Mac Break Weekly the the annual iphone edition Mac break weekly any goes in the house and he actually in the library as usual highly emmy yes in a in a in a game of clue at so. He's done in the library a library with the titanium and watch. Actually I do carry a brass. candlesticks can never know and we have two doctors on the show. Rene Ritchie and Laura Gill L. are of course at Apple Park right now looking at the new iphones but we thought it'd be fun to have oh doctor. I did promise him he would get to rant about the new iphone Owen. Jj Stone own is good. You didn't have during the last dream. It would've been bad. It would have been Nice Road to cut my Mike Anyway so we thought that'd be better just to have you on afterwards just to prudence and welcoming back dock rock who is of course doc rock tips. He's great youtuber and it's always good to have two doctors on the show in case. I have a heart attack doc rock welcome Aloha. We're in Hawaii are are you doc. I'm in Honolulu a roughly kakaako which is now the news slinky city but Israeli about a mile Waikiki nice to have you be. Al Thank you what is be Alpha. That's your hat. What does that mean Massoni shooter. I'm a Sony shooter to do. You get the get the mark for yet. I'm waiting. I'm waiting to ship tomorrow day. After tomorrow is going to be yeah you're you're a canon. Guy all right and we got them all here. We got them all in the house. Oh I didn't realize they be Alpha's the Sony Alpha yeah the a seven four comes out sixty one mega pixels on third Alpha male Alpha male. I can't wait to get actually really I try. I had I had ordered the like a cue to which was ridiculous five thousand dollars camera when when Sony me when I found out at the Sony a seven Mark Four for three thousand two hundred ninety eight dollars. I said I'm taking it and then I treated myself to a lend so ended up the same amount now. Don't you feel silly. Next phone will be justice. Professional better or still can't be bread. They were coming off the apple iphone eleven announcement yes it is the iphone eleven not ex-. I but eleven and actually to start with the iphone apple did not it was very interesting apple started with arcade plus thence talked about TV plus then talked about the watch. We're in our in. I'm thinking are they going to talk about the iphone they did. The IPAD finally got to the IFO so we'll do it in reverse order. The one thing I thought was very interesting. I'm curious what you all think that is. It almost seemed like there was just one new iphone. They spent the big part of the beginning talking about the iphone eleven which is their replacement for the IPHONE. Ten are starting at six ninety nine. I'm calling the people's iphone yeah. That's a if there was one motif that ran in through in my mind ran throughout this entire show that willing whether they're doing this explicit expressly or not there really attacking the point that apple stuff is only for the people who are of a certain have a certain amount of money in their wallet almost almost across the entire range of announcements. Yes showing off the new iphone eleven that what that was not presented as hey. Here's a strip down version. No here is the accent here. Here is the successor to last year's iphone but now it really is the same cost as what we would you probably think of as a moderately priced flagship foam now that most of their flagships are going for one hundred dollars more than that and we'll get into the other stuff later later on but almost every other category there was reason to say that well we have now. We have a really amazing three hundred and thirty dollars a computer. We have we have an apple. We'll watch that it's not the latest but we're dropping prices down to make sure that more people can get access to them. Who Don't necessarily have the premium money to spend so I I'm very very pleased that they that they decided sighted to present the iphone eleven again not as the Oh we've got a plastic case and we decided to make part of the CPU out of some sort of a compressed mulch sort of thing to save save money is like they're trying to say here's this will compete with an x pixel phone with the next galaxy phone and it's just as good as everything else and to their credit they're keeping the phone eight and the iphone ten are and they and the iphone eight starts what as low as three hundred and fifty nine dollars which I think means that there is an iphone for every price point. I think think that's I think I think four hundred I could be wrong for the iphone as four ninety. Let me look here. Let's see these new ones iphone eight so I mean this actually there's six and seven nine going all the way yeah yeah and I think they've they really wanted to take some wind out of Google sales because they came out Google came out with a lower priced version of the pixel that became just a huge huge seller probably the best selling pixel they've ever made again at that same price point. I don't know if that was an apples mind as they're trying to figure out pricing but the ability to have an iphone eight which is still kick butt phone for five hundred bucks is a really really good development four forty nine for the iphone eight five forty nine for the iphone eight plus five ninety ninety nine for the iphone ten are and then of course all the new ones. Oh and are you excited. Did you like what you see. What part are we talking about the phone yeah. Let's let's over the phone. I'll let you get excited about something else later so first of all. Why isn't this phone having always on display. Okay okay watching this Keno on my phone youtube. Finally thank you Lord Jimmy Christmas. I can't do a split screen and tweet to trash trash talk. I want to tweet while I'm watching the video. 'cause I'm GONNA I phone. That's why Oh but let me just you got an ultra wide screen camera cookies to you. I was cookies at my screen alday. Take them so. I can't tell you right now but I don't cookies cookies for ultralight like I mean other than them showing APP that I could fill a studio a interview with nineteen different cameras so that was cool to film account because God knows US professionals. Are you wait till you go to see CBS phone. Now you post nothing today reported from your iphone eleven pro. I don't want to hear nothing else not no. I actually recorded on Komo. I'm already decided that's the phone I'm taking the CAS because I can record me and the person I'm talking to at the same time. It's the it's the Arrow Morris phone. That's film. If you have to buy a third party APP which isn't yet available and we don't know film. I think is fairly expensive. These are in-app purchases. Filming starts out free and then it's like got nine hundred dollars for the pro pack. That's not too bad. That's not too bad. It's not bad at all you what it does is not bad at all the fact that this phone is fast enough to shoop with with both the front and the back camera or two of of the back lenses at the same time with. I guess saving two separate streams is pretty impressive. I'm guessing that's also because they're using using faster memory faster storage which other other manufacturers have started to do as well but they didn't mention that there's a lot of specs that was that was one and that's part of the like the cloud of features that was on the screen at some point where they're calling pro desktop their desktop class storage right. Let let me ask you. What do you think I'm really looking forward to the pro for the simple reason that I do shoot a lot of video with the iphone because it makes great bureau stuff for my youtube videos and I'm shooting right now with cinema movie cinema robot what kind of like a gamble and I'm thinking about getting the new Osmo so it's GonNa be great to be able to shoot both directions or with the meal which I've used for a long time you had that fourcade that laws you have switch around Merano like like the old telecaster days or that that new thing that I use triangle Miami guys there you go so I mean I remember what it tries to 'cause. I used to fix them and set them up in do that. In a phone with a you know zero two hundred dollars. KIMBLE's can amazing. They're going to have to redesign a few of these kimmel's because a lot of them block the the the front facing camera when shooting in the back x facing camera redesign a little bit so I can get both lenses going but I have to say your you make a good point Owen. It's not like this is the first phone with three lenses. This is not the first phone with ultra white. I've been using the Samsung as ten plus and now the no ten plus with three lenses and that was the first thing I noticed is the ultra-wide and how much I I like it. yeah. I do have to say it looked like maybe one of you can comment on this one of the problems with the ultra wide it's it's effectively thirteen millimeters of courses his distortion around the edges curved weird curvature and the images apple was showing and we'll have to wait till we get the phones to really check look like they'd all been corrected. There wasn't in a lot of curvature it. They looked pretty. Darn good in camera. It must yeah as you're going yeah which is Great Kerr. According to the data that was attached to the one of the ultra-wide super by twelve megapixel image. was the a thirty five millimeter equivalent of thirteen millimeter. Lens One hundred twenty millimeter a AH field of US and may agree. I was looking at the edges and it really did look clean edge to edge. That's a hard thing to do again. That camera is the most impressive the thing of the day for the phone for me like when I go through at twenty minutes of the machine learning and show me a video game play that I've seen for the last nine years Ara on an iphone. Se thirty three. It's literally the same thing. I remember last year when they show him the iphone Max and they had somebody Eddie shooting baskets and the and the phone was tracking a basketball counting baskin and I'm like where's that at that that you'll technology and use in my my phone. I I mean I coach softball all kinds of I'm like man. I could actually use something like that. We're okay but you'RE GONNA but we're still better were three or four thousand times computer learning for what what was that was my question is if you would in machine technology if you put in machine learning hardware which apple was loading up on him by the way important of note the first time ever that somebody from the CPU design team was invited up onstage during this flagship event for apple shows apple is really all in on its own internal journal CPU designs. I think that's important kind of bellwether going forward for desktops as well but they did spend time talking about this machine learning pipeline and and at least for most portable devices all the machine learning is done off you know machine and then the model is put on the the phone you don't really but I guess apple wants to do more in cameras at it. Well remember that one of Apple's big big highlights is that yes we're doing machine learning and and and ai but we're doing as much on device as possible so we have to send as little data off of your phone to a central server as possible and we're still waiting for just just like. I said we're we're waiting for a company to say hey here. Is our machine learning APP that we've created. That does amazing things. That's GonNa make all this justifiable justify. The key with machine learning is a huge data set you learn from a huge data set and then you take the learning the model that you created and you put that on the phone having having a you're not inputting huge data set into the phone so I'm going to personalize your own results though don't we don't but if doing that's based on a model title was trained off phone anyway for biggest the Apple Watch. They're collecting data their abstract leaking a lot. They even at research thing that's coming up. I thought was impressive. You know the research APP is GonNa do wonders and I will be the first thing that I stand here right now. Now a three days away from fifty three years old grown man two hundred fifty pound six foot tall and when they started that Apple Watch video store not decide is especially especially the one where the mom talked about you know on making it to the hospital in time you know for her birthday because she was having heart problems or whatever that was amazing. the little cross country kid like right when they got to that cross country running answer he uses the music to block people out your the tier was like starting to get all up in a beard dow that was really really hard felt in people like to tease apple for that kind of stuff but that's because it doesn't affect you right as a person who has asthma and I a couple years back. I had a stroke so I watch my heart. Now you know my watch helps me and I don't like it when when people pooh-poohed out because it doesn't affect you because you happen to be lucky enough not to have had any issues so I could apple for that no matter what any of the naysayers say he doesn't we haven't mentioned that Owen actually has no heart so it's not useful. I I have high blood pressure. I have a we car. I have to go get tested every six months so it does affect me but my doctor who is very proactive tells me that there's not really that much that I should be. I shouldn't be dependent on his watch. Basically is what I've been told so. Is it useful to watch my heart rate. Yes when I've gone into the doctor actor and I've checked it against things. It's not always accurate but I mean at least it's something so it is better to have the not have a lot of devices have and as far as the kid running and listening to music. I don't out again. I don't have a hard I'm like we we never had a- ipods before like little ear buds from Samsung have four gigabytes of storage storage. I can put music at him and I just you know again. I get marketing but I I one of those who have a heart certain again based. It's great marketing but it is just that you're exactly right. It's just it's a well a tear jerking beautiful movie which Apple's the best at it. They're very good at I'm more interested frankly in speeds and feeds. I thought it was really what I thought was really interesting was apple dividing the presentation. They did a presentation nation for normal people. That's the iphone eleven the base model the replacement for the ten are and they talked about you know all the cool things the iphone it does all the great pictures and then there was a very clear line and now for those of you who really care about machine learning or pretend to or speeds and feeds now. We're going to get the enthusiast phone. I think this is something apple has done in the past. Remember Steve Jobs came back to apple drew that quadrant. He said we have too many models. There's really only a four kinds of models. There's pro and consumer there's desktop and mobile and I think this is apple kind of going back to that and I think that's why the pro monikers really important. There is a a there's a consumer version of the phone. That's the one we're going to sell a lot of that's the one that is much more affordable. What was it six ninety nine. That's that's that's a great starting price and and then but for those of you for whom prices for willing to pay three hundred bucks more for whom prices than object we we look at all the technology we can build in this kind of what they've been doing with. The Macintosh is kind of what we're doing the MAC MAC book and what they've done with the IPAD and I think this is really smart move on their part. Well go ahead. Andy Dot ca just that the only thing that we've been sort of debating as looked like they were doing something that they're going to call a pro is what would make a phone into a pro thing and whereas Samsung has the answer of we're going to give you amazing amounts of storage. We're going to give view expandable storage. We're going to give you the ability to use as a desktop. We're going to give you a stylus which are things that will appeal to somebody who who feels they don't. They don't want to be carrying a tablet or am or notebook around anywhere. The only thing that apple was able to really say is to hit upon the point a wonderful camera this is and what a wonderful videos that these these things should and also here is how oh good. The display is which is something that really is only going to affect you if you're using it to shoot video and to take pictures and of course it makes all your apple. TV plus content look better but it also looks fine on the cheaper camera I a cheaper cheaper phone I just and the only other thing that was exclusive that really hit upon was like we discussed improvements to WHO and to the CPU for machine learning operations though I don't know if that was exclusive to the iphone eleven pro really so. It's weird to think that the only thing that can really say about it is that now you can actually shoot professional level video using this using this new phone. They weren't saying now. They weren't saying you know how you often. We'll take take videos of your kids and they come out looking lousy because the phone has not understand that these little rats are jumping up and down into and out of light. We've got with the pro WPRO phone. We've got so much power and so much learning and so many cameras that you will always make sure you get great pictures of your kids or your dogs vacations. It was all those all we rent. Of course you're going rented studio a film studio you hire all these actors all these professional sound and then you're. GonNa shoot it with a phone okay. Maybe rent a red camera. I don't know but okay. That's Great Talk Rock. I mean you're you would qualify as a pro at this point given what moving as I sued in red sometimes I shoot in this alarm. Sometimes I shoot in phone and it's really a matter of the situation of how obtrusive you want the camera hammer to be and so one of the benefits of having a phone that is qualified enough to basically be almost hidden is sometimes it allows the candid did stuff to become candidate rate when I set up a Sackler v Fifteen in plaza a red or a larger format camera or even large deals this alarmed by the time you hook up all of the Kumaon takes you know to make it really good murless it it now. There is a camera but the phone. It's really good and as much as again in these events we love the pupil phones but everyday if you watch news they get somebody that manages manages to get something. That's very integral to the story in the only way they shot it was because they had a phone in their pocket and Rick Sandwiches to say the most important phone. Is the the one you have in your pocket so yes. The camera will always be but one thing that I want everybody to keep in mind and I'm going to China my rene. Remember every body body shape of the iphone the third or fourth one is the maximum the bestest in the greatest of all of that so we weren't expecting any major change because this is not a retooling year next steers retooling year so for what it's worth we got sort of what's always on this revision of an iphone from all the way back to three. GS ARE WE KINDA delayed. Though for the retailing year last year was the s model normally this sort of been the retooling year apple gap because anniversary than I in that the cycle the cycle yeah I have to say I had to laugh in the video. They're showing the professionals using the IPHONE. Okay okay. I'M GONNA have to memorize this eleven pro Max to shoot a string quartet and they've got it on a Dahlie on on a professional tripod you know one of those with the you know the glide liquid heads and it's an amount of this little dinky little phone on that and it it it would be a seventeen year old in stolen. Shopping cart uses a little select. If you spend a little bit more money to get like the next a little better than what you're going to get as a seventeen year old you will be able to make those wonderful the next level I agree put him on escape or an push him and barely touched on. They barely touched on stabilization. They talked about it real quick. THATT's going to be key to isn't it. That's going to be keyboard you know coming from like Oz Mon Osmo pocket which a great stabilisers is going to be interesting to see how much income stabilization this thing really can do. I talk. I have this feeling there is in my head. I I am now starting to see stabilized video and it's bugging me because it's a little bit of it's almost like a jelly like you can feel you can see the stabilization that's warp stabilization and software after the fact no-now and I don't like it or you mean regular. Yeah thank thank you right. Oh Yeah it's weird and I almost want to say bring back hand held. I don't think they were getting we've got used to it. We can overdo stabilization. It'd be very interesting. Chrissy apple to a light touch stabilization that does look like the Blair witch learn which is much bad than watching this through you gotta gotTa make video image stabilized Blair witch project and see how how much less scary that is more than a mom watching her kid plays soccer or Dad Washington someplace basketball game and show me some back and forth traffic. That's your phone but that was Dali and you're AH is putting this dividing line. Here's the soccer mom phone and here's the I don't know the videography able as Asia's software and the chip chipped all the same. That's what I mean about how chip and I can't watch a video split screen and you're telling me is the most powerful chip to two years out of pose Jose every other phone but I can't split screen and run to Apps at the same time on my phone but as to todd more powerful than any phone is out right now. Oh and I can't do that I so and there are certain things that I'm like. What are you doing? We've tested this with real people and we found out I don't I I've had in my they've had it on my Samsung except for the people do I just sat and watched a football on Sunday with four guys had three phones out and sue tablets does everybody has split screens Watson fantasy so I don't think you live in a real world like I live Roy. See People do it all the time. My cousin writes notes on his galaxy note note nine and he translates all this stuff really thinks it's the greatest gift to the world okay so I mean real world and I'm inroad everyday regular people. I see people that used used the note for businesses and right stupid notes which again I don't really need the pen but I would just like to do two things on my most powerful phone at one time as opposed. I was just watching a youtube video when I can't do anything else. You can only recently do two things on your IPAD and you have a giant screen but I don't feel like carrying around a fourteen foot bapro zero all the time to do things. I've had. I've had I've had multi-screen on on all my galaxies for years that I you know it seems like a cool feature but I never think think to use it. It's not well. It's not something that you use every single moment of the day but it's just going to say when you're in a situation where I would like to keep track of two things at the same time in in my hand like I want to know WanNa know where my where where I am on this moving map so I know when to get off this train but I also want to keep up with tweets are also want to look look at pictures. That's when you're like. You glad I had this angling. Wait a minute. I realize the event if I could live tweet one of the perfect uses phone and I can t ninety percent of America four facebook and actually I realized why it's not an issue for me because I always I have three or four phones with me so I just get my other phone out. If I but now you solve the problem multitask everybody should have one Samsung and one I phone and just it makes sense. I'd be sitting in front of me too two. That's that's neither here nor there was wondering is honestly. I find myself doing this. Green Swab really fast in. I guess because I can't see that having the type full is fine. It doesn't really bother me is the single pop pop and it doesn't hurt anything now however I here's the thing I found out about a lot of the Albany's the play catcher apple has always been and I sometimes hate them or sometimes loves them for him. We're not how can put anything in just because it's possible we Kinda SORTA. Would it make sure it works and the tent the Times that they've taken a risk and gone from and to do something without making I fully baked. We have ripped him a new apple so I prefer that they let everybody else. Play around with it and then back and steal it when it's ready and ah that's the experience that we point out we've had three lenses while way. Did it Samsung. Did it three lenses. I think it's a great thing I I do have to say. Though what did that's really cool is all three lenses on the pro or hot. They all three are focused. They all three are color balanced and if you wanNA slide your finger and sume in it's going to be ready to go. That is pretty cool. That's awesome always on display display. I think that's baked. I think like every phone in America aside apple stones they still don't do that and they showed me that they have up to a one knit line of power in the just do it just put it in a phone while you're doing it but look at the battery life they added on the iphone eleven pro. Max X. D. R. DO Hickey. They added five hours battery life. That's kind of doing that these days. Let's let's let's make sure that we unpack unpack it over the next week as people try to analyze this because there are a little bit saying okay compared to the excess up to four hours more with pro. Max Up to five there was another another stat that also compared to think to a different to the I thought they were comparing it to the eight tennis Max five hours. No they said five hours more than that. We're GONNA have to to go to the tape but I my impression it was five are more than the tennis Max the existing when the large phone yeah I mean I'm saying that it was a little bit. There's a little bit to unpack there before I would remove marks around it at an hour after the show when they when you want to tell Oh people that oh it has up to four or five hours more you will see you want a quote exactly what they say not take responsibility for it next week. I'll take responsibility for okay. It seems as as though that is exactly what's going to happen now but there's seemed to be a little bit of federal lemme say that the caveat absolutely is that none of us have even played aide with this phone because we're not at the Apple Park and especially with photography I take everything with a grain of salt because those their images carefully picked and we have to I see how it works in the real and earlier that just wish that invented night mode pretty quickly quickly over it because they know that they know how good the competitors are doing with night mode and now they're thinking oh we have this new mode and here's a very very quick one single picture of how well it works look good. Let's take let's take another look at that bionic chip but things that most there are there are plenty of people particularly journalists particularly journalists who are putting their lives on the line by being citizens of a government that really really really wants them to disappear that do professional level video and really great storytelling retelling with their phones however most of the people are going to be buying these phones again are gonna be wanting to wanting to say that remember that time where we took that picture of of the kid at Disney's castle title and someone someone walked right in the middle of the picture at the exact wrong time we missed it or remember the time where the the baby fidgeted so we only got a blur of the baby they really want to see that they'll spend the extra three hundred bucks because here is the video that was shot with another person's camera that it didn't come out well at all. Here's how we manage to fake much much better photographer with much much better camera with a much much more. Well behaved kid because we've got all this technical know. How in this camera that's why I'm surprised that they really really really went hard on if you want and for those of you who are renting a studio and putting up and buying a D. renting a dolly rig and our professional cinematographer. That's I mean how how many people in the audience are raising the has. Wow that's totally me. Apple finally gets there. I think the I think I want to say one more time. I think you guys are missing the point that apple had had to they had to audiences two different messages for their iphone they had the regular person the soccer mom the Owen. Jj Whatever Guy and then they they had the the the enthusiast doc rock people like me who are all about speeds and feeds and you know we say oh it's got core L. Three and sixty four bits and so I think that that that what they did a good job of to be of splitting those two audiences and so don't conflict the messages edges. There's an to different audiences to be clear one. I do have a Max. I am of the top tier. I'm just talking about but the the differences France's that again the same chip so that that in my mind makes you feel the same. The one thing I appreciate that they did was change. The branding is no longer in Exeter is just it's going to be going on for twelve on forward so even though it makes it easier for people to make that decision and choice what is really going to come down. Choose what people can afford you know. I think this is fifty dollars less than ex came out last year right town launched a seven forty nine so that in itself is reaction definitely towards Pixel Pixel three a device and how well that's done and there is a market for that bring that price down but I feel like people are going Oh. That's a cheaper phone. It can afford it or not like a lot of my friends kids. I mean I live in myrlie okay town but like seventeen her friend experts now because they felt like that was the cheaper phone by by the parents got the X. or access and then they got all their kids ex ours because you know you could buy one get one free or whatever that's always the deal. They have on that lower to your phone well. It turns out that said this on stage. It was the best selling iphone of the year was the best phone ever. Yeah it also had the best battery life of any phone. and I think that was a signal frankly to apple. I think Apple's response to that signal is good. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Our first thing we're going to talk about on stage is our next generation. Asian ten are which is the iphone eleven and then we're gonNA talk about this high end phone. I think this is smart. I think apple has found to different audiences. I think the best as part of getting to eleven is folly. Don't have to hear people called the ten as I was. GonNa say Hang. It's ten is not saying I'm glad I'm slowly going away because uh people who say lego without the s that stuff bothers US orders right the DVD disc. That guy can't Brandon's apples. I got out though I have a model title ten. Tesla and it's very confusing whether to call it the Model X. or the model ten. I've got every time I look at every one. US has a cognitive load from Apple's decision to represent the number Tan with an ex and that's only some cognitive cycles goals professor ten as the leader of the ten men ten milliliter of the X. Men Right and so it's very nice. Girlfriends still calls me everyone when I got to tell her. No I had a high school kid. Call me on the radio show yesterday saying would you please help me all of my friends in high school. Call it the IPHONE X. Success or the IPHONE X. are would you please help me tell them it's ten and I said I I don't I understand. It looks like it's the IPHONE X. Pronounce my fault as brand like I said I was GonNa say we got these eleven and twelve using good the good old fashioned Arabic numerals. I Chris we've got the Arabs are in charge instead of the Romans. I failed school fourteen times. They can't expect me to know I'm afford afford to. Since when do I have to figure out Roman numerals G I got. I got one question for you. Leo Yeah because I think I might of heard you when I was said. The studio was wrongly midnight. Green as well. You know you're not alone. In fact when you go to apple's website on the iphone what color where did they show you they show you midnight green and thanks yes money been agreeing and the Philadelphia Eagles. I'm definitely sir. Michael Sargent says he's buying Green I just think a green phone ugly. Nobody know everybody doesn't Love Green. Everybody loves green but you everybody you saw turns out. It's a color this year the green and the Purple Yeah Yeah Green and purple is still rating fast. You know why somebody in Apple's department knows you know why I hate green because I'm old and I remember when Avocado was the color of refrigerators ovens avocados and it burnt orange and you know everything comes around again so that that was the seventy s here. We are forty years later thirty years later and it's back burner. I'm sorry it's Avocado too. That's my refrigerator. That's why you WanNa eat to Bertelsmann earlier. That is the dark olive green color. I've got on the AMMO cases that I've got back. McCain and it's a very very forceful color. It's not light. It's at least at least the eleven and the eleven pro at least breaking now we we have we have in grade a slightly different shade of Grade Raid Gray Shiny grey or gold like okay. Thank you for giving us three colors but in the end the depressing post-apocalyptic nine nine hundred eighty eighty four commercial this is this is the company is so terrified of color. It's like this these laptops. These these phones would not be out of place in the same. I'm GONNA show you will show doc rocks kitchen when he was twelve years old. Ask It's got everything Amana radar range the predate microwave was the moderator may put Wood Plastic Aston would tone on the radar inch to make it look classy and and you're right you've got those giant stick on flower wallpaper and of course she's wearing a burnt orange pants suit that is seven in a nutshell right queen. You remember stickers in the bathtub so yes all flowers yeah. That's what they are. Welcome to the seventies my friends can we talk about the other thing that we're not talking about. What's that let me Honolulu on the phone. I'm GonNa do the phone. We'll take a break then. We'll do the other thing. I'm trying to keep it all. I'm trying to segment having trying to give it order because otherwise taking on a journey enjoy the journey. It's a process but I'm glad you mentioned green. That is an interesting choice. They still have black white and gold right right and green is is green for the American market because remember gold was really thought. The Chinese market wanted gold. I'd never thought about it so any mention the ammo oh can but I think that's another reason why I lived along portion of my life staring at that color religiously talk to me doesn't give it much much cachet to be honest with you. Look it looks like reminds me of seventy six Gremlin. No it's it's the it's the same color as Steve McQueen's Mustang and bullet. Oh is it really was it college. Seventy green gene had that slow back Mustang Yeah Torino El Camino the Torino color so those are the decisions is that you will have to make and as we expected the iphone eleven and eleven pro pro Max will be available for pre order on Friday although a new time just two little make a note of this not midnight Pacific Time but five am Pacific Time what are you you'll Hawaii.

There's something going on but I don't think quitter is a a mass appeal phenomenon. He'll be east movies. The people be tweeting people be tweets so I take that not as a solid piece of evidence that people do multi screens and just people who do twitter but someone's watching this show any tweeted me about normal people. Don't watch this show either through. I'll give that yeah. No I mean this is the show for the pros. Hey Hey Carson Bondi host.

I love this time of year because that's when the I know it's apple iphone time because a gazelle because because they'll ads return it's through tyranny. Gazelle ads in the fall gazelle dot com slash twit to get started in fact. We always make a big box in the about about two weeks. We're GONNA have a big box to send back to Gazelle as the new stuff comes in anything more to say about the IPHONE. I'm excited about the camera. Apple has always owned video right. I I mean you can talk about the Pixel three and I'm sure next month. Google has a lot to say about the pixel four but apple's always been the best in video. You agree doc absolutely yeah. I can have having used them all just something that they they spend a lot of time worrying about any good job yeah and real quick before. I left too quick. Take AAC I love it. I don't know if they stole out. Another phone already. Has It but I love that idea. That's because you use snapchat. I've been trying to use it. I've been trying to shoot a picture and then my niece. She can't keep still she starts running and flip it into video mode any you don't miss those little things knowing yeah but isn't don't doesn't every social up now do that. I mean you press you. You're taking a picture or you. Press it long and you get a video that you hold it. Yep Yeah conditioned to do that and yeah. That's that's apple doing the right thing but again it really was the best. I give it to the Pixel but the video they always are on point and they're a little behind right. They're playing catch up now with with the Pixel and to some degree the Samsung in the wall ways they're playing a little catch up. They just now have nightside and then next month. There's going to be new pixel the Pixel exa four and I presume AH apple get leapfrogged once again. I'd be interested to see what apple what Google video yeah once again because they don't have the burden of Pixel being a professor thought of as a professional camera they can do features like hey look. Here's a picture of here's the of the very latest iphone taking a picture in a at a dark pizza party room and having a kids birthday and here's a picture of his peers aren't new camera doing that right so that's the sort of features that I hope that apple breath why would help that apple would continue to promote and also continued to develop the ones that say it's always about. Here's a big white button. Press the button and don't think about it and you will get a great picture every single time every single situation. That's how you win the camera game one and they had to do that because Google nailed it in marketing at once yeah by running that three hey here's a five hundred dollar phone taking pictures in the dark other. I can't like they kill it with that commercial and let regular people know what's is that what's nightside like. I had a lot of people like what is that so glad to have it. That's what I'm saying. I you know I phoned us. I'm stuck at ecosystem so I'm glad that I having on phone. I don't have to carry around my pixels much anymore. Depending on how good it works we'll see one thing apple has always done that makes video. A little bit better is when you shoot in video. You're shooting in. HDR In in real time and it's noticeably better but you couldn't get in the past you couldn't get it a four K. Sixty frames per second. I'm reading between the lines didn't mentioned on stage but this is in the copy on the webpage epic processing power means it can shoot four K. video with extended extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilization all at sixty frames per second it sounds it sounds to me like they're saying yes we have enough processing power now to do it at a yes and and HD Rx Dr they call it in the at the highest frame rates at four. K. and I also price something to do with high speed storage as well. That's exciting also the point of the color grading on device without addicts. Take it into a movie or something like that. That's interesting too yeah. They built in video editing into the camera APP. Which is Mine Wagner. I kinda. I kinda liked that. I use lewellen fusion a lot but I'm it's really hard to use. Luma fusion was sausage fingers so I didn't have a lot of stake in wanting the pin and but I would have invited so normally what I do. Luma fees is basics and then jumping to the ipad to finish editing that is one thing that some thought thought might come with a pro version of the iphone is a stylus of some kind of course note has a stylist and while I never use it There are a lot of people who really really want that fusion on the phone. I tried to do it but yeah. It's really small but it's a great APP but it it is really small too. I really love into black and white stuff too yeah quick because I I do street. Photography and the Masters is also has to be black and white and half the people in it. You know like it has to be candidate not released her and I think that is something dope about the really really good black. Getting these are the professional stuff. We have to compare to what we get here with. Gigantic bright close to the Sun Hawaii. Wii quite like we have harsh lighting conditions is beautiful when you get it right but you don't get it right so many blown out pictures just go checkout Hashtag Hawaiian. I G go my God. Are you excited screen. They showed the high key. new the heike key mono effect that they're going to do here this really. I thought I thought this is going to be fantastic for street or portray. TJ The other features of that like do you use the blackout like ever now. The packet doesn't work that well because you. There's trouble with hair but I'm looking at the hair on this high K. It works perfect for me really have any hair looking at uh good for me and my daughter uses. It looks freaky Yeah Yeah but they but they don't know don't tastic notably in a lot of these images. They've got hair. you know little find hair and I loved the detail image. Phil Schiller showed on stage of the close up in the eyelashes eyelashes and I think the detail is really remarkable. It looks like they have put more effort into getting the The the book okay affects a the thing about this phone is as I've been yelling about this phone. You forgot to talk about all what is that the slow freeze brother slow fakes fake. How do we feel about this now. This is a new hashtags commercial. They've ever done I again. You're talking about crying. I'm I'm being a jerk. I fully understand emotional drinks and I do feel this thing. I was being a punk but that's slow fee mom with the with the Glamour and it pulls back Turkey because that's real life stuff to be that was so funny. The mom says the blow dryer and then she just like you turn it up to do an athlete great. I'm just I'm just not looking forward to my instagram and seeing everybody posting oh I think I'm gonNA either sneeze or throw up either way. I'm going to have snow Mostofi so like Oh. No no no no no instagram. Live Boomerang are going to be nothing but slow fees. You Tech is so forgoes who don't know what a slow fee is. It is and I'm showing it on screen right now. the the SELFIE. Cam can also do slow mo now so you can do those great beauty shots with your uh-huh which means I mean that's just GonNa ruin instagram as if it were not up is also are gonNA ruin. I'm sorry to all the females who already get enough enough of the less good work for the D. picks they're. GonNa get a slow deep. Pick why wait the matinal. Why couldn't yeah what what else no eggplant pigs in Slovene guys and the first. NBA as starting is busted for it. He's is kicked out delete. I'll man. I didn't even know this was the thing okay ought to take my headphones off and just check my audio. 'cause I got like this buzzing. Sorry hope I didn't miss anything so I'll tell you that the first thing apple announced unstaged. This morning was actually the thing that got me so excited. The new frogger is here arcade plus the rumors about our plus our true the four dollars ninety nine cents a month will be available September twenty-ninth. I don't Twentieth Twentieth and of course when you pay that five dollars it's for a family of up to six people and for every apple device you have have I think this I think this is going to be good fi five bucks. I think that they were they were. They had to stay away from the net flicks price. They had to make sure that people are going to change the people are going to compare that to how much they they're going to be spending for. Netflix their ten or twelve bucks a month so long as they keep way way under that they can and sort of make sure make people forget that they are now asking do pay another five bucks a month for the rest of their lives but that five bucks is a lot of people could really justify okay five bucks for lots of cool games names that are not probably going to offend or or scar my children anyway okay. I'm all for not scarring or offending my children September nineteenth. Let me correct that the day before you get your new iphone arcade plus show my screen will show up and actually was very impressed with the variety and quality of the indies stuff. I think that my sense of it was that companies like Konami and Capcom who have many many many developers and who pretty much play in the high end triple a console arena are welcoming a chance to take some of these engines. They have to take some developers and make a simpler game them that might really give some traffic. I mean this is somewhere in between into yeah have that have a couple of characters red dead redemption. Do just the game or no wouldn't it wouldn't be a shootout game. It'd be a throw rocks at a at a tree game but still there was there was a I I'm. I'm I think I will there's. There's no doubt in my mind I will get this and keep it because there's no in-app purchases you can down and play download play off line. You could play on any need device. It's cheap really and some of the Games. They showed three games. looked really good. I thought looked really interested. FROGGER looked great. I will say that yes I did like I did like frogger. Arcade is GonNa Shine where arcade is gonNA shine because he's GonNa allow what we used to call the back catalogue rate of the people that have like frogger from user perfect concept of the back catalogue. It's the way to also bridge the gap between say like somebody like like myself. WHO GREW UP ON FROGGER. My niece is going to be new to frogger and in and knocking Kinda short things you like wait. How do you already know how to do this. You're gonNA look good when nine ten this was the uncle's good back catalogue stuff is going to be great but it also allows guys games that probably would have gotten shelf because they weren't at that level you just sorta arcade is not hurting anybody out there that that was smart and then they solve the conundrum that we've been talking about for well at least since. WW DC about what are you going to do with Apple TV plus. You only have a handful in full of titles some of them could be hits but in this very crowded space with Disney coming soon and and and all of the other subscription channels like Netflix Hulu can apple carve a hole in there. Do they have enough back catalogue. They've none do they have good enough shows none but they they did the right thing first of all the pricing which was stunning four ninety nine months already you're undercutting every other choice out there and then they said the thing that I think maybe you predicted it. The home run was a year free when you purchase any apple device apple. TV Apple ipad apple phone. I don't know if the watch counts but you know any any screen device iphone ipad apple TV. That's fantastic that means basically for people like us. You know it's going to be free forever unless they checked by stuff. You already much two thousand dollars every two years. Yes me me respect. It's all psychological free but it's I mean I I as far as I'm concerned. They need to offer something. That's fifteen ninety nine dollars. Give me everything because most of the gains my daughter plays are free Park all the she put my crafts like the only thing that we pay for like all for friends were playing together. They play roadblock. I'm not paying for ninety nine for some backyard games and and they're not paying for ninety nine or getting confusing your service. You don't have anything under if we look at. The music is where it's at. I would like to have the magazines but again. You'RE NOT GONNA. Nickel and dime me down because I gotta get Disney. I got a scam net flakes. What would you pay an apple bundled includes Arcade TV news plus and music to to be regularly Charlie Fair honestly yeah I was gonna say Seventeen Ninety nine you know would seventy-nine Paints fifteen nine for music so you gotTa have well. I'm paying nine hundred ninety me and my daughter just us off schedule because her she's using one of his own. I mean okay no no again. I that's the thing about with subscription some stuff like at some point you unbundled TV stuff to say well as money and then there's no way you're saving money anymore right because you hear paying fifteen dollars how to seven thousand nine and apple just owner own has come out and giving you six different options. That makes no sense to me. I I would not be at all surprised to hear one price. I don't think he'll be seventeen. Ninety nine dock rockies right. It's going to be twenty bucks and they did family though on. T- on TV in games aims raise yes games. I guess family out of the gate which is gorgeous now. What it needs to do is take music. You'RE NOT GONNA lose that much money. Just go ahead and make you get not only nine is also family out the gate and somewhere around the next announcement yeah the next announcement gant at you do the to have the whole. Party for twenty bucks at cigarette then everybody's everyone because spotify Kinda messing with him now because spotify include Kulu on the premium price right you know so prior to that spotify apple was a good fight. I only Kim spotify premium because of the DJ APP allows me to play whatever I wanNA play whenever I want to play it in doing this or not but yeah they have to do that. Apple TV coming November first you get one year when when you buy an iphone and ipad a Mac and Apple TV or an ipod touch so that's okay. That's pretty good I wish they would we do that with a arcade as well. That would be kind of cool. bundles bundles will come. I think yeah they gotta go because this is this really is the there's I think they back. They accept that there's no way they're gonNA charge. They're going to be able to get ten bucks. A month for four five. Six chose not a whole with either one of these as good as they are not. Everybody loved game of thrones as big as it was not. Everybody loves the DC stuff as good as it is so I'm wondering what happens a year from now when they now have. Let's say they now have a kind of something akin to a catalog now that they've got the movies that they've been buying at the at the festivals now they've got a back inventory people can binge watch these TV shows will it be. I five dollars a month forever or are they ever going to say guess. We guess what we've listened to your requests and now you can get apple arcade ends apple. TV Plus buttle altogether for only twenty dollars a month. Wait wait but put music in their sounds good if you put me with that and like I said the the Holy Trinity is all the things they offered. They things that people want but I. I'm just not GONNA pay it like I said if you if you had it for twenty bucks and I got magazines wins by arcade whatever my music you got me 'cause they're TV. Let's be honest. TV's always going to be third to fifth rate citizens as far as uncle started their TV. Shows are never going to compare to everything else. I have available to me. I mean I can go subscribe to epochs for five ninety nine and watch twins from nine hundred eighty four and every old movie and TV show. I want so I don't. I don't really think that on that level for longtime they're going to be able to compete but everything else they have is really good. You know the one unknown is if one of these shows IOS becomes a hit it becomes a game of thrones to watch it for become a hit yeah. That's true. That's why you know giving you. They're giving you a the seven day trial. It's very much hey the other thing. That's not clear maybe you maybe you noticed something. I didn't notice are they going to do the. Hbo Model where they released one a week or we're GONNA do the Netflix model where they release them all at once because I prefer the binge model but I'm not sure yeah anything bench. Model is that folks show does become hit. You get people sitting right. That's right. It's the entire series had been canceled it. They probably can't do that because they don't have enough catalog to do that. You'd think you'd I think it'd be better for them to space out since they don't have that much content if they just throw it everything you know what I mean yeah. He just started thinking up in okay. I've watched everything already. I'm done yeah you know you. You've got to get people into the habit of hitting that APP and just to see what's new so yeah. That would be a smart thing again. There's a lot of content. That's not out yet still unsuitable. They need good curator's to go. Get some of these things that are like you know sitting on the shelf in does them off and say hey whatever you you little money to let his petition our network. There's a lot of stuff that's not. I mean an absolute live. where's the golden girls there is we're so Batman go which which old Batman Bruce Wayne the one from the sixties Adam West and West Adam West and that ah again yeah because I think it'd be funny to see the disparity was very scrambling now just watch the compilations ends on Youtube of them walking up the wall. This is so funny yeah fake news junior kidding Gilligan's island. Gilligan's island was filmed across the street. I'd watch dad that again. see the problem. I think that the reason why these are hard to find on streaming is because they're much better. If you remember felt Ashley Little Kid Watch them in syndication in the seventies and eighties if you were to watch them today it's like oh wow this really was garbage. Wow even though so. I wasn't surprised to see Arcade and TV I was a little surprised to see the IPAD but it was only one model model and we know from various de Databases in Europe and the and the Middle East that there are at least two or three models in the works so so. I think it's pretty clear there is another shoe to drop. There will be another. I would expect another apple event coming in October. That will do an IPAD pro. Maybe a MAC pro. Maybe that new sixteen inch macbook pro so all they announced here was the entry level the replacement for the three hundred twenty nine dollar. I had a little bit bigger ten ten point two inch screen instead of nine point seven half an inch bigger it ship September thirtieth three twenty nine for the base model to ninety nine. If Your Education Asian it does support the original Apple Pencil still hasn't and the smart smart connector a big deal because you can use a keyboard with that so this is a good student the device I I still think this is one of the greatest products that apple has in the product line the idea of having a tablet that is this good for three hundred twenty nine bucks even non education where it has a remarkably good stylus a processors the processor which means that it's really can it really can compete with anything window space space or chromebook space. That's going for anything less than six or seven hundred dollars do you still have to deal with the concept that you don't have a track pad. You don't have a keyboard you have to add add those things but in terms of having three hundred four three hundred twenty nine bucks that's a hell of a lot of protein you get for not a whole lot of money so I'm glad to see that apple's continuing to invest vest in making this product as good as they can possibly can and again there is someone who has always been one of the first to you know throw to be the Debbie Downer about yeah yeah but apple's policy is still Gobi. Poor someplace else is great to see apple at least acknowledging that to be a really great company. They have to be able able to create products for just about everybody. They're not going to always be there. They're the people with deep. Pockets are not always GONNA be there. They have to be able to branch out to sell to all kinds of all kinds of customers customers. All over the world in a three hundred twenty nine dollars tablet of this quality is definitely up there here here. The mini price didn't go to many prices still three ninety nine right This is the the three twenty nine hundred thirty two GIG model same processor though they didn't upgrade the processor. It's still still it's the A ten's bringing up in this but is photoshop out for the IPAD pro yet. I Fono is as minecraft. VR Out Yeah I mean like the oddest cool stuff and it's coming at Christmas time or whatever and then we forget about it like I said that basketball shooting APP from the phone what happened that company that they fold did they run of money like what happened to that. At the date they show us such stuff and how many end oh that company folded. They going to add money like he doesn't have the show about putting it in. They got snowballed by whoever says they have already X. Time and I am uh not use adobe all day every day and I'm GONNA put a small gamble out that in the late October event when the the ipad pros get refreshed will seep photoshop then but we also see you know the Pru ish type stuff. Yeah you know it agree this. This device say things they say yet and we still got a probably. September twenty-ninth because that's scheduled with all other Mac. Os was released. This will get Catalina so they'll talk about that debt but I do after Greek. I feel bad for them if they put their their efforts into believing this company company who says they're going to have it ready and they don't have it ready. I don't know if you guys remember when we were trying to build glass in Arizona in apple put money into to I forget the name of the company now but the company was basically sapphires the Sapphire Glass Apple Games and so it's very possible they got ganked with the basketball a our other stuff because unfortunately that parts of their hands but it does people will will hold them to that so I wish they would at least up data's maybe but I think they're just like Oh. We're better not even bring up you know when they did something wrong in the house and the machine learning vice. I just want to know where we're actually going to use it at. I I understand it. We're a stronger better faster but I'm like what what could I do that. I mean I mean if if apparently what am I gonNa do with it you know. I think that they already sh I. It's not something where there's a feature switch on or switch off. It really is where a certain APP is enhanced in such a huge way that you can't really do it without some sort machine learning I think really the most most impressive machine learning at that apple's been associated with is simply the camera APP most of what they're talking about about there because they're talking about how they are optimized to Cebu for all this stuff the way that they're saying now with this new the magical node that we're Ki- we're experimenting with and we don't know when we're going to release it but here's a demo of a guy in a kind of a thick cable knits sweatshirt cable knit sweater short well works. We're doing pixel by Pixel by Pixel trying to figure out what should be texture which would be skin tone. What should be this. What should be which would be that so? It's it's always it's that that secret sauce is that is that extra like cup full of MSG that someone throws into the bat that makes it taste better but it's not they don't put MSG as part of the ingredients so checking the apple press release about Apple TV plus most shows will launch with three episodes some will launch with all episodes so the it's going to be a mix of that and that's again November. I Queen Yeah now. You know what three is better than one because three is just enough to get you hearts to that's right. If you just watch one not necessarily invested you know you can go back to your regularly scheduled programing but if you have three now you're in is like. Oh what does Jennifer or anything you WANNA say. It's enough to Hook you at launch most apple. TV plus series will premiere with three episodes with one new episode each week waffle seasons of some series aries will be available all at once so that's the official word from you know. They're gonNA ditch after three but it's implied that we're going to see you. Steve Croes nude right but in episode Stanford speaking to Steve Caro- Indian Steve Carell Mandel was so awesome. I just made me laugh when he came Wednesday's that guys three he looked like Steve Kerr notice. The chip card was super funny saying hey any Steve Steve Carell need a drink of water clears throat yeah. He was a little nervous one thing I will say by our TV. That has me excited is I'm. I know Jason Jason because everybody knows each other. Desa joke but I'd be just. It's just cool to see somebody that I I've known for a while. Get bigger and bigger ago. The world sees to the top stars right now in the entire planet from Hawaii Dwayne twenty rain and Jason Jason. Now We just had out the AKA tear career. She's still out here too so Harry's run into how do you run into Jason Momoa as you just like hanging out at the beach or what always goes to the base she cruises around he makes these videos on youtube him and his friends make these little clowney videos on YouTube. He's still relatively relatively normal guy. He hasn't gotten cocky and back when I used to go to the gym we always run into Wayne at the gym Nice. I wouldn't want to work out next to Twain Johnson or no no. I'm not fit to lip lift their bill aken. He puts them in place on everybody. I like to cycle yeah. That's a good one. That's a good line. Oh wait a minute my my My girlfriend is online. I gotta go I eleven and iphone eleven eleven. A PRO will be available. Sim Free and unlocked on Day. One is from nine to five Mac. That's that's really good. Sometimes the unlock phones owns come later. Almost always you get a care.

They're not tied to carry here that is that's a big change. Yeah that's yeah of course good part is now. You got the car rate so with the car.

I was thinking we'd come out with a new phones but apparently it's. It's a little bit delayed ipad. Os will also come out September thirtieth so thirteen points. Oh we'll drop with a new phone so so that's a little confusing we've had. Beta Public Betas thirteen one for a while right twelve four one today twelve four one okay so thirteen point zero on the nineteenth thirteen point one of the thirtieth right I guess no reason to wait. You can do upgrades and a couple four weeks later do the next one all right. Let's see anything else. We're let's take a break and come back and we should watch because I think maybe maybe the biggest apple watch announcement ever at least a feature that almost everybody knew they wanted an apple finally gave us but first a word heard from Epson I love my apps and eco-tank printers got to at home because I for one hate it when you're in the middle of a print job and the ink Carter Transat and you got to go to the store and everything's held up with the Epson ecotank printers they come with a ridiculous amount of enough to print thousands of pages up to two years of ink in the box and then when you go back to the store to get more ink and twenty twenty one you get two more years of ink which with each replacement bottle all set which means. I'M NOT GONNA be back. Twenty twenty three supersized easy to fill in tanks mean fewer trips to the store less frustration to you uniquely keyed auto stop ink bottles mean. You can't do it wrong. Never spill a drop. This is this is stress free. That's why they say just fill bill and chill eco-tank is changing the way people print and related to my hab- Epson because they said you know what there is a better way. We're GONNA do this for our customers. Get The compact ECO tank printer.

