Shopping for Health Care: How Consumer Can Use Purchasing Power to Get What They Need with Deb Gordon
"Welcome back to the outcomes rockets Sal Marquez here, and they have the privilege of hosting for the Second Time Miss Deb Gordon, she's spent her career trying to level the playing field for health care consumers haven't listened to the first podcasts with DAB. You've gotta go listen to it. It's all about the consumer and healthcare. She's all about you. She's all about your employees and how you can get the most for your healthcare dollar. She's the author of the healthcare consumers manifesto how to get the most for your money based on research she conducted as a senior fellow. At the Harvard Kennedy, School Center for Business and government she's a former health insurance executive and health care CEO. She's an aspen. Institute health innovators fellow and an Eisenhower fellow, her research and commentaries have appeared in USA Today, the Harvard Business Review blog, and on network open. She holds a B A in bioethics from Brown University and an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School and I'm excited to dive into her work again around the consumer's manifesto deb such a privilege to have you back on. Hey, saw. Thanks so for having me back. Yeah, absolutely. So you've been busy. I have been busy. That's true. I spent probably a year doing research for this book and another year writing a not exactly that split but I spend a good two years of my life producing this baby and it is exciting to come back and tell you about it because when we first met, I was just starting to think about it. I was just starting the research and listening to what consumers had to say. So I'm excited to be back to talk more about it the same here and so dab you know obviously. So listeners goal isn't a DEB's podcast. This you get a deeper appreciation about her time as an insurance executive and what has inspired her work and focus in the consumer sphere but a little bit about the book. Dab. You know what's the focus area? What are the takeaways at a high level? Sure. So I wrote the book mainly to expose the human side of healthcare costs like what is really going on for people when we go to the doctor or were phasing an insurance decision and we have to pay. For it and I was really taken with the fact that so many people of all walks of life come to me and say because I used to work health insurance they know I know something about it and they just say what should I do and you know the most extraordinary people who've accomplished so much in their lives walk into my office at the Kennedy School at Harvard and alike, what health insurance should I buy and I. It just dawned on me that if people like that need help and it's Legitimate that they do. It's very confusing and can be overwhelming like what chance is you know everyone else have of making sense of these decisions. So that's the motivation that I I brought into the book and then in doing my research for it, I heard story after story of consumer. So real people who are trying to get value for their healthcare dollars whether they use those kind of terms or not I say like shopping for healthcare is a thing we could do people don't use those words and they don't even. Know what I'm talking about. But you know I interviewed people about their experiences spending money on healthcare and what I learned is that although it feels really foreign to put that into shopping terms or you know we know how to buy things but we don't know how to shop around in healthcare and. It doesn't mean we're not able to. That's I think the biggest takeaway is that we do actually have more power than we might even realize and that the first step is to just ask the question, what if what, if I could get what I needed? What do I need? Why do I need this? Is there an alternative and just almost like re imagine ourselves as a customer when it comes to healthcare this is Dr is nervous and unhappy by the way, but it's not a slight against doctors. It's just you know what I think consumers need for whatever reason we need permission almost to think of ourselves as entitled to get value for our healthcare dollars.
