"I gotta think that the memories of the people that you interviewed were both nostalgically gauzy and positive but perhaps also laden with some wistfulness two. I'm guessing right teams going belly up and and that kind of stuff. I curious to sort of the demeanor of the the first person interviews that you did with people who were there or remember elements being there. Would you say it was mostly though happily style or where. There's some real sort of negative pieces to to to those memories honestly What i found amazing about this was Almost everyone i talked to whether it was ray hudson or rodney marsh or clive toy or or Al miller everyone says it was the best time of their lives and that was just a common a common theme throughout the movie. Yeah difficult there were. There were hard times Very difficult times. The league almost went under completely. And the early early seventies late sixties early seventies And it was challenging. But ev everyone interview but said it was. It was the best time of my life the most exciting time in. Us soccer history. The golden era of soccer Those pele years beckenbauer and carlos barredo. I mean just. Yeah so i honestly can't cannot say there was any negative negative Energy at all with these interviews. Why do you think that is because of their. Because of their relative age at the time because they were so unknown they knew what they were coming. Nominee wasn't nearly as exciting as this completely on your a tory row. You know i think so. Yeah i think so. And and they were so appreciated here as well The fans loves them It there was a care even though they were serious about what they were doing there. Was this kind of care free Fly by the seat of your pants demeanor demeanor about the league. It was new. It was exciting They enjoyed themselves on and off the field. So i think there there was a lot of things but they love being in america for these four especially with the foreign guys for that for the americans young americans that i talked to or not young now but were the time Playing with and against these world stars. I mean they. They couldn't have imagined that in their lifetime so it yes it was New on so many levels for for everyone very exciting as as you put this documentary together. I'm i'm sure you're aware of the Once in a lifetime documentary about the cosmos beckenham. Six right. how do you using pele right as sort of a line of demarcation which which is natural and and makes a ton of sense how do you prevent yourself from. Making the cosmo's which for better for worse were gigantic part of the story. How do you. How do you steer away from sort of paralleling that kind of story and door yet keeping them sort of in the mix as well without sort of going too far right because argue arguably illeg league was much more than just the cosmo's but a lot of the i don't know i think a lot of the discussion and the the The the memories and whatever media there is out there around. This tends to always center around this glamour club as kind of like all and be all and it certainly wasn't that right and i think there's been some things having talked to some of the the the players that were around that time that played for the cosmo's against the cosmos. I think there were some things that were slightly leagues agitated as well You know this this notion that they were always out you know partying all the time. It's studio fifty four. Did they go to studio fifty four. Absolutely but they weren't. It wasn't something they were doing like all the time right. It's studio fifty. Four things like that but Yeah i wasn't doing every game. Henry kissinger wasn't always in the stands at exactly exactly it. Would it was something They were with atlantic records and it was. It was for pr purposes. But it wasn't all the time you know by any stretch of imagination So that that was interesting to to to hear that I interview werner roth and we talked about that quite a bit as well but i will say that The yeah the cosmo's were the team. I mean there's no question about it. They would be team and they were at certain points especially Sort of the second part of this film. They were an anchor. They they were an important part of the story. They anchored the story and then You know you you go up. And you talk to other other players and coaches at the time and and their experiences And but at the at the end of the day it it kind of comes back to the cosmos right So i i don't want to give too much away i feel like i'm kind of I'm not. I'm saying a lot without saying that i. I don't want to give too much away. How would you. How would you again through your lens. Literally and figuratively. How how would you describe it. Maybe maybe memories from your from your from your father's well how would you characterize the quality of play relative to where a lot of these quote unquote foreign players. Were coming from. Because there's a lot debate as to whether it was just a you know. Retirement league or people extra paycheck and that kind of stuff. But you know. We're talking about frankly. Some of the best players in the world regardless of where they were in their careers granted. The fields were not necessarily the best for playing soccer but the quality of play. I mean you know. We're talking about.

I i count that as one of the great years of my life because we as a team went from bottom. You know up to near the top and It took all of us and backup goalkeeper. And you know those of us who like me who didn't play that much that year It was But it was great. It was great to be part of that. Goodness and I'm just you know in the middle of it. You don't always like a situation but You know if if you've got a scripture tells you to do whatever you do with all your heart with god is your audience not man and so that was. That's a colossians. Three twenty three deal and So my focus was to do the best that i could do in a way to honor god and to help the team not in terms of self glorification. So was that that understanding and that sort of self-awareness And frankly frankly Nobility so to speak from a personal integrity perspective. Did that sort of way on you a bit then and and maybe help Bringing sort of thoughts of retirement from the outdoor game well it it did And part of it was. Because i was told early on even in dallas. You know that you're probably going to be three or four years and you're gone and Again i think bobby moffett could still play personally i And you know some coaches they just want to change the culture and some co choose i don't i don't think Al miller ever saw me as a threat to him By any means but he wanted to get some fresh legs and a fresh fresh approach and His assessment was that there were better players at my.

