"We start operations what they're going to be thinking about now. PGA, so we're GONNA, you know we're really facing a whole new a whole new world in the. Face of this collapse of the employment, based healthcare, system and You know I think the jury is out on. You know exactly how this is. GonNa play out, but the opportunities to begin to organize for a more rational and humane alternative in are certainly there, and that's why we think that the political opportunities right now while we're still in the midst of this crisis is to provide sort of more expansive solutions to the emergency. legislation that we're going to have to continue to. Support as we move forward. To speaking of political opportunities. It seems like the Democrats best. Offer! For Workers Under who are dealing with losing their healthcare, undercurrent virus is to Expand Cobra and to subsidize Cobra. For, those workers who qualify how how do you feel about that? Mark Yeah well. You're right. They attached. This Cobra subsidy? Bill to the Heroes Act that Congress passed a few weeks back the heroes. act in general is a really good bill. It provides essential protections for frontline workers. It provides wage supplements for those workers who have to continue to work. It provides a bailout for the post office, which by the way may be out of business by the end of the year. If we don't do something, one of our great public. Public Institutions So you know there's a lot of good things in this bill, but we got outmaneuvered on the The healthcare portion of this bill and the Democratic leadership and a little group called a hip which is a lobbying group of the health insurance industry where able to attach of the narrowest least comprehensive and most costly support for a healthcare for workers who are displaced under this crisis. That basically says that. The the government will pay. The full colebrook costs for any out of work workers for the duration the crisis now. Cobra is explain what Cobras I was just getting ready to yeah. Thank you go? Cobras bill that was passed in the nineteen eighties. that gives workers the right when they lose their job if they're covered by an employment, based health plan and they work for an employer with. I. Don't remember if it's twenty or twenty five more. Workers They have a right to. Purchase their health care from their employer at basically at one hundred and two percent of the cost of what the employer was paying for. It so it's a sort of a you know. It was designed to provide an opportunity for people to maintain healthcare coverage is a transition between jobs now. Very few people ever took advantage of it because south is so damn expensive, and when you lose your job, you don't have any money, so you know to pay to have the right to pay one hundred and two percent of your healthcare insurance was pretty much the right not to have healthcare, but you know They've latched onto that solution by saying. We'll pay the full cost so what we're doing now is. We're if this bill passes stuck in the Senate right now. Is First. Of all, you will only provide relief for a narrow subset of workers who are affected by this crisis that is those workers who already had employment healthcare who worked for employers, an employer of twenty or more workers. and. Had the all the other accoutrements of at healthcare? It's only a narrow subset.

"Think it was January, maybe December. titled. Take my benefits. Please Wyoming. Based healthcare is an anchor around the neck of the US working class You know and you know that that people would celebrate this crazy system that we have. That links employment healthcare to employment. So if you lose your job, you lose your healthcare. If you go on strike, you can lose your healthcare. If you get sick. You often lose your care You know it's just outrageous. And you know and also oblivious to the fact that for a entire generation, healthcare has been the biggest cause of strikes and lockouts and concession bargaining. with unionized employers, the workers who are lucky enough to even have a say in what kind of health care that they get, and you know a constant deterioration in the standards for all working class Americans so. It was just such a UP. Outrageous way to frame it and you know I think that that's talking points that were developed by. You know people who have a real stake in the system for profit. Industry who are very smart about this idea about that sociologists call loss, aversion that people are often more motivated by the fear of losing something that they have rather than the hope of gaining something that they need and so the Way To manipulate people's thoughts. We I like to joke that. The only people the only thing people hate worse than their health insurance company is the fear of being without any health insurance, and that's the kind of way that loss loss aversion plays on people. Don't. Medicare recipients you know saying this Medicare for all is going to mean that you're gonNA. Lose your Medicare because everybody will have Medicare. It's like you know you don't think it's GonNa work, but it works AH. This pernicious way of of manipulating people's deepest fears and insecurities So that's you know that's the way they played it. And I was actually struck with how. People rejected that formulation and you know and I. You know I. think that that's what really means that you know this is an idea whose time has come. Because if you look at the polling, no matter who people voted for. A majority of primary voters believe in and support Medicare for all even in the face of these kind of nasty. Industry as talking points and so this this is really kind of cleared a.

They had two matches there that were very highly produced. They had the undertaker. Aj Styles. They did that in the in. The graveyard It was like a little mini movie. And then you had the the Bray Wyatt John. A very very similar. They're all over the place. Route very produced a very entertaining. Probably the highlights of the entire show Do you think the wrestling may be kind of make that turn and adjust and we're going to get over that because you know the nature wrestling kind of place to that. It's it's like a soap opera rights. It's like a little miniature movie kind of place to that and Cyrus. What a brilliant way to solve a problem right if your problem is don't have audience and it's going to look a little bit different on TV when people are used to don't even do Rena take it out to the graveyard taken out to. I mean right that. What a perfect way to do it produce. It turned that you use but now they can spend an hour on the match if they need to they can edit that can make it more like a movie. We still get what we want. Which is the conflict the resolution to the conflict? Move onto the next one. I thought that was a great way to solve the problem. And I must tell you as an undertaker fan so they might have just added ten years to his career. If you go out and you do it that way where you could do a little bit stand-down do a little bit standup piecing together like that. Vignette style I thought it was. I think everybody one. That's also I go back to the Reno. Why have to do it? In the squared circle. Why have to do it to those constraints. There's another way and when there's no live audience who you're leaving with dead action because it's all a viewer anyway in your pipe it into the truck. It was a brilliant solution. I don't even think it was meant to by the way. I think they just want to do that. Graveyard match then. It just happened that we got in this different time. I think everything maybe unintentionally worked out but I hope they learn something from it. Yeah I think it could be a great thing sticking with rushing for just a little bit longer. We worked together on global force. Wrestling seems like a long time ago. If three or four years ago I guess out Las Vegas and You kind of had your first ray into the business and everybody always said you know. Cheltenham would be perfect for professional wrestling.

Baroni off to the side. We're having a lot of fun Global force wrestling. Tell me about that experience and it. Was It really a dream? Come true for you to be able to do that. I remember I remember very similar the way you described it man. That was a great time. Where the Orleans in in Nevada and by the way sidetrack what? What's happened to Jeff Jarrett? Wha- was that all the work that he you know he was over at global force and he left and it was this weird thing where is right now. Because he's not an internist. Jared is Jeff. Jarrett is backstage in a very extremely prominent role with the wwe. Now Oh yes. I didn't know that after he went into the hall of fame I believe they brought him in as an agent and now he's rose up the ranks ranks pretty quickly and I think he's you know maybe one or two two or three spots you know on the Totem Pole. You know away from the top. So he's He's getting up there and he's doing a job. Well he knows the business so well. I mean it does seem like you're better to team up with them than than have him as a rival of fellow promotion but I didn't know that I appreciate the update on that was that was so much fun. Those guy you know bobby rude beat around Nick and you know I it. Just I- namedrop and play that game all day but I mean there was. Such talent was coming through there and then to be behind stage. That would be the part of the Dream. Come true part that was the cool partic- how the sausage was made to be welcomed into that environment being a lifelong fan being there with having the meals share in the conversation. Yeah Man. I wish we're doing it right now. That was fun. That was a lot of fun and I WANNA ask you about Roddy Piper because I don't know if anybody knows this or not.

