Babylon in the book of Revelation what is it?

"Have you ever watched someone blow glass. I've seen that happen a couple of times in my life. There is a glass artist. He takes that Blob of glass and then he s that long tube and blows through, and of course, an object usually a nice object is formed. If, you've ever had the chance to watch that type of activity. You know that that Blob of glass is Red Hot. That glass is not one would be formed into something else unless it is extremely hot put under great stress. When we look at the Bible, we could compare God in terms of his people to a glass blower. The Bible teaches that God finds his people. The Bible teaches that God allows people sometimes as Peter said to go through fiery trials to reshape them and form them. One. Old testing sample that was certainly be joked when you think about what happened to that man chapter after chapter disaster after disaster attack after attack by as friends job was slowly being someone who was refined. As we look at scripture, we know that the Bible teaches that man has people have free. Will we because we have free wheeler allowed to seek God and pursue a life with him or we can rejected We can obey God or we can choose to not Obam the choices and wet in the choices that we have live spiritually speaking as well as other choices are literally up to us. Suppose though. Suppose that we are someone who decides that we want to seek God. We know that's of interest to God because Second Peter Chapter Three in verse nine says God does not want anyone to perish in wants people to come to repentance. Let's say because we understand that God wants people come to everybody become a Christian that we do decide to become a child ago. What will God do in the life of that person? Well. That's a great question and that question if we wanted to answer it in a Broadway, we could have an entire series of lessons tonight though I want to focus in on one specific area. I want to think about gone in terms of a glass blower. And how that relates to the wife of his people, God is mentioned earlier or alluded to earlier will allow people to be tested. He will allow his people to be tried. And the Bible firms. Sometimes, God will allow his people to undergo what seems to be almost unbelievable hardships and difficulties. If we want that rest that we talked about this morning that eternal rest God says, it may cost you something. Now non-christian might think well, I'm pretty happy with my life I look characteristics and I looked at the way I live and I'm pretty satisfied with that. Well, that could be the case. But the question is not am I satisfied with my life the question is is God. Completely satisfied with her life for all of us as we go through life God is continuing to Prune and cream and refine and better things. So. It says, how do you know that I know that because of what Paul said Romans Chapter Eight and Bruce Twenty nine here Paul said God wants us to be conformed to the image of his son. And that process is a transformation process it doesn't happen overnight. It doesn't happen over a week or a month or year period. It is something that is ongoing as we continue to live now, Gabrielle ships people, but the technique that he uses is not always the same what God uses for job. He may not use for someone else tonight though we want to take a look at one of the tools that God might use and not only might this won't be one that God uses it might be a to God uses to refine a number of people. Looking at a number of things for the book of revelation. Tonight we WANNA think about. Babylon Babylon in the book of revelation if you were to read through the book of revelation, you'd find Babylon and three chapters revelation sixteen. Revelation seventeen revelation chapter eighteen. So you don't have to read a lot as far as revelation to get a good sense of Babylon. Babylon in the book of revelation is pictured as an enemy of God as well as an enemy of God's people. Babylon is also a power as far as how it's represented the tests or proofs and tries to do some very terrible thing. Took things the gospel as far as persecution. Now, when you start looking at the book of revelation and you find things like Babylon, John didn't just pull it out of his hat. Again. And again, Babylon is a perfect example of this Babylon back as well as a number of images to the Old Testament. and. If you WANNA get a sense of what something means that the book of revelation, you go back to the Old Testament and see how it was used there. If you want information about babbling you have to if you WANNA really go back to the beginning start with the Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis that's really where it begins. We're not going to recover that part of Hebrew history but moving forward some and Hebrew history, the nation of Israel was formed. And in five, eighty, six. Be. Southern Section of Israel, was taken captive by nation. You WanNA guess which one well, it was babbling. Babbling as you look at some of the old, testament books is important to a number of prophets. If you study the book of Isaiah Babylon his important, we'll see how that plays out tonight if you read the book of Daniel Babylon, it's important if you were a set of the book of Ezekiel, Babylon is important if you were going to read through the book of limitations, Babylon is important. Now. As we are thinking about, Babylon, you might wonder well I just. Can't really picture where that is I wonder what it is. Well, if you want to go and visit what used to be ancient babbling, go to the country of Iraq. And perhaps you would fly into the airport in Baghdad. If you're able to get to Baghdad Iraq, can you went a about sixty miles south of Baghdad? You would be in the area of Ancient Babylon? This area happens to be of interest to a lot of people especially archaeologists and there have been a number of people who have gone to Babylon Ancient Babylon, and the done some digging one man went there and he began did. And as he began to date, he told of how there was an occasion where he found some bones. Now they're all kinds of bones in the ground. But the bones of this man for found were not animals they were human bones. and not the human bones is I read his account of what happened to him. He said it was the skeleton of a child. And it wasn't just a skeleton of a child that was the skeleton of a young child, perhaps h three or h four. This man is he's there in the dirt as he uncovers the bones of this very young child. He said hit me. He said it hit me like a ton of bricks. He said I finally understood when I found those bones. Didn't know how the child died. But he said when I found those bones, he said he had dawned on me how the Jewish people looked at Babylon. Especially during the captivity. People that use God's people they came to Babylon and it wasn't a pleasant place. In fact, that's indicated in some of the Old Testament. Psalms Babylon for the Jew was a place of death for the Jew when they thought about Babylon that was a place of destruction when the Ju- thought about Babylon that was a place of pain. This was a place of persecution. This was the place that she didn't WanNa go dot allowed his people to be put into captivity for a number of years, several decades and it was bad. How bad was it? Well if we turn them in the book of Isaiah and take a look at the forty-seven Chapter Isaiah Chapter Forty seven verse six pictures Babylon in terms of oxen. We. Don't perhaps too often in our area, but we can't find it here. You imagine a team of oxen that's been yoked together. And you are their capture forty six you imagined someone who is heavy on the yoke someone who is pressing those oxen someone who is moving those oxygen to the maximum capacity. God said Babylon you are very hard on nations you are. Oppressive to other people and if you're looking at is h after forty, seven, hundred, six something else. Babylon was not only oppressive to other nations the Bible, says that they were oppressive to the aged they were oppressive to the old people. Now, let's take that and translate that into our time in America. Imagine if God said Or. The. Government said Christians who are senior citizens in America are going to the treated like that team. Of Oxen, if you are a senior citizen who is a Christian in America because the your Christianity, you're gonNA lose your social security check. If you're in a Christian in America because of your faith. You're going to lose your Medicare. If you're a Christian in America, you're no longer going to qualify for any government program. Can you imagine what that would be like? Can you imagine all the seniors after they get that information what do you mean Medicare is being taken away what do you mean my security checks being taken away? What do you mean that we're no longer going to food assistance? Can you not can you not imagine roaring cries the roaring cries that would be going up to God God. We are being oppressed God. We are being brutalised God. We're not going to be able to live how God we go into the able to survive. Where are you don't? You don't you love us don't you see your point About Soda, wouldn't it? The Jews babbling. That was how they were treated. God. Does see. And God does Care God does love his people but God sometimes allows people to be refined. And Baffling was a place of refinement. Jeremiah flipping over to that profit for a second Jeremiah Chapter Fifty One and I twenty got pictures. Babylon is a battle axe. Now, I don't know about you but I think that we've moved from ancient warfare to a lot better means of warfare but I still think when I see a battle lecture, that's a pretty formidable weapon. God. Said Babylon you are my battle axe when it comes to other nations you are so strong. You are so powerful you have the desire to go against other nations and God's that I'm willing to permit that. But if you vote against those other nations, you're also going to be fulfilling my will God used an image of a battle axe to say you are a strong and aggressive power. A little earlier that same chapter. Jeremiah. Chapter fifty one for seven God again, talking about Babylon Pictures Babylon is a cup and not just a cup but God says the Babylon you're like a cup in my hand a you are like a Golden Cup in my hand. And God said, all the nations of the Earth are drinking from this Cup once again, an Image Vindicate Battling Head Great Power. and. That passage Jeremiah Chapter Fifty one in verse seven God says the nation's drink from this Cup they're going insane. They're going crazy. There have been times when it seemed like a single nation rule, the world. During the time Babylon was power. It appeared that way. In fact, you probably remember from chapter to the story about the a king he had this dream and nobody could understand what the dream was and the king was upset by the people who could. Normally give interpretations and he put the order to death kill them all well Dang it was brought forward. Daniel said, can't. You don't have to tell me what the dream was I'm GONNA. Tell you what the dream was Daniels for the king, the meaning of the dream. and. You remember who the head of old. You. You who? The King Babble. It ruled the world it seemed to have global rule at that time. There is debate. Now's not the time to settle that but there is debate as far as whether or not Hitler wanted rule the world as we look at modern times, there may be some indications that China wants to rule the world and other places as well if that does happen. If we get to a point in time where there is by and large one nation that literally rules the world that period of time could be a time when it is once again, God's refining fire. Babylon had their opportunity and they help refine God's people a Syria was in power for a number of years. It seemed like it was the world power and for the most part it was they did spare God's people just like Babylon Inspire God's people, and then what about role? Once again, basically rule the world. and. On a number of occasions did not spare God's people as Zeki. He's another prophet that talks about Babylon and Ezekiel Chapter Nineteen in verse nine. This is kind of a fascinating reference because it gives us the image of suit keeping. You might not think the image of zookeeping is in the Bible, but it's there as equal nineteen in verse nine pictures. God's people Israel as a captured beast in this case, a captured why? Israel is pictured as being put in a cage by Babylon. And then being brought to Babylon once again, Israel was great. But it was purged was pruned. There may be times in the world when God's people feel helpless there May phoebe times in the world when people feel hopeless, there may be times in the world when God's people feel forsaken. When it seems like we're that ball of glass that's on fire. Red. Hot. There's only one right response for the Christian. And that responses clinging steadfastly to the faith of God? Refusing to give in refusing to submit to what's contrary to the will of God hold on even tighter. And never stopped trusting the will of God. Many years ago as we look the life of Christ, we find that there was a dad, a father who had a personal conversation with Jesus, this dad had a child. A son who was possessed by demon he brought childhood disciples. The disciples couldn't cast out the demon and Jesus is able then finally to meet up with this man. And this man was struggling in Mark Chapter Nine in Verse Twenty Four this man says the Jesus help my belief. He said, I'm here because I believe. But even though I believe. It's mixed with UNBELIEV and I'm struggling to have faith the dad knew that it was right to believe. The Dad wanted to believe. And the DAD was trying to believe but the dad was feeling like he just could not quite get over the hump. Challenging circumstances helped my unbeliev aid me during this difficult time did the man get assistance from Jesus or not? He did the son was healed. Like stand faith can be challenged and sometimes when the challenge comes, we are up to the test sometimes not. But that bake. Challenged. Can also be strengthened I'm GONNA. Come back to that point and just a minute. But for now, I WANNA give you a couple of references to talk about instant Babylon. They're just too important overlook what of them is sometimes used as a text to talk about the origin of statements about Babylon though back in the fourteenth chapter by saying, we have some information about bad one the tech says Bebel and thought it would exalt its throne above the stars of God. That's how it saw itself. Is In chapter fourteen of fourteen said it was going to make itself like the most time that was the power of Babylon it looked like it did control the world. What happens when civil authority? Achieves the level where it seems like it's equal or even greater than God. While tell you what happens if people are standing up for the faith are going to suffer persecution best. What happens to God? That's what happened to God's people. And history is replete with it. If we get to a point in time in human history whether it is recent whether it's something Lou facing the recent few the next step Q. years or whether it's way down the road, there will be conflict with civil government. Another passage which is helpful. Spun the chatter forty seven first one here. Got Us very unusual figure he compares Babylon to a virgin. Now you would maybe ask yourself, why would God take this mighty this powerful, this great nation and compare this nation to virgin while the answers already been given he was saying you have such power there's no nation that can come and ravished you. There's no nation that can come and take you. There's no nation that can come against you and successfully destroyed you at least until I'm ready to change things. Now, if there were a nation on earth today, the had the kind of power that we're talking about from those Old Testament texts. Babylon. You can cage the lion like an ravaged virgin like the battle axe all illustrations that we've look if a nation had that kind of power today, how do you think Christians would fear? I don't want to be critical. But I do want to the honest and thoughtful about the present time. After Kobe nineteen hit. And some weeks passed. I had the chance to get a lot of feedback from one different congregations. And it saddens me and I will even go so far as to say it shocked me. To see that there were some congregations especially in the US almost wilted. They almost wilted. With what has happened with coca nineteen. It seems that there are some congregations that are more fearful of the virus. Christians are more fearful than on Christians. and. That's not right. We have not as we think about hoping nineteen seen millions and millions of people. Now, I'm not discount the seriousness of cove nineteen. I might get it and I might need to be hospitalized. I do recognize that it has ended some wives. But let me also say this. If a virus. Even deadly virus. Is enough to almost shut down some congregations. What do we think would happen to God's people in this country and throughout the world if we faced a problem why babbling? As the coming weeks and years perhaps decades come we might find covert nineteen was just a warm. Oh We might find that this was just a warning shot over the bow for God's people maybe even act of mercy by God to say I'm GonNa let you see. Something that should prepare you for something that's far worse. There may be a future generations. Look back on this and say you had nothing. What you experienced was insignificant to what we're going through. A few days ago I was working on this material received a message from a woman in Canada. Remember the church weighed in never been married small congregation. She spends a lot of her time. She's able to pick up a lot of Baba correspondence courses and every once in a while not too often this lady gets dumped when she gets dumped, she reaches out to me and says, I, like some help with this. Well, she got stumped. She said that she received a Baba course lesson. And the student wanted to know about the new world order. What does the Bible say about the New World Order? Well, she'd searched and the August turn to Brad and see what he has to say. I gave her three parts. The first part of my answer came from Chapter Twenty, four, hundred, thirty, seven, Jesus. There was he's talking about the end of time said it's going to be. Very similar to the time of Noah. To bottle expert to know what the time of Noah was likely as we turn back to the Old Testament and look in those early chapters of Genesis we find that very few people were interested in following God by and large sin was swallowing up the world people were using their free will to do whatever they wanted and a lot of what was being done was very bad. Jesus said when I return at the end of time that same kind of state is going to exist. After that, I wanted her to chapter eighteen in verse eight. Ill chapter eighteen in verse eight Jesus asked a question. He said when I come back at the end of time. He said, well, I find the fate on her. Now. You may not have the the definite article in your English translation, but it is in the original text. Jesus was asking if he was going to find the fade the system that he has given what I sometimes referred to as New Testament Christianity. Now. Matthew Chapter Twenty. Seven Jesus says very few people are going to be truly faithful. He indicates that a second time chapter eighteen in. In a slightly different way, but he's asking things are going to be so bad. Even be able to find the faith on earth, and then for the third passage, I gave a revelation chapter twenty in verse nine. That passage might seem to be in the least obvious to us but in revelation twenty, nine John Talks about the time. And the world is pictured as being completely arrayed against the children of God. It looks like dots people are going to be swallowed up. It looks like there is no hope it looks like the church is going to be wiped off the face of the earth and then Johnson says the end of time comes. John talked about the camp of the saints. The word camp of course would indicate just like Matthew Twenty, four, thirty, seven and Luke chapter eighteen adversity that at the time, there will be a very small number of people who are regarded as the people have got. Some. Says you're trying to predict when the is gonNA come no we cannot do that. The Bible's very emphatic on that point the buffalo does give some insight as far as the conditions that will prevail when the time comes. Now, I say on that to say this does the idea. Of A new world order fit with those three passages. Yes, it would. However, having said that could time in without some type of new world order while the answer to that question is also, yes we don't know exactly how things are going to be structured. I do know that, and this is why we're dealing with Babylon tonight I. Do know that there is some fascinating information in revelation seventeen and eighteen when it comes to Babylon. John's spoke level revelation chapter seventeen and for spot and after talked. About, Abilene. He said in verse six. Of Revelation, Chapter Sixteen, he talked about the blood of the saints this force this power was significant enough forceful enough to end the lines, some people, and as we voted that image withdraw from, you'll testament that Babylon was a horrific nation. It was an ungodly evil nation that God used to carry out his will our world can go in a lot of different directions in the future and a lot of people are wondering was going to be this way we're going to be this way. Many expect things to get a lot worse many expecting to get a lot worse and that is certainly possible but it's also possible that things will change for the better one day. We might see or children or grandchildren might see a one world government that would not be inconsistent with the Bible that we see. But whatever happens whatever happens. If always going to be true that God is going to be like that glass floor. We don't have to have a one world government for God. To say to people I'm going to continue to refine you I'm going to continue to reform you. I'm willing to continue to conform you to the image of my son whatever the world is like. God is still going to be in that business. He wants us to be conformed to the image of Sun. If we're not willing to do that, we're not going to be fit for Heaven Oh ever going to be perfect. No are some won't be better conformed in this lack to the image of the Sun than others. Yes. But can all be on the road to being conformed they meet your Jesus Christ. Yes and that's why the bobby uses words like come. The doors opened all. Tonight. If someone who is trying to conform our image to Jesus Christ know. That even harder times might come. And if those hard times come cling to faith even harder. If, you've not yet come to the glass. War. Tonight you can. You can admit your faith. You can say I'm ready to be molded and shaped. That's repentance. I. Confess that you are the Lord of Heaven and earth. And I'm ready to be put on the two. I'm ready to be left Tyson to Christ. Take those steps and submit to God and life gets very interesting. Tonight. If we can help you become a Christian, strengthen you as a Christian or Jew in another way, we let us know what the need is. Sing this. Olympic Song.

The Spirit of Babylon

"The following program is sponsored by the National Prayer Chapel Sued Simon. So foolishly one broadly. He's tending Jesus call and the boats drift away and all that he owes again more than he and found that his pride was soon digging away or two mad agreed on. We fine really. That was fine for taking the tax impressing people to hearing. He responded ally so he decreed in his heart was no longer than do the free from the things really every needs to be set free from the session that bullet so titled Three Nothing Fat. The power to do what's right with. Jesus only giving me comes out. We can imagine freedom. We saw from the things we need. Sure of the world worshiping we possess. Jesus says Leo you're treasures us. Love God above the rest. Riyobi do the three the due to freedom we Welcome to Pilgrim's progress. I'm Ray Greenlee from the National Prayer Chapel. I'm glad you've joined me today. We're going to talk about. Babylon Babylon has not yet fallen. But we are watching as America transitions into the full woman beast power we need to talk about that spirit of Babylon and identify very clearly to identify the spirit of Babylon. We have to go back to word all began now as we do that. Let's pray for understanding. Lord I come asking for very clear understanding for each person listening and for myself regarding this Babylon power this Babylon Spirit Lord. We're in such trouble. America is dying as we have known it and it will never be the same again. Lord we are watching. His America is deliberately being put to death to rise in the fullness babblings power Lord. Have mercy upon us. Show US HOW TO STAND. Jesus by faith in your mighty power in your mighty presence Lord God show us how to stand where to hide what to do where to go. Thank you Lord. I pray your mighty name Amen. Will Babylon began as Cain and Abel when out into the countryside and Cain killed Abel? Well no we have to go back even before that don't we? It's as Adam and Eve stand in front of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the serpent comes who was always in league with Babylon. He sows the spirit of babbling into the hearts of men and women and boys and girls. He told them. God doesn't really mean you'll die. He's jealous of you. He doesn't want you to become like him. He doesn't want you to know both good and evil. No God did not want us to know evil because it would only bring pain and confusion and degradation put Adam and Eve took their bite of that fruit and said we're going to go with the tree of knowledge of good and evil. We're going to go with the tree that sets us free not knowing that it would put them into little bondage. The first sign of that bondage is. They know they're naked. And that sows confusion and fear in their hearts and then when God comes walking in the cool of the day to fellowship with them. They're hiding in the bushes. Babylon is about confusion and hiding and dishonesty and grabbing what I can grab for myself. That is the spirit of Basilan. It involves murder mayhem violence. Why is it that almost and I almost because I'm trying to be kind? I don't know of any movie today. That does not have violence in some way even Christian movies. There's heartbreak tears. Evil and much of it is about okay. How do we overcome and much of the time? That evil is overcome. If it is in the spirit of Babylon by becoming a mighty person. The Romans new that they had to somehow break the wickedness of Rome. They knew they had to somehow get Rome under control because everyone was just doing every wicked thing they wanted to do in society was breaking down so stoicism stoicism emerged as a philosophy of inner strength of inner discipline to begin to be responsible for my own actions and my own thoughts. It was a pagan approach. It was a humanistic approach and it failed but they were on the right track. Inner strength responsibility all of these were cast out and Kane is forced to flee for his life before God and he goes to the land of nod east of Eden. Gnawed Maine's a place of wandering east of Eden in the Hebrew means a place of new beginnings so Cain has now fled from the presence of God he's been cursed by God. The spirit of Babylon now flees to a place where you're always starting over. You're always wandering now. You know that that's not going to be pleasant to the human heart and so caine begins building a city. He can't raise crops anymore. Goddess cursed the ground for him that he cannot even be a farmer. He doesn't WanNa be a shepherd that's what his brother was. So he becomes an entrepreneur. He becomes a businessman. He tries to create a city where he can be secure because now they've been cast out of their home the garden of Eden. They don't know where home is they have to create home some way but now cain in murdering his brother has broken the family relationship. He's distanced himself from his mother and his father and his other brothers and sisters. He is isolated and he finds a few people to go with him and he starts building a city a city of rebellion. Now things become worse and work worse and finally got says I'm going to destroy the whole earth I'm grieved it has become a habitation of multiplied canes lemon took two wives murder was in his heart so he brings the flood now after the flood. We find the table of Nations in Genesis the tenth chapter and pardon me. I'm going through this very quickly because I have someplace I need to go but I need to give you this underlying background so that you'll understand what it is. I'm saying later in this broadcast in the table of nations. We find the sons of Ham. The evil seed progresses through Kush and into Nimrod Nimrod is called in the tenth chapter of Genesis. The Eighth Verse. Kush was the father of Nimrod who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. So here's a man who is a powerful warrior. He is evil. He is an utter rebellion against the God of Heaven. He's an utter rebellion against Sham. Who is carrying the Line of God? He's in total rebellion against Noah. He begins to bring such wickedness back into the Earth violence wholesale violence. He's a mighty hunter before the Lord which doesn't mean just hunting animals. He hunts men he set snares for men like Nimrod Mighty Hunter. We have these biblical references. But then we also have in the book of J. Shar and in the writings of Josephus much fuller descriptions of WHO Nimrod was from extra biblical sources but the first center of his kingdom was a place called. Babylon it is the fullness of the expression of the spirit of Babylon now he founds a number of different cities. I won't go into the names of those cities and the meaning of those names but just to quickly go through it. The description is that Nimrod is a man of confusion. Babylon means confusion bearable. The other cities bring other interesting tidbits to the description of WHO this man is. He is a worshiper of false gods. He will not worship or even acknowledged the God of Heaven the Creator. God He establishes instead his own God and from that God all kinds of wickedness flows. I could spend hours talking about this but I'm not going to go further. I WANNA go now. To the eleventh chapter of Genesis this is not about who and everything that that Nimrod did. This is about the spirit that he is bringing into the world he is releasing demonic forces who were bound by the flood. He is releasing them back into the world. And what I want you to know and I'm going to deal with in just a moment. America today has been releasing all manner of demonic entities and cooperating with those demonic entities in child trafficking and sexual cleanness in murder in corruption these demonic forces these occult forces are very much in cooperation with many of the leaders of our government and Europe's government the E. You let's go back to the eleventh chapter of Genesis. The whole world had one language. This is verse. One and a common speech as men moved eastward that is as man moved to a place of new beginnings they found a plane in Shinar that is Babylon and they settled there and they said to each other come. Let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly. They used brick instead of stone and tar for the mortar and then they said come. Let us build ourselves a city with a tower that reaches to the heavens in other words. We're going to pierce the very heavens and we are going to take charge. We are the power of the earth and we can even ascend into the heavens so that we make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth the Lord had said spread out repopulate the earth. They said No. We're not going to do that. We're going to build large cities we're going to congregate in one place and we're going to make a name for ourselves. We're going to be the ruler of the Earth. This is the spirit of Babylon making a name for yourself to not be subject to any one be in charge. The problem comes with the name babbling. It means confusion. Nimrod was a man of confusion and chaotic behavior. He was a man of violence. Nobody dared cross Nimrod extra biblical sources. Tell us that. Nimrod was finally executed by the righteous of the day by the descendants of Shem did his body was cut up into pieces and cast into the sea. The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building the Lord said if as one people speaking the same language. They've begun to do this. The nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come let us go down and confused their language so they will not understand each other. So the Lord's scattered them from from that place all over the earth and they stopped building the city that is why it is called bearable because the Lord confused the language of the whole world from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth. Now babbling is going to become a marker through all of the years of the history of the earth from this point forward. There has been confusion and chaotic behavior before this but it was not called babbling it was the confusion of Adam and Eve. It was the confusion and wickedness and violence of Kane as he killed Abel. It was the establishing of cities in opposition to the Lord God of Heaven and now we have a name for that ambition of the human heart the positive thinking one. Oh one of the human heart humanism we have a name now for ascendancy control violence its name as Babylon. It's a spirit that has now entered into the world through Nimrod and now other men are taking on that same spirit. Now you have in Genesis. The eleventh chapter the same the same identical chapter you now begin to hear about a man by the name of Abram you have Nimrod and Abram or Abraham contrasting one against the other the Lord Calls Abram out of one of Nimrod Cities Horon he is called out of of the Caldes Caldera's Babylonia God reveals himself and says go to the land. I'll show you an ongoing to establish a land. Leave your country. Your people your father's household go to the land. I will show you and I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you and I will make your name great and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you and all the people on Earth will be blessed through you. So Abraham or Abram left as the Lord told him and you know the story of Abraham now there is a city finally that will come to the forefront as Abraham goes to war to defend his nephew lot to take him back from an enemy Kizza. Dick the king of Salem comes forth to bless Abraham and Abraham gives him a tenth of everything he has he paid ties to. Milk has a Dick now. Who is milk has a Dick? I don't know he could have been sham but with the description. I suspect he was a pre incarnation. Jesus but I don't know and I can't say beyond what the Scripture say in the scriptures. Don't tell us but what I want you to note is that he came from Salem that would be named Jerusalem. And we're going to see through all of the rest of the scriptures the city of Peace Salem the city of Jerusalem as David came and established it as the headquarters of the nation of Israel so God is calling forth his people and his city. It is now going to be on one side Babylon and on the other side. It's going to be Jerusalem and these two cities will be at constant odds one with another now. The city of Babylon was for hundreds of years. The most powerful city in the world Persian Caldeans and against it this small city of Jerusalem. Now I WANNA take you into revelation and I wanna read for you revelation. Fourteen where we are again referring to three angels messages. The first message I saw another angel flying in the midst of the air this revelation fourteen six and he had the journal Gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth to every nation tribe language and people he said in a loud voice fear God and give him glory because the hour of his judgement has come worship him. Who made the heavens? The earth the sea and the springs of Water Nimrod refused to worship him. Who made the heavens the earth the sea and the springs of Water Babylon always stands in opposition to the Lord God of Heaven and now the first angel is proclaiming that the hour of his judgement has come. The Hour of God's judgment is here now. The covert nineteen that we see is a judgment upon the world for turning its back in support of Babylon confusion violence refusal to bow before the Lord. Jesus Christ the murder of innocent babies if you remember the story of Moses the children of Israel their in Faeroes land. What does farrow do through the Hebrew babies into the Nile river and let the crocodiles eat them put to death the babies now some years later as Moses comes and asks for the people to go free there refused and so what's the final judgment that God brings? He takes the life of the eldest of every child the eldest child every family the eldest animal the firstborn are slain on the night of Passover Angel. The Angel of death goes over. You might say pastor. That was unfair. Was It really? It was only giving back to them what they had done to the Hebrew babies. I WanNa tell you as we continue talking through the three angels messages. I want you to be very clear. God will not tolerate the murder of babies. He simply won't tolerate it. And he will bring the most severe judgments upon any man or any nation who murdered their babies. And so we face now in America and in China and in the World God's judgment because we have turned our back on the living God of Heaven even as Nimrod did we have turned our back against the most holy God of Heaven and we have treated him as though he were nothing. When he is the Almighty the all-powerful the hour of judge. Of God's judgement has come. It is here today. We are seeing the first unavoidable but powerful signs of God's Judgment. We have doubt drought in one place. We have too much rain water in another place. We have volcanoes. We have incredible numbers of earthquakes. We are going to see utter destruction on the West Coast at some point soon as the cold air is explode. We're in trouble. We're watching America right now. Be Put to death. In the America that will emerge out of this time of catastrophic loss will be different America. It will not be the America of the free and the brave. It will be a socialist form of government that will overlay America leading toward a one world government and the institution of the mark of the beast. This week will deal with those issues but I wanNA come back now. The second angel followed any said fallen. Fallen is Babylon the great which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adultery. Babylon has not yet fallen. But it is now in the process of falling. Now make no mistake. The America is doomed. I don't say that to make you afraid. I say that that you could understand that. We are in inbound on horrible horrific things. We have seen only the introduction so far it will become much worse and you need to be very clear. Are you worshipping with babbling? Are you filled with confusion and violence? Are you filled with a less for the world and the things of the flesh or you committed and sold out to Jesus Christ? I WanNa read for you. Several things there are two major beasts that we have spoken of I want to deal specifically with the beasts. That is spoken of in revelation. Thirteen eleven I saw another beast coming up out of the earth that is not coming out of peoples and nations but coming up out of the Earth United States is the only one that fits that description. He had two horns like a lamb but he spoke like a dragon the other words. This is a lamb like beast. But it's a lamb like beasts that's going to transform into a real dragon. He exercise all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast who's fatal wounded been healed and he performed great and miraculous signs even causing fire to come down from heaven to Earth in full view of men because of the signs. He was given power to do on behalf of the first beast. He deceived the inhabitants of the Earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast so that he could speak in 'cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. We're going to see a time of great persecution in America. When many of us will die because we are not going to receive the mark of the beast on our right hand or for hit says in verse seventeen no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark which is the name of the beast with a number of his name. Now when you get to chapter fourteen and I don't usually do very much teaching out of the book of revelation. I've read it time after time after time but it's been so misinterpreted it's been so twisted. I don't WanNa go beyond what it says. I'm giving you the very best of my understanding. From a lifetime of studying this book I looked in before and there before me was the lamb standing on Mount Zion and with him one hundred forty four thousand who had his name and his father's name written on their foreheads is describing the hundred and forty four thousand those saints taken from twelve thousand of each tribe of the Jewish nation the first fruits it spoken of in revelation seven and then comes the three angels flying in mid air and Babylon is now being referred to as fallen and I want you to note. Babylon is referred to in feminine tents. Now let's go over here to revelation seventeenth chapter. The Angel Carried Me Away Verse. Three in the spirit into a desert there. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet. Beast that was covered with blasphemous names. And this beast that it was sitting on had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and was glittering with gold precious stones and pearls. She held a Golden Cup in her hand filled with abominable things and the filth of her adultress. The title was written on her forehead. Mystery Babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and the abominations of the Earth. I saw the woman. She was drunk with the blood of the saints. The blood of those who bore the testimony of Jesus. Then you come to chipped eighteen. After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority and the Earth was illuminated by his splendor and with a mighty voice. He shouted fallen. Babylon is fallen. Babylon the great. She has become a home for demons. And a haunt for every evil spirit. A haunt for every unclean detestable bird for all the nations have drunk the maddening wine for adultery. He's the kings of the earth committed adultery with her and the merchants of the Earth. Gu Rich from her excessive luxuries. Then I heard another voice from heaven. Say Come Out of her my people so that you will not share in her sins so that you will not receive any of her plagues for her sins are piled up to heaven and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she is given pay her back double for what she has done. Mixture a double portion from her own cup give her as much torture and grief as glory and luxury. She gave herself in her heart. She boasts I sit as a queen. I'm not a widow and I will never mourn therefore one day. Her plagues will overtake her death. Morning and famine she will be consumed by fire for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. I believe that this is a description of the United States of America at the very end when she has utterly metamorphised from that lamb like beast into a dragon and the warning comes. Come out of her my people so that you will not share in her sins saying very clearly there has to be coming out of battling there has to be coming out of all that is of darkness all that is of wickedness. When read you a passage of scripture in I joined the fifth chapter everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well and this is how we know that we love the children of God by loving God and carrying out his commands? This is love for God obey his commands his commands are not burdensome for everyone born of. God overcomes the world many today who are Christians. Pastors teachers are saying you cannot overcome the world. The blood of Jesus does not have the power to cause you to overcome the world. I WanNa tell you. They're lying the scriptures. Say This is love for God to obey his commands. So don't tell me. You cannot obey the commands of God. His commands are not burdensome for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world. Even our faith who is it overcomes the world only he who believes that Jesus is the son of God not the spirit. Not The spirit of confusion that says will you know? Do your best. But that's all you can do. No we are here for total victory in the blood of Jesus and Glorious Joy and rejoicing as we separate ourselves from the wickedness of our age the wickedness of our day the Nimrod spirit the Babylon spirit of confusion and uncertainty and lack of love conflict. Violence we aren't called to participate in that or to sit in front of the television and watch it or to sit in front of the television and watch violent football game. That's not what we're called to that is. Nimrod that his Babylonia spirit notice verse. Eleven this is first John Five Versi Levin and this is testimony God has given us eternal life and this life is in his son he has the son has life he who does not have the son of God does not have life. I write these things to you. Who believe in the name of the son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears US whatever we ask. We know that we have what we've asked him verse eighteen. We know that anybody born of God does not continue to sin. The one who is born of God keeps him safe and the evil one cannot harm him. If you believe in the sending Christian you believe in Babylon and you are participant in Babylon and in the end you will be cast out with Nimrod and all that is a babbling and babbling will be cast down and burned. We know that the scriptures teach that America will burned. We know that as Christians. We are called out of walking in any of the wickedness of this world it requires understanding of what the Babylon Spirit is now. Babbling has not fallen yet but very soon the announcement will be made. I don't know if it'll be a year. Two years three five six. The announcement will be made babbling has fallen and America will be done and we are now going to watch as America transforms itself from that lamb like beast into a dragon and in many ways. America has already become a dragon. Ask The people of Iraq or ask the people of Libya or ask many of the nations that we have said we can take them down. We can change their government the nations that we have forced to adhere to our dollar the petro dollar because we have the worships and the guns. And so we've held many in the world hostage to our system as we have lived in unbelievable luxury on the world that's coming to a screeching halt. You're going to see a reset of finances as the Fiat currency is no longer of any value. You will see a digital currency be introduced and the financial reset will take place and going along with that digital currency. Could I put it simply this way? Digital currency will be issued to your count but who you work for. It will be what you used to buy your food. It will be used instead of cash but digital is not currency its credit at the company store. It's called slavery we are being brought in America into total enslavement and they are bringing us into that enslavement through the corona virus and through the bursting of the debt bubble and the destruction of our currency. As we know it today we are watching. His every unclean thing rises up in America every vile perversion. The murder of children the sex trafficking that is approved by the highest levels of government and controlled and participated in by many of the top leaders of our nation. I am deeply grieved by this and I constantly crying out to God for the deliverance of his children. Both the unborn and the children offered as human sacrifices. In these wicked occult places like Epsteins Island were dealing with such wickedness now chapter thirteen of Luke. There were some president at that time. Who told Jesus about the gala liens whose blood pilot had mixed with their sacrifices? And Jesus answered. Do you think that these Galilea were worse? Sinners than all the other Galileo's because they suffered this way I tell you know but unless you repent you too will all perish of those eighteen who died when the tower of Sologne fell on them. Do you think they were more guilty than all the others living Jerusalem? I tell you know but unless you repent you too will all perish. He told him this parable. A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard and he went to look for fruit on it. He didn't find any so he said to the man who took care of the vineyard for three years. Now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any cut it down why should it us up the soil sir. The man replied leave it alone for one more year and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year fine if not then cut it down. I believe were in that time not necessarily one year but were that time when the Lord has said look I'm not getting the fruit of righteousness out of my people and he's coming very close to sing. Just cut it down. Cut The American church down. I'm crying out to the Lord and sing. Oh God please don't cut American church down but instead please come and call it to repent Sin Your Spirit Almighty God to turn the heart of American Christians and Pagans Unto Righteousness. Now is the time to come out of Babylon while you still have the ability to come out. Once you receive the mark of the beast you will not be able to come out. You will be sealed as a servant of Nimrod of the devil. The spirit of Babylon is riding roughshod over America today. In some places the government is now even telling you like in Vermont. What you can and cannot buy Walmart will not let you buy vegetable seeds because they say the government is told them that's not essential. You mean food is not essential. You can't plant your own garden. Oh do you see where we're headed? We're going into a control grid and you're going to have to make a decision about whether you will accept that mark some pastors are saying. Oh you can accept the mark. You can't lose your salvation so go ahead and do whatever you have to survive all you'll lose or maybe some rewards in heaven that's not with descriptions say. We're GONNA talk about that this week. Oh my brother my sister. Today's the day to repent and utterly divorce yourself from the spirit of Babylon Almighty Jesus. I plead your mercy today over America. I plead for the church. I plead that Old Lord before. It's too late before were sewn into this grid of wickedness that you will cause Christians across this land a wakeup and rise up and say I must repent. I must deal with my sin. It is not acceptable before the Holy God of Heaven. Lord Jesus You provided everything. We need a stand by faith now for revival in America in the name of Jesus Amen. We're out of time for today's broadcast. Please write to me the National Prayer Chapel Post Office box. Twenty three forty six Woodbridge Virginia to one nine five. This is a faith ministry. I'm encouraging those of you. Who made pledges please step forward and make those pledges good? Were still five hundred short on the pledges by faith.

I want you to cast out everything of confusion and a babbling the world the flesh and the devil. You can contact me by going to national prayer Chapel Dot Com. God bless you brother and sister.

There are many podcast features that are supporting in this in future podcasts for uteri in your personal time. If you would like to write these down I encourage the to do so the scriptures are as follows Ezekiel Chapter Twenty Eight Fifteen Sixteen Eighteen Matthew chapter four verses Nine Mar Chapter a first thirty six deuteronomy chapter eight verses ten First Timothy Chapter Six I ten patients chapter six verse twelve in revelation chapters seventeen and eighteen and also chapter thirteen verses eight and this new world is setting up for the emergence and entrance of the Anti Christ who were forced small and great rich and poor Rian translate to accept his mark of the beast that will ran more mission to buy and sell in his marketplace and those who have already bought into to the current health and will gospel aren't members of the apostate churches are ushering in the antichrist's religious plan for the new world in order to worship him by selling their soul for the mark of the piece that is to come in the future. Babylonia is the Anti Christ control troll system that will achieve its domination of the world that God revealed his rich through the building the tower that was built by commonality announcing the new World Warner more one world government will be common politics common economics common world-market World Common Government just as God came down to see what the tower that the people were building in the Old Testament Babylon in pronounced judgement on the and their tower we corrine judgment in one day against the con- Babylonians system why does prosper although the earth everything in it belongs to the Lord it is clear that God is not the author of the current world mortar she came to bring life but Satan Canes and kill steal and destroy which is the characteristic organ decatur of the new world or the Greek word for world is hospitals that means the system or arrangement that is on the when Adam and eve fell into sent they surrendered their don't dominion to Satan and he began building his unrighteous political economic and religious cosmos as an example sayings of authority or limited take over the world system came during the third temptation of Christ in the Wilderness when Satan offered mystery Babylon to Jesus if he would only bow down and worship Him Matthew Chapter Four Verses Nine through eleven no Bet Jesus did not refute Satan's authority to offer mystery Babylon and and even confirmed saying as the ruler of the world the Kingdom of this world is not fully become the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ until the mystery of God nine is fit and his rap is poured out the Apostle Paul still refers to Satan as gone little of this World Second Corinthians chapter four four uh even after Jesus rose from the dead with Mall Power and authority it is not that Jesus does not have sovereign authority oversight but the Jesus has given Satan Authority. According to build mystery Babylon until the day of the wrath of the Lord even though there are exceptions of God's periodic sovereign interventions Satan Dayton has the authority to use the world system to prosper and promote who will serve king. David says that this is something God's people people must understand we are going to stop reading over material possessions and say no love of Money Psalms thirty seven <music> seven through thirteen says do not because of him prosper in his way because of the man who carries out Wittgenstein's for the evil doers shelby cut madoff wait for the lord and they will narrate the land yet a little while and the wind man will be and you will look carefully for his place in he will not be there the wicked plots against the righteous and GNASHING team at him. The Lord laughs at him for he seeing his day is coming. That's why it is not to compare godly against ungodly prosperity. Some people say in the drug dealer can prosper. Why can't God's people prosper prosper? That's like comparing apples to oranges they do not mix measurement of prosperity is different from God's measurement of prosperity to different views that oppose who's each statements view is based on the temporary which is passing away and God's view is based on the eternal that is everlasting and example is the parable of the rich in the book of Luke this rich Man yielded and of funding harvest and thought to himself what shall I do. I have no place to store microns then he said I will tear down my barnes and bill bigger bars where I will store my surplus and I will say to myself you have plenty of rain made up for many years. Take life easy drink remarried. God said to him you Um this very night. Your soul rewired then home. We'll those things when you have provided as he lay dresser for himself and is not rich to work up my God do not worry about why the wicked prosper but come away from the ways of the world also that you are not destroyed on the day when God judges the love of money it every man now we will talk about Babylon which means gate of God little was one of the cities of an action kingdom established by Nimrod the son of push from the bloodline of ham them he was Noah's rain grandson from the table of nations. He was a mighty warrior and hunter a skill and ambitious leader after the rain flood early in mankind's history. The Tower Amount Mammal meaning to confuse was a common structure in Babylonia which was three hundred feet tall aw and three hundred feet wide and wasn't a focal point of the city. The people build the tower as a monument of their own greatness for the whole world to see a great human achievement and wonder of the world a monument to the themselves rather than to the scriptures say the Lord Judge People we'll by confounding their language that resulted in the tower being left unfinished. This incident contributes to a long history of Babylon as a center then journal of religious significance and as a source of false and pagan religion and rebellion against the true guy for years before and after. After Babylon rose to power God spoke through prophets like Isaiah Jeremiah Ezekiel Ed manual to unfold God's plan for the sanctions most of their promises relating to Babylon concerns the ultimate in of captivity for Israel in addition to the future sure destruction of Babylon during king they'll she SARS alcohol drinking and celebration.

The once Fertile Crescent is now awaiting and even though the fall of Avalon was the end of the Babylonian political the Babylonian Culture boss and religions tins and ideologies were continuing in the kingdom's Babylonian influence was perpetuated down through the centuries Babylon align the symbol of religious confusion of here again in the apostate church revelation chapter seventeen today Babylon was a a symbol of sin and rebellion a reputation of defiance then represented rejection of the one true God and say is the email and power power and influence behind Bologna Satan is the god of this world one must read and study the origin of Satan and how he is fall and the a fall of humanity occuren- and how long of those things together bring about the new world order which is ultimately the worship of Satan that derives from his obsession and insanity to be light.

Lines and different boundary cultural boundary Andris lines and And they like civil discourse yeah even if we completely disagree on many things almost everything we we still like having those kinds of people on our podcast and sometimes those people that you make out with all the time once in a while once oil that ever the case with one person except today that's right because today we have our wives Valentine's Day special wives. You may speak. Hello Babylon be listeners. High that's Shandor. Introduce our wives shouldn't he. I love it. We allowed them to speak. If you have any questions on the Babylon be podcast.

It's actually my and destiny's wedding getting anniversary and happens to be my an Jessica's first date anniversary go on yeah I guess our first date. It was around February something so we were doing. We were in the awkward texting face. This is awkward texting. Yeah that's so much cooler than a wedding anniversary or we were just like full in paragraph texting off the Bat. We're going to tell our stories his later in the show I want to do our weekly stories. Yeah every week there are stories. These are some of them. You know I forgot to mention. We're doing the Babylon be best of coffee table book. I saw the notes right there. Oh yeah and it's pre-order it you can pre-order now. It's not out yet yeah just understand. It's not out for a while and it says preorder that means before order. You're like the person getting in line per star wars movie like months before it comes out. Yeah a lot of camping gear. Most people are mocking you. Yeah you're camping out outside the Babylon be online wine store and it will probably probably be out in the middle of this year but we don't have a firm date so yeah early summer issues were aiming for but who knows who knows nobody. God knows. And that's all that matters all right and now story one Kyle you speak. You cannot literally wrap your head around something you would get hurt. That's a good point surly smart very smart point that she did she try that did she want did she try to. I didn't read this. She yeah she demonstrated that you can't get confusing so we had a writers meeting yesterday and we were discussing how to attack this. AFC because because yeah we'll see it had this beautiful beautiful comment section. Thank you about bringing up the poverty draft and this idea of a bootstrap this idea and this metaphor of a bootstrap started off as a joke. Because it's a physical impossibility to lift yourself golf up by a bootstrap by your shoelaces. It's physically impossible. The whole thing is a joke. Speaks for itself mic drop. I just love that. She specifically mentioned shoelaces right after. You did that article about the shooter. Yeah that was the thing. We were all laughing so hard because we did that stupid. Our coach we already explained the joke. Maybe a two podcasts. In a row we talking. Yeah but You know the joke being anyway. I don't want to say it again but explain it. The third time wrangler sell their shoelaces. 'cause the articles so stupid actually playing Super Meta joke but anyway and then she said it's just an awesome that we write the absolute most over the top thing we can think of and the chief of fills it and it's just absolutely wonderful curious. where the etymology of lifting yourself up by your bootstraps? Like where does that come. It was the actual. I had heard that before that well. The point is that you can't you can't but you know any any idiom breaks down when you think about it. Yeah well yeah. We try to list off the other day wrapping your head around. Something was the best one. So let's get our wives opinions on destiny. What are what are your thoughts on? You may speak she represents all your interests now now my interest. This is nice because now that the women are attacking US see. Yeah it safer. It's no longer problematic that we're just a bunch of white males laughing about a brave woman of color except for it feels like we're commanding them to speak to. We are well. I personally get all my news from from the Babylon be because I know that it's it's real. It's serious anything I've ever learned about. AFC has been from the Babylon so in the Babylon beat. Tells me she's dumb. I'm like she's dumb. Just go deer. She's is like CNN on my turn like here's your news. Here's here's the news. You're allowed to watch a very well informed and intelligent wife Ethan. I'm like Kim Jong Il of the House. I have one new source. I love her uh-huh to see and then also when I speak I have a voice actor speak for me. The deeper booming voice. And there's all these myths about you that have evolved over the years sing songs about blowing missiles and my enemies one time dead wrestled a bear and killed it like this. Aw is like a song about it if the marching in with their guns the the Nicole Hassle Muscle doesn't interesting. It's wild you guys coats family. I have one compliment for ABC I really liked the way she does her makeup. But that's where it ends. She's eight people that call her ugly honest. Are you serious of all the people that are on TV for politics. She's one of the more attractive people. At least she's not ugly. Yeah but you know there's more to life we there's the saying so it's such a below the belt thing they drowsy gave her like a unit brown or teeth. Sticking out all snuggling Yes so you know denier Libertarians. And so we read a lot of like well. I smoke a lot and every day just getting other every other there are some really funny conspiracy. Theories about you see in one is that she is just like a stage actress that like memorize lines and stuff and I could totally see except that she like messes them up in her. Do that stuff again guy off stage with the script you skip. It belongs to the script Desi. What are your thoughts on? ABC's makeup. I do like her makeup. I think that whoever does it as a a very good job I do make too so she's looking for. Somebody knew I could do that or her hair. I do her hair as well. She has nice air. Yes this is. The commentary that matters just trots on. ABC's makeup. I have no comment. No Okay I just want to say that. You can't judge Roger put by its cover. That's idiot wait a minute. That's all you can get your book by. That's exactly if you look in a book you have to judge it by its cover. The whole the thing is a joke it all falls apart in. You can't have your cake and eat it too ethan. Kyle confuses me so much I know frank was Tommy. You flip it around and make sense of it and subsequently have can't be like hey I want to see this cake I got eight it. That's a good point missing seeing the forest for the trees and you may even be throwing out the baby with the bathwater. There's no forest within ten miles of here so I don't know what you're timing uh-huh desert form. Yeah we're missing. The forest is literally trees. I don't know how the desert for the missing of the buildings buildings for the desert for the sand the beach for the granules ocean all right. We took that one far enough. You No. It's the weirdest thing to me about this. I know at least for us being on the podcast here is like a total around like using my life is the way more talkative one of the two of us and now it's totally around really weird. This is very problematic with the three guys. That are on the mics. And we're just keeps nudging edging his mic in my direction. I'll keep taking away from me extremely problem. We gotta get way more expensive. Maybe when we get to one of these stories that that you guys will have some strong opinions on we can just back off and just put it in the air if you want to speak just just like in the Nicole House Speaker Rolling panics if you WANNA speak. That's what the wives have to do in Nicole Hassle permission. Move onto a second store. I have no idea how to say the Disney. Can you read the story. I don't know how to pronounce is again. Carney for tests introduces the Biden collection. I was good very convincing. How you pronounce it Garni Garni? So how is Brooke Teas. So is that a good brand destiny can you. Can you give us some advice on shampoos. That are good for our hair. My wife is a stylus Well it really depends on what kind of hair you have so if you have a lot of very dry dry hair you have course here. I like Basu products and while products or pursue products surface. Basu things like that. But this this Garnier and Pantene and Suave don't use it. This episode is brought to you by desert with Zero Salon. If you're in the southern California area you want but you hair down. I wonder if there's lawns in the area where you can get your hair done and then someone behind you just smells your hair for like a shoulder rub the by the whole my old man size they smell this. Oh this is what Joe Biden has been doing at these events posed like a little girl up or like someone like put his hand on their shoulder behind him and he'll do like this and you're like what are you doing. He lifts their hair with his nose. Kind of like a dog lifts your hand to be petted. And he likes Kinda SORTA Sniffen. You've made me this little kids do. It's a weird so I don't even like shampoo. I always accidentally I use the conditioner or whatever. Is there hand soap. I'm good with that. Hence the shower. It's whatever's around and grab I shampoo and conditioner use it all over my body. The loss of a job I on Rag I create my own two in one for for men. I don't know if anyone's done joke about this. But for men they should have just like a fifty two and one everything in one like shipping dream deodorant deodorant paste motor oil. Oh absolutely every possible thing that you can eat. So I'm I'm curious. How many bottles of shampoo you are in all of our homes and I'm sure like one of the man and then probably the rest are not so? I'm curious how many total the offending not trying to cut her finger in the air on five people in our family with all different types of hair. So there's different types. Then there's there's so my oldest son Amit has very very very curly hair and it gets dry super fast so I have amused curling moisturizer. You know shampoo conditioner. Samuel has very straight hair but he has a lot of hair. It's very full. So he has and Calvin has a lot very fine hair so he has different and then load. So how many frigging Sham. I Apologize. We have the five bottles of shampoo and five conditioners one for each of our air types for each person has five for each one twenty five bucks. Each person has one shampoo and conditioner. But isn't that kind of spread out between two showers because like my shower. I have just my stuff in in there and then the kids bathroom. There's like fourteen different. Half used their bathrooms just like a disaster thirteen year. Old Girl too to so she is half the hair care products wells easily. They they switch them so sometimes like I want to take a shower and mom shower because it has better pressure and so a lot of there is an ours actually. I'll admit at times I have seen my caught a glance of like one of the names of Jessica Shampoos and it's like roasted toasted vanilla almond coconut and it sounds so good. I want drink. It just put all saw all use it sniffing and like every once in a while I just I just squeeze a little squeeze in the male version of that as like head and shoulders shoulder charcoal. I pretty much use head and shoulders. If I don't use it I just looked like I. I don't know like winter like Father Christmas. So do you guys find. Why did you and Joe Biden creepy? Are we leading. The witness asked that question. How do you feel about Joe Biden? Loaded how creepy do you find. Joe By one to Joe Biden. Asking how creepy is nine and a half to Babylon has told me that Joe Biden is creepy. Therefore he is creepy i. She's a very good way. The I didn't really know anything about it until probably the last year when Kyle started showing me all these pictures as of him and Mike. Wow don't come around my kids but yes I feel like. He's very creepy and southern when somebody's like he's not creepy. I just pull up a picture. Who really does not creepy? And I think he's creepy now. Well he also very strangely recently a camera they were the context and you give the context of this very strange clip. We have. It's just it's just him saying. So it's after the Iowa Caucus and Joe Biden is in New Hampshire talking to a crowd for Hammer Emma Rally for him and a lady stands up. I assume WHAT'S THE LADY I. I guess I shouldn't assume. But she stands up with the microphones time talk and she asked him like well. If you're going to be if you've been the vice president you've already been in the White House if you can't pull higher or do you hire an Iowa. How're you supposed to win against Donald Trump and he gets very very defensive about it and he basically says like have you ever been to a caucus and she's like yeah I have and she's like oh you're lying so I called her very interesting name so just to be clear that you lying doug? You're you lying dog faced pony soldier. Yeah I guess I read online. He's quoting like John Wayne movie from one hundred years ago people said Malarkey Yeah Malarkey is yeah maybe the. Maybe that was the film. I don't know what would the John Wayne Malarkey. Movie being like Malarkey in the old West or something yeah. Malarkey and Arkansas's didn't he also recently kiss granddaughter on the lips and they're really awkward. It looks like it's like family. I'm a little okay. You guys have your tradition. That's fine but it's the old fashioned but when it's him and you're like like like he has to have aids and stuff that are around him going. Hey you gotta gotTa Watch. No no no no take this point. There's got to have AIDS by now. He has to have staffers. I how about that. Is that a disease. Have staffers around him. That are going like staphylococcus going like you you know. Hey Joe cool it with the girls at the you know you got to have people that are like just be real careful you know I know I know you're your friendly guy and you like to you know. Put Your hands on girls shoulders or you know you just like you know you got that personal affection or whatever that's fine but just watch it you know but no. He's just it just barrels right through and they're like you know he's reached that point of being an old man where he just doesn't care what I'm GonNa do. I think George Bush senior here he had that thing he said to the lady meant it was I think. He said he was doctor. Doctor I I can't remember I lost it. Just don't turn next story in. Forget that I. It didn't end that sentence. You WanNa read one dear. You must be speak story. Three women advertising five different. MLM's on back of minivan must be extremely rich comma a successful Siri Reading Kama successful the essence of the the headline yes. I'm reading it on the PODCAST and rich antics. Because it's like the head so I actually saw a woman exactly like this and I've photoshop the van to be exactly what I saw I. There was a woman driving. Had like cincy young living herbalife all that. I'm just like Geez. Like how many of these can you possibly do. And how you keep up with all of them we got a lot of. MLM's and our families who had to be carefully say publicly Yeah do you guys like him. What do you think about? MLM's do you like it. Hard heading question. Yeah there my my sister and my best friend and my mom are big. MLM or so. I don't think you can. You can just go off. There's they go off load. They are they rich. Say they work a lot of hours. Do you have any thoughts on. MLM's just you know the the pyramid. You know what I don't need 'em slain it. Can I man spleen into you. Tie personally wouldn't Do in Milan. But I do like some of the things things that they sell. I like some of the products and the Tara things yes see see is i. I agree see I do so I you. To as a lot of essential oils mu two in fact some of the essential oil pictures that are in the Babylon be stuff that kyle buried in the ground. But I don't really we have the energy to go out there and do something like that but I do enjoy things article oils found or something she wakes up and she's like she'd text me at work and she's like why does my essential oils case. Have all this BERTA. I had to bury it King. David's for work dear so I do I do purchase things from there. I just don't sell the step so I don't necessarily have to agree with you on your timing and as a nurse so some of the health related stuff is the sciences. A little shaky. I'm going to just put that out there. I don't think is GonNa like cure cancer. I'll bet you'll be like an alternative on. This woman who uses over three hundred essential oils probably immortal. Well I remember somebody told. I don't know if I should say somebody told your mom like Oh this will heal your you know your spine. And she's like no. It's okay but your mom enjoys dotes era. I'm like an MLM's neighbor. Don't ask me fans so uh-huh I have a lot of autoimmune issues and Alabama. So I just get super annoyed when people prison things that our biggest biggest like us these essential oils for your asthma. And I'm like actually that makes it a million times worse like note and it's not just the central oil. That's what I find is like I'm not gonNA name names but like the ones where you buy a bunch of powders and You know they're all the research that they're telling their consultants to preach is coming from the company. You know it's kind of like exactly people are like I don't need my diabetes medication anymore and I'm like I should talk to your doctor. Uh Or if a friend of mine who literally will promote that. Her prodecures peanut allergy's own which are known to be deadly and Oh take the product and then do a trial run on your child give them a senior not a bad idea. Bad bad idea. Well we finally found a topic that gets him going. Yeah I was wondering about like L. M. Culture like at churches. Because I see it from the outside where it's like every get together that the women will have at some churches like just a sales pitch those wondering what you have you ever been to like an initiation ceremony or anything. Where they're like join us? Yes Roy A and it is very annoying. Please stop invited me to those especially when they. You don't say it outright. Yeah show up and you think it's a gathering of like. What is this pamphlet? Ah Putting in my hands. Like wait us in duped by have literally been in situations like that was like after Church get together with the girls and then there's somebody somebody from which don't buy it. There are some new from Tara. Okay Sandy were fine. But it's like I I want to give it to me but just handed wind class. One thing. I was really excited about. I one offense he gets Ooh for me but I did not sign up. I just I don't like I don't like to be tricked. I don't like to be duped. I get very upset and things like that happened. Don't try to cure diabetes. Okay and and just keep your hands off my diabetes. It's my diabetes. I'm just kidding at type. One Diabetes Diabetes. Take the room down. Keep talking about it. It's it's a thing here. I think yeah experienced the male equivalent of the culture in church like we went to a new church down San Diego and we had some guy that was older guy. So I'm like Oh maybe this guy wants to disciple me. He wants to be my friend and so he's coming up to every Sunday talking starting conversation and Macau Man. He's real friendly and great. Hi Dan yeah like he's you know he's got a wife and kids and so it seemed like always gonna I'm GonNa show me how to get out and then like four four weeks into this. He's like So have you. Let's get together after church and have lunch or something. I'm like okay and then we had some come up. I had to cancel on him so then he started texting me. Like long-form Messages Ages. Like have you considered a your life insurance policy. You know Blah Blah Blah. Who Still? It was a long con. It was like he's a real man to crazy easy. Wow I don't know have had any. I had one friend go nuts about magnets and he was just one of those guys that he he was just. Yeah he's a guy that gets convinced by pop up the shows you WanNa gazillion dollars if you click there and he's calling died. I just one gosh. I had a guy that was obsessed with we'd have got old churches obsessed with plexus and like he ended up leaving the church in like just bailing. He was leading Bible Studies. Instead of just all of a sudden stop texting everybody just left and in like six months later he texts me and he's like hey we're going to have a barbecue At the house tonight nine you know and I'm like Oh maybe you know we'll be serving the pink G.. Yeah exactly exactly you. Don't it was like in. There will be a giveaway and I'm like a giveaway away at a barbecue. Powdered beverages justly probably tick tick me of. Oh it's a plexus thing in my own should have had jerry seven and I got I got you I'm good I got got my pink drink. It's abysmal on. Ice Shaken not stirred. So we just gotTa the Frank Church that has like genuine fellowship and not like the the long con going on. What's going on in the church? What's up with a Mike in San Diego? It happens a lot because like now. I'm Kinda scared too like I'm not trying to be mean to anybody but like like a lot of military spouses you know There has been gone and I feel like they. They want to contribute and try to do something like that. So I feel like I you see it a lot there. I haven't seen it as much up here. I think. Have you Kyle Som- but yet it wasn't. There was definitely we we were. We were kind of in a military community in the why the husbands and the wives wanted to feel you know they wanted to use useful and they wanted to feel like they were bringing in money too and so it was just it was like they were kind of the perfect audience for that kind of a sales pitch. You can earn money at home. It's like oh I can you know I think it comes from a desire on their part I wanNA help you know but then I think a lot of people maybe take advantage of them. Well it seems like the companies are really me as very director that like the the wife who's at home stay stay at home wife who want an excuse to get together with friends and stuff like that and It just did it really. It's really targeting. But I did want to thank the Babylon because we had you guys have a story facebook to display warning whenever girl from high school about to sell you stuff. I've actually used this atta girl from high school. I hardly you're Haitham interested or not but I'm trying to find a couple of people today that would love to try our new healthy energy drink. Would you be interested in learning more so I just send you the link to that story. Yeah he was very offended it starts off a no thank you would would have been good or removing from your list. And then she went on about how this is her income. That's brutal it is pretty. You know it's funny. We were sitting back. You you guys were talking about the shampoos I mean he was talking about the. MLM's it gave me this like weird like we're in an alternate plane of reality. Where where are words? Do the Babylon and we're off. Like like. They have the podcast and they do stuff. Where at home making cookies do hair? Ethan's a nurse. You know the dance with with a million. When are you coming Home Shandra? You know she's like I. We gotta get the podcast recorded and you know. That's an aside. They might do a better job you never know they were doing great. I was entertaining to listen to you. Know we should sit back. Let them get going. Yeah that's why I kind of wanted we've been reporting so let's do. Let's do one more story usually three. But let's do one more because I think a got to pick the best one. Yeah we get one or two of one of these doesn't get them going but we're really trying we're like poking them with the stick. Come on shelter. Do you want to read the next story. Six four reasoning the weather episode number six and then possibly number seven because I know my wife will have thoughts on seven. So Sean to read number six and then you guys can talk and we will we. We will be quiet. The entire time discuss we will not talk. Starting no man show sacrificial Comma Christ like love for wife by throwing socks in general direction of laundry basket I am so triggered thing comma free of solidarity even if they mock us. We need to be firm. Stand up up for commerce. I let consistency. Thank you I do too and I like you a bond this for me. I am triggered by this as well. You know I can't okay. I'm sorry but when Ethan were first for living together got married. The Thing that bothered me was he. He always rolls up his sleeves on his bike. button-down shirt and then he would leave his socks in a ball and like I have bought him like every form of foot helper like foot. You know file like you know like Ahmo pay you know what I mean pumice you know and I'm like please use this because our bed like where his feet are is like the pile. I mean I'm not not even joking with high. All of those things come the leaf blowers yes low at all precisely so I went at one point I said to Ethan and you know I'm cool with doing your laundry you know. We're that's one thing I do in our household is I do all the laundry but will you please because when I would unroll his sock go. She's like yes like into my nostrils house like this has got to stop like if we're going to maintain love if we'RE GONNA maintained for love for decades. This has got to stop so I said to him one day like I'm calling junior laundry but can you please unroll your sleeves before you put it in laundry and unfurl your socks so you can inhale your own foot dust and to credit. That was probably like six years ago and he he does it every time. I'm saying I can't like chime in too hard on my man because like I asked him to do it and he he doesn't that's that's that's dedication location right there kyle. You need to pay attention. Ethan Ethan's easy to live with when Kyle and I I got married we were sitting down and kyle was eating a snickers bar. And he has the rapper and we're watching TV or doing something. And he sticks. snicker bar are the snickers rapper in the couch. Cushion Kyle Already Ryan Brennan me and I looked at him. I said sorry. What he says? Does that not go here. I will say that that has changed but kyle also full two socks when he's done using them wherever he's at he's sitting on the couch he takes off his socks. He folds dirty so he folds his dirty socks and so I said just recently if I find these sox around the house I'm going to assume they're clean and I'm going to put them back inside of your grower. What kind of person folds solve them? He doesn't throw them. He told them nicely less if they would look like clean clean socks. It's like when you're like. Are the dishes in the dishwasher clean or dirty you guys. y'All that each other all day long or is that just us. We had an incident with the dishwasher. Misunderstanding Oh yeah. Nothing's worth someone. You unload unload a full dishwasher full of dishes at dirty dirty. Yes I agree. So you're yelling kyle. Are these socks dirty or not. nope not anymore. Okay okay I just put him back end that this is back but he does. He does not put them in the hamper. He'll leave them in that area even pretty good about getting in the hamper but he has a a rack that When we opened the door to I shower and toilet area? There's lake sometimes. There's like fourteen hoodies hung. There's three with the hoodies and like that. He intends to wear again sometimes like workout clothes. Yeah eventually you can't even walk through the door so they're not on the floor. That's very maybe we should get Iraq back. Yeah Single Eighty S. This should be skilled assessment. We haven't heard much about Dan. DM's improved vastly. Listen to that guy. Oh teen years allowed to give away the secret. Okay Kyle and our first cousins. So it's like really funny because I know look anyway so deanna and I just perfected our laundry situation. He has his own hamper. That's good but if it's not in the hamper I am not not watching it. That's right there was a story on their elect about it. Let's do it demand looking in they. Dan deleted though Is it the movie. One knows. Milk one O our podcast. We can just mini store all go and read it. Read it in. The milk is nowhere to be found reports husband staring directly the ad jug of milk. So there's actually a picture you want to go. It's just such a universal truth because like even like our a son. Ezra will be looking for the milk staring right at it and all be in there. I'll find it. I'm staring at it like it's true. Destiny put a picture up on facebook once. And she's like Kyle told me he cannot find the coffee creamer and she takes a picture of the open fridge in the creamer is right in the middle like just right right there and she's like who can find the coffee creamer in this picture like total brutally owned me on the Internet. I feel like all of these Bob. llambi articles about the wives kyle rights specifically of things. That have happened in our relationship because that has also happened and then there was one. Remember San Diego. You couldn't find the keys and I said the keys are in the car in the Cup holder and you ran out and he said I looked in every cup holder and I walked outside and he was waiting in the car and I went foot. And he's like where were they they. Were in the cup-holder Well Ethan. You think calls me Pedia like you know like okay. It's so funny. 'cause allies is becoming the same way. Where like if he'll be like like where did I put that whatever you know and then I almost always know exactly where it is? You've ever it is he's looking for texture L. Texture like six hours later in the day wall. She's at work and she'll know where random things laying somewhere I will. I'll say it's like on the bedside corner underneath the you know the side table. He's like why do you know that. Yes such such random things you know. Do you know where this USB cable you know that does. The specific connection action is in. The house doesn't example because she wouldn't know what she does. She throws the cables away. I do you guys. Have the box of tables. Are the box from capable throws it throws them away and I'm like. Why are you doing this to keep that in the garage? Because they don't go out there that's true that's true. Yeah but it's just like the the encyclopedic knowledge of these random things in exactly where they are. And why would you need to know that but then I need to know she knows what you think about the things that we know and they're probably the same thing. Why do you need to know that that's true well? I don't know if we're allowed to say that. Thi Word on the Babylon be podcast. What is it what do you have just saying I can always D- word is T- flowerbed? Oh that's going to be tried to.

