TNR Best of: TNR56: It Is Funny Because It Is

"Welcome to the nightly rant. I'm Mike and I'm toria. This is the show where we talk about the awful things that have happened in our day, the awesome things that have happened in our day and all the things in between. Thanks for listening in. We've truly hope you enjoy. He everyone. So for today's episode we have a special throwback because something happened and we were on able to record an episode and we want you to have an episode five days a week. So we hope you enjoy this special throwback episode that we have chosen for you. People are tally. What about them? There's just we talk about Sony stupid people in the world. I don't even know. I don't even know what to tell you about that. There's a stupid people in his own. I feel like the Guinea pigs agree. Then you plus to bendy capable go. Then people go electing 's idiots, rain, you know, they hide behind their lies. They, they act like they're gods gift to the world. They, they pretend you're in one situation. It's, oh my God. I am so outraged that judge has put a hold on the Vic, shin of the homeless people. And then a few days later I am so happened to have been a part of the team that negotiated the this settlement from both sides. Either you're pissed about the fact that the whole of fiction process got stopped or you were looking to negotiate one or the other? It isn't both. Now you're talking about yellow. I'm gonna tell you. I'm talking about her name is council member, Chris Murray from Anaheim, and this lady a raging hypocrite. Well, she is and it's like, okay, so when when she started raving ranting about the eviction process being stopped, we called her out on the fact that you know where you're gonna put these people where they're gonna go ending. She say, well, they were offered services in refused the services because they were offered to them and they refused it. And we said, really how many people was that? And she said, well, hippo, unfortunately, the hippo violations won't allow us to speak about it and it's like, really the hip won't allow you speak about numbers, but then let's convenient for you to defend your own viewpoint. You can say, oh, there was nine hundred and fifty people taken off the streets and for years, right? Because as soon as as soon as as soon as it's not supported you, it's would self serving. So that's what she's doing. If she's using. Information to serve her own needs one, it's a good thing. You're there to point it out because I don't feel like there's a lot of people in the world who just wouldn't get it would see through the ball shit. Well, and you know, I always use my reasonableness meter. That's Josh and. He seems to agree with my stance on that. Like one of the comments I made today to her was leadership requires transparency. That's why you've failed. And that's what I truly feel. If you wanna be leader transparent, you know, why do you think that? I say that it went, I'm elected to the board of supervisors. I'm gonna have a monthly night that say it's the fourth Thursday of the month where. The citizens can come in spend time with me and talk to me about what their needs I want they want, and I can be open and honest with them about what we can and can't do. I haven't off topic question before we get to far away from. Have you told Josh that easier, reasonable this meter 'cause you should? I probably have. I don't know. And. But. I can't remember what I was saying. You were talking about your monthly meeting all the and just being transparent because that's what a leader does you you. Think about it. If you're transparent. And your new revealing everything that's going on as best you can. I understand if something's got to be kept confidential, I get that. But when you're transparent about your motives, like I said to her, you can't buy that safe neighborhoods plan or whatever, then you you came up with back in September, but there was never a plan attacks to it and I asked questions, what is it? You're gonna do what happens if they don't move out of the riverbed then what? Where they to go from the riverbed? You didn't have an answer for that. It wasn't until the judge came along and said, oh, no, you can't victim unless you find a place for them to stay at until you do that. I'm a let them stay right there for as long as they want. If she spearheaded the Anaheim state of emergency, this Sweden, and I didn't like her then. So the city declared a state of emergency and that accomplishes absolutely nothing. Until a judge steps in it. And it's like, yo, this is an k. you need to fix this. Now in he, he gave them a time limit. He said, if you think this is going to go on forever and you get to figure out what to do not happening right known, he gave them a deadline. And I mean, he agrees that it's not safe for people to live down there. I agree that it's not safe from people live down there, but my argument has been will be is and will continue to be they let this happen. I remember we used to have this this friends from church that lived like over near. Kind of near the twenty two free way. Okay. So as you neared the fifty seven freeway off to the right right there, there was like five tents near always there. Then over time the tents move more towards the Anaheim stadium area and became like hundreds of tents and they never say a word about it. They could at any time, those people were trespassing. I would like to know what prompted them to start carrying. Now, the fact that bunch of people got pissed off and finally said something. Citizens finding to the job general start carrying now. That's the part that I wonder what the trigger was like. Did some event happened that triggered people to all of a sudden be all pissed off about these people living in the riverbed. It's it's. I don't know. They just needed the citizens finding step up in have enough, and you know, come on. It's exactly as I predicted. I said, nothing will really happen until around February or March, and then they'll do something because they wanna get reelected or they wanna get another person. Lactated, it's dislike who spearheaded all this Todd, Spitzer regard who is running for district attorney, he wants to look tough on crime. Come on. People don't be that stupid to believe that he wanted to do this because if he'd wanted to do this, he wanted done in a long time ago. He's charming out. That means he's been there for eight years. He was there for the intact. He helped build the the goals that included solving homelessness that they just took out of the goal because they're not even close. Things are worse than they were so come on people. And you know, unfortunately, the other fool recoup is he's no better, but in my opinion, probably better than what what we would get. So you're saying it's going to be a choice between the lesser of two dumb asses against going to be like the presidential election all over again. Exactly. Exactly. Bunch lou. Bunch solutions. It's it's like. Then you know, like she's comes back with there was a comment. I'll have to try and find it in a minute, but there was like a comment about all the help that was given to the homeless people, and you know how much of that how much of them stayed off the streets. No answer. Oh, the nine hundred something people that she said city of Anaheim. Yes, exactly. And it's, it's like. The straw man arguments that get brought up by these people is just so over the top. I think what I'm most alarmed by is the fact that she's actually on Facebook responding to you. Yes, I find that very alarming. The guy said Chris Murray. Let's be serious here. The board of supervisors in the city of Anaheim, both new this area was protected by a court order. They both knew something needed to be done. The court was waiting for decision to be made well, the board of supervisors decided to evict the HAMAs from the riverbed and did not have proper facilities to send them to. The plaintiffs went to court and the judge agreed that this was wrong. He instructed the board of supervisors to come up with a plan and would involve that would involve shelter for those people. It wasn't until that time as Josh iceman has stated that a decision was made. You can't call it a decision because. They were forced to do what they finally did. Why wasn't this? What was done before? Starting the evictions, widened the county dig into its one nine hundred million dollars at its holding to fix this problem. How come they are so apt. They can't make a simple decision without a judge forcing them to do. So that's reality here. Then she comes back and she says, Josh tells her that. Do you think that maybe it's possible that some of these people I was saying you missed and did not offer help are some of the same people you now soon we're coming from elsewhere and both sides come from compromising is forced action. You on February seventeenth were expressing frustration that the addictions are being ordered to be stopped. Now you call that same action coming together. That's what I find funny because it is. And she says, you and I will have to respectfully disagree. I was there all day in court. That is not what happened. And I said, well, let's clarify few. Are you saying you didn't express frustration onto seventeen at the emissions were stopped? Are you saying the judge was not unhappy with the county? Are you saying this was the plan all along to provide hotel vouchers will if you answer yes, to number three, you're going to need to provide the proof and if you answer, no, you've proven our point inept leadership. Your own included is why this is such a mess. Each of you should be recalled for your inability to make basic decisions regarding human lives. You yourself set forth a quote plan and quote several months ago, but the plan had no details at all. None. You should be ashamed of yourself. And then she comes back with the plan. The city adopted in September operation home save helped nearly two hundred and fifty five people find shelter and services, and the joint law enforcement task force lead to the arrest of several hundred more for criminal felonies, mostly crimes against the homeless, the city of Anaheim and sitting at of helped more than nine hundred fifty since two thousand fourteen find shelter and out of the streets. Please share how many people you have helped. I didn't say what you listed in those points and I'm not going to argue with you. I was there. I heard firsthand with the judge said, and I walked with him for five hours the next day with plaintiffs attorneys and county council, you can attack me and anyone else you want. It won't change the facts. So hold on. Hold on operation home safe, which is Anaheim. City helped get two hundred fifty. Five people shelter since September according to her numbers, right? But only nine and then several hundred others were arrested, but nine hundred and fifty in four years. So you take nine fifty and use of check out to fifty five and you have six ninety five in four years. They have helped six hundred ninety five people. There are five thousand fucking homeless people in this county and they've helped less than ten percent and she wants to crow about that on Facebook. Yeah, really? Yeah, that's moron. What an idiot, like really, maybe you shouldn't be on social media because you just fucking contradict yourself left right inside ways. That's the truth. I agree with you. I almost feel like moving to Anaheim just to run against you. And you don't walk, we've decided, I've decided that you shouldn't even bother to run. You should just stop. You think you're such a great homeless advocate. Go be one. And here's another thing we've decided for a little while now until elections over we're going to have bonus content on a Saturday, and we're gonna affectionately name it supervisor Saturday, because the supervisors racist going to be the target of that bonus content. And for those of you really interested in how I really feel about the issues. Well, tune in on supervisor? Saturday. Gonna be all you because I have a lot to say, just like tonight. And it's a similar topic. So have you enjoyed this episode even teeny tiny, tiny, teeny bit. You will love the other episode. What do you say about all this woman. I think these people are runes. And that they really have no common says or brain when they think about this issue, I'm sure some of them have a brain on other issues, but they certainly don't on this one. It's nuts. Yeah. It's just nuts. I, I don't. I don't get it. I guess the part owned get is how she thinks that she's done something. I verified with a new source that she actually was at the river. The judge though I knew that I figured she was probably lying to you. Everything else she said was bullshit. So why not? That too. I would have thought it was funny if I found information that's she was there. It's like, no, I knew she was there is I mean, it's in the city of Anaheim. Of course she has to have her big face out there to show the world that she's fighting for their community. What's interesting is the news article did not say there was anybody for valley there. Will why would there be? It's not a fountain valley issue anymore. Occas they emptied out there. Do you think it's don't wanna piece it, but. Whatever, but I don't know. I'm thinking that you know now her claim is that people are. What's the word? I'm trying to say they're sneaking in there and they're trying to claim the vouchers. Absolutely ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. I mean, if that's the case, unless just more inept leadership because they should have realized that, hey, we probably shouldn't announced this until we do something to identify who the people are that are there. So that only those people get the assistance that we're spending money on. Let's be real. Now the people coming into the riverbed just to get the services and I'm making a whole lot of finger quotes right now in Kate because all of you can't see them are probably the people that they already chased out against the judge's orders. Yeah, more than likely. So I don't know. I think that. I think that they don't care. It's taxpayers money. So why do they care what happens with it? Because they wanna get reelected. Well, I don't know what she cares. She doesn't want to get reelected, but the rest of them do. I don't know what her deal is. She's Aloom. I had heard that she was going to run for the fourth district supervisor seat. Isn't that out that her half of one yet, but it's it's, I looked and she's not read hazard yet while yes, getting kind of late though. So Chevrolet twenty-second? Yes. The last day to register. Yeah, let's Thursday. Well. If you don't have anything else left to say, I'm tired after ranting. Tonight was all about your rent. It's all good. You guys should go look at the Chris Murray Anaheim city council Facebook page, and you'll find this discussion there, and it's quite interesting. Yeah, I could earlier because now it's showing up in my newsfeed on Facebook. Oh, yeah, because you commented, if you're my friend on Facebook, a weather. It's not like I know you or anything. Yeah. Well. Anyway, time to wrap it up again, this looks like yoga, niece's nails trimmed. He just bit me. Because I tried to. Silly. Happy Monday, everyone. Good night, Stella. Bye. Bye.

Good Friday Message - Dealing With Discouragement: He Gave His Life for Us

"The following message from pastor greg. Laurie is made possible by harvest. Partners helping people everywhere. No god to find out how to know god personally go to know. God dot org k. N. o. w. no god dot org. Hey would you do me a favor. Share this message was someone who needs to hear it. We know jesus gave his life so that we could have life. But why did he do that today. Pastor greg laurie points to scripture hebrews chapter twelve for the joy that was set before him he endured the cross despising. Shame the joy. What was the joy that was set before it was everyone of you. He went to the cross thinking of you knowing that this was the only way that we could be forgiven of our sense. The sad reality is most people are into a certain mental radio station w. i. fm it stands for what's in it for me. Every thought is measured against that question. What's in it for me today on a new beginning in good friday message pastor greg. Laurie points out. Jesus attitude was just the opposite. He willingly gave his life not for a return on investment. He laid down his life just for us while we were yet sinners. christ died for us. I'm what you to grab your bible and hope you have a bible or open the bible app on your phone or tablet and go over to hebrews chapter twelve and the title of my message is dealing with discouragment justin. We call this good friday. But it doesn't seem all that good does it. Imagine what it was like for them. I mean remember. The apostles had not read matthew mark luke and john. They know how this story ended. They were living real time and in their minds. They thought jesus the messiah had come to overthrow the roman government and establish the kingdom of god. Unhurt that's pump sunday was about member they're singing hosanna which means saved down like yes. The moment has come do it lord but he was not on his way to overthrow room he was on his way to die on the cross and then when it actually happened even though he spoke of it constantly he would say a sunday man is going to be betrayed and then he's going to be crucified in a rise again three days later. That's pretty clear but yet when it happened they couldn't believe it and their world as they knew it ended over night. They couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel but there is light at the end of the tunnel. There was for them. Because christ rose amo- celebrate that sunday and there's light at the end of art tunnel this whole quarantine is going to come to an end. We're going to get out again. We don't know what the new normal is going to look like. But i know what we need to be doing in the meantime and that thing. We should be doing this right here. In hebrews twelve it says four and by the way whenever you read the word therefore in the bible find out what it's there for so the author of hebrews who many believed to be. Paul is drawing what has just been said. So what is for hebrews twelve. Obviously hebrews eleven. What's hebrews eleven. We call it the heroes hall of fame. That's all these great men and women of god that persevered through hardship hardship a lot worse than we're going through right now as bad as it is for some and so in light of that or therefore since we're surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses so the author of hebrews they're saying looking at the example of these great men and women of god we read about in hebrews eleven persevered and light of that back in this great cloud of witnesses. Let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily stairs us and let us run with endurance race. It is set before us. And you might want to underline this verse looking unto jesus the author and finisher of your faith. This bursa speaking to those who are disappointed and discouraged later on the author of hebrews right in hebrews twelve eleven and i'm reading from the phillips translation so take a breast grip on life. Breaks your trembling limbs. Don't wonder away from the path but ford steadily onward on the right path to limping foot. Recovers strength does not collapse. I love that. Don't wander away from the fate. Have you wandered away from the fate. Was there a time in your life when you were closer to god than you are right. Now let's say if you feel far from god guessing moved here was in god. He's ready to receive you back again. As a prodigal son or daughter that describes you. And i hope you'll make that recommitment to him or even first time commitment. But i'll tell you right now. A lot of people are coming to the lord and are coming back to the lord and we're thankful for that but why are people coming back to the lord answer. It's scary out there. Depression and anxiety are up. Dramatically due to the corona virus is cited a stat that calls to the national hotline from people suffering from emotional distress are up eight hundred and ninety one percent. Alcohol consumption is up fifty five percent. What people doing their drinking as a way to escape. So these disciples were very discouraged on this first good friday their master their lord their friend had been brutally murdered in cold blood before their very eyes and they were thinking. How does this fit into any plan. See their hope had been defeated and their dreams had been destroyed but then when they saw the big picture that this was all part of god's plan then they were able to go on and literally change the world. So let me pick up. Where last left off hebrews twelve looking did jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross despising the shame and now a sat down on the right candidates thrown of god it continues on for consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners less. Ub wearied and discouraged in your soul that consider him translated. Compare yourself with him so contrast what he went through with what you're going through. I mean he went through so much. First of all he was abandoned by his own disciples and he was betrayed by another. Judas iscariot betrayed jesus for thirty pieces of silver. You know it's an amazing thing that jesus continued. Offer his forgiveness to judas. Don't forget he went into the upper room and washed all of the disciples feet including judas iscariot yet. Jesus being god knew exactly with judas would do if i knew judas was going to betray me. I would not have watched his feet. I would have broken his feet right. And then amazingly as judas led that group of people the temple guards some roman soldiers to arrest christ in the garden of gacem. Any we re. Jesus saying the him friend. Why have you come. It was one last opportunity for judas to believe. But you know it. It really hurts when a friend betrays you. Doesn't it zachariah. Thirteen six as one. Chill sandy. kim. What are these wounds in your hands. And he will answer. These are the wounds. I received in the of my friends. His own friends betrayed him effectively. Or at least abandoned him. Judas betrayed him but the worst was yet to come prior to the actual crucifixion. Jesus was scourged. This has been described by expert. Says the halfway crucifixion. It was so brutal. Many people did not survive it. Because this this device the romans used as this whip wasn't just a basic whip it had multiple strands embedded with metal and glass. So when it tore into the person's back it would rip initially at the flash and then it would rip in deeper exposing vital organs ultimately and the blood loss was so great that many would not survive. Jesus was whipped thirty nine times and there was a reason for that by the way. And i'll bring it up in a few moments. But then he had to carry his cross after losing all of that blood and avenues back open to be crucified on and they nailed the spikes into his hands in his feet and they elevated it and ultimately he cried. My god my god. Why have you taken me okay. But why did he keep going on. We're talking about why we should keep going on. We should keep going on because we should be looking to. Jesus see whatever you're facing right now remember. Jesus is with you. Jesus can help you cope with your anxiety and your fears and your depression. The bible says you should cast all of your care upon him for he cares for you. That's what keeps us going. But what kept jesus going. The answer is right here again. In hebrews twelve for the joy that was set before him he endured the cross despising the shame the joy what was the joy that was set before him. Ready for the answer. Was everyone of you. As paul said he loved me and gave himself for me. He went to the cross thinking of you. Knowing that this was the only way that we could be forgiven of our sends. Jesus told a story of his shepherd one hundred sheep and one wanna straight so. He left the ninety nine and sought out that stray sheep until he founded in came back having wrapped around his neck and he was rejoicing. And then jesus said there's more. Join heaven over one sinner repents over ninety nine people who need no repentance the joy and that's the joy. The joy was knowing what the cross would accomplish pastor greg. Laurie will had the second half of his message. In just a moment it's so encouraging we hear that listeners are growing like hearing these studies. Dear pastor greg. I found christ in the mid nineteen seventies. Very thankful for my christian lie. I i heard you preach learned about evangelism. Extra first harvest crusade anaheim stadium where my friends bill was saying over my life. Jesus has protected me time and time again including healing me from cancer. I lived on the east coast now for over twenty five years and recently reconnected with you through your podcast where i found each podcast is a real bible studies for me and i'm learning so much and it's causing me to study god's word more intently at nearly seventy nine years old enthused and excited about my faith like i was those many years ago. Thank you for helping me. Rekindle my fire of love for jesus in my old years. Life is wonderful. What a great story of how pastor greeks teachings from god's word have made an impact on this man's life. In if you'd like to listen to pastor greeks podcasts. You can do that through. Google apple or spotify or just go to harvest dot org that's harvest dot. Org today pastor. Greg is presenting a message called dealing with discouragement. Helping us prepare our hearts for easter. Let's continue now. Look bursary consider him who endured such hostility from senators against himself less. Ju become weary and discouraged in your souls. That's what kept him going. This is what will keep you going looking to. Jesus so we're in a race right in this race. We want to run to win. I know the popular trend with kids athletics. Today there's no winner. there's no loser. We're all winners ridiculous. There's winners and losers in every soccer match every baseball game and in every race we should run to win. And our motivation is doing it for the lord you know on the ancient greek games that started in greece. Greek games would start in greece. Obviously but the olympics. They're a they would run for a prize and it would be the emperor holding out the laurel leave. So maybe you're coming around the bend in your on the last lap and you'd see the emperor holding out the laurel leaves. That would give you a little extra motivation. I know when. I used to run track and field as a kid in high school. If there was a pretty girl watching me that always motivated me. So i have a better motive for you. Then a pretty girl do it for jesus because one day he's going to reward you for your faithfulness. That's why we do what we do. It isn't for applause. It them for notoriety or fame. Listen ghana's not called us to be famous. He's called to be faithful and we just want to hear him. Seeing that final day well done good and faithful servant. So it's looking to jesus keeping your eyes on him and that also means that we shed excess baggage look verse one side every weight and the sin that so easily besets you a wait is anything that slows you down in the race of life. So it's good to periodically look at things that you're involved in and ask yourself the question. Is this a wing or is it a way. Does it speed me up in the rays of by does it. Slow me doubt. This relationship is just make me want to get closer to god or does it pulled me away from god and you know listen one may be a way to one. Isn't the way to another necessarily sin is sin lay aside the the weight and the senate so easily besets you so one person's weakness. You guys might not necessarily be another person's week. That's sort of like metabolisms are steve. Wilburn who burns every calorie. He eats never puts on weight. I remember when st was a young man. i knew him when he was in his twenties. You know he ate like a horse. And i'd say steve one day you're going to get older and your metabolism will change and you will put on a lot of weight. Well he's older and a metabolism hasn't changed. That really bothers me. Because i want to eat to in and out burgers in one city. Like steve does. And i can't. But you know we all have those weights in those sins in our lives so you might want to look at your life and say is there anything i need to lay aside. So i'm not being slowed down in the rays of light but look at verse three considered. Jesus why should i consider. Jesus i should consider jesus because he never stopped considering me. I said look to jesus. Because he's always looking out for me. And i should live for jesus because he died for me. And where is jesus verse to. Who for the joy that was sepe for me. Endured the cross despising the shame and now as sat down on the right hand of god then interesting. He seated at the right hand of the father. But yet i know of one time in the bible where jesus stood up. Stephen was put to death by stony because he boldly proclaimed the gospel and he stood before this in hebron and suddenly he had a vision of heaven and he says i see jesus standing at the right hand of the father and the bible says his face was shining like an angel. That's interesting to me. He's normally sitting. But in the case stephen he was standing effectively welcoming him into heaven. Let me ask you this. Are you going to be welcomed into heaven. i mean. I can't imagine going through life without the assurance that i'll go to heaven when i die. Do you have that assurance right now. I sure hope so. That is why. Jesus died on the cross so you could be forgiven. No that you will go to heaven when you talk okay. There's another thing you should be doing. In addition to considering jesus you should be remembering. Jesus what do i mean by that. When jesus was in the upper room with his disciples for what we call the last supper he was not his normal jovial self. And you guys. I think jesus was a joyful person and you know usually when we see him per trader religious. He he's never smiling rarely and he kinda wimpy too. You know but we know from scripture to be a pretty strong guy. He carried his cross endured the scourging. Even a punches pilots had behold the man so. I think jesus was a man's man without a question. I think he was also a joyful man and i think when he got together with his disciples they had fund they laugh together. They enjoy but they concede feed that there was something going on with. Jesus they didn't know it was the last supper but he did and then he took the bread and then he'd pickup and he said do this and remembrance of me. Why should i do this in remembrance him because he wore a moment has never forgotten about me. Let me say something now about communion it's really for believers only you know we're told to take these elements and remembrance of kim in the upper room. Jesus took the bread he said. This is my body which is broken for you taking eat of this. And then he took the cop and he said drink this cup and do this in remembrance of me. The apostle paul elaborates on this and tells us when we received the elements of communion that we should not do so in in a reverent manner king james is unworthy manner what it means is i understand that they represent these elements brennan the cup the broken body and this shed blood of christ. Now we don't believe in trends stanchi ear which means that the bread literally becomes the flesh of jesus or the jews becomes the blood of jesus but we believe that they do symbolize his broken body and has shed blood. so you don't wanna do this in a cavalier way. I think sometimes people receive communion and they'll say well you know a little religious ritual would do me some good a little religion would do me some good. Listen you don't need a little religion. You need a lot of jesus and this thing that we do which is a very precious thing for us as believers in for that believers those who put their date in christ and pawlak seat. Says if you receive the elements of communion without believing in the one they represent you can actually eat and drink judgment to yourself so. Let me pause for a moment and say this. Are you sure right. Now that jesus christ is living in your life. Are you certain right now that if you were to die you would go to heaven if the answer to those questions is no. I would like to do a prayer where you can ask.

One of your best by the way and I'm gonna flip all the way back to the back of the book the second paragraph of the chapter. You call acknowledgements. I find this fascinating. Here's what you write us. You say my collaborator marshall caroline. I have consulted a veritable library of graham books articles periodicals youtube videos and thousands of documents on the internet including the one thousand four page. File the f. b. i. Kept on billy. Research reached as far back as the civil war. Yeah oh my goodness. This book contains dimensions of billy's life and background which have never been explored anywhere before that part. I've found absolutely fascinating. The fact that you have do. I mean you knew billy it says so in the title billy graham the man i knew but you have doug so deeply into giving us such a rich biography on the man that you call the single greatest evangelist. Who ever lived. That's right well. I want people to understand his place in history. He's truly a historical figure Along the lines of our great presidents and people that impacted our country and even people that impacted our world and so we wanted to go back to billy's routes as father his a grandfather his great grandfather so we we tell the story with a wide overview but then we go in deeply into his life. And what i wanted to do. Dave was show. The human side of billy in sometimes a person can fade into history and people never really had any interaction with them and they almost become one dimensional like president lincoln on the five dollar bill but he was a real flesh and blood. Guy abraham lincoln. And so was billy graham and it was my privilege to spend a lot of time with him a lot of time just hanging out with them a lot of time asking him questions. A lot of time. Listening to each. I in i got to know him there. I say as a friend and he was just such a great man to observe. You know the private billy was even more impressive than the public. Billy and the pump geli was very impressive. I mean i can't think of a greater preacher. I've ever seen but privately. He was very humble very gracious and always was interested in whoever he was speaking to the famous person like president and they might be somebody. You've never heard of before. He took an interest in people in general and in had a wonderful way about cam. And every time i was with them. I almost had to pinch myself. I mean it was with them a lot so it wasn't like every time i was with him. I had butterflies in my stomach or something like that. But i never stopped realizing. This is billy graham. I'm hanging out with your and talking to and it was great to access him In here things from him and share things with them and be of some small helped him in the final years of his ministry. As billy was ending his ministry. I was starting my crusade ministry and he asked me to assist him with illustrations in building bridges to younger audiences. So i love doing that. In fact i fell. More pleasure in prepping a message for billy graham then i found prepping went for myself And when billy actually use some of the material i gave him. It was just like one of the greatest moments of my life. I can imagine it was. Billy was the kind of man we all wish we knew personally. And you'll get to know him in this brand new biography. It really is an inspiring journey again. It's called billy graham. The man i knew in fact and graham lots. Billy's daughter commented about the book she wrote in this page turner of a book. I learned things about my father. That i never knew greg. Laurie has done a masterly job of setting my father's life in historical and cultural context. I pray that billy graham.

The Golden Key to Spiritual Growth: The Choice Is Yours

"Hey everybody you're listening to a new beginning. Which is podcasts. Made possible by harvest partners if this program has impacted you a love to hear from you. So just sending email to me at greg at harvest dot org again. It's greg out harvest dot org. You can learn more about becoming a harvest partner by going to harvest dot org. Success in the area of spiritual growth is no mystery today. On a new beginning to pastor greg. Laurie reveals the truth. People that do not succeed in the spiritual life end up that way because of choices over the course of their lifetime to not do the right thing. Listen it comes down to this. If you want to grow spiritually you will. If you don't want to grow spiritually you won't. It's really up to you. So much of life is a steady of cause and effect. We wonder why we get so many speeding tickets. Could it be that we drive too fast. We wonder why it's so hard to get up in the morning. Maybe it's linked to how easy it is to stay up late the night before today on a new beginning pastor greg. Laurie us study cause and effect as it relates to success in the christian life. Jesus paid the price for our salvation. But we'll see maturity and spiritual growth are up to us. You let me begin with the question. Why do some succeed while fail in the christian life and when we all know people who have walked with the lord for many years and got his use them powerfully and then we know other people who basically crash and burn. Here's the answer. The people that do not succeed in this virtual life end up that way because of choices they make not one choice necessarily but hundreds even thousands of choices over the course of their lifetime to not do the right thing by default ended up doing the wrong thing. Listen it comes down to this. If you want to grow spiritually you will. If you don't want to grow spiritually you won't. It's really up to you. In fact god gives us a choice and the book of deuteronomy a chapter thirty verse. Nineteen the lord says. I call heaven and earth this would. This is for you today. That i've said before you life and death blessing and cursing now choose live so the lord is saying it's up to you. You want a blessed life you want to curse life. That's your choice. But i give you the choice and i love how he tells us the right choice because choose life. You make the right choice. Do the right thing. God has given you everything you need to know in the bible about him and he's giving you all the spiritual power to grow spiritually. We're told her over. In first peter one three his divine power has given us everything we need for life. And okay. we're going to look at one of my favorite stories in the bible. It's a parable now. You know what a parable is a parable an earthly story. Were they heavenly. Just think of it as a story. We all love stories. We all love to watch movies. We love to read novels. We love to read fiction. We love a good story even better. If it's a true story. Jesus told lots of stories. In fact he told so many stories. The bible says the common people or the regular folk heard him gladly. He didn't speak over people's heads he didn't try to impress them with feel logical words. He broke everything down in an understandable way so they could get it and we're going to look at the parable of the sower which is a parable that reveals to us the golden key to spiritual growth. Not long ago. I was invited to the white house. And a group of pastors were invited into the oval office at the request of the president to pray for him and give him some advice now. Some people are critical at that. Why would you go and do that. Well excuse me anytime a president or a governor or an elected official would say. Would you come into my office and pray for me. It gives me some advice. I don't think i would say no to that. We biblical precedent. Of course we look at daniel advising the kings of babylon we see joseph advising the pharaoh and so forth so of course we said yes and the president was very receptive to what we had to say and and then when it came down to pray he was very happy to pray and ask for god's help in his life and then he gave to all of us and unexpected gifts. There was a stack of boxes on his desk. And we read given one and this fox has a key in it. This is a commemorative key on the bugs. It says the president of the united states and then inside is this golden key and the president said now. This key opens some lock somewhere here at the white house. I don't really know what but we understand. It's a commemorative key we. We're not expecting to go to the white house next week. And just start. Trying to put it in keyholes and see where we can go no. It's a commemorative key. It's a golden key. But i have a golden key for you today and this one is not gonna open up any locked at the white house. It can open up some locks if you will in your own life. The golden key to spiritual growth now before we read from mark chapter four. Let's get the backdrop. Jesus had had a long an emotional day. His mother and brother showed up to where he was speaking and they wanted to take him home because then their words the thought he had lost his mind and then after that he was accused by the scribes of bean inspired by satan not a good day a lot of drama so interesting as we come to mark chapter four we read the jesus has gone to the beach effectively. Now it's the sea of galilee. Which is actually a massive freshwater lake. So he went to the water. And i don't know about you. But but i love to be near water. I love to walk on the beach it to play. So you contemplate things. And you're surrounded by god's creation and it's just a great place to sort of unwind and reflect ten and i think jesus loved to spend time in the water. We see a lot of great teachings and activities right there near the sea of galilee so with that in mind we come to mark chapter four and we read these words once again by the way. I'm reading from two new living translation. Mark chapter four verse one again. Jesus began teaching by the lakeshore. A very large crowd soon gathered around him and he got into a boat. And he's on the boat or the people remain on the shore in. They taught them by telling many stories in the form of parables. Such as this one. Listen says jesus a farmer went out to plant some seed and he scattered it across the field. Some felony footpath and the birds came and ate it other seed fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. I'm sure the lord was probably gesturing as he was teaching in the sermon on the money says look the birds. Don't worry why are you worrying. Look the flowers. How beautiful they are. Maybe gestured and there was a farmer in the distance throwing seed out left and right so he talked about this seed that goes in a footpath and the birds come and eat it and other seed falls on shallow soil with underlying rock sprouted up quickly but it withered under the hot sun. He continues on other seed fell among thorns or weeds that grew up and choked out the tender plants and produce no fruit still other seeds fell on fertile soil and they sprouted grew and produced a crop that was thirty six one hundred times more than it had been planted. I'll listen to this then. He said he who has ears to hear. Let him listen kate. That's the parable of the sower. Say well that's nice. What does it mean. That's exactly what the disciples said. What does this mean. And now jesus explain sir interprets this story here in mark chapter four verse. Thirteen then jesus said to them. If you can understand the meaning of this parable how we understand all the other parables here. It is the farmer plant seed by taking god's word to others this seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message but satan comes at once you might underline that phrase satan comes at once and takes it away now the seed that fell in the rocky soil represents susie here the message and receive with joy but they don't have deep roots and they don't last long and they fall away as soon as the problems are persecuted for believing god's were of verse eighteen of mark chapter four but the seed that fell among the thorns of the weeds represents those who hear the word of god but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth and the desire for other things and no fruit is produced the final category and that seed that fell in the good soil represents those who hear and accept god's word produce a harvest of thirty sixty or even one hundred times as has been planted all right. So what does this mean to us today. answer. I have no idea. God bless you know seriously. I have a few thoughts about this. I'm a preacher. Of course. I do actually have a whole message about these things. These are four reactions to god's work and you fit into one of these four categories. And i want you to note that only one category was really legitimate. What we might call people who were actually converted that can biblical times the objective of the sort was to just take this heat and throw it up. Throw it on and look the wind. Pick it up. It's not like they planted crops ahead of time and carefully but the seed in and had modern farming equipment to work with no. It was pretty primitive. He just walked out had seed in his big bag reached in through. The wind will pick it up and the seed we go here there and everywhere and so the objective as you did the plowing later to see where the seed went. And that's our job. Our job is to go into all the world and preach. The gospel are so the c. You know interesting that the word broadcast actually comes from the root word of sowing seed and we hear such amazing stories from people who've come to the lord of watching at home or listening to our radio program or through one of our live events that we do that we call harvest crusades and so forth but we just throw the seat up to as many people as we can and time will tell who the real converts are. Mr greg laurie. We'll have the second half of message in just a moment. It's so encouraging we hear that listeners are growing like hearing these studies. Dear pastor greg. I found christ in the mid nineteen seventies very thankful for my christian light. I i heard you preach. I learned about evangelism mecca. I harvest crusade anaheim stadium where my friend bill was saying over my life. Jesus has protected me time and time again including killing me from cancer. I lived on the east coast now for over twenty five years and recently reconnected with you through your podcast where i found each podcast is a real bible. Study for me. And i'm learning so much and it's causing me to study god's word more intently at nearly seventy nine years old. I'm enthused and excited about my faith. Like i was those many years ago. Thank you for helping me. Rekindle my fire of love for jesus in my old years. Life is wonderful. What a great story of. How pastor greeks teachings from god's word have made an impact on this man's life in if you'd like to listen to pastor greg's podcasts you can do that through google apple or spotify or just go to harvest dot org. That's harvest dot org. Today we're considering the parable of the sower as pastor. Greg helps us check our own spiritual health. The only way to tell someone is really a christian is sue the test of time. I'll say that again. The only way to tell if someone is really a christian is to the test of time because sometimes people come on strong in the beginning and then they walk away never to return other times people have sort of a weak star but then they get stronger with the passing of time so we just have to wait to see who the real believers are. Sometimes a person will make a professional faith. They'll fall away but then they'll return. That's a prodigal here's how you know the difference between a prodigal and a person who's not really converted if a person is really converted and walk away and never comes back then we would just say they're like the seed sown on the roadside. That were that was picked up by the birds but a prodigal will always come home. You know as i said earlier sometimes you can have a week beginning but a strong finish take nicodemus. Remember him in. John chapter three. We read that he came to jesus by night. In fact that's mentioned multiple times. He came to jesus at night. Why is that important. Because nicodemus was a celebrity. He was a well-known pharisee. Sort of the teachers teacher. If you will so for a man of his stature to go to this rabbi binding jesus and ask questions well. There was a risk to that because he was the guy who was supposed to have all the answers but he didn't of course so we went to jesus at night. You remember the conversation. He he opened with some compliments. And jesus just cut to the chase and said a nicodemus. You must be born again so that really impacted that demons. But we don't read their in john three and that conversation of nicodemus believing but it appears that he did become a believer because later on in the story after jesus was crucified and they were laying as body in the tomb. We read that. A man named joseph of arimathea came to take the body and it was joined by nicodemo. Little detail is added who came to jesus by night. So here's my point. Sometimes people look like they're really strong and others. They're really weak example. Judas iscariot was an apostle in good standing while nicodemus was still groping his way in but in the end judas revealed himself to be a full blown hypocrite and not a believer at all they deem as he came over that finish line with flying colors. So you may have a week beginning but a strong finish. What matters is how you finish so if you started off following the lord and you've stumbled new fallen and he was saying it's too late for me notice it. It's all about how you finish. Because some of a great start and they never get up again. So if you've fallen messed up get up again. There's still time to walk with the lord and finish this spiritual race. Well okay. let's look at the different categories together category number one. I'm gonna call them highway. Here's highway. here's and its inverse. Fifteen of mark for to see that felon the footpath represent those who hear the message only have satan come at once and take it away. I want you to notice something here. Satan comes at once. Jesus says he comes at once. Know this when you share the gospel with someone. The double is going to aggressively oppose it. And when someone makes professional faith to follow christ. You need to be there to help them. Get grounded spiritually. You know when. I was a brand new believer. The christian said to me. Now greg. be careful. You're going to be tempted by the devil. I've never heard of such a thing tempted by the devil. I'm thinking there's some guy with pointed ears and redskin with pitch gay. Oh yeah no. You'll be tempted by the devil now. I never really thought about temptation before. Because i think as a young kid i started did what i wanted. Maybe some more opportunity than temptation okay. I'll be tempted by the devil. Then i said how. Will i know when i'm being tempted. They said you'll know so. I'm still in high school. I'm in a class and there was a very attractive girl in that class. So i'm a brand new believer in jesus christ and i've never talked to this girl before. Noticed her but i hadn't talked to her so i drink classes over this girl who never gave me the time of day. She didn't even acknowledge my existence up to that point walked up to me and says hi. What's your name. And i looked endure beautiful. Blue eyes and i momentarily forgot my name. I said a greg. Oh hey greg you're really cute. I'm like i mean actually. That never happened to me. I know him cute. But i didn't really have girls. Come up to me and say you're cute really cute thinking this girl saying i had this little button with a little image of jesus on a brand new christian. You're really cute. I'm thinking what is going on here. And she says how. Would you like to spend the weekend with me up at a cabin that our family aunts and i'm thinking this temptation for sure because you know why that kind of thing never happened to me before and i don't know where this attractive grow comes up with us enticing offer and it was of course enticing. Well i said no thank god and but i knew okay. I think that was my first official temptation. That's what happens when you're a follower of jesus. The devil is gonna come and attack so that's category one. So these are the people that that you know they. They hear the word of god but it doesn't really penetrate their hearts. Jesus says the birds come and eat it. You know you've been at mcdonald's or some other place and the birds are hanging out because that's free food man. That food hits the ground food. They swooped down and get it right. So that's what happened. These are people that hear the word of god but it doesn't really penetrate hardened heart category number two. I'm gonna call them rocky road. Here's rocky road. Here's verse sixteen. The see that one on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately notice the word immediately immediately they receive it with joy but since they don't have deep roots they don't last long follow away and as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing god's word so they start they take hold of it but then it doesn't take root in their life now. The stony ground jesus is speaking of is speaking of the terrain of israel. Remember years ago. I was on a tour of israel and i had my granddaughter stella. She's very little at that point. And afterwards i said stella what are you remember most about your trip to israel. I thought she would remember some biblical site. We went to she said rocks. What rocks there were rocks everywhere. And that's true. There's a lot of rocks and the soil. Soupy idea here is that the seat goes into the ground. And there's a shelf of rock underneath so it shoots up but because it can't get rude it withers in the blazing sun so this is a description of a person who hears the word of god in their respond. I mean they refund so quickly. You know you talk to some people conversations going for weeks sometimes months even years. You feel like you're making a little progress other people the first time you tell them they say. I want jesus on my life really. Yeah i want him in my life so you say let's pray and they pray and immediately. They're like mega convert right there like they're going. Buy a bible not just any bible. They get a giant cable the start carrying around and their church every day of the week and and they're quoting verses and when worship it's happening they're lifting their hands higher than anybody else. They're singing louder and they're even critical of others weren't growing as quickly as they're growing and you see the people. That is the most dramatic conversion. I've ever seen it was literally night and day so Maybe a month passes by. They're gone you don't see them at church anymore. They don't respond to your phone calls or your tax. What's going on. They just walked away. They fall away. This is the category. We're looking at here so we wonder what happened to these people will. Obviously they're having an emotional experience but it didn't take root see. This is actually not a true conversion though. It looks like one and sometimes people in this category rocky road. Here's we'll say something along the lines of. I tried the whole christianity thing and it didn't work for me as a christian. I went to church. I read the bible. I did all that stuff. But it didn't work for me when no actually you never work converted. I'm sorry to tell you that you had an emotional experience. Maybe you had some sense of who jesus was. But if it was a real conversion you would still be walking with the lord look. Christianity isn't like a product that works for some and doesn't work for others. Christianity simplified is their relationship with christ himself. it was g k chesterton. who said and i quote. Christianity has not been tried and found wanting it's been found in not try enco good club so the problem with this person is. Their heart is shallow soil pastor greg. Laurie is providing insight on the four types of soil. we read about in the parable of the sower. Or the parable of the soils. We've talked about highway hearers and rocky road hearers. There's more to come as this message. Continues here on a new beginning. Hopefully you heard all of the insight pastor greg presented in today's program. But if you missed any part you can fill in the gaps by listening online at harvest dot org just look for the message called the golden key to spiritual growth now to amplify what we've learned. Today we're making available. An important new book called the women of the bible speak. It's written by shannon bream anchor of fox news at night on the fox news channel. She is also the chief. Legal correspondent for the network at pastor greg. His wife kathy are speaking with shannon in one year chapters. You ronan hannah miriam. And he had said quote my most painful valleys have made me more empathetic a better able to share and other sufferings and better equipped to give them words of encouragement. So the question is. How can we allow suffering and pain to make us more sympathetic and not bitter. That is a really tough one. And i do think that we have a couple of paths that we can take and of course i think there are moments that we're all frustrated or cry out to god. Why is this happening. Why is this person suffering. Why am i suffering I think it's okay to ask questions. I think god knows. We are human beings. we are fallible. We have moments of weakness. But i think in asking those questions we get closer to him and we can find our answers in him. I talked to my first book about Just being very vulnerable and honest about living with chronic pain for years. I think people who have been there will no. We've all probably touched on something. In our lives. it has been a physical struggle and it just it levels you and it really makes you humble and i think it makes you look at other people. And what are the pains. They're living through right now. Emotional or physical financial. Whatever they're struggling with. We know everybody goes through things and i. It's true for me. The darkest worst moments where had nothing to do but literally couldn't even form of prayer. But god please help me not some big fancy deeply theological drawn out prayer but just the words knowing that the holy spirit would intercede for me that god christ was there interceding for me. I just think the things that humble of the most make us vulnerable and is able to care for other people and for the whatever suffering. They may have as well. I love the scripture that talks about that we comfort with the comfort that we've been comforted with and i know in my own life. The the hardest thing that i've ever been to greg's ever been through. Is the death of our son and although that devastated us at leveled us it was absolutely one of the most imaginable unimaginable. Things that could ever happen. What came out of that. As a result was i sought out other women who had been through what i'd been through who had walked that path and had survived it and it gave me hope just being in their presence. They didn't have to tell me a one two three solution. I just wanted to look at them and say they made it. They got through this. And i found the women of scripture. Were also my companions in that journey. I love how you've chosen Sarah and hagar and rachel and leah taymor in ruth. I was just fascinated by your selection of of the women that you put in your book. These are some of my favorites too. And i wondered you know how you came up with this list. Well there are stories that are well known even for people who are not people of faith but may have heard some of the stories like queen. Esther people know mary the mother of jesus. I mean there were ones that we thought there are base will include them. But i fought for other people to be included. That i thought would be important like taymor. Who really really takes them. Inappropriate wrong turns and is not the easiest sunday. School lesson to teach. I thought there's so much about her story. I wanted to include. Rahab who was a prostitute who was critical in helping israel achieve a victory And so i thought i. It's so important. I think to include people who are flawed because every single one of us every single one of the women in this book are flawed. But it wanted people to know that. Hey if you feel like you've made some bad decisions you've gotten off track. God can still work through all of that. And we see that through these women there in the lineage of christ they are people who step up to save israel. I mean these people are important and come from all different backgrounds so we wanted to pick women that we thought people were probably know what's show them another layer to their story But also some people that You may not know. I think the average person probably doesn't know about taymor or rahab but we thought let's include them so people will know that god uses every circumstance in every person who is willing to be used in his service you know. I think it's interesting. How many women made it into the messianic line of jesus christ who had questionable reputations and to me it's like that very genealogy of christ is a story of redemption. Is you think the fact that you know considering the fact that the best sheba meted in there and and others it's like it just says that god gives that can chances no matter what you've done in you know in god of second and third four chances and pretty much is high as you can count goodness yes well. This book is full of good news like that. It's an inspiring look at lives of more than a dozen women in scripture and the examples they set for us and fact shannon subtitle is the wisdom of sixteen women and their lessons for today. And we'd like to send you this. New book called the women of the bible. Speak by shannon bream of fox news.

Are You His Disciple?: The Constantly Growing Christian

"Today's episode of a new beginning is brought to you by harvest partners. Helping people everywhere. No god learn more at harvest dot org and while you're there browser library of free e books designed to help you grow in your faith. That's not enough to just come forward. We need to go forward as followers of jesus christ. That's really what the christian life is a lifetime of discovery. That's a lifetime of learning. It's a lifetime of information today. Pastor greg laurie launches a series on discipleship. Disciples are those who make a concerted effort to follow the lord and to learn. The tricks in life is one of constant. Grow a lesson stall and you fall brad. It's one thing to be on the team. It's another to begin the action. It's one thing to watch from the bench. It's another to get in the game spiritually. Speaking our salvation is a free gift from god. Jesus paid the price but discipleship has a cost. It's a higher level of devotion and a higher level of reward today on a new beginning pastor. greg. Laurie helps us chart a course for genuine discipleship and he begins by commenting on an evangelistic outreach. That adjust included still rejoicing over. Ten thousand people made a profession of faith at angel stadium. Notice i use the phrase profession of faith. They don't say ten thousand people were saved or ten thousand. People became christians. Because i don't know if they became christians. I hope they did. I prayed they did but only time will tell right because the bible says by their fruits you shall know them. The bible says faith without works is dead. So we're praying will see the fruits spiritually in their life. The results the works that follow a true conversion. Because it's not enough to just come forward. We need to go forward spiritually and then we continue to grow as followers of jesus. Christ that's really what the christian life is. It's a lifetime of discovery. It's a lifetime of growth. It's a lifetime of learning. It's a lifetime of transformation. A lot sunday. I was at our church harvest. Kuma lonnie and they all say aloha to you and we had a great time. they're just. It's just exploding so much excitement. In every week we're seeing people come to christ. It's an amazing thing. So i attended a number of board meetings. While i was there by board meetings. I mean on surfboards. And i'm a really bad surfer. By the way i never serpent california but when i'm over there a lot of people from our church get up very early in the morning and go out for what is called a dawn patrol right very early and so it's so cool because you're out with like fifteen people from our church and everyone's giving waves away and cheering each other on. God bless you. You know not fighting for ways or anything like that. So i'm trying to learn how to do stand up paddle. Do you know what i'm talking about. As opposed to lean down aboard and paddling with your arms. Standup you have this really big board in a paddle and you paddle in the waves and challenging. I have to admit because i'm not very stable. I fall a lot. And so when i caught a few waves and i even got a little watch. There's this little digital watch and it will tell you how many waves you caught. I've a friend named jim who always tells me how many waves he cut his look. Twenty seven waves. So i got my wave watch on and after i was done i looked at the screen said seriously question mark and then i pressed the button and it said such a loser. I couldn't believe that. So i disabled the mockery. No i disagree dr. I think i caught seven waves. And that's really being generous. But here's what i discovered you. Catch the wave your in the wave your riding the wave in and then when the momentum of the wave stops he's slow down and that's right always fall and so you gotta keep family going to really dig in once the waiver. Stop to turn around and go catch another wave and so i discovered stalling. You fall. He listened what is true. Stand up. paddle is also true of the christian life. Stalin you fall. The christian life is one of constant grow constant learning as i said constant transformation. But here's the problem. Some will make what i would call a profession of faith. They'll pray a prayer because maybe they wanna get well fire insurance. They don't want to go to hell when they died. So they wanna to cover that base. I mean they're willing to take jesus as there savior but not necessarily as lord. They're willing to take on crisis their friend but not necessarily as their god and they stay in sort of this baby like state you know. Babies are cute. I love babies. Don't you every now. And then i get the dedicate babies and you never know what a baby will do. That's the fun part. I've had them throw upon me before. Of course while. I'm praying for them and now as i have been doing this for a while. I'm meeting more people that are young adults and sometimes not even that young that will say you dedicated me when i was a baby and i'm looking up at him going. Wow so you know. Babies are cute when they're babies but babies have to be cared for. Initially you have to nurse a baby. Then the baby learns outta eat soft foods and then you cut the food up in the little bite sized pieces for them and one day. The bb picks up a spoon or fork and they start learning how to feed themselves and they get more food on them then in them and i feel sorry sometimes for servers and restaurants after a toddler's been in there. You look under the high chair. There's just mounds of food everywhere splattered up against the wall on the ceiling. You know that's a little baby learning how to eat. It's okay it's cute. That's a babies do. That's how babies role actually but it would be sad if someone was still be gaming that way. When they're in their twenties right you still have to feed them and he's still have to make airplane noises when you're coming in with a bite to keep their attention. What is true of babies can also be true of us as we grow spiritually. We all start out as babies. We all start out with a hunger for the word of the bible says in first peter two two as newborn babes desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow thereby by the way. There's no shame in that that very hunger for spiritual truth is an indicator of spiritual health because a healthy person is a hungry person. If you're not feeling well and he'd go to your doctor. One of the first things. I'll ask you is are you hungry. How's your appetite. Well i'm always hungry. So i'm no him in good health right now. I'm perpetually hungry. I don't know if i'm alone in this. But that's true spiritually to if you're hungry for god's word if you want to hear god's word that is a good thing it's something you should be desiring and if you're a young christian if your brand new in the faith. I'm so glad you're here because we're here to help. You grow up spiritually. Here's the objective. We want to take you from getting your in bite sized pieces. And that's offensively would've sermon. Is i sorta prepare it and cut it up and give it to you but we want to teach you how to read the word of god process. It's truth learn how to think and then live biblically. My granddaughter alley. She lost a couple of frontier. And so she has a really hard time eating and she loves nectarines. So she'll always say to my wife namaa that's what she calls kathy. Would you cut the nectarine up. So she can eat it. She doesn't ask me. Because when i could enetering up. It's a scary sight. I don't know why mystifies me kathy slices are so perfect a minor all strange shapes and it's crazy but she needs it cut up in bite size pieces. That's what we all need initially but then we need to grow up. You know when. I was the young person in school. I had many teachers. Say to me. greg. Laurie will you just grow up. Because i was always acting like a little kid and sadly i just heard this yesterday from my wife and a grandchild because what happened was we dinner and was a store that had just closed their doors and there was still some sales people in there. I shouldn't even admit this. I don't know why i'm saying that. The people in there my wife standing there looking in them by grandkids are looking at troy. I knocked on the window and then ran off and so everybody turned. There's my wife standing there. She says well you just grow up. Stop acting like a sixth grader. Then my granddaughter. Riley said papa europe pastor. You shouldn't be acting like a sixth grader. And and she was right. Of course it's time to grow up. We all need to grow up spirits league in our walk. With the lord is the term disciples synonymous with believer. Is every believer a disciple pastor. Greg answers that important question in just a moment. It's so encouraging where we hear. That listeners are growing like hearing these studies. Dear pastor greg. I found christ in the mid nineteen seventies a very thankful for my christian life. I i heard you preach. I learned about evangelism at your first harvest crusade and anaheim stadium where my friends bill was saying over my life. Jesus has protected me time and time again including killing me from cancer. I lived on the east coast now for over twenty five years and recently reconnected with you to your podcast where i found each podcast is a real bible. Study for me. And i'm learning so much and it's causing me to study god's word more intently at nearly seventy nine years old. I'm enthused and excited about my faith. Like i was those many years ago. Thank you for helping rekindle my fire of love for jesus in my old years. Life is wonderful. What a great story of. How pastor greeks teachings from god's word have made an impact on this man's life in if you'd like to listen to pastor greg's podcasts you can do that through google apple or spotify or just go to harvest dot org that's harvest dot. Org faster great continues now with his kickoff message from the new series discipleship. The road less taken disciple said is all about growing up. It's about going to the next level if you will. It's about really living the christian life to its fullest living the christian life as it was meant to be live. It's called being a disciple. Then in turn going out and making disciples of others that brings us to our first passage matthew twenty eight. These are the words of jesus now. These are familiar. Words words that many of us have even committed to memory. But i want you to consider the fact that these were the last words of christ before he left her. This is after the crucifixion. He's risen again from the dead and he's going to ascend the heaven now. So this is the final charge from the lord last words matter. If someone's on their deathbed and they have won last statement. We always want to know what it was. There's an emphasis on last words. And so these are the last words of christ to us and there red charge their command there a commission. That's why we call this the great commission. Matthew twenty eight verse. Sixteen and eleven disciples left for galilee going to the mountain where jesus told them to go when they saw him. They worshiped him but some of them doubted. Jesus said to disciple. I've been given all authority in heaven. And on earth therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit teach these new disciples to obey all the commands. I have given you be sure of this. I'm with you always even to the end of the age. They're it is. We're all commended to go and make disciples but listen to this. It takes one to make one. So we we go make disciples right. Let me ask you this question. Are you doing that. Are you fulfilling the great commission. Are you making disciples of others. Say well i'm not really sure what that means. Good that's what we're going to talk about because before you can make a disciple you have to be a disciple sort of like when you fly and you're seated there and they're going through the regina what to do in case you lose altitude and you need to use your oxygen masts and so they'll say if the oxygen acid come down put it if you're traveling with a child put it on yourself first and then on the child. That seems counterintuitive comment. We're losing altitude. I should take the mosque and put it on the child first and then meet the needs of the job. No i know. Put it on yourself. I because i can't help the child if i'm blacking out right. The same is true and discipleship. I can help somebody else. Be a disciple of jesus. If i am not first a disciple myself again it takes one to make one so listen to this while it is true then not every person who makes a profession of faith is a christian it is equally chewed that not. Every christian is a disciple. Let me put it another way. Every disciple is a christian but not every christian is necessarily a disciple. Let me say that again. Every disciple is a christian but not every christian is necessarily a disciple so you should not say well. This doesn't apply to me. I'm happy with fire insurance. And i'll leave it at that. No if you're a true follower of jesus. You should want to be a disciple. But i'm asking you this question. How many of your disciples of. Jesus so let me ask you this question. How many of you would consider yourself a disciple of jesus christ bridge your hand. You didn't raise your hand because you know it has trick questions. Don't you think i am. But i didn't want to see where he's going and then i'll decide if i'm a disciple and you know that's okay that just shows you're actually very smart. That's all that shows but really every one of us should be able to say i'm a disciple may not perfect disciple not someone who has totally down. But i'm a growing disciple of jesus and everyone should be a disciple of jesus because really what is disciple said. It's living the christian life as it was meant to be lived. Discipleship is living the christian life as jesus taught it as the early church understood it. it's real christianity. But i think some are reluctant to want to live that way because it seems well radical. That's why i called this series discipleship the road less taken because some don't want hardship. They don't wanna challenge. They don't want difficulty so they take the path of least resistance instead of discipleship row. And listen to this. Discipleship road is challenging. But it's fulfilling it's hard but it's more than worth it. Because as i said it's living the christian life as it was meant to be lived in. So here's what it comes down to. Every one of us should be a disciple and then as a disciple we should either be being disciple by someone more mature than us. We should be disciple ing someone less mature than us. Everyone of us should either be being disciple or disciple ing. Someone else are really what it comes down to. Is you take a new. Believe or under your wing. You helping them to grow spiritually as you teach for them and model for them. What a kristen looks like or you should be being disciple. Someone more mature than yourself. I'll tell you what right after accepted christ in my high school campus. I could have fallen through the cracks so easily and some guy. I'd never met before walked up to me. I've told you about him before. His name was mark and mark. Effectively disciples me. He said greg. I'm gonna take you to church. And he did and then he took me home and i met his parents and we bible studies around the dinner table and any cutting help me get to that rough spot and then i started hungering four up myself and pretty soon. I found myself doing it for others. Can you be that for someone else if you know someone that accepted christ. I hope you'll seek them out. And say i want you to come to church with me and i want you to go out to lunch with us after church and i wanna help you grow spiritually. That's what people need. And not everyone is disciple who claims to be a christian. You know it's interesting. When christ walked our planet. He spent a lot of time with those twelve. Handpick disciples matthew five. We read one day. As the crowds were gathering jesus went up to a mountainside with his disciples and he sat down teach them. This is what he taught them. and after. That comes a sermon on the mount. So we envisioned jesus on the sermon on the mount speaking the multitudes blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness blessed another me know that message was given to his disciples who were gathered around them is c. so the point is that he took time with these guys he spent time with these guys and the basic definition of the word disciple means a learner. You're a learner. You're someone that's listening. And you're processing in these disciples listen and followed him around and they're sort of like three phases. We can go through. And i was reading a book on discipleship written by dwight pentecost. it's out of print now about at the title of it is designed for discipleship so i borrowed this from him. I wanted to give him credit. He had three words he used to describe different phases of where people are at spiritually. The three words were curious convinced. and committed. and you've fit into one of these categories today category number one curious. Jesus said a lot of curious. People gather around him especially when he performed a miracle. By the way as most popular america was he multiplied the fish and loaves. That's awesome restoring deaf to those that can hear fantastic upper amazing free lunch now. We're talking so when jesus up the crabs would show up. They would listen to him but it wouldn't really impact them for the most part and they just go on back home as they did before so we would call somebody those people as curious and that may be you. You're here today. You're curious you go to church today but some of you've already mentally checked out you know. You're updating social media. You're looking around for pokey men still even though that's long over with. You're still looking for him or you're distracted. You're curious but not that curious and you're already checking your watch and planning your exit plan. But then there's the next level which is interesting. It's convinced it's convinced in other words. You believe these things are true. You would sit here today and say greg. I actually agree with everything you're saying it's all true now. Maybe it doesn't impact you personally but you give intellectual assent to. It is an important step. So that's being convinced. Here's an interesting passage. Read that the first miracle. Jesus did turning water into wine and keen of galilee in john to eleven. It says he did that. Miracle and his disciples believed in him on wait what his disciples believed that thought they were already believers all. They were in the sense. See they'd come from curious to convinced there were so convinced they were starting to follow him but at that point that miracle they went from convinced to commit it have you. Have you gone from convinced to committee this. What does it mean what it means. Is it impacts you and the way that you live and you say now i want to be a disciple that i wanna make disciples of others pastor greg laurie with good counsel today on the importance of discipleship. It's the first message in a new series called discipleship the road less taken. And there's more to come here on a new beginning but if you'd like to preserve the study heard today you can download an mp three by going to harvest dot org or stream it while you're online. The title of today study is. Are you his disciple. And then it's a real privilege to make available a new book by fox news anchor and chief. Legal correspondent shannon bream. You may have seen her on fox news at night in the evenings. She has written a refreshing new book. Called the women of the bible. Speak and pastor. Greg's wife kathy is here with shannon shannon. You dedicate this book to your grandmothers. And i i just want to know what was the role that your grandmother's played in your life in your journey of faith and maybe say a word of encouragement as to how women out there today realize that they they may have a very quiet role of parenting grand parenting but the impact that it can make on an individual. Yeah so grand. Live to be one hundred and two and she was faithful. I mean she was in church every sunday. She had her pew. She wanted to stay. Close up front so she would hear the music and the pastor. She always wear a hat and every sunday. It was family tradition that we would be with her and then we would have sunday dinner afterwards. And just those sundays together or such an amazing fond memory for me that she was faithful and she trusted the lord and she was Feisty about it. I mean she was somebody who her faith was her priority. Now i'm still blessed to have my grandmother. My other grandmother margaret weatherly. Who is still with us. She is ninety five years old and she is. Somebody who has in the last few years really struggled healthwise with other issues but man. I can't have a conversation with her where she is not talking about. The lord's giving me another day. What can i do with this day. He knows what the timing is. And i'm just gonna trust him. He's with me. He's my companion even when i'm alone even when i'm struggling. And so for her. She continues to be that witness and i haven't shown her the book yet because i want to show her in person the dedication and i can't wait for her to see it and just to be able to thank her for living that consistent life of faith especially in the in these days where she's really faced a lot of struggles and instead of turning or being bitter msci somebody who said. Hey listen the lord woke me up. Gave me another day. What am i going to do with it. He's going to walk with me. I love that. And i'm holding in my hands this book. It is so beautiful. i. I'm a grandmother and i'm just thinking if someday someone would write a book and include me in an introduction a dedication like that i'd be so blessed it is beautiful i love it. It's just very feminine flowers on there but the contents of this book hopefully will inspire another generation of women to go forward with strength and boldness courage even the most difficult times. The encouragement is here. these women of the bible really do speak to our lives. And i'm so grateful that she wrote this book the wisdom of sixteen women and their lessons for today and that is what's so amazing is the bible is truly alive. The words are important and they are living and they speak life into us even today. Copy laurie speaking with shannon bream author of the new book. The women of the bible speak. It's such a wonderful tool of inspiration for women and really for all of us and we'd like to send this to you too. Thank you for your investment in the important work of bringing people to the lord and bringing people closer to the lord. It's we recently heard. This from a listener listened to your podcast for nearly three years. You helped me accept jesus. I'm currently receiving cancer treatment and your new believers bible is what keeps me going. I read your devotions every morning. Your investment helps us reach people like this. It's an investment and touching and changing people's lives and with your donation right.

