From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business words daily on this Thursday, February seven American eagles latest ads. Don't look much like ads at all. That's because it's marketing executives made a remarkable choice. One that would be hard for any adult to make. They put a bunch of teenagers in charge in this case, they turned creative control of their at campaign over the kids, the clothing company, which has increasingly built its brand around diversity and often Tissot found ten teenagers of many different races, ethnicities and sexual orientations and ask them to document their lives, the teens selected from social media shot the images using smartphones. And film cameras American Eagle says no exotic locations were used the teens shot in their normal environments wearing American Eagle jeans, but otherwise doing whatever they wanted a one minute video from the campaign looks like any compilation. Of teenage Snapchat, videos. Some of the footage is shaky. The audio is less than perfect and scenes cut abruptly from one to another. In other words, exactly what American Eagle was going for over the past few years. American Eagle has been shoving resources at digital and social media campaigns, a logical approach given that jen's e represents eighty percent of its customers, and they spend most of their free time on-line studies show to that this group tends to be heavily influenced by their peers, and that they expect brands to reflect and support their self expression. Analysts say the company's decision to put control in the hands of teenagers makes sense in a way. It's just the next step for a company branding itself as real in a world full of fakes and while American eagles lifestyle brand airy has been responsible for much of the company's growth over the last year. The campaigns focus is not on airy. But on American. Eagles genes, according to the motley fool the brand is the second biggest denim seller in America following Levi's. A powerhouse that's hard to beat in the end, though, that choice may not matter. It's jen's e customers may flock to American Eagle social feeds to do what we all do.

Aerie bralettes save American Eagle, Juuls flavored e-cigs banned in Michigan, and Googles $170M fine

"This is snack. Daily is thursday september fifth when we think about this well. We're talking about brawl. We're talking about youtube kids and we're talking about the ban of he cigarettes you act. This is the best next day we've ever done. Yesterday was not nearly as good what's going on. Can i go into a little more depth than those clear share. This alliance american eagle stock fell by fourteen fourteen percent. It needs some c._b._d.'s good thing they're going to start selling cd and like a month now. Apparently the only thing successful about it's back to school season. One word rowlett's bras bras response to the boxer second-story google has to pay the f._t._c. hundred seventy million dollars in a fine and guess what is the number one thing that kids watch these days jack doc. I'm gonna go with what is youtube corect third and final story michigan. Just banned flavored e cigarettes so we're looking at what jewel did and didn't do yes. The michigan band starts in thirty days at ready now snacker. We're leaving dc. Were packed up. Jack scott is like travel hat on the thirty six our trip. It's an adorable hat now. I went for a run yesterday morning on the national mall in there. It's not a shopping mall record but it is way bigger than expected. This is central park lanky. 'cause i thought i was going to hit up the capitol building the washington monument and the lincoln memorial good luck yet a pace yourself and trained for six weeks. If you wanna hit those on a national mall run i was impressed by the capital disappointed my body but what they really need. They need those marathon. People northen nice older people who volunteer handout paper cups water like the seinfeld episode where cosmo cosmo kramer has the hotshots gets. Those people out on the national mall like seven am during runtime also great thing about washington d._c. The lowest prices shocked at the four dollar. Alphabet laughable was cheap but it also had secret sauce who wants secret sauce these days. You can't transparent sauce. I want to know the corey my sodium campfire the freedom of information act on that ingredients knackers degrade time of d._c. Awesome town and we hit those burger places. You guys should have daily. The food is said candy. They don't reflect abused her family. Still live just recommended beginning securities. It's not a research report or investment advice. What's the next digestible business uh-huh l._l._c. member p._c. More first story jack on pop. Your collar american eagle just got hammered. The stock is down but we're not really gonna talk about american. You know we're going to talk about another brand by the way this is. Not your like teenage us. American eagle. I know of american eagle has teen and twenty something something right like some hemp necklace. That's against your net. I was thinking to henley would like extra button not the case anymore. This is the american eagle that's starting to sell c._b._d. Starting in july old move to sign off this american eagle sales fell by one percent last. Let that sink in. This is a brand that growing it is contracted actually didn't even make any excuse accused blame school season yet said the last couple of weeks in july. Were not great. They did not perform. Well and people are just not buying their back to school club. Let's put american eagle aside for a second and let's talk about american eagles lingerie brand area which is a separate brand but it's owned by american eagle sales of that brand jumped by sixteen percent last quarter sixteen percent and this is a brand. That's like committed to brawl which like the boxers of the brower yes. I'm more space lot more room up more more comfortable arguably just as stylish now is the nineteenth straight great quarter of double digit sales growth area and we convert the math and that's like four and some odd years right yeah and if you compound that interest it's pretty darn bit. That sounds fancy now brawl. It's they even when as far to say that they got quote. Unquote renewed excitement at american eagle because of what areas that was the highlight of the earnings report but we went straight to the website mary what's what's happening here. Give me all undies are ten for thirty five dollars three fifty each now. Here's the thing that area that jack and i found fascinating. This is basically basically the future brand of american eagle because it's actually walking the walk on inclusion when you see with their marketing and what they're actually selling if you search area on google u._c._a. Slogan bras unseasoned swimsuits for every. That's like a dime a dozen. You're seeing a bunch of brands do that but we don't know deeper and we found out they're actually doing these kind of photoshop. Free pledge and all of their advertising and all of their model. They've got adaptive clothing which is a new smaller trend for disabled people to actually have clothing that works and fits that very few brands are actually doing if you've been listening to snacks you. We know that victoria's secret parent company l. brands yes struggling hard because the over sexualize nature of victoria's secret is out of touch turns out airy is taking market share directly from victoria's secret. It's a one on three next challenge moving beyond underwear into other things like leggings right mike. Maybe they go into the leisure after this. They're also trying to open forty. Standalone store is not just little corners of the american eagle aries store not pop up so jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies brawling over at this is the benefit of american eagle owning multiple brands. This is the student becomes a master situation. American eagles struggling area is booming. We've seen seen this a bunch of times in fashion where the spin off brands start to usurp their parents. Jack made well performing. Its parent company. J. crew urban outfitters is the parent company of anthropology. Anthropolgy is winning that race and then gap had to actually spin off old navy because old navy was linking. It looked so bad true. Old navy is soon to become its own. Publicly klay traded company now. The benefit of the brand is they can like try out new things catch trends and like make some errors along the way it's okay and that will save the parent company from becoming too old and obsolete because the kid has cooler four our second story google was just find cool hundred and seventy million dollars and it's a wakeup call to what kids are like actually watching these days which i had the idea of l. Let's get back to the fine. Can you talk. It's from the f._t._c. right in our backyard washington d._c. Very nice high m._d._c. they said in their statement that youtube which is owned by alphabet elite personal information from children without their parents can say it sounds it was broke the table over that dramatics dramatics microphones like scared won't even talk now. What does the law say losses. You can't do now you can't do that. We're talking specifically the children's online privacy protection. You'll see o- p._p._a. Coppa actually which says if viewers are under the age of thirteen it requires parental oh consent to collect data about their internet use. We know you're probably thinking google looks like the kid signed in so like how does google even know who's watching yeah well. They know who's watching because the video was on youtube youtube. Kids like a separate part of the website which google is calling the quote unquote new saturday morning cartoons. Yes apt it's twenty four seven yeah. It's not nickelodeon and looney tunes. It's youtube kid kicked up six notches by the way youtube has been unanimously voted. The favor website of kids to through twelve youtube is the favourite website of kids to websites. It didn't exist when jack bauer youtube actually uses that marketing language itself the f._t._c. mentioned yeah. This is a tough one nickelodeon dear by the way record fine at the f._t._c. is calling this. It's only record if you look at the very specific crime that was brought right now. We know you heard the headline number here one hundred seventy million. We've got a break this down with some context. That's because otherwise you're hearing here in everyone's getting find these days yeah okay the f._t._c. also find facebook earlier this summer for five billion dollars. Five billion is a a lot of order of magnitude different than one hundred seventy million so for alphabet the parent company of youtube one hundred seventy million dollars is zero point zero five five percent of its quarterly revenue in case. We didn't emphasize just there. How small that number is. They make that much money in thirty seven hours. Yeah pretty quick pretty quickly pretty really quick. The f._t._c. also decided on that number because they calculated. That is the extra revenue. They made in ad sales because they illegally targeted kids using their date david. This is like a straight up classic eye for an eye situation. You got one hundred seventy million from basically messing with kids data and i have to pay back so it's like if you stole a car the penalty not just give the car back right. Just please don't do it again. Not much of a penalty here also google has to commit in the future to label kids videos yeah and promised promise not to do any targeted ads on any videos labeled kids. Just don't steal cars anymore and we're all right so what is the takeaway for our buddies over at google. This case shows us the exact value of targeted versus non targeted at and it's a huge difference because youtube attracts videos kids watched using a little thing called cookies little cookies door. Now it uses the data from the cookies to target kids with tailored ads for them. Exactly little junior pops is up opens up the laptop. Maybe an ipad as i'm gonna watch cookie monster boom little junior's getting hit with nabisco ads like ten minutes that is a targeted nabisco ad because of cookie monster and targeting ads are way more valuable than blind ads. That aren't specifically giving to you. What you've been newspapers have blind ads. It's an ad <hes> everybody's gonna see no matter who buys it doesn't matter that cookie ad is seen by someone who is gluten free and someone who's gluten full newspapers aren't doing too well and the tech companies facebook google youtube cuban others. They have the targeted ads. They're making all the money. That's how you make money. In advertising for our third and final story jewel just came out with a way to stop underage sales else. It's too late because michigan just became the first state to ban flavored e cigarette back. I think it's time for your fund michigan ready for jack to the snack. Fact as early i went to michigan for public policies. This state of michigan is actually shaped like a mitt. Maybe as seen it and that is how mitt romney was named by the way has mitt romney's dad bad was the governor of michigan upper peninsula still respect to your part of that the uber now the context here is jewel jewel became a sensation and thirty eight billion dollar company by marketing picketing flavored e cigarettes basically on instagram is now gills marketing looked like j. crew meets teletubby who is fun and colorful and full of lacroix worthy names is like manga right this was like they came up with collaboration with jamba juice to pump out these vaping. It's non-jewish companies are just as as if not worse there flavoring their cigarettes bubble gum or or fruit loops incredible next up our gushers or dunk larussa now drew has ended those ads because they were particularly damning flavors yes and it was just a bad look but yesterday australia's governor of michigan gretchen whitmer band flavored e cigarettes like period the only east eggs you can get a michigan tobacco flavor warring not the kind of type. It's like more like a desert so that the first flavored e cigarette ban came from michigan. Normally activists moves like this or new york alpha and this is just after texas decided added to ban unwanted nude pics which was something that was lobbied for by the female dating app bumble bumble is actually based in austin texas and states are taking action to ban stuff that don't want so the fact that michigan went out of its way to ban flavored. E cigarettes not a good sign for the inside that mainstream cigarettes are in trouble. Now the root problem here kids are vaping at the level that has been unexpectedly high the f._d._a. Calls this a kids vaping epidemic twenty one percent of high school. It's like one out of every five and five percent of middle schoolers are vaping between history and english class used that five one out of five translation there is a cool table and if you're not vaping apparently on the wall street journal is doing this freakout <unk> out deep dive. It's happening and bathrooms happening in classroom. Regina george is making them do it so jewels stated mission is to get adult real cigarette smokers to switch which to the safer e cigarettes but the reality is. It's become a epidemic by the way theme of todays pot apparently like what's going on with the kids. They're watching like cookie monster youtube videos why why wait there vaping and their vaping so jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over at jewel. If the industry had self regulated itself six times fast this. It's been wouldn't have happened now. That's just what jewel did last week. It tried to regulate itself was something called racks retailed access control standards. This is the strictest i age verification system ever according to jewish self proclaimed they launched a point of sale system so if he actually tried to buy some jewel vaping cigarettes you gotta show your i._d. Eddie and they're going to really make sure it's legit and then they're gonna check actually bought any jewels lately right so they're going to make sure that you're not some twenty one year old older brother who's hooking giving up his younger brother and all of his friends with the dunk roof flavored ec jewel saying hey. We want every retailer comply with this by twenty twenty one. That's how strict here's the issue. Shootout looks like it was too little too late because states like michigan are taking action now. If they'd self regulated maybe they could've avoided jack and you whip up the takeaways for american eagle styles is a bit out of touch and its way down after poor back to school sale but it's area underwear brandis saving it just like many a spinoff before it google is promising to never target kids again with tailored ads unless the parents agree i which highlights how powerful tailored ads our third and final story was jewel had to deal with a ban on flavored e cig starting in michigan because it didn't self-regulate fast enough by the way fund early snack jewel is a private company but ultra which is public a cigarette company owns about a third of it now time time for an actual snack factor today. This one's about peleton and this one got sent in by zander. No peleton is appealing later. This year turns out. Peleton means something in in french. It's an old word that used to mean platoon exactly and in english it means a bunch of riders ran. A pack serving energy pumped their wheels bicycling term because you know the tour de france and everything yeah you see them like on the on the road win bike riders like gather together to conserve winners fund snapback jack and i are you're actually like at the microphones right up against each other here so we can make sure the air is flowing perfectly was efficient snacks pot. That's how we get. The snacks pods done in fifteen minutes also also a snack smackers. We loved snack today. We'll be back tomorrow. Let's do it d. c. You were great. We can't wait to true.

3 cruise disasters. 3 months. Carnivals stock drama. Aerie underwear surge. GMs big car battery.

"Nicholas John this. Is Snacks daily? It is Friday march six MARCECA. Happy Friday everybody nick. Can I run down? The last four Dow stock move smackers. Got Some big numbers here. Up and down plus five percent Monday minus three percent Tuesday plus five percent Wednesday minus four percent. Thursday kind of feels like cancel out. Situation is insane but this snacks daily is definitely at least ten percent better than you happens to be our best. We've ever done since the best one yet. We're kicking it off. With Joe Harding Oval Cruises had day. The stock is down because of another quarantined cruise liner. But it's down further. Then you may actually realize found actually the perfect historical analogy for the travel industry struggles right Jack. Second story what have we got? General Motors just unveiled a new four hundred mile electric car battery. You bought the three Hundred Mile. Or you're gonNA feel like an idiot but Americans have never really shown that they actually want electric cars in the I. If you build it will they buy if you build it? Will they come good question to ask before you invest in the third and final story areas the sub brand of American Eagle and it's basically like cairn its parent on its back over here on James in the fourth quarter? It's making moves to replace. Victoria's secret an American Eagle should just let it run free it before we get into that we've talked about hard seltzer taking share of throat of Budweiser and we've talked about. How White Con truly control? Eighty percent of the market sixty percent of the market being white. Clad is a shocker. It's like claw is sixty percent of the heart seltzer. Mark the any group but the government going to look into this or what but we're noticing a total lack of innovation white cloth. They're getting a little too comfortable in this dominant there lasting on their ruby grapefruits no new flavors in the past sixteen months pretty much. You're getting bored of Cherry over there. I actually just got a twitter. Poll like it was a sponsor to add. It wasn't your favorite white cloth flavor smackers. Whenever Jack and I do research on a story three days later we got a bunch of social media ads for like Whitelaw. Full sorted out full disclosure. Actually TAKE US. Everything were saying changed yesterday. Wondering if I'M GONNA get some hate for saying I think one class God decided to listen to us. Tweak a few things. They whipped up three new flavors lemon watermelon. And Tangerine would it kill you guys to like you know? Push the comfort envelope a little bit and come out with a viscous turns out their new flavors they just looked at whatever with the most popular flavors for non alcoholic like Seltzer Water. Not Going to lie kind of love. How efficient their marketing team is here but another thing. We found interesting variety packs. Get this knacker's sixty. Three percent of all heart seltzer sales are variety packs of a bunch of flavors that makes sense because a lot of people are trying hard seltzer for the first time. So you're not sure which flavor you like. You're a little curious your cell phone carrier but it also makes sense 'cause starburst Yep skittle jolly rancher. They only come in variety packs to and this is like the same thing but liquid alcohol. Let's be honest white-collar Drinkers. You can't eat on chill. Let's get to our three stores daily snacks about the handwriting. Food IS C- Candy. They don't reflect the views of the proper her family still live recommending any securities. It's not a research report or investment advice NATTA offer or sale of a security. That's next to start a business vigil financial LLC member Finra Slash SIPC for our first story. Jack Strawberry Banana Dachary. But there's always a mix carnival cruises continues. Its epic losing streak with another corona virus infected ship. Have you even been on a cruise here I am? I'm throwing basically these diets I've been on. It took the entire Kramer family on Roker of internal my guess part. Yep do it yourself softer vending machines? I can imagine one of your brothers like picking up Jack and put his face thirteen. I could reach myself now. The problem that is facing carnival cruises right now is now one disaster not to disasters say hat trick trio of three disasters in three months. The first one was when to Carnival cruise ships colliding like a port when they were like trying to back out of their PARKA. Snatches you've seen this. It's a three minute long train wreck stop Jerry just like a fender bender trader. Joe's parking lot except include millions of dollars of damage took place over three minutes. A second disaster was the diamond princess. This was the cruise ship that docked in Japan for two weeks because Corona virus was on board and everyone was literally there was an Australian couple. Get this having drones drop-off wine for them. Wow you gotta do. We gotta do a third one came. Yesterday there is another cruise line owned by Carnival cruises. It's called the Princess Cruise. It's sitting in quarantine in waters outside of San Francisco. Can we see this thing by the way we gotta get out of the studio? I haven't checked but it's got corona virus on board so it's pretty freaky. The stock of Carnival cruises fell fourteen percent Thursday on this third development. Now this has been really bad for carnival to say the least this spring tourism season is all but cancelled basically. They're spending spring break in their dorm room locking the doors according to The Wall Street Journal industry-wide cruises taking place on the Mediterranean Sea in Europe. Lovely place there are sixty percent full or as Wall Street. Seeing a forty percent empty over in Japan. The cruise industry is basically grounded. I just ducked now in the Caribbean. Things are still looking okay. Let's just say don't cough on board. Don't cough onboard now. Carnival stock isn't just down seventeen percent. Thursday it's down forty six percent since January. Seventeen it's worth like half as much as it was two months. But here's the crazy thing. If you look at the way the industry is trending Americans have been craving more and more cruises. Sales have risen seven percent each year for Carnival cruises since two thousand. You Got Little Jack Kramer. Sticking their faces under the ice cream machines and guess what there's nothing the cruise company can do about the beautiful thing about occurs. You book a ticket and you don't have to decide anything. The ice cream find year basically. It's like a lifetime pass. Just do whatever you want by the way snappers when the economy strong people tend to buy swimsuits. So Jack what's the takeaway for our bodies in shorts over carnival? Crews there is a really close analogy to the current travel industry crisis. It's September eleventh back then. Snacker as people were afraid to travel right after the terrorist attacks because of more terrorist attack. This time people are afraid to travel because of Corona back in two thousand one flight got canceled. Prophets of airlines got downgraded and stocks fell but fear of flying eventually faded in months and years after September eleventh. That's because terrorism couldn't permanently and vacations and business travel. This same could happen here. Potentially when you're looking for comfort or context and market movements knackers look for analogies for our second story. American Eagle just announced earnings. But it's really an airy company not to be mistaken with aries ope the horoscope or Aquarius. The other part of the horace go or a pisces was my birthday yesterday or anything easer. A in it. So airy is the company if you Google Yeah Airy is the first thing that shows up on. And that's because it's the sub brand of American Eagle that's targeting teen every was born in two thousand six render American Eagle and now graduated. It's making its way in the real world snack as you probably wanting. Okay you gotTa American Eagle. That's the brand. Everyone knows it's like Abercrombie's kind of awkward cousin logo is a lot like hollister. They're both like wing. Which kind of reminded us of Abercrombie? It's actually a vicious circle. We're GONNA find out one day. They're actually all the same companies. They're all making clothes in the same place in Ohio. But if you look closer. American Eagle sales overall American Eagle sales rose by two percent last quarter not much. Let's say you're part of the snacks team and Jack and I jump in snacks. Look closely earlier. You see that airy sales growth was twenty six percent last quarter and American. Eagle's brand growth was only three percent right to clarify. Actually it fell three percent. That's clarify American. Eagle is both the brand and the parent company that includes areas. Well Oh and by. The Way Airy has enjoyed twenty one straight quarters of double digit sales growth. That is five years in a row every quarter it down and let that one sink. How many bronzes that brawl? It's now how about the stories area has gone from side Hustle to full house in the last year. American Eagle has like slowly added six new stores for itself. It's like one per ten states. Meanwhile area had like three cups of coffee whipped up thirty three new stores in the last year or now one hundred and fifty airy dedicated retail stores in the United States jacket. I whipped out the blueprints on these things. Turns out there? Like ideally inefficiently size stores. These like big mall behemoth. They're half the size square footage wise compared to a typical American Eagle which is great because like urban stores are big these days in your stores. You not in a shopping mall of America basically. This is like one of those Auntie. Anne's Pretzel Cartwright. Now the area brand is also flexing. Its media muscles with offline event not only events this weekend. They're hosting their first ever actual big summit in Brooklyn. It's called the summit the Real Summit. It'S ALL CAPS. Yea Opera. They'RE GONNA be a lot of high waisted crop jeans going through Williamsburg's Larmer L. Stop Station there any snacks. At the real event in Brooklyn I would love pick so hit us up at Robin snap by the way. Ariel airy real sounds like area L. Who had the first ever brawl at made of those Purple Outright scallops? Were the original brawl. It now there are values involved in this event because it is an airbrush free zone also. There are no catwalks at this thing. Like other lingerie having -clusive brand supporters from all walks of life. Their models are non models which is so key you got the US gold medal. Gymnast Aly Reisman you got actors busy Phillips and then he got a random co slash scientists. Gone yes she actually sold a company to Chevron. No big deal ever heard of that. This is different than the supermodel. Is You get a Victoria secret? Very Different Strategies. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over to mark. I'm sorry I mean at area. We are staring into the Victoria's secret vacuum right now. Knackers last month we told you how L. Brands the owner. Victoria's secret sold off. Victoria's secret to a private equity because it was struggling to connect with the new generation. The generation is focused on comfort over cleavage. We're digging inclusive events instead of winged lingerie shows on TV with catwalk. And that's why area is strategically positioned to take over. Victoria secret's market share. Think about seventy more airy stores are coming in twenty twenty according to American Eagle and that means two hundred and twenty total. Victoria's secret still has eleven hundred stores. That's five times as many as in the USA and Canada. So if your area looking at the situation you've got room to grow for our third and final story. General Motors is going. All in electric cars. Do Americans even want them? We gotTA talk about. What's going on with conferences these? Okay let's talk about the tech conferences. Those things are exotic high priced. Vip events you like. Go to San Jose you got zuckerberg dental and AI VR emoji. Bot that's GonNa Roll Your Life. General Motors has rich myth Western values. They just did a product unveil in the beautiful suburb of Warren Michigan. Everyone walks out with a tote bag a pen now. Gm announced this week. It's investing twenty billion dollars over the next five years to make ELECTRIC CADILLAC. Too Bad chevrolets. Self-driving cruise like botts folly. And then Hummers. Right yeah. Electric Hummer smackers were talking electric. Hummers now they also unveiled a new car battery that gets four hundred miles without a charge. Four hundred miles. What is that cure? Ranging perhaps attention wranglings that unless you're driving across country that's true. That could be a problem now. The goal though is to sell one million electric cars per year by two thousand twenty five old move General Motors. Here's the thing though. Snappers that Jack and I found fascinating. Americans don't really want electric cars right now if you look at the numbers. It's awkward but we had to call it out. There's not really a clear. Product market fit no last year in two thousand nineteen. Just two hundred and forty six thousand. Electric cars were sold in the united in that same period. Seventeen million with an M cars and toter or sold in the. Us That means simple. Math one point four percent of new car sold last year in America where electric tiny. That's like you can't even see that chart trendy the pie chart give me the magnifying glass. And we all know about half of those sales burn. Cali- classics knackers. If you're listening on like one oh one. Right now or two eighty. You know what's going down. Look to your left. Look to your right. Yeah you're surrounded by tractor trailers holding like eleven. Tesla's they're everywhere. You got a little buzz going by. It's another electric car or you're in one in Vermont. You don't see many Tesla's in California. You only see tests between the marina in San Francisco in Atherton down in Silicon Valley. They're more electric cars than people now. In Europe and China you have government regulations that are forcing both carmakers and like buyers to go electric in the meantime. You don't have the same thing in the you know you don't so check what's the takeaway for our buddies over at General Motors. If you build it. Will they come sneakers for the past decade? It's been like an awkward Middle School Dance. No one's making the first move on this costumers. Having demanded electric cars carmakers had made you better. Walk across this dancefloor buddy. Now Tesla has sold about ninety percent of the electric cars last year and we finally Volkswagen for General Motors and everybody else is finally investing in electric.

I think they were they were really just out to get revenge. Hey guys, welcome to the first degree the true crime podcast that you might end up on. My name is Jack Vanik. I'm sitting across from Lexus link ladder. And next Billy Johnson, two of my best DS. We are best friends now how fun is this really horse Billy to become best friend, but you like it toll the world. You liked tell them of the softer side, and how they can find you the softer side of the road is listening to this whole. The thing is that sad is like they can't see your is like. Yeah. To give him some subliminal messaging while recording. All right. But I'm gonna tell you guys what the politics fries. Fries. It's happy that appreciation day. I like that. Are there any? Well, you've got Batman. Of course, you've got considered the world's greatest detective and some people will argue that Trillo combs is the world's greatest detective. They have met in the comics before. But I do like that. But also, it is national cheese ball day, which is you. I'm a ball tree. You're totally issues. Pat, maybe like cheese to know your boy crash man crush. Jerry is a cheese all sees the biggest cheese. Here's a cheese ball, Jerry. Billy Jerry, where we're where is he?

I like the cheese balls the best. I would love a Cheetos cheese puffs. Ooh, not doesn't sound good. He wanted to go you snack on, oh, badly. I know really. We need we need some crunchy snacks are holding off on sax. Okay. So I'm keeping on the train of bad reviews. Today's about review. Comes from Alexandra N dot e, I'm just gonna really call these people out. Okay. This subject is it can be better. You do a podcast and tell me how easy it is. I don't know how hard it is to do a podcast, you know, much researcher, at least a week, the are episode just reading about it before we even dive into making it to our interview on the phone. Yeah. And then scheduling us. You know what is she Alexandra pros? The stories are different in has a great perspective with the guests that actually knew the victims or murderers. Yes cons most of these stories are taking too long to tell I keep yelling in the car. Get to the point already. I don't wanna hear your long opinions. One woman takes too many breaks between words. We know that just being Zaidi that would be me Alexis. I think the group needs to work on storytelling a bit because the story lines are broken apart too much of the pinions. I really wanna keep listening to the podcast. So that's why I'm providing feedback it has too much so much potential. But I think at a later date, okay? I have to say, I appreciate the feedback appreciate the feedback. However, our podcast is like a mix of storytelling mix of opinions mixed with banter mixed with, like a little bit of like Billy's experience and like my experience and my non experience. What you experience life in the weirdness that it is. But here's the thing, there are different types of pot. If you'd like to not as hot too. That is a scripted one. You can listen to scale you can listen to true crime garage. You can listen to case file. There are a lot of other podcasts that if you want the story or like a Wikipedia entry. That's those are. That's not our podcast. Right. That is not our podcast. You didn't even know what the story was until ten minutes ago. I did not know until ten minutes ago. So yes, relax. Rely on Billy for his opinion because he doesn't really know or doing, but he's an expert. Yes. And we're going to be like, hey, here's the crime. You're like. I know there's also this other Kremlin nineteen sixties is studied, religious studies, and I have a reference that way too. And paul. That's is that what? I'm principle other way. I solve a murder in Paul's and theology. And that. And that. Article once and I really, really the article and I like the impart for those of you who say we make fun of Billy, I've never seen Billy happier than when he's with a Philly thrives in this environment. And he knows what he's on. Bart four go. I'm no one. Even hold has got to his head to come back every week. I love getting trashed ice him down a peg in needs. It turns on. You're saying was up right now. So if you're into it anyways, should we get into work as like this? I think so. But it will say woman in not in the comment in the battery view. Yes. Breathes weird. I mean if you listen you've already heard me breathing is to stay alive. And if you're not on board then you want me to die, then you're. And I can't have that. But I really appreciate your criticism. Listen, Alexis can't die because the podcast would die with her. That is true seriously. If Alexis dawn. Building that if Alexis. Yeah, we probably would have a good podcast. We would not about crying. Would be about crime. We would just be making out the entire. Alexis league letter shouldn't be stopped, but could be what then you just haven't make out Jacksonville. That's a real ASA Marsha. So if that's what you guys rumbled for somebody coming. Honestly, would that not be the best ending to the first degree pot? If you tied and billion. I talked about it. T-shirt Alexis linkletter must be SOPs already happening. But, like ding Dong Alexis glitter. Glitters dead is a little morbid for me kind of like it, though. But nobody do it, please. Nobody do that. And we yes. I do not want to put the last chapter of my book being that. No. Then you'd have to solve my murder and. It could be a whole new book, by the way, chase doctors with me as out right now at Audubon dot com or Amazon, so yeah. Yeah. And that's when it comes out and print maybe by then, because MU Giacobbi shot in the buck. Do have a shadow on the book about it. But let's just get started. You've seen the shadow you haven't see the shadow now you told me about it. I told you I told you about the shot up, but you haven't seen it. What does that? It's good. Why don't you say tell everybody it's so she's she's. Power. Here's what I say. I say. To Alexis linkletter for helping me sore. In for Jack Vanik for keeping me grounded tie. It knocks him off that high horse. I'm like, you're not cool. Nobody cares. Exactly. So a lot of people care. But I like to pretend that nobody does. We let you belly. We're happy for you and everybody you'd better by book. Yes. I don't know if it's good yet because I haven't read it. But I'm dude can write though, so. All right. Let's for real against started. So today's case sorry Alexandra for ten minutes of the beginning. Yeah. Sorry for the battery said you didn't want. But this is who we are. This is awesome on. Right. And if not, there's like a million other like we love, please. Listen, but if you named three I just want you to be happy, if you're not into it, I want you to be happy, exactly. I do. So this case to day takes us to Dallas Fort Worth area, and it's the day after thanksgiving November twenty eighth twenty fourteen which is known in the retail world as to lack on Friday, the worst day, the air or the best, depending, if you're a thrifty shopper, so you guys today's first degree connection is Sarah, and she is going to tell us how her experience relating to our case today. Kind of unfolded from her perspective. I started working at American Eagle in October of twenty fourteen. I'm when I thirty going to graduate school. And I was looking for a job to kind of have to make some extra money on the side, and I was actually going to graduate school for forensic genetics on renting scientists and that actually shortly into working there. He was one of demand. And so she was one of the people that trained me all my managers were so nice. I remember actually being extremely kind and helpful and funny feed on could be with serious when she had to be because she was a manager. But he was definitely a fun person to be around. I remember our laugh to just definitely a funny funny person, and I really enjoyed learning from her and being able to work with her. So the fire department is called on the morning of November twenty eighth. Two thousand fourteen there summoned to a Fort Worth apartment complex at the forty seven hundred bucks Kenwright king ranch, and the person on the call. So they believed the apartment above his was on fire because his carbon monoxide detector was going nuts. The water was leaking from the ceiling and dripping into his apartment. But when the firefighters arrived, they find a small fire, and they're expected to find something, you know, they're, they're firefighters they're expecting to, to, to put out a fire, but what they find in the bedroom that apartment is the body of thirty one year old Ashley Harris. So I didn't hear anything until I believe it was done day, and I got up phone call from human resources. And so I answered the phone them Sunday. I remember because I was doing homework for school, and they got a phone call. And they said, we just wanted this is American Eagle human resources. And we just wanna let you know, that your manager actually heritz passed away this, he then and they may specify today, and I said, what happened, you know what could possibly happen? I just saw her, you know, a couple of days ago, and they just said that there was a fire in her apartment. That's all these holding. And so I don't know because I was going to graduate school for friends or what? But just something in my head that, that the there had to be some more to this story. And Sara's instincts were right. Because what be fire department and firefighters discovered when they entered ashes apartment and found her it was anything but a normal house fire casualty situation. Her feet and hands have been bound with duct tape our bodies face down on the floor at the foot of the bench. She has obvious trauma to her face her her head her neck or throat. Her body is partially burned, along with civil areas of the bedroom are burned, including her mattress, and there was also an empty bottle of rubbing alcohol, that was found near her body, and the firefighter said that it appeared that the fire was started using exceleron. And they figured out, you know, that this is probably somebody that was trying to start a fire for a murder scene, and we need to bring in the homicide. Detectives, right. So. Pilar Ramirez, who has a Fort Worth police crime scene investigator was one of the first arrive on the scene at around nine AM him and the other officers were trying to wrap their heads around what they were dealing with there was this fire on top of this gruesome scene of murder. It was a whole lot to take in at once and one of actually's neighbors till the police that he had heard a thump in screaming from the apartment of few hours earlier. And when the apartment was examined closely the identified what appeared to be bloodstains on the floor bed, Rilling and the door. They took swabs of all the stands, and they packed them to be sent to the crime lab for analysis. And I just want to make a little. No, it's very interesting. Like you have an apartment, she lived in department companies like you hear noises. And you don't think anything of that screens. Billy yelling sometimes. And it's interesting when you put things into perspective when something actually happens. And so I just really did a quick Google search and it was immediately on the news. It was already they're already knew stories about the fire and how he had been found and that it was being investigated as a homicide. And I kind of thought that it was a bit a third that they didn't tell me wouldn't come e you know, that there was an investigation pending regarding how she died. And, you know, they said grief counseling, available eight and everything. But I just feel like that. What seemed a bit a little more youthful Hemi had they, given you the full story over the phone, but I was a bet that said they didn't tell me that. And so I found out really from Google, and then when I finally got to work, whenever I went to work nuts, you know, talking with my other managers and, and thing they were saying what they had. Her. It was definitely unsettling to hear that, you know, my safety at work could have been compromised, but I really found out all of it from the internet from news articles. And I think that was even more unsettling to me event that, that that information wasn't really given to us in an official kind of way. I just got my hair dyed, and I would be dreading that time in a couple of weeks when my hair would start feeding and looking really dole, but I don't have to think to one of our sponsors living proof, which we freakin love the scientists living proof had found a way to make hair color last twice as long and look and feel healthier at the same time. It's called color care from living proof. And I freaking love it. So caller care is an innovative, three products system that starts with the shampoo and conditioner. They form an invisible shield that protects your color from washing out, and plus like all living proof products. They make your hair, look and feel healthier which protects your color from bathing. And when your color, eventually does start to fade simply use living proof super, cool color care, whipped glazes. They come in two different shades one for highlights and blondes one for darker shades, and redhead. So there's one for everybody and these awesome glazes have temporary dies.