She's five twelve thirteen Disney aniversary wrong and I'm the one who remembers so the reason she doesn't she doesn't get the day right. It's because we should give you guys to. He has birthday. They is January eleventh. No his birthday January. My point and our anniversary is February eleventh right right yes so I always today so I always get those days makes it not the month just the days so we met at. We're gonNA tell her story how we met Etcetera and we met at a Bible study that my cousin was hosting. We would go and preach Do Street preaching like crazy. People do in Santa Monica. Like you see Ray Comfort standing up there and doing the street preaching so we would go do that and then we would go back. My cousins hasn't do a Bible study. She wasn't at the evangelism thing. 'cause she had She had to work but I came back and and it was your birthday. Guess my twentieth birthday and and her and my cousin said hey you know. Let's call in. We'll have taken ice cream for her. I didn't know who she was. I knew Brian Your cousin and Ryan your brother. Yes so she knew she knew my brother and stuff so they call her over. Yeah I'm like I need to get to know this woman and and then I left with another guy to go for a walk true friend and it's a destiny goes. Does anybody WANNA go on for a walk. And she's like looking around you kind of looking at me. Maybe yeah and Sir. You told me this I know she was coming like not that she was like hey to crush on me or anything but I knew everybody else there. The only person I didn't know it's like people you know like hint hint and then my friend Kevin Jumps up and goes. I'll go on a walk with you. And they walked you and I didn't have romantic interests or anything. But he was just a friendly guy. Let's go so they all go on a walk and I'm like Oh man I didn't pick up on it but But then she let me borrow her car a random guy that you just met to go home because I had to leave before everybody else and so I I took the car home and I left a note on the Dash. And I'm like email me. Here's my admin on. AM Here's my AOL AOL address. Yeah very smooth my aol addresses something like punk in Caracas. For Christ it whatever the you know we all had that as early as pay extra screen name. Yeah something like that and so That was it I mean and and then we we started dating and we got married a year and a half later so it was pretty quick but Anything you want to embellish. That's pretty much emphasized. I talked the whole time but I feel like you should know that we talked. That's that was how we met. We talked on. AM Did did we ever go surfing together. No you always want to get up at like five. Am and I wasn't into that. Yeah but I would go but you would go with my brother and stuff and so yeah yeah good times. That's that's our entire story. That's everything there is about Sri Cross. Examine them or anything thing and try to show checks out then. I know you to Dan before I knew. Kyle no I remember. We were having a sleepover which we were. We do back in college days. All the guys will slumber party will slumber party playing video games and stuff one Saturday. One Saturday Kyle wakes up. And he's all chipper getting ready to go somewhere like. Oh you guys want to hang out and do something today. He's like no. I got a date with destiny and I'm like I date with destiny. Wait what are you talking about. I didn't know about person named destiny and it's a date with destiny. I don't think he ever explained to me. I just that's weird kyle and I don't want to mess this up but I I've heard I think I understand is a kyle up much more kind of sheltered and Cherchi like the church upbringing and you didn't quite as much. Is that ever been an interesting dynamic between you guys. I think it really helps with our like in our relationship and our parenting skills because I like I said I didn't grow up exactly like that but like my mom and I watched like the exorcist exorcists and I was like six years old. So I'm like oh about spirituality so I'm like Oh you know of emily rose met my. There's like scary movies so let's let them watch it and Kyle's like you know maybe maybe not maybe not. So we kind of go in the middle and we're like okay like something like let's watch twister twister instead. PG Thirteen which Kyle wasn't allowed to watch until he was like twenty. I saw twister when I turned thirteen. Because it's rated PG thirteen. And that's when I was a lot of watch. PG Thirteen movies your parents. It says right. On the movie poster thirteenth. It's right on the instruction sprint Uncle Brent. Yeah so if I had my way the kids would only ever watched veggietales and so it's a good balance. It's all my kids. Don't watch but not the ones with eyebrows. Not the ones that diversity original. Yeah the ones that Ethan was involved with all right. So let's hear Ethan and injustice store after US now. Sorry what's what sort of October two thousand twelve thirteen twenty thirteen. You Want Andrea. You probably tell the story better but you know they're twenty twelve. We're probably only twelve. Yeah Yeah Yeah. We had everything in one year so we started dating in February and we were married by October. That's the story okay. Actually destiny is part of our story because she like matchmaker matchmaker kind of okay. So I dan and I had. I've been friends for a really really long time like we knew each other back in high school And I probably saw you want to Kyle's birthday parties like second and third grade or something but I don't really remember or we wouldn't remember that but yeah and so for some reason like he had just been on my mind or whatever over and it was. We weren't close friends or anything but I was just like oh I wonder how he's doing and then I was talking to destiny Wedneday so now she was like. Oh what what would you consider your type of guy or whatever and it was like this blatant I was like I don't know but for some reason got just put this Guy Danko. It's on my mind. She was like he goes. You're with us and I was like okay. Maybe you should talk to him. And and then we like ran into each other and then so yeah. This is the Jesus Arm Story to remember this story so I was wearing a Henley shirt. which if you don't know it's like it's like Mormon lady laundries so it's like a long sleeve? Steve Hi neck shirt with buttons down the chest so I was wearing one of those and I ran. I my friend and I she she was like. Oh I'm going on a date with whatever guy whatever and I was like. I just talked her about Dan Coats. And then we get out and he's in the car next to us and I was just like oh I don't have his phone number or anything or whatever I'm just having my cousin's wife destiny like talk to him so you come out of the car Har I'm standing right there. The button on my shirt popped right. It was clearly it was meant to be on. And then you didn't know living Jesus arms thing that you're referring to. You didn't know how to greet me so you're alike you put your arms out like you're GonNa go for a hug and then you cannot put them back you're like second the middle internal monologue so it was like so glad to see him and it was so weird. 'cause I've just been talking about it so my arms like wind up like kind of like halfway hugger so then I was like. Oh no too strong. You're so then I was just standing there with this like when Jesus says the children come into me and has his arms open stance and then and I was like okay just slowly relax your arm and they went back down to my side and then later I was like destiny. I totally messed everything up. I remember remember this very clearly of her telling me the story and she just looked at me and she said Oh. Yeah you totally screwed up so we didn't start dating then and there. You like all the way you tell it is that you were stalking me for a while a bit because I thought it was weird that I was thinking about you because we weren't close and then Dan didn't have any social media he takes breaks from social media which is nice So we didn't have any social media and then I found him I'm Linden. He was like the like. Do you know Dan Coats and I was like what has happened. Yeah and I was like yes. Yes I do so we we actually started talking on the in Male unlinked in and we had business not then I don't know what's worse linked in or aim instant messenger. Yes I started talking emails back and forth and then we decided let's go for a date and so that was like February about this time of year ear back in twenty eleven twelve and then in October October we were married. Yeah Yeah so Pretty Quick Destiny Anyway are upright to me. I was in that wedding sweet. Congratulations let's move on I it's it's interesting that we we were quick. You're quick your questions for him. Process examined by an wonder the quickness thing like I'm wondering how fast fast fast but but just you know just seems counter cultural you know because they know people date for well we had both onto college already We we both graduated. I mean we're kind of we were. I was twenty six when we got. I won't mention but yeah I was twenty six got married so I mean it kind of gets you were really old. At that point. I was really old ancient Ethan. We'll speaking of very very old when you got married thirty one or thirty two Your around there. I think thirty two at least yeah. Well it was eight years ago and thirty nine who man time flies abused so great. Lot's happened here at that time and time. So we've always talked about writing a better story because we met any harmony so that's the really short version. We met any harmony got married period. Yeah you need to come up with something better but I had been on harmony for three years. I had gone on dates with a million women who were psychotic La So there were. There were a lot of ships from. It's like it's like trying to find like a good shirt at a thrift stores. I mean it's just insane. You're trying to find super super picky. Yes I'm going on there and anyway so but how long were you on E. Harmony. You're like the third person I went on a date with so she she she had really a much lower standards than me set up. My profile picture was just way hotter than yours. Your your profile picture. Can we hear the story of the alphabetic dates. Well there's actually two key things who I wanna say this real quick. I saw her profile picture and my response was she's way too hot. She would never date me. I'm not even GONNA ask and I didn't and then she asked me. She said she opened communication with me. Okay so then my next thought was like Oh. She's probably the crazy okay so when we first met we met at a coffee shop and I got there I I and I I knew for me since profile that he was kind of like a bigger dude from his profile picture. So I see this guy in the corner with like a weird like hat looked like blues traveler. Yeah yeah totally like fleas traffic identical. And I like I kind of froze from it and I was like long greasy hair and the trench coat and Australia. Guy Hat and dirt smoked lens glasses and I was like Oh crap. 'cause you know like sometimes stuck even worse than the picture in dial back like forty three forty percent from that and that's how people look what you mean him and I like literally kind of froze from it before then he looked up and I looked at his face. I was like no. I can't be him. I can't be him. Oh thank God so then I get my coffee and sit down and Ethan Ethan walks in. He's like did you already get your coffee striking. Yeah in his mind he just blew it when you meet somebody in the. They live up to their profile picture. A- attractive as like now this isn't GonNa so I was just like I'm not even going to try and this date and I didn't even get a copy so that was like another strike against me. He had to say about him like a dog. He's like I'm done here. So we sit down on new start talking and So kind of interwoven. Through our whole story is the fact that I'm divorced so I haven't been on a first date in like years because I have been married for almost seven years and it was very. It was very frightening so on E. Harmony. They give you this little tutorial or whatever you I don't know what to call it but it says his twelve questions to ask on a first date which I thought was really cute so I wrote a hand wrote them down on this little tiny piece of paper. So we're sitting talking and I pull out what my piece of paper and I'm like army says I should ask you these questions so he thought that was really. I guess you thought that was funnier. You had Q.. Durable so that kind of like broke the ice between us a little bit and then Like partially partway through the date. which just say no like Ethan used his hands ends? You still shake when we were dating so bellicose in Hidden Camera Show. I couldn't believe that she was dating me any moment. Like Chris Hansen was gonNA walk. We have news for you Ethan. Here's Ashton Kutcher breaking through the door right. Now you've been it's been elaborate. It's required a lot of effort on my part to Pumpkin alone. I mean just reality had been so different for like thirty years straight and suddenly so weird take my blood. Sugar must be low. I don't know what's going on like a million different reasons why it's hands are shaking overweight awkward single guys listening right now when there's hope I'm like just a minute you're you're just like so smitten with me. You're actually shaking like it happens like you're not the first one was very smitten so then Ethan goes Okay so we kind of broke the ice. You might flowerbed this one too. But he goes I got to go to the restroom. Reliefs yeah these are wrong over like in an awkward. I think the sentence is awkward. Or something I go to the bathroom and release okay so then our first date. Our coffee date wraps up and he goes. Do you want to go on a second date and I said yeah he goes how about now what I said. Okay sounds even more awkward than I think. It's pretty bad and I was like okay so then we went and got dinner so we had our first our first date. We're all in the same like a six hour date and we went on and on and he heard the talk. He ordered a club chicken club which he like nibbled on he took like. I don't eat that much like I'm man. And that's just our first date and we had the alphabet scared off now. I didn't get scared off and I knew I wanted to marry that down. Anybody I can get scared off. It would have been him because I had like the psycho ex words like she had the psycho ex in two kids. Yeah and Ethan was just like we can talk the early white no baggage career. I was a complete opposite of this guy number way complete. Yeah so then dated for how long. What was the what was date K.? Boy The ABC. Some are really hard to remember. We'll probably I'll probably think of it later. Do Jay okay. So you guys talked about. So what was actually was on E.. Ethan said at this way Ethan is Jessica Slave and Jay was Jessica's because even sleep. That was literally like how I told that one. I don't remember that you didn't you didn't say right. I'm correcting your what I told that. That's the way shape might be shave. Your made me go to. She made me go Vegan restaurant and I instantly discovered. They're both in my recollection recollection. You didn't like your food and you didn't like me how to beard. We do anything good that day today. We went rollerblading and we went to Venice. I didn't wear rollerblades though did I. I can't stand up on the. We biked Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah that was the day that was the ears an eclipse on her. Oh you crazy drumming in tandem at Venice beach all the weird cult people in like white closed the sun it was our date was listener clips. ABS- yeah we were blown away. God the God is all over this guy can just bring down up to you at Chippewa. God can make an eclipse happen on our date now they have to come up with Alphabetical dates if we needed all the all the women listening standards raise Affable dates from my idea. I'm kind of a romantic. Yeah I will sort of like when we first started talking about getting married. Ethan's like okay. I guess we're going to have to just have like skulls skulls and like like remember. That was the first time I said. Skulls Pennsylvania accent Pennsylvania accent. Because I was it's very anti the idea of getting married again. So when we first started going justice of the peace and get like a court thing yeah it was like oh no no no no no and the first for someone ring. Shopping malls like crap. I gave them hope how decision I kept having to coax it out of her. Like like We'll just say you know when you're little girl. What did you imagine your wedding would be like? Because she the whole idea of doing another wedding just freaked out but it Kinda keep coaxing out information formation from early. Oh well there was a point where I did think that I wanted to string quartet or never got it so eventually we worked out in. Our wedding was still probably best just number two. It went perfect like it was just amazing day. Destinies family was It it was is Hispanic and her grandma was like grandma. Wanted the wedding to be her grandma links and her grandma wanted wanted our wedding to be like her dream wedding so it was like every every decision destiny made she was like. You're not gonNA have puffy sleeves you you know who doesn't have puffy sleeves put doesn't have puppies leaves waiting and then you will not slay the bull. The wedding there will be no bowl but is is this Mariachi. One of the Mariachi band. You know you don't have you're not gonNA have Mariachi. What kind of wedding is this? So that's my whole story Alkyl you're not GonNa have Alcohol Gerona Jessica Pretty Teetotaler family but we boldly drank alcohol in their faces his brutal all right. Well those were beautiful stories. Our eyes are watering with emotion. And you get hate mail That long well we got an email where somebody said they were mad about an article that said Bernie Sanders praises China for a radical poverty By killing all the poor people and they were upset that we didn't give any reference to where Bernie Sanders said these things he did say he killed he killed people. Yeah uh-huh and then it's this person says if Bernie Sanders said these things then. He must be very stupid because no vote for him. Or you don't mind submitting articles that lie and and so then water so then our support staff replies and says we are satire and then they give us the about out links and the satire links lease so this is a joke and then we got this very long response back so basically she. She says that her mom was very her. Mom is a Christian and was very upset because she heard that Bernie Sanders said these things and then this is her doing what the wives to read this. read the read the email in her voice.

Let's get to our stories of the week every week. There are stories. These are some of them. Evangelical leaders eaters asked trump which one of them will betray him during impeachment proceedings. Have we received this much anger on on a post in the history of your posts oh absolutely but this was the more were pretty upset the most angry I've seen people in recent in recent times yeah actually actually we got a lot of hate on the one beloved it too yeah we we talked about. We'll talk about in a little bit. Greta Thunberg is at Thunberg say that Joe Hardy. How do you pronounce Yeah Joe? He doesn't know he's smarter than US Swedish right so what's the Swedish way to see the agreed to whom you gotta say it like death mentally great that Swedish the only Swedish I know is is then from an instant be the brother other but what about Fan Oh yeah yeah and frozen the guy the the the guy that owns like the shot the attention to frozen come on daughter watches it on loop excellent film called the white noise to me excellent film so yeah so anyway. The evangelical local leaders are asking trump. Surely it is not I who will betray you more so I think I think people are upset that we put trump's head on Jesus yeah no yeah and they're like it's the sacred supper the Lord's supper and this is out auto bounds out of bounds it. It's weird because I didn't even like I did my that far removed friend that it didn't even hit me. That would be offensive to do that. Yes and I was when I published post. I'm like no one's going to upset some people I was actually more worried about the one we did with chick-fil-a like putting a sweater onto chicken breasts fully closed fully clothed chick fillet chicken breath yeah for the more moderate diner yeah that one. I was more nervous about one. I think what happens is like that. We've got a lot of clicks in lakes and stuff. There wasn't that many shares yeah because I think people are like Oh i. I can't share this little edgy yeah so that that was the reaction there. There wasn't actually a lot of verbal haven this when you got a lot of comments people saying this is too far be so so yeah. I think it's like you can't see beyond the Oh you pasted trump's head on Jesus's head and that's all you see versus. What are you actually saying because what you're saying is some people have elevated trump to the level of God? You know that's what we're trying. That's exactly what we're making fun of you know and that's bad people always helps to explain the joke yeah. Well you know we should also do is explain the photo because that's me there is a photo shopping of trump. I found a picture of these guys doing like community theater reenactment of from which if if my photoshop is sacrilegious than these random dudes dressing up Jesus and in doing the Lord's supper is probably sacrilegious because their heads are unplaced Jesus swapped heads of strange people. Nobody knows about with these heads well. That's like the reformed position on on the second commandment is they won't they won't actually like any pictures of Jesus or depictions of Jesus like you've been an employee like that. It's it's out of bounce. I heard of the I've heard of that. Not Not scenes I am does that make me liberal theologically liberal No. I think that's actually a fringe position. Within uh-huh conservative Christianity Joe's nodding so double plus conservative. The seminary guy agrees with he knows he's not in yeah. I mean but you know obviously. I think there's a line somewhere with second commandment things to picture US right like no I agree with you. I completely understand and agree with the not pictures of God I won't do it when people ask me to draw some depiction of God like a joke and I'll do jokes. Where maybe there's like light coming down from heaven? That's this dog Oh for God yet. I won't try to draw an old man Dan or something like that so like monty python nursing by it's been a long time knock. They've got like God and he's like his mouth opens like a pilot he just pokes out who set off from the clouds and starts talking yeah. No I get yeah. I totally get that. The weird thing is like the Westminster Confession says you can't picture Jesus in your head so when you're lying minute you do they say that you do it right well yeah and they don't think about Jesus. Don't think about them thinking about Jesus and then if you're picturing the Bible stories like what you picture is it blurred out or maybe they could release a video series of invisible man doing Jesus did so you can picture that this is the second commandment approved depiction prodigal son kicked back out after old tweets surface a little sizzle on that at the end radio. He was did in his alive again but his now dead again because he is garbage another. We'll say his name listen so let's Talk Frank Fleming yeah. It's it's a frank article. I'm GONNA INSERT Francs Chuckle right here for our favorite writer. Let's talk a bit about this. Kansas Culture eight cancel ansell culture old tweets and this is an old tweet that we we resurfaced not an old article. It's an old post about old tweets Larry. Yeah it's very evergreen because it keeps coming coming up people getting canceled for their old tweets so we had a story this week about a guiding carson king who was holding up a sign in sports game make sure I get this right and he was saying I need beer money or something like that. Send Me Beer money he put up his Vin mo or alor something on the he he ended up being on TV so like take a bunch of people like you had to like six hundred bucks and he's like all right. I'm not gonNA take this revere. I'M GONNA give this to a children's hospital like a nice heartwarming. All American story like it goes hits like a million dollars. Could he have taken the money and just buy beer. Whatever I dunno win did he decided he made some kind of deal because he had had the beer company Busch anheuser busch they agreed to match the agreed to match and a bunch of other companies agreed to match and became this big thing and I think he he pick the hospital and he was like tweeting? He's connected the hospital is going to do whatever I don't know. It became a big thing I didn't super follow it until this thing came up because I'm more into troll stories but this I'm not completely sure on all the details but I know this reporter journalist named Aaron Calvin decided in his work in they called this the doing a routine background check he dug through his tweets all the way back to high school and found that he had said to racist things made to racist jokes like a sixteen year old and but I guess it's what what actually happened is he. he found out I think they told them they say they found the tweets he they hadn't actually published it yet. He got out of the head of it and and apologize publicly for it and I'm pointed at maybe they would never would have published it but the issue here is still to me yeah but then they did they still did they still put it down to the bottom but then someone contacted the beer company in the midst of all this and set an so that's they kept hearing and say that the beer company cut ties before right because they came because they heard about it. which would it sounds like is the reporter called the Beer Company in ask are are you aware are you aware and they've kind of the Des Moines Register kind of You should have been telling this your way better than the details I am. How did I pronounce them? Wainwright des Moines. That's the real question it's it's desmoines assess MOINA's so the desmoines is register register. Yes so basically these tweets never would have come out so they tried to say was a we didn't contact the beer company they just found out on their own like at the exact same time that we found them which is like Eh. They happened to find him but the best part of the story murderer is just the term routine background check. I mean that's not what you were meaning. That's not the best part of the best part. Isn't that the reporter who dug up. Oh yes the backlash Aaron. Calvin is the name of the guy who dug up these tweets himself had posted racist in the Internet found them and then you got fired which is always sad when some bass thing to watch this play out on twitter and people were posting copying the screen shots and like Oh hey check out with reporter said Oh I got these tweets and he got fired and then to see the des Moines Register they I had their apology about their explanation. Explanation would happen with Carson King and under that then they had a new tweet that came up that was like their apology for hiring and Calvin those responsible notable for sacking the people who have just been sacked. I've been sacked and then even. I don't know if it's delicious. It's kind of like it's sad at the same time but that Aaron Calvin went on apparently he's an expert buzzfeed writer or something like that going completely on Internet hearsay here which is really safe where we just make facts we just yeah we just say overdue we are satire and at the heated this interview and he said You have the quotes here on documenta believe Yeah Calvin told Bud buzzfeed news. These were frankly embarrassing tweets that he would not have published today but he said he'd been taken out of context and the colts are being used to wield disingenuous arguments against me. Here's the best part if he turns this around this expert level. He says I recognize that. I'm not the first person to be like this. Whole campaign was taken up by right wing ideologues and largely driven by that force so when it's done to him it's right wing ideologues are you? This is the best part of it was just a taste of what I assume that women and journalists of color suffer all the time so he's now. He's now become a black woman turned her. He's funny because he used the use the N. word that was part of his many turns it around to all these racists that are attacking when it feels like to be a black woman to have used the N. word in the past and to get in trouble for the whole thing with the registers like they missed the entire point right because nobody like most people on the right weren't saying fire Aaron Calvin it was saying it's find make these jokes th the main point was has nothing to do with the story to dig up these tweets yet. Why is that why is that standard protocol to dig through and what what editor what editor approved this thing and said Yeah? This is a good idea because he seems like a low level guy he was like two thousand followers just digging up stuff stuff and I was his job is getting fact gathering facts just like wow yeah. Did somebody tell him to do that. That's when that's the kind of question like is there. Some higher ups like dig to his twitter history. That person got off Scot free while I'm sure it paid off for the register the pro gun hits you know yeah. That's the thing that sucks. I mean we're all talking about them now. I didn't even know that was the number nobody cares. I mean but yeah they got a ton of US got their adds a bunch of clicks. They got what they wanted yeah so I don't know at the end of the day where he wins because as we have we all tried to tear each other apart. What are we coming to in this world well? We moved the next story before he tried to get too deep. Sure Doc Democrats introduced debate strategy of holding up small child whenever their positions are challenged man. I love the Photoshop on this one this work. You know what's funny about this but I just realized this article. Idea came from or was mentioned in the cancer genes intervene. No I came up with interview we already reward I had actually thought of it you thought of it and then you mentioned and I used it. I acted like I just thought of it. In the interview to rest candle Ethan says something something about like when someone tries to punch you hold up a child and they get every time they tried to put to you hit this kid so we worked on that idea and that became the Democrats holding up the Child Yeah we couldn't have children being punched in the face unfortunately because Kyle's very legalistic editor no I would have been okay with the child being punched in the face okay. It was just more like how do you set up this joke to tip like why is a Democrat getting punched in Yeah Yeah. I was trying to work it out in my head Gotcha so yeah. This is linked to the whole Gratin Berg. I can't Grinberg Lynton then there's the fun or Sern Thon Riveria our third bird Bloomberg Sumberg Boomberg guys Berg how dare you can't tell if it's racist or not that we're doing is you can you can be racist against Europeans It's the reasons fine. Joseph Joseph is now racist and Joe is can we should we reveal that he's got authority on racism. He is a minority yeah not in the world. I mean calling people bovine well yeah. What are you kirk? Korean Green Zone got one. We win win. okay so so yeah so we had so this. This is mainly what this was this whole week constant just been crazy. Yeah these constant. Oh how dare you attack a young child. Did you see that that parody video. Those guys did on twitter there was like it was like support line for people who are upset at gritter no. It's like if you're an angry adult. You're an adult who's angry at a child. Please call this number. You know that was kind of funny but it was but it's this whole thing like wait a minute so you can't curtis. This is the position of someone set yourself up as an authority yeah. That's the other an article that you did. That was really made. A lot of people mad yeah. That's the one that made people marrying strings honored said Marionette strings clearly visible during testimony I think people saw any picture of her in any criticism criticism as like why are you hitting on this child criticism of the people who are clearly make fun of the people who are holding the puppet older around. Everybody's coming fun of her. Maybe a little bit you can get a kid to say your position than you can't. It can't be criticized. It's ridiculous. You're putting a kid in the line of fire me. Neither person is putting the kid. There's the jerk right now. This was fun of so we need to hire a child at the Bambi Yeah. That's a good idea just hire. Just pay him a monthly you you know we have we. Have we have an army of kids between the two of us. Am I know what you just said the minority you've got kids joe equal not not yet. Joe's gotTa have kids some kids. We need jobs kit. When you sign a contract like maybe when when you have kids will I have ginger new gets pretty minority rights ginger? You're minority ginger ginger chicken. Yeah Bright Red Hair Albino Lucan yeah but she like. She's crazy so he's psycho. I don't think she'll garner much sympathy. She's four but she could be entertaining okay. Maybe we'll do an epic. We'll do a special episode where anytime we're going to say something controversial. I have the kids say how about this. If you have a kid and you want them to be featured on Babylon beat to defend US send us a recording of them saying how dare you how dare you protect Babylon three. We will feature your child on our podcast. Everything the Babylon be says I agree with four. If you criticize you are criticizing the child or putting putting up casting call right now please recording. Are you ready to retroactively interviewed. Candice Owens man you right here coming through the door right now candice Indus here she comes presenting exclusive battle on the interview and we are here with candace owens and our big crazy Babylon interview and off the top of my head. Kennison's is an American writer producer. Conservative commentator is very naturally yeah in early two thousand seventeen. I was just thinking back back a little while back Owens launched red bill black website to have to read this whole bio that was very natural. I just felt like you are a really smart guy. I'm full of fun facts perfect so thank you so much for coming on our show you guys for having me so because we're doing an interview with you and your controversial figure we feel like we should get some like stuff out of the way in case anything happens during this interview or they could play back. We we can just give them certain audio clips to play back right. We all are basically a coverall basis because so people expect certain things of us because we're so we just I want to say. How dare you say the audacity quite Davis? I want to ask how how you're able to sleep at night. If I may how dare you I would like to say that I'm literally shaking. Frankly frankly I just wanted to say the word frankly on what planet on on what planet I think we've made our point so now we can move into the about down the road hit you hit him off all the basis we basically just searched your name on twitter and then we just we just all the controversy. All the people were anders and we found you know that's what everybody says so now we're in the clear and now we can safely. I love frankly. That's always frankly. I think I noticed in that video. That's about right now. Unlike c-span yeah remember the girl she looked kind of cocktail because frankly strenuously Franklin knowing in word strenuously strenuously object. I just have to say that I object strenuously to your use of the word Hilarious I knew ASLI object. It sounds painful. I mean you did say that White. Supremacy is hilarious so I mean it's amazing. I think it's it's amazing that they do it. Live now are there are even wait they go. How are we going to edit what she said or what she didn't didn't say narrative and they don't just go right into it? It was incredible to witness it live. What do you think about those headlines? Come just says you know I was reading headlines. It pops up on my twitter notifications and says look on the search thing news candice own says what Supremecy isn't a problem. She thinks it's funny. I mean I I sent actually sent twitter an email about backs. I was so angry about it and I've been one of those people I upset since the beginning that we have to change the liable and slander laws uh-huh. They just need to be updated in this country. It's ridiculous if people can get away with her pistilli exiting something to say something entirely different I mean I think I opened opened. My statement second sentence I sat in front of Congress was white supremacy Israel and he'll at least six times hearing. I said that and yet twitter was allowed yeah with the headline. That says Kansas says white supremacy is not a problem yeah yeah that's crazy and that's kind of what it is is that it seems like the left paints white supremacy as this widespread issue and you're not saying it doesn't exist and you're not saying it's not real. You're saying that there are at least just one hundred things that are at least one hundred anybody wants to hear that you have did you bring the number one. We'd like to hear all literally anything. Oh be city city being tired in the morning as a bigger threat. I mean it's just it's staggering and the the funniest part was that to the people that were sitting in that congressional rational testimony was me we're doctors they got. PhD's bullcrap website bolts and they had not a single stat stat or a number and you even hear when Dr Balu Butts She's like I know I don't have numbers but to ignore the data now the reason we don't have those numbers. I want those numbers as much. Yes you do but the number to say the numbers don't show something is simply not supported by the data. which isn't that data the what I mean? What do you think it is? Why do you think the left emphasizes white supremacy has been this huge threat because it allows them to go out and stomp on to in front of Black Doc America and say we've gotta fix it allows them and paint Conservatives and Republicans as racist with that broad stroke and say that they're perpetuator I support it because they aren't doing enough to speak out against it and it's just absolute crap? I mean the scene crap before an election cycle literally every couple of years and I just don't like are we doing this again. Are we going to join this. They've had something like four hearings. Now on white supremacy in Congress has really weird really weird. It just feels yeah. It feels like like yeah. There's there's obviously guys out there around swastikas on their bald heads but you don't go on the street and like see it feels like we're talking about imaginary thing like I'm going to punch for saying that you're going to be on twitter's stories even the coaches vs the white readiness the bills like Alex Jones style conspiracy theory a lot of the times when I hear people going off from right I mean we everybody knows when when those instances happen obviously it's isolated it's fringe and it's horrible when it happens but to pretend this is like every every single day you walk down the street and we've just got Nazis. White supremacists is crazy and that's just crazy trying to sow division so it's something that's kind uh of visceral reaction of fear and that's why people are driven by the most people I would say though based on emotion or at least I can definitively state that about Gla- Committee for last sixty years reserves just there's no rational as to why we've been giving our Rosa Democrats and they've produced no results and are you know. All of our communities are pretty much decimated so I think that they play it. There now. Trump has done something like trump. DERANGEMENT is real. It is so real that is not a conspiracy theory aged up hearings on that that is the growth of trump derangement syndrome or the last two years is something that is widespread and now you see them drumming up all these other issues climbers mistruths. You've got kids that are going to kill themselves because the world is going to be over in ten years crazy completely emotional and irrational completely crazy so that you've got the black community all bent out shape about white supremacy. You've got these little kids that are skipping school because the the world's going on and it's just not just chaos really it's just chaos and we were going bring up bring that up because the girl was at the UN cra climate thing today I would just like to say she's sixteen. I just found that out and and she looks like she's seven younger or at least tries to find out that almost sixteen so I just want to clear out for anybody else out there listening with your what's take on young people being used involved like that like you're pretty young. I mean we're pretty. He's he's a lot a lot older than we but you know. What do you feel? How do you feel like what would it children have to contribute to the conversation and at what point are they being used versus honestly contributing to a discussion? I mean they're pretty much much always being used does a reasonable left. Democrats want to lower the voting age to sixteen is kids have no rolex reince and and it's very very easy to manipulate them because they have no relief experience so really there is idealistic like hey everything should be free. That sounds like a great concept. I mean something that if you sat down a five year old and said how should the world run made say everything is free because they think that that's just the way things should be but you get a little bit of living experience in in in your in the world and you realize it's always a second that's actually not the way it should work or how they do work and you know the reasons why you start paying taxes and suddenly a lot of your idealism gets wiped away the kids like Greta and unfortunately she is being used by her parents by the on the Global World Stage Right now. The thing that to me is upsetting actually feel bad ad for her his you can't you can't wipe that away like she's always going to be this girl in the same way that David Hog is always going to be David Hogg. Now you know what I mean so when they grow up one day and they go off man really stupid phase. It's like your girl side ponytail that was like crying. Ten years feels like you make an argument and then the person tries to fight back and like you make you say something dumb and then they punch you and you hold the kid up in front of you and they get hit and then you're like why hidden exactly that is exactly what punches a kid and Bernie Ernie nation in terms I mean did you see so I posted a video wasn't there was this was an adult. This was a white woman adults who shrieking about Oh climate change at the climate. It's really something to be seen like you could not see that in a zoo. What is she was like? We are oh you guys. Have I kept seeing the dancing guy and it was like I bleach you know to take care of it but so so you go to these things I mean. Do you have to bring your own mic DRP. Do they provide a mic. Drop the MIC would you probably are. Can you use this one. It's older. I wish I mean that would be absolutely hilarious. It's I did that. Prompt Mike. You get fired up at these things or you can't. You can't believe what you're hearing in. I mean yeah always amazes me that they're just doing this thing and they're trying to. I mean they're obviously trying to talk over you and not let you say your piece and then it comes back and you actually fight back and they're like shocked. Like what do we do. It's kind of it's kind of funny to me. Yes so the ranking Chairman Raskin the Democrat he actually tried they always try to play tricks during the hearings so what actually happened was illegal back and forth so Republican get some time and Democrats in time and he was playing a numbers game they have the majority in everyone had gone except for him he said Oh. Would you guys like to say something thing to Canada said today and he thought that was it. These girls were actually supposed to have the last word Dr Balu last-second Mark Meadows Republican walks in as Dr Blue is going on her spiel so I essentially only got to rebut because I was basically saved by Mark Meadows he came in and then suddenly he was like can I have my time chairman airman and then he sees his entire time to me. Jim Jordan jumped in so I mean they were actually going to let those women have the last word and just go on attacking me the and then say hearing hearing over so it's like getting lick invited on C. Span. You got a call from C. Span Guy I think like me and they get a lot of us. I I am. I HAVE TO ASSUME SOME SPICE IT UP ON C. Span Boring Sauteed. That's exactly right well. There may be dead space in our interview because we're not out of the mounts. Don't worry Mike Mike Cloud. I it's all the way up if you can get a little bit closer so this is a new system. I don't know I I think I may have fixed it but it like it mutes when you get two quiet. It's very eighties doesn't this. I feel like or something about two song microphones Joyce. She was in the one Mama Mia Mama Mia really really all almost on the scene key so we were talking about. Who are we talking about before she came in this room and now we're talking to her? In person we were going to reenact the Senate hearing or the reenactor we were going to but we couldn't. We're trying to memorize the numbers I object Leslie. I strenuously wanted to object frankly you you. You can't make up having three white experts come to talk about the threat of white supremacy and as part dr of their testimony they object strenuously to a black woman speaking. I mean you really can't make this stuff up things right themselves. You know that's the problem. BABYLON BEASTS GONNA have retires reality now we can't we can't make it up there. I mean yeah but you are white supremacist black black woman so you have to you know I've read I am I am the nation's first black white supremacist so that's huge because people talk about white dependencies are growing problem or like. It's you know it's getting worse but you have to admit like if the KKK is accepting black women now let's huge progress step for black women and makes deficit right direction to get more progressive. I think that is really what their definition is of white supremacy when a black person leaves the left. They're like the growth of flights from yeah so you're I mean you kind of have like a come to Ronald Reagan story right because you used to be not on the right he I used to be screaming about climate change you testifying in front of the around the world and a boat sailing around the world hot air balloons and how dare you how how dare you how dare you so how how did that happen winter winter that click for you like that was the honestly it really was was a culmination of little moments that really led up to trump announcing his candidacy for the White House and me seeing the media who they pretty much loved him celebrate him for decades. Everybody wanted to be like trump hip. Hop Artists Actors actresses. He was the guide. NYC You on again by his party a second. He says he's running for president was sworn to wipe everything away and never mind an avowed racist is literally Hitler and I mean if you had even a modicum of intelligence insuring that time you're gone all right well. He suddenly become racist overnight like our sexist and misogynist rapists and they even at one point we're calling him incestuous Louis and saying he had feelings for among trump's. Remember this like they went really crazy and for me. It was just sort of a wake-up moment like Whoa you guys are just calling everybody racists just to feed them and I got really interested in it in politics and did a lot of reading for about a year really had my head in Dr Thomas O. Books and I I was like Oh wait. I'm conservative. Preach the Gospel Song. We've gotTA GET HIM ON SO I. I realized that your headphones turn all the way down openness. I thought this you're just saying you don't even hear you can hear. I can hear you like acting. He's reading. This is is a brand new. We've used for one another podcast and it's all confusing me. That's supposed to make podcasting easier and has flash different now. It's just Mr pro promised. We know what we're doing. When we're writing satire articles yeah that's about all we can so yeah on that topic? They're Kinda reminds me of during during the election. My wife was not gonNa vote and then like the week. Oh it's always the most intense like the week of the election. That's when like get crazy easy. And who do you think you are. If you vote wrong you are. How could you stand against? Suddenly it's the most often also there's no passion for the one week. It was like `I stand with her and I've never acts like their braveheart. You know my wife got so overwhelmed by the you're not a real woman. If you don't vote for Hillary kind of stuff that she just got so annoyed by that she voted for trump the anger phone right now away saying that was canceled canceled small town Pennsylvania Insurance. No I think the worst thing is post election where people are again trotting their kids out and their kids are crying. My I had to explain to my daughter of why society doesn't want women to go all the way and I'm like if your daughter even understood in his seven year old was crying and thinking her life is over and was because one woman lost me. It's just this is the parents always the parents they they put their kids out there but their parents are the ones that have the mental disorders and the kid just inherited you know I have. I still have the Time magazine Article of bookmarked. I cried when I told my daughters Donald trump will be president and it's just epic I go back and I read it all the time because I have a copy of the Newsweek you know how they accidentally accidentally arrogant already had already had the cover eighty cow madam president so people start buying them up on Amazon and I'm proud to say that I'm an owner of it. Oh let me read some of this time article. She says I tried to keep the Trimble out of my voice as I woke my daughter's up a help them get ready saying the minimum. I didn't know how to tell tell them how do you look into the eyes of hopeful youth and tell them everything they have loved his ally. How do you answer when they ask you if their friends will have users to add music what what do you say when they stare at you empty incredulous and scared for reasons that have probably just hungry for breakfast? Mom can you chill out pop tart like Mama Wendy's especially with all this climate change stuff. I'm reminded like crazy fundamentalist doomsday cults that are telling their kids the world's GonNa end and then you know. It's totally a religious thing on the left like if you're freaking out that much. What are you telling your kids at home seriously? It's it's is totally the fall of parents and these never trump women are absolutely insane. It's it's just too credible. He cannot get a single break and in one day in office but I will say this. He's the only president that looks younger. After Two Years Office HE LOVES FOUNTAIN OF US. Literally feeds on it. The tweets man the tweets. He's he loves the tweets before became president. You can tell you he do these running for president stuff and like he oh you likes that relevance and he didn't have it now. He's got it right right. He's loving it wants people. He really likes the like the he feeds in the negative negative tweets too like they don't have the effect people want just a little bit. I love what every time like a Democrat drops out in the race tweets about him. He's like too bad. The one about the mayor of New York does recently such a troll visa stuff like he. That was the one that I thought was going to beat me too bad too bad so weird timing. It'd be alive in the president's trolling everybody on twitter. I actually feel bad for people that hate him because it's such an enjoyable thing if you can not appreciate the humor of it all he's absolutely hilarious but they're so busy haning him that they don't get that he's just having fun. I always felt like there's an element there. That's kind of like the way that people get super used to get well probably still do but he's not as well known now at rush limbaugh. I kinda just the he's just the jokey uncle he has these he you just jokes in this way that he's GonNa riled up but he's just gonNa Punch in the shoulder. Yuck and trump got that people just can't they can't catch the humor at all. They're so serious. That's right serious. Do you think that kind of climate and like what we're seeing is in especially a lot of rain on the left. You think that's turning a lot of young people onto conservatism yes actually so what I've said is that generation Z. is actually remarkably conservative by my generation ruined at the millennials we were the crazy ones and then generations ease it makes me Super Hokuto go around and speak because they're super irreverend in love the memes that they want to say how offensive they can be and I mean it's it's the WHO's the kid was wearing the hat nick neca sand on the kid that got called Covington Killington Kid Furman yeah the I mean they're. They're yeah. They're they're having fun. They liked to offend adult which is good because I mean right now. Even having a sense of humor or being a comedian is is risky. Escape nowadays get cancelled for tweets that were thirty years ago on twitter wasn't even around. It wasn't even around cancel us. That's something you were talking about because you've seen you've had some run INS with facebook and twitter and getting your account suspended and stuff like that we we've had some issues with snow. We had facebook a couple of times shut off a a an article leader something and on one hand and and go like Oh it's censorship. They're trying to shut us down but I also wonder are they just like really confused when they see Christians trying to make jokes and a black woman trying to be conservative they just don't. I don't know what to do. Just wait. It's throws off you know. Did you shut it off. I definitely going completely mad. I've been temporarily banned by all all of them and just yesterday. I got an email from youtube saying that they were going to remove my verification because I'm not I'm not well enough so that so they said they now have of manual people go in all the accounts and apparently I'm not I'm not well known enough saw not at risk of someone pretending to be me and are you Butare your like your own Youtube Chin. I guess you had Mike Pence on recently. was that like not now. You have Mike Pence on. Let's get you have three hundred thirty. Four thousand subscribers yeah so apparently not weeks. They're moving that little that is insane. Yeah it's crazy. It's totally crazy. Bizarre Wells has it. I know it's going to end up happening. Is it's GonNa be a David and Goliath. They're going to get a massive lawsuit that it's just going to be over Uber and that's I really do think that someone's someone's going to win against Google and I hopefully it's big at broken up as an interest for monopoly and and then I'll get my checkmark goes yeah so a Homo phobic was my pins on a scale from ninety first question. I asked him very first question. I mean it's so weird to sit down with these people and just how often either is he's got to be and I'm saying this genuinely. He must be the most honorable decent man that we'd had in in the White House. I really do think that about our vice president I mean just listening a his life since forever he goes to church every Sunday and just hearing him speaking. I'm going there trying to spin you as this like say panic horrible anti LGBT. She's with weird and they can't they they can't get a fair interview. They can't get on to actually wants to ask them questions about what they think so. I've been sort of doing it with my show like show a different side of people ours people can actually have something to make up their mind about other than this polarizing left or right conversations that take place if you're between CNN or Fox News. I love that you had ad hoc newsom on your show. Matter is the kind of stuff I that's the stuff I've talked to you too bye. See Two people that completely disagree and they're talking. I WANNA I wanna see that I am by so many Mama left on and he was one of the only people that extended which is great in and to me honestly if you don't show up to a room that you're not favored and you don't actually believe what you believe I mean why wouldn't if he actually believes in black lives matter then great. I want to give them a platform because I want people to be able to decide for themselves. Who's crazies nearer near as hip and I think there's no way after that episode? People didn't go okay lake or even we can. We can both be in this country. You don't you'll have to talk about I object strenuously joking now cancelled jokesters yeah yeah you guys have a conversation and I don't think unless you guys edited out punch each other in the face or stab each other or anything think subscriber paywall. It's weird to me that the right is the ones that will talk to everybody now. It's it's weird because like thirty forty years ago the religious rights like oh no. We're like yeah we're we're holy. were all that's it. We gotta shut down after the holy ones now so they respect for guys like the came out like that because it is more dangerous I think if you're on the left to go out and talk dealer side right now and you'll get canceled just for just for acknowledging that they're human beings so oh true what happened to Mario Lopez came on my show that's right. He said sentence was so noncontroversial. I think people children's should wait until they're older. Technique permit decisions in the way they translated that Mario Lopez when everybody responds wants to the rewritten headline version of what they say exactly nobody goes and watches the clip of what he really said exactly right. I think that's why that kind of stuff scares people because the gatekeepers used used to be able to control all that you know and now you can just go on Youtube and watch but they actually said right right and that's why they're freaking out shutting down accounts and censoring pulling things because they they they wanna be back in control. I mean that's that's my opinion of why they're doing all this. They WANNA be back in control. What people think is exactly how something happened and they're no longer in control yeah totally nice? This is our pause. He's gathering new business thoughts thoughts. Have you been worse. Interviews probably been on a lot got to be really bad ones interviews story. He actually haven't done interviews in a while because now I do the interviewing true so now it is though when you become interview right suddenly like hog gotta think of stuff to say yeah yeah. I definitely the thing that I had to adjust to was shot for me. I I think I have to just to talking. That's the thing when you when you're being interviewed you you have the things that you always talk about and you know they're gonna ask about those things and you're ready with answers yeah and then suddenly when you're asking questions yeah. It's different so if you were me interviewing new questions. Would you ask you. Oh I would ask me ever get a marriage is because I've got married jerks. We are huge in mentioned that basically working so since you are white supremacist married away man in Charlottesville Virginia by the way what Tiki torches everywhere this interview was over man and so how's that going for you in three weeks of marriage into the bass astor recommended. I'm now giving marriage vice versa. He didn't have an answer. She's never been asked this question. How can we make a headline for this candace Owen speechless? She's got new to answer. Crush zones destroyed owns immediately regrets offering marriage advice to the Bab lights always shut cutter down the Babylon be shut down. Do you know how many clicks that would get read on it. So when I got married I found like I used to come home and just bring myself pickup Carl's junior my wife divorce me on the spot so I would do this before I was married before but then I but then I kept doing or or and I would just show up with this so young. When you got married I was twenty and I I would show with food just for myself and I'd be eating it would be like to steer steering like what are you GonNa ask me? If I wanted any food you know and I'm like Oh that's right. There's another person here now like it took me a while to juniors a little little overrated yeah. I don't know if people do people like getting better. It's like Hardee's everywhere else right entireties. I don't know the price it's worth six dollars six dollar burger and four dollars yeah but it tastes like extra two dollars supposed to be really premium as six dollar Burger. Why don't they say like a six thousand dollar burgers? They can make any number was just an example sample. You know I think all kinds of in my defense ethan. What's your best marriage vice nicer man I wasn't ready? I'm speechless to you should uh give out to foot rubs. No actually I never even backrooms. Backer says an excellent point. I typically never go to bed. Angry angles live down everything. She says. Repeat it back to her laughing back Dr that'd get annoying doing though if you repeat it back everything he says back. That's like a way to acknowledge that there you know that you've heard them like the other day we're supposed to bring my kids shoes and she told me that I got the shoes and then so what I heard was she's bringing the shoe but released you meant she put the shoes on the mantle for me to get it and we got into the car. Neither of US had gotten shoes and you're driving off with a barefoot child and so she's like k every time we have to like repeat back to each other what the other ones said so so just be clear with each other. It's all communication. We're trying to help you right now. I thank you for calling in one one hundred percent. I repeat everything. My husband says back to him out. That won't be annoying so anyway so we think you should change your name to canceled. Cohen cancelled owens. You've probably heard like candice owns like asked aloom. I'm sure that jokes dun-rite yet and then there's the the mean take on what it it quarterly Salem owned the missile. I wish they were funny. I actually appreciate when people are clever are and funny and say rude to me. I'm like good humor something. That's actually really funny good one. They're not funny. I'm just going. That's actually just not funny. It's not a good this even if if I agree with somebody and they do a distance like oh come on you know which one I don't like is the Alexandria Cossio Cortez and they say a occasionally CORETEC seasonal cortex context. That's pretty pretty weak yeah. That's that's like. She doesn't think very much so it's occasional occasional cortex. I get it it. It's pretty weak though yeah this week are these hourly funny with like weird with eyebrows or something the country what he's talking about when I see characters versus a giant teeth Brunson teeth. I don't know so anyway when you got something. You really sounded like you had something like I said anyway and I hope you would jump in so imagine a world where you did not become conservative icon Candice Owens. Where would you be doing right now with your life? Oh I probably would still be working finance private equity yeah yeah I think for sure I got really in that really obsessed with politics and here I am. It's weird to me to think about that that your life can just completely change and Dan Jason the never thought you'd be doing. I had no interest in politics. Turn Up. I didn't need your political science. I mean just nothing and here I am. I actually say though I I think I do politics because a heat politics actually third to me like a calling here and I'm like well that just makes me angry great so I'm showing up very political convention and then it's Weird Congress the really they're actors. Have you ever heard people that weren't good enough to make it in Hollywood. How politicians is a and just seeing the amount of theater or the acting that goes on in there contending to cry and it's just weird spartacus I ab- sparring us it's gotta be Bizarre Alternate Reality Reality and live in that all day every day that was the craziest thing was the Taverna hearings when all those it we're basically all giving their campaign speeches and and they were just like these written new volumes Parkas and they're supposed to be questioning Dr Ford or whatever and they're like totally ignoring the whole country is watching watching it was just narcissism on top of narcissism on top of narcissism like it was it was a really bizarre that was that was really weird? The capital hearings that a poor man that was one of those moments or music. It's like as bad as they say it is bussing down people chasing people down elevators Alyssum Milano sitting behind him like who are sitting there randomly it's like what is she doing lost or order so here we're seeing Rickard. Surveys show that show extras where he plays an extra but he's always trying to like get his shot. That's what this is about me yeah but I agree. It's like to me I do politics because I want politics to stop right annoying my life yeah. I just want to go back to being normal didn't mess with my life so much I wouldn't care about it. I want people to be able to say I disagree with him. Not He's a racist rapist list yeah back in place of I disagree with you yeah that would be great yeah and that's what creates so much absurdity for us to make jokes because people always go to these extremes that are just so ridiculous this. It's like the layup for the perfect joke yeah. They're doing most of the workforce I I know. Your jobs are either really easier really hard because we can't we have to exaggerate which is hard to do know all the already the exaggerated. I couldn't get more executive at the same time. It's Kooky enough that there's a lot of stuff to to make fun of so well facebook book listed you as an agent of heat and secret. That's exactly what we were saying. We were joking around. We're like how do you become an agent. I can't tell you what's the agent of starring Candice Zillions with Mike Pence is like the man in the answer the secret document us once the deal. Is that like a real thing like had some spreadsheet floating around that said Yeah in Nick Nick. I guess they they had me on the list of maybe investigate agent of heat Mubin got Alzheimer's but possibly an agent of hate baby unit. Yes so yeah I mean I had no idea that I had that status. We'll have a picture of you lose. It sounds incredibly warrant you. You know that's nuts skin. That's so wild bonkers man. Did you like yeah all right well. We're awesome at this so this has exit going. It's going uh-huh and it's on my list. It's on your list of questions. That was a good transition must be going pretty well because the left wants me dead so that's always a good marker of how how how hard they try to assassinate your character. Have you ever had any like leftists Ninjas Jim out of the shadows you or anything Oh yeah you actually had run INS with anti-theft -solutely the everyone has story yeah. You haven't seen this vegan coconut milk shakes no eggs which really doesn't make their incredibly skinny any in pay status kind of weird. That's a Myron to be an antique up. They housing remember like in the nineties trolls with the bright hair. No real like the Yes yes super bright hair. We're told me in the troy little naked decontrol a little gem in his belly button and that's basically ANTIFA except they're cuter Than Shwe's trolls were so gross bellies were cute. If ANTIFA was only kid they wouldn't look like those trolls guessing go in voluntarily Alabama chief naked disgusting for that was PG program. We appreciate it but the the but it's just there but trolls the ANTIFA Ninjas can get her. She's an agent of hey ready with a backhand jumping. Pattern cheap like raises her fist. There's definitely some creative person listening to this podcast should turn that into a thing like a cartoon creative. People can draw it was the wrong side of the pen. So you got eggs Mantica yeah they the thought of a cafe who's reading breakfast on Villanova Yeah Yeah and then they show up wherever I speak they're always outside protesting and see what makes there's the other kind of like the like you usually hear about the Westboro baptists announce Antifa uh-huh yeah. They're the new Westboro they should get together. I don't know what spur the associated with yeah we'll be there could cancel each other out we just get them all together and we tricked into meeting in an alleyway punching each other ridiculous thing is they're allowed to cover their faces. I think that is just it is weird. It's weird to me that they think they're so brave and it's like you're so brave. Yeah you're definitely paid. Why's your face covered up this older how strange who pays him Antifa Fund and Anti Fund Anti Fund good do they have an anti named Antifa that was good far uh-huh jokes like ten of the jokes you come up with are not going to be using than one is used but when you do them live than bad ones come out and they're all being used you you guys strategize? This is how we I'm in Babylon. Strategy is a sitting in an office pretty much be spending. We have other writers throw in Atlanta ideas but like around the clock we basically just tell like one hundred jokes yeah and like two or three of them get published. That's that's bad. That's basically it. I mean that's everything right is like we worked so hard on stuff and you find what's good rises to the top so I don't know I don't know if that's similar to yeah you prepare for. You got to prepare for stuff to owns later today. Kaga three lips to later today better prepare when you gotta get you ready for it. I'm just living my best lay. What's what are the property? Tax is like on libs the maintenance tips for owning lives and that's one of the so anyway. Let's wrap things up interesting. Are you Do you have anything you would like to promote to our Oh yes of course my book blackout on Sales On sale for Fourth Twenty Twenty Amazon you can buy there or you can head to Barnes and noble and you can buy there or you can purchase the audio book.

