Satire in Strange Times Week
"This week's theme is satire. In strange times. The curator is Becka James. Here's why Becca chose the sleep. She says hello is Becka. James and the theme I chose is Satire Strange Times. I chose this theme because we're living in an exceptionally strange time and satire has the power to help process. What's happening and improve humanity by criticizing. Its Bali's and foibles. It will also allow us a hearty and necessary laugh. Here are the podcasts and episodes chosen by Becca along with short descriptions of each one first up is OPR's very fatal murder podcast. The episode chosen is the first ever of their first season in case you don't follow. Pr closely that acronym stands for onion public radio. It's from the onion. Expect very ridiculous levels of satire. Podcast made me laugh out loud. It is perfect the now times that we are in the next episode comes from a podcast called a woman smile and it's called a woman smile. Stylish it's thirty minutes long. Here's the description of the show. Women's smile is a podcast. Where Pattie Harrison and Laura Ramirez talk about well but especially the gentle and kind nature of a woman smile satire. Women are not gentle or kind. The next episode comes from a radio. Play called Lindsey. And it's called one God damn name. It's a fictional retelling of the story of the making of the parent trap and it is perfect. This first episode is mysterious and serious and will make you feel weird in a good way.

"What about sorry guys peeing bike? It's not so easy for Women To pee. So is that ever an issue? Believe it or not you're listening to ear hustle from PR XS Radio Tovia. I'm Alan Woods. My co-host just asked a very unusual. I did an important question if your lady truck driver. I'm not a lady truck driver Nigel. Poor and we're doing something very different sedan your hustle. This is not a regular ear hustle episode season five begins on March fourth but in season four we interviewed a woman by the name of Erica. Solano she had done time in prison and we talked to her about a romantic life post prison and also the dating advice. You have people just getting out of prison. We heard her in episode called. I won't the fairytale and since getting out of prison. Erica has become a commercial truck driver and I don't know why but at the end of the interview I was just curious about you know peeing. I mean mail truck. Drivers can just an empty bottle but it's not so easy for US chicks. I don't have a problem. I have a strong bladder and I drink tomato juice so I do have to use the bathroom a lot but I just stop and I use the bathroom wherever I stop but For guys it's Gross. 'cause they don't have strong bladders and they just pee wherever they wanna be but for women There's there's contraptions to use. That's always wondering what are they. Have you ever seen them? No Russia okay but I was at a anyhow. We got to talking to Erica about trucking and it turns out that it's not uncommon for incarcerated people men and women to get into trucking when they get out new guys inside who spent a lot of time reading books trucking. They were getting ready for those tests when he got out. And since I've gotten out I've met a couple of truckers on parole. I mean after being contained in that one little itty bitty area for year. You just want to get out there. Get on those streets and hit the road. I mean even me. I love you loving. If I have to go somewhere calm I know appear prison both shackled in looking at another cars and seeing people free. You just want to be on a row.

