The Planner: Shane Corbin

"Shane Corbin is the city manager of Atlantic beach which has a pretty small population but really big plants and you about lead for buildings and I had never heard of lead for cities last year. The tiny beach town took to giant steps toward adapting to climate change. Enchaine played a pivotal role woman. This is the adapt podcast. I'm Brendan rivers adverse reporter at W. J. C.. T. News Jacksonville. Florida adapt is our online magazine about what people in our region are doing too apt to sea level rise and climate change in this podcast. We'll hear from some of them about what they've learned. And what motivates them as our region grapples with big issues. Aw Shane Corbin. Orban has been involved in city planning for about two decades. I started as an entry level. Land Use planner in Hardin County Kentucky and from there I moved to Louisville Metro and I wasn't environmental planner for the city of Louisville for five years while he was in Louisville his supervisor decided to put together the city's first climate action report and we hired an engineering firm to create a greenhouse gas inventory for the entire city formed partnership between in the city the local school system and the college being the three biggest employers in the city knowing if we could get those partnerships together they could could influence change from top down and actually influenced the culture of sustainability throughout the community so really got immersed and the topic of climate change and chemistry of climate change and the science behind it and after I left that position Still carried that knowledge with me and as a as a land use planner I would do things like implement tree planting projects and look at impacts of development velopment. He had stints in Indiana and Savannah before he landed in Atlantic beach shortly before. Shane arrived in two thousand seventeen. There was a a huge power shift in Atlantic beach. Three women with no public office experience between them unseated. Three incumbents all men under Mayor Ellen Glasser and the city the commission now made up of four women Atlantic beach has been leading the charge in Duval County when it comes to addressing the threats posed by climate change and twenty nineteen mayor Glasser in the the city commission unanimously supported a resolution acknowledging the threat of sea level rise and flooding and the need for the research and funding resiliency efforts. Here's glasser reading from the bill. No reports that Florida's sea level rise of three inches since two thousand has increased flooding in the state by three hundred percent. Uh No reports that nearby naval station mayport has experienced sea level rise at one third inch per year a pace that has accelerated it since the nineteen nineties rising sea levels amplify the threat and magnitude of storm surge in coastal areas meaning the impact and power of hurricanes will only increase endangering even more coastal property and infrastructure. Shane is doing a lot of the work on the ground. We did analysis assist for Sunday flooding. and which is basically just like a bathtub. Model poor additional water into the best of it rises them so we looked at that for twenty five fifty and one hundred years out. In addition to that we did storm surge. Modelling on top of the best model to this show if you put that much water in the bathtub and then we have a significant storm on top of that. What does that mean so we created these various areas for where where would additional water go and then we did a spatial analysis using G.? I S. looking at property values infrastructure such as lift stations for our utilities schools. The police station City Hall evacuation routes. So we've tallied some potential property damage. The results of this vulnerability assessment chains talking about are very visual charts graphs and lots of maps with colorful layers. I basically all these visual tools illustrate the obvious. Atlantic beach is extremely vulnerable to sea level rise and flooding. Perhaps the most striking map looks at future storm surge urge during one hundred year storms which scientists say are becoming more and more frequent due to climate change during one of those storms at the turn of the century under an assumed six and a half feet of sea level arise. Noah's intermediate high estimate for the region. Nearly all of Atlantic beach will be underwater. Shane says now that the city has all this data. They're applying for another state. It grants to the city can work on what's called an adaptation plan bringing in engineers having community meetings and then we'll start to formulate some long range solutions or adaptation strategies to what those impacts mean. How much is it going to cost do this stuff? What is the the public's public's appetite for spending certain dollar amounts on certain projects the city's assuming the ocean will rise at least one foot by the year twenty forty four two and a half fi total within twenty five years of that and more than sixty by the end of the century so that data set is actually right almost in the middle of all the data sets and that's what the Navy used do their analysis at the mayport naval station? So you've got some. I don't remember which ones predicting really really really high and we didn't do that because we don't want to be unrealistic but we also didn't want to go to low what kinds of policies and standards are currently in place to protect homes homes and infrastructure. The State of Florida has now required that we'd put some language in our plan about peril of flood in the term sea level. Arise to show up there a couple times about trying to limit new development in areas that would be in peril flood we did update our COMP. Don't plan last year and we did include that language in there and that was really the state's first attempt to start to slide sea level rise into local regulations and actually force literally force communities to start to talk about it. And you know whether you like it or not when you're caught plan goes out of date and five years. You're not we're not GonNa let you do any zone. Changes is the way it it works. They freeze your comp plan for example. Let's say you're in Daytona and you've got an area that is looking to rezone zone from residential to commercial. It's a sizable piece of property. And the city's complaint is frozen so the planners go to task and they go to update their co plan and Lo and behold state has new requirements in. There that you have to discuss CEELO rise doesn't say that you have to deny development for or any reason or because of C. level rise but it forces that language into the official DNA of the community and they have to take it to the city council and talk about it on record in a public meeting that they are now inserting consideration of Ceelo rise into the community. So that's what the the first thing state did. And so that started to get into the conversation going round round state and then they follow that up with the resilient coastline coastline grants. That's the Atlantic beach recently applied for to create Neta patient plan. Were Pretty careful in the vulnerability analysis not to discuss carbon or climate change. Or why it's not about. Why isn't any of this happening? It's just here's the data we don't want to get that wrapped up in a debate about well. We shouldn't be thinking about this because the scientists fake or anything like that. We're just looking at. How much sea level rise have we seen in the past so we know that it's happening and then what are the predictions that we're getting from these scientific agencies plug that data into a model and that gives us our vulnerability analysis so we stayed completely clear of greenhouse gases or anything like that lead on the other hand looks at not only greenhouse gases but it looks really holistically at energy water waste transportation in the human experience elite stands for leadership leadership in energy and environmental design? It's a certification program from the US Green Building Council buildings have huge environmental impact using more than seventy percent of electronically and causing forty percent of all missions and lead was originally designed to improve the sustainability of their design construction and operation but the Green Building Council recently decided to take that same concept and scaled up with lead for cities and communities leaders in Atlantic beach decided to start pursuing lied about two years ago which I I thought was pretty interesting because I knew about lead for buildings and I'd never heard of League for cities with most people in that. Yeah so I thought well yeah I think I understand what that means but do they understand. Shane was one of a handful of city staff work on the certification process. But they got help from the Green Building Council and then college student named Sean La Hob will hear from an another episode of this podcast and from the city's Environmental Stewardship Committee Environmental Stewardship Stewardship Committee is a committee. Specific to the city of Atlantic beach was largely born out of concern for urban. Can't be but they were given a charge much broader to look at what happens in our parks other environmental issues to get lead certified fight. Cities are judged on everything from energy and water use to the amount of waste they generate the efficiency of transportation and the quality of life for the people who live there and then they to give you a composite score on those topics and in order to get there. We had to do a lot of data mining. So we were going to we we were looking. At Census Data Crime Data Transportation Data. We looked at our utility bills for all of our residents. We were able to get general numbers of water. Use per resident. We also did that for energy and we looked at. What is the tonnage of waste is that we're sending to the landfill versus? What is the tonnage of the weight that we're we're diverting from landfills and putting into recycling so it took us a while to mine all that data good evening commissioners as you know as one of your priorities that we became a lead certified city? Shane announced Atlantic. Beach is Leed certification at a city commission mission meeting last fall we did recently achieved that status as lead first lead certified city with the Silver Score. There are four lead certification and levels from highest score to lois their platinum gold silver and certified as part of the certification process Atlantic beach had to submit a roadmap which basically outlines its potential strategies to improve the city score. There are a lot of strategies that other cities had done that. We didn't think were practical. Like we're going to have zero waste stream by at twenty thirty five. How do we do that? You know but we could make some general targets of least for starters. A lot of things we wanted to do was was education and outreach. We WanNA do education outreach. With the community on sea level rise and the vulnerability of sea level rise. We did get it's recommendations banning styrofoam plastic but What we eventually ended up doing was taking that those ten or fifteen page is is giving those to the Environmental Stewardship Committee and saying talk about all these and rank these and see which ones you think make sense or at least you're passionate about that staff can actually work on so as far as the all this data that you had to collect as part of this process? was there anything that really stuck Out To you are human. Experience score is extremely high which I don't know if you know anything about Atlantic beach but it's pretty nice community. We scored a seventeen eighteen out of twenty three points away from perfect or waste. Numbers are pretty good court six out of eight so go a little bit of work to do their energy use score as sixteen thirty three. That's probably where we could make the most improvement. I'm guessing that's category that that would include your your greenhouse gas emissions. Yes that would be. And that's probably the most tricky one to try to improve that could involve behavior change. How do you convince people to ride their bike to the grocery instead of drive? That's it's pretty difficult. How do you convince people to spend a little bit of extra money on solar and retrofit for higher efficiency appliances and thanks for that can be pretty tricky to do one thing in landing beaches considering he says is allowing Special Financing Program for home improvements? It's called the property assessed clean energy or pace program. It allows homeowners to pay off the cost of adding solar panels as part of their property. Tax Bill over time. The hope is that we'll be l.. To offer that as an option to folks not that we would mandate and say everyone has to put solar on their house or anything like that. But we're we're in a unique position. But we're we're having a lot of rebuilds in remodels in the city of Atlantic beach and we could offer that program as an option to people when they come in and they're doing their building projects and they can essentially wrap that into their overall project and then disperse at cost over time and then we could potentially spread solar throughout the community has the city set emission reduction goals. No Man is that. Do you think that's going to be part of the process. `assises pinpoint could be. But we have not done this after the break what Atlantic beach could do to improve its lead score. And what chain says just isn't possible things for you're listening to the adapt podcast. I'm adapt editor Jessica. Palumbo if you like learning about how Florida's responding to sea level rise and the other effects of climate change. I invite right you to sign up at adapt Florida dot work. That way you'll be the first to know when the next edition of adapt publishes or when there's a community event where you can come discuss these issues with experts. Plans for both of those are in the works right now. You can sign up in under five minutes at adapt Florida Dot Org. The adopt podcast is a production of. WJ C. T. public media financial support for adopt comes from our readers and listeners with additional support from the Arthur Providing Davis foundations and the twenty forty foundation more at adapt Florida dot org now back to shame. She'd says the lead certification process cost just over a dollar for each Atlantic beach resident pretty big commitment from a from a small city. Not necessarily really Depends on who you ask there. There are some folks out there that don't believe any of the a debate on or of environmental issues and so any initiative. That a city does they're going to criticize. It is and try to discredit. But I wouldn't say that any of our efforts have consumed absorbent amount of staff time mm-hmm or volunteer time committee time and one of the things that we're trying to do early on here to see if we can't implement strategies that ended up not only reducing our environmental footprint but save US money in the long run and so we're looking at some of those things right now doesn't make sense to retrofit city hall with solar and as far as financially I think the total certification process. I WanNa say we spent spent around fifteen thousand dollars on that so it wasn't a huge amount. There are people that will argue that that was not money. Well spent a staff. We don't get into that debate We follow the charge charges that were given by the elected officials and let them argue argue about that. You're not going back to that road map. What has been done? So far policy-wise as this continued effort to pursue. We'd we've done quite a bit of outreach. On the vulnerability assessment did quite a bit of research on banning Styrofoam Styrofoam and plastic. And currently. That sounds like that's probably a non starter here in the state of Florida because of State Law got AH preempts us from doing anything. We're working on plant Palette for native landscaping. We're looking at incorporating sustainability into numerous Henrik planning with green infrastructure swell as Some innovative zoning and land use we drafted a complete streets policy. What is the complete streets Palffy essentially says anytime we repave street or do any significant work on a street? We're going to look at it from every every user's point of view and see if we can retrofit that street to accommodate all users should not just cars but do we have an opportunity to put in bike lanes lanes. Can we widen the sidewalk. We need to put it in street trees and furniture so again. It's not going to say that every time we repave a neighborhood street. We're GONNA put Kim bike lanes but we're going to look at it and if we can't put them in or if it doesn't make sense for us to put him in then we'll document that and we'll say why. What are some of the priorities going forward providing opportunities for people to reduce their way stream? So we're looking at doing some pilot. Let composting programs post at City Hall and possibly at some of our parks with a limited number of residents to participate in to see we wanted to do a large scale composting program for people to participate in. How'd it work? Is it reasonable or would it be would be a nightmare. We don't yeah so it's really easy to sit around the table and say you know. We need a compost all our food scraps in the city of Atlantic beach. Well how do you get that food from you know you. You scrape it into a bucket at your table. Where does it sit? How long does it sit there who comes and picks it up up? What sort of health concerns or bacteria gets transferred? What sort of rodents get attracted? How do you the deal with all that? So when you're tackling these issues it's very easy to say we're going to do something by X. percent or you know Oh this is what we need to do but when you have limited resources and you're dealing with people tardy to get anyone on the same page do the same thing perfectly right all the time so for some of these things will try some small pilot programs if hey there hit that will bigger again. That's Sheen Corbin. Atlantic beach city manager to see some of the results of the city's vulnerability assessment and how it scored in various lead certification categories look at his QNA on adapt Florida dot.

"Thank you for joining me today. I'm power off by May escape and go to promo code Maxwell 20 and you can get some money off on this thing is one of those great devices that you can use and also awaken 180 off if you want to lose weight in this pandemic. This is where you reach out awaken 180 Diane in Charlotte. Yep with the school there loves you where you live in the troll song South Charlotte. I'm in Longview down in The Ballantyne railroad area. Oh, yeah. I used to live over near South Park. That was my man. And I witnessed them. All right up north a little bit and you know right away. I'm going to take you back after things. I saw about you. I just loved that man. There was some stuff about South Carolina that off. Looked at, you know, Atlantic Beach. Yeah, of course, man. I went there and see what the way older than you. I went there in 1963 and I was off the beach and the beach had a fence that went from the beach into the water as long as the football field to keep the blacks from the whites Atlantic Beach Club still like that today to oh they call it the Black Pearl. Come on. Seriously. Yeah Atlantic Beach that Myrtle Beach has its hazards issues. There's a way to segregate and I still go a lot down to Garden City. But yeah, it's it's it's a lot down there all the things which I think is the craziest the fact that my my son was the first black lifeguard in Myrtle Beach and as soon as he's yeah, he's he's maybe now this is about maybe about 33 now dead. And these looking like Mom, I want to take a picture with the backlight guard Aquaman. I know man, but that's that's not even a you know, that's my generation right there that says Hi Well, let me get to this and let you get on and know you've been so busy, but you know, if so, so glad to have you require sellers here with me Cedric Maxwell on my podcast. Do my masters are very easy. If you drink it snowball question of them all read about your profile the rock of your family can't be you but she has to be your wife and your kids. I just love the profile and looking to where you look so happy. Yeah, so she is and we have a fifteen-year-old who is in tenth grade. She just started tenth grade this year had to think about that haven't missed a day of First first day of school since she's been in kindergarten so we wage We had that they're actually going to school in person. So a little uneasy about that, but we'll we'll pray about that. And then I have nineteen month old twins say that was incredible to see that that you had twin daughters. No one daughter one son and one daughter one son. Oh, okay windows, but just for to have kids like that at your age and now it depend emack & and race Motocross. How are you teaching your kids and still be a different between the young ones and the older ones, you know, you just different level. Well, I hope so. I mean the the prayer is that you know, the what my fifteen-year-old is living through right now with the twins won't necessarily have to live through hopefully in that, you know, 14 and 1/2 year Gap 13 and 1/2 year. Gap will be able to create some long-standing cultural political and social changes that my twins may have an easier time than my fifteen-year-old does cuz she's dealing with issues of race, even at as a teenager right now and interacting. I mean they watch you gotta understand that song. When you are if you are a young young person a teen in particular, then you you've grown up knowing that your president is Donald Trump knowing the overlay of race in this country living through Thursday. Its failed completely being able to understand George Floyd and Brianna Taylor. And so I hope that my my younger children will be able to escape some of those traumas reading your book managing country. What were you trying to tell the Nation about your process? How you live? So, I mean it was a few things. I think that you know, being a child of the movement growing up with my father and snake growing up around Marion Barry and Julian Bond learning the lessons of Ella Baker and Faith et cetera. You know, it's just everything that I see politically socially culturally I look at through the lens of the movement. I'm a child of the movement and you know, the best example is why a lot of people Jean-Louis from 1986 Ford since his time and Congress, you know, I remember John Lewis learning of John Lewis in Sixty one two, and three when he was, you know, chair a snake and that's just my my my perspective in the book. What I attempted to do was give black folks who read this a sense of Pride understand that even with the traumas that we all have we can make it through and and white folks who read this a sense of understanding and it's amazing. You never want to book to come out during the middle of a pandemic, but it came out right on time. I'm when people were searching for these resources one of the things that I heard you say and I thought it was brilliant and but I went to explain it to to my listeners you talked about it's good that I guess the whole society. They want to change things about no more. We're not answer Mom. It's not going to be and what not going to have black beans rice anymore. And he said that's a you know, a bandaid on it, but you you went on to explain that, you know, you have to do more just not something supervision off. There was really good. Yeah, so, you know why people want to change on to Mama or change the the picture of Uncle been, you know for me, I've always thought I never wanted us to make the man who sells yellow paint Rich meaning that nowadays, you know, black lives matters in the middle of the street, but what does that what does that really? Do? You know you have companies that are birth Away, a million or two million dollars and that's good. I mean we going to take the money don't get me wrong. But what is your what is your c-suite look like? What do your executive look like? How are you elevating of color and women in your business. Are you paying them what they're worth. Do you have just a vice-president of diversity or do you have somebody there that you actually listen to and so you have all of these you have a lot of performance performative justice, but I I want people to remember that Justice is a verb and we have to begin to change culture and just symbolic changes and enough. So my whole thing is people ask me is this time different and I'm like, it feels that way but, you know the age-old political saying you have to trust but verify I I want you to finish this line for me black lives matter. What are you going to do about voting... So, I mean that's a good question. I mean the. How about like your life depends on it? There was once a famous man in this country who said what do you have to lose? All right, and I think that we're seeing we have to lose whether or not it's the pin dem8 which is taking away any semblance of wealth we've had in our communities or the fact of you know, black and brown people are dying at higher rates whether or not it's just a fractured systems of Oppression that we have in this country. We have a lot to lose and so my... Is vote like your life depends on it because it really does 2020 has been the craziest year not only for for society but also for sports and you know Kobe Bryant passes away this year. I thought I thought that was going to be the roughest moment of the year. I yes and and what you look at it and it just seems like it's just everything is just kind of catapulted and you know with Donald Trump, you know, George Floyd, you know, eight minutes and 46 seconds will go down like forever. We will think about that like forever like nine-eleven. Those will be numbers off in your perspective. How do you really look at this year? I mean, it's just been so crazy. I'm not I'm not going to I refuse to walk down this path with you cuz this year ain't over yet. So I don't know what is going to be other side. You should have me out here saying it ain't going to get no no words, but then it can I just saw a note this morning from NASA was true story the day before the election November 2nd an asteroid is supposed to barely wage. The Earth so I got that means early vote. That's what that means to be. So, I don't know man, you know, I remember I remember when Kobe passed away. I was in the the airport. I'm going to chat group with three other three other just all four of the awesome individuals and he sent me a link from TMZ. I just didn't want to believe it and I was flying to DC to do to do a special at night on on CNN and we ended up canceling the special because of the name of the news around Kobe Bryant and just to watch just to watch the strength of of his wife over this time, you know, losing not just Kobe boujee, but watching former strength is just been something that you know, I think I would probably fall apart but just watching her strength has been something that's admirable and we miss Kobe especially during this time. I think we're about the ROM. Or 8:24, which is going to be a national a Citywide holiday in LA and you know arguably the office probably not arguably the second second best shooting guard to ever play the game top ten player to ever play the game. Well, you know and this one of the things where I thought was something else or a little birdie tells me that you know, you are a big football fan you talk about how you want to do tailgating with that. I think it was at the Gamecocks for South Carolina home. You got to be missing that so yeah. I mean, I think you know when people ask, you know do elections matter, right? Yeah, I mean, we're not even having the SEC apparently is going to try to play this year. But you know, I love that's what I do on Saturdays. I love watching my Gamecocks play the last three years has been dead has been a lot of a lot of tragedy on Saturdays will muschamp but yeah, you know tailgating enjoying going in here in ninety thousand people we won't even be able to be in the stands this year. You won't even be able to tailgate like that long. So it's just a it's a tough tough go. But yeah, I love I'm a huge sports fan basketball baseball football soccer watch it all I'm glad you open that up. And if that's the case, I always ask some of my guests a great question and and I'd love to put it to you and you can't be wrong with this. Give me your Mountain Rushmore Sports. Of sports or horse. This is Lourdes your mouth. This is for car sellers Mount Rushmore of sports and your backyard your building your building that Mount Rushmore and you got lots well with four slots. With four slots. You gotta have Muhammad Ali. I think that's a universal slot. I think that. You know. Jackie Robinson or Hank Aaron Okay, you got you got more of that was one of the other can't be Jackie Robinson or you can have both of them but then you know, I do I do I do Hank Aaron. I love I love the work that Hank still doing today. I know I know Jackie's daughter really well, so she probably mad at me about that. But let's see and then I would say Serena Williams you you put you took one of mine. So that is that's unbelievable. You're the first person that took one of mine. am probably probably pehle. Wow. Wow. I mean I was thinking about I was thinking about Jim Brown. He didn't play long enough. I was thinking about Jerry Rice but Jake is did that Church's Chicken commercial with the fried chicken to the helmet. So he ain't nobody's Mountain nothing no more. So yeah pehle Serena Hank Aaron off and and I like and and so so with that and again you can't be wrong. So you laugh out Michael Jordan and you left out Tiger Woods, right? So tiger tiger cards right number five. If we had another slot tiger would be on it. Michael. Jordan is not even the greatest basketball player ever played again. Wow. Okay. Give me your best basketball player to play a game. So my my to actually put Jordan at maybe two maybe three but LeBron James and Kareem are are right there off. Wow, you know that that's that's that's kind of new-age. You're you're really new age because so many people right now are going to be throwing shit at my at your in my camera because they always like oh my God, this is what I really believe about LeBron and I think that heat to a point. This is the point I'm making about him. He's to go to me because of what he's done social work out people that people of color he's taken on our whole line that Michael Jordan didn't take on now. It wasn't Microsoft fault, but he still didn't take it on and LeBron has taken on faith in Fremantle possible. Yeah. So Mike is actually doing that now like his post-playing career. He's actually stepping up to the plate in and around the Charlotte area doing stuff that people don't even know about but dead. One of the reasons and in people talk about championships. I remind Focus all the time that it's not an individual Sport and y'all can't even I mean you go to the NBA finals with Eric snow and Sasha pavlovic and the junas ilgauskas Andrew good and you know like Booby Gibson. I mean if you drag them to the finals then you know, and you don't win that are you trying to say you can get them in your backyard game? You know, you can't play them. I don't know the jurors. Maybe he was an All-Star but that that was about that was about it. I mean, but you know might play with you know, people forget son who coaches one of the greatest players in the world at the time Scotty Pippin, of course, one of the hundred greatest to play the game. So I mean, he he went Dennis Rodman, you know, how long so you weren't playing with slouches, but I do think LeBron LeBron is the only athlete To ever have that level of expectation from childhood forward and not only meet that level of expectation but exceeded, you know from from the you know, the Sports Illustrated covers to the you know, the the the chosen one all of these things and he's met that expectation if he wins if he wins a NBA Championship in La regardless of whether or not it's in the bubble or on the moon wage. I think that debates pretty much open. I'll ask you a question. I know nobody's really asked you in a while. Give me a positive that Donald Trump has done. I think he's taken some admirable steps around criminal justice, you know, I think that he probably regrets that now and had to be pulled there. But nonetheless I think he's taken some admirable steps with the first steps acted. It truly was a first step that it was nowhere near big enough for bold enough. But you know, I I think that you know, I look forward to you know about an inheritance being able to you know, complete that task If he if they if we gotta go ten yards to score he took us, you know, two and half and so we gotta we have what we still have a group of players to pull out and I think that Biden Harris will get us there, little compliments work right now just as people well I'm speaking it doesn't make to you know to us off into little girls to your daughter with this so I mean so much I mean cuz you know, there's so much you can see in, you know, her mom is Indian her dad was Jamaican, you know images She's the daughter of immigrants. She grew up to a single mom cuz her dad left early age. So you can if you grew up with a single mom, you can feel that she's a mother herself. Now. She's a black woman, you know, so there's so much history. She went to an HBCU. She's a part of a denial divine nine sorority as you hear my kids in the background. Don't worry about it. It's working from home. And so there's so much of there's so much of America that we can see in her and she's Bowl. She's compassionate. I just, you know, spoke to her and Dougie this Thursday morning wishing them a happy anniversary and she's tenacious and she's going to be somebody who is extremely tough compassionate and at the end of the day sees us and said, you know, I know that she's going to work extremely hard as vice president to not only do write about people of color but do right by everyone in this country. What is what is Mike Pence p You're right. Now he has to do a debate right now. I guess, Harris weapons specialist the problem that he has a problem that he's that he's going to have is that he's dead. You know, they Donald Trump and Mike Pence do not interact. Well with women of power... Particularly women of power or who are of color. Why is the why is the word nasty always come along with that? Cuz the limited vocabulary. I mean he does how they got I mean whether or not is April Ryan or your home or nikole hannah-jones. I mean, they don't have a they don't have a vocabulary. They don't know and so he he they are spending more time right now. I can guarantee. Well, they're preparing for his speech a week. But after his speech they will spend more time preparing for how they even address, or do they call her, do they call them is Harris do they call our Senator Harris? I mean they they are going to spend more time trying to figure out how they suck. Dresser the tone the mannerisms then actually preparing it's going to be a fascinating debate. But I know she's going to be very prepared you've been around for a while and you talk about the movement has this song you ever been so splintered I grew up in the fifties, I grew up when there were segregation and just told you about the situation and I was in the other Beach in South Carolina and all that God. I couldn't believe that there was a fence in the water to separate blacks from whites ever in ever in the time like this that you actually remembered that I remember know but I mean that I know of yeah, I mean, I think that, you know, I wasn't around in nineteen sixty-eight but Tom Brokaw writes the book he calls it boom 1968 because not only did you have the Orangeburg Massacre when my father and 28 others were shot three were killed off South Carolina State, but that was in February and April you had the assassination of King in June you had the assassination of Robert Kennedy and you had soldiers coming home. Especially many black soldiers coming home from Vietnam. I'm still being treated like second-class citizens and so the country was becoming untethered and so we've been here before. I mean, I don't I don't think that this is a new phenomenon. I think that that's the difference between as my father would tell me the difference between Donald Trump and Richard Nixon is you could shame Richard Nixon and Donald Trump has no shame. What I hear from you too is just off the roots of your father death of just such a strong black man that raised you and all the things that you learn from him. And I'm sure you're passing it down to your kid's life. That must be a great legacy. Yeah, I mean but being a parent and being a father as a you know, as you know, is it is a daily thing man. You don't have I'm getting you're right. I guess it's just and just try to try to not mess up let him know that I love them and and try to leave by example cuz I don't know what else I'm doing. So, you know those, you know, being a husband and a father your two most important jobs. That's really believe that wage. And they they also especially the husband part also is another another school full-time at minimum pay I'm going to have to speak to somebody about my labor rights in this man off. I watched you and you're so big on CNN have they ever had you on the other network box office do it anything? No. No. So afraid to have you on cuz I would I would love to see you with Tucker Carlson. I would love to I would love to put you guys in the cage match. I you know Tucker's a little fella I so I signed a scene in in 2015 right before that. I did a lot of MSNBC a lot of Morning Joe a lot of money. It wasn't am Joy at the time. It was oh I can't recall my friend's name on Saturday mornings, but then I got tired of seeing him but during that time. I also refused to do a job. Fox I did like and was friends with Eric bolling's is no longer there but I just Rush Limbaugh, but try to not rush I Bill O'Reilly would try to have me on and I just thought that I mean I I don't have the I don't see the the necessity or or have the bandwidth to go up and have to reaffirm my my boss to be in star from that point with folk and you know try to have somebody yell at me about my existence and about what that mean what it means for me to be black in this country. So I'd I just instead of wasting my time move on where I can have a more more fulfilling conversation that viewers can get more from I've seen you get your tainted with Donald Trump things. You said mad, but also seeing you even get mad or when it was a gentleman you were working with his name was Paris, you know, like there there there were times like you wanted to just grab this guy in, Georgia. The life out of it for Paris Paris, you know in Paris called me today and was like, let's go get a beer I go get a beer repair. So I I just Paris was frustrating because he was dead and I don't mean to sound condescending but he knew better right, you know how you it's people who who kind of who understand the experience but take up positions for something else in some other goal in life, and I'm not sure what that is. And so it was more of a kind of disappointment than a than anger with Paris, you know, we're all friends. Like I was friends with changing any I was transferred Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you know, we go on T and we have it out me and Kaylee used to have have knock-down drag-out some Anderson Cooper where if they would just it would be a panel of eight people and and if she is back up and just let us talk for like eight minutes to through commercial breaks and then we would just go have a go across the street to our Studios with Columbus Circle dead. And right in right right in New York and we would go across the street to this amazing sushi restaurant and have Sushi & Wine with people like Donna brazile. One day Morgan Freeman came over. So it was just it was just a bulb. That's just it was a family thing and you see them now and you just you just pray form the person that you've been most intimidated by Like you meet this person you're going to just your your breath kind of goes back. That hasn't happened to me since I was twelve and I was in the airport. I was headed to LA with my mom maybe 11 and I was in Salt Lake City and I saw Kareem in the airport too. And I walk trying to get autograph and he said no, but that was the only time I was kind of there's not a I don't think there's a man or woman who can I mean I've been interacted with many other times with Barack and Michelle, you know, I you know from any Star Athlete on down of you know seen off my really good friend call him out a little brother Stephon Gilmore plays for the pet. So I've been in a locker room with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. And you know, I've seen Bill Belichick and Page Michael Jordan golfs out here in my neighborhood. I just saw Dell Curry the other day, you know, it just don't I don't think there's a man that can make me kind of a woman that could make me do that at this age at this month. But Corrine was probably the last time that happened to me. I think the the time they happened to me that I remember and I was probably more stock was basically. Oh my goodness. Who is this that Stokely this is one of them. Oh, they're going around. I love it. But their pores I just talked about mine was meeting Bill Clinton actual. I was building Great Lakes and walked down some people and said, you know what? Mr. Clinton, how you doing? My name is Cedric Maxwell. Oh, he's adorable racist. They like TV. I don't know whether Iraq would build I was on the phone with his see now they want to press out a button. See I was on the phone with his with his Deputy Chief of Staff yesterday. I could just sit down. Okay and bills are great guy can see that and Bill and Hillary amazing people. I've seen people like, I don't know how people get to the point where you know, they go to a Michaels. Concert and pass out. My wife got like that one time we were Where are we and we were we were kind of I can't remember where we were we were walking backstage near Beyonce and Jay-Z and you know, oh, I know we were at the DNC and she walked up on Beyonce and Beyonce said I'm watching my husband before that's that's about how long they'll be embarrassed me when I take you out no more man. You know what? I do. Appreciate it. I'm going to let you get back to your kids on the Saturday. But you know before I let you go the most important thing again is for all these young people who are in these lives protesting they got to get out and vote. I said, if you don't get out and vote, you know pumped out you know off for you you gotta you gotta get out and vote and I wish you the best of luck up there. I hope that your your Celtics continue to crush the dreams of the seventy sixes and and move on. If we meet LeBron de you can beat in five.

I don't know how y'all got Kemba Walker, but Kemba Walker is a stone cold killer you just missing something. I don't know maybe a healthy Gordon Hayward or something.

You're going to be familiar with her business. Her name is Brooke Joyner, and she is the owner in operator of Peter brook, chocolate tear here in Atlantic Beach, Florida the beaches community of Jacksonville, Peter brook was founded by Brooks mother Phyllis Geiger in nineteen eighty three and named her new chocolate store after her two children, Brooke and her brother Peter brook keeps. Busy running her store in Atlantic beach in her brother, Peter has a awesome candy store. Jacksonville called sweet Pete's and we look forward to hearing more about the story of Peter brook with. Rook Brooke, welcome to create asleep. Go thank you so much. And thank you for having me. I really appreciate it. And I'm honored to be here. Thank you. You are most welcome. And I thank you. I'm honored as well. I, you know, I tell you we both know my daughter, my daughter, Amy works for you and one thing Amy introduced me to is podcasts in in. I remember one some of our road trips to Tallahassee when she was attending FSU for a couple years. She turned me onto a great program on NPR. And I believe it was it's called listen to how I built this. And essentially it stories of companies that that we know and their story, right? How it got started? Like, I remember Amien. I listen to one about Airbnb we listen to one about whole foods. We listen to one about honest tea, and it's really interesting. I didn't realize how interesting business stories can be in how they get their start. So if any. Anyone who's maybe certainly anyone who's from Florida in in Atlanta in the in the southeast knows, Peter, Brooke, it's like Milton your mouth awesome chocolate, and I have to tell you. When might my first exposure to Peter Brooke was when I moved here from Seattle Washington in two thousand six my very first year teaching school. I was a fifth grade teacher at crown point in Mandarin. And I think it was Christmas times is about this same time of year. And you know, how kids are so good about showering their teachers with with nice things, and I got like all these bags of chocolate covered popcorn. And I'm like, what is this? And I was hooked ever since the chocolate covered popcorn. So so let's let's hear about about your this is a family business. And how did it all get started? Brooke? Well, my mother started it in nineteen Ninety-three, and she named it after my older brother, Peter and me Brooke and started as one shop and San Marco and it took about two couple years for us to grow the business. And she in really it was through the chocolate covered popcorn that gun the word out about Peter because is our most popular product. And it's dictating and and people like it. And and the way that was discovered is interesting because in San Marco, which the first store, she there's they have something called holiday magic every year and the merchants in the San Marcus square. They all come out and they offer just various different prod. Acts of there. And but it still is my mother are chocolate is very expensive. It's all handmade. And it was something where she had to find to loosen to give something that was affordable. And she went issue decided one day, she there's a actual there's a movie theater down the street from Peterborough, and she was in the movie theater, and she was had the chocolate had the her popcorn enjoying a movie. And she thought, hey, why not try pouring this on the this chocolate this popcorn? And she did it and she gave that to the customers and the people who enjoyed holiday magic. And it was a head. But she didn't customers came in after holiday magic. And they asked for the chocolate. Ever corn? And she said, oh, that's that's not a product. And then the second customer walked in. I'd like to buy chocolate covered. That's not affirmative. And then by the third person. She said, okay, K this product, this is a product. Yes. This is what we're going to sell and from that point on Peter brook started to floor fresh, and and it was just a matter of time because. Yeah. Chocolate to Bilas into our family and finally for me is an expression of love, and it's a lot of of the business because of our customer, and when customers walk in the door or look. The team for a gift, and and it's a gift for someone who's special, and we'll always works to accommodate our customers and and express that love when when people give a gift we do call it but gift his love, and it's amazing how chocolate is an expression of love. And so that's that's why I believe this company has had longevity because love is really a language that everybody understand, you know, it it doesn't have to be Berber lies. We all no were whatever language you speak wherever country you live in everyone understands that. So that's what I believe makes Peter Virk special and every single time when a gas walks in our store, we make sure that will do everything to to. Make sure that they give that gift of love, and we're committed to that. And and that's what I've believe has been special. And so that's that's what we represent. I just love that. I mean chocolate is kind of a universal thing. Anyway, I think people we just love human beings. We love our chocolate. Right. But you as to what you say like, I walk into your your store. I don't live far away from your store, and there's just a a very special loving energy whoever's there, whether it's you or one of your your people that work for you, you greet your people so warmly and in the space. I don't know who you guys have that decorates the the store for you. But it's just so whimsical enchanting. And it's it's almost like Disney for chocolate. You just want us. Just wanna hang out, you know. And and it's just awesome. It's a really big store. You don't have a lot of square footage. But what you do with. It is pretty amazing. And thank you. Yeah. Our decorator. His name is John Bianco. And he decorate my store and sweet pizzas. Well, and he's passionate about what he does. And and it's it's amazing the same in the creations that he comes up with. And so I think it's it's been a good match. And we're fortunate to to have wonderful people working with us what one of them being your Amy your daughter. Thing. I love her. And I've said this before, but she always goes above and beyond. And she I she enjoys what she does. And you can see the passion and she's a self starter. And she's a great example for the rest of the crew who work with us. So so, yeah, we'll thank you as a parent. That's nice to hear. I know. She just loves it. And she calls your store a home her second home. She really feels like that's family, and that comes from you. Because it always you any organization always starts on the top on the top. So that comes from you. So it's it's pretty awesome. I know my daughter is in a good place until she figures out her life in, you know, so I really appreciate that. Brooke? Oh, well, that means a lot to me think, you know, she's creative. And I know that there's so many things that give products. You know, you have your your, you know, your signature product that chocolate covered popcorn. But you guys have a lot quite an assortment of things from the, you know, the chocolate covered, strawberries and the chocolate covered Graham crackers in your really rich. Awesome. A scream in all these things. So so how do you come up with the products and in how do you make them? I just I know people would love the hear all the behind the scenes on how how how how you guys off all these great products. How does it come about? Well, we start with the best ingredients. I and and chocolate is, you know, it's a forgiving medium. And and you can be creative with it. Which is nice where we do is we start with the best ingredients the which is with blend of chocolate, and we actually went to type of Swiss plans and to our Peter Virk want to make our Peter gland and. Base in anything that we do. We is. It's labor is a labor of love. And it's labor intensive because we do make everything by hand. We do we toes. When when we do crossers of are are not clusters everything is posted and everything is done by hand. And like I said the forward love and the the creations and the products have developed over time by by just experimenting with different products and your daughter actually came up with a one ocean had asked for us to do the logo of of you the their signature logo quite the challenge that at the end. The N and the colors, and it was such a challenge, but she was able to meet that challenge. And so sometimes we, you know, our customers come up with a lot of ideas. And we we learn from our customers, and it's just it's just a thing that that we just developed over time, and our passion and listening to our gas, and and that's how really our product developed, and and we do have a I mean, I always tried to introduce other products other than the chocolate covered popcorn. We're very we just so that people can learn that we have Handmaid's hoffy handmade marshmallows. So everything is done by hand and Peter rugs and just developed over time now and one thing I want. People that know 'cause I don't think a lot of people don't realize this. But you guys can do custom customize orders. Right. I've overheard. You guys if a customer even from out of state, you guys are able to do special orders for people. Yes, we work with a lot of corporations ask we customize their baskets and include their materials, and they're in baskets, and whatever they may be sometimes they want their logo and a chocolate bar, and we can do that. We do a lot of orders for corporations who like to give gifts to their clients to thank them during Christmas, and we do ship out of state and nationwide. And we do also in towns livery, so that's really a popular thing during Christmas in Ballantine's mostly Christmas, a lot of doctors like the think re- they're referring doctors and clients and the same live law firms as well. Just various different businesses. And we do custom baskets for each one of them, the each one of them each customer may want different things, and we will always accommodate that for sure this. So Nate, I remember Amy coming home visiting recently was excited about I think you guys sometimes do chocolate covered wine, bottles or champagne bottles. And she said something about a one that she designed a welcome home or something like that realtors might wanna give their clients who just be closed on a new home or something. So that was that would be kind of neat. Maybe the realtors of the could reach out to you. I think that would be a good niche. I don't know a. Yeah. I agree. I agree. And actually, she did make a wine that we have these. We have a wine and beer light. And now we're able to. Yeah. So we have a selection of wine and what we do. Do is we feel the bottle? So it's a chocolate never touches the bottom, but we seal the bottle with a food safety oil. And then we did the line in the chocolate, and then it hardens, and then we can bright, welcome home. Or I love you or happy anniversary happy birthday, whatever. They choose to press may put on the bottle and basically break the seal and the chocolate fall have chocolate with your wine and oftentimes people choose to bring in crown Royal or other type of alcoholic beverage or just anything can it and we can dip it, and we can write a message on that. And and young agree with you. We'll realtors real estate offices. It's a it is a great match. We can do chocolate keys. So. Yeah. It's a great welcome home gift. I think so or even just yeah, I think so are in verse re relevant gush. So I'm getting hungry. Just thinking about chocolate though, that this sounds like so much fun. That's such that's such a neat idea with the bottles for for special occasions, and you while I'm thinking of it because this program is so short, and it goes by so quickly. So while I'm thinking of it, Brooke. If people say realtors are doctors offices are a really anybody. Maybe they they have a a wedding coming up a daughter's wedding or anything. How can they how can they contact your business to to order something? And they can call me directly and and on my cell phone, which is nine four six six two four zero three two or Email me at Brooke Peter dot com. And I will custom make anything in chocolate. I I can't think of anything that we can't make and chocolate. So we do for for wedding we mentioned wedding than we do bride and groom Pressler rods and plays. And we've oh the place setting to with a color that matches their wedding theme. And so yes, you can always contact me on my, Sal. I'm always available to run through ideas. Or and I would say that's the best way. Right. Okay. Repeat your number. And then spell out your Email for us. I just wanna make sure gets it. If they they. Can write it down. Okay. It's nine zero four six six two four zero three two, and It's Brooke B R A. Okay. E at Peter brook. P E T E R B R O K E dot com. All right. Thank you. And and you know, a lot of us. I mean, I think a lot of our listeners, you know, we are in business for selves or have dreams. Maybe we're gonna job, and we have dreams of of having a business of our own in and you have been at it. Now, you're pretty young when your family when your mom started this business. So so you've been at this for a long time. How how any advice you can give people out there that want to have businesses of their own and make it work because I've heard statistics out there that save Leo big huge percentage of businesses. Unfortunately, don't make it. And so. Someone has really passionate about something. And they wanna make a go of it. How do they make business work? Well, I would say first of all passion is essential. And and that's something that no one can take away from you. And that's what drives me. And that's always driven me. I I mean, I never stopped people. Ask me if I get sick of chocolate, absolutely not. And I think every day I wanna wake up in the morning, and I want to be better. And it's just being persistent and never giving up and believing in yourself and your dreams and having passion for your dreams. And for what you do. And I think that that is the the most important thing because if you're passionate about it, you can't you can't fail. It's just something that you you just. Work at every single day. And you never give up an you always think about who your customer is. And you care for them. And you want to deliver the best for them. And and if that's what you're doing. Then you can't fail. That's how that's those are my that's been my personal experience and blurring that screw my mother, and my brother, and we just do it because we love it. And if you do that, then success will eventually come. That's something. Remember that's great lesson. Everyone out there. That's awesome. And it really does show when when we walk in when I walk into your your chocolate store in your often bear, which is I remember when I first met you in in in your like, your the owner, you're not just it's not, you know, in your often, they're reading it and doing everything, and and that's kind of that that got my attention. That's pretty impressive. And it's obvious. You just love what you're doing. Sometimes when I stopped by visit you guys is like happy little elves back there making your chocolates and all your wonderful confections. And in you, even don't you do in the summertime, you do camps for kids, and you do birthday, don't you do things for kids birthday parties and fun things for for children you yes, yes. We do we do. And they're so much fun. You know, the parties that we do we do parties for children and for dolts a lot of adults like the MARTINI parties or the wine parties they can dip their own wine. And their message on it. And then for children it's great to because they can come in and be chocolate years for the day, and they make snow covered popcorn, strawberries, or Graham, crackers, pretzel rods, and they learn how to make it the history chocolate. And and then they take everything that they make they take home with them. So it's a great experience in the as we do camps as well and provide lunch, and then they learnt it's more of a detailed like, it's just more. You learned a little bit more, and you make a lot more chocolate, and you it's just a longer experience. And there's a lot of fun as well. Fun. And I I knew about the kids programs. I didn't know you did adult parties that sounds like. Oh, yes. That really. In one of my mottos is drink the wine. You know, enjoy life, right? So white how wine and chocolate. Yes. Albany should to my favorite things in the whole world. I think of my the Juliet who song right favorite things widened chocolate. I agree with you a hundred percent. Oh, well, my my producers already given me that two minute warning. I wish we had more time with you. So I know we are about out of time. But it's almost Christmas season. It's always hard to believe it's already were thinking of the holidays, but anything you can tell us about what we can expect from Peter brook for Christmas. What would you like the public to know about about the holiday season? Well, if you are looking to give a gift to one of your loved ones or someone who is special or like, you're referring doctors customers, we can definitely customize a basket we can tailor anything that you think of for like your your logos. And for your Christmas gifts we are here to provide the so and make sure that you get what you like. So we we provide a great gift for the holiday season.