We know you have like an hour life and schedule so we appreciate it so much. Thank you guys for having me right here. Folks the exclusive interview Candido in and we just like to remind you that we disavow everything that everything's disavow all right. What do you think that kyle the Candice Owens interview? That was our big interview yet. I think are most well known person. I was a little nervous about it because she is she is so many leagues above us and the weird it's just weird when somebody walks off the Internet into a little room with you and they're real now yeah and also like she started off with very serious looking face and I wasn't sure if she's going to laugh that was the scariest part because we had a plan to start with those funny stuff yeah and we weren't sure if he's an lap like she was like stone faced and she started laughing. She started laughing very hard. I was good so it was good acting on her part tack. We were funny. Bake laughing fake laughing. Yes great now is awesome really enjoyed it all right. We're GONNA do some hate male but not really hate mail order. I love love man. We're going to do well. We may have a couple couple hates in here but we're gonNA read podcast reviews from itunes echoes we love when you guys write reviews and we don't acknowledge you often enough because people that rate and review us on itunes. Yes you very special to us yeah so this is you love you. The most out of everybody. This is going to be an extended pitch for you to review us on Itunes or any of the STIG knowledge. There's some very well written reviews on here. They deserve. Let's probably GONNA be the most recent ones because I don't have time to scroll back through the very beginning apple's so weird. It's like if you're if you're accessing anything apple not on an apple device. It's impossible to find all right so here's this is I like this one five star review view from Brian Jamerson and he says often the Babylon is often fairly funny. Often is the name of the title of the review often and that won't be is often fairly funny. He's not very enthusiastic but I do appreciate fairly. I'll take fairly funny often fairly funny. I'll take it he means these are stories. Oh Oh no he's talking. This is a five star you often the Babylon be that was the whole review done that I'm just going to pick around one laughed so much amazing control of the structure covering story the topic and reader explaining in our podcast hate mail. This is Keri K. O. Hate mails particularly hilarious satire and sometimes serious. I laughed so much I had to reconsider listening while driving. Thank you carry five Star Review. I checked with snow pts and this isn't even satire. Articles goals great all caps podcast very good the which I probably agree with that the articles are highlight every time I read one hilarious. Keep it up. He's like Hey podcast is great. I love your calls the yelling and then at the end of this when they say these guys know about short circuit and Johnny five and I like that finally we found our person who got our Short Circuit Reference Short Circuit Great Movie we read some bad ones too was a good one a good bad one is careful paluck sixty. One says be careful Q. I don't know whether q at the end of that is that like reference to some conspiracy the humor humor is a little bit forced like it was supposed to be the main thing right thinking Christians. No the main thing is Christ Jesus not trying to be clever. Just over fifty percent of the humerus fine over fifty percent is fine. I don't understand. Is it a one star review. It's a two star so if over fifty percent it's fine shouldn't be three-star. You can't do to an probably he. Maybe he wanted to do two and a half right. Thinking Christians know that the main thing is Christ Jesus agree not trying to be clever just over. We're fifty percent of the humerus fine. He saying half are jokes are evil. I think is what he's saying. This is from This is a person who was mad about the bridget episode. Oh he does swab. Batmobile usually recognizes the potential for satire in the hubris of others this episode declines into the tired critique of older generations Ethan Kyle and bridget to you need some friends slash role models in their parents and grandparents humor satire insider timeless if you look be better be that was the one that we were making an old people I think so yeah I felt bad with that by that one. 'cause we all appreciate people. I'm not making fun of it. I love old people. I like reading criticisms myself yeah. Na does as to how she like. What did we say about people I don't know did we say something about all? I hope people we love. You and I'm sorry this review volunteers like senior centers I will I will be better fantastic. This was really cool. That's a good one five stars. This is like ex cop but the Babylon be that's mecom. It's good earth just do a couple more here. Holly Luhya Land Master after twenty nine eleven said every word is like a delicious bite of a chick-fil-a Sandwich to my eardrums. Here's a good one five stars lives dead with with the guest appearance of Ben Shapiro personally destroying lives in a house fire with the stinky leg and an epic mash up of facts and logic destroying all the libertad sand castles. It's truly beautiful castles efforts snowflakes Adam heard sand castles. It's great how about this one care current ninety six says secret messages await. I played this podcast backwards into my pleasant surprise her the entire gospel of John read enthusiastically by these two white dudes. I look forward to hearing the Bible read in its entirety subscribing now so listen to it backwards I like. How do you say Babylon backwards Ebner Alabama so here's one that says here's one that says you need more editing to stars editing editing editing? Take your forty eight minute podcast and edited down to fifteen minutes. I was these people always fascinate me Liz to a fifteen minute. I look at the top podcasts casts out. There are any of them three hours long in our in our they lack headed down. It's just people his snazzy fifteen minutes soundbite like nobody nobody. There's some nicely edited ones but I think it's mostly like the ones that are shows or audio dramas or whatever those are but yeah if a conversational podcast yeah. This is a conversational podcast if you don't what conversations in fact that's what we tried to warn people at the beginning right. This isn't like the site. This isn't satire articles and we're not going to try to pretend like we're being fake like where parodying being podcasts as I be really hard to pull off or just us and basically we were just lazy decided. We tried it though we we actually did it. It was not funny. We really tried to do like parody news stuff written stuff. That's took a long time to work up and it was not as good as us just talking which maybe just says that we are horrible writers anyway. That's the show all right well.

Babylon Gone 1: The Wigmaster

"Welcome to a special San Francisco Chronicle. Datebook podcast stay tuned after for a message from our sponsor the San Francisco symphony to from our nine. Oh one mission street studios you are listening to the San Francisco Chronicle check one check one two. You Wonder Silver Beach. thin-skinned the first thing that I did when I got here. We start making king copies head blocks of each individual performer with their hair prepped as they would wear during the show that way I could build a helmet it over that that would be fit to them into them alone. Wow so it's almost like the dentist taking a mold of your. It's bespoke wigs. These these are built for each individual performer. I'm Elaine Stein I'm Peter Hartley and I'm Lily Janik from nine to one mission street in San Francisco. This is the podcast and the first episode of Babylon Gone. Speaking at the top off of the episode was Tim's century a few weeks ago. I was sitting with him and club through Gaza Beach Blanket Babylon Longtime North Beach. Venue until a few months ago Tim. mm-hmm was the show's wig master. One of the things about Babylon. There are no straps not in straps. Because everybody has to sing you go over to two. Yeah so you can get over to Las Vegas. And you see the showgirls. Those big showy beautiful hats. They've all got chinstraps because they don't sing. I really enjoy the shade. Were throwing on Vegas showgirls. Here you only well I mean I gotta say I mean they do a lot of work and the stuff stuffed they're wearing is beautiful but it strapped on their cheating well. I think we're the only group that doesn't have to do that. Babylon's the only place that doesn't if you don't know beach blanket Babylon it's the world's longest running musical revue. Oh it's come to be as much an important part of San Francisco as cable cars or quite tower. The show follows snow white as she searches for her prince. Charming encountering along the way and absurd parade of pop parodies and spoofs of everyone from Barbra streisand Nicki Menaj to politicians on both sides in an ever evolving lineup that often changes nightly I found our first archived beach blanket. Babylon story from one thousand. Nine hundred seventy four to show is supposed to be on for two weeks but then it just got bigger and bigger through the seventies and eighties and it ran for forty five years. The show is a surprise is even the chronicle columnist herb. Cain who said everything you hear about it is true doubled and redoubled a quote from her cane in that nineteen seventy four column. And if you think I'm feeling humble because beach blanket Babylon goes. Bananas became the biggest hit in town without so much of a mentioned in the space. You are right. But here's the thing. Come New Year's day the biggest hit in town will be no more beach blanket. Babylon is ending forever over the next three episodes words of Babylon gone. We're going to get into the heart of the beloved show here unforgettable stories. Some of which include famous guests Sidney Poitier Prince Charles. Camila and in our third episode will bring back the chronicles question man feature. We'll call it. The question and explore with the closure means for the future of theater are in San Francisco Own But first we're going to hear from Tim. SANTRY OUR WIG master who during fifteen eighteen years created the big hair gigantic hats and even more gigantic hats. That made the show iconic just to be clear. These aren't your run of the mill type type of wigs and hats. They're enormous like nothing you've ever seen like the one with a Christmas. trant top wigs that are larger than the human being carrying tearing them three hundred pounds with every major San Francisco. Landmark on top lily sat down with Tim Club Ghazi. He's kind of typical. The folks as we found there someone who is looking for a new family and founded in this madcap environment. Tim Is the fifth generation of a Central Valley farming family. He went from a childhood of beans cotton and cattle to doing wigs and make up for a theater in San Francisco before I met him. I was sitting outside on the steps of Club Foo Ghazi waiting waiting for our interview and he walked up. Sat right down next to me and started talking. That's the kind of person he is. Here's him on the first time he saw the show and then a little bit about the day to day. Adventures of being a WIG. Master I heard of beach blanket as a kid. Well young man not a kid. I'm sixty so But I'd heard about it before I moved to the city in the eighties Just by people talking about this fantastic show That was satirical and funny and cabaret and it was somewhere in North Beach. I just heard about it and then while I was up here in school I came to see the show and fell in love with it. Yeah what what do you remember. From the first time you saw it I was blown away at the amount of talent that was wrapped up in one little show. Ninety minutes of nonstop humor laughing. Great costumes glitter it. It sparkled nickeled. It's alive yeah no and I just thought that would be a place to work if ever the opportunity happened and of course I was at the time just working as a makeup artist I thought in my talents wouldn't be here But then by the time I got through school like I pretty much figure I could do it and the opportunity presented itself you have. What is it ten characters? And they're going to perform maybe a hundred different characters in an evening and ten actors one hundred characters so and most of them have different wig. How many different combs and brushes? Would you say there are in the wake shop stars handfuls. But you've you find the tools that you like and you probably he ended up using maybe ten different brushes that really sued all your needs got it got it. So where is the workshop. It's downstairs. There's an cereals which was a nightclub that Steve Silver created one. He started renting club for Ghazi downstairs. Here Lewis well. So what is the wig shop like like what does it. What does it feel like in there? What's the vibe home? Oh now because you spend a lot of time there and when I got the job I asked if I could build my own workspace. And they allowed me to so physically physically built all of the cabinet in the shelves that I needed so that everything was right where I needed it to be. Here's a tour of the workshop from Beach Blanket Babylon Avalon's most tenured employees. John Comey Yanni. We'll hear a lot more from him in the next show. His tour is followed by our most cherished audio in the Babylon ungone project featuring the brushing and preparation of a beach blanket Babylon Wig. They've ever going. Oh Yeah we're on our way down to the basement which is also known as cereals which is named after Cyril Magnum. He was the biggest fan of the show and he came to see the show over five five hundred times even table on his own chair. And that were in the Wigan area and here is a weak person More of Babylon gone coming up and stay tuned. After today's show for for a message from our sponsor the San Francisco Symphony. We heard so many incredible stories in our conversations with the cast and crew. These this is the kind of stories audience members in San Franciscans. Never got to hear. I wasn't sure how much people would want to talk to us. I thought it was going to be one Kleenex after the other her I mean these are human beings who are losing their jobs but I feel like we got all the stories for this next one from Tim. What you need to know is that there's really a code around around these wigs? You know how Disneyland Calls. They're actors cast members and they're never allowed to remove their mascot heads. It's like that. If a WIG leaves speech blanket Babylon it has to be dismantled into tiny pieces. You don't just walk out into the world with one except evidently this time. One time I was walking down haight street and looked in a shop and there was one of the whigs that was from out of the show and I called the manager. I talked to them. I said Oh that looks like a beach blanket. Babylon Wig. Think they said yes it is. I said wow. How did you get so lucky to get that? They said well this person had it in the NITA's brought it in. We bought it from him. I said well that's very fortunate. So I I went and called the management and said this is where the whig was so they called them and they got the wig back and then we took it apart so that was what happened. Actually it's been thrown away at the dump but it hadn't been taken apart and somebody found it and thought that they could sell it. That's and so it ended ended up back in town. Did you feel like betrayed seeing that in a window Off Put anyway Betrayed Yao now was like really odd to see an didn't felt so out of place so let's set the scene Lilly. We had biked over separately. Club Fhu gauzy several hours before the show when it was basically empty I loved walking in and smelling the smell. I don't mean like it was a bad smell but there was a musk. A historical stoorikhel lived in aroma from chairs that have been sat in and sat in and sat in fabrics and carpets that have absorbed audiences from all over the world. He felt like if you've listened hard enough you might be able to hear an echo of a past performer. Singing an old refrain. Over the course of our talks an interviewee might gesture at a regular patrons turns favourite seat and you might feel a little shiver. Their shadows seemed to reappear. Maybe for just an instant. It's a special theater in the heart of North beach where it still feels like a San Francisco neighborhood from an era before ridesharing social media like a rotary telephone era. And if you're walking by you could almost almost miss the venue except for the fact that it's on a block of greenstreet called Beach Blanket Babylon Boulevard. I've certainly walked by it before and never noticed it was there. The street is all residential apartment buildings. A couple of cafes a funeral home and then all of a sudden there are these columns announcing the venue with the handprints of zero. Who saw the show more than five hundred times on the sidewalk? The and the WIG Master Tim. He's just one character in this whole world. I just kept thinking about how this whole operation. A Universe of San Francisco within the city itself Elf is going to expire in a matter of weeks. All these carefully laid out costumes backstage character labels and just the right spot on the stairway three tracks taped out on the floor backstage so no one in a giant hat collides with anyone else in a giant hat. When that's all gone what's left I love this job. I told people before this was playing i. I came to play class. I come to get to build stuff in my shop a creative I worked with wonderful folks I I loved being here so to hear it close when I was in my heart of hearts I wanted to retire from here in fifteen years. I don't WanNa stop working until I have to and and I was at a possibility. Yeah it's theater and in theater. The possibility is always there that it's GonNa Close. You GotTa know that your mind is like any business. I guess but computer more so than others. Things tend to have a shelf life. This seemed to beat that forty. Five years is the longest running can say oh consecutive Brennan Show in the world. That's got to say something is working in a house still good. We're not being taken out of business because we're not making the money. Just that did time for it to go. Dr Uh wisdom from Tim Santry by the end of his interview with you. I felt like we were the ones losing our jobs and he was consoling us. It felt like the kind of aching hope that you don't always feel and conversations about art in the bay area. This is my favorite part coming. What what do you think of the San Francisco? That doesn't have a beach blanket so like when we wake up on January. First I after that wild party on New Year's Eve and there isn't a show anymore like what is that that city well. I'll have a gleam in my eye and said sorry you missed it And San Francisco's resilient. So it'll come up with something. It won't be this But you know we've got the new chase center. The you know things are changing and happening so the city will always have something coming and going. It won't be this trend. This is a gem diamond. It's gone I felt sorry for anybody who's never had the chance to see it because it just is just magical good theater. Cheap prices couldn't beat it and you know and it's in North Beach. What a great place to be great place to work? This is your come to North Beach to work. Well not an office buildings ablaze. The sometimes happens in journalism the interviews winding down. And you've asked all the questions you wanted to ask your feeling pretty good and then there's a magical little pause when everyone's mind is still reeling and you don't really want to call the interview over yet but you could and suddenly in the cinematic moment out of nowhere. Are you get the best line of the day. Anything that that these questions have dredged up in in your mind that you want to add that.

Living in Exile, (OGW, 046)

"Today I wanNA reflect on the him. Oh come come Emmanuel. We're familiar with that. We hear all the time as we're moving into The days closer closer to Christmas but listen to what it's saying oh come on comey manual and ransom captive Israel that mourns and lonely exile here until the son of God appear. I was thinking about this when I was reflecting on it this morning. That we are like light captive Israel right we are actually in exile from God. We're captive emptive here on earth. We're not with God in heaven where we are called to be so we're morning in lonely. Only exile right until God appears and then when Christ comes again we are freed to be with him. How amazing that is this him that we sort of take for granted because we hear all the time is amazing? Amazing Oh come now. Wisdom from on high who orders off things mightily. Do you believe that God orders all things things mightily you should. He is the one who put this earth into motion who created this world. Who created did you and he did it in an orderly way and so now we're waiting we're holding our breath waiting for Christ to to come and free us from this exile from him because we're not fully with him as we should be because of our our sinfulness right and so we try as hard as we can to move towards purity in this life and one day we will be with God God but we shouldn't plan on doing that any sooner then? He calls US home so we don't rush into that. So in the meantime meantime like Israelites. who were in exile in Babylon we to make do the best weekend in exile that we are experiencing? I hope you're enjoying these days growing closer to Christmas. I thank you for being with me a listening and I pray that you have a blessed day in God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy thank you for being with me.

Ancient Babylon

"Ancient Babylon dedicated to aleni, and I'll see her whose family supporters on patron Hallo. This is birdie. And I'm here with the latest story based on the histories of Herodotus in a previous episode. I told you how a young Persian called Cyrus rose to power in the part of the world, we now call Iran. He led a hill tribe called the Persians in revolt against their masters, the Meads when he made himself king of the Meads in the Persians Cyrus inherited an empire that already included a large part of the Middle East before long. He set his sights on the biggest prize of all Babylon. Babylon was probably the largest wealthiest and most powerful city in the world at that time its name meant God's gate. It was based on a bend in the river Euphrates in what we now call Iraq about fifty miles south of Baghdad you will. Often hear the word Messer patina to describe that part of the world. It is Greek for between the rivers referring to the fray teas and the Tig rece- the people who lived between the two great rivers Doug water channels into the land. So that they could easily farm crops and grow food. This fertile part of the world was where writing first appeared around three thousand one hundred years before the birth of Christ. And in many ways, it's where civilization began. Herodotus visited Babylon and has left us a detailed description. He said it surpassed any other city in its splendor and size. It was surrounded by a moat and two massive walls. The outer walls were wide enough for two chariots to pass each other along the top of them the river Euphrates ran right through the centre and people crossed the river in little round boats to reach the other side of the city. He does not mention the hanging gardens of Babylon that were one of the seven wonders of the ancient world these were gardens that ran up the side of the palace of neighbor Coon EDSA, like a slope on the side of a mountain covered in trees and plants all day long men. Worked screw pumps to bring water up from the fray teas and to sprinkle the gardens, the widest and most beautiful of the eight gates of Babylon was the ish Dr gate, which was covered in a blue lapis gays and decorated with images of lions and bulls this opened onto a broad central avenue. New along which great processions would pass during festivals. Ancient Babylon features often in the bible. It is first mentioned in the book of Genesis under the name of babble, according to the bible story. There was a time. When all people spoke one language humans try to build a tower the tower of bagel so tool that it would reach up to heaven God struck the tower down and scattered people all over the world, making them babble in different languages. So that they would no longer be United and Babylon plays a major part in the history of the Jews as recorded in the bible because Babylon's greatest king Nebot could Netzer the second destroyed Jerusalem and its temple in the year. Five eight seven BC Hillard, many of the surviving Jews back to Babylon as slaves psalm one three seven in the bible recalls. The time of sadness. By the rivers of Babylon there. We sat down year we wept when we remembered Zion. Those words were made into a disco song in the nineteen seventies. By the group Boney, m the book of Daniel in the bible features a story called the feast of Belshazzar Belshazzar crown prince of Babylon held a feast where he and his friends drank from goblet stolen from the temple of Jerusalem, which they had ruined while they were reveling the hand of God appeared and wrote four mysterious words on the wall Belshazzar was both terrified amd baffled by the strange writing his magicians could not solve the puzzle. And his Queen advised him to call a Jew Daniel who has known for his wisdom, Daniel explained the writing on the wall as meaning that the days were numbered for both Belshazzar and Babylon, and they would both be destroyed and soon they were the story is. Is probably a fable, but it's related to the real full of Babylon. The Persian king Cyrus led his army against Babylon in the year. Five three nine BC Herodotus tells us that he had delayed his attack on the city for one year in order to punish a river. Yes. You heard that? Right. A river his favourite white horse had plunged into the river Guindy's and had been swept away by its currents. Cyrus was so furious with the river that he ordered his men to weaken it they spent the whole summer digging trenches to take away its waters an after that they had to postpone the attack on Babylon until the following spring. The Persian army met the Babylonians outside the city walls at the battle of opus, the Persians defeated the Babylonians who then retreated back into the city where they had stocked up enough food to hold out for years. According to Herodotus Cyrus ordered his men to dig channels into the river Euphrates at the point where it flowed into the city. These channels lowered the water of the river. So that his army could Wade into Babylon. They sneaked into the city during a religious festival when the Babylonians were too busy partying to notice that they were being attacked the city fell easily. That's the version told by Herodotus, we have another story from an ancient document that is even more interesting. The document is written by somebody who was actually there at the time. Although he may have been a bit biased because that person was Cyrus himself after taking Babylon Cyrus wrote the story of his conquest on a roundish stone cold a cylinder. The cylinder is now in the British Museum in London. He roy. Wrote. I am Cyrus king of the world. Great king. Mighty king. King of Babylon king of Sumer and a card king of the four quarters. And he tells us that Mark the God of the Babylonians was angry with the rulers of the city king nab on do had stopped worshiping him. Mardo searched the world for a good king and found Cyrus the Persian and ordered him to attack. Babylon Cyrus marched with an army so vast that like the waters of a river, you could not even count the numbers of his men he entered Babylon without a battle, and the people rejoiced and bowed down and kissed his feet. He came in peace and did not permit his soldiers to frighten any of the people then he returned images of the gods to their temples. And he let the people who lived in Babylon return to their homes. Cyrus does not specifically mention the Jews, but many people think that the last sentence is about them. We know that Cyrus did indeed allow the Jews to return home from Babylon. He also wooded the temple of Jerusalem to be rebuilt. Not surprisingly the bible repeatedly praises Cyrus and caused him. Anointed by the Lord. And that's the story of how Cyrus king of the Persians conquered the greatest city in the world. He did not use a full-on attack. But what is cooled diplomacy? He seems to have persuaded the people at Babylon that he would look after them and their gods better than their own king after he took the city he did not destroy it or murder its people and rulers or turn anyone into slaves. Instead, he set himself up as a wise and just ruler. Other generals at the time and in most other periods of history when not nearly so wise. It's more than norm for victor's to kill and enslave, their defeated enemies. Some people claim that Cyrus was the founder of human rights. But I think that's going way too far. His mercy was conditional on people handing over their gold bowing down before him and even kissing his feet. He realized it was officiant to rule with people's agreement and to enroll them willingly into his army to make his forces, even greater even. So it is the quality of mercy that made Cyrus one of the greatest military leaders of all time. And I'm delighted to dedicate this story to aleni and elsia who loved to listen to story Nori in their home in New Zealand. They especially love the lap is stories and the history of Herodotus aleni is seven and a half and loves books and ballet elsia is four and three quarters and loves gardening and singing their parents fill and Susanna have signed up as monthly support some patron, and we're very grateful for their support for now from me, Burti goodbye.

It's just downright fun. Aw You're listening to the datebook podcast and this is part. Three of Babylon gone our series about beach blanket. Babylon San Francisco's quintessential to central work of satire. I'm any vein Stein. I'm Peter Hurt Lab and I'm lily. Genyk beach blanket. Babylon is ending. Its run after forty five years on New Year's Eve and all of that time the show has never just been for theatre insiders. It's belong to the entire city of San Francisco which is why as part of our Babylon gone series. We wanted wanted to hear from you. We decided to revive a chronicle feature from the past called question man for our purposes calling it. The question question man was an an extremely popular column that ran the chronicle from nineteen fifty nine to nineteen ninety three and for most of those last two decades the byline was by Conti which who was actually Kristen Della plane. The rules were pretty simple. A single thoughtful question asked on the same bustling San Francisco Street Corner. Peach Blanket Babylon John's val diamond showed up in a question. Manser twice we wanted to take the pulse of the city as it's losing its best known theatre company. Maybe that would give us a sense of how much the show mattered. And why maybe it would give us some answers about why. The show's closing for the record. Producer Joe Schuman silver has said in interviews with the chronicle that that there wasn't a specific reason for the closure. She just felt it was time. We also wanted to see if our fellow San Franciscans could point away forward in a post beach blanket. Babylon abalon world for our version. We sent lily to North Beach Beach. Blanket Babylon neighborhood homebase. I stood outside city lights bookstore on on Black Friday freezing myself for a couple of hours in the afternoon and she has the same question to every passer-by who she could get to talk. Talk to her. Have you heard of a company called Beach Blanket Babylon or have not you. You haven't I have not. I didn't even get this guy's name but I'm including him because he's the first person who would talk to me and I think you can hear in my voice how disappointed I am that he didn't know the the show. This is where I'm thinking. Oh my God this is going to be a long day and I did get a lot of knows over the course of the day and not even all of them from terrorists. This this is definitely the Babylon gone job that I didn't want beach blanket. Babylon I haven't no say that again. Beach Blanket. Babylon Babylon No. No I've never heard of that I have have you heard of something called beach blanket. Babylon beach blanket. Babylon what is it. Beechwood beach blanket Babylon note. I It doesn't really. I mean Babylon on his. Yeah but the the name together I have never heard that guy was sixteen years old the last one and I really like that. He wanted me to know that. Hey He knew at Babylon even if he didn't know beach blanket. was there a point where you just wanted to call Peter and Anne and say you know what let's just not do beach blanket Babylon and get another their subject. I mean actually. The nose weren't concentrated. I'm grouping them together for y'all's benefit I got a pretty good like cross-section over the course of the day. Not every no was disheartening. Here was my favorite one for her. The beach blanket Babylon. I've not but it sounds wild so then I got a few maybes and I love how this first one. I get like all excited with how she sounds at the beginning and then it's like oh I think I have actually. It's in the park. It sounds familiar. It's famous you. Yes I mean. I think I've never been there but maybe in some mention of it. Yeah Yeah what have you heard about it I just heard that play. I've never seen it. No I have not I mean I know the street but I don't know what references to so you've like passed by the street yes pay. You're like what the heck is that. What does that mean exactly? I was kind of Louis this kind of random but I assume new play or something. I'm not sure why. Maybe that's something I know from the past. I don't know why but I do some kind of player performance so then there was a special breed of maybe response I mean I think I've seen some clips of it performed in the fifties. Maybe Malibu this is Patrick Costello of Costa Mesa. It took me a minute to figure out why he said beach blanket made him. Think of the fifties or sixties. What do you remember from those clips I don't know just like Dick. Dale Guitar Sir Surf Music. It sounds like an old movie with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon Beach Blanket Bingo. I don't know if I've heard of beach. Blanket Babylon Steve Silver was a huge fan of beach blanket. Bingo the movie and of the beach each party film genre and that's what he named his show after. I did get plenty of yeses throughout the course of my day. I and my I was from Abby Snai who's a forty year. SF resident. Of course. Yes what do you know about the show. Well seen it a a few times a long time ago and it was really sad when it closed. Yeah it's really a San Francisco Institution that somehow kept up with at the time and then kept incorporating contemporary politics and issues while keeping the great traditions What do you remember from? I'm seeing the show. He said like several times. You've seen it. Yeah a long time ago will certainly remember the costumes. Incredible hats and diamond belting thing out all the songs and the laughter and the jokes and it was rockets and fun and a real institution. Yeah it's just take loss. I don't know if it just came to the end of its time if the people who are doing kind of lost their spark for if it was something that more tourists went to than people who live here. Yes I have. I've seen it a couple of times. It was This is Steve Corn Rash Asia thirty-seven year. SF resident costumes outfits. I've loved the ending with the Super duper sized hat that somebody has to wear the end and balance since It's just it's just pure San Francisco theatre it's when was the last Jedi savage show. Oh God probably like twenty years ago. Did you hear the news that it was closing as an yes I did what did what did you think when you heard that I feel like San Francisco's losing it institution. It's You you know. There's not a lot of the old San Francisco around anymore. Something like that. I I think I wish it would stay last question. What do you think the city he will be like without it A little less theatrical but still a great place to live one thing I'm noticing here is is that number one people don't want beach blanket Babylon to go but number two. It's like frozen time and there's a sort of mix up like the current beach blanket. Babylon is the beach blanket. Babylon of twenty years ago. People just haven't gone back to the show even though they seem to love it. I I bet if you you pulled San Franciscans right now and said WHO's The star of beach blanket Babylon even though she's been gone for more than a decade. I think most people would probably say val diamond. I've actually had that happened to me. People think fell diamond is still in the show. One of my real gifts served. The day was bumping into a gentleman named toll who just moved to Danville from Alabama and declined to give his last name. You also heard him at the top of the episode. We're going tonight. You're by perfect interviewee. Yes this is my third time so okay. What did you think? The first first time he sought loved it thought it was hilarious. Wonderful Satire bringing eleven people that night. We've got my brother and sister in law from Alabama Alabama in and their kids My cousin and his wife from Memphis Tennessee and my cousin from New York across country gathering during a beach blanket Babylon. Well I did tell my cousin from Memphis that You know he won't feel lost because Elvis in the show and he could cite with. Specificity has favorite parts of the Shove Ruth Ginsburg her theme song staying alive and Nancy. Pelosi leader of the pack You gotTa love loved the Von Trump's I explained it to my To my family and we talked about everybody going for Thanksgiving given its political satire. Little risque leaning to the left as well and I were talking. The rain that had been threatening all afternoon finally started but I got that feeling I get sometimes when I talk to other theater lovers which is that both of us could have just just kept going forever. I don't think we minded our noticed. The rain that much on some great comedy great music. It's just a wonderful review but I'm glad I got to see it I love toll And listening to him. That's where I feel like this could keep going. This does have an audience the ants This is relevant in two thousand and nineteen to a really specific group of people And you can hear it in. His voice is that He just admires the performers loves the show and is going to miss it. More of Babylon gone is coming up and stay tuned after today's show for a message from Mr Sponsor The San Francisco Symphony. Let's contrast toll with Glenda Graves A twenty-five years San Francisco resident. Who's never seen the show? Did you ever have a desire to Opportunity came up a ticket came up. Maybe not your thing as much I live in the tenderloin so I go to drag. Shows aren't as good. What are some of your favorite troops to see? Oh there's the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence of course yeah And then I do love Charlie's and I saw Glenda. She was standing outside the SUV with a cigarette. Looking off into the distance she pointed out a rainbow which I hadn't seen despite standing on that same street corner for at least an hour at that point Did you hear that beach blanket was closing. Yes I did I did. That was sad soon. Other icon closing shops. You know yeah it just the slow What is it Radicalization of what's made us what we are slowly going away. Did you ever see the film. The best part of the conversation was how she didn't want to complain about a changing city without adding adding this thoughtful caveat. She asked me if I had seen the movie. The last black man in San Francisco's he talks. Steps scenes is on a bus with these the two girls to white girls and they're all like oh I just can't stand San Francisco. I Hate San Francisco. And he's like you don't get to say you hate it unless you love it and I was like yeah. That was pretty poetic. Like there's you can't have like easy hatred or something. Yeah it's really nice to hear Glenn to talk about and Charlie's and the sisters of petrol dull geons because like beach blanket Babylon those are also cultural pillars of the city. And it's clear that she like so. Many other locals has an obvious reverence for these spaces and groups that make the city so special but at the same time there's this slight echo of a specific perfect cultural attitude I've noticed towards art entertainment in San Francisco and it's almost as if we might love something but not necessarily we like it or like enough to support it at least even if it's not our taste and it reminds me of all the bars and the venues that are closing that we collectively admire from afar and feel proud of when we talk about the city. We live in but at the same time. We don't make that leap from appreciating something take action and we hold dear the things we've never experienced it's almost like you know. She quotes the last block. Man in San Francisco. You don't get to hate eight San Francisco unless you love. It feels to me like you. Don't get to love San Francisco unless you actually experience it. So what's your name. Michelle Bolton what did you make of the news that it was closing And I always feel two ways about something that's gone on for very long. It's gone on for very very long. And it's we live in a capitalist society and it's still making getting money than people want to see it and are getting something from it on the other hand it blocks out other new things that could be interesting and go as long so sometimes it as hard as it is for traditionalist to let go of something old something equally good and a new different way spirit could come along too. So may I ask your name. Yes Spike McGuire. So have you heard of something called beach blanket. Babylon I have. Yeah it's like. What isn't that the longest running show in San Francisco? Bill why sit in absolute institution talked about in the theater community. Find One. I've actually Greg Gas because it reminds me what I needed to go again. Well I I have some sad news for you. The show is closing. Oh my gosh. After all these years why they're saying just like it's time Yeah it was announced in April in the last show is merely. What does that make you think about? Well it's conflicting because he'd always sad sad to hear of any institution going away but then also as an artist. I can appreciate that feeling of completion Cam knowing when something's done so if the creative team feels feels like it is time to move on and start something else then maybe that is for the best so or you know even just just close one chapter and start a new one can feel good. That's the thing about art you know you're always constantly chasing the news so sometimes some things right ending for Saturday's ending so new things can begin it. I used to spend a lot of time bemoaning. The things that are gone and San Francisco then one day I was interviewing the Sky Jack. He's someone who collects old movie theater photos history of movie theaters. If anyone can be in the woe is me. San Francisco has changed inched category. Its till Meinie. This is a big check yourself moment for me. I remember I was talking to him and complained about a theater that was leaving and he started hearted listening all the theaters. That are still around. I'm expecting him to like you know. Have the support group with me and we're GONNA complain. About how San Francisco's changed. And he's telling. Let me have you been in. CHICAGO HAVE BEEN NEW YORK. We were lucky enough. That Bill Graham Carole Shorenstein Hays people like that took these old movie theaters and made them something something else for community their churches in the bay area that are taking place inside an old movie theater where the guts of the theater is still there. There's a workout. cout place hunt the Alhambra on polk that the theater still there and sometimes one of these theaters comes back. The Alamo Draft House this theater in the center owner of a block that no one even knew was there is thriving now so this is my new default. If I think there's a chance to stop it if it's something like the punchline then my advice is ball up both of your fists and fight but if the runs just come to the end like beach blanket Babylon then. Maybe it's time to say a proper eulogy. The and then redouble your efforts to visit the things that are still around during the question. When I was standing outside city lights I tried to ask ask as many of my interviewees as possible if they were theater people generally and while I did get a few knows? Are you like a theater person generally the early. Now you're not so much but I do enjoy arts. No not I should not really at all The vast majority At least expressed an interest. Just listen to the excitement in the voice of seventeen year old Zara. Ahmed of Fremont are you a theater person at all. Oh yes I am. Does that mean you are an actor. No I just like to watch theater and I don't know I had hoped to like work backstage or do something like that one day because it's just a lot of fun to be world very rarely. Do I meet people who feel a total of version two theater. Usually they're more like I totally go but I don't have time or I'd go with my friends are going or like but which shows are good people. Our theater people go to a children's show and look around in the audience and you'll see that a love of performance is in born for so many of us as just. Is that somewhere. Along the way we forget or we let society convince us that we're not theater people. Whatever you decide to scapegoat for beach blankets closure and I'm writing about this us as a manifesto in the chronicles pink section? The best way to fight back. Give yourself permission to just go to a show spontaneously even not right because anyone tells you that you should but because you want to. When you're there open yourself to it completely let it sink underneath your skin entering entering into someone else's story like that that's actually an act of courage? It's Civic Act. It's part of being alive and for those of you who can on create. Maybe we should give the final word. Tim Santry beach blanket. Babylon beloved wig. Master who was the centerpiece of episode.

Hello I'm cherise racehorse in and I'd like to welcome nick. Play talk to our holiday brass podcast sponsored by the San Francisco Symphony. So Nick what are some of the most iconic holiday brass songs to play. Well I'm a huge fan of the Classic Leroy Roy Anderson Song Sleigh ride as a brass player and especially as a classical musician. I've played many Christmas concerts every year since I started playing the trombone and almost all of them have included. sleigh ride sleigh ride. I think sometimes a bit of a controversial topic In that some people you know some people don't love Christmas music. I'm not one of those. People have really love Christmas music. That sounds amazing. So do you just play sleigh. Ride to get prepared for the season or are your neighbors hearing it like year round. I'm sleigh ride every single day. Not Not actually just for the the brass concert. I think there's too much music to play the rest of the year. And then you guys also also have a percussion and I remember. I played sleigh ride once and I remember the Santa's Sleigh like the slap like the whip the whip that's what the official name the whip another piece that. I'm really looking forward to on this on. This concert is Arrangement that our principal trombone bone Tim Higgins just made of the duke. Ellington version of Tchaikovsky's nutcracker suite the Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky Super Famous ballet a classic holiday hit everybody loves it And there's a really fantastic do Ellington Big Band Jazz. Big Man adaptation adaptation of it. and Tim made really cool arrangement of this for our brass section So we won't have saxophone. We'll have you know French horns and trumpets and trombones and we'll have our principal basis Scott Pringle and our principal percussionist. Jake Nestle on that and will be blowing some improvised Solos and an and swing and real hard. That is like I love Sleigh ride and I I really love everything. Christmas music like every genre of Christmas music I absolutely love but like jazzy. Big Band Dan. Christmas is one of my favorite things to so. That's that's going to be really really really fun. I'm looking forward to that one a lot. Absolutely I after you said there's a arrangement. I got really excited about that. I'm so this'll be the first time that is performed. The World Premiere Performance of that arrangement. That is so cool. I wish that we could play it. Now play the original on the most say imagine this but even better yes but even more arranged yes awesome okay. Why do you think holiday brask comes back year after year and we all love it so much It's basically I would say like a staple like Santa or Christmas tree. I mean I'm biased as a brass player. But I think that there's there's like a lot of different genres onerous Christmas music and like we do a lot of them at the symphony like we're doing handel's Messiah. We did the past couple of nights Like a Gospel Christmas concert with with this Amazing Gospel Choir. The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir and Brian McKnight. And we're also going to play love actually with the film. And there's there's like all and then there's the nutcracker and then there's the Ellington Nutcracker there's like Charlie Brown Christmas there's like all these different sectors of of Christmas music and Christmas culture and I think that while brass music is its own sector of music period. We kind of like really come out to play around Christmas. There's something about brass brass instruments playing Christmas carols. That just feels really right. If you haven't heard brass ensemble before it is a really marvelous sound. It's warm and bright and shining and I think it's really. It's really beautiful. There's a lot of variety in the show like older classical music like Baroque music musically. The chorale that we're playing sounds really just absolutely stunning their moments of incredible beauty in concert. That made me feel like there's like fireplace place Christmas and I think we're going to get that in the corral and then you know there's also you know the Joan Tower Fanfare for the uncommon woman which is like bombastic on Bass tick sound like you know glorious Militaristic fanfare like pay attention to this. That's something the brass can do but jazzy Christmas is also something in that holiday. Brass can do and anybody can make Christmas music. There are a lot of like special things about brass playing Christmas music. I I just I really love it. It's like really one of my favorite things to do as trombone player. Is this concert so you have a lot of different kinds of mashups from old to new Christmas. Music can on different ways. That brass gets involved. Tell us how maybe someone who doesn't know a lot about all the going on inside a brass ensemble. Well how do we tell the difference between the instruments. I think that the brass instruments are pretty easy to tell apart. There aren't that many of them will just start from from the low. Oh the big one is the big daddy of the brass section is the Tuba. You'll definitely not Tuba. The next biggest is the trombone. And that is you know. In my humble opinion opinion the the greatest and within within the trombone family there are a few other subcategories. There's the Bass trombone tenor trombone which is like what you think of. When you think trombone that's tenor trombone? The Bass trombone is like the big hairy older brother of the tenor trombone that can play like low fat low notes like this. And then there's the Alto trombone which People love to make jokes about like. Did you put your trombone in the dryer because it looks like a tenor trombone except it's a little bit smaller and it can play a little bit higher above the trombone. Is the French French horn. Because there's lots of pipes in the French horn. French horn is actually a very very long instrument. But it's like all wrapped up And if you're thinking about what a Christmas this mystery ornament brass instrument would look like like. You're thinking French horn. Although my mother does have trombone ornament as well in case anybody cared about that I care about that cared about my mom's on Christmas tree. Yes if she had just a French horn and not a trombone. She wouldn't be a very good mother. I don't think not at all. Yeah not and not very Christmassy no. So that's that's the French Horn and then above. That is trumpet. And you'll see a few different kinds of trumpets on this on this show the there's sort of the normal sized trumpet and that's either GonNa be flat or a C.. Trumpet meaning that the Fundamental Pitch of that instrument is B Flat Orasje Chrissy and they'll be switching between those. You'll also see flugel horns which is like slightly wider bore. The pipes are a little bit wider. And it's more of like an and opens smooth gentle sound like if a normal trumpet is like De Then Afl Horn is more like through. So you think like kind of like the Charlie Brown sector of Christmas like that's more of a Pflueger horn color like a warm bath with with some like nice essential oils mixed extend. That's Flugel Horn. And then. There's the Piccolo trumpet which is like a normal trumpet but smaller and higher and for Baroque music. Like the Corelli our principal and associate principal trumpet players. Mark in away and Erin Schuman. We'll be playing roles as soloists on that on Piccolo trumpets. And that's more like did a bit like that's more of a Piccolo trumpet sound and it's really spectacular. I mean everybody in the brass section is really supreme artist and I've considered a huge honor to work with them. And it's it's really great see mark and Aaron featured as soloists in that Corelli and then how many different types of instruments maybe in the same kind of category in one person responsible for good question trumpet players are going to be switching instruments a little bit more often like on on this one concert. You'll see any of our trumpet players playing B Flat and C trumpet but maybe also eat flat or D. Trumpet as well as Piccolo Trumpet and flew Horn then Most of the time French horn players will play just the Horn unless it sort of specialty thing in which case they might play a desk can't horn. which is you know? It's still the French horn but it's pitched a little bit higher so the pipes will be shorter and you might be able to play high notes more easily with that within the trombone family. It's pretty customary for justice which around a little bit and so tim will be playing. This is Tim Higgins. Our principal trombone player will be playing some Alto trombone on this concert. And then Paul welcome her another wonderful wonderful member of our trombone section. We'll be playing some phony him. Which is an instrument? I forgot to mention a minute ago. which is a member of the family but is often performed by trombone players and it? It's it's just a small Tuba a small Tuba Small Tuba. Wow Yeah I still want to call it the baby to Buffalo. You can if you want to. Does anyone else call it. A baby to A lot of people call it a baby Tuba and what Paul calls it and this is like Paul is hilarious. And he's one of my favorite people on Earth. He refers to it as the iron cello. I'm sure the string players appreciate that Fisher do do you phone him. Is I would say like the Awkward Band Geek of of the brass family and really of music period. People Make Fun of the phone him a lot and it's really satisfying to make fun of volume and people who play it a tiny Tuba tiny Tuba exactly jumbo shrimp And then you're the trombone so you're kind of middle of the pack medium right on the lower end where we were in low brass but yeah like if if you're talking about like Soprano Alto tenor and bass like we're in in the tenor family. I would say well L.. We would love to hear you play so if you wouldn't mind dazzling us with some of your skills and your music we love. That would be happy to aw aw Oh oh oh.

