"As Dave from cheap wine, fighter dot com and today we got another shorter podcast. This one's going to be a companion podcast for a a wine. We put on review on this cheap wine finder dot com website, and this one is for the two thousand seventeen Susannah Balbo creo Toronto's from Argentina. Susannah Babo is a rockstar winemaker. She was just voted last year when the top ten most influential influential women in wine, and she makes great line she's really, really good. And she has several different labels and I'll go up, all different prices in this one, I think I found for a little bit under ten dollars not a lot under ten dollars but a little bit. So it's not always she makes the big expensive wine. She's making the everyday forcible wines. And that's what this Creoles Toronto's is Toronto's is a grape that. Is related to a couple other grapes. I think read somewhere with must get Alexandria, which is like one of the oldest grapes, in the world goes away back. But not really all that closely related to anything. So it's a great, but it's really only found in Argentina, and she's an Argentinian wine maker, so in Argentinian, grape Arseny, winemakers guy nobod- good thing here and let me take a little bit of a sip because it's a good wine. Let me drink some. Kind of a funny why? Because the nose of it. Makes you think of Scotto or something when those sweeter wines, gives you that you got those really pungent knows. And he got candy things going on your, your thinking. Okay. This is going to be a little sweet in you taste, and it's bone dry. But some of the flavors are those flavors from the sweeter, wines, only this time. They're, they're not sweet. So it's a little bit of a. Little bit of a head beyond that fake here. Like, oh, I think it's going to be. Nope. It isn't. So it's kind of that's kind of cool. And if you're any white wine rut, were all your drinking is Chardonnay Pinot grease, yo Savion block. Maybe a little Riesling over and over and over again in your you know, you're not that enthused anymore. You change of pace might be Toronto's. I mean this is seriously. Good wine. Susannah, bulb makes really good wines. These vineyards. Are we up in the mountains way up others from two different places ones in yuko valley in does? That's in the middle at swirl lot of. A lot of your mall, Bax come from and the other one's up in this salt or region in both of these. Vineyards are way up there in the foothills, I think like fifty six hundred feet above sea level. And one of the things about that is above the area where any pest that plague grape vines and vineyards are there any diseases in the soil are gone. That's up there where things are pretty pristine, and you get intense sunlight. So the growing region is. Lot of some Nike. That's up the hills. It gets really cold at night, the grapes during the day he'd up, and they're working, like crazy night against cold. They stop you know, a set cycle that's really good for grapes. And this is what this has. And an expensive ten dollar wine from a from a rockstar winemaker, and that's kind of a cool thing. And it's a change of pace away. It's going to have different flavors. It's very dry, but there's going to be like, a different tropical things peaches and lemon shift, fine and amid pal, there's going to be a little bit of tangerine, and even some cash shoe, salty cashew towards the end. This got some flavors has got some body to, to. I was thinking that, you know, maybe this was going to be a taste of summer glass, wine, but Scott little more body a little more intensity and flavor going on. I think summertime afternoon though you can pick your own for that. But this is definitely when the sun goes down, and you're looking for a white wine, the pull this out because it's got something going on. It's got this pungent knows and these very definite flavors. I mean, nothing crazy. But it's not the same old, same old either, which is really kind of appealing, and let me have one more sip before I go. Yeah. Nice acidity comes through got length to flavors are familiar, but they're not the same old, same old cities. Got you. Smack your lips. I love when you smack your lips because it means you're gonna take another sip. And it's not what you normally drink. If you're getting tired of Chardonnays getting tired of salvio and blank, you know, too much of a good thing does get old after while Toronto's will Brock your word a little world a little bit. It's kind of good, and that's it for me. I'm digging Toronto's Susannah ball Bom anytime you can get a rockstar winemaker making ten buck- wines, drink it. And that's it for me to keep it cheap and till the next time. And there's always a next time bye bye.

I was really big fan of <hes> old television classic television and the honeymooners that kind of thing yes. I'm trying to think of any other show. Show of shows don't know that one that the show show shows with shows firefly your show not my personal show show which I consider that the show is your show of all shows. That's the one that catapulted you'd through the roof stardom stardom stratosphere stars the we see up there on our movies and T._v.. Screens yes yes a household name. In my household certainly brilliant. We always talk about you. The Intel intelligent obviously of households across this country connoisseurs but yeah old older old television yeah I used to go to the radio of television and radio the Museum of Radio and television. It was the Museum of Radio and Radio Look. We got a lot of radios so many of them. Can I see any commercial sorry wrong. Sorry no and you can listen to something on that aradio right over there or that other radio. They're both right there in the title. What do you have in static between stations I yes so I used to go there and listen?