The pandemic may cause 40 million Americans to lose their homes
"About 1/3 of all Americans rent their homes, and a new report for the Aspen Institute shows the pandemic related unemployment crisis could mean eviction. For more than 40% of those households without additional relief measures. Roz Brown reports. Nevada is behind only Alabama, where renters are the most vulnerable to eviction. Other top states for vulnerable renters include Oklahoma, Louisiana and New York City Co author Sam Gillman says the loss of housing often ushers in serious legal consequences and suffering for families. It leads to Children not being able to go to school, homelessness, depression and diseases of despair. An eviction offends everything in a family's life. Nevada has created a rant relief program. But the state's $30 million in assistance relies entirely on federal funds and stimulus talks have stalled in Congress. President Donald Trump circumventing Congress on Saturday by signing executive orders, he says, will deliver aid to Americans, including an eviction moratorium, But it's not clear if their constitutional or substantive, the report shows. A 37% of Nevada renters are at risk of eviction by the end of the year. Visions don't change, Gillman says. Some renters will be able to borrow money or work something out with their landlord. But eventually those options will be exhausted. And at that point, that's when this pick your natural disaster metaphor. Eviction. Avalanche tsunami tornado will continue to start carrying through and accelerating through our communities, according to Gilman. It's not just runners who will be affected, but also landlord's. Those mom and pop landlords are also severely at risk in this rental housing crisis, because if the Rangers can't pay rent The landlord's can't pay their mortgages and we could see the acceleration of a rental housing crisis into a foreclosure crisis. Gilman notes that black and Latino Americans who already experience a greater risk of Cove in 19 make up about 80% of those facing eviction for

I will not exchange one brutal oppressor for another
"I don't say this from a place of privilege is quite the opposite. It comes from a real place of pain but Mike Bloomberg is the line that I simply will not cross. I can't here's what you may not know and if you are a supporter of Mike Bloomberg. I'm assuming you don't know this Mike. Bloomberg directly caused real pain real trauma in harm to people that I know personally people that I love and call my friend. That's not rhetoric. I'm telling you that. His decisions his policies his personal directives ruined the actual lives of countless men. Women boys girls and families all over New York City in many of them will never recover. Here's the thing. Because social media did not exist on the scale that it exists today during most of his time as mayor of New York from two thousand and two until two thousand thirteen with his final year in office being the literal year before the Black Lives Matter Movement began. Bloomberg narrowly escaped the nationwide public accountability and scrutiny. But he no doubt would have received in any subsequent year after he left office and as a result. New Yorkers particularly black and Brown New Yorkers have something akin to a collective P. T. S. D. over the harmony cost and. I don't want what I'm about to tell you to be a twenty reasons not to vote for Bloomberg type of peace. Those things out there. I just need you to understand the size scope scale in vile nature of the twelve years where Bloomberg personally oversaw in turbo charged a citywide stop and Frisk policy. Let me break down Britain epic. Bring it bears. What Mike Bloomberg did in his twelve years in office as mayor of New York City was the closest thing the United States has got to Jim Crow Apartheid South Africa in our lifetime. Now Bloomberg will tell you that. Hey everything I did. Existed before him that would be like saying prisons existed before the explosion of mass incarceration from nineteen seventy five until today yeah. Prisons existed but on a scale that was on par with the rest of the developed. Worl see from eighteen. Seventy to nineteen seventy the United States consistently incarcerated fewer than two hundred fifty thousand people per year. Today we incarcerate over two point five million people on any given day and over ten million people per year it's exploded so yes prisons existed before nineteen seventy yes a policy of stop and Frisk existed before Bloomberg took office. But he exploded. That's what he did. When he became mayor he grew it and expanded exponentially. Just give me a minute to explain it to you. In the twelve years Bloomberg was in office he ordered the NYPD. I need you to understand these figures. He ordered the NYPD to stop and Frisk people almost exclusively black and brown people a staggering five million eighty one thousand six hundred eighty nine times. Are you listening to me? And those are just stops. That police officers actually documented. Some people believe the actual numbers could be twice as high completely innocent. People were strip searched. Punched kicked slammed beaten groped. Tasers choked in shot in these stops drugs were planted. People were framed in tens of thousands of people. Every single year or arrested sent to rikers for crimes. They did not commit then eventually released without ever even going to court. Some people spent days in jail where they lost their jobs. Single parents lost custody of their kids. Others they did and spend days in rikers but they spend weeks months and even years