Cops, Kanye, And Candace With Kira Davis

"In a world of fake news we bring you up to the minute factual inaccuracy and heavy dose of moral truths. With your hosts kyle man and Ethan Nicolle. This is the Babylon be fake news you can trust. Our everybody welcome to the Babylon podcast. This is a special episode where we have cured Davis with A. Fan Favourite Freeze time video with Kim I'm so sorry, but. We haven't had a lot of live. We started our video podcast and it has kept so many people away. Yeah I get, plus we live out in the middle nowhere so because. And we want everybody to know that we are all wearing masks. Yeah, but those invisible ones. Green. Green screen having special effects. Put our mouth back optional. Mine is just a a mask of my actual face in the lips are animatronic flesh. You can eat through story about fully compliant. Fully alliant county. That you can eat through, and it was like the Pacman a hawk, and then it would open in the back. Strain. We're done with all this. As a cigar smoking mask? He just put like a whole i. Kind of spirals open. Geez. I've seen one that was. Carrie Washington actress, Carrie Washington's mouth, because she is very well known for her mouth, expressions and I also happen to have completely irrational and unfounded hatred for Carrie Washington as an actress like no reason I know it is, she was in. All and any relation to Denzil. Don't George. I don't. Don't know I didn't know that she's everywhere. I can't stand her as an actress and again it's completely unfounded and totally unfair. To Yeah I have no tatum. So anyway, my friends John, semi. Kerry Washington Mouth Matt's okay. Yeah I have no idea who she is. newbies or listing never seen Django. UNCHAINED is the one that I recognize, but I haven't seen. You haven't seen Jangle. I have never seen A. Winter I've never seen Tarantino Phil. If I were to watch. What should I want? What would be the first holy cow? That is a tough one. What do you think Ethan the Gateway Tarantino? Probably and killed kill bill, I, kind of got like. If felt gratuitous, just think kind of. What is? True me other I've seen about it I. Don't know I'm not as much of a Tarantino like Tarantino. Yeah, but I mean and the other thing is I loved pulp fiction, but it was as a high schooler when I was my tastes horrible so I. Don't know if I watched it again. If it would be as good as I remember being, but it's not I. Watch it a couple of years ago I was. Brand new and Never seeing blew me away and then I watched a couple of years ago and also. I don't know it was the thing that all those weird alternative kids like to two meals. But then again, here's an interesting question. Is it that the movie doesn't hold up, or is it that because it was so groundbreaking? We've seen it done a million times now. True probably true like when when you watch old common. Exactly all the jokes have been done but our. Shopping. It's called The SEINFELD is unfair unfunny effect because people will go back and watch Seinfeld and they'll say oh. Every every Sitcom has done this he. Wants to do it I. You know I guess. So unless you think Seinfeld's funny, you gave me a look there. Now I gave you. The look like I've never heard that froze. Seinfeld is of course the funny. Nor so I figured like taste in. Seinfeld recently because he's been rolling through the net flicks meaning A. Will he refuses to watch friends. He won't do that because because it's problematic. Because all his friends are watching is all his France He's a friends and the, but I told him these through office parks and REC. He's on community now. He's I. Keep telling to move onto scrubs, but Seinfeld is the one thing won't watch more watch. He's like I. Don't have to watch it. I've seen clips of it in his least funding thing I've ever seen. Like what? To horrible thing to say Oh, it was a scratch. Seinfeld or friends? WHO STARTED I'm starting? Seinfeld at the end he he's, he won't watch friends. My friends is kind of the thing that all of the kids are moving out. Because I've never seen Franks historical relic. Some are trashing it as like very problematic, but most are like they've never heard that kind of comedy before. They're not allowed to hear it, so it's actually kind of a Colt Colt reawakening on Netflix with the kids. Getting older comedies are bubbling up because they're probably so inappropriate. Yeah! The office yeah, considered an older comedy. Yeah, right? Yeah, we, we re. Watch the office all the time. Constantly going through the office watch the early seasons like this. Yeah. This is the best show still. Yeah, it's Great I. Don't think it's offensive, and then obviously like the characters are supposed to be bad and like that's the whole point right right and they always think that if you show approving of it, yeah, you know versus saying like this character is a bad person, and that's why they're back, not even allowed to show the people which is going to be really for comedy moving forward. Tell you mock ben ideas in bed behavior. We're not even allowed to create a story, right. Even were not even allowed to. Even have the bad ideas represented in any way like now we're looking at. What's going on in our cities right now with police, brutality and black lives, matter and everything but. The, overreaction has been to. Try to erase every positive representations of police officers in entertainment, and and so even acknowledged that there are such a thing as police officers is. Up. We live in strength. He's coming back y'all. You had to guess. What would it be like? A date would probably be today about. Fifty nine well. No one will see this then because he's coming out. Well, no time data. We now there might be podcast heaven we don't know. We might. Take this. Upload it to the cloud. A. Oh, so you're you're against. Cancelling patrol. Chased. I know many many mothers are very much against it. It is the only thing their children's it still for so now, once you cross suburban mom demographic. Kin- now. They're not going for the thing. Is that chase? The whole thing is it's a it's a private security firm. Like, the patrol tower and stuff, it's just this kid writer that had done all these dog fan fiction writer for popular. This. It's not a city service writer and his pup sitting in their tower, and then we'll go save cop cops like the liberty. It's not really a cop. He's just like a security, though really private security. Off. It's not really real. Tell my four year old. He's getting a little. Oh! I don't know how. We got here We had kind of a plan for some topics, but This is how it is. We love characters. Debit card? Is this is this thing, are we? Recording I'll tell you I told you. Guys this the last time When I was in I. Get the most responses from. appearances on the beat podcast. Well I. Get the most conversions from like to Christianity. But to my podcast, so people will hear me your pockets. My mind I got a lot of letters from people who like I found you on the B, and I wanted to hear more, but but this audience I love. The is something about this audience that translates well. My own audience I love being here and I love chatting with you guys because I think. Like life, there's a lot of different interesting subjects. Yeah to cover, and I also get the talk about it in a way here that I can't. I don't have the same freedom in my political work. Just always be faith based, and that's where I feel all the answers are so I can be honest about that and open about that, whereas other times I have to couch it in. A larger discussion because I'll just get kicked out of the discussion that. You need Jesus or Y'all GonNa L., but. That people don't like it, we. You can talk about hill as much as you want. Go off awesome yeah. Well you some words to say recently about Candice Owens. Is heard yeah. Sure sure. And I got this permitted by some friends. Who Kansas fans did. I saw you shared it and I was curious about it because I was like I. Wonder What Ethan thanks. Technically a friend of the show in the sense that we did interview I don't know Seth's a huge fan. Is Seth advice because I posted I share and I said I didn't say get rid of cantons I said. Less candice more Kiro only to say. We hear from Kansas constantly. And we don't hear from Kerry nearly enough. You need more re tweets and shares, I like your message much more. By saw, seth shared more canvas. The Nation evening. Tag Matt's got the I got the sense of responding to me. Here. To. Pick here. Because I'm sitting here with. Your, mom. I think she's the one who shared your comes. In, so it was I wrote an article for those who don't know about Kansas owns. The other day called the trouble of canvas. been on my mind for a while, but I didn't want to write it or talk about it, because of will really the same reason for all the criticisms. I'm getting right now. Is it like the trouble who? Canceled Kim what I'm here. Oh my gosh back to. China take away. The my favorite isn't trying to strip away. Our First Amendment rights like we're both in opinion, right? We're both in the opinion industries. Literally my job have been. That doesn't mean I'm trying to strip anyone of their first men right? That's the first reaction die-hard conservative trying to watch, we got. Each. I'm just talking twitter censorship, growing more and more comfortable with chemists approach, and some of the things that she's saying the longest been on the scene, but I also believe like a lot of people that conservatives have tendency to eat their own and I want to like. Causing issues the few times I mentioned like even the slightest thing I was attacked and so. This isn't what I want. I I'm not gonNA. Girls out there getting hers good for her. Son of my business, but as we've clearly devolved into this the current situation more in the nation, it's become more and more clear to me that. Reasonable voices and healing voices need to step forward because we have some work to do to fix all this, and that's the only reason I've ever done what I do. In the political realm of OAS had an idea that black. Americans, have can have more access to prosperity more access to success education the American dream. By by maybe diverting off of this path, we've been following for last sixty seventy years voting the same way with no results and I believe that conservative values have the ability to provide prosperity. That's why I'm conservative quote. Activism able call me. And so in that respect, I have felt that Kansas voice wasn't helpful because it typically. She leads with tearing black people, down. In Stat of. I'm listening. I'm hearing solution. And then here are my points anyway. What inspired me to write? It was stage spouse video the other day that he dropped. I don't think we can call it. Comedy Yeah. It was commentary, and He talked about her the not very nicely, but he brought her up. And it was the first time that I really thought my producer from my podcast. Just listen to yourself. Was Here Davis Texted me. The videos gotTa Watch. This and I was like you know what maybe it's time for some other voices to step forward and tell people like Dave Chapelle. We're not all saying the same things I hear you. There are some solutions to be had here from the right, and from the left and and. Not. All of us think canvas is on the same page. And I would say probably the majority of black conservatives are. Feel like I do. We've never felt free. To. Do. Become you, spokesperson. Weird what was mentioned having a white spokesperson? We need to get out of that whole idea that you need. You know that you're all yeah Kansas Owens. Nobody walks up and he goes. Oh, yeah, Sean, Hannity, or whatever right? And if they did, it'd be like. No, no I would be writing the trouble with Sean. Hannity immediately log the next day. We'll. We'll hit. You got the need to pop the collar a little more up. So what I saw candidate viral thing. I didn't watch it well. What was she talking about? What was scandalous? Which one? You responding to something. Dave Chapelle. Because He. was saying was that so you're responding to response to a response? Basically, this is all talks. All this is the main thing he said about it was. She's the most articulate. Idiot would raise words. And I actually disagreed with that I don't think she's particularly articulate, articulate, I think that she has a lot of talking points, some of which have merit by the way. which you know, some of the things, I say as well, she quotes a lot of statistics that are true. She's not lying about those things. But what I see is a young woman who was thrust into the spotlight. Perhaps before she was ready, she doesn't have and she was a new convert also conservative. Yeah, so she doesn't have the. Base of knowledge to back up her points, or to have a debate or discussion about okay, here's this number, but here's why this number is a problem or how we can fix this number. She doesn't have the knowledge to discuss. Those issues suffer instance. She did a forum with A lot of people treat a pearson. Whose trump's on trump's blackout reach team and a friend of mine? Ti, the rapper, ti killer, my like a bunch of pop culture personalities, her Katrina, and I can't remember. There's another black conservative on there. I can't remember, but it was I watched the whole thing, and it was difficult to watch because. Ti! An amazing producer and a very intelligent businessman, but he's in around that he doesn't necessarily. Understand he's not saying the most engaging intelligent things, but even what he was saying she couldn't really respond to. For me. It was painful to watch because I was like. Oh well, she's starting with the points making the point, she couldn't elaborate. She just got eaten alive. So. Better regurgitating than. For now again. It might just be that she's young and near for now, but but anyways I wrote the article not to take apart she and s and I understand that it came. Off like that I. Don't know that there is a way that it could. Everything's taken our right Oh. Does your take on that side now? I decided I wrote not to do that, but I wrote it to say that for those of us. Who are who are in this business to actually? Find Solutions to actually reflects I think of myself as a writer mirror of what's going on. She's making it difficult for us to go into our communities and make the case for conservatism which I do believe is best way out of poverty and and traditional. Oppression for the black community. and she's got this blood that movement, but. I don't think that it's really aims at persuasion. Different personality types, there are people within the black community that respond to her style and I don't think it's many a mini I think a lot. My suspicion is a lot of the black people that I see like with her at the White House and rent hats and. Lot of them were already conservatives. So, they've already had their own awakenings. I'm not saying that she should be doing it or whatever, but. In the article, and I noticed awkward, but I just have to. put it out. There gotta be honest and I said this article. We're a massive platform, so get ready. For the blowback. Get, lack comments, and this is all her to be. Kylie. Sorry continue if I look at WHO's responding most. The candice's appeals is might people. Black boy, so when I so if we're talking about who your audiences. To do. It's something to think about. If I have a criticism for candice I've got one black person might timeline in a million white people. But most of us in the black conservative community are offline. texting or having phone calls resuming like we talk all the time about this. We're not comfortable, and maybe that's not her fault. Maybe it's the audiences fault. She's been lifted up to that. We sorry. Now. She's like a superstar. This prager event choose to signing autographs and just. Like you know the kid there was junior hires at our table with young girls. They care about anybody Jordan. Peterson walks by some guy you this progress there now Ronald. Reagan walks by. All of a sudden. They're out. They want autographs it. Didn't even seem like know just shoes on the Internet a lot. Well, we have spur. You can't assume. Here next room. That'd be amazing. If we had prepared a lot of. Why don't you reach out to candice mental workers and it's like it's not my obligation to get along with every other black person you know like it's not my obligation to mentor her. And her just because I'm black. Like imagining that to me when you reach out in their mentor to Sean Hannity. The white conservative pundits. All the time. One telling them. Why don't you just get along? You're on the same side. It's like we're not babies and we're not arguing. She's not even arguing with me. I don't even know who I am not arguing with me at all. As, far as I know, I'm not even on her radar, so, but it's just disagreement. This isn't rage. This isn't. Division this is disagreement, but there is a sense on the. That those of us on the right who are black are not allowed to disagree with each other which is. Infanta Izing Yeah Total? So dumb, so you wouldn't describe her as clean and articulate. I mentioned in the article. He did yeah I. Say how people describe her as articulate a lot in makes me cringe because. PEOPLE SHARE BOATSWAIN'S A. This is really smart. SMART, they'll say how smart you. Are here so many white conservatives described as articulate, and it makes me cringe I find reminiscent of how white liberals condescendingly fond all over Obama as articulate. It wasn't that Abidin that called him clean and articulate yeah. Quote. It's really bad. It gets worse than. Ever gets better, but. Yeah, so I I again, I. I feel like maybe Donaldson too much time talking about canvas. I don't I don't don't have any ill feelings towards her or I don't think she's dumb, and I'm not like other. Some people think she's grafter and I'm not in that Camp I. Think she's a new convert. Like when I first became. A Christian and I didn't know much about the Bible and I didn't know much about. The arguments are the Bible. Yeah. I was like went home and told my mother that if she didn't believe in Jesus, she was going to help. was like not because I wanted to go to. How, but it was because I wasn't mature enough in my feet. To know how that looked. And the lead with grace, not lead with punishment, and I I I don't think it helps the caw, the cause of racial reconciliation MP's if were, if our rhetoric is always inflammatory, I don't know how that is winning over black communities I want black communities. Come over to the conservative side. Start trying to implement conservative values in their in their policies and politics in black communities. That's what I want I think he. He even goes beyond raised like whenever if we go to conservative conference or we see people, you know it's always like these young people that the elevate yeah, to be like the phaser supply and demand exciting I. Don't know if attractive young people so the ones they can find like elevate him up, and like they hardly have even thought through the arguments making these dumb in the rest rating. The church does it to. A young pastor and it's like well. He hasn't been seminary. Anything just got converted last week. Yeah make him worship leader yeah. It's exciting. We'd like to see these young people that of us because we think it invalidates us. Yeah, you know or something, and maybe the race thing just adds on that a little a really makes I think the leadership often if they really jazz up the old people in the crowd and they people like Oh. We're doing it. We'll give us some money. I, it's all. It's not a dubious like they're. They're not doing it to get the money. It's just. Maybe sometimes they are. I think there's just A. I don't I. Don't know what it is cynical, lame! Lame Conservatives don't want to be. Lame Churches don't be lame lame. Walk. But everybody no one wants to be. Rejected and so when you're embraced by a culture that whether that culture is view for a different ethnicity, or whatever, when embraced by that, there is a certain seduction in as well. I think that's why a lot of conservatives tend to get really excited when celebrity say turn. Bail and the mobile is like just this person alone, don't. Plan the fact they were always like. We don't care what celebrities right until they. Say on your concern. I knew that was going to happen the client. came out and was like trump. I was like Y'all conservatives leave it alone. Leave him alone. Stop writing articles about them. Stop holding him up as a stop posting. Videos about him I, mean he? He released a concept album last year before. And it it has church album right. I love you. All white conservatives listener at. A set old. This is so good that never listen to any economies music ever and slowly like this is so good and I'm like you all are going to drive him away. He will be a spokesperson for these values because it's cringing. Does concerts changed like the demographic? So there's always. Elderly Folks Interesting. And? That's what happened between him and Kansas she got way too excited about him. Because he bloom spot fair enough I would have been. Yeah blockers to yeah, but I kept thinking the whole time every time I would see their videos together or her talk about him I think she should be very careful. She certain sound like she's attaching herself to him and that's going to drive him away because he's an entertainer is not a politician is not a politician and she's in politics. That's exactly what happened she he. He was like I. Don't like this I'm not comfortable with this some. Myself from this I, learned the girls took me until I was like yeah, in my thirty S. Still a little clean with your wife to be. True, married her and we need to think of some white super, eighty. We need to find some white musician that we can. A can burn to know that we can convert and then Scott Status as Like liberal or Whatever and then they convert them. Wipe person that like musician or I? Don't know that once again I like when you make. White! HOW WEIRD IT IS! It doesn't make any sense about. Dion like we can vary. Cling to her and claiming. She sharing our posts and of these guys make a lot of sense. She's like I really liked the way the Babylon be thinks. That was the poster around the world anyway. Candice no Hartfield okay. It's not a big deal. It was something that needs to be needed to be set, and by the response I think it did and then, and then that's that I. Don't have an obsession them not here take now. Candice I'm all her though him for hers. You Talk Oh sorry. So you're talking about not wanting to be lame. I have a thirteen year old. You have an eighteen year old I have an eighteen year old man. That's soon to be thirteen year. Okay, see we're in some. Some of the same boat and I have a ten year old, so he's just kind of getting into this stuff but So I thought I should do a portion called respond to my thirteen year. Olds argument great great, can this? On a minute is all of a sudden. It's try it. This is the first time. The honor, so she is all in on. Her name's Lily by the way She's you know she's passionate? She's compassionate. But she's also got the Internet. Is a fire hose and now general before you go on. One last year you were you were a little bit iffy about social media for her. What was the decision? Eli came down on for that. If I mean, we wanted to trust as much as possible, so we pretty much let her have her instagram account now that she's older to see thirteen. That's kind of age. We said she'd be able to have it. we. This private at thirteen, which yeah so as long as strangers can't contact her as long as just. Friends shouted, so that's. Just friendlier she does. Okay. I ask you this because I think a lot of these questions are probably coming from instagram TIKTOK. regurgitating stuff that I know that I don't WanNa. Be Condescending. No, no, no. I know that she's watched videos and she saying things I've never like for instance one of the first thing she said was. Much I don't think she's ever thought about. Building is having insurance, but. Sure if you're more worried about. These buildings being destroyed, they have insurance. Okay, it doesn't matter that the real issue is the black people are being killed right? Okay, so you know. I've never talk like that like that's okay, but that's what to. Valid or an idea? Or discussion. You're having at the dinner tables. What you're saying. My wife had that one oh, God. It's interesting times I. I'm so interested in hearing what Lily thinks love to respond okay so. She started off to everyone but white sis. Gendered men have gotten their opinions heard through protesting and riots. It's part of American history. What's happening right now? Okay? Yes, I agree that protesting is not only a traditional way to get your voice heard. It's also protected in the First Amendment, yes, riding is not and rioting, destroying the property and blood, sweat and tears of others, so at thirteen, Willie might not be able to. Know because she doesn't have the life experience that goes into building your own business what goes into buying that piece of property that you put a Taco Bell or Kentucky Fried Chicken, which looked like franchises to you, but are actually owned by individual business owners who pay a franchise fee, and so that business on her. It's very true might have insurance, but the way insurance works is that it won't typically cover the full loss. Most people who get hit will lose their businesses. Many of those people are minorities. Women Owners Single Moms, and then what? What do you do from there? So it's it's one thing to be out in the streets China to be heard, and that's what Dave Palestine and. His Comedy standup his thing. His Hannah Gadsby ish thing. is on comedy. That's probably the best way to put it. He was saying this is the streets talking I've said that to on my podcasts. Don't dismiss the voice of people just because it's not saying what you wanted to say. That's how we got trumpet twice. Seen people dismiss the voice of the people, so those people went to the ballot box. So, it's imperative lillies right? It's imperative that we remember that people need to be heard, but people don't have the right to destroy each other to destroy our hard-earned property our hard earned work, and we don't have the right to take things from each other and so You know just. Be Cognizant of that and don't break other people's things. You know that's one of the first lessons you learn. And there's not a lot of forethought in these riots now no one's going to black owned businesses are Asian owned businesses and going. Hey, are you black? Along. That's not what's happening. By the way some of these riots have completely shelled out. There, they're happening in majority black areas they shell out the neighborhoods destroy these lack home businesses, and then all of the writers leave, and who's left. Pick up the pieces. It's the people there in. Horrible, so I appreciate Willy's. Point of view that protesting does bring change I do believe that we absolutely should that goes all the way back. I mean especially when something this. Certainly not. There's a difference between protesting Ryan. I just want to say that. We have a combination TACO BELL KFC. This because this is America right on the street. Contrast Fazli. Tuck. What's the difference between the riots in like the Boston Tea Party, where they're? Destroying stuff because they threw stuff in the thing, they did their stuff in the thing. Water, the thing water staff and went in the thing the Boston harbor right. They did, but what they didn't do is then destroy the entire harbor. They need harbor. So it was like targeted were protesting against us one thing, so we're putting the team harbor making a big teapot in yeah I guess yeah I guess the overall question. What would be the equivalent today if these protests just went to the police station and like? Protested the Minneapolis police station like is it equal to? Police station. Way Throwing t and the higher I would you know I don't hard. Out Is. I don't know that it's. Really Great comparison. Well, things are destroyed. As was planned right? This is more like people to protest and other people go, and then there's just kind of just becomes like A. Rage and rebellion think some. It seemed like there was some planning going with certain groups. And stuff absolutely want to read Lily's nets okay. Let's see. Said there are? White supremacist escalating these causing the riots. it's police shooting, tear gas and rubber bullets that are making it worse. you should have a degree. Oh, so she's in. You should have a degree to be a policeman by Dr. you'd have to like almost like a PhD to be a cop okay. and I wonder if I don't know if lily knows what it takes to be a police officer, so I guess if she was. We all kind of guests and we didn't. She knew her I. If I was sitting in front of her. I would just say we'll tell me what it takes to be police officer, and how that you know how we can improve that? That's a question. I'll ask I'll have the answer to either and then also I would. I would say that I would ask like what is the What is the line? How far do if the police are? We're talking about a few bad apples. In an institution that we absolutely need I'm going to make an assumption here about Lillian and you guys and your lives. It's my suspicion new have never really lived in a place where you depend desperately on the police to be there when you. Probably me more than her, because I grew up in a very poor area of Morgan, the respond pound known for its meth usage, and there's a lot of crime So, we had called cops a couple of times. You have stolen yard so that. I never encountered murdering like that, but there I know that there was happened regularly but yeah I grew up in a different culture than my kids are up and grew up in I grew up and low income housing. In a little dingy neighborhood, churches bring us food. My Dad's homeless, so yeah, so she but yeah her. Cintra same for my hits, also by the way but. I tend to think that that is a point of view that comes from people who have never had to live in an area where the police are sometimes the only thing standing between you and absolute ruin or death, so there are few bad apples, but that doesn't mean that the institution of Policing Bat and police officers aren't a uniform. They're people, too. And so if there are people throwing things trying to set them on fire, trying to beat them up there. People trying to hurt innocent people I would ask to go. Look at some of the videos of people getting beaten in the street something death. It are the police are? Are the police supposed to to stand by their? Sometimes? Violence has to be combated with violence. That's the only way I I lived in an area. That's why actually pro second amendment to to this day when I used to be very anti gun, because I lived in an area where it was very dangerous, and I was alone with two kids. My husband was off here in California for work. For four months, and was just me and the kids and the medal of the hood, and we're having a rash of violence. Break Ins on our street like the kind where they were taking old people and driving them into the street and beating them to Paul. Who's terrible and so that was when I realized. Okay I have to be able to protect myself, but there has to be some kind of law and order because if we aren't. If we are committed to protecting each other from violence. Then that's chaos. That's anarchy and. A free society cannot operate on anarchy. You can't. I don't know she knows any cups. Personally I know I grew up because I grew up in some of my friends became cops and new cops, and there's a few people I know who? Very well. There were cop so. At least helps humid. Humana fi fi sure that's humanity. United States humanized. Sell Smarter. With the stuff in the thing, Hey, what we human is! Would, also thank you for for light, but the underlying sentiment of that is that it's hurting her to see. People speaking up and being seeming like they're being punished for that, but but that's actually not what's happening there? People in the streets are protesting and there are people in the streets are riding their different people yeah. You see just some of the footage of like I mean buildings are burning. People are being beaten up. There's things rocks being thrown. It's mayhem and I I haven't heard of I assume. There have been some cop shooting actually shooting people I mean. I'm kind of amazed at the. The amount of. Restraint straight yeah. Another words well. We're witnessing. Now is a lot of officers just refusing to go. Yeah, yeah, and I don't. Wants to be a cop right now know that. Truly a special person. If you want to be a cop right now now, you're going to be held accountable for everything when your job is life threatening every day I just. And cops are people. Let's remember every. This is one of my appeals in the racial reconciliation conversation that I'm always having. Is that we when we stop looking at the other person, whoever the other person is the COP, your neighbor, your classmate when we stop looking at that conservative and liberal who stop looking at that person as a human being as a purposefully created human being who has value totally outside of whatever their political views are whatever their background was. Once we stop looking at that person's a human being then we have necessarily precluded ourselves from being a part of the solution, because we're other rising the people that were supposed to be bonding with that were supposed to be finding solutions with together. Police are part of our community to when the find solutions with them, not against them. If every human being the world could axel get stuck on an elevator for a couple of hours. Trapped and they'd have to get to know each other. Just rotate out. We all do it. The world would have perfect harmony, probably reality sharply, Zaire. Probably probably as theory I don't know. Is that a reality show? That's a great. Eleven I. Would love to rally shore. They set up. Like Ben, Shapiro and like who's like a far left. You know somebody like bill. Maher or something I guess they'd they'd probably actually can reasonably. Yeah get traffic the elevator for twelve hours and transgendered teenager or something. The like people you WanNa. See what happens. and He'd absolutely clobbered. Can't you can't come out until their friends? Oh Jeez. I mean there's some truly awful people. Attended everyone's being, but some beings are grocer. What Hitler Yeah? What about his Hitler saying that elevator with Hitler? He probably have some funny stories now my lower back. On black lives matter all in. She's all in also my ten year old son, all in the T shirt. Yes, my daughter Tom Board that happens to be buck, and and if you're not all in your aces so great. So we've SAT. You make of that yeah. We've sat up your at least fifty percent black at least. Look. Again. I would hearken back to what was saying earlier. which is once we stop looking at people as people and start looking at them. Label whether that label is gay whether the labels suburban housewife whether that label is black or white. Who We when we when we? Bestow people will labels. We make it harder to view them as people so. I think not the heart of lily being all in and your son and my daughter. which might have gets a lot of these ideas from talking to instagram I tried to avoid politics her home. I wanted to find her own way, but. I'm realizing other people are going to be talking to her about this anyway, so I've got to jump in there and take the lead, I think the the sentiment behind it is. I. Came here I want to see equality and that I like. But again there there is a difference between saying hey. I believe that we haven't been. Compassionate enough towards black lives in American politics and I WANNA change that I want to be part of the solution. There's a difference between saying that and saying that. If you don't see everything the way I see it then you are inherently. Were setting up some very dangerous dichotomies here, moving forward because the thing is is that your lily will find out as she grows up. She will not be able to escape that tie that category as well when her kids get to be your age in. She will be the WHO's out of step with culture right now. It seems inconceivable to her and to us, even the like. How much further can we go? It seems evens evil, but that is just the nature of time of progression of time. She will be the intolerant one at some point so. You have to understand that the rules you set up for other people. Lilly will be the rules that will apply to you as well and the subject won't always be the same when you get older you, you might be like you're on the right side of this. Black lives matter thing thing, but we may have shipped it all the way to something else, and you can't get on board with that then you'll be evil so I think it's. Good advice for all the rules we set up will apply to us as well. What about those adults that? They're fully on board with whatever the fat is at the moment, and they're all the way till like mid seventies or whatever? I don't know like. Same. In the current fans, whatever the current one is! And then they jump they lily pad from whatever the they they. They live that life. I. Don't trust those people. People beginning example I'm trying to think what you're talking about you should never. Master still skateboarding and wearing vans, and stuff or just you know. An adult, who they kind of just their opinions and their politics, just kind of our. Whatever is different. You will everyone every ten years. If you check in with them. They've changed it to whatever it is them like delegates rare, but there are yeah sure it's. Mostly very mature adults yet, and you're always gonNA. Get caught in that trap. You always get caught in it the it'll never be enough. We're watching it now. We're watching people being forced to apologize for things like even because of Lily's saying hearing, you know. Hey, if you're not all the way, then you're not on board at all. And in life was full of nuances and middle ground and grey area. That's the human. The human race and Not Everything in the world is like it is here in Ontario. Not every other place in the world is like this place, California, or the United States. There's a lot of gray area. There's a lot of culture and history that we don't understand at some point. Everyone gets trapped in that and. That's that's why it's so important that we have to understand that the rules we set up for other people or going to all going to have to adhere to those rules at one point or another. So do. Do you want the rule to be the golden role, or do you want the rule to be and the Golden Rule of courses? Love THY neighbor as yourself and love the Lord your God with all your heart, but or do you want the rule to be? Whatever society says at that moment is good. That's the side you're on. Through history, and when has that ever been? Like I. Want on pretty much. Every fad of the time has been wrong I mean. That's one thing that. I think that's one reason we cling to the Bible. Because it's a book that was written over thousands of years and holds to the truths that stuck to all that time believes wisdom is a real thing that God created and put into. The Earth into the integration. What is more helpful a rule then? All Right forget everything else. Love your neighbor as yourself. Like what that does, how do you improve on that how you can't? You cannot improve on that concept. That covers everything that covers. Every sin, and let's remember that racism is sin. And Sin as a heart problem, not a society problem, and that's why people don't like here because everyone wants to easy fix. Your message. Yeah, it's it's here. All right well well. Thanks cars excellent. One! for later for later saver later I'm hungry, so let's go have so much to instill them down. Piece. Did she get a chance to. Did you like. Promote all your stuff.

"In a world of fake news we bring you up to the minute factual inaccuracy and a heavy dose of moral truth with your hosts kyle man and Ethan Nicolle. This is the Babylon be fake news. You can trust welcome to the first ever public. Babylon video videotaped taped podcast videotape twitter years tape. Vcr movies now. This is available on Betamax and LASERDISC. Oddly naked feeling knowing that the Internet can see us now. We haven't posting videos to our subscribers. Might put some of those but this is our first official episode. Then it's a little bit different episode because it's Mother's Day special guest here. We have a special guest guest host My Mom Diane. Mom You can make your mom jokes anymore. Yeah may have to wait till she leaves and then later on she's going to be our interviewee along with my mom's coming on. Ethan's mom who had to SKYPE IN AMAZING. The Sky Point will the skype went. Fine Yeah better than I guess. We Act smells than didn't go so well so we talk MOMS this. I I just wanted you know. I'm sorry that you all had mental images of what we looked like and I know that we're shattering that right now. We had one email that said that. They thought that I was a giant muscular guy with red hair and not all kind of reddish hair. They picture these giant but some braveheart warrior. Yeah like giant muscles and read my voice cracks all the time you think they would. Why would they get that image? You're always talking about punching and stuff. Yeah lets you talk about Masculinity? Talk a big game underneath all this. There's a very masculine guy somewhere somewhere underneath all these layers emotion and love and love. So yeah we'll everybody. This is a podcast where recovered the news. And we do that by reading you Bible stories which is the most accurate way to get coverage just kind of this is how people get their news and some people do and they'll sorry for how we encourage you to get the news so dive in To some weird news or no no. No we're diving into stuff. It's good stuff that's good but now this week's edition of stuff. That's good so my stuff. That's good this week is good disco broad things well. I could recommend a very specific disco exact disk but I would recommend Novas Star destroyer okay. That's my favorite disc. Sounds violent. Also the champion T-bird by Nova beginner disk? And I recommend my parents actually got me a disc golf basket for Christmas or my birthday or something and so I like having that out in the yard and I just go putt anyway. So this is this is kind of people are returning to outside And they're starting to experience the sunshine and everything and discover great because it is socially distant. You're out there are kind of in the middle of this core spire self. It's pretty much free. It's out of all the sports. It's like one that cost basically nothing. You get a disc for ten bucks at Big Five and you're good. You can play the whole course with certain discs like the champion T-bird bird I mentioned or the shark. The INOVA SHARK IS GREAT DISK. And it's such a great community because a lot of sports you have to go in and you have to be really good and this one. It's like you don't can you like kind of throw Frisbee you can play disco and have a good time so I recommend finding your local disk. Of course they are usually free once in a while if they're like County Park Regional Park. It'll cost a little bit but it's a great way to spend time with your family. Take your kids out. People of all ages can enjoy it. You can smoke weed while you do it. You know I just. This is my smoking injecting as we talked about. Or whatever however you math browning I don't know what you do with that. That's why I have never done methodist know anything about anything about myth but anyway yeah I recommend. Take your family using disk off. It's a great way to spend some time and disco really like I don't get it. It's almost like surfers like this. Like they have this lust about it. But it's such a hard course but password. My thing I'm recommending is a bluegrass band which they're considered new graph because there are newer bluegrass band. It's like and you knew he gets like new metal new mental But they're called crooked still and a lot of the like bluegrass of now heard of them. And if you've ever heard of Alison Krauss. She has a glorious voice. I'm sure most people for some cross. The singer of this group has that kind of silky like glorious voice and It's just like it's so good at this woman named Ika O'Donovan she's I believe Irish anyway. Crooked still wants them nice strings and the I would listen to him. Sincere very just happened to get it on my desk. And it's like in my early twenties but They're on spotify in highly recommend. Mom Do you have anything you'd like to recommend? This is where we give kind of a free piddly free advertisement something to serves. We didn't prep her on this. So yeah we been enjoying walking the various neighborhoods around our homes walking dead so we've gone all directions about a mile each direction and going through the neighborhoods and concluded. We have really good neighbors. Because there's some people like big trucks that are playing music outside their houses things that make them undesirable tests. But it's been fun to just explorer. We have a little cabin in the mountains where we walk. And just look at the different cabins. We always do that up there. But never just in Chino walking the neighborhoods. Walking walking is good. Maybe if you're really extreme park or you could extreme walking her. It's good now. Yeah list has been stuff. That's good this news is weird real stories that actually. Um You wanna read the first one first headline their underwear news. Police in India revealed device to detain corona virus lockdown. Violators without contact.

There's been all these employment check mix up so we're sending checks to people that are all these aren't really dead but it turns out there actually is a guy named to pox occur in his Where he lives in the guy was upset is okay.

Wow you should have been a newscaster. Mom is very proud of that dad. Momma did it. I guess. Book of World Records and forty three to forty three times the wet sponge so we could take forty four and get into the Guinness. I guess we need some certain amount of time. Do they really hurt? Is that why it's point blank? Hit the video just throwing spongy. His face face shot this guy just in it for the fame. And it's like you didn't do anything hard to get in the book of Guinness Records said Pathetic. Sad not good all. Let's move into our battle on be stories of the week every week. There are stories. These are some of them. Inspiring with Americans feeling the financial pressure of millions of jobs lost celebrities have joined together to bring hope to the nation by spelling. We're all in this together out with their yachts while that's really amazing and had to take a lot of coordination but I'm GonNa get all their yachts and right exact spot. Yeah and they spelled it right. They probably had to pay their servants money to navigate them and having the yachts yeah the celebrities pretty amazing talent generis being the possibility in. We're besides appreciating that there is an apostrophe and here that was fun is that in the article. I wrote the article. Yeah and I don't remember Photoshop. So the fun thing was there was people that Israel. It's one got mistaken and I mean there's really only like four yachts and the whole tray is lots of copies and also like if you look at one of them has a giant shadow and all the ones don't it should be really obvious that it's not real but it looks like it's like floating on the water and my favorite people look at it and go like they act like they're sleuths like zoom in on clearly photoshop to the detail mailing a little red circle uncertain spot. See you can tell. Wow good job got been fun seeing them not on their stage though. I know we're kind of sick of them preaching to us but just things to from their living room without Megan and they don't have laugh audience. Slap Bill Maher. He looks like he's squirming on some of those news on there. Yeah the studio audience because all you have to do is kind of nodded his audience so he wants them to all interrupt funny talking to you or no. It's if the guy starts to make a point that I talked about this already in the show. I can't remember. We talked about it. I don't remember if we talked about it. I interviewed Dan Crenshaw Eye Patch Guy Crenshaw. Was schooling him hard on everything and if they were in the studio he could have like if crenshaw made a good point he just do his little thing it does is like killing non. We're on video thing. Yeah yeah he's Nydia seals can't do now he just goes like this and like there's nobody crooked and still dropping and he's like truth on him he's calling in the made. Can you come get me my seals. So here's some people thought it was real. Yeah there's some real tweets one person tweeted. No we are not in this together there in on with WHO giving their millions to it instead of helping all poor and homeless. La and they were responding to a tweet. That's don't forget the celebrities they got together to share this inspiring message with their yachts and then thankfully another China and said this is a photoshop. Pick from the Babylon parody. Website ruined all the fun. The guy goes in all caps completely out of touch and then someone replied to that if we always in this together then we all would have yachts and fake. Lives like they do and then one of my favorites. This woman says they are clueless. Saying right now that we're all in the same storm but we're not all in the same boat but we really we really are not all in the same boat because some people's both their way bigger than other people have servants on their boat Do you want to read one of these The thought it was real. You see that one from Mel there. I don't see one from now know we're GONNA win. Deplorable no I think it's meant to be an insult. They mean we as in the the elite minority are in on the scam. That's just how I think I'm just saying that's just how I think is in there. A percentage of people that just don't do not get satire. It's a inherited trait thing to forty percent. Just do not understand this when this person has got some of those conspiracy theories going on here and then they feel like this article validates them soon. Army anyone to funny can't wait till these lively nuts distribute their wealth demonstration their commitment to a call for such stars almost blinds me with their brilliance. What's not to love? Just ignore the minor detail. Cannibalism and adrenal chrome. Look at those lovely yacht sentiment touching. So this guy goes or it's a woman goes straight to cannibalism and adrenal chrome. You heard this series conspiracy theories the conspiracy consider the conspiracy that these celebrities they harvest fetuses or babies to suck out some chemical from their brains to create adrenal chrome which is a drug that they all feast on in makes them. Mike Golic superhuman so they can be super famous. There's real people believe this. My my wife has friends Friend that's like a. It's really the people talking about this. We're probably never let me. Look legit man you are upsetting commoner and finally I. That's not Malibu second you can see. You can't see what's being spilled over the water unless you're flying overhead third. Those morons couldn't coordinate something like this. Who would weep over? This is Hollywood trying to play again. Yup Service person thinks that Hollywood put this out. So what are the best responses to this because we did include a patent Oswald in the In the story because this is kind of response to partially responsible his tweets right. It was just making fun of the General Hollywood response. The response is really really bad. Tweet where he said something like. Oh you people. That are protesting for the lockdown end. And you just want to go to fund yeah you just wanted to go to the NBA fat pig at rutgers or something right and the swearing. When I say that we're fun so so he was being a little rucker about it. A little bit of Elmer Fudd rocker and our record. While we're men rucker yeah and What the heck I thought. I had the tweet in the article. We mentioned patent Oswald who his boats out there to form newsletters and he saw and he responded to was and he responded in the. We have the tweet right here. I'll do we will show it. They'll have to be some words crossed out but he basically said that the tweet was very funny. He said I kind of regret that tweet I did. And he's like yeah. These disagree with me about it but it's a good job so he took it. Well we appreciate what I like about. It is he probably doesn't realize that we're conservative. Humor site and so that moment. Where like he probably didn't maybe did. I really curious but Yeah who knows? And if he hadn't everyone come on her show totally. Have you on our show canceled? Get canceled while trying to find the tweet now. I couldn't get all right all right. Move onto our next door next story at a preliminary hearing to establish evidence in the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden. A federal judge dismissed all charges after the revelation that he was not a democrat. That's good for him. Yeah Sometimes there's like you need like a lot of evidence and then there's somebody who's been fish and then all other times you don't need a lot of 'cause we did this that he was not a Republican. Did I say wrong? He is a Democrat. I'm GONNA take that. I might have taken the joke. Not Work at all. That was like crickets headline not this or not. Yeah I think about it for a long time. Does that make sense? Because I can't think through. The negative is a Democrat is a Democrat. Got It yeah. Anyway you guys get the joke. You GotTa think some of these people that have been put behind bars for this kind of stuff like Weinstein Epstein. They probably realized too late. If I told the judge they just got up there and said woman. I'm a Democrat. Oh I'm sorry for office as a Democrat so I'm sorry Sir right this way. And they would just free right on the spot. So it's a bummer. That they did. Yeah I mean it's so like to watch what happened with cavenaugh that was definitely very opening and then to see this like it's just the exposition's it's so like in your face that This is why the media just completely not trusted this point but everybody. Who's WHO's shouting about Cabinet silent now. It's partisanship it happens. From both sides this is pretty glaring example on the other side. Yeah Mom your thoughts. I was thinking she wants to people together. She wants to unify. Okay okay. I'll go with that story. I had to say whatever you want. You have a facebook friend who you grew up with. And he's a Democrat and sad this week on facebook. He doesn't think he thinks they should take biden out of it and he thinks he should be. It should be fair on both sides. You know talking about Zach that you know that was kind of something you don't see everybody gets so cited I'll put there are quite a few people on the left. Who are like. Let's get this guy out of here but this is the focal part in the leadership. That is telling everybody know. You GotTa get behind this guy. Yeah you see these op-eds coming out of there like maybe believe. Oh women was kind of a little much to their. Suddenly become very introspective. Now that they believe emory accusations doll. And you know it's really hard to. It's hard to come to a conclusion on this. Now the suddenly becoming very nuanced about it fits. It's fine now. You know we guy the last story. I usually don't go back to a story. We missed that these police cars. Because some of the Babylon as we are. We're prophetic so just want to mention that. The yacht story while the created a few days later police went out and shape to their cars into the word. Hope at least house arresting mothers that are taking their children to play inside people and hope they still hope. We need a prophecy. Fulfilled soundbite in graphic obviously fulfilled checkmark chair back to the Biden accusations. Do you I. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if someone told the truth. Maybe I'm idealistic. I'm sure but what if he just said? This happened. The Hallway and It's probably not. It's not the only thing I ever did to anyone. And I've changed generals the weird thing about cavenaugh even if he had done what they say he had done like. They're so young so long ago and like I was rape. I'm in with Rape Women with with Biden. It's rape too. That's the thing it's not like in high school right there really young. I don't know if it matters. I can't I'm not saying it's but I'm just saying it was. I don't remember there being actual rape though. I thought it was like he was anyway. I don't get is like similar clothes or something. We've in his arms around for the audio watching a movie where you just say. Well they would just say the truth right here then. There won't be a movie. Yeah that's true just young One thing Adam Ford did our dear leader. He grabbed a bunch of old. Nancy Pelosi Tweets from during the Cavanaugh hearings and just switched out the names for deteriorate and Joe Biden. So here's what here's Nancy Pelosi. I applaud the courage of Terry to come forward to share her story. As we continue to learn more about these allegations against Joe Biden we must ensure that reads right to justice privacy respected so that was Originally she had originally. That's what she said. Yeah originally she had. That would have been Christine. Boise Florida Gabbana. Every American. I'll go ahead. And every American should be concerned about what the debate around the allegations against Joe Biden says to young people across our country. We should stand with survivors. Not Punish them when they decide to speak out believed survivor. Believe but then they don't believe yeah. Yeah it's weird. Think people get the idea you have so one of the parts was Lisa Bloom. Who is a feminist attorney She put up on twitter that she believes. Tehran was assaulted by Biden but still will vote for him and support him. I believe he's a rapist but I will vote for him. That's incredible. Hey I mean just case where she thinks trump's rapist trump's pick. I believe you tear. You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago. We know he's hands it asking for money. You've obviously struggled mightily with this. I still have to fight trump so I will still support Joe but I believe you and I'm sorry so weird. Empty Words alone firm. I guess is the news talking that phone call from the MOM. Are They not talking here? I've heard in conservative news. But the mall area she called into Larry King. They're saying can't be proven it was her. But I'm sure there's some videotape you. Could you could compare the voices. I mean the sad thing is just obnoxious that this has to happen every every politician. Now I mean has they have to find they have to dig somebody up then. This whole thing is to go turn it all into this whole they did this. We had to go through this with everybody. The thing I think that most conservatives during Cavanaugh were saying if he did this it's really bad. Yeah but look at the evidence. Let's see what the evidence says right and you can still say that about diarrhea. Well maybe Joe didn't do that. Once the evidence. Yeah but what's the weird thing? Here is the timing. It's super crazy thing that doing on the left where they're going you know. We must believe all women said two years ago saying well. We didn't mean all You know and it says this crazy. Yeah crazy back flipping so all right. Well you guys are way more serious in real life than the one I listen to you. Well that was a serious serious story. Let's go to a fun more fun or one. Yeah more funner authorities in the scientific community who touted faulty code. Nineteen models confirmed today that they are pretty confident. They know what the weather is going to be like in one hundred years. Can you hear like competence? So they predict everything wrong for two months. Yeah but one hundred years. We're pretty sure what climate scientists predicted Kogler different. Okay so it's authorities right. Yeah experts experts. Well I think most of the time experts have really good predictions. They're never wrong about anything. I agree we should always listen to everything. They say. I agree I disavow I recant. The story so we're going to do is we're GONNA play a little game here called name. That failed prophecy. Now we're GonNa do multiple choice and then you'll pick which one you think. A real scientist said then we will reveal which one okay. Your mom knows how. It's GonNa work well. I don't know the year mom knows how it's GonNa be all right. I'll do all read the fall. Read I you choose Kyle Go K. The world will be cold enough to have gone into another Ice Age two times over by the two thousand. That's one with the amount of time. The Earth spins in a given millennia. Scientists predict mass dizziness in a pandemic vomit by the year two thousand ten because all spinning by the year. Two Thousand Fifteen every American household will deal with the tragic experience of their pets heads falling off after the fourth choice. After decades of cow abuses cows will develop a natural milk toxin that will wipe out the human race by the year two thousand twelve. Which one is real get an actual prediction scientists main? That's what I'm trying to guess. I'M GONNA go with the cow. Milk toxin and wrong is actually the the scientists decl So that the world will be cold enough to have gone into another ice age twice over by the year. Two thousand so not just one time like reach an ice as you'll get twice as cold as it would take didn't really happen in bars. I remember good. That's so confusing. Because didn't they don't they say we're warming say climate change now because then whatever is changing. It's changing the spinning thing though. I almost almost jumped on that one. One of my first dates with else rocket scientists. Dad We add salt and pepper Shaker on the table. And I'm like okay if the earth spins so fast how can we don't get dizzy? And I'm making it. Go around the sun spins speculated. Understand that it's big and it's that whole twenty four hour for once. I just thought everyone just always said the earth spins fast so whoever wrote that moving right now it's crazy to think about if it's so fast how come we're not dizzy. That's vomiting all the time. No I said how come it doesn't go day night day night day night like that so you convinced him that the earth is flat. Like wait a minute. I never thought of this disc discuss. Okay so here's some for you Ethan. All right the earth will be entirely depleted flaming hot cheetos by September. One hundred percent of humans will experience death by bear. Two thousand the earth will be overpopulated with seven billion people and that is simply unsustainable. We add one hundred fifty million violent gun deaths over the past fifteen years meaning that humanity will be extinct by approximately yesterday. Will you know what I'm going with? Obviously hundred percent of humans will experience death by bear. I knew that you jump on that one out. And that's why I wrote it wrong. What the actual prediction is that by. Two thousand years we'll be overpopulated with seven billion people. So it's funny about that prediction because I was back in the late sixties. They predicted this. They're about fourteen years off. There are seven billion now over that but they pretty there'd be so unsustainable we could not survive that massive population boom of that many people. We couldn't handle it. It says here that he forecast in the hundreds of millions would starve to death in the seventies as over sixty sixty million Americans would serve. Starve to death in the seventies so wrong wrong Paul dumb scientists cash scientists are idiots but idiots lean scientists are Real goodness I'm GonNa read you to read them in my mom came mom lance pick. This one can all right bye. The let's see by the year. Two thousand fourteen water will be obsolete option to global warming will be so bad two thousand five that you can cook a bag of popcorn just by holding out the window Third option by the year two thousand thirty years from now the entire world with the exception of Western Europe North American Australia will be complete famine Or finally there's a very real danger of having at least three new news boys albums released in the next five years. Which was real was really made? Are you laughing this is I totally forgot? All of them number three what I put in my head because it had a lot of words in it sounded like scientists would isn't to win to win. Great can be funny about any other. You're correct. That is correct the entire world will be in a state of the year two thousand the entire OB and famine. This is a little Balderdash balderdash sheep. You play that game though. We should play the more game. Even I'm so bad at Giggle when you make up definitions for words and you have to guess which ones still fun you said. Peter Gunter Professor at North Texas State University. In one thousand nine hundred seventy issue of living there said Demographers Agree. Almost unanimously on the following grim. Timetable nineteen seventy-five widespread famines beginning India. These will spread by nineteen ninety hundred include all of India Pakistan China the Near East Africa. But your two thousand or conceivably sooner south and Central America will exist under complete famine conditions. Did Not happen no all right here. We go heath unready final for the finale. Earth has one moon after approximately six thousand years since the date of creation. Yes so after six hundred thousand years or will have approximately one hundred minutes that makes sense moons. Yeah the reproduce between nineteen seventy and nineteen ninety five mass extinction like what happened to the dinosaurs will happen. Thanks to environmental policies. Okay scientists now believe we are at risk of having over five thousand two hundred sixty seven Tyler Perry movies by the year twenty thirty Climate change will 'cause everybody's hair to burst into flames by two thousand seven but even sooner they use quiet. I'm going with tyler pair movies for sure Tyler Perry correct Madisha but not correct because you know it said that there would be a dinosaur like mass extinction. At the first Earth Day the political sponsor Senator Gaylord Nelson warned that in twenty five years. Somewhere between seventy five eighty percent of all. Living animals of all species of living animals would be extinct little bit off by that much. Miss a good phrase. Hand the Tyler. Perry though he makes he keeps making movies and knows surprisingly not very good. Like it's a stage show or something job but he keeps making him yeah. He's got his own private jet. I when we if one of US gets home we say hello to imitate tyler. Perry a little bit which one I want us. Heller the center uncle. Oh my gosh you ever F- ARD on aeroplane. She wants to say this so we can you know what I said? What did we say instead of Fart? Okay this is thanks to care as we said bottom bubble's bottom bucks so much said gas so I texted Kyle. You guys should use bottom bubbles as another flowerbed word. And he didn't takes me back which always been no text back like the opposite of. Send you your your. Your son gets suggestions all day. Lost is true. From the different everybody pitches headlines and I just ignore I delete become numb to like good friends will send me ideas soon like not answering that. Yeah but when you get that. Lol It in some well. Kyle's a little cheaper that Lowell. Well maybe all capsule sitting with him. See them type. Ll and he's not laughing out loud. It's not real. He's lying all right. Well what we're GONNA now we're going to talk to our moms. Yes we're going to bring on well your MOM's here come in via technology and you're gonNA find out all about our childhoods which is going to be wonderful the along vs topic. Well it's mother's Day or almost mother's Day and so we are here talking about the most important topic in the universe. Your mom your mom. And it's a big tough but we are. We are interviewing the mostly both a little topic for both small misery. But as your mom like the subscriber right now never mind so mom. We've gotta be careful you say MOMS because we are moms are here. We've had many guests on the podcast. Right on. Paul Ron Paul Phil Phil Johnston. No what is a Phil? Duck Dynasty Phil Johnston Bill Robins Robertson. Johnson's the MacArthur Guy who else this is going. Well but way surpassing any of these politicians and commentators more important than any of them are mothers so today we have our mothers on Mother's Day podcast. Welcome welcome let's say. Welcome Diane Welcome Diane and also Diane. We have two threes by Diane so the way to discern them now one Diane Diane Man Dying man. My Mom's last name is begs so we could do may demand and d bags when you do that with my name. It sounds like demon. What are you have you have your grandparents? Your children call you. Grandma GRANDMA GRANDMA Americans say mine called Mind Greenie. Well if if Cayo says mom will know he's talking to me and if you save Diane Gallagher does a good point I'll see diane or Ethan's Mom Kyle's mom and then we'll figure it out right. Well it's Mother's Day we're here we're talking and We WanNA find out first question overall you birth birth us. You worked hard. You made money. You did whatever you had to do. I mean my mom was a single mom so she went through a lot. All moms go through a lot and the trend. But what were you saying? My mom didn't go through a lot. He's worth goodness gracious. Was it worth it? Absolutely your mom's faster than one on a scale from one to ten sports and ten KAZILLION. Yeah well you know how you feel about your kids. I know that's how we felt about our kids now. It's worth younger. It's more of a question. We spread right now. We have one guy who didn't like the worst time junior. And then we have the two year old which is the worst and then the five year olds playing off two year old. So and we're the lockdown lockdown with the kids at the worst moments of their lives. So you you to think that it will be worth it in the end makes you could be awesome. It's awesome writes. Mothers have any words of encouragement for Ethan as he goes into this stage of tweens and teens and I was a horrible teenager. Our memories or anything to help help guide Ethan through the Valley of the shadow of death channel the Valley of the shadow general. I don't know I always get that. Makes WHAT GENDER is. I did have two girls after I had two boys. That's what I'm asking you. How what sex is real boy? Five year old girl ten year old boys actually pretty easier now and then the thirteen year. Old Girls in a very dramatic so I would say tritiated girls for the beauty and conflict city. They've bring to the world okay. They're they're less simple than boys more complex but they bring so much beauty and joy and her she says things so nice too deep too deep for the she says beauty and complexity. So it's like oh it's going to be a train wreck. That's that's how I translate. That sounds like shattered spine. Well also just realize it's not gonna be forever you know. Their hormones are raging in and everything is so serious day. Got like themselves you know and I think it's important to remind them to all their other friends are feeling this way. Even though it doesn't seem like it you know I think they're the only ones going through this and they're not also. I suggest that as a Dad. You should let your let your daughter know she's beautiful. He's physically beautiful and warned her about man. Young girls don't realize you know especially I think now in this day and age with so much sexuality in everything that they're tempting man just fights away they look it. I never knew that when I was a kid when I was young. That man are tempted by physical things. you know you try to explain to a girl how a guy's mind works and they really have to choose to believe it because I don't think they can really comprehend the way. It works so differently in that arena modest. Isn't there you go. That's a good one a pretty glad not to have girls. I mean girls are wonderful but girls do it. I didn't think I would really want the guy wanted a daughter but the thing about KFC son is not like I imagined my son and he's kind of I mean you know there's things about him. I never could imagine but like you have your idea what having a son is like. And it's kind of lines up like you know a daughter you don't think about it like you aren't like your son is going to become a big. You know he. He looks at us when he's going to become that one day. But your your daughter your this mysterious creatures this giant creature that protect sir. You're like her. Baloo the bear or like the iron giant. Or you're just you're this giant creature that is rough and stubbly and you embrace her and care for her. And you're like this. Almost you feel like there's a magic beast when she's with you and you float down the river with her on your belly and you teach you how to eat bugs. Exactly I like having the MOM's on my jokes people don't want to describe us as teenagers as a teenager. There is like no time to think about this. And there's no way adequately describe it. So Kyle was okay. He was president of the Christian club and neurons class clown right there so professed class clown or one class clown one year and then senior year. Maybe in high school year I would say he despised convention country. He would wear these glasses to that. Didn't have the lenses in them. These just black with names and different shoes from each other and bright colors and if anything had a Nike logo or anything there'd be duct tape over it he was wasn't going. GonNa promote these big brands corporate sponsor Bible verses on his shirt very very likable. But I'm his mom but that figure it so I bought some book for everybody in Your Philosophy Club. Yeah it was. More than a carpenter Josh McDowell. I think he had a cousin band so he's creative with his music. A cousin band the family cousin. Bantu that we WANNA be nice. Yeah he just pretty. I would say kyle embrace life then brought so much joy Sir. Sound like funeral. Laughter had a really long hair. You will be missed cheeses here going on This all sounds like you could just copy this to me. Almost what you think no. You weren't really into Christian Steph. Halfway through high school. Yes Ninth Grade Tenth Grade. He was the total grunge freak. Her Yeah using the Kurt. Cobain had long pigtails in towns hair. Who else yet we did you know. I just had the long island. The Kirk obeying here the covered eyes is steer people hair. Yeah move around Guiseley girl. Let's remember how often I was confused with a girl? People daughter going to stay in the car during this car wash. We got that question really. Well Yeah I can just remember the grungy shorts and the big black boots with crummy old teacher. I my own yet. Combat Bible verses on the my drew pictures severed heads and things like that. He was into the the the High School newspaper drawing cartoons and got in trouble for a couple of those of those they were all about. What was that that you were the severed heads in our Asian things. I made a whole series of jokes about animals with who just all these jokes where like. A dog is catching frisbee. Making his head. Come off for like a cat is scratching drapes but its arms are still stuck in the drapes and the cats on the ground like oh mom show off so this was a prelude to your biblical nest in has there were severed heads in the Bible and the Bible I pursue. Yeah he uses these skills to this day to draw severed things on the Babylon be. So that's right. Do we still have any of these comics. Diane or have a book of them. I think I haven't my site. Maybe you're all give you sign up for my patriotic. We'll get a you get one of them like a digital. We added a bunch of those. Yeah yeah a couple of different bands started bands and they played here. I'm up at least once a month because I lived in the garage. They I was the quote lady concerts and First Aid Lady because Pitt had some injuries. Helper moms are like angels man when it comes to kids who start bands because they're at every show an analogy. I I really. My kids started band. I can't believe you went through that with me soon. I look back now and like well. Thank you so obnoxious. The number one supporters all. Yeah yeah yeah that was fat Anita. I thought having the band in the practice in the garage of cool we know. Ram In what? I'm doing. Yeah we're at our house. And then he then he went to a young life camp and that's where he'd turn your life around your basically forced me to go. I did you paid me. You was working memory. You were working. My mom is a hero so working multiple jobs at a time she was. I can't what your day job was working all day or a waitress at this bar and In reports on a restaurant but you also were a had multiple jobs on top of it three. Am You do a paper out in your car? And so I would come with you because teen and I didn't have a license yet but I drove so much. This is a tiny small town. You know you're so out I would actually do the paper out and you sleep at the back some nights because you're wiped out from all the work you're doing raised three boys and so I was pre. I appreciate the chunk of money. You're giving me for that and I didn't want to miss a day of zoolander and so but you want me to go week trip to leave so you gave me a paid vacation to go. You're trying to be no excuse so you got you got my relatives to help pay for the trip and then you paid me to go. It's a good choice. Yeah you didn't want to go because your friend didn't want go also hated those kind of things hate church camps and they they always hate it all that stuff. I really want to go and I loved it. I really did love it. Which is weird because it was not something I would have been myself loving. Well we're on the teenager thing. I look like you're about to say something that I was doing about fifteen when we flew to Washington. Dc for a family trip so the whole ride on the airplane. He let me know that we were making him. Go what Diane said. Or they're just reminded me on this. There's commonalities going on here. T- to started citing my constitutional rights. Yeah you are taking away my American freedoms. I can't believe you're making me go. So we get to the vacation. He has the best time of anybody has a great time so because it all up and then the whole plane ride home. He's I can't believe you took away my rights. You may be. I am an American. Yes My love for liberty runs deep comes from my teenage years. My oppressive parents. I actually launched a protest one time. They tried to make me get braces. So you can see you can see this bottom tooth sticks out. They tried to get it fixed for me now. You if you had but I put protest signs all over the house. All the walls may have a went up on that one and he caught it from me. We call it the carver crowd. That's my name too. Calmer crowd because they're so crowded. Teeth don't fit there so. I know I shouldn't made you but you were so passionate and I'm like well a few thousand bucks and he'd really doesn't want them. Yeah Breezes made you get them knows you thousand bucks out so when I was a kid. My mom was a hardcore humidity chores I was. I chopped wood every weekend because we used woods. Wood Stove for heating We had this giant lawn that was like a steep Vertical Hill. We ended mode along So I always I would. My biggest beef with mom was that she was a slave driver. She made us work so much so remember one week weekend. I got so mad I what did I do I I I did. A cartoon on my computer was a looping animation and it was of me and my brothers all in a cage I think in the animation just had tears running down our eyes and it showed you on a thrown like laughing. It's laughing maniacally so you came in and found that. I just had a running a loop on the computer while we were doing chores. And you're laughing so hard at it so now I got mad because I wanted you to be mad at another funny and then this is really bad admitted. But it's really. This is my sense of humor in high school. This is funny. Don't read into it too deeply. The next animation I did was the cages broken open. And my mom is laying on the floor wiggling like this like a cartoon character and we all have guns and we're going to repeatedly kicked out of school because I was going to school when the first school shooting started like Like I remember hearing about the one in Eugene. Yeah me and my friends. All jokes like that. We all joked about shooting and stuff and Ken show like anymore but she thought that was Larry as right. You disturbed kidding. We don't even have made it funny to us that we didn't even have guns. Didn't have a dad around with having with guns. I don't know if you had a gun when we were growing up but I'd never even touched one until my friends from around the you know so anyway. That was an anecdote that wasn't ACTA. Everybody's disturbed now. Can we find this animation computer? I think totally crashed. Said he's awesome. Lend you think real computer when I worked in a thing like crazy hours administration. Yeah he was good at animation so even though he did crazy things like that. I still encouraged it. I love that. I love the lack of a reactive. Nece to what she saw into what you did and admiring creativity and the humor in it instead of focusing on violence. That's a pretty good animation of me getting shots. All the it was kind of it was I made it. It was funny animation. Because the way you were on the ground like wiggling like as if like you know nobody wig like got shot is if they were like flies getting I made silly cover up it now just yourself all right. Well I've got some. I found some tips for mom's on the internet or really and I want to see what you guys think. Going to get. Diane and Diane Take Mom and Diane's take on this so Number one stick to an early bedtime thumbs down. What do you think badly bedtime for kids better for the kids? Yeah I get him to bed as soon as physically possible. So why are you anti older early bedtime? Mom even when he's like structured so. I think we got judged by some people when we are raising you that we didn't have embedded at seven thirty every night but we have fun so yeah. Unstructured was definitely our house. Don't mean that in a way because there's a structure I when I go to. His House are so casual. We were the fun. House that like all the neighborhood kids. We didn't go to neighborhood kids house. They all came to our house that we went gringo. The man's and we'd have like a dozen kids running around well. I think my mom would've gone insane. Get an empire through a lot of kids out at me kids in lakeside. Yeah very small. Towns in Oregon for people empire a lot of stray children running everywhere let drugs once they had to be in school. We would do eight thirty or nine but as toddlers. It's like no one's telling us where we have to be tomorrow. That's play didn't get up at two in the morning and just ride my bike around the house. Yeah I got up and you're on your big wheel in the hall. You got it out of the garage all right another advice for moms create mini traditions stemming. I don't know many many small like little traditions like one. I can think of one from our childhood. We have a special birthday played played. I think we have a birthday plate every birthday. There's a place says you are special today. always they always said Oh. I'm not special every other day on my special today. Yeah that's part of the tradition complaining about the birthday play absolutely for that one. How about you Diane? We didn't have a birthday played every year. Yeah head shot. I don't even remember a on. Fridays always remember moving into the just the holiday. Type of just regular holiday Steph. Christmas tree and Things like dad warm on the tradition lukewarm. I wasn't absolutely we were. I was absolutely for the mini tradition. I'm trying to think of some more of though I know I know. We had a ton in the summer sometimes. We did theme Thursday in there. It'd be like a circus theme or come over it. Not Interesting at all but sorts supposed to name some of our mini tradition. If you have any I was just trying to think of some small things like you know when we were in soccer was like Burger King Thursdays. And we'd just go to Burger King and it was just and then we always compete to see who got the longest fry. That's when I was at Bible study. Dad's thing yeah. They were taking all dead story or he did the he would do. The the little trips where we would just drive around town and see where we ended up if there was a storm. You guys make the boats down the stuff out of trash these are. These are father's Day stories for father's Day. Take your kids on individual dates. I E biggest thing if you can know the single mother I. I think that's part of the why we have a lot of a little traditions and I couldn't take them on individual dates by the time I could name. Didn't want to be with their mom. They want their friend so that didn't happen much. Yeah I know the few times I've taken like took Elisa to Disneyland Albert Self and that is still one of those special memories we've ever had and then lily took her to Mathilde play date night and Yeah Lizard. It's so worth it to do it. If you can do it to her to medieval times the other one on one it's so manageable you forget how nice it is to have kids like when it's just one come on. They're not all screaming at each other. It's like yeah 'cause that's what they really want. They wanted to be focused on the need to learn in reality. They can't be focused on but every once in a while it's this causes this sigh of relief when like you can focus on them and they get what they wanted and we got to go back to reality. You're not they will remember that forever because my view on on a one on one once and I never forgot that I still I still think about it. Sometimes you get the idea that like yeah I work hours and hours and all this time and all the money that you get like all comes from focus on you a ton but then it really translate that much older. So it's good to yeah. We had some really good Sunday school teachers in our adult Sunday. School Class Kyle's dad and I and one of the best things that they said was to spend fifteen minutes a day which we didn't do it every day but letting your kid just be a kid and letting him get an idea of what to do and then not making a teachable moment out of it just following their idea and going with it so as a teenager. I told I'll do whatever you want to do. And he had me drive backwards. I can't hear he had me drive backwards through Taco Bell and order only guacamole. We were in that funny car of yours when my Buick but it was fun you he got to get the idea and I just followed and I think about backing through a drive through and it sounds hard you did. I'm sure I didn't do it because the wheels turn on the back and you gotta like at that point right but I had one date with my dad as a little girl one on one and he had a milk route in the summers when he didn't teach summer school and I got to get up at four. Am and go with him. And I was so excited and drink chocolate milk and got ill. We had to go into this nicely. He's on his route so me. That's how excited I was one of six children to be one on one with my my dad so it is. It is special. It's Tummy Ache special sometimes. Allow your kids to fail definitely. I'd rather stop them from failing myself but really they're gonNA fail somewhere like as they get. Is They get whenever you see them about to fall off the side of a building when they're small they're sticking a fork in the light socket. You stop on when they're as my dad fifteen and they're going to spend their money on something dumb you you let them. We're on a dock and no my brother knows like playing on the edge. Really high up fisherman friend of his. You know Tom Your Boys plane right there on the edge he's GONNA fall off my goes way he'll learn some you know he's gone all the way down it just knocked out of luckily but thankfully the tide was an end. Yeah yeah we're the tide was would have gone into the ocean. Yeah that's the school of hard. Yeah yeah well. A cobbler was catch. Something hot he keep telling him. It's hot hot hot. They don't understand. You have to let them get burned. A little bit advocate a little bit so then they understand hot out there avoiding. Yeah I yes to that too to let them fail. But then I'm trying to think what is fail and I can't really think of examples It's probably like Trailer by ride your bike and got a crash a couple of times or fall down. You know on their teenage years dating day getting hurt. Yeah I think you guys were of the allow your kids to fail philosophy in a bad way. Yeah Yeah failed his final. Yeah Johnny Fall and get back again. Yes have a family meal together. Every night is the last one I got. Yes good to have like a check in the family meal together every night like you know what? Make yourself some cereal. I think that's okay too personal. Yeah we we ate together. Mo- most of the time but then when everybody got older and get jobs it's impossible the equal were working. You know the older the kids get harder to get everybody to get together right. Yeah I'm not proudly on our part. We did the Wednesday night twenty burgers for five dollars at McDonald's drive through on the way to go and now eat so healthy. I'm like Oh my goodness. Did it really do that? Dead polls through thirty thirty burgers whatever it well. My sister's husband he's really cheap. He's over being jeep and he would have each kid go in and buy twenty burgers and then freeze them. So that's pretty good. Yeah we went to McDonald's on Wednesday nights to we ate inside and it was a family meal together. Right accounts was who was booed folk and fun. The totally counts all right Just some of the worst moments raising US skips a few little stories. Here was the worst. It'd be two year old vomited up. Something could be teenager crashed the car. What is what do you think some of the worst stories embarrassing? Mom's looking at me thoughtfully mistake. What maybe it wasn't a mistake of assuming the very best of them so now that the kids are older these stories come out finding out retroactively. He was leading to drive when she was thirteen. I yes I never thought I tell my sisters drive or one of them when I was when I had my buick. Just go to the park on literature around circles. He's thirteen year. What sixteen. Yes some anything else when it makes. Jeez yeah we were a little hooligans sometimes but it was always very. Pg hooligans we were PG hooligans or anything no no no but like in high school we would jump. We jumped the fence at the apartment complex down the street and go swimming at the pool there and told you ever. What else do we do breaking stuff or just like getting into stuff. There was a pepper Shaker. I kept buying from pampered. Chef that some help kyle was the one to break. It kept breaking about it but now I probably just the grinder right. Yeah the must nice nap. That a few times a hooligan challenge. I wouldn't say I wouldn't trouble. But the challenge was he would have big ideas that I couldn't quite fulfill so he'd say mom. I WANNA make a helicopter and I'd go get some construction paper and glue scissors. No I want to make a real helicopter so I always a little inadequate to four five. Yeah that was challenging Elon. Musk two three. I take you through that piano bench at me when you're through it. Isn't you got mad? Let me go to a concert may have been the weird Al Concert. I can't remember. It was the weird al. No it was one of those local rock concerts. I don't why I just bad. I think I got myself grounded. Let me go to the concert. I did I was the bad days of fighting a lot. Oh we all thought of fighting for like three or four years ago when we were all like in high school and like the most volatile ages junior high high school and I lobbed a piano bench at my mother and she dodged it and then she thinks you fake college police. I don't know if you actually did but I didn't you start throwing my stuff out on the lawn. Let me know that I was going to be kicked out and then I started pleading so yeah and here. I am today after throwing a piano bench. Survi- survived the user fees. And we laugh about it now. You've got so mad. He threw a burrito against the wall. Oh yes a trash. The Wall a wall above the trash can like slides down. No stay there and we were also mad or yelling screaming and she the burrito against the walk. She's tired of it. And it hits. The Wall and big is like a perfect burrito against swollen behind it was like it's guts splattered everywhere and it was just stuck right there like a work of art and it was so funny the way hit the wall that we just all started laughing like it was like the fight was over. The BURRITO is so far. I'm trying to think I don't think we have any violent stories or fatherm. Stop volunteering like throwing throwing things. Like I remember getting mad at Ryan Ryan punched me once but I think if the parents we never like We never follow your siblings. We've with similar. We'd never punch each other really. My mom was like my parents. Were like adamant like if you'd started hit. It was like you're done. You know. Yeah I had this thing. That home was a safe place. The world is hard out there but at home. We'RE GOING TO BE SAFE. And they can't believe like to have two boys at really didn't beat the daylights out of each other. At one time I did say if you WANNA hit each other go ahead and put you in a room and shut the door and you guys are laughing as long as far as throwing things and all that I remember. I remember staying. There's a good way not good way to express your anger. I never really went farther to express. What the good I remember telling you. You can't bite your brother but you can say you feel like biting your brother so I was on the landline phone. Talking with someone you picked up the phone. Two or three mom. I feel like biting my brother would. Have you bite a pillow by still? Don't know quite what to do with anger but yeah we didn't have the big data thrown stuff. I guess not guys name one. I should shut your fat little faces and you will never forget it. She never showed my mom. Nothing like that and yeah one time. We're we're fighting a river. Show your little faces moment. It was like did did silence like I'm just called us the name. What do we do you end to this day? We still bring that up. The only the only outburst had to get up and now I've lost year.

