"Terms that sportsbook DraftKings dot com slash basketball terms. The championship final goes down, Saturday, 8 p.m. Eastern Time at Audi in D.C.. You will be there and it's a fascinating matchup. OG powerhouse thorns versus season two expansion team disruptors Kansas City. But what are you most looking forward to in that matchup? I'm really looking forward to enjoying the game as a pure fan. I know that. It's bittersweet, obviously, which I were playing, which my season went better, but at the same time, I think about the kid that went to spirit games all the time at the plex and would have loved to see a final in the league men. And I think I'm just glad it's in D.C.. Like you said, they organized it around my schedule. And I'm just excited to go and to watch a really, really, really good game. You played boo for these teams. What are you going to be looking for? I don't know if I'm going to even be looking. I think I'm just going to be watching and looking for entertainment factor. I think that's where my mind is, where I just want to turn, I think normally when I'm watching teams, I'm watching it from the perspective of we're about to play this team or my team is playing this team and I'm injured. So I'm like watching it for the sake of supporting my team. Whereas this game, I'm going just for a good time. I think the first 15 minutes will be very telling just with the nerves and energy you've seen that in playoffs or in games just with teams with strong starts and how much that fuels them. And I think that's definitely a strength of Kansas cities as well. Catch the first 15 and. Oh, the second 75 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. And this game, it's going to be on big network CBS. How does that feel as a player to think about prime time Saturday night? The NASL championships first ever prime time slot. Wow, it feels great. I hope it goes really well so that we can continue to do it. That's just, again, there's so many times where that hasn't been the case, so I hope the player is playing really revel in the lights extra that night. CBS prime time NWSL gonna be even bigger than NCIS. Oh, remember, you can also stream it on paramount plus and try it free on us. A paramount plus dot com slash MIB TWG one last question for you and the Sullivan before we close out. We are about to head off into the off season. No NWSL for four long months, almost an unbearable thought, but what football will you be watching? Well, I'm definitely excited to watch the World Cup even though I feel like I'll have to consume it knowing that there's a lot of concern around it. So I definitely need to be mindful as I'm watching it. So definitely excited about that. And then back to Premier League when watching that a lot once that comes back. Who is the Andy Sullivan team? I don't have a team. Have we talked about this? And I kind of wish that I did. Because I feel like I would make it so much, I don't know, I feel like I'd learn more, but now I feel like I can't pick a team because I'm just a bandwagon for whoever I pick. Come on to the world's tiniest bandwagon and he said, welcome to Everton, football club. Oh God, I'm going to dispatch you a Jersey. I'm looking around my office to see exactly what I can send you to tempt you over to the dark side, but that is it. For this week, a week of NWSL football, the really will be as last weekend, a light in the darkness. But for the last time this season, I'm going to ask you Andy to close us out. Tell us one thing that's brought you a modicum of joy over the last week. This weekend, my teammate Ashley hatch had a couple of us over who are around for the off season and her and her husband made us amazing chili, which is great for the fall time and we carved pumpkins and we did this while watching the semifinals and it was so much fun. It sounds almost just perfectly beautifully joyously. American. But how many of you hang out in D.C.? How many of you are in D.C. over the off season? There's a whole there's a whole team now scattered to the full wind. Most of the time people scatter, I feel like, but this is a time where more people have stuck around than usual. I think that's just due to the nature of the season kind of being shifted up. So I think a lot of people are like hanging around until Thanksgiving and then kind of splitting off. So yeah, there's probably a group of like ten of us or so who are still around, which is a pretty good chunk. Enjoy that pretty good chunk. This is our last episode of the season with the only solo, which makes me very sad. I do want to say what a joy and a privilege it's been to podcast. If you have really enjoy every single second, your insight into the game, your approach to life, honestly, I don't I think you are quite an assuming and you do not know how many listeners are lifted by how you approach both your own game, your own strengths, your own desire for self improvement and your own ability to do it all honestly. You are an American original, single greatest to me, one of my favorite people in football, enjoy your off season and we will hopefully see you in D.C.. When we roll into town during the men's World Cup, but we'll definitely see you at the other side as the next season begins. Big, big thanks to roger gonna make me tear up. Thank you. It's been a good time and always you're improving my mood and making things light and I appreciate it. Back, back at you and then Andy Sullivan to a great final carriage. If you like our show,

"Back this weekend stunt with your own Washington spirit who go to North Carolina to take on the courage this Friday 7 30 p.m. eastern streaming on paramount plus and the I don't like to bring this up, but the spirit and the courage currently set 11th and 12th in the table respectively. No one would have believed that that would be the case. I don't think before the league kicked off your two challenge cup finalists, I lost two league champions. What do you say to yourself mentally and your teammates going into this matchup? And I was actually saying today with Torah eastern Aubrey Bledsoe was like, actually, I was talking to Alana cook about this when we were on the road. It's like this point last year, The Rain were in last. Or second to last or something like that. And for us this point last year, we had just forfeited two games, lost 6 points. And we're also, you know, I think 9th, 8th, bottom of the table. And so I think what I'm saying to myself and my teammates, this point is like anything can happen. But I think that for me, the important thing is also to not get two of my head of myself and starting to calculate points for me. I'm just like, oh, we need a momentum shift, like we need a win. So I think everything I'm thinking about is just watching North Carolina's previous games and preparing our game plan and to execute that to the best of our ability, because that's what's going to get us the result. See, like, getting your teammate into a little bit, let's forfeit a couple of games and kick start this season again. That's really what we're made of. Let's throw some drama in there and then we'll really it's the spirit way and on the Brian note of celebration, your teammate Ashley hatch won the espy last week for the best NWSL player of the year and hatch has been in the league since 2017. She was a Golden Boot winner last campaign, still tends to fly under the radar when the conversation about best forwards in the league is banded around, which I don't understand why she's not in everybody's top list, but can you describe what you're in training week in week out what makes us so bloody good? Hachi is a gem. She is a true professional and I think her work rate as a 9 is amazing. There's not a lot of 9s who worry about their defensive roles too, too much, or they worry about them to an extent. But hatchie really owns those and she's just a pest. If you ask a lot of center backs in the league who they hate playing against, they would say hachi. So I don't know why either she kind of flies into the radar in terms of respect because I think people hate playing her. And I think that's a huge compliment for your center forward. What would I say about it and make sure just that plant? Oh, she's just a pest. And in the best way, the best compliment. She never gives up on small moments where she could let this pass and rest and be ready to go for the next one. It's like she's always in it.

"Which was a great experience to be a part of, but my role minutes wise this tournament was much more. I could get more minutes and then lower my stock. That's still possible. But for me, in this and this tournament, it was a huge step in my own individual journey that I felt like I was getting minutes and minutes in a final or in a knockout stage against top teams. And I was like, oh, I'm trusted on this team. By the staff. And by the team. And that's, you know, I may have been trusted in the past, but I didn't have that feeling or that opportunity. So for me, I'm putting that in the back of my mind. It's like, oh, that's an experience that. Will help me prepare in the future. Do you guys share your fears with each other? Or is it all about keeping a strong public face in front of the group? The incredible thing about this team is that everyone has had those feelings and those experiences. There is not a single player on the team who has shown up and played great every day and played great every minute and gotten to do whatever role they wanted for as much as they wanted. That has never existed on the history of this team. So even players who you look at and you think like, oh, they're so full of confidence or they are so secure and they feel you know that that's not true. And I think when you share a feeling, people are like, I know exactly what that feels like. And I think that's also like I've said this to people before. It's so difficult to describe the environment. And so if you try to explain that feeling to someone outside of the environment, they're like, why don't you just do this? And you're like, it doesn't work that way. So the team is actually really good, especially, you know, when you grab someone and share how you're feeling, they're like, oh, I'm feeling the same way, or I felt this way before, and I did this or there's definitely a lot of that across the team. And I think the veterans particularly on this team are also a little more proactive about that. They ask people, you know, how they're doing, how they're feeling, what do they think? And try to like, they're trying to impart a lot of wisdom on us, which I'm so grateful for, because obviously they've been through way more than me and carry the legacy that they themselves would a part of, but also that others have passed down to them. So they've been they've been brilliant, honestly. It's impossible to describe this culture to someone who is not of this culture, essentially and the you've just described Fight Club. But I'm curious. So I can't talk about it. You just almost need a big mistake, but somehow somehow your chili didn't. But I am curious, can we hear you after a big win in that culture in that place that unique place that you need pressure that unique sense of shared glory? Is there a sense of letdown that dissipation of all that protracted adrenaline that come down from that emotional high? When you come back from a great vacation and you see your luggage back in your home hallway, do you feel a tiny bit bloop? I think because the tournament was the result that we wanted that it's easier to not feel as blue. I do think that it's always tricky like transitioning back into league play for me. It is and it isn't. I think it's kind of a refresh like, okay, I have to get back into this routine so that I can prepare in a different way. Just preparing at home versus from a hotel and things like that. I think because the energy during the tournament was so good, even though it was long and tough, I came home and I don't feel as blue as I have in the past from other things because I can totally see what you're saying, that happened for me after the NWSL final. We won with the spirit and then I had to fly to Australia with the national team and as soon as the plane touched down in Australia, I felt like the championship didn't happen and I was kind of like upset and emotional about it 'cause I didn't get to really like soak it up and celebrate for as long as it was warranted too. And be with my teammates like I didn't get to do that and I think then going into camp was really hard because also you people are like congrats, but they're also bitter. As I would be too. So yeah, I know the post post tournament blues you're referring to and I've experienced them before but I did not so much this trip. So I don't know what that is. I'll have to self examine a little more, figure out why. We'll see how you feel after 35 minutes talking to me Andy Sullivan. The biggest come down of all time, but last national team question because I do want to pivot to the Euros and to the latest in NSL this weekend where things are in both the tournament and in the league, heating up literally and figuratively, knowing that you now have the World Cup and the 2024 Olympics locked in. Does that make them feel more real? Do you allow yourself to start thinking about the particularly the World Cup, which is now less than a year away in more concrete terms. Because there's so much football for you to play and because you're always focused on the next game, does it stay in the realm of a mere daydream for a while longer when you focus on the immediate challenges to come. Yeah, I think it does stay in the daydream zone for several reasons. I do think it is helpful for the team, the national team to know that we've qualified. And I felt that for the team. Because also I was thinking, this sounds terrible, but I'll confess this. I'll be honest. Before the tournament, like I said, it's the first tournament where I think I'm going to get major minutes and I'm thinking like,

