My name is Tammi, and here with me is Olivia…   OLIVIA (sounds as if she’s on phone all through episode) Hello! (smiles) Though in reality, we are just finishing our conversation from the final episode.   TAMMI That’s right. Only, now I’m in charge! (evil laughter)   OLIVIA (laughs) All right. So what are we doing?   TAMMI Well, this is our very last episode. And you’ve talked a little about this, but… Has it been like you expected? This podcasting business?   OLIVIA Yeah, no. Not at all. Think I’ve said before that I didn’t expect very much. I didn’t really do this to communicate with the listeners, and yet that has been the most brilliant part of it.   TAMMI In what way?   OLIVIA Just… Getting people’s reactions to things. Listeners getting invested in my life, and in what I say… Also thanks to the podcast, I feel like I understand my parents better. It’s hard to stay really angry when you sympathize, you know? And I’ve got in touch with Mike, that would have never happened without the podcast, and without the help of listeners.   TAMMI Yeah, that is pretty cool. I wanted to ask you about that actually – what kind of contact do you see yourself having with Mike in the future?   OLIVIA We’ve sent some e-mails back and forth since we were there. I like him. And I like Scott too. But, you know, time will tell. I guess I wanted Mike to be the answer to all my problems (slight laugh) and he can’t be that. Of course he can’t. Also now everything’s out in the open with my parents and I don’t really feel that need anymore. Maybe we can visit Mike and Scott again when we fly back from Auckland in July?   TAMMI Yeah! And maybe stay a few days and see some more of Melbourne?   OLIVIA That would be great. So, yeah. I don’t know what we’ll be to each other. He’s definitely not my dad!   TAMMI Nope, that’s pretty clear.   OLIVIA Right. I have a final recording to play, you want to do that now?   TAMMI Yes! Tell us about it.   OLIVIA So I believe this is their final production. They were doing Sophocles’ Antigone. Do you know the story?   TAMMI Only very vaguely.   OLIVIA The drama school director explains it pretty well in the recording, but it’s a Greek tragedy about Antigone (an-TIG-uh-nee), played by Kat, who wants to rebel against the king, and in this scene she is telling her sister Ismene (is-MAY-nee), played by Jess, about what she wants to do.   TAMMI OK. Sounds complicated.   OLIVIA We should just listen, it makes pretty good sense.   TAMMI All right, here we go.   Scene B4:2   (dramatic music)   DIRECTOR You sit there, Jess, and Kat, you’re coming in from stage left… (Rustle of scripts) Good. Whenever you’re ready.   KAT (as ANTIGONE) (stiff, trying to do RP) Now you know, and you’ll quickly demonstrate whether you are nobly born, or else a girl unworthy of her splendid ancestors.    JESS (as ISMENE) (stiff, trying to do RP) O my poor sister, if that’s what’s happening, what can I say that would be any help to ease the situation or resolve it?    DIRECTOR Right, stop there, please. You’re both getting stuck on the accent and forgetting the story. Let’s just work out… What is going on in this scene?   KAT Um, Antigone (an-TIG-uh-nee) wants to bury her brother.   JESS And she wants Ismene (is-MAY-nee) to help.   DIRECTOR And what are they to each other?   KAT Sisters.   DIRECTOR Yes – and, at this point, well, they only have each other. Their parents are dead, their brothers have just killed each other, they are shocked and scared and in a very tenuous position. Their uncle is now king, and, well, they don’t know what will happen to them. And right here, right now, Antigone suggests something that is completely unthinkable to Ismene. You see, this…   This is that scene. So, y’know, stop worrying about the accents and get the emotions right.   JESS Still want me to do a British accent?   DIRECTOR Yes – but don’t worry about it too much. Y’know, an accent, you can tell when it’s shite, right? (laughs)   JESS All right.   DIRECTOR Right. (claps hands) From the top. Whenever you’re ready. Impress me. (under breath) Emotion – emotion – emotion…   (Rustle of scripts)   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Now you know, and you’ll quickly demonstrate whether you are nobly born, or else a girl unworthy of her splendid ancestors.    JESS (as ISMENE) O my poor sister, if that’s what’s happening, what can I say that would be any help to ease the situation or resolve it?   