Let's do it do it. Well that was touching and moving. Removing touching moving was in the subscriber portion of the best stuff. We we read some of my life my old as joke book my Joke Book and all my own stuff and talked about fifteen years. He was pretty fantastic. Some special moments Nelson moments up lilla tearing moments. Dan Got all right. So we're going to do some hate mail now do some so. We wrote an article trump refuses to let Jesus in his heart after learning from Nazareth. Because he's like okay. This was when he was talking about all this countries and he called them Flowerbed whole countries and say can anything good come from Nazareth. Yeah and so. We got some replying to our newsletter. Was VERY UPSET OF AREA. Upset so mom. Would you like to read towards your kids? What's the protocol we'll believe keyword? You're dumb donkey article about trump just confirms what a bunch of Babylon Baptists Butt heads. You really are hiding behind a computer like the LIMP wristed spineless Jellyfish Morons. You certainly are. How many words for the person that wrote this to your son? Ouch I love the just the alliteration of it sounds like Daffy Duck. What a bunch of Babylon backed up by ADS. I've never heard my mom's say but it's before so that was hesitate where she said. I did say but once when he was a kid and And when brought home from hockey there was a note signed by on all the children. Saying Your Dad Mom said but assigned by so okay. I witnessed it. Well you were telling us before that you saw comment on the Babylon that said whoever wrote this has issues with their mother or something. Yeah yeah they're trying to work out what they didn't get emotionally from their mother when they were young can cayo? Who wrote it so hard on people. Who Love You guys? You're not supposed to read. The common number aren't people. I really worry about though that they go as personal as possible onto a stranger on a comment on twitter. Like you got problems. They have to go that deep like they were trying to cut as deep as they can in some strange personally. The remittances serious strange. Yeah people they need help. You need help so we did it. We did our first filmed episode. Is it yeah taking? I was trying to picture what limp-wristed spineless Jellyfish Moron would look like because they don't have wrists. I could try to draw it. But it's like yeah like something limp-wristed spineless. This needs to be the thumbnail for the jellyfish. Okay let's seen this Jerusalem. Was this something about Nazar okay? It reminds me that right. When you're Babylon be book came out. I got to travel to Jerusalem and I took it into the Dead Sea at. I held it not easy. A really Ramadi has been read in the density. Wow well I floated loaded wall then. I floated it right because it's so. Yeah and then. I had an idea for a bubble B. Story that I texted. Kyle ignored it. Was something like something like all. These tours get stopped because everybody has to stop. Read this amazing book. Yeah can't do the Meta jokes about the Babylon but I was actually the first one to order the book she was she. My Mom's very supportive. Yeah she threw a party the day the the book made a big to be kick hang. My parents are so they've been through enough time of me that there's guys doing whatever this new thing is he's doing. Yeah we'll get there. Yeah I gotTA publish a few more books. Then it'll be like yeah so that all the hate mail we want. We want a week and we get one really good one like that. Do you ever think of doing something with the comic. The comments sometimes man will be comments that counts and say would you love mail sometimes and sometimes it's Nice Nice Mail so can I just say that none of your things really me? Not even the thing about growing up in a Christian bubble okay a little bit but the the literal bubble. That was funny. Funny in it that I don't but the only time I get really upset is when you make fun of Chris Tomlin feel so he can cry into his millions of dollars. Wipe his three road violated for Chris. Tomlin and have you ever heard from him? Has He ever had come down the street at the? What are they guitars? That are made down there out. Taylor I think Taylor's made down there. And he was down the street. At the factory touring and he took like a Selfie. And I was like I should run over there I never did. But that's my that's because to their crystal. Maybe he was seeing you and trying to get you in this yeah he. He is never shared the on the article. I think he's hard on them. We are kind of harsh. We haven't done the but he's decided to be the guy butchers him. So you're here I stand can do no other run joy to the world. I cracked a funny tiled. Ll with I was at a Christmas concert. Funny well I checked Kyle. I texted Kyle before I put this on facebook to make sure it was funny. So He's if thinks it's funny I I just feel so good so I said I'm out of Chris Tomlin concert.

Inside The Writer's Room

"In a world of fake news. This is news. You can trust breaking news. We just made up. You're listening to the Babylon be with your host. Kyle man and Ethan Nicolle. Welcome to an extremely normal episode of the Babylon be podcast. This episode is so mundane. It's going to blow your socks off. Well it's not mundane. It's just extravagant. Cindy as normal middle of the road average average everyday humdrum and Nila ice cream absolutely not special. Because Ethan mocks me when I say that the episodes are special. I knew I never do. You'd mock me one time because I said this is a special guest. And he said as opposed to all of our normal and we do have normal guests today is we do all. This is just a day in the life of the because this is our writers episode and we have our writers some of our writers on the line with us today massive army of writers. We have a few yes. Three of of all of the Babylon be boroughs This is just a few the baby. The baby rose and so we'll introduce them one by one. Frank Fleming is on the line with us. And you guys. If you've listened to the podcast. He's come on with us before so frank I it's me cool dude frank say something say something funny. No good one. Wow we also have on the line with US Chris Cowan. Hey did I use that count? Yes yeah actually pronounced right good job. Yeah it was called You Cohen. And then when you talked on the phone to Count Alan. Everybody doesn't like yeah. I like making cow into verb. He will be worshiped in India. That's my goal. That's my goal and we also have on the line with us. Nate McMillan. Thank you for having all. I'm supposed to be doing a British accent. So we have some diversity right. Appreciate it guys named Chris to talk a lot alike very similar Natan Chris just Richard GonNa say the word Honeysuckle don't say who it is so just go go honeysuckle honeysuckle. The second was I think yeah I think so. I mean nate slightly deeper. Yeah sledding only slightly more masculine. Yeah and Chris lightly nasal like more on the feminine side. And I thank you thank you said that about. I did just get a vasectomy. So it's forgot about that. Probably contributed. Yeah I took a BOO octave honeysuckle. Few more times. Y'All got this sound bite. We can use it for anything. We can bleep thing. That can be bleep. What the on these cycle honeysuckle. Well we thought it would be fun. We actually recorded a very similar episode one time before and the audio was completely unused early days with the podcast. It was a big undertaking. Trying to get all these voices on one podcast and I failed miserably. This is back when I was engineering. It yeah so we. We fix that problem by replacing Ethan with Dan so we wanted. We wanted to give you guys you know just to. This is the Babylon three guys writing an article together. And that's what we're GONNA do in our in our featured section. What is the topic of the main topic of the weekend? And we're also going to go through the news like we usually do and usually just me and Ethan cracking jokes about the news and chuckling and going and that's really funny and now you get one two three four five voices. Doing the yeah. I'll talk over each other. Since were we're on skype? It might not sound like but it's ever doing so there'd be a lot of delayed reactions for someone will laugh at a joke like fifteen seconds later and then everybody will start talking exacting time the all stop at the same time. And it's not gonna be awkward at all. Daniel edited her which joke honeysuckle has. Anybody had an crazy thing happen to them this week. Anecdote before we get into our news. I lost my cat like he died. Or you can't find him. I can't find him or her. I can't find her. It will do it sad because it took us three days to realize. The cat was missing because not the cat is about thirty five percent the same as having a cat so Chris like you were close. Chris and frank both have had losses. This week. I still I still have all of my pets and my sexual abilities. The cat's name vasectomy low. Can we flowerbeds sexual abilities honeysuckle over the name to beat the cat's name was tubes? -I TUBES SNIPPERS LOSE ANYTHING TO LOSE. That's a different procedure. I've always been confused about it confusing. I think he's now a eunuch. Liu Adjust yeah right. It's not what they did to Mike. Catt great dogs and cats. I WANNA eat them to be like an orderly at the at the doctor's office and they're like what happens in the procedure and he's like I don't know what they do to sheep on. The rubber band is all right. Well are we ready for our stores? There are stories. These are some of them so. Pt Breath everybody. Everybody loves Pete booted Buddha Judge Moody Moody Edge Moody judge the Babylon. The journalists of the Bambi reported that He released a Study Bible. That has notes that it just explain. Why the text is wrong huh? That's nice in his is not at all. Condescending voice is completely lovable night. Here talk me like Oh my gosh. He's trying to be like the Christian Democrat. But that's like even more of a turn off if they just like completely ignored really. Yes weird weird Bro. Did you guys see this as a video? That just came out where he's word for word saying Obama phrases in Obama's saying them like Have the to each other. And He's word for word. Like many many instances saying exact. Obama playbook about that was interesting. Feels like a lot of the Democrats are trying to be. Obama like Made overwork he talked. Just trying to talk. Just like the Castro guy and Beta. They both taught they were trying to best Obama impression. No really by Castro Guide. You mean Bernie or no I just seems like the Democrats Obama anymore I mean that's why like Bernie Sanders is not Obama. And he's doing very true. Yeah that's the thing to do to sorry. Go ahead will. Obama was like four years ago now so he's like two conservative. Yeah that's right. Yeah old fashioned. Against Gay Marriage when he first ran which is yes. Wasn't that your headline member of the KKK. Now wasn't that your headline Frank. That Obama got cancelled after someone dug up his old presidential campaign where he opposed. Gamer. I'm so funny your rascal. What an idiot and we also the journalist the Bible and be also reported that has Hasbro introduced a new my booty. Buddha judge doll which is which is not a joke. I just put get out in front of that because his name is Buddha. Judge that my body. My Moody thinks creepy. It makes me think you have the song the song. Damn then my buddy song actual song. You gotta remember the doll. The my buddy doll I do so. This is based on vase to come on the reason a lot of us know what is because this would come on during Ninja turtles all the time and it was this doll that had been created for the whole idea was like it's a doll for boys boys can be softer and gentler and they can have a friend. That's what Kim action figures are those are. Yeah so think a little friend and he just kind of dead stare and he just this. Apparently Chucky was based on my buddy. I guess that's like one of the inspired them the Chucky doll the my booty is making me think of federal twilight zone with the Talky Tina doll wants to. Yeah except I don't like you. I want to tax you yeah. I don't think my buddy talked or anything. It was just the idea was the your friends. You just buddy you can tell them your problems. I liked that this the the suits at Hasbro all got together in this room. And we've got a problem. Full is are playing baseball punching each other playing in the mud. Yeah Yeah we've got to fix. This all seemed good also same problem with like clowns whereas like you know a lot of people just find creepy younger honeysuckle. We're all distracted. My wife just texted me asking with the NFL Password. You guys have to tell your website along into things but let's complain about our wives for going Berbick afterwards. He writes them all down into. Let's talk you got one. I got one pass family so I can share everything supposed to be like. You don't have to ask me but she forgets installed on things still has asked me. I've got the apple. Tv So anytime like one of Apple. Tv's like tries to sign into something POPs up on my phone. So I can sign in from my phone. I'm super high tech like that. But the point is husbands are much smarter than wives. That's the point I think. Yeah definitely we have the my buddy song. This wife couldn't remember the Netflix Password. What an idiot. Let's just sit in quietly. Wait for the my buddy song recently into the my friend here it is pretending. I can hear you can hear. It's very quiet. My Buddy from playschool. My Buddy playschool. Oh you guys can't hear it can hear all right. Well you just imagine after Youtube later. Google. I'm just imagining in my head. How amazing that was and I just feel so good Buddy Marbury wherever I go. He lose my booty that song as they might have had on the kid so sister to your kid. Sister was the sequel. The girl which is weird because they made girls have dolls they made my buddy boy needed an adult and because they made my buddy they had to make a girl. Wasn't my buddy going back to making adult girls conception of Korea did you say doesn't even talk like just a guy. I think it's just a kid. He's Kinda big and he's he's bigger than lease not a baby he's like Oh probably a fourth four year old or something kind of looks like a. Man. We four-year-old a matter. I is out so I really tried to mix with the my buddy doll with Pete booted. Yeah just facing the Photoshop. So I actually took is of a doll and put them on notice. Yeah and I really tried to give this skin like plastic looking stuff and It's a really horrifying. It's absolutely the stuff of nightmares more human than we been trying to find a good joke for awhile. It was either a doll or puppet or something in that seemed to be the one way I like the best. I pitched howdy doody everybody loves. Everyone knows who that is right. Yeah I do. I do think that there's a good chance more people would have known. Howdy doody was than my buddy doll in. That's possible possible in the end. It doesn't even matter move on from the stupid puppet joke trying going at this until we get it right. So what are some other dolls that we could make out of the presidential candidates? Oh Yeah does anybody have any ideas that we did before? Hand off the top of your heads. You really out of. Yeah those thinking there could be like a life sized Bloomberg Doll. It's just it's basically the same size as normal would be smaller than my booty. My my buddy. Yeah he come with me come with any little like little accessories. Bloomberg would have. I know there's an angry. Yang action figure whipped cream like strawberry shortcake or something. Yeah Yeah boomer would shoot money out of his butt button you press and he likes swats the soft drink at a someone's hand crowded shopping standing next to an eight ounce soda and it's like Taller than he is and he's like why would anybody need more soda than this fires money like. How dumb the tiny Bloomberg jokes are not even that. Short compared to people right. But it's just so funny. They get offended. You know in trump's like your your mini Mike and then it gets in their heads and they start freaking out about it from the makers of Mighty Max so come with a whole kit a pocket Kelly Bloomberg polly pocket. You Ain't got all your little accessories you lived in this tiny world bugs. Hey Hey what about Biden? Could he be tickle? You Biden tickle me elmo. 'cause like He. He reacts to being tickled so Biden would be over here. Come here come here. You here comes up and tickles. He strikes me as the uncle. That would give you a nuggety. Yeah or like the my grandpa like a slow claw coming at me like the quality slowly coming grab my knee. And he looked hated it. I actually hated it was enduring passed on. Hey wait a minute. Frank can you tell? Can you give us a recap? What the origin of the wood and idiot jokes because we keep referencing in on the podcast. And if you haven't listened to the Frank Episode Frank Episode. Listen Frank what it was but yeah was it. Well it's just a. It's the basic way to come up with a satire. You take a article news like Bernie. Sanders said that Castro may literacy programs. And then you just add what an idiot to the end and now you have a satire Article Bernie Sanders said. Castro may literacy programs. What an idiot. And that's how you make Babylon be headline. Afc One where she's tighter shoes. Yeah worked that was that you know that took a lot of skill at one time. I think they last line on there would an idiot article yet was missing an ending and you nailed it in A. Yeah so I wonder how many people picked up on ideas anybody. Elizabeth Warren is Indian in the cupboard like committed Elizabeth. Warren I guess we might as well get it done with an other than that. She's just the female Bernie. So there's not Indian thing is like her one unique attribute. I feel like she wants to be a female Bernie. You know she's like a more you know. It doesn't actually believe in all that stuff but you know. Yeah she's Louis. She's even more cynical female Ernie. She could light like a huge phony. I don't know whatever I can go BOT. Instead of and transformer she could be big enough to S- TO STOMP on the Mike. The mini Mike. It's not that Short. He's at least four. Foot is human size debate. Just like she told him a new one pretty bad. That's rough. Yeah beaten on him. Even though it's like Bernie Sanders is the front runner. But no clear no pass. It makes you wonder if they all pulled their money together to have somebody come on. They could beat up like they all have a lot of fun because we all know he's not going to win. It saved them all from being completely destroyed because he just got like the punishment toys. How about living on yet? Yeah my my audio cut out for a little while we already do the Mr Potato Head Bernie Sanders but without the potato. Just just the pieces. Right to food in this country. `tatoes wanted to call Mr Potato Famine. There you go. Socialism capitalism socialism. Seems like a good idea to we had Bernie babies the now maybe collectible you get all kinds of different ones. But it's like the Bernie Bruins all done in different little burning breath. Little Man buns little tiny men that instead of being filled with beans. They'll all be empty process of socialism. Fresh out of being. Because it's we're so good it's satire. We should do this professionally which started center site sport character. That's on Disney plus choice story fork. Yeah Working Cla. Char character that out because she did. What was her deal with the fork and the comb? I don't know she made. She ate a salad with a absolutely the face with a fork. Or something home should be Komi Komi Komi Director James Comey James Forty. What are we even doing now? What about Buddha? Gi Joe Internet military? The only one I think. Yeah I think so all candidates and then Bernie's easy bake rations. Trump was in the military. He was the commander in. Chief Larry yes show more respect for him and I like the last one. No no go ahead. Tulsi Gabbard the Russian nesting dolls. What's the word for us but Bush Carson it? What is no? It's not the Bush? Good Triska Matriochka matures. That sounds good. Sure we got a new Russian accent. Though who can do good rush we call. We called these mattress cadolle. We make them by hand. You good keep doing that voice. There is much sure we do these for rest of program. What you call this thing. Podcast very funny. You could do the county wanted to Blair write this just in from Kyle erasing. I'm cutting this off or moving onto the next door. 'cause WE GOT OFF GONNA go along if we're not careful. John Lennon's imagine released with more realistic description of communism was the original song about communism. He was kind of like living communist sympathetic. Yeah Yeah over your eyes man and then I think later in life before he died he was like yeah. I don't know why I yeah. Yeah he like. He went back on all that apparently later in life. Yeah so one of our other writers who I think has not on this call Taylor pitch this idea. Okay and I toyed with it. A bit actually ended up writing the whole song. Oh Wow I think I think he was going to do like It just changes from imagine all the people to imagine all the dead people which I thought was a great headline actually would have been a punch your headline but I I really want the whole song and so I did and I'm GonNa sing it now for you already get ready. We're GONNA. Can you get the impression perform? I don't even know I try which someone else. But that's okay yeah. I'M GONNA sing it. Although Dan is telling me that he can't actually do it because nobody can hear it so they won't hear you guys want to hear the musical here casing. Super Awkward Comedy Gold. Even can I sing? I am the Walrus next time. I don't even know where to come in. I guess I could just do. You could video so if he could show me where the other words are. And then I'll end up in other words all right. Let's try. This is going to be. We should have done a practice session. Everyone grab that special. Even where you're having me. There is no good so imagine. There's this was e- you know tacos huts. Nothing cold front. Who What am I supposed to be doing right now? Imagine there's no money just shut up is in how to do nothing to eat or drink. Good phrasing right there and no bacon to Nah US shored. You may say I'm a calming. You might say that. But I'm not the only one and someday you will join us. We'll shoot you in the face. Imagine no possessions. We'd have to change that at all because all your stuff with redistributed. Lots of greed end hunger. We're getting rid of the green but seriously please can. I have a potato imagine people I was lizard their it. Spend the Shihri. Uh You may say I'm a coming You may put. I'm not the only one. Sanders is worse. Did you say that you don't like that then? It's the Gulag for us Actually nailed it is really how you're GONNA get lost somewhere in there. No I got the. I'd just refined than we had imagined or the Magin. No I have to say I've been a fan of the podcast years and I think it's reached a new high point. How many drop off. We're GONNA members after the We should've worn people that they can skip ahead on their device. We want you to know. There is a skip feature on the call. I'm not just saying this because you're my boss but but that was really amazing and you should definitely consider doing that professional that acapella too. Yeah that's the little girl.

Yeah I don't know there's going to be a noticeable difference between the people whose wives listened to the podcast is is very rational at all times and completely never not rational so so. She listens to the podcast. Yeah I think no she doesn't. She doesn't get the point of podcast. She's like it's just people talking. Why would I wanNA listen to that? And then she talks to me for another two hours about very put it out. She's like listening and I'm like why are you listening to garbage? Turn that on during the garbage. Not In my house surprise. My wife doesn't want any podcast and she got into it and she actually genuinely likes it. She listened to most episodes so careful. The this thing actually happened last night literally last night. Like this really this thing. You often fairly often year ago right. I'm not going to bear are too much but you know there was like you did this. Imaginary Melissa. Wow and I'm like well sorry. Sorry sorry it is. It is it. You don't have to give us too many details but is it stuff. You're doing to her or stuff you're doing with other people it's usually cheating not. Lao Board Games. It's like we were just hanging out at our. Yeah headboard you stole an extra two hundred dollars from the banker. It's usually like we were at this party sitting at our House. And you were holding some of the girl's hand and you're just like and it's always my attitude that I'm just like so who cares right in the dream. I'm just this bad boy. Like yeah that's what I'm doing. You leather jacket was just funny. Because I I couldn't cheat on my wife even if I wanted to because I do not know how to talk to women in anyway. You're not a test that there's a way that I guess I wouldn't know because I haven't but I've got right out of high school. Met My wife in married her so I've never liked the dating. Oh Yeah Dodge the hell. Yeah all those chumps did online dating and suckers and I couldn't. I finally the first girl that went for me. Didn't happen to us a thirty two. So that's not really true. Actually I work from home. I don't even know how logistically I'd management. I figure it out if you really wanted to. You're a smart guy. Why have had very strange dreams? But usually I mean there are some where I'm not so great in the dream. I'm just kind of like laying around or am can't remember that's just me? I had a dream last night. That you're just laying around well if she has those weird stuff happening. There's some weird detail about. I'm kind of in the background of the dream. The I can't remember all most of her dreams are way too obscene for me to be able to actually talk about on the spot. Strange Obscene Dreams. Save that for the bonus portion subscribers dreams had one. Recently I was like I was like super thirstiest trying to find my like you. Bottled water usually use. Yeah but then I finally had to settle on a cup when tilted my mouth? The water is start to disappear. And that's like when dream overstepped itself. Oh your dream. This isn't actually. The dream really jumped the shark. You know like Oh. I can't find my water bottle as normal but I'm cursed and I can't drink water ever that's stupid. What an idiot I got a BET ON HEADLINE IDEA. White blood cells offering free healthcare. Wow that's genius. How'd you come up with that? I just read your idea on the headline threat frank. It's classic and you need to write that. I just want credit so I'm going to read it first on the podcast. Well speaking of headlines. We're GONNA do something that may work and maybe terrible. Maybe a complete trainwreck. This might be a disaster. But we're going to try to actually write a Babylon be article on the air which is just at least Adler which is just GonNa be Piping. Yeah so just the sound of us. Now we're GONNA try to. We'RE GONNA try to kick around some ideas and see if we can make an article out of it and they're going to post it later today if we need if we need a crazy photoshop and Ethan can do it today or tomorrow if we need a crazy photoshop and we can't do it so it's trial who might need to go to a cigar shop so let's go to our topic of the week the battle on top of the week so usually people think people ask me like how is the balance of power headlines generated and they think that it's all of us sitting in a room and like Hey. Let's joke about this in everybody and that would be like the dream. Yeah that'd be awesome but it's just we're all so far apart. We can never do that so we do. Weekly phone calls. Were re chat and try to come up with some stuff for the week but mostly it's just kind of us all sitting on our computers thinking commenting on facebook post and say hey I could. At least we're good idea. I hope Kyle thumbs up this Trials the man he's the Joaquin Phoenix from gladiator. The thumbs up doesn't and sometimes the Joaquin Phoenix from joker. Are you know but signs I ever the walking Phoenix from signs? Not what we were thinking the same though this v necks was johnny cash. Yeah Walk that line so Donald Trump Donald trump is visiting India. At this moment here we go and so we wanted to think of something that we would be free to kick around some ideas on this podcast and you could sit in on how we might come up with the headline idea so we thought of something noncontroversial jokes about India no risk of any racism or anything no risk at all nice light topic so trump visiting India. There's so much to play with so initially we would just think of. What are the things about India? Which is this going to be dangerous. But we need to think of all the elements that trump humor that works well and then kind of care that with something from India. I think there's always the trump's dumb joke of he. He dresses in headgear. You know like it's native Americans. It's wrong wrong Indians. Yeah Wrong. Bronchitis this literally. What happen to Columbus? And that's why it's called India weathersby a native American. Well one thing is. They don't like to eat cows so be funny. If trump went there and slaughtered in Haiti cow you remember. The joke. Did about Of course you do. You wrote it. Frank wrote the joke about him body. Slamming the Queen of England and we would like when we wrote it like one of those articles like trump committed one of those faux pas again understand the culture. He body slammed the Dalai Lama. What was one of the lines that article was so funny? It was like I'm sure there are many it was it was Something something that's considered an insult in their country and it was like trump the queen of England and slammed her on the ground. Something that is considered an insult in their country. Yeah I love the idea of doing something so off the wall extravagant and it's just like. Oh just a misstep like it's slogger. Cowan made some burgers. What are the actual like headlines? Being reported on this I saw that CNN was doing like is trump gonna be able to survive without hamburgers survive. That was an annual headline. Yeah withered trump delivers. While they made a big deal breath they made a big deal. Eight hundred thousand people in auditorium like the Siyam but percentage wise does not that many very but how many people can the auditorium? Hold there. You go I don't have opponents. Come on you don't need to get so offended when we make fun of trump either. That's kind of funny. You started to say it but like withered withered Because he hasn't had meet 'em mason can meet the entities within breath from the podium. He's crawling to the Air Force. One today as he has no idea what to sort of trump gnaws off left arm attempt to get more meat pizza staffer stammer. Yeah no India spicy food so he could like The food but it's like too spicy. Do they not eat any meat? They we gotta eat chickens. They just don't just cows. Yeah yeah well. It's Kinda like Americanized Indian food except is British sized where they had like the chicken Tikka Masala crump. It's crump hits in the phrase holy cow come from India. That were that comes from. Yeah absolutely. I'm sure it's like taking the cows name in vain. I tried to eat Indian food one time for Dan's birthday brought everybody out to Indian food and they never brought my food and like I said. I'm sorry you never brought my plate and they still didn't rely they're starving and there was like twenty people in the eight and I just sat there. They could probably tell. You're going to do racist jokes about. Yeah so they had a bad feeling about me. I that's that's part of the experience of like any time I go to Sushi or any kind of like Asian cuisine. Like if there's if there isn't some bad customer service than it's not the full immersive experience You're so right. Customer Service is always a bad sign. That means they're desperate free to stay. You know if if it's really good food they could treat you like garbage and you know you'll stay anyway exactly. Yeah it's the no soup for you. Yeah this is only kind of related but one time I was. I really got it eating Vietnamese food and eating with this This woman who is running room with. She's an older Jewish woman. She everyone saw that say something kind of racist sore sitting there in my car is parked in this parking lot. I could see it through the window. Resting our table and she goes. Oh you should be careful about where you're parked here a lot of agent drivers in this in this parking lot off very good drivers like okay. Whatever just like so I went? I ate there again like a week. Later whatever same spot. Same parking spots. She told me I shouldn't park there as I'm looking out at my car. A little old aging grandma. She she was right next to you backs out and cranks the wheel to the right. Her car just like bashes into mine and just all the way. Down to big dented. Line all on the end and just takes off because she was a woman of the house one come on. Don't be racist living up to the Stereo. It's as if they knew that we had that conversation. Does that does that. Jewish woman ever show up in your dreams about that but it's another. Her dog did have a crazy store. Dog May have told us on a different episode. You have your does business in life man. You got it on the spot and I don't remember. I remember that subscriber portion of our listeners. But I may have told it on audio mullet wheels That's what it was. It was audio mullet. Yeah I knew I knew my true friends are the audio mullet. Sorry Anyway back to trump in India. What about what some dot like? He thinks it's a laser scope on somebody's forehead and he tackles and that's a great idea. Nate calls himself a hero. Only how did you? How did you kyle? I wanted to just wanted to say neat because I was guessing of it was native Chris. Oh yeah will well. Here's another thing about in India. It's three million. Two hundred eighty seven thousand two hundred sixty three square kilometers. May We could just on the top of your after. Wow that's impressive. That is something. That's very distinctive about any album. Nothing else is exactly that size. What about you know they have like Mongooses Fight Cobra's that's like a thing they watch the fighter is there anybody who is really weasley in the trump campaign that he could like? Fight Cobra is really weasley. Yeah I don't WanNa say one of his sons but like easily a real weasley guy. I can only think of like in his league. Stephen Miller always looks Kinda weasley. Stephen Miller Dragon who sues fired her still on track. If they're on the administration. When we started the day I got this great new hire. He's the best and the next day he was garbage. I only hired him because I felt sorry for him. I guess when when Sarah Huckabee was on it might have been funny to be like trump. Who's crowd as Sarah? Huckabee Devours Dobro. That might have been funny Do some kind of jungle book thing very gets lost in the jungle and befriends a panther and and a bear and they sing. They sing the bare necessities together. Yeah Yeah I think it is best if it's where trump is just being trump. Yeah that's the if the jokes purely that he's just dumb. Yeah yeah well. There's one thing there's there's monkeys India one of them could like you know mischievous monkey could steal his nuclear football around. Like a nuke someone your national treasure Greg. Yeah here's something else Trump's skin is kind of orange this. Oh and also he's kind of Untapped jokes he's done he's warranted something that just throw. I'm just throwing it. I'm just spitballing. Here maybe He inspires a new new Indian. Dish called Lick Orange Orange. Some more stupid or mere Asala. Bad Man Yeah. We say trump. A trump had trouble not eating hamburgers for two days. What an idiot. It's easier than that we've done. This is just like trump visits India. What in eighty? Yeah I I guess I was trying too hard. What if he He negotiates while he's there like some great negotiation with the Prime Minister in exchange for a bunch of Burgers. Because you have been starving for so long you actually gets them the hand and only 'cause at trump is like the whole thing is he's the master negotiator in his head. Anyway so he makes them by like a million pounds of hamburger gets somehow gets them to release APU after he's been in prison for racist. Is that a simpsons character. Yeah yes Putin a piece the piece of Pot Dome. Franken need to give our home schoolers. A little rundown on WHO APPROVES. Yes who comes from the simpsons the Simpsons Zeh cartoon started in nineteen eighty nine run over six hundred episodes. And he is the runs the quickie Mart. Which is like a seven eleven and of course the stereotype is lots of people are Indian around those types of establishments you know what's actually immigrants though. They'll buy stores like that. They tend to be entrepreneurs very entrepreneurial. Hank area just He refused to voice. Any more right wasn't in that or these side. They're just not doing it and then it's like they might have someone else do. His voice is like maybe we'll have somebody who's actually ethnicities Indian do it. But then I'm going to be someone who actually has an Indian accent or is it going to be someone with an American accent doing an Indian accent but he's is Indian so it's okay. I don't know it'd be weird. Thanks yeah that was a big explanation about dolls. What about dull seem from street fighter? Two your firearms. He was a guy that likes his arms would stretch all the way down the stretch back. Yeah go yoga arm you boys in your video games. The Games for Homeschool I'm streetfighter Piatra Satan which which one is trump was like probably And Bison well which of them is orange. I'm telling you the orange skin thing is gold. Mine GonNa Kill Yeah. There is something funny by him being going on and some jungle book adventure but I cannot picture what it would be. I'm kind of leaning towards the trade deal. What about Goram's there's like? All these guys are like sit back. They sat in the same spot for like thirty years. Is there have been opened the whole time or something. You could have totally messes up. Knocked over all these guys dancing on a stick. I roll like a bunch of motorcycles. He's trying to trying to buy a slippery from this guy. This guy's been the broomstick. The other side of the trade deal could be that He claims that he's the one who got them to stop. Killing all the cows that he But you know before he came there were slaughtered everywhere but now he's thanks to him. Nobody eats cow anymore. They're safe and he takes credit for all of it. What if he offers to take all the cows away from India? Like to protect them. I do have space for us. We'll be create Akao planet. Yeah all cows will go there and they will live in harmony. That was an ex-cop issue. No I'm just like no. It wasn't how dare you know? No that was bad guy plan. Baghdad Planet Burger better. That's right if anybody wants to get on. Ethan's good sides say yeah that's right. I remember that were there any bad cows on you didn't do a lot of cows and acts cop. You drew a cow. Oh it was for our Cossio Cortes Comic Art Cow. I was thinking I was the next thing I remembered. Yes I like was written by five year old. Who Burn maybe axe cop and trump could team up to fight. I'll African guy's name can never seem can never find out how to pronounce R Y. You either Mrs Ryan. I believe it's review. You I wanted Ryan. Is like one half syllables. I had a pronunciation guide viz obsessed with that game because I remember we call them Dawson and then it said Dalcin was the other one. I'm BLANQUITA was weird because I call them. Blanca definitely plaza. Yeah Charnley is dealer Guile Guile Guile. Yeah and then kin kin key. Yeah and it's short for Kenner so anyway I like I like I like the trade deal idea. I think that's a joke structure because it's something that's what makes headlines work a lot of times that it sets up the expectation that you're going to read an actual news headline it's like. Oh and then the major trade deal yeah and then and then when it when the joke hits it hits harder trade deal laser the laser dot things pretty funny. Yeah that would be kind of a long headline though I would have to say you might say something that trump's actually yelling like get down you know or get down show trump as he notices red dot on your prime ministers for the prime minister. Who has the windows? Mostly women the women in the means something. I knew that it was just seeing. If you guys were culturalise related that case I could be wrong. You're right it is on. Yeah this is where Cynthia Charleston. It's foolish humans. It's called a Boondi by the way it's got a name. Boondi a I love. I didn't look that up either. I knew that I didn't. He does seem like a good one because it both trump dumb and trump heroic so I like it. Yeah want sides. I also liked him just absolutely destroying account in a Faux Pas. We have done the Faux Pas structure before but we can reuse things. You could misunderstand. Think they don't eat cows we thinks he sees when he asked to get the heck out of there like they don't want it anywhere nearby. Stop tempting with your meat. I I guess the danger with the slot danger but the sweet spot for trump humorous when the trump supporters will share it in in the papers and I feel like the slaughter. One may err on the side of being too far yet. Well where people are gonNA say. You're saying it's the same trump's in the NFL too. Obvious I don't want do the trump's an idiot thing I don't know because he's not he's not not to be clear. I mean of cleverness GENE TRUMP MAKES TRADE DEAL. Yeah to protect all the cows take them to the US. I tend to look at the headlines that are trump is in idiot is less a commentary on trump and more a commentary on the the news. Media's constant you know portraying him as an idiot yeah yeah yeah. It's the line that you gotta walk depending on how on how it's worded are there any funny? Henna Henna Tattoo Ideas. GotTa you know there are not okay. I'm just kidding. Trump stamp we connected with the fact that his skin's orange yeah? Oh Yeah we have brought that up yet. Coming back to. It might be fun. How about it's been denied Boondi? I'm sorry Bendy Indian. People Start Worshiping trump because they think he's a cow because he's he's fat easily overwrite in Orange Orange. Oh I connected with the orange thing right. Let me thank. God we're not short circuit the guy short-circuit. We got that guy. That's another one of those timely reference duty Johnny Alive. That was very. I heard the accent. A little kid is like what is he talking like that. I don't think that actor is Indian. That's probably who probably not. What is it yeah So I don't know what do you guys feel and I? I like the slaughter thing I like the laser dot. I like the trade deal. I guess I guess we feel like the slaughter thing might be a hard line to walk go with either. The laser dot com the radio. He gets something totally wrong about any culture. Like thinking you know. I love Arabian nights or like. Oh I love Aladdin or something we can do the native American thing like yeah. It's true that someone mentioned before. Yeah this was a great woman. Trump apologizes for trail of tears. Maybe maybe you keeps asking about where their casinos are in their quickie marts. Well that's the other thing though. Is that actually the United Joke on this? And there's was that he. He thought that India was different planet and so I feel like we use the structure that he's just completely misinformed. It's kind of similar to that. Yeah we know what let people know? Just copy the onion. Yeah we want to. We want to disguise the fact that we just read the onion and change the words around rest like we'll just take one of their trump articles. We'd just plug in Jolo steen instead of trump And it works perfectly. Actually one of the trump like bows before portrait of himself and says. Please guide me in my darkest hour. We just do that with Joel Osteen. Yeah because most laughing. I'm not sure it's just trying to find that it's all been narrowed down now and we're just trying to figure out which. What do we do you guys like laser? Not Are you guys like the trade deal thing? I like laser dot. Why NOT WHY? Not More than one a little bit more eighty that wanted to do both. I mean. Sometimes it depends on how popular it is. If you can double dipper NAM. We're double dip on Bernie Sanders commie remarks all week. I mean we're going to do one every day on what an idiot I don't. I don't feel bad dunking on people. That praise communist dictator. Yeah I don't I don't I never liked communism. It was spending in brave for you to say. Yeah when I was a Kid. We had a much better than climate change or all worried about getting nuked which is like you know. It's much more immediate thing than being a couple degrees hotter in a few years and yeah it was scary. They were GONNA Nukus. We're not nice still my childhood now. It was fun because he had lots of cool eighties movies like going up commies but now it's like you know. We have presidential candidates same economic ideas as the guys that Rambo would blow up with explosive Arrow or punch the pace. We'll we'll take what we got here. Are you trying to get to it in actual finished headline no. That's fine. We'll do one of these heard the sausage being ground up and when she see it it'll be a it'll be an its casing gets not that funny in this state but when we get to the Bambi. It'll be a little bit funny. Yeah it'll actually be less funny because you've heard all this time why we don't laugh as much at around jokes as you hopefully do but Yeah welcome to the sausage factory in the name of the episode assassin. But now you're seeing is really good writer so we don't have to call it. The people say it's really easy. Anyone can do this. Keep sending US your headlines. Yeah let's do let's do before That oughta tune gets slower every here just these aerial so bad yes did probably didn't hear it Nobody heard Oh you did okay. How'd you hear that time?