Epson exceed your vision. You could still buy it in Hawaii. Just don't get that for you overnight shifts. You've probably used to that right. That happens a lot. All the people say we don't ship International. What country do you say how many stars inflamed fifty. Why go we're number fifty dummy put it in the ups box to me? It's the same price to me. You're Y you're not even American and what who so Apple Watch series five and I. I almost thought you know we just got the series four last year. We really need a series five but there is a critical new feature that to me makes all the difference. I never thought thought they do it always on display Luhya yeah exactly so there's so they're saying that we I was wondering if they're going to wait until like new. Display Technology came along but they are using a new type of display as so there. It's not peo- display which means that they can do kind of like what they were doing on the phones they were they can refresh the screen dynamically some set of six at sixty hertz that can do it at like one one. One one hurts when cycle so that it's it's actually only like repainting the screen like every basically almost I never and they they also said that new display driver new ambient light sensor do also cut things down on that sort of but yeah. That's that's exactly sort of thing. I'm also glad that they they admitted one of the big reasons why people want that which is the ability to just simply sort of side. I guess when you're in a conversation with somebody and you don't want to Z. That you're talking about. You definitely are checking the time yeah exactly so I I I want to read more about how they've implemented because they said that they said at the at the actual release that it's it will support the time and any complications that are on the screen but they also mentioned that certain other apps like like the fitness APP can also be are optimized for the always on display so when you're doing workouts you could act at the the always on display. We'll be on the workouts APP. So the love love that you could bill your heart rate is I'm working out. I always have to raise my watch and then nothing happens to tap it That's a really great think I think this is actually a patent. Pending for Apple Apple has the L. P. T. O. R. L. T. P. O. Patent so don't expect this elsewhere. Although apple is not the first smartwatch to have always on display but it's good. It's not gonNA sounds like it's not gonNA impact battery life. They said the same mm-hmm Sandra Day but they now gave all day a number which I was pleased to see his eighteen hours. That's all so astronomer. FERNS ARE GONNA after figure out what planet is a day last eighteen hours. I'll give it to them well. You got to sleep some time and speaking of sleep six hours speaking asleep you won't be wearing your watch to bed just yet the rumored sleep tracking. APP did not emerge you mean absolute Ardian that APPs store well their third party APPs but there was a strong rumor. That apple is going to do it themselves. I'm now do you sleep tracking on your apple. Watch I used to when I I use it on generation one. I use on taste to it. Now it really I don't use them anymore because I'm sleeping like Iraq before when I wasn't sleeping very why I cared about it but I find that it didn't really I have sleep. Tracking on a variety of devices rings watches. There's paddles under my pillow and all it does is tell me I should be tired today day and I don't. I don't need that for me. I don't WanNa hear that I knew beauty rest and it came with this track right. That's what I I love that because I don't have to do with my phone and my watch a worried about you know whether it's proper charge of whatever and lose right. They basically email me. Every morning was like donkey. You need more sleep. It'd be tired you got. You got up to twice yeah I. I just found out I had and look. I only got forty nine out of one hundred last night. I should be exhausted because you're waiting to see me today. I couldn't wait. I was so excited quality always on his good enough to make people around by though no but it's for me that and the fact that I can now spend hundreds of dollars more on titanium or thousands of L. dollars more on a ceramic. That's fantastic news the one way to put things out though and I okay the always on loan. Would it make me run out to buy new watch but the original die is now two years old and now differences yeah you. You need a red ring years out two years. I'd get any kind of upgrade once. You're two generations out I'm talking about. I have the four there's no reason for me to go. Get file that weirdly weirdly. They discontinued the four but still sell the three. That's great of the fact that you would need the five. That's they've got in fact. They've got the three now. The price of the three is one hundred ninety nine. Bucks is one of the best announcements of Apple. Watch the that saying that that whole day because I've I've always sort. I thought that it it's sort of a disconnect. Apple is saying that look at all the people whose lives were saving at all the people getting healthier and the the the the woman who renewed go and immediately for a C. Section and the guy who knew immediately they usually go in for the stroke but we're not willing to do the for anybody who doesn't have at least five hundred dollars to spend on to watch. It's it's but the the the idea that they can get these features. These benefits to people who again are not necessarily in the market for a premium watch or premium smartwatch is great. I can't wait for them to finally decide that. Perhaps the perhaps people who use android phones are worth living there. Were there were saving lives to Maybe it's not mark good marketing to save the lives the people who don't own iphones but perhaps there is there's a justification for doing that but I keep the prices low. That's also optical illusion. 'cause the lifesaving watches the four. Three's not really saving your life like well. It's only a hundred dollars saving your life worth. Oh come on one hundred and don't be such a cheapskate. I need to have a compass and always on. I'm going to drop this watched. Watson had for nine months and five hundred dollars to go buy new okay now. You're not going to be I. I don't have many friends who can buy a brand new phone every single year or would by Brennan but for people who have a series are a series three almost series for this'll be they'll be deaf arteries five I I. There's also a reasonable case if you may there's people who haven't bought the Apple Watch yet because it didn't have an always on display. I don't think there's anybody waiting for compass but there it's conceivable that this is an and every little nudge. I think apple's really shown that they're going to make this better every year. Maybe not you know life changing better but better every year and every little nudge gets more people in the markets already the best-selling smartwatch into the market that one ninety nine is going to be that's hiller she price. I like the new apple design in-studio to in the store and online you can choose the size you want. You could choose the case you want and then once you've picked that you can choose the band you want and I most expensive watch build. It shall build the most expensive watch ramic. It's the one I'm going to get one of course. It's the beautiful sport well now. Let's not get it with a sport loop. That's if you're gonNA spend twelve hundred ninety nine bucks on watch. You know I really like I think the most expensive one is. That link band isn't it. That's a ridiculous band. No stainless steel bracelet. Wouldn't it be yeah. That's that's what we call. The stainless steel bracelet yeah poverty. It's all white that's for me. Baby fifteen ninety nine casio band right there brother always funny that this ban costs hundreds of dollars sixteen ninety nine with space plaque when it was when it was the Chanel Ceramic G. Shock. There were about two grand or the base more hens five granted. You got it with the Ceramic Bank Dan so they're they're in the right ballpark for that level of person. WHO's buying that type of say? I just I mean honestly thousand dollars for watch for a lot of people is a deal when I don't even yell about that because I'm about to watch. I have expressed watching if you're if you're if you want to spend money spending money I just meant from upgrade and if you you got the three to five I get it four to five not so much fifteen hundred watch honestly if you're the IPHONE ten are there wouldn't be a lot to say get eleven no not at all and and I think they're starting to realize that before. It was well my excuse was always you know as could occur take reiner. I had the always by the new one I decided to skip it and it didn't bother me and now you know you know. The ten Dr made me think Oh maybe I should. It's not that expensive Blah Blah Blah but then I'm glad I opted about another lens for the camera camera at this point in time. I think think I think every two years we can stick to every two years and everyone's comfortable with it. You don't feel so much fomer than yeah but the suck suck thing next year is probably going to be a guaranteed by whatever the new form factor is going to cause you to want to jump back in so you have to eat it like once every four years. I titanium. What is there so you have aluminum? You have stainless steel titanium and you have ceramic. Ceramic is an outlier. It's the most expensive and it's white which is a little weird glass different on those higher end my sapphire versus gorilla glass. Yeah what would be the case for buying a titanium. Is it just looks or is it somehow better. It's lighter too slight. Yeah although aluminum has to be pretty light. That's what I have right now. Is Aluminum going to win. I wonder about the durability of titanium if they're saying if they're saying that don't forget sakes don't we don't put your your apple cart in the same It's like scratched up is GONNA go. I don't even think of that. I like titanium watches. I've always had I've had with more traditional watches. I've always chosen titanium or ceramics. I just think those are nice materials. is watch. Is your the offend what's A. CF N C O C a Fan. I like see your fans on Amazon is right it. You do get to see a family that has the filter Bilton nothing about the Best Ronchi Leo but the best I like the It didn't take long before we started getting memes about the new camera. Look that is a by the way a massive bomb. You're going to want to get a case if you WANNA lie a flat but many people noted it looks Salat like fidget spinner. They knew fidget spinner camera. Here's a guy that grill friends shred on. It just makes us the phone on it right now. The next the next guy got me. The next guy got me. It's a talk show the horizontal don't stick a screwdriver in that whole oh man bowling ball. Maybe maybe the aliens from chicken little okay. That's a stretch. That's what I'm going to get a bunch of googly eyes stickers and put it on the back of my phone nettle scare the hell out of eight plus. A couple of Google has cost a lot less money than iphone eleven. I'll tell you that so the memes are flying fast and furious Sousse. Let's talk you you started talking about. Let's talk about the new watch health tracking stuff so there are three new research studies including hearing Heart Movement and cycle tracking although with the latest article about how some of these cycle tracking APPs send information formation not just about your cycle but about a lot of other things including your most recent sexual activity back to facebook. There might be some people thinking twice about about that well. That's that's why apple is really yes. We don't tell anybody we don't we don't we don't know this data so don't worry about it. Yeah do you guys sign up automatically the heart. We've had heart research before I sign up for it when it was available hearings interesting l. a. especially like seeing how daily sound exposure a influences you're hearing. It's a for a s that's going to be. I think think expressly good for kids because for all all of us on this panel and we're just too late we already damaged like more arguing that we realized it's when the kids realize oh by the way. Do you realize that here. Here's what you're we've pulled your favorite track your iphone. Here's what's going to sound like if you keep going think through things like what you put yourself through yesterday. Remember that will get the kids to you at that. Your kids are always wearing headphones the west this is going to pick it up the loudest places that people get like our sporting events like when they've had people's heart rates get alerted like the guy was like trying to help them in the eagles fan or like if you're if you're an industrial work environment in which case you should know that his lab should be wearing headphones anyway. There's certain places where that that could be a useful. I guess just collecting data. I think it's such a huge thing especially for especially the data that there could be collected from from women specifically because women are under represented in studies most of the science that have been built up four hundred years was based on. Let's let's remove the idea of pregnancy and a menstrual cycle because we'll only like observe men for to figure out how neurological shocking is that women are just men but with that extra stuff and and we don't have to do any medical research search on that they extra confuses the results and the same watch causing Florida Bucks Real not cheap. Oh I know I have a friend who just got one because they're trying to have a baby God. What's that is the best to watch my oh wow what was that she was like it was like three seventy five Mike. What does this do to basically track sir cycle and all that kind of stuff it tells you you know when you should try to make a big ovulating and yeah go there. Go ahead DOC. I don't know if the research apple ask these questions too but not another group of people who are underrepresented in health studies are people of color so if in their health there is a check box for ethnicity then that get you know help out those of US Melanin enhance. The has folks so you guys all do it right. I mean I think everybody would do it. Is it I mean. It's good for Apple. It's good for PR I guess it's valuable the for the for the medical community in the research community so it's a win. All I think this this really does move them. As a company it really is the the sort of thing that when they talk the talk this is them walking the walk about their responsibility to make life better for all humans everywhere and also this is really this is the Apple Watch is one of the most impressive product turnarounds I've ever seen. It went from the one of the most confused let's just build a watch and then figure it out later product launches middling for about a year year and a half but when they finally figured out that we can make something that is so that is hyper hyper hyper focused on fitness and it also has APPs Absa that will that will do other things as well notifications find but this is all going to be a health focused device that you really have to have a target to drive towards to really find that to get towards excellence and now that they figure it out that no this is a health does not this is not just a health fitness devices they health device they keep prosecuting that idea of harder harder and harder and harder with each iteration and you can see the amount of the amount of excitement that it drives for them inside. I think all right ladies I mean gentleman ladies ladies. Let's take a break unless you I'll give you one last chance anything you saw today during the event. Yes yes you said it that was not a L- accordion slip. That was actually real today. On the diversity tip apple had a bunch of ladies. Today I give her much. Kudos to that and it didn't seem like they were just doing it to get that. These people are really doing these jobs so Kudos to them for that absolutely did not look like your typical. Silicon Valley Company. It looked like a true diverse company and yeah whether that's true or not in the ranks I don't. It's a really great thing to see that state parenthetically I would add to that. I would love to see them. Make sure that the caption every time that someone who appears on the stage with their actual name mm-hmm because not everybody knows now. Let's let's bring judy up on stage to talk about this feature deep deep deep deep deep insiders know who this person is but the rest of the world who might want to know this person releasing to have a lot to say who is this person that okay give me the full name and let me check. I'm the CYNIC. My legal pot is the reason he didn't say last names as you didn't want US googling and finding out that she's the intern and know that they really I had to dig deep to find a female of color represented I don't know but I agree with you and I want to see the full name and no one titles go ahead. I'm just googling parenthetically. I'm just trying to educate and dropping bombs and stuff. I'm trying to catch up parenthetic okay. I got continue tinge of the people on except I don't think he's really a man of the people I think he just plays one on TV. I think actually Oh when you're living in a solid gold house driving your lifestyle. He's driving a May. I sounds like life of the walking dead like living walking dead. I just though some blood on myself and I walked out during that bubble blowing. That bus smelled like he's dead regular regular. Y You know what I'm saying to you. The people the people and and my people all say your people should stay where you on our show is brought to you by. He's more of a Bugatti guy. They say all all right my friend parents cynically. I say that are get your anything else any other thing. Owen anything is on stage. We didn't talk about uh no pan. No I passed on us. The DNC were so mad at me. Talk about don't buy apple first of all. I just like to talk about the things they say are not always hyped up to where I buy apple stuff. I'm addicted to apple after we went version and phone go by. I would tell you know but you like to puncture the reality distortion field whenever possible that's why we like having John. What's good is great and was the same thing like I said I got through cookies and stuff that they wanna tell me today. Eh always on screens. My can't get it on the phone. I mean this little faith but you know saw good. That's it. We're happy but I think pixel four is going to be something to watch for as as well isn't it. I mean I believe in. I believe the Pixel Camera I would again. How WanNa see what this night site looks like a night mode descartes night mode looks like like on the iphone. because night-sight is amazing. The camera on the Pixel is just phenomenal top to bottom radio not so much but the camera is phenomenal. We have cheaper version. Mike we've already decided amp pruitt is going to be It's going to be an Leo at CAS this year. We're going to do it completely guerrilla-style with phone. We haven't decided yet if it's going to be the pixel four or the iphone. Eleven Max Pro Max Pro Oh record nineteen people in the Levin promex eleven seventy seven figure. I figure it out but it we're GONNA do extensive testing before January and then whatever ever that is. That's what we're going to carry them. We're going to go around and shoot. CAS Booth by booth little short segments and we're GONNA do one of those devices. I have a feeling right now. It's going to be the iphone but we have to see what the Pixel has next month. let's take a break and then if you want some picks of the week but first a word from last asked password big last past fans here as you know. I've been a last past user for well. Since since I came out I think ten years we we've got Josie grist the guy who created it to talk with Steve Gibson our security guru. Steve GotTa look at the source code how it's done and he gave it his absolute seal of approval fact. Steve Start using last pass at that point. there was a a kind of a a critical moment in twits history when one of our engineers here's put all of his passwords online in a public website when we realized you know we better use last pass at work too.

Let's get some picks of the week now doc rock. I don't know if you are prepared pared. If there's anything you'd like topic always prepared. What would you what are you? What are you harder for these days so I've been sitting on this until hill. We knew exactly what's going to happen with the phone but now I know what's going to happen when the phone I'm ready for this. I want to talk about the OSMO mobile three. This is the latest rendition of the gamble. I'm going to pub- Lincoln chatty. Love are all the we love. It is fantastic. I had the one and then I played with the two and then I went to drones and I got my Osmo pocket which also love but knowing that this phone is going to have this incredible video support report the whole thing about the three and I'm going to Kaido next month. I'll get tested on right away. I love the fact that folds so small mall and it's it has like these really cool. sort of built in cinema robotic moves for people who don't know how to do this stuff like what special transitions positions and stuff that folks like me like the US you have built in sort of a camera moves. You know what I mean like you can do the motion labs to hyper labs the way that it in order to take picture. It does a little barrel rolls like you're looking at right now nice. you know what I mean. That's you don't have to. I don't I don't WanNa do it because I spent years speaking out but now regular folks can do this and I have literally watch the way people's video game have up you know leveled pulled out since people started using these little phone gambles and the EPA part about this is as one nineteen. If you just want to basic fellow there is a bundle llandough that gets you a little extra. COUTRYMAN dislike one thirty nine but it's not even a pocketbook breaker. That's a really nice well a lot less than in the last one yeah right the original one. I think I started out at two forty yeah and it's gone down since but men would have an amazing device incredible battery life a love the actor track feature so like you sit down and as I go like this in like such the cows as with you you know stuff like that is going to be great great so there's no reason to have you know ten thousand dollars vacation with crappy footage. MAS would get yourself. Osmo pocket slap on your the new iphone iphone pro or you know Pro Max or Pixel whatever you got a really really good footage now really cool could pick. Somebody has my asthma mobile. I wonder Ooh I got. I got a video to send cars. Oh good you did the review good. I did review on sale now. All the all the all the accessories are out and it's sad because is going to sound like a horrible horrible. Dj Moment but I was going to buy the Degi Ronin SC yeah and then they were having adding problems with the iphone because the field of view on the camera wasn't as wide as Samsung's now this new lens the setup with the Ronin in an agile uses your phone as the active track on your DSL or murless camera so you can set it up where it syncs with your camera so now when I use my wide angle lenses the phone will actually be able to keep up with my with my murless camera so I'm GonNa. Order the road and seeing today. How much is that though that's going to set four thirty nine and I've already got the bigger one. You'RE NOT GONNA get emotional for five twenty nine five thirty nine. Come on on okay. The difference with that one is is I personally am not skilled enough to roll my focuses. That's what that does. It gives you the focus ring. That's that's what comes with the pro version versus everything else that same but the focus ring. I'm not skilled enough to even use it. I have a Ronin. 'em And I never used the focusing on that so I'm not going to waste the money on this and I'm trying to downscale because I'm not as strong as I wanNA be a mother. I look at the rock but I ain't Iraq so the SEC is lighter and with the camera is with the actor track. I could set it up and use it like I use the asthma pocket now instead of just be role. I could use it with my cannon are USR. I'm super excited because he's view at the IFA was smaller so when I use a wide angle lens apparently people were saying the act of track wouldn't sink with the IPHONE. I phoned you'd have to use a Samsung but now I can get an iphone and it'll work so just to for people wondering what are all these things. They're what we call Kimble's. They're motion stabilisers. You just hold them and they automatically stabilize the motion on your phone or your camera. The the odds Moser for a camera phones in the Russians are actually probably more Maryland the sound there is big enough for murless. Okay Yeah and you're GONNA get running. You don't have to get the extra one. I'm with the Mo the focusing our new. Sony camera focuses faster anything in the world so we don't need that.

I'm going to have a cousin aunt teach you how to fly in fly or he's GonNa. He's GonNa take you out step by step week by week. Did you WANNA start a little ninety nine dollar one. We're going to get you back to fly aircraft thought I was. I was with a drone father Father Robert Palace there who is the king and he trained me apparently not good enough. I dunk start over this time all right dumb it down. That's it break it down. Start over build it up from scratch. Grach Andy and not go pick the week. Oh Andy's muted Andy Un mute press the magic twitter or go. Japan very very quick got a I found a a music player last week. that is focused on albums has the worst title ever because if you look for it you will never find it. It's called albums album focused player by Adam lender. it's really really simple player all it but the feature feature that it has that has been playing with it and liking it is that it really is focused on playing whole albums one of one of the limitations. I think of almost every single Google player that I've ever seen is that what if you like to listen to whole albums from start to finish K it lets you shuffle albums that you play albums like as entire units without having to specify by no no no please don't just add this to playlist and then start going it will also automatically pulled down all the album info from discards so if you've got so if you want to know like production info without having to like hit wikipedia l just pull all that stuff down it's three bucks but it's it's definitely an independent ended production and I really want a at like for again. Listening to my my collection as whole albums we worked with apple music as well with your own your own audio files putting in there I hope that he continues to work on it and continues to improve it because that is one of the areas that I don't think that any music as a player right now does a really good job with again. It's all one of the biggest frustrations about I tunes and one of the reasons why I sort of moved away from it is that it doesn't understand and then if I put like if I've got one track from a certain album because I just liked that one song I really don't need to have that listed amongst like all the albums that I have allow me to allow me to look at my collection as here's a collection of complete albums we get track one to track eleven not the ones that has only the three favorite songs songs from from Abbey Road Gimme. Don't let me exit accidentally play that let's play the entire album as it is and so this is. I hope attention being being paid to people who want to listen to track track eleven side a side B. Here's a question that would put by the way to ninety nine. I'M GONNA buy no matter what but it would be really cool. If I could play dark side of the moon exactly you know without the gap but exactly as it's not overlapping either cross fades not what I want I want it exactly as it sounds on the on the body I think for the ultimate experience it would have to use the location to figure. Are you in a state where you can buy the substances that you need and also to time. It's now. I don't take anymore. Okay another hit right now right now right now or we're going to start the wizard of Oz. That would be the other. Does it play a gap. can like assembling the album as as ooh has A. I have not tried. I'M GONNA buy it anyway because I mean this is clearly the the right thing to do. This is a great idea. Yeah exactly this is why I have to. I've separate music players. I've won music player. That's really for streaming services and then another self contained music player just for my entire collection of albums because it's so confusing in so disappointing to it otherwise one thing that I really wish that I tunes would would do better because it doesn't do it at all right now. Dollars Ninety nine cents Adam Linder. Maybe if you searched for Adam Linder you'd be more likely that's fine. Thank God thank God that I bookmark. The actual linked to the to the store in my notes at because I was spending five minutes while we were in the car. I was spending all the time we're commercials. No no not photo albums. No not musicale Cowan's that have tracks like please at least like make it like a l F Z or something. Just you got a you got a one thousand nine hundred ninety s the these names up. If you want people people to find them once we didn't we didn't talk about but the New York Times did an expose on the APP store search last yesterday that showed how at least in the past apple really put put all of its apps no matter what you searched for at the top of the search apple said we're not. GonNa do that anymore so but it was really interesting yeah good for them. they showed in this first example on the on the article online. If you search for podcast you'd find pretty much every apple APP not just their pike has but every apple L. APP and then start showing you other companies podcast APPS compass what why that has nothing to do with podcasts tips the watch APP and then in finally you get podcasts in the others so that that that clearly had to be fixed and I think apple did announce that they were Gonna fix that after the at least at least when apple has a scandal so it's one of these gentle scandals really. Oh wasn't that naughty of them no supposed to. Why isn't there a law preventing this yeah. What's the class action suit guess following following that article in the Wall Street Journal apple found the APP store was decided to show a lot of apple APPS for common search terms so you know what do you know so Phil Schiller and Eddy Cue at told the times we're going to adjust the APP store algorithm to handicap our APPs from appearing too much in search results. It was just an accident. These things happen Ladies and gentlemen thank you for being here and I really want to spend a little time. Thanking Doc Rock for joining us is from Hawaii.

14. #75HARD: A Tactical Guide To Winning The War With Yourself

"The ongoing project spoken only way. One Eighty two fifty. What's up guys for seller and this is the show for the real goodbye to the lies the fakeness and delusions of modern society. And welcome to MOTHERF reality guys today. I've got a very special episode for you. As many of you know I have a program that talk about called seventy five hard and what I wanted to do was to make a very organized concise overview of this for you all because the original episode from two thousand in Nineteen in March on the NFC. Oh project feed is kind of all over the place so I wanted to reorganize this so that you guys will have a better understanding of what to do why to do it. And what the Program. Basically we'll do for you and all of those things so if you're interested in seventy five hard and you've heard about it and you've seen the hash tags at the time of this recording were sitting like a hundred and twenty five thousand hashtags organically. It's gaining momentum and a lot of steam in the reason it is is because it works. This isn't something that we advertise that put an advertising budget behind. It's just spread through word of mouth and so to have something spread organically like that. It's very effective and so what I wanted to do. I wanted to just create this for you guys to make it easy for you to understand what the program is why you should consider doing it. And what you can expect through the program so as you guys know people waste tons and tons and tons of time and energy and money on courses that teach you how to get healthy how to succeed in business how to have better relationships how to do everything that there is out there. We never lived in a time where there's more courses on things to do. And the reason these courses don't work and never work is because most people lack the willpower and the discipline to actually put these things into play. And I want you to think about something for a minute. What would it be worth to you? If you could learn to create within yourself the skills of discipline self worth fortitude grit self control self esteem and confidence all of these things come together to create what is generally called mental toughness and most of us me included lack that at certain points in our life. The first thing you have to understand about mental toughness is that it's a perishable skill. It's something that you have to practice consistently for it to be at a high level. A lot of people don't understand this. A lot of people can't understand why they don't have confidence why they don't have self esteem why they don't feel good about themselves. Why is it that so many other people have all of these things and seemed to have it all figured out? But we don't. I wondered this my whole life. I can remember going places in wondering what makes that person so special. What makes that person stand out? Why does that person continue to win? All her over and over again. You guys all know what I'm talking about. You're sitting in a place a meeting a restaurant at work and this person walks through the door and everybody stops and looks at them because they have something about them. This is what I'm talking about that thing that thing that they have that we don't have and we're trying to figure out why we don't have it. This is what I'm talking about when I talk about mental toughness. How many times have you started something only to get through it for a week? Two weeks three weeks and then fall off and then go back right where you were see. I struggle with my weight. My whole life. I've also struggled with confidence my whole life. I was never a cool person. I was never cool. I wasn't the captain of my sports teams. There's a lot of people think a lot of people think now. Like oh dude. I bet he was a leader. No I wasn't. I wasn't a leader. I was just a kid trying to figure it out just like everybody else and this all of the things that I'm talking about that I'm going to go through in this. Podcast are how I develop these skills. Which is what they are. Okay these things that I talk about discipline self-worth fortitude grit self control self esteem confidence. These are all things that you possess inside of you that you just haven't built yet okay. It's like a seed right if you have a seed in the ground the seeds there you can't now that it's not there but unless you water and unless you take care of it it's not going to grow similar to muscle in the gym you. All of us have muscles. All of us doesn't matter how big or how small how old or how young we all have muscles but certain people have bigger muscles. Why do they have bigger muscles while the reason that those people have bigger muscles because they train those muscles consistently and then put the proper fuel into their body so that those muscles can recover and grow and become stronger mental? Toughness Confidence Grit all of these things. I'm talking about that actually. Create all the great things in life including finances fitness. Your relationships everything. Your success in every area of life comes down to these skills. Why aren't we training them? How do we train them see? That's something that I figured out a long time ago. How come we don't have a program to build all these things like. We have to build our bodies. Well that's what we're talking about today. We're talking about how you can go out and fix your brain to a point. Where all of these other programs that you want to buy and learn how to do. We'll now actually take care of themselves because you have the ability to execute consistently right. That's what we're talking about. And when you think about that. What would that be worth to you have? What would it be worth to you for you to know for sure that when you said you were going to do something you actually follow through? What was your life? Look like if that were the case. How different would your career be? How different would you relationship? E- How different would your body if you actually knew that if you said you're going to do something you actually did it. How much better would you feel about yourself if you look at your self in the mirror every single day and say dude? I'm proud of you. I'm happy I'm glad I'm you think about that. What is that worth well? The good news is I'm GONNA give it to you for free in this podcast. So you don't pay anything so before we really get into the nuts and bolts of this. I want you to know what seventy five is all about. This is not a trendy fitness challenge. A lot of people think this is a fitness challenger. Some sort of instagram challenge or some sort of fun. This is not that this is a program that has been created to develop mental toughness and it has developed mental toughness in tens of thousands of people who completed it. In fact. If you complete it exactly as I go through and I'm about to go through in this podcast I guarantee you. After seventy five days you will look back and say this is the greatest thing I ever did. Now if you try it quote unquote try it and you come out twenty one days in or forty two days in or sixty days in. I'm GonNa tell you right. Now you're going to be pissed at yourself and it's probably GonNa make you feel pretty crappy and it's probably going to make you feel pretty down but knowing going in if you complete it and you come out the other side what you're going to gain. I promise you it's going to be the best thing you ever did. Okay so before I get into the nuts and bolts of this. You're probably wondering who am I? And why should you listen to me? Well because I don't want to take a whole bunch of time talking about myself and what I've done. You could just go to my website. Andy Dot Com. Click on the about me in the bio. And it'll tell you all about who I am and what I've done in life so far but the important thing is this. I've always been interested in mental toughness because I never had it. Okay and I've been studying mental toughness for twenty plus years. I've developed the skills of mental toughness in my business and in my life that have allowed me to create an amazing life. There's really no other way to say it. But the reason I launched this program the seventy five heart program last year is because a certain piece of this puzzle fell in place for me. I always wondered why it was and how we went about learning how to be mentally tough. I always wondered why there wasn't a book or a course or something out there. That actually could help us do this. Yes there's a lot of theories. Yes there's a lot of words to read out there no there hasn't from my knowledge been anything out there that's been created to help cultivate the skill and all my podcast the NFC. Oh project which is a podcast. I did from two thousand fifteen to two thousand nineteen. It was a number one business podcast in the world and I was fortunate enough to be able to interview some amazing guests. One of these guests was James Lawrence. Okay otherwise known as the Iron Cowboy. The reason he's known as the Iron Cowboy is because he did fifty iron man's in fifty consecutive days and fifty consecutive states. Okay this man did something amazing and I doubt that it will ever be replicated in the history of humanity and if it is crops to that person because this is tough right after three days he lost all of his toenails off of his feet so he had forty seven more iron man's to go. We're no toenails. All right so this is tough and he knows what it takes to be mentally tough and while we were talking and while we were doing a show he said something that made everything clicked for me. He said you have to intentionally put yourself in places that are uncomfortable and I never thought about it like that. I knew subconsciously what that was but I never heard it said like that everything. Kinda just fell into place as soon as I heard that. If you go listen to the podcast when he says it you can hear that. I'm like well all right. It clicked and I got fired up immediately man. I went home. I started thinking about House. GonNa put this program together and literally by the next day. I had this program put together and it was called seventy five heart. I decided on seventy five days because I knew it's going to take a lot longer than the twenty one days. Everybody says to form a real habit. We've all heard it before if you do something for twenty one days. It's going to be a habit while we also all know that. That's not true because we all done stuff for twenty one days and it didn't stick and so at the time. I had a bet going on with an entrepreneur group that I run called Artists Syndicate that. I had a bet with the group that I would get to ten percent body fat or I would have to pay two hundred and fifty thousand dollars all right. So that's where the seventy five days came from because it happened to be seventy five days to my dad line. I knew that was much longer than the twenty one days and I had a pretty good idea that these things would stick and you know what it turns out that I was right and the reason I can. No I was right is because there's been fifty sixty thousand people have completed this program and if you go search the seventy five heart Hashtag. They'll tell you what it's done for him. It's done things that nothing else ever has all right so I thought through the requirements very very well of the program and all the things I learned over the last twenty years basically. I put together in this program so that I could help you guys understand. What kind of structure it has been for me to create the mentality to go out and live the life that I truly desire which I do every day by the way. Okay so I'm going to go through a bunch of things here and you're probably GonNa want to take notes if you've never listen to this before first thing is this a right seventy-five hard requires absolutely zero deviation zero compromise. You can't tweak the program to your liking. This is the first thing that everybody tries to do. When they look at the program they look at it and they say wow that's that's going to be inconvenient. Wa. Let's show. Yeah it's supposed to be inconvenient and it's supposed to be hard you can't tailor it to your situation. The reason for that is that you have to understand in life. Conditions are never going to be perfect. You're always gonNA have to do things that you don't want to do. And the minute you start tweaking or compromising. That's what opens the door to quitting. Okay so you have to commit to the program one hundred percent and you have to do the requirements of the program to the letter no matter what before you go to sleep for that day if you compromise on anything if you do one of the workouts is supposed to be forty five minutes and it's forty two minutes you have to start over from day one if you miss something. Simple like you read nine pages instead of ten pages. You've got to start over day one. If you missed one out short of the Gallon of water that it's asking you to drink you have to start over from day. One and there are no exceptions for this. It doesn't matter how many kids you have. It doesn't matter busy you are. It doesn't matter what your current role in life is. It doesn't matter. There are people who have completed this program. That have those same challenges. Lots of them. We've had people who are eight and nine months pregnant finished the program two or three days before they gave birth. Now I'm not recommending do but that's a fat. I've had people do that. I've had people who literally have no legs and one arm complete this program. Okay I've had people that run seven six multiple huge companies like myself complete this program. The minute I go through all these things. You're going to have all these excuses. Come into your head and you're saying this is why I can't do it. That's normal. You need to squash that voice in your head. You're going to learn real quick. I call that the bish voice. Okay the voice is the voice who talks you out of doing every single thing. You know you're supposed to do they tell you all the things you know exactly what you need to hear to not do it. And it's what costs you every single thing that you truly want in life. It's your bitch voice so as I go through this and you start to think of objections I want you to understand. Lots of other people have done this and lots of other people have finished it the right way now. There is some people because this is on the honor system who have skated their way through and not done the things that they're supposed to do. And then at the end they try to celebrate and be a part of the group. And I'm going to warn you upfront. The people who finish it the right way can always tell who those people are. Okay if you follow the program exactly as laid out you will be a completely different person. You will look different. You will talk different. You will speak different. You will fucking think different. Okay you are going to be a different human completely if you pretend you will get none of those benefits. That's something you have to know up front and I would recommend this the more times. You have a quote. Unquote Hiccup through the program and you quit the easier. It is to quit and the less likely you are to actually finish the program so I would highly highly recommend that you know going in that if you start this program you absolutely have to finish it no exceptions and if you fail and have to start over your chances of seeing it all the way through go down know that upfront. The first time matters. And if you fail it it's GONNA hurt bad. I understand this moving forward now what I want to do now is I wanna go through the five critical parts of seventy five hard okay. I'M GONNA go through them in general and maybe a little bit of detail and if you WANNA know more more more I have the websites seventy five hard dot com and also I have a book coming out real soon that you will be able to pick up. That's just called seventy five hard and it details all of these things out in depth and actually includes what I did the first time I went through the program how I accomplish it and some of the you know the frequently asked questions and all that tells you the whole story so this will be an overview all right. So what I'm going to do now is. I'm going to go through the five critical Tasse seventy-five hard now before I go through. I want to stress extremely part. Okay that your integrity in this program is everything. There is no system that checks up on you. There is no coach. That checks up on you. There is no anything that checks up on you. And that's by design the reason there's nobody to check up on you is because we're teaching you how to coach yourself if you know how to coach yourself and you know how to be disciplined in yourself and you create these skills in yourself. You will not need other people to remind you so. This is going to be work for a lot of you guys to do this. You have to have integrity. You might lose some weight. You might look better but mentally you are not going to get what this program provides when you adhere to it one hundred percent. I promise you okay. There's Magic to this but it has to be done completely with integrity. If you fail start over and see it all the way through lots of people do have to start over and see it all the way through. I've got people who have failed. Four five six seven eight times and made it through. Okay those people are completely transformed and you can ask any of them if they got something out of the program when they failed versus when they completed it. And you can figure out what it does all right. So here are the five critical tasks of seventy-five hard the first one. Is this. Choose a diet and commit to it? I'm not going to tell you what Diet you should do. There is no specified diet. You need to choose the Diet according to your goals meaning if you want to lose weight and get leaner and get in. Get in better shape that way. Then choose a diet and commit to it that entire time for that goal if you want to gain muscle and you want to get leaner that way. Same thing all the way through all right. Here's the thing. Certain Diets like counting crows. Allow for people to eat junk and stat calories. That is not the point. You are missing the point of what this program is about. If you're going to do a calorie counting macro based diet the food needs to be clean all the way through no trying to wait all day and then eat pancakes. The end of the day our snacks. This is about building mental discipline. Okay and here's the thing about the first requirement. No cheap meals lots of people bucket this and they say well how do I go seventy five days without cheating? Well lots of people have done it. I did it twice last year and it was the best thing I ever did. And I'm GonNa tell you right now. The first six days and seven days or the hardest because most of you have never gone more than a week without taking cheat meal. That's the truth. Okay so this is going to be something different for you. And it's going to be difficult. This is not called seventy-five easy but remember what you're going to get out of the program all right so choose the Diet. According to your goals it's okay to get a trainer or a consultant to help you with your diet. Hundred percent recommend that there's lots and lots of great professionals out there that can help you with this thing and you have to stick with it and also no junk none none whatsoever not one by one chocolate chip in your macro Diet. You start over okay. And here's the other thing that you need to know. That goes along with point one and no cheap meals that means no alcohol either not a drop not a beer or wine out of glass when you get home. Nothing for at least seventy five days. Okay this part of following a diet that is going to improve your physical self. You need to eliminate alcohol and I know a lot of you guys are sitting there saying. Oh Dude GonNa make it through no alcohol. Trust me can do it all right. There's a number of reasons for this empty calories okay. Psychological addiction physical addiction alright. Also by the way we're talking about detoxing your body and mind for seventy five days a lot of guys drink rarely and by the way I used to be one of these people so I know you don't understand how foggy you are because of this lifestyle. I used to be the guy who went out on Thursday Friday Saturday nights and then day drank on Sundays and I was runnin companies like that and I could tell you right now when I eliminated after my life by the way I still enjoy a drink. I'm not some anti alcohol zealot. I still like to have some beers with my friends or a glass of wine. Or some- whatever's around. Actually it's whatever's free all right. Let's be honest but this program does not allow for that so zero alcohol for seventy five days. So that's the first requirement. Choose a diet that is going to be aligned with your personal goals of your body and stick to it. This is not choose a diet like saying. Oh well he fast food the whole time. That's diet that's not what I mean. I mean a diet that is going to improve your physical health point number to drink one gallon of water every day. Everybody knows there's all sorts of health benefits to being properly hydrated and drinking a gallon of water. It sounds pretty easy. Lack of people recommend it. It's a lot harder than that. You're going to have to make sure that you start early and be consistent throughout the day. You're increase physical activity that we're going to get to in a minute require more water. You're going to have to be disciplined to drink more water throughout the day. So that you're not chugging a gallon of water right before you go to bed. Which by the way I had to do a few times the first time I went through because I was undisciplined about doing throughout the day. All right so you have to drink a gallon of water every day point number three. You have to commit to two forty five minute. Workouts and one of them has to be outdoors. They cannot be consecutive. You cannot go from one workout indoors to the workout outdoors. That is not what this program is about. They are separated. The reason they are separated is because it's supposed to be inconvenient. You're supposed to make a harder the reason you're supposed to make it harder is because you're trying to develop and are developing these certain mental skills. So you have to Ridge your mind of the idea of making everything easier for yourself which we as. Humans have a tendency to do and I think if you're honest with yourself right now you will tell yourself the truth that one of the main reasons that you're not where you want to be in life is because you try and change everything to sue you. Unfortunately the world doesn't work that way and this is a big problem for a lot of people. A lot of people think they can throw a fit or be stubborn or be mad or say. This doesn't make sense and they get to get out of stuff and you know what that's how the world works now if you. WanNa win so you have to do to forty five minute workouts and again you have to decide what these workouts are going to be according to your goals. I don't care what you do in fact maybe you should hire a trainer or a coach to help you do your workouts. If you're a beginner if you're not a beginner you know. Do what you gotta do. Most of the time I lift weights and one workout and then I do outdoor walk run blend on outdoor workout. Okay so those are two separate workouts. Now you will have to do workouts in climate weather you will have to do workouts and thunderstorms you will have to do workouts in snow you will have to do workouts when it's hot you will have to do workouts when it's cold. This is the point of the program. Conditions are never perfect and one of the reasons that most people can't get through life in an effective way is because the minute that conditions are off. They throw the towel in on their plan. Forty five minutes outside no matter what sometimes you have to drag a piece of equipment out in your driveway and do it at one o'clock in the morning. I did that a number of times. Sometimes the day might be perfect and it might be not no problem. I love those days too. But what you're going to see. Is that as you go through the program. You start to develop these skills of mental toughness is. You're going to start to crave the climate weather. Because you know that it's a test you know that it's something you need to overcome and you're GonNa take pride in this because you know that nobody else is doing it. There's something extremely empowering about going out on your local running trail or you're walking trail when it's raining outside and there's nobody there and you know that you're the only person that's out there paying the price that will help build you okay. This is what champions are made of. This is what greatness consists of. It's doing things that you know you're supposed to do when you don't want to do them. And when nobody else is doing either. This is a huge part of it. So don't skip this. Don't cheat it. Don't buck at it. I promise you you're going to end up loving it and my little. Astra to that whole thing is obviously. There's scenarios where you're not going to want to go outside. It could be lightning. It could be a hurricane. It could be tornado warning. I am not telling you to do this by the way. This is your choice. Be Smart Use your brain. Do what you know is right. But don't sheet the program you'll find a way to get it done. That's the truth. I live here Missouri. Sometimes we got tornadoes. Sometimes we have a foot of snow other times. It's a hundred and ten degrees outside and guess what I've done outdoor cardio and all those scenarios all of them all right and by the way it doesn't have to be cardio outside you do weights outside you could do cross fit. You can do jumping jacks. You could do jump rope. You could do bands you can do airway squats. I am not telling you have to go do what I do. I'm saying you have to do a workout outside all right so two workouts and both can be outside by the way if you WanNa do in both side that's cool. One of them has to be all right. So that's point number. Three two workouts forty five minutes minimum each one outside point four. Read ten pages of a non fiction book every day. This is not entertainment time. This is not Harry Potter time. This is learn new stuff time. Okay so the book has to be a self development book of some sort for personal or professional. Growth does not have to be a business book. Could be a psychology book. It does not have to be a book on banking could be a book on how to do something else. Put the point. Is You have to learn some new stuff a right standard format not audio books. Not Digital Books not books with five words on each page. Not Coloring books. All of these things people try to skate out on and they try to like get around. The reason has to be a real book. There's actually a lot of reasons which I will address in the book. Seventy-five hard but the main reason that has to be a real book is because there's a sense of accomplishment that you can see as you move through the book okay when you go through the book and you hold the book up sideways and you see how far you are through it like we all do. You're going to start to feel a sense of confidence as you do this. You're going to start to feel like yeah actually. I'm doing what I should do. And what you're GONNA START TO NOTICE. On a micro level on a day by day level is that you're getting stronger every single day. At first I'm going to tell you this is going to be really really hard and then it's going to get easy and then it's going to get real hard and then you're going to be done. Okay then the habits are in you. I'm GonNa tell you right now. The reading part is a big deal for a lot of people for me. This isn't a big deal because I've been reading my entire life ten pages a day for sixteen years now in business right. I've read lots and lots and lots of books. That's a normal habit for me. And by the way some of these things are going to be habit for a lot of you. I know a lot of you in the fitness industry are GonNa say I do these things because I trained for this event or that you ha- you might have trained for twenty weeks for an event a bodybuilding show fitness competition. This that you did not do all of these things for that time. So don't if you're looking at it and you're thinking man this is looks like pretty easy. Okay we'll do it and then tell me how easy it was. That's all I have to say all right because this program gets a lot of criticism from the quote unquote professionals out there. Because they don't understand. This is a mental toughness program. It is not a fitness challenge. If you want to lose weight and that's your only goal. There are plenty of other programs that you can accomplish. Losing weight on that will be easier. This is not that this is a program that will help you end the problem. That is keeping you where you are in life. Which is where you don't want to be or you wouldn't be listening to this. Let's be completely honest all right. This is a program that will help. You develop the skills that you need so that you can move forward and any area of life at your own will think about that. This is not Jenny Craig. This is not weightwatchers. This is not some sort of healthy baby step program on how to do things right now we live in a society where everybody wants to pacify everybody else and everybody wants to help everybody else be successful in the way they do. It is by referencing. These old studies and these old psychology thoughts that it's baby steps to everything and you know what maybe that works for some people but for me never worked for lots of other people. It seems to never work. Otherwise they wouldn't costly be looking for the next thing. This is not the next thing. This is the thing that's going to fix it. So when you think about this and you go show your friends and they say well. That seems like it's over her. That seems like it's going to be very inconvenient. Yes it is. That's the point. This is not for people that want to be like everyone else. This is for people that want to win. This is for people that want to dominate. This is for people who want to develop their own superpower that every single other person is never going to have. That's what this is so let's not get confused. So let's review real quick. We have a diet. We have a gallon of water. We have two workouts one indoors. One outdoors forty five minutes both can be outdoors. They cannot be consecutive. We have read ten pages of a nonfiction book a day and the last one and this is very very important and is often overlooked. I'm GonNa tell you right now. A lot of people fail this because of this and they think that it's not important point number five. Take a progress picture every day. This is not just to show your physical transformation although it is also to show your physical transformation. Because I'm going tell you what on day one you're gonNA look one way and on day fourteen. You're going to look better and on day. Twenty one year a little better and on day. Forty two you're GONNA look than that. By the time you're done you're going to be able to look back and create a little slide show and say. Dang look at this transformation. I did a good job. Okay that's one point but there's another point the other point here is that you probably hear this and you think it's going to be easy and because of that you're going to miss it and this is the reason that a lot of you fail. A lot of you are really good at paying attention to the small details and I'm talking about anything in life. A lot of you are really good at paying attention to small details when you're at Ground Zero but once you start getting surprise us in a certain area whether it be your fitness or your business or anywhere else you start to forget the little details as you go and those little forgotten details or what ends up costing you the growth that you're making right now you'll get better. You'll get better. You'll get better start to forget what you did in the beginning to get better than all of a sudden things star turn around and you start going down and you start looking around and wonder why you're going down. Why am I struggling now? I was doing so well. Why is everything seemed to be falling on me? Why is the sky? Falling the sky's falling nap. Because God hates you because you are not doing the small details that you were doing in the beginning so understand that. This part of the program is a huge deal. Huge deal also realize these photos do not have to be posted online solid highly. Recommend that you take a photo that shows your body where closed a show your progress for men. This would be shorts. No shirt for women this would be. You know a sports bra and shorts are something that you because this is for you. You do not have to share this with anybody. This is for you but I'm going to promise you that. If you stick with this at the end of the seventy five days you are going to wish that you took the progress pick with your shirt off or your ability to see your body a lot of people. Because they're embarrassed. I understand. I used to be three hundred and fifty pounds. You'll find that out okay. I'm not some fit guy that was born this way of struggle with my weight my whole life. I know what it's like to be embarrassed of your body. It's still worse thing ever. I know what it's like to go to the clothing store nothing fit. I know what it's like to be embarrassed to go to the pool. I know what it's like to not go to shit because none of your clothes fit. I know what it's like to have to wear the same outfit every Single Day. Because nothing fits. I know because I lived it but trust me when I tell you. I don't care how big you are. How out of shape your how embarrassed you are. Take these pictures so you can see your body because at the end you're GONNA WANNA say. Wow do you look good? I did and it's going to help the program work for you. Okay and I have to give you the disclaimer. Because our attorneys. Tell me that I have to do this. So here it is. You should consult your physician or other healthcare professional before starting seventy five heart or any other fitness program to determine if it's right for your needs do not star seventy five hard if you're a physician or healthcare provider advises against it. Now I since I know most of you are not going to ask your doctor. I also would like to add this use commonsense. Don't get yourself out in the middle of a thunderstorm when there's lightning coming down don't get yourself out there in the middle of a flood be smart foul program but use commonsense and be able to identify if you are actually using common sense or if your bitch voice is actually talking you out of something. Because I'm going to tell you. We have very climate weather here in the Midwest. I'm in Saint Louis Missouri and there I've done seventy five hard twice. I'm in the middle of doing it my third time. I've done all the phases which I'll talk about in a different podcast because there's actually pays one two and three after this. Don't pay attention to that until you're done with seventy five hard and I've never had a situation where I wasn't able to get it done right. No excuses but be smart commonsense. Ask Your doctor and all that good stuff with any of these five task whether it be the Diet whether it be the gallon of water whether it be the two workouts whether it be the read ten pages whether it be take progress pick every day if you miss any of it I mean just part of any of it you have to start over at day one. Okay so let this program do its work commit to it and see it through and I promise you in seventy five days which is such a short time to gain what this program will give you. You will feel like a different person and all the right ways guys. I know you're probably listening to this. Some of you at least and you're fired up. You said Dude I got this good but there's also some of you people that are thinking right now man. This seems really hard understand. This program is scalable. It doesn't matter how big you are or how shape you are or how whatever you are you can do this program in some way whatever reason it is right now that you're telling yourself you can't is exactly why you need this program. It's exactly why you must do this program because you don't believe in yourself and I promise you at the end of this. It will be the best thing you ever did. Most people see this as another fitness program. This is not that I can't say that enough. This is the equivalent of an Ironman of climbing Mount Everest. Whatever it is that you see all these other people doing it there. So proud of this is the equivalent of that for your brain. That's what this is.

And this is the show where I help you tackle the challenges that life and people throw at you. I want to help you increase your emotional intelligence, strengthen yourself worth and self esteem and empower you so that you can make decisions that are right for you everything. I talk about on this show is my personal opinion and has meant for information on educational purposes, only, always consult, a, medical or psychological. Always insult a medical or psychological professional before making any changes that could affect your physical or mental health. Okay. I made it almost through that. And I'm glad we're here today. I'm glad you're here today. Thank you for joining me. And I would like to talk about family drama. I received an Email a while back that talks about family drama, and how it affects you. I'm sure that you've experienced some sort of family drama along the way my ears are ringing now as you are screaming at your podcast player that yes, of course, Paul I've experienced family drama. That's why I listen. Well, family drama comes in all shapes and sizes and forms, and I've experienced my share, and I'm sure you have as well. And what do we do with it? How do we respond to it? And I think the number one question are we obligated to get involved with it? I remember getting an Email was a common. I might have been a comment on my blog. Yeah. It was it was about I wrote something about family, and how your family can be your choice. You can choose who you spend time with you can choose to spend time with your mom or your dad. Your sister, your brother or any of your relatives? Or anyone that you grew up with step? Parents step sisters brothers. You can choose who to spend time with most of the time sometimes you have obligations sometimes you have to take care of things. But most of the time you can choose to spend time with because there's a certain point where you get old enough. And you, you know, move out of the house, and you know, some of us most of us move out of the house and get our own places and get our own relationships and develop new families, and we can choose to revisit our old family members. If we want, and hopefully, you have a lot of healthy generally, compassionate, family members. But sometimes you don't have those sometimes you have one or two or more. For people that you don't want to spend time with and so I remember I wrote this article, and I said, you know, family is a choice. And he I think it was a he he said he was really angry. Like, I can't believe you would write this article. This is awful family is not a choice family is blood and family as forever. Those weren't his exact words, but they were pretty close. And he said, no matter what I would always be there for my family. And I replied, no, I think that's commendable. I think that's noble. I think that's wonderful. And if that works for you, and your family is there for you in the same way. Then you have something very special. You have something that is very unique. And you clearly have not experienced some of the stuff that me, and so many other millions or billions of people have experienced in life, which is a family member or members that bring so much drama so much chaos so much. Heartache so much pain that you can't be near them anymore. They bring this toxically with them and create this environment, which you can't survive in or if you can survive, it's at extreme detriment to yourself. And so I think in the article, and of course on my show. I talk about when you love someone you support them you support their happiness you support their path. You do whatever you can. So that they have a better life. I mean, not that you're supporting them in that way. You don't have to. But you support their journey that you support their decisions. Even if you disagree with him. You do what you can to support your friends and your family and your loved ones, and when you do that. And they do the same thing back. You can have a very wonderful cohesive intimate relationship with people that can do that for you as you do unto them. You can have a good relationship and that good relationship can be nurtured for years. Years and years. So that you do have that kind of attitude where I would do anything for that person and blood is stronger than any bond, and that's what I feel and that's all hollow always feel and some people can have that. And some people can't I can't have that with certain family members. I have I I wouldn't say excluded. But my might have I've excluded a couple of family members here and there especially one if you've been listening my stepfather, I've excluded him. He has not shown up in a very healthy way in my life. And if you want more to that story just listened to the last five years. Because I talk about them a lot, but he is not in my life anymore. And I choose to not have him in my life, and you might say, well, he's not blood relative. Well, I did the same thing with my dad for about ten years. I excluded him from my life. And then I slowly brought him back in after I went through my own healing in growth after I went through my own personal development after I learned about what I have value. What I except in won't accept for behavior in my life. This is the most important point when it comes to family, in my opinion, is that when you have family members that are showing up in some sort of detrimental or toxic way that what you should do. I'm gonna give you a should. I know it's not always good advice to listen to the sheds. But I'm gonna give you a shed what you should do when you have somebody that shows up in a toxic way. And they are a detriment to you. And you get drained any every time you're around them. I'll what you should do is get away from them for a while take care of yourself in learn what it is about yourself that bothers you so much about them. And what I mean by that is you. Yes, you point the finger. I and saying that person is doing this to me, and I'm going to say, okay. Yeah. It's not really that person doing that to you at your reaction to it. And we all know this. But I want you to say that person is doing this to me. Okay. What are they doing? Well, every time. Am I talk about my marriage? She makes fun of my husband or wife and our go. Okay. So when that person's let's say, your mom when your mom makes fun of your spouse. What do you say back, and you might I don't say anything. That's just the way she is. And now he can start to pinpoint where the problem is. I'm not saying that your problem I'm saying that how the situation unfolds from the point of how you feel will be what exacerbates amplifies or allows the problem to continue how you respond will allow the problem to continue or not. Because if my mom started talking about my girlfriend in a way that was not healthy and not supportive of my decision to be with my girlfriend. I'd be like, hey, mom. You know, why are you saying this about her? That's not very nice. You know, what's on your mind? You know, how to protest it very. Casually and passively at first because maybe something's on her mind. Maybe my girlfriend did or said something that upset her. So wanna find out what's on your mind? Mom, why are you saying this about here? But if it was a constant thing, and she never liked my girlfriend. I would be a little bit more adamant like, you know, every time you say that it upsets me, it upsets me because I'm your son, and I want I would hope that you would want me to be happy and having this girl in my life makes me happy. Why doesn't that make you happy that I'm happy? You see what I did there? I want her to address her own values and understand that she is violating her own balance. I mean, I'm assuming she wants me to be happy. So I would imagine that's value of hers, and I'm going to ask her why are you violating your own? I won't say those words, why are you violating your own? But why wouldn't you want me to be happy? Why? And then she might say, well, of course, I want you to be happy. But I just think she's bad for you. I think you can do better yet. But let's take it back to that. Same question. Mom. This woman makes me happy in every possible way doesn't make you happy that I'm happy. And really I I would paint her into a corner. So that she had to answer the question. Now, it's not always I was gonna say, it's not always easy. It might be easier for me than some people. Listen for sure because I've worked on this stuff. I've worked on values. I've worked on boundaries of worked on expressing myself in a way that says, hey, you're crossing the line. Hey, that's not acceptable behavior. What you just said is disrespectful. And I'm going to address it right now, for example, on the phone with this person, and they start saying something, and you have an opportunity to respond, and you don't is it really their fault. Is it really them amplifying or continuing the drama, or is you for not saying something in that moment and not emphasizing the line that they keep crossing is very clear cut to you. And if they cross it again, that's going to be a problem, and you have to think about it in these terms where yes, this person keeps showing up as a toxic influence as toxic entity in your life. But M, I honoring the line am I making it clear where the line is. So that when they cross it. I can say oh crossing that line. And then they. Can back up and go. Okay. Okay. Which you know, still wouldn't be the most fun because using my example, again about my mom, if my mom didn't like my girlfriend, and she started saying something bad, but I reminded her of the line and she backed off and she didn't mention it again. You know, that's okay, because people can have differences I've had girlfriends in my life that my mom didn't like and I loved and I was super happy with, but my mom didn't like them. But she knew that she wasn't going to give me grief about it. All the time. She wasn't going to say, I don't like that go you should never bring her. She'd never gave me grief about it on occasions. You would mention something it would be a little uncomfortable. But she never crossed the line. And you know, after we broke up she had free rein to say anything she wants. But she never crossed the line while I was seeing someone so this example's not one that she crosses the line. I have to continually push back. But when you have a relationship with special. A family member that does have a difference of opinion with you. And they do have a tendency to cross the line. But it's very infrequent. I think that's okay. I mean, that's there's a disagreement. There's a personality conflict, whatever, I think, that's okay. As long as they respect the line. But you have to make it clear. What that line is? This is personal boundaries one. Oh one. What is your line? What is acceptable and not acceptable in your life? So that when family tries to cross the line that you can be very clear and confident insecure in yourself because you know, what that line is. You know, what it represents when family crosses that line? And you feel confident in yourself what that line is. Because you've worked on yourself. You can express to them take a step back. You're crossing the line. That's tough. I know it is some family it it's going to be. Very tough. When my stepfather showed up at my mom's house, I've told the story a million times on star if you've heard of over and over again, but it was one of the most pivotal moments in my life, my stepfather, and my mom had been divorced for a couple of months, and then he shows up and she doesn't want him in the house. But this is the first time that I had seen him in years, and he shows up, and I'm used to being that fearful little boy around him that just does whatever you ask I'm used to being that. And here I am a forty plus year old guy answering the door and he standing right there. And I have a choice to make to let him in the house or not in that fearful boy just kicked right in at at first. And in my mind said, oh here he is. I better let him in because I don't want to cause trouble. I don't wanna you know. I don't wanna know. What happens if I say, no? And I've never defied him. So what do I do in this moment? But in that moment, I remembered all the. The work. I did on myself, and I didn't want to have fat up. Sorry. Sorry. Didn't use that language. But I mean, I'm I'm keeping it clean. I didn't want to mess that up. I didn't want to mess up all the work. I've done on myself. I want you to remember this. I mean, you're listening to this show. You're probably listening to other shows or doing other personal growth work. You don't want to mess up the work you've done by allowing the toughest challenges family. I know, but by allowing people to cross the lines that you're creating crossing the boundaries that you're putting out there. Because as soon as you do what is feel like it feels like you're going right back to where you were like all that work didn't matter at least, it does to me all that work that I just done for years and years didn't apply. Here was a big waste. I mean, that's what would feel like. And that's what it did feel like when my stepfather is there is that I felt like here. He is. I have this boundary that he's about to cross. I don't want him in the house, and my mom definitely doesn't want him in the house. So I had this extra layer of protectiveness that I had to pull out. I didn't have this naturally. This protective nature I had to pull this out of somewhere and really step into myself and be confident in what I done in my life to get to this place in face. The biggest challenge that I'd ever had to face. Well, that's not the biggest. But the biggest boundary challenge that I've ever had to face. And in that moment, I had to make the decision to let him in or not. And if I didn't what am I going to say, and what would happen if I said that I'm gonna say get out of here. You son of a, you know, you can't be, you know, should I say that or I didn't know what to say. So I just said to myself ethnic. Does a great question. You've probably heard me ask it before if I had no fear of the consequences. What would I say? What would I say in the the first thing that came to my mind is sorry. You can't. Come in. It's a simple. I'm sorry. You can't come in. That was my boundary. I didn't have to enforce it in an angry way. I just realized the boundary and asked myself if I had no fear of the consequences. What would I say, I'm still a fairly kind person? So I'm not gonna say get outta here. You son of a you know, what I'm gonna say, I'm sorry. You can't come in. That's really all that needed to be said, he looked at me kind of quizzically showing his shoulders and said, okay turned around and walked away. That was shocking. What's amazing? It was shocking. An amazing. And I didn't know what to do except backup slow the and closed the door and hope he didn't turn around, and I don't know smashed a window. I didn't know what to expect. Here's a guy that I am at least a foot and a half taller then. And he's standing in front of me, and I'm afraid for my life. I'm afraid that he's gonna punch me in the face. I had no idea because I never. Defied him. We go through so much of our life worrying about how someone's going to respond or react because we've never defied them. We've never honored ourselves with them. We've never told them what we wanted. We've only done with Dave wanted or what we believed they wanted. And so we limit ourselves in who we are. And we can't show up as authentic, and when we can't show up as Fenwick because we're showing up as the person we believe we need to be for someone else. Then we feel unhappy. Then we feel unfulfilled that we feel our life is not as satisfying as it could be because we're setting ourselves up because we're so afraid of the consequences of doing what we know is right for us. But what if or instead of a what if we know this will happen? I knew that day. My stepfather was gonna punch me in the face a new it. But I decided to take the punch. Anyway, he didn't I'm so grateful for that. But I had had enough of people crossing my mountains, even the people that didn't know they were crossing my batteries. I had just had enough in me of allowing people to do it a lot of people don't know when they're crossing boundaries. Because you never make them clear. They won't know we just expect them to know, we expect them to look at us and say, oh, gee, I feel really bad. I must've did something to that person that they didn't like I'd better not do that. Again, we expect them to figure it out a lot of the times we expect someone to come up with a brilliant idea that they're doing something bad to us. We expect it and it never happens because we never define it. And they're oblivious. This is what I've learned is my stepfather was oblivious that he was crossing any of my memories my whole life because I never told them what those boundaries were. And I've heard people right to me and people I've coached before. They listened tell me I've never heard about personal boundaries until you started talking about it. I think in general people understand what a personal boundary is like you're sitting at your desk and someone comes along and they put their head right over your shoulder and stare, which you're writing and you're like, I'm feeling very personally violated here. You're kind of in my space. I think people think that's a personal boundary, but personal boundaries are so much deeper so much more real in the sense that we define what we want in our lives. What's important to us? It's part of our value system. Yes. But it's so much more than that. What creates strife what creates tension in our life that we have to put up a boundary in and with family. Sometimes you have to put up boundaries that tell them. Hey when you cross this line. It's no longer my fault for allowing your behavior. It's your fault for not honoring my wishes for not honoring me before. I let you cross the. The line, and it was my fault. Now, I'm stopping you at the line, and it will be your fault. If you cross it. Therefore, I'm letting you now I'm giving you that option in a loving healthy way. I'm letting you know the next time you do this. It'll be a problem. And what is that problem? The accountability steps in if you cross this line, I'm going to be angry. I'm going to say, look you're crossing the line. I'm hanging up now or I'm leaving now or you know, what I'm going to be gone for a week. And I'll see you when I get back. These little bits of accountability. They may say well too bad. I don't care. You're the one with the problem, not me know, hopefully, you'll have people like that in your life. But if you do then, you know, you're dealing with. And you realize that your boundaries aren't important to them. And then you have this realization that someone in your life really doesn't care about your boundaries. And when that's true. What do you do? Then look I realize it's not always easy to enforce your boundaries. I realize especially with family who think they know you so well because they've known you all your life. That's one of the biggest challenges that we have these people in our lives that have known us all of our life. And they think they know us, but they don't. I don't think anyone knows me as well. As I know me now, but only because I've done the work. And this is where I think it's the healthiest place to be is that when you separate yourself from toxic or bad or just any type of negative influence or anything that's unsupportive when you separate separate yourself from that for a little bit and do the work. Do the healing do the growth. Do the therapy. Do the coaching whatever it takes listening to podcast reading books, which is being outside in nature. Meditating all of this stuff that connects you to you when you do the work, and you finally know thyself you finally though yourself well enough that you can return to any family situation almost any. There are still some challenges that the probably need addressing on different episodes. But almost any family situation in general where you have an opportunity to show these people who you are. In almost a fearless way in. It's not a matter of showing up saying, I don't fear you. It's a matter of showing up saying, I have no fear being me. I want you to have that. There's a lot more to talk about on the subject. I'm going to read you an Email when we come back. We'll get into some other aspects of this be right back. So you may know that I moved recently over, and I moved out of a rental into a house I have moved on to Georgia a few years ago and moved in with her and we've been deciding ever since what we're going to do. And we finally decided that okay? Let's buy a house because I wasn't even sure if I wanted to settle in Georgia, but I decided to spend some time down here. And be with my girlfriend. Of course. I mean wherever she goes. I'm kind of attached at the hip now, which is great and she'd been in that rental for about eight years when I joined her I've I've lived there for about three years, and it was time to go. It's time to pack up and buy a house together. And you know, start the next phase of our life and the moving took weeks. It just we kept clearing stuff out of the apartment, and when we finally got the place empty we noticed. How dirty it was was filthy. We can see everything that we can see, and we clean what we see. But what about all that stuff that we can't see? And so we had all this dust built up everywhere. They were stains that we didn't even know were there until we moved that thing we have just a lot of dust and a lot of dirt a lot of grime a lot of build up. And it's I mean, it's not like we live like slobs. But at the same time. This stuff just happens. You you're at a place for a long time and dust and grime and food that spills behind stuff just builds up. So one of the things that we weren't looking forward to putting all this effort into cleaning the rental just to leave it in a nice condition for the landlord to do something with it. And so in our new house, we didn't really want to go back. We didn't want to go back to the rental and put any more time and energy into it. Because we've been moving for so long, and then I had an idea that my girlfriend called brilliant. I said, let's get someone else to clean it. Let's schedule an appointment with handy in do the job that we don't wanna do. That's exactly what I did. I create an account. I downloaded the app to my phone and within minutes. I had someone scheduled to do the cleaning. We report you late. And we were both thrilled that we can do this so fast. We. We didn't have to do any background checks. That's already done for us through handy. You go to handy dot com and find out more about that. There was a rating system that told us with other people said about the pro coming over to clean the place, and we were able to just let it go. We were able to just say, okay, great. We don't have to clean it. What I mean? We went over to the litter in and we had a Finnish some other stuff up. But they are. She was she showed up right on time. It was great. I actually watch her on this little GPS tracking system they have on their app. It tells me where she is tells me that she arrived. And then when she got there, she I forget, text me or call me. And she said that she was there, and I went down to meet her, and there she was it was all perfect. It was all seamless and the person who arrived those wonderful. And we even said, hey, we're we're gonna clean this part. Because this is something that we did. And she said Dow, let me do everything I'll take care of this. And so we knew it was in good hands. And we left we ate lunch. We came back in. And the plays was spotless. It was a such a good feeling to look and see that all of this was done for us.