Yes hey founded very much. He was actually a father of like thick vic. Something really absolutely children U.. Adding Win had sex at least six times lay that have predicted that he wore a little hat a lot of time he was in Vaudeville. When you say a little hat? What do you mean for his head news very small it was it was clown fat to look like a tiny boat upon the tip of his crown or something with more like a little fluff of whipped cream with something dollop of cream honest dollop of cream? If you just slide off the top and he he he was one of the first people have a T._v.. Show if not the first comedy shows variety show he did all of the sketches that he had built up in his writing over the years in Vaudeville over the many years ran out of material after your one and was off the air people like me. I had to show for five years. I've probably ran out of my material episode one. I hired people to write me material. That was the lesson everyone learned after what happened. Wait a minute. I'm out. That's a lifetime of work. Oh now why do I do may as well quit. He did voice.

He's in like a lot of the stuff and Edwin was is in a lot of that stuff. He passed away. They're like we still need that and win magic so they call you say call somebody else and they cast somebody else to reading and then that person fell out right at the last minute fell out when you say fell out.

Let's get his chest open Jaaz EPI pen. That's all I need. <hes> it is a man named Richardson Green in two thousand and four was murdered murdered murdered or suicide did did one or the other one of those two thing he was not he was either killed by a human being <hes> killed by himself health. He was killed by God however there's there is no no no he was murdered his fingers and all sorts of different pies down here on earth so he may have influenced the murderer but he gherat it. He was Karatas. Oh my God that's hard to do yourself. There's the whole rub but the <hes> but the official sort of like we think it was a suicide but there's all of these things around him. It's like how could it have been a suicide. There's all of these things surrounding to- make any sense that heats Grad with bootlace. He doesn't even own bootlace bootlace. Yes doesn't own BOOT so he only has slip on loafers at home did now. Did they ever find a receipt where it was like he you know it was from. I don't L. D. W.. What does that shoe store w something are d._W._i.? Yes and and it was for boots and he wrote on the receipt I through the boots away but kept the laces just in case I buy different in boot someday. There was never a clue like that. There might have been but the police boxed it up so so thoroughly they might have put a wad of chewing gum in there and tossed it away. That's how bad they were and what's also right before he's dead. He was telling his friends. Someone is trying to kill me. This is a clue huge clue. Someone's trying to kill me. Here's three phone numbers. There's all of this stuff out there. There was there was there was an auction going on that he was trying to stop for. They were auctioning signing off all of these he was trying to win the auction by winning or he was trying to get a called stop because somebody tampered with <hes> the will of the daughter of Sir Arthur CONAN doyle who wrote Sherlock Holmes and <hes> she was these. Distant relatives were auctioning off all of these writings that we're going to go into private hands and they were supposed to go to the British library and this guy is a real sherlock Holmes head. Oh He's the hugest fan there is <hes> is <hes> he's a scholar he is. He's the King Nerd doesn't cause play as him or he does so easy. He wanders around the house or I'm sure he had over forty thousand <hes> books albums different Sherlock Holmes his library just he added yet forty twenty thousand pieces. He's in his library. Yes a memorabilia surrounding sherlock amazing. He had live about thirty thousand so I know that that's I mean that's pretty good judge. I have a good idea it's just a little bit is larger the mind yeah his his flats and then he had taken over the flat next to that one in the one next to that one okay Oh okay so you have three flats and money wow yeah. How's he have so much money he was from a rich? Oh Yeah I gotta get into one of those. It's it's it seems to work out until garate. Oh yeah there's a date Moore you have the more people want although no one stole anything out of his apartment after his murder and the door was locked from the inside what so there's all of these great clues and <hes> you you follow his life in two thousand four so the last three months of his life and it also goes back to the nineteenth century CONAN doyle went CONAN doyle decides to Stop Stop Writing Sherlock Holmes he he hated Sherlock Holmes he did because <hes> it became an albatross around his neck. Yes his most famous character. He wanted to do different things. Maybe write about horses or you know Unicorn Obscure British history. Yes that's toyland sentimental poetry. He wanted to be taken seriously and no one gave a damn about