Kobe links and motorsport is a legendary figure in our sport of supercross motocross over the years and he was the voice of the sport for a long long time. And it's our second ever. Podcast is the first one i did was. You're in twenty twenty one. I one i did was twelve years ago. Happy and pleased to bring back super mouth. Larry huffman. what's up man. How are you steve. Good to hear from me buddy. Thanks for coming on. I really appreciate it good to hear. You're doing well doing better all of that. Yeah true by the way you did my voicemail for me. Twelve years ago on my cell phone. It is still on there. I still get people all the time telling me. It's the voice. Best voice. Mail message ever so. I think delusional steve. But it's okay. Hey did you do something lately. I i know you came out to the world vets a few years ago you did you do something with birth miniaturize yeah. I did a little announcing that. I enjoy that every year. Scott scott is beautiful. Why very nice. And they seem to think my voice helps a little bit. So i do that. With a john and greg barbara kobe. Nice and do you like that. Still do you still enjoy it. I mean god you've done so many things over the years with announcing it everything else or is it the same old same old or do you get excited for it. Well it's hard because there's no scores and that's one of the problems. In my estimation. My humble is estimated and supercross. Because it's very interesting. I had a guy from the la times. A friend of mine told me recently that it blew him away they could never understand. Steve how i would say hannah or tribes or somebody like that out in front around away with the race. And i would go back in the pack and i would look at somebody running in the tenth or eleventh position. But i would say okay. Let's look at look at number one. Eleven back and watch him. He's going to go crazy and people could. They're just down high. Could do that while my wife. My ex wife was a score and she would count me on the on the little me arm and say look and point to this. Yeah so we have a whole new race in the la times guy. Tom hamilton pixel. That's how you did it. I could never hear it out. I don't think they're doing that now. And i think that's a problem. Yeah i know sometimes the last transfer spot like on tv and stuff that you focus on that which is always important. But you're right. It's it's a lot of the same stuff over and over where you're trying to entertain people right so he actually informed. Inform them right right. Do you follow sport much now. Are you watching it much. You read about much. I was blacklisted. Politically from it. So i just kind of turned it off. And i am not involved in it at all. Well what happened. Why did you get blacklisted. One of that happened. Well i ate. I was mickey thompson's announcer. And i was my good ones announcer and making was killed and i was. I received a letter from his sister who took over the company and t g And she said you've got a girl working for you gene sleeper. And if you don't see we're after her and if you don't fire her you'll never announce supercross again. I said i'm not gonna fire. And i never now supercross again. Wow i didn't know that part. Or maybe i forgot about that part. Yes one of my questions. I want to get into the thomson. Goodwin thing and your relationships with both of them and everything else but so after eighty eight you were pretty much done as they live announcer for the sport. Yes yeah wow and why did she want fire him just personal vendetta ish the stuff. He couldn't get i asked her. What are you going after the chain sleep performed should. We can't get good when we think she knows a lot about it. We're going to go after her. And when taken off the caribbean right and so they they sit on fire and she was. She was broke People were after money. And i. And i said i'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna fire. She's a good person and that was it thrives on thing. Yeah gee you know. I don't know how many people have told you this. I maybe ten years ago. There was a five. Dvd's that came out of the world's greatest supercross racers and you were hosting it but it was shot in the early nineties and somehow got re released. Have you heard about. This was a while ago now but it was great. Yeah it's you a chair in early. Nineties introducing each race. And then you cut to it. And i don't know who made it i don't know who produced it or anything. It's sometimes you're the live stuff. Sometimes it's other guys but your host of everything and and Dude it's fantastic. I love to watch those old racist so do under call so when you when you what are you doing. Now what do you do. I know i heard your voice on commercials in la when i lived in la. I live in vegas now. But when i heard your voice on on some furniture commercials and some car stuff is that kind of stuff you still doing truly slow. The pandemic slowed everything down. So nothing's really happening. I did do a of i Narrated a a new version of rock and roll racing and in december which is kind of interesting it was none ellie studios which is a legendary studio la And they hired me. We negotiated my attorney. Got involved with rock and roll racing was apparently very big. Hit back in ninety three when it came out. Okay and then they brought the new one out and they call me and they said we like it or narrated re-negotiated. We've got a good deal. I went and i did it and It's it's out now and I hope it's doing well They paid me. They said we've got the studios are reserved for two two days. Yeah it's not gonna take these two days two hours and forty five minutes you're like you're the guy got this. Yeah what is it. Rock and roll racing. What like tell me what it is. We'll racing awesome road race. Okay came out and ninety three We unveiled at the national electronic. Show in vegas and i was there in my tuxedo. Got a little platform with a bunch of other things going. on mohammed. ali was on another little life. Form a little ways away Publicizing his his video game. Oh and mohammed ali was doing. It just came out last month oh wow okay. Yeah no so they got you back in doing that are you. Born and raised in in la are you are you from their cousin. California kerala born and raised. Okay so how did you get into live announcing did you raise the where your fan of to get into it. I was never raised. I am. I started drag race announcing in nineteen sixty eight in lions drag strip and then i super speedway and sixty nine costa mesa and this is the interesting part that your people might be interested in in nineteen seventy I heard about some crazy guy and my good when he was going to do. A supercross race yeah. It wasn't called that stadium motocross. Yup and i called him. And i said i'd like to apply for the job as announcer. Well i've got the ama says you gotta do three races outdoors first and then if we approve that you can do one in in the him. So he's gonna do sacramento. Would call carla cal. Expo saddleback in orange county in carlsbad. And i call him. I wanna play. Well you're going to have to audition. And i said well okay. Okay so he had somebody else to sacramento and then he had me do sacramento. I told them beforehand. I says make checkout to me. Because i'm going to be doing it. And fortunately he liked it. And so i got to start doing supercross in june of seventy two. If they call the first one ever yeah the first one ever tribes wins it. Mardi try one the next year to. Yeah oh wow. I didn't know you went that far back okay. I didn't get it. so what about. The sports is hooked you. What about it did you did you love about it. Well you've got you know. Twenty thirty forty thousand people in your kind of manipulating them To the of my knowledge steve. I believe the largest supercross ever. I'd heard this was the coliseum late seventies. i believe we do seventy-six thousand to one event and when you would hear it's like you're hyping up for hitler rally ready to stand up and i told him stand up on the main event and they all did. It was insane. What a rush for you. Right was a big rush. Yeah wow were you. Obviously you have the pipes even uneven now in two thousand twenty one you can hear your voice. You got a great voice. You're just born with it where you born with the ability to be an announcer. You look back at some of those early ones and be like i was terrible. Did you study somebody. Did you admire somebody and listened to tapes. Like how did you get good at it. I just go to the racist and react to what the crowd's reaction was and if they reacted i'd say okay that's going to work and do that the next time. Yeah i was announcing it. Costa mesa speedway in the early seventies. That's it was the largest weekly motor sports event north american nine thousand people every friday. I mean it was insane. And i one night i did. It and i was in my tuxedo. Jumping down the table. And i finished up. This old man came up to me. I swear to god it's true to sold man came up and he said i was in. I was in munich. In thirty six members on was coming up. And you're exactly like hitler walkaway. She's sorry yeah you're like. Oh i don't really know how to take that. I guess it means. I could come in and audience right are you. Did you have any. Do you have any like. I don't know how much you follow other sports or stuff and certainly live announcing is different from tv announcing. But you have some guys that you admire from afar or that you met that you pick the brain of or anybody. I picked it brain i. I liked several different announce bruce planners who recently died was a great answer. There i don. I don't follow the current crop of it. You know but yeah. There's some of my meyer. But i when when i first started out i got a call from sharon clayton at cycle new died. And she said we'd like to with you. We've got this race coming up in long beach. Along ron carey and i met with them. And they said we need you to teach our announcers how to announce that i said. Why would i do that i think. Will we help sport waited. They can listen to me. But i'm gonna tell them what to do. Yeah and blacklisted me from ever announcing the long beach grand prix. Oh jeez yeah yeah. It's it's weird. Did you do much tv. Did you do any tv. Y'all gonna own show motorcycle world. Larry helping lost a lot of money on channel. Four in los angeles. Back back in the early eighty. Let's see late eighties. Yeah yeah. I've done tv. I was just wondering the difference as far as calling array on tv versus calling it live. Obviously you were the live announcer for some of these and some of these videos. I've watched on that. dvd set. I told you about or on youtube or whatever you're doing the call. But i believe it's just somehow you're the live call was piped in as the tv call right like i don't really know how to do it. I don't think they had to announce back then so we usually did it after the race for the they bring me in and do my part but they tape the the live call because they wanted that on tape for for the broadcast. Oh okay okay. Oh so that's how it works. So so yeah you're double dip. You're getting you're getting two jobs. Yeah i it's such a confusing myself. And jason gann from racer x. We were just talking about this the other day the history of supercross tv production is so confusing. And when you look at the the lucille's through early days and then in the it looked like goodwin and thompson could do different deals with different tv. Production people stanfield david. Stanfield is doing them. Great garba is doing some of them. You're a great announcers. Yeah it's all over the map like as far as what who's televising which race it's it's crazy. You can't figure it out. i'm confused. Explain what you mean. Well like you watch so one thousand nine hundred eighty five eighty six eighty six season. You watch a race We just we. Just let me point to a better example. Nine hundred eighty nine. We just watched nineteen eighty-nine nine atlanta thursday. Larry myers who came after you. Yeah very good announcer larry. Mars is calling the action after the race. Right he's done it. He's he's calling it as from production. Well then there's another copy floating around you too and this is david stanfield calling it for something called southern super sports racing or something like the never quite know who's putting on the tv broadcasts for the different supercars over the years so okay. Yeah yeah yeah for you so when you did the supercar series. And how many years did you do it. Seven nineteen seventy two and nineteen eighty. So did you do every event or would you. Would you be contracted to do everyone or would you have to work out. Your deals with with bill west and goodwin and thompson and etc etc. Would you have to work. Deals out with each promoter. Yes that's how we had to do it. Yeah okay so did you. Were there some that you didn't get to do because you just didn't want to do it or couldn't come to terms or i didn't do i only did the daytona race in one year. I did most of everything else. Yeah god to back then larry. The travel wasn't easy huh. That's not like nowadays. No difficulties very tough. Yeah Did you so bunched up in canada too. Yeah well that's why. I was going to get to like well. Let's back up a little bit. You start getting involved in the sport and the in seventy two like you said you start calling these things. I guess when this kid named hannah comes on. He's just amazing for announcer. like yourself. like. I notice enlisting back to your calls over the years. You're very much like watch hannah. Watch 'cause baba baba crasher baba bad start and so this guy must have just been great for you catnip for you as alive announcer. Let me tell you something about that. You mentioned I visited my good would imprison several times and one time i was visiting. And how many says. He pointed to a prisoner across the visitors room. And he says you see that guy. Yeah he says he's a real big fan of supercross and a real big fan of yours if you'd say something to make his day. Yeah so i got up. I walked by this guy and i. I a prisoner resource tapped him on the shoulder. And i said here comes banaa crazy. Oh god that's awesome good but certainly he would have been the early guy for you to keep an eye on Yeah yeah was there a guy that look we'll get into the gym holly stuff in the candidate stuff. Because i'm from winnipeg blue. Was there a guy though that you like really got along with well out in a week to week and really helped you make your job. Easy helps you out. Mike bell very good to work with trump mardi tribes. Though he's very young and and unpolished was really easy and good to work with most of the writers. He respected me. I hopefully hopefully hannah. You can never tell because he was going to bring to the to the interview. And i'm sure bob through some Some funny stuff out you over the years. Oh yeah yeah you know. It's funny. I i've done a bunch of with bob over the years. Probably three or four of them and so before we hit record you know he knows that. Rollerball a hero of mine when i was a kid right and and so he would he would be like. Hey how's ross. Have you talked to lee or whatever. And he's like the coolest guy ever and then and then i hit record and he just and he just flips larry as you know he just flips and he starts talking trash on on howard inner rollerball or whatever and i'm like oh there is downtown. Yeah yeah and so on the flip side of that. Were there guys that you can cover the sport now week to week and go to all these races and certainly i have some great relationships with writers and i'm able to call them up and talk to them whenever i need to blah blah blah and there are some guys that just. They don't like me for things. I've written or sad or whatever they just don't like the media in general or whatever other guys were there guys like that for you. Let me think Along most yeah. I think you have to understand. These guys started seventeen By the time of twenty two. They're the burned up. they're gone. Yeah so if you treat them right. And i want to run a running with a with steve wise and mardi stripes and tonita to stuff that we go jogging together and mike bell and and i got to know him pretty well. They trusted me. And i never really screw them. So right. they've kind of open up to me. And you gotta understand and you know this. There unsophisticated kids. They can ride a motorcycle fast. And who statement dance. Yeah and they just you know they're not polished and that's not a put-down your jumped out of highschool into making you know several hundred thousand dollars a year. Yeah but they're done by twenty two. It's funny like you. You know you come from a different era than i do. But what you what you just said is totally like you just captured what. It is still to this day in two thousand twenty one. Yep the money's money's greater but you've captured it right yeah. I was doing an appearance at a dealership in san diego county like four five years ago. Now they brought in the top riders. I think it was a ktm team. And i i think. I bought a cycle news. Cycle is still printing and i showed it to one of the top guys and he. He's yeah that was a race. I did and it was like. He couldn't wait to get out of there to get the hell back home maiden want to do the you wanna be you know publicized and i'm telling you pal you gotta sell motorcycles you. Weren't you gotta sell bikes makes sense. And he didn't wanna do that. Yeah yeah it's weird right. And and you know i would think hannah or magoo or rj. They got it right. they pretty much did. Yeah hey the rodeo cup race did you call that one. Where was it coliseum. End of one thousand nine hundred eighty five. Yeah that's the europeans came over. Jim hollywood one is world supercross title them. Yeah the guys. Were taking a dive to start in the front row. What a night night. I remember that. I'm sure you were probably just like i don't know what's going on here. I have no idea but like dogar went behind the coliseum and like faked an injury or something with just ridiculous. Yeah do you have a race that stands out for you. I mean it's impossible to ask us but you have a couple of races that stand out for you as far as nineteen eighty-six anaheim unilever johnson. Yeah and i talked to. After larry he said i could hear every were you. Were saying in my helmet. That helped me so much. Gonna san where. Ricky was behind it online and i asked ricky about that several years ago. Too big promotion of malika smith. I said let's talk about. Let's talk about hannele eighty. He looked at me he. Can't we talk about race. Is one really right now. I think i'm gonna wanna talk about rj about that race right and then he came back. Yeah that's true rate us race of all time to me. Yeah yeah. I was pretty pretty amazing and that was the old anaheim stadium. That's sixty thousand people right. Yeah it was totally sold out. I think we have sixty five thousand. Wow with the press and everything. It was blatantly sold out it was insane. Yeah yeah i bet so. Anaheim eighty-six stands out anything else. Hold the first race of tribuana. He was he was absolutely stunned to win. That thing. i mean you look at the pictures of his face. Blank. didn't really. He won that race so easy because he you know he. He did not train or at least to be delighted. Know right when he just he has such an incredible style that he he you know the best writers. The world steve mcqueen was there. We had hollywood celebrities in the stand. Okay sixty and i raise anyone. Do you remember thinking like hey like there's a. There's a future here with this. This is a one off Did you did you think this could be. You know what it is today. I mean no no. No so i mean goodwin was was a crazy guy. He was at a lot of ways but he he was really a good promoter. Put butts in the seats and he did it. He saw the stories. I've heard of course For coat Dr driving onto the floor and a cadillac. Or whatever rolls royce or something putting putting putting in mud pits like the guy just seems over the top. He was yeah he was. I would say you can use this look. I was announcing the us cpi also did all at carlsbad of and one of the early ones goodwin showed up and he wanted. He wanted to plug the coliseum race but a few weeks and promoter said do not interviewed one so goodman came from any teams drinking pretty having an ad his girlfriend who was a porn star. Okay buddy he's taught money. Let's go to the motel afterwards. we'll have a threesome with trixie here. I said mike. I love to but i never learned how to play golf. You wonder boost true story. So yeah like obviously with with mickey thompson shooting like you believe he's innocent right. I i let me be careful. What i say i. I worked for both of them. I knew them very well. Yup i think good one is was capable of doing that. I'm not sure if he did it or not. Right right right crazy story man. Supercross pivot right there. You know what i mean. I know i know and so did you like did you like mickey like mickey a lot. We got along well. I've been to his house in hollywood celebrities and all that i felt very important. I like mickey a lot. When he called me was telling me he was. He was partnering with good. What i you're gonna be screwed. I said let me tell you. You can't do with this man it's in his. Dna no truly wants me to retire. I'm gonna do. I'm not telling you you're going to get screwed out. Sure good would try to screw him. Good ones in prison and make dead and this is all over. The rights to california supercross is basically right. Well i think it was all of the rights to to good had good atlanta more. Okay yeah yeah. He did more than just so california. Okay all right so yeah so. It was kind of just to the right to who wants who gets to run the series. Basically the right news you know separate was almost separate. Yup by the way still Yeah wow yeah just a crazy crazy. Time and in mike takes off and you know years later gets arrested and you know. Obviously some of the things that he did seem suspicious but then again like you said if mickey sister is in the da's office and there was certainly a lot of black bad blood. Between mickey and mike good at-at oh boy. Yeah so did you. Did you find yourself caught that. Because you're a you're working for both of whom you you like both of them. Did you find yourself caught in the middle where he won guys venting about the other guy to you about that. And you're just like yeah. You know that's interesting question because the word was out that the good one was telling everybody i'm gonna kill thompson. I'm going to end this life. I never heard that from a good one. He never said a word. I was talking to good one a lot because we you know what is rangers and he lived near me and we would talk. But he'd never once. And i'm gonna get i'm gonna i'm gonna put thompson down really okay. Yeah so man It's such a an interesting story of supercross history. And then when you go into the later years of supercross and kind of all these different promoters getting getting it and in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. There was the sports series and then there was an ama series. Like you're just like our sport is so fractured for so long. Yeah it was. Yeah and now. At least you have. David coons the exports people are running the nationals. And we have feld motorsports running super cost so at least we have two people only to write running the so on. It's really really interesting. Where were you the when you heard mickey died. Mickey was murdered. Phone call early in the morning because it was killed a little after six and a friend of mine called and say hey. There's something happening at mickey thompson's house so i turned on the news. The first board was coming over. So i jumped in the car and drove down. I'm stadium it was. It was weird scheme. Because i walked into the press booth. I just invited myself. Because i'd be. I figured i'd be the logical to take questions because i've done that before and The first thing. I noticed when i went up to the podium to the microphone. One of making Attorneys was there and he said larry us. Yeah i just want you to know that. You did a hell of a job announcing saturday night and i thought what a strange thing to see yes so i opened up the thing and we start taking questions and and you know that but that was basically it so but i was confused. You said you jumped into combat anaheim stadium. Was there a press conference scheduled. Is that what. They're wha- figured there would be. Say the anaheim stadium Got it okay. I didn't quite yeah. That's funny making johnson data office down. I'm stadium before he was killed. He called in. And i went into his office and he had a A model on a desk of the building and he said He said. I'm trying to remember exactly what he said. He's he's seen his thing. He says i'm gonna i'm gonna take over the world of some kind of event and he hongo go to do this. This model of the building and says you know you better stick with supervisor off road racing because you can make a lot more money. Doing that just happened to remember that out of the line.

Money to announce god lawnmower racing or anything swamp swamp boats or anything. No i i. I can't remember it. But you know i'll put on the the miniskirt and the white boots. It'd be a prostitute. I might as well dress like one. No i you know. I did a lot of different stuff over the years. Yeah yeah. I have a quick real funny story about robert. Redford if you hear absolutely you. Can you can always edit this out it was super speedway costa mesa when we were the highlight. I mean you really packing the place. Every friday night so one friday night. This is like seventy one. The place is packed. And robert redford and his buddy were staying in newport beach and they came to the racist okay and they come in and and it sold out and they go up to harry actually wife maryland and they say hey listen to. They didn't identify themselves. We need a place to set and she says all right if you promise to be good. Don't cause any problem. You sit in the press thing so they went and i sat in the press area which is about ten feet from me. Yup and i while the race. I didn't know they were there and then afterward actually the promoters said hey we had. Robert redford here and it was a three day race. That was friday night. i said. Why didn't you tell me. I didn't want to get the crowd. You know grinding. Let's concentrate on the race so next night. i said and i'm ladies a dental. Let you know that we had a major hollywood star here. Robert redford star of the sting etc. They're bullying me for an so. I didn't know so sunday night. They came again for the third race. And i announced it and i never saw redford. I didn't recognize him but he was there right. I told altri night. Yeah speaking of that. Do you have any memorable celebrity moments. I have one. I'm going to ask you about that. I heard from jim. Holly but do you have any Celebrity moments. I go down to hollywood. I know sure going to say about ali. I've met a lot of celebrities. They were all most are pretty nice. I was on fantasy island and ricardo. Montalban was very nice to me. Oh yeah catch who are rebuilding. Shay was a jerk. But you know strange. I heard on a knight rider episode. One time writer guided a bunch of dynasty just a slew of tv shows. Were you always amounts of those where they always like. Hey we need an announcer. We need height guy. and so. that's what yeah. That's exactly what it was and i would go to twentieth century fox or universal or wherever and i am it's one kaufman and i just go in and narrate. The thing makes sense. Give me a check. And i'd be gone. It was really simple. It wasn't anything really complicated about it. Right right right so our buddy jim holly. He asked me to ask you about the time. You've got playboy from ray charles on an airplane. Well he always expands these things we were we were flying saskatoon arena across. And we're going in the waiting room and sitting there is rate charles and his handler And oh my god. I and i and ray was reading a playmate or playboy magazine in braille. And i don't know why twenty people laugh at back from it. We don't want to bug it. But that was. That was hollywood story. Really getting braille. He's reading braille. yeah. I know they had that. Yeah had no such did dude so jimmy. Until this year jimmy was still involved. Supercross doing the race day. Live stuff and He's a really good friend of mine and the stories that he has the the ones that can be made for podcast and the ones that can't be told over the air on a podcast just phenomenal. Have you ever met anybody like jim. Holly no i never gave him the nickname hollywood. It was a natural. Obviously right for sure disobey god the things that he's seen done it's amazing he's a good guy. I mean i was. I'd like air from. I haven't heard from veneers. Yeah it'd be here's the thing. I've mccall bay. Yeah i will do that. I'll pass it on. So i always you know. Obviously i knew you as the voice supercross and growing up and you were the voice of of everything so we have our winnipeg arena across every year. And you would come up there. You would do. Winnipeg calgary saskatoon all these things. And and ross. Peterson is key canadian. Hero and jeff ixi and brooks and holly are coming up from america and and you used to like you just gold because you would like you would make it so like the are coming in and invading canada and ken rollerball. Stop these guys right. Can they do anything right. And it was a great feeder. Jimmy played it up right. Holly holly came out in the opening ceremonies with like sunglasses on. He was the guy from california. And you were. Hey can't ross do anything here and and it was just great theater man. Yeah you know interesting. Let me just throw something literally you can edit out anything you one of those. But i got hired by japanese company to bring over writers for the first japan. Supercross eighty two. Yep and i. I chose him. Suzuki guys didn't wanna go everybody else coming. Rj was eighteen at the time. and i. i got Ross and some people complain that he's he's he's not in america not that great i says. Let me let me tell you. This kid's going to be good. He finished seventh the tokyo stadium or stadium and surprise a lot of people and i was so proud of him. Yeah representing canada and doing so well in front of a sold out crowd of screaming japanese. Yeah yeah and. I can't even you know one time. Jim told me like one time jim. I might have been over a few beers. But jim was like. Yeah me and ross would basically be like. Hey you win. Edmonton calgary you in winnipeg. Whatever and then other times gyms like no we never had any kind of deal in place. And so i'm really confused even now on what it was but i will tell the people this listening to this. And you know those two had titantic battles. I think we're just stuff the shit out of each other in every turn. Yeah yeah you're right. You're right great now. The crowd went insane. Crowd went insane. You were whipping them up. The candidate versus usa thing. And i never you have people like i'm going back. I'm going back the next year. You know i remember. When there's a promoter named david horrid detsky. do you remember that name. I don't know whether he was a concert promoter. And i believe calgary. Okay i got a call from somebody. This guy wants to talk to you and i was announcing the dallas supercross twice good. Let's have lunch so i met with him. I had lunch with him and his and one of his guys. And he says i'm thinking about putting motorcycle races on and hockey arenas okay. What do you think and i said well. I think if it's done right you'll do okay. And he was to my knowledge the first promoter to ever stage that arena cross rates. And that wasn't one was called back. Then yeah but he hired me and like you said those solo cities in canada. We did it and it really worked. Well we'd back the place. Yeah and regret racist. And yeah larry brooks came out in his underwear to do the radical jump on amazing amazing. Yeah quick wayne gretzky story if you want to hear it. Yeah please do. We were we were in. I think inventory we were in a bar and and somebody said wayne gretzky who the hell is wayne. Gretzky i know right. But i didn't know the greatest hockey player in canada. I really so. I went over to him and i said mr gretzky me. He's yes by said. I'm larry health. But i'm an answer from california and we're having a reader cross race across the street at the arena. And i understand sir. You're going to take a couple of laps to bike. And he looked at me. Like i was crazy. I'm not going to get on a motorcycle. No problem it was funny. He was very nice. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah the things that you've so at your peak. How many weekends are you gonna hear like how much what are we. What are we talking. How are you doing. God is doing super cross and i was doing outdoor motocross around that time and i was doing speedway which is every friday night. I don't know man i was. I was gone on awful lot. It was seen as a tough schedule. Yeah like what are we talking. Forty weekends a year more than that. What what do you want to forty. At least jeez so back then you probably making pretty good money hilarie. You're probably crushing making good money out. Yeah do you ever lose your voice or anything. Yeah yeah yeah i. I did a race in canada. And and do muoi because doug focus. And i have a motel room together and i could barely talk and i i it was i was supposed to do a reysen in rhode island and i i flew there from i think toronto and I got there. I could talk. I mean i could barely understand i. I can't do this. And i flew home. I one of the few times. I bailed out on race but i just couldn't. Yeah just couldn't do it. yeah Did you ever do anything in europe. Do you ever go australia europe anything. I did japan europe. I i did the movie on any sunday to. And we went to silverstone. I just announcing their oh okay. Yeah and and then i went to peres span a number of time for suzuki and and announced off the gm six are racist there and also by did the series for suzuki. They hired me to film. The i g ethics are series. I don't know i've never even heard of that. I don't know what that is. I'm not a big race guy but yeah well gee essex. Our suzuki brought him out and seven. Eighty six okay and they were literally race bikes barely license for the street And they really pushed him at suzuka and they really did very very well. They sold a lot of them and they hire native to film a whole series. And i did. And i directed it and wrote it and filmed it and we we were in atlanta for the finale. And we'd hired a business kind of thing. Quick note we hired an ex The chopper pilots to film races on the track from the okay tracy gave me landed. Mr hoffman yesterday says how faster these bikes godi said about one. Hundred and forty on the straightaway. Excuse that explains that i by helicopter. We'll go that as we as we can't get the leader. Yeah yeah he's just like. I don't know what to tell you larry that's it. Yeah yeah that's interesting for sure it's a so what did you do you get blackballed from super cross. You're not welcome back to do that. Obviously i talked about those. Dvd's sets and you would do. How do you make a living. Larry what do you do. i mean. that's a massive income cut from you do you. Do you pick it up somewhere. Did you move into something like commercials and stuff that. I don't really know our how you you mentioned of furniture commercial halls for a few years. I just did a lot of. I had an agency and how clients and i would do commercials. And they generally speaking. I kept using me. So i kept commercials and that's pr- that's profitable like you can do enough to to to make a greeting. Yeah okay yeah yeah I'm also in the screen actors guild. So i got a monthly pension from that which really helps. So are you still pulling in checks from not router. Then he'll be about five cents. Yeah like oh look look aired again right or whatever so your voice. Of course this is ii conic. Where's the weirdest place you've been recognized with your voice. God jeez with my good one it at a porn theater. Where would like yeah like i. I got to think that if you're checking into a hotel or whatever they're like hey right recognized by the way live. i don't know i was. I was pretty straight. You know you know at that point. You know i mean that just like even even ordering a meal or anything people have people said anything to you about your voice and yeah yeah i was. I was pretty well known how they recognize. My voice is very unique and and they recognize it. So you're the guy on the radio or your guy from the so. Yeah yeah yeah. I forget what i was doing doing a podcast or i don't even know maybe i was doing something live live. Hit somewhere We do we do some live shows at these theaters before super causes. So maybe i was at one of those podcast show but i a mention of the roots are so deep that the top of german soldiers heads. Mine oh yeah. No i stole it from you larry hundred percent. And there's like. I don't think you could say that anymore. Mike really because you the times that we're in i'm like i said i feel like larry hoffman would would have been fired within thirty minutes in today's age. Like there's definitely some stuff that you said. That was pretty risque but of course it's a totally different time. You know. it wasn't totally. I was trying to try to be pretty straight. I really did was yeah did you. Did you say anything. Got you in trouble over the years. That almost cost you a job or did cost you a job Yeah trying to think what it was but Yeah i i did a sold out show at the orange county fairgrounds two years ago and i see like nine ten thousand people. I said i came very close getting fired. I said the sure registered withdrawing. We're giving away a night in a weekend and adventure land stormy daniels apartment and that that really pissed off people so i chewed up for that. Yeah yeah really right yeah there was We also there's one you seem to get into a few a few of the ones. I heard you like your like wardi worries. Mom scott got a porous or something. Random acts about these guys is great. Well one i took a lot of flack on one of them. And i feel bad to the state and i apologize to him but it was ronald. Shane went to japan. Yeah the writers and got busted up my said it. Here's tougher wanda she chopper. The japanese customer inspector and the crowd went crazy. And i thought that's terrible to and i went up to him after i did. I screw up. Yeah that was tie on. Never do it again. I will never use that line again. I used to san diego supercross. Boy i so this would have been ron. When he's on kelly when he switched to carry or what are the next year he's great. I talked to him all the time. He's a friend of mine so yeah he. He's a great guys doing well. Running maxima is business right so good. Oh yeah. I will absolutely tougher than japanese customs inspector ally. Yeah that's ballsy. I really liked that. Larry also like you you would. It was great like myself. And my buddy we laugh at this and we don't laugh at it in take it the right way. You were like johnson. He's a surfer. He's tall he's leaving wardi short stocky real tough like like you. Would you would build up the to the and it had to embody absurd and they were different personalities and everything else and we were like larry was just trying to get everybody to know like how different wardi and rj were. It's great and i mentioned. I'd forgotten this but somebody pointed in the south. I think word could bench five hundred pounds. Yes subject and i said yes squad. I think he's squad at you. See we're talking about squatting right. Yeah i mean you had all these obscure facts because you hung out with these guys right. I mean you know yeah yeah. Do you have a favorite location to colorado is one that comes to mind. I mean god they call him like you said with all those people maybe maybe one of them but it was a favorite location for you. Think probably anaheim. Because my home track track i lived in i lived in orange county and it was always sold out except for you know mickey thompson did one race after we got the whole thing back from good one uh-huh and when he was murdered after that and i went up to mickey the night of the race and i wasn't sold out it was almost and i said good race. Mckay good. like congratulations not good enough. And we didn't sell out and good ones soul out. Oh jeez yeah. Six hundred thousand right. Yeah that's what these guys are living for right.

I used to spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to remove tomato sauce for inside our microwave and soap. Scum off the bathtub. It's like seriously magic and my secret weapon for cleaning the kitchen. Bathroom doors walls and even keeping my sneakers clean mister clean magic eraser. Greatest invention ever mister. Clean magic eraser. The unicorn of cleaning. This is america's sports talk. Show sports byline. Usa here's ron bar. Alan trammell joins us on sports byline and inducted into the baseball hall of fame played his entire twenty year career as a shortstop with the tigers. He also managed the tigers as well. He won a world series championship. Detroit in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and he was the world series. Mvp also won four gold gloves and he grew up in. San diego was drafted in the second round of the seventy six draft. You know the hall of fame means a lot of different things to a lot of different players and people that go into the hall of fame but you waited such a long time. You had a chance to reflect on your career on your life and who you were in baseball alan. What did you think when you got the call about going into the hall. Well you what first of all that was. It was an overwhelming Jane clark I was. I'm not making this up. I was heading to the winter. Winter meetings Over a month ago to orlando from san diego and they knew they had already talked to all the potential Guys that were on the ballot and all ten of us and I told them. I was heading to the winter meetings. My flight was supposed to get in around five. Fifty and You know they're supposed to make the announcement by six so they were keeping their fingers crossed that my flight was on time which it was i was in the back of the plane Got the call right about five. Fifty two and a half. The plane had the plane. And i was just sitting there the jump up and down. I wanted to scream. But i kind of had to keep my composure. Because you know. I'm on an airplane. And there's a bunch of kids that want to go to disneyworld and and Boy my god you could imagine what my insides were like. That's how it came down and again it was just You know it was one of the most unbelievable phone call. You could ever get one of the things that i've always particularly appreciated about athletes. Those athletes that can play double digit years in their respective sports is the consistency and the continuity that they're able to maintain. It's not an easy thing as you know you know players that have played double digit years. Like cal ripken junior. How did you maintain that aspect to keep the enthusiasm and the excellence that you had as a standard for you playing baseball. Well it's it's a real good question. But i think that it would be pretty much animus with the guys that have done. This is that i. it's mental. It is a it is the fear of failure. It's not want to embarrass yourself for your teammates and each and every year. If you if you had a good year you wanna try to do it again duplicated. And if you didn't have such a good year you wanted to start all over. Turn to page a move on. And and and it's kinda the the kinda games that you play with your mind each and every year and you know you get to a certain point You know fifteen years or so into my career. And i know i can speak for lou whitaker on this Because he played with the tigers his his only eighteen as well is that we get to a certain point. Like well you know. Do you want to go somewhere else. No let's make this thing happen a lot of times guys. Don't have that opportunity. They don't have the choice but it got to a point that later on that we did have the choice and we both decided that we felt it was better to stay. And i'm so glad that we did. I want to ask you about a relationship. You had early in your playing career. You were playing for the tigers farm team in montgomery of the southern league. And you played your first game with teammate lou. Whitaker before you were promoted making your major league. Debut at fenway park. I wanna ask you about that relationship because it was almost like a hand in glove relationship. What made that relationship so so special. Well you know some things are just are are meant to happen. And i think that first and foremost. That's that's the first thing that comes to my mind. Because i just want to tell you a quick story. Most people do not know this but in one thousand nine hundred seventy six he mentioned I was drafted lewis drafted your before. He's from virginia so we did not play that first season. I'm a half a season. Came was playing his first full season and seventy six. he was the florida state. Mvp as a third baseman playing for. Jim leland he was the manager and lakewood. I had not met lu yet. We go to instruction of the middle of timber again. There's a guy that just won the mvp as a third baseman. We go to instructional ball. They moved him to second immediately. And that's how we teamed up. And jim was one of the coaches down. Eddie brinkman who was just retired from a couple of seasons before was our infield instructor along with others and we hit it off. And i think you know again. This is louis. A very talented young man. He never said boo. He didn't complain. He went over to second base. And lo and behold when i played nineteen years together in the major leagues. Let me ask you about nineteen eighty. Four darrell evans. And i have known each other for a long time and we have had long talks about that season. And i'm just wondering With sparky as your manager there wasn't as you look back on that Season particularly the start when you went thirty five and five and went on to win the world series. It you do you understand What was special about it. And what made it so successful could be honest with you. I know i. I'm smiling and shaking my head. You said thirty. Five and five. And i know that's in the books and we did it but i think my head to say how in the heck let's unbelievable. We set an american league record. We won seventeen games in a row on the road. These are things just this like nintendo. You just don't do these things that we did it and i think going back. We were ready that year. We had come in second that year before to baltimore and our division. They won the world series. We thought we were prepared to to make a run. And then that off season we we picked up. Darrell evans is a as a significant free agent side. We made a trade in spring training. We picked up willie hernandez and dave birdman and those were two. Big pieces of our ball club is well and it was just just the time and everything that sparks he did when we got off to that great start. He was a big believer coming out of spring training for the first month or six weeks to get everybody involved in a line because that's kind of how spring training works so we wanted to make everybody feel like they were still a part of it of course as the season you know kinda unfold. The regulars will start playing more but early on. He wanted to get everybody in there. He did and whatever lineup he pushed. He put he put in it. Worked and it was just one of those dream years You couldn't scripted it any better. You know bill walsh delay bill. Walsh was a good friend of mine and we were talking about his super bowl winning teams in football and one of the things he said to me. Is that when you have a good team and you have character players and talented players as well that really the leadership comes from within the locker room and doesn't have to be from the general manager doesn't have to be from the coach as well and i always sensed that season that was the way it was with the tigers was i right and then observations. You are a hundred percent correct. Ron you hit it right on the head and what happened was is again as i. Kind of just Eluded to is that we were. We were ready. We were getting to that point where we have some experience we had we had some. We had some success but we also had lost a tough ballgames. We're playing in the american league east. Which was you know you went to the battle. Some big boys there and sparking when he first came on it was tough. There was tough love. We did not understand it at the point. Fortunately we were smart enough to keep your mouth shut and listen but as we went forward and we got more experience. He loosened the reins and that year said you know who could have scripted. It any better. Nobody but the fact is that we were mature enough. We were experienced enough. We were ready to roll and it just all came. It came a couldn't have done it any better again. a scripted. any better but sports. He was a smart man. Even though you mentioned about we were experienced enough now that we can police ourselves. And that's ideally the best way to do it obviously. He's the captain of the ship but with the players police themselves that makes it even better makes it better clubhouse and we did exactly that you obviously had a good world series because you were the mvp of that world series. And also when you think about sparky as a manager had come over from cincinnati the american league and sometimes that's a difficult transition go from national league to the american league. Why did he make it successfully. Well he's a people person and he knew he knew personnel. He also told me and he goes. I ended up. You know coaching in the national league. He always told me tram us. Love the national it. Just because the pitchers involved you have to you know they have to learn how to bunt they have to learn how to to handle the bat things like that. And i'm glad that i was able to at least experience the national league from a coaching side but You know what the good managers that great managers. And i'm gonna put spark at the top and he certainly one of them. He knew his personnel. It he knew what buttons to push and sometimes again you know he. You know You know sometimes with a jack or a kirk gibson. You know those were those. Were you know some some guys that Maybe not the easiest guys for a manager to handle but he can do it and low and behold. We're all very thankful that we cross paths with sparky. That he was he was the one he was our mentor. He was the guy that showed us the right way. Not only on the baseball field but off and again. I'm just you know appreciative. That that we cross paths that he was my manager and might twenty years. He was a manager of seventeen. You know there's a handful only a handful of baseball teams that our economy teams they talk about the yankees they also talked about. The chicago cubs the boston. Red sox but i really feel the detroit. Tigers fall into that court category. Just as well and i want you to give me a sight sound kind of smell. Feel of the old tiger stadium because i used to go there and cover games and do games and everything else and i found it probably is distinctive and as individuals. Any ballpark. like fenway park or like wrigley field. I totally agree at in. Here's a west coast kid. Who grew up here in san diego or some of the other parks that i went to the anaheim stadium or dodger stadium. Where they have the acreage and the parking. And i the first time that i when liu and i called up from double a and we're driving and the cabdriver says there's tiger stadium and i'm looking and it looked like a warehouse and then you could see the light standards on top. There's no parking. Like i was accustomed to as a young boy growing up on the west coast. It was a distinct advantage for me playing in that ballpark completely. Double deck enclosed stadium where the people were stopping their feet. It felt like you know the stadium was gonna fall down. It was rocking and the dugouts were small and the visiting team's not like coming in there because the club houses were small dugouts for small. But i enjoyed it. I felt it felt like baseball. And i think that for me is the best way to describe it. you know. it's no longer up. But i can close my eyes and i can smile and digitalized great memories that i played my entire career as the home field and You know i just. I loved it. It was one of the iconic. Obviously they don't make them like that anymore But i thought it was a great place to play baseball. One of the things i admire about you is that every athlete especially if they play twenty years is going to have to deal with the injury factor in new certainly had to deal with a lot during the course of your career but never took away the enthusiasm you had for playing the game and playing at an excellent level and that's not always an easy thing to do allen. Tell me how you were able to maintain that well. I just think that there's something that i was blessed with. I mean it just something and again going back to even you know even before you know grade school Baseball was my. I love sports. I just i was a sports fanatic. It didn't matter what what what was in season. Whatever ball that was. That was what i enjoyed and it just again. It just something. I believe that i had in me. I know my parents would say that you know from the time i was a baby that can crawl you know when they used to you know. Put a ball or something In my crib. Or when i first started to walk that i just gravitated to so it was something that early on that. It came fairly easy. Because i did have Some at hand eye coordination that you need to have in sports but it was just something that it just always was part of the and whatever you know whatever. It was in season as i mentioned. That was what i loved. Obviously baseball was my first love and just going back to the history reading. I couldn't get enough about. During the summers i'd go to the library and reading the autobiographies on athletes and it was just something that i enjoyed and You know i'm still a big little kid. I'm gonna turn sixty next month and You know what I don't move around as well as i used to. But i still. I'm still young at heart. And that's my story. And i'm sticking to it. We only have about two minutes left in when you managed in the major leagues. I always thought that maybe you weren't as comfortable as you were when you were a baseball player because you played the game during a komo's the different era and when you were managing it was a different time As far as money. And maybe a motivation for players as well Were you is comfortable managing because you played it in a certain way and there was a certain. Feel about the game when you were playing it. That was probably different when you were managing. Well i think ron i. That's that's a fair assessment. It wasn't. I wasn't uncomfortable. But if you asked me where it was i most comfortable. Oh it was on a baseball field. Plank number one managing the adrenaline. That you get as a manager is the next best And i and i try to describe that in a way when you're playing obviously you're out there you. Have you have something to say about the outcome. Good or bad as a manager. You're worried about twenty five guys and you do care about each and every one when you're a coach of the infield guy you know you're worried about your influence your hitter hitting coach. You're worried about those guys. You're pitching coach. Your worry about those guys as a manager. You're worried about everybody. So it's the next best thing Unfortunately i i look back into coaching staff. What we did You know few years is that You know we've laid the groundwork for you know for for the future. Obviously we did not have the type of talent at that level we knew going in at. What's it gonna be the greatest team In baseball history but we we cherish the opportunity to try to help and to coach and teach and help some of these young men. I think we did some of that. Obviously jim came in. But hey that's that's how it goes. I wanna thank you for your time allen and thank you for sharing your insights not only on the game that you love but you played with such great distinction but i also wanna point out. What a gentleman you always were. I remember being around you doing interviews with you during the course of your career. You always took the time and you explained everything. I appreciate that.

Today's episode by guest today on finding freedom is phil. Lawlor fill is the author of contagious faith. Why the church must spread. Hope not fear. In a pandemic fill is editor of catholic world news. His writings have appeared around the united states and abroad including in the wall street journal the los angeles times the washington post and the boston globe phil welcome to finding freedom. Thank you for having me. Well it's great to have you here phil and as i was telling you in the pre show chats your book really resonated with me. I know that Yourself are a catholic and i'm not a catholic but i am a christian and i think is very very important book for this time when we're we're sort of at a an interesting point where we're kind of hopefully through this pandemic and starting to look back on what's happened so i think it's a great time to kind of reflect on what's happened with the church. The decisions that have been made and things of that nature but before we get into talking about your book. Contagious faith Maybe if you could just give my audience a little little background about yourself. Sure i've been in catholic. Journalism journalism generally. For longer. Than i want who had hit this point about forty years. I've been editor of crisis magazine and catholic world report and i started catholic world news which is an online news service operating on the internet and Still doing that and writing books occasionally been involved in politics and religious affairs for most of my adult life so this particular book Obviously i could ask you. What motivated you to write it. But i think it's pretty pretty relevant just based on you know when you read the book the pandemic end and your feelings as you're watching this unfold but let's kind of turn turn the pages back to february march of twenty twenty when this whole thing starts to unfold and you're up mess up massachusetts. Which is you know if we look back on the way. Things played out and a different areas. Where lockdown probably more so stringently locked down then a lot of the country a lot of the united states obviously people author the world can listen to this and i know you talk about a different areas in the world. You're talking about australian. What's happened there as well. But just to talk about the united states and your experience at the beginning of covert. What did you take us back in time to that point in time. Where is your mind as you were watching this. Play out and unfold. Well you know. When i first heard about it i guess i it very i. It was something that was happening. Far away in china and we weren't very much worried about it and then when we started to get predictions about how dire the situation was i was fearful. I think nearly everybody was fearful the predictions that i was hearing back in march of twenty twenty. The suggested that about one. Out of every five americans would die of this disease and so naturally was scared. We were all scared. It was a while before we started to get some perspective on the disease and the level of contagion on the level of fatality which was nowhere near what we originally given to understand so It was it was a learning process but what frustrated me is. There wasn't a whole lot of learning. There was so much propaganda so much fear and the media Cooperated with the people who wanted to assert control over their lives to make sure that we had a steady diet of fear journalism and Eventually as i looked at what was actually happening as opposed to what was reported. I realized this just wasn't the disease that it had been painted edited been made out to be. I'm not saying it wasn't a serious disease. Obviously it was and it is it still is but not nearly on the level to justify the extraordinarily ratchet us agree point important important to point out. Yes this is a a nasty virus A lot of people have died from it and it does affect more so those who are older or do of underlying conditions. I don't think anybody is disputing that. But i think it's great that you pointed out a lot of these mitigations that were i put in place the lockdowns shutting and businesses. Halting of you know church services Those are put in place when we thought that one out of every five people could die from it and that just after we found out. That wasn't the case. That sort of just stayed in place. So as you're watching this unfold and you're seeing the decisions the church is making. What point in time did you start to really grow concerned and start to speak out right away and in march twenty twenty. I can tell you when. I was just absolutely stunned. Was when a very suddenly. I couldn't go to mass and this is. This is the center of my life. And i grown up hearing reading about times when the church was under persecution and churches were shut down. I understand that but this wasn't persecution. This was the churches shutting themselves down at the same time. The government was shutting itself. Down are not shutting. The government didn't shut down given never shuts but shutting everybody else down. The government never stops taking your money but they stopped working. They shut down their Their state the state government basically stopped doing any of the processing of you know business forms of nature so yeah but right and the courts shut down an and they shut down businesses and it was a spectacularly. I mean i tried to make the tried to hammer home this point. I'm not sure that it's it's really cut on that. This was the most extreme public policy in history. Outside of total war this was governments shutting down businesses knowing that they were gonna crash the economies and doing it deliberately was stunning. But you're asking me about the church and and to me. It was even more stunning. If indeed we were in danger of death all the more reason to be right with god. I mean all the more reason to do what is most important in your life. An in the book. I asked the sort of rhetorical question. What would you do if you knew you only had another month live. Would you want to spend that month locked in home watching net flicks which is apparently what the government wanted you to do you know would you want to do whatever is most important to you. Would you want to spend the time with your family with your loved ones. You know you wanna finish up those projects that you have still undone it's we were unmanned by this reaction you know we were. We were off our plans of life and Again it was most distressing to me that the church went along with this because the church of all places should be a place where you can find perspective perspective perspective on life and also a perspective on death because you know something else that this virus opened up to is. I think we americans today twenty first century. We tend to forget we are. We are going to die. You know it is going to happen unfortunately and yes you have a right to life but you don't have a right to be protected from eventually getting sick and dying. It's going to happen. And we need. We need to keep that in perspective and not let it completely unmanned us when when we do face the prospect of death. You couldn't agree with that more. And i feel like a lot of this is those who are the most fearful of death and and maybe a lot of them probably lacking faith Sort of took the reins of society and because of their fear. They were able to to push around. You know those of us who who have faith should not be the case. Shouldn't and there should be pushed back. There should be a strong pushback. And we live in a country where we have a first amendment where we're guaranteed the right to religious freedom and right to assembly and those guarantees were sort of left by the wayside because the church is voluntarily gave up those rights. The churches closed themselves. And that was the part that i find Inexplicable and unforgivable. So a couple of different places in the book you talk about you know you pose the question. When should the church bow to the demands of the state. And you answer that question saying never you do some qualifications there. You can expand on that but can you explain your your reasoning there. Sure the purpose of the first amendment is to recognize that the right to religious freedom is prior to the state. It's not the state grants the right to religious freedom. It's that it's an inherent. God given right a natural right over which state has no control and should have no control now when you are building a church. You have to adhere to the fire code. You have to adhere to local zoning. That's that's fine. That's the church acting as a citizen and has to be like every other citizen but when the government tells the church how to act as a church when the government starts giving instructions on. How you can conduct communion services. That's not the business of the government. That's the business of the church. The only person in a catholic diocese telling giving instructions on how to conduct liturgy. Is the bishop of that dialysis. If anybody else attempts to he should tell them back off and be ready with his lawyers if necessary or be ready to defy. What is obviously an unwarranted intrusion of government. And you know when the supreme good did vindicate the rights of the church. Eventually when the case came before them and the supreme court ruled that the Kovac virus did not eliminate the first amendment. You know it's still holds a lot of people talk you know the separation of church and state and how important that is but with people miss when they're when they're talking about that is it's not there to protect the state from the church. Is there to protect the church from from the states and is that the catholic church and really a most major different denominations of faith have become so married to society and governments that they're afraid to to step away to to step out to to to To make a stand. What are your thoughts on that. And what can be done going forward. So it doesn't happen again. Can i let me. Can i start at. The end of that. Question starts wherever you want. I like asking questions that go multiple different ways okay. This isn't just an academic question. This isn't just a history lesson at this point. You know people are thinking at this point. Okay here we are in june of twenty twenty one. It looks like the cova vaccine. The is getting people more comfortable where up the rates of infection going down and so forth. but don't for a minute. Thank that this couldn't happen again. There could be another epidemic or there could be something much less serious than covid. There could be something it maybe. It's just a seasonal flu next year. But suppose the cdc says well you know to protect against yourself against the flu. You better wear masks again. You better not go to parties again. You better not go to church again and wants to close us all down again. This a precedent that has been set. And it's a frightening precedent. It should never been set and we've got to. We got to push back now. We've got to assert ourselves now. Now i think you ask the question of While remind me what was the beginning. I started out just talking about you. Know the idea of the separation of church and how people get that backwards right and i think the church needs to reassert itself in. You're making the point. You were making the point that i try to make throughout my book that what went wrong as far as the church is concerned is the too many church leaders were seeing themselves as sort of adjuncts to the cabinet as s community leaders. Which of course yes. They are community leaders. But that's not what they are primarily their spiritual leaders and too many religious leaders worrying about our physical health rather than our spiritual health. You know. I don't look to my bishops for guidance about my physical health. I talked to my doctor. I need guidance. On that score the bishops has no particular authority no particular knowledge about that And we are mature adults. You know we should be able to make our own decisions about what sort of risk we're willing to take going out. You know where we're willing to go. You take risks all the time. You take a risk every time you get in your car every time you get down a flight of stairs and if you're a mature adult you make intelligent decisions. About what risks you want to take and we need I think to assert ourselves all of us but particularly in things that are most important to us. We need to assert ourselves and say we don't want the government telling us how we should conduct our lives like we're freezing up. A little bit is that is the video freezing on your end to get here. Okay let me let me try one thing. I'll cut this part out weird. I'm getting like a flickering on the stream. We'll just we'll just keep going so a A remedy a solution of away to prevent this going forward. And you talk about this in. The book is those of us that have faith to not succumb to the right heavy faith over fear. And living that way showing. It's your neighbors so can you. Can you explain expand on that. Yeah well that's that's the main theme of the book and the reason. I called it contagious. Faith because fear is contagious. In we've seen how dangerous i think. Fear was more contagious than the virus in the past year. But faith is also contagious. When it's real and once lived with a purpose and with with you know boldly when it's evangelical and if we as christians made it clear that our faith really is the most important thing to us that we believe in the power of our faith in the power of our prayer that our prayer our worship as the center of our lives of people are gonna notice and noticing. People are going to say well. You know it's just a lot more attractive to live that way then to live behind closed doors worrying about whether he might get sick. You know again you. You might get sick. Yes but are you going to live a going to let the fear of sickness dominate your whole life or are you going to demonstrate what's most important to you and if your faith is most important to you again people will notice people will see that. That is living witness to the faith and that's contagious. I've seen it so many times. When you see people who live of life of integrity that's motivated by their faith. Faith you admire them and you want to imitate them. And that's how communities of faith grow you know. Watch you read about how the how. The christians became a force in the early days of the church in the roman empire. It was because they were distinctive. They acted differently. People noticed them. People said these people. These are people who are motivated by their faith. We need to know more about this. And so they're open to hearing the gospel message in a way that they wouldn't be if you're just acting like everybody else i think that's so important and it's it's tough to overcome. I'm because obviously the media is just engulfing the entire situation in in fear and you know there were several you pastors in different churches. That continue to me. It's an of course whenever any single one or any person in the church or any church leader got sick or died because there were some that died. That was the front page. You know these people met in person in somebody died just to just instill that fear in everyone. So it's difficult to overcome that fear. But i mean just just like you're just like you said there is nothing more important in life than salvation. There's nothing more important in life. Your relationship with god so to put other things ahead of that. It's not the right way to live. It isn't and by the way what's the benefit you mentioned there are. There were occasions where there was a an event that occurred in church and firmly a lot of people contracted the virus. And okay. you do want to take reasonable precautions. I don't wanna food that on the other hand look at the number of people who died in places that should have been safe in nursing homes in hospitals especially nursing homes at home you know and look at the toll that was taken. I mean another thing that. I explore another question that i explore in. This book is the tremendous collateral Collateral damage of the lockdown. You know we the things that we did in order to make sure that people didn't die well. Those things caused a lot of people to die whether it's the cancer patients who didn't get screening and so the cancer wasn't caught him. Time are the people who had drug problems or suicidal Imagery problems are domestic abuse. Problems in there's a tremendous toll that took place and it's a toll that took place. It's a toll that we suffered a and it's a toll that you could be measured in deaths and it's mostly a toll of fear and despair and these are the things that faith can overcome and as you point out in the book. It's a toll that it's still happening and it's we're going to continue to see The collateral damage as you put it in cases of depression. And you know just to focus on you. Know kids who've been forced to wear masks and you know you can argue if that's if that's right or wrong. I get angry when people will say well. There's no consequences to them if they wear. The mask is just safety. Well of course there's consequences. You know these little kids where they're developing minds who aren't able to see if someone's smiling or read facial reactions or they can't do it themselves so they can. They're not getting that response back and forth a human level. You're totally changing things absolutely. We are our kids are guinea pigs here. We are experimenting on a generation for you and me. You know old enough we've seen with. We know how to read phases. We've gone through that development phase But if you're a four year old child you've now spent most of your conscious life looking at people wearing masks. And what's that gonna do to you. I don't know. I mean. I think we'll find out and i doubt it will be good. Yeah i strongly doubt or be good. And i can't stand what people say. Well there's there's no there's no downside it's just it's just safety well that's very very shortsighted. So let's talk about this great great line in the book. Which i think is i think really says a lot about not just cove but but about the way that the church in the world Interact that sort of relationship and talking about You know the church. The church understands the world but the world does not understand the church. So can you expand on what you mean by that. Yeah well. I think the point i'm trying to make. There is the church of sees things through the eyes of faith sees things through the eyes of eternity and A secular society doesn't and if you're looking if you have a higher a broader perspective than you see things that the other guy doesn't see. The government sees the church as a collection of people like any other collection of people. The church sees the government in the perspective of faith. You know in the in the spectacle of the new testament and sees that covenant governments come and go governments are important but they are not the most important thing governments tend to think that they have the most important thing in the world. They're not yeah. Governments tend to think if they if they went away or they are reduced in size that the whole world fell apart. I don't think it would now. But i think figure it out right so you know obviously with covid worship did continue when they you know they brought down. These lockdowns allow people to go back and making reservations and wearing masks. And you talk about one. Pastor at a church did a baptism with a squirt. Gun crazy. things like this right. So what's your. What's your view on this sort of evolution that we've seen there's been obviously a lot more remote worship Do you think there's a place for that going forward. What's what's your view on all that stuff. I think that some worship look computers than the online business are great. You know we're doing it now. It has its place. I enjoy it. I do a lot of it but there is an element of worship. That has to be personal in person. communal. You can't do it on a computer you have to do it with other people in. Oh jesus talks about one two three again that in my name. He doesn't talk about one two three or online and it's it has to be it's not the same to do it online and i'm very worried With the churches that have for months been telling people. Don't worry if you can't get you can just watch online will. How are they going to get those people back. Eventually into the pews. How do you walk that back. How do you tell okay now. We really do think that you should come to church. Be part of the community participate in worship with your fellow believers. How do you say that. After months of telling them. It's not so important. I think we're gonna see a significant drop off in the number of people go to church and for an awful lot of churches including the catholic church in the united states. This comes at a time when we already have. Plunging numbers of people are affiliated with the church. Now that's the downside. And i don't want to leave. Your view is completely depressed. Because i do think that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and i see that in the churches that have done everything. They can to continue worshipping that that have pressed that a press the envelopes on the restrictions or sometimes defied them. That have shown that it's very important to them. These churches are booming. These churches are getting people to come and now that The lockdown is less strict. Not quite over but less strict people going to those churches. Much more than going to the others. You're seeing a bit of a realignment. And i think the liveliest church is the most evangelical churches are going to have a a bit of renaissance. And i think you'll see more and more people interested in them flocking to them and they will grow and that's again my thesis. That faith is contagious. I definitely agree with that i. I'm kind of split on the On the remote worship I'm i mean. I'm not gonna live on my family. We've been remote worshiping basically this whole time with our church but there is a need for we also had personal connection as well remotely. We had a small bible study group that we met with that was very helpful but there is no there is a. I do agree. There is a need to be in person. there is need to be in community. There is a need to be in a room full of people worshiping. The there is definitely a place for that But i have seen some really cool things happen like just like just personally my parents. Mri wife's parents who you know for different reasons. They're they're all christians but they've different denominations and there was always trouble getting them to go to church together and during this time for the first time in a long time both sets of our parents were sitting down on sundays and watching a remote worship. So it's taking that and the moving that forward from there making that connection. But i think there's there are some positive aspects to the remote worship of this. This is awful lot that can be done and and people have been very creative and inventive in doing it. It's just particularly enough of the catholic. Church are sacraments are all Tactile sacraments you have to have water for a baptism. You don't know much else but you do need to have water. You do need to poorest. No spot guns nas greg. John's yeah and you need you need bread and wine to infect the interests and you need a bishop to put his hands on a man to make him a priest. These are physical presence. Things you know and you can't do them remotely. That's not to say you can't do wonderful things remotely but there are some things you can't do. I definitely agree with you there. And i i i think as a whole i think maybe promote worship is a good way to start but yeah i think at the end of the day becoming a part of that community and and being in community with other believers is ultimately. What needs to happen. Grow your faith. I've been asking another question. Lead up to people who've written books that it's gotten some interesting reactions. But i think it's a good question because i i read the book but i probably missed a lot of stuff. So is there anything that i haven't asked today that i've missed. That was really important that you wanted to talk about from the book. I guess it's something that i touched on earlier. Which is the that. This is not a dead issue. I wrote the book in part. Because i realized with horror that we were going to celebrate easter for the second consecutive year with no public celebration to speak off. I said that just can't be the liturgical life of the church cannot be just swept under the rug like that an and not once but twice. And now i'm looking forward and i'm saying will it happen again and i'm fearful that it could happen again because i wrote the book because i wanted to make sure there was at least insofar as i could offer to correct fraternal. You can't do this again. And i know that a lot of people feel the same way i know. I know fair number of catholics. Who have gone to the bishops and said that. Just don't do this whatever happens. Don't do that again. Go close down the churches. I hope you're right. And i think at the end of the day. This has opened a lot of people's is obviously not everyone's is there's so many people maybe the majority think that what the government did and what churches did by shutting down as the right thing to do but really policy and changes in society are really accomplished by vocal minority. Anyway so we need to have a majority of that agree with us on this but exactly sorry go ahead again. Faith is contagious I love that. Are we'll fill.