We passed the torch to you as far as doing those interview segments and obviously he passed away just a few weeks before he was supposed to come out to Vegas. And you're up there in Oregon Piper. Who is in Oregon lived in Oregon? Did you know Roddy Piper Beforehand And how disappointed I?

Did you know rowdy before that? Yes I did so I wouldn't be what you would call close with Rodney. I'm close with his son cult. He and I are teammates and then I was even able to serve in a coaching capacity to Colt. But Roddy would come and he was very supportive. I mean they talked every day. They had dinner together every single night and Mirada and his family were very tight with each other. If you ever saw them out on the town you would see the wife. You'd see the system and they would all be together. They liked each other. They were good family so yeah when he passed sure everybody felt from a personal stan.

"Hey there and welcome to episode one zero six. Today's topic is this facebook groups so I've done a little bit of content around facebook groups. But what I wanted to today was give you some of the stealth tactics that were using to pretty quickly and effectively. Start to grow are group's before I give you the tactics. I WanNa give you a bit of a disclaimer while the strategy I'm going to give you is great and it works really really well. I WanNa make sure that you do not make facebook groups either your core or you're only marketing tactic in the reason behind. That is that. I'm always nervous if your building audience on. Her rented platform like facebook. I've seen many instances where facebook has just overnight shutdown groups or commandeered groups and things like that. Now as long as you're following the terms of service and keeping everything above the line. You should be just fine but I just want you to keep that in mind so with that said what I really enjoy about. Facebook groups is if you're able to build some regular engagement. This group is going to be a great place to drive leads to you and often turned into a money making machine so the first step is really looking at what type of group is going to serve your local business. The best and what I mean by that is unless you're serving all of the United States for example you gotta a pretty narrow focus so with any group you want to add a city name in the group name. So for example if you're in Tulsa Oklahoma and your restaurant you might call the group. Tulsa Food Lovers SP- you never WANNA make the group about Your Business Your Business Name and we'll get to that in a second is going to be secondary to this whole process. It's gotta be something that's a little bit more. Generic food lovers pet lovers crafters trappers health fanatics. Whatever the overarching or general topic. That your business can help with your. Cpa You should you could make something the Tulsa growing your income section her. I mean some something like that or growing your income page and there's a lot of obviously different ways to to think about it but you've gotTa make sure that the group is specific to a particular city area rather than just calling the group food lovers for example then you're going to get people from all over the US and even the world no well. That's not a terrible thing. It's not necessarily going to help. So that's step one now step to the new so great. So I've got the group. What do I do now? So this is where things really start to get exciting. My favorite strategy for growing your group rapidly is to offer something in exchange for people joining. So let's say let's stick with the restaurant example. So it's the Tulsa Food Lovers Group and what if you were able to talk to a few restaurants each restaurant gives a five or ten dollar voucher and if you join this group you're going to get fifty dollars and free food to some Tulsa. H's best restaurants the only way to get the group and the vouchers are the only way to get the vouchers is to join the actual group. So you're giving them a carrot as to why they should join the group rather than just. Hey Join my group on food and and learn about all things related to food you give them a huge hook then you take that. Hook and you start to run ads off of the hook. You will very rapidly. Start to grow your facebook group by offering a hook then when they get there. You WanNa make sure that you've got a pin post about how to get whatever they just requested or whatever they opted into so that when they go. They're they're seeing what they're looking for because otherwise it's going to seem a little bit of a Bait and switch the pinned post should then be. Here's how to claim your fifty dollars restaurant vouchers for example so that one tactic when deployed correctly. I promise you will start to drive you more gr- members where I want you to take this up to two. Notches is have to other offers. So one offer could be get a free bottle of wine or get a free bag or whatever it is. I mean something like that or a fun corkscrew. If you join our text club so then maybe you have another post or some more data in the pinned post that then says step two if you like us to mail you. A free corkscrew taxed corkscrew to nine nine nine nine nine nine for example so you would leverage a short code tax message system so now you only have them as a group member but you. Now Start to build up your mobile numbers. Now you're on a non rented platform you take it to the third level and if they want the third gift or third offer or e book. Maybe it's twenty recipes. Then they're going to click there to get it and that's GonNa add them to your many chat. Facebook BOUGHT FOR EXAMPLE. So now you can send them messages directly on facebook you can hit them up in the facebook group in more so than you can tax them so one name one person joins but you end up getting three different ways to contact that person. That is worth weight in gold. Now what do you do from here? You make sure that you're posting two three four five six times every single day you make sure that you make a couple of the key members admins or moderators. You offer other incentives you're posting on a regular basis. The more engagement you get the better your group will become. You might be thinking at a high level. Okay Michael All. This stuff is great. I see how to grow a group. See you have to have a hook a C- you WanNa get them on other platforms put. What are you actually doing with all this stuff? How does it tie into my business? People are going to look at the admins information. They're gonNA come back to your facebook. Page your personal page. So you don't want to know more about you. You can leverage the page to push your special offers and promotions as long as. That's not the only thing that you're doing but it's your group your group not anyone else's so if you WANNA have one post a day in one of the dishes at your posting. Every single day is from your restaurant. You can definitely do that. And then you're going to tag your restaurant and maybe you put a little special in there. But I do not want you to make this all about your restaurant. People will not want to stay on that facebook group. It's gotTa be providing helpful authentic useful content so they will continue to come back to that group on a regular basis. That's how you grow a facebook group. That is how you continue to sting gauged with them and then finally how you actually get them to take action. Hope you enjoyed this episode on facebook groups get out there. Bill the group and start growing your revenue today. Michael Tanner signing off. Good Morning. Good afternoon and good night. See you back here tomorrow by. Thank you for listening to this episode of marketing. Above all get out there make a chain and take some action and hey don't forget to leave a five star review and tell all your friends.

Brady's side lemon juice three well I mean. They got caught cheating twice the Patriots. The Patriots got caught cheating twice. They called Tom Brady at one time. But I'm saying the Tom Brady. deflategate thing is a blemish. I'll take get back. That's not on Tom Brady. That's on the page. He doesn't benefit from the information pointing the point. I'm making is. You could argue that. He has won so much that he has the right to do and say whatever he wants draws much attention as he wants. I think that all the players have as much right to draw they want. It doesn't bother me if anybody does it. But I'm saying the difference between Tom Brady and many of these other guys. It's Tom Brady has. Since he's the goat you call them to go on his record. Aside you yourself called him the greatest of all I I will say that he wants to stand on a table and mate and say look at me. Look at me I grew. I don't work on the money. That's out there go do it. I don't agree with that entirely but I will say this. I think like we have some overlap. Here you're on. The periphery of something. That I think is true when you have a kind of personality people can smell it on you right where they think you are. Whatever for controversies around your cheating or otherwise they find something about you authentic? You're able to leave in an authentic way and they just gravitate toward you. Molly always loved Tom. Brady for the leadership and everything. It's the yeah the guys like that or given the benefit of the doubt and allowed more leeway than guys who feel fake to the media nevertheless for the less and maybe Lebron had some of that the beginning nevertheless J. Lebron was dragged. A Rod was dragged. The Tom Brady a better football player. Lebron basketball player. No he was he was he was he was the greatest coach on more cetera.

