"A breeze like no. It's weird dead of summer. No air conditioning. You can stand on stage. At a witness greets vicky was talking about a ghostly breeze as well. That's just crazy. Yeah it's is but that's the cool part is that we had vicki first. And then you're just here. Basically confirmed ailing us this yes confirming everything. And that's so strange that everyone pretty much has the same things happen to them. And you don't even know. Start when i was a kid in shows they're like i'm little little and then in dance there so like that was around. The same time vicky was in school right and so then. Kim isn't there during those times but viki and i are and then there's a segue for moyer viki and i go to community theater. And we're in the jim knight twin like and they're experiencing the same things but like i never really. I had stuff left and right at dorothy summers. But i didn't spend any more time in there after junior once. I was in community. You know once we started act to at jiminy twin. We were in there anymore and so and then it moves to vicky being with kim because they both i believe worked on the one with dr xiao horn. it's so crazy. Yeah it's like a five degrees of kevin bacon except as the free goes. Dorothy summers theatre. Maybe it's just the ghost of east central university. It might be. Yeah because i mean there is supposedly an elephant buried somewhere on. What have you ever heard this story. Yeah so so. There's a story. There's like an i don't know like like i want to say i really do wanna say that somewhere in the university like the story is addressed officially but the urban legend is rather that Crazy like hundred years ago and it was one hundred years ago like whenever i was in college. one hundred twenty years ago A circus teams and While the circus was here like one of the elephants died in supposedly the elephant is buried. I've heard in different parts of campus. Most common variation is under the fifty yard line. Like but why so full of shit. Who even makes up. How much bill is where you wanted to come up with that. No i mean. Stranger things have happened. Eyo we're sitting here talking about ghosts and entities and all these stories and experiences we share and i'm like no a fucking elephant didn't die there. Listen i believe what i believe. I don't believe that anybody did you. Kim did you have anyone else that had like some really significant stories. Tell you anything that happened to them. sam talked a little bit about like being touched his face being touched. Yeah data rest or he would be the he would be like. Oh i want to say. He's he's like his face in his hair. Just like his hidden. General like not necessarily like charest but li- win windblown or lake lake boot. Less caressing in you know you got looped by boo exactly And i mean the whole building is neatly creepy in proc. Storage in long-term costumes orage are to play are probably the two places. Spent the most time in the dark in that theater japan because the light switches are so fucking hard to find and after twelve years. You would think that i'd be able to do it like line let alone you know just in the dark. I always forget where they are but no. It's it's easy to. It's okay so these places are some of those where you're trying to like get across the room in. It's completely dark and you're slowly making your way in you. Keep hitting everything in everything you're thinking. Oh my god and heavenly. I assist room so packed with joan. I ever going like yeah. It's like vicky had mentioned that. An jim nine twins like overall eidinger upstairs. And i'm like why would you do with. Oh my god. It's only upstairs not only upstairs. But the only way to get up there is a this tiny tiny little circular ricky fucking talk. I said the same thing i said. It's like you're in a well. It's like someone put a staircase in a fucking will to go up the frigging stairs and turn off the lights and then go back down the stairs in the door. No that what. The thing stays lit up the little collins as little. So there's there's a light switch at the top and the bottom usually left. i don't anyways don't fucking away. Most theaters most theaters leave. Ghost light on on stage to and if they don't they should because that's just general safety thing. Yeah i mean. There's there's a reason why they leave the lights on. I'm tom bowed will lead like on You've reached the end of our episode. Thanks for giving us your time to tell you about this true crime. Join us next time for a whole new case on the sirens podcast.