"I think that's a big part of being in these tournaments is how to manage it. And I think that's also a strength we have on our team is we have veteran experience and we have depth and we have options and we have tactical adjustments and we're using all those and testing those and making sure we are prepared for those situations and obviously that's why I think what black hole said is relevant because there are so many other tests to come our way that we need to train so that when the World Cup comes around a year from now we've tested everything or with ourselves or against an opponent. Let's talk about the final. The U.S. won one zero a 77th minute Alex Morgan penalty scored against Canadian goalkeeper killing Sheridan who had something incredible saves in that game to keep the school line really as tight as it was and Sheridan happens to be a teammate with Alex at the San Diego wave. Remember listeners back in June. She became just a third NWSL keeper in history to log an assist in a game that assist going to none other than Alex Morgan herself, and it certainly didn't seem like this from Alex's floorless execution. But it must have added an extra level of difficulty for a penalty taker to face off against someone from training who knows you so bloody well. Alex has been so hot with penalties, gone both ways. So the only thing would be her maybe discussing with Sheridan what her strategy is, but we're also on the national team aware of like, okay, we have international teammates on our team. So we know not to share too much. But obviously there's a lot you can observe from people's penalties, but I had full confidence as soon as we got the pellets say, I'm like, oh, it's going in. The funny part about it was, I did not hear the whistle blown for Alex to take the penalty, and I'm like standing probably 5, 6 yards behind Alex, and she starts approaching the ball, and I almost screamed like stop, what are you doing? 'cause I just didn't hear the ref blow the whistle. I thought she was just so in the zone, like, going for it. And she started going and I was kind of like looking around like, was there a whistle, or she just gonna bang this penalty and then have to do it again? I was just baffled. But the whistle was blown and the gold did count. God, I love that notion that you almost iced your own kicker. Yeah, can you imagine? I would be cut from the national team immediate. Did you look around and were you like, why is no one else saying anything in this moment? Something awful is going to happen and all the eye can save the day. Thank God I did not. Oh my gosh, yeah, my future would have been over. And they should thank you and the Sullivan. And those celebrations that followed in the aftermath of victory, we saw a little bit on Instagram, Alex Morgan, gulping margaritas out of the trophy. Now, the Concacaf W is not the World Cup. There's no complimentary beer goggles handed out in the locker room. And a lot of you were getting on planes who the very next morning, how hard does everyone go in the week of victory? How hard does everyone go in the locker room? Well, they had it taped up for us. So that's one indication. Very hard on the spraying of the champagne. But and also, like I said, it's going into a break. So I think everyone goes at their own pace and their own level and we all respect that, but it was a great energy. I think again, is more about the camaraderie of being together and in the giant margarita cup trophy making sure everyone feels welcome and praised for their work, including people who are behind the scenes a lot, the staff, getting their moment of glory. What anti Sullivan is saying, they listen to this drink responsibly and serve a weird question, but can you articulate what winning a big tournament feels like? There's a joy to watch in the team you love winners of fan. But ultimately, that must pale in intensity to the feeling that you have having actually won that trophy yourself. And there's a reason you guys keep coming back year after year to final after final trophy after trophy, can you walk us through that emotional journey at the final whistle? For this U.S. team in that tournament, as much about relief as it is joy. I think so, because I think that we know that yes, this trophy is great. And especially because this one had implications for the team with the Olympics, but I think we know the ultimate trophy is not in our hands. And so it's this mix of joy and relief and accomplishing the mission, but at the same time, we have more missions coming that this is only this not that it pales in comparison, but it's just a step to lead us to that. So I think it's this mix. And it was funny because when we made it to the semifinal, it's like you know that you're going to be there for a certain number of days. And black code did a good job of saying, you know, we know we're going to be here till this day. And so we might as well win the whole thing. And obviously we wanted to win the whole thing anyway. But just being able to tune in that focus to the goal at hand over and over and over again. So then once it's finally checked off, it's like I mean, this tournament is a step in a journey and here it's a time of uncertainty in that journey as well. A transition of the squad between cycles. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding so many bloody positions and I am interested even in collective triumph. Does that individual uncertainty surrounding some players not knowing whether they have strengthened their case to be part of the squad or not strengthened it? Is that also like a lingering note? The national team, there's always that uncertainty, though. But I think it's just speak to myself personally because I can't really speak to others experiences or the tournament, but for me, I had been a part of Olympic qualifying in 2020. Which was a great experience to be a part of, but my role minutes wise this tournament was much more. I could get more minutes and then lower

"I know this podcast is the women's game, but they do need to ask you both about the other tournament in the eyes of this podcast, the lesser men's World Cup, the 2026 host cities for the United States Canada, Mexico will cut with just an ounce and Andy. I know how hard you are rooting for D.C. to be one of the cities to bring American football to the world, having grown up in the DMV, becoming captain of your hometown team, the spirit you know better than anybody. What a vibrant soccer culture resides in that city. What was your reaction to hearing the D.C. was passed over completely snubbed for the men's World Cup as a venue in 2026, along with Baltimore. I was pretty crushed. I enjoyed being a part of that advisory board and hearing updates along the way. And I think joining bids with Baltimore. I was hoping would help our case, but I also see why it didn't happen. I think in terms of fan experience, it would have been, you couldn't have topped it. It would have been next level just with the international presence that's in D.C. in terms of people who live there, but also the embassies and the food and the transportation and the museums and the fan fest. It would have been unbelievable. And I think it's still will be from that experience. I'm hoping, but having a game there is what's the most important thing. And I think our lack of access to a big enough stadium with RFK no longer existing and Audi is a great venue, but it's not big enough for a World Cup. And I think I was not completely surprised. I think the field venue really hurt our bid and I think also trading venues. So I'm hoping that D.C. looks at that as a way that we could grow as a city in an area as a DMV for the future because these events will keep coming and if we don't make changes, we will get passed up. Hello, I think once had a tweeted this, one of the joys watching that slightly surreal FIFA city reveals show was hearing Seattle's name called out and you play in the region to me. I can't wait for the world to see what a delirious footballing culture there is there. You know, what do you imagine it's going to be light in that city can World Cup? Yeah, it's a Seattle transplant. I've been extremely kind of impressed by the sports culture there. I think all of the teams that play there are really well supported and it is kind of like a family between all the different sports, we honestly were a little nervous with Vancouver also being in the running, would they pick cities that close to each other and ultimately they did. So I think it's super exciting. I think we're also selfishly a little bit excited that if they do convert lumen field to grass, what kind of benefit from that conversion at The Rain. So that's a big plus for us, but I think we're just incredibly excited for kind of all that soccer passion to come together and be shown to the world and for the international excitement to be in our city. God speed Seattle and Titus sign off the week, I will leave the last word to the two of you and ask you to close out and not always needed note of joy and the Alana, tell us the thing that's brought you delight this week that's cut through the noise and the challenge of the world around us. To give you a sense that policing me, everything's going to be okay. My biggest joy is getting to be back in camp and getting to spend a lot of time with friends that we don't get to see that often. I think in our profession, our Friends end up spread out all over the world in the country, so it is always a joy to be back together. I agree with that. I've been feeling really grateful for Aubrey Kingsbury and Tory Houston in D.C. and how often is it that people get to work with people they admire so much and so much time together with people that they look up to and I think coming into camp by reminded of that all the time as people that I've grown up watching and idolizing is are now my coworkers. Yeah, another special shadow. I've been just blown away by Alex Morgan and how it's just really cool to see her as a mom as well and then reaching the peak of her game again and then her having Charlie and camp is just like this breath of fresh air for all of us because it's such a reminder about life and little joys. Oh go bless. That is a beautiful note to end a podcast on a podcast that began with the notion of black coat small talk. If black has listening, that's the joy of our week is tomorrow opportunities for small talk. The world needs more black case more talk. That is it. We'll be right next week, but for now, godspeed to Andy Sullivan. Thank you, Raj, godspeed to you as well. The law in the Coke. Oh, farewell against Columbia. Thanks,.