those writing yeah. You and I don't care about those. We like Sherlock Holmes. I like Solas mental history. I like that I like the mash up of those two right. Yes Sherlock Holmes when you say sentimental history exactly what you mean by sentimental history I go history. The people are fond of or back upon with with a hazy remembrance of like Oh those were the days were they <music>. They were yes they were slaves sure but nucle- technically those were the good old day lemonade. Oh my God not to chart and not sweet so so I'm presuming this is in England because you said the word flat three and occasionally lapsing into it accent that I can only presume is sort of English Calvin extreme three extra. What what character do you play? Do you play. I was GONNA say Tischler but his name is not in the actual the second time you use the word Ticha yes I love it. I you know a lot of people say hey ah yes do. Do you play this guy who was garage. Did I do okay and I played Sherlock Holmes. Oh do roll roll okay and everyone in the play plays multiple roles okay so the guy like you and ice age. Yes Wow yes but no one and then everyone is going to be in the second one but just for one line and then you may or may not in the back for the fourth okay and then. I don't know what they did number five yeah so <hes> like <hes> so you're in it until the end of the week yes Sunday I believe is your your last show so you have <hes>. How many do you do a week eight or so? We do eight eight a week so I'm presuming. That's a look if I'm guessing say Tuesday night a Wednesday matinee no. That's the Broadway schedule okay. What are you answer Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday matinee Saturday nights Sunday matinee Sunday night okay okay because people here in L. A.? They we work hard. We play hard on the weekends. We like to go see plays about Sherlock Holmes. They like to Brunch also. There's the good brunch crowd at the Geffen. You live in in Los Angeles. What's your brunch spot? I have a theory on Brunch do my theory. Is You wanNA find a place. That is good enough where you're like yeah that was fine but bad enough that there's no line yeah you know like all the good places have the massive lines and you can't get into him so it's got to be bad. It's got to be like not very good but it's got to be just good enough that you're like yeah. I enjoyed that. I guess I don't know I maybe I wouldn't go back. That's very definite way to do it more. You could get super early in like just be there with the church crowd yeah that's true. The church choir goes to branch before church. Is it even Brunch at that point. That's now I found that I was a waiter of course for many many years <hes> ninth on a decade really. Where did you wait tables? Eh You seem like an ethics guy. Now I was in New York. I was a Harry's Burrito. Oh areas burrito yeah. That was my second choice. I was slinging. I see that Tacos <hes> but I I remember when I was in Marie Calendar's out there in Whittier California. <hes> the church crowd would come in around twelve thirty on Sundays every single week right after church right there sloth and then they would all wanna be there like they would say twenty four. I table for twenty-five please. No we don't ever reservation separate checks. Please righteousness gluttony. What are the other four murder moisture? At least. That's a major one especially especially. If it gets into your house well yeah because the would that's the thing it'll take it down. So what is your spot. Do you have a spot. Maybe you don't want to reveal it. A brunch spot at home you eat at home there. That's the which is actually exactly what you describe not so good the right anybody else wants to eat there you ever open it up to your friends. I know you're friendly with his agent of yours. Hey Wanna come by house on Sunday. She would go has she ever though we are going Hiking in Zion her husband and my wife and we'd like couples we're going repelling like telling repel repel before indoors okay but never outdoors never a whole different ballgame out there. Have you done this. I have actually if you you can believe it. I leaving right traps when I was fifteen years older so and it was very very frightening thunderbolt enlightening and just just trusting you know the people that have the have your life in their hands sort of frightening but then again you know I once went to Costa Rica and I did that whole like where you hang up the zip line thing just over like a giant chasm and I said to the Geigo how along you've been working here ten years and five days a week. I said how many accidents have been none. That just made me feel better. It's like these been here five days a week ten years no accidents. Why am I going to be the first right?

They let me in the front. You're right of course yeah I go up straight up the elevator from the parking garage. So that's how I like to do so this play goes until the end of the week. People can still get tickets. People can fly into L. A. to see this as far as your concern you don't care right. I think they should Ma.