"Really good friends. And i said so. Britney did a big huge follow tap dance in the middle of the show that was that they reported they picked up my daughter's tap dancing routine found on the stage. No joe and my daughter had already moved in nashville. She did that show. She move on national after she did that. Show that my hair stood up. That's when you really feel you know that they're affecting produce my daughter's happening thing routines and they have it on thin running on my gosh. Was it you that i heard somebody had heard like growling or something. I half was that you. I have heard growing have been actually in a play. It wasn't me. It was the kids from nineteen ninety. Ninety eight that group of kids we were all on stage and the manager was stage left and she kept hearing this girl and she thought it was one of the guys aggravating. And she gets when she. You know be quiet. It was during a play and unless she just turned thunder speed around the catch him and there was nobody there so she waves it. She's freaking out. She's ready to just walk off. The stage should just stay with me and sure enough because there's a staircase that goes right behind the face managers that it goes down and then you turn and you can go into the audience but you have to open up a dual and so anyway. That was open. That staircase was open and sure enough. We're staying there. And we heard that brow really evil brow balata we all turned around and then we felt the rupp rumble of it. Just rumbled with more wholesome and we. We had yeah we and even our director stop without the audience felt everybody checking a little earthquake like earthquake. You know. it's not like weird now. I would have quit assist this show. This that is so crazy We wanted to ask you while we have you because well holly was trying to look for like information. All we really found was the year that that it was built And we couldn't find any information further even on dorothy summers yourself in hollywood telling me that a lot of people actually see the ghost or hear the ghost of dorothy summers and we know nothing about her welsh in general. Let back the older kids like. I'm all for the older kids. You aggravate this little bit. Because dorothy summersville alive. When all this stuff was going on she was route for school. So it's not. Dorothy is is not hurt and there was a fire earlier after the building had been built there was a fire in there and i had to rebuild part of the theater. And that's the for. No one was hurt right. So i really don't think there's been a tragedy there in my personal opinion is i just. There's so many people were in dance groups that come through there you know. That's an entertaining. I just think eighth off of of the people there and then imitates then you know. Yeah and that's so once you're and when it wants your stuff some wind ago type crap we also have to remember that you know before there was ever a college there at all. I mean this is smack in the middle of oklahoma and so it's native american lands. And you know all that that's indian territory. There's no telling what constantly we're in agree with that. To the last thing that i wanted to hit this is just like a surprise. Bonus out of nowhere because mom was like. Hey ask vicky about the gemini twin too and so a The majority of my acting career After so at dorothy summers i was i was small i was in the broadway productions and stuff like that an act to stuff there but once we started mainly taking over the gym so dear everyone the gym and i used to be a theater. It was twinned theaters since the name. One of them sat like three hundred seven people the other ones that like two hundred something people so now. It is a community theater. When you walk in when you go to the theater you go to the left to watch the place so the right side is our side as the thespians of the world and so. That's where our wardrobe is. There's tons of closed. There's makeup jewelry. All the costumes props set stuff is over so that side of the theaters. Basically gutted and we use it you know to get ready and then go to the stage from the other side of the stage at who is a community theater that's what. Act since for everyone. Thank you for saying that. They no problem so Mom said that you would have like i. I was there. I mean so much of my like junior and high school career. Whenever i wasn't in something at school and i had several people that saw things and saw a lady and address and saw things behind us in heard things and that that building doesn't have as much history i think it will it opened in nineteen seventy two but at the same time you know. I'm the president factors that. But i don't know when it shut down. I don't know when we started doing stuff. They're like i really don't know. I just know that the first movies that were played there where robert redford movie. Barbra streisand movie. And it was the nineteen seventy two but anyways to bomb said that you would probably have stories and she said she has some and so. I'd like to know years at that okay. So that theater that also that if you don't have the lights on it's pitch black in there so one one night i was working on the set and i was there by myself i am working on and we had a guy he you know he was special need and he wanted to apply. For course me. I'm gonna find a way to put this man in a play as he loved it so much but he would every night he would come in and he would go to the side that you were talking about. That has the theater where where you sit. And he would come in he would always say vicky you know my name and he would come to the stage and wait for me and i was his routine so i'm in there working on set on the other side and black in the theater stages and so i'm working and i hear him i really do. I hear him come in and walk up on stage and you could hear him walking up on the age and then he said vicky. I'm in here. I call out his name on the only called. I'm in here in the usually comes right. Meet his routine me. So i'm working in. He didn't have right timmy. And then a couple of multiple stage again. Vicky and and i said i'm in here off name again and he didn't come to me and i thought what is he doing so walk in there and i flipped on the light and no one was in there. I got my camera. And i took a picture of and then when my back then you had to develop. You're so right.