Texas DPS Director Shares New Details on Uvalde School Shooting

"Compare that to what we heard yesterday. And you've all Texas. The Texas Department of Public Safety director Steve McGraw gave testimony that was so devastating about this arradondo character. And I got to ask you a very blunt question. But first, let's listen to the stunning revelation. That the door that the gunman supposedly had locked himself behind wasn't even locked. These guys waited well over an hour to enter the classroom even as these terrified children are calling. Help help calling 9-1-1. They waited, they were apparently afraid, listen to one of the toughest things you'll hear today. DPS director, Steve McGraw, and Yuval, Texas. There's many references about cheap air ando about the door being locked and needing keys and more keys and a master key and just constant references to keys, but is there any evidence whatsoever that shows through the video as it was examined later? That the door was ever that there was an attempt to open the door or test whether or not it was locked. We could never see anybody put their hand on the door and of course up until the breach and in that the last at the breach we've gone back and talked to the breachers, we interviewed the breachers and they said, no, they didn't try the door handle beforehand. Didn't even try the door handle beforehand. Are you angry now?

"Us, but before we close out for the week, and I honestly could listen to the booth of you talking about football and life and life and football, a Hyundai Marvel Universe for a long, bloody time, but I want to leave the last word to you both and ask you to close this out on that note of optimism that we need that we crave honestly need it more than ever as I say every week. This is a bloody dark world. There is so much challenge all around us. And I'd love you to tell us something that's brought you joy this week in the football world or outside something that's made you feel good. They can give us a sense of a positivity and that it's all going to be okay, even though it probably isn't. But damn thing you want to go first. Sure, I'll go first. How do you follow up something like that? Even though it probably isn't. I mean crotch. Damn. Something that's been bringing me a lot of joy this week and for the last couple of weeks is my girlfriend got me a record player. And I was like, why do I need a record player, right? It just seems pretty old timey. I'm really into Spotify, whatever. So she started explaining how a record player makes music and why it sounds so much better than Spotify, right? I won't go into that, but she sold me. So I started collecting all of these records of my favorite bands, so like, Fleetwood Mac, I'm Van Morrison. Eagles, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor. I'm kind of old school like that. So I was going through a record store just yesterday, actually. And I had like a 2000s version of Fleetwood Mac rumors for my record player, but that's like the digitized version. That's not an original press, and so I was like, I really want to find an original pressing. And I was at the record store this weekend, and the first record that I found when I was flipping through the records in the new arrivals was Fleetwood Mac rumors, original press from the 70s. And so I've been playing it yesterday and today, pretty much nonstop and it sounds incredible. And that's what's bringing me immense joy this week. I loved thinking about this question. Because I came up with so many different things that I could say. And things that I could be grateful for. Sunny. Yeah. My grandfather is 94, and he still comes to my home games with my aunt. And I just feel like that's something I'm really trying to soak up while it still happening. I grew up in the same neighborhood as my grandparents. He would drive me to things sometimes. I was the youngest of four, so we needed some help. It's harder for me to see them nowadays with COVID. So to see him and my aunt usually in the stands is such a special thing. Normally, like when I'm at a stadium and I'm playing and someone's calling my name or like trying to get my attention, I will not really interact because I just don't want to like stay focused on performing, which is what they want to see anyway. But I make the exception for what I'm walking out. I know where they could possibly be sitting. So I like glance to where they are and I always give them a wave. Recently we had a game and I didn't know where they were. And I looked up into the stands in the first person I saw was my family. So it reminds me of why I love playing and also that there's also so much beyond playing. So grandpa John and all the grandparents. I think I do. I'm someone that believes that the connection between grandparents and grandchildren is one of the most profound in terms of generational memory and for me a lot of my love of football is rooted similarly in my relationship with my grandfather. That is a beautiful, beautiful story. And what a way to wrap up the women's game for this week, we will be back next week. I'm not sure if we can top this though. It has been genuinely a human joy and incredible lift to be with you both and the Sullivan. Godspeed to you on Saturday. Thank you, Raj, this was very fun. Megan klingon book lord. Even before this, I longed to come out to Portland and watch you in action, but now I want to come out and go create digging for vinyl with it. Yes, that sounds like a blast. I found a really good place yesterday, so count us in. I'm there. And we will be back next Thursday until then. Godspeed America,.

You was the one who actually behind ended in a in a very strong hours reading interviews from him like blake sears earlier where he was talking about something like that and i was going to talking about. This is never going to happen and kyw once wanted to do this. Mostly and in my opinion you should know the die malir. Leo's always look for the most lazy way to get through. Prepare it very very carefully for the year for years until i finally had them to the point that they said okay. We're going to contact michael Because i planned that in the future. I only have two ships. The thing about it. I mean i can guarantee you. I've seen him talk. I read him talking about in an interview. We like years four. And i was going going mad. It was like a friend of mine sending me some some of his statements to an sms. The thing about his oh is bullshit. Always talking about that came from him. I'm always talking about it was the i think. The key under station was held in japan. The tokyo hotel which unfortunately they taught as turn it down for a new hotel was a classic old hotel when the beatles At all i thought you talked about band was beautiful anyway. Outwitted in downtown to cafeteria. They're having a talk with the chevy see manager and we just had to talk about what we do with Do we have any idea. So the fans something special blah blah and. I just put it on the table on sunday really wants to present something special with would definitely should think about asking michael kisco if he were joined because that would like to join was wall as clear because we already had in the very moment that was it was a rupture with gumre. That's wealth my idea. Was born and i thought. Okay if everything is working super nicely with Why wouldn't it actually work with michael. Because so far. I already heard the stories from from arcus and waikiki. That was actually the problem child. So siamese that he wanted to believe you you lobbying and the rock and roll guy. Ooh i you have to take aaron blah blah blah but it worked super nicely so the whole tool was great. People left it when when kai joined the the show for the last two halloween show songs. I wanted out oil s perfect. I mean you saw that people are having this. Wow something special thing in their eyes. And that's when i when. I said if you really wanna have another extra special that's logically or michael kisco bring him on stage in a perfect world. Bring the whole band together. And that's that's one. It was born to me. That that's pretty cool of view and andy because once again you have a it would seem you. Most people would be very protective of their spot so to speak. But you are opening up like you said to bring one of the greatest singers back into the band. But did i mention that lacey. Regardless it was a great idea. It's unusable and certainly unusual. The whole thing is unusual especially that it works that well. I mean i think van halen try. Try to with both sneers and did not work out. You told me that they tried it. And then we ads. Anthrax tried that with joy bill. Donald john bush. It didn't work. They did for a short period of time Iron maiden obviously have the three guitar players. Adrian smith came back. But just with bruce so this is one that more you went from a five piece to a seven east almost like an orchestra of heavy metal but it worked so perfectly and created such a huge buzz people went crazy for it and much biggest circus. Now what i think. I think unification's is is something that we need nowadays because honestly you see if alone. It's like you feel like nothing in business definitely and sooner or later you have to realize if you stick together and everybody puts in his strang's or his opinion or his little color or here there then you've got something that in. Our case is called halloween and now with the two guys two new old guys or two old new goes whatever so there you have these spices that were lost on the way because simply the guys went out there anymore and i think it also sends out a nice message. It's like personally in the beginning. The motivation was making. i wanted. Get out on my system even if the thing would have been over off to the first tour two thousand seventeen. I would still be happy to have done that just to get out of my system making peace with white e forgiving and forgetting. It's just eating as wonderful You know that was my first motivation. But now i love it now now i love what came out of it this whole thing and i'm happy to be to be part of this family again to be on his but that wasn't my first motivation it just grew limelight like over the last four years along. It's going now. Think curse the first few weeks where we were like straying. Dogs sniffing on each other's cool. So out pitcher visual image their strike seven trade dogs. Each other were good message. It's a very good message. You know that you can actually the has been so much crap going on years bat words and stuff like that you know an and actually forgiving and forgetting and and i hope people feel that this is not just a just a game we play. I hope that they can feel. That's we couldn't do it if that would be an impossible. Michael i was going to be hours. Forget if people would really love especially when you as we know too. It's it's not just the time in the studio. Are you mentioned kind of the honeymoon period of you guys hanging out and ten arief when you get on that bus and get on those planes and go on the road. You find it very quickly if the chemistry is there as people in his friends and if it's not there it's done and the fact that how that chemistry right that's why we did contracts only for the life tour for the two thousand seventeen tour. We only make contracts for this work so if we hated each other neon everybody could go away again after it worked out so well we started to think. Further in the idea of an album came out. I think this is something. We plainly told people in each and every interview When they asked us. So if there's a new album out of the tour we always said let's first look how the twelve went down because it's one thing to meet three hours on stage for every second day but it's another thing to meet each other ten or twelve hours. Every day explains on the gates waiting together right. It's difficult when you can't stand each other you know. Let's talk about the set list and how you decided. Who would sing what which songs you would do I.