We have the format of doing some sort of workshop training or coaching followed up with a demo or presentation or sales pitch of our product and then we have cuny. The problem is is that too many of us will say the women are sixteen minutes. We will maybe teach for forty five minutes get into our demo and pitch and because we don't have much time left to answer a few questions and we may even go over time and the webinar about an hour and fifteen minutes in this defeats. The purpose of a saleswoman are. The whole point of this was webinars to make sales. Okay so it needs to be your top priority. And i been guilty of this many times. And i actually didn't learn what i was doing wrong until i actually started asking feedback from people that attended my weber my My co hosts. If i did a partner webinar and they were just awesome. He told me that. Neil going to longer babies to content heavy and that was my fault because i come from teaching background. I just wanna give give give and teach teach teach. But i'm actually doing my customers a disservice because i'm not giving them enough time to learn about the product of the solution. That's gonna really help them and give them chances to ask questions about it. So what i found. Is that if you're going to run a sixty minute webinar. I find that the best breakdown is twenty five. Twenty fifteen now. This may feel a little bit uncomfortable but trust me twenty five minutes of content of workshop. This includes your introduction your backstory all that kind of stuff and given them great information you should do your level best not to go over twenty five minutes at the twenty five minute mark. You should be transitioning into demoing your product transitioning from workshop to sales offer showing people. What your products. All about how much it costs what it includes and really selling it to them. We'll talk about some tips on how to do that in a moment. Now in those twenty minutes of me selling the product i spent about ten minutes highlighting the most result driven features. We'll talk a little bit more about that. A second revealed the offer. The price would includes and then sell them on the offer. Tell them what you know for. Example with membership includes the support they're going to have and the great content. They're gonna have access to so within ten minutes of the offer. They already know the price they have been given the offer and now i'm just selling them on the offer and then the last fifteen minutes. The webinar is spent answering questions. Fifteen minutes is a good amount of time for me to answer questions and it's not too far into the webinar forty. Five minutes past the webinar people are still hanging around. They've seen the offer and they have questions. Most of the questions are going to air about product of the offer. So you wanna make sure you have enough time to answer every question now. Why do i recommend this breakdown. Well because you don't wanna wait too long into the webinar to start talking about your product on your offer. Twenty five minutes is a good amount of time once you pass the thirty minute mark You're going to lose people's attention. I've tried all kinds of different breakdowns and formats. I've tried giving offers at the forty minute mark. I've tried giving offers at the start of the webinar. Have tried to giving offers at the thirty minute. Mark i found that twenty. Five minutes is the sweet spot for many reasons number one. You can easily overwhelm your audience with too much information if you spend more than twenty five minutes. Hey a ted talk is about fifteen twenty minutes and fill the information. It's filled with great ideas and concepts and the moments so you should be able to do it in twenty five so that's tip number one. The timing of the information not waiting too long to give your offer to offer and giving enough time for qna and not waiting too long for that either forty five minutes in. Let's get the questions answered next the offer itself. What i found works. The best is what. I call value sandwich okay. This is tipped to use the value sandwich with this. Is that you saw the demo or the sales offer with showing people all the great things your product or service. Your course your book your whatever will do for them and one of the best ways to do that is to ask your audience questions like what's your biggest pain point when it comes over no software now why looking to switch what he most about webinars where you get stuck in the reason why i asked these questions so i can show them in mind product how it solves those problems. How we solve the problems that they said themselves they have with our product. I hate the fact that i have to a hodgepodge of frankenstein. A bunch of pieces of software together to run a webinar atlantic beach offer email marketing software. And then the video technology well with women are injured. It's all in one it's built in. Let me show you now. The reason why i do this is so that it quells people's fears and answers. The question. does this product has value to me. Does a solve my problems and if you show them even with just one problem. It's usually enough for them to say. Sign me up. Because she showed me live. How your product can help solve a problem. I stated i had so. That's the first part of the sandwich. Then we stayed the offer like. Here's the price what's going to osu. And then the other side of the sandwich or other part of the sandwich is what you're going to get when you pay when you sign up again more value. We talk about all the things they may not be aware of. Hey we have. The women are ninja kademi inside of wepener. Ninja were has a library of training for you to check out seeing become a webinar ninja. We have seven day support that you can chat with rain side. The app we have member webinars free coaching. That you can jump on and ask questions and help. Every plan comes to the fourteen day trial. You get the point. You're product your services going to have benefits. It's going to have things that are included that you may have forgotten about. Just don't think are super impressive but to your customer. It is because they've never heard of it before. This is where you really sell the value. So that in the beginning of like wow cells all these problems this is the price and get all the stuff. Wow what a great value. So that's tip number two value sandwich tip number three make sales public. This one is dynamite. What we do on ourselves webinars that have worked really well is when we make the offer we say to them. Hey if you sign up during the webinar right now before we end this webinar and usually that gives them about twenty two fifteen minutes to sign up before we wrap up. That's why the offer early on is important. We say saying chat if you signed up and if you do so we will send you a free t shirt now. Your bonus your prize. Your gift can be anything like but the point here is that you're getting people in the chat saying hey. I signed up haifa. Komo are ninja encourage other people to sign up as well as a see the chat blow up it also gives them a reason to buy now. Why by now on the webinar. Maybe there's a special offer but this is an extra special offer to get them to sign up immediately while you have them in the palm of her hands on the webinar. Something small is going to make a difference. It's just something in by giving them some sort of Recognition shadow on the chat and reward for taking action is huge. We found that this really helps propel sales right on the webinar and even sometimes People will email us after the webinars over and say hey. I signed up right after the webinar anyway and can get that t shirt and of course we say yes because we're cool like that but the point here is that it gives people a chance to say.

Episode 17: Eddie Edwards on GayBarchives

"Welcome to another episode of the gay bar show where we explore gay history one bar at a time. I'm your host. Art smith in our special guest today started his performing career at a very early age. Impersonating the look and the sound of such gay icons as bette midler barbra streisand and share forty years later. He's still at it. Please welcome eddie edwards. Welcome eddie thank you very much. It is great to be here art. Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. You're quite welcome looking forward to our conversation. Yes me too. I think this is going to be a lot of fun down. Memory lane ed and has been for me so far as you know. My gabe archives project is all about exploring the history of gay bars and the role. They played in the growth of our community. Why do you think that's important to remember that part of our past. Oh man well because it is basically the on. Lgbt transgender community. If i miss something you know a forgive me but I think in a lot of cases for a lot of people that was basically our family when we actually were coming out of the closet. We were confused when we have all mumbo jumbo going on in our brains about you know all the craziness that society basically gives us all this trash. The the gay bars were very important to me in so many other people And it's it's it's kinda changed a lot over the years but yet the foundation is still there in the fact where it's just a great community the fam And i think it's something that needs to be always remembered And something that needs to be you know always there for us as a gay community To be able to have. I agree one hundred percent. You started performing in gay bars at a very early age and the early eighties. Some accounts claim that you knew that you were gay by that time. What was that experience like for a teenager. Well i'll tell you on. I knew i was gay probably even before i hit puberty. I know that's really weird For a lot of people to understand. Maybe not. But i really knew that i was gay and on i think the only thing that kind of held me back from kind of accepting it You know at the age of like you know twelve. A thirteen was basically my influence. I had with the Religion that i grew up with which was pentecostal You know southern baptists and That kind of lasted for a little bit. But then as i educated myself about it i realized that it was just a bunch of hullaballoo. You know lot of craziness that is based on fear and of course you know just other people's belief but i just kind of on you know decided i wasn't gonna live ally and i was just going to basically let the world know who was that i was and if they decided to accept me. That's great if not. That's their issue not mine. I mean i. It came to terms with it. So i actually told my. I told my. I told several people. I didn't tell my dad. I told my mom. I told other friends of mine that Were gay that. I was gay and then When i was a sophomore in high school i came out of the closet. Now this was a very redneck. A high school it was tucson arizona back in the One thousand nine hundred eighty And it was really redneck. And i just thought you know what this is who i am. This is you know i'm not. I'm not gonna live ally. I think that's probably was the most important thing is. I didn't want to live a lie in who it was that i was as a person. Well it's funny because you know. I'm glad that i actually did that. Because i get letters and emails from a lot of people that i went to high school with who said that i was really kind of their their hero in a way because on as they came to their ob sexuality on you know in learn to a was that they were. I was an inspiration to them. Which was you know. Kind of weird for me but a lot of these people were people that i got bullied by but anyways You know that was the reason why. I decided to come out of the closet when i was really young because i just you know i just didn't wanna live ally and you have a a somewhat unique experience because you started before you were professionally performing. You started performing at home with your identical twin brother and your parents and your twin brother were aware that you were gay. Obviously since you came out to them What was their reaction. Well i think my brother was the one who took it. The most difficult and the reason why is because when you're twin you are really judged as the same person you don't have your own identity so It was really hard. I think for him But you know in another way as time went on it was an inspiration for Him because later on you know during the His life he did come come to terms that he was gay but he just didn't want to live the gay lifestyle which was fine. I mean again. I have no judgment about that. You know if someone wants doesn't want to live the life of being gay. That is their decision so he that's the way he's always been I would say from the age of twenty on. He decided that he wanted to become a sexual just because of our careers and he just did not have the time to be able to focus on that part of his life so it was kind of just put everything into business and i respect that. I appreciate that and in all honesty. It was good for me. Because i didn't want to run the business part of show business but a lot of his friends that were gay looked up to me and john. I think that on you know it was a it was tough but we when we when we played his kids i was always the woman and he was always demand so i think that you know in a sense kind of deep down you know he knew that this was the journey that i was gonna take life and i will say that you when we started working together was really a major issue for a very long time just because my brother is a devout born again christian now on but yet i say that in a way where he's very open to gay people and all that stuff he doesn't have a judgment towards any of that those people now he did it earlier in his life Twenty years ago. But i think the journey that i've taken in my life Has really helped him. Look at the whole gay thing Completely differently i can understand that. And i totally agree with your philosophy as well as his that while. It is heartwarming to hear about some celebrity or person that you admire and respect coming out as being gay and that does kind of bring a sense of pride to the you know two gay people in reality. I don't care who anybody is sleeping with. Unless i'm sleeping with them. Then that that might be an issue but in general it doesn't matter to me who other people choose to sleep with. That's their business. Yes yes yes. Yup i agree. So you have performed all over the world you performed. In asia japan japan china singapore singapore. You performed in puerto rico. The bahamas all kinds of different places and several of these were gay venues s. You remember the names of these these gay bars where you're performed early in your career and you have memories about them and yes i do and being being someone who was young You know not that. I'm young now but younger. I was in my twenties and thirties were. I was traveling to these places. It was so amazing for a young gay man to be able to experience the the gay bars and all of the things that were kind of different project the same From america to let's say japan or china or You know Puerto rico or different things like that on you know. A lot of it was the same but yet a lot of it was different. I think the common denominator is that they were all the same but yet it was interesting because in some countries that i were female impersonators. Gods you know they were. They were just amazing because people just looked up to them because they were just amazed by what it is that they did so. It's kinda like you know the the ladyboys in thailand They are you know like goddesses over there and it's very popular and you know You know it. They were not looked down. Upon like we were looked down upon in the seventies and eighties where we were just drag. Quaid's you know our and different things like that over there. It was considered to be an art form on it. Was these these These drag queens were kind of worshiped you know in their own community and on you know Their their art form of performing was amazing. Things that i had never seen it's amazing the imagination. All the different things that you know that they did over there that i had never seen as a gain man over here. You know when. I grew up on look-alikes were basically The thing if you didn't do a look alike and you were a drag queen You weren't really anything you know. It's not like now. We're like with the with the rupaul drag race. People are the set. They had their own image. They had their own thing Back when i was in the eighties you know It was different. You kind of had do a look alike To be able to be kind of a big not saying that there were not people that had their own personas. But everyone that i that i worked work. That had their own celebrity. That they actually did so like you said In japan wonderful bar called the kinsmen. I don't know if it's still there is wonderful. We did performing there And then on singapore it was a place called dorothy his With was owned by two of my very dear friends I know they had chosen different things over there than in In puerto rico. We did an amazing place. We did this a lot. It was called the atlantic beach. Hotel was to gay A gay hotel gay bar that was on the water and they had a amazing outdoor area right on the beach. And so when you were out there you know you had a wonderful midst of the ocean. The wind that was hitting you and your hair and it was just blowing. Just write whatever and it was kind of like diana ross. She was in central park with the hair. All this up or whatever and we add a amazing amazing times over there. it's interesting. I don't remember the gay bar in the bahamas but there were a couple of them that i formed out when i was over there. Which was you know we really. You know that was. That was really great Experience they really and you have to realize you know over in the bahamas. It's very conservative so That was really underground. It was kind of an underground club. Because the you know the bahamas people didn't really look at Gay people as you know. accepting china exact same way. It was all underground I don't remember the bar over there tonight. Performed at but it was on there. Were a couple of them a man. It was packed. It was packed and they gave money like it was going out of town and also japan was the same way They would tip you a hundred yet. Which i believe at that time was about one hundred dollars so you know they. You really made a lot of money when when you went over there And then also amsterdam is well performed over in amsterdam at several different places. One i think was called the concrete I believe i'm not sure about that. But i i. It seems to be At performed i couple performed a couple of other places again The it was amazing. They really worshiped. You know celebrity impersonators drag queens over there and it was just you know it was really amazing. How like over there at that particular time. It was just so open and everyone just let everyone be who they were and it was amazing in. You know the bath houses over. There are completely different than the bath. Houses were here in the eighties where it was kind of like a hush hush thing over there. They're celebrated over there. They have they had two different ones. One was a day spa and it was a place where you would go and you would relax and you would have your massage than you. Would you know all that stuff and was like a luxury thing. Whatever and then you would do your thing. Whatever during the day maybe in between work and then at night you would go to the evening spot and that was a whole different other things as well but it was celebrated over there so the cultures were very amazing to me and i just loved it so much because in a lot of those places unlike the united states are being gay was it was just a celebration and i think that was what i really enjoyed about being in different countries at that time. was it was celebration. You know More so now. It's more of a celebration than it was back then in the eighties. Because i think of aids and everything like that you mentioned the Atlantic beach in san juan and alantic beach hotel. And the first time i went to san juan i was on a trip that was sponsored by the puerto rico tourism company which is like their travel bureau and they put us up in hotel on condado beach called it was the sheridan i'm not sure marriott kanadoglu it had this laris casino downstairs and it was not a gay trip. It was a trip that i was doing for publication mainstream publication. And i was little nervous. Because i knew that puerto rico is a little bit of a You know macho image of nails in that there was not likely to be as much openness for You know the gay community. And i was hoping to at least able to visit a gay bar while i was there and kind of experience. It and the irony of it was that one night i decided to go from the marriott and walk down the beach so i walked between. You know the side of the marriott down the san toward the beach and there were these big sea turtles. They're roped off because it was may and they were in breeding season and i walked past there and turned to the left to walk along the beach at night and the very next building to marry hot was the atlantic beach and i didn't know it was a gay bar didn't know what it was but there are people up on the patio having a good time and there was music and says i'm going to go up there and have a beer and so like you were saying it was. It was kind of unusual that it was in such a open public tourist area light next to a major hotel. Unfortunately the The atlantic beach bar is permanently closed. Now so it's no longer there but You know obviously at a young age performing gay bars. What impact did the gay bar scene. Have on your process with coming out. How did that impact you. Well you know. I think basically it was the fact that i just saw so many people that were just happy and they were themselves and it was their energy and that they just didn't care what the world you know thought about them when they were in that particular atmosphere and you know i just I you know. I mean i have always always just thought to myself you know. Life is just way too short to be able to hide it. Is that you really. Are you know. I'm not religious. But i'm very spiritual person. And i believe that a lot of cases god put gay people on their on earth to be able to teach the world about diversity you know and being able to you know Made people understand that everybody is different. In every way rather it's sexuality the colored the skin you know type of person they are personalities you know on and on and on it's all about diversity and as the world gets older and older and older i do believe that diversity is going to basically kind of on people are just going to really on just embrace it and enjoy it and in a lot of cases may be you know celebrate it and i think that's what's happening now more so than a lot of different places. Yeah i mean we. We are seeing some things with race in all that stuff. But i really think that things you know in a lot of cases have to get worse before they get better. You know But that your question regarding the impact. I think it just was the fact that i just loved the way that people just accepted the fact that they were and how much more happier they what they were because i did see people when i was out of the bars that i knew for a fact i mean these people were going to high school with. They're like totally gay. You know but yet they were so denying it and you could tell by just their their their essence and how they were that they just were not happy. They want happy because they just had this little secret inside. That would just eating away at them because of what society has fed them you know in their brains and they decided to take this little thing and take it on as a belief and it completely destroyed you know so many people you know and i just thought going to be one of those people. You know i'm going to. I'm going to celebrate my gayness. I'm going to celebrate the gift that god gave me. You know So that's that's that's kinda you know the the impact it had on me and obviously it was. It was a positive thing for your career to because you got to start performing publicly with gay bars and things like that before you may have been able to get into some really you know mainstream venues in california talent and everything you performed also at an iconic bar in los angeles i think everybody who Reminisces about the old days in in la has at some point mentioned studio one And that must have been an incredible experience for someone coming from tucson and having that smaller town image in their head and then going to somewhere like studio one. That like for you off when i tell you art it was it was such a drain because as i always i always of studio one in all of the celebrities that use to perform there because you know they had that place downstairs from it. Oh god and you know. I can't remember the name of it. The rose tattoo. I think is It was called yes. And oh my god i mean wayland. Flowers perform their jim bailey. Perform their If i'm not mistaken a lot of great celebrities perform there. And i just i dreamt as a child when i was a kid i thought oh my god i mean i could see myself you know being able to perform at these places now back up a little bit on so i graduated from high school when i was seventeen years old. I graduated when i was a junior. Just because i wanted to be able to finish my education and high school. I want to get my diploma. And then i had things i had to do. In the world i wanted to become a star. You know on sell. I basically graduated. When i was a junior i left. Tucson actually left tucson You know a star because you know. I was very well known as female impersonator really a celebrity impersonator. I wasn't a drag queen. Although i it's funny i it was my only time that i did have a drag name. My drag name was miss. That was my very first drag name. That was what all the drag queens decided that they were gonna call me missy so that was kinda like my very first Drag name I didn't bring it with me. I just thought. I just wanna just go with eddie edwards. That was what i had for my in my career. But it was so i moved i graduated. I moved to la. My uncle was the announcer on the senate share show. He was very connective. He was the one who said ladies. And gentlemen. Sonny and cher. That was my uncle jack and he basically got me into The industry Working as a script. Boy i was. I was a running scripts Off preteen them up for all of the famous Thing series that we're going on like fame little house on the prairie. Who's the boss. You know all that stuff. Whatever so i was do we back during the day and then at night i would go. I would venture out to the gay bars and you know i. would you know. Try to figure out how. I could be able to crack this. Not you know because no one knew me. You know i so anyways on. So what happened was around the time that down and out in beverly hills Was was very big They were having a bette midler look-alike contests and scott forbes. The owner put this whole thing together. Scott forms was amazing. Amazing guy and he basically Had known that i did that. And he said we're having a bette midler look alike contest and we I would like for you to be able to interrupt. Because i think you have a really good chance of winning. It was hosted by the very famous female impersonator kenny. Sasha now kenny. Bette midler impersonator of that particular air. There was no one who looked more like that midler than he did at that particular time plus he also traveled with share on the road doing a lot of videos of him out there singing with share as bette midler when they were in las vegas anyways. So kenny hosted the show. Long story short. I won the grand prize. I think it was a thousand dollars. I think at that time and that was kind of when people started to know. Talk about me. All the subsidy is amazing. That midler all that stuff. And then that kind of is what got me into the actual on circuit In california at that time which was like a it was rage Which the the one of the big ones The four star saloon. I did hundreds of shows at the four star. Saloon with erica townsend. Which was the the main diva at that time and she hosted the show so i worked there a lot and then at that particular time they had every every like i think every every other sunday they would have kaj. That was when the famous kaj girls from the the main nightclub the one that created it all here in the united states was just literally four minutes down the road and that was where all of the celebrities would go to see famous drag queens now. I thought to myself. I'll never worked there ever but i just would always i go there i hang out. You know you know mingle with the cast all that stuff. Whatever anyways i got really good in with the cast of that Particular on the show. The the the the main show that was way before the broadway musical and all that so i'm going on a tangent. I don't wanna get a head of myself by a long long long story short. I went in. I addition for kosh and after i was hired as bette midler the very first day. That's how popular my bet. Bette midler was. I was hired immediately a four for that but the guy the owner loop has yoko who is mr kasha fall was the one that actually created created. He said you know he said if i'm going to hire you on a regular basis. He says you can't just do one character. You've gotta do to characters. Everybody had to do at least two characters. So i said well i said i do barbara streisand. He says well. How good is it. I said well. I'll audition for for you So i he said this. The most pathetic thing i've ever seen in my life he says Work on it and come back. I worked on it and worked on it work done. I even went as far as hiring professional makeup artists to kind of help me make up whatever long story short after six eighteen sixteen auditions. I finally got hired as barbra. Streisand and mr kaj and then the rest is history to mazing so far. Most of what we've talked about of your coming out experience and you're you're performing experience in the early years as been pretty positive and uplifting And i don't wanna leave our viewers or listeners with the wrong impression You were bullied and shunned for being gay at some point as well correct. Oh god yes so much i mean. In high school because tucson arizona back then was basically like the south. You know i remember. You know. I was i i was. I was bullied in high school so much. It was so funny because my brother had to go through the exact same thing because we were so identical. People couldn't tell us apart. So you know. I remember this one time when i first came out of the closet and all this stuff. One of the the big jocks. He was the quarterback or whatever. One of the big guys was really popular you side. Hey dude you said. I i heard you. I heard your brother was gay. Is that true. I said no. That's not true. Said i'm the one that's gay he those arcade of he just went. And just weld on you know and you know and so you know i You know i. I put up with that. You know but you know. I just figured you know if i was if this was what i had to go through to accept. Who was that that i was so be. I mean there was nothing i could do about it. You know i mean it was their their insecurities not mine so anyway. So i took a lot from this particular guy plus other people as well. And then you know In tucson anytime. I was out shopping or anything like that. And i'd be like in a store or whatever and there'd be like a young a young kid probably who is struggling with his own sexuality you know You know a you know. They would always tease me. Or you know different things. Either they would ask me. Are you gay. You know all this stuff. And so anyways. But yes i did. I did take a lot a lot of abuse. you know. i think a lot of us. Have you know at that particular time and really sealed. Still do i mean it's still. It's still happening to these days. But as i said before earlier on in the video to this day i get so many emails from people that i went to high school with who basically said that i was an inspiration to them because they it really gave them a chance to look at me and kind of envy me because i was able to come out of the closet You know and they weren't while so about five years later. You know when. I was kind of starting to get a name for myself. You know i was really big in the la area I think i've maybe done a couple of tv things and all that stuff. I was asked to go back to tucson. Arizona and perform in a club called. Ib cheese and You know believe it's still there. I think it's it's it's it's dale. There may have dried chosen and it was great because i came back to my hometown. The house you know coming back to her hometown and doing a concert and you know i was. You know That was me you know and on people just you know really looked up to me and all this stuff while i walk in on that particular night to do my show and all this and who's sitting at the bar french kissing this guy was that jock who literally weld on me. When i was young and would tease me and who would be up. It was him sitting at that bar. And i thought to myself at that point you know what it all makes sense. He just unfortunately saw a little bit of me in him and he just unfortunately couldn't handle it. Did i go up and did i approach him. No i didn't because that would have been a judgment on my My you know with me. Having to judge jumped. And what's what's the use of that. That's a waste of time in energy. I figured you know what he had his journey that he had to take. And if i had to take a couple of punches to be able to have him accept his re reality and who was that he was so be it. Listen my life is amazing. Amazing today and i wouldn't do anything different now. I noticed that during our conversation name of bette midler has come up several times in several different contexts and she is apparently one of the primary characters that you have been impersonating for decades. It's widely known that that midler got her start in some Gay excuse me gay bath. Houses and cd dive bars. What was the response to your impersonation of her and your act in general in those same kind of places. Well it's funny. Because once i got the name of doing bette midler and there wasn't many people besides sasha who actually was doing back at the same time that i was and so i was asked a lot by lot of gay bath house owners if i would come and basically you know host shows or kind of do a reenactment of her actual Bath house you know You know extravaganza that she did when she was with. Barry manilow and the Bat houses. And so i really. You know made some really good money doing that. And it was amazing for need because you know bette midler always talked about Having all the boys in towels surrounded by her around the stage all that stuff and you know singing. And and all that stuff and everything. And i i of course you know did a lot of her older hits anything that was on recording That i was able to duplicate you know or seem to or whatever back then was why didn't of course also you know i also talk to her live and i did all the jokes and sophie tucker never forget you know all that campy stuff and all that stuff you know and and i just basically got as much of her stuff that i could get you have to realize this is way before youtube so none of that was available but i was lucky enough to be able to have friends in the business. Who had like beta tapes or a old videotapes. They had converted into an. I was able to see a lot of the stuff that she did when she was in the bath house. So i was able to create all that and for a lot of these people that were at these bath houses and all that stuff. It was amazing for them because they've never seen any of this stuff and they really thought that. This was my own material that i was doing as a bette midler counter but it wasn't. It was all of her stuff. I just happened to have been copying it on a doing it and it was amazing. I also went as far as getting a very mantle Look alike eating play the piano but we kind of made a little cardboard cutout of the piano you know and all the stuff and he was in the background in all this stuff playing in different leagues that he did a couple barry manilow numbers and stuff but he was he was really great. It was really great. It was a lot of fine people. Enjoy edged. you know and It was it was really really fun. Fun fun times. It was wonderful to be able to perform at the famous hollywood spa in california which is like my god renown He'd been it's been there forever. And i remember there. Was this one guy who was the. Dj name was wizard. Doubt you had to be really ought to remember wizard. But he was one of he was a bald guy. He was one of the best deejays of all time and the always played the music there and he was the one who did my sound. You know but that's that's how far. It's how far i go back and you have to realize when i was performing at this club i was like totally. Underage are like i was with all of the rest of the bars. But they didn't care because you know on. I looked older even think anyone really asked my age. He just figured that to bend over. Because when i dressed his bette midler. I just looked older. You know so. That's that's kind of the story of that since then you've become famous for portraying a wide variety of world renowned celebrities and one thing. I want to emphasize for people who may not know this. You know we're talking about your but all of your impersonations include you're live vocals. You're not lip synching to anything ever you. You do characters voices mannerisms makeup costume everything and impersonate them in the true sense of the art which of those people have you met and you know what stories would you want to share about that sure. Well i have been so blessed in this business. I mean i think god every day because i could could have never in my life dreamt of the celebrities that i had met our have had dinner with had been invited over to their beautiful homes had gone places with them. You know it's it's just. It's incredible. I'd have to pinch myself. Sometimes because i think is this. Is this a dream of course in my spirituality. This whole event that we're going through as al-ajeen rain but You know it's just amazing. You know on so i have met the people that let's start with the people that i performed performed as in match first one that i was able to meet was lily. Tomlin lily used to coming to the club. The famous club in los angeles slow lucretia for the original lucretia fall and she was the very first one that i was able to perform as now when i was a child. This is how ma started. Is that you know my brother. And i would sit in front of the tv set and we would basically a pick up voices. That's how we learn to do. Voices was being able to hear them and then do that lily. Tomlin was my very first character that i ever did live. Ernestine tomlin one rating and so. That's kind of what. I was the very first one that i it was ironic that i happened to been the very first celebrity. How can have been the very first celebrity that i actually performed for so the way the story goes is that i was doing. I was doing on in barbra streisand at the time in the kosh and owner lupus. Yoko had called me and said lilly and her partner. Jane just made reservations To come to the show in a week. Could you get your wig costume. All that stuff together and enact together to do for her when she arrives. And i was like absolutely now honestly i'd never did lily before except for when i was a child all this. I never did the walk. So i rushed down to hollywood wigs. Which was like the place for all of the famous suit. Celebrities would have on would buy their wigs. ellen was the owner and she was the best Stylish she could do anything. And i said ellen Lillies coming to see me. I said i need this way in two days. So she had the wait for me. I went to a salvation army. And i got you know a blouse and a skirt a black belt and i had a friend of mine who worked for the on the I think it was eighteen or or or bell or whatever. It was at that time. Whatever and i said you know. Do you know where. I could find like one of the old operator. Things that lily tomlin used to use for pharmacy. He says yeah he says we have a ton of them he says i said yes i said i need one so he got me one which was amazing which made it that much more authentic and so i put together in a week and i was nervous as hell but when i came out and did it lily and jane were in hysterics. They just loved it. She had said that she'd never seen anyone do her. That particular thing. So i guess i guess i was the first which was amazing and she was like it was. It was amazing. She said you every nuisance News of may she said everything was just absolutely perfect so of course she loved it. There's a photo of me. I think that you have with me doing ernestine dressed up as ernestine with her the night that i actually did it. So that was the first one and then on the And then as time went on Trying to think who else it was there was anyone else. Macaj that k actually came to see me perform kid. I can't remember offhand. There was so we got so many of the big celebrities. In the cars that would come see us. Lucille ball frank sinatra johnny carson. All kinds of different. So i mean i was performing for all of these amazing celebrities. Donald o'connor ginger. Rogers martha ray. I mean you know all the great ones if they were an old star or even new start. They were always coming into tila cash to see themselves in person. So then what happened was are so bette. Midler was performing at In the This was before her residency. I believe and so she was performing at caesars. And so i had a friend of mine. Uk scott schecter who was the entertainment director. He schussed seen my show in vegas and he had said Why don't you come see a Bet miller she you know she's doing a show at caesars and says i really want you to meet her. I've shown photos of you to her. And she was in hysterics so so scott. Got me front row seats. You know and i was able to go backstage. Spend some time with her. Meet her and just it was. It was just. I mean amazing. We had some really amazing quality time together and she was just so complimentary about me. She kept on saying to me. It was so funny she was like you. Don't look like a female personal. She says. I can't believe you're female person. You just don't look like a female person. She kept on going on and on and my bet. What is a female presenters. Supposed to look up. She says i just. I don't know she says i'm looking at you. And she says i just she says what you do with makeup and all this stuff is so amazing because you just don't look anything like me now but she says when you get dressed up you just looked so much like you. Just don't look like impersonators. She kept on saying that was just so weird but anyways So on that was. That was the one i met. We always we always kept in contact with Went to go. See her on broadway when she was dolly. I got backstage added. Sign of a bunch of stuff for me. I have this dolores to lago doll. She signed for me. Bunch of stuff program. Hello dolly then Then the next one. That i was able to me was share now. I make sure before several times. Because i was on the set of the sonny and cher show and my brother and i would hang out all the time when we were little Because he was the announcer. My uncle was the announcer and also was the secretary to george slaughter. Who was the producer writer director of the sending share show and laughing in all kinds of different stuff so You know so Net her again on hadn't seen her in a long time. And when i told her i was she was like. Oh my god. She said i knew you were you. Were little she said you and your brother was so adorable and she said sonny and i we just just loved you guys and all this up so that was that was really nice you know and then on and then later on to keep on the thing for share later on just last october She was doing on a big thing for biden and harris You know to get them into office and all that stuff and so she called on her. People called My friend frank marino to host the show franken do it so franken said i have eddie edwards that could host and she was like. Oh yes get eddie. So anyways on so. I worked with her. I don't know if i sent you that photo. I worked with her during cova. This was amazing during cova. And i have photos of her night together. I'm in the mask she wasn't you know And so i just did something with her and i. It was great. Because i'd never actually worked with her in actual show so to be able to work with her in an actual show and be able to introduce her was a dream. Come true for me so to work with an actual artists that you actually perform for. What is amazing. Because the only one who really did that as far as i know Who actually worked with her onstage. While she was doing the show was up. The best cher. Impersonator of all time in the eighties was elgin cana. Not taking anything away from chad. Michaels chad michaels. Great chad michaels. Amazing but chad. Michaels does share now Where Elgin did share with the eighties. Luck which is the same thing that that I did so it was just really a great honor to be able to work with her. Then after that. Then i was able. I met barbara streisand. When i was at a party i wasn't. I wasn't dressed as her at that time but on her she knew who i was and she knew exactly what it was. I did a matter of fact. Her manager richard jay alexander Had talked to me and said you know barbara. And i were thinking about hiring you to be her decoy when she travels to europe Because the with all the press she wanted to hire you to leave after the show and therefore everyone would follow you thinking that it was barbara and then barbara could sneak out and have her privacy. So i was like amazed that she would even kid sitter me. You know for doing that. But barbara's the most amazing to me is a nice at really amazing and then But see her. oh so. I had on. I worked for one of the top promoters in montreal. Canada showed kagan who was a very famous there and he knew The gentleman that actually got salim started to actually believe introduced are rene to selene and so He came to see my show. When i was in montreal at class czar on and had said you have to meet selene. I mean selene would go crazy. So are so. He sent video of me doing selene. Selene says i. I wanna meet the sky so She had me come to vegas. When she was at caesar's i spent an hour so with her and we had a great shot and it was amazing. She didn't see my website side so i gave her my website on and saw her in. The show was so funny. So i'm sitting front row. And i'm taking notes or whatever add. Selene is playing with me on stage as she's doing her show so she's like seed and then all of a sudden she stops and she'll go did you get that unlike dying and like wondering like what's what's going on but she's playing with and then she would go and she'd sing something and then she'd go like are you taking your notes you know so. It was like a amazing. She's such a funny funny woman she's just no one knows how funny she is. She's just so funny and so so crazy anyways. After after the show the next day. I get a phone call from patrick hirst's on which is has reneged. Son and patrick says selene wanted you to know that she went to your website and she said to tell you and your brother without a doubt she is your biggest fan so i thought oh my god if i could impress selene with my selena might oh my god. This is like you know amazing. So that's my selene. That concludes part. One of our gabe archives interview with the one and only eddie edwards.