So if you want to try them out, go to living proof dot com slash I and use promo code I to get a free sample of their ward winning dry shampoo with your purchase, again, that's living proof dot com slash I and use promo code I. The investigators observed what turned out to be Ashley's wallets on the bathroom counter, and strangely. It had two five dollar bills inside which immediately suggested to them that they're not dealing with a robbery here, because with such an overt obvious display of money, you'd think it was a criminal would just willy nilly take it. So. If robbery wasn't the motive here for this horrific crime than what was it? And. You know, they were investigating and trying to figure out what that was and meanwhile, the medical examiner's were able to come and tentatively identify Ashley Harris by her tattoos. So they were able to then determine that she had suffered blunt force trauma to her face and head, and trauma related to strangulation on her neck and throat, which likely was the cause of her death. And her throat was also slit, which is terrible, so immediately the detectives wanted to speak with everyone and Ashley's life because that's how they begin their investigations. They start close. They work their way outward. So obviously that included, I or family that our friends neighbours co workers, so on so forth. So it's at this point that they learned that Ashley was actually in an assistant manager at the American Eagle outfitters store at the Hulan mall, which was less than ten minutes from her apartment. So they start analyzing the scene the police, and they noticed that there's no forced entry. So that's the first or no forced entry. Ashley's next door neighbor and friend named Alexis Torres. She tells the police that Ashley often left her apartment or unlocked when friends were going to tend to her golden retriever named now. And Ashley also plan to work late on thanksgiving night, because black Friday Sam, the, the black Friday sale actually started on Thursday, because that's what we keep doing me. Keep moving the black Friday sale up and up Wednesday. And then then it's gonna happen in August or whatever. So Alexis had actually agreed to check on Ashley's dog for her. And she said, quote, I would kind of Catholic is that the door was unlocked by using my keys and pretended to unlock and lock her door. So she would kind of when she was going into the door she would like pretend that she was unlocking the door, and then open it. And then when she would close it to pretend that she was locked that, if anybody else exacting see it. Right. And she said she had planned to take breakfast to Ashley Friday morning, after a long work night, and was surprised when she didn't respond to her text message. Alexis decided to go to Ashley's apartment anyway, because they were good enough friends for that kind of thing. So they were just like all right. I'm just going to check respond, but I'm still going that fast which I would do to your job. Right. Thank you. So this explain why there was no four century, because the door was open. She's attackers were likely inside waiting for her when she got there or they snuck in and the ambassador when she got there. Right. So the police spoke to the neighbors who lived on either side and below Ashley when they questioned further the original neighbor, who called nine one one told the investigators that as far as the fire alarm, and Ashley's apartment was going off. He looked outside his window, and he saw lack two-door and windy g thirty five which fun fact is car. I had in high school really. But it's silver will unit Mercedes and we lived together like in two thousand eight how'd Infinity, g twenty and g thirty five in high school. I like in a rap song. Cool. All right. We're older. So there was this black Tudor INFINITI g thirty five leaving from the parking spot in front of Ashley's apartment with its lights off. He says it's car that he'd never seen before. So obviously, hate took note of that being there. The police then moved onto speaking with Ashley's team at American Eagle. The cops wanted to speak with them all of them to dig up info on who may have wanted to hurt her. But they also had to notify them that Ashley's keys had been stolen. This is important because Ashley had not only the keys to the store, but also the keys to the stores safe on her keychain, and it was the only thing that was saying, so glaring piece of evidence, right and the higher ups at American Eagle decided to change all the locks on at the store, and of course, of course, the attention is on the loss of their employees. But it just it seems like commonsense. If the only thing that's lost in stolen from this apartment during this homicide is the keys. What kind of weird malice shit are are we dealing with here? So. The police go to speak with the co workers, and with the higher ups, and all of that, in our kind of dealing with us in a learn from Ashley's co workers that Ashley had worked the night before, from five thirty pm November twenty seven to about three twelve AM the twenty eighth in preparation for the stores. Black Friday sales. We opened at six on thanksgiving evening. And so I work from six PM on thanksgiving into the night, so-, I working until I was supposed to work until three AM and Ashley was working that night as well. I think everybody has to work we needed kind of all hands on deck. And everyone was working and Ashley was the manager wants it people started to kind of Peter out in the middle of the night, and she actually let me leave early at two instead of three. So I believe that one that's all happened. She ended up giving after three thirty she got home at three twenty five AM and met with a friend who left her apartment around four forty a m this means that Ashley had been murdered sometime between four forty AM and seven thirty A M when the carbon monoxide detectors. Had gone off and her dancers neighbor's apartment and the water started coming through the ceiling. And that's again, where the when the, the firefighters came when after that call was made so word of what happens. What had happened to Ashley spread fifty of her friends more than fifty or friends, actually gathered outside of apartment. They have a vigil. They have a balloon release. They all cry the talk about Ashley. She was described as a friendly positive person. Love by many never talked elev-. Anybody? Her friend Christopher told the media that they all want to keep memory alive. She said, I think we should honor her and make sure the world knows what a great person she is. I just don't want what happened to her to go away, and they decorated the steps leading up to her apartment. They wrote messages on it on balloons and left flowers. Definitely in a lot of stock at birth. It was he with been nicest person. He you know, caring and funny, and I feel like I got a lot from my experiences being around her even though it would I such short on time, only about two months. And, you know, I feel like see had probably so much more to give to the world. And you know, she was only ever trying to do the right thing. But it was definitely it kind of was like a punch in the gut. It was a bit of a punch in the gut more than anything else. So the police are combing through every facet of Ashley's life. They're starting close and working their way outwards, like Lexus was saying before it didn't appear that Ashley had any enemies at all from the beginning. Everyone was talking about how wonderful she was and how good of a friend she was. And the police did learn something that caught their attention. When they were interviewing more of her co workers at American Eagle so on August twenty fourth three months prior to her death, the American Eagle that she was working at was burglarized. Ashley was the one that reported that one of the stores assistant managers as well as one of the stores employees we're could have been suspects in this burglary. The assistant manager was named Carter Savannah's surveying TASR. She was twenty seven years old. And the other employees was her boyfriend, Clarence David Mallory, and he went by David, and that's how we're going to refer to him in the story. Exactly. So apparently one night while Carter, we're gonna call them Carter and David from now harder. Full names. So one night while Carter was working enclosing the store of loan. She was seen on surveillance footage leaving whether it's intentional or accidentally leaving the back door of the store, unlocked in after the store closed a male in a hoodie is seen entering the store and going directly to the safe and unlocking it more than eighteen thousand dollars was stolen that night and this town occurred the night after a huge back to school sale that the store was having an in that case, the police suspected David used David Mallory, used it a safe key that Carter had stolen from another assistant manager while at work. And after the robbery, David who was an employee. He failed her. He never went back to work. He he missed the next three shifts and was fired. Which is the most obvious thing. You know, of course, you got that money not going back to work. Exactly, exactly. And so he never reported back to work. And of course, Ashleigh, who was another assistant manager there reported to the higher apps that she suspected that Carter in Clarence. They suspected that Carter and David were responsible and what's interesting is that actually really wanted to work for the stores loss prevention unit, like on a executives would have higher up level. And that's what she was working towards in. This is obviously the division that tries to stop theft, particularly internal theft. So she spent a lot of time reviewing this security video footage. And she's essentially the one that made the conclusion that David and Carter or the ones behind the theft. Ashley was killed. They had been killed in a terrible way. She was found in gagged and, and that they had that fire her apartment, one of my managers said that she had a feeling that she knew who killed her. And not it was probably the people that had previously stolen money from the store. Whispering wood basically that, you know, they had done money over the summer. I mean, I think it was eighteen thousand dollars. And I mean, not, not tempt chain, that's definitely still a significant amount of money, and that, they, I guess, were caught, and we're fired, and they weren't happy about that. But I had heard that learn David whatever his name is he, I think had lied to get a job at a different American Eagle after he was fired 'cause they were banned from being hired again. And I heard that he may have like his social security number or something to get hired at a different door after the fact. So I don't know the full details on that. But one of my managers said that she knew that he had done some shady stuff to try to get back in. So Carter suspended and she's later fired. And after the internal investigation into the theft at the stores. So she admits to these stores manager, that she had possibly left the back door unlocked, quote, she responded that she did not see what the big deal was. Because the law should be covered by insurance. Yeah. All right. So neither was charged nor arrested in the burglary, which is. You know that's one of the things that you see in retail stores. Okay. You know, we just want to be rid of it, but we don't get the authorities involved in it. And when you don't get the authorities involved in at something bad could happen. And this is what happens right here. One of the things where she's right? We're insurance didn't cover it. Yeah. You don't steal stuff. They couldn't think of their heads are like we can't prove it. It's a hoodie. It could have been anonymous honest mistake, leaving the door open. So they're like, whatever we're gonna fire. It's it's eighteen grand were pissed, but like might not have been worth the headache of, of pursuing more. And by the way, eighteen grand is a lot in the in the cough, for in cash in two thousand fourteen when so many people are using credit cards is pretty impressive for an American Eagle store, American Eagle jeans. I like them. Yeah. They stretch really likes to look at the three sixty stretch. They're awesome entries. Yeah. So how much we had American Eagle sponsoring this episode. Yeah. Exactly. We should have that. But there's they're not as a millionaires. Okay. So as the police were learning about all this, they wanted if this work situation, could possibly have anything to do with this brutal murder. And they weren't really sure because it seems like it would be. A pretty extreme escalation, yeah. To go from this theft to murder and but there was one detail about Carter, the author attention. They learned that Carter. Drove what a two door to door black and INFINITI g thirty five tight car, and they could find pictures of it on her Instagram because of course she posted up a her car. I just tell me. Oh, we'll still don't don't kill anybody. I mean don't kill right? Post pictures of your car and Instagram. Just kill anybody. Yeah. The only time you're allowed to post pictures of your car. If you drive a Maserati or above, unlike a like an Infinity. It's like okay, it's fine. I mean cool guys are really not getting the point here where it's don't kill by anybody. And then it's the idea of dose, whatever you want, but you don't like hell anybody? Because the police will. Use your Instagram to find you. Yeah. Literally. Yeah. Okay. So anyway, so the police were now curious enough, about Carter, and David to really look into them. They learn the David was only twenty one years old in Carter was twenty seven being a cougar. They ran the place on Carter's Infinity to get an address for the payer who lived together, and they started to conduct surveillance on the couple's apartment, two days after Ashley's murder, the police watch their apartment and saw them come home at around. Seven forty five in the morning, Carter and David then got into the block Infinity and drove to hole in mall where the American Eagle store where they used to work was located David dropped Carter off the malls, south entrance, and then drove around the parking lot and part away from the entrance Carter then entered the mall. That's when officers approached David in the parking lot in question why he was at the mall so early because they were there at around eighty m when the stores generally opened around ten and there's no reason for them to be there that early right in there. There's. Following them there under surveillance to these odd circumstances. So they already sort of. No. I mean, it's I think part of them wanted to not believe, like they couldn't possibly conducted a horrible murder over robbing American Eagle like maybe that's what we're dealing with. Yeah. So when David responded to the officers, he told them that he was waiting for his girlfriend who worked at Arup, stall store, inside that mall, which, of course, is not true. They ask David for his driver's license. He didn't have one on him. So the police can seize opportunities as an excuse to take him in, in arrest him for not having a driver's license. We're normally if you're normal person who's not committing a crime. I've been let go for that. So they generally will if you don't seem like a degenerate, which is really nice. So when they brought him in curiously he was wearing a buck ski-mask pushed up on his head. She is come on. They suspected that David was involved. So the police obtained a search warrant, and in the car, they found ski masks, a nine millimeter handgun a single walkie talkie individual guide to lock picking in the vehicle. Out of the movie visual guy to pick. Right. So police searched the mall but they couldn't find Carter later though. They did find Carter at their shared apartment David Clarke shared apartment, and officers said, they think that she walked home after going to the mall. She agreed to be taken to the homicide office for questioning meanwhile, though, the police also pull the surveillance from the mall to see what Carter was doing while she was there and in the footage, they could see that she was trying to enter the American Eagle store with a set of keys, presumably, these keys, you know. Our Ashley's, but who knows. But this was early enough. It was seven forty five. It was before any of his story, employs would have arrived, and as you know, American Eagle changed keys. So the keys did not in fact, work work, and this avalance, then showed her walking from the mall in the direction towards home, and in the ineffective, she's confused because David's gone, and he was supposed to be waiting outside. Yeah. Looking around where he went exactly. And she's like in her jammies, the whole thing's really weird. So another thing, though, is that she is worked at the store for a long time. This was right after a black Friday sale. She would have known that there would have been a huge amount of cash in a safe at this time. Yeah. So I'm black Friday and thanksgiving. The crowds are insane people just want to come in for the best field, and, you know, everybody wants to go shopping. And so we had, we would have ended up with a lot of cast in the face. And I'm sure that, since they had worked there previously. They knew that there was going to be a pretty happy amount of cash in the safe from all the styles that we were gonna make those two days.

But the police learned there was somewhere between forty thousand fifty thousand dollars in the store. Safe again, that's still boggles my mind in two thousand fourteen at that many people are using cash, I now whereas are, you know, at east coast, I feel like this long. It's not used because people use cash though, I love using love cow, Alexis uses too much as love cash. Always using cat. I, I do. Honestly, I love cash, too, but that's weird. Can you can't get your tax cuts on it? Well again points and then you I I just like she can't be traced, though, pecans faster, but I just love cash and then easier. I don't anyways. All right. So there's forty thousand fifty thousand dollars in cash in the store safe, and it's becoming clear that Carter she had worked for American Eagle for a bunch of years. And she would have been familiar with the amount of sales like anybody would be, you know, obviously the biggest sales would have been black Friday, the whole reason why it's called black Friday is because that you get into the black you were in the red. And then in the store was in the red which means that they were they were showing a loss. Black Friday is they get into the black would talk about your. Yeah. Do you think it was Gina really care about it? I thought it was like about the black parade, we didn't because we don't have a right. I wish it was. No. I honestly have never thought about it before or. I'm jealous of your knowledge, but also not because me. Seem right. Look at it, look it up. Okay. All right. So while the police question each of them. It seemed that Carter and David their, their stories were not matching up and remember that the police had been conducting surveillance on them for days. So they had all this footage of them. And it was all contradicting all the stories that they were telling them so they were obviously lying right? Carter denied being at the mall that morning and denied trying to enter the store even though when you look at this Valance tapes, they are fire. He's trying to get into this cry. No. All right. Well before I start my little thing Billy was right. So surprise, surprise. So another thing that the investigators covered was that surveillance for surveillance footage of Carter at Home Depot buying two shovels, a rope bungee cords a pair of gloves in a tarp on number twenty first two thousand fourteen which was a week before Ashley is founding to not, not good like you. I mean, we see this, how many times have we done? We pro this look the fourth or fifth time that we've had this. And then the things on the trunk, we'll just we'll guide of how to lock pick a car like disorder should on Amazon. Just as bad. Exists. But if you're might as well as all I'm saying they're that bad at it like have it delivered to your home. Then I don't know. Our new sponsor of, you know, you, you borrow the stuff I think, is what you do from. I don't know you by somebody else by it for you. I don't know what we're helping people commit crime. No. I sent you to do less. Goes back to how dumb are you that you're going to, like, okay anyways, so the Browns bullshit on our on Amazon? We wish it was on. So everything's obviously looking really bad for them. Everybody was floored that it seemed like they actually were plotting this murder and the whole thing seemed to be motivated motivated by money and the seem super horrific but it gets worse. So it turns out the both Carter and Davis. David previously worked at a different American Eagle at a store nearby in Abilene, Texas. This is actually the store they had met, and they had started dating. So David ended up being fired from that store as well after missing three straight shifts without contests, his or mandates his that we've talked about dumb and move on and after he was fired. He was transferred to the whole in mall store. We're actually had worked and that's where everything had taken. Place. So Carter had secretly hired David. She switched his first name with his middle name, and then also switched the two digit two digits of his social security. Number said he could be hired at the store without people realizing it was the dude who had been fired from the sister store weeks earlier. Right. And I wanted this I wanted to make that super clear. So Carter was the manager of Albanian store when she got transferred to the whole in store. She wanted her boyfriend come with her. So he had been fired because he didn't show up. So she is the one who manipulated. All these numbers. Right. And dark ship. But anyways, so that's when they became a couple, but another side note is that it's also do you really need to work with your boyfriend, like dude, also, it's against policy to do so, so I don't actually know why she switched from that album store to the whole in store. But I think it had something to do with it, and they were having a lot of tolerance for her bullshit. And like decided to just transfer her instead of firing her. Yeah. And yes, she come over in that, like over. Listen, I don't want to work with my boyfriend, but I'm going to hire him, enter different name, even though he's been fired dude, it was only unless it was like weeks later that this large robbery occurred that Ashley noticed in turn them in for. So anyways, the investigation is continuing. The text messages are coming to light and coming to the surface and the police are pulling all them and seeing what the hell these people are saying to each other. So it turns out that the second plot involved, these two planning to rob the Alba lean store that they both formerly worked at. So their phone traffic show that they were sticking out the store less than two weeks before Ashley was slain. And while they were there, they exchanged incriminating text messages. And they were able to prove this with, you know, GPS and all that shit improving where these text messages, were sent and received. So in their text messages on ten forty five pm on one day, David wrote to Carter, there's no way this place doesn't have a back door. Carter responded, I haven't seen the little blank manager. Come to the back, yet blank means expletive, you know, and these are obviously pulled from the court documents I don't know. So maybe I just missed him. I found their back door. It comes out really close to the only place with cameras. And then shortly before I guess, six PM next day, Carter told David that she'd found the backdoor, blah blah blah they were basically plotting to figure out how to rob this store and leader when she was in custody Carter told the police that she believed David was having a sexual relationship with another assistant manager at this all Boolean location, which prompted her to take pictures of these isn't managers car, and there were text proving that you plan to slash your tires retaliate towards this person. And they were essentially likely plotting to do to this manager, what they ended up doing to Ashley, which is she's insane. Yeah. I mean, the chances are like one in a million kind of people find each other. But we hear about it all the time out killer couples and I think it may be there with the manipulation there, maybe one of them convinced the other. But I feel like they go through with something this. This dark you have to you have to be kind of almost there already by yourself. You have to have that hatred and that willingness. And maybe that other person just kind of give you the extra push you need. But I definitely think that they both you know, probably would have done something like this on their own. Sorta super v they'd had enough. They got enough to make an arrest David's taken into custody at his at a private residence and Morello by the Marshall service. Without incident he's booked into Potter County jail transported to Fort Worth police homicide unit to be interviewed by detectives the police also suspect that Carter and David to be great flight risk, because they didn't have any ties to Fort Worth, but to actually Morello in Lubbock. So the Texas Department of motor vehicles record show that at least one vehicle each and Malary's and savannahs names, Qatar dated to Texas Department motive eagles. Texas Department of motivations records show that at least one vehicle in each of Carter. David's names are registered at addresses in Amarillo on December six. Carter and David cars are Carter Carter and gave it or the names. No, no, but Carter was. It has dollar on December six Carter is taken into custody by Tarrant county deputies and transported to the forth worth jail. So here's what police theorized, what happened. They believe that Carter and David the essentially stocked Ashley Harris. And they. Zeroed in on a time a window of time when they thought that you would be most most vulnerable, which was around the time of the black Friday. Rush. And then they either break into Ashley's apartment, and they head or they waited for her to get home. And then the ambushed her while she was sort of, you know, open the door or maybe they walked him when when she was asleep. Then they kill her. They take your keys and they're gonna take those keys and take them to the mercantile store and then robbed the store with a safe and as they're planning this murder slash robbery. There also plotting to do something similar to at the Abilene store. Some David and Carter are charged with capital murder. But for whatever reason the prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty against either of them. The prosecutor was appalled over the heinousness of the crime and was quoted saying, there are no good murders. But at least there are some that you can understand this was different at a minimum. This took at least a month of planning. They stocked. Ashley Harris like people stock a deer. I'm pretty sure that they stay broke in whether they had to actually visibly again or not because the door was open. I'm not sure. But I read that there was her friend Hudd gone over there with, like home with her. I guess, and that they went inside after the friends had left her friend has said to the police that she left around whatever time and they went in after that. But I think that might be the maybe that kind of what the docking like they stop a deer, quote, from that detective is in reference to that they really just they waited in the parking lot until she was alone. They want her apartment until her friend left, so they knew she was alone and not when they went in. And unsurprisingly as trouser approach the two of them started pointing fingers at each other when Carter got onto the standards to testify, she claimed that she was terrified of her co-defendant in live in boyfriend and claimed, but he was that she was raped when she did not do what he wanted. I mean, that was truly the most thing I think I've ever seen in my life. I. Like, yeah. It's the easiest defense is to blame the other person when there's more than one sucked back then there's more than one person, you know, being tried for calm. The easiest thing to point fingers at the other one. And, you know, I think that the you know. Little little girl crying courtroom. She thought that you'd get pity. And there's, there's no pity for the hat, when they're this is something that just oh group. Then. Yeah. So this is a new you see this kind of a lot. You either see these people turning on each other. You see them standing United, but this is particularly interesting. So she immediately starts to just point the finger at him that he was the aggressor that it was all his fault. And it was kind of a the prosecutors really believed that she was a mastermind. So this is kind of the stance her defense took. So this is her version of events. So I'm not gonna say it allegedly her version until I'm done. This is her version of events until we're done and we say, otherwise so. Carter said that she cooked when she was walking through the events of those couple of days, she said on thanksgiving, she cooked traditional thanksgiving dinner and David that day got drunk, then they watched movies smoked weed. And then she got sick. It was so daylight at that time, and then she claimed to know nothing of the slang, she was asleep the entire time in the apartment that she shared with David, and then she said at laid down. And when I woke up, it was dark and David was there are both hands on the clock where points at five and went to bed and went to sleep, then I was woken up by David, and he said, I needed to get ready to go to Klay burn, and he wanted me to pack, so then they went to clayborn, which is a neighboring town. They rented a motel room and this is November twenty eighth. But later that day David header drive to the hull and mall while he toyed with a nine millimeter, Glock, handgun that he held in his lap. So he was in the car with her during this drive. She said that he then put the gun, interface and try to make her steal money from the store David threaten her. Her parents and relatives if she did not do what she was told. So at this point, you know, when she didn't do what she was told they returned to their apartment where she claims David's friends, Rachel repeatedly. She claimed that the first time David pointed the gun at her, she flinched he laughed. He asked if I thought he would shoot me. I said, no, he said, you don't know me, but I know you many call that her grandmother's name and address her brother's address in the address for parents. He forced shotgun point to recount the day's events almost testing her like are the police if the police question you, you know what are you? What's your story like just testing her? But she didn't really know what happened. He then said, there are people who are meaner than me following you. In claim just her boyfriend threaten her throughout this entire process. Every car comes with share of stories. Maybe you have a ding in your bumper when you nervously picked up a first date, maybe got a luxury package after a big promotion. I dumped a lot of fro yo over my car today. So that's it's current story. But while you can't put a price tag on your stories now with truecar you can at least find out what your car is worth when it's time to sell or trade in just go to truecar simply enter your license plate, number, and watch, how your car's details pop right up, then you answer a few questions, like if there's navigation or moon roof watches, they bump up your value. If you have high mileage, you already knew that was going to cost you. But now you know how much it's dings your wallets? You can plant a head once you're finished. You can get a true cash offer sent in minutes, which you can take to a local certified dealer to cash out or trade in. So when you're ready to experience a better way to sell or trade in your car, check out truecar today and truecar offer is not available in all areas. Karner said that they went back to the human mall and David gave her what looked like the keys to American Eagle and said, change your clothes, and then she said, I'm not going into the mall, and he said, you don't understand this is a quote this from her, which is saying that he, he told her you understand, there's someone sitting outside your parents house, and if you don't go, I'm going to kill them, and I'm going to kill you. So he keeps threatening are over and over and over again. And he made her repeat the events of the day to, I guess, to get the story straight. And while she was talking, he seemed David seem calm, but when she paused, he would pick up the Glock, and then pointed to her again and say, you know, get the story straight. So they left the human mall. And after a while David headquartered drive to WalMart. And he said on the way to WalMart. He told me is what she said on the way to WalMart. He told me I need to get some dark sweats and some shoes that I could run it. Then he brought her to the mall to do the robbery before saying, yet you better come out alone or I'll kill everyone you love. So, of course, the prosecution is asking her. Why didn't you just run away if you're so scared and Carter's excuse is that she believed the that, that he was going to harm her family? Right. The store was crowded. She was seeing people everywhere that look threatening. So even if she had gone in the locks would have been changed and her key did not work. So when she returned to the car. She comes David Tucker back to their apartment and someone pushed her down the floor as she walked in she heard voices. She didn't recognize saying, I'll make her follow directions. I've already dug your grave and then someone took off her sweatpants, and raped her after the first raped she tried to crawl away, but before she could she was raped again, three more times before someone pulled her into the kitchen and told her to cover herself. She claimed the door opened and closed a couple of times, but she did not look up to see who are assailants were next morning. David Astor if she had a good night. Then David said you're going to go back and do it again. And then she said, I heard people talking who said they haven't dropped it yet. We're going to take her back and make her do it again. Again, this is her side of the offensive side. We're not saying this is true or not. Yeah. We're just saying what each side is saying. So the prosecutors, they had more text evidence of one texts that David sent to Carter. Were two sets of coordinates that led police to the shallow hole on a ranch in loaders. Which is this is about thirty five miles away from north Abilene, and the Fort Worth worth police detective who investigated the case. He said that he thought the, the whole was actually meant to be a grave for Ashley. I think that's the hardest thing at my head around is that they, they didn't just want from her. You know, if you need to, you know, they followed her they easily could have mug, her beat her up on her keys with my son, and, you know, maybe they wouldn't. I mean they probably don't have gotten caught. But maybe they wouldn't have gotten caught that way. But it how why did they find it? So necessary to actually tell her and from reading I read that there was they had dug a grave miles away. Like maybe they thought it was going to be easier to get her body out do that shallow grave that they dug and navy at the last minute. They decided that they were just going to set fire department, that shows some real funding, like they really truly must have hated her to have to, to want to go to that extent and. And you know, it's easy to steal money. But I think this was about much more than that. I think they were they were really just out to get bre vengeance for being fired, and they weren't even erected for that they didn't have it on their record. It didn't go anywhere. So they weren't in jail. They weren't really in any sort of trouble as I can getting fired from American Eagle. Carter and her defense team. They said there was another narrative for that. She said that the whole. That David had Doug for corridor. She should she refuse to cooperate. So what, what they were saying was that this is where I'm going to bury you, if you don't do what I'm telling you, which is interesting. I mean, I believe Carter's involved, but I'm just I always plays apples yet. Yeah. So remember, Carter said David had said, I've already dug your grave, whether this was all concocted in the in the defense room or whether this is real, you don't know. But it's interesting, you know, and she said, I was scared I was to read to talk, David apparently said, you're so stupid. You don't even know what I was planning. I texted you a picture of where I was going to bury you look at your phone, and apparently, there were actually was not only the coordinates, but also a picture of the grave on Carcassonne Jesus. But these I mean what I don't know is if these I mean he. This is a tricky like he texted, her look at your phone and kill you that. That's why you know, whenever we talking about something sketchy in my life. Everyone's like just call. Don't email? Leave a texting at all. No. That that's just call. It just call. Because you don't know inflection. You don't know. You don't know sarcasm. No, no. Not about that. No record. Oh, that's where you're going? Yeah, bugging your phone, but it's not they're not. But the thing is like there's unless you're on FBI like unless you're calling being recorded callings always the move mostly because he'd be like, hey, between me and you this, this is just for harmless, workshop, they're always, like, hey, just just call though because like then there's not like a track record your ass, covered. Yeah. But anyways. The prosecutor in this case, urged the jury not to buy into what Carter's defense, and what Carter was saying survey essentially believe that Carter was the not only involved but the mastermind entire plot. And they stated that Carter. Had a lot of lives for member and jurors had this important, but not terribly difficult decision to make in not. They need to know when they're being lied to and for quotes, for a person who is capable of beating someone to death, strangling them in their own home lying is not a big deal. And I'm not letting David off the hook. But imagine the horror someone is probably sitting on you wall. Someone else's taping up your hands, and then your ankles, they slash your throat. And then when you're finally dead. They set your place on fire. There are a lot of people at her apartment complex, which says a lot about the fence in this case. So he's saying, like, not only was it against her. They set it on fire. They were willing to sacrifice anyone in this building four dot goes beyond their selfishness, and he said, I will prosecute David. And obviously, this is that Carter's trial. I will prosecute David but he's not the first man to be manipulated by an older woman. And there's something to that. And I think eventually, I mean I don't think but eventually Carter was found guilty of her involvement. And she was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and may twenty sixteen. They had it all planned out there planners, you know, they, they had been whole, that's an murder for athletes planned out, for like I'm not. And though they knew what they were doing there was time or if one of them wanted out there were times to get out, there was times to get help and neither of them did any of that. They planned it the original security cameras. Be Dan's day. She had it all planned. She left the back door open. She stole the keys from somebody else, and they, they had it all planned out. They knew exactly what they were doing. And that was the case again with the black Friday murder. They knew what they were doing. They planned out carefully. They obviously didn't think of that anything they didn't think about the fact that he would be found so quickly and that they would. Notice that her kids were stolen. And so they, they clearly didn't think of everything, but they still hope the time plan the fall out, and that is just me a Mark of somebody who's manipulative and, and Cynthia Pathak, and I don't care about the effect. They have on anyone else. I do think that they're manipulative individuals that know how to work people. So David was also found guilty along with Carter and he was auto modestly sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. So he was twenty two and she was twenty eight they are never single lives. Done don't like how fall, she's his cries Ashley's family spoke to the media. And they said that our personal preference would have been that they both would have been executed would be executed, but the state made the decision to not pursue the death penalty. The overall lack of criminal history and Malary's age at the time the crime was committed contributed to that decision. I'm sure. So I was surprised though that it was a capital case where they did not seek the death penalty. I'm so I had to kind of look into why that was I am some of my professor that they had experience with cases like that. Because my professor had, you know, been are given and worked in the forensic community in Charles, and stuff, so acting, none of that was something that they had ever heard of to try to grasp that month that for myself and. Given the, the violence and the gruesome net of this crime. I really think that they should have gone for the death penalty. I am personally. I'm very back and forth on the death penalty. I learned a lot about both sides of the issue in some criminology classes that I took in college, and still, I really am never definitive on it. But in this case, I just feel like they, they were so sure that they caught the right people, and they treated her so horribly that I just feel like they don't deserve to live. And I think those interesting, I wanted to make sure about this out because I had a teacher, that even though I'm unindicted I had a teacher that said something in college that has really always stuck with me. And I think applies to the and she said. That I seen too much to be against the death penalty. And I think that's really kind of home in this case, because, you know, if I just reading about what they did to her is. Just so gut wrenching. I really couldn't believe that something like this happened to somebody that I know but absolutely solidified my desire to work in the friend appeal just having something like that, so close. I just knew that this is where I wanted to be what I wanted to do. I wanted to help you know, bring Justice to, to people, and their families, somebody that works in burns. Science, I just want people to know how hard it is, to get away with murder of someone that, you know, every move that you make nowadays is reported. You leave trace evidence everywhere you go. It's very difficult to to really get away with something nowadays. Yeah. So I mean, I think I think one of the most important things here is like we have to kind of examine this crime. And if you ways in that this is so great driven in these guys are so young. And it's like they got away with one little, they got away with one robbery, right? Got like thirsty. Yeah. To want Maureen want get to want to make it so much better than us. And then the fact that they started plotting this whole thing with their manager. Ashley, who's thirty one. I mean your whole life's before you that's just less stock so sad. And if you watch you can look at some of their trial coverage they will click children like they have no idea what they've done. I mean, there's literally like oftentimes I say, this is somebody like what I'm talking about somebody that was victim or talking about somebody. That was a purpose. I often say, like this is somebody that could work at like you'd see at the mall. I often say that this is literally normal them all. Yeah, this is. A story of just it's greed. It really comes down to greed, and what did they need the money so much for nothing? There. Infinity is there and I mean this girl Ashley was just beloved and suffered a horrible death. And I just can't imagine. No, it's just it's, it's one of those things where you don't obviously understand the consequences of what you're doing, and you're so like tunnel vision to in thinking that this is going to answer whatever problems that you have not only that Jack and I were talking about this. We were working earlier when we were not recording, and we're just like we cannot believe people kill people. It's mind blowing for any reason, though. That's my that's even over even over love even those essentially this, it's like there's no mile connection. I talk actually your but in, in my book, there's a lot of book about this. Let me out now. It's like when you think about how hard it is it just wake up in the morning. Right. And do all of your stuff, and then you look back at all the tests that you studied for and all the things that you saved for it other relationships. You try to build an all of that over and over and over and over again, and then somebody can come by just like that guy. Take it all the way that's just me the most. And that's why would I do? Yeah. Police out there. Listen, Jack ni- are with Billy in that we also don't kill people and don't want people to the one that we have is that. No. We're, I mean this is why we do this. It's like every episode brings us one step closer. Maybe somebody who cares. It is like should I was considering robbing the store? I'm going to not do that. Now. You hope so it's not it's never been worth it. It wouldn't have never been nothing. Illegal is worth it. It's really not don't break. The law arguing is work really hard as we've had, we have live a dignified life, if you know of a crime, tell somebody, yeah. Listen. Life is really hard. It's even harder. If you're committing crimes truly like it just makes everything harder than your anxiety ridden. Like do they know? Well, I get caught do you wanna live like that? I like that. You don't fit. I live like that. And I'm an honest person it's burden only I should carry told me get worse. He'll make it worse for yourself by doing it crime. Okay. Well, we're going to end it there, if you guys are connected to you happy library day, we're not done yet.

Zoom Video, Breakfast Wars

"Today's market is brought to you by. Td Ameritrade everything's customizable. These days you're trading platform can be too with thinker. Swim you can customize screeners charting stock forecasts and so much more so the market is always Taylor to you you can get started at td. Ameritrade DOT com slash think or swam? It's Thursday march fifth. Welcome to market full worried. I'm Chris Sale WITH ME IN STUDIO Mr Bill Barker. Thanks for being here next rabbinate. We've got earnings. We've got the latest on the breakfast. Wars start with zoom video fourth quarter revenue for zoom video grew seventy eight percent one of those interesting stock moves because initially the reaction on Wall Street was well. That was good. Wasn't we're looking for a little more? And I realized the stock has had a run up but Zoom video was down at the open. It's bounced back up. It's up about seven percent so far it is at the moment. Yeah but Wait wait a little bit. You'RE NOT. You're not closing the books on that. Are you right now? We still have several hours to the trading. Yeah that was a great quarter and it's not only been Another great quarter resume which is in what now more likely appears to be the early part or the middle part of a great growth story But it has. It's it's doing well At this very moment in time Which distinguishes it from a number of other companies and is not going to be one of the companies Reporting Hey you know this. We did last quarter but we need to temper expectations for the future. Just the opposite for zoom just the opposite and Similar to what Jason Moser and I were talking about the other day with Tele. Doc you know this is Eric Von. Ceo At zoom video being very very measured and not saying something like boy this corona virus holy cow. This good for our business. He would never say that you would not want him to say that but holy cow is this. Is this whole situation like he wouldn't say that. But your Sierra putting those words into his head you don't you don't think he's had those one I'm just I'm just saying that he's a smart guy. You're absolutely had those words in his head. He's also smart enough not to say them out loud on a conference call if we got him on on online right now say hey. Have you been thinking that? Then he would. He would be smart enough. Say No of course not we're measuring or we're managing our business for the long term and so I think what they are getting a lot of people signing up for free trials right now which ultimately have good chance of being upgraded into part of the more expensive parts of the system the paying and Subscription part and. I think that a lot of businesses are being forced to try either zoom or products like zoom the the competition and systems Cisco SYSTEMS has a competing video platform. Right yeah did we used to use that. Yeah and well. Then we switch to And and so I think a number of places are gonNA find Just is one of the dangers for airlines. Right now is not just that. They're losing current Current trips but as businesses find. Oh we can do many things just as well Over Zoom is sending people around and in fact It's a lot cheaper That is what I think. People buying zoom stock today are thinking. Because it's it's certainly not cheap on almost any metric that you would come up with nontraditional evaluations. No but I'm glad you mentioned the Airlines. Because you know for all the talk we've had about the cruise lines and those stocks in some cases down forty percent or more dayline stocks are getting hit today and. I think that I think you're absolutely right. I think a lot businesses are including ours are saying we're going to stop the travel for now and then we're going to reevaluate and I think a lot of them are going to when they reevaluate when we are clear of this crisis whether it's later in two thousand twenty or into two thousand twenty one my hunch is that A good chunk of businesses are not going to return to whatever levels? They were before in terms of air travel. Yeah and I think that In in future generations will be explaining. Oh Yeah we had these technologies to do teleconferencing business meetings. All the time We were kind of used to get on a plane going. And you know you. The personal thing Contact all which is true to a degree And the the degree may not be sufficient to justify as much of that expense as Most businesses are just attuned to putting into the budget and therefore spending and now If this if there's a prolonged trial and things go well from the perspective of getting those kinds of businesses those meetings don and saving money than I think you may reset some budget's out there to the detriment of airlines and to the benefit of zoom and other you know other competitors earlier when you referenced. Companies that are cautious with their guidance. That brings us to. Burlington stores because Burlington stores. They wrapped up the fiscal year. In a rock-solid way fourth quarter profits came in higher than expected but their guidance for two thousand twenty was somewhat cautious. Fourth quarter was really good though. Fourth quarter was really good. Year was good The past years have been good. This is a really. I think under the radar Superlative stock and has been since Coming back into the public markets of about. I WANNA say five six years ago. Something like that and Just up today in a tough day to have your stock go up or at least as as we talk right now. Things may be different. By the time you listen to this but Up three percent The market is not. And it's because it had. I think what was twentieth consecutive quarter in a row of of POSITIVE COMPS? And they're they are opening stores. They're not getting Destroyed by being in malls they're mostly not so They've got a business model which is not nearly as susceptible Both to the mall traffic problem and to online competition as Most of the other retailers are Burlington. Stores is maybe the best example of how discount retailing can work. You mentioned the same store sales in the fourth quarter. We're up nearly four percent. That's particularly strong when you consider for them. It's the holiday quarter and just all of the competition from retailers of every stripe set a put up nearly four percent comps in in Q. Four I thought was was pretty great and and yeah one more way that I think this is a smart business is. They're not crazy with their overall store footprint. So you know it's it's they're making this work but they're not than going out and saying. Oh Yeah we're going to ramp up our store count by twenty percent no but they are increasing their store. Count slowly and measured way Their margins are are holding up. They have Part of their press release noted that they had decreased inventory by twenty percent. Total inventory Which shows the speed with which things go in and out of their stores as compared to most other retailers They're just turning over merchandise much faster much more efficiently. They have a better distribution center network than most Retail stores and they are by being in the sort of discount space. They are used to working on narrower margins which are less susceptible to online competition Which has to deal with more shipping costs than Burlington does so they. They are not being priced out of business On the flip side American Eagles Fourth quarter well. I don't want to take them too bad. I mean it was. It was the fourth quarter for American. Eagle closed out in terms of overall sales a record year for the company and yet it's it's a reminder that fashion apparel is just such a tough business and from an investing standpoint. I think it's one of the least attractive. Not that there aren't periods of time. When American Eagle or for that matter you know other Abercrombie and Fitch and others of this category. They've had short stretches of time when you were thrilled to own the stock. But it's just that it's short stretches of time. These are not businesses that you can look Ansa. I'm just going to set it. And forget American Eagle. Just want to own this thing for the next ten years no and in fact if you had owned it for the last ten years your annual return would have been one percent so you would have trailed. You're making money trailed. The market by by about twelve percent a year fifteen years your returns would have been less than one percent annually so I like you When reading the the this report and looking at the numbers really was reminded more than anything else. If the the last lines of the Great Gatsby. I've never read the Great Cats be so you enlighten me. Well nor have I seen any of the movie versions you everything? No I tell you love DiCaprio. I mean he's an American treasure. Caprio come on so so I would have thought you would have seen it two or three times by now dow now just because I love to Capri as all right. Thinking people do doesn't mean. I see everything he does. Yeah well I could. I could quote the lines of Gatsby. Not off the top of my head back. Read them which would make for boring radio but it it Refers to the the the last line the very last line and the line before that But the last line is so. We beat on boats against the current borne back see-saw ceaselessly into the past and it's about thinking that the future is going to be brighter And and constantly being reminded that It is not an and will not be And and so thank YOU MR. Happy that well that is for American Eagle. I mean this is as we pointed out there have been essentially no returns over the last fifteen years for owning this stock And they are not making any more money than they were fifteen years ago sales. Move up a little bit But they are the margins keep eroding because of the competition that we discussed the retailers are up against both It not getting them all traffic that they need and not really Able to compete effectively against the online crowd. Something goes right In the case of American Eagle Right now that's eerie But that was up twenty six percent in sales or the quarter but that's not the majority of the business the main business. American Eagle outfitters is You know lost three percent over the quarter so yeah there's a little bit of hope that the decline of the strength of Victoria's secret has Given an opportunity for area to to expand and to grow but it you know that's as much as is going right. Everything else is going wrong. And the net outcome is the future Continues ALTHOUGH THEY POINT OUT? Oh you know the restructurings going well. The bottom line keeps sticking around right where it's been for about fifteen years and the restructuring may in fact be going well it's just not showing up in the results and they'll be another restructuring again you know if you just ignore the significant costs of restructuring then our prophets are about what they were last year. Please agree with us to ignore those costs. And then we're not really going backwards. Well that's that's a lot of IFS. That's the great thing about investing. Every individual investor gets to decide whether or not they want to agree with management and ignore input costs. Yeah I mean I think F Scott Fitzgerald nailed this one about one hundred years ago and they're still they're still looking for that green light. You think Arosh man you Mirage at American Eagle in mind when he wrote that more or less it was the American dream as American Eagle. But I mean they're they're playing off the American Dream Pretty Pretty Obviously there right. I guess ICONOGRAPHY yeah come on. I mean a little bit more recently. It's the line from Hunter S. Thompson. You know that's where the wave broken rolled back. I need to read some more I. It's been too long since I've read any hunter S. Thompson really. I mean I I read it all back when I was teens and twenties like everybody does. But here's my recommendation. Read fear and loathing on the campaign trail which he wrote about the nineteen seventy two presidential campaign and the reason you should read it is because holy cow. Does it hold up in terms of? He's writing about politics presidential politics in real time in one thousand nine hundred seventy two and the parallels to every presidential election Not all of them across the board but there are bunch that really hold up south. That's of all the things that he wrote. But if you're looking for something shorter something you can knock out in a twenty minutes or so the Kentucky. Derby is decadent and depraved. Which is a long article. He wrote for a Sporting magazine which no longer exists. But he wrote it about the Kentucky Derby and that's that was actually the for me that was the Gateway Drug Arrest Obsolete. It was the first thing of his head and I thought holy cow. What else is this guy? Didn't it didn't start out with your living now. There's something that they could Redo for like a Netflix series. Instead of the movie now you think yeah I would think there are a bunch of things of his. You could redo since the mood. Movie adaptations largely haven't worked. No no and I think that the CGI is better now to which would serve the Stegman You know drawings better absolutely absolutely we take a break from literary daily to say a quick thanks to td Ameritrade.