michael Adrian smith Michael japan ten Anthrax two guys first twelve two ships aaron five piece twelve hours first tour first motivation three hours two new old guys three guitar players one arcus

The weather was cooperating with your with your media opportunities Yeah i i'm going to honest. Like photo shoots are not my favorite thing to do. They're not my strength But they're very necessary. And i'm trying to work on getting better but So i was really nervous to do. The photo. shoot withdrew just because I i don't know. I just gotta wanted to respect his. It's like his. It was his now. Now we're announced that right and so that's what are you sure you want me to be involved because like i don't want to insert myself into your career league you earned this. This is you and He said no that he wanted me there. All right then. I'll do and i think the snow made it more fun. I think it took some pressure off me as it was already.

"Even in years past when there was a big record discrepancy between team won north carolina. You team seventy nine That those games were always close and they were intense. And i don't think that's a now it's it always feels like any team can win any given day and it's really incredible and i think that now it feels like any team can finish in place and i think that just speaks to the league in so many different ways in especially if the resiliency of the players. That's that's what i think and The investment into teams Across the board. So it's exciting. I do think there's gonna be a shakeup And there's a lot of player movement to outside of that. So i think every year you have to kind of you you think some thirteen you forget that you know. They were traded or loaned or something like that to different state on the other. That's always possible not too so i'm excited. It's definitely looking forward to I mean it's called challenge is totally different totally demonstration but definitely look just looking for two games reported seeing everybody play and sizing up the competition and I'm glad you brought up sort of the the. The fact of the challenge cup is going to be again this year. I think that was kind of. I feel like end of so was like maybe the one sports league that actually like despite everything in two thousand twenty they. They grew Tremendously and i think the challenge cup was part of that. What do you think about you know you experienced. You know. unfortunately you did get hurt but you didn't get to sort of experienced that whole That that tournament out in salt lake. what i guess what. What are your thoughts on. Sort of the idea of this continuing. Are you excited about it. is it something different that not a lot of other leagues are doing What were your thoughts when you found out. Oh we're going to be doing this. This tournament style. Sort of you know in the future and do there need to be a playground also or whatever i think that's just a regular feature now we had we had one of our fall series To keep the tradition alive. I don't know if i'm gonna get in trouble for this answer. But i feel like i am a little opinionated on this and.

It'll be like hunting. That's a what do you do the same. It's great so i think this one is very timely.

It sounds like their level of involvement will be sort of varied and utilizing their personal connections and their professional competencies. Instead of just being like. Here's money i'm not going to be involved not going to be my time. This is just a financial investment for me. What does it mean for you to be part of a club. That has his outsized ambitions and making this progress in d. c. where you grew up and also sort of seeing how the rest of the league is growing in exactly the same way at the same time. So you're you're right in the middle of the of the peak of women's soccer as from from a cloud perspective you know probably ever was at like yet. It's definitely good to put that in perspective like you said like i've seen other professional leagues fold after seasons and me see the potential of maybe getting see a pro and the not being taken away so for the nfl to be running a historic link at historic performances is awesome and i think The investor group is incredible. Were super excited and again. Covert has put wrinkle and things that we'd love to get to meet them in person and i think that's something that will do in the future when it's safe to do so.

"So i'm i'm very Like on honored to be considered in that role for me. I feel like i don't put too much I don't think about it too much. That makes sense. I just tried to act as i would no matter what and i don't feel like i change my behavior whether it had the armband or not i just I kind of referenced earlier. Like i just wanna show up every day and be my best and make the team veteran team win. So whatever capacity whatever role. I need to fail to do that. i'll do that. And if if i'm the right role to be the captain for the team great and if i'm not great it doesn't it doesn't matter to me so I shouldn't i shouldn't say it doesn't matter to me. That sounds bad. But you know what. I what i'm trying to say. Absolutely you mentioned playing with rose again on the national team is a question. That always comes up whenever i think about the. Us women's national team. How challenging is it to stay in the frame of the most competitive in best team in the world Place extra pressure on you during your club season i think every player. They know they're being watched. They know that on a week to week basis. How their levels go and drop in. And and and pique matter to coaches as far as call ups. But how much does that like on. A you know you're thinking about this week. Yoga gained got a game plan. Watch video prepare. But also there's a call a call up window no coming up here and i wanna make sure that i put my best foot forward. How what's it like to balance those two things but particularly when the it's the competition is so incredibly high. Yeah i mean it's obviously been. It's been difficult for me to stay in the fold. Everyone knows. I've been in and out whether they injuries or do you know my own performance and it's tough..

I was stable. I was playing you know is planning on. I was applying a lot. So i felt pretty good but then When i did it in a challenge cup it clicked. And i i was. It was uncomfortable. I just like it just needs to click back to back and the longer it went i was like oh not going to click back like it's stuck like i couldn't bend over and over again. Hope it clicks. I have like you know i had very minimal. Range of motion is pretty uncomfortable but it was playing with roses so much fun. And i love playing with rose so It's it's sad to thing about that. I mean we'll hope. I'm hoping we'll play together more in the future In the net with the national team or somehow our cats cross you know on another team of the future. I would love that. Because she's just a joy to play with and we have a lot of fun together on and off the field sort of a fun question based on your rehab in sacramento.

We can touch base. We don't i don't wanna take up the whole interview recommendations. I said yeah. I'm pretty sure. Richie burke is happy. Happy to hear maybe the meatball moxie wasn't cable. I have no idea what it is off season. It's people talk. But i do wanna ask your you know. As one of the veteran players you came in under that coaching change From from you know. I can't even remember who the less coach was. But i do know. Richie burke was a new coach coming in i. What what you know. He definitely brings his own personality to the game. Say the lease get. what what. What was that change. Sort of like And you know he also named captain so talk a little bit about what that that was like.

This is a fun story but then it becomes like how much more movies they loved. Ones the bad guys. Like you'd have to fight bad guys now and you're like i don. I didn't even feel like that was what this movie is or why i'm enjoying this movie episode. Once it's in that part. I don't hate it. I don't think it's like so poorly done. But just in general lost me this like slows down the grind to a halt. Because now i feel like i have to watch a whole other movie. That's an like action movie where the action has not been cool. That hasn't been the part that i liked about. Yeah actually it was funny. I mean this time watching it in preparation for the show. I just wanted an excuse. Oh god yeah. It'd be prepared.