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Think whether you will work with me in this and act together.   JESS (as ISMENE) In what kind of work? What do you mean?   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Will you help these hands take up (struggles to pronounce the name) Polyneices’…   DIRECTOR Polyneices – Polyneices, poly-whatever-his-name-is… Right, OK, good. Now. We can stop there. Better. Kat, before next rehearsal I want you to work a bit on the accent – doesn’t have to be perfect, but get rid of as much of your own accent as you possibly can.   KAT OK.   DIRECTOR Great. Don’t worry about it now, though. (thinks) You’re both a bit stuck, aren’t you… We need to do something to get those jaws unclenched… Got it! Kat, go stand in that corner. Go go go go!   KAT O-K. (footsteps)   DIRECTOR And Jess, you go in that corner. Quick quick quick, choppy-choppy, hoppy-hoppy, good, right…   JESS Right. (footsteps, distant, calls) Hi Kat!   KAT (distant, calls) Hello Jess!   DIRECTOR Now, don’t worry about the accents, don’t worry about the emotions, just make sure the other can hear you clearly, right?   JESS So… you mean we should yell?   DIRECTOR No, more like, project your voice all the way across the room so your message will be heard.   JESS Yeah.   DIRECTOR Right. Now I only want you to use those first lines – “Now you know…” Kat and “O my poor sister..” Jess, and y’know, just, really throw them across the room, over and over.   KAT Both at the same time?   DIRECTOR Yes. All right. Ready?   KAT and JESS Yes!   DIRECTOR Go!   KAT (as ANTIGONE) (same time as JESS, calling over and over) Now you know, and you’ll quickly demonstrate whether you are nobly born, or else a girl unworthy of her splendid ancestors.    JESS (as ISMENE)  (same time as KAT, calling over and over) O my poor sister, if that’s what’s happening, what can I say that would be any help to ease the situation or resolve it?   (Lines repeated 4 times, some minor giggling from KAT and JESS)   DIRECTOR Thank you, thank you, that’s good. Feeling less stiff now are we? Yes, it’s what I say to all the boys… Right, Kat, sit down next to Jess over here on “Think whether…” and then take both her hands in yours on “Will you help these hands…”   KAT (scribbles in her script) OK.   DIRECTOR And start from “Think whether…” and just put all the emotions in there, just cram them in, and… Start when you’re ready.   (KAT and JESS get into position, rustle of scripts.)   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Think whether you will work with me in this and act together.   JESS (as ISMENE) In what kind of work? What do you mean?   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Will you help these hands take up Polyneices’ corpse and bury it?    JESS (as ISMENE) What? You’re going to bury Polyneices, when that’s been made a crime for all in Thebes?   KAT (as ANTIGONE) Yes. I’ll do my duty to my brother— and yours as well, if you’re not prepared to. I won’t be caught betraying him.   JESS (as ISMENE) You’re too rash. Has Creon not expressly banned that act?                                 KAT (as ANTIGONE) Yes. But he’s no right to keep me from what’s mine.   DIRECTOR Right, thank you. Yes, that’s more like it. Haha! Well done! Now, I suggest very strongly we go to the pub for a debrief, and…   (dramatic music )   Scene B4:3   TAMMI So, this is it – our final Tammi’s Takeover, and the last episode ever of Y2K podcast.   OLIVIA Yeah. (beat) Maybe…   TAMMI (laughs) Maybe? I thought you said you were all done?   OLIVIA I did say that.   TAMMI So?   OLIVIA Maybe there is more.   TAMMI More of what?   OLIVIA (laughs) More to say. More of a story to tell.   TAMMI You enjoy being cryptic, don’t you?   OLIVIA (laughs) No! But… I don’t know yet. I just think there might be another story to tell. Or a few. (pause)   TAMMI And that’s all you’ll say?   OLIVIA That’s all.   TAMMI Will you at least tell me afterwards?   OLIVIA I will.   TAMMI All right. So, listeners, wonderful Patreon supporters, I suppose you will just have to stay tuned to our social media and our feed for some sort of announcement. Right?   OLIVIA Yes.   TAMMI So all that’s left now is to say thank you so much for listening, thank you so much for your support, and – stay tuned?   OLIVIA Yes. Thank you so much. You cannot know how much your support means to us. So… Bye for now!   TAMMI Bye!   (Outro credits)   (Bloopers)   (OUTRO MUSIC)