We're doing a doing a play that we written the principal paper and one of the characters name thomas scene and we had a night standing on our set. That happened this time day. Then she had to go pick up her kids from school and i'm sorghum by myself and i'm not kidding you guys. I'm what i walk off the state of on the edge of the states and all the sudden heard a wall the whole stage thought. Oh my god. We didn't get a wall and i'm a. I'm a stickler on set building. I know that most of that thing right. I know it was both so. I thought oh man has to set bill and i turn and walk behind the the set and nothing has fallen not fallen. That's my throat cam outta here. So i left my god lynne. One night the kids from high school in high school director. They wanted to go ghost. Busting okay. I'll take up the little bit so we could get up there about midnight and we walk up on the stage and we're on the state and something heavy fell right in the middle of thank you for everybody's screaming about children trying to try and write down the stairs. You walk in about an so. Whatever we calm down i turned. I flipped on the work. Like see what though nothing was on the stage. Nothing and there's times when you're up there and i'll see something punching the curtain the main curtain and you nobody up there. Yeah yeah oh my god. That same thing happened to us. Whenever i was in dance asli so we had. We had multiple classes there. And i can't remember who are helpers was i wanna say amy but it was me and leeann and i will once again at this time. I was waiting on my babysitter. And you could see those curtains moving and liu and just went stomping over there thinking one of the kids like gone rogue and were there things yes in. There was nobody there. She came back and she goes. Well i guess they ran off. And i'm sitting there going like i know more about this place i'm telling you like i don't wanna sound crazy. You know what i mean. I was like. I didn't say anything i was like correct me. I know what mean one that we were up there and we were at a couple of kids slept with me and the the lighting person forgot to turn off the main life. But you have to go upstairs to do that. And so We're walking upstairs and there's at the at each in the hallway. There's a soda machine or snack machine but when you go when you go movement package path it it'll click on. It won't come on unless somebody walks in front of it. And it clicks on a mix of sound so we go up there and we're we turn off all the lights not pitch black in the hallway and in the theater and everything we walk out of the theater and we're all together and somebody out the foreign bohol walks in front of that. That means the thanks noise. Then we are. These and i looked up and there. There's nobody counting eyecare some walking in flip flops. So we take off running and i. i'm hitting the elevator. Buttons can't and violence the elevator door that we all get inside and then we hear the flipflops running to the elevator and the doors not shutting. And it's it's going slow to me. And i'm like that's the first time ever i really did. I started to cry. Not kidding you started to cry because we're going to be something and that's what that we didn't anybody but we could hear him. It was crazy and not too long ago. Yeah that's the whole thing like like any entity whatever's in there if it's ten of its one of them. I don't know what it is. Strange that we all from like generational we have the same freaking stories like yeah. We have the same story. The same thing has happened to multiple people. we've all seen. we've all heard it. Those kids feet are unmistakable. Insee here on the stage is unmistakable. Slapping of the sounds of that because i think the staircase was metal. If i remember correctly. I just know that it was loud like yeah. You'd thundering up and down it to get on right age you had to be real careful the quiet when you hear when you hear them going up and down and that's not human being it's loud and there's nobody there yeah like nobody there but it just it's just like they're anri right. Yeah exactly mr hern. Who he's got. He's got a lot of history with north summer theatre. He will separate. Here's retired but he came back to help with still the theft. I think it was for the music man. We were up there. Like on on on and kept hearing this whistle. And i i stopped working at this year and that are found and mr shadow horn said. I've been hearing that for years too late. You so call him about it. You know i was. It was right in our fate. I mean that's one thing that i wonder because like most of the time i had several times over and over i'd have the same directors all the time and so one of them was. Judy tipton like judy was the same way like she'd just talked to it. She just would be on the stage like building said or doing whatever you know like the walls that are like just a giant canvases painting and all that kind of stuff we just have those set imprompt days and she just talked to it. I hear you but you remember how loud she was like. He's like. I hear you back there like you can keep on doing whatever you're doing but if you mess with this and i'm just like i just so glad that i'm just not a crazy person because she's the same thing. I wonder if it. I don't know if they recognize certain ones of us. That are in there all the time and often you know what i mean like. Maybe the whistle was like just for mr. Shell horner you know what i mean. I dunno i just wondered it. I agree with that because you know he hadn't been there. Several years retired and he came out of retirement to help us build this. And then if i'd never heard it with before and it was right your fate. I'm his right. They're not A paranormal group came to do research there from oklahoma city. And they all night there. Let them stay all night in there and then the next day they asked me they said can we show you found but we picked up and i assure so. Are we not show you. Were you listen to expand right right or not sure. So i lifted one of them and it sounded like an old man lacks and now they kick back found up a write a fake right a up above the wing where you have to go to go to work on lights. You're going to buy land landline. Then they played another sound and it was the tap dancing routine. This is weird. We are just nonsense and my daughter will is the one who did the big dance.