202: What's It Like to Sleep on a Bus? | Ear Biscuits Ep. 202

"The ramble welcome to ear biscuits. I'm link and I'm read this week at the roundtable of dim lighting. We are exploring the question. Was it like sleep on a bus and other stories from the row yeah. We've been on the road. Yeah we've been traveling around doing shows and lots of Bonk bus bunk time for introspection. <hes> I had a horrifying experience which I'll share a little bit later but I had some really good experiences with those as well changed my life as well as the life of my children. Yes we've been on the road on tour and then I attacked some time in North Carolina at the end of my time and you came back here and had a station so we'll get into talking about that a little bit but we do want to let you know that while we are back temporarily we are going back out on the road. Yes we're gonNA keep telling you about when we're going to be on the road and you know what you should go gone Internet's in look around and all the fun that we had on our this this last tour. We've got there's <hes> well. We're going to talk to him about it. Well there's only photos though Oh yeah there's photos photo evidence of the things that we did and how much fun people had at the things that we were doing starting ship coming forth September fourth <hes> the next leg the tour begins Houston Texas Knowledge Birmingham Jacksonville Florida Tampa Florida they may go to Las Vegas October Nineteenth November Twentieth Albuquerque New Mexico in Phoenix Arizona Sacramento California and Valley Center California go to read and link live dot com to get ticket and the clarify something <hes> we we talked about this owner instagram one of those instagram videos that we did were eating too or food but <hes> a lot we met somebody on the road and <hes> we tend to meet people when we're in these cities and they tend to say things Oh. I didn't know you were in town. That's why we continue talking about the shows but then we met someone who didn't know about the show but she was like I don't have three hundred dollars and we really what are you talking about three hundred dollars and I think what she was doing and what a lot of people are doing is if you just Google read <hes> in link concert tickets well some sponsor I do every day so sponsored sites for were. They're reselling tickets are gonNA come up and you don't buy tickets there. Go to Renton Link Live Dot Com to get the he best prices on tickets. I think we got tickets. Starting around thirty dollars for these upcoming shows so <hes> we're trying to make you as affordable as possible so that won't be an excuse <hes> if you don't know about it that maybe that's our fault but <hes> if you paying a whole lot of money for your tickets that might be your fault. If you're going to the wrong place the bus life was something that was interesting which will talk about but also the culinary lifestyle that we assumed while on tour was I. I can't I call it. I can't say if it was great or if it was horrible it was growth I it was it was a great an horrible. We had this idea and if you're you know if you happen to catch an instagram live like we're talking like an hour before our show uh-huh maybe a little bit more sometimes we would sit down and we would eat what you or at least those of you who voted in responded to our instagram post. We ate the two most popular signature Richard Dishes from this most signature restaurant at each city that we were in according to you we put it him against each other and it turns out that those signature dishes are not things like Kale Salads no as you might imagine they are things like <hes> you just the increased the probability of you having a heart attack by at least two percent like every time you eat something that kind of meal I think by certain pointing the tour we were eating dishes that were just called cholesterol. Yes I okay. We got a big <hes> Styrofoam clam. Shell opened that thing. Oh look it's just cholesterol will literally one of them was just fried cheese dip. Did you dip in ranch dressing. That was pretty great and you know what it was really good. That was in Milwaukee Walkie. That wasn't these Kurds Kurtz which it's hurting Milwaukee Milwaukee One K. Milwaukee won the food contest not only did they have the best dish according to me I think they had the best to dishes. According to me I think you'd like and they also had the custard. I mean the custard the hamburger and the cheese Kurds Milwaukee knows what they're doing when it comes to eating cheese burger and custard were from cops and we would I mean once you start eating a cheeseburger not good so restaurant called Cops K. o. p. p.. We're not taking food from the police right. You don't trust the belief that's not going to get that is not what we don't get civic that is not uh-huh sitting. We got that food from COPS. What are you talking about from cops yeah? You're accepting food from what I try to pronounce Ilise. I tried to emphasize the K. and the two peas when I set up your own brain all that right but I did see it K._O.. P._B._S. when you're eating and cheeseburger that's good. Is that cheeseburger. You don't merely just taste the cheeseburger eat to hold cheeseburger. I couldn't even if we do have a whole clam. Shell the Kurds over here and then you the way to the custard is right next to it. See I made a Kurds way. I saw you didn't even have to emphasize. I knew that you were saying W.. H. E. W. W. H.. E. Y. W. h. e. w. now speaking of tasting. I'm I think I'm still tasting what I had yesterday's my last meal North Carolina because of the thing that you got to do you gotta come to California and like go back to California Diet and you probably feel like clean and liked and useful. I matter of fact I ate a Vegan dinner last night. Yeah see and I did not boy my farts well. Let's not talk about your hearts. We do that enough. I mean I don't WanNa talk about him except to say that my in Ainhoa Peaches and cream on this side of the table okay well but but you in your body willing to us you had a week's worth North Carolina. What Line of what I did is I did to reading and then I went to North Carolina and I was like I'm still on vacation and I'm here in North Carolina and I just kept on eating that way in the meal that is currently in my stomach and I've actually like felt it lurching what multiple times okay you didn't kill it? I I went my final meal was cookout. Gosh and let me tell you what I got. I love cookout and I don't even know if you know about this yet I don't even want to. I don't know if you know about the <hes> all the sides that are offered okay so case you didn't know cookout is a fast food hamburger place place in the south that has what makes it unusual. It's not just the fact that is good food but the sides that you can get other than fries are basically just ridiculous. There are no rules in the universe like they've thrown all rules news of what aside is to the side because I got first of all I didn't get a cheeseburger. I got barbecue sandwich because I was like I've never had the barbecue sandwich from cookout. I've never done always gotten it from Smithfield and we and and we had one meal left and I was like I haven't had barbecue sandwich yet. <hes> lock in shepherded never been a cookout day or or already knew you are horrible parent could not remember the last time they went to cook out <hes> you no because Lockwood have been you know a lot younger. You hit him on a hit every time you take them to cook so I I got a barbecue sandwich men in black and then the side that I got a course one of the sides was a corn dog right because that's aside nuggets can be assigned to get nuggets. No the other side was a chicken case India but you just got remains but that's what makes it so crazy. They got chicken case a deal. They actually have enchiladas as sides to to say that word right case India the other one enchilada yeah it's not an inch is an anche aunt. You Lada is an easy not an can't be talking to people about ways to pronounce words man and Shehadeh. It's entre La if you you say enchiladas Lada Enchilada any right but go ahead. We know what you mean. Well then you should paint me until tell me that I'm saying it wrong. I'll pinch <hes> so but I didn't get a the where I drew the line as I didn't get a milkshake over forty different flavors of milkshakes including one in July a watermelon milkshake watermelon shake that has pieces of watermelon in it. That's only Sir Serb in July and August. It's great. It's crazy. It's crazy in place if you ever looked through the window at the making all that one person in there just spinning around it. It's like a one like a cartoon well. I've seen multiple notable people but there's only room for girl. It is all one girl and you think you saw six girls but they were in the space of one girl and do you know how some cookouts have like a table outside of them. Yeah this cookout that was somewhere between the beach and Ardy Cardi. You had nothing it was just like we do not expect you to stick around way so I drove across the street to an abandoned parking lot which are so much of just as bay abandoned building us in down east. There's nothing there there's nothing there between the beach in Raleigh. There's nothing I I used to drive that every week to see my in-laws <hes> so it's like a it was a post apocalyptic type of vibe to it from time to the cookout in a bojangles. I'm tasting either a barbecue sandwich or corn dog or a case de no particular order. I can't believe they have enchiladas. I did not I couldn't I met against I. I'm not confirming that Lance dance with Lacey and Lance told me he may have meant case India oh because when I got there I saw Casey and just got the menu so big. I didn't want it then continue reading to see if they had on Chilanga. How is the the savage? You Sandwich solid very good eight sauce already on it. They asked me if I wanted slaw in Texas pedo and I said well. Who Do you think I am XS Peadar? Yes I'll I would have gotten it but it was very good. <hes> steam not Texas Texas. Pete is not a barbecue sauce and you know that yeah because you yeah well because it's got it's it's a you mean. Does it already have like vinegar barbecues yeah. It's it's got some sort of vinegar sauce in the meat. Okay Juno bojangles is also now serving being a pulled pork. Sandwich is on the menu. I didn't get that really and I'm sorry I'm sorry I had to throw somebody into the buses quickly. Let me do this Atlantic beach on Atlantic beach which is technically an outer bank. You Know Ah Emerald Isle Atlantic Beach there on this island well. There's a bojangles on that island. I was staying on that island for a few days and we took shepherd to bojangles. I haven't been to bojangles yet. I get to bojangles Atlantic beach again line in the <hes> the only place in the world that does the bojangles is the only place in the world that does the line where you gotta go around like getting ready to go on a ride like switches back. Oh not in a car you told my interest in the restaurant. There's a switch back yeah yeah and then you get up there and then you order and they say it into the microphone. It's awesome just wondering why they're still doing that but it. That's like an amusement ride to it was like boggle up. The first thing that threw me off is I'll get in line. There's a there's a murmur going through the line and it's that they're out of dirty rice which I wanted dirty rice I was going to get dirty rice and beans caging Pinto's. I love the fact that made its way back through the lie or editor. What are we going to do? Other direction Russia Roller coasters broke she release you across coach. She would go back to the mainland she would go to more. Those kinds of things are happening and then I'm like okay well. I don't have to get dirty rice forty five minutes later. What is when I was receiving my food at the forty five minutes later this place I love bojangles but the one in Atlantic beach is so mismanaged that it is a disgrace to the name of bojangles angles it is because lock in his cousins went and they also had to wait forty five minutes at a difference? I'd I realized that is peak season but you weren't going to Joe Bangel. There's there's eleven people in line. There were eleven people in line and some of them were like three people together as a party. We're not wasn't eleven different groups. It was like four different groups forty five minutes. Did you band together with those people in like I'm not done. They're out of dirty rice. I get up there I order. They're still had a dirty rice at that point and I didn't even ask for it the route of honey mustard payment post-apocalyptic then we get our T. of course we got sweet. Tea Jesse wanted she said bring me back unsweetened easy and then shepherd overnight. We're going to get sweet tea because we're here. When in Rome we sit down and shepherds I think I got mom's tea and he says let me take any tastes knows no takes my dad? These are all in sweet. I was like shepherd. This is just your ten year old pal. Let me take them. They're all on sweet wheat. Go back up and I say sorry. Do you put a sweet tea. In these sweet tea's okay he forty five minutes later that happened in about seven minutes. It wasn't too long okay. He feels him back up. We go back down and shepherds his dad. There still on sweet taste. He's right right. They have not put any sugar in the sweet tea. I begin to see people who've already waited forty five minutes for their meal getting up and looking at the old man walkabout. He's talking to himself. I was like the Swede is it. He was so he didn't even hear me. He goes up. He gets his tea and then there's a woman better. She's like y'all. T's not sweet. This is bad. I mean I this. This is put sugar in the Thi. This is the start of a riot in North Carolina. There's a bojangles representative. Listening Sinn help to the one in Atlantic beach man because I'm not going to go to it anymore is like I didn't. I don't WanNa ruin it. The food is so good. I mean when bojangles runs for mustard. You need to airdrop some. If I believe airdrop a manager in there I believe that it might be actual sacrilege to serve sweet tea. That's not sweet. I think those people might go to hill me to the. I think that might be an unforgivable sin right especially when they're like no but this one is and if you do it twice yes yes you go to the third level of hill sorry for that little ran. I didn't expect to do that but I was really upset very upset. I would be afraid I mean with those things happening at a boating that would literally I would be like kids.

We'll take an a three week break right Kiko three weeks without air biscuits <hes> find another podcast notified another podcast listen to old ear biscuits do that and you're in the three weeks that were not here. Don't get hooked on anybody else now and then we'll be back with more <hes> so next alas. We got one more next week in three-week-break movie back. I'll quickly go through the rhythm of tour you know because I think he can be romanticized in many ways to do. I mean we were. We're spoiled in a number of fronts. <hes> first of all I just want to brag about everybody who came out to this leg of the tour and saw us you guys were super supportive and and welcoming I mean and you know even I'm always fascinated and we're we're so analytical. When it comes to anything we create or anytime we perform like the moment were done putting something out into the world or we come backstage after something? We're immediately assessing how well it went in it it. It never fails to surprise me. How different audiences are different? Well how all audiences are a little bit different the things that as a whole they that resonate with them some audiences a really they like to cheer Somalis his like the laugh. Somebody says do both some like to talk some like to talk to us and I think we they're accused that we give if that welcome that and sometimes it's sort of a show we kinda we're l'amour open than other times and we made it a point to try a few new songs and the banner in between like we that's our moment to see if we increase something new every single time. Give take you know we talked about how when Comedians are musicians tour a lot of times they have to win over the audience and we never have to do that because the people who show up our dedicated mythical beasts so there's this comfort level and so we're spoiled on that Front we also Hal bus that we travel in now when when the bus goes a really long distance in between shows we do fly but we finally realized. Is it for most of the Galley. We didn't do this but we started to realize towards the end that hey we can we can sleep on the bus. This can actually be fun. This might be the best part of the whole thing. Maybe not for six seven young man visiting that the bunks are six six yeah in length I'm so but we are spoiled to have a bus that has nice banks and then it pulls a trailer with merchant stuff behind it and so us us in the crew we basically traveled on the bus the whole time also brought my kids lily and Lincoln along with us on this leg of the tour but just having a bus like that not having like sleep in a van or out of a crappy hotel or something well it was it. I don't know if this is necessarily the case with <hes> you know like a band that would be going around. I mean I guess they do. Stop somewhere to shower but we do got that you got that corn crop coming up. We do also these basically we as soon as the show's over we have our meet and greet. We usually don't get out of town start. You know the busters start rolling until after midnight maybe twelve thirty and then we roll into the next town we most of us go to sleep immediately or within an hour or so and then you don't set an alarm or anything you just wake up what you said we roll into town in. Most of us go to sleep now. Once the bus starts moving go to sleep and in his driving to the place roll out of town roll out of town. Yes yeah so like an hour after we leave everybody's pretty much asleep and so then you don't send an alarm you just wake up it. Some you know you go to bed that late. If you'RE GONNA BET at one thirty you know most people are gonNA wake up at nine ten. I'm awake up ten eleven and <hes> then we realize the buses no longer moving and that everyone is vacated the bus except for me. My children usually the neal's of the last off the bus I I was the last off the bus one time but <HES> <hes> most of the time you guys are get up all your shoes or still. They're they're still here <hes> but then here's Gary Our tour manager has created basically a map are like a very simple set of directions for like this is how you get to the hotel. Here's your hotel key. You do have a hotel because you're GONNA go there and basically shower and we I would just basically shower and then we'd have a couple of our go out some go out and eat lunch and then maybe you know walk around or if if they're scooters we was scoot around town for a couple of hours before we have to get back for soundcheck consigning posters for the meet and greet and all that I'll tell you denver is a good place to scooter very good. I got this river there. It's like got rapids all in it and then there's like fancy all the path. They got around this river. Yeah that was a I'd say Denver. Who was the scooter scooting highlight yeah scooting capital of the world you might say scooter low light was probably Omaha Omaha? I would say I mean more for Britain than for us. Because man man he took a tumble what I saw the whole thing slow motion now. Let me just say that right before Britain had an his incident on <hes> I was thinking about we're in Omaha and there there's also a giant River River is it was Zuri rivers coming through Omaha and like we're going all around and scooting up and down these paths and there's this little like park next to the Conagra campus there and we're like going around this pond and I was thinking thinking after we've been out for like an hour and a half I was like Kinda surprised that no one has fallen yet and I actually in my mind was like Kinda surprised that like one of the kids and when I say one of the kids I kinda throw Britain. Britain is memorial kid than where he's nineteen we we could be as dad right. I mean he's only five years older than Lincoln and I was. I'm surprised at one of them hasn't fallen on the scooters yet and literally three minutes later. I'm booed him. I'm going I didn't say anything. Did you. Dabhol I'm going over this bridge in this part is sort of arched bridge and we get to the in Britain's in front of me and it was just this change in the surface this little bump sometimes all it takes a whole because I hit headed to drop off it was a drop off and then at bump on the other side because it was like this depressed area of like bricks and he hit it and I saw him begin to lose control and then he overcorrected and then he came back then he overcorrected again and then he flew off of the scooter full speed and did a pretty athletic move to like fall down in roll into a backflip and then land in the grass but I could see on his face immediately that he was shaken all yeah I can see as I was coming over the bridge horizon where his feet in the air or you saw that yeah and then he was he was rolling tore up is elbow and his in one of his hands and it's like oh man of the moneymakers right guitarist the show I mean we're GONNA show well ahead of show the next night right because we didn't have showed that night now. Thankfully Jenna who is here was also there at the time because Lincoln I just proceeded to laugh and make fun of breath. She says her in shock and <hes> we we. We knew he wouldn't really hurt. He wasn't actively bleeding. There wasn't anything Bro. He was actively believe he was actively in fact he got blood all over his pants. Yeah he was shaken. He got he got little Pale. He's a little bit in shock but be knew that he wasn't permanently injured so we laughed and <hes> that's what guys do man and <hes> in the came in and was thinking straight and strategically that magic fluid you started porn on his on his arm like contact solution. It was just water. Oh it's just water. She used just her go now. She used her glasses cloth. Oh it was the clock and that's the what when you said I use my glasses cleaner. I thought all of that liquid up until this moment I thought she was pouring glasses cleaner. Originally I was like <hes> macgyver but that's also poison. It's I thought it was alcohol. No I think that I think that which is why was you're sitting on the side laughing. Because who am I who knows what I would have poured in his wound right. I let me pee on it. Man I think when you get stung by some asphalt you gotTa pee on it yeah just like a jellyfish but probably could have convinced that would have been funny Genita- Caravan and we we did all scoot back to a place where we could drop the scooters off because we were outside of the scooter scooter off loading area that we couldn't the APP would not accept us to stop where we were but he ended up being okay. He looked kind of cool playing the next night with a large bandage yeah around his elbow. He got some sympathy points or whatever but anyway in terms of the schedule yeah we typically do some for a couple of hours. Usually no one would get hurt and then we'd show up at the venue we do a soundcheck we'd signed posters for the meet and greet and then we just sit back stage page we do we need our food and so it ended up being like three hours of just kind of sitting around backstage and then doing the show and the whole thing starts over again but you would really get into the rhythm of I can't wait to get back to the bus and I I know that was lillies favourite part. There's something about climbing on this bus in like at some points. The bunks were three high and at some point they were too high when they're three high you you cannot sit up in your bunk. You just got rolling and roll allow like log role but we got the two they gave me a new. I still get the too high yeah in some of the crew but the youngsters got the three high and I there is something like cozy. It's like cozy hideout and you lay down in the thing and then you pull your curtain closed and you velcro it and then you and then you can take your pants off <hes>. We'll take whatever you got on off if you want to. I wasn't naked. I had the really comfortable pants though that I they left on because they're always like it's almost like a blanket in and of itself. Here's a little light in there and then you can set up your earphones and you can listen to some like a playlist to help you sleep or you can just go to sleep to the Murmur and the Russell of the bus in that that was a lot of fun but I started playing while every night I would go to sleep with. I downloaded this playlist on spotify cow deep sleep and are listening at that thing and it would it was like eight or nine hours of just ambient sleep inducing and then some pianos over top what what headphones employed for this my bose noise canceling in your headphones not as sponsor right because you can't use the airports because they would run out eventually. I actually did use airport sometime and they would just fall out of my ears and not wake up in the middle of the night searching for an airport because I'd me to in anxious that I lost it forever. So does this preclude you from sleeping on your side. I would roll all over and sometimes the whole cordwood tangle around my waistline better by ear pain when you lose sight sleeper. I'm I'm a back sleeper and a sleep my side some in there is inner ear pain where it like. You're smoshing can't listen to things in the years. That's not the worst thing about it though but I will tell you what is and that's when you're listening to an eight hour playlist must've just instrumental ambient music which is great like sinew into a deep stupor which you only do this on while traveling you don't do this at home. I do not <hes> and I'm laying there sleeping and then all of a sudden a woman says to me. Don't leave me and I'll walk up terrified and I I like look around. There's no woman woman right. There's no there's no. There's nobody talking on this deep sleep playlist much less singing. This is instrumental and I'm like I was. I dreamt that a woman's to don't leave me and went back to sleep was at Christie's voice. I was Kinda. It was a it was it was more dramatic than that. There's a dramatic dramatic. I Dunno it was it was a lot of need in it. It was it was it was very disconcerting and I don't remember dreaming anything but I I was able to go back to sleep and then became nothing wake up next day five fast forward to the next night same routine go to sleep been asleep for a few hours and then all of a sudden the woman don't leave me. She returned and this time I woke up and I'm like okay I know. Is there a ghost in here. I don't on what's going on and I'm like it's the freaking playlist in the middle of nine hour playlist this just instrumental. There's one snap sound snippet in the middle of a song where a woman says donate me and that is terrifying. It's a spotify you got to remove that from the playlist in a matter of fact I found it because the third time I was like you know what when this happens. I'M GONNA take a screen shot and I'm going to remember so I can remember where this is. It's just an Easter egg -ment it's an Easter egg that people who commit fully to the playlist experience Alana Johnson Breathing Star. It's Alana all right. I'm a plate is for you. I like to feel needed wanted now when you're in a deep sleep minutes like what I'm not leaving you girl. I'm laying here asleep. I'm. freaked me out man so then I you know I told the people at the show that night and then there was a good runner about don't leave yeah. We're really worked it. Did that's the type of Steffi Live for you know getting scared. I thought crap scared what I was thinking was going GonNa Happen is the music was going to drop out completely. Someone who's going to say don't leave me and then again because that that would that would wake me up for sure <hes> so that was a low light but I would say a highlight of the tour besides again like I said we're so spoiled by the but it was just a great audience reception and it was great to connect with so many mythical beasts and to get even more of an idea of what makes them tick and what makes them laugh. Uh it turned out to be very special for me because Lillian Lincoln were there. I didn't think Lilley was going to be able to come but then the fact that they both were able to come now I I mean we should say that <hes> lock was going to come but then in because of its go ahead like five basketball games in that in that Levin period so it would have been he would have left his boys hanging yeah he couldn't. He didn't do it but he was obviously invited and there was a chance he may come come and then and then hopefully future he'll be able to do something like that because it was so special for me my kids and of course Landau too young shepherds probably too young because they they need it for themselves. The kids had to fend for themselves but you know it just it. I realized that it was such a sweet and special time for me and Lillian Lincoln afterward when I started reflect on the fact that really the only time that we spend that much time together like every waking hour for ten days straight. The only time we do that is like if we go on on family vacation you know and a family vacation is a totally different vibes and being on tour because everybody's in a different mode when vacation that's happening but when we were on tour it's like we're in Tormo still like we're working and we're doing things and I think they they kinda rose to the challenge. I wouldn't call it a challenge but they can't a rose to the occasion of hey we're. We're part the crew you know they they rolled some posters and they went hand him out at the meet-and-greet. They didn't roll posters every night. Sorry Jinnah but you know they felt that they were treated as equals you know and I could definitely see that in their takeaway. They like reported back to Christie and Landau when we got back home how much thing enjoyed it and they talked about tour life. I was hopeful but I I didn't want to be to hope you know me. I think it is per omega back. They're going to have this perfect idea of what a tour was and is going to be the most influential thing in their entire lives so I I didn't want to go into full dad link mode with my expectations but I was so I was pleasantly surprised that it meant so much to them and they said they had a great time and I think just spinning not amount of time together. Cube really get to again when you're not in vacation mode. It was a great opportunity for us to get to know each other because you you I was able to observed him interacting with the other members of the crew in like okay when do they choose to pipe up and what do they choose to say. What are their perspectives on things? It's something that I don't have the benefit of that often and actually thought about. I got a little jealous of Christie over the years. Here's who as difficult in demanding as as it was for her to home school the kids for all those years. They've been a public school for thirty year now but in the same with Jesse it's like I got to see a little bit of aside needed them that I think Christie and I I'm guessing Jesse got to see of our kids that we don't get to see as much when it's not like you're constantly with them. You know and then at the end of eleven days then you're good you. Don't I have to do anymore yeah right but you know it just turned out to be a very special time and you know what they said that they enjoy getting dig. No you more in kind of a work mode unprompted. They were like you know what I actually have a different view of Rhett and I'm like and I told autumn about my vacation theory and I extended. I was like yeah a lot of times when you see red. It's like it's in family or if we do vacations together it's in that type of mode and it was just like the thing that I think it was Lincoln who said he was like maybe it was lilly. She was like you know what you guys. I thought it was cool to get to see you guys actually enjoy hanging out with each other. I was like we'll have you ever watched our show but I think she knows that that's this show but it's not a show I think is what she said. I enjoyed you guys enjoying join each I yeah I didn't know what I thought about in my first thought when there were GONNA go as we're going to have to like worry about them and yeah not be able to get into places because because they're too young and etc etc but I my thought was a strip clubs again yeah yeah my I've never been in a strip club Joe. My thought was no judgment. If you have eight right listen I. Let's change yourself yeah. I'm GonNa Strip club. I didn't say didn't say anything about that. I was talking about bars. You know we're eighteen enough or twenty-one up. You know some there's some establishments where children are allowed right right so but I actually think that having and I think that Britain also contributed to this as well yeah having younger people they're like CH- definitely significantly changes changes the dynamic because we have a tendency to just be in work mode like all the time now sure well. Let's go get on the scooters in in you know run around with like we would do if it was just me and you and has been just me and view and gone out and and to scoot around or whatever but I think that so that about having kids there it lightens the atmosphere. A little bit is not that we don't know how to have fun with each other. It's just that we have so many things going on that. There's at any moment we could stop and start talking about some you know work related thing or some project and you're gonNA visit creative thing. We'll do it in a very serious manner and so I think that they actually Kinda like changed the dynamic dynamic of the group dynamic him being kids just being silly yeah and kind of having this vibe a wanting them to have a good time so electing to do more things to have a good time versus. Just maybe I'll just sit in the hotel caller. Let's talk about work and I you know I do WanNa say I really do appreciate the way that you included them and you know on the it was unfortunate but totally understandable that lot wasn't able to come at the fact that you were able to extend stand yourself to include them as much as they without me asking they noticed and I really appreciated that too. I thought that was very gracious and <hes> yeah I think it was I think phone was had by everyone except for maybe Britain's elbow elbow and I think it's cool just in conclusion. <hes> you know a lot of people ask us. What are your kids think about what you do and it it was just it meant a lot to me that they thought it was fun and cool pool to be a part of something their dad was? Doing you know it. There weren't any I rolls. It was like hey this is yeah and that in isis co I yeah I do want you know and if lot can't go in the next a couple of years or whatever then hopefully Chevro- bill to like I I do want them to be able to experience it because <hes> yeah it's like there's a different field than just saying. I'M GONNA come on set when you have guessed yes. I'm interested in or something like that. There's a there's a different. It's a different thing. I'm glad they'll see we had the opportunity to give them that gift and I know I I believe that they'll remember that trip forever and that's what I hoped for so that was my highlight light but I I wanna hear about your vacation to because we haven't had a chance to talk <hes> yes so we got through with the tour I flew directly from Minneapolis to the beach in North Carolina to spend time with my wife's family <hes> her parents and her sister and husband in kids <hes> and we were going to <hes> spent a couple of days in one location a couple of days in a few today's another location so you may if you followed me on Instagram Shutout Red himse on instagram very dynamic instagram account from time to time you may have seen my <hes> what went went down on the day of July fourth. I don't know if you saw any the only thing I saw was you look at for horses which you can leave for instagram after that I was like Okay Oh you missed you missed. That was just the the warm-up story story. You didn't see the fireworks show brother Okay so I've talked about this before a talked about how my father-in-law used to get fire. There were together. He would produce the show I he would finance the show and then I would go down executive producer go down to South Carolina and <hes> by the fireworks and then spend all day like wiring them together with extra fuses and stuff and like creating like as crazy of an amateur firework shows you can get away with right well illegally in North Carolina well. It's illegal in the sense that going sixty two fifty five is is there sixty four and a fifty five is because okay no they on July four turn a blind I it turn a blind I in fact I've had the cops and when I say cups and this heading I mean C._o._p._S. drive by while while I was in the process of lighting a crap ton of fireworks on on lighting them and they just kind of like not just like Oh. It's forty one so you're American. I'm American. Oh Man Y'all have to show you. I've still got video of some of it because we were renting a one of my well. We were staying at one of my father-in-law's houses that he's got down there. They have like a you know property company. That's got different houses that you can so we kind of let reserved one of them and it was one that was on the sound that had a very long doc that went out into the San hose. This is perfect. We're going to take all the fireworks out onto the dock in light them but I'm not gonNA take all day to to get the extra fuse. I was like just give me a powerful lighter that you know is a win proof like torch kind of lighter and then we'll just figure it out in the moment you know just take some stuff out there in light it and drink some stuff together. You're not used to all that prep anymore here all right anymore and also I had lock and then his two teenage cousins and and then my brother-in-law so we had a lot of help to like get the things out on the dock and and first of all. I don't remember exactly how much money we spent on fireworks ten years ago. which is the last time I did this but my father-in-law went a little bit nuts with the amount of stuff that he bought like he sent one of his employees down in South Carolina and the guy came back and like the he had a twin cab lab or like quad cab truck or whatever like the whole back seat was just stacked to the ceiling with fireworks like this guy had been in an accident and there was a little spark? Oh my gosh he would have liked created a crater. It's not what he wasn't a smoker on that day anyway we set these things off and the cool thing about setting the fireworks off in the sound as you've got all these people watching from of course we got my family. That's up there on the DOC on the deck watching from the House and then you get everyone else it just come out to the back of their houses along the sound on both sides to watch all the fireworks happening about worn them about known by about the second round of lighting a couple of these like you know they basically come in these boxes of fireworks that have like it's just a box of the fuse on it and it has got a bunch of mortars like built into it some sometimes it's ten shots. Sometimes it's forty shots right anywhere in between basically squeezes own little show yeah we had like fifty of these banks so there were times we were lining up like six in twisting to fuses together and three of us would let him at the same time in then run and by the time we did like the second round of these things we had an audience like people like people can tell when you've done. You've gotten through with a little bit one round right. It's like last five goes off and it gets quiet and then all of a sudden all these people from wider wider and wider radius. We'll go and then we just we had an audience. That's that sound like a rebel yell now and then there's other people doing fireworks other houses within by about the fourth or fifth in first of all they were like fifteen rounds that we did but by the third or Fourth Round One guy yells out you win. It's like that's all I needed to hear is funny at that is what that is what that's specifically what you were after right you win. Not that's awesome like he said exactly what you know I. I told my father-in-law was like when I when he when the guy I said all the things that I was like we are going to have the best fireworks show. We're GONNA win firework in area you know non-professional that is funny. He's talking about the wounds because last year we're watching fireworks and from our house like from our bedroom deck we just happen to through some trees see the fireworks display of the local high school and I'm like we realized that we ran upstairs and we started this year the kids Washington but we were hanging out downstairs with some friends and we didn't you seem one fire Casino Mall. I'm sorry that that's my attitude but last year we were so elated because if I were started going off and it was mean Christina kids up there and all of a sudden in behind me I did hear in turn around and Christie's like what I'm from Kingston then that's almost down to the beach where you were his where she grow and it's like that's a i. I mean I that's just an instinctive southern thing when you see something on fire and this guy yeah well. Here's the thing it's this is. The reason is not only is better than a professional show because you're the one in control of it but like you're so close to it. Let me let me so. I'M GONNA win safe initial this is this is locked filming US light lighting one of the okay. This is all on instagram but great he's filming. He's filming the wrong part of it. He's filming the I._T.. Zibo I critiqued him. What I'll show you I'll show you filmed it even when he films the fireworks he's just below the it's? The is the peer catching off fire well. We'll get to that in a second. Ah I'll show you one that I filmed this is this is you can see a flame on there right. You see that flame yeah. What is that flame well? It's one of the things I didn't put this on instagram because I was a little embarrassed about this zooming is that's when I filmed ran back guys much rednecks out there with their shirts so kidding. That's one set oh my gosh. These are huge. That's you these are massive. You'd never seen this before. You never been president for one of these. I mean like it's a legit. Fireworks show show you thought I was talking about little bottle rockets. I didn't know that big and listen. You're right next to it like it's in fact we did we had getting sprayed we had five leftover and we took him to the other beach house which is up on the <hes> intercoastal waterway like on the river okay and there's another dock we take it out on that and I lit like six that night. This is Saturday night so July seventh. I guess just a couple nights ago and technically. I think they're illegal by that point. It did not turn a blind but we had more. You're like going out on a doc so as to the view oh you're not doing that so if it catches on fire the whole Donald is burned to the water and then it safe well it does that does help because I'll get backed up how he had to handle that fire and there was one where the wind was coming back towards us in some they don't always go as high as they should and we was one that blew up and then it blows up into a bunch of different pieces than it blows up begin in smaller explosions. I swear there was one that happened where the second small explosion on the one closest to the action because I light it then I kind of go down the stairs because this doc had like two levels and then I'm kind of Washington one came. I swear that I was getting hit with the slow sparks. It's not safe as I said on Instagram I gave a my wife made me do a disclaimer. Jesse was like you need to do a disclaimer so people don't do this. I said my wife wants me to give you a disclaimer. Do not do this unless you're a redneck is what it is what I say as cool as this looks and his fun as much fun as I'm have you hurt yourself if you're not a reddening but so fire time so Jesse first of all she says do you have a fire extinguisher anguish or light right before we're getting ready to do this and I'm like no and I was like we're doing it in over the water and she's like you need to have a fire extinguisher knows okay so they had one at this house like underneath the sink and what happens. It's after these things go off as you can see it's so hot that sometimes they just end up catching fire after the all the stuff is gone and so looking at that mean Chris or like trying to figure out what to do but we ran in the fire extinguisher. I'm sure they they basically expended. It was one of the fire extinguishers like we used in t shirt or where it was the powder in runs out real fast and then we had more fires happening to the sweetness in the boys the fire brigade to the House to get buckets and we took sound water started throwing it all over the fireworks and I will say that one of them was on fire before the water got there and had a throw it into the water but we did get Isaiah to go retrieve. It had to go to the next DOC doc the damp trash yeah so everything's good still good. We still get yeah. We're still good man. You make me nervous now and I. I'm not there. I understand I do understand that it's not it's not responsive. One of these rednecks has got to carry on but you know you gotTa have a little fun every once in a while man you got to celebrate but it was so hot I mean <music>. I forget how hot it is. We'll find out next week hotter than the fourth of July. It'd be back in North Carolina for something that will tell you about this novel related but we're going. We're going out there next week. That's right. It's unbelievably Lee high. I walked outside. My frigging sunglasses fogged up like I don't remember that happening growing up. They just fogged up completely because I was going from A._C.. But your face your California face gets hotter as adjusted. No it's not adjusted so when you go back to North Carolina Your California face just it's like oh my gosh my face so hot I gotta get rid of it and it pushes it onto the glasses and they fog up. Oh that's that's very good. If you live there all the time it's like Oh you don't you learn how to not fog up your glasses and it rained. Your face learns that it rained every day but I didn't help. You didn't care because you were already wet like you cannot just you just just go outside and your wet. I mean immediately start sweating from everywhere. That's why you said a bunch of rednecks not having shirts on but you very quickly learn I might as well and I have a journal you might as well be naked because any clothes that if you have just immediately stick to you like I put genes on to get back on the plane coming back yesterday and I just had jeans on to basically walks in my car and I was like I remember now while we always wore shorts like we were. We wish we mean you would go to work in shorts. I remember there was a point actually remember where some flipflops I remember when we were filming the documentary looking from his locklear we had a conversation. She wore jeans because we didn't want to look like a couple of walking around ensured but rice we were so hus- that was the first time we made a conscious choice only wear pants. Did you feel like a dumb ass. We're insurance. They were a little bit but I just I just quickly man. Yeah it's not you shouldn't feel that that way but we do know some about shorts just makes you seem like I don't do not enough you. What is it make you seem like a bear leg bare-legged men I don't know but if if they're pleaded and you can tuck your shirt into it then you're back? That's not the kind that ahead. You're in total. You're just you're just today. It gets so hot and IT GETS Super Hot and California's well it gets to be it'll be like one hundred ten towards into the summer here but it's never so hot that you actually feel like if I gotta get into shorts like it really doesn't it's because the humidity's differently. Do you feel like there is a way for you to feel cool and I don't mean temperature is I mean like trendy insurance shorts. I don't see an I don't see an option that I think for US good question well. I don't think I don't think we can pull off shorts. I think there are shorts out there that are trendy shorts at his don't have them and I don't know what constitutes trendy short I think they will shorter better than no shorts that I wear probably get more interesting patterns little shorter and thank you gotTa have a tank top on. Maybe visor none of those things. Can you pull off. I don't think I can't either yeah well I can't I think I pull off shorts well. I think I can pull off shorts. I don't think he can't you see my legs. It's I'm not common commenting on your legs. I'm just saying just the exposed nature of your. I have a lot of leg your thighs that I level some people. I have a lot of like I do <hes> couple of other notable things I drove around a car. That was an advertisement for my father-in-law's Dennis Dentistry the car hard that I had it was wrapped in a an ad Oh gosh did you get paid. No that's actually better it was wrapped in an ad that had my deceased grand mother-in-law on her face. Yes what yeah she was in one of the ads what what what do you mean in one of the ads how many ads were on the car well. It was like the whole thing was wrapped in your dead grand mother-in-law yeah well. She's she was she just past like a few months ago. Bush she what position edition wishy in your face she's smiling and showing your beautiful teeth really on every side of the car just she's on one side and there's another group of people like her and some other people on one side and there's other people on the other side so I was it was a was it driving ad. I means a free free transportation drought everywhere drove it all over the place yeah. That's that's did not get paid for it though and I thought it might be I thought about asking and when you hopped out. What were you wearing shorts arts music exactly I well this I didn't you were the total package brother know every morning? I woke up. I put on shorts and nothing else no shoes no shirt and I remained that way for all of the day Oh I don't I don't blame you. I'm just saying if it was not good for the brand and if it wasn't improper I wouldn't have had shorts on. You know what I'm saying like you. It's so hot. There's no difference between the inside your body and the outside of your. I know I'm just saying you don't need to protect got it in any way where people coming up to you asking you about the business oh yeah really made stuff up but they believe you because you wearing shorts and you were shirtless. So I think you kind of negated who is he shirtless man is. Is that the shirtless Dennis so hot I understand why doesn't does his work out here. There's a plumber called the smell good plumber shirtless dinner the shortage dentist CA technically. I only had shorts on but the shirtless dentists is something that I mean you're sitting in the chair laid back all of a sudden. You Got Armpit in your face. He's reaching over trying to get a utensil. Let me tell idea that armpit stinks. I know it does I don't I would put deodorant on in the morning but I might as well because you see the slippery slope hero you just start stinking. You just you stink constantly. I then you here again's long and you're like Baiter. I'm Peter I will say I had a dream about what when I was when I was on vacation I had a dream. This is really crazy lazy. I don't understand what happened. I think I may have seen some light news report because I had a dream where like the Saudi crown prince was flying a very small open hatch plane like an old style plane plane but he was pulling behind him another plane that was pulling behind it another plane yes that was pulling behind it. A boat a plane train without caboose that was pulling behind another boat that was very very large like a cruise ship style boat and then on and on and on and off in the a all in the air he was in the air. Even the boat was in the where were you. You were in the dentist. I was in an in some vantage point where I could see all it from the ground I on cliff and he was going by because I feel like I love with it but he was over the ocean. Okay your level and here's what I thought in the dream I was like man I gotta remember the details of this ear biscuits in the dream but I wasn't thinking about in dream. I was thinking about as if I've gotta remember this moment where the crown prince flew his crazy plane trae. You believe that you were you believed you were living the moment in so ironically now. I'm telling you about seeing that crown prince his plane train but I'm telling you about it one layer removed because it was a dream about telling you about it but now I'm telling you about the dream in which I thought of telling you about the plane drain wow that's weird. I think you shouldn't told I think you should've kept it in dreamland. I think you should email the Saudi prints but man you just wait when we go back it was going to be hot. I'm only packing shorts now. I can you get on a plane nothing but shorts is that like no shirt. No shoes service die kitchen. We have to wear shirt do you. Yes I've seen no signs. There's not saying lines but people shirtless no problem. People routinely get get kicked off of planes in fact shirt out people routinely get kicked off planes usually women for having overly revealing clothes now. I'm not saying I agree with this policy but just last week there was a report report of a woman who just had like a strapless tank top thing I don't know where to top and she got asked to leave the freaking plane and it wasn't even really risque and so if they do that. There's and I don't know if there's as an airplane of his airline policy but you have to wear shirt you can't if you just take your shirt off in the middle of the flight. They'll ask you to put back on sore. Could you please put your sure back on. They'll say that and then if you say he's so hot but it's so hot officer it's not GonNa work. I don't know if they would turn the plane around our from from from the flight dirk. We're going to have to u-turn go back order. You crew go to matter will not put a shirt on. I don't think that would happen you know but what about a mesh tank top you see nipple yeah. The straps are low and the nipples there on either side of them in their mind. Nepal's your nipples yeah for reasons that I'm still beginning to to try to unravel male nipples wasn't female nipples are perceived differently. I mean ones acceptable on instagram and one isn't so I would have to say that you're mechanism is the Modicum of morality. Your Mesh Nipples will probably get by on the plane commenced there beside mesh. Oh the all the meshes on the inside of the Nipples Yeah. That's what you said. I put my tanked up on backers. I think I think they would they were there would be a discussion about whether or not to approach you right when they're trying to sort out other almonds and the checks mix. They'd be like you see thirteen be busy the further back your plane is like if you're in the second plane or the third plane beam full pulled by the second plane be involved. You're going back to the plate within the less you wear so. If you're in that second boat you can be naked. I think the Saudi Crown Prince has pretty specific standards with the clinic comes to dress though I thought this boat I think that I'm not trying to get into that in any of those waters nipples civic podcast when you told me immediately pictured a plane towing a plane towing a plane in the air towing a boat that was on the in the air towing another boat which was much bigger as you said but that was in the water men if it was in the water I think water at one time last ones in the water. I think it started out in the water right. They all were they all both start in the water well. Nothing's starting to factory than their launched into the the water. Was it a water plane. No it was a little single engine open fate open-top whatever your body Princeton goggles yeah. I don't even know how rest guard that's pretty much. All happened to me a vacation. That's worth mentioning well. I hate dimissed house at home. Doing nothing wasn't even looking at your instagram. I don't know what I was doing did you. How did you occupy yourself? I'd sit in different places that you clean things O._e._M.. I'd sit in different places and eat different things that we're usually Vegan. I'm not going Vegan or anything. I'm just trying to counteract what had happened on tour. It felt good to do that crap. Am I supposed to have a wreck in effect note. I got her a relief ready. It's not ready me. This is a little bit of cheat because I'm GonNa Wreck something that I wrecked on twitter which may lower the value of this recommendation but I will expand recommendation. I will expand the recommendation as so as to make somewhat valuable. You may have seen that I tweeted about Blake. Crouches new book recurs Zhan Blake. Crouch is a guy <hes> believe he's from North Carolina and doesn't live there anymore. She shirtless on his book jacket. No plea shirted and <hes> the first books I ever read by him. He wrote a trilogy call. The Wayward Pines trilogy the First Book Wayward Pines and then there's two more and all those that was also made into show and <hes> then he wrote another book called <hes> dark matter would run another but what is he an author called <hes> dark matter which is all the wayward his very. It's all kind of like sci fi psychological thriller kind of situation. If you're into that kind of thing I am dark matter was all about parallel universes multi-diverse in navigating advocating those and just super thoughtful book in when he goes into sort of the science behind these very crazy concepts in the way that he explores them. You can get a little squirrelly sometimes when you're trying to approach things that there is some sort of scientific understanding established about these things but then you're trying to write a fictional book about them and I just feel like he strikes a really good balance and then recurs is his latest <hes> book which is all about the nature of Memory Marie and <hes> some very sifi stuff that is <hes> based on some current understanding of the way memory works but taking that to a very sort of unexpected place anyway highly recommend Blake crouch crouched in general his latest book <hes> you can start with any of these. His latest book is recurring. I recommend it if you're into <hes> sort of a wild ride for your mind. What are you doing over there? Nothing and I'm listening. I'm sorry I there was a tangle in my thing and I was just letting you do you think of fixes afterward recurs. Can you say a wild ride for your mind this very very entertaining.