We hope that messiah the next one is not when obama hoping trump. Now we're going to shoot down. The trump thing and since the escalator in fifteen. We've done by six years of the rump report. Everyone you know a friend of mine used to you and he just all this. It is it. Is it so we we down that road. But he was a big rumpole. Right see you wear now rob. Paul love aleutian hat twenty twelve. They know we've krino all about that. And then now. You've gone back to your roots. Anarchists again yes or no alpha. Phi my on all that. You are pretty accurate. Actually a of right down to me being in high school. I found alex jones h. Thirteen lead me to gain more involved through occupy wall street. It's time out email. Young girls hang out. Good said foul. Alex jones did it. It's always a young man and all that role friends are like Make it allen. Hell did you catch all alex jones. We can't go anywhere to explain that. Okay that's thirteen years old. I was really into world of warcraft. And i was on a forum and someone just sensor link into the pharmacist back in late. Two thousand eight thousand nine right. Our obama just became president. You know and someone puts a link in the forums about just going off about. How much hates the police about how he's police are horrible with her. Little boy frame. Glasses and our students sessions. Alex jones alex jones and pike up and i walked veal my younger. Get it a love this guy. He's angry they love it and so it's sort just pushed me more into wind understand what's going on in the world my parents you know there are what i call white wine liberals. I was raised in berkeley california. And they they watch cnn type stuff for you know like obama. They would watch bomb on the ellen degeneres show or something else news from now kid. You know finding all these different links on youtube through different forums which were for world of warcraft. Mind you and that led me into things like occupy wall street. What was going off. The songs with snowden over with actually arrested. When i was in high school law. These things happened right around the time i was sixteen seventeen. And that's what really got me pumped over. Are i mean you look at me now. Pretty blonde blue hair in high school. I was at a punk rock band. I was a drummer I i was a little crazy. You know and i i never skipping school for a few days ago. Protests world I did. I did some crazy stuff. And i feel like it's really fueled me to keep pushing more and more and more and so i definitely was more so an anarchist but my parents like hey listen kid you you gotta calm down or your future's basically ruined you know got to go to college you gotta go to uc berkeley. You gotta get normal degree like everyone else. Berkeley yeah you got to go to uc berkeley uc berkeley alumni. So i was like think want to go i wanted. I wanted to be officially activists since i was about sixteen years old and my parents will. You can't do which is funny because my parents go on and on about how they protested nam and they were these freedom. Fighters were the ones who voted for obama second term after his drone strikes which doesn't really make sense. I'm just getting her to get your a charger for your phone and get the battery thing. And whatever charges. He needs to import percent of my gonna survive. Fine shange right down there. I'm saying with though float guys. So yeah they're going to be aaron and kingsley. You're going to be over here. We're gonna have afloat happy hour of you know hopefully bringing alcohol. I mean you know Here at the spot and then we'll have a good time. You know. I really like those guys. How do you know kingsley and erin. Hayes tried to network with as many people as i possibly can. This is my first pork fest. I turns out. I basically know everybody here already. I'm not personally intellectually. I'm just involved with everything especially from. uc berkeley. I was on the ground when all those riots happened. I was taking footage. I was processing everything especially the students when you're walking from the library back to your house where you're staying and your camp is on fire because some guy of them gay you know contrary wants to say some mean things you know. It's like whatever modern offices on campus and our burn down or campus. I mean there's fireworks everywhere this. What was interesting in that. You know you're being there. Unit can kinda attest to this It was allowed. They like encourages them at the cops breaking windows something. There was some weird stuff going on students. Wrong clapping and whatnot irish thinking back. You know. I'm not the biggest fan of milo should contrary united give a crap. Point walk. point is is that you're literally one point of the free speech movement started in nineteen sixty four and now you're smashing windows because some dude wants to speak and you agree with him on the same plaza that nineteen fifty four basketball free was just the irony. Just you got i mean. Was everyone everyone. I knew who went to uc berkeley. Even my dad was like. That's a little strange but again white wine liberals they don't really process it too much. Don't look too much until the administration. There they were near encouraging. Very i mean. Where does that come from. I offer protest again. I got started off looking at things like occupy wall street. But you're going to things like the police were involved in several riots after the my event And people were getting their heads. Fashion with bike locks and people talk about how the police are there for the police care about. You always trump people you know. I used to be a trump person myself for a short period of time of course We saw the police care about you when i was at the berkeley riots. The police stood there with their shields and helmets and they did nothing and actually watch them. Walk away So honestly just watching everything that was happening in berkeley. Also sort of you know trick back getting back into politics you know. Of course i thought trump was the guy quote unquote to revamp a you know. Destroy the republican party from the inside. Then of course you know. He kept sending missiles into syria. Refuse to julian assange just several other things. I wanna go into also start cussing but you know it was just a whirlwind of life for me because i went from being this anarchist kid who seems to really. Just be up front about everything. I revamp back in college. But i felt were lied to during my time. Supporting trump if that makes sense. Why wouldn't it make sense. I i mean. I thought that was kinda sorta almost lie. Do you guys happens. But i want. This is a big revelation for you relations. Impeach our number. Big ron paul. In two thousand twelve obviously. I'm wearing the hat But with with trump it was my first time voting. Everyone around me was like this is the guy who's gonna change things. He's like the next. Ron paul and that was like when hillary clinton was being on the war drums again. It was my first time voting. I was very naive. I just washed over time and soil. Like wait a minute. He's sending missiles into syria and so we woke me at the same way. I was awakened. I guess in high school because they were in high school seventeen years old and sandy hook just happened and some kid across the classroom for me says while i'm just ban. All the guns will be no gun. Crime then lightbulb right then and there went off my head so watching trump the first person i voted for. You always things in breakaways promises like wait a minute. that's right. this is where i need to be this way. I need to be thinking and It sort of regain my ability to understand where i really was in the world. Now my goal is to basically take very trump supporting audience and swerve encouraged. Educate them going back to our anti. Let's go and talk about your audience. All god's ashton birdie how many subscribers ya'll's if i'd care i haven sixty thousand right now one hundred sixty thousand. These people are what they're mainly trump supporters. I would say. I was really surprised because i started recently post. I took a year long. Break serve revaluate myself. And i was really surprised because when i started posting again i started making anti cop videos antiwar videos anti two party system videos. I thought to myself these guys are going to hate me. They're going to lead by watching the comments. Section and trump people people like blue line things in their in their profile. Pictures are speaking out against the police. Speaking against trump speaking out against the two party system and it's almost like i feel like everything that trump three promise trump broke is starting to wake up people along side me and i feel like it's almost a glimpse of hope that we can bring people together because i remember when i was in if he gets elected twenty four. He's really really gonna do it. But i honestly need. Trump made me realize voting. Really doesn't do anything. It really does especially when it comes down to a democrat republican when both parties are supported by the same corporations. The same warmongers Same no see. I'm sitting here looking. Because i think i remember some of your stuff. We may have put up on phoenix really know. And that's how i'm sitting on. Thank god i think. I remember you now. You know this is because our site feared scenic we cover a lot of this and of course What what's one of the I think one of the first things that you may have done on your channel to where you were like critical of trump in any way you were kind of this went after him throwing missiles into syria and i got a lot of pushback actually from people. I mean within the first few months and like listen guys. We voted for this guy but he's already breaking promises and it was. The craziest thing has van the trump quote was so bad that you slightly critique trouble you understand guys. It's eight feet chefs and it was the most exhausting thing. Oh gosh i'm going to be sure. I hate hyun on so much. It's the most ridiculous. It's a coolness accident. Self is a colt but there is no one with inside the fed who is going to come save us. There is no wonder within the country and took the oath series in white hats of special forces them with an assistant. Who's going to help us right. Everyone has their some police doing this. And this ness right but in a day when things hit the fan. Either going to be the people who are police. Say you know what. I'm throwing down my badge. I'm not doing this anymore. Screw the system and then the other guys were like i keep my job hand over your guns. So it's it's when people say luke things like blue lives matter to me. It's like our founding fathers saying we'll read coat lives matter to is the exact same thing. I mean entire clench. Well you a lot of interaction with police. We do up long story but You know they they. We make nice them know what's going on. We were on cnn. I'm saying we're here to protect our rights. If they were wins one gun thing man with a gun. And i've been whatever on cnn. You'll do my spiel in this case that they were. They were doing their job. Well of course there's some people in the city count day. You're not to be supposed to be doing their job helping early. I mean what the hell was doing it wrong. Not constitute onto you protect us. That's the thing like they don't actually have to protect us as individuals but they are there to protect rights. You know what the hell they good for you know. So and if they're not the whole purpose of is defensive individual rights they don't do that on the altar abolished. You're right you're duty. Bow plane government is doing its actual job so this is one thing that came up and they were gonna and they were trying to get you know they're thinking I was more of a you know all media. I should be more supportive of the police in the blue line. They're going that route right and i go. Hey man we support good cops you show me a good cop. I'm all over. The i got good cop stories on the site all the time. Good cop you know. Help save the kitten from the tree. Your but so. I'm going but you want me. I go my definition good. You've got a good cop for me now. Pippa crap out of them. This is my definition of good cop. The one that turned in a bag and they got silent. Like an we got that. Good a cop you know. We don't pick their gops. Turn it in their jobs so you can tell their mindset. You know it's really and they've they've driven out any of the guys that we did have that we work with on from the nineties and so on there's been a conscious effort to drive those people out so you don't you know i. I'm wondering if there's any good ones left and like you say the system sure as hell is there to support the system that's for damn skippy pension. You no. that's it doesn't all bound. We won't take your money and also more importantly we don't really need police if everyone owns a gun. If you don't defend yourself you really don't hurt. You are cancelled and you say listen. Well how the hell do you even got youtube channel. You're not saying this stuff on this latest video about this. Is i mean listen you i was just talking about with this with someone who lives on the country right. They moved from the city to the country on the sheriff learning told them listen by a gun because if you call us if someone's breaking into your house or something happens it will take us an hour to get to your house and even in assemblies. The police fairly show up the. Please don't get there until the murder or theft is done and they don't do anything about it afterwards. Mad they they're just they're the draw the chalk line of around a dead body and notify next to can use wanna make sure. It's not your next to kin. I mean you know. I'd and so these are i'm from arizona so we really already had this battle on the gun thing you know over the years we've been relaxed about it because it's an easy argument to win and and you find out that once it becomes the only way you're gonna get elected in arizona. You know gabby giffords. It got shot in the head. She's campaign pictures before that. She's told they are fifteen and stuff. I mean you know this. Is you know the they're they're all about you know getting elected. They'll pinky swear all kinds of stuff. I got by. Tell me how they're not going to take the guns away. Then beat o'rourke was he say. Oh yeah we're taking them. yeah. I'm getting the guns away. He even said the Constitutions is not absolute. Ask giving them any props but they you know he'll come on man on your man you i've just come on man i know exactly what is a police. She's a cop as well. So i mean we got kamala harris in an office that is you. Don't find any pride in having the first woman. Vp not she said. I can't even hinders thing or state prosecutors state prosecutors. Say it was. I don't even process. Her as legitimately the vice i just. Don't i mean siphon the election fraud i mean just some of the crap that she says and the ideology and actually be has. It's not a can't. I can't see that as vice president i process. I mean a seller from the area who has witnessed my friends lose their fathers to life long sentences for just probably marijuana on their personnel. And they're still serving lifelong per of sentences. Meanwhile marijuana is now legal in california and kamala harris is part of the reason. Those people are still in prison and she's now vp. And she's doing anything about it. She's not using her power to say. Hey you know marijuana's legal in california. Maybe these guys should be serving life sentences anymore. Non violent crime. Mind you. these people are in prison. Still and are watching murderers and rapists and files get released before they do that to me is psychotic. It's the narrative. This is the one thing that i've really starting to come to realize even recently is that the reason this stuff it doesn't make sense because you don't understand what the goal is to keep people in prisons prisons make more money when there's more people on them and the war on drugs keeps big pharma and making more money. I know since both my parents were big pharma. I'm looking at a lot of the stuff that's being done and sad. And why would they allow that not that. And why would they do. Because there's a narrative that's when something becomes quote unquote legalized. It becomes a subsidy if the government which is why you know. We're here at pork casino in. Bitcoin's a huge topic here. Bitcoin becoming a legalized currency in el salvador. I personally don't see is the biggest win because think about it. L. salvador's government very corrupt. You know they're going to do something with that. You know their tax the crap out of that you know they're going to abuse. Yeah there's something weird going on there because When they make it legal tender bitcoin crypto because if they just make it bitcoin and they're giving everybody thirty dollars in bitcoin was was one of the things or hell. That's a transaction fee. That's that's basically that's you you'd be on it for cost thirty dollars to do a transaction fee. It's a it's a non now you be. I was triggered. It just went to them. It's like you know what minor got that. this is just what what's the. What's the purpose of a cryptocurrency. If it's not taking over the fed and getting rid of the fed and just replacing the third reserve already. Is you assume saying if the firm if the feds control bitcoin to the point that they want to get to. What's the point in crypto currency anymore. We need something new to replace that. The whole point of bitcoin originally with the tape down the federal reserve and now the feds are trying to take over bitcoin. Allman sucks dot gov ping you one little tidbit. I keep i keep spreading this article. I saw the name and there was a big worry. When i was your age. You know Male older younger Years ago there was a cover of the economist had the world currency. No we're going to have a world currency which freaked out a lot of john sliding kind of thing and then just recently. Same magazine had a dovecote. Okay which digital currency but the date between the time between the two covers were thirty three years re months three weeks and three days. They love their numbers and their numerology getting. We're getting so jive just going up. Because i've been screaming this. We've been started. I remember being here at pork fast. And you're up there. You know kind of where we're talking to me is remember is part of the benches there and so on and you got arod bore. He's of the theory. Have roger veer bitcoin cash. You have You know a bunch of guys who the knows vitality buren assyria and erik voorhees of the budget stuff. But you know shapeshifts and you know so. It's these guys. Were explaining to me how this technology was going to change the world. And they were gone. They've they're they're they already know they get you know here we go and you look at it and you could see that it has and it was so obvious why and then. Where's the promise that they made. It was going to be anonymous and find out at pseudo anonymous and i looked up pseudo and it means not so i'm going. Oh you guys talking about you so then as you get further into other alternative currencies and more developmental if follows a principle. What we're looking for is individuals to be in charge of their money individuals to be banked individuals. Not that you have to worry about some central authority. Same whether you can or can't surveilled and we know everything you did from the time of everything especially in our current banking system is least to every war in every corporation every corrupt factor of this country. And the fact that this federal reserve system are currently was literally founded by a bunch of old dudes gained together on a fake duck hunting trip going down in georgia under fake names and finding off the reserve. There was no public outcry about this. No one lives as saying this that the reserve was founded and established and connected to the. I mean i. Is this rhetoric that you get everything. Which of course i heard. I'm old man. Ira but you know the where do you share that. Do you ever community is their improvement because there a bunch of stuff that love to have you participated in thinking kick ass be more involved in trying to talk to people. I'm trying again. I'm here pork. Because i want to build a community and get to know more people. I have a youtube channel. I tried being podcast because he down within three episodes from applicants down. All there's fifty gazillion part. I just talked. you know who i had. That was here. they are marks. Tv's steve's he's sam tripoli's booking guy never sam trump jim Marks is going to be the guy that in my family thinks. i'm crazy dot com. Yeah he's one of the one he has all media united dot com. Which is doing justice very thing that give them a platform and doing an immigrant you they can suck it well. What we're doing and what we were speaking over there about you know talking to loose and so on is we are interplanetary file sharing even know about it but it's a worldwide millions of nodes of. We're internet three point kiss my but they can't center yet. We've been doing this for years. Working on this is a thing from file. Coin that we kinda took it in over that the man that they can suck it you know and it is so freaking over and someone like you you know needs to know that these opportunities exist because the traditional internet the world wide web as as a young activist. When i was i was i. I was probably late twenties early thirties. Just having my fourth child we were You know got exposed enormous corruption by you.

The level lucia on the one that created that logo the go. That's why it's low. Plus i love it. You know that this word. This all started so this. I've been at it. I get it you know the thing. Is that this this whole thing. He is just a sire. It's just you know you could see. I and when i do my lawsuits just i just wanna make him say it are you. You're supposed to go. Yeah well screw you. And we're the government okay. Adjust is owner. The know you lying sack of snot. Because what's the solution. It's you i've been waiting for you all this time. There's a bunch of us here. That's why i'm i'm a horse you know send you're talking to everybody all freaking day every day you know having to come on the show. And they're one we partying or doing donnas is just. It's just amazing that how much finally you guys have been asking the right questions. And before the real problems there were looking for the metrics who's popular how many subscribers can i get. What and then you start finding out you say certain things yet. You're not allowed because you're not supporting the narrative what narrative. Why what's the goal. What they doing and you know certain questions. Why can't i say certain things and it doesn't just start start with internet. Censorship is also happens to be in the public. school system. happens it in private school systems. Now you can't you know there are certain places where you can't wear certain types of clothing and you're told you know we'd all allow that here you know if i walk into a Coffee shop wearing like attack. Asian steph shirt. People probably say. Hey we don't wanna serve you just the way of life that's happened that's happened to me. Yeah wow berkeley. So they love their check very shirts and they pay for money they love them but at a loss they sell them at a loss. Because they're principled. We are made in china as well. Also yeah no. I'm sure they're losing money selling those that that would be wrong if they made money he think not. They're making money well. I'm sure that if they're selling it and they're making money. There can be some capitalist. Or whatever libertarian kids so you'll save brilliant great and it sounds like hey like go off like cells shaka very shirts illustrating like pretend to be marxist and we're not gonna take your money your this is And i've seen some around. You know some guys aware. Some matter of fact. I just took a picture of a guy with a putin shirt. Last night it was awesome. Love for putin is somebody who is a descendant of russian ancestors who is not a good person. He's not a good harbour good people. I know i don't care if they love putin because they love trump because to me. It's like there's it's it's still communists in russia i think people get. It's still very much a dictatorship over there and people like who is friends with trump and i loved trump and trump can do no wrong and therefore kootenai. Yeah we'll putin's also working with promised to got you supportive of trump and the fact that he promised a pardon. Julian assange and you promised to stop. It was going on the middle east to promises for me. Those are the main issues for me. Yeah yeah no i can. I can understand. I tell you. The one thing we used to do. Clinton was just bang on the war. Drums really take me off. I mean i can't stand that woman. She's a demon there have. They are so disappointed that they didn't win. It was amazing when he. I didn't think they were gonna let him. When i knew that he was more popular. And i know from my experience to know struggling around the country trump won this last election. I'll give a shit what they say. It was not freak of what the hell i saw. More trump signs across the country. In the hinterland of men. I never california i mean i mean it's amazing. It was no. I don't know what the hell and that's why i was like you know like i give a crap who says they're president. Rules me doesn't matter anyway. But you know this biden harris thing it just has no there's no there's no concrete evidence legitimacy. Well it's not it's just people. I think that any is any presidents per se. But i'm just gonna say this. I think they let trump win in two thousand sixteen. Because think about it. You can't convince an entire country. The country somehow needs more government power after eight years of obama. You can't convince them was like a black guy. Was president so this country pappy racist but you put trump there and which words you can say listen. There's a racist guy office. You're under a dictatorship. You're under a horrible government. We need to change the government to make the right government aka. Take away more of your rights and get this guy to be in office. I think trump was youth allowed to be president as a way to make people scared. And what a different government aka more government. I don't think they were it. Was the media would give the narrative that they were. Oh no i don't i personally. I think this country has been over. This country's been free since nineteen thirteen. If not that. I think i don't. We actually have the ability to vote for who gets to present even between the two parties system. Preplanned it's a selection election free but that would be wrong about politics. Ernie oh no. The thing is is people think they went. They'll just act like you election fraud. That was what my lawsuit was about the ninth circuit. I challenge forty four election laws. I can see what they were doing. You know and and the thing is when you look at these elections and they'll they'll say well no they wouldn't do that. That would be beyond the pale know. Even even the bad guys wouldn't do that really so they're gonna put up for a vote or risk their millions of dollars their budgets bureaucracy. Their plans or foreign intervention their federal banking military vaccine farman dust complex of they rule. You and they're gonna we're gonna let or we're gonna let ashton vote on it. You know they are. What do you say you care. They wouldn't do that. that'd be wrong. I'm like oh shut up. You know as you're still voting. I got the warmonger or the warmonger at the red tie basically goes down. You know this was know the one thing Trump did not now. We didn't get to a hot shooting war with anybody or a bunch more actually still missile thing and he didn't get us ad out of You know the middle east. And he didn't he ought but least we didn't start another big ass. Oh my god war no. We didn't start a new war but we're still there. Are we still feel hoppy. Fields quote unquote. Poppy fields won't be feels on the middle east. I wanna know and better yet. Why are we still funding israel to fight a war. It's not our own. And why are we still founding guy. I can go into. The thousand is trump people never talk about how trump literally gave more my next to go then. He put it in the wall their beloved wall. They want so badly that will work so well. Okay this this show you. This is where the love lucien came from different my race in two thousand six voted the most popular right their own appreciate it. I'm like you're still voting room for secretary of state and we had this and it was so popular that i knew in august six. Yeah that's how that logo came interesting. So that's You know. I get it so you know i didn't have ernest seen this logo before ron paulos. Who's interesting. it was being used for one. Paul well started no eight. Yeah all started to no no six. Yeah you know for that campaign and It was so it's been around. And yeah. I i think it was appeal saying from back in the day and when we did this it was a still voting thing was voted the most popular sign. The newspaper is really popular. But the revolution thing. I just did that because this was a sticker kit. We had signs but this is a vinyl sticker kit extra white area up there and i go. Yeah put that up. It's my vital. I won't put whatever it blew. So when ron said he was thinking about sort of creating a blue ribbon panel to run in january of oh seven called the confirm. And i really you guys are doing. I talked to the hand. I'll have a vote. I'm not gonna go out and remote precinct committee crap. We started making signs. Central my libertarian. Friends around the country and they were taking pictures of a matt. You'll fox news. Or the army recruiting or in san liberty or some crap like that right. And they were sending you will magnetic tapes back and we made videos. That was first youtube. We put those up now. What you know was interesting. We started freedoms phoenix my website in. Oh five and the reason. We had the idea in ninety six but when video hit the internet. That'll never happen when you to hit. I'm going it's over. They're done now. We get to be the media. So what did they. Until they censor us. Zach and take our information exact. We want information. We want information. This was the number one for six. You know the you know or seven hundred halley the And one thing for a young woman like you to because that was only like alan levin episode or something like that and to see that i love patching mcgill is was watching. Who hell are you at twenty five west this stuff and one thing you have liberal parents this is how you rebel you. Become an anarchist hope. Introduces stuff was what really gets me. Is you have one thousand nine hundred high school ironically. No high school having a nice school anymore high school. You're forced to one year. Did you graduate. Who hasn't fourteen kinda shocked when we don't think it's around our freshman year. We read nineteen four and fahrenheit. Four fifty one thing is interesting to me. No the education system doesn't work because you have kids kind of flip through it right there essays and forget about the next day because they're taking it the reading this book and not taking the information they graduate and they go on to those and call arty kind of conversation. Did you have your high. School was near berkeley. So i was raised in berkeley. Parents were divorced so went to high school where my mom lives small cow town. Just outside of berkley. Though you think to berkeley high school would have nineteen eighty-four signed or positively mean. We're doing that because berkeley was close. You need to read this. I mean you know oh good school. I went who also fairly liberal. I mean it was it. Was you know. Typical bay. Area school And a lot of the kids. I went to high school with didn't really pay attention to the world around them. I was the only kid in my class. Who knew who snowden was was who was on assange was why. Why would you even know how do you do. You know launch time on the internet as a kid an unhealthy amount of time on the internet again. I found alex jones to rule to warcraft forums. Though it are you you know. Okay i just tell you this on a you know one to ten. She's you know and gee track a blonde. You know you're beautiful girl. You're outgoing smile again. And then you're sitting playing warcraft computer. Now man as an athlete's of d club okay. So you're smart. Maybe i guess yeah sure. I've owned player. That helps so i'm sorry. I had blue hair at one point if that helps you still kinda cute blue hair. I play drums in a punk rock band. You know snow be think punk rock mcneese dumb fringe or were they smart like they also into politics because they're all anti-system And we love other people to get involved too. Like i remember. There was one instance in my shoe passes punk rock blue hair trump bang you know blue. Hair anarchy trump. You know. I'm going now and and alex jones. We re blaming alex jones. I think i think part of that. Trump doctrine nation Also i was just thought he was going to stop the wars. I thought he was our one option of beat hillary and stop. The war is an again my first time voting. I fell for that Unfortunately he. But i i think it was a good lesson my books. It's like hey now you now you know there really is no save guy in the world of politics you gotta fight it yourself you know. What did you come to realize all this. You're kinda just an acute thing you hold you at all. I mean people try to push the thing on me like q coin reached out to me for my video. Sponsoring me a few times. And i try. I tried talking to an understanding their perspective the entire time. All i'm thinking is chewing on is literally a sigh up to try to get boomers. Trust like government. That is all its louis. Getting people to trust the government for player out. There is a you know one of my sons. He he was big for a while. And you've got to do the coupon. Oh you don't get because it appealed to launch techie. God's in charge plan is basically saying. Hey trust your governments cross. What's going on no matter what to me. It's sketchy now. Have you ever heard of operation trust. That was part of the you know. The russian revolution is it. Similar to and on the concepts of what happened was when the royals our overthrown in his ours killed and not a stage went whatever. Yeah right so so when this goes on you have the the transition into the proletarian bullshit. Who gives a crap. Yeah so you have. Lending comes in. Well the royals at the time they were operation. Trust the play operation trust. It was like trust a plan. Hold on we got to beat on this. We're gonna get him gonna take but worried about it though rise up yet we're good you'll get your orders and same thing it was to get you to stand down And there there was a male. Whoa what the hell is. So it was stand-down stand by the and which trump even said one time he'll by stand by. It was all woo. You don't react relax it so now. It's getting to where i don't give a shit when anybody says you know i'm not standing down. I'm not going to go out. And do i'm just i just do the klingon disaffiliation turn my bags grill young for all those people. Who are there january. sixth. I mean. Look i i definitely think there were sketchy things about that. But the fact. I feel so sorry for those people honestly because they literally went and stormed the capitol for this guy that they trusted for reasons of my government is better than their governments sort of situation and they've legit thought trump was gonna part in them all. They legit thought that trump was gonna fix things and there was a opened it up and let a man. Companies swan song in people. Sold out there for this politician. Give a crap about them. I mean all the people that got trump elected shows one of the reasons trump was elected. Offline reasons do you think is doing anything for those people know. He's kissing. Charlie kirk spot and charlie kirk was guy. What do you think is gonna is. He gonna run for twenty four kilty again and frankly i hope he doesn't i really don't i supported him and they're going to try to santa's florida. Yeah it's what i heard was to run for governor in california. Possibly the rumor like tolsey but again. I don't like any politicians at all. She just bought a house in california. So the rumor is. You might run for governor. This recall yeah W awesome awesome it again. I don't trust any politician. What one dollars value for me. Well what do you think. I remember john stewart. One time. He goes They go you know. Who do you want to win. Because we just really. We're just looking at the theater of you know not these away so why not funny. It will join far enough. That's joe financing. Everything trump was doing. The democrats are talking about it. He's building the wall. He's sending people still in the middle east but at least trump's twitter with entertaining. What i'm saying you know what it was when we did. I was gonna say this before because we did during the Oh eight and twelve. Aleutian years. With ron paul. We watched all the debates. You know all republican. I think a lot of the democratic debates to throwing popcorn and tv and it was just excuse us the party and donna kelley. So it was. Yeah we were get freaked out by. He get a minute and a half and we love that man code it's So what happened was a lot when the trump thing started a lot of the hardcore ron hall guys. Don't go damn you know The democrats really hate him. The media really hates trump held the republicans. Really hate it. But you know. I felt honestly and fears to system. Is that you've got people like us. Who have these ideas or exactly. The lesser of evil thing is a really gets. The it's like great so we got to choose between corporate or longer or corporal longer with a red tie fantastic solutia saying or what the hell's that me i honestly i wanna just go live off somewhere. On compound raise seven babies. Teach them the weld shoot guns garden and just raise some goats and not deal with any of this serve. You know. that's one thing i. It's one of the presentations that i did today. We're talking about this because this has become a common thing. Yeah people want to You know intentional communities. Well those are called small towns and i- intentional community. I got three questions. What do i have to do. what can't i do. What your conflict resolution and with community you wanna have alongside you to build all that. Well the thing is is do. I have to have something that. I'm subjected to some homeowner. Yeah see the thing is like here. They wanna buy rogers. That's been a thing forever. I'm going all trench when hoa one had you know how by a little. What do i gotta do while.

Because i don't want to be consumed by things they don't show what's the response the people when you say these. I'm sure there's up first time you said this stuff. What's your feedback. What they love it again. I thought all trump supporting people who followed me for a long time would hate everything. I'm saying now is an anarchist. But they're on board with it.

And what do you think. The people are gonna do how they're going to respond. I think respond very angry. I think we're going to start seeing a lot more riots. They were sought. I'm not saying we should riot by start seeing a lot more people fighting back and really getting involved physically mentally and socially and i think the the industry tes resistance is what serves their purposes better in that. They're trying to encourage they want. Yeah i'm more for just disengaging in our out here. I don't feel like i'm going to fix it.

I think we have a difficult time ahead of them. If we are to be prepared for it we must burn. Shed our here without fear. Because i remember i remember that i am here. Not because of the that live before me but the path that lie behind me. I remember that one hundred years. We have fought these machines. After a sensory. I remember that remember more. Declare your independence of mir handcock here. Lancaster new hampshire at porcupine freedom festival. And it's friday. You know so. I mean man. The week has gone by nine him. I'd while we kneel sleep you gotta pace yourself man. You know might be taking a nap but the you know there's a lot of stuff going on in this a large pork faster over three thousand people here in every freaking spots full. It is just amazing. A lot of people have come here for the first time. You are the autonomy group from richard grove and lisa murkowski's Of luke luke. He did richard is his father. So this is been a lot of fun and when his autonomy class that he has Five classes which means on hundreds of people on a lot. you know. there's a lot of people that are here. And when he said he was coming here he was putting on the show. They got up like a restaurant they got. You know a rave a tent of pres de nan. He did not waste on so He's been here a few times. It took years to me to brow. Beat the crap out to get him to come the first time and now he's in and he's he's rock and roll and i knew that he had a lot of fans and the first time that he had come Just showing them the sunday before he even started and it was at night at a show showing the where things were be for that. We're staying off site and i had to come early the next day and i want to show him where it was as we were talking people recognize. My voice came over said yo. What's up one of the guys goes. Hey you know i I know your voice. I listened to you that time you interviewed richard grove on big richer grow fan. They drove up from florida twenty seven hours and they had just finished richard grove. Twenty-three our podcast on the new order or something and just finished. When they aren't the car walked like thirty yards over to us. And i go. Well richard right there bone marrow in the dirty anymore. He and his entourage going around. And i told him he had supporters here in richardson. I set it up years like you said no no way. It is man so he was enamored from the beginning. They got a lot of great interviews that year and he saw an opportunity for these different festivals to Have you guys come and experiences different events and port fast. I'm sure you guys have gone to other events and so on percocet county unique a little different you thank you know. I mean what what what. What's your example. There's no we're going to talk to. We had lisa manfredi member eighty lisa manfredini. We got to interview her yesterday. That was awesome. A lot of foam that mike delaney is here. We're gonna start off with mike morales. He's an tom. Tommy season five graduate. But the one thing that i wanted to talk to him about he was a part of the instituting of the obstacle course. Because you have a a a lot of people it's popular course. They want to go in. But they don't wanna waste time. They've gotta be talking everybody and interviewing and so there had to be some mechanism by which you trimmed down. Who is really a good candidate to go through the autonomy course and i wanted to talk to mike about yet. Something formulated natalie. Tell us about the obstacle course. Can you share with the audience. What that's about what they can expect when they go to try and sign up for the class. Yes so i got in right bef- right after they started using obstacle course but i had a chance to review it. I just started in season. Five and the asked students do the afternoons to look through it to You know to to get a sense of what it's like kind of debate attested. And it's it's over four hours and in one sense it's a summary of Or it's an overview of what autonomies avow. But it's deliberately long because if anyone's familiar with some of richard's content. It's long as podcasts. Along if you watch grand theft world very long broadcast and the lectures long autonomy to friday nights there live lectures the records. You can watch them later but it can go three four five hours late into the night and it takes the kind of person who is ready for that long format deep dive into content to really appreciate the program and so the obstacle course is as you said. It's to filter and prepare people in advance for the type. Of course they're signing up for so the obstacle course is a requirement to even do the rest of it but the obstacle course is charged for that now. Now that's free. If you wanna you wanna go value in that deeper deeper deeper deeper dive you gotta you gotta pay. You know. you're you're gonna commit you know so that and the people that commit you know. By the time they go through the obstacle course and they're committing. You're already dealing with a quality individual that wants to make sure they know what's up while it's important to to richard in folks that run autonomy to have A quality community and so not. Anybody is just going to be able to come in it. It takes a special person who's ready to go through that type of content who are going to fit within the basic principles of autonomy. You're going to be a good fit with the community and so people are checking out autonomy to see if it's right for them but they're also checking out the student the the applicant to see if they're gonna be a good fit for the community as well 'cause which is very protective of that community. You don't much defense as he have to give you an example what we do on our declare your independence so they understand cod kilogram group i didn't want it to get real big right off the bat. You wanted to have good quality. They get at their fans of and l. to begin with so when someone else new comes in they start doing their spam. They're going to explain it to you about and hugh flatter or whatever you know these guys are now not here man. Ernie make them go away. You know and i don't have to really do that much. Because there are pounded on somebody that is trying to take advantage of the community. And how open is the participation that only participants graduates. Is you go to discord. Can anybody come in conversion. You guys were no. I mean only students are allowed in the discord students and graduates. So once you sign up for tani. It's it's forever in the sense that you like. I've graduated now. I just graduated last month. But i can go back and watch the season six lectures. I can continue to participate on the discord channels. In fact once you graduate or more channels that open up with community members where you can in around you get the secret club handshake after you get done well. So there's the my channels been there's also more content because connected with autonomies university of reason where there are different courses with set skills. There's logic course. There's a financial course and some of those. You won't get to see until you graduate the idea being if you provide too much upfront. People when they get started it becomes overwhelming and distracting right. There's the core curriculum. Need to go through this core curriculum is how many hours were probably you think. Well it's like. I said it's two three four hours of lecture on friday night then. How many friday nights. Every friday night for twelve weeks and then there's a a. after iq a with richer which is one of the reasons. Why signed up for this or my god. So you're talking. This is a great way to though. Then there's then there's there's a saturdays they do what they call the do. It live podcast. Were it's part of the exercises for students to try things out and discuss what's been going on in a ton of me for the past weeks. People participate in that sunday. There's another life cuna for those who couldn't catch the for me on the east coast q. And a. might happen at two or three m. f. I'm not up for that. I could catch on sunday afternoon for another. Qna and so and then there is other material that one can go through an exercise during exercise. But what you're saying is richard doesn't have any other life is what you're saying right. Just put a lot into this in advance and it really is surprising and impressive to me that he decided to do a live lecture. Because you could have just recorded at once and hit play and then just show up for the qna So the fact that he he goes through the slides live every single. Time is is impressive. Because it's news stuff happened this morning. That's neon freaking told you so go through the same lydon's ear happened again yesterday. I mean you know that kind of thing richard. And that's one thing we were talking. You know i. We were at a party. Said we're talking about. Yeah you guys should come on. And we'll we'll talk about the class. Because i was really interested in obstacle course it. It's like five hours of. Oh my gosh four hours just to just to even qualify to be able to even sign up. No no then you got interview. Oh isn't that interesting. Our stay interview with lisa. Then maybe okay. You know. And but i like this. I said on. Do you think you know. Richard might wanna just hang out the background. And maybe he'd comment or something like that. I go well. Should we have richard here. No now i've gone blue. That was a little quick draw. Their i mean damn you. Don't take to counter something you know and it's probably true you know that it'd be better. You know talk about richard behind his back. But you know i i just. I thought that was and i go. Why was that so quick. Draw that because she is just the kind of person that wants to have. Her voice heard not shy about it. There's gonna give her expression and do it which kind of drew her to the community. It seems like oh. I would say about me or lease is graduate if we needed him at the babysitter. It's supposed to be autonomy. Be able to do this on our own. Nose and etiquette thing to count. She's all about etiquette. What was going to get the counts but the The same it's just there but And richard scott something about richard. He's cellcom you need. Anybody needs to be the accolades you know. He's get but down and that's what you know. I really draw. i remember. I used to give him a lot of crap. I'm going yeah. Yeah yeah okay. Get it now. What now what. now what. now what. Now what will autonomy became the now. This is not just sharing the information. It's creating you know a a tool mechanism for a bunch of people to create their own content. Their own voice their own to promote the same thing which is what this atonomy. How would you describe it to someone. That'd be interested in an up in nineteen skills. Well i mean it's that's part of it. The nineteenth skills is is is one of the things that they introduced that you don't learn in school is one of those things that you could get or and it's also an obstacle course. But the way i would describe atonomy to people who don't know what it is is that i i have three. I made his three things. That i remember when i try to tell people. There's the curriculum which is a lot of the content of the lecture which is very valuable and the initial reason why. I even looked into this because i known richard groves work and i thought if he's putting this together i know how he is. The researcher is solid. I'll be very interested to hear what he said. Same time i feel like a lot of stuff is out there. He can't reinvent the wheel completely So it's just really great content. You know maybe right. Maybe but it's not not cheap and it's a commitment so you know what else is there and there is complexity triggered. Which are the exercises. Where they'll he'll have students interview each other or do a live podcast. They haven't done them. He put students in a in a position to try something and fail. But it's still safe because it's part of the community and it's a real exercise. It's not book learning now. You have to perform and the third part which for me is the biggest pieces the most value autonomies the community because these are free minded people from around the world Together on dischord interacting with each other. And it's one of the reasons why i came to. This is my first pork fest. Is the meat in real life as well and so these are people that were formed friendships with some people have business relationships with each other or work on projects and so what is atonomy. Well it is a community of freedom minded people who are trying to better themselves undoing. The damage done by public school. Learning real practical skills to succeed in life in both business and personal performances and to build community were or the skill well as put this way when he does these hours and hours of presentations on. What underwater basket weaving. Was he talking about well. I don't wanna give too much away. But i'll say that that's what the obstacle course does cover general way But i wanted to ask you one thousand nine skills. They don't teach when school. I wanted to know why nineteen. Yeah well i i. We talked over lunch. I heard some of your story. I didn't hear from the time you were born until you. You had your red till moment or whatever. What were some of the things that you think. They didn't teach you in school that you had where you can anything you know. What did they teach you. I had a really good experience in high school. I you know. I'm the front based red-headed stepchild kind of thing you know you're you know you only have so much white privilege when you're a ginger but the You know i. I was had a lot of good friends you know that were you know way more educated and nicer or they were very tolerant of me and And i'm not very tactful. You know and. I didn't have a lot of etiquette skills. You know so it was I had really quality good friends. And i was always looking to better myself. I just wanted to be like anybody else. You wanna be. You know heard you wanna be like you want to be part of the group or whatever but then what group and a lot of times you would be in a group that he didn't really want to be part of but i had really good friends and they they were nice and and it's time for declare your independence with ernest handcock. Believe me when. I say we have a difficult time ahead of them but if we are to be prepared for it we must birth shed our without fear because i remember i remember that i am here. Not because of the past that lies before me but because of the path that lie behind me i remember that one hundred years we upon these machines and after a sense i remember that built remember so i learned a lot there and i wanted to share. You know. I wanted to know the truth that they i was always the why guy. Why am i doing. Why did you make and that was probably came from my father's oxidants of man. I don't like being told what to do. And that would but he didn't really explain it. He wasn't Burst in philosophy. Or had anything so i was like libertarian mindset before i even heard the word and i remember this. This is a really good. What really gave me a disillusionment with a system. I graduated high school in seventy nine and dowers right during a lot of affirmative action. And so on so. I didn't because i wasn't a minority. I didn't qualify for any aid. Anything and my parents. Although they had some resources they weren't rich but they were like a job. You know you got so. I did for a year and saved up to go to arizona. State university is there a space engineering. I really was interested. Now we cover a lot of that tack and stuff and all our pirates near ships and so s really. Just my passion of what i really wanted to do. But i don't have the you know the the physics and understanding other than i know you can do. Just do it. you know so. It was My first year in college arizona. State university i take Philosophy one oh one. I yelled at me life. Whatever the hell is gonna go do that. And the first paper that was assigned was a situation to where they were explaining utilitarianism you rule utilitarianism deontology. Which is I'm sorry the intelligence ethics. Yeah yeah will point that they were making was that you have a describe a situation to where you For the greater good of everybody you have to violate someone's individual rights kinda thing which is really what they were going for. You know. we can't be this principle religious. John and this. Is you know this is early eighties and you could tell. They were already structure the narrative. They're hitting it on at the university. And i was in the class of man they want. Explain it to you and asia. She got three hundred people in a big giant brecon classroom already. You know and So i took the role and this isn't a time. We don't negotiate with terrorists. we never young pushed. You find out later. They did but you know don't and it just made me think i'm going you know It seems to me that the most benefit for the most people the utilitarian A result is the protection of individual rights. You don't have to violate someone's right. So you can serve the greater good of the collective that is serving the greater good by protection individual rights. That was the whole point. You know the promise of the declaration of independence. I wrote a paper going. Yeah i can give you the utilitarian argument for the support of individual rights. Well i just thought you know it's an intellectual exercise. And i put my name in the right place and i filled out the form right and i typed it up where you can read it and i spent most of the words right. I mean you know i. i heard it in d. And i go for a warrant unit repeat the narrative right exactly and that was when the rose came off says the stamp man that day were indoctrinating. Me and i thought that i left highschool which was a pretty good school. I had a good experience. Good teachers there. But i thought i was going to be an adult. I was gonna get express myself. We were going to have a debate. We're gonna. I was always a interactive in the class. You know i. I'm just like man ooh argument and they go no you didn't you chose poorly and i'm like you sons a bitches now. Of course i didn't even get the professor. It was a graduate student. That right. that's right. You know and i'm going to upon you know. This is what i'm paying for with my money. I saved up for your for you guys to doctrine. Eight me more and a saint. Oh am i in class. y- ebonics. They were sitting there teaching he. That's when that started. And i'm going to help them. I had you know shows. The bloom is off. And i eventually wound up. You paid for that. I paid for it and i eventually. I said i'm good and i went. You know on the road. I went to new york city. I was helping people. I started working in the yada yada yada in and then i got married and so they didn't teach you much other than pride to condition you for compliance. Now what is it that when you got out there when you started really coming into who you are today. What is it that you realize. They didn't teach me. I wish they taught and everything business. Pnl's profit loss by supply and demand supply and demand was kinda like that evil capitalist system. That they're doing it wrong. And we got a better way of you know we got scientists to tell you how much toilet paper we need to make a five year plan for toilet paper you know and That's one thing the venus project you know these guys that you know they did the zeitgeist and they kind of took it over and it took me a long time find. Get somebody from new york. Come on tell me about it and the only question i had as i go okay. So so who decides how much toilet papers made no. It's time to be on a stroke dash form of whatever algorithm. Well so if they say something to make do they have to make the toilet paper i can. I choose to make saw meltzer. I've got see they didn't have an answer because there wasn't an answer their answer was somebody else needs to tell you what to do. Now there is no free market. Spontaneous ideas is no faith in freedom for you monday. Answer to any question. It was some controlled. Somebody tells you what to do. So i could see it was not necessarily could be whatever ism collectivism in what reform state ism communism socialism fascism china's m. russia's whatever ism democracy is a miami. Whatever the hell is right. Is that the isn't that they were supporting. Was you not being charged that your life was subject to somebody else's committee or something and that right there. I'm just going. That is not what made america so powerful. It was the individuals acting in their own self interest without violating someone else's pursuit of happiness in their own self interest. And i go down his so simple. Which is what. I've tried to apply. And i've been the yield the grandpa the movement. You know now. I used to be the kid. I was a kid until i was four. And then now i'm not so i'm going. What works is you. Just leave me alone you. That's what works in a structure of you're allowed to know any protection that we have is a government or a body or whatever is to protect you do in that. Which is i had. Dot crosby amish. The owner of the campground you know today and we go golfing every year. And we always do a show and you'll have crosby. I'm not like the old guy we look at these kids band. You know what it is. I really get to ask them. Okay how many clipboards visage this year. You know what would the man have to say. And he has been the protection of this place. Yoga has been years. The conflict roll yank of opt. We're going to go see what's up and take videotape. Everybody or where. The health inspectors has got permits for doing whatever revenue guys of. who's paying their. You know yada yada yada. And he's like no one shall pass us office. You don't get inside. So who's that in the country. That was supposed to be the guy out. There is the governor supposed to be crosby. That was their goal. That was their point that was her chartered. That was the idea. They're so far away from that. So what richard does and autonomy. I'm wondering if he's given justification for that. He's chastise in organizations that do that. He's preparing you for operation in an environment like that. So what does he adding that people that go and take the class or missing so you say How does he prepare people and you talked about as an example of this campground we have these different authorities coming in and that's what public school universities condition you to do when the authority of whatever department comes in. You're supposed to do what you're told. Because they're the authority rights fallacy of appeal to authority in condition to comply with that. And so what. Richard teaches Instead of like the school system university system of what to think he teaches you wide. Think and how to think and so may not be as you mentioned. Specific skills didn't teach in school but what about broader mindsets Of one of the things to talk about as an attitude of gratitude or not having a scarcity mindset of not having learned helplessness that they teach us in school to be helpless by design so that we have to go to the government or to the agent. so he's out there their techniques or what. They've been doing well more. Not so much outing their techniques. It's deconditioning people who've gone through that process so that you're a better critical thinker and how you think but you're also more thoughtful about wire thinking you're have a mindset shift because if if you went through that system and you were a model student you get you make your day right and you get through that in some. What kind of person comes out of that. It's the person that does what they're told that stays in their lane. And you think about it. Because i always ask why everybody your first one that counted. You know drill down on my three-year-old memory and you know my father was definitely of the mindset that he can just do it himself the all stop. He was not you know that. Want anybody telling them what to do. But they. But then i got exposed to. You definitely wanted to tell other people what to do. It was a kind of authoritarian so it was like a competition thing and he became a deputy. Sheriff you've got bad in a gun. Then he was like a city councilman. And i'm going man. They gave this guy a badge and a gun. And i know how or terry neile holy crap. I definitely don't want that so when people give me accolades guys do the shirt thing and everything. I take two ads out. Stars van unlike new. Nude you get all big ended on that. Because i know. I'm not the one you know. And that's what makes me. The obi wan is freaking no eight to one so it's He shirts corrupt. I'm sorry power corrupts t shirts corrupt. Absolutely go to keep that in mind. We got a little secret thing here. You know i i go to lucrative house could do it just get under chaps. You know i go. So what did you think when you saw that shirt. He goes well. I go of course i can't wear it. He goes all while on my picture on allied. I'd wear so we're sitting here. Oh yeah we're getting a luke. Now we're going to do because you know you know Lucrative hausky and and luke adding that the same name when my god skylar. Now we're we're gonna have some fun with it because you know ill pip the crap out of it. It'll be wearing that's for sure so it's just At fortunately i of the mindset you know. I don't have a whole lot skeletons. Mostly because there was an internet back when i was younger but the You can't previous gallons iraq you know but the But definitely you can understand that. No one is perfect knowledge of anyone else's pursuit of happiness. You can't it's you. Need to provide provide a framework by which everybody to pursue their own happiness as long as it doesn't violate somebody else's pursuit and that is why. This show's called declare your independence. It was so crystal clear to me and the last paragraph in the declaration therefore we must acquiesce necessity. You're making us do this. You're forcing us to no in in war whole ges enemies and peace friends. You know that kind of thing. It was a beautiful document. And it's never emphasized and the one time it was used as a legal document was in the enabling act for arizona where they said in when you do your state it has to be republican form and it can't violate the the letter or the spirit of the constitution or the declaration of independence and i use that in a case one time and i want all you as a violate. The big time is and access lamamra. They didn't like that one little bit. And i could see that that is what's challenging the narrative and the education and the exposure. You get to what richard is doing. Because i know richard without even going through autonomy. I know he's not he's giving you some life. Skills is that is the empowerment be able to morally justify share with other people the purpose of if you're going to even have a government and what responsibility you have to yourself and your loved ones your family your community your friends and that is what. They're not teaching school. Bats what they intentionally counter in school. It is a dare program. You need vernon dad you know. And as all this social justice whatever's going on and you have chinese older. Chinese woman goes before a county supervisor meeting and says look. We've been through this before. This is what happened in china. This was a cultural revolution. This was you know in russia. This is giving we. We've seen this. We know where this goes out of this. You know they know you know this is what's happening so we have to have defense and i need to know for the people out there thinking of They they need something who are the people that the all you guys seem like rational successful i got a job Individuals that know leaders in your own right. You know what was missing that you needed a tony. The community is the number one is the number one. And that's why i said can felt alone. No i thought. I felt alone although i feel isolated being in massachusetts frigging alone. You heard you heard lisa story yesterday. She was she was successful. Going into atonomy. You can be someone who doesn't have these skills. I was home schooled. So i wasn't as program is other people. Write some we go through john. Taylor gatos The greatest history lesson interview that he does and some of the history of of public education and for some people that was new. I've read book so it wasn't new for me. It's still good to hear and so Different aspects are gonna hit people at different levels If if someone is listening to a show called declare your independence religiously. They probably going to be open to some of these ideas already. The course is a ton of money. And that's why i say there's three parts of this course that have a lot of value and it just depends on each person which part gives you more value if you know all this stuff already if you've read all these books on self improvement Practical business skills the history of all the bad stuff and what you know the good things. Are you know the you know the curriculum right. But maybe you have a hard time interviewing maybe have a hard time Talking live in dealing with things not working right and you get nervous while there are exercises for that. So there exercises for practical performance skills that some people value and may need and then there's the community which is so invaluable. You meet somebody like Lisa like mike people from different seasons the same season and you know one person could be a value to me. That may not be to another person it. It just depends on where you are in life. What you're doing this brings up a point. We'll get to you. Mike a little bit you get on the mic man. You know one of the things. That's interesting to me is A lot of you have families. You know you're part of the family or do they start bringing in their lives and and the first question people that are in an autonomy. How many of them are married and even have kids is it one of the criteria not criteria one of the traits. Yeah your love married and have kids now. One of the traces at they're not you most of the people single. Yeah we doesn't have kids isn't married. I have kids. i'm not married. There are people who marry who don't have kids or people who are married. There's not really a a lumping. The type of person that comes in ours marital status or anything. No some people Spouses come in same time. Sometimes they come in different seasons or sometimes they never a times. This one yeah And about children. How how young you man. My thirteen year old kid needs this. I'll pay for that fort while my fourteen year old son is here right now at pork fest and he would sit near me sometimes when i would listen to a lecture And he's met some of the people in atonomy and i can learn some of these passing him. But i if if i if i didn't do it or if i were doing it at the same time it would be also good for him. I don't know of anybody that young and tommy But i know lisa mentioned yesterday. Somebody who is seventeen as young as seventeen being in there and at the very least the parents can get the information. They understand if their kids are in public school. What's being done to them. Then the children will still benefit from that. Yeah i can see an offshoot of you guys Kind of a homeschooling autonomy for you know preteen or i mean you know because i i know there's a lot of appreciation for what you guys are learning. I even more appreciative. I didn't have learned to crap to begin with. I mean only crap. You're gonna wait till i'm twenty two. You could save me when i was thirteen. You're freaking evil people for letting me be indoctrinated by the man i mean you have to start with the parents because you're not gonna get twelve year olds or sign up for this before the parent understands it. Know some twelve year olds. But you know you're you're probably right but there's I've seen the kids grow up here. I there's people after his own eight that makes it like twelve thirteen years. I've been coming here. Well a kid that was eight years old at thirteen years of that. You know we're we're talking. What twenty one years old. James bab is daughters. Violent and i'm sorry dorothy. Yeah thank you god. He's gonna kill me if she was going to shoot me. If i don't remember beyond violent and dorothy they were children fell in magnets three d. printed. With whatever you know poor your pines on him and stop. They win all kinds of words and they'd make all kinds of money and now they're freaking got boyfriends and driving and doing whatever and They grew up with this and they can't wait to come back for fest every year. So it's not like the youth dope benefit from it because the first thing that they do. Here's a teach. These kids entrepreneur skills of walking dogs and mpn trash and pass out fliers that we have many may bank on me. You know so there. I don't think it's too young man. You're saying they didn't teach you well. Then who does you know so are is that one of the common traits is data lot autonomy or home schoolers. No no not at all the from from all lot. Five view most are not home schoolers. So what is the commonality somebody saw. There's gonna be a comments on commonality. Is that there are people who are going to abide by the basic rules of masters. No slaves be excellent to each other right those. Those are the rules. Bill and ted fans in one sense. Yeah and And they are. They are going to be prepared to commit to to do. The work of long lectures. They're going to be looking for other freedom minded individuals and should be this what he does a long lecture. There's mandates election. just shut up and you're muted. Yeah now yeah and then there's a qna and you can you can ask them whatever you want. How many people are alive on these things. Usually well most see it depends on where you are in the world and to do the live lecture but you can watch the recorded version later but i mean live at one thirty forty on a on on on maybe a late evening and then more on the sunday. Qna which could be. Does anybody have a question now. Now some people speak up right away. Some people take weeks. Some people never shied away right away. I wasn't there. She sees one though already know. Lisa's right away. It's quick grow. So i just you know this is. This is good information. I think it's something that people need to know how this what they're getting and And it's interesting that they you know. That's what prompted me to talk to you. Because i wanted to hear about the the Ox obstacle course that man. This is what you get. It's a five hour introduction for free and if you want more of this you gotta pay and her like. Maybe i don't but a lot of people do. But i'm going to spoil it because the obstacle course only covers that one c of curriculum when you go through the obstacle course you you get an overview of the program but you all you really get to. Experience is what it's like to watch some videos. I think the longest. It's a different segments within the obstacle course the longest is forty five minutes and they have different themes totaling over four hours. And so that gives you a taste of what it's like to go through a four hour thing but it doesn't give you a sense of the community and it doesn't give you a sense of what it's like the participate in the exercises and for me when i was on my blueprint call with lisa trying to find out whether or not i wanted to sign up for atonomy. I was already knew. Richard with put together a good program and i knew this stuff would be good and i thought maybe i'd already heard half of it but it was really this aspect of community that stole me. That's the thing that i wanna. I wanna bring in eller. Mike here you guys go. Is there something else you wanted to be one more thing. I'll just add so the communities. What sold me and the thing. That surprised me was the interviews and the dialogue. Because you get in there and you start talking to students and you can have one on one conversations. You can have a structured interview three four interview and then you can have four five six people in a in a video chat all at the same time all students. Richard isn't there. he's he's just like an assignment that you haven't each other assignment and some of it is spontaneous and that's the thing that i was really amazed about and i asked richard.

Be the type of person that you know someone would want to you know. Shoot around a golf with and You know that's one of. That's probably the sec. I break it up into four different sections That autonomy brings you through the first one is to on school. You out of the head trash. That you are programmed with in schools step two is then how to interact with people with integrity Step three is the sales because everything sales. You know whether you're trying to flirt with women or trying to bring a client on a round of golf to sell your wares you know it's all sales and then the fourth segment of it is the marketing you know you. You have a good idea. You need to be able to market to people If you wanna a whiff rate the idea although product i i'm i still am not getting as a potential student of autonomy. I'm still not getting. What the hell. Richard talks about for fifty freakin hour. I have up on on the definition of. Because i knew her. So independence or freedom as of the will of one's actions right the conditions of autonomy of being autonomous self-governing governing the right of self governance three a self governing governing community. Here we are four fest. Were surrounded by freedom loving individuals who want to spread these ideas one of the things that he talks about in one of the lectures in comes. I think from confucius as you know a lot of people wanna change the government. A lot of people want to change the government will confucius said if you want to change the government right. You need to understand the state to understand the state you need to understand. The community understand the community. You need to understand the family to understand the family. You need to understand yourself once you gain autonomy over yourself. You can influence the family. You can control your family. You can influence the community. You can influence the state you know what i mean so You know the nineteen skills that we're talking about is about bringing it into yourself so that you can you know everybody claims they want self-governance but then they subscribe to these systems. We don't want to subscribe to systems. We wanna make our own systems. You know we wanna make our own community. You wanna make our own businesses and we wanted us when i see a lot of businesses coming out of autonomy as if that is the The mission everybody wanted to have their own bizzare. It's a it's a physical make money and you know be successful in whatever criteria because there's one thing that was interesting about a conversation with lisa i mean she had already reached the pinnacle of you know whatever profession she was and she already doubt. Never something else. That was missing tonight. Start here and its community a lot especially over this last year. That probably drove a lot of people that you know looking for community but it's So what do you think it is that this urs that was missing. Is it just life skills yet at school was at the indoctrination. You have to overcome What was it. so let's juxtapose. What autonomy is to sort of other sales classes. I mean you have people like dan locked or brand card. Don't you know what i mean. You know they'll tell delta. Just really good skills. That can be really helpful but a week after that. Dan lock doesn't give a shit about you. Know how it's going now. You know what i mean. He's there to teach the course and move on and recruit more people in autonomy. You have this community of people. You have the discord server so you have sort of like a. I hate to use the term safe space but a safe space to sort of put ideas out there and bounce off other people who are going to give you honest feedback you know. And that's an. I think that's the magic of autonomy is. You're getting the lectures you. You know you're getting the access to rich in that's worth its weight in gold but you're getting taxes to a filtered group of who are like minded in are all trying to move in the right direction individual liberty also. Has there been any trolls. Or you got dan and your excommunicate. Yeah no you're talking control right now. All i do is charlie's people now i haven't bumped into anyone who's behaved inappropriately in this is what's fascinating because you know we were talking about groups earlier you know what i mean. I don't know what was the the law you talking about. It always deteriorates to trying to claim a leadership hierarchy. It's kind audit just hasn't really developed like that that people who become leaders and the people who have like the great ideas you know very such a diverse group of people. There's so many categories for someone to be a leader in. I want to talk to lisa real quick before we go to the next gas but Is there anything other web page or a project. You wanted to pimp or anything you're working on get autonomy and get me dot info way. The question under. I get to start talking mike doping. What are you going to say. Also there's dead air on my show. Is that what you're telling me that's why it's your fault now waiting on you now. I thought i'd go go. I think we realized often that we all have unlimited potential and that that doesn't mean anything and again. This is something. My brother taught me in my dating life while there comes a brother. Yeah i gotta bring this up. I wanna be your brother because the whole time i'm going you know. Who is your coach. Your teacher your mentor. Your employer your parents your grandparents. Your uncle yield whatever that they made you and she's like well and it goes like an hour for my brother. My brother and my sorry. I didn't say brother in their holy crap. Rather we wanna talk to you okay. Holy wall their. Mike's he's a my so with pennzoil is eating less. You're not an action. You could sit there and do absolutely jack with your life all day long or can be in motion and i think autonomy helps people do is actually started taking steps into that unknown territory because you can live in the world that you know and stay in that little boxer life or you can go into the unknown and really pushed herself. And that's where magic happened. Laurie missing that. You've got. I mean when we talked about it before and you were saying the community had a big impact on it and everything but you know you were successful in your sales career with you. Know high in lab equipment and commission of. I did all right by the time. I'm thirty. I'm you know attractive. Powerful young woman nets kicking ass. And you know and i might even have to learn how to play golf. I mean you know whatever so but then. You're you're not satisfied. You did challenge yourself. You're you're doing Outdoor activity or parachuting. You're doing funky. Whatever the hell hang gliding vibe challenging. I'm still not satisfied. So then you you you your brother. was influential. Your brother. your brother your brother. You know influential in being big brother got taken you to different answer pointing out different things that you would research and i sent you down l. This libertarian self responsibility path of whatever but what was it that and now that you went through it and we thank bobby here but now that you actually did it and you look back. What was that thing. That was missing that you got out of autonomy. Well the thing. That i out of all tommy was community. I've made some of the best friends on my life there. But i just didn't have people around. What state were you living. Acids okay whatever. Yeah probably half show you know on the ones that anybody knew there that you can just really have a close friendship. Relationship moved to thinking that. I would have a whole lot of friends because there's a whole lot of smart people and they were but they are really good at following directions following orders doing what they were told. They weren't really good at thinking and trying things that were sort of. Outside of the north. Just couldn't click with a group that was you know your intellectual and philosophical abilities. Yeah i was. I was not understood. I was this weird anomaly. And i think i still have this idea that there was success in in something right like. You're supposed to do a vertical. My my brother was a software engineer. That's that's a desirable thing. Because it's a very clear the path that you're on and i was a generalist i i was always told not to be a jack of all trades master of none but that's who i am and that now i consider to have range but i got into sales and i really excelled there and i liked it but it felt like i was a failure and someone in my life. My brother mentioned. He always said that. Sales the most important thing that i have like. That's the thing that i bring to the table and you can do that anywhere and hi. Deborah recognize that as a value until he's beat it into my head. I'm sure richard meade it in your head to head. The lessons beat their first and they were reinforced. You ban that that that part on your heads raw del you know this is It's interesting to see someone that is. What would you think would get the. What kind of person would get the most out of. It isn't troubled teenagers a drug addict as you know. Just the unhappy dissatisfied loner in the basement. Coding of crypto geek of is it. Everybody i mean. Is there a market that you guys are tapping more that you get more responser success out of that another will lose your market. I think it's people that haven't necessarily found their place in the world and don't recognize their value because we all have value. But we have been told. We're not enough and so it's just coming into the community having people pull out who you are and what you're good at and what you can do with it. I think something that people realize. I saw the obstacle course gets you to me. You have to call me. So that's either the punishment of the reward. I don't know. But what i hear often is that people are working some job this w. two jobs that they hate and they want to have their own business and we tease that out a little. Because it's not that they it's the why. Why do you aren't that. It's often not that. They want their own businesses. That they don't want the thing that they have. Currently they wants more control and more autonomy and not pushed around but they don't necessarily know what having your own business means like work. Then do that. It's doing everything i mean. Sometimes people build a business and then create their own minimum wage job. So it's it's enlightening them to. What does this look like an wire here. What is it that you're trying to accomplish. Let's put you down that path and we might have to bounce around pivot a little bit. But we're gonna fail forward but we need to keep moving and the success rate of because Richard only been doing this a couple years or something. How long has it been doing this. And the analysis eighteen so it's And of course we're anything richard. Does i promote whatever pace. But the and. I didn't really understand. He kept him bite he may. I am on the list. It's always go to the discord. It's a sunday meeting. Got y'all come on. Come on. I i heard on the list before. Yes a question wondering the same. Yeah me to only go in. Just listen to. I get to talk am i supposed to dominate the conversation. Because i mean you know. I don't know maybe i go rich. I don't think you want me on your list. I'm not sure you sure you want me to come in. I know i will have my opinion and But after meeting lease. I guess you know hell. I'd be a wallflower so you know you know so. I guess i feel more comfortable if you're there and but you know how are the discords run. You know what happens. Is there a framework. Is it just an his audio's chad. I mean how does it work. We have Text video and audio so your preference on the same conversation or separate. It's different channels. You can meet in different areas It's broken on my season so all the active stuff will be in the active season. And then once you graduate you are entitled to be part of the coolish orchard this Richard and the team as we went we kind of updated things. But which class were you in the end of one two season when really so. You're you're early not my brother. It was not your slacker. Earn another thought too about the parents thing and like should should kids do it and yes should we have something for kids. Yes i do think there are a lot of people working on that. But i think part of this is getting to the people that have not had children yet so that when they have children they now are in a better have a better framework for raising educating wants to stand out and at that has good and be like a lot of churches or a counselor organizations or something like that in their community. They'll want their kids or people. Like i went to some mandatory whatever to get married in the church that i one class of whatever right and so i see some benefits in that. But i'm really as i as a rampant apparent and homeschool him. I'd really like to prevent them. Having against six you it would be awesome to have some kind of a boot camp. It would be a kid's autonomy here at pork vest next year. Because they do that. That's the first thing they do with these kids. Show you how to go out there and mesa money you'll be sales so would you first get here. You know it's a you know. Some people start arriving on the previous weekend monday. You got every freaking ten year old kid coming up and you know offering his services for something know you need your you'll flip flop shined or something i mean you know. There's always something. And then we all buy everything they come up with their everybody's absolutely you know they. They just yelled. I got picked tales. Give me money. So i never saw a white girl and suburban jersey shore so i never had a group that identified west as i grew up. I felt like i was looking for community and couldn't find it. I was like what could that have been in my life. And the only thing i could come with the girl scouts. I might goal scout gold award. Nobody knows what that is. But it's it's like the eagle scout for girls. And so i went all the way and girl scouts of or she did like paul deal. The girl scouts and i was like hey. I would like to teach sales and entrepreneurship two girls. Because i feel like no. Let's not the narrative they're like. We have cookie academy we do sales. We have cookie academy. I was like first off. Your teaching girls would be managers because they say ma. I want this badge. Go to work and sell this many bar for me. So they're not even or they go to their neighbors and they look up with these cute is and they say is and they just buy it so when they get out in the real world and they try to sell something like hey you wanna buy this thing and the client says no. They don't know what to do because they've never experienced that. It's always just been like. Yeah of course. I'll buy your cookies cute. And so and i was like in. Most cookies are junk like the ingredients. I would never eat those. I just saw a movie. Your video were one girl. Trying to advocate for gmo Eliminate the cookie is just. They just really shut down. Shut me down. So i question them i was like. Why would you have girl sell something like that. And she said because it's a billion dollar industry for me. And i was like. What lesson are you teaching there. Yeah yeah he's one thing. I i've been encouraging. I finally hopefully one of the Really respected afc activists here. That's moved back to new hampshire is encouraging that you know to be a good neighbor to sell the free state project to sell the philosophy and that kind of thing. It always has to start with a k. I got all you need to do is just you know sponsor the local little league teams if you had to enter kiss. Every single teams a pirate team the pirates versus the pirates of the weird pirates pirates of the berlin pirates. You know and and and you you get in their t shirts and you helping you. You always got know. Refunding crypto to go get the pizza and ice cream. Or are you kidding me. Tell me how this is not going to be the best marketing thing for selling it so it's just I i really emphasize the kids. Because i know what kind of impact hat on my kids that had an impact on my grandkids. That's going to be. I mean it is a thing and it gets avoided way too much. And that's why i was so encouraging for at least an richard to have luke you know i just. I'm i man. Well we're kind of note you get on it that you will find out your trust me you do it and that will change your perspective. You'll see with this is all about and it. Put your your timeline way out further. Know you're starting. You're making more long term decisions. As based on that. And i think the associate i would encourage. I would be part of that. Item is whatever. Alan i gotta do. You know the sponsor some them doing just a get a tawny shirt lily. Kids whatever the hell it is and then you take him out for. That's one the afternoon of y'all go. Cheer the team and they got them. Rock stars and the picture of nearly getting crypto burcin silver dimes by a nice cream. I mean you know the the and and it's fine to break the cycle that you guys have seen the need for autonomy of money and if you make it to where they don't have to have a ton of meat from the young age and infix everybody else all my god. We got free society. What the hell you know and these are important skills. And that's why. I knew richard identified when he was and how it affected him and he was like you. Like you say it's to be able to make money or or whatever it is is a values they can live their lives so that they're not worried about eating are paying the rent door. Thirteen years about megan's money to well. We need to make money so that we can do the thing that we're here to do in the world because right now so many people are worried about making enough money to get by and so they're not being creative. They don't have the flexibility and in the room to do the things. I really glad you guys came to do this. And i'd i'd and and It's it's you know. Part of the attic is just to count. You know how. We didn't need. Richard you know and i'm sure he didn't care you know but that was just funny. You know it's pretty awesome. I know i'd i'd i'd i know it's awesome and it makes a lot more sense. You know understand that Where you've come from that. You were early on in your part of the interview process. You know i can see where. Yeah i get it.