Equal Too: How We Change the Law for Disabled People

"Today over one point two billion people around the world are living with a disability. We make up fifteen percent of the global population and yet despite many countries establishing laws to protect our rights. No disabled person is immune to discrimination. Last year across thirty six police forces in england and wales more than seven thousand three hundred disability hate crimes were reported but only one point six percent resulted in perpetrators being charged disability. Discrimination often called abe limb comes in many forms from not providing a wheelchair ramp or an interpreter. At a press briefing point six million spent on the new pressroom still no interpreter to more extreme breaches in human rights such as the practice of shackling or forced sterilization all around the world disabled people depend on laws to safeguard our rights in the uk. We have the equality act in the us as the ada in columbia. There's law sixteen eighteen and in australia. There's the disability discrimination act in some countries. These acts took disabled activists years of blood. Sweating tears to bring in. I highly recommend watching the oscar-nominated documentary creek camp to get an idea of how hard fought the. Ada was in the us but even when there are laws in place when researching for this podcast we came to find that more often than not it falls upon disabled people themselves to enforce those laws or in some cases outright change them

Establishing the Discipline of Conversation Design - Rob Hayes Head of Product at Voiceflow Talks Conversation Experience Design - Voicebot Podcast Ep 209 - burst 09

"Let's talk about design so conversation design. You've probably learned a lot about conversations design of your fast job at ada and the now a voice flow when you think about the practices that people are employing today. What what do you think's the most interesting in terms of how this is evolving. The one of the more interesting things you're starting to see is as as these teams are as the teams are getting established within organizations You know. I think maybe the first conversation designers really get introduced into Organization focused on a specific and then another one for another channel. And now you have. Now you have a discipline established once you have to conversations niners working onto channels. You have a discipline established and so starting to see more of that. The conversation design practice being established. And then you know. They're they're starting to think about okay. We're not building. we're not building an ivy. Our experience and a mobile a mobile assisted interface Separately these are these are two touch points with with the same brands conversational experience. And so how do we. How do we think about consistency across channels ends and then ultimately how do we hand off between channels to the to the appropriate channel. That's best suited to to deliver on this. And so i think one of the one of the more interesting patterns. They're starting to see is just you know what is what is the interplay across conversational channels within a single organization whether that be behind the scenes just in terms of how that the teams approaching it designing for creating consistency of language content personality flows within the experiences to ultimately having interplay between these channels in the future. Yes are you seeing more of that cross channel collaboration. The it's it's happening on the behind the scenes part of a lot. Or there's there's attempts to really get that structure in place to be able to do that. That's how to. How do we share a source of truth on on our on our contents. What is our what is our content management system that we all pull from what is the what is the intense the list of intense that we support and which slice of that does each channel handle and wears their overlaps. Even between you ex design and conversation zion. You know where to these experiences. Start to overlap. an water the assets that were building around for those so you start to see a lot more of on the back office side or behind the scenes thinking about how do we work across channels To save effort redis redundancy but also ultimately to create a you know a a more cohesive cohesive experience for someone who's interacting with our with our company regardless of what conversational touch point. So it sounds like there's more coordination may be than in past when there was basically zero coordination across the different channels different different executives in charge different budgets all these other types of things different objectives So that's yet it's an interesting but are they actually sharing resources they are. They really collaborating beyond sort of the standards and policy level Are they actually creating experiences together. Are they sharing those resources of conversation designers across these different use cases. It has as much as there are enabled to do. I think this is. This is one of the the pattern the patterns that you'd see from from certainly from people with a connie copywriting background or a a u x background. Where this is like. It's a familiar thing because that's what you would do in those disciplines is year. You have design systems. And you've got your your content style guides and these resources that are built to be shared regardless of what channel output to create that consistency. So there's a lot of effort to being done to to replicate those those items for conversational experiences. You know what is our conversation was conversational design system and that includes everything from how we how we authenticate a user through a conversational platform to how we say goodbye. And it's it goes from everything from the the actual user flows the the functional interactions that users having to the contents of what's being said

South Africa suspends Oxford vaccine rollout. What does it mean?