On June second page at her loved ones are join a day at Atlantic beach playing in waist high water with her family, when she is suddenly pulled underwater. I was like laughing because I thought, you know, sometimes you go to the beach with your family, and they like grab your leg underwater as a joke. Not like really funny. I'll so then I start struggling, and I'm like pushing with this foot away, and I start feeling around and I feel it I go from front to back, and it's kinda smooth. So I'm like, because it's like a snapping turtle, what's happening, and then it just starts like you know, how like a dog they get a rope and they just got going like with their with their whole body. She reaches down tries to pry the shark off of her. I remember giving up for a second now. I was like, no wait a minute. I can't do that. Like that's not an option. So I start praying I'm like I'm seventeen. Like, please don't let me die like I'm not ready to die. And then my dad pulls me out of the water. Her dad, Charlie a firefighter paramedic immediately springs into action, you could tower. She was because you can see pink on the water. She was already getting pulled back. That's why dove and I grabbed her. I'm what you do. And I pulled her up you could see the short come up right with her. And then you just a media just start eating with everything you could when he was staring at me sideways. It's the biggest black. Piercing. How did you know I didn't I just knew it had my girl. He remembers fighting off the shark then carrying page the shore. He says he switched from paramedic mode, to dad mode carrying it through the water. I was holding her leg. It's time as I could to stop the bleeding, and then once I hit that shore on the dad dad, and I just wanted to take take the moment in and hold her hand and tell her I loved her over and over again. Because if you weren't going to be around for five minutes, I wanted to the last thing that you knew how much I love you. I was scared. One of the reasons I thought it's just because how completely calm she was not this. I, I remember this isn't this isn't good. This isn't right. Really aware considering what had happened? I never lost consciousness. We're kind of pain where you in page my body went into shock. So I couldn't really feel anything. I just knew it was bad pages airlifted to bite it medical center in Greenville, North Carolina less than ninety miles away, as a team of doctors worked to save her life, pages attitude is still remarkably upbeat. She's pretty incredible as she wrote in the door to the trauma bay. She was cracking jokes. I told her that I was going to need to amputate her like, and she said, okay. Can I get a really cool prosthetic? You can get whatever you want the ability to reach violence level one trauma center. So quickly would be a key to her survival. If page had to go any further who knows what was going to happen and pages of the only. Person. This is going to happen too. There are other men, women and children that's going to have an accident. What happens to them? And there was another crucial intervention per page back on the beach a stranger handed over his belt. That was used as a turn it on pages wounded leg that had not been place. I do not think that she would have lived whatever kind of turn Kate. You're using you place it above the Senate injury. And then you've got to tighten it into the bleeding stops, it's painful the patient is going to hurt, but in order to save their life you need to place it. So the bleeding stops page is now facing lots of plastic surgery and physical therapy, a hand injuries were a lot more significant look like there were a surgical knives, taking her hands. That's a very, very severe injury to not only reconstruct, but recover from her doctors and nurses say, her positive attitude is maybe the most important part of a recovery. Her charisma plays a huge role in a recovery. What kind of patient is she? The best he spun, she makes coming to work every day when I have her this is so exciting so it's legit. She really is this way she wasn't as putting on for cameras. Since pages brush, with death earlier this month. There have been two more shark attacks along the North Carolina coast, including an eight-year-old, whose leg was bitten had reported how full sharp night and nineteen year old surfer Austin Reed who was bitten on the foot route onto my lead. And that goes like, oh my gosh, I saw my on my bike sock. There were thirty two unprovoked shark attacks in the US at twenty eighteen almost half of the worldwide total the chances of being attacked by a shark or roughly one in eleven point five million while sharpen encounters continue to make news causing concerns about safety at the beach page does not blame the sharks. This situation has urged me to learn more about strikes because even in the back of that ambulance, I was like guys like don't get mad at this Chartres like the shark is fine. Can you help people understand why you feel that way? I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water, you know, that's his house. I love sharks are killed because of shark finning, even though in the US it was banned in two thousand nine but only twelve states van the sale of shark fins shorts they're not going to get a Christmas card from you this year.

It's a fictional America, where women are stripped of almost all their rights, welcome to Gilead the world featured in the Handmaid's tale. The hit show inspiring protesters, and legions of fans. Here's ABC's Maggie Rulli. Oh, wow. You recognize this color right away. Handmaid's. This is our army of red. Get Kana came. These blood red cloves are arguably the break out stars of lose addictive. Hit the Handmaid's tale. They become a simple protest for global women's rights from reproductive rights in Alabama and Georgia to equal pay and treatment in Hollywood even protesting and lend in just two weeks ago during President Trump's state visit with my daughter. Catapulting the show scenes of oppression against women and two eight cultural phenomenon I'm only reason why you're not all in an interrogation room read now. So you only Elizabeth moss is an executive producer on the show and plays its lead character June. What is it like to know that your show is sort of being used in political protests and cultural protests? Those are the women who are actually doing the work there. The women on the front lines who are out there, risking something, and I'm inspired by them. Honestly, such a selfish, girl actress and Dowd. Please on Libya, eight terrifying part of the show's patriarchy. When I see women having the strength to get those customs on and go out on the street. It practice makes me weep it makes me want to get on my hands and knees and gratitude for the strength, and the persistence, and to stand up and say, no. The Handmaid's tale is setting into stupi an American future, where a right wing undiminished religious group Gilliat has overthrown most of the government and strip women of almost all of their rights girls will serve the leaders of the fateful. The show is difficult to watch fertile, women have been rounded up and forced to breathe for barren couples of the ruling class by being raped author Margaret, Atwood sees her book as a fictional warning. We're not living in Gilead yet, but they're Gilead like symptoms going on smear widely plays a handmade who has escaped the regime in fled to Canada. I'm sometimes a freight to actually examine what the parallels are because I'm you know, in a show that to me is fiction. You want the president of the part of the story, or not actor, Bradley Whitford who starred on the politically resonant west wing for seven years. Recently joined the cast of Handmaid's. He says he was obsessed with the show. Oh, we on the set field. There's a tremendous urgency. There is something going on in a lot of right wing ideology that it has to do with misogyny and has to do with controlling women. It's understandable, that this is hitting a nerve. Karn this season. The theme is resistance. I think that I think people relate to is that she's not a superhero, you know, she's a heroine, but she's one of us, she's a woman, she's a best friend, she's wife, she's mother. And I think that, that is, what is actually ends up inspiring people. We're on the Toronto said Handmaid's tale on the last day of filming season three so I can't get this, because it looks like nothing it looks like would looks like the back of a set production designer Elizabeth Williams has imagined and created a reset for the show, including this one command Lawrence, his home. This is where last season sort of ended with aunt Lydia getting thrown off the this dare. Just like Margaret, Atwood dozen her book. She says, you know, nothing that I've written has hasn't already happened. Nothing that we build doesn't already exist. Sometimes these rooms are a little cramped. And so we open it up by making the walls removable. And we get camera angles that we would not be able to get where's the sled? It's, it's right here in the corner. There's a beat of caulking, and then the onset Pinter's sliced the caulking and pull up the wall. And then when we're all done, of course, we put it back and tie title in Bruce Miller is the show's creator and executive producer. It's scary. When you show up, I said, you type something in your living room say exterior, you know, Grand Central station night, and then all of a sudden, there's all this stuff, you know, in the just kind of have imagined it into reality. Meets Dale has won eleven Emmys, including one for best drama and writing go home. Get to work. We have a lot of things to fight for. We have three tapes, we caught up with Millerton and editing bay as he finalized, the season three premiere especially the shot the daily of this. Let me see. I've got it in. Here we go. Sean, do we want the way the emotion of Hawaiian land before the music starts? Let me slide it down a little see how it goes against. We've we made it sadder. But don't write the super watt of dialogue in this world. They don't speak very much in. They're very careful about what they say, almost all the time, stripping out things that the actress can do better with their faces or with their bodies. They don't need the words and not given a lot of lines to communicate our supplies running low. Amanda Brogel please read up a loyal housekeeper and member of the resistance, I started slowly learning how to steal moments season two. I take slick of champagne or just adding other things into sort of give more dimension to a performance. She gets out. She remember me. She know that I gave her away a powerful part of the show. Storytelling is Elizabeth Moss's first person narration the voice over such a fluid thing because sometimes what ends up happening is in the cut, you don't need the voice over because it's come out in the performance, and the in the visuals. And then sometimes it really adds something just really important and cool. We always try to make sure that it is something. That adds to the story or eliminate s- and not something that explains, I know Andrew characters ongoing colorful language. Also makes it all relatable. She's thinking you're so good at dropping enough. Bob, that all you. I'm actually, the one who sometimes we'll decide not to if it's written in the script. I'll take it out, because sometimes it can be too much or something that you lean on or uses a crutch. So I try to actually make sure that they're really specifically used really add what you need to add in that moment. And in its third season most sees her character evolving into a leader, stronger, and smarter. And she does end up doing some things that are not pretty. And she makes them choices that I think people are going to question, does to some morally ambiguous things. I was watching I the trailer for season three if I'm going to change things. I'm going to need allies view watch that thing and you're ready, like hop into the battle with June. I wish I could say resistance was as easy as getting all your girls together, and having them, we're red and storming the castle. But it's just not least they're still hope if I'm here, and I think, June discovers that and she discovers, she's really got a become one of them in order to beat this. Up next, the babbling baby, bringing home the bacon. Good bacon. Exactly. Why coming into any mix? They are the father and son duo for the talk of the town. Exactly what I was way. I met dad DJ prior his talkative Tyke nearly two weeks ago, Kingston's only nineteen months old, but he's got a lot to say. Now, father and son, enjoying a new heart to heart talk landing starring roles in a new Denny's commercial. And what better way to hash things out? Then over breakfast. Exactly.

my dog he thinks he's a cat cat rules is just like a dog well wait to see fucking dog anyone who look i'm a cat person i'm like well you've never had a dog and cats i loved but i understand that i get

because it's like a pigeon on my porch indoor pigeon indoor now we know great in his white hey because his name is great in 'cause he wasn't immediately shot right officer tried to ask gibson what what's going on but he would not answer very cat last time i looked over here look at right when asked how much she had the drink the night before they lead on thirty nine tiny saucer which is why would you said just a nipple whiskey even better when asked how much he had a drink the night before grayton gibson said quote not enough oh that's a great point you have to just go like you guys guy well neither i wanna hold my gun half a point where we're bad okay i get the marvel comics get this guy that was a big selling point like man these cops in chicago cops don't get charged for anything i don't know how it works on i know triple it does have a company wide a kind of course responders always her half price new york is not allowed to do that really why do you think they don't well it's of course not no i think the cops follow all the rules in new york coming up in five you got it yeah i remember telling you about and so you watch what is relatively new in movie that we could act like they're all like the guy they on long island they'll move to long island of course like so i love in the room end a and the guy looks like jim breuer yes i look in a room in bags open i see a little bit of money i'm like that's my fucking money but the thing about that documentary is the most chilling moment for me is win a clean copy wanna spoil it for everybody listening from me i said is when a clean cop said the first day i met this guy end yeah he was like i as he walked away i'm like that guy's a perk that guy's not a cop even though he's in cop clay just had that feeling of her my editor is like so we thought we talked about you know let's not let's not like you know be over you know anybody the next day this though patrols open a rib jerry on fucking goodfellas where they come in with because it's like take them off get out of here i tried to tell i love that they love but it is but that is unbelievable unbelievable documentary watching seventies yeah these guys eighties one guy one guy who is dirty who got another guy who wasn't dirty but they make enough money in everything and they just start shaking people don't believe and not like oh we skim a little off the top line like they were working as criminals were gonna be drug they somehow i watched the entire movie there they here i i don't even understand like a documentary about corrupt cops two things i hate corruption employees at the end of it i was like i'm with those guys they won you over it's like would they are charming it's like it's clear how they got away with a longer like scam scam casino see the main guy owns it he owns it so much yet you're like i did yeah i i can't really you're not lying what about like the big heavy metal basis guy who's like you know like i come in there and i'm like six foot six so i start their own people around hey look like a high school football breaking the law in new york but you're not allowed to get a discount as a police officer yes yes he could not imagine going into a fucking bodega you could just take whatever you want how much after drake not enough not enough enough come on let's get you a few more pops rather great into other reporters that were being with gifts and he was saying random things that did not make fencing could smell alcohol on his breath corral what a weird way to say you is trump saying that he kept talking about his dad dad in his mouth out he's yelling about a reporter just drop it starts you work there i have a breathalyzer stars are driven by phone from my writing like to give you the contacts and let you make the mascot ads right i set up the dots i lay man well being checked out by first responders the complete says the grading gibson was not cooperative and yelled profanities before he was eventually medically cleared very catholic later gibson allegedly became belligerent telling me officer and simple became a feral cat eventually quote i'm gonna knock you the fuck out that is very uncapped like right yeah 'cause they'll just do it right clinching his fifth wall staring at a firefighter the firefighter firefighter the flyers minored that with an axe i that he only but it's not open this reminds me of all times like working door just being in bars in chicago where you can see the way someone standing back that one fight fight fight is just standing there with the fence because like the head talked a little bit to the bartender for like five years and i could truly look in a crowd of people in saint louis gonna fuck and who's gonna fight that's right oh yeah like i could just tell by it's gonna fight yeah looking for it you also could totally tell which a couples are in fights that they haven't told anybody else about that's my that's my favorite should ever is when you see a woman like polar hand away from like secretly from a distance you see a woman pulled her hand out what happened there early at bars to door guys hey you guys do whatever you want and run this however you want i just want you know that was gonna be a problem about why you walk over starts like i told you guys this guy bob in the nose clairvoyant or what me and say you're welcome for the country it's football staring at a police officer when am i got firefighter i think you said firefighter a firefighter yes well that's a smart move if you're gonna start a fire would someone choose the one that doesn't have a pistol honor bell right well as the guy who's just posing for a calendar he was facing the other way shooting in real as you see when asked if he would cooperate operate with police grading gibson responded quote i dunno am i gonna be arrested adds it on them by the cops even asking just find out are you gonna collaborate so far he answered no say that as you're bending bending his arm behind him in clay cut up well yeah you gotta say that stouffer like the body cam audio you know you gotta listen up you know just like kneeling and i don't wanna blame them but you gotta know the right question to like i can't go into my son son it'd be like what do you want for breakfast no after going it'd be like do you want a bagel or do you want pancakes like i gotta get make bolero it down to fight then we could have both you could have one of these other but like i can't be like what do you are you gonna are you gonna cop it's gotta be like don't get you ready for the cops are you not now you got two choices i'm now will nominate but my dad drunk people children open then when he said yeah yeah framed the discussion ever even you're you're you're drunk friend where do you wanna go all right because they wanna go to taco bell do you wanna go i wanna go to another bar do you wanna go home yeah right yeah because if you say where do you wanna go disneyland might come in yeah you know what i mean like abject and a lot of people know this but that's a binding question if you say you're buddy when you're leaving a bar where we wanna go wagging mountain bore not gonna good imagine what you said go anywhere going say anywhere anywhere no he's going back on what he's saying you said any bouncer answer i like when you're a liar leave him alone up you say i like when you have a drunk person an open ended question and get a different answer like that where do you wanna eat you never even like i've been talking about asked about where you want it you don't you don't like me and the guy walking by me absolutely doesn't like that if they woman and brian i that's great people don't like you come on let's keep going the wrong no no no i'm not leaving your solid as you many choices choices if you say narrative here then they gotta give you an answer i heard what you were looking at no taco bell or here or a the complaint says

amount of my i'll give you fifty bucks to get out of here and so i fifty bucks says you won't get what he's gonna get out of that that's what i think the amount of money offered to trevor mooney or team money money by jeffrey offered or somebody else's wedding party transfers in tony's play along with us because they offered him fifty dollars to get at it dollars by the way i it is so little money it's almost not like worth making article you're right you're right it is it's so little money it's enough money to get you to move you're chair but like fifty dollars cash i'm also not enough it's not enough to make it into the whole thing about the money just say they offered him a little bit but not enough to make you like move without thinking about somebody like fifty bucks but you no dude fifty bucks to move just a move you're chair thirty feet in the other direction that is on that we hated about steadily easy how about you there'll be like yeah i guess i could i think that's two

after rejecting his proposals for forty three years yeah what many different story that i might wanna know what made her finally they you'll finally word out finally ater posts like yes i will do i

genuinely that's what a wedding planners favour that's where the best man is best for do the whole and he's got a punch team on the guy the guy he's no longer chronically eightyeight you're sure yeah

black button down like wearing a t shirt guy looks like the bartender so now that is having punch a ford claims the muny became quote very belligerent after refusing the money to move and felt threatened when the man stood up and then aggressive manner evidently prompting him to hit the support hit him and suppose it self defense meanwhile team mooney alleges is that these irate groomsmen held onto him hit him three times in the face further contending that quote someone grabbed my belongings in through them across the beach that's sure that's that's basically what he went out there with the groom let me know what you name it they hid millions across the whole time he's punching him he's saying you could add fifty four i pressed the fifty dollars into the bloody mess that's all you get me and i remember the natural or another you'll be like okay now you can't move now you can't leave me she know what it now you can stay that's great wedding photo the new guy in the middle

Caddie Special: Sam Saunders

"The now on the t. it's mattie and the catty. Here's berry and michael college of batty mcadoo. This is anti mattie show catty only this week but there's no no need to worry because i got very special guest with me who i've known for a long long time but we've never got to sit and just like chat for a while which is amazing amazing because in just a few days we're recording this on wednesday september fourth and next tuesday the the tenth of september will be a day that we celebrate ninety years of arnold palmer. Who is his grandfather it. It is my distinct pleasure to say hello to good friends sam saunders what's happening in my brother not much. Is it talk to you. Thank you for <hes> for having me on honor. He had no man otters vine dude. We've known each other for so long and have seen each other. We've been on the golf course together with you. Plan plan to meet caddy and it's like this in a long time coming to be able to sit and talk and happy to report. Both of us live in florida on the east coast. Both the bus good to go as far as work. Hurricane doreen left us alone right yeah. We're not too bad. We're kind of just writing it out here in atlantic beach right now <music>. I'm i'm that guy that you see going down to the beach <hes> running around in the background. I love watching these things roll through. I mean we take it seriously but <hes> you know we've been pretty lucky so far big time you know what i blame this whole thing now for everything that was in florida or wasn't in florida. I blame the weather channel they. I'll never forgive two nights ago. There was somebody stand on the beach. There were two foot waves and this person was like the catastrophic waves are starting talking to two feet and then a surfer ram behind him. Just take a bathing suit and no shirt and i was like why are you putting out fake panicked like that it crazy surfboard yeah i mean i'm born and raised already and i've been through a lot of these storms and we've seen some bad ones wants but you know it you kinda i i. I worry that someday when we actually do get a bad one. You know we're all not gonna take it as seriously as we maybe should definitely thinking about those people down in the bahamas because that's no joke i mean that's all my god. Their lives were lost home. I mean every home down there. It was destroyed so you know when when it's time to get serious it is but i agree you know sometimes. They're they're showing what six feet of storm surge is. Gonna look like here and that's just not going to happen so we <hes> you know i it's tough. You don't wanna you don't wanna down play but at the same time yeah it's <hes> watching people go into panic mode. That doesn't do anybody any good well. That's the part of the problem that was always part of the problem for me was that we weren't seeing anything coming down to the bahamas pictures wise when it was going on and all we had was people stay a. and beautiful weather up and down east coast saying what might happen and the possibilities are and that's just i don't know just drives me nuts but yeah not to take anything away from anything horrible that happened in bahamas and at just to let everybody know full disclosure. Look my my sister-in-law brother-in-law live in freeport and i have been in contact with them. They are okay <hes> and thankfully. I don't know how but their house was okay as well so moving on from the hurricane to mm-hmm another you have been through some shoulder. I don't even know how to describe our one yeah trauma and drama. That's a good one world. Did you do what you did to your shoulder. And how would you explain that to everyone well. Here's the thing i i just know me as golfer but i grew up in orlando and i've always been a little bit of a risk taker. I mean i grew up skateboarding surfing irving <hes> wake boarding water skiing just jumping out of trees climbing stuff i just at i've always been an outdoors guy and i always liked to <hes> like to do exhilarating things and you know when i lived in colorado for six years i ski and snowboard all the time mountain bike i just i like to get outside right and live life. You know it's very important to me. It's how i itala always lived my life. I don't wanna i love being golfer but i don't wanna just be golfer. You know i i like aac. I like having a well rounded life and <hes> you know when i was back home here. I was riding one wheel which is like a electric skateboard board basically with a snowboarding on land when we have ways in florida and you don't have snow but you want to get outside and ride on a board and feel like you're surfing or snowboarding. The one wheels the way to go. I mean it's an awesome awesome. I'm fat too right yeah exactly but pretty dangerous and <hes> i wouldn't recommend going twenty miles an hour on the because <hes> the board decided it didn't want me going that fast and it launched me off and <hes> i landed on my shoulder and basically exploded my clavicle collarbone. <hes> i had a open fracture so the bone actually kind kind of popped out <hes> i had to have emergency surgery basically the next day and spend a couple of nights in the hospital but <hes> i'm feeling great. Now i my arm. I can't really move it yet. I got a couple of weeks left of of not moving my arm and then i got eight weeks of physical therapy nassar that and and i'm hoping to be able to come back and play it off in january. <hes> you know hopefully get a few spots out on p._j. Tour but i'm i'm making the most of it you know i i don't i'm hurt. I'm not broken. I've been active in working out trying to <hes> spend as much time as i can get my myself better ready for when i get the chance to come back and <hes> <hes> you know i i kinda. Look at this as a positive for me in these sound because i <hes> you know our schedule is so grueling out there. We play so much golfing. We're going all the time and i i tend to neglect certain things that i you know shouldn't whether it's my body or my my my health and i've had rough year healthwise. I've been sick a lot. I've had an infection in my mouth that i've i've got a tooth. Actually i'm having surgery tomorrow morning. On a on a tooth rhea had an implant yeah when i was like seventeen years old <hes> and it sailed and i've been easy to get it out for a couple years now but just haven't had the time to do it because you need to be basically home for about a month and that just doesn't who knows where it did stubbornness comes from route one but uh you know i'm i'm finally getting the time at home to enjoy my family and and you know take care of myself and you know look forward to coming back stronger longer than ever i i i think for the first time in a long time when i when i get back to golf i will actually be a hundred percent which <hes> which is gonna be fun to see what i can do that and for people who want to see what the shoulder looked like on instagram sam salter sam saunders golf. I'm just saying thank goodness. It's it's an x-ray because if that would have been all color gas i mean i popped right up after i fell and i my wife watch me doing. She was so mad adamy. 'cause i'm full disclosure. I was not wearing a helmet which is really everybody is not worth phone. Zeal lebron doesn't so yes. I i <hes> i will wear a helmet next time but popped up and said all i'm fine. I'm fine and she said no. You're not <hes> we've done on my shoulder and <hes> let's just say it looked like football keno plus out of there it was not it was not good. I'll fight will ferrell. Oh you know what she's i get better i. I'm a i'm a helmet on but i'm gonna get right back on that one wheel. I may not go as fast but i'll <hes> you know. You can't be afraid of things like that see. This is the hardheadedness bra. This is what i'm talking about but i will say this about golf. This is what i love to even when you said you spend so much time grinding and then playing at say. Let's say eighty five percent ninety percent. 'cause you have those injuries and you'd like i just gotta play through it because i want. I gotta be out there. It's amazing what happens when you are forced not to to be allowed to go out and play and there's nothing you can do about it and you learn how much you miss the game right. Oh absolutely you know that's the thing i you know physically yes. I feel like i'm gonna come back better. 'cause i'm gonna have time to you know get rid of those problems that have been bothering me but but mentally you know it's it's exhausting. I played nine tournaments commits in a row this summer you know by the by the end of it. I was playing golf with the results. Were were not there. I was just kinda struggling on the weekends. 'cause i've just so so you're so tired of playing that many tournaments in a row and it's not that you're not enjoying it but you just you mentally fatigued and you and you don't focus like you should enjoy yeah. That's it's hard to enjoy it and then any kind of little mistakes will set off because you're like. I'm already at the end of my rope. <hes> exactly and you can't do that when you're playing your best and your you know the tournaments were i've played my best and had chances to win you. You're you're just level. You know don't get too excited with birdies. You don't get to down with the bogies then and when you're fresh and you feel good you're able to to have that mentality but when you're when you're tired and you're worn out you just. Are you know you act like a like a ten year old kid. You know you get real excited. When something good happens then you lose your mind when something go your way not that bad. I know i know what that looks like. I always always wanted to ask you this to dude. What in the world made you decide to. You know what professional golf i'll do that like that's almost the you you are in the exact same boat as like what gary nicholas would have been in. Where was there anyone around you. That was like buddy seriously. You bowling darts a lesson. Hey you you'll appreciate this. I mean i was so let the twelve. I was probably twelve or thirteen years old. I was playing a basketball and i was. I was about five eleven thirteen eighteen year old so i was i was tall ios big and i was good at basketball so no i was not going to be a pro golfer. I was gonna play in the n._b._a. But unfortunately <hes> as a four man. There aren't a lot of <hes> six foot four guys in the in the n._b._a. I wasn't going to happen so the next best sport. I was good at golf. I never really stated in a stoller <hes> <hes> i have a business mind but i don't have the patience for spending hours and hours at school so <hes> so golf was it and i good at it and i think the best thing and i had going for me unlike the nicholas boys as i didn't have the last thing so i was able to fly a little more under the radar at times <hes> and and those those guys i mean i'll tell you what people just i. I look at guys like craig stadler who made it out there and had success on the p._g._a. Tour and you know gary the necklace doing what he did even though to most people they would not look at that as a successful career just getting out there i mean nobody's going to hand it to you at a certain point and the fact right you know they they were able to to make it to the level that they did and and <hes> you know i i feel i feel fortunate that i've been able to play for five years on the p._g._a. Tour because you know there's thousands and thousands of people out there trying to make it and just because my granddad was arnold palmer just because you know his dad was jack nicholas it didn't it didn't really matter you know he had to go out there and perform and i've had to go out there and and and just beat guys and that's the only way you get out there so i'm glad that i've been there and hopefully we'll be there air for the duration of my career yeah. The irony is that the golf ball doesn't know the golf ball knowing who your family is from yeah. I wish i wish magic but unfortunately it's not and it's cool to that we because we're so deep in the game that that we under we measure success in a different way so you look at like the statler son or tway son or nick. Listen listen or you and go a lot of people would go. Oh man it's so much easier and i say bull bleep that it's a harder because once people figure out who you were now they start heaping expectations on you that you would never put put on somebody who came from wherever yeah no i mean there's been weeks where i would love to just be a normal guy guy and not really answer any of those questions and do all that but in the big picture it's been. It's been an amazing thing for me. I've been i've been given so many great opportunities and gotten to to be around so many great people who just love my granddad and and loved you know who he was and and they respect what i've been able to do now so it's been it's opened some doors for me no question so i can't i can't downplay the benefits of it but yeah absolutely there's times where i'd love to just be able to go out there and play golf and and just just focus on that because even the bad week sometimes you're reminded of it and you feel like you have have to do a little bit more than than the average guy on tour but <hes> you know with with with a little bit more responsibility. Sometimes i get. I get a little bit more opportunity already so it's you know everything's a trade off and i know i consider myself extremely lucky and more than anything else. I just didn't extremely lucky that i got to grow up around my grandad who was one of the best players that ever lived and learned from him and get to become friends with him and spend time with him like i did because <hes> you know. Everybody just just got to see him on t._v. And as as the figure that he was but i got to i got to have this personal relationship with them where where i understood what he did and he understood shit what i did and <hes> you know not many. I don't think many grandfather grandsons have the exact same career and can can really relate on that level so yeah it was <hes>. It was really cool. I i. I'll cherish those those times that i got to spend within forever man when he was a little kid because kids don't understand fame. When do you remember going wait a minute my grandpa that's me like do you remember a moment or something something where you were just like hold up my grandfather people i think it was i you know my first memory of kind of being like wow so this is a this is a really big deal when i was about sixteen years old and i was getting to be a pretty good player high school golfer and i played in the sunny hannah amateur amateur up in johnstown pennsylvania which is really big amateur event. I mean you. You know. Obviously there's the u._s. Amateur the northeast and <hes> the the you know the southern the western sunny in amateurs right up there with all those i mean these are the best these are the best college players best amateur players in the world <hes> and i was playing are there and and just going through the clubhouse and seeing all these pictures of him and then having all these older guys that were you know the best amateur players in the world that guys that i looked up to in respect they always wanted to talk to me and they always wanted to talk about my granddad and i kind of hit me at that point like wow. These guys that i think are so cool and so good at golf. They're coming up to me and they just wanna talk about my granddad all the time and these were these were great players so it just kinda hit me how much respect he she had amongst the best players in the world. Whether it's junior golf amateur golfer at a professional level i mean he was he was the guy that they all look to and and it just kind of made me realize how lucky i was to to get to to learn from them and at that point i think i tried to stop being quite so hard headed when he gave the advice that i was a little bit more see. That's what i was gonna say. Sixteen is the old that's a long way. You know to be to to for it to take that long for it to finally kick in knowing and the guy who has a twelve year old at home who now thinks. I don't know nothing like i'm just dumb yeah. I'm not stupid guy in the whole world. I can imagine like where everybody else was going. Hey did you hear what your grandfather you would. I think what does he know. He don't know third and you like were telling me what to do. Grandpa yeah there with some tough love at times where i was. I was like i don't wanna hear this. I'm just gonna do it my way but he he created a little bit of that monster to that yeah yeah he. He made it very clear. That wasn't listened to anybody other than him and i took that very seriously to a point where i said well. I'm not even gonna listen to him so so but i figured it out eventually i once i once i got in my early twenties. You know really needed to to start making a career this thing we that's when we really started working together and i listened to everything he said and took took in as much as i possibly could but it was <hes> you know it. It's tough up as a young kid growing up you you wanna just go out there and have fun and enjoy it and i. I was very fortunate that my parents they almost close. I don't wanna say shielded me from it all but i was i was very naive to to whom i was and and the level of success that he had i just i grew up in normal okay and orlando florida playing with my buddies outside you know i didn't think that i was any different than anyone out there and not you know we all put our pants on the same way and and <hes> i was lucky that my parents you know raise me in a way to to not think that i deserved anything different than anyone else you gotta go out there and earn it and work for it so <hes> i'm fine blood. That's also that's also that blueblood mentality man yeah big time yeah. You gotta be that way. You know it's <hes> i. I don't don't believe anything's handed to you got to go out there and work hard for it and now it's fun for me to get to be raised in two boys and my my ten year old is is at that point where he do you know he wants to be a pro golfer and he wants the n._f._l. And oh yeah undesired he's either going to be a pro golfer <hes> major league baseball player or playing in the n._f._l. I mean and i'm the last thing i'm gonna tell them. You're not gonna make it because you want your kids to strive dream whatever they want but now you're at that point. We're saying hey buddy listen you. You may be big and fast but the only way you're going to be better and everyone else out. There is to work harder than so you know those those conversations that you get to have and explain to them that i didn't. I didn't make it on the tool or just by wanting to be out there. You know you gotta gotta put in the time. That's so funny man. Well you know what at least for are both your son and from my son. Neither of them said basketball so that's good because you got bad challenge verdict down. I can introduce you to spud webb that don't mean you gonna be him so we don't have those genes we know but yeah and that's the thing that's so cool about your about where you came from is that it's like people would think oh my gosh. There's no way that you could have a normal life but that's not necessarily true you. Did you had a pretty regular life growing up now as you got into golf later then it was when you became appro then you then. It was one of those things where you go. Oh yeah you know what looking back man. I'm going to have to grind really hard to to to be able to get where i want to get but that that's that blue collar work mentality of i'm curious to who was the who's the coolest person that you think you've gotten in to meet so far kind of through that connection. There was one person that even made you rely. Coach can't believe your submit. I that's a that's a really good question because i've gotten meet some some really cool athletes. Whether whether it's you know i've met wayne gretzky michael jordan <hes> gosh. I've gotten to to meet some really some presidents of i've got picture sitting on <hes> president. <hes> george george bush forty three <hes> sitting on his lap as a little kid. I've met really so yeah yeah. I mean it's <hes> it's been been pretty cool to to meet some people i have but i i honestly i. I've never forget when i was. I was twelve years old and i was huge basketball fan. I mean i had i had a you know you have your notebook full of cards that were regular collect and we you know we trade basketball football cards and then i had my michael jordan collection and i had about sixty michael jordan cards in a little spiral three ring that i was i was keeping all these cards and i was a huge michael jordan back and <hes> when i was about twelve years old he came in played at at the arnold palmer imitation and he played with my granddad and the program and i remember braga to go out on the first heat and meet them and i just i remember shaking his hand. A little twelve year old kid wrapped completely around. He's basically shaking his own. Don't hand it up at him. I mean it was incredible. So i'd say that you know at that moment almond meeting michael jordan. I was completely geeked out. I was always biggest sports fan as you can get meeting somebody. That's so awesome now have you. He's a huge golfer as as you know. Have you gotten a playground for them. Since i haven't no i have not gotten to play wh- michael so i i love the do that some day but you know he's he south florida lorna garman guy now so we'll <hes> we'll have to see if i can run into each other at some point but yeah com jamba too so. I can't afford to gamble with him. I am but i i feel a little bit. I'll get hooked five bucks five bucks. You know why because if you beat him out of the five they you have to get him to sign that at five dollar bill because you know you'll never spend it. You got to clarify on the first tee though when you say hey yeah let's play for five when i say let's play for five dollars lose. That probably means a lot different. I'm gonna have to say a five dollar bill right yeah. There's a decimal point right after the five immediate. It let you know some bad bets out there when you don't clarify how many zeros behind that front number let's play for five and when you get to the end. It was like all right so you're down fifteen jeez. Wait what no man i was. There's only two zeros heroes and there's a decimal point in my five on the exactly so funny i would. What's the what was the best part what's what's the best part and was the hardest part about being arnold palmer's grant grandson the best apart honestly the best part for me was was when i got to i got to. I knew him like nobody else else. I mean at the end of the last ten years of his life he had. You know you know what it's like. When when you meet these world famous celebrities they've got a very small group of real friends because everybody wants to be your friend. I mean i hate to say it that way but everybody wants and and and maybe maybe a handful of people really wanted to be his friends so that they could be as friendly rest of wanted to be his friend so they could tell everyone. I'm friends paul farmer bomber. You know that's just how they wanted something yeah yeah exactly that's real yeah that's real and he had a very small group of people that i think or or truly his his friends and and i i honestly feel like the last ten years of his life. You know i was i was an old enough guy and we we understood each other and i was one of his friends. I mean i could talk to him in a way that that nobody else. Could you know i didn't i'll be real. I didn't have to kiss his ass. You know what other people did and i didn't. I was i i said things to them that you know i stood up to him at times and i made i made fun of them. Sometimes to his face and we're able to you you know we were able to needle each other back and forth and not many people do that. Roe i cherish that memory with him where where we were actually close and i was one of his guys. You know that you to write like oh yeah all the time all the time. He wanted me to yeah you know i i told him i knock him out one time ooh oh he was he was three were just being him. I was in my early twenties. He was so hard on. I mean he just he he could. He couldn't say anything nice. I mean it was it was all out of love. I don't think he was being seen. It was all out of love and you're in your early twenties so he had to show you testosterone sorolla to boy yeah and he he just he want. He knew he knew what i was going to be dealing with because of him he he knew what he was setting me up for <hes> <hes> if i if i was going to be a pro for do what i was going to be getting into sometimes so he he had this you know this idea that he needed to help me get some thick thick-skinned because i was going to deal with some some stuff sometimes that was going to be tough and i was on the range one time with down at bay hill and he just he had you know we're working together and it was great and i was probably twenty two years old and he <hes> he was just focused on the and we were we were really making some good progress out there but as as always happened people would come and want to talk to them and take pictures and sign autographs so and he always obliged so this group of people from that were saying saying logic bay hill came up and started talking to him and he was signing autographs and taking pictures and then he started talking about me and he said yeah this kid. He's got some talent but he's gonna end up digging ditches. He doesn't listen to me. He doesn't want he doesn't wanna make it. He just go on and on and on and on you know just kind of laughing happen. I'm going along with it and although slightly annoyed right then finally he really takes his next level and he gets up in my face and he puts what's ethics fish over and he says what are you gonna do boy. If i pop you in the nose you know a very old way of saying that but if i pop you in the nose and in front of this group probably six seven people that are complete strangers. I got right in his face and i said i will knock you out and i'm in may you may have used an explosive words. I'm not going to say here but i said that to them. I told them i was gonna knock him out and <hes> he looked right at me and i swear he tears of joy in his exactly what he was tested me and it was exactly what he wanted me to say because you know he was waiting for me to just kind of crumble up and say i'm sorry i don't know sir and you know i i always showed him utmost respect act but in that moment i knew he wanted me to to stand up to him a little bit to show him that i had a backbone even the strangest too that's probably why he was most proud yeah exactly and they all. I think they all were kind of shocked like oh my gosh what was it goes down right now but he he grabbed my shoulder and got a big smile taste and he said good. That's what i wanted to say and i said i know and that was kind of a changing honestly a little bit of a changing point for us. He he kinda. It was at that moment where he basically said. You know what you finally understand. Why <hes> why i am the way i am too and we had a we had a mutual respect from that point going forward man. That's all what do you miss the most about this getting to talk to him getting getting the hang out laugh with them and and and see 'cause advice to you know i've had plenty of times where i'm driving back from golf tournaments or or flying somewhere sitting in an airport and i'm alone and i you know i used to always call him. I call my other granddad. <hes> bob saunders my my my dad's dad because i get great advice from both of them and they both passed away way <hes> you know within two months of each other actually and it just they were. They were role models to me. They were <hes> men that i looked up to and it's it's tough not being being able to pick up the phone and call <hes> either one of my granddad. You know just just just to have that advice and just just have that person that you can you know bounce ideas ideas off of and <hes> that that's that's definitely the toughest part. I'm one hundred percent behind you man. I'm just i feel the exact same way about my own grandfather man because that's <music> half remember all the lessons but you know you remember all the times and you remember all the things you say so you don't necessarily need the conversation but it so you just miss actually being able to hear that voice yeah or else or just being able to have them close by to go. I see you and i see where you're at. We're going like just that sometimes. They didn't even have to say anything just the look that they would give would be fantastic. I'll never forget so i'm caddying for kevin stroman filming and we're at the arnold palmer invitational writing and he comes up on the driving range and my little guy was out there and just major was. I don't know maybe thirteen fourteen months old. He had me just start walking not too long ago and right before i came out major was hitting shots on the driving range and i freaked out because i was like oh my gosh notice kids aren't supposed to be up here like i'm totally get drawn looking at that's exactly yeah finally get kicked out by this day was cutting and your grandfather's wrote up and just looked adding adding some swing saum hit the shot and then gave me the thumbs up and that was it and i was just like it was the biggest sense sense of relief also the biggest moment of pride. It was just like the greatest of emotions washed over because in that moment to you know he could have just been like you know. He's not supposed to be up like it went from. I know i'm supposed to be in trouble but it was that that it was a grandfatherly moment which was phenomenal man. It was phenomenal all right so going to college now. We need to find out more about you and your teams pros who you do with football season who you follow. Who's your team 'cause orlando. You don't have a team right so you know go. I i was happy to watch the golf season. Come to a sad. I couldn't participate but now we get to go over for a week though yeah exactly no off offseason yeah but you know now now the college football season started. It's definitely my favorite <hes>. It's it's my favorite sport to watch john t._v. <hes> i'm big. I'm a big florida gator fan born and raised here. Obviously my dad actually was a walk on backup kicker florida because he didn't make the golf team so you know we we've got. It's just in my blood. The florida gators are but i'm also big clemson tigers fan because i went to school there so i've got pretty good options yeah yeah. It's not bad i would no. I would have a tough time i know i know this isn't going to happen because i know clemson's probably going to be in the national. Don't championship this year. I'm not so optimistic about my gators but if they were to ever make it in that matchup i i it would be a tough call for me. So <hes> you know i got. I got plenty plenty of good football to watch this year. I'm a big pittsburgh steelers fan ben rothlisberger friends so i always offer yep. He is played with me. The <hes> the program at the unabomber invitatinal couple years ago and <hes> i haven't been in touch with them as much lately but i'm always always pulling forum and the team's success and and and you know honestly now being a jacksonville area native living here in atlantic beach <hes> we've become good friends with one of the <hes> offensive coaches <hes> for the team so we you know you always pull for that home team so i'm definitely optimistic and hopeful that the jaguars have a good season. <hes> 'cause you know you. You know it is when whenever you're in a town that has an n._f._l. Team or any sports team and they start having success brings people together and people excited and area so i love love love. Seeing people do all and excited about the jack success. You're welcome. You're welcome just wanted to say. You're welcome because you know the eagles fan yeah yeah. I bet you all right yeah yeah we are. He's <hes> he's a good leader and i think that's i think that's that's really important for <hes> for any program whether it's college football team n._f._l. Teams or you you know you need a leader out. There and i think paul's going to be a a good leader for the jackson. <hes> you know you look at what trevor lawrence is doing for <hes> for clemson i i think he's despite being as young as he is. He's poised he's he's you know quiet and and he's good so it's the harry. That team is just a little bit yeah. I'm telling you if they cut his hair not going to be as good no. We're in that hair. There's something some kind of our in his hair clay matthews if i mean he did you know every time you see one of those guys adams who i bet he's good looking at hair yeah yup i was i was gonna ask 'cause we joked about the season of the be the tour season which has a week off before it starts again after korn ferry knows and whatnot. How do you feel about it because it's i. I laughed at the fact when they were like hey this is going to be great because we're going to end the season and not have to compete with football but they forgot to tell everyone well kind of because the season actually is starting the second week of the enemy yeah it it is a lot of golf and and you know i don't have the answers there. There are a lot of really smart people out there trying their best to to make it as as good a schedule as they can and and there's big business side of things as well and the bottom the good thing is is the p._g._a. Tour is is in a mode of great success and they have a lot of sponsors and they have a lot of opportunity to have golf tournament so so we have them. You know which is a great thing you you would hate to be in an opposite position. Where are we can't find enough sponsors and enough t._v. Opportunity to only have twenty five tournaments a year. That would be a real problem playing too much. Golf off is a good problem to have but <hes> but it is tough you know that that if you're one of those top fifty guys in the world that can really pick and choose your schedule <hes> and play the majors and the w._g._c. events and the invitationals and then kind of pick and choose the <hes> the quote unquote regular p._g._a. Tour events and and i and i use is the word regular and not smaller because i hate. I hate when any p._j. Tore event is categorized as as not a big event. I mean every single week <unk> out. There is a huge event and every single week out there. Somebody's got a life changing opportunity so <hes> i don't like sometimes when when certain events or devalued <hes> but it's tough to to to think about playing the twenty twenty schedule here in you know september i basically it is it is a tough. It is a tough thing to grass. It's tough to explain to people i. I wish you know personally. I wish that the start of the twenty twenty any season was was it. The sony and hawaii like used to be <hes> the wraparound schedules tough for for me and for any any guy out there. Who's you know whether you got a family or not. <hes> that that adds a whole nother element when you're playing golf leading into the holidays <hes> but you know even the young guys it it. It's tough to just play a thirty five golf tournaments a year if you if you if you have to especially guys now coming off if you had a full season on the korn ferry tour and you went in the finals you there's a party like you said when you played nine inroad. There's a party you that goes but i'm playing good golf. I gotta keep going but mentally exactly on a friday or saturday on the thirteenth or the fourteenth. Oh there's that little guy on your show going. Why the blank did you. What are you doing yeah yeah. Can we go take a movie starring in seven minutes we can be at it's so true and i tell you what you're starting to see a little bit more of it now. The korn ferry files guys have started to realize 'cause there's there's there's an excitement to the fall series about seeing all these new fresh faces guys that are coming and out of college also the korn ferry tour guys that are finally you know earned their p._j. Tour card but they're starting to realize that that you know once you've got your p._g._a. Tour card locked up those korn ferry. Finals are are great opportunity if you need to get it back but some of the guys that were in the top twenty five didn't play all the events because the the fall series has become more important for those guys playing out of that new category because that's when they're going to reposition themselves through the also also that when january does roll around they they're getting into those tournaments because all of the bigger names start playing and if your way down on the list of the priority rankings of the korn ferry tour one through fifty if you're if you're in that back half you might not be getting starts to come january february march. If you know chef awhile yeah yeah yeah. It's really important to to rather focus rather than focusing on your you know playing well in the korn. Ferry finals is if you got your your card you gotta save your energy and you gotta go out there in the fall and and make hay because that's really going to set you up for the for the you know the calendar your season seaman. You're talking like an experienced guy not like one of a little bit on a twenty two year old guys. I'm just gonna keep playing correct. The old veteran at this interesting creature inhabits the flat arid plains of many an automobile dashboard the bobblehead it's most agreeable and will not along to anything despite having no brain function but when the bottle of head here's how gyco not only saves people money but also gives them access just to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone or not even more grisly because he knows you should switch because yes switching to gyco is a no brainer you can get whiplash. Is this true. Do you have a head cover on your driver. That was made from an alligator. You call it yourself or is that bull well. That's true it. Contractually i don't use that head cover because it doesn't say calloway on it and i like to keep people happy that keeps me happy so <hes> i use as a callaway head covered but i have alligators. Don't write checks no they don't they do not but i did komo. I'm sorry to all the people out there but i hunted it. It was a sport. I <hes> but my dad taught me. I grew up a little florida redneck to you know i from a a young age though my dad if you're going to hunt and kill something you gotta eat it and you gotta use it so i eat the gator. I got his head here. <hes> <hes> you know it is delicious <hes> and and i use all of ladder for all kinds of different things my wallet that i will carry for the rest of my life is made from that gator so <hes> yeah a little bit of did a little bit sport hunting there yes no. It's not sport if you're eating it. That's that's right yeah. That's it's true. I tell you what he's been ten and a half foot gator <hes> about five hundred and fifty pounds so it was <hes> it was fun. It was something you you know well i don't. I don't think i'll probably do it again. Not that i'm against it. I just i once in a lifetime opportunity and it was cool to do but <hes> no. I'll be using the yeah. I'll be using my head covers from this point on for sure we gotta find if there's a way to get the callaway logo on the gator head cover i could do that. I bet i bet if they'd make that happen. If we wanna do that would be awesome yeah awesome debbie fantastic and the other thing that i read read <hes> and i want to know if it's true if the sport of golf had never been invented so there's no such thing as golf and there's nothing that goes along with golf. Would you do for a job. It's a that's a tough question <hes>. I don't think i that would be playing a sport. I i mean i guess golf in general isn't this so building. Golf courses designed golf courses not in the picture because that thing i so i would. I would be working. I probably would have started by career doing some form of construction or manual labor <hes> because i liked getting getting dirty. I like working with my hands. <hes> and i would have tried to work my way up in that system but i've always had this weird business mind i. I don't know what it is is but i'm i'm always looking for opportunities where i feel like there's a there's a chance for things to get better whether better whether it's in like retail or or you know stuff around the house i just i've always got ideas. I've always looking for that next billion dollar idea. I'm an adventure so i'm thinking i would invented something or develop. Some type of business that you know met a need that was out there for people and i. I'm kind of working on something right now actually. I'm i can't really tell you what it is but i'm i'm not just sitting here. Yeah i know i'm sorry but i'm not just sitting here <hes> waiting to to get better and golf. I yeah no. I'm working on my health. I'm i'm trying to you know work out as much as i can get stronger while i'm in a sling a lot of the strongest yeah. I'm gonna have the strong stomach on tour man. I'll tell you what really going to have yeah. I might not have a keg anymore. I might turn it into the big fat. I don't know we'll see what are you doing. I didn't go fast working at it. I got the time so you know what i think i might as well try having a you know having some muscle strength frank. I'm working on that but i'm i'm actively doing other things because you know i realized that at some point whether it's through an accident like this or or by choice i might not be able to play golf for the rest of my life and i'm not unfortunately i haven't made fifty million dollars on the gulf war so i'm not set for life so i'm i'm always thinking about you. Know what am i gonna do to support my family when when i can't do it on the golf course anymore and i obviously plan on not fat not being an issue i i plan on being able to play for the next you know five ten fifteen years if i want to but there may be a point where i can't and or that i don't want onto and then you gotta have you gotta have wind up yeah exactly and i i'm not gonna. I'm not just going to sit around and wait and say okay well. I'm not playing golf anymore so now what because then you're way behind the eight ball you know too late 'til i. I'm working on some things. I'm excited about some business opportunities that i've got <hes> you know outside of just playing golf so i'm. I'm you know dollars here. I have a billion dollar idea. You can help me with this. Change everything it will save it. Potentially could save lives sarcasm font think about about social media just think about text messaging think about how many messages have been misconstrued because there's no no such thing as sarcasm font absolutely you gotta listen. There's certain text messages that if you don't put an exclamation point at the end i i mean you're you're done. It's the smiley face. Yes exactly you're right. I like it. What we know worth yes us now. What would that be worth if we came up with a font that everyone recognized as sarcasm. I listened billion people out there that can do that. You got the idea now. You just got to find the right person to put it on paper. You have what you know more people than me. I don't no no you're. You're networker man. You're out. You're talking to people. I'm just chasing all white golf all around now for a little while. Though now you get to just drive your wife crazy sitting at home at the kick me out yet now. She's actually somehow. I don't know that is one thing why this of people who travel for a living when your home for too long they start going. Hey when you when you leave it they say but i get it. You know we were doing. We were doing a lot better before you here. I had a routine and now you just monkey arrange the whole thing. There dude exactly yeah we we. We've got this all under control. We don't need you to come in and tell us how to hey their supervisor so you know when they say that tone. Hey their supervisor uh-huh yeah yeah man hate sam. This has been awesome. Dude thank you so much. I always love catching up with you and i i hope i hope it's on the golf course pretty soon next time. Yeah man hopefully so nice thing. Now is is that because of dorian left us alone. <hes> the golf courses should be in pretty good shape when you when you be allowed to even swing like just chip <hes>. I don't offer honestly. I don't really know i've got i've got another week and week and a half where i'm not supposed to move my arm really and i mean i've been doing as much like grip stuff little movements that i can write but i've got eight weeks of physical therapy after to that and i i've from everything i've talked to and and understood from everyone else who's been through something like this is. You've got to be patient and that's going to be the biggest challenge for me is is that you know. I'm gonna wanna push a little harder than i should probably and you gotta be patient 'cause that first day where they say all right. Lift your arm up. You can't even do it. I mean <hes> it's it's gonna be frustrating to to see how much strength i've lost but it will also be rewarding when you see that you know the strengths are coming back and you get that full mobility <hes> but i i'm optimistic. I think i'll be swinging a golf club before the before the end of the year but you know i i. I definitely got to be patient and not push too hard. I need you to put a sign. Sign up that you see every day and do this for me and then you can thank me later yeah. No athlete has ever come back too late. This is true right. When's the last time you heard someone from an injury especially a golfer especially ago you have. I've never heard a golfer say. I waited too long and came back too late. No you're right. You're right so i'm all right. I'll put it yes because that way you holding that trophy. You're gonna be like a little sign up im- him my spot and part of the reason this trophy right now you want out. You know just saying to sign. I'll know it was me. Put that idea in your head but if you just saw a reference to the scienc- that's me getting a shout out without getting a shoutout subtle all right see no our little secret. Just saying that i hey i'll do it. Hey we'll do this again soon. Man this is awesome. Yeah got it brother. I'll do it anytime at <hes>. Take care of yourself and thanks thank you appreciate you do really appreciate you.