"alan woods" Discussed on The Bitcoin Podcast
"Yeah I can't say that the ecosystem is as young as naive as it was when I first joined but I also can't say that it's anywhere close to like an actual competitive cutthroat warlike environment like any other industry as Most code is still being shared freely really And the projects that don't share that code freely are like Asterix's at the bottom of an article geico right like they're basically going to be left behind just because of how fast things are changing. And if you have a limited narrow narrow minded Mike Set of contributors working on something in a closed environment. There's no way you could keep up with the changes changes that are going on around here or even the people that you know other you can look at their code. But it's patented so if you look at their code then you're basically basically opening yourself up to lawsuit risk H bar. Whatever that's called Hendra Hash graph eighteen names there now? Code Asterisk Code is I think the code is open. Yeah the codes open. Just don't then you're opening yourself getting suit right like I. I mean it is absolutely insane like why would you ever look at their code. I mean it's like you like if you're successful the and then they'll sue you eventually like. It's almost almost like A. It's like a patent you know I mean. Pat Is always start off to defensive. Yeah Yeah Yeah but they always start out defensive and then when they think they can you know like when they get sold to the next big company Like because there was the you know the company failed like and then they get purchased by patent all and then they get the big companies get sued you know. Mrs Like the a satellite cycle of like what happens in with IB. Unfortunately I mean the whole system is like a scam. Let's be honest with you but Yeah I don't know I mean sorry I got off on a ran on on that but it's So in the context of the League Alan Woods article. It's essentially that He predicts that people start using Or abusing abusing other platforms as a way to get one up on their competitors and that the current level will of openness and sharing within blockchain projects is doomed in the near to long-term Because essentially people aren't behaving as if they are competitors he might have been talking About himself as if like he wasn't treating it theory as a proper competitor If theorem did start treating them as the proper competitor at a certain point after being called out by several individuals on twitter as like trying to poach talent to a new vision new product and basically pointing out the fact that they're developing their own implementation rather than like building off the two. I kind of have a controversial opinion on this and my opinion is that having a completely legally independent and opinionated implementation of a way to scale blockchain technology. I'm glad lab. They have the funding to try it. I'm glad they have the independence to pursue it and it's interesting that they have like a solid cohesive vision that is. Let's be honest not exactly up for debate As to how they will accomplish this. It's definitely interesting like coming from an engineering perspective. I'm glad they're trying to solve some problems that that I don't see an immediate solution to and basically. That was a nice way to say that I talked to a lot of people that don't think we'll ever work in the Ultima Vision But you know we'll say right but that's a hard problem to actually actually like have like legitimately different chains in like any meaningful consensus is like. Yeah Plus The plus the differences of having ving different consensus mechanisms that coalesce into a central consensus mechanism and that the main chain is actually like the root route authority And any other chain can be Essentially like encoded as a light client and as a two the main chain fascinating the implementation details and the complexity to it are yet unsolved. But like it's Kinda cool that they get to do their own thing you know like maybe there. There will be things that they do really well. Maybe there'll be things. That theory too does better than the original negative assumptions of some of their team members from like four years ago. Oh and it's like one of the things is like were building difficult. Unproven untested assumptions and we essentially have to predict what technology technological advances or going to exist. Like nick two years from now. In order to appropriately be able to accomplish some of the development goals for some of these projects polkadot and eath eighth to both have massive research hurdles That are still unsolved. And it's Kinda cool and it's kind of important that we have projects that are legitimately trying to like solve these problems right. And I can contrast honest to other projects that have a that basically under sell or try to like ignore nor some of the risks inherent to their scaling solutions as opposed to trying inventing something new and like instead I dunno they implement a What's it called? They implemented classical consensus mechanism without civil resistance but but they have some kind of like voting mechanism for example. Okay cool. That's it's not fundamentally interesting. And it has is like structural weaknesses to it that anyone who's tried to build this type of thing can spot instead they just try to cover over for it with like marketing and patents and whatever they can to essentially obfuscate the fact that they're fundamentally not solving a problem and they're just making compromises. That should be unacceptable. But Yeah I think I. I think it's a legitimate attempt and I think it's important that we have other like completely independent Projects Objects implementations. But I hope he's wrong. Not Not in like his idea and vision of what he wants to build the software that I honestly like wholeheartedly hope that he succeeds because having wars I asked yes in the in the actual attitude and approach of these teams and the idea that collaboration can't exist in the idea that because we're all competing businesses. We can't treat this like an academic exercise and share the coolest innovations vacations amongst each other. which was one of the key talking points that he mentioned he said that? Mature companies don't share openly all all of their cool stuff basically saying that like facebook doesn't reveal like the major competitive