Filmmaker steve oldfield. Today is latest. Project is the documentary rush to judgment which was screened at pork fest and we'll be also featured at the anthem festival at freedom fest in south dakota this month and it's about what happened to those covington catholic high school students. When a short misleading video clip went viral and the whole world condemn these boys for apparently being insensitive and displaying their white privilege. And this and that when in fact the reality couldn't have been farther from that and this document goes very deeply into this and examines a lot of aspects of it that even i myself who spent a lot of time on it hadn't thought of so it's very important checkout rush to judgment documentary dot com steve. Welcome to the show. Thanks really a pleasure to be here on a big fan of. Listen all your podcast. Thank you so much. It was great to meet you at pork fest and to get to see your film myself so i can speak from a position of. I can be informed when we talk about. Let's first start with your background. How did you come to be involved in this documentary project. Well i was one of those kids who grew up watching the evening news with walter cronkite. From time. i was four years old and wanted to be a journalist for years and years months northwestern's middle school of journalism where i founded northwestern student television back in nineteen eighty-five. It still goes on today as a different name northwestern news now i think they call it. I was a tv news guy for twenty five years i worked. I was one of those news. Nomads tom. If you're familiar with that term every two or three years you jump to a different market and hopes of a better gig. And i was denver. Richmond detroit salt lake orlando miami new york. La and never really felt fulfilled to be honest with the longer we got into it. The more the business changed. If you remember walter. Cronkite was considered the most trusted man in america back in the seventies and eighties. And i've seen the business completely go to hell. Since then so i decided i would move back home and start teaching. I teach at thomas more university. I'm communication documentary filmmaking and then started doing and long-range projects where i could really control the content instead of doing a two minute story for the news. That's kind of how that all app. When did this whole incident occurred was at twenty twenty or nineteen twenty nineteen. Yeah okay. I should say that. The school at the heart of this whole story when same amount is called covington catholic which is in kentucky right by cincinnati ohio and i coincidentally went to the competing school having ten latin so i grew up my whole life. Really hating covington catholic. Because i didn't get to go to state and tennis. Because i was beaten by kid from cub cath and and never really liked the school at all. And then as an adult. I was doing a leadership group for high school students. And lo and behold cub kabc kids showed up and they didn't have horns and they weren't horrible people and i even liked their teacher and i did a video for them and twenty eighteen and had all this exclusive video that i owned inside the school and then january twenty nineteen. I get my facebook. And i check it in the morning when i wake up every day. I'm an old guy. Don't check twitter. I check facebook and friends of mine. Northwestern from all over the country in journalism or slamming. This kid who happened to be from covid comcast and i started defending him and saying surely there's more to this story. Don't just believe this picture. I know these kids. They're not monsters. And i started defending cup caf and i'm still in that position now a year and a half later i remember when the whole thing happened. There was a video that you could watch on youtube that had been taken just an amateur video taken by somebody and it was almost two hours long and it allowed you to see the entire context of what happened and i was so sure that the spin being put on this was wrong that i sat down to watch that entire video. I wrote about it and commented on it did podcast episodes on it. It was shocking. What you see in the video if you take the time to wash it now if we hadn't had if for all the things we rightly complain about about the internet today we hadn't had the internet if we'd had to rely on walter cronkite. This kid would never have had his day in court. There would have been that thirty second clip way out of context and his life would have been ruined. You're right. I would have expected you to of 'cause you're that kind of guy but it's so sad it's so many journalists who are and some of the premier organizations in the country didn't bother that little clip was enough for them and i think part of the problem with all this. Tom is that particularly inside the beltway as we call it inside the washington d. c. corridor. All of these guys are friends with each other on twitter and facebook and if one of them puts it out there like the washington post or cnn. They all considered the gold standard and then share it to and people have to remember if you're sharing someone else's post it's pretty much like you're putting your own stamp of approval on it and that's what happened in this case once. The washington post started doing stories and all the other people that they just assumed everything about. It was accurate and they were all terribly wrong. Let's get into what the basics of the incident were for anyone who doesn't remember or may not have followed sure what happened was we saw a very brief clip on social media of what appeared to be a situation or at least the way it was spun to us was that there was a native american man banging a drum and we were told that white kids had surrounded him and were mocking him as he beat his drum and there was one kid in particular. This next sandman. Who was staring him. Down while smirking. And so this was taken as evidence of white privilege and the entitled attitude of white men by the usual suspects. We have people on social media with big following saying that. That guy had a very punishable face. Is there anybody more punishable than that kid. I really liked to punch that kid so they already know that they wanna punch him. They wanna do him violence. They already know everything they need to know about him. Because he's wearing a make-america-great-again hat and he's smirking in a native american guy banging drum. That was what everybody saw. And that's why you you call it to judgement everybody. And of course as usual and on-schedule in the so called conservative movement because the conservative movement is full of people who are desperate to appease the left. Oh they're big. They stick their chess out and talk. About how brave they are but when push comes to shove they're terrified of the left and they wanted to get out front of this and say we're also against the racism in this video. The left never does that in reverse. It never happens in reverse if there's some left-wing kid who looks like he did the wrong thing. The left doesn't immediately rush out. Say oh we. We sympathize with all you conservatives. That's really rough. They don't act like that that's why they're not losers and unfortunately the conservative movement winds up being losers over and over again because they do stuff like this are sorry for my editorializing but i had to get that up. So you're you're right and in this case it was really amazing. How many people did just what you're talking about thirty signaling in the case and that was megan mccain had a big tweet about that and nick sandman and the other kids from coming in catholic were at washington for the march for life. They were all there for a annual protests against abortion and even the march for life came out and issued a press release and said we you know the march for life is about peace and we don't support this everybody through this kid under the bus even the bishop of covington who was under pressure apparently from higher up in the catholic church issued a statement and said we're going to investigate and we may take disciplinary action up to and including expulsion and when that happened when the washington post did what they did and when the bishop did what he did. Those were to kind of green light. Go say whatever horrible thing you want about this kid because his own bishop is questioning what he did and later the bishop had thorough investigation and apologize and actually went to the school and did a whole big may call in felon sword but those first few days you know it was too late. All the rush to judgment really put. This came in a bad situation with people. Don't realize about all these hateful things on social media sometimes in my field. Good to say the worst most horrible thing you can think of when you throw those kinds of attacks and a sixteen year old boy and his people threatened the scalp them to blow up his house to blow up the school. They were given police protection neck and his family in the ed to go to his little brother's and say pack a backpack. We've got to escape our house right now and the his father tells the story that as they were all going down the driveway to get to a secret location. All the tv news satellite trucks were driving toward his house. And it's like a scene out of the movie. Our horror store will if you're ever position where your situation relies on the bravery of an american bishop. You are sunk. That's just a general rule these people if they ever had any backbone before they became bishops part of the ceremony of becoming a bishop involves the removal of the spine. That's a little known part of the ceremony. So let's talk about then. Let's contextualized this. In what context could this famous. Smirk be understandable. Was it the case that this person this native american man we we now know was named nathan phillips. Was he in any danger. Was he being surrounded by them. Was he really making peace. Which is what he claimed he was doing. What's the context. Well you know. When when ryan anderson our producer watch the same video that you did and called me up on that saturday night and said look. I spent two hours of my life watching this. The video evidence is clear. That nathan phillips walked into the crowd. He claimed that he was trying to go with his friends to apparently to stare lovingly. At abraham lincoln at the top of the lincoln memorial but there was a clear path to the lincoln memorial that he completely avoided and he chose to walk right into this group of kids. Now the group of kids had been experiencing some pretty heavy duty pretty mean-spirited taunting from a group of gentlemen. Who if you've ever been to washington. Dc you probably encountered them at some point or another they go by the hebrew that's their term and they were saying really really racist stuff to the kids and they were also saying racist stuff to nathan phillips in his team and in the middle of all this the kids decided they would do something they do every year when they go to dc. They do what they call their spirit chance and they were doing all these kind of cheers and try to drown out the hate. It was being sued by the hebrew israelites. So at that point. I think nathan and his team. They started rolling their cameras of which they had many and they walked into this kind of firestorm. Thinking what can we do to get some listening here. And that's how this all started so the interesting thing. There's so many interesting things about this to me. But this nathan phillips who is a con man through and through. He gave repeated interviews to cnn. In which almost nothing out of his mouth was true is like he was describing a completely different event. None of these things occurred. The kids never chanted build that wall. Which would have made no sense in confrontation with a native american anyway. They never chanted that he was never in any danger. The black men who were the hebrew israelites. Were never in any danger from the kids. The way phillips presented it that they were the predators and the these black men were their prey. Are you kidding me. These kids were sitting there bewildered that they were being shouted at by people they had never met even though they had done a darn thing. It's incredible that this story could have been spending. Then we're told he's a vietnam veteran which the media. I love you. You spend a little time with us. The media just accepted that because he said it right because they wanted him to be a vietnam veteran because that would make these entitled little white little jerks deserve even more of the abuse they were getting and i have to say listeners of a certain age will remember this one of the most powerful public service announcements ever made was a native american with a single tear going down his face for keep america. Beautiful if you were alive in the seventy s you know. Doubt saw that over and over on television. And that's how they were trained. Nathan phillips here was this distinguished native american who was being attacked by trump follower and moment behold nine only as a native american. He's vietnam vet thing. Ding ding right. So that was that made his story even more awful. That this kid you know. The smirk was a smirk against veterans. It was smirk against native americans. It was a smirk against everything american. And the other thing. That was so amazing to me. Thomas at one of the things that nathan says when he's being interviewed. I thought these kids could tear me apart and you look all. The kids have a big smile on their face. They're all just kind of while they didn't say build the wall. You can clearly hear the kids. Say more than once what's going on. What is this all about. And and that's what was really happening. But but instead nathan went with his narrative that he was afraid for his life a favorite and as it turns out by a weird coincidence. No-one laid a hand on them. How 'bout that what does it. What a big surprise. So he thought. I'm going to bring peace to this situation where these kids are sitting there. Not sure what's happening while they're being abused by people who are abusing my people who were saying that my native americans deserve to lose their land because they worship the wrong god and we're all uncle tomahawks with our heads up the white man's ass what was said to them. Let's see so that's going on. In order to make peace instead of approaching the small number of hebrew israelites. I'll approach students. Who are just sitting there taking it. Why didn't you go. Approach the hebrew israelites. Who were screaming racist things at both the students and you could be because no one in his right mind would have that confrontation and number two. That wouldn't give you the publicity. You want conman exactly and the kids from coming in catholic had all been told. Don't interact with people judged year on thing and if anybody comes up to you just clam up and say nothing. And that's exactly what nick salmon did and everybody talks about that smirk when we interviewed him. Ryan i for a picture with nick and when we look at it. That's the same rookie out on his face. Some kids have that kinda kinda goofy grin. And god love him. That's just kind of nick. Being nick and he was he was just a wilder. And it's amazing how everyone rush to judgment and read so much into that same but again. I think none of it would have happened. Had he not wearing the mega and has not been a native american. Who who look so worthy of our respect by i look and he had that chiseled face and beating the drum. He does central casting in hollywood. Would to have him for a movie. You know and that's what was so sad about. Yeah yeah well. First of all. I my advice to him would be if you actually do. Wanna make peace in the future. Bang a drum right in. Someone's personal space is actually not going to be interpreted as a sign of peace. Just just to see you know. This is just the way society works. The other thing i want to mention. I learned some things from your documentary despite having watched the complete footage of the thing for one thing. I didn't realize that early on there was a case of mistaken identity where people were trying to figure out. What is the name of this smirking kid. And they got the name wrong. And so the kid who was falsely singled out. Wow nup getting all sorts of abuse and they tried to ruin his professional career that he wanted to. Yes so talk about that. His name is hodge dj and he wasn't even in washington because his brother was getting married. It was the first wedding and his family. And thanks to the internet. People were able to google and find out his mom's cell phone number so they're on their way driving to the bride's house to help her get ready for the wedding and this woman she's never met before starts screaming at hodges mom and saying all these horrible things somebody even said were. You should have aborted your kid. and they. When they came home from the wedding there were seven thousand twitter angry twitter messages lodged at the hodges and they were told that they were going to have a share as deputies sitting in their parking lot because everybody said they were going to scalp him and then some people were actually trying to get to the wedding to disrupt the actual wedding which thankfully didn't happen. But you can imagine what that was like. And he wasn't even there and he wanted to be a chef. He had been featured in a magazine article that mentioned that online so on that monday morning. Cincinnati state which is one of the top culinary programs in our region received dozens of calls and emails saying reject as kids application. You don't wanna racist in your program and people tried to ruin his life. He was the wrong kit. Yeah it's it's unbelievable. What happened to this kid. Who has as you say wasn't even there then. Let's talk about somebody. You interviewed for this documentary. There was some special abuse aimed at a black student at the school. And where the hebrew israelites. Were claiming that the white students were going to harvest his organs now. Couple years have passed since then. No organ harvesting has occurred so it turns out that that completely insane claim turns out to be false about that. that's another hard thing to predict. You actually gone to interview him and his family. I didn't realize what the outcome of this is but one a tragedy. Yeah this guy He goes by bo and like a lot of kids in our region. Their dream is to go to covington catholic because they're perennials state tournament and football and they're you know they send kids to west point and and notre dame and all and usc and alabama and all the top schools for their football team. And this kid. Bo wasn't catholic. But they really wanted to go to. Kevin and catholic as parents actually moved their business move their house so they could be closer to covington catholic. He was going to the school. He loved everything about it. You know he was on the freshman football team. Things were going great for him. And then this happens in the hebrew israelites were punching the although the club. Captains you don't even have a black kid here and they said no we do. Here's here's his. Nickname was cognac. Cognac and they brought him out in these the hebrew israelites and all kinds of including. They're going to harvest your organs. Well when he gets back to school and school finally opened had been shut down because of bomb threats and terrorist threats against them. After this happened it goes back to school in boise. It's an all boys school. What are they gonna do. That's what they were going to joke about. And they they said. Do you still have your oregon's you know you're getting better. Be careful and the kid basically went into. Ptsd he was completely free down. And this is a tough kid. I've met him spend time with them. I know his aunt really well coincidentally and he wasn't having any of it and he ended up transferring schools. Now the good news is he transferred to a school. That has another great above program in everybody is accepted into that system but Income caps tried to get him counseling. They tried to do all this stuff to work with him. And the father for the record. His dad holds no malice toward covington catholic. And he gets. The kids will be kids but And he said to. He said when when my son was going to the march for life i prepared him to see people walking around and vagina hats. And all these people who are you know my body my choice and he. He prepared him to be attacked by a bunch of feminine. He's always go after the march for life and he said i didn't prepare them to be attacked by manas joan race. Who were saying all kinds of horrible things to him said yes. That traumatic event was a true tragedy. And you know he was not getting any kind of settlement from cnn or the washington post or anything. He basically just had to sit out the rest of his year and home school and finish the year and then transfer to another school. Jeez well what do we do. We know anything about next sanmen. Whatever happened with the case. I guess the ideas that we don't know the exact terms of but they settled with him. Well it's interesting Washington post and cnn settled and one of the things that i don't think people realize and this is important for any journalist. Listening to this podcast as well. It's not just copy that you write that can get you in trouble for libel and slander and defamation. It's the links that you provide and one of the big issues that the sandman family and the attorneys took with the washington post was then they had that classic thing. So you've read this story. If you like it here three other stories you might be interested in those links when two stories about white supremacist about neo nazis. So the implication was the knicks. Sandman was in the nazi and white supremacist. So that was the big issue with them. And i think they were caught so red handed and so much with their pants down. They just settled rather than fight the case the lawsuits. Continue against nbc. Against i think the new york times gannett news service and a bunch of other people and they're still in the discovery phase of those cases. Right now they're being represented by a really sharp attorney named todd mcmurtry. I checked with todd every couple of weeks and he'd said you know we're still it's grinding along very slowly but some of the news organizations are doubling down and they're not about the settle and He's hoping to prove that You know that they were just as guilty as the washington post cnn. Which by the way as you know the way those lawsuits were neither of them were required to basically say they did anything wrong. That was part of their lawsuit on settlement. But he's hoping that agent show malas and egregious errors that really affected the light of this boy and his family and the school. What what do you want people to walk away from this documentary thinking and or doing great question several things. I think the next time you see something viral. Whether it's a video clip or a photo and there's some kind of interpretive headline or interpretive line telling you what you should be reading into this take a step back and say what really happened. Do what you did in this case and look up and he'll for other video look for other content. That's the great thing about google and youtube you can find other sides and before you just look at something and say. Oh that's awful. And then re tweeted or reposted. Really look at it because ultimately you're if you do that your name is going on it and you're saying i agree with what's consent and in this case the other thing that i thought that. Cbs word in this whole thing. Was that the original twitter account the posted all this and talked about this terrible example of you know racism and trump's white america or whatever was a fake twitter account. They used a photo of some actress from brazil and it was a teacher from northern california. The whole thing was faked. We'll never know who the people were. Who actually hosted that. Because the democrats in in washington started an investigation is see if maybe there was some russian connection to all of this and since there wasn't since they determined that it was something that happened in america. They stopped investigating. This all started by a fake twitter account. So i guess my first thing would be. Don't be fooled and just rush to judgement. And then the second thing is you really have to step back and say is it really worth trying to come up with the meanest most awful thing i can say to attack somebody and in this case it was a minor. It was a kit being told the most. I wouldn't even repeat on this show a lot of the things that were said to this kid. All because of people rushing to judgment of wanting virtue signal wanting to look like look how awesome i am. I'm going to attack it bore. Hey everybody let's take a minute to say a word about one of my favorite things in the world. The happily date box. A lot of folks are in great relationships but their schedules are so tight and they're running around and everything's hectic and they never really get around those romantic getaways that they need there never really able to carve out that quality time together that is essential to that relationship conversely you can have people in relationships where they're constantly doing things together but they'd like to have something fun. They can do quietly at home from time to time and the happily date box is just what the doctor ordered. In both cases we absolutely love it every month.

I guess that's a good thing because we're we're you know the kids are out of school and people are getting some time off and after the pandemic we're we're hitting the roads like like we never have have we that's right. Yeah definitely we anticipate this morning This this summer that me more and more people on the road To with kobe to the use of cars has skyrocketed. A lot of people are out using their own cars versus ridesharing and everything else and so We we expect this summer. That there's gonna be a ton of people obviously fourth of july coming up Big big week in here in the states and as we all know and so A lot of family is going to be on the road. I know austin indycar series. We've raised this weekend in middle hieaux And that's something. We expect a lot of people from out of town to come in and have other families and be a part of so. We're certainly hear from bridgestone. Try to raise some awareness or national tire safety week home. Track for you it is. I'm from columbus. Ohio so for me it's It's definitely home You know. I grew up going to the mid ohio. One of i think probably the biggest single reason. I'm an indycar racer is because of this track actually gonna and watching my pop you know race there as a as a kid has really formed my love for indycar racing And it's made it a lifelong dream of mine developed race here. Yeah we know that david. Letterman went to ball state. He from indianapolis he. You know grew up loving the cincinnati reds and. He loves car racing. And i remember. Because i'm in my fifties. I remember when he he hooked up with your dad. You get ray hall letterman lanigan. What you're what you're doing to this day and that wasn't a real wasn't just a lark that was a a real thing and you guys have gone straight to strength now for for decades. Yeah dave he's very passionate about his indycar racing and You know one of his very first jobs was to be a attorney three reporter at the indianapolis motor speedway and so You know he's he's been around this For a long long time it was his dream to be involved in racing and to To own a car part of a team in the mid ninety team merged joined up with my dad bought into the team and off they went. So it's been twenty five years maybe even more now that they've been partnered with that And it it'll great guy as i said hugely passionate about about racing and what we do and always end a massive supporter know of the series. And and it's good. We get them around a little bit. He's not around all the time but a little bit. You know now that he is. I guess partially semi retired. I still keeping busy with netflix. Show and other things but you know we we get a little more. Keep busy with a beard as what he's doing. No doubt you know if if you know my dad wasn't indycar racer and i i don't have the talent You do and a lot of its god given in your genes but of course you had to work really hard at it. So what was it like when you came up and you really want your first big race it. Nineteen just to kind of prove to people in the media are fans of like. He's only racing because his dad is bobby ray hall and you like no no no now. I got talent. What was that like to do that really early. Well it's always a great thing It is always a great thing but You know what you find my sport in my in my career And i think anybody with you know. A family name You know he's gonna live up to that. Expectation doesn't change. You could win once or case one six times six isn't maybe nearly as much as i would have liked in my career but having said that there's a lot of people spend an entire career any kind never win a single race you know but even in my case six win every single time i go to the track you still have the doubters still have those that want to hate. And there's no social media now even easier for them to think that they're making a point when the facts all right. I don't care what they think they think they do. And and so. It's your the access that they have to even more. So you always have to prove yourself as what i'm getting at you know i it doesn't change it just because i want you know it doesn't mean that people go okay. You know. he's not just there because of his dad. You know people are upset in people's minds that that's the way it isn't gonna move on. I mean you know it's going to be. There's a lot of people a lot of athletes. If you're you know tiger woods is on you know You're gonna go into golf. You better believe he can win one hundred tournaments and he's still gonna be always only there because his dad's tiger wood the way it is and You know we. We live with that and not to tiger woods scale but we live without each and every day and you got to prove yourself every weekend you know a couple of days ago on the show. I had Kelly wait on and she's written a book on warren. The professor johnson. And i imagine with you know your father in law john and your wife courtney. You're no stranger to what goes on with drag racing. Either definitely no. I'm pretty pretty in tune in there. I speak to my father-in-law lot about business and everything and you know. According to wife you know retired now. you know so it's She still involved. I mean we still go to the races. We still with the family all the time and very in tune with what brittany and and you know what What john and robert. And the whole team danny my brother-in-law's a crew chief for john. Yeah we're very in tune with everything that's going on there as well all right Talking about As i did national tire safety week For most of us we just look at a trend And then we think oh. They're looking pretty Threadbare there but For what are some other tips. Because there's the old penny tricks to work. Well so you you you know you just you just nailed it but I would say the first thing is. There's always three words to remember Inflate rotate and evaluate so inflate. Is you gotta make sure tire. Pressures are are correct. You gotta make sure they're up to the manufacturer's suggested pressure so if you look inside the driver's door jamb there's gonna be a sticker sticker will identify to you what those pressure should be if they're over inflated bad for the tire under inflated as bad for the tired it's also bad for fuel economy You know you should be checking those once a month. If you're not definitely check them before you hit the road this summer with your with your family. The other is rotate tires. Where on evenly onto rear side to side tires. To wear unevenly if the alignment of your car's off It makes it difficult so make sure that you're getting those tires rotated every five to seven thousand miles. It should happen a lot of people. Don't even think about that but you need to. You need to make sure it's being done. And the last is what you mentioned which is evaluate. Look at your tire. Make sure the wheel announcer tight. Make sure nothing loose. Look at the tread depth. If the tread is low you need to get them. Replaced the way to tell that is as you nailed it. The old penny tests take the penny heads down But abe had into the threat if his whole head is showing and expose it is too low. You have to get new tires. You do not have enough threat so then go out starts raining. You go through a rainstorm. You're gonna find yourself in some trouble. So those are the three things to remember inflate rotate and evaluate. And if you do. Those things definitely A few big steps ahead. Have you ever just for fun. And i know it's not street legal but have you ever taken you know an open wheel car just down the street i have. I've driven indycar across the golden gate bridge. You weren't expecting our you know. Was it foggy like it is today it. Why was a little foggy but no in In in two thousand and sixteen. I think it was maybe fifty ten fifteen I drove the top. Five of us in the championship.

Welcome back to the program and lines are available. Let's go out to manhattan hills kitchen specifically with charlie. How you doing my man. Well is certainly like hell here. Because it's a hundred three degrees. And i am sweating. You know what off through charge running in this muck and it wasn't pleasant so i decided to stop running. Do you know that it's freezing here. It's like fifty two degrees. It's just it's a san francisco june. H you anyway. One basketball soccer question now basketball given Yesterday you were talking about pastels. Yakking and given if the packages were comparable. Who would you rather have. simmons or past our siachen. Ben simmons or seok initiative asking price was comparable. You know it's interesting. I like simmons better. But i think siachen would help us more so i would probably i would probably go seok them. Even if i was building a team. I would go with simmons. But i think how he fits in. I would say crm right. Yeah okay interesting. I was just wondering All right so soccer. I mentioned before i i. I don't follow sports as closely as you My daughter does she she. She is almost as knowledgeable as you are she. She's a huge soccer so we were german so we watched the game yesterday and i had to consult alert for a couple of hours afterwards. going into the game. She felt they were evenly matched and that he can go either way. It was the german team. They have any chance of winning it all this year were they j- just not in She felt that they she thought that once. France got eliminated and worship. Will that every team division. That group got eliminated that she told germany had legitimate shot of taking it all honesty. They lost yesterday. What's your assessment of the german team. I guess yeah. And that was my and i say i root for my heritage which is german english and danish And so for me. I was not gonna win or lose that game because i love both teams but I thought england had more talent. I didn't think germany was gonna win this tournament. They've gone through a weird phase where you know last world cup. That was the first time ever. They didn't get through Stage and then there was this weird thing where they told hummel's and noyer and ruediger. You're not playing anymore. And then they did for me If you look in the The and they played with a back three that enter on the riott ruediger on the left. I had no problem with that. But you really need tony cross to step up and gerrad ska who got the start in the middle. I like him on. The left wing goes on the left. Wing are okay but the strike power like for some reason. They didn't start getting aubrey. They put team ovarian up front and then they had muehler who had one of the greatest misses him. This is a guy with time. Ten world cup goals and then guy have just won the champions league with his goal for chelsea. But he's still really young so they had a weird mix of of four really really five really old guys and then some kids so it's just it didn't really gel but it's germany so you can never count them out so going forward in world cup and a couple of years will they will they You think they'll be better that are shaped Maybe we maybe walk formidable or when they still it depends what You know flicked as they have. They have a brand new head coach. He's gonna come in with some new ideas he's gonna come in. He's probably going to End the world cup is next year. I mean it's weird. How yeah and it's going to be weird too. Because i was going to be a winter world cup because they gotta play it in qatar qatar but in twenty twenty six. It's here and i and my daughter told me the finals are going to be in. Metlife is defined. The the final getting the championship game would be in I don't know if that's accurate or not. Because she was jumping for she's like going nuts an unfortunately and no offense to mexico and canada. they're making us share with mexico and canada. We don't we don't really need them. I mean mexico. Two world cups. We i worked one in ninety four Yeah what they have to do is what they did You know at at the pontiac. Silverdome they brought in this hexagonal grass. Everything has to be played on grass and so they would have to make because that's artificial turf so they gotta get an end but yeah no. I mean Your daughter will probably the perfect age to really Enjoy that potassium question. Like i look at some of the younger they put in the sky. Who looks like he's fourteen. Years old gabri will still be there. I think emory sean will probably still be the leroy. Sante will still be there. So signing that's the one that my daughter says she is great again. I'm limited but it shouldn't she. She raves about him is is he is good and she says he is well. Listen that byron munich. I saw sonic play in person. I saw inaba re score four goals in front of my face when they'd be taught me seven to two couple octobers ago in london. That was a well oiled machine. But here's the thing that had coach is now the german head coach so i think he'll get the most out of sunday that that they can. Yeah she's always she's salon. She's always looking for getting in some then or just watching him and she she calls the bundesliga Closely soon The that's what that she on. What's what's her favorite team there. Fan like every every. I guess every german but she says she can she. She says they went all the time. And like the last one i dunno. She's quoting all last twelve times or something. She was saying that it's she. She's almost getting word but she Yeah so she's. I was watching the game because i'm like five steps. I mean i know this concept and soccer. Obviously i watching like she knows like i said she talked through huge and have a conversation with a for hours and you know my head would be spinning all right. That's that's like. I just wanted to get your in a Insight on the german team and Yeah chicken gimme calling time. She wants to talk to you. Definitely pass along all right. Thanks charlie. that's charlie out there in new york where Sweltering like most of the country is right now and We have a typical san francisco. Summer going on right now out here. We don't feel lucky. I can tell you that. But i i guess we are kinda. It's better than one hundred and nineteen phoenix or whatever Byron munich was actually my first ever team. Because that was the first ever soccer team i ever knew about when i was five years old. The first time. I went to europe and we actually went to munich. And they were building the olympic stadium there for the munich. Seventy two games and That's where byron. Munich played for a long time. That kind of like the spider web of glass. It was really Brilliant design and. I had one of those little. Id bracelets that. We're kind of common in the seventies and a little bit in the eighties and it said f c Byron moon skin byron munich byron. If you don't know what that means. That's just bavaria. So it's like bam vais. A bavarian motor works buying moon yeah so Anyway byron munich. Was the first team that i ever knew about the second team i knew about was what i thought was ajax ajax amsterdam and it wasn't until i was older that i find out it was i ax. And then when i was a little kid they had a show on. Pbs called soccer made in germany and they would show bundesliga highlights other than that. The only soccer we could see was the mexican league and then on the italian channel. They started playing. Sarah all games. No english soccer whatsoever was available until the nineties available on tv and so it was hard to get to know everybody and it was hard to see quality soccer. And that's the thing. If you see sport play a sport play garbage level you know. Why would you ever want to watch it. If me and dominik. I'll start playing cricket. You'd be like i don't ever want to see the sporting as long as i live because this is trash so it's just a matter of seeing it at its highest level and if all i ever saw my whole life was. Mls ivy league. Yeah no. I don't think i'm a fan of this. But when you see that the top level and then you see The stakes at it as well. There's just nothing like it and it really really hurts me to root against germany did it in the ninety two final when denmark played them and it was hard to read against clansman and all my favorites but yesterday because i love hurricane so much and and I just want him to win. Something in england has never even been to a final since nineteen sixty six on the world cup which they won in extra time over germany. Did jeffers ballg over the line. I don't think it did fully And germany you know. I've seen them win. World cups plural. So i was like fifty one percent leaning towards england in that game armored.

Mickey intruding home sat atop a hill emblazoned on the side of a six door thirteen car garage where the letters nt inside were many of the cars Mickey at made history with in both drag racing and Indycar. There's also shop office space and a vault filled with film footage Mickey hope to one day make a movie about his career.

He wouldn't provide any more details fast forward to March, and once again Danny's phone rang this time. It wasn't his dad it was one of his employees. He wouldn't say anything other than that Danny needed to drive to his dad's house in bradberry ASEP Danny got in his car and started driving you turn on the radio. There's a voice announcing some sort of celebrity murder, typical talk radio fodder but then Danny heard the word bradberry and his blood went cold as he pulled up to his dad's house at fifty three woodland drive. He saw that the driveway was blocked off with police tape news helicopters circled overhead Danny got out of his car and looked up the hill towards the house. His father's body surrounded by cops was lying prone on the concrete bloody and still. As, more family and friends learned of Mickey Intruders Murder One name was on everyone's lips. Mike Goodwin like I get that. That's a tough phone call to make. But I feel like the employees Kinda copped out a little bit whereas like, Hey, you should just go your dad's house like why what's wrong? I think maybe Disco Check Out Your Dad tells what's what's The anticipation of hearing bad news or the anticipation of senior DAD's dead body I. Think like paired with the radio and then pulling up in seeing police all around like having a piece of together to me. Seems, pretty rough I think that's I agree like the anticipation is much worse I I need to know like goes wrong. Just tell me I don't. I don't care like. Then you know and you can start dealing with versus like well is I mean it looks like it is but like hopefully, it's not like you still have that hopefully it's not hopefully it's not hopefully it's not and then you kind of have to like live the news, a number of times that way and also like if you don't know what's going on like you could think that your parents are still alive and so you're right. Maybe you're rushing and speeding on the highway, which is also like not great as well. Like if you know that there's like nothing you can do you're not gonNA put yourself in danger getting there. Yet. I can see how an employee would be like. I can't be the one to tell him but I. Yeah. I mean I'm sure that's what it was like. I don't know if it's my place but. It's sort of is if you're the one calling him, I would I would rather I would like preface of like. You need to go to your parents house like. There's been a murder is something. Yeah, how would you even say that like? Are they just say you can go like you're just like, Hey, your mom and dad had been murdered not good news. I Dunno very tough situation before we dive into the details of March sixteenth let's introduce might goodwin a name. You probably haven't heard before by the early eighties Mickey and his wife Trudy were managing Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group or Mt. A motorsports stadium tour that was one of the earliest touring off road racing series in the United. States. If you if you watch stadium trucks today M tag is. Basically the progenitor of that. Data Mickey Thompson basically invented stadium trucks which are one of the. It's one of the coolest forms of racing to watch. Yeah I love. It's like look like just like trucks just going off ramps. Are they like, do they kind of like? They kind of do. The wants today there. They mostly do on or street courses. Where they have the ramps and stuff like that. I mean you'll see him if you go to the Long Beach Grand Prix they're racing on the same course with ramp setup but guys. 'em Tagged Stadium tour was like they would go to places like the l a coliseum or these other big stadiums setup courses that are almost like dirt dirt bike or supercross courses rather, which will also mentioned later in the episode and race trucks inside of a professionals pro sports stadium. So pretty amazing although Mickey already had a successful performance parts company, he loved throwing himself into projects tinkering with. Other. Projects like hydro barriers which are now ubiquitous traffic barriers that can be transported and filled with water to be used on race tracks and highways. Hey, you know I'm thinking about putting water in a barrel. What do you think about that? It'll never work. I've been tinkering. Barrels a lot of water. Yeah. Never Catch people don't want water in their barrels they want barrels for the cement. ooh. However Mickey's true passion as he entered, his golden era was still am tag, which only had a small staff apart from Mickey and Trudy by Nineteen eighty-four, both nicky and his wife were experiencing health issues. Mickey famously subsisted on a terrible junk food diet that was now taking a toll and they finally decided to take off some of the load by partnering 'em Tags Events with a motor sports promoter known as Mike Goodwin. Had made his name as a rock and roll promoter in the wild atmosphere of the nineteen seventies. So cow, his crazy lifestyle lived up to his job title according to One person who knew him Mike would quote he would have ridden a snake if he could hold onto it is life was all about money partying sex empower in? No particular. Cool. I bum cigarette. Can I borrow five bucks I gotTa go pick up my daughter I just need some gas. We give me ten I get some chicken nuggets From twisted sister. Yeah, used to be I used to run this street man back into day, we used to go through all the way from the whiskey Chacho lounge man everybody knew us all the barrel touches new. This was back with you could do a great soda with only three notes. After organizing concerts for big names for like Ray Charles to Janice Joplin Goodwin expanded into motocross racing in Nineteen seventy-two holding an event billed as the quote Super Bowl of Motocross in the los. Angeles. Memorial Coliseum the event which included racers jumping through the famed. Siyam was a massive success. The Super Bowl reference even inspired the adoption of the term supercross to describe these hyper charge off road motorcycle events. So obviously, you know he's got experience with that and it seems like a pretty Experienced Partner for Mickey when IT COMES TO STADIUM EVENTS? Yeah. I always like when When companies can't say the Super Bowl you know like, oh yeah. The Big Game what are you doing for the Big Game I. Love the Big Game. You need to stock up for the big game on the Big Game Day there comes after. Saturday. Need they can't even say Sunday. Mickey although now a rich man was a working class hero the Bruce springsteen of racing goodwin was his opposite, a flashy playboy who frequently dressed in a knee length for coat yet. He liked to show off his money and flaunt his international hunting trips including one where he killed a Kodiak. Bear. You lived in a three story ocean view house in Laguna Beach Dude. With an indoor waterfall, he fully embraced the glamour that came with promoting massive stadium events and its charm clearly impressed Thompson in April of eighty four the two men signed a trial contract to work together right from the beginning the collaboration did not go smoothly. The First Thomson Goodwin race was held in Indianapolis and lost money as did their second event held at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan, their contract was a thirty seventy split for both profits and expenses with Goodwin owning the larger share. Thompson has got the name recognition. It sounds like. This guy was done. No work probably. I mean, this guy is the promoter you know like he's got the the juice in that realm. You know he's got the touch He's got the Powell the torch got the power he's got to. He's got the power. After the two events had run out of loss. Mickey's Office noticed a discrepancy in the accounting after further investigation they discovered that Goodwin hadn't put up for his share of the losses in his defense. He did have an indoor waterfall to pay for it's not really great defense. At that point according to those who are working with him. Nikki. Was Willing to take the hit and walkaway. He Goodwin agreed to stop working together and according to Mickey. Goodwin also agreed to return to the motorcycle exclusive events. He previously been organizing with Mickey continuing to do off road shows with buggies and trucks thus avoiding direct competition this where Goodwin didn't say true to his word at his next event in Anaheim he included buggy races. You don't Pun buggies in your races dude you didn't even do buggies. That's not what you do. You do motorcycles I, do the buggies and trucks needless to say Mickey was pissed. That's why you always get an agreement in writing handshakes me nuts. Things a gentleman. Now Mickey might have been a blue-collar dude, but he still had white collar lawyers he sued Goodwin. In nineteen eighty-five winning a settlement for three quarters of a million dollars. Okay. So known as seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars hairs for people who don't use fractions I, E R European fans all do frigging maths for you. That seven hundred fifty big ones now that. Led Goodwin to filing for bankruptcy in counter-suing Mickey for the next three years, the two men would be embroiled in a legal battle. What was supposed to be a deal to take the load off Mickey was turning into a major headache but in Mickey's is goodwin too far. He was determined to teach him a lesson and take the fur coat right off his back. Yeah. Snatch that waterfall. I want a waterfall. No Maki anything I want the waterfall. Goodwin resorted to financial trickery to avoid financial losses. The court's order that he sell his company to pay expenses, but Goodwin maneuver the proceedings so that his wife Diane won the auction for ownership of the company she took over at immediately hired Mike to run the business paying him two hundred and forty grand a year. That's eighty-five money dude. Yeah. That big a lot of money in nineteen. This infuriated Mickey who had also put in a bid in the auction. The bad blood was evident to everyone involved. The presiding judge recalled that the interesting aspect of the case was the animosity between the two principals of that company Michael Goodwin in Mikey Mickey Thompson. Thompson had gotten five hundred, thousand dollar judgement against good when he was going to collect come hell or high water I remember it being very a very difficult situation to handle because emotions were running so high why this courtroom so ding hot. Why are we all got to wear a suit? I I got away a suit and a gang robe on top I have a suit underneath my robe. Doesn't make liquor says I don't wear nothing tomorrow Mago. Day. Zach a gambling your role, but you just happy to see me. In nineteen, eighty, seven things only got worse for Goodwin Anaheim Stadium Ask for bids on the rights to host offer events at the arena although the stadium had previously loud multiple groups to host events, they wanted to streamline things and deal with one promoter. This incense Goodwin, it held events at the Anaheim stadium for thirteen years. He'd sold out ten events in a row, and now he's being asked to put in a low bid for sport. He had a major role in popularizing I've a question. Yep. What do you guys know anything about how aventure organized like what does a promoter do? Do you know? Remote I mean it's like a producer. Yeah. So he's the guy who hires all the people. So he's pulling strings behind the scenes, but he's also you know printing a million flyers. He's is hiring people to go on the radio and promote it and stuff like that. But he also hires like the announcer and he also or or she they also organize like all the like the athletes to show up teams show. Okay. So they're basically producers they. They're like hiring the people to make the production happy and like when you hear about like evil knievel or like this Guy Mike Goodwin or like Mickey Thompson like if they can put a spin on. It and make it popular make people care about it than they're good at it go. Now if he was mad before the bids, he must have been furious when he lost the contract to a guy name. Mickey Thompson who had partnered with some Texas base backers to put in a bid edging good out a new article from the time. Put it. In Blunt terms the Anaheim stadium decision is the one that may finally Barry Goodwin nonsense the infamous Usak car or over control of indycar racing has there been a motorsport related feud as bitter and prolonged is that between stadium promoters making Thompson and Mike Goodwin all he had to do not put buggies in his show. Yeah kind of I think Mickey would've gone after him but that's another episode that we should do is the cart Absolutely. Yeah, IT'S A. Story. We'll definitely do that. Can You? Can you explain it to me and thirty seconds? The the guy who ran indy like the Indianapolis five hundred track. Yeah. just was like Hey I'm GonNa run the sport now and they were like the other people were like Nah and he was like, yeah, I'm going to start my own sport and now he just did. That's a serious beady 'em right there big dog move Mickey didn't look the part of a skilled negotiator when executives he was dealing with showed up to his facility. He was often wearing jeans and a stained shirt over his pot belly working under the car but maybe that's what made him. So effective nobody would guess that he was a successful businessman and multimillionaire. Meanwhile, Goodwin made every effort to look like a player but Thompson had outplayed him at every turn according to multiple people who knew both men Goodwin was extremely bitter and borderline obsessive. He started to make threats against Thompson and his family to anyone who'd listen. Ted nugent. Yeah. That Ted Nugent was a buddy of Mickey's and advised Thompson to carry a gun Ted. Nugent told you to carry on that's out of character. At a party Goodwin was overheard telling people that he was going to quote take out Mickey. But the threats only made Mickey Angry Mickey Goodwin as a bully and he figured that bullies bluster and make empty threats. Still he took precautions including buying a gun and varying the route he took home from. Anaheim. After work. Trudy for her part was terrified according to Mickey's daughter Lindi. Trudy told her on multiple occasions that she feared for the lives of her family members fast forward to the fateful month of March one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and Mickey, and Mike. We're still feuding years after their split. On March Second Mickey One another lawsuit against his nemesis. Goodwin had been running TV ads that suggested Mickey's offroad shows were cancelled a transparent attempt to hurt Mickey's business on March Twelve Mickey and trudy attended birthday party for some racing friends make you having a good time and played down his friends concern about Goodwin? He had plans with a son Danny to build and run a two engine land speed racer tried and break the five hundred mile per hour mark fallen short of the sixties with Challenger on March fourteenth just two days before the murder. Goodwin. Made a settlement offer to make his lawyer but Mickey had to turn him down. Make confident that he had the upper hand for good. Then on March Sixteenth Mickey and Trudy woke up before dawn to make the drive to the Mickey. Thompson Entertainment Group offices in Anaheim to men in hoodies stop the couple in their driveway. Minutes later, the couple was shot dead. Mickey was fifty nine and his wife Trudy was forty one. The News Spread Quickly Lindy Thompson Mickey's daughter by first wife Judy was opening up the flower shop. She managed in Eugene Oregon when her mother called her up and told her that her dad and stepmother had been murdered as a kid lindy had revered distant father who didn't think that Lindy as a young lady had a place at the race track. or The auto shop it was a tough dynamic to deal with certainly and Lindy had run away from home at the age of sixteen travelling around the West Coast with a group of bikers before getting arrested for transporting we'd across the Mexico United States. Porter. At Her court hearing her dad had shown up in disguise with a grey wig glasses and A. You was worried that he'd be recognized by the press and didn't WANNA lose sponsors. It was a tough relationship that recently shown signs of thawing out. But no more. Lindy enter kids were traveling back to California to attend the funeral. cousy. Yeah. Tough situation to be in. Especially when you're on the verge of reconciling. Meanwhile the police were on the hunt for two suspects described by neighbors who had seen them flee the scene as black males in their twenty wearing dark hooded sweatsuits detectives put together the facts of the case which were admittedly very sparse. The two gunmen had infiltrated Mickey treaties gated community on bicycles, and we're lurking outside Mickey intruders home at the predawn hour of six am on March sixteenth the thompsons plan had been to drive to work in Anaheim separately. Mickey Open, the garage door. So trudy could leave the driveway then headed to his own car as trudy back down to the garage. One of the assailants fired a nine millimeter bullet at her side window, shattering it and piercing the windshield. Trudy panicked and lost control the van which slammed back into a wall. She jumped out of the car and tried to crawl away from the scene forensics reported that her acrylic fingernails had broken off on the concrete driveway. Mickey Heard The commotion Headed Back Towards the Garage a neighbor heard him screaming don't shoot my wife. His pleas were in vain. You was shot multiple times in the leg and torso. One shooter then dispatched Trudy with a shot. The other gunman did the same to Mickey. Shooting him as he lay on the ground as neighbors hurried to their windows in response, screaming and gunfire the two assailants escaped the scene again by bicycle, the brew method of the killing seem to indicate it wasn't a robbery after all Mickey and Trudy were clearly leaving the house the plan was theft. They could have waited for the house's occupants to leave Mickey and had thousands of dollars, worth of cash and jewelry on person and property, but nothing had been. Taken apart from their lives, a cop on the case described the murder to the LA times in no uncertain terms as quote, an assassination in addition to the initial suspect description police on the lookout for a blonde man in his thirties riding a grey Columbia brand twelve speed bicycle in Irwindale nearly ten miles away shortly after seven am on Wednesday the man had been seen trying to wave down cars and the police thought he might have been associated with the shooter's. Kind of weird. Stretch to make in my opinion. Yeah. Could you I mean this is six the murderers at six. AM This is at seven. You can do ten miles an hour on a bike right hundred percent. Yeah, you could do that. I did I. Did that for a little bit writing to the office? was now. It's very sweat. I had to bring an extra shirt every time anyway, the link the link between the man on the bicycle in the shooter's was tenuous, which was proof of how little detectives had to work with friends the Thompson Sprang into action contributing to a reward fund that quickly grew to two, hundred, sixty, thousand dollars. But despite the financial incentive, it was soon clear that the case was growing told WHO Heavy. Meanwhile making treaties joint funeral was standing room only. A singer saying we've only just begun by the carpenters song with special significance to Mickey and Trudy Nikki and Judy. Had danced to it at their LAS vegas wedding seventeen years prior notably in attendance was Mickey's close sister colleen who in keeping with Mickey Signature. Style of mixing business with family had frequently handled. Mickey's public relations on various projects calling took the meaning of the funeral song to heart the hunt to find her brother and sister in law's killers had only just begun. The ballot became her personal anthem as she became the family point person for all matters relating to the murder. Strangely. Colleen already had personal experience with the murder in the family only a few years earlier her son. Scott. had been killed in brutal fashion. Scott had allegedly been transporting cocaine from Mexico, his relationship with his criminal associates went sour she's what I mean. So with the kids in this family. He was strangled while aboard a private plane enroute to North Dakota when his body was dumped in the Pacific Ocean never to be found. Jesus Christ. I. I would not like to be strangled preferably that would that sounds. Check out this this picture I. posted in the podcast channel of. Mike Goodwin does look like Jeremy Clubs in like an American Jeremy Clarkson. Yeah. Kinda yeah he looks like an actor. Yeah. My like. He would be very easy to cast. Yeah. He looks like which means that he's a sociopath if he looks like an actor. We'll get back more pass gas right now. Sponsors.

Yeah, that's the worst I think what you gotta do. To prevent that is not have a house that echoes inside. There's a little bit more that goes into it but I, know that's a big component at least in my opinion is that like you gotTa have enough. There's something about echoey houses. There's like a thing to be said of like. At some point, if you decide that you're going to have kids like that has to be a pretty selfless act and then you're like, okay now, raise my kids I sat one year in like a really rich neighborhood in eighth grade. Right outside of DC and like their parents were so like career oriented like they all worked in DC and like they were just like never home and we were just like. In their. Huge basements like they're finished basements which don't get started on finished basements. Erin does a Finnish base when we were like, yeah I'll just have the boys overruled plays Ski Ski Ball, and it'll be like. In the neighborhood but then it's just where your kid. He. COMES A place for? Bridget, you need a bleeping. Don't they'll soom it's worse. I don't like. To specific your specific. To, all of my friends. And they were like. Exits to the outside. So we were just like we would come and go as we please we meet up in the woods. Start fires. Wow much different. High School experience than me definitely a lot of like. salacious things going down there. Yeah. So no basements that's that's a real for me. No basements. Yeah. No echoey. Basements. Try to maintain a healthy work life balance and focus on her kids. No one ever dies in and says I wish I would have worked more. Though is I wish I would have spent more time with my kids Dan Really Somber episode, man? In. The aftermath of her sons murder colleen, her husband Gary had doggedly track down the killers eventually convincing their sons North Dakota drug connection to wear a wire in secretly record the killers inadvertently confessing to the crime was Takashi six nine. Nice because of Colleen's determination, her son's killers were now behind bars she was determined when the same results for her brother it's crazy. Twice. I gotTA bring another murder family murderer to justice in callings. Own Words no one is trained to be a victim of a crime, but growing up the daughter of a police officer in going through what we went through with our son probably gave us a better handle of what law enforcement could and could not do in solving the case it wasn't an education we wanted, but we weren't gonNA dump it. while. Colleen's life had changed in many ways since her simple childhood under the hot sun of the San Fernando Valley by the Eighties Colleen like Mickey had left those blue collar beginnings behind for a life of wealth. She now lives in the gated community of San Juan. Capistrano was deeply mashed in the wealthy Orange County social scene down down there near Dana Point maybe San Juan Capistrano the prime suspect for the case quickly became Mike Goodwin. Mickey's lawyer Phil Barten-. Nettie was informed that Goodwin had hired an ex police officer follow him. He received death threat letters at his residence and even at the golf club where he was a member. Barton Eddie was certain. The letters were coming from Goodwin calling was also targeted. She got a call from a block number she was certain it was goodwin but couldn't prove it the voice growled aim. You back off. You're gonNA join your brother. Colleen. was unfazed already solved another murder you is this ain't my first murder Rodeo you. I'm dead inside murderer rodeos that good band name. Justice is my only. Joy You. Piece of Shit. I A ghost of a shell of a woman down I thought that was written so well said. Soon after Goodwin became an official suspect in the case at that point, the threats directed at Colleen and Barton. Nettie suddenly stopped. We're all netease opinion. I think he was shocked that he became a suspect on most route away. I think he believed he could shine on the police and they think, well, it can't possibly be this guy I have a belief that his lawyer told him that if he had any other plans, he better not do anything. Spurred on by the Thompson family, the La County Sheriff's Office interviewed over seven hundred people over the rest of Nineteen eighty-eight in relation to the murders they heard all about the threats Goodwin and made towards the thompsons. But without direct evidence was only hearsay same with the motive. It was perfectly clear that goodwin had reasons to want Mickey dead. But motive wasn't proof. Meanwhile, it was announced that the Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group would continue to. Operate the company released a statement that Mickey had already developed a five year plan assembled the staff he wanted and set the course for the company's future. In fact, he intrude he had planned start taking it easy right after his birthday on December seventh the company would continue for a few years before going bankrupt in the nineties it was a tragic end the legacy Thompson had been building for himself the family started to divide up belonging. Like many car guys, he was a bit of a hoarder, Nolan his son Danny solve that he failed fifty-three dumpsters with trash rented a five thousand foot storage warehouse to keep his father's belongings and cars that were worth preserving. Dude. I I relate to this so much I think we talked about it last week. I'm so afraid of how to do this for all this stuff. My Dad has did a meanwhile colleen turn to the media to and give the case more bandwidth among many other media and news profiles. The case was featured on the hit TV show unsolved mysteries in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, which is back on Netflix now leading to one hundred and fifty people calling him with tips. Still no progress was made in the case for his part Goodwin made several highly suspicious moves just before Thompson's death in January of that year, he purchased two, hundred, seventy five. Thousand dollars in gold coins despite claiming bakruptcy he'd also wired four hundred thousand dollars to offshore banks in the Caribbean. Soon, after the murders of Mickey, intriguing Goodwin and his wife left town for four years he avoided southern California sailing around the Caribbean on a fifty seven foot yacht going spear fishing and skiing in Aspen when Gordon finally returned to California Nineteen, ninety-two, which side note by would he do that? He was arrested on financial fraud charges unrelated to the murders meanwhile, Karma seemed to be at work as colleen's fortunes headed in the opposite direction of Goodwin's she was elected as the mayor of San Juan Capistrano in nineteen ninety-three fun job just like. I'm the air of my rich neighborhood. Isn't there like like isn't that neighborhood known for swallows That's Nolan's Mom's neighborhood Oh my God. She's Colleen. Marshall. Their connections to encourage the police continue investigating the murder which was now firmly situated and the frozen section of the cold case files Goodwin had been convinced that. Get Win had been convicted and was being sentenced for fraud, but that wasn't enough for calling. You know obviously, because he murdered her brother for her to injustice for her brother, she wanted Goodwin be charged with murder finally in Nineteen ninety-seven, there is a breakthrough in the case at Collins urging new homicide detectives have been assigned to the case among them midwesterner. Named Mark Lillian Field Lillian fields spent months following up on the many tips that come in over the years at times traveling the country to follow up on leads. Finally, his break came when he another look at the bullets that had killed mckeon, Trudy, comparing them to the guns that have been in. Goodwin's possession at the time of the murders he determined. The crime scene bullets could be a match for a nine millimeter Smith and Wesson model for sixty nine owned by Goodwin. It was an encouraging lead, but it still wasn't enough evidence to charge. Goodwin. I mean I'm like happy you know I'm like. Good for colleen you know like justice. Great. But this is just like so like the American justice system, it's like it takes rich white lady to get any attempt at. Yeah. Like and even like a rich white lady has to be like the mayor of San Luis Capistrano? Well, I mean as we'll see there, there wasn't as we'll see though it's because of a lack of evidence it's. Really hard. You got to to build a case circumstantial isn't always enough but also after like after watching begun in the dark, it's so broken like the justice system is unbelievably broken precincts don't even talk to other precincts cops used to barely even talk to other detectives. There's no communication I. Think there's just like a lie can't. I can't figure this out like there's no point like there's no. I. Don't know I. Don't I disagree that their that the system needs a lot of overhauling. I'm just thinking in in this case particularly, there is a reason why would it went cold? So quickly you know because the killers did a good job. I suppose. So they didn't leave a lot of clues in two thousand and one again with help from colleen, the Thompson case was featured on America's most wanted. Great Great Program more than a decade. After the murder, it caused a sensation and a revival of public interest in the case receiving multiple follow ups on the show in the words of one of the show's producers. I can't think of any other crime that got this much attention with the Thompson murders we were doing mentions even when there were no developments and even when the main story wasn't about the Thompsons in an ironic twist of fate even after his death Mickey Thompson's name remained a powerful draw for media attention. The most wanted coverage led to an avalanche of fresh tips, almost all of them dead ends though. that. Bad luck would change some weeks after the first episode aired when Lillian Feld received a tip that led him to Ronald Stevens one of Mickey Thompson's former neighbors in bradberry Stephen. Told Lillian Feld that a week before the murders, he had seen two white men in a rusty Malibu station wagon hanging around near Thompson's house. One of them had a pair of binoculars Lillian. Feld. Presented Stevens with a photo array and Asked him if any of the men looked familiar Stevens hesitantly picked out goodwin's photo Lillian Feld continued to gather evidence and in two thousand, one, thirteen years after the murder he traveled to. Dana Point and arrested Goodwin who by then had served time in prison and was out on probation for his financial chargers. Goodwin was a long way from his days of spearfishing and living in a mansion with a built in waterfall. A trailer shared with his elderly Father Lillian Feld put Goodwin in a police lineup both Mickey's neighbor and his wife then picked him out as the man who had been sitting in the station wagon. That was good enough for Lillian felt goodwin was charged with murder when colleen outward of the news she and her friends celebrated by during for a champagne toast it was goodwin himself reviewing boxes of discovery evidence in his jail cell who discovered a critical error in lewellen fields case. The. Gun that had been used to murder Mickey Thompson had six so-called lands and grooves the etching in the barrel of the gun that makes bullets rotate however, Goodwin Smith and Wesson only had five of these groups. It was impossible that his gun was the murder weapon Lynnfield was confronted with the evidence and confessed to what he called. An honest mistake at this point, the evidence linking Goodwin to the murders was tenuous at best begun evidence had been thrown out the eyewitness putting Goodwin in the station wagon also didn't quite add up the car had been parked almost a mile away from the thompsons house with a hill blocking any potential surveillance. The best case prosecutors had was goodwin's motive and the threats he had made about. Mickey in the years leading up to the murders despite this goodwin was charged with capital murder and was ineligible for bail. He five years in prison as his case move towards trial with the court date being continuously delayed by over. Sixty different court proceedings. The one bright spot for Goodwin was that he had been transferred to L. A. County jail would be tried. They're not in Orange County where calling political power had the potential to influence the case in her favor without physical evidence. The prosecution instead tried to focus on good wins, reputation and actions before the murder they had over forty witnesses testify eight of whom said they had been personally threatened by Goodwin in response Goodwin's defense lawyer public defender Ellena Sarah's argued there was no actual evidence linking Goodwin to the murders. It's crazy was like a mood. Jillian. Air and now he's has a public defender. What happened to all his gold coin you got a yeah like they're still out there James. Hundred character can probably go find gotta go find Goodwin's gold. In her closing statement lawyer said of her client call a jerk columbine EGOMANIAC, call him a braggart approve what you're alleging rather than arouse passion and prejudice against this man the prosecutors have no killers no plan no meeting no weapon no phone calls no payout no nothing. The only physical evidence from the scene is DNA that does not match Michael Goodwin. The jury deliberated for six days and on January fourth two thousand seven judge Terry Schwartz read the verdict to a packed courtroom vibrating with silent attention. Mike, Goodwin. Guilty on two charges of first degree murder the sentence two consecutive life terms with no possibility of Parole Goodwin bowed his head and avoided eye contact I'm just amazed that they were able to do that with no evidence at all. Yeah. Yeah, I don't know how to feel. About this. Evidence I'm fairly sure he did this, but it also proves how broken the system is. Yeah. Like that someone can get convicted without any evidence because the dude sister is powerful and the guy was famous I mean I'm like eighty five percent sure that he orchestrated it. But like what is the point I mean I don't WanNa get too soapbox here anything like that. But like what's the point of having like a fair and balanced trial if? Stuff like this can happen. You know that's where I met too because like I'm pretty sure the guy did it. He's obviously a piece. I want him to rotten hell but there's no evidence. So like what? Yeah. Why do we even have a system? This is why like every couple of years someone gets out of jail after spending twenty years in jail because they you know prove that they weren't the murderer like that shouldn't happen ever, right? Yeah. Because he was a jerk because he got a bunch of people like, yeah, he's A. Man Probably Killed Him. Yeah. At his sentencing hearing Goodwin refused to take blame for the murder I have condolences for Mrs Campbell. Apologize because I'm not guilty. He said calling gave an interview to court. TV. Mickey Intruder were helping with this case i. knew someone that evil would not walk the form of the jury stated that people think that every single fact has to be proven in DNA Dan stamped that it has to be an open and shut gun in hand blood on the t shirt connor cage, which obviously wasn't there were so many reasons for Goodwin to be guilty there would be a logical reasonable deduction to say who else you know what I mean who else that's not how it's supposed to work beyond. Early. It's beyond a reasonable doubt not. Yeah. This person just described a reasonable doubt if you're if you're ever making a leap of Judgment Yeah that means that you're doing it wrong. This is not right. This is not how it's supposed to go like again, I'm pretty sure this guy did it and I I'm sad that Mickey Thompson got murdered but this is not how you. Make, someone stay in jail for two lifetimes. Yeah. It's a very confusing feeling right now. Very conflicting. For sure. Well, of course, it was also a far from closure for the Thompson family as well throughout the trial a glaring fact remain the actual killers had never been caught and for the one thousand, nine years since the murders there hadn't even been a named suspect linked to the crime scene Mike Goodwin remains in jail he continues to maintain his innocence and offer counter theories for the murders among them according to an La weekly interview he has named quote one. The Saudis to whom thompsons tire company suppose supposedly sold defective tires to members of the Vago motorcycle gang which I think we mentioned in our hells angels series against which Thompson wants testified in Scott Campbell's murder trial three drug for whom Thomson supposedly transported product during off road races and Mexico. All of these are Kinda Racist, ESPN all the series are intensely conspiratorial, but then again so was Goodwin's own conviction. If I was okay if I was in prison. And I thought I had a theory. I would probably focus on just one theory rather than a scattershot that. Has, a let's say wide spectrum of round people involved. Yeah. I probably wouldn't do that. Anyway in two thousand eleven, motocross historian, Tom, white paid goodwin a visit at the high desert state prison in Susanville California in prison according to White. Goodwin shared and eight by ten cell with a fellow prisoner Goodwin had been earning money by doing legal work for other inmates. He was missing a front tooth from a scrap, the fellow prisoner, and also walked with a cane in two thousand, fifteen, a state appellate court upheld goodwin sentence. They ruled that the circumstantial evidence in the case was quote overwhelming Goodwin is now in his mid seventies and remains in jail and maintains his innocence. We'll be right back with more of this story, but first a word from our sponsor. Meanwhile in two thousand, nineteen last year. The La Times reported a bizarre occurrence with Mark Lillian Feld, the cop who had led the charge on arresting Goodwin, he was caught posing as a jail deputy and bringing contraband in for an inmate Lillian Feld claimed it was a coffee, an egg mcmuffin, but jail officials were so alarmed that they banned Lillian Feld from future access to the jail. That's Super Shady. Yeah. Disguising yourself as a a jail deputy disguising yourself as anything. Pretty frigging shady. That's us. That's us as. No cap that's us as the kids used to say. No Cap, no cap do that Saas. Definitely. Not Let it lucky knocking gonNA. On a level. No Cap. That's. US. That's I don't Wanna get ratio but no cap that's us. This questionable behavior along with William fellows occasionally, shoddy police were seemed to suggest some level of doubt in the case against Goodwin if not his actual guilt to this day, the two gunmen who murdered Mickey Intruder Thomson on March Sixteenth Nineteen eighty-eight remain at large without their arrest. It's hard to say that justice has been done for Mickey Trudy and everyone they left behind Mike. Goodwin has now decades behind bars although he maintains his innocence it's clear that at the very least he wished Mickey and Trudy Thompson dead and when you wish someone dead and they get murdered people understandably treat you with great suspicion. That's how that works. If there's lesson to be learned from this dark chapter in automotive history, it's that hatred violence only lead to more hatred and violence. So let's honor Mickey Thompson's legacy by treating each other with love and looking out for one another. Hell. Yeah. Yeah Nice. But I do not feel good about this. Not, Thompson was such A. Cool, guy some like the details towards the end like obviously doesn't deserve to get murdered. But like zero percent blaming the victim did not deserve to get murdered but like I just feel weird I don't know it's a very I feel I. I think that's the only way to feel. It's like there's so many. So many loose ends in this case, and that's why it's kind of I mean that's why we're talking about it in the first place is that I don't even. Know. How to say this like one of the saddest moments of this whole thing? was like where they arrested. Mike, good at a trailer that he shared with his dad like this is like, but that was after that was after he came back house after jail I guess. But like right before that he was on a sixty foot yacht in the Caribbean so I don't feel too bad for him. Yeah. I mean that guy was probably a piece but like yeah, it's it's it's. You want to have a very clear villain what you do have in my goodwin but at the same time, you also have sympathy for him because there is no evidence. Besides the circumstantial and the the key, all the character witnesses in the trial but there's no physical evidence linking it into the case. Yeah. I think he probably. Yet. The jury said to they're like, yeah, I mean he probably did it. I don't think I. I'll say that I don't think two consecutive life sentences are. No evidence. Yeah and NO CHANCE OF PAROLE? Thing too is like just like a sign of like. Oh. These got some influential friends. In Like around like well, that's also that's also a factor like the case had. Yeah. The case had been in the mainstream for like ten years old years. Almost twenty one of the great unsolved mysteries of Pop So it was on TV two times. Yeah. I mean America's most wanted an ongoing series with it like that's I. Think why the jury decide convict Oh we have the chance to close this case. Do. This. Yeah. So but it feels hollow. It feels hollow without that evidence hard evidence. Like this thing was part of pop culture but he this is a big pop culture story for Twenty Years Twenty years ago I was like. A child living with my parents. You know what I mean like like it was like a part and people's whole lives. If you go online I, mean there's entire websites dedicated to Mike Goodwin's innocence and their straight up about a to they're like, yeah, we know we know he was a jerk and that he did make threats but the evidence doesn't point towards him. WanNa. So you mentioned being petty about like the legal stuff I don't think it's Patty to hold on up in court that screwed you over. It's not it's reactionary for sure but I don I wouldn't consider it petty to like hold some of wholesome on in court. Yeah. I mean I think like the. Pairing with like a larger company to buy the dudes thing that's like. That's like a shot on your head. You know what I mean. That's like that's like when when. Michael Jackson bought all of McCartney's like songs. Like while he was next to him at the auction, like that's payer. Mickey Thompson has we discovered in the last episode I think Mickey Thompson was this an old school American guy and if that's the way you're gonNA, treat him in business. He's GonNa come after that was the logical conclusion of that. Don't know why Mike Goodwin decided to be a snake like that. But that's this would happen. You would erode is. Could hold onto it. A check your but can't cash. Okay Anyway. Thank you so much for listening to this episode of Pass Gas. Sambre episode very much.