The Coordinator: Sean Lahav

"Business Perspective that say perspective. I respect that one more time. Water Shabaab is fresh out of Grad School. I'm twenty four turning twenty five in February but already he's reached the point in his career where he's in charge. Egypt coordinating resilience efforts for all of northeast Florida Room. This is the adapt podcast. I'm Brandon rivers the reporter a W. J. C. T. News in Jacksonville. Florida adapters are online magazine. About what people in northeast Florida are doing to adapt a st level rise and climate change. And in this podcast. We're hearing from some of about where they've been. And what keeps them going along. Sean is the resiliency coordinator for something called the Northeast Florida Regional Council. We'll hear more about what it does in a minute but first what is resilience. You're always GonNa get a different answer depending on who you ask. So if you're looking at a transportation planner for example they might be concerned with the resilience of a road system or a network of roads systems. This with something like sea level rise or an urban planner might think about keeping houses above water. But he really likes the definition of resilience from the US Army Corps of Engineers. So let's say okay. You have a system in this case. We'll call it Jacksonville so on a routine basis like today everyone's going to work the economy's functioning smoothly. It's it's normal but then a shock comes into the system like a hurricane event so once the shockers the system loses function the resilient species. How do we return the system in this case Jacksonville back to full functionality? How do we learn from that event so when we look into the future at the UH next shock which is going to be inevitable? How do we learn from that to reduce the curve so when the next shot comes along we don't lose as much functionality and we move forward award at a steady rate so what exactly is a resilient to coordinator? What do you do similar to a chief resilience officer for? Let's say a city or state in my responsibilities are focused on getting people in the same room to first of all talk about these issues. Then there's this educational component and really putting all the the pieces together so a big focus of my position if we're taking pyramid approach is to look at resilience from a community perspective first of all and say what steps need to be taken to make our community more resilient so that starts with public awareness so recently I designed to set of initiatives should've to first of all educate the public about what we're doing so that starts with a business continuity presentation focused on economic resilience we work with Rotary Clubs and other similar groups on the ground to talk about what small business owners can do to make their businesses more resilient to natural hazards so purchasing flood. What insurance raising your HVAC systems backing up your data things like that? So it's very tangible. And it Kinda plant seeds in people's heads here he is speaking to the rotary recove- polack Last month with the silver is in the big picture things. Nothing will ever happen in less elected officials government. Understand it and they listen to constituents constituents so if this is a priority for you as a community or as individuals tell your elected officials. They're willing to talk about it. Then we move up the pyramid into this presentation focused on building community resilience. So how can community leaders actually implement solutions in their own backyards and then and from there we partnered with Taylor Engineering on this adaptation solutions presentation. That goes over all of the solutions. That communities can adopt opt in efforts to become more resilient there's protection strategies where you completely blocked something from coming in. Let's say water then there's accommodation like living shorelines shorelines so instead of saying no water is allowed. Let the water come in. Learn how to divert the water into natural areas and then then there's also concepts related to avoidance so. Don't build in a particular place if it's going to be exposed to flooding and then there's also manage relocation in some regards in areas. Let's say in Saint Johns County and parts of Nassau County Some homeowners have no other option at this point point because of sand dunes fading away and roads fading away that they might have to leave so there's government buyout options and things like that if we go to the crux and the top of the Pyramid Pyramid. We designed a public workshop focused on asking community members. What's important to them? What are the problems facing your community? Is it storm surge urge. Is it sunny day flooding. Are You more concerned with silver is or hurricanes. Wha what's the the issue area in your community and from there we organized community members into groups where we work on map activities where citizens take sticky notes identify on a map. What's important to them? mm-hmm and then we help facilitate dialogue to create strategies to protect those assets so all of these services that were offering at the northeast Florida regional council related to resilience resilience were offering completely for free to community groups that are interested in the seven county region. That work is paid for by taxpayers cities and counties. He's in northeast Florida. Pay Dues to belong to the regional council. One of the ten planning councils in the state they help local governments not only with emergency and disaster preparedness but also with economic development and other issues. Let's talk about you so I was looking at your linked profile before we sat down. And you've got an extremely impressive resume for someone. Your Age Shannon kind of makes me wonder what I've been doing with my life so tell me about yourself and how you got to this point your career. So I'm a by product of two different states. I grew up in south Florida down in Boynton in beach and I also lived in Cape Cod Massachusetts for portions of my childhood. My parents operated a seasonal retail business in south Florida specifically specifically in big pine key down in the Florida keys but also in Massachusetts. So what South Florida and Cape Cod have in common. Is this geography that is extremely vulnerable to coastal hazards. So in Cape Cod. There's Nor'easterS in extreme snow events and South Florida. It's the obvious hurricanes. Tropical Saipan's Shawn's dad would completely bored up his house with metal shutters. I remember one hurricane in the early two thousands My parents just installed this new screener on the house. Yes we were in the home listening to this violent wind coming from every direction outside of the house and the scream was completely ripped off of the house and we heard it and it was a pretty scary sound and then once the storm passed We walked around the neighborhood and our screen room was five streets down the neighborhood Searches showed you how powerful Mother Nature was in that essence. Like many Florida and Sean has lots of memories like this flooded. Streets down power lines. His grandparents evacuating to his house. And when we come back in return to their their mobile home park just complete devastation. Asian a lot of people's lives were turned completely upside down but again I thought this was a routine part of life. Hurricane even threatened his parents livelihood flooding cargo trailer full of inventory for their store thousands of dollars and that had a big impact on their business for the year so on a personal note. When when I think of resilience I I really think about small business owners and what it means to them if they're impacted by let's say a storm event like a hurricane it? You can have a really devastating long term outlook on their life and business. When Sean was in college he spent a lot of time in nature even going on three months of off the grid? Expeditions in places like Wyoming in the middle of winter I just started developing a real interest in How the Environment Effects Society how we how we look look at the environment how we look at natural places? Do we protect them to utilize them. I don't really know how I ended up in Jacksonville I if it was just pointing at somewhere on a map but I heard really good things about the University of North Florida and I have to say it was probably the best decision I ever made. I really found a great community here in northeast Florida. So when I arrived in Jacksonville maybe several months after being here. I started talking to the U. N. F. Environmental Center and they were looking for a student to work on this video series to promote the natural parks in northeast Florida specifically in Duval County. Any and this was under their environmental leadership program which was a new program in the works to connect students with community partners to work on actual projects. He ended up producing twenty videos on Duval county's parks and later as a public administration masters student. He got another opportunity through the NF Environmental Fire Mental Center. The city of Atlantic beach was looking for help as it pursued Leed certification. You've probably heard of lead as relates to green environmentally friendly buildings but but the idea is now being applied to whole communities when Atlantic beach got certified with Shawn's help put together a case study on the process and the US Green Building Council is holding up his case a study as it tries to get other local governments around Florida to pursue Leed certification. Five days before graduation Sean was offered the job at the regional council at at the northeast. Florida regional council our main objective right now is to raise public awareness about these issues. We want to make sure that the public understands is what government is looking at and we also believe that this has to be a team sport so government will not be able to fix this issue alone. nonprofits won't either and as well as the business community. This has to be a multi discipline holistic activity. Are there any unique any challenges. We face in northeast Florida. What we're seeing recently in two thousand sixteen and then two thousand seventeen with Matthew and Irma? There's a lot of water here. And we love in northeast. Florida live on the water. So we have that. Lana Ocean the intercoastal and the Saint John's river and and we've built homes. We've developed our businesses all along these waterways. It's important to us. We look at it as a sacred entity these waterways but in addition to that we're starting to realize that water levels are rising. And we're seeing things in San Marco for instance like nuisance flooding where the sky is blue. We're not having a storm event and you have flooding in the streets so I think some of these hazards are are starting to become more visible when in the past. They haven't been so. I met one individual two weeks ago. WHO said that the pipe leading to an ice maker in their home there is a high tide in the water from the river pushed through that pipe into the ice maker flooding the kitchen? So what's happening opening in essentially San Marco. Let's say you have a storm water system that doesn't have a backflow valve on it. Water during high tide is GonNa clog that system push all of the water backup through the pipe and flood whatever's on the other end so there are preventative steps. That can be taken like backflow. Valves which I think they've started install and Saint Augustine. Yes so water can only go one way and it can't come back so I think that's an example of a solution to protect ourselves against rising seas but it's just one of many solutions out there. Given what we know about sea level rise and flooding and hurricanes why why do people keep building developing and risky coastal areas. We are attracted to waterways because of the benefits that are produced for us by living there. There's transportation so we ship and and receive goods from ports that has to do with waterways. We can on the Mississippi River for instance go up and down. It was a communication Gatien Element back in the day so there's not just this intrinsic value of or the straightforward attitude that we're living on the water but just because it's beautiful. Well I think that Naturally as humans we've always been attracted to water for agriculture and all sorts of other reasons and I think that's why cities are located where they are so i. I want to put this out there. That especially coming from the northeast. Florida Regional Council that economic development is very important to us. We believe that it's one of the most important parts of developing a safe healthy and vibrant community but on the other hand it doesn't have to be just a focus on build build build so we have to start looking at. How do we balance development with environmental protection? How do we build in the right places and when we do build? How do we we build more resilient? So if we're looking at any number of development projects let's say in Jacksonville and silver is becomes a concern learn in a specific area. The perspective is not to just say don't develop it's saying okay if you're going to build this let's factor silver is interior design plan This is the adapt podcast. Thank you for listening. Jessica Palumbo the editor of adapt so adaptation to sea level rise in northeast. Florida is personal for me because I rode out Hurricane Irma in a neighborhood that flooded when I was nine months. Pregnant regmunt got rescued by boat and like most of us I still live and work and shop in areas that are close to the saint. John's river and the beach which as flooding and other issues are only expected to get worse. Our community is looking to adapt for information and answers and since we launched last year we've heard from readers who are happy. They can find them in a single place. That's at adapt Florida Dot Org. The adopt podcast asked is a production of Wj C. T. public media. Financial support for adopt comes from our readers and listeners with additional support from the Arthur vining Davis foundations nations and the twenty four foundation more at adapt Florida Dot Org uh in twenty thirteen before Sean. Got There the northeast. Florida Regional Council released the Regional Action Plan on sea level writes. This was essentially dipping our toes in rising waters and the way the community looked at it. Was that silver is is threatening other communities in Florida and that we believe it has the potential to threaten our community here northeast Florida so in that same time period in two thousand fourteen. The Public Private Regional Resilience Committee was formed as a committee of the council. So this is the P. to Archie Committee. So so when P to archie was formed there is a question asked who are the movers and Shakers in northeast Florida. And who can guide this discussion for it and the answer was the business. Business Community in northeast Florida. I think we can confidently say that the business sector the private sector is extremely important in making these developments happen so a broad range of industry professionals from insurance legal fields engineering architecture and many other subject matter expertise bridges gathered in this PTO Arctic Committee to create a list of action items that we could pursue to make northeast Florida more resilient besides convening community conversations on resilience the regional council also collects data and develops tools planners like a website that lets people find the threats to specific locations on a map of northeast. Florida Florida so you have a map to the right and then you have all of these data layers to the left that you can turn on and off and you can play around with to understand. The region's vulnerabilities. So on the top up of the data options we have things like critical facilities population density low income population densities one of the first water layers that are featured are fema flood hazard zones so flood insurance rate maps. That tie into flood. Insurance rates are featured here. So if let's say you're in North Florida and you own a home you can look at where you are in relation to flood zones. Let's say you WANNA purchase a home. This could be a great resource to look at in making that investment decision and then the next data layer that we have is storm surge so there's extensive statewide work on understanding storm surge throughout Florida. So what this tool does is put that into one centralized location and it shows you you wear storm. Surge would go on land from category one to category five storm and then we have two other data layers as well. We have depth of flooding at different intervals or storm events. So if it's really dark blue that means there's going to be much more water if it's light blue it'd be less. And then in addition we have a sea level. Rise layer that uses. Noah mapping to look at sea level rise from a one foot increase to a six foot increase. Where this tool gets really interesting saying is that you can overlay those flares are there's water layers with social layers in wildlife layers so the regional council also recently launched a survey survey on resilience? What were your findings from that? We asked all sorts of questions. Like what are the most important things that your government should be looking at. Is it storm. Surge is is it silver is is it green infrastructure and. We're still organizing those results but at the end of the survey. We asked some big picture questions. And I think think one of the most insightful ones and this is for all seven counties there were six hundred seventy two participants in the survey we asked. Is Your community doing enough to address stress resilience planning and the overwhelming majority of respondents said. No eighty-three percent seventeen percent said yes. So what this tells us is that there is a long road ahead to figure out how to how to deal with these situations and these topics before we move on. I WanNa take a second and talk about the regional council's relationship with the city of Jacksonville in the fall of twenty nineteen. When the Jacksonville City Council was going over its budget councilman Ferraro suddenly suggested ending the city's annual financial contribution to the regional council? I was assigned to that and my first year and I had a difficult difficult time figuring out what they do for our city and I never really got an answer and as I worked at work at work through the last four years. I've I I found. There is some things that they do but but as as taxpayers were not getting our money's worth and nearly four hundred thousand dollars Jacksonville's annual contribution is larger than any other member of the Regional Council and makes about twenty percent of its annual operating budget. The city stayed in for now but she's expected to come back up in the twenty twenty budget cycle. Despite this potential threat northeast Florida's most prominent regional effort to address the level rise and his employer. Sean says there's a lot of positive momentum Jacksonville right now now. Starting with the two new committees the city created within the past year to look at sea level rise. There was the Adaptation Action Area Working Group which was very focused on long-term priority already areas for addressing resilience and then there was the storm resiliency and Infrastructure Review Committee that was more focused on short-term objectives of how we can improve for storm water systems and a lot of really valuable information came out of the work of both those committees and I think it's laying the foundation for how we're going to move forward. The work is is continuing this year with a new Brazilian committee made up of City Council members who will hear from experts around the state of Florida. There's a lot of mental right now in Jacksonville and elsewhere so there's these regional collaborative forming all around the state. There's the southeast Florida climate compact the recently created e central regional resilience collaborative and the Tampa Bay resilience coalition. And then. We're also seeing chief. Resilient officers being hired by different municipal local governments around Florida and counties is to address local concerns related to resilience planning and then there's also leadership at the state level in Tallahassee. So governor onto Santa's one of his is priorities as governor is to address a lot of the scientific issues and environmental issues. We're facing as a state and moving into the future. So he appointed appointed a chief science officer at the state level and then also appointed a chief resilience officer. Who is Dr Julian Nashua? If you haven't already listen into our conversation with Julia Watch she's one of the six people we hear from in this podcast. So there's a lot of action happening right now. We're going to start hearing a lot more about the specific topic and I think it's all positive as long as we can target in on what's important for our state what's important for our communities and and I think the the meaningfulness is GonNa come out of finding tangible solutions that we can implement in a realistic manner. So do you have any closing thoughts. I think a really really meaningful picture that advise everyone to go home and look at is. This photo of the damage left behind from Hurricane. Michael in Mexico beach out in the Florida panhandle. So there's this photo of this house. This big house built on stilts it's elevated off the ground it's an a coastal area area. It looks completely fine. It withstood the impacts of hurricane. Michael it was built resilient and it it was still standing all around that piece of property the rest of the community essentially looks like it doesn't exist. Everything was just completely devastated. Devastated if your house is still standing but everyone else's collapses what's the property value of your home or your business so I encourage urge everyone to think about all of the dynamics that tie into this conversation when we're talking about resilience. I think it's important to think about what what steps can be taken to protect the entire community not just specific neighborhoods or groups of people and I think when we start having those robust meaningful conversations. We're really going to find answers that brings together. That's Sean La. The resiliency coordinator for the Northeast Florida Regional Council to see that photo. He was talking walking out of that House on Mexico beach. Check out the web version of this conversation at adapt Florida Dot Org there.

Scam Baiting

"You're listening to jones. Totally tech your tech podcast. Do you get sick of those robo. Caller is calling you or have you had a loved one who has been scammed by one of these scammers today. We're going to talk about a john nra of video streaming campaigning. You may have seen this from camp foca or trilogy media on youtube or twitch. We'll talk about this. Whole john laura and about the possibilities of us getting into this to on totally tat Welcome to the. Joey's totally tech podcast. I'm joey k goal antonio garra and it's been way too long and i know i said i was going to put out an episode march. I that didn't happen. We've had all sorts of stuff going on as far as our schedules and whatnot. I've actually had some web development work i've been doing and i've got a client coming back possibly for maintenance warm so that's excited for me. Yeah i've been I mean. I've got a new job. I think i mentioned it last time. We podcast in a lone surfer one main financial. So i get to work at home. It's nice i have a nice comfy recliner like it's like a movie theater style leather recliner. It's so nice to see how the yeah so that's going well. Oh also Lisa and i went on vacation last week. We went to the outer banks north carolina for those that. Don't know ed right. Yes we went to nags head and for those that don't know what the outer banks are. There's barrier islands on the coast of north carolina that You know keep the on the northern tip like near virginia. So it's kinda like around the norfolk kitty. Hawk area right. Yeah we were Yeah we are kind of on the northern side of the Outer banks for short. It goes off from southern southern north carolina to northern north carolina. But i think a lot of people think like cape hatteras nags head kitty. Hawk that because the northern tip yes and that's like further away from the mainland like you go down to the southern part where like indian beach atlantic beach that some people don't even consider about the outer banks i do but i i've actually never would kitty hawk one time when i was That was right after. I graduated high school. So that was two thousand three. Got him old but Yeah that's the closest ever been to the outer banks so never much. There was a lot of refreshments at the beach. That you're you know what i'm saying. Oh yes so anyway tonight i. I apologized for the march. First step said not happening. I also apologize. If i sound a little tired or worn out. I don't think i do. But i had a more intense. Taekwondo class session tonight than what i have had I guess i'm a little bit higher rank now than i was before the workout is more intense and the one white belt and class was actually younger so she could handle the more intense. The older people you know But yeah i'm high yellow belt now and there were like Our engine i think a greenbelt in a red belton class so it's like workout was a bit more intense and what i've been used to in the class so far but that's a good thing you got a picture body beyond the limits exactly. I agree otherwise. I would consider the school Dow jo- and that's definitely not mc doja is a also a scam is what it would be if they did that. Workout intensity and so that is remind discount funny story saas this podcast a couple of years ago. This comedian was on there. I forget who he was but he was talking about like his whole family tocado together like when he was growing up right. Yeah and in a word to like you know black belt you had to beat someone else. Who was a black belt. And like i guess a fight or whatever you call and so what his mom with up to get her black belt. The said say like made her fight the comedian. Who was her son why he like and he liked destroyed her. She got all mad about it. Yeah it probably idea. Say what i think. He was upset with her about something at the time. I'll get outta my. Apparently she was a nice woman but now that's just one person's opinion i don't know she is or not. I just thought that was that all right. I would probably fell him though because that would probably be a misuse of taekwondo. If easy is just because he was upset with her why think the actually well. The reason i brought up is actually was. I think the doja was like a scam. Because he gave his ideas. He gave the mom with the black belt. Anyway i'll go. He paid them. I don't care who's your black belt. Having such really the reason why. I brought it up because of that art. But the dude beating up his mom was kinda just. That's crazy When i took taekwondo as a kid For black belt You had to break And i never got black belt as a kid but you had to break a cement slap a while. My mother did i. I never did i. I got intimidated and last house watched now. Actually i was watching What is it karate kid to the other day. And they're showing for being where he frigging shops. The ice blocks and half right. I would find that easier to the summit slap. I think it might be. Yeah but depends on the ice though. It's really hard. Maybe not so easy. Maybe if it's like vanilla. Ice donna is all right but you. We talked about about scams tonight. Subject is scam baiting. Particularly scam baiting on mike twitch in youtube you might have seen scam bait videos from like Boga trilogy media some others I will mentioned here in the podcast at something that i've been considering doing really want to quit the podcast. However i want to branch out and mike keep everything under the. Joey's totally tech rela. I want to maybe like tried my hand out a law Scam baiting at some point. What what do you think antonio. I think it sounds like fun. Actually i've done a little bit of scam baiting. My free time. When i was younger i usually like to You know you get those calls for like your homeowner warranty your warranty. I guess what those peter a good with their whole pitch and stuff like that yes. Yeah yeah i guess. I've done a tiny bit myself a telemarketers. I don't know if they were scammers. When i was a kid but telemarketers call. And i would tell they would ask for my parents. I tell the telemarketer that My parents are abducted by aliens. And i don't know in the back and then now i get those car. Warranty calls I tell them you know. I didn't 'cause i don't have a car. I take public transit right and I tell them. I didn't even know i had a car. Can you tell me what make a model. My car is when they asked me for the baker bottle and they hang up so when you get those ones and they're like oh like if a yoshikata card number we can maybe get you another credit card with lower straight already mike. My credit card number the last digit. Yeah already began barbosa mess look at different digit time and after these like from report times to kind of get the or he was good to classic air horn. Your the air horn. You'd be like hey. Can you hear me okay. Media has done that airport. Yeah that's Let's give stop. We might have to try that time. yeah i was gonna say something else in it slipped my mind but here we go. This is joey's totally tech today. Subject as scam baiting. So this is more of a discussion type thing antonio feel free to join and if you'd like of course Make some comments. You know if you want to read the next bullet point on here Go for you know Actually you want to start us off. Yeah i mean we can just switch back and forth if you want you know. We'll make kind of natural. Yeah definitely all right. Let's do it all right. So yeah you could go for Scam baiting is actually a form of internet vigilantism though not quite as andreas as real life. Vigilantism it's more targeted towards advanced free. Sra it's more targeted towards advance. E fraud ira scams tech support scams scams. It could see we're financial fraud. Yes so basically. It's like the green era or batman. But just doing everything like just targeting scammers and not really attack them physically Necessarily well that's the thing though. So now the criminals now they're hiding behind keyboards. The vigilant is just at the follow suit. Right definitely not quite as dangerous though if you f- the scammer somehow find out where you are. There's a possibility something can happen but mostly scammers are in a different country and probably not going to go after you. That's like not worth it to them. You know yeah pressure yeah Yeah the scam baiters. At least the ones. I watch ona youtube twitch. They pose a potential victims in order to waste the time and resources of the scammers. And they'll gather information not times which is useful to authorities and a publicly exposed scammers as well The tools and methods that the scammers. He is Maybe documented and scammers can warn potential victims. You could actually watch these videos on youtube and learn how the scams work often times. You know because a lot of people are totally clueless about the scams In fact i. I know Several times that's happened in the retail store that i worked for they. You know the scams were. You've got to buy those gift cards and stuff like two five hundred dollar gift. Cards are something. And they're talking with someone on the phone at the same time and s typically an elderly person that's That's coming through my line and sewer three times In the past few months. I've been able to stop these people from getting scammed but i feel bad for these people you know because they're so prone to being tricked into doing this kind of stuff you know as as happy about it like it usually is elderly that get paid on the most just because you know they may not be as tech savvy. They may not be all they're cognitively could be any other any number reason right. Yes exactly so some scam baiters also disrupts cameras devices and systems using remote access. Trojans viruses can even take down fraudulent websites. Yeah totally i've seen I think i've seen Bogut do the some with like a tech support scammers and Yeah like just put a virus of the tech support scammers computer and raising yes like and then the scammers freaking out of course what i also commonly see as like just Scam baiters wasting the scammers. Time by like they'll set up Virtual machine and putt a lennox distribution on their or even like an older operating system like windows. Ninety five are ms dos or something. It's holi. yeahs scammer nice. Nice nice so Some scam baiters are actually motivated by sense of civic duty. Somebody owned amusement and unfortunately some are motivated by racism. Four one nine eater a scam. Baiting website doesn't allow racism on their own rooms. So i guess you can say like a to typical but a lot of times. I know you mentioned it before. Like a good tell can be if person has like a foreign accent with a lot of times that can be if you get phone call for someone like that was asking about personal information. That's could be a red flag yes That same time that that's a reason to specifically target. You know people from those parts of the country down saying yeah exactly and trilogy. Media even goes after scammers here of the west with like their luxury homes and whatnot in a that are operating Right here you know so. It's not necessarily a safe just because us based you know yeah So yeah and it's easy to judge people with accents. Unfortunately because so many of 'em from are from like india or pakistan or. I don't know how much nigerian scammers are How prevalent they are these days in the only debt kneeling that jerry and scam. I remember hearing about was the nigerian prince laying were like. Oh hey i'm is jerry and prince and i have all this money but i can't get into the back in deposit into an account and you're the lucky person right. That's been a loss. As i've heard a lot about that though i need to check my spam and see if there's anything like that might be able to easily get some phone numbers their scam bait them you know for sure. Yeah but yeah definitely for me. It's not racism. I think my motivation. If i were to do scam baiting myself be because i'm tired of seeing people get scammed first of all especially since i work in retail Second of all you And we'll talk about this in a bit. I'd like to get some of these people who are scammers out of scamming. Because quite frankly i mean yes. There's the entertainment side of scam baiting but i would like to see some of them Start living a better life and help them out where we could you know. Yeah for sure. get them out of that and that that's not easy. It's like trilogy media. I'll talk a little bit more about that. They've actually been helping some get out of Scamming and ed's arrest because what they do is like they'll raise money to help them out and while the person for all you know could still be scamming but they a good job of baking shore. That they're not scamming not lying about trying to get out of that you know. Yeah yeah. I think a lot of times. I mean as with most crimes. I think it's a crime socratic convenience. You know i'm I'm having a little trouble put on the table but you know walk you go out and sell drugs especially get shot computer Make a couple thousand bucks for some idiots on the internet. Yeah i get. It is but yeah yeah. A lot of these people are just trying to survive. It's their bosses. That are really the true criminals in my opinion so You have a couple of different types of scam baiters. There's the written communication. I've actually done a little bit of this as well but then share it with a one but a scam baiters while answer scam emails using Throwaway email accounts You don't see this done so much on twitter youtube but There have been some people at ted talks talking about this. A bit so If you know if anyone wants to check it out you should easily be able to find it on youtube. So and i mentioned this in the past but like august scam emails all the time to semi regular email. Box my stand folder. He'll say hey. Palace from net flicks. It's you know citibank or whatever right and they like here if you click on this link and something's wrong with your account information By time is like you know with most modern you know email servers It just give you like a the nickname doesn't give you the actual email address. So you're my email. You wanna say thome garrett eighty-five dot com and they'll say antonio garra so these scammers they choose a nickname. That's pay pal apple. Whatever but if you click on the actual nickname. We'll show does a series of random letters and numbers at g. Mail dot com. I guarantee you the fraud department at citibank does not use a g mail account. Don't exactly and a lot of those are phishing scams to and sadly i don't know if anyone's ever going to apply if you replied to ally those special scams i could be wrong. I haven't tried that when it comes to. Actually don't you remember police ago. I got hit with the phishing scam on facebook like eight. Yes so we're paying to a while. Just got message from them and i clicked on it like walking facebook and they have my info. I knew i got fifty messages. That they like. Hey you got hacked. The i got it thanks. Yeah yeah i suppose. That's kind of like a phishing scam in warm all in one. So it's like you can't easily get to the original creator of that. You know just going around you know. And fortunately i i have my own personal policy not to click on a video unless i someone can tell me what it's all about you know why mash no because at some guy. I knew from high school. That i haven't i never talked to on post comex occasionally here and there on his post you know. We're not like friends. Or i mean we were friends in high school but like i said i haven't seen that he would like twenty years so right. Well i mean i've done the same thing. I'm a tech savvy guy. But i received an email From a client. One time and i was kind of hoping than expected. Some new work from this person you know and as like some sort of documents or whatever for project i open it and apparently it was some type of a worm or something and suddenly emails all the people on my contact list on g mail and yet just went around like crazy and so i had to email everyone of my contact list and tell them what was going on not to open that if they had not yet and You know just apologize. Even a tech savvy guy like me could be folded to doing some things you know. I mean you let your guard down. Sometimes it happens to the best of us. Yeah exactly and you unleash eating you know. Give your social security number two. You know some some bozo than celia identity right yeah So y- the ones that are. We mainly want to talk about those as far scam baiters though more audio visual so we're talking about twitch and youtube Really popular one kit boga. He is a vocal transformer think. He is a role in v. T. three if i remember correctly there's also the role v t four And he changes his voice Like one of his popular characters as a grandma named edna and Zero call up all these scammers and You know just show go off gadgets. Gamers they loved on the elderly and shall go off on these tangents and stuff and then Like one of the gift cards scams are examples. They'll be like fake gift cards and stuff and Shall start redeeming them. Where ever like. Let's say google play gift cards. She'll star redeeming among google. Play herself the scammer freaks out. You know it's amazing so Kit boga maybe the most well known twitch and youtube scam. Baiter others include realty media. Rl rosie renault poison and scammer payback. Children media sometimes has collaborations with other barriers as well We've seen kit boga an l. Rosie make appearances entre g media. Yeah i've seen it. I don't know if you have seen it yet. But you know but eh It's really cool. I have not really watched the one with kept boga yet by seen actually I was introduced to our l. Rosie through a trilogy media Video and she does the one of the things she'll do as sound like amazon alexa. Sometimes talking to the and it's pretty freaking awesome. I love it you know. Yeah and that's what. I like about game being though it's like it's kind of like a prank call Bud dupree call causing harm to a person you're causing someone who's meaning to harm someone else harb you know You know who else Used to do a little bit of what we know scam baiting now but back then he just could set it a prank call He's attack youtuber at theo joe he s sure yeah. He is make joke videos. But you're not believe how many People actually believed his jokes like to get free wi fi or the one that he really went over. The edge with was how to get Paid for doing nothing and you had to write a letter to the president. Which at that time was president. Obama say i exist therefore I deserve to get paid however much money. I can't remember now. you'd have to look it up. I might share the video as the point behind universal income right. Yeah exactly well nigh exactly 'cause a universal basic income as a story for another time. But i'll just explain it quickly. At least the way andrew yang was thinking about a thousand a month. That's just like enough to get by but not enough to be comfortable. you know. y- efforts done the right way a But back to scam baiting Yet he he did a few prank calls on his Youtube channel and One of them was one of these. Nigeria actually i think they were both nigeria scammers. One of them he was claiming to be a guy on the international space station And the other one he was like Some nazi guy dr l. It's funny. I share those videos with you man. So yeah i guess those are earlier. Scam baited videos. That i don't think that term had co own yet you know. Oh yeah for sure. Yeah so Let's see kept. Boga is also notable for making a fake bank websites and other fake websites as well. And as i mentioned before pretending to purchase a gift cards like google play cards He'd pretend to redeem gift cards to enrage the scam earth and He started his scam baiting. Currier in mid twenty seventeen after five has grandmother was of victim of many of these types of scams And like we said They prey on the elderly particularly. I mean they'll pray on anyone they could get to believe the elry. they're like one of the most. I hate to say the word gullible because it sounds and salting probably one of the most their more gullible with fable. They're just not as aware of the dangers out. There is like hey you shouldn't give your information of people on the on. the fell on the discount randomly right. I think that's a better way to put it. They're not as aware of what's going on and Even even people who aren't elderly like said they could fall victim to this as well. Also you could also have like you know the The not so wealthy if someone. Who's especially right now. You know we'd be between covert nineteen and we just had those winter storms in texas last month in a lot of people that really in dire financial straits and you know people like that too who are like. Oh if i give this first of my information you hook me up with some money people that were also able. Yeah so i think. I'll take this next bullet point too because we're still talking about kit boga here Plane at now which. Ns probably the most popular character. He plays He also has other characters. There's a valley girl named nevada. Or that's heaven backwards An elderly man. Billy mays and He hasn't exactly he. Just that name for the oxycontin guy and i guess he's an elderly man now and then. Some of my favorites are when he's competing technical support scammer named daniels health. Hell did to characters. At one time he'll be the who's Passerby be the victim and then hell also be competed scammer who comes in after the first scammer as contacted and it's crazy at the the first game starts freaking out you know and he's like hang up the phone. Hang up the phone disconnect the call. you know. this isn't really a scam baiting. A prank call yet and it was like I guess this guy called like a chinese takeout restaurant he had long order. You notice all this different stuff is like a hundred dollar order okay. Yeah and he puts the poll right that he any calls another chinese takeout place. He puts them on hold and he brings the first off bold. He's like excuse me. European order from really quick and he he brings other gop a whole so then. The one chinese restaurants like reading the order to the chinese restaurant. He thinks the other guy's trying to make an order. Just this whole thing you. I'm just reminded of a few a couple of situations right now I get a lot of calls from someone. I assume as a scammer claiming to be from spectrum. You know the internet and cable service provider here in charlotte and yeah you know there. Someone sounds like they're from india or pakistan. If you call the number back that They saw from you. Get someone tali deferent. And it's not them like they're spoofing the call but Yeah so. I figured that scott to be a scam. They're you know it's Safer barrier right. yeah exactly Also lisa one-time got some sort of some are cau- Probably not wasn't from spectrum. I can't remember who it was She asked him not call again. And guess what they did they call the guy they caught again and he's like could you please stop calling. First time. they said they'd stop calling and the guy was like i'm sorry i cannot stop calling ma'am i'm like. Oh that's creepy. Well that's also a good side that it's a scam just because like most you know most organizations that you know a call people call people. There is an sec regulations. A place. like like. I told you our from home now as a loan servicer but the way it is like i'm only allowed to contact. You know a person a certain amount of times a day and then you can make contact with them. That one day then. I'm not allowed to contact him for the rest of the day. But then you know certain things happen over contact with for five days but and the biggest thing is though it's like if someone tells you do not contact me again. Legally we're not allowed to me. It's like a violation of its alvin. Now the fcc but it's like you know F. e. c. I a. whatever One yeah as are saying alive these scammers okay so when a normal professional 'cause year yet did not expect them. I mean what happens if they say f. A normal professional person who's on the up up says he is sir if they say fudgy you sir Probably you know what mariah told you about what i was doing. The credit grouping numbers athlete the third or fourth. Time to me out like a f f. f your mom like okay buddy but in a normal professional environment. What's going to happen to that person does that. They probably get fired most likely. Yeah you know what these scammers often to say when they're irritated by these scam. Baiters you sir or you know whatever you know. It's just that they just are willing to act totally unprofessional you now yeah i mean i guess they don't have quite the level of professionalism on in the scam opposite. Is that you the places. So yeah tell us a little bit about some Channels like trilogy media. Actually helping people get out of The hall screaming business. Yeah so one of the interesting things i thought was that Children media has videos where they have actually helped scammers out of their call centers and move into a better or a legitimate way of living below. Syllable are there videos about samer. They name r e nyse zeal name for privacy and safety reasons but they helped him move to another town by work and helped me start at ultimately started his own. Printing business started or key smokin. Leave his village so he bought chickens. Chicken coop is rain vegetables in his garden which he can sell for. Some income is also considered doing scam. Baiting videos yeah so we'll thing. I think that's the thing people a lot of people don't Keep in mind as far as like you know the criminal element then the day. They're just people like me and you like is mary lee. Will you find like true. Evil in this world most Most criminals like this is an excuse. You know we have it. We live in a society and as such you know people are expected to behave a certain way. But you know when you're back is against the wall and sometimes people do things that they're not proud of And they crossed lines that they wouldn't cross given different situation. You know what i'm saying and you know it's tough to say like. Oh well you know. I got three kids at home. And i was single parent and you know. My two jobs are barely cuban roof of my head. now there's a fricken pandemic. i'm rusin hours. Like what are you gonna do. Yeah i mean do what you gotta do sometimes and like. I said that's not an excuse. But that's just the mentality of people have it's just like i have no other choice like i'm trying to do the right thing. I go to work every day. You know i bust my hop by come home and it's not enough you know and get government assistance and not and you know i want to be able to you know. Do nice things with my kids. I don't want them to have to sit at home all day looking at youtube. I wanna take them out to do this. And that s that's them. That's what drives people to you. Commit crimes to the people out there and it's the just get off on. It's just like oh man i just trick this person to give me a thousand dollars in the social security number. I'm so cool so yeah so As far as scam baiting goes so three questions that i'd like to ask you know we can discuss it here First of all as this a good or smart idea and let's take to I waste go about the first one. Never really personally confronting them and then number two trilogy. Medicine has done videos where they have personally confronted scammers in real life. Yeah i mean. I guess because the internet you never know out there You might think just some you know. Dweeby guy in his mom's basement but it could be some dangerous individual. You don't know you know what i'm saying. Yeah that's the thing about the criminal element you don't really know what's going on like you know just because if you go to the park and buy a little bit of we from somebody you don't know what else to sell them to give. You saw anything. He could be involved with anything you know or his you know he could be involved with. That are about anything. Yeah that's one thing. You do have a mind when you're doing videos like this where you're going to be very very careful right. That's probably going to be a good idea to use a vpn you And it has your tattoo keep a buying a via a vpn as not one hundred percent fall. Perf in a note is that. Yeah so you've gotta be pretty hair. I know i'm the i know very few things in this world. That are one. Hundred percent foolproof right. There's no. There's no process or mechanism that i've ever heard of that. Does not you know malfunction at some point in time. so yeah exactly How much good does this do for the scammer. In most cases at waste their time but sometimes the person wants out as we mentioned already. I mentioned to like i said it's You know when you have people that are committing crimes such as these like. I said a lot of these people there. They feel they feel like this is the only shop they have to. You know. change their personal situation. And a lotta times. That's not true but you know there's different factors play as to why people think those things only to get into that here but i feel like if you if you can nudge someone in the right direction. That's all good you know. Yeah you may just be wasting this person's time. Hey maybe you like the seven person. That did that to him today. He's you know what i'm doing this. I'm afraid in. Go ma fours mcdonald's than then you know whatever happens happens at that point. I know we wrong sure. Mopping floors mcdonald is a super glamorous job but hey at least honest work right. Yeah exactly and you know. How many times You know kept boga in one of the biggest scams out there you know. How many times Someone else a dead scam baiting and the scammer thought it was Kept boga are seen several times like Youtube what i've watched these scams videos as like the scammer thinks. It's kid boga when someone else. I guess that means you're doing something right. And then the final question is how much good does this do for potential victims I mean honestly. I think the good for the victims is i mean as far as raising awareness as to what these different ams are and different tact. Except he's amer's are using. I think that's awesome saying now as far as like stopping scamming. You're never gonna be able to stop crimes. They're always talking about tonight idea because we have a war on crime the criminals. They have a war on the law. Like you know. They're trying to do their thing. And we're trying to do our thing kind of like or these two things Smashed together. But i said no matter what you do you never going to get rid of crime. No crime at all. Never get rid of people. Robbing you tally. That get rid of drug dealers. And i can get rid of prostitution rid of cell phones. Cameras is not going to happen. You know liberty. You can't put that genie back in the bottle the the information and the processes to do these are two elliott bailable. And there's just enough people out there with just loose morals. That are willing to you know like i said cross those lines that you and i you know potentially are willing to cross. Yeah some feet. Some people will just to be really easy money and quick anna and if they can hire people for their call centers. Get to scam people. You know they don't care if Someone's getting her in. Ah a someone's getting paid. Nfl support. Yeah the the boss just wants to get that money in you know. Never worry about it again. All they have a lot of very important steak dinners to buy her. I'm sure yup It's of course vary illegal now so yes yes yes So if you're thinking about scamming people out there don't do it please.

