Seattle to open more permanent COVID-19 vaccination sites in Rainier Beach, West Seattle, Lumen Field Event Center
"Seattle is setting up permanent mass vaccination sites at the lumine field events center also in rainier beach and west seattle seattle mayor. Jenny durkan says the expansion will reach thousands more vulnerable residents each week and thousands more with enough supplies. And i spoke with mayor durkan about this expansion and why it is so needed here. Despite the fact that seattle was the first to kind of experienced both hospitalization deaths of covid because of the hard work sacrifices that the businesses and residents have made we have for the top thirty cities or so in america the lowest level of disease in hospitalization and part of the reason for that is. We're able to stand up just a first in class testing system. We wanna first in class vaccination system and so we're building the infrastructure to make permanent some of our vaccinations sites and to be able to be one of the first cities in the country to vaccinate all of its residents that need to be vaccinated and of course it requires us to get a steady dose of the vaccines. But it's looking like we will in some very excited. They will make a couple of our vaccination sites permanent We'll stand up a mass vaccination site and we'll open additional sites as time permits well. We're the new mass vaccination site you're talking about coming online. The new the new mass vaccination side is going to be what's now called. Bloomfield used to be centurylink people. Think of where the seahawks play. And how about what's going to be going on at the rainier beach and west seattle facilities those way. We'll make the rainier beach and west seattle facilities permanent vaccine sites It's incredibly important just to be able to reach all parts of our community particularly those who've been hardest hit by the virus and we know clearly from the data that Our communities of color in particular have been hit by cove not just the health impacts but the economic impact and the health impacts have been significantly disproportionate. So i'm very excited. We'll be able to keep that rear beach Facility open and have it as a permanent vaccine location and also very excited that we can keep west seattle open because as you know not only are the number of underserved communities in that area but it also because the west seattle bridge it's access to other parts of the city has been significantly diminished. So we've got to bring the vaccine to the people that need it absolutely. You mentioned the communities of color. Do you know what the vaccination rates are looking like when it comes to inoculating these communities much more percentage of the population. Getting the disease and much lower portion. Actually getting the vaccines. That's why the city of seattle has stepped up and are are. We are really providing that equity lens or vaccinations and really proud of seattle fire department. And all the work. They've done but very proud of the community based organizations who have stood up helped us implement a program so that we've been able to do pop up clinics in the communities for those who've been under served and seventy percent of the vaccinations that we've been able to deliver have been to buy pock community. We're really pushing with our community. Based partners to get those people who might not have access to healthcare. They might be hesitant to get the vaccine or have language barriers and by doing that. We're we're reaching the people that that are most vulnerable and need the vaccine. Will you mentioned hesitancy in the groups that you've had discussions with we've heard a lot about this certain communities of color just being simply afraid to get given the us history and medical practices here in our country. But do you really think it's an issue or are we just talking about lack of access to the vaccine. So i think it is both i think right now because we are in the period where they're scarcity. We're working hard to make sure that we get the shots arms and and and getting them to the right people so using the lens for that soon. I think we will have enough vaccine to deliver. And then we'll have to shift to try to get people who would be hesitant to come. You have to remember that. For the last four years the federal government waged war against are immigrants and refugees. It's hard to then turn on a dime and tell them they can now trust government. And so that's why it's very important to have community based partners that people that speak the language or that are trusted messengers and has the new mapping tool created by the university of washington helped you achieve these goals or is there something more that can better serve these bypass communities the tool has been very helpful because it gives us the actual data showing Vice zip code where the disease is most prevalent and so we can see using that tool that we have not been able to reach some of the communities most at risk for the disease that helps us target zip codes but we still need the community based partners who can work with people that they trust to get them to the vaccine sites.