Mason and Ireland HOUR ONE

"Blah, don't grow. I see. You're putting Honey in your e don't throw back though, I'm coming by. A half growl. Yeah. The ball Super Bowl L three one week from today. We will be right on the eve of detecting pretty much of it for us. You know, how they told these guys today? I said, look, I don't think you're here next. Erin, I'm not. And that is the day before we go play the warriors. And boy we'd better have LeBron back for that game. Yeah. We'll talk about that. So I said, let's let's take the show to the people. Okay. The people. Okay. So we are going to go out, and we're going to do a show out in. We're not sure exactly where yet, but we're going to take it out on remote and do it life. We're going to do a lot. Why the what's interesting is the Rams the team themselves leaves Sunday. Yes. Yes. And they want people to send them off. Right. Did you get that Email Kevin? Dem off is going to be on with us at twelve fifty five today. And we'll talk about that. There's a sendoff party on Sunday as they take off. And I think it's over by the new stadium. Can you imagine drive by sort of the new stadium every day and in in when they first started building it? I couldn't see much of it. Now, I can see the whole thing. Yeah. No. Go. Once you go down the one five and turn north onto the one ten Yancey all of it. And are you disappointed? You're going to miss our ticket to the streets show. No. I hate remotes. I I'm very excited that I'm not a part of what? That's why I said, okay. John's now, let's go out. Let's go to the people. Let's do this thing. Remotes always have technical problems. And not this time hosts, particularly, you know, play more to the crowd than they the audience. That's okay. Audiences ninety nine percent of who's listening audience is going to be put on the air. We're just going to grab a microphone, you know, if you're gonna do it. It's the day bef- its last show for the pigs Adelie makes total incompleteness you should give away something for the best. Rams costume best. Rams kosten a person that comes best like, you know, those rest like an actual ram or just in Rams gear. Like, the, you know, the old when they played in Anaheim stadium, and he had the watermelon heads, right? The watermelon. Had exactly they still have those the watermelon. Heads are still at the at the Coliseum. There is a guy in New Orleans who dresses up like, a whistle. Yeah. Hate that guy. Well, and then he blows wis right because he was screwing everybody up. He kept. Here's exactly exactly you know, they're signed guy who. Had on the air last guy sign bring a bunch of signs. Yeah. And by the way, all that New Orleans stuff that we had on last week totally worked. All right. Good food sign on. We brought Taryn kill him. I was thinking about bringing home. It's just throw the dice. See what happens? Greg's like rolling. His eyes is like. No, I'm fine with all that he doesn't wanna work. No, I'm fine with anything. Rams. I'm all in on our anything. Rams should absolutely be on. I don't care. What it is. It could be a ten year old kid. Speaking of what did you try to get the time? I'm still waiting for. Did you hear this? Signed Tom Brady. Yup. And he said, he's proven within a shadow of a doubt. What did you scientifically? Did you see the pictures of his science report? It was very thorough. It was serious. It was a real report. The kid did a lot of work. Now, did we'll try to get the kid on the show. Can we get anywhere with? We were working on on a couple of guys who actually played football with McVeigh in highschool. Did we get anywhere on the McVeigh changes used to change the place? The guy got back to me. And he said that he'll get back to me again later on today or next guy got back to you. Yes. Saying, okay. What to what I did was? The guy got his Email. No, you don't to read the. I mean, he's he's just some guy. Why would he not just come on the show? I'll be back in touch later. This guy knows a guy. Yes. Oh, it's got a guy. That knows a guy knows. Everybody's gotta got that guy. I wonder if McVeigh's high school football coach is is still around. That'd be interesting interesting, or even as college coaches, but you know, there really isn't anything wrong with a player changing the place. That's you know, basically what Peyton Manning and Tom Brady do all the time. They look at the defense in check out of it. Oh, sure. And your did you hear that what you know, we've been criticizing Sean Payton for throwing a pass throwing a pass on. I did you hear somebody talk to Peyton this week? And said we call a run that was breeze. That was said the Rams guessed correctly. The exact run we were gonna call and breeze. Audible Adam Riess, check this. Oh, hall of fame quarterback is the one who made that mistake. Wow. That was a huge even if you saw the. Run. Well, that's just stupid. I'm breezes part because I already had the Phil even if you saw the on you can't do their as take us up. Right. The even even if you take a sack weren't they unlike the twenty even deeper they were even deeper they were inside this or the Tanai probably had fifteen yards to play them. Yeah. I mean, but here's the thing. No matter what it wasn't about getting a first down at that point. It was about just running the ball three times to run the ball inside a minute. I tweeted when Ted Ginn caught that pass. Yes. I said am I crazy to suggest here that the Rams just let the saints score? Because if they don't the saints can just milk the clock, and the game's over little did, I know the saints would have a brain cramp and throw a pass right because it was inside two minutes. So and so you were saying use the ole defense let New Orleans score. And then just try and you you get the ball back down seven with two timeouts. So the way. Hey, we got the ball back. We only had to get three not seven. So my theory turned out to be completely wrong. If if you would have done the drought Ireland plan you would have had to score a touchdown. Right. But I didn't know that New Orleans wasn't gonna milk through to pass. Right. The first pass was on first down. Stop the clock. Second play was a run in which the Rams us. Our last time out in the third play was was Nick rose Coleman laying net guy, we won't get straight to the plan to call about last night. Obviously us met designs put that boy on put that blowing a waffle house fron pan. By the way. Did you? Did you read Ben Watson's? Enough. Does he have a point should Cadel do something while because isn't an apology without any action somewhat of a hollow apology like Roger don't good? What can what can Roger Goodell? Do find Nicole Roby. He did when today twenty six thousand dollars. Okay. So maybe that was enough for Ben Watson. I don't know that I think that's what Ben Watson Ben Watson just wanted to find. You wanted something. I thought he I think he wanted. He was asking for accountability on behalf, by the way. I don't know how they arrive at these numbers. He was fined twenty six thousand seven hundred thirty nine dollars. That's ridiculous. Just twenty five or thirty lie. Why is that number? So exact yeah. They were on the Rams thirteen yard line yet. So the even if you take the sack you just don't you don't run a pass play. You don't use anything by what you check out of it. Now. I I don't know what Ben Watson once he wants Roger Goodell to make some kind of state. But that was that's a statement finding Nicole Roby Coleman that that saying, okay. But that's not really admitting that the league did anything wrong. You know, they're finding Roby Coleman for a helmet to helmet hit. Right. Correct. Yeah. Adam Schefter saying that the fine on Nicole Roby Coleman is an unofficial statement. Sure, unofficial state because what the hell's going to say, hey, well, he's gonna get. He's you know, they screwed that up when he goes to Atlanta. He does his annual state of the union that's open to reporters, and he takes questions the first question is going to be about what it so easy. Ask me Commissioner. Yeah. Why haven't you taken any accountability from the NFL office on screwing over the New Orleans Saints shouldn't they be the team here at the Super Bowl? Well, it is a game of involving human beings. And there is such thing as human error, the head of our -ficiating union has already come out and said and contacted. Sean Payton and said. Bad call. He hasn't said it publicly we've heard nothing from the head of the officials. So we've only heard from Sean Payton, why won't the NFL take accountability for screwing over one of their own franchise. Here's the thing. We have a competition committee in the competition committee decides the rules, and Sean Payton will be on that competition committee next year, and he'll have a chance to change the rules based on what happened in that game. But I'm saying you didn't even follow your own rules. Why didn't you follow your own rules? What was my own rule? Your on rule is that should have been two penalties. It should've been passing neighborhoods and a helmet completely blown. There you go. You think he's ever going to say they blew it. Yeah. I think he's going to have to next week. Yeah. I don't think you will. How can you not? A lot of what you said in the beginning until I- I squeezed it out at you like to. He's not gonna do anything. I only only because I press you on it. Did you think he can't do what you did in the beginning? He exactly what he learned about it. What I mean? Yeah. He can't. I'm tired of. I'm tired of talking shut up them watching just shut up. Well, it just shut up to me. It doesn't make any sense to blame the Rams for what the officials didn't do. I think we should start a Kickstarter campaign for Nicole Roby, call in to pay that twenty six thousand seven hundred dollars that would work. Kickstarter campaign to raise a voice. Exactly. Well, so far. So yes, let's do it. Yeah. All of your chain dot org positions work where you've got to be things where we've got a couple of the. Said it's percentage of his salary is why that no is that what it is. Yeah. Yeah. 'cause Neko Roby it's not really highly played paid player. The money though, more this coming up next and Lakers lost last night. And now, it's it's getting Rhonda was back, but still no LeBron and don't know if LeBron's gonna play on Sunday or not the instincts are gen we'll get John Stotts on it. Oh from from. Dominic feick? I think right Mason Ireland ESPN LA what is going on. So the NFL response Benoit's called for count ability for one hundred down the way around saints dot com with the fine for nico-, call them. So if that's their response, and that's all they're going to say like somebody somebody just sent me an interesting tweet earlier in the season, they fired Aref midseason for missing a call. Why isn't that guy fired? Good question. See they haven't. Did they fire him on the spot? The ref in the middle of the season. Yeah. He scored very poorly in a in a game in overtime game involving the Brown, by the way. I did hear that burp. You just you did just burp during that last little sequence. Now, I'm a professional. I'd. The employers. You have the most agreed just purpose and history of the shy. Have no. Go back, John Burke during that segment. The you know, you you just said that on the air, why are you pushing? But I I have no idea because I'm telling these guys to do. No, right. I don't really press is gonna say you just set it on the on the air. That's reached them though. And how would they know that it's not you that birthed talking? Well, if you will that doesn't mean, you can't perp do you think if you ask most people in a blind poll, which one of us is most likely to burp on the air. They would see me. No, I think it if we asked if we played a clip for somebody and play that clip p people at home who is this burping is this Mason. Or is this me? Yeah. Do the original do, you know, do the one you have the one you always on your page? I lose this stuff. I don't know. Exactly. Where everything is. We're supposed to get rid of all the most of the stuff. I hear go here. Hooper who burp tear it was late in the game. How could I do? And I'm right in the middle of a sentence late in the game. One one. Thousand percent. That's john. I don't know what. Sometimes I wonder John. Are you actually thinking that? It's not convinced yourself. Do you really believe like hire? You live pig. Are you like OJ? Did you convince yourself always say, I know the truth. So do what you want with that way. Do you really believe I know? Okay. All right. We'll leave it at that. Yeah. Though. You're just speaking your truth. I know that. In your true. Yeah. Which is the most ridiculous. It's actually not. Okay. It's all speak my truth. Okay. There are three sides to each story. Do you disagree with that? I did your side my side and what really happened. No. I I would I would answer it like President Obama answers. Can I would say you're entitled to your own version of any story, you're not entitled to your own version of fat? But we all have our own version of a story. Right. But not or there are certain things are facts you had on. Thank you didn't do it. I think you did. And the truth is you did I know the truth. So I'm just leaving. No. That's just your late in the game. Yeah. That was completely you do you have it. Okay. We have John Ireland's latest burp. It's going to be very very similar. Go ahead. Good question. Yeah. See they haven't. Did. They fire him on the spot. The ref in the middle of the season. Yeah. He scored very poorly. It's not aimed in their time game involving the Browns right here that bur no. It's high heard it. Yeah. It was it was the beginning. It's not as good as the original late in the. Again, which which I referred to as the Mason burp. Oh, just texted and said that John Ireland hands down so says we have to go with Shays most likely stone green with a fact that we agree on. Well, you say there's a version every story is okay. Stoned right now. Is shade Jackson junior stoned right now at twelve twenty on Friday as much as you burp right there. That's how much OJ is stone right now. So yes, yes. Yes. They're right there that we all agree. So you wanna take you know, he's he's his senses are dulled. Oh, by the way, you were supposed to now. Lakers lose last night. We're gonna by the way real quick I want to mention all of our coverage of Rams super week. Sponsored by valvoline instant oil change home with a fifteen minute oil change just drive up pull in and drive out. No time. Visit so Cal oil change dot com to download up to fifteen dollars in coupons and to find a location near you. So. A very action packed. Yep. I know what that means. Somebody's winning tickets to the Super Bowl. I know what that means. All right. So last night. I don't have to say it. They're just supposed to know it right in number fifty three qualifies to win the trip to the Super Bowl their to the to the Rams game every phone line. They want us to do. Yeah. There are no open lines wants to tell people to call. So they'll get a busy signal every line is Janet of LA. Yup. Many tweets hearing Ireland, John burp, Mason farted. I did not far. I agree with that too. Absolutely. Not true. But I am definitely the most likely to so last night. Lakers lose didn't look good racial. Rondo was back. Good. He looked good. Yeah. He looked good. I was all ready to do the worthy clap. Yeah. Class. Yeah. By the way, we're never get back to us. What's he what's more important than getting back to us with the exact specifics of the word, the how do I do the worthy clap lessons? Although I I really don't need it until they win a game Sunday Sundance win. I think so Sunday's guaranteed windy, but you don't want as as we've learned with home games against like the Knicks and the Cavs. You you can't assume anything without LeBron. When the bronze here that's a win. Right. But we've got a one game winning streak against the worst teams in the league. We beat Chicago. That's true. But we lost in New York and Cleveland at home. This is the worst team in the west though, nine ninety nine close. Yeah. I mean, they're the they're like the only team that's not in playoff contention for all intensive purposes. Yeah, they're tanking. They are trying to lose. But that doesn't mean they're going to finish. What did they have ten wins? They're going to finish with more than ten wins. So somebody's going to beat them. Yes. They're going to be they're going to beat somebody. It's actually hi how many of that? Eight say, no, I think there, but I'll look twelve nine eleven they're they're the they're the absolute bottom of the western come through the only. Let's put it this way. Yeah. They're the only team with no hope of making the playoffs. None that every other team has hope they don't. And they have Devon Booker. Who's really good? But that's it. He could score. He can score. And then they got the Andrei eight and who's big into pain or eleven in thirty nine. Eleven twenty wins. Yeah. That's enough to be bombing. Wanting no matter what they're going to be bottom three you. Here's the weird thing. So as bad as the Lakers have been lately, and they've been that. I haven't ten without LeBron right? They still are three games out of the five nine now. So it's still Brian comes back anytime soon. This is there for the saving, but he's got to come back. They are also Mace three games out of the thirteenth spot. So there you go, right? I mean, they it could go either way Robert Partido, the new burp is similar to the old burp. He just released more air the first time, I wonder how long he's been doing this hashtag burp gate. Workday. Again. I I know the truth. Yes, you do. And O'Shea says he's not stoned who believes him. I do my friend o'shane. You just said who minutes ago that he was he look here's the thing. He would tell me if he was not deny it if he wasn't. There are some people that are perpetually stoned and can get get along just fine functional stones. Yeah. That's not me. Hi, I'm one with my my wife's friends who super tractive is perpetually snubbed issue, really. And like functions totally normally house she vape. I don't know. I've never asked her how do you know sheets perpetually? So you'd know. Sounds like she's not functioning perfectly. There's just a a glazed over her. Yes. Just like. It it. It becomes obvious. Yeah. No. There are people that do there are people to do. I'm not one of them. I can't. I'm like nothing wants. I'm once. I am. Let's see. Oh, we got the official answer on where we're doing the show next Friday. Excellent. It's official. Plus, you know, John any anything can happen today. It friday. That's right. Yep. Do people so calling or is that over? No that's over. We already got our winter. Okay. For for this hour. Two more. Two more qualifiers. Two more Jews. Friday O'Shea is Fred Flintstone rights retro king. One good to notes. Anything happened today? Because I'm in a really this thing's going to be loose today. Mason and Ireland ESPN LA, I not a done deal not a done deal. But we've got an update. Marlins catcher date JT real Muto could be headed to the dodgers. And along discussed trade sparked when the all star requested a pass out of Miami, MLB dot com and Fox Sports reported a trade between the Marlins and the dodgers for remain real Muto is growing closer. Jon Heyman fan cred reports top catching prospect keyboard. Ruis is expected to be part of the return for real Muto. We're Emoto hit two seventy seven twenty one homers last year. He is an elite defender elite defensive catcher he is under team control for two more years at a really good number. And he also led all catchers in wins above replacement last year, which is perfect because he has mining doll who was a decent player, and he's going to Milwaukee. Couldn't hit last year, particularly in the postseason and was was off defensively for the first time. He had a lot of pass balls. So this is yes. Money passed ball. We saw in the postseason adding Pollock plus real Muto at forty six homers to your lineup. So that that replaces some of the poppy sent out when you treated Puig. And when you lost. Yes. Mine and Goodall, right? It's about bedside. Bedside essex. Yeah. That's about a wash. I think what do you think? Greg. I would love JT real Muto. And I'll move whoever needs to be old to make it keep it Ruiz one hundred percent. We don't know what keyboard. We is. Ruis is he was can't say you'll move whoever. You wouldn't you wouldn't give him Bellinger. They I know in the minors. I would move anybody in the miners the miners. Yeah. Well, it appears you're like me now. Well, it's always move anybody in the minors. Right. But you don't you already have enough catching prospects in the minors already of four guys DO Cartwright. Connor Wong Will Smith and keep it repeat. Now, you're just showing off. All right. Yes. Pretty so. If you go around the diamond you've got removed to- catching you've got a platoon of max, Muncie and David freeze at first base. Chris Taylor at second. Cory Seager short JT at third base in right field. Alex, Verdoux go and centerfield AJ Pollock and left field. Cody bellinger. Yeah. I would probably switch and have Bellinger in right field personally. It doesn't do those always been right fielder. Better doesn't. Yeah. If you can play the outfield, you can play centerfield nice left right balance throughout because you've added AJ policy of added removed. Ceo, probably not quite as many of the crazy platoon situations that we saw last year you'll still have it with key. K and Taylor at second in that Jill so sometimes KiKi and Taylor out in Redfield from Bellenger for do go. Okay. So if this happens if they trade for Yamamoto, that's probably it. Right. Definitely that God yours for next year. Tomorrow is fans tomorrow's Dodger's fan fest. So I mean, we're we're here. I think. Catchers and pitchers and catchers report in two weeks. So it's it's on us. I think they'll win the division. Do they go back to the World Series? But that roster. They've got the pitching they've got the pitching. I think if you get real Muto you actually won the off season by getting Pollock and rail Muto to add to the team that was already went two years in a row plus bringing back Cory Seager who is one of the best players in baseball two time all star when he was when he wasn't injured. I think that's the best off season of any else. I wanna I wanted to fend an AJ Pollock has had injury stuff. But did we agree yesterday? That broken bone is bad luck. Yeah. Okay. Pretty much different areas to twenty fourteen broke his right hand 2016 broke his right, elbow 2017. He did miss time with a strained groin last year. Miss time with a broken thumb. So we're talking about broken bones, which is more about bad luck than it is about chronic injury issues. So. So I'm not gonna pencil amend for one hundred twenty one games or whatever it's been last couple of years. I think he'll we'll see more games of him, barring bad luck Faren, bad luck. I Jonathan it's fischel. It's here. What's next Friday? Mason and Ireland half of us live from dudes brewing company in Torrance, noon to three that's all we've got so far. But you'll be a dude's brewing company in Torrance from noon to three okay? Now, here's the story with this place. They don't have. It's not a food place. It's a it's a beer place. You don't have a kitchen. They've got a brewery and all that stuff. So I want to add somehow catering to this. Now, we have a budget of absolutely zero. Okay. But there is promotional value for for being part of this. And my what I envision is southern food at taste of Atlantic thing. So fried chicken, right, somebody fears comrade coming bring your favorite food in that world. And then you can talk it up. Well, no, it's not bring a right? We're no we're looking for like a restaurant is chef a caterer somebody like that that can do it, and they'll they'll be promotional value associated with it. How do they reach us? We're still figuring all that. But you can go ahead and call in. We don't have we don't we don't have. We don't have that set yet. I don't want to say anything caller number seven. You don't have shut up. Yeah. You if you wanna if you wanna be a caterer, you can find me on Twitter, and I can help set that up at Bergman. Greg Bergman, Greg or at Venice, Mason will work that out. I mean, a dream scenario. Roscoe's will bring a full Sproul that would be great. But we haven't talked to him about it. And and believe me, they don't need any promotional value. Where we go in Memphis is now open in Los Angeles is reach out to those people. Yeah. I don't think we're going to have fried chicken shipped in. No, they have a place in like a mile from here. Do they? Yeah. They open the open two years ago. I didn't know that I want to save for Crenshaw does that sound right right in that general area time, it's on Crenshaw. Who's got the best French is that the best projects I've ever had the one in Memphis. I haven't eaten at the one in LA, but it's the same owner. Oh, same owner. I'm sure it's just as good young, man. There's nothing better than fried chicken. And one in Memphis is insanely good insane. Yeah. Like, really, really all right. Coming back next. What are you got? Well, there's a reason. To you. See I just foisted that on hats. Okay. Didn't have anything. There's a reason. Possibly to. Explain why Kyle. Kuzma was not good last night. Okay. And really hasn't been good for two games. All right. I'll tell you what it is coming. Excellent. Mason in Ireland ESPN LA what's up it's Friday and one week from today, we will be gearing up for Super Bowl l three the Rams versus the patriots. And atlanta. I heard you on the morning show is on the morning show. Just after you today. Okay. I heard you talking about do you think my schedule is that crazy? I think that I'm picking the Rams for win the game. I think at the Rams lose that you will be out of your mind a week from Monday because you will have flown all night. After attending. The rams. Do you disagree with that? Well, let's we're going to try and listen to that show from the air. But like, I'm going to be flying the Indiana. Which would be worse me in Atlanta or me here in L A. I think staying up all night if they win could be incredibly fun. And if they lose. I think you're pushing yourself to your limit. I was thinking about adding a day at the front smart instead of instead of flying on Saturday on Friday, but then going after the remote. From the remote. Yeah. Straight from the remote, probably smarter. Yeah. And then you can take a bag and Bullard you with your bag to get on your two AM flight, you could just leave it at the front desk of the hotel. Yeah. Leaving them testing though in down. That's the way to go. That's the way to go flights not until two AM. We've got plenty of time. Okay. So you remember the Lakers won that game in Oklahoma City? I do that was a great game and kouzmine had thirty two points. And then the next game against Houston. He had thirty two points in the last two games. He's been eleven for thirty from the field including Owen nine from deep. And he's not rebounding. So they think MSI tasks Luke Walton about them and Walton said he didn't look right to me. He didn't look he's moving right. I feel in my Getty wasn't able to do what he wanted to nice says he felt fine and he could play, but he didn't look like his normal self so reporters went and asked Kouzmin Kouzmin says he has a hip strain. He suffered in that game against the rockets week ago. And he doesn't like he's not moving. Right. So and I think he feels like he has to play because Lonzo LeBron or already out, but this injury bug that the Lakers have been hit with is an all timer. It just keeps going to. And the only way I think he could probably get this better as directed. And they can't afford to rest it. So it's worth keeping an eye on to see if Koussa can get back to the way he was playing a week ago because he's a completely different guy now. Yeah. The absence night he was a non factor. Well, let's see. We're figuring yesterday forty seven wins. Yeah. Which I think we'll get them in. But which would be twenty twenty wins. No, they need twenty two wins. And they've got thirty three left twenty two and eleven they could do that twenty two and eleven you know, all these all these things saying that they you know, what they could do all this is predicated on LeBron coming back. They're not winning twenty two games. Without lebron. Right. All right. They need him back. And so if you look even with LeBron that's not easy. Correct. Twenty two and eleven if you look at last year forty seven was the amount of wins that both the seven and the eight seed hat both San Antonio and Minnesota now the nuggets had forty six and missed right. I think forty six will get you in this year. The problem is Forty-six might get you the ADA. And then you get to play the warriors. Yeah. That's just the death slot, right? Blind. Call. Hey, who's this? Hey, Brad Stevens grid are blind. Call yet. I wanted to call you guys. And and thank you for that rans rally. Yeah. How about that this morning? Would you have fun with that? Oh, I had a blast. I'm sure all your listed. It sounds like you guys are having a good time. Also, it was fun, man. It was fun. So are you have you adopted the Rams are you big on the Rams, I'm huge on the Rams. Are you kidding? The Rams are gonna take it. If you look at Dr grant, if you were you Rams fan when they were here before. Where'd you grow up? I grew up in Orange County. Okay. I followed the ramps and as a little kid George, Allen's ramp. Yes. So you're like me. That's when I got it down. That's when I got hooked on the Rams, and when they moved to Anaheim, I used to go sit in the upper deck for those great. Eric Dickerson teams were John Robinson got back on the map. I actually I said this morning in the morning show. I think it's going to be close. I have a lot of respect for the patriots. I'm going thirty one twenty eight Rams. What do you think? Well, you know, Brady's hard to bet against on those lot closing drive. But I agree with you. I think we're going to hold him on his last drive. I think we'll have the ball at the end. And we're going to win by three points two or three points two or three points on your attitude. Hey, still twenty five percent off cool sculpting right now. You know, it makes. But if they use Dame, that's double. That's that's fair Mason's with her life. But Dr grant, we probably are the only show in America where both hosts have been cool sculpted by you, actually. Freeze the fat here. Marina man land. Where feel good we are this great. Yes. We are. This felt this show in America. We we look great. That's what we've got gone to you. Yup. I remember it's freeze the fat dot com freeze the fat dot com. Thanks grant. Coming Femi by say, all right. So there's are blind cau- go figure who's next who's next. I, you know, the other thing is if Kouzmin is really hurt and you get LeBron back, then you've probably coups arrest because you don't play him. He's averaging nineteen points a game. You don't play him. You gotta play Beasley, right? Okay. How about this? Here's a hard question for you to answer. Let's say LeBron doesn't come back Sunday. Okay. Hurt needs to take a week off. Oh, okay. Will you then then reluctantly agreed to take mellow who's just sitting there just for a day for ten days, even but I don't know if you do attend day you'd sign for the rest of the year on a one year deal. Veteran's minimum. I like him for the Phoenix game. I'll take him for the Phoenix veterans minimum. You gotta sign him for the rest of the year, and whose whose roster spot goes you can take your pick. Maybe you want DongA Bonga can go to come DongA. No long. No, I did not call in d do you think I'm an idiot. Really want me to answer that. Yeah. It might be it might be mellow time. If if KU needs arrest now, it might run off. Front office is way too smart you in your gut. Does it make sense only? If all those guys are hurt. See here's how it makes sense for me. If that's what LeBron ones. Yeah. Well that that's the means by which he would get picked, right? I mean, if LeBron says, I want mellow mellows common NF. Lebron says I want mellow. I'm like I'll be on the mellow mellow. Yeah. What he said. Yeah. Whatever whatever Twenty-three says, I'm with him. I coming up next for you. Kevin damn off VP football operations. Jeff for the Rams.

A New Kind of Family: The Privilege of Being in Gods Family

"Today's episode of a new beginning is brought to you by harvest partners. Helping people everywhere. No god learn more at harvest dot org and while you're there browser library of free books designed to help you grow in your faith. Sometimes the bond between christians can be closer than what we call a family. The word family speaks of closeness. Unity and mutual concern. Coming up today pastor greg. Laurie says believers have the privilege of being in god's family. Jesus says anyone who does the will of my father is my brother and sister and mother reminding us that you become a christian. You become a part of a new family brad. Essence believers are a part of two families. We're part of our earthly families. And we're part of the family of god. there are privileges and responsibilities. That go with both and today. On a new beginning pastor greg. Laurie out how it sometimes difficult to share about our fate with our earthly family. Sometimes one family doesn't want to hear about the other one today. Some good insight on what. God expects of us within those most important personally relationships. Well we all have a family of some kind. Some families are big and loud. Some families are small and quiet pretty much every family is i would say generally dysfunctional families a bit weird. Welcome to the club. We all have strange angles and weird cousins. Did it ever occur to you. Did your the weird cousin or your the strange uncle in your family. You probably are every family. Has its form of dysfunction. I came from a dysfunctional family. Now i'm the head of a dysfunctional family. It was comedian. George burns who once said and i quote happiness is having a large loving caring close knit family in another city and quote so you can probably relate to that. guess what. She's had a family to hit a mother named mary. And a father named god top that jesus also had brothers and sisters and jesus had a child could a mysterious could no doubt after all. There's never been a man who has ever walk the earth that was fully god and fully man. He was not a man becoming god. that's impossible. He was god who became a man. God came near. Jesus was god was skin on. Jesus was god joaquin among us. God how to face in hearing the gospel of mark we see him. Beginning his public ministry. The ministry of christ lasted around three and a half years but yet he lived thirty years before that. Thirty three years total. So what was he doing for the first thirty years of his life. Why didn't he have a fifteen year ministry. Why only basically three year ministry answer. Because jesus was living our life. He was breathing our air. He was experiencing our pressures he was facing our temptations and ultimately he would die are death. I know it's hard for us to wrap our mind. Around the fact that god became an embryo that god came among us as helpless little baby born in a manger that need to be cared for and nurtured and nurse like any other little baby. But that's exactly what happened. What we call the nativity. When he was in that major he cried like any other baby and he grew up like any other child assault. Cuba's in the main journ with you know the ability to speak. Hello mary joseph. I'm jesus i'm here in a mission. Though he was just a little baby that grew up like any other baby and grew physically and and grew in every other way in fact bluetooth fifty two says he grew in height and wisdom and was loved by god and by all who knew him so he had the privileges of deity that he laid aside as he walked among us as a man he never cease to be god but he walked among us as a human being he never sinned once not only the sin but he never even had a thought out of harmony with the will of father in heaven. Jesus said i always do the things that please him who could say that but christ himself he always did the things to please. The father and i would think he was the model child. I mean if joseph fast jesus to go do some work in the carpenter shop. I doubt he would get a complaint. If mary as jesus declared the table. I'm sure he did it cheerfully. I'm confident what they went down to the synagogue to worship. Jesus totally engaged. I know he loved to hear the word of god. I know that he was the perfect child. In fact we know that his siblings were probably challenged by that. Can you imagine a mary saying to the brothers and sisters of jesus kids. Why can't you be more like your older brother. Jesus they might say mommy's like perfect. Actually well he was indeed perfect. He was the perfect son well. Now he's beginning his public ministry as recorded in the gospel of mark and remember marquez. Gospel of action. The word immediately is used over and over again. Jesus is on the move. Jesus healing people. Jesus is delivering people from demonic possession. Jesus is forgiving sins. Any has been confirmed by his father at the baptism. When the father says of jesus this is my beloved son in who i am well pleased and the holy spirit comes upon jesus in the form of a dove so question. How does the biological family of jesus respond to all of this. How does marry respond. How do the other siblings respond brings us to our text. Mark chapter three verse. Twenty two twenty one. One time jesus senator nelson the crowds began to gather again soon. He and his disciples couldn't even find time to eat what his family heard what was happening. They tried to take him away saying he's out of his mind way what he's doing all these miracles. He's busy doing the work that the father and his family shows up and they wanna take him back home because they say he's out of his mind. This brings us to point number one. The hardest people to reach where the gospel are. Those who are closest to you. The hardest people to reach the gospel are your parents or your children or your husband or your wife or your brothers or your sister's now sometimes people will say the reason. I'm not a christmas. Because i this follower of christ was the hypocrite. Do you think christ was ever a hypocrite. Do you think he ever said or did anything. That was inconsistent with who he was. Of course the answer is no. He was the perfect example yet. They still did not believe in him. In fact we even read that. Jesus could do no miracle in his hometown of nazareth unbeliev of the people and jesus himself said a prophet is not without honor except in his own country. So be patient with your family. You may think because. I'm a preacher that all of my family believed immediately. The fact of the matter is as my mom was not responsive to me. When i came to christ now i have to admit i probably was a bit on the overkill side and i hit her with both barrels of a gospel. Gun telling her she needed to repent of our sins but it took not just years. It took decades from my mother to come around and believe in. Jesus christ and in fact she did not really come to believe in him until the end of her life and the same was true of her husband. Bill who. I tried to reach with the gospel. I didn't really reach him until the very end of his life so again the hardest people to reach. Are those in your family. Let me say a word to you if you're married to a nonbelievers especially if you're a woman and maybe you came to christ and your husband has not come to christ yet and you're saying how do i reach emma. I'll preach a sermon to him every day. A put little gospel tracks in the sandwiches and when he has lunch bite into them. And that'll reach them. No actually what you need to do is probably not. Give him any more sermons. You need to just live it first. Peter chapter three talks about the way to reach. Non believing person is not by your words but by living the word is one translation puts it this silent preaching of a lovely wife so there comes a point where they don't need more sermons in need to see it demonstrated but now as our story progresses we see the family of jesus showing up again now. I'm not sure what happened to bring this event about. But they let him know that they were there and maybe they wanted special attention or a better seat in the house. Sir whatever it was but word came to. Jesus your family are here to visit with you and we read in mark chapter three verse thirty one. Jesus mother and brothers came to see him. They stood outside and sent word for him to come out and talk with them and there was a crowd sitting around. Jesus and someone said your mother and brothers are outside asking for you. Listen to this response. Of christ who is my mother who are my brothers then. He looked at those who are around him and he said this is my mother. These are my brothers and sisters. In fact anyone who does the will of my father is my brother and sister and mother bringing us two point number two when we become christians were placed in a new family. Jesus could've elevated as some other at that point or even his siblings but he's saying hey who is my mother who were my brothers and sisters those that do the will of god reminding us that when you become a christian you become a part of a new family. Now that doesn't mean you're not still part of your biological family. But sometimes the bond between christians can be closer than what we call the blood bond. We say that we're related by blood. But when we become followers of jesus are we not also related by blood. The blood of jesus. Christ that was shed on the cross. For all of our sin pastor greg. Laurie will have the second half of his message in just a moment. It's so encouraging when we hear that listeners are growing like hearing these studies dear pastor greg i found christ in mid nineteen seventies and. I'm very thankful for my christian life. I i heard you preach learned about evangelism at your first harvest crusade. Anaheim stadium where my friend bill was saying over my life. Jesus has protected me time and time again including killing me from cancer. I lived on the east coast now for over twenty five years and recently reconnected with you through your podcast where i found each podcast is a real bible. Study for me. And i'm learning so much and it's causing me to study god's word more intently at nearly seventy nine years old. I'm enthused and excited about my faith. Like i was those many years ago. Thank you for helping me read kindle my fire of love for jesus in my old years life is wonderful. What a great story of. How pastor greeks teachings from god's word have made an impact on this man's life in if you'd like to listen to pastor greg's podcasts you can do that through google apple or spotify or just go to harvest dot org. That's harvest dot org. Well we're talking about family relationships. Today faster continues today study from his series the gospel for busy people jesus now established his new family of disciples. So we're going to read a list of the men that he used to change the world. Some are familiar names others not as familiar but as we look at these people we see the diverse personalities. We see these people because we recognize them. They're probably like relatives. We already have an eclectic bunch no doubt about it but these are the ones that jesus called. Recently i watched an old movie for my childhood. It was called the dirty dozen. Ever see that. Movie starring lee marvin and charles bronson and others. It's a story of this military guy that goes to a prison and recruits a bunch of guys some headed for death and others who would spend the rest of their lives in prison and he recruits them for a special mission so they were called the dirty dozen. I'm not suggesting that the twelve apostles were the dirty dozen. But i am suggesting they were very ordinary individual. We might call them. Questionable hires but each one was hand selected by jesus and they could not be more different from one another. We read about them in mark. Chapter three burr sixteen now. He appointed simon to whom he gave the name. Peter james son of zebedee and his brother john to them. He gave the name boy genetics. Which means sons of thunder. There was andrew. Philip bartholomew matthew thomas james son of fatty s simon the zealot and judas iscariot who betrayed them so right at the top of the list berry familiar name simon peter apart from jesus himself. No other name is mentioned in the new testament. More than simon peter. He was a central figure of jesus three years of ministry and also for the first three years of the early church and jesus spent more time with peter than anybody else. Now the thing. I would point out. No other person speaks as often or as spoken to as often as simon. Peter i might also add. No other disciple is approved in corrected as often as simon. Peter was what distinguished peter from others as. He would just say what he was thinking. You know how you have insight thoughts and outside thoughts and you veto a lot of things you'd think about. Don't say them. Peter seemed to just blurt out whatever he was thinking. You always knew where you stood with. A big fisherman. I think he always meant well. He just didn't think things through. So if we were to compare this to a family reunion. Peter sort of like. You're lovable loud. Uncle who will hold court you know after the meal telling great stories and entertaining everybody. That was peter very outspoken. And on one occasion he made this amazing statement to jesus said in matthew nineteen twenty seven to christ lord. We've left everything to follow you. What then will there be there for us. In other words he's saying hey lord we've given up everything to follow you. What's in it for us. I mean one of the things that just blurt out but that was peter he thought it so. I'm just going to say it. One of the most familiar statements have peter. Speaking is when jesus was transfigured. He took peter james and john with him and by the way we often think the reason that he took those individuals with them. It's because they were the more elite apostles after all. He took peter james and john with him into the garden of kacem. He took peter james and john with him when he went to raise the daughter of gyrus and he took peter james and john with him to the moment of transfiguration. I have a different theory. I think the reason he may have taken them with them. More often than the others is. Because you wanted to keep his eye on them. When i was in school. I was always disrupting class and more than one occasion. The teacher would say greg laurie. I want you to pull your desktop next to mine. So i can keep an eye on you. Maybe that's why. Jesus kept peter. James and john closer to him. Well anyway here. Peter james and john they fall asleep and they wake up. And what are they see picture this. Here's jesus christ shining like the sun on one side of. Kim is moses on the other side of kim is elijah and they're having a conversation now. This is what we would call a holy moment. This is one of those times where you say nothing. You just take it in you. Just observe it. Peter thought it would be a good moment to say a few words so he says alowed. It's good we are here. Let's fill three tents one for jesus one for moses and one for elijah and one of the gospel tells us this he said because he did not know what to say. Here's the thought. When do you don't know what to say. Don't see anything there's an old proverb it's not a biblical one. But it has some truth in it which basically says when you don't know what to say don't say anything because it's better to be thought of bull than to open your mouth and dispel all doubt. Well peter blurted that out. You almost wonder if moses turned jesus and said who who is that guy. See with you At same indicator gets a little excited. You know it's good we are here. Peter blurts out on another occasion. Jesus revealed to peter the fact that he was going to be martyred for his faith. Peter immediately pivots over to john says well. What about this man in other words. okay. I wanna be bartered. I'm not sure. I'm really excited about that. What about him. And jesus gives an amazing response. He says if i choose to keep him alive until april returned. What is that to you as for you follow me. Am i speaking to somebody right now. That has just wondered why their life has gone the way it's gone. Maybe you've looked at somebody else's life and he said lord why. Why are they being blessed. More than i'm being blasted. Why did this tragedy befall me. A why are these things happening in. Here's responsive christ to you what does that tell you you just follow me. Listen peter was not only inquisitive. He had initiated it on one occasion. Jesus said who two men say. That i am and peter says well they say a lot of things. But i'll tell you why you think you are in jesus said okay go ahead. He says. I think you're the crisis son of the living. God and jesus says flesh and blood did not reveal that to you peter but my father who is in heaven then he says your name is peter and upon this rock i will build my church not appear of but on the statement that peter made. You're the christ is son of the living. God churches built on the foundation of simon. Peter got help us if it is. The church is built on christ himself that chief cornerstone but peter got it right and then jesus went on to talk about the fact that he was gonna be betrayed in crucified and peter begins to rebuked jesus right to his face he rebukes him saying be that far from you lord and and she said get behind me satan for you do not understand the things of god so on one hand peter was being led by the father and what he said and on the other. Can the devil got the details and he made that statement discouraging christ from going to the crucifixion flawed character. Yes according to church tradition. Peter did die the death of a martyr and according to church tradition. Peter was crucified upside down but he was faithful to the end. Oh sure he denied the lord but he was there with jesus in the last hours of his earthly ministry along with the apostle john and though he had his lapse in this setback he also had his mega comeback when jesus recommissioned him again. Yeah he was part of god's family and then we have andrew the brother of peter. They couldn't be any more different. If peter was like your uncle at the family reunion. Andrews like to quiet cousin while peter's talking andrews clearing the table working behind the scenes in fact it was actually andrew who brought his brother peter to jesus and john one forty one we read the first thing andrew did after he realized that jesus was the messiah was he brought his brother peter and he said to him we found the messiah and he brought him to jesus. And that's what andrew was always doing bringing people to jesus and what a great thing to be known for bringing people to. Jesus you remember the story of the feeding of the five thousand and the people were hungry. And they didn't know what to do and andrew went and found a little boy with some loaves and fishes and he brought him to jesus and you know we give a lot of attention to the simon peter's of the world but we must not forget the fact that there are also the andrus remember if there were no andrews there would be no simon peter's people that work in quietly behind the scene Today on a new beginning pastor greg. Laurie is discussing family. Relationships are earthly family matters and heavenly family matters. And there's more to come as this study continues. If you missed any part of our discussion today you can hear a replay the presentation by going to harvest dot. Org just look for the title a new kind of family. And then it's a real privilege to have shannon bream with us today. She's of course anchor of fox news at night on the fox news channel and she's also author of the brand new book we're making available called the women of the bible. Speak patrick shannon. I was wondering. I mean you're on the fox news channel. It's a number one news channel really in the country right now and and you're very open about your faith and we really appreciate that. You're really a bright light and you do such a great job as a journalist as a these castor in in also your coverage of the supreme court and explaining things that are happening there that are not always clear to everyone including me. But i wanted to ask you wonder if some of the challenges you face like in the job you have other fox news Maybe some of the difficulties you deal with just two in in the workplace or challenges or opportunities. Tell us a little bit what. It's like to be a believer in that setting. Well i think anybody working in media will tell you it's twenty four seven Pretty much you gotta love what you do and i do. I feel very blasting in very grateful to be on this assignment forever. How long the lord has me here But but the truth is especially over the last year. We've all had to look and watches. People around us in our own. Lives have suffered great loss. People have been brightened. They have been very ill. We've lost people. We love people have lost jobs. They don't know how they'll hold their household together. I mean it's been an incredibly painful time. We've had unrest over racial divisions and you know cries for reconciliation where that is such an open wound in this country as well. We have so many things that need so much healing and so much attention So there are times reporting. The news gets very difficult because you see such destruction and such heartbreak in over the last year. What that has made me do is root deeper into my faith. I've always been somebody who tries to spend time in the word every day. I know i need the equipping. I need the forgiveness every day but really over the last year and a half or so. It's been okay my priorities. This when i get out of bed the very first thing i do is i pray i get in the word. I don't turn on my phone do that. You know. I'm off to the races with emails and texts and people who need things and you know things pulling at us and bad news but i realized last year. No i can't wake up and turn that on see how many more people have died. How many jobs have been destroyed. Cities that have been burned people who are hurting. I've got to be in the word. I so for me. It was a wakeup call that i had found comfort in things that are not the lord and anything short of him on is not him. It's not where. I need to be rooted and laying treasurer so it was a good wakeup call for me to remind myself that i need to spend that time in the word and routing in that every day then i can take on the rest of the lord has planned and i can be somebody with a longer fuse and more compassionate. More empathetic And not rattled by the things of this world because it will all pass away so you just heard it tilts. Here's the lady who's in the epicenter of news. And does she starts her day off not with their phone. Not with the news but with the good news with the word of god. That's a good example for all of us in a good way to get ready for the dane. Get yourself prepared for the challenges that come your way. I think that's excellent advice. Yeah absolutely pasha. Greg is speaking with shannon bream today about her new book called. The women of the bible speak is full of revealing insight on women who made a difference women who are inspiring examples for us to follow in fact. The subtitle of the book is the wisdom of sixteen women and their lesson for today s. This encouragement will be glad to send a book.

You told me up for the interview you interview. Eighteenth Eighteenth Place rotter as I told you when you're Chad Reed do last Anaheim special. Yeah a special Just just different things different emotions through the year. You know like I feel like up until this point. I really haven't haven't dealt with that you know like kind of like I've been really really struggling to the just the even know how to put it into words to be honest with you just like you. Just it feels different. It feels like like off the bike. I've we've had the best time I feel like I've signed more autographs than ever. I've said Hi to more people have taken more pitches in probably may be overextended myself in that area area And just whenever I jump on a motorcycle I've just felt horrible like just my mind hasn't been in place This week it felt a little better. You know like I felt like I at least do the jumps went through the whoops fast. Couple Times But I gotTA stop doing every lap of the night. Show 'cause I my. My fitness is not it. It's not up to par. I can't yeah can't be doing that. I need to save a little bit for the main event so I just I see clipping stuff more than I've seen you clip stuff ever like just a small stuff. I mean just from what I watched you your whole career. I'm like he doesn't looks move now and I don't feel smooth you know like like I sure I'm not in the greatest shape that I've ever been in and you know it's been rough off season faulk when you like. You said like when you clip every jump and hit every the whole and do every lap It doesn't it doesn't make it any easier sir. Yeah I mean tonight I was in position. I think to transfer pretty easily lost the front crashed And then yeah then lost a transfer spot on the left to So yeah I just honestly just just I think I just need to keep my emotions intact and then I think as the year goes on that gets better It is it is it is. It's like at the end of the day like I truly care. You know like I love it. It's been my life and I think that I always knew it was gonna be difficult but it's it's way way harder than I ever imagined to be. Honest with you So yeah I mean it's just you got I think sometimes you have to be honest with yourself and for me it's acknowledging that it's not the easy And that this week I didn't ride it didn't train I tried to. I tried to put myself in in a in a better. You know emotional state And I felt like that helped me this week so we had a Lotta rain in. NC This week so it wasn't like I was really missing anything but I didn't do. Jim didn't didn't do anything I just worked on myself My wife had surgery on Monday. And then I was babysitting her too but I think for the most part like what I needed to do. I kind kind of like I felt like I got A. I got a hold of that Last week you were like had only WanNa talk looked at me like I I can honestly I feel good about saying I've never quit. It never ever quit and last week like straight up. I didn't feel good on the racetrack. Felt dangerous. I felt like I wasn't safe out there And I just I. I couldn't wait to ride off the track I just didn't want to be out there And as much as that as painful as that is to say it's the truth then I feel like you gotta be truthful and I think that like one thing I want to overcome. I just want to overcome that and go out and and race and have fun because I still think that I can. You know like shadows shows on the podium last year you know. Can I put him an issue. Who knows but I think that it's it's it? I'm a hell of a lot better than an eighteenth place guy But but I need I need to find myself again out on the track and taking a few hit a beatings over the over. The offseason doesn't help so all in all ought to this week was a it was a better week. Maybe just try to somehow take some time for yourself to get mentally ready. Maybe you're not doing that. And then yeah I just know that your reflexes and in your muscle memory will come back. I guess right. Yeah and it's like it has like you know leading some laps in the last chance qualifier. it's never ideal to go to those things but I guess the positive is on the podium and I got to say thank you you know. So that's that's I take that as a win. Draw Anaheim favorite moments. I don't know I could. I could see you telling me the very first one when you came here. And everybody's ass but then I can tell. I can think that you might want to tell me. The last one on the cow we which came out of nowhere like they're both awesome so favorite Mannheim memory. I would say that you know your first win obviously is always always special But I mean you're you're on the team that time like it came so easy like when you picture your first win in in America Erica in in in Anaheim stadium. You don't picture you know riding away out front and just literally one of the easiest races of your life so So I would say say that. Though it was special it was it was surreal What was it fourteen fourteen? I think I had a anaheim to in three my favorite ruins of maybe ever Just because they were they will serve different. You know like they were Anaheim to. I came from maybe sixth seventh eighth Just inside the top ten past everybody You know our V. Done Stu And one and then the next one two weeks later I came back and pretty much. I didn't hole shot. But I think I went to the lead right away and led all twenty laps In and kind of you know one one from from the beginning so that those two wins were really really special. Just because Ed already at that point I was thirty to to come back on. I'm ever gave me actual real goosebumps around like this fucking guy like he's doing it again like you said you pass. I remember you put a sweep pass on donder or something up for the lead maybe I don Don Jr was Actually winning in Las the fraud So Yeah Dunn Dunn Jr actually was leading says Dunn's made had it easy. I didn't have to pass him that everybody else. I had to add to come through The the first time when like you said came easy and honestly all of us on take time. We're like this guy is GonNa look like he's good right now but he's doesn't eat seasoning like AC. He's GonNa Win Right now so almost like Oh yeah there it is like we. We weren't surprised at all. Uh it kind of looked like a jet lawrence ride until until the Polo Guy ran into some issues there at the end. But you know it was is like you said I mean we had a full head of steam. You know like I mean you're a member and like for me. It was like we went to Europe. Nobody nobody else went I won the first race in in the Netherlands and then got taken out by It's kind of like I was like all fired up for two weeks. I think it was like a two week turnaround. Whatever it was You know so I came here and then like for me it was. It was the rivalry like Ricky had just come off twenty four now and I was you know like I was the the confident little kid that was that was like a man. I can't believe anybody would let you know. How would you let guy you know win? Twenty four racing and I I was guilty of that but a couple of a couple of years later we did it to me actually the next year but yeah so I just I just remember being just full full pissing win and just coming out and just like dude. I'm GonNa win this thing and I went to Europe. And just you know just like I mean you're young and you're going for it you know like Villanova's one is titled last year and Ferries on the walks all the time and chats faster than every single day of the test track so I think he's GonNa be up there. That was sort of our thinking on the team right but hey I can't wait to see STU stupid you down On one of these videos he's been doing he'd been watching these I I actually. I didn't see Saint Louis I saw Anaheim won It's good I I. It's funny because you know like where he said that he would do that. One I told these guys I'm like dude. You totally quad. That like like. I don't know why somebody's not doing it. the face was pretty shitty but still would've seatbelts crap out of that thing And at least done at nineteen times and maybe the twentieth was upset but one gets but I but for sure you refer sure he does it so yeah it was funny when when he said that it it was it was Kinda like it was funny because I you I'd already had the conversation like I know stupid. Jump that damn thing you know and so I think that's I I think he's back. I think it's healthy. That he's that he's out and he's he's seemingly sitting on the couch and enjoying doing these things so I gotta I gotTa Call Him. Actually I got. I got something that I wanna ask him to do. So maybe later in the season you'll see something that could be fun if if he agrees that'd be cool. All right. Thanks thanks all right. Justin Brayton Bud Man you working with bud man but man's my a guy we we We go way back two thousand four. We were teammates in arena. Cross and Actually Brad Hegseth with just sitting here. We're all just reminiscent about some old times. See those is two guys. I was teammates with him at four. And two of my favorite guys in the pits. Things that you probably can't talk about. It was unbelievable. I learned a lot of what to do. And what what not to do. Probably more whatnot to hey The race for yourself Got Up from a crash. Got Into qualifying spot. Didn't have a great gate pick didn't get the greatest start and again just like Saint Louis. We talked about it. It's so normally. It's so intense out there Yourself mookie everybody going at it it was. It was pretty good. Yeah Yeah it was definitely intense. I wasn't really in that fight as much as I was in saint. Louis I was kind of outside of it and kind of worked my way to it. I think I was eleven or twelve on the first lap. Got By few guys got into eighth and pass Barsha with Maybe halfway or something and then I started to come up on Zack Anderson. AC At the end but Yeah overall probably my best race of the year And Yeah I'm I'm stoked it was good. I know you like to hear this made a big bike. Change this week and It was really good in in the main event. Like I just feel like I've set my bike up a certain way and then about halfway through the main. It's like it kind of goes away so set it up for the end in Yeah I think it worked. I felt good. I wonder if Osborne adopted Zakho now and he said something about the software and Saint Louis in this third lots of differences in the bike. You notice that too. Yeah Yeah for sure the tracks I I actually think the tracks have been awesome like the layouts of the way. They're building stuff. The the I said whoops didn't have a starter whoop which Kinda like it's something different. I throw some different at us. and then some rhythms. You can do different stuff. Like I'm I'm stuck on. How the tracks them but for sure they break down? I mean if you go walk the track are now. It's it's GNARLY. I agree that it's a really good start to the season for all the designers Coming in coming into this race did you. Were you like next week triple crown obviously so this for this this race for yourself. Are you like Hey I get on the box I can prove from Saint Louis like what kind of was going into the race. We're we're at Yeah I've just been in that fight. You know in from second or third all back to eighth or ninth has been really the same speed is just all about track position and I definitely definitely feel like I'm better with clean air the front so I think one of these nights when I get some really good track position which like first or second I definitely think I can get on the boxer or win. One of these he's I looked at lap times in the guys actually said I was a fast guy on the track through the middle of the race for three or four laps and So that's pretty cool. That's promising you know and so yeah I'd I also feel really good on eight eight seven it's not ideal but also if you look at the field it's like all right the seventeen rounds It's not my first Rodeo idea. So like I I get it. I knew later on in the season. You still have to be there. And that's when You know maybe we can start clicking awesome podiums. That's intense man. That's the only word I have when I think of the series so far it's just intense and you're back there but it's like you're right. He really well. I feel like a big battle exchange. Er guys why got we're watching you and Bam Bam. I'm good at big battle. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. They're like halfway through or the first quarter of the race. We were yeah he had his spots. And then I had my spots in once I got Bam Bam Bam the guy that you can pass and then you have to get away like right away like so I knew I was much better in the second set of whoops so I made the past ask a couple of times before the Wolfson's like I'm GonNa hit these things so good and I drilled them that lab and I was gone. Yeah I knew I I You can't give him a an open door that's for sure Next week triple crown always looking forward to that right. You've done really well these things. Yeah gotTa get good starts but overall phoenix has been awesome to meet for men pretty much my whole career three power. Yeah that was the transfer of power not yet. Yeah two thousand fourteen I think was But the whoops stay together normally they have a really nice rhythm lands where you can do different stuff. So yeah I I hope to get good start. I mean that's really the key thing triple crowns and I I'd love to when it next weekend or for sure on the podium. I think there can be a network. Kenny and I are both up there and I think that'd be so cool. Nine practice sessions eight of them. I'm have seen Adamson's hello on top. The one that hasn't was Marty Dude He Geneva Marty was here. Tonight was up for a little bit. I said to the guys awesome like dude. That's how he's writing and gene and now you know why yeah now. You know how he's how he was gone. He brought it. I need and he's loose. He's loose but he brought it. He's loose you had to be so so stuck. I said to you earlier when you came up. I haven't checked twitter but I'm sure you were just blowing where you incredible. Yeah I thought we were GONNA top and and honestly h Shit with hail early and just parts and bikes everywhere and he got up dead dead last and he worked his way to thirteenth like he like he charged heart. So good job for Mardi for you guys. Yeah real good day for us. Yeah why get. You had a good day too so happy about that before. I let you go of course La Honda World Ridge line I mean. How good is that truck you know? What hegseth actually flew flew in yesterday and it gets in the truck and he's like man this? This thing is actually pretty sweet and I told him like I love that thing. I seriously do. We went to a team dinner last night with that thing in the parking space and Kenny shows up with his big old lifted truck. He's got a parkway out in the boonies so I love it honestly that noise. And how's that mileage rocks him. Yeah exactly how's that house gas prices antastic truck. La Honda will go get you a reggie fantastic good to hear all right Brandon Good luck next week. Did Not pick you and Paul Fantasy. Because I'm saving you for Glendale as well. That no pressure Gotcha Gotcha. Would you scored some big points. I don't you know what I am what I did I go. Yeah you did really well but I still think you're GonNa do better at Glendale. Gotcha Gotcha Adamson through. Look I am not what you wanted but a lot more a lot. More to look forward to. Yeah I think even I mean even in practice today like as much as we were like focus online obviously Mardi getting the fastest time. I it up qualifying fast. But I've caught bypassed plenty of times that great and I just fighting something today. I don't know what it was. We've we've made quite a few changes the biking you know you just always on these four fifty. It's like growing up to me. I always thought you get setting right. And you're good you get a setting and you would. I think that's how it works but you always have to evolve changing. It's gotTa make sure you're going in the right way and for whatever reason I just did not joe with some of the changes that we made in some of the things I was doing as well so it's just one set up. Yeah quite a bit and I just I just struggled and just was fighting the bike and then that made me like get super tight and then it's like you make a decision at certain point. It's like do I push over the limit and put this thing in the stands or you know get eighth or whatever so yeah it was intense man. It's gnarly right. Yeah it is is it is but I think everybody like it's cool in the class. I feel this mutual respect. Everybody has kind of like I know Zach and I've got into it a couple of times and that stuff but for the most part like everybody's pretty so I enjoy even when you get your ass kicked Jason stuff seconds. Somebody's like no. Let's go whatever exactly and they both ran it on me deep and it's like you know it is what it is cool so yeah stoked to be here but I just I can't be that good and then just that result it's just you know it'd be different if I was still like working into it and like it's a pretty good result right. The guys that beat me. They're all really good but for me with where I'm at I just don't feel it should be they're well. Let's focus on the positive. You're the fastest. I in eight hundred nine one weren't it was Mardi. Yeah here's T- way Yup. Yeah Marty was Marty was unreal today Eh. KT At night. I know some people like to say. KTM's can't go through the woods you see Mardi own my God. Wow lots of send their. Wow Yeah let you go. Thanks Buddy. uh-huh see next week. Yeah thank you all right. Martine Davalos. Look you broke the streak and if there was one guy in qualifying that Adam said he was perfectly fine to give up his streak of fastest qualifiers. It was you so congratulations on that. That's that's cool though. Yeah it was really cool. I mean honestly I just I wrote smooth. We figure some things out on the bike. I have been having some clutch clutch problems. The first two rounds in writing sketchy you know so I just told myself I just really need to settle down you know. There's a long season in good advice. Yeah Doc I don't know how many lives I have. You know so I just I really need to settle down in Rhode. Well today I felt like there was a few mistakes. A few out of control moments but the track was gnarly early and I love when our big you know like I think that separates people and I think in the main event you can really make up some time and you can really lose some time so I was thumped about the night. Obviously a little hiccup with Justin in the main event my starts are terrible. I you know the bikes got so much power. And I I really need to figure it out You know what to do with a star because in this class. There's so many good guys that you know advice star outside top ten is just going to be hard to kind of come come mm inside of them so I just need to get back and just you know. I think it was important for me to finish this this main event and I you know we just talking about lap times. I ran my fastest lap. Doc was on lap twenty three with a fifty four and I was I was I was good man. I felt solid. I think we're pretty far back. I was so far back that I one point. I thought I was going to get locked on like three or four but You know I just down in points points and points. That's all it matters. We have so many races and I ended up coming to thirteen so it was good. I don't know what I do on the on the fantasy crush. Yeah you did. Did you pick yourself. I take myself I told my fucking go seventy to get double points. That was pretty easy. the qualifying. I in that in that Second Session Rosh yourself is a cool. It's awesome. I mean just know that I have the speed to ride with the top guys. It's it's it's amazing Obviously they really have to throw down when you want to go that fast and it was. It was awesome to just just feel that you know I knew I was. I was good in the woods. I knew I was. I put a solid lap and you know there's just a confidence booster you know but still we all know you know I can do a one lab and a lot of people can do. I've been in. This class is about twenty five laps that we need to do. So I got to regroup practice on some stars this week because we got a triple crown. So it's GonNa be all about stars that we and you're getting feeling better with the bike. Yeah definitely bikes coming around. We've worked on some stuff. They discover an issue with the clutch that I had. And now we're moving in the right direction you know going to go home in trying to sprint this week. I'm a little under the weather. This weekend. yeah I was just able to salvage some good points and they would ragged. I was first three rounds and loved the tracks. There've been technical. Good guy like you. Different combos big stuff big whoops. I've been a fan of the first three rounds. I love it you know I was a little I I was really worried about that. Split Lane on press. Stay when when I did it but you know it was very very good for racing sometimes. Sounds you don't want to follow a guy you know you just want to change it up and you just don't you know there's a few places that he just doesn't open up and not just made You know to be honest with you. I pass four people. Just you know taking my timing timing cutting down in Slig- you can open up some turns so it was it was awesome. I liked the track. Allot it was. It was pretty tight by man it. It was good for racing the next step for you. Just get a good start and get a solid six or seven plays with no incidents every weekend. You've been very exciting to watch good and bad. Yeah I mean you know I you know. I'm sketchy. Sometimes I make it interesting but like I said this is a long season and I want to be in one piece. You know. It's important for me to finish every single round and I think I need to. Sometimes I need to take a deep breath. Just kind of control myself There are times that are not. I'm I'm not gonNa feel the best in. That's when I need it really you know settle back. It's cool to sit on top of the Board and Nice comeback in the main. Thanks man thank you our exclusive with Zach. Osborne exclusive interview interview. Zach Osborne. Hey we had you on the fly enough. I really don't know what was going on. During the day I struggled in the woods like even do what about the heat. You know what was going on at night. I mean the heat. I got dominated the first three laps by like eight guys in really made the main but nothing like practices carried all right on that heat where we were all worried about. I was nervous. I mean I'm not GONNA lie. We threw the kitchen sink at the bike before the main. And obviously we've been riding in Florida all winter and and the dirt's really good in this third maybe medium or or less than medium and I've been struggling for Phil. Obviously Saint Louis was way better under for me. I felt a lot better in coincidence. No it's legit so we made a little break through their Before the main tonight with just kind of lightning my bike up softening ended up a lot and really giving me a little bit more feel and then Obviously got off to a good start had some battles and whatnot road tense Anderson Acu all going out. Yeah Coop is there I mean it was. It was pretty Pretty Wide Open there at about ten minutes over like four of a stacked on top of each other. But it's good good racing. I mean I I was definitely nervous before the main like I. I've never been that bad during the day in my life and there was no real explanation like Dr Fish looked really good until I would be like dead even with P. One till we got to the second set of whoops and then I would lose two seconds from that point over the dragon to finish like it's insane so offer setup help for that much better and then obviously the whoops Kinda beat out and you could jump a little bit or scan. They just weren't so gnarly But but man that dirt here has been like extremely slick like waste liquor than ever remember it being on the lights by. Obviously I don't have any sort of data from here last this year and I think that hurts me a little bit. But I'm glad to be out of here safe and with you know a good finish tonight. Make it a little mini recoup their and then. He picked it up the last few laps. The APP I pumped up a little bit the last couple of APPs about with Jason. They're pretty heavy. And that kind of blew me up a little bit and then I made a good run at him and then I think he was smelling blood in the water with Kenny and and And he went for him really good ride by all three of those guys but I feel like You know as far as turn around an epic one for my career. You must have been ready to a jump off the truck. After the heat I was I told my whole shot tonight. Yeah legit like legit shot tonight and That's hard to do. I mean I seem to remember remember like last year that happened to you also like maybe not denied but you got jack early extremely bad it was really bad. I told my wife when I left a motorhome in after the heat is like if I get in the top ten. It's going to be like a win so I'm happy with the fourth that I wish I could have gotten on the podium but I was it was a nice comeback from what we've been seeing all day I like the track for surrounds. Maybe not so much you but I thought I thought they've been really good now. This one was awesome Saint Louis was awesome. The first one I was really sick so could've been the best track ever and I'll probably would hate it They're doing a good job. I think that the bikes have come a long ways. In the the I think the techniques change even in sort of in the last two or three years how we do things and and How the race plays out and stuff so I think they're doing really really good job of trying to meet that you know? I think last year and the year before the tracks were getting to mellow just getting to either going up to speed up and just too easy so it's a nice change nice work nice comeback. I don't do any schools. It's not exclusive. Now you're late Louis late to the party may hey so when when am I staying in the motorhome. Do we have a plan yet. Outdoor outdoor sometime when the kids. Aren't there okay perfect. Kids come every super dose. No but I told you you. Won't they experienced the grill out the cornhole. TV outside like campfires awesome smallest. Are you going to promise that right here outdoors okay. Well it'll probably gonNA pick like diller something. Aren't you where you don't want to drive an hour to okay we'll just watch hurling highlights sounds good. Dan Lewis will be there thanks.

