"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Folks, it's Monday. I knew eventually it would be Monday again. It happens almost every week now. I don't know how they do it. Yeah. But it's extraordinary. Chris Himes. Yes, sir. Hello. On this Monday, let me just warn people. This week, first of all, Albin Sedar is going to be on the show and he's got some news. It's kind of fun. It's not kind of fun. It's totally fun. So Albin, you've been wondering, hey, where's Albin? What's he been doing? You'll find out. Oh, you'll find out. In fact, you could say it will be very obvious. Oh, it's going to be obvious. Very obvious. Extremely obvious. And I want to say, he's written a book and the title is Obvious. Literally Obvious. Okay. So we have today John Zmierak on the program. Also coming up, I think, yes, the producer of a film called After Death. This is the kind of thing that obsesses me. Somebody has finally done it. They've made a film about what happens after you die. Now I've always been interested in this. We've had many guests on the program. In fact, many guests on the program are in the film. In fact, you could make a case that they stole the idea from you. Yes. They stole the idea and they should tithe unto me after the order of Melchizedek, that's biblical. I should be getting some money. But if you want to buy a ticket to the film after, this is the perfect thing to bring someone to that they're not sure what they think about, you know, anything, God or heaven or whatever. This film is made for them. It's called After Death. And you can actually preorder tickets. Use this link, actually, please. Angel .com slash Eric. Angel .com slash Eric. Okay. So we've got Alvin coming on this week. We have the tallest guest ever in the history of this program. He's a giant. By, I think, four or five inches. I'm not even sure. A seven foot tall man. Yeah. I'm not even sure who would be number two. Like, he's tall. disorienting We can't think of who would be a close second. When I met him, it kind of freaked me out. I thought, I'm not this short. I know for a fact, I'm not this short. And so when I found out he was seven feet tall, I was like, okay, I'll let it ride. If you're really seven feet tall. Either that or I've just lost four vertebrae. Well, that's what happened when he came into the studio. I saw you visibly shrink three inches. It's like, uh, yeah. So tallest guest ever. And by the way, on radio, you're not going to be able to tell you have to go online. So you're going to have to go online. You're going to have to, you got to go to put it on rumble. Listen, everybody needs to go to ericmataxas .com, sign up for the newsletter. We send you the videos. Trust me. You don't want to miss some of these. I'm not making it up. Some of this stuff is insane. Um, okay. I was just in Augusta, Georgia, Houston, Texas, Johnson city, Tennessee. This week I'm going to be in Omaha, Nebraska. Colorado Springs next week, Chicago. And then they're going to lay me in a shallow grave by the roadside because I'm tired. Um, all right, we got to get serious here for a second. We are doing a, so today we've got John's Mirack and we have Jason Pamer, the producer of after death. And again, go to angel .com slash Eric. But, um, we, uh, everybody knows what is happening in Israel. And so in case you're not following, we are, we are partnering with the international fellowship of Christians and Jews, uh, to raise money, uh, to save lives, to provide critical, um, essentials, medical stuff. Um, so we need you to go to metaxas talk .com. Uh, I hope you will do that folks. People say, Hey, what can I do? All these things happening. Well, this is something you can do. Um, uh, you, you can give a small amount, uh, you can give a big amount. Uh, anybody who gives $15 ,000, uh, will find a way, uh, for me to spend an evening with you, have dinner. Uh, I just say that cause I know there are folks out there that can do that. It's tax deductible and I can't think of a better cause. So the banner is at, is that metaxas talk .com and the banner says Israel at war. You click on that banner. If you want to call, um, you can, uh, phone 800 -235 -7775, 800 -235 -7775. Um, I, I just want to, you know, remind everybody, um, 1 ,400 and 1 ,400 people were killed. Now people say killed. I bristle when they say, Oh, they were killed. No, they were murdered. There's a difference. Uh, if you're in some kind of a war zone and people get killed, that's different from murder. Murder is satanic. It is intentional murder of innocence. That is what Hamas just did. It is evil. Um, you can imagine the trauma that is in Israel right now. 5 ,000 people were injured. Uh, and in some ways, most horrible of all 200 hostages have been taken, including women, uh, children and the elderly. You think about that. You think of the kind of human beings that are involved in Hamas. These are not nice people. Um, and it is really just astonishing. We're seeing evil in our time. Uh, what can you do? There are many things you can do. I hope you're praying. Um, but I want to encourage you to partner with us, uh, by going to the banner at Metaxas talk dot com Metaxas talk dot com. Uh, it says, um, evacuees have been forced to leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Um, first responders and volunteers are risking their lives. Uh, they need medical equipment to treat the wounded basic supplies like food and water. Um, so they turned to us, which is to say to you who are listening to this program to go to Metaxas talk dot com. If you prefer to call, um, we have a phone number. It is -7775, 800 -235 800 -235 -775, 800 -235 -775, sorry, 800 -235 -7775. It's, it's urgent. And it seems like most people that are giving have been doing so through the website. Uh, it seems to be the easiest for most people to do, which, you know, go to Metaxas talk dot com. There's a little banner at top and it'll, it'll take you to the page where you can do it. Metaxas talk dot com. Um, we're going to be talking to people throughout this week, uh, about what is happening, uh, in Israel. Uh, we have coming up, I don't know if it's tomorrow or the next day, Ron Coleman. Um, he'll be with me here, uh, in the studio. Um, he's much shorter by the way, he's much shorter than ever. John Disneyland, um, the author of Nehemiah strong. Uh, that's, um, that is itself very exciting, uh, that we're going to get to talk to John Disneyland about his book Nehemiah strong, really, really fascinating stuff, uh, coming up this week. Um, as I mentioned today, we have, um, our friend, uh, John's Mirack, uh, and we're talking to Jason Pamer, the producer of a film after death, and it's kind of a great alternative to Halloween activities, you know, if, you know, John, um, John talked a little bit, John's Mirack talks about it like, oh, I think we should celebrate Halloween. I think he's wrong, but John's Merrick is rarely wrong, but in this case he might be, but, uh, we would like to encourage you, uh, to, uh, check out the film to check out the film after death.