for crimes they didn't commit. And while they were there in rikers like a young man a teenage boy named Khalif browder. They were beaten and tortured by both guards and inmates alike forced into solitary confinement for years on end then simply released without even an explanation. When Khalif Browder was released he was broken and took his own life. Experts say tens of thousands of other innocent men women and children were either cokes by prosecutors and police enter taking plea deals so that they could simply be released for time served or just chose to take the deals simply so that they could escape the madness of the jail only to be released from rikers back into Bloomberg's New York where they were routinely stopped and frisked again and again and again some individuals were stopped and frisked by the NYPD. Over a hundred different times. Can you imagine now when I say over a hundred times? I'm not using that number one hundred as a euphemism for a lot. I mean they were literally in stopped literally searched and stopped by the NYPD over one hundred times as parents and activists and organizers and preachers in mental health experts in justice reform advocates in constitutional lawyers all begged and pleaded with Bloomberg to stop. He were a few people met with him personally demanding that he stop begging that he stopped. They marched and protested in New York dozens of times. They interrupted his events in some of the smartest most persistent legal groups in the nation sued the Bloomberg Administration over and over and over again to stop these unlawful practices in a federal judge that Dean Bloomberg's stop and Frisk policies that deemed that they were indeed a modern day apartheid for black and Brown New Yorkers. She found that countless constitutional violations existed as she ordered an immediate halt to what he had done for nearly twelve years and even then he fought back against it and refuse to immediately implement the charges and changes rather that she demanded now when Bloomberg left office and his stop and Frisk was no longer a policy. Crime actually plummeted year after year after year. His racist policies that he said he had in place to make New York. Safer didn't make New York safer at all. New York got safer after stop and Frisk ended. All he had done was caused real terror to millions and millions of people and after this man Left Office. Bloomberg bragged about the policy and defended it with all his might. That's why in Twenty fifteen. He asked the staff at the SNOOTY Aspen Institute to turn off the cameras when he spoke there in bragged about how police withrow black and brown boys against the walls. All in the name of making New York City safer. He knew what he was saying was ugly. Have you heard that audio? Those kids that he's talking about and their mothers and fathers and siblings were not just humiliated by such an awful practice it shattered many of them and Bloomberg literally defended all of this after the policy had stopped after it was ruled unconstitutional. He defended it deep into twenty nineteen right up until he decided to run for president. And here's the thing. I have dedicated my life to fighting back against Donald Trump and his policies. I have campaign to oust horrible politicians and have helped elect bold promising new ones all over the country. I've endangered my family in pursuit of tracking down and bringing White Supremacist Neo Nazis. To justice so yes. Donald Trump is our mortal enemy and I work directly with the people in communities that his evil has impacted the most he must be defeated and he can be. I will not support one oppressor to another one. I want to
In 2015 audio, Bloomberg advocates targeting minorities
"Former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg launched his democratic presidential bid with an apology for his support for New York stop and frisk policy now he's apologizing for comments he made it a twenty fifteen appearance at the Aspen Institute in which she defended the practice saying the way to bring down murder rates is to quote but a lot of cops in minority neighborhoods because that's where all the crime is in the audio Bloomberg says that you can't quote just take the description Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops in a statement Bloomberg says he inherited the policy and that his remarks don't reflect his commitment to criminal justice reform and racial equity he says he cut back on the policy but quote I should have done it faster and sooner president trump sent out and then deleted a tweet highlighting the audio declaring Bloomberg's a total racist trump has himself been a vocal supporter of stop and frisk policies Jennifer king Washington
What U.S. Religious Liberty Means — Especially When It Comes To Islam