"From divide so win soon. A way to be selfies. A with a gentle self isolating is a little bit lonelier today for me A friend and colleague for a number of years who's counting passed away this weekend. I seen him last about a year ago and the physical toll that his three decades long fight against multiple sclerosis had taken on him was evident as was his brennan's and is funny which were undimmed and It struck me that A lot of people saw him starring in a television series but weren't familiar with the range of just exactly how funny he could be. I had that privilege. Because i worked with him for six years on a common group called the credibility gap. We were on the radio. The radio radio just like i am now nutty And we had. What i thought was the best job in the world but i was in my twenties. Three ten minute shows a day making fun of the news. Yeah i know. It sounds crazy now. But i was in my twenties as where we all and it seemed easy and David made it a whole lot easier. David lander talking about david l lander. He was As i said on twitter this weekend The guy who taught me really it didn't teach me anything he just was the best example. I've ever seen of you feed him a premise. You say something. That's in the news or something that you noticed and before gravity has taken hold of that ball you've thrown in the air. He hit it out of the park. He's come up with the perfect punchline. He was a and this is not meant in any derogatory way. He was a punchline machine. He just had that gift of turning just that little bit and I'm sorry to say that. Even though i did collect an awful lot of the material we did Together along with michael mckean in the late. Richard beebe a lot of it is inaccessible to me right now. Because it's analog and i'm all digital you know so i'm gonna bring you today Two or three of the that. I think showcase david to the greatest effect and There there may be more later time and also on today's show lest you think it's about the past. There is a song of the season and of the moment coming up so stick around for that now. This first credibility gap piece is kind of a great example of how a comedy idea evolves and finally devolves there was a comedy group when we were plying our trade those way more successful than we were. I won't mention their names. And they were known not behind their backs out of their own mouths. I think the memorable memorable interview with a california alternative weekly for borrowing the material of other comedy acts and i'm using maybe three or four sets of air quotes around borrowing. So we david and michael. And i and richard in in our group decided to write a piece for our stage act seen by dozens that basically satirized that act. That was much more successful than we were because they were stealing other people's material and so we did a riff off. What was then. The the most well known classic comedy bit in the world. Abbott and costello who i and we did it as kind of in the style of that other act and you'll hear the punch line which was basically the the pointed comment at the end that brought it around to what this was really about. Well we started doing it on stage and we shortly learned that the audience didn't care about the the trappings of this other. Act that we had laid on this bit. They liked the bit for itself. So we stopped doing the trappings and just did the bit straight and by straight. I don't mean and We were asked if it could be filmed for film and the guy was making which w- for which he was filming a lot of local comedy acts around la doing their quote best bit unquote. And then there were there. Were going to drape some casual storyline very tentatively connecting police. Bits sure nobody else was filming us so to from that moment to today when you go on now youtube you'll see the only visual version of that piece as it appears in that movie in its entirety except for the punch line here it is ladies and gentlemen punchline and all the following incident takes place in the advertising department of the los angeles times yellow louise yes to that rock and roll promoter ever show what rock and roll pomona.

If i could write. i wouldn't have had to steal his fifth and now ladies and gentlemen use of the olympic movement. Jim all the third well. What are the olympics. Going to take away from the athletes next year. How about sex. According to the telegraph in london athletes face a sex ban. At next year's olympics after organizers announced any physical contact between them would be prohibited to avoid the spread of gerona virus will of course olympic village during game time has become a torius for casual relationships between competitors hundreds of thousands of condoms are usually distributed at the games and yet we don't know what the official no we don't but tokyo twenty twenty. This week unveiled plans for athletes to sign a code of conduct that includes avoiding physical contact or speaking loudly and requires them to wear masks when not training or competing. I recently played basketball with a mask on. You can do that it can. it can be done. Anyone found in breach of the code could face punishment athletes. Traveling to japan must produce a negative cova test taken less than seventy two hours before their arrival and they will be tested every ninety six to one hundred twenty hours during their stay at the games and as we discussed last week w asked to leave the country as soon as their events are over no sightseeing penalties for noncompliance have yet to be determined To be a fly on the wall of those meetings and it will be drawn up in conjunction with the international olympic committee. Tom international amount. This is not a law but we need to be careful and asked people to lay out precautions. Said the chief. Executive of tokyo two thousand twenty overseas spectators will have to observe rules ranging from mask wearing and a ban on cheering to keeping their ticket stubs to help contact tracing. Why have a crowd. If there's no cheering a we have the sound effect of the crowd. But the the fake crowd in the stands doesn't look right organizers decided imposing a two week quarantine. Visiting fans was caught impractical. They're going to ask them instead to download tracking apps and abide by rigorous safety guidelines concrete measures to determine how many fans will be able to attend. We'll be decided in the spring taking into account. Infection rates around the world muto. They head of the olympic committee announced that these measures would be place. He said what the may would make the game's different but expressed hope they could still be held in a celebratory atmosphere. Just without the cheering. In the thing. It will be simple rather than festive. He says a successful vaccine of course could render many of the countermeasures. Being discussed by games organizers obsolete but muto said regarding the vaccine at the moment is not available yet what might happen. What could happen is unclear and organizers the delayed olympics have declined to confirm widely circulated reports into pan that the cost of the postponement will be about three billion dollars estimates have been published by japan's top circulation newspapers as well as the national broadcasters all assigning similar figures and unidentified sources close to the games and they should know fischel cost. His pudding is putting on the games. At twelve point. Six billion the government last year said is probably twice that much all but five point. Six billion is public money. But hey it's a movement and we all need one every day now for this next little while you may think you're hearing puppy dogs barking in the background. You're just imagining it. I was the first non news person to join the credibility gap. That was the name of this. Three shows a day project. I was joining a group of people who had been doing the regular newscasts on the station before it changed to this new format and after a while they were looking to add some new blood and i had man i had new blood then and so i joined and then there was a woman who's doing some of the female voices on our shows named at the time was named sally smaller and she had and this will take you back in time. This was before answering machines kids and there were these things called answering services. Somebody alive person would sit at a switchboard an answer. You know the phones of half a dozen a dozen clients and take a message and then they'd call you or you'd call them sorry you'd call them and say do i messages and they'd read out your messages and sally said there's this guy at my answering service and when he delivers my messages. He's really funny. You you guys should check him out. And that was david l lander and he joined our show and started coming up with stuff like this. I sports fans days spots with today sports question. Did you know that. Baseball's immoral babe ruth despite a career. Total of seven hundred fourteen home runs a record by the way. Never hit even one home. Run and pittsburgh's beautiful three rivers stadium before you put your thinking cap on but take a look at. What's underneath if you're like me. You're sick and tired spending one to even to a half dollars plus everyday to just to keep your hands neatly trimmed. Of course you could drip out and tune onto a shaggy hippie. Beat but if you'd rather go big lead. Why not do what i do to my son's give me and my wife peg. I keep their heads in tram with electro clip and amazing but practical home hair clip that turns any enroll baba college to prove that electric lip is so easy to operate that even my child can do it. My own son. Skip a sports is here with me in the studio to give his dad that well clip. Look you ready champ. Also ninety okay skipper off. This is if you please fans. I'm getting a thoroughly professional haircut in the privacy of your station. My baba why he's a nine your old boy. Amazing not really. He was eight last year. Thanksgiving fans maybe you noticed that during the simulated dramatization that amazing electric. Those no annoying buzz that it contains no long shot. Cumbersome called the reason as simple as space age science itself. Electro clip uses no electricity. It has no moving parts. There's nothing to wear out. The electric clip is simply a double edged razor blade inside each comb like end of a sturdy plastic frame that polls as it cuts. That's why electric clip gets to the root of good grooming a federal authorities allowed electro clipped to be sold in stores. It might cost you close to ten dollars but now the manufacturers of amazing your clip wanted to skip the high priced middleman and sell directly to. You threw me. That's why until midnight saturday during electro clips. Let's get a heck wake. You pay only five dollars and ninety five cents ten dollars to rush five ninety five or ten dollars for two to dave's clip off a box three nine seven radio city music hall grand central station new york new york one four six seven carson may impair hilton cutting device end up by the way babe rose never hit a home. Run and pittsburgh's beautiful three rivers stadium. No because the stadium wasn't built until twenty three years after the great bambino popped off now news the godly dayline philadelphia. The roman catholic archdiocese of philadelphia has done a spin off. You know like The vernon shirley spun off from happy days like that They're spinning off. Saint john via knee center. That's a behavioral health facility where four decades priests accused of sexually abusing or raping children were sent for evaluation in exchange for its independence is a fifty bed nonprofit psychiatric hospital. The anne the vani center green bay the archdiocese. Twelve million according to arch diocese a dark archdiocese in financial statements published. Just last week. This is from the philly enquirer. The split was effective. Last july. hadn't been widely publicized till now. They're waiting. I guess to live show an archdiocese. Spokesperson said the center officials one of the mental health hospital that has exclusively treated clergy to be financially and administratively independent continuing its mission as a catholic institution in turn. The archdiocese sent an environment. Where was an immediate need for cash that to fund the reconciliation and reparation program started two years ago to financially compensate victims of sexual abuse by priests. See it all works together. It's a system two year old grand jury report on sexual abuse by pennsylvania priests outside philadelphia sharply criticized the yanni center and similar treatment centers elsewhere for doing a shoddy job. Protecting children from predatory priests. That wasn't a mission when a priest denied allegations of sexual abuse usually avoided any diagnosis related to the sexual abuse of children. Report said moreover these institutions focused on clinical diagnosis over actual behavior as reported by the victims. Put plainly these institutions long dirt accused priests provided plausible deniability to the bishops and permitted hundreds of known offenders to return to ministry unquote. They say that it's a bad thing. David shellenberger president of the any center didn't respond to inquiries same with the administrative office of the center and a board member. So it's You know stone over center. This adds to a long run of divestitures by the philadelphia archdiocese. To assist started eight years ago with the sale of villas saint joseph by the sea for four million and the cardinals mansion for ten million the cardinal's mansion ladies and gentlemen. Like you need to have that. Both were undertaken to fill gaping holes in the churches operating budget. Then the archdiocese made a long term lease of its cemeteries to a for profit company for eighty nine million. You don't mind if i just dig up. A couple of these put in a it sold off the churches six nursing homes and one assisted living facility for one hundred forty five million and it's old excess real estate help. The church regained financial stability. Because of you know you know you know and following the release of a report this week on the history of child sexual abuse at the hands of colorado catholic priests that report identified dozens of new survivors and nine new purpose. The archbishop of denver samuel akilah seem to once again downplay the severity of the abuse according to the colorado times record. Of course we've learned this year that you downplay things to avoid panic haven't we. And that we learned they supplemental report released by the colorado attorney. General's office this week followed up this report on clergy sexual abuse in colorado released last year. This report which concludes it almost two year. Investigation into how colorado's three dioceses sheltered abusers over seven decades why that's nearly two decades per dice adelphi additional forty-six abuse survivors. Nine priests that came to light. Since the release of the first report those cases include the late. Reverend charles be woodridge known. I'm reading known as father. Woody long touted by the church as an icon for altruism toward denver's homeless population. also father. joe walsh who sexually abused children living at the sacred heart orphanage in pueblo. Well the parents aren't going to complain. In a letter published on the denver archdiocese website archbishop akilah seemed to diminish the severity of these new findings over eighty five percent of the incidents occurred more than forty years ago. Nearly half the total incidents were committed by one man. Harold white there are no substantiated allegations against any current priests in active ministry. This extensive independent process should remove any cloud of unfair suspicion from our current priests. He said i offer no excuse for the sins of the past but the context of when the abuse happened is important quoting denver archbishop key la news the godly. He's jumping copywriter featured broadcast now. This week has been marked news wise by the continuation of a denial strategy. Both going down. Denial by on the part of president trump Denial that there was any legal. Legitimate election november third. That there is such a thing as president elect and a vice president elect selecting their cabinets. Well the the president selecting announcing the selection of his cabinet and vice president-elect her staff just denying as. I say that the whole thing is happening. And there's a slew of republican officeholders as you know clearing most of congress that have our after their name staying mum when asked for reaction to this display of denial and I i actually thought that. The the fact that president trump president trump's father told them there two kinds of people killers and losers and that he had built his. You're gonna pardon term of art here. His adult personality around the idea of being a winner being only a winner ever meant that undergoing the biggest los in the world on the world stage front of the biggest audience was Maybe an existential threat and that a period of continued and enthusiastic denial. Whatever buddy else recognizes to be What happened is probably the best. We could expect under the circumstances as opposed to if i'm going to be destroyed. Personally i'm taking on with me. You know something like that. So we're we can appreciate good fortune at this point And there are continuing reports of you know people in the white house advisers and the late night friends that he talks to on the phone who were trying to convince him. You know sir. This is great fight. You're putting on but You know it's a certain point. Dot dot dot dot. There's no evidence of that Taking hold with him yet. But i think he he has come to believe that there is some consolation waiting loesch the biggest contest i ever had in my life. I lost a will to find my next age inappropriate wife. I've washed cloud to flood the zone with self generated strife. I lost that chance to prove to my dad really a winner. I lost to rable candidate. Who makes me lose my dinner.

I lost my role model in eric. Dynasties i large the chance to prove that by hand no mussa hold on. Ta gone no way that done because christmas From the home of the homeless. This is lewis show and now ladies and gentlemen don't have to yell. Scientists reveal this week they have solved the mystery of what's killing more than half of the coho salmon in puget sound's urban streams before they can spawn the toxin decimating. The salmon comes from the mix of chemicals that leach from automobile tires and drain into streams. Where never it rains. Which had never does there. And that's Researches at the university of washington tacoma and washington state university at pileup palo specifically the culprit is a molecule related to a preservative that keeps tires from breaking down too quickly. Just breaking down quickly enough. This according to a study published in the journal science their slogan. What do we know quote. Most people think that we know what chemicals are toxic. All we have to do is control. The amount of those chemicals to make sure water quality is fine said the co senior author but in fact Animals are exposed to this giant chemical soup. And we don't know many of the chemicals in it even our unquote go. Ho- salmon spend the first year of their lives in freshwater streams before swimming out to sea where they spend most of their lives only a tiny tiny fraction of the population returns to the birth streams to spawn before dying. Don't tell them they'd never do it. Am i going to spawn next thing. You know i'm dead for years. Scientists have known the mini returning salmon. Were dying before they could spawn especially after a big rain. Oh there's a clue no one knew it was killing the coho. Researchers began studying the water. Quality of the creeks couldn't be explained by temperatures how dissolved oxygen or any known contaminants such as highs zinc level. Cities co senior author. Then we found that storm water. Runoff could recreate the symptoms and the acute mortality starting with a mix of a couple thousand chemicals found in stormwater runoff researchers compared water from creeks where salmon were dying to identify common trends by sectioning the tire where particle solution according to different chemical properties. They began to identify which ones were toxic to salmon. In the lab refining process researchers were able to whittle down the toxin list to one highly toxic chemical called six p. p. d. lou that kills large fish quickly and has found on every single busy world in the road. It's like a preservative for tires. Similar to how food preservatives. Keep food from spoiling too quickly as a six. Pd helps tires last by protecting them from ground level ozone ozone down there great pollutants emitted by cars react in the sunlight. Six pd reacts with ozone before it reaches the rubber when it reacts with ozone it's transformed into multiple chemicals including six ppd coin on the toxic chemical responsible for killing salmon. Hey it could be a cure for covid nineteen o when own. It's like quite now that it's known to kill coho. Salmon researchers intend to understand why this chemical is so toxic. Good luck boys and girls because we want it to be. I guess the answer because we have dominion also new research shows that humans are taking a greater toll on killer whale populations than previously believed between pollution overfishing and impacts with vessels out. It doesn't look good. Most common human related causes of death include infectious disease. You're welcome asked. The indians the native americans. Malnutrition congenital defect induced by chemical pollution blunt force trauma from boats strikes and ingested fishhooks. It's a nice life. They're having right now. These cases represent otherwise preventable preventable deaths the can be reduced through further research and effort. In the meantime orcas are calling us killer humans. So it's it's it's fitting at some recompense. We can do least gentlemen because we got dominion now the The the daily three days three times a day broadcast at the credibility app did Way back in the late late sixties We're as i say about the the the news and you couldn't just on the spur of the moment. Keep making up. Different characters as stories appear so Willy nilly not through any discussion. We had or you know meeting nudged. Let's decide what to do about that. We started evolving and creating characters. That could be used in particular kinds of stories. David lander david l lander came up with this character lands peoples who is a A rather delicate adolescent His father was police chief in the local town and these characters figured in new stories about what today we would call toxic masculinity. I mean the kitchen there. Oh thank goodness. You're home brad. I fix the leaky faucet but now the cat won't come near me too bad. I've got something important to tell you.

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 2

"I don't remember. I I it was one. I can't think of the name of it though. So I'm not a doctor. That's why. Paging Dr Battaglia. That's why you didn't want to. As part of a lot of doctoring seems complicated. I don't I don't need that on all that. Dr all damn I thought I had a bright future. And then I I realized a little bit different than the way. I was playing doctor. Now, did she say it that imagine someone that people that'd be posturing doctors just imagine they don't you know, they'll know what they're doing. They just sitting around like acting as though their doctors and a union go in there, and they operate that's probably one of those things you should probably double check it. People fake being doctoral of operating people. Yeah. That idea channel versus show. Jay, you saw catch me if you can too many times. No, no. Right. I will show you during the break them and show you something about history you go trip trip. Watch to watch what I show you right here. Cocco noodle doing the morning. Ha same to you. So yeah, we went to a game on Friday night, watched him lose to the bucks. As though it was a tight game was tied. Everything was even the tight box that we were sitting in at some point time. So I took my kids my family more. I've Jennifer my two kids and family. Thank you. Of course, we are as we walked in. We saw Raj and Chris and everybody knows that the family and high and everybody, and so my kids want to get something to eat so Raj volunteered along with Jennifer to go five food for my kids who are hungry. There are six six and nine years old soon to be seven to nine starving to death. I had already told them we're not stopping we need to get to the game. We can't stop. We'll get something in a stadium and get something. Our goes by. They come back. There's no food. There's alcohol. You don't say oh alcohol. He was good alcohol though. No food. He was charged us. It makes you get some food. Oh, yeah. I got a full watch out, man. He leaves. They go away for forty five to an hour. Come back with alcohol. They don't walk around the whole damn arena. She told me went downstairs cheat bore because it was like twenty seven dollars. If you go down go down there. We got about fifty dollars worth of alcohol. You know, my girl right lethal as eat. Remember you? She hosted up. She's got hand. Yes. Even think about two two young kids. He wants more concerned about poisoning his sliver. It can I offer something here. This is your fault for trusting him to come back with a minute drive. This is your fault for look you don't send him to go take care of something like that. But I just assumed he would though to be honest. By topic came up about getting the kids food, and he was like can we work out? So that I go Raj. You should take Jen and go find it because I knew this would be an amazing bit. It is a bit because they regard for an hour, but goes everywhere. Food everyone in the suite was saying like has you seen Raj? Now, he's been gone for a little bit. It's okay. That we find believable. Yeah. Great drinks at a great price. And there is one problem there vegan. So. Yeah. It's a big a problem. I found food in about ten minutes down the stairs. I went down the stairs on one of the level found them phone. I got him vegan vegetable sushi Rothe. Oh, it was right before we took the group picture and speaking to the group picture, you might have seen on social media and Roger's gonna put it up at Keyshawn on Instagram right now. But if you see that group picture of all of his in the sweet, you know key. I gotta give you credit. You like those dinosaurs that can camouflage it can't be seen because you can't see you in the picture probably taking. In the picture because you came back for it to several of them. They all the same. Right, right. There's probably because you didn't have a flash where we did. With flashed on those for some reason missed you because I was pushed out on the edge. Because Chris was so why I haven't really can't buy diesel. You should play you play this game with your kids this morning on the way to school try to find Keyshawn, where's Keyshawn in the picture? And those who listeners that clearly foul me in the other group picture. I do not know the couple that you speak of. But they wanted to know us. Yeah. I think so it was looking for a team effort there. Travis. Where's this at? Sweet list. Well, what are you saw? Watching the game. No hard to miss. We gotta tell me this. This is not this is not safe for the year. How hard being no I'm saying you gotta tell me during the break. I will. I will. Well, I missed that. When you listen to ks p in Los Angeles. Yeah. You don't send him to get the food. And that never again, it'll never happen again. And it was so funny as I had a chance to actually sit and watch. Chris e which was. You really see our? Vour hungry. The case it is hungry and cold. Nicole thing about it is he lifted little thing up in. He stared them down for me. For the biggest one. Yeah. Like, he wasn't for sure people will watch anymore. He was looking for the biggest one, you know, how many he's going to take out. That's that is a problem right in that little buffet like the little things like do you take two or three because you know, you want you just go one at a time. Chris you're speaking my language right now. Yeah. You take you take more than one is the answer. Travis raw his kids up there too. I talked a little traffic hood. How do we family event? Just. I'll tell you what. Next time Travis I'm gonna take Travis out for a stroll. Next time we have samples. Yeah. That's Z. Unlike you, Sean, I know better come on. I know better. You're he got along great. We went on a straw. You. Put it to you this way. I answer a lot of very uncomfortable questions about the two of you on the right? Chris was stumbling almost fail on the two. A lot of questions cut, dad. What's going on with that guy? Dad? What's going on with that other guy? Oh, yeah. But you start like me, right. They want the truth or hurt your feelings. I don't care. All right. Did you guys see this which part kenley Jansen velocity is down but quote normal for spring. Have you ever heard somebody say that they've lost done perfect? What could be really good? Oh, yeah. Why not throwing his heart as I used to be down. Like, they said it. It's right where it is for spring. I mean, he may not look I don't play baseball. I mean, I didn't play baseball to the point. Green training. I played in high school that was enough butter. But in football when you were in training camp when you first get there, you're not going to one hundred ninety nine miles an hour, you build up to a certain point right in. And by the time you get to the regular season. You're in the shape in everything is clicking away. They're supposed to be same thing. Right. I mean anything so why can't velocity be down when he checks in the camp because his velocity was already down at the end of last season. Had he been throwing where he normally was when kenley Jansen is at his best. He's throwing somewhere in the mid nineties may be a little bit below that maybe ninety three ninety four. But when he's at his best and that cutters doing what it does. He was somewhere around there. And then at the end of that member I mean, you put yourself back in the last season all of the home runs. Get home run home run home run. He was just absolutely getting torched. And it was because the cutter wasn't cutting because he couldn't fail himself out. The velocity the way that he used to head. He been throwing hard at the end of last season. And just come into the season. And it's kind of ramping up than key. You'd be one hundred percent, right. But the problem is his velocity was down last year. And he's dropped a lot of weight to which I think for him is probably a good thing. He's a big guy, but he's down twenty five pounds. But the number he if he weighs I don't know what he wants. He's huge. He's like six foot seven if he's to eighty if he's to fifty five that's fine too. But it's the it's the number on the radar, unquote. The radar gun is overrated is what he said. Is it now when you're when you're getting guys out? I don't care what it says. But if you're not getting guys out, and it's dropped precipitously. Then we got a problem. Well, he's six five to fifty now. Sure is well that's what he says he's jock twenty five pounds because God twenty five twenty five, but you have to remember he changed his diet. He's doing more cardio and he had to because that was quote unquote, the doctor's orders. Remember, he had a second heart surgery. So I in two thousand one recently because he's big big bigger because he was seventy five pounds heavier. I mean, twenty five pounds heavier. Does that mean that he's posted throw harder? Physics acquaint half to you don't have to be heavy to throw. No, you gotta be strong. You have to be strong. You have to have good technique. You have to have the gift. Randy johnson. Randy Johnson wasn't huge means a skinny loose statement. He's six ten so he had all sorts of crazy levers to try to create Powell, and he was already when he's coming down who's halfway at the plate. Yeah. He was different animal altogether. Look, not these things are all fine. If you don't already have a bunch of red flags coming into it. If he's just if kenley Jansen was coming off a year where nobody could touch him. He was coming off the season he had three years ago, and he comes in down twenty five pounds and his MP h is lower. Whatever it, let's see. Let's wait. I would have the exact same approach that you're talking about key. But when you come down twenty five pounds after having health issues like yes after being ineffective the way that he was towards the end of the regular season, even the postseason. I'm even. Yeah. But by his standards. He was definitely inconsistent by his standard silver at all of that up together to where we are right now. And this is just an again, it's like Kershaw that it would be one thing if you came into camp saying we're going to ease into it. It's another if you have to keep stopping and going back to square one. It's a little bit is is at the end of the world. No. But it's another red flag on a very important piece of their team that you just coming into season. Like, okay, we gotta wait and see what that is. Well, he was inconsistent. In other words, there were certainly moments in which you look and go there he is. And then there are moments in which you're like what's going on. He had a very tricky season for a variety of reasons, he started off her remember have a hamstring that changed the way he delivered the ball that finally gives better. Go to Colorado has to help scare with his heart. Had a stay away for another two weeks comes back, but then they're still tinkering with his medication as he's trying to play and get back into playing shape. All these things led into us wondering what's going to happen with Kenny heading into the season. If he says, he feels fine. First of all, that's fantastic. Because hopefully, that means all the healthy things will there's a hamstring or the heart our way in review, and I I tend to listen to him when he says if last is down, but I'm feeling good. You know, because remember he was untouchable before so velocities down that makes him a top ten closer Texaco's to. Yeah. You know? We'll see. He was not. We'll see. All right. Let's try LA Habra this time. And Steve Steve you're on the morning show. What's going on? Steve. Hey, guys. Love the show. I gotta stick up. A rod. He's really not his job to feed keys kid. Go anywhere you feed your children. I'm going to an angel game. I feed the kids before we go or you go to leading course, you eat before you go the other going to be horrible. If before you go to day with little kids, you feed them keys. You know said Ron to do it. Steve. Stephen sprint. On St. first of all you. Absolutely, right. It's not his job to feed my kids. But when you volunteered it you're going to go all stay here key. Don't worry. I'm gonna go to the de or down to the concessions in. We'll go in and take care of it. And then you don't bring anything back but alcohol because you're too drunk to remember, there's a problem there on I remember, you know, there's a problem there. Steve that kind of your like if you were going to send L D Travis, you know, they've come back with food, and they do it. Right. But but Rajin Christmas or the last two guys. Do you have have absent absolutely lesson learned. That is the point that makes a lotta sense here because you could make the argument that it is it is it, isn't Rogers responsibility. But right up until you asked survived tears to do accepts that responsibility. But I agree with Steve keyword that you allowed him to mess. Is my fault for allowing teenager to adolescent, Betty, 'cause I don't know where he falls in our ad is trying to do such a thing. I'm very responsible Steve's to their Stevie still there. He's not. I'm very he says in about going to angel games or something like that. Yes. He okay. He lives in the harbor, which is near Anaheim stadium. That's over near Chris almost right? Yeah. We live five minutes from the city near and I'm standing we'll hovers kind of about twenty minutes away. Why are you laughing else? He doesn't like the angels didn't like angel stadium. Rewarding lot. Baseball this spring and summer right here. Great endorsement, I mean, we're not we're at a partnership Elsie. So we run a lot of angel games. We've been doing it for a while. We must be in a long distance relationship. Cause I ain't seen you in a minute. We'll this season since Travis is down in Orange County will and he used to work with the key. We'll do an angels night. How great. Like the best player mice. John is great. They haven't applied wiser patio out. There was a really good friend of mine is this a bit. No, it's fine. He's fine. Newman angels night this summer, we're gonna come to the OC. There's great little breweries now. Gastro breweries, and we'll do that. We'll do an angel site. Great for me to before mentioned of Philly. At that done before. More deal. Pony up at four hundred what? Yeah. But if he's a free agent he can go somewhere else. It'd be exciting. Do they still have that Otani guy? Well, hurt less heard. So she coming back. Yes. Well, we gotta picking Otani. Guess what? You Darvish says. He has his best stuff ever right now. Shouts out to you. Tell me. I don't I don't care if he throws ten years in a row. I'll never never forget. You. All right. The lakers. They did what I didn't even think they could do they lost to the sons. What are the odds? They get into the playoffs. Now, we'll come to you next. Makes you wanna just. Sit back. Look at the Lakers remaining schedule. Let Dinh's watched single tier drip down from that left. Eyeball. And just play the blues key. Display the booze. We're gonna have to give it a little more build up. Just keep going. You mean more please that he hasn't gotten to the hook yet. No. He ain't going to go. Here. We go. Komo now if you're. Only. Wait. We. Two. And that's where the Lakers this morning. I don't know why tonight or today, I should say is the poor. No, the loss of Phoenix. But when you lost a Memphis when you lost a New Orleans, and you lost the Cleveland when you lost to the Knicks when you lost all these Orlando twice. This is that that it finally happened against the sun's. No big surprise there team. Yeah. Team. You got a good team. Doesn't lose ten games too bad teams that just they don't you? Don't you might lose one or two ten but they play down to competition. They've been showing a satellite your they are though. But I don't believe that. That's what it is. I just believe that they're either not prepare to the point. They're not motivated. They're not inspired in this something that's going on there. And I can't much like Kuh said he can't put a finger on it doesn't know what it is. But clearly when I watched him play against Milwaukee the other night, then look like a real Laker team. Then look like a real teen for three quarters in the wheelchair. Ted. It did all of a sudden last minute and a half the two minutes. They just it was the the inbound pass they called the time out. They drew some all the time. What it was? But then there was a terrible passing it, right then. And there they just crumbled it the whole thing has crumbled wind coming out of the all star break the Lakers had their odds to make the playoffs where minus one ten okay, which which is about even money. So you better hundred to win one ten it it it's close to even money. Now there minus nine hundred they've a one point one percent chance of making the playoffs. And this is you can see this coming to mile away. And you watch that game against Phoenix. And it wasn't just that they lost a Phoenix. There was a bunch of moments in that game where and I'm not singling out. Lebron? It's just that he's the one that's the most memorable where he just came racing on the for a couple of really bad shots with about two and a half three minutes to go to the point where you almost had to double check the clock. Like m I see in this, right? And there's twenty seconds left on the shot clock. There's two and a half minutes left in the game. And he's just jacking up crazy shots. They were there were playing desperate in the wrong way. Not desperate like, hey, we got to win. But frantic almost. And a key. I'll go back to what you said that to me is as much about what's happening on the sidelines is what it is. It's happening on the court that when when you can't figure out anything on how to get any sort of sustained push to beat a bad team like that. That's as much on the coaching staff as it is the play. And I believe that strongly. I believe that there's a lot of that factors into the coaching staff. Whether it's the motivation is them to play whether they believe in what you're selling. What where is that? Or have. They basically lost trust in you. And basically mailed it in and said if we make it to the playoffs we'll make the playoffs, but we don't we don't. I mean that could very well be the case as well. They allow Phoenix league worst team to shoot fifty one percent from the field. The gave up sixty six points in the first half. And then open the third quarter of nineteen points. When you when you listen to that, and you go, oh, that's what they did against the Golden State Warriors. Like, oh, well, that makes sense the bucks all that make sense. But I guess a team that is trying to lose against a team that's being led by rookie. And what it third year player in Devon Booker against a team that for all intents of purposes, no one wants to go to because it's so poorly run in terms of ownership when you're this desperate to make the playoffs, and you go in and you basically get smacked around by the squad until a desperate fourth quarter. I'm just sitting here, and I just keep going to the coach the coach the coach the coach the coach I have not called from Luke Walton job before today pry, I don't know why you should ahead. And I know that they probably want to get to the end of the line for some sort of Clinton nudity to give him to finish the season. And all the things that you could kind of right up there that I'm there to see that. I I get the idea of you wanna let him finish what he started. But at some point when you're losing games. Like this two teams like this you guys, and I understand there's only nineteen games left. But at some point, I said, no, this is this is unacceptable. I know that it's not gonna change the final result that we're still going to miss the playoffs. I know that changing out at handing over the duties to the last night to give Brian Shaw or whoever they give it to probably doesn't change the result in getting in the playoffs. But I need everybody in this organization to know that this is not okay. This this level of performance against an opponent. Like that is unacceptable. Even if there's two games are five games are nineteen games left. This is not. All right. Well, they have to start off. Okay. So here's what I would do if I was a coach if I was in the building I will say everything else in the past push it binds, you this look forward to tonight. This worry about a team that you play twice starting tonight, the clippers or head of you in the standings for playoff spot. Let's take care of business with the clippers. That's not dwell on what we did in the past. Let's try to fix it tonight. Let's just trying to whatever that is one game at a time fix it tonight against the clippers. You got an opportunity to somewhat make you right by handling business tonight. Now, if you go out there, and you let MAs golf and Patrick Beverley. Chain guide zoo walks in in in Patrick Beverley, talk trash to you. It disrespect you that the level that they have been to Nestle. You man, look, that's all you. I'm gonna tell you right now zoo BAAs go eat he's to eat. Well, well, all the centers if you allow him to do so every who's gonna stop him all the centers that we've been facing? That's got any kind of apology available in a minute Powell. He's in Milwaukee. Oh, did he start with Mark yet? That's where he's gone. Yeah. When did that happen over the weekend? Oh, well so much for that. I missed that one is I'm just sitting here. Like, I I'm fully prepared for that. Big man, not just to have revenge but in terms of offense, he's a good offensive player. And we're really bad against authencity bigs key, you were talking about what royals a you mentioned, Kyle Kuzma and key. You're talking about Luke Walton in what Kyle Kuzma said, obviously, there's something wrong with this team. Not really sure right now what it is. Is that Luke it when he's talking about? There's something wrong. And I don't know what it is. Then you could tell he was frustrated after the game is that is that an indirect shot at the coach not too early for him too early for him to take shots at the coach. It's too early for him. He hasn't. He hasn't put his foot down enough yet. Even if the team is struggling even if he knows he's cook. Even if he knows he's on his way out you still can't stand. He doesn't seem like it wasn't. Roar. It was a, hey, look, we got something wrong with an I don't know what it is. Because if he doesn't know what it is that implies to me key that the head coach doesn't know what it is. And he's searching searching for answers is what he's doing. He doesn't know what to say somebody probably pose a question to him. Hey, what's wrong with the team? And he didn't he just says, I don't know. It's dry phone. Call Patrick in Pasadena. Patrick, you are on the morning show. In fact, he's sprint people's hotline. What's up Patrick? Span is always, but I'm gonna say this very quickly, and as nice as possible respect, everything you guys have been love your opinion completely wrong. We we were patient for four years. Five years brought in a coach that made our defensive atop. We're getting better better better than we signed a rookie GM and a president has never done this. We've made bad moves been taken advantage of or told her moves, you know, the trade because other people couldn't do do box. We gave away for nothing. We put a bit of bad route together, you think we're there's we're losing the sons, we think Tim stay when they lose to the Lakers. We're taking a knife to a gun fight and blaming everyone else. But the actual problem, which is we have a bad team on the floor and no end in sight. You will. I don't know about the no one inside part. I think that there is an end in sight. You still have a Braun you've got a ton of cap space. You've got a player Anthony Davis that reportedly would like to be in Ellen and that wasn't. And there wasn't a plan in place for twenty nineteen twenty twenty not twenty eighteen twenty nineteen the player was always thought to to go into next year and get another guy the pair will O'Brien after they missed out on two guys issue. Does bring up a good point though about the roster that you can't just gloss over that. That's part of the issues. Not the only issue. But it's part of the issue as well. I- Jeannie says that the media they're putting out fake news on the Lakers. Stephen a Smith had something to say about that. You'll hear it next this. Yes. Thirty years ago today. Your daily got sold out there. So there you go three feet high and rising was released thirty years ago today gotta seems longer for some reason it does. I don't know why it seems long. Men because his song as still still a banger. So doesn't feel like it's dated pluck one plus to me myself, and I. They're coming out with an album this year produced by gosh. They are are you doing a bit? No. They are they still okay. They got some. Okay, stuff that they're coming out. And they got some producers coming out with them this time. So. That's why I got such respect for j. It's so hard man, longevity and hip hop. Yeah. And jeopardy and relevance in music in general music in general. Yeah. I mean, just to I don't wanna say it's easy to have something pop because it's not, but to have a bunch of different things over the course of good luck with that. But it's hotter and hip hop. I think because they're always looking for the new thing the next thing and young and hip, and you know, and dangerous, and when you get older and his money and get comfortable, it's hard to be that. So you mean, if you're in a gated community, you can't talk life in the hood. Well, some people Will Smith. I was in a whole foods whole foods. I'm gonna try. All right Jeanie Buss was at a conference over the weekend Sloan the Sloan analytics conference. Yes. And she accused the media of perpetrating on this is nothing new but new for genie to say that there's fake news out there here. She is the biggest challenge for that. Are the fake news about how we were supposedly trading? Our entire roster for a certain player, which is completely not true. But those kind of. Those stories leaks leak out, and and it hurt it hurt. Our young players wasn't fair. Magic in front of that. And I think we're we're back on the right track. Hopefully that'll allow us to to make playoff push. Right. I mean up here playoff pushes dead in the water. How does she get ahead of it? I don't know. I that that didn't make a lot of sense. It's not fake news either. Because they're the reports that came out were were from people that don't just they're not bomb throwers. They're not just making stuff up. Sometimes people will get ahead of themselves and say some things or reports some things that aren't but the vast majority of people, then we'll never know exactly what was offered. But we knew that the Lakers were aggressively going after Anthony Davis prior to the trade deadline and that a package of multiple players had been offered. Now. What exactly that is what who knows in it almost doesn't even matter? But that that was being done. That's not fake news. They just didn't get it done. You know, she's she's operating in the tens of because you reporting something that makes me uncomfortable or your reporting something that can cause me harm. I'm going to save reports or false as opposed to deal with the ramifications of the harm and unfortunately for her this conference. Came much further pass the trade deadline because has she come out and said this in the midst of all of this, then maybe that would have had a different impact in the way that the young players felt about the season. But here we are in March, and these are now out there in a very public way. Well, you've had a home period. Linguistic young people didn't know the young people because they are kids, but they didn't know their future. So if it was as you want to call it a fake news. Then you get ahead of it. Yeah. Go to them. Go to look we're not doing that. Right. And that's not what happened here. Stephen a Smith responding to the fake news story. I wonder why we even paying attention to it. The fact that Matt is genie bus buses, a very, very lovely lady. And what have you but Magic Johnson's run a basketball operations. Magic Johnson is on record telling the player that they need to grow up. And they have to understand it. This is the business. Lebron James has been unapologetic publicly about his pursuit of Anthony Davis and everybody and their grandmother. Knew that the lake is basically said excuse me who do you want for Anthony Davis? No, they didn't literally offer the entire team. But they essentially said outside LeBron tell us what you want in terms of Iraq Stor, and you can have it. So we all know that that is the situation is Brian windows accurately reported and actually accurately stated that everybody knew what the story was Magic Johnson. And LeBron James didn't deny it. So genie Buss coming out and saying what she said we understand it. But this is the whole thing when she talked about it's not fair welfare as a place where they judge pigs. And I don't know if they do that at there's. So the fact that the matter is nobody cares. Okay. In the end, what it comes down to is that you have a roster that isn't that impressive. That hasn't looked at impressive. That has looked even worse since LeBron James has returned from his rent from his groin injury. We missed eighteen games did defenses horrid they can't shoot the three consistently. Don't get me started on three point shooting. And you could ask the question to me the big question. It is outside of LeBron who's worth keeping how about that story. Okay. Couple of things. Number one. The blind about judging pigs at the fares. Awesome. And be is he's right. This is all a smokescreen. This is all air cover to we put together a team. That's not very good. And whether she's covering magic, or rob or Luke or whoever it is. This is a team of guys that don't fit real well together that don't play row what really well together. And what he said at the end is how many people throughout the rest of the NBA are dying to get their hands on some of these Laker pieces. Maybe not nearly as many that we thought of earlier, and it's all of these things have brought us to this point that this fake. It doesn't matter. What your mix of guys is average at best and the results are showing it. Well, the the sum of the parts average. But I'll tell you why one particular piece in particular needs to be talked about a lot more and a lot more glowingly on the other side that's t's Chelsea. It's coming up. Blue's from traveler. I hit the wrong button. Frank. Honesty. You know, we're driving home from the Laker game on Friday night. My thirteen year old had a lot of questions about Kris. He was big fan of Chris. He really like he must've said, hey that one guy that was what he kept calling you. He's thirteen. I thought he was the fifteen year old one. No, he's thirteen. He's very tall. I said some inappropriate thing. I think all of my children are tall. They are tall. Yes. Daughters. Like all this. She five ten. Wow. Yeah. Volleyball tournament wreck track track track. Yes, she attract me, but my son Michael was repeatedly. So is he is that guy always liked that? He's funny. He's pretty funny. What the guy with the beard? He what's what's his like what what does he do? It is when I was I was impressed with the reach. We had with the listeners the second person Kay. How love you on the show. You know? Hey, a pump messiah peace with me. Labor's very. I said the same thing to me. It was very pro. Then he had other stuff with them. It's great. He was interesting while I don't want to give away his business. But anyway, l z the one guy that does not get talked about enough is Lonzo ball. You know, we just heard Stephen a talk about magic LeBron genie buzz. You know, we everybody wants to about Luke, you know, we're basically saying it's time to get fired. But the one thing that this late season collapse has illustrated is that he's a lot more important to this team success than what the stats sheet show that as as as wonderful as enemies can be the eyeball tests. Still is king. Could you can look at the numbers and find all kinds of things the point to to says, this is okay. This is bad. This is bad. This is good. But, but blah, but only your eyeballs can look and go they don't look right right coup. Says there's something off there's something wrong. It's Lonzo we consider this. He's missed last sixteen games since the gate. The great three ankle sprain. Right. They've gone five and eleven since he's been gone. The Lakers went six and eighteen without LeBron basically the same basically the same. So I'm not saying Lonzo as good as the. Lebron? But what I am saying is that clearly he brings something to the table that turns this team from a below foul hundred squad until the team that we saw in December that was grooving, and you had national media saying, they figured it out and yada, yada, yada. The injuries have played a role in this. I know we look at the team the roster construction, and we go where's the shooting? Where's this where I get all of that? But also know that Lonzo ball's presence on the court on both sides has been paramount for their success and without him. They are a mediocre team at best. Yeah. I this is there's no shade in this for me at all with Lonzo. And I think most people know where I stand, but he's he's an important part of what they do. And in never mind what he brings specifically on the offense of end or the defensive end or whatever to your point of view the eyeball test. I think is the ultimate validation of lonzo's value. Is it just looks differently? But and just to dumb it down completely Lonzo. When healthy just gives them a fourth competent body on the court. They're down to three I we're when we're talking with key about I get it. I get it that the other teams don't all have five all stars. But their fourth through seventh guy can come in the game. And at least hold the hold the tied, at least at least we were up by ten when they leave your up by eight or your, you know, you're up by seven that you when the this next wave of Lakers comes in. And it's not just the next week because two of them are out there with the other three guys you've got you've got LeBron coups Ma and Ingram who are all playing pretty well coups defense has been pretty bad of late. But you've got three guys out there that are capable solid NBA players. Bullock, hit and miss when he's writing up at the rest of it. They're nowhere. There were nowhere. And I don't care winners. You're getting if the other teams like, Milwaukee, they're NextWave guys they might be Caesar C pluses, but the Lakers aren't even throwing seasons C pluses out there they're inconsistent. And part of the reason why they're inconsistent is because. The rotations been so inconsistent. You know, take for instance, chevelle McGee you mentioned him early today. Jill played pretty damn good game against Phoenix was ten from ten from the field makes you wonder why he wasn't starting. Well, he wasn't starting. Because now we're doing some sort of version of small where coups is being asked to guard. You say his defense has been great as late. Why don't you try guard someone who's like five inches taller in about twenty to thirty pounds heavier than you? You know, we knew at the beginning of the season when he experimented with this. In the first two weeks that coups at the five wasn't ideal was part of the reason why we went out and got Tyson Chandler because our sides was an issue. A yet we keep rolling out this this variation of small ball. The and I'm not quite sure why I don't know if it's because you feel like you've just gotta have that offense in right away. I don't know if you can't tell one of the he the Brandon Ingram or coups you need to come off the bench to lead the bench. But for whatever reasons. It's hard to be consistent Travis when you don't know when you're going to play. And that to me is part of the problem is well knowing what the rotation is going to be knowing your definitive row. So that you can fit in there. Lebron tuck it after the Suns game that he's frustrated with the way that he individually has been playing is frustrating for me personally shoot a free throw me last. The ball. You know, we'll do the whole game tonight. I before from nine or whatever I was so for for individual part of it. That's frustrating for me to to. You know to mystery throws. But Berkeley group I know of the game to come down to those two freelance. That's for sure. But for me, personally, definitely could've played a lot better. You know about the whole game. It's it there's nobody in this run that is exempt from some level notices them in LeBron included. Lebron is is numbers are where they are historically but LeBron LeBron played really poorly in that fourth quarter. And it wasn't just the free throws. It was he he looked for a guy that's been around as long as he has. And his his smart as he is in a successful as he is. He looked frantic in those last couple of minutes of the game. Which is very unless like he was not into shot selection was bad. The pressure was bad. He threw that ball off the backboard, it was just a mental error in that spot that just everything about even LeBron James looks like it's less than well. They had a really good defensive scheme. And I think team was taken for a loop when they decided to start and guarding him. You know, Aidan did a fairly good job of funding him to a certain direction, whereas help was so if he if LeBron was beating him to the ram, which, you know, which he obviously was doing the scheme made it so that there was always someone there to greet him. And he shut the ball, you know, decent from three then not necessarily have the lights out. But I think eight and presence on him was a little bit of a shock, and the fact that he was able to kind of stick with them for a little bit and eat on the other side. I think also played into potteries might use frustrate it. We have breaking news, Raj. No, we do an involves the Lakers in Carmelo Anthony. Like to hear more. It's not that. No say, no, whoa, JR. Is reporting this as well. So you know, that's legit. Right. But you wanna hear here? Mike, I'm afraid of what I'm about to hear. But go ahead, the loss Angeles, Lakers and free agent. Carmelo Anthony are pausing possible contract agreements unless the franchise makes a turn back towards the pursuit of the Western Conference playoff contention. So wait what? Yeah. Well, let's get back into playoff picture there. Pausing. They wanna make sure they don't get in. I don't know if his home like, hey, I want to play for a playoff team or them saying like, hey, since we might not make the playoffs you might not need whatever help they think that he might offer. But I can't imagine that that Carmelo is Lou shopping playoff offers at this point Z, Bryce Harper. You don't know guys. I appreciate the split. I'm gonna hold out for a home layoff spot. I'm not sure what side is a wanting to hold off. And went to initiate, the the politics. Two token. Yeah, they still talking, but I will find out and let you guys know. So yeah. The people I'm gonna lie in less. You're gonna get Yoenis or Steph curry there is no player, you're adding at this point that's available. That is going to put you over the home. No, you're you're gonna have to get smoking. Hot over these last nineteen games. Almost to the point where you might be able to lose one or two more maybe three and sixteen three would have loved the way to end the season. Who may not get you in. Right. And so this there's no Carmelo add. There's no there's no ad period. Other than you're going to have to just get better, real, fast and illness inexplicably. So just you know what? Okay. We're good again. Good luck with that. They shut forty free throws Phoenix. It's too many. Yeah. But guess what? The foul count was. Twenty four to twenty two. So we did not suit forty free throws vein. They did what does that tell you? The number of times that we filed shooters was ridiculous. That to me is a coaching thing. That's a coke into strengthening. And it's also a player being situationally unaware thing. I mean, I guess, but as at a certain point, it's is it seems as if it's not a player. It's a voice. It's a voice they're not hearing. I know nuke has the exact same stat sheets that we have he's the forty free throws. He saw in twenty two files. Yeah. Nothing about what they're doing right now. Whether it's on the panther on the court is working out nothing. It should. I mean, they lost to the sons. What else do you want to say? I l z and Rosh they were part of Elliot sees great night last night. Plus roll-call coming up next.

The Gospel for Busy People: Jesus Offers Second Chances

"Today's episode of a new beginning is brought to you by harvest partners. Helping people everywhere. No god learn more at harvest dot org and while you're there browser library of free e books designed to help you grow in your faith. Maybe you've had a setback in life. Maybe you've done something you regret. Maybe you've had elapsed of faith but no this your setback can actually turn out to be a setup and your tests can be turned into a testimony. Our lives are never too far. Gone the choices. We'd may don't leave us forever. Ruined today pastor greg. Laurie points out the hope. The lord offers if you followed to few failed. Jesus can give you a second chance right. I john one eight says if we say that we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us given that given we're all in this boat together what do we do now. How does centers like us find forgiveness for our sin relief for our guilt and reestablish a relationship with a holy god. that's the subject on the table today. On a new beginning and pastor greg. Laurie lodges a brand new series will see how we can access that second chance. Jesus offers yeah wants you to grab your bible and turn to two passages of scripture mark chapter one and luke chapter for again mark chapter one and luke chapter four and i have a message for you with the title. The gospel for busy people. Well i think most of you watching me right now probably has one of these devices. We call it a smartphone. You probably either have an apple iphone or an android phone and these phones have changed our lives. haven't they in some ways for better and frankly in some ways for worse. I remember steve. Jobs came out with the first version of the iphone in two thousand seven and we had never seen anything like it was so revolutionary so different than anything that had been made up to that point. It was dubbed by some as jesus foam. Well no phone can live up to that but the phone is affected everything that we do now now. Of course we have tablets and we have watches that. Give us data and information in real time and we're barraged with 'em for mason. You can't even have a conversation with the person anymore without being interrupted by a phone. I mean if you're talking with someone in your phones in pocket and you get a little buzzer so tempted to pull it out and see what it is. It might be something from a news feed. It might be a text. It might be an email. There's an article. I read on the wall street journal that made the statement and i quote even though digital technology his lead to significant productivity increased. The modern workday seems custom. Build to destroy individual focus. I think that's true. I don't even think we're able to have a proper conversation anymore. We have a whole generation generation z. That has never known anything but this tech having it in their hands and a poll was taken them they said they would rather tech someone then have a conversation with them and then their social media that has such a tremendous impact often in a negative way. Michael hyatt made this statement focusing on everything means focusing on nothing and that sort of thing is happening. We're just barraged with all this information and we are unfocused people so i thought this is a great time to focus on. Jesus read an article in the paper the other day about a guy who was driving a semi and he was kinetics phone and he ran off the road. And that's how. I feel like a lot of people are right now. We're running off the road. We've lost our focus. We've lost our purpose because we're looking down all the time and really we should be looking up so we're starting to brand new series based on the gospel of mark that i'm calling the gospel for busy people another thing you could call it as the gospel for people with. Add right people was short attention spans. She see mark's gospel is a very fast pace a series of choose laid out in this amazing book. He uses the word immediately forty two times. Mark uses the historical present tense. One hundred and fifty times in other words. Jesus comes jesus heals. Jesus says all in the present tense. Not the pass. So it's almost like you are there. Mark gomez reminded us of a breathless reporter giving us the events in real time as they're unfolding and i think this is a gospel. We can all relate to today because it seems like we collectively have a short attention span. So who is this guy. mark is full name. is john mark. He's the author of this gospel and he is the nephew of barnum bitch. You may remember barnabus because he traveled with paul. And let's just say that john mark who is much younger than the others got up to a week start. He was given the opportunity to go on a missionary journey with his uncle. Barnabus and the great apostle paul and. I don't know what happened but mark got cold feet wanted to go home. Maybe he was just homesick and he bailed on them so when they went on their next missionary journey and barnabus suggested they take mark along. Paul was supposed to take him along it because he didn't stay with us on the last journey and so this was a setback for mark but whatever company was able to repair his relationship with paul. Because later paul writes of mark in second timothy four eleven. he's been helpful to me in ministry so think about this guy. He's a kid. His uncle is barnabus. He is a personal friend. With the apostle paul and then add to this the fact that he was very close to simon peter in fact peter refers to mark as his son. And i peter five thirteen and in fact many believed that the gospel of mark was actually written by mark but dictated by peter so it is believed by many and i happen to agree with them that this is effectively. The gospel according to peter but yet at the same time mark was there. He was a young man but he did witness the ministry of jesus later on in the book banks. We read that. Peter was put in prison. You remember that story next twelve. And they were praying for him. And peter showed up at a house as an answer to their prayer because god delivered him from the jail. What house was that. That was the house of john mark and he lived in with his mother mary. So this guy was right in the epicenter of so many biblical events. That were so incredibly significant. So here's the reason. I bring all this up is is marquette. A huge setback. You know he walked away from the apostle paul and barnabus at one point but then he made a recommitment and he ends up being a bonafide gospel author quite a distinction. And so maybe you've had a setback in life. Maybe you've done something you regret. Maybe you bailed on something you would committed to. Or you've had a labs of faith but no this. Your setback can actually turn out to be a setup and your tests can be turned into a testimony when our nation. The united states of america was forming when we were still fighting with the british empire. General washington was put in charge of the continental armies of the united states. Which this was a rag tag collection of all types of people ranging from farmers to common workers to people who were scholars but the point was it was a very interesting undisciplined army general washington. Who once was in the queen's army. I should say the king's army at that time was a disciplined soldier and he was trying to lead this motley crew of troops and one of the problems that he had was they would just walk off the field of battle with no explanation with no warning. I'll good section of his army would disappear and it was watching his own words. Describe this group of people as here today and gone tomorrow. He was this woodson. He didn't know how to rally these troops to fight for the independence. Of what would become. The united states of america will a friend of washington's a great patriot named thomas. Paine wrote a simple little booklet called the american crisis. And i'm gonna quote just a couple of lines from it and they'll probably sound familiar to you. Thomas paine writes in his little booklet quote. These are the times that try men's souls this summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis shrink from service to their country but he that stands now deserves the love and thinks of many women and quote. These are the times that. Try men's souls and i think we're in another time like that right now in america. Don't you a time that this trying our soul. We're in political season. Were conflicted were divided. We're fighting with each other almost in a way that i've not seen maybe in my lifetime and would just wonder how we ever gonna turn america around again. I think we need to be turning to god. The problem is in the same way. We still have our summer soldiers and our sunshine patriots. Or i would put it in a different way are half hearted christians and our quads i- believers who are not really followers of jesus as they ought to be so. This is the time for us to rally. This is a time for us to get back in the battle and serve the lord because we are in a spiritual battle in our nation today. So if you've fallen if you've failed if you've stumbled. God give second chances. We certainly see that in the life of john. Mark pastor greg. Laurie we'll have the second half of his message in just a moment. It's so encouraging when we hear that listeners are growing like hearing these studies dear pastor greg i found christ in the mid nineteen seventies a very fact for my christian life. I i heard you preach. I learned about evangelism. First harvest crusade and anaheim stadium where my friends bill was saying over my life. Jesus has protected me time and time again including killing me from cancer. I lived on the east coast now for over twenty five years and recently reconnected with you through your podcast where i found each podcast is a real bible. Study for me. And i'm learning so much and it's causing me to study god's word more intently at nearly seventy nine years old. I'm enthused excited about my faith. Like i was those many years ago. Thank you for helping rekindle my fire of love for jesus in my old years. Life is wonderful. What a great story of. How pastor greg's teachings from god's word have made an impact on this man's life in if you'd like to listen to pasture greg's podcasts. You can do that through. Google apple or spotify or just go to harvest dot org that's harvest dot. Org pastor. Greg is launching a new series in mark today called the gospel for busy people. Let's continue so the backdrop of the gospel of mark is the believers were suffering in rome. Nero the caesar over rome at that time had declared war on the christians. He had a hand in burning rome down and then he blamed it on the followers of jesus christ who had nothing to do with it so the christians were forced to flee to the catacombs to survive so mark wanted to write a book that would encourage these believers. He wanted to show jesus in the present tense able to deliver them during their times of crisis as the bible says of god is a present help in times of trouble so i hope as you might be going through your own difficulties. Maybe you're being harassed for your faith. Maybe you're being hassled for what you believe. I pray that this newest series that we're doing in the gospel of mark will be a great encouragement to you. So let's read some of this gospel together. Grab your bible or your phone or your tablet wherever you have your bible and read these words with me if you would. I'm in mark chapter one. I'm going to read versus one to eight and by the way this is from the new living translation. This is the good news. About jesus the messiah the son of god. It began just as the prophet isaiah ahead. Ridden look i'm sending my messenger ahead of you. And he will prepare the way he is a voice shouting in the wilderness. Prepare the way for the lord's coming clear. The road for him. This messenger was john the baptist. He was in the wilderness and create. Some people should be baptized. Showed the repented of their sins and turn to god to be forgiven. All of judea including all of the people of jerusalem came out to see and hear john. They confess their sins and he baptize them in the jordan river. His clothes were woven from course camel. Hair anywhere a leather belt around his waist and for food he ate locust and wild honey. John announced someone is coming soon. Who is greater than i am so much greater says john. I'm not even worthy stoop down like a slave and untied the straps of sandals. I baptize you with water. But he will baptize you with the holy spirit mobile. Stop there john. The baptist the forerunner of jesus christ he was a radical he was a revolutionary. He was like a rockstar. Everybody wanted to see in here. John is mark writes all judea including the people of jerusalem went out to see john. You have to understand. The john was not just a prominent figure. He was super prominent. The ancient jewish historian josephus actually wrote more about the life and ministry of john. Then he wrote about jesus christ himself and so john was a significant figure. You ask why we'll understand. Israel had not heard from god for a long time from the time of the last old testament book. The book of malachi to the emergence of john was four hundred years. Think about that. Israel which was so used to profits and and miracles and angels hadn't heard from god for four hundred years and then seemingly out of nowhere but right god schedule emerges colorful character john the baptist and the at a simple job to do which was to prepare the way of the lord. John was the last of the old testament. Prophets the last of mohicans. If you will and not only was the the last of the old testament prophets. He was the greatest of all of the prophets of the old testament. Jesus themselves said in. Luke seven twenty eight i tell you of men born of women there has never been a greater profit than john the baptist. Now we read the story of john and we think well i understand. He was a great profit but greater than isaiah greater than jeremiah greater than elijah the prophet who perform miracles. I mean to the point. John never called fire down from heaven. John never stopped it from raining. John never raised a person from the dead. John never wrote a great old testament book like isaiah and others. So why was john the greatest of the old testament prophets. Here's the answer. John john alone was the direct herald and forerunner of jesus. His greatness was a direct result of his nearness in connection to cry. Now despite this great calling on us life despite this popularity that he had he was a really humble guy. Look at verse. Seven of mark chapter one. He says someone is coming. There was greater than me so much greater not even worthy the stoop down like a slave an anti the straps of a sandal. Let me update that saying. I'm not even worthy to tie his shoes. He's so great. But john understood exactly what his role was. Even though he was a great public figure and very popular his mission was to get out of the way and prepare people for jesus. That's that's amazing. And guess what. That's our mission as well you might say. John's motto was. I must decrease and he must increase. Can you imagine if you put that on your mirror. And the assad is. You're getting ready in the morning. Imus decrease and he must increase. Or if you put that on your instagram account before you did a post. I must decrease and he must increase for that was john. He was setting the stage for. Jesus now jesus enters the scene. Go back to mark chapter one. Look at verse nine. It came to pass on those days that jesus came from nazareth of galilee and he was baptized by john in immediately coming out of the water notice the way the mark writes coming out of the water. Ninety came out of the work coming out of the water where there mark puts us right there. You know he's this very urgent kind of a writer coming from the water. He saw the heavens partying and the spirit descending on him like adopt then a voice came from heaven which said you are my beloved son. In whom i am well pleased. I'll look at this immediately. This spirit drove him into the wilderness where he was tempted by satan for forty days. He was out among the wild animals in the angels. Took care of him of the trinity. Did you know the trinity or at least the word trinity is not in the bible but the trinity is in the bible. And i know that there's a clear verse in all of scripture. Then this showing us the trinity and action. We have jesus son being baptized. We have the holy spirit coming upon him as a dove and we have the voice of the father. Saying this is my beloved son in whom i am. Well pleased now. Look at verse. Twelve of mark chapter one immediately. The spirit drove him into the wilderness. This spirit drove him into the wilderness is not suggesting jesus didn't want to go what it is saying. This was something that was urgent. That the holy spirit was doing because this was something jesus had to go through so no time basking in the glory of god. This was straight to work. And that's pretty much the scene of mark. Jesus has a job to do but it also shows us something very important often trials or testings temptations come after moments of great blessing. Jesus in the jordan river being baptized by john having the fathers say this is my beloved son in whom i am well pleased in the holy spirit come upon him in the form of an immediately right on the heels of that he goes into the wilderness base say after the dove came the devil after the blessing came the trial. Astor greg laurie with the opening study in his new series in the gospel of mark a series called the gospel for busy people. That's also the title of today's study here on a new beginning if you missed any part of today's insight just go on line for a replay at harvest dot org and then it's a real joy to make available. A new book. Called the women of the bible speak written by shannon bream shannon as you may know as the anchor of fox news at night on the fox news channel. She's also the network senior legal correspondent and in this new book. She surveys the lives of sixteen prominent women in the bible and highlights the lessons to be learned from their lives. She speaking with pastor. Greg's wife cathy. If i'm not mistaken. I think you begin your book with the story. Who was unnamed in one of the gospels. The woman who had an issue with of blood that she was ostracized and she was weak and she was poor and she was powerless but she did. One thing that distinguished her that jesus was amazed by and we all are amazed by and that was what little strength she had. She knew where to go for health. And i we do speak to that woman almost an introduction to this entire book you set her up as as sort of a woman we need to study and learn from. I love this story so much. I really identify with it. Because of the years. I went through Physical trials and chronic pain and doctor doctor. I'm looking for help. And i think about that. Because this woman were told in the gospels had spent everything she had she'd been from doctor deducted doctor for twelve years. No one can help her but she heard about this man jesus and she said if i can just touch the hem of his garment. I believe i'll be healed now because of this issue of bleeding that she had We believe that she would have been considered unclean. In many societies. She would have been considered an outcast so she probably felt very isolated not being able to be in the temple or in crowd and other places probably very much confined to her home as many of us have felt this past year so but she decided to venture out and she found jesus and she got close enough that she just touched his garment. The scripture tells us immediately she was healed and instead of shaming her in front of that crowd. And saying you shouldn't even be out here. You didn't ask my permission. None of that. Jesus turned to her and every account and the gospels. The first thing he says to her is daughter and i love that. I think it is so beautiful that he immediately shows in front of this crowd. that's watching. He accepts her and what she's done is right. It's not wrong. There were so many people in those days who are accusing jesus of not following the letter of the law of the rules and he recognized that she had reached out in desperation. He said your faith has made you whole. He credited her it was certainly his divine power but he credited her with that faith that she had it was enough to heal her just the touch of him and he showed the people there that he accepted her that she was not somebody to be thrown out of society that he he viewed her as precious as a daughter and i just think her story is so beautiful and so encouraging on so many different levels. I want to thank you shannon for writing this book. The women of the bible speak subtitled the wisdom of sixteen women and their lessons for today. And you can order this from us harvest That will send you for your gift of any size. Yeah that's right and as you can tell it's full of substantial encouragement for christian women but really for all of us.

