>> 2018, hip hip -- >> hooray! ♪ ♪ what a great sight that is, right? >> i know. it's fleet week in the city so all the sailors around. >> it's great to see them. welcome to the holiday weekend, everyone, i'm anthony mason along with dana jacobson. we begin this morning with what could be a washout of a holiday for millions of people living along the gulf coast. storm watches are in effect from new orleans area to the florida panhandle, southwest of tallahassee, as subtropical storm alberto slowly moves north-northeast from the caribbean. alberto is about 95 miles east of cozumel, mexico, packing winds of 40 miles an hour. the storm brought heavy rain,
4:04 am
flash floods and dangerous rip currents on friday. >> a separate storm system brought heavy rain to central alabama on friday. ed curran of wbbm tv has the latest on what to expect. ed, good morning. >> well, good morning. we're looking at a system that will create a lot of rain as it continues its trek here. we already see rain streaming into southern florida and we're looking at the tropical storm watches that are up here in the pink and a flood watch throughout florida. also the concern up here along the gulf coast, a flash flood watch in place. we could see 5 to 8 inches of rain in this area. it's not out of the question that locally some areas could see maybe double that amount. alberto's currently 40-mile-per-hour winds tracking to the northeast at 7 miles an hour will become better organized as it travels through the warm waters. we're looking at landfall
4:05 am
probably around 1:00 in the morning on tuesday as a tropical storm. you can see futurecast shows you the movement of the storm as we go through this holiday weekend. anthony. >> what a weekend in the gulf. meteorologist ed curran of wbbm tv. thanks, ed. there's renewed hope this morning that the highly anticipated summit between president trump and north korean leader kim jong-un may still happen. just hours after abruptly cancelling the meeting, mr. trump signalled friday that conversations with the north koreans had resumed and a planned meeting in singapore next month is still possible. >> mola lenghi is at the white house this morning where the president is spending the holiday weekend. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the on again/off again summit between president trump and the north korean leader took yet another turn yesterday. speaking to reporters outside the white house, president trump used one of his favorite phrases to reveal that a meeting he cancelled less than 24 hours
4:06 am
before may go on as planned. >> we'll see what happens. it could even be the 12th. >> reporter: before leaving the white house friday, president trump told reporters the discussions with north korea about a possible meeting had resumed. >> we're talking to them now. it was a very nice statement they put out. we'll see what happens. >> reporter: that statement issued by north korea's first vice minister of foreign affairs praised the bold decision to agree to the historic meeting and expressed the north's sincere and active efforts to end the relations of hostility that have lasted for decades. >> the president is not just looking to have a meeting, he's not looking for just a cheap political stunt, he wants to get something that's a long-lasting and actual real solutions. >> reporter: press secretary sarah huckabee sanders said the white house was looking for a meeting that could produce results. if the north korean overtures were serious, the president would be ready. >> we're always going to be prepared. if the meeting takes place on june 12th, we'll be ready.