If any of your listeners have a nice firm Gotcha but you know our okay all right I got during the break. We'll take care of. This is a real ice age three. You know what I mean. Well you have to freeze the sample that makes sense now. Okay so you have a new business I do. I opened up. It's just down the street. I've opened up a New York close to home. Yes okay the Dream Yeah you. You know walk to work. Oh of course yeah I'm opening up a brick and mortar store. Oh One yeah I'm going old school in this one nine. You're not selling brick and mortar are you. I wish that's a rough business to get into. That's tough. Yes and it's very heavy too heavy yeah. I don't want to transport all those bricks or more than a lot of people don't think about that when they get into that business how heavy the stuff can be. That's true you know I it's not even you know it's just it's a simple apple business and I'm. I'm really taking back to the simple or times. Okay okay this when you say the Simpler Times. Do you mean sentimental history or do I do. It does have something to do sentimental history think about your dad. Okay You my dad specifically. Everyone should think about my Alan D. Mind Thinking about my dad. Do you WanNa see a picture of it's harder for me to not so much. Let me try to find a picture okay here. You Go picture awfully Nice Looking Man Yeah I see let me ask you dad like nuts. Let's say yes please because this is for the business. I already ruined one of my businesses. I Ruin Your Business by giving you a platform. Talk about as well okay. Yes as I recall. He's eating nuts okay well then he would love my store. What is your store not style Java nuts dowager? We're selling old fashioned nuts. The kind used to remember your dad good evening. I don't know what exactly you mean. Old fashioned nuts nuts that are no longer growing or today's not so just they're different than they used to be. Null the chemicals and it's just different. Don't you crave the nuts of yesteryear. I don't know I created the nuts. I used to remember forgotten but I remember them again. OUR MAMMOTH SALGA yes. That's what makes them. What are the chemicals come into play here with nuts? I don't deserve it if -servative okay one hundred percent preservative free old fashioned nuts like your dad used to eat. Oh okay yeah do they because they don't have preservatives in them. Do they tend to get stale very quickly. You've gotta buy them within a day. You got to buy them within a day winning store. Yes if a small store and we've got a lot of turnover sure you're just thrown out nuts every day. I would imagine I mean I mean this is going to help with the fecal sample. I think they're all tied into each other somehow right yeah. I did have a problem so I've put up the sign yesterday. Oh congratulations thank you. What's the sign is? Does it just have the net style. Asia massage assured dad you steed okay. That's the tagline yes and there's already been a lot of graffiti on the store. Oh on the on the sign or on the everywhere your dad eats nuts shots and these nuts fitch and all no. I don't know what to do Scott. Do I open the grand. Opening Bharti was supposed to be tonight. No this is this is quite a conundrum. What would sherlock Holmes? Oh my goodness I need him. Jesse tracked down the perpetrators the culprits and all of those sorts of things. Who Do you think is doing you? Do you think the local tufts or I can only assume youth because they don't understand old nuts. Do you know what I mean. They all the only no one type of noodle no the reference to the older nuts that don't have preservatives. They just think millennials. They don't have any nut style right. Yes that the name I came up with. Eh It works it works. You know it's a pun is it. I I think it's a play on we're it's fun. It is fun whatever it is yeah. So what do we do both these youth and this opening party. I would say your I would be maybe to wash off. The graffiti is have you tried that at this point using permanent markers here using markers yes tagging oh no spray paint just permanent markers so that's my first problem the second problem you have more one problem. That's a huge one big nut shipments coming in today and I have to sell them today. We'll your grand opening do I. This is the question it's so hard being a business owner it really I still have up to two thousand in cards that say I eat your Jisr. I would say that you you probably can get rid of those. I mean I don't know there's going to be any call for those in any of your future endeavors about that I don't know can you get maybe there's some sort of a local boys club boys and Girls Club of America who had preferred to do some sort of community service in wash off or repaint assign or something some of the yes and good us yeah I had youth. I think there's a good youth hopefully <music>. Hopefully I just I just WanNa find people who appreciate old fashioned nuts as much as I do. You know what I mean. The nuts your your father U._C.'s remember did you did your father used eight nuts. No He's deathly allergic. Oh Yeah then why did you get into. This seems like you have no nuts. deljo yourself. Some may say that everyone would say that based on the fact doesn't that mean I want more net style. You know what I