A highlight from Naomi Wolf
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Folks, welcome to the program. I believe it's Wednesday, October 18th. I could be wrong. Who's to say in these topsy -turvy times? But let me say that we've got a real treat for you today. Coming up in a few minutes, Naomi Wolf will be on the program. I say it over and over. She was in my class at Yale, and it gives me great joy to see what a hero she has been. So we're going to talk to her in a few minutes. In hour two, we get to talk to someone else who was at Yale when I was there. Can anything good come out of Yale? Not much, but every once in a blue moon, you get a Naomi Wolf or a John Zmierak. So we've got John Zmierak in hour two talking about Israel, which makes me mention right now that we were doing a fundraiser with the Alliance Defending Freedom. Many of you know that. And they asked us, no, because of what's happening in Israel right now, raise money for Israel. And we're doing that. So we want to exhort you to go metaxas talk dot com. And we do exhort you to go to metaxas talk dot com right now and to give as generously as you can. They desperately need your help. They are doing all kinds of things with the money that you give. The banner at Metaxas talk dot com says Israel at war. It's desperate. It's desperate. They need your help now. You can imagine what it would be like to be living in Israel now. They're elderly living there that we're providing meals for them, emergency medical supplies. They're in a war zone now. And so they just need our help. So I'm going to give you the phone number as well. But the banner is at the top of Metaxas talk dot com. Israel at war. It says Israel at war. But the phone number is 800 -235 -7775. 800 -235 -7775. Chris, I think I mentioned this the other day, but I've often said that one of the things that I can offer is my time. I have very, very little time. But if somebody wants to spend an evening with me, have dinner, you know, you you pay for the dinner, you pick the restaurant and it can be just me and Chris in New York or it could be just me with you could bring 10 of your friends, whatever you that's all on you, because it's my time that I'm offering. But I get around the country and if we can work it out, anybody who gives fifteen thousand dollars to any of these causes right now, of course, we're raising money for Israel. But if you want to give fifteen thousand dollars tax deductible donation, anything at that amount or more, I'd be delighted to find an evening. My evenings have gotten dramatically scarce, but I'm still trying to do this. And it's week I was in San Antonio and had dinner with a couple that had given to CSI some months back. So it's always a joy to meet those of you who care about what I care about. I should also mention that. Well, the banner, of course, is at the top of Eric. Sorry, Metaxas talk dot com Metaxas talk dot com. And the phone number is eight hundred two three five seven seven seven five eight hundred two three five seven seven seven five. Chris, I got to talk to you about what I'm doing like right now. OK, today I'm flying to Houston. It's hard to keep up. I say that, you know, you could have a second life as a road musician or some kind of serial killer because you have the perfect alibi. You're in town to town to town. Right. It's just it's I've never looked. I think I've said this before. I'm often busy and people say, Eric, you're too busy. And I normally say it's OK. It's OK. You know, I'm not working in a coal mine. I'm not working. I'm grateful for what I get to do. But lately I have been too busy lately. I have been tired lately. I've been doing way, way too much. And this is a season where I am doing too much. God is carrying me through, but it's been tough, I got to say. So today I'm in Augusta, Georgia. Today I fly to Houston. I'm speaking at a prayer breakfast tomorrow. And I don't love speaking at prayer breakfast because they're typically in the morning. Yeah, I'm not a morning guy. You're not really guy, which isn't bad. Well, I mean, I wake up eventually. I have been doing that most of my life, but early in the morning, you know, but I'm going to be in Conroe, Texas, tomorrow morning at a prayer breakfast. It's called Judge Max Prayer Breakfast. I get to meet Judge Mack. I don't know who Judge Mack is. Sounds like a figure out of a Cormac McCarthy novel. So I'm kind of scared. I don't want to meet Judge. He's hosting the breakfast. Is he cooking, too? It's it's his prayer breakfast. There's going to be 1100 people there and they're going to have to listen to a highly caffeinated Eric Metaxas tomorrow morning in Conroe, Texas. If he bakes desserts or or donuts, it should be for his breakfast. The tagline should be Judge Jury Confectioner. You know what? I like that, Chris. We can we can use a creative mind like yours on this program. Not yours, but one like yours. You say this to. OK, so today I'm in Augusta, Georgia, tomorrow morning going to be in Houston. After that, I go to I mean, it's incredible. Johnson City, Tennessee, never been there before, but I'm excited. I'm going to be speaking at a Lutheran church, Bethlehem Lutheran.

"Meanwhile the article notes biden's comments are a major shift in the wrong direction no other commander -in -chief it be it welcome w briefly the idea of putting restrictions on support for israel like from twenty nineteen when then candidate biden called the idea of putting conditions on aid to israel absolutely ranges and the anti israel israel wing of the democrat party is excited as per usual it's a significant welcome shift said matt dots executive vice president at the center for international policy and a former wait for it bernie eiser three u .s. officials say that biden will not restrict support for israel anytime soon bots the democrats are pressuring the white house in such that they may now have to biden said it was a worthwhile thought to condition any aid to israel on how they fight the battle the way he determines the battle to be fought he suggested that conditioning future military aid to israel was a worthwhile thought but then days later administration officials are shutting down any talk about happening if joe biden actually does this i mean i could see him doing it this is the problem that biden has though See, he's stuck A in very very precarious political position right now because he he knows the democrat party hates him He knows the democrat party wants him gone he also knows the democrat party doesn't like israel hates israel so he doesn't know exactly to what do right now i mean normally it be a no -brainer you stand with israel support israel you give them unconditional that's and that that's that but what what happens then the phone starts to ring and he sanders on the other end demanding that the aid be conditional and all the democrat strategists and all the people around there they turn around and say you know there's a lot of love for the uh... palestinian people here among the democrat party and so you really should put conditions on this and you're ready losing support among the democrat party as they equate billions to hamas and you really want the democrat party to turn on you mr president any more than they already have the white house's current stance could president put the on a collision course with members of his own party senate democrats on tuesday meant to discuss pressuring the white house on conditionality which some of bydents don't just allies noting he could use current regulations to restrict aid quote from chris kunz of delaware there are conditions that are already attached to our aid to a wide range of countries the conditions that already he apply under law are sufficient for this circumstance the from biden's own party have only grown in recent weeks this month congressional democrats first quietly then publicly came out in support of imposing conditions and senator bernie sanders was first out of the gate proposing that israel not get anymore weapons until it stops quote the permanent bombing of gaza and commits to serious peace talks among other stipulations is bernie doing any of that when it comes to ukraine a curiosity measures along with whatever checks have to be written whatever they need no problem all these democrats are not something isn't that something there's no conditions there's nothing about peace talks oh hey ukraine you want another round of money then let's let's sit down the table you you and putin and and we'll we'll we'll we'll broker this before we start writing more checks we'll see if we can do something nope none of that nope nope it's outrageous the way the democrat party is and my bet is that joe biden the political pickle that