4:07 am
if it takes place on july 12th, we'll be ready. >> reporter: a planning trip to singapore led by joe hagin appears to be in question. hogan gidley said he couldn't comment on whether preparations would go forward. >> does that mean joe hagin's team is still going to singapore this weekend? >> there are no plans for that right now. >> reporter: the white house now says it will send a team to singapore for summit planning if it can secure guarantees the north koreans will attend. they skipped out before and the white house doesn't want to be stood up twice. james mattis says diplomats are back at it and mike pompeo could be dispatched for more talks. let's get perspective on what's going on with north korea and more from gabriel deben dety, national correspondent at "new york" magazine. where do we think the situation is at this point? >> it depends on who you're listening to. if you listen to the president,
4:08 am
you aren't really sure. he says actually this meeting might happen, it might not happen. there's still back channeling going on between the two nations and still some willingness to get something done of some sort. do we expect to see a meeting any time within the next few weeks? not clear right now. >> do we know what happened? was it a breakdown in communications, was it strategy, what was it? >> no, we don't. there seems to be a lot going on in the white house with different advisers talking to the president about whether they like or don't like the way north korea is talking about different americans involved in all this. of course kim jong-un had some harsh words for vice president mike pence. the president, donald trump, did not like that so he called everything off. then you have people including the secretary of state, the national security advisor all saying different things to the president here. there clearly seems to be some sort of disconnect. we're not sure exactly where it is. >> the other news making big news this week was the ongoing russia investigation and the briefing top lawmakers got about
4:09 am
classified intelligence from the justice department. where are we left at the end of this week after those briefings and the fight over them, in essence? >> a whole lot of confusion, which of course has been the theme here over the last few weeks with this investigation. those briefings in particular got pretty testy because a lot of democrats thought it was quite inappropriate that the white house was trying to insert or not insert one of the president's lawyers to the meetings. there seems to be some disagreement over what kind of involvement that lawyer actually had. where this leaves us, though, is continued partisan bickering on capitol hill over the president's attempts to really monitor what's going on in these meetings or what's going on in this investigation. when you have the president out there talking about whether or not there was a spy implanted in his campaign, something that democrats say is just totally not true, there seems to be a lot of confusion in the public which is perhaps what the white house wants. >> "the new york times" had a report that michael cohen, the president's attorney, had a meeting with a russian oligarch just days before the
4:10 am
inauguration. what does that mean for the mueller investigation? >> it means the investigation continues to be much broader than most of us realize. >> continues to get broader. >> absolutely, and perhaps much broader than the white house realizes. there seems to be so many more meetings than we knew about, so many more characters on the american and the russian side. an important thing to remember is because michael cohen is involved in this part of it, it also shows us that a number of these different scandals or controversies that the white house is wrapped up in are more closely involved than we might realize. michael cohen is known for being central to the stormy daniels saga which many think of as totally separate from the russian saga but we hear he's meeting with russians during the transition. there seems to be a lot going on here. >> a number of states held primaries on tuesday ahead of november's midterms. were there any surprises in those? >> there were no huge surprises, but there were some small upsets. i think one of the main takeaways here, particularly on the democratic side, you're seeing enormous energy behind
4:11 am
women candidates. over and over again women candidates keep winning in these primaries, including in somewhere they're not expected to win. >> lexington kentucky. >> amy mcgrath, the fighter pilot, beat the mayor of lexington, jim gray, who was the favorite there. and what basically she harnessed was this grassroots energy behind a number of women candidates all over the country. that's why you see more and more democratic women running and winning. >> that works right now in the primaries. can they carry that forward to the midterm election? >> this is the huge question and especially in kentucky where amy mcgrath who won this race was not the favored candidate of the national party. there's a bit of worry over whether she can win a general election in a conservative area like that. this is the big question. right now we're not sure but democrats are certainly confident. >> it feels like we're talking about the midterm elections as soon as the election was over. gabe, thank you. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" here on cbs, margaret brennan's guests will include florida senator marco

4:17 am
she was an aspiring actress, weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him at his manhattan office. the second charge is connected to an anonymous woman who alleges weinstein raped her in a new york city hotel in 2013. weinstein's attorney, benjamin brafman, said his client posted a $1 million bail and agreed to burn over his passports. >> people get convicted only when there is credible evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. in this case i do not believe that the district attorney has that nor do i believe that mr. weinstein has intentionally violated the law. >> i'm so proud of all the women that came forward bravely and told their stories. >> tv reporter lauren sivan said wine streen trapped her in a hallway and masturbated in front of her. he hopes he will eventually face jail time. >> i take solace in the fact that he will never be remembered for his oscar-winning movies or any of the careers he helped launch. he will be remembered as a

memorial day weekend is here and with it the start of the summer travel season. more than 41 million americans are expected to travel this weekend, the most since 2005. that, of course, means crowded airports, long lines and jammed highways. here to tell us what to expect is jacqueline gifford, travel director of "travel and leisure" magazine. jackie, welcome. >> good morning. >> with higher gas prices are more people traveling by road or by air? >> actually most of them are traveling by road, 37 million, if you can believe that. even though gas prices are higher, they're making up for it because hotel prices are lower and car rental prices are lower. about 3 million people will be flying this weekend. again, this is a record year, up 5% from last year. it's an encouraging sign for the economy. we've seen over the past few years people are really valuing travel, valuing experiences over things, so i think it's just a symptom of that. >> we're just getting into the summer travel season. how about tips for people saving time and money as they look
4:48 am
ahead. >> sure. one thing i like to suggest to do is set a fare alert. go to a site like google flights or use an app called hopper which i love. they'll notify you if it looks like the flight price will drop. i also suggest being flexible about your travel schedule. people have busy lives, they have their kids' camp and they have work. if you're a little flexible over a couple days, you might save a couple hundred dollars. the cheapest days to fly are tuesdays, wednesdays and saturdays. and the last tip, i suggest cashing in your points and miles. people like to hoard them. >> i'm impressed with mine. i admire them. >> they're there for a reason. you should use them. i'm guilty of it myself but i just did it and it was great. i'm letting them go. >> you have a few favorite easy getaways. let's start with the first one. charleston, south carolina.