He's one of the greatest players of all time. He was a champion. He was an MVP multiple times the whole thing. He was one of the really one of the handful of greatest players ever killed them. Lebron Saint Think. Think for annexing where he wanted to play killed them. Your scores aren't killing. Tom Brady Tom. Brady's authentic and they didn't think age of instagram and beyond he was promoting a commercial. Is it our fault that we gravitated to the post. I mean what do you do. Don't this is okay with them. As I said this is wild to me because 'cause we had the same compensation I was here with the three of you about Becca and you all said the same thing on the other side. I said we don't have to Odell. Beckham Stephen Look at me and say we do. We don't have to. I don't understand. Why are you doing that? Because because because he's authentic.

Though we hasn't shown leadership brady run on the field. elden start paying is wailing grabbed the money himself. What you're what you're doing?

We have been reporting on prepaid daily in Europe and this matter of medical care Ross position that means you have a right to come to my house and conscripts believe in slavery lever. I'm Benjamin Day Stephanie Nakajima and this is Medicare for all the podcast for everybody who needs healthcare except for Michael Bloomberg Mike Bloomberg. What did he do this time? So so as you know. He's been running for president. You don't say I wish he was running out or something so elevated profile a little bit yeah and the. DNC has changed the rules so that he can participate and the next thing Without having as reaching reaching the threshold for donors That previous candidates had had to meet to attend the debates. I'm glad we're making some provision for billionaires because we haven't done enough for them yet in this country I think we should really ease their way into the process. All Right I agree with cutting Mike Bloomberg out of the Medicare for all coverage. I feel like usually I think that it's a solid solid Eric Policy. That everybody should have it. You know well like in Scandinavian countries whether rich or poor but if you can buy your way into the democratic debate stage then you can buy your own damn healthcare and besides we're cutting at least one personnel each week during the someone's gotTa go So speaking of the primaries as we are recording this the Iowa caucuses just just started today. So I mean it feels like this. Election has already been going on forever but in reality the election is just now starting. Today's recording this You'll be listening to it on Tuesday after the caucuses finished And if you're lucky enough to live in Iowa or one of these primary states not only are you just drowned out submerged with advertisements from the candidates but The Partnership for America's Healthcare Future Future. which is the like Orwellian slash dystopia phrase that That has come up. They come up with for the coalition that it was created basically to defeat Medicare for all so this is the Health Insurance Industry Pharma. This is the for profit hospitals. This is the Chamber of Commerce All of the powers of a line to try and undermine Medicare for all and they are actually also spending hundreds of thousands of dollars running ads in the primary states. It's and We thought we would actually Take a short break from all these candidates and talking about the candidates running for office and like like put a little bit of focus on the Partnership for America's healthcare future and how they're trying to undermine Medicare fraud shoe. Listen to this ad or sure. Okay Get ready to enjoy some good old fashioned advertising. We come from different walks of life but we agree on one important thing. We don't want WanNa be forced into a one-size-fits-all government insurance system. The politicians may call it medicare for all medicare buying or the public option. But they mean the same thing a higher taxes or higher premiums lower quality care politicians and bureaucrats in control of our health care. We can't afford one size. Fits all planned and we need to fix. What's broken? Start over so What was your first take? That was like a lot a lot of gobbledygook thrown at us in the span of thirty seconds. Every single possible talking point smashed into thirty seconds sometimes sometimes repeated two or three times. You know you don't you shouldn't be afraid of one. Size fits all healthcare. I don't know if you've ever had it before. It's like a ill-fitting sweater sweater. You know. When I lived in England everyone basically does have the same healthcare and it turns out? The comprehensive healthcare fits every single person. AH regardless of your body size. That's right. I mean every single person has a body. So I kind of like the idea of one-size-fits-all home insurance. No the name of this. This ad which you can see on Youtube is called same thing and actually what they're arguing. I think the main argument of the AD is that Medicare for all is the same exact thing as a medicare buy in and a public option. So why the hell are they renting this in in primary states like Iowa and what's the point of like conflicting those those two. I wonder any any expansion of public health insurance. is perceived to be threat. I think which is a strategic mistake on on their part I think because it rather than co opting One of the more more corporate solutions like a public option. They A. They'd rather just go all in against any sort of reform which I think is going to backfire on them. Yeah I mean they've they've stated that one of their goals the partnership schools is to keep Medicare for all and public option off of the Democratic Party Platform Twenty twenty which seems very unlikely given that every candidate it under stages backing one of those two And I I guess it's confusing to me like WH- every debate medicare for all. Is the number one issue in the presidential in and the democratic debate and all in the main thing they talk about is how different. Their healthcare plans are So people are constantly exposed. The huge gap between a Medicare medicare for all proposal and a public option. Buying and these guys are like running ads swimming upstream like trying to convince you that basically they're the same thing Another thing that struck me in there. I mean. Do you think that this is GonNa work. Like who are they trying to help one candidate win. Or what do you think. The goal is ultimately Emilia running these ads targeted at Democratic primary states. Yeah whatever their plan is It's not actually working all. The ads have not only failed to really make a dent in public opinion about single payer but they've also failed to prevent The more you're liberal candidates like Sanders and Warren. From doing well in Iowa on factor in fact sanders is surging right now And in two thousand sixteen trump won the IRA fifty one to forty one. And if the polling today is correct If you know we were in the general and Iowa was voting. Today he'd win by a smaller smaller margin against any Democratic candidate reforming from you know the public option. Democrats to the all out Medicare for all Democrats Democrats by only six point spread Went up against you know Sanders or Warren So what is the lesson here. Money can't buy you love. Yeah they haven't won my love yet. I wonder I mean the other thing that's interesting is they're kind of they're they're imposing the same. They're they're trying to punish certain candidates for running on these issues But they're imposing the same costs on candidate support Medicare for all and a public option. So there's there's really no disincentive for Democrats to support Medicare for all and it's also I think a lesson about how you know. I think the Democrats who are pushing a public option. They're saying thing. Hey look this more moderate choice. It's not GonNa get the full opposition of the healthcare industry right We're just going to tinker around the edges. We're going to expand access a little that we're gonNA try and do things here and there to not make healthcare right but to like expand coverage Maybe make things a little less horrible But they are actually really triggering the full opposition of the healthcare industry the same exact Resources and money and messaging that Medicare will fight gets So the establishment government is going to have to come up with another reason to taxing pair over a public option because in terms of political feasability I don't really see an advantage advantage anymore. Exactly this gets to the core. The most common pushback we hear on Medicare for all his political feasibility. And that's like a reason to do a public option instead it turns out that there's the same existential crisis in the healthcare industry. That and I mean it's worth remembering. The partnership is not just the health insurance industry. It's also also Pharma. It's also hospitals. It's also chambers of commerce and all of these groups have agreed to fight a public option equally to fighting Medicare for all so much so that they're running ads trying to convince you that the same exact thing which is incredible to me so next? We're going to look at it. A couple of ads been run. Also attacking Medicare for all Again I think premised on the notion that you can get something politically after going after Democrats for Medicare for all and or the public option. Same thing if you didn't the same exact thing And in this case we're looking at two Senate races in Kansas and Michigan So in Michigan Senator Gary Peters is being attacked by this pack called Better Future Michigan a right wing pack and in Kansas Barbara bully a a sitting. US Senator is being attached attacked by a Republican Competitor who's running for a seat Named Susan Weigl who is the current And this is incredible to me. She's the current Senate president of the State Senate in Kansas And we're GONNA listen to her at first because it is just almost unbelievable I'm I'm so sad you can. We cannot give you guys the graphics of this individual imagery. But we'll try and describe to you so I'm going to play that now. It's called socialized. Medicine also known as Medicare for all the government decides what doctor you can see when you can see Dr. It's expensive leads to long waits and about as efficient and your local DMV DMV and this is the Healthcare Warren Sanders Eos and Barbara Bully. Want to give you Susan. My family like many other families his hand. Our share of healthcare battles are manuals instilled in me a strong on commitment to provide a healthcare system.