"So we heard. Yesterday that south africa's suspending the rollout of the oxford astra zeneca vaccine because it's a recent study. That's showing that. It's not as effective at against the strain that circulating widely widely in south africa at the moment which is being called the bay one. Three five one. Lineage doesn't quite roll off the tiny as easily as south african variant and. That's the vaccine that most liens are on track to get at the moment so there is so we're getting hates a questions from the audience about this and we're wondering if you might answer a few of us festival. What is it about the south african variant. That makes it different. Why aren't people fighting it off if they've been vaccinated with the vaccines that have been developed. So far sorry. The main changes to the south african variant are in sequence. And what it's done is quiet. Some changes in that spike retain and that spike preteen again is the one that the virus uses to get inside ourselves. And there's a particular bit of it if you imagine it like a hand and repenting door handle those changes a right on the fingertips so they they enhance the way. The virus binds to the cell to the receptor. As you say. We think that that might be why. It's more transmissible just because it's better at getting into ourselves. The other problem is that. I guess against the fingertips. If you're still imagining that analogy thought. Swear the antibodies that are immune system makes to stop the virus from. that's where they tend to bind. Sorry if the south african variant has changed some of these particular spike protein. Bits to get into the cell. Those antibodies bind against it ada. Sorry it's better at getting into ourselves in the first place and then the antibodies that we've made against the spike prating can no longer bind to that bit. So that's the main problem and that's actually a problem. That's not just unique to the oxford astrazeneca vaccine sorry older vaccines a made against the spike protein. And the sequence used for that was from the original wuhan isolate because as soon as the the virus was sequenced in january. Last year in china scientists started making the vaccine then and there But of course we know that the virus has changed over time and it's made these variants like the k. variant like the south african variant. And that means that the vaccine induced immunity that we're all gonna have potentially white whack against some of these new variants and that's actually what's coming out in these trials

Parametric insurance revisited

"I'm very pleased to welcomes darth ajar. Founder and ceo of arbel. Sid many thanks for joining us today. Could you please give us a quick introduction on yourself and you for having me well. It's a pleasure to be on and get a chance of arbel. Just a very brief background. Myself i am. I was on wall street for about fourteen years in the commodities market for the last ten of those i've done everything. From the agricultural products form soybeans we to the oils and the medals and trading quantitative analysis and just being very embedded in in that market and prior to that. My background is the quantum side at interest rates. Macro so that that's me and then it on twenty eighteen. I left to start arbel which will be discussing today. Indeed indeed. No thank you for the introduction. So as you're probably aware we always ask. Our guest is first question. Which is could you please explain our listeners. what is blockchain. And how does it work sure. Yeah i i will give a very brief overview experts. Were much better at explaining but to me in a blockchain is this system off distributed consensus right instead of having a central only determining when say transaction takes place or when a particular event has taken planes yama distribute consensus around that event or transaction taking place and the beauty of blockchain is it allows for immutability in allows berg who've environment where different parties can agree on something happening about a central coordinating forty and this has ramifications across. You know all sorts of industry from banking to insurance to ada and a whole host of other things great. Now thank you for that for that definition so for our non insurance listeners. Could you introduced to us. What is parametric insurance. Parametric insurance has been around for a long time. It was hobbled by many issues. So we're carbon could insurance does is instead of using a human being to come to your farm business house to check the damage done from an event. And hey you. Based on a subjective loss estimate parametric insurance uses data to make that Loss assessment. So you know instead of say a farmer. has a growing corn and a somebody will lead to the farm and checking how much forms jews due to a drought Insurance might a him or her based on the you know either like the output data from the farm or by reach so the goal is to use a data set which is your index and a trigger to make your payment so could be saying rainfall farmer says okay. I want to get paid one hundred thousand dollars. If rainfall in a farm area was below three inches and so what that does is it. Changes insurance from this objective loss assessment process. Which is filled with delays disputes sometimes. Raw to something where data set and a particular trigger when it has hit Generates payment and is completely transparent for all sides and so for the customer benefit right. It's a transparent. You have a peace of mind of knowing okay. This happened this the data showing this homage. I won't get hate instead. Haggling with an insurance company for months on you know how much i paid. And