"Students as they deal with dating friendship and finding their way in the world. And what sets this show apart from the usual hookup show on college campuses is that it takes place at Gallaudet University in Washington, D. C. That's a private college for the deaf and hard of hearing. The characters are all deaf or hard of hearing, and they mainly speak in American sign language. One notable exception is Rodney Burford, who has a cochlear implant and acts as a sort of interpreter for the hearing audience. People is difficult. It'll behalf people where they could talk. You have that people who used to talk about a deal talking and then you have people who know they can't so they just cleaned Rodney plays football for Gallaudet and describes himself as the bad boy of the cast.

So the voice you hear will be Graysons. Welcome to the show Nile. Hi. It's a pleasure to be here. Thanks so much for having us today. It's great to have all of you know, Let's let's begin with you. You are an alum of Gallaudet. Why did you want to do or produce A TV show about your university. I think it really goes all the way back to the beginning, Which was my time on America's next top model and insolent stars so often being the only deaf person on a reality TV show left me with Ah, very sort of simplistic label. I was very one dimensional or cast that we have in spring. I was never really ask questions specific to maybe what I like. But I didn't like, or any sort of story that I brought to the table is a person. Andi thought there was a big flaw within the reality TV world s O. I came with the idea that I wanted to really spotlight students a deaf you Who are almost all completely deaf in college, but are experiencing the same things that every other college student would there facing decisions that every college student has to you. They're making the mistakes that are fairly typical and amazing. Things happened on that campus. I thought it was a wonderful entry point for getting people at home is an audience to see that People are just like everybody else. So it's a part of it is educating the broader public on what it's like to be deaf, right? And making that obviously a big part of the show. Not just saying, Oh, by the way, I'm deaf, but deaf. Being deaf is the central element. In life at Gallaudet and on the show. Absolutely Rodney, You are one of the stars of the show. And you are in various different love triangles are larger than triangles, squares. Rectangles pentagrams? I don't know. But you seem to have a very active love life. What is it like for you to be part of the show while going to school like l a debt? To be honest, it was just the same for me. Just accept the cameras for only me and change myself. I would live just living my life. But every part of my life was just being documented. Yeah, so, but it must be kind of weird to be Tohave every aspect of your life documented. Yeah, you could say that, Especially the more intimate moments. Right? Niles? Tell me why you want to focus so much on the romance. I mean, obviously, it's exciting and fun to watch. But why? Why is that a central part of the show? I think romance is such a universal feeling. You know, we really crave the feeling of being in love and You know, I think that's something that is so typical of the college experience, and we really truly felt that that was the perfect entry point for the hearing audience at home. To really make a connection to these cast members is deaf people right, but also is just equal members of society. And that was really our strategy. There is Rodney a lot of

The Queen's Gambit (Netflix Mini-Series 2020)

"Still in their top five I remember correctly. Is the queen's gambit. It was number one don't know where it is. Right now. I still think it's the number one show streaming right now on the streamer, but it is about the orphan who becomes A chess Phanom. And she learns chess from the maintenance man downstairs in the orphanage and her life. Just kind of goes from there, and I'm keeping it purposely broad, cause I so want you and I've been I've been guilty of Oversharing and I want to I want you guys to Kind of unfold the show for yourself because that's that's part of the magic of it, because it's so gosh darn good. We talked about it last week. Alexis is back and you watched it a cz. Well, I watched everything. Jeez, I could not stop watching it. And they binged it in four days. Completely just watched the whole thing. It's about what we did. Yeah, I'm with you. Oh, man. It is so good. Now I don't know much about chess. So I think that if you do love chess, you'll even get more in terms of the moves because they really had a really cool way of showing how they do it with the shadows of the ponds and the different You know pieces and then the boards. You know how they do the different moves. And what did the bishop do? And you know all of that, And there's all of these different ways to come at it. You know, different theories and thiss guy does it this way, and he always moves this first and so That was kind of lost on me. But it just It was such a great story and a great reminder that if you want to be the best at what you dio, it takes a lot of hard work a lot of dedication. And also trying around it. Right and remembering the people around. You mean I think about LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Serena Williams. Now, of course, this is in the sports world. Tom Brady, You know, like you are a goat. You really do need to work. You know, they're not out partying and having fun, And that's kind of the same case with the in the Queen's gambit, she Beth. She's just really focused on her goal of being the best chess player. I love that she didn't really focus on her gender, but the media did. And but it's still a hard world to be in when it's all it's all men like, generally older sixties in the fifties and sixties, So you know at the time it's during the Cold War. There's already tensions between the U. S and the Soviet Union already at that time, and then the best chess players come from the Soviet Union. So it was really reflective of the time to mean just in a chess game, So I really like that. I like the full circle aspect of the story toward the end. Again. I don't want to give too much away like you, said Jace. But itjust they answer a lot of questions that you may have as you're watching it and satisfying answers. I see what Yeah, yeah. Don. Where are you? I am just finished Episode four They're going to attack a lot into each episode, though. I mean, even by the end of the first one, you're like, Whoa. This is like a full movie. I just watched her. That's so true, Don. Yeah. In the anime pack a lot in. I mean so much. It's like the opposite of what they did with blind manner, not enough material that they snatched into. Ah, really long boring. Story That was way too many episodes. This is very efficient and I love the writing. You get to know her and what she's all about, Really? Not necessarily through the dialogue, but what they show you. Yes. Great writing, Thie. Other thing. It's the fashion one. Everything she wore. This will be nominated for costume design. Don't you think? Absolutely, without a doubt, the production design and the wardrobe. They're They're co stars. They're they're absolute co stars, and she carries it. She carries it so well, those clothes you know that old saying the the clothes don't wear you. You wear the clothes. She wears those clothes girl. I mean, she capital. W wears out, though, that wardrobe and Well, I just want to be her and Lex. I don't know if you felt this way, said this to dawn last week in the most complimentary way possible. I was sad. I was sad at the conclusion not because of the conclusion, but because I wanted more time with Beth, I interesting. I don't often have that reaction to characters. Um, you know, like Star Wars. I just, You know, I want to hang out with Ray and I want to know what's happening and all that stuff. But I really I'm sad that I'm not going to be invited in her world anymore. Well, that's what I was going to ask you because it does look like maybe a season two is in the works. Really? Yeah. There at least floating the idea around what it could be. Will they bring it back for a second season s wires asking that and It's not renewed. Of course, there's no news about that. But this next season would dive into her love life, her family history, that type of thing. I had the opposite reaction. I feel like this miniseries. It was perfect. In the way that they told it. I don't know if I need to know more. I love I love how it ended, and just That's great. Yeah, I'm not saying I want it because they'll mess it up, right? That's what I'm worried about. Yeah, I It's like big little lives. You know, the first was based on a book and that was near perfect. And then you went back, and you basically forced the author to create another story in a short amount of time. And you know, it wasn't a natural process. You gave the A writer. A hard deadline. I don't think you know. Not all. Not all creatives work well with that s O this. Yeah, but I was Muchas. I'm sad for that desire to him, Not with her. I would rather have that than an unsatisfying Sequel Hard to beat that this is Yeah, because this is just a compliment. I I miss her. I want to know what she's doing, but I'll rely on my imagination for that, and I'm fine. It's just It's just a huge compliment to the writer of the novel into the two the creatives behind this miniseries. They did such a good job that they made me want, Maura and that Whatmore could you ask for with a creative endeavor? You know Jerry Seinfeld, No one to get off the stage. They're off the stage and I miss her because she's so freaking cool. I want to have with her. I want her to be my friend. And then I want to steal all of her clothes. Be nude. That's not nice. Other things, didn't you guys? Yeah, No kidding. Just gorgeous. Benny Watts. The character who the guy who plays many Watts, Thomas Brody Stang stur. Yeah, He's that kid from love, Actually, Yeah. Grew up guys. He looks exactly the same thing just looks like someone pulled them from his head. Hold his legs and to stretch them a little bit. Was he also in finding Neverland with Johnny Depp? Yes, I think so. The writer of Peter Pan. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but it just looks like someone stretched him. You had put a mustache auto. And then the other kid is from Harry Potter. Yes, friend of her selling. Is Perry's cousin, His awful cousin that he lives with. Yeah, deadly Douglas. Yeah, and he's the other person and I just like I said this to dawn. I just like that the old you know, one of the themes that I realized after the fact is really about loneliness, you know, Beth the character and we're talking queen's gambit as we wrap it up here on Netflix. You know, it's a great lesson where sometimes you just see what's right in front of your face. And Beth did that. Beth was guilty of thinking that she was very alone. She was on ly kind of looking within just a few inches of her face. But if she just looked around She just looked a little bit to her left and right. She realized she really wasn't alone. And I think that's a good universal lesson for all of us that sometimes when we do feel very isolated and alone where we really are not, itjust takes Takes a moment to look around. And Beth really was Beth her whole life and, understandably, so she felt alone. But she really never wasn't. She always had people that was rooting for her, but she just never internally felt that way. Andi. I've found that fascinating to examine in that show. So the Queen's gambit everybody on Netflix If you haven't it, it's