4:49 am
>> it's so beautiful right here on the east coast. it's just the quintessential southern city. a ton of great historical sights to see, it's on the water and it's a really big food town. you can go from everything from a formal restaurant to great barbecue. i just love charleston. it's also a family friendly destination. there are tons of barrier islands near the city so you can go to the beaches, great hotels. it's just a great place if you like food and you like history. >> mackinaw island, a place i know very well. >> it's kind of a time capsule. it's got a victorian air of charm to it. no cars allowed on the island. people still travel by horse-drawn carriage if you can believe it. all these charming little shops, just lots to do. >> finally in the rocky mountains, telluride, colorado. >> so a lot of people go there to ski in the winter but the summer is just as beautiful. you can go mountain biking and hiking. they're famous for their charming little town, the main street. it's like stepping back into the wild west, lots to do there in
4:50 am
terms of outdoor activities. >> all those are great suggestions for a weekend. actually we hope most people dodge the rain. >> i don't know if we're going to do that in new york. >> jackie gifford, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. a blue chip career on wall street has just paid a big dividend. up next, we'll meet the new president of the new york stock exchange. the first woman to hold the post in the big board's more than 200-year history. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." your body was made for

better things than rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist move to another treatment, ask if xeljanz xr is right for you. xeljanz xr is a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. it can reduce pain, swelling and further joint damage, even without methotrexate. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you were in a region where fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. xeljanz xr can reduce the symptoms of ra, even without methotrexate.
4:53 am
ask your rheumatologist about xeljanz xr. uhp. i didn't believe it. again. ♪ ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth? ♪ i want to believe it. [ claps hands ] ♪ ooh i'm not hearing the confidence. okay, hold the name your price tool. power of options based on your budget! and! ♪ we'll make heaven a place on earth ♪ yeah! oh, my angels! ♪ ooh, heaven is a place on earth ♪ [ sobs quietly ] friday's opening bell at the new york stock exchange ushered in a new trading day and a new era for the exchange itself. presiding over the weekday ritual was stacey cunningham, the first woman named to lead the new york stock exchange in its 226-year history. we went to wall street to meet the woman breaking another glass ceiling.
4:54 am
>> is it breathing life into you again being out here? >> yes, it always is. it never gets old. >> stacey cunningham has called the new york stock exchange home since 1994. >> your first memory of the new york stock exchange is what? >> so i was an engineering student. i sort of threw happenstance ended up with an internship on the trading floor. as soon as i heard all the sounds and the energy and the pace, i knew it was home for me. >> she climbed the ranks on wall street, starting as a floor clerk and specialist, working her way up. >> there it goes. >> now 24 years after that new york stock exchange internship, stacey cunningham is its first female president. >> it's -- you know, it's overwhelming. we have a very high-profile role in global commerce, in the capital markets, and so being the face of that is a little intimidating. >> when you first started, you were one of few women. >> yes. >> what was that like?