"You with me. Glad you could join me the phone number if you would like to be a part of this year program. Is 87797 Eric 87797374 to 5. All right, listen. I realized this is an esoteric conversation for some of you. It shouldn't be. And I want to explain why out of the gate on a on a news talk program. I feel compelled to talk about the Southern Baptist Convention, and I'm not even Baptist. The reason is because it is newsworthy. In fact, every major news outlet today is covering the story there covering it wrong, of course. And I would like to set the record straight. The Southern Baptist Convention is the largest Protestant denomination in America. There are millions of Baptists across the country. Some of them now prefer to call themselves Great Commission Baptists instead of Southern Baptists, they don't They think the Southern branding causes a regionalism issue for him? They had their vote for a new president yesterday. There were four candidates Randy Adams from Washington State, Ed Litton from Alabama, Al Mueller from Kentucky and Mike Stone from here in Georgia. In fact, Mike Stone talked was the speaker at my kids school graduation a couple of weeks ago. Mike Stone was the guy. Everyone expected to win. He is a conservative's conservative. Al Mueller is a conservative conservatives. Well, Al Mohler is like the Southern Baptist Pope Al Mueller has taught and trained almost all the prominent Southern Baptist preachers in America. He is the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. And Linton is a Baptist preacher from North Mobile, Alabama. I think it's North Mobile Baptist Church is name of the church, Uh and he is perceived as a moderate. He talks about racial reconciliation. He's not a critical race theory proponent but has thought that the agitation against it is misguided. And then there's Randy Adams, who really didn't make a bit of difference he was from from Washington state. He got like 675 votes out of almost 15,000 cast. His only big issue was the he's not happy with the International Mission board within the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, A lot of people are the headline. Is that Ed lit in one. Uh and the Baptists reject to the hardcore conservative. That's not really true. Yes, little one with 52% of the vote. But they do a that they essentially take two rounds. They have a primary and run off, so to speak. And whoever unless one person gets 50% the top to go into the runoff. Well. Al Mohler came in third and little came in second. Mike Stone came in first in the first round. Al Mueller and Mike Stone together got 60% of the vote on the nose. Mike Stone is backed by the most hard core of the conservatives. Al Mueller is backed by the Conservatives. Ed let was backed by the more moderate people. Now you need to know some background here. Uh Al Mueller was probably had this election been had last year, a shoo in, But they extended JD Greer's turned by a year because of Covid. They couldn't meet to do a vote. So the Executive Council of the SBC agreed to let Greer stay on another year. Normally one year term. Mueller did not back Donald Trump in 2016. And the hard core conservatives held it against him. In addition, Al Mueller is a very nice man. He is very nice. Everyone who meets Al Mohler tends to liking. And Al Mueller. One reason people to like him is he's not a nasty person, and there are people within the Southern Baptist Convention the Conservatives have decided they dislike like, for example, Russell Moore and Beth Moore, no relation between the two Both of them have left the Southern Baptist Convention. Al Mueller says nice things about both of them. He's not willing to attack them. In fact, Russell Moore worked under Al Mohler for a number of years. Al Mohler has come out aggressively against critical race theory, but he hasn't performed. Remember yesterday. I told you guys that one of the issues we're dealing with in the country right now is a song and dance routines. You can't just say you're against something. You've got to rip off your shirt spray. Paint your opposition across your chest, beat it and scream. And if you're not willing to do that, well, then are we really sure you really are committed to what you say You're committed to Al Miller is not into performance. He's into telling you what he believes. And you either accept it or adult. Some conservatives have gone into postmodernism and decided. Well, unless you do me a song and dance. I can't really believe you're said in truth, and by the way you didn't vote for Trump so clearly your suspect, So those people all went with Mike Stone from here in Georgia. Now, Mike Stone is a good guy. Mike Stone is a committed pastor. He's in Blackshear, Georgia. He is as conservative as Al Mueller is on everything, but Mike Stone is willing to do the song and dance that animal or is not So a group formed called the Conservative Baptist Network. It's a group of people, some of whom are grifters, not all of them. But some, and they have convinced themselves that they are indispensable to the Southern Baptist Convention, and that it is a necessary fight to stop. They left wing drift of the Southern Baptist Convention and you were either completely for them or completely against them. There can be no nuance. And Jesus wept. They ran a political campaign as if they were running someone for Congress. Instead of running a campaign to be the head of a of an intra denominational, loose confederacy of pastors and churches. They engaged in character assassination and smear campaigns, whether it was them or their supporters. Most people think the CBN was behind a lot of it. They were engaged in the Mike Stone supporters. Let me put you that way. Mike Stone supporters were ruthlessly engaged in the characteristic assassination of some very good people. Some very conservative people. But they weren't with Mike Stone, and they weren't with the this group. Therefore they were the enemy and they were treated as such. So a lot of Al Mueller's supporters wound up going with that Litton the more moderate person not because they see eye to eye with lit on every issue, but they wanted to rebuke. The way the people around Mike Stone conducted themselves. So this was not so much a vote against Mike Stone as it was a vote against the people who were aggressively pushing. Mike's told he was repudiated because of them, and because he never said anything about them. I mean, they were going after Danny a can of full disclosure. I have been working on my doctorate at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary deviated is the president there and the man is a conservative. He's just a nice guy. He doesn't get into the tit for tat fights that some people believe they should. These days. He has drafted statements against critical race theory. He's a complimentary and meaning men should be the head of the household, all the things that any Baptist good one he is, and yet he's been, uh, has character assassinated by people tied to Mike Stone because he didn't support Mike Stone. It was really, really gross to see a group of people justify their nasty conduct. In the name of defensive faith. And they've been repudiated. Now. The headlines in all of the newspapers was that the Baptist chose to go to more moderate direction, and it's true Ed Litten. He is a complementary and believes men should be the household. He's against critical race theory. Although he thinks that some of its nuances can be used to examine regulations. He is in favour of talking about Rachel reconciliation. He is believes that the sexual abuse survivors of the Southern Baptist Convention need to be treated respectfully. And so, yes, To that degree, he's more moderate than some. But he's also still believes in biblical inerrancy believes the Bible is the word of God believes in the physical resurrection of Christ, believes in complementary in is, um and on and on the go, so it's not like he's a liberal. He's just not the hardcore conservative engaged in song and dance of burning down the critical theorist that everyone who supports them. So you've got to have some new watch to understand this..

