Is that like now it's like what the fuck was I worked up about. I give you think back and other insanity like this stupid
I mean I used to really yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah relationships and work. Those are my those are my big insane. I mean you know, try the figure out what s and this is going to happen. I mean nothing as you know, it's like you, too, what's funny when people say to you, how do you mean those career decisions. How did you plan to do blah blah blah and your dress? I argue what do you mean? I don't lay at any rate, I don't know, what's gonna happen to my right, you know somebody offers you with this and you take it. Oh, it's really annoying by the sea to your pen has actually trying to hide your desperation. Exactly that's what I answered. I filter but, like I e a relation like I'm for six years ago, I I asked to amend We owe person to marry me well like I would like I never realized a depth of that micro dependency. Until I got into a relationship where I could not see it yeah
like everyone around music, Dude Minoan, anything of course right, but I, like I broke up with this woman. I take a restraining order and I got back together with them. Yeah, oh yeah, that she has done not It's not gonna happen and we agreed that stuff. I think when it gets that extreme. I really do think you you, you won and done. I think you learn it Did you really know, then you see? The sign was reviewed, dodged. The fuckin bullet adds to bullet yeah. I remember my second marriage and, like I didn't know how to get out. I didn't know how to, and there was all kind of shit going on and those like, I gotta get out of here and I couldn't get out.

We still in there somewhere the monster, sure o reset kidding. I don't think we lose our defects, I mean that's why You know the benefit of sobriety is the benefit and deed, and the struggle is now you're awake.
