"Welcome back to bust it open. Remembering the territory's talking Awa, who better Dhabi than to talk Awa with than the legendary Greg Ganja, Greg Man. Thank you so much for the time today. Matt it's been a pleasure for both of us. If I'd have been any longer than eleven years. I'd really been legendary pro and been around. Dust on the leaves on finally, but eleven to store and out of talent. That's not true. There's people to talk to, but I will say this true story. Two weeks ago, we had the undertaker on, and my producer says to me well I. You know that's it. Bucket list is over I, so wait a second. We still haven't gotten greg. I fucked the undertaker how to talk to Greg. Ganja and Tommy's non because he knows it's true, so it's great talking to you today for you to the undertaker's a great guy. Good good friend. Definitely. I do WANNA get into Nick Bach Winkle, but before we do. I do WANNA get into pro wrestling. You stay because I live in Jersey I was born and raised in New Jersey and. Tommy will tell you. I was I was never a big WWF. N. WWF to me, always came off a little cartoonish, so when the AWA was able to come to Jersey at the meadowlands with the NWEA. That was a a very big deal for me, and my dad took me I have the programs right next to? My Dad took me to all the shows. Do you have any memories that you can share about pro wrestling USA well, you know it was a good concept. It was just too many egos in a way. I, mean you try to bring all these promoters together. You had the Crockett's. It had bill watts a very strong powerful. Egos and vern and the birds wanted put it together, and then you had then you had jerry. Jarrett and Eddie Graham Down in Florida. Eddie was were easy to work with It was it was it was a little tough? They all had their own ideas on wage going. You know you really have to have that. One guy that has the final say. And they couldn't really come to an agreement on that It was unfortunate because by. If, they were to just. Listened in done it. it would have been very hard for McMahon to to compete with it. Right Greg. I did a movie with Ed Asner and a year and a half ago and It was the rest of goes career. He and I had told forgot about the wrestler and he goes. No, I did a movie about burn. Ganja I said Oh my God. Yeah, the Russell and he's like. Do you know dusty Rhodes and Dick Murdoch I said yes, I, do he? They're crazy. Because a great time I had filled me with these guys. They're all DUTT's. And I just laughed so hard, and then him and I were just schouten shit about pro wrestling. You know how much he enjoyed it but film in that movie and you think about that movie and how we see documentaries about the business. That movie was so ahead of its time. Go back and watch it now about you know the training, but it was also like a work documentary. You know it's it's amazing. How like who had that foresight to do that? Movie? That was vern was his how? Ezra was. He gave him Birmingham good friends He wrote me a little note. When Verne passed away, and and and I wrote his daughter when when when Ed passed away, but I talked to a few times he was just got. He was a great guy and fun, and he loved being around the guys because they you know. We had quite a crew here. At that time I could imagine. Then you know while mcdaniel. It was interesting, Ray, Stevens Nick Bach Winkle. Bobby Heenan. You know he's. talked by anyone guys about Nick Bachmann. We talk about him. Get talk about Bobby Heenan because Bobby Heenan Without Bobby Heenan Nick would have done. Really. Really well. You know because as the aws belt. And he was the he was a heel, wrestling champion, and he he. He did it as good as anybody. But once you put Heenan with him and Ray Stevens at electrified that thing. A Bobby Heenan there was there was nobody better in the wrestling business and Bobby Heenan as a manager and in the ring. He was phenomenal. into his his character, and when you put him with Nick It. the chemistry. There was unbelievable. And when I think of Nick Boxing obviously the talk about Bobby Heenan I talked about Nick Bach Winkle as the champion and feud with Hogan and it's it's so upsetting because that feud with Hogan was like right at the caused by gets. You felt the momentum going in. It was dislike and you know they. You know something would happen where you know. Know Big get this Walla. Fide or something would happen or Hogan would get disqualified. Say you know you're just about to get the payoff of this long beautiful story, and then you know the legs got under, but I mean that bill of that feud was absolutely incredible. Well those there's only two people that knew where this was gone was Vernon myself? In? Bern was hesitant. Even tell me. But Hogan got mad because he didn't get the get the title. and. Vern we had had a battle royal in Saint Paul. In. November. In. The winner was forced to be me back WINCO And in the thing it ended up Andrea and Hogan, and they just bumped into each other backed back. And we had twenty two thousand people in Arena. And they just turned flow and looked at each other in the place when dead silent. And my dad's said Shit we got a call a he called Vince right away. Vinci's said Hey. I need Andrea for February the whole month of February. Run? And Andrea and in February of eighty three. And then Hogan and Bach Winkle in April. On Network TV on CBS. CBS contacted us in. Back in the fall, and that's revert. Who's going with the thing? He didn't tell anybody. Wow, and then that that would have been network TV and that's Morgan never came back from from job. When he came back from Japan and come back to the W way and had, and then they called Andrei from us in February so. Oh my goodness, I never heard those stories before Ryota. Heard that you're the guys, the first one I've told a couple of other people at. First, I told all. Told Hogan that when I saw him the Fox, PERMIRA and California. Said if you just hung in these I, never wanted to leave the W I loved it. There is I wagon Oji were to listen. You know when I called you I said. Hey, there's something in store for you. Just hang in here. And you know, don't walk out at least you know. If you want to leave leave, but I would make your your matches here. We all end of December all our big arenas sold out. With him and Jim nine six men with boggling golden. Stevenson Heynen or a blackwell, an I suggest finish that out that if you wanna go go, but don't burn bridges, and I said in you should listen because there's something coming up for you down the road. But is well. Vince Vince GonNa. Pay Me more than. I'll make. Has a ship you you're making. To see that to believe it. But I guess that's what.