Accepting Our Needs
"Every one of us has needs. There's no avoiding them when our needs aren't met it's natural for us to feel stressed and worried frustrated and hurt but equally. Sometimes it can be really uncomfortable to accept that we have needs in the first place. And it's common for many people to enter a cycle consciously or otherwise where. They're both frustrated that their needs aren't being met and frustrated at themselves for having needs at all. Today we're gonna talk about needs including importantly how we can identifier core needs get better at accepting those needs and maybe even find some healthy ways to meet the needs of other people. Tell us. do that enjoyed today. As usual by dr cancelled so dad. How are you doing today. I'm actually really good for us. Thanks for asking and some adult children. Stop asking their parents how they're doing so regular opportunity. That's very welcome. If you're a got adult kids you know you'll maybe get a chuckle out of this part and also. Yeah that's pretty real very real and also the subject is enormously interesting in part because it is grounded fundamentally he and three and a half billion years of evolution of life on this planet nets as real as it gets the life and death struggles of all of our ancestors reaching back in an unbroken line of descent of course to the very earliest creatures who somehow managed to live to see the sunrise to pass on genes that passed on. Jane's that became eventually the blueprint for us. Today that's the framework fundamentally for addressing our needs and soda nest. That discussion of needs. That can seem very psychological. A little woo may be in superficial in that. Had profound life and death forging of our capabilities to meet needs. Survival and passing on. Jeans is wonderfully interesting. Yeah so let's kind of talk about that and let's just start there in our book that we wrote together. Resilient we talked about there being three core needs safety satisfaction and connection. You've kind of already done that and your little deduction there but would you mind kind of explaining these briefly including sort of where they come from. We've covered some of this material in the past so we might do this kind of quickly. Great well this notion of the three major needs having to do with safety satisfaction and connection as umbrella terms is fundamental model really in biology and also in psychology and boil down. If you think about yourself maybe. Twenty thousand years ago excluding around the south of france during an ice age trying to avoid sabertooth tigers. You're a hunter gatherer. You're trying to get a meal or yourself. A million years ago in a small hamad band who were able to make fire and manufactured tools with brains roughly half to two thirds of the size of you today even further back about yourself starting to crawl out of the primordial sees three pro izzo well three hundred and fifty million years ago. Your early lizard like creature. It had i- hop scotched a little bit rock. Anyway what are you gonna do. What are you gotta do. What do you need will number one. Don't get don't die today strata. That's a big one number to get a meal. Get fed each some today. Okay so now. We're we're moving the satisfaction satisfaction the then third if you can procreate pass on your genes or fast forward it to stone age humans or us today. Basically don't die today get fed today. Get a hug today That kind of summarizes our needs. And if we don't meet our needs fundamentally especially biologically for a protracted period of time you know what happens for us. i. I have some guesses. You die yeah okay. Yeah so it can get very very real. Yeah for sure. So maybe bringing it into people's experience these days one of the reasons that the pandemic and all of its associated challenges has been so tough for so many people is that in a manner to attacked each of those core needs. It's attacked her. Need for safety because while it's a pandemic it's a deadly virus. It's attack our need for satisfaction because we can't get as many of the things that we used to get and certainly attacked our need for connection where we're more disconnected from people. Were more isolated. We feel more separated. Were doing this through zoom rather than doing it in person you know whatever. Your personal example is the ultimate anchor for meeting needs is raw physical survival so at the ultimate point where potentially dealing with hazards or situations could be in terms of physical body continuing think of that is the most route challenge to the need for safety and we can also be in situations where we starve to death. We cannot access food a lot of hunter gatherers and even agrarians even fairly recently face starvation and even in america today there are millions of people who day to day live with what's called food insecurity and it's estimated loosely that about a billion people worldwide. Go to bed hungry every night. And so this is a real to okay. That's an example in which the lack of satisfaction in a sounds as anchored physically. And we can even say it as well. Socially there's research that shows that certainly in early childhood if infants toddlers who are put into really situations because they're given up for adoption and then they're just languishing and some hospital and nobody touches them for long periods of time or prematurely born infants. Who were not touched. That too can pose a lethal threat but much of the time especially in modern developing countries challenges to the sense of safety tend to be more psychological indicated by feelings of anxiety where anger or helplessness. Those are three big flags challenges to the need for satisfaction that could have to do with accomplishing things or feeling successful or making more money. Being able to access pleasure of different kinds well impediments to the meeting of these for satisfaction are marked by feelings of disappointment loss frustration or immobilization or marked by driven us too extreme and addictions
As Telecoms Spend Billions on Wireless, Where Does That Leave the Wired?
"Telecom. Companies are spending a lot of money on wireless infrastructure to support their five g networks last week. The fcc announced that verizon spent forty five billion dollars buying spectrum in the agency's auction at and t. spent twenty three billion but in the meantime wired broadband infrastructure is not feeling the love. At and t. Has stopped connecting new customers to its dsl network. A report last fall found that it has deployed high speed fiber to only about a third of households in its network and it's got big gaps in low income areas in many cities angeles for is the executive director of the national digital inclusion alliance. Which wrote that report we are seeing. At and t. not invest in low income neighborhoods as much as they do higher income neighborhoods and to understand that in the inner in the united states. The internet is a commodity so they're looking for highest return and you have evidence of this right. You have put out a report to this effect. That essentially overlays the fiber investment with income and. It seems pretty clear we did. Yes released a digital redlining report in two thousand seventeen where we found that the really slow old dsl tended to be in lower income neighborhoods That went against the general understanding that it was rural areas that weren't getting the investment and then more recently. We did a report with the communication workers of america where their data found that. There were Large portions of. At and t. service that wasn't being upgraded to fiber and there were no plans to upgraded to fiber right. And then how does that. Connect to what we're hearing which is. At and t.'s. Plans to stop connecting even knew dsl users in those areas that have this older infrastructure right. So at and t. is really switching to a wireless model where they are relying upon the plans for five g. and their existing wireless which in a sense is probably great but for the folks on the ground. Not so great. If your internet connection you had been relying upon a wire line connection a dsl service and it's no longer. There's not going to be an upgrade. You have no chance of getting a faster speed and your only option for. At and t.'s. To switch to their wireless wireless comes with data caps. Right right so it's a lot. More expensive to maintain a wireless connection than a wire. Line connection i mean. We're talking about eighteen t because they're the biggest in heaven. Some ways been really conspicuous about this sort of weirdly slowing infrastructure. Build out but his. At and t. Any different than other telecoms in terms of this lack of investment in widespread fiber. We're seeing is is the lack of investment in the lower income neighborhoods by. At and t. With verizon we see skipping of whole cities so so they're making they're each making their own choices as to where they go with their fiber investments and for the rest of us who end up in any of these places where those investments aren't happening. We need to say. Are we okay with that or do we need to somehow influencing either their decisions or coming up with our own solutions. We currently have proposals in congress. Right from republican members of congress that would essentially prevent me broadband that would in theory expand broadband access prevent cities from building their own so those proposals that restrict cities from building their own. Assume that the incumbents are going to distribute their fiber in a way that makes sense for everybody so but it's not equitable and so it really comes down to are we. Okay with the inequity. I met okay with the inequity right. Everybody needs access to fast broadband and it needs to be affordable and so if we have places right now it's already state laws state laws that say no no. The local communities cannot build their own infrastructure and if we do that federally than limits all those options and we as a country relate. Yes we build things ourselves and then the government's like no no no. You can't build it yourself all. That doesn't make any sense. So then let's talk about this. The wireless future the five g future. Do you think that that will benefit some of these underserved areas or might we see the exact same thing where we now have next generation networks that further entrench inequity. I think we have to assume that. Five g will bring further inequities. There's no reason to think that the current technologies aren't being ruled out equitably that the newer technologies will be rolled out equitably. We all know that we should learn from history. Learn from the best and so just changing. The technology isn't going to change the business model. The business model remains the same and currently there is just to put a fine point on it. You said this is a commodity right. There are not regulations. There's nothing to prevent. Companies from not serving specific areas broadband is very lightly regulated. So at this point in time congress and others could choose to change this at this point in time. There's nothing to keep companies from rolling out broadband infrastructure. Where they feel like they're going to get the highest return. Angeles is the executive director of the national digital inclusion alliance in a statement. At told us that quote our investment decisions are based on the capacity needs of our network and demand for our services. It said any suggestion of discrimination or redlining was wrong

"Hundred thousand covert deaths a number that. Nobody wanted to see and as painful as that. Is you have to admit you have to admit it is nice to see. America's president actually take a moment just a moment to recognize the toll that corona virus has taken. I mean the only time the previous president showed any sadness was when he accidentally deleted fox news off of his. Dvr what a day for americans. What does that day. My sweet hannity has gone. The good news is that the number of new infections has plummeted in the last few weeks. But what's interesting is the number that they've plummeted to is where they were lost july. Which at the time. Everyone thought was so horrifying that the country immediately started locking down again. And this just goes to show you that your perspective can change based on where you're coming from. That's it's like. If i go to tech right now wolf i'd probably be like this is my life but if i went from being attacked by full wolves to one wolf. I'm probably be like what a relaxing way to stop the week. So look this is why it's so important to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. And don't give me any excuses about how you're too busy or it's not convenient last weekend and nine hundred year old. Seattle woman walked six miles in the snow to keep her appointment because the roads hadn't been plowed. Which is incredible. Although if you believe people stories walking miles snow is what they do all the time. They love that shit but still if a nine year old woman can do it. You can do it too. I don't tell me but trevor. I'm not ninety years old too young to get the vaccine right now. That's also no excuse a strange story now. Showing the length to florida women were willing to go to to get the vaccine. They're caught dressing as granny's just so they can get the shot now. Here's the thing it worked for. The first time around officials say the women are thirty. Four and forty four years old so you can see one of the more abundant and long cardigan. Didn't make much of an effort to cover up a vaccinators thought. They looked funny so they were stopped before getting their shots. And that's when they found out both women had faked their birth dates. Now officials want to know how they were able to get away with getting the first shot. The women are not facing any charges but police did yell at them calling their actions selfish okay. This is outrageous. You call that dressing up as a granny. All that woman did was put on. Its own and that other. One didn't do anything to wig hunch over or even easier just download the facebook phone. I mean if you got that you're seventy five minimum. If you want to teach away to the vaccine you at least have to put in the work. No one would have booked charade. I'm pretty sure. Mrs doubtfire wouldn't have gotten the kids back if he's just showed up like hey. It's me mrs doubtfire nanny. How did they even think that they could pretend to be old women at that age. I mean personally. I blame porn. You know they start putting women in the category of twenty six. Of course we have unrealistic ideas of what granny's look like but what's crazy is they would have gotten away with it if the doctors hadn't gotten suspicious. Hey wait a minute. If you're a grandma how come you haven't tried to set me up with one of your grandkids yet.