mean zero exactly I guess you could use a little more up to one hundred percents war. Everybody could use a little nuts dow works it just work. Did you just come up with the name or did you mispronounce nostalgia one day and then you back into the business that way you got it back into your business ideas. That's what I always say. I teach glass on businesses and I say I step back in this class. Well I was trying to digit nuts. Daljit the nuts your father used but it turns out I don't. I don't think I'm going to open the why not I mean look. This may help the business this podcast. Oh no I mean the you know. No no presses bad press right is that the saying all press is good press. No Pres- remember which one it is whatever it is. I mean it's it's. I'm sure that someone may write an article about this problem or at least you'll pop up in the crime blotter in the local papers okay I. I was gonNA bring some of the nuts to sample share with you guys. That would have been something good to do yeah. It's just the shipments coming in later and I know this bag gaskin sometimes go on awhile and I'm worried the nuts would lose their freshness so you wanted okay. You wanted to schedule it around win the nuts let's would actually be delivered. They tried okay but it got delayed. Apparently your podcast won't move for my nuts. You know and I mean why now when you say you know what I mean. You're waggling your eyebrows up and down like it's the suggestive thing you're saying. Yes you know what I mean. I it seems to me like you got into the business knowing that people would think it was sort of a double entendre double on what the Double Entendre Allen Dino the definition of double entendre. It's <hes> it's something that has a double meaning. Yes that's the base a more benign meaning like nuts. Talca your old nuts that your dad add used to put in his mouth. That's better than what I have on the sign. Let me go the sign people so that has a purely innocent meaning in one respect to a lot of us who are connoisseurs yes but to <hes> these youths who have dirty minds that are filled with just filth they see that and they look at it in the other meaning meaning that your your father used to ingest testicles. Oh Oh my God with you haven't realized what why they were serves. I've made another terrible mistake. How much of your money did you put into this business? All of it all of it I saw I sued all the people whose Jr is made me sick okay. Did you get any money. Unfortunately no I spent a lot of money on legal fees that one okay so you're out a little bit of money there but my family money we were discussing passing an earlier which is not much is simple two million dollars. What is your family do well? They are also entrepreneurs. Oh Okay yes. The Lisa family is what have they done. Do you know what a bandaid is. I think I don't want to speak for Alan. Mandate is several on right there. It's a it's a brand name for a type of bandage disposable it. He's abandoned and then there's something called an Al.. We sticker I don. I'm less familiar so Lisa family created Oh okay yes less popular for sure always sticker yes yes. That's two million in dollars worth of sticks. They're now. They know the word well. I guess I yeah technically if he technically I hate to say this word but I'll try to say the technical word but a penis it could be considered now we sticker said before to you. Regarding the Bruce Willis the color of night. That's what I'm thinking. Oh yes. He shows his always sticker. I remember right yeah and that was your alley sticker. Yes yes great.

Okay urging people to get hypnotherapy remember their Dad uh-huh repressed father nut memories right. That's maybe not such a great idea to try to get to dredge some of those memories time. I have a bad idea all right. We need to get to our next guest. He is a a this is incredible and artists and say I have so many <hes> questions about sandwiches including the aforementioned. Is it always to pieces of bread because sometimes it's three you know in a club but it can't be one can't it. I don't know we'll find out <hes> please welcome P._D.. Tweety yes hello P._d.. Tweety how you doing great this is Allen Mary Lisa Hello Mary Lee's A._P.. Hey how we doing we're doing. I said I'm doing great. Okay good. You guys got to try one of my new sandwiches. Do you have them here. I didn't bring any that's a mistake. I Apologize. I smelling because I smell. I thought I smelled some. Oh I have my bag with me my bag. My bag keeps a lot of stench. What is in your bags like a hot bag one of those pizza bags Oh okay I didn't have the money for one of those good ones so it just thick burlap really stops up the sent? Oh I see so you've been transporting sandwiches for a matter of months. Maybe it's out of the bag you know I'm making great new sandwiches and my location in his right on the one on one freeway on the one on one for on the one on one. Would you must mean like on the one to one in coin guy just off if you take the <hes> the offramp or something just above the offramp on the freeway on the actual box box one thirty two is where I set up my sandwiches okay so I don't know that that's a drive through the ultimate drive there. I don't think you can stop to pay well between five four