"The trump administration is made religious liberty a central theme of this presidency for example the US department of health and Human Services now has a conscience and religious freedom division the president has champion judges who have ruled in favor of people seeking religious exemptions to laws and just last month the White House strengthen protections for kids who want to pray at school as mood and is part of my dean is part of the inclusive America project at the Aspen Institute she is also the author of a book on religious liberty called when Islam is not a religion she told me that president trump's focus marks a change from previous administrations there has been just a more pronounced public affirmation of the positive role of religion in American society the need to protect it often we hear from various government officials whether be Mike Pompeii or president trump or US Attorney General bill Barr or even just sessions when he announced religious liberty task force of the department justice is constant refrain about religion is under threat by secularization threatening forces but on on the left to the protection of religion and the protection of our religious freedom that has become a constant refrain what communities have benefited from the administration's attention to the issue or their religious communities that have essentially been left out yeah so we can then candidate Ted Cruz said that it was he called it the religious liberty of election and he said that it was ultimately about like the person who would be able to defend religious liberty the vast and president trump and Ben Carson I'm ricksantorum all got on the bandwagon said absolutely this is about religious liberty and we're going to protect religious liberty for elected president but at the same time as they were making the statement there also competing with each other to determine who could be the most discriminatory against Muslims whether it be present from suggestions about creating a Muslim registry or about banning Muslims from U. S. which as we know when he has before with that as well or be Ted Cruz's suggestion that we surveil Muslim neighborhoods in the aftermath he brought that up in the aftermath of a terrorist incident or ricksantorum saying that Islam absolutely was different from Christianity fee so that is not ours protected under the first amendment as Christianity is and so there was like this obvious hypocrisy so what you saw was a creation of a hierarchy of faith even within this world of law to me yes I even beyond just the creation of a hierarchy I actually saw denial of a song even being a religion that had access through religious freedom another suggestion that present from brought up during the campaign was to close down mosques when you create such as Turk disparity between types of things that you're willing to protect for quote unquote religion and then say that the most basic of religious freedom rights are not afforded to a particular group of people you know how exactly are you explaining that what's the logic there and it didn't take much to figure out what that is because unfortunately increasingly common talking point among many people in the White House and in that sort of larger network is that Islam is not a religion it is a dangerous political ideology and therefore Muslims don't have religious freedom rights can you think of a policy directive from the trump administration that on paper looks good for religious liberties but in reality has really only been and that positive for evangelical Christians more or less just one group well I think that even in the space of Christianity increasingly you hear this I'll cry from our progressive Christians that they feel that the way that Christianity is being defined and champion tends to only happen from this particular angle and of course a constant concern in the context of specifically the sexuality related culture wars is that the rights of LGBT individuals including all your between the visuals of faith or people who hold different positions on abortion contraception from real religious standpoint are being undermined and to that end I think that is has to come from an understanding that religious liberty is not in some way just to safeguard for traditional religious beliefs it is a secret just for beliefs of a wide diversity anywhere they fall on the political spectrum and again the diverse religious spectrum and so what I hope for and I do see some movement on this for more progressive religious liberty groups to bring to the fore more progressive religious claims and say look religious liberty is for this too my concern is that if the rhetoric in the op in the enforcement of some of these policies continues to be only it's thought through in the frame of traditional religious beliefs then there will be other types of religious claims I won't be as protected I don't really have a concrete examples are not being protected but I do see this increasing sort of urgency from our progressive groups to be like what we have these claims to and because religious liberty protects the range and doesn't privilege one particular interpretation or another that are religious claims are also protected husband Jean thank you so much for speaking with us thank you as a dean is part of the inclusive America project at the aspen institute and the author of the book when Islam is not a
Bolton pessimistic on North Korea
"Well the president's former national security adviser John Bolton giving a pessimistic outlook on the prospects for getting North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons marking his first public appearance since he was ousted from his position earlier this year there are things we should look to and have serious discussions about. one is the possibility limited though it may be a regime change in North Korea. second. we should look at and discuss with China and we should have done it long ago aiming toward the reunification of the peninsula under freely elected government like that in South Korea. and third if you believe and you may not. that it is unacceptable for North Korea to have nuclear weapons at some point. military force has to be an option now this is obviously the most controversial subject and many people say it's just unimaginable. unimaginable that you would use military force. so let me quote to you. the words of. general