Ethiopia to replace Tigray region leadership as forces clash

"Let's move to Ethiopia, which is currently technically in a state of civil war. On Thursday, the Ethiopian military and officials in the northern Tigre region accused each other of instigating a civil conflict that has seen fighting between government soldiers and troops loyal to the regional administration. In a televised address early on Wednesday, Ethiopia's prime minister Abbiamo accused the local government of attacking federal troops, and he said the region's ruling party, the Tigre, People's Liberation Front, or TPLF, were traitors. We're going to the National Defense Force that has been in the bunkers for the past 20, plus years defending its people and the country by paying heavy sacrifices with its blood and flesh has been attacked this evening in Michael. And many other places by traders and the force they organized. The army has been attacked from behind by its own citizens, and many have been martyred, wounded and properties destroyed. This force of destruction has been engaged in many counterproductive activities for the past many months. The regional president of Tigre. Debra Montgomery kill, has described the actions of the military as an invasion were joined on the line out from Addis Ababa by William Davison. He's a senior analyst on Ethiopia for the International Crisis Group. Thank you for joining us. What's the latest that you're hearing how many casualties in the fighting? Well, actually, the number of casualties of fatalities is one of the things that is not clear. There is still a communications blackout across Tigre. But there are certainly casualties being reported from the hospital visits and outside the thing. Essentially, we have an active conflict, a CZ you've clearly described in the introduction. The fighting has been concentrated in West too great so far has bean incursions by the federal military from West agree that Paul is the horror region on horror regions. Forces have also been involved. To some extent. I think it's worth noting that degrades main supply route would be through West a great and into Eastern sedan reported on so that perhaps explains the focus of that fighting, and we've also seen small search skirmishes around medically. To grace capital and in the last day or so, that is involved air strikes by the federal military to try and take out military installations around metal. And that really indicates a major problem here, which is that part of the federal military appeared to be siding with a great vision. Can you explain a little bit of background to this? Why has this situation been allowed to reach to this state of hostility? Well, I mean offices that there's a very long political background to great region has a long history of autonomy to the central government, as well as being involved in central politics. More recently, TPLF was the preeminent party, the ruling coalition that lasted essentially until 2018 when Communist at the Army came to power. No off. He took power on the tplf. They lost a lot off their federal positions and power. And there were all sorts of accusations traded back and forth allegations of destabilization as we've heard what's on the TPL aside. They said that they were unfairly targeted prosecutions by the federal government and also discrimination and marginalization More general Then there was the creation of a national ruling party by prime minister Beyond the TPLF objected to that, Andi they sat it out, became formerly part of the opposition this year. This is evolved into an electoral dispute at the constitutional disputes. The federal government tried to extend all government terms when it delayed elections due to covered 19 Tigre opposed us. They run their own poll and that lets the federal government describing Tigre is government is unlawful and takeaways Government government, saying the federal government had overstayed its constitutional mandate. That is the buildup to the conflict We have now and William, you're seeing evidence now that the military in Tigre is siding with the Local government. Is that right? Yes, That's right. Like I say, information blackout. I can't be sure of exactly what's occurring on the ground. But yesterday, the federal government says that the military the air force to try to take out missile launches on missiles. Now that is Ethiopian military hardware. So that suggests either elements of what is called the Northern Command a very powerful units of Egypt's military that has been fighting the war on manning the border with Eritrea that suggested either elements Since there have defected or otherwise under the control of the secret leadership. Otherwise, the air Force would not be bombing those installations. This is a major piece of the puzzle in terms of the balance of power here, and it suggests that we could be entering a protracted conflict that is a conflict that is likely to escalate, it could destabilize Ethiopia and its armed forces it could bring in Eritrea. And it could generally destabilize the entire region. This is why dialogue and some form of talks is absolutely in Paris, and

A record number of women will serve in Congress

"Of uncertainty followed Tuesday's vote. One thing definitely stood out, and that is a record number of GOP women who have been voted into congressional seats. Let's get into it. With our own Rebecca Greenfield. She wrote the story. She leads diversity coverage here at Bloomberg. She joins us on the phone, as does Bloomberg BusinessWeek editor Jill Weber. She he's on the Axis line in Brooklyn. So let's set it off. Set it up with you. I mean, there's obviously we're focusing on the outcome. But there again a lot of moving parts to this tons of other storylines and the blue wave. There was so much anticipation of And it remains to be determined if that will end up taking it out. Maybe, but regardless of that there was something of a red fortress. And the most dramatic part to me with this note that you know Rebecca hit in her story about the number of GOP women in Congress actually reaching a record. How significant was that, Rebecca? Because, you know, the other thing that you're saying here is that they had very little GOP official support. Yeah, I would say was, you know many way I don't want to overstate what happened. Republicans. The men will have 32 members heading to converse, at least as of me right now, Alfa enough that they're a record number of women heading to Congress this year, which I think The huge storyline in the mid term, But nobody seems to be backing out now, so there is a record number of women both party like together the parties, But yet the GOP just have much left gender diversity is on the Democrats. D'oh. Andi, so their record breaking number as much smaller, but they didn't break the record that cycle, and I do think that is notable.

Where do things stand with the 2020 Presidential Election?

"Three day just give us an opportunity here for Luna reset and tell you what's gonna happen. The states that are still being contested, are Wisconsin. Michigan. Pennsylvania. North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, those seven states. Throughout the day, Biden took the lead in Wisconsin and Michigan. And he's nibbled away at the lead that Trump has in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and in Georgia. No new results in Arizona or Nevada now reported. On what? I understand. Nevada is no longer counting tonight. There. No, they they've been counting, but they're not going to release the numbers. They were supposed to release him at five Pacific. And then they said, no, no, no, We're going to wait till nine AM Lou and I laid out at three o'clock. Ah, couple things as it relates to the election integrity side of of the issues, and there have been some legal developments in the past hour and a half. But what is the path to victory? Let's suppose that biting gets Wisconsin and Michigan just give it to him. OK, give Wisconsin and Michigan Blue. Let's 2 53 to 17. Okay, give in North Carolina. Trump has to win those two, where he's leading in both states in North Carolina. Most people agree he's got it. In Georgia. It's going to be awfully close. Ah, but he's currently UPIN. The trend has been in some of these counties decent for him enough to to win. And the trend with Caroline and Georgia. Okay, So now we have left. So we had to 53 for Biden to 48 for Trump with Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona, Outstanding. Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona Pencil Trump was leading right now. Arizona is down, but I've looked at is the argument that the Trump campaign's making an Arizona GOP officials are making that Arizona is likely to go to Trump. Because of the nature of where their their final ballots air from that they haven't counted yet. I find it persuasive, and it's why on Lee Fox and AP have called Arizona for Joe Biden. The other networks have not called Arizona who ABC call for Arizona and then retracted and put it back into include too close to call around 10 o'clock this morning Pacific time yet so Arizona could very well go to trump. Andi. I expect it probably will. Nevada also could go to trump. It is only in 7500 vote difference. And you know, the pool of voters up there have shown that they're much closer. Ah, and Trump, you know much better than people expected so Let's just for a moment, I assume He gets Pennsylvania. That's 2 68 at that point, not to say all he needs is either Nevada or Arizona. So either Arizona or Nevada and he wins. Um, it's a tight lane for him to drive through. He's gotta first button down Georgia. He's probably gonna get North Carolina. Then he's got, you know, win in Pennsylvania, and then he's gotta win either Nevada or Arizona. In Michigan and Wisconsin. I'm not saying that it's impossible for him to win. I'm just saying that The vote tallies. There seem to be moving away from him. I know this is a This is a not an easier lane, but it's easier than trying to win back Wisconsin at this point, even with a recount. And and that's what we know is happening. George W. Bush won in 2000 because he was up, all right, the Democrats Are running the vote counts in these states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin. Um, in Nevada. I believe what they're trying to do is whatever it takes. Let's get him above Trump. And if that means we slow count these things over here. I wouldn't put it past them again. We've seen shenanigans in the past. We already have documented shenanigans that are very concerning. But for our Democrats out, there are Republicans. I want the Democrats to have an open mind to allegations and say Yes, let's let's investigate because we want whoever wins president In this case, it would be your guy Biden to be free of any taint. Okay. We want to know that whoever won won fair and square we investigated any allegations. We put him to Raskin. We want For Republicans. I want you to be open to the notion that maybe Trump lost, Okay, We want all the legal votes to be counted and this has always been a close race. The media's been against the president. They've lied about him. Bayan outspend him. On so there may be of legal votes that air finally counted fully counted. The president may come up short. So I want you to be open to that as well. That is the agreement, but I think we should move forward on. But it's not inappropriate for Trump to demand an investigation or to file a lawsuit. The media's treating Trump is, though how dare you rip our fabric of democracy apart? There are some really suspicious things going on with the vote counts and the votes that we are calculating and tabulating Eso either we resolve it now. With a full and open and transparent investigation with a court process where judge gets to decide or you're going to sit with four years of a divided country Now, you may not mind that because you guys were great at dividing the country, but we would like actually like to do an investigation. We'd like to go through the process. Vette and argue about certain ballots and present the case. And if the judges and the Supreme Court says no, it's it's it is what it is. And that's what judges usually do. Loo they usually are like, Look, I'm going there on the side of counting ballots, not kicking him out. That's the process we should go through. And so anyone in the media that wants to shut that down go back in your hole. You've been telling us that there was going to a landslide for six months. You have no credibility, even lying about things all along. OK, you have no right to sit there and criticize people who say We would like to have a second set of eyes and a review process that the court can engage in. I got the burden of proof is on Trump. OK, let him have his burden of proof. The burden of proof is on trump and there is serious evidence out there. I mean, you know, the Internet and social media is filled with examples of things If they are anywhere close to true would be certainly worthy of Ah, very deeper investigation, so No, I think that if people keep their minds open to Some of the things that we've seen were the investigation. I think we'll move forward as a country with a little bit better. And and then you have nothing to lose by investigating up and by the way, the vote tally that did come in was Michigan. Moved binding up another 20,000 votes, and, you know, in terms of his lead, so that was the latest number that just got put up, Okay,