"Welcome back to busted open remembering the territory's talking about the AWA and Tommy were here with Gregg. genucel please for first time ever in the eleven year history a busted open to talk to Greg Ganja and obviously greg was a star in the Awa and they were not short on stars Tommy from you know Nick Bach Winkle to Wa- mcdaniels some dog for Schon Brad Reagan's the whole Cogan Rick Martel. Stars Tommy in the AWA. I cannot pinpoint one person when I think of the face of the way, this has to be a complete show to talk about a Mount Rushmore, of the Awa just because there was so many great associated with the brand. Well I mean obviously on any Mount Rushmore, but especially the one for the AWA vern. Ganja needs to be on that Mount Rushmore, and you know a lot of younger fans Tommy and we're here with Gregg Gonyea as well. A lot of fans don't understand how big the AWA was Tommy. We did a whole special on the wrestling magazines on how important those magazines were well when you look at the rankings which was at the end of the magazines, which is probably more important than anything else in the magazines when you. You look at the NWEA X. to it would have the world champion when you look next to the AWA it would also say world champion, and then when you look at the WWF would just say champion so I think when you look at the two most important and biggest bodies of professional wrestling, it would be the NWEA and the AWA. That's how I grew up as the order of all and then true, you know, I guess the expansion kind of changed everything, but I wanNA talk about the glory days of. I don't WanNa talk. Negative about the aws screw that stupid expansion are hated. Old COGAN! Well, you know. It was funny deal because I wrestled. Shea Stadium and Hogan was on the card that night against. Andre the giant. and. I was on about the second or third match, and then I went out with some friends style. Andrea Hogan Ahmen. It was just A. It was not a very good match. And Andrei just ate him up and so we're not with PAT, Patterson and Ricky steamboat a couple of the guys when we came back to the hotel and I'm going up to my room and down, the hall is setting the Hulk. As a man. What's a matter? I can't make it in wrestling now. As a yeah, you, can you just need some some better training? I mean you've got. You've got the looks and everything. I just need some work. Why don't you come to the AWA? Someone back and I told my dad about her. So there's this guy in New York as Hogan I said he would be phenomenal here. But he needs a lot of work. Lot at work, he said well. You know have them call me. I told the Call Burnin, took him three months to meet call and we're doing the Phil Donahue show we had done. donnas Jesse Ventura Jim in myself. Some of the girls couple of midgets and we did an hour on the Phil Donahue show and Vern Hogan was supposed to meet us there. He drove from Florida and vern through on the last minute, and a half with Fillon, and he said I'm going to throw them on for an interview and I swam heard. Do an interview and I. I don't know if you WANNA do that like TV. Is Horrible. Vern system. This is the guy. I said Gee. She just needs some help. Saw Burn worked with him on his personality in his interviews Jiminy worked out with them, and we put him in six man tag team matches, and we would die. Take him in at the right spot. We're working an arm. We'd say grabbed the. Toilet Drop League on pay up and we only let him get in when for a comeback or When he we had the advantage, and then he started catching on and got the pace of it and from their houses history. Did you ever feel extra pressure like? I know growing up. There was a lot of second generation wrestlers that couldn't fill a their father's shoes. I really think for your generations. Really you and Kurt hitting the guys that did, but did you have an extra pressure to kind of be like you're the son of Burn Ganja. Now I never looked at it that way Tommy. You know if I did I wouldn't make it and. Be, yourself and that's all I was trying to do is just be myself I didn't. You, know I it was always over my head and people would always. Ask me about it, but. I never felt that way. I just wanted to do my own thing and when we were training versus a pick out things from the people that you like. and. Put them into your own personality and I. Did I took some from Billy Robinson who took a lot from burnt took in the other was read best in and then Ray Stevens, those are the four guys that I really really watched and you know is. The baby faces Robinson. Vern and Best in and then as a heel. There wasn't anybody better than Ray. Stevens was timing and everything, and I really learned timing from him, watching him in getting it and You know any Vaudin just did my own thing and and Jim. I became We played football together, Minnesota I got him into the sport and we got him back from Kansas City. We teamed up and. Everybody said we wouldn't make it and. You know can worked out a little differently. When you look at the Awa and Tommy I talk about this all the time. A lot of the legends Kinda. Get overlooked when you look back and you know I guess are under appreciated or underrated. You mentioned one in red. Bastien