50- Deplatforming and Section 230
"You know there's a lot of things going on in the world but because trump is not an office. I actually don't have a good idea of what we're gonna talk about today so. Please tell me what we're gonna talk about well. We are actually an attack a bit more about trump because seems to linger here. But i thought you when i would talk about that. Subject of d platforming. Oh okay. that's interesting all right. So on tuesday february ninth. Trump's second impeachment trial began the senate. I decided fifty six to forty four. Vote that a former president can in fact stand trial for impeachment even after having left office and that trial move very quickly house. Impeach managers who serve as the prosecution team showed us some dramatic images and videos of what happened on january six when trump supporters attacked the capital and delayed congress's certification of the election. Remember there was just one single charge or article of impeachment against trump and that was for inciting insurrection. Representative jamie raskin was the lead manager and in his closing argument. He said it's now clear beyond doubt that trump supported the actions of the mob. And so he must be convicted. It's that simple. He was not. The trial ended on saturday february thirteenth now. A majority of the senate did vote to convict trump including seven republican senators. But the fifty seven to forty three vote. Fell short of what the constitution requires. And that's a two-thirds majority are fifty seven. The nays are forty. Three two thirds of the senators president not having guilty. The senate judges responded donald. John trump former president united states is not guilty as charged the article peach birth now trump was acquitted of that single charge of inciting the capital attack on january six and because of the acquit all. The senate never held a vote on disqualifying trump from office. So he's free to run for president in two thousand twenty four trump's the first president to be impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office and for that he makes history. But i'd like us to return to the riot at the capitol just one more time for a different perspective to look at the link between what happened in washington and what happened online. Theoretically come ready. let's do it so remember that. Many of the writers came directly from president. Trump's save america rally that began that morning on the ellipse. That's the park near the white house. And trump had addressed the crowd with some fiery language but it was elsewhere that really mattered for weeks and really for months trump had been on social media especially on twitter and facebook with false claims that there had been election fraud and that he not biden had won the election. And if you look back now you can see pretty. Clearly how much. Social media was tangled up in the events of january sixth so first barriers around the capital were breached by his supporters around one o'clock that day in about an hour later riders broke into the building and some of them started scaling.

NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow. He just kicked it back far for me

"For him. Know him and think he is tremendous and the team he put together. It's not just garland lisa. Monica former co is going to be deputy vanita. Gupta is going to be the associated. General and chris and clark's going to be in charge of civil rights as big and this is very not his big to civil rights leaders to placing the justice department. And that's a huge thing. And i think this is a very a very very good team. There's also some reports that could or has been thinking about replacing garland on the dc court of appeals with kettani brown jackson. She is a fifty year old black woman who currently sits on the federal district court in dc and also as someone who has been mentioned as a possible supreme court justice and so she could go to fill merrick arlen seat in the dc circuit on the dc circuit court of appeals. And then. perhaps. If brian retires you could get angie brown jackson as on the supreme court An lvad very young black woman to the supreme court of the united states which would be awesome so a lot of good things came from what just happened in georgia. What else can we expect from democratic senate and where are we still going to face challenges or we're going to face challenges in that the filibuster still exists so to pass most things not nominations not court appointments but most pieces of legislation in there are a few exceptions we talk about. We still need ten republicans and mitch. Mcconnell still has say under that scenario under large portions of the biden agenda and even still we have joe manchin a very conservative democrat. Kirsten cinema mark kelly arizona moderate democrats who have concerns with some of the more progressive elements of the biden agenda. Some of the more important structural reforms like turning into a state or some of those sorts of things. So this is hard. I fifty fifty cents very very challenging. They take a long time to organizers. Pretty intense negotiations between the majority and the minority about how you said how many people are on each committee. And how you set it up and all of that so this is an incredibly narrow path to get things done but it is a path and that would not exist under any scenario if we had not won both of those seats on tuesday. Few points here. Because as you know. Dan i have some concerns about the filibuster and i have for a while. The reason that we can't you might be thinking. Why can't we give her the filibuster like we said we wanted to. Well because joe manchin doesn't wanna get rid of the filibuster fifty one votes to get rid of the filibuster which we have. We have fifty. Democrats have fifty one votes but we do not have fifty one democratic senators. Who want to get rid of the filibuster namely joe manchin. Possibly some others to your. I'm not sure votes right now. I don't know that but like some of them. You could imagine pressuring you can imagine saying the voters of your state are going to punish you if you don't eliminate the filibuster and we're going to have a primary challenge like joe manchin. There's none of that joe. We're not getting another democrat out of west virginia probably in our lifetime. Maybe i'm wrong. I shouldn't say that at least in the next ten years. Let's say or another democratic senator virginia and certainly not another democratic senator out west virginia who is more liberal than joe mansion. Joe manchin doesn't care about your pressure campaigns. He doesn't care about you calling his office and yelling at him he does. He wanna see recently. He's there for a while. And he's just gonna be joe manchin and i hate that you hate that but like that is the reality that we have so the question is. Can we ever get to a point where there's legislation that comes to the floor. That's so important that mcconnell's obstructing so much that we somehow can convince and biweekly. I really mean. Joe biden his administration because again joe. Joe manchin doesn't respond to popular pressure and is somewhat insulated from political pressure. can buy ever convince mansion to change his position on the filibuster. I don't know. I don't know the answer that question the other opportunity we have. Is you mentioned. Most legislation requires sixty votes. There is something called a budget reconciliation. Bill where we can pass that bill with only fifty one votes. What can you put an budget. Reconciliation bill well first of all. You're only allowed one budget reconciliation bill per year. You can stuff whatever you want in that so long as it is about taxing and spending and has to do with actually changing the budget itself. So what can get done within. Budget reconciliation with fifty one votes. The two thousand dollar checks can get done. Democrats can expand eligibility for obamacare subsidies. They can get medicare to negotiate for better prescription drug prices. That way you can actually change the medicare age. The age of eligibility for medicare within budget reconciliation which joe biden because of bernie sanders has promised to bring down five years. I read that you can possibly do a public option within. Budget reconciliation tax hikes for the rich. Anything that has to do with taxes you can do in budget reconciliation which means climate spending investment that has to do with climate. You can do some immigration things within budget that have to do with money but still a lot immigration stuff would actually have to be real legislation and then the things that you can't do our minimum wage immigration guns in. This is the big one. That worries me that i wanted to ask you about is all of these. Democracy voting reforms that we know we need to pass in order to make sure that we can still have free and fair elections again. Like what do we do about. Hr one which we've talked about before. Which is the house. Democracy reform bill. they are going to rename the john. Lewis voting rights act. What do we do about that bill. Does that is that. Is that dead on arrival biden. Try it anyway. What do you think. I don't wanna say dead on arrival but there is not no plausible paths who ten republicans supporting something that helps.

