Int. Natalie’s Apartment – Afternoon
NATALIE: Today, August 26th, is Women’s Equality Day. And we have some things to say about it.
DYLAN: Thanks for the great introduction, Nat. I wanted to take this time to explain to you what today is about.
NATALIE: Haha! Jerk!
DYLAN: Man-splain’ until all hours of the day.
NATALIE: Like I said, WE’RE talking about Women’s Equality Day. The 19th Amendment to the Constitution. It stated that women were allowed to vote.
DYLAN: The 1800’s were a progressive time.
NATALIE: They were. But unfortunately, we didn’t get the right until the Twenty’s.
DYLAN: The Nineteen Twenty’s?
NATALIE: August 26, 1920 to be specific.
DYLAN: You’ve got to be kidding me.
NATALIE: I wish I were. Progress is progress. But even progress is slow.
DYLAN: Women are awesome.
NATALIE: I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic. But I’ll take the compliment at face value. Mainly because, we are. The paper bag?
NATALIE: Invented by a woman. At least the first machine to make them en masse. Francis Wolle was her name.
DYLAN: That’s crazy.
NATALIE: And even crazier than that, that was even improved by another woman named Margaret E. Knight. The original paper bag was more of an envelope. Margaret thought they needed a flat bottom. She invented a machine that massed produced just that.
DYLAN: So, when you’re carting your lunch to the office or to school you can thank your lucky stars. Cause it’s Knight-time!
DYLAN: Tell me more fact things about cool women.
NATALIE: I need you to do me a favor.
NATALIE: I need you to hold the vein on your head down when you hear this one.
NATALIE: Brainchild of a woman.
DYLAN: I always thought it evil.
NATALIE: Watch it. We are near the kitchen and SO many knives.
DYLAN: This is supposed to be a comedic podcast or whatever about two friends and their love of soup. Or whatever.
NATALIE: Your dedication to the art of words never fails to impress.
DYLAN: I can pull back a little.
NATALIE: Speaking of pulling back. Whenever you’re jogging down the street with your chocolate lab, Fido…
DYLAN: I don’t have a dog. Much less one named Fido.
NATALIE: That was for the purpose of storytelling…
DYLAN: Fido. Check. Go on.
NATALIE: Mary A. Delaney was a New Yorker loved her pooch. I guess she felt like she wanted control but wanted to give the good boy a little roaming room. So, she designed and patented the first retractable leash in the early 1900’s.
DYLAN: Who let the dogs out? Might have been Mary. But she can, with a flick of a button, get them back.
NATALIE: Hardy. Har. Har.
DYLAN: Sarcasm much?
NATALIE: You can thank Grace Hopper for the computer that your recording this on right now. She was co-designer with Howard Aiken. The Harvard’s Mark I Computer was a five-ton, room-sized monstrosity of a machine.
DYLAN: Men and woman. Working together. Creating a better tomorrow.
DYLAN: No, I’m serious.
NATALIE: Your tone kills me sometimes.
DYLAN: Was soup created by a woman?
NATALIE: Um… No.
DYLAN: Dang it.
NATALIE: Condensed soup was conceived by a man.
DYLAN: Can’t win ‘em all, I suppose.
NATALIE: BUT… a woman came up with the idea for alphabet soup.
DYLAN: Is that true?
NATALIE: I don’t know. Probably.
DYLAN: It’s your professionalism that I respect.
NATALIE: Sue me.
DYLAN: Uh-huh. All month, we’ve been telling you what’s out there to tickle your funny bone. That’s the Original Soupman.
NATALIE: The spots are really funny.
DYLAN: I wouldn’t say they’re funny. They are hilarious.
NATALIE: Need this one to count as a win?
DYLAN: Maybe. Maybe I just want people to find something that I think is comedic gold. Go onto YouTube. Go onto Insta or Facebook. Share the commercials. Share the content. Subscribe if you haven’t already.
DYLAN: Pretty please. Cherry on top.
NATALIE: You won’t regret it! I’m Natalie.
DYLAN: And I’m Dylan.