Sounds day. welcome back to the. Joey's totally tech. Podcast it's time to talk about the current events of first of all a wild experiment and just us closer to exploring extra dimensions. Ooh that sounds crazy. Doesn't it already while stuff yes. Scientists in austria managed to measure the smallest gravitational field on record. This team demonstrated gravitational coupling between two gold spheres which measured around two millimeters across this required high precision to conduct the test. The results may lead to the development of a sensor which can protect these small forces. And i'm now thinking we're looking at a subatomic realm or micro slyke watson marvel comics or marvel Studios movies. you know word of time. Hugh age rapidly but sometimes not know. I was thinking more like ant man but i mean i guess yeah yeah. The loss like ant man. Mike ant man went into the subatomic realm and then and Endgame at felt like five minutes But he came out of it. Yes i guess he didn't really age any Was it yeah. Light her name. Yeah he was stuck in the air for twenty thirty years. Yes but no. It should have been twenty thirty hours but became a whole over right. Yeah yeah i guess subatomic realm at least and Marvel movies weird things you know. I mean you can travel back in time. Yes exactly yeah. We don't know if it works that way in real life but it. It probably does the if. I had to guess but i know nothing about subatomic particle like that. I mean that's a does work that way in real life. That would be pretty amazing. Yeah i guess all right as well as long as all theories about time traveler truth right as far as paradoxes and like. Hey you can't go back in time. As long as it's not like back to the future where you can be. Like oh i got an almanac of the future and i go back go super. It's yeah i know right all right so Onto my story scientists linked brainwaves a certain processes so reasons study has shown that patterns of electrical activity in the brain trek. Different types of thoughts here near a scientists are just starting to league brain activity to internal experiences such as slots as been found these that there are specific signatures associated with different types of internal processes. Busy finding is bringing neuroscientists closer to identify an an understanding how the brain be behaves. During the thought processes such neuroscientists named julia cam was interested in learning whether certain patterns of activity in the brain might be linked to those different types of thoughts while she was working for uc. Berkeley cam conducted. The study were thirty. Nine individuals were made to donna cap with brainwave sensors attached. She had each participant. Look at a computer screen into the mysteries of either right or left winning arrows and had the press. Aquarius bonding key on the keyboard at the enemies flock air matching series. Researchers asked participants with thoughts. Were as they completed the test. They look for patterns in the brain activity that matched with reported thought type when the researchers matched up specific thought types to specific walks brain activity. They found a clear connection. The team had picked up a clear signal for brand. Timmy that links. To how thoughts flow this study also showed how the brain reacts when our thoughts joked for months subject to another freely moving thoughts such as these may be the key to create a problem solving camps team looked at whether or not the thoughts of the participants had been related to the era mashing activity. They also research whether thoughts were free full or more focused study found sometimes participants for on the task during some blocks but not others. They also learned that people stops wandered freely about as often as they were focused. So i guess. According to this one study you know On average most people will burris. That's super large sample size thirty nine people but this study was suggests that people have free flowing thoughts about as much as they have focused thoughts. Yeah as least when they're hitting buttons on a computer while looking so right so this article was interesting to me. Just because i've always had an interest in just kind of like how the brain works you know right and i think that one of the most interesting things about the sula. We live in today and always. It's scary because you know the information can be used for you know a quote unquote unscrupulous purposes. But i think it's really interesting. How we kind of figured out like what makes us tick as far as like you know how to how to influence people to do certain things and you know. Obviously that's The you see like the media and things like that you know obviously generate money but even that just like there's just so much information out there about like social engineering and you know you know how to talk to certain people with certain personality types orange elicit certain responses right. And i just think that whole area of study you just really interesting. The yeah definitely. I'd like to see what they would find like in regards to like people with autism versus Newark tip goals as far this study. Goes 'cause people with autism often times tend to be like hyper focused on certain subjects. You know Sometimes i mean they can just come up with something randomly like just random the change of subject to me being on the spectrum myself and another friend of mine as well as like we can totally change the subject to something totally different and people are like what the heck man you know My life like. I never been you know diagnosed. I'm pretty sure all summer on the on the spectrum. Yeah i'm kinda lead like app orders kinda right. Yeah the lifelike. Avi havoc hours asia. Someone in my motto does go somewhere else like to cut you off. There might be something really interesting. He is a film. It's completely ori a right in the middle of what they're talking about. Then you know this. Yeah yeah i mean that'd be really interested to have that in Like future studies to see what those thought patterns are like I have to say it's like proudly like more extreme. Oh yeah yeah. I mean this just probably different year with you. Know atypical neurological functions. It would stand to reason that their brain waves potentially be atypical as well. Right right yeah. That's very fascinating though That's really cool story there. So this is bad. Joey k goal and antonio garra. Thank you for listening to the podcast Hopefully the swap out monday.

I'm doing pretty well honestly not too much to to really report. You know like a lot of people just kind of taken a day by day. Honestly you know about you. Well for anyone who follows follows us on. What is it instagram. twitter instagram. But i went to the beach this past weekend which was really nice went to atlantic beach and in north carolina here and have done that for few years so that was a lot of fun. Wish it could have been longer but it was. It was great and then actually the day before that i passed my second Air force special operations fitness tests have to do one more and then. I'm all good to go so that was just a a lot of fun getting to do that. What all did you have to do. So you have to do and these are the minimums my mind you. You have to do a minimum of fifty push-ups and two minutes fifty sit ups and two minutes. Eight popes in two minutes a mile and a half run and eleven minutes or less two twenty five meter underwater swims which is like the length of a competition pool lane. And then and that's a pass fail thing and then you have to do a five hundred yard or meter meter. Think meter surface swim in twelve and a half minutes or less okay. So does the to underwater ones. Are they in one continuous hurt. Can you pop up and then go back down. Go back you you swim one. Come up swim back on on the surface. Have about a thirty second minute long break and then you do it again. Okay yeah so it's not. It's not a it really is twenty five meters. It's not a full fifty. Thankfully so yeah. That was did that. Paul and i'm sure people are getting so tired of hearing about this. I have finally have a conclusion to my candy purchase fiasco. Okay so briefly. Bought a bunch of bazooka gum. Three hundred pieces ish. I think turns out and i taste was horrible. Brutal stand it. If again if anybody wants it feel free. Turns out. I bought bazooka gum. Sugar free paul. A my my face is red on that one. I'm to blame for that so that was too bad. Thankfully not a whole lot of money down the drain but still still on me. So are you going to go in and try with sugar bazooka now. I don't know. I think i've already been so scarred from the bazooka company experienced. We'll see though but anyhow yeah that's that's down so you don't need to worry about hearing about it again. It's all done but they still have the little comic in the rapper. I think the the regular do so again. That's a strike against waste. Yeah so cool. Paul any anything else you wanna mention. We got some stuff to talk about. So yeah honestly. I finally hit sixty two pages on on my script. That's sixty. two pages is an approximation of what it will be typed. Currently the whole thing is handwritten. It's one hundred pages. It actually starts in like one portion of a notebook and then goes into a different portion of notebook. I started in the wrong spot. So but it's been going really well. The deadline is this sunday for three different contests and it's it's definitely solidly eligible for to a little bit squishy on the third one. But why not you know. Yeah not running all three. Yeah well best of luck with it. Thank you okay. I did see that sky tilly. He's doing something with writing as well. I think he poses. Yeah he just finished up his master's thesis. I believe which. I'm still waiting to read. Wow that's awesome. Okay well cool. Shall we get into the movie. Yeah why not. Well you get into our review of army of the dead and we do have a clip. So take a listen. We are putting together a crew for a job. Yeah i pay. We'll make two million dollars for one day's work two million dollars. That's my share. That's just for me. Two million dollars if it pans out hundred percent i meant yeah. You don't know you know the risks. Or why would. I want to know the risks two million dollars. It's a lot of cash. Listen i hate my life so deeply two million dollars my life would change drastically thank you. yes sure. You don't wanna know had something to do with the helicopter. Where do i side okay. So as i said army of the dead is on that flex and in some theaters. It's directed by zack snyder. Obviously and it stars Dave batista allah pernell omari hardwick ana daylight rod guerra. Theo rossi matthias schweighofer. Sorry about that Nora are necessary. garett delahunt mataro hireyuki sonata. That about it. yeah. I think so. Okay and the synopsis is following a zombie outbreak in las vegas a group of mercenaries. Take the ultimate gamble venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted. So yeah this. One is zack snyder. Second movie of the year. We did His justice league cut a while back. And yeah paul was how'd you. How'd you feel about this one. Zack snyder movie. Like i. there's that's. I think the most blunt way that i can put it. But it's not zack. Snyder of of three hundred years where he believes in wide shot and deep focus Zack snyder of the apocalypse footage that he added onto the end of justice league. That has a arrange that are actors can move forward and backward and completely be in or out of focus and also. There's no sense of urgency even though they're supposed to be a sense of urgency because people have time to say things at the most inopportune times love that. That's probably my my scattershot repeal on how did you feel about it. I guess. I liked it. Why i mean i wouldn't say i mean that's like being pretty kind to. I thought that it was entertaining to a certain degree. I thought its biggest issue by far. Is it's run time. it's too long brutal too long. I my heart sank this morning when i saw those two hours. Twenty eight minutes. yeah. I don't know who has the time for that but no overall i thought it was still entertaining it was. I liked how it was just a zombie movie. It didn't feel the need to be some big story for something or you know. Have some huge deep. Meaning aside from just being canada gore fest as it were but that being said the run time hurts that. Because if it's just gonna be potatoes and meat is at the term meat and potatoes It should be like ninety minutes. You could take an hour off of this movie and it would be better. And that's a problem no for sure. I mean this movie. Has i guess when. I say like you know it has all of the zack snyder. Problems of justice league. What i essentially mean is everything takes too long unilaterally every moment is dragged out to just like such excruciating detail that you end up not having time for any of the things that that make character that make a moment land. That make a moment interesting. Because we're constantly just stretching everything out to the most inopportune moments and i think the theme of the movie is parent hood. If i had to really take a shot. It's it's maybe parenthood. And you know i think that it's fine. The have you know. Zombie action movies and things like that. But i still think underneath it. You still need to have the movie. Be about something. Bizarre don't necessarily have to be allegory. But i think that your movie should still be about something just on at the matic level. And if i'm searching for seen than i think you've you've just shot the point of the whole thing sure. Yeah i mean i guess. In terms of the run time it takes forever to get the team together so many people if he kind of had the whole like the suicide squad kind of issue it takes forever to set up people because nobody knows who these people are but at least in the case of suicide squad at least they're comic book characters whereas these people the cast all right. I think everybody was fairly solid but the characters are so unknown. Yeah that you don't really care about them. You just want to get to the action and honestly some of them become unlikable. Yeah like some of their performance line not the performances but some of the some of the act like characteristics of these people become grading. Yeah i don't know for me. I guess it's for me. It's it's an unlikable movie on a certain level. Just because this is this is literally just a gratuitous amount of all the things that i find frustrating about him the on the no song. Tech's the the overly long opening credit sequence. Like i love a good visual montage opening credit sequence. That was the longest longest also brutal font and color choice yodel and so for me. It just really. It's the classic issue of style over substance for him. You know he is a director who honestly should never be allowed to write pen. Anything that he directs he needs the people who are actual literal writers. Who on the page. Don't give him the time to do any of his 'isms no and a lot of his things worked you know. He tries to do these big operatic stories in everything but two things one. It works best for three hundred. And then probably watchman because that's their style you know here. I didn't need that sensibility with this. You know musing of of new forms of life being created by zombie. All with it. I don't give a shit about your weird zombie. Baby mid raises more questions than answers. And that's the other thing. This movie is a lot of setup for things that either. Don't pay off or don't get answered in any kind of way and aren't left. Vague four regaining debate about what it meant. It's literally just a refusal to answer a question. Are they robots are. They caught in a time loop wide a some of them bleed blue. I don't fucking know. And honestly i don't think he knows either for second. I thought one of them was a robot because multiple of them look like robots. there are multiple. there's one that has globe luoyang. Blue glowing is in the pool scene. One of them straight up has a terminator head that you essentially get to see. And when he dome shots the final alpha zeus as he's called they put the blue blood effect into his red blood as well right so they set things up. Oh when the water rains rainfalls on the on the shoulders. That's when they come back to. Life never rains. No they check off ghana thing and then they just sort of go never mind. They talk about the black with his saw you know. Don't touch my saw. He doesn't use the saw other than in the opening credits. you know. it's all of these little setups. The just kind of go nowhere Through the sequel paul. And they're planning a prequel that's going to be a rom com heist starring dealer directed by dealer. That's real they're planning on some real it is. they're planning on doing a netflix. Animated prequel called Of the dead. Las vegas this just sacks night or going off and creating his own little cinematic universe where no one can tell him what to do because they're his characters and it's his rules and it's frustrating. Ch- yeah yeah. I agree with all that now in terms of the action. So they you know they get to the point where they go in the quarantine zone finally and then you know. You aren't as they tease in the trailer there. Are these different versions of zombies. Like it's kind of like a mix of like walking dead zombies but there's also kind of like. I am legend superhuman zombies. They can some of them can ride horses. They're organized smart. You know fast. Whatever felt like caesar but azzam ambi- yes and there's also the alpha alpha male zombie. Who feels straight out of rob zombie film. It was so cartoonish the alpha female zombie which was actually okay. I didn't mind her like well. Actually her design is okay. This movie like snyder movie feels pretty derivative and her shriek sounded like straight out of lord of the rings. I thought she was ring. Rate for a second. And i thought that that an to also talking about things that are set up with. No payoff is. There's this whole thing when they get there where they say. All the people are taken off into this this casino and they're they're never seen again and we have to offer a sacrifice or an offering and they built up so much like it's going to be some crazy thing but then it's just a guy who bites them that's it. The victims will be taken one by one and then somebody will come up and bite them. And that's it. It's not so weird ritual or something that not that. I needed that. But it's like why set that up at all. Who cares especially since the rules are very unclear about. What these zombies do you know. The alpha is the one that turns them into other alpha's but then we also have sham blurs so does him biting other people make them alpha's alpha's can only make sham lers no idea he has no set of rules. There's this quote the criminal and has that's like breaking rules is an interesting having rules and following the inside of your story is and you know whether even if you disagree with some of the some of the plot points of christopher nolan films. That man has a lot of rules about every universe that he puts together. And it's very clear. Yeah here. it's just stuff happening. But it's not as schlocky as a b horror film. It's very serious for me. Yeah it's kind of like mortal kombat issue. Yeah yeah that's that's a good point He just tries. He just tries to hard. Yeah bless them. I mean he just he. I think this would have been more interesting. If michael bay head directed it it might not have been better but at least it would have been a little more cartoonish whereas this. It's so it's trying to be glossy but kind of dirty. It's so noisy the you know the as you're saying the song choices be done with the classic jazz. Stick so tired of it doesn't add. Class does not charm. It's just feels very early. Two thousands kind of thing and it just becomes so messy and it's terrible. I think that. I think messy. And i think trying to harder definitely too great great points. Honestly you know it. It wants to be like super dark and moody and than it has also this great action sequence of a woman doing gun fu on zombies but then the room is so dark that i can barely what she's doing. It's like he's afraid to let me see the movie right you know. There's a moment where the queen's zombie literally backs out of focus and we see her for like a good few seconds just wandering further into a lack of focus. It makes his movie feel claustrophobic. Not grand yeah. On that point there are a couple spoiler things that maybe we could touch on towards the end. If you're cool with paul. Yeah sure. No i i agree. I think that's probably the best action sequence in the movie Just because of the the stakes of it. I guess as it were but i do have a big logic is with that whole sane without resolves you know the the scale of it. You know two and a half hours at times. That was kind of interesting. Just because of how ambitious and like how self-indulgent but also when you're done with it you think like not a whole lot has happened and what are you left with you know. Yeah because again. If this was a ninety minute intense you know high stakes thriller. That could be great. And i left with not a whole lot a fun time but in this it's like you're you're sitting there for a long damn time. Yeah you're you're in the seat with a whole bunch of you know one note characters wear also time gets whibley. You know because when they're first looking at the news broadcast. They have almost two hours than they talked to dealer and they've got ninety minutes and it's going to take thirty minutes. And then when dealers done they only have like thirty minutes and you know it just gets very whibley again. I guess that's also sort of the issue going to some of the action sequences like going the resolution of the of the woman who does the gung fu to get into a little spoiler. You know she obviously doesn't make it because we have to have a body count and people stand around and just sort of stare for the longest time before anyone pops off around to try and save this woman. Okay now though. I mean at minor. Spoilers ahead okay so you can skip ahead a minute or two if you don't want to hear it so with this thing that that's was one thing that was confusing however the biggest thing is so there's this whole previous scene where garrett dylan hunt who always plays a sleazy guy. He bolts the door that she's trying to get out of which ends up resulting in her death and she sees him do it. She knows he's done this. And in the minute or two that she has in front of the entire group. She doesn't say anything. If it were me. If it were me i would have said. Hey guys just so you know. This guy just tried to bolt the tower and get me killed. And then. Hey i mean if i get eaten whatever but at least it's like i'm gonna leave you with something you know. But she doesn't and she has. She literally has free time or she's not being touched or anything and of course the whole thing of them not trying to save her as you know. That's terrible but that was the other show at. Yeah no i completely agree with that well and for me you know i guess like at a at a certain point i also just had an issue with how she ended up in trouble because she was following that glow stick you know and she just for me kind of got to lost You know like where she crawled to two then look around and turn to see where he threw it. She should have just looked and seen you know that. Obviously that other way where there were fewer zombies. Not deeper into the zombies. Should have been the way to go. You know something should have been it. Felt like she just wasn't looking around the room at a certain level Yeah and also in terms of the garrett delahunt character. Who's this kind of security guy. Who's making sure everybody's in line. You have no payoff with him. Nordea really figure out why he was there was he was just there to get the head. That was it. Yeah so other teams have been sent unclear. If if it's a payoff again he sets up but doesn't answer. We'll talk about that. In a second with spoilers i guess so. He's a new head of security based on that information because he's like oh. I don't know anything about this incident. But he's been set there specifically to get the head and he makes a deal. I couldn't tell you exactly. When they made this deal with the coyote that he would make sure that they got out alive only if he had the head that's why she agrees to help him take it and so his his whole thing was that tanaka never wanted the money to knock only wanted the head. Okay i can get that. I guess it's very quick in the movie. Yeah me and my wife is second to figure out exactly when they had made that agreement. Yeah like we really quickly figured it out right around the time that they were trapping it. Yeah but also what's frustrating is his. His fate is not that satisfying because it takes away from all the characters who he wronged if it took place in some of the other characters who kind of lied to her duped or whatever it would have been at least a little bit more satisfying and also the scene that seals his fate. It's right out of the revenue. Alekos watching the leonardo di poorly done. Yeah and you know honestly for me the trailer. I watched the trailer for this movie stupidly. 'cause it's it's it's a three minute trailer and i hate that. They've started doing three minute trailers. it's way too much movie I was really disappointed. When i saw the the. Cg tiger in the trailer. I was like you know what that could have been a really cool reveal in the movie and so then we go into it knowing that there's going to be this crazy. Wild zombie tiger but lake. It's still roars like a regular tiger. It's still pretty much acts like a tiger. Like you know for me. There was nothing really wasn't an alpha. Or was it a sham bealer. I don't know and it didn't have anything horrifying about it beyond its zombie tiger. You know it wasn't like the the weird skull bayer Or a annihilation that comes into the room and has the shriek. That's like the the sound that the last person at killed made right as its roar. Not saying that. They have to do that but like a zombie roar. I feel like should sound different because zombie people sound different. Yeah yeah that whole thing was pretty lame. I think it was a cg waste. Yeah a few other non spoiler things score is by junkie xl who is just crushing it this year. I mean he did. Justice league had king kong this. I think he might have one one other soundtrack this year. I think you're mistaking being busy with with doing meaningful score tomato tomato and then now also one little thing. I'm so tired of the safe cracker artist. Who's obsessed with safe cracking. Who he treats the safes like their his wife or something like he's just fascinated. He calls some beautiful all that stuff. I mean the performance was okay and it wasn't too overdone where i was so tired of them but i'm really tired of that quirky character who does adds a lot of comedic relief with no real point yup with that now how day teesta. He's kinda you know he's going to be knives out to you. Know he was in blade. I'm looking forward to look dave batista. I absolutely adore. I love him in guardians. I love him in blade runner. I look forward to seeing him in dune. I'm glad that he's going to be a knives out to. He out said that he did this movie. For the following reasons to get a lead role the paycheck to make connections with net flicks. That should automatically think tell you a lot about the head space of some of the people who were involved in this movie. At least these honest. Yeah you know. at least. He didn't pull the tom hardy with venom where he blamed that shitty movie on to make a movie for my kid portal Not poor tom. And let's see. I feel like there's not. I mean the gore. There were a few creative kills and this you know but they really didn't amount to anything. I thought some of the like like wall slamming or or like when people are crushed. That stuff was all right but after a while it just becomes kind of numbing you know. I was livid that that child died in the opening credits. I was like oh good. I'm so glad that you wasted mommy. Sacrifice let's see. Oh the seen. The last ten minutes are so extended layout and it feels. They're they're purely also right out of independence day where he's on the field Like just kind of shameless there and it feels like it's just there to set up a sequel. Oh yeah like you could easily cut it with a date battista and his daughter and just be done. You know my wife. And i think that it was supposed to be a post credits scene. But they didn't think that anyone was going to sit through six minutes. The previews after this fucking thing. Yeah or six minutes credits. After this thing to stick around for a lame setup for a sequel. Yeah so you know i mean all that being said it was at least somewhat refreshing. I hadn't seen zombie film in awhile and you know it was kind of cool to see so much money put into it. I think i liked it more than just a sleek paula. You i i liked it more than justice league but barely for me. There are three things that hold this movie back. Which is that it. It comes with all of the problems of a mediocre zombie. Movie all of the problems of a mediocre heist movie wrapped up in all of zack. Snyder's worst possible traits as a filmmaker. Yeah yeah see. I feel like there might be a few other things but one. We just jump on in despoilers. Spoilers okay. yeah if they should we give star ratings. Yeah we can give star ratings before. Spoilers you go one. Wow i gave justice league a half. This one gets a one. I'll go. I'll go three and all i have to keep us above water. No no no so okay. Well yes spoilers ahead for army of the dead so if you if you don't wanna have it spoiled egotist check the show notes and skip ahead so okay. Let's see anything that you had in particular. Yeah i think that it's i. I honestly don't know if he has an answer on whether or not. They are caught in a time. Loop and i think based on the fact that he wants to do a sequel. The answer is no right and so then why on the f- in the crime the hell did you do any of what you did yeah. I don't know why he did that. Paul do you think they're in a time loop to be honest. I didn't give it any thought until you said it. Because here's the thing. How does it creates too many plot holes. They introduce this concept but then they introduced the concept of may be zombies robots and then they introduced the whole. You know maybe zombies or pregnant but then garrett dylan hunt has no information about the previous teams. That have come through either that or he's lying. If tanaka was constantly just sending these people in you know why did he continually just keep using this whole notion of a bank heist when really they could have sent someone in cut off the head that they needed and gotten the fuck right on back out. Furthermore how does the coyote not remember taking in any of these people because they also set up this whole thirty eight hour window. That doesn't actually mean anything of security being lessened but really they just needed the coyote to get in and they can only fly out and the coyote seems to be the only one who knows how to get into the place right and they luck upon her through his daughter so like i just have a whole slew of issues with some of the random stuff that he puts there that's meant to be meaningful. I hate the zombie. Baby the dies for no reason. It feels like you just wanted to show a fetus. It was like a lion king image in the air. Amazing have moore sitting. I was gonna ask you not spoiler. Who's your favorite character. I was digging the coyote. She was she knew the deal. We'd love to get a spinoff series with her on her quests. I don't know. I honestly don't know what Probably i guess dealer and And i want character name probably and mr vanderhall choices. What about you just the coyote. That's it okay. I liked dealer well enough mostly because of the actor. I thought that he was charming. In part that was pretty Could go either way on being charming or horribly annoying. I think he trended on on charming more for me. I enjoyed mr vander ho. Because he was again a pretty enjoyable sort of straightforward part. I think that he got his part. Well i think for being like a digital replacement did pretty well. I'm assuming that she only had however much time. Chris elliott gave in a take and so i thought that she did pretty well The character is not great. But i thought she did well. Yeah let's see other spoiler stuff. Oh yeah but like with the the thing of the scene where geared. Dylan's character locks. The coyote in in the the great. The you know place that's it would've been so satisfying for her to have gotten out and seen him die. Yeah but it's like again. He dies away from everybody. So it's like okay. Well he's yeah sure he's dead which is nice but there's no real satisfaction from anybody that you're following. Yeah yeah you know. And and i think another thing that i have is that some of these characters had Sort of like specific skills that never end up really meaning anything beyond dealer and Peter's the safecracker in the pilot is just kind of i guess the coyote everyone else is just kind of a gun right with no other point than just to be a gun. You know pass della is it not pass It's on a daily rivera. I'm marie cruz. Her character is supposed to be like a mechanic. She doesn't stick around on the roof and help patch up the helicopter and also death. I don't know if i'm supposed to find it funny or not. Because i almost laughed but not really was that probably because her neck bone springs out of the side of her neck like ring and then she smiles before she falls over dead after having her head wrenched around. That was a great moment. And then you see her on the floor with her head like and it was so telegraphed you literally right before it happened. My my my wife was like oh. She's about to die. Yeah it couldn't have been more obvious. Yeah also. I think they really the candidate towards the end. I think really missed out on having some scenes in the elevator with zombies and there and music playing they kind of get that with the the alpha guy but it's not really that good because it just opens the door and music is playing. I think would have been nice for them to like literally. Show them in real time like clicking the button music playing sitting there. You know la la and then going you know. I guess the issue is just that he wasted too much time elsewhere. Oh you yeah you're not. I hate it that some people's deaths were pretty sorta lehman straightforward compared to how overdone and over thought some of the other deaths were garrett dylan hunt gets the very protracted death by tiger whereas What's his name. Mikey guzman ends up getting bit accepting that and blowing himself up. Because dave batista is wasting his time shooting a lot of people and i also hated that our body count was so condensed released to just the end of the movie. Yeah i wish that we hit lost some people along the way to where it was almost a bare bones crew there at the end. Yeah well i mean the issue is with that. Is they only get going at the end of the movie. That's got a bunch of setup there so we'll and my wife and i were talking. It's it was. It was that moment from the highest episode of rick. And morty where like they show up and no one really seems all that uninterested in coming everyone's automatically like kind of ready to go back into it. You know for me. I think it's most highlighted when Vanderhall was like man. I'm haunted by visions of zombies. But you know what may be. Killing more of them would make it cathartic complete turnaround from what he just said Yeah so it's it's a mess paul. It's a matt is. It's a mess that you gave a three henry. I'm easy to please. Hard to please. Honest i really am not. It's just that the general standard has lowered. Yeah all right anything else. About army of the dead paul. I don't wanna see nor i. This is my new resident evil franchise. It's just as painful. i think. Yeah now paul. You must have loved the banter between daypack teesta and his daughter about the food truck rolls really funny mention it. I didn't necessarily mind too much of it but the one that did bother me. The most was actually the lobster. Roll one. just because like i don't like lobster rolls. Is that all the you're gonna serve. I understand grilled cheese. I understand tofu. Then you go very niche. Yes he says. Everybody likes him. Sorry to break it to you. But we don't yeah anyways. Yeah anything else for you and we do. Have you can get excited. Our listener question concerns. Zack snyder so okay. I guess i'll just say this and this'll be my final thoughts on it. I think that he really needs to figure out what it is that he wants to do. Because the truth is his. Autism is urged. Liz is very very close to becoming self parody. Yeah and i think that that's evidenced by like you know him using hallelujah in the trailer for justice league like he's literally almost becoming a joke version of who he is perceived as for me as a filmmaker And he keeps on leaning into his worst impulses. I don't know where this filmmaker went down on the bed. The wait hold on there. We are blessed there. We go three hundred. I don't know where that filmmaker win. But i m yemi to sorry zach. I just watched that two and a half hour movie after watching your fucking four hour movie. You owe me an apology. Yeah so all right. Well yeah we have a question that concerns al-zaq so we'll we'll get to that. But i guess for quickly for news we could touch on attornal. Yeah if you're down so yeah. This is a new moral fell coming out in november and it's directed by khloe zahle and who did nomad land. The certain and the cast is huge. Bunch on sambol. Yeah would you and that. We just had a new trailer in the last day. Or so paul. What do you think of it. Pretty classic marvel first trailer marble pretty much. Their new form going back to like guardians and ragnarok is like trailer one is a mood setter trailer to is a plot center so this is very much just a mood setting trailer You see it in low key as well like go and watch the first trailer of key. Go and watch the second trailer of loki Same concept so. It didn't tell me much about what to expect in terms of like hard plot but it had a lot of nice visuals it does look very on location which is something that the cast too stressed a lot in the press leading up to this movie. It's apparently a story that takes place over centuries i'm interested she's a an a. You know a hot young filmmaker right now compared to some of the other people that are making movies currently you know. she's an up and comer. So i'm i'm certainly interested I think that the cast is pretty much great. The only one that really makes me nervous angelina jolie. Because i don't remember last time yet that i enjoyed her performance. So you know. If i'm gonna get like pre malefic angie than than maybe there'll be something there sure. How'd you feel kind of the same. I haven't seen nomad land yet. But have i liked it. I mean i liked the for the most part. It's a little bit of a dour one for me I found it on the bleak side. Sure yeah not a whole lot to say about. I guess visually it looks okay about the same as most marvel films but a kind of like the some of the locations that it seems to be taking place at this kind of coastline desert setting and i think the cast is pretty good. I one of the reasons. I want to see it is because of angelina jolie and so yeah i i don't know anything about the the background of the characters or anything like that so i'm purely just going off on who's who's involved but you know we'll see. I'm sure it'll be interesting especially coming from Close al so yeah comes in november. Yeah any other news for you paul. Now you know. Kevin spacey's cameo in a movie directed by the guy. That was the original django from the spaghetti westerns. Really who franken niro. Great so okay. Well i guess on that note. We can touch on listener questions. So the film buds podcast at g. Mail dot com where you can reach us at also. Facebook twitter and instagram at elm buds and at the film buds dot com. All of that stuff is in the show notes. So if you've listened before or if you're listening for the first time feel free to send us a question or comment whatever We love hearing from people out there and the one that got this. Was i think sometime last week. So thank you for your. Your patients comes from alexander. Alexander and his statement is short and sweet. He says. Tell me your thoughts on the new. Zack snyder film school series. That netflix has just released. Thanks for the show alexander. Thank you alexander. So paul. Have you heard of this. No so i. I have an article here that From collider dot com written biopsy hoots written by luke highland and the first paragraph here. It says netflix has launched the first episode of its new youtube series snyder. School in which blockbuster filmmakers zack. Snyder takes viewers through his creative process and making a film from screenwriting paul's favourite and storyboarding to editing an advanced post production. The four episode series will be released weekly on the netflix film. Club youtube channel. So paul you must be through the roof. people can learn how to make movies exactly like sex. Tyner paul's losing it. He may not stay with us. He's losing it so just when he thought there wasn't enough zack. He's coming at your hard with more. And he's injecting. It sounded really sexual. He's he's giving it to the masses. Please speak man. I have no words for this. I i could. I could scream you to ha- knowing listen to a word this man has to say. I might watch an episode out of morbid curiosity just to do what i do with a lot of things to do what i did with the amazing spiderman to do what i did with his bb s and man of steel. I sometimes like to pop the hood on things that i think are terrible just to understand why i think it came out that way. Yeah so might. I watch an episode just to and understand where this man is going wrong for me as a filmmaker. Yeah i might. But i honestly don't think that there is much that current zack. Snyder can really offer any young filmmaker as advice and this to me feels like an extension of everything that he does lately which is an ego trip. Paul you won't check out the screenwriting episode. That's probably the only one that i would that. I would watch because i think that i think he's a great writer. Yeah well said yeah so. Yeah that one. I haven't watched it yet alexander. But i perhaps i will. I don't have interest. But maybe i will. I should do my own series. Where i take individual scenes beats moments from zack snyder's filmography and show how he's essentially step-by-step ruined. What should have happened in the scene. I would love that. Yeah i'm gonna start with how. He takes urgency out of people running away from tidal wave and justice league. Oh yeah yeah a well. Anything else about zack snyder. In general paul. no no. yeah so yeah that one you know if you have any interest it's on it's on youtube. The net flix film club youtube channel. And thanks again for your your question alexander and the phone butts and the film. That's podcast at gmail.com. Once again is where you can reach at so send us stuff your way. Whatever even just to say hi. We like to know that people are actually listening out there and it's not just numbers so or bots so all right you want to end up with some pics of the week for sure you know what. Here's here's an enjoyable movie that you know. Even if it doesn't do anything. I guess all that revolutionary in terms of its storytelling. It's a really solid enjoyable. Movie that does not overstay its welcome. It has one little issue in the beginning. But that's okay. I finally saw the mitchells versus the machines and i enjoyed it. I thought that was a really fun time. I watched it with my family. I liked it more than ryan. The last dragon still have. I had a really good time with it. I enjoyed that one It was it was a fun time. I'd like to say that. I've watched more. But honestly i've been pretty tied up with with writing honestly so a lot of what we watch has been sort of. Oh you know what we watch the goofy movie and that movie for me held up pretty well. Yeah the original ninety five. Yeah that was a pretty pretty solid one. Okay well i have. I have a few things. we watches. I really watched permit ious. Which i love. Yeah great movie. Love slow underrated talk about setting up a cast of characters. Pretty minimally but each of them interesting. Oh yeah then. I- rewatch watched rocky. Which is a classic. I love the whole the whole franchise really but the first one is still a classic from for sure. Then i watched knowing with nicholas cage policing this i know of it. Okay and directed by alex press. Who did i robot the crow. Gods of egypt and i it has some interesting ideas and some good moments. I think it did not hold up as well as i hoped it would. It gets pretty goofy towards the end and a lot of logic issues. That kind of heard it a little bit but still working. It's interesting at least kind of ambitious and different than i watched. Twenty one jump street. The channing tatum jonah hill comedy and overall i like it. I think that there are. It's a little too constant at comedic. trying to trying to be funny all the time and it just joking mile a minute kinda thing you know with jokes right and it just becomes a little tiresome but i think that jonah hill and channing. Tatum are both together. And so it's still pretty good. And and the supporting cast is is good as well then. Last night. I re watched the weatherman directed by gopher men's ski and starring nicolas cage about this whether man whose life is just absolute crap. His family is a mess. He's just not happy he can't find real inspiration or focus or passion and it's just about him trying to find all that and i think it's a. It's a pretty underrated film. I love gawronski. Of course but it's a kind of under the radar interesting nicholas cage performance. Who is great. And i think and so. It's worth watching. If you like kind of dark comedy. Dour character studies. It's it's quite good and that might be about it for me. Yeah thing that's that's about it or all that's worth mentioning so okay. We'll paul any anything else. You wanna mention. Yeah you know. i'll i guess. I'll my last thoughts will be this. I take no pleasure in being the he'll i don't like being the person who who has to spank the movie that behaved badly like i don't enjoy being the person who looks at someone a whole team of people's hard work and goes it didn't amount to much but being overly soft on things not saying that you have to rip things new asshole that i sometimes do but we have to be critical with our art. We have to demand better standards even from the things that are meant to be cillian fluffy and enjoyable. Because if it doesn't do that then it didn't hit the mark and it wasn't that you know so. We need to be critical of our films. And you know if. I need zack snyder. Ever you know will i ever be this abrasive with him. No probably not. But i mean maybe but you know i'm saying it out of care and out of a real place of wanting everyone to to be the best. You know filmmaker storyteller that they can be and i like sex snyder's earlier stuff and i wish that he figured out why he was making films then why he's making films now and what the fuck happened in between men. Well said yeah okay. Well yeah i guess that about. Does it for the show sadly this week now next week paul any ideas. Anything come to mind. Not crew ella Well the thing that i will say is have been talking with henry wilkinson to try and get him on at some point. He's he's a big disney guy. Maybe at some point we could review that so we could get him on to talk about it potentially but I'm digging the punk rock vibe paul. No i'm taking big time. I don't know crazy pitch. How do you feel about night of the living dead. I i like it all right. Cool all right. We'll do an old school zombie picture. Yeah are yeah. So i guess we'll. We'll shoot for that for next week and yes so stay. Updated on film. Buds dot com all that. Oh yeah oh yeah you. You mentioned that last week didn't you. Yeah i think that either that or the original donna de come up. Oh yeah yeah so yeah. We're cool shoot for that next week and yeah so that's pretty cool and yeah we'll paul thanks as always man for taking the time and best best of luck with here. Yeah cool all right everybody. Well enjoy your summer. Try and get out a little bit safely of course and yeah. We hope you enjoyed it as much as as much as we did and listened.