"One hundred eight thousand calls to unregistered voters with new georgia project action fund and and we had five thousand volunteers distributed to local georgia organizing groups on the ground so Thank you to everyone. Who signed up to adopt george ryan. Who helped out in volunteered or donated in any way over the last couple of months. You really made a huge difference so as we said you know democratic turnout drop by less than republican. Turn out what role. Do you think trump played in the the drop republican. Turnout obviously to possibilities here. Republicans stayed home because trump wasn't on the ballot or they stayed home because trump into a greater extent lunatics like. I told them that the election was raped. I think it's more of the former than the latter you think it's more that trump was on about. Yes if republicans are now was sky high. If democrats had been lower than it was we would have been blown away by. How high republican turnout was for this. That like we talked about how high democratic turnout was unprecedented. The also in president is just slightly less unprecedented and therefore they lost and so we had this hope that trump is going to convince all these people not to turn out because the election rigging but they apparently the georgia voters got the winking in the nodding and whence in one turned out. So i think it had more to do with trump not being on the ballot also democrats doing a better job of organizing. They out organized republicans. And so it's more. The democrats won the race in republicans lost it. I think that's very important it as we think about. What's gonna be really interesting because turnout was so high on. Both sides is was this the last election of the trump era or was it the first election of the post trump era. Does it tell us something about how the people are going to stay engage this incredibly high level post trump or is or will we look back and say this massive amount of gauge. What politics was the dominating. Point of discussion in american life was unique to trump. And i think that we're gonna we're gonna test in seattle through throughout twenty twenty one twenty two and it's i think it's a really interesting question about where things are headed so where the campaigns and their messages often were hammered covid relief throughout the campaign especially at the end when mcconnell blocked the two thousand dollar checks biden even focused on this message in his final campaign stop said their election will put an end to the black and washington on the two thousand dollars. Stimulus check if you send senator purdue and leffler back to washington. Those checks will never get there. It's just that simple. The powers literally in your hands or do you think that played. I played a huge role. It is hard to know. In the moment whether it was the checks specifically or the checks were the embodiment of a very effective narrative about republicans. The with all of this. I think is a great credit to jon. Ossoff raphael warnock in their campaigns is trump was the dominating omnipresent figure in the race. He was days before the election. He tried to bully the governor into overturn the results of the presidential election engage in multiple electoral crimes of moral travesties. He was injured twice. He was tweeting about it all the time yet. The senate campaigns ran campaigns. Like we did two thousand eighteen. They pushed trump into the background and brought the republican party and david producing county leffler specifically into the foreground and they ran against the against leffler and purdue as callous corrupt corporatists in the middle of recession. And that's where to be a very powerful message now. Is we think about how this plays out going. Forward to incredibly wealthy senators who engaged insider trading to enrich themselves off. The pandemic are particularly vulnerable. This attack but i think it has. I think some real lessons learned about how we talk about. Republicans not named trump and elections coming. I think it's a there's two sides of the republicans are corrupt message. There's obviously the negative message about republicans and there's the positive message about what you're gonna do. And using the two thousand dollar checks gave democrats the ability to offer voters a tangible benefit to voting for. Yes which is something that we we often forget this end and by the way. It's not just because stacey. Abrams made this point to me in the wilderness. Right when we about sort of some of the more the bigger some of them are bigger progressive ambitious ideas and she said here's the thing you need to be able to deliver for voters so you to propose something that is going to make. Voters lives better but also something that they believe that you can actually get done because if you promise them the moon you can't deliver then they're going to grow more cynical the next time and not and not come out and the two thousand dollar checks is something that the democrats can deliver right like it. It is very obvious that you can just you can pass the bill joe biden. Consigned the bill. You can send the checks. Like voters aren't stupid. They know they know what's possible. And what's not possible. And i think Democrats should remember that when we are campaigning. That it's not sometimes the problems with sometimes we get lost in like tax credit. Speak and we're talking about expanding the. It see you know so. Sometimes we get way too in the weeds and its benefits if people can't really understand and it seemed small and it seems like you know just nibbling around the edges and then sometimes it's like big in vague promises you know like That you make voters that they know that you're not going to deliver. So i think specific policies that you know you can deliver to voters that actually improve their lives incredibly important. That sounds obvious but it doesn't happen enough and it's hard. It's hard to find them. That are very tangible like that. That is very true. But i also think like as much as worn off did a good job sort of calling out the corruption of these two republican senators. I didn't see a tweet an add. Anything from those do candidates where they didn't mention and whereabout healthcare jobs injustice healthcare jobs injustice health. They have three things that they said over and over and over again and then they had specifics backing that up. So i thought that was pretty good. Do you have any other lessons that you think we can draw from this. From this race going forward. I mean there are three lessons as negative message against republicans around a popular economic critique of republicans pushing trump out of the narrative. As much as possible. Is your your point specific populist deliverables in terms of policy and then i think the other thing is they ran big bold campaigns. They did that they were not. They were not bear centrists. They were not embarrassed to be democrats. You see that a lot in a purple state. They ran ads with john. Lewis joe biden. They ran ads with barack obama. They were proud. Democrats who ran big bowl campaigns. They they ran from position of strengthen hope and not fear and i did not have to be that way. You often see it in these these runoff elections. Where you're trying to just win would you expect to be low turnout and a very motivating race. And they've benefited from it. I hope that lots of democrats follow that lead in twenty one and twenty two. I think there's something to learn from raphael warnock and his campaign. I mean we have the first black democratic senator from the south he ran a like you said afraid campaign where he was unafraid to embrace being a democrat.

"It is a that is the absolute tribute to grassroots. That's the only way you find. Those people is through the hardcore work of organizing and it is. It's a tremendous feet. It goes against history in relatively recent history. There have twice been georgia senatorial runoffs. After democrats won the white house in both cases the democrats lost including a democrat incumbent losing because democratic turnout was diminished through complacency etcetera. And this time that didn't happen. Our turn out was not in the ninety percent of november turnout on a runoff election. That happens three or four days after new years. It's unbelievable it's unheard of. It doesn't happen. There's there are no historical examples of it happening. That i've heard someone can prove me wrong but it just it just doesn't happen doesn't happen for so the turnout turn it into being four point. Four million all the prognosticators lot know folks who were on these campaigns part of the state party where people believe that. If turnout was north of four point three million it would be good for the republicans because it meant that they're going to match the democratic turnout and the fact that hit four point. Four million democrats still one. Is i think an even larger testament to the democratic turnout operation. Because we're going to talk about how republican turnout dig sag more than democratic turnout but republicans turned out in this race. They didn't like their turnout. Machine was strong like getting eight percent in the heavy trump districts of their november. Turnout is still very very good for a special election but democrats just did more when point just a few more interesting nuggets here youth turn out and you share of the vote. Went up a biden. One young voters by eleven points in november ossoff warnick won by thirty four points to the share of youth. Voters went out Let the latino share of the vote went up so they did. They did better among the latino voters who showed up ben. They did among latino voters who showed up in the general And then as you mentioned the one hundred and forty thousand voters who voted in january. Who didn't vote in november. Were disproportionately young and people of color So two very heavily democratic groups three reasons. You went race organizing candidate message. Let's with organizing what happened here. And i know you're gonna talk a to Nc about this more but just as a top level a culmination of a decade of work. The did not stop. No one took a day off. They went back to work. The first wednesday in november encamped organizing kept turning people out it was local organizing community organizing and it is what has happened in georgia is the model for how we turn more of this country blue and we have to learn everything there is to learn from the people involved and replicate their model. Because you cannot turn out the vote like that if you start sixty days before the election or even six months before the election or even a year before the election. It is the work that that takes happens in the odd years. It's the work that happens when no one's paying attention and it is the organisers georgia mostly. Black women are heroes. They literally saved their public right here. And i just want to emphasize that point. Because you know there's a lot of people rightfully praising stacey abrams we do it all the time here. But it's it's it's obama used to say this to. He's like sometimes people think. I just like materialized on stage in boston to give that two thousand four convention speech. I think sometimes people think stacey. Abrams just like materialized and twenty eighteen just like suddenly showed up and gave a speech where she You know talked about voter suppression. How brian kemp cost her the election because of depression. And she was a star there then. And that's the first. A lot of people hurt stacey. Abrams right stacey. Abrams worked for ten years on this project. Ten years doing work that nobody wanted to do going. And she said this to you and your interview with her after After november like just going around to people with a powerpoint about why. It's important to invest in georgia. Because the demographics are changing and it's it's the most diverse battleground state in it's the youngest battleground state and if we organize and we register people we can do this and like a lot of the work of organizing the winning. So much of it is not glamorous. It doesn't look like it doesn't put you in the limelight. You don't get a lot of fame from it. You get a lot of rejection. There's a lot of losses. Cc abrahams in aside from when she lost two thousand eighteen. She endured a lot of other losses so to georgia democrat. Sort of the organizers in georgia who've been working on this for the last ten years but they kept at it and so a lot of these places that we look at today. That seem like it's going to be hard to flip or to you. Know whatever like these things don't happen in one cycle and just because you lose cycle doesn't mean that that state or that district should be out of reach for you for the next cycle or the cycle after that like this is the work of organizing takes time and that is why say abrams and an latasha brown and say all of these people longer wire grow like all of these people who've worked so hard in georgia have have finally succeeded because they put him to work for so long look they. They registered seventy thousand voters between november january. Seventy five thousand voters. They registered more than half of them are under thirty five. They started knocking on doors again. That's a difference from the general election. There was in person campaigning And i just wanna give a shout out to everyone who participated in vote. Save america for this especially our team at crooked basically took time off and then just work through thanksgiving and and christmas to get Adopt st george up and running and then everyone who signed up. We had forty one thousand people sign up for adopt georgia to adopt georgia between november and january raised. Four point two million dollars for the get mitch fund for us off and fair fight. Action raised one point six five million dollars for every last vote fund which included black voters matter in the new georgia product..