A highlight from Joel Berry
"Folks, welcome to the Eric Mataxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacy PM investments dot com. That's legacy PM investments dot com. Hey, you have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to the Eric Mataxas show? Well, welcome. Tune in and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC here now is Mr. Completed my bucket list at age 12. Eric Mataxas. Hey, folks, welcome to our two. We're going to we're going to do something lighter because talking to Larry Taunton was about Hamas kind of heavy. And so in an hour or two today, I'm going to interview Joel Berry of the Babylon Bee. The Babylon Bee is a trusted source of fake news. And he and Kyle Mann have written a book called The Babylon Bee's Guide to Gender. I'm going to interview him about that. And I think prepare to be shocked and entertained and then shocked again. And then entertained and then shocked. And I think perhaps entertained after that, but I can't remember because we just did the interview and we're going to run it in a few minutes. Chris Himes. Yes, sir. It's a crazy week. I'm myself in Augusta, Georgia. I don't know how I got here, but here I am. You're you're an honorary southerner at this point for the time that you've spent, you know, Texas, now Georgia. I think I think so. I feel like I feel like the Greek version of Foghorn Leghorn. Um, basically, I'll say that's crazy. Yeah, that's I say I say, well, I am. I'm in Augusta, Georgia, tonight, I'm speaking at a pregnancy center banquet here in Augusta, Georgia. If you're in Augusta, Georgia, they probably still have tickets. I'm going to be speaking tonight here. I guess, you know, after this, I fly to Houston, I'm speaking at a prayer breakfast in Conroe, Texas, on Thursday morning. After that, I go to Johnson City, Tennessee. And I don't know why. Actually, I do know why. I've got a big event at Bethlehem Lutheran Church Friday night. That's this October 20th. So a lot of stuff and then tons of stuff next week. It's been a busy time. But the. The crazy thing when you travel is you have these hotel experiences and you have I mean, the travel experience, whether it's the traveling on the plane, the hotel or the event itself, if you do enough of it, you know, you begin to find yourself judging one, like because there are all these different experiences narrative. It's comparative. Yeah. And I'm at a Marriott in Augusta, Georgia. And I had an experience last night which was unpleasant. And I'd like to share it with the group. Can I share it? Sure. Let's hear it. OK. How unpleasant was it? You want to hear it? You're man enough to hear this story. I don't know where it's going to go, but I'm always up. Well, basically. I get to my hotel room and I'm exhausted. I'm really exhausted. And they. They make it sound like a really nice hotel room, they say, oh, it's it's a king suite. And I go, oh, King suite. Yeah. That sounds big. That's pretty sweet. And but anyway, let me just say not so much. Right. But I mean, it's it's it's it's technically a king suite, but it's not what you think of when you think of King suite. But but here's the point. I thought, you know what? To get here, it's like I had to walk like a thousand miles. You ever walk like a thousand miles in a hotel carrying your luggage or dragging your luggage on a carpet, right? Like your whole upper body, you get a big upper body workout. But like it's a vast like, I don't know. So, you know, I finally get him exhausted, whatever. And I thought the restaurant is like 5000 miles away. But that's where I came in like a thousand miles ago. So I guess I have to go back there or whatever. So I thought, you know what? I will. I will. I will call. I'll order some food and I'll go back without my luggage. So it won't be as bad of a walk. Yeah, I like to work out. I'll get some food, get some food. Right. So I how do you get the food? Is there is there menu in the room? No, of course not. No. You got to go online. Can you get online? Good luck if you get online. How do you find it? You know, it just endlessly complicated. Finally. You know, you just feel exhausted just getting to the menu. Right. And then I thought, OK, I'm going to call the restaurant. And, you know, so I call the restaurant. I get an automated fake person. A person who's not a person. And you sure it wasn't just a robotic wooden human? And it was I wish that it were because I could talk to that kind of a person. But they so you're talking to, you know, it's kind of like an A .I. thing. Right. And like they'll say, like it's kind of like the the the did see twenty five year old woman that they're pretending to be aware where she says, I'm sorry, I didn't quite get that. Like, but you're talking it's a robot. Right. So I said, I'd like to. Sounds like you wanted to order some food or. So I'm talking to some already ticked. I'm already ticked having to talk to a machine. And the so the machine, as so are you interested in the, you know, Augustino restaurant or the Augustino grill? And I said either either one. That does not compute. I'm sorry, I'm interested in the Augustino today or in the right. And you're like either one. It doesn't matter. And I'm speaking clearly in a standard American accent. But like it was this insane. I just thought and the problem is when you're talking to an automated person who's not a real person, there's no one to murder. You know, in other words, you're angry and you think, well, somebody needs to be killed as a result of this because this is so horrible. Justice needs to be done. But there's no actual person to throttle. And it's that's that's what got me that there was no person. So eventually they sent me to an actual human being. And the worst human being is better. Then an automated human being. And so, of course, you know, I got my little salad, but the insanity of it was it was it's just unbelievable. So, Mary. That's evil. You need to repent of that evil Marriott. Hey, talking to you. I say, Mary. Yeah, it's I just want to say sci fi horror. You know, very bad Mr. and Mrs. Marriott, old man Marriott, whoever runs Marriott.
Fresh "Augusta" from The Dan Bongino Show
"Hey, open W. L. S. A. M. 890 and you can listen to W. L. S. A. M. 890 anywhere.

Folks, welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug, chug, chug, chug. Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -lug himself, Eric Mataxas. Hey folks, welcome to Monday. Chris Himes, I'd like to welcome you as well. Thank you, and welcome back. You looked very Texan today. I I've been I've been to Texas. I've seen the promised land. I may not get to move there, but I was last week in Texas, I'm going back to Texas this week. We got a lot to cover here. First of all, we're going to talk about Israel in this hour with a guest, Oren McIntyre. McIntyre, by the way, not a Jewish name. Don't be fooled. Oren, I think, is kind of Jewish. So Oren McIntyre, he's with the blaze in our two. It's a miracle Monday. I'm talking to James Carney. He was at Yale right before me. Amazing man of God. That's our two in our one Israel. Speaking of which pregnant other stuff, we, as you know, this month we had been doing a fundraiser with ADF, but Alliance Defending Freedom asked us to help out the folks in Israel instead. So we're asking you to go to our website. Metaxas talk dot com Metaxas talk dot com, as in CALM, but it's spelled C .O .M. Metaxas talk dot com Metaxas talk dot com is the radio website and you'll see a banner Israel at war. I want you to know we're doing this with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews to help children and families hit by the demonic Hamas terrorists. What they did was literally worse than what the Nazis did. As you think, the Nazis are the gold standard of evil. What Hamas did, some of what I read, I don't want to talk about it. Worse than some of what I read about the SS so evil, it's unbelievable. So if you want to know where your donation goes when you go to Metaxas talk dot com and click on the banner, hundreds of hot meals distributed to soldiers. That's because if you when you give hundreds of hot meals distributed soldiers along the northern border where troops there face shelling from Hezbollah, that's another evil satanic group. And look, let's we don't have a lot of time. We've got to be clear. They're animated by Satan. This is not like, oh, well, there's two sides to the story. No, you don't kill babies. And rape women and kill women and do what they did. It's satanic. I'm not going to go into the details, but it's satanic. This is a horrible thing, and we're asking you to help out through this website. Again, not raising funds for lines getting freedom right now. They are stinking heroes. But they asked us, no, put your efforts this month, this October toward helping our friends in Israel. So your gifts have also helped deliver over a thousand hot meals thus far to the elderly. Think about this. Who've been hard hit by the terrorist attacks? The also the Fellowship of Christians and Jews is supplying what they call entertainment kits for frightened children who have been forced to stay in bomb shelters for more than a week. And a lot of this is also going to emergency relief, including food, water, medical supplies. If you want to help Israel now, I hope you do. And I hope you will just go to Metaxas talk dot com. I also have a phone number. Eight hundred two, three, five, seven, seven, seven, five, eight hundred two, three, five, seven, seven, seven, five. We're going to be coming back to that. It's important that we step up. This is a big deal. You know, Chris, it's also I say to people, this would be a good time to dust off your Bonhoeffer book or get a fresh copy once you've read it once or twice. You really should get a fresh copy. Always get the hardcover on these books, folks. I promise you, I know I'm a book guy. Always get the hardcover. You can get all these books from my store dot com, my store dot com. That's Mike Lindell's website and use the code Eric. Great prices, great books, my store dot com. Use the code Eric. But if you want to know. About Jew hatred, read about the Nazis, read about Bonhoeffer as a Christian standing up for the Jews, that's the model and the German church didn't get it. And Germany suffered and the Jews suffered and died. This is the eternal battle between good and evil. The story of Bonhoeffer really is like it's the test case. It's this horrible thing that happened as a warning to us. Today, at least that. So it's a scary thing, kind of this animus, this hatred of the Jews. It's almost like this kind of zombie thing that that gets reanimated and crawls out of the pit of hell and, you know, seeks to play the old old song again, you know, it's just like a rerun. It's really the demons, the demons live, you know, eternally there. They're damned as we speak and they exist to do evil. And what better evil thing could you do than kill those whom God has chosen? The Jews are hated for the same reason that serious Christians are hated by certain groups. It's it's it's an attack on God. So and I think the scary thing and I know we're going to get to it the next with the next guest. And I have a friend who's who's a Jewish friend, who's whose daughter's about to head off to college. He he's not he's not a believer, but he was genuinely posting. What college can I send my kid to in schools right now? That is the you know, the the you know, the least hateful of Jews. And, you know, kind of asking quite honestly after seeing all the all those, you know, it's the it's it's so sick. We've got to fight back, do what we can educate ourselves. The number is eight hundred two, three, five, seven, seven, seven, five, eight hundred two, three, five, seven, seven, seven, five. This is I'm doing I'm partnering with International Fellowship of Christians and Jews this week and next week because we've got to step up, do what we can. It's important. The website is, again, our radio website, Metaxas talk dot com. Before we go to Oren McIntyre, Chris, I should say that today I'm flying to Augusta, Georgia, speaking there tomorrow night. After that, I fly to Houston, Texas. I'm doing a prayer breakfast in Conroe, Texas. That's Thursday morning. I hate waking up early, but I got to do it. Prayer breakfast just outside of Houston. Then I fly to Johnson City, Tennessee, speaking there at a church on what is it, Friday night and Saturday early morning before I finally fly back this way. And I think next weekend, I'm finally going to get to see my parents who probably forgot what I look like. They probably remember. It's probably fine. I don't know what maybe I forgot what they look like. But I've been traveling a lot. Next week, I go to Omaha, Nebraska and Colorado Springs. It's a crazy season of traveling for me. I've literally never traveled, not just this much, but anything even close to this much coming at the same time that I'm trying to finish the sequel to The Letter to the American Church. So it's been a very tough season. Lots of other things going on we can't talk about. Last week I was in Fort Worth, Dallas and Fort Worth. We did a Socrates in the city in Fort Worth with Stephen Collins. If you've read my book, Is Atheism Dead? And I don't care if you read the book, but it wouldn't kill you to buy a copy. You need to go to my store dot com. Use the code Eric. But. One of the reasons I wrote that book is because I met Stephen Collins in Albuquerque, the archaeologists who discovered biblical Sodom. It's a story for the ages, one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. I write about it in Is Atheism Dead? I interviewed him. It was delightful. In Fort Worth, we live streamed it. A lot of you actually watched it live. And you saw my dentures fall out if you if you watched it live. And, you know, it's so embarrassing. But eventually we laugh it off. But the point is that we're going to be able to get it back. And then we had, yes, I use denture grip, not poly grip. And we'll be right back.