advantages advantages with their graph database system. Right like they don't open source all of their early graph Q.. L. Work things like that. IOP's drawn as as someone who who has experienced this ecosystem system when People actually do want to accomplish something different. And they don't want to establish a traditional monopolistic stake business venture that just makes enough revenue to be able to create a walled garden and kind of create at a mini monopoly within a new industry I hope he's wrong about that. Part of the Vision for sure as one of his called it real politique of business. It's like rail. Politique was an excuse back in the sixties for us to get involved in Vietnam right. It's in retrospect and in history. Rail politique wasn't that real and it wasn't that useful not at the time and definitely not historically but that's like a different aspect and the idea being like is the rest of the boxing industry forced to just kind of like fight it out like Lord of the flies basically trying to one of each other because there is no cleberation between projects or teams anymore. I don't know yeah and I mean it's interesting because like Gavin Evan. From the Mon of Polkadot his pitch was always like you can go back. And Look it's like and we are declaiming like the end of maximalism. We are the Anti Maxima must and yet like this you know. The article basically sounded like undeclared like the most maximalist philosophy. I can think of you know which you know. I don't know we'll we'll say like you know as you were saying like. How are they pitching themselves? I think every at like in some sense everybody's a competitor to everybody in the space right like I don't like I feel like people that really think that the like like we're all like quote unquote center studying to be a lot of libraries get shared whatnot and so there is a fair amount of collaboration Like you know we'll see who wins and What personally I think? The inertia of the therapy is going to be very difficult to to match We'll see like a lot of projects. I mean cosmos was a big. It was a good good example of like somebody that started off. Trying to be super friendly super cozy up with a theorem. They even announced two years ago. You know now we are going to hard spoon to a theorem and you know like this big marketing to a fan developers and they they pitch that for a while and by the way you know. When the last time I heard somebody mention Cosmos hard spoon to a theorem holders? It was at least eighteen months ago like they haven't done it. I mean day of like become like that. I mean it's been like a ramping up. As they thought they were getting closer they have become more hostile and Morar are you know tribal listrik of their own and like you know. It's it is what it is right. I mean like Bitcoin is I had if they're am because they fear Theorem is like the main competitor to them and everybody else below ethereal also attacks theorem. Because they think that's their best chance of success so it's this weird You know like Theorem has always been attacked from all sides and You know despite spite that like it keeps growing developers. Keep not really seeing fiber alternatives. Frankly like without sacrificing major components through it It's it's also the facts that back in the day the I don't know if it was. It was Negotia Bitcoin Dot Org but anyways is one of the BITCOIN. Base newsletters was a productive and constructive Forum for debate in terms of the technology the trade offs and people honestly debated What the advantages and disadvantages are of implementing certain technologies and because of the large developer base? At a theory research has also become and I've always kind of admire the fact that they were opened to sometimes admit that another project has done something better than they did and also oh like extent olive branch to other groups of people that they respect like this Zeke Ashe Foundation Zuko and Ian Myers and the researchers that are involved there as well People have faulted ethereal for being too inclusive to open win like main stage DEFCON had random. I wouldn't call them competing. 'cause they're not on the same level projects like the the straight up like. There's no way you could say openly bras. It's on the same level. I don't even know like they have developers I but They essentially are competing ideologies and they are different visions different implementations but at at the same time like if they build something cool. Let's be honest there. Developers are going to look at it. They're going to review it but if nothing else like we should at least keep the openness the intellectual honesty to be able to admit when another project it has done something really cool and see if it is something that is worth implementing or taking into account or it's like building and the amount of people working on this Applications and like various layers and different different parts of it theorem. It's highly unlikely that there would be something successfully implemented That theory can't a similar late or used to improve their own protocol unless of course as in the case of Polkadot it is like a fundamentally mentally like top to bottom redesign re imagination and man. I hope they're code. Works like I hope It does what it needs to buy. I I also don't don't want blockchain to essentially become dominated by like the likes of facebook Apple Amazon. You know I don't want a a mono monopolistic organization growing out and I would rather it be an open source community that somehow figures out proper economic incentives for the people doing the work and in which the correct ideas of how to better and improve this ecosystem and the core clients to be honest. Because that's probably the hardest thing to actually fund And and they get rewarded properly in proportions. They're working their contribution their effort. And it's tough like if you're in back in the day there were like okay. Well we don't have to make colored coins on Bitcoin. We can have an entire platform and then no one's going to have to create another network for ICO's because they could build applications right on top up of this generalize -Able Smart Contracting Platform ended up and people instead used theorem smart contract platform to raise money and then they realized that there is no other way to develop a top twenty coin if they didn't have their own the protocol so.