in the meantime you're still on the hook for a damage and it brings up this question of whilst you're not going to be haggling around you. The terms of the policy no way should get a payout are not. Is there any situations where there's haggling around. What is the agreed date. Said that on which trigger is determined on the parametric side. There isn't because that is it. That is basically what parametric insurance contracts should be outlining very specifically this data. Said i'm going to use and when this data said says two inches of rainfall or this data says that Temperatures above one hundred degrees. I will get a payment of you. Know hundred thousand dollars and it can be. I mean all sorts of different ways. We do all sorts of triggers. You can have more complex triggers as well multiple indexes and so on but the point being that is basically what amager insurance contracts should be outlining the idea behind bariatric insurances. There should not be loopholes. I'm course some entities may try to do that but we certainly do not You know our contracts are ages a regular insurance contract you know can be hundreds of pages options and you know all sorts of legally unclear terms then to huge amounts of lawsuits

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott stepping down at end of June

"Last night. Perhaps the least surprising news of twenty twenty one came out that larry scott was stepping down stepping down being a charitable word as the pac twelve commissioner. Nobody better to talk to than jon wilner. Who covers that league. Expertly out there on the west coast john. Great to have you with us and here we go beginning the new year and things are upside down in the pac twelve. What else is new. Good afternoon thanks while yeah There's never a shortage of Of off the field developments. That's for sure on the field. That's kind of the same same story for many years now but but It's it's pretty interesting conference off field. I remember distinctly. It seemed like yesterday although it was many years ago. When when larry was brought in he was brought in from professional tennis everybody raved about him. He did things different. He had media days in new york. He smooths southern at national championship games. And all that out you know. I would contend that he was the right hire for the pac twelve back then two thousand nine to ten and was able to execute on a lot of the high priorities but also argue that he is not the right commissioner for the pack twelve right now and the last couple of years have seen a series of of missteps that have Hurt the conference You know hurt. The brand hurt the football product specifically And just kind of got pulled everything into this. You know Sinkhole how and exactly who will help the pac twelve. Talk some of the candidates that i mean. I've seen at least twenty five names mentioned who is realistic to get this job too. Great question I think the the the the problem is it's hard to know exactly what the patch will presents are going to do because they've got these gigantic media rights negotiations coming up here in a couple of years and so there is some thought that they hire someone from the sports media. industry You know a tv executive basically to kinda head the head the process at the negotiating table But then there's a school of thought that you know they had brought larry scott in from from You know the pro sports world. He didn't have any experience in college. Athletics and and there were problems because of that so they should take a more traditional approach and higher you know a sitting athletic director particularly maybe one that's got You know the football powerhouse so until you know kind of which direction the president's wanna go. It's hard to really pinpoint candidates. But certainly if they'd go a traditional route you can you can figure on some of the top name being being contacted. I would think. I wanna go through every name because i think sometimes i. Maybe i'm dubious of reporters pushing people. But i i've been in that shoe. We've been in those shoes before as you have. But let's talk about a realistic group of people that could figure into this job. Well realistic group You know I was just from from your territory. You know i would think greg byrne If they decided that they wanted to go more traditional route. I would think that there would be some conversations. And they're gonna hire search for him to to do the legwork. I would certainly think that there'd be some outreach. To greg burned you know he He has ties to four different pac twelve schools. He worked at oregon and oregon state We was young He went to arizona state. He was the ada at arizona. Obviously the guy knows college football Which is a big issue for the pac. Twelve right football products gotta get improved. So you know i could see a scenario in which they they at least had a conversation with burnt Maybe even the same thing with g smith you know he. He was the athletic director at arizona state before he moved to columbus I wonder if bob dole's be you know was at stanford before he became the big twelve. Commissioner you know. I i think the actual probably would be smart at least make a phone call and see both i was tired of dealing with texas And ready to maybe move back to the west coast So that those are few names. But i do think that if they go the traditional route. They're gonna wanna have somebody who has been on a pack twelve campus. They don't want to bring in somebody who doesn't understand you know the the culture out here I think that that's going to be important for them. Is is somebody who at least has some ties to the west.

