you kind of leave your family behind, and so pick up where, what kind of dynamic is created with this character now. >> so at the end of season 2, shy baldwin asks midge to open for him on tour, and they're kicking it off and the parents, everyone knows now that midge is a comic. that's caused a ripple effect in the family it's a little tense between us when we start season 3. >> i saw just even in that clip, there's kind of like a shaming you leaving the family behind and i just found it so fascinating and interesting that that not only happened in the show but there's some real life mom shaming that goes on when it comes to your character. tell me about that. >> it's been so surprising i mean, i'm not a mom, so it's not something i have ever experienced personally but i found myself being offended on behalf of a fictional character. the response, i mean, the number of times i have been asked whether or not i think midge is a terrible mom, i got asked in an interview whether or not i thought she loved her children. >> just because you're working.
8:24 am
>> and alex is sitting in the interview with me, and she says, i'm away from my kids right now, are you questioning whether i love mine. you know, i'm getting a little taste of the kind of mom shaming that goes on in the real world be kind to each other. it's hard. >> your character is going through tough times, the career is going south, and that does not make you happy >> right at the end of season two we see that abe has kind of left his job at columbia, he's left his job at bell labs. he's having a bit of a midlife crisis, which i think was triggered by the fact that, you know, her marriage dissolved and then she went on this other path and it's had this ripple effect to all characters in the piece abe is starting anew. >> i was reading something about you that cracked me up it said in high school, it was like rachel was on the wrestling team >> yeah. yeah my weird claim to fame >> was it a boys and girls wrestling team.
8:25 am