I mean read Stephen. I remember growing up. You know he was really regarded as one of the greats and has truly gotten forgotten over time. Why do you think that is? And why do you? It's just because the evolution of the sport. You know I don't know what McMahon I'd I don't get his networks I. Don't Wa-. Nobody puts on there, but. I mean in the Awa going going way back. I remember growing up and my dad's me to saint. Paul Auditorium in the added chemicals. Against Mitchell Eric Allah in Kendra Chablis four heels. And it was bloody match and I was about I. Don't know six seven years old, and we walk him back to the to the hallway where the locker rooms were and I look in and I see the doctor sewn up. Mitsu and and and Era Kala and then I see the camera cops getting sewed up down in another one and I. Turn My dad and I said one thing I know for sure I never wanted to be a wrestler. Gene Kaminsky hard boiled haggerty Leona Malini. You, know Wilbur Snyder Dick the bruiser the crusher. I mean the crusher was A. Huge? Focal point here in the subway. He was it was alleged. Know he was he was. Steve Austin of that time. Receive Austin was the crusher of his time. You know the beer drinker and told it the way. He, he could only tell it.

"In in Vernon and I know run by by Cantieri of careful. How I word this for the satellite radio. Don't forget. Case, so you gotta be concurs. You Can Adler. So ruined said the fuck you are. Out Tell you what lineup everybody here? All three I'm going down to the ring and they can come in one at a time two to time three two time. If I don't beat him, all I'll quit wrestling. And nobody get in the ring with him. So, he said I'm wearing my wrestling tights and my boots, and if I don't make it that way, I won't make it, but I'm gonNA. Make it and he became the first. Major Star on Network TV. And I guess a friend of mine told me that in the World Book Guinness of Records. He holds the record for the first athlete besides Babe Ruth to make one hundred grand. They made that nineteen fifty. And he would tell the story that you know all that. All the territories are still out there so they would. They would grab a couple of the the stars of the Network TV and bring immense. They bring vern in Pat. O'connor into Buffalo New York. And they get in there and the plane was a little late in. It's snowing and. God the traffic's backed up and they said man. What's going on here in town is GonNa. Kill our gate. Or they get to the arena, and there was twenty thousand people turned away from the event that night. So then he knew what the power of TV was, and he wanted to change the. The philosophy of rustling at that time, there was gorgeous, Gorgeous George, and you know a lot of Gimmick, would they? Called Gimme wrestlers at that time. And he won more athletes and he brought in Dick the bruiser in. killer Kowalski a Yukon Eric mature Kim Mulia Kalmykov brothers you know it was quite an array of talent that he ended up bringing in to the national TV and actually spending the time and training. And I think that's the biggest thing about the AWA. In regards to any other promotion was really not only the athleticism, but the foundation in amateur wrestling I think that's what made the Awa so unique? Oh, it was I mean. The wrestling camp was so tough. You couldn't believe it and we had to learn how to utter Russell and I mean Russell Russell shoot the way they call it and if you couldn't do that, you probably. Probably couldn't make it with with Fern I. mean his philosophy was when you go in the ring? A better know how to Russell and you'd better you know you put your matched. The other with wrestling holds and I get forget how to get out of the holds and and doing everything else after that, so it was a heck of an education. We went six hours a day. six days a week, plus then we had to lift weights afterwards and the camp. Start Out it might can't. We were really fortunate? We had RIC flair Jim Brown Zell The Iron Sheik Ken Patera myself and Bob Braggers Bob came out of pro football. He was about thirty two at the time, so he never really made it just because of his age. You know he didn't quite catch on Vern train sides as fodder Ricky steamboat gun. The Anderson Brothers only liars Gene Wow You know people don't even realize that, but sent a lot of people all over the country blackjack Mulligan blackjack Lanza. The list goes on and on. And how it was the same camp every time man you started out. With start out with a thousand free squads. the called hindered squads with a little jump step in them, and we start out with four such a twenty five in in our camp. We had one hundred one hundred guys in the for after the first hour. That was six of US left. Everybody else had dropped off. I mean the calisthenics we had to do the squad's. A all these calisthenics inside the ring. Then we got in the rain. We did another hour in the ring of Calisthenics. He'd stand on your head that turnbuckle. Build your neck up. You get on all fours. One Guy would sit on your back facing apps direction with his head from your head, and then he'd do a as sit up, and then you'd have to push them up with your neck would build strong necks, and then the next hour might