The Beastly King - Son of Man E5

"Hey, this is John at the bible project. Ron episode five of a conversation about a character in the bible called the son of man is an important character that Jesus himself identifies with while the apostles called Jesus by the titled Christ and odd fact in the Gusta counts as qisas almost never use that title of spreading. So instead, he's very often used phrased cinnamon, this is a phrase that you got from Daniel chapter seven, and it's clear that Jesus saw Daniel seven as a symbolic portrait in miniature of his entire destiny. Calling vocation his identity and Daniel seven there's a dream in the dream. We meet this character, the son of man, he rides up on cloud sits at God's right hand in his worshipped alongside of him. This is the human we've been waiting forces page three of the bible when God promised that a seed of the woman would crush the head of the serpent. But the son of man is in Danny. Seven which is the culmination of Daniel one six, and so we need to take Daniel one through six. So that's what we're going to talk about today. Six century BC Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon took over Jerusalem loose their temple and recruits men to serve him in Babylon one of these men is Daniel we'll look at how he is connected to the son of man, all that and more in this episode. Thanks for joining us. Here we go. This is the part you've been waiting for. Yes. In the Senate conversations. Everything's been setting up through this. This is where the good stuff is really felt like the country's been good. Oh, it's been awesome. But it's all been preparatory to come back to where we started and to Redan seven, I think with fresh set a lens us, and then to let that help us reread the gospel accounts of Jesus. Yeah. We've never done it this way start in the middle of the story. Go to Jesus. Correct. Go back to the inning story. Yeah. And then come back. Yeah. Okay. So here's the recap. We've preparatory conversations for the son of man video we're gonna make we started. With fact, Jesus the most common title in the New Testament is messiah Christ people using it to describe him. However, an odd fact in the gospel counts as Jesus almost never uses that title describe himself in. Instead, he very often uses the phrase son of man, this is a phrase that he got from Daniel chapter seven, and it's clear that Jesus Sauza Daniel seven as a symbolic portrait in miniature of his entire destiny. Calling vocation his identity identity. Yeah. And so then what we did was go back to because Daniel sell Daniel seven. Is it self the whole story that he revival Daniel seven didn't just pop about nowhere. It wasn't just some random dream. Yeah. It was culminating vision wrecked of an idea that's been generating since the first two pages of the bible, literally. Yeah. Since the very beginning. So yeah. Daniel seven is the whole Hebrew bible told in one chapter of dense symbolism and dream image. The whole Hebrew bible. Yes. And almost every key character every. A key mediator or deliver figure human contributes to the portrait actually think of this figure we're gonna see in Daniel seven the son of man as the photo mosaics in a big pictures that are made of thousands of little tiny pictures and Daniel seven like that the son of man figure rising up above the defeated beast and being thrown beside God that figure is if you in you'll see a million little pictures of Adam and Joseph and Moses and Joshua and the high priest and we're gonna see Daniel himself and realize all of their stories have been miniature versions of the story. There's just one story line work in all these different. There's one meta story being told over and over and over again through the mini stories of all the different episodes and characters of the heat. Prebble? And it's the story early chapters of Genesis. So the character the son of man in annual seven is like an amalgamation, correct? Yeah. Of all of these other stories. Yes. And what you realize when you get there is that we haven't been telling all these separate stories of always separate individuals. Yeah. It's all been one story. One meta story. Yeah. Time you get to this. You probably already kind of pick that up. You're supposed to have been trained already to know. That's what's going on that seems so significant and this is what Jesus calls himself. Yes. And so then why the gospel authors will have woven into every episode of the gospels design patterns and keyword, hyper links that two stories in the Hebrew bible to depict Jesus as a new Adam new Joseph, a new Moses and Elijah new David they'll tell stories of Jesus doing something. Yeah. But then. He'll say something that's a little hyperlink or quote from something Moses said or something the gospel, don't like to just straight out, just go. I want you to understand Jesus is a new Moses. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. They almost no that's not. They do it. The way the Hebrew bible. Does it by having him? Do something like that something Moses would do or use a phrase of that's a phrase from this story, Moses. That's something. Moses did something David did. Yeah. This the we've of biblical literature. Legal authors, advance their claims and arguments, and what they wanna communicate to you the message, but through narrative patterning to create overlapping characters, and so the son of man is the greatest example of that. But the son of man is in Daniel seven, which is the culmination of Daniel one through six, and so we to take in Daniel one through six real quick minutes. I daniel. Let's just take the Senate in the third year of the reign of your Hoya Keam king of Judah never cut neds odd. King of Babylon came to Jerusalem and beseech Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar. Yeah. How'd you pronounce Nethercott net? Saw. And actually that's a Hebrew pronunciation of abou- baloney in Babylonian name is never called threats awed with an art instead of an end not net solder, but ret-ser never caught. Tar and never was one of the names to God. Yeah. In the book of Jeremiah a couple of times in the Hebrew bible, the spelling Nevo cod. Dress are is retained even Hebrew. But most times it's never caught nets are. And it's just a pronunciation variant. Like in like tomato tomato potato potato. Yeah. But those will have the same letter letters. Oh, yeah. What's another one? Then you know, what? I was really interesting is how British always put ourselves and behind words the end with an A. Oh, okay. Like a gender a hike or banana. That's right. That's right. Yes. Yeah. That's a good. That's a good example is this really soft are an American English you keep the a really strong and you end with that. Yeah. But nee that's right, actually. Yes. Friend actually staying with me because he's about to move to Scotland and he made dinner last night for at our it. Awesome. And but it used something with worchester Scher sauce. Oh, yeah. War. Ward juster Shire English, but he saying in Scotland they say worse ter- were Stor were Stor. So called the Reta never a Todd. Yeah. Anyway, so his name means Nabu is the name of a Babylonian. God, I think it's a synonym for Mark. So it means so in Babylonian novel could do root sir novel could do third nother has protected the son who will inherit his apparently what it means with the name Acadian. Now, it doesn't really matter so much, but what do you know about this guy? Like, how do you get come to power in like, what's the whole Babylonian story? He represents. He's a king of what's called the Neo Babylonian empire within the new the rising from the ashes. Oh, so actually before Israelite Israel was ever on the scene. Babylon had ancient powerful empire over the mess potato region. King hubby, it's kind of the famous. Oh, yeah. Hobbies this big ancient stone were inscribed law code that was giving him by the gods. So then the Assyrian kingdom which was capital in Niniveh, which was up by the Tigris the north. Gained power. And then it was just a Syria all the way for centuries. And so, but a Syria didn't the took over the northern kingdom. They took out the northern kingdom, and they besiege Jerusalem during the reign of has oak in that story told in the bible multiple times. So never caught red Saad essentially was the architect of a renewal of the Babylonian empire. And he was able to exploiting a succession of lots of kings in a row in the Assyrian empire. It was weak economically weak. They it spent way too much money taking over the world where over extended and so anyway, he's able to take advantage of a bunch of things there's lots of details and forgetting right now. But anyway, he rallied babble. This is N. We're talking this ancient. So this is happening in like around six hundred BC the golden days of Babylon were in like eighteen hundred over a thousand years. Yeah. For over three thousand years kind of lane. It's been dormant. Yeah. Under the shadow of Syria. Now. What was Israel up to in Babylon heads? I kinda heyday. Oh, yeah. They were Abraham's ancestors. Okay. In that very land landed miss potatoes free. Abraham correct. So the all that say Babylon's ancient, but it's a Neo Babylonian is Nara new Babylon. And so never nod. Dress are. Essentially stormed west and was a certain his dominance over what used to be the territory of Assyrian empire this Neo Babylonian era didn't last even a century. I mean it just over extended itself as little just like Syria. The Persian who came next version empire. They learned from Syria in Babylon what they did was all the people that Nebuchadnezzar had exiled and taken prisoner into foreign lands. He led these people go back. Okay. Yeah. This this is why Cyrus and this is why Israel. Yeah. After Ezra Nehemiah in zero bubbles period. Yeah. Books of the bible about this about, but as Nehemiah and that whole crew going back to Jerusalem that was a part of many people groups getting to go back to their homelands after having been taken into exile by Nebot kinetic, but that was just normal. You're like we're going to be the powerbrokers here in this world. And so you're gonna all be under my thirty and I'm going to March in and you're going. You're going. That's right. However, what never can answer did. I is he asserted dominance over Jerusalem. He besieged it. That's how the book of Daniel opens. And we're gonna see he took a whole layer of the elite our economic brokers took them to Babylon. But he left the majority of the population and he set up a puppet king. And then it's the puppet king is that a Kaya who rebels and the Nebuchadnezzar comes back. You guys are done by gave you your shot. So there were actually multiple waves of got it never can coming and taking didn't just come in. And just take over. I mean, he did he came in. And he's like, I'm gonna let you guys keep this keep this, you'll just be under foreign occupation. And the guy ruling is under my thumb. That's right. So Daniel is a part of this. I wave got of exiles all of that is told in the book of second kings and Daniel opens with a, hyper. Link back essentially back to second kings third year of your team came to Jerusalem, beseeched it came being. He was the current Hughes. The puppet relying of line of David. No, no. He was the guy raining win never can has showed up. Oh. So verse to the Lord gave you hiking king of Judah into his hand. Yeah. Just like Jeremiah said, just like the prophet said rebel sons of David don't get to rule and drew slumped, very long y'all way won't allow it. So here's what happened. The Lord gave the king of Judah son of David into the skies hand along with some of the vessels of the house of God. So he looted the temple to call the gold lamp stand. Right. The table of show bread. Which isn't like if you're trying to make friends with Israelites, not no good thing. He doesn't care about being friends. He's asserting dominance. Yeah. Very of Valiente though. Or then look what he does he empties the temple of all of its like ritual furniture. And then he brought them to the land of she nod, and that's a LA hyper link, it means Babylon its regional name for Babylon yet and IV says Babylonia. Oh, okay. It's the land of she not our. Yeah. He retires. A it's a glowing blue hyperlinked. Because this is where the tower and the city of Babylon were built in Genesis eleven it's called the land of she not. That's where the car babble was. It's a rare ancient name for the region of Babylon. Yeah, we encountered it I in Genesis eleven Hooker. And it's used just a few times in the whole Hebrew bible. Interesting. And they're always meant to be hyper links back though, member what was Genesis eleven about. What's that tower? Babylon that has its head up in the heavens. It's a temple structure, and so he's taking them back to the Babylonian cosmic mountain. And he's taking what used to be in the temple in Jerusalem and putting it in his temple, his devastating devastating. Yeah. Yeah. He's throwing his weight around. So for three then the king ordered oschkenat's the chief of his officials to take some of the sons of this real, including some of the Royal seed, literally the seed of the kingdom and by now the word seed, yes loaded loader. Yeah. The seat of the woman seed of Abraham do see if David part of the messianic portrait is the Royal seed within the seed is the future hope of the treasure of the one who will bring God's kingdom and bring blessing to the nations. Abraham all that. Yeah. So that's interesting. It's like this detail of taking the Royal seed. Yes, Versi takes all of these like the really important artifacts like the important temple all the temple worship stuff. Yeah. It's like going in and Robin God's house, but even more than that the most valuable thing. Yeah. The future of their kingdom is the future of the kingdom. Yeah. Symbolized in in the seed, the promise that God would use any taken that taking that Tabatabai onto. Yep. Let's think about these Royal seed they're use in whom there was no blemish like the priests the like their prese, and like the sacrificial animals it's a phrase used to describe like Passover take a young year Lang with no blemish. Yeah. We're any all the sacrifices in Leviticus. You take an animal with no blemishes. Why are they being described as if they're sacrificial animals interesting right animals? Get consumed by the flames on the altar. But it also is a description of a pre straight creek the preacher to have no blemish. But also the and also the animal correct yet they were also good of site can get on the is good on the is which is what was said of both David and of Joseph the same phrase. Also, it's what that forbidden fruit looked like to the woman really good of site. Good of site, no interest, and you know, just as handsome. Okay. You know, what else is interesting? They had knowledge in every kind of wisdom. Endowed with understanding discernment and knowledge to serve in the king's court. So we have the Royal seed going into the heart of Babylon and their described in the language of priests and sacrificial animals. And they have wisdom, and they look good which is just like that fruit in the garden that would bring wisdom if you take it member women saw the fruit was good of site and desirable for gaining knowledge to become wise. So you think that's all in the air? Oh, absolutely. Not really, absolutely. Totally. That's a lot. Yeah. Yeah. By this. Hebrew bible. It's already preprogrammed specifically from the Joseph story. This is all language from the Joseph story where Joseph is the fruit and fruit the Potter for his wife sees and desires and takes. So these guys are the are. Now the fruit that never can. Just taken the that's why they're described this way forbidden fruit of the chosen Royal seed. And it's gonna come back to bite him in. Okay. But anyway, just all right. Yeah. Okay. So here's what happens by now. In the Hebrew bible, the authors, very creative, and they'll be using imagery and language earlier stories, but a new combinations. They're not beholden to the earlier stories. They use them as treasure troves imagery to to make the point that needs to be made here in Daniel. So here's what happens is that the king appoints that these guys eat from the king's choice food and from his one and to get schooled and Babylon, Ian, astronomy in math and language or three years before they entered the service, not about gig among them were four sons of Judah, four of the Royal seed, Donny L Nanya. Michelle as audio. So Danielle means God is my judge the one who judges on my behalf on Anaya means y'all way shows mercy Michelle Michelle who is like L who is like God. And as aria is Yala is help. They all really great Hebron awesome. Hebrew, names and head what he does is they assigned new Babylon names Delta's are prudential yet Shadrach and again, so belt dishes are here. I'll just look these upper quick belt. So he goes Daniels from God is my judge to baht sorry who tour may the king's life be protected a while. So his name goes from God as my protector judge to protect Babylon may the life of king battling be protected. Interesting. Interesting. Yeah. Cool stuff like this. Okay. So here's the. Thing Daniels got a new diet a new educational track in front of him the name. But here's the thing. He already has wisdom threats knee. Yeah. So next verse eight so Daniel made up his mind, I'm not going to defile myself with this Babylon food or the one and and for him because it's not kosher, right? Almost certainly going on right? Yeah. That's right. So we have a figure here to the king of Babylon these treating these Royal seed like they're like the forbidden fruit that he's taken. He's gonna plump him up. Totally. But from another perspective, here's Daniel as the Royal seed human being taken planted in Babylon, and he won't eat food. That's forbidden him. So it's this contrast king of Babylon will take what doesn't belong to him like the humans on page one taking the fruit. And they're described the fruit McDaniel won't, but Daniel won't eat the forbidden food. He becomes a reversal of Adam. He's the atom. We're looking for totally. Yeah. Yeah. Nebot Nezar becomes we know? We know the story we know human desire and take what they want for themselves. Yeah. That's. Yeah. But Daniel all of a sudden this guy, he didn't do it. He doesn't take what is forbidden and his life is at stake. All of a sudden, the king gets angry that he and his friends won't eat the Royal food. And so Daniel says, wait, okay. If you can kill me if you want, but just give us some time ten days, and if we're more healthy in our brains or working better than anybody else here after ten days of only eating seeds. He says give us ten days. I think it's which is what the God wanted Adam and eve in the garden. Yes. Yes. Did exactly. So Daniel says he says, I don't want the kings food than he strikes a deal down here. Yeah. Verse twelve he says test your servants for ten days. Let us be given some vegetables as how it gets translated as a plural of the Hebrew words era Zehra which seat. So here's the Royal seed who's asking to eat only seed, and this was the diet given to the humans injustice one seed bearing plants and so it says let us so he's like he vegan. We're like this. He's a new ad of. Yeah. Awesome. This is the new oh, cool. He won't eat the forbidden food. Yeah. Stead hilly what? God's assigned him is the bearing Clinton and then after ten not in the garden of Eden. No, no, he's in anti Eden. He's in the anti he's in Babylon, which in Genesis three to eleven is the anti is where expulsion from Eden landed humanity was in planes of all connected. So awesome. How stories work? Okay. Ten days pass and their bodies are healthy. They're smarter verse seventeen God gave them knowledge and intelligence and Daniel even understood all kinds of vision and dreams, and then they enter into the king service. That's Daniel chapter one Kerr. So we're already set up to see Daniel as a Royal son of David who's a new Adam he passed his test. You just like he didn't take the Royal priest on Genesis one adamant heaves, right? They failed the test. Yeah. They had everything going for him right there in the guard need. Yeah. Yeah. Everything's awesome. They're walking with God the temple garden. They're living there. Yeah. And they screw it up. Daniel he's pulled out of the temples destroyed Jerusalem or ransack. Yeah. That's right. Yep. He's pulled into the anti Eden. He's now essentially the slave of a guy with thinks he's God. His name has been changed. And he's got to protect this guy. Now yet and attest is put before him regarding forbidden food for the kosher diet, so important and to the storyline and even an axe. Yes. Yeah. We how forbidden food it's such an important part in leg when the Druce lem Christians told the gentile Christians, like do whatever. Yes. Yeah. Just these two things here. It's what sets Daniel apart as faithful to God. Yeah. Yeah. And they say just don't eat food sacrificed. What did they sacrificed idols and with blood in it, right? Correct. Yeah. Or strength. That's been strength. That's been strangled. They still cared about the diet. Yeah. They did. That was really still important too. That's right. Yeah. Such a simple. Okay. So Daniel do Adam pass this test. And now, he's super smart, super wise. And then we're told he can understand visions and dreams. Behold. What is Daniel chapter two all about a dream, a dream that the king of Babylon has he has this dream of a great statue made up of multiple kinds of metals, and it's big statue representing the empires and kingdoms of the world, and it gets struck by a meteor, and then he wakes up and he's freaked out. And no one he calls all wizards and dream interpreters no-one no-one figured out you so he says I'm gonna kill you all issues need it all my staff. I'm gonna kill all my staff and hire new people to imagine. No. This is good to let that sink in for a second this, human nature. I here we live in such a unique time history because that. Outlandish to us, but probably most times in human history that was par for the course, head to gonna roll growing up. I what watching this movie about this city that like had all the gold in like, there's this one scene in it as very old movie when seen it though like ruler, which is mad at this guy. So he just like drop them in this like boiling cauldron of gold. And then the guy's dead. And I'm just like I remember as a kid washing. That is so gnarly. Yeah. He just killed that dude. Yeah. Pot of gold. And for whatever reason that's kind of like the same yelling icon. Like never shows are just being like you guys. Can't do it. All right. You're all dead. Bring me a new crew yet. Yeah. Did put him in the pot of gold. Yes. Human beings man animals with this video is going to be about the animal nature unweaned humans when we don't submit to the definition of good Nevil greater than my definition. So Daniel asks for a couple of days to pray to God. Because he's like, I know I can I know I can come up with the interpretation of the dream. So he does. And he goes in his has listen, the statue that you saw the kingdoms of this world four layers section succession of four kingdoms you in the ones coming after you. And you know, you should do you should honor the God of all nations and be a good ruler v. Could you know and Nebuchadnezzar hazardous, by the way, this is not if Daniels being smart he wouldn't have brought that interpretation right? Oh, yeah. Sure. In other words to say that your kingdoms eventually gonna fall and. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. Getting summoned by Tova. Yeah. That's right. And eventually the whole chain of kingdoms is gonna collapse. God's kingdom comes the meteor comes strikes here. You're not bringing good news is what I'm saying. Totally. Yeah. So think the images of a great statue reaching up into the skies its head in the skies. Okay. Just like the tower Babylon build a tower with its dream. Then the media comes the Dirac represents God's kingdoms. We have interpreted, and then all of a sudden that rock grows into a cosmic mountain says. Says the mountain so in place of the human the human mountain, so to speaker their image it goes up. So they eat in becoming eating again anti-aging destroyed God's cosmic mountain, which is not what happens when a meteor hits years. You get upside get a crater. So interesting. You don't get good point. Yeah. This point again. So it's a dream. It's all symbolic meteors can become mountains meteoroid combatant in your dreams. So very important the king's response to Daniel his in chapter two verse forty six then king Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face and new American standard has did Amish to Daniel are you looking at translation paid him honor paid him honor and gave orders to present him in offering and sweet incense fragrant insects. Well for Daniel this went well for. Yeah. Okay. But just stop. So the king of the nation's who just plundered you and your people is now on his face before Daniel and paying honors. It's the word for worship, oh that phrase and paid him honor. He there is worshipped hit. So the king who just had a dream about a statue representing the empires when he realizes the Daniel can interpret dream, he he prostrates himself, and he worships Daniel and offer sacrifices to him before him. Did you see this to present him? An offering an incense means this is the language of worship in the book of Leviticus is what you do at a temple kill an animal. You burn it in before the altar before the holy of holies, and you offer incense as an act of worship eastern king the king who thinks he's a God is battling and worshiping Daniel as. As if he's God. What's this crazy? This is total inversion of the story line. And you're also a little scandalized, drew. I mean, he's a pagan onion. He will talk kinds of things. But, you know, in biblical imagery, very stark Daniels and Daniel. The king says Daniel surely your God is the God of gods. The elohim elohim the Lord of lords the reveal of mysteries she like, wait. So he's worshiping Daniel. Yeah. But then he the one he's also honoring his worship to Daniel is form of worship to Daniels Daniels God, but the Texas very clear he lay down prostrate before Daniel and presented to him for never Canizares something special about Daniel knows that behind Daniel is Daniel's God. Yes. But we also know from the biblical narrative that Daniels God has anointed humans. Yes. As its image as image. And we've been presented already Daniel as this true human carrier, human image, a true image of God who passed the test. Yeah. Eating and then here are the nation's. The Representative of the nation's bowing before the faithful image of God in offering in worship. I'm just saying what you saying member Daniel seven is the culmination of a biblical whole biblical story. And also, the lead up of Dana's son of man picture. Yeah. Here's a son of Adam who's passed the test and the nations are battling before him. So the next chapter is Daniel chapter three. This is one of the most famous stories in the bible and its inversion of what just happened begins never can as her made an image of gold. The height of which was sixty cubits if the cubits what eighteen about a foot and a half ninety feet high by this. That's a statue of liberty sized how big. Liberty three hundred five feet tall. Oh, got it. So it's a third third third egg. Yeah. He's still really big. Yeah. Yeah. Totally okay. Napkin has just fell down and worshipped the God of Israel by worshiping his image represented by Daniel. And now. Yeah. Never can as are making in reality. What he just had a dream about. See stores old habits die hard. So he's like, you know, I had a dream about this really cool image. Let's see really knocked. It was the head of gold. So I'll just make the whole thing gold, right? When you have that much gold to your name. I mean, why not make it statue yourself? I guess it's kind of like never solvants thrown with the lions on the steps. Yeah. You were enjoying that throne. When we talked. You're like I would make one. Okay. All right. So never condenser makes this image. And he also makes an edict passes an edict through the land in verse four he says to you. The command is given all you peoples and nations and languages. He summons them all before the statue the image image year. It's the same Hebrew, actually. Now we were in the air or near mic section, but it's Salomo same three letters Hiebert Selam. He says at the moment you hear the sound of all these instruments the horn the flu they have a whole Symphony Orchestra pit in front of this. What you are to do is to fall down and worship the image of gold. This is an inversion of one just happened at the end of chapter two. Yeah. Because we're Daniel is it exactly the navy tabular? So after the fall down the image. Why is it? Why is translated worship in every here? Yeah. And not I know in the last chapter. No, I think because it's describing Daniel as the object of the verb. And they think are translators think like we can't translate that worship. He's not worshiping. Daniel somebody's supposed to be doing. But he is like at the end of the dream about the statue straight up says it he worshiped Daniel and offered sacrifices to him straight up and actually here. I'm going off the work of a couple of scholars here thoroughly studied this out here. And it's totally what's happening. I love Daniel two and three are inversions of each other. Daniel to the king has the dream about. An image of his empire. And then he worships Daniel as the image of God for interpreting the dream now, the king of the nations of summoning the nation to worship in image of him in the same vocabularies what he did to Daniel. But he says anybody who doesn't fall down in worship the image. And he did today will be thrown into the blazing fire and then your own famous story. Hyper-link from chapter one of Daniel and his friends described as people in whom there is no defect or no blemish. Oh, yeah. They are sacrificial lambs all being burned before the image speak for not worshiping the fall to manage fewer has gone yet. Totally. So they're the story happens. They don't the three friends. They don't don't. They don't work. They are offered as a sacrifice before. Right. The altar of Babylon so to speak, and then all of a sudden a fourth a fourth person that looks like a son of the gods appears next to the friends. In the furnace. This is in verse twenty five twenty four twenty five says never can as was astounded that fire was burning. But they were not incinerated and official says to him verse twenty four wasn't it three humans. We bound cast into the fire. Yes. Yes. Okay. Well, I see four humans walking around in the fire not being harmed, and you know, without fourth look like he looks like a son of elohim, which that phrase can refer to a human son of elohim. Oh, got it got the king. The son of David is adopted as a son of God. Orca yet. And that's what these guys are part of the Royal seat of David and also Israel has a whole like in. Okay. Can be called the son of God. Okay. But it's a Royal title title. Yeah. And spiritual beings are the delegated authorities over the nations to hear you saying there's a there's a spear being in their supernatural being there with with them here. So that's significant obviously. But then when he invites them to come out only three come out on singed, not even their hair, smells like smoke. And nothing's damage. It's amazing. And so what he does is. He says blessed be the God of Shadrach meshach Abednego who sent his angel his moloch messengers. He interprets that as an Djelic or supernatural being who saved a servants who put their faith in him. They violated the king's command and gave up their bodies to not bowed down in worship anyone except the wrong. God. So. I make a decree that anybody who says anything bad about the God of these guys will be torn limb from limb and their houses reduced rubbish heaps. Okay. Yeah. All right. Okay. There's that story Daniel for another dream the king. He says chat. Forbes were you know, I was at ease in my house flourishing in my palace. Yeah king. Yeah. So good, and I had a dream at a freak me out. And here's what it was. Yes. Dream about a tree huge tree. And it's beautiful. It has all this fruit and all of the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky and the living creatures come and they eat the fruit, and they have shelter and shade. Awesome. Yeah. But then verse thirteen a watcher a holy one descended from the heavens verse thirteen watcher or watcher, a watcher, I will note here and I've used messenger, then it says or watchmen. Okay. Yeah watcher. Yeah. That name has very creepy connotations in kind of modern English like the watchers like I feel like in different different stories. They're always a little watchers watchers. Yeah. Yeah. There was this kind of like X files reboot. Kind of thing called was it called fringe or something and the whole story line of these watchers characters they were just kinda like exact same kind of characters. Yeah there. They just observe. Yeah. They come in to like, make sure certain things don't go awry. But they're just kinda like these kind of. Sovereign kind of character. Yeah. So okay. So that's part of the heritage of the biblical watchers in the biblical tradition of these super super beings. Superbeets superbeing super beings who represent the eye of the heavens on the events of humanity university someone so that's all heritage from the biblical watchers. This is the only time that this word is used to describe these creatures in the Hebrew bible. However in a work contemporary with Daniel in its final shape in its final shape. He revival in the book. I e knock the watchers is the name of the sons of elohim in from Genesis six. Okay. So the angels are the watchers said the well again, the sons of elohim, right? The spiritual beings that God appointed to rule over the heavens. Who violated the boundary here in came down? You don't want me use word angel. Not yet. Even though angel is what they will come to be called. But that's a later blurring of an original distinction blurring. Yep. Essentially in the Hebrew bible, the sons of elohim here. One of them called a watcher represents the spiritual beings that God delegated to rule on his behalf over the heavens. True, and that's distinct from the category spiritual beings called moloch or angles angels because those can be spiritual or human to human or spiritual being role, and what they're there and people they run the errands angels angels away to describe the what someone's doing more than what they are. Correct. So what happens the in post, biblical, literature Jewish literature is that stop calling sons of God. Or actually they keep doing it. But the word angel developed its meaning to cover both catego-. Cairn? So by the New Testament, you get Michael Gabriel showing up to somebody called me. And he's called in on gloss. So these watchers, and this is all back to the scattering Babylon and thirty two those son developed over we talked about this in our God. Correct. Correct. So the dream here is essentially that the watcher right comes down. He's called a holy one. He descends, and he shouts chop down the tree cut off the branches strip all the leaves scattered the fruit all the beasts and birds need to flee and just leave that stump in the ground. Oh, and then put a big iron bronze prison shackle around the stump. This tree totally and in the new grass little grow up after the chopping down. Let him be drenched with the do of heaven who's the him? So apparently this chop down tree has morphed into a human. And that's what it is going to be Nebuchadnezzar. The tree represents number three. He's having dreamed about himself represent as a tree. But the moment he's cut down and falls on the ground. He becomes a human laying in the wet grass. Got let him be drenched with the do of heaven and let him share with the beasts in the grass of the earth. Let them eat grass. Let his heart be changed from that of a human and let the heart of a beast begin to him heart. Yeah. At least has mind. Yes. Right. The member. There's no word for brain remind in Hebrew, okay. So a human this industry. Mm-hmm. Kingdom Nezar represented as the tree of life here to all the world, but he's going to be chopped down. And then he's gonna that trees going to morph into naked human laying in the wet grass. And then the naked human becomes a beast has the the image the dream. And we're told that this is a sentence decreed by the watchers and the watchers represent their gods delegates so this God's decision. Yeah. But that he passed on and let the watchers make to blow Babylon fall. It's the decision of the holy ones. So that all the living may know that the most high above who commissioned the watchers that he is the ruler over the realm of humans. He bestows rule on whom he wishes and he loves to set rule over the lowliest. Of humans. This is the dream that I never Canessa saw. And he gets Daniel. And Daniel interprets the dream sounds like he'd just interpreted his own. He just recounted the dream Daniel's gonna go on to say you were the tree. But what was the whole thing? I lost you when you were reading about God likes to something about verse chapter four over seventeen. This is the decree of the watches. So that all the living may know that the most high rules over the realm of humans, and he bestows rule on whomever. He wishes and he sets it over or on the lowliest of humans this last line of verse seventeen what is he talking about? So he just brought down the air again and proud Babylon and God is the one who assigns kingdoms rising and falling. And you know, what God takes particular delight in chopping down. Big arrogant, kingdoms think they're awesome. And he loves to set the opportunity to rule on the the humble, no names. And down king tola, and this is all from Abraham name. Abraham raven a name David the eighth for one become strong out with the sheep Hannah. Right. The one who has no children being exalted over penny non given birth to Samuel major motif. Yeah. When humans exalt themselves, they activate the inter animal and become beasts that God will chop them down exile them to the wilderness to be like the be with the beast. They act like and he loves then to replace them by exalting the humble, no name to rule in place of kingdoms. So good, so interesting. I mean, we've talked about this a lot as upside down kingdom doff Jesus rifts. I mean, he's all about this all about it. And when it's when it starts to get very practical. It's a very strange, you just don't see any leg stealth help type books. They're like, hey, look just be week. Yeah. Totally God God wants to like or the true way to honor God with whatever privilege authority influence that you have is to give that influence in thority away to others and include them exalt them in some way. There's different ways to embody that ethic. It's the upside down ethic, and if you're gonna keep it all yourself. He'll he's gonna choppy down. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Got this tree in the in the dream is a pretty RAD tree. It's to-. Yeah. Okay. Let's talk about this. Yeah. It's the tree of life. It's an image of Eden in the tree of life. So it's as if Babylon could if it wanted to become an expression of God's rule over the nation's it reminded me of when God told Adam said, hey there, they know good Nevil. Now, they're like us. They're gonna send out their hand and take from the tree of life. Yeah. Yeah. It's kind of the sense of like we're capable of so much. Yeah. But if we do it on our own terms is going to get really ugly. Holy that's right. But it might even look really beautiful might look beautiful just like the hanging gardens of Babylon. Yeah. Little edens. Beautiful but underneath it was abalon from from one perspective looked like the tree alive. Correct. Yep. Is it has the possibility to just like every human life has the possibility to today at every human institute and truly human and every human institution made up of lots of human has a chance to represent the rain and rule of. Oh god. But it all is about who gets to define the knowledge of good evil, and whether the tree will bear fruit that really just benefits everybody else, that's idea. But but this treat is benefiting. It's benefiting everyone else in the vision. Right. The bird the birds animals. Okay. Yes. So the point is whether the tree represents Babylon as it was or Babylon as it could be because the point is here's a tree. And then it's chop down. I guess the question is like what's wrong with this tree? When I just let the tree go just prune it as you need to. Yeah. Why why come and shop a down down like at this point? And it's not true. Because Nebot is out there throwing people in fired furnaces and stuff yet. Don't right. Yeah. So there's some gnarly stuff happening under the under the shade of this tree. Yeah. But in the dream. Yes, is it because actually this is the tree represents what Babylon could become based on what Nebuchadnezzar does in response to this dream oh interest. Because. After he gets Daniel in the room tells him, the dream Daniel interprets the dream. And he says, listen, you know, the the trees you and your future him. Correct. He says the trees going to be chopped down. And you're the chapter four of his twenty five you're going to be driven away. Exiled just like, Adam and eve, and you're gonna live with the beasts and eat grass to remember the socal. Yeah. This is what the animals were given in Genesis one. Yeah. So Daniel refuses to eat the forbidden food of aids the food a lot of food signed to the humans. Genesis one year Nebuchadnezzar now because he's going to be a rebel. Adam figure is going to be exiled with the base and eat the diet of the animals like the animals it is. But then the ultimatum comes in verse twenty seven he says now, therefore, okay may my advice be pleasing to you break away from your sins do righteousness breakaway from your Nichols by showing mercy to the poor. So that there may be a prolonging of your abundance. So that's the idea. God can use kingdom. He good. He could use it could. Yeah. This is if it's almost becomes Nebot Canizares test. In the garden. Yeah. I have quite put it that way to myself. But that's exactly his dreams about the garden thing. He could garden of get seventy Mona moment. Yeah. My will. But your will kind of thing. Like, this is the task at hand. Are you gonna handle it will you let your life in the kingdom you rule bear fruit for the nation's which here is acquainted by showing mercy to the poor. He just doesn't. Yeah. And that's Amos and mica ringing in our ears. The true worship of the two. Yeah. When this all gets practical. It's about taking care of other humans right that need it. That's right. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. You know, an institution that apparently represents God's way of ruling the world when it takes care of and gives itself away for the wellbeing of others, especially people who don't usually get access to the goods. Yeah. He says you have a chance so pretty different than just throwing people in boiling pots gold. The opposite. It's exalting people to opportunities to. Yeah. Yes, right. Okay. The story goes on verse twenty nine twelve months later Nebuchadnezzar was walking on the roof of his Royal palace and Babylon then the king. Forget the idiom. Yeah. The king answered and said, isn't this Babylon the great which I myself have built as a Royal residence for the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty. Yeah. Get into his head. You go sells. Here's this is Adam and eve moment while the word was in the mouth his mouth, a voice came from heaven, saying king Nebuchadnezzar your sovereignty is removed. You're driven away exiled from humankind way. But he's just wait. He's just impressed with himself for a moment. Come on come on. It's clearly this is ever done that you never walking. I never walked through your room. And you're just like look at this. This is nice got some nice stuff. Sure. Yeah. Yeah. But this is the culminating moment. I mean, it's it's the test. It's the moment the test. What do you mean? It's the test. Well, he just had the dream. And he just yeah. What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? Are you going to rule next story is about going on saying, it's all mine? From my power and my majesty Lori. Yeah. But it is interesting. How in one sense that should ring as like this? What a, you know. He did it you blew it. But another sense. It's like who hasn't done that. Of course. Yes. He's in. He's a human human. Yes. And so the dream comes to pass. He goes crazy wanders out into the Dewey grass eats the diet of the animals from Genesis one for seven periods of time. And then we're told the inverse thirty three his body was drenched with do until his hair grew like that of an eagles. Sounds like awesome hair eagle hair. Bingo, hair feathers and his fingernails were like that of birds so weird he's becoming a beast out there. He's growing feather for. And clause here. Something's happening here in the narrative portrait, he's becoming a mutant. Depicted as mutant human become animal mutant again saw leading up to Daniel seven. All right. So that's enough. We could do Daniels five and six, but it just be the same thing's going forward. Daniel five is Nebuchadnezzar son has the same test for him. He fails. Daniel six is another test for Daniel. Whether he's going to pray to the king of the means as if he's a God, he's he doesn't and he's thrown into a pit of beasts who usually crush bones. But instead, they just sit there peacefully with Daniel Daniel with animals Daniels. Sixes are new goodness. Sitting in a pit at peace with the animals Daniels at peace with violent beasts come on come on what do you want? So then we walk into the mighty chapter. We haven't talked about the literary design in literary design of Daniel Daniel, seven big big. Toilets. It's the center point here of the whole book, everything leads up to it and the rest of the book flows out of it. And this was the most important chapter for Jesus and understanding his identity his vocation where he got the phrase son of man. Where he got the phrase son man hotspot needed put on radio.

In jesus mighty name we pray amen may and there are many podcast scriptures that are supported in this and future podcasts for you to read in your personal full time those podcast scriptures are as follows ezekiel chapter twenty eight verses fifteen sixteen sixteen and eighteen matthew chapter four verses eight and nine march chapter eight verse thirty six deuteronomy after eight versus ten through fourteen first empathy chapter six first ten seasons chapter six verse twelve and finally revelation chapters seventeen and eighteen so i'm going to give a history of babylon because the patterns and ways is that god operates moves <hes> austin come from the old testament and his restated again in the new testament and just as god dealt with the ancient babylon of of the old testament he will deal with the new mystery babylon that is being built as we speak for the future now this discussion is about the fall of babylon and the root of all evil christ the lord the the hope of glory and soon coming king is strong and mighty and all house stronger than any evil hole in this world is greater than satan the originator of evil and for believers today. There's a scripture that we can stand on that correlates to what i just read that says greater is he that is in you and the he that is in you is christ jesus then he always in the world in the heathens in the world is satan your greater later so christ moore. Who is the savior redeemer. The one who preserves his people in the midst of this babylonian world's system is another example of god's glory in the earth. The word of god has shown own his preservation power. Throw the prophet of daniel the prophet excuse me and his three friends not niagara michelle in azariah also known as the three hebrew boys by their babylonian names sadak sadak michel and bendigo who were believers and followers of christ that were held captives uh-huh as slaves in babylon under the leadership of key never could messer who was one of the greatest kings wings of babylon under his reign babylon became the most powerful city state in the region and making himself the greatest warrior king in the known world in the book of daniel and jeremiah. Uh king nebuchadnezzar of babylon is seen as an enemy of god that god used as a scorch scorch to show his displeasure to the faithless jewish kingdom for moral and celtic sense sense deport a large number of jewish population after babylon conquer the southern jewish kingdom in five ninety seven b. c. which marks the beginning of the exile in jewish history history. The babylonians were polytheists meaning that they believe there were many gods odds and gotta sits that rule different parts of the universe their primary god was marked considered as the supreme deity over aw gods that had as many as fifty different titles the babylonians were heavily influenced by the sumerians thought not that the gods influence much of what happened to them and their lives could nazar hazard made an image of boll whose height was sixty cubits which is an equivalent of ninety feet all and set it up in the province of babylon now on the human level. Daniel is set against next the babylonian magicians who fail to interpret the kings drain but the cosmic housemate conflict is between the god of israel and those false gods of babylon <music> during a babylonian feast in the power of king belshazzar who is the son uh of so apparently king nebuchadnezzar was <hes> did and his son king belshazzar sorry took his place as acting king bat up king of babylon during this feast in his palace god's in writing appeared on the wall every one that was attending this feast literally saw saw a finger or hand or a hand of god writing on the wall that said said men men gay tackle up harse in the bible says that the kings count- in its chain uh and that the joy of his hips were loosened and his knees were knocking and he cloud for his astrologers jurors chaldeans and soothsayers the wise man of babylon to read the inscription on the wall and give the reinterpretation but not of the king's wise men could read or interpret the writing on the wall and the reason is some scholars say that <hes> that the kings wiseman could not understand e brewer through and that the writing was in hebrew language and then another portion of scholars believe believe that god does not give interpretation <hes> his interpretation to unbelievers and that is only insight site <hes> an revelation that is given to his own people but again none of the kings wise men could read or interpret the writing so the queen came to the king and listen to what she told him she said there is a man in your or kingdom who is in the spirit of the holy god. Oh my goodness. I'm telling you unbelievers relievers. No when you are serving god because this queen is not a believer lever of the lord jesus christ but she acknowledged a man in the kingdom who is the spirit of the holy gone mm-hmm so daniel suther in the scriptures that says that she acknowledged daniel by his hebrew name she did not call him by his babylonian name which was belshazzar but she acknowledged his true hebrew name daniel and he was brought before the king and the king said to daniel are you that daniel who is one of the captives from judah who my father the key raw duda. I have heard of you <music> that the spirit of god is in you and the spirit of god is on capitol here he bell sha sar dr was acknowledging the spirit of god the true and living god in daniel in that mind and understanding an excellent wisdom our founding you that you can give interpretations and explain commitments he offered daniel to own purple and have a gold chain around his neck and to be the third ruler in the kingdom daniel answered and said before the king you let your gifts be for your self and give your rewards to another yet. I will read the writing to the king and make no the interpretation in other words. Daniel did not <music> sail out to the king for his rewards but he remain inch to daniel did not want the kings gifts or the king's rewards. His relationship with god was more important than what any man in the earth could give him <music> now notice how daniel read and interpreted god's judgment on king belches sars babylonia keenum kingdom astor daniel ran and interpreted the writing on the wall which was very difficult and it was a very hard interpretation notice that the key did not get angry or upset with daniel in today's time it's difficult to create antiques the hard doc truths of god because people give even though god's preachers teachers aren't delivering a message from the word of god. It's not their own personal message but as gods message people spill get offended and they wanna close their ears and shut the mouths gospel preachers and teachers today but he did not get angry or upset with daniel and he actually actually commanded dan. You'll be rewarded though daniel didn't want his reward which turned out to be temporary raring anyway so daniel tall king belshazzar that god a neville khan nezar his father kingdom majesty glory and honor his heart was lifted up and his spirit was heart in pride so he was deposed from his kingly thrown and they meaning the enemies the meet the needs and the persians which will get to mater took his glory story from here because battled it then he was dreaming from the sons of maine men. This hard was made like the beasts exists and his dwelling was with the wild dunk with grass mike oxygen and this was literally and his body was wet with the dew was heaven knew or acknowledged that the most high god roles in the kingdom of men and appoints alr- it ever be tuesdays <music> now. This is daniel still speaking to king belzazar in annual said knew his son bill should sar and not pombal your heart although you do all of this belshaw knew the history of his father he know you are the god is giving him and how he lifted up his heart against god with the spirit of pride and how god dethroned the l. or depose him from his throne daniel toll bell she sorry you have lift it yourself up against the lord of heaven. This is the inscription that was written men men yeah tackle up. Many many god has no alberto your kingdom and finished it tackle you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting in your kingdom has been divided and david who the persians god got a judgment on the kingdom of babylon sounds like the u._s. west today because of the straw division this contry united states of america is being weekend from from the inside out making it vulnerable for engine of enemies that is literally already happening because because folks are entering and infiltrating into this country now just as god opened the gates of the city of thank babylon who had a bronze gate ran bronze gates than inner walls that were left on march aw that was easy for the persian king cyrus to inner and poker god is also brought down personal corporate and other types of government token domes that were reading from the love of money honey that was injuring and hurting many people in family the babylonian system system of the old testament as similarities and revelation of the forthcoming new world order the mystery mamoloni world system of the future that is that is being built as we speak today a day of mystery babylon will be like the fall of ancient babylon that that will be sure and in the midst of her worse blasphemies mystery babylon has been numbered in his is found wanting in the balances of the her disc on scales unjust gain lack of spiritual immoral god will soon return to settle accounts and make oh all right glory to god used daniel and his three three percents silence as crime example to show us today that believers can live in the midst of of a wicked verse perverse nation without defiling themselves in those types of cultures <music> because dan purpose than his heart not to defy himself <music> now. Let's talk about money money in and of itself and then later on we will talk about the root of all evil which is the love of money but i wanna talk about money in and of itself. Mommy is is one of the least trust worthy and most deceptive elements of mankind is unprintable and a vacillating guide to value for example when silver in goal becomes common s domes or rocks bella generates inflation which then as an adverse i bet on the value of the currency it devalued currency and bind our shortage of products products or services drives prices up while the availability of products and services causes the value of money to plunge or fall currency itself itself is subject to loss through best destruction and misuse money is so vulnerable that there is little no one can do to protect it money loses its ability liberty to protect its owner and the owner will soon be consumed with protecting their mining look at the number of scams in the u._s. of people driven brandin by the love of money who extracts money innocent people her portrayed it by deception ron ron and swindling. This car is in effect opens the door to a- preoccupation of folks wanting to protect their money. This is one reason just one of the reasons why jesus insisted and that his followers not to accumulate money and members of the early church did not quyen anything belonging to them was their own. It is a repeated and the bible the monetary value of items does not reflect the value that dot <music> on them jesus says that although one can purchase a pair of spero's in in the market for a single copper coin which is comparable to a penny this market value does not reflect flicked the great attention that a single one of these birds received from my goodness today <music> skewed values become predictable for items of low market value to figure high on god's list of for example. <hes> joseph was sold for less than the price ace of a slave for twenty shackles yet. He became the savior of egypt. Our lord and savior was betrayed for the price of thirty pieces pieces of silver which is a tragic miscalculation of his true status. My god today the day not to mention the widow's mite others on with this. She put into the temple treasury everything she she lived on but it it is not the market value of the widows gift that jesus founded poor helpless holy spirit. The apostle peter was irritated with sign who offered k. money in return for the power of the holy spirit my god today and we still see that in today's time with folks paying for prosthetic prosthetic word in churches today my goodness for it. Is this reason that those who lead the church must have no monness for money that is directly contrasted with the faira seats. It looked up sixteen fourteen <music>. Money is <music> reliable because people bossa fine the standards of measurement for personal gain in in other words they make the shackle look bigger than it actually is the arbitrary and flexible nature nature of monetary standards permits easy manipulation of value people. We'll tend to cling to money addicted to it's false security because money behaves like a spiritual retro narcotic deadening wants sensitivity to rally value which is why jesus said the money is a a master one to not be committed simultaneously which is at the same time the both god's values the man which is the arabic word for money wealth or property my god today all money honey is dead. Believe it or not all money is debt. America's currency is called farrell reserve notes in short f is in frank are in in is at the very very top of the dollar. No is consider a debt. It is an i._o._u. That promises to repay the borrowed money according to the terms of the note so take a dollar out of your your wallet or purse and look at and you will see there is no promise to pay you anything. <music> are in is an i o knew nothing be always think that gives the s art in any value is the writing in the upper enough corner of note that says this. This note is legal tender for all debts private public. Amd private skews me since annot is there the f. r. n. is really saying vis death is legal tender for all debts public elite private. The entire monetary system uses debt to pay for the payment of debt and the purchase of goods and services it is a debt based aced monetary system where all money is loaned into existence as debt through the dishonest honest scales of fractional reserve banking where bankers were creating money out of nothing <music> and the use of this honest accounting methods referred to as the modern day equivalent of diss honest scales sales that is mentioned many times in the bible. There is no real value in money money because it is not transferable into eternity. God places says value on the soul of a person that has more value than money. I'll say that again your soul so is more valuable than money so what kind of man to gain the whole world felt yes or one a man give in exchange for his soul. God help us today. Now we're going to talk about the root of all all evil timothy chapter six verse ten says for the love of money it is the root of all evil which while some coveted after they have aired from the faints and pierced themselves through with many sorrow i mc three three says that leaders in the church must beef free from the love of money and second timothy three and two list lovers of money as one of the sense that will be very prevalent in the last days of on which we live right now so what is is the root of all evil is the cause and effect <music> source or origin the starting point or beginning of something the love of money is not the root cause of every evil in the world because there is evil that has nothing to do do with the love of money for example. A rapist does not rate because of the love of money but the cause and effect of a rapist is to use their personal power over an individual however human trafficking or sex trafficking. The king is connected to the root cause for the love of money now. Let's define what love of money meets the love of money is an excessive attachment to material tyrian wealth to place trust confidence and assurance in money and what having money honey can achieve in life. The love of money is coveting and coveting produces the works works of the flesh which is the lust of the eyes the lust blow the flash and the pride of life my god today paul exhorts timothy and he tells tells him to insist on teaching these things and anyone who teaches otherwise does not agree to the sow now the instruction of our lord jesus christ and to the godly teaching but they are conceded understan- dan nothing that a half and on healthy interest it controversies immoral 's about words that result in envy strife malicious talk suspicions and constant friction between the people of corrupt minds who have been robbed of the troops and who that godliness leanness is a means to finance. You'll gain now. Here are the things that paul exhorted timothy but godliness with contentment is great game for we we were brought into this world with nothing and we can take nothing out of it but if we have food and in clothing we will be matere with that. <hes> those who want to get wrench will fall into into temptation and a trap and into many foolish unharmful desires plunge people into ruin ed and destruction or the love money is the root of all evil meaning any and all evil with a money tag attached is attributed to the love of money <music>. Some people eager for money have wondered from the fake anne pierce themselves with many griefs and saros the apostle paul warns timothy about false teachers who will seek to war in pervert the content of sound doctrine for their own reading pursuit of game imagining that godliness godliness is a means of gain these false teachers will do what they do for the fame and notoriety they they achieve along with the financial rewards. It brings greed. Uh which is an attribute of the love of money or is connected to the love of money causes people to do all all sorts of things for example if you look at the nunes courtroom t._v. shows and crimes. You can see that people are usually motivated by jealousy in the man or greed. The love of money is what motivates people to lie. She kill still gamble embezzle and murder. These are sands in crimes against humanity that destroys our horizontal relationships with each each other. Oh my god jesus clearly says in the sermon on the mount that no no one can serve two masters for he will either hate the one or love the other or be devoted it one and despise the other you cannot serve god and money matthew chapter six verse twenty twenty four and at the end of this passage jesus sake the lay up treasures in half <music>. These are treasures that thieves cannot breakthrough in steel these treasures where the moth and rust cannot corrupt jesus also likens the love of money to idolatry he refers to money as a master that we serve at the expense of serving <music> in the third tempt shit and the wilderness when jesus offer i'm sorry when satan idea indian when satan offered jesus mystery babylon on a very high mountain and demanded if he will bow down and worship him in exchange for the kingdoms of the world and their glory but these are sir sir away from me satan for is written worship the lord your god and him only shalt thou worship jesus said man shall not live by brenham oh but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of any scene takes first place in our lives other than the lord god it is i don in violation of the first commandment at destroys our vertical relationship with god ah for god's sake and his commandments thou shall have no other gods before me my god today <music> tainting against a mile on money which is very necessary today because of the prevalence the of the issue of money in churches today the teaching is necessary and that will remind an help prevent true believers believers from compromising getting caught up in the soon coming new world order mystery babylon what which is the antichrist's political religious system that will seek to control control mankind on a global level. God has given us an example that we are in the world but not of the world understanding that we are living in a hostile hostile ideology environment believers are commanded in scripture to love not the world neither the scenes that are in the world and if any one loves the world. The love of the father is not in him him for that is in the world. The last of the lust of the eyes and the pride of might is not the father but is of the world and the world away the lust there'a there'a but he that will abide forever little children l. dron it is the last time in as ye have heard the anti christ show no even now there are many anti whereby we know that it is the last time jesus the same and we are in the last days. We've been living in the last days since his departure where his ascension back to heaven after he rose or resurrected from the great but we are in the last of the last days and so with all of this being said i want to encourage you to raise in the spirit of daniel and the three hebrew boys and purpose in part not to defile yourself to down to the pressures of this coach coach my god today be weary in well-doing for a do season you shall <hes> if you think not stand for righteousness today and if you're struggling within this world system today today i ask exhort you to come out of this babylonian world system and trust guy on a new york to provide and supplying your knees. God is extending the offer of salvation from lung who may be listening that do not know christ search in the parting of your sins god gave his son jesus christ and the son gave his life and <music> shed his blood for the remission of your sands. Hope jesus gave hope today when the decision is yours out of darkness into his marvelous light to surrender your we'll to cry the start your new love trans for mational living that is here's the best light tour believers which is living decide to accept christ. Today <music> for tomorrow is not promised and it may be too late. If you are a believer today again that has been ensnared by the babylonia world system out renounced minal of materialism and money johny found trust in god schorr packed in life breath for jesus said seen first kingdom that is the priority for believers and all these things shall be added unto you matthew chapter six verse thirty three jesus saying god knows what you need and he will supply all of your needs thank you you are listening to transformational living the positing for eternity s spiritual millionaires soon the neon for the next episode.

"In a world of fake news. This is news. You can trust. Broadcasting live from Babylon. You're listening to the Babylon beep. Here are your infallible hosts Kyle man and Ethan. Nicole. Yes. This is the Babylon be podcast. I'm Kyle man. And this is Nicole, and we're jumping right in here with our second ever podcast, right in the history of mankind. We're going to make a big deal. Every time fanfare trumpets, this is the hundred and forty third battle on be podcast of all time ever made. There will never be another and you are listening to it. You were born at the exact right time in history where you would get to hear the second the second Babylon beep. The sequels always a little bit better than the first one. That's always how it goes. How how was your week, Ethan? Well have a weird thing going on. I know much self promotion. I can do but I have a book. Well, I guess it's actually in the Babylon store. My book that it's competing with the Babylon book called bears want to kill you. Yes. It's not as good as the babble on people. But that's the bagel it's all right. But there's actually a lot more fun to look at say he did a great job with the color graphics of bears. Lots of audience. Yeah, yeah, yeah. My book, I tried to get an Amazon totally self published it and I got it on kindle, but I tried to print myself because Amazon does their own printing horrible looking. So I printed, it myself through this fancy company, the Kickstarter and Don just decided for they never really give me reason. But like they won't they won't carry my book. So I have my garage full of books and they won't they won't let me sell it on my whole plan. So I posted this crazy letter that I got Amazon saying, like sorry, we're not going to deal with you anymore on this issue. And we probably won't Email you back on this, either really like is like a cold break-up letter from, like just ex girlfriend. Totally just typed up by a robot. Yeah. Cool like the my screen iced iced over. And I just nonchalantly posted on Twitter, kind of updating people on the progress of my whole Amazon tobacco because this is like another thing about that. Like I found out my book taken down the moment after I finished interview, Jonah Goldberg while I was in Washington DC trip that I paid for the book telling everybody was on Amazon, then, like multiple interviews paid for all the travel anyway. So here I am. It's not an Amazon. It's not gonna be on Amazon. And but I got this like crazy viral thing that happened where everybody thinks that Amazon's trying to censor me like all the my right wing followers. Even though there they have the kindle version. So I've gotten a lot of sales based on people thinking they're trying to censor. My bears are trying to censor from Amazon or something. What's the conservative angle of this bears? Trying to kill you. I don't I've seen a lot of. Because the you because of your connection to the Babylon they'll get DM's like, like they're whispering to me. You people kinda love that stuff. And yeah. There is definitely like a conservative culture thing where if any little thing happens. Yeah. They're already censorship. Yep. Our being censored. Yeah. You yeah, I think one time I went to go log onto our little babble on be secret Facebook group. And it's like this group is inaccessible, you know, and I'm like, oh, this is it is. And because there's legitimacy right? Like sometimes it does happen like that happening. Oh, it's just a it's just yeah. Been funny to see like how people are like it's funny that went viral in it. That's kind of that kind of thing, people love that internal letter that they see were like we're not going to carry your book, and yeah. People like oh, you know. Yeah. Went crazy that tweet with that. I just put a screen grab of that message. And like I've sold the hundred books because of that tweet. Yeah. I think people feel like they're part of some secret resistance, you know, see something like that. Yeah. So that was my week. Yeah. Oh, you had a more exciting week the night when we're recording. This Father's Day was yesterday. So I had a nice fathers day weekend. I had a lot of meat. Yeah. Gars. We had steak for lunch. Okay. And then I just passed out and took a nap for the rest of the day, ideal, Father's Day. I always, I don't like eating out on Father's Day. I just get permission to buy like the nice expensive meat in girl myself. Oh, yeah. Hardcore like that. Well, this is a nice segue into our topic of the week, top of the week, we're gonna be talking about fathers, so everyday, what we do every time on this podcast. What we do is we cover the news through three stories from the Babylon being and then we'd have a topic of the week and our topic this week is talking about our fathers and what the meaning of father hood is in relativistic culture. Every week there are stories lease are some of them. I've just missed. Six calls from North Dakota. I dunno gets up gone. A lot of business holdings, recording the a lot of real estate business holdings. It's the mount Rushmore. Well, speaking of running your own business. Our first story this week. On the Babylon be essential oils for men are now available essential oils, of course, are typically more of a. Feminine venture. Would you say, yeah. I it's the thing that thing it's like the magic cards of females. I think like they all sit around collecting them and talking about all the magic hours and all the special like how they raise your h p points and stuff. And like in the men and like I don't know what is going on right now. But they're very expensive. It's definitely like that, you know, you build your magic the gathering deck, and you're trying to find the synergy between the different cards, and the women are like it's all about the combinations right for home schoolers, should we explain what magic the gathering cards are. Yeah. It's like I don't even really know what they are. I was gonna say it's like Pokemon cards but they wouldn't even know the home schoolers wouldn't even Pokemon cards. Oh, you know, there was a, there was a Christian knockoff of magic magic called rebellious addiction. Here's the here's we're getting off topic. But here's the weird thing. So in redemption you played like like you were like angels. And you're fighting over the souls of people, but like Christian games always have this weird thing where like you have to play the bad guy, too. So you're had like all these demons and you had to go stop the other guy from saving. So whoever saved the missiles, first wins, and then it's like, but I'm gonna play Satan and block your state in the they have like they have all these demon cards on you. Have you have cards that are like temptation throw temptation, so it's weird darker than men? Dr. Darker a little bit. So, yeah. So this essential oils for men to basic ideas, were, you know, we kind of, imagined, what would be what kind of essential oils would men like this is one of those jokes. That was so obvious. I can't believe we haven't made it till now it's like I saw a couple of comments on our Facebook page, people said, how is this, not a repulsed? Yeah. From, like, Howard look. Offers everytime, I strike on a gold idea like this. It's like you sit around and, and the little workers in your brain like bring these ideas up. And I'm like, there's no way that, that were the first ones. Yeah. And I go and Google it. And there's like if you go central oils from it goes to all the like essential oil in serious. Yeah. And it's like if you combine lavender with black pepper. You know, a lot of men like that sets very manly oil. So no. But we imagine all the things like bacon. Grease, you know, MMA fighter sweat lawn slippings the sweat of an actual. That's where I got this idea was, I was outside. And I was I was pushing my lawn mower around. I know you don't know your own lawn. Ethan actually not a real man opt. Yeah, but I used to. And that smell was just like I can stand out here all day. I'm not even a big like yard work or like I'm not very handy. Yeah. But it's like I smell that. And I'm like this is a job will done. You know it's the end of a job. It is tiring the home Home Depot lumber rile, that's another one where you're standing there. And again, I'm not super handy. But if I have to go pick up would for anything or pick-up some tools, and you just stand there. I guess I'm a real man every man and Home Depot walks with way, more confidence than they do if they're walking through like JC Penney. Or something way, different feeling. Yeah. Then you just feel like an idiot when the when the worker has to tell you where the screws are whatever because you just. Right. Screw. That's how I am over this rot and break in not work as my whole thing in a fall down in a year. I don't know. Yeah I'm total more. And then the thing about home people is you're always is you're always having to go back. You know, that's me is constantly go back. I got a four five six times because I get the wrong size nut. Whatever his loved that. There's a mean of the, the one does not simply no one does not simply them. This win does not simply brings me bore. Mary, as one does not simply go to Home Depot one time. That's perfect. So here's some other sense that we have for central for men Cuban cigars. That satis mine. Making our listeners, very uncomfortable reading exhaust from an American muscle car. I almost just wanted to say, like unleaded gas link. You're sitting there, just putting gas in your minivan. And you're like that's a real Manley, smell a freshly poured stout. Beer. Nice. You know, I was gonna make that I would have punched you. But yeah, I know that not not a fan of. As the scent of just fired assault rifle authentic, buffalo wing extract. It would be a sense, so you have to actually press oil out of whatever you're talking about. Right. So, yeah, you know, and that was one of the struggles is writing this is this just like since, because I'm sure they actually have like a candle or something for men. That's not like peaking, like I'm sure thing. So it was trying to be like, yeah. You actually squeeze this thing into, you know, yet to capture the chemical pressing it or whatever. Yeah. I think I had that on it because I did the artwork and you can see in the little techs that, like the cigar the Cuban cigar when like they actually pressed like old cigar, butts and squeeze all the oils out. It's like disgusting. It all becomes when you. So man, if you're jealous of your wife's essentials collection, and you want to catch them all just like she gets to catch all the essential oils. My wife and I just she had these customers essential oil holders that you bought from these people that they just drill holes that are the perfect size for essential oil oil bottle sit in into. Yeah. And they're in. Repurpose would seeking great this like cute little display for your essential oils to all fit into. I think I think women like like having a solution for things, especially when it comes to health, and like their kids, 'cause I with it, because it's like this, you know, my, my kid has a cough. I don't know what to do. And it's like it's like it's like do we really know it's working not really but it feels like we're doing something. So, like just put some of this oil, and it feels good that it's like something that came from something so natural. Yeah. Like, really, like squeeze gazillion lemons and got this essential oil. Yeah. If you would like to get involved with the babble on bees multilevel marketing essential oils company, B, oh, we're going to be on B oil. We'll do a free honeys you at your house. Honey? Where you squeezing essence of bees can use it on your enemies. All right. What to do? Our next story. What do we got? Here. We got Elizabeth Warren. She was in news, actually, she wasn't Joe Biden was in the news. And we, we spoofed, Joe Biden, didn't we Joe Biden said that he was going to cure cancer heavily on the actually read the story, Joe Biden. Yeah, he, he promised that, if he gets elected he will cure cancer. That's impressive. So we said, Elizabeth Warren promises to cure smallpox, which we also another one, Joe Biden. He says, he's going to cure cancer, and then. Oh, yeah. That's right. It says which going back to our previous toss essential oils. We already have essential oils. What do you need? Joe Biden for Joe Biden. Joe Biden promises to cure central oils, as though no promises to cure cancer. As those central oils, don't already exist. He's so ignorant, if he just had the terra cancer set that. The cancer kit. That's messed up. Yeah. We're, we're gonna get shut down. So it is it is. It's a good thing that you're listening to the second ever by final. If the final one it's all over the as back backed Elizabeth promises secure. So this is actually a little when I write humor like this. I'm I. It's hard for me to really think of all the angles that people could get offended by something, you know. There's so many, but this is actually a little edgy in the sense that, you know, smallpox was actually a disease than did harm indigenous peoples in America. You know. And, and so we always get a little pushback when we do in Elizabeth. Warren Indian joke, especially when something like smallpox, you know, and I think that intention is never really like, let's make fun of smallpox are, let's make fun of these people who got killed. But yeah, to me, these jokes are always just like it's just the. It is the low hanging fruit joke, but it's just like it's, it's almost to me, it's so funny because it's so obvious dumb just a dumb obvious joke. That's not brilliant. But what I like about it is that it's playing on Elizabeth Warren's, like, like, totally just being ignorant of, of, like, I'm gonna cure smallpox, you know. Like, she's pandering to native American, like anybody's, still buying her little stick, you know, I can't with that one because we did one with Elizabeth Warren a while back where she shows up at some campaign rally just in full Indian guard with like this. And we all sorts of stuff and we just slammed like every stereotype of native Americans into the headline. There's all this outrage in that, and which, whatever, but like to me it was hilarious that she was. Yeah. Stated that she's disconnected. Yeah. The ideas, not trying her best to be a genuine Indian in coming off a total racist. Yeah. The is not. Oh, you know these stereotypes about native Americans are actually true, but rather she has no idea what it's like to be a real native Americans just pulls everything she saw Peter Pan. About native Americans and. She's planning on all the stereotypes, my daughter's obsessed with Peter Pan. She just watched it again, the other day that songs crazy in that. What men? It's one of those things where it's weird. That's a movie that would not get made I know. And I'm still waiting for it to be like waiting to go on there to our, our Amazon account to because it's bought it through Amazon. I'm waiting to go on there and it's like the screens black. That's like sorry, this movie's been removed. It's unavailable. Yeah. Actually, you know, they just came out with that Aladdin remake, and I was hearing people complaining about the old one in the context of his release that old one was how so many stereotypes, and so problematic. And I'm I'm just kind of like I don't even you know, I don't even get it. It's like it's like if I go and watch a one of the Disney films, it's about, like a European white. Yeah. You know, and it's like oh, they didn't really have, you know, unicorns and Pegasus. It's like obviously playing on tropes from like, the, you know, the medieval times, or playing on his fantasy thousand one nights, you know, playing on all those all those things, people are really into, you know, and it gets on a clicks, hate, which that might be good for next topic. This is this, this headline was written by one of our best writers, Frank flaming. We praises everything, and he said, he's have a section of the show retort about how great Frank is for like an hour. It'd be a topic Frankel be top main topic. We could do a best of the best of Frank Fleming in his smile. He's got a great smile. So Frank actually pitch. This article, like I don't know six months ago, and I put it in our trash heap to migrate Shane really six months ago, I put it in fool. I put it like in our saved for later. Maybe one day we'll run this. Pile. And then I, I was just flipping through it like trashing of stuff. And I saw this headline. And why did we not run this? You know, it's funny like six months later, we see something in a fresh light, you know, and this is actually our standards of lowered or standards just Siskind much lower every day. We need to gradually cut it. And yeah, so this, here's a headline study hate clicks are a major source of web traffic and also the Princess bride is a trash movie that only stupid people like. So again, the Babylon be we're not just going to Aaron laugh at our own headlines. But we will affect Franks headline. We have the liberty to laugh at someone else's headline Frank, so. There's this whole culture in the internet, where websites figured out that people don't click on articles and the Babylon bistro goes with that because so much of our joke is in the headline. Right. And so what people figured out was if you just if you just barf out the most garbage opinion. Yep. You know, everybody's gonna share it, and re tweet it and go these people are trash you talked about this last week with the which one was it? About all the different company might have been the subscriber one, but all the different companies taking on the gay pride logo. There's cutting through the but the idea that they're taking a stance on something which that's a little different. But like still like the idea that you're creating gonna controversy or stance or something that gets people to share whether they're whether they like it or not. Yeah. So in you'll see like this all the time, and especially with something that's like there's a beloved movie or beloved. Yeah. And it's why the office is actually the worst television show ever aided, you know. And, and it comes with this place where it feels really like disingenuous. You, you don't think they actually believe this, you know, he just they just found some guys where to write some garbage he's going to get everybody because everybody wants to have their opinion like something to launch, you know, it's hard to just create ideas, I've nothing, but to, like piggyback off of something that raged you. And then you can like. Really jump up on a soapbox about it. Yeah. Yeah. We actually got a lot of heat meal about this one. Really? Yeah. We got a lot of people emailing us. Real actually, the Princess bride is a great movie. I saw a lot of those amazes me. How can you not see that? The joke is directly right in front of your face in the headline. It. Yeah. Hey clicks are the only way to get people to click on stuff and also, I'm pretty sure we all love the Princess bride. Like, I don't know. Anybody who doesn't like it. I'm sure there are people like that. Yeah, there's people, very sad people. My I didn't grow up in a household that ever had heard of or watched the Princess bride, I went over to my friend's house like in junior high or high school or something. And his dad's like have you ever seen the Princess bride? We're gonna watch this right now. And it was just it was just this. Revelatory moment for me. You know, like, wow, this is amazing. I think I, I watched my kids it wasn't a big movie in our family. So I did kind of retroactively like it after I grew up and loved just fairytale tropes stuff, and, and just the, it's a hilarious movie, and well done. But yeah, I know my daughter was not crazy about it. She was a little young and there's people dying and stuff. And I think I can't remember exactly what it was, it set her so much, I, I guess I haven't introduced my kids yet. Okay. They've kind of they've kind of seen it, you know, walking by I watch it now. And then, but I've never liked sat down and said, yeah, I think it's going to be one of those things like having the talk with your kids at the talk. I well, no. But I it's a similar moment in childhood like, son, man, you know, that you have to have known talked for you turn movie on. I actually a book on that I actually introduced the Princess bride your children. I actually just just finished reading the book for the first time I was curious. I heard it wasn't as good as the movie L. It's great. It's been tastic. Yeah. I got I got to read it. You gotta read every line is it's one of those things where he just managed to make every line amazing. You know. And but, you know, it's funny about it is he actually wrote the movie too. So it's one of those really. Yes, the, the movies just as good as the book, but they're good in different ways. So I definitely recommend you know. And Ricky, we always go back to charleen the chocolate factory. But the movie says it's written by Roald Dahl, but I believe it was changed so much. He like disowned it because I was just watching my daughter is obsessed with it. Now, she's watching the movie over and over again just Larry because she's four. And when I showed a movie, she's like how they make a movie so fast freaked out. I found it ain't she's had the book she's wrapped around the book like holding it like she was like hugging it, and watching the movie that's great because the first books that I read to her, like all those, she's so excited, but yeah. So that's interesting tidbit on that says they're open this role. Dull like sole screenplay writer. Yeah. I feel like when the writer of the book gets their hands on the movie. It's usually not great like two different skill sets. You know, a lot of times you'll see that the author was super involved. And it's like they couldn't kill their babies to make the thing work, you know. Yeah. Unless they offer like has some experience writing screenplays and can thinking that way. Like I think there's certain people that could do that. But yeah, there's some hilarious samples like Steve. In king? I was about to mention Stephen King in the shining where his where he didn't like the original. And then he went in the actually got you managed to write one for ABC. I didn't see that one. It was like twenty years ago, they came. No. There was the shining like miniseries that came out on ABC and I was like Stephen king's actual vision. It was terrible. And let's love about maximum overdrive. I've ever seen that I have never seen them. That was the whole idea that like he, he didn't add where he was like his his the preview. Stephen King, standing there talking to you like a dub dub f- wrestler. WWE WCW, whatever now ethan's pointing his gun finger winning his finger out. You like like he's going to take down. He's like, when you need a job done right. You gotta do it yourself. Stephen king. You can look it up on YouTube, and he's like it's like scream. He wrote the screenplay he directed it. He did on south, there's no book like he made this movie and, and actually know Yardley Smith, who she's a character. She is in the movie, the girl. The woman who plays Lisa Simpson's voice. She was an actress in that. And she was telling me about so how bonkers the set was and just it was so disorganized. And apparently, Stephen King says he was like on drugs, the whole time, he made that movie. It's insane movie. That makes no sense like all the cars and stuff, and mechanical things come alive and attack everybody. And there's really no explanation. That's an amazing. I know he had to that series, the lawnmower, man. Did you ever see those? I saw the mood. There's one movie. Right. Or they make more of them. I think there was like a whole series. Thank you. Right. It's going land before time and they got increasingly Batty, and it's just like would even I remember the first one had that monkey? Yeah. Like a diaper, and like a robotic helmet. I it's completely different from the short story and the short story is horrible and just very weird. And in and somehow the movies, even weirder. I don't even remember we're talking about. Oh, yeah. We're talking about how we're talking about how terrible the Princess bride is. Mino-. Yeah. We love the Princess bride, and definitely don't share this podcast with your friends, and tell them, you got to hear how horrible these guys opinions are on the Princess bride. We don't want you to do that right now. The Babylon B's topic of the week. All right. We had it for a main topic. I don't know. I actually for this topic I need to motionlessly prepare myself, okay because we're gonna talk about fathers fathers day week. So maybe we can get some violins in the background or something here too. We need that sound guy that we need their father abandoned you as a child. I love my father. That's why I've just, you know, we need we need it sound guy that sits there on the on the mixer board and, and plays like the funny sound effects like the effects. Yeah, I can add them retroactively. But it sounds the same not the same. We need somebody calling we'll put a job, call out there, so fathers, we recording this podcast, the day after Father's Day as previously mentioned. So the topic of fathers is near and dear to our hearts, Ethan. Why don't you give us a little little bit of what fathers mean to you, maybe a little bit about your father? I have a crazy story in that realm. So I don't wanna go off. You can try to interrupt me if I go to Farkas, interrupting you? My dad is the biggest character on earth. Like I didn't realize when I was a kid. What a bizarre situation. I was in, but my family, my parents, divorced, when I was eight, and I think I mentioned a bit about this and previous podcast. But my dad was homeless for a period of time. And he was he had been an aspiring opera singer in New York before I was born. And so when I was a kid he was a homeless, Pentecostal opera singer, and so he would like go bonkers in his Pentecostal church in an opera voice like a voice trained to like sing to auditory without Mike's, and I actually was there one day when the pastor took him aside and said, Tom, if you can't tone it down might need you to, like find another church, and he was heartbroken. I've, I've heard of I heard a story from a pastor of mine once where he was going to bible college, and they pulled girl aside, because she was moving too much like during the, the worships like. Like, you know, dancing at school. I love that the Pentecost. Like if I'm scared we have Pentecostal listeners be mad. But this the idea that if the spirit's leading the person to do this. Can you stop them? Okay. All right. That was the spirit. But see, Baptist don't believe in the Holy Spirit. So it's okay. So you were saying, yes. So I I we actually would sleep in his van with him on weekends, and then eventually he just left. My dad had this way that he dealt with problems in his life, where he just kind of, once it got overwhelming enough, he just up and leave. Yeah. I think we all have that tendency. Yeah. But he'd really was to an extreme like my mom was his fourth wife. I believe. And so he had a crazy past with long story we've found a long lost sister recently. But so I didn't have a dad threw a good chunk my childhood, and I also had a mom, who was very dad. I dunno if anti data's. Right. But she swore that she wasn't going to remarry because she didn't want us to go through that for some reason. And so she just decided she do it herself. She's had this bitterness about it gone on my dad, and those kind of thing that she always kind of carried through life was that or through my childhood that she doesn't need. No, man. And she doesn't need she'll, she'll kind of fill that void of dad. She's a strong beautiful black woman. Doesn't need. I don't mean no man, that's through. She didn't talk like that. But so yeah. I think that, that was very formative for me, though, like being raised finding out that I'm going to turn into one of these, and I'm not talking bad about my mom. She's a great amazing woman who worked her behind off. She worked three four jobs at a time. It's just I think it was partly like the spirit of the times the rising feminism, but also just my mom, she's very independent hard worker. And she, you know, she never really actually did. She did remarry but. They didn't really have. They weren't very cooperative. But anyway, so how did you become so manly me so mainly without this without like joke, right? This. I did seek it out. When I got older, I have there's a lot of men in my life who became part of my life who you know. But I think I did seek it out. I really had to decide at some point like I wanna be a good dad and a half to just decide what a dad is. And what my dad was really wasn't the dad, and we've actually people that know axe cop the comic made I have my little brothers twenty years younger than me. His dad is my dad like twenty years difference in my dad's got an amazing wife now who has had a huge effect on his life. She's been able to tame the beast inside of them. So he's very old. Now. He. He has a tough time processing his mind is kind of starting to go. But, but yeah, there's been a lot of him him remarrying and having another batch of kids actually brought us back together in a lot of ways. I think I think we never would've I think our connection would have kind of fizzled out over through my life as I got older. But because of them having the second batch of kids, kind of brought us back together. So that's, like that's like the nutshell version of my background. Reader's Digest listeners digest and is interesting that, that you kind of came to a place where you realize how important father is your kids realize out of like a absence. Yeah. Rather than than by having a really good influence. And just yeah. I think that's one thing for me. You realize when you dive in, and it was because of wise men that had been in my life, who had just said, like you're made to be a father. It's in you God made you to do it. And when I just dove, in and did it I realized, like, yeah, there's a thing in me. That's part of my makeup, that, you know, when I when I seek out God, and like say need help. I was made for this job. It's not an easy job. It's like you know. Yeah, that's kind of cool. How God is really gracious to us, sometimes when we're like growing up in a bad situation, or don't have a good influence because conventional wisdom's like you know, if you don't have if you don't have a good meal influence. You're just going to end up garbage, you know, you're gonna end up in a really bad situation. And that's when reason that when one area where I feel really lucky because it was actually through young life. Some really good male role models kind of found their way into my life. So, yeah, that was, it was actually more jock. Like guys, I was like a grunge guy when I was in high school like I long hair, and I hated everybody had like Barbie doll heads severed. Barbara L heads around my neck and stuff. You were like sid from Toy Story. One trying to be the psycho kid just scared wailing up toys in the back and I hated Jocson rednecks, as like in a northwest. Yep. Oh, yeah. Think Pearl Jam fan and a walking stereotype, totally like, because you're Pacific northwest right civic northwest Pearl Jam listener. And I thought I was so original. Yeah, you're going to rebel about being exactly like everybody else around you. But my young athlete who was a total jock, like, and he fit every, like stereotype of the jock type guy and but he also broke it because he was like the most loving person ever met. And, and. Yeah. So was like a that was a big as a big moment for me to find somebody like that. That's great. So why are you done? Yeah. You go. Are you quite finished? My could go on for way way too long, we'll speak scatter. Some more of my life story through other podcasts listening to the Babylon therapy session. This is going to be big one. Well, I have an awesome dad and now I feel terrible because he lucky aids and doing awesome, ethan's over here weeping. And I'm gonna tell you how great, my dad is I have an awesome dad, and obviously huge influence on me. He was. He actually put the space shuttle into orbit. Oh, really? Yeah. I've heard of that. I think I posted on Facebook yesterday and it sounded like a joke because I'm like my dad is awesome. He put the space shuttle into orbit. Because you have to praise your down on Facebook or it doesn't count, the air doesn't even though none of our desert, like on Facebook, actually reading. But yeah, I posted like my dad put the space shuttle into orbit, and, you know, he scares bears away. And which is true. You know, he he's got this video where this bears like charging at him through the through this lake. And like you were lake. Yeah, he's like he's like next to this pond in, if I remember right next to this pond in the forest and he was like on his solo backpack or something. And he's like he's like videotaping this mother, this mama bear. And she like jumps in the water and starts charging out him. And some of the video, he's like go away here. Go over there. Yeah. And it just it kind of years off right before it gets too. This is amazing should go and YouTube. That's not what my reaction would be to. I think that's what you're supposed to do, though. Right. Like you're supposed to yell at it. You're the experts, there's a lot of propaganda. It's all in my book. That's a nice segue into our advertisement for this brought to kill you not available on Amazon. Right. But it's available in the store and my store. Yes. Oh, my dad was my dad did the space shuttle program till that got canned that serious. What the shuttle? Yeah. Yeah about you're joking. Does he need to everytime? Yeah. My dad has not he's actually so growing up. My, my he will dirty word growing up. You know, you'd bring your dad or whatever into you bring when your parents into school to do the career day or whatever. No, not mind. But yeah, well, those of us who had good fathers. And he would come in and do a presentation on the space shuttle, and how they put it into orbit and Linda Cam readjusting my perception here because I thought that was Kyle joke yet. No. And you really did okay? Did he actually did? And but, but all the all my classmates would be like your dad's the astronaut right. And eventually, you start saying, yes, yes. My dad is an astronaut. That's crazy. But, you know, it's my dad took us camping, you know, we around here because you're from here you, so, yeah. Gornja Boeing, Boeing has has specific as out here, Orange County. Interesting. Yeah. Okay. So so he does he does like wind and load Alice's but he was a good father, even this accomplished that he something this amazing. He's still. He's a good time for you. He's a good is not to play the song. So he knows funny. Can't it's copyrighted growing up. The thing I remember most was like he would read us bible stories, and, and it was like he had like three bible stories that we're his favorites and he would go back and review and the prophets of. No, not the bears. If you would like to know more about bears checkout, ethan's book, bears want to kill you. Right. But not on Amazon. My he'd liked. He liked shadow Michel in indigo. Okay in the fire, right. He liked some nineteen which, I believe, is the stars. Declare the heavens declare the glory of God, you'd let us story. It's no story. But like it was it's like because he was in. He's an astronomy. Okay. And then rockets and stuff. So he was always big on like apologetic. Nice guys as it sounds like he's very science. And you still believe in this backwards, religion stuff. Yes, this crazy backwards religion where you got your big brain, and he would tell stories about talking to other people at his job. You know that because I'm sure he's kind of like a like an outlier there. Yeah. In the in the stem fields. But yeah. So there was like there was like three or four stories that he loved that he would always go back to so every time now if I go, and I read the story of Shadrack Michel, benigo remember, exactly like the inflictions that he would read it in and the, you know, I think it's a huge thing you know, raising raising our kids to love the bible into into kind of make faith their own. That's obviously fathers a really important for them. Am I that would in his van where we have sleep with him would make stories up on the spot because we didn't have any books, and they'd just be full of farts and diarrhea and stuff. I thought it was amazing like, really the idea that you'd make story up on the spot, though is in the bible. It was the idea that he could make up a whole story that has rolling laughing and that story had not existed a moment ago, and he was just making it was complete garbage but it was hilarious to me that was a big memory, my dad, my dad being a stem guy science Bill. He was not creative like I'm gonna make up this story right now. Yeah. You know, you know, it's funny is one time I asked my dad like, hey, you know, I, I don't even what the question was like, you know, something about throwing baseball and like within fifteen minutes. He's got this giant chart drawn out on a yellow legal pad showing a diagram of throwing baseballs and wind resistance and, and momentum and inertia. And I'm like four years old. I just wanted to catch. Yeah. My then another funny contrast with our dad's. My dad is totally not at all about apologetic. He's very much a spiritual. Experience only thing like God, redid you kind of voice in your head. Yeah. Yeah. Anyway, we're getting kind of all the topic of like fatherhood, but that's like an inter interesting introduction, and you probably have a million things you can say about your too. Yeah. Keep going. Another episode. It's just Kyle's dead. We have him as a guest. Well, I guess the real point that we wanted to make if there is a point or the, the topic, we wanted us ghost was father's being kind of an anchor for people in this relativistic culture, where so much of the culture is telling us fathers don't matter. Manhood doesn't matter. Million masculinity is always toxic. Not that not that masculinity. Can't be toxic sometimes, but just the mere mention of something semi traditionally, Manley Zina's toxic in so many places. Yeah. And to me, like, that's the thing that the whole debate about the definition of marriage to me, always came down to that. Like, are we saying by the idea that men and women are completely interchangeable that there's nothing unique that either actually has to offer? And if they don't then, like the father really is like replaceable unneeded thing, and we had the story we should probably mention in the story this week we. Put up. Another great Frank article Father's Day, nation celebrates existence of completely unnecessary parent, and there's a picture of the of the father, and they're giving them the gifts. Yeah. Get a lot of angry emails about a lot of people didn't get that actually, I think that's going to be hate mail this week. Probably is. Yeah. A few minutes. Oh, yeah. We may ready for that, but yeah, and obviously, that's, that's being sarcastic and using satire to make that point. But we're making a big deal about these fathers when they're not even needed just dispose. Celebrating a thing that nobody actually need who needs them anyway, you know, you can probably artificially make babies now with just a woman, and you know, you don't even need the guy. So what's the point? And that's kind of, like, you know, when you look at like relativism, and where do we come from, you know, and that's kind of a whole, that's kind of the whole deal is that if we're just apes highly evolved apes on this planet, you know, it's like, well, who cares? If you have a father or not, it doesn't matter. But if there's something. I read this great can I bring up JR token, please? I read this great, quote from J or token, this week that in a letter that he wrote to his son, when he was in the war, and he said something like there is something about there's something eternal about the relationship between a father and son. And that was that was super deep that there's something eternal in true about that. It's not something that's just this evolved relationship. And it's discardable. Yeah. There's so much to say on this topic like even just the experience of like, because I was tweeting the other night on Father's Day. I I'm sad for guys who just by choice. Choose not to be fathers or anybody chooses not apparent like I know there's some people that just aren't up for it or whatever. But, like there's something about getting to a point life. And then suddenly, you're re experiencing life, your child. You're watching them. Everything you went through again. And now you have to impart wisdom on that it's sort of like the idea that like if you read a book once like you learn it. But then you read it again, and then you're like a third time in like take notes or whatever like it's kind of like having kids, and then I, I imagine having getting married having kids and having grandkids. It's kind of like that. Like that's why you get more wisdom. You're going through thing again but through different pair of eyes. Yeah. And being able to share like interests or like we were talking about the Princess bride, you know. Yeah. More exciting to see their eyes light up. Like I said, I just read Charlie chocolate factory to my daughter, and it makes me so excited to see how excited she is by her. First book. Yeah. There's something like were God creates us, and then we go and create other life, or like as creative people, you know, we, we write articles and make images and stuff. And like so there's something that, that we're, we're reflecting the image of God in that we create, you know, and it's a similar thing when you see your kids like draw something, you know, whether it's a stick figure when they're really young or they're older. And they start like staple in together their own little comic books. You know. And it's like this is amazing. This is what I did when I was a kid, you know, and it's just weird to create something that then goes off and becomes its own thing. And like creates. That makes any sense. No. Yeah, it's amazing. How much meaning and how much affect on this world and how it specked on your life? All comes out of the one decision have one child, unlike it's, it's. You can't quantify it it's amazing to think about it the other way like my parents. Do they like see like articles that I write or they listen to this podcast? And they're like my son is crazy. You know, he's talking, I have an anecdote me and you into do a. Went to an interview in LA. And we were coming back and your parents called. And you had him on speaker. Right. One of the most adorable things I've ever experienced like your dad. He's like just keeping tabs on everything you're doing. He has like he knows like every article checking in on ya. And he's so proud of you. I forgot about that. Yeah. Actually, my dad if we can go back to the topic of Kyle's, damn my, my dad reads, the Babylon be. But he only reads it on on Friday morning. Okay. So everything Friday morning. He goes on Friday, morning clicks on the view all stories link and then goes through and reads all the stories that we posted in the previous week. Wow, has he has, you know, twenty minutes, set aside for it or whatever. He just goes power reads like nasty style. I think he reads all the headlines and then clicks on the ones that grabs attention and read the whole story. And then he emails me like top five stories of the week. He's. I get his commentary on it as awesome. Yeah. That was actually funny phone call. It reminded me of something out of Seinfeld where Seinfeld with take a call from his parents in Florida. You know and. It's kind of one of those things, but, you know, but yeah, yeah, I think we were coming back from doing an interview my dad calls, and he's asking about every article we did and all the irons, we got in the fire at the battle on be he was excited for the radio interview that we were doing because it was on the Christian station that he listens to, you know, he's asking me. What time does this air? He it's like in the nineteen forties. Like he gathers everyone around the big floor radio in the den. In the den, we're gonna listen to Kyle on the radio kids. Actually, did you see that thing you do remember when the when the kid is like, I think they're on the big national bandstand show, or whatever it is. They're like on the big show for the first time they're on national on national television. And the dad is always been grouchy, but he's super excited. Yeah. On the TV, and he gathers everyone around that totally reminds me of, like. When I did acts cop, which I don't soon. Everybody on the listening knows about that purchase ex-cop. Yeah, nobody's a crazy thing that happened in my life that made a comic with my five year old brother and my, my dad experienced his son, who was twenty nine and his son was five create this thing together that went like crazy viral and we were doing conventions and interviews, and we're on TV and he was. I mean over the moon proud like he was every single time I post a comic. He's calling me, he'd always have axe cop t shirt on. He had like every ex-cop t shirt made which there's a bunch of made that nobody bought and he owned them all and told reminded me of that, like he's just such a proud dad. That's awesome. So when we move on some hate mail after all that sweetness we can't, you know, this is we, we are satire outlet. And so we can't let you go away, feeling good. You have to feel cynical and sarcastic and upset so right, some hate mail this week. We got this was about the article that Frank wrote nation celebrates existence of completely unnecessary parent, and he's. Your article regard this, by the way, this is in this isn't all caps multiple exclamation points all caps, your article regarding dads being the unnecessary parent is appalling. I will not read any Meyer of your crap. Are we going to bleep out crown? Can we say crap? I don't know. And by the way, I think Meyer was supposed to be more, but. Yeah, it seemed like this was typed in a rage because it's all caps regarding doesn't have an end regarding space. Gee unnecessary is spilled on Necker a Necker. But we're not gonna pick we're gonna pick on this guy for his. He's he's passionate about. I completely agree with them. Just didn't get the joke, and get that with sarcastic. It's funny, there's every angry comment. I saw maybe happy. It's a good people really are passionate about fathers do have a place and they're important. And like we completely agree with that. There's a certain type of angle we take in a satirical article where you just say the opposite of of what's true. And those are especially prone to people misunderstanding them because they don't get. Oh, you know, why would I share this article it setting the opposite of what's true? You know. So, so there's, there's a weird way actually, I knew I knew and Frank article in that there was going to be a lot. I thought about messing with the headlines, like whatever. It'll be all right. Well, the weird ironclad as it feels like there are people that really think this to, like, may and I personally think this probably not that many people. I think that there's there's, there's this movement of like people wanna make the family obsolete. And they think that yeah, there's this weird thing where women are above men or something. I don't know. I think it's a crazy of an idea as any any crazy Colt. You could be a part of, but these crazy people who think women are humans. They think they're like, right. Ethan, or the okay. What are you trying to word of mouth? So you're saying trouble, it's like Jordan Peterson interview. So you're saying thing saying is that. You hate women. All right. Well, that's the other show our second ever show. Thank you for listening to these second ever in the history of the world universe since the Donna creation, six thousand years ago. Babble on the podcast. We're actually going to go on for another fifteen minutes for thirty it's been fifteen thirty minutes. Yeah, yeah. We're, we're bonus.