"To know like. Oh that's that's in. The KESSEL is recognizing their faces. And it's hard with cages. It is not a lot of them. Were the bubble at least one. Yeah it's probably the bubble people who may not know full plastic plastic face yield rather than the kate. Yeah et message I say in my experience like maybe twenty five percent of girls where the bubble as we call it Ama- who we work with. She played at Trinity. Also She she's fewer bubble and she she's always worn it. I prefer the cage but I don't know I've never the differences between the men's game in the girls in the women's game that's always bothered me is checking. I always wanted to have checking. I always wanted our game to exactly the same But but as far as I know cage I like having a cage I play men's league now and I'm the only girl and Song only one. That was a full cage pretty much and I still. I Dunno just seems so silly especially in men's league like these guys are wearing no shield. Would you be allowed to take the cage off if there's rafts or anything but yeah I just like you get you get to the face of money to pay dental and like I don't I don't want to mess this up. Yeah I mean I I agree at the beginning. It would have been cool to see their helmets often like at a little bit more personality. The game but I- every girl like some some almost everyone cage is learned to see through. I don't I can see now wearing glasses. Filtered up I felt the not that it's even anything close but when the put the nets up yeah whatever. Twenty years ago I was one of those people. They ruined my in two days later. The second issue and whatever this is total unique to the event but when they had all the players from both from all four divisions standing on the blue lines for the anthems and then they have the women out there. All the guys were in their teens. Jerseys he's so you had all of this color mall this pageantry all the fans in the stands you know wearing jerseys. They want and the women were in black and white. Yeah it wouldn't come up with. I was surprised by that. I thought they were GONNA go more. US Canada heavy a little bit. Or you know something. I liked jerseys. I just thought they were Nice. And clean and I liked the colors they used. Because I'm more of like a simple kind of person but I agree. There was there wasn't a lot of like it's different than the men's game in that they were representing their countries for that and they. We didn't really get to show that with the uniform. I I'm I mean it's tough because we all work for the kings right black and white forever but I'm really tired of black and white. The League events now got us so anyway but I wanNA thank you for joining us. Yeah this is great. I hopefully will talk. So that's the Nhl all-star break in the Ahl all-star break done move forward Lozad have been called to the Kings so we assume that Lozad Backing lineup sounds like drew. Doughty will not be in the lineup yet. He'll be out tomorrow for the game bomber bomber but hopefully he'll be back process matchup Against the years on a coyotes in the ducks on Saturday Any thoughts on spring. On you I apologize. Any thoughts on his quotes quotes the athletic. which ones you're talking about? At least the Delman had an interview with him where he expressed his disappointment. At how seasons. Yes Oh yes UH-HUH I mean. He's frustrated he signed a huge contract. He is such a competitive guy and he wants to win and I think last year it was like all right. We need it turns surround. Now we've got a new coach more putting all those things in place but it's not something that happens overnight and I think he's just kind of feeling that impatience of he wants to move back in Safa League and he is just now struggling and trying to lead this team You gotta be hard. There was an interview interview. May Not be the right word. But two years ago when Dustin Brown got up on stage at the state of the Union State of the franchise at event any talked about learning in his career to focus less on the outcome and more on the process and it it struck me as an incredibly mature realization and moment for him and I am hoping that we see the same realization structured out as drew. Doughty has in one of my all time. Favorite Kings Watch I you know. Somebody tweeted out that the Air Carlson got his six hundred 's career point and I was compelled point out that he's a minus forty six in his career in that comes exclusively from loving dowdy. I don't care about hair Carl's career other than the Berry. I have complete and totally rational adoration for the career of doughty and yet I am very I'm not comfortable Obviously last season was a disaster for everybody. This season seems to be a struggle for him from my perspective. Anyway as well and I've heard of excuses in arguments the supporting cast isn't isn't there and it's a new system etcetera etcetera etcetera. And yet I look back at his numbers and I see a guy who played for different coaches. Now I WANNA same Murray Sutter Stevens Jordan. And that doesn't count as a tour Chetty in interim coach and he's never had an elite partner. I mean people he's partnered with are the kind of people fan bases complain about on twitter. Dirk Eric for raid mcnabb. Even though I thought it was a perfect partner for even Jake Muhsin who who is an all star and a and a World Cup player Erin all of that and last season in this season his numbers just don't support the idea that he's the same player and I don't know if that is I don't know what it's about but it's concerning. Yeah I mean in the article. He said it's been stressful and depressing. Sometimes you gotta sit back and realize you don't have the team you once had so I think he's. He's just going back to the drawing board and figuring out how he can be a leader on this team and what the next year's look for him..