4:55 am
>> i didn't notice it. >> really? >> i know that's a surprising answer. i know i was outnumbered. i can tell the difference between a man and a woman. but it was not -- it just wasn't top of mind for me. >> thanks in large part, cunningham says, to muriel siebert. back in 1967, siebert paved the way, becoming the first woman to own a seat on the new york stock exchange. >> she kept pushing, and she had to get sponsored to be a woman and the first nine people she asked said no. and even when she finally did get in, there wasn't a whole lot of support for having her there, so she did that hard work and so that's inspirational. >> but not all the doors were fully opened. >> so they turned phone booth number five, they turned it into a ladies room. right next to phone booth number five were the men's room. there were literally big saloon doors, attendants, couches, the whole thing. when i left in 2005, it was still the phone booth there.
4:56 am
>> she isn't the only prominent woman on the move. the beloved fearless girl statue is heading to her own perch in front of the new york stock exchange. >> what does that fearless girl mean to you? >> i think she's the greatest thing. i love her. i think she challenges corporate america to do better. when you look at the number of women in the corner office as ceos, less than 5% of the fortune 500 women and not necessarily growing. but for me, i just look at her and think she is taking on the world and she's not afraid at all. >> i absolutely love talking with her. she took a sabbatical during they are time there on wall street to go to culinary school. >> wow. >> she said that kitchen frenzy is like the wall street frenzy and it taught her a lot about communication which helped her when he she returned. >> i love her shoutout to muriel siebert who was a real pioneer on wall street. >> put your head down and charge. >> very impressive. it's the nation's most iconic comedy club and in many

ways the one that started them all. still ahead, we'll drop in on the legendary improv with the club's founder and a very famous face, jay leno. having that kind of a role with the crisis of faith, does that do something to you when you see yourself in the mirror and you're wearing a collar or is it like those other roles you described in terms of having toin habto in ha inhabit it? >> it's the question that i think is on the edge of so many people's lips and minds and it is on mine about where intersects with ecology. are we being good stewards, good leaders to our young people? where is ethics today? it is something we're all choking on as we feel it undermined and we look to the religious community, we look all around us for voice. i think paul schrader has given that anxiety voice in this movie. >> in this movie, the priest keeps a journal. did you keep a journal?
4:58 am
>> i kept a journal from the time i was 16 till shortly into my 40s. then somebody stole my briefcase and it had my journal in it. i got so worried about people reading it. i know that sounds -- there's nothing that shocking in it, okay, but -- >> it's just personal. >> it was personal. and then i never started again. it's a great way to organize your mindin. it is so hard sometimes to organize your thoughts and figure out what you mean. i think it's valuable to see how much we repeat ourselves. i look at my problems when i was 18, 28, 38, i just keep -- why is my mom driving me crazy? >> i bet your mom likes you playing a priest. >> she does. my whole family wanted me to be an episcopal minister. >> there you are.

5:12 am
variety of acts including singers like then a little known bette midler. >> was it clear right off the bat that you didn't really want it to be a variety club anymore, that you wanted to focus on comedy? >> yes. finally we dropped the singers completely. >> for aspiring comics bike leno, a few precious minutes on the improv stage was a goal worth sacrificing for. >> i would drive all night from boston every night of the week just to get three or four minutes at the improv. >> about the third night of him doing this, he said you mean to tell me you come down three nights in a row from boston and go back and you haven't been on yet? and he said yeah. okay, you're on next. after that it was -- >> one of the best -- the best moves i made. >> leno was there again when friedman moved out west in the mid-70s to open the now iconic hollywood improv. >> and the story goes that you actually picked budd up at
5:13 am
l.a.x. on his trip out here to open the improv. >> i painted the ceiling in fact. i mean it was a real home. i would not have come here was it not for the improv. >> those of you who were at the improv in new york, i see a lot of familiar faces, you're out here. this is a whole different feeling for the club. we've got new lights, both of them. >> by the mid-'80s, standup comedy was thriving, much credited to friedman and his counterpart, comedy store owner mitzi shore. >> some people sneeze and make no noise at all. they sneeze but there's no noise. >> the hollywood improv stage was where top comedians went to perform. >> how are you doing? evening at the improv or at the improv, it's in the evening, all the qualifications are fulfilled. >> and the bar was a scene packed with celebrities. >> bruce willis, john goodman, you know, i mean we're talking almost every night singing, bruce and john, to the jukebox.