Donald Trump takes on Joe Biden in tight presidential race

"Think that the there's no doubt that Donald Trump outperformed or Joe Biden underperformed. However, you wanna put it what the Pre election predictions were and I think at least one of the explanations is that Trump had years. To organize the ground game. He had a database that included millions and millions of millions of things described he was to maximize turnout of his core supporters. Andi. He did it and that upended some of the polling because they clearly did not anticipate how effective the Trump Organization with the That's another factor clearly was covert fatigue. You know, it's Trump went around the country and said all we want to talk about his Kobe, Kobe, Kobe, let's get past it touched a nerve with a lot of Americans. They are sick and tired of wearing masks, and they're sick and tired of Not seeing their grandkids and they're sick and tired of working from home all day in their pajamas. And so I I think he ran ah, very effective campaigns or again that as I look at the map, I still think Joe Biden is going to squeak out a victory. It's entirely possible if states break in a certain way that he'll have exactly 270 electoral votes, meaning that he'll win by one vote. If he loses Pennsylvania, But he's won. Arizona keeps Nevada that's what you'll have is 270. So it's very, very close. But Trump's certainly defined a lot of expectations. Yeah, I've heard it could be 2 69 to 69. Then do we get the courts involved? Let me go back to something that you talked about. And that's the strategy for President Trump, didn't he? D'oh? What he did in 2016 to reinvigorate his base in the very end the last two weeks and some very small counties in those battleground states, while by maybe kind of did with Hillary Clinton did at the very end, and that was Think he had more votes than he did in those key places. Well, I think your analogy is reasonable. Clearly the dynamism the energy in the last few weeks was with Trump. Those rallies. He always had a theory that these rallies not only would bring people out, but let's remember the magnetic appeal that folks watching those rallies on TV or seeing clips of them on on their computers would feel a sense of Momenta MME. And when you contrast that now the difference, of course, was Hillary was kind of smug and self and complacent. Biden, I don't think was complacent, but they I think they looking back. They made a big mistake in thinking that if they played by all the rules of social distancing and having very few rallies and very few events that somehow people would admire them for doing that, when in the end I think he played into the stereotype of sleepy Joe, lacking energy and lacking dynamism, and the contrast in the last few weeks was quite striking on a very visceral level. You know, having settle this? I still think the odds favor If you look at the map There's only one state one that has wrote it differently from 2016. And that is on that is Arizona on and Why didn't I think if you look at the uncounted ballots is likely to win Wisconsin and likely to win Michigan, which is just enough for him. I think he's going to lose Pennsylvania. The only other wild card that I see here is Nevada. If buying loses in a violent and Trump is going to be president. But if Biden wins Nevada that's going to be president,

"Happy to bring onto the program. Dr Ken Dike Wall, the founder and CEO of age wave. Can just keynoted, the financial planner retreat that we held here at Edelman financial engines last week. This time, of course, was done. Virtually Ken's clients include half the Fortune 500. He received the American Society on a Jing's award twice. He's one of the 35 most influential thought leaders in the financial services industry, according to investment news. Ken. Thank you so much for coming back on the program record is always great to be with you. Now. The reason that I asked him to come on is because of something can said at our retreat. That I've heard. Can you say that several times you and I have known each other for 20 years. I've seen you speak more times than I can remember. You're one of my favorite public speakers. And you said something again in this event, but this time it finally hit me and it got me thinking you gave the following statistic as part of your conversation with us. You said every year in America. We produce about four million babies. And we are also producing about 20 million caregivers. Now that statistic itself is shocking five times as many people are caring for elders as they are for babies. That was really your point reflecting the aging society, right? That was the point you were making. Yes. But it got me thinking it's even worse than that, isn't it? Because when you have four million babies that doesn't mean four million new moms, lots of mom's air having their second or third baby. Which means we're not producing four million new moms were producing Maybe one or two million new moms versus the 20 million new caregivers. The dispersion is even worse than the statistic itself. Suggests, isn't it? Yeah, it's something that sort of off the radar, but it's not off the radar. I'm sure for all of your listeners because nearly every one of us is touched by this in our life, you know, looking after a mom or a dad or a spouse or brother or a sister. It's become a major part of life now and There's a couple of valuables and erected, really pull it together. First, we a cz, you know, and your listeners know we're all living quite a bit longer than humans have ever lived before. The life expectancy in the beginning of the 20th century was 47. Today. It's about 79. But by the way, I'll also tell you that there are 33 countries in the world that have a higher life expectancy than we do. We are very middling when it comes to longevity. But the really interesting piece of it is what's called health span. So our health span doesn't seem to be matching our lifespan. What I mean In the United States. On average, we spend about 10 years sick at the end of our lives, and sometimes we can even spend years dying. Now what that does is, it creates an entire segment of our population. Turning that suffering for whom Our health care system has not done a good job preventing illness or disease but also causes family members. Tohave tow walk away from their jobs, their take every Tuesday afternoon off or relocate. In order to look after either their spouse or their mom and dad and the numbers are enormous. You mentioned 20 million new ones last year, but all in is over 40 million elder caregivers right now in America. And that number can on ly get bigger, right? Yeah, it's going to get bigger and a little more complicated, and I'll explain this. First of all, one of the major variables here has to do with the relation between Men and women and let me explain in America. The average woman who's partnered with a man has a man whose 2.5 years older than her. That's the average right now. The women live five years longer than men. So what usually happens then, At the end of one's life, the mangroves, Il begins to falter. The wife will put everything inside and care for her maid for her loved one. He dies, she might be emotionally depleted. They might even be financially depleted because they perhaps didn't have the resources. Handle what happens when someone is ill. But then she's going to live another 7 to 10 years. Who's going to care for her now for boomers. Now I'm a boomer, and I think you are, too. When our parents were having us. They were averaging four kids each, so the greatest generation in the silent generation had a lot of kids. And they were kind of close at hand. Boomers only averaged about two kids each and about almost 20% of the boomers had no kids at all. And so what happens is when we enter into our later years. Who's going to care for us? And so there's gonna be more of a caregiving crunch, which means at home care industries. They're goingto surge. More and more people are going to seek out housemates. More and more. I think we need to put pressure on the medical system and our scientific systems. Because if we could knock out diseases like Alzheimer's, if we could wipe out I know that's something you're committed to if we could wipe out some of the really nasty diseases of the later years. Then we wouldn't have so many older people suffering and therefore we wouldn't have such a need for caregivers. So we've got to get the lifespan and the health span to be more in sync exactly. So this is something that is as fundamental is a gets from a financial planning perspective what we were now referring to as life planning to help people realize what your future is likely to hold, and you've got to think about it in terms of your intergenerational aspects of your family. How many Children do you have? How many of them can you rely on either because of proximity because of willingness because of financial wherewithal to be able to be a caregiver to you, And if you have suspicions that that's not going to be available to you for any of the above reasons you need to start thinking about alternative ways that you can get the care that you're going to need and not just you, but also for your spouse. Right. And another thing that's happened, Rick is it during this horrible covitz situation? 46% of all the deaths have occurred in nursing homes and still nursing facilities. And they're probably not completely to blame because they housed some of the most struggling elders by half of whom have Alzheimer's and dementia. But what happened as a result of that Is that a whole lot of people are saying to themselves, man. I don't think I want to be in a nursing home. Well, okay, then. Then you need to sit down with your financial planner and make sure you've got some resources or talk to your family. So that you could be looked after the comfort of your home in the way you want to be looked after without having to worry about being parked in a nursing home can thank you so much for raising this issue it is. I think something that we're not giving a lot of thought of. We've got an election coming up in a few days. We have the midst of the covert crisis in front of us. Andi. It's very difficult for people to look beyond the here and now given what our nation is facing imminently to looking ahead 5 10 20 years into our financial future, but it's extraordinarily important that we do so especially in the context of the election because it's our nation's leaders who were about to send or return to Washington. That are going to be key for figuring out the public policies necessary to help protect tens of millions of aging Americans over the coming couple of decades. Exactly. Ken Dike. Well, thank you so much for mentioning this your book. As I mentioned what retirees want. It's hugely popular already hitting all the bestseller lists. You're subtitle really says it all, though, about what your new book What retirees want is all about. Subtitle is a holistic view of life Third age, and that's a lot of what I'm trying to put forward in this book for our grand parents when they reach retirement age. Had a couple of three years before their batteries were out today, most of us we had 60. We have another 30 years in front of us and trying to figure out how to make sure we can fund those years and also have a great time during that stage of our life, and maybe even make some great contributions. I think it's going to be the challenge of the future. So I encourage you to pick up a copy of Ken's brand new book What Retirees Want Available Booksellers everywhere. Ken Dyke, Wild founder and CEO of Age wave. Thanks so much Kan for being back here on the program. Stay healthy. Stay safe, Rick. Thanks.