Hello and welcome to juicy scoop. Happy tuesday i'm recording this from the tail end of my memorial day weekend and i'm going to go through all the hot topics. Tell you about my phone weekend here in hermosa beach so i don't know if you hear it evolved players outside you might and then have a great interview with taylor higgins who is a self published author with a crazy ha crazy romantic story. That went awry with lots of red flags and just But very juicy. Very interesting and inspiring. And you're gonna love hearing her juicy story. Let's just get into the fun week. So for those of you who are part of patriotic. A little motion all sharing about the fact that my stepdaughter mackenzie graduated. She just graduated this on saturday so we came down. We rented this house For our twentieth wedding anniversary yes which was a year ago memorial day weekend you know back when the pandemic was like fun and you thought it was going to last like two weeks. Well we were like everyone else in drinking a lot and peter found this house and was like. Oh my god. Let's get this house for memorial day. Of course like pandemic will be over memorial day twenty twenty and then of course they had to cancel it then. We moved it to labor day and then we chose to cancel it because at that time they were finding people. If you didn't have a mask on walking on the strand one hundred dollars it was just really really strict just would have been not fun. So thank god. We're able to move into this weekend. And it's always like a little iffy with memorial day weekend weather. It can be like really awesome or it can be kinda gloomy. Well it's gloomy in the morning but it's beautiful in the afternoon and we had so much fun. Went to the graduation which was in at anaheim stadium so that people could really spread out and they did not say each kid's name now. I don't know if that's a pandemic thing because we also had the class of twenty twenty which looked like most of them came back. They looked like just as many people as twenty twenty one. Which i think is really cool if people did that and but they did not say their names and then i was like that sucks but i think it was fine because then they had these like things outside that they would wait in line. They had all these like booths kind of where the graduate walk up and then it would have their name and what they did and everybody but my daughter seemed did a cute photo herself which they had a beautiful quote either thanking their family or like quoting some person. Well mackenzie forgot to do that. She also forgot to order that said film but luckily the guy ahead of her film. And i'm like do miguel. yeah. And i'm like okay. Borrow his film sash can get some photos of you. Anyone very very proud of her. She finished in four years with a great gpa. She really learned a lot. You know it sucked. She ran over to all these kids. And i took a photo of them. That were in her program and she goes. Yeah most of those people. I haven't seen in a year and a half in person so it was just really. I'm really glad that that they got the graduation. And that this is hopefully behind us and your kids won't have to experience something like this but they really were resilient and they really did have a good attitude about it all of them all of our kids so lots of graduations this weekend and then we just had a bunch of people come over and we have this beautiful rooftop and my sister and her family are here and we rode bikes product. A lot of memories manhattan beach hut. Which is we're in hermosa. It's right next door to manhattan. Just was the funniest place in my twenties ever. I remember the first time. I walked into a bar. Call twelve th street. And i was at in college and i walked in and it was just a sea of tall hot guys. There were like all volleyball players. And i was like oh i found my heaven anyway. It's really fun and for the the age of our kids. It's kind of perfect because they could do cornhole volleyball. Ride bikes. Go get their own foods and restaurants. That's the other thing i said about this one. Now for those of you guys. I know moms can relate to this. You rent these vr. That i know a lot of people did it. Maybe if they wanted some type of vacation hurry pandemic because you couldn't get hotels. And i just feel like i cook so much that i'm cooking and cleaning. I spend two hours at the grocery store before. And i'm like how -cation so i do love renting homes but unlike okay. You know what we're going out to breakfast every day and we're ordering in dinner lunch. I am not making bacon and claiming that kitchen every day so you know what it does get better people you can change the day you have just done. Also i hated the that's like you're about to leave. And then you finally look at that book with all the details and then it has like twenty things. You're supposed to before you leave like strip every bed startled load and make sure that load is in the dryer before you start the other load or you're going to get a bad score on it and you know like where they like rates. You like an uber driver reach customer so i'm like paranoid i'm cleaning everything i'm like. This was just not that fun the at might as well just go home and host a party okay. Moving onto the juicy scoop. Well some sad news. As i celebrate my twenty. One years of marriage Blair underwood and his wife desert. And they have three kids that are like twenty four twenty and nineteen. They announced their divorce. They said it was a beautiful dirty. They're so proud of their children. They tried they just wanna have. They just want to live their lives apart. You know. respect them during this time. Which then i'm like all right. I guess not respecting them. Because i'm talking about it. But all i could think about was how hot blair underwood was. When he was dating maranda from sexist city. I mean they really had no chemistry. It made no sense. But i don't care it was like hot. And he's like hot for her and she says so. I don't know i didn't but it was fun. So could it be. Could he please make one guest appearance. I just hope that sex's city to is just all these guys are willing to do a guest appearance which i think they would has. How fun like you're you know. I mean how funny is that when you are you know older in life and you see like your boyfriend or twenty years. I mean when. I was here last night. This guy i was very hot for. We never made out but he was the social chairman for the kappa. Six social chairman for gamma phi. We talk on the phone all the time because we'd like plan these parties together. He was such a baby and he's like really successful and he started all these restaurants and the restaurant and wanted to last night. It was going to be a two hour. Wait and i said. Do you know who i am. That's what i said. Is the owner here. His name and she's like no the other manager owners here and i was like. Oh but i mean and i didn't even look that cute but i was like that would be kind of exciting if you remember me and then we got a table but that's not what happened. I get recognized a bunch. Thank you to the juicy scoopers that recognized by stories and you're living in the area there. I met at least like seven groups. One girl went to my high school louisville and usc she lived there. She's a juicy scooper. These two juicy scoopers mom or aunt were with them yesterday. ah juicy scooper mom dog mom. She came by a couple people when we were just riding bikes. Oh there was a house of people that i think were swingers. Oh my god they at nine forty five because these houses are like right outside. Then you have like a strand that you can walk or rollerblade or roller skate. I guess a lot of young people are picking up roller skating. Let me tell you something. People Some of you really suck and i just put the skates down. It's not great exercise. You're gonna hurt yourself and you can't do it get on a beach cruiser call today anyway and enrolling. Rollerblading to in the nineties is not a great exercise. Think about it. You're just rolling your your. You'll get many more calories burned if you walked honestly dorky when some hot guy asks you to come in. Have a drink with them. You're not like oh hold on. We sit down and take off his shoes. That are heartache off. That a ski boat okay. So there are these these people and they were like dancing girl with a grinding on the guy. Is this your house. The next day we walk by and they're like has there but right before they said that. I was just by friend and well and i'm like we're on our bikes so you could like pedal way quickly and i'm like hi swears. How is your orgy last night. And my friend has already got you just pedals away. And then they're like there. I don't think they heard what i said and i was like. Oh hi i'll come back. See later was not going to get involved in that anyway. Very fun. so to blair underwood's free you guys. He is babe and a half. And i love it though when these divorces always sound like they're really amicable and then they're not because then they realize like it's over and then start people start getting pissed and the money comes into play and then there's like hidden things that they're like no. I think i should get part of that. Speaking of which christine cavalieri and jay cutler they you know all of this is going to be a great divorce. We're moving on. She says it's the twenty twenty was the hardest but the best year of her life. He posts a beautiful thing about her on mother's day. Well he wants fifty percent of her business. And i think he's got a pretty great case. He says i contributed money to it and she says no he really didn't and he doesn't deserve any of it. But you know this uncommon. James is quite a big brand got home goods. It's accessories close. I would argue. If i was cutler's attorney he does deserve half because the thing that really put that brand you know on the call made their made. Its mark was i think they're reality. Show and i think their profile as acute family and a couple and he was there every step of the way and he was like helping her with the store stuff even if it was kinda shitting on it or being. A dick doesn't matter. I would argue. I was there for the reality show. And therefore the brand. We can't determine if the brand would be here with me or not. And therefore whether i gave money or not I was there while you race while you built it which i think girls are really going to be like feminist here and say it's all equal. Think about it the other way. What if what if it was his business and she was like at the booth selling t shirts on the reality show constantly talking about his business and then they get divorced and her attorneys. Like you should have half of that. You think she's now. I don't think i should. I just gave him three babies and sat at home now. He gets the glory of a business that i had to hear about him. Talk about every day and night for six years. So i predict maybe they'll settle and he'll get part of it or she'll have to write him a big big fat check which i don't i don't know because i don't think he should. I think he should hold out to have half of it. And maybe just be a silent partner something because it could really become a huge. I mean look like bethany frankl's empire and some of these other celebrity lines that some of them you know fall by the wayside but she does have good style and people do like her her look at our tastes. I think i could see it going. Okay let's kid into how the biggest news gen shaw of real housewives of salt lake city. This is the woman who is getting was or is arrested facing up to twenty years in prison for fraud basically. I've explained it. She ran a business where they would trick people into Telling them that they would build them. A website vulnerable people. People that were not tech savvy older americans and then re victimized again when it when the website never materialized then they'd re victimize third time by saying we can help you get out of credit card debt the credit card that you spent on this thing and they keep resell it to all these telemarketers of which gentile in my understanding had hand in very shady illegal business with real victims last night. Her cousin cre- aided a go fund me for her legal fees. With a goal of two point five million dollars and in the photo schick super clammed up and has a big ring and the cousin said by my cousin. Jenn shaw the nicest person in the world. This is a huge case. But it's going to be very expensive to fight she's innocent. There's one hundred thousand pieces of documents that have to go through so this is going to be an expensive legal defense. We're looking for ten thousand wonderful souls to each contribute. Two hundred and fifty dollars to get to the two point. Five billion goal people freaked out within twenty four hours go fund me has taken it down but i can totally see the logic of it. I can see them hanging around memorial day weekend talking about all these go fund me and saying gen gap people hate you but you have one hundred and fifty thousand followers on instagram. If just one percent of those followers gave you two hundred fifty dollars you would have the money you need. But of course everyone was like. This is how you sell your clothes. I mean she is the worst that i saw funny one and i don't know who originally made this mean but it was a fake go fund me for erica jeans. Glam squad at as a photo of erica jane. Jane and mikey and i thought that was pretty clever. Megan fox she took a photo. And she's in like this satin pink like very tight jumpsuits. Very tiny body with machine gun. Kelly and he's got long nails really like longer than khloe kardashian and then she took a photo that you post a photo of herself and she wrote daddy issues barbie and then he wrote. I'm your daddy now. Or something and comments by celeb- picked it up. And i saw it on that. Meanwhile there was an article written based on a post that her ex. Brian austin green of none of fame tori spelling spellings former acts. He posted a photo of his now current girlfriend and him in the pool with their sons with his sons but the way the article was written was brian austin green shares. A photo of his girlfriend swimming in the pool with megan. Fox's children here dick. That's like not a fair thing to say but of course people are really obsessed with every time she's out with machine gun kelly like we're Her well they have joint custody. You know what i'm sure. When she is with her kids she really makes that time special. I'm not sure. But i would hope so. But it is kinda funny because it is like. She's she's having the midlife crisis like she is with. It's like the same thing about the forty year old dad. That's like with a twenty five year old now. You can finally afford a porsche and put her in it and he has a midlife crisis. I feel like she's having a little bit of a midnight crisis like hanging onto your youth and you know doing these. She basically warm bathing suit to the last award. Show your body's banging but so he comes out on stage and he brings route on stage. I guess this is from a concert this weekend or something and he smoke a cigarette of course and then he ends up to her and she smokes it. And i'm like what is this like. Who are like. It is kind of funny at The same thing courtney now has gone from being at us. Well she did just post about acid right. That's her nineteen year old friend who we witnessed their friendship on social media and on keeping up with the kardashians that they're best friends they cannot stop each other from laughing. Just a look. They just have a history soul sisters and then. We didn't see her post about addison. Rae at all when she got her boyfriend travis barker which is also very teenage thing to do. Like drop your girlfriend well. She recently posted with her again that they were shopping. And they're wearing like they both had like big army boots on and again. I doubt it's funny because betty drama hilarious does a ton of impressions. He's really funny. Follow him on instagram. He did courtney kardashian going off now because he does a really good courtney her dashing impression and it's it's really is it's like your friend starts dating some mo guy and all of a sudden. She's adding piercings and tattoos and wearing her hair over three months prior. She was on the cheerleading squad. I love it. I think it's very fun to watch. Courtney stodden who's been in the news a lot. Because of the chrissy teigen controversy of when she tweeted her. Go kill yourself. Ten years ago she was on my show about six months ago and she had a boyfriend than i mentioned dr drew. Oh she seems like to have a very nice boyfriend and he's supportive. Anyway she also came out as non binary i realized i was saying. Non binary and thank god. Somebody corrected me. And i never hurt that you correct me. Correct me i can learn every day. I can learn in change but just know could the mistakes will continue but they might be new mistakes. Correct an old one and then start doing something wrong on a new name anyway. So she came out as non binary and ask you for the pronouns the they or them and she announced with a huge diamond. She's engaged and some magazine did share photo of him. 'cause he seems like he's a more private person. He's entrepreneur some entrepreneur. He's looks like he's definitely under forty. He looks very fit and it was just a picture of them like kissing on the beach so he does like a good body. And but okay. Now here's my question and we can ask questions okay. But here's my question. She said i she wrote in her post with her. Big diamond. courtney stodden road. I said yes so i looked up. If non binary people want you to say they have been there do they. Then refer to themselves. As first person rather i persons and say we. Obviously it's whatever. The person wants to choose but i looked it up and it was kind of a mix. Some people do that are done by near. They say we decided we're going to the park and they're just talking about themselves and other times they do go by in. Which courtney did in this situation. I don't know. I find it very interesting and you know. We want to respect everybody. But it's like you kind of wonder will. Will this be continuing. I don't know well. Let's be continuing on with everybody. That says that about themselves today. Will they feel that same way in five years or will they what they feel like. Now i don't know they might. Who knows it's up to. I don't care. I'll do my best. That was my question. The i and we and feel free to tell me in. Educate me on that as well. I don't ever wanna offend someone I'll be manzo son of caroline manzo. He posted a post. That was like i'm sick of this. You know don't you're going to. I'm going to explain the whole story on my podcast about what's going down mama bear meaning caroline manzo. You're everything you are the truth. There's more to this story basically and a little bit of a threat but also like you're going to hear my side of what i think is going on between my uncle who used to be married to my aunt. This is where some people get confused so carolina and dina manzo on the real housewives. They are blood. Sisters raised their ten years. Apart caroline manzo married the manzo. I mansa and became caroline manzo dina was married to another person had her daughter got divorced when she was single with her daughter she moved in with caroline and caroline husband. Man's those brother who always knew dida through family functions. But they weren't that close started to come around and pursuer and they got married making the to blood sisters not only sister in laws but both manziel's then dina manzo got divorced. The dinette got divorced for manzo and now and she and her fiance were both attacked him into situations her in one with her fiance whose husband and he has now. Many years later has been arrested where they think he hired a hitman to do this very violent physical crime. Caroline wrote a letter on his behalf. Saying he's good person he should not be in jail. You know until until the trial should be able to be out on bail Until the trial because of that a lot of people are like carolina horrible. This man you know is responsible for your sister. Getting beat up like hit her in the face. Broker knows with guns. So imagine you're in a walk into your house and there's gunman there that like pistol whip you and beat up you and your fiancee think you're going to die and this is your sister and whether you're stranger not. How can you support your brother in law like that and then be kind of like the keyword is the is accused and the truth will come out. Well i will say. I've had my own personal experience with this and you've seen enough datelines. It is extremely hard to prove. That film. One hired a hitman. They literally will be evidence. Where the person is in the car talking to the hitman who's an undercover cop and they still sometimes get off. Fortunately the had been wasn't killed someone to beat them up. And i think they have a lot of evidence. I don't think they would be pursuing it if they really didn't. Because it is always so hard to prosecute these hired hitman kind of cases but you know there that side of the family may believe no just because he was friends with this thug of phone conversations are being misinterpreted. He would never have hired someone to do this. This is ridiculous. This person did it on their own for whatever other reason. That's probably going to be the defense. So he writes this long thing l. b. and his aunt dina the victim rights. Okay yes of course. You're going to share this on your podcast. Another opportunity for you to tell a narrative. Good luck something like that and So that's pretty juicy. This whole thing is really sad but yeah it's juicy Let's see what else i wanted to. Okay so claire. Crawley from the bachelor. She has been on and off with her guy. Dale and clare crawley was the oldest bachelorette. She got with dale. They broke it. Dale moss broke it up. State gotten back to well. They're together get. She posted a photo my boys with dale and the dog on him Also matt with the beard still not love with the beard that who was the first black bachelor fell in love with rachel They were together during the pandemic and found out that she went to an antebellum party in college and there are other controversial situations that she involved herself in. That looked very bad on social media. They broke up. He said on after the rose do your work. I don't even want to hug you. Nothing to do with you. We find out he continued to call her pursuer hafer come out Which are like dude. You know play with promotions. well anyway. He posted this weekend the two of them together and she's hugging a young boy because he does a lot of lake. Girls boys stuff boys and girls club stuff. So it's clearly her with ask on hugging this little boy. So and he did say and people we dating. I am not pursuing relationships with anyone other than rachel. so we'll see what happens with them but then he posted a photo which appears is chai interpreted the real love of his life. Tyler it was What is his name. You know tyler. He's like was in. What was his name. Tyler cameron tyler. Cameron is matt best friend and they. I guess we're friends either of them. Ever did the bachelor. And i'll never forget the episode. I brought it up to my son. Drake you remember right away. It was actually the date that matt took eighty on and katie is the new bachelorette. That's airing. I think the seventh june seventh and this is the first episode and he takes katie on a date and they trick tyler who comes to visit him. I think they already like hung out once and then he meant that says to tyler hey and when he sees him for the first time they hug so much. It's like crazy you would think you would have thought this guy. You would've thought that they're a madly in love with each other. Or be that tyler cameron and he were foxhole together and both almost died in some war and he thought he was dead and then he came back from the war two years later and they were to like army buddies hugging each other. Okay so hugs them like that. And then the trick is tyler. Let's say taylor henry. Sorry tyler cameron. That is going to get a massage at the resort and matt and katie are like telling the professional actress. Who's the masseuse what to say into to make him for to make tyler think. This is the weirdest massage ever then. They're like oh and the big reveal is that's going to replace the actress. And give him the saw and they zoom in that hand and on this particular date wearing a cropped skintight black turtleneck skinny jeans a crop the crop leather jacket to go with it matt did. And he's like six five so you see his hands start rubbing him and he's laughing and then and then he turned around. Tyler sees matt and that entirely on the savage table like on his stomach. Turns around and matt just hugs. His greasy body gets the grease all over his mock. You know tight turtleneck and it's like the funniest thing that's ever happened giving an opportunity to just hug him so much anyway. Go to his instagram. The pitcher the two of them is just two men in love. It's just lovely. And i'm not saying anything i'm just i am saying it. Just tell me what you think I think it's just a fun thing to follow and get into. Because now i just think maybe they're just fucking with us because he does seem to be that he's actually really into rachel. Scott peterson that Famous coach scott peterson trial. The death penalty is off the table. The question is will he get a new trial. This with the fire gone girl. This is lacey. Peterson who on christmas eve went missing. And she was like nine months pregnant and then eight six eight months later. Her body and her baby's body came up on shore and scott. Peterson went to prison for her husband. He was having an affair that was revealed. His sister-in-law meaning scott's brother sister has dedicated the last twenty years of her life to proving that he he is innocent. So someone said why is she so into. Where's the brother. Well i just think the brother and everyone else in the family just doesn't wanna be on. Tv and i think she's kind of been like all the face of it all spearheaded but i think to some people at home. It looks like are you. A of scott peterson now. I think she's just like had a done enough of this. I know that these things don't match up and if you did watch hulu doc on it. There were a lot of things. But i don't know how i feel. I go back and forth. I could. I think there is a lot of doubt as far as the things that were brought up in the trial that he does deserve a new trial and i would like to follow that new trial but i really do think what makes more sense and as more believable is that i think he was a serial cheater. I think that this is my theory. Lacy peterson out. That he was cheating again with amber frye and she just she was a little spicy thing. I had a friend who would call them. She and her husband would call the fighting couple. They belong to say. Modesto country club is then. I think they've been together a long time. I think he cheated on her over the years. And i think she would get really pissed and i think at this point. She said effing done. I'm fucking done with you. Scott and you know what i've got a baby now and you you're going to get the hell out of this house and you're gonna pay for this baby for the rest of his life. Eighteen years plus college k. starting to be like shannon dougher and not. Make sure that you've got to college in the in the divorce papers. And she's like so get ready. You're going to work your ass off. You're gonna give me half of everything you bake. I'm gonna live in this house. You're going to be a shitty apartment with your girlfriend. The massage therapist amber frye. So get. And i think he just was like an i think he probably smothered her or strangled her so there was no blood. There was no anything that they can find in the house. And then i think he. I think this is what you know wrapped up the body. I mean this basically what the prosecution thinks. i'm saying. I think if you believe with prosecution that he killed her up the body and dumped into the ocean the next day and said to everyone that she took the dog for a walk instead. I think that it was that kind of conversation that would set off a sociopath serial cheater that to do something where he just kind of snapped and then it was too late and then was like oh well but other others would say no. It was totally planned out. But i think being on christmas eve makes me think that no. She found out confronted him. They got a wicked fight and it got physical fast and before you knew it it was done. That's one little juicy crime-free. Oh at see a little bit of real housewives beverly hills so it's pretty great start I am enjoying kathy hilton. And i like that. Kyle does a perfect impression of her sister kathy hilton and you know kathy sees garcia. I thought that was kyle. I didn't even with the long dark hair and the pink. I thought you were in sales. Like my god. You really can't see a lot of people and cheap. Obsessed was like she reminds them of caitlin jenner. I know a lot of people. Say look like caitlin jenner. I think because. I'm tall at our care but they have. They seem to have a similar facial structure now that they're of a certain age and had seen a couple of plastic surgeon. It it it is very. Yeah they remind me of each other and she has that same type of where the mouth doesn't move that much and she talks like that and so oh come on honey. Aw i do dental work on the kids in the neighborhood. And i also cut their hair a character. She's going to be a fun for me to on sutton gotten a lot of shit with the fans because we witness in conversation between the new girl crystal who is in who asian and they start to have a conversation and basically she is saying someone of someone who is of someone of color sometimes conversations happen with bayreuth white friends and they we interpret it one way and they interpreted another and then sutton after i think a lot of drinks cut her off and was like no no no. We're not going there. Were not going there. You know we're not going in this race thing. What i see white trash people on tv. Am i supposed to think that that that that's supposed to be just was really bad. And i think she got a lot of shit from fans. It did not look good for one thing. It was just rude. You just cut her off and didn't let her finish. Let her finish about something. That was very personal to her and she actually was being very respectful when she was starting to start. The conversation crystal was sutton has since wrote a very well written instagram apology. And i don't mean to make that a cliche saying the apology was written. Typed out card on the grid of instagram. Which i do think is the quickest way to get your point of view your apology or whatever. You're not apology. Whatever you wanna do out there. And she just said it was wrong to cut her off. You know i feel badly about it. I'm learning and please accept my apology to the fans. I know that was really hurtful to you. It was a good one. I also think she's got a a solid pure company behind her but yeah it it wasn't good but i think that she can I don't know who who knows. It makes it juicy. It makes it fun so there.

Hello and welcome to juicy scoop very excited to be talking to a new author taylor higgins has written between the stitching and juicy troopers have told me about you. I realize you would reach out to before. But then i reached out to you. This is a juicy book about an unfortunate love story. You had so thank you so much for coming on juicy scoop thank you. Thank you for having me absolutely so just tell us a little bit about how you fell in love when you realize that. This person was not the person who he thought he was. And you know it. Just just start from the beginning. And i'll just get into it all right so we met and it was our relationship took off fast like we're talking marriage really quickly and it was just. We were both really caught up in each other and we were excited. It was fine it was just it was fast We met in new england. He was playing baseball up in my neck of the woods. I'm from massachusetts and we hit it off instantly where'd you. Where'd you read them out. We met we met at an event at a charity event. At the time i was actually miss massachusetts and he was just a local baseball player in the community and we just met and then we started deeming. After 'cause that's how love stories are born these days okay so wait a minute. So you're you're the pageant girl. You're absolutely gorgeous. I'm not surprised you the best teeth. I think i've ever seen in my life and did you grow up in pageants or was this something. You just did fly. It was my first one. And i just someone was like you should do it and i was like no i would never and then i did it and one and it was. It was amazing. Change my life. Obviously but i met this guy. And now i have a book about him. Okay so you meet him and he's hot. I assume in the book we call him scott schuyler so you mean scott and he immediately what search. Pursuing u yes. Like zero to one hundred. He's just like i can see being my wife. I'm talking like a few weeks. And typically i mean we might think that would be a red flag to me. I was like this is just i. Couldn't we were so similar. And i couldn't help but go along with everything really We met just started taking off but after a few months like little things little red flags started nothing. That like worth making you leave someone over but just a little details like we couldn't have an argument without him crying uncontrollably on the floor and i was just like all right. Maybe maybe there's something in the past will address that but not right now Like what was this. What was an argument. That would put them in such a tizzy. And were you guys at this time. So he was twenty five and i was just in my early twenties. I was twenty when this was happening so it was a little bit older than me to a point where i thought he could control himself something as small as just not like he was very you obeyed his mother and in the book i kind of questioned whether him and his mother had some sort of like a romantic. It's very very strange. But they had this hold on each other and if i didn't obey what his mother wanted Than we would just it would cause a huge fight. It would ruin the day if we didn't like can you give me an example of how the moms influence was in your relationship. Yes so she was all she needed to be with us. Always we were in her presence. She would have to be there and if i was like. Hey let's go on a date ourselves and mom couldn't come. It would be a problem if mom wanted to sit with us on the coach and cut his toenails while we were watching a movie and cuddling things like that and i was like. Hey this is so. Weird should be like rubbing his toes with lotion after giving him a pedicure and i was just sitting there and and then if i confronted him about that he would be like. I don't know why everything was. He was a problem. And i'm like just stuff like that. And got worse progressively an only child no but he was the oldest of three boys and it was like they didn't have other sons it was just like just him because my dusing because he was the golden boar because he was the successful professional baseball player. Yes and the family came from small town. Georgia didn't have much and i thought well. Hey if this guy makes a big we'll be able to live large larger than we have been at least and at that time was he wealthy being. That was a professional baseball player. No so this is what's very deceiving about. He was just. He was playing in minor league baseball for the boston. Red sox organization. But he hadn't made it yet to the mlb he hadn't made it to the actual roster so he's playing in pawtucket rhode island where they have the affiliate team And he was making not even fifteen thousand dollars a year. He had no money. That was the thing and his mom bay clung onto him like well he might make it. You might have money some day. So that was their way out. Basically and did you introduce them to your parents. What did they think yes. So when he stayed he stayed at my house a lot too because he was always travelling. They live in hotels. Those guys And my parents they welcomed. They welcomed him into our home with open arms and they they liked him. I mean if you met him today. He's very shy timid attractive. Obviously there was something that led me to him and he's quiet so for him to have this like second third fourth identity. It blows people's we haven't gotten we haven't gotten to these other identities so no so you're keeping your mouth shut over the mother son pedicure sessions on the couch and and then what would cause him to get so emotional over. What you think was just a simple argument would be the what would be the argument so because he was from georgia say i wanted to go spend a holiday in boston with my family. Because we hadn't seen them. I would want to take him away from his family for a short period of time and he was like. Hey i'm always on the road. I should be with my family and something as small as wanting to spend christmas with my parents would upset him to the point where he would throw himself on the floor and then eventually it got. Obviously there were bigger problems down the road things like you know finding out about these second fourth identities and that would really cause bigger problems frost and he would just explode on the ground who come apart just because i would tap into who we actually was so we started so small things like a pedicure but then it just grew so. How long are you guys dating before you found something that was really deceptive and explain what the deceit was and all of that right so two months in. I just moved to georgia for. We're just a few weeks. I've moved all my stuff there. Multiple suitcases whatever And i got a message on facebook from one of his ex's and she was like hey. He showed up at my house last night. I need you to know this when she said that i have a young daughter at home and he showed up to my house and he was crying in my driveway because he wants to be with me again. And i know that you just came to georgia. 'cause i was very vocal online. Of course as most unhappy people are About my relationship on social media so she knew. I was there and she said that. And i'm like so. I confronted him. I was like. I showed him the message. He was like people. Just wanna ruin our happiness. gave me the whole run around and i was. I started packing my stuff because she had screenshots and his phone number was in the tax off and and he just that's when he was on the floor crying sobbing may be was basically saying that nobody in the world wants him to be happy. And this isn't the first time this has happened. I should have left then. But i didn't so. Did you believe him that. This girl is crazy trying to ruin his life. Or what was your thought to me. Part of me thinks it at the time. I did think that she was just jealously and dated briefly. And i was just new and i didn't know if they had i mean i knew that he had met her daughter. I didn't know what connection there was. But i knew that they dated briefly and then he went away to baseball. Baseball took him away from her. And i felt like there was unfinished business so i didn't know if she was just upset over that and i i stayed regardless i stayed. I didn't listen to that. I thought you can. Anybody can make a fake text message. Okay so you're continuing right now. What are you living off of. He's making so little and you're dropping everything to be with him for weeks here and there. Yeah so we would stay at his parents house. My parents house. We're i mean we're very very poor. I just started a career in real estate. I didn't have much. I was in school. So whatever i had. I had some savings and my parents really sponsored the relationship. Because i mean it's not like we had to do much we're living at parents parents house but Whatever travel we did. Have my mom and dad did help us a lot. Okay okay. so what's the next Like bombshell that happens. I would say there's so many i would say that. His personality started to change. In the fact that i just notice little things like he was bring his phone shower with him or phone was always flipped over. Just like those little details that you know. I just didn't sit well with me. And then my in the middle of all this my grandma. My grandmother sorry passed away. So i kind of just left that whole situation on the back burner and i was like i really need. You don't need a shoulder to cry on right now so we fly a home to boston. We're going to my grandmother's wake and he's like throwing a tantrum in the parking lot. He's i haven't eaten today. You need to get food so everything was always about him. Like weddings funerals. Whatever it was it was always about him and then there was that my cousin also getting married that same week and he ruined her entire wedding and that was an absolute just. It was just terrible now. I want to hear about that. I saw a photo where you wrote something. it's you walking down the aisle as a bridesmaid. And you're like see. I'm smiling here. But i was terrified and stress. Because i knew you'd freak out. I mean that was walking down the aisle with the groomsmen. Which it's like you know you you get set up with what other groomsmen is like your height or whatever. There's not even like you. Don't sit with these people you don't walk down the aisle and but you knew he was playing this weird jealousy game already with you putting all this extra stress on you in putting you in a situation where there's nothing you could do so you so you already knew him well enough that you're like he's gonna be weird about me walking down the aisle with this guy who's like knock great looking average whatever. No offense to the guy was in the photo but no it's true and he all day long. He was upset. Because i had my hair and makeup done for the wedding and it was like why do you need to look like one of those guys like. Who are you trying to impress. When he didn't look good for. And i can't tell you how common this is just from being on tiktok and establishing a presence with the book people come through identical things like this. This man exist in multiple forms so back to the wedding. He was upset with me for getting my hair and makeup done and we already. The day was already ruined but then i had to walk down the aisle with another man. And i'm like here. We go so he's in the audience. And he's shooting me daggers. As i walked down the aisle and from there on it was just. He hit the bar heavy after that and he ruined the rest of the night. How did you wasn't morning. So how did he ruin the we were so we got into the reception and he would not talk to me and i had. He was upset with me. Because i had to go wait in the back with the rydell party because we are about to be introduced into the room and that was just setting off and i'm watching him drink beer beer after beer after beer and he doesn't. He doesn't drink well so that was upsetting to me. But i come out and then you usually dance you share for stance quickly with the ends and i had to dance briefly with this other man and that set him off so i went to go cry in my car for moment because i was having like a breakdown and he followed me out and he was trying to get me back in and we ended up having this huge altercation in the parking lot and the really screaming of like shree stuff. Did anyone see it right. My uncle chased after us. 'cause he was like something's not right so people were like what's going on with them and so by ex now is he's trying to get me out of my car. I just wanted to moments. I'm just. I'm sitting in my car because it's like middle winter and up in boston and she's trying to get me out and pull away and my hand hits the car door and now i'm gushing blood bleeding. All over my dress leading all over him and then my family starts to come outside the bridegroom. Everyone's coming outside and know what's going on. I'm in my bridesmaid stress Look like i was murdered. It was bloody everywhere and so my parents get in the car. We're going home you left. We left. I couldn't walk inside. I was a foreign to the reception was. Did you guys even eaten yet. No they were just starting to serve dinner so your parents take you home. And they're They like all right. What the hell's going on with the students. Yes and the next morning and now this guy could tell you story and make you believe it. And so the next morning he was like i just drank too much was so apologetic but they were so many little things that i couldn't even explain to me. I felt like. I didn't even know what. Hit me He he told a good story. And that's what kept me there for song. it sounds. It sounds so foolish and crazy but he was so good at making me question my own reality and that's what i think emotional abuse i'm a. I'm a huge advocate for emotional abuse. Because when you're just beaten to a pulp over time and those little. I feel like it's like chipping away at you and then you're confronted with an opportunity to leave and it's like you almost don't want to leave because you're just so broken already. I couldn't face the pain of leaving him. And that's very distorted way of thinking but it's my rationale really and I mean it just sounds like you're dealing with a toddler like between rolling on the ground and crying to like looking at like a toddler and being that you know eating too much sugar. He's going to have a breakdown. He didn't have a nap today. Like the amount of stress you that you have when you're in one of these relationships where you really are constantly thinking is in a good mood is something going to piss them off like you're juggling so much extra stuff when you shouldn't just be like the cute bridesmaid and having fun So okay so then so. This wedding thing happens then. Then where are we in this. You accept him back. You get your dress dry cleaned or throw it. And then and then. I start by posting a lovely photo of us on instagram. Of course telling the world that we had such a happy and beautiful time so afraid to confront my family after that but they everyone's very forgiving and they just they didn't see the behind the scenes. Luckily it just looked like it was just an accident. And that's what we played it off. As i kept him i kept going in the relationship And then it got worse surprise I found he ended up going back home by himself. And then i found his laptop in his closet which he never used and i was doing. Laundry wanted to make it special when he came back home. Everything's all set for you. And i opened up his laptop and skype is just magically opened. And we don't skype. So i was like this is gonna be fun. And there's just lists of women and Different porn sites interest. All these names and then there's also men's names too. So i was like interesting. Thought nothing of it. But then i was like i don't know And then he thinks you think he was also frequenting gay sites and gay man. I now know that to be true at the time i've been. But yes so he was doing it with men and women and so but luckily for me. He recorded everything that he did so he would have these chats like. We're doing now i. I could see the person's face and it would be a split screen. The person i would see him or version of him below the waist and and i would watch him play out and he was so dominant he would bark these orders these women and they would comply and there was no. He didn't have a type of skin. Color weight height side like hair color. Like nothing mattered. There was no age. Age was a huge thing found. Some underage girls found some girls that were much much older like grandmothers and they were very proud to be grandmothers because they talked to him about his grandchildren. These chats it was so disturbing military wives like people that were just really lonely. There was there was no in between. I didn't i did you. Did you witness any guy on guy action. No i anything from the from the men. So i was like i mean. At least i didn't see that But it was hard enough to watch the women and just see what i saw anyways but they would undress for him and he would make them perform in in a way that he wanted to and i was watching this and of course. I'm like i'm watching it. My mom walks in. She's like hey what's going on. I shut my computer. And i'm like nothing i like. I was watching live corn. And i'm listening to my wife. Thought would be my husband bark orders to a stranger online. Whose triple my age. And she's undressing herself and she's on chore of it and she's like scared and he's loving it just it was horrible and were these paid women like was this was paying for it just all girls that just thought he was cute enough to face time with it was just. It was just random people. I knew it wasn't paid. Because they would be like as soon as he got what he wanted from it what he needed when they completed what he needed He would just be gone like the thing would end and they'll be like hello. He's still there. We gotta talk later and it was just dead like you're dead to me and so i'm like there's he has no emotional connection to these people. This isn't real but what what do you need. So and what was your sex life like very normal and an normal frequency or was he trying to do kinky stuff with you not even know he was. It was normal We didn't have crazy sex life because he couldn't last for long. It was a very short-lived his performances so because he was on the do you ever think because he was like you jack leading with all these other women like eight times a day. Yeah maybe i mean. I think that he wouldn't even have time for me. But he was the one to initiate it and i was like after that. I was like damn. Why do feel like it. You know so. What did you do after the discovery of the laptop. After i saw that he came back. I made him fly home to boston. His truck was in my driveway. So i knew that he had to come back anyways imply back because i wanted him to waste money on the plane ticket and would you act like everything was like everything was to get them back. Okay yes yes. I played like a day and made it like nothing was wrong because if i confronted him over the phone he would shut down completely and like block. The i would be up late emailing him when i shouldn't have been things like that. He just shut down. You couldn't tell him he was wrong. Ever one of those people so he comes back. I may comply home and when he comes back from the airport. I didn't pick them up. He arrived at my house. My parents house and the my laptop is open. And i just start playing one of the videos. That was prerecorded. And he charges at me slams the laptop close and tries to tell me that his brother that was his brother that was his younger brother he was using his ipad and this whole story and i did not believe him at all Of course but i know what his manhood looks like But it was the way he was able to tell the story. It was almost like i was already now. We're like a year and a half in. This isn't like this was over a gradual period of time so I was already. I feel like down and out and at this point he could make me believe whatever i wanted to just to keep him there and at any point that he was telling you that was his brother was any point of you going well. Maybe his brother and he do matching dick's wait. I did see a face along with it or it was always like dark and it was always below the waist and i knew him obviously because he would he would be like sorry. I gotta go to baseball lessons. Or he would just like hinson the chats and still made you question yourself. Yes yes because i was so gone icon. I lost myself to this man that didn't exist and it was. I was in a very low place and even still after that whole finding he left and we broke up for a little while. But that wasn't the end of our story now at this point you're not engaged yet. Did you ever get engaged. No okay okay so you break up with them and then what happens. He goes home for a little while and We spend a few months apart. And then it's now around christmas time and he surprises me with a pomeranian and he's super sorry. I've grown. i've changed whatever i needed to hear and i still being very much in love with him. I said let's give this another try. And i don with him. Pomeranians are pretty cute. Yeah she's told that my life. So i was like do you have the dog. Yep of course. Of course. I have the dog but yes so that that that. Got me back and it was. I kept finding little poor of for another example so now we get back together. I go to spring training with him. Which is in fort myers florida. Where the red sox have their spring training and it's valentine's day she's frozen one day photo shoot and i do a little picture book it sometimes. It gets frozen. But what's good about. Zoom is it. it'll it'll collect itself but just start again with your story about You know it's valentine's day. Yeah so okay we. We got back together now. Valentine's day and i want to do something cute for him. So i have a little photo shoot on. I wanted to do like lingerie picks. Just something something. You and. I have little photo book made for him and we go out to dinner and we get back to our room where we're saying and i said i have something for you. So excited to show him and he opens the book. And he's so disgusted that i was half naked or not really the naked. I was just. I was it was. It was nice. It was tasteful. But i did that in front of another man because the photographer was in fact a man and that's ruined the night and we had this huge altercation he ripped apart. The romy opens the closet doors. The dresser drawers. He's now throwing clothing everywhere. Pack your suitcase. You need to leave all because of the concept of me being in a room with another male like a male photographer. And i've heard people like people on tiktok will say something similar has happened to me. I've gone to sephora. I'd have my makeup matched on my face. The the guy was a man that was doing the nation match in that. Set the man off and i was like well if some guys doing makeup at mac he's obviously not straight to. So it's like anything to just four cheerier girlfriend and constantly make it like you did something wrong to hurt me. You hurt me. And it's just yes everything was just always He was never like wrong in anything and it was just this. It was really just a confusing time. Because i didn't know why he was an all all in all. I just kept thinking. Well he has that weird childhood is upbringing was very strange. Parents relied on him a lot. I thought his past made him the way he was. And i was like i can help you. I can show you what love is. I want to your broken. Obviously but why like. Let's get to the bottom of that and nothing. I did like there was a problem with literally. Everything and i think he fed off of the control and just watching me fall apart. I think there was. There was enjoyment in not so like par to the valentine's day experience at you guys are getting along. You're having fun. Are you sneaking and checking on his phone. Are you still suspicious. Like what is that. Like when you've already discovered such You're crazy stuff. Yeah i was definitely On edge like. I like those things never left me. And that's wasn't healthy for me for me to even be still dating him of course but he would do things. This is how like he was about his phone. And this another red flag but he would take a shower and if it was needed to be charged or whatever and or if you need to leave it for a second he would wrap the charging cord like around it several times Put it in a certain position. Wipe the the screen clean of any fingerprints and so if it were touched in any way he would know he was very aware like he was very intelligent which didn't help me but he would make sure that i if i touched it he would know i would but did you have is password. Like even if he didn't do all that stuff which you have been able to figure it out yes. I really didn't have an opportunity. He made sure. I didn't have an opportunity to i compared to him and people like him who do abuse in this form. They keep you in like a bubble and they don't want you to socialize with people they don't want you to really have access to many things. My world was so small it he just cornered me into a place where i thought that i was was all i had. It was just. I didn't have many opportunities to keep going and checking on him. Now what were your fights like. Would you screw back at him was at both of you. Screaming could ever get physical like what was it like. So i'm very calm. I don't i barely even raise my voice. I won't kind of just like will he leaves. He's one of those people that just will then i'll leave. Well they'll just go home. But i would be very calm than it did. Turn physical he would. It's of course it would just start small like anything and then it would get grow into much bigger problems But it yeah it did. It did get physical ever to the point where you like wanted to call the cops or anything. Yes yeah yeah. We had some the day that he came back to the not to jump around but the day that he came back to the house to that laptop scene in the book. I was insulting his parents. Because i'm like they enable you to just continue on like this like i reached out to his parents begging for help like we can get him therapy. He just needs something. There's obviously something wrong. And they were like taylor. No there's nothing wrong You guys will figure it out. And i like your parents. They enable you and then he gets so upset when i like strikes a chord like a stabbing him in the chest when i say anything about his parents. His parents can't be touched and he throws me into a wall. And you know this is at my parents house. And drywall falls to the floor and he's just like so upset that i could be insulting parents that he actually picked me up by my shirt and he headbutted me like so hard that i saw stars and i was just laying on the floor and he. He walked out of my parent's house right after that night. And that's when. I didn't see him for a few months and did you. Did you tell. Did you tell your parents what happened that he had bud you. How did you explain the Broke drywall in the house. I said that i was moving stuff around that because it was just like It was like almost like a perfect circle from where it happened. And i said that i was just moving stuff around to get him situated and it was patched up. It was totally fine. No one even even questioned it but then you did but then you did tell the but oh we're not seeing each other anymore and then he shows up two months later with the dog. Yep yep so now. This point is still only making fifteen thousand a year. Yeah yep he never really so we had ended up having a career ending arrests and he never making it into the major leagues. Because of this this what was the arrest. Dui oh were you with him when he got that dui no nope. He was kind of a closet drinker. Closet smoker. I didn't know him to be a drinker. we'd go out and he'd be like oh no. I'm good coke that's fine and But he just had another whole identity. But i didn't know when he would keep drew alcohol under the seat of his car and Cigarettes and whatever else and the what they don't tell you in baseball is that they only test for certain drugs and a lot of narcotics aren't tested for do expose a lot of the mlb in this because there's a lot of drug dealing that goes on in the system so while i was dealing with his sexual addictions and his multiple personalities. Whatever the hell was going on it. Mom and dad's house. He also had an addiction to pain pills that weren't tested for in the system And alcohol no. Of course you can drink so he had. He was juggling a lot. And if i told anybody i would risk ruin his career and i looked at it as well if i ruin his career and we have no future. He's going to have that. He makes any money now. But i mean there goes the rest of our lives. What is he going to do. He had no other skills even playing baseball for almost ten years at that point so and so then what was the moment where you're finally like free of them and started to really realize the kind of demented relationship. You're in so the last time. I knew i had to leave. And this is weird. Because i i went through the physical all of that like all of those weird situations. The thing that got me to leave was we're in at spring training in florida. Still this is right. After that. Valentine's day and i asked him because like you said we. Where are we making our money i said. Hey can you get me. He's gonna dunkin donuts. Can you get me a bagel breakfast. I'm starving and he said. Taylor i can't support you. I made that very clear that. I don't have the money to support you. Ask your mom go somebody else to an so. I watched him. He went stuck doughnuts himself. A coffee and muffin bait. Whatever you got. And he got back in the truck and eat it in front of me. And i went right home and i i was like mom. Please help me. I have to get home. And i have to figure out a way out and i started planning it. Took me a few weeks to get like a flight. And i had so much stuff. Pack like a maniac. And i had to plan basically my escape and it was like a week or two after that. I ended up flying home and i drove him to the feudal bat. Day was normal. I kissed him goodbye. Because i didn't want to make waves and cause a fight and i flew home and he came home that day. Never even asked me why left. Or where i was my stuff was gone. He was ever even questioned. It can never texture again. Nothing had posted a picture on instagram. A few days prior he didn't he didn't have an instagram. Had a twitter. Twitter was baco back than back a few years ago and He was big on twitter so i posted on instagram picture from florida. Fight over that. Why did you leave. The was the same day that i left. He just said why. Would you ever post the picture if you like that on on instagram. Whose attention do you want. And i'm just like the pitcher was a sexy or whatever was just a regular south of my face. I think crazy and so would he wrote that to the. That was the one text you got like a few days after you laugh. Never he never actually said where are you. it was the same day. It was the night that i i was driving home from the airport. My parents had picked up. And i got in the car and he was like he never never said where are you. Where did you go. You just never said anything. And then when you know how he got home. Because i drove him in his truck. And then when you got home and your stuff were you like okay to the parents i. I'm really done and were they like okay. You really need to be done. Taylor like with everyone now. Like we're not gonna let you. We don't care how cute the next dog like. We're done with what he tries to do. And when you back and Yeah and my debt. Go ahead no you go ahead for my dad actually. My dad said the reason why we never made you choose like we never said you can't see him anymore is because we knew that you would follow him anywhere just because that was the that was the mindset i was in and he said that i'd rather have you here where we could help you close to us in massachusetts or whatever And knowing that we could come to you if you needed help rather than let you follow him around country because he was in a different city every single week and so when did you realize. Did you go to therapy. When did you realize what kind of relationship you're in and decide to write about it and share about it. How did that come about. I was it was after we had broken up and i was trying i was that rebuilding that ugly place of just finding who i was and starting from nothing and i felt like my whole world. That imploded on me. And i just didn't know where to begin so i was hesitant to tell people why we actually broke up because it was headed. Know how to just have to what happened. 'cause look so great on instagram and then i'm like well. He has seven different lives. But i started like just giving little bits and pieces of it and the more i talked about it the more people i didn't even know or people i did know would say something like that has actually happened to me too like identical things and i was like really because i feel like this guy is like one in a million like no one could possibly be this bad it and i was starting to bring people to tears just by sharing why we had broken up and i was like. I think that this is a lot more common than what i had originally thought. And i mean this guy was a narcissist true and true and that word is overused. And i don't like to say but it's true he was he lived for himself and there are people out there that are just so similar to him and i've unlocked a world on tiktok as you know i've seen some of my videos on tiktok and the the amount of the hundreds of thousands of people that are like i'm reading your book and i'm verbatim like word for word. I going through these exact same scenarios. And i was like really scary. And so what do you think it is is it. Is it a certain type of guy is it. Are you think they're aware of it. Like do you think any of these people are fixable like. Is there anything that if the person's in it before they leave that they could maybe try to fix it. Or what is your opinion of it. Since you have talked to so many other people that have been in these weird relationships. I always ask. What was there like if anybody's seems like damage. I'm like what what his mom and dad's still married. What's going on in the home Nine hundred ten times there is something in the past there. Some sort of trauma if it's not in the home. It's definitely something else that that it's a death or something. Big has happened in their life. And i feel like people. Now have such a hard time healing. We don't heal properly. We just rely on. Other people were just jumped to another relationship. We don't take the time. Do the work to figure out what we need. And i think to an extent people like that are just hurting so bad prey on on innocent people. I think that they take advantage of like people's kindness. And i also think there's you know like when you first start dating somebody and there's that like that knew that introduction you're like hey what's what's going on like what. Tell me about yourself. And i feel like they like that because they can hide who they really are for a short period of time in the at and for a short while somebody will be so interested in so like and that was the beginning of our relationship. It was awesome. It was and he was so great. He was everything i needed. And i think they were the people that are addicted to that initial stage and then you get so wrapped up in it. You're like shit. I can't leave now and it's it's too late right. You're chasing those first three perfect months for another year and a half when you have left it month for exactly and so do you have any idea where he is now. How many years has it been since you've been broken up with him. It's been about five okay. So i- every single girl but has come after me has reached out and they were like he's doing the same and it's now year after year goes by like they're like same. I read your book. Same he he yes like has not strayed. They're like the way you described the family. Everything about the conversation. Like same. And i was like okay. So he elopes with a woman and They get divorced two months. After and then next thing i know another girl's pregnant and i'm actually very friendly with. I like to think that he chooses pretty decent people they always do. They always do. They always do and the woman that he the mother of his child. She's wonderful we still talk to this very day. I feel like we're like sister wives and some odd way and she's great and she's like she actually found him on all male dating sites His his app his iphone. Or i watch whatever whatever. It was uploaded to their tv. 'cause it's like an apple. Tv and she went through and saw him having relations with all different men In this is in their house that she lives in with this child so she wait wait she he was having guys come in the house when she was like out with the baby or something guys had come over and she had video of it or she had proof of from text meetings. It was it was videos. This guy likes to record his his things like he's big with the video which is great for people like us see it like she sent me one of the videos that the initial way like the way she actually reached out to me and wish she sent me the video via facebook message of him with another man and so my quick. Who the heck is this. i open my phone just. I'm just casually watching. I'm like oh my god. So i guess maybe he just. He needed a new gender because he probably maxed out all the women. I don't know what his professional but he's doing the same thing. But with both both genders. I mean i think. I think when someone is that reckless sexually with with both genders obviously. They're bisexual but i really think they're just like hardcore sex addicts and what's scary about those people is they keep upping upping it. And that could you know be sf sem for with with then who doesn't want it or am not at all accusing this person of it but you know look at the rush. Docker thing you know. It's he was. He was seeing strippers and he was on adult websites and he was on ashi madison. And and then they're like okay. What's the next thing and they go to the next thing. And so it's like you don't know what the next thing is going be. It could be extremely criminal. Unfortunately for you know so. It's just a very i mean. If you discover someone like that that's in your life you have got to you know. Try to get them help but get away from them like go get help. But in the meantime i'm out of here because it is not going to good direction. That person is sick. The problem with people like that too is that they don't see that there's an issue so like nothing was ever his falls and they can admit they anything wrong so trying to get them to therapy. They're like but nothing's wrong with me. It's you and i'm like everything was always me so it's impossible. And meanwhile you're in love and that person doesn't and it's super confusing so when you say he had all these different lives. Do you mean he had these different lives because he was seeing these other different than we are seeing men because he would drink like a crazy person behind your back or were there actual like fake identities that he was doing or just personality go ahead. I think both like he would have multiple personalities shore But also like he was the baseball player and he was the role model so many people any played along side the super bowl. The oh my god. I can't even world series champions go sports and and so he was. He loved children. He was a coach and he was a huge figure in the community but he also like mad crazy sexual agenda and would meet up with strangers but then had like he had just so many different layers to him. That i couldn't even keep up in the more. I found out i was i was like i'm not even surprised like nothing. Could nothing can surprise me anymore. I've seen it all so so when you so the the woman who has his child obviously they're not together to she get any child support or anything from him no known she's been like completely on his own on her and and as he tried to visit the child or anything no. She said that she was for a while before she found that whole thing on the tv she was living in a home with him. They weren't together. They were trying to the co-parenting thing and he would just leave sometimes without even acknowledge acknowledging the child and so she's like i'd rather be completely gone. Which is the more ice choice. And so then you you write the book and has you heard anything. It's been out and available with your success of Promoting on social media. Have you heard anything from him or his family. Nothing and it's been published for two years now and they never have once reached out. We obviously share like mutual acquaintances. Some of his family members have reached out to me and they were like. Yeah this is spot on but they have never his parents. Bed i just. I heard that they just haven't read it. So when you you put the book out there it was two years ago and now do you feel. When did you decide to start doing tiktok now. Kinda like a resurgence. That i want people to know what i love about writing a book when people you know. Write a book or think about writing a book. I always say you know. It's a piece of property. It's it's timeless. Whatever it is if it's your story it's timeless so even if you do it and maybe it's not a huge hit or maybe it doesn't get published you still you still have this piece of property that could be something and you can promote it later on on tiktok you can. Maybe someone will want to make a movie out of it years later. So that's what i really love about because people don't books are dead or whatever they're not dead and they're a great thing to do if you have a great story to tell and it's very hard to do when there isn't a big paycheck making right But tell me a little bit about your publishing process and where the book is now. Because i think that'll be really inspiring people. Yeah so i just. I mean one day i opened up my mac book and i was like. I'm gonna make a book of this story. Because i feel like it has content but it was also relatable and if i was bringing strangers to tears i was like we'll make. Let's see if i can make an impact on you know a a bigger audience so publish it. Immediately right. after publishing it became an international bestseller in the first two weeks. And i am an independent publisher. So i don't have a publishing house behind me. I my own marketing team. I'm everything i just published through amazon. Which is why it's an amazon exclusive And i'm just my own like. I'm the marketing team. I m b salesperson. And i am the pr everything so two years goes by and it was. It was fading. All things do and tiktok came around. And i felt like i had. I still had people to reach. And i'm very passionate about this subject because it's common and so i just started posting videos on tiktok. And when i tell you. The response has been so massive. I felt like. I republish the book but even better it surpass my the amount of people that bought the book have been inspired to write their own book. have just said that they had like i was mentioning earlier identical experiences similar conversations and it's changed people's lives. I've stopped people from walking down the aisle from getting married. It makes you take a second look and it's also helps people that are in this situation and they don't even recognize the abuse 'cause they're so caught up in like let me help you and that was me. I didn't even really recognize it as abuse at that time. I wasn't like oh my victim. It was just. I was just hurting and people are like. I think i'm in a relationship based on what you're sharing. So it's it's. It's something i feel like this generation just really needs to talk about the conversation. It's just not being had. So i jumped on tiktok and relaunched my book basically and now. It's doing phenomenal. it's reached a lot of interest with producers. i've actually just been renting producers from different. Tv shows that. I like dexter you. Being some of the the producers that have reached out they just slide into my dm's and they're like can we see the script and we ended up. I sent my script to a few different people. And there's a lot of interest around that. So i mean i. It's two years old but i mean it's we're just getting started with the story. I think that's so great and did you try to go traditional publisher route first before you do the amazon. Yes so i queried a bunch of different agencies and there's no lake front door to the publishing world or to securing an agent or film worlders. Just no way. So i was like how do i get in queering querying. I'm just not hearing back. Nobody responds and swipe publish the book. I was like fine. Let me see how. I can do this on my own. And i did well with it and now i'm starting to create a again just with the same story because i don't have an agent and i think i of course it would be great to have help and but there's just no way and i feel like i'm kind of an outlaw in that aspect because i've just taken the the back door into everything but i'm still having success with it And so there's just no wrong way to do it. I don't have anybody behind me. And that's okay and you know. That's what i think is so great about this time you know Ever go oh the internet and social media so horrible but then there's then there's stuff like this you know where people that have a dream and have a talent can make it and you know and maybe their their parents aren't in the business. Maybe they aren't living in hollywood. Their dad isn't you know. Works for simon and schuster but the point is is like you have this aim you you know do it and i'm so happy that you did and i'm so thrilled that you came on the show. The book is between the stitching. It's available on amazon paperback. Some get the book. Read the book. Tell everybody where they can follow you if they want to share the thoughts. Get to know you and follow you for more content. Yes so i'm on instagram. And tiktok and my username is the taylor. Higgins on both of those awesome. This is great. I mean i have not had an opportunity to Because we scheduled this and and you have to order it and it takes a little bit just a couple of days from amazon but i am definitely going to read it and i'm so excited to see what happens because i definitely think this could be a movie. I think it'd be you know. I think make a great like lifetime movie. Have you been in touch with lifetime people. Yes there's a few people from lifetime that are very interesting book okay lifetime. I'm like this. Is lifetime this is a lifetime. I think it would be great for for lifetime. And then you know but you know it's gonna lead to other stuff and you wrote one book. You should write more so the process of the process of actually writing a sequel to between the stitching because people wanted to know what happened afterwards. And that's coming up this summer actually see. That's great that's awesome. i'm thrilled. Well thank you so much. I appreciate a taylor. Thank you so much for having me. Okay i just wanted to leave a little breather. Thank you so much. So i'm not like i said i'm not exactly sure it'll be within the next two weeks but You know like.

Faith and Filmmaking: An Interview with Mel Gibson

"Everybody greg laurie here. You're listening to the greg. Laurie podcast and my objective is to deliver hopefully compelling practical insights and faith culture and current events from a biblical perspective to find out more about our ministry. Just go to our website harvest dot org so thanks for joining me for this podcast tonight. I have the director of that film academy award winning director and actor. Let's welcome mel gibson to the harvest crusade. Thank you thanks. greg bird estimated. Come along you're honored to be here and honored to be here. They love him l. I love you folks. About twelve years ago. When i was literally when i made this film i was literally getting the tar kicked out of me and it was you people out there evangelical who stood up and supported me and i thank you at the time but i thank you again okay. So it was great. Thanks so much you're welcome. We love our first of all like you got some big guns going on there. Come on yeah arm wrestle right now. Let's go take jot braveheart. I can't win okay. It's a dead heat. I was talking with bill backstage. I said one was the first film that you were in. And he said. I was in something called mad. Max i said yeah. I think i've heard of that somewhere. I mean mel has been in so many films but this in particular the passion of the christ. You know as i said it. It's sort of like going back in time. I've only guy went into a time machine and almost was seen it and there are some moments. That are very graphic. But as you've said in interviews maybe your film as realistic as it is isn't as graphic as it actually was the scourging the whipping the crucifixion itself. But why did you make this film. I think there's a tendency for all of us to take that event. Yeah and the extent of the sack of take it for granted and phil mattingly particularly said medically. I think it's been sanitized. A fair bit so that it becomes. I dunno ineffective ineffectual. Not emotional and i wanted to illustrate the extent of of the sacrifice made so i felt that to do a film like that and my own experience contemplating over the years on the passion. My imagination soared and there are readings on the on the matter. That kind of brought home the dreadful reality of how bad the how bad it was. And i just wanted to put that on film to give people maybe a new look and sorta bringing theological perspective to it. Perhaps they hadn't thought of before. Yes they hold the mic. Just a little closer. Yeah we've been hearing a little bit but there go. That's get now mel. There's a rumor. The word on the street is that you're going to do a follow up to the passion and it's going to be written by randall. Wallace who how many of you have seen the film braveheart. Have you seen braveheart okay. Well mel directed that film. He starred in the films william wallace and randall. Wallace wrote that film. And so you. And randall are talking about writing. A sequel to the passion. So it's not gonna really happen. We're we're talking about that. Of course that's a huge undertake. And you know it's not the passion to i mean. It's called the resurrection that's right and of course that's a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don't want to just do a simple rendering of it. I mean we can all read what happened but in order to really experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it's about is gonna take some doing and and randall. Wallace says up to the task. He's he's also as well as a brilliant writer is a great director director. We were soldiers in heaven for real and stuff. So he's a good writer and director so testing. And you have a new film in fact. We've been showing the trailer here at a so-called for the last couple of nights called hacksaw ridge and this is coming on the month of november. And i've i've seen this film. Melwood is nice enough to invite me up to preview it amid. This is an amazing film. It's a realistic world. War two film some graphic scenes but not gratuitous at all but telling very real story of a very real man desmond doss honestly when i heard what this is about. I didn't know who desmond doss was. Why did you decide to make a film about desmond dawson. Who is he exactly. we'll desmond doss was. He received the medal of honor. The congressional medal of honor for courage under fire and he was singular in that most guys who get the medal of honor. They do something in a split second and it's a decision that and they do. Something courageous heroic desmond did over and over and over again in different places in the pacific but his greatest achievement was in okinawa where he saved a lot of men and the other interesting thing about desmond is that he was a conscientious objector and he went into battle without a weapon as a medic as a medic. And what he did was supernatural and he only did it through faith. that's all. He was on armed only with his faith. This man existed. He was a man of faith and conviction never fired. A bullet got the medal of honor for extraordinary feats that he could only chief through the power of god. Yeah that's right. And you made a film about him. And i would say i would say that hacksaw ridge is the best depiction of a christian in a mainstream film that i've seen since chariots of fire. Because he's a hero and he was a hero. You show him standing up for his his show. I'm reading his bible frayne taking a lot of abuse from his fellow soldiers who call him a coward but hey when it was all said and done. He was far from a coward. How many men did he rescue up from. That place. that hacksaw ridge was it was more than one hundred. Wasn't it well. The army claimed it was one hundred and he claimed it was less so they rounded it off to seventy five but he did that in eight hours all by himself by himself. Unbelievable that by his fate. So we're looking forward to seeing the film you know mel. You've you've had incredible success. Of course you were mad. Matt the lethal weapon films. Of course braveheart the patriot. We were soldiers. All these amazing films. But then you go out of your way. And you make films like the passion of the christ and hacksaw. Ridge what motivates you mel to make the faith films films. That faith message. Why do you do it. Who faith is a real thing. And i think that off times well i made the ultimate superhero film in the passion of the christ. And so and someone like desmond. Doss is also a superhero and real superheroes don't wear spandex. And they don't have a lot of three ds special effect but but they do operate on a higher level on a supernatural level. And they actually look an appeal to something greater than themselves and then they do something superhuman. Yeah well thank you for making these films mel and we we appreciate you. We're glad you're here at the event tonight. And just so great to talk with you and hang out with you and and let's think mel gibson again for coming in joining us at harvard.