"PARTNER WITH YAHOO OR ESPN or one of these companies. Work it into the broadcast. So that the broadcasters no which events people have chosen that are trending are possible and have feedback down to the players on the ice. So if it's the second period of the first game and and it's sixty two Atlantic over the Pacific what if Connor mcdavid scores a hat trick. It's worth so many points or if Jack Eichel you know wins the game or wins. MVP or something. I think that might actually have an opportunity to get the players involved. Not Take Care in a grander scheme or give full hockey game effort. But he just moments to try and stop somebody to try and help somebody to try and accomplish zivie goals within within the format of the game which doesn't change. They might laugh. They might joke. They might get behind. You know if some crazy fan decided that they think that Komo hurdle getting ten points over the course of the two games that he could play would be the difference between that fan winning or not winning. I don't like I said I think you might actually inspire moments of caring from the from the players and you would involve the fans. You don't change the format you change how it's presented the fans tonight. This pains me to say but I got back home. Fleet agree with you and I love that idea. I think it to Even if you're having a watch party and their families out there you know you're you're engaged with each other it's interactive I think you have all like you said all the regular things. You have. People winning competitions shins or winning the game and then those secret trick shot bonus points or having take officers and you see the blue stirs things like that they might happen. Might not happen but I actually have loved that idea the more I was thinking about it the more because I was talking to people at the age will all serve in about it last night and the more I started coming up with bonkers ideas like let's say there's a golden stick to stakes lefty and righty per team. And they just you can switch sticks in the middle of a shift you can switched on the ice but if you score with that stick it's worth to. I mean it doesn't yeah whatever you can come up with all sorts of insane ideas. Yeah you can definitely tell I think some of the guys who are taking it easy easy and our debt funding this adds that kind of extra component without demanding like I said a full sixty minute by of playing defense and everything but again there might be these little moments where you can capture yet anyway. Just a thought. Did you hear what hosting on the bench about a red stick. Because I've never seen a guy he's player with that and I think hurdle over there and I saw Gretzky on the bench talking about Was it Queen Hughes. Yeah thing that young lads a defenseman Eric. All right first of all why is Wayne Gretzky. Talk like he's you know from the twenty nine hundred twenty six wayne Gretzky now. It's just I was just unexpected For a guy like that anyway. Let's get into the shooting stars reaction. I felt it has potentially needs tweaking totally but I thought it had potential Tuchel. Yeah I mean I think the one thing a lot of people said is why is the largest target worth the most points canes hidden Sony twos and if those were tents ends you'd have won it so I think that was a little confusing. It's harder than it looks. I mean the guy's got a couple test runs the day before the morning of and you know it's not that intuitive there's not many times version from that angle so I think you could tell I think it was a riley kept going back for more. The they were a little frustrated with it but it seem to be fun. There was one shot that landed in the arch allies around the first one but but you know an arc parked in side on the side. Yeah I was like just give it to him. Come on so somebody's Abacha be worth twice as much because the trick shot trying to replicate that shower would be impossible. I know I I need so many opportunities seven or went out like we could have cut down. I think when this is why I think my Bingo idea is it's helpful because even in the skills contest to do to two different versions of the same thing so much downtime in between some of these events and that ultimately is what I think needs to be fixed on some of them right harshad is what it is. The fastest skater is what it is. But that's where we run into the breakaway challenge. It's just so long and in the other guys are just hanging out and so I don't know figure a way to get the fans involved. I don't know what you would do with shooting stars Devoted a ton of thought to it yet but the bigger targets need to be worthless blast. Yeah and I would honestly say more goofy things like the Ark totally her arch. I guess Has the the the twos and the forest they had set up. Yeah and nobody was aiming for them. So I don't know if you WANNA put honestly like it's such a dumb trick but putting the faces of other players on the targets in the the accuracy thing made it exponentially more interesting. Maybe half in half players. I don't know I don't know but I thought I I liked. I liked how outside of the box. It was like they were willing to try something completely crazy. Yeah when you're reading it you're like WHOA. This is not yeah. I think always having something new exciting. Like that's great. I I liked it. So let's get into the actual games Pacific wins again other than the fact that Copa cars involved after we care not really Sad to say it is I think it was fun to see at the C. Dry Seidel and Chuck Nice giving Gogol. That was pretty interesting. It hadn't even occurred to me as I was watching it but then I saw the replay and and somebody on twitter pointed out that they even look at them or like celebrate and just then they both. I think chuck went to the veterinary. Both had you know little grin on their roses. You Know He. He had an interview where he said. We're all just having fun here. You know all of its forgotten. How much of that's true? Because I know they've got this Wednesday circle on their calendar for when they meet up again. But I think it's fun to see I know Thomas Hurdle and Copay tar were seated next to each other in the locker room and they developed in chemistry and and Gosh no each other veteran in hurdle is saying like for seven years. We paid each other. But now we're buddies now hanging out so I think just for that part of these players interact who normally I mean. It's it's worth breath. It's financing the coaches TERP. Each Other and get involved. Two's pretty funny. There's not a lot of ducks or sharks over the years that I would have liked to have seen on the king's uh-huh Salani is one of them. Oh Yeah Tomas Hurdles and other. There's a tiny part of me. That would always get jealous when he would have. I can't remember his quote hockey. Must always that'd be fun or something like that. Yeah and you'd see the charger fan base react and they love him and he's lovable absolutely. I think Kobe might have gone and being like I'm not not give this guy a chance. And then as soon as he kind of cracks a smile opens his mouth. It's pretty hard not to love him and You know get along with him ultimately a Again the Pacific wins. It's fine if they're going to do this. Format and somebody has to win. I prefer the Pacific. Yeah whatever moving moving onto the Ahl all-star Game Oli. I'M NOT GONNA say I'm going to go backwards. I WanNa talk about the the All Star Game Format. And then we'll talk about stills this company it's entirely too much I love the h. l. l. what has become. I love talking everybody who works for it. But it was six three Andrea Games in a row and then a championship game. Not It's insanity it's it's just too much with anything that they I mean. Even the skills competition. It's there's so much going on pieces flying everywhere I mean it's it you just kinda sign up for that so I wouldn't expect anything less but I know it's hard to follow any so there were six games six games is that right yeah. Six Games three of them involving the Pacific and the other three. I just watch one and then I just had to excuse myself after the NHL backed back. It's just too much you and I both and I understand why it can't can't be both events in the same city because you wanna have the H. L. GonNa reward the fans who are award the organizations that means the buildings etc.. But I just felt like on a Monday night to have people out from seven to ten to watch endless meaningless three on three little to lots of big ask about the skills contest. I'm really only going to talk about one part of it. I'm okay let's get to it. I never thought that I would have an emotional reaction to watching a hockey player. Shoot a puck into an empty net with no real stakes. Not I've seen it a million times. It's so funny this quote that I saw online. It's like Rubber Biscuit go into net me feel good. How Oh simple it is? That's about it there. Were a couple of guys you took shots. And they were in the low nineties mid nineties and I I analysts have felt bad for them. Because obviously they're young and they're doing their dream. What everybody saw? Ross knock great. Yeah they didn't sign like presumably. They didn't come to this event looking in this contest. They're put into nowadays people volleyball then. Firkh steps up and the other thing I thought was well. Maybe the maybe the equipment Whitman might not be up to snuff compared to what they have in the NHL is also. What are these guys ninety eight but it's registering as ninety five? Who knows then for accepts his his first shot is like one hundred four point seven or something? Well Yeah and you go okay while the equipment works and then I even asked him after the Game mm-hmm when he felt when in the process of shooting did he know that it was solid shot.