Oh please be careful because you have no idea how old the milkin scotty b.'s. Studio f already. Green without the serial. If you were caught not wearing green on saint patrick's as in you could be pinched. People could really. Oh yeah that's how. That's how i always. I always got pinched. Because i always forgot about it because it's not a big holiday for indians but i appreciate it. Okay cassette tape green in any of those labels now. There's nothing no fairness scary. Said he only has five t shirts so that's one of five that he's wearing today all right. What do you guys want to do today. 'cause i'm just going to eat my lucky charms. We'd have a game we play. We always liked playing games when they usually does the games. But he's on a phone call. Why is your phone call. He knows this is the time for the podcast. Why would he take a phone call. Eight am i the only one that an elementary school. We made irish soda bread on saint patrick's to know. Yeah we're what that is. Oh you never. What was the question. I say alimentary school. Am i the only one that irish soda bread every saint patrick's day. They brought us to the kitchen and we made irish soda. Cool can't do that anymore. Scotty no you can't can't have the holidays that enough. I anything not trying to take care of the interview anymore right. So we're we're so we still have no plan for this fifteen minute. Morning show podcast. We could play thing It's brody we. Were talking about scotty soda. That should give us twenty seconds should cease it together second by second the soda bread and had sex with it. We gotta show. I'm just afraid he don't have anything gross to contribute nothing going on soda scary got yelled at because he went on our show and said saint patrick's day basically just for american irish to go out and get drunk and i'll actually all of us is what you excuse for americans in general to go out and drink you yelled at someone on texts scary. Shut the fuck up too. Many irish americans. It's much more than an excuse to drink. What a loser. Loser is a stereotype about about the irish the saint patrick's day and drinking a holiday for rigging. And why do you think stereotypes because they are slow. All god shot enough to. They're explain yourself but know who most irish people. I'm no make jokes about drinking on saint patrick's day drinking funerals use it. You know the irish exit you we all know about this holiday and i hear that in ireland. It celebrated a lot differently. We asked here on this show. What is why do we celebrate saint patrick's day in america. And all. i'm telling you is. It's an excuse for americans to drink like the non irish people. Now if you are irish is please let me know what. Give me more background. You're like coming. We'll garrett's irish ask him garrett garrison. It's scary if you have to go with the defensive. Well it's a stereotype so it has to be true stereo types. Don't you look at the shirt you're wearing with a career belly. Irish guy with a bow tie in a beer belly l. True right of course churn okay. Some people can play into it in just like many people amongst friends. You either go with the joke or you take offense to it for many irish catholics out. There this is a very very big holiday. You know the okay. That's out there so to stereotype out there you know like does every single. Italian meat meatballs the pizza. No do they do. Somebody crass archaic laugh. Because i have a sense of humor. I'm not triggered. I'm not a snowflake about it. That's all everyone. We scary every. Italian is in the mafia. The fakest laugh. I've ever heard what scares point. Is the whole hold on. Hold on hold on. There is something to be said for the fact that they're saying this is the day that they drove pagans out of ireland. There there's a serious there is a serious note to why were commemorating this day. I hear. I wish someone would correct me if i'm wrong right. Did you wanna wikipedia. Looked it up. It said the same thing. It said that this was not only driving out the paganism but the start of christianity in ireland. So maybe some pagans get sat on saint patrick's day because we thought about then. that's fair. what does that have to do with. Drink are more celebration. Don't have anything about about. Getting wasted is about celebrating right but like i feel like every every brand in america also takes advantage of it like you know. Think of all the liquor brands that are out there. It's everyone does things on saint patrick's day kissed me on my rich and the and the shirt on garrett who reminds you. It's more than just doing shots. It's about celebrating with your friends and i'm okay with that. The thing is i would like that. Why is that. Not more at the forefront. It's more of a question than any exit. I feel like i should research. That's the opposite of an irish exit. That was deliberate. Getting my ball and going home. These lucky charms are fabulous de paul's patrick's day. Really about the the the mic. Shake the mcflurry shake crispy cream. Donuts for saint patrick's. They are amazing. I'm so excited crispy eating doughnuts. Have that's far stretched out but it did take me long so it council points points by the way. I had my first green bagel this morning. Now i've never eat one before. Because i always assumed they taste differently and i got i got convinced the one and it was fine but i always hated like because they look green. I didn't wanna eat them. I would like other things if they're the wrong color. You don't eat them. You don't need things green typically though so that's correct so that's why they won't eat a vegetable bagel. Apparently it's just food coloring so out of all of us frog is really the only one who is going to be out celebrating today. Yeah i'm going out to a little party little friend's house party. And where are you going. Froggy i'm going to the beach here. We we gave some. We did a little contest here on the radio station here in jackson and so we are having celebration at culhane's irish pub on atlantic beach. It is set up outdoors following all the proper protocols and whatnot but we are still having some sense of normalcy and doing things to get back so danielle is going to a smaller version. Just was with some friends right. Yeah one family and we're just like the husband is is irish and so we're she tries to do something special for him which is nice and so we just. We're going to get together tonight. I'm going to have some corn beef sandwich hanging out with my schnauzer. You to get drunk with the guy like scary predicts. I do not think so. But thank your typical. You should so. I lived in boston before. Obviously i moved to new york with all of you. And it is crazy on saint patrick's day in boston and every year. Our radio station will do these. Giant parades and people get so excited and for me personally. It was the most miserable experience because its freezing right now in boston. And you're just outside and of course all the drunks are throwing stuff at you. You're on a float waving at them. You mean those liquor served. Oh yeah hi rich people in boston. It's crazy also. It doesn't matter if they serve the liquor they're coming out with their own liquor anyway. It's a parade route. I'm gonna win. He's yeah he's going to boston. You're right scare. You could get about four hours from where you are. Go go you know. It was a couple years ago. I celebrated in delray beach hosted the saint patch parade there and we were on a trailer or some kind of afloat float in the parade and it was it was a blur of afternoon speaking. Gloria remember when we used to go to that The event in west palm beach party boat sunny son fest was the name of the event would always put us on captain mortgage captain. Morgan party barge right. Which i'm telling you right now. I'm surprised at thing is still afloat to be honest. Yeah still seriously. I mean we we would be on this huge party barge with hundreds and hundreds of people in a dj and the music things rocking in guys. I'm gonna be back on shore the couple of times. I thought we weren't gonna make it out. This is my idea of celebrating today. But it wasn't saint patrick's day. I don't know but i don't know who's who wants to say something. I'm tired of trying to stay. I have any angles. Can you come up with saint patrick's day other than know scary gets yelled at by people who are irish on the phone these dates and some nice laughing. We need you cast. What was gotten so used to have all those great saint patrick's day broadcast tavern on the green. And all those other places that we go. Yeah connolly's yeah. We used to do every saint patrick's day we would do the morning show. And we'd sit there and smoke cigarettes and get drunk you this day in nineteen ninety eight that we met david brody on saint patrick's day. How is it true. Brody yes so. I had been writing parodies for the show from january to march and scary said. Oh we're going to dislike remote. You should come down and meet everybody and it was the year that there was a problem back in secaucus in the in the home office. Remember that half the show had to go back. Yes and wasn't there. So i met elliot and danielle the other people were back in the studio. And i met greg a who lied to me about his history and radio and told me a whole story about his huge radio career in florida. And now you guys begged him to come back. And then of course never seeking. I'd work with him or get to know him he. He worked one day in florida. Came crying back quite like he describes streak on. Yeah so. I was establishing myself in florida. And then they couldn't do the show without me said they beg me to come back and now here i am again. Show how to pile into the creepy van with no seats. Yes we going we would sit and then someone would make attorney of the one hundred van which had no seat but the spare tire was back. We sat on the spare tire. That was our seat and carpet. I remember the one of the first events i worked as an intern was at a tavern on the green and the parking was so expensive and i wasn't getting paid anything like four twenty five. An hour was ridiculous so i actually paid to work that day because it costs me more to park than my paycheck and back then i couldn't expense anything so i was just like well. I guess taking them for the team works heo the so. You told scary that you know what what the tradition is. If you're not wearing green on saint patrick's day right. I believe nate is in the same boat as scary. You get paid the guinness. He's got bringing teamed irish shirt nipples are still going to get it absolutely down the hallway. He's got him cornered because there's no we need to escape because dead end back there. Oh my god that video looks like something you would see in one of those like trimbe documentaries where all of a sudden. There's a scuffle everything that was around. Now there's an empty chair back. Johnny's gonna take us down know what's he doing now. News on the move. So weird thing the studios. We haven't been there for so long now. Pay let them see. Let's let them see you. Unplug look at it is are norwegian those ships there okay. That's good okay. Oh that's you know. That's always been there to see nate in two screens. The toilet seat. Yeah that looks like a shit hole for god. That's our table snacks back sir. What's on the table oc- next these days running low snacks have been there for not a lot of people there. So how does it become a shithole. I don't understand three of them get sent to us. We just leave around this all of opening a year ago. Remember that day. The coffee machine is on the fritz. Water water all over the carpet. Only you guys just left. What have their shit away. That is a disaster box of tampons. Down there what do you know because everyone's just abandoned this place on march eighteenth and we never cleaned anything which left it in my defense on march seventeenth. Okay can't talk shit about danielle's desk ever again that's her desk is probably pristine compared to whatever the hell that was just happened at least it's collectibles. Looting your desk there's nothing left. i gotta go. We gotta go over and we're really talking about nothing show. He's talking to your dog for those listening. We got a problem.

Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation

"Hello everyone. Welcome to nineteen twenty three main street home of the daddy daughter. Disney traveled podcast. We are your host. Might bella brenick. And i'm amelia bell graddick and today we're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open beaches. I wonder if you could go to like a restaurant down the way because there are restaurants down the beach if you walk far enough if you could go from those restaurants and just walk all the way. Back with a keycard. Yeah that'd be interesting. I don't know if there's any. I think the beaches public property in florida. I'm not quite sure so you might be able to do it. Yeah if you walk well. Let's talk about that. Just like in alani there are other beaches now personally like i said the vero beach beach itself. Course there's the turtles on that beach etc. But i love that beach sometimes it gets seaweed but hey it's a beach sometimes there isn't it really depends on the year. I guess in how the ties. What's storms have been out at sea and all that sort of stuff and i was watching the net flicks pirates series that just launched and because there's a pirate theme to the hotel. It was pretty cool because they talked about. When piracy was forming in a lot of it was in that area. Nasa was the home of the pirates in the bahamas but they said the biggest sinking ships of treasure. Was i think eleven ships in this spanish and they all sunk in a hurricane rate off the coast of vero beach. They said it's not reassured. So of course. The pirates went crazy descending on that to steal all the gold. But that's right. Oh so. This is the whole area. It's a really cool area and definitely check it out but there are two other great beaches in that area that you can go to like you said so if you go south. It's the town of aero beach. The actual proper town resort is north of the town which is good because it's not as quiet. Are it quiet. Not as busy but there is a beach there. That's the public beach for the town. It's way more crowded so you can check that out because we like to do go to some restaurants in that area but the one we really really love highly ration inlet state park the sebastian inlet beach just north of the hotel. You gotta drive. get a car. If you're going there you'll want to rent a car in is. It's so nice because it's a paid beach and they have waves there too. It's that's where they're surfing because sebastian inlet is there and there is a natural break. There's appear as well so you pay like i don't know ten bucks or whatever to get in but that keeps a lot of people out so it's the beach there is even more empty than vero beach resort and it's actually sort of a nicer beach if he can believe it's a bit bigger and there are some awesome waves. Yeah so if you serve you'll be closer to the pier but if you just wanna go boogie bodyboarding. It is awesome there. There's really good waves. We love going there. I wonder if you could camp at that state park. I'm not sure if there's camping there. There is camping. Like i said back in alani at the colella beach. There's a campsite there. Some of the locals camp there so but that's a good question that would be something to look in. Sebastian inlet sebastian state park camping. Yeah check it out because it's a really cool beach highly recommended so disney's vero beach resort. It is true ocean beach in disney style. And it's definitely a really good place to go if you wanna disney beach vacation and we go there in the summer and in fact i would recommend for all three of these that we're gonna talk about go in the summer. You wanna go. When the when the oceans are warmest disney does not have a california motions. Get cold yeah. The oceans well cold lake warm ocean so put it this way in the summer. You're looking at oceans in the eighties. Usually so really nice and warm. I mean i personally don't mind cold oceans but most people don't like to swim and sixty degree weather then. You're one of those people. I mean you'll jump in it but you don't wanna stay in for very long for the douay ocean. That is one of the benefits of the man made lagoon beach at alani a he. They don't heat it but the sun heats it because it's like it's heated because it's cut off sort of from the ocean and it's pretty calm and it gets pretty deep out might be fifteen feet deep of yeah like it can get deep. But it's it's a nice peach it's kid friendly. You can walk in. Whereas i would say at vero beach you know. All beaches are kid friendly. But you're gonna wanna pay more attention especially if there's waves there there's no riptide or undercurrent at the alani resort beach. I must jammed in california. Yeah we'll there are there are there can be riptides and there's definitely undercurrents in vero beach and especially at those other beaches on awas who but watch the signs. There are signs. And i'll post when this week from hawaii in particular believed the signs when they say dangerous. Rip them not just there for cool special effects or not there for your instaphone imaginary liked to put up signs. Although they do they do disney. Loves a good sign. So do i actually but take care at those open beaches in vero beach in in and in on oahu in really anywhere in the world but just pay attention to the signs but they are marked so the thing is the alani. Beach is very family friendly. It's rarely are there waves. There would have to be a pretty windy day but just outside that break there are some pretty big waves so of course you can see them and you can walk out to the rocks. There and supreme need to watch the. The rocks are a nice spot for photos to and there's a part of the rocks just south or towards honolulu. Climb will not you can climb them. And also when the tide goes out tide pools so you can see little fish get caught in there and there's a so you know be don't step on known step on them be good to nature but it's really not killing animals in the sand. There's all sorts of little see life trapped in there and it's really neat to watch so really great. This is what you get on the authentic beaches of these resorts as opposed to the good disney beach. At disney's beach club resort wonder what people would do if they put a crab in storm along bay. I'm sure there are. Oh a crabs in storm along bay they might think it's a crab them while they're probably just run away but you will see those definitely unbear- beach there's tons of beach life in vero beach including cells shells and shark teeth. Which i love finally writ like round actual spiral shells that are fenwick shells and all sorts of real shells. So get out there early on the beach. You'll see people as well with their mental tells metal detectors. Please don't be a metal detector burson but unless you're the one who lost something you wanna find it. You know where you were sitting. But i digress. So those are two alani and vary beat top to both excellent choices both great for summer vacations both really good hotels that are fairly large but they do book especially alani which has reopened and then there's the third one it's a bit of an odd duck a bit of an odd duck. I would say oh. That's why i did a accent for that. This is disney's hilton head. Island resort sc in beautiful south carolina in hilton head. But there's a bit of a twist to this resort first of all on the beach. It's not technically on the beach. It's on the water but it's not on the beach so first of all hilton head vero beach and alani are all disney vacation club resorts hilton had in vero beach are fully disney vacation club resorts and alon is half and half. Yeah alana's naughty naughty. Maybe that's a hawaiian word. I don't know but alani is a bit of both having said that you can stay at any of these with as well. So they're not exclusive to disney vacation club members. But it just means that you can you can if you want. Get a room with a kitchen and stuff which is always fun at a beach like a vacation to have that extra option and they'll have outdoor grills as well so the fish you can assists or steaks or whatever you want to make any kind of food but hilton had yes so hilton. Had i guess disney when they built this one could not get beachfront property at least not the size they wanted. So there's inlet there and the resort hotel itself is built on the water on a waterway and it's sorta lake port orleans in a way the way it's on the water like riverside so the hotel is unhealthy net island but and it is on the water but it's not on the beach however they do have a beach house. Can you count dissipate resort. I think you can so what they did. Is they got an amount of land on the beach atlantic beach. I believe it is right on the ocean there in south carolina so wide open beach just like vero beach not as warm but pretty warm can be pretty warm in the summer but it's about a mile and a bit from the hotel so they do offer a shuttle now the beach house. You can walk. Always you could walk in. There's also bike path of walkman combat. Yeah so you can rent bikes and do that and what they did. If you've been to disney's vero beach resort. you'll know what i mean. Or if you haven't i'll explain this. But essentially what it's like if you've been very beach resort is. They took the pool area and sort of the pool area. There's like a little sore room and they took that and that whole area is what the beach house is. Oh so you go from. There's also pool and everything at hilton head island at the main hotel which is on the water on the rivers inland. I would call. It might be called a river inlet. But it's it's ocean but it's probably brackish or freshwater by their around the resort but then on the ocean front there is a whole building. And you know there's a restaurant there's a bar there's a blow this change rooms and then you walk down to the beach on the little boardwalk just like at vero beach resort so i have a feeling they took that idea and just sort of built it there because they could only get enough space for that portion so it is a beach resort. And you can go to the beach. It's just you can't walk out of your room and walked down to the beach like you can add alani or vero beach resort can but it will be quite a long walk fair enough. It's gonna be. it's just over a mile. I wonder can you fish on these beaches. Yes yes you can. We often see people especially malaria innocent. Animals they don't necessarily first of all if they're eating them. It's cool and sometimes it's just catch and release but we do see in the beach in particular when we go on our morning walks. There are definitely people surf fishing casting off the surf out there. I don't see. I haven't seen a lot of the matchy catching fish but we have seen a few. So there definitely is fishing on those beaches and there's fishing on the river water inlet also at hilton head island. Okay yes it can rivers is better. You can fish off the dock. It's well you've done that although you didn't like it when once you actually caught a fish felt very bad for the first so i'm nice kind hearted and we catch and release. So the fishy went back into the water. Now my question for you other than swimming although actually maybe that wouldn't even be your answer. You don't like swimming. What is your favorite thing to do on any of these beaches. I like beaches in the morning. So i love getting up in the morning going down on the beach when you often come with me if not every day in when you. Don't you leave me a nasty note on disney letterhead by. Did you walk without me to get up for the crack of dawn and go down to the beach when there's not many people on it. I like getting sunrise photos. I like you know looking for shells and just sort of walking along the quiet beach in the morning before the you know beech daly beach. Tanner's come along. And so based on that i'd say your favorite beaches probably zero. Then i think it is. There are also sea turtle nests at hilton head on that beach but not as many as vero beach that i've seen yes so over for if we're just talking. My favorite beach added disney beach resort. Yeah one hundred percent. It's the beach at disney's vero beach resort even with the no see'ums that do not exist in hawaii and i don't know about hilton had because they're typically their first thing in the morning or later at night in hilton head. We wouldn't be doing that because ellen's getting up at the crack of dawn to walk a mile on. Maybe we should do that the next time we go there now and just tested out or let us know any of you locals in hilton head in that area. Do have no see'ums on that beach. Do we need to be prepared with all of all of our combat gear for no see'ums when we if we want to make a sunrise track along the atlantic beach. But yeah i would say that for me is my favorite. What about you. You've got the alani cove mugune. You've got the vero beach beach and then you've got the hilton head beach which is more of a late morning beach for us. Just because we have to travel the little route. I think my favorite beach is probably the alani beach because you can swim in that ocean. 'cause it's more like a pool is like a sort of. It's like a natural pool. Yeah i like that because it is. It's pretty natural. But i also like the very beach because you can hunt for shells in the morning and there's not as many shells in hawaii. Yeah that's true because of because of that little inland. And even i noticed when we went to the other beaches there were some shells. We weren't there in the morning though. Yeah but normally like if you go to at any time of the day here are millions of show. I mean along the whole beach There's always massive sort of washed up areas with thousands at least thousands and thousands of shells. That's where i look for shark teeth whereas alani in the manmade be sandy area. Because it's not it's protected from the driving ocean. There's no shells there or very few. You can find a few few go along the other areas but even on the ones on the north shore. And that it's not i don't recall as many shells lonnie and even though you didn't answer my question what was your. What's your favorite thing to do on the beach besides swimming. No it's the morning walks. That's my favorite thing to do. That's what i said and hunt for shocking and hunting for shark teeth. See that walking out. Walking is your favorite thing to do when you go on a beach vacation or just. I would say hunting for shark teeth then. That's my corrected answer to suit yours. What is your favorite denver shells on ding for shells. So i mean swimming. But that's kind of audience wilmington but you know what because it's calmer at least swimming in that one as much like a pool. It is like a pool so if you dislike pool if you want real ocean water that's calm and warm you are going to love the lagoons money and then if you like me and you prefer wide open you know a bit rougher surf. There's plenty of places to go all around. Awas who the three of my favorites i listed earlier and the the lost beach is also on that island as well the beach whereas lost this lost where the tv series lost was filmed is just a up the other way from alani. I totally know what lost is quite a drive though. So what or you can go on a boat or yes we went. Well we're going to save all of those for our alania so today we just want to focus really on if you're thinking of travelling again coming out of this pandemic and you want our beach vacation and you want disney magic with it you may or may not have known about alani disney's vero beach resort and disney's hilton head island resort. I go alani and pick hawaii so there's a long way to go. I just think it has the most disney. it's more. It's the most dignified in my personal. But here's the thing. Hilton head island is very small. The resort disney's hilton head. Island resort is very small and books up quickly so if you are at all thinking about that check right now immediately as the show because it could be booked up if it's open it's open but i'm sure we'll be open for the summer. Vero beach does a little bit easier to get into but who knows this year right. They're talking about a travel search. Who knows anything who knows anything but there may be a real rush alani also books up quickly so devouring travelers. But i would recommend any of those three if you wanna real disney vacation and you don't want it. There's no parks there. It's just disney magic beach style at all three of them and all three of those have their own sort of cool vibe bureau. Beaches pirate oriented but not crazy smelling urine. Pirates of the care ride. It's subtle alani. Is of course hawaiian. And he'll head is like a nineteen forties. Vibe surf sorta win that area. I started to grow up as a popular area for tourists. So all three of those are great and if you did not know about disney beach resorts. I hope we've wet your appetite. Lots of information online saying yes to wet your appetite all right. Let's go that. Let's go with that so we hope you enjoyed this episode and we're getting excited about getting back to the be we're gonna hit one of those beach resorts for sure ourselves this summer. Yeah fingers crossed so follow us on social media at nineteen twenty three main street. We'll be posting lots pictures of all three of these this week. So join us. Check it out comment and if you're locals at hilton had let us know about those. No see'ums on that beach first thing in the morning i really wanna know that we have disney inspired designed to nineteen twenty three main street dot red bubble dot com s including fiftieth anniversary. So check us out there as well. 'cause we know that's coming up right. Thanks everyone for joining us again. We truly appreciated. We love your feedback and we hope you have adjectives a over.

"Julian Nashua got a new GIG last year. Keep the entire state of Florida float has sea levels rise. It doesn't matter sadder what side of the aisle you're on politically. Everyone has come together as Floridians really understanding. We're beyond that point of what those issues are but rather how can we come up with. Solutions Solutions Her role. In the state government is a first for floor home. This is the adapt podcast. I'm Brendan rivers the reporter at W. J. C.. T. News in Jacksonville. Florida adapt as our online magazine about what people are doing to help northeast. Florida adapt to sea level rise in climate. Hi Michio. Today's guest has a unique perspective on those efforts. One that's new for Tallahassee in twenty nineteen something historic happened Republican governor Rondi Santa's appointed a chief resilience officer a brand new position. He created to help Florida deal with climate change and sea. You level rise so our resilience officer. I would just say. Look at her resume. I mean she's got a PhD. She wrote her dissertation in resiliency million. See by looking at things like Hurricane Katrina which to me. That is what we want someone that's GonNa look to see what we need to do to protect coastal communities and it involves evolves rising seas. It involves things like coastal erosion And also involves things like being more resilient when you knew have hurricanes so are we all good to go brady. You're good on this end over. There were said here all right. Well let's get started. You were appointed in August correct on the first swift is a a chief resilience officer and why is it important position. Yeah yeah well you know it all started with how you'd even define resiliency when it comes to the ability to adapt to changing conditions Shinzo trying to prepare and withstand and recover from disruption But with regards to this role it's more of a coordinating role to work with all the departments and agencies to kind of come together As far as what I would specifically do you know to me. Some of the key areas is being able to try to catalyze some of the Private and federal investments that are needed for our state state Trying to obtain funding where we can for various projects throughout the state working with local officials working with mayor's Serving as an advocate in and actually a resource if anything To really be able to help Cut some of that bureaucratic tape And help accelerate projects where needed overall sounds like the focus is really on coordination communication. Absolutely I mean how do we. How do we support local of innovation? How do we get the word out there about the solutions? I mean there's so much much opportunity it's not all gloom and doom for a great state and it really can drive our economy in a lot of ways you know. How do you get the best and brightest minds and have that open and transparent ends parent information out there and make that available to really foster an environment where we could really accelerate issues such as flooding and sea level rise? I want to take a second to explain why environmentalists feel Julia's appointments such a big deal for Florida for almost a decade climate. Change was kind of a taboo subject at the state level within governor and now Senator Rick Scott unofficially banning the term according to the Center for Investigative Reporting Scott Denies Those allegations but in a twenty fifteen state senate subcommittee meeting meeting. Lawmakers tried to get his director of Emergency Management Bryan Kuhn to say the words climate change. But he wouldn't do it. Here's Palm Beach Democrat. Jeff Clemens in his colleagues asking coon about females requirement. That states have a climate change plan before they can get emergency preparedness funding. What were those words you were using US climate change? But I'm suggesting that maybe as a state we use atmospheric reemployment that might be something the governor so my worry obviously was was with these dollars but in a more general sense that we as a state have to come up with some sort of plan in order to to be able to make sure we keep our our preparedness dollars for hurricanes. I'm assuming that it's something that you're going to speaking with the governor about in in trying to take up so that we make sure we don't lose our dollars in the future Yes senator and our next State mitigation plan is due to feds in two thousand eighteen so we have some time in which to have that conversation so even though that takes place the starts in March of two thousand sixteen we don't have to. That's correct but I but my understanding is at this point is it will choir that future. Versions of our mitigation plan will be required to have Language language discussing that issue the issue that you mentioned earlier regarding fast forward a few years and Florida has Julian. NATIA WATT so. I'd like to learn a little bit more about you as well because I think people are paying attention to this issue. They hear bits and pieces of what you're saying But they don't really know much about you yet. So how did you get to this point in your career. Well you know. I started off as an army veteran and You know it it really. You struck me when I was deployed In various places in Afghanistan and Iraq. And as I I looked at the the challenges and issues from a national security standpoint join it was interesting to also see the fact that there wasn't running water power outages challenges with resources. How that all really tied in to do the the national security aspect and so Between I've worn many hats whether it was in Washington. DC or in diplomacy but being able able to build upon The way other departments and agencies of work together whether it's in clean energy whether it's in Looking at the nexus of environment armament and national security and climate change. I mean it. It really ought became such an interconnection that you know I. I knew that this is something that I wanted to to pursue and and help make a difference as Cliche as that sounds and so You know being able to take these experiences and apply that here to the state of Florida's tremendous from my home state. Especially what have you been working on since you are pointed at been traveling all throughout the state mainly take stock and inventory and how we can really understand where we are today so we can kind of build on our plans and our strategies overall. So I've I've been everywhere between Jacksonville Panama City Orlando Saint Augustine. Fort Lauderdale Miami. Just I was just in Key West. I've got a few more trips that are upcoming but being able to really take that stock and inventory of what you you know. What are the vulnerability assessments? At some of these local officials have been doing Is as you may know. The compacts that have now evolved Down I was just down in Southeast East Florida For their compact climate summit. We've got northeast one. We've got to east central Resiliency compact that just did a signing ceremony Being able to work with all those compacts have have been tremendous so I've been putting together a a long list really right now of of what is existing. Assisting what are we. What are we doing it when it comes to resiliency? What are some of those assessments and really trying to inventory A lot of that that could help build Really a list or repository. Three of best practices and lessons learned at this point in time and he's been traveling around and meeting all these people and learning about what all these communities we're doing Is there anything that really sticks out in your mind. Are there any anecdotes that you'd like to share. Well first of all. There's a misconception that it's only just on the coastlines that we have these issues and we tend to forget there's also other factors like precipitation Inland flooding that we have to also consider aging infrastructure You know the last four hurricanes raw category five or dealing with stronger storms and and so those those preparations you know sometimes you know the mindset is just well if you're on the beach that's the only only only folks that we're going to be focused on that's absolutely not the case it's amazing to see there are a lot of similarities and in such a willingness and I think now more than ever again with the governor's leadership leadership You could see doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on politically. Everyone has come together as Floridians really understanding. We're beyond that point of what those those issues are. But rather how can we come up with solutions. How can we really build upon some of the successes in the past and you know at the same time understanding? It's too expensive to go at it alone and we really need to collaborate and I just it makes the job more exciting to know that you could be part of this and really helping. Move that needle so it sounds like at this point pretty much. All of your time has been devoted to to networking and sort of information gathering. Have there been any other projects that you started working on up to this this point. Oh yes There's a lot of information and data that has been coming together but at the same time Not Every municipality or city is aware of some of the solutions. That are out out there. So I've been talking to various officials. In fact I was just at a mayor summit on flooding and being able to share some of the Technology Oh gee and solutions that are out there with other municipalities that were not aware that could also apply some of these programs. I've also been able to help facilitate an. It's still an ongoing process of course chorus with some of the federal funding. That's out there. I met with The female administrator on resiliency and we were talking about how we can get Florida more involved with the brick program which is building resilience in communities communities. And you've you've got all this money available on projects and being able to harness. That has been great. This is not post-disaster but rather pre-disaster funding ending. That's available so if you're taking resiliency measures on public project beforehand you know there's there's solutions to that and funding available for you. You've said you're working working on a statewide resilience plan that incorporates best practices from around the state. So what can you tell me about that plan. Absolutely so I'm working on a state wide strategy but it's in coordination with all our departments and agencies so we're pretty much coming together being able to for example identify some of the Infrastructure Investment Asman opportunities. That are out there what each department is doing and resiliency highlighting some of the top projects that we could really move forward listing some of the challenges behind that also. Oh having a communications plan will be certainly be critical. You mean you could be doing all this great work but if you don't get that messaging out there you can run in circles another section. Of course we'll cover other solutions such as natural infrastructure. We tend to forget it. It's not always a traditional seawall that we could work very closely for example with the Department Environmental Protection Really being able to improve community resilience by looking at this repository of case study so I want to be able to really list all of that out there. Come up with some targets and goals with the strategy then it can serve as a guiding policy so being able to have an opportunity to implement that will be will be I think critical to really again use some of the best data innovation and innovation. And that's out there and then part of that would also have an adaptation master plan where it can really give confidence to the market and lay a clear road map for the next ten twenty thirty forty years? What are some examples of best practices? That you've come across Well in addition to the natural infrastructure for example being able to promote the development of mangroves is key to certain parts of Miami and Key West being able to also identify other solutions such ages stronger sand dunes being able to address beach erosion being able to also push for protecting our sea marshes all part of this living shoreline concept which could be just as effective as a climate solution than a a traditional seawall as I was saying earlier so that was one that was front and center that I that I realized as I was traveling throughout the state that not too many of taken focus on Aside from South Florida that to me was Was something that road. I'm trying to push throughout the state to see how we can really incorporate that in some of the the planning for these cities as climate solution others would be Komo valves drainage systems There's quite a bit out there. I in fact I was just in London with a delegation representatives from all parts of southeast US Georgia Louisiana North and South Carolina where we sat down and listened to a lot of these British companies who are working working on their sewer systems and lay technologies and the businesses. They're out there so it was really exciting to see some of that technology so my thought was being able to bring some of that back to due to the state of Florida when it comes to drainage systems these are just a few examples I think that would be listed under some of the solutions Especially when it comes to also critical infrastructure protection and flooding overall by sea level rise. So yeah these natural solutions think every speech. I've heard you give and you've brought up several times already. In this conversation you talk about natural solutions like salt marshes and mangrove shorelines. It seems as if you think those natural barriers are better option than things like bulkheads and seawalls in certain areas. Yes Not again it's GonNa depend upon the train and what part of the state you're in so it's not a blanket solution a necessarily but it's something that should be considered as part of that natural area and how can the state go about supporting the use of green infrastructure like that Well big part of that will certainly be advocacy. And I know there's a lot of groups out there and even The local chief resilience officers who've been out and about also working with their communities and also with the private sector too so I think between the advocacy and making sure that all the stakeholders are at the table when it comes to the planning and design line for future projects that that's where it's critical. You're listening to the adapt podcast. You may have heard my voice. WJC Tease Morning Show. I coast connect. I'm the host Melissa. Ross but I also do some climate change reporting for adapt. There are sections of our city. That are going to be underwater in Atlantic Beach Mayor Ellen Glasser and the city commission are making environmental planning a top priority. We have to do things through our building codes through other efforts to educate people so that you know maybe we need to build above grade now this interview with Atlantic Beach Mayor Ellen glass are really stuck out for me because she likes so many other municipal leaders around Florida is having to project far into the future to figure out how to protect vulnerable coastal communities and she's acknowledging that some of these neighborhoods may well eventually be underwater. It's a sobering future that we're we're looking at here in Florida. You can check out all the videos and interactive tool to see your properties projected flood risk and even some Britain. QNA's based on the interviews in this podcast. That's at adapt Florida Dot Org. The adopt. PODCAST is a production of Wj C.. T. Public media financial support support for adopt comes from our readers and listeners with additional support from the Arthur vining Davis Foundations and the twenty forty foundation more at adapt Florida Boorda Dot Org speaking of local chief resilient officers. I'm I'm pretty sure. Jackson was the only major city in the state that doesn't have one. I mean even smaller communities are getting them now. Saint Augustine just appointed their first chief resilience officer and Jacksonville. I mean Jackson. Not Getting kid is hard to say Miami as but but we do have more shoreline than any other community in Florida because of the Saint. John's river so are you are would. Did you encourage leaders to create this position or create some office to really focus on these issues. I think it would be helpful. But at the same time you know I would defer to the local officials on what they think would be best within their county or city. But I I will say speaking from having traveled throughout the state. I've noticed you know. Some cities are the more active than others. But I like to go back to the part about having the regional planning councils. I think that more than anything has been tremendous because you're having multiple cities come together. which is I think much more powerful than just doing it alone? I think Jacksonville certainly is just as vulnerable whether it's because of the next hurricane rising sea levels flooding issues and so I hope to be visiting out there sometime soon and working with team. That's out there and I would love to talk more about regional efforts but one more no question about Jacksonville specifically efforts. I believe we're also the only major city that doesn't have a climate action plan. So that's something that you're encouraging doing all these local municipalities to start developing. I think it's important that yeah. Every city has a community action. Plan resiliency plan whether it's to prepare for the the next hurricane or to look at the next assessments when it comes to rising sea levels that's just important in any situation not just the cities but also even local businesses is all should have some sort of community action and resiliency plan so in our area the the northeast Florida regional council. Which I know you're familiar with has been leading the resilience resilience effort for years? But the General City Council decided to pull out of it this year and the council's expected to reconsider it again when when budget talks pick back up. So how important are or regional efforts like this. When it comes to resiliency I will say very important? it again. It's just too expensive to go at it alone. And there's there's a lot of best practices out there so having that regional collaborative effort is going to certainly be instrumental. Especially for that area you said at the southeast Florida Order Climate Summit that the most vulnerable and underserved people in the state are going to be the most severely impacted by climate change in its symptoms. We need to recognize that the most vulnerable and underserved people in our state are going to be most severely impacted by these problems to include affordable housing and take a hard look at specific measures to really ensure that they're not overlooked when a disaster occurs or that they're not priced out of a long established community due to rising insurance premiums Liam's or so-called climate change gentrification. What is the state to help these populations absolutely? So we've got working with the Department of of economic opportunity in fact. The governor was instrumental in getting more funding mitigation funding that is to help with affordable housing and so we're working very closely asleep the municipalities and how we can help distribute that But yes it's it's such an important issue that we can't forget for those especially from a socio economic standpoint in the national flood. Insurance program premiums are scheduled to rise significantly twenty twenty one I think and and rates only continue to rise along with sea levels could get the help motivate people people to stop living in areas that are at risk of flooding. Or do you think the state should be doing something to keep flood insurance premiums down. Well I think what we could do is encourage more more robust private firms to come in to help with insurance but I really would rather advocate the fact that if we could take more resilient actions that will lower the risk and I think think that's what's most important and it kind of goes hand in hand with insurance and and and the prices but you'll notice that those who take those resilient actions and those measures tend to get those as lower costs and insurance companies are wanting to come in and you're seeing actually an increase of private companies coming in wanting to invest in that standpoint. I know a lot of the local communities are starting to update local building codes and where they allow development. Does the state need to change. Its building code to better account for future. Sea Love Rice. well as I said earlier I'm still reviewing and taking stock. So it's it's all still under review at this time so up to this point in Florida the cost of adapting to climate climate change has been falling largely local governments what role these state playing in climate adaptation going forward. Yes that is true. We do have a lot of programs out there with especially with our department environmental protection where we could help match certain funding that the city's come up with to help with various resiliency projects in in addition to that as I said earlier there's also quite a bit of federal funding available. That's out there so I think it's important that especially in my role and within the state and the governor seven hundred eighty four leaning on this trying to harness as much funding as possible for resiliency. So you you frequently said that we need to take a holistic approach is to respond effectively to the problems brought on by climate change. What you mean by holistic approach well for example I was down to the southeast climate summit and watching and seeing how Monroe County and Broward County and Miami Dade and Palm Beach for them to have their own individual plans is great internally but at the same time if coming together in in in a compact to identify targets to identify goals projects That are obviously interconnected You know there's not necessarily borders his When it comes to these issues especially with rising sea levels so that to me is such a great example? And why why. It's so important that we work in this holistic approach which also just the issues at hand you look at you know. Higher sees stronger storms. It's all interconnected it's interconnected to our energy systems. It's interconnected to new education to our health. Clean Water Natural Resources we have to consider all these variables aspects when it comes to This holistic approach approach to climate change. I was going through your resume and the one thing that jumped out me. Was You helped build the first energy resources bureau. What does this division do? So it was a focus on the combination of the geopolitics of energy resources. And what that meant for our economy and our foreign policy we had a division division that I helped oversee as well on on clean energy and energy transformation as well as that nexus of climate and water and the programs grams that are available so the importance of this bureau was to really reach out at an international level working with various countries and being able to promote US US investment opportunities promoting US companies on energy projects worldwide and Also that technology innovation of energy whether it be in the hydrocarbon world renewables nuclear being able to come up with a strategy and all above strategy to promote aroan economic strategy. Here in the United States. So it was a great opportunity to really build something from scratch and being able to focus on the economics of foreign policy natural resources together again holistic approach for homeland. And what are some other examples of how you've worked on issues related to climate climate change resiliency in in your career before you were appointed to this position. Oh yes so. In addition to The Energy Bureau. I also was a researcher in Japan. In fact I was there during the Big Sioux Nami earthquake when you know we had a nine point four quake and then just thirty minutes later this big blocks Nami that came in devastated many villages and towns and so a lot of my researchers with the Japanese government working with the companies working with our embassy. That's what really inspired. Actually my dissertation to focus on natural disasters and rising sea levels and comparing such things to the United States for example with what what happened with Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy. So I it inspired me to kind of pursue that research and even teaching later on on climate change and understanding those impacts and being able to come up with a model and a paradigm of how we can approach this since these issues will continue to evolve and I also used to teach at the naval postgraduate school on that so being able to really step out of the bubble and think deeply about these issues really I think was very profound for me in the sense of how I take that back to Washington and develop policies in place where climate change environment natural resources and national security were all interconnected interconnected in a lot of your experience ties into energy so how do energy production consumption and security fit into your current role. It's it's all very much interconnected so when I did work in the Energy Bureau We also focused on climate change and understanding like what to energy technologies would help towards climate goals for example simple with the current role. That will certainly be part of our state. Wide Strategy is looking at energy resources and how that would be helpful in moving towards certain targets and goals for the state. But it's also about the interagency experience right. It's you're working with the Department of Transportation you're working with economic opportunity you working with environmental protection. You're working with health and education fish and wildlife conservation. I mean all. Those agencies are very important when it comes to overall resilience climate strategy and. That's that's something I was able to also work at the federal level and tying that federal interagency experience down to the state interagency experiences has been tremendous and when we're talking about building resilience to climate change in its symptoms How how do reductions in fossil fuel emissions tie in or is is that part of the conversation? It's all about having a hybrid right. I mean it can't nothing's going to be completely zero-sum when it when it comes to a particular energy resource but At the end of the day we do need to look towards cleaner solutions and this great technology innovation out there to help with that doing anything right now to specifically look at those changes in in energy consumption. Oh Yes oh yes And as I've been traveling I've noticed that energy has been part of those plans as well and I'm working with our energy office here and With our environmental protection department. So it's it's certainly part of part of that strategy. Do you think. Local governments have responsibility as well to look into emission productions. I think everyone has a responsibility again.