"On the phone. Right now is blake shelton it. We got new song out today We do and It's we kicked around actually releasing this song last last year at the end of the year december and and happy anywhere still kind of having its moment at country radio and we didn't want anything to get in the way of that record because that's been fun record to have and didn't want anything to interfere with what it what it may go on to do And so we backed out. And now we're releasing this all minimum wage. Which i've actually had recorded now for Maybe a year or something and and just you know everything. Kinda got thrown spun out last year. Obviously it did for everybody else and and So we're gonna come with a new album that this'll be the first single off of that album and we're pumped about it just because it's it's up campo it's fun and fully energy and and I definitely need some of that in my life and hopefully Everybody kind need some of that. If you put out a song and it does not go number one. Is that a disappointment to you Well that's been a disappoint not just at this point in my career. I mean if you're going to release a solid radio. I mean you're lying to everybody if you say it's not in the back of your mind that you hope it goes number one. I mean you otherwise. You wouldn't even release it to radio and go through the promotion process and you know all the things that you that you have to do to to be a part of that world. I mean you know. I mean you see. Every week somebody is trying to get their record number one and and You know for me. Not that i expect it to go number one but at the same time. I'm disappointed if it doesn't just because i know how hard everybody on the team works to get those things to the top you know and it just try to get done. Blake shelton on with us. What was the first job you had where you made minimum wage our roof houses in ada oklahoma and they may have been more than minimum wage. I think about. I think i got paid eight dollars an hour and i feel like way back then. Minimum wage might have been six dollars an hour or something closer to that. So man i. I stepped right into the big money. Roofing houses you know. I wrote houses to arkansas. But i didn't. I don't know if you started like i did. I had to be tear off. Guy i before i was actually the guy with the shingles is that. Was that your pat. I never worked up to shingle. In two years. I was a tear off and carry. I could carry by the end of the road. I can carry two bottles of shingles up at a time on on my shoulder which is like a hundred and twenty pounds. That was the only time in my life. I was ever in shape. Of course i was still a teenager. So i had that going for me. How do you feel about the return of the mullet. What do people say about yours back. In the day versus you know kind of the new generation of the mullet. Here's how about it. Because i'm a little jealous And that's been honest. i'm. I'm a little jealous that i don't have the mullet. But here's what i've found. Is you know you look at morgan. Wall he's a good looking guy and he's in shape and and when i've tried growing my mullet out this last last year during the quarantine time i realized for me. You can't be fat and have a mullet lock. You know what. I mean in order to get away with it. You have to have something else going for you and you know back in the day when i had one man. I was skinny. And that's not how it is anymore. And so i'm gonna have to. If i'm going to have the mullet. I gotta lose hundred fifty pounds. There's a lot that's a big number man pat is. I'm sorry bobby. Blake this whole controversy about minimum wage. When it finally gets to you that people are. I don't know whatever they are. Do you roll your eyes or do you go to this Well i've learned over the years not to just roll my eyes. You know until. I really get to the bottom of whatever. The particular controversy is that But when i saw this on was i i mean. I don't want him everything but it kind of a role of the is. Because i think if there's if you can find something offensive about this song i mean you're either you're just looking for fight or you're probably not a country music fan to begin with you know it's i. I really can't draw connection between anything controversial. And i love song. But you know it's It's the times we're in. i guess but we're just. We're proud of the song and and we love it. Which is weird. Because as soon as i heard about the controversy i came on and was just railing against these overly woke folks. It's what i was calling him. And then i started to get pushed back for standing up for the fact that it was a metaphor for life in that i was someone who grew up on minimum wage for most of my life. I wasn't. I was just so irritated in ronnie dunn fight. The standing up for two like why in the world is happening with folks. Think you just gotta go okay. Well that's your your take. We're we're going to keep going on with reality on this road and you can take whatever turn you want to Because it's at the end of the day it's a song about if you got love and then you didn't you've got the everything that matters you know And again if there's something offensive about that then i this is not the the world i