and seven you can get walkup service officer because it's traffic time so that's my big. That's my big hours right. Those are peak hours for peak and sometimes morning. I'll make breakfast sandwiches aw that's between four and seven not as popular but in foreign seven A._M.. Yes yes this is not a bad idea. Come to think of it. I mean how many times have I been stuck on the freeway and traffic trying to get to Sony or something the furthest is place on earth and just thinking man. I didn't have time for breakfast but I'm going to be lates. You gotta try one of my Sony Marsk ponies what is in this. It's a Sony Marsk Caponi. It's a sweet sandwich that you're taking across the the ten to culver city where nobody wants to go okay because you're miserable drive and all the way West but you gotta have a sweet treat to go so it's a Marsk Caponi Sony Sandwich when you say sweet how sweeter re talking to sweet really this week. It goes there sweetened savory. There's an ex show Scott. No save absolutely no saver one hundred percents sweet bread which it is to okay great. It's those sugar way I the pink ones Oh those are nasty right yeah and then you put a little Mars caponi cheese in the middle also too sweet and Shell it if you think it's too sweet well. That's artisan. Sandwiches are like sandwiches. You would want to eat but they're weird. I seeing the definition thank you so it's so if you take normal sanders like Turkey sandwich the Allenwood make at home because he's making a lot of food at home yet. I hear no one coming by like what. Typical Sandwich Day Your House Sandwich Day would be P._B.. And J. Really I like B._B._N.. J. So what what ingredients do you use. I I use a jif peanut butter. Okay I use a those are like not sitting there. There's nothing there yet but not the kinds that I think I remember my dad eating cool. Okay anyways go on a nice jif peanut butter on a not a great bread not a great bread correct above wonder but <hes> some kind of a white bread. Yes very it has to be on my bread and then <hes> jelly from <hes> like a jelly. Yeah we have an artisan listen take on a P._B._S.. J Two pieces of eight and a half by eleven printer paper instead of white bread. It's White Berry you know 'cause it's like it but it's different I know and then it's blood because blood is read like Jam Cam and then there's one more ingredient that I forgot about which is the peanut butter and artists and take on that one is that it's butter from the ground butter from the when you say butter from the ground I don't I know what you're probably something else though a lot and ground butter what is where do you find ground butter. Where do you find ground butter? It's okay so you don't eat a lot and you don't eat much. I butter is when you go to a diner prefer preferably greasy spoon. Suck Mike that and you go in the kitchen in you say hey look over. Eh all the chefs. Look One way and you run your hand along the floor. That is hopefully grout. Okay hopefully hopefully was it could also be a mix of many other things yes but that's still ground butter. Oh I think from the ground in the kitchen is ground buddist so so then why are you hoping so hard ground butter because sometimes never not kitchen butter and he got it. So how often are you making this pilgrimage to these greasy spoons to trick vis chefs into looking pretty pretty NAFTA. I use ground butter and a lot of my recipes. You know you go to a place and they sort of have a signature thing. They put on everything a sunflower truck caviar. I'm aggressive types of restaurants. I eat at very nice. Thank you brag place. Sometimes you ever in traffic. I definitely am in traffic quite often do you. What are your other types of sandwiches like a versions everything we got you know the Croak Monsur sure Oh of course that is <hes>? I believe a ham sandwich classic French Ham so it's been grilled on both sides gaunt yes. He's in their sugar on top. Something like that are crowder sugar. Yeah Arcaro monster is it's a dead bird that had croaked Oh. Is that a double entendre. I it is just a Hominem. I'm not not sure yes and it's on a stick. It's on a stick. That's the Croak as had been fried <hes> D._O._D.. You stuck it with the stick and you yes so when you're on the freeway. A lot of people are flying by and they hit a bird heard you say what are we just GonNa. Let that go at my restaurant. We use the whole buffalo or bird as it were waist now. Why not exactly okay say he is your Croak Monster and I just put a stick in a bird? I pass it off to someone who's going. Okay <music> sometimes a little ground butter of course there. How much do you sell a bird on a stick for your Croak? Four depends how big the bird is the crow. Oh you market price. I'd do it by the pound. It's yeah it's market price Christ. You never really no you know because we're artists in its market price. I'll call so like a large crow might be twelve thirteen dollars sure if it's just the finch something like that. Maybe an appetizer right couple of dollars all right interesting. How often are people enjoying the sandwiches asking for their money back? You know the two sides of the coin well. There's not a lot of repeat business. I don't think once you get your kind of stuck going one way which is part of the