Joe John done for the chairman the joint chiefs of staff on his last day I might say is chairman he's done an outstanding job he said this. to the Aspen Institute salmon are in the summer of twenty eighteen. on this question of what's unimaginable. general Dunford said but as I've told my counterparts both friend and foe it is not unimaginable to have military options to respond to north Korea's nuclear capability. what is unimaginable to me. is allowing the capability to allow nuclear weapons to land in Denver Colorado. my job will be to develop military options to make sure that doesn't happen thank general Dunford was completely correct that warning from John Bolton who for awhile served as the president's national security adviser being for being forced out his first public comments before the center for strategic and International Studies CSIS here in Washington

"And I'm Scott Galloway coming to from our nation's capital today care, are you what were you doing there? I had breakfast. With about a dozen congressmen congresswomen and a few senators, and then I met with another Senator to talk about big tack. Let's hear about what happened. What why were they all together for breakfast? I am just was in Washington. Now, I'm in New York City, but what was the breakfast about? So there's a breakfast that's hosted by the Aspen institute. And it's every where we Thursday morning for the last I guess thirty years speaker on a topic of interest, and it's you speak for fifteen minutes. And then they throw questions out you really nice environment. And this was all about big. And what was your message? What was your message to these congress people will, you know, my message. My message is that these organizations have become invasive species, they are they are sit lords who started up nine and then turn to the dark side of the force. And unless we arm we arm you are representatives with inside data and the backbone wherewithal to break up what have become invasive species that we're going to continue to kill innovation our country. Our tax base is gonna run the middle class is going to continue to experience lot wages that that the government is here to serve the the governed not the governor's these companies have become the governor's floor. That's really interesting. I just had Shoshana Zubov on talking about this. He has a book called surveillance capitalism where she has exactly the same messages. The the hijacking of everything by these companies, and and for more dire even more dire predictions from her in terms of what's going to happen. Do they hear you do they do they because you know, I've been banging this drum for a while too. So do they hear hear your messaging cursor, get your take my my take? And I'm new to Washington I've been here ten times in my life and five times in the last month. They hear you the greed they nod their head, and they are totally befuddled as to what to do about it. Because I, you know, the scary thing is I think they're outgunned wonder outcome by complexity. These are difficult problems understand only seven percent of our electorate has a background technology engineering. So they're just sort of their intimidated by the subject material into there's Amazon as eighty eight full time lobbyists in DC, and you've written about this the one area of each of the big tech organization spending that's increase faster than anything. Increase faster than our D. Hiring is lobbying. So when the the legislation that banned sex trafficking and puts platforms like back page out of business and gets a ninety seven to one vote in favour, you think well, that's bipartisan action work. There's now an organization challenging that. And trying to take it to the supreme court worried that any any in habituation of what could do could be bad for them. And that organization is a front for Google. So even when it comes to sex trafficking. Google is willing to spend a lot of money to fight it. It's the points. It's really astonishing..

I did want to mention this a couple of things before we get to that. I mentioned there's a study that I found and in fact DA it's the Aspen institute sports in society program, they released a study earlier today in regards to football. And it said flag football should be the national standard for competition until high school age now specifically the institute has recommended for thanks USA football. Pop Warner all other youth football organizations shift to a standardized flag football competition before the age of fourteen those same organizations begin. Teaching fundamental blocking tackling hitting techniques by age twelve high school and colleges. Minimized non game. Tackling player collisions by adopting dark mouth star Dartmouth style instruction in practice standards. And all that means is limiting contact hidden dummies hidden dummies the football industry, including high schools and colleges expand their flag football offerings. Now, here's a couple of things. I think you might find interesting, California, Illinois, New York and Maryland all have proposed age restrictions. No bills have been passed. And it doesn't look like any will anytime soon. The institute began digging down on this subject with a series of discussions beginning in January. And I think I've actually brought this up on the show before. But I don't think you know, in this study. It cites research that shows the number of players in high school football throughout the country. Has shrink for the fourth consecutive year in two thousand seventeen to what one one point seven million from what what