It was at the top of the I tunes podcast charts and to date. Episodes have been downloaded more than six million times times their voices now stretching far beyond this prisons barbed wire covered walls and so a friend of airlines volunteer. The prison had an idea with the spotlight light on his work and having served now two decades of his thirty one to life sentence earl launch should put in for a commutation can official appeal to the governor to set him free. Just like putting a commutation. You know 'cause you doing all the good work you know you're you're you're you're rehabilitative work and you know you. Also you know basically teaching the world with a podcast in you know giving him to individuals in Cypher Information. And so you know you think of people get commuted. His people won't Devereaux. You not even really trip like that so I feel. I got the paperwork I went through it. Filled it out to the best of my ability and I actually got an interview with the It was like a parole agent three. They interviewed me and for my processing eligible to be eligible for commutation. Have your sentence commuted into be released from prison exactly exactly so. My process took loan because it took about a year because I had to go through The California Supreme Court and they'd have to agree with it so I went through through this whole process and a year ago The day before Thanksgiving I got the call from governor. Brown's office described that phone call. What what what would commend where you were so nobody really? Is this place in prison. Called the captain port. This is where all the administration people be. So you don't go. What is play you? Don't go in there and not unless you prisoner worker. You work in there So when they called me to the captain's porch how they do a guard incomes. So so what happened. Was You know in the media center is a phone and the media center in. Somebody's like a man. They got a phone call you and I got there and they were like The governor's office is on the phone and the ladies. In the governor's office. They broke the news down to me saying that. The governor owner is commuting. Your sentence To Be Released immediately on parole and I was listening to smile and say do immediate mean like right now I can go. Oh and he was like no no no. We got a process the paperwork but within the next five business days you go and I was like okay and this was the day. Hey before Thanksgiving meaning the next four days is not business days. I'm like It it's very appropriate time in one way because like thankful for right but on the other hand you gotTa hold this information for like nine days but it was the most beautiful feelings I was able to call my mom's and you know she was very elated. That like I'm the have a man home. You know my brother we've we've we pretty much been incarcerated you know a lot in our lives or long periods of time so It was a good thing you know and it was. It was like it was almost like the whole prison system up until that point was was like on my back like just whammy down like just with a life sentence. You don't know you. You just stuck. He just incapacitated basically and when they said that it just lifted up off me you know and it was. I started to to float. It wasn't even like walking no more. It was like just it's just it was it was unreal. It was the governor actually commuted. The sentence out of I don't know how many people in this prison system and and and and I really. I don't take it for granted at all because I it was another guy in a car with us. That's still in prison to twenty twenty-eight right you know Oh that was one of my co defendant. So I look at him like I know you know that could be me. I could still be in there. You know so November thirtieth two thousand eighteen Orlan Woods was released from prison on parole. There was an official letter from California's then governor Jerry Brown announcing his commutation governor. The Brown writes. Mr Woods has clearly shown that he has no longer than he was when he committed this crime and as evidence that the governor goes on to say quote he has set a positive example for his peers and through his podcast has shared meaningful stories from those inside prison. For All of these reasons I believe that Mr Woods is ready. Eight to be released on parole when you look back on your whole experience like how do you. What destroyed you? Tell yourself about that. Of course I have to look back I have to blame myself for Getting out there you know getting into The criminal activities But I think it was just me Doing what was being done in my neighborhood and not having the discipline to not go into that into that trade or not. Go that route but it was. It was it was heavily accessible. I mean I mean everything from drugs. weapons everything was accessible in the neighborhood. You know a lot of my friends. I ran into in prison. You know right it was like it wasn't a bad thing growing up like it was more like asks. What's up man you know got you know straight up art?