And it's about family, drama course, we're gonna keep it in the realm of family drama because we all love family trouble. Not really, but we all need to know about it. We all need to talk about it. And we all need to heal from it when it's been pretty painful and toxic food throughout our lives. This person I'm gonna call 'em. How about aerial aerial says, of course, I'm gonna start with how much I appreciate your work. It's been a real joy listening to you over the years. The first episode I listened to is when you mentioned an exercise of going back to a childhood memory and talking to your childhood self that is so much for me. And I was hooked to your podcast after that. Yes area. Thank you so much for your kind words, and I absolutely recommend that if you've never heard an episode where I talked about visiting your child self that inner child work where you go back and visit a version of yourself that needed something that he or she didn't have back then it can be powerful. All eight can be useful. Absolutely. It can build new resources inside of you that you didn't have back then that suddenly appear in your life today. It's like a magical time travel that if you choose to do it in you really work through in the sense where you show up as your adult self today with more resources that that child didn't have then. And you just imagine you see your your younger self in a state that they need you most or they need something most. What is that something you can give them? I think that's a great exercise. I've talked about another episodes. But yes, certainly, I'm glad to hear that worked for you aerial when we continue with your Email here aerial says, I'm looking for some advice regarding family influence in a nutshell. My immediate family is a group of cereal warriors, not like samurai warriors. But the actual worrying like I'm worried about what might happen. They default negatively. Victimhood and apathy, myself included. I don't so much personal work in the past five years and have come so far from that. Now, my issue is it seems like their lives are becoming gradually worse and worse while they bury themselves further and further I can't help but feel the guilt obligation and duty to do something about it. The problem is I know if I get too close I'll get dragged into the quicksand as well. Yes, she probably will even if I did I wouldn't know how to help them because I don't have their issues, and I know deep down I not willing to one hundred percent commit to helping them because I'm busy trying to help myself right now, I fear. My sisters are on their way or are already having suicidal thoughts. My mother convincing herself that she failed at life, and we'll die as a failure. And my father isolating himself into a non Mundus world and wasting his last days and the miserable. Negatively, I think you will most likely describe them as toxic, and I could agree. However, I was raised with old school family values. And can't uncondition myself from the guilt, and I don't know how to deal with it or them. Let me just make a comment before I read the rest of this. I don't know if I would describe people with these characteristics or personality, quirks or traits or whatever you wanna call it as toxic. I used the word toxic a lot not to describe people in general, but describe behavior in situations and sometimes relationships, but like, for example, your if your sisters are really having suicidal thoughts. I definitely wouldn't consider that toxic. They may be having toxic thoughts. They may be exposed to toxic behavior from people, but they aren't necessarily toxic themselves. Now, they may be toxic to you because of the drama. So I'm not going to necessarily say that these people are toxic because I like to look at toxic behavior, and even toxic people have been known to say, there are toxic people. Yes that these are the people. I say you need to work out, your differences, and everything I said in the last segment you need to state your boundaries. Very clearly, and you just need to be a little bit more self compassionate and self loving around them. So that they don't bring you down. It's almost like you have to make up for the energy draw that they take from you. This not always the case. And I'm I'm just kinda speaking from the the hip right now. But I don't want you to think that everyone with problems or dysfunctions is toxic. So I just don't want that to get out in the world. Is that there are toxic people out there? There are toxic behaviors. But just because someone has stuff they're going through. They can be toxic to us because of our response to it, which means maybe we need some detox so that'll help, but they could also be toxic to themselves because of their responses. So I don't know if that clears anything up, but that's kind what I was thinking on the fly here. He goes on to say in a situation with a toxic partner. I can totally get through that. Because I feel that a person is a choice. I cannot look at my family as a choice. I did not choose them. I don't want to disconnect from them. But I don't want to get sucked into the abyss either. I'm in my thirties. I'm single I'm a people pleaser, and I'm working on that. That's good. And I've always taken the role of the family mediator as I seem to have the most rational, non dramatic logic of the family if that's relevant. I also have the easier life out of the people I just described. So maybe I just think I'm less dramatic and more stress proof. Anyway, I'm hoping you have some advice for me in dealing with this as. Lately. Value your life experience. And would appreciate a reply. Okay, aerial. Thank you for sharing that and for your admission that you're a people pleaser. I admit that I have been a people pleaser for very long time. And it's Niks out every now, and then, but now a use it as a tool now, I use it as a resource when I need it. Now, I know when to use it because there are some people that might show up in a way that you need to turn on some people pleasing just to calm them down and get through things. Like, you said, you're the mediator. You know? I was a middle child. I became somewhat of a mediator. I've definitely been accused of being more passive imbalanced than my siblings. But I haven't gauged that. I haven't tested that. But I think that they do see me as the more balanced person than the, and I guess that comes from middle child syndrome or something, I don't know. But I have definitely grown to be a people pleaser when I was starting from very young because I watched my mom do it. And when you live on abusive alcoholic, you either fight back and resist and cause more problems or you submit and become more passive. And people pleasing just to get through each and every night. And that's what my mom did. I mean, of course, option three is leave and some people don't think they can do that. Some people are feel very stock in. That's a whole nother issue on another episode. But this is what my mom and our family. Did we stayed and staying we had to develop dysfunction in order to complement the dysfunction in order to synchronize in order to get arguers in alignment with his gears. So that we could have some sort of functioning machine. And so that's what we did my mom developed this my older sister's developed personality traits, one of them was more, passive the other one was more rebellious. And then I came along. And I just learned how to deal with it like, my mom, and suddenly I had this dysfunction that I take with me until I learn about boundaries until I learned that I'm actually worthy and important, and I can actually honor myself and draw the line, and this is. Where it sounds like you are at aerial as far as putting that line in the sand saying, you know, you can't cross this. I mean, you didn't necessarily say that. But if you get sucked into the drama that is certainly something that you can look in at yourself and realize at what point you are allowing that part of yourself to get sucked in when I say that part of yourself. I mean, think of the last segment when you think of all the work you've done on yourself. What part of that isn't being applied at that moment. So that's important. It's important to understand the work that I've done on myself. What part of that is not being applied in? Why am I not applying now? Yeah. Well, you know, the people pleaser kicks in. I don't want to upset the person. I don't wanna make them think I'm a bad person. I want them to love me. I don't wanna lose this person in my life. That's great. And all, but why are you showing up as because do you want them to love and honor the real you or only? The you that you pretend to be around them. But I'm not pretending. This is who I am. I've developed this personality is this who you really wanna be. That's another good question is this who I really wanna be is this how I want to show up in the world is this how I want to show up for them. So in the last segment, I talked about some very challenging things to do. Or at least one thing is drawing that line. Making boundaries known best challenging I'm not gonna say that was easy at all. It was a risk. It was a leap of faith. It was scary as heck. It was scary. And doing that meant that. I was about to take one for the team. Who's the team me? I was ready to take a punch for the team. I was ready to take punch for my integrity for my authenticity for my dignity for me. I was ready to sacrifice for me. Sounds a little strange when I say it that way. But. That's what I felt like this is all the work. I've done on myself. I'm not going to let this person take it away. So I just want you to keep that in mind. I'm not saying it applies to what you're going through. Now, you've got some other stuff going on here. Like, your family's a bunch of warriors. Like, you said, and let me just make some comments on some of the things that you said and see where we can go with this like a constant worrying, I mean that usually stems from a situation that unique closure on like if I am constantly worrying about money any closure on that. I either need to sell something or get a job or something else. So that I can stop worrying about money, but I have all these hospital bills or I had the student loan or this or this or this. Okay. Well, I really gotta get clear then I really got to get focused. I better listen to Dave Ramsey one of my favorite guys. He's a financial radio show host. He helped me get out of debt a longtime ago. I better listen to him. I better. Read about money, but a learn how to control my money. Save money. I'm gonna focus on money because I'm constantly worried about it. So that's one way to reach closure. It may not help you may have to spend the next ten years getting out of debt. But what can I do to start the process? So that I get a little closer each day. You might be constantly worried about someone in the hospital. That would be terrible is someone is in a hospital bed, and you you're not sure if they're gonna live or die, and it could be weeks, you might be constantly worrying, you're going to get to the point where you either have no idea, and you have to accept that. This is the way it is. You know, that's something to constantly worry about that. Hopefully as temporary in most cases, it is temporary. You're not sure if someone's gonna live or die, but you eventually find out I think there are things in life that we can constantly worry about that. You may not be able to get past. How about if your child gets abducted? I mean. That is something that if I had children in my child was abducted, I will be constantly worried about it until I was dead. I'll admit it. Now, I would be constantly worried about it the worrying would decrease in it does an I saying that it's still not important, but the worrying can and should decrease because there's nothing you can do about it after a while you realize if you Tilleke of worrying really takes you away from so many other things in life that maybe you need to be doing maybe need to be doing for yourself. Maybe you need to work on yourself. And then the example, I'd issues about the child work with groups work with law enforcement work with so many other people, and you can't be in constant worrying state where you can't do anything it decreases a little so that you can get your function back. And and that's an extreme example. I hope I didn't bring up any sensitive issues for anyone out there. Because believe me if I had a superpower the my super power road. Be to find missing children. That would be my superpower, find them and bring them home or at least find closure for parents and family out there. That would be my superpower I walked that super. I'm declaring it in the world right now. I want that superpower. But what about other stuff that we worry about what about worrying about someone coming home? And if they're going to be angry or not I mean, stop like that. Why do we have to worry about this stuff so much? Well, I know I mean, I'm not saying I don't know why. I know why. Because we're worried that if he or she has this attitude become on our nights gonna go. Well, or it's not gonna go. Well, and this is where we might have to draw some boundaries or make it clear that when you come home and yell at me or yell at the kids, or whatever it really ruined my night. It really makes me it really makes me think twice about this relationship. This is something I would say maybe not those exact words, but that's the space. I go in because I'm constantly worrying about it. So what do I need to close? This. If I'm constantly worried about maybe someone's attitudes. Someone's response, then I'm going to make it clear. The next time they respond that way that there's a problem with it. I'm having an issue with this response. Every time we do this. I'm having an issue with it not saying, this is the solid answer that is going to fix everything I'm saying that what closure your new reach with constant worry. And this isn't exactly areas question. But I'm dressing worry in the sense that it's important to know that constant worry needs closure. So what can I do to close it? Now, how this does affect aerial is that if someone is constantly complaining to you area. And they're so worried about something and they keep sharing with you. How worried they are. And then what you can do is help them. Find closure if you want, but if somebody was constantly worried and complaining or venting or whatever to me about something. I would ask them. Well, you know, first of all what do you think the solution? Is what do you think the solution to the problem is they may say there is no solution? Does nothing I can do. And I you know, I might follow that up of while if there's nothing you can do why do you always worry about it? I mean, you just have to accept that. That's how it is. You know, we could talk about that some. But I would probably help them find closure. I mean, if they wanted it if they were constantly wearing constantly complaining to me. I might ask them. Well, do you wanna find closure to this? That's a good question. Do you want closure if they say, well, there's nothing I can do. I would still ask. Well, do you want closure? Do you want this over do you wanna stop worrying about it? And hopefully, they say, yes, I I would love that. I would love to stop worrying about it. Then I would ask the question. Well, what needs to happen? So that you can stop worrying about it. And wait for their response. They may not have visited that question ever. They may just I just want to stop while. What do you want to stop? I just want him to be kind when he comes home. Well, have you asked him to be kind when he comes home while? No, he should know. This is what I was talking about earlier. So you never stated that boundary. You just expect someone to know that you wanted right? And then you might have a different conversation. But my thoughts about someone who constantly worries is to present them with the challenge of the solution. Okay. So if you did state your boundaries, and he did honor those boundaries, and he didn't come home and be upset like that anymore. Then you wouldn't have anything more to worry about right in. This is really helping them. Explore the worry. I don't know if it's going to help you aerial. It sounds like the people in your life. The family is sort of in this repetitive drama cycle that they feed off each other. They might be a lot of enabling going on which brings up my next point of secondary gain. What do they have to gain from being negative? Live from worrying from being the victim. How do the other members of the family, including yourself show up in their lives that benefits them when they're being this way? This might be a little harder to find out. But usually people don't drag on the drama, unless they're benefiting in some way, even the person that says all my life is so awful. And this thing happens in this thing happens, and it could all be true. But they say the lie in they're always repeating it. And there's never closure. Oh, it's always this. And it's always this and their friend is like, oh, you're poor thing. Oh here. Put your head on my shoulder. Oh, your poor thing. And every time the drama comes out. So does the love and affection and support, and I think that's a bad thing. But I am saying there is a bit of enabling when you look at it in the context of secondary gain. What can they gain secondarily from what? They're doing that is negative. And when you find out what that secondary gain is. And you take it away sometimes the drama stops. If your mom your daddy. Your sister. Your brother is complaining in you show up the same way in your supportive and loving which again is not a bad thing. I'm not saying it's a problem. It can be. But right now, I'm talking about how are they gaining from it because if what your doing what how you shall have or other family members are showing up is causing them to gain something positive from it. Then they're going to continue doing most likely they're gonna continue being that same way the way you don't like so you really have to assess how your showing up in someone's life when someone gets into that drama chatter where life sucks this life sucks that this is a problem. This is a problem. This is a problem. And again, we try to offer solutions. We ask them what the solution is what is the closure. How can you get closure from this? And if they never want to go there, and they always have another excuse in another excuse than they're probably a little dictated to the drama. And why are they addicted to the drama because they're getting positive reinforcement for being in the drama. It may not be you Ariel could be just a number of factors or it could be other family members. But we have to understand what someone's getting from it. Otherwise, they wouldn't be doing it. If someone was complaining about their life three or four times a day. I mean different aspects of their life and suddenly their hands caught on fire. I guarantee you they would stop complaining they would find something else to complain about. Hopefully, their focus would be on their hands. And why they spontaneously combust, but when they stop complaining, then they have to find something else to do with their time. What else am I going to do with my time? All I have is this, but my mom she spent a lot of years and still today is not not as much though still today. Complaints about my. Stepfather even though they're separated because I mean now and then she still season. But most of the time she doesn't talk about him. But it took a long time for her to get out of that drama cycle that drama chatter that kept returning when he was in her life, and I can seek it separating from her now that drama cycle isn't there anymore because when she was able to complain about him, I and other family members would show up in a very supportive loving kind and affectionate way. And I'm not saying that she was so hooked on secondary gain. But she was definitely in a space of not honoring herself in drawing a line and just dealing with things as they came because she wasn't able to honor herself and say, look, you're crossing the line you need to get out of my house, you need to get out of my life. He was doing things that were definitely crossing her line. But she never spoke up and even when she did. And she expressed her dislike for what he was doing in. So many words she never. Provided accountability she never went that extra step. And you know, she felt like she couldn't she didn't feel safe. She didn't have the money. There was a lot of reasons, and I get it. I understand that. But we do have to look at the cause. Because sometimes we ignore the red flags until they're a part of our lives, and we don't see him as red flags anymore. I just talked about this on my other podcast called love and abuse. I don't know if it's an I tuned jet. I was going to mention it at the end of the show, but I do know that if you go to and abuse dot com. The second episode not the introductory one. But the second one is all about how we ignore red flags until they become a part of our normal life, and suddenly we don't see him at red flags anymore and we've gotten so deep into the drama in so deep into the dysfunction that we're not sure how to get out. We lose a part of ourselves. So if you want to check that out go to love and abuse dot com. I don't know if it's an I tuned jet or any other podcast player for that matter. But if it's an itunes it usually is in the other players as well. It was just submitted the other day. Yes, it's finally. It's finally recorded. It's finally out there. And I plan on updating as much as possible, but you can check that out. If you're interested in that. But the idea of noticing the red flags as soon as possible so that you don't get sucked into the drama or dysfunction. So that you understand the cause started a long time ago when you allowed a person to cross your boundaries, the cause started back, then when you hope the other person would change, but they didn't. And so we do at the look at these red flags in our life and make sure that we're not just letting them slip by and not speaking up for our selves. I know it's not always easy. Like, I said, I know again, this is so difficult if you never worked on personal boundaries. If you haven't worked on yourself, which is why I say in for you aerial you need to separate work on yourself. So that you're confident in yourself. So that when you show up in your family, you have no fear being you want you to have no fear being you. I want you to show up that way. So that when something happens that you are. Okay in you. You don't go into some sort of emotionally triggered state. And now, you become this defenseless little child that is so afraid to speak up and say what you need to say that you get sucked right back into that quicksand like you said because that's no fun. So there's a few more things I want to say about your message aerial. And then I'll then we'll close the show shortly here what talked about worrying and closure and I talked about secondary gain. Oh, this has to do with the meditation that I suggested on other episodes where you wake up on morning, and you're the last person on earth if you woke up tomorrow in you're the only person left on earth, then thinking about the problems you've been dealing with. How are they? Now. Are they still a problem? Do they still affect you? In the reason I like meditation is because we can probably pinpoint most of our problems on other people. But if no one's around in your the. Only one left. What do you do with those problems where do they go? What happens in your life who do you show up as now? So the reason I'm suggesting missed yariel is a way to gauge if secondary gain is in play because if they are benefiting from other people being in their life in a way that gives them positive reinforcement for their behavior. Then whoa. How would they behave? If no one else was in their life. How would your mom or your dad or your sisters? How would any of them respond to the world if so and so wasn't there anymore? That doesn't give you a resolution that just gives you an idea of how somebody shows up in a way that positively reinforces a negative thing. So it's a helpful analytical way to look at something. Like, how it my sister show up if I wasn't around anymore. Oh, she would probably be more upset. Well, how about if your mom wasn't around your dad wasn't around. How would they show up? And this is a great question to ask your family. If you ever wanted to. To play the game is like if you woke up tomorrow, and everyone you knew disappeared in an you're the only one here. What would your problems be then or how would you feel about the problems you've been dealing with? I'm not saying you have to be their therapist or coach or whatever I'm just saying that if you want to have some sort of productive conversation that might be something you can ask them because what it does is put them in that state of what it's like to live their life without that other person in it, and it might actually give them access to a resource that they didn't necessarily see before. And when I say resort that might be some sort of thought or idea or concept or feeling that they haven't had access to because they believe that their life would never change. So that's a helpful meditation or question, you can ask somebody. What would you do if that person wasn't in your life anymore? I just asked this of a coaching client the other day. I said what if you woke up tomorrow and your husband said, I don't want to be here anymore. I want to get a divorce. I'm leaving. What would you say? I sometimes asset of clients. What would you do or how would you feel if your if you woke up tomorrow in the person, and that person left, what would you say or feel how would you feel then and their answer is very telling their enter tells me exactly how they would feel and maybe what direction they need to take for themselves. But they don't they they may not want to take that direction. They may want the other person to take the steps to change when they themselves might be the only person that can change what's going on. And when that's the case sometimes you have to take bolder steps. Anyway, I have more to say on this one. I'm going to do is give you a few more bits of information bits of my opinions and insights on this aerial. And when we come back, I'm going to say some thank yous, and then we'll end the show with my my final words after this. Thank you.

He said, thanks for the excellent piece you wrote on goals for people who like us who hate goal setting and Dave from New Zealand actually donated to me for that. I wanted to thank you for that. Dave. And if you're interested in what Dave talking about there's a an article I wrote a couple of years ago called goal setting for people who hate setting goals or something like that. And you can just go to the overwhelmed, brain dot com and type in the words goal setting in the search field and you'll find this article in I am appreciative. Thank you. Dave. And it it's an article that. I wrote from personal experience because I do heat setting goals. I'm the kind of guy that if I set a goal of like, I don't know. I used to do this martial arts. They said set a goal for one hundred push ups. But if I never reached one hundred push ups that I have constant negative reinforcement that I'm not reaching my goals. And I thought this can't be how the world works. If you set goals, and you never reach them. You're going to be disappointed over and over again. So I decided to create an episode create an article called goal setting for people who hate setting goals. And I talk about how I do it now. And sometimes I say it's not like, I don't do any goals for anything ever. But there is a method that I use that I prefer over like strict pragmatic goal setting. And so thank you. Dave.

And I will let you know that it is ready to subscribe to if you're interested in that again that's going to be focused on emotional abuse, manipulation deceptive language communication and not just in like romantic relationships in any relationships. I think in my second episode. I talked about a business relationship like a sales relationship where people use coercive or manipulative language, and I think it's going to be a huge huge help for a lot of people that are in any type of situation where they think they're getting bamboozled or they think they're being emotionally manipulated or abuse. Any of those situations that you want to know what's happening. You can't tell what's happening. You just know. It's happening something's happening because you feel bad or because you got conned or something that's at love and abuse dot com. It is. The official podcast of the mean workbook. So if you have the workbook that's a bonus. You don't need the workbook to listen to it. But the workbook itself is how to assess if your relationship is emotionally abusive, and at what level and what you can do about it and how you can heal from it all kinds of things over at love and abuse dot com. And Finally, I'd like to think Kevin McCloud them incompetent dot com for some of the music transitions in the overwhelmed brain, all right? My last thoughts on aerials letter. I really haven't given him a solid answer yet. But I'm giving him bits and pieces regarding the different parts of the Email that he sent just to give him an anyone else listening some idea and how to deal with family drama or family members themselves. My last thought on that is if you really wanna help family than just seems to be on a downward spiral. And and you feel like there's nothing you can do and you just watching them fade away. And you feel like this is it this. You know, there's nothing more. I can do it. It just seems like they're. Doomed doomed or what am I going to do? There's nothing I can do. I think the best thing you can do when it comes to that is to make it known that you're there, if they need you your year, your shoulder to cry on you can offer advice, but only if they ask and you show up is the best version of yourself. So you act as a beacon and not an enabling what I mean by that is a beacon shines. The beacon is the one to turn to when things go badly. It's the lighthouse in the night and you're lost at sea. And all you see is that little bit of light way in the distance. That's probably what you're going to head toward if you're the captain of this ship, and you need to get to safety. You're going to look toward that light. You're gonna see that beacon. You're going to know there's a land there. There's something there. That's gonna save you and boy when you can show up in someone's life. I mean, if you. Want to be in their life. I'm not saying you have to be in someone's life. But they're bringing you down, and you can't be around them. And it's just draining. You then that is the perfect time to go off and work on yourself. Be with yourself heal yourself. Ground yourself connect with yourself. Do what you can to learn healing grow. So that you can return as this person who is sure of him or herself. So that when you are in this situation that they're dysfunction there drama. They are toxic behavior. Whatever they have going on stays on that side because you have a boundary, and if they crossed that boundary you'd lovingly say, hey, you know, you're crossing my boundary just back a little bit. And I'm here for you. Because you can do this. You can be loving and have boundaries. You can love someone with boundaries. You can say I am absolutely here for you. What's going on in your life, and they can share it, and they can maybe pour out the drama chatter making continue. Being what you might perceive as the victim. They can do all this stuff. And it's not going to bother you. Because you know, who you are you are fearless being yourself. And they're not really a threat to you. They just need someone to express to they might need to express to you every day in the same story every day, you may or may not want to hear it. But this is what I do. This is how I show up for like, my mom, my mom still has complaints. She still has worries. She still has concerns even though she hasn't been married to the quote problem for a couple of years. Now they've been divorced for a couple of years. He still shows up at family functions. Every now, and then and she has to deal with it. But when she has a complaint when it's the same old complaint. I listen, and I don't say mom, you already told me this. Why don't you do this? Why don't you do that? I used to be that way. But when I showed up that way, boy that that didn't help at all. In fact, it closed her down it caused her to not want to express herself to me and the more. I allowed. That in the more. She was able to do that with me the more free. She was to be herself the more free. She felt to share with me the more safe. She felt the more. She looked to me as that lighthouse as that beacon, not patting myself on the back. I'm saying that when you show up for someone is that safe non judgmental person. They will have a tendency to look to you not necessarily as their salvation. But just someone safe to be around someone caring someone compassionate. And when you are that person, then there could be that glimmer in their I where they look at you and go, wow, how do you do it? And at that point, you can share what you do you can share that. I get away from certain people in my life and take time to myself. I work on myself. I work on healing. You know, I look at my old emotional wounds and find out what still triggers me, and I work on that stuff. I figure it out and. I keep figuring it out. And I keep working on myself. So that when I'm in more dramatic situations like in our family. I know who I am because I can lose myself very easily around family just like you can. But as long as I know who I am then I know how to show up because I've learned so well exactly who I am. And who I want to be in who I want to continue being because I don't want to be the old person that becomes fearful and anxious and full of stress in Zion. When I'm around family. I want to go beyond that. So when I'm around certain people that make me feel that way. I don't feel that way because I have a different response now because I know who I want to be and I can love with boundaries. And if you like the way I show up I'd be happy to do what I can to help you get there. So this is why that when you take time to yourself when you take time to heal when you take time to get to know who you are what you like what you. You don't like what you love about yourself. What you hate about yourself everything under the sun about you. You get to know you that way when you show up, and you know, what you want to keep about yourself, then you're able to be in almost any type of toxic or dysfunctional situation. And make it known that this is something you can't take away from me. This is something I can't let you have. And you do so with an almost fearless conviction that you know, what is right for you. This is what I say. At the beginning of the show when you are honoring yourself, and you feel confident in yourself and you feel worthy in yourself. Then you make decisions that are right for you. And this even works and family, you can be loving and compassionate and kind without losing you in anyone else's drama. You don't have to lose yourself. This is why it's important to work on yourself. So that I'm not saying that you have to be someone else's beacon. But what? Happens. Is you work on yourself that you show up so confident in yourself, and you carry this jury of self with you that people can look at you go. Wow. I I really like this vibe that you have I really appreciate that you can honor yourself and your very aware of your own beliefs and values and boundaries. And you're willing to stand up for those boundaries. I really appreciate that. I want some of that when you're around family, and they see that about you. Then maybe it'll rub off maybe they'll feel like they want that for themselves to again, I'm not saying you have to show up for these people. I really want you to do this for yourself. But that's the benefit of doing. It is that you affect other people in a positive way. And this is why it's so important that you don't get sucked into the drama that you don't show up with any guilt or obligating feelings towards someone else because then that adds to the dysfunctional cycle that adds to what could be a toxic environment. And so in order to avoid. Loyd that toxic coming back to you. It's vital that you continue working on yourself. So that when you show up in these situations, you are more of a beacon instead of an enabler instead of someone that complements everyone else's dysfunction because you all fit into the formula in some way that keeps the dysfunction alive. And when someone can look at you and say, I'd rather be more like you than to have to live in my own drama every day, you can share what you've done to get there because they may need that. If you really want to stay involved with people that, you know, are in this drama cycle that you know are in this dysfunction. Then it's so vital that you work on yourself to the point where you are almost impenetrable. I'm not in penetrable. I'm not saying that that's easy either. I'm just saying that you get to the point where you know, thyself well, and you show up as I self strongly because sometimes in a family dynamic, if you're not the role model who is who is. The role model in your family. It's not your job. But if everything's falling apart, and you have a bunch of people, let's say in a room. Do you look for the person with all the worry and the tension in the fear or do you look for the one that seems to have all of his or her stuff together? Do you look for the person that appears to be confident in themselves and feels like a leader to you to help everyone get through the dark times. This is why showing up for you is much more valuable than almost anything. You can do because you end up representing a stability that perhaps other people need again, you don't necessarily do it for everyone else. You don't have to be the leader. This is all based on what area was saying. Which was I want to be part of this family. Don't wanna lose this family. So what do you do you might have to work on yourself to the point where you are this leader, this beacon this light that people can look to and say, yes, I want more of that. I want more of that energy. I want to be like that. So that at least. One person in the dynamic is an example of how life can be because sometimes we don't see it. Sometimes when there are people around us that don't have it any better in aren't any better off. We think that this is all life has to offer and oboe isn't this fun, sarcastically speaking, and that's tough. I don't want you to be in that position. Where you think that this is all there is I want you to keep an open mind. So that you can step into your power. When you are empowered. This helps you be firm in your decisions and actions, so that you can create the life you want when you're creating the life you want other people notice it other people might even want. What you have how did you do that? How did you create the life you want? How can you stand up to that person? How can you say? Yes when you mean? Yes. And no one you mean, no. And you might say, well, I'm happy to share it with you if you'd like to know, and maybe all the healing and personal growth that you've done on yourself spreads to them to that could be just a little side. Benefit as you heal and grow, maybe they will too, and maybe they wouldn't have gone in that direction. Had you not done. Sometimes this can happen. So always continue taking steps to grow in devolve. You are powerful beyond measure and above all. And this is something. I absolutely know to be true about you. You are amazing.

Thanks. Enjoy the episode. The hugging. Contest. Once upon a time in a friendly old forest. There was a wild commotion animals. Ran back and forth from tree to stream to cave to hollow babbling excitedly about the big plans for the day the birds chirped about it, the wolves howled about it. The my squeaked about it. And even the bugs buzzed about it. It was all anyone could talk about. And as the start time neared the gathering crowd grew louder and louder it got so loud that it woke up scales. A very long and very sleepy snake? What's everyone making all this fuss about he asked lifting his sleek green head and tasting the air with quick flicks of his tongue? He was in the middle of his afternoon. Sun nap, which he always took in a bright little clearing near the center of the forest right on top of the rock he slept under. Usually, it was quiet more. More than quiet. It was downright serene. Not today, though, didn't you hear said a very small rabbit with very large feet. It's finally time finally time for what? Scales asked confused the rabbit rolled her eyes and twitched her caught me tail look contest. It's finally time for the contest. What contest scales was more confused than ever the rabbit shook her head, what do you live under a rock? Actually. Yes. Scale said I live under this rock were sitting on now. Oh, well, that makes sense then said the rabbit embarrassed. It's the hugging. Contest were all coming together to see who can give the best cozy as tightest tug scales. Lifted up on his long body and peered around. He saw animals of all kinds from foxes and hawks two squirrels and sloth and many more. They were all laughing and having a good time and many a hug was already taking place. Looks like fun. How do I enter the rabbit looked scales up and down and then laughed right in his face. Can you? Justice take you got new charms, you're hooking. Larvae? You best be lean. Got you. Softer spring rainfalls cozy, Dan when mother calls it's cleared a c. Best you. The song stung scales. Not literally like a B would sting the song hurt his feelings. Was it his fault? He had no arms or legs for that matter. Was it? His faulty was basically one long neck. No, no, it wasn't. And he wouldn't be talked out of the contest so easily. He slithered off his rock and into the crowd. Hugs were happening on all sides and already people were comparing notes about who hugged the best scales. A large colorful bird hugging. Anyone who happened by? He didn't have arms either. Well, not really he had wings, but did those count no scales? Decided no they didn't he slithered up to the bird and then raised himself out of the grass care to hug. He asked the bird looked. Up then the bird looked down. Then the bird burst out in squawking laughter. Slithering? Leave. God wings puffy feather, and they're trying any weather. Minute hugs glared. Scales? Had thought the song stung the first time. Well, it was even worse the second. Why would no one how him did it really matter that he had no arms was he really that poorly made scales. Didn't believe it. He wasn't made wrong. He was just a little different. And he just had to look a little harder. He slithered back into the crowd. It was starting to thin a little now as the real competitors met in the middle as he watched a giant bear hugged a lamb so well at the lamb himself declared the bear the winner scales thought about challenging the bear next. But she already had a line in front of her. What I mean thought scales is someone tough someone who will be up for a challenge. He scanned the crowd there a slinky. Bob cat was laying on a low limb nearby. She was spotted and Tani her first sparkling in the sun. And her whiskers drooping magnificently, she was perfect. Hello there. My fine. Feline friend scale said looking up to her on the branch, would you care to hug? Of color Cy would said the Bob cat. I'm always up for a hugging. Contest. She hopped down from the branch and landed gracefully on silent. Pause. When she saw it was scales who had challenged her. She started laughing those droopy whiskers shaking. And you. Charts making tons off alarms. You'll. You best believe. Common. Three. It's best. You lean? This you embarrassed scales. Just slithered away was he really not even worth it. Just because he had no arms. No. He couldn't believe that. He knew he could hug he knew it deep down in his heart. And he knew it fiercely he just had to keep looking he wound back into the clearing. Just in time to see the great bear win her contest against the wolf. Another win for me the bear called after shaking pause with the wolf there's a reason they call it a bear hug, folks. I'm just the best hugger going the animals had made a crown of gold and flowers for the winner. It's Sach shining on a sun drenched stump smiling. The bear scooped it up and set it on her head. I'm declaring myself Queen of the contest unless anyone else wants to dry. There was silence in the clearing. Nobody I wanna try. Oh, ho said that I did scale said on coiling and lifting himself into the air. I don't think I can match your softness or your for. But I bet I can hug tighter the bear laughed and all the other animals joined in. Snakes are known for their scaly skin. You best believe. These huggers pearly covered with soft and curly. Third of shortly. It's clear to see. It's best you. This time scales. Wasn't sad. This time. He was angry. That's it. I've had it he yelled you keep telling me, I can't do something. Just because I'm not like you. Well, guess what? I'm glad I'm not like you because you're all a bunch of bullies picking on a guy just because he's different. He turned to slither away. But the bear called out weight scales turned around don't get all upset the bare said if it means that much to you will give you a chance scales looked at her skeptically and the bear spread her massive shaggy arms. Let's see what you've got. Finally, scales lizard forward and wrapped himself around the bears legs the bear hugged in with her arms. But the snake kept climbing winding upward lightning-quick Ivy. He climbed higher his long body and circling the bear in great rings from chest to show the bear tried to lift her arms, but they were pinned to her side. Scales began to hug as Titus. He could squeezing the bear tighter. And tighter until he realized the bear was having trouble drawing a breath. Whoops, too tight scales. Thought unwinding himself quickly and letting the bear draw a deep breath sorry about that scale said I knew I could hug well, but I forgot that it's dangerous to hug too hard. The bare rolled back to her feet and laughed again this time it wasn't a mean laugh though, it was a good real laugh. Snacktime feeling very snug. It's one I get acting smoke. You're the winner. Best believe. It's not the way we acted wasn't right. Tried. To make you leave. Tried to make you. Sorry. We didn't let you compete. Agreed. The rabbit. We were quite wrong said the bird. It turns out you don't need Armstong. The Bob cat nodded in agreement. Just because you're different doesn't mean you can't keep up with us just do things in your own way. And there's nothing wrong with that. Agreed the bear lifting scales. High into the air, ladies, gentlemen. Everybody in between the first annual hugging. Contest champion of the forest. The crowd burst into applause and scales. Belted wash over him warming his body better than the sunny rock ever had. The Royal crown the bear called she took the crown from her own head and put it on scales. Of course, the snake didn't have ears anymore than he had arms. So the crown slipped down over his head and just kept on going. The Royal built the bear called, and they all laughed and cheered and together paraded off into the forest. The and.

Once upon a time in a quiet little stretch of American forest. They were soft white gray of clouds before a summer rain. Their names were MS Beekman, and Mr Pex, and they were old friends one day. The pair was relaxing in their favorite spot, an old weeping, willow, it grew on a grassy shelf hanging over a swift little river it had sun in the morning and shade in the heat of the afternoon bushes of bright red berries grew nearby, and they were the sweetest around MS Beekman liked to roost in the highest limbs where she could enjoy the rolling forest spread out beneath her Mr Pex had an old hollow he'd stolen from a squirrel. It's still smelled like old acorns, but the bushy dove didn't mind would you look at that said, Mr Pex one quiet afternoon, there's an aunt in the river. It was a small black ant, the kind you see all over the woods and at the occasional picnic. It must have fallen in looking for food. The river wasn't particularly fast. But it must have seemed a raging rapid to the little guy. It was flailing wildly. But it could barely keep its head above the water. There was a flutter of wings, MS Beekman, flap down from her Reuss to top the willow and settled on a branch near Mr Pex. Good morning. She said stretching her wings. What are you looking at down there? Mr Pex gesture down to the river with his beak. Look, there's an aunt in the river. Ms Beekman looked and saw the poor little ant. It was being swept away only it's tiny little antenna where peeking up over the water's surface. Oh, no what a poor little bug. We should go. Help him help him. It's only an ant not worth my time. How can you say that? Mr Pex, he's drowning. What has he ever done for me? Ms Beekman puffed up upset bobbing water. Like a Lotus on you said he's not worth noticed. Just because he has nothing of value to you seems to me the kind of act is helping gonna life on track. Thanks should be enough. Just the right thing to do save. A man who's drowning through autre on fire up those. Who stumble Hegna lips them higher? I don't know much about living. But I'll give it to yesterday being kind for kindness. Sing it makes you feel great. I'll be kind to an aunt when an aunt gives me a reason to be kind. If we all acted are worth waiting for France to be kind. I who would then set up and make our world a happy, you're home, far fine. Nice. Always and you'll find your home in hallways. Always full of friends on love that money just can own. Well, if you won't I will miss Beekman dole from the tree and scanned the ground searching, she couldn't swim any better than the ant. So she needed to find something to help come on a piece of straw, a stick something anything there. She finally spotted a dry old read that had fallen by the riverside. She swooped down and grabbed it with her talents. And then flapped back into the air here little guy, she called as she soared over the ant. Grab on. She dropped the read and it spun end over end and hit the water with a gentle splash, just in front of the drowning ant the river washed him into it. And he grasped at it weekly with all his sticky legs. But the river was too strong. He dipped below the water and vanished from sight come on little guy, MS Beekman called down. You can do it. The aunt pulled himself against the current one leg another another. Meanwhile, all around him the river raged, why does an ocean to the little bug from above MS Beekman saw an antenna poke out of the water, then the ants little mouth broke the surface, and he took a deep breath almost there with a heave the aunt pulled himself onto the read and laid their recovering soon the river, bent, and the read was swept against the shore the little and scuttled quickly onto the dry land. Yes, he made it said MRs Beekman as she fluttered back to Mr Pex, you see the little guys. All right. My so pose the old dove said still it seems an awful lot of trouble joss to say one little ant. What's the point MS Beekman puffed her feathers indignantly, well, Mr.? Pecs? I happen to believe that kindness. Doesn't need a point. If you're only kind when you think you're going to get something in return. You aren't really being kind at all Mr Pex puffed himself up right back. My think you must be sitting on an awfully high branch today to talk down to me like that call me when you save something that matters. And maybe I'll listen the two doves continued to argue their Chirps and squawks grew louder and louder. They grew so loud that a nearby hunter heard them and perked up he was out hunting ducks. But he hadn't had much luck. Still his shotgun. Full of pellets would work just as well on doves as it would on ducks. He got down on his belly crawling closer to the river where he heard the Chirps. It doesn't matter how big or small or important MS Beekman was saying being kind is its own reward. And you'd be surprised how often putting out kindness. Gets you more kindness back. Mr Pex snorted, no easy trick for a bird. It was an aunt dog waste my time with aunts the hunter crept closer. He saw them. Now too big doves one older and one younger they were sitting together in an old weeping, willow, close as they were he thought he might be able to get both with one blast of his shotgun. He slid the gun forward and look down the barrel. Taking aim your too young to understand and saw our ads a not a one has ever done anything for me. So what that doesn't mean? Ms Beekman trailed off was that a glint in the grass across the river. She looked harder it was near where the aunt had landed. But it wasn't the aunt. No was that. Oh, no hunter, MS Beekman. Cried she and Mr Pex both stretch their wings. But they knew it was too late. A good hunter could take down birds in flight as easily as birds on a branch still they had to try the hunter curse to himself as the birds began to flap still he had enough time to get at least one of them he aimed carefully swinging the gun slightly up and over he prepared to squeeze the trigger his finger tents, and then he felt a shock of pain on his knuckle. It made him flinch and his gun dipped low as it roared the pellets splashed into the water and some kicked up dirt on the far shore. None came anywhere near the birds. He muttered to himself and shook his stinging hand an aunt a little black ant dropped to the ground and disappeared into the grass. It had bitten him. Right. As he fired. He had been bitten hard. There was already a little red bump forming on his finger the. Hunter figured he must have laid on an ant hill. Oh, well, back to ducks. He thought trudging away that evening when they were sure the hunter had moved on MS Beekman, and Mr Pex returned to their willow tree by the water. Ma I have to apologize. Mr. Pek said bowing, deeply before MS Beekman if you hadn't saved that end. We surely would have ended up as that hunters dinner who would have thought that such a little creature could save so much with one tiny bite apology accepted thinks pal MS Beekman said whistling lightly in a happy bird kind of way. I hope you've learned that kindness is always worth it. Even for the smallest especially for the smallest your quite right. Ms Beekman, Mr Pex agreed and from that day forward. He always kept one extra eye on the river together with miss Beekman. He saved and grasshoppers and even a couple of spiders ignoring the chill. They sent up his back when he saw them the dove say to ever needed saving and even though the hunter never returned. Mr Pex found that his little. Corner of the world was a happier place as a result and his new way of thinking that was more than enough of a reward for anyone. The end. Today's story.

