TRANSCRIPT

Tammi's Takeover - Patreon Bonus Episode 3: A *little* uncomfortable

(INTRO MUSIC)

Scene B3:1

TAMMI

Hello and welcome to Tammi’s Takeover – our extra-special show exclusive to Patreon supporters of Y2K! My name is Tammi, and here’s also Olivia...

OLIVIA

Yes, hello!

TAMMI

So, today we are going to be looking at some of the things that have been happening in the podcast so far. I’ll be playing some clips, and you can tell us a little bit about your thoughts and reactions. All right?

OLIVIA

Oh! All right. That makes me a little nervous. 

TAMMI

You’ll be fine. You ready for the first clip?

OLIVIA

(jokingly) No..?

TAMMI

(laughs) I’m playing it anyway! (OLIVIA laughs)

(Clip from episode 3)

OLIVIA

All right. That was pretty emotional. You know, I thought there would be only my Mum and her friend on these files, but other people seem to creep in as well. I haven’t decided yet if I like that or not. Will let you know.

TAMMI

I was listening through the early episodes, and I think this, from episode three, is where you really seemed to grasp the fact that this was not just going to be about Kat and Jess.

OLIVIA

Yeah. That was strange, listening back... I thought it would be pretty mundane, you know. Just two people telling each other their minor daily happenings...

TAMMI

That’s not how it ended up at all!

OLIVIA

No! So many other people turned up in the voicemails, and so many things started happening.

TAMMI

Yes – their lives were certainly eventful. But your life’s been pretty eventful too.

OLIVIA

And yours! We both moved to Auckland after all... And... In the beginning I thought the podcast wouldn’t be about me at all. I would just be the objective narrator of it all, not sharing anything significant about my life.

TAMMI

(smiles) That didn’t really work, did it?

OLIVIA

No! And I think it has to do with the voicemails, somehow, they were so personal and dramatic and everything that I couldn’t stay distanced.

TAMMI

Makes sense. And that sort of leads us to the second clip, from episode twelve:

(Clip from episode 12)

OLIVIA

In a way it’s like they are characters to me at this point. Even though I know they were actual people and of course still are actual people now, twenty years later, this world of theirs, at this time... it’s all *very* different from the people I know. We’re more the same age, and they seem much easier to relate to. I suppose... I always thought of my parents as... not old... but static. Like I’m the kid so I am doing all this growing and changing and they are done with all that. But lately they... are changing things, and changing (hesitates) as people and doing things they never used to do and... well, it freaks me out. They’re supposed to be stable, dammit! (sigh) I know that’s not fair. Or reasonable. (small laugh) But maybe listening to all these voicemails and hearing my mum as a younger, less sure and... unformed version of herself is helping me understand her a little better now as well.

TAMMI

It seems the voicemails have affected how you, like, relate to your parents in the present, as well.

OLIVIA

They did. (sighs) Suppose it’s all a part of growing up, seeing your parents as people rather than... well, parents. And it *has* been helpful. And sometimes really beautiful. But it’s also been hard hearing them so happy in the voicemails when they are... not happy together in the now.

TAMMI

Yes. That must be very disorienting.

OLIVIA

It is! And in a way it is wonderful to have heard them from the time they fell in love, but in another way it is also... painful, yes, and... it makes me question their love then, you know? Knowing it doesn’t last?

TAMMI

Yeah. Twenty years is quite a long time for it to last, though.

OLIVIA

Yes. It is. I know.

TAMMI

So what did you expect to learn from the voicemails?

OLIVIA

At the beginning, nothing really. I didn’t think about it properly, I just thought it would be a fun way to look into the past.

TAMMI

But you were looking for clues about Mike from the start, right?

OLIVIA

I was. But I never thought that the podcast listeners would actually be able to help with that. I hoped they would, of course, but I didn’t believe it.

TAMMI

On that note, here’s our last clip for today:

(Clip from episode 32)

OLIVIA

(emotional but tries to hide it) What did... what did Mike look like?

CASSANDRA

(smiles) Oh, he was a looker! Brown hair, dimples, great smile! (beat, just realizes this) You look a little like him you know.

OLIVIA

(excited and a little embarassed) Oh. Wow. (beat) I only have one dimple, though.

TAMMI

So that was pretty recent – episode 32.

OLIVIA

Wow. Yeah. That was... To hear that I looked like him was... yeah.

TAMMI

Does it feel like you will find him now?

OLIVIA

I don’t know. Trying not to get my hopes up. But Cassie has definitely made me feel like it’s possible.

TAMMI

Yes. I think so too. What would you like to say to him?

OLIVIA

So many things! But it’s more... There are so many things I want to know. 

TAMMI

You should start writing all the questions down so you have them ready to go. 

OLIVIA

Yeah. That’s a good idea. 

TAMMI

So how do you feel after listening to all these clips?

OLIVIA

Um... I haven’t relistened to any of the episodes, so that was really interesting. Also, the clips were all of me, I thought you’d pick clips from the voicemails.

TAMMI

Thought about it, but wanted to focus on, like, your perspective.

OLIVIA

I can see that. (smiles) A bit more uncomfortable for me, but it does make sense I suppose.

TAMMI

(smiles) That’s my job on this show! To make you just a *little* uncomfortable (laughs)

OLIVIA

(laughs) Yes, I suppose it is. 

TAMMI

Think that’s it for today. Thank you, as ever, dear Patreon supporters. We couldn’t do it without you!

OLIVIA

We really couldn’t. Thank you so very much.

TAMMI

And we have another drama school recording for next time, right?

OLIVIA

We do! Same director as the last one, but a different play. It seems like it’s their final production at drama school.

TAMMI

Exciting!

OLIVIA

Yes!

TAMMI

All right, I will take over again in about three months! Bye!

OLIVIA

Bye!