"Freak is going on. As I turned to out who sit out the hell. Do you know this guy so al turns me and says we spent two years together in. World War Two. He said I was a martial arts instructor. And Buddy was a martial arts instructor US together in World War Two in the Marines and they just happened to be both from New York and both drummers so he said so we find that a friendship by being in the Marines together. That's how it started so every concert that but he would come into the east coast. He would call his friend. Al And Al because I became one of top students. I would always call me up and take me along the way so. I was backstage at a buddy concert all the time now why. This is important because backstage at a buddy concert. You meet all the best drummers and that's where I met Morello so I'm sitting down in a chair and without at a concert I'm not even sure. I think it was a club called Jupiter's Franklin Square Long Island and Buddy called us up. It was sitting backstage and there was another chair next to me and it comes walking. Joe Morello with his dog. Matthew Joe was legally blind so we had the seeing idol. He comes in with this dog. Matthew and he says to my right Al Miller my teachers to my left and buddy Sorenson leaped and waved and and it was just so great. How respectful he was to to Al End. Morella to me. I was just young eighteen year old kid. I was nothing but he was absolutely respectful to me. And he's kind of saw me as a student in the next generation so he goes on and he performed that night and he played a drum solo. That was so incredible. In the first set on his snow he played like about a fifteen minute solo on just his snare drum and two thousand people in the audience he was able to bring two thousand people to their feet in the middle of his solo. Just playing a snare drum now listening today now you have double bass in he got symbols. You're crashing even. Get a crowd riled up because we're doing all this for. This guy had a snare drum. He didn't use the other parts of Israel he just used in. The Solo brought the people to their feet brought the band back in came back with the bad and the place went absolutely crazy. He says I'll see a second set and he walks off so I now I'm holding my head in my hands at this time so he just played this incredible solo understand. I turned and I said guys to Al Miller Real. What the Hell did this guy? Just doing that snare drum so my teacher. Melissa I have no idea what this guy just did. Morello crosses his arms and turns to be. It says he played a series of strokes have strokes and full strokes using gladstone stone and molar movement playing pullouts and control strokes so. I start laughing so morillas. `same why you laughing. I said well Miss Perello. What you said just sounded so academic. It was just kind of funny. He said well that's what he did. So I said Okay. Wait a second. Tell me that again. So when he explained it again and mentioned the gladstone stone and Muller movements then I knew I was on a something so my teacher said listen. You've been with being out for several years. Maybe it's time that it takes them less than with Joe so I get Joe's number of the store. He was teaching at was a Sunday night Monday morning. I call the store Tuesday. I'm in a lesson with Morello in New Jersey and I said Mr I just WanNa learn all the stuff that you told me that buddy did. It's what I just want to understand. What the hell that is. So that began the journey of now. Joe Started me with George Lawrence Stones. Free stroke this one hundred percent rebound stroke that when you throw the stick down you allow the stick to we bend into your hands and you're not really controlling the stick your guiding stick. Gotcha and that's that's his technique right. That's that's known techn- Yours Lohan Stones Technique. The free stroke. We throw this thing. That'll let it bounce back. See many of the drums before stone will hold the stick tight the hand they would throw the stick down and they would pull it up and they were controlling the stick and there were hurting their hands. They were getting pain. They were not able to play for a long period of time. So stone kind of realized that if I find allow rebound to be a part of me the physics of movement and it goes back to again. The minds of Isaac Newton's third law for every action is equal and opposite reaction by throw it down and allow myself to relax and let the stig bounce up. I'm using the least amount of energy for the maximum amount of results. Pause for a SEC. LemMe ask you though. Real quick backing up was buddy a student of these techniques or because Joe Morello just call it out and say this is what he was doing or was buddy like we. All kind of know was from another planet and just sort of pulled all these different techniques just by his nature of being a great drummer or did he actually studied these great question. Great question and I asked but he this that I got the answer because buddy was was highly skilled with finger. His finger which gladstone this wrist rebound and molar so buddy told me when he was a young child in his early Vaudeville. He was the opening. Act of Georgia Cohen. Have you ever heard that name? George Cohen I don't think so do the research and anybody anybody hearing my voice. Do the research at who join Jim. Cohen was George. Cohen was a song and dance band back in in the early nineteen hundreds and he was the guy that that wrote many songs that he was the one that really started Broadway.

Buddy rich was the opening act for Joy Jem Cohen now as the opening act but he would go out. Play the drums tap dance singer song? He was opening. Act in Georgia. I'm callin toward also at the US. Doing these shows. George Cohen used. Whenever he was traveling the best musicians in his band he would carry around his first trumpet player. His first violinist his arranger piano player and his drummer. The drummer is that Georgia. I'm Cohen US. Either Billy Gladstone. George Lawrence Stone Sanford Molar. Jeez teasing the guys that were playing behind Georgia Cohen. So Buddy is sitting in the pit watching these three these three great drummers perform at different times and they travelled in a train to go from New York to Chicago Buddy was next to them. Sitting with them not formally taking lessons. Yeah sure learning the gladstone stone and motor movements but he told me he says I got them from those guys. So if you can imagine when I talked to Papa Jones and took a took a couple of Papa Jo Jones. He would tell me a certain time he goes over here. Now here's what you want to accent so use molar. This particular pattern. You'RE GONNA play from your risk so you stone now here. This is more sensitive and little quicker passage. Go to French creek position and use your fingers use gladstone terminology that they use normally what they didn't do. They didn't put stuff in books to carry it on for the next generation. Well yeah that's a good point. I mean it seems like it's it's still very popular to use these techniques but like you said it's it's it seems like back then it was like your everyday language. You're just you're this is how you explain what you're when you're talking to other drummers which. I guess doesn't happen quite as much as it did. The molar technique you about a lot but it totally totally was that everyone knew these techniques talked about it and it was never logged down in books or or to the technology that we have today so here. I am now. I'm in years gone by. It's the it's the middle eighties and I'm traveling now. I'm endorsed with companies traveling around the world doing these different drum clinics in performances around the world so I had study with Morello in shape and now I'm utilizing these techniques and I also studied with Shelly Manne after Morello. What had learned the technique to a certain point? He said. Now you're ready for Jim Chapman. So he sent me to shape into now go from the stone technique to molar so in the process was as. I was traveling around around the world. I'm talking about my clinics free stroke Molin Gladstone. And I'm traveling all these other countries people are looking at me like I got three freaking eyeballs. A WHAT THE HELL IS MOLA. What? What are you talking about? So because of where I lived on