Once upon a time in a small village in ancient Ethan opium. There was a lonely young man by the name of able he had his friends shore. And he had his family, of course, Abel's life was very full. But he still felt there was something missing. What the young man really wanted really truly deeply with all of his heart was someone to come home to at the end of the day. He wanted someone to cook dinner with every night someone to laugh with and cry with someone to raise a family with and someone to grow old with able wanted to share his life with someone he loved and not just any someone able had someone very specific in mind. He wanted to marry Zala his oldest friend. She was kind and clever and strong, and she could always make him laugh able in Zala had grown up together. Over the years, they'd spent days and nights working and playing and learning together, and they'd always. Had the best conversations that is until recently ever since able realized how he felt about Zala he'd found himself tongue tied in her presence part of him wanted to tell her that he loved her and wanted to marry her, but another part of him was very afraid that she wouldn't feel the same way. And then their friendship would be ruined. Now when able and Zala were together Abel's mind would race with possibilities, and he felt frozen. Sometimes Zala would catch him staring at her, and she'd ask able are you feeling okay? And he would turn bright red with embarrassment and assure her that he was fine. But he didn't really feel fine. You should just tell her feel his friends would say sometimes they'd even playfully push him forwards in Deir him to speak still able was too afraid afraid of looking silly afraid of being rejected a free. Of having his heartbroken true. If he didn't open up to Sala, she'd never know how he felt. But on the other hand, if he kept his feelings a secret she couldn't reject him finally after long months of carrying his heavy heart. He made a decision he would go and speak not dissolve. But to mother Cumali, the villages, most clever elder and healer. He went to her home and was quickly ushered inside all around were peculiar containers of animal and plant parts there were powders. Bright, a spring and others dull as mud mother tamales home was full of smells and just when Abel thought he might place. One another drifted into his nose to mystify him all over again. Able you of never visited me before called mother. Come ali. She was sitting at a low table of dark wood carefully pouring a pink liquid into a Brown powder. Come and have a seed and tell me all about the girl your in love with able crossed the room slowly afraid he'd break one of her delicate displays or that one of her delicate displays would break him. Wait. How did you know? I'm hear about a girl. He said sitting on a stool across the table from the old woman. I can read the mood of an ibex clear across the plains. You think guy can't see heart sickness in the face of a boy, I watched grove from a sprout she set aside the pitcher of pink liquid and sprinkled some dried black seeds into the mixture. Now, tell me all about her. It was like a damn releasing. It was like the clouds breaking open with rain. Rain all of his love and admiration and fears about Zala tumbled out of his mouth the way her jokes could make even the crankiest babies and the grumpiest elders howl with laughter the way, she always had the best ideas and knew how to solve even the trickiest problems the way she never seemed to get discouraged or down for very long and made him feel like he could do anything in the world. He told mother Cumali all of it and more. And when he finally finished he found himself read and breathless all of that inside one little heart mother Cumali said shaking her head. No wonder I could see it on your face your in love. All right. Your in love up to your ears able nodded solemnly. Well. I have just the thing for you mother. Molly said, what is it is it a potion a love potion? I think I could tell her how I feel if I knew she felt the same way the old woman laughed. No child. Nada potion just go and talk to the girl Zala is out eating now in the shade of a tree. I'm sure sit with her and have a conversation. Why couldn't do that Abel said aghast? What if she rejects me what if she hates me? What if I mess it up? He dropped to his knees and clasped his hands in front of him. Please mother Kamali. There must be another way. There must be some magic something you can brew for me. Please. Mother Cumali looked at the young man and side one of these. I see all right. Get up off the ground. I just swept in here able hopped back into his seat. I do have one love potion, very powerful. Magic very difficult to make though I don't think you'll like it Abel's is lit up. Anything? Just tell me what you need mother, Molly stood slowly and tottered to her shelves picking up a bottle of this and examining dried gourd full of that. Finally, she picked up a tiny, glass, vile and peered inside Alicia. I have what we need except for one thing able was on his feet in a flash. What is it? Oh, go right now to make the potion a love potion to make it really something what tell me. You bring yourself out on mount he's tall and crepe along until alliance. Call. Up in Kano Iskar without die. Then up bad love potion. Pinch toutah. Mine. Kick out our Sanga that's been pickled in bride odd. One little whisker from agreed. Big throw them altogether. And watch the stars align will you got trouble with your confidence. Your lonely. Feeling chance. You're looking tickets, you feelings. So we'll make up that. Love potion from. The next day able set off for the mountains in those days. The lions of THEO peo- weren't endangered. And there were plenty that prowled the foothills where the savannah met the highlands. You could recognize an Ethiopian lion by their gigantic size. And they're dark black manes that stood out in stark contrast to the rest of their for which was a sunrise gold able had never hunted a lion before never mind tried to get a whisker from one like most normal people. He had done everything in his power to avoid lions. But he had to have that love potion. It would solve all his problems. So with his reckless useful bravery he pushed into the mountains ever alert. He was lucky and he spotted his first lion. That vary after noon. It was sunning itself on a large flat rock one PA the size of Abel's head. Was casually dipped into a nearby stream the great beast seemed to be sleeping able watched the gentle rise and fall of its chest until he was convinced. It wasn't about to wake up and gobble him whole. Finally, he made his move. He stepped up to the lion lean down. And then the beasts eyelids. Fluttered open it peered up at able with one eye of molten gold, and then growled showing it's big white teeth. Sorry. Able turned and ran all the way back down the mountain. He didn't stop until he was back at mother Kamali's house. He told her the story and she said to him a bowl if you want a whisker, you can be a fief a lion is too clever and strong for that. Even if you steal one without him seeing you he'll feel the pinch. And you won't get far. Try finding a way to be friend alliance. And asking permission to take a whisker now go and don't come back until you've got it able return to the highlands where the mountains met the savannah this time he climbed a tree and watched the lion after several days. He learned the lion liked meat. And he liked the son. He kept to the same area of the highlands and always always return to the large sunny rock in the afternoon. One afternoon when the lion returned it found able waiting with a piece of meat in hand able dropped the meat in the lions. Britt spot. And then went back to his tree the lion gobbled up the meat and then satisfied stretched out for his cat, nap able repeated this the next day and the next and then finally he dropped the Mead. But only retreated a few steps the lion. I'd him curiously but still ate the meat and stretched in the sun feeling emboldened able approach the lion and reached for a whisker. Roared the lion. And able was so scared he fell backwards with a thump the lion. Roar again and able scampered away not stopping until. He was sure the lion wasn't following. It seemed this wasn't the right lion. After all still there were plenty of lions in the highlands. And able was determined. He continued his search and found another rock with another lion. Many miles away he began his process in new leaving the meat and watching closely. This patients did not come naturally to able. But so strong was his love for Sala that he found it easy to wait. Finally after another week able approached the new lion as he ate this time. He did so slowly carefully and he spoke gently as he neared. I just need a whisker just one is that okay? Mr Lyon at first he thought perhaps the lion hadn't heard him. But then the beautiful beast looked up at able and offered him a small, and almost imperceptible nod Abel's is widened he took a deep breath and then reached for a whisker his hand was shaky but he managed to grab a hold of one and pull it gently free a wide. Grateful smiles spread across his face. Thank you, Mr Lyon. Think you the lion offered the same tiny nod and went back to his meal able turned and ran down the mountain whisker collect in his fist. Like, it was a diamond he soon burst into mother, molly's home, mother Kamali mother Kamali got the whisker. He held it up for her to see it gleamed silver in the light. You. What she sat down at her table and began to laugh, she laughed and laughed and laughed so hard her bottles and potions rattled on the shelves. What what's so funny able to mandated mother Cumali dabbed at her is there's no potion able what what do you mean? I just got this whisker. And how did you get it while I thought it would be really hard and scary. And it was I, but I was trying to move too fast, and it was the wrong lion. Anyway, the next time I realized I needed to take my time and make sure the lion trusted me. So it would. No, I wasn't trying to hurt it. And then obviously I needed to ask before I took the whisker. I was really nervous. The lion would get mad and say, no. But it worked out, okay? What would you have done if the lion had said, no mother, Molly asked will. I mean would have been disappointed because I invested all that time. But I can't make the lion. Give me it's whiskers that doesn't work. I guess I would have just had to start over with another lion. Yes. I think you already to go and have your conversation with Zala mother Cumali said smiling, gently able looked back at her stunned able ally and is not so different than a person. You have learned that you can be patient and kind and win the trust of another take a big risk when you truly care about something and survive, if someone tells, you know. Able sat mouth agape able does that make sense? Yes, mother Cumali. He said thinking and stroking his chin mother Kamali, even if there was a potion to make someone fall in love it wouldn't be right to use. It would it. It's like taking the whisker without asking mother, Molly smiled, all the wider and padded able on the cheek see how wise you've grown now. Go, you know, what to do Abel kissed her on the cheek and ran from the room mother. Molly laughed and sat back at her table. She picked up the lions whisker and turned it in her hands. Usually they figure out the lesson before they get the whisker. She said to herself shaking her head. Maybe next time. I'll switch to an alligators tooth. She put the lions whisker in a small glass bottle and placed it on the shelf, then still smiling she returned to her work. Able looked in found Zala finishing her lunch in the shade of marine Guitry. He felt his heart start to quicken in his chest and his stomach flutter with nervous butterflies. At least stall is not a lion. He said to himself as he walked up and sat down next to her Hayes, Allah. He said I brought you a tamarind. I know they're your favorite zealous face lit up. Thanks able that was really nice of you is something on your mind. Actually. Yes. Able said with a deep breath would you want to take a walk together tomorrow night? Like just me, and you maybe we could go down to the car Sada tree by the river. Able blushed and held his breath the car Sada tree was famous locally as the spot for young. Couples Zala would know what it meant what he meant. I'm actually busy tomorrow night Zala said and able felt his heart sink in his chest. He wasn't as sad as he thought. He'd be though just asking had relieved much of the weight in his chest. Actually, he felt better than he had in months. No problem. He said with a smile. Hope you have a good day able turn to walk away. But Zala called out, wait. Yeah. He turned. I just I promised my mom. I'd helped with my baby sister at night. That's all maybe we could have lunch tomorrow. Instead Mimi here at noon, and we can walk to the car Sada together for a picnic. Sure sounds good able said and his heart sword sword soared into the sky like a beautiful bird disappearing into the sun. What did he ever been afraid of he'd never needed a love potion? He just needed to be himself. He walked away grinning, like a fool, and he and Zala had lunch together. Next day and the day after that and the day after that he told her the story of the lions whisker, and she laughed and laughed long and loud. It was the most beautiful sound that able had ever heard.

Wonderful guest is Dr Sherman Boorda, who's a licensed marriage and family therapist licensed, mental health, counselor. And she has a specialty in substance abuse and medical family therapy for clinical focus is working with youths and family in the child welfare and foster care systems, and enter private practice. It's called the blue couch, and she's passionate about cultivating. A safe space were sent to conversations and stories of lived experiences can. Be shared Dr ward. Thank you so much for coming on the show. And vitamin me this is awesome. I want to hear all about you and how you became a marriage, counselor, and family therapist, and can't wait to hear about the blue couch start at the beginning. We're where's your store? Oh my goodness to start the beginning is going so far. But, you know, I think for me it started the blue couch, I didn't initially have an idea to start the practice right away. I sort of fell into the field of counseling and therapy, his I was in the foster care system when I was young in Asia out. And when I was about twenty one twenty two years old. But I sort of benefited a lot from being in the system, I wanted to use the system to my benefit when I realized that I can do that instead of instead of, you know, sort of looking at it ends a whoa, is me situation. Where I mean, a lot of times, it felt like that, you know, and I didn't always get the the best therapy in community mental health, and I didn't know that until afterwards, that I you know, I just knew at the time when I was in foster care, I was not able to release share my story in she what was going on with me with the clinicians that were assigned to me, because it was sort of a one way, way of thinking. And so a finally was able to get a counselor who was referred by what my judges I'm actually judge off author Birkin's. And he just found him in Illing that found a wonderful therapist for me. And she just became the best thing that could ever happen to me in the system because I was able to just be myself with her. She didn't, you know, Asala jobs, me or maybe feel like I had to do anything had to be anyone in. You know, other than why was you know as she didn't want to direct Mike story the way it fit for the field or the other people that were involved. She wanted me to be myself. And I think after having that relationship with her. I realized that I wasn't getting the best treatment before, and I just wanted to be like her, you know, I wanted to help kids in the foster care system, and I wanted to be able to be that there is that they can be their offense excels with with, and a person they can talk to and, and not feel judged by and not feel like you know, I was directing their story, and that they want, strong, resilience and so. I decided to go to school for, for psychology initially and then became interested in the field margin family therapy. And I've been hooked on that Denver since and became a licensed into health, counselor, and a licensed therapist and. And changing lives developed my practice. So that was a long winded. We do know gonna love him doing that. I find that so many of my guests in their past experiences. They had to go through some trauma drama Oma something in their own life. Yeah. That their triumph over that is what made them beat the best in their field. And why they chose to do this to change the lives of other p mind. You can't really. Be there if you weren't there, right, right either for the people weren't there for yourself. And, and all that you did with tenure spiritual selves, physical self your mental so under education to greet you to this point. And I might hear that and find such inspiration in that story. So that's, that's journey, and has been for sure, you know, and you know, people are hurting in they're having their own experience in life, and how they relate to it, and it's just, you know, to be able to have someone to, to people to have that space to talk about those things in non judgmental ways is important for field into the people. We serve so new to this in your clinical practice, you are you that council for other children in the foster care system directly bear, or they county what you're in. You're really good question. I am. I do have a practice that the practice is. Residential facility nonresidential. It is a practice standalone practice, but I have gone to different places to see kids and families. And I've worked in the field before I had my practice. I worked in field where I wasn't in home, therapists, and a therapist for group homeboys. And so I have been sort of I have been. There is who did in home work and saw him do that. Now. Mostly folks come to the practice, and I do I wanna say, I do work with individuals of, of the foster care systems, families outside of the foster care system and also couples as well, so I see a variety of, of individuals in couples and families across the board. What was in your heart? One of the most amazing success stories from some child or person on men were hundreds of them, one shore. I think, Well, I I just. You know I just feel like people are so resilient and they have this. They are, if you bring that out of them. I asked what you're listening, does you know what? Right. I think that sometime my idea that people come with there, because he forget, this forget, that they're strong and resilient. And so coming to, to therapy helps them remember back together this resilience straw, all warns. Beautiful fabulous on. God. However, the right. And that's your Nate golden nugget of truth down. You are in life, sometimes steals avenue. Gosh, you you're speaking, my language really Gillette. You just gave me chills. That's what it is. It's the same fitness, your machinery has to be strong sold to have a place to run around in here. I remind them that, that is still in there and is still in there. And so we tap into that. Yeah. No. And insulate out your tweet tap into that. And when they when, when the clients come in and are. Are able to really rediscover that or even discover that for the first time in Slyke, the best feeling I like dogs go on fourth of July my God, that anything and that's the joy. And sometimes it's, it's, it's sad. You know, because it's, it's like this is what I've been missing for all this time. And so we saw them go back and sort of recultivate how we can look at that as optimism and move forward in a way that useful and affective for them. Yes. But one that does happen. Yeah. Boom, right. Absolutely message or for us to redo what we observe that and be a mortar. Absolutely. Because we know we did something amazing in the lives of the spiritual wellbeing in so full. Mindset of another person. Yeah. It for the way this is why every person on that, especially all my guess they have something so missing in them. I just. Oh, I'm so moved by that. What's the most challenging aspect of your job? Who the most challenging I think the self care part for the clinician is, I think for me I, I sort of. I feel like sometimes I'm an impasse in that way. And I can take on this thing people sorrows and what they will end their, their happiness in Jordan. So all of it becomes a bit taxing, you know, appoint so self care for me is one of the most challenging part of what we do, because we don't always put ourselves first, and we wanna be helpers, always, we forget, that we apply therapeutic, I eight and free day, and that bike areas trauma, and all of that takes its toll so to be able to put yourself in a place where you can resource and refueled. So that you've been at, yes. Yeah. Use to reach your back at all day long absolutely in. And so that is the most challenging, because we often are, you know, one thing to the next to the next and unite lives outside of their well. So that becomes a balanced that we have to always look to, cultivate, and strike. More often. So what are some of your self care practices? They want try to. This is a fitness expert. Oh my goodness. You know, I, I have really been trying to meditate. I am also hypnotherapist. So I do my own sort of transfer at times for myself, I do take walks often not often as often as I would like a I don't love the Jim Jim, by my big you after.

It doesn't have to be gym work on a promise after class after radio show, I will share some of those of you and also therapy IRA therapist who also sees a therapist, so healthy and could to do there's a lot of stuff in your head that you yet cumulate from everybody else was your own. Experiences. Not seeing so you still see the person who helped too. I do too. I do we've, we've been as she had been my therapist since I was fifteen years old. And she continues I continue to see every once in a while. So I have a couple of terrorists, but I certainly go to, to my address with we need to have our own backup system of support as well. There's of so many other colleagues in fitness won't being that I work with or talk to or work out with in share, you know, methodologies of fitness in food. We all learn from each other. We all know from each other, we all help each other. Think of powered women, our greatest strength is staying powered in helping other people be more empower. Yes. As none of that cutting the us yeah, we're or powerplays. We are absolutely the new shift of consciousness on the planet. The power women speaking of the to movement were not sitting by early in our lives anymore. We're taking. Back that strengthen that respected in that Lavin in internal guidance at says, we are so much more. Yes. Yawn up. Go do it. Bring it out to the dry from that. Absolutely. Yeah. Right. Yeah. So tell us how you got the knee, blew couch. I'm still trying to hear about that might mind that come from while I didn't have a name for my practice to me before. And I didn't realize that I wanted to I didn't really hope to create a private practice initially. I just wanted to finish my program, and I knew I wanted to continue to help, but I wasn't in our rush to start a private practice because of all the business things that has a lot of the guy. And so when I decided to do that. I was really thinking about, I want her name that really represents that moves resilience that hope that MS not trendy you know, that it will have the time, it will. You know it with someone on and it will speak to someone and people will be curious about it, and that they have been and the blue pucks came from when I was, I have two daughters, and I was in relationship with their dad. That was not. So, at the end not so great, and we had to separate in for an I hadn't been working time, and I remember for purchasing this of my own money, and we had to swear, I sell a lot of my furniture to could people do to show by through those times. And so the blue couch was one of the things that I purchased myself in it became the loved it loved it was back in the day, when there was Jennifer leather, this was this sort of piece of furniture. That was a pull out couch. It was all the things we sat there we eight eight. We slept done at we did what we had to get all the love of beauty. Have love was. If you didn't couch for a lot of tears. And so when I was thinking about my practice I thought sitting on the. Couch and it was sort of the odd piece in my new home. Didn't I sitting to USA and be good on? That we'll take. No racking my brain. And then I realized I was sitting on my I was sitting on it in cal- represented for me, personally, resilience hope strums. You not hard times. We'll coming through those things in ways that you can find the, the hope in the smallest things. And so that's where the name who Cup. So when clients come in the coming off the where's the blue college? So I talked with them about their own strengthen resilience that you're going to have to get a blue couch. What day? So, but yeah, it becomes this about them, and about their own aspirations, in their place of maybe hopelessness. The how they can come through that. Yeah. That's wonderful. So it truly is a safe space. They can you share their story. I will have to say can tell about their lived experience. Cal when you wrote me your bio, your lived experience because they all are, but when we're struggling through them, it's kind of, like mindless. But when you read few how you have grown from yet what it was and what it taught you and help to pick yourself up from your bootstraps in March along in find that I think that, that is really. Oh my God. I think that's fabulous. So what are you most curious about going forward in your practice, in, in your hope for the future, with children in foster care, children in welfare, children in family in services in, in couples in all of these things that are your heart is bursting to heal when you wanna do, I think, you know, a currently work with an organization?

Ns Way works suffering some praise every once in a while. But I got a little bit before the show and you got a crazy story where we're at all that here in a second but I like every show to start out with Schering one entrepreneur lesson that you know that a new you watch minority so much as new business face. Some of they need to know or need right away. What would that be in and out Rupee Question Again Ryan? Yeah so if someone is new to being an option where someone's new to the living that life. What is one lesson that you would have them know what them to know right away responsibility? You have a requirement you gotTa Take Responsibility. This no one's job or yours have read them expanse freedom whether it's financial relationship your body your mind. It's your responsibility and no one's GonNa take you out of the whole no one's GonNa take you about the great if you get shot. You won't be there. You're going to be there laying alone you know. So that's how life is really not how entrepeneurship is now out of call on recently. And they were like any they don't they don't believe in my dream they don't believe and I'm like Yo it's your dream it's it's yours so no one. No one's going to do anything for you now. You may build a team. You may work with people. But that's because you're dream was so big that they're in that's a different your dream so big and that's why you want to be the leader. But they spend your so small. You're going to have to be so big that they're that they see a huge part of growth for them in division office. What's your dream sneaking? You're moving your Columbus in in June's autopsy me one way or another but what you'll is at Austin. Data's drew you're running towards right now. I'm on my death bed. I'm laying my best friend. I'm looking up to the ceiling. And I'm looking at the five five sprinkler. I might look at the fire sprinkler. How many how many ribbons does five sprinkler? Have you know what is out of that little little liquid? I like? I'm I'm at that point in my life. I'm thinking that far ahead. I'm that point in my life that all I can do the price sprinkler. I'm looking at him and I'm counting to have that much time. I'm thinking to myself. Was My life worth and my my determination to figure out my life was worth it. Ryan as that. I look back on the eight years. Eighty five years nine years that I was a part of something that creative massive change in the world not only just for my family the entire world that for decades you know have I've owned who is on a leader in personal development group. She ended like the late nineties started at Person Development Group in Los Angeles and my personal family had towns and Communication Ryan like we. My my dad was physically there but I didn't have a relationship with my mom was physically there but I just didn't have a relationship with my mom so I was in and out of the House. I was more spent more time on the streets than I did in my own house because y be with strangers when my my my home the block. I'm more closely now. This when I moved to California and share with you before when I moved to California a couple years ago I learned about the development group and I joined it and after joining get I then enrolled my mom to come into with my dad. Came in my brother. Came in my other. Species are people's my family came and now because of that person development group or connected where we got going on my brother's coming to La GonNa be with me. When I I understand what my mom's dreams where I now I know why you know what my relationship with. My father could have been like now. I have a relationship problem. I couldn't I love you to my bad. I'm telling you I'm twenty. Something can't say I love my dad but now I can't we have a close bond. Why because of that training. Now it's just because of that training or it wasn't because of essential essentially that woman making the decision to allow that training to be there so I give credit woman where credit's due where she divided put plant that training there now. She passed away recently. I'm talking about a couple of weeks ago. She passed away and many times. I just say I'm talking to my mom. And I just say thank you Marco. Because Margot was the reason why her decision and the decision to put their training there when no one wanted to do that personal development stuff that stuff. Is that stuff sad back then. That's that's the weird people because she decided to reason I'm connected to my family. I depending on Margot so my vision in the future. Is that the people who depend on me. Ryan that the in my vision and my team's vision that it comes through in progressing the world so I think there's a lot of people that are living in fear. There aren't living for that once. They crossed my path. Once they cross my Training wants to get into my seminar rooms. What they you might content. They're gonNA start thinking and they're gonNa say hey the on purpose living in purpose and I'm going to take action toward that. Why Listen Andy said that bit? I visioned that people like a large portion of the world says hey I credit it to andy. I'm moving in. So what was I look like? What are some of the core principles right if someone jumps into your training your your seminars right? That won't work in. They find you later. The end of the show working. Somebody can actually do. Because you've got a lot of power man progressing ticket DOT COM PROGRESSIVE KIT DOT COM. That's progression ticket. Dot Com with the the one of the core principles is van with by any means. Ever it takes. That's number one your target that vision by any means whatever it takes number two well. Mathu in this in. This example is have a goal so big only God can help have a goal so big only guy. I don't even know how to be listening. I promise you I have no clue how to hit the target. Only way I can actually target is dot can help sign the contract rocking. Liu So big that only God can help them recognize the process in order for you to really become successful. The opportunity that you're searching for is in the show. The third principle is opportunity is in the show up our south man. I didn't know better. I would say that you have spent a Lotta time. Mastering Yard sales. You come on man. You're the right to the action three separate times. You got the pitch down like this is a beautiful day. I'm commenting on this because to me. We had a conversation for jumping on for you to listen to as as you're listening to us right now and we both agree. The sales is the cornerstone driver. Every problem that exists in the world sales is what solves one hundred percent. That's I'm in marketing and sales marketing and sales. Because if you don't know if you know you you're so this little small man you're going to take a little bubble and I think I think when when people when when when people are moving forward and business the only care or put energy out for the little bubble. That's fucking selfish. That's the most selfish thing you can do is just to take care of your own little bubble. The I'm GonNa Take Care of my family. I said for selfish like Ryan. You've been very willing in your in your business enterprises but you you. I'm sure you may have realized that it was selfish that that all that. You actually did that that you realize that. Hey you know what I can be given back to other people because of the mistakes that you made and there's ways that grown and express that's who had that you're saying. Hey I can give it to the next book. That's where you had the podcast. That's what you bring people like your guests and that's why I believe you you might have been In two thousand eighteen fucking like you. The top of the top in the bar cast came minutes now. You may second pressures. I appreciate that received with open arms but I wanNA talk about your progression because you came from Rhode Island right small small state in country. I've never been there right. My hands up right now. I think there's like twelve people to live there and you were one of the twelve from the smallest town in Rhode Island. So what was your graduating class. High School people thirteen. Oh look my classroom is eight hundred. Eighty eight eight. No no the school with eight hundred. Oh I don't remember. It must like people yup and you hit your first nor home. Run like Ed. A crazy young age with opportunity dedication consistency. Like a whole bunch of adjectives. Our share your story on the come up really right because that's the fun part at two thousand and I'm working at Wendy's I tell you the part where where people kind of chuckle at me. I got five job so two thousand an eleven and eleven. I'm eleven I'm eleven three working at Wendy's Wendy's the fast food restaurants and I go and I said Hey. I want a better job when I slow at fast food so I go get a job at a department store. I'm a natural born hustler. Man I want something like get. I'm just is a natural food. So you're right. I asked the auto sales from from young age. Now now I was just being humble man but I I want them to go. Get it so fired all the time. You know what I want to like. Fried. I go get a job at a department store. I'm working there. They say. Hey if you were the most card membership card street it gives away the most card you get to work. You get a two hour okay. That's not out the cross everybody. I'm like Hey I'm gonNA give you a discount if you're gonNA get the car so I started being the one in the car a free card away and he got average people like you don't want one. You wanted to free all. I'm like no car putting your back here and I say choose your hours. I Work Sundays because Sundays. I get time and a half say. Gee I'm GonNa work on Sundays whole awesome. That and I'm like hey because I produced. I got what I wanted. Which was more money. Whoa okay I like this then I get fired from the job. I must be doing so good. Get five from the job. Then I said Hey I need another job I want. I'm still working on one of these but I want to get another job. I want to solve cellphone so I go to metro. Pcs NOT TO WORK. I metro pcs a free up on something. I try there. I get a job working. I metro and selling now. I'm I'm a natural born absolute and I go get customers and so the phone. I'm telling a bunch of phone. I'm two time Cy. Young men you rate rate tells how. `Bout you become manager. I want to get other people to do that. I said okay. That'd become manager now working at the slowest story. They wanted to bring that story a little bit higher. I bring that story just a little bit higher so I bring the store to maybe the maybe like six though fourth. I forgot what it whether then they sent me out to another store where I'm working on my own now and picked. That's from the twenty second store all the way up to the number two store. I'm I'm now eighteen. Nineteen Twenty nineteen nineteen. Th One believed him he just opened up my own stuff from sore. Look like I'm from the overweight every no way I can be. That's what he said. That's why you'll be successful. I believe in you and I quit my job working for. I said you know what at the a fear overcoming without the dots of of being failing. So you know what I'm GonNa take that leap of faith and I'm GonNa jump how much I the. I got two hundred bucks in the bank. That's Oh shoot that causes account. I remember that account that I when I when I was going to college at the winning every week how much when I called the bank. Yes seven thousand thousand the baser eighteen nineteen years ago. My everything an grand all of it in I think I seventy five cents like that. Then the next thing you know I gotta cellphones and now it was. Bills game became a cellphone. A small business owner at the age of nineteen June first rather fourteen. And I love the fact that you set the back story for. You didn't just become a cell phone. Sales Rep is a cell phone store owner. How long does he hit? Seven figures by like you wasn't like oh. I just had a store right like a look. Sales was a number one. He determines the marketing sales and marketing was a key determinant factor. Because you can't really expand if you don't throw Martha correctly and then you even if you mark correctly and you got the inflow and you can't sell it you can't expand either telling you what the marketing is. How important it is. Also the sales aspect is so important. Because if you can't sell them what you marketing for the so our prerequisite was that we got to get out of I get I get out of the red. I'm hitting hitting the pavement and challenging. I'm in this new. I'm I'm a new position because I I was working for Metro. Pcs metric customers coming in. I didn't have was committed to in Bennett shop. Even hang your hat on Metro. Pcs Our logo brand. Because they looked at me like with you fucking nineteen how about you? And so when I opened up right across the way I used to work and And it was a company called simple mobile ads. Go and get my customers. I go Greek claims smack in the face. Like I don't WanNa by phone for like with the help Piece I a couple of times so after a couple of weeks I'm over here for all at man it was sounding it was challenging but I think the difference between media in the most average. I like back then. I created the email. My can't quit. Indie people you can. You can actually emailed me a cat India. You must come on. I said to myself I will not quit. I can't quit. Average people will quit. I can't quit contract contract. And that has a way to yeah. Gotcha had a little bit of weight. You know the the lease with the mall itself but I just didn't WanNA quit man so six months then Sixty six I. Mother was challenging challenging. I don't I don't I didn't make much money the first month but six months and I made a hundred grand so after after I took a momentum that's when the Ball Rolling Down Avalanche. It's hard to. It's hard in the beginning but afterwards man that's avenue is going so then within six months and I make one hundred six grand a year later. I make my first million target. I you know I gotta go do something different part of the story that happens. I think almost all of us. All the glitters is not gold. Sometime you're crushing it. Small town right small minded people unfortunately not to stereotype rubbish as what happened to me in some places you hit the ceiling and there's envy there's greed there's jealousy. There's hey and if I remember from what you shared with me you got to experience some of that. Yeah I mean maybe even just like in like I remember someone in my family that was like asking me like Joe so how. How much is that Chris? Chris and I'm coming from a family. Where where we're making like twenty six hundred unit family together? Twenty four hundred a month have family or three thousand dollars a month as a family like all right now. I remember answering the question right now. I think I have an inventory. Fifty thousand dollars just inventory Because we had iphones at the time we it Samsung and owns and plus I own computers and own other shit you know cash registers and I have so I think just an inventory say we have about fifty grand plus all the other equipment that I am literally twenty years ago. Had this interesting this and still living Don in my head like it's still looking don like yo you recognize the position that you're in that. I was so numb to it. I was just in was in the most absolutely and then something happened. Though right 'cause you this is the part that is interesting because I did some very comparable you shut down the business to move across the country versus selling the business. What was that play? Why did you sign that the Senate ourselves so? I'm glad well I don't know if I'm glad because because it they're the good part of the bad part so so I'm at the gas station this time. My Ida Honda Accord I I want WanNa give this guy this nugget some of the people that listening right 'cause 'cause this very important when I first before I opened up the business right before right before opened up the business. I said I wanted a car. I was driving a ninety nine. Honda Accord Nineteen Ninety. Nine hundred four one from nine hundred four. That's the average everyday vehicle now. I'm in California. Man He got ninety nine Hundred Quarter Min. You're not living where I'm from where I live now but back home. The Ninety Nine Honda accord that was an average everyday vehicle. You Got Ninety nine two thousand whatever upgraded to I wanted to upgrade and I wish to like a two thousand and a four and four hundred and that the price tag on that deal with thirty five hundred seven thousand bucks and have to make the choice upgrade. My Honda accord or open a business. I remember going back and forth on my head and I that money so I went to The old guy that my phone store I said Hey I have the situation have seven grand. Sorry by car. He said you have a car now and he said I said. Yeah but I think he got a transmission issue or something you here I see. Yeah so works it. Just you know kind of skip stuff. And he said right to the wheels fall off best decision ever. That's never because I then because I then opened up. I'd been opened up the cell phone store and then within like three months I was able to afford my new car and still had a business. Now answer your question. Why why did I decide to close the store well? It was lack of lack of knowledge on my part. I me not going game more when I immediately. I went to my best friend. I'm at the gas station.

I get it I get it I we're GONNA put you in Orlando and that's when I started the speaking businessmen speaking round and that was three years ago. So now I hold seminars and conferences where I teach people the business strategies in the my strategy that really supported me my progression in my growth overall from from starting first business all the way to now especially what. I've learned to the mentor that I have and giving access to the mentor going to have to my audience through my seminar called the Progression Conference. So if I if I come to the rushing time conference or someone listening shows up. What can they expect it to take home one day to day three days? How long is the conference? What is what is going to be some of the takeaways for them. Though the biggest the biggest takeaway is GONNA so the biggest the biggest takeaway is going to definitely be what I shared with you earlier. Bandwidth by any means whatever it takes so they take the the mindset but most importantly they're going to receive the knowledge they're gonNA receive the now's the strategy of how to grow see. There is a system success. I found Ryan and everyone has its pulling hill. Wrote a book called think and Grow Rich Interview. The top five hundred. That's been in the early nineteen hundred something that right. And he found the common the non natives between all those people recognizing that there isn't systems to success. Now here's the kicker now for the early nineteen hundreds. That's a very powerful. I agree with a lot of it but there is new technology to grow at accelerated race. So I'm not going against Napoleon Hill. I'm adding Napoleon Hill has already had already created ensuring that the new technologies to really excel so I share that technology has the progression conference in. If you just wanted to find out just heard technology man I was I was just like what do you mean? We're talking about computer. Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. That's what that's what dodgy me. So this scientific knowledge so expense and I've been using it for last seven years and that has allowed me to go. Young fucking guy from the hood sewn running the large corporations in in coaching consulting with some of the biggest ransom date. I love it. And he's Ame your is your half is good podcast as you are on stage. It's got to be incredibly energizing and fulfilling to be in your presence at one of your Cox's like it interview. You just have you have this thing right. And I appreciate being able to spend time and share your brilliance with my listeners. Man I appreciate you Rob Ryan I really. I really truly grateful to be on your show man you know. I'm really glad you're phenomenal. I can't wait to go out to have dinner with you in Columbus and we get over there to have you be part of the progression. I mean that's your hometown. GotTa do do got a big especially in Columbus and I. We definitely going to have a conversation about the Alpha. And as you're listening you hit pause go to the show notes. You're gonNA see all the stuff about the progression the all the stuff that any and I've been discussing today. You see links to everything. That is his brilliance. I'll tell you he's just got this thing right like it. You'll see you've heard it in the interview. You'll see these social. You'll see it when you're with them in person and write knowing that a lot of you are local to Columbus. If you don't shoot any else you mean email connect you guys will get you set up to the to the conference itself and to shake hands. And potential break. Brevity was well. They arrive you so much for the opportunity growth important. It is for a that we come from you know you being in Columbus. I don't I don't know what part and I get to learn about WH- part I know. Columbus has some challenges as well. And it's what I recognize man if you don't progress like the world is moving so fast and so rapid with technologies whether it's it's it's physical technology like software and hardware or the mental technologies of growth. If you don't continue to move fast at an accelerated rate you will be left behind. This is why we see some people who are successful and they get stuck if you're GONNA get stuck. There is a new technology on how to advance faster. I teach people at the progression conference. I don't I'm excited to learn. I'm excited to show by my tickets. In the Momma get there. I don't like sitting in the back right on one of those. You gotta give me one of the front aisle seats about I get on the. Vip Get the V.

on behalf of my new movie playing with fire I'm donating five hundred thousand necessary cynical could he have just given them the money you could have done it great consistency to them don't you can mix them does know that bruins perfectly good mashed potato and I'm on a spoon nations why but he does have a movie coming out next week where he plays a firefighter K. playing with fire right it's not reached out to see if we're okay here where we are Luckily Eddie and myself and carry in a liberal safe were were far away from the fires yes still there are a lot of people here in California who are agreem- will rose goodstuff vomit to this day in history Ayman's pool by Ralph recently he's dropping you pick up his donation where he left it off saying he would like them to matches donations made the following statement on behalf of my knee Kevin Hart has announced he is not suing the driver of the car that was involved in that accident that broke his back isn't the driver him yes accident by driving recklessly it was one hundred percent his fault right but Kevin Hart is said he's not gonNA sue him he's not even going to file a claim with jared's medical said in a public announcement I'm just saying that he could adopt under a thousand or fifty pounds also have done it anonymously and not said without ever mentioning the title of his upcoming plays a fire I guess or is there a little tiny smidge of Agnes Dick mentality it's not it's not a coincidence that he is making a big public showing of the support for firefighters when next week he's got a movie coming L. where he plays that's really cynical is it yes he challenged paramount pictures by the way the studio behind his new film film playing with fire and out of respect to the people who I truly believe our heroes my response to the fires will be to immediately donate five hundred thousand dollars to this 'cause he makes it Ironic Kevin has now she does not intend to sue the driver jared black who they see hp by the way California Highway Patrol have determined caused the in the car they probably wouldn't even put them then how can he soon if he wasn't wearing a safety belt because he didn't have the option because there wasn't that's three point harness zero they're delicious it's like you're eating a ball of grass it's what it tastes like I've all eaten like grass roll up in a ball that's not it Autho plate you can't get them on the spoon because they roll you actually have to put them in the mashed potatoes so you can get a hold of the PS and the spoon because a little fuckers I want to be there's a good guy he is a good guy however I hate to to cast aspersions aspersions are dispersed versions I hate to question his motives not going to even sue his Insurance Cup but the guy's suing that's the funny part Jared black the driver has lawyered up and is suing Kevin for not having the losing their homes and having to be evacuated and just going through an Arnold Lebron exactly if arvin liberal bronner inconvenience yeah you can imagine how it comes to this donation what if he gets people going to the movie to see that and they maybe people have become firefighters maybe he's trying to inspire people to become fire you're right that's probably why he made that and there is traffic on the one ten we were stopped in traffic and do we get smacked from behind by a guy who obviously just wasn't paying yeah yeah here's the funny part no one in the car was even wearing the safety about the safety the seat belt version the waste bellwood had anything no one added on so even if there were harnessed that's a reference hey there it's Ralph garment here I hope you're enjoying the show happen car and he opts out of the car and we're looking at the damage it's not that bad but it's it's obvious it was all pushed in and banged up pretty good so he said proper safety harnesses in the car installed when he had it what do you call for whatever renovate renovated Insurance Company covers medical bills he's going to pay for them out of his own pocket because this guy have on Kevin Hart I don't know I mean Kevin Obviously has enough money to take care of unnecessary but he said he's that information and when I got home there was a text on my phone saying Sir I'm sorry I hit you tonight Ligo is done and I sent that to the insurance that's why insurance premiums are through the roof gaming the system makes more sense I gotta go to a hearing in December for what I was hit from behind on the freeway by drive your Mustang No in the my wife drives my wife and I were coming home from an event speaking of celebrities and legal suits took up pair of singer songwriters rather are suing Taylor swift for using the phrases backed up into him on the freeway he refuses to pay for the damages to my God thanks act up on the onto the freeway sue him here's the thing we issue that's a great idea and you're making note from us no not make any no next law aiding baby food P baby row report P tomato inspire don't don't ruin this you're ruining wrestling is fake it makes you think everything is fe that's what I'm saying it'd be cynical formation and we'll just let the insurance companies Sorta so he hit me from behind his obvious that he's at fault he's doing for what saying that here's going to hate and players GonNa play because they said they wrote a song in two thousand and one called play is going to play and so they created the concept of players you take a car and you bring it back to its former glory stored or restored yeah there you go it's Kevin's fall because he didn't have the shoulder harnesses put that's but soon back this is the problem this is why people this is why insurance is so expensive because people don't play by the rules yeah all right soon this do this do now apparently this dudes Fiancee is good friends with Kevin Hart's wife it's personal trainer and so there's all kinds of stuff going on the nobody when I filed the claim so I figured I'd never hear from this guy again but no he's actually he's going into court to fight the thing it's done he's got the tax I know so you don't let's not do this through insurance man I'll just pay you it's like I said you know I'm not I'm not messing with it because here's the thing you do that and then you gotta chase the guy down and say here's the here's the more often than not it's not going to play out the way dozen their brains and so it's automatically a failure angry nerds speaking of game of thrones the duo that invented that TV series accordance low so it's bad news for a lot of game of thrones fan because they seem all pretty upset when they didn't like the last season they've had enough here's the thing you can't make those people happy and it turns out they now are leaving the project as well they will not be associate wonder if that has to do with Kevin Feige taking over star wonder if that's sort of pushed them away I told him don't don't do that please because she's my guessing while I wonder if they can't afford it so he Kevin gave him the green light go ahead and sue me and that way my insurance and all that happen to start a star Naomi Watts they did a pilot apparently and it was going to take place a thousand years before the current timeline of events in games thrones during the age of heroes this is all means nothing

Yeah we're going to set up the next trilogy he's a player's GonNa hate now she said GonNa play play play associates hate hate hate us the phrases guy suit to other people with songs with the same phrase in its saying they invented it and lost those shoots so we'll have to see whether this one holds I guess he's trying to throw anything against the wall once again just trying to make sure I make a bug cash for that level knowledge with the got my head spinning faster than drunk heady number rocking the backing track with a replica bad celebrity Kuban loves Beets Patel the Marvel and stars Lucasfilm was like let's have your magic touch Lucasville yes these guys got pushed out but they say they're still fans they hope to participate in some way they just won't be oversee you used our players GonNa play a hate is GonNa hate switch the play in the hey well I don't know what they did by the player's GonNa Bass player's GonNa play seven or it may be that we can't doesn't have to pay for my insurance company and maybe make a couple of bucks right that sounds more likely it's fucking evil if that's True Ryan and hate his Hayden and she uses it in her song shake it off haters GonNa hate hate hate hate hate and players GonNa play play play play pipe and so they say you always money because seat for the repair where's my check and maybe maybe here's a reason why everybody has turned screwed so I say to the guy now let's just so you didn't really grow up with a baseball team not really though but but your senators fan on the lesson I mean a poll for I'm not like a die hard national because I didn't I'm doing just too busy when the money was right all of a sudden he had we've we've decided to part ways I know you've got fired yeah exactly no one's tells the truth I think it's because he came aboard looking for just Su Su Su Su is going to do it we're going to sue turns out litigating going to litigate game of thrones prequel the HBO was planning on is not going to happen he doesn't play Mandolin it is he's the author at the Bay where where people hurt people they do hangs on a Cantina because he's a he's a scum and Villainy and he's a bounty hunter is about one hundred I think would you agree waiting for you complicated process Linda Laurie outside it's peaceful sincere revolution it's a shame aw this week and people are talking about it of course they are because there's freeze framing it and examining everything that goes on like they want to do here's the audio for the mandatory auto buying vegetable as well my parsnips you can get boiled par sex at Nebulous Star tits restaurant aw thank you roll and stopping by joking on my own saliva as well that looks so wonderful let's take a look the idea of the Mayor Delorean and I love the fact that they recognize that apar- sack is a is a is the distance not time even though elemental the ground like skulls show yourself my own saliva I'm so salivating actor Harry Hamlin is sixty eight years old today he of course was on la law and he was also clashed lead singer for Jefferson wheelchair she is eighty years old when the album he had the big hit song called love will keep us alive and these great voice you too they are in the capital of for this shit this is going to be the best thing ever I love it doc owns is fifty nine still move occurred all my God looks so amazing I cannot wait they sent to you were coming they sit you're the best in the persic celebrity birthdays all these born on this day October Thirtieth Henry Winkler the fonz seventy four years old and of course he's so much is it yeah well let's by all means debate we don't know if he if he just stole the arm or h really wasn't mandatory Oh my God well the pilot the trailer rather drops In politics is sixty two years old today guys a Goddamn national treasure comedian actor impressionist Hod caster he's having the life that I want wiped out during the the empire's reign was Boba Phat Amanda Laurean he's from Django Fed he's direct clone Django Django Fat Abe that's up for debate actor Gael Garcia Bernal from Babbel in the motorcycle diaries forty one actor Charles Martin Smith towed from American graffiti.

Wherever you train for thirty days at T, N, T, H USA, Andy dot CC slash theory. These installment is cold bad recomendations, Facebook, you can maybe convince yourself that you have a sense of where things are going because Mark Zuckerberg said this thing one day, and then the other thing the other day, but Facebook should be understood as this completely disorienting and confusing big cloud that we all wander through all the time, and you YouTube really feels that way. And that's why people on YouTube are, you know, legitimately sort of unsettled by the place where they exist because there is no one to point two. John Herman writes about media technology in the internet for the New York Times. He might be my favorite critical voice when it comes to making sense of the big tech platforms. But one platform he admitted to me is almost impossible to make sense of Google's video platform YouTube. You know, they wanna make money, but that's all you know, you don't know what they want from it in a long term. You don't know how it fits into their vision for the company. You don't know how it fits other vision for the world. You don't know what they think it's four. It wasn't some like glorious democratic project to arrive at the solution for how we're going to run our attention economy. Just happened this way. And it's not becoming more transparent like it's important to their business than no one knows how this works. They need to hide that information from the advertisers, pay them from the creators that make stuff for them who you know, they fear would manipulate any structure. They're actually aware of. It's totally crazy making. Okay. It might be impossible to unequivocally say what you to wants or what YouTube is for, but we can run experiments to better comprehend the nuts and bolts of how the platform works. It's hard to sit back into look at the whole YouTube, but you can understand what YouTube incentivizes by just sort of plugging subject into it today. We're going to learn how to sell on a today. I'm going to be showing you one simple way to build muscle twice as fast. So today, I'm gonna show you how to make the most perfect soft boiled in hard, boiled eggs. It's a place where you can like go and search how to do all sorts of things. And if it's relatively easy to put on video, you'll probably find someone attempting to share that it take both strands of the shoelaces. And you do a once crossover that becomes a really strange tendency when you're talking about like, politics or ideas, you know, a guy sitting in front of his camera explaining how something works in in twelve minutes is a really great way to learn HUD, alike. Lace up a bike wheel. It's not maybe the ideal format for asking. What classical liberalism is increasing numbers of people in the public sphere. According themselves classical liberal, what is it classical liberal? It sounds like someone who's a liberal, but perhaps a bit fancier, maybe sporting, a top hat poorly mustache, a monocle. It's a place that doesn't send is the the kind of explainer or just the person giving it to you straight or whatever that works there, regardless of what you're talking about more or less what it produces in some cases is. What you would hope it would produce. In other cases, it produces something really fucked up. Deliver on its promise. And instead created a system where different factions now compete for soft power hitting different groups of people against one another while securing power for themselves. One of the easiest ways to show up in recommendations around a particular videos to respond to it, and how do you respond to common? Search queries about politics. You declare them to be, you know, wrong fathers were wrong. John Locke was wrong. Hobbs was wrong. Berkeley. Was rod humas Ron Adam Smith was wrong. You never search or you never end up in a subject area. Even in find a whole bunch of healthy actual discussion or debate about something you find people zeroing in on what you to wants and making it making something closer and closer to it. I won't fucking tolerate liberals. I will not. That's just really believe that good is evil evil is. Braces, the irrationally of its entailed outworkings, the noxious odious and self righteous. Social Justice words, the other historian, frenzy and derangement that we see coming from these corners of our society about the final gasps of a dying belief system. You don't need to spend that much time on YouTube to see that the platform prioritizes videos that are engaging in buying gauging. I don't mean celebrity cast or Hollywood budget. All you really need are few conspiracy theories some controversy hateful rhetoric and a camera, man. Talking to camera is one of YouTube most engaging formats, they're fifty versions of person talking to camera that work well on YouTube in service of different things. But certainly the person giving you the real truth about something staring into the camera is is a whole category that real truth might be about. Something really low stakes. It might be about everything. Big. Thank you to the YouTube algorithm for deciding to put that video on the homepage of YouTube. This is basically the equivalent of YouTube is looking at my channel we're gonna we're gonna make it rain on you YouTube pays its users to make engaging videos. I'm very happy that I don't have to worry about paying rent some YouTubers make a living or may not notice that I am in a new badger. Some YouTubers have even gone talking about how you can get paid doing videos and stuff like that. And just this process that you have to go through. But again, the processes behind these economics are Opik, they are YouTube trade secrets. What John Herman's helped me finally understand is that YouTube paranoid style is not just the views of some of the right wingers on the platform. It's the economic uncertainty of the platform itself. Even the most optimistic pro YouTube engaged, people they still eventually end up talking to their fans about the economics of YouTube about how they don't know. What's going on you see charts, they say, well, you know, I quit my job this point in two thousand sixteen in the line was supposed to go this way. But it dropped here. And I'm not sure what happened. So I haven't made a video in a while just want to give you guys update about what's going on here. And like every youtuber has a strain of this in their presence. And then, of course, YouTubers who talk about this all the time. Maybe they're like guru types who are trying to help other YouTubers or make money off other YouTubers. Maybe there are people who want to add an edge to whether already doing and point out that yes, they they live in this place that might be persecuting them. And who knows it might be persecuting them. Hey, everybody. It's Brad with the big family homestead. And in this video. We're talking about some stuff that's going on behind the scenes with YouTube. We found that a significant portion of your channel is not in line with our YouTube partner program policies this video number two covering the D monetization of this channel, my YouTube channel, very YouTube channel you are watching right now has been de monetize every single video. I ever voted husband Dimona ties, you don't speak with I watching to speak with you. My carry game, the panic company. They can do they Lang bullshit. Google's monopoly. There's no competition to YouTube. Lots of people have been de monetize. So there's this constant war in some sense. That's going on. Now you to claims that they're doing that to protect their advertisers. But when it's when it's tangled up with with the desire to censor and the desire to make the world, a nicer place. Let's say whatever that might mean. Then it becomes a big problem. That last voice. You heard is Jordan Peterson a central figure of what has come to be known as free speech YouTube. Jordan Peterson's also pretty central to this miniseries that we're doing here failure te'o. Ie's Andrew Calloway has spent a lot of time with Jordan Peterson. And he has something very important to tell you for the first time my entire adult life. The conservatives actually have something to sell young people. They could sell them responsibility. It's like well why because that's where life has meaning with responsibility. The first time I watched Jordan Peterson video was before the intellectual dark web before his best selling book twelve rules for life before his videos turned him into a multimillionaire back when he was just a psychology professor posting lectures on YouTube, and my friend Mark sent me some links. It's like Homer Simpson said, the Bart. He said to Bart you tried and failed. And then you try to new failed. Again. What did you learn? And and Homer says to Bart. The conclusion is never try. Mark told me Jordan Peterson was really helping with his depression. But these videos were just not connecting with me. I just felt like standard issues self-help stuff. But then I clicked on another one I think the idea of white privilege is absolutely reprehensible as he veered into politics. I started to get kinda grossed out what's happening in the political. Correct. World is destroying the universities. And it's invading the rest of our society and the idea that there's something good behind it. That's a dangerous idea. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised by maga- loving cousins sending you this. But I was shocked that my good friend. Mark was they s j w phenomena is associated at least in part with the rise of women to political power. Mark was one of my best friends. I've known him since I was twelve he had to understand that going after social Justice warriors and man-hating feminists. Just not my thing. And I didn't understand how it become his thing. I mean, I thought we were both into Occupy Wall street and supporting Bernie and socialism, but suddenly he was sending me stuff. Like, this Marxist ideology is very good at Attling the week binds of idiot intellectuals. So I responded to this one in kind. I sent him an article about how Jordan Peterson's ideas about Marxism being stupid are themselves stupid. But he took it really personally he was super pissed off. Made me wonder why was Mark being so defensive is this tour Peterson guy like some kind of cult leader. Stopped arguing with them. I just watched in horror as he posted Jordan Peterson fueled rants on Facebook after years of traveling together working jobs talking on the phone for sometimes four five hours a week. We were not connecting anymore. I just didn't know how to respond when he said he was tired of feeling guilty for being white and being unfairly judged to be a predator. Just for being a man we didn't speak for a few months. By the social Justice online. And then I got a call. My friend Mark have a psychotic break the newspaper described it as a bloody rampage. He attacked a woman and was killed by the police. There was no suicide note. No manifesto. I was shocked. I was devastated. None of it made any sense. Except. That I couldn't stop thinking. I lost my friend to Jordan Peterson. I know it seems crazy blaming a YouTube celebrity for what Mark did it's just like blaming violent movies video games or death. Metal. And I know that there are millions of Jordan Peterson fans not going on rampages. But I know one who did. So when a few weeks ago, another friend called me and mentioned that her teenage son was getting into Jordan Peterson. I sprung into action. I immediately went to the place. That would help me. Explain jordan. Peterson is seriously a red alarm dangerous thing for your son to be getting into. It's the same place. I go whenever I need to learn how to do something you to a lot of leftists to responded to Peterson haven't really engaged with his ideas very much. He's often caricatured of voided or talked about this is the YouTube star contemplates real name Natalie win, her whole channel is dedicated to debunking and responding to a lot of the right wing bullshit. That's huge on YouTube right now. And she has the best Jordan Peterson explainer out there. I'm starting to think we may need to take this guy. Seriously. He's got a lot of fans on YouTube. And I hope you guys are here because I want to talk her videos our next level. She spends a lot of time talking to the camera, but there's also like some serious filmmaking. Going on with the sets lighting, costumes. I mean, this is really special like right now, she's getting the bath to have a conversation with a cardboard cutout of Georgia. Temperature the oil, and I love that. She calls him daddy. It's just perfect. I mean, sometimes boys just need a daddy. And sometimes girls too. But she's not just funny. She's also a great to bunker, hence, the name contra points. She goes point by point explaining why Jordan Peterson's assertions about Marxism Postmodernism, and a whole host of other topics are wrong, really helpful stuff. If you're trying to bait one of his fans, I wish this video had been out when Mark was around. Maybe this could have created some common ground between us. He would have really liked weird shoes. I make you do videos because I enjoy mood lighting and set design. So what do you people want from me what I really love about? This video though is that she has a super clear explanation of what makes Jordan Peterson so dangerous. All this life coaching is basically just a Trojan horse for reactionary, political agenda. Here's advocates and ethics of self-help not merely as a guide to private life. But as a replacement for progressive politics, this is one hundred percent how he got. To mark. Jordan Peterson may seem innocent from the outside, but it gets really dark inside his Trojan horse biological differences between men and women express themselves in temperament and unoccupied choice in force. Monogamous relationships have multiple levels of the sociological hierarchy you at culturally. Do you do an expectation legally? There are strictures put in place to punish deviation from it. So I don't see any regulating force for that that terrible seminar, and it seems to me to be. Invading the culture and undermining the masculine power of the culture in a way. That's I think fatal. It's crazy. And it's dangerous. It's dangerous. There's actually a whole bunch of YouTubers trying to warn us about what's going on inside drew Peterson's Trojan horse I've been collecting the best videos like this one by guy named Peter coffin who breaks down the bayton switch really, well, you will find platitudes that tell you that all you have to do is get yourself together. Young man and off decide they're these little needling implications that women may actually of be the problem what he's talking about are the implications that Peterson himself makes but when these videos are on YouTube. There's also literally these things off to the side, you tubes recommended videos. This is the real danger here. Let me show you what I mean. Clean up your room. That's a good start organiz your local landscape so came here on you too. And I'm watching a Jordan Peterson. I think this may have been one that Mark sent me back in the day. It's an innocent one. It's just called Jordan Peterson clean up your room. Now, I'm gonna go to the sidebar over here. And I'll click on another Jordan Peterson video recommended by YouTube. It's called female hyperbole, and it's a fact on human evolution human emails. Engage in hyperbole and high perga- me is women made across and up dominance, hierarchies manmade across and down. In case, you're not in the men's rights movement. You may have missed this term hyperbole. They're just saying women are gold diggers. And the sidebar YouTube is recommending a whole bunch of DO spout. It all click on the rational male, high perga- me is unique to the female hyperbole is defined by two things. It's defined by album, FOX and beta bucks. Now, this idea that ALPHA's Fook women while betas simply spend money on them. This is a rabbit hole. Mark definitely went down one time. He told me he was going no fat no longer masturbating. So he could be more horny and hence extra aggressive with girls at the bar. He wanted to be an alpha you need up the alpha. You don't need to worry about so much hog. I'm the hold her hand and make sure that she's safe and secure from here YouTube is recommending exposing women's hyperbole the red pill women don't care about us. It's not just your girl or your wife. It's all women out there. It's just in their nature to not care about us. They don't care about us guys. I I don't know. I also put it. We are the expendable jet. Gender. Can you imagine being thirteen year old boy and you're struggling with girls? So you look to YouTube for help, and you're told step one clean up your room step to the in alpha step three Daryl's, mama slip yomas, if you watching this you got a girlfriend. She's not by right now. She's probably fucking just a symptom. They're all slicks all of YouTube chief product officer recently acknowledged the so called rabbit holes exist, but he insisted that they are insignificant. Well, what is significant is recommended videos make up seventy percent of the time people spend on YouTube. So just in case, you're still not ready to say this as dangerous, I'm gonna do it. Again, this time let's start with the video Jordan. Peterson destroys Islam in fifteen seconds. There's no distinction between church. State in Islam, and then I'll click on a Ben Shapiro the myth of tiny radical Muslim minority. Unfortunately, it's a myth. That's going to get a lot of civilized people tend from here. I'm getting the truth about Islam. Phobia Islamophobia have been weaponized to characterize all criticism of Islam as racist. And I'm here right now looking at that video, and what YouTube is recommending is called some honesty about Christ's church, the New Zealand mosque shooting, we ally shed a tear for the victims. No, the victims weren't of my people this nationalist youtuber, blame the terrorist attack on the political correctness of liberal politicians. They lectu on what you Khan and Khan sale and how and what you should feel when the destructive consequences of their decisions emerge. They'll blame everyone but themselves until continue putting everyone in our countries in danger. Next stuff is false flags. New Zealand mosque shooting exposed must watch. But I'm not gonna watch that. I don't think anyone should be watching any of these. But that's not what YouTube thinks in fact, they recommended it to me. Yeah. We'll kindness is the excuse that social Justice warriors use when they want to exercise control over what other people think in say Jordan Peterson has a tantrum. Whenever anyone tries to connect him to these extremists with their hateful video on the day of Richard bution. Slaughter every single spoiled stuck up blonde. Slut I see inside there. But on you to the connection is plame as. Equation to me. Fear of something with our culture. Torrential patriarchy him the true alpha male. After all this YouTube research, I was feeling pretty good about convincing my friend and her son Jordan Peterson is dangerous. But just as I was logging off I clicked on one more video it starts with Jordan Peterson reading a letter from a fan our daughter entered her life at twenty four depression, if someone is determined to end their life, how can one change their mind? A well. First of all, I'm very sorry about that. That's a terrible thing. Look. I had this friend. Her. Lot of depression in our family itself. Question that cuts close to the bone. You can listen to people you can desperately encourage them to seek the help they need. It's worth having a war with someone if they're in dire straits, and they won't do everything they can to get better. You could be there for them. You can listen you can watch you can intervene. Could try to understand you can hold them accountable. You can do all of those things, but you can't rescue everyone. And so sometimes a catastrophe occurs. People get sick. And they die. I can't really explain why. But for some reason this video helped me realize that this whole time I've been wanting to blame Jordan Peterson for Mark dying. What I was really doing was played me myself. I couldn't I have argued with better. Why couldn't I have kept him from going down that road? Maybe five been the little more patient. Maybe I hadn't been so judgment. Maybe in a better. I could have helped. Maybe he would still be alive. Look. You're you're blaming yourself for the for your granddaughter suicide. It's like are you blaming your husband? Are you sitting him down in telling him? What are you useless bastardy was as grandfather because his grand daughter committed suicide and how he failed completely. No, I'd never do that. So I said well. Don't do to yourself. It's been a pretty rough six months for me. And this video it's actually the first thing that's made me feel any better since marked my family, my friends, even my actual therapist. None of them have helped nearly as much as this Jordan fucking Peterson video. I see. Now why Mark was so defensive about Jordan Peterson. He gave Mark validation. Absolves him of the peach shirk he sins and made him feel less guilty. I think of Mark like a child soldier who pledges allegiance to the warlord that saved his life in Dr Peterson admits there are plenty of Mark's coming to him fits like, I was depressed. I was addicted to drugs. My relationships were working out. I was hopeless. I didn't have any goal. And I just wanna thank you for helping me. Dr Peterson says around three fourths of the letters. He gets are from fans experiencing deep suffering psychiatric disorders and mental illness. I understand now how he's become the YouTube therapist for so many people who are searching for help. But on YouTube. They're not getting help. They're getting recommended to hell. You have been listening to Benjamin Walker theory of everything this installment is cold, but recriminations.