behold encounter homes and doom thousand times the fourth hour be bumps. We probably do a thousand bumps a day. And then hit the ropes. You know in those first six weeks you know Thomas you know tears all the skin off your your body and all black and blue, but You just keep working through it and then Then we would do the fifth hour generally was submission wrestling. Billy Robinson was our trainer, and he had a in between him and burn the. A. Number of horrible holds the. Got Stretched really bad. You know they'd show you three or four, and then you'd have to get on the map with them. And then the thoroughness a he the arms open and you'd go to put that. Hold on, and they'd reverse. Crank your. Foot up your ass. You know and. Screaming like crazy. But and then the last hour we went out, we did We did win sprints. We did run twenty yards walk. Twenty yards run twenty yards for half hour and then we'd go over I. He had this farm that we're in an old barn with the we're on the second floor, no windows and one lightbulb above the the ring. And We went from September to January of January and you know his fifteen twenty below zero out there. And we go across the road. He had There was a river there with river bluffs, and we'd run up and down those and then we would run back to the back to the barn, which about a mile away and butter and flair. We should the last two. Little tiny steps trying to get back in Vernon billy streaming. Adam but that was quite account I mean. When you came out of there you were pretty ready. You were pretty ready. And, you talk about the stars you mentioned campaign. Terry mentioned ric Flair when we come back Tommy with Gregg Ganja. We WanNA. Talk about the stars. That really made the AWA will do that. We're back on remembering the territory's Awa. Right here busted open. You're listening to bust. It opens a W territory special, only on Sirius. XM fight nature. Channel One fifty six. The, Aqaba rock show Mike Tyson has the fire in. That doesn't sound anything like Holyfield's mindset towards if only fill wants to put on a spectacle of adversary, it sounds like Mike Tyson once. Is masqueraded under the term exhibition. What he wants to you know and I don't thought for exhibition will satisfy that fired. Mike Tyson. I think it's going to be scheduled. The next edition titled the Next Vision When I. Think once Mike is in ring. It's going to turn into a fight weekdays from twelve to one PM Eastern. On siriusxm fight, nation Channel One fifty-six Dave league-record NEC. W Legend Tommy Dreamer take a look back at one of the most historic wrestling territories, the American wrestling association this busted. Open Awa territory special with Special Guest Gregg God yet..
"awa" Discussed on Busted Open
"To bust it open remembering the territory's myself David Greco and my tag team partner today, the innovator of violence, the landlord of the House of Hardcore, himself, Tommy, dreamer and Tommy today with. The Awa, no, yeah, we are I'm super excited I. Don't remember how I got the Awa besides the wrestling magazines that we've talked so much about because that was our internet before the Internet was invented, but I used to love the Awa. You WanNa talk about. You know today's wrestling where we talk about the third brand of NFC AWA was a major powerhouse in professional wrestling. And you look at the rosters, and you look at the hall of fame members that the ADA brought to us. It's just saw. It's so enriched in wrestling history. I can't wait to talk about it as `specially. Talk with our guest because he is the man. Yes, we're going to introduce our guest than just one second I'll tell you exactly how we were able to get the Awa in the New York Metropolitan. Metropolitan, Area Tommy were were both from an ad is w pix channel eleven on Saturday mornings. We were able to get the w eight and later on on ESPN, but you mentioned our guests, so let's bring him in. Somebody knows not only a part of the AWA. Only a tag team champion with Jim, bronze L., but also the son of the legendary the iconic vern Ganja. We bring in Greg on your right now, Greg, how are you today Sir well good. Thank you very much for yarn. Good seeing you all again. Again I don't think ever saw you dave but. You something about me. You look good. Is it just the three of us or not, just the three of us. Okay, it's the three of us in the busted open nation and you know busted open is the number one sport show on Sirius? XM and I think a big reason. Why is because pro wrestling? Fans are so loyal, and when you look at the Awa and that loyal fen fan base especially where it was regionally IN MINNEAPOLIS MINNESOTA You would have to say Greg that the AWA loyalists were definitely that loyal. Oh, they were you know and it was a. it was a big territory. You know we covered more more ground than any other league in the in the in the USA we were from Winnipeg Canada Saint Louis all the way to the west coast scene. Our major cities were when Abegg. Green Bay Milwaukee Chicago Saint Louis. Did the quad cities. We did Omaha Lincoln Denver Phoenix Salt Lake City Las Vegas and Oakland and San. Francisco plus Vancouver and Montreal once in Awhile in Toronto once in a while while Greg. Covered