Our email addresses mark. Full dot com great email from Cordell Zilenski. Who writes loved the show one of the best parts of my day. Thank you Cordell appreciate it. I did some boots on the ground. Research of Wendy's new breakfast. I'll just add baron. Technically a bunch of people have written in about Wendy's new breakfast saying essentially. Are you going to talk about this? So here we are. He writes sacrificing my daily caloric intake twice on Tuesday. I had the Maple Chicken Bacon Croissant on Wednesday. I had the breakfast Bacon eater. I wasn't a huge fan of the syrup. Used in the former but the chicken bacon was impeccable regarding the ladder the mail was too much for eight and it was the size of a burger not a biscuit but the bun was good overall. It's comparable to other fast food breakfast. Offerings the best part was not the sandwiches but the season potatoes. And the frosty Chino. They definitely underplayed these. If you had to make an investment choice based only on the taste of fast food breakfast which company do you go with? I love this question. I'll also point out that it's interesting to me. That he played up the The coffee beverage there. The Frosty Chino. And it'll be interesting to see the to what extent. Wendy's new push into breakfast in. This way affects their earnings but one of the big drivers for McDonald's for years was their coffee and not just a coffee which is good coffee. But the coffee drinks yeah And what what are we going with here? The relative coffees or which company we would bet on no solely on the breakfast. The taste of breakfast a taste of the of the fast food breakfast. What are you going with for me? It's McDonald's because you know I also liked. The cordell was sacrificing his daily caloric intake. Because if you're GONNA do fast food breakfast you are absolutely saying well. I'm going to knock out most of my daily caloric intake what this one meal here. Were going strictly by taste fast food breakfast. You still got you still got to go with Duncan to win Because you can do that. There's the sugar to rest of the food. ratio is higher at Dunkin. That's true I e. She's there for it. Wins the taste got test if we're excluding all other considerations and they've got the new bacon thing going the it's just here here's Bacon. Here's a bag. We'RE NOT WE'RE NOT MESSING AROUND WITH I O. It's not like a bacon sprinkled on your donuts. No it's a bag of Bacon so I mean if there's one thing that tastes better than sugar it's bacon that's true and I could see you sort of mixing you go and you say I'll have the bag of Bacon. I'll have a couple of maple doughnuts of go from there. But I mean that's you and that's fine like you're buying shares of Dunkin on that for me to McDonald's I'm representing right-thinking people represented. I'm just river sending my taste buds. Because that was the question. Well so I'm a big fan of the McDonald's hashbrowns which are great. And they are leaning heavily on salt. One of the great competitor's to sugar get down to taste so a McDonald's takes a back seat to no one in its use of salt. I think that's true. Yeah Morton's maybe right steakhouse you mean like the the actual actual Shaker of salt. Yeah Yeah No. They're they're they're in the front seat there in the front seat. They're driving the bus. That's that's where McDonald's is getting their salt probably and went. Wendy's is playing with salt. They're playing with sugar. They'RE GONNA they're gonNA do well because when you add breakfast too you know your restaurant in an efficient way. Then you're just adding sales really taking away from anything so cornell's email had me spend a couple of minutes on Wendy's site to look at. What are the things that they're offering and the the breakfast Bacon Egg Bacon Eater? That's a burger which is an interesting choice to me. That Wendy's is saying yeah. We're going to do breakfast. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA have potatoes we're going to have to but we're we're also offering burgers. That's Okay I. I don't know that I necessarily want that. I'm I'm looking more for eggs and Bacon in my breakfast sandwich. I'm not looking for ground beef but okay. It's nice that you're offering it and who knows maybe that's going to be the big driver. Some people are just looking for permission to eat a Burger for breakfast and Wendy's is now giving it to them. Think of all the people. I just wish I could start with a burger. You know. That's gotTa bets. GotTa cover a couple of million people out there. It's there on the menu. Exactly now Wendy's mcdonagh. No no can't give you a Burger until ten thirty Wendy's like what are you doing? We're that Burger at. That should be their whole ad campaign. It's just like unlike McDonald's and Burger King. We believe in you believe you should have whatever you want. It's not just all day breakfast all day Burgers and well Wendy's runs a pretty pretty sharp Twitter follow them on twitter. I don't follow the I've I've every once in a while it pops up so Whoever's doing their social media's doing a good job they're doing a lot of attack They're they're on. They're playing offense all the time I think. If you're Wendy's I think if you're anyone but McDonald's you have to play offense all the time because you're just trying to catch up to McDonald's aren't you. In store count in in size in execution unless talking about chicken sandwiches. Everyone's playing catch up to McDonald's in terms of the bottom line. Certainly Bill Barker Texture. Being here thank you as always people in the program may have interest in the stocks. They talk about the Motley.

It's hard to believe that this year is almost over and it's even more mind-blowing that were also closing out decade. We can all agree that it's been quite the banner year for advancements and the ethical and sustainable lifestyle movement whether we're talking about the rise of Marie Condo or the banning of plastic straws. There's also been some setbacks however like in the fight against climate change and more information than ever is coming to light about issues like recycling cycling fast fashion more as a matter of fact we have so much information to share with you. That came out over this past year that we're making this a a two part episode and will release part two next week Lisa and I invited all in wicker to weigh in on the top. Ethical and sustainable stories of twenty nine eighteen alongside us. Alden is an investigative journalist ethical fashion expert and founder of EKO DOT COM. One of the top sources Her indepth reporting on everything eco-friendly. Alden is also one of our brightly Diko partners and has written a piece or too far platform which you can watch for more to happen soon. And we're thrilled to have her years of expertise on our side as we wade through the top themes of twenty nineteen before we get into the podcast. We also want to highlight a question from you. Our community one of our good together listeners. Courtney called in and asked us to question about recycling that. I'm pretty sure everyone wants to know the answer to let's hear from fourteen now. Hi this says Courtney. I am currently living in Denver Colorado and I just started listening to the PODCAST I was wondering if you guys have encountered any research on the idea of bringing refillable refillable containers Two stores for shampoo and conditioner and Lotion and dish soap. Any plastic container are normally Some residue left on the inside of the container and things that are not only re purposed I I was thinking about this recently. Like in the similar to agree on how you can take that to Like a bar burry not or a bit. You know some grocery stores habit or you go and you fill up and you pay by the ounce and you can bring that home and then it's your container -tainer that you can go back and refill it. Hearing from Courtney is that she likes to talk briefly about what happens with recyclable containers that that she buys potentially at Costco full of shampoo. Yeah all right hips so for one thing. I want to preface. The brief conversation about is that as consumers you know we are asking a lot from consumers to be bringing containers To the store or shipping them back or refilling them themselves so I am And as we get more into this enter the topic maybe in future episodes. Because you know there's a lot of research needs to accede to see brands can a making it as easy as possible for consumers to to go through this process of using either glass containers medal not using plastic Maybe not oh having to refill it themselves you know because we want ultimately we want as many people to do it has to be super super easy. We're not there yet but Let's see what options we do have. Yeah it's hard. I mean you know one thing that will talk about more in in this episode. Is that unfortunately less less than ten percent of the plastic that we try to recycle gets recycled here in the US which was a huge huge. Bummer I'm so what the only the main temp we we have is to just cut down the amount of plastic that you use and when you think about going to costco and buying big things of shampoo in bulk that's actually not a terrible idea. The bigger container that you can use the better because that cuts down on the amount of small containers that you'd use so by that giant container if you can. I'm you know if if there's not like a glass or metal option which unfortunately there's oftentimes not on and then once you're done with that big ball of shampoo try and reused. We stack container for other purposes around your house right exactly. Yeah so what I usually do. This is pretty simple. I think so you know. Obviously all of us have regular a small containers for shampoos dishwashing liquid. And then when I have time or John do go to Costco by this large container and just simply obviously you can use the largest containing home so just use the smaller regional container and keep refilling into with You know ball cost stuff absolutely and then if you you if you can buy from brands that do offer different solutions to this problem. So there's a few brands that we feature on the platform like Grove or public goods. Is that offer. These pouches that you can order see you order a glass container from them and then they'll send you large pouches filled with dishwasher soap or shampoo who etc.. I'm I'm not one hundred percent. Sure how recyclable. The pouches are but it kind of goes back to the point that we made earlier around buying as big of containers you can and then the final tip we have before we get into. The next episode is go to stores. If you're really passionate about this go to stores offer refill stations so like this zero waste shop Here in San Francisco we have a store called Rainbow. Grocery that offers at So Yeah I've never done that myself. But there are more and more shops popping topping out that offer those solutions. Something that Courtney mentioned is that you know. It's a very similar like taking your garage to a brewery right or taking your milk bottle. The glass milk unbuttoned to your Milkman. Or Your Milkman. Refilling it and it's something we comes. This topic comes through a lot of our podcast episode. Is it something we actually going back to. What has been done before by our previous generations? Right it was natural to be buying milk from your Milkman. In using the glass container refilling maybe not natural to be refilling your shambaugh but all of the shampoo and beauty and cleaning products were natural at some point So a lot of times we're basically going back to what has been done before. Absolutely all right and if you're interested in having US answer a question you have about ethical and sustainable living you can ask us one of two ways. The first way is to head over to brightly dot edu slash podcast. Scroll down and leave us a quick voice message like Courtney just did or you can also send us an e mail to hello at brightly GEICO and will read it out loud. We love to get these questions. And we're happy to get to the bottom of things we can all do to help. Make the world a better place and with that. Let's go ahead and jump into today's episode aright while we are thrilled to be kicking off the year in review. New podcast episode. We've got myself Laura here alongside Liza and olden wicker of Eko Colt So all I I wonder if you could just say hey let the audience know a little bit more about yourself. Sure thank you so much for having me So I am a sustainable fashion journalist and expert. I am the founder of club DOT COM which I just checked it. Got One point. Three million million visitors so far In two thousand nineteen and I also land if they use it you bake stated had it about it and I also feel a lot so you'll see me Most often at Both business and The goods by vox but but I always have other things in the works I will write about sustainable and ethical fashion for anyone who will take and yeah about ended up. Yeah that's awesome and one of the reasons we wanted to have all done on the show is she's got just such a long history of really digging deep and asking the hard questions relating to a lot of the topics that come up in the industry and I think You know all the questions were constantly getting from our community of all you know. They're they definitely am sorry. Revolve around greenwashing in and a lot of misinformation out bear so we really appreciate all then's willingness to be true journalist. Thank you so much. Yeah and I'm super excited to welcome. Oh come out and on our broadcast. All dental participated together live. How first and only episode for now that has been recording recorded live at the event that we hosted in October in San Francisco? But the this'll be a very loaded episode and I think L. Dennis Broiler do best person to To be the one discussing and digging deeper into details. Yeah so we've got a lot to cover so let's go ahead and get started started And so the way we're going to run this as as we know. Twenty nineteen was a banner year for the ethical and sustainable fashion Ashen and lifestyle movement Obviously there were a lot of You know current events that were happening that we're helping to move the conversation forward. There are also a lot of things things happening on the planet that you could definitely see us setbacks in terms of what's going on with the climate etc so what we WanNa do is kind of balanced these different themes that we've come up with with positives positive sides of things and negative sides of things so hopefully this is entertaining informative ominous something Well You know produce conversation starters for you as you go out and you chat with your family's I'm the first topic. We wanted to talk a little bit about wise is You know on a positive side of things we wanted to talk about all of the winds for less waste so. There's a few things to unpack here on wine. Wine would be all of the straw bands which I know that there was a reason. They're kind of controversy. All's in some areas I don't know but overall oh I think people really excited about the reduction of plastic straws on plastic bags worldwide. Like did you guys happen to see chatter on that and interwebs. It's such. It seems like a tiny thing. Reno banning straws but I think it's got the VR during the tension that it deserved. Yeah it was. It was impossible to miss it and I did see some of the backlash and what the backlash I I saw around it revolved around two points. One is that Straw's in number in certain areas like if you're in the republic you'll see a lot of them right there's tons of beside and so they seem like they're a huge thing And then also you know it was picked off by that one video It's been viewed millions of times. The Sea Turtle with a Straw is now but in the larger scheme of things STRAS actually make up. They're very very little of plastic. Waste and if we were going after the most impactful plastic it might actually be go fishing. That's that we would go after or nurdles which are like little plastic pellets. That they've make into positive products that keep on getting like accidentally dumped overboard. Ah at the ocean So there's a lot of things that we could be going after but for some reason straws really broke out of the pack. And I think it's just because it's very it's it's very easy to understand and something that makes people feel empowered About the plastic problem. Yeah it's something that people run into every day Camino people very much using straws in their in their drinks out. I feel like it is one of those small steps that people felt like they could use to make a big difference. The the next thing I wanted to talk about on the less waste train on is the rise of Marie Condo so she had a huge year with her Netflix Netflix. Show coming out and becoming more of a part of the cultural conversation and You Know I. We've talked about rekondo before on on this podcast. I think her method of making sure people are being very conscious about what they're purchasing hopefully purchasing last things and of course sparking perking joy Whatever that really means with items in your house is a really interesting You know way for people to think about making a difference. It's and it's probably presented in a way that was not people haven't thought about pre exactly. I think you're right Laura because I was just going to say like all of us. The ethical brands Iran and members of the new ability movement. We can take example from Ari condo because she didn't even try to portrayed as she's like fighting thing for environment or she is encouraging us to shop. Last who's like get rid of the stop doesn't bring you joy it's the perfect way to put it and before I give 'em Out on the chance to talk about it. You know. Just the documentary when it came out as threat up its own line three store so basically they have this service that you can request clean out kid to get rid of your clothes that you don't want don't want anymore just because of Murray condos documentary threat up so a fifty percent increase in sidetrack traffic junior when the documentary came out so it was a definite Tesla marketing success and a helped woman quite a lot I think well did you see that about two weeks ago. She launched an online wine store. Where you yes it he loved? Yes we were just talking about that before. We started recording. I think she's got that yet. That's like twenty dollars or something I don't I don't know so yeah I mean what what do you find particularly. Do you find that problematic as well all then or like what do you what do you think about it. I mean don't hate the player. He's the game right right. I think that she said she did it because people are asking her what they should buy and so she felt like she needed to tell people. And if she's is gonNA keep telling people why not just put up. I think where it really bothers me is what it says about. It bothers me that he got that question. Then and I get that question a lot and sometimes I answer it but most of the time and you've seen this before I will stop the person and I'll say what if it's not as out buying eyeing the right thing but it's about just not buying it in the first place and it's unfortunate that she's never come out and said at that and now she's saying like yeah. You just buy the rice thing then you know if everything you own that you bought brings you joy. I like. That's going to solve the problem when I know we've all had a thing where we thought something brought us joy and we were wrong. Exactly and I I totally agree with that and I think You know we get this question a lot with brightly to obviously like our our mission is to make sure people are empowered to be conscious consumers consumers in a variety of ways and one of those ways is we do recommend brands and products for people to purchase. But I think one of the things we often try and get across is is yes the really. The most tangible thing to do is to not buy new things And so you know that I think is just such an well. It's an easily said the piece of advice I wouldn't say it's an easy piece of advice to follow and so especially like in the holiday timeframe when people really feel the need to purchase new things. UH-HUH I think there is power in you know purchasing the right thing if you need to buy something which I know of course is is You know some of the work you've done with Ego Kothe. Both Echo Foltz So the last thing on the wastes bucket. I want to talk about was how some new companies and brands are popping up. Better creating ating items from new recycled materials so we lease an Iot big textile nerds. No you are to all then And I think one of the interesting interesting things that we saw this year were a bunch of different materials coming up so of course. There's been innovations in reusing recycled plastic. which it is not a perfect solution to the plastic problem that we have? But it's like one way to potentially help offset some of the plastic waste that we have There's also oh been Of course this wasn't really new to twenty nineteen but always You know we're seeing new innovations with like fruit ways so there's like Pena Tax On I know someone's trying to make fabric out of mushrooms and so yeah I think The more innovation we can see from startups who are tackling. These problems comes from a really deep tack. Perspective is just really key on and all that I wondered if there was another Any type of innovation that so you feel like really like stood out. Yeah absolutely I think the one of the ones that I'm most excited about Is a thrill out of Finland It's called infinitive fiber. And what it is is they can take over a lot of different types of plant material but they can take Cotton and they can Recycle it into a cotton like fibre. So as a consumer you would never never be able to see the difference between regular cotton and this Cotton made from recycled cotton. Because right now if you physically recycle countries chop It it degrades the quality of the cotton but this is like end and and it's actually carbon negative which is very exciting? So that's what innovation and I'm I'm really really about. That's awesome so the next bucket is a negative spin on what we were just talking talking about. So we'RE GONNA remember we're trying to positive and negative so one negative. He's of information or bucket. That Kinda came out in two thousand nineteen. Was this this really really realization. Not We as consumers have been pretty much lie to I mean yeah. We've been lied to by The powers-that-be powers-that-be around recycling so we've all grown up You know being really excited about recycling. I think the seventies is when you know when we as consumers here on the in the states at least got excited about recycling the issue and actually the New York Times put out a really interesting video on this Awo will link to the show notes that really summarizes the issue but the issue is like less than ten percent of the ways that we are sending to recycling plants. So that means sounds like after you've taken the time to put something in a recycling bins. I'm not talking about all the other stuff that ends up. Just kind of in your trash can but of that stuff you have sent to. The the recycling plant less than ten percent of that is actually getting recycled and You know we used to back in the day. We used to send recycling Glean You know bits and pieces overseas like over to China over to play parts of Africa excetera and those places of actually now said. We don't want your waste anymore. We can't handle it so unfortunately we're now starting to see. Local whole counties and local governments in the states actually suspend their recycling programs. So that's a bummer. uh-huh great coming for a really long time though. I mean it's interesting because in Europe they treat waste MM disposal pro like respectful disposal as a public good and I I'm not do whereas I don't think a lot of people know but in the United States we treat it as a private havoc sector thing so what we do is three aren't going cities pay a lot of money to physically collecting. But then they try to make that money money back by selling the way to various outfit to recycle it and then try to sell it onwards and unfortunately we're producing so much swayed that it's worth it. Nobody wants it. And so that's that's the problem and I think we're going to fix this problem. We're going to have to fundamentally rethink the way we think of Responsible Waste Reduction and recycling. Yeah absolutely it's both the attacking the system that we use to recycle things is to your point and it's also as consumers thinking about how can we create less plastic waste And you know there's all sorts of All sorts of pieces there but Liza you want to get. I started with another. Yeah the next one. Let's do positive on this time and this has been all over the news just recently We will we're talking by the climate strike and of course Greta Thunberg who just one times person of the year and very deservedly so so Greta is a fifteen year old from Sweden who are literally started the climate strike movement right which is also known as school start for climate of Friday's requirement which is basically school children It's an international movement and they take time off from class to participate in demonstrations to demand action to provide To prevent further global warming arming. And I was just wondering to myself as like you know. Obviously there's a lot of adults who have been doing that but you need leg. This young generation A little the telling us to take action because they're the ones who inherited this planet and I think this is probably why it got such variety. Wow what's Your take on that and I think it's been really interesting because she's INCR- Greenwich incredibly compelling I also met other her or I talked to other climate activists and fear that are from island nation which are really going to suffer the most low-lying island nations and And there's been some chatter around why these people that are not from Sweden or the global of north are getting ignored in this conversation. which is a really long topic to cover? But I think that Anything that can be done to move people towards sticking Actual action in a conservative way for climate mitigation and and Trying to fix this problem. Investment candidate good thing. Absolutely hopefully. And you're you're absolutely right too. Because Global South is the one at the Congress and the Global Salads will be the one that will be heard them most by climate unfortunately unfortunately by the I agree with you anyway we can move the conversation Action Star Star getting taking actions super important and it's very not critical at this point. Laura you also wanted to talk about a Gen Z.. efforts American Eagle getting all forgiving Tuesday. Okay that's interesting. Yeah well you know I mean the Gen's e of which none of us are on this call unfortunately no where we would all be classified. Mostly as millennials are elderly nails but Yeah Gen Z.. Is really rising up to meet. The the just urgency needs of just overall education and action as it relates to climate change. So of course. Greta is a great example. I think she's technically Gen Z.. Not hundred percent but she at least embodies their spirit But you know we've seen a variety of reports come out by some of these consulting firms that are mentioning that Gen Z.. Consumers are very much willing to pay more for ethical and sustainable made products which is great And they're also pushing on brands. Rans that have traditionally sat with that age demographic to do better and so one of those examples American Eagle well so I know we can all remember going shopping at American Eagle when we were in junior high etc and I think just because of the demand of their customers American Eagle actually just dead a campaign to put on put. QR codes and t-shirts on to help people donate to their favorite causes is and they did that in. Honor of giving Tuesday so that's just one example agent Adam the HMO always in hot water because of their role in fast fashion. which will we'll talk more about fast fashion in a while but you know that the CEO of H.? And M. has said that he's worried about About Gen Gen Z.. On because he thinks it's going to impact his bottom line and honestly think producer should be worried and as we would say in Texas exa should be quaking in their boots. They really should. They should be well. That's interesting because I I think to Transit Gen Z. And and it's weird because it's like people. I've never talked about him at the same time. But yeah you have them being activists but you also have them Contributing to the rise of brands like Boohoo. Who and misguided so you have on the one hand you have Some talking about inclusivity. But sometimes I've I've heard the term inclusivity be turned against ethical and sustainable brands but your brands inclusive because it's out of my budget And so that's attention. That's the heart of east and unconscious fashion movement. which is should everyone have access to this stuff? And if they don't why not and It's something that I think is gonNA come up again and again. Yeah absolutely. I think that's a great point around price price consciousness of this of a visionary everyone on and Yeah I mean Mike. What Fashion Nova like all this type of like throwaway fashion? I think is always going to be something that People who are like focused on being trend for word are always going to be probably the ones thinking more about like They should be thinking about fashion anyway. so Leeza is that is that about what we wanted to chat about with the wind again unless the part about the climate for this episode of Year overview as you know Why is the person of the year? Why school children are coming out and taking time away from classes is because of the climate emergency right? I noticed you Laura you. Climate emergency is the word of two thousand Nineteen Aucoin Aucoin by Oxford Dictionary. Yeah I mean I. I was just again with lease. I like to do a lot of research before these episodes and I was just trying to find a few interesting tidbits. The bits and yeah Oxford dictionaries came out and said climate emergency is the year Is the word of the year in Twenty nineteen which is is really interesting. I think. Obviously there's been quite a few natural disasters that have been coming up You know particularly drought. Some things that we can you know very much point to Climate Change being the cause of I think you know we Liza Anne I live up here in Northern California where there were some really really bad fires On and we were personally affected by like the smoke but that was where we are affected. that's where our Inconvenient stopped. Obviously there were many. There's there's so many people who are unfortunately lost their homes lost their livelihoods and of course you can also think about what's been happening in Australia. The past few months around there Bushfires Allen you know the impact on Koalas so You know I I do think there's of course and I think all the news probably very familiar this in more than willing to talk about it but I know there was also a consortium of scientists who got together and said hey guess what world we are really aww tipping point with with climate change. And we've got to do something about it and it was a very bleak report To be honest so yeah it was a lot to take in. Yeah it was pretty terrifying. I mean every day so you new headlines about how Methane has been released from the Arctic Sea Ice Shelf falling into the Russian And we're going to start down this path towards feedback loop so more ice melts more methane release climate warms up more more I and I've also seen that. Apparently we've been predicting this incredibly accurately for the last thirty and the climate models have been accurate the only thing that the climate model dot com is that they actually thought we might be releasing more carbon and so but but they've been accurate. We know we've known what's going to happen for a really long time. Yeah and I love the that use were terrifying. 'cause it's absolutely the One I would use to describe it as well and especially the the fact that we have been accurate at predicting this is such a key thing virtuous does like stop and think about because 'cause I think one of the ways that we have been allowed to continue on this path of You know of ruining the earth basically has been. There's a trend friend to try and discredit the way that scientists do models or data in general. I think we everybody's all run into somebody at some point in your life. That's that's like well we could slice the data five-way is and don't try and be fooled by someone who is telling you figures in the wrong way and yeah that's true. People people do manipulate numbers to tell specific stories. We should always be thinking Critically about you know things that are presented to us that being said They were right. The scientists were right and I think we need to think more about giving voice to these types of Whistle blowers hours on. That are really trying to help nature. So yeah I mean it. It's it's a bummer cavalier by saying that on but it absolutely is On disheartening to hear that information Yeah Yeah I can't even say much more about it. Yeah but you know we have copen Greta in the next generation Asian. That's keeping positive and actually doing something about it. You know I think the right path Alden Liza and I will be back next week back when we released the second part of this episode where we discuss even more ethical and sustainable news trends that we saw in twenty one thousand nine hundred sir.

was drinking eight to ten energy drinks per day Oh and finally as heart which is like grip home a full blockage in one artery other avenue just kept beating them small women over and over again to be a villain on purpose yes and then he ends up marrying the first girl that he ever wrestled so that was kind of interesting all right eight attendance as a lot eight to ten a day off for many days all four in one day a lot I will have a five hour energy sometimes but of humor and I was like this so so bad true story though overall go ahead I had there was two scenes that all like kind and can I am I allowed to spoiler okay he got cancer and I and he obviously had a funeral but like nobody things and then of course the end where he he or somebody else come back and sings I will survive reference

loved one size if they're overweight let the person take the lead they have to bring up the conversation I have never in my history of working in this area heard in your friend or family member they need to lose weight there's there's no benefit okay I mean I can't imagine how do you even say that if a friend or family member is overweight and you're worried about their health it's never a good I didn't mention it to them no matter how difficult the conversation may be end user blinker I'm blinker user pry early I'm probably a little too cautious blinker I'm like I'm thinking of going over lane I have a committed you ever let me turn my blinker on just in case that's a day I'll never forget barbecues or Mowatt t shirt she was killing me and that stirred Stephen Matz on the river I do roll over there so the answer is I shop watchdogs use your blinker I was reading the story this morning and the expert says there's no benefit I'm doing this new diet called the fifth thirty-three stop stops off what nothing funny how you've given a new name like literally we're talking to people about it yesterday called the fit thirty three and then it's actually kind of genius rebranding alley cut down on almost no sugar and zero carbs but I do have a lot up the game one little longer than I had hoped but this we exhausted every single salts good put up there all right nice job amy or the winner congratulations station going well for love and brings it brings it up I think it's highly unlikely that someone who is struggling with their weight doesn't know it do you ever feel because I feel sometimes like I may know it little fruit natural sugar it's called the thirty three most of them I've been listening Yeah Wilson Caters to my body right kidney like don't go out and trash like that right so they stopped talking because I mean I would imagine as the friend giving up then you're left with one then you probably have to watch how you treat your back you're like Oh yeah so you're doing intermittent fasting and you're like no I'm not doing intermittent bit thirty three hundred thirty three percent of the day I can eat meat hours and I can only eat in my thirty three percent of the day take on second roads spoke at all since October and they had a falling out and so but they say yes or the big news is Selena liked this girl's instrument post like baby step pickups my limousine is traffic jams and there may hold the winter not wait for me it's different things but if someone mentioned I'm like oh I guess people can actually see that like Oh this is an obvious thing my pants or to victory search here and for the nobody else's tried this have you ever heard the fifth thirty three or four now you have called pit thirty three point three I was looking at this Selena Gomez story so remember the Selena Gomez story where she got a kidney from a friend and then Selena Gomez or some controversy because she was allegedly drinking and the print was like well I just gave you mind is blown that she didn't get injured that it was just that use over that amount of time the harder it good for her for you know working back into it but about to get married and she was like I was told I'm never going to walk again loud I WANNA so lost these for legs from being a Goner for seven years yes not like she got down crazy eh got an eight and the neighbor has to be more and then what you wait which just like that I like step the making you're like okay I can get past this crazy I there you go that's that's good stuff that's what it's all about that was telling me something good tirelessly and surprised him and walk twenty feet down the aisle when she got married just a lot of rehab lottery have strengthening and just exercises the job I mean I yeah so I guess it would and then some people like if they get notifications they may know they may who got a falling out with might look at their phone and it says Dr Ranks and figure out what's the best of the best in the things that really matter consider this your escape from the cold hold tune in on the iheartradio thrilla S- best and the rest every week you can hear me and my amazingly talented colleagues talk about the best of the best in food drink travel and entertainment like what's the best yeah hopeless good for her got her a kidney they should be friends I hate each other but once you give somebody a kidney that's their kid take backs yeah uh like I do that sometimes somebody that I'm not talking to it all like a falling out with that I'll go on like a post what's up everyone I'm wolf in senior writer and producer for thrills with some amazing podcast news we just launched our very first podcast see but the next day new air pods are coming out are you kidding me what else okay so people are paying thousands of dollars for their Halloween costume very in you're like Whoa I sacrifice for you and you're going to do that although I would say once you give somebody something it's their loan money to some family member you can't expect to get it back so but they haven't ever small dilemma that I was hoping you could help me with long story short I met this great girl she could be the one rar talking about moving in together we but what she didn't realize is the heavy shells were damaging her back and over years and years and years she eventually lost the use of her legs and so she's in a wheelchair for seven years sure bobby bones just like your picture yes okay so I definitely like that that's happening it is a very millennial way to go to here's an olive branch that it is an all French but it is itself until we make that big step not marriage but just moving in which she break up with me over my debt signed Garrett slowly but it's going to take me another twenty years I'm twenty eight years old should I tell her about my debt before moving together or keep it to me thank you great that was right second place I I did I make you proud city to bar hop in what's the best thing the order Taco Bell what's the Best Pixar movie listen to thrill his best and the rest to get an inside look at how we make our list apple podcasts or wherever he was podcast your buddy and my miss the transmitter Vindaloo for six months I'm excited the thing is I have a lot of debt I mean a lot of debt I over one hundred thousand dollars in school loans and credit card debt I've been painted we like to answer some of those in our mailbag here we go a male bobby bones my name is Garrett she didn't get shot or anything like that just the repetitive use and so she was like I want to surprise my husband and walked down the aisle at my wedding and so she worked or that they noticed too that you liked and it's interesting yes yeah you do look at people who like yourself ever clicked all the little circles and see who's liked her the for sure no take back judge them for what they do it's now their kidneys I told that story to it's time for the good news ah when immigrants in was eighteen years old she said I want to serve my country and she signed up for the army and she was a gun uncaught America right you're a lot of emails sent up here to the show she's you know she's got she's got Ruby Red Lips blond hair blue eyes blond hair everybody gets moving in together as a big step yeah you can call us as well and and add your opinion eight seven seven seventy seven bobby by so there you go he's not saying get married and hide it from her he's saying when they're moving in together that's a big step should he let her then because they're not married okay just want to make sure that Willis best and the rest on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts you know basically everywhere anywhere you can find podcasts thank you what if what if you're living with somebody or you're dating somebody and you lose your job should you tell them you lose your job yeah it's up to you the problem is if they find it isn't so you probably should tell her I don't think moving in together me you have to tell them everything I don't if you're getting married yes that he's not even giving her the opportunity all I'm saying is you don't need to share the super super personal business if you don't want to until it's time to be engaged so you're going to move in together what if you give her the opportunity to help you if she's like you know what wow I didn't realize that maybe I should pay more of the written some more of your money can go towards cleaning out your debt what if she's kind like that in personally I've been in that same situation and I told my friend about my de and he helped me actually get out of it good for him I don't think it's manageable as a breaking point where you have to let them know and it's before even before engagement I would say but just moving in together I don't think you have I think it's probably valuable seller before you get engaged she's GonNa be like we've been living together for two years from you never told me you had one hundred thousand dollars in debt now we're about to get married and a Mardi so in love with the you're you're dead if you don't want to it to something that's my opinion let me go over and talk to Ashland in Mississippi Ashland you're on the air we think about this information that but he may not feel like he's convinced her yet either to like beat the he's the one one I'm GonNa say you have to does he have to tell her just moving in together he has to tell her ruining together that's a huge step if they're moving in together I would think that she thinks I don't know I would think marriage is on the horizon but I could move in with Eddie we get a place together I don't owe it to him if they moving in together to save money or because they love each other and they wanna see if this is gonNa work I think before you get married you have audio it could help them long running I also think it's a good idea I just don't think he owes it to her I don't think anybody you give me that again let them know but I don't think just because you're moving together you have to tell everything one hundred hundred dollars but if it was ten point is there is you figure it out what would Dave Ramsey say I mean everything you're saying I feel you I just don't think he owes it to her if they're just moving in together I think you owe it to the other person in what if they don't move into at like two thousand in debt would have and it's like I did the opposite of lottery I'm now million whole lost mega millions again it's a good unloving finish my buying a house together yes if they're just moving in together as room like living together whose whose name is on the thing like how are they dividing what if she what if what if you got a kid again that doesn't live with you but that's a really personal thing that's the next level stuff moving together I think he's level two of three you don't have to share it's serious relationship is the order then eventually event yes I mean if you move in together he would get hurt tennis shoes on and run for the hills you don't want to give her the nudity run from you well and you act like you're going to work is the deception right and there's no deception I guess if you're not disclosing your debt are you deceiving but one day what if she's just like hey wow I've got that I don't know I'm going to have to write off this but what are we gonNA do about it nowhere hundred who knows two years later you're more on the whole maybe if you haven't come up with a plan what if she's what if she can help you to have that conversation I just don't think oh it Chris in Oklahoma you are on the Bob show you've heard the email he says he's GonNa move it they're not engaged or not what marriage should he rebuilt hurries one hundred thousand dollars in debt I would say insinuation no it'd be a very bad idea because she not that I don't want to give her the opportunity I don't want money to be the issue of why she is staying or going okay well yeah hopefully she won't leave you because of the hundred thousand dollars but she needs to know about it I could understand her needing to know but she doesn't happen transparently I am yeah all right Garett my answer as you should but you do not have to as long as you're not deceiving her you're good to go and answer is don't let people like amy convince you do because you don't me and all the callers here on one side mic on your side thanks as long as he's not deceiving her than together they're thinking of life that way they're thinking of life as we I don't know call me old fashioned old-fashioned that Oh really yeah can't compare and contrast pose beautiful picture of Ami with the loving caption in the name he's all like here's saying this is all I'm saying if you don't WanNA share with their don't share with you probably should eventually you're going to have to feel like she's the one at some point you're going to have to share it listen to you do evatt that's terrible does it compare contrast from the members of the show on the first day I log bank account and go here here's everything I have a why here's the password look at if you still WanNa go on a second date let me know that's how you should and you should okay there you have it that's the mail bag thank you thank you there we go we that was let me take one more Linda Missouri on the Air Hi Linda tape go amy I agree with amy the first of all you knew I thought it was a video posted this wonderful picture of amy on I'm like my instagram feed right now Mr Bobby bones you'll see a picture of Amien is smiling and in the caption I put the friends theme song I'll be there for you when the rain starts to pour I'll be there for he's a book face both I'd messy hair the wind was blowing mine and then years just take a second today and look at Mr Bobby bones you're saying he doesn't over that doesn't win was do I have to do it in your answer is no you don't have to would you probably would but you're saying no let me read the comments Oh bobby I love bobby is not a flattering photo thank you okay fine Swat team member for Halloween yes talk about costume well he loves policeman and so when we were at target we saw they had swat team available and he was like Oh wow that's that's like make sure that she looks good I and this one goes I'm in the picky like Oh it's Dwight and Pam Dwight yeah mixture of all those things he's in a police uniform I would have no issue with a little kid having a gun in a police uniform for Halloween I wouldn't so you need to be on front okay I agree with that too you just don't have to just getting try to join us now joining you if he doesn't wanNA share right people if he was big enough for people to really confused him that maybe that's a cop I would think the gun would be something to think about kids play with guns I don't think we can have they're all great so he just better health at that question isn't come up do we have any debt can melt in your pocket fine because in my mind if they're moving we tried to teach him like if he has any bb gun he knows how to shoot like cans but he asked all we teach them all the rules so anyway he wants to trick or treat with a gun because policeman I would never go anywhere without their gun point evensen and I just don't think that we need to walk around with a gun in the neighborhood this is not good fake dangerous and the little holster and you stick it in there and he's like well where's my gun because he's got a flashlight too and this like a fake one but we're giving a real flashlight and so he's like well where's the gun and I said Oh buddy you don't you can't trick or treat with a gun remember we only play with guns inside the house and you can't shoot your North Gun at anybody unless they're bare armed as well because I would say if it were March ninth just him walking around with a fake gun not cool cat how Halloween well let's see what did they find the UH bobby's cheerios ooh yeah Okay well let's do a segment about you why not one your son is going to be I've already told him no so I mean but I can change my mind and you will love me Elizabeth the Nashville you're on good morning wab usually not real but if it's fake if it could be perceived as real and then other parents are iffy about guns and I just want to make a weird reason super super realistic and also he's a kid it's Halloween I think it's fine you on the other hand don't right now but five calls doc hard-core police so he's all about it and it came with a Vitton or what's that thing that you like you know but it's fake was possible but it still looks like Logan in Oklahoma Your thoughts Logan you're on the Air Morgan would you like Adam yeah okay make your radio going at it and go like Bobby looks good that's why are you kidding one vote it's okay let's go to billy in Missouri who billy you were on the Swat team is that true yes came for eighteen months Swat team member and you want to have a gun with his Halloween costume a five callers is the first five they called in I say it's fine as long as the gun is super herself right here when I took the cell for you saw the picture I thought you'd be like don't pose that you didn't I never say don't post that you could plus whatever you want to me go but I think you should let him be a kid and not worry about what other people are GonNa say as long as you're teaching him to safety in every other day light of how to use a gun I five dollars a pop in will will weigh in that'll be the poll bobby bowl show amy son is nine years old he's probably four foot five he's going Komo morning we think there I think that it's fine I think you should let him be a kid toluene when I was growing up it would have been fine that was also thirty take down there's no need to compare and contrast the dip we show you saw a good picture of yourself just you know it was a one day and because of the modest like no what is safe for your forefoot five kid on Halloween night in Swat team costume to walk with a gun right the Dow okay mic your own way think about this I think actually I think it's a just fine for kids out there and do that I mean I was a correction officer for seventy talk your son like even foot four y'all maybe he's little little some we're fine if caller call too I mean I would appreciate that like other parents what did they do especially five calls or a police officer for that matter what is safe for my child to be walking around with a gun that is my reason we'll because I get all of they don't like to scare anybody with a gun I I think if you were twelve thirteen fourteen or being it wasn't Halloween okay so billy former Swat team possibly getting the life of bones axiom okay billy says it's fine that's two votes it's okay you like I've been there before just two friends a wonderful picture I if you go to amy's feed it's the worst picture of me and she told me she only looked at I five callers well I guess they all say that they think it's okay I think it's okay yeah well then I guess I guess I'm GonNa let him carry a gun and he's going to be so mailbag Leonel backdoor to computer froze up. Yeah I only have one sliders right to stop that other better doubled up I'll definitely don't do that I don't I mean I could get a hold of them if I wanted to one of them's married to our friend's sister I could I could track them down but now channel Texture X. Day whether you the breaking up and broken up with National Texture X. Day so get on your phone they can something you want to say participated National Texture X.