LifeLabs data breach

"This is a CBC podcast. Hello I'm Jamie and this is a podcast from the December nineteenth edition of the current. I just like to start by letting customers know that. We're sorry this happened. We know that they've they've trusted us with their information and we may have shaken their confidence. And we're going to do everything we can to win that back. Health information is important and we don't take that responsibility ability lightly so that's life labs president and CEO Charles Brown addressing. What's being called an unprecedented breach of data earlier this week? The company Canada's largest chain of diagnostic labs revealed the personal data of an estimated. Fifteen million customers was stolen in a cyber attack in October. The information included everything from passwords to home addresses to medical test results. Mr Mr Brown also admitted the company paid a ransom to retrieve the data. And he had this to say about why it waited weeks before informing its clients and the public most organizations. What they would do is they would wait until the investigation is complete? We actually felt that we needed to get infrastructure structure in place to notify our customer. So we've set up a micro site. We set up a call center. We've worked out a package of cyber benefits. They can go and get fraud protection and those sorts of things. We're actually moving fairly quickly. But not everyone is satisfied. With the company's Response Graham Ram Williams is a tech expert with the media company get connected he is also a life labs customer. We reached him in Vancouver Polo. Graham for Jimmy. Thank you so much for joining me this morning. So what what do you make of the way life. Labs has handled this breach. This sounds like a fairly standard approach. you know This round and said that he's getting ahead of the issue here For a lot of Canadians I think looking at this. This is Kinda the bare the minimum that they could be doing You know this is essentially you know our our personal information worried whether it's so you know you're using your password which is quite concerning to. Here's a database information that may have been available Right down to your your health records so Test that that you may have had happened at lifelock is I it's it's pretty frustrating to hear that this is where we are. Did you think the company should have told its clients sooner. I'm not sure there. There would have been an opportunity to tell us any suitors. There's in this You know typically when you receive notification that an attack like this has happened there are probably a few things that are going through. Everyone's had their one is this. Legitimate Jesuit You know it sounds like this was a cyber locker attack. Essentially an intrusion into the network happened and a piece of malware typically what ends a being used on the network which finds critical systems and locks them up with Essentially cryptography the problem. There is that you can't get access to that anymore anymore. This is what this is sounding like right now. So you know they're they're looking at that and going okay. We need to verify one. This is actually what happened to these. Are The people that are responsible and three. How are we going to deal with them? So you know for all of that to happen there. There's usually a short period of time where you gotta go through that entire process so it can be challenging to go through that and then also have response ready for people like me. Who would be upset that something like this happen? Well let's talk about this for a second year. Customer of Life Labs NBC and and how concerned or upset are you personally about your own data and medical information. Probably as concerned as upset as you can be with something like this us you know. We are trusting these companies incorporations with this e health data And you know when you're looking at it when again we're hearing things like you know us. Means passwords words and e health records may have been accessed. This is where I'm a little bit. You know upset and also confused because we don't quite have the full picture from life lots right now One was a copy of the data ever removed from the network We don't know that right. Where we're being told is that they've been paid to retrieve the data that could be that a cyber locker attack has happened and they've just unlocked and no copy was ever? Excellent has a network of the best case scenario if a copy has been made those then that means that our information is out in the wild and we're relying on trust but organization that has broken into a network in order to make sure that it doesn't go any further than that. It's a very dangerous. Take all of us to be in the company and saying that the data that was stolen is now secure that they haven't seen any disclosure of it on the dark web. They say they've been told all that there's a very low risk that really the people who hacked into the system just wanted money which they guy does that. Reassure you at all. It's somewhat what a bit of reassurance right because typically when people do perpetrate attacks like this what they are looking for. Is that money Selling our nation piecemeal not actually worth to them. They usually find that sweet spot of you know what they're going to make some good money on this. It's enough of a pain in the neck for someone like labs try to have to retrieve this without going through them so it's sort of that sweet spot of money being able to take that payment and then everybody kind of walk away Safely so you know it. It's right now I'm sort of again we're on the fence of you. Know is that actually what is happening. I was a copy made. And did they keep a copy. Later on most hacker groups will not do that because they want. That'd be seen as honorable. The situation like this. They can actually keep getting paid when they perpetrate actions like those. Oh that's interesting to hear that you that these hackers wanting to be seen as honorable. And can you tell me what what could these hackers conceivably do with the data that was potentially taken here. I mean any time that you have personal information like this. It does have a value on the dark web The rough going rate for social insurance number On on the dark ones around twenty dollars which you know if you're going to go through automate the sale of that That that could be worth their amount of money. The problem is there really a lot takers for data like that all of the time because again when it's attached to something like this we now have people going through and getting monitoring tools and so on that makes it worth less so so you know looking at this right now. Probably the most efficient thing for this group was to actually approach life. Lives and say you know. We've got the data whether again whether it's been exfiltrated for that work or or not You don't have access to it. We can restore access to it for a certain dollar about and if you pay us we can make all of this. Go Away for Eve called this type of attack. Heinous honus five you know I really when we think about this way this is called an informational terrorism as well you know. This is the currency of the digital. Delayed is our information you know as an end user my identity online probably one of the most valuable things to me. We think things like identity theft. We think about when we're looking at e the health records there could be test results in there. That are sensitive to me that I don't necessarily want Insurance companies or my job or my friends and family to know about and so essentially you know it it is held hostage quite literally In in the truest sense of the word So I you know we look at it this way. I think we actually have to elevate the language that we're using to talk about this because these things need to be treated far more seriously by groups that have forced the law around and pass surprised. Were you that something like this. Could it happen you know. It sounds like we're almost experiencing fatigue with us at this point but I'm not terribly surprised. We're in a bit of an arms race with groups like this Whether it's something as we call zero exploit where there's a problem the network that you don't know about because there's been a new security Software breach discovered heard You know that's one thing that we're fighting against Rosas fighting against things like malware which Something like an email could be sent to someone on the inside and despite the fact that they probably they shouldn't have permissions to run that particular file they do and then it compromises the network. This is an incredible challenge from both angles And I think that you know we take take a look at things like it. We don't necessarily put the funding into it because it isn't a problem until it is a problem and that it's probably one of the biggest problems that you ever gonna face so for someone like me me. What kind of measures do you think I could keep? I could take to keep to keep myself protected. Well there the things that you can do and you know there are these services online where you can essentially monitor your identity They'll they'll take a look on the dark web. They'll take a look out there to see if you're using the password are being used anywhere The service life lives is proposing that they're going to compensate everyone with is offered for Trans Union. My my true Andy Dot ca essentially that services usually twenty dollars a month. They offered a year of that to to people who may have have been accused of this this Particular incident outside of that though Really were kind of rebound trusting the people that we That we trust this information with and you know. There's not really a whole lot that you or I can do we. Can we can do all sorts of things like have good passwords they should. We're not reusing passwords across different accounts but when the actual accounts themselves that have these records. Are you know act and and taken. There's really not a lot whole whole lot that you were I can do. That's a frustrating. Being thing to hear. Hey incredibly proposed. Class Action lawsuit has been filed in the Supreme Court. Alleges a breach of contract to keep customers is is private information secure and confidential Potentially against life labs would would you consider joining it. Yeah you know. I'm not a lawyer but I I look at something like it doesn't look at the offer of compensation of Kennedy Protection and I'm like Oh great deccan joined the three or four others that I have right now because of things like capital one and a few others that what I have going on in my life So I look at that that class action suit and I think you know maybe there might be some way of looking at this company and say how are you actually going to compensate me for this because this right now. It doesn't feel like quite enough. Okay Graham Williams. Thank you so much pleasure. Graham Williams is tech expert with the media company get connected and in a life labs customer. We reached him in Vancouver with ransom tax. On the rise and ransom demands increasing experts say companies governments and individuals must do more to guard against the growing threat. Carney Levy is technology and cybersecurity analyst. He is in London Ontario. Hello Army Good Morning Jamie. So what were your thoughts when you first heard about this big data breach angry and like Graham. I'm I'm one of those Canadians. One of those fifteen millions is probably impacted by this. I've gone to life labs for testing. They have my data on file. I've used their online service. Russell I registered with them so I'm in that target zone and You know even though this is the kind of thing that happens time again. We have breach after breach after breach capital. One equifax doc out that Yahoo It's it's it's it's because you trust them with your information their healthcare company and then they turn around and this happened in the more we learn about this particular breach the more upset we get because this is a company that literally dropped the ball. They they had Accountability Accountability for some of the most sensitive data that we could give them health information testing information. The kind of things that have been wrong hands could really be problematic They he didn't trip that they didn't secure it They let it. They allowed them to be victimized by ransomware attack and their response to but frankly has been inadequate. So you look Eh. Every kind of you know in the Pantheon of breaches This is one of the ones that really pushes me over the edge has it shouldn't have happened and now that it's happened. They're not doing enough to resolve it. And you mentioned encryption. I believe the. CEO of the company has said that he doesn't know if the data was encrypted. How would that have helped I mean it's encryption bitching trips and does is it uses software to you Lock the content so even if someone manages to break into the network and grab the files when they go to read it it looked like gibberish to them the only way that they can actually read the content is if they get the encryption key either digital cheese I'm walking And it's considered information technology. Best practice to encrypt your most sensitive information And and that wasn't happening it didn't happen here and the fact that the CEO doesn't even know if that was the case to me is unreal. You put a guy like this on camera. And he can't answer the most basic a question about security protocols it is an astounding thing. Carney can you tell me have have we seen anything like this before a similar security breaching candidate Canada before not on the scale. And certainly not Kinda this far over the line individual data breach Certainly comes close. But you the way they responded was much more immediate much more positive They had an action plan in place. their CEO new You don't have the answers was properly coached And if you were victimized by this breach you didn't just get a year of monitoring you basically got a lifetime. which is what they should? It'd be offering a year is a year isn't enough because we're only going to know in many cases the data is there. It's in the while it takes in some cases over a year if not more Until further attacks prosecuted using that information. So you're not GonNa know that you've been victimized until well after after that the monitoring is being offered by life flats expires and correct me if I'm wrong here but I believe the days are damn bridge was because of an internal issue issue whereas this breach is sort of an outside hacker. Am I right about that. Correct thing is because this was a ransomware attack there was an internal involvement. The the you know. What ransomware does it takes advantage of the fact that your employees are not well trained someone on the inside at life labs and again? We haven't seen these these details but the signature. This attack suggested very strongly someone got an email that was gonna get it from the inside and the clicked. It's on the wrong link. They trust the process that install malware within lifelock. Allow the hackers to come in and grab the information information so that the technology problem it was a people. Problem is often the case when it comes degree like that. What do you think of life? Labs is decision to pay the ransom. Did they have any other choice. I mean you want to happen. You don't really have a whole lot of choice but you the of the data. The research is very clear. Companies that choose to pay ransom in order to unlock and regain access to their data are at a much higher risk of being attacked in a similar fashion in future. Because one packers it's almost like You know you're you're on the Savannah where the wounded animal is hundreds. We'll know where to go up the deal here And so you know you know we count so Council companies to. Not If you had done your home at formerly if if you had done your backups and had proper disaster recovery plan with cybersecurity built into it you wouldn't have to even answer the cyber attackers you'd be able to say not. We're good we write our Jada the same argument here for negotiating with terrorists. You know it causes more terrorism. More terrorism security experts say that with the a push to get medical systems. Online data. Breach is a wakeup call for e health. Security and privacy. What what do you think of that? I think it is and I think it's a it's a reminder under that we have been essentially under spending an under-prioritising security Pretty much forever. And companies government agencies as as well as individual Canadians needs to look at security and take security first perspective. It's almost like insurance. Nobody wants to talk about it and no one even wants to think about it until their house burns down. And then you know you you realize that you didn't have enough the same thing with security. It isn't the shiny ball in the room. It isn't a sexy as technology out there. Not the kind of thing that gets gets headlines but it is the kind of thing that's GonNa save your vacant when the worst happened so if you're in it or out of icy you have to start asking not just what features do you. These technologies have but will be protected if the worst happens. And if you don't have answers for that shouldn't be deploying those technologies or using those technologies in the first place. You alluded you did before to this being like the biggest breach that we've seen some are saying this is a watershed moment. So do you think that we'll see any real changes as a result of this. I really hope so And I keep thinking you know like what you know. At what point are we finally going to get the message and the things are going to snap into place and we'll full finally going to do something about it. I hope this is because it. Certainly you know if if not one of largest or the largest Such creatures in Canada at the at the the details of it are particularly absolutely agreed. Yes I'd like to think that Our government and this is going to the solution to this is going to have to be legislative in nature. We need better laws that hold companies. He's like life labs to account so that they make the right investments upfront to prevent this from happening in the first place. And then there's a framework for response in case it does happen so that you in on Mike Clients if these companies are protected Until there's legislation in place all we're going to have her on camera on air if degree apologizing but nothing really changes so. I think the only way this is where we're going to break this cycle is if we have rules and consequences and punishment in place to do that. Is the law okay. A government solution. Listen to this as well Carney. Levy as technology and cybersecurity analyst. Thank you so much for joining me. He was in London Ontario. For More C._B._C.. PODCASTS GO C._B._C.. Dot C._A.

Bengals bench Ryan Finley, Andy Dalton set to start at QB in Week 13

"This is Sean Rama's firm. The host of Boxes Daily News. podcast today explained late September. We've done probably close to a dozen shows on this impeachment inquiry from the early rumors of a whistle blower complaints to Nancy Pelosi launching the formal impeachment inquiry to the whistleblower complaint coming out wrote the so-called transcript coming out to the Republican counter narrative to the White House stone. We've done it. All all felt like it was leading up to this moment of of televised impeachment hearings and the event of that event was the testimony of Gordon Sunland and we wanted to make sure are. We made an episode that properly showcased and explained the significance the historic significance of that testimony. And we did it and we want you to hear it. It's available in our feeds right now. Today explained episode is titled Impeachment TV. Mr Sunland goes to Washington Tin. It's a must-listen I wouldn't say so if it weren't go check it out and enjoy thanks. Hello everyone it's anthony because it was CINCY jungled dot com in the orange black like insider bengals podcast. Long Time. No talk right a Took year late yesterday after the bengals loss to the steelers and here we are again a short time later with some news. I felt like we had to. We had to come on the air and talk about what is going on with the Cincinnati. Bengals does any short. It's a mess everybody it it is a mess. It is a mess regardless in case you have not heard Zac Taylor took the air and and had his press conference wanted to talk to the media And in that exchange with the media he made the announcement that Ryan Finley was going to be. benched Andy I anti Dalton was going to be the starter for the remainder of the season. It sounds as if this is a definitive decision for the rest of the year. That Andy Dalton will be starting the rest of the Games for for the Cincinnati Bengals. There is the there are so many things to to dissect to digest I with this whole decision And I'll try and talk about about some of those today but I think we're also going to be talking about more of them later this week on our weekly orange black insider show thanks everyone to For Tuning in today I know Monday afternoons may not be The easiest time to tune in for some bengals news especially when the team is owned eleven. But I appreciate your interest. I appreciate your engagement again. I'm Anthony Costanza ZINZI JUNGLE DOT COM. And you can get the the pot. This orange black insider podcasts along with others on a number of different platforms. Get the show. Oh how you can I tune stitcher spotify Google play iheartradio Youtube since the jungle dot com. And then there's other shows on the on the podcast platform so check that that out but regardless here we are again with kind of the organization chasing its own tail right. And that's that's I guess this is Garrett Ray on the facebook channel kind of had hit on the head here as to where we're rat with this thing why not jake gala. Why Not Jake Dole Ayala? If you truly are in evaluation mode which Zack Taylor has said As much in recent weeks. And that's that was the impetus to go with Ryan Finley three weeks ago. Why do you at that point? Why do you go to Jake Dole? Why do you not go to Jake Dollah gala to see what if anything he has as an NFL starter as opposed to Ryan Finley? Now I think I think we know that I. It's a safe assumption. To make that Dole gala would probably even struggle more so than Finley. He was an undrafted player for a reason. He you know I mean. I went to a small school. So He's got the rocket arm. He's got the strongest armed. Probably if the three quarterbacks that the bengals have on the roster and by probably fairly certain in making that statement but I don't I don't know how much more successful he would be couldn't get much worse than it's looked into Ryan Finley but it it really couldn't I don't see him faring much better. He's inexperienced he's a rookie as well L. He's GonNa be playing behind that same terrible offensive line. I don't I don't know the Jake. DOLLAH Salleh would have fared better but uh I think it would have been a move that you think about if you truly are in evaluation mode okay so that kind of begs. The question of what goes into this decision to go back to Andy. Dalton why are you doing this You know why not go the youth movement quote unquote with Dole Ayala. Give him a game or two seasons lost as it is see if he's got anything if he looks totally lost than. Hey maybe that's when you go back to Dalton and just say hey you know we're we're own fourteen. We got to try and win a game and feel good about ourselves going into twenty twenty. And that's that's where you go I don't really understand the the mindset there but My only thing my only reason to believe that. Why Zack Taylor went back to Eddy Dalton as the starter is simply because he's feeling pressure to win a football game? This team has now own eleven. It's the worst start by Bengals team in its in its franchise history. They are doing very little. Oh correctly most of the things that are going right are not really due to Zack. Taylor Zack Taylor's areas of responsibility really. Obviously it's the whole team as the head coach but his his area of responsibility. His main area of responsibility is quarterback development offensive development putting points on the board making an exciting offense offense. None of that is happening right now. None of it if you go to. I've mentioned this a couple of times now on the air. The bengals have not scored more than twenty three points in a game this year. Not good they've scored seventeen points four times and the last three games. Oh Ten points twice in thirteen points in Ryan Finley's three starts not good yesterday. Bengals had sixteen percent success on third downs. That's terrible UH FIT Ryan Finley two touchdowns two interceptions two lost fumbles forty seven point one completion. Asian percentage. That's atrocious too. Touchdown passes in three games versus four turnovers. I and two of those turnovers by the way were returned for touchdowns by the defense so this is a to me. This is a a little bit of a shell game by Taylor maybe to potentially keep the eyes off of him a little bit. I also think Zack Taylor needs to win a football game. If not more than that he cannot. He cannot not go through this season. I mean I know a lot of a lot of Bengals fans are a tank it go on sixteen other way. Get the top pick blah blah blah. So that I think Paul danger of the athletic wrote this in a in a recent piece of his as well going winless in a sixteen game season in football season that does not sit well with the locker room. That does not sit well with veterans. That does not sit well with the fan base. That's not something that breeds optimism. That's not something that breeds positively vity that does that's not something that breeds belief in the long-term tanking. If that is truly with bengals doing tanking does does has the same effect it does not breed an an error of accountability. It does not breed positively. It does not breed. Hope for the long term Tom. If you're not a good football team you're not a good football team. Obviously that's where the bengals are right now but this team he needs to win football games. Zach Taylor needs to win football games. He can't in the same season. Have the worse start by a rookie head. Coach in franchise history. You were start by Bengals. Ever in franchise history cannot be one of the quickest teams ever eliminated in the NFL playoffs and go winless in the same season as a first time head coach. You just can't do it in. That's why probably this move was made it as a desperation move to probably we tie at in an attempt to at least tie the mark for the least amount of wins in a bengals which is two or a two thousand fourteen season. If only got a handful of games left two of which are against Cleveland and I think you know that Mike Brown the owner of the Cincinnati bengals. If this if he's in a the season that is going down the tubes he is not going to accept losing twice to the Cleveland Browns. While going winless in a season there there are a lot of things Mike Brown will stand for their light. Lots of things. He will tolerate losing to the hated browns twice in a season and going winless and tying a mark that the Cleveland when Braun said a couple of years ago is something he will not accept. I think that this is probably something aside from Zac Taylor having a little bit of autonomy as a coach I think this is maybe a decision decision that said Hey. This isn't working within the you made that call. It is not working. It is not exciting. It is not getting butts in the seats. You gotta you gotTa do something here and you've got to put you gotta give this chance. The best team win. I think also a lot of people talking. How can how ZAC Taylor realistically face the media? Tell the fans tell everyone were doing what we can everything we can to win football games and you continue to Trot Ryan Finley and his forty seven percent. Completion percentage manage out there. It it holds water. It really holds no water Jerry older says I like the move. I'm sick of losing. I mean I think everybody's everybody's sick of losing. I think that that locker room is sick of losing now. Here's the thing. There are a lot of moving parts here here. Okay when Dalton and I put this I put this in a post. That went up early on Cincy jungle before this decision was made because yesterday after the loss to the steelers Zack Taylor was very noncommittal to Ryan Finley. At that point I kind of thought thought he was going to stick with him but he didn't really make the you know Ryan Finley's our guy for the rest of the year type of answer to questions. He didn't give that to everybody. He said we got to review the film. I don't know if you can get a good grasp on somebody after just three games while I mean I think I think in some respects. They did get a good grasp on who Ryan Finley is. Who is quarterback? But this is the interesting thing. Okay aside from all the injuries that adult and had to deal Jio with Anthony had to deal with. Aj Green cordy Glenn who finally made his return. Yesterday against the steelers Jona Williams John Ross list goes on and on and on offense part of the problem with that is that the bengals could not run the football. They were last in the league. And and when the when the team was on. Eight and Dalton was the quarterback the Bengals were dead last in league by a large margin in running the football. They they were terrible at it. These last three games. Joe Mixing his run for two hundred seventy nine yards which is ninety three yards per game on average and four point four yards per. Carry dumb. Didn't have that run game at least as it's currently performing in these last few games comes in the first handful of games now with these performances by Joe Mixing has been a larger amount of carries a higher volume of carries and touches ages. Bhai Joe Mixing because he is basically the best player left on that offense offensive unit. He is creating quite a few big plays out of nothing and he's getting hit in the backfield. He has to break a tackle or two to make some of these big plays but the fact remains he is. I don't I think they've they're calling more effective plays in those conducive to what the offensive line can do. And what Joe Mixing can can do as a running back but aside from that. I'm not I'm not totally sure her. Why this why? That wasn't really looked at in terms of tweaking when Dalton was in the lineup because obviously so if Dalton had this run game to lean on if there was any sense of balance there probably would have been some wins in there. Especially when you're looking added a close loss to the bills a close loss to the cardinals and by the way that was one of Nixon's better better games running the football against the cardinals. When when you're looking at you know some of you may be looking at a team with ANA two wins three wins right now instead of zero That may not be music Zik to a lot of fans ears because they want that number one pick and they want to get that quarterback or for some of you MARDI seeing chasing chasing chasing Joe Borough obviously so I don't I don't know what to expect here but other facets of the team are working and that we're not currently working when Dalton was originally the the quarterback this season Cordy Glenn is now back Jack. Aj Green was running routes in throwing with Dalton this morning if he saw that on twitter and there's some video feed of them kind of running thing I mean it was very informal but green kind of in workout gear not not pads and a helmet but workout kind of gear in running routes and catching balls from Dalton and. I don't know if that means he's close to finally coming back as well. We'll see but that's a that's a facet a player that hasn't been available all year to Dalton nor Finley John Ross scheduled to come back early December. Maybe this is the way so that they can. They feel that they can truly evaluate Andy Dalton in this offense with some of those weapons back maybe they maybe. They felt that they didn't give him the fairer shot in those eight games because of their own. Play calling the injuries and all of that. I find that a little bit of a stretch personally and I think by now if you need an additional four games five live games from Andy Dalton to get a better grasp on who he is as an NFL quarterback. I I find that to be a little a bit. I don't know I I mean I think right. Now you've had years to to know who Andy Dalton is whether it's behind a good line bad line. You haven't had that long to know him under Zack Taylor but really who who is really excelling on offense in this in this offense minded under this supposedly offensive minded coach. Who is who is really really sticking out? Tyler Boyd has a couple of hundred yard games. But he's kind of getting high volume of targets because the other guys aren't in there and he had a couple of critical lairs against the steelers. Yesterday this Dunham Stephen says sounds like you're making excuses randy. I'm not making excuses for Andy. I don't know how far behind you are on where we're talking rocking here but I'm giving you some stats and I'm giving you. What's there? There was a running game. These past three weeks for Ryan Finley that was not there. Randy Dalton there are guys potentially coming back in this final stretch of games for Andy Dalton. That didn't have at the beginning of the year. Maybe that's why they made this move. It cannot be that much worse. Here's the thing with Andy Dalton. When he was here the an starting for the bengals under Taylor? He was top five in passing yards but he had as many interceptions as two touchdowns they were missed throws out there that were kind of egregious misthrows throws by Andy Dalton. There was one yesterday. Ryan Finley down the sideline to Alex. Ericsson you know what I don't want it is I I don't want to. I don't I don't think anybody should be sold on the fact that this is going to be the cure. All this is now because they made this move midway ninety passed midway of the season back to Dalton that this is a cure. All on this is going to be the direction that they're gonNA go As a franchise. I still firmly believe that the bengals will take a quarterback very early in next year's draft. I don't think this has any bearing on that other than and Zach Taylor kind of trying to save his own skin a little bit. I don't know if he's feeling internal pressure that if you're not winning games if you go go winless this year. You are not going to be here next year. I don't know if that's the message that he's been given it very well could be. I am hello fairly certain in saying this that Mike Brown is not pleased with the attendance that has been shown really since in the middle of last middle end of last year into this year. And and that could be you know he could be feeling Taylor. Could repealing some internal pressure to say. Look man you gotta you gotTa Win Games. And you've got to put a product on the field that people WANNA watch and you simply are not doing that. Hey I'm Spencer Sir Hall. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan Nanny.

This is We're talking a little bit of Andy Dalton News and Bengals News on this Monday we We usually do this especially when some important news. It has come down to the wire with cincy. Jungle Dot com in the orange and black insider. Bengals podcasts. I mentioned earlier. You can get that podcast that John Sharon since jungle contributor and I do a couple times a week based on post game reaction is a weekly show and stuff like this. We do it a few times a week. And get that on basically basically wherever you get your podcasts so download the show how. You can't thank you for a lot of life people tuning into this this video so appreciate you tuning in on a Monday afternoon. Happy early Thanksgiving maybe. Some of you aren't working. I'm I'm jealous if if that's you I wish that was my case. But here's the thing and I don't WanNa talk about this too long because because I want to talk about this on the weekly the weekly show with John when we when we got the opportunity to but an interesting hypothetical goal that I think is a likely hypothetical. But what if Andy Dalton comes back into the lineup for these final five games. That's what if he goes foreign one five zero and it's because a it's because cordy Glenn back it's because John Rawson. Aj Green Comeback. Maybe even John Williams. There's I mean he's he's not on. I R he's on pup so oh who knows what's happening there there's jeff obstinate bengals dot com. You know kind of mentions his name here and there is a potential guy that could be available. Come December. What if those this guys come back? Andy Dot light it up kind of looks like the quarterback that we had hoped to see in. Zack Taylor offense. Hello and the Bengals Win Games. They beat Cleveland twice. They win some games entirely possible by the way because they've got the jets coming up. They've got the dolphins coming up two games against the BROWNS. There's a winnable stretch of games. And it sounds like Taylor's committed to anti starting the rest of the year for better for worse wet wet then goes into the decision. Asian is this you know. Say Say ENGDAHL has a high degree of Success S. in these final few games because of other factors factors the team had planned on relying upon at the at the onset of the year so and it cost him a few draft spots and they don't have that number one spot anymore because they'd be say they beat Cleveland once or twice a beat Miami. They beat the jets and all of a sudden there are. There are few spots down. And you don't have Joe Borough at your disposal unless you want to trade. A heavy arsenal pixel We all know the Bengals don't like to do that. What happens then? Do you take a a to a Justin Herbert a few spots later and in the case of to you let him heal up and you Have Andy Dalton under contract for a final year and you ride with Andy Dalton Wall to heels up. Learns the offense in the in the case of Herbert. So do you He didn't play well last weekend. And it's got a lot of people including myself Kinda questioning some things about him. Do you do with him do you do a Carson Palmer. John King Situation. You draft adjusting Herbert. You'll have them set. And you haven't learned behind Andy Dalton and you have your Ride Dalton in twenty twenty and Herbert's either your guy later in twenty you give him a shot. If the if the season goes down the tubes again or twenty twenty one you pass the baton to him like you did with a kitten in Palmer all of this all of these hypotheticals rely on Dalton playing well so these final few games but and that the may not even be an issue maybe on issue he may He may play just the same if not worse than he did to start the season. But if you are antidote and you're probably pretty pissed off about how this whole thing has been handled you wanted to be traded around the time you were going to be benched now. Not only are you playing with a chip on your shoulder. You may be feeling like you are auditioning for other teams for a trade next offseason. And that's where you're play elevates especially with some of these guys coming back what what are the Bengals do at that point. I know it's easy to say. Oh well you move on from anyway and I am inclined to agree agree with that but it costs you. Picks and draft slotting if it if he does show the promise that you had hoped to see out of him with with these pieces in the Taylor offense if he if they show that promise. It's it really isn't from a coaching perspective. To say okay by the IT really isn't I mean I. I've been in those shoes. NFL Head coaching shoes. But I've been in coaching positions. Where you think you've given up on somebody give them a second chance outstanding playing better in all of a sudden your eyes are opened a little bit and you go? Wow it's not so easy to just cut this guy or put him back on the bench. Tom I still think this whole this needs to be this. This team kind of as of two thousand twenty needs to be start starting over from scratch in terms of quarterback and whatnot. I I don't know where Andy Dalton's heads if if Andy Dalton ends up sticking around in twenty twenty based on the scenarios that I laid out where he he won a few games at the end of the year the Bengals is cost himself some draft positioning instead of getting Joe Borough they get they end up going to a Herbert route letting them develop for a half year to a year before taking over I. I don't even know what dolphins head space would be at that point. I don't know I don't know where he would be at their I. I think this is. I think Tom Volunteer says in the The live facebook replace. The play. Caller will play. Caller Zack Taylor. So if you want to replace him from that role only you're going to need to give that roll off to Brian Callaghan or you're going to need to get rid Brian Callaghan and hire somebody else. Maybe it's Van Pelt them. I don't know the answer to that but I will say this. I do think in cutter Thomas here. kind of mentioned this on facebook. I think if if if everything else held up the same way in terms of the running game performance in terms of the defensive performance of the last two Games Cincinnati would have won those those last last two games and if Dalton was quarterback Cincinnati would have beat the raiders. And they would've won. They would have beat the steelers. Yesterday I'm fairly confident in saying that and I think if maybe some of those things we're working a little bit better. When Dalton started the Bengals may have said three wins? Four wins total at this point. I don't know what that does for you I guess it makes you feel a little bit better about Zack Taylor. And his staff going forward it does obviously put the bengals in a worse this position for draft slotting so A lot here. We're GONNA talk more about this Wednesday but as of now in week. Thirteen Ryan Ryan Finley is benched Ryan. Finley's benched and Andy Dalton. is now the starting quarterback. So he's got I five games to kind of show what he's got left and Zack Taylor has got five games to try. And get some wins and put himself off in the good graces of fans and ownership and and prove that he can be a guy that can lead a team but a eh for now this just. This looks like a mess from the outside looking in. It looks like a mess. It looks like this organization. It looks like aw indecisiveness and that does not point to a lot of promise going forward. Both Zack Taylor in Cincinnati Cincinnati. Bengals again I'm Anthony Costanza as I mentioned you can get this program on a number of different audio platforms I tunes Stitcher spotify.

You're washing your hands because the better that we are in managing it the sooner will be able to enjoy some of the things that we've enjoyed you know previous to this so let's just make sure that the nation takes care of the nation so let me jump into the main topic of the program. It's yeah I said it. The steelers should sign. Andy Dalton. And don't get hung up on the name. Andy Dog I wanna take a cool calm collected approach to this because my fellow podcasters on bt SC. They took me to task yesterday on the Thursday show. The steelers preview. Big Up too bad. Who'S BIG UP TO JEFF? Hartmann big up deputy Dave. They took me to task and they took and they took everyone to task and steeler nation. Who came up with a statement like this? The steelers should sign Andy Dalton or the steelers should sign jameis Winston or the steelers should sign Cam Newton or the steelers should sign underscore blank put in veteran quarterback. And that's really what I'm saying. Don't get caught up on the name. Andy Dalton more so focus on the concept of bringing in a better quarterback to make that quarterback room better. And I'm using Andy Dot nist example because Andy Dalton is available in if the steelers were to acquire Andy Dalton Andy Dalton would probably be the best backup in the national football league outside of Jameis Winston. Now why do I say it is extremely important? That the steelers revaluate the quarterback room and try to bring in a veteran presence to bolster that room. So the steelers season is in jeopardy. If Been Rothlisburger is injured for. Let's say six to eight games now. Unlike jeff in maybe Dave. I think it's cute to be able to look at a season merely in it's super bowler bust. I understand that I mean I'm fifty years old. I'm probably one of the oldest guys at bt Se. I'm from Pittsburgh I get it. I've lived under that pressure. I know what it feels like being from the north side however you have to get to the playoffs to be able to compete for championships in right now. The steelers aren't doing that in the last couple of seasons so I don't think you can frame every season in that type of Lens. I'm not saying you're season in successful if you don't win a championship. I'm just saying when you look at a backup quarterback. You can't ask the question if this backup played. Could he get to a bowl? I think that's a false premise. That you can't argue so I don't think you can take it from that point but when you look at Ben Rothlisberger you look at his age. You look at his injuries. I mean the guy was out for almost an entire season. He was out for an entire in big up to King Hutchinson. You must be from Manchester. Cause KIDNEY GOOD IS MR MANCHESTER. You look at his age. You can look at the fact that he suffered a season ending injury to his right arm his throwing on and think past the steelers signing Andy Dalton per se. So I don't want you to get caught just in that but what I want you to think about is is the steelers roomed quarterback room good enough to sustain a major. Ben Rothlisberger injury where they could with the band aid on. This season were big. Ben could come back. As the savvy on the wound in they continue to move forward but if you look at bins age injury and the years remaining on his contract you cannot go off for regular standard operating procedures. Now I thought Jeff brought up a good point on Thursday show about how they manage the quarterback position in the past where they brought where he brought up. Some of the names of some of the backups for Big Ben. And if you look at some of the names of the backups. They've really roll the dice. When it comes to the backup quarterback position really trusting in Ben Rothlisberger to stay healthy and a quarter of a devastating quarterback injury not killed their season. Thank you west. This is the draft cap from last year. The city of Pittsburgh Background now given the things that I just said would bins. Age Injury in years remaining. You cannot operate with that same level or that. Same Standard Procedure. You cannot put your season at risk in at jeopardy when you have a guy. That's thirty eight thirty nine coming off of Elbow Surgery Anna Guy. That's probably in his last two years of playing in the national football league and because he's a franchise quarterback you have to preserve those years. You have to manage those years as if they are the most precious thing in the universe because once been is gone. He's gone so you have to maximize every season that he's at that he's playing quarterback you have to. You have to plan for any calamity outside of him staying healthy now. I agree with Game Theory. Charlie batch was solid. You need a quarterback of the level of a Charlie batch. That can play the type of football that Charlie batch did when the steelers started out three to one so now what Jeff Dave and in bad will tell you is that Mason. Rudolph one games last year. Do you really think they won. Games because of Mason Rudolph. Do we really think that the defense can play at a level where they can carry mason. Rudolph this offense only average eighteen points per game. I mean you're GonNa have to score some points. If Mason Rudolph has to play for a long stretch of games. Their season is over. But I guarantee you if I say. Andy Dalton has to play for a long stretch of gangs. Let's say eight games. You'll say Andy's good enough to carry the steelers and there's no scenario where you can argue that Mason Rudolph or Devlin Duck. Hodges is better than this is our client host of the podcast. In two thousand fifteen is what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me we're living in his nightmare now so I had him back on the show to ask. What has he learned. What do all of us need to learn? How far are we from a vaccine? And what does he hope for society on the other side of this crisis? What do we need to do to build something better in its aftermath enlisted our whole conversation but subscribing together Klein? Show wherever you get your podcasts. Andy Dalton Cam Newton and James. Winston is no longer in the conversation. Because he's a quarterback of the New Orleans Saints. There is nothing that you can say to convince me or any reasonable person. Who Evaluates football in the quarterback position that he's better than any of those three guys and so when you listen to Dave listen the bad listen to Jeff? They kind of flip at least throw out. Oh well. He threw thirty six through thirty interceptions. Thirty interceptions he turned the ball over a ton. But Jameis Winston has been better than Mason Rudolph at every level of football pop warner high school college amp Professional Cam Cam. Newton has been better than Mason. Rudolph in every level and there. I said he dog probably is being comparable if not better bottom line. Is The book on Mason. Rudolph is absolutely incomplete. That's where I will agree with those guys but because the book is incomplete and he only has about seven starts. Maybe eight starts. I don't know how many starts here. Let's just say ten starts. How are you going to compare ten starts against guys that have started over fifty games? And you're gonNA say like Dave Scofield said It's just relative as to WHO's better. It's not relative mason. Rudolph is nowhere near the caliber of those three guys. Now there was also an argument in their show about well. If you give the money to Mason Rudolph or if you give the money to a backup quarterback maybe you can't bring in Eric E. Ron and I rather bringing a Eric E. Ron tied in. Because he's going to help them more consistently than a backup. Quarterback will guess. What if your quarterback gets hurt? Iran won't matter and what the weapons at the steelers have. The ball is going to be. I mean how many targets Eric Ibrox going to get any way. I don't disagree that air. Iran won't help the offense but if you look at James Winstons deal. It's a million bucks. It's a million bucks. It's absolutely a million bucks. So you're talking about a known commodity in Andy Dalton and still in Mason Rudolph still largely an unknown commodity. And I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa rip him because he only has ten starts when I am going to say you simply if whatever you think. He is whether you think he's garbage which I do whether you think he's inadequate backup like the rest of my sc podcast. Family does your guessing. You're absolutely guessing. There is not enough tape to make either conclusion so because of that and because of that uncertainty it is almost impossible to manage the risk. So what you do is you eliminate the uncertainty you bring an unknown commodity and then you can manage the risk that way. Mason Rudolph with Ben Rothlisberger in probably his last. Two seasons of football is not the guy to hold Iraq. If Ben goes down you cannot sacrifice in flippantly sacrificed seasons the last few seasons of Ben Rothlisberger with a backup like Mason Rudolph. They need a veteran in the building. Mason Rudolph be the number three. He continued to develop you. Bring a veteran quarterback with Mason Rudolph. As you're three then. Your quarterback room is appreciably stronger. But when you look at the quarterback room when you have a thirty eight year old guy coming off of an injury to his right elbow not his left toe by the way. And your backups are Mason Rudolph in Devlin Duck. Hodges that's just irresponsible to put your your season at risk like that now. They talked a lot about Jeff. Bad Dave Scofield. They talked a lot about on your show about the fans living in their fears. Well let me ask you. This is New Orleans are the saints operating in their fears or were they operating in their fears when they signed Teddy Bridgewater. Absolutely not absolutely not. They were not operating in their fears. And thank you Riano immoral. I'm glad you finally irritating and you're listening that is the key keep listening And to Devon's point he said Lance. I don't understand in one episode saying they need to worry about giving big bend weapons and then initial saying that the back of Cuba is more important than the weapons. He needs weapons. If he's going to play he's going to be healthy. He needs weapons but dare. I say this the weapons can be used by the back of and by been so the weapons would help Ben and they would help the backup and you better have weapons if you have those dudes as your backup quarterback bottom line if Ben Rothlisberger goes down. Let's say eight games. Are they better off with Andy Dalton or with Mason Rudolph if you answer Mason Rudolph you were just being homer and that's fine and that's fine and so someone on the live chat said well with what money but let me go back to. I'll get to that. Let me go back to the New Orleans thing. I would much rather that the New Orleans that the steelers operate like the New Orleans Saints. Why are the New Orleans Saints? Operating in the way today are because they have an old quarterback who's window is rapidly closing in drew brees and they know if drew brees goes out for like he did last year. I think it was a six game stretch. I think Teddy Bridgewater from not mistaken with five in one if he goes down for six games. And you and you have tasted hill playing backup qb. Your season is Shat. They know with drew brees. They don't have many seasons two ways. What happened Teddy? Bridgewater goes out. There plays Great Football Bing Bing Bang they go to the playoffs and so let me go to the finance part of this Alpher. Fujisaki said logically. Speaking you can't expect to have all these offers of weapons in Andy Dalton. Yes you can. It depends on what? Andy Dalton will accept. Let's say Andy Dalton accepts the same level of contractor Jameis Winston? Did then you can afford them. It's one million dollars and that's not the responsibility of the fans to figure out how the Pittsburgh steelers can manage their cap. I will tell you from what I know about the cap what I've learned about the cap from an whetstone. The CAP can be maneuvered. It can absolutely been neutered and the cap can be done in what you can find money in the cab. You absolutely fine money in the CAP. So the Robert Save a wits he said five or no. He went five or no he went five in. Oh five enough. Dare I say this if they had a better backup quarterback they'd be in the playoffs last year. I mean bottom line. I'm just look you guys can't believe what Colbert in Tomlin is. GonNa tell you but I know you guys. I know you guys well enough. I know you guys well enough that if being gets hurt. You guys are going to complain. That they didn't do enough of the backup quarterback position. Because that's what we do as fans we want to have it both ways. You are not going to say. Well I believed in what Tomlin and Colbert were doing. And I trusted it but it didn't work out great. Let's go to next season. No what you're GONNA do. You're GonNa Complain Mea Jeff doing shows and you guys are going to be saying fire. Tomlin the live chat will be fired. Tom and fire tyler. Fire Tomek because you guys will say that. The steelers did not do enough to ensure the season by putting an adequate backup in the building and like Muhammad Ali said. Andy Dalton is a three time pro bowler. Hey I don't know what his market is. I think the Jameis Winston contract was probably not what he would get on the open market or he may not want to even signed for but look if you could get them for a million bucks. Why not but again. You don't have to worry about it. Let me let me read with Ian. Whetstone's said he said that the Jameis Winston deal was was pretty atypical of a backup quarterback contract. I don't think Dalton comes that cheap for the steelers assign them. I think they need to at least to a two year deal which he may not sign but hypothetically I think maybe four million cash the first year minimum can't see him coming cheaper than that he said the Capitol for Andy Dalton would probably be around two point five million. They could make room for that if they wanted but again. That's if he would want to sign for two years so let's say they could make they could make so given what Ian is saying. In the capitalist. He is the politics he knows the salary cap better. And all of you guys put together better than all of you guys together. If you could fide two and a half million dollars in your salary cap. It Andy Dalton was willing to take it and you could bring in Andy. Don't and you did not. That would not be smart. That would not be smart so I just know it I mean I. I just know how you guys are that if the if the season goes to Helena handbasket because Ben may not be as good as he wasn't pants. He is dealing with an injury. Being gets hurt. You guys have to watch another season of Mason. Rudolph sit like a statue in the pocket and get smashed. Our is GonNa be it's GonNa be it's GonNa be ugly is going to be ugly. I can't imagine being in a shelter in place in quarantine in a global pandemic and Y'all having to watch Mason Rudolph or Devlin Duck. Hodges play football for the entire season I would in ancient tree branch to climb a Spooky K zero island by ghosts where all the answers on.

But y'all will be drinking if y'all got to watch them to do. Those backups. Played quarterback for Y'all GonNa be drinking as beyond say said I've been drinking. I've been drinking. I I've been drinking drinking so I'm just saying a better plan would be to get a veteran. You can replace the Andy Dalton name. The steelers should sign blank. Veteran quarterback you you have to you you you have to you have to and I. I don't know Dj. To why totally said. Does anybody in China. Actually think that if we could sign up for for a million. We shouldn't exactly exactly if you could sign Andy Dalton for a million bucks or a deal that worked under the salary cap. You guys can't be arguing that that does not make sense. That would not make the steelers better if you are you. Guys are just trusting in what the organization says like having young says sign Matt Moore beyond certainty around. If either of these backups can play quality. Football is too great to try. You can't manage that particularly when you're franchise guy is all would've elbow injury you you just. You just can't do it. You can't do it. That is too much risk. In my opinion I think the way new the New Orleans Saints Done. It was perfect. You Know I. I think they were perfect. So shod American Patriot says signed Dalton and Newton to your NFL team lands. You're such a great coach and GM. I'm sure thirty two. Nfl teams are begging on your door. I will guarantee the thirty. Two teams aren't banging on my door or your door. So that would that would mean that European is not necessarily better than mine. If you can convince me Sean. American Patriot by any metric that those two backups are better than Dalton or Newton. Hey Man you can grab my Mike. You could do the podcast and you can host it. There ain't a match strict that you can pull up or point two two suggested either one of those dudes are better than Dalton or new. You can't you can't do it. You can't pull it up. You're just talking yard just talking so so look if you could get daunting for cheap it makes sense if you can't you move on with your plan but I've bare minimum. You've gotTA kick the tires and selling me that you've never kicked the tires over. The course of this process in bringing in any veteran is just absolutely irresponsible for them into big broncos. They can't afford them. They can't afford them big BRASCO. They can absolutely they can afford them. You know you guys would have said that. Jameis Winston wouldn't aside to deal for a million. I mean you know in Western says that you know maybe they can do it and get it two and a half million but we don't have to worry about that part they can't afford them would if they could afford them. Let's say Andy Dalton is is ready to sign for a deal that they can't afford. Is it bad then? So if your argument is they can't afford 'em that's why they shouldn't do it. What if it is affordable so if it's affordable? I guess you're arguing that they should so if you're arguing that they should you? You're saying that Dalton is better in that bringing. A veteran quarterback makes the quarterback room better if been were twenty seven and you wanted to roll the dice on his years. You wanted to put Dennis. Dixon has the back up. I'm fine with it. Whatever it is what it is. Ben's got a Lotta years remaining. We'll get back to get back years. There's not going to the club trying to be Mr Two. Am Anymore Bids Mr Eight PM? Bins MR. I need to get a nap and sit down and sleep. I'm just saying this. The plan is bad. It may work but the plan is bad. I don't think you plan it like that and I am hoping that it does work. I like like Dj to Tony. He says it's good passion. But this is a weird podcast. This would be like having a podcast called. Yeah I said it. I'm going to accept a date with the supermodel. No brainer if we could get one. I like that comment. I get what you're saying. All I'm saying is kick the tires on it coming out with the thought of. We don't even need to try to get a quarterback a veteran quarterback where coach there is nothing about the way Mason Rudolph or Duck Plane. That says you could be comfortable with their performances last year. Nothing nothing at all. I mean I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I have no confidence in the quarterback room. Nothing I mean none at all but this has been a fun one. I'm not gonNA take a few questions. Let me go through here. Take a few questions but again. I do WanNa send big shout steeler nation for any of you out there that have High School Seniors Classic Twenty Twenty and you have seniors. That are going to college next year. They made their decisions today on. May first congratulations to you. Also The Nation. The Nation needs to take care of the nation. Let's make sure we doing everything that we can. Whatever OUR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS WHATEVER? The states are mandating that you do. I know it's tough for everybody out there. Please do please take care of your fellow neighbor and let the nation take care of the nation but again yeah said it. The steelers should sign Andy Dalton or veteran qb.

734: Focus on Sales Behaviors not Product, with Sean Sheppard

"Time to accelerate. Hey this is Andy. Welcome to episode seven hundred thirty four of accelerate that's episode seven three four of accelerate the sales podcast of record. I have another excellent episode lineup. Free today coming back in joining me for a second time on the show. Is Sean Shepherd Sean is the founder and CEO CEO of growth facts affects a Silicon Valley based venture capital partnership with an accelerator focused on sales. And and this week episode. I'll be talking to sean about what he calls the lasting mover advantage. And we've all heard that the first mover advantage while in our conversation today Sean got talk talk about why it pays to go slow upfront. In order to grow faster later and in this conversation Sean I dive into the three things. You need to own own as the sales team to establish that lasting mover advantage. We'll talk about why it starts with owning the customer use case and we'll dig into that after that once. Don't you own the customer. Use Case what must you do to own their thoughts and actions that they take around it and also get into how design and organization around the knowledge skills and behaviors that you need to keep owning the use case as it invariably evolves. We'll get into white. Some part for companies to have a learning mindset to maintained the lasting mover vantage. So we get into all that we'll get into more but before we get to. Sean WanNa take a second talk to you about the Nilo soft then. All soft is the industry's leading sales engagement platform but most people simply referred to ask the solution. It's the solution to ensure sales development. Reps make the right right number of attempts for every lead. It's the solution to ensure sales development. Reps us more than just e mail that they consistently use linked in the dreaded telephone as part of their sales playbook. It's the solution to serve the sales development rep the next best lead over and over again so they actually hit their numbers. The solution starts with the right sales cadence.