5:15 am
followed. >> how do you want yourself and this place to be remembered, budd? >> i would just like us to be remembered and that's all. they can have their own opinion, but just remember me. >> and to add to the stories of the famous people who have come through the improv, that bartender you saw, eddie burke, replaced in 1979 an aspiring actor named les moonves. >> who runs this company. >> to be a bartender since 1979, that is an extraordinary achievement. >> he is a great guy, eddie burke. >> i want his stories. >> pull up a stool one night and you'll have a great experience. >> all right, jamie wax, thanks so much. no woman driver has posted a better finish at indy than danica patrick. on the eve of this year's race, dana will meet up with her as she gets ready for one last try at the checkered flag and we'll find out what's in store for her now that her racing career, this is amazing, comes to a close.

let's listen in on the radio. >> danica patrick has been living in the fast lane since she was a little girl, making a name for herself racing against the top men in professional motor sports. her final race, tomorrow at the indy 500. the raceway that launched her ground-breaking career. i recently spoke with her about that and the road ahead after racing. >> danica patrick has moved out into the front. >> it was a stunning, almost storybook debut for danica
5:20 am
patrick at the indy 500 in 2005. >> danica patrick is for real and she leads. >> a 23-year-old female rookie driver not just hanging with the guys, but leading them for a record 19 laps. her fourth place finish the highest ever for a woman. the "it" girl in racing had officially burst onto the world stage. >> i didn't call it this but got coined danica mania. there was people everywhere. the cover of "sports illustrated" and billboards and tv. it was an exciting time. >> what was it like not just as a rookie but as a female rookie? >> i don't really know about the female part. the female part had to do with, i guess, the amount because it was a unique scenario being a girl in racing. >> there was a lot of publicity about it or that was the interest from people. >> of course, it still is the interest that i'm a girl. it's never to go away. nor do i want it to because it's part of what's made me who i am today and given me as many opportunities and luxuries and
5:21 am
everything. but back then what was happening was overwhelming. >> danica started racing when she was 10 years old, breaking records at sugar river raceway in wisconsin. she was just a teenager when she headed overseas to hone her craft in european road racing. eventually making her much hyped indycar debut 13 years after danica first got behind the wheel. >> what did you love about driving that made you keep pushing? >> i loved setting a goal and accomplishing it. i don't race because i like driving fast. people always ask me do you like to go really fast? no, i'm not a daredevil. >> why do you race? >> i do it for the journey. it could have been anything. >> but for more than 25 years, it has been racing. her journey included indycar rookie of the year honors, the first ever indycar win for a female driver, and an eventual jump to nascar. danica was known for being outspoken and tough, for defying gender stereotypes in sports while proudly flaunting her
5:22 am
femininity. >> what was the hardest thing for you along the way? >> i think wanting to be successful every single time i went on track and sometimes not being, which then, you know, leads to why. we all have to prove ourselves as people with a job, right. your job, my job, anyone's job. you have to prove yourself. maybe i had to prove myself a little bit more frequently. >> blaze her own trail, if you will, something danica says she's been doing since even before she started driving. >> i just never grew up and thought i want to be like you, i want to do what you did. i always thought in my mind i want to do more. >> where does that come from? >> i don't know, i don't know. i've never been afraid of change. and i think that's why my life changes in ways that i would never expect every couple years, which is really scary, but it's also amazing because i'm open to it. >> my sister told me i was supposed to get emotional.