"Million times It's why we do this. I think the next department of justice We're gonna talk about merck garland and a bit in the f. b. i. Have to go back to taking white nationalism and right wing extremism seriously. Surveilling it going after it. It is a incredibly dangerous threat to this country from within and that needs to be a priority And then you know then. The work of the work of elections in the work of democracy. Right like i. I think that as you said like the odds are that we will face this kind of hate and violence again in the sad truth is it's always been a part of who we are country but you know our friend Ben rhodes pointed this out yesterday. Tweeted there's always two competing stories about america and where country of slavery and civil war and jim crow and horrific racist violence. But we're also the country of the civil rights act and the voting rights act and martin luther king junior john lewis and ultimately i think politics is about us choosing between those competing stories and the story that we chose on tuesday night look very different than wednesdays and it was almost poetic right like donald trump ends the november election by trying to disenfranchise millions of voters specifically suing to throw out ballots majority black areas like detroit and philadelphia in milwaukee. Meanwhile mitch mcconnell's senate majority depends on to georgia senators who have literally profited off the pandemic while denying relief to disproportionately poor and black and brown citizens of georgia. Who are hurting most of them. Kelly leffler runs one of the most racist campaigns in memory against her black opponent. And what happens. On tuesday a multi-racial coalition of whites and latinos and asians and more black voters than have ever voted in any election in any state. Ever turn out to end mitch. Mcconnell's majority by electing a young jewish kid who worked for john lewis and the first black democratic senator from the south who literally preaches for martin. Luther king junior's pulpit and that's america to we have a good clip of Warnock from his victory speech day.

"Because i see that going around a lot and we just got to talk about the twenty fifth amendment amendment of the constitution is provides for linux succession removal of the president. In case the president falls ill or dies or something like that. so what. here's what happens. If if a majority of the cabinet decides that the president is unfit to serve. When the amendment was conceived it could either be because the president has a stroke and is in the hospital and not conscious or because he's donald trump and a fucking lunatic. Take your take your pick. So if a majority of the cabinet including the vice president decides that the president is unfit to serve. They transmit a letter to congress saying so vice president takes power. Then there's then trump gets a move if the president then says no. No i m fit to serve and these people are trying to stage a coup. The president sends a letter to congress. Saying oh i am fit to serve. And then what happens is congress if they're not already convened must reconvene within forty eight hours and then if and then congress basically has to vote to keep the president out of power needs a two thirds. Vote in each house to say yes. Donald trump is unfit to serve. So you're not going to get that vote do out in the house. That's that's that's harder than impeachment because impeachment unity thirds in the senate majority in the house too key to maintain the twenty fifty two thirds in both chambers. Not going to get the only thing here is it also says in the constitution that congress has twenty one days to make that judgment and to take that vote so if the cabinet did this if penta did this nancy pelosi could just stick around for twenty one days before taking the vote and we'd hit the twentieth and that would be that donald trump wouldn't be in power for those days. Mike pence would so you could if you want like go through the cabinet list. Donald trump's cabinet and see There's fifteen of them including the chief of staff gets to be a cabinet member in the administration Obviously mark meadows in voting against him. See if you can find eight votes in the cabinet to you know say the donald trump I was doing it where you were you looking at the just for fun fun game i was just kind of look through it. Like but there's there's not a lot like gina hassle. Do it at ca. Probably steve mnuchin after embarrassed him. Maybe alex as our after he embarrassed him. Yeah maybe but like pompeii. Oh i don't know. Can you imagine if we survive this moment as a country and we stopped the planet from alexander and like a hundred years from now. School kids are learning. Why this guy was president for like eight days at the end to having to explain this moment to them so anyway i mean look. I think what romney said last night is probably correct. Which is that. We the practical effect of all this is going to be that we're going to hold our breath for the next The next thirteen days. We should also say that late. Last night i think four in the morning eastern. The white house did release a statement from donald trump saying pledging an orderly and peaceful transition in saying that he believed on the twentieth. Which don't have that statement. I don't know how much it means. Don't know how fast he basically retract it when he gets back on twitter. But that is where we are as of Let's see ten thirty pacific coast time today on thursday. Donald trump pledging orderly transition on the twentieth christian about long-term. Like what do we do about this violence. What do we do about this extremism. What is joe biden due to try to heal this country. He did speak yesterday. As this was this was happening. I think we have a clip of biden speech. The scenes of chaos at the capital do not reflect a true america. Do not represent who we are what we're saying or a small number of extremists dedicates. The lawlessness. this is not dissent is. Disorder is chaos borders on sedition and it must end. Now where do you think you think about in speech and what do you think of the path ahead for him and trying to piece all this together. His speech was great in some of the things that frustrate a lot of democrats about joe biden. The primary are why he and sometimes that's for sure doesn't primary sometimes but that is why he is. He is the person best suited to this moment. He is someone who approaches things with decency and not anger. His natural instincts is unity in forgiveness. And that is the right temperament for this. He's never someone who's going to throw gasoline on fire. He's going to always try to sort of appeal to the better injury. Even those people have demonstrated no evidence of having angels. He is going to try to do that and he should continue to do that. I think we all have to understand. And i imagine that joe biden does understand this as well as the solution to this problem is not something that happens within the traditional bounce of quote unquote normal politics we are. We are not a tour of red states away from unity. We are not more drinks with mitch mcconnell away from unity this we are not one infrastructure. Bipartisan infrastructure bill. Away from solving this. This problem is endemic to american. Society is something that includes politics my politics that goes much beyond politics and we have to really take a step back all of us right. This is a problem for joe biden in the white house to solve in. Think about how we fix it because our country is coming apart at the seams we have. We had an armed insurrection in the capital by people who believe most of them to their core something that is probably not true and that lie was spread all across this country by a broken miyako system my social media platforms by politicians. Who knew better in none of that is going to get better on its own. We are not fourteen days. Rubbermaid is from normalcy. My we have. There is a lot of work that i don't know that anyone. I certainly don't have the answers to this but it is much bigger than one person sitting in the white house. Starting in two weeks i sort of have a few specific things and then one thing like we need to regulate these social media platforms and not just like wait and hope that like out of the goodness of their heart. You know mark zuckerberg and and And and jack going to suddenly decide to like implement policies that protect people and and and stop the incitement of hate and violence So there needs to be some regulation of these platforms when you more pressure on right-wing media i think there needs to be more competition for right wing media from progressive media..

