If you are a public or well-known person, there are always going to be some people who hate you, and perhaps even try to hurt you. Find out more in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:17 Explanations: 3:07 Fast dialog: 13:55 Ruth: I’m really glad you’re getting so much support from the public. Look at all of these bags of fan mail. Carl: Only about half of that is fan mail. The rest is hate mail. Ruth: Hate mail? Who would send you hate mail? Carl: Lots of people. People who are disgruntled write to me about their grievances. Ruth: Really? Carl: Don’t look so surprised. We’ve gotten bomb threats, and I’ve even received a few death threats. Ruth: Death threats?! Aren’t you worried about your personal safety? Carl: Not really. Most people are just venting and others are trying to intimidate me. I’m not going to buckle under just because I get a few letters. Ruth: But it only takes one mentally unbalanced person to carry through on threats. Have you considered getting a bodyguard? Carl: No, I don’t need any protection. I just need to keep plugging away and getting things done. Ruth: I finally know what to get you for your birthday. Carl: What? Ruth: A bulletproof vest. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