business yeah no refunds get off on offramp and circle back that he wants to do that. That's right because you know sometimes you run out of ingredients and you just have to make. Do you like honestly this. One isn't even a sandwich. This is not even a sandwich like the it sounds like the crooked sewer is just a stick Dick. I don't think the snow that was a sandwich. How is that a say in worse? Sometimes we run out of birds. Oh okay you ever had an old shoe open face. I guess not I mean I've had a tongue sandwich but yes. That's not the kind of tongue that you're talking about to know that is funny though I really with that yeah that's yeah I'd love to consult for you. Oh that'd be great. I need more ideas. Yes sounds like you've had about three. Yes yes the Senate. You may have run out. That's we got a classic P.. B. J. J. Sony Murska boaty here and then you've got bone-dry on ideas yes well. I've been working for ten years. I have to sell you know that happens yeah so that's the business good luck with him. I think it's a terrible idea. I think that you'll be out of money unless you have two million dollars. Your parents is expensive of in L._A.. Renting will I'm not that's the that's why I'm on the one on one the one place where people know this free rent on the freeway. That's why they call it the freeway exactly yeah EXAC now if it were a toll road. Maybe you'd have to keep putting money in or something I know I'm not going down to the seventy three or whatever yeah there to Jamboree road down there. No thank you we all know that we all have the same frame of reference regarding that fact that's right. That's right that's right so I was thinking about a couple of other sandwiches. I'm thinking where our people going when they're in traffic there usually going to work or they're going home. I <hes> I guess going to lunch sometimes the lunch. Hopefully that's what somehow shopping shopping a lot in L._A.. That's everybody's just going shopping when you're out there on the freeway and it's bumper to bumper traffic everyone's going to shop for coming from coming from target coming from shopping hoping hoping for their everyone's hungry for nuts. I hope all the L._A.. Traffic is going to nuts dodger. That's what I'm hoping I really feel deep connection with you as a fellow business owner absolutely both and food service I love you to try my father's nuts one of these times that'd be great. Put It on a sandwich. Oh that's interesting Coporo. Oh Co pro. Yes cooperative professionals. Yes sandwich with your father's nuts on them. Yeah remember this one. That's what we'll call it. Oh remember this. One is what you call it. That's all sandwich because it's nut style jokes and what would be on this you. You'd have to put your artisan spin on it. Of course yes well. I'd get some of these old nuts. It's their new old nuts. Though you WANNA make sure to be clear yeah they're new old nuts. They will be old old nuts within twenty four hours. The people have to eat them quickly. I'll remind them they don't have to eat them quickly as in like shove a lot in their mouth at a time it's beneficial if you do because the clock is ticking yes so what are we call sandwich again and nuts to remember a nuts to remember. That's great so this sandwich even remember the names of your own sandwiches thirty seconds after my name is rough because of all the traffic swiping defining cars and a few human just a hypnotic sort of vibration and let me be honest. I think the ground butter is starting negative starting to affect man just the fooling these chefs into into looking. I mean you have to have a lot of guilt about that. No I'm guilt free oh you. I'm guilt free says it right on our Menu Guilt Free Antibiotic Free Shame Free Same Mitch's. Wow so when you say you're guilt for you mean like you don't care yeah exactly. I don't care about anybody else Alam. Anything called a sandwich and Tom to keep moving. Okay so what what is going to be in this nuts to remember so this is the paper bag that the nuts are filled with right right. You take the nuts UTAH. Som was also the essence we need is the essence of nut and then the customer is supposed to bring hair clippings from their father. Okay put it in the bag. Okay how many ground butter how many people are going to have hair clippings from their father when they're traveling I you do oh. We'll let so I remember him fondly eating nuts and then they beg of hair I have from him. Of course I mean I wear some of my fathers hair clippings connected. I've noticed you're you're the top of your head. It's very it's it's very jagged. I was GonNa say you had a bad haircut but it looks like the top is long. The top is long the back of short sure yeah yeah because the top is diverse mullet the exactly rest in peace. He was a hair metal guy. Your father was what was the fan just a fan of his fan devoted his whole lifestyle to hair metal but just the fan really really yeah his whole lifestyle so he would what does that entail cut off shirts long hair software right at the bottom midrift major to her tits up though is covering my shirt from that that was my nickname name tits up really liked to wear t shirts and when he passed is that headstone he went to south when tits but thank God he cut his hair.