And of course If you guys don't know we record all these episodes If one day yeah in one day You know we usually get about four done occasionally if my schedule has been horrible will do. What's our record now? Six or seven. Oh Wow yeah six. I think yeah and that was on time ago a couple of months ago. That doesn't seem like it'd be that the thing to do but yeah anyway. The point is we had never mind. I'm just going to get into the episode. Hey look at that. No conclusion of the story. Hey guess what Joe. What is that this segments also brought to you by honor and federal premium ammunition whether there was a firefight or you do in fact want to worry about that little guy you need more ammo and when it's time to restock you can't beat federal premium ammunition and lucky dot com with the Shipping Department? That's always moving eight miles per hour. If I were a case of American Eagle from gun around Thursday that my doorstep rated shoot before the weekend starts had lucky Gunnar DOT com today to check out there in stock lineup of federal premium ammunition. And remember. Unless you're on fire or drowning or some other set of circumstances I am not considering right now at this moment you can never really have too much ammo So joining us today and I'm super excited. It's Eric Gill House. Eric how are you John? How are you this morning? Oh I I can't complain man. I am living the Dream. Life is good. I really appreciate you coming on the show for those. That don't know who are in what you do and we'll hop right in. So what do I do Not much right now. I recently retired after Twenty nine years law enforcement will longer public safety stuff. Did some military Before and during that Was kind of a reformed gun writer now Student of a lot of this stuff I teach a little bit worked for aim point for awhile and Kinda bounced through the academic world Not going stop in before my doctorate but wishing into it a little bit. I mean you could. You could be Dr Gale House. That'd be cool. Yeah no it's too much more work in school and I'm not really feeling yeah. Someone that's considering higher education and I'm you know I'm in my I guess I'm going to be in my either. The End of my mid thirties or the beginning of my late thirties In March and I'm just looking at more I'm looking at going back to school on just like oh I don't know about this You know and and you're a year or two older than I am and I can't imagine it gets any easier sell. I finished Grad School. Fifty one And Yeah I was ready to be done with it. Yeah So you know so. You're someone that I've had a few conversations with throughout the years and I've always been super impressed and you certainly been inside of the community and as you said reform gun writer which we could do a whole show on Is there like a twelve step program for that or you know you've got a cold Turkey? Yeah it's like oh I've done I. I guess my first question is so you recently retired. You're you're someone that I know to Be What I would consider and I don't know what the I mean. I guess traditionally you would say switched on or Generally knowledgeable. I just think of us a good dude. That knows what he's talking about Which you don't always run into on the Admin side in the law enforcement community. I'm not trying to be disparaging of of a police or police Adleman But you know I've dealt with some like as an outsider specifically on the training side of things that it was just like ooh You and and you're not that dude. So I guess my first question would be What are some of the things to consider When you're you're doing that job like how do you? How do you prep guys and Gals to be able to do what they need to do? Inside of that environment so that from a couple of different perspectives one. I've taught for the Office for several years. But I got you the field training officer Role I spent about On on and off in that side of the business owes working one on one with a with a new in our case deputy And then eventually became a sergeant Ran a shift from the last three and a half years in the business What I tried to do with my guys was given case law. Eight years with the court ears. Look the event was. Here's what the courts you're talking about As we got more and more video available to US sitting down watching video and the shifts running through having guys talk about it with their opinions throwing the case law throwing training tactics and kind of work through that And let 'em process stuff and try to Kinda front-load some responses or be able to go see. I've seen this before. I have mental map for how this might play out And we worked through kind of that to to to see them up for success by having seen either the right way to do it or a right way to do it or potentially as it were things could have been done better So that they have some idea of how to work the problem they encounter it well so and and that sort of fits in everything that I know about. You know through other people's work in research rights on I I wouldn't consider myself to being Originating much of anything and whether my opinion counter not is going to be very open to a personal personal feelings and opinions of other people. Listen to those but as far as the everything that I've seen indicates the people that you know have good mental maps And have have considered things in a pre need basis versus in a reactionary in the moment basis tend to perform better in the moment. Yes so you're not trying to scramble And I'M NOT GONNA go down the road because John has done a much better job of explaining what people think it is what it really is. We got scrambling trying to figure out. What that response is you got you. You've got a way to respond to it based on what you're seeing how you're processing that problem in your you've all you've already discarded a number of potential responses that may not be the best And are just working through one two. Maybe three better responses Brad. Right well and see you've been through the four science material as well right So I went through that back in twenty twelve and then there's another west coast density that came from the Military Aviation Community California Institute. I can't think of their name. Their their current named they do similar material but with a slightly different. Take on it right in and the reason I bring that up is is because that's that seems to be a pretty well understood. area Inside of the you know at least inside of the community where people Study this for living Live but it seems like something that is not widely understood. Why I I don't WanNa paint with that broad of a brush. It seems like an area word it can be overlooked inside of the Admin side of things is that is that your experience as well or you know you have a different opinion. Or is it just depends? I think it depends on the organization. I think it depends on the experience of the people within the organization As to whether or not the understand how events play out or how how these these encounters actually happen Son had been through their career without having to deal with some of these events On a personal level some of investigated them and rose to the top. I don't always see a lot of people in the business. Who made it to chief elected? Sheriff would spent a bunch of time on the training side of things And I think by dot having done so it's not that they're bad administrators or something bad individuals they just haven't necessarily seen some of this material and kind of understood it in a hands on way right So well let's see this. We got to go to break And I was GONNA ask a question but then I'm immediately going to need interrupt you Which is just frustrating for everyone right so right now we're talking with Erik L. House. You're listening to ballistic radio. Belichick radio brought to you by Lucky. Dot Com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this. So you don't have to this thing that brought you by Wilson Combat Wilson combat makers of the finest custom nineteen eleven and Scattergun since one thousand nine hundred seventy seven a legacy of quality innovation and service learn more about their firearms and accessories as well as the sign L. Alongside version of the nine which offers discriminating shooters nineteen eleven match grade. Accuracy Superior Ergonomics and conceal ability with modern service pistol capacity as well as reliability at www dot wilson combat dot com. So we're talking with Erik Jailhouse. And we're sorted discussing Right now at least the Edmund side of things and you know the importance of essentially pre need decision making in Removing novel Stimuli From from sort of the encounters the people could possibly face. Is there any specific area that you found that a that be who's people To pay extra attention to in sort of that pre need decision making environment so the more exposure. I think you can get the things you talked about the novelty. Yeah that would be one of them so if you can get into competently tot force on force training Where you're going up against another human being is thinking breathing preferably at scripted. But you still got the variations of dealing with another human outside of that. If you get into simulate A good use of force simulator to kind of work through some of this stuff Agencies can go out and buy the virtual. That's two hundred seventy degrees. But there's a handful of local Gun Stores in my area. They're now starting to buy one screen simulators to use her. Ccw Glasses since starting to kind of push that this scenario simulator training up to folks watch the videos That are coming out. Look at news. Articles are horrible so you tried to die the deeper into it but if you can see what. The courts are saying Not only in the law enforcement side. That's where the majority of the case law comes from because it's lawsuits not necessarily criminals criminals that drives the case law. But look what the courts are saying about what they think is reasonable Versus what is it reasonable? You're always GONNA have politics. Come into play outside of an organization You'RE GONNA have media come into play. And how they drive and presents events Whether or not they're going off their their emotional reaction to it or whether or not they're talking to people can give them some insight and then letting insight kinda tried to report. When that's something that maybe we'll we'll touch on A little bit later Because I know you've got some personal experience with with that but before before we get into that Is As far as on the training side? Preparing people to deal with us. Like super chaotic situations I know that I I seen a couple of your write ups like things that have occurred inside of your agency. is far as you know good responses by. Your D- your folks to very chaotic situations Is there anything in particular that you think is a predictor to success in those situations that you know what I mean? Yeah I think time on the Front End Even if it's just kicking it around with another out of your mind kicking it around with another person the processing of things How you're running in in your mind is playing out as you're going into it as playing out The last few years I was doing more from the supervisory role. Swazis are going to it as it was at the event was kind of playing out or I was getting there in the aftermath of the event and then working through it from the organizational part When I was still still working deputy It was more how things played out how they pan out. So The visualization on the front end in addition to the scenario or simulator training. I think running through your mind and how you're going to handle them Believed that away from the trains. Nudity the phrases auto genyk bring. That could be wrong but otherwise it's it's in. The police world been called combat breathing. So it's putting yourself situation where you're consciously regulating your breathing. Slow yourself down to get the oxygen and you know not only by slow yourself down on your breathing down where you get the oxygen. And which is like consciously slowing yourself down. You start to process some of the stuff a little bit better I had a pursuit that I was in where the video caught me doing the breathing during the majority of the pursuit When I wasn't having to be on the radio but it actually got me consciously doing the breathing. Slow everything down so I think that's one of those things that helps so a little while ago. You sort of mentioned how emotional responses to things can affect the aftermath and you know there's there's a wide gulf between how things are reported versus. What actually happened I know that I know that you've got personal experience in that area on I guess my my first question would be. You know it it. If you're in this environment even a little bit you sort of had this idea that the media is not GonNa do you any favors no matter how justified you are In what you do and how reasonable your actions are Like in the moment and viewed afterwards but were you caught off guard at all by by how that actually plays out in real life and you and you can share as much or as little details of the event. We're talking about Completely up to you but was was that was that a surprise. I guess I I didn't expect great or great or even maybe fair media coverage On it I really didn't expect it to go to the level that it did With the media And this time degrees with people in the community. Yeah actually and people in the community There been fairly early on within a couple of days of the aftermath of the shooting. And we'll talk about your An interview with a professor at a University of South Carolina and he does an awful lot of law enforcement and so forth and local paper and talk to him. They give him the fact pattern as it was known which was which never changed And he was like no. It's reasonable if Y- this happens this perfectly reasonable for an officer to respond. I was like okay break. And they completely disregarded that Shall things were how the outcome was? Perceived drove everything and there was very little attention or kind of understanding explanation of what might trainee and I perceive we were facing when we encountered the situation so it made it real difficult because for quite a while we look at it from what we saw that after whereas everybody else was looking at it from an awful lot of people were looking at some how they saw it in the paper the next morning. Well and that's it. It seems very interesting to me that You know and I. I've fallen victim this as well right where so. I I know just enough about how these things go down to be. Dangerous Right And a completely unrelated event You know video was posted and you know given the totality of the circumstances the officers actions audio completely Completely justified You know if you had all the information that they had Looking at the video. I'm like ooh that looks Kinda Iffy And and and you know I I think my I think my response You know when the question was raised and this isn't a private group so this isn't me like prog like exclaiming publicly like my opinion on this because I wouldn't do that But this was you know a a pure group or the entire point is to sit around and discuss these sorts of things And I remember going It's probably okay but like that looks Kinda now looks Kinda iffy and then someone That had more information was like well. Here's you know. Here's what was actually being you know going on I'm like Oh okay But like even me knowing better was still you know kind of like kind of like I don't know and so I it seems it seems that that's pretty natural human tendency We got to go to break and I'd like to. I'd like to get your thoughts on that. And then if you'd like to get into details you can Right now we're Talking with Eric L. House. You're listening to ballistic radio.

House And you were sort of saying. After your the specific incident that we're referencing As essentially the response inside of even our community was was mixed and it seemed like a lot of people I actually got into pretty bad. Fight with someone over you When all that was going on and and I may or may not it might might be one of the few times. I've ever told someone that if I saw them in person I would hurt them. but it seemed like a a lot of people just didn't care what actually happened. You know Yes side you WanNa talk about. What actually happened or completely. I'll give kind of a little bit. I won't give necessarily a five thousand foot yovany dealing with a higher So it was October. Twenty Thirteen Cata treaty would be that day we Pulled into what was what was the highest crime area in our county at the time We were on our way from afternoon. Copy cause a caffeinated field. Training officer is a happy during officer and I told Mike I said look you know. It's it's time for you but if you find anything along the way we'll go ahead and doing so pull it in the area Murders attempted murders home invasion robberies assault with a deadly weapon I've recovered a whole bunch of just about every human portable fire in that neighborhood Narcotics search warrants gang search warrants various assignments over the years all in that area We come across vigil walking the street. carrying what looks to be an AK47 California whether you agree or not California's not an open carry state There are county ordinances about carry firearms in areas as residential areas. And things like that. If you're out hunting in the woods it's totally different CaN'T WAIT. We see this individuals walking away from us His clothing is the color of the gang predominant to that area. It's about three fifteen in the afternoon so I have also have three schools getting out in very close proximity Less than a mile. I'm putting out the radio traffic. My trainee hits the Siren. The individual turns and looks at US He we give him some commands his response to turn towards us when he turns towards us. What looks to be the. Ak47 comes up rises. When I say it looks to be an AK47. I can see the woodstock. I can see the would grip. The magazine would form right She insists that Distance About Twenty. Three twenty five yards When it happens Somebody said he goes down. We get assistance there We go up to. We've called for England's got everybody coming We go up to secure him. In at that point I realized that what both my tree and I thought was wasn't AK47's an air soft replica with the orange tip removed right. We get him searched. Secured permits are coming in I don't see a second air soft gun out of his waistband And it goes from there what. I don't know for several hours and what seems to be what drove a lot of reaction to it. Over time was not that mail was she was a teenager was fairly teenager. Who had consumed a fair amount of controlled substances earlier in the day? Before right so that's kind of the nutshell on it. So I guess. Let me let me think about so. I guess what and I remember when this occurred right and I remember On how it was reported and so the facts of the case were not what was reported. Even a tiny bit so. I guess my question would be. How would you prepare? You know anyone. That's listening. I mean I guess. Should there be a reasonable expectation by anyone that either goes arm professionally or chooses to go armed as a private citizen For personal protection. Should there be an expectation in your experience that the media is going to get the facts of the case. Correct In your mind so I don't expect to be need to get the facts correct Historically one of the problems that I see within law enforcement in terms of these events is we haven't done a good job getting information out fast enough soon as as a profession. We're getting better but there's still a lot of lag on that For I mean he was pretty decent normal human being because people want to argue citizens value that I don't So for at least being a self defense situation. You don't have an agency that has a reputation to maintain. That's trying to explain why you did what you did right. And they have a reputation maintain with the investigation but not in terms of how they represent you. attorneys may or may not be well-versed in these events and being able to communicate with the press About the intricacies of why these things happen inaccuracies of law Some of the trees are really colonel. Defense attorneys but you're they're not defending a criminal in this case they're defending a decent human being defended themselves and they don't always necessarily know how to work. Make that switch I would expect the media to based on experience. Look for anything. They could perceive as unfavorable and find a way to use it against you. So the in my case the fact that I'd been in the military was used adversely I was use of force. Instructor was used adversely Things I had written articles specifically in article on Surviving. The ambush was used against me repeatedly in the media. So these what? What's funny to me about that specifically Is You would like I traditionally would would view those as all positive things like this. This speaks to You know the prior knowledge that someone had It sets up frankly If I were private citizen right and I got into a shooting that for whatever reason went to trial The more documentation that I have of what I knew going into that the better. It is for me And I still believe that but like things that that I really anyone familiar with Defending a you know a shooting in in court you're saying the media is using as negatives against you in my case they use those as against the it was In the aftermath and working through everything was very difficult. Because a lot of the things I thought I had done good professionally service to the country servicing. The teaching writing all the things that go down that road We're viewed as adverse And that kind of took a lot of mental processing to works through as it was pointing out right. So how do you prepare people for that sort of mental resiliency? I mean so you know if someone that's got people or even just someone listening to this right now if you if you're in a if you're in a you know leadership role to where You've got people you're responsible for. That might be put in this situation. And frankly if you're listening if people are listening to this they're in that role on on some level or another like how do you. How do you help? Prepare people for that possibility so think this is going back to that. Kind of frontloading stuff's not only the scenario training. But really know the law We know the case law what I had a pretty good handle on case law Both Circuit Court in federally. Before this happened I really nerd out. On the case lie aspects afterwards Having been through four science having much better understanding of how the brain works what the brains looking at Howard processes helped me to understand how the event played out the way it did and why Trying to be in a position where you know enough to take to take an active role in working with your attorneys working with other people in the aftermath. So that's all you have to do on the front end so really make sure people know. In addition to you know the requirements for concealed carry permit. What is their state saying about self defense when Ken went? Can't that You know there's trees out there who specialize in this stuff. There's folks writing books know what it is that that you kanter can't do in your state If you have one of these multi-state. Cw prevents Like TO UTAH. One local to me. That's good the budget saints. I'm going to go because I'm just really curious on how beans these other states view things No those have is going to handle on the as you can realize that. Not every problems going to be a firearm problem And if you can solve it if you can fix it at a lower level You hopefully won't go down that road but by the same token really think about what you're putting out in public what you're putting out on social media I always tried to get on the Internet. My real name part of it was because I just really wasn't terribly creative on screen names But I also try to to post things that weren't GonNa jam me up that work in the cosby problems And I was surprised at how things that I'd made. An effort of not saying poorly came back to haunt me because of how they were perceived by people outside of law enforcement military decent human being training community. Well here I'd like to. I'd like to talk about that a little bit more. We gotta go to break though right now. We're talking with Erik L. House and you're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to ballistic radio brought to you by lucky under dot com and federal premium. Ammunition they paid for this so you don't have to So before the break you were. You're sort of talking about how you'd always tried to make an effort to be very careful in in what you said online and how you represented things online And thought you done a pretty good job of dealing that But so I guess I guess my question would be. Do you think that we often times? Forget that Some of the base assumptions that were operating under Inside of our community and pretty much most everyone. That's listening to this will be members of our community. are not B.'s. Operating assumptions that non-communication community members or or operating under I. That was a really like ugly way to ask a question like the language. There wasn't very clear but you you see what I'm I'm asking. Yes and just make sure I I understand it. Do I think that we in our community view things differently than folks who are in it do. Yeah yes Specifically one that was Toss well was tossed back when I was kind of their discussion on the fiery line that had lasted for cup. Farm Ford It's been around since league. He's discussion and his lasted Couple of years on if you ended up at a use of force situation against somebody who had turned out to be Listening and gone back and forth for a couple of years and there were a bunch of different responses on it and I had offered that would regardless of why you did it would come down to your ability to explain to the cops and the court why you did what you did and it would be reasonable That was viewed by reporters and By part of the legal system as being premeditation that I had premeditated the event based on that post. I'm I mean I'm having a hard time well seeing how that could possibly be the case Knowing what I know about how vision works especially at twenty five yards You know and how. How old were you at the time of the incident? Twenty thirteen so I was forty eight. Okay war prescription glasses had him on that day. did we did visual recreations of the whole event at the distances involved from the positions that were involved With replica firearms with the orange tip on without the orange tip And with a real firearm and while you the people involved could clearly see the orange tip on the one that had it yeah When it came to the actual AK47 and the AKA THE REPLICA AKA. Without the orange tip there was no way to discern the difference. Yeah not not not humanly possible right And that's always kind of interesting to me when when we're looking at stuff in you know afterwards right The number of times were essentially the expectation. Is that the. The players in the event are able to be performed to a superhuman level essentially like beyond the limits of human performance It's I don't know I don't know why that is It's you know and it's it's a thing. Yeah I was GONNA give you one example that stuff that came up in the that I think might help folks who are familiar with the kind of understand. Why so you're shooting at traditional handgun iron sights. Generally you're focused on the front sight. Which means that everything behind the front sides. Blurry and everything on the far side of the frontside is boring. And it's about arms about front sides about arms length sure we weren't in my debt incurred. Oh about twenty three yards so there was a lot of from the judges involved in the case they did not understand how I could not give the specific angle that the AK forty seven had risen because once it started to rise focus shifted to my front sight So I can't I cannot tell you what was going on down range in front of me at that point because I'm seeing it about really clearly at about thumbs linked right. I'm not seeing really clearly at twenty plus yards but there were several people involved in this. They couldn't understand. Why couldn't tell you everything that was going on at twenty three yards if that makes sense explanation right well I mean is someone that understands human vision and specifically understand how most normal people have to shoot By that makes perfect sense to me like that. That's makes perfect sense to me So but once again that that seems to be this sort of case where Some of the assumptions that I take for granted is just someone. That's knowledgeable about the specific topic are not going to be taken for granted by individuals after the fact that are not involved. Yes so as far as you mentioned earlier and I sort of. I'd like to ask your thought on this You mentioned taking an active role inside of your legal team and that was something that was helpful to you I had the opportunity to to to go. And this is tangential. I'll get to it I had the opportunity a couple years ago to jump at airplanes with the With the US. Army parachute team Multiple Times in the entire reason I got to do that is because You know we were out there for training event and at the time I was a big fat guy. Now I'm just kind of a little fat guy and they were. They were playing around with You know how to do. Tandem jumps were at the upper range of the safe weight limit. And how to make that more comfortable for the person involved Anyway so I don't like heights Been out of airplanes before never liked very much You know so. I'm doing this thing and it's just bad. It's not fun going out the door once. I'm falling. It's little bit better but Not much wanted at a certain point. go hey do you want to. You'll learn how to skydive. I'm like sure and they gave me stuff to do and just like feeling like ahead. Some measure of control. What was going on was incredibly helpful to my mental state during the event itself. And the reason why I go on this tangent and ask is I sort of observed that we tend to do better in situations when we feel like we have some measure of control over an in. Is that your experience? And is that why you think that it was helpful to you to take an active role in side of the the legal side of things I don't I don't necessarily know back up I had that concerned about the attorneys. What they knew in terms of not only the case law concerns but also the human factor stuff because in twenty thirteen. We didn't have as many people who'd been through four sciences. We seem to have now in twenty nineteen so he it seemed that not everyone necessarily had the INFO But it was helpful to me to be in a position where I was feeding information. I'm getting them to pay attention in critiquing. What was being done? Based on the information I had about JAS law about four signs about the training side of things. He did. Give me something to do in working through that problem right We're coming up on the end of the show man We're actually GONNA run just slightly long on this one which is fine What would be? I mean if you had to leave everyone listening with one. Final thought Well what would that be to the degree that you can? You need to be your own expert. You're not gonna be able to testify the expert witness in the case offering an opinion and explaining but you need to know what your you need your training was you need to know. What the laws are you need to know? Why did what you did? And why that works within the legal parameters that you could at least educate everyone on your side right right. Well Eric I I really appreciate you coming on the show In talking about you know difficult subject matter that frankly not many people are are in the position to speak to with any sort of authority So I really appreciate it and I know the listeners due to So thank you very much for that. Thank you for having me on John. I appreciate the opportunity to do it like I told you. I've talked to a couple of groups within the public safety world about the aftermath of this one is the first time I've kind of talked. I had talked openly about with an attorney to be. Yeah well and I think that Just leave it. I really appreciate it. I think it's super valuable so I hope you enjoy the rest of your day. I know you get to go to to gun Mecca and just a little bit so I hope you enjoy that And I look forward to talking to you soon. Brother Hope you hope you be safe planet. It's about a twelve hour. Drive the gun sight. And I'll be teaching carvings and then a couple of weeks so that would say life is good. Yeah Man It really is. Hey guys make sure you check out our website.

our winner is Cheryl yes she was in Maxim magazine one time over my bed I loved it because I loved her before it was cool to love her just say Oh yeah wanted to do it let's do it edited phone town so I mean what's wrong with wanting to get into trouble I mean sometimes you're going to blow off some steam feel alone between now and then I think they have product to get rid of they have contracts with certain designers who are still doing their thing so it doesn't make fiscal since two to stop it today but you're making fun of Nicki Minaj I think you were a little bit of yesterday a lot of times I'm not just yesterday at least she admitted an embrace a little bit troubles goon anyone anyone let's go toilet paper the cops right down the first precinct yeah I don't know I think and by the way we talk about the hypocrisy of paper straws I know look I'm all for I'm all my manfried merchandise you'll have to pay for because we're trying to conserve which is fine but they've if I don't pay for the big I'm walking out with teaser where am I putting these t-shirts so I just bought kids my complaint go ahead when you want certain stores now they ask you if you want a bag to carry your merchandise outwith you have to pay for it Lord sort of doing the right thing is my point yeah we're trying maybe it's going in the right direction and it takes a little time I get that like for instance straws that are literally made a pasta greatest thick though pastas a thin piece snap eight that straws now but then they'll still have plastic everything else stirs things no but they're they're doing paper straws because they get the headlines I go boxes everything I see what they're doing they're encouraging you not to bring your own bag or bring your own bag yeah absolutely okay but when it comes to these companies that are making paper straws I feel like that's a bigger danger to some sort of turtle a reptile been Straw there danger to humans I was walking the other day at fourteen as profound knowledge right there a long neck ice cold beer never broke your heart L. is aimed at the waffle house talk all right so yesterday's show there's those same companies are still dumping sludge smart offers and things it's like we do things and we've we truly believe we're doing the right thing but the face of the plastic bag breath it's true all right so this is all hypocrisy look I know we're all hypocrites when it comes to different things I get it mistrust on us are hypocrites because they're they're only sort of doing the right right there's tons of stuff that you're doing papers are in the headlines so therefore that's what they're going for matter you're still promoting wearing I know I'm not it's not real I don't agree with that but don y'all a lot of people think that people who have a problem with our okay with leather because it's guilty as charged I'm in now this Texas we have to cut down more trees to make paper straws so we're starting the environment is true I mean they're paper today most likely what's article as far as the straws are concerned you know what they're using Italy pasta streams the fact that they're actually doing that is to be commended I love in California banning sales love it it's great I told you it's my bucket list it's are painted somebody in for why in this saving animals I'm waiting to see animals walking around and human jackets you do magic humans skin all in that an American horror story then no harvested a different way. Okay Gotcha Okay I'm not saying that people are yeah but that's why some people are okay leather not opinion anyway moving I have a lot of those have you gone on to try new apples this year as he changes the subject like a gala or a food gene I hate that when I especially like somebody's house I go in there and because I need to do a little business and I want it to cover up ninety little white noise and there's no button for the white noise that's fan doesn't really do anything except to cover up the noise enjoyable what fan keeps the condensation don't do in my house right don't do that one time and you didn't even have toilet paper that's another pet peeve who in his house there's no toilet paper I didn't have macy's said the other day they're going to stop selling products fantastic I love into their stopping in the year twenty twenty well so what what what and you know they could I feel take it a step further and just get rid of the plastic bag that you put everything in because I see those things floating around everywhere I'm sorry I'm an east you pick somebody that hates straws like you the paper Straw no let me very clear I didn't say I hate paper straws I'm just saying people who are forcing and he said where is the furthest bathroom and I said well he weighed down the hall there's a bedroom that no one ever uses it's the it's the bedroom at the and in

Here's what I want everyone doing everyone listening to the show I'm Shawn Mendez Elvis Duran Duran and the morning show Elvis Duran in the morning show here's a great way to dot com slash Elvis or if you want love and romance that's it for you go to audible dot com slash escape the morning show as you know this is breast cancer awareness month and we've been thinking pink every October for so many years and it's so important the only read a book if it's a love story like a fantasy driven love story audible has this new section called audible escape to monthly your co workers from ripping your book apart yet tell me more listen to it on audible unreadable unless scary threatens to rip Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen all right there you go you know more than we gotta talk to you and happy to have you on today we were talking last night and she was it'd be channels dedicated to love listening to love is even better as we have proven time and time again with audible over eighteen thousand titles of love that's a lot of love here's what I want you're a radiologist specializing in breast imaging chief of breast imaging at the Betty Theresa Institute for Care Hackensack New Jersey and breast center audible member you can just join audible escape just like the regular audible the first month is free you can cancel at any time audible escape has bestsellers classics big romantic audiobooks Russian for unlimited access to thousands of nothing but love stories love and Romance I love love you can either editor audible membership or if you're not in you're you're you're pods or whatever they are buds that would not be okay hey there's another thing I love audible love if you're addicted to love I know many friends you're yeah I think she's on the line hi Dr Gail Star is that you good morning like Gail May I call you Dr Gaels now radiation in that as as much as what you're saying right so a lot of people are free to get a mammogram because they're worried about the radiation and what they do really well with these by the way a lot of people are leaving reading those love stories I mean you go walk into a bookstore leave entire sections fill with all these these love books telling me these crazy statistics about like you know remember what do people were worried about radiation and stuff like that and you were telling me if you go get a mammogram the amount it seriously I think I think one of the you know there's something great about like I've always said the power of the word no the power of call me you do start your thirty day trial twos one audiobook into audible originals absolutely free you can join the big one at audio dot com an audible dot com slash elvis that's awesome I don't want us to lose sight what is were actually discussing in thinking about and learning about it so Danielle said look I have someone I want us to talk to Dr Gale St Oh my husband could teach a class bowling bluff. I think it's really great it's a it's a it's a great to be in charge of in control of your own life don't let the scary of the world go on an airplane trip from the East Coast to the West Coast or equal to the radiation that you might get from your food over the course of a year I want people to know is that the radiation does exceedingly low sometimes we compare it for people to understand we compare it to the radiation that you might get if you it's basically equal to the background radiation that you're exposed to annually just by walking around it that's a lame excuse to us the only ten percent one hundred or so we'll be asked to come back for additional imaging and that's not necessarily because there's something wrong many times it's just to get this personal views if something to clarify what we see and of those only about twenty will actually need a biopsy and of those only about from Amazon because I'm afraid of what they'll find but going for the mammogram is not going to give you the findings of the cancer that's exactly right and I think these things like that at my age being ahead of a possible problem is much better than catching it as you get it and definitely a lot better uh-huh so getting a call back from screening mammogram shouldn't send off all the alarms in the bells and whistles you're still likely to be just fine after additional evaluation live will actually have breast cancer so the incidents or the rate of of developing or finding I should say breast cancer on a Mammogram is only five out of every thousand women do you know Dr Star this is something that I've I've noticed as I'm getting older letting things go as far as concerned about an acre mammography because we know that we can detect cancers at a much earlier stage before it's felt or before there's evidence of disease elsewhere and so uh-huh you hit the nail on the head one of the biggest reasons patients don't come because they were afraid but for about every thousand women who have a screening mammogram people's bluff if someone says well and well I'm going to move up okay go ahead I'll sit here and watch you do it do it scare you sure you don't want to even starting at age forty so we're also hearing more I think now about men who have breast cancer as well so what are some things that they should be looking for and how can they get your mammogram every year at age forty if you're an average risk patient high risk patients may need to be screened earlier higher risk only about one in a a thousand breast cancers are actually really are are men not women so the risk is still very up image what we need ample bosom so we're talking to Dr Gill Star Mall but it's the same symptoms as a woman it would be a lump it would be nipple change skin changes lymph knows that they feel the symptoms are all the same we just don't than being too late and being too late is worth where all the sad stories come from absolutely and this is why we believe so strongly and scream meaning mammography over time since the nineties has really been proven to reduce mortality that's deaths from breast cancer significantly for patients of all ages screen for it so it is true that men can get breast cancer also because everybody is born with cells to develop the breast the differences that Ain or something in my body that needs a regular check it never pays off right leading letting things go in for instance you know I am I need to be doing. Colonoscopy women have the hormones that cause breast to develop more fully most men who you see that look like they have breast typically fat it's not actually breast tissue but some men do in fact develop glandular tissue usually it's hormonal in nature sometimes it's the medications but the risk is still small for developing breast cancer sisters or a lineage mother an aunt or grandmother maybe at high risk radiation to the chest so if you've had might increase the risk and and of course the biggest risk I wanna point that is just being a woman and getting older and so although patients at highest the balls Stella who does my mom she will get anything in that machine how she does it but she finds a way to get it in I know we do have the best warden at the hospital every six months just to make sure I'm on the right track so if anything does pop up we catch it ahead of time good right and so as you point are you hiring is how I found out I was higher risk this is interesting when I got my breast reduction they send the tissue away biopsy and it came back saying that I was higher risk now here's my big question what's what's our headline today this conversation we're having with you right now what is it you really want to put into action from the from these words you're you're you're saying doc we screen man unless they're at high risk because the incidence is so low well there's no way that you're going to get my small mammal machine and let me tell you because it's true but you know even even some women have very small breasts and the the machines are designed with paddles curve and they're designed to be able to get us to be able doubt so sometimes you find out your high risk some some tissue examination they'll tell you that you have some lesions that represent a high risk or risk markers but patients who carry Palma as a teen and you've had radiation to the chest it would include the breast in the field some -tations even with thyroid cancer radiation to so I imagine that might active limiting alcohol use and then of course getting screened annually so to be perfectly honest there have been many thyroid cancer and those to kind of go hand in hand so technically are higher risk for one of the other when you have one or the other so I get screened by Dr Well who turned this interview off because they don't WanNa hear this so and so for those who stuck with us to hear what Dr Star had to not get a mammogram then okay all right good we dealt with now this is a good thing and also a lot of people I know have said well I don't want don't need to go for a mammogram but that is not true if we only image those patients at high risk we would miss three quarters seventy five percent of cancer so go get your mammogram so

So I've been told by every single person I've ever been in a relationship with that. I communicate poorly. And apparently that his continued forward into the relationship I have with you. There was a time zone mix up and I will take the plane even though I think it was your fault. And you're walking your dogs right now. Which is cool because that provides the opportunity for us to live day in the life of Chuck haggard. And which I think is awesome. But thank you for joining us this morning. My pleasure. For those that don't go ahead. I was gonna say the I'm reminded once again, of that rich Mason, quote that posted the other day that people communicate seeking to understood and you often need to communicate so that you cannot be misunderstood and those are two different levels of communication. They are they are they are two very, very different levels of communication. And you know, I'm. I was going to, like, look and see, like if I could find our text log. So I could at least satisfy myself is far as oh, that's good. I did I found it. Okay. I'll still take the blame even though I'm looking at the texture it known anyway. For those that don't know. Who are you in what you do? And we will hop into the topic of today's show which I will probably decide upon as you were introducing yourself. Chuck haggard retired cop unretired police officer firefighter. Have my own business. F L training and consulting and I like guns. And I like to walk my dogs when there you go. Like long walks on the beach, and sunsets and m pepper spraying swiping. Right. So Joe swiping. Right. That is that is amazing. I mean it's the mustache, wait swiping rate. Good or bad knowing you. I, I don't know anyone even know what that means. I think it's a Tinder thing or maybe a grinder thing, I don't know. Not grinder. Okay. It's a tender thing. Apparently, I believe swipe right? Is good. I don't anyway, I guess my first question for you is. So you've been in the applied violence game for a super super long time. Not to say that your old. But you've been on it longer than I've been alive or close to. And I was curious something like that. Yeah. You know. I mean thanks. Thanks for hanging out with me, Chuck, I wouldn't I'd be annoyed by me, but you're, you're very under your very understanding. And I appreciate that. Is there anything that you've noticed makes people better suited for this than? Maybe other people from, like a temperament standpoint or a just like is there anything that in the course of your experience? You've, you've said, that's a pretty good indicator that you might be okay in this field. If you're talking about professionally sure heaven. Having some sort of a motion controller internal control, when we see people who lose it under duress, critical incidents things like that, they're lacking, emotional control. If you can't control yourself, you can't control. What's going on around you? And if you were firefight respond gets away from you, then, you know, you lose basically that part of your brain, that makes us human gives us the ability to think operate complex machinery, things like that. You know that can't happen in a fight or flight response situation. Basically, you know if you. Look at the science of our brain works. You know, you got your higher brain your mid brain. And, you know, you're basically, your lizard, brain, your Madurai, that, that operates all your out an onyx stuff if you get excited enough, then you're higher brain kinda shuts down, and your Dandan. You're your in your million brain. And listen to guys dead a present on this nip. John Hearn, and they talk about that's the, you know, the bear or the dog crashing through the screen door and getting away from ya. That's where you see people panic. Go cyclic with pistols shoot around people, that's where you see excessive force events in police work, things like that. Well in. That's something you can figure out pretty quick, just watching somebody if their for lack of a better term excitable or is that something that it's harder to spot? Actually, if you if you have a good program like when I was with piege we did quite a bit defensive tactics, you know, four on four stuff things like that, and eventually towards the end of the academy, the swat Team, USA force instructors, farms instructors DT guys would all have a week with recruits doing scenario training, and it was all interactive use of force decision making, and of course, like most places years ago we started out with basic. It was shoot don't shoot and then we knew where and things like foam batons in or pepper spray. Verbal judo things like that. So it was the whole toolbox got exercised. You know as force called for in this situation, if so, what level of force do I need to escalate or deescalate, you know, presell indicator, reading things like that. And. Sometimes we would we would actually fire people for lack of performance. If it was agreed just enough. I recall one time we had a, a recruit officer car, simulate car stop, the simulated Bagai ended up out of the car trading shots with the, the recruit, and the partner and the recruiting question ran out of me. Munition looked at the gun through it at the bad guy, and then ran away leaving their partner behind. We're gonna call that not an optimal tactical response. And then every once in a while, you would see cases like you know. I think most people would expect if they're going to have an officer prone to excessive force, it's going to be the dudes because traditionally police work. You see female officers tend to be a little bit better at Pearl skills and a little less quick. Go hand on, you know, depending on the situation that can be a good thing or bad thing. But it just kind of is what it is. But we recruit off one time who every scenario, she got into she killed everybody all the time. That's kind of a problem if you're going to be, you know, working in a society with constitutional level use of force. Yeah, it sounds like it might be. We gotta go break. So right now, Chuck Agar's walking his dog, and you're listening to radio. Welcome back to radio. Brought to you by lucky dot com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this.

Great accuracy superior economics and conceal ability with modern service pistol capacity and reliability at that'd be WW dot Wilson. Combat dot com. So before the break, we were talking with Chuck haggard, about professionals who are sort of in the applied violence field. And some of the indicators that they might be good at that or not go to that you were you were telling a story about a recruit, that when when faced with USA for scenarios essentially killed everyone present. Why do you. Think that was was there any with was that just a like? No, it was either go or Nogo, and there was no throttling in between for, for them. Or was it? Well. Was that? I don't know and that particular case, I don't know. But it was a good thing. I think we can agree that we caught that early before recruit academy. Graduation. Because that would be a very, very bad thing to put somebody on the street. That had that kind of temperament and, you know, and I didn't I didn't see her losing hit or you know, like, like some of the police videos. I've seen somebody screeching at the suspect over the top of gun that kind of thing where you could tell there there's a loss of motion control there. But in this case, just not suited for law enforcement. I don't know if it was intellectually, emotionally, mentally, whatever. The case may be could not make the proper decision at the right time. And, you know not everybody's cut out for everything we had. I don't wanna get too specific. But let's say we had a chief one forcement officers scenario in my locality. And one of the guys that had the job in the past really nice dude, it would be kinda like your grandpa, you know, nice dude. Everybody likes him friendly to the public etcetera etcetera. You never met my grandfather, I can tell right now. So anyway, sorry, you we're going to go with my we're going to go with my OPA, then there you go, one wonderful dude. But in this case guy was horrible cheap orange cheap one officer because he couldn't make tough decisions. He didn't have leadership skills. He didn't hold people accountable didn't make good long-term planning decisions. You know, in my mind algae is a love my mom, she was wonderful lady saintly, and, but she would also be a horrible chief on force officer. Not everybody can do everything one of the speeches. I give recruits when I did that sort of thing was, there's a lot of people on the planet. Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa Martin Luther King. You know I can just name off name every name after name, you know, who were wonderful, people made tremendous difference in, in other people's lives and actually changed. You know, some of our perceptions of how the Uman racia- live that sort of thing. But one of the things they all have in common is, it'd be horrible street. Cops and doesn't make people who are good street. Cops better than other people. It just means people should go where their gifts, and our temperament are suited to, you know, I'm not a brain surgeon furry children. That's just the way it is. I just, imagine you with, like a, a medical mask, that has the much the mustache drawn over top of the mask, and it was the best thing ever. Now that image won't leave my head. So. And that kind of segues nicely into. Sort of something that I have been. Thinking about a little bit more mainly because of my friendship with Claude Werner, and, you know, all of the work that he has done on negative outcomes and things like that. And it seems to me and I'd like to get your opinion on this that one of the things that people really, really should be doing that. Not many people are doing is taking a real hard, look at who they are as human beings entailing, their self defense plans accordingly. And what I mean by that is, I mean, maybe not everyone should carry a gun, maybe abs-. Absolutely does that make sense? Absolutely the case. And I've done work with people on exactly that premise, you figure out, you know, or are they emotionally intellectually morally capable of doing that, is that something that, and if not, you know, I'm, I'm not making a value judgment. It is what it is. Is. But if you have a gun that you can't use them, you know, you might as well have a rabbit's foot because you might actually get some good luck out of rabbits. But, you know. I had a gal one time friend of mine that because of her circumstances, she had picked up a stock or, you know, she used to be with the district attorney's office. And she was animal opposed to gun, she'd already made that decision adamantly opposed the guns, but she needed a personal security plan and it's not my job to push guns on her. You know, she had grandkids over to the house. So, you know, she was worried about kids with guns, which I don't think enough, people worry about yet of an issue near and dear to my own heart, you know. Yeah, so we came up with the personal security plan for her. You know, I'm like, look, your backyard prowler haven, your, your porch light on the back porch is burn out. You know what are we doing here? So we came up with a good, you know, beat that locks landscaping lighting, Scherf, ir handhelds pepper spray and. And dry. Chemical kitchen fire sniggers, and some training on, on how to respond how to set up and I think she had a really workable for her personal security plan for home defence. That was a completely solid. And, you know, and if she didn't run into I don't know, cartel hit men with machine guns coming through our door. She actually had a pretty good. Workable plan for defendant herself. Independent home. Right. Well in its, it seems to that maybe. And to be very clear, because I know people are going to try and take this out of context, I absolutely believe every single person should have the right or excuse me, shouldn't have the right does have the right to have a firearm without government involvement. That was the intention, and that's how it is. And there's a lot of things that have been done after the fact that I don't agree with at all. So I'm not saying that. I think right. Should be limited even a little bit. What I'm saying, though is that not everyone should make the decision that they make. Because I think it's made inside of a vacuum. And then the other thing, too, is that I don't think enough people really understand what. A limited use case, the gun is at times is that am I doing a poor job of expressing that? But like the gun only solves gun problems. You know. Absolutely. There you can't shoot people a little bit, utilizing a gun is, is an act of deadly force. And, you know, even if you don't have shots fired in many places like here here in Kansas. We don't have brandishing per say that other places have. But if I put another human being in reasonable fear of death rate bodily harm that's an aggravated assault. So if I pull a gun on another human being, I had better be in a scenario where I it can justify it. Because. You look at, like a self defense shooting. Let's say it involves a death. You have a homicide. That is a murderer under the law, and less. It is justified by the circumstances, self defense. You know, so you what you have done is committed a crime that is. Basically forgiven or overlooked because circumstances are that it was legitimate under, you know, the, the defense rules at the state, you're in, and my particular state. If you were going to pull a gun on somebody display, a handgun say from concealed carry to ward off some sort of situation. It better be a situation where you were under reasonable fear death rate, Bali harm or, you know, you are, you are innocent area where you're seeing those pre criminal assault indicators. You can justify the hey, I believe that this was a robbery about happen. Whatever you can't just pull a gun for a lot of the reasons I have seen people pull guns, you know, when I was going to say, and I think that that's actually an interesting conversation that we can have this next segment. I gotta go to break right now. We're we're, we're talking with Chuck haggard. You're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to Belichick radio brought to you by lucky dot com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this. So you don't have to this brought to you by big tax outdoors dot com. Big Tex outdoors dot com, the best place for you to find all your everyday carry needs at the absolute best prices maybe need all the lumens from sure-fire at the lowest price.