What works what doesn't why Y you're frustrated so you can get your copy now at Vanilla soft dot com forward slash Andy? Paul get your free guide on sales cadences at Vanilla soft after dot com forward slash. Andy Paul Okay. Let's jump in today's episode. Sean welcome to the show. Thanks Andy Grant glad to be here. Let's pleasure to have you back for audio show but if I could just use my words if you second describe your backdrop I'm looking in this beautiful backyard and our into California all this lush greenery a very nice. That's supposed to myself industrial background Ryan. I thank you this is my happy place. This is my. This is my zen zen garden away from the Madison. The world now nice like actually meditate in your garden. I try try every morning. I try to do a couple of minutes so do us. One of the APPs like calm or no learned from a lot of those things. I just sort of to me like anything I think it may notation very personal thing and so I've just learned over the years how what works for me which is is really just to just take in? You know My surroundings and try and be holy aware of the sights and sounds of nature and use that to start the day. It was a very common nice focused. Nice notice as long as I possibly can. Yeah you got distracted right Yes yes yeah. What's been awhile since he's been on the show so may may refresh listeners? A little bit about growth ex. You're the founder. CEO of growth. EXO Tell people about what sure maybe growth X. began it's silicon valley based venture capital partnership that also has an accelerator that's focused on sales not products and it has an academy that trains people not just in sales els but in marketing design thinking data science all the things that move the needle on the market development side development side of the business. The reason is is that we found as serial entrepreneurs turned investors turned frustrated investors because our companies weren't eating We found out that they weren't succeeding because of sale will and and behaviors because of product and technology right. We built our entire program in our core. Focus what we call our market acceleration program which everything's sort of built up all focused on developing markets. And making money not developing products and raising money. And so when you think about things things through that Lens it changes very much. What you prioritize and In what you contribute your company's into the talent I went to the investor community to the entrepreneur community into the talent that wants to work with them bread. BERKO WE'RE GONNA was his the topic we said we're GonNa talk about which I think is really interesting. Because there's a lot of sales implications for it is this whole idea of You emphasize sized not first mover advantage but last mover advantage or lasting mover advantage excusing. Be Be precise So let's let's dig into that because I've ever here's what the first first mover advantage And you're saying hey that's not always that's not always where we WANNA be. Yeah I just said sort of had one of these One of these moments where I was able to stand back and look at the last forty plus years of my life growing up in Silicon Valley Alley where you know. This is obviously a hotbed of tack and the Movement Attack and start to observe You know what really has Fired hired through the through the normal course of doing business in markets development cycle. Because you get when you when you plan in the seed stage venture business like I play you know. We're dealing with early product early market early customers early revenue opportunities and I find myself having to constantly educate and remind mind my portfolio companies and just the founder community whole on the whole at large to go slow in order to be able to go fast later. I think about scale yet right. They raise money based on the idea of this massive market that they can get arrived sent and then they go to market thinking that that's just going to happen and then the behaviors. Just go right down the tube and they never actually stop and go back to the pebble in their shoe and go okay for example. Not what's my best customer. But who's my first custom and what they look like Urge them and we call it the initial customer profile. Right Mr Right now. Not our Mr Right as I like to joke right and so in south through the course of that I just started to have to go back and think about in my life and you to andy knowing spent so many of your former years here. bally's well if you look at the five most valuable companies at today None of them were I in in in what they were. They were doing right APP. Not Create Gooey Interface Xerox did at Bryant Park Right. There were There were very successful. I mean we can go back to go back to Tandy. Yes yes yeah I mean we could go to these companies That were very strong in the personal computer. Business that Mo- that many people are going to be listening to podcasts. Never heard of and and then we can also go to do a google was not by any stretch the first search accessible one that right. I mean we dog pile and we used off of you have I mean there were so many Coming through back then You have You no you have You know there's just a wide variety of those examples. You know obviously netflix crushing it. Right now off. Buster was around doing that stop long beforehand. Yeah it's just bring an article yesterday a story about when net flex met with blockbuster blockbuster offered to buy them for fifty million dollars dollars Reed Hastings co-founders has actually written by his co founder. Dale Surf laughed and said Yeah no it. Also you guys later Yeah Yeah you're absolutely right. I and I and I'm not going to share any information but I just came back act from big conference in Amsterdam but one of our companies where we had a very similar experience and and we have had We believe that if things go the way they're going go. We have a multibillion dollar opportunity on our hands and sit on several. Are we have the courage our conviction to go down the right because of those kinds of experiences ask ask that that had been formed us into. Here's where the market is going. The folks at one a bias will let you know alyce Barry us but but they They certainly we don't know how to typically integrate sees acquisitions very well into their. We're GONNA station. Cataract Elisa correct. Yeah those instances no go ahead. I make a point. There was a digression not not further in the conversation. So that's all right. We're sales guys. We love to digress So at any point any rate the point is is that you look at Amazon. They were not the first ecommerce player by any stretch. Doing I mean just pick it right. I mean you look around you in rarely do you see something that was first to market that was able to sustain their position in in the market over time and so I found myself just wanting to try and Take my learnings. It just apply it to our framework for helping companies find product market fit as we like to say and then just get very clear about three things that that you need to go after in order to build a lasting mover advantage and there are three things that I noticed that in the in the most successful lasting companies come back over and over and over again And so the first one I think is most important is owning a use case And I talk about ownership. I talk about these things because I think there's an intent i. I don't want it to be an arrogance of ownership. I wanted to be A you know an earned ownership. I want our mindset in our attitude to be my job is to earn the right Through sweat equity you own a piece of this use case of this particular customer in a particular market and make the bat that if I can solve deeply and correctly and create real value through the course of that with this one customer these two or these three or these four but the same use case that I can at that. There are many many others like them in the marketplace by then for my risk becomes execution risk ask not product and technology risk And so if I'm focused on that I want to that starts by clearly defining the problem which most of us so gloss over and we don't have clarity around and then mutually working with that initial customer profile clearly deeply Lee defined the problem Einstein used to say if she can't explain it well you take care of them. You don't understand it well enough right yes. I think that by the same token though is it's not that a first mover can't do that rex but it's interesting oftentimes they don't the side of it and they stopped doing well. They assume they're right just because they got the first one and right. And I think that's that's where oftentimes the downfall comes as it gets. Are the arrogance of saying well. Yeah I've got these logos that said this is the right thing but it's moving moving target and place them that's right and I think complacent season example of it. You and I were talking off the air just beforehand about uh-huh about Shooter proving and just generally about it the innovation economy and how quickly things change and and move right and where I see things and you and I talked about a also news term. Ambiguity is opportunity and I talk racing winging beauity so we share a similar vision. There I think the point is that is that when when some when changes introduced of any any sort it creates new problems and opportunities right if we are concerned that forty percent of the workforce is going to be out of jobs because of robots automation automation. The next thirty to forty years. Yes they may be out of the current jobs but every new innovation creates a whole new set of problems and challenges which therefore means means bringing this all back into focus is that the use cases constantly changing? And it's changing faster now at a faster rate today than it ever has before we know we know the statistics around things like you know the average tenure on E. S. and P. Five hundred nine hundred seventy seventy five years today. It's about ten to twelve writers. We know that. Jeff Bezos even had the courage in the in the in the last quarterly shareholders meeting or. Maybe it was one prior to say I'm worried about whether or not Amazon's GonNa be around in twenty thirty which is just a shocking thing for the market or anyone really here? But it's the truth. Yeah I mean there's assumption of invulnerability with these these big players and and I remember back in the nineties put together this like portfolio for my my IRA era which on the advice of a you know advisor will win. His stock was some core companies. That just aren't going to go away right. Yeah those those companies you could probably predict. At and T.. Motorola Texas instruments so good on the list like all of them either gone away been the name may still exist completely separate company all this and that was that happened a matter of ten years. You're absolutely right so the point is is that the use cases is never static for for for an extended period of time. It's constantly changing. But but you do need to find that hook as my friend nearly all the book cooking Ephron As set you have to find that one thing what does that. One singular use case that I can through sweat equity learn understand and APPs shared ownership alongside of my early customers to ensure that I survive live long enough to get to the next opportunity but never change that mindset that use cases constantly moving and. I don't know if you've talked about this before. Andy but my father was an officer at Intel Corporation. I was fortunate enough growing up to be in you know in dining rooms with Andy Grove and Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore and Crate Barra Ah Lenient Mike Splinter and all these guys that all subscribe to the only the paranoid survives Andy Dot com riot broke talked about constantly still one of the all-time great books don't know what the term paranoid scare you away It was a positive and productive paranoia that came from an engineering mindset in Hungary and emigrant right who didn't even speak English when he came to the That said we constantly have to be staying out in in front of everyone and everything all at all times right and and so so that is to me The mindset of the leadership and then the people that they put in place to to execute against that has to be we need to clearly define a use case right now. Let's try to truly deeply deeply deeply solve it for all use K.. All user types in all scenarios and don't focus on anything but that like we Taylor company. Sometimes if you're not you know one of my partners. Andrew Roller loves to do this with that. He says I want you to take me through an entire day of your life minute by and minute and And I want you to tell me what you're doing during those minutes and then I want you to ask yourself. It's a very simple. Yes no question is that thank think focused on getting somebody to transfer money from their bank account to yours right at simple right so getting really focused in order to do that. you've got to start you have to. You have to begin in the shared connection of yet. There's a problem here and here's what the problem is. How do we solve it And then be focused wholly exclusively on on Solving that problem and then what you do it creates those challenges. Those learnings those insights and those opportunities to change any number of things which brings us into that second thing which is okay now that you've figured out how to how to develop an environment where you can only use case with your customer. How do you now own their thoughts and actions around it because we we now live in this time where how we think is just as important as what weakening and And in the more I do this in the more time hi my spend was smart successful people the more they focus on how people think comment around it as opposed to just what they think so so you get to a point where okay. Now that I've known this use case we've learned the following things based on that. What do we do about it? And who's responsible for that you and I were talking a little bit offline just about you coming back from Gartner event where you know people are trying to figure out that the next thing is okay. How do I make good decisions with all? This awesome information right fingertip. That's how how to think thing right thing. So that's now there's thoughts and actions that have to be You know performed Everybody involved customer and yourself and you have an opportunity as the person who helped define the problem and develop a a solution within that use case to also come to table with. Here's how thinking about what we do next based on what we did yesterday and what we've learned and and not be afraid to do that and if you develop a a strong enough Developed enough credibility through the course of executing cuting against loosening against that problem with your customer. They're going whether they say it or not out loud explicitly. They're implying that you need to do this part next like. Where's the data? Show me works traffic. Every technology solution always has reporting. Come last there's a reason for that. We don't know what the hell's happening until took actually start doing it and then if you're really good at it the information you generate off of the use case solution is more valuable than the solution itself alternative and so so now. It's about all right now. How do I come in and analyze and and create an opportunity to change the way This this abuse cases viewed and how it's dealt with what we can do next based on that so that's the those are the opportunities that come up from solving that problem and often often times we get static and we because we think about everything at scale and we're back to the total addressable market. It's like okay if I can do this in this way. That generates this much revenue. The new over this period time with the compound annual growth rate of back it is my cat. LTV incidently scalable and Blah Yada Yada. Yep Yep exactly and meanwhile we're not focused on making sure that That as as a use case evolves our our our approach towards owning wing it evolves with it in there for the thoughts and actions Come come from there an interesting question then. From from sales perspective of about owning that use case as the use case evolves it has implications for the nature and the structure of your team. Yes And once you dig into that a little bit because I think this is. This is the part that I think is. I see the failure point. Point oftentimes for smaller companies as they're not as nimble agile with their team makeup compared to the evolving cases. That's right that's you're you're you're very much right about that. Sales organizations are wholly focused largely on acquisition right as like modern term. Closed the deal. Get the deal in the door. And because we're so invested in that We invest in marketing of top of the funnel we invest in sales development beneath that we invest in in account executives executives. There we might even invest in technical support and help to help us through a complex sale environment or highly technical one and then we forget about customer implementation on boarding adoption retention and growth. And then we're late to the party on trying to solve for that and we ended up with churn and all those issues associated with that. The key here is to do what we call creating. Create a functional Learning Organization the team responsible for owning that. Use as case. So you have to as you say design and organization around the individual roles responsibilities that you hypothesize are necessary in the knowledge skills and behaviors necessary to get through owning learning about that use case defining it Solving Ford owning it. And then creating an when you get into step two which is owning accustomed thoughts and actions. You better have the right skill set there. It's not necessarily the sales guy who's going to be a girl is going to be able to do that. You need you might need to bring a data scientist you may need to bring in a digital analysts you might need to bringing the subject matter expert of. That's Voice of the customer. You might need to bring in all three. You might need to bring him. You certainly early stage. You have to bring in product. Development Product Management Emily into that process and everybody has to be working through what we call a functional data driven learning. Look where somebody responsible for driving that loop. They're bringing in people from different areas of both sides of the organization to prioritize that so who typically drives that functional earning loop well in our companies. It's always the person who's responsible for the muck for market development whether that is the founder or co founder. It's the first sales higher But it's that person is responsible for identifying and resourcing to build that functional learning organizations in the loop that's associated with a first sales higher than it's not necessarily that it's not gonna be a you're on the Milam individual contributor it's GonNa be crank characteristics. It's and attributes that that we that we look for in the person who's responsible for taking something to someplace new for identifying initialising that customer Shimmer use case that hypothesis that we think we can help people with this problem in this way and they can generate these kinds of results from that right person. It's just so we were talking about people who know how to race ambiguity. They have a strong strong acumen for learning as you call. Continuous active learning race ambiguity Who have a strong business? Accurate right your stand How how how? That problem affects impacts packs that company's business that person's business job bill how to articulate that with strong communication skills they all speak take two engineers anti-human says I liked the JOE show. This person asserted this the term. That's been used in the past sort the renaissance type right exactly Mark Leslie. Term and Charles. Holloway's turned of the Renaissance rap and in in large corporations who were trying to innovate. We call it the role of the commercialization leader and it's actually a a role that growth in corporate and We have a big invasion practice. Now where we manage venture capital operations rations. We also helped them create open innovation business models where they can run their own industry accelerators technology and talent from outside their community to help them work on disruptive and adjacent innovations but more importantly the are true differentiator as we thiessen how to commercialized new innovations and it starts with the soil same framework that we use help our startups product to market right and Renaissance Rep role in evolves it into what we call the commercialization leader and now we're starting to put that out into the world and tell the story about her. Yeah because they don't exist in these companies. Andy you know as well as why do the people that are running. These big organizations are not the ones that started them and have a very different mindset to begin with somebody who who is part product art market art business braces ambiguity has an entrepreneurial spirit and talk to engineers and drive this learning loop and have enough exposure to every aspect aspect of the business to know how to pull together. Well right and that's the critical point. I think as people have looked at initial sales hires where they make so many big mistakes is. This is a person that has those attributes to talk about. They still need to close business. That's it's great to do all these other do things too. But the thing that sometimes companies forget is either they hire. Somebody wants to be a manager. 'cause you sort of describe something that is our manager journal role with Ackerman and insight and ability to certificate to the next level player coach. They WANNA fight you. They gotta play like I be able bring the bring business in. I remember one company has with as hard to start a division and the CIS. We always said the charter. Wish I start. Company had no products. That technology is a very what as long as the customer pays for the development the product go solve any. What but does that type of thing so we had to go to find everything and but you still have to bring customers in? Well sure and so so and so when you're told that does that send up your your spine is complete excitement. I can't wait to visit make you. Does it make you know. Does it make your your your heart fall into your stomach like it does with a lot of people and that right there. How you react in that moment tells me who you are? You're bad person that you you're not staged. That's that's right just a we. Call it stage relevance right I like term about the it's about finding somebody who's stage relevant and it's about that dynamic of taking something someplace new new in a matter if it's a big because it's not about the stage of the company about the stage of the product in a market. And that's why it's it's working so so well in those in in the in the corporate environments where we've applied it and oftentimes look we've been able to find successfully we've been able to find internal hyposcricy the potentially large organizations that At raise her hand WANNA do this. And then when they're properly vetted in screen and then they're they're sitting in a box with with with one of the growth X.. Commercialization leaders learning this process over six months to a year Doing great how. It's becoming a known role in function inside business units of different organizations. It's not just just doesn't doesn't just sit in R. and D. or an emerging technology or any of those areas. It it actually sits in these areas. Sean Sean soft. To handle a canine. Canine Emergency Yeah. Ah Sorry that's a big German shepherd running around but they sit successfully inside of business units in and are tied to the piano and supporting according to digital transformation as we call it a business model. Transformation launching technology products or they're changing business models in a way that have never been done before for a little dog to Tamale the Chihuahua. WHO which one sets off with the other one There's actually a third dog that sets him both off the rescue name. Laura okay all right. She's the one that initiates. All right. Ha Ah so dig into this issue stage relevance because again we were talking about a little bit earlier before I started recording about One of my daily email notes out about future proofing and and stage relevance really relates to that right because the idea stage relevance because people have understand that companies evolve as use cases evolve. And so on that okay you may not evolve with that right. You may have an area of expertise within the sales profession. That is but even that is going to evolve to right right the way that we do things where they reach out to customers. We talked to them. It's all that continues volve even in that stage that you might be a specialist in so we need to keep keep improving. Keep learning earning But yeah I I learned that lesson in my career that you know it's it's it's okay. You're not not always the best at everything. Even though you want the best at everything. No decision has to be made as a as a manager. The company say who who's WHO's the most relevant person to put on this WHO's most suited for for You know up for taking something someplace. And then WHO's most suited for leading a leading driving that The the the either the either the proactive changed in getting out front or or responding to it very quickly and if you WANNA last first up. You're going to have to do that a lot more now than you did. Fifteen twenty thirty forty fifty years ago because the the rate of change in the past which things change now oh is never got has never been faster and it will continue to accelerate. And so you have to be prepared for that. Yeah yeah absolutely I mean I think this is again SPEC stop. We're talking about. This is the way that you do. You prepare yourself for that as you have to keep learning if you're a seller if you're selling a market I sort of use the analogy sometimes as Work with countries. See this all the time you know put together a business. The plan and the rate of growth to project in their business plan is less than the rate of growth of the business. The industry they're in. Yes and and you're saying well. How's this GonNa Work Right? You know this is not sustainable. If you're growing slower than your market well if you're a salesperson. Same thing is true. If you're evolving less rapidly growing growing less rapidly than the way the markets that you're serving are growing then it's inevitable eventually you're gonNA fall too far behind on on your to change look for a change of profession or whatever and that's your choice you wanna make but it doesn't have to be that way I mean it's never been easier to learn and and this is the the big hurdle and be interested to get your advice on what what you'd get people is. This is the big hurdle. These days is for people in sales at people in every profession. But we're talking about sales here today because it's it's not purely sales issue. But how are you evolving. How are you learning? What are you committing because it's not? You can't count on your company to do it for you. It doesn't matter. How big a company you're in? You can't count on them to to keep your current. This is something you got to yourself absolutely at so I've always been My fundamental philosophy in sales generally has always been the same. There's no distinction in between personal development and professional development. If you develop a professional been a time in history where that's been more prevalent in more necessary and more critical than it is today And so at the same time like you said it's also never been easier to learn so this is just simply about changing. Think some some habits and you only have to do this at scale you can do this. These changes very simply for example I don't listen. I don't listen to music in the car or talk radio I listen to you I asked I listen I listen to you know I listen to books. It'll be read bleakest when I'm when I'm out book summary For people who don't know about Blick. Those of us who've been book summary Junkies Forever Robert Because I was on the old soundview out exactly two things back in the day Lincoln. I've been at bleakest user. Eilly wish I had an opportunity to invest in them early on. They're based out of Germany didn't know they existed until I found them too late but An incredible place because ninety percent of books are fillers designed by publishers. Here's to set to sell at a higher price. What are the ten percent key takeaways from every book de absolutely implement? That's what blink does the stills down to that I knew dependence advantis yeah look and I was never somebody I was never a racist reader in the traditional sense like I don't read nonfiction I read I read. I mean I don't read fiction. Excuse me I only read magazines. I read history. I read right now. Salvin personal development and I just those are the things I love him constantly interested in learning more about why I do what I do is not conscious. So there's a lot of ways for all of you to digest information and constantly constantly learn from it but you have to have that initial mindset. That says that this is this is. I'm doing this for the carrot. Not for the stick not doing this out of fear. I'm doing this out of this opportunity to learn grow and be better and then and then and I think you'll see instantly if you have the awareness to it to pay attention to it how your life will just slowly start to change in a very positive way. It has to be a deliberate commitment and I think that Thas The example I use which was Yeah turn off the Bachelor yes Or the Whatever housewives of of Real House or whatever and record the football game game and watch it later with no commercial with no commercials and you've you've created a time for reading absolutely? There's a lot of ways to do it now. That's the point is it's never been easier to get access to that information and time to do it. Quite frankly right exactly. Yes and it's not just sales related content. Although that is where you should start art yeah drives you know what it is to be human when and how you can improve yourself yourself. Deaths response that you get from the rest of the world is is is better and more valuable for you your family and your community absolutely set a better. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA end on that note then we got to. We got through to the injured. Whatever what come back look at won't won't be as long time? We'll have you back. Well the problem is is that you and I should have started recording. That's it's usually the case we talked for half are good stuff but of course we had some personal stuff in there too but So all right right so for people that WANNA learn more and talk about the new surf. self-serve growth ex But people can get access to as well yeah Growth X DOT COM The letter acts Attached to growth And then Academy Dot Com growth ex academy and you can learn whether you are are an entrepreneur. You are seller. You're you're you are A Corporation your your government We do a lot of civic innovation work these days.

Being Like Mike, McNabb on Dalton, Myles Garrett, Isiah Thomas joins

"Speak for yourself. Affront career presented by Jason Marcellus Wiley happy Wednesday happy off days. Fantastic show plan for you today. We're GONNA pull up at Isaiah. Thomas is talk some Lebron James and with Lebron James the same superstar in Isaiah Magic Michael and Larry Bird's era But we're GONNA start today's show talking about Michael Jordan and we'll be joined with Jim Jackson Grip for his insight on Michael Jordan and the ramifications of the last dance documentary. Continue to reverberate around Michael Jordan including now former Chicago. Bull Craig. Hodges coming out and trying to put Michael Jordan on full blast for his comments calling Scotty Pippin selfish and Craig. Hodges upset claiming the Jordan made these comments about joining the Chicago Bulls and they're being a cocaine circus when in reality Jordan just responded to a question about an article that said that the Bulls before Jordan got their worry cocaine circus. Jordan answered the documentary. -Tarian question quick Blaming Michael Jordan for that Charles. Barkley has talked in the past twenty four forty eight hours about the rift between he and Michael Jordan. How they went from being best friends and brothers to not speak. Hindi each other ever since. Charles Barkley was critical of Michael Jordan. As the general manager of the Charlotte Bob Cats and last. But not least. We've seen Michael Jordan during this documentary. Talk about his hate for is Thomas. We've seen in the documentary. Michael Jordan talked about living in this bubble and it leads to the question. Would you really WanNa be like Mike? There was obviously famous. Be like Mike Commercial and watching this documentary watching the fallout from this documentary and getting unique insight into what it was like to be like. Mike. I WANNA ask ourselves and GM's accident Marcelo's rolling here. Would you WanNa be like Mike? Would you WANNA be Michael Jordan? I never wanted to be like Mike. Even in the heyday even when he was popping into cultural cultural sense and him being icon. His greatest powers is great. It's I never wanted to be like Mike for for many reasons. Including probably the core reason of I'm not into doing the identities and trading places with someone of this world beam ourselves while he's been been pretty good to me just to say that and when you start thinking about this mid to experiment and exercise of swapping with someone else. I hope y'all know y'all have to take the good with the bad and the flip side of the coin of being like Mike. Not so attractive. The gambling obviously is an issue. He went through a divorce. More importantly we're we're talking about right. Now is the fact that he may have his boys but he certainly has a long list of X. Boys that I'm not in support of it. In terms of what this documentary documentaries highlighting is highlighting that this is a guy who has this insatiable desire to compete at all costs at all cost all human sacrifice in all human beings in existence. There are too many people who are sitting there suffering because Michael Jordan was in the quest to do one thing. And that's just not the way I WANNA get down. I warrant to win win proposition in terms of how I connect with other people and it just doesn't seem like Michael Jordan was into that Kudos to his success and his record. I'm sure he doesn't WANNA swap. Places will be either but if you WANNA ask if I want to be. Like never did never will interesting. You say that Marcella Essay. This when you were growing up did you. Kinda idolize from football perspective John Elway and Eric Dickerson and because we were younger you didn't really have a clue of about who they were personality wise. You just saw what you saw on that Sunday or interview so that kind of gave you something to admire right. Yep their game. Is the game. Lead it right. So you're answering the question. Now be like Mike or wanted to be like my from a basketball player at. I'm forty nine years old. I can answer that question a lot differently now than I could. When I was fifteen sixteen years old I grew up in a Michael Jordan air. Come fly with me all the stuff that Michael Jordan was all about I Because there was only certain things I knew about Mike at the time when I grew up it was first Dr J. because he had asthma when I was in the Sixth Grade Fifth Grade. I wanted to be like Dr J. Did I love magic? Mike was something different the time and again. It's not like growing up in this era with Lebron James and Kevin Durant Steph Curry. You know everything pretty much about them because social media back then. You didn't know you didn't know some of the details. Michael Jordan's life like you would I to know now about some of our star. I love about the documentary which I've always known because that opportunity and beat around the Bulls in those mid nineties when they were making their championship. Was that Mike wasn't perfect. My hat is flaw. My had his drudges. My had is pettiness. Like we all do. It's just now being exposed to this point to a lot of people especially young people who really don't know the lineage of Michael Jordan highlights. But they don't know the detail they don't know back when you know the whole. China thing came up about Nike in regards to sweat shops and Nike making shoes and Mike and say anything about it at the time. We've talked about praying. Hodges you did regards to go into the White House and ninety one when Craig. Woody wanted to talk to George Bush about some issues in the black community as Michael. About Mike now now. I'm good on that so I would take aspects of love him as a basketball player to have his skill set. You better believe it what I love to have the Jordan brand. You better believe what I have is bank account you damn skippy. I would the aspects of it that I can put to the side because my background. I grew up differently. I see things differently and that older age I think different so our like at some aspects but like you said you gotta be my shoes for year that understand what it could be an Auto Jimmy. You got it all. You do want to say this because I covered part of gyms college career and so there are people that are too young they will think. I'm crazy when I say this but there was a time when Jim was at Ohio. State where people's imagination went to all my God. Jim Jackson might be another version of Michael Jordan. And I say this at all season. Jim had the size. Jim has looks. He has the whole thing the as an athlete and as a player he had a chance to be a great great. Nba Player in the mode of Michael Jordan. And so. I'm just wondering Jim as you look at all the price that comes along with being Michael Jordan and being that great of a basketball player when you look at it now we're forty nine year old is would you have liked to been that great of a basketball player and deal with all the complications that go along with that that. I think are being exposed here from this. Last documentary without a doubt without a our deal with because with successive greatness comes the other side of what my son was seven eighth. Grade Year. Seventy seventh or eighth grade. I told him being. My Son has a catch twenty two. You can't have the good without the bat. You can't separate the two so the sooner you figure out to deal with the adversity. The expectations the backstabbing. The better off you being like our take it in a heartbeat because be at the top of your profession is what we all strive for. And there's you know some things that come along with that and we're not person. I'm not perfect. I'm divorced I messed up. I've done some things in the past but learned along the way through my journey and I think Mike has also but to go back to your original point undoubtedly I love to have his terrip. Being probably be greatest. Ever step on the court in Grayson's with his town myself. Let me ask you a similar question in terms of let's keep it. A football could have been one of the greatest football players of all time reads Lawrence Taylor level at Tom. Brady level. Eight manny and kind of live in that fishbowl world that the greater the great live in. Would you have chosen that? Do you think you would have been able to deal with the complications that go along with that. Oh absolutely I would have chosen every time you went out there and practice and mental preparation let alone on the actual playing surface landfill. That was your choice every time to be that great and when you have your shortcomings you also understand where you are in the stratosphere you do with that reality but it's funny that we're GONNA ask a question like do. I want all of his success without his failures. And we know that. That's the incomplete equation. You GotTa take it all certainly. I would've been able to handle what comes with a higher altitude of success I desired. It landed where I lead it. I had the just to that reality certainly far from Ground Zero but certainly far from the Mount Rushmore or the Goat Status Michael Jordan. But I look. I'm a guy in college. If you look kid I could show you pictures. Every single poster. My Dorm Room was damn near Michael. Jordan quarterly was the consumerism. He was flooding the streets and everybody thought it was cool to be like Mike and I thought it was cool to see my but really I was the beneficiary of Michael Jordan's greatest one hundred pounds ago. I used to get modeling. Gigs no lie in New York City. I got years ago my little muscles six five hundred pounds ago. The ball hair tall dark all mad. Every everything that Michael Jordan couldn't get was looking at me like I'd take this carbon copy of the four second there so look who did. WanNa be like Mike in some respects. But until tally now the question. I have watching last chance dot looking at Michael Jordan on TV talking about I hate Isaiah Thomas. You find out the anger. He played with throughout his career. I starting to question light is Michael Jordan. Happy is is is he because I think we all dream about being as wealthy being a successful being as revered as Michael Jordan but I literally leaving this last last dance documentary wondering if Michael Jordan is happy. Jim You go first marseils. Yeah the final word I mean. And that's and that's a relative term to being happy. Okay especially with Michael Jordan. Because of everything that he's accomplished and we always talk about this on on on this. Show your childhood. Set you up for things that happen to you. When you're an adult. He had a lot of competition with his brother. His whole thing was beaten is problem. Some things had to deal with when he was younger. How much does that play into his competitive nature to always be the best? It would look at Michael Jordan and this is a big missing interpretation of people all the time to say you got all this money. Why wouldn't you be hat is still something out there that maybe you didn't accomplish something that nagged at you as an athlete especially Michael Jordan being the great okay? Was it the article at the time when people were nitpicking. Things is as Thomas. Was it Khadr comparison? I don't know what it is but it's always something there and it does seem like Michael whether it's you know. He hasn't done what he needed to do. In Charlotte Right now. You can see some of come out in this hall of fame speech. He has everything in the world. So why complain but it goes back to the personality. Who and what made him very special is that his relentless drive to be the best what he could be and right now baby whole system rear in particular ownership perspective. He hasn't reached out ENECO yet. And maybe that's what we see a lot of times with kind of the unhappiness on easiness in these interviews that are starting to come out a little bit more. You know in the last thing. Yeah I mean it's impossible to assess because we all wear our happiness different But then said I love with. Jim is talking about in terms of WH- when you're always on this quest to conquer to compete. When is enough enough? There talks about this a lot when you just always in this attaining mode. I need the next get a big house. I need a bigger house. I'll give one carney to cars. If you always are talking about the next then you're never going to be completely satisfied or more importantly field so I look at Michael Jordan to those liquor store. Is that we all care. This is where a lot of joy a lot of pain and a lot of relief. And I think he's really has this unique concoction of all those emotions but he used to be protected. Airspace and literally. You know pointed to protect their restricted airspace. You cannot touch the gold because he lived in so many of our imaginations pre social media just folklore this and we ask the question you ask Jason. Would THIS DOCUMENT MINNA? Remakes looking Michael Jordan differently absolutely better or worse worse one you could see the flaws in Jordan deb before they weren't so tangent they were right there and to you also start to see who he was surrounded by not only in in his team atmosphere but in competition to a player is writing me. Dam and me commenting on twitter. Who would he do? He played against Ed comparing to era. So I think there are now people take shots at Jordan. Debra Ford is documentary. Never had to do that. Stay WHEREVER YOU ARE COMING UP. Bucky Brooks just around the corner. Go out to his crib about Donovan. Mcnabb whose backtracking I think what his comments about Cam Newton back got another black quarterback perhaps being mistreated icepick yourself from the presented by Hyundai. More after this. I'm ED speaker yourself from the CRIB JASON. With Lot Marcellus Wiley. Speak for yourself presented to you by Sunday. Pilots roll out to Bucky Brooks his career. Let's continue a conversation we started. I believe yesterday about Donovan. Mcnabb mcnaughtan made some controversy. Put out a tweet that was interpreted by many of us as playing the race car as it relates to eighty dollars and signing with the Dallas. Cowboys mcnabb tweet. Also any size a one year deal for seven million dollars if he reaches possible incentives James Winston Signs. A ONE YEAR DEAL FOR ONE MILLION. That can't seem to get his contract. He deserved and Cam. Newton is still on the street. Anyone have any questions Am I the only one Donovan? Mcnabb people interpreted this as playing race card. I was one of those people he has since. Put Out tweet today. Clarify last night as I continue to look at read responses from people it truly makes you wonder how people really feel about individuals the fact that. I stated the facts of what we were presented and never mentioned anything about race and people take it. There is hilarious to me. Then is next tweet. I ask say simple question. And people went left with their commentary. It also makes it also makes you think of the issues that people were touching on. I think if you listen to Marcellus Wiley and Bucky Brooks questions to ask yourself right. Nab A of the show obviously You believe mcnabb here that he was not playing the race card. I do believe mcnabb certainly Do anyone who doesn't believe mcnabb still must have reasonable doubt therefore he is innocent of all race card charges You gotta look at this situation like literally matter of fact lot. I think being real if you thought this was about race. Then you tell it on yourself a classic case of projection. If you look at the tweet the first thing about the tweet was about. A white quarterback actually wasn't getting his proper value. So if you continue to look at it through that lens of a quarterback money and value conversation you start to realize he's right and he does not even GonNa get seven million. Don't get three million and he's not gonNA get any instead of because he's a backup and then you start looking at. That couldn't get his money cam. Jobless Jamie's got a low ball offer. He's having a quarterback value money conversation. And I believe that when you start to look deeper into it no one. The mcnabb made one hundred million dollars in his own career. So how dare he claimed victim of being a black quarterback? I really think he asked to open ended questions kind of for people that take were. They wanted to so he can learn from the evidence of. There's more so than suggesting what other people should think. People Kinda got tricked and they changed their own tail but mcnabb innocent of these charges. Nice you know. This is a racial response meeting lose to raise. It didn't say and played the race card directly indirectly insinuated that maybe just maybe there is some racial implications to the reason. Why James was a Dak Prescott? Hasn't got paid yet. And Cam. Newton is still on those streets as this comes from Donovan. Mcnabb understanding the stereotypes that are associated with Khalid an African American quarterback in the National Football League. But let's be honest when Aubrey back to the sixties and seventies blacks plan quarterback and to deal with the stereotypes of a black smarter. Nonni twenty nine. Clean quarterback are black and twenty. It's about your athleticism. Whatever and I'm glad it should bring up late. Wait because in twenty. Yes been progress. There are nice starting quarterbacks that are minority there a backup quarterback. Stan minority six of those being African American. How when you look at what is wanted in the back of quarterback role smarts Guys that can take it from the board to the film. A limited reps is still plays to the stereotypes that blacks can only do it talented with their talent with their minds and those other things. I don't know anybody question about Russell Wilson to Shawn Watson Patrick Mahomes. Lamar Jackson Lamar's the MVP best quarterback in football checks. Russell Wilson's the highest pay Football out think that little is twenty twenty and we gotta deal with what's going on today and it look if there's some personality things about us that don't make a suitable to be a backup quarterback. Maybe we gotta change personality and be a little less big personalities. This has been an issue for me for for by entire life so much personality likes to crack jokes. There's a rollout needed to play as a newspaper columnist and broadcaster Bob. I've had to make some adjustments invest. What needs to go home but again our team sitting out there discriminated against the guys. I just don't see mcnabb's being disingenuous by trying to suggest he wasn't playing the race card here. He's still if he wasn't playing the race card. Here what Megan ratio explain? What's your point was and maybe Donovan has no point and I say this is someone during the mavs career in Philadelphia Shoes Donald Fan. When he went to Washington and went to war with the Shanahan's nobody defended him more passionately stronger than I have. And things just keep coming out with them. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe Donovan it's Donald Monette. Don't know the overtime rules. Donovan mcnabb. Cain these quarterback situations and evaluate them properly without going into twitter. Focus is the race car and now he's got a backpack dion sanders because the he used to be the he's strong man. Stand up and say what your chest out. Data Invest. What you believe. Donald has never been afraid of this when he was playing at as prime he called out the NFL at that time said during his early in his Greece. It is a different standard for black quarterbacks. He said this during his prime in Philadelphia and understood his comments then at that time but in two thousand twenty when the black quarterback is dominating this way and teams just are making those types of when they're going to get a Jordan love and put pressure on a Aaron Rodgers when they go out and get a JALEN HURTS DONALD J. Just stop it man. Don't hide behind Bucky and Marcellus Man. Say which chest out you play the position. Your Bright Guy. Say what you really think. Explain if you WANNA play in the race card at least tell us what it is. You trying to say don't leave it on. Marcellus his hand to try to interpreted well. Let me say Jason. It's not on mcnabb to untangle all of our assumptions in all all the places we want to take. This mcnabb has never been scared to say what he thinks so for him to go there now as a little late in his life in his career all of a sudden he now is scared to go out there and tell you his honest truth and saying what his chest if we read the tweet literally and even Bucky made this mistake. Monkey say indirectly insinuated. I what is me first. Line is about any Dalton. Last time I check he ain't black and he brought him up as his first example but no one else. We only want to read black parts and we went into the second line and finished it. And that's unfair to mcnabb the only thing I can hear my courtroom. That he's guilty of and it's a misdemeanor is throwing a rock in high news hands. He just threw a rock and everybody jumped to their own conclusions. And I've been guilty of this before I walking around with my boys. We walk down the street begging my days when I was playing and young single and I'm like look at her and immediately it could go this way or that way you can say yes. She is fired or you'd like she ain't that you. All I said was look at her now. Were you took? It is weird you took it bucky. I said look at her. Now you get mad at me for saying look at her. That's all you buck. Which you thinking not me and Marcel. I'm surprised I'm sure sometime at Columbia. You took some critical classes. And you're able to do these word problems where you can deduce where we were gonNA maybe desolate North Carolina. I don't know but what I saw was nabbed teat. This up. He talked about Andy. But then after that. Enlisted three black quarterbacks. Any just made you think about look at their place and look at the challenges. I think that mcnabb's frustration with all of this comes from but last year. We had the debate when Cam. Newton went out Allen we request to try and give away Cam Newton's job DAK Prescott has been bowling for the last two years. Any daughter son as a backup and the governor is any daughters wanted to replace. Dak Prescott when it goes all the way back to now talking about the double standard. That is what he's talking about. He's not saying directly that anyone saying. Hey we just these quarterbacks like this and the other quarterbacks in another way he is saying just listened to the temperature of the room and you get all your answers just like the response is that he got back or fire because he put it out there. People told him cells. Let me ask you this. If you say Dak. Prescott has been balling out last two years. What would you describe? Aaron Rodgers as doing and the cloudy of air candidate can go out and draft George Law if they can go out and draft Jordan love Aaron Rodgers Dallas on that Andy Dalton to put some pressure on Dak Prescott we have to define what balling out in entails. Don't put that on that to see because see used the thing that I like about that risk. When it comes to this conversation a year ago it was about. I need to see him. Put Him numbers. They are winning in spite of him. Who So then he says. Okay well I will put up numbers that are career number for me when it comes to yards touchdowns and all those things but now it's like over. They went when we talk about the goal post. Moving that's what we're talking about for. Dak Prescott is what do you want me to do to get this money? And so now. Everyone is having a renaissance in a love affair with Andy Dot. Eighty dollars so great. He's don't put pressure on. Didn't want and look and see any donald replaced by arrive. Philly last year that they take them out. Cincinnati Joe Borough. But I'm supposed to believe only using depth to replace Dak Prescott who hasn't missed the game. I'm just saying this ain't Dak Prescott. Tony Romo from getting his job back. I understand by Abbas alluding to when he brooch but we gotta go but and I know you played in North Carolina Basketball School. So let me work one. Goalpost one goal post and the goal closest said on balling out and winning. They go hand in hand. The the you played a game to win erm members told you that so of you all out and go eight ball out. He walked out and go twelve and four or just meteo her go twelve four. That's the purpose of the gay. But again you you went to North Carolina. That's Dean Smith and Roy Williams School Michael Jordan. School Nobody Taylor. GonNa give them on. We gotTA keep moving margins into Rachel corner classes. Why people say he should be the highest paid defensive in football twenty five million a year. They're crazy speak for yourself. From the CRIB. The crib presented by Hyundai Jason. Whitlock Marcellus Wiley. On a wonderful wins the day roll rollouts. Lavar area since crib and we're GONNA talk about Myles Garrett. Last time we saw him on a football field he was slamming his helmet into Mason. Rudolph things a lot better for miles gary right now irreparable reporting bed. Jared could be the first twenty five million dollar a year. Pass rusher Garett of course last year played ten games had ten sacks year before had thirteen and a half sack played in one pro bowl but is now being talked about as a twenty five million dollar eight year. Pass rusher ourselves judy. The expert here is miles geared or twenty five million a year absolutely. He's worth it We're talking about not only his production his potential. And then you also have the map on the calendar in terms of win this deal may be struck it could be an extension and it may not be an extension but think about it. They already picked up his fifth year option. So we have two more years potentially even franchise situations but two plus years you will see Maoz gear. Be a guy who eclipse is twenty five million dollars annually and let's talk about his production but I think a lot of times it gets lost in terms of what. A defense alignment is being on the field in terms of grade when our delight room we used to always have this thing called sat. Great coach basically wanted to know you started a game. What's the percentage change? You're going to sack the quarterback you know where myles Garrett is right now. Eighty seven percent of the time. That's to give you some reference. Bruce Smith career seventy-five percent now. Obviously these numbers are skewed when you play longer typically your sack rate decreases but Utah like stray hand. Sixty nine percent. Utah guys now. Like Channel Jones Eighty three percent. And you got to seven percent almost every game that he starts. He's bringing at quarterback down and they know that yes. These injuries yes. He had a suspension but boy does he have off the chart ability and production when you look at when he goes out there. What comes in terms of production. He's to get that twenty five million. I think he deserves. Yeah I'm saying yes as well. I think my reasoning is different. It's it's based upon the consistency of what I've been saying when I discussed matters around Dak Prescott or any other player that that is seeking to get a high contract. Which is you are. You are worth what your employer is willing to value you at. You put a number out there. Mouths guarantee people are putting a number out there and that number is agreed upon by his employer then the distinct relationship between the employer and the employee is saying that once. We sign on his dotted line. Are Names dry? The ink is dry? The TS are crossed. I's dotted. You're saying the agreement and the relationship between you. The employee you employer says that this is my bad you to this company so to me. The Cleveland browns within their their room of negotiation and their brain. Trust their roundtable of decision. Makers say that they see value Emmaus Geir where they're going to make him the highest-paid pass rusher position won't Lavar Z. Worth Twenty five million dollars. I don't care about the Brown one hundred percent but you have to care because that's where the twenty five million is coming from so twenty five to me. He's he's worked twenty. Five May of twenty five million is coming from the bank account of the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland Browns Fan it. Then we don't have the Cleveland browns. Is He going to produce at twenty five million dollar pay? Is He the NFL problem? The problem with what you're saying is is that you're basing the parameters of him getting twenty five million dollars off of what you think he's GonNa Produce on the fail. It is the value of what the Cleveland browns believe or perceive them to be as to why he's going to get that twenty million people have been highest pay have not been productive guys and still get paid. Odell Beckham has gotten paid. He hasn't been the highest productive type of guy but he wasn't. He was valued enough to the pay that he was able to get at one point the Seattle seahawks valued Matt Flynn and whatever ridiculous rate that it was and people like me went on TV and say hey man that's ridiculous. He ain't work that he didn't do it enough in his previous job to justify that amount of money that's the discussion we're having about Miles Garrett. I think Marcel has made a pretty good argument about his sack rate. And Look I'm a critic Myles Garrett I think he's a flake goofball I don't trust characterizing the locker room but in terms of when you put that film on a game. Does he get to the quarterback and I understand how important it is to get to the quarterback and this guy does it consistently win. He's available? Would I pay him this money? No because I questioned his character and will he be able to stay on the field in terms of doing dumb things that get him into trouble. He's like a different version of volunteers. Perfect volunteers verdict does a lot of stuff out of malice and stupidity gets him into trouble. Miles Gary does things stupidity to get him into trouble on the field and could have more suspensions but as a pure pass rusher is he arguably the best one going in the NFL right now had he not been suspended last year with that have been crystal clear when him probably having sixteen sacks for the season probably but to me the character issues. Kind of say. I would proceed with caution and before I start talking about giving us do some kind of major payday. I need to see one full year of this. Do go through the NFL. Without any controversy without anything to distract from the without anything that hurts the team. Yeah I mean look what you're talking about. I'm glad we can. Now hone our focus into when you get on the field. What the hell are you doing and only Shaq Barrett I've seen and Chandler Jones of recent memory is doing what Myles Garrett is doing and part of that Isabella ability but in terms of like Shaq Barrett has one hundred eighty percent. That means now get on the field and get one SEC. He going to be coming close to get his second sack most games. And that's a high click rate when you talk about these guys and just don't win a little love for you guys myles. Garrett has started thirty five games and already has thirty eight point five six thirty point five six thirty five game. You know what I mean. He sucks I had in my first thirty five starts thirty four this. I should have got paid a long time ago. Brother just don't know how you boys did it. It was a real guy. Twenty five million a year as well. I we got to keep it rolling. Isaiah Thomas. Nba Hall favor. A Co Star in the last dance documentary Thomas from his crib. Speaking yourself boy after this. I want them to speak yourself from the Crib Jason with Marcellus Wiley happy Wednesday. Let's roll out to Isaiah. Thomas Grip be former piston great. Nba Hall of Famer two time NBA champion and Co Star of the last Das- documentary unintimidated. I'd say you have made a comment though we brought you on today because you made a comment that really irks me. Which is unusual for you but you said that the athletes up today aren't getting the credit that they could and Lebron and Kevin durant these guys would have dominated your ear of the NBA disagree with that. But why do you believe this about Lebron James and why would he been so dominant in your era And both of you being athletes You we all come to the table and normally if all things being even bigger faster stronger athletes win now. The only way a smaller person has any chance of beating a bigger stronger faster. Athlete is if the bigger faster stronger. Athlete makes a mistake. Which Ghia that mall or player a chance to win when I look at Bron. James Ian Kevin Durant if you put both of them in our area and if you were to put Kevin Durant on on our team with the Pistons or if you put Lebron James on all team with the Pistons You know both of those guys would be probably the the best players in the best scores on our team. And when I look at those two guys as being freak you know in in the Modern Day era and if you put him back on air they would have been free because of their athleticism. I've never seen two players like durant and Lebron James Ever in all NBA with the size in the skill sets that they both possess. I wholeheartedly agree with you. Is a look the only counter to that conversation really is world if the guys of yesterday had all the technology the mindset ed the access etc the medical resources. Things will be different for those guys as well true when we're talking about the physics bigger faster stronger and if you look at the volume two collection of athletes now. I dare someone to look at the talent level of the sixth man back into the eighties versus the sixth man. Right now in terms of what you're seeing is just a different animal and it's okay. I think. Only the Eagle holds on that thinks that this world is not evolving in sports or not evolving as well. These guys are walking in the gym jumping out the GM but back in the day we heard Jordan rules and others say if he just doesn't get the air we have a chance. Well good luck having a strategy. Now because everybody's in the damp air so you can just see looking at yesterday. No slight to greatness because greatness cuss through era but the average job yesterday wouldn't even be known today because they're just too many talented guys but you know when I my position would be my position. Isaiah would be if Kevin Durant play back in your era. He would play the game differently. He might have a post game. He might be the next iteration of cream. I build a bar. If Lebron was played in your air he might have played the game. The Way Karl Malone played it rather than the way the game is played today. That is absolutely true. And that's where coaching and schemed and system comes in And and and I you know it's like Michael Jordan is is is probably the greatest you know. Wayne score that that's ever play the game and the reason why I say Wayne Score because when we we don't we don't count you don't count Chamberlain and we don't Count Corinne in in the conversation. So now I put in the category. He's the greatest wings score ever He and Lebron tank. Now that being said if Michael Jordan played in today's era he would be a different player. He would probably have a coach saying to him. He couldn't take the mid range shot Michael Jordan with either beat Dunkin or shooting point shot. He'd be great at both of them but the thing that he's known for in terms of being you know probably the greatest mid range player we would see that in today's game if he was in this. L. Okay but also I think the way. Y'All competed in that. Era is completely different than the way guys compete. In this era the competition was more fierce in your ear. Do you disagree with that I think because of the physicality of the game That was allowed Doing era It definitely Y- definitely makes you A little bit more competitive And make things tougher for you because of the physicality So you know re resistance is always good you know and in both of you. Are you know know former football players? So you know you if you put Jerry Rice and in today's game You know who's GonNa Cover on Bacon? Cover back then you put him in. Today's where you you you know. He can run down the field and he can go across the middle back. When you guys are playing football you know. Very few receivers win across the middle That and in Basketball. The rules are very similar to football. Everything has changed so consequently. The statistics have gone up in football just like the statistics have gone up in individual performances in basketball. But there are a lot of things that you can do. Now in basketball is like in football. There are a lot of things that you can do that. You Know Fifteen twenty years ago. You know you just couldn't do. I got a crazy story real quick about the exactly. What you as Jason. Great question because things look tougher doesn't mean that they're better. We had a slower receiver in Jacksonville. One time in training camp running running running throw the ball deep route. He don't four caught at the crowd erupted. You know what our coats it. If he was faster he wouldn't have the dive. That's my point. That's what we're seeing right now. These guys ain't gotta do on. That pay are for this crazy. Sorry really big. They they are different. You know I before I met Steph Curry Thought Steph curry and I was the same side and then when I met him. He's bigger than me know. Thank you so much we gotta keep it moving one back when the last dance documentaries over because really. WanNa get into that in depth Jason. We Love Marcellus Wiley only Wednesday after bill uncle. Jimmy's just around the corner. More speaking after this Bob. I just briefly yourself from the crib. Jason Lewis Role. After Jimmy's Korea give take uncle Jimmy. You know you WANNA be like Michael Jordan you go. Hey Mike had brothers trying to be like Mike. The deadly note that they was trying to be like Mike. Mike had brothers dressing clean. Clean Cut clean-shaven no tattoos one airing and that was guest. Michael Jordan show showed up with to work digit job. You'd win sooners retired what did the NBA Duke Body. And Alan Iverson.