"Former President Jimmy Carter, who was in hospice care at home, refused to miss saying goodbye to his wife of 77 years, daughter Amy Carter. My mom spent most of life her in love with my dad. Their partnership and love story was a defining feature of her life. Rosalynn Carter died November 19th at age 96. A commercial airliner made history when it landed at JFK Airport. For the first time, a passenger jet has crossed the Atlantic Ocean from the UK totally without fossil fuel on board. In the fuel tank of the Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787 was sustainable aviation fuel, or SAF, high in fat and low on emissions, made from things like agricultural waste and used cooking oil. The UK government spent over a million dollars to plan and operate the flight to prove it could be done. There were no paying passengers on board. Holly Boyd -Bowland is Virgin Atlantic's Vice President of Corporate Development. The first time a commercial airline has flown on 100 % while symbolic sustainable fuels are expensive and in limited supply. New York's Westchester County had its rating outlook boosted to positive by S &P global ratings. The firm maintained the affluent suburb in the backyard of New York City. Double A plus credit rating, second highest level. Westchester has long been an attractive destination for New Yorkers seeking space and good schools.

The Knicks did not win their group in the in -season tournament, but because of point differential, they do advance to the knockout round. Their quarterfinal game will be next Tuesday in Milwaukee. If the Knicks win, they'll a play semifinal game a week from tomorrow in Las Vegas. In Brooklyn, Netsby, Toronto, 115 -103. Mark Cuban bought the Dallas Mavericks in 2000 for $285 million.