That's right. You heard that third voicu is that we have a special guest. Today are movie guru brian dawa. The man who wrote wrote the book that i always enjoyed reading called hollywood worldviews. He likes to dig into like he's like a mind reader of hollywood scripts and you can dig out in brian brian series of screenplay writer. He's like <hes> theology nerd and he's also a novelist and here is sitting across from us. He's joined us in our new little office studio radio. We have going here. Thanks for having me guys and i have one request. You're talking a little slow. I listened to my podcast at one point five speed so you mind talking a little fast sure. We're both way too laid back and we will. I kinda stare each other other and kind of go between you. Wanna say something knicks jide i next. I need to look at our notes. Can everybody hold on a second. It's they're really good skill to have when you're running a podcast popular podcast to not really know how to be able to talk to fill up. I'll take this time now to promote my mind latest. I work yeah. Brian writes these epic novels. We'll get into that. He writes like lord of the rings with noah yeah okay so we're gonna talk movies yeah. <hes> i like. I said brian wrote. A book called hollywood worldviews. He used to write this blog which i think you still have a blog but used relic every movie that came mount yeah right this long epic blog posts just digging into what's the world view of this movie. What's it saying <hes> and i just found it fascinating so i would love i i when we started this podcast. That'd be fun to do the occasional movie episode yes because i know a lot of you guys. Just get your news your week's news from from the babylon beat podcast and you're going to be disappointed this week because we're not covering. We're not covering. There's recovering we're going to cover three kind of general movies and genres and then <hes> and then we're gonna talk about a topic of the week which is anti christian or anti conservative bias in hollywood and in films. We're going to see i mean does it. Exist does not exist it. Is it a conspiracy theory. What are we being snowflakes. Our gas we'll find out and then we're gonna get into some more specific movies and things in the subscriber portion excited about okay so <hes> you sound really excited about. I'm very excited about this is a hollywood audition. I would hire you as excited guy number one. I can do excited. I just we work at a place with other neighbor. People wanna scare people every week. There are movies vases. These are some of them. We are going to talk about i and robots and sci-fi. What are the big sci saifi movies right now because i don't watch him. I'm not a nerd gosh. I don't keep up either. I saw the battle angel perfect all right continue first of all. I i gotta say the hottest thing right now in my opinion. It's it's going to be is the new release on netflix of a series a russian in series actually called better than us and it is an odd sort of <hes> slightly in the near future not super futuristic but where robots have gotten on to the point where a i is starting to be developed in them and robots are used all throughout for servant servant oriented things and stuff but now there's this new special robot which is a woman and of course she's sexy and we have to bleep that out yeah stomach cancer anyway so so it it wrestles with the issues of a you you know <hes> k which i think one of the most popular notions in movies and series you not you. I use that word movies. The truth is is the best stories. Nowadays are the street streaming series which is really long movies yeah exactly but anyway. There's a catchall phrase so <hes> so it's it's an it's a story. Where a guy he's he's doctor. He struggled with his divorce marriage and he gets thrown in the midst of this thing and this robot imprinted on his little daughter. Who's just a cute wonderful cute little girl and it's all about this issue of kim robots <hes> actually become come emotive become more human like and it's not like like you can't tell the difference. It's not like that at all. It's just a it's the next step of becoming more sensitive and being able to mimic but the whole premise is and this is the premise of all a i in modern sci fi movies weather. It's westworld next mackinaw transcendence. <hes> even even alita battle angel to some degree is the premise. It's the it's this premise <hes> the neuro scientific evolutionary premise that <hes> <hes> we humanity the identity of humanity is not transcendent. It's not it's basically not in the image of god. It's not unique. We are are simply more complex organisms so therefore the premise of the evolutionary sciences well as an organism becomes more complex it actually becomes more self aware so couldn't a robot with a i that is always learning and growing therefore develop an identity or a conscious or solar whatever you wanna call it right so that i think is the major driver of all the stuff. Thing is the premise of westworld. I should've determinism exactly and this is why for me. Personally i don't i don't believe in that and so when i watch these movies and stuff where you know you've got people falling in love with the robot i don't buy it and it's not very interesting to me because i don't believe that they're humans and so the romance is not real and it's not satisfying right can you can you watch a movie though where you know obviously it's built on a philosophy you disagree agree with you and just kind of buy into their worldview for the last couple of hours and enjoy it and said that is an interesting thought but i disagree with absolute fact. That's what i'm doing the <hes> better than us. It's a sixteen part series. I'm more almost done with it. It's a fantastic story. I highly recommend it. It's great 'cause it wrestles with the issues and even if i don't agree with it that's okay. I enjoyed a leader battle angel. I enjoy westworld to some degree even though i fundamentally disagree with their whole premise and dan but there but while i'm speaking more like emotionally and <hes> just as a store watching a story if if you if you don't believe the premise of this thing can be human then you're not going to believe the romance story. You know like yeah did you. Did you emotionally connect with short circuit erkin. I saw that when i was a kid so no no it didn't make an watched it johnny remember it. Uh a man put need input stephanie. Do not disassemble no disassemble so there's nothing like that in. I don't know if our audience the younger old yeah now. We're going to we're going to get we're going to get one email from so i love that yes. That's going to be the only so we have talked about westworld more and yeah the new things things you know basic idea. Is that like the reason there's obsession with a._i. <hes> is that we liked the idea. Are there's a there's a curiosity in our culture that wants to say this could have happened without god and so ah comp the way i like to see is you dump a pile of like material down a staircase and it can fall down that staircase for eternity entity at some point it will become become beethoven yeah yeah exactly idea right exactly and and my fundamental premise is that humanity is transcendent and the transcendent is exactly what most movies and stories are about trying to grasp and try and good ones. I mean if you've got you know whatever the crappy garbage was just exploiting whether it's sex or violence or whatever sure but i'm saying in most hollywood mainstream movies they're they're. They're trying to find that transcendence. It's because that's what i think as human beings satisfies us in stories and that's why you've got the big themes whether itself sacra you know a lot of movies have self sacrifice vice or they have friendship and family. Family's probably the number one <hes>. If you wanna make money in hollywood <hes> having a movie and have your your family apart of it and i'm saying but that's a good thing i'm i agree with that right yeah but <hes> but th- those are things that point towards transcendence and i think that's what satisfies satisfies our souls or spirits as as humans who are who are watching stories. Who can you real quick because i know that when i listen to podcasts a lot and i was kind of new story language and philosophy auspey language determine the idea of transcendence. I had a tough time grasping what it meant. I'll go get it better now. But i think good question yeah so much you just unpack the meaning of that so in this comes down to assumptions as well as a christian as as i am if what and we are fired we cancelled our you know we do have a culture. That's obviously very varied but one of the strong elements this is materialism. Materialism is the belief that everything is reducible to matter so there is no such thing as consciousness or spirit or soul or anything like that and of course horse materialism does drive a lot of people's stories as well as science etc because they're trying to reduce that that down and the the christian belief is is that while we are a material universe we also have a transcendent <hes> or immaterial essence to reality and and that material is where we talk about things like our spirit or soul or in particular humanity being created in the image of god and of course nowadays as with our evolutionary <hes> you know premise in most of society whether material is or not <hes> <hes> there's the there's the the <hes> i'm losing my train of thought here <hes> the the evolution of the transcendent so okay there's the negation of god in there but they're still the desire to find meaning and purpose not rice's my christian worldview speaking seeking. I readily acknowledged that i'm saying you're not gonna be satisfied. Human being if you believe everything's meant reducible to matter and nothing there is no ultimate truth and ultimate spiritual reality. If you live that way you're going to be an ultimately unsatisfied human being because we have the design we are created in the image of god meaning. God has made us in a way that we relate we rule over and over nature over <hes> the earth and we're supposed to be god's representatives being creative in what we we do and love and give all that stuff fight evil. Those are all expressions of the identity of god that we carry your animals do not have that other things do not have that and be in that sense. We are transcendent. We are <hes> you know the the apex of creation and of course in today's world that what is white supremacy or whatever you know it's it's human supremacy. No how dare you say that you are superior to animals and superior to else that's why they were polluting the planet and killing of your body because we think we're superior and that causes evil blah blah blah which is its own form of superiority exactly yeah yeah exactly so these are the world views that are in conflict in our chain and and dot so that transcendence i think is the longing in all of our human hearts for meaning purpose something beyond what we just see experience in this world. It's not enough so would you say that our culture is transcending phobic la woah although interestingly interestingly enough i would say this that this is where i you know humanities complex you can't reduce everything down to evolution or anything anyway but not it not everybody does but <hes> leftism actually is a religion and and in a sense i i would argue that the the rise as of socialism and leftism as a as an influential <hes> thought force in our society is evidence of the fact that when you kill when you kill god's msci wise in society you get rid of him you you don't get rid of that longing and so you want to replace it. You have a god substitute. This is why why leftists it is a religion. You know it's like you've got the holy. Sacraments scientists are the priests and if you don't believe in global warming than you. You are an evil sinner. You know it's the same language it's the same scenario as any other religion and my argument is that's because they know that even if they reject god and reject some higher meaning purpose they have to have some new created higher meaning and that is still frowned heavily world yeah no higher purpose or renault meaning yeah. I don't even though like why i mean why why isn't it if we are just evolved. You know robots meet robots. The y. is a matter now what we do with our lives and what basically happens is if you really live consistent with that if society in this consistently that way then van alternately you <hes> there's ultimately there will be a god and that god of the culture will become the state so that's what what leftism is. It's the replacement of a judeo-christian transcended. God who gives us commands that we should follow regardless with the state is god and they that's why they want to control it and use it to control. Everyone's lives <hes> so they wanna be the god themselves and and by the way that's in a lotta movies movies here yeah. There's sorry that's the philosophical circle thing but but that philosophy is embedded in a lot of movies and i think there's a lot of good movies that that will deal with things like <hes> <hes> this status and in show it for what it is. You know so <hes> a lot of times these a._i. Things these stories or science scifi movies are often dystopia opie and movies right whether it's divergent or you know all these these <hes>. What are your gain game. They're all dystopia is where the government is evil because it controls and suppresses the individual. That's a good thing it amazes me. When i mean it shows that's a good thing that they show it as evil. I read i read the hunger games to my boys and and we watch the movies. Did you do all the voices and i did all the voices volunteer. A lot of female voice volunteers tribute. No you know the whole deal but down a little bit more like this. It's great but the yeah now remember what i was gonna say the well yeah. It amazed me that was so anti-state you know and a lot of dystopia in fiction is like like that but and then you'll get the left sight those you know like oh. We're the we're the tributes fighting against capital and trump is the you know and it's like you know you've missed the entire point like at the at the end of the at the end of the last movie spoiler alert you know she she kills the incoming <hes> the new president. That's gonna take over supposedly good because she says boiler well. It wasn't a very good spoiler. We should little alert on. You're gonna listen to this program. It's spoiled. We gotta talk about it. We gotta talk about these things. Talk earning alerts all the whole the whole thing. It's looking like it's going to be pro state because they say oh this new states coming in and beat these these rulers hours are good and then she kills the the president who was going to take over and she says no. You know i just want to go live my life and this this new government they all government right and so it's this like anti-statist message at the end yeah but but again you see the left identifying with these characters in this you know the same thing with like harry potter where the the you know you've you've got the ministry that's all invaded and they're all they're all bad you know and they're finding against the resistance is always like we're harry. Potter and trump is martin and it's interesting how the huskies like the opposite of what is another example of another real recently where the heck i can't remember what the what what the movie was and that the creator himself was saying <hes> that that he saw trump in it and it was like it was really more of a conservative move and he didn't even realize it shouldn't have to select cultural appropriation. I on another good example of the dystopia and stuff is <hes> is a handmaid's tale right so you know here's this you know <hes> distortion in future and this is a this is another element of what they tried to do is. I think that we all at least americans all have that desire for freedom. That's one of our highest value so yeah so the p- the suppression of individual is a bad thing that's and that's good message right and and so that's why you lend itself to <hes> status tyranny tyranny oppresses the individual but then what happens is they try to connect that state ism with christianity or with the view they hate and thus you have him as tell where it's an absurdity certainty of something that doesn't even remotely exist on any level or in any thought piece in any christian world world that you can imagine that is christians want to have a theocracy and take over the world and and use women as their concubines and kill gays and and it's completely actually now now you were saying that was the best. I thought that was no. It's christian and that's the thing about it so absurd this like how could this be a popular popular show because it doesn't make sense on any level in the fantasy of what they've now now now now mike pence's just cackling and the white house or whenever there's no christian argues that on any level anywhere meanwhile yeah muslims all over the world are actually killing gays actually having theocracy not all muslims sir not all bash all over the world and you know and it's like so it actually is happening in muslim cultures with sharia law right and yet they're the left is not worried about real evil. They're worried about their imagine. Diva that doesn't exist. That's crazy crazy. Yeah and i think you could see some of that. On the meeting we were gone gone way off topic here but a way off from silence but you can see it in christianity to make sure you get very religious sects or fundamental sex that sex <unk>. It's the talk about sex and violence. We're christian sex. There's lots of christian sexto they. They're they're boogeyman has been his whatever it is. I think it's is common. You create a bogeyman. Go way bigger hero fighting the your creative boogeyman than a real one raya better chance of every viewer every viewpoint on earth has they're extreme celtic rajen so absolutely i we wanna do a whole sci-fi episode someday <hes> that was a little dip at the toe into sci fi. We wanna talk about zombies next zombies. No i love sycophant but i'm curious to see brian to say about him. <hes> i love i used to hate zombie moves vase kid okay i'll because he's just guaranteeing gruesome gruesome and just like who cares about this people eating people so stupid but but i think in more recent years zombies have become <hes> you know a very powerful and they always have been i just didn't recognize as a young kid but they are very powerful social commentary and bazamba republicans yes of course they'll have mega hat song mary power <hes> so you know i think one of the things that made it <hes> one of the movies that made it really breakthrough was the <hes> the day at twelve twenty twenty twenty two days later. Oh you're the movie guy man bad memory strike one. I have to have a list of notes even of movies too remember them twenty eight. There was twenty days in syria can we we twenty a month. We're great at it was too. I think there was a month wasn't there of course walking dead. I'm a big fan walking dead not more more. I stopped after after neagh was defeated. I never got to get even. I stopped watching on the episode where he'd smashed the dudes face jason with the bat. Oh yeah this is just. This is just depressing so well. Here's so here's the deal horror again. You know i got a religious audience. I'm orne right so i'm sure all we talk about so far like really popular. <hes> all christians watch wagging just secretly yeah yeah and i do. I do think i think a lot of them. Have they. A lot of them watch a lot of things that they would not admit to write ame of thrones right. Oh okay so anyway not anymore. We've we've disowned it finale. Yeah that's true. How did he lesson <hes> so <hes> but horse and horror is something that i've actually talked around the country john up at churches and such because it's something that i actually really believe in and the reason why i believe in it as a genre even though a lot of christians and it's not for everyone everyone okay but a lot of christians have a problem with it because all that's just what violence exploiting fear and our god is not fear and all this stuff and the truth is what they don't realize is is that i have written a chapter this in my book hollywood worldviews that you can purchase dot com <hes> but since i've i've written a whole like article it's gone you'd probably find it free on the internet actually about sex and violence and horror movies in particular exit on article on horror movies and why they are a powerful moral medium in today's as post modern society society rejects <hes> moral truth and and in his relativistic what that means is and of course rejects checks guide. You have no foundation for morality. Oh yes there's a shallow surface sense of morality but ultimately there's no stunt. There's no foundation morality therefore as society becomes more consistent consistent with that value. It's going to become less moral because gonna start to realize there is no morality as relatives so what i wanted to be and so <hes> horror horror movies horror genre is great because it it is a moral gut punch. We wash movie. Yes sometimes this gruesome etc but you watching this and it really clarifies the reality of evil. You're watching some of your. You're not saying oh one. Man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. You're watching you know. I know that guy is frigging evil and he deserves to die. It's an emotional <hes> moral gut punch that affirms immoral value system in the world. It's it's also the medium or you can deal with religious values. Let us christian values. Y'all got demonic. Possession of the conjuring right are the exorcism of emily rose rose and you know all those movies were you can deal with real demons and deal with jesus christ in a positive way that you can't at any other genre in hollywood so that's another that's true. It's interesting that that in those kinds of movies like emily rose and such it's like the christian answer is a christian <unk> correct. The director bankers dirksen yeah those things it's like the christians are actually the good guys and you kind of you kind of you kind of accept the christian solution to the the problem. I have a problem with just because the solution is usually like a priest shows up and says something in latin. That's not really how spiritual warfare works but but if you look at it in terms is like symbolism it's probably more or just having a positive <hes> picture of christianity and movie out i mean that's amazing why the devil israel and the humanities powerful things asia and in fact the movie the the movie devil by an night shamlan which is of great movie elevator warns the elevator one and it's the it's a small movie but the principle principal is said in this woman's <hes> voice. She says you know i i basically my grandma taught me that. If there's a double than there has to be a god and i mean that's a real because if if you believe that there's a real true incarnate evil you have to believe there has to be good or there's no there's no evil right ziebel's absence yeah so so horror movies do that <hes> zombie zombie movies in particular is why i love them is in general most of them really from the walking dead zombie land shaun of the dead which was hilarious right down that change the john mara to that helped bring more humor into horror movies in in a positive way and one of my personal favorites pride and prejudice zombies. I loved inositol. I saw that i saw i saw an easy really good. Okay it is in. I mean obviously what it is. Yeah except we're going ah yeah but <hes> angle but what i want to get to is so the zombies what makes these great is. You'll you'll notice and notice and this is trivial out of some vampire movies as to like got a thirty days of night. Which were my personal favorites. Is that <hes> it's a it's a they. They wrestle with the issue of of sack us what makes us human rights because these are dead bodies were animating. You can kill them and you know that you're justified in killing them but why they're not really human why what is it that makes them different cetera <hes> that points towards the spirit in man right right but also he watched them like twenty twenty eight weeks. Slater is a great example. They often contra and went walking dead is basically people who are selfish and seek to <hes> survive protect themselves themselves and the end up hurting others or kill getting killed but those who tend to sacrifice to to rescue others are the good people and those are the ones that promote life and that's the theme in walking dead for the first five seasons and that is basically what i argue is. That's the christian ethic of self sacrifice versus the evolutionary mary ethic of self survival and so all zombie movies tend to depict that twenty weeks later is fantastic. That's the whole essence of the story is this father who literally protected himself to and let his wife get die but turns out she didn't write but that that is on his soul and it destroys him because because he protect tried to protect himself and like i said walking dead it's the same sort of thing the heroic people the people that we cheer they're good people are the people who are are sacrificing themselves or risking their lives to save others not protecting yourself to save yourself. That's evolutionary ethic versus christian ethic. That's that's what i argue in general even if it doesn't promote christianity yeah yeah zombie thing is like i think people are very narcissistic and self centered and so so they relate to the zombie genre because they feel that way out among other people. They feel like everyone else is kind of just this. Everyone's the same yeah i'm different in. They're all just this kind of like idiots and i'm smart like it. Fits are very selfish view of ourselves and our lives very dark bue i i thank you but this is good. I'm glad that you said that because it brings up a good point that none of this is absolute and there's good and bad things to each of these rashawn ross in which you bring out. I would totally agree that too much of one thing can actually feed that negative side and i think you make a very good point about that that that zombie movies particularly people of obsessed with you know you see this kind of thing you know they. This love all zombie movies and i've watched them. They're just so bad that i turn them off. So when i talk about zombie movies i'm thinking more than mainstream extreme stuff rather than the exploitation stuff yeah nevertheless yeah it can appeal to narcissism and i think that that's a that might be a good lead in i talk talk about the next movie because that's i think the one of the latest sort of big movies out is once upon a time in hollywood and it has i think my arguments can be the has. It's a really interesting strong. Good side to it and also a negative side to it interest if we can. I mean forgive you. I'm taking control of the babylon. Be that's my secret desire. I think people just like zombie movies because they get the brains explode but you're operating on a whole other level. You're playing forty chess here. Meet nathan are <hes> glenn tutti tiddlywinks okay so here's a so but here's the point about art slash storytelling slash movies rides all it's <unk> all part of the same thing the beauty and power of art and i write about this in my book the imagination of god and god against the gods uh-huh but <hes> the power of storytelling and in hollywood reviews the power of of of art is is precisely that it combines both the entertaining aspect of course people don't say i don't think people want to go see zombie movies because i want to see the ethic of self sacrifice. I know i agree right and then there's something that's kind of cool about like hey you know you can kill people in your not guilty and but also just being chased. I love chase movies. I love movies. Were the good good guy is being hunted by bad guys to take them all down. <hes> so there is definitely on the surface we are drawn to the entertaining elements of absolutely and that's that's a whole 'nother level. I wasn't making a point there but you you brought it out however but me as the philosophical artists i also believe that those things draw us but then i think the things that make them powerful and meaningful and you know big hits whether it's shaun of the dead or walking dead <hes> it is that they're not just exploitation vehicles of gore and blood and violence they are actually wrestling with meaningful human relationships and what how you now the apocalypse apocalypse stories that their purpose is to say to for us to struggle or wrestle and figure out what makes civilization la's -ation right. What makes civilization is you know because when it's lost how you gain it back and what do we end up in as tribal societies book. Eli is a fantastic stick example of that with denzel washington you know <hes> and that that movie is literally about what is the foundation of civilization because he's he's he's he's protecting the bible and getting it to the coast so that they can keep books that have been lost that can rebuild civilization. That's literally what it's about uh-huh and and that's what i argue most apocalyptic stories are about even if people don't think of that consciously you gotta figure out what is lost that went all wrong. Yeah yeah and i'm <music>. I'm big on you. Don't have to know this consciously for it to be effective. I speak as an artist. I i know what we do artists to you know that we craft that stuff in there whether or not they're going to be aware of it. We believe it affects them because the very nature of storytelling in movies and series is itself a a a a means of persuading people in the way that we see the world yeah and this is a very deep topic too but i think that <hes> uh when you create a story you know we like to think as especially if you're secular think that you're just creating thing out of thin air but i think think that we tend to believe that you're finding something that you're finding a truth and that's why you can try to write a story that doesn't ring true with your soul the human soul and won't really work and so i think a lot of people that want to write a story that <hes> is disconnected from the idea that we are that were transcendent and there's meaning <hes> <hes> doesn't ever work because to write a story. You're you're tapping into something deeper than just that you know playing around with words on a on keyboard and <hes> you know is not too off topic. It's not the same sean but i'm a good example of of that. In play is the <hes>. I'm i'm on trinity on net flicks and there's a there's a new there's a new <hes> movie a netflix original that is a love story like a romance a romantic comedy. Maybe i shouldn't be talking about this if i can't find it a zombie zombie love story. It's not but it's it's wasn't there. One came zombie love story moving. Yeah yeah yeah which i just not that i already already. I already saw them with the fish man and like i don't want see people for europe skull in my habit i haven't unbelievable and i don't know what's called really yeah. I wi fi you liked liked it. My wife liked it. They make out probably wouldn't i blew it. I started. I brought up a topic that i can't find the example of fricking movie that that but it was this idea what you're saying about how if it doesn't it doesn't ring true and if you connect with our humanity and our <hes> so as a a story it some some love story at some asian love story on net flicks and <hes> and it's basically it's a feminist parable parable you know and and as i watched i i enjoy feminist movies if they're if they're well dying but so here's when you tell a story the hero ro the protagonist this part of storytelling the protagonist is the one we cheer when we root for right but that protagonist has had something wrong about the way they see the world. That's it's causing some of their problems as well as the external villain you know that they have to battle as they fight the villain. They're losing and they fail because they don't realize there's something living inside of them. They have to change and become a better person when they do that. Then they have the victory over themselves that they can then face the villain and win the villain that sorta the standard and that's in romantic comedies. That's in everything and so. I was watching this trying to find this this story. I can't remember what it's called. It's real boring title to it's it's very forgettable but i remember watching it and thinking instance feminists story so story this woman and she wants everything and have love and and and and be successful career and and it's making that argument that we can have everything all that kind of stuff but it's so interesting is that by the end of the story the the man that she was in love with he's the one who has to change and learn something's wrong with him so that he can fit into her life better she can move on and and what's so hilarious about that is not because it should be the other way round because she's a woman know what whoever your hero is is the one who has to learn so if if the hero was a man i would say he has has to learn something drawn with him so he's so he's made worthy of the woman but in this case because it's feminism is the ideology they they have to stick to that. It's got to be the man changes and my point was. I'm watching story is completely unsatisfied. 'cause i'm supposed to be rooting for this woman but she has. She's the one of us to change and it's it was very very unsatisfying as a story and that's so that's why i'm saying like <hes> whatever you're going to tell you the story itself. Actually it actually <hes> <hes> it embodies the persuasion in a way right 'cause like you're rooting for the hero and unquote whatever flaw the hero has is what we also learn about ourselves so when the hero learns by the end of the story what they have to better in themselves you know <hes> luke must realize that he is the save the one the chosen one whatever but you know by the end of the story as the hero learns and then overcomes comes his ultimate problem that we too will be with him in that journey. Does that make sense yeah yeah. Are we getting my stink too. Philosophical stock more about movies. I mean we're getting philosophical movies. That's the whole idea right yeah. They're all floppy just wanted. Are we just want our homeschool audience to know that luke is not a reference to the book in the bible character franchise co star wars that we got we got. We actually got angry. Hey man. We kept doing that home school. Please you stop doing the homeschool <unk>. Yes he loved home school. We love you home school or all right yeah. That's the thing this is. Our first sued talking movies. There's so much you can talk about getting too serious for the babylon. No joke in iran abi candidate usually kyle is able to use pretty throwing jokes in but you talk really really fast so in kyle always waits for three seconds of silence who are heels joke so that's the problem i'm. I'm knock knock noting that's all right. I'm just <hes> you know like i said i listen to podcasts at one point five so i think i've started talking that way. We'll we'll try the next one. We'll see al gore senator all right if we figured that it'd be good to talk about one new movie that's actually in theaters right now and we're gonna win. The kyle hadn't seen so causing they be quieter and probably i'll go ahead and give my review right now too. Much blood is their blood <hes> talking about once upon a time in hollywood but yes once upon a time sally would so spoiler. My review made a spoiler leisure spoiler. I'm going to explain yeah. Ask too bad but listen you. Don't wanna go see it anyway too much blow when i saw. I don't really know why i saw that reset. It was so good yeah yeah exactly now i do. I here's what i'm going to argue is. I actually think it i i. I have a love hate relationship with tarantino. I you know a lot of moves. I just think are just garbage and stupid. I think pulp fiction was a masterpiece okay so i turned that but then a lot of them in between terrible anyway i watched him hollywood which the premises is that lena leonardo di caprio plays in a you know i think it's like <hes> yeah in the sixties around the time of the manson yeah. It's like a rain late. Six fifty nine sixty nine probably yeah okay late sixties so <hes> and he's an aging star what are failing and he's so he struggled struggle with his whole identity. Meanwhile brad pitt plays the stuntman his stunt double who is just just a cool guy and he just he's not he's not burdened by all that garbage and he's actually a good guy and he just he's helping leonardo to find his way in life so that's kind of the premise of it while they happen live next door to <hes> sharon tate eight and roman polanski ceelo lane where where the murders happened so you know he's a fictional character. Caprio is is is a fictional character. That's that's a fictional story you know and <hes> the so the thing is this <hes> tarantino's done this for a couple of movies now <hes> he did this in the glorious passers to it's the genre that i that is called alternative history in other words. If if things happen differently here's what it might have been now. That's an interesting genre well. It's worthy of creativity etc. <hes> so what he does is he. He says he says how might the manson manson murderers have occur not occurred if if these kind of character as it interacted in that scenario you know and like i said inglorious bastards was so you got to see hitler actually get killed by guys you know what was he flamed or whatever shot shot you know and and so here so here's the thing that's classic movie yeah yeah. I've never seen so first of all. I have to say number one is that it is long and man a little boring quite boring at times ops way too. Many shots of close ups of people feet walking. I don't know why a lot of shots of people's feet walking and secondly he does a major makes a major mistake. A first year filmmakers. I make an i did it in my first film as he has long but uninteresting driving sequences so that he can play his favorite music over for the soundtrack right. He does not see anything wrong with that. I do that in my real life like i'll drive around the block. A couple of i know my favorite dc talk. All right can finish flooding in movies. Three or four times is pretty boring. I like the cool movie trick where you hear the music and then they turn off the car and the music turns earns often you go oh they were listening to see tiddlywinks over here or when they just play he has gone and you just hear it in the little slight yeah but then it becomes the soundtrack babak when you when you become him and so he's yeah baby driver yeah. I'm gonna i'm just gonna shout the names of movies out to sound like. I know what i'm talking all right. Okay so so here's the premise. It's like okay so you've got this. You know these two characters who interact and basically they end up stopping the manson murders because because the first people that they go to kill the tex watson and his couple of girls ends up being <hes> brad pitt and to capri all right and you so so so it it doesn't end up occurring and what the value of this is good side is it's catharsis in other words. You're watching this movie and if you know anything about the just the horrible metality of the manson murders on what depths of evil people can go. That's the whole point of that but he shows them not being killed and and the good guys i just completely malls roy him but it's self defense is there there is simple. It isn't not as much as most tarantino movie okay. It's as if brad pitt's character knows what she would have done the way that he kills. Was that girl yeah. He's basically dismissed smashing her face into everything in the house. Just it's only homes becomes cartoon. Yeah yeah it is it is. It's very silly because he's everything just keeps changing shots bash nearby so the catharsis is you're. You're like you have the sense of justice yeah. They really got their their just desserts. You know 'cause we know those are evil people who did really great evil and we get to see what didn't happen. Which is they get their just deserts. That's that's called catharsis right and there's a certain value to that. I don't deny <hes> and and also i think it's ultimately conservative value because you've got these guys who stand up use guns fight back and this is very much. A thing in society that i i think is ultimately conservative. Values is to to defend yourself and to the death right so that's that's the good side and and i have conservative friends who said you you know <hes> and fell him from the n._f._l. Podcast they they argued that is very conservative and i'm like okay. I can see that but here's the downside in my opinion is the downside of that fits into taste narrative in that is i think when it comes to look whenever you're telling movie your fictionalized even if you're telling me is true story no problem with that i get that you fictionalized but with the most important things history like these people were really brutally murdering what happened if you checkmate that the opposite what you're doing is you're feeding into this leftist narrative of of facts don't matter what matters is our feelings rulings and this is why they don't even need to say that really fast like ben shapiro announced fax don't care about your feelings are you and so so so she won't saying in is like don't care what really happens because what satisfying to me is to see the manson murderers get there do yeah and but but you see the danger of that is this is what's happening all all over now. The russian hoax has been proven as a hoax but the media and the left is still go with the narrative because the narrative feels better spills better to go with that and that's happening on every the bright cavenaugh complete fraud against him complete fraud <hes> libel slander been proven to be false but but they're still sticking to the narrative. They're still sick ferguson. You know it's like the narrative is that you know. A cop killed an unarmed man. No actually it was justifiable the homicide of the guy who's trying to kill him and it's like but they don't care 'cause they stick with siham saints. Yeah i think that's destroying our culture <hes> <hes> from on the inside out <hes> because of the denial of the most important facts and that's the danger i see in the movie does that make sense. No clearly that's that is one of the most crazy things about some of these stories just like getting into the facts makes you seem like like. Are you being a bigot. 'cause you're getting facts yeah. It's weird really really kansas talk about the actual facts what happened like it. Take the stance that maybe the narrative true immediately your <hes> yeah yeah. If we really wanted to be a conservative movie we could build a wall around. Yes this manson bumping into edges. He keeps yeah like a like a ten foot by ten foot area in writing piggy everywhere just actually actually they lived in a pretty rich area. They already had they literally did in the movie they had on spahn ranch yet in all hollywood hypocrites like that. They're against the wall but they have walls around their mansions. Your walls defense is a brewery with a moat. A hypocrisy is on sharks all right so far main top going to get into christian anti christian bias in hollywood so hold your horses a battle on the topic of the week well. There's kind of this narrative among christians and conservatives that hollywood is very anti them and hollywood is in this liberal bubble and you know. I don't know that all the narratives of hollywood films are designed to kind of oppressed oppressed conservatives and i think comes off a little annoying at times right like you know conservatives this movie this movie heyman snowflake conservatives aches and so i was kinda wondering you know you're someone who's there. We're we're very close but i think we live just outside the bubble right in the belly of a little bit more than i have yeah now. There's a liberal bubble. I think it's a big plastic plexiglas dome most people that work in hollywood feel like they're outside of it. 'cause it's such an in thing. It's just like doc. It's just like it's a way to put it. It's like when you're in junior high and there's the kids who are the in crowd and there's only a few that really are in and you wonder though is the ones being train wrecks later in life. Yeah say hit their peak when they're twelve or thirteen yeah you know so because you are. You're always breaking in even if you just had a movie yeah. You're if you're trying to break in with the next movie because you never know you've written a move. I remember when i first met you yeah. You've written a movie sutherland starring in to end all wars which is available on amazon and it is really great classics of for that christians love yeah. It's a great christian movie. Sure <hes> we yeah so. It's funny. Just that whole idea you had that happened and you still feel your ranking. In fact within the year i was still felt literally. I just had that first movie made and i was under this illusion that like now i've broken in and now i'm going to get all this work and i literally had to go back to pounding on doors and it was just very disheartening. That was a moment that was a part time in my life where i did deal with depression because it was just such a shock to the system yeah until i just accept it. No that's how it is and i heard other more famous people more successful the people in me saying the same thing after every movie. I'm not sure i'm even gonna make another movie yeah so i just accepted it and moved on anyway care. Here's what together the other time cares about just how it feels like an in crowd. Oh yeah yeah the in crowd thing almost already out matter probably so my question is it is this is it real and how bad isn't what's the what to what extent accusations be worried about it and how do we i mean if there's christian artists and filmmakers hollywood. How do you know well. There are look. I mean we know there's one look at it. As a war like i should boycott yeah yeah yeah. That's where you're that kind of stuff. It's a it's a topic. Do you subvert the system and yeah yeah. I inject your values into secular films. Do you make christian films. Do you know we'll look i. I've written a lot on my blog post at godiva dot com available on amazon yes but no seriously i'm proud of my movie put posts because i do go into indepth in the movies and stuff and not as much as i used to but but there are some some recent ones on there. We'll talk about the boys number one but how first of all tried the hollywood is not monolithic. It's not all one thing and right there. There are a lot of key when i first came out here twenty five years ago or something there was like one one or two christian ministries that that actually reached out to content creators like writers directors producers in an even actors and you know i knew of about ooh there. You must have been several hundred christians in the industry sutton a working to try to just you know to be an influence into whatever tell our stories right nothing subversive. It's just we love movies. More telstar telstra now twenty five years layers thousands of christians that i've seen and i've known and dozens of christian ministries reaching content creators et cetera etc and so in many in one sense. There's <hes> <hes> a lot more christians and we are infiltrating to some degree but there's also a large degree in which we have been compromised and become a lot of them have become like hollywood leftists and so <hes> their faith has been nullified in some ways and there is a a lot of there are a lot of people i have. You know i can tell you i know people and myself. I've lost work because they thought i was a christian has nothing to do with who i am or anything just finding out as a kushner finding out your conservative and when i first came their mind prussian was it was worse to be a republican than a christian <hes> <hes> they still hated both but it seemed to and that was like even fifteen years ago i can people can identify as like liberal christians or leftist christians and i probably get some of the christians yeah stain in coffee. So how do you know that you lost work because workers. Did they say oh. You're a christian. This isn't a time when they they had set it. They just told us really like really what kind of people also necessarily go around suing people right now and you know this is some years back so i'm more in the independent side of hollywood on it's not like i'm in with big studios and stuff like that so and partly because i work with people who have the same vision and stuff right so but nevertheless yet so i i like to tell people there is definitely anti-christian anti-christian anti-christian bias in a lot of movies and i write about them on my blog but i also right that there's a lot of positive i have to admit i'm. I'm surprised sometimes honestly at at how conservative some movies can be like the marvel. Universe is actually quite conservative until near the end now. Obviously they're turning woke but there's there's a lot of it lost me. When captain marvel cut her hair into the yeah she cut her hair into kind of like the feminist donald trump style style donald trump hairdos good on feminist so i'm a surprise and i like to i actually like to try to point out whenever i see a movie that comes out that actually has some surprisingly <hes> conservative values it that comes out of hollywood and i admit i say i'm surprised i'm tracy find hi some examples of of that but i'm or even very pro christianity. You know i i have lists were that i keep where i show. How like let me let me give example sample where true stories where in the christianity of the characters is crucial to their story slash lives. It's not just you know or they believe in something. I think so you know we all realize that you can't say everything in the story and you need to focus but we're all about identity right well. If a gay persons versus identity is their sexuality is everything they are will then sodas for christian as well but they cut it out and they make them into secular stories where they completely wheatley and that is the worst insult of all token was the latest one biography cut out the cut out the catholicism sure they they might have one moment where they seemed are or something like that but i mean they don't show how important it is to the story as well as integral even integral to his works. Yes exactly exactly wrinkle in time took out the crochet made into new age hidden figures yeah but you know they added oprah. That's true so added a new goddess that makes up for god hidden figures remember the one about the black women during the space program which was a fantastic movie nothing about their fate. They were all staunch strong christian winning that was part of their story right. The finest hour is the one about the sea rescue with chris pine. It's a great movie by the way finest hours the vow how unbroken the winner broken the one about the guy. I'm all my gosh. The very essence of what makes a great story was his yeah har walk the line line johnny cash right they all that maybe they'll choose a part of their life when faith wasn't wasn't there so it's so they're being quote authentic but in truth is issue they i should do a movie about jesus where they cut out the jewish faith making religious museum already. I'm i'm trying to think but you see my point. Is i trump stuff all the time but then also there are there are times where oh pro-life life movies you know and i'm not gonna do the independent ones like room which was the one that made me arson famous like fant engraving and that's that's. It's a movie that is dealing with the the one argument that pro-abortion pro-death people really you know i well what if she was raped and the child was naught was at the cia product of rape and this one shows that no even those children are worthy of living and that's a hollywood movie. I'm like wow that's amazing. You know so that that kind of stuff happens happens. I tried him either. Try to make it my <hes> my purpose to point those out because i do want to promote the good another good example is the the well <hes> bohemian rhapsody. Okay what ya well freddie mercury yeah actually i would say that that's think sample of a movie where it unwittingly shows that that here was a man who was unfaithful to a woman and that he loved and that is the source of all of his misery and unhappiness and there was a there's a sense in which it unwittingly showed the value of monogamy and insect heterosexual monogamy as well right oh captain panther. That was a classic thing where it's like captain panther. You did sick. I was looking at captain. The american civil war and i was physically physically. Ill is starting to get physically ill from captain panther so black panther right so here you how like black panther author himself is like donald trump man. I mean he's like he's like we're going to keep the wall around. I was pretty. I was pretty incredible. We're keeping them out. I'm like oh my gosh. That's like he's the hero and that's frigging donald and then you know people were actually mad about it because halfway through the movie they posed that question like should we should we arms and funds to revolutionary groups like communist anti type groups around the world to help black people rise up and fight against the government's and the answer in the end of the movie is no. We're we're going to share knowledge and then that's how the how they solved the problem which is interesting so yes so i i try to point those out because i i really went. When you start talking about a marvel movie and then i can then i have to force our. I'm talking less than i can't keep up with that as much. I enjoy some of the marvel but i can. I can talk you under the rug uh-huh daredevil though but <hes> so <hes> you know any of course you've got hacksaw ridge which is mel gibson corsini mel gibson movies is going to be awesome and with great values conservative values personal life. Maybe that's the kind of stuff that <hes> that interests me is when it's it's i mean i would call that a christian movie yeah yeah but it's not it's not it's not what we think of his christian movie like god's not dead or something you know exactly. Everybody's everybody's a to you know caricature of the atheists christians and stuff exactly and by the way i i'm. I'm proud to say that my movie tuna wars. I think is in that category with axelrod because it's definitely not a christian movie but it's a movie that has christianity because it was part of the story right yeah and they're very integral to and that was my goal <hes> to do that but hacksaw ridge is fantastic because here you've got this choose story world war two this is this kid who's a seventh day adventist adventist and a pacifist he ends up going to war and he ghost and he ends up saving an unbelievable amount of guys on the field and he won't carry a gun right but with so ironic is at the same time it also shows that his pacifism really is contradictory unlivable because he's being protected by guys with guns but i think gibson meant not to make that point. You know method to show that yet. They're bolt that there's a beautiful balance of it. They can work together you know and but he doesn't in the name of christ but then the other guys make good points <hes> that make him question his own you know values as well to realize that no if we don't stand up and fight evil evil will think with us things like that yeah so those are some examples at least set the page right okay so so not to say that like hollywood doesn't see christian character and they're scripted. Go get rid of them. Depends probably depends on the director and everything there is again. It's so complicated yes. There is a concerted effort. There is a significant amount of them who do like they. I've heard cases and inside stories. Were that's actually happens. Fact doug pineapple our our friend you know saint. He sells his <hes> creek creature tack. You know it's all about like creation science excretion scientists whatever versus evolution the and one of the first things they say well. Can we cut out the religion stuff. You know it's an and sometimes it's because they just hate christianity. Sometimes it's because they literally we are so in a bubble that they think will if we have that that will be offensive to people and we won't make money they literally think it will be whereas it's the exact opposite more people see it because there are more people who are positive towards at then are not right yeah so it's their own ignorance that causes them to make those choices but it sometimes it's very deliberate hate campaign such as the boys okay. Was that transition yeah bom. I'm sorry if i'm taking control i don't mean to be i'm just you gotta lot in your mind. We're we're here to yeah. Bounce off so is this. He said watch judge me again. I really want so you were cancelled. So here's the thing i do enjoy superheroes. I that's a whole nother topic of philosophical discussion. No i think that superheroes <hes> i'm not intrinsically against him but i do think they're very dangerous <hes> the because they become god's substitutes as well and it's very obvious that they're like the greek gods and stuff but that doesn't make intrinsically wrong because they can superman was originally a myth that pointed towards a christ figure. That's a superman berman. The original superman was a classic christ story so i have i. I love that and i think that's good. There's a lot of grand sacrifice in a lot of these stories self off. Sacrifices is a dominant ethic in hero story so that's that's good. The danger is that when you have a godless society they become the gods that just replace the replace that in in people's lives but i still enjoy them and so the boys comes on amazon and i'm interested in this because i also think the premise of the boys is what if the world's we have superheroes in the world but they were really you know a lot of time there a little bit too that goody thirty two shoes but you know like impartially people who altruistic they're not real human beings who who have set where selfish well what if normal people had these powers and there's various hist versions of selfish a addicts or whatever the huge celebrities not limited up and exactly and <unk> in truth and so so so in other words. It's it's these these superheroes who become celebrities but they're narcissists. They're selfish and they start to exploit it and they hurt people. It's actually an interesting in premise. I loved it isn't isn't that the premise of a lot of superhero things though but throughout the character arc they actually grown they overcome that impulse pulse yeah sure. Did you see zam. Yeah remember inches a._m. You he wants to go make money off his power and he's just very selfish and part of the story. Arc is absolutely yeah yeah but this the boys though is too extreme and like superman's do the learning lesson. I mean is that that's what i'm saying is there are all your your. The premise is that they will ultimately will so you think they're gonna. Superheroes are kinda. I only offers upset. It seems like they're kinda. Almost the billons essentially that's as you're watching it. That's what kind of get the impression is. It's like let's make the superheroes they're still heroes in society but less as it make them emotionally yeah so so it's kind of an it's irony and again. I have no comment. I have no problem with that because what what you end up seeing. Is you know you got superheroes who are worried about their twitter accounts and their social media value and stuff and basically what it it is. It's a metaphor for hollywood celebrities because now the differences hollywood celebrities only think they're saving the world but <hes> but nevertheless no. I'm telling you watch this and you're like going. This is harvey weinstein's <hes> hollywood because for example one of the first thing that happens so focuses on one of the protagonists protagonists of female called starlight. She has a starlight power anyway. She's gets inducted into the inner circle of these big guys right and and one of the first the very first thing she meets one of this fish guys whatever in the very first thing he does is he makes her he makes her engage in sexual acts with him or he's going to not outlet. He's going to tell them that. She's not worthy to be on the team that kind of thing right and it's just like oh my gosh that's like that's a perfect metaphor for celebrity culture in general and she she becomes disillusioned because she thought it was all about this glory of being heroes and saving the world and stuff and she realizes this. I think that's great. It's all good. It's all it's it's cynical abet button it and also shows like what superheroes are so vainglorious that they become irresponsible and sloppy unhurt people and think about we see these movies where cities are destroyed by the good guys people being killed because this is all yeah yeah. This is all good in and of itself but then by the fifth episode there's these hints your kidneys hints like one of the superheroes in the background said is being interviewed and he says well yes everyone. Everyone should be able to have guns. Everyone should have been able to have gun so they can protect themselves. Instead you know basically making a conservative argument which i my first rich like that doesn't fit at this paradigm because these are superheroes are saying let us take care of it. Let us save you. It would be more consistent if they were for gun control so i start okay so this is going to be the anti conservative bias. It's leaking leaking in but it's not that bad. It's tolerable like the tick tick the same thing it's funny but it's got this little a conservative jabs occasionally but then by the fifth episode also i'll send you find out one of them is one of them is a stretch guy. He's an evangelical christian. Who's preaching at this christian conference called the believe expo and and the gresh the starlight girl she has a christian past she goes there and and it's like a christian conference where they're seeing in the christian contemporary music nick and it's you know really put up. It's it's all the typical cliches and stereotypes of christians but in particularly wanna bring out that it's homophobic <hes> uh-huh and it's it's mocks virginity right and it's all about this girl and it's also fraudulent and the guy i who's the televangelist televangelist preacher. Who's a stretch guy. He's actually a closet homosexual. Who's preaching against homosexuality show -ality because he's really it's all clever grab bag. I like that so is the insult you really secret. It's like oh. That's an insult song because let's let me tell a story where it's like all these anti-christians our act secular atheist are actually secret christians. Do cetera okay so again to me what struck me was not that they're talking questions because of course the whole thing and it just it it just completely attacks christianity and it's all a caricature we would agree that those what was going on there was wrong right but this is to them with chris shany's but my point is is that how can you possibly link christianity and kissing all about worshipping these people as conservative heroes. I think oh yeah yeah the the preacher <hes> superhero guys on stage and says something he literally uses bush's words at nine eleven. We were attacked so we must attack. The foreign nations nations were our enemies or something like that but i heard i found out it was literally a quote from bush <hes> so this is the kind that's real subtle yeah. It's real good movie making correct. They're very artistic but my point was was not that the christians do that all the time. It was that it had it's literally. It's like saying harvey. Weinstein's world is because of christianity. You know it's like these christians are the ones that caused the harvey weinstein world and i'm like really this is what you have to do to make yourself feel better. It's still up to serves or we re being snowflakes for being offended. No i'm not being outranged. I'm just laughing. It was babylon. Be material is the offense more okay. They're attacking us. I don't like that or is it a business. It's a it's an unfair attack and it's feels shoehorned in there just because my the argument is that it is consistent with the rest of the yeah i'm not. I'm not about being outraged it to me it. It is more of the the absurdity of the connection. Okay go ahead and attack christians because you do or have a caricature of christianity fine but to to to say that it is is the thing it link it to the hollywood. Celebrity culture is completely absurd and all that says to me is that's bad storytelling. I mean that's true. That's the point where i'm going like. This is so unsatisfying. Even if i wasn't a christian i would go. This is absurd and has no connection at all. Oh there clearly ideologues who are just full of hatred trying to promote their hagia. It's like it's like when i watch christian movie and they make a caricature of an atheist and i go. Yes and i'm like just cringing. This is unfair to either. I'm not an atheist hist but i'm offended by it because i told me in fact i make the argument in my blog post several times where it's like okay now. We need to have another category of bad atheist. The i'll accept the bad christian movie and i hate them too but let what about bad atheist movies which are preachy and show all the christians as bad and atheists are good here and you know you've got that in the movie exodus movie the noah movie right. You know it's like okay now. Let's have bad atheist movies because they're doing just as basha paul the alien and one of the raiders terrible i did yeah that was a bad movie yeah. Exactly i feel like you almost expect them to have an altar. Call at the end where you to come off and accept your faith. Come up and give up your faith yeah yeah so so in these cases. I'm more like come on. You're you're ideologies is making bad stories and absurd. This isn't satisfying. You know in fact gimme a really good subtle. I've often made the arguments like i actually i. I actually appreciate watching movies that i don't agree with your that. Make good points and you know like feminism is is a classic example zampa. I mean some of my you know. Some some more interesting movies are actually feminist movies. You know <hes>. I mean girls yeah yeah. I mean girls or what we talked about man. Did we talk about mad racks. No we didn't did we ain't mad max men. That's on the next episode. Mad max mad max mad had racks mad max lesson different feminist mad mad men series. You guys look classic. I loved it but i admit that it's like okay. Okay yeah this. These are some of the stereotypes of the fifties but there's partly true and i won't deny that yeah and when i also love that world it was fastened when it's done in an interesting way. That doesn't feel yeah yeah. I think i respect the argument more exactly that's all i'm saying and i'm willing to love those and enjoy those much more so yeah. I thought <hes> just the topic of of the bias against christian by us <hes> in hollywood. I was always interested in and i don't know if this is true anymore but i remember <hes> hearing that you know the g._p. Gene p._g. Thirteen movies make the most money by far but <hes> i remember seeing a graph or something that showed that are rated movies where they made way more of them or something like that was a period of time all right just the idea that <hes> the despite the loss of money there is a and i don't know if that's still true and the move of movies have changed where like p._g. Thirteen almost everything wedges itself even it is p._g. The thirteen so i think it has been doing about that is b.j thirteen yeah. No it's not i swear i swear kit part one. I believe i dispute this fact. Check <hes> p._g. Thirteen so you're wondering if does that have something to do with it. Kinda showed able to buy us and they don't care about making money. Even we will know only that there's an ideologue <hes> eighty logical a desire to put trashier stuff to go for the violence in the shocking stuff even though it would make more money if they made nothing but families zones yeah and you know what i think it is honestly. It's not it's not the executives. Executives is a lot of times. They are more money driven. They really are but it's it's the content creators. It's the writers. Those are the people that like well yeah i. They're not satisfied with. They wanna push the envelope. They want to change society and they realized you gotta do it. Subtly and you gotta do it. Step by step. I confident that writers and directors directors. They are deliberately pushing the envelope because they don't agree with the typical family values or whatever and they want kids to be able to watch more. I mean gene. How else can you have society that is now like talking about in allowing like child drag queens. How is that allowed food but yet it's accepted. You know i mean obviously debated but my point is is that would never have been debated years ago because it's obviously evil and child it's child abuse and pederasty but now it's like no no actually these children may feel like it's their identity. It's like wow they've they've come a long way way so yeah when you said something up as your guiding principle like identity politics yeah then it just opens a gate. I'm wrong except are seeing that it was p._g. Thirteen tim yeah gosh there was or who came out that was p._g. Thirteen i know what you're saying. There's a lot more thirteen movies coming out excited it part. Two comes comes out in two weeks. I love that movie at best stephen king adaptation well. Maybe the shining good argument yeah. I don't art should wrap this up. This has been a beefy episode with lots of thoughts and <hes>. Let's move on to hate mail with move onto hate mail unless i miss adam for to we all miss out on for we always rolling in his grave right now. Rolling genus great future. He's not dead all right so we got some hate mail this week this from someone who has added a stirring the cavenaugh hearings and the classic we're going back to the class or class archives and and the weird thing is they're mad that we're making fun of cavenaugh but i don't know that we did much kind of what we might do. What am i doing one or to push back at cavanaugh. A little bit just made some lighthearted it fun of him. I can't remember but i don't know maybe they just took it the wrong way anyway.