Now when you go out you cash, what's in your wallet terms apply? Here. Put it on the poll. Is it offensive that Drake has more top ten hits than the Beatles at lebatardshow on Twitter, wanna talk to Ron McGill, the telephone number seventy six four five, six four eight three seven this is always an entertaining, and formative segment? And he will be doing play by play on a video that involves the animal kingdom that is usually pretty good at the end of this Charles. You're on with Ron McGill of zoo Miami. Go ahead. Charles iran. I'm originally from Alaska and we have these animals called muss Cox, and they are amazing animals, and my dad when I was growing up. I'd seen the one that was way from the heard it was obviously, old and dying. But he, he kind of made a friend of it for the last couple of weeks of his life, and I was wondering what your the most guys have been around since the Pleistocene area, almost as long as Greg, Cody, they'd be loving, Greg, Cody, and so just wondering if what was the most amazing man will that you animal that you have. I've seen in the wild. Geez. You know, like you say musk ox are pretty incredible. They deal with cold temperatures beyond almost what any mammal can deal with. So they're pretty incredible. Most amazing animal. I guess I seen in the wild for me. I have to say it's going gonna sound boring and most people with my tiger the first time I saw tiger in the wild. I was on foot, no gun, no nothing with a guide walking through a place called bond of gar and literally, you know about twenty yards in front of me. There was a tiger staring at us through the bamboo and to be able to see tiger. I on foot in the wild. That's one of those moments. You never forget. I mean my favorite saying the world is, you know, life is not measured by the number of breasts. You take it's measured by the number of times, your breath is taken away. And that was a breathtaking moment. Ellison, just blurted not with the best timing, that air conditioning is better than sliced bread and she's right air conditioning, a better than sliced bread. It came before sliced bread. Joey, you're on with Ron McGill zoo Miami. Go ahead. Hey, Ron first time, long time calling them a mobile phone. I live out here in east Hollywood, Florida and the mosquitoes are getting pretty bad this time of year, and we have a bad house, but it's not set up. So I was wondering if you could tell me how to set up the house and attract about and also how much freshwater do we need to provide? You don't need to provide any freshwater for the bat, the best thing I can tell you, because this is a very short radio segment is go to YouTube say, set up a bad house, you'll see the great advice there on where to sit at the height to sit, you know, the type of shade to put it into, but about house is one of the best control items. You can have from mosquitoes anywhere in south Florida. You don't know how to set up about how about how do you, you're just sending people to the internet and just saying go you Dan. I'm trying to do because you always tell me before I go on this show. Ron keep your answer short short. We got a lot of callers keeping short don't go into these, these essays about things. So I was trying to respectfully listened to the host of the program. I'll make an exception this time. Tell me how to make a bad house you fraud. Okay, a bad house. Basically the bats have to come in from underneath it almost looks like a bird feeder, with wood on the side. You gotta have an overhang on it, but you have to have your opening underneath, and you have to have flats inside that the bats can connect to it cannot be in the, in the pure son, and has to be an shaded area and being away from where the sun rises. So the not hitting even when it rises, okay. And in a quiet reclusive area. You can put it up on a pole, you can put it up on any kind of poll, you can even put up on the side of a big barn, or a big house up against, but you don't wanna do that, because what it does is they produce amount of feces that has a very strong smell to it, so you want erect any kind of poll anywhere near to an open field area. Not gonna be direct sun. I retract my accusation, you're not a front rank it. Can we go onto the next question? Now, run questioned the other day that I didn't have an answer for ten. You domesticate an octopus. Can I have a pet octopus, if I had enough money for a big enough aquarium there octopus that are? Inequality in private of Koreans, but you need to know what you're doing because the octopus is the number one escape artists of any marine animal the number one escape artist. I seen octopus that, you know, have a head the size of your fist. Get between a slap that you couldn't put a piece of paper through so they are escape artists, you need to know what you're doing. They are not easy to maintain the human care, but it has been done. And I do know that Aquarius series, of course, have been able to do it, but incredibly intelligent incredibly entertaining, to watch the way they can change color on the snap of a finger that can change color, but they are escape artists, and they don't need. They'll, they'll scape out of the water and, and survive moving around out of the water run when you consider their intelligence and the fact that no other animal in the animal kingdom is quite like the octopus. What do you think about the theory that occupy are actually an alien race? I, I don't believe in that Mike. I know that something you wanna believe in you, you youngsters you'd like to get into all that stuff. I would want to think that it is some type of alien race. But the reality is, is just a wonderful invertebrate from the rain world. That is fascinating like so many other animals that we don't know enough about who's the second base best escape artist in the animal kingdom. Oh, jeez. Had I don't know. I mean, you know, it depends on what you're looking at some primates are very intelligent. I have seen primates try to open locks with sticks, because they see keepers us, you know, keys, and try to open lots with stick, so they, they can find different ways to open different things. But as far as the octopus, I don't know of anything like the octopus. Man, I think just is able to just morph it self into different shapes and sizes and get through the penny of told it's unbelievable to post versus Houdini who escapes, I talk to put. Catherine. You're on ESPN radio. Catherine go ahead. Hi, ron. I was at the Kennedy Space Center yesterday, and they have this very big old, eagle's nest, but it's a dead tree, and they said eventually it'll have to come down. We'll the eagles know that it's unstable faith and move or someone going to have to take down before they, they let any more eggs. There know what will happen is the eagles, don't know that the trees going to die. They're going to relocate. They're not going to relocate until the nets falls or is removed. So I'm sure the biologists what they will do is when they have anticipated that, that tree is on its last legs, so to speak as soon as the nesting season is over and the chicks fledged, and there's going to be a good amount of time before the next nesting season. They will remove the nest and the tree and the birds. Hopefully will we built another nest? Mike, you're on with Ron McGill of zoo Miami. Go ahead, Mike. Bron. Are we seeing more reports with giant squids sightings, because of rising sea, temperatures and climate change? If so what we see more rare deep sea creatures coming up. Tell us more about these giant squid McGill their absolutely phenomenal. You know, for the longest time, they were like the mystery animal of the of the ocean. We know that things like sperm whales feed on them and we would we be able to observe sperm whales and have the huge scars in their side from the squid. And, you know, the, the, the suckers on the pentacle of these squids, actually make scars on the sides of the sperm whales, when they when they eat them sperm wheels, we'll dive more than a mile deep a mile. That's five thousand plus feet down into the ocean to get these squid. And it wasn't until just recently, it was just a few years ago where some Japanese oceanographer actually got footage of one, which was like the first ever, the only ones that ever seen with these, these squid. There were washing up on the beach. But I think it's a combination of things I think there's obviously some climate change going. But it's also our technology is giving us much better equipment that's able to us to see these animals on a more free. Basis. So listen, we know less about the ocean than we know about the moon. So I think we're going to be seeing some incredible discoveries and that combined with climate change in different types of environmental changes in the ocean. We might be seeing animals that God don't even occur in your worst nightmares, as far as the alien SCI fi movies, go. I mean Mike is going to have all kinds of theories about, we're being invaded by alien creatures when you see some of the stuff that's been living in the ocean forever. Squid octopus coexist in the same waters, and do they get along the coexist in the same waters. They don't necessarily get along. I understand octa occupy, generally speaking are a mobile along the floor the surface of the ocean, where squid are mobile more like fish. They swim like fish. Unlike occupy even knocked if I can do that, of course, going from, but they tend occupied just go from one to the other different types of hiding areas along the surface bottom where squid or swimming more like fish run. There's several articles about this about how meteors brought octopus eggs. Oh my God. On meteors. What makes up ice watered? Thank you very much. I went again. Sometimes, you know, this thing about jocks and their intelligence regarding nature. I don't know Sebastian. That's a stereotype. It's generalization Sebastian on with Ron McGill of zoo Miami. Hey Ron, I have a question Elvis. I'm known for their memory. Is there any other animals that are good for their memory as well? I think a lot of animals have great memory. I mean we talk about elephants, because we have more, I think, interactions with elephants, and they're easy to study. But I think many animals have great memory, generally speaking, most animals, have great memory and just like what they eat. You know that allow some animals like monarch butterflies, for instance, to survive Berta lead monarch, butterfly, it'll get sick. It won't forget, it got sick for meeting that monarch, butterfly, it won't eat monitor butterflies anymore. That's a good memory it remembers by looking at that monarch. Oh, no. That thing made me sick last time. Okay. And it can have the same memory can be attributed to recognizing not just food sources but alliance. With other animals certain flowers that provide good food sources, we always think of memories. Oh, does he remember him as a friend? I think animals do remember that. I think everybody seeing that incredible video of the lion. That was raised by somebody, and then, you know, six years later, the guy comes back, he's a line in the wild and lion comes running up to him and hugs him. I mean so animals have memories for things that made an impact in their lives. That one that one move me every time I see it. What is pretty moving? What do you have play by play wise for us on the video? Okay. Let's see what Lorenzo sent today. Okay. Well, this is this is like some animal characters some guy dressed up like oh, I know what? This is this is one of these animals escape drills and Japanese. Oh, yeah. He's walking on escape almost scape. We actually do these drills here at Arzew, but we don't just some guy up in a stupid. Oh my God. I think they got nets. Oh, like the lion. Is gonna stop in the guys are wearing hard hats and boots with blue outfit and the lions potable. Oh, no. Oh, you always want attack because call it takes guy out. All right. Like he's going to stop. He was gonna hit the net. And bounced back let me tell you some that guy. Would be dead, if they're going to try to get a lion putting up a little met with guys helmet. Come on. That's ridiculous. Okay. Oh, you gotta go with the Darko now in in a van. Okay. So they're going to start them. That's, that's a much better thing. You protect yourself in the van you and looking at the real lions looking at it on the real life going, we'll get a joke. Darted. He falls down. This is a flipping joke. Oh, poking them with a stick to make sure he's out cold. Oh. So now they've recaptured the line at escape from the zoo. Well, you know what they haven't done that before he killed like three people holding up that net. And then you got the guys with the helmet to helmet like the helmets going to protect these guys. And the little blue has met uniforms on the radio. They're lifting up the tranquilize line and putting them back in the van. That's just ridiculous. Don't ever try to catch a lion with you're going to die. Thank you run. We appreciate that. You really carried what was a very poor video of a guy in a lion costume island. Dan's puppets.

Everything for less only at WalMart. This is what I'm telling you about the south beat session that just came out here with areola Wani. Even if you do not care at all about mixed martial arts. You will find this. This interesting. It has a lot of human dynamics that are interesting to look at when the Commissioner of your sport. I'm sorry, not the Commissioner of the powerbroker in your sport. The face of your sport. Dana white has all this power and doesn't come from any kind of journalism background. And so, he's used to having a great deal of power and used to that power controlling everything, including journalists. And so you will listen to that, and you will find interesting what area who wanna has been through as a as somebody who's been trying to cover that sport. And lending that sport, a real legitimacy and credibility because of the way he does his job. I was here. I think I've been here for most of the south Pete sessions and outside of maybe the Chris Bosh one. I think this one was my favorite. It's just really enjoyable and I went into it with not the highest expectations. He was really good. Chris are you saying that this could potentially be the best south beach session? Ever, I said, well, be careful be careful with that. Greg, Cody of the Miami Herald is super interested in wrapping himself in the flag, and being a an, an enormous fan of US women's soccer, because there's nothing America likes more than dominance. Yeah. But they sure didn't dominate yesterday's match two to one over Spain came back from a one nil deficit. The, the first time this whole they were winning one nothing. That's true. They were tied. They were they were winning one. Yeah. Came back from a tie. Yeah. Immediately almost immediately. Just ask talk about this six minutes. Go sit only box other way, don't go sit in the penalty box minutes later. It was three minutes. Go sit in the penalty box that second goal by the way was absolutely a penalty. Get out of here. Come on, man. It's a women's World Cup. He he's got conviction. Come on, Greg dust yourself off. Get back on the horse and gimme a take. I never fell off the horse. He pushed me. It was a penalty, kick an old soccer coach, who I covered for years had a saying about so-called soft penalties and in follows that were barely penalties. No such thing as barely penalty. If it was a penalty, it was a penalty, the, the US player did not trip over her own feet. The wind didn't knock her down. She was stripped by the, the slate foot of the of the Spanish defender and and it was absolutely legitimate penalty. I just hate people who are claiming it was os assault penalty. You can't call a penalty and that situation and a one one World Cup game. Yeah. You can. I don't care if it's in the ninetieth minute, if it's a penalty call it. Greg, can you name any of the players who are involved in that play? We'll rose Lavelle was the US player. Honestly, I don't know who the Spanish defender was boo. Man. What do you think about Friday's showdown with the host nation French national team before you answer that I want to jump in here? You're a little bit of a fraud because you wear this American flag, but yesterday, it was yesterday or Sunday, you were rooting for France heavy, 'cause you're part French what yeah, I was rooting for France, what I want the I wish this feels like the championship match US France the to betting favorites. I wish it were the championship match. I hate that. They're meeting. In the early around it, it's these are the two best teams with due respect to Germany, and maybe England, but, you know, it's just yeah, I I'm a Homer. I root for the United States in international competition unapologetically. They're fun to watch the US seem, but they have to play better against France. The US team that beat Spain yesterday does not beat France on Friday. Alex Morgan needs to step up. Alex Morgan, Mike, I think, really let herself be thrown off by the Spanish, close, marking and aggressive fouling. She was just totally knocked off her game. I thought Joe Ellis made a mistake, and not subbing her off the substitution have been a little questionable with Jill L is and to your point. Spain was absolutely penalty because it was a foul in the box. And that's what the definition of a penalty is Spain was playing a very aggressive game. And it took the United States largely credited Spain. It took them out of their game. But that's what happens when you play like that. Sometimes it can see through. Penalty. I will also say that the Spanish goal was totally the fault of the US goalkeeper, who dumbly distributed roll the ball out to a defender, who was well, marked at the time and pick pocketed, and, and it was one of several legitimate, chances Spain had related to sloppy defence which has to be I know they only gave up one goal. But their defense was not sharpen needs to be Friday Grigson. He's roots for the US unapologetically. Have you ever rooted for anyone? Apologetically. Let me think about that or question. Probably Mike Tyson donlevatar, many of you by the way are writing, and, and you're saying, Dan quit being so mean to co host that you always deem incompetent. That's the formula man me being mean to the co host is what allows to gots to take very wealthy vacation right now. Still God's it's a winning position for everyone, but me have you guys, not figured this out yet. That's the whole thing is me, being rotten straight man as everyone else gets to be incompetent. I yell at them for being incompetent. And here's the miracle of it in the magic, elixir bad, which is the only thing Greg Cody can be becomes good and lovable. And it's because standing next to obnoxious, strident me, makes everyone look that way and the brush with death helped. Yeah, that was planned by me. The whole thing was contrived these. They live with our show with this two gods on ESPN radio. So mean and Billy were talking during the break. I don't know. How did you guys even happen upon that conversation, what happened to trigger that conversation? Do you want the question? I want to know how we got there. I wanna know how you got there. And I want the question to be a surprise for the audience. Okay. So I was on Twitter and I went down one of these rabbit holes and I saw the daily show tweeted out something like if I told you in two thousand and nineteen and had a bunch of scenarios. One of them was Billy Ray Cyrus, got a standing ovation at the BT awards. So then I Google because I didn't see his performance. So I grew GL Billy Ray Cyrus BT awards. I watched the whole performance, and then we started having a conversation, me and Amina night. Mean points out, you know, little nauseous, always has to be a cowboy now, doesn't, he like, what's the next John river song? And it has to be a country song. Right. So, so the whole thing was the ideal was he made the song kind of goofy a little bit, right? What the country songs from trap music behind it. But now he's this international stars the biggest song in the country, and I've seen him show up to, like speaking gig into elementary schools, and the kids, get crazy when they see him but he's dressed like a cowboy the whole time. Yeah, he always has boots. He always has Spurs. He has like, he seems to have a full wardrobe of cowboy gear. So then the question obviously the natural question was, Dan. If I were to tell you twenty five years ago, you could be the biggest thing in media, but you have to dress like a cowboy for the rest of your life, and you're going to be known as the cowboy media, get would you do? No, no, I would settle. I'll settle for something that doesn't have to be the number one thing if I don't have to wear a cowboy outfit everywhere, I feel like speaking from a place of privilege right now because you already here if you. You were a lowly kind of nobody in media and somewhat. Okay. Okay. That's a different question. It didn't get to go back twenty five years like into your thinking. Now the answer is still. No, but you could be talented enough that you get past the cowboy thing, but new yet. No well, we'll find out when your career out, but at the beginning for the first year, so you definitely have to be the cowboy every day, sometime much of a stretch, even a Smith. Does this at least six times a year? Stephen Smith has absolutely become the biggest thing in sports media, at least in part by putting on a blackout boy, hat, and just attacking and cowboy fan he's there, a costume that you would say, yes, you select lets you said, no to cowboy what if it was like space, man, you be the space man of journalism. Well, I've, I've gone fat skateboarder I already chose that. And I don't think anybody would have cho- chosen that one in five years ago, point by, Dan. It's not like he doesn't already dress pretty ridiculous. I feel like astronaut astronauts would be an upgrade for me over the way that I normally dress. So which is saying that's the deal you did with the devil. I'll give you the number one show in America. But you gotta be a fat skateboarder for the rest of your life. And Dan said sign me up. How about you, Cody, you would do it in a second for oh my God. I in fact, let's say I mean first of all, he wore a Zardo costume here on the show, if you're not familiar with czar, does he lost a grid of death punishment, and Greg, Cody dressed up in a Sean Connery, sort of borat. Thong uncomfortable thing. I I'm telling you game. Oh, if I told Greg, Cody that he could be the biggest sports media member in the world or in America. But he had to dress like czar does all. The time he would absolutely take it. He would walk. He would swagger into every press conference with a ponytail and something that feels kind of phone. You go ahead and dispute it looked great. But Greg keep in mind, you'd be respected. It's not like I mean right? You'll work would be respected, work respect, what you have to dress like that every single day. I, I wouldn't do that. But you know what I would do that? The idea of dressing like a cowboy everyday really appeals to me, I would wear a cowboy hat right now, if there was one of the why don't you start doing that? I'll read tweet your columns. I'll start retweeting columns. I will start retweeting your columns. If you take on a full cowboy persona in futures you have to wear boots and chaps and a whole thing, chaps, yet, chaps, you need to chat, any of that stuff. Well, that cowboy hat, I know that's not enough. Now I have two or three cowboy it's gotta be full. Kabul fell. You gotta go full cowboy but not chap yet fine. We'll exchange chaps for you. Just having a LASSO over your shoulder. The I mean Greg. No, I don't know is you give up on chest. Because here's the deal. Little doesn't just get to wear a hat, and that's it. He's gotta wear the whole singles on. It's gotta be chips, too, but this idea of Dan being the devil. Now Dan, is offering you this deal. I will re tweet every single column ab- yours, I will return ity as long as you keep wearing the cowboy get up every time you hear. All right. If Mike Ryan buys it with the show budget. I will I will wear it deal until we get tired of meat dressing, like a cub way then I'll stop wearing it. Okay. No. I'm here. The really continue in perpetuity. I no no, no. That's not the deal. I have it on tape, the deal, we struck is for as long as you come in here. Fully dressed like a cowboy no shortcuts. Okay. Right. No short wear. Whatever he wants to be. So you'll y you heard it, you guys just heard you guys just heard I'll wear whatever he buys. You guys jut that as a fatal mistake, you just me finding contact right? There is a cowboy related, it'll be cowboy related is exactly how deals with the Bella go, by the way, say something like that. Yeah. And then he holds its is right there. We have a deal a deal has been struck and the parameters of this deal are as follows Greg, Cody will wear any cowboy related stuff. Mike Ryan brings in in exchange for us retweeting. His columns from the Twitter. Ills and village people. You know what I would love is the forties. Cowboy look like anybody mix. Greg, you Tom a fatal mistake here. Greg do not get to choose, because DC these chaps wait till you see, whatever it is. It might try and is going to buy it some sort of Sexto for. I mean, the chaps are chaps, and they look like pants outside for the center, like it's easy to go to the path in with the I got nothing to hide. I mean, I do I do think you need to buy them. We have to have in the back. He's gotta be a combo woodmen. He's gotta be a risque cow knows the east gotta be. I wanna be a legitimate.

Dan's puppets dance. Fatal mistake Brighton. I mean, like Egypt, I mean, just brutal that he said, I'll wear whatever you guys by. I'll be a self respecting Kabwe as soon as he headed. I knew. Track. Talk to my lawyer autocrat donlevatar. My hair is unfashionably age inappropriate long perhaps the longest and has been since college and may continue as such. I'm not sure why last vestiges of the. Of the extreme outer limits of midlife crisis to God's futile shield held wobbly against the encroachment of mortality, maybe the last stage before the onset of mister, Rogers style sweaters and the silence rendering acknowledgement of official old aid. All truth. You always wrote, you would be like one of America's greatest authored DCC donlevatar show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. That is Greg, Cody of the Miami Herald.

He could hoisted that drove in front of the people Milwaukee who love him and cherish him and wanna see their MVP be successful. Instead he did it to a bunch of people man. He shouldn't even like that. That's what it was. That's what always is all these awards because guys are insanely competitive. No one's gonna sit there like, yeah you go ahead and win guy.

742: Universal Truths for Sales, with Shari Levitin

"It's time to accelerate K.. Friends this is Andy. Welcome to twenty twenty. This is the first episode of the New Year The new decade as a matter of fact so today is episode seven hundred forty two of accelerate accelerate sales podcast record so another excellent episode. Mind up through to this. At first of this year the first of the decade and it's only appropriate that guest is Sherry Levin Sherry is the author of a best selling book titled Heart and Sell Ten universal truths every salesperson. Person needs to know. And we're GONNA be diving into these universal truths for salespeople now Sherry used her sales consulting experiences to write a book. There's really more of a life book and I think it's so important to talk about sales because we're GONNA talk today about why who you are matters more necessarily than what you you do and this has been a theme. I've been writing about an I really liked the way he talks about her book. And we're going to get into the difference between what she points out his resume values and eulogy the values. I think I brought by David Brooks his book on character and a eulogy virtues. What makes the difference in today's digital firm? I think about a list of things that you're supposed to that you list on your resume fist. But what is it that people say about you at the end of your life. Those are the things things that we want to communicate with our buyers. So we're GONNA dive into why also it's necessary for a company not only reward quota achievement but also lupin equal emphasis on rewarding personal growth personal individual growth Sherry gives an example. She shares her company provides a budget everyone in the company that they can spend on their own personal element. And I think the so important for sales because we put increasing targets on our sales people but then we don't measure whether we've you've invested or they've invested appropriately to grow in order to hit those increased targets so then take a spin through Sheri's ten universal sales truths and after we get through all of them. That's okay because you're gonNA make sure you purchaser book and read it to get to all ten and I said before I recommend you do that. So we'll get into all that and much much more but before we get sharing. I WanNa take a minute talked about vanilla soft fennell. Soft is the industry's leading sales engagement platform but most people simply referred to as the solution is a solution to ensure sales development reps. Make the right number of attempts every lead. It's the solution to ensure sales sales development reps us more than just email that they consistently use linked in and even the dreaded telephone as part of their sales playbook it's the solution to serve serve the sales development rep the next best lead over and over again so at the hit their numbers. The solution starts at the right sales canes and that's why you need to check out LAS guide had on sales cadences. It's titled Sales Cadences. What works what doesn't and why you're frustrated? You can get your copy now your free copy at Vanilla soft dot com Ford Slash. Andy Paul that is the no soft dot com forward slash Andy. Alright let's jump into it Sherry welcome to accelerate bank. Thank you andy. Glad to be here. What's a pleasure finally? Have you on the show. I can't believe we didn't make it happen before I know we but we only met I nine months ago which is surprising to me but I had heard of you. Your patient precedes you. Is that a good thing or a bad thing. No you were billed as the smartest man in Sales Roy. Yeah joke on John. Oh my gosh yeah. I'll have to to put that on paper APOR. She did say the smartest man no. Yeah I was going to say so that though. She's no fool. No it's fun. I met Jill I'm out of late comer to this game of writing books about sales and all that stuff and Moore the first time she and I had a certain extended conversation. I told her I said you know. We're designing a new website and told his honor. Look at what Jill does and just copy that pat just told us so. Were you joining us from today. I'm in Park City. Utah where it's going to hit. Twelve degrees by the end of the day is gorgeous. It's sunny it's beautiful and we're getting snow so we'll have great skiing Probably within a week or two AH GONNA ask that. Yeah okay so slopes aren't quite open yet but soon and we're praying for a good snow year perfect. Wow so good friends that that are planning on retiring to park city so it's nice place it is all right. Well we're going to talk about your book heart and sell ten universal truths every salesperson. needs to know so guess. First question is what was the impetus to write the book. I wanted wanted to write a book for years and years. I started my company ninety seven and we grew and mostly on a live. Training model also operations would higher than it was very expensive to have us. Come in you know we you know I would come in or one of our trainers would come in and then we had lots of products folks. I mean this is back in the day where we had audiotapes videotapes. And then of course we moved to online learning but for so many years or two factors offers. Andy One was that I didn't have a product that I thought could help the individual seller without them having their company. Bring me into do live. That was very grand scale so we were getting requests from as far as India and Africa and there was no way we could serve all those people so so having a twelve dollar product was huge for us and I did have an epiphany later in life I became an accidental parents. Six seven years ago I told you that story and I realize actually through parenting that the soft skills if you will empathy curiosity They're not something you do you know. I have been teaching sellers for years. Here's here's the three step method to. Here's the four things you need to learn in discovery and the epiphany I had I always wondered how come sellers in the same name environment. How come some of them will make three hundred thousand dollars and the other will make thirty outcome? Some of them are retiring and and others are struggling to pay either rent get. They're using the same system. They're using the same methodology if you will. There's selling the same product and I had this huge epiphany being apparent. That what you do to us quote Bernie Brown what you do matters but who you are matters more. Though these soft skills had been missing in my I training for years the the skills underneath the skills so the ten universal trues at the way it's separated as there's five truths on what you need. Did you do to be successful Rian sales and in life and I think that's what's critical to me in writing this book it was more of a life book and and if you follow the truth you'll not only have a better life. You'll sell a whole lot more by the way but so it's five what to do and then five who to be And so the combination of the two why. I think it's such a critical point to bring out because I for one thing I think in general when you look at sales Hiring that managers in general this my experience based on park with hundreds of companies and thousands of managers is is that very little emphasis on values and character and in terms of assessing and evaluating people. Formerly right. The myself with this person seems very nice polite person but I I don't see them asking questions that really serve plum whether that person actually has the values and character that enable them to be the best version of themselves together. Yeah there's no question I quote David Brooks and my book on which I've read. Yeah and I love his his distinction. He says there's two types of virtues in life right there's the resume virtues and that is our experience what we've done. What what we've accomplished How we've crushed quota so to speak? Those are your resume virtues. He suspect then. There's the eulogy virtues. What they'll he'll say about you once you're gone and Millie those eulogy virtues? Things like kindness integrity curiosity. You talk about that a lot. It's the Eulogy Eulogy Virtues. That really make the difference in today's environment. Where we're digitizing everything we we're going to? We need to do today. Everything Alexa can't do in order to survive in sales. Well yeah well I think the two point two may amplify point. You just made us. I think that that these they have always been important virtues but I think I think they're becoming more important right. I think as as we see more automation technology come home into the sales space. A I was interviewing someone right before you about a in sales is that yeah. We have a point where there's more serve guided selling rolling dumb automatically that experience for a buyer is is whether they're dealing with one person's automated sales system or another person's you know sales machine pretty undifferentiated and so At the end of the day people still want some expertise that want some insights. I want some validation. They want something from another human being which researches just alright shown this in the case of they've done pretty extensive research into medical decision making and and Algorithms today that could probably they the judge that over a period of time. Probably give better advice than talking to Dr Statistically in terms of outcomes but people still feel more comfortable having that a human intercession and judgment applied to things well and you know you wanna go to your doctor and half her say you nope machine in school house tyler. Doing swim team right right. These machines not going to do that for us. Well not fashion right. I mean you certainly see program. Couldn't we well. The machines learn to ask that right so I mean machine learning and is is that. Hey this important piece of data to ask Andy. We couldn't smell them. So you know about Oxytocin oxytocin. Listen release when you and I are together you and I met at a gardener conference. I trusted each other to be on your podcast. We must have been releasing this oxytocin the trust hormone and even by phone by Zoom Right. Now there's actually a smell you know this that enhances trust and it's that same hormone that women Release when they give birth to a child. It helps awesome duband. It helps them to have trust and it helps them to send money there. We go there we go right right so I don't have a sense of smell so it'd be interesting. Do I trust people more or less interesting. So you can't smell or it's not know. Almost nothing just happened by ten years ago. Okay yeah well those joys of joys choice of life so yeah just a sudden son thing anyway. I could come in handy at times though. Well I call my superpower living in New York it during the summer people spend any time in Manhattan during the summer. Sometimes you can come across smells that I remember as being you hear Comedians joke about it but yeah no impervious those now. So I said it's my big city superpower so let's dive five into some of your your universal truths i. I enjoyed the book and I recommend it to people listening to the show. You've got a sly sense of humor that I really appreciate socially like Nelson Mandela story with your your husband so shortstop for the Yankees. I'm sorry it was the mets exactly. So you talk about is the ten truths are about using proven sales skills without losing your authenticity so tours we see a lot and sales just proven and authenticity. So just wanted to serve dive into that Is Tie the reason afterwards with proven but so how do you say something's proven that is a great question you know because we all go to research shows ninety eight percent of the people and you know we all love statistics today right you see all the sales influencers use these statistics. And of course we all know you can make statistics. Say anything that you want to say well especially given in sales yeah. They're they're pretty loose. Anyway I mean so seventy eight percent of customers still say they trusted adviser which I actually do believe so what one hundred percent but anyway go ahead. Here's what I think. I think you take the statistics. First of all you need to look at where the proven in where the research comes from and if it doesn't pass the good sense just throw throw it out so the way I look at proven is okay. I'm going to look at the source and I'm going to say okay. This Harvard Business Review. Is this a neuroscientist. I just I know of but then I put it through the filter of the good common sense test and say is that my experience is that the experience of others and I think it's a combination of both and that's where you get the combination of the proven and the authenticity. Does this feel right to me and I think too. Many people believe whatever they see on social media whatever research and just doesn't pass that commonsense test. I agree that's a glad you give that answer because I I agree with that a hundred percent so I think that the That one problems in sales is we don't have a good research about sales. Basically I mean Gallup has been doing research and collecting data for a long time. Maybe maybe the most authoritative source but most of what we see that and we read that passes for science is really statistics as not really science and even the science that we have people don't studies we tend to Generalize and say okay. Well you know somebody does study saying if you do this This will influence people. Do something phone you look at the study. It's like well yeah worked. It was relatively small sample fifty five percent of the time. And that's it's okay. If it worked fifty five percent time I think for people to your point precisely as they have to look at things and say is this something that looks true for me right. I mean if if one person exactly if one person has done at if these things have worked for you Sherry. That's good for me. I'm F- I trust you to your point. Then yeah it doesn't mean the work the same way for me but at least I can say okay. There's some some validity to it and I sort of always cringe when I think here. Arrid people serve reverting to sort of. Yeah let's Cherry pick statistics from here and there substantiate something. I'm saying when they really don't have any value in that. So so I think a lesson just for people people listening as as to Cherry point is yeah what resonates with you as true and then yeah learn a little bit about the person but then try to and if you try it. I think it's important. I was thinking about this just yesterday. Try One thing at a time but we're working with a company where consulting with them and you know. They just brought us in. They had a big trigger. Event and when a CEO or a business owner of EPA sales tells you know when things aren't going right it's Hugh for you're not hitting quoted that doesn't mean you try for new things at once. No then you never know what thing made the business impact and got the results and I think people panicked. They press the panic button and they don't introduced one thing thing into their sales process or into their marketing. Whatever the case may be yeah I again? I've had that conversation so recently as as ring a paper. MIT's scientists put out late eighties early nineties. Simple of formula for change right and Change Management introduced one new factor. Try It test it to assure you've got it introduced. Second new factor seen marketing. One isn't it and what not necessarily know. But it's from a change management standpoint and you think about it if you're in sales and you're wondering okay things just aren't clicking which can can happen when your new can happen when you've been in business for a long time. I mean. Sometimes we lose the recipe. We lose our way is yeah trying new things all at once never recipe for success so to the the the converse to what we're saying about universal missile truth or things that are proven is are universally proven bad behaviors though and it seems like sometimes I feel like we've lost sight of some of that up and it seems like I don't the answer is but we seem to keep having to reteach these generation after generation after generation listen sellers and we don't seem to be getting any better at eradication them. I mean to win your points in the book. One of your truth is yeah talk. Talk Talk Talk Talk. Not Listen not ask questions can be told can be asked. Yeah I have similar thing. One Book Cycle Ask. Don't tell a similar concept is if you're in a presentation the way I presented as presentation learn from a boss early in my career is anything thing time you'll ask somebody or tell something you can frizette his question in a way that forces the customer to think well. It's it's much less combative and you get information particularly today. In the old days it was just consultative selling right we wanted defined problem. We wanted to find the implications of that problem today. We have to help people learn how to buy so we have to ask them questions so that they think okay. What is my criteria by? What is my decision making process? I think what Gartner just came out with now ten decision makers so it's gotten so much more complex today in in B. Two B. Sales. So yes those questions are key and really thinking them through an advance into knowing what you're trying to achieve so not just Willy Nilly asking a bunch of questions but saying what. Why am I asking these questions? What information on my trying to get and more importantly life? What do I want my customer to get so impactful? So here's sort of a digression a question for for you and in Sir triggered by what you're saying about Gartner and I've yeah you and I are part of this group of Gartner. We get insight to their research for their release. It and you know big believer in. So they're they're buying process though buyer enablement study with the Spaghetti Diagram of the buying process and Yup the very opposite of a linear sales process that every company has A couple of questions one is. There's a lot of companies that most companies have not altered their sales process in response to that that research right. So here's a company Don Don pretty much the most authoritative research on at least enterprise buying behaviors but I think that extrapolates into even smaller companies as well and yet you haven't come across one company that says Pa. How do we change our sales process to reflect? This reality of the people are actually buying you seen anybody that has you know I felt like I go into it regardless of the company. Beata the orbit AC- we do work in to see as well and and it's the same what I call default tendencies right and I think you have to ask yourself will. Why don't they change you know and is it any different than our buyers right? If the customers are unwilling to change genet we scratch our heads and say. Why can't we get our if the companies aren't willing to change their behavior? I always say what happens in the training process will be duplicated by your sellers in the sales process so I tend to see the the same challenges. The same default behaviors that people fall into and I have not seen it adopted at scale. Let's say maybe in little pockets but not at scale. Yeah and I think this is this this becomes sort of the real challenge. I think for business. In general right is is the buyers are moving so much more quickly than sellers. I mean yeah we've got the interruption of all this new technology into sales and our sales engagement platforms conversational. Yada Yada Yada. But it's like borger tried to forces sources down this quote unquote funnel the way voice. Conceptualized it when instead the buyers all that. The implication of our methodical article sales process is this is the way we think buyers buy where buyers actually enter that process to your point earlier. They don't know what the hell they're doing right. And even if they bought a product like yours five years ago. They don't know how to buy it today. I mean there's something once every five years it's it's Unlikely to be documented. You've got home. Cast of characters of come in involved with the process and they revert to the status quo. Because they don't WANNA lose their job they. I don't want to take a risk. Nobody wants to risk. But this is this is what I think. Ruined him but sales sales growth and productivity growth among individual sellers again. We're not we're not responding to the rally all the way things really are in the field in this same question. I was reading. Gosh I forget who it was yesterday. some sales author and talking about Gartner's Gartner statistics from other studies along when the Challenger sale came out as buyers challenger customer buyers are now two-thirds through their buying process for the engage with sale sellers. And then yet we've got this whole other substantial portion of the sales world sales thought leaders so and saying absolutely wrong. That's not what it is at all. And so he throw that mixes like okay. Well isn't really important. Fundamental Agreement on this I think Gartner at sort of answer that question with their their Byron ableman study yet. We still have people that that aren't adapting to it. It's really the issue of. How do we get people to change strike? Because I was reading your book and I thinking it's not that people aren't writing some really interesting things but sales. This is an Geraldo since. No one's reading it. Well that's true what is it. I'm sure that you'll what is it. Called the done in. Kruger dunning Kruger. Is that the one where if I bought the book. I think I've read it not well different. What's that what Donna Kruger's people overestimate? Make the extent of their knowledge. The extended their expertise and their knowledge. And don't have emotional intelligence to realize that and and change right but it surplus and that is that we have this issue and sales is that there's all these I'm great materials. Great great training so well. The people are doing are the people that are good already right that my conviction is the people who read sales books that people that are don't need them well thought they don't need but but they're they're learners. They're worse right right so like you and I are. They're lifelong learners any little tidbit. They can pick up to help them. So they're always a constant quest. How do how do we reach that that group that aren't learners? I interested in your because I I think it's a cultural issue within companies. That's the driver on interested in your. Take Okay okay so this is going to be a very different answer that you've heard before you make it fun truly. I think we are so serious with ourselves house. We take ourselves so seriously at what I find is when when we do an event we talk in one of our talks. We do a three day. Course it's called it's showtime and it's all about the four pillars of an effective training and coaching program and the premise and is is that you know. There's all this talk about coaching. I know you make a great distinction I heard on one of your podcasts. Between Education and training You can make a distinction however you want but what we call it in the four pillars as you gotTa have education which is lifelong learning made. That's the the the ongoing education I call it the growth equation bride needs to a growth mindset ed but the second pillar is key and we forget it and it's entertainment. Is it fun. Look we don't learn in less. Were in the NEO cortex part of our brain and we know this we have the brain research on it but we don't implement it so when I say it's gotTa be entertaining. I don't mean like La La Ah there's banjos and other could be gamification. Those are great but I mean is the sales enablement function is to training thing. Are you connected with your students with your participants as a trainer as a leader Are you quitting emotional connection. Is it creative creative. Are you coming at them from different angles through storytelling through gains through our. Because then when we're in this peak emotional state we learn so I number two is entertainment number. Three's facilitation people don't believe it when we say they believe it when they do it and then the final pillar and you need all four for exit successful. The Full Training and Coaching Program is that Coaching Miller is the ongoing coaching. Like you do it the sales house because as you know you can tell somebody how to do something all you want. But the devil's in the details nuance it's all of a sudden. Somebody says Oh. Yeah I did what you told me to do. And then you sort of role play it out on your show and your like Yep I didn't say to do that you know and and there's nuances that you wouldn't even think to train on or coach on. And then all of the sudden those come out in that ongoing coaching and development so the short answer though the long answer to your short questions think if we can make it more engaging and more fun particularly with a generation of millennials and Gen Z.. is they're going to be born. WE'RE GONNA go down to something else. So what about creating as part of of the incentive package for a salesperson some goal metric around. Call it related to learning. I talk about that all the time. I think it's it's it's necessary right that we not only reward quota and the result but we reward this idea of a growth mindset and we monitor this in my company we. I like to let people do what they WANNA do. But we've got a certain amount that everybody can spend for their own growth in education and it's sort of the old inspect what you expect and we tell this of our clients as well and what we say is pick something that you want to delve into every month and then we have them share what they learn. I mean it's gotTa be you have something to do with what we're doing but you brought it what people find in what they do and I have just found it by building this sort of culture culture of you know you've got so many so much money to spend. It can be a podcast. It can be a video it can be a course People doc the right people crave that and I say the right people and you have to hire for curiosity if you want a culture of learning and Development Development Zone. Expect people to do it unless that's who they are and what they're made of and I believe that's intrinsic either. Have sure you can build your curiosity but if you want to go home watch football and eat bon bons and you know every night and then you. You might not be the one who's going to you. Want to keep learning Heidi laughing all in bon-bons nobod cause US example. Go home and watch football. I say go home and watch the bachelor so so Don't get me wrong. I don't like the bachelor so but it's just an example. Right of some things are mindless to your point point. The people do mindless is good. Don't get me wrong but I am amused. I will tell you is. I'm on a lot lot of airplanes. Notice what people are doing in business class versus coach. I'm not trying to be a snack here but you will. I do find that that the greater the position and the greater the stature and the higher up somebody is competent in accompany the more you will find the learning working researching and the less. You'll find him playing video shows. We're actually research at not ninety percents of the people who make a seven figure income. Actually I think I think part of the reason that you see that back in business class or first class is that there's more privacy so they can actually do meaningful that okay. No I'm not refuting it. I just know their times times. I'm on a plane. I'm a plane a lot. It's it's like I should bought a privacy screen for Amoco's this person next to me. I don't know who that is right. Like I doc working on a book or something. That's doing a report for a client and don't feel like having the world see it. But that's that's my completely unproven theory. As to why people in business class are arts majors because they're drinking more and that's SIM relaxed rate a focus but we must get at the statistics on this. I'm sure somebody somewhere has. Yeah so it's Kinda further into it and I thought we'd be at this point it really looking at it that last piece. Oh no we. Don't edit anything no this is this is real world okay. Great Yeah I said well. It's time we'll have you come back But we are getting close but I just want to go through one of the ten truth since we haven't cut any of them yet As you said trust begins with empathy and so two trigger words their trust and empathy tell us what you mean by that. This is probably the most important thing I can tell a seller or a leader in this anad is this and I. I do this the workshops all the time I say there's two critical elements to selling. You've gotTa have your competency or you've gotTa know your product and you have to have your empathy or you need to know the customer and I- Pose a problem to the audience and I say if you could only have one amphitheater competency which which one's more important knowing your customer or knowing your product it's usually about split Well here's the result in its from Harvard Business Review so I believe it in there there must be it must be true. I connect than lead but this I know to be true. This follows the the good sense tests. And what they say is is empathy and competency Are the two most important components to influence and what is sales sales if not influence sorry real world it's live. That's right so empathy and competency create ninety percent of influence however the order matters and most sales reps get this wrong so I would say if you take nothing else else out of what I say in that book or said today yet this empathy gets you in the door competency reliability and integrity equity. Keep you there. Those are the four components of trust but most sales people do it backwards. And you've had it happened a million times. You connect with somebody on Lincoln and immediately. They're telling you about their state of the art custom solution. That's GonNa make you zillions of dollars. But they haven't shown you they know they don't haven't looked you up there just spamming. So that's the classic classic example of this sort of leading with competency or in a in a sales presentation in a demo in a conversation it's the seller that starts out with the slide deck. Here's who we are. Here's how great we are when the customers like. Yeah but whether you knew about me and so that's why I talk about. Trust begins pins with empathy with caring about the customer caring about their world learning about their world. And if you look at any big deal you've ever gotten her any new deal align guests is you really learn about the customer. You focused on the customer. And you're better off reciting to them. What their problems are are in meeting one in meeting to and in meeting three and waiting for them to say so? What's your solution? Always say if we can exactly pinpoint point what their problems and concerns are in the outcomes they desire are of all the stakeholders if we can diagnose the problem given the right to solve it begins with empathy. They were knowing your customer. Yeah I mean because in one hand you're talking about understanding I mean. This is a point that I serve drill down on empathy and understanding are a little different though right well if you look at the traditional additional Meaning of empathy. If you were to look it up in the dictionary of the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes so that's sort of the baseline find right. I am willing to see this from my customers perspective instead of our WanNa tell them how great I am because we default into competency because we're insecure usually. It's I that goes to the party and starts posting instead of finding out about the other person. Yeah I'm sort of talking about different points. I think one thing we do with with say like personas where we got our marketing in team or sales enablement teams develop personas for people are supposed to sell to and somebody reads and says oh I understand right I mean I I get how. They're they're feeling about that from like you've read. Paul boom spoke on the death of empathy but differentiates between emotional empathy and cognitive of empathy and Moshe empathy is sort of the traditional. I can feel what you're feeling whereas sort of how as well so I think it's really more important for sellers to say. I understand why you feel the way you do. This is really what you were discussing us. I understand now why through the questions asked why you feel the way you do. Because then that gives Milwaukee formation to take take action about. Yeah Yeah I see what you're saying so if I hear you right you're saying that The really the cognitive emotional empathy emotional empathy. You actually feel inside inside yourself you change. It's the monkey neurons. Now you're you're you're you're feeling what they feel what you've right right whereas the cognisant is I understand why feel that way and thus I'm in a better position to say here's a solution that will work for you and I truly believe if you can have both the cognitive that's gold. Yeah no I agree. I think I think you need to have. You can't have one without the other. I think If you're going to be effective in in understanding and really saying okay okay. What is the best path forward for the customer at this point in time and requires a little bit of being dispassionate as well as feeling empathy but too often I think in in sales? We see the empathy Sir slips into sympathy and sellers. Don't want your sympathy. They they want your understanding. Let me do this empathy. Step really quick so I can get to my discovery. Yeah so sorry this is hard for you. Know it's like I wonder why this is hard for you absolutely cool all right Sherri. Unfortunately we're running out of time. We're definitely going back because we have to touch the surface.

Wayne Gretzky Interview

"From Utah and partnership with tsn. Happy New Year everyone and welcome to our first episode. Two Thousand Twenty. It is episode fourteen of the Ray and rigs hockey podcast. Darren Gregor along with Rape Ferraro. Rare you well rested I I mean. I'm I'm watching on twitter this week. You're back from the Czech Republic. You're back in the NHL Grind. But YOU'RE GETTING UP TO FORTY FIVE. Am Pacific. I mean clearly clearly. You're traveling your body clock aren't meshing right now. No happy New Year Drake's to you and to all our listeners. Hope everybody's got the nice start out to the new year. I am not even close to being on time. So yesterday. Today is. I believe Thursday. So yeah it was. Wednesday is up to forty five. What do you do it to forty five in the morning? I'm better be sleeping on the day. I do a lot of things at two forty five. Imagine but you weren't you haven't gone to bed yet. No no so. I did a couple of loads of laundry my expenses and book my travel for into the end of March so I was very productive at six o'clock. My head hit my desk like a stone and slipped till eight when the kids got up. And we're ready for school so I'm limping along but no I'm I'm getting there. I'm getting well look. We had Cami on the podcast not that long ago and she described meticulous and sensitive. You are to the cleanliness of your environment and I've witnessed this firsthand traveling with you and obviously sees on a day to day basis in your home but let's back up here a little bit. I share in your appreciation and O'Kane of doing laundry because to me. Laundry is like a fake chore. It seems like you're accomplishing a lot. With very little effort you throw the clothes in there now. You don't even have to worry so much about whites and darks and all that just because all of that and then you let them dry but I I where grow weary of doing laundry is the folding part of things and and you know if one sock doesn't match on pissed off like who would do that. Put both socks in the hamper. And let's get let's get going with okay so I don't mind the folding I I like it to me. It's like it is fake work. It's not like it's hard No. I'm not washing the clothes like my grandmother used to do like. I just pitched him in a machine and I throw them into the other one. The the socks thing he drags you are. You're a few steps in front of me. Okay I've got a thirteen and a ten year old. The chances that those socks all get into the dirty clothes is about zero percent. My favorite is when they clump them up in a ball and throw them in so they all I either. So that's my that bugs me and could anybody throw a shirt in? That's not inside out now that that's not happening so anyways. I like the. I like knocking off all the laundry. I like it clean but I just I go into back. I turn the music on like we're the laundry is and music and folk laundry. Not that's there you go so so looking at value in episode fourteen. We're we're now presenting laundry tips on the podcast. Do not separate anything. It's a waste of time and goes in together. Do not dry your wife's jeans and then she's really sour at you. Because what are you doing all? That's bad news. I get strict instructions when it comes to my wife or my daughter's clothing. Don't dry this or better yet. If you're drying for an hour stopping at thirty and make sure that you hanging so that. I'm going to do that all right. I'm telling you when I push starting the next time I go back. There is what I hear the thing. Go off all right. Talk about kicking off two thousand twenty with a mega guest. Wayne Gretzky the great one is going to join. Us later in episode fourteen. I this guy need as me for a lottery isn't a hockey aside. But he pops up and curious places and he does a ton of travel and it's not all hockey related travel specific to the oilers obviously is son-in-law Dustin Johnson kind of a big deal on the PGA tour. So you'll participate in that. But he's kind enough. Ray Takes fifteen twenty minutes to join us later in the PODCAST NOT GONNA lie. Get Nine on. The podcast is twelve better efforts. I would say I would say I would say so. It is it is amazing to me. How certain athletes and certain sports transcend time because there? There's a period of time when an athlete retires. Now they're still really relevant because everybody remembers them but now you're you get a generation or two away from their playing days. Gretz retired in right around two thousand right. Nineteen Ninety nine nine now. So it's twenty years so anybody. That is twenty five years or twenty eight years old or younger. They have no real recollection other than highlights our old gout. That's on of the brilliance. That Gretz had we talked yet. They know him and then we could talk about this later. But I I. I know you on on twitter earlier. We're of course all in all of the congregated goal in Toronto on on Monday. And we'll talk about that later in the show as well coming up as part of our top five items as a matter of fact but then someone tweeted something about video of Mariel Bugle and it must've been obviously back in the nineties eighties whenever it was but he was getting hooked and hacked and everything from his defensive line pretty much through threes homes and he's still scores a goal of. What would amuse me about? That was all of the backlash that we see. And we hear about almost on a game by game basis for those who are connor mcdavid fans and I think we all are obviously about how he's you know obstructed on a shift by shift basis that it's not even close. Who's watched that video if you haven't seen it Ivory tweeted it. You could find it my twitter account. Just watch it and please note at no time. Did an officials hand to go in the air so I tweeted out. There were six hooks on this play and Andre Kole. Petar answered decide. You missed to hold as well. It was it was A. It's an amazing piece of video. Know what I do remember dregs about that about that time when Mario complained about all the hooking and holding he actually was criticized. Pretty roundly furthering complainer. Now you look at it and you go well. No wonder at the time. We didn't even notice. That was just the way the game was but he was like. This is ridiculous and he was more than right. And it's proven to be right because the game has changed so much that the video is fantastic by two referees. Imagine the number of goals. Mario would've scored Wayne. Gretzky finished his career with eight hundred. Ninety four I mean if the game were called the same way you would have scored six hundred goals. Gretzky widow scored over a thousand. I mean and Mary Likewise Mary would have been literally unstoppable on the six foot or yeah with that ability. Just think of him. Eric Lindros in today's game. How were you gonNA stop them? Cau- Mario's at a different level but Lindros injuries aside. Who is going to stop him? You wouldn't you just. You just couldn't know all right. We've got plenty coming up on the podcasts or throat punch candidates or warmed up teed up ready to fly. We'll take you into the segment ask Ray and dregs. And we'll also announce her first half winner of the rate and Greg's hockey fantasy pool. Now you're just back from the Czech Republic. Tell me if I'm wrong here. The gold medal game between Canada and Russia has to be has to be up there among a highlight game. That you've called to this point of your broadcast career. I would say in the top few that I've done to them. Gold Medal Games. One of them was the other day when Canada down three one in the third period came back to to win against Russia. The other would have been twenty fifteen Canada Russia gold medal game. Was this six five wild crazy thing in Toronto unbelievable and what I what really connected me to that game dregs was. I was between the benches for this last one. I was up top like you could see these kids just like emotional swings in the game. It was just amazing. This tournament gets better and better More and more people watched we had over four million people watch on tsn and rds. And that's a game from Europe. That was eleven o'clock in the morning back here in Canada On against some pretty heavy traffic on. Nfl playoff weekend and things. But the game just seems to draw more and more people in I can't remember a better final in Europe that that we've gotten to call. It was amazing. I want your thought on travel experience coming back because that that always amuses me and our podcast listeners. But I'm feeling a little testy but feisty today so maybe we'll we'll leave the European experience with this. I I give him noise when media or fans start the tournament. And you can you. It's like clockwork every year. Where they're like Oh. Dsm puts too much pressure on these young boys. You know this is all about TV. This is all about ratings. I mean these kids would give anything to make this team and to have the opportunity to win a gold medal for their country. Of course there's pressure but isn't there pressure on an eighteen. Nineteen twenty year old Blair in playing in in the Memorial Cup or in the playoffs or any big game in college junior etcetera. I mean do you get is annoyed by The the negativity that comes prior to this. Turn on the so-called pressure resided. Of course I do. I mean now that I. I've done the tournament nine times. I'm certainly more sensitive to it. More sensitive to the criticism that as you say is like clockwork when the tournament starts funny. Part is most of the people that are bitching about the tournament. They're watching it so if it so offensive to them. Don't watch now. The tournament is fantastic. It these kids play their hearts out. They get a chance to to wear their country's flag on their chest and for many of them a good many of them. These are the biggest most important games that they will ever in their lives. I remember a goalie. Dennis God la the first place for Slovakia at the time he's now playing professionally in Europe but at the tournament in Toronto at Twenty fifteen and Slovaks made it to the semi finals. They were chanting his name in the building. Eighteen thousand people chanting his name. Where is he ever going to get a greater moment than that? Was there pressure to it. Yup You bet there was and that's just the way it is the tournament itself Yes. Tsn has helped make it what it is. They've broadcast for thirty years but if this tournament was going on in the middle of the woods while would anybody care what anybody watch? Would there be anything to it. No of course not. This was an opportunity to connect to something that most of us feel when we watch our kids play our kids watch it on TV. Our Kids WanNa be these younger kids that we see Keel Akil Thomas with the winning goal or Barrett hate and plank through a shoulder injury or you know the brilliance of Alexi last frontier. They WANNA be these kids. What's I don't even can't even build a case for what would be wrong with that. No absolutely nothing all right well. We'll we'll exit the Czech Republic With this cute you had some issues getting to the Czech Republic. Well I know I mean you you eventually got. There has to fly along the way. I mean that stuff happens. Coming home was it. Flawless was again like clockwork smooth. Is June on broken glass? It was it was just fantastic. I I'm not sure if it's because I missed the flight on the way over. But somehow all my seating got thrown into the blender so we get to the gate to the check in counter and in Frankfurt Germany. And so I go check in get by Seating Passes Forty D. and twenty eight e. Neither of those are seats. That I'm particularly interested in also in there are no pods in the fortieth row. They're they're smaller pods. You Sit Upright frozen road and so I do fly one hundred and fifty thousand miles a year and I am kind of like a million and a half miles you also you kind of get moved to a more comfortable seat. There were no more comfortable seats. I'm not sure what happened so I'm at the gate. I'm checking in and the there's a connection that Mrs somewhere else so a seat in thirteen thirteen opens up man. I'm all over that like you can't believe so the the woman at the gate. She's really helpful and she says okay. This is your seat. There's still a chance you could get upgraded to business so now I'm like man. I perked up like this is going to be great. Yeah so I'm just waiting around the gate inch. I hear her say into her cellphone. Vonda bar and I'm like and then she hangs up and she turns to me and I'm like this is unbelievable like I just came from Forty D. and I'm going to end up in a pod and she goes good news and I said Oh. I just want like that not for you. The other passenger made so far not doing the bar for me so I ended up enrolled thirteen which was a hell of a lot better than forty. That's awesome and then if Gore had been on his game now if I were there there would be pictorial. Evidence of this would on another to light to Gordon other flight. Which was so. Gordon went Toronto going West but I will say this I will give Gord props. He put together this trip that that we went to Berlin to watch landon play. Yeah he put together a couple of other things that I would have never figured out. The trip turned out to be fantastic. We were we had a great time and come back and I'm jumping back in. My first game is Sunday afternoon in Winnipeg and the jets. The jets had an unbelievable Yup game last night against Toronto looking forward to getting back into it all full. Nhl SWING AND WE'RE GONNA kick over into the top five topics that we wanted to discuss this week but before we do that. We've gotTA pay some bills.