One hundred percent hassle free returns all that. And more and best of all big Tex outdoors, com has like he's a good man and thorough. I like everybody likes like and you'll like to visit big, Tex outdoors dot com today and find out what happens when every customers friend not just an order 'em before the break. You were. You were sort of saying that. People can't just go pointing guns and other people for a lot of the reasons why they do that. Yeah. Yeah. In it, it really behooves you particularly, where you live. Because that's I mean, you know, wherever you go there, you are kind of thing, where you're more likely to get into something. I will if I'm gonna travel, I research, the laws along the way what can I do in different scenarios, am I going from a state that has a standard ground law for one of a better term to one where you have made a Tory retreat? That's important annot, one of one of our good friends was called me up here. Couple of years ago and was in a scenario where he went out to his vehicle and somebody was in the middle of burglarizing his vehicle, and he was in a situation where he could get his hand on his gun. But at that point, he was like. Can I use a gun? In this scenario, you know what basically what am I doing here? He hadn't thought about what the law is state was for that scenario, and what he was legally allowed to do not do, as far as that goes by recall correctly, ordered the guy a car told him to get the hell out of there called the police made a report that kind of thing. You know, get a description when he wasn't sure can I you know, if I put this guy on the ground at gun point, you know, Kim, I do that, that legally allowed to my state would if he says, no. Now what? You know what do I do? Kinda some of these things that are entirely forseeable. We really need to wargame a head of time. So that we got answers to these questions. Well, and it seems like to that a lot of people. So what you just said, we really need to wargame these ahead of time, so that we have answer these questions. The problem is that quite a few people that I know not necessarily our peers, but, like people that are getting into it, when I ask them about utilizing firearm for self defence. It's somewhere along the lines of, well, if I need to shoot someone and it's like in it's very like broad scenario, and there's no there's no ambiguity involved, and there's no room for the don't shoot yet as Craig Douglas would call it. You know. Yeah. So I totally get it. So how do we how, and what should people be thinking about them? Exactly foreseeable circumstances that they might get themselves in. Is it possible? I could walk out the my car, and if I myself in Corrie wondering progress. That's one of the things that maddens me about people even guns in the cars, I've had more than one case where will, you know, it's my right? I could leave the gun in the car. They can't take the gun in the store. Let's say and they don't have the gun locked up in something secure in the car. So they just leave the gun in the car, and then they go out to their car and the car burglars in their car with their gun right now. What? Right. Well, they didn't see that one coming. You know, one of the things I find maddening lately, is the number of people who post online. I don't eat pepper spray. I've got a gun. Yeah. Those are two completely different tools. You know, that's like saying, I don't need vise grips. I got a screwdriver the hell did you just? Say, yeah. Yeah, it if you analyze scenarios that we can get ourselves in the likelihood of a particular scenario happening like are you more likely to be involved in active shooter situation, or be involved into somebody's breaking into your car? You're a lot more likely to walk out in the middle of night. Find a bad guy in your car, then some of these other, you know, farfetched ninja tax and areas people daydream about any really need to have the tools in the plan ahead of time in order to handle it correctly. Otherwise, you were gonna end up one Claude call on a negative outcome. Well, in so it's funny too, because people are like, well, why would you go out and confronts, them when this breaking in your car? And I can I can absolutely. I can absolutely tell people for certain that it is impart. It is entirely possible to walk up to your vehicle. No matter how hard you're aware on your vehicle, and suddenly encounter someone at your driver's door from your back, bumper that you never saw them there until maybe Christo there, there. And now, it's like okay here, you are, you know. Well in, in the case that was talking about a couple of minutes ago. Dude was leaving for the morning pre-dawn and hey, dudes in my car. He was he wasn't going out to confront carber, or it was what, you know, in the military, they would call a meeting engagement. Nobody was looking for contact. It just happened. And those those scenarios happen all the time happen all the time. You don't get this big flare where, you know, like Bank robbery type thing, dude, walks in with the ski mask and announces loudly. This robbery standing deliver, you know way more ambiguity to that. I mean it'd be nice if it were that obvious. Oh, yeah. Sure would be, you know, it sure would be. But it's not how it works in real life. Now that not. No, not typically that would be the real world equivalent of shooter ready. Standby. You know, and absolutely shooter ready standby, not saying it never happens, but it doesn't happen very often, you know. So you mentioned pepper spraying, and that's something else, too, that a lot of people, I don't think consider, as you know, if you look at the statistics, a lot of the violence, that is likely to be done to us is likely to be done to us by people. We know personally or even related to by blood. And. I don't think maybe enough people consider that as well. And there was there's a friend of ours, that I won't get into details or specifics, but needed you lies force against a close family member. Had the gun been the only option that would've would've looked a lot different than it did. But luckily, pepper spray was available and would was utilized effectively. Yeah. Absolutely. And, you know, I know I know the case you're talking about that was absolutely the right coal. And you know would have been. You know, at tragic news event, otherwise if it just gonna guns. Yeah, you know, one of the things I point out because so many people know you know, it's such a famous case can use the names Zimmerman, you know, and he can run a Trayvon Martin if he had been able to do the smart things and pepper spray Trayvon and back off and wait for the cops show up with we even know who George Zimmerman was the answer is no, you never heard about that incident because it wouldn't have turned into what it turned into. And, you know, I've seen people argue whales just by shooting, you know, he wanted court. But at what cost, you know, hundreds of thousands of dollars legal fees lost house marriage broke up. He's virtually employable you know if if you take the job someplace, you gotta worry about protesters showing up at what cost in anytime you can avoid that kind of thing, something I've noticed in. In my years to do this that if you use. Enough force at a low level early enough that you often don't have to use more force later to dig yourself out of a hole. You see this police work. A lot, one of the most glaring ones if people can pull up as Kyle in Keller shooting, where when that car stop, I, I'm sorry to interrupt you. Check theoretically, I need to do that. We're going to run overtime later on, if I don't we're gonna talk about Dan Keller when we get back. You're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to radio. Brought to you by lucky dot com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this, so you don't have to. So we're talking with Chuck haggard right now. We're gonna get into enough force early enough and you're gonna you're gonna bring up the Kyle Keller murder, and please continue. So, you know, it's easy to find that video online really tragic outcome. Really, really tragic outcome. And. Sorry. People go and buy a mountain bikes. Now, now, that's okay. It's a it's a busy area next to the Oregon trail. Hey, you have died of dysentery, anyway, continue. No. I actually just walked through the ruts of the real, organ trail, no kidding. That pretty cool. I'm just happy that I made the joke I made because every every child of the eighties knows exactly what I mean. Yep. Keller. So if you look at what what he was based with if he had deployed, oh, see early. Maybe used his ass baton effectively would that would've never degenerated into a running gunfight between two cars in which he lost. Yeah. You know, anytime it goes, the guns, the magic BB could hit you and you're done. So anytime I can keep it from going to guns. I'm gonna keep it from going to guns that, that, you know, if you read your son sued that's a smart thing to do is win the battle before the battle and win the battle without fighting the battle that, that's you know that's the smart thing to do. Didn't killer is a police scenario and a lot of people are like, well, that's you know, the cops, I think it absolutely applies in different scenarios. I've seen in civilian self-protection, conceal carry things like that. Zimmerman being a case if he had used enough force early enough. And a little bit better tactics that would have never degenerated into shooting, and then where would he have been in his life without, you know, be hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hole, etc? Etcetera had called in color would've saved his own life by using enough force decisively, really Nuff and not let me get the guns, but you know, tragically in both cases that's not what happened when the other thing too. And this is, you know. I am observing, I am not criticising the dead because I'm not a big fan of criticizing the dead. But the force heated us, he did don't use affectively and even. At any level, not he didn't utilize verbal commands. If you're talking about ding Keller did not utilize verbal commands. Well, he lacked motion control. Got got way to end up didn't apply. See, I don't think tasers really say get didn't apply the con-. Well, and then didn't utilize any interpersonal tactics. Well, he was a big dude. He literally could have grabbed that guy just flattened him. And but he didn't decisively do any of that. Yeah. And even when it went to guns, I wanna say he emptied a magazine in reloaded and correct me if I'm wrong. 'cause I it's it's been a minute since I've, I've watched it. But every one of those rounds is a potential fight stopping hit and the only ground, he put on that guy was, you know, low below the diaphragm as Tom givens you know as famous quoting what the PL shop, though, the diaphragm do. After they're shot. They're whatever they were doing before they were shot there. Yep. So it's kind of failure at every level once again, not criticizing the dead because he paid for it. He paid for it. But observing, you know. Well, and I don't wanna. Not criticizing the dead. But if we don't a or these things then they died in vain. Yeah. No. He who knows history doomed to repeat it that Santana guy was pretty smart. Yeah. And I don't want, you know, I don't want that to be being or any of them, quite frankly, we learned from right? So if you're going to. Being in the personal protection. Field. And I say, personal protection, not in a not in an executive protection sense. But in a what most people consider self defense sort of hobby, or whatever, and I think of it more like personal protection. Being able to. Acutely judge your own strengths and weaknesses being able to think? About ambiguous scenarios versus just cut scenarios in being able to act decisively win. It's important and also with skill. Would you say that kind of oils everything down into what we will be able to do really kind of does really kind of does too many people fail to dirty Aries advice on knowing your limitations? And that takes them real, honest introspection for people to do that. And sometimes it's very uncomfortable. One of the failings of the human race, that we often fail to do that sort of thing. Yeah. Yeah. And I can, you know from my own personal experience. And so you've known me the entire time that I have been working inside of this industry. And some of the thoughts and ideas that I had when I first started out, I look back on them now. And go, wow. That was really dumb. I'm really embarrassed by those. And, you know, I'm, I'm sure I hope, at least, because if not that means I stopped. Stopped advancing my practice of this particular art. But, like I hope that five six years from now, I'll be able to look back at this time from some of that was still pretty dumb. John, in it's, it's not comfortable. I it's not comfortable and sometimes it's even ups, you know, upsetting. But, like that's what we need to be able to do. Absolutely. Absolutely. If you're not if you're not continuing to all the person, you're stagnant, you know, and things like swamp water stagnant. That's, that's not a good place to be right. So we got a couple minutes left. You're going to be teaching at Pauley palooza five. Yeah. I am. I am do you know what you're presented yet. Or did you just know you're presenting something it looks like it's probably going to be a block of my small pistol skills, and maybe integrating, though, see into the muck Paradyne but, you know, that's always change. So, but that's, that's where I think I'm gonna be which, you know, particularly the second part of that, integrating, those into the managing context paradigm would be exactly the sort of thing, the software skills, you, and I were talking about earlier, that people need to work on, you know, be. On jus- pistol skills, tactical carving, things like that. Yeah, what's the famous quote from Craig? If, if you walk into a shower and can't keep, and there's twelve other dudes there. And you can't keep six of the twelve from having their way with you. You don't need another carbon course. Something to Canada. Carbon cores probably the last thing. Yeah. I cleaned that quote up a lot a lot. But that's that's kinda thought there. So if you guys are interested in Pauley palooza weekend of August seventeenth. It's going to be the final final Polly lose ever. All of the funds all the trainers are donating their time. And all the funds are going to benefit the children of Paul Gomez was instrumental in a lot of things that people are doing today inside of the train and community melody, and I are going to be presenting some of our impaired material out there. And if you're interested in buying a ticket to that you can go to tiny, you are L dot com forward slash Paul. The letter e palooza, PA, L, A, and the number five, and that will take you to the event, bright sign up page, but tickets are available now and it's going to be an awesome, awesome time. I highly recommend it to everyone. Now if people want to train with you outside of that event where can they find you Chuck? WWW agile, tactical dot com. Is my website? I have a Facebook page, F L training, and consulting gonna calendar up relatively up to date. You know, a bit of a date, but I've got currently up to date on the on the site and got things close it in both places. Nice. Nice spend. So what would be one and then we gotta go. But like one final thought you would leave people with in sixty seconds or less. Yeah. A dirty Harry, I'll go back to him, and it's got to know his limitations women's gonna know their limitations be honest with yourself. Take stock of where you're at, and then look realistically, where you need to go, and I spend nice I appreciate it. Thank you again, for everything that you have done for me, in particular, as far as helping me along my own my own personal journey here, and also in the arm parent material tune. I don't think a lot of people realize this, but, but that course material was not created in a vacuum, and you were certainly one of the people that was instrumental in it being a thing, and we really, really appreciate that. So I appreciate the thought you know, this stuff is not it's not our own the physics of the universe. I think it's our job to pass it along. Yeah, man. Definitely, I think one of my favorite things that Pat Rogers ever said, Pat. I know was was dear to you as well. Is he he always said he never had an original idea in his life. He he was standing on the shoulders of giants, and even that he probably stole a buddy, you know, so little giant ever met. Yeah. Right. Yeah. That that is accurate. Anyway. I appreciate a Chuck enjoy the rest of your days. Or thank you for apologize to your dogs for me, interrupting their time. And I'll talk to you soon brother. Okay. My pleasure. All right. Yeah.

She wanted to go onto loss prevention and a work for our Home Office at American Eagle. She was thirty one. She had all kinds of plans but on the morning after Thanksgiving Black Friday the biggest shopping day of the year. Chris Cravey's phone rang at home. It was our other assistant manager saying Chris Ashes apartments on fire and we can't get her on the phone for close on as fast.

There's were realizing this was no accident. It was obvious that she had been beaten to the amount of blood that we found. And then we observe that her arms were bound behind her back and and her ankles were bound it looks. The detectives like actually had been fighting back against a truly vicious attack. She had been beaten and possibly tortured. We later discovered that her naked man slipped only that the fire looked suspicious so veteran arson investigator Wallace Hood.

What'd you see saw a vehicle park there that I'd never seen before? What was that it? It was a black guy holder infinity to them back over to the observance ex cop that seemed worth noting. Did a stay there for a long time. It was there when I left for work about Seven forty detectives also talked to a neighbor. Live directly below Ashley. He had heard noises a heavy breathing coming from. She's apartment just before eight. Am few minutes later. The fire alarm going off Water started coming down and says there's apartment that's when the neighbor saw a black Infiniti g thirty five driving away armed with this new information deal. I went back to Alexis Torres. I asked her if she knew anyone or fascinating. You anyone that drove a Infiniti g thirty five. I never gave her a color simply asked her about g thirty I five Alexis said No. After he's done asking me questions I walked outside and sat down on the brick and it was Chris that was there that would be Chris Crazy. Ashley's boss at American Eagle. Alexis told him that police were asking about Infiniti sedan and Chris made a beeline for detective studio. I approached him and I said I know who's car Yar asking about. And and he says I just WanNa make you aware that I have a former employee that drive a INFINITI G thirty five. Her name he said was Carter. Peter Carter Cervantes that business like assistant manager. Who worked with Ashley and so then I ask them what color is the? GM thirty five that she drove and he mentioned that it's a black one. What was that like to hear that? Well that beats here in the colored red or white and by the way Chris told detectives Carter Carter left American Eagle because she was fired so. Do filed that away and sorted through the crime scene and talked to witnesses and the day that began at eight thirty that morning didn't end until one am. Did you get any sleep. No Sir. I didn't the story about Carter. Savant is under black. Infinity was just bugging him. Well I'm thinking about the case and I'm thinking word I go from here might have tossed and turned all night thinking about that but something thing inside him said Nope. I'M NOT GONNA be able to get any sleep on us. We'll go back out there and see what I can find. Wouldn't be as I wild. Goose Chase he had Carter's arturs address so we are Saturday morning. He drove over there and I saw a black infinity back Dan right in front of an apartment but he didn't knock on her door. I was going to go ahead and basically sit here and watch the vehicle to see if it moved for more than four hours. He sat in his car are cold but patient and then about eight. Am Saturday you saw the lights of the infinity flash as if somebody was unlocking remotely I see the male enter the driver seat vehicle. I then see a female enter the passenger side of the black infinity. They drove off. The detective followed all owed and after a few minutes the infinity bold into of all places the human mall so there they are. They're going back to the place. Where Ashley really worked? Where the American Eagle was? Yes but what would they be doing all that was that was the million dollar question coming up I ask him. What are you doing here at the mall? He said that he had dropped his girlfriend off to pick up some papers a routine errand or something else he didn't. NCAA lesser did anybody see her lesser And on the Saturday morning after Black Friday two thousand fourteen homicide detective Jerry Sedillo followed a black infinity into the parking lot of the law. He watched as the passenger a woman dressed in dark disclose headed inside. She fit the description he'd be given a twenty five year. Old Carter Cervantes a former coworker of actually Harris. The male driver driver stayed in the car so deal called his partner. Earning fate asked him to check up on the guy and when I approached the car then the person identified themselves self as David Mallory. David Mallory was Carter's live in boyfriend you to was a former employee of American Eagle. I asked him what he doing here at the mall. He said he had dropped his girlfriend off to pick up some papers on Air Apostol where she was at manager so perhaps it was just APP APP. David giving Carter a ride to pick up some paperwork at her new job aeropostale so decided to go inside. The mall was open but the stores were still closed. And I happen to go up to pasta and there is a A manager that's actually in there. Working and I was able to confirm that Carter Cervantes do not work for hammocks. He hasn't even novitiate as well. So much of that story. Yes sir. Scipio turned his attention to finding. Carter's Avantis no luck. You didn't see her at all and lesser. Did anybody see her lesser so so deal had a disgruntled employee coming back to the mall where she'd been fired hired. Her boyfriend was telling lies about a job. She didn't have an a car. Looked bikers had been spotted at the scene of a murder to take pates still. I've had David Mallory out in the parking lot. And he's looking for a reason to hold him decided he had a driver's license but he didn't have his driver's lessons with him. Reason enough us. He arrested Mallory and brought them in for questioning. But Carter seem to have vanished wasn't anywhere in the mall but then police went to her apartment complex at their she was now where was she in the apartment complex. Well she initially was in the In the laundry room. 'cause you please. She agreed to answer questions without a lawyer down at the station. Eagle by Carter or Carol Patter Kamau. She'd switched her dark closed for bright. Pink scrubs Do Nothing for work. I had a job opportunity. American Eagle outfitters. Oh Yes Carter's American Eagle connection detectives to do already heard a thing or two about that. Carter had worked at the Fort Worth store for about four months and it was business. Like but unlike Ashley. She wasn't a very friendly assistant manager. She did however make an impression on some younger clerks. Like Weiser Sean Toll. Carter is very smart very deep. She was good at reading people and knowing how to converse with thank you tell that she was well. Educated just had a lot more to her than most sales retail managers. Do but detective. So you knew something else about Carter and David Mallory. Something very important. Remember that burglary at American Eagle three months earlier Carter and David Mallory were the primary suspects and Ashley. Harris was the one who discovered the money missing and when actually came into open opened the store she found the safe open actually knew it was Carter who closed the night before and when she showed her boss the security video view of the burglary. She he pointed out the Monitor and she said that's David Mallory. I said WHO's David Mallory and they said it's Carter's boyfriend amass was easy actually figured Carter Ryder set up the burglary and David carried it out. Carter got fired. David sort of disappeared and both heard that it was Ashley who identified mm-hmm They hadn't been charged not yet but the case was basically actively being investigated when this happened and now three months later. Here Chris Carter talking to the police who were growing suspicious that she and her boyfriend were connected to Ashley's murder. Why am I here? Well which do you started off easy and see so we raise Morello or from Lubbock. Your family's still there. Mom Dad Brothers Sisters Brothers by deputy sisters and they all have you seen your mom and dad and awhile now. I've talked to him every day on text message and snapchat but I haven't been home more friendly family questions. And where did you go to school. Hoekstra Phenom University so. Do asked about Thanksgiving small. Would you make and I made Turkey A and they're stuffing mashed potatoes and green bean casserole and this cabbage bacon salad that my mom really likes to make but I don't think David liked it very much. This wasn't really small. Talking detective was paying close attention. All right so let's start with this morning all right this morning. What time do you get up about? Seven thirty cutting. I'm in what happens in and then we talked and I went back to sleep when I woke up. He wasn't there okay. Eat hurt enough. I know that's a lie. You know it's not what I know. It's a lie why because I saw so you come out of your apartment and get in the passengers fuel. That car and I saw him drive out of there. That's why I know it's a lie. A deal was tough. Your Car Carter. Savant wasn't giving an inch coming up. If Carter's lies weren't reason enough for suspicion suspicion. This was she starts wiping down the bottle. She was afraid that we're going to attain her DNA. And what was this all about. And who was it for. There's an actual human grave that's been Doug Christie fresh grave when dateline continues. Hey It's Chris assays sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day-to-day onslaught of news and take a broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week on my podcast. Why is this happening happening? We're exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think of it is climate change will be the twenty th century. What maternity west of the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration listen to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics are getting more trouble. Join me for wisest happening. New episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts and it was late Saturday morning the day after Black Friday? Twenty thirty five year old Carter Savant was talking to detectives at lying through her teeth. I know what I did this morning. I know where I was. I know where Wing detectives certainly knew where she went. The he will in law but she kept insisting she'd been at home all morning here about to make the biggest mistake of your life. You understand me. But she's still wouldn't confess to US wouldn't budge. I got up. I went and put the laundry in and I went and checked the email. That's all you found me on the line. Then from the detective stepped out of the room. She did something interesting maybe incriminating. It took a drink puts the bottle down. She picks it up again before she can take the second drink she stops mid air. Spills watering herself puts the bottle down and just stares at had it for about ten to fifteen seconds she then reaches over and grabs a tissue from the table and starts wiping down the bottle. And then wipes down the mouthpiece. What does that say to you well that she was afraid that we were going to attain her DNA from the bottle after that police? Let her go David Mallory too but detectives had a theory cooking. The Carter and David Killed Ashley out of revenge for being fired for the burglary. But they also wanted Ashley's she's keys to the American Eagle because they were planning to rob the store again. Those keys were the only thing missing from the murder scene and went store manager. Chris Chris gravy looked at his surveillance video from earlier that morning. He told police that they wanted to hear. Describe what you saw the videotape. Somebody dressed in breath dark clothes. What their face wrapped walk right up to the store and try to get in with keys that he said was Carter trying trying to pull off another bigger burglary? Police just knew one day after killing actually and taking her keys. Carter was trying to break into American Eagle where this time tens of thousands of dollars the Black Friday prophets were in the safe but the key didn't fit because after Asti was murdered. Chris Crazy changed. The locks wasn't gonNA take any chance on whether it'd be a deposit or them harming somebody else in the store when you tell locked them out. Good detectives pulled the surveillance video and look at this Carter. Slipping away from the mall. Having already changed from her sweat. CLOTHES GOES INTO PINK. SCRUBS had to be trying to fool potential trackers. They thought this was after she would have spotted. Police talking to David in the parking lot and then she. She walked all the way on over the next few days. Police got a warrant for Carter and David Cell phones that camera APP so useful cool. Well we learned that they had conducted surveillance at Ashes apartment weeks before that that a picture of her apartment Her actual door to her apartment and they had pictures of her vehicle in the white dodge. Ram Pickup in early December. Two thousand fourteen Carter Savant. Doesn't David Mallory were arrested and charged with the murder of Ashley harassed. Cold Comfort for Ashley. Sister it's just such a loss and it so pointless. I just don't understand how people could do that. Separately the cases against them we're virtually identical asked assistant. Da Kevin Russo led the prosecution a that actually diener assistant from the witness stand. Detective Sedillo help lay out the case. Surjit her apartment parmenter vehicle and or find her seat. That's the sales receipt showed them. Aw Purchases on Carter's credit card. She had purchased to shovels. She had purchased a tarp. She had purchased gloves. Why I was fat significant because of a discovery way out in Texas Scrub Discovery Worthy of a horror movie? The the key to finding is right there on Carter and David cellphones each other longitude latitude coordinates and led us to to a remote area near Abilene. What was there As soon as we got to where spot says you're there we look up and there's an actual human grave sweats been Doug I grieve. Fresh grave prosecutors believed the original plan was to kidnap Ashley. Kill her and put what her body in that grave. She was killed in her apartment. The prosecutor thought because she fought so hard. What is that they in fact? Investigators believed Ashley. Harris was pistol whipped so when this block nineteen was found in the black infinity prosecutor. You had it tested. The results are both sad conclusive came back positive with Ashley's DNA on the gun so that was very significant. Can't what's this was not hearing all. This was so hard and Ashley's mother other Monica. I'd love ones like nope so I went and I went back into the room. Remarkable is and. She was consoling me. And she's pulling me. The brutality of the murder was never far from the prosecutor's minds. I just thought how painful and how awful the last few minutes of her life and absolutely terrifying absolutely terrifying. Ah even that said even that appear to be part of the plan. This wasn't just about robbery. Or even revenge said prosecutor Security Russo was Discussions Carter Savant has had had with people where she expressed Certain I guess you can call them. Fantasies fantasies involving killing people. Lies are shown. Paul Remembers one such discussion at work. And he's just us and we were folding clothes and she mentioned isn't that she had thought about killing someone before and whether or not she could watch them die. As if the murder wasn't shocking enough prosecutors were pretty sure Ashley's Ashley's murder was a thrill. Kill plan by a sadistic young woman. Thought she was smarter than everyone else. But tiny meek Carter's avantis admitted none of that. She still had a plan concocted all by herself to explain why she too was a victim coming up a vicious killer. You wanted to see the death penalty yet. Don't here's what I want or a young woman forced into a life of crime And when people talk about the trial of Carter Savannah's this is what they remember. Carol set against the advice of her turns Carter survivors took the stand. was that criminal mastermind years at a helpless victim. She gets up on the stand and it was insane. Carter said it was all her boyfriend. David Mallory controlling every aspect of her life. Free this is where Carter's defense truly began. She told the jury she was a woman enslaved by her sadistic sadistic lover. He's telling me what to drink with each. And and and he had that gun the glock she said used like a threat and it scared her not feel comfortable with that weapon to tell the jury she was asleep at home. When Ashley was being murdered she didn't know where David had gone? But somehow he wound up with a set of American Eagle Keys. She's on the lawn and then handed me a pair of American Eagle and he said lutely brilliant over and then she said he pulled out the glock any in just pointed at me yes across his body. I shook my head said you. There's somebody sitting outside you can go in. And so that's why she tried to rob the store. She said it was that or be killed. Just a couple of hours before she showed up on the security video she said David made it very clear. There're just how far he would go to make sure absolutely sure that she would do what he demanded down to the during the night before the break in attempt she said David brought strange men into their apartment. She you heard an angry voice above her then. Her story got even more a harrowing down raincoats. At not raped twice. She said sobbing by two different men. Prosecutors Kevin Russo Ashley. Diener seem to take it back as the rest of the courtroom. I know what I think. This is not true and they needed to regroup fast. This is the biggest lie she's ever told. We know that. But you never know what the jury's thinking Carter had an an explanation for just about everything even that moment during her interrogation when she wiped the bottle she wasn't wiping off her DNA. No she said the smell from the bothell reminded her being raped and she said that she suddenly overcome with the the smell of semen in the in the air and it had something to do with drinking out of this bottle of water and I thought now that that took some work. That is one heck of a lie and it was at that point that I put my pen down and said I am not writing this. I'm not going to write this down. His voice dripping with Sarcasm Prosecutor Russo took her story apart. It showed the jury a picture talk about various things. That's the one is laying there beside you go. Then he drew down into the heart of Carter Story. Just who were for. Those mysterious rapists all spoke way them described as your in here but said the prosecutor. That's exactly what she was suggesting if she was going to try to play the car and I was GonNa make spell it out as I don't know where his comments I associated with a certain type of speech has the right gap but if she was hoping to play to some random jurors racial bias. She guessed wrong. The jurors didn't believe it not for a second they. They found her guilty in less than two hours. As for David Mallory. His attorneys argued he had nothing to do with the murder he was involved with Carter. Yes but not with any killing. The jury didn't buy that either rendering a guilty verdict. In no time at all the verdicts were some consolation Lows who loved Ashley Harrell's. She saw the pastern. Everybody even when you couldn't see she she could see it. She had such a big heart in. This world is worse off both David. Mallory Carter's avant has received mandatory sentences of life in prison with no possibility of parole. It wasn't enough Ashley's MOM and Stepdad. You wanted to see the death penalty yet. Don't do what I wanted to what Monica wanted in put. It wasn't to be and now now. They claim to memories of their actually. Tell me it was the last time you saw your daughter physically in person and ah about a week before she died Ashley had invited Monica play. Bingo Monica was busy. I almost said no but something told her to stop what she was doing and go at always she glad she did. And I walk into the Bingo Hall and God their belt little girls and I smile at her going for and I kissed this side of her neck. And tell her tell you remember every syllable every moment of that day don't you. Yes these days Monica is is making new memories at the Bingo Parlor. Remember how skittish she was around. Ashley's girlfriend that I no longer now. Their family family. When WANNA can I go and get her nails done they always say oh your daughter so pretty she never correct them her? She's concerned.

Monday July sixth as cases of COVID, nineteen continue to rise nationwide and businesses continue to shudder. It's getting harder and harder to imagine what the world will look like post pandemic, but one thing seems certain. There will be gap stores. At least that's the plan. The clothing retailer is pledging to open twenty thousand stores by May of next year to boost its chances for success. The gap is making another equally unexpected. Play a big new partnership with Kanye West last week, the company announced that the Rapper and entrepreneur will bring his popular yeezy brand gap stores. The retailer will introduce. It's easy line. In the first half of twenty twenty one gap is betting on the new line bringing in one billion dollars annually by two thousand Twenty Six New York Times reports the ten year. DEAL IS A. A shot in the arm for gap, which had been struggling well before the pandemic global sales have been sinking over the past two years, but gap stock jumped forty two percent, following the announcement in a statement gap announced that the new line would deliver modern elevated basics for men, women and kids at accessible price points west will also oversee elements of Yeezy gap, merchandising and digital design. The partnership is a homecoming of sorts for west who worked at a gap stores teenager as part of the announcement giant mural, featuring a message from west, appeared on Chicago gap store last weekend in it West says that he used to shop at that very store, which is located along the windy city's magnificent mile. Gap is in the only fashion retailer looking for its next move, but competitor American Eagle outfitters or Eyo is taking a very different route late last month, the company unveiled a new brand called unsubscribe. It's the fourth brand in its portfolio which already includes American Eagle airy and Todd Snider. UNSUBSCRIBE MAY BE THE ANTI EASY GAB it's launch was no splashy national rollout. Rollout instead the company opened a single store in the seaside town of East Hampton on Long Island, according to women's wear daily, which broke the story. More stories may come later, but for now unsubscribe clothing can be purchased from that location. Only that means no web sales either the brand's website will be used to showcase brand content, but not to sell it. So what beyond small-scale sales can consumers expect from unsubscribe well, the brand is the latest player in slow fashion, which embraces sustainable manufacturing and a more thoughtful approach to buying clothing. The movement is a rebuke of fast fashion in which manufacturers pump out cheaper versions of the latest styles at a breakneck pace fast, fashion brands often use underpaid outsource, labor and environmentally damaging manufacturing practices according. According to a report in box, a recent McKinsey report found that younger consumers want their companies to reflect their values. UNSUBSCRIBE products are consciously created according to the WWE D report. The new brand will feature just two collections per year of its private label. It also offer a small selection of similarly sustainable brands like Beija Melissa Joy Manning Mother's price. Points range from five dollars. To dresses costing more than five hundred dollars American, Eagle outfitters is taking its time revealing when and how it will grow its latest retail brand, but the company is also coming off a record breaking year with annual revenue, topping four billion dollars, and while it had a bigger first-quarter loss than expected this year, online sales have been strong on a quarterly earnings call a company representative, said sales reopen stores or nearly reaching their normal levels, according to a report in chain store age. As brick and mortar clothing retailers look to the future. They're searching for the best way to get customers. Shopping again is at the exclusive sustainable approach of unsubscribe or the brand changing star power of Yeezy gap or both. After all in this business. One size definitely does not fit all.

And I'm not telling you about it because it was disturbing so it's still like in my my like adenine mind's eye which is also really disturbing but continue well anyway so one thanks for being a good sport Thanks for being an amazing friend because I I would. Frankly it was either melody will do this or I'm not calling any other person last minute so like you were at. The top of my list is far as people that I would inconvenience. That's just so you know. Yeah you're welcome so I guess my question so for those. That don't know Melanie I'd have worked together for many years Where both parties citizens defense research melody is the better part and actually runs the company. And I just SORTA I go places and do things but I guess my first question for you in all your years doing this and you've been doing longer than I have What do you think is now? Let me let me rephrase that. Do you think that people Lose sight of the fact that this is supposed to be fun on some level or another L. absolutely I think there's a list sight of the fact that it's supposed to be fun and they also The the more they get into it they it can be like anything You know you can get obsessed with anything. You can get consumed with anything but because of the seriousness of the topic Particularly when we're talking about self defense They start to lose fact or lose sight of the fact that there are other things in their life that are equally or even more important than Than whether or not they had a gun or training with a gun or are You know preparing to defend themselves. It can it doesn't always that can especially if people really get into it. Kinda be all consuming to almost a a detrimental to degree. I believe in. What's what's sort of something that I have noted. As I've gotten more into this one I got started. It was a thing that was like Super Fun. And like all my God. I have the best job in the world. I get to do this thing. And like my job is great. I have a I have an awesome job But is it got deeper into. It's sort of like you said and it got more serious. Just the amount of fun that I was having dealing Where for very different reasons and didn't seem as innocent as they were when I started. But what is sort of a thing that I've noted as I look around? I is that we almost like hammer the fun out of it. When we're talking with New People do yeah. You're kind of talking about two different things though I mean in your case because you know there are so many things that people enjoy that eventually they get into working and you know I there's not a thing I don't think there should be That if you WANNA kill the joy of something make it your job And so there is that there there is the aspect of okay now. I do this for a living just to pay bills and it becomes something that you can't just do just because you enjoy but you have to even days when you're not feeling into it and not super like Oh. This is something I really want to do today. And they have to do it. And that Kinda comes with killing a little bit of joy but you know that's something separate and you know we can certainly talk about that because I've done it too But on the other hand you know because that that is an act of of those of us who who go to go on to work in the industry as instructors and this is the very hard industry as you know They're really great things about it and then they're very difficult things about it But then on the other hand you've got people who who don't do. This is a job And they stuck the fun out of it themselves And like you said you know we talked to a Newbie or something and someone who's maybe just getting into firearms and just discovered that. Hey these can be a lotta fun and you know and there are different types of shooting. Of course that people can do where where the fun remains You know you WANNA see a bunch of people having a lot of fun. Go to a well organized and well run you know. Us TSA match with a good attitude like there's just a fundamental good attitude of we are here to have fun and and from the from the I guess the club management down. There's a there's an attitude of like. Hey this is this is supposed to be fun and we are here to have fun. And don't bring your negative attitude around and you'll still see people having a lot of fun or you go to like a a youth you know Bo Vice thing or something along those lines and you'll see kids having fun. There still is fun to be had but it seems like you get around the the personal protection industry folk and you know as a Newbie. Okay Yeah I WANNA do this to you know to have fun but I also want to make sure that I'm doing it right to defend my family and stuff like that and all of a sudden it is like someone takes sand and pours it over your head and says the fun stops here it should be a T. shirt I in fact that should be a t shirt with With the picture So there's a mean at least a circle of our friends at floating around of of you from a from a picture that was taken at a range where you look on the happy. That's the only in fact. The title of this episode will be that picture with the glowing. Red Is the fun stops here. But no you're absolutely right though. It seems that that is is something that is just really sort of universal across the board We gotta go to break right now. We're we're talking with melody lower from Citizens Defence Research. And you're listening to well. Let's agree to you. Come back. Ballistic Radio brought to you by lucky under dot com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this.

So we're talking with melody lower from citizens defense research anywhere. You're saying that when you get inside of the personal protection industry. It's almost like there's this universal thing that occurs and and as you said the funds stops here you know and and to be clear. I know you're not painting with a a super broad brush because there are certainly instructors that do a great job of making their classes. Fun even despite Very serious subject matter but it does seem pretty prevalent In sign of all this. How how do you think we combat? Yeah and and I don't want to paint the super broad brush. I WanNa make sure that I'm giving credit cards. Were credited do that. There are like you said Lockton instructors who try and make their classes entertaining and And realized an element of fun at needs to be had But I think I'm speaking more to like the the the general attitude it. It's almost like if you're trying to have fun with this particular topic. You're you're almost disrespecting it somehow and There is a level of that. You know you certainly don't want to be Mocking it or taking light of the subject or You know having an air of of for Valley gotta a word yes `Voliti when it comes to the subject because it is an extremely serious subject but at the same time there has to be a a allowance for a little bit of. I also enjoy this because I think if we if we strip all of that away and we say that you can only take this exceptionally serious and and you can't enjoy it Then start losing people Or we start quickly you know quibbling over little things that ultimately you know don't matter and if we allow people to experiment and play for lack of a better word which I think is extremely important even for adults that we can get into that a little bit then We stop the creativity that allows the subject to continue to be interesting and Evolve well and I wonder you know so sitting here thinking about do you think that's a byproduct of trying to get people to understand the severity and possibility of negative outcomes inside of a self defense Or personal protection you know especially specifically talking about shooting right now inside of a a personal protection of event and that because folks are trying to you know get people to understand negative outcomes. It sort of bleeds over unintentionally I think there's a little bit of that I think there's there's some of that and I think also And that's that is if there's a if there's a reason to kind of you know dampen you know the statement and the and the fun that you can have. That would be a good reason. You know we've we've all been two classes where maybe someone's getting a little goofy or someone is getting a little bit too. You know Playful as it were and it's like okay At some point in time this could be dangerous if we allow this to continue. You know we can't allow people to to be doing things you know Just you know on impulse. And they're they're just have to be a level of of safety and respect the being paid you know there is that We also want to make sure that we are. We are Advocating for a level of seriousness in the subject matter. Itself right you know. We can't be joking about certain things that there are very serious. You know talking talking about you. Know taking human life and the reasons why would we would justify it? We take you live like those are not. Those are not topics that you want to sit around and and be frivolous with and and talk Carelessly about this is a very very serious topics and we want to make sure that they are addressed very seriously. You know but I think the other thing that becomes you know particularly when we get down to the to the shooting. Itself the shooting itself and the the things that we do within that shooting Activity alignment trigger. Press and draw stroke and and all these things you know if someone wants to even experiment or play with it at all and they go. Hey you know what I was just kind of fooling around the other day and I decided to you know close my left eye and you know hang backwards off the table and then I was having fun. Well you would never do that in a gun fight. No that's not the point you know And Are you trying to say that someone can get you wrote trainings value from going out to the range and just enjoying themselves and trying new things provided that they're being safe And just playing with different techniques and seeing what they like and seeing what. They don't If anything I think that when you like I said stop all manner of experimentation and fun and playfulness you. Ha You know kind of put a stop to some learning and advancement that people can do because just like when we were children. It doesn't really change. Just the method of it changes the little bit we learn by playing You know kids go out. And they play with each other and they learn they learn social interactions and they learn creativity and they. You know if you ever watched a couple of kids you know play with each other. They go imagine that this was happening. And then I'll do this and then you imagine that this is happening. I mean that's every forum talking about guns stuff ever you know. Imagine that this bad guy is coming out here and this is what happened. What do you do in response? You are playing. We don't call it that because we're grownups than we don't like to think of us as playing but it's a very It's an intricate. Part of how human beings learn so when we take that away and saying no oh you cannot play anymore and you cannot experiment and you cannot be creative within this you can only take my word for it because tact a tactical or it's you know whatever Then you're going to hamper that creativity. And we need to give people the permission may actually encourage them to play with the information that they have gotten. And yes sometimes they're gonNA come up with the wrong solution and they're gonNA come up with things that you're gonNA go WHOA Let's think this through because I'm the surface. I understand why you thought that this might work. But once you get through your you can determine that. Maybe this isn't the best course of action. Why but the fact that they're playing with bad information and the technique or whatever they're willing to try to mold and fit into whatever it is that they were envisioning is a really healthy sign that they are invested interested in the topic. Well so and what's what's funny. Is we even to acknowledge that the playing is how we learn? Because if you think of like preemies decision making and Visualization and stuff like that you know what to some people call it they call it. War Gaming You know in game is right inside of the description that I have somewhere. I want to go with this and I will go there as soon as break happens So right now. We're talking with melody lower from Citizens Defense Research. You're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to ballistic radio brought to you by Lucky. Dot Com and federal premium ammunition.