And let's do it without going into debt as quickly as we can because I don't businesses all the time. And I still don't get it right. And it doesn't matter how good you get your still gonna fail is still going to go wrong, do it quickly cheaply. The are both big fans of of saying failures good thing. It's not a bad. They celebrate we absolutely celebrate failures. That's right. That's right. Okay, allen. This has been absolutely fantastic. And if it's okay with you. I'd love to jump into the segment of our show that we call four more. And this is where we ask you for questions. And then we end by letting you tell us more about how our listeners can find out more about you, and more about what you, do you ready for that. I'm ready. I'm gonna take the first one hundred okay in these rapid fire style. So don't over think, to sell the first thing that comes to your mind. Okay, allen. I one what was your first or your worst job in what lessons did you learn from it? I think my Strobe was. You are used to get strimmer, which is a machine cuts edges across and countless states. And the worst part about that job was you would occasionally catch doc poop. Make it up in face and up your nose does the most disgusting job. I've ever had. What did I learn from it? Don't do that. That's a, that's a good learning. Very good learning. Okay. I'll take the second question. So Alan woods in opportunity, that you said, no to either in your personal life where your professional life and looking back was the right decision. So I think I said, no to a whole load of opportunities back in twenty fourteen after I got married, my wife and I decided to take a mini retirement where we had six months off for honeymoon winning traveling, and that six months off Honey room, when I go back I had an Email from British Airways asking for training Kohl's, but it was too late. The opportunity was gone. And I said, no to a whole host of opportunities. But I had life experiences. And I went out and had an incredible time. And I wouldn't change it for anything. So I think that does come a stage when experiences opportunities being with your family is more important than cash. Love it. Awesome. Okay. So you've given us a couple bits of that. But I love to hear your very worst advice that you've ever been given the very very worst advice. You've been given. And what did you do with it? The very worst advice on being given.

That I've ever read on social media regarding the masters, but I think he got what he wanted in attention. So in that way, I would say Bravo Meraz, I will punch holes into every single thing that he had to say coming up a little bit later on in the show. He has no clue and that's not the first time. I've said that about Meraz he's got buddies a real good, dude. But I will totally make him look like a fool a little bit later on in the show. So don't miss it. The NBA playoffs begin yesterday. And teams battle and they go all year long. Setting themselves up to be able to say, hey, we got home court advantage. What you need homecourt advantage. Homecourt advantage is important. Well, what we learn yesterday three out of the four road teams one. So after you battle through an eighty two game regular season, which is incessant and many times horribly boring. Just to let in teams that are forty two and forty into the postseason. The nets in the magic to teams that are forty two and forty after the regular season managed to beat the fifty eight win raptors and the fifty one win. Sixers stop me. If you've heard it before that the Toronto Raptors came up really small in a big game situation. It's their DNA. That's what they've done. The Sixers another story. And to me, it's something where I would say the Sixers. They talk about the process. And remember, this is an organization that felt the only way they could get better. The only way they were going to do it. Was to be a total. Dumpster fire purposefully set. For season's upon seasons. And then given the opportunity to take advantage of top draft picks. They didn't even necessarily draft that well half the time. And now, then they go, oh, we got to make some moves here to bring in a guy like Jimmy Butler because we're feeling the pressure. The process was supposed to build a championship club. What the process did was they gave the keys to Brett Brown. And Brett Brown was the perfect coach in Philadelphia for a team that had zero expectations. When when they were a team that was expected to lose fifty five and sixty games a year Brett Brown could cozy up to the Philly media. Be affable be nice be kind be friendly. And what he did. Is he cultivated a culture there whereby the median Philly for the most part has become Brett Brown lapdogs? And this is my hometown. And some of the people doing it are people