Tigers surprised many by saying despite the ankle injuries hoping being in 2024 to play one tournament a month. John Stash. Yeah. We're Bloomberg Sports. Nathan.
A highlight from Pastor Greg Locke
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to Friday, which means I'm in California. I've never traveled this much. Chris, I don't know who I am anymore. I don't know where I am. It's unbelievable. I find it best to get a Sharpie with someone as busy as you are to kind of write it down on your arm so when you wake up in the morning, you know. You can just look over. Oh, Iowa. Thank you. Before I forget, in this hour, we're talking to our friend Pastor Greg Locke from the Nashville area in Tennessee. He has a book out. Very exciting. Yesterday, I was on the phone with my friend Ken Fish. And, you know, these are the two people, Ken Fish and Greg Locke, that are talking about deliverance and are involved in the ministry of casting out demons. Now, if you don't believe in that, you might as well say you don't believe in the periodic table or science. This is reality. If you've ever been around it, I defy you to tell me what you think is going on. But anyway, we're talking to Greg Locke and that'll be our one today. I'm not sure who we have an hour or two yet. It'll be somebody great. But it will be somebody great. That's the only thing I can say. And my hair looks like it was styled by Vivek Ramaswamy's people today. I don't know what's going on with my hair, so please try not to look at it. Yeah, Eric, it's very important. You don't want to go full Bollywood with your hair. It just will look too fantastic and terrific. That's what Vivek is doing. He's going full Bollywood. It's kind of like Elvis on steroids. Elvis, Prince, Jerry Lee Lewis is kind of a pompadour kind of thing happening. OK, but listen, we don't want to talk about that. We want to talk about the fact that I'm traveling so much. Why? I don't know why, but I will tell you next week I'll be in Grand Rapids doing an event at Cornerstone University. After that, I go back to Dallas, where I'm doing something Christ for the Nations. 7th. That's October Then I go to San Antonio. I'm speaking in San Antonio October 11th. Sorry, October 10th. Then I go back to Dallas. We're doing a number of Socrates in the City events, which are totally sold out. I'm sorry about that. But if you go to Socrates in the City dot com, you can watch it live. It's going to be October 12th live and you can watch it. I hope you will. I want people to understand that, you know, it can be fun to watch it live because it's not edited. So all the flubs and fluffs and a lot of cursing. I'm just being honest with you. A lot of cursing. We have some guests. It gets very wrong. It's very salty. But we edit that out eventually. But if you want to see it, if you want to hear it, if you've never heard. I was just going to say I now can just you tell it what you want to leave in. And, you know, if you want to keep in the word, you know, honky tonk, it will leave that in. But it'll it'll delete other words you don't want in there. So that's Socrates in the city dot com. You can sign up for that's that's the event we're doing on October 12th on October 13th. I'm going to stay there in Dallas, Fort Worth, and we're doing some Socrates in the studio sessions, one of which will be with the great John's Mirack. He has a book coming out called No First Amendment. No First Amendment. Sorry. No Second Amendment. No first. It is a book worthy of John's Mirack writing. So I'm glad he wrote it. So we're going to be doing a Socrates in the studio session with him on October 13th. It just gets crazy. After that, I go to Augusta, Georgia. I'm I'm reading this Augusta, Georgia, Houston. I'll be in Houston on October 19th. Johnson City, Tennessee. That's right. I'm going to Johnson City, Tennessee. From there, I'm doing a number of appearances where we're promoting the letter to the American Church documentary film. So I'm going to Albuquerque, going to San Diego. I'm going to the L .A. area again to promote that. Then I'm going to be in Omaha, Nebraska. Am I making this up? I'm going to be in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm going to be in Colorado Springs. I'm going to be in Rocky Mountain Cavalry Church in Colorado Springs. I'm going to be in Chino Hills with Jack Hibbs. It's crazy. And I actually ask you to pray for me because this is a very solid, crazy schedule that I will need. I need prayer support. And I believe in that. I know there are people who pray because it gets tough.
Barnes & Noble Makes It Hard to Buy 'Democrat Party Hates America'
"Or even like the title of the book. But you got books in there that use the f -word on the title and worse than when that you open the book. So don't play this game now. Don't do it. Or honestly I expect the people in the audience will go elsewhere to purchase. It's not a thread. It's not a boycott. It's none of those things. I'm just voicing, why are you doing this? Costco's not doing it. Walmart's not doing it. Sam's Clubs isn't doing it. PJ's isn't doing it. Books a Million's not doing it. So it seems to me that if you're a retail store and you're selling something that anyone can buy online that you should be open to all points of view and you may think you are but don't if you have the number one book in the country, fiction or non -fiction, where people can easily find it or see it as they're coming into your store, that's just not right. That's not all their stores but I'm getting enough information about some of their stores. Again, we're not having this problem elsewhere. Have you been wanting to buy gold as an investment? Well, as I've said, there's lots of commercials out there, lots of companies, lots of actors who are promoting lots of static. So the question is who can you really trust? Well, you'll make that decision I can tell you who I trust. Augusta Precious Metals and a few weeks ago I bought some gold coins, Canadian coins from Augusta because that's what I like to collect because as I've told you before there's a commercial used to just in case all hell breaks loose. So you can have it as an investment, but you can also have it available as
A highlight from Jack Posobiec
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Ladies and gentlemen, we ask you now to count down from ten, silently if you don't mind. And when you get to one, you'll hear one of the greatest voices on this or any other planet. Three, two, one, Eric Metaxas! Hey there folks, welcome to the program. My name's Eric Metaxas. I'll be the host of The Eric Metaxas Show today. And it's really basically miraculous that they were able to find a guy named Eric Metaxas, which is my real name, to host The Eric Metaxas Show. I mean, what are the odds of that? It's just hard to figure mathematically. I have with me, my producer, Chris Himes, although when I say with me, Chris Himes, you're with me, but you're not with me. You're in a car, like in the Smoky Mountains of, is it Virginia, someplace? Yeah, I'm in the Smoky Mountains. I'm outside of a budget inn and something called the Pink Cadillac Diner. So you got this thing called a family and you travel around with them and you kind of got stuck down there. So you're not with me in the studio today, but you're just as real in some ways as you are when you're here. I just want you to know that you seem real. You seem very real to me. Well, every day for me is like Noah's Ark. You know, I'm in a vehicle with a lot of children and animals and there's a lot of yelling. There's a lot of yelling. Right. Send out a dove and maybe it's time to land. Well, let me, okay, three things that I want to mention. Four, perhaps. Number one, today in hour one, if we get them, we have our friend Jack Posabeek. That's his real name, Jack Posabeek. I've been on his show. He's been on my show. He's an amazing political voice. Very, very bright man of faith. Very excited to talk to him about the election, what's coming up and he's just fun to talk to. Period. In hour two today, we have our friend Mike Wilkerson, who's similar but different, talking to him about a wide variety of things, including, I'm going to see if I can get him to talk about the demonic origins of the Barbie doll. You think I'm kidding? Not kidding. Really sick. Mentioned it last night. I was with him and I think we're going to get to that. If we don't get that today, we'll get to it in our second interview because we've got some time. But a lot of stuff coming up. I also want to mention tomorrow, we will have Pastor Mike Thompson. Some of you know him. He's been on this program many times. He wrote a book called Third Heaven Authority. I had the privilege of writing the foreword to his book, Third Heaven Authority. He and Dutch Sheets are the two men that I will credit as being profound encouragements to me. About the United States of America and the world. These are sober minded men of God who I really cannot praise enough just because they've earned their stripes over the decades and they have a lot of credibility where I'm concerned. So tomorrow, we're talking to Pastor Mike Thompson. He does a weekly live stream from his church in Nevada. Last week, not two days ago, but the week before that, he gave a warning about things that are coming. When he says something like that, I take it seriously. Dutch Sheets also utterly separately delivered a similar warning. And I thought, we need to talk about this. So tomorrow, we've got Mike Thompson on the program. I want to do a couple of things before we go to our first guest, Jack Posobiec. And don't even try to spell it. There's no real spelling. But I want to mention two things. First of all, people write to us. And I am really blessed by some of these emails that we get. Sometimes you send it to ericmataxis .com. Some people go to mataxistalk .com. I want to read one of those in just a moment. But before I read this very, very sweet email from a grounds maintenance worker, okay, his name is Buzz. I'm not going to give you his last name. But it really touched my heart. I said, I have to read it. But before I do that, I want to remind you that we are doing a fundraiser with Food for the Poor. Now, everywhere we turn, there's disaster, right? I think most of us know that President Biden or the people who are manipulating his puppet strings are trying and succeeding in destroying the United States of America. Now, they can only do that if we help them, if we let them. And I talk wherever I go about how we all have a job to do. It's not up to us to sit back and be watch things destroyed. We all have a job to do. One of the things that we need to do is to step up and help those who can't help themselves. And this is separate but related. We do a campaign with Food for the Poor every year. They help people who are struggling in countries that have no government assistance to help them if there's some kind of disaster. And no, I'm not talking about Hawaii. I'm talking about other parts of the world. We really need your help. When we do a fundraiser with Food for the Poor, if you don't step up, these people don't get the help. Food for the Poor needs people on this program to be generous. So I want to ask you today to go to metaxastalk .com. Most of you give through metaxastalk .com. Give what you can. I know some of you can give $100. Some of you can give less. Some of you can give more. But we need everybody to participate, which is one of the reasons why I say if you can't go to metaxastalk .com, on your phone, just text the word Eric, my first name, to 91999. If you text Eric to 91999, something will pop up and you can give that way. I want to reiterate, we need your help because people in these countries are suffering. And when the hurricanes hit, because as you know, we're approaching that season right now, they get devastated. And so Food for the Poor wants to be prepared before they are totally devastated. Food for the Poor wants to be ready. We need you to step up. So I'm going to keep reminding you over and over and over again, some of you prefer to call. It's 844 -863 -hope, 844 -863 -hope. But we need those of you who enjoy this program to step up and to help because we need your help. There's no other way to put it. So before we get to my first guest, Jack Posobiec, I got to read this letter that I got. And this was really, you know, sometimes I just can't believe what I'm reading. Somebody named Buzz writes, hello Mr. Metaxas. I'm excited to attend the October 25th banquet at which I'm told you'll be the keynote speaker. You see, I'm just a grounds maintenance worker and I do the maintenance at the West Augusta Care Pregnancy Center. This past year there was a need for some major repairs at the facility and I saw God answer prayers to get the work done in an astonishing way. That was in September of last year. I certainly have a story to tell. It excited me so much that I went to my pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Augusta to talk about it. There's some miraculous stuff. And First Presbyterian Church did become more involved in supporting the work of the pregnancy care center. God bless this man, Buzz Toole. Amazing.
No Plans in the Near Future for Joe Biden to Visit Maui
"Doing everything we can to account for everybody that has been unaccounted for. And the president has given me the space to make sure I'm bringing in all of the appropriate federal personnel and resources to do that. And so we will continue to do that right now. We want to make sure that they have all of the resources and the space that they need and not disrupt operations right now. No visit by the president is on schedule at this moment. We just want to make sure that we are working to help this This is such BS it's hard to stomach. And they're not going to see the president because these people pretend to be the president. More on that when I return. You know what helps me sleep well at night? Physical gold. I'm concerned about what the Biden administration is doing and I've decided to learn more about gold IRAs to help me diversify.