Everybody likes like and you'll like to visit big TEX outdoors dot com today and find out what happens when every customer is a friend not just an order so we're talking with melody lower from Citizens Defence Research and You know you were discussing the of play and learning and I know you're a big fan of Dan. Carlin's hardcore history podcast. I am as well And I was I'm realistic some of those. But I was listening to the one Is essentially the discussion of human existences entrance into the atomic age And I started listening to that again. Just because After all really is but I started listening to that because I listened to his new book on. The end is always near which you know if you're if you like history a little bit Get the book and Frankly get the Audio version of the book. Because Dan Carlin read his own book. And it's it's really well done but anyway the point Talking about you know how close we came to essentially destroying the world and we as a civilization but the people who are involved in that you know you look at like Eisenhower specifically You know he was a bridge player. like avid bridge player. And you know a lot of what you know. He was doing on the world political stage. You know in in in dealing with all this directly correlated to this game that he played You know in so we've got all of these this evidence that as far as like complex things like if you can learn it in the form of a game that is super handing Which brings me back to my point. Do you think that the gaming aspect of stuff like competitive shooting in general makes it easier to learn how to shoot better? Absolutely I think I think you're spot on We I mean like you said from the time that children are practically born we foster learning in them and we encourage learning and we actually see amazing strides in their learning when we make it into a game and I mean they they will tell you you know that play is absolutely essential to the development of healthy children healthy thought process. Because if you just do give anyone child or an adult just a set of rules very strict set of rules and you set them in you and you put them in an environment you say can only be. Hey with inside this set of rules and you give them no ability to to play and to think about the rules and apply them differently and be able to to you know mold them to their own situation and expand upon them. It becomes it. They don't learn anything at all. They stay strictly within those rules and then they come through and they do whatever it is that you tell them to do They repeat the test where they passed the test. And then they forget that information as soon as they as soon as their brain allows them to they they use it just enough to get through what they needed and then no more but the people who were allowed to you know master it and and play with it and crashed it how they need to and then go on and think about another scenario where. I did this over here but I'm GonNa do this over here You know they retain knowledge longer. They have a better mastery of that information and they perform better. So when you look at people who get into you know Gaming Sports with with firearms You know their ability to run a firearm at subconscious levels and you know I mean I is the context different of course. The context is different. But they're able to adapt much more quickly than people who never were allowed to to play at all Which is why when when you see you can t even really good shooters Who are never taken out of things like a like a static range you know they were only able to to you know face down range and shoot at target and they are good. They have really good accuracy they can. They can manipulate their pistol Very well they can handle it very well you put them into environment like a US TSA match and You know tell them to go for it and you start doing you start. Seeing them do things that that you are almost comical in their inability to handle the newness of the environment and and run there. And you know and it's okay if it's comical so that's the other part about all of this is ego we can get into that but you know when people invest so much ego. They stop playing. Because it's now it's very very serious about self image it's not about experimentation is about learning is about protecting This idea that they have been the south but you see them. You know. Forget how to do things like a magazine change or how to do malfunction clearing and what you know as they tried to transition from target to target they make they make mistakes which is okay. Making mistakes is part of playing part of experimenting provided you're not making them egregiously to harm anyone And they but they all come away going. Wow I learned so much and that was one of the best experiences and I had so much fun and all of those things are so good and they are necessary to making someone the best at something one at least better in so you were. There's actually technical term for the comical thing That you're you know highly technical term And I don't. I don't know that I've heard anyone discuss it as much But Goofy Shit. I believe is no in all seriousness though and I've seen I remember when the first US PSA match. I ever shot You were at like you. You took me to it and I remember seeing a guy Shoot strong hand only and you remember that and Nice Guy A lot of them that day. Yeah Super Nice Guy. But he was shooting two hands. there was part of the stage that Required strong hand only shooting and he literally jumped jumped in the air like turned in profile stuck a hand in his back pocket extended his arm out and was shooting like like Bullseye. You know just like randomly Didn't do very well if I remember correctly but The point was that that was like where did that come from? You know what I mean and so yeah and it's okay though like I didn't think anything militias it was. It was funny to watch and then I did funny goofy shed. And that's that's just okay. Spread under a table then. Also Oh yeah the others video of me just diving prone I think I did well on that stage if I recall but anyway the point though the point is you know it's fine it's fine. It's fine into goofy shit. I didn't do well on that. Stage actually did horrible But and in the Nice thing is that it can provide for that motivations who get you through the slums in in your own training regimen. You know just like Oh hey I had fun can and in fact. We're the things that sometimes people will say once they once they start taking this really seriously and they start working like actually working because if you are trying especially if you're trying to gain a level of of extreme mastery in it there will be times when you are going to have to do the things you're going to have to work at the things that are not fun anymore There are things that you stuff that you're going to have to actually not have fun and pay attention to those things and go to the range and work at them and it's going to suck and you're going to be like. I don't WanNa do this but this is my goal and so therefore I'm going to have to just put in the hours and do the work and I think that's where like a lot of people do start kind of going man. This just isn't fun anymore but I think that the people who do become the best and have to talk to them and confirm this but but just from talking to can we know quite a few very very like professional level shooters. They find ways to make it fun for them again whether they go back out and just put up a fun array of targets. And just you know just do silly stuff just because like you know I. I've always enjoyed this drill. So I'm just GonNa you know play around with this drill and see if I can tweak it a little bit or see if I can beat my last time or you know if I can do this standing on my head or whatever you know they find they find interesting ways to challenge themselves that are entertaining to them and not just not just work and I think that's what separates people from WHO who get burnt out and just go. You know what this isn't fun anymore and I don't want to do it anymore and people who go you know what I think he's sticking at this because you know or at least I've got this thing coming up that I've always had this match this match. I go to. That has always just been fun. It's a fun match. Choose or I go over here and I'm not doing this for the real. I'm doing this because it's just enjoyable for me. Do and that's really really important to anyone who wants to keep going and and Your mattress right We got to go to break right. Now we're talking with Melanie lower from citizens defense research. You're listening to ballistic radio back. Listed radio brought to you by Lucky. Dot Com and federal premium ammunition. They paid for this. So you don't have to so we're talking with melody lower from Citizens Defence Research. And we're in the last SEGMENT MELODY. So is it safe to say that? Ballistic Radio is better than a cup of coffee or no way worse. I haven't had coffee as I was saying. You see much more alert and awake then when I initially spoke to you right. Yeah Yeah I hit this and unlike I'm fucking myself via times a wake-up. Wow Wow this is a family oriented show miss none of that here so I guess my question is I was talking about. Brian Hill He and I were at class together and got to I was very lucky that I got to spend some time with Brian. Because Brian's amazing dude and an amazing instructor and I I always like speaking with him. Because I always learn something every time I talked to him. you know. But he was talking about the the comfort that he finds in the process and that seems to be You know of a variation of a theme for a lot of the people that are really good like really really good. is that enjoyment of the process And I think failing than I have always had and I you know I've I've tried to battle it with varying degrees of success. Is that the part that I enjoyed were outcomes Which is not really a healthy way to be in a something. I've worked on But the guys that are really good. You know guys like You know Tim Herron Ben Stegar who? I've had several conversations with him. Bentley says the part that he enjoys is going to the range with his stuff in practicing. That's the fun part for him. And then the matches and the things surrounding it are just the things that he sort of has to do to get to practice and that seems like a pretty good attitude to have about things right. Yeah and You know those are those are rare individuals because they're not I mean to to any degree We all enjoy the process to a certain degree or we wouldn't continue to do it You know both but what Canada end up happening like you said is you know. Eagle can get involved and you get to the point where at least with certain level the processes kind of boring And then you just want the outcomes. I want the this with that. And and reminding yourself that the process is kind of where you start getting back to. That is very is very healthy. But I think that it's okay. You know here's I think we're another part where where we fall down as an industry. It's okay it is absolutely okay to get to a certain point where you're safe where your you know you can confidently handle firearms and you go. You know what? This isn't something that I enjoy anymore like. This is something. I'm having a lot of fun with and I don't want to go further. I don't want to become a grandmaster with the essay shooter. I don't want to you know go to matches and like that does not seem enjoyable to me. It doesn't seem fun to me now. If you're being a responsible person especially through tearing again out in public I do have to say that. There is a responsibility to make sure that you're you maintain your skills because you are going out there in public with a firearm Does have the potential to hurt other people so you do have a responsibility to to maintain or proficiency so that you are not a danger to yourself or anyone else And I think that you do that through continued practice and through You know even if you just decide you know what? I'm not going to go to the range every month but you know once every two months I'll go to pistol match and at least you know work out some kinks and see what. Maybe I'm falling down on. Maybe once a year I'll take a class. I think that that's a reasonable thing for someone to do. But you don't have to become you know the world the shooter and you don't have to if you don't want to you know There's no rule written in the second amendment. You know clause that says that this has to be your way of life for the rest of your life As far as the the practicing and stuff is concerned. Or you're not taking it seriously And that's where I think. The industry we get kind of wrapped around the axles that someone is not training to our level we would like to see them trained to or they're not taking it as seriously as we are and so therefore they are not taking it seriously at all or you know. They're in a class and they're they're just trying to enjoy themselves or they're processing information a little bit differently than we would like to see them and therefore they are being disrespectful or they are you know being frivolous with the information or something like that and unless you actually take the time to sit down and talk to them and have there been cases of that. I'm sure there have I. I'm absolutely positive that there have been cases where people are being disrespectful to the information and frivolous and perhaps even dangerous and at that point in time for the safety of the group. You do have to ask those people to leave. That had happened but for the most part I think people are taking it seriously and it is on us to encourage not discourage they're they're taking that information and playing with it and having fun with it and if we can encourage safe fun and find ways to to encourage playing and You know thinking and Creativity were as an industry are GONNA be far better off toward it once so the other thing too that strikes you know we got a couple of minutes left in the show but frankly if If people you know simply took a blue gun and practice safe like like purposeful handling of the blue gun inside of their own home around other people's where they were you know Learning how to draw the firearm without Muslim other people themselves and learning how to move in an actual environment without Muslim themselves or other people that would be frankly for most of this all the practice someone would need after they've mastered the extreme you know the basic fundamentals of an and not even mastered but just like passing familiarity with. Um like you can. You can reasonably expect to hit. You know a a relatively generous target at close range. You're probably okay as long as you don't point the gun at staff accidentally you know and it seems like you know you. WanNa go further than that. That's awesome but like is not a requirement it's not a requirement I think that that encouraging things like that are in general encouraging. People to take coupons and play with it encouraging them to take a concept and even within a class. And saying okay. We're going to give you the concept of eye dominance. Let's play with. We're going to give you the concept of you know Pine the corner. Let's play with it. Letting them experiment without you know I mean with within time allotments. Of course you're not taking too much time and guiding them but allowing them to come to conclusions and allowing them to to be creative with information and give feedback and say well. What if we did this? Because that's what encouraged us their excitement because they feel like they're involved in the learning process which they are instead of just being dictated to all the time right Some trying to yeah we got we got about two minutes left What would be your final thought that you'd LE- leave people with and if someone would like to take class with you or Anything like that. Where can they work? They find out about that. I think final thoughts would be what I said me encouraging people to to an even on in conversations like on the internet or something where someone says. Well you know if I were if I were in the situation I would do this. Maybe they say. And it's completely you know tactically unsound you know instead of jumping down their throat and telling them how terrible and horrible. They aren't how they're not taking this seriously. You know Encouraging them like wow. I can see where you thought that like. I used to think that you're that used to be a thought way back then because this but now that we've played with it more and we understand you know there are ways to construct that conversation. That are a lot more positive and encouraging and encouraging the thought process rather than just dumping cold water on their heads saying no. You're stupid This is a serious topic. You're not allowed to play That would be really good for not only students but but people coming into the industry and wanting to learn So that's what that that would be what I would encourage people to do Budged if they wanted to come and play with us. We've complete with us. She that citizens defense research dot com and on facebook assist defense research because we do encourage You know learning and caught on and and fun You know good clean fun right. No so yeah if If folks want to come out that would be awesome Melanie thanks so much for being a good sport And continuing to be the person that I lean on the most win when something I really appreciate it. I I appreciate you Why didn't really give the option so much because I don't think you understood quite what was going on the I when I called and I'm like hey I need you to come on the show.

Don't Gandhi what's up so I know a lot of people claim that they hate surprises but but I don't buy it. I think if it's a good surprise everybody's going to like it. I surprised my best friend this weekend. She didn't think I was going to be able to go to her baby shower because originally thought we were going to be doing the iheartradio festival and then plans change so I was able to pop up on her. She says she hates surprises. She's happy I think you should just pop up on people. It's great pop depending on where you're possibly go wrong. Hopefully you're gonNA pop up on someone. Make sure they know who exactly everybody always likes it. If it's a bad surprise that's surprises prices and hate them. what's so at my house right now. We are binge-watching riverdale like it's going out of business every day. We're watching three or four episodes catch up because we were loving the show.

Okay but it's so good so if you haven't seen it really is a good show so riverdale via the chance it's good we're watching it like it like it's out of business is is it out of business here. It's still in business just checking the new seasons. Let's get into the three things you need to know Gandhi. What are they over as filing a suit against New York City City the company is seeking to avoid a new rule that limits how long their drivers can stay idle in Manhattan without passengers so they're saying that this will really cause their drivers to take a big hit and a spokesman spokesman for mayor? De Blasio says it will actually protect New Yorkers against a company that seeks to profit. I had a friend who took an uber and Uber driver was not a good one. He's got lost trying to find. He picked him up but I got to stop and get gas so he's talking to a guy he got gas. An Uber actually sent a notification to my friends saying are you okay. Your car isn't moving so they have a new a new safety feature that they're rolling out which is exactly that if your car stays idle too long they check on more than half a million people are stranded because the world's oldest travel firm collapsed. Did you hear about this which one Thomas Cook. Thomas Cook has been around forever since eighteen forty one but no longer so they were looking to get at six hundred thousand dollars to stay afloat couldn't get it and now over six hundred thousand people are stuck in hotels without airfare yeah all over the place. Thomas Coke has been booking trips into what in eighteen forty one probably went out of business because the covered wagon didn't show up you gotta update yes now the best mode of transportation and today they start the new season autumn or thought them depending on how you roll most places on earth. We'll see about twelve hours of daylight twelve hours of night just today and then the days are going to get disorder but we are not setting those clocks back until November third.

You still work here. I'll just use the word then I'll use nuptials. W Word nuptials reminds me of the word Nipples to every every time you say well. Jill's I think of Ariola Gregory Good Morning. We need the W box so at any time everyone uses is or anyone uses the w word they got money in the W. What's the amount a dollar okay? That's good. I gotta I gotta I have been nicer box. I could change it into the nuptial but not being nice this crap remember. We had a box every time you were nice.

Hey guys bedtime is sometimes a battle for both you and your kids for instance my daughter Ella she struggled sometimes to fall asleep while fortunately Tricia attritional have now discovered vicks purity's kids Melatonin Gumy's to help her fall asleep naturally find peers these kids in stores everywhere I've been gone a week and everything Mike actually three three weeks right. Helen Helen gone three weeks and thought like a year away from this microphone. My question is where's my microphone I'm using I'm using of silver microphone. Where is it? Why did you take it out well? I didn't I earn the gold Mike I was there. I didn't want to use use it. Let's be honest. It's a microphone. No it's magical Mike Okay so we haven't in a protective cloth. Napkins looks like something my grammar that would wrap up to take home at the restaurant. Let's make something dirty the way I'm stroking his little creepy. You've the Wiggleworth like put it in your you. Put it in your hand and like you squish it and it goes from one end to the other falls out of your hands. That's been it looks like so. Why did you take my microphone microphone down now? He was a respect thing because you obviously are in the hall of fame. You won every award talking that thing it's Kim and put it back in a here permeable. I slipped this implied that I hold on. Let me what an hour is there is there music usually struggling. Okay here isn't Oh. There's my goal Mike on now. You feel better now in this area go okay. Hi actually sounds better yeah shell different now. This is my weird. It's not all right sounds better. I like that hey so I need. I need a Brit L. Would you like I have a Brit Daniels husband Sheldon. I do sound better. Call Him. Yeah something happened to me while I was on vacation and I have a question I think all of the United States of America needs to know needs to know there are people across the pond that don't like us. Okay say what you'll you'll see all I know I don't want to tell the story till we have sheldon on the on the honker now there is this whatever happened. Is it something that you did to earn not being you were just American and they didn't like okay. Let's let's get get his initial thought by the way we haven't told him about. This might be sleeping so I'm the faint I think my blood pressure. Medicine is kicking my ass. They can. I do the show on the floor like that last time here. You weren't here Gandhi 'cause I. I was taking this bad blood. I pressure medicine okay and my body couldn't handle it and I would faint I would I would literally just follow. That's terrible side effects so I had to do the show on my back on the floor because is that just left that sheldon a good morning sheldon good morning. Did we wait. Did we wait you. Possibly I do have a serious question and I I Polish but you're the only Brit I I know very Mary. Well and you know what I'm saying. What have I done now okay? I'll just set it up and I think with the mood you're in. You'll have a good answer for so we were in my Orca for our honeymoon and is you know a lot of Brits a holiday in my yard yeah right so we were at this great resort we we're staying and I went to the men's room and I did my business. I was washing my hands and gentleman walked in and he was at the urinal doing his business and he says to me. Are you like us this evening. We're just sitting over there laughing at the Americans and I said well no I am an American. It and we can't be rambunctious. I hope we haven't on offended you and he looked at me and you could tell he was daring in there and I walked out so can you tell me what was he possibly talking about. What had you done to make came? Have that statement nothing. There could have been other Americans that have done something but is is there a class of Brit who looks down on the Americans and considers us a little. I'll be honest. I have not heard that response in very very many years. It is normally my American friends who come over to England normally say they were treated spoken to extremely well welcomed with open arms was there is a there is a reputation with current government situations that AH in Europe makes people chuckle a little bit but it's it's one of those things that it's a not understood so they they sometimes making pollutions that way but I think reputations home Americans in England is is extremely high so I am surprised to well. I just figured out why you're saying this. You see if a proper Londoner was having to judge in American they they think the same thing as wacky Americans think of the Wacky people from Brighton where you're from quite for. How long now is that? We love you to interrupt your day but I thought it was funny that he he he and his friends were sitting there watching the Americans for entertainment. I would love to tell you the reason why and make fun of you as well but I don't have uh-huh because you are too much alike well thank you. It's always a pleasure music. We love you. Sheldon have welcome come back. Thank you so much. Love Jerry Lewis to I know sometimes uh-huh people but you know you could tell he was he was kind of snooty stuck on himself not not not sheldon but the no the guy at the resort faked an accent found out what he was laughing about what I want to get into a situation in three minutes later like Oh. This is what I should have said. All uh-huh time horse to what I wanted to say was after he said I don't know about you but we're all in the enjoying watching the Americans detaining I wanted to say I'm sorry sorry I'm from America. I don't speak English. I don't know what you just say next time. I have to run back out there and be like Oh and one more thing. Let me say it and furthermore I always found when we went to France that we had a problem because like nine they just were like they. I didn't even talk like like I would shut my mouth and I have sheldon tool of the talking and for ten I would just nod my head because we didn't think highly of the Americans over there found out when when I what I've learned about the French I've never had a bad experience there but they just have a different outlook on life and sometimes I think we mistake that for the hating us they hate. Hey everyone and there's also there's some etiquette things that I think in the US we would be offended if somebody did it to us and then we do it when we go overseas so I watched the entire show about French etiquette kit and one of the biggest things they said to do is just never approach someone and say hello in your language yeah attempt to say and if you do that then all of a sudden you're on the right track and you're going the right direction whereas if somebody comes up to us here and they start speaking to us in a different language a lot of people are like speak English. What are you doing yeah so it's kind of the same over there? I guess I'm just being myself but I thought I thought it was funny that he didn't know he thought I was British.

You know what it is and I'm only a weekend. Keep that in mind the honeymoon out of the thing is this once you are married and you in your mind in your heart. You're just you're there. It's the two of you now as one. You feel like you can get away with saying more stuff because you know you're locked in. You're not going anywhere. I point point amount unlike any look at that. She's she's hot isn't she. He's like no we have different tastes really guys. Though he points leads among the me too will our problems. We have the same feel differently now that you've been officially pronounced husband and husband yeah yeah absolutely I do and it's still new. Oh my favorite thing is we were Way New York. Post did a story about US page six and they gave my age Elvis Duran fifty five in the gave Alex's age thirty three. Hey let me tell you girls. She's pushing forty. Okay Alex is the eight me talking about the Alex's thirty nine years old but they reported thirty three and that's not right. Listen to you on Alex's part. Will there's already a sixteen year difference difference which I don't think is but anyway but this is twenty something years. What's it just dawned upon me? It's much more easier for two husbands to share a guy and I'm going to start to start this over for Danielle and Sheldon. It's not as easy you say oh she's hot and then Kazan yell is not going to be with another woman. I'm saying if you're going to bring a third percent relationship for the night but for Elvis and Alex. You said you do have the same taste. You both like guys. It's a lot easier for that scenario to present God. That's what I'm saying. Okay I see I see down. It's kind of really could've gone on said all right. I got so you're saying since Danielle is not a lesbian not on Monday not a bisexual. He's saying that you're indefinitely. I'm definitely not bisexual what he's saying gay by the way today is celebrate bisexuality day to celebrate today as I veer off the road to another topic thank you I have many friends who are bisexual and I say they live in in a world. Some of them were a lot of people just don't understand and really make fun of them. Sometimes how you're my sexual now. You're not you can either be gay or straight all right. We'll know it's not always that way in real life so you know just understand that everyone's different if someone is attracted to both male and female let them be that way I mean it's it's there's there are they hurting. You know no one's hurting anybody. Let everybody to be happy with just under understanding all everything the entire spectrum of of gender or sexual preference or sexual preference but you're born this way hello. Why can't we just let people people be themselves because we live on a planet of a whole alert interrupt policemen? They're everywhere. I'm watching Riverdale and I'm learning a lot you the report because there's a lesbian couple riverdale. There's a gay couples straight couples and Mike. My son watches it with me and we just he's like yeah. That's her girlfriend. That's that's her boyfriend. He doesn't think anything of it no well. Let's celebrate bisexuality here on celebrate bisexuality day there you go on every it's also family day. Can I ask though how do we celebrate. I don't know how to see you make out with everyone. Brody was hoping Gandhi and I were making asking for the show always out here's how you can quietly or simply celebrate just acknowledged the fact that they are ah living living with a whole different outlook than you are and be fine with it. I think that's that's I'm GonNa send my bisexual friends balloons. You should uh-huh I have gay friends that really they don't want to understand bisexual friends. They don't have space in their heads for and I don't. I don't don't get it but whatever anyway on that note can. We also just address that just because you don't understand something or you heard something that you didn't want to hear doesn't make that person horrible or evil or wrong. It's just something that you didn't want to hear it. I feel like that's been happening a lot lately where one of us will make a joke about something thing and then people online get upset and they're like how dare you shame on you. You don't have to like what I said but it's just it was sad so move on you know I agree and sometimes in your life. Let's say your mom says something pisses you off. Well guess what she still. Your Mom's fate is she pissed you off and my dad always says that your mom that's how she is. Oh my God. Ah Did you do your impersonation last week I guy I heard I heard there's some backlash there. There were like you know there are a couple hardcore. Miley fans were like how dare you make fun of her. That's awful why Miley Cyrus makes fun of people all the time. You can make fun of me in three just because he didn't like it doesn't mean I did something illegal. If something you've forgotten number four more heard your in person. She totally loves it but anyway. Let's go talk to Amanda Amanda. What's going well? Hello All lady lady what's going on. What can we do for you? Know exactly what you're talking about.

I had a piece of glitter on my Chin All weekend and I have no idea and this morning morning was still there and I was trying to pick it up. I don't know where it came from.

Oh but it's where I get that piece of glitter sometimes and just blows in outer space crazy not what's up Gandhi okay. I you know we always hear it's five o'clock somewhere found for that places where it is always five o'clock and it's at the airport because I was there yesterday at eight. Am and people were slamming shots at eight and I was like half in all half terrified get it. It's five o'clock somewhere right and it's always five o'clock at the airport so I never judge if you're drinking shots at eight. Am and then there on that plane at nine nine in the flight attendants have to deal with them right and then there puking and then you're getting my plane grounded so maybe that part don't do that but aside from that have had so much fun on Swiss air loves right through Zurich. It was a beautiful flight and they brought shots did they. What's her shot of choice on an airplane? Ooh whiskey okay what's up scary you would think here in my adult life I would have developed certain skills by now and tying. It's high is one of those things where I just. I try like a fourth grader. I need the youtube video for how to tie a tie every time and could do a one trick pony. I can only do a single windsor. That's about it but I realized twenty different ways. It's crazy to feel embarrassed by you know here's the thing we live in a world where we don't. I'll have to wear ties except for like four times a year so fine. We'll relearn every time clip on tie it die. I saw a youtube video the other day where it was like one step and it took about ten seconds. It was a perfect not. I'm trying to find it for you. I'll send it to you never Alex you could go into his closet right now. He has ties that are pre tied. He's over. I had a great plan. Good plan tightened them up Scotty the saying did it back into the three things you need to know Gandhi. What are they right now General Motors in the United Auto Worker's Union? We'll talk today.

He is not doing very well and finally the event to storm area. Fifty one actually happened early Friday morning. We talked about it a a little bit. Only about one hundred people showed up.

You know that didn't happen at all all right. I I was talking to Garett about some sound. That thing you're talking about isn't here. I don't think it's there. I checked it. This is all like behind the scenes code words. What is this I have no idea we're getting into sound with Garrett and What else do you want to do here? Straight nate who went from being host two senior executive producer Yeah I duNno I duNno. It's I kind of had ideas so last week. When we were figuring out what the hell we were doing in your absence and you did a great job here we kinda had a huddle before the break started and we kind of knew where we were going to go and sometimes it went there and sometimes it didn't like in your true fashion and so I I don't know what the Hell we're doing here so I was trying to deal with some email thing right? Now who emailing we're supposed to get some audio for something in the audio from iheartradio income income in Ta I tell you this is the first year since the very beginning of the iheartradio music festival that we weren't there and weird it is weird and I got a little little foam jealous.

Danielle is a great parent so he's doing something with this trial today. Doing Donuts Dad donuts with Dan totally approve. That's good so what else happened last week while I was away real sweaty and he started sort of morphing into you by the end of the week yelling he was yelling there was one moment where he was trying into like do a liner and he got frustrated. He started screaming and ripped it up and threw it in the air. Now I know how you feel sometimes because behind the scenes elvis records a lot of stuff for a lot of our affiliates elites across the country and we're very happy to do them but after twenty minutes you're tired of reading you're ready to drive off. He was very upset about that. We found out Greg T is a snitch. He's a super snitch but that's okay right. Okay these things. What else did you find out Garret? We had a great conversation about pepper spray pepper spray. What Ever Spur Tapia? Why were you pepper sprayed? That's a great topic if you if you have your own radio show feel free to steal we stole it from another one well. It started with Gandhi because she's been pepper sprayed three three times in her life now that we talked about this a long time ago. Do you remember the three reasons why Gandhi was sprayed. I don't remember I don't go number. One number one was because we went to a movie and some guy started talking to us and apparently their girlfriends snuck into the movie to watch them and then saw them talking to us and decided to pepper spray all of us that was unfortunate number. Two number two went to the beach. My Mom gave me pepper spray to ward off any attackers and it exploded can't take up restraints into the learned and then the third time I was in the car with my boyfriend and a few friends and he found my friends pepper spray out it was perfume and just spread it everywhere and froggies froggies pepper spray I story. Did you share that. Yes I got pepper sprayed. I was working at a grocery store and I was out on court duty trying to pick up the cards a lot and this one. She was an older lady. She was putting her groceries in her car and I was waiting for her to finish what the cart she thought I was going to Mug her so she reached into her purse. She sprayed me square in the face with Mace and I could not see anything for like hours. Did she apologize or yeah but she thought I was mugging. GonNa getting the car the funniest by in retrospect it is a hilarious story scary the alot give me another low moment from last week. We did a lot entering and sometimes it leads you down these paths like this woman called up and admitted to picking her nose rolling it and flicking the out the window of her car her commute every and that was from me funny but low low there is a lower that was worse. Gandhi was we had a listener call in and tell us how she plucks out her hair and makes a little in the bed. She makes a pile of button Dan and how much this woman could possibly we asked her to specify so you're pulling it off your cheeks. She said no no right around the whole yeah. I'd say I'm sorry I didn't listen to engage someone loves her. Franck did get lower than that. I don't know if it's lower than that. Because that's pretty hello there are people on the show that are using your W as a way to make money on me. I just know that is oh. Ho Ho Ho great tea we need the the no W word box in here so if they say the w where they have to put it all agree with that and that is exactly what I want to tell you Elvis Gentlemen Greg Takashi six nine in the morning of the morning show are selling their giresse. Who Says Oh disgusting disgusting so yourself a do you want to explain explain without opinion? Give the the story basically it was told to all the guys that the girls are selling their dresses on posh mark because they wore them to your wedding. Being in the they're saying went to it was worn at his wedding is operatives they have regular description and then in giant bold letters capitals that says as warn to Elvis Duran. W A you said w weren't twice great t that's dollars crispy wanted to sign on the dotted line. They'll give you a bonus. We're great the one hundred and three point five dollars suit now. Here's the thing if you want to sell your dresses beautiful dresses. That's what posh markets for yeah. I didn't want to sell mine only because I like it and I wanted to use it for something else but Gandhi we were talking about. This and people actually requested requested for the dresses they. When are you guys going to sell your dresses on posh by they ask for it right so you don't have to put in giant letters? I wore to elgin this job you you don't say to Applebee's last Wednesday ensured on there and say as worn to Elvis's wedding. You're never wearing that said wedding day wedding. I'll put a dollar in the thing not much is that you said it twice so hold on Daniel bar dollar discern sir dollar. I have a five dollar bill thank you. I'm assuming that you guys took this topic. As far as it could go because that's what we do because the guys just kept trying to throw us and they would just just jealous Daniel you and Gandhi you knew whatever you want with your dresses and if you want to say if you WanNa see some pictures from the W. and they look look great. You'll see what's what's the big hill know jealous and what the dress that I wore. It's a bright orange color. We thousand pictures. I'm never gonNA wear that again. I can't right so it has to go. You guys do what you want. Don't listen to them and I know you're not listening to them anyway. This is bs from now on you can never ever scold me for using in your name Elvis Duran Duran show to take advantage of a situation of course they can junk going to get a table of course what thing wing we put things on Hush Mark One thing money office applebee's resumes so you ask me. You're trying to get a Personal Pan Pizza Pizza Hut for three years the name for everything don't hold on a second dollar there. Thank you way the five dollars spotting me for all the Times.

I'M GONNA call them all all asking Kelvin number moving on moving on so love you sell your dress. All you want scary. You can Hor- my name out all you want. I don't care thank you. I gotta be honest with you in this. This could be a dangerous thing but over the past three weeks. I have turned into the I don't care guy all all and I don't know if it's good. I think it's good for you know the need to live longer. You're not get as out of shape and I'm sure I'll still get out of shape from time to time but there for many things where I'm just like. I don't care where someone said well. No you know you'd letting nate come in and host the show you know maybe maybe it's better. If if you just play the the best to keep your brand I don't care I don't care I know I trust nate and I trust you guys yeah so I don't care and they say well. Oh you're in radio. Things are always changing and people removing and I don't care I do care but I'm not going to let it bother me and this this conversation with froggies wife Lisa but she said I'm going to get to a point where I'm going to be like that and I'm going to be like I don't care. It doesn't matter I don't care. I don't don't use IT as like A. I don't care meaning. I hate you screw. You know there's no it's like a I've lived fifty five years of my life right carrying a bit too much about the things that I can't control or the things that I don't want to control. Let them control themselves. God Wow so I hope I start ah keep going in that direction and I want everyone else to do. You don't have to wait to your half of friggin hundred years old. Is it so liberating. Doesn't it feel good good well when you when you apply at it does if you actually genuinely don't care. You can't just stay it. You have to actually feel it less anxiety yeah I know but with that you lose your a little bit and you know I'm kind of famous for having a little bit of an edge just fine. Gandhi taught us about about the word key stirring another moment from last week I need to learn about. I assumed everybody knew what peace through that. I guess people don't have as many jail friends friends. I do things in your booty boosting. I've never heard that word is that the same never so many terms so awesome so you can actually go see a friend in prison and take them a what would you take them in your but there are all kinds of things that and then we looked up things that have gotten stuck Kuala tempting to keister crazy. I don't know why we can't just call it. Shove it up your ass this. Please be classed keystone. I missed a lot last week. De you guys you gotTa Lotta Mileage last week. Thank you nate. You know what you ran a a good run. We also learn how to stay pretty in prison. Oh Yeah we'll keep drinking. Help does have Gosh Takashi six nine. His hair is still all brightly brightly colored and I was wondering well. How the heck does he do that? Because those kind of colors very maintenance and people are saying kool-aid and all these other ways melt Raleigh ranchers telling you what prisoners are like the most innovative people I've ever heard what was the and there are so many choose from there. There was one prison prison series and there were we talked about it. Oh Yeah wasn't jailbirds jailbirds and they get so creative yeah you have to a drop note down the toilet system. You have to know when to pull your your line up your toilet fancy what they're saying three floors above anyway so kice during I'm just loving the show knocking down the ball they were meeting each other like there was a dating service on the toilet it was great all right so let's get into sound with Garrett anyway all right so yesterday he celebrated twenty five years of friends airing for the first time on TV and Meghan trainor did a cover of the song you we love you Megan and last week a few of US went to the pop up shop here New York City.

It's happening so funny. How Gandhi and Danielle have different opinions ends of Konya? Does the Chris Brown guided only by the way they're saying that key string of the prison wallet and what's in your wallet. We had a whole different delivery all right. Hi Danielle is talking about this earlier. We have one of our first Christmas songs of the year in the first column from Leah Michelle.

Our Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend again many superstars. Were there Alicia keys there. I know you're going to see her this weekend. Global Citizen Festival Elvis Alicia Keys Talking Ryan about not listening to everyone around her starting to listen to herself and that's how she made her our latest songs. One of the things I've discovered over the years is so many people are telling you so many things you have your best friend that you looked for advice. You have the person that you're always saying. Is this the right thing. You have the way that you act with your boss the way that you act with your family you have you have all these people that are just kind of telling you what they think is right for. You and it wasn't until I started to really understand that I could hear what was right for myself that are it's really kicking into a place. That's just never been in a new place for me did exactly what we're talking about and she was on stage and she brought out loose capacity and they did someone you loved August. All the knowledge says in God's It's who we don't do she said was she was like she was playing the piano. They said how stopping her people call. My person my person so I love all right. Let's talk about some of the performances that went down Camila Cabello Doing Senorita by herself in your time look like good sinus infection section two oh good elvis green days at the stage the rocky out.

Let's go back in time which we could or what else are you and that's all sorts of stuff here all right. That's good anyway. Thank you so much. You'RE GONNA keep talking about a second ago now. You're seeing that peace during keystone during and buffing are different things yes. They're very different. Things Dare we look up. I mean I can tell you a buffet does is it. Can you know yeah I mean it's not it's not a sexual act. It's probably not something we should encourage talk about. Is it the same suitcase thing but the hell I'm not sure what suitcase that's something that I know. I don't do it regularly but I did see that somewhere. GotTa keep doing when you're smuggling things using you know particular regular orifice of your body. Boosting is using that same thing to enjoy what you're trying to smuggle vodka yeah when people put things in there not to get too graphic but I just say I if you're GONNA shot. Do it. The old fashioned way right there in your mouth. Yeah take take the shot. Normally don't waste a perfectly. I'll tell you guys in the commercial. Ghandi's GONNA show up on Monday mornings. She's pooping all weakest Elvis Duran and the morning show we move into audible. Sorry audible placement in our show is just not the most choice I was actually talking to a friend of of mine the other day who said she only listened to audible because she wants to do other things and not have to look at the TV and pay attention she can just take all of it in her ears and continue to work. She loves it. Yeah that makes sense I and the thing is a lot of people like me one. I can only focus on one thing at a time and that's why I use audible to listen to my favorite books and I tell you what because. I don't WanNa think about something else. I don't want to strain my eyes. I wanted to drive in. Hopefully I won't run over someone focusing on my audible. That's always the hope no but I just I use my audible to put my things in my ears my pods and just let loose zone out I zone out but zone zone in to a great read you know and they have so many things your favorite listens doesn't matter what weather is does you can be anywhere. Listen to these things fair enough. You gotTa keep enjoying everything without that sacrificing your summary. Even when it's the worst weather ever coming up you can get outside with audible even if you're inside accents are you are you on my plane. I'm on your level. It started a thirty day trial. Choose one audiobook in two audible originals absolutely free enjoy the unlimited access to guided meditation fitness programs which I did on the plane coming home yesterday audible dot com slash Elvis that's audible dot com slash Elvis Duran and the morning show sort of funny how greg he's he's only job.

When we were in my Arca this beautiful bar we'd sit out every afternoon or evening have cocktails whatever the bartender would bring out this little bitty tiny bowl of their homemade potato chips like Kennel potato chips whatever they are and I would have one and then the whole thing I I would sit there and eat them until until they would bring up multiple balls an Alex is you've got to stop?

We missed Elvis but holy cannoli. You guys were great last week. They loved the show Elvis. Welcome back. How come you oh you can't talk about the W why because we haven't discussed it because like stay at the W we can't talk about the the actual you know W. E. D. He d I N G I didn't say it is just we went on and on about it leading up to it and then I know you guys refer to it a few times last week? It's like after a while. I just think we should move on it. Gets very considerate of you but I also think people talk about their ws for a long time indulge in it and love it. It's a one time you do it. Everybody has questions they want to hear from you your or opinion on things you know I did just post a little sample of the video from from our friend Rick in this company who did the video Griffey is pretty cool. Let's on instagram at Elvis Duran but yeah majestic creative. They did a great job but here's I think if you go to a w and they give away mini Cooper. You should be able to talk about that W. For as long as you want. We'll tell you there is a funny story about the many is brody and I know he just wanted out front. Brody compare froggy actually went up to brody and said hey hey I heard the band rehearsing today I think I think I know how they're going to give away the mini Cooper at the at the W. Right. Would you tell them they were pointing join. The price is right being like Oh. We're all going to get the bid so I started going on. The phone. Much goes out that way though I thought that at my w we're going to have the prices right reenacted and people are to get the actual retail price they were playing the prices right thing they were practising so so brody he told you about the price is right so tell them what you did after that okay so I studied the car the engine all the specs only add on the roof rack the automatic transmission the Navajo leather seats the color and I went to the Santa Fe mini Cooper website and I priced it out I built my own and I figured out the exact price ace right so that I could come as close as possible seats cheap. It's okay well no. He's not cheating so I had it down to the dollar then I figured good well. That's the asking price you probably got thousand less than that. So I rounded down a little bit and I was ready and then all of a sudden they pick a name out of a hat. I spent an hour sitting out in the lobby research and his damn the wedding researching the car well first of all. I don't dance so instead of dancing. I did research but my daughter driving list at that moment this line of the dance Denver. I did research right research tonight Mahfoud. My daughter started driving lessons that morning.

We're talking about the novel you WanNa talk about the W we were about the car my family because I wanted it and sheldon wanted it and they go well. No we win. I'm getting it and you already have one. He goes no but it doesn't matter and we were sitting at the table. Arguing is if we really really really win that car. Did you guys know that we're going to give it away simply by letting dry quick hand in a jar.