that I greatly respect. And they have become pussycats. Sitting in Brett Brown's lap where they fall all over themselves to make excuses for Brett Brown because Brown's a nice guy and Brett Brown addresses them by name and and squeezes their shoulder sometimes and gives them an atom, maybe a fist pump. When I left Philly in the nineties, it was it was the toughest like roughest media in the country. And I loved it. I grew up on it. And I aspire to be part of it. What do we have? Now, it's lapdog central for many, many of the media members in the big tough media town of Philly with Brett Brown and for Ben Simmons who complained yesterday after the Sixers got embarrassed. I mean, they got pants. The nets won eleven one to win doesn't in any way dictate. What that game was about by the end of the first quarter. It was absolutely clear that the nets were the better team yesterday. Doesn't mean they're going to win the series doesn't mean. But yesterday, they were the better team. And then Simmons doesn't like getting booed. And he says if you're a Sixers fan, and you're doing will then to stay on that side. Hey, Ben, grow up. I know you'd like to rather be keeping up with the Kardashians. And I know that big games or something that you don't have a history of playing. You don't have any history of having games where there's ever been pressure on you. None. Postseasons pressure. For the raptors postseasons pressure. They tend to wilt under it will it be different this time around. I still think they win the series eventually, but yes, they're hoping to change their DNA out. And what does? Gregg Popovich in the San Antonio Spurs. Do they just go out and take care of a fifty four win nuggets team at beat them on their home court and steal homecourt advantage for their series? Again. I'm not sure they win the series but three out of four road teams winning inexcusable for the home team's inexcusable to come out somewhat fat flat. Inexcusable to be swallowed up by the moment. To pull a Ben Simmons is I will now call it. He don't want to give booed. You. Don't wanna get booed. Don't suck at home. How about it? And what are the warriors do ho- home go out and just plug in the clippers on national TV? It's going to be a fantastic day at the masters.

"Anyway for Allen. I was impressed. They were way behind so it's a little bit too much like a preseason game. Just like last week was. But you know, he does not have a lot of good players around him. I think and I thought he did all right next week at Minnesota. We'll talk then we'll talk for a while now. And then again, then I, you know, there there is gonna probably be for a lot of people me included the go week to week struggle with how to because you just said you just set for a preseason game. If you're not investing in what the results are going to be alternately. If the if the object of your season is how does the quarterback look does he show some promise? Is there something to work with is there once they get to work this off season. I know they're still fourteen of these games. What do I have something to build around here in him? The struggle is in sort of staying on there because this team is maybe in a crisis on defense. The head coach took over the play calling volunteer. Davis quitted halftime. And they got rolled over in the first half of this came like an alien if he's going to have a chance in a game. Like today, I need my defense to make some stops in the first part of this game. Sure it helps that the offense can carry some weight too. But you know, we're expecting that to be a work in progress. And they invested a lot of money this off season on that defense the invested draft picks and the defense, and I mean, they just they had no answers in that first half of that game. So like, I'm I want to be all about alien. And that's what matters the most. But man for for a while watching this game, it was really really tough to stomach. I mean, they they got run over Melvin Gordon walked in twice. Yeah. I'm distance. So I wanna I wanna least. We say that a few times here on this show because I don't know how fans are feeling leaving. If you're focusing on Allen, maybe you feel right? But I don't know the stadium was half full or or less for the second half. A lot of the second avenue by the time. He threw the touchdown pass. Nobody been thirty thousand people in here. So like, I don't know how good people feel about his performance. This game was over at halftime. Let's go to Mike here. Hi, mike. First of all love your show. I had a couple of thoughts on the game. Just got a tweet that day that three close the second. Secondhand. I think that's ridiculous. But I want to go to my original point. Josh shallan three snap is he doing enough to read the defense and he holds. I mean, what