There's Still Good in the World of Sports
"Last week was the masters masters was incredible. Golf cart, but even with The Rain in the middle and the cold and all John rom won the master, John rom, an incredible champion, and he's been one of the steadiest golfers over the last few years that we've had. But something struck me just this week. A lot of times after you went on a major championship, you know, you might not, especially in golf, you may not play the next week, and it's always been the tradition that the RBC heritage, which is Hilton head, is always the week after the masters. And it's only about, you know, it's not very far from Augusta down to Hilton head. And rom had agreed to play in the RBC heritage and a lot of people thought that he may after this past weekend winning the masters and everything drop out of it. John rom said that no, he would play. He is going to play in the masters currently playing now. In this event and he basically said he said, look, I made a commitment to my words. He said, I made a commitment.

I'm just taking what the defense gives me. A lot of it first have, they were running out the line. They were playing me a lot closer, so you know that's when I was getting to the basket. And making plays for myself. So really, that's all it was. Meanwhile, the Lakers pulled into a tie with New Orleans by beating Phoenix one 21 one O 7.

"Longtime Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has defended the coffee giants union stance before a Senate panel, the testimony was often testy with Senate health, education, labor, and pensions committee chair Bernie Sanders, saying federal courts and the national labor relations board have found Starbucks guilty of labor law violations. The most aggressive and illegal union bustling campaign in the modern history of our country. Schultz fought back. Starbucks has not broken the law. Saying, while the companies willing to bargain with unionized workers, they don't need unions because Starbucks gives them good pay and benefits. We do nothing that is nefarious. We put our people first. Ex barista, Jason saxton, told a different story, saying Starbucks fired workers and cut hours after his Augusta Georgia shop voted to unionize last year. He led a two day strike in protest. I was fired after organizing like so many union leaders across the country. Saxton says big companies like Starbucks do whatever they can to deny workers a voice.

I mean, I actually met him last year when he got inducted into the Hall of Fame at the players, which was sick, and then I mean, Sean foley, I was working with him at the time, too, and we got to like, you know, he obviously worked with Sierra for a couple of years and so I got to see him again and Shawn could talk to anybody, so he was super cool about it, but gosh, man, it's just so it's just different person too. Like TV doesn't do it justice that guy can do the golf ball. He's sweating all over it. It's so good. See him in person. Seeing him in real life in golf balls is crazy.

"Yeah, I was doing a bunch of camps still, you know, baseball, like the summer leading up for freshman year ago on a different college, prep stuff, and then, yeah, just I like the aspect of golf where I won or lost depending on what I did, not necessarily umpires or teammates. I kind of had been around that for so long. And played so many games. So I was just like, I want to win it. It was based off how I play and how I do it. Referee tell me all parts only what was going on. When you were on the you spent 5 years on the corn fairy tour, is that right? That's right. Was there ever a point during year 5 or you're like, maybe I shouldn't have done baseball? I don't know. That's a long time to spend on the corn ferry tour and your dreams could die out there. Yeah, I mean, I had two pretty good seasons starting out. So I was like pretty close to getting my card right out of the gate. I finished 37. My rookie season, and then I finished 30 of my second year in a shot or two basically out there. And so y'all have to decent start. And then I had two really big things out of my control in 19 and 20 where I was basically sitting out for four months. I had a collapsed lung in 19. We're at app surgery and missed four months of our season and it came back on a medical and played the rest of that year. And then right when I got pretty healthy, we had COVID and I missed another four months. So I was like, two things completely out of my control that kind of prolonged, you know, I feel like that time that I was on the corn tree, but I mean, looking back, it's just a part of high school and a part of my journey. And it happened and just kind of put my head down and got back to work and ended up getting my card after that two in one season on the cornbury. Tell me about this collapse long and how you found out how you handled it because it's pretty wild story. Yeah, we had a month off in 19 on the corn ferry. I went out to Scottsdale to practice, get some good weather because it's kind of hit or miss here in Texans at March and so yeah, it went out there, it's been a week practice, hung out with some buddies and I thought I had boot boys in our last night there just going through it basically all night and my buddy sauce and

My vision of it is like the second that somebody couldn't possibly post and under that like a carrier pigeon just arrived in front of your face and gave you an invitation to the masters. I assume that's what happened. I wish I could report back to you and tell you a lot, but that has not yet so that's a great question. I do not know the protocol. For that, I have not received all email in by anything. Are you sure after this incident? We got to make sure that gets to the right Taylor Moore. Yeah, I'm sure there are a ton of us out there, but hopefully didn't go the wrong one. They are. They're like, where the fuck is this guy we're trying? We're in Dallas itchy. Is that your spot, Dallas? That's where you, that's your home base? Yeah, yeah, I grew up in a group in Oklahoma City just north there and had me Oklahoma and after I finished up at Arkansas, I moved down here to Dallas, so been here about 5 years now and join it. You play you like run with that Dallas crew of like Jordan and Scottie and you play with them or are you in your own circle? Yeah, I don't play as much with those guys. I see Jordan out at the practice and he plays a lot with like Roma some of those guys, but I play more solid Taurus and Davis Riley, Braden thornberry, another one of our good bodies, put his on court ferry tour. So yeah, we got a pretty good group. I'll hear mardo. I got an idea for a golf tournament. We just need to sponsor for it. But I want to put all of these little hubs of professional golfers against each other. We could do like a Dallas versus Vegas for Scottsdale versus Jupiter or sea island.

"It's pretty much what it feels like everybody's been taught. Everybody that's read through like a golf digest magazine, or you watch like lead better on golf channel, that's the stance. And here you are, 17, you hit one to like a foot, long, tough bunker shot under pressure. You got this closed stance. You gotta walk me through that a little bit. Yeah, I went way more neutral as my stance the last couple of years with Josh, you know, who I mentioned earlier, but I think a lot of it's lie to me. Like if I'm slightly uphill, I want the right foot back, so it helps me swing up the slope a little bit. And then if I'm like out of bunker shot on four yesterday, that was pretty downhill and so the right foot back just gives me some space to get some angle and light cut across it so I can get some hide off the down. So it's not a light dependent, but I think you're right. Like the more average dolphins that go watch PJ tour players head out of walkers, especially live, like you're not going to see super open, super cut across. You're going to see way more neutral stances to weigh more slightly right foot back because that's just kind of the new way of doing it. Yeah, it's like you watch cam Smith, you watch Patrick Reed, who are my two not to bring up guys who aren't on the PGA 20 more. But those are the two guys that I love watching in the bunker and both of those guys have closed stances. Is there something I guess it's like when greens are really fast? Is it really helpful to not have something that's spinning right because you can kind of control it? Yeah, that's part of it. Also due to the conditions of the blocker, like you'll see guys get more Cuddy, the firmer the sand is just 'cause you gotta have that to get high, but like last week there was quite a bit of sand, there are little fluffy, and so you want more rounded, more seal, so I think it just kind of depends on the lie and the condition of the sand, but Josh Gregory also has Patrick Reed forever.