5:23 am
i said i wouldn't. >> danica's latest change, no different. overcome with emotion last year, she announced it was time to end her racing career. >> i just felt like there wasn't as much of a journey anymore. i remember last year, you know, talking to my dad and kind of saying to my dad, being emotional and like i don't really love it. he's like i know. you needed a job and you were good at it. >> i'm like, yep. >> so it wasn't a difficult decision to walk away? >> i mean it took some time, but it was more because it was sudden, kind of like bursting onto the scene. i came off the scene probably kind of sudden too. >> danica sue, this is for you. >> and with that, the danica double was announced. one last nascar run at the daytona 500 this past february, followed by the final race of her career at the indy 500. the place where it all began. >> the greatest memory for me was my first indy 500 in 2005. >> which makes sense then that

the last race would be -- >> lucky number 13. >> so if you could write the dream scenario. >> oh, i'd win. i would win. >> i think i knew that asking that question. what will be enough, though, when you finish that race? >> you know, i think all of my life i've kind of felt like you're only as good as your last race. it's fine to live by that when you're in the middle of it because it drives you and pushes you. but for that to really be the reality of your entire career is really silly. people are going to remember 20 some years of racing, 13 years professionally at the indycar and nascar level. not necessarily how i did at the indy 500 in my very last year unless i win. >> no matter the outcome, danica will continue to fuel her competitive spirit as an entrepreneur. she launched her own clothing line last year, wrote a book on fitness, and owns a vineyard in napa valley. all, she says, are part of her next journey. >> what's the first thing you think of when you look at what's ahead?
5:25 am
>> i think when i look forward to these other businesses that i've started very organically, i'm not going to bore you with how every one of them started, but trust me, they were not planned, they were only dreamt of. i think how much fun it's going to be. >> when you look back and you remember the career, how do you remember your career? >> i remember my career as being exciting. i remember it as being hard. i say this with total love and appreciation. i hope that some day i'm known for something else other than racing and people remember i was a race car driver. not to take away from racing but only to mean the other things i did were that successful and meaningful and affected people. that would be a pretty good career. >> two careers. >> or three. whatever. >> just don't count her out, i know that much. >> she is so impressive. i love the way she's going out. she's got such a good way to look at the whole thing.
5:26 am
>> i covered her since the beginning and it's really nice to see her so happy about what's ahead, because i think it took her a little time to find her way in that racing world with so much pressure and so much focus right from the beginning. >> we wish her all the luck today. very cool. most of us have stopped climbing trees since we were kids but not one emmy award-winning photographer. james aldred has spent 20 years high above forests. we'll meet him next. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."
5:27 am
when ideas come to me, i'll be walking around, something will pop in my mind and i'll say, well, let's play with this a little. what would a story be like if the evidence that somebody committed a horrible crime was iron clad, but if the evidence that the person had a perfect alibi, what if that was iron clad? you know, kind of a movable object and irresistible force. >> and he was a little league coach and you were a little league coach for your kids. >> i was. i started as a student learner when my youngest son was in little league and stepped up. i liked it, i liked the kids, i liked the whole ambience of it. what i liked particularly and what i used in the book was tidn
5:28 am
is more respected than someone who works with kids who's an upstanding -- and if something happens to that person where they find out that they have a secret life that's not nice,ere hated. >> if you ever heard him describe what happened to his ear as a child, something happened to him as a child. >> you know, people will say that in this casual way like what were you like as a child? and what they really mean is what screwed you up so badly that you want to do this? >> you talked about being a little league coach and what you noticed there. are you always taking notes for some character who might come down the road or picking up little bits of behavior to use and sprinkle through your books? >> it's like what they say about sharks. they have to keep swimming and feeding all the time, but you don't do it on purpose.
5:29 am
my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locate and mark fieldman for pg&e. most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week. together, we're building a better california.
5:30 am
orangutans are unique among primates on the way they move between trees. >> that was a clip from the national geographic series "paradise island." viewers may wonder how such astounding footage is actually filmed. in this case and many others, it was shot by our next guest. >> emmy award-winning wildlife photographer james aldred has spent a career up in the trees in jungles and forests across the globe. his life's work is documented in his new book "the man who climbed trees." james is with us. good morning, welcome. >> good morning, thank you very much. >> so i just asked you, you were 10 when you first climbed a tree. you knew it would play some role in your life. >> yes. >> what is it about the trees and these giant features that
5:31 am
you love so much? >> i think it's the energy really. they're sort of fountains of life, aren't they, trees, and support a lot of biodiversity. they're just an opportunity for looking at familiar landscapes from a different perspective in many respects when you climb up into their branches. it's a nice physical experience but also takes you on a mental and emotional journey. >> you've worked with one of the most well-known voices in nature shows, sir david attenboro and you rigged up systems so he could climb up in trees. >> nerve racking. >> you write about it. why? >> just sort of hoisting or raising any other human being and having responsibility for their safety -- >> there he goes. >> yes, of course. so we had that on a counterbalanced chair system so i could winch him up. >> you've got him at the end of a rope. >> actually i put a lot of safeties in that.