Long Island we knew about this stuff outside of the Long Island New York area. No one knew about this stuff. Nevertheless traveling to different countries. Sure so now I what I would do is when I came back from my travels in the early nineties when I came back at the success of my career travelling playing and being involved with endorsing all these companies. It's just fantastic. What I would do is what I come back. I would invite Jim Chapin and Morello to dinner and once a month when I came back I pick up Jim chip into this house. Drive over the Morello. Find a nice restaurant and we'd have dinner and I'd buy these guys dinner if over one hundred or the hundred and fifty dollars spent for dinner for all three of us. It was one of the best investments I've ever been in my life because the stories in the anecdotes and the history was incredible and one day. We're at dinner. And we're sitting down and I said to realize adjacent Joe. You wrote a two great books. Massive study's message studies to fantastic books. That are still deep. But you never mentioned the free stroke in there but yet when I worked with you for almost eight years all we did was the free stroke and I said the gym Chavez said Jim you wrote your book advanced techniques for the minor one of the top. You still the number one drum set book in the world and you said that because of leading the mullet technique that that's what helped you to write your Independence Book Jazz. Why didn't you ever talk about molar in the book? I said the Joe. Why did you ever talk about the free stroke in the book and they both turn to meet the same time and said? Oh everyone knows this stuff you know I think not. And that's exactly what I said. I said Oh I think not. I said because I'm traveling world and no one knows about it. So they both kind of set back in their seats. And kinda got a little somber. I said well. Then this stuff needs to be notation. I said Yeah Guys. You guys got to write this stuff down and put this into it and they send me wrong. We're in late seventies. We'd done writing books. It's now your turn in your generation to do this year you write the book you know the stuff so you write it. So that's when I wrote my book it's your move. This book is twenty six years old. I wrote the book. Get you move simply because it was about explaining the free stroke and molar and I say in that book. I'm not showing you techniques that don fabulous recreated. I'm just trying to be the Messenger to pass on what I learned from. Jim Chapin who got from older that I learned from Morello who got from stone so that was the beginning part of the first book that was no -tated to be able to have the information put into the into the you know the the at least the the lexicon of educational material drummers to make sure they don't disappear forever that's all it was and then from that when ended up showing this stuff to to Joe Air he then put together the DVD the secret weapons of a modern drummer which he explained the techniques in now dvd and video format. We further have this stuff now explained in done. I've done you know hundreds of different. You know stuff on Youtube and videos that to explain it so I think we have enough of this information that is out there but people have to really realize you gotta go to the sources that really have the validity of the techniques. When I studied with Chapin another figure that one of the first lessons I came in with shaping. He said I'm going to tell you a story that Toby and I want you to tell the story to every student that you show this technique to we didn't touch stick or PAT or anything. I said okay. So he sits me down and he tells me the story. He said when Mullah was young when he was like thirteen fourteen years old. This is now in eighteen eighteen ninety four waiting. You go to take lessons drum lessons in eighteen. Ninety four there are no schools. Yeah he was a witty. Go you go to the old soldiers homes. Where all the retired drummers from the civil war or are there that played all their life playing drums. And you're going to take lessons from them. So that's where Moeller went. He learned from civil war drummers he lived in Albany and Albany is where one of the first soldiers old soldiers homes was built in the capital of New.

"Market basketball game it was because everything's all about television nowadays the game start eight o'clock yeah because you know you have right they have to start sixteen game start eight which means it actually starts about eight fifteen because their first game always runs a little long so we don't get out of the game until after ten and we we take a shuttle from a place and so I I'm I'm on the freeway come going northbound I. forty three going north bound and ten thirty ten forty five and all of a sudden the freeway is down to one lane there's all the signs up saying okay to two left lanes closed and so I admit it starts about Keefe Avenue and it's like two lanes close to your we're we're crawling in a traffic jam at ten forty five or eleven o'clock at night and I I'm just I did I'm I'm kind of tired and little bit cranky and you might find that hard to believe that tired well you know you just you just kind of want to get home and I'm I am driving and so the two left lanes are blocked but there's there's no work going on so you you go to Keith and the lanes are blocked in your capital and and the lanes are blocked and I'm not and that's the if the work going on and I'm like okay we're we're these workers and starting to crumble and my my wife is saying just just relax calm down if this could be a radio story until we get up to over over the bridge between like capital in Hampton there and there's like these three big trucks and I don't see guys but I'm I'm keep trying to keep my eyes the road and my wife says no I wonder what they're doing because they got this big machine out and they've got like this looks well looks like it's a big hole in in the the the road going huh that's nice I got home I checked this out and apparently what happened is they had to do emergency repairs I'd like to the poor rich or something like that emergency repairs I'm thinking okay well never mind I'm not going I guess that's it that's a good enough excuse the close the freeway because apparently from like tenable five in the morning they they had a they had a close neighbors they were they were drilling into something or whatever but I'm thinking okay last thing I want is some like giant single I don't know what it was but something to develop that you know you fall through if you're going over you know that that bridge it's up there and stuff ray so all right so I all my bad thoughts that I did not voice on the radio but I all the bad thoughts in a hostile stuff I felt with the department of transportation what are they doing close in these two lanes of traffic your inconvenience in may I just I I apologize for all those bad thoughts in I am glad that I'm glad things are safe so that's it I've I I I have learned so I'm I'm I'm calmer I better we ended up ultimately getting home of course you know market one last night so that was a that was a good situation all right well the secret is out right they have now disclose it no we we don't know if they're going to change the name of the out of the restaurant you know Fridays from the the dumb name that they came up with to replace Fridays but we do know that is it restaurant could be named later right that they're gonna call it later yeah okay which might be one of the most effective they really stick with that that's one of the most genuinely stupid names for a a restaurant ever I'd convinced that yet you throw in you take a bunch of people you throw in a whole bunch of beer and you let him come up with the name and that's that's what they come up with so later all right yeah it's a it's like a player to be named later so I I I I understand the thought it's just it's dumb I mean it's it's it's it's just it's just flat out dumb no it's not it's not market gold gone now for people who for people might not remember market decided they were going to change their their nickname because you know warriors they decide it was offensive and then there was resistance to golden eagle so they got all these high powered people together including