what was it four years ago? I'm going to get to that participation among children ages six through twelve have fallen more than seventeen percent over the last five years, the U mass Law Center for public opinion research in two thousand sixteen found that seventy eight percent of adults do not think it is appropriate for children to participate in tackle football before the age of fourteen there are torn teens typically what high freshmen in highschool freshmen in highschool. Yep. Restaurant eighth grade grade. Yeah. There are ten thousand fewer students playing football in the state of California alone. Yeah. Since two thousand and but we don't have a JV team you go from freshman football varsity. That's terrible. I was a I was a sophomore playing varsity. And I was scared scared because those are big guys that's a big difference in to expect just the average football player to go out there. That's why these high school teams are just getting beat to my high school team was playing the I think they all sixty sixty three to four some random score like that. Or something about present day your. Yeah. And it's depressing. These teams just beat like the all the talent is being drawn to like, you know, four or five schools in California. Four or five million drastic? Okay. To schools a conference and the other ten are terrible. Terrible. Here's here's the question. And I'm glad you bring something like that. Because you know, I understand the impetus behind, you know, these studies and the want to and the need to see change for a lot of parents in some coaches because let's be honest. Let's not be ignorant here. You know, there are coaches and programs at the college level major d one college football that have decreased the amount of contact that they have in their practices. You know, then there are some like, you know, who was it the Larry Larry fedora, you know, a couple of weeks back. Just sir football's under attack, you know, this is crap. You know, I don't agree with this, blah, blah, blah that whole thing. But went when you start as DA do you start this? It's never go. When you start this rather, it's not going to be perfect. Because here's even a better question. The a better question than when. Who let me give you a story, and example. Okay. So let's say you owned a gas station and everyone. Over the age of thirty that comes your gas station. Or that's driving a car it needs gas. But all these sixteen year olds. They don't drive gas cars, and then it's like sixteen seventeen years. What would you do as a business? You have to figure out how to get that customer. Right. Like 'cause you eventually say, oh, these sixteen year olds are going to be thirty year olds in fourteen years, and I'm gonna have no customers. Right. That's the same thing. That's going on in the NFL. It drives me nuts that the Houston Texans. The Los Angeles Rams at the New York. Jan giants aren't doing something about this. These teams need to make sure that youth athletes are playing there's not going to be any talent the NFL. There's it's gonna be it's gonna be me five schools. The Alabama's the other school because it's gonna hurt college first. And then I'll hurt the NFL. There's going to be talking about power five the why be power three. And then you're just gonna watch these same kids kinda go all the way through the development process that they need kids to play. And not is not the problem that is when the answers wench is two years ago and the real question is who it's on the NFL. Fell in the NFL teams to make sure that youth kids are playing football that the that. That's the answer. There's so many of the questions that I have like one year. Playing flag football will we're talking about. Where does the development come from offensive lineman deep? That's five footballs. Not the answer. So. Yeah. I mean, there's just not not a place for that. We said what have you strength the field? Like, what if you take the major collisions out of it? And you force like, you know, you start off playing like, I don't know seven on seven football, and they're not allowed to be more than ten yards apart. And they're hitting each other. Like this not as hard yet. Well, isn't that arena football? I mean. Yeah. So they wanna. Arena. But you can't have long motions and stuff. Like, why do they need to be on one hundred yard you ever? See a little kid running for the end zone. Takes them like forty five minutes. Way too long. Well, yeah. Off on a seven foot basketball hoop? I can't disagree with you there. You know, here's my ignorance, I've never once been to a peewee league football game. There's no way they play on a regulation football field. Correct. Oh, yeah. They do. Really? Oh, yeah. They do. Oh my God. That's gonna be outraged is almost peewee seven mean. No. It's not. Okay. I'm sorry. I played on one hundred yard field normal size over you. Starting in third grade. We played high school football field third. Fourth fifth is peewee. Gosh. Yeah. Fifth third graders. Yeah. I just never, you know, we have we have little football players. Taking a knee when you get to the twenty and then and then finished here's a thing. And then I want to move on. Because you told your story about your high school situation, your present your your present day, you know, kind of getting pounded because you don't have the talent. If you started this initiative DA where you did not allow contact football where it was only flag football up until the age of fourteen when you're a freshman in high school when you start this you start that this year. Then you're going to have