5:32 am
i'm quite a paranoid rigger. >> this is not a 10-year-old climbing a tree, this is more like climbing a mountain. >> it is, mountaineering and caving and industrial rope techniques because the trees, they're the size of buildings, you know. some of them are 30, 35 story building. >> looking at all of this, when you're able to show people this different perspective from up high, do you think that's helping people maybe appreciate nature and conservatism a little bit more? >> i think so. i mean it is one of the few sort of last truly unexplored sort of biological frontiers on the planet, the rain forest canopy. so to take people on a journey and particularly with a presenter as gifted as david, they can communicate that very, very well. to be part of that helping introduce people to new environments and sort of engender inspiration is nice. >> when you go up in the trees to get these shots, typically how long do you spend up there? >> it can be anything from a
5:33 am
couple of days to i've just come back from a month in the philippines where i was up in a tree every day for four weeks dawn to dusk every day to get the footage. >> the waiting is the hardest part? >> i actually enjoyed it. it's like waiting at a theater for your favorite actor to come out onstage. it could be ten seconds or it could be ten days. but sooner or later, richard burton or whoever walks out there. >> if we get richard burton out, that would be interesting. >> worth it, yeah. >> it's not always safe, though. there's got to be more danger than just getting up there. in the book you write about some crazy things that have happened. >> yeah, it's a very dynamic environment, the rain forest. there's a high turnover of life, a lot of pair sighrasites and a dynamic things that are constantly changing but that's part and parcel of working there. >> you've been attacked by african honeybees, charged by elephants. >> it sounds terrible, doesn't it? it's just because over 20 years it happens.
5:34 am
because you're entering their environment. a love these places as a human being. you don't really belong there and you're trying to force yourself into an ecosystem that gets on perfectly fine without you. there are a lot of things there that you do need to be careful of. >> the next place that you want to go and be able to capture? >> i would love to spend some time in the pacific northwest actually, up around british columbia. the temperate rain forest really, really interests me. so maybe one day. >> the book is "the man who climbs trees." james aldred, thanks for being with us this morning. it was a treat. and now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

was my favorite place to be. there are photographs of me 3 years old making biscuits with my grandmother. i just really think that's so important to be in the kitchen with kids. it teaches them history and math. it teaches so many things. that was just my favorite place. >> how did you get into cooking as a profession? >> my first job cooking was actually on a tv cooking show. >> it was? >> as an apprentice for natalie dupre. >> and what did you learn from her? >> i always like to say that natalie took me out of my mom's kitchen and exposed me to things that i had not been exposed to before. even though my mama is still a very adventurous cook, natalie showed me more the classic french technique and it was fantastic. >> you were also a kitchen director for bobby flay, for martha stewart. >> right. >> when and why did you decide to go out on your own? >> so it really reached a point where i was making recipes for other people and i wanted to start making my own recipes. that's when my first book came out ten years ago. it's recipes and stories from
5:41 am
three generations of southern cooking. >> you have resisted the idea of opening a restaurant, which is a direction a lot of chefs go. >> right. >> why? >> there are so many different aspects of the culinary field. i often laugh that i might do it backwards and when i'm ready to retire i'll open a restaurant. >> of course i take a bite of the biscuit before i ask you a question. i'm sorry, they're very good. i can't resist. the stories, you mentioned in the cookbook, it's not just the recipe, it's the stories behind them. why did you want to include something like that? >> there are eight chapters and two stories per chapter about a farmer, a harvester, a maker, a catcher. my friend and photographer angie and i drove to 11 states over the course of eight months to photograph for this book. so i really want to tell the stories of this richness and diversity in the south. >> well, i'm going to have you sign our dish next. >> yes. >> if you could have this meal with anyone, past or presenti, , who would it be?