Beyond Meat boots its meat-focused investor, Comcast (shockingly) hits record high, and one startups worst 1st week

"The. Strat. This is snacks daily. It is Monday, April twenty ninth. And this is the best one yet by far the best next daily for a very special. I'm here with my buddy, Nick in Miami International Airport year, literally gate, what is this e four d twelve whatever terminal this is live for Miami. Because we are on the way to my bachelor. Exactly, right. We got off the Red Eye jacks cut his sash on hold on one. Second. Jack is TR is a little off center over here covered in wrinkles because I was leaning against the aisles well on the way to key west. But you know, we still put together on the flight three fantastic stories, you tell you what we're starting lease meet this is a plant based meat startup. It is about to. But it just ended this really awkward relationship with Tyson Foods strategic move to go meatless beyond me. I'm excited to cover that one. Second story is Comcast this is an old school cable TV company, it should be suffering in the cord cutting era, but it's not just hit a record. How we just noticed that we have to break me jump. It finally luminary. This is the biggest disruptor to the podcast industry yet. And it debuted last week and spoiler alert. It was awful meta. We're going podcast on the podcast. Now, we're recording this pod for you on Friday morning. If anything happens this weekend, we're not gonna be covering it. But we'll get back to you on Tuesday mid bachelor party, but we will be there for you again Tuesday morning. In the meantime, listen to these keywords. And then what our stuff? Daily. Food is candy. They don't reflect the views Rabah her family. Just recommending any securities. It's not a research report or investment advice. Data security. Business. Financial LLC member famous less PC. I story the second biggest company on earth was an investor in the opposite themselves beyond meat. This is a complex store because they just got booted from being investors. It was really it's a corporate drama, but we're talking about plant based meat. Yeah. Full disclosure. I'm all in on the beyond meat brought were situation. Breakfast lunch. Dinner never had that. But I have had an impossible burger with you and your dad as in Hatton at Bairbre will never forget things have much smaller carbon footprints than regular animal based me because there's no animals involved. They're made out of edged Ables. Ever. Now, we already told you about impossible foods a couple of weeks ago because they partnered up with Burger King to launch meat free, burgers, it's called the impossible Walker now beyond me. It's kinda like the a rival Batman superman situation. We got over here beyond meets available at Carl's junior grocery stores now beyond me is getting ready to list its shares publicly on the stock market's on dipping in like two weeks. Very soon. It's very close buddy verse some drama. We gotta talk about this this strategic investor in beyond meat happened to be the world's second biggest producer of chicken, pork. And beef. This is Tyson Foods, formerly known as Tyson chicken. Not kosher situation at all for this really invested twenty three million dollars in beyond me. So now Tyson chicken owned six and a half percent of the shares because they really want to get in on some innovation happening the plant based meat industry jumped like twenty percent last year, and it's worth a billion dollars Tyson. Clearly sees that as a threat and they want to figure out what's going on. So if you're beyond. Mead. You take on these investors because you get cash and bunch of expertise on how to run a big company. You also get what it can be perceived by the employee as dirty money exactly because Tyson is big bad corporate in this situation. But you gotta do what you gotta do. Now. The relationship got awkward in the last week. This got really awkward Tyson recently announced that it's launching a plant based meat alternative. So basically, it's launching a beyond meat competitive beyond meets looking at the situation. They're like, hey, we're really close and all the stuff you invest in us, and you're trying to mess with us beyond me has its quarterly board meeting and Tyson chicken its rival is right there. They literally said we don't want you here. Tyson turns Ryan says we're contractually obligated to be here. We don't know how this ended. But like thank goodness it ended because that was too awkward to continue. What ended up happening was Tyson sold the shares back. It's just not even clear to whom now Tyson is off the company. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies beyond me? This wasn't how this was supposed to end this. Supposed to be so much prettier strategic. Investments are unique corporations have these venture capital arms and they're investing in startups. All the time, it's pretty cool relationship. The startup offers the big corporate a bunch of innovation and how to thrive in the market and the corporation offer's distribution deals experience because it's been there before it's very Koumba yacht kind of circle life. There's a lot of well known corporations that have venture capital on Warner Time Warner's gallon. Google got one Budweiser Kellogg. Shabani Budweiser was investing in apple spritz this past summer. I remember now Altria is a cigarette company. They invested in e cigarette company jewel. Yeah. And that's ending much better than this deal. Also Ford Motor Company invested in electric pickup truck start up just last week. So the theme here is these investments, they build some really nice relationships, and the result should be a big partnership or an acquisition and a lot of champagne this deal did not end happily ever after now for a second story. Comcast is like the old school cable company that you hate to call. Anytime, but you always have to call them. And we just noticed that stock hit a record high. I can't stand Comcast because of Finnity, which is just the worst. I'm still on hold. Actually, it's the worst situation. What would we do love is where it's based the city of Philadelphia, which is one of the most glorious places Paris in the