The Voice Of The Babylon Bee: The Dave DeAndrea Interview

"Real people real interviews. I just have to say that I object strenuously to your use of the word Valeria. Hard hitting questions. What do you think about it taking you to the cutting edge of truths? Yeah well last yet. Is One of the worst movies ever made? And it was very clear that Brian Johnson doesn't like Star Wars. Kyle pulls no punches. I want to ask how how you're able to sleep at night. He's a brings bone shattering common sense from the top rope. Double Dare you. This is the Babylon be interview. Show all right and we are here in the interview studio at Babylon be headquarters with the voice of the Babylon be. You know him as the guy says flowerbed. This is named the Andrea Mild. Friend Dave Deandra. Heidi underline old guys. How are you doing how you doing doing talk sultry? I feel like I need to mask more masculine year. Because it's like Kermit the frog and squeaky voice and now we're talking today and it's just. I'm intimidated. Yeah I used to go through. I knew I've known David since I was a young life. He was On the local Christian radio station in my hometown. Smalltown Oregon. I don't know if I wanted to. Access by tying the exact the exact city because it is pretty small city but I'm probably already have at some point but It's a small town and I remember in here days voice on the radio station. The Christian radio station has a brand new Christian and so I started listening to crush radio because that was the kind of radio to listen to if you go to heaven and This voice would come over and smells like this great voice like I wanted to read me bedtime stories way. What Year was year? I probably ninety nine ninety eight ninety nine or ninety nine right around two thousand because I just getting out of High School. I think so. It was like Listen to this new hit from audio adrenaline. Big Wait David. Can You just snap back to K light? And then you me like the sample of something you'd say into the Mike in those days. How boy Will your early. I probably would have been on the afternoon show at that point which was A two hour window of time where we played more Progressive Christian music like audio adrenaline. Frog it's fantastic aggressive a Wayne Watson. Free-zone know at that time it was The cutting it Yeah it was Yes it took many names. I think it was the bright side and it was the bright side cutting edge and I think we ended up on the edge At some point but you guys play a lot of five are in Princeton. Remember that played that Yeah trying to slip in some of that and AMEX. Px sometimes and things like that and they played our band one time Hammer. Who is it? Who Player Band One time on k? Late like we came in and they interviewed S. We need one song. They played one hour. Have Them I can't remember from Lu- lunar active. Yeah oh I don't know if I'd been me remember if you're not. Yeah I'm sure it was amazing but Yeah so so yeah. You're like welcome to the edge. Yeah boy throwing the DJ thing. Yeah the thing is I was being on the radio as I. I went through my early years of trying to sound like other really great. Dj's that I that I knew I wanted to emulate and quickly realized I better just be myself and so it was mostly just talking like this. I don't think there's a whole lot of hype involved Especially when you're working in in Christian radio kind of have to empty yourself yourself and just be just be a real person and so I I don't know if I landed there or not but So it probably wouldn't have sounded a whole different than me just talking right now. Hey good afternoon listen to the cutting edge audio adrenaline big house. You know it was not a big deal. You're listening lasers yeah slogan for the cutting edge. Chinese rock on air one grownup was always like the positive alternative but the DJ's were always so happy. Like supernatural happy. I always felt like Yeah they'd get fired if they said something negative on the air and I and I think that was probably a carryover from other southern station. Still do that and I think they You know there's a place I guess for for being bombed out and and doing things but different DJ's have different styles in different areas I don't know if you are familiar with like getting brand Hanson. Who's got a? He's syndicated all over now. But he's he's one of those real down to Earth real guys. He's not hyper. I mean they have fun but it's just kind of being real and I think things are leaning more towards that and more kind of Little more human to where it's not fakey and everything's okay all the time. 'cause everything's not okay all the time. Sometimes you know you go through rough stuff and I think people appreciate when you when you real so it. Although that can be abused for sure know some people you know old. Save just You use I'm getting off on a tangent here already. Sorry but Yeah using that even just as I'm just just being real. Just keep your real and yeah which is like. I'm just being vulnerable here man. Yeah yeah transparent. I feel like maybe our reality should be more like the good stuff not like the keeping. It real equals the bad stuff. I'm doing yeah like people will look at Jesus right now just keep a real you know as opposed to like the shiny his. I think of when I think of the Christian radio. Dj they're like the guy in the sort of God. I can't even do. I can't do the voice. He died for you on the crust. Like when they say like in that like disk. Jockey voice really weird to me but the reaction of kind of the nineties grunge generation. I think and I probably started the sixties really was like you know that polished Newscaster Johnny Carson of leave it to beaver type of everybody's clean cut and Nice right. The reaction is to to act being real as to be the opposite of every whatever that is right you know. That's not really. Their real is one of those words that I hate. Because it's just it could mean anything it's kind like the word progressive or well. Yeah progressive that will guest to me. 'cause there's mean anything like what do you. What's progressive? What? What are we progressing towards? They won't put a name on it. You know real what Israel we define. What our Terada terms are so. It's it's more like an excuse to to do what we WANNA do. Yeah and I I still like I like listening to deejays like that. Still sometimes aren't very many left out there but some of those haggled sound major but some of those old timey. Dj's Yeah One of my all time favorite Dj's scanning Bill Lee and he's on He's still on he's on he's been all over but Wcbs FM OUT OF NEW YORK. And he's been there for forever kind of the one of these guys who would rhyme a lot of things and Just just have tons of of energy in just one of those cool radio guys that I tried to emulate eaten would listen back to my my air checks after show. Listen back to the recording. I I sound like an idiot on it. Sound like just any of these recordings any of his recordings a year old recordings of mildly. I've got in fact underneath my my my desk here. I've got a box full of old Cassettes that I'm out. Some of which I've tried to transfer it to digital and listen to but it's pretty embarrassing stuff. I don't revel in those those old years very much so I get this image you know. You're this voiceover guy. Get this nice rich voice so when you were like five years old you hadn't said anything hadn't Sydney words up to this point and all of a sudden you just start talking this rich like baritone voice and he and and then your parents go like mo. Mother would like a lowly pop and they go. He's the chosen one is destined to be in radio. That's how it works out with all talents. You just five and then all of a sudden you can draw really well takes no effort yeah takes. There's no work involved Dave Dave No. There's no yeah no you just turn on the Mike and start talking. This really seems to be working. No not the tomato. I don't remember much from when I was five so that that could have been how it went but I don't think I don't think that's how it happens. I I Never thought really a whole lot about I I think maybe early on thought about maybe being a radio. Dj Love Listening to the radio and calling in and pastoring the DJ's in requesting sauce over and over and over until they you know they they would finally play them and then called them immediately afterwards and requested again. I just played it. What is wrong with you kid but Trying to up a cassette tape full of the same song over and over again. It's crazy. We have to tell our kids about this time when we had to call into a radio station. Yeah Song as exciting. Now it's like Siri play this song boom right there. We have our own radio stations. The theory that maybe thinking of Alexa. They're related anyway automated. Just you just made everybody's phone start doing something. Yeah this is my daughter when I'm on on facetime with their own because they've got A. They've got their lights in the house. I'll setup for cereal very turn off the lights out the lights where you just did it because I do that in your your anybody. Listening to this podcast. It has Siri in lights. It's going to do it. Did IT TO TRY IT LIST. Right play big house by audio adrenaline. Thank you for your service. So I imagine that Dave didn't I think probably in high school he was like. Oh Man I can't wait to go to date with Susie and whole food. Oh Hey descend shown down his voice just to within five minutes like this very quick clear your throat. Yeah yeah was it was a matter of your voice kind of rich nice like early on and people like hey man you should do radio and you're like. Oh yeah maybe I should or was it. Radio is cool. I'm going to work getting rich voice. No and I. It's funny because I don't think of. I don't think of myself or describe myself. Is that way. I just hear myself talking. Yes I you know when people say things like that. Oh come on you know Because I you know there are other guys with great voices who I always compare yourself. I guess to somebody else. And it's like Whoa Cam. No James Earl Jones or whoever these wherever them. The icons are go for the deal voices. Well he's the narrator for sure I mean yeah pretty thing you compare yourself to. Oh I see yeah maybe we can look deep Jones. Isn't that good you were like. Oh No really James. Earl gentlemen just like you don't want to as low as James Earl Jones like he's got the market cornered right. It's like I'm not as funny as Jerry Seinfeld. It's like you compared to the very best you. Yes Yeah so it was never a thing. I don't know that anybody ever said why you should be on radio. You've got a great voice. Because I when I started in radio All kind of went from being a Diaz was the eighty s and so break. Dancing was big so I started off trying to be a break dancer and not being very good and so I got into the DJ part. Instead we spend on your head you know. What was your hairstyle like? Oh well it varied but You know for the most part. It was in some way shape or form. Pretty mullet like That evolved over over time but yeah it was. Yeah that makes sense. I never thought of it because the Eighties. So many people mullets. And there's a lot of people break dancing. So there'd be some crossover there'd be guys with mullets break dancing. Yeah well yeah. It's not just rednecks anymore. I wonder what that Diagram looks like. Mullets yeah because as I mentioned David. That kid and play Hairdo. We're like the it's like a shrub. Show chopped off on top of flat. Just the straight up the Strait of yeah up. Yeah Yeah are you never had one of those things now? I can pull that off but Anyway let's say got into Dj then into Dj in these under twenty one dance clubs meeting some local radio deejays who had come down there every once in a while and kind of at the age of fifteen so kind of finally bothered them enough to where they let me try it out and and how a lot of fun is back from the hour playing actual records and have them up and kind of doing everything live and there's a lot of fun for the millennials listening. What is a record well? It came in a variety of sizes and speeds. And you'd have to play it. Had there was a forty five with a big hole and then in the middle and then there was a thirty three in the third. Which is you know. Kind of many in the potato guy voice potato guideway potatoes potato simply okay. This is just poking do something funny says a while ago. I had a friend A teacher friend who was teaching overseas In Korea and every year she would Do this skype call with me With the kids I think they're like maybe fifth grade sixth grade kids and she was very into Axe Cop and so she played a lot of the cup stuff for the kids and and they would come up and they asked me to do stuff. I'd never even done before these impersonations. It was just the biggest disappointment. You could see another face. Can you do iron man? I don't do Robert Downey Junior. I'm seconds people think I can just out of my head draw every cartoon character because I draw my own cartoon characters right Kahlil Trabi you know some obscure character whenever and even ones that I know like iron man like there's details in his armor and stuff that if you don't get the is the right amount now like a part in the size of the portions right immediate looks off because you've seen that icon so many times but you've never tried to draw none of us. You know very few of us have so I'll draw some wonky ridiculous looking ironman or whatever and they walk away. Very disappointed shattered their even more shattered. When I dry expectation no expert because they're looking at my other drawings the skies professional women so I hate it actually be I do. I love it when people ask me. Draw People's characters but that's a that's a side side quest. Yeah and I. I mean there's some people who make a great living doing really good impersonation people I you know I I do one or two in there. Okay but that's not really I don't do a lot of The call eighty are worker. You know do you know if they can't get the you know Dwayne the Rock Johnson. Or somebody to to Redo his line or they need to fill it in for something. They'll have somebody sounds like him do it and I. I don't do a lot of that work but have you done any ever. What's that have you ever done any you know? I've I've tried Some but for the for the impersonations that I do. They're already kind of these two guys in Hollywood that you know there's there's plenty of guys You know who can fill in for Morgan Freeman. Or you know these other people to where they're they're they're not really looking for anybody else do. They've got their guys. They know okay. We need to call Tom. Kaine whoever you know they're gonNA call. Who Does it really well? And some mine's just more of a party trick. It's pretty cool party tricked. Yeah yeah all the rides at Disneyland when they have the cartoon characters talking clearly not. They're not even close sad. Yeah Kyle would just watching The week that's true In new episode of Star Wars Clone. Wars out around the Disney plus watching the first one. I hadn't really watched a whole lot of those but I'm I don't know who does it. And they do a good job. But you know it's like Samuel L. Jackson is a very distinctive very specific voice. It's like you could tell that Mace Windu it's like that is not Samuel L. Thanks good have you sir. I have heard Samuel L. Jackson and I don't mean to insult that Guy. Whoever's doing it at all because he's doing a good job but it's just such a distinctive voice it's like and. I don't think they're necessarily trying to do a perfect amelioration of any of those actors or characters that kind of have made it their own clone over with years and done a great job. Yeah you're right like you said you know it's like you can tell from a movie version versus being a Disneyland like that's you know or even the I I don't WanNa spoil it for any kids you know it's not the real Cinderella or Cinderella. It'd be like a German woman from like a long time ago. Is that how sandwich? Yeah maybe plus. She's a cartoon some kind of what I'm thinking I had a question I lost. It wasn't I don't know I'm sorry answered any of your questions. Something a handsome have you. Have you worked on your Samuel Jackson? No that's not one that I've s 'cause we know that Dave is. He's one of the best people on Earth. You won't like you are very strict on your what you will say. You won't say anything that comes close to a swear your nope not doing it. And I I highly respect that but then that's what going crackup attempting to do. Samuel Jackson impression like just stepping minefield. I'd have to drop a flowerbed bomber to massive guard our by these flower bidding snakes. This lower betting plan this flower. Bending that whole thing too is so funny to me. I don't know what I mean. 'cause I don't read all the the reviews or comments and the the you guys told me that that's something that it's taken off is just so funny and that was your idea years like let's just say a bunch of these funny thing is actually the idea for the far bid came from Ben. One of our guests. Ben How and how yeah. He's actually a guest because a lot of our fans are fans and he was kind of an anti trump guy so a lot of didn't seem to really happy with the episode but he provided with them with our beds. So it's a good picture of how the Lord uses the evil. Not The evil antitrust the good and evil using myself. I was at my daughter's basketball game the other day and I was. I was uttering a flower bed or two flower bed. My son was there and he knew he's a big fan of the podcast. Uc doing it to make him laugh. Mostly but I have I have instructed Ethan. To make a t shirt that's flower bedding love the Babylon podcast. Anything is drawing the speed out on my list anywhere so I gotta get it on the list somewhere if you don't send them an email or an invite a main thing. I'm working right now. The book so I think it's not the book I'm like okay. Cool and ignore it so we need to release the shirt in tandem with the Dave Andrea episode. Because it all got it out there so listeners you can now go on our Friday and Bhai. This shirt exclusive podcast Jonquil. Listen to podcasts will get you will walk around and wear it and everybody apt to ask. You'll have to be ready with an answer. That's all says you have to be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in you. I'm a big fan of novelty shirts. So there's definitely when I would wear some. I'm actually surprised what people buy. Yeah and t shirt as a t shirt but it feels like yeah throwing. What do you throw it all what? What's the analogy? He throws something. Walt he sticks out item. You just throw things. No there was an item. Like base jumping spaghetti. That's getting ASTA. Secrets cooked the wall to wall with sticks. I guess I don't know Yeah with T shirt designs like I have no idea if possible plea predictable to me. I think the white hope that was a new thing was Peter Budweiser hoops. Just want it. Because I know bagging and we're going to be called You called the doors hobbits in our last episode the door in the Hobbit book. You said that he's the cute hobbit or something. I mean you were talking about thorn the door. Oh yeah they're not. He's hobbies angry emails about. Oh Yeah Yeah. He is a door and I just kept going so talk about how much I love Tolkien. I call them the hot. The hot hobbit. Yeah there's a little a little wiggle room when it comes to you know Well not for big fans but you know when you're quoting the Bible you kind of want to get it right more often than not brutal Sammy. Quitting into mead Dork. Though speaking to teach her teeth and I don't know if you recall the t shirt I had you make years ago for me now on the way we met. I don't know what you're talking about but The way we met was you're on the morning show on that Christian radio station with another guy named Rick and I attempted. You thought you guys just as the thinks I can dryer man thought. Oh this guy can draw cartoons he could draw. Caricatures of US racketeers. A very it's zone specific. You know then I also like I could figure it out because any money so I did my best. I tried my hardest to dry you guys and I. I couldn't not draw the other guy. Drut you find. I believe but for some reason no matter how I tried. I Drew Rick and he looked evil. Every time I drove his eyes look snarling nostrils little beady eyes. He looked like joker. You guys trying to nicely say can you make them look evil devil angry well he was under a lot of stress in that time period is now. I have a very probably caricature easy features. You can get a goatee and glasses. And he's on there but even his shaven class not you can actually draw those things without a face and people know this gets Bernie hair and glasses. You know it is only when you you think a person they have those standoff features. Sorry Continue Yeah. And so yeah. That's not the t shirt I was thinking about. I think we did end up using your thought we did. We didn't maybe with somebody else but ended up going with somebody else for drawing a brick just never worked out or 'cause I always remember the failures in life might have been but then I this was a few years later When uh some friends and I decided to None of us were bowlers but decided to do a summer. Bowling League Social Bowling League and So we should get a t shirt made and we. We came up with the brilliant name of grace to spare spare and bowling and be Christian to. I got it and we ended up if you have to explain. Maybe it's not that brilliant anyway. We ended up winning because our handicaps are so huge for the season but anyway had Eastern come down and so he did this amazing character of the four of us with big embiid grace despair their bowling and it was amazing and I am sure I've still got that drawing around here somewhere but Wow I remember that name. I cannot remember the drawing in my head. If I'd try. Yeah one guy was kind of hit. Always he crouch down kind of weird. Like a cat's he had him kind of down. The Cougar pose. Another guy had been golf clubs and yeah was it was it was a wonder to behold. I'm glad you guys liked. It is happy to make up for the other day failure in the morning. Yeah exactly it's called really stand by David before that. That was the first time I started going by by day. Because it doesn't work. It's gotta be Ricky doesn't I thought Before that I was always David David d deal not my work David Dein. Yeah I was wondering what you actually look like because I guess I never. I don't know he looks kind of like you. Were bigger bigger with glasses. Kyle if you were more attractive so the no because you always you hear these rich voices on the radio and then it ends up being like this five foot tall bald guy so I was just curious. Are you like I kind of picture? You like? Who's the guy that voices Cronk or Patrick Yeah that's Kinda. How true is that? How you He kinda he has a goatee. Like you like the same. I can just google paint. A mental picture is a drawing of him to I. Don't know if you still use my caricature Louis figuring logo but Dave drawing. They gave him a I. I got on facebook and I started doing. They're showing me a picture of cooking. He's examining shadow. I didn't shatter my image of you. Just didn't ruin me. He's a big teddy bear of a man appreciation for you or anything. I'm I'm no Patrick. Warburton I'll tell you that Patrick Warburton man that's all he does one of the telling. Just explain this. Somebody just how funny he is. And how the the the Seinfeld episode where he and Elaine or on the plane and he's just staring forward in at nothing you know the whole time and that's right just is He does the he does the ride intro for one of the rides at Disneyland these. He's on he's on the video screen. Doing Great Yeah so flying together for our own over the world now is that you have done day like leg with just people. No I know you. I find that amazing. 'cause I lived in the same little town as You. I moved out to La and then suddenly like hearing your voice on TV and on the radio. And because I know your voice and that so what are just do some name-dropping right now. Let's hear some of the voices you've done for a and when you say when you say voices that makes people think is like characters wherever but like not that but like Like brand products And things I'm looking at my own website here. S what have I done There was an ad there had for App game called game four years ago. I did that. That was almost kind of Morgan. Freeman Leeson of a voice. I did their Drug Company like a path. I did that Gore. Being you mentioned simply potatoes I do triple a. car dealerships. I'm on something newer As of last year I'm the narrator on this show on the investigation discovery channel called murder tapes. Which is on Wednesday nights and That's that's a fun new adventure and yeah trick is just make everybody sound guilty. It's Kinda fun though. The station discovery shows like a drives me crazy. The ones where it's about like Women that Moore or couples and they get like this. Sassy sultry woman voice. And she's like he was about to get I don't know there's like she's talking about a person being murdered and she's making this like really bad pun about like you know he was about to have to cut it out or something that's hidden sledgehammer. Something it'll be like this is your biggest smash hit yet really disturbing to me. I don't Know Yeah. It was wondering tape there. It's a good show. Okay Stan me as funny as in the last year you know I I try Because I have hope because of the Lord my life I feel like you know most time. I saw him kind of hopeful. But there was a little season Way Back back. I got a couple of these jobs to voice things that was like One was like there was this A suicide awareness campaign so I was the voice kind of 'em the voice of suicide basically and kind of what suicide says to you analyst stuff in right after that. I got a job where I was the voice of of Pediatric Cancer Snow. While you were the void of suicide in weight Voice of suicides. You say what suicide says. Yeah I remember exactly how it How goes one on one is on my website called? Don't give up or something like that and this mean is like talking to kids like don't you know don't even bother getting up and don't you know you're helpless and I mean this is really a dark stuff you know. I'm glad to the campaigns and do that but I just feel like I'm suddenly. The Voice of hopelessness admitted. Put It on my business card and black background and the Andrea Voice of cancer cancer and children suicide lead writer writing lines of like Kay if I was child cancer what would I say. Yeah hearing them. Steering Kidney is dark. You know. That's that's coming from. You know these hospitals in places people are dealing with that every day so they they know what they're going through what they what it feels like and so the things were well well written. It wasn't trying to be jokey or we're not training. We saying. Yeah it's like I don't know how you would scooting away from us as we make jokes about cancer he's GonNa Start. Adding like the ANDROID is not endorse. Anything is expressed gender. I do not approve this message. I remember you were on the battleship game. And that got you that landed juillet interview on written link five yes And thank you again for Giving me something to give to them with the The EX COPs dry ex-cop drawings to you did for the guys but yeah that was That was that was a weird thing. My my family was Fans of watching Good mythical morning read Lincoln and Wasn't really aware that they had several other channels. Are Or things that good mythical morning but a a friend of my wife's texted her one time and said I think written link or talking about Dave and they're kind of after show good mythical more where they were playing battleship and This electronic battleship the board game but it has voices and stuff on it and they had commented how much they liked the voice. I didn't even afforest to say we need to find this guy and I didn't know because we didn't find out about two months later. And so by the time I was able to connect with them. I thought the other their passes probably don't even remember it but It worked out to where I came down. Did one of their ear biscuits podcasts. And and had a lot of Fun and just before I was going to talk to you guys my wife for Saint. You've got to have something prepared just like you did for Renton Link. You have to have a Well funny for them. I had a A US this this APP. That kind of You could store different little sound bites playing at a punch type thing. So I'd recorded these These different things that I really studied the episode where they were talking about being referred back to that and kind of played back some of the the phrases that they said. Oh degrade to hear Dave say this or whatever and did that and just had a lot of fun with it and and because otherwise it's I'm not always real good on the spot and I think they were just going to have me probably do a commentary and imaginary commentary there eating or something I said. So you're the movie so you're the battleship or Of this board game wants suddenly originally did. I didn't even know it was going to be the the board game. I thought When I got I thought I was GONNA be like a hand held or maybe an APP or something. I don't know but It was myself and a few other voices. Nobody who I know or or met but On the same route no. He was out on a battleship. So you could get into the yeah. Yeah really really get into the Roth. Yeah no it was It was the battle has begun very similar to the battle on the INTRO. Actually that's an ESA voice. They they liked and it's funny 'cause commenting tons of people on there so on the voice. I'm the voice guy you were looking for your not. I'm anyway it's a funny. We took a trip to To Burbank wherever they were and I was a lot of fun. A lot of fun cool. Yes I don't know if I am. This is total side note but I heard I heard they just did a podcast said. They've gone agnostic. Yeah now too. I didn't listen to you but I heard. I don't know who this is linked to massive on Youtube. Okay I'm and I love those guys Genuinely and You know I had heard. I knew that they had done work. researching ministries. Yeah we'll fisher. The way I I heard of them was the church. I was going to in Hollywood When I when I moved here I went to like a hipster. Hollywood church for a little while trying to find a wife and then immediately lead the church. The sort of a mutual friend said Hey June renton link car that he was not sterling. I Dunno talk like that. High Rutten lead the ex-cop they want to let you know they're big fans or whatever I'm like. Oh cool thanks. I'll look videos because I didn't know they were later. I was like. Oh they're big. Wow they're really big. Look at the numbers like holy cow. I should've I should've known better but Actually went to the church. I think they went to that when I went to a different one but there is through another mutual Christian friend. And they like you know. 'cause everybody's tells you like. Oh Yeah. These guys are Christians or whatever anyway so that's how I first heard about it and I saw them on Fisher has a thing called. What's in the Bible and they sing a song on one of his things on there. Yeah they were they. I can't remember the names of these characters. They did but they do. These songs about Bible Stories are remembering the books of the Bible names and those types of things and and so. We didn't really talk a lot about spiritual things when I was down there I May I think the most you know I I may have asked afterwards you know. How can we pray for you guys? And they just kind of said something like you know as pray for direction for us for this year. Whatever but Yeah we recently watched I think they had like a series of several things. Where they were recapping their missionary years. And all these things but the ones that I watched were More of a spiritual deconstruction and and For me In for my family it was just I don't know just really heartbreaking and it's And it's something that you know. These guys have gone from You Know Rhett was leading Bible studies research very involved. I mean do you know church work? was their livelihood. I mean it was all the what they were about and Over the course of of time questions arose. And it's kind of one of those difficult situations where I don't think there's anything that I could say that. They had already thought through or would anticipate or heard that would change their mind about about the direction that they've gone but It was really. It was just sad to hear how For for red in particular He shared his first. And then the following week link shared his and and this is really putting it into a nutshell. But how it started from just this this seed of questioning perhaps the age of the earth and that kind of stuff and how that grew to questioning maybe considering evolution then questioning whether Adam and Eve really even existed then questioning whether really any of the stories in the Old Testament were true and finally as as much as They didn't want to go there to really even questioning whether the resurrection was a thing or not really happened or not and And I just It was a gradual progression of writing. Maybe a decade for those guys. I wasn't just all of a sudden they woke up and said I just don't believe this any more but In these scenes we don't usually one guy drops off. It's weird that they did it together. I guess there yeah yeah. They've been around and this was you know what I mean You know having to go through this with their their wives and maybe their wives not being on board with where they were going at first but but You know to me in fact that was just my my wife and I facilitate a Bible study for for high schoolers and I have a chance to to share the other night and to me it would just really started with you. Know literally the oldest trick in the book the book being the Bible and you'll the trick being Satan saying did God really say you know Because from that little seed of doubt ego on from questioning God's word to questioning God's motives question God's existence altogether and and I I feel like that's maybe what has happened with those guys. I don't know for sure and I'm not here saying they're no longer Christians or they never or Christians I. I don't know them I hope. Is that You know that they'll circle back around their stories done but But I think for a lot of us I think I I think. Satan's got a pretty thin playbook. I think he can get us to to to question. God's Word or it could be interpreted this way or you know in the Greek. Maybe it means this or the he you know and You start letting that come in. And it's just a very stunning sad example of of where that can end up you know and so I pray for those guys and and it's not like they're you know seems sad or anything. I mean they've gone on with their life You know but I I just I. I hope that they'll circle background. That's my that's my hair so- older creationism diet. Atheism or at least diagnosis. Yeah and I know that they're necessarily saying there is no God. I think right now. They're kind of in a And I don't know phase. Yeah Yeah But right now we know the tantalizing topic of the show will be link atheists DVD Andrea. Well I mean. We need to move into our subscriber portion. Yeah what are we going to do that subscribe? Do you have a really cool conversion story. What's your like were you in gang gang or prison. Or How many people did you stab things I was I was in the Prison Game. Also gave and adopt. I WanNa Talk Dory so we'd love to hear those in the subscriber portion and I would love to read some bonus hate mail. So let's re we're GONNA read. Are we gonna read actual email? Oh I guess we don't. We don't because this isn't this. Is the interview show and do whatever we want you guys. We're going to have. Dave read on the spot in the hot seat. Some hate mail in the subscriber Yeah also I just had an idea can we do this can can mean Ethan do the Intros in altruism for this show or or Cynthia? Dan Staring at me like Cynthia Cynthia. Do you have you heard Cynthia Dave? I think I heard Cynthia wants I'm like who's this chick taking my job. I didn't know where she comes in you. You'd have to get to hear. It was but she talks to you because it was one where like we last minute to get more voice over in and they just didn't have time to get you even though you're fast so fast automated voice so she just kept talking about how much more efficient she is than the Deandra. Because we've been meaning to start writing. We've been meeting to rights. Start writing scripts. Where like you're talking and she starts to interrupt you and like this. The robot takeover. So we'll do. It said well. She's like a speaking spell kind of thing or it's just send that comes with a program like Microsoft. Whatever I s sounds very annoyed when she talks.

Thank you bill and thanks once again to our fake audience, which this week is everybody who's cable went out right before nine pm eastern on Tuesday. And stayed out throughout the rest of the week. It really was quite a week. Now, we all expected an October surprise, but we didn't expect it at eleven pm on October first, and when you think about it, it really was more like an October. Oh, what a surprise later on we're GONNA be talking to an expert on dealing with the unexpected with APLOMB. That's the British ambassador to the United, states? Dame Karen Pierce. But right now, we are very eager to hear you say the appropriate things at a time like this. The number to call is one triple eight. Wait wait that's one, eight, eight, eight, nine, two, four, eight, nine, two, four. Let's welcome our first listener contestant. Hi, you're on wait wait don't tell me. This is Chrissie I'm from Grand Rapids Michigan Michigan. So is it fun these days living in a swing state? It is. It is what it is. There was there was a time when living a swing state was like, Oh, it's great to see the candidates come your face a lot of attention and it has become. It is what it is. I completely understand Chrissy. Let me introduce you to our panel I. It's a comedian. You can see at the Tempe Improv in Arizona November twelfth through the fourteenth his podcast back to school with Mazda O'Brien is available anywhere. PODCASTS are found its Mas Job Ronnie. You're voting. Next an emmy winning writer, as well as the voice of Jesse on the animated hit Netflix show big mouth. He's also the author of the New York Times bestseller you'll grow out of it. It's Jesse Cli-. COMEDIAN PREMIERING HIS NEW TV pilot I of the idea on November eighteen that Chicago ideas dot com it's Brian Babylon. In the building. Welcome to the show Chrissy you're GONNA play who bill this time Bill Curtis is going to reach three quotations from this week's news. You can correctly identify explains two of them. You will win our prize any voice from our show you choose your voicemail ready to play ready. All Alright Chrissy here is your first quote. We will get through this together. That was the president announcing on Thursday night that he and the first lady both have what corona virus. Yes. That's right now we absolutely hope. That both the president and his wife get will soon and we do not want to make jokes about him getting sick because it is a very serious disease. Despite what you've heard from the president the say one thing you may Jesse. So. So important to where mask. Important I'm just saying it's just really important to where miss is as a concern a concerned citizen I hope that he just takes the time to rest and stays off twitter till November fourth and. Things will work out I. Feel like we need to feel bad for the president I mean it's going to be hard for him to just I dunno sit around and watch Fox News all day instead of his. Team, which is pacing back and forth while watching Fox News all day. And he's announced the White, house I should say has announced they're going to be canceling or making virtual of his upcoming campaign appearances, which is another blow to the president because he had his first idea was to hold a get well soon, rally with twenty thousand people on Monday. It's really important to also social distance you've gotta search this. Just trying to say helpful things I, appreciated I'm sure he's going to come out and be like we had the best locked down the most tremendous not was tremendous. Most amazing. I keep thinking and and and I'm sorry because you know we've all been quarantining for months now but the president famously sort of refused to do it now he has to what is the trump quarantine gonna look like is like is Baloney going to post pictures of her sour note starter and trump will be like bake news. Boy. It's also so important to wash your hands. Those things are really our main tools and fighting this pandemic. Or Chrissy, let's move on to the other Earth Shattering story from earlier in the week. Remember there was an earlier in the week Your next quote is from actor Mark Hamill. That was the worst thing I've ever seen him. I was in the Star Wars holiday. Special. Mr Hamill bless his heart was reacting to something that everybody ended up regretting watching on Tuesday night. What was it? Debate. Was Yes the first presidential debate, a twenty twenty ended up being one of those epochal historic moments years from now people will ask, do you remember where you were when man I walk on Chris Wallace? Nobody has seen men talking over each other that much. Since every zoom meeting, we have been to in the last six months. And the insanity of it made all the previous debate brew has so quaint. Remember when Al Gore lost the debate because he side no thing when I saw the base first thing. and. I've been asking myself. This is when are they gonNA come out with as xanax messed. Zanex but in a missive warm, you can spritz really on people just to tone them down. You know more subtle than just the tranquilizer dart to the neck you I thought you were talking about something for us. I. was really into this, but it was Chris Chris. Wallace was almost like a substitute teacher that couldn't handle a class at the noxious boarding school for old guy. Man Boarding school like, Hey, down can I tell you the truth though I? I did not watch it. You didn't. Nor will I be watching the other ones? Should they happen but I didn't because? Because obviously. What you're the kind of person who can drive by a car crash and just keep on going and never slow down. That's just. Good. I need to get where I'm going right away and I'll tell you what my counter programming was was one made. I literally made myself of Banana. Split. And Drinking Tequila. And I'm GonNa do it again according to the ratings? You had a better time than sixty million Americans. Time, I put three chocolate chips on top of the whipped cream, and then I, ate it and then I ate the whole bag of junk. Felt like it was barely touching when I need to touch all the other chocolate chips thought they had escaped, but they didn't realize. It's just a mind game. So. Trump's performance at the debate was panned all over the place Republicans Democrats everybody you have to hand to them after the debate he really needed to change the news cycle somehow and boy did he go for the Gusto? Would you have to give you have to give trump some understanding He was specifically asked to condemn this white supremacist group the proud boys, and he couldn't do it but give him a break. He's never had the chance to say proud and boys in the same sentence his boys are done junior eric. Don't voice found like a horrible barbershop. Quartet, from the fifties. Such it's such a bad name it really like To help them in any way. I kind of feel like they need a better name you are spot on because at least on the left Antifa anti-fascist via. The right has proud boys and then they got the boo boo horrible naming they both sound like a like things that Dunkin donuts almost made and didn't. But antiques antique for sounds like old soul singer that didn't make because aretha Franklin was better. Anti. Facet as anti far. Because There's a Netflix documentary where it's like we all should have really been listening to. All Right Chrissy your last quote is a spokesperson for a major sandwich chain. Are Bread is, of course bread. The spokesman was responding to a judgment that there wasn't really bread. What is chain? A might yes subway very good. Out that, when you buy a sub sandwich at a subway shop, you're not buying meat between two slices of bread. It's more like to lows of Candy, the supreme. Court of Ireland ruled that it can't legally be called bread and thus be exempt from a certain tax because it has too much sugar in it. This is why so many parents tell their kids they can only have their subway sandwich if they finish their dinner I'm confused wait a minute. So subways like so's not bread is more as closer to cake than it is. So in Ireland, they have a tax on all foods except for what they call staples, which includes things like bread and vegetables and stuff like that, and they determined that subway bread isn't really bread because it has way too much sugar in it. So it's more like as you say, a cake of some I, mean if you've eaten subway have eaten at subway anytime in the last ten years let's bite into that bread. It's a rush. It's pretty clear. It's not bread. It's like an Improv show about bread. Ribs on Brad, we need we need a suggestion of a grain please. Yeah. I need a location, the sandwich, a name brand name. Bill how did Chrissy doing our quiz? Kersee you Michigan Proud. You got them. All right. Congratulations, Chrissy. Thank you, l.. Thank you. Thanks for playing and take. Care Yukio. Right. Now, panel, it is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Brian. The UK's National Parrot Sanctuary head to remove five parrots from public view after they kept doing what? Swearing cursing swearing yes. They foul-mouthed parrots. Given to the sanctuary by five different owners in one week, and then when they were quarantining together, they taught each other to swear. The park CEO says that when the parents eventually went on public display quote literally within twenty minutes, we were told that they had sworn at a customer. If the next group of people, all sorts of obscenities came out they say they're worried about the children and honestly this is the only thing that would make me want to visit a bird sanctuary, those parrots, their pg thirteen those are are, and I'm sorry if you WanNa to look at that parrot I'm going to need to see your ID and have you sign a release.

We are playing this week with months job Brownie Brian Babylon and Jessi Klein, and hearing it as your host the moderator of the next presidential. Debates. Heaters Sagaing. Thank you bill and God forbid right now it is time for the wait wait. Don't tell me bluff the listener game called one triple eight wait to play our game on the air. Hi, you are on. Wait wait. Don't tell me. Peter. Thank you. This is Michael White from Lancaster Pennsylvania Lancaster. I. Haven't been there but I understand it's the heart of Amish country. Is that correct it and how have you been doing during lockdown? I have doing great tons of baking. Lots of NBA Basketball Lately, insurance a lot of time with my my one year old baby boy. Oh my gosh will what it came at a good time. You can stay home for him on that. I know well, Michael Welcome to our show. You'RE GONNA play the game which you have to tell truth from fiction. What is the topic? Bill? And the bubble toil and trouble. NBA. Bubble is awesome because even if you're not into basketball, you like the idea of rich people being trapped inside somewhere. Our panelists are going to tell you about someone making the most of their time in the bubble pick the one who's telling the truth win our prize the waiter of your choice on your voicemail you ready to play. Oh My life ambition here I'm ready to go. I'm both flattered in a little worried for you but okay I. Let's hear from Mas Job Ronnie the NBA is now truly an international league. So what happens when you put a bunch of foreign born players into a bubble with a lot of free time on their hands for iranian-born Magid John Son the answer was simple open up a language school to teach your teammates, how to speak Persian or Farsi. When the seven foot third string backup center for the Indiana Pacers found himself cooped up in his hotel room. He decided to offer free language lessons to his teammates I had to come up with a name for the course says son. I personally learned English from the APP Babble and we currently in a bubble. So I took the letter A. From Babbel, and the letter you from bubble and pick the letter that comes in the middle of these two, which was K. so I named my classes apple. which is the sound chickens used to make on my farm back in Iran popper partner. To his teammates pleasant surprise. Many of the basketball terms in Persian were very similar in English. For example, the word for pass is poss-. Shoot is bishop basket is bus skit. If you had the opportunity to watch the Pacers play you would have also heard them using. Persian to trash talk their opponents one time upon scoring a three pointer. The Teams Point Guard to his opponent and screamed AAH Matt, which means your aunt. Asked why the term your aunt is an insult Johnson said, it's like yelling your Momma but mother jokes are a big taboo in Iran. So we make fun of your aunt. Johnson has chosen to stay in the bubble during the finals and offer his course to the Lakers and heat players. So they too can cuss each other out in Persian and Iranian player taking advantage of the isolation to give Farsi lessons to his surprisingly enthusiastic colleagues inside the bubble your next hoop scoop comes from Jesse Klein. There are two things it's hard to get in the NBA. Corona virus and a good cup of coffee. So. The enterprising star for the Miami Heat Jimmy Butler has started selling coffee out of his hotel room in a business. He calls big face coffey. Butler who had six foot seven is considered. VENTI has an unorthodox business plan. A large coffee is twenty dollars. A small coffee is twenty dollars to small coffees, fifty dollars. The high confusing prices gave the heat athletic trainer Brandon Gilliam in opening. He started selling coffee out of his room at five dollars a COP under the name little face coffey. It should be pointed out that five dollars is still ridiculous amount to pay for a cup of coffee especially when the guy making your coffee's other job touching groins all day. Little face started posting reviews on his door, all of which are made up big face had cups, t-shirts, hats made with his own personal logo, what a fun rivalry or quite possibly or witnessing what happens when you lock grown men in isolation for several weeks and they slowly go mad. But Hey, at least they're not murdering. In the end it's all just good for team spirit. As Butler says, quote, we got a little competition, but it's all fun and Games. Now, I make way more money than he does over fees you should know that. An NBA star starts selling coffee for Twenty Bucks a cup out of his hotel room leading to a price war. Your last story of a bubble diversion comes from Brian Babylon. In the early days of the NBA bubble of few players got into serious trouble for escaping to a club and that ended any opportunity to have any fun at all. Then on a Saturday night in late August players heard a thump thump thump of dance music coming from the hotel lobby those who came down found a very tall man in a white tracksuit and a marshmallow mask who called himself, DJ. Carmelo playing some serious beats on a very expensive sound system. Mosa. The dance remix were all made of basketball court sounds the squeak of sneakers on hardwood the clink of balls hitting the rim and even players cursing. It's not a club, but it's not bad said James. Harden in it sounds like basketball practice which makes up the fact that there are no women to dance with. The identity of DJ car smell was unknown. But as one coach said, he said tall how many people could it be? Oh. Yeah. Lots of them. All right. These are your choices of a story of players amusing themselves inside the N. B. Bubble is it from Mazda Job Ronnie. A Iranian player teaching anybody who wants to learn Farsi. So they can trash talk from Jesse Klein one of the biggest stars of the League starting coffee business out of his hotel room selling it for twenty dollars a cup or from Brian Babylon the mysterious Dj Karsh Melo who plays dance mixes of sound from the Basketball Court Like I said I've been watching lots of. Basketball in the bubble and I've been following it as well. So I'm going to have to go with very very expensive cups of coffee from Jimmy. Butler. Yeah. Well, they could afford it I. Give you that Alright you've chosen Jesse story of the coffee shop wars in the bubble to bring you the correct answer we spoke to a journalist who has been following the real story in the bubble Jimmy Butler selling coffee in the NBA is amazing. Imagine your Barista charge you twenty dollars for a cup after they just dropped forty points on. Mandy Buffington sports writer for Fox twenty-six ESPN's undefeated talking about the coffee war in the bubble congratulations Michael you got it right or practice. Voice of your choice on your voicemail congratulations oh. Yes Bill. Kurtis. Coming at you. Thank you. Tipped your choice, but I can't blame you. I hope he doesn't build me. Sir. Thanks so much plan my take care. Thank you. Fill up brings back sweet memories. Heard you say, suge. Just. That's all it took. and. Now, the game where we asked very respected people to knock themselves down a peg dame Karen Pierce of great. Britain is one of the world's most accomplished diplomats she has served around the world, and now she's gracing the US with her measured presence as ambassador to the United States. I should say, by the way we recorded this interview before the news, the president's diagnosis. Dame Karen Pierce, welcome to wait wait don't tell. It's a pleasure to have you. You have been on the job not quite a year is that right and less than that I came in March and walked straight into lockdown asked actually I've been out and about much in Washington. So your your impression of America. Then it's about four conjoined rooms and not very well populated after all likely me this is the time I've sent diplomatic the in. America. twice in New York and this is my second time in Washington. So I think that helps now it does it does Abba question go ahead Brian I've always wanted to now I guess this was a lethal weapon movie. This guy was saying you can't touch me I have diplomatic immunity what is that real and of so what can you get away with as a diplomat? I. Need to say we are very respectful at the laws in all the countries we serve and including in the United States Mary cat, right. So how many people have you killed? I'm in good civilian and we obey the law not not even a little temptation like twenty items in the twelve under less line just just just a flex, the muscle a little nothing you know. All right question. Are there any world leaders that we see depicted in one way but in reality they are actually very different like like is there anybody that surprise you when you met them? You Go whoa maybe a good way. I used to work a lot on the Balkans and I was always surprised dignity given the terrible things they did to each other in the thousand ninety s but I was always surprised when you met the MS individuals no matter which ethnicity they came from they were the so two people You could easily go to a party with and sing songs with all right. You've just raised an interesting question. So you were talking about your service in the Balkans, which is a byword for vicious internecine civil war. Let's not pick on Mr Wallace if you were the moderator at the next presidential debate, do you think you could handle it using your lifetime of diplomatic skills? Oh, I wouldn't seem. generalists like like Chris Foley's is there a way? That you can basically tell a powerful arrogant person to their face to stop behaving that way in way that. Will. Be Heard and here I'm asking for a nation. Asking for a friend who is also a nation we had. When you're the president of the Security Council, you actually control the speaking buttons said, that's great help or wait a minute you actually you're sitting there when you're sitting in the president's seat, then you can actually turn people off if you like, yes you can are there any electric shock collars that you can or in the seats that you might be able to use and if so can we borrow them? I. Think you actually don't need anything other than the power that. I that's that's that's a wonderful power to have. You also had the time to go viral in a video about making a proper cup of tea if I'm not mistaken. Yes that's absolutely right. Though is in the making ninety living in the UK who puts on Social Media House make. In Microwave? It may be difficult to combat your audience. Why how dreadful that is. Refreshing. Point of view. Minute she felt particularly strongly about it. So. They asked if I would from tap. This little twitter video and we had them you know clips of a paratrooper. Making. What we call a brew out in the woods somewhere with hardly any equipment we had someone in a jet plane We had someone else on the ship the whole point being that wherever they were, they were not using microwave. Right. Triumph fish and chips. Next is an electric kettle. Okay. Was that countered as it need to be over fire? No No, you may use. You may use an electric kettle. Okay. But egrets will. Almost ted themselves part on whether you put the milk in I into a Catholic or you put the milk in law. Well, you I. You are Numb I have been. So politely yelled at by my British friends about T- yet. So, if someone gives you a cup of microwave T W- to spit it out like how dare you give me this microwave water is, can you tell microwave water from boiled water? That's what caused the war of Eighteen Twelve Ryan not sure you knew that. Yes something I think you can tell I wouldn't spit out 'cause that will. But I might find a reason to link. Right Ma. Well Dame, Karen it is an absolute joy to speak to you, but we have to put you through the paces. We've asked you here to play a game we're calling. I like by ambassadors to go room room. So you are, of course, an ambassador by trade and training, but we were wondering what do you know about the AMC ambassador one of the finest low end luxury American automobiles of the nineteen fifties and sixties. So we're going to ask you three questions about the classic car get two out of three right you'll win. A Prize for one of our listeners, the voice of their choice and their voicemail bill who is embassador appears playing for Sam, Vixen of Orlando. Florida. Here's your first question. The ambassador was sold as a more affordable luxury car. So luxurious that the one thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight ambassador was the only one of its competitors to offer what is a standard feature. A Ashtrays for the whole family be five wheels for that extra wheel feeling or see fur-lined breaks. Oh please tell me it on breaks. Now do you want me to tell you that it is for lined breaks or are you asserting that it is in fact for breaks? Now I. Think it's five wheels. Wheels for that extra wheel feeling knows actually ash trays for the whole family. To in the back. It was a different time ambassador. What can we say tumor chances? Here's your next question. Now the car line had its share of problems through the years. Why did consumer reports Pan the thousand nine, hundred, Sixty, seven ambassador was at a the ambassador convertible model was just a regular car with the roof ripped off be if you hit the brakes too hard of the car would spill gasoline all over the place or see the glove compartment was so big people would actually lose their gloves in its depths. I think. The limits of my knowledge of of costs yeah. I'm going to go for the first one the first one that the when they sold the ambassador convertible, it was just a regular ambassador car that they just ripped the roof off and sold it as a convertible. Yes. I'm sure it's. It is in fact wrong. The answer was the second one. You hit the brakes too hard. The gasoline would slosh all over the inside and outside of the car because they didn't make the gas tank to secure. All right. You still have fomer chance ambassador. I'm sure you'll get this one now Tom Elliott who is the CO host of NPR's famous show car talk often talked in the show about his beloved sleek black beauty nine, hundred, sixty, six, ambassador convertible. What were the circumstances under which he parted with a he sold it after knocking over his mailbox while backing it out of the driveway for the eighth time. Be when he was out to lunch one day, his brother and Co host Ray Mali, took it to the crusher or see he forgot where he parked it and never saw it again the breath it's okay to the crash. That is exactly right. That's what happened. Car Talk Fans obviously would have guessed that anyway ray the guy who got rid of the car said it was so rusted that it couldn't even cast a shadow by that time and Tom The guy who owned it in presumably loved it didn't even notice it was gone for six months.