Including interview with to one of the organizers whose years of work made the senate victories possible. On tuesday night. But we've been robbed. The joy from those victories by a mob of violent extremists who are encouraged to stage an insurrection against the united states government. By the man who was supposed to be leading it and so that is what we have to talk about i. The congressional certification of the electoral college votes on wednesday should have been a routine event. It usually is but donald trump and well over a hundred. Republicans in congress led by senators. Josh hawley ted. Cruz decided that they would object to the election results. In an effort to overturn the will of the voters. Donald trump also urged his supporters multiple times to descend on washington over the last week. Saying quote be there. It will be wild then on wednesday morning while congress gathered to certify the election trump incited a mob of his supporters outside of the white house of them armed and told them to march towards the capital to quote give are republicans the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country and they did and they clashed with capitol. Police and shots were fired and four people died in the entire united states. Congress along with the vice president either barricaded themselves in offices or evacuated from the capital while trump supporters stormed the building carrying weapons trump flags and confederate flags. Pipebombs were later discovered and detonated at the capital the republican national committee and the democratic national committee. It was the first time the us capital had been breached since the british invaded during the war of eighteen. Twelve except this time. The invaders were extremists. Who had been incited by the president of the united states. So that's where we are. Dan i will. I'll stop there and let you react to what you saw unfold yesterday watching the everything that happened. Yesterday was a mix of emotions. It was incredibly scary right. You and i both worked in that building. We both worked in bill after nine eleven and the idea that people could just walk right in there and take it over with all the scares movement places incredibly scary. It was sad and just a terribly a viewed. What was going to happen. simply with. Just the overly ambitious snake oil salesman trying to Overturn the will of the voters and impotent display authoritarianism as a dark day for democracy. But when you have an armed insurrection. Egged on by the press united states like that is an sad day for democracy and on top of all of that. It was absolutely infuriating so preventable and we. We knew we were headed in this direction for years. Now and all of the various stakeholders republican party in the right wing media at the social media platforms just stood by in washington happening. Ignore the warnings and we ended up criminal and we are so incredibly fortunate for as horrible as yesterday. Wise that it wasn't so much worse there is so much there could have been so much more carnage your could have been. I mean there were bombs there. Were guns like as horrible as it was. It was a fraction of horrible. Could have been a couple of things had gone differently. I also find myself. I was scared at times a lot of times but really really angry When we talked about this monday on mondays pod. And you know like when i thought about the certification process and holly crews like i was i remain enraged at those fucking people but it was like these assholes are going to stretch out the process and then they're going to be voted down. There's no chance they succeed. There's no chance that fuck and pence delivers the victory to donald trump. that donald trump thinks pence. Could've but he can any way like all that was. Just it's fucking upsetting but it's garbage you at the end the pod. We said something like if you're in dc. Be careful. because i did think about the crowds that were coming to. Dc and that worried me more than what was actually going on in in the congress. And i was texting with mutual friends of ours in d. c. Our friend my golly who was like they can have just getting the family out of here on wednesday. Because it's going to be so bad. And i was like oh god that is going to be bad and then we saw this happen. I mean one of the tweet. They're really summed it up for me. shared a lot from someone named ed stern. He said well that escalated steadily for four years. Like the scary thing about it. Though is we. We all knew it was coming. Something like this was eventually going to happen. We were all afraid of it. We've also when say we. Democrats journalists a lot of republicans but never trump republicans like a wide people all over the world. Saw this coming so this kind of thing coming someday and yet we couldn't stop it right there. We were almost powerless to. We didn't try mainly we try well mainly because the only way to have stopped this was to improve impeach this man anytime over the last four years and republicans protected him too. Many republican protected him. It is it is the reason to this day that he remains a threat to this nation because too many members of the republican party too many elected republicans have chosen to protect this man and so the rest of us have to sit here and worry that something like this could happen and we are powerless to do anything about it until he leaves office. And that's what's really that's really awful and by the way it didn't just happen in d. c. the state houses in georgia and kansas in other parts of the country There were trump. mobs there to raffin burger. The secretary of state and georgia had to be escorted out of the state house there to protect him And just you know what happened in. The capitol building was just fucking atrocious. They vandalized offices. They were down on the senate floor. They were in pelosi's office wrote murder. The media on a door and big letters. I mean it was revolting. It was revolting. And my i think my first question is out of many questions like they're thousands of people at the capital. There were twenty-six arrests on capitol grounds on wednesday only twenty six. How did the capitol. Police failed to secure an event that was being attended by the entire united states. Congress the current vice president united states and the next vice president. it's dates. I mean this was like a president and nine supreme court justices short of state of the union. Which is the most closely guarded heavily guarded event in america every year. What the fuck was going on. I mean it was clearly one of the greatest security failures in modern american history since nine eleven worse than nine eleven. Like just it will like. It's nine eleven. If they hit told you nine eleven was going to happen. And you didn't prepare for it right. Yeah and there needs to be an investigation into what happened with kaplowitz. Why did they fail to prepare. Why or some of the cops taking selfies with the protesters their videos that we lack context. So you want to know more about about opening the gates and letting people in. Why did that happen. There needs to be an investigation their accountability and they're likely needs to be changes at the absolute topic. I believe this is your job right. And i like what i worked for the senate minority leader. He was protected by the capitol police. Twenty seven. I been a lot of time with him. A lot of really really good..

The aero package was a lot better than than last year. Short-track obviously the lower down horses. Make sure you can get behind the car. You can raise some kind of doing race review coming into this weekend looking back to twenty eighteen. I've forgotten how much better it was versus. Nineteen so at a lower downforce was a big part of it. But you know hats often ask the track for doing the. Pj One and for the tire they brought. I just think that the racing was incredible today. proud of the sport happened today. you know the the new rules back is the Jackson compound that was put down racetrack pedantic facing race you can follow a hell of a lot closer than you couldn't afford You know you could actually get into the corner behind the Guy.

Okay all right we're going to have the results is also later on in the show but coming up next. Jimmy Johnson explains why he remains confident heading into the weekend and why the next eight races are important to to the teams rebuilding process. That's coming up. Welcome back.