wanna live in. Have any of your other songs sparked up debate. Like do people get upset about hillbilly bone. Because you know you know you know. Only you know only time that people get upset about that song when we perform it live and trace sexually points In the in the area makes it makes it big deal every time it gets to the chorus like. He's got a point to himself to be sure you understand exactly what he's talking about. I don't know. I don't know i don't know what to say. Oh i i thought he he points to a hillbilly and the crowd. Yeah that's right that's not me up. Blake shelton's got a couple more questions for you. I was talking to devon dawson recently. Who is one of the writers god's country and he told a story about how they they had sent playlist to you a few songs and god's country was one of the first ones on that playlist. Can you just kind of tell me your version of the story. But hearing god's country i was well. I don't think. I heard the other song that they spent because wanted god's country was the first song on that email or whatever i got and i stopped right there. I was on my There's a rumor going around that. I was on tractor But i was actually on skid steer different kind of equipment. But i had a both in that thing and i was i was mowing and doing some things and i figured out how to our. He's not think. I even tried to open the email to see if i could learn how to use my bluetooth and and And i turned it on. And then i was. I was shocked. I was blown away. I couldn't even believe what. I was hearing. 'cause i knew that it was it was a it was game changer. It was that lacombe. Nothing would be the same for any of us involved after this song is far from a career standpoint and and what it was going to to do you know and in my mind anyway because every time you record song you say oh my god this could do this or that And this one seemed like it would just almost Start a new chapter for me. And it did to be honest It's one of the few times that actually had a vision and trick that the my last question for you if twenty eight number ones now twenty eight like once concerts return. You're at the point now where you could do. Two nights in a city playing pretty much all number ones and other massive songs didn't quite number one is that something that you'd want to do is do two nights and a city making sure you get all the hits in what i wanna play in front of a of a full crowd and two nights probably will be one night too many from i guess i guess if people would promise they would come back in the second half then. Yeah that would be a blast. I used to always think that about george strait. I always thought it'd be cool if he did like a marathon like a four or five hour concert just all these number one hits and it was on. Hbo or or something like that. Yeah that's my big idea for george. Anyway he needs it. I think he's he's in the business for some career advice so i'm gonna hit him up. Tell him he loves it. He loves to work. I'll tell you

"He wanted to see and I guess if you had the closed caption, I mean most people would probably turn it off because it's probably getting in the way of what they wanna see. They don't want to see the rewriting. They WANNA see the the actor actress. But. Anyway they file a lawsuit. I mean look again. How many websites are out there? Do people who are hard of hearing have a constitutional right to go to any porn website. They want and expect it to be close captioned especially when they're not even charging, I mean a lot of these sites of free so basically what they're saying is. If you're going to provide somebody with free porn, you also have to provide them with free subtitles. Otherwise. We're going to get sued, but sued for what you're not even charging any money, but you know I'm sure. There are porn sites out there. That have closed caption. Just go to those. It's the same stuff. What difference does it make every single? Porn site doesn't have to have closed captions just find the ones that do and just watch those right. How simple as that, but no? Now there is a lawsuit. Nobody is being injured by the fact that every porn site doesn't have subtitles because there are some that do you know it also reminds me of the lawsuit. This ADA related this is. Because the sexual orientation, but the the case where this. religious man was sued because he didn't want to bake a gay wedding cake and the only reason he knew it was going to be a gay wedding cake was because the couple wanted him to put the two male figures on the cake right. Obviously they could've just put those figures on themselves after it was done, but they made a point of telling the guy that they you know. This was four gay wedding, and they wanted these gay figures on the top of the cake and this guy who was a religious baker, basically said you know. I'm very religious, I. Just don't think that this is right I think it's a sin, and I would prefer not to bake a cake, knowing that the cake is going to be part of a ceremony with which I oppose and so the guys immediately sued now the point is. Were the were the. Gay couple really inconvenienced at all by this. No, in fact, they probably called a hundred. Bakers maybe more to find a one acre..