what was what was a average week for you? As a wrestler in the sense of travel schedule, we know the W is a little bit different than average everybody else. burns philosophy was a in in in the Midwest and in the in this part of the United States from. Winnipeg to the west coast. people in May and June didn't come up much. They wanted to get out. They'd been cooped up all winter, so we took the whole month of May and the first two weeks of June off and only ran the major cities, which was usually Thursday Friday Saturday sometimes Sunday in the summer saw our load is about two hundred fifty to two hundred seventy matches a year whereas you know in the Charlotte area, the Florida Area Texas New York. They're going three hundred sixty five days a year, and and some of them twice on the weekend. So we're able to because of that because of the major cities. Verne was able to get. The best talent in here all the time you know they had time is big thing. He wanted time for their families and they peop- The guy said time for their families, so they made great money We didn't have We had four or five matches all we had on a card and we're sold out from one end of the country to the other most of the time in our television ratings were the highest of any TV show except for sixty minutes across the country. Wow, and you know here in New York area people talk about Madison Square Garden. In Atlanta. They talk about the arm the. When I think of the AWA. I think of the Saint Paul Civic. Center I mean that was the bigger in a arena that all the TV, really kinda surrounded correct, will it? Did we did it out of here? We did Minneapolis out of the studio here and then we would film the the two places. We found a winnipeg just ruin. Ascend up there so they. They took the matches across Canada. That's why we we did a lot Canada and and then we got ESPN earwood adventure took his nationwide but Yes Saint Paul, you know. The Denver Auditorium was unbelievable, CHICAGO? We use the Russell both the apathy. The rosemont horizon. Balance San Francisco is quite an a quite. An adventure the Oakland Coliseum. I. Mean you know it was all major buildings and There was it was hot. It was fun. We we. All Know About Your Dad's amateur background, but I think professional wrestling. He's known for being the trainer of trainers You went through that camp. Can you get talk about because it's such a different way of training today and you know, but your dad He has some legendary. we countered it up one day twenty, one hundred forty four wrestlers. On out of that Ninety but ninety nine percent of all ended up being made event wrestlers. And his flashy was he started. started wrestling in nineteen, forty, nine here in Minneapolis, and came out of an amateur bachelor of yours human, and are SORTA, so it was a big star. MINNESOTA ALREADY NCA champion rest in the nineteen forty eight Olympic team as an alternate. so he he had a name for himself and his first match us to tell us. Was Abe King Kong Cassie And some of his buddies were in the front row, one his bud grant. Or biking coach billy by in Jim laskey and Burns Wrestling Abe King Coin Cash E.. And He was getting the crap out of him pretty good and the three guys stood up in cash. She leaned over the ropes they said said on punks. and. They all sat back down but they told Bernie was too small, so they sent him to the Homa which we lived in a trailer at the time, and he hooked it up behind the car, and my mom and dad drove to Tulsa. Oklahoma. And in two weeks became the light heavyweight champion. And then we made that circuit down there. You Know Tulsa Downing through Texas back in Louisiana and in in back to Oklahoma. And then in nineteen fifty get a call from Fred Kohler the promoter in Chicago. And, he said a burn. We'd like to bring into Chicago. We're going to go on network TV. Which is that time? Was the Dupont network which eventually became wgn? And he so we'd like you to come in. So this was the story. Burn used to tell so I fly into Chicago on. Get into the get into the arena and Fred comes up me and you've got about thirty guys in the locker room and he said. Burn here's what we're going to do with you. Tonight. Rian dressed up as a Martian. We're in a laureate from the ceiling..
Bill Belichick issues statement on passing of Don Shula
"Legend in Football Coaching Don Shula Passed away a few days back. And he was a remarkable guy. The length of time that he spent the sport Certainly warrants his hall of fame status But what's been very interesting in the last twenty four hours or so is The relationship between him and Bill Belichick was frosty. Shall we say frosty And you could see that in the comments that Bill Belichick made Bob. I Dunno using your backyard. Yeah about that. It did not escape anyone's attention that Bill Belichick's tribute to Don Shula Awas on the surface completely Appropriate from one an icon to another Was carefully worded. And it's in so far as he the two key aspects of his tribute ahead to do what he called him one of the all. I'm quoting one of the. All Time. Coaching figures in an NFL history and he was any lauded him for his. He said he was quote the standard for consistency and leadership unquote.