guys that are going into freshman year that are going to be possibly playing with and against seasoned guys who were bigger faster stronger that our seniors and juniors and sophomores, and there's just going to be an imbalance. There is going to be a curve at some point. And it's going to last at least three years. You know what I'm saying? There. I didn't play football to high school. I didn't either I didn't feel like there was a curve that I could never get over. I played freshman, and then I played JV and in my junior and senior year, well sophomore junior and senior year. I played varsity. You know, what I mean, look my high school now the one that we feed into north shore here they have a freshman team. They have a freshman eighteen team a b team a c team don't. Yes, they do a freshman c team DA who do they play. You know? Team and BFE. I don't know. Yeah. They have c team. That's unbeliev team. Eight. Everyone comes out professional football. That's a lotta guys. How many guys it's all the dudes from the two feeder schools? You know, what they each each freshman team has what forty guys? So it's difficult because I don't know how many like in eighth grade program we have like seventy eighty kids. And I said eighth grade eighth grade we have seventy or eighty kids seventh grade program we have around eighty kids in the program. You have eighty kids on your program. Holy smokes. DARE numbers are down. We used to have one hundred hundred team. I think has thirty three players thirty three guys. Yeah. We get a lot. We get a lot. And the most of those kids that finished eighth grade program. Go to the high school may have some kids at drop out because they're buddies don't launcher Indo pathetically matter. You got fifty five year, you're fine. You can you can move on. And that's a class that means you have one hundred ten June Caesar's, and you can go grab from soft. Yeah. It's pretty crazy. I mean, Texas doesn't have to worry for a while. Then, hey, let me get to a couple of how to because we did have some guys at in. I one from John and Cyprus let people know that this is for them. And so a lot of text in whatever you wanna how to we always want to have how To's. Yeah. I tweeted it out. We got some last segment, and I'm trying to get somebody. You're right. Eating how To's you can tweet at us at David. Emerson eighty nine at Schaumburg Johnny at Joe George or text in seven one three five seven two four six ten John in Cyprus texting. How can I explain to my daughter that I don't really want her playing boy sports she really wants to play football. But not only am I worried about safety, but the environment too. All right. Do you have any girls on your team? No. And I'm trying to think like three three or four years ago. We had a girl that did play eighth grade football. I want to say, and that was no problem. I think she was actually the kicker set coach seventh grade eighth grade. But I think like what she did. She changed in the girls locker room and everybody else out there. So she had her own space that our own thing. And it was cool. I don't remember any problems. Really? Oh, no. I do remember. She was she was good. She was a corner. She was a corner. She wasn't a kicker and she ended up getting in an altercation. I think combined game and that was the end of her eighth grade football career. But yes, so how do you explain to we had? We had. Okay. How do you explain it? I think I have a daughter. And so I can't say I've thought about this. But I definitely thought, you know, she's probably going to like sports we have a couple of balls that roll around the house and like, bouncy one. So as I'm like panning our football night, y'all gonna do this icebox we're gonna make it to the big league. But I would say to my daughter. Playing sports is. Is honest, and as Roger you can really get into all and a lot of a lot of ways in that. Like people are out there, especially in football hitting each other. It's very primal. And so you should expect a lot of that behavior. Not just on the field. But that type of primal like, yes, this is how I feel about the situation the immediacy the trust and honesty. I always find the athletes is a lot different than the normal normal human. So that's something you have to be a aware of. And so here's how football players feel if you are a woman in you're good get out there and play because there's nothing more accepting than being able to ball and football knows no race creed color or sex. If you want to go out there and balled and go ball, and that's good. Now, if you're not very good usually you will get treated like so so that's that's something you have to wear. Right. I if you're going out there and not very good. You'll get treated like so, and it's probably doesn't look good for you. Or the situation. I real quick. I would encourage it. You know, if that's what she really wants to do. But you have to be on the same page as the coaches and that program this this is not as to how to tell her that. She doesn't want her to do it though. Yeah. But I mean, all right. Yeah. You're right. How about this? We're gonna go to the break. We're gonna come back, and we'll debate this a little more. And then we'll get right into ingredients favorite segment. I heard Joe Georgia sous chef backed out. He's been Sergio. We separate switch weeks. I'm gonna make you regret backing out today, by the way back down. It's going to be good ingredients. I have some. Well, I'm not going to give away any of the ingredients right now. But we'll be back sports radio six and the average sports show. I'm David.