Like Sergio is going to be a few seats down from Freddie and they are just going back and forth in the media for the last month about chirping each other and they're just going to sit there and be like, oh, pass the bread please there. I think Tiger is irate at Phil Mickelson. And he would never say it out loud because Tiger knows that he could have done this so long ago. He could have gotten so much money and cashed in, but Tiger believes, oh, I did what I thought was good for the game of golf. And he's going to view Phil Mickelson as a total scab who got late in his career and realized he couldn't compete and went and got a huge payday and I think Tiger has zero respect for that guy. And I think he won't even look in his direction. I agree with that. I think Tiger. I mean, he made it clear in the genesis. He's like, oh yeah, I expect the dinner to be pretty awkward. He said that. He's like, no, I'm not, I don't think Tiger's going to go in and be cordial.

I think we would have gotten a photo like that, potentially, but I think for everybody is going to be very much, I think Adam Scott actually gave us some really good insight into that where he's like, I'm pretty sure that the chairman is going to set the record straight at the beginning of the night being like, look, we're here, none of the other stuff is here. This night is about us at about Scottie scheffler and that's it. And I think he's going to put a close to any of that, which is a damn shame. But I'm rooting for a shove. I would like to see a shove, some sort of physical altercation, anything, but that's a tough place to have it happen. Somebody gets a couple whiskys in them. Red couple says something.

Freddie, Freddie, will definitely throw some out there, throw some bait out there. And tigers the head of this thing. He's above all, you know, he's just like, I'm the greatest ever, but he's also been the guy, him and Rory being like, we are fighting tooth and nail against this thing. So it's not like he is an unbiased observer.

He's accused of cheating and stealing stuff. Then he gets on the PGA Tour. He gets accused of cheating and stealing stuff. He has his wife tweeting out stuff about how they're bitching about. They get bad seats from the PGA Tour. And then he starts bitching about the PGA Tour doesn't provide them enough money. And then those types of people, in my opinion, they always find something to complain about. They are never just perfectly happy. Is there a chance that the PGA Tour just completely shuts the door on them and just moves on without them? Because the sobering thing for live guys is that the tours just moving on. It just keeps rolling. Stars keep emerging. They're still enough huge names. There's so many big names still that you don't necessarily need these guys who are going to come back and maybe bitch or just want to come back at all. Like, is there a chance that the PJ George just like, no, you guys made a choice and we're moving? I don't think that they would ever do a lifetime ban. I think that would also probably it would be another legal headache. But I don't think it's good for anybody. I don't think it's in the best interest of the PGA Tour. I think it would be an unbelievable gesture if they I mean, there's got to be some sort of penalty, but it would be a victory for them. It would be, you know, these guys have to come back with their tail between their legs and basically say, I'm sorry I made a mistake. And as a fan, I want those guys back. If those guys want to go back to the PGA Tour, I don't see anyone who'd be like, oh, Dustin Johnson, unforgivable what he did. Don't let him play the tour any longer. We want the Dustin's. We want Brooks. We want those guys back if they want to be back. Bryson. I disagree. I do not think there's going to be a pathway back. I think those guys are out.

"Like, oh, the future is going to have robots, and they're going to be like, they're going to look like people, and they're going to do our jobs, and they're going to have flying cars. And we're going to have all these things like whoever started to paint that picture. We've just been slowly moving towards that as if that was the goal. You know what I mean? Have you ever thought about it that way, where it's like, they just said what they thought the future was going to be. And it feels like we've always just moved towards trying to achieve that. They could have essentially said anything. I wonder if in the 1800s or whatever, or the 1200s, whenever these people were like deciding on what they thought, I don't know the numbers. But whenever they decided on what they thought the world was going to happen, if they said like bananas, we're going to take over the planet. What we have then put all of our money and resources into trying to put brains inside bananas and putting arms on them. And they would be, you know what I mean? No matter what they said, would we have tried to accomplish it? I don't think there's probably, you know what I mean? Do you know what I mean slightly? We're just moving towards what they said. Like if one guy was like, I want applesauce to come out of the water out of the fountains. And if that would have just caught on, like, Elon would have been like, we got to get this applesauce out of these fountains like today. No, I think there's probably part of what a conversation, by the way. I think there's probably part of the mean girls podcast. Oh yeah, true. Watch out for these clips. Alex, be very, be very gentle. Do not put these out there. No. But I'm sure there's a part of the human brain out there. We need zombies. These are perfect. True. And there's probably a part of the human brain that everybody shares to a degree that's like normal. Advancing in this way. Right. The reason it works is because we think it's just like that's what you have to do. Right. I mean, a few weeks ago, we talked about this AI bot that told the reporter to leave his wife and family. So it's like, things are moving. You know what's actually coming out tomorrow night? I forgot to tell you guys this before. What? What's that? Fixing Frankie episode three, Trevor immelman putting lessons master's winner Wednesday night. We're talking about the fucking masters coming up. This is Trevor elman. He is a masters winner. He is one of our good friends. You have to be able to put really well at Augusta national to win the masters. So I went down to Florida to Orlando, didn't go to Disney unfortunately, but we went to Orlando and we met with Trevor. I've gotten fixed quote unquote in all different sorts of ways. Episode one was with doctor Brett mccabe. We learned a process slowing myself down, playing within myself, speaking out loud, finding the right pre shot routine. Episode two, we had Scott foss at that lunatic all about target golf and where to aim and why are you giving up certain locations on the golf course that just because people say this is the location. You really should be looking at this one because it makes the most sense. Picking the right clubs. Looking at how to read greens, all of that stuff.