"It is a lot of that trick stuff online nowadays and I think fans really like it and the guys like at two so Yeah Yeah we'll see that could be another accomplish in that to our takes. I would expect there's diagram so there's four targets sort of halfway between the blue you line in the faceoff dots closest to the platform. Then there's two larger targets on the on the Blue Line than at the red line. It appears that there's two targets near the boards and one target labeled the arch target which I'm assuming means it'll be shaped like the Saint Louis Arch. Yup that makes the problem with it being like dude perfect episode and listen. I have found myself falling down the dude perfect rabbit hole two in the morning on Youtube and if anybody has never watched it's very entertaining but you know it takes them like a hundred takes Always wonder that yeah I just want to be there and have my little tic account tally now because I don't WanNa burn day watching watching five dudes woods miss a million shots before they finally hit that one perfect on am so any of you don't know what the heck we're talking about dude. Perfect as a team guys on Youtube. You've and they just every week is a different sport or a different setting whether it's Frisbees or golf or basketball and they just try and come up with as many trick shots as they can. Whether it's shooting basketball the ball off the top level of a football stadium or throwing a Frisbee while on you know escape whatever it is and it's always amazing and they always go go nuts but I always assumed part of the reason they go nuts because it's taken them three hours to get that one. God edited in so like I said did I just I would now. The perfect version of this event is that somebody comes up. You know like let's say you know Khobar gets on the platform and he just drills those jars. Yeah I just this is maybe where some of the prize money could be allocated to. There's an insane shot in one guy gets it gets. It's a chunk of cash or something I think that could add some Make the stakes a little higher. This just seems like this sort of thing you need to practice for and I can't imagine how many opportunities opportunities you have to get on a platform thirty feet above the we'll get our guys in practices arrogance of sportscenter balcony true. You'd have to tear out the railings but anyway so those are the events It should be. It should be fascinating it should we really. I hope it all works out and I always having the players miked up is fun and getting getting a slight sliver of their personality is good. Now we'RE GONNA we're talking about the format and this is really just included this part so I can complain and talk about how great everything was when I was a kid again. So I'M GONNA put down my that's just turn your turn your level down couches around. I mean we've talked about a bunch of times already in this podcast. I just really would like to see them. Go back to two teams for lines. Three forwards two per are pairing three-goal. He's one goalie plays every period. I just like I said for the fans and for the players and just for tradition Shen and ritual. I I the fact that it would be boring. Doesn't matter to me because the the three on three contests aren't intrinsically more interesting because they're three on. I'm three moment standout. That happened or get like John Scott being the NHL MVP didn't happen because it was three on three now. You you can't draw that up. Yeah but that's I mean my favorite all star weekend ever took Owen Nolan calling his shot against Hashtag prior to John. Scott was probably the most memorable all-star Quantico moment and it happened late in the third. I think it was late in the third period of a game and it just it just happened like you said you. Don't draw it up so anyway. I have some suggestions I throw these out every year but I've never thrown them at you before. So here's my and they change from time to time but here's my suggestion. I think the All Star game should should be played before the season starts adding the final preseason game should be right. Presumably less players will be hurt. Less players would have an excuse not to go. They wouldn't be tired. They wouldn't want vacation. Nobody else would be getting like. It's not like it is now. Where seven hundred guys go to Turks and Keiko's hosts and sixty guys go to Saint Louis and you can have as you wouldn't have the crosby situation where you say? Well he's only played twenty games out of a fifty game possibility. You just have no. These are the best guys we know. These are the best guys. Never mind how their season this season is going. You don't have to worry about coaching changes. You don't have to worry about last year. Saint Louis is in last place you know at the end of first game again for the season starts and then to fill the gap APP that we have now is suggested during the winter. Classic the weekend in-between the conference finals and the soup. Sorry the big game for football but you suggested that you liked having the game the winter classic on New Year's Day. Yeah I think I mean first of all moving the all star weekend. I think anyone would be up for that. It doesn't really matter where it falls. A lot of other teams have their own team are weekend earlier in the year. So I think having it as part of like s season in kickoff and fast and all that kind of stuff I think that's a great way to open the season as long as no one's getting hurt and all that kind of stuff but I mean it's the same risks in February so I thought about your proposal that the winter classic is Nice on On New Year's Day right this could be because I'm just a Canadian. Kid who grew grew up wanting to look forward to that on boxing day. We've got the world. Junior is the fact that you look forward to win. Classics feels like said growing up leg. I was to me. I was like thirty when they introduced. Yeah it's a cold winter day I mean I just know that that's Nice Lazy Day inside where you know you have good TV. So that's fine. And I'm glad you actually Suggested it because it allowed me to come up with his new idea which I think is even better all star game at the end of the preseason winter classic January first. But here's the twist we refer to them all as Stadium Series Games right make it an actual series. Whoever hosts the all the winter classic on January first their opponent that day gets to host the next game which would be against the same team so for example this year? It was what in Dallas with Nashville this season. Then on what is now also weekend would be stadium series weekend. It'd be home and home series and now Nashville Host Dallas so both teams get to host one in the same series. It actually is a series two outdoor games one on on New Year's Day and one the weekend in between the big game and the conference. No that's definitely an interesting take i. I wonder how that would work. I think a lot of home teams fans. I do travel for those less reason to travel last reason to trial though is that it's because I'm thinking from the business for cuts down ticket sales and I mean we had one of the best winter classics ever. I think this year with just how the game happened and the conditions and things like that and so Have recreating that later. I think I like that. Each one is unique For Example Stadium Series we have coming up is Colorado Springs. It's very much based around the air force there to teams who are connected to that. So I don't know I. I like their unique in that each one. Can I come back at me absolutely well. No but I mean I think there's a way to play off of what you're saying. Yeah so yes. Good to the uniqueness but now you have an opportunity so national comes in in Dallas says this we are. This is what we do these are the jerseys go all everything. Flipside is when they play in Nashville. We get to see road versions of I do like that. I like where you're going with that actual and now is Nashville turned the host and Nashville. You know what I mean and so you can do goofy little things like Dallas music scene versus Nashville's music scene or doesn't doesn't even have to be a one for one thing. It'd be Dallas with Rodeo in Nashville with music or you know if it's Chicago vers New York pizza versus pizza right like you can find ways to highlight the uniqueness of each market within the context of the series on the road versions of what would be fun as battle bird and it's close Edmonson wanting out I'm on board or how about. I don't know how you would do this. But if you can find a way to reduce the price of tickets for fans of the other team that are traveling you know like if I'm a kings fan traveling to Colorado now obviously this is a neutral site I mean I know it's in Colorado but it's not in Denver but if you know they can see them is zip. Code is from so in California. Maybe the ticket is fifty percents offer of travelling fans. There's an item or providing. I mean if it's if it's like Montreal Toronto Providing buses or discounts on train tickets or whatever the case may be assisting fans in getting or have a section in each so for example. Let's say L. A. were hosting one and Colorado the we're hosting the other. You could have a section in Colorado for kings fans and then a section in La for Colorado fans. You could set up a fan contest. Social Media's I'm just. I'm just saying you're going to marketing I should I really should. I mean honestly. It's really the road versions of the jerseys that I'm happiest coming out of this conversation because I don't know how you would do it with the Colorado but instead of black and white we'd do maybe different colors right with burgling Glenn Gold or something. Yeah keep from helmets. y'All highway yeah. Unless now I'm just just building my fantasy world chrome. I'm on the road. Gold at home look old metallic I mean and gold gloves instead of white gloves not the worst hire NHL and on for years. I still don't understand why we don't have Stanley Cup shaped body pillows. I I don't know if I have anything anything to say to that. Come on that would be good. Maybe Valentine's Day gift coming up a good anything. Yeah no listen. I'm not ashamed to say I've got about a pillar. It's oddly Lee. The right shape for that. Yeah it's perfect. Imagine the social media posts of people sleeping with their Stanley Cup. Hired Joel although I've already even sort of anyway Robin I want to thank you very much for joining me. Thanks Jessie this has been fun. Yeah kings fans. I hope you enjoyed it. It is. Nhl All star weekend and h Dell All star classic weekend also although the game on Monday four days of all star content for you we are the kings are going to try and get you as much as you can so keep your eyes and ears open and thanks for listening.