did you guys? See me throw me a lifeline here. I thought he did. Well, like we've been saying since we got on the air pretty much. I thought he did. Well, what his reads were is not something I could tell you. But it looked competent which is a which is better. That's progress from last week. Thank you, Mike. Here's Earl next alot. Warsaw. Good. You're on the air. Go ahead, please. Okay. Thanks. I I thought I again, I I'm with you. I thought Alan woods was impressive. I I started. I what concerns me though, is I see chains giving us absolutely nothing right now. Whether he's not finding a whole or he is to get no yard when he does getting bounce it outside. But my question to you guys. I guess on another line this year with McDermott taking over the calls in the second half. Leslie Frazier job in jeopardy. I'll hang up and listen. How would I know we know? Well, we'll see what depths they feel. They are at on that side of the ball. I mean, I just I just said a few minutes ago. They might be in crisis on that side of the ball. They got a cornerback. They were counting on to be a credible starter who bailed on them at halftime and the head coach took the play calling from the defensive coordinator, very experienced vested veteran coach in this league. It's interesting. I don't care at all who calls the place on defense. Somebody's going to. They're both qualified. Sure, maybe they're in certain ways, a really smart experienced fan will be able to pick up. I couldn't do that for you right now watching the game from the press box like other after that like I don't care who calls the plan. I don't know why it matters. I mean, it's interesting. When you're getting crushed like that. I like to think that the coach is going to try something like that. I like, the if you will the courage to do that that's interesting, but you know, really? That's that's probably the most. I have to say about it. Yeah. Let's go to Luke next, Luke. Hey, how's it going? Call Mike Natick. You made a comment. You said that anybody dot. That game. And that was his first time as a pretty mediocre performance, in my opinion. I wanna talk about an by me or by Josh Allen. No by Josh Allen. Okay. Good. I think he was more impressive in the preseason. I think he showed more in the preseason to be honest. Well, the preseason easier. That's true. That's true on offense. Kelvin Benjamin very only has two real catches this year. I don't understand why we're not targeting get more guy towers over secondary's. We put the ball in a place where you can get it even if you've got to tell them where to line up. I mean, I think you can go out and make plays defense are tackling. I think we look soft. I work. We're hugging guys or grabbing. But we're not you want. We don't have that cutthroat mentality that I think we need. I think we all want to win. But we got a really really wanted to win this process is I don't know, man. I'm starting to feel like I usually do that. Here we go feeling week four five, but I'm feeling it a week to I don't know about you guys feel better than I did a week ago. And we probably all should. I don't like settling for this kind of commentary. But there was a lot seemingly a lot more energy. And maybe belief on the field in the second half the pressure. Maybe was off the game was as you put it over already in pretty much. But I'd like to think that. This is also really not my style. But I'm thinking it. So here you go if this team overall can get a sense from Josh Allen that he might not be terrible that maybe they have someone good here. Then I want to think that that boosts the overall some belief in that Kelvin Benjamin seems kinda grouchy, and I don't know, I don't know him personally. I don't know how into the she is. But if if he or anybody comes to the belief that this quarterback can do well for them. Well, then maybe they have more to give that can be during the week that can be beating guy on the field on Sunday in a game. Whatever that is. I I don't think Kelvin Benjamin necessarily deserves more balls more targets, but you know, maybe there's a level higher level out there here for the for these guys on both sides of the ball. I mean, really what what they were last week was was pitiful. And. And if I were on the team, I don't we hate this from players and players are very careful not to admit it. If I was on the team, I would have been completely demoralized, especially if I was on defense. I would have spent well doesn't matter. They were about to would have been completely demoralized about this. Yeah. What kind of year is going to be? What are we doing here? And so today, I don't know. I feel better. I definitely feel better. This did not end up at a doomsday scenario where Allen is overwhelmed, and we're just left here with just