"It's just like that doesn't really put money in our pockets. It's good for the brain. It's good for reputation, but it's right. It's the social videos. And the videos on YouTube. That sucks, because that shouldn't be, I feel like Twitter is where you actually see who people are. Twitter's value and it's not in what TikTok has on Instagram and all those. But it's value is I can tell if someone's funny or not through Twitter. I know. Like that you can't hide on there. TikTok's got all these, you know, all this flashing and all these, you can put it into a different framework where it's like, oh, that's a funny video. Twitter you are very exposed. One way or the other. People see who you are on Twitter. And they could see you as a psychopath. I mean, if you follow me on a West Coast trip from 10 o'clock till 1 o'clock in the morning, I'm going fucking bananas about the islanders. If you follow Trent on a Monday night, he's talking about roses and double dates and luggage. It's just like you don't see that stuff in like a two hour video on you know what I mean? You don't see that in every other form of social media. You can really see who the people are. You can actually see who those people are on Twitter. And I just wish that Twitter meant more. I wish that that actually put asses in the seats as opposed to just being like, oh, if you want to see their personality, that's where it is. Yeah. I think it's still kind of there. I guess Elon's trying to do it, but it's just never going to work. He's turning it into TikTok. That's the way exactly. Which kind of, and it doesn't make it the same as getting weird now. I got a notification in the day that I had to take all the security off of my Twitter unless I signed up for Twitter blue. They're like, you no longer have security on your account. We're taking away like two authentication factor, whatever. If you, unless you pay $7 a month, I'm like, that's illegal. You can't do. This is crazy. What happened to Twitter? What happened to Twitter? Bots, man. The whole thing just bought pretty much. It was what happened in Instagram, bots are out of control. When are they going to just, isn't it so easy to just get rid of them? Shouldn't it just we have facial scanners on our phones? Shouldn't it just be like you have to scan your face in to just be a real person? Right, because when you see a fake person comment, you can tell right away. The name is I got $5000 for my juicy pussy. The name is like O four 7 and then the picture is just a smoke show woman with ten followers. It's like, don't click on my account if you want to get naughty today. It's just like I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to. Also, to get into our phone, we have to have some sort of security system to make sure that we're a real person. Why can't that then just unlock you having an account on Instagram? It should be as simple as that. And I don't care about just that technology is good enough that they can just fake like they can just trick this, right? Like they do that with the bots, that's pretty much what happened with the Taylor Swift tickets, which is like the bots, had dealing with the votes, man. They were so good.

"He would show a little too much of Augusta. All these other guys like Xander and Ricky and everybody who's like, oh, I can see that. But with him and I want him to do it badly, especially now the rig says money on it. But it's just gonna be such a mind fuck to see max homa with the green jacket. It'd be crazy to see him in butler cabin in the awkward stuff with Nance. And the whole thing and the Augusta greet. And then four hours later, he's roasting somebody's swing on Twitter. That's very bizarre to think about. I agree with you. So it's not making me feel better about my bet, but I just think he played so well at the president's cup. He played very well at the players, finished tied for 6, I believe, as a guy that has been winning a bunch in the last three or four years, especially the last couple of years, including a big event for him, but hadn't quite brought it in the biggest events, the majors in particular. I think if you look at the president's cup, which essentially is on that level of like a huge event for him in the moment, how much a mentor he played phenomenal. And then you look at the players championship, which are only real sort of samples in the last 8 months or whatever it's been. I like his chances going in. I think he's going to play well at Augusta. If max does do it, that will be the Internet's first green jacket. And we all will have to rejoice. As a creature of the Internet, I'm looking at three other creatures of the Internet here as well. If he wins it, that's the Internet's first green jacket. It might be our new tagline for foreplay, creatures of the Internet. That's what we are, man. We are that. You know, you come up in different ways, you come up on TV, you come up on the radio, you come up through the newspaper, you come up through, however, find your way to the Internet. I was thinking about the other day. Creatures on Twitter and we were just talking about something stupid or everyone was like, something was going viral. Not in all of barstool was like getting in on it. And I was thinking about all these other YouTube brands, now all these golf brands, there's like the good goods and all these guys. They're so just like on YouTube and that's their world. And they're on Instagram and TikTok, but our brand has been grown on this disgusting landscape of Twitter. The stuff that we've tweeted about and talked about and argued about is just like that's how

"Is going to win a major championship. I think he's going to win the masters. I just think not this year necessarily, but at some point, because I think he's too handsome and clean to not have put on that green jacket. He would look great in that thing. Hopefully he doesn't do it with one of his preposterous orange outfits. Maybe he does it with a subtle one where he mostly wears black. White with some orange trim or something. But I think he is just. He would look too good in that green jacket. Him and that masters champions dinner photo every year would look great. So I just see him up there with a green jacket on. I really do. He finished second before, I think. And he finished the second Patrick Reed one. I think, yeah, he finished top 5 in all four. He's been great in the majors. He's been great in the majors. Plus that what do you think? I know you were asking that for me to answer. I believe you want to see it. I think I'm betting, I think as a betting man, I think you're in the better position. I think it's probably plus money pretty high for him to win a major in his career. Wouldn't it be? Yeah, dude. And his career. It's pretty wild to think in 20 14, I think it was when he finished top 5 in all four majors. Yeah. It was 9 years ago. It doesn't say it's long time ago. But at this point it looks like it would be surprising for him to win one rather than his career continue to be the way it has been since we first came on PGA Tour, right? It would be surprising at this point for Rickie Fowler to win a major. It's not in the cards for him to do it. It would be like an oh shit he did it. Right. I think he's gonna win again on the PJ tour. I think he might win this series playing very well, but obviously that's very different proposition. I would love to see what that would be great for the game of golf. My God. If someone into one of those cryo chamber or whatever they call it, if somebody went into one of those for 5 years and they came out and you said, dude, Rickie Fowler won the masters.

"Yeah, those screens are not easy either. What's the percentage of like a 7 foot putt or a 6 foot putt, let's say? Probably just over 50%. I think 50s like right around 9 feet. So, I mean, that does include a lot of tap ins, but it also probably includes a lot of 5 to 7 footers. Right. Yeah, at least at least probably out of those 64, what? 15 of those are from like four to 6 or 7 feet. And to be a 100% for that is insane. It's unbelievable. Unbelievable. And you have to worry about the next one because it's not like us playing bucket two on two and you got like a four footer to win the hole and if you miss it, it doesn't really matter your partner's in. He has to think on every putt, like if this misses, I'm a little bit nervous about the next one and he just goes 64%. Think about how crazy golf is if he goes just 63 for 64. He doesn't win. You know what I mean? It's that crazy. We're at the end of the day. If you just, if you go out of control good putting and then you look at that stat and you're like, man, if I would have missed a couple of those over the week. If I went way above tour average, almost nearly perfect, I lose the tournament. I've come in second. That is, that is so hard for these guys to be able to accept. Like, how do you even think about that pre tournament? Being like, I could go 63 for 64 and not win this thing. Are you kidding me? We've gone over it a lot. Every golf tournament is a tie. There's winners and there's losers, but it's a tie. If you just the way that the strokes go, everyone is at the same place. So from four feet, the PGA Tour average is 88% from 5 feet, 77% from 6 feet, 66% from 7 feet 58%. So that like the fact that no matter how many he had and like Dan said, maybe 40 of those are tap ins or whatever, but that's still leaves another, you know, whatever it might be 12 to 20 something putts that he had that are in that probably four to 7 foot range where we're looking at 88%, 77%, 66%, 58%. You're bound to miss a few of those, and if you miss a few of those, like you said, he's barely in the top ten. Four of those you're not even in the top ten. That's amazing. And that's tour average. If you missed four. Yeah, but it's why the more sustainable is the ball striking. Because putting is binary like that, right? Like those putts are missed by one inch and it's a stroke, whereas if you're one inch off or a couple yards off of your approach plates, it's still on the green, it's still a good shot. So there's kind of a saying on tour where it's like, you want to be good week to week with your ball striking, but the guy who gets a hot putter wins. And so that's the difference. It's just a binary outcome. Barstool sportsbook, my two picks this week sucked. Adam hadwin had a great start. I had them top ten at like plus two 75, I think. He was like, tied for 7, some after the first round, very similar to Keegan the week before. He shot like a trillion on Friday, missed the cut. And then my guy, Justin suh, who made the cut, was looking pretty good. He shot like a million over the weekend and finished like 50 at the top and so he missed.