"This is a whole right here. This is not about politics. This is about health emergencies. Can't wait brought to have some theoretical face about the better idea. Well never ever we behind. Every Humphry Humphry pretty nearly in Europe. And this matter of medical care Ross innocent. I'm physician that means you have a right to come to my house and conscripts me means you believe in slavery. Anyway I am Benjamin Day and I'm Stephanie Nakajima and this is Medicare for all the podcast for everybody everybody who needs healthcare except rampal. Yeah except for Rand Paul. Wait a minute why not ripple the Rand Paul was the voice that you just heard in the intro reasonably pointing out that universal healthcare is actually just like slavery. Oh my God we can definitely out for this system. He's a doctor right right. He can take care of himself. Maybe Canada will have pity on him. He can apply. So we're here. We're making podcast. This is a little bit crazy but Stephanie. Why why don't you tell me? Why did you get into this Movement for Medicare for all I spent several years either underinsured or just totally uninsured until I basically moved to a country that had universal health care I moved to Tokyo in two thousand ten about I walked into City Hall to register stirrer my residency in the word and I was asked while I was destroying if I need health insurance which is like Oh are you handing that out and it turns turns out that they were I had no idea before I moved there that you could just sign up for health insurance in Japan. I'd been used to working jobs in the United States. That didn't give you health health insurance and I came to view it as a luxury item Even though I actually really needed health insurance I had asthma And my the second shock after realizing leising that could sign up for a public health insurance in Japan was that you don't pay a set premium and Japan so you pay just a percentage of your income and and at that point I was unemployed. I just moved there and so I got a full comprehensive public insurance. It wasn't like a bronze plan or like Shit it plan or whatever for the equivalent of twenty dollars a month. Now I'm here I don't know why no I'm the director of communications at healthcare. Now the National Grassroots Welfare Organization. Even though I was really comfortable in Tokyo with health insurance and I wasn't sure what was GonNa Happen with the affordable care act I my friends and my family Identity was still American and I wanted to come back and fight for them And Fuck up the insurance companies so ben tell me tell me about you. I also want to fuck up insurance comedies comedies because my story I actually got screwed over when I had health insurance I didn't lack insurance and I actually had decent health insurance I've been living in upstate. New York And I ended up Being admitted to the hospital for few days with a panic disorder kept having panic attacks. Although although I didn't know that that's what they were I thought I had some terrible physical illness. And actually my doctors misdiagnosed me. A bunch of times And when I was being discharged From the hospital my doctor sat me down and he said you know. I don't want you to freak out panic CIA but your insurance company is not going to cover your stay in the hospital. They've denied your claim And I didn't freak out until I got the bill which was about four thousand dollars At the time I was earning fourteen thousand dollars a year so so it might as well have been four million to me So when I moved back to Boston shortly after that and this whole fight with the with the health health insurance a company I haven't organizing background and I found this organization called mass care. They were The Massachusetts single payer nation. I didn't even know there was a social movement in the United United States to win. Healthcare is a right And I was like ready to fight. I was ready to go so they hired me and this was almost fifteen years ago. And I've been a fulltime organizer in in the mood for Medicare for all ever since right now. I am the director of healthcare. Now an organization you may know as one you also work at the desk immediately next to yours We work out of Boston. And you know we decided to do as podcast because we wanted to kind of let the public in All the amazing news that we hear around the country about the fight for Medicare for all the organizing that people are doing and just You know how far we've come since I started those fifteen years ago but also how hard it's going to be to get it over the edge one of the reasons I'm really looking forward to this. PODCAST is because I think there isn't really consistent pro Medicare for all voice right now For people to hear to go to for a clear understanding of Medicare for all or For reference point four how to understand like the news they're hearing about Medicare for all attacks and what different you know. Candidates are saying The mainstream media isn't really faithfully reporting on this issue They report on it. They're very centrist Lens and sometimes with a very obvious bias. And we're here. I think to dissect the the news. We already do this every day. Sitting next to each other and the offense that we thought why not just stick Mike in front of us and then at least other people can wasn't in on the conversation station And so we're here do that to look at these attacks through the Lens of you know frankly the rest of the world at already has universal. Healthcare debate is ridiculous. I I don't think you even need like a pro medicare for all I would settle for like a balanced dot totally pro healthcare Industry Lens. So we're going to cover a few things with this. podcast cast one. We're going to go over the big political fights over healthcare Both at the national level obviously in Congress Medicare for all has really gained steam but also at the state state level which You don't hear as much about often but that's where a lot of the fight is happening. Also we're also going to talk about like the big breakthroughs in the social movement. Meant to make healthcare right. Big Organizing Victories This is never covered in the news but we hear a lot about it and it's our job actually to coordinate the grassroots efforts around the country and then we're going to break down like the constant total stream of bullshit that ends up being pushed into the media about healthcare era and Medicare for all. And it's honestly I kind of see this. This podcast is like a form of personal therapy for me so I can like event unlike. Get all this stuff off my shoulders. I don't know about you but this is already been Cathartic. Yeah I'm feeling a little bit better already. It's just going to be better from here so please everyone everyone Thank you for joining us on this journey Share on social media. That we're here we're alive we're GONNA be coming back to you next week with content and please tell everyone you know because we are coming..