I'd like to be one of those windows. It's for the kids so it's always good and on Wednesday. Jimmy Johnson sponsor ally financial hosted a group of local students this on the Hendrick motorsports campus part of ally fuelling futures a program that educates middle and high schoolers about career paths in motor sports as well as the finance finance relief force. Jimmy was involved in last year's memorable finish at the rose bowl by he hopes this time around. He'll be in victory lane peaceful with our gave birth for years. Jimmy Johnson and his wife Sandra had been giving back to public education in today's no different although it has a little bit different spin on Jimmy. What are we doing here today. Yeah this is largely allies initiative where they really want to teach financial responsibility to kids all around the country we're here today at. Hendrick motorsports went a high school. Students are here and not only learn about financial responsibility but also you know the career paths that exist in a place like Hendrick motorsports where you'd think was just racing but when you really break it down there's engineering and marketing and public relations in a variety of different things that hopefully we can inspire here today at in their stem students so they're interested interested in engineering but but to get that financial element obviously allies bank main focus that'll be key for managing your money to me right way to learn that yeah we had to learn the hardware bravo in typical fashion they want to do it right and and it's a big initiative for them and so it's really important to them to teach that financial responsibility and and I'm taking some notes because I have a nine and a a six year old coming along and we're trying to take care of allowance right now notes from them back to you. Perhaps on the road this weekend because there's not a lot of the data. What did someone call it a subset of one. We have right for one race but going back to this place now. What's your forecast this year. I just need to make that last. yeah that'd be a very important part and not crash morten but it it just a really technical and demanding track and then. I think the changes made we're going to add add another layer of that. the garage area smart you know so. I think our cars are just naturally going to be quicker. We're in around there. Faster Pace plus the higher downforce force. We have on issues package. I think the higher downforce should bring some comfort to us. We're really on its last year so I'm hopeful at least that the higher downforce Coleman cars out a little bit and you mentioned the exit that was that last lab. That's where you nailed it right and you had an incite. You're under a lot more pressure last year I would think because it was a transfer race for story this year a little bit more free and easy and maybe that much more dangerous yeah. I think for a couple reasons one. You're absolutely right with the transfer. Although I wasn't thinking of it it was all about a win I could've finished second transferred and moved on but I was thinking of the wind and then you know just in a rebuilding phase right now. We're trying to rebuild the forty forty eight and make it into what it would will be known as from from this point forward clearly. We have a huge history which had canal the helm car. the history of the car is all about but but we're in a building face in two thousand nineteen really has been a building face. I think we're in a good spot now and we're really looking to these final eight races to set aside for two thousand twenty okay so let's go ahead and talk about the fact obviously looking for redemption this year at the Rosebowl. Can it happen. I mean when you're not in the playoffs. Jimmy Johnson I mean he had a shot last year. It was going for that win. You just said I think it really can happen last year at the robot me from the time that they designed the racetrack. When we started testing testing there he was just on it and you know he's got a road course win but you wouldn't consider Jimmy Johnson the best road course driver out there but I mean he showed up. They were quick from the moment. They got in the race track. During the weekend he was fast and and obviously right here. He had an opportunity to go for the win and now I know I know some people at the time when like why didn't you just settle to make it to the next round the let's not Jimmy Johnson style. You don't win seven championships settling he hasn't won for a while so I don't see now this weekend if they have that same type of speed where he's got no pressure trying to make it to the play. He's trying to spoil everybody to go out there and why he can't do that. Yeah well first of well. He sent it in there which I thought was awesome to watch and I think one of the things I remember from last year was how fast he was actress Chicane. We've completely changed that he was just incredible. Bill meth remade made that huge run on Martin tricks junior coming to that final chicane was that batch when he just got an amazing run through it he was so faster through there all day so I think that was was something that's maybe been taken away from them in terms of what was so good there but he mentioned having higher downforce having more security in the car sorts of things. I think all that's just going to play if you had you were comfortable last year. You're probably going to be more in terms of just having more downforce. The cars could be a little bit more underneath us. Hopefully I'm hoping we'll find out and I think it just having that second year of knowing it's not such an unknown all that through winds up and I think there's an air amongst that team and from Jimmy of confidence I sense you know I know they've mentioned to me a couple of times about having good vibes within that race team and I just think that right now they're in a zone of seen like hey we don't have much to lose at this point so everything serval positive and they he mentioned you building towards next season. I absolutely think that race team is in that positioning okay. We're not gonNA give them to the changes that they made to the track layout. That's coming up later in the show but Jimmy did have a quote last week on racing as a non playoff driver he said I saw quite a few situations where drivers in the playoffs took. Some desperate moves out there. It's not having to other drivers. I have a a few make a move on me as well. It's a tricky situation to be and I know they're going after every point they need but I am i. We currently plan to not allow myself to be used up as I was in Vegas a a couple of times so right there shows that aggression I mean you guys have both been there. You know like in the sense of your racing for something to even if you're not in the playoffs I both situations I made the playoffs and I've been the guy that that has been in the playoffs and no driver wants to be that guy that goes out there in REX playoff contender tender but at the same point they the people that are in the playoffs left understand that like hey the people out of the playoffs. They're quite upset. Jimmy Johnson's. He's never been in this position before so he somewhat forgets hey. He is that guy that used to do that. Every year and you know you take somebody like Daniel Suarez where oh he's he's bouncing off his teammate on the I lab where he got into Joey Logano. He's at an organization that has cautioned the playoff set of one races. He says he was at an organization. The previous couple years that headquarters in the playoffs in one reason he hasn't Wanna racing so he has a lot of pressure for him. Whether maybe he's fight for job or just trying to go out there and win his first interest rates the Austin Dillon thing in bowman at Richmond no or CR they've had struggling year. They're not happy so the drivers that aren't in the playoffs or frustrated straighted and I always looked at it is I don't WanNa be that guy that causes an issue with the playoff drivers have a lot more to lose than I do. So how much risk are are they willing to take and there's a fine line there so that's been my point and I find that some really interesting question. I get asked a lot especially this season driving in a part time capacity. You don't Indy. Just a couple of weeks. Ago was really awkward for me. In terms of I know for my race team. I owe it to them. That are out there looks the same to me doesn't matter what situation there and I've got to beat beat him because as a part time team every finish so much to us or not running there for points. It's literally what that finishes the end of the day matters most and I'll tell you though that no matter what when I was racing around gale swerves in Indy I couldn't help but think man. This guy is a lot to lose today. You know this guy.

"The last three years year two years i guess with this package edge they've been fantastic and we had really good cars before that before this package but but just solely on this particular arrow injured package junior murray sports has done a fantastic antacid job of making sure that we're as fast as we can be the hendrickson shabas done a fantastic job of making sure where we need to be and and we'll load it and i mean i. I told jason on the radio i said man. I'm easy wide open. It's i don't know what to do any better. It's really good and when you can unload that way and your teammates can unload oh that way even though they never been here i mean jeb and noah both were faster than i were in. The first practice never been here before. That's that's really impressive so as you look ahead to the play offs and and you would like to change tomorrow that you don't win at this point in time even if you don't get that win these next two races and head into the playoffs you still don't feel like that that you and your team or a championship caliber that you can be a one of those ford homestead. I feel like the last two months we've made huge strides. You know our program agenda sports. We obviously didn't get out of the boxes strong as he wanted to this question we we. We all talked about it. We know it <hes> but the guys went back to work. They worked hard. They've done a fantastic job the last two two and a half months we've we've kinda righted the ship. I feel like we've done a lot. Better job and you know yeah. I wanna win race. I want to win two races before the starter arta but last year we won five races including this race and went on to the playoffs and it was his lacklustre his is disappointing playoffs as you possibly i mean we had fifty or sixty points going into the going into the playoffs and still didn't make the final four you know we were. We were in jeopardy or not even making the final eight yeah you know and so i i look at it for us. We have to go to the playoffs and have momentum so these reasons obviously important but i don't believe at this point. We need a win. We need five wins in the playoffs. Including home said we'll be in great shape. We're we're almost out of time but what would to a romain here. I don't think there's words. They're gonna try but you know. This place is his historic. It's incredible and it would be it would mean a lot. I think i think i would actually do the second one more because at first when you saw the emotion i it was so emotional when i got done i was like man i. I don't remember half the stuff i did. I really don't i got pictures of all of it but it was just an emotional event. I feel like if you do that again. It would be way more emotional all right. We appreciate your taking thanks to all the drivers who stopped by by the way. What did we learn today. In the show kyle rut to drummer. I didn't know dirt rudder. Drummer austin is putting a mustang engine in a station wagon. Yes which i think is kind of cool station. Why that's going to be fast. Tyler is not gonna tell us what he's going to do.