PR folks together and the best they could come up with was Marquette golden out of course lasted well not necessarily that long in a race that boy that was dumb so I don't know if the restaurant later is is as bad as market cold but it's it's it's kind of up there in any event the everybody knows right now that the the naming rights deal that Miller brewing had with the the brewers expires after next year and people might not be familiar with what was going on behind the scenes the truth of the matter is still Miller Miller corners all the different incarnations it's going through and all the different changes and all the different takeovers of going on the truth is Miller did not want to pay the money and what it would cost to renew the naming rights that that's just that's just kind of the reality of this and I understand it's all sorts of people out there who survive I want I wish it was always Miller park it is always going to be Miller park well okay actually what happened is American family I think really bailed out a lot of people because they stepped up in a big way we don't know the terms they're not releasing the terms of the deal but American family agreed to take over aid for similar al Miller didn't want to keep the naming rights they didn't want to spend the money to do it so American family comes in and actually I I know there was all this you know hostility being directed towards American family and American family they're the good guys in this because they came in and again they they took over the naming rights presumably spent a ton of money when otherwise there would be a vacuum on this so the question's been what what were we going to call what is currently Miller park what were we going to call it after next season and it was announced yesterday that the name of the stadium is going to be American family field that will begin well January first of next year so you know people have a little bit of a chance to get used to it so American family field we'll be the name of this nothing more complicated than that and you've got the alliteration American family field you know the the two S. right one six eight five five six one six one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk and text line will you accept the new name or are people going to be referring to the stadium soon to be American family field is it going to be Miller park in the minds of people for decades to come our number eight five five six one six one six twenty it's yet it mortgage talking text line I actually think that the name change is going to be easier and more accepted than a lot of people think I know right now because it's been the only name that the stadium has had since its inception if people can't think of the stadium is being anything other than Miller park I understand there's also always been a a good relationship in a good symmetry between okay Miller brewing the stadium is located kind of by the Miller valley so it it's made sense it was a natural partnership the candidly you know my guess is my guess is within the first year people are going to accept the fact that it's American family field and that's what they're going to be referring to it as that is my sense will you be accepting and more importantly how do you think the public will accept this will will be still talking thirty or forty years from now about how it's Miller park my answer would be no all right eight five five six one six one six twenty that the accurate mortgage talking text line crews lining up the.

"Roasting on an open bar Jack frost nipping that Hey folks here whose axis I'm talking one strand the new book is rien chanting humanity Assyriology of mankind we're talking a little bit about your previous book an awakening the evangelical mind in the history of the evangelical movement in America it's fascinating because when you go back to what field I mean it's it's it's always complicated right I mean the will which field is that of practically a force of nature in the eighteenth century I mean it's just nothing like it but then there's at being in flowing of of how things develop but it seems to me that what you're describing from you know the nineteen twenties and thirties in America is that we're back to their in in many ways that the church is has been marginalized culturally but it is the cultural elites I would argue that are more to blame it's a fashionable for the church to kick itself is a we've done we've done this wrong we screwed up right I mean it's nice to admit that and confessed that they try to get a better but I really do think that the culture a cultural forces have a read against those with a biblical worldview and are really not even playing fair their their their angrily trying to wipe out of the point of view that many of us have they are and you've got a situation now where I think you could say that sexual liberty trumps religious liberty for example one kilo gin has said that recently al Miller and I think he's I think he's right that's really what we're up against were up against a body of thought that is not really even so much collection of ideas as it is secular dogma that we're supposed to believe that we're all a blank slate that nobody can tell us who are who who we are we form our own identity by surfing our feelings and trying to discern what they are and what you end up getting today is you get a situation where people like us who say no god is designed human race there such a thing as godly sexuality yeah marriage is a beautiful thing between one man and one woman for life kids are the blessing of that union these sorts of things we end up being sort of cave man in our sentiments that's very similar to where Christians were seventy years ago which is very ironically and weirdly encouraging I thank and what is its encouraging I think it's encouraging because Billy Graham and others lead a new movement amidst their marginalization they show us that you should very much curse the darkness and light a candle in other words you should recognize that this is an evil age the days are evil as the scripture says and yet there's no summons for us to leave our battle stations we both appreciate Colson very much he was one who would frequently say to evangelicals do your duty state your post as a former marine you know there's something that that I think speaks to us today and that sentiment we need to stay at our posts we need to keep fighting for what's right you speak the truth in love to our fellow man a lot of people don't have the courage to do that knows I've noticed that there are many people who simply want to be like and they're afraid to say anything or maybe they don't know how to say it and so they don't say it but I think when we talk about marriage for example I I really heard Christians say look here's how I see marriage the Bible and Jesus in the Bible talk about it as a wedding between god and his bride so human marriage between a man and a woman is a picture of the wedding between god and his bride the church Jesus the bridegroom is right and it's a beautiful poetic image and on some level it has nothing to do with sexuality it's something way bigger than sexuality and physical complementarity it's it's just something poetic and huge and we never really talked about that we allowed ourselves to get boxed in too much much different kinds of of of conversations but when you say something like that you say look I'm not forcing you to accept my definition but neither in America ought you to be allowed in any way to force me to accept your definition and it is our job as Americans to Duke that out to figure out how do we get along with different views and obviously many people who are pro same sex marriage that you know it's just allowing people to do what they want and it won't affect you and of course the people knew then and now I can see that that that was a lie because it doesn't affect us these things affect everyone especially for your being forced to agree with something even in your actions if you don't do this or don't do this or did you know that the government is now using the force of the state you have forced people to violate the religious liberty and that's a big problem and I I do think we have to fight that we have to fight it in love because we're not