Remember your second question. Are you eating right now? I was I'm not anymore figured you guys gonna answer. Anyway, we've the phone twice for you. Now, I feel like the idea that we don't answer the phone is not something you're allowed to believe. Oh, I know. I don't eat more. Now. I'm a firm believer that you guys are not full shit. The phone. Fucking fall. And you're so full of shit. Back again. Do you? Remember your second question. Oh my gosh. Oh, all right. What is different between a proxy server, a whole and VPN and what what is your better choice between the free. Okay. Allison answer. This question doing from. What are you trying to figure out how to browse your net anonymously? Yeah. I yeah. Because like, you know, you go on the dark web and shit, and I have a VPN and all that. But like with this you need to bridge. But like, okay. So what if I have a VPN what's the point of having a proxy or bridge? You know what I'm saying? Like, I I don't understand like why you need all that shit. So I don't totally know the answer to your question. Okay. When I know is VP N is essentially like, basically, it's a virtual private network that that's what stands for it. What it means is like you are now part of a network that is elsewhere on the internet. So it's not technically a server it's more like you are. Connected to a different network and in your your traffic, all when it hits the internet. All looks like it's coming from this network which have somewhere else. I don't know. Exactly what a proxy is. So I don't know the difference between that and the minor saying is it's it's a server that you're that is between you and the place you're connecting like, you're sending your traffic. I try to you you send it to see so. Okay. So I guess that's the difference. Proxy servers like an actual, computer. You're hitting whereas of APN is a network that you're connecting to. What are you doing on the dark web? You know, just off and stuff. Hello. Hey, are you there? Hello. Is there way at can you chat with him? I mean numbers are coming in so fast. I don't know how we would do it. Can't you see which ones like connected with like, no. Because we connect over that phone. Country for jerky is ninety. Well, hey, we're still here. Don't hang up back. What's your what's your question? Okay. So I like ever since like ninth grade or something I've been like working real hard on my English. I don't know if that's parents. Your English is your English is amazing. Oh, thank you so much and ever since like twenty six I've been really working hard and trying to like get into college abroad. And so towards the end of last year December last year, I take the tea and I get a fifteen forty grand. That's really good and like in two thousand sixteen Trump comes into office at obviously, there's a travel ban. And I'm the longer allowed into the USO Cup. I really attack. Oh, that's okay. Just take your time. We're here. And so like the only option I had then was Canadian universities. And I try to register to the best of my ability on the internet. And I just like there was the west sites all of them were so bad and like just like hard to actually use like so many problems like, for example. My name is all cats and English. But because that's how we do it in Syria. I don't know who decided that. And so like on a lot of the like websites, I put my name, and they were all like, oh, your name is case sensitive. So you need to capitalize it as it is in your life passport and. I go in there and put it in all caps because that's the way it isn't my passport. And they're like we can't accept that. And so I literally hit him up. I. I call them. I call the university. And they're like, we don't know that they're just like, we don't know flat out that that's like McGill. Oh, yeah. I went to McGill there. I had very bad experiences. When I needed help with them. You went to got. Okay. Yeah. So like, I kind of missed all of my deadlines now. And it's like these three months have been super depressing roomy. I like, I just don't know. What to do? I've been like searching for counselors on the internet. I put Hurley pointed anyone and like, I don't know if that's even something that like you said anything so. Yeah. I don't know what I'm doing. Let's try to help. So it sounds like you need somebody. You literally need somebody who can help to navigate the college admissions process. I mean, it's not like we know first hand, but we can will help. Yeah. Well, that that's I get so much. I'm really sorry that you're going through this. How long have you been in Turkey? I've been since like twenty thirteen and are you with your family? Yeah. Can't gather. What's your family like like what mom dad siblings? I have three siblings. All females. That's how I grew up younger or older. I'm the youngest kid and what like what's your life like in Turkey right now. Like where are you talking to us from on from Essen like I've been in mesh on this whole time ten and I can't like go to Ghazi and tap. I can't go to temple unless I have a permit. And what does it take it? That. You have to have either family somewhere off, and they don't always accept that. Or you have to have something like a test or something like when I took my say t's I had to fly out on car. And so what do you do your done with school? What are you doing with yourself? I like, I skipped I went to school year earlier like like, I get your and so yeah, I'm done with school now. But like, I'm most old as a senior your student, and are you working? Not really Alex said that like he was your dad, and it's okay. You know, I'm not trying to. Yes, it's fine. Not working. I was just curious to know like the thing is as Syrians were not allowed to our care, regardless. If you have like a college degree or anything, I think we simply instated some sort of process for people to you know, convert their diplomas college diplomas and try to work here. But for now, it's mostly like educational field, and like markets and stuff that get the jobs that can work. But otherwise, no can do anything. How do people just like survive financially? We've just been like borrowing money from my grandpa from my own call for the past like three years four years. And that's what we've been subsisting off for the whole time that sound. Really, really, really hard. Yeah. Tim has a question for you. Go ahead. Hey, how's it going south? Okay. This is a kind of uninformed question. But I'm just really curious. So I live in Berlin, Germany, there's a huge Syrian population there. And I've met a lot of Syrians. And I'm just curious is that I don't know. I'm I'm genuinely cares. I don't know. Is that a thing that you guys think about is Germany so possible to emigrate to or has is that become really difficult. We wanted to go at some point back in like twenty fifteen my dad and sister wanted to go to Sweden or something like one of those countries. And basically what you do that is be get on a boat, and you go all the way there. But right, all it's very dangerous and a lot of the smugglers are, basically criminals. Do you might get still income? I get you're definitely gonna stuff stolen on the way there. You might never get there. You might think whatever. But like my dad and sister, we're going to go the way it works. Is that like once a family member goes there like your parents like your dad, he can reunite and with all of? With all of his children as long as they're under the age of eighteen and so my sister was above eighteen and if you had to go. I feel like it was really scary. You know, the days weighed in to it. And eventually. The day came they were going. I went to school, and I turned and turns out they hadn't gone and. Like right about that time. There was a law that was put in place that would prohibit Syrians from traveling between states between Turkis states or cities without a permit. And so my dad was on his way to like wherever the city was where they were going to get smuggled, and they didn't let him get get through. And so here turn and that was that. Did it did it make you feel? Did they make you feel disappointed or sad that he wasn't able to make it or were you just glad that he was not in harm's way. Obviously, I was come freighted. But. A lot of my friend had gone meant that we're going to reunite with them. And it's really not good here in Turkey, and no jobs. Yeah. I obviously, I I don't enjoy my stay here. And so I would have been happy had he like gotten there safely and reunited with us. They're put this e you know. Yeah. Totally. You don't like anyone hawks pay. picks. So Alex day has been asking people on dude. It's really important to know that reason to me to know he said he wants to with pretty much everybody. Whether they think they're PJ or an Alex foundational thing. Alex. Recklessly? Thank you sow. We're the same height. How tall PJ? Hey eleven. Yeah. You're on six feet. I can't I'll walk around on my knee. All right. We're gonna try VR. We can help you. Okay. Thank you so much. Yeah. I love you so much. I I'm both in Alexander PJ. No on your an ally year. Okay. Everyone has all right. Take care love you. Bye. So we have our conversation last Thursday since then we found too many the McGill admissions department who's looking over sows transcripts and helping him navigate their system. Macgill's student run Syrian student association is also helping out if you are one of our listeners any working college admissions in North America, and you want to help out just in this an Email reply allocate media dot com. Obviously, the problem sows having is way way broader than just him. There's tons of smart Syrian kids who have been displaced who want to go to college, and it's very hard for them to get there. If you're interested in this. We found to organizations that seem to be working on it. There's one called juicer J U S O R. It's a group of Syrian ex-pats trying to help kids. Find opportunities. The other one is the institute of international education. I e they've program called peer where they tried to find scholarships and opportunities in connect them with refugee students said he keep us updated. So if there's more news with him, we'll let you know. And finally, just thank you to everybody who called or who wrote in it was fun to ineptly trying to solve your problems. Thanks.