The man opens the trash can apparently which had been in his possession for over two months. After noticed the smell. He discovered a badly decomposing body inside inside that had been wrapped up. It doesn't say what it was wrapped up in the. I'm guessing it's not newspapers because people in florida don't read. The man believed that the trash can held personal items quote personal items. His decomposing body doesn't get any more personal than that personal items. The manatee county sheriff's office said that the unidentified man was keeping the fifty five gallon container for a friend who promised he'd come back for will.

Then the feces is this an ongoing spat that you have with a neighbor is that what's going on says here. The woman was actually able to get video of stealth men in the act which police say helped lead to his arrest. She got a video of him wiping poop in her mailbox. That's that's a horror movie right there. They say stealth is also the subject of three other criminal mischief investigations. What is it. what did he do that. He played bad boys. Bad boys to the police What happened did he tell the children that santa's not real what other mischief. He was booked into the county jail where he's due to have his first appearance on friday. That's it that's all it says in the article. This is not helpful. Any more information i wanna know what dirty drawings he left in there and obscene letters like. What is. I'm very displeased with you neighbor. Please enjoy my feces for the rest of the afternoon. I'll be back tomorrow with the dirty drawing of a naked person. Oh yes it'd be very offensive. You'll find it very offensive. Please give into my demands. I'll continue the mischief on your life. Yes that's right tomorrow. I'll walk by in a very fit. That doesn't match. how about that. Yes you won't know what hit you when you see my outfit. That doesn't match. I'll have very loud shoes on. Oh yes. I'll tap dancing your driveway. Your roderick sean. What is wrong with people in florida smearing feces as an adult doing this out of your mind. Andrews stealth men out of your mind with your mischief. Do time out of your mind you do time. It's florida friday. Only on weird af news qarese. Florida men makes videos of wild snakes and other wildlife biting him for educational purposes. David owen hump flett a twenty one year old from gainesville florida with only three names therefore not eligible for the street racing in naples. He's been gathering quite the following on social media this david humphrey after he released a series of videos of himself picking up wild snakes and letting them bite him. Yeah i watched one of these videos. He jumps into a swamp and grabs a snake. That's probably nine feet long. He's screaming it's python python. Then he lets it. Bite him in the leg in the arm. And i mean it's just out of control. You gotta watch this. Just google this kid. It's unbelievable these videos. Another one close up. He's got a tiny snaky. Let's it bite. His it bites them on the face and draws blood and then he talks about how the bite feels. He's like i'm going to rate the bite from one to ten on pain. This one's a one as it bites his lip and draws blood. This guy is out of his mind. He says it's for educational purposes though. There are over twelve hundred videos and images on his instagram account showing his bravery as the encounter snakes lizards spiders and whatever other animals that he finds in the wild. it's amazing to watch him fearlessly. Pick up the creatures. All of us have been told to fear. One of the things he likes to do. Is rank the bites. It says here. He receives from one to ten to inform his followers. What the experience is like one of the most intense bites that he has ever received was a large green. That bit him in started thrashing around. He said that one ranked an eight point five out of ten. Yeah there's one bite by a lizard that i saw and he goes. Yep going to need stitches after that. Very calm as well. He seems to enjoy this. David has done everything. From leading a horseshoe crab in black widow. Spiders crawl across his face to jumping into ponds late at night. And capturing a massive burmese python. Oh yeah that's the video i saw. He jumps into the pond and it's a massive python and he's screaming python as the thing bites his leg and his arm and his chest. He also started at youtube channel this year. Apparently where he's posting his entertaining video. I love how they refer to it as entertaining educational videos. The article has a few i. I watched one. And i mean out of control with. This kid is doing really crazy. He claims it's for educational purposes but what he's educating us. Don't get it letting us know how painful the bite is from. One to ten isn't really helpful. Information at the end of the day if i never plan on jumping into a swamp and grabbing a python by the tail. Okay so thanks david but no thanks this information and education that i don't really need i hope to goodness you don't die on camera. I really am no part of me kind of wants that to happen. No i don't want him to die. I don't i. Don't i take that back. I don't want him to die. I just you know if you're going to be the stupid though. You deserve to at least get poisoned. Once or twice i would say is that not fair. Can you guys agree. Do you think he should be poisoned. A couple of times. I mean karma is a thing man right. The other thing that i hope doesn't happen. Is that disguise videos. Don't inspire snake bite challenges. Where everybody's doing these strange challenges. It just takes one popular video for people to jump on board with the nonsense. We've seen it so many times. And i'm just afraid that young kids are going to think that they can do exactly what he's doing which is just grabbing poisonous snakes by the face and then holding them and playing with them and it just i just pray. Pray that that doesn't happen okay. That got really serious at the end. But you know i at the end of the day i give a shit. What's up weirdos. I wanna let you know that. I'm collaborating with a cool company. Called me millennial dot com. They make really high quality. T shirts sweatshirts in hoodies in various categories like memes gaming funny and they have a new category called florida man. Yeah that's right so you can get right now. A florida man.

Ed will often doesn't may have what we forgot will manso thing again poop what we didn't forget it. It's just a bit now. How often do you seal from? Brennan's The overmanned. Anytime I do I say it like right now like L. Reference. I just WanNa see said something interesting on the win. I think it's a cool talking point. Okay South Florida sports did JERSEYS BETTER IN THE NINETY S. Let's bring them all back. You name a team in south Florida. Bring Their Jerseys Aziz back from the nineties the panthers better now and I don't think so the closest one that's I feel like that's the only one you're close like really. Yeah yeah though. There is one thing that really bothers me about the panthers uniforms though you know how they have that line in the Middle Yeah. It doesn't go all the way around it stops at the back. That's true it looks stupid. Now it's separate from Montreal. That has a similar thing going on but it just it really irks me. Yeah and I think that's the only one that you could like I'll maybe that's maybe better than no trimming. They brought him back a couple of. Yeah I think the I think the heat upgraded in. Look Doc I duNNo. I like oftens better in the nineties and they are now. This is the worst uniform set. The dolphins have ever had basically rock those throwback jerseys a lot Zac kind of feel like well the nineties were. I feel like the ninety S. When did they switch their uniforms? and Go to the The more cartoony Dolphin. I don't know I'm and I might be wrong about the exact. Maybe I'm thinking. Eighty s early ninety s throwback jerseys that they wear those be there. Marlins were certainly better in the nineties. God in heaven it seems as the Marlins keep downgrading rounding with every new uniform. They're back now. I billy might disagree with this but I thought that the Loria Miami Marlins I didn't like all the different color color. It's fine now. I feel like they've gotten better. I'm still rather have the nineties but I like it better now. I like this script logo. The uniforms are pretty plain Jane. It's just why. Why are colors baby blue and red? What does that can? We just go back to like a traditional color scheme billion tiered. Yeah we could not do you like I color scheme. I don't think I like the marlins are probably the closest. I'd say to the nineties uniforms. I like more than these but I don't really have a problem with these. I think these are an upgrade over what they had before for the other one was just like there's so much baggage attached to it and it just look like Images of a CRAYOLA box vomited. I don't I don't really like the panthers I I think it's like yeah boring to me. Jumping am I liked that. This one is just like a panther on it. I really liked the I actually think the logos upgraded graded. You don't like Tensions Panther looks. It's supposed to look like a military type win something last night. Actually Okay Watch. The panthers are GonNa make the playoffs. Hanters are going to make the playoffs. They chase the goalie in that game. The offense is click in Buh Brodsky ski hopefully can confined a groove especially entering the playoffs. superdome got checked in the face. I was watching. It was one of these things where at the end of a play him in a player. We're just Kinda like cross-checking cross-checking each other in their bodies and posing player just went high with one and Cottam a stick right to the bottom lip definitely lost it to. I don't know that for a fact that he had to who was bleeding. The Guy got four minute major. I don't even know. Let's call the major. You got four minutes the The Miami Fusion had sick uniforms this guy ever give zero goals or not. I don't know how I don't know if he has a shutout I don't know I think it's backup as a show. Yeah it's all right though. I don't think it's him though. I think the defense is not great it. It's one of those things where he's not being hasn't fully come online this defense I think they need to acquire defenceman or to your thoughts. Roy Like I need to allow zero goals. I mean the puck needs stopped with him puck stops here Brodsky. The stops here. That'd be a perfect slogan for Goalie Matt for him. Be The real winner the last tonight. He's putting you to shame. Craig Miller Vini Rock and the the mustache dismember. He's got a massage. Almost look like a pirate has little twirls going. He's got a tour thing go. I'm telling you had. How long did you have a beard? I don't know I don't know you don't just show up. One day with a twirling Mustang. Did Not really. I don't have a moustache. Number could have had a twelve month stash. Maybe like someone posted a picture of it. I'll google it but I'm not sure there's no way. He just grew at twenty mustache overnight. That's a mustache transplant transplant. I Dunno man. It looks good though I was like. I'm digging in my right. Yeah I'm just trying to sorry. I'm looking for a picture to see if you think the heat jerseys were better in the nineties. Oh Yeah what'd you like like the Mesh. Look the one that they wear still sometimes the black with the heat. It's got the trim it's fine a shoot. I like the material now. They look cooler and their fighter. You know in the ninety S. The clothes were bad year. BRING BACK BAGGY CLOTHES. Not Saying they're bad. Add now and then the heat in the panthers. I'm with you there fine now. Not Saying they're bad but the heat logo is always bothered me though because why ball cauliflower because her the ball in the flame is cool but it's going through a hoop right and it's singed all the netting. I guess we're assuming we're accepting that all the netting adding has been singed why is the Rim White Fair Point. Have you ever seen it balls. Orange isn't it. The ball was orange. Initially now it's red but you concil and so explain why okay could just be red hot but the RIM is white. It's I I feel like they should do more with the logo. Okay what would you do differently. Our our ginger up entirely do yeah. I'm not entirely sure but I would change it up. There's plenty of ways to to signify heat. Yeah you should should do like the like that stuff like that missed that you see on the road found out like the you know. We're kind of blurry Meraj but doesn't Mirage. Is it blurry heatwaves. He's he's mustache looking at some red t-shirts. Sorry yeah that's a player talking to do just trying to give you an idea. There's definitely a mustache swirls. There let me see this. It's still hasn't this is who is this other guy obsolete sleep nine shaft Chidren. It looks good man. I'm telling you he. He owned it. He worked at On now it's the it's not not a great Adam telling you I think he's been the twirls you got something going on. I like it all right good job. Yeah November my right member but yeah I think that the Panthers Roy said on twitter yesterday and I grew them. Some feels different about this year is a little different. They actually have gotten off to finish touted the playoffs. But it's weird to see them get off to a good start as opposed to like chasing in February and getting. Everyone's hopes up so that's cool the other professional sports semen. I'm in town. The new one. Inner Miami had their expansion draft. What are we got? I think Lee win is probably the best name in there. But he's thirty three years old he was really good a couple years ago. Had A sneaky. MVP campaign was with L.. AFC last year was basically the twelfth guy on the best team team in major league soccer so nice added depth. Ben Sweat was like the top expansion pick so he figures to probably be a starter order at the. He's a fullback for those. He plays for New York City. F C got some fullback. The General Manager for Miami. Miami said. We're not going to spend our money on defense. We're going to spend our money attacking. Wow so we'll see. It seems as though into Miami's been linked to Louis Warez Sink Vanni David Silva none of them are officially he. No one has been officially signed and if anything Cavani is now flirting with Ellie Galaxy. So that'd be something. Cavani makes a really good replacement for his law makes a lot of sense and La Galaxy Opened Up Lockhart Stadium Against Center Miami. So that'd be a nice little story on. I saw that they have. I saw tweet that. They've named the they've come come up with coach but they haven't announced they haven't announced so we think who's best case scenario. Ray Hudson Rea- I pop that the former coach which the Miami fusion he always called it the the Fuzhen there's been like a former Real Madrid manager that's been linked to them. We'll see billy gates season tickets yet. nope with the grass. They put down because they don't start till March right. Yeah they put the grass down is going to die before you think water. You're GONNA treat it. I feel like that's just like let's put down grass so people see that something's going on. That would be a waste of money if that was. Just oh come on you. Getting the season is like a couple of months away. I was impressed by the progress because I had driven by there a couple of months ago and there was nothing and now it actually looks like okay. Maybe the this'll be ready for that I They have the MLS super draft which you know whatever Super Drafts in the states. You're going to get a player that went to college and played. Soccer occur which typically is in like the hottest prospect ever. Because if you were really good you'd be like over in Europe as a teenager so we'll see and then the next big event is the mega super draft no chance here's the Jersey unveiling the kits. Yeah I'd like to see those because we have have a beautiful logo. The crest is gorgeous and then hopefully designated player signing. That'd be cool. A big name would be would be nice Josie was he Marino's back in soccer team. That is a weird I was. I would've loved for Josie. MIRA weird fit very bizarre fit right. Hugely Bizarre Fed Spurs totten hand. Yeah Aka Spurs at Tottenham Hotspur. They fired Patino. Who's been really good manager for them? Been Very successful and I guess just points never actually had a trophy to show for. It made it to the Champions League final last year loss in the final deliver poor and this here. They are fourteenth the table and they pull the plug on put Schettino. WHO's probably GONNA leave this summer? anyways it was always like linked to Real Madrid Manchester United. So we'll see where he ends up going. But they bring in Josie Marino. WHO's been out of work since he was like go at Manchester Chester United last year? For those who don't realize Tottenham and Chelsea our big rival huge rivals Josie Marino managed Chelsea. Twice is my favorite manager of all time and Dan. I hurt your little. I'm a little piss off at Josie Marino. Quite honestly this is his personality like yeah. But that's a team like doing that too. I could I could let the Manchester United thing go by. But for him to go to Tottenham which is a team that I dislike the most primarily. This is I get why he's doing it. He wants to work and he wants to worked for a big club. But it's just a bizarre fit gotTA complains about a team not spending money. All the time goes with Tina never spends money out there an attacking team not a defensive team. That's really going to mess with this philosophy unless he's adapted so we'll see. Yeah we'll see we WANNA phone. Yeah Call Uh Billy how do we want to handle this. We WanNa go to Alex and David or do we want to set this up. What's this what's going on with them because you talked to Alex and then David started messaging me that he he wanted to call in so that the two of them are up to see? I was hoping that Alex now. I'm thinking now. Now thinking there was definitely Texas ex- exchange because as soon as alex got through all of a sudden you're like David wants to call it. Well what did Alex wanted. They're in cahoots honestly. I was thinking that it'd be interesting to talk about them. Clearing up like them. You know having a fake argument but he just wants it. Seems like Alex just wants to plug a podcast. Alex podcast. What is it about whatever you bring them up a numbers happen? They've they've turned into a apparently podcast. Cast Oh my God all right. Alex is on the air. Sure go ahead. Alex you say your case and then I'll bring in David in the moment all right only so it kinda started off as a con. I called called in the air. I just about David. Like what the hell do I care this random some like guys. It's a brand new thing about you. Know whatever French water but after that I in touch with them on Reddit after making the post so I say look. Why don't you call me? I'll call on her to. I will make a fight. That'll be great. And so we did turn out perfectly like timed out perfectly. And then he went to podcast together. I said Oh uh-huh maybe like if I did something like Dan lebatardshow style. podcast brought for science so eventually I just like kind of L. Sue. We didn't really get in touch with each other. But then I started with my friend. WHO's not a scientist? And then we kind of branched out. We got few scientists breath. We left scientists to come on so we got. We have a master's in cancer biology. We have an Undergrad in biochemistry and we have another medical laboratory scientists who blended up Coming in for us six people doing this podcast called psychotic potty. What's The podcast called to liars? It's called say poverty and it should be called to liars because these guys they fitted so you just Hoti. Yeah for the most part but we want you on billy scientists. 'cause you're so skeptical about everything so we weren't you on as like could guest cohost maybe complete dragons with a something like that. Do you want me to go to Montreal. More call you we're doing. We do online supernovae as little as we're not spending any money on this question low phases phone line whereas Montreal in relation to Oak Island. That's all I wanNA talk to you about. Yeah Okay Goodbye. He's done doesn't know about Oak Island in Canada. David do do you know about David. I know I know about Toronto and around here I don't I haven't I heard about islands. What's going on with you and say potty? I'm not onsite potted. He decided that on his own. When after our after we did our thing on the lower he wanted to start a? I told him what I wanted to do and he wanted to do his own thing. So go to go do your own thing. I'm GonNa do what I wanted and what are you. What are you want to do because I feel like Alex? Just used you Kinda to get his own thing because you were something that we were person we were talking to. Your someone fans were reacting to mainly negatively. But they're still reacting to and then this guy comes on he starts a fake fight. Hi with you and he just wanted to come on to promote his signs of the day. This Alex No. He didn't know that there was a fight going. Okay so he got me. I'll read it. He said you wanted to I. I told him to call it. I'm like if you WANNA say something so call in. I'm going to call in this day this. It's time and he's like I'm GonNa. I'm GonNa Talk French. You got something for you. And that's when I had my fat you. Do you know the journalism that happened in Montreal where the journalists the testing of the water. Yeah so yeah exactly so. I'm not going to go on about that but I told them what to do. And he started a podcast and he just asked me to be the next guest. I feel used. Yeah for real real using. Ain't nobody look this whole SAIPA. PODCAST was kind of like saying if it is. I just figured it would be fun to start. Okay and what better eight-year do something you guys do buffer science. And what do we get people to come on. And we asked him some questions like we asked this epidemiologist. We'll just from I. I told him that get things is like that. Yeah but no sport and we're only works in money is real so apply that to the science. The lowers already a scientific podcast. You learn things all the time on the lower but do you have. I know what you're thinking about right now so I I wouldn't get into the. Wow he does know. You're thinking it's pretty obvious. All all right guys. I regret this by David. I love you. Just feel a connection to David Not Alex. Yeah Alex Than Me. I don't know what's going on Alex. Do we get along. I guess we kind of get along. Right Voice podcast but David just says funnier things. I'm just looking relaxed on your show. Feel nervous you know what I you quit your show like gambling like I love coming on your show but it makes me super nervous to come on and I never know it's is GonNa be good or not and then I'm paying like long distance. Used to come on and what ended up being paired with the time and I think it's a gamble. Come on come on. Let me put you at these. It wasn't good. We'll talk to you next time. Bye guys here right now.

Aw Lump this into things you absolutely hate to see Portland Trailblazers fan sick of Hassan whiteside. Then Ben Simmons causing all sorts of frustration on sex sixers twitter. I mean hate to say I told you. I know it's a little early but this feels pretty great and to add to all of this. The Miami Heat are playing really good basketball. They're going to have I think they traveled to Philadelphia. Pretty soon here. That's a really big game. was that Saturday. I believe they have a Friday Saturday back to back. I'm not sure we're so we get the sixers on the back end of tobacco. I'm putting my excuses and draft. Sorry Kinda stinks and they play tonight. I feel like it's been a month. Feels like forever since they played. I understand having this break on the heels of and West Coast Road trip but it wasn't directly on the heels of a West Coast at home game and then like four days off. was that four. Dan's wedding to Dan the NBA to have like five days off right played on Dan's wedding leading the night of Dan's wedding. Yeah they were playing that night. Yeah they left early to go to the game. It was an eight o'clock game. That's why they weren't there for that long that they weren't having that much fun. Yeah but the Miami Heat are playing basketball. Did they play tonight. I think I think Cleveland all right so easy W Kevin love huge game. Well we'll flirty little flirty so adjusted ruin who is host of the chase down pod. Which is the Cleveland Cavaliers Pot fan of his because he follows me he re tweets like favorites? Everything he thinks that Portland is actually in the final summation for Kevin Love because that's hometown and his general vibe screams. Portland does this was in the D. M.. Sorry if I betrayed the trust. I'm not gonNA say the other stuff that you said about the Miami amy he loved to Portland makes sense for a lot of reasons but not Portland's bad in Portland is bad. He all watch. The CARMELO sat line at the very least I saw at one point was missed nine out of ten shots. Hey man you gotta give him credit he just he shoots a little rust. That'd be fine. I I have a group chat in which one of my friends is like a huge Carmel. He likes the shittiest basketball players. Like the worst. He once said Tim Hardaway junior better than Klay Thompson. That's that's what I'm dealing with here. He told me that Luca Danni was going to be terrible. I've actually watched him. He's going to be pretty good. Should be his twitter bio lyle said. Yeah so he was like when Carmelo had five points four shots. I didn't like it was non stop flood flood and then I knew something was because tex updates stopped coming in so Carmelo finishes with ten points all right four or fourteen from the field five turnovers five fouls terrible. That's God awful. I mean luckily Damian Lillard was out so there might have been some like you know stotts might have said to him. You know you got to be aggressive tonight. We need shooter. He's he planned it. I know you do. The guy doesn't play for full season and jazz drops into a starting lineup. That's hard for anybody but he also so I saw I have to listen to the sound of WanNa cut it up for national. But he I believe he was quoted as saying like yeah like he's still mocking the idea of coming off the bench. Still I have to think. Maybe maybe he was just joking. Maybe he was like doing a joke based off of what he did a year ago with Houston. And I'm like dude. You GotTa have you gotta be a little self-aware. Oh Jesus man why are we. Why do they think this is a good idea? This is not a good idea for that team scores. Like I get it. But they don't right. They don't need scores shooters. Hassan whiteside told me they had shooters they need to not have us on whiteside on their team is basically like they've been glaring hole here and also the guys just aren't shooting well but these are guys that you've got to imagine defensively. They're also not great. It would appear appear. Does he finished the season there. Or is this just going to be in Carmelo. It's something like that. They'll punt on this or Melo is going to get waived yeah. Parental is GonNa get waved and this will end heats go to some bad team. That's not gonNA make the playoffs. He's on a bad team. That's not GonNa make the playoffs all this one game. I don't know it's just see. He looked it was no. This is not from one game. This is from like his his final couple of seasons. I think Carmelo would have been honestly regarded as is one of the greatest basketball player still might be regarded as he's definitely a hall of Famer. I'm not here for the Carmelo. Anthony slander I just think he's older. Yeah and every time I watch Carmelo Anthony which hasn't been often because he didn't play and makes me so happy. That Dwayne Wade went out the way that he did right where it looked like dude could play for. Yeah one to two more seasons. Yeah he saw something in the tank that he was still like the teams best player. So I get so happy that he didn't have to go to Portland. Portland Word Double Zero Jersey. Yeah this whole thing is just why did they think this is good idea. I've got Lebron texting Carmelo a couple of weeks back amen. You really should give back in the league. Just because Lebron wants people to look at Carmelo and be like man. Lebron is even more amazing than he already is. Yeah you still got it. You got this man. Yeah if I'm using. dwayne Wade is an example of someone right in gracefully again. Bron this incredible insane. He's averaging being less turnovers and he has at any point his career with more assists. He's leaving the League in assists and that is that is a really good team. Makes me so happy that Kawhi Leonard. It didn't go there. They fit so great. Anthony Davis and Lebron James and Lebron James I love facilitator Lebron James. Lebron had really interesting comments comments. which was if I wanted to lead the League in scoring? I could which yeah absolutely. He's terrific it's a shame mm-hmm these big play so late. Yeah the the ratings are down obviously in the NBA. And I think like the logical explanation is this just Lebron's on the west coast now. Yeah I saw clay travis taken a victory lap on that for some reason a couple of Travis victory. He was talking about how the NBA ratings ratings are down and it's the most overvalued like a TV commodity all sorts. CBS Of College. Football is the most undervalued. What they're SEC? Sec Oh yeah yeah. Yeah I read that the SEC hired ca to handle the negotiations for the next contract so ca got the XFL that incredible deal ca runs everything by the way it was really nice to see Claire Danes Wedding. That's all around. The Internet of the group shot actually took it so many people that so thank you. Scared Appeals hearing today appearing. Yeah do you think he's got a case. How do you think he rolls in there? Like trying to look at the looking like a renaissance man from the nineteen seventies. I'm bringing a two dozen crispy cream donuts like that move. That's something that you can do just like like you know something that gives off passive twos. You don't maybe he does the. He's a pacifist. He's gotTa be wearing glasses for sure. He's wearing he'll wear like the nineteen seventy avenue south glass yeah myles Garrett go does it go down at all or maybe they just say fine. Just you can't go down from anything. Can it still indefinite finit or do they put a number on it. What what ends up coming from this is that it become? It stopped it ceases being indefinite. Yeah they'll they'll actually put a timetable on on it. which they should if they WANNA say out for the season into talapity regular season and postseason Senate there? I think that's I think that's fine. Finding Fair fingers crossed that. There's a postseason Lou poll. Even though Cleveland browns are not GonNa make this season I would liked to get my hopes up. Yeah I would like to get my hopes up as a browns play. The dolphins This weekend and the browns are actually favored by ten and a half points. Billy actually said something I I just thought about it right now in the last show the really bothered me yesterday. Yeah what did I say yesterday. You said that you weren't sure if you were going to Miami game. No that's not what I said. I said I haven't bought tickets yet. I'm waiting for the prices to go down. I'm not paying sixty five dollars. NFL Football Right. So it's not set in stone that you're going to this game. I am going to the game. You go down. Okay is that that somebody walked away from that. Now you gotta be there. I'll be there you got it. Where are you tailgating bullbar? Big gator. Now I like to tailgate okay. Yeah I don't know where would you. I guess that the grass parking lot racist which is a small little square where I think people are just going to be walking around with coolers just plopping them up like people will people's homes Bo- bar maybe people will offer like tailgate. Here I can park and Tailgate for thirty bucks. Yeah Park it's going to be in markings and be a mad house. Yeah I remember I went and I know this sounds horrible with us like I like to go to Marlins Games where there's not that many people because like in and out very easy not super expensive unlike in the the minority. where I I like might team? I don't WANNA say being bad but I liked the being poorly attended on certain days. There's a sweet spot right now. No they have a good crowd they have good crowds. Don't they had still he's easy. It's a breeze to get in and out on the high on that's pictures. It looks like they've had good crops. Yes you have they had good crowds us here. It's getting better but last night was kind of like. Yeah we use weeknights weeknight. Crowds there if you want a good time during the week night. Go to a panther game. MM-HMM EASY Breezy Roy. I saw your tweet last night on men feel a little different hottest team. Yeah man first and second period. That's the past teams S.. Like urkel opened up the standings Roy. IAEA let's start looking ahead to this. Where are we where we cited? What right now? We are in second back in place before points behind Boston Atlanta Atlantic. La yesterday it was a bad attendance day. fifty-nine percent full takes eleven thousand. All right so look at this guy we got some we got a buffer now between us and the and the wildcards thank well not really two points three points buffers between us. Okay it's pretty tight. I hate the NHL Stand Cedar we right now. Okay okay okay. Can I explain this right right. The division winners played two wild card teams and the second and third place teams in each division. Play each other cry. That's the playoffs and that was actually only see we got. It's actually the first time I had no idea. It's been several years and no one's ended right now. What seed what? Yeah I still don't. They will play the Canadians in the first round. Okay but one through eight B. If this were one through eight the panthers hang on. There's no doubt that if the panthers would be a four seed wow look at us. Is that true Roy. We'd have home home ice in that first series. Yes okay. Yeah you'd be a four seed arts royal having the second most all right. I think I got this. I got this figure out the thing to pay attention to the division standing there in the first place. That's obviously a good thing. And if they're in second place they're gonNA play the third. It's plays team in the first. Rewrite would have home ice if they're the sex so we have the right to be second or third at least in our division to make the playoffs. Yeah that's an auto the playoffs if your fourteen year division wildcard because there are two division feel like the two and three are also wildcards right if feels that way but who who would they play in the second round. BOSTON STILL BOSTON PHILADELPHIA. Yeah why why are we wasting in two rounds of playoffs playing your own division. A divisional playoff easiest. Why are they stressing division? So yeah I don't know I I mean they they put all they put rivals in one division but then they put all of Canada and Eastern Conference in one division In both Florida teams. It I don't know is it. Seemed like a in the playoffs. Maybe win one around. That's it or is this team. got a real shot. Does this have a real shot. This image as a real shot enough enough this surprising. HOW LITTLE TORONTO AND TAMPA Bay? They got a very very slow start. So that really helped the panthers. Yeah I just feel like Roy's like me where he's like an eternal optimist with his name like he's every year tells us that. Oh no they have a shot. You probably sent that tweet out and Billy's defense a couple of years recently where it's like. This feels different. No and I'm a realist And I think you're more of an optimist Roy. Yeah no me for a very long. Yeah Yeah I would say one word Roy optimist. That's true full ositive your life. How do you love your life? Like what is your Credo is what it is basically.

National has a nickname for this. Still live in Jacksonville. And Olympus gets from Jacksonville around like the landing and stuff. Well Oh so fun fact. Landing is closed now. What Jacksonville now so it died. They'd probably about five or six years ago. The only thing that was really there was hooters and like another bar and grill. Kind of thing But then a couple of years ago when there is that shooting from the Madden tournaments the landing basically sell off completely. So what What is the the place to be at in Freak Ville now oh the beaches you cannot go wrong with the beaches man? Can't yeah yeah great So there's three of them. That are pretty sweet.

Let's get to the Vince Dooley story please. I'm waiting and where can I catch. Bear Lake which beaches Barrett at Atlantic beach man local. I could tell born and raised east struck me as an Atlantic Beach Kinda guy. So Vince Dooley story kind of set. The scene imagine and Jimmy Johnson. Ten years from now coming to some community college and building up their you know their new football team that they just got right because there are growing school I realized that maybe not everyone down in Miami knows who've been Julie is so that's kind of the equivalent of what's going on here. Vince Dooley Came to University Code Kennesaw State University. which is has a huge student body body and very recently just got all these brand new infrastructures for their sports teams? They've got a lot of money put in so they bring Georgia boy. Vince Dooley down to make a big old raw raw speech leading them into the new season and at the end of his speech it reads go. Okay Su and he decided to Improv a little bit and scream go wildcats instead of go out old or art which is the mascot that they had that they are. They were Kansas State University. I guess that is. He had a total brain part and just read K.. 's view and that's a story you know maybe teasing. It wasn't the best idea kind of left. It left it with too to high of a bar. Probably I liked it. I thought it was a good story. No but she so imagine Jimmy Johnson going to a little school and making this huge rocks speech and then screaming go whatever in a different state all right.

You're on the texturing yesterday while we were recording something for mystery crate. And I'm like Mike Clip on getting back to to text messages while I'm doing something in the show is very low. I'm not good at that but I was asked by Eric. One of the planners by Maas Miami which which Karaoke Karaoke Song I wanNA sing and must Miami to which I sort of glance at. I'm like no one's actually formally asked me to do Karaoke. Neither and now. All of a sudden being asked asked which song I want and how many I wanNA do. I have zero information which is not how Karaoke works by the way like. Just go and pick a song. That's there and then. I got an email from Dan. Like hey get back Eric yeah a five. Am like apparently. This wasn't quick enough. So I apologize. I just had no information so I did I. I did respond the to Dan's point. We should have absolutely gotten back like say. Hey Gimme a second nobody did. We were all in the middle of recording and it all happened to us where it slipped our mind and getting back to so I responded at six twenty eight can give me some background on what you need with Karaoke. What time you have it slotted? How long you plan on going How do you envision it going where presently is a slotted in run show Because I haven't had a single conversation about Karaoke so for me just come out and say ushers nice and slow is I don't really know a little bit more mation considering I already have A. DJ SET THEIR DJ. And I need to know where this goes if I actually have the wherewithal to actually do this. Let's they're hiring a karaoke company and they generally have a big handful of songs so I don't understand why our song I understand. We WanNa have like that whole chill attitude attitude towards it. I do understand where they're coming from that. Some things need to be set in stone. What I am a little confused by is how this falls on me when no one's talked to me about anything in regards to the Carioca so let's Hash this thing out is a mean like the MC this Karaoke because this is all a means idea? These are part of the details that I needed to know. I only does anybody. Nobody knows anything I know. I know it's his bit so yes I assume he'll be there Aaron. I assume he'll be. I suggested Karaoke and I said it would be good for the Karaoke King. All right so I don't know what that means. A mean is coming or not. I don't know what's going on on Billy's a team leader right now. Because it was his idea and he has the most information. That's all the information I have. That's the most Eric needed our answers yesterday. Yeah why did he need are answers yesterday. Why is there Dan? I see Gronk and James Corden danced with the Laker girls. Last night and Lakers. We could get this done with the heat heat right. I WanNa dance with the girls. The golden oldies. You Go. Hey I mean. I don't think you could hang with the golden oldies. I've seen I couldn't. I could not hang with the golden oldies if I had to this. I don't know I couldn't do it. You want to try. Let's do it to hang with the golden oldies like on a Saturday night or no no like on the dance floor. I could not keep up with the oldies. I think I want to do both. I WanNa dance them and then hang out them afterwards. What's a website for Maas Miami? It's changed so many times as a laboratory brothers I love it. Torn it's Moss Lebatardshow Moscow laboratory dot com. I tried that have a Typo all right. So it's Masataka and Moss Miami if you WANNA see US sing. That's that's really excited. Well the thing is I didn't want to like have a DJ set. That followed that when Eric reach out to me about my DJ set. I'm like I want to be the first thing because made as on this cordless for one or on card and this Karaoke thing I think would be very fun so I was like. I'll open the night I don't want any the of I don't WanNa be following any of this but I am. I also following it by being part of the Karaoke. How many songs do I have to perform? I would think to to watch arbitrary. Sali's make it up by team captain. Everybody has to do seventeen songs. Serpentine is I think very Muslim calls coming. That's what they mentioned on the air last week that he's got to participate in the domino tournament. Comment you send a song to eric yet. Is he wasn't Karaoke but I know he wasn't. CC'd wasn't upset at him for not getting back there in a timely manner manner. I'd like to see Dan try so this is in the win. Would I knew we were looking at a different venue. The VINNIE for this is the winwood factory I know Roy has the most information in on this venue. Yeah I did a walk through by the way I'm handling arts information I really Roy Royston having I'm only handling one aspect which is the art. Where's the Karaoke happening? No you did a walk to yes yes you want. Yawkey was mentioned a meter so I've got to be on the main stage. I can only assume that would be. Yes the stage is at the side of the building. They're shameful. Is there more than one stage. Yeah there's a back room Outdoors not outdoors inside. But there's a deck outside. What ignore him okay? Perfect I just noticed that like the the bio how they promote the DJ is just copy pasted from my first EJ. Because it ends with this will be his DJ. This is not your job promoting this event gi come to the event. It'll be blinding. It's almost sold out to you. Better get your tickets quick. Yeah and there's like the poppy domino tournament do we know. What the prizes are this year? No no I do not meet and greet with billion Roy. I doubt that's that's it. I WanNa play in the domino tournament before I would kind of go to alison for this stuff. And she's not here so like I don't even know if I'M GONNA list to get in. I don't know who's handling handling list. No nobody came up to me about that. It's GonNa be fun. It's GONNA be awesome. Mayday different may well. It's the same. Mayday Act yeah.

I'll buy some art if you tell me when while billy's how many songs I have to perform rolling through this website you seem to be top billing ahead of the ban you just said and made it okay but They should definitely be in terms of perception and reality. Honey Bee appear for thirty to forty five minutes. I had no idea thirty to forty five minutes of Karaoke. Each a A lot four. I'm Oh I'M GONNA do one song do one song I'm tat man like. Dj thing takes.

They switch around tavern which is a tighter fit but should should be careful not everything everything should be made into a compound word. Tickets are just twenty five bucks are are you kidding me.