trying to keep people from being happy or for living the way they want to live but we have to have the freedom to say publicly and to act publicly on what we know to be true from the Bible yes we do and you know I think we've got to recognize we may just have to square with are being a little bit weird another US younger Christians my age or or maybe even younger what we fear most honestly today I think is almost being weird is almost being outmoded by the culture we've got to recognize look the fact that we say that marriage images the crucifying work of Jesus Christ for the sins of his people is going to sound a little strange to people like it does it's a strange to a lot of us when we first heard it but we've got to stand for things that may sound a little strange we've got a graciously contend for those things and we've got to recognize that as we do weird ideas have a way of actually getting their mind getting their way into people's minds and transforming heart that's you don't have to make it palatable in every case you'll see that's the thing I mean look look at orthodox Jews walking around in New York City they look totally different I mean some of them look dramatically different and they're part of a community you look at me look at Muslims with head scarves and so and so forth there has something has happened to the western church yes where we have we have become so assimilated or selling culturale that we have lost the Tang of other ness yes and that's something that if you lose that you become nothing and nobody that's really what we're facing right now yeah we've got to be willing to stand out a little bit again we've got to be willing to stand up for the gospel of grace and preach the gospel E. young people today might be afraid of for example street preaching or knocking on doors to share the gospel I'm not I'm not here to advocate for that first and foremost my point is simply this whatever you're called to be in whatever you're called to do following Jesus in a Jesus hating world is weird yeah and we've got our own that yeah and we've got a let that re position ourselves and then we've got to know that if we have died to ourselves in Christ we actually don't have to fear this world we died to this world the worst that can happen is that we would lose our lives in this place and go to heaven that is a very freeing reality that can cause us I think to expect great things of god and attempt great things of gods how that's really well put and I also think and it's been part of my project in life is is to lift up heroes who've gone before us because when you do that they inspire you to want to walk like that I mean going off is the ultimate example that you read that book and you say whatever it is that he was doing I want something like that in my life and and even if that means I faced death or danger that's beautiful that's meaningful I want to live that kind of life I want to live a double life Hey you know died a hundred not knowing why existed for a hundred years I mean that's sleek and and sad and it takes no courage to live like he lived and like others that we can talk about have lived there something beautiful and powerful about that I also think we have to remind people that that that there that there are thousands upon Millie millions of people around the world right now suffering for their faith while we debate the finer points of right you know theology there are people being killed marginalize persecuted and slaved for their faith and slaved for their faith and were afraid to say I believe Jesus rose from the dead or I believe these things and wow shame on us we we better you know get a spine yeah when you look at figures like Lutheran Bon Hafer you've written about them when you talk about figures like Jonathan Edwards our call center many others we could named Henry Graham these are people who stood up in a sinful world and dare to name the name of Jesus and actors of Christian faith has a blast radius is if in other words it makes a meaningful difference in our lives I think people around us are desperate to see that we're going to stand for what we believe I think young people in particular have an opportunity to show their peers that they're not jaded and tuned out that they actually have found the one because worth living for I think that's what what we need more of today honestly I season I thinks so very very much and I think somehow we're getting there I keep referring back to Kanye west's recent conversion and his even daring to say that he likes this president and you know I thought wow talk about a bomb yeah I just go boom in the culture I think that their people whose heads are spinning trying to make sense of this that somebody at the top of his game artistically and who has as much cultural power as anybody on the planet married to someone who has equal cultural power yeah that that he would talk like this I think the people thinking what what do we do now like do we just yet or this is he going to just go crazy in a year so we can forget this ever happened is gonna be like Bob Dylan where it's kind of like a two year stick right then he vanishes I mean that to me is it's a very exciting thing in a in a very hopeful thing folks are gonna be right back I'm talking to the talking own strand that spelled S.

"News I'm David green in Culver city California and I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington DC new reporting begins to connect the facts we already knew about president trump's acts relating to Ukraine it is public that the trump administration suspended military aid to Ukraine it is also public the president trump called Ukraine's president president trump admits he asked about his political rival Joe Biden so Ukraine's simultaneously faced both a threat and what can be characterized as a demand for political dirt now the Washington post in other news organizations draw those two elements together the post first reported in others confirmed that the president personally ordered the aid to Ukraine suspended and then days later he made the call even as these details emerge some members of Congress are calling for impeachment proceedings representative Alyssa slot can of Michigan is one of them and she's on the line good morning good morning Steve the headline and I know you don't always write the headline but the headline summarizes your view as these allegations are a threat to all we have sworn to protect is that right. yeah I mean I think all seven of us who were on the op ed are people who are served either in the military or in the intelligence community with all sworn an oath to the constitution many many times over many of us for our entire career and we did it again in January and I think these new allegations if true just were a game changer for us they represented something different and and it just felt like this was the moment that we would come out and speak about that and you know none of us had been preaching impeachment for for months now this was something that we really were judicious about is this a call for impeachment I listen if these allegations are true these are impeachable offenses so we are calling on our Congress and you know the rest of the members here to do everything in our power and that includes expanding the list of things we can do I mean if these allegations are true everything from holding impeachment increase but also you know the power of inherent contempt no no one talks about that but if you get stonewalled over and over and over in violation of the constitutional division of powers we need to have a muscular response to that and we we need to exercise those responsibilities I wanna make sure when you say if these allegations are true what you believe already to have been shown to be true because while some things run known and while some things are based on reporting from unnamed sources within the White House a lot of this is right out in public and acknowledged by the president himself what do you believe happened here for certain well I think for all seven of us the idea that a sitting president would use security assistance from the United States to pressure and potentially extort of the the president of another country into giving him dirt on a political opponent is just beyond