A Shortwave Christmas Carol
"Hello anybody there so matty. Yes ma'am last week Brit and I connected to a radio station she's visa. I am radio in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania have a conversation with space physicist and electrical engineer Nathaniel result. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here and in two two thousand fourteen. His research took him to Antarctica cool. Yeah home to the South Pole and hub of scientific activity with research stations and field camps spread across the continent. New Zealand has a station down there. Several European countries due to scientists are asking questions. You can only answer in Arca and the Southern Ocean this time of year about wildlife wildlife like penguins. Yeah sure like penguins microbiology. tectonics the northern lights. Daniel was down there to look at the earth's magnetic field and polar regions. I picture this whole space. Mattie like science summer camp but spread across a desolate icebound landscape. What a dream? Yeah you're kind kind of summer camp and these people. They're far from home. which can be really tough? During the holidays so nathaniel when he was down there took part in a musical tradition tradition. That cues up every year on this day December. Twenty four South Pole station. We're ready and standing by thinks the Antarctic a Christmas carol basically the different stations in Antarctica. Sing to each other over shortwave radio. Oh my God this is legitimately the cutest thing you're seeing over the radio Transmission was from the Amundsen Scott South Pole station ahmanson shadow yacht ought. Here's a Christmas Carol from the Italian station. Mario's a Kelly singing an Italian Christmas Carol. I really liked service. I firmly believe this cute Nathaniel would have to agree with you and it's a beautiful thing and you know the different stations and people they have to have to watch out for each other because it's it's difficult environment down there and annual listening at McMurdo Station in a Blue Penguin Hoodie. Sure I'll add wondered if this caroline could be heard beyond Antarctica by shortwave listeners. And other parts of the world he wanted to know how far can these transmissions Israeli travel so how far away were people able to listen well. Before the Caroline Begin thin you'll put out an alert to shortwave radio listener saying hey if you I can hear this email us a lot of snow and people did. They were able to tune in. He got emails from the Netherlands. South America places far away from Antarctica. Some people were able to catch snippets of this singing at the bottom of the world so today. On the show shortwave. podcasts looks at shortwave radio how it works how it travels. And how anything of result is leveraging. A community of shortwave radio listeners for science. Emily Kwong are short. We've expert is nathaniel. Yes he's an assistant professor of physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Okay so obviously I know shortwave the charming daily science podcast. But tell me about shortwave. As in shortwave radio so since since the nineteen hundreds we've been using radio waves to communicate. The waves are all different sizes the lower the wave's frequency the longer the wavelength one. Of the unique characteristics. Of shortwave shortwave. Radio is that it can travel. The radio. Waves can travel long distances very long distances around the world because there are three to thirty megahertz hurts in frequency they travel through space to this electrically charged part of our atmosphere called the ionosphere and are reflected or refracted back down to Earth. If we didn't did not have the atmosphere these shortwave signals would travel off into space and not be able to travel around the globe but luckily for us. They can travel around the globe. They they propagate far distances and those with receivers on earth are able to listen. Nathaniel loves shortwave. Because you don't need a lot of equipment to send and capture one of these transmissions oh it can be incredibly simple. You need a transmitter on one side and a receiver on the other and a decent antenna and when I say A transmitter there. There are some people who they make their goal to talk as far around the world is possible with that as little as equipment as possible as low power as possible so maybe using a quarter of a awas and ten dollars worth of parts people are able to send signals that. Get the go all the way around the globe. This is the ultimate Lo fi form of communication gathering. Yeah and that communication could be anything broadcast propaganda spice stations emergency information weather reports rag chewing which is a term mm to describe people just talking about their daily life so radio twitter. Yeah the transmission just has to fall within the right frequency range to count ashore wave and there's an international community of hobby radio operators who seek out a special license from their respective governments to do this. That's called Ham Radio Ham. Yeah that's the hobby Of using this radio so nathaniel discovered that community on a boy Scout Jamboree Ham radio operator had set up a station in the middle of the woods and just turned all his crackling and buzzing sounds coming out of a radio and I heard him talking to these faraway places and and that was just really fascinating fascinating to me and he was hooked got his license in Nineteen Ninety Eight. Just a teenager transmitting to whoever's listening in the northern New Jersey New York metropolitan area area so just pure bruce springsteen propaganda it was mostly just his call son and seventy three. This is W. Two and AF whiskey to November Alpha Foxtrot threaten seventy-three means best regards. It's a pretty common ham. Radio sign off eventually he upgraded to a better transmitter through a wire out the window of his bedroom and attached hatched tree in his front yard and he managed to get a hold of a station in Hungary and it was just a very short contact. But you know that was pretty neat you just throw a wire out your window. And you're able to talk to guy in Hungary and and it worked in these moments stayed with him propelling his scientific methodology and his his career cool. Okay so tell me a little bit about that. How his nathaniel used shortwave for science in a lot of interesting ways because disturbances happening in the ionosphere on a sphere space weather solar wind conditions? All of that would affect radio waves so in Grad school he was able to show how a solar flare caused aradio blackout so cool. Yeah and during the big two thousand seventeen solar eclipse which I missed because it was cloudy. Tragedy so sad but Nathaniel hosted a community science experiment through his group Ham side. The group measured how the eclipse affected the transmission of medium and high frequency radio waves. And the way he's using radio for scientific inquiry is so innovative that this year the National Science Foundation awarded him a one point. Three million dollar grant deign to do what well he wants to bring. Universities and this network of Ham radio operators together to track. What's going on in the ionosphere where short waves propagate in a more day to day way which we we don't really do right now? No not really. We don't really understand what happens on short timescales like why is the fear doing this in New York City but doing doing something else in Pennsylvania overhead and Pennsylvania and. Why is that important to understand the ionosphere to that level of detail? Well we as a planet Senate are really dependent on things happening in space and disturbances in the ionosphere do affect communication satellites global positioning systems. which are used to land planes all these tools? We rely on to keep us safe and connected and so it's very important to try to understand how everything is is is connected together in order to make this systems more robust and and in order to make them work. And in order to you know transmit Christmas carols around the world essential I think a lot of Ham radio for me has always been about connecting people from different parts of the world together. And and you know if you if you even look at like why Ham radio exists if you actually look in the the laws I believe. It says that it's for international goodwill and It's important to try and promote this international goodwill kwon. Do you think our podcast connects people all around the world. I mean we don't have three million listeners. That's how how many people listen to him radio now yet. Not with that attitude okay. I know world domination is your project but I will say I got into radio because I enjoyed tuning in and not knowing what I was going to hear our podcast definitely. Does that help so I think so so from our team to whoever is out there listening in in the world happy holidays. Happy Holidays
Where Does Cam Newton Go From Here?