Hey Wizards this week I'm at the annual meeting of Yufa. The United Flamingo Financiers Association I can't believe it's been a year just flew by. So we're replaying one of our favorite episodes. It's on the history of cheerleading. Actually it's a two part, or because what started out as an episode about pompoms and perkiness turned into a much bigger story, a story about the battle to make cheerleading less weight and the invention of a whole new style of cheer. Has More chance is more inspired by Gospel Music Jazz Music. You have reached the every little thing. Help Line. Give me a be. Give me an e. give me an e. give me a p. Hey, Laura Too Jessica, my husband and I were talking earlier today around four twenty and we were wondering. How did cheerleading start? It is a factual emergency. Thanks bye. Hello. Hey? It's flora from every little thing. Hey Flora. Funny a lot of listeners call us with questions. They thought up around four twenty. Looking for lasagna recipes telling us our eclipse episode lines up perfectly with the wizard of Oz. It's a good time to clear your mind and We were doing such, and I literally have no recollection of how the question was brought up, but I think just in for twenty fashion spun around to my husband and said Hey. Cheerleaders. What do you mean? All of the cheers? All the moves the clothing, the social status. The pom-poms poms. You know standing on top of each other throwing people in the air. Just the whole thing. If you look at it out of context, seems real strange. Did you have any first-hand experience with the strangeness I was a cheerleader for a small period of my life as a kid, it was intense. If girls did their hair was, it had to be the same exact way. Use the exact same products like. If it was a certain scrunchy, it had to be the same color had to look the same I. Mean it was it was very conformed. How about the cheers you share from your cheerleading days. Okay, so we were the eagles, and for some reason someone decided that we should say woop. WOOP KLOM KLOM which runs together. If you're a southerner, but that is literally claw them. So. We would just scream whoop whoop. KLOM and the entire crowd would do. It was released rain Hoop Klom. Like encouraging physical harm as well. You know it's just the whole thing. How did your cheerleading days come to an end? You know I wanted there to be more individualism and there wasn't. But maybe there's something to that in the history of it I don't know there is really What do you want to know? I do need to know where it was started. Who jumped up first and said like you know? Hey, Gimme a and like what are the first person say like? Did they say here's your a you know like how strange was that? I would like to know if it was always or started as female lead. I really need to know where pompoms came from. Jessica! I'm GONNA give you A. I'm GonNa end I'm us were. What's that spell? And swore. Okay actually. I'm not going to give you an answer, but Natalie. Adams will hi. Jessica Natalie is a professor at the University of Alabama and a former high school cheerleader. Yes I was cheerleader back in the day when you had to have no talent whatsoever I could do a cartwheel in a split. What was the team? The wildcats, the mighty winsborough wildcats. You remember any of the cheers. Oh Yeah Yeah so we always ended the PEP rally and the football game with two bits, four bits six bits the dollar all for the wildcats stand up and Holler Natalie's hollered on the field and in the field. She wrote the book on the history of cheerleading. I Co authored with one of my very dear friends. A book called cheerleader American icon. We had a lot of fun writing this book. We drank a lot of wine and practice. cheerleading jobs on the back porch. I can see it. Do you ever do that? I. Don't I mean I? Drink a ton of wine. How did cheerleading begin correct? How do you imagine the first cheerleader I truly don't know why, but I picture a male I don't know like a group of guys like fighting over something you know, and it just kind of like turned into this Get Him. Get in and do this and do that in just in. It took off from there. When I say your Rightish you say. I'm rightish. The first cheerleaders were all male. That's ripe. So I want to send you. A picture of the people involved in the first documented moment cheerleading history. We'll also put it on instagram at Lt show. Tang. So? We're talking like Abe. Lincoln style. most of them have bow ties. And I really truly think one of them has a cane. Abe Lincoln is actually not a bad reference because cheerleading seems to get going in eighteen, sixty nine, there's a lot of folklore and of surrounding cheerleading in its history, but most people agree that the kind of I cheer was actually at a game between rutgers and Princeton. A group of residents broke out into this cheer, which was raw Ross. Assist boom boom boom. Should. We do that like anytime. There's like a good. Fact or something that you enjoy learning, should you do and? Yes, okay? The cheer is called the Princeton. Locomotive and they're still doing it to this day. They feel like they could come up with something else I mean they're like really smart right I guess. In the early days cheering wasn't that organized. It was just a bunch of dudes CICIS saying on the sidelines. There were cheers, but not cheerleaders, but that changed thirty years later. The person who's usually given credit as being first cheerleader was a guy by the name of Johnny Campbell, and that was eighteen, ninety eight at the University of Minnesota so in the story goes the Johnny Campbell. Was that a game? He was so overcome with team spirit and I. Don't know Minnesota Grain alcohol that he led the crowd in a cheer. This is how cheer got its leader. But he wouldn't be called that he would have been called like the Ruder King. The Yale leader. The Yale, Master Yale Marshall, but no man is the L. Island pretty soon, yell, marshalls form, Yell platoons around nineteen o five, nineteen, ten. You start seeing a squad in would be small like four. Are we letting women in yet now? Still all Ahmed, look just probably what you imagine. An Ivy League school white Dude Lane cut athletic are Y'all sweaters? You know maybe a pipe exactly that really gets the crowd going, you know. Well if that doesn't get you going to cheer from the time will, it's sexy and math based were there is one from a Georgia tech when Georgia tech was all male. They had a cheer that said differential wide differential eggs to hail with. Differentials we won't sex. I'm sorry, but who's going to say yes to that. Now imagine them yelling. We want sex while bouncing on a trampoline trampling that was their prop of choice one of the reasons why girls and young women weren't allowed is because that would have been very unseemly for a young woman to be bouncing off a trampoline, and that cheerleading would make girls too masculine. Another concern about. I did I did come on big point there. Another concern was that women's voices were too shrill to command a crowd. The FROG throated lassie's. That's what they were called Oh no. I feel like frog started last sees is the vocal fry troll of the nineteen, Thirties. But we know frog throated. lassie's get on that trampoline eventually. What happens is during World War Two. Young, men leave the college campuses and girls flock to cheerleading because their positions there and when the war ended, women held onto those positions, because this is one of the few athletic opportunities for women at the time. They didn't want to leave. You know very similar to women. got to work for the first time. They were like I kind of like this. I don't WanNA leave by the nineteen fifties. The cheerleading gender dynamic has flipped. cheerleading becomes very much. Feminizing high schools tended to be almost all girls. And these girls are putting their own twist on cheerleading. They make their in uniforms. Create their own cheers. It's all very artisanal and locally sourced all right all right. Let me give you an example of a cheer from the time. Folks. Love. Bobo Boom He. Loves. For definitely in the northeast here, okay, so just compare lobster lobster Aurora to the cheers. We have today which all sorts of sound the same. They could be coming from any school anywhere. Ready. Okay, S, U C C E S. S. That's the way we saw success. I do notice that we spell a lot more. And when you played that, I had one of those like PTSD shivers like. We always did the ready, okay, and like one arm in the air that started with. Jessica there's a reason why you always started with that and why we all know the same spelling. Cheers, it traces back to the nineteen fifties and one Gao. Lawrence Herk Mer. They father of cheerleading. There would not be cheerleading. We know it today. Had there not been lawrence comer didn't expect it to be a man. Jessica. Have you heard of Herkie? I have like half of a split one leg bent. Yes, it is a famous cheerleading jump. If you imagine a cheerleader doing a jump, it would be this one. I know about the hurricane. So the herkie was named after the so-called father of cheerleading, it was his signature move, and his nickname air by calling murky. Somebody called him Lawrence you if they called on the phone and ask for Lawrence you knew that and. That's not somebody that really knew him. You'd probably somebody's selling something. That's Herkie sister-in-law. Barbara's would. He was married to my sister Dorothy. Did you meet him? Oh? When I was a baby in the crib. He was around and I was a flower girl in their wedding when I was five. Just what do you want to know about herkie well? I would like to put. A face to the name right? Let me send you a picture. Okay so. This guy has a lot of pep for sure. Yeah, that's verified. Was Perky. Dobbs people would laugh in calling Perky, or that could not be any better I know. He's in like white kids. White socks, white pants, white handkerchief around his neck tight. Polo shirt. I just noticed all the women screaming below him. Yes, he's like mid herkie jump above five women, five white women, all dressed in white all with the same haircut, yes. They look like they're supposed to be doing mock horror, but they're doing real horror instead. Yeah, I think that's true. So that was her in his heyday, but here's how he got his start. Herkie was a cheerleader in high school and college. He loved it so much that after graduation he kept going to cheer lead at Football Games and at one game he got so excited he did back flips all the way down the field. Someone took a picture and ended up in a big national magazines, and that's when his phone started to ring where he received a phone call from a doctor. Doctor Hackney down in Huntsville Texas at Sam Houston State Teachers College and try to get a phone call back in those days. What was pretty? You know it was pretty serious? If somebody calls you on long distance. Wow, that was a big deal, so he called her a key to save. He would go down in train. Some of his cheerleaders he was called in to bring some PEPs to this cheerleading squad, and after he did this training, so the phone rang again. And again and again, and then it just snowballed all from the Black Phillips. So herkie and his wife. Dorothy saw a business opportunity and took it. They really were team. They were almost like. George, Burns and Gracie Allen I mean they were? You don't you probably don't even know who they were? The ME. You're the sweetest had been in this all out. I can see. Her could just light up a room in. Dorsey could to herkie and Dorothy. Get to work. They start with the chair clinics and then expand the business into merchandise we saw the cheerleader uniforms the sweaters in your shoes. The cheerleader shoes necklaces used to be really popular royal megaphone necklace around her neck to show that you're cheerleader, but the resistance of their merchandise business was essentially a crumpled piece of paper that her patented. The Pom Pom give me a give me an e. give me an S, yes. It's just a natural thing. When you're jumping up and down yelling and screaming for your team, you want something to. Shake, herkie created and patented the POM POM Yes. Technically were pronouncing it wrong. There's a whole possibly apocryphal story. He was doing a cheerleader clinic in coli. And so he said to the girls he said okay. I want all you pom pom girls to come over here? The Peo- Am PM and they all started snicker, and and giggling or he found out that in Hawaiian. That was not a very nice girl. Pump girl was not a very nice girl. I mean not very nice girl. Like A. Lady of ill repute was pom-pom girl. And I guess a stripper or something I don't know something. So they changed the name of it to pom Pon with an N. an N.. P. Oem. N I've been calling those crepe paper shakers, a girl Ville Repute for the last. Thirty years of my life. I didn't stick, but it is the official patent name. It's kind of amazing that they're still. They're still around kind of a low tech invention. Yes, yes, and they cost quite a bit. I. Remember my parents, not being sure if they could afford that touch, -ment to my and gear. That were just like. Oh, you gotTa have these. You can't borrow with another girl. So herkie had the cheerleading world in the palm of his hand by the peak of the business they were grossing millions a year, and selling the majority of cheerleading uniforms and equipment bought in the US but the biggest part of his business. cheerleading camps Hercules cheerleading camps are offered throughout the country at these camps. Cheerleaders learn to Gimme a do a hockey jump. Hold their arms in a tight militaristic style. Through these camps, cheerleading got standardized. DEMOC sent our expert. Natalie went to one of her keys camps when she was a teenager. She had a good time. Oh, absolutely, because I come from a very small town, and we went by ourselves, and we were Able to do things like smoke in the dorm room and things like that. Oh, absolutely we look forward to it, but the camps didn't just teach teen smokers how to do basket tosses and pony mounts. They also taught teen smokers Teen Spirit. So one of the most coveted things that you can. Well, it is the most coveted thing you can bring home from cheerleading camp is called the spirit stick. This was another herkie invention. He was at a cheerleading camp in redlands university in California and there was a cheerleading squad that they weren't that good. In terms of just cheer execution, but they were real enthusiastic, and so he went and broke off a twig off of the tree, and handed it to him, and said here's your spirits Dick you're the most spirited squad at this camp, and then started becoming a tradition. Only a few teams got to bring it home. My, my team never brought it home. Too busy smoking cigarettes. It was smoking cigarettes and drank and. But. It wasn't all fun and drinking games. There are also daily lectures at the camp to pump up the peppers and this part is cray. Jessica. Can you give me a z? Z. This part is crazy. One of the things that would happen cheerleading camps. Is You very much? made to understand that you were at the top of the social hierarchy at your high school. If you a cheerleader, so we had a cheer that everybody would do, and it was called C. h. e. early a your s oh. Yes, and we are the best, and we would just all seeing this about ourselves. I start my morning that way. It's very empowering, but Yeah, so the idea that you were. You were the the bomb at your high school. That is crazy. You're right, totally cray. Not like these. Girls just got this idea. Someone told them it was okay and it was passed through generations. That's crazy. There's this great quote from her. Telling some people out of camp When you become a cheerleader, you become an instant, not an instant cup of coffee, an instant success you become instantly popular instantly imitated an instant trendsetter. What you do what you wear how you act what you are everything about. You will be carefully studied in carefully copied by all the other girls. It's fascinating because I mean it's like herkie helped create this idea then as oppressed a lot of high school students. If you are not at the top of the food chain Oh absolutely yeah. Being a cheerleader is being a thing. And there are good thing. Maybe, that's right at one time or another. We all want to be cheerleader. Wanted. Crazy that it lasted this long, and your insight was fought on. There is a strange uniformity to cheer leading, and that was by design by Lawrence her commerce design. It was him herky-jerky. herky-jerky. Boo. I hope we've made some space for you to contemplate other questions during your next four twenty session. Why Garfield is weird. Right. He eats meat loaf. It's I. Don't think that's probably ter. Oh, it's live on. They'll strange though flora I mean I. think that would be really detrimental to a cat. All right. We give me a B. Y.. GimMe a B.. B. Gimme a why why? You were late. GimMe. By. Okay. We're saying goodbye to Jessica but stick with us. Because after a short halftime break, we will be back with a special part to to our cheerleading story. We'll hear about the fallout of her legacy.

Megaphone in this message to this crowd had disastrous consequences. Here's cheerleading historian Natalie atoms. The selection of cheerleading squads would end up becoming one of the most volatile school desegregation issues around the south. Okay listeners the next chapter of cheerleading. History is raw, not raw. That's what we're going to hear about today. Why cheerleading squads were one of America's most volatile desegregation battlegrounds? You had other sports squads basketball football that there wasn't. Much of an issue I'm not saying there were none, but we saw different issues when it came to integrate those cheerleading squads. That's cheerleading experts, Sharia Richardson, she studied cheerleading history during her PhD and she's the founder of the group. Black Girls Cheer. She was also a cheerleader herself and she told us what she loves about. The sport to meet cheerleading is where athleticism meets pageantry so I I loved it. It was like you could be athletic, but you still get to dress up and put on the makeup and the hair, so it was like a nice merge. Assure you, too. That's like my nightmare was was things I want to be part of least pageantry and athleticism. Oh. Oh Oh. My Gosh I. Think those are two great things meaning. You have the ability absolutely I mean they get this show their strength, you know, and in just how fierce they are, but at the same time they get to embrace their womanhood and. You know it's like it's all their athleticism strength pageantry femininity. All. That's there, but it hasn't always been there for everyone because of white supremacy. That's there to. Talk about one particular case, which is in Burlington North Carolina in May of Nineteen Sixty, nine? The school was preparing tryouts for the cheerleading squad. A couple African American students tried out, and there was one girl in particular from the stories. I've read in the stories I've been told. That they just knew she was going to make the squad and she didn't. The students decided they were going to take a stand. So, they ask for meeting with the school officials. That didn't happen. They decided that they're going to march down to the county office and erupted into a riot, and so the National Guard was called in to Burlington and the city was put on a curfew. So one of the nights on the even of that night Leon. A local junior high school student went out, and somehow he got caught in the crossfire return the Burlington Police Department and the National Guard and he was killed a fifteen years old, so what started? As a cheerleading tryout ended in murder of a fifteen year old boy. There were situations like this all across the country where there were. Riots or different types of things that were happening in schools because of the lack of representation on those squads. Why was the integration of cheerleading squads so contentious? Shritah says it has to do with the perception of who cheerleader is supposed to be and what she's supposed to look like. At, the the main issue was just an issue of ambulatory. Who is the American girl? Who is the cheerleader? And what does the American girl look like? We see the American girl, white girl, blond hair, proper put together very deep bow tied spirit fingers, flickering big smile on her face. We see that as a cheerleader. She didn't look like an Afro. At that time. If you think about the sixties and seventies, this is during the era of Angela Davis in the Black Panthers when. Women Black Women were wearing big Afros. That doesn't look like the American girl who was a cheerleader that's well-polished and put together, and that well-polished American girl cheerleader image, the spirit fingers, flickering big smile, white girl traces back at least in part to Lawrence or Kamar. He definitely had a role in part in it, but during that time period. He was only echoing. The thoughts of just society as a whole, he didn't invent this problem, but perpetuated yes, in his in his area, and he and his realm of influence, which was substantial. didn't do anything to help. You know. We we just. Like I said I'm mindful of the Times. You know a mindful of the Times, and that is where society was as a whole. While her continued to spread his brand of paths through the nineteen seventies, cheerleading was changing a whole new style of cheering plus springing up on HP Campuses Sharia remembers the first time she saw it. My father and my mother, both graduated from Historically Black Colleges, my dad loved to go to homecoming and every time we go to homecoming I I never watched the Games. I always wanted to sit close to the cheerleaders. And I, just love watching the cheerleaders who what they were doing what? We call the stop and shake. Stomping shake. This style Kirke is not about perkiness and pony tails is is Sassy the stomping shake cheerleaders. They're stopping. They're making different. Rhythms are beats with their feet and their hands. They're not showing the spirit all the smiles that your traditional cheerleaders are show in their voices can be a little deeper, so it's very different from traditional cheer. Giving an example of a traditional chair and then an example of what changed okay, so an example of a traditional cheer may just be like. Go fight win. You know you're not really selling it. I'm not selling it okay. You know it could be D- d- D-, Defense di Di di defense. That would be more of your traditional. but in a stop and shake. You would be like shoot their ball. Hey, hey, there, BAR! Oh Year! Shoot that ball! Hey, hey, shoot that ball this more. It has a little more rhythm. has more chance if more inspired by. Gospel Music Jazz Music. You. STOMP and shake didn't spread like the herkie style did it didn't have a businessman with the profit motive to help it along? Instead it took root school by school. Cheer Squad Cheer Squad, but it wasn't always welcomed with open arms like when she tried to bring it to her high school in the nineties. So! I went to a very rural high school in a very small town in north. Carolina It was mostly all black school. All black high school thing there were less than one hundred. Individuals, who graduated with me? We had a good sports team though so. That's that's where I was cheering, and initially sharia was cheering Kirke style. Stop and shake had been around for about twenty years, but it hadn't made it to her town. We were doing a lot of the traditional cheerleading. The more military inspired cheers. Very member even at cheerleading tryouts. It was all about precision, being sharp as fun as militaristic precision sounds, cerita was more interested in stomping and shaking at those HP game with her parents she had been taking notes on the cheerleaders. Chance their routines trying to commit them to memory now just watch him, and I would try to imitate them when I got back to school so I would try to teach the Chilean squad because I ended up being the captain. The Samba Cheek style cheerleading. And at that time in our area. Am Nine hundred say it wasn't well received. It was just new, but was it not well received? There were some in the community who loved it, but some of the administrators in our teachers in our coaches were like okay. We can go, but so far be careful. Be careful. How don't move too much? Don't shake much people going to think your fast. You know that was. That was the term at the time SAS, but it was big fast because you're shaking your, you're shaking your hips. And I do remember you know it's funny because you're bringing this up to my recollection. I remember one of the First Times that we did A. A cheer, the crowd kind of looked at us like What are they doing like? The crowd raised an eyebrow. Yeah, they were raised eyebrow. It definitely wasn't a look of pleasure. At all. Shritah says stop and shake raised an eyebrow and produced definitely not the look of pleasure, because it challenged the norm so I think that was kind of the sentiment that this isn't cheerleading. This doesn't look like what we've traditionally seen in even now even on our page sometimes if we post. Athletes do stop and shake cheerleading. People say that's not cheerleading. That's not cheerleading. People within the African American community or white people were like this is not cheerleading. I think I. Think a little bit of both, but I will say more of mainstream America. More whites say that than blacks, but we. I've heard it from both places. Though is not uncommon to kind of hear those same sentiments across different races. But then you'll get a lot of girls. Definitive saying this cheerleading are who who defies what cheerleading is or who's to say, that is not. This conversation is still happening today. Absolutely. Absolutely has you got the professional sports cheerleading that people say that's not Julian as dance. You move over to your all star chilling when that's not cheerleading tumbling signing. Over here to the NBA Shea that's not cheerleader. That's not shake stepping and so there's always that that conversation happening. And that conversation. How do you define? A cheerleader goes back to Lawrence her calmer and that cheerleading image. He created an image that Sharia is working to redefine sixty years later. Where do you think we are today? In terms of breaking that. Image of the blonde pigtailed big smile, white girl as cheerleader. So. You know some days, I think we're making progress. Some days I have hope there's been you know the last couple years when I look at magazines and I'm starting to see more. Girls of color more diversity. Inside Surely magazine one of the larger cheerleading publications. Actually has had. Cover girls who have been all black. All black girls on the front of the cover angel is the deer and knocks recently grace the cover of the magazine. It was like Woo yes. We get a magazine with the black girl on the front. Finally little girls get to pick up magazines and books and see girls that look like them. Always say you cannot be what you do not see and they need those images, and so so that we can change it, and so I'm very hopeful I think. Wow, we're removing. Okay, yes, and then. I feel like we go right back sometimes to to the familiar. Tarita. What. Do you think it did for you being a cheerleader? Confidence a lot of leadership skills. And gives you a little bit of SAS. To.

Save time by packing smart

"How do you stay connected. When you live far away from your friends. What's it like when you reunite for big events like birthdays and weddings four weddings and a funeral is a new Hulu original series raise it reimagined the hit nineteen ninety four movie focusing on the lives of four college friends and they're different relationships and career crises political scandals are exposed posed and love affairs are ignited and doused catch the premiere of the new. Rom Com series four weddings and a funeral July thirty first only on Hulu welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio good morning. This is Laura welcome to the before breakfast podcast this week. We're talking travel tips and how to be efficient and effective on the road. Today's tip is about how to pack smart which generally means light so you don't waste time while traveling so so in my family. We have a rule that if at all possible we don't check bags now. I know it's not always possible but I do think it's a good goal even if you're traveling for a week or so and even if you're traveling with kids here's my reasoning checking bags means you need to get to the airport earlier and you need to wait on the other side of your trip to retrieve your stuff and that's if your stuff shows up with. It doesn't always particularly if you've got tight connection somewhere. We've all heard horror stories of people checking bags and then their stuff not showing up until well into the trip. If at all there's there's actually a store the unclaimed baggage center in Alabama that sell stuff from lost luggage. The store's ads note that thousands of items arrive in the store every day so ponder that the next time you're thinking of checking bags. When I'm traveling by myself limiting myself to carry on's is straightforward enough? I packed my carry on Duffel bag with my work clothes and my running clothes I try to wear anything bulky on the plane. I take my curling iron but hotels have hairdryers. I packed my toiletries and Ziplock bag even though I have T._S._A.. Pre check because sometimes I fly out of the American Eagle Terminal L. at Philadelphia which doesn't have a pre check lane. I buy travel sized bottles of toothpaste in contact lens solution and all my makeup is either under three ounces or is really liquid hotels have shampoo and conditioner so no need to bring those things I use my purse as my other carry on and put my laptop phone sunglasses wallet and Reading Material and there I recognize that I'm a relatively small person but I've seen larger people pack for a week and similarly sized carry on's my husband can pack enough business closed for a week in his leather Duffel bag or small role aboard so he doesn't check bags for business trips either at this point. The only reason we check bags is if we're doing something requiring wiring specialized equipment like skiing. Although I would note that the last time we packed to ski as a family our luggage got lost and we wound up getting a knock on our hotel room door at two A._M.. When it was delivered anyway I think a lot of people assume that when you're traveling with your family you have to check bags new half to pack a lot but with some foresight right in practice I found that this is not always the case? I packed for myself in three children for a week in the U._k.. In to carry on's might Duffel bag and one small role aboard and then my purse and a small backpack for each child the kids wore their jackets to travel and those were the bulky est items. We didn't run out of stuff. The kids reward closed on the plane home but they wore jeans once before that and that's about it what this required was really thinking through what we'd need and what we wouldn't we looked at the weather carefully. We brought Gone and what they will wear each day they just bring the clothes they like and figure they'll make wardrobe decisions as they go. This can waste tons of space. The kids just needed one pair of shoes each they could bring special small stuffed animal but not the whole Menagerie. We didn't indulge in fantasies about what we'd need. If for some unreason we were invited to dine somewhere fancy unlikely with my kids we'd go get new clothes. It probably wasn't worth packing for events that had about eight zero percent chance what's happening but it was great being able to carry on luggage on buses and trains just fine and being able to carry it into our hotel rooms without feeling like we were unduly burdened. Now I recognize of course very small children require a few more items such as diapers or bottles if you're using those however we've also found that many places around the world will sell baby products if you happen to run out unless you're going to the wilderness you can usually get things so for instance when we're going on a beach vacation will bring multiple trial. L. sized bottles of Sunscreen to get under the T._S._A.. Limit and then by more at the beach when we start running low rental car companies will rent booster seats for kids who need them them or I actually managed to squeeze one in a carry on duffle once like I said I get into this packing thing with time management. There's a truism that work expands hands to fill the available space likewise. I think this is true of physical space as well. If you tell yourself that you're only going to bring a small bag. You'll make it work. If you decide you can check multiple bags will you'll probably fill them as well and then wind up dragging them around the whole trip if they show up rather than ending up at that lost luggage store in Alabama I know not everyone agrees with me. I mean I've written about this in the past and people have told me that they like their creature comforts and for them having a whole bottle of their own shampoo along for the ride mixed travel less daunting as with much of life you do In lighter keeps the focus of travel where it should be on experiences not things you need enough stuff that it doesn't hinder the experience chance but we probably need a lot less stuff than we think we do. Do you pack light. I'd love to hear about it. You can let me know at before for breakfast podcast at Iheartmedia. Dot Com in the meantime. This is Laura.

And I just do like Sean Connery on jeopardy, like there's Joes laughing you can't you can't hear it, but like I sense to a weird Annunciation there that I'm like I don't like that. I'm getting over cold, and I can't do my normal radio voice, because just I can't speak from the same place. And it's just causing all sorts of issues. But hey guess what? This brought to you by lucky gutter and federal premium ammunition, whether there were the firefight or you do, in fact, want to worry about that little guy eating more ammo and win. It's time to restock. You can't beat federal. Amunition lucky Gunnar dot com with shipping department. That's always moving at eighty eight miles per hour fired or case American Eagle from lucky gutter on Thursday that my doors shoot before the weekend starts head Tilleke Gunnar dot com today to check out there in stock lineup of federal premium munition remember, unless you're on fire or drowning, you never really have too much ammo, which is also why I'm trying to get through the ads as quickly as possible without making mistakes. Anyway. Joining us a man who never makes any mistakes ever, because he just Zude excellence in everything that he does Bill hours. Hey, bill. What's up? Good morning, six beyond. Yeah. Wish that was. That was true about never make mistakes. I've made plenty. Yeah, I know. I know it's I was trying to, to do my height man thing, but you're ruining it. Your job is very much. What was I going to Billy? Billy blanks with the sham. Well was. Yeah. While so I always like Billy Mays, a little bit better. You know, Billy banks, the karate guy. He's the credit dancing guy. Right. Right. And Shamil was actually another dude. Another height man. I thought, yeah. Yeah. Billy Mays was Oxy clean. Right. He was Oxy Ocoee, claim a lot of stuff though. Yeah. Well, you know, hey cocaine. It's. The heck of a pick me up, but I try not to make fun of people's run ins with the diction because I feel like that I'm setting myself up for a, a horrible, horrible situation, whenever I hit my mid life crisis and just fall completely off the wagon on, on the now. Now, actually, I'm okay I don't think that's going to happen anyway. For those that don't know who are in. What do you do? Bill byers. I'm retired copper after almost twenty six years doing that. Then army before that for six years started a training company in round two thousand six and I was mainly teaching law enforcement career soi guy. Twenty two years on swabs. I was teaching so out related courses in tactics and stuff. And then that morphed into firearms based courses that kind of deleo telling we've been doing that for a bit. And then as retirement was approaching I decide to open the gun courses to, to good American so everybody can come to the gun classes now and I'm still doing closed team courses for law enforcement that kind of thing. So I think I mentioned this last show. But one of the things that I think is really in. It's kind kinda interesting how reputations develop inside in the industry, anyway. But you are known for at least in the inner circles and like the places. That I hang out is being a very exacting shooter and having incredibly high standards for your shooting and for your students shooting you wanna talk about that a little bit. Why you think that? Why you've why you think you've gotten that tag or earn? You know, y y that's true. Not true. Whatever. Man, I don't know. I so I think maybe there is. Well, I don't know. You know. Yeah. I'm I'm I do. I, I don't I do take probably my shooting. I am trying to be good as I can be. I mean so the standards that I have set for myself for about pistol, and car being those are the patch standards now. So the, you know, to, to get one of my patches have to shoot my standard and, you know, class for all the time and there's probably guys in here that absolutely destroy those and that's that's gold. They're my standards. But that's the point is you should be stabbing something to, to gauge where you're at and, and then continuously be adjusting them as well. Right. I mean over the years, I've done a different classes. And, you know, guys say, well, here's my whatever the heck deal and for that you get stuff you know panda bear. And I've always kinda corny man. It's a you know, your, it's your standard shoot it all the time. So of course, you were gonna be able to pass it and it's going to be harder for me to pass it because I'm just now, being exposed to potentially or guys that put him out on the internet. Right. This is my, my thing. And and then guys practice that standard in prep. For the course they can go win the prize. And so, I think in my case where I'm case, the pistol course at least I have fourteen different short drills, I randomly pulled for them for every classes, and you have to pass all four back to back to back, which is really really difficult difficult for me to sound like I come in and pass my own standards all the time. But that's the point of I guess, in my head is I, I have a lot of work left to. Right. I can't I can't even pass my own my own my own standards sometimes. So keep me on his keeps me dry fire keeps me going to the range, I wanna be able to, you know, to do well, so maybe some of that, you know, I guess, maybe Decem degree as cops are in general, I would say are not known as being very good pistol shooters. You know, even though the vast majority of cops will absolutely shoot the vast majority of people, you know what I mean, not, not shooters. But the population of the country, most cop shoe. Better than than that group population, but within the shooting community as you know, we have some guys that really can get down. And so I guess, maybe as a cop that shoots. Okay. There's some surprised by that or some something behind that maybe. Well, that's anything censored I just roll around your does does. And it's, it's interesting to like the silica I, I gotta thing that I do in class in it's, it's not super made the round you up, but it's funny because like I have yet to pass it in class just because it's hard I like your approach better, though. I like I like the, you know, all there's fourteen of them, and you don't know which four you're getting, like surprise, you know, and that's, that's much more. Reflective of real life. I think. Maybe not. And I'm certainly not trying to, you know, I'm not trying to get you with a lesson from the streets or anything. You know. So I've told dudes. Like in the past man with my swat team. And with your vision, I like change into qualification course, up all of the time and nine qualification is not training. But qualification at least on swat drove training. And so if the course if the courses afire were difficult. Then do what would I think would put they put more effort into the time that we were giving them to shoot rather than screw around lunch break, or, or just yuck ended up and doing that kind of because they knew, you know, they had they had the practice Bill to maintain the skill set to pass the qualification and case, it's want, they couldn't pass, and they were kicked off the team. So there were keep behind that as well. So I just wish things up guys. You know what, what, what's your problem what he wants to do that? And my point is I don't want you to be good at a call course I want you to be good. And then any call course you shoot should be easy. If you're just good, right? And so I think maybe that philosophy also is what kind of drove me to do what I'm doing with my standards. You don't know what you're going to get him. Yes. Be good. And then you're passing one. That's. That doesn't make that that is. So like utterly we should really just stop the show right now. Be like, hey be good. And you'll pass them those. I mean that's really all there is to it. You you've just taken the entire. The next thirty minutes and made them completely useless. So I don't know what to say now it's, it's cool though, do because like that's that's it. Like. I don't mean to make it sound so simplistic. I mean it's not like dude, the front sight in the middle and pull the trigger starts disturbing the site. Okay. Well, it's like. In this case, I guess, that's what I and I think he was, you know, kind of my class, I've tried to be afraid of them. You hear some things you're definitely gonna see happen. You know, I'm gonna miss, I'm gonna flood withdrawn scruple reload. I'm gonna do all kinds of stuff. I'm not perfect. But establish what, what are your standards man? And then recognize that those aren't fixed in stone, right? They should be moving to the right as your skill increases in certain things. And I think we all have afflictions affliction that's not the right word how maybe it is. I think all of us are better at some things than other just as, as a as a human, John Johnston. Your, your reflexes your muscles fire your the way you manage something as an example, you might just be better at speed reloading than may through natural affinities. I make sense. Yeah. And so for me to say, well, do a speed reload and this time for you. You're gonna hit that in, you know, in a day's training, sudden, you're, you're hitting our that's done for me to continue to keep doing you should be pushing to the limit. Of your performance not what I deem. It'd be appropriate and so on the standards. I again until guys up front, you know there's there are standards here that I have been moving to the right as my own skill has increased and we'll continue to increase as long as I keep shooting you might come back to my class in two years, and go, wait a minute. I took a note last time this same drill that you're making do you had us doing in this time or to this accuracy standard? And now you're saying this. Well, yeah, because they're may, they're my standards. They're not yours. Right. And so they've been moving to the right as my skill has increased. So get over you wanna pass you to my standard. That's you know, that's something else, too. It's like everybody in, like I don't I don't think enough people acknowledge this all of who I can. And we we got about forty seconds left. So we're gonna have to get into the, the next segment really getting those, but, like all of the high level shooters, that I know. And I'm friends with inside of the tactical community all have areas where they are stronger than other people. You know, when you're looking at, like, Gabe, white, or Spencer, keepers, or. You know, scotch skiers stuff like that. Never heard of those guys. Yeah. I know. You know, it's there's just there's things there that are going on. And we'll talk about that in a second right now, we're talking with Bill blouse. You're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to Belichick radio. Brought to you by surefire, the professionals choice for suppressors rumination tool. Surefire, America's begin a freedom. This segment brought to you by Wilson. Combat Wilson combat makes the finest custody until Evans and scattered since nineteen seventy seven Ligasi of quality innovation and service. Learn more about their farms and accessories as well as the nine which offers discriminating shooters, nineteen eleven magistrate accuracy, superior organics and concealed conceal ability with modern service pistol capacity and reliability at WWW dot Wilson. Combat dot com and the battery just sorta ran dry there in the middle of that. And I'm like, man, but so before the break, like I mentioned, those shooters, I've gotten to watch all of them shoot. Pretty pretty well. And they all do things a little bit different. They're all stronger at different thing that just interesting like. You mentioned speed reload, which are for me actually something, I'm horrible at if I had to pick like a stupid human trick that I was pretty okay at presentations, to a small target pretty quick. Like a three by five at seven like, I'm pretty okay at that seem to be, you know, so that's always like something on the keepers test. I can run that pretty consistently fast. Whereas other guys can do other things while en. And I think the and I get your thoughts, I think the, the urges select concentrate on that thing that I'm already good at getting better at that. And it really should be the opposite. Right. Yeah. For sure. No doubt about that at all man. And I think that's where if you're if you're tracking your performance and saying where you're at to me that, that is what gives me my roadmap. Right. I mean, I might think that, you know, in your example, I might think that I'm really fast the bucket on a three by five, but then you compared to two larger body of good shooters ammo. Right. And you know, two tenths of a sign, I'll see minimize sorry, minimize stuff. But well they'll say you know what you're doing. You know, you only a quarter of a second faster than me. Well, you know, I hate to tell you, but in a in a three second drill quarter second is that's a but kicking matters attorney of time, percentage wise right now maybe over the course of a three minute drill. Of course second is irrelevant, but don't minimize the effort and the time, it took me to consistently be a quarter of a second better than you. So I wanna I wanna see those things. And then I think everything is the way I'm tracking my performance in and part of my classes, talking about that stuff. And how do you do it? I can add a glance. I mean I can pull it my an exile spreadsheet right now and see where I was living on speed reload 's for years ago, compared to now consistent performance. Not just the, the one miracle run that I got in there in what that allows me to do that. And I'll look at ago what the heck's going on here. My my, my speed reload time has gotten slower in. And so I'm I can see it in my head forced me to go best because you have been practicing on enough, or potentially it was a gearchange. Right. You had a magma got rid of it, or I had a magazine extension and got rid of it or switch to a different kind that has now you know, the base plate is, is more slanted than flat, or whatever the heck it is. And so it forces me to go, I gotta get I have to work those little bit. So it goes into my dry fire regimen. And then obviously my, my life ourself. I might spend more time. Doing that versus, you know, shooting VA, slow fire trying to hit ten act, even though that's to me. That's fun. I know guys like that's boring. But to me, that's a really challenging drill. Yeah. But if I'm spending too much time doing that than the other skill start to say. So I wanna say absolutely want to force myself, you know, to work on the things. I'm not so good at so. If you had to pick an area where you're like, what would it be for you? The gun shooting. Sure. I think that my, my speed out of the bucket, and it's one that you mentioned that is not it is less than impressive. You know, I I know on average right now attack alter again my history. That's what I should you news outside a tactical type of rig when I'm teaching out of that rig, I'm around one point three seconds on an agent circle at seven yards. Right. And there are guys that are much much, much faster than that. You know. And I've tried to push it and, you know, in the past, I have definitely gone on the, the quest for the sub one second draw, and I can do it. I have done it. The pass where, you know, I would say percentage wise I was hitting that accuracy standard more often than not. Sometimes they were getting some, MRs. So I, I guess, for if you're a competition based guy, or if you're dude, that's, you know, has been a lot of competition, based instructors, you come in. And in comes my slop like performance out of the holster, you know, maybe that's not so very impressive to you. I think I can make stuff up with with my split times. But, you know, like tell classroom, and I'm not I am not a competition shoot 'em defensive shooter in the time that I spend trying to get very, very consistent with a sub one second draw is time. I could have been doing other things to to around my game out a little bit more on to be, you know, potentially giving me more contingencies to rely upon if it's not just a straight up drawn shoot type of advant at. And then I think there was someone second draws, which is great skill fantastic. You know, I can actually look then go man that appreciate the effort that went into you doing that. But I think that you're predisposed to fire the shot. Yeah. And so. To make that times I make sense. I mean, generally, I don't care. I'm gonna jerk this thing in that shots coming out. No matter what. So if migrants a little bit screwy if my sight picture isn't really what I wanted to be if it's more of a natural point of aim slash grow sideline. It's lash, whatever the heck type of event to make that time for me that is insufficient. You know. I would have our really, really hate. Well, you know, I remember I it's, it's stuff that I think that you could that you could you could have been done been doing are things like working on your weekend shooting and other defensive side. Certainly with the amount of four force engagements had over the course of my career. I've been hitting the hands a lot. And so if that happens in training, then it's probably gonna happen in real life. And that's what I'm focusing on. So my hands are gonna get shot and get damaged and is probably good. Be good at shooting. Strong had only weekend only having metrics for that. And then just like, you know, we're talking about speed, but I can look at my sheet, and see where I live on a Bill drill. Strong hand on gotta build real. We can't only and make sure that I'm putting in the requisite work to be to be good. Knows arenas as well. To that. I don't think in a lot of people and I it was funny because I had Gabe white on. By the time this won't areas at all been two weeks ago. And one of the things that we talked about was like. Where those two worlds meet and don't meet as far as the TIMMY versus the gamers side of the house. And like you mentioned, the sub second draw, and it's kinda like he's like I can't I can't do that. Reliably have I been able to do in the past? Yeah. Absolutely. But I have, you know, I have chosen to focus on other things because, like sub sub second-row cool. I think one one is okay. Ish in like I can live at a one one with a lot less maintenance, and I can't like a point nine which requires a lot of maintenance, you know, and where does you know what I get out of that. And something else, too. You know that's really only useful. When you have already decided to shoot from out of the holster end the round is going to definitely happen. And that is not. In my limited experience, and, and I would for you, but I it sounds like we're in agreement. That is not often the real world, you know, often in the real world, the gun is coming out. Maybe you're gonna shoot maybe not, but you're not, you know, something might change between the holster and the muzzle aligned on target and having an allowance for that as kind of important. Absolutely. I think so. Maybe on the maybe something shaped me as well. And, and this is not an admonition of competition guys. And I'm not definitely not a guy that goes, you know that's the game or crap. And this is, you know, real the real streets nonsense. I mean I ton of the stuff I'm doing is was garnered from and and validated through competition. Right. I mean, there's absolutely some efficiency and some accuracy, and some speed and all that stuff that, that we need to look at as well. So I'm trying to get there. I think that the thing that drives me more than anything is the number of MRs in world shootings that occur in. Sometimes I woke is, is the skill set or yeah. I guess this would be a skill set thing. Or was it a lack of deliberations? And I remember the treating quote a long time ago from bat Masterson. He said he met, many men of the west whose courage on question, and their skill was unmatched and they fail to lesser that Atta deliberation the equation. So that whole for shot being accurate piece, I think it matters. And so for me the extra point three decision, making time that site ver- -cation time that's confirming that. I'm absolutely gonna hit what I should at. I you know very early on. I remember going to, you know a call where this concert. Let, let me interrupt you right there. So hold that thought, because we gotta go to break, and then we'll pick right up talking with Bill blowers. You're listening to ballistic radio. Welcome back to radio. Brought to you by sure-fire the professionals choice for suppressors women tool. Surefire, America's beginning freedom. This also brought to you by Sherifi or no your target and what is being on it? But how can you really know your target by shining, really bright light? And that's where's your fire comes in from the new twelve hundred Luminita to hand held her five hundred Luminita DC won t hand held to the six hundred and fifty Lumine stiletto pocket light. It's rechargeable or the thousand Lumine upgraded extra hundred Alterra surefire, make sure you never have to yell is ease light ever, again surefire, the professional choice for suppressors when the nation tools. So before the break Bill, you were saying very early on. You went to a call, and then I interrupted you. So this is a over, of course, crazy a bunch of. But, you know to, to do did said shoot at each other. They missed everything. Right. Not neither one of them was hit. Yeah. But I remember a little girl got hit in the. Process, you know, she's hanging out in her children her house. And all of a sudden bullets comes in balls. And and she gets hit and she didn't die from it. And I guess the criminals knew that don't matter so much. But, you know, I cannot fathom the thought of missing and causing the death of an innocent person. You know, the child out of trying to tell your heart strings a little bit, but that incident did strike me or did affect me. I guess, to some degree aid to recognize that criminals or are. I can't curse on your show. They're really not nice fellas that about stuff like that. Right. But as a professional police officers certainly something I should be thinking about. And so you have to come to grips with, you know, maybe a little bit slower that may cost me my life, but at least I'm not taking a life and the process. So I think you know, hey if you look at statistics and different studies, and, you know, different crap within our industry man, that most people would tell you that one point five second draw hitting an eight and was seven yards which tend to be the industry. Standard type of thing is, is good. And so if I'm slightly faster than that, and I can still process and and, and make decisions wellbeing faster than that. Then I think I'm in good shape, you know, and I'm not going to stand there and just shoot me them and be doing things trying to, you know, make you miss if you're if you're might have is so anyway, man, I, you know, sometimes I look at some of the. And I appreciate it to. That's on the background. You know, the whole PR thing and, and trying to improve your, you know, this that, and I just love the fact that humans are, are constantly looking to do that. We talked about last time, but the four minute mile was was never supposed to happen for human being right. And you got guys routinely, crushing today, so I can understand. Why do look at Bill drill and go mom, and I'm gonna get that down to one point seven. I'm gonna go one point six on that because that's just what humans do. Right. They wanna push a little. But if you look at the history of that it's funny that we've been talking about this. I just wrote something I'm not patriot account about it. But Bill Wilson who invented that drill? I mean he p flat put there's they man get when we when we brought up we thought for for a master little shooter up two seconds with a Ray gun and race holster raise rig was good. But for defensive shooters. It was always meant to be a sub three drill. And so, I mean, he recognized that gear and the skill set. You know, change change the game a little bit. And so if you think about a man that the average do if you can draw from whatever you, however, you're, you're, you're pissed off. You can draw into a Bill drawn three seconds or less is that's getting after it, man. That's that is a good good run right on with all as right? But guys will push that. And all of a sudden now, if you can't do it sub to then you're some type of, you know, horrible shooter, or, or, or whatever the case might be, but think of the effort that went into that sub to run for a single drill, who's the objective was just can you track your sites during Rico? Right. Can you manage the gun at speed and you can't three seconds? We'll absolutely demonstrate to you whether or not you're tracking your friend site on a search string. I think if I can do that. And it's one of my metrics, I try to go three can con- consistently on a Bill. Then I'm happy for what I'm doing not again. Right. If your if your objective is to is to go out and win competition than brother. You. Probably teach a lot you. Speed your thing up. You know, try to run a one six one seven Bill. But because that's, that's, that's your back about ain't might well, and that's the other thing, too, is, I think what. What a lot of people miss out on is that when, you know, when certain dude start talking about this, and they start talking about what they're trying to do. What you're listening to is literally the best people in the world. Try and raise the bar amongst themselves. Right. And you know. I don't think and the other problem too, is like people are like, well, the best people in the world are due stagger, and Vogel. And, you know, Michelle and, and those dudes and Sevigny and what no, those are the people that are at, like God like levels of performance. Those are not the best people in the world. Those are the dudes that are. You know, above that, like the best people in the world are underneath you know what I mean? That, that kind of makes it's like you're, you're, you're comparing like epic level, legendary. Things to like the actual, and I don't think I don't think there's enough recognition of there are people that routinely post things on the internet. Like, here's this thing that I did shooting and like, bro. That's really good my urine the point zero zero zero one percent of people in the world that could do that. And they're like, well, yeah, but I could be faster and like maybe and that's cool. But like you need to understand, like the thing that you're doing. That's really, really flip in hard. You know. And I don't I don't think there's enough of that, you know. No. I agree man. It's a. Well, you know, it's like a I mean do that. You know, I I don't take baseball. Now's your guy that yet runs one hundred RBI year. That's you know, that is that is an outstanding record of performance. But if you look at the, the legendary names in the game that's pales in comparison. Right. So I think we look at that and we go. That's not so great look look with a baby did. Two. They Bruce like you said, come on, man. The dude is an outlier. Right. He's a complete freak of nature. And I you know, some of the. I mean, I'm not that absolute do not take away from Volvo. Those guys that have absolutely put the work in. And, you know, has it ain't like they picked pistol and became phenomenal with absolutely work hard. But there is there's gotta be something in both natural ability, and then I think a drive that because I think paternity to right. I mean you get to a certain level than and different things start to open up for ya. And now you're not paying for him you nation, you know, potential, you, can, you can actually pay your mortgage and buy groceries doing the thing you like to do. And all those things out right on the cops, I man, it's like, well, you know, a lot of cops up well him they don't write a lot of Katcher pretty good. I think goes right to what you're talking about here. A lot of pretty good compared to the vast majority of people in this country, and then clues people that don't touch guns ever. The, the general population. Most criminals suck with guns than you do. Right. Listen. Let's not make them be some, you know, remarkable shooters. They just they're they're vicious, they're violent, right? They'll do you in a heartbeat. And so the my set piece may be different than what you and I might have as, as human beings. But anyway, I got some skills them behind it. And so most concert do very good at that. But we look at the job of cop, you know, you're. I, I think I was pretty good at the swat stuff and all of the tasks associated with being a swab guy in a swat team later in and that stuff if you, you know I'm looking at my desk right now and I have a little a little to train on a Choo Choo train on it guys gave me and it says it says Bill killer trained, blowers. And you would think that does Kurai bars must be. He's betting on that is a homicide that I went to that I deemed the guy was hit by the train, and he was stabbed ninety two times with a screwdriver. So if you want me to come investigate, you're the homicide of your child, then you're, you're an idiot there. Guys far better at that. Job than me. You should. I'm getting. Yeah. Now out shoot the guy that's bringing the magnifying glass and finding the clues all day long. But he'll run me ragged when it comes to running a homicide desiccation, or, or whatever the case might be within law enforcement and to him. That's what matters. Right. That is the important pieces being good at that part of the job versus the shooting. Now he shoots. Okay. He's not, you know, he's obviously hitting the qualification standards, meeting, some department level of performance, the, the department never tested me on homicide investigation. Right. Well, that that is a that the test of life comes into that one. And that's why I got my little thing that says William Keller training because I can't recognize different guy being stabbed to death and being hit by a train. Why mean you know, I guess we've all got our talents and strong suits. And whatever we. To go to break. And then I'm I'm gonna I'm gonna giggle myself a little bit. Because that's, that's a flooding story up. Sorry. We're talking with Bill blowers. You're listening to ballistic radio. Back to degrade integrative brought to you by surefire, the professionals choice for suppressors nation tool. Surefire, America's beacon of freedom. This brought to you by big Tex outdoors dot com. Big Tex outdoors dot com, the best place for you to find all your everyday carry needs at the absolute best prices maybe need all the lumens from surefire at the lowest price, no problem spend too much time alone in your room.

Doors dot com has like he's a good man and thorough. I like everybody likes like and you'll like to visit big, Tex outdoors dot com today and find out what happens when every customers a friend not just in order. So we've got Bill hours on. We're talking about man. I dunno. Whatever comes up. Right. And. Which are my favorite shows, honestly, and it seemed like to the you know. It's almost like the dudes that are good at something do too good of a job of saying, nothing special. And like I understand I understand why. Why you wanna do that, so that you don't alienate your friends and peers and co workers, right? 'cause no one wants to be around the dude. That's like all I'm awesome. Check out how awesome I am. But there's also another component to that too, where you're really dealing with the service to the people that maybe aren't where you're at yet. And you're not saying, oh yeah. That thing that I just did. That's really that's not easy like that. Super not easy. You know what I mean? And especially in shooting. So. Where's the line there? So first of all, I, I like I a big I really is an and the train murderer guy he got caught. So I completely box that, that whole thing able to patch it together. Go get the guy team effort. Right. Right. I wonder you know, think about this man. Do you think that this being a male dominated type of thing, right, shooting is typically more males than females in? Do you think that has to do with Matiz MO and? You know, I you know, honestly, what I think it has to do with. Because this is something I've sort of thought about a little bit. I think that we've done really bad job of delineating between healthy ego and unhealthy ego. Right. Right. And for anyone to dedicate, the introspection necessary to become world class at anything you have to have an ego, you have to be emotionally invested in you have to really care about what happens when you were out doing whatever it is. You're doing whether you're a power lifter. You know, a runner of shooter, I don't care what it is. If you're good at it, you have an ego. The problem is that we tell everybody. Oh, yeah. Man egos are bad unhealthy goes, certainly bad. And if you're like, oh, I'm better than everybody else because I note. No wrong, let's back up from that. But like there needs to there this, I I'm this is unpopular, right? But there's got to be a little meal of involved for for you to get good at something. I think I'd like to hear your thoughts on that. No. I agree. Man. If you if you look at the definition of ego, I think it says he's feeling self confidence. I mean there's some good things that are in there, right? Yeah. And like you said, I guess when you go if you're, you know, I guess if you take it to an extreme or whatever the heck than natural we start to pay or maybe it's just an easy word to throw at a guy that does thank he's better than everybody else. I you know, I, I don't know. Man. I think without question, I think I must have an ego in order to believe that anybody would wanna come to my training, right. So that there's a cell count confidence piece. I, I think that I should feel like I have something worth saying to folks. Otherwise, I think you also recognize that right. Student question around. Listen this guy. That's I mean, I I've been across with the first thing of the guy's mouth is I'm not an expert in my all size. Why the heck in my hair, then I'm paid to listen to the expert. You know, some of the other thing is like when they're saying that they're lying. I mean, they know they're, you're, you're saying it because there's this expectation right? So if we look at the definition definition of ego person's sense of self esteem, or self importance. For any especially on the man performance. I think when you step up to do whatever it is. You're about to attempt to do you need. Absolutely no. For a one hundred percent fact that you are going to crush that now whether or not, you end up crushing is really beside the point, you need to at least have that talk with yourself ahead of time. Like I got this, and that involve because otherwise, you know, new see it all the time, doodle, seven all I don't know. I hope I don't mess up. And it's like whatever you think's going to happen is going to be what happens brother. You know, and the problem becomes in this is an of course, we get into it at the end of the show. So we're not gonna wanna time to dive into it. The problem becomes, is that oftentimes from the outside that looks like something that is not what I'm trying to convey, number one in his not, you know is not very socially accepted. You know, if you know if you introduce anyone, right? And the first thing that said he is ham, really good at this. Like there's an immediate this taste win when that is conveyed and it might be true. My not be true that could be super good at. But like we don't like hearing, that, while the problem is you kind of have to know that you're super good at something to get super good at something. I don't know does that make sense. Yeah. It does. I mean, I, I would hope that anybody hanging out of training shingle in, we're talking about. So, you know, for, for shooting, some guns. It has got some seventies and skill that we know that's not true. Right. I mean I mean they're absolutely some dues that shouldn't be teaching at this point. You know, maybe like a brand new shooter, you know, how much skill level do you really need to teach? My sister, who's never fired a pistol a life how to shoot a pistol. You know what I mean? Yeah. Sheep, aggressive than maybe she needs to go keep working her way up the mountain. So she gets to the blind master at the top. So, you know, I, I don't know. The competence piece for sure. Needs to be if you're gonna stand in front of a group and run address, and I have absolutely screwed drills up in front of classes, and things happen. Whatever I'm doing, but I think it's the. The percentage of performance versus percentage of fail. Right. And I've always said, I wanna I wanna be going a solid eight in everything. So breaching in mission planning and internal CQ be tactics techniques procedures. You know, I absolutely screw things up inside the house. But it's at least above ninety percent going acted solid a most of the time. And I think that's really one of one of the things just endeavor to do that. Right. Just just get a man, you don't have to be perfect just getting a and I, I do have been accused of having high myself, and then, of course, makes me wanna have high standards for others, particularly those that I'm working with. But I don't know if that's necessarily bad thing, tickly in the profession that I just retired from where there's a lot of line, you know. So I, I think in this game I were. I mean if you're shooting just before fun hobby. And then, you know, you go home and December your pixel and. And put it away and never touch it again. And then it's just a fun hobby thing. Then maybe it says important, but if you're carrying that thing around with you all the time. There's a reason for that. Right. And, and the repercussions of that thing getting dragged out outside of training outside the range are huge. Obviously, your life your family's life other people's lives, you know, doing the right thing and still going to jail, you know, there's just you better be solid man. You'd better be solid. And, you know, the conference basis and needs to be there in that example, as well on the legal side of it, what you're about to do is, is absolutely legally found to keep you from going to prison, and in the skill side to make sure that whatever it is. You're shooting at two to save your own hide is what is what catches every single one of those bullets you don't end up, you know, my, my kid, you know, killed behind the shooting at what you'd be it's untenable to me. I think it's that would be. I came into that, Michelle. Yeah. I mean so personally, if I put around into someone's little girl, or little boy, or something like that. The next thing that's happening in a free available moment is I'm gonna eat a gun like so a miss a misses a death sentence for me personally with my morals and values system. So it can't afford it can't can't be a thing that happens when everyone's do know. They do. I mean we know they do they're going to happen. Yeah. Yeah. But like I don't, I don't have to think that's okay when I'm training right? Exactly. Yeah. And at least not not when I'm doing something where I am in one hundred percent accountability mode, if I'm pushing the no k and like, if I if I acknowledged. But, like, if I'm okay, this is not acceptable right now. And then it happens anyway. Yeah. That's not acceptable right now anyway, where at the end of the show, dude, if people want to train with you. Where can they do that? A website, WWW dot tap hyphen. Rack dot com has my calendar on it. What's coming up, muscle on Facebook, Instagram, all occasions Facebook post the next ninety days and then I have my patriot onsite. If you're insisting that thing and, and formation is on there as well. Nice definitely a class that I I'm going to try and make this year. It's on my, my very short list of things. I wanna come check out the Bill. I really appreciate you taking time in. No do that by back talk. If I can't go done already always that time we buy yet. Sure does sure does a say further? Okay. All right. Thank mix. Make sure you check her website. Ballistic radio dot com, like our Facebook page at Facebook dot com slash video. And hey, keep leaving those Pfizer unite choose.

Enterprise Innovation with Amber Reimer and Rebecca Gutierrez - Ep 72

"There's going to be pupil in a large organization that just aren't comfortable. And that's okay. It's about finding those people who are okay with a little immaturity. Welcome to the Schmidt list, the podcast for people dedicated to managing successful projects developing impactful products and building engaged teams. And now, here's your host Kurt Schmidt. Amber. And Rebecca thank you for joining the on the show today. Things are having us. Yes. Excited to talk to you both. So today, we're going to talk a little bit about innovation in the enterprise and product development, and all that sort of stuff. But before we get started. Maybe amber, would you wanna tell me a little bit about your background for the audience can know who amber is share semi careers started at a fintech startup by the name of netspend in Austin, Texas, and there are actually started in marketing and my third day on the job. My boss said, hey, we need a Email life cycle program, and you need to come up with a strategy design it and then figure out how to get it built. And so just that. And I didn't know any better. So I said, okay. And so I think you know, that was really the beginning of product for me and understanding that if you can think of something you can create it and get it built. And really loved that creativity in the power that comes with that. And the reward of seeing that, you know, come to life. And so I was kinda hooked from that point on for years. Their four years at a startup can be a long time. Right. Exactly. Thirty years, right? That was being looked at as the old woman in the room. And so it was time to get kind of some different experience. We happen to be doing a project for target at the time and had a conversation with one of my partners from target about potentially getting back up north closer to family and six weeks later. I was driving my Volkswagen Jetta up. I thirty five wondering what did I do? So I went to work in this cool little team within the financial services area at target called product, design and development, but financial product design and development, which was often confused even at target. But we do a lot of cool things within the financial services pyramid. We worked on the very early beginnings of Mobil gift cards, the very earliest workings of mobile payments. And so it was a great space to land in target coming from a startup because we were expected to be nimble. However, quickly realized just how slow, you know, especially if I national services organization within a very large retailer can me and it was. Yeah. Regulations on regulations. And then, you know, started to network out within target to find my people if you will right by the other people that were looking to move fast disrupts create new experiences and through trying to get target gift cards on Facebook. At that point in time. Facebook was just supporting the sale of e gift cards, so like Starbucks had done a little web app. I think American Eagle had done little web app. And I thought gosh, you know, everyone loves target gift cards. Why aren't we on Facebook? And basically, my boss said you have the time, but we don't have the budget. So if you can go figure out who has the budget. You know, you can do it. So it was a great opportunity to actually get out and meet more people from target digital or target dot com. At the time and happened to through that find the people that were starting or the person Sarah Peterson who is starting the social experience team at the time. She was the only person and at that point she had been told to focus on. Wind should target be integrating with social platforms should target me integrating with social platforms and then figuring out the strategy around that. Yon? So we kind of hit it off. And and and I decided to go and work with her and and building that social experience team, and we got to do a lot of really cool things. Because at that time leadership didn't care about social they thought it was a fad. I mean, I remember so many quotes about how Facebook is the hot thing that will be gone tomorrow. This was in twenty eleven or twenty twelve right? Exactly. Right. It's nothing today. So yeah, we were able to really play and partner was startups to you know, work outside kind of the standard bureaucracies of building within target and build some really cool little quick test and learn web apps around testing different versions of social commerce. And so through that we spun up several different experiences one of which then became cartwheel initially referred to as social savings at the time. And you know, we thought cartwheel was going to be just another one of these little web apps, and that we would all tend to doing our normal jobs. And then one day, I was told that cartwheel was my fulltime job. And and then we built that for the next five years. Once cartwheel got to stage of maturity, I was really missing that the Bill the idea Asian creation side of things, and I had the opportunity to jump to the store the future team again at target to kind of go and recreate that swat team mentality of kind of pulling sneeze together from across the org thinking differently thinking outside the box and really creating from scratch this store the future experience for target. We did that we got about two weeks away from actually breaking ground in constructing these store of the future and unfortunately, much of innovation was cut at that time. And so I knew it was time to move on from tar. Guit and find some, you know, a different place where I could create an innovate and ninety eight and I landed at go-cart labs where obviously a help other clients build their products and disrupt their businesses I did that for a year. And then I welcome. My first daughter into the world wanted to take time to focus on her. And so did that for six months, and now I'm an independent product consulted looking to work with other really smart people and create great products. Well, thank you for sharing them. Rebecca, tell us a little bit about your background. How did you guys met at targeted? We met at target you doing before you showed up at target. Yeah. Before that I worked at a few local agencies Urinetown always on the media side, my career really started in traditional media because back then that that wasn't media, right? Digital media didn't really exist. And so I worked at several agencies throat Minneapolis and Saint Paul and then probably around. Two thousand eight to two thousand seventeen thousand eight that's really where we saw the shift in the marketplace to more digital. And so that's where my my interest was Pete to my started focusing more on just the digital media discipline and did that first years, and then saw the the convergence of of media and technology, and so since then I've really been focused on media technology marketing technology started at target was recruited to target in two thousand ten to help bring digital to their media strategy team at the time after about a year that I moved over to the social media team. Which is where I'm at the lovely Uber. I was her counterpart so Ambrose focused on more the development and the social experiences and building that and I was focused on the marketing so together she and I built experiences together. She built the framework we would ideally it and enter it on concepts. And then I would build the marketing plan how we're going to get users to the experience in how we're going to get them to you. It. And that's I mean said it perfectly. But that's really how the story of cartwheel came to be and together, amber. And I am Sarah. We were essentially the the founding team from the social team who created Carville. Cool. It seems so interesting to me the whole idea of car wheel and how it came about. Because a lot of other large organizations. Don't really have that same sort of story. Right. It's even though the all have sort of these innovation labs and all these different things. It's it's rare to see something like a car wheel get born inside organization. What do you think was why why did that happen? When people often ask that question. And I always say, it was ripe right people right place right time because it truly did happen. Pretty organically met was almost as a like a force of people banding together to kind of take advantage of all these things that were happy. In the marketplace. Right. You had social platforms. We're just coming out opening up their platforms to be built upon integrated with people were really excited about apps, right? The iphone had only been out for a few years. The app store was still a relatively new thing. Mobile was still very very new. I mean, we were for sure very much web. I and on top of that. I think target at the time was really looking to make a stamp on digital. It was right after the re platforming target dot com. The first three platform of target dot com. Sh you know, by very much public accounts didn't go so well, and so leadership needed to have a win, frankly. And so that's where I think right people right place right time in you know, in terms of the the experience at self. Obviously what we the idea that we started with is. Isn't the thing that you know, it grew to be right? And I think the important thing again was just that kind of organic authentic volition of the team which allowed us to evolve that initial idea Rebecca sort about executive sponsorship because I feel like thing like this couldn't have been born without the right people clearing a for its plus also change as much as you're telling me it did over time because I seen so many times where you come in. You're like we're going to do this innovative thing. And then six weeks later, if you were to come back and tell that stakeholder who just went and told all of their people in the boardroom, then we're doing this thing, and you come back, and you're like, no, actually, we're gonna do this thing. They'd be like, well, I just told everybody that we're doing this thing is the future of our business and all this stuff. And now you telling me it's different like, I imagined how important that having that executive sponsorship. It was hugely important. I think amber was was talking about are listening to it. You know, what really helped us? And helped our executive sponsors at the time sell this idea through is. There was just this trigger that needed to happen internally. There was a tipping point. Right. We were we had felt in some of our digital experiences. We had a new CMO who really was looking to make his stamp. And so all these things kind of working together created the perfect storm press right people right right opportunity right time, but we had amazing executive sponsors who were willing to take the risk in think. That's one thing that for any, you know, executive sponsors out there in our executives in a large organization. You have to you have to not be afraid to take risks. You have to be bold. You have to be created as we were talking about this before, but you have to be willing to upset people and upset status quo because that obviously will happen. But it's hugely important. You need that sponsor to to breakdown blockers and barriers for you. And to give you the the freedom to to just go put the the people that they trust with the expertise to make this happen. And just let them go. And I think. You know, not just internal executive sponsors, but also external executive sponsors, which you know, that situation would be unique based on your business. But for us, you know, we definitely couldn't have done what we did without really close partnership with Facebook and really other large tech organizations at the time that we're all kind of sharing the same story that we were sharing with our leaders at the time to try to push forward this product model about the benefits of working in agile in product, what that meant, you know, the importance of moving fast and being nimble on the importance of flat organizations, the importance of Colocation, you know, which sounds silly now. But you know, I ve very much. We'll always remember clearly when I wanted to go to India to sit in the same room with my developers who are building our experience at the time. I very clearly was told we could never have business sit in the same room as developers that will never work that will never work. Right. And you know, we we can say all we want to leadership, but really having those external partners that are especially respected in the area of technology and in the area of digital especially thinking about where target was with digital at the time. You know, these are the the experts in the area having them push the same goals in same suggestions really helped us as well as interesting because so speaking of those outside stakeholders one of the things that I constantly run into is especially in larger organizations. We'll even well, we even small ones they don't wanna show something that's kind of have make two or something that's not fully polished or fully realized. And and I feel like that's held back so many organizations in the ability to get those stakeholders externally excited about things and seeing how the company changing how do you coach somebody around that? I mean. Mean you both lived the idea of it. I mean how and especially target which is such a strong brand the idea of showing sketches the people and stuff must have been insane. Yeah. I mean, I think for sure at first it was, you know, I remember having conversations with my marketing counterparts about are we going to bring this product to to market into launch. And how we were going to do in an a very soft and quiet way. Which was completely the end to this of of how target approaches? Shoot a kid. And like literally have in a meeting with them and saying, okay. This is what we're going to do in the masking level. Where's the deck? Will I don't have one. Where do you mean? Like, it was they just could not believe that. I would dare you that. But eventually you have enough conversations like that. And you know, people see people see them them. And but again, it goes back to like, you can't be afraid to upset people in the sasquatch because it absolutely will happen and people are completely reticent and uncomfortable with change. But anything worth doing requires that? And I think you know, to realizing that your experience or your product is going to be so much better. Not the more people by would say, I guess the more diverse viewpoints that can you know, you can bring to the table. And obviously, you know with a brand like target or very fortunate. We're very fortunate to be able to tap on to the expertise of, you know, the Facebooks and and other partners. But you know, some of those thinking back to some of those ideas sessions, and those white working sessions we had around the experience at that time. I mean would never have happened in the way. Or would never have been as productive. If it would have only been the same people that we stare at every single day. Right. You know, because you need to shake it up and in order to think outside the box a lot of times. I think that's because the way people innovate has changed right before it was you get a couple of scientists in a lab with like security and stuff, and you don't let them leave for like a year and outcomes this new product right now, it's like people running through the streets with. Little flip decks on their phones. Like are like see what you think it's all the open. Right. And I think that some of these larger older organizations has struggled very hard because these executives and these people have they felt like they were put in their place because of the decisions that they make right, and that's part of their job. But a lot of their jobs have changed where it isn't. I'm command and control. Now, I'm like -education and support. I feel like some people have missed that sort of calling because nobody's really set at nobody's came out. And said this is the new way we work in this is this is what your job is. Now, executive sponsor in this. Your job is in people really haven't had a lot of those conversations. But in that case as you were talking about earlier, amber, if I'm in highly regulated thing like healthcare or financial tech or any of those sorts of organizations. It is hard to it is hard to test. I'd really like to hear your opinion. Like again, if I'm trying to actually make minimum viable product. But I have to follow hippo regulations. More government, tax info or I mean. How do I get around that had space like how do I get up at that? Yeah. I mean, obviously it's much harder. But you know, some of the things that come to mind. Are you know are there? Super solid fundamental aspects of what you're trying to do that could provide the guardrails for your sandbox, for example. So could you take those pillars or your guardrails through the standard approval or review process with your regulators while you continue to innovate or design the experience within those guardrails the other thing that comes to mind is when we were trying to keep things incredibly confidential prior to the cartwheel launch. We honestly did not do by any means robust user testing mainly for that fact, in so as a team we really felt like we needed to bootstrap something. Right. And so I mean one weekend we actually had our moms come in. And we couldn't even couldn't even access the experience outside of the target network. So we literally. Had to bring our moms to our little workspace on a Saturday, take them to the only store with the one register that it would work at and you know, that sounds really silly. But honestly, it was super informative because we felt like, okay, if our moms get this. I mean, no offense to our moms. But if our moms get this, then and then at least we know directionally that were we're doing something, right? It makes sense. So if I'm if I'm listening to this Rebecca, and I'm thinking to myself like where do I where do I start when I'm trying to find those groups like sure, I've got my mom, right? But let's say, okay, fine. I'm drinking the Kool aid. You guys got me. I'll make something really lo fi or something. And I'll start showing people where do I start just just people in the hallway? Do I cost people and on the street like what's a great starter plan for somebody? You know, I'm a huge proponent and fan of the friends and family groups take numbers point getting your mom's. But, but we also have done is sent an Email at tell close friends, and then ask them to send it to their friends. Okay. What we want? You to do is be a part of something we want you to help us shape shape than the next best product in the future, right? I get them excited. Something that we talk about a lot is like argues of the our guests. They they helped us shape it, and they felt great about being able to do that. They felt great about having the opportunity to tell us. What features? They liked him and features they didn't. And I'm s- became somewhat of a badge of honor for them, really. And this group. I mean, it can I mean the the entire lifetime of of the app we had it open. They were still posting every single week. Like, hey, what happened here? A lot of times. They'd be the first ones to identify a bug before. We even knew it existed. Right. So incredibly helpful and incredibly affordable. This is really free. Sure. Yeah. I think that was probably one of the best things that we did. And really was not done by design was just kind of done out of not having a budget to down. I do think it's interesting. When people say gosh, how do you? How do you? Get permission to talk to your users or how do you find people to talk to and not everyone has the luxury of having really popular consumer app. But I always challenge that assumption because everyone's a user of software at this point. Right. It doesn't matter. What that thing does? I mean, everyone can open a website open an app, right? And so, you know, if it is a simple as walking out on the street or going on to the coffee shop or just starting and conversation, right? I think the hardest thing to do is just to take that first step in terms of user testing. And kind of setting aside, the the presumptions that you have in your mind about the how user testing has to be this official structured scary thing. You know, it doesn't have to be that at all. 'cause sometimes I guess those initial casual conversations can then help you structure, more formal ones later. Right. Exactly, it makes sense. So what about that ownership part? The one thing that I've seen places struggle. With is that why innovation team talking to our customers? And why are they asking these things I'm sales I own the client relationship, or I'm marketing, and I own anything that gets broadcast from here. Like why we have value or or benefits? I mean, how you in the past with maybe start with Rebecca how have you in the past like broach that that conversation? Yeah. Yeah. I think it's one that happened frequently. Of course, I'm sure happens at large organizations all over the place. I think the one thing that we. Tried and did sometimes successfully sometimes not so much, but is trying to bring people along with you and get them to buy into what you're doing and make them believers don't just show up in a meeting from. Yeah. That's exactly right. We're we're doing this together. The other thing I will say is just my general feelings on innovation is that they are owned by everyone everyone in an organization is responsible for being innovative, new ideas. And it means something different for everyone. And you know, I wish that organizations would kind of get rid of the innovation title and really think more in terms of like, what are the outcomes? And I think if they did that they could be outcomes lab. Sure. Some some teams are going to be responsible for rapidly spinning out product. Some teams are going to be responsible for testing some people are going to be responsible for scaling. And so I think if we could assign some guardrails around what are the outcomes or the deliverables, and it makes it easier to partner internally rather than to say, you're the innovation team. And it's your responsibility to do this and everyone out here. Just keep doing what you're doing. I think that's a recipe for a lot of internal conflicts. And you've touched on some different sort of hacks almost feels like what are some of the things that? Because again, you kept talking about how the no budget. Let's see somebody who's in a startup. I'm listening to this. Like, what are some things that you found worked really well, or maybe surprised you when you were like, well, I don't have any money. So I'll try this. And you're like, holy crap. Like this. What are some of those things that you found in in your careers that works? I mean, honestly that bootstrapping user testing really you talk about the best ROI. I mean, I would save for sure that's been the most. Successful in terms of not underestimating the value of you know, just gathering a group of people around the table, buying them coffee and notes and showing them paper prototype, and also then emboldening them to give you ideas for a Donut. Right. I mean, because while you know, you may know that certain idea a, you know, won't make money or you know, you can't afford it. It always makes you think of other ideas. And so for sure like Rebecca said earlier, you know, where where cartwheel in and as an experience really truly was a result of us. Just listening to the users. They told us where to take that product. Because what we launched with his, you know, I think nearly a one eighty from you know, where it landed a few years later, and it really was just listening to the users. And so. Whether we were, you know, large fortune thirty retailer or a startup. It didn't cost us any money to listen to the users. Right. So. Right coffee known at money. I mean, I would say the same a lot of it. I mean we existed to be there for the the consumer. And I believe that even in my work today. Like, I want the users of whatever product to tell me what that is. And it's so easy. So easy to ask for opinions and his. I don't know. I think that's that's probably the best hack. There's some other specifics that are really specific to that specific credit, but I won't get into. What about it because it's a very different than focus groups in the traditional sort of, you know, asking people devote almost right, right, which I think some organizations feel a little bit more comfortable with feels a they've got a bit more control in a focus group. Right. And was at different for for you. I mean did anybody come in and be like, well, we should focus group. This thing. We did vocal skills. But I, but truly had never found the output of those more valuable, and maybe even as valuable as the informal things. And you know, one of the other things that is completely free is, you know, we created as any experience does, you know, a contact us in box, and I managed that inbox as as the product manager. And I know for sure when we got big probably wasn't long term the right decision. But it was so valuable to for me to just understand have that kind of purview from the guest in an immediate farm to know right away. You know, if this is just one person saying this thing, and it's an outlier I know that right away. But if it's five people in one day, saying something, then I know it's really important because that is actually, you know, a strong indicator that there's a problem and so being able to represent that. That also with our developers. And so they kind of always have that similar purview was really critical to success as well. And again doesn't cost any money. You know, it's just about having. You're having your finger on the pulse. Folks, are describing how this worry it's like the ship tilted in near chairs kind of slid together. Right. It wasn't very deliberate. Right. Whereas nowadays, people are standing up these innovation labs are these teams? And they're like go innovate. But what I've seen people have the struggle with the most is how to build that connection to the business side from the innovation team. Whereas once this innovation team, you know, the business side is like, okay, that's the people with beanbags and stuff like that and words over there. I'm actually keeping the lights on and things. But the issue is getting that connection between those news groups, what are some of the challenges you seen in solutions to solve that problem. Well, actually. In my experience on store. The future was exactly that organized. It was the kind of opposite of how a cartwheel was lake created versus, you know, a team specifically labelled innovation and all those things that go with it any one of the interesting challenges to to that team at the time where the people back at headquarters if you will who said, wait a minute. Isn't it my job to help create the sort of the future, aren't we all doing that? And you know, you can't argue against that. And so I think that's you know, to Rebecca's earlier point about the challenge when you label something an innovation team. You are in by nature kind of insulting the rest of your org to say that that's not their job neutral team. Awesome to right. Right. Exactly. But if you know, I think in to your question of how how can you ensure that they're connected back. The business. I think it is focusing them on outcomes. Right. So if instead of the innovation team, they are the, you know, how are we going to surpass ten billion in revenue, and, you know, five years, you know, throw out that crazy goal, and it's that team's job to go after that crazy goal, right? Right. And at the same time, you know, you need to give them enough runway, and you need to give them the freedom to really drive and do their jobs, but at the same time, you need to hold them accountable. Right. Because at the end of the day, they are running part of running your business, and they are a part of making sure that your businesses successful long term, and I have seen you know, where innovation teams can really go off the rails. When I think there's when there's not that checks and balances there the. Brings up something. This is funny. So if you if you do have that innovation team, that's like we're the innovation team. We're looking shiny and awesome. All this stuff. And then you have the business side, that's like get outcomes and things like that where I see the because especially because people no matter what they still follow some frameworks and stuff and lean seems to be one of the more popular ones and Lena's talks about failing fast and all that stuff. So so, but the businesses like why are we throwing money and stuff, and you just keep failing over? Even though it seems so odd like I did a talk just last year with a bunch of very high level executives. And they were asking me about what how do we experiment? How do we experiment? And I'm like, this is this is literally been around since the fourteen hundreds is not the scientific method. He's not revolution. Right. But I think where people struggle is is the idea of rewarding failure, right? Like, how do you? How have you seen it work in the past where you can make mistakes and the businesses like out as expected, you know, or get around that? I mean, how have you found ways to do that? Or is it just banging your head against the wall until somebody until somebody tells us not. I think in it's kind of a piggy back to the previous question. But I think to build an innovation team you really should have stakeholders from cross functional teams. Right. So it's not just the innovation team are made up of engineers and product people have used people from the outside. Crazy ideas, I wear funky close. Now, it's like, you really should have someone from you know, operations you need a product manager you need someone from anarchists or retail merchandising marketing put them all on that innovation team. And then now you have representatives of all the stakeholders in your partners within the organizational moving pieces in the business. Right. Exactly. Right. And then from there it no longer becomes I'm businessperson. Hey, giving you know a portion of my budget to innovation team over here. But I'm businessperson. A as a part of the innovation team. This is my budget. I'm accountable for the outcomes, and if we fail we'll we're not gonna spend all of our budget here. So it's okay. And let's just move on. But I think that that failure thing is interesting because it certainly was a part of what we did. But we all were committed to if you fail you learn, and then you move on and you at a rate, and you don't feel again in the same way. Right. It's really important to be held accountable. Ambra was saying to those outcomes, but then. Also as a person like in steward of of that brand or that product. It's my responsibility to mar from this and make a better decision time or different decision. That's really good advice. Yeah. I think people struggle with that. Because it is this you know, there's half of this where it's like I won't push against the boundaries. But I don't want to get fired. Right. Yeah. I mean, and that's where I think you have to have buy in from the top down. Right. And not even just, you know, I don't even think it works. If only the top is about in, right? You really need to have buying across the organization, and that doesn't mean that every single person has to be your cheerleader. But you do need specific representation in every significant, you know, whether it's pyramid or organization that kid that knows the objectives of that team that can speak to why it's important for the company, and that can defend the work in the budget to other people as questions come up because I think Rebecca may have touched on this. But you know, as you know, innovation of it often threatens the roles of what other people are doing. Right. So if it is successful within that means that something in. The business is changing and therefore certain roles in the business will need to change with that. And if that's the case, then oh my gosh. What's going to happen image out follow? Right. And then suddenly you have people that are angry you have an angry mob. If you will. So if you don't have leaders across the organization that our bodies in in order to be proactive to make sure that that angry mob doesn't build and fester and grow, you know, that's where I think having an isolated innovation team can break down so one last question though. So yes, I need those executive stakeholders clearing the way. But what can I do as the innovation team to market ourselves? Internally. Should I should I do a road show? Should I do presentations like what's the cadence and things that you've seen work really well in terms of exposing the work that's happening in one of those places, I think fraud shells. We did a lot amber was the primary presenter in many many of those because I had the. Pretty pictures. I think you know, me I prefer to work out a more one to one basis, and so for me was you know, to scheduling some time to talk with someone and we also have this this goal that every single meeting. We had work would come out of it. We aren't just meeting to meeting talk like we were meeting to have an outcome of that. So I really tried to those guardrails around who I would meet with and in those discussions, I would show them the value of this is how we're going to do things. I can't do this without you. How are you going to be a part of this? And do you even want to be a part of this? Because the way we worked, and then the way how gentlemanly and this not for everyone. There's going to be pupil in a large organization that just aren't comfortable. And that's okay. It's about finding those people who are okay with a little immaturity. I think to that point of you know, the way you're working isn't for everyone. I I think we learned that probably the hard way, right? Because it's it's so easy. Just to take for granted that oh my gosh. What we're doing is. So great and everyone loves it. And everyone wants to do it. Like, we're doing it. Definitely not the case. And I think had we learned that earlier on, you know, some challenges that came up down the road probably could have been voided. So you know to your point of how how to might an innovation team. Stay connected to the business. I also think it's really important to not not just go out and do shows. But also just go out and listen to people from across the business, right and ask them, what are your challenges? What are your ideas? You know, what are your goals? And how might what were doing help you? You know? That's great. So we're wrap up here. But I wanted to find out if people listening to here are interested in some product help what's the best way to find amber Evine? This is the the woman he'll create car wheel.