I guess i just get lucky on these things. That's richard the rest of rebel curly. Leading expedia series standings sky. He has been on fire last ten race some of this. He's finished outside outside the top three only twice. Wow that's impressive. You gotta get on a good streak.

"<music> <music> dowling can is supposed to be the meanest racetrack trek darlington international right way the granddaddy of them all this produce victims of uncommon valor kale jabre dave pearson or move into a showdown you too tough to tame and i say the lady in black has eld up with with all her southern spellbinding term. This is a lady. You'll never forget walking to nascar. America stephen qatar jeff burton. Dale jarrett aren't ready. That's all it took for me. I'm fired up ready to go down one of my favorite race tracks of all time and now what has quickly become come one of my favorite weekends with all the history and the throwback this year the from nineteen ninety to ninety four era so i'll give you a little sneak that both you guys are in the throwback so i don't know how you feel about that. What's it like down darlington so i i loved arlington. I grew up my dad used to take us to watch races and used to sit in the grandstands which now is used to turn for covered grandstands your ears ringing for a week you know to me. The history is so rich there <hes> that track means so much to the history of racing and very few fluke winners have happened at darlington. You know whether it's this other five hundred or the four hundred they're both big races and they're hard to win. This one might have been a little bit of luke but but yeah we'll tell the story. Why are you so excited. The right front is knocked completely off well. We we'd gone there little laughs in the past and couldn't win a race their life beating lassie last we find a way to screw it up and every the time and then we're coming. We're driving and terror. Three starts pouring down rain and i knocked down. I'm one of four or five that hit the wall. I'm leading the race as senate. It's destroy needs a fronts now like so i kept shoved in third and second the gas to it and kept going around. Eventually you know had the red for the rain and they never quit raining so that's how we won the lead dollars laps and they've been found a way to win some kind of way like that very strange yeah well anyway you you can win at darlington is a good way such a tough track and probably doudou respect a david pearson being the one and only that might attained it more than bitch you as a driver. I think the rest of us were were in the negative side of that no matter how many we might have one or or how much fun but it was always such the cia think that's just the best thing is driver is that you knew what you had there and it was still so very difficult and as suspense have gone up there because of how the technology technology and the tires have gotten better. It's even made it even more difficult. We're looking forward to this weekend a lot of great paint schemes so you mentioned the speeds going up. Imagine turn to with this package how fast they are going to be going for. Turn to i mean the darwin's is one of the racetracks in the world where you drive in the corner. Go wide wide open and a gas in one and then lift off the gas over to turn to like that's crazy. You don't know where else but with the package run this year. I mean they are going to be rolling alternative. It's gonna be fascinating to watch and with that speed. I think it's going to be an interesting mix because you talk about darlington how challenging it was. I don't think it's completely the inaccurate to say when they had to repay their force to repave. You took a little bit of that kind of bite out of the lady in black. The pavement was new. You kinda run tires ars long time. You saw some interesting strategies. Well that is dawn when you look at the last couple races there the old asphalt even the look of the old asphalt is back. The tires are going aware but where does that match up with all this downforce. I expect the fall off to even be bigger because they'll go so fast start. I wanna do is going to be close to wide. Open may not exit a two but across the top one two then you get down in three. We're gonna see more fraud carried than we ever have so. When you talk about the difficulty of darlington the track conditions conditions i think are back to historic garden. We've always seen. I think a little.

"In a beautiful day here in the irish of michigan marty schneider steel del jared and jeff burton join you for a nascar america fan friday and tell you what guys qualifying session was fun i mean and kept seeming meaning as it went on another guy atop another guy and then the last guy goes out brand kazlauskiene wins the pole. Yeah i think the question was who would find something from practice. There are so many cars. I don't think we expect it in the speeds compared to the first time here. We're talking over half a second faster in the poll that just shows this was a non impound. Give those crew chiefs cars and say hey run. Whatever whatever set up you want to make a faster for one yeah the drivers like that too if you can have that car set up just for that one lap instead of having to try to go out and take a ray setup and go as fast as you possibly can with just a few adjustments there incredible at what we watch. They're just as the speeds continued to get a little bit better there but i don't think anybody was surprised at the car that ended up in driver <unk> oscar winning the pole and there is walking to our set. We'll have him on the set in mere moments two hundred one hundred ninety miles an hour for him steve but i have to the team that impressed me. The most was motorsports. I mean we talked about them this. They were a second off this morning. How did they find a second qualify up in the top five when the nine made his first lap but i thought it was going to be a bad day for the nine car as you mentioned one second off that is light years when it comes to nascar racing and a two mile racetrack. I haven't talked to allen gusts in the garage area. He said it's it's been a struggle. We're not bad. We're just too slow. We've made some changes but i think he played a pretty good handle poker because i was still concerned form and and i don't think he had any reason to be concerned improving greatly early in their qualifying round yeah and they've made great strides throughout this entire year and i think that was probably something that they came here. Maybe with one idea and made some changes because there's not a ton you can do but i think they knew exactly where they needed to go if they didn't have the speed that they were looking for but they found that in qualifying see if that translates into some good race cars formal sunday so we mentioned one hundred ninety miles our qualifying d._j. But when you get into the race and your wide open as long as he's drivers are how much of a challenge is the race of. They're gonna a face on sunday. Yeah becomes more of a challenge than when they were running around here a little over two hundred miles per hour. You're backing out of the gas and let nicole role for a while. You just have to hustle these car for so much anymore and if you're going to get speed out of them they can't be what a driver would like to feel which would be a little bit of a tug on the wheel as you go through the corner you just that describes rubs off too much now and so you have to drive these things on the edge all the time and a pack of cars where the air is just knocking you around and i think that's the biggest issue these drivers average face yeah when i talked to kuchis on what the goal is tomorrow in race practice the concern is they don't know because you could go out there and it's so circumstantial you can be in one pack of cards and your cars. There's a little tight the same setup two laps later in a different area of the race track behind a different group of cars can be loose so a lot of it is a big educated guess on how much downforce you need for sunday day how comfortable your driver can be and as d._j. Said he can't be too comfortable. He's too comfortable by itself is going to be nowhere near close enough to get a pack so he talked about the fact that this is a non impound weekend weekend they get practice tomorrow and then they'll get tech the cars before the race on sunday and everybody.