wreckage. And what do you do? Now. He's not ready the he he looked ready enough. So that's the good news. They've given up seventy eight points in two weeks. I mean, it's lopsided by the forty seventy thirty one today. Defense is right now just brutal who gave up points today. Pittsburgh. Forty two thirty seven Kansas City wins in Pittsburgh, Patrick Mahomes. So Philip rivers had three touchdown passes and four incompletions Mahomes had five incompletions and six touchdown passes. Twenty-three for twenty eight three twenty six and six at the Steelers. Okay. Okay. We update you all on the construction of Patrick Mahomes. Fear bunker. Won't do wallpaper going up, right? I mean, we're we're deciding what? How how how plus we want to make it? We are. I am. I may be spending. A lotta time in there. Allen was encouraging today somewhat. Six the NFL record is seven. Patrick, Mahomes and his second. Okay. Me third start of his career second this year. Six touchdowns pretty impressive. That's impressive at the steel. That's good. That's good. See now if I watched that game with you. And then say is it interesting to you that I thought behold, you'd better say, no. You'd better say, no. Larry is with us alot. Larry. Hey, guys. I was waiting for the fear bunker on Mahomes, come out, I figured I'd have to wait for Jeremy. But I'm I'm glad you probably set it. Oh, man. I'm I'm all in. Everybody's got these bunkers. Yeah. What did that start when the bills passed on Patrick Mahomes? Okay. Yeah. They did it with watching a couple of years. It's just kind of funny. But anyway, I was nervous because the guy was playing against today had Gordon, but I had homes and Kelsey. So I'm doing okay right now. Good for you and Rothenberger, but I- benched Rawson burger from homes. Roth was spluttered. I was I'm with you, Mike, I'm hopeful I'm hopeful with this kid. I mean, obviously the negatives were the first half defense. It was putrid as as our offense line and God Minnesota might set a record for Saxon game next week if we don't do something differently. But man, that's third quarter defense and the way that he stood in the pocket and delivered that far. It's the first time. I've seen a quarterback do that really since probably Kelly do it with some type of confidence now. Yes, he held the ball along. And there was plays out there that he did make which I'm sure the coaching staff will sit in the film room and that, but I'm hopeful I really am especially with that second half performance. Okay. Thank you. Larry. Here is Joan AC with us alot. Hey, guys. Thanks for taking my call. Do. I have the name, right? Yeah. That's Jonet from above guy. Yeah. You gotta play thanks for taking my fault. And just a couple of months number one. I'm leaving the game and I'm sober. But I feel like maybe you got a little bit of operation as town because I don't feel like cash Allen is this good. Good. Holding onto the ball. The second too long. I don't feel like you. Are you guys having to watch however, raise? Okay. Yeah. Yeah, I'm hammered. I also think get someone disagrees with me that there probably drunk. I get rip roaring loaded. Every one of these games. I've been doing this for twenty two years. I mean, how do you think? Get throwing. Yeah. I'm drunk. How this goes? Name is that. Aiden below. Hello. I'll talk about like how early are defensive especially in the first half. Why why? Why would you like to talk about this? What about the what about the idea of talking about this appeals to you Aiden? Why is this is this something you choose to do rely on our defense, right? Yeah. Well. Sorry for trying to be. Defense. Right. And it looks good. We have players there. We have trae white. We have a first round pick. We have Edmonds. Hide we have joint power, but like the employer. I'm sorry. Yes. Torres up the for tougher nuts. Insane. Yeah. Well, I don't know. He's good. And that's four guys. They have eleven it's sports. Sometimes it's hard to predict. What do you want to do about it when it cut? What do you want to do about it? I dunno. Observation they were terrible. I've said it ten times already in an hour and a half. So thanks Aiden. Yeah. It was bad. It was bad. Any anybody who was hoping you were going to have a year here where they could win games. They won games last year, which was take the ball away like crazy, especially when they got off to the hot start. And like, so they basically lends itself to I'm winning with defense when really I'm winning with takeaways, right? But still like, okay. You know, the chiefs game last year, I'm gonna low score. I'll just get a couple of plays. I'm gonna run and effectively. How's that going by the way, the running effectively Josh Allen had thirty two yards rushing McCoy at thirty nine? It's not that's not happening..