the pale and it's one thing for candidate trump to sort of put out a general call to the Russians and others saying Hey if you have anything send it my way it's a very different thing for a sitting president of the United States. to use taxpayer dollars not security assistance is taxpayer dollars to leverage aid you know political investigation by a foreign leader it's just beyond the pale. one of our White House correspondent Tamera Keith has pointed out in looking at you seven that a number of you represent the kinds of districts that gave Democrats control of the house in two thousand eighteen trump issue kind of districts who who voted for Democrats this time is there a political risk in what you're doing. well I think you know some would say yes but it just doesn't matter at this point I think I don't think this is a partisan issue I think that you know you think you think you're actually representing what your constituents want if you went back to your district they would listen to you and say yeah we got a look into this seriously I think if people in my district are divided on this issue I I think I get pulled over in the supermarket by people talking about it and and saying go ahead and do it and I have been pulled over by just as many people saying please don't do it so it's really and sort of mixed issue but I think no matter whether you're a Democrat or an independent or Republican the idea that a sitting president would attempt to leverage dirt on a political opponent from a foreign leader is is just beyond the pale it's a game changer it's something different and we need to acknowledge it as the US and house speaker Nancy Pelosi should allow impeachment proceedings to go forward even if they would be hopeless in the Senate because the Senate have to sign on for the president well I think I think the president has an opportunity here the director of national intelligence is coming up later this week to speak in an open hearing I very much hope he does his job under the law and brings the whistleblower case all the details to Congress I hope the president explains the situation if they cannot or they refused to bring that information to bear I think one possibility is that we need to start impeachment inquiry I I just do I I think the the onus is on them the administration to prove that there wasn't some serious wrongdoing here given that the president's lawyer said it openly you know a minute so the onus is on them otherwise I think we know when we need to move to another tactic Rudy Giuliani has admitted to the pressure campaign which he was involved representative Alyssa slot can of Michigan thanks so much thank you. DNA in code all of our genetic information so you might find it surprising that it is getting easier to make DNA in a lab in fact some companies are cranking out huge amounts of cheap made to order DNA so what are the chances though that it could be misused and here's now greenfield voice takes a look DNA is amazing it's a kind of code made up of molecules known by their first letters ACG and T. strung together these letters can form jeans biological instructions they can get cells to do stuff like make insulin or grow hair Patrick Boyle is showing me around the Boston biotech company called gingko bio work you know I finish my PhD in twenty twelve and over my the course of my tire PhD working a few other people we send the size six jeans but how times have changed today was that the sizing more than ten thousand genes every month the workers here are like computer programmers only the code they write is DNA code their designer DNA gets inserted into cells like bacteria yeast fungi to try to make them spew out chemicals that can be used as new drugs or food ingredients were coming up a thousand new designs on a computer printing out the DNA for them booting up that DNA seeing what it does and then into writing on those designs when he says printing out DNA he means it literally. the technology used for ink jet printing has been adapted to print short fragments of DNA on glass slide those fragments then get assemble into larger and larger pieces in a highly automated process so many of the robot Z. see behind you are basically pipe heading you know liquid around to put different fragments together to build the the correct full design over the last decade the cost of making a pair of DNA letters those AZT in Jeez has dropped from one dollar to less than ten cents we can actually finally afford to write this code then we can write much more of it this company now uses so much DNA it not only makes its own but also buys some from another manufacturer names twist bioscience its CEO is Emily live Proust she says her company's other customers are pharmaceutical firms agricultural companies and academic scientists trying to understand basic biology anyone can just order DNA online so you look on the website you upload the sequence you want and you can order one gene on ten genes or thousands in a couple weeks later your custom DNA arrives in the mail at least it does if your order gets through this company's rigorous security screening because here's the thing DNA is so powerful that it's potentially dangerous someone could use it to transform a harmless bacteria into one that makes the deadly toxin and bits of DNA can be assembled into a virus like Ebola twist director of bio security is James Diggins he says they check out every potential customer and each requested DNA sequence looking to see if there's anything worrisome in there like a gene specific to some nasty germ and then we make a decision about whether. that sequence is appropriate to make for that customer a handful of times they've said no Diggins won't give specifics he does say they would not have made the pieces of DNA that one research team recently ordered from a different company and used to assemble the horse pox virus this was controversial because horse box is so close to the deadly human pathogens smallpox that is not something we would have been comfortable enough introducing this just illustrates a key issue companies have different standards many but not all follow some bio security guidelines put out by the US government that were designed to keep people from doing anything dodgy those guidelines came out about a decade ago and are kind of out of date for example the guidelines call for screening only big chunks of DNA digan says it's gotten so easy to put little pieces together they really need to be screened as well as we think that's that's sort of an easy next step that the the US government could take there's also new desktop DNA synthesizers rather than ordering from a company scientists can now buy one of these machines to create desired bits of DNA in their own lab that machine needs to be able to screen and ensure that the that manufacturers safely and legally just like photo copier machines have built in controls to stop people from counterfeiting money Gigi grown fall as a bio security expert at the center for health security at Johns Hopkins University she agrees that the government should strengthen its guidelines and thinks all researchers to receive federal funding should be required to order their synthetic DNA from companies that follow them the idea there is to level the playing field so to make the business case that screening is not a burden for the companies it becomes an advantage still she says these measures are only a partial solution it's going to be something that should be done said to her some people who. miss uses technologies is not going to get everybody just because the technology is advancing rapidly and is available around the world a spokesperson for the department of health and Human Services said that officials are in the process of reviewing and updating the guidelines for synthetic DNA manufacturers but then it was too early to discuss what changes might be made now greenfield voice NPR news. this is NPR news it's for nineteen