"Jeremy the first line of your story is he can't go out like this. It's kind of crazy to me that that is even being said about Cam. Newton in the first place if you look at the situation with the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton a the guy that called Superman of former. MVP It's just hard to make sense of it. ESPN NFL writer. Jeremy Fowler has spent the last few weeks reporting on Cam Newton's future going into the season. If you told me Cam Newton would potentially be on the way out of Carolina and there will be this big mess I would not by any stretch have believed you before we get into do the confluence of factors that led us to this moment. Explain why it's so unusual to even be having a conversation like this about a quarterback quarterback like Newton. It is crazy because he changed the game. This is a guy that was bred to be a winner from his days at Auburn he won the national championship number. One overall pick set rookie records for total yards goes on to win and MVP in two thousand fifteen three different seasons of ten or more wins and everything was lined up for this guy to be a top five top ten quarterback for the next fifteen twenty years the lineup. What an improvisational play by Cam? Newton he altered the way. We look at the style of the quarterback quarterback position. Because we've seen running quarterbacks before but this is a guy who's flipping into the end zone quarterback he's making making the superman sign with his arms after scoring and you know he was such an imposing figure that he looked like a combination of a pass rusher linebacker and a running back coming at you full speed and the whole mack truck. That was something that the League really hadn't seen even before my goodness this is the NFL. You're not supposed to be able to do that. And then there was the off field appeal. This is a guy who show up to his press conferences like it was a fashion show. He's got the a bedazzled hats glasses being able to be orally gifted something that I think master to a degree. I I mean this is a guy that we couldn't take is off of whether he was on the field or off it. Do you think his style of football in some some ways impacted his body in a way that led us to this point it has to be a factor. I mean we're talking about a guy who's taken eleven hundred hundred plus hits since two thousand eleven and more than half of those at been in the last four years since around two thousand fifteen. It's more than Russell Wilson. More than any other guy. Things Ziff piled up on them as a result he was all about power shear power that was part of what made him so great. He did bulldoze the open-field he could run for the thirty yards and so just the pounding as a result has clearly affected where he is now so the first few years of camps career sort of builds towards this magical season in two thousand honey fifteen he's the MVP and it all leads up to the Super Bowl and what should have been a high point for him ended up being low one the panthers lose and perhaps unfairly the indelible memory for a lot of people is the fumble. He failed to recover. Do you think that game changed perceptions of him will it stripped him of his invincibility one personnel exact told me the Denver took his Superman Cape. They took it away and he was never the the same after that. And that's probably unfair as it's one game on the biggest stage but you know Denver played them a certain way where they kept hitting them. The seven secs comes out of the hands on the ground and still on the ground picked up by. Jj Line and since then came sense of some really good moments elements. But it's been a little hit or miss even on the field when he is in the lineup and so it was a turning point for a career that was at a wildly high trajectory. At that point you know you're talking about not only MVP season but he could get into the end zone. Whenever he wanted that year? It was just. He played a pretty much flawless season. And then and it also changed after that game so that super bowl is kind of a turning point for Cam than what happened last season in two thousand eighteen last season he was a potential. MVP candidate after the first eight or so weeks. The panthers are sitting at six into Newton. Looks Great Nineteen total touchdowns. You know he's rushing but he's also being patient in the pocket making throws so. This was a team that was on the rise and was sort of Recapturing maybe the magic. They had a couple of years earlier for that Super Super Bowl run so it was nothing but promising at that point an annual in early November. You go to Pittsburgh go to Heinz field. You're thinking this'll be another turning point for your season and then Tj Awa- comes off the blindside. He knocks Cam Newton. He runs right into that right shoulder into the turf he had already been on the injury report with a shoulder injury. They didn't think of a series of that time but watts shot clearly reaggravated things to the point where by the end of the year. He was struggling to throw the ball. Forty forty five yards. It was pretty ugly out there right. I mean he wasn't pulled but I remember. They stopped using him for Hail Marys N. It became apparent that something was deeply wrong saw. I saw that throw by CAM it. It didn't reach the end zone. landed a good fifteen yards short of the goal line. This is a guy that could throw sixty five yards on a rope and so they're taking them out and put Taylor Heinecke of all people to throw a deep ball. I mean you know. There couldn't have been a deeper foreshadow for maybe the problems that were rising with Cam