The neighborhood taking walks and I, think he'd been very very. Private over the years and when he, decided to open up he just wanted. To open up, everything he, also said you know I'm famous for being. Brutally honest with people I want you to be brutally, honest in this book Steve Jobs knew he would die relatively soon when he asked Isaacson. To write his biography so as much as the writer would have a chance to, shape the subjects legacy the subject was being proactive in. Shaping his, own legacy You know the two sets of reactions people have never. Been in business or never been, entrepreneurs and generally older people. Their first reaction especially the first half, of the book is boy he was. Kind of a, jerk and, he was hard to deal with I didn't. Know he had such a prickly personality younger entrepreneurs people, have been in business people who know the things work their reaction is totally different which. Is wow this guy was a genius not that he was a jerk but that, he drove people to do things they thought were impossible I asked Isaacson, how strategic jobs. Was in his jerk that, is could he control himself to, the point where he could turn off the jerk Quinny needed to Jug.

"I'm ABC contributor and a very heaven, happy Aspen institute attendee. So look, obviously there has been enormous controversy over the president's handling of the Helsinki summit and. Especially those comments right off the bat, which questioned the US intelligence findings because Vladimir Putin had denied them that stunned a lot of people. What was your take when you heard the president's comments in Helsinki? Well, let's take apart the Helsinki criticism if we can. The first one seems to be that he had a private meeting with another foreign head of state. And the supposition there is that other foreign head of state is so evil that how possibly could one man have a private meeting with them even if he is the president. I think the tone to that criticism is that some people have decided they distrust and dislike President Trump so much that they don't trust him to carry out a national security matters on their behalf. The issue there that there was no other US officials present for the meeting. Well, I think there's a number of issues. I believe, as I just said, the biggest motivator behind that criticism is distrust in the man, and I can't change that. I don't share that this trust in him, but. Those that this trust him find it very unsettling to think that he's got their future security matters in in their hands in a private meeting where they can't hear oversee everything that he does and says, you're right though. There's another few layers of criticism that I've seen come through. One of them is this fear that the conversation might have been taped, and I think. Then your imagination fills and all the things you might have said and so forth. I think the other fear seems to be an American Fisher wasn't with them. I'm not sure if I understand though the concern, I think, well, both foreign leaders were in the same footing in that situation. Right. I mean, the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats was unaware of what the president and Putin had talked about. Now that does seem to be a problem if you're the chief intelligence officer of the United States, and you don't know what the president is communicating to an agreeing with the president of Russia. Well, fair enough as a question, but that's not a function of whether they were we're not alone. That's a function of what the president has communicated back to a staff and how quickly he is done. So again, it's about trust in the president's judgment. If he felt things were told to him that he needed to share immediately with his senior intelligence advisor. That's his judgment call. I suspect that the president intends to give Dan Coats. And secretary Madison. Everyone else of importance on the security component side of his cabinet, a full rundown of that, which he discussed with Ladimir Putin. As soon as he has that opportunity. I think what we've just seen as an insight into the timing and the style of leadership of this president, he hasn't commanded all of his cabinet is side. The moment the meeting ended to brief them. I suspect for instance that Mike Pompeo does know what was discussed. He was there with him and sitting next to them as they flew back home, there was an opportunity to debrief. So I think Dan just got put in the middle of a little bit of a firestorm for for being away from the president for the days interceding. So if you had been in your previous job is homeland security adviser, and you knew that the president was planning to meet with with Putin alone. You would have been fine with that..