and this sort of thing that you do at the start of a campaign going around to the sort of reliable sources of money to get going and he's doing that but but isn't the only candidate hitting up Democrats in Hollywood for cash some his rivals have been cleaning up as well Elizabeth Warren Kamel Heris people to judge right yeah actually I mean to me I think the breakout story here his people to judge I think he has made a lot of and roads and depend on how much better job than people expected that he would being a sort of a relatively unknown candidates from a small midwestern city obviously there's a sort of served a donor base in LA and Hollywood that is just really excited about his candidacy so the first legitimate a candidate for president but it also serves parts of it beyond that so he's done very well come on here is not easy also is is a top tier contender being a California senator office to give her a leg up on some other folks are we seeing a kind of generational split among Hollywood donors or is it more of an ideological one I mean I think there is some generational split certainly in the younger demographic there's a lot of excitement for duty church Biden is twice his age so there's a there's a certain obvious contrast there by there's a lot of older folks as well who were excited by him and I don't see a real ideological split between them it does feel like both of them are sort of very palatable and acceptable to the entertainment community and the business community more broadly how about Bernie Sanders he got a lot of love from Hollywood last time around in twenty sixteen how is he doing this time he doesn't really do the Hollywood fundraiser saying it and neither does it was warm and there hasn't been a whole lot of contributions from the entertainment world so far Adam McKay was a big name that I notice is a producer and director of vice he and his wife both America to Bernie Sanders I mean pretty Sanders really is our different breed on on the server saying any times for a raise you know most of those money from small dollar contributors and you know he famously went around and twenty sixteen talking about how his average contribution was twenty seven dollars and so now people just give twenty seven dollars we get two dollars and thirty cents a serving and now it's become a real point of pride for a lot of the other candidates as well right because I mean Elizabeth Warren has not been holding big fund raising events she's been focusing on online contributions but that is not stopping big Hollywood heavy hitters from donating to her campaign she is also done very well considering that she hasn't done this or traditional fundraising circuit she's got a number for Hollywood folks on her foster but she has made a point of saying I'm going to spend my time out there talking to people and not doing these fundraisers and I think that's a more valuable use of my time do you see any Hollywood Democrats hedging their bets and backing multiple candidates yeah absolutely so obviously the big field twenty something candidates Jeffrey Katzenberg concert distinguished himself in this regard he and his wife giving to fourteen different candidates wow basically everyone except Bernie Sanders he's given money to al Miller number people who they are traditional dollars they've given to you know Obama that given the Clinton they've given to John Kerry they give to Al Gore you know so they are close it to us and you know they kinda want to hear from everyone and they kind of want to be on the winning team whatever that turns out to be a when it comes to issues what are the burning topics in Hollywood this presidential campaign season it's not anything specific to the industry exactly it's it's much more just let's get rid of comp that's what I hear it's just you know just the sort of cry of outrage and pain every day with the president and who who is it that it was going to be able to pay them you know there are there are specific industry issues as well you know trade in China and an intellectual property protection and stuff like that but honestly that feels very secondary at this point I think there's a a focus on electability that is very pragmatic and that maybe is more pronounced in Hollywood and on other places a sort of sense of like somebody like bite and strikes them as very safe and very electable compared to somebody like Bernie Sanders for instance which may explain why he died and got twenty million dollars and Bernie Sanders you know this isn't really fundraising and Nollywood at all gene manis is a reporter with variety and you are listening to morning edition here on KCRW.

Or, you know, had you seen it on television. Like, I'm just curious like even how you and soccer got into the same room, even before all of this stuff. I get answer that question is always in Toronto, in course, league meeting and smarter coping, and he said, I don't know when you're coming home that come home. My is a indoor soccer game play in that group. And I went to see what it's like on astroturf and nothing to do with the game. I always come back. You see because it was played on apply would pour. So anyway, when I saw they asked because it was great. But I'd like the game. I watch the game. Because you could see the ball with something just with the game. But this all started though, so but you mentioned the cross right? So you were you were actually an owner or a a major presence in. What was then the national lacrosse league in nineteen seventy four and Philadelphia is that why you were in Toronto. Yes. I owned Philadelphia wings. I knew that. I don't enjoy soccer better potential. And then they cross, you know, for their fans for seeing the ball when the modem is in the game and someone so that sorta got me started. And I ended on someone the wings. I ended up working when they atoms for Houston, which was a joke before we before we get to that. So so maybe maybe backed up for second.

Mission background and. He said, you know. That you're are at KOMO guys who are promoting a league for the cross. He should we interested. I said Jan, you know, talk to him a not sound like God started. So I learnt from Chris to soccer and your interest in in going and seeing that that spectrum game right was because of the turf, right because you were more you're more interested in in sort of seeing how maybe astroturf could be a better playing surface than say what I guess you said plywood or maybe even worse for the lacrosse players, right? We just if apply with over the is and penny green, and, you know, going back forty years, and you know, astroturf she was new especially into us, you know, after Tertia with ways not used indoors that's on to divorce. It's you know since different. All right. We'll let let's talk about sort of this this game. So you're saying that Ed Snider who was the owner at longtime of the Philadelphia Flyers obviously legendary NHL franchise. He was kind of the guy who tipped you off to this. What I guess indoor soccer exhibition. What what how was it described to you? And and how did you sort of make haste to get there to sort of see this at his recommendation? Well, first of all invited me for. Ruling. And we we go, and we watched his game indoor soccer there were thirteen thousand two hundred people right in the stands for this game for game is never been played. But that wasn't my perfect. My perfect list to see if I can apply the after two to two across and this game. We're talking about this on. Jin excuse me, February eleventh nineteen seventy four and we're this is the spectrum and this is between the then champion, right? The nineteen Seventy-three outdoor champion NSL Philadelphia atoms coach by Al Miller and a team known as what the Red Army team, maybe you can give so how much did you know about this game going into it? And at what point was it during the game or or shortly thereafter, where your original intention of going into that game. I e turf and lacrosse kind of changed into wait a minute. Maybe there's something to the soccer thing. Instead, that's exactly what it was. And you know, it's it was after I want downstairs at the spectrum, and I spoke to somebody out of players, and they had no idea. I didn't play indoor soccer. And they were pointing the Russian team. But you know, everything in life one thing that's doing northern shit is today. The. Attend. So you me how many millions of kids are playing soccer. And 'cause when committed that's the big thing. You know, I'm another working on me, you know, in the franchise which is great to catch your plane to all plane and they play outdoor.