Newton's future all right so he ends up shutting it down for the last two games of that two thousand eighteen season and in the off season as in he has some shoulder surgery but by the time this season starts it seems like he has recovered and things are looking optimistic again for Cham. How does the twenty nine thousand nine season actually begin for him? Throwing the ball. He looked pretty. Tentative no touchdown passes in the first two weeks he didn't really look as comfortable as he normally. Does you that. You can win games with them but certainly not an MVP level that they're used to so after the panthers second game against the Bucks it's revealed that Cam has some kind of foot foot injury but nobody really knows what's going on right. There's a lot of mystery around the injury and then all of a sudden can't puts out this fifteen minute youtube video here. We go here we we are just record. I want to be brutally honest. The video Was Him basically chillan in a hat and glasses. And he's in like this leather black chair. He opens up about his foot injury. As I'm about to jog dog around. I realize I feel like I'm in the game but it's like something. Something's missing bizarre. But it's it was good that he came on spoke about it and try to provide some clarity and in that video he basically said got hurt in the preseason Kurt the foot against the Patriots this is where I got him away because automatically. I thought I got play we. I can't let my fans down. He basically told coaches. Hey I'm good I'm all good. You know I'm Superman I can. I can continue to play and then once we to hit he reaggravated injury injury. What happened is with his foot? Is You have metatarsal bones. And they separate from the base of the FA. That's a list rank injury but if it's a really bad separation or some sort of break than usually need surgery cam has not had that yet which pretends everybody to believe that. He's got a sprain but a pretty really bad one and it just hasn't healed yet but he doesn't want to have surgery if I'm able to get the time all for me to heal and get back to a one hundred percent is it. Then I have no doubt in my mind everything that we won't as a team can still be accomplished. He made clear in the video that I need to go away and get back to what I was. And that's -nificant anytime a player says that that means they're out that doesn't mean they're going to rush back to play and so he basically new I think at that point I was GonNa shut it down

Drug prices in TV ads may not lower costs
"The transparency as it would seem with drug prices being announced in TV ads could we as consumers trust that information. Here in light some of the challenge in the devil's always in the details. Right. So the complexity by which drugs or Baden sold in the United States is is immense. And what I mean by that is drug marketplace actually worked a lot like the stock market does or the commodities market, it fluctuates daily based on what's called, the Awa WP or average wholesale price. And so here in lies the challenge of drug manufacturer posting a price online because what secretary as our wants them to do in. The Trump administration wants them to do is have to list their eight of UP, but that changes almost on a daily basis. So there is some some decal they're gonna need to be ironed out. The other thing that consumers need to be aware of why what is going to be posted. If it's the VP is not what the consumer will pay at least not directly because the consumer is going to pay whatever their insurance co payment or co-insurance level is at the end of the day and that formularies varies based on which. Insurance company are using here's the indirect way that the consumers paying for it though. And why I'm glad that this is a ruling a rule that's going to be impl- implemented, the consumer's always paying the price of the drug whether that is through a co payment or whether that is through insurance premiums at the end of the day, eventually the consumers paying for most consumers don't know what the true costs of drugs. Are they only know what their co payment is? And if we want to start to reduce the cost of healthcare in the United States, the consumer needs to understand the entirety of the cost, generally speaking. I know that the pharmaceutical companies do not like this proposal is that because they're trying to hide something or because it actually is complicated. Based on the way, you explained it before. I it's a little bit of both the primary thing that the pharmaceutical industry doesn't like about this is the latter. It's it's it's it's the amount in which that's going to be disclosed on what the. The cost of these drugs are now understand though that in the distribution market of this. It's not just a pharmaceutical company that hates this. There's a lot of stakeholders or proverbial hands in the cookie jar prescription drugs. If you will and the main one is what's called the pharmacy benefit manager, the PBS of which most are owned by insurance companies, you talk about a conflict of interest, and they really don't want this out there because PBS make their money. I e v insurance companies make money based on the spread what I mean by that is the insurance company via the PBS will buy the drug at a price market up, and then resell it to the end consumer through the formularies structure, and that's how insurance companies owned owning PBS make a lot of money. And so this is going to allow the consumer to start to see behind the curtain of all those hands that are that cookie jar. So there's a lot of people that do not want this to