"Jack Mas and group It's expected to raise about $34.5 billion through an I P s right in Shanghai and Hong Kong on here's a little perspective for you. That's about the same valuations. JPMorgan Chase four times larger than Goldman Sachs. How about that? Let's get more on this company and why it's cornering so much attention, and it's rolling the global financial landscape. Bloomberg News deals reporter Crystal seas with us. She's on the phone in New York City. Crystal good to have you here with us. I mean, this is a blockbuster. Yeah, it's the biggest Theo As we expected. You know, a Ramco last year to be the big hero turned out to be a 29 billion dio. And in here we come 35 billion, so this really would be the biggest deal. It would be a monster deal. Why do people want to invest in it? Where's the appetite coming from? This's a story of a very much for player in the fintech space and all these impact player. It is a competition like that in this papal pasta then, but a plus the J. P. Morgan Really. It has a lot of influence in China because somehow take over the shares. Market shares. Traditional banks Path popular in China. And Ollie paid, which is the product that and operate with. It's probably the biggest player in China, so I mean that it's on Alone just share volume that they process gives them the valuation and this race that they could justify So Krystal is it a company that will continue to dominate in China and in Asia specifically or did something a company that we're going to see spread throughout the globe? Ultimately, Interestingly, 40% of the use of proceeds is actually going to be used for overseas payment extension on DH, although that's sounds like they're expanding out of China. Very much focused on Chinese customers. What it really means is that they will try to extend into merchant In in in places where Chinese tourists like to visit like, You know, when you go, too, I guess like the husband yard. When you go to Paris with me, you will feed a luxury stores with on Ali pay Q R code so That is that is what they want. That's what their expansion is focusing on. But it's very much so a China Pacific play and not even within Asia is very much a China. People play well on Krystal. It's also a Chinese listing. I feel like it's not lost on any of the US any of us that this wasn't a US listing. They're not on the nicely. They're not in the NASDAQ. They II Po'ed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. I'm assuming in large part because of the scrutiny Chinese listed firms are under here in the U. S. But How significant is it that this thing did not price in New York City? He has the biggest. Whoever is not a U. S listing is also is the Chinese company that is listening in China and Hong Kong that the concurrent listening It's interesting. This has not been done before. Some companies have tried Teo a simultaneous thing. And will be the first to pull it off. But more importantly, Andi Ali pay and we have. Hey, we're under White House scrutiny just last month. White House is trying to ban both products and the US So I think that just that also explains why us It's not a friendly environment for this idea. Yeah, are we expected to see in a tiara at any point? It could happen, but with 35 billion. I don't think that is the immediate next after them.

An Interview with Corporate Anthropologist Andi Simon

"Welcome back I've got Andy Simon, online Andy, how are you? I'm just wonderful. How are you Michael I am awesome. I'm vertical. That's always a good way to be a especially during times of pandemics and whatnot. So that looking forward to this interview for a bit of time now. So let's let's dive in. So tell the audience a little bit about yourself in in the. Work that you're doing. So my name is Andy Simon I'm a corporate anthropologist, a doctorate, and I am an expert in helping organizations and the people inside them change and I've had a background in both academics, and in business I was vp of a bank and S who've another bank can in healthcare during change. But what I learned to said people humans eight to change. And if nothing else a little anthropology might help them step back and see things through a fresh lens an essay due. You'd be amazed how their brain goes from fighting and resisting the changes to embracing them and saying Oh that's right here. So I would say, the way forward is all around you. If only you can see it and our job has been to help people do just that. So I'm an author and award winning author of a book called on the brink of fresh lens to take your business to new heights, and I'm a podcast like yourself and I totally enjoy sharing on podcast video and audio how people can help us change and humans really do hate to change they love the idea, but they hate to do it. So that's who I am. Changes a dirty word to a lot of people. I. See it all the time when I advise people to and I even use the word adjustment I don't even bring in the word change because they hear that word they automatically just tense up and you make some minor adjustments here and there and like okay I can do that and. I'm with you on that. It's so many people are afraid of because they think it's this big job in for some people it might be it might be really transformational for them to go through the work because they have to look within and sometimes people are afraid to look within because. You know we're our own worst enemies in many ways, and especially now during this pandemic, where we do have an opportunity to make some adjustments or changes in our lives that make us better off once we get to the next normal. So many people feel paralyzed and they don't want to take the necessary steps that they need to do in order to get to the goals and the things that they want in life. You know it's not personal. The brain hates it because that's how we. Ourselves to survive and our cultures and the stories we share our really our conversations are our reality. The way the brain works is it takes data informs a story about it, and once you have that story, you think that's reality. It's just a perception of it and you're always a hero in that story. So you only see the things that a firm believe to be true and the line I liked to say is the only truth is there's no truth but once you have that wonderful perception of reality, your brain is very happy. Keeping it everything around you has changed and it's no longer often, and so now the question is, how do I get you to change your story and how do you visualize a new or a new business and really come to grips with the changes that are taking place? I often tell my clients think if this is a play, you really know hamlet very well the tomorrow we have to play, Macbeth what would you do? You find the script or you'd write the script and then you begin to rehearse the script and then you'd have. A director to help you figure out where to stand on stage but we're trying to do that today in a moment you know used to say, if you want to change have a crisis or create one little I know cove it was going to give me my crisis and I tell people don't waste the crisis I have clients who have been trying to do something for three years and all of a sudden. I can do I wanted to go after that market and I can't tell you how easy it is now because everybody. Is unsettled and unsure and all the certainty that we want to protect ourselves is gone and so in uncertainty you know don't waste a crisis and so as we help companies change to your point, they do resist until they realized maybe this is a crisis that you have to address. Now, the question is, what's the new script? How do I play it and I appreciate that humans resist because it's scary new fell we'll have my job. How do I do this my business grow all the uncertainties but yesterday is tomorrow and we are futurists. Are podcasts was ranked in the top twenty futurist podcasts but humans are futures. We have to see you tomorrow to lift today, and that's what we begin to help them do. So as your listeners are listening in thinking about the story, you believe to be your truth and what are you going to have to do to change it and then change it manager mind. So it's exciting times for us. We're having a great time lots of customers and lots of interesting work to do.

Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling

"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires

"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.