Let's get to it I'm so excited so Chris Watch. Go ahead and tell everybody who we got with us. So today on the show we're joined by Berry Accham and Berry would which will get in more of his history with the ban in general was a tech for kiss in the the zenith years like around seventy, six or seventy, eight and We had crew guys on from the very beginning, we had Moose on. We had Pixie on from the dynasty tour. We Kenny bar on from the revenge era. So, but this is the first crew member from like kind of the glory years that I think we've ever had on so berry. Welcome to the show. US. It's actually Berry Achim but that's. A lot of people pronounce it that way well. The Ace has always known for saying act so I. I didn't know if that's where the name came from. Give me a Limo Pronto. Role! I can tell we're going to have fun already. Very how how do you get this Gig? Way Back in the day when you I mean when this all first starts for you. How do you even get hooked up with kiss while you're aware Paul, Sharia? Who was jeans? Caq Right Gene Simmons attack. al-shaariya was from my down in Van. Word, Ohio and Paul came home in Nineteen, seventy five became home during Christmas break and he He, said Was Thanksgiving. I'm sorry. It was thanksgiving, and I ran into him, and he said Hey man he goes. We're looking for Guitar Tech. For Kiss, and at that time they were just. You know they weren't in huge right. They were just Kinda really getting ready to take off and And I said well. You know I don't know and he goes well. We need somebody right away. We've been through like seven or eight guys and nobody's working out. They just don't match with as Paul. And I said well I don't know and he goes. You gotTa tell me you gotTa. Give me an answer tomorrow because you gotta be in New York and this was a Thursday. He says you've got to be in New York by Saturday by noon and I, said well. Do you know tomorrow? So the next day I thought about it and I thought about it and I was in a band that time I played bass and I thought well. You know I could stay here and Van Work and you know maybe make it with my band. Right or I could go. On the road and get some experience and meet some people and travel, so you know. It, actually at the time it was a hard decision for me, but you know. In hindsight, it was the best decision I ever made. So the next day on a Saturday I was in New York, and Paul savary and zero. Who was the power technician? Pick me up in the station wagon, and we went to the office, which was then rock steady, and we picked gene and Paula, so I met them like. You know like forty five minutes after I got off the plane I I was meeting jean-paul. Put the their guitars in the back of the car and we went to a rehearsal studio. And that was it. I started setting up the APPS and you know because I really didn't know much about the band at the time, and that's probably what made it good for me for them and me was that I wasn't a huge fan. I didn't really know about their music, or you know anything about them. Really so I just did my job. I did what I knew how to do which was take care of the in. Tune them and all that stuff. So that's that's how I got the GIG. Liked me. They likely I got real good with ace. Right off the bat. He knew I knew what I was talking about, he knew. He felt comfortable with me, so that was good. Yeah. Do you remember what the first show was that you work for them? No. Look it was. All I gotTa tell you it was a whirlwind because we did two weeks of her cels, and and we had it was when the band had just graduated from a writer truck, right Oakland shows, and the band had just started flying the tour before that the prior to that they were all right in a station wagon, and the crew was on a Ryder truck, so they just went to their first semi so I got on right at the beginning, it was like getting on a rocket ship. Right as it's ready to take off. and I didn't know I didn't know what was going to happen, but they got their first semi. And they and we got our first bus, so the crew actually got to travel on a bus. I think it was in. It was in Boston. I or some- somewhere up in the east coast was with the first GIG was. I can't remember exactly. Was it like somewhere? Was it around January seventy-six? Yeah, somewhere in that area I'm I'm looking short. Nobody ever asked me that I never thought about it to be honest with. The of all were were super nerds. Yeah the! I've got looks like. Did you guys want. You can look up the day I'm not going to have all the right dates I can tell you. Well in in January seventy six, they you were there for the three night run at Cobo Hall in Detroit Right. Yes Oh! Yes, that was something. I that was that sticks in my mind. That was a that was a really good show. You know kind of where I really get a lot of respect for the band was during that show I thought. Now these guys are good. You know with all these cameras set up. You know there were lots of cameras. I remember that from the stage and everything. And then we went back to hotel. We're watching. We're in NASA's room and we were watching some of the footage from the from the show. Of course they had the big cameras back then. None of this gopro stuff. Well. That's that's well. Yeah. Those shows are kind of legendary with kiss. Fans 'cause I mean and that was Kinda them. They had kind of arrived with those shows. 'cause I sell sell out three shows in Detroit. That's that's an answer Detroit always just seem to be a real base for that band like they really got what kiss was about it seems. Woken Detroit you know. I think Cleveland has been known to break a lot of bands. You know genesis and whole bunch of bands broke out of Cleveland. And Detroit. They've those have been known places for bands to break out and I, kiss very smart. I, think. They knew that and they knew that they they had to go somewhere outside of their city. To conquer someplace else before they could come back home. It's it's that old saying you got to leave home to make it then you can come back home. And that's did at least that's the way that's the way it played out anyway. Whether it was a meal plan or not. That's the way I played. What were the What were the guys like personality? Wise when you first like they were they pretty interesting. Right off the bat or like did they change over the years? Is Fame kind of kicked in? Yeah they changed. They definitely changed, but the personalities were there. I mean they were who they were. You know as never really changed. He's the only one that I could say and Peter didn't really ever change, but. Paul and Jean that you could say there. Ego got a little bigger as time. When along I you know I have no problem. Saying and I'm sure that they would admit that to. but ace was who he was I mean. He just whether here's a great story when he was on, this was during right after destroyer. After the story tour ended. He was in a guitar shop somewhere in upstate New York walk into guitar shop and they had an old I don't know fifty eight less ball fifty nine Les Paul, hanging on the wall and it was hanging up real high on in the store, and as was just had a t shirt on, and he had jeans and tennis shoes. That was it you know. And he, he said Hey. Can I see that guitar I? WanNa play that guitar up there and the guy goes no sorry man. now you can't play it and he goes. Yeah, but there was a poster of him behind on the wall behind the guitar. He says well. That's me right there and the guy goes. Yeah, right, kid, get Outta here. He had a watch on a what's called A. It was from tiffany called a A. A pulsar. Watch a pulsar I. think Anyway. It was a digital watch and it was engraved. To as freely from Bill Coyne on the back of the lot, so he had to take his watch often show it to the guy, and then the guy goes on I'm sorry. I got to guitar, download and play. So, About, that kind of stuff happened in those guys all the time. Well yeah back then because see they. They didn't allow anybody to take photos of them right out. There make makeup. I was lucky. They let me do it. They trusted name you know. gene was the most skeptical about about all the photo stuff, but you know they always wear bandannas and you know they always hit their face and big John. He was man. You didn't not want him to get a hold of your camera. She's flat out. Like Chris film, out of it, throw it on the ground and step on it, and then throw your camera back at Ya I seen him do that many times. Really. REALLY BIG HEART! The Guy was great. And it was just a show. You know he didn't want anybody else taking pictures, so he made evident that nobody was allowed to take pictures. Nice so big. John's good do Alley Kim. Oh Man, he's great the best. I love that guy. was. The thing about it was the whole crew posture ever rea-. You know McCann pc at the time and Richton Federal on lights. me on guitar sound when I started that to carry ample, and we had to the long Tarkwa it'd be like fifty sixty foot long guitar chords, so I always. In my mind whenever I was working with them on stage. You know Paul would run around and jump around with guitar and stuff and Ace. Would you know they've crossed the cords over? So I had to kind of like it was like having the rains. Lagging train you know or wagon horse. Does that have to make sure those courts didn't get tangled up or they were Paul might trip with those platforms and stuff you know. So. It was I was relieved when we got the wireless custom. We, got the. Guitar System. That was incredible. and. I got a great story. Yeah. Let's hear it. Okay so. fast forward to Love Gone I. Guess was been or see you. Guys will probably know this. You can look this up, but it was Sometime around seventy well had to be seventy seven I guess. And safer got a hold of these wireless systems. I think he developed them if he didn't develop them in. He had a lot to do something to do with them. I'm pretty sure he was the the guy that invented him him and somebody else anyway. He came up to. We were in Newburgh New York getting ready for the tour. We had a big airplane hangar in Newburgh. New York where they set up the whole stage light the sound everything so the bank could rehearse, 'cause what they normally did was did two week rehearsal in a studio in Manhattan somewhere you know s are one of those rehearsal studios, a small one and just went through the songs they were going to do then they would do the you know the live show. You, know full stage lights get lighting fuse all that stuff down. And then they would do a dress rehearsal. You know the last couple of days before we'd gone on tour well, we're going to set up the. It was a perfect time to sit up these wireless guitars, so we were str- putting these wireless things in in these leather pockets and putting them on the straps, and then you know, test them out, and they were unlike UHF frequency bands, so it's like the old television band UHF And So anyway. We got them set up. And you know Jean Paul and all of them had all of them are working all their. guitars were working, and of course now imagine you're you're tied to. It's like. You're tied to a stake with a rope right and then somebody on ties you yeah, and you've been playing time with the cord, and you could never go out to the Front Stanford the soundboard and hear what it sounded like out front. So the first thing Paul wanted to do. Standard soundboard, which is what he did and gene. And so the first song that they did gene was had to sing on that particular Song I. Remember what it was anyway. Piecing an ace, of course, as is like Oh, I got to check this out, so ace goes down the stairs. Policy goes down the stairs and they disappear. You Know Paul all sudden. We see Paul out at Samborn, but then we don't see ace. We can hear him. Playing Solos are coming from the amplifier, right. And G looking around gene does not like this fact that they're not. They stage with him he. He was upset with that because he I think he wanted to be out there, too. Walking around, you know. He had to be singing the song so. after that song was over, he came back over to me. And he says where's as I because you could see Paul at the board right and he goes. Where's it? Because find him right now. So. Often I went out looking for ACE now. This is a big airplane hangar and down each side of the airplane hangar. Our offices like like probably about twenty all the way down the thing, so we're walking down. We're trying to find him. When think he's one of those offices. Meanwhile, they're doing another song. And the guitars took on his his lead. Parts are still coming through. Right but nobody can find him. So. I said I. Don't know where he's at hockey. I don't know either, so we'd go back up on stage and again the song ends and gene goes. Fuck is as Art My to press on it. Yes! And I was saying we don't know and he goes. Find Him now. They gave us one of those monster faces. You know he's famous for you. Guys find him now. So we went back when the bathroom again when the bathroom and I thought. I wonder if he's up on the toilet. You know. Sure as Shit, I got down on my hands and knees, I looked under the toilet and he was. He was crouched. With its feet, the toilet with guitar shoved in their all in this and this regular sized stall, playing guitar. I move. On that's the. That's the Kinda Shit. He did all the time. You did stuff like that, but he's still playing, so you know he's in the vicinity. You just don't know where the hell he's at. It was loud. It was loud coming from the EPA and ship, so we could tell we couldn't hear messing around, or you know making any noise obviously, but we could hear the guitar coming out speakers outside of the restroom, right? So, it was pretty funny. That's hilarious awesome. Man. Never made it into any books or anything. No, that's funny as hell I know that and this is a techie question of a friend of mine named Jason who runs a kiss. FACEBOOK paid I I mentioned that we were going to interview and he. He's asked to get you to that genes base output. Jack was routed out in the back until the alive to tour and seventy seven when he went wireless. The transmitter was in the car. It was on the strap a while. And then in the back of the guitar actually put him in the guitars, but we put him in the guitars. What happened was we had him on the outside on the strap in a leather pouch, and then the the wire came down from the strap and plugged in. It's hard to see it. And then We decided to try to put the guitar, so we put him in the guitars, but the problem with that was if one of those things fucked up, or you needed to change a battery because the battery you know went dead then. Oh, it was. It was too hard to get to to change it not during a live show, so we needed to fast way to do it so then. We put them back on the straps again. because that was easier much easier to do. We could just change out the path. We actually had another unit that we would just slide in plug in and take the other one out. But. It was into a guitar then we would have to unscrew the plate on the back and all that stuff so Gotcha. Okay cool well I just WANNA. Make sure ask that for him because he was like. Make sure you ask him. This and I was like I. Don't know if he's going to know that, but yeah, you have a good memory for that stuff. You mentioned Paul Sharia mic camp. Easy people like that and we talked to move cancer. Who was he was with kiss early on and I think. He left right before you came in he had. He had a bad injury, but From what he had told us the crew in those early days was really like a brotherhood I mean 'cause like a kiss show even back in those days it was more sparse, but I have to imagine that show must have still been a very backbreaking show to put on every night. It was trust me. It was but. With the crew was tight. What I was going to tell you when I told you about you know Chevrolet and and McCain MPG and everybody. Hawkeye Recap Dixon me. We were all very tight very tight. There were no there was no rivalry or animosity. We were very close, and we helped each other out all the time, so we all got along and but we were very very protective of the band as well almost like secondary security guards. If you will, we took care of them to. You know if we were out and we're at a party or whatever with them or whatever? We watched out for him as well. Like for example There was there was a thing with blue eyes to call. And We were playing Nassau Coliseum. In new, Jersey. I can't remember exactly when this was, but the lowest to call is opening up the show for us and Eric Bloom was getting a little testy backstage in the hallway about how they were the ones who came up with the bombs with the flash, bombs and stuff. And with concussion bonds that they used on stage, and they actually were the ones for started doing that, but he was like you know Kinda getting like. Testing between him and gene and they were, they were Argon stuff, so we had to step into twenty them and just say hey, you know you guys just need to chill out. Does it really matter you know? Just do your show because kits used to open up for Bluest to call? So now all of a sudden Lewis Cross opening up for them right right, yeah! So but Eriksson. I I became good friends with Eric when he's a pretty good guy. But what I'm saying that we we defended those guys fiercely. We protected them. I don't know how it went on after I after I left, but we were a very tight crew. And I got imagine to at that time `specially you know kisses on the rise, and like say bands like Blue Easter call where a couple years ago, kiss were nobody's and they were opening up shows. That Blue Oyster call was the headliners on now just a couple of years later you know be oh, see their opening for kiss and kiss one of them bands where I got imagine pretty easily. The other bands playing with them can get pissed off even if the band no personally do nothing to them just by the fact of looking at them and going. Were there any bands that ever really came close to? You know big explosion in the back between them and kiss. No, not really well I'd have to think about that one, but more I. Can tell you more about the bands that got along with them and those were. The band's didn't see him as threats. They didn't seem as a threat they've. They saw him as A. As a music marketing machine, and and that was bands like sticks and rush and people like that they would come up the guy Who is Tommy? Shah from sticks. He come up and ask me about some of the business. Techniques the marketing techniques that they use so a lot of the bands were in awe of kiss just from their sheared marketing aspect because they were the first band of really go full out marketing since the Beatles really. that or unless pooper or whatever but. So a lot of things were curious about that. You know they were about the whole operation and how it worked you know and they could see. It was a well oiled machine and they could see. It was like it was like a bulldozer. I mean kiss was like a bulldozer, so those other bands that just didn't have makeup and costumes and stuff and they just had their amps. You know th. This was pretty intense for them. You know. Yeah so. But. On the good note, one of the one of. My favorite bands and one of the Nice guys of all time was rush and they got along great. with kiss on great with them get. He was a great. They're all great guys. And they had great time. They would come out on stage. rush would come out and throw pies at the end of the tour. They'd on being phased and shit like that. You know and kiss wouldn't let anybody do that kind of stuff unless they really liked him, you know. Oh I heard some rumors about rush like throwing a bunch of Marvel's out on stage. Is that true? No wasn't rush, but I can tell you that story that was in Gothenburg or good and birds Sweden. And the European which was a grueling tour, but anyway we got to. Sweden. And we were playing ice rink and they'd. They'd block the stage off halfway. They put stage halfway and to one end of the of the thing, and they put a big curtain across it because they didn't sell enough seats, right. And I don't know what the security it's like. It had, and they had no security at this place. People were sneaking six packs of beer and I mean drugs everything you can think of and they had. Folding metal chairs with the metal legs and everything right. And it was set up with On top of an ice hockey ring. So. It was cold as hell in their bay way. Some idiot brought ball bearings. He brought up a sack of ball variance like pretty good size marble sized board. Fall bearings all right. The crowd was so rowdy and so drunk It's like the whole crowd had just come from happy hour. It was incredible. We, we could see. It was like it was like you know how if you're in a bar or something like that how you can feel the energy like there's something going to happen. Something's going to solve is going to have more. You can feel it. And so the bankrupt on stage, and about the second song, this idiot throws ball bearings up on stage, and Paul is shit in his pants. Because got you know. They got them seven inch platforms, right? You step on one of those ball bearings with those platforms. He could've killed himself right. And then some idiot takes a chair and bending the leg off of. Ben's the leg off of it and throws that up and hits peters drums like a how like. Like one of the legs with the sharp end on a hit peters drums, another guy threw a chair up on stage so by the third song the band walked off. They said fuck this. We're not doing this. Wow what a crazy show! Thank you were working for him at the like, there was a story that they would mention interviews about they were playing somewhere down south, and somebody hurled like an M. eighty up on stage and hit Peter Right in the face with A. Do you remember this? That was before I think it was before me I. Don't remember listen. Okay, you are all you were there for the Lakeland Florida show where ace got shocked though right? Louis I was I ran up on the on the. Platform and came from that side Hawkeye went up. The or chuck went up the Front to get him. And Then we brought him backstage and put him in a chair, and he just sat there for about two minutes now. We didn't know what was going to more that he was going to have to to. You know not do it or not. What it turned out it was a TRIPP lite. One of the police lights was wired And it touched the fog machine. We had these old handmade fog machines that we made out of fifty five gallon drums, and we put the heat element in the bottom, and we got drier hoses and put them on, and then we would have a basket on you. Put Dry ice in it, and then you could lower the basket down into hot water, right? One of those things you know one of the somehow of the trip wires Scott. Touched up against one of those fog machines, and that's what shorted it out. And that's what sent the. You know the League through there. So. Yeah, we were pretty freaked out, but he turned around and after a few minutes after by say. Three to four minutes. Something like that was all about five minutes he goes. I'm going to go back out and so they went ahead and finish the show. Wow, which was. I thought. Because he was pretty shaken up. You know of course. He wrote that songs me about that. Right yeah, yeah. It's bad. He said He. Thought he was going to die said. But I gotTa tell you. Most of my stories are about ace. Because Ace was you know. How do I say it very colorful? Very Street Savvy Street smart You know what you see is what you get. You know had all the same friends that he had grown up and they they were still as friends. All same friends came around. You know he he just was as was as. But. Let me tell you a really good story. When we were in that town in Gothenburg Sweden. The day we got in We got in early and It's it's like it's kind of like a mini San. Francisco had a trolley guard on the middle of it had a streak going down there was there was this fancy restaurant down at the bottom of this one straight close to our hotel and we pulled in the ban got an earlier because they flew. We got in about five o'clock that night. And, as we're driving into the hotel with the bus, we were on. We look out when she as walking up. The street is walking up the hill up decided street barefoot. With a bottle of ood in his hand. Right. Barefoot with a bottle of bad at five o'clock in the afternoon. He's got to get that picture. Hockey look at each other and go. Oh, my God! What the Hell's going on! You know because first of all. He shouldn't be without his security guy. which at that time was Doberman? You know Rick Anyway Yeah Rick Stewart, he should. He should have been without him. Or Big John or somebody and he was barefoot and his pants were rolled. Like you know like? I'm Sawyer thing yeah, and So I I go Hawkeye. We gotta get up so I had the bus driver stop as we gotta go. See what the fuss going on. There's something going on. He's by himself and he's barefoot. So how kind of run over to them and go? Hey, what's happened? He Goes Hey, Curley. What's up? He goes coming on drink like that. We we go okay, so we go around the corner and we go into this far. And then we get him then to tell us what's going on us what what's going on and he goes that I didn't like that restaurant. Where you're in right well, he wouldn't tell us exactly what happens, so he goes, but let's go back to the hotel. Can I stay in your room for a while? Would he ask if you can hang out in our room? Right. He's in trouble. and. So! We Got Sheriff Sheriff so. Go back to the hotel and it's one of these old older type of You know hotels the. With on the green on out front you know and you can look out the window and see the street with a child car and everything, and so he got i. go what's going on? We get to the room. I said what's going on. And then all of a sudden, the phone rings and it's Rick Stewart. We call them Doberman and And he goes. Have you seen as an AC? Shake his head like don't tell him and I. Said No, tell him you just saw him out front and I. Said Okay so I, said well. You know what hockey I said. He just saw him out front. You jump on the back of that trolley car and he was heading up the street. So we see rick run out the front door under the green on and run up the street after the trolley car. Looking. At apis in a room. I. It was too funny. anyway, so I was. In trouble for what did he do? I was he burrell? Okay, so now here's the here's the kicker. In the restaurant it was it had like a pond in the center of the restaurant with a wall around the pond about. Like Pool. It was about Oh. No foot and a half high, and in the center of the problems around, and there were tables all the way around it, and there was a bar on one side of it. And they had these electronic remote control boats. And so you would send your drink, or you'd write your drink order on a piece of paper, and you send a boat over to the bartender knee. Make the drink. Put it in the boat. And you had a controller at your table and you. Would you know guide the both back to the table while eight in the gadget master that he was, he had to control. The controller he had to have that, so he was messing around with control it, but of course. Starts running his ships and other boats and knocking over other people's drinks. Right. got. Vote into somebody else's vote knocks over the drinks finally puts down, takes his shoes on roles pants up and he gets in the pond. and. He goes. Hey, it's concept art and he goes over, and he grabbed one of the boats picks it up and dumps all the drinks into the thing and of course. On, crazy. He jumps out of the thing and I don't know how this happened, but somehow you got away from everybody and got out the door, and that's when we saw him walking up the street. Oh God. I love. Stories. God's. Delivered drinks today. That's two. Loss. You got so many as story I. It's weird to call him. Your boss but I mean you were taking for him and Paul like why. How demanding was he as far as what he wanted to quit wise and sound wise. Wasn't demanding he just. He told me what he wanted and I did what he wanted I didn't really question it. You know I He had his sound down. He knew exactly how he wanted it, and he pretty much kept the same. He had a couple of guitar pedals. Phaser and We had an echo plex. For that guitar, Solo. And I used to run that and make it go faster and that during that whole thing but other than that hit sound was a straight You know less pulse down through marshalls was there wasn't It was that he you know that. Jimmy page type thing. The see, say for a while there. You were doing that for Paul to at the same time. What's the difference between ace and Paul respect? Well Ace had a quarter watt. Marshall head into cabinets to Marshall Cabinets four tents or I'm sorry for twelve. And eighth at two hundred watt has in four cabinets. And, then of course we might balls, and we might days one of each of the cabinets and sent that through the main PA but taking care of them. Really what is entailed was taken care of the guitars and tuning them. RE-STRINGING THEM I would new springs on all of them about every three well twice a week pretty much. And making sure the thing was cleaned the guitars off the next day after after a show because they had. Grease paint on them. They had make up. They had sweat. They had smoke. you know everything you can think of? They had confetti on them. So we'd have to. Cars really good. Right you know the next think about that stuff. No you don't think about it unless you're in the middle of it, but there's so much going on that stage I mean between the bombs and the fire, and the and the confetti cannons, and all the different stuff back then we had going on. Yeah, and it just. It just got bigger and bigger. Yeah I was GONNA. Ask because when you came on board. They were still using what we refer to. As the alive stage setup puts us. Pretty bare bones, but with the candelabra, this wall of amps but in. To the destroyer tour comes along, and it's like a quantum leap forward as far as stage production goes where like, because even if you see photos of the story of stage from above, there was a lot more going on with that stage than people in the crowd even saw because like even the floor had different design and stuff on it. And I saw pictures of like the amps behind ace like there was part for the wall in front of the amps would like, or the AMPs would explode. You remember all this stuff. Well Yeah I had to I had to load the amp up every day. I had to put it back in. It had a hydraulic. Pressure's on how to hydraulic on it and in the speakers were tied to this hydraulic thing, and what I could do is just push the button at a certain point in a song. You know wherever? Whatever I don't even remember what song was, but I pushed the button and the speakers would fly out of the ant. Nice onto the stage. It was great. Yeah, but let me tell you about the destroyer thing that was that the destroyer tour marked a lot of It marked a lot of I. We went from two semis at that point and and two bosses. I guess to. eight semis and three buses. So it was a big shift. In the site of the show and there was something like fifty people on. We had to scenery trucks to start off with. And it took set, destroyer was think the first one was Richmond Virginia the show and it took us three days with the cancel. The show postponed. The show took three days to set the whole thing up. So, many moving parts so many moving parts that scenery I mean. They had to carpenters on the road for Christ Sakes who does that. Show. What it really was, and you know the makeup thing and I always felt that way because a lot of the makeup artists that we had were. You know had worked Broadway you know they'd worked at. The whole Broadway scene. Anyway, so destroyer was really what marked and I was I was in for the recordings of destroyers well. I, was there the whole time they recorded that alum? And Yeah, that was pretty intense, Baba's really. Yeah the, there's a lot of stories about the making of that record about how? As Ron was pretty demanding. Push them beyond what they were. You comfortable doing most of the time. And and also the story about you know Peter Stating that they were. If you were. Were you there for the recording of Beth? Because Peter Talks about how pollen? We're kind of mocking him through the recording that song. Stayed. Didn't gene hated that song? First of all Jean had a real aversion to them doing a slow song. And when they started to rehearse it, and this is how how became a thing where Peter came out on a stool, and saying was because gene. WanNa stand there and play a slow song on the he goes. What am I supposed to do? Hang out by this tree back here. You know look like a jazz player. You Know He. Liked that idea at all. He thought that was totally out of character, and he didn't. Because should do a slow song period. He didn't think kiss was about that. He didn't think they should do a slow on. And So that's kind of how that happened, but I was there when Peter Walked in the studio that Dan Baba's said at sitting at a piano and Peter was whistling the tune. Here was just whistling that the melody for it and Bob says woody whistling. He got us this. This idea had this morning and he goes well whistle that. Let me see if I can find the cord so Bob. You, know plucked out some chords on the piano to it, and that's how that song came about. Wow and. And then there was another time where Bob had gene and Paul come over his house 'cause he needed one more song for the destroyer. And he goes well. We gotTa Song so once. She asked him over tomorrow morning, and so I had to bring guitars over two aspirins house, and was just an impala as in the MI. And I sat down, and they want, and the wrote King of the night time world. Wow. Yeah. It was really cool. I was in awe. It was like you know. I just was drinking it in because I was there was part of it. You had a front row seat to everything exploding, so as a member of the staff worked for this band. would. Were you is blown away as everybody else by how quickly it blew up? You know what I always use the analogy that it was like launching a ship from. Launching a spaceship from Kennedy Space Center. You know it the ban. It was like being on a rocket ride. And, it was like the ban especially during the store thing because it went 'cause you know when I started it wasn't that big a deal. Then feel like that big a deal with all the sudden within a year's time destroy came out and all of a sudden. It just took off. Okay, and it was big and you could feel it. You can feel the energy pined it. You could feel the motion the momentum going on. And and you knew something big was going to happen. Then of course, kiss alive to, and are you know all of that? love gun and I was in on that one and rock and roll over and. Give alive, too. So when you're. When you're getting to be that of the the era of kiss where you're talking about like love, gun and kiss alive to are you privy to any of their conversations? That would eventually lead to the solo albums. Yeah well what happened on the solo albums was they were working on them individually on their own, you know. Each guy was working on his own songs for those islands. And so they didn't really, they weren't really share them with each other. You know and I never saw him really sharing with each other. Until the albums. I was I wasn't on any recordings of them. So must they must've done them I. Dunno periodically over time. I don't know how they did that to be honest with you, but I guess I guess what I'm asking. Is You know you're there with them? All the time? When their own on tour I mean what kind of stuff leads to that decision be made because what other bands have done that. You know, say Oh, we're going to take a break. We're each going to put our own album. No, WE'RE GONNA. Get back together. Where does that even begin? Well, a lot of that stuff came from bill, aucoin their manager. that I think that was his idea. To do the solo albums. not really whose original idea it was, but it sure. The big, I guess came from Paul Jean and Bill Coin. Those well there was. There's been I mean any no, I, don't you're probably I mean through kiss fans like we. It's one jean-paul. Paul kind of her stories over the years as far as what led the what what what happened, but there's always been discussion about. one story that they like to talk about for years. was that the ban when they did? Kiss meets the Phantom of the park when that Iran the set as in Peter both word like super unhappy, and and especially as and said that they wanted to leave the band, and that gene and Paul and Bill Aucoin were like well. Why don't we just all you make a solo album? We'll all make solo albums. Do you think that's the truth or do you think that was kind of a PR line problem I was with I was with a day. And I left the band ban started my own band in Utah, and but we went down for that show and we hung out with them. I was hanging out with they that day. And he was pretty upset. He got pretty drunk in. You know pretty stone. Because if you watch. Him? He was pretty out of it on that in that movie I. Mean He was Pretty Pretty Buzzed? And Yeah, and there was definitely some shit going on there between them. You know they. Didn't like the fact that that as drink. You know gene. I mean. We made a bet with gene. One time I was on Might have, been. I forget what I meant was now. Oh! We said if if one of your songs. Makes the top Ken you gotTa. Go Out and get drunk with. US 'cause he'd never drank. And he goes okay I will right I think it was Christine Sixteen or one of those songs. I don't even remember which one was now and And it it went into number nine or something like that and we said come on gene. You gotta go get drunk with as well he he wouldn't eat chicken. Doubt on that so I. Never Appetite drink or do drugs, so he hated the fact. That as we get drunk and you know. He would mess up as would mess up sometimes, but most of the time he couldn't tell. I mean it was hard to tell occasionally. Out of out of tune step of most the time. It didn't matter because the songs were pretty basic anyway. They were the foundation was pretty basic at the core. You know so he hated that and an Paul in him were real tight, and then Peter was kind of A. How to say he was not a very strong willed individual. He you know he kind of let them dominate him a lot and he was kind of a complained quite a bit sometimes, but yeah, you know I thought he was the best drama for the man. I thought he was the perfect drummer for the band. My sound I thought he was. You know he's not the greatest German the world, but he was perfect for that band I thought yeah, just like John Watts. For the stones, you know, yeah. So So they were definitely Thinking about replacing them. Now I do know this. The band that I was in in Chicago was called. Lois Lane and we were working on trying to get a record deal. We did all original music. We're kind of like sticks in Boston and foreigners. That style stuff. And we played over Chicago all mid Midwest and one night we were playing at the thirsty whale in Chicago and I got a phone call whether the manager came up and said Hey, there's this guy on the phone. named Paul Stanley wants to talk to you. I said okay, so I went down to his office because that was before cell phones. Of course guys right? So what down office and it was Paul and he goes. Hey, Gary. How's it going and I'm like it's called fine. Go, what's up, man? I said. Why are you calling me at the thirsty whale in Chicago on Tuesday? Does, he goes well I. Just want to be a print with. You want to be up front with you because I do WANNA. Go behind your back, but we went to audition your drummer. And I said Okay I said well. How do you know about him? And he goes well. See had seen our drummer, and so had Fritz and. Big John and somebody else had seen our drummer, and he was an incredible drummer. He actually said his drums on fire. He did a whole fire solo that people come just to see him to his fire Solo. Anyway, it would have been perfect drummer kiss. You couldn't have picked a better drummer if you're GONNA replace Peter. You replace him with this guy that sets his drums on fire. And so. So. Give I say okay, so I give Bill Paul's number and and they'll call him and talk Paul and they were going to fly him out to audition. We're GONNA CLIMB OUT. When I'm up in the Waldorf or something like that and the first year he would've made six hundred thousand, a penthouse apartment and a new car. And, that's exactly what what What was the guy that I got are? Harry car. That's exactly what He. is around that time like nineteen eighty. Yeah, Oh, yeah, it was right before that. Yeah! Because they call. Before, they got eric before they tried him they were going to try bill and the only hand list of about Fritz told me later that. For instance, one of the ones Fritz as told him about. about our. Drummer Bill Bill. So I told Bill I said. Bill said what should I do? What should I do you know? I mean God? I said Bill for God's sake. There's the only thing you can do is go audition. Because even if you don't. If the GIG, you can say I auditioned for Kiss for God's sake. That's like you know you gotTa do it. He goes yeah, but what about our band I'm GonNa ruin our Ben I said. Don't worry that that. If you get in kiss, you can help our band down the road. That's the only thing you know just go, do it? Don't think about it. Just go do. And he turned it down. 'cause are singer. Right now. Fast, forward a couple of years later whenever it was replaced as I get another phone call from Paul. I'm Paul Goes Hey man. We want to just your Qatar player. Yeah. We hear about your guitar player. I said okay well so I gave John or call now. John Verner was incredible guitar player he played with. All the trends were quiet riot Frankly Bonelli grew up with him. He played on David Foster's I. You know the producer David Foster. He played on his first album. Yeah and when he team, he played on lead guitar on on this album for David Foster, so you know John was an incredible. It's our players so. They sent him a ticket for you know. To get gave him. flew from SALT LAKE TO LA. Put him up in a hotel and guy. I forget how much games money five hundred dollars or something. And then they had come down to this rehearsal studio, so he came down to the nurse, studio and he jammed with Paul and gene and I. Think Eric was there at that time on. I don't remember. Yeah Bay for like two and a half hours with him. And Paul really liked him but Jean did and John had blond hair, so that was really a kind of. at that time. They, yeah, they wanted somebody. He was tall enough. He definitely had looked apart any foam an incredible. It's like. Like, a Jimmy page Paul cost off the type of guitar player. You know bag company that just just perfect guitar player for I mean he could play. He can play. Actually Lead Guitar Wise You could play rings around as okay, but he also had that bad company type of rock feel to play. So, anyway, he auditioned and gene didn't. WanNa go for Pawlak Gene, so he didn't get the GIG so wow. If you WANNA. Go on Youtube. There's a couple of songs it's. It's called Lois Lane. SH-. It's called It only takes a minute look. It only takes a minute by Lois Lane. It'll come up on youtube and there's a few other songs on there I think there's four or five songs on there. That's cool and you'll get to do. Yoga to hear the drums, and now and I think we recorded that in seventy nine I believe seventy, nine or eighty. Something! That's let me ask you. Go head. I did so off on that, but I. I thought you'd find it interesting. No, that's interesting. Yeah Action! That's a super interesting, especially because we're both a little obsessive about that era of when Acer's be getting replaced, because while we have a history with Vincent, but I'll I'll I'll tell you about that sometime. Other but the like so like when destroy to or starts that. That's like when things start really blowing up. Beth becomes his hit. They start becoming instead of just a cult like Bam with basically older teen audience. They become an international thing and no one of the the big shows on that tour. Was the Anaheim Stadium Show and I'd love to hear your memories of that because that was a huge show for the man. Great memory of that I think you guys will cruciate, but when we got the Anaheim show, that was the biggest crowd attendance. That they'd had to date. Pay was forty five thousand people in that stadium and I went to get for some reason. I had to go to the hotel to get to guitars and 'cause they were playing. They were they were practising or something at hotel side to go in a limo and gets guitars and get them and I came back with Jean Paul. And and we got, we pulled into the backstage area, and it was like you know the typical Hollywood backstage with all the trailers and you know, Ping Pong tables, and all kinds of shit back there, right and we pull up in the cars and the and. you can see the stadium from where we're at, and you can see the crown and gene and Paul got out of the car, and they just stood there like in amazement, and they were just staring at how big that crowd was. And Paul Gusman. Look how many people are out there? So it was like to that at up to that point. That was the most people they'd ever played to wow. Flowing into the your? Ted nugent. Yeah, there's some great footage of that show, but I can't imagine being there because it just it was I mean that had to have been a very landmark experience for for everybody that was involved with that show. Well, it was and you know Fanfare and a hot Sam man. They had one hell of a PA set for that show. And it sound was awesome. But you know the funny thing was when they started the show. You know and they come running down the. Right, gene, come running down the stairs. They had the fog going off right gene fell and in the video gene fell, and it looked like he running down more stairs because he just completely disappeared all of a sudden is he popped up out of the fog. But That! It just a I'm sure the crowd and seed either it just looked like if somebody's running down the stairs and they just keep going into the basement. That's kind of look like. And all of a sudden, he popped. The Mary was again saying at the? It was great. And thinking about stuff like that I mean kisses a band that the live experience. There's so many moving parts in your adventures. We kiss you know. I got imagine stuff went on sometimes. What was your biggest Oh shit moment in trying to produce a live event? Well one comes to mind one big one. and. That was La Forum, which is now the staple center First Time we went there On tour was I. Guess Seventy Five. I don't remember the days this you know you guys could probably look this up anyway. The first time we were there. They played five nights in a row. And seventeen thousand people each night. They played five nights. We set up once and then we didn't have to tear down till the last night, so it was incredible. So we set up and I think it was the. I believe it was the first night. I don't remember which night was, but anyway, so the stage came, it was around railing around the back of the stage. The stage touched the corner of the stage just touch right up against so then they sold seats behind the stage for some reason I didn't never understood this, but for some reason they went ahead and sold seats behind the stage. So now usually dove stayed on one side. Like over by me in big John State over by Jean on that side of the stage well. The show starts right and I guess about Oh maybe second or third song into it. Some kid decides. Jump on stage and he's GonNa. Grab a guitar. So he jumps over that railing, right on the corner of the stage, and takes off across the back of the amp line and John Big John Season now on is Berlin down behind this guy. He's a big guy. Right and it's not not a lot of back there between the light stands and the drum riser, the base camps, and all all the cords and fog machines. There's all kinds of shit trip. So big John's running towards my side of the stage from Jean side from in the bath, chases his kid, and this kids running as fast as he can. Towards the guitars and I I was coming around just in time to see this happening. I, put my head around and I. See John. Coming I. See this kid coming and he either is going to crash into the guitar. John's going to tackle this guy. You can tell he's just going to tackle them. No matter what and he's either going to crash into the guitars. He's going to crash into the AMPS. Thank God! He chose the amps. The back of all those martial stocks, and they all fricking came down. Like building blocks fell down on the stage cord snapped off both Paul and has guitars went out. and. And speech on grabs. This guy picks them up hall down. Thank God they didn't hit the guitar because if they had the guitar. Those are sitting on the back of the stage would have went off the back of the stage I I don't know what would have happened anyway. Ace just casually grabs his guitar chord, and Kinda saunters in his way that he walks across the stage, and he's tried to into jeans base and. So he can keep playing right. Gene. So gene chases them away. He he like literally. Does this monstrous thing and chase as away? By the. Back to the other side of the stage I had hooked one ahead of and one cabinet. So I. had one had one cabinet through the microphone on the PA so ace was hooked up and then we hooked up pulse we got a cabinet and a had, and for Paul Hooked Up, and then Hawkeye and I and everybody pitched in, and we got all the whole stacks that back up. But that was pretty intent. Yes Oh well. The meant that comes with a job like that. I love it, yeah! Let me, let me propose a two part question, so gene is well known for knowing that he's bedded down over forty six hundred women a. do you think that's true from what you've seen and be? Did the crew get to enjoy the benefits of gene? Simmons with the groupies as well. Why do you have about three hours? We do now. I could tell you this I. Don't know about the actual numbers, but yes, it's true and Yeah JEEZE! I get a story about that. He One of the tours and here again I don't remember which one he used to take. polaroid's of all of the girls and he would do this. He would like you. Try to score a A STEWARDESS! If they happen to be in the same hotel, they were going he'd try to score them and get them. You know, lay them. You know before soundcheck. Then you try to pick up a girl at soundcheck. That was hanging out. Bring her back do her. Come back to the show. And then he had Eddie blandest Kirti Guy, he'd have him. He would look for girls in the audience that he wanted to be with, and he would have Eddie go tell them. What hotel they were in into. Come down and wait in the lobby. So then when they would get back to the hotel. He would send Eddie down to get a girl, and so he would come down and get a girl and. Take her up to the room. And then as soon as he was done with that girl, then any would take that girl out the back door and he'd go get another girl and bring her. Wow I. Mean it happened. So. Numbers are there. The numbers are there. But well I'll be nice. I won't say some of this stuff I know but anyway, so we got to the end of that tour and and he did a, he put together we had some videos. He bought a black or white video camera. And he sent this Oh. It's when we hit la for those shows. I told you about where the marshals came down. Turnaround an invitation to everybody on the crew to come to his hotel. To see the screening of what he called, his title was common sluts. Limitation Invitation Panther invitation to come and the screening of comments sluts. Hey. We were in the La and we. We were there for five days. The last thing we wanted to do was go to fucking jeans room and look at all the girls that he had screwed that toward. You wanted to get our own. Most, proud of it though. I. WanNa, be over faulty thing. Is that true? Yeah A, great, story. When that hotel in Seattle that round when that's on the bait. It was the one where led Zeppelin stage at the edgewater. Yes yeah. Well that the edgewater hotel that was there's a story that. That ace was yet glued all of his furniture to the ceiling. Is that true? That was in Tulsa Oklahoma. Here for that. Let me. That's one of my best stories you. WanNa hear. Okay. Fritz Pasta wait the sound man monitor mixer. Decided for that tour that he would bring a chain saw on the road. What use would erode? He have for a chain saw. On the road with a rock band. Right. I was rooming with threats and we were staying in the it was shared and hotel and we were on about the. Tenth or eleventh floor of this hotel in Tulsa. And we had the day off and the band and everybody was on the same floor, which never usually happened, but for some reason it did this time. and. Fritz were sitting there and phone rings, and it's ace ace goes hey. This is Fritz there and I said Yeah. And he goes. Is it true that he had? He brought a chainsaw with him on the road. And I said well. Let me let you talk to him. So I gave phone to France. And Princeton. Hey, Fritz! Let me borrow your chain on. I don't. I don't know what possessed Fritz to. Actually, give him the song. Yes, not a good idea so. Wrong on day, drunk musician on his day off, drinking champagne, a fucking chainsaw in his room. It can only lead to that. You know so. So he, he had one hundred foot extension cord cuts it. They didn't have the gas kind back then so. He takes the cord chainsaw and eighth opens. The door grabs a chainsaw shuts the door and throws all the lots on the. You're going to hear the lots. Closing, you know as he sets door. And and we're I'm like Oh God fritzy? What have you done, man I said. What do we need to have to tell him? You had that you could send. No, that was a story. Almost see what he does. Like just yet. not not very long later all this. You. Can hear this. This chainsaw all the way down the hall. I mean it's so frigging. Right. People are sticking their heads out of the room. Th and going on right. All of a sudden icing big John run down the hallway pounding on store ace, but All of a sudden, the managers there now we've got about five or six people out of outside of ACIS door, the pounding on the door and meantime the. And you know we saw furniture up I mean you can hear it right, we we can I out there. We're all standing outside the door. We can all hear it, and we're all looking at each other and holding our heads and going Oh my God. And all the sudden it stops. and. The big, John Allen Open the Goddamn door now ace so. You hear you hear the lot. The latches get unhooked on the door. Right through three latches, and he slowly opens the door and he goes come on in. And we can all kind of kind of sneak in I mean we kind of walk in very slowly because we don't know what we're going to see and as we're walking in. All of the furniture is all the legs. Cut Off all the furniture. The tables chairs Dresser and it's all. Put back where it's supposed to be. Okay! And Although that? He gathered dollar legs up and threw him over the balcony out into the parking. So he kind of cleaned it all up and put all stuff back. And he just looked at a saying. What we what we somebody. What were you thinking and he goes? How was free little little Japanese? let's see. I was a little shopping. Site thought cut everything down to size. Founded like Oh my God. What's going through your mind? Anyway I I forget how much it cost him. I was also without. Yeah. And we. From Sheridan hotels for that one. There's is truly no one like case freely. It's funny because I have a ton of stories about him, I'm I know the one about the fishing thing in Seattle, but I've a ton of stories about him, but not any about Paul and I was thinking about that today I'm going. And I did an interview with John, Hart and Tony Man and I was thinking. I couldn't think of many stories to tell about Paul that would be the sort of thing that people would really want to hear as far as you know extracurricular. You know off Stage Act. Now? He seemed what else seemed to be a seemed like. He was always pretty well behaved, but I mean we. We had Tom Harper on. who was Paul's Tech on the dynasty tour? And Paul mentioned that Paul are are Tom mentioned that Paul could be kind of sensitive and hard to deal with at times. Did you have to deal with that? Yeah but I didn't really have a problem. I didn't really have much of a problem because all I. I realize that all I had to do what they wanted. And then every take care of itself so with Paul I just I just play the game with them. I just play. His tack can nice to him. When every asked me to do, I did I just didn't bitch about it so. Paid off because at the end of the. Destroyer tour. He walked out on stage on the last show and he handed me a check. For Thousand Bucks. You know from Paul Stanley for thousand bucks so. He must alike. That's good. But like to I mean they got. They got bigger and bigger over the years. Did you notice the division between Pollen Gina? Nathan Peter. Because of you know the excesses. Well, you know you know there's endless stories about what fame does to people. you know basically fame either you reach a point where you want to have time to yourself, and you don't want all of that fanfare or you eat it up like genius jean-paul they love the fanfare Peter. Didn't care and they didn't care about all of that. Peter and Paul loved playing rock star. They loved it. I mean you know that's what they were? And, but the PRN as a you know. A! It wouldn't have mattered if he was in kiss or who's in some local band in upstate New York. He would still be in. The same guy would still done the same thing? That's kind of why I like him so. You know like a win when we hired Hawkeye to come on. Later on I let Hawkeye take. Care Paul I took erase and I worked out great because Hawkeye's super quiet. Super Nice Guy really she'd get along with everybody did. It was perfect. So he would just take care of Paul's Guitars, and I would take as those pretty easy gay actually yeah mask. All one thing I got because I know some your facebook page. You've got these photos of the band, not wearing makeup, but wearing dresses. Can you explain what the Hell's going on with those pictures? Yeah I gene. When I took those pictures. That was the last show of the. Kiss ally to tour and it was in. Fort Worth. And, they did I think two nights there and sticks opened up the shows. And it was, there was a big backstage area with a lot of people backstage I think because it was the last shows of the. The trucks. Parked all the trucks and the buses and everything behind that the stage it was amazing, never seen anything quite like it. And So On the way to soundcheck. On the last day. Paul decided they drove. By some dress shop or something impulsive, Hey! Reps go in unless go into the store and let's get some dresses and dress up like women and show up a at the GIG in dresses. Just. Through, it was a fucking with crew. And wasn't a bound anything else just because about doing really at the end of the tour because it's always a tradition to do something crazy on the last show of a tour. It's always been like. Something, crazy and so they did. They arrived with those outfits. But nobody had. For me, and Eddie and I think Lydia was there and I think she had a camera, but it's me Eddie, love at a Landis. That had cameras and I always carry my this Kodak instamatic I had a little pouch and I had it on my belt because Hey i. knew I knew someday I was going to regret it if I didn't have pictures of some this. So. So I took pictures them. They let me take pictures which was unusual and when I took a picture gene. Gene and he goes. I better never see this picture in a magazine. You don't have to G. Got Offered Five thousand dollars for those at one time. I Bet I could. I would assume that I just I posted them out. Maybe a year or two years ago was the first time I ever put him on facebook. But, I figured at this point. It doesn't really matter. Yeah, but back. That day went without makeup and dresses kidney. Could have got a lot of for that. Sure so how many? How many of the banned from those backstage back seen kind of stuff? How much do you have now? I don't have a lot. I have a few things now. Got A lot, I I'd have to really look. Got Some stuff. Because man I know the fans nowadays just love I. Know I personally love to see the candidates stuff from back when you know you weren't like, said people in take pictures of kiss without their makeup. So you know that's a pretty rare thing to have candid with a K. photos a kiss. From back in that area. That's awesome I'd love to see that stuff. I got one of eight that you'll like I'll send it to you when I'm done of. The Rubber Rafts story where? He called me up one day and you know Bobby, McAdams. Heard that name sure best. Well he told me up and this was after the storage when he made, and they got all that money. As first thing H. did was he went and Ballo Kaiser? Shit clothes boots any bought. A Cadillac read El Dorado Cadillac with a white leather, top and white leather interior. And so he called me up day. He goes. Hey, come on up and we're GONNA. We're GONNA. Do something and I said well. What are you? GonNa do because I just come on up and you'll see so I came up there and I pull up the driveway. And next to his Cadillac. In the driveway, he's got a a navy seal type gray. Rubber rat. And Him and bobby are down on the ground, trying to blow this rubber raft. Analyze what time of. Doing and they're like. Hey, come on, man. We're going to blow this wrapped up and we're GONNA. Take it out I said okay, so I helped him when we got the raft all blown up, and he had like a fifteen horsepower motor. And we put it on. Top of his Eldorado tied it down. And I thought we. A Little Lake somewhere right. Know where we went. We went to the Hudson River. Raft, right. You gotta be kidding. Me We're not. GonNa. Go out in that river. Have you ever seen the Hudson River Black? Huge wide. It's big, right. Kimmy, we can't go out there and this ramping. Because yeah, come on, it'll be fun. So the three of US get in. It was really a two-man rap, but Australia's got this little raft with a fifteen horsepower motor, and we're. We're just going out into the middle of the Hudson. River at sure shit here comes a big fucking oceanliner right down the hut towards us I'm like. Hey, there's a fucking oceanliner coming at US man. We gotTA GET OUTTA here so he turns it around now. Fifteen horsepower motor is not very fast, right. especially come. barreling down the river and we're like. I mean we had to be a spot on the on the water to that vote, you know. Anyway. So we made it back safe. Obviously Oh shit. Little things like that. No, but he did. It was so much fun. That's awesome man. What's the nicest thing you've ever seen as freely do? Oh Wow. That's an interesting Because you always hear the stories of his wide man side, you know I always like to hear the late. You know that the guy did nice things one while to. I I know. He took care of his friends. I didn't know that I know I don't know if he. I know he took care of Bobby. I think the Bobby get a house or apartment or something and I know he He bought stuff for his friends used to. Also you know put on parties and pay for everything for the parties, and you know that kind of thing. He did a lot of Nice stuff, but always usually I France. About family and stuff. That's pretty much it. He gave me one of those watches that he had that was pretty nice. pulsars pulsar made at tiffany's and. They're kind of big looking. They're really cool. And he said he got. He gave me one that said you know to bury a confirmation alien, which was great. It was really cool. So he didn't you know goodbye and I saw him later on after the you know some of the Solo Tours. I I hooked up with him a couple of times. I don't have to really think about that. But, he was a nice guy part. How did how did things in with you and kiss? What do you remember what your Lascaux was? What led to you being done with the ban? Well let me. What happened was on that last tour. I met the singer in Salt Lake City and we had a day off and we talked about I. had thought before that tour that I said. If I'M GONNA, try to make it in my own band I'm going to have to do it soon if I don't end up being eroded the rest of my life so. I knew that I had to. If I was going to I had to do something within the next few years, and I ended up meeting the finger out Salt Lake and we talked about when the band together, and and so at the end of the tour, which was that time where they dressed up dresses, that was the last show we went back and Eddie Kramer. The producer did five shows with us with a live recording truck. A live recording CEO that he had that and. He did DALLAS HE DID LA. Did the Buddha Khan and Japan and. One or two other places can't remember where. And we went back to New York and. Everybody else went home I stayed and did went into the studio with those guys. to finish kiss too so i. just you know helped. Set up the amps and whatever I took care of everybody. At that point whatever they needed. I'd run out and get food for everybody. But that was great and I'm glad. I did that because I got to hear stories from Eddie. Kramer, talking about led Zeppelin and Hendrix and talk about Hendrix and inbuilt studio, and all kinds of crates stories was. So if you were there those live to the studio album, the studio tracks I mean from your perspective. Why was ace not plane on that stuff? Did he just go home to? Ace did not like the studio. He did not really care about the studio. He definitely pair about the studio. Yeah, I noticed that on destroyer. He is you know it was like pulling teeth to get him to come in and do his tracks. Yeah. Yeah he was. Did so like so. The entity the alive to tour was kind of the last thing you did with them. Amazon true. Yeah? Yeah and told him I told her. I called the every one of them up, and told him I was leaving when I did after the after the thing. I had a month off and. I went out to Utah and we put the band together and I call them up each one of them individually, and told them why I was leaving, and so that they wouldn't hear some story at the office or whatever you know. So called each one of them up until they were all fine with it. They were like yet great, you know. I, think that's why Paul also like he could call me. And ask. About our drummer and guitar player so house band going. Can I have your drummer? How will your tar player? But that's only. Expect. Great that he did that. You know he must have respected me enough to do that. You know so otherwise he. would. You just send somebody out? You know? He could have just sent somebody out to talk to bill and that would have been at yeah. Yeah Do you Do you stay in touch with any of the old cast crew guys? Yeah Hawkeye, I saw him One was A. January. December you know with We're weird Al. Anchorage and commit. He's been working for years now. He doesn't Minnesota. Hawkeye Built. helped prince build a studio. Oh Wow. As far yeah. He lives in Minneapolis and after the whole kissing, he went to work for press, Prince and He ended up saying with them and helping them build that studio out there. That's while so world, MOM, yeah! And Rick Henderson. That's cool so I. Have you had any contact with the guys from kissed and she stopped working with them. Ace and I saw Jean and Paul about two years ago. They actually opened a restaurant where I live in a veto Florida. Which is north east of you know and it's called I can do what the Hell is that little? Rock and grew. and. They opened up a couple of years ago and I got there. I got to talk to Jean for a couple of minutes, and but they were leaving, and he looked beat I. Mean he looked worn out. They'd been there all day doing television stuff, and I could get try to get there soon. As I could, and Paul had just pulled away I didn't get to talk to him, but I talked to gene for a few minutes. That's the last time I saw him. and seen as several years back when he did a solo tour through here. I've seen him a couple of times. We came through Did you guys get to catch up? Yeah, it was good, but you know there's a lot of lot of miles down the road between when I was with them. But we had some good moments ace, and I had some good laughs I told the story with to the about the wireless playing guitar up on the toilet. And I told. The band his band. You Know God. They were rolling on the floor. He was. He was he was just looking at him like he didn't remember it. Yeah, it was looking at me like he was. He was one of the guys here in the story for the first. Probably was. Well. That does sound like something I would do. Yeah! That's Kinda the lookie at home. That's all. I got to ask overall like when you look back on your time with them, I mean. I know in the middle of it. It's like a whirlwind, but when you look back and you realize that this band is like sustained itself almost fifty years now I mean it's gotTa. Be Pretty awesome to look back on that and realized that you were there for like the absolute peak of of their powers. Yeah. It is it definitely is yeah? I, I had no idea that we're gonna go this long and this mini albums and you know. It's amazing. They had an amazing career. Well you. Definitely apart, a kiss story, no doubt about it.

Gabe Kapler Meets Willie Mays

"Expectations are sky high for the as this year especially with the Houston cheating scandal potentially opening path for the as to win the division I am Susan's Lesser Lesser. You can follow along with all the as developments throughout the season on as plus hello and welcome to the giant splash. I'm John Shea the chronicles national baseball writer. And we welcome. The giants new manager gave Kappler to the podcast. I caught up with Gabe in his office at Oracle Park right after he met Willie mays we discussed that meeting with the great maze along with all kinds of roster information including his thoughts on some of the players recently signed so gave you had a few precious moments with Willie. mays could you talk about that. And what that that was like in House that materialized sure You know having the opportunity to spend some time with Mr Mays. I'm gonNA address them like that because I feel like he's. He's one of the few baseball players alive that Really Command that level of respect and I it was A little bit. Surreal the old to walk into the office. Sit Down and spend time with him asking questions have meat have him ask me questions But definitely one of the more impactful experiences I've had since I've been in San Francisco. So what did you know about Willie growing up. I think what what stands out to me. Most was my childhood collecting collecting baseball cards. And you know obviously the baseball card collecting period of time for me was like nine thousand nine hundred five when I was ten years old through nine hundred ninety five that was my my formative years around learning about baseball history but I knew about the old time baseball cards and so the the two that stood out out to me were I think it was nineteen fifty two Mickey Mantle Rookie which was about the same time that they're Willie mays was was coming into league and I remembered visually having that the impact of of those old early fifties baseball cards And certainly like I always thought of Willie mays one of the top three players. That ever lived So my visual of course of the catch have that guy can play that in my mind right now and then I I see his his face on on that old baseball card. And Yeah I mean you know legend. That's what comes to mind right. I think about Willie mays what impressed you during in your. I think it was forty minutes. Far came in Scott came in. But you were there the entire time. Yeah I guess I think what what impressed me is that you know Willie is. He's he's challenging He likes to have real discussion and I guess one thing that comes to mind is I want want to get to know him better over a longer period of time. I think that our relationship will develop the more I go in and sit down and have conversations with them I think that it's really. It would be really awesome to to get to know him and get to know me. How could Willie really may be utilized in spring training for starters? I mean you go round Major League Baseball Club houses. You don't usually see hall of famers in their everyday and Willie mays pretty much. Every day during the regular season will show up at the home game and certainly every home game during the cactus league season. Scottsdale at the stadium he will be there in the clubhouse pre-game so how could you use it utilize the resource that not many others would have I. I actually see this two ways first. Having our players understand that they can go and sit down and talk to Willie at at any point And and ask him questions which is something that was clearly important to him is having people ask him questions and And then on on the flip side. I think it's really valuable for Willie to have so it's obviously useful for our players to to to sponge up Willie's knowledge and on on the flip side. I think Willie would get some inspiration out of having players Mine knowledge that he has as a hitter as an outfielder are and history of the San Francisco. Giants will grow up. Who is your guy who is your all time favorite baseball player as a kid or even looking back to the history of the game? Who might you Respected the most. You said eighty five to ninety five. Where are the years you really studied and looked at collected baseball cards? Yeah and I would say as a very young boy It was kind of more the tail. End of Pete rose's freer so pete rose comes to mind and Dan you know my favorite all time baseball player as a kid was was fred mcgriff. Wow so He was right in the heart of his career. In those formative years for me and a few other Toronto Blue Jays come to mind like George Bell and Jesse Barfield. We're both I I like the Toronto Blue Jays as a as a boy and that was because I was on a tee ball team where I have the powder Blue Jersey and that bird on the chest and so I like the blue is my dad would take me to Anaheim stadium to watch watch the Blue Jays come in and so. I didn't spend as much time at dodger stadium even though it was closer to my house and then Charles Barkley I. I know this is not a basketball. The ball question but Barkley was another guy that I love to watch play. I love the fact that you six four and a half and he out rebounded the monsters. He had so much heart and and determination on the floor that I thought he was a pretty special and influential athlete in my mind. You mentioned Barclay. Are you mentioned mcgriff to your favorite said. They were a lot of like in that they both had a lot of heart mcgriff every single year thirty homers one hundred. RBI but try to transition into modern times twenty twenty giants roster shaping up. Far Huns eighties has made some moves. He he hasn't given anyone multi year contracts. He hasn't brought in any marquee free agents. He's developed some death at different levels. How you seen plan plan out in general in particular the pitching because obviously you start every roster pitching right? Well I think the the guys that have been brought in drew smiley. Kevin Guardsmen still have tremendous upside and how an opportunity to be exposed to drew smiley last year. He wasn't he didn't have full distance from his Tommy John Surgery but he had a lot of the arm strength had started to come back and and he was bouncing back and was durable force for us in Philadelphia last year. And he's he's learning how to utilize his pitch mix and and be more and more effective active every time he goes out the last start of the season against the nationals. I think he struck out. You can double check this struck out ten Walk none and was incredibly effective. And I think that's the outside the ceiling for Drew Smiley. So that's that's pretty exciting. And then you mentioned when we we when you walked in the room Nick Vinson an MRI but the guy that we had in Philadelphia also last year Incredibly competitive incredibly durable High Caliber Team Mate Exciting to have around right now. Nick Vincent in Philadelphia was much better than the Nick Vincent in San Francisco last year under. What you guys did to them? But in September he was lights out with a sub to era in San Francisco. I think he had one start as an opener. Bruce Bocce didn't do a lot of that He was into introduced to it. And I imagine we'll see more of that but is he somebody who could fill that role. Or what kind of role would you see out an Vinson. We valuable flexible relievers. And I think nick is the kind of guy that could pitch in the eighth inning. Give pitch in the sixth. He was the kind of guy who in Philadelphia. If we have a pitcher make an early exit fell very comfortable bringing him into the game going through left handed and right handed batters And I think anything. We asked Nick to view he'd be He'd be game for is is our Cueto and smarter the only starters starters with confirmed rotation jobs at this point I think that Cueto and shark at the top of the rotation Guzman and Smiley are both considered to be starting pitchers for US heading spring training. And then I think there's a lot of competition for The final spots spots so webby beatty Anderson Suarez. All of those guys have have opportunity in front of them. So would they be battling for the final spot or are you saying the third and fourth spot might be up for grabs. Are they set with the players. There's that you mentioned Smiley and Guzman both come into campus as starters for Okay and as you mentioned Cueto and and shark both both with to be at the top of the rotation. We'll have more of my conversation with gave Kappler right after this. If you've been listening into San Francisco City insider you heard from chaser bodine months before his surprise election as the city's. Da You heard from the most love librarian in the country and you heard from the man who wants to remake Muny. I'm chronicle columnist. Heather Knight get to know the people who make San Francisco tick and see if you approve of their burrito choices on San Francisco go city insider. You need a closer or are you. Open to rotating that position or even used in your best best reliever in a higher leverage seventh or eighth inning situation where we'd see a stereotypical closer into twenty twenty twenty things a little too early to tell John I mean I think we want to see see what our our roster looks like heading into spring training. I think we've got a lot of possibilities right now. For the sixth through the ninth and we'll look to be creative to to find the best fits for each situation now do von seems to be a a real wildcard linear. He was really impressive. toward the end of last season at Ed both short and second but he so athletic he could do a lot of things that I was the outfield particular Centerfield do see him roaming around the diamond or is he the in the mix at second base with the Solano and the newcomer Gilmer Sanchez. We see it as we see opportunities for playing time as as merit based so We see Yohmor and we see DEVAN. We see Solano. No no as competing for playing time. We see some openings in the outfield and so for that reason we're excited about let's see what do bond can do in the outfield as well and these are conversations that we'll continue to have with with all players. Are you looking For the second baseman to be more defensive minded or more hitting minded because Sanchez comes as a raining. Gold Glover From the white sox where he was wonderful on defense but maybe provide the pop that you might be looking for with this lineup. We're excited about Sanchez's Sanchez's Defense contributions and he's also put in quite a bit of time with with Justin belief. One of our major league coaches Spent a good deal of time with him. This past offseason working through swing adjustments Those swing adjustments Yohmor has been pretty committed to and we're excited to see what those changes producing spring training and in the regular season. Speaking of the new coaches have they at all met with or at least spoken with all the veterans. Including you know buster Posey in Crawford and belt and Longoria. Here's been a lot of work done so far John so Longoria and Crawford both have spent time with our hitting roof in the cage in Scottsdale Buster and some Marjo have both been here in San Francisco had an opportunity to talk to both of those guys. They're both working really hard into to put their bodies and their minds in the right position to have success in in twenty twenty But all of our coaches are making consistent contact with with our players That's that's true for me as well. Some really good conversations with with our players already. Pablo Sandoval is a giant again. Yes or at least he will be resuming. His Rehab with the giants opening day. Seems Unlikely I don't know maybe I'm wrong. But he's A. He's a bit ahead of schedule. But I think opening day is is certainly certainly ambitious given the circumstances right you met with him in Miami off season did that Lead to the signing here or was that the introductory Conversation you had and would you expect from him. It wasn't for sure that he was gonna be back but he does as Bruce Bochy said many times provide a lot of personality in leadership and Enjoy those sure so Collaboration always leads to the signing of players As far as Pablo's lows impact on on the clubhouse I don't think it can be discounted. It's a it's a big thing. He's he keeps the mood life. He knows how to to inspire his teammates and have been example of that. When I went out to Miami and I sat down with Suarez Anderson and Pablo Pablo double had a a really mature perspective on how to handle that conversation he knew when the right time was for to take control of the conversation but he also also knew when to tee up Anderson and Suarez so that I was able to get to know the three of them together at the same time? He's just he's a mature but also very lighthearted joy filled athlete. And then I'll say this as when we came in with the phillies Pablo. Oh was dangerous coming off the bench swing and a good bat and he. We always had to account for the possibility that he was gonNA come up in a big situation and and we knew that he was going to be a grind of a plate appearance. And so yeah I mean He. He had a good year last year with the BAT. And I'm excited for for him. When he's fully healthy he would that be made with Epi June July? Would that be August. Do we know. I don't think we have an exact timeline yet I've I've seen videos of Pablo. He's he shares awesome and he's excited about his progress so he's throwing fairly aggressively at this point And obviously he shared some videos. Swing swing looks good. Looks in good shape. You mentioned Anderson is one of the three met in Miami. Which Anderson was the Sean John Anderson? Okay in Tyler will be ready for the season. I don't know exactly where he is in his time. Line right now but I can get that information for you okay. Anybody else Smiley anybody else. Who is questionable? annable for opening day smiley healthy okay. Yeah we're we're good to go there. Okay Okay and Darren rough another newcomer. Who spent the last last three years in Korea? Yeah hit some home runs. Eighty plus I don't know if that's the level of AAA or what but eighty five home runs. Eighty five home runs. Let's first baseman slash corner. After would you see of him. You nailed it on heat. So in in Korea the numbers he put up. Were really impressive. I I think three years in a row were was nine hundred opie s and I think at least one of those years was over thousands so he was able to to do two things. He's very well that we value number one hit for power number to get on base so and Darren we had some exposure to Darren when I was in player player development with the dodgers many years ago And Look I mean I'm not sure how much of the performance from Korea the last couple of years translates it's two major league baseball but they're certainly reason for optimism. Where's this going to get? Its power This is a tougher ballpark park to hit them. Most if not all and the numbers on the offensive side last few years haven't been impressive on the power side with. Where are you going to get your our our job as a major league? Coaching staff is to take the pieces that we have in this room. The athletes that we that we have in this room in on our roster right now and try try to turn the dial up just a little bit We are a player. Development Focused Major League coaching staff. So one way for us to to get a two to power in our lineup is to improve swings improve swing decisions And continue can you to to make adjustments to get the most out of our our very talented athletes. I think there's another level in another gear in some some of our veteran players. And I think that we're GONNA do everything necessary to develop the the young players that are still coming into their own and I think in Strips Ubon Jalen Davis dickerson. Like these are slater. All of these guys have have some pretty high ceilings. Yes you have a relationship with Kevin Pillar. Yeah we We both come from the same part of California. Yeah Yeah we've stayed in touch over the years. Now he's a free agent yes Farhan told me that before spring training. He's expecting one or two more outfielders in the mix to bring in church and I'm wondering if You might shed any light on whether he would be somebody you'd like to pursue or have I know this. Isn't you know party. Part of your Gig you manage. The team brings the players in but with no and your relationship with other players who have come in. Let me drop that name. Yes so I I'd say I respect the work and the job that far on and Scott hairs are are. GM have to do which which is to decide on on what the roster is going to look like and it's my job to be a thought partner with them on those decisions but then also to I fully support and and get the most out of the players that come into the clubhouse in our on our major league roster rather than speaking to individuals I can speak to characteristics heuristic value I value and respect hard play gritty play Fiery play guys that are tough and that are gonNA scratch and claw in grind for every possible advantage so rather than speak to anyone individuals individual. I can tell you that the character characteristics value. Are Those understood. Some of the characteristics centered on. Roy Does maybe the last thing would be. What could you tell giant Ryan fans about the twenty twenty giants that would make them encouraged after three straight losing seasons here? Yeah I think the thing that comes to mind immediately is when teams get on their charters to fly back to their home cities after playing three game series in San Francisco Cisco we expect for them to be exhausted because of our grind our hustle our determination and our fight. So I think that's brand of baseball. That giants fans can get on board with and one that our clubhouse our players our staff will be proud to play and I think that's an that's an entertaining brand of major league baseball.