What about the Tampa Bay? Lightning holy smokes. I mean before you left. I think in fairness many of us in the media were wondering with all the coaching changes and whatnot. You know with John Cooper survive and if the Tampa Bay. Lightning didn't respond in some fashion in the second half. What would you embrace bond do now? At the at the time of this recording here on Thursday the Tampa Bay lightning of one eight straight and their second in their division points percentage. I mean that's a fairly remarkable turnaround in relatively short period of time. It's amazing what eight games does for you and I think we're all kind of sitting around waiting for Tampa Bay to catch fire. They they got kicked in pants pretty hard last year when Columbus just shove them out of the playoffs not just that they beat them but they beat them in four games. Tampa looked The looked rattled when they when they got knocked out. And so I think the view was all will see how they respond. But they're not going to be able to really be evaluated until you get into into the playoffs and then pretty soon. October rolls around. They went into New York around the end of October. And they just got spanked. They got crushed and it looked bad so now they've got all these issues. Why checked in a little bit in Tampa and talk to a couple of people there and they felt that early on that. They didn't outside of that week in New York where they were terrible that they'd played. Okay didn't get any points in overtime. Because they never got any games to overtime they they lost didn't regulation so now they're a little bit behind the eight ball. They hadn't played as many games as everybody else sold their. You know your points are GonNa lag a little bit in the in their division. I was given this stat so this this kind of made me look at things a little differently in the Atlantic Division. They've been in the top. Three in points percentage for ninety of the first hundred days of the season. So while we're looking at the points it's really the percentage that matters because everybody's GonNa get to eighty two games anyway of actually right. So they were. They felt like they had played better and not were and weren't rewarded. I don't know if that's the case. All the time like there was another gear there in Tampa for sure but the things that they're working on drake's or trying to be they're trying to be harder in front of their net and in front of the other net. They're trying to take less penalties. Be More more disciplined. They've been practiced. They practice focused that they. They think they're making progress while this stretch would tell us it. They're probably a pretty good groove right now and no matter what happened in the first couple of months there. We are with Boston. Toronto in Tampa sitting at the top of the division again and in whatever order Boston's played themselves back to the pack the lease and the lightning. Or go on the other way. And they're gonNA Mishmash around for those top three spots in the Atlantic well while the Tampa Bay lightning round a good groove the Nashville predators in a nasty rut which ultimately cost Peter Laviola job. Peter Laviola out as head coach of the Nashville predators. John Heinz in tough start for John. Heinz I claim on on the bench. But you know it. Was this somewhat predictable. I guess the only reason I was surprised a little bit by it was the timing. The fact that David Paula general manager probably a week prior to said he wasn't contemplating coaching change but in fairness deployable he. Also then you know as part of the Media availability when the change was announced in hiring of John. Heinz was now said. Look you know the tipping point for me was the classic and how the the Nashville Predators essentially folded in in the outcome of that game man. Coaching is tough is I mean. It's tough but when you look the record of Peter Laviola divisional wins with national presidents trophy a trip to the Stanley Cup. Final do do you just Kinda Slough this one off by saying look every. Nhl Head coach has an expiry date and a shelf life and it was time for change. Why I don't I don't recall ever hearing anybody saying Peter. Laviola doesn't know how to coach your that or that is teams. Don't play style at the players like to play and I do believe eventually that you've got to change the record a little bit and by that. I mean that a coach is going to get let go. I don't sometimes it's not fair. I would say in Nashville. Peter had been there five years but the expectations are very high in Nashville. They've been so good for so long that the team seemed to have lost the reg there. They lost their their ability to play well enough for a long enough period of time to win enough games and so a couple of things. That always are red flags for me. I whenever a coach gets fired I look at I look at three things. immediately Look at the power play. I look at their penalty killing and they look at their goaltending And say what are those because the goaltending will always sink a coach anyway for some but the the special teams if they've got good personnel. Which Nashville does if they're not right. That's kind of a red flag for me. So they're powerplays twenty-third their penalty killing twenty nine. Not You know obviously very not nearly good enough. We know the goaltending has been awful. Aca Rene is sixty second in the NHL. Eight ninety four save percentage which would be fine except this backup is to behind him. Uc Sorrows is sixty fourth. And he's got an eight nine thousand two. You have goaltending like that. Your coach all of a sudden becomes pretty stupid. Be Good goaltending. The coaches really smart. So if you look at their team the goaltending has been good. The special teams haven't been good. They've had a good many players that have under achieved by a long shot kyle tourists. They're paying him. Six million bucks got five goals in thirty five games. He might benefit because pretty clearly him in. Lavi let were not even on the same page. They weren't even in the same book. Michael Greenland is a free agent. At the end of the year. He's got fifteen points is is lowest point total in thirty six games in right his career. Arvidsson got nine goals in thirty games. He's a hell of a player. But that's not nearly enough for him and Ryan Johansen who he traded Seth Jones for. Yeah right like they traded. Seth Jones one of the League's best defense and he's got twenty six points in forty two games so you mix all of that in the only guy that's really had a good year is Roman Yosi Llosa's on eleven game history l. Yet nineteen points. He leads. Filip Forsberg by fifteen points. So you gotTa defensemen leading your team in scoring by fifteen points. You clearly have some issues and the change was probably becoming predictable and then when the players start to smell it then you really have to make a move. You like they were traveling. When the heroics of this effort came into play in Toronto Connor mcdavid goal versus the Toronto. Maple leaves on Monday. I know you've seen it obviously multiple times. I mean when you see once you've got to watch it a dozen times just to to make sense of what connor mcdavid did Morgan Riley and the impact. He finishes in in scoring an unbelievable unbelievable goal. You know we use goal of the year as as Cliche but I mean this one has to be an early. Favourite candidate is hitting the hot for two thousand twenty. I assume something might be able to challenge it but the sheer brilliance of what he did at the speed he did against the defenseman. That is a hell of a player and Morgan Riley. Now you put it all together and I mean it was. It was a thing of beauty it really was and I did watch it. I was on the plane I saw you know on on twitter and then I watched it again and then I watched it at home and like one of the things I was most terrified of in the NHL was getting a pass. And then having a one on one against the defenseman. Because I knew I could never beat him. No matter who was back there was no chance that I was going to be able to get around this guy. And then you got the whole rink looking at you like this kind of embarrassing. Because I can't get by the guy that guys were good and I can't get by him. That's not my game and he took it and just undressed riley like it was spectacular. I mean the edge work this. Yeah the deception. It was all there is. It was a thing of beauty. His level of confidence mirrors his athleticism and creativity. I think that's why I expect the unexpected now and as as glorious as that goal was and it probably will be the the goal of the year. I'm waiting for the next one because I know there's going to be a next one from Connor mcdavid. I. I can't debate it. I just I'm trying to figure out how could look if a better his ability to go super fast in one direction and then changed. Directions without losing speed is astounding. I would say is I think about the changes in the game with the players. That ability across the board is has grown more and more to the player's ability to change direction on their edges without losing speed. We couldn't do that. We could change directions but it took a lot lot more time than this. I mean that that stuff is broken. Thinking of the guys I think a Jack Eichel how he changes directions right like these. You can go across that nate McKinnon like then of course Mick Davids the. It's the prime. He's he's number one at at all. Well Wayne Gretzky perfect seat in Toronto. Watching that game no question. He was out of his seat in celebration in the Mcdavid goal he`ll. He'll join us on the rain rigs hockey podcast. Coming up shortly. speaking of greatness. And you know it's it's a category that we have to put mcdavid in now. Obviously Wayne Gretzky for many top of the list. Alexander Ovechkin Ray. Six hundred eighty four goals scored two against the Ottawa. Senators in our wrote of the sense Earlier in the week. I mean it's conceivable now tied for eleventh. All Time in goals was six hundred. Eighty four with James Salani. It is conceivable is it. Not that he could. He could catch Gretzky's eight hundred ninety four. Now there's a two hundred ten goal gap as we're recording the podcast here. Who which isn't chump change by any means. But are you a believer that it could be done? He's thirty four or do you just get. It's it's an impossibility at this stage. I don't think it's an impossibility in the reason I don't is because obese game in my opinion will age pretty well because he'll still be able to get to the front of the net not as often but he's still going to wait two hundred and thirty pounds. He's still going to be a horse. He's going to get in there. You can stand there like a statue in the left circle and score ten to twelve goals. A year can score thirty year. Thirty five goals a year. We have another fifty goal year. Pass this one in. Because he's GonNa need a year or two. That are big ears. Yeah so what does he have now? Does he have twenty nine. Twenty eight something like that. Yeah we don't want to say twenty six. That sounds right. I think he was twenty four going into that Ottawa game. So is going to be near fifty again you know. Can he do it again? One more time that that's going to be critical to whether he can score of these two hundred ten goals you know. He's going to have to have one big year. He's going to have to average near thirty five goals a year. It's possible I hope he gets close and I think Wayne would hope gets close to because the excitement for the game would be astounding like the records that could be challenged. Just think the most all time goals that that would be amazing. Now Wayne is both most humble person. You can come across but I would never cheer for anybody to break my record away. Plus Stamkos has as four hundred nine plus. Now he's all right right and I saw. Her name was was was an achievement. No question yeah. I saw this thing like He was You know it was quite a milestone for him you know. He was really excited about passing it. I was hoping it was going to go into a six year slump. Be Honest with you. I'm sure you were by the way one thing about lovie because I think he's GonNa get close. I'd like you'll be in the ballpark anyway. Put it that way whether he gets there or not. I guess is is. It's you know we'll we'll we'll find out but it's astounding. He did this. You know the the number of goals he's got to tie Salani. That's three hundred less games. I know and also think about three hundred less games. Amazing what he's done well and that's six hundred and eighty four goals in eleven hundred twenty nine games and again just as a as a point of Reference Wayne Gretzky scored eight hundred ninety four goals in fourteen hundred and eighty seven. Nhl Game Salt provided over. You can stay healthy. Obviously you know we're saying he's got a chance Let's kick over the Montreal Canadians. Wrap up top five rape. They lost to the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday. Seven-game winless earlier. This season are seven-game winless. Now as we're recording earlier this season they went through an eight game winless stretch. They've now lost to the Detroit Red Wings three times this year. They could miss the playoffs for the fourth time in five years can can you make sense of this because the market in Montreal is getting warm right now and starting to point fingers and call out names? Well I can make some sense of it on a couple of things that that really are tied together. Montreal doesn't have offense that's GONNA come from explosive players guys that can change the game. Standalone player you know. Their offense has to be across the board right. It has to be depth. It has to be one through four lines. They have to play really near the top of their capabilities to be a successful team while Joel. Armenia has had a fantastic area thirteen goals last year. Got Eleven now. And then he's out along with Brendan Gallagher you know. They're they're top score along with Paul Byron along with Jonathan Drouin. Who had been playing terrific hockey? So you ask any team or look at any team. They take four of their top nine. Four words out of the lineup. They got problems. If you don't have guys that can carry your team while then you got even bigger problems. That's kind of where Montreal is offensively more Berge and the GM said look. We want to stay in the race until the end of the month and we get healthy. I don't even know if they're in the race. Still no you know and so we can look at the immediate and then if you go back and take a look at their draft choices in the first round only from two thousand nine to two thousand fourteen with the trade of Michael McCarron Nashville. Six straight first round picks and they don't have anything for it not so good and those those guys are between twenty eight or twenty nine and twenty two at this point like. That's that's safe. Four of those six picks work you know and there's Nikita sure back and Louis Leblanc back in the day and Michael mccaren you know or those are three of them and they just Jared tenacity is another. They just haven't worked for them and they're paying the price for that So would you be among the chorus of preaching patients or do you think? Berge has to step up even as difficult as it is to make meaningful trades in season. It can be done. Otherwise have done it. He's done it. Would you be patient and allow the Montreal Canadians to meander forward? Missed the playoffs again. And do their work in the off season. Or would you be one would be preaching for Change at the state why? I don't think they can make anything happen right now. That will change the season. The only way I'd make a significant move now as if it if it has benefit going forward the problem Montreal has talked about the first round. Picks they've got some really good young talent and then they carry price Shea Weber in the middle part of that is really where the issue start to sit so. I don't know if you've ever tried to do two things at the same time. It never works no right. You're looking for your keys in your conversation. Now you forget what you're talking about is you're looking for your keys or you go to pick up your keys. And you forget the conversation when you straddle the fence you can catch yourself right in the middle do exactly. And that's where they are. They've got these. You know these stud older players in price who by the way has been not even average this year. His statistics are not even average and Shea Weber had a fantastic year. You've got them at one end of the roster then you've got a bunch of young guys that just doesn't work. They're trying to get younger and better. And then they've got these there twenty million dollars tied up in two players. I don't know how you make a meaningful trade now to fix that but getting into the draft. They've got to use some of their cap space. They could take players on that. Other teams are looking to create cap space with. Yeah you might be able to get high price player from somewhere else because they can afford it rather teams can't do that good stuff rape. We've got Wayne Gretzky. The great one coming up on the Rangers Hockey podcast. And of course a little bit later a weekly staple throat punch ask gray and grades all around the Gore all right joining an episode fourteen of the raindrops hockey podcast. None other than Wayne Gretzky. We've been teeing this up for the last couple of days Gretz. Thanks doing this. Appreciate you taking the time. Yeah no problem pleasure. Fear we've got FERRARO standing by. Of course we'll let him jump in momentarily but let's let's go back to Monday's game and I mean I've talked a lot about this. Thought you were paid close attention to the spectacle that was the connor mcdavid goal in Toronto. You were there. Is it true you literally got out of your seat? Mcdavid scored that highlight goal. Yeah pretty much You know I've I've been lucky enough. I've got to play a lot over the last few years obviously being connected so. I've seen it time and time again. It never gets old and there's something. I don't care what anybody says. There's something really special about doing something like so unique in places like Toronto or Montreal or Madison Square Garden. There's just something very very unique about it and obviously the awareness when something like that does happen is pretty incredible and if you look at The replay and I. I've watched closely many times when he got the puck between the red line. In the Blue Line as you can see them looking into the middle of the ice. I think he knew before. I even got to the Blue Line. Defensive into the minimum was gonNA utilize his speed and go outside. So if you look at it closely. It wasn't a spur of the moment decision. I think he had the play in his in his mind. Before you even got over the Blue Line and that's pretty special man. It was. It was unique because listen we have most goalies in the NHL catch With their left hand That goaltender happen to be Right catching with his right hand and he came in on that side. Consequently that side opens up a little bit more for goaltender instinctively. So right hand side comes in on his win against a left handed glove goaltender. That side is normally decided to go. So it's very very rare that I left hand in shock gets that opportunity to SORTA fake and go back against the green and obviously capitalized on Fruit secular moment. You're talking about you know he's he's doing all of this in about a second right like it's not like he's got all kinds of time to think about it and similarly Do things that other people just couldn't do. They didn't see it. They didn't understand it. And you know you'd make your your turn up at the Blue Line and you'd pass to nobody except your came. Yari Curry and we always were amazed by that. What what the players like yourself. And now we're seeing with connor. What do you process like? How do you see it because the rest of us? The ice left really crowded. Let me tell you got really crowded at the end of my career. I really I asked Connor that a day. I I was curious because listen this hockey sense in his hand and all. That are pretty remarkable. There's duties crosby and Matthews and Marna tapes. I mean these guys are pretty special but one of the things I wanted to do was like he has another gear and probably listen. I I saw Paul Coffee. And he was remarkable his speed and his acceleration but probably the combustible to connor that of Bobby Orange his day that he could sorta take that one stride and all of a sudden two strays later. He was in full gear and I was asking corner that question like did you have this when you were five to seven did you or did you find it when you're fourteen like how to. How do you have that extra step that listen play? Frankly nobody else has in the game today Similar to maybe the speed and power of that of the veteran shot. There's only one vegetable. Well there's only one corner what he does and I think that as I said he didn't just at the spur of the moment. Decide all right. I'm to take this guy inside and utilized my speed and go around him. He his mind was to plays or two steps ahead of everyone else before he even made that play so I think that players who grew up thinking that way and utilize that from a young age they just sort of groom themselves throughout their life and consequently that. That was a lot that I did so when I was five I play with ten year olds and when I was fourteen I was planning. It's nineteen and twenty year olds and of course seventeen against men so I could never utilize strength or power. I had to to use my hockey knowledge my hockey sense and so from a young age. I never really changed my style. The only thing changed that fourteen June be against nineteen years nineteen year old. Junior big coats said listen. Watch Bobby Clark play. Plays out of the quarter and little bit behind the net. That's what you should try to emulate and so studied Bobby Clarke And consequently problem is one of the earlier guys and one of the first guys legalize the net as a weapon utilized going behind the net as tactic and I started at a fourteen so by the time I was playing pro. I'd already done it for four twenty five years and it was a new for me. I've never heard that analogy to to Bobby Clarkin and how you would have picked that up. That's really cool because if you remember the days of the Boston Bruins and fill US busy. The Big Centerman John Belleville big sentiment and the big Centerman sort of stand in the middle of the box and those states that defenseman was allowed to sort of knock guys over crosscheck guys That was part of our game. Well I I couldn't have done that. I was small and Bobby Clark was in the big guy and he was the first guy with Rick Lesion Reggie Leach and he he was more from the net to the corner making his passes to Reggie Leach mcleese and every now and then he would go behind the net. But that's when I really started to follow Bobby Clark. I didn't have the speed. The job F- parole is probably the best in the game at the time and My my coach said You watch Bobby Clark. Play every night you can. And that's what I did. I studied onto tea and I was able to You know sort of masking my craft of the many things you've left in your legacy of of the game one was when you got traded to Los Angeles and the consequent spread of hockey through the United States. I mean that Spurs and Austin Matthew Spurs The Dallas Stars and the growth hockey through California. Have you ever sit back and reflect and go about your impact that you left behind by going to Los Angeles? Well listen first of all it so it seems like yesterday. I got traded I actually Just don't know where the time flies. I I drove by Kotel in front neck Missouri and I was telling my kids I spent my twenty first birthday. They in that hotel with your grandmother. Great Grandmother After Game Saint Louis so time flies so fast But you know When I got traded air everybody sort of thought and put together okay. It's a family decision. We're going to to Los Angeles in and that's probably true but the reality was I was given choices of the New York Philadelphia. Detroit OR LA IN. My heart was set ongoing Detroit. I grew up according to how fan I felt like you know he was. The greatest player ever played a game tonight. Become friends and not only was my idol. My friend and it was my dad's stepped in and said listen There's only one Gordie how Why do you be unique and do something different and go to California so ended up in California and I always tell people? There's two things one? I was with the right group of guys who understood that we're more than just hockey players guys like Lucrative multi Marty mcsorley Kelly Rudy. Jim Fox these guys were spend countless hours in youth clinics and talking hockey and going to school and so the high school hockey program went from I believe in a d there was four high school teams over one hundred thirty high school teams by nineteen ninety five so everybody had a hand in it. And then my timing couldn't have been better sense that Mark Messier went to New York Rangers and work was an icon himself and very visible very crews maddock. Steve is Herman leaving the Detroit. Red Wings and what he did on the ice and off the ice and of course the two big ones. Were Mario saving the franchise in Pittsburgh and doing what he did? For hockey there and then of course bread hall single handedly saving the Saint Louis. Blues there'd be no Saint Louis. Blues today have cliff. Fletcher Not Traded Bread Hall to the Saint Louis Blues. So my timing couldn't have been better. All those pieces fit together and then during that period of time there was a gentleman. Come to every game that fell in love with hockey in. His son was a hockey player and he happened to be running Disney Michael Eisner and one day he sort of said at dinner. I WANNA do. I'm doing the hockey movie calling mighty ducks and it was more successful than anybody could have imagined and then he said you know what? I'M GONNA have a hockey team called the mighty ducks and I remember thinking well. That's probably warned the craziest things I've ever heard who needs an NHL team. The mighty ducks are then. I'm sitting here thinking well. This guy's probably one of the greatest marketing gurus in the history of of of life. Not just arts and so when that happened. Georgian Gordon Gun moved the team to San Jose and then everything just sorta snowball and like I say to people all the time. Listen I was proud of what I helped create and help to California and in the United States but everybody had a small piece in the small hand and making hockey more popular. We always listen. It's a great game. We have a bad image where it's an art to be able to be a good. Nhl Player you gotta you gotTa Pass. It's a man's game. You gotta take a hit you gotta give it a hit and I think what we showed people was. There was an artistry to the sport of Hockey consequently a lot of these great athletes in the United States who grew up especially climate cities. And I WANNA play baseball or football. Tennis gravitated to a sport that they truly loved and they they enjoyed and the sport itself is the greatest game in the world and once kids get introduced to it. It's pretty easy to sell them on it because it's such a fun game and so I was one word of mouth pieces of sort of puzzle and obviously I'm very proud of it. You mentioned somewhere in there Wayne About Your Dad. Counseling it to be you know to go to La two to be your you know to make your own. Mark this past holiday season I thought it was a spectacular beautiful commercial with the autograph in Dim. Horton's I I just loved it. I thought it was amazing. How did that all come about well? First of all thanks in the listen. I I was a stick boy. My Dad was plane. Intermediate B hockey or at team in a little town called air. Which is just outside of Paris and Terry and the age of four years old. I was a stick boy and at the end of that year we got team Jackson. I'm so proud of my jacket The moral the story is from that point on. My Dad collected everything that I ever sort of accumulated my first Jerseys Dick's pox trophies Team jackets and he would just keep it. There is no no reason to wasn't have about money or didn't think or know why would ever make the NHL it was just. He was that kind of a person. And at the age of sixers load Tim Hortons opened in Branford area. And I remember seeing assigned to Morton is GONNA be there to sign autographs and I remember talking my mother to take me and she took me over there. I got Tim Hortons autograph I remember how say they was like all six year olds? When I got out there my mom did all the talking. They couldn't even Sorta Open my house. And you know to this day mother's chase autographs and then sort of afterwards apologize and don't worry about. My Mom. Did the same thing for me I am. I know the feeling it's okay So a couple of years ago We have a little bit of a mishap in her basement. Got a little bit of flooding and some of my friends and family were down there. Picking things up to make sure nothing got damaged in one of the things they picked up. Was this old to help them. Then my dad had down there with sort of some ribbons and pictures and stuff and low behold in in their particular album. Was the autograph from Tim. Horton so tim. Hortons called me and we talked and chatted. They wanted to get back to the grassroots of where the company started being Canadian and trying to really show people and it's a great Canadian company Over lunch I just talked about getting his autograph from from there the Tim. Hortons people Wisely put this full service commercial together and something that we're very proud of all beautiful incredible story a great commercial. You're right Wayne Gretzky. Our guests on the ran. Drake's hockey podcast. We're going to incorporate a little social media here for you. Grads a twitter question comes from Mike. Fowler and Mike is asking if you could apply one rule change that the NHL has today in today's current era. What would it be? And he's leading the question by saying would it be three on three in overtime or would it be something else Well let me tell you this. Every time we watch a hockey game and my wife and I were at the last couple of Games Boston and Toronto. And then last night we got a chance to watch. Incredible citing overtime of the Winnipeg jets and and try to make police and I think anybody and everybody was a fan who watched that were just on the edge of their seats except for the for two people. The coach Winnipeg coach Toronto But we often say Gosh. How Fun would that have been able to have three hundred three when when we played you know myself and curry and Paul coffey on the MRI Anderson. Just it would have been so much fun but I you know I. I love what we've done with our game. The game today is such a better game And that that's no not against anybody who played in the fifties or the eighties. The players today are bigger faster as you know ray. The equipment is so much better. The skates are better. Imagine how Great Bobby. Orr would've been today if he could've skated it and the skates that they used today. He basically used the tennis shoe with a blade on it. And you know to me. That's phenomenal. That's why the athletes in seventy and eighty great equipment wasn't as good but today they're bigger and they're faster they're stronger. I I like the game today. The the one thing that the one I would change and it's not a big rule. I think that it's an art to carry the POC from your own end into the offensive zone so if I had one thing that I would change wherever the whistle gets blown down delay penalty. That's where you should start from but I know we're trying to create more offense and worksite. -Ment it's a positive but I also think it's an art to be able to carry the puck from your own end into the visiting team's defensive zone so you tell so eight so you might. You must love that. A hundred and fifty foot slap pass and tip it into the zone. Exciting Paula Ninety other day was sitting there and he was always the greatest passers from his own end to center. That I've ever SEEN BABIES. Good as bobby on us and I was saying to include Jim if you could pass to the far Blue Line. How much fun would listen. That's like we'll let you go here shortly but ray you've got a tell the story. I've heard this story a couple of times the first time you had a conversation if we want to call it a conversation with Wayne Gretzky on the ice and want you to share that experience in that memory while. I'm almost certain Wayne won't remember it. I told him the second time I talked to. Wayne was in a golf cart and I told them this story and so I was my first or second year and we were in. Edmonton back then. The veterans used to be able to cheat at the face off in the linesman would never really say anything they'd have. Us young guy standing there like a frozen rule and so I'm standing there in Wayne. It's turned almost sideways backwards. And so because I was a I said why. Don't you just throw the puck in the corner for him and he doesn't have to ruin the tape on his blade and I'd never spoken to him before total. Aw and he said why. Don't you zip it and put your stick on? The ice was our first conversation and went put one. Hey Jerry something. That's that's nothing compared to my first game in the Philadelphia Spectrum. I was eighteen years old and about one hundred and fifty pounds. And I'm facing off against Bobby Clark and I look over there and I just seen all these guys on. Tv and his Don Celeski and Bob Kelly and pont and I remember thinking wow I better be on my fastest behavior today. I better get my skates move and before the puck was even drop. Bobby Kerr came in spitting in hacking like you always did brothers stick down and cut me for five stitches in the face before it drops the income stick. Yeah I go one more for you in your time in La. Your your roommate was my brother-in-law. Tony Granato now Tony. Seventy two speeds of fast. Tell me something that he was like as a roommate. I can't believe he was the most organized guy or but I bet it was an unbelievable roommate. It was the best You're lucky my career really had couple of roommates. Only Kevin lobbying one and of course. Tony Literally Tony almost passed on us. I hope people remember but yeah that minor green in your resume. Actually my house through a super bowl party that we had and went light down and thankfully his wife a spur enough to realize that it was worse than just a headache and we went to the hospital and had hours of surgery and consequently you know he's fine but listen he was just all hurting soil You know ray never. He never cheated. The game at all. Practice played heart. They love the game and just I was so blessed to have him as a roommate. he was my last roommate after he couldn't go anymore for a while. I decided that was it. I was going to get my own. We're stuck at France today. Chat with them quite a bit and I always remember how good that line was in the Toronto series of Corey Mellon Mike Donald. Tony Granato they got the game winning goal or they put us up for two three in that game seven But nobody plays more hundred more desire and and pound for pound the toughest guy that ever played with. Just the pleasure play with excellent Gretz. We WanNA thank you for joining us and taking a good junkier day away to to be part of the ranger eggs hockey podcasts. Thanks for doing this great day. Thanks guys thanks wing. Man Ray number of stories there that I hadn't heard before coming from the great one wing. Gretzky we we. We spent the better part of probably twenty four twenty five. Maybe twenty six minutes talking to this guy. We could've talked for hours because when you when you hear wing tell the stories you can you can hear you can almost feel the passion that comes out of the history of his game. I'm I'm most amazed with with the detail that he watches a play with these breaking down mcdavid goal and and of course the way that he played but he talks through establishing a new frontier in the in the southern United States. But he's given credit to everybody else you know. It's always been a trademark of him. His humble he is. I'm just astounded for as much as Wayne does for our league. There would be no end to the asks for him. What an ambassador for the sport that he is and can be It's it's really remarkable. I I loved listen to them. Tell the stories that he did. Did you appreciate the Audio Cameo from tiny? The ran drugs hockey on ASCA. Pretty clear that tiny runs at home. So as we're recording the the interview I've got a dog walking service. Normally they just opened the door and tiny goes running but apparently it wasn't the usual dog Walker so there was a stranger at the door. Hence the outburst from tiny the RENDERINGS MASCOT. I ninety with not having any of that. No luck we We need to FAG. Nobody right I I'm pretty sure it was warm. Ish in Astravo was it or or did you require the novus jacket. No no I needed it It was warm ish and then all of a sudden the wind hit and it was cold. So if if I didn't have it I would have been caught in a bad way. Warm comfortable The jacket is fantastic. It looks good to start with. But it's great if it looks good and it doesn't keep you warm doesn't do it. It's supposed to do Minorities jacket was hit it out of the park again over and Estrada the and everything you've just said applies to notice and this podcast really is about novus because early in the podcast. We talked about you doing laundry and you talked about just talked about how windy it was in the Czech Republic. All novus jackets are wind. Proof right are you probably felt that you experienced that Czech Republic they're breathable and perhaps just as important as any of that their home so you can just fire that thing right back into the clothes washing machine. What do they call them? The washing machine. I had to close watch. What we I'm like. What are you four is? I don't know what I'm doing is just given full props to our pals at Novus for making you look good which is never easy making when me look good which is next to impossible so thanks to novice for Always being there for the rain dregs podcasts. Guests have come from uh-huh all right time for everyone's favorite part of the rain drake's hoc you. Podcast is throat punch. And Ray. I've I've got something special for you bulldogs all right now. The problem is I don't know how to shut it off. Hold on the part working on it right all. Come on. Shut it off series. Obviously that's the penalty box from the world junior hockey championship in the Czech Republic. And I've got a feeling that after hearing at one time. That was enough for us at fair. I can't stand that song. Now this is this is what people I don't think understand so we're doing two games a day. Most people were watching the Canadian Game. And maybe part of the other game though in the first game. Say there's ten penalties ten times. I hear that Song the Canadian game. There's seven penalties that seventeen times a day. Somebody thought that song was a great thing to play as a player. Any pressure filled time goes to the penalty box. It sounds like it reminded me of the old Benny Hill thing. Benny Hill theme get. I hated it. I couldn't even I. It would come on and you'd be like I can't even ignore it how much I dislike. Know what it was called. I think it was called Charlie Charlie something. I'd like to meet Charlie. Tell him to beat it. So Charlie gets a throat punch for sure what is going to take away from the throat punches as you were playing the song people can't see you were kind of dancing and shoulder shuffle gone. I'm not I can see. I can see why Holly thought you were a great idea back in the day. Oh what a smooth dancer. Hey you know how we met by the way It was actually I if you're old enough to appreciate this but in small town I'm GonNa say Canada but it was a Western candidates. Scotch when they used to bring in. When the ice was out in the summer they would bring in like a Roller Skating Company. Right and once a week. There'd be like a roller skating party in the Land Bird Arena Landaburu schedule. And that's where hall and I met for the first time I was like fourteen. Fifteen at the time admire skin-tight GW. Jeez on sweet ass. Like I mean really really nice and on top of that. I was wearing a Pittsburgh pirates. Remember the old Pittsburgh Pirates Hats. That were lawsuits. I mean like coke wouldn't want she's always human anyway. It wasn't my dancing. It was a masculinity on roller skates. Not Blades Skates these. Things had four wheels man. Did you have your own? No which is. It's a personal pet peeve of mine. That's the reason I don't go bowling and roller skating. Gross me out because I'm wearing somebody else's toe jam and I'm not digging it. Yeah I can bring your own socks to bowling. Oh yeah I wear socks but I guess they sprayed them. I don't know what they're sure. They did back in the eighties. Spreadable rights anyway. This is what happens when you bring pauly or tiny. I've always got a story right. And then they're usually ridiculous. That's good but my throat punch goes to the goal song because I couldn't stand it bugged me. I would give a secondary one to Corey. Perry for his play in the game. Yeah because it's funny. You can defend if you want but the stuff piles around the same guys all the time. It's coming from the side. There's only one place you're gonNA hit the player. And that's Ryan Ellis. Yeah there's only one place I didn't like that place. Oh did you think I mean five was the maximum without the in person hearing so I thought it would have been Alderman. Yes absolutely I just. I don't see how there was any other result that was going to happen from trying to make a hit right in that position. Well Yeah I'm not struggling with this but it's it's not as defined as I would like it to be normally the throat punch as you've described is it's individualized. It's either again. Your candidates Corey Perry for the five game suspension. Being perhaps a bit light for dirty play or the penalty box song. I get that I'm going with anyone who continues to oppose more three on three overtime and I get it be as I've talked to general managers about this coaches. There's at least a hint of concern that you're going to stress overplay your top dogs your top players because those are the players that are going to be out there in ending standard window of three on three but I've also talked to players and I've talked to goaltenders and there wouldn't be many who prefer the shootout over an extended three on three so my throat punch goes to anyone who says now we're good with what we have five minutes with three three overtime and leave the shoot up and in fairness that might go all the way up to the Commissioner's Office because Gary Bettman as always been a strong proponent and advocate of the shooter for me it's an individual's skills competition. I want and need more three on three. I don't I don't understand the on board with the debate over it. You know it's more ice time for your stars while if it is than us some other guys yeah right now because the the shootout. I liked it when it first came in I was on board with it. I'm like this well. Then all of a sudden there's too many games going to shootout and I'm like It's not that overtime. Toronto and Winnipeg last night was spectacular. Well they're not always spectacular right all the time they you know you don't get the best version you know you guys kind of. They're going to control the park. They're GONNA come back to center. Whatever it might be. I would much prefer that to me. That's closer to real hockey. Then you have to You know to the shadow and the reason that they will always look for an ending is because the ties were just they were unpalatable to the North American audience. Like in soccer. You have tie on the European tie it just finishes tie basketball they play. They don't go to a free throw shooting contest or three or three point shooting contest. They play overtime till it ends. I would prefer that too. I'm with you on this all right. We've got to ask Ray Andrey coming up. Do you WANNA play. You want me to play Charlie one more time Ray. Is we leave throat punch or should I just let that Rusk? I've I've almost had enough of Charlie You know what's really been interesting to drake's is how many people send it to me on twitter at me to the group that will be tweeting it at in the very near future perhaps as part of the limited promotional work that you do in supporting the rain breaks occupied cast on. These are all right. Let's go between the benches and we're gonNA start with a positive and then we'll shift over to somewhat of a negative story. Line your thoughts on the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Arizona coyotes if you look at the Columbus Blue Jackets radio months ago we're talking about Columbus. What is going on with the Blue Jackets? I mean at that point a month ago their way out of the playoffs and you know all of a sudden now. They're right the thick of things yet again yet. Well it's funny. I would say that you know we. Can you know we? It's pretty easy to to point out. What what amuses us at times from from John Tortorella when he snaps at the podium when he you know any is so fiery. The Guy can coach because their team was decimated in the offseason. They lost rate. Now are Tammy perine had sixty points New York. So they lose him they lose Brodsky. They've got to totally unproven. Goalies and Yoenis corpuscle. Who got hurt and Elvis? Moore's Lincoln's there forward group is just gutted with injury and yet now they've got fifty points on the season there. Ten One and four in their last fifteen games. They're they're at the second wildcard spot two points behind Philly two points behind Carolina I find it astounding and of course nobody really notices or none of us really pay much attention. But you're like damn they're doing unbelievable and I think it has to be knowledged Arizona's We talk it on earlier and talk to him. About what A. What a great job. He's done in the coyotes of done. This division is jammed up. You've got between first and fifth. You've got four point separating teams but Arizona's at the top of the heap. They got twenty five. Wins the both goalies on a lineup? Anti rant is hurt again and Darcy Camper got hurt now. It's down to goalie three Eden Hill and they went again talks. Done an amazing job out there but getting Taylor Hall adds another level to their team. Kessel start to warm up to the deal and they're not going to be an easy cure and some credit to John. The general manager. Who knows I mean? That's that's a coup that's a big deal and acquiring Taylor all may not be done between now and and the trade deadline. If you pay much attention to this I think you do you know it's always fun. When you see basketball players tee off show personality we see it in the NBA. Of course we see it and in the NFL to some degree on occasion. You see it from baseball players. Rarely do we see just pure personality from NHL Stars? There are a handful. There are a handful. I everytime Brad Marchand opens his mouth. I want to hear what he has to say. And and there are other players who are like that because they're not afraid of the media and they've figured out a while ago that you know what it's part of brand building is part of brand building now you can go to the extreme with. Pk Superman but then you can take it all the way back to Connor mcdavid. Who clearly doesn't doesn't love the camera. He knows that you know being captain of team matters and he has to speak with the media. I don't that he's. He's intimidated at all by media. I just don't get the sense of the enjoys doing it. Is that missed opportunity by? Nhl Players in failing to build their brand because they're not embracing the opportunity to give us more. Yeah it's it's a mess. It's a mess by the players in. It's a missed by the league. Now the league brings in the top players at the start of the year they have that media junket and they film a bunch of commercials and things that get shown throughout the year. Like I saw him You know the magician. That's doing all these tracks with the players. That's all done at the media tour. I really liked that stuff. Because you see the guys are laughing trying to figure it out now. Not Every interview has to be a grand slam but what happens too. Often I think is the players so either are uninterested or distrust what the interviews about. They don't give anything and it's not that you have to give up deep dark secret. Just pretend to be entered to to be interested watched Kesari cap and in the other day. Do over the boards interview before the game and I and I guess I am picking on him but I don't really mean to. It's just the latest one I saw. He was doing the over the board so the reporter asked a question. They put the mic in front of him. At no time does he look at the reporter nor look at the camera. He's watching the league skate. Around in warm-up disinterest made it kind of struck a chord with me I'm going out damn guys if you can just be interested. Maybe the casual fan becomes more interested. Maybe the hardcore fan becomes even more interested. Maybe you start to build your brand a little bit well. What does that do building? Your brand means if there's more interest there's more revenue like let's get right down to the bottom line. More revenue means more hockey related revenue. Which means maybe you're hated escrow. We'll go down. Yeah but you have to be open to doing it and too many guys are closed off to it and it. I think it's a myths. Now Look I like to talk. And that's the way you know that's the way I'm built. I never found it to be too much of a Chore Gas Question. Answer the question and move along. You agree agree to do these over. The board interviews. So why do them right or don't do them now get somebody else to do it? Tell the PR guy. I don't feel like doing it. But the due to do such a uninterested jaw with it. I think I think it just makes guys look bad is funny you bring up the Toronto Maple leaves and that experience with with gas berry and not to pile on the leafs here and obviously there's zoned out there. They're focused. They're thinking about what they need to do in the game by. Okay let me let me stop you for a sec in warm up you're not thinking about you're not thinking about the game now you're just trying to get loose. They'll let you looking row thirteen to see who happens to be sitting there No I think you're maybe I don't know you look at the guys that are off the boomer. You know the have a laugh. They're getting one the games in a half an hour and look over at the other team and you go. Yeah okay. This guy's there that guy's not playing okay. You notice that and then you warm up. It's not like you're just grinding through place. They've done the same warm up since one thousand nine hundred five right. Come out and circle around your you. Go into the coroner's yes. Kato you take your pass from the other guy you do with hang onto two on one and Bob your uncle your out of there. Well the reason I bring up his soul so last night and I don't know if you saw you know we're recording on on Thursday here so it was Wednesday night. Kaba Costas is interviewing William Mainlander exact scenario and they've got some some video some B. Roll of of Neil under trying to get into the leaves dressing room so he's arriving at the arena. Y'All in the street clothes. He's trying to get the doors locked and he can't get in which is a music. I mean everybody wants to see that it's it's it's funny and he asked me. Landeros as last question I think nealon or maybe out of two word response. That was it just. You didn't blow him off. He wasn't rude. He just was not having any part of explaining what happened and why he'd been locked out a leaves room. You know what a longtime ago I remember Kevin Shattenkirk got traded to know. It wasn't Kevin Shattenkirk Somebody was traded to the capital's And he turned around he did the interview right outside the capital's door and the door was locked and so he made he made light of it. You know we tried it. And then he added again and he kind of like you. Don't have to be an Oscar actor no but you can have a little bit of Zip. I mean. I'm sure once the door got unlocked. Kneeland or founded funny. No question right. I just think it's a mask drags. I just think it's a mess all right. Well we're not GONNA mess on the ask Ray and dregs questions today and Dario. Oddly enough question one is about the Toronto Maple leafs and it comes from LE- Le- wants your opinion rate on the Toronto Maple leaves should adjust their approach putting the TAVERAS line against the other teams top line or should they switched to the minor line with Matthew going against the best as Mars. Better defensively than to verison. You know he's saying it was an apparent mess versus the mcdavid line earlier in the week to Aris seemingly got torched by mcdavid minor stripped him of the POC. Would you make that adjustment why I do think a couple of things first of all you can match lines in? That's important but it's the defense that really carry the water here in the match against another another top line. So the leafs in that game. We're playing Martin. Marin and Justin Hall against mcdavid they got caved in right now. That's bad match. That diverse line is well. They got a shot. Twenty two four now. Mcdavid was unbelievable and tomorrow's line was not very good. I don't know that I would go with one over the other like as this is the way. I'm always going to do it. I think there's some cases where Matthews as his game has continued to grow that that would be the one that I would use and then other times it would be bars. I think they have. You have to look at it as to what you can't have a plan cemented. That never changes I would. I would look at both guys and who you trust enough against another top line might not be the same guy all the time off the top of the podcast we. We talked a lot about the world junior championship. And I guess we'll wrap up that event with this and it comes from Chris Christie's wandering what the NHL can do to make the world junior hockey championship more popular in the United States. That's where Chris Lives He says very few people in America have the NHL Channel as it costs. More money So it would be better if games were available on a free channel. Like NBC. Something along those lines to get a greater audience to see and follow the tournament like it is in Canada any ideas on that and I mean I guess we kind of stay in our own little pond here and worry but we worry about in Canada. Yeah I you know I know they have they do have it on the NHL Network Just the US Games for the most part. I think as far as it being on a free channel cable channel now right like you it would be hard to imagine that a over the air channel is going to pick it up. I mean they I guess technically they could But somebody's got to foot the bill on that could it be part of a grass roots or more grass roots pushed to these players get into the public consciousness a little earlier perhaps could USA hockey being more involved in it absolutely however just unless the unless the NHL and yeah you know what they can. It comes down to money if somebody wants to pay for the right. Then then they can put on their channel or they can stream it right but somebody has to pay for the rights. You don't get to have the product it's just not the way. The business works all right final question from Carson Ray. What made you decide to go into broadcasting as opposed to working in a team front office after you retired. Great Question Okay. I always thought I was GONNA coach. And then I thought I was going to get into management just before last year in Atlanta. My my wife and I separated. I was getting divorced so when I retired My ex wife was GONNA move to Vancouver. Which is where we are now and I could not I promise the boys Matt and Landon that I wouldn't I wouldn't leave. I wouldn't travel. They were ten and thirteen and so coaching instantly fell out like I. I couldn't do it. And so then you know. So we got settled here in Vancouver and got remarried and Then cammie and I had Riley and pretty soon time just kind of moved away from that. I done some broadcasting while I was playing and it seemed as it was something that people thought could be okay at or good at or whatever and I liked it and then I got offered Joe or offered to audition for the oilers color job. I got that job and I retired in. May of two thousand and two in an October. I started on TV. I had no idea what I was doing. And then all of a sudden I was the color commentator the oilers and it was it was an beyond seamless transition going from one to the other but I had no idea what I was doing but I did it mostly for family for to be around the boys as much as possible so name. Every team was expressed interest in hiring. You and a hockey capacity. Go ahead there. You are finished. He asked by the way. Why chose my career path? I didn't have the same option I could've worked in a potash mine in yesterday's scheduling could've stayed on the farm. I could talk. I wasn't a very good hockey player. But something about this industry stuck with me. I was actually driving. New York. Densest Gach when when my mom and I heard a radio AD break From Western Academy in Saskatoon and it was as big booming voice a guy by the name Don Scott and it was hi. My name is Don Scott. Do you want a radio career? Something along those what happened so anyway. That's what I did I said. Hey you know what do that or become a phys ed teacher. And I didn't think I'd be good at that either so I think you made the right choice man. I'm going to tell one story about I'm broadcasting on. Espn as I'm still playing rights. When my team's got eliminated from the playoffs they called. Said you WANNA come and do some. Tv work. I said sure so now. This has gone on for a couple of years by this point. We're playing in the playoffs. It's my last year against Detroit. And there's a scrum the net everybody's pushing and shoving inury Fisher is got me by the shirt collar. Jerry Fisher. If you don't remember him. He had a hard episode and actually have been tire early Fortunately with saved by a guy that I've gotten to know Dr Tony Colucci They saved him on the bench. And you're he's gone on. He's scouts with the Red Wings and is in great physical shape now but you're it was about six foot five so he had me by the shirt collar pinned up against the back of the net. And Steve Is Herman Skates around. The back of an and he goes. Hey Ray why? Don't you analyze that insatiable you just kind of like a fly by me by the neck and I was like trying to stay out? Stay alive all right so so. I'm actually happy about talking about the rain. Drake's fantasy hockey pool this week in episode fourteen. Why happy well because we we should give a huge congratulations stan. You're a Victoria. Bc Aaron on top wins first place in the raindrops fantasy hockey pool following the winter. Classic Game January first so Aaron Scores. Twenty five hundred bucks in prepaid credit cards as our first half of the season winner. Aaron doesn't know this right but added bonus to the prize. Package is dinner with you and Cammie really. We're would that be all better? Eggers aren't really nice. You and all. That's fantastic congratulations. Aaron Spend Your Twenty five hundred wisely. Kurt Hamlin Rape Behind Erin Brewer. At six hundred sixty eight points rate cruising along my friend. Five hundred seventy eight points. Forty six better than me and some stiff name Robert Reece. Isn't that far behind East? At least six hundred and forty three points so well ahead of you and I forgot to check on Landon. Did you check on Landon? I did not no I did not. I mean these awesome. Yeah yeah all right. So I mean I virtually have no chance of of climbing up the standings and being part of the Shenanigans of the second half but I do like the chances of of Kurt. Hahn who knows maybe Erin. Brewer Goes wire-to-wire okay. Well here's another thing we could do like you already owe me a spectacular dinner in Switzerland. Premature celebration right but keep going You we could maybe have a second-half bet own no you know what was our first half but the dinner not. I. I bet there wasn't one you were so confident you were. GonNa win until you're clearly dragging up the pack here. I don't know maybe we could come up with some for the second half to keep the people interested because it's a route right now. It's not even close so the thousand dollars. Us that it's like a unit cost me in. Lausanne isn't enough like what are you. What are you proposing? I'm GONNA give this a thought for the week and I think we have a chance here.

You night has fallen the path leads you to the entrance of what seems to be a house. You can see a gate you can go south or north. Oh my God. I'm already overwhelmed. Well, how about this in an attempt for the story to go north? Let's go south. But that's where we came from. True true. I didn't think about that. Okay. So then what happens if I press north? Okay. So you can use this as an option. Oh, oh, it says the north gate is closed. I clicked northern says the north gate is closed. So south don't click. Let's make a decision together Julian slowdown.

The emblem really fucked up a small stone emblem with a tree engraved on it. I want it. Okay. You take the him. Should we leave the room? Now. Should we look at the desk? Just not dusk. I thought maybe this was like a chance for us to go back and make it right? But we didn't we didn't have the chance to didn't give us the option to. Right. Let's go into the bathroom. Bathroom seems locked from the other side whole. No, no, no, no, no, no. Okay. Let's go back to the first four someone's locked in the bathroom. It's locked from the inside. So we don't know. So this is where the painting used to be in the first or the the first landing now, there's a small hole. Because it fell off and hit us in the head. Maybe let's look at the whole. He looked through the small hole and see the completely overgrown garden behind the house. Unfortunately, the small holes just big enough for a mouse to get through. Take unfortunate. I'd love for mouse to come into my house. You can't take it. Okay. Wanna go downstairs? Yeah. Yeah. So it's downstairs. You can't go downstairs because the staircase collapsed. Was the earthquake is something that I missed. Hello. All right. Let's go west into the study what the way to the study is blocked by a big pile of rubble. What is going on? We are we go back to the bedroom. You find yourself in. What seems to be the message in the house the baroque wallpaper design on the walls covered. In blood stains blood trail leads to the bathroom on the east. You can see a bed a closet in a desk can go west or east while we tried going. Knife or something on the bathroom door. So we don't have a knife anymore. We have a note the meds in an emblem. Let's try to go to the bathroom. It's locked from the other side. So we can't go anywhere upstairs. We use the emblem. Yeah. On which object. We can use it on the blister strips. So we can open up the blister shirt. Oh, you can't use it. Okay. All right. Let's use it on. The note the Chhaya anything she's on the note. Nope. Season on the bed. Ks it that way? Let's use it on the. No, it's not as he's anything desk. Can't use it that way we can't use the implement. So we can't go anywhere upstairs except for the locked bathroom door in the bedroom. And the bedroom has a bed closet and a desk as we know. What the closet the closet closet is filled with men's clothing in the doors lay broken on the floor. Oh, never mind, the women's clothing and shoes almost everything contains blood the doors lay broken on the four. Okay. Well, key, try and stuff. Let's open can't open. Let's take it. He don't wanna touch them. Desk. Just normally desk. Take can't take us to. King size bed sheets are stained with blood. Take tone tests that I don't understand when you go to the hallway. It's just a whole. And that's it. Really? Yeah. Go up. We haven't looked at the no yet since the no. Oh, I'm sorry. But I just can't take any longer. You wanna go back to the main lending? I don't have a little confused. Right. So we're on the landing above the stairs. You're on the first floor, which means the second east Downer west. So we go down it's blocked staircase collapse. Okay. We go west rubble in the way can't get to the study or downstairs, we can only get to the bathroom. We use them on the small hole. Oh, we place. The emblem firmly in the hole and here. Click the tree on the emblem suddenly lights up at hurts. Your is a high pitched sound enters your ears, and you slowly lose consciousness. Holy crap. Dude. What? Forest the sound of police sirens, enters your ears, you open your eyes and slowly stand up trees, surround you it. Seems you woke up in a forest a policeman. Shouts police put your hands up put your hands in the air here. Arrested for the murder of your wife. Continue. That's it. Oh my God. So basically, we just. What I don't get. Where were we when we started? That's the weird part in the forest, but if there was already blood everywhere. We killed our wife in our house. And then we dragged her body into the forest. So we must a passed out or fallen asleep or something in the forest somebody found her body. And then we had this dream where we went back, and you know, I guess revealed to ourselves what we had done, and then we will up we're getting arrested. That's so normally I guess the worst part though, is that like you could go over to the good side or the previous side where nothing happened yet. And you couldn't do anything. Yeah. We tried everything. Yeah. Damn that's dark. Do was dark. Scary scary. Why didn't he just take his medicine? I know I the thing is I wonder if there was a different outcome. I don't know there has to be. I feel so unsatisfied feel sad. I feel sad when a hug. If you're listening on items were hugging. I mean, that's like the thing about these. Choose your own adventures is like you don't know what you're gonna get you could get something. Like last one. We did where that guy was part of that gang, and he had to go kill bunch of people that she was gnarly. Yeah. But it's like what how do you expect you? There's nothing. It's a story. Expect what's going to happen? I was really fun though was one. I liked the format of that. It's like a game almost. Yeah. Honestly, I feel like what what's cool, right? Is anyone can go on this website? I think actually I'm sure there are websites like, but anyone can go on H who's your eventual. And right. Your your fiction, you can create your own story. So in theory, like the one of you guys could make a really cool one. We could read on the podcast. The only problem is like we can't vet you know, what I mean, we'd have to have some why we would have to have someone play it first to make sure it's all good and like good enough planned podcast. And that's kind of like the hard part about playing these. We don't have a producer. We don't have anyone is just us run in this podcast. So like, I don't know. Maybe we can think of a way to do this to where we have it prescreened. We haven't ready or even like personalized. To like, the podcast was really I like that though those fun. I was fun is also different than the first time that we did. It was the first one was very much a story. Yes. And this one was more of like a almost a physical game that you're choosing your physical location felt like like a murder mystery again. Yeah. Which was cool. And there wasn't nearly as much swearing the last one. You remember how much swearing there was a lot who's really gnarly. But anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed listening. Noah's player choose your own adventure. Fine feel free to tweet at us. If you have ideas on how we can do this better, given it's just Jan myself running the podcast like it, though. You know, you guys like it. You know, I was going through podcast and this one you guys really loved. So I was like just to another one part two. So. No screaming. Okay. Mommy's gonna give you a hug now. Kermit's crying. And that means it's time to end the podcast. So have you guys have a wonderful week have a wonderful rest of your car ride have a wonderful nap or night's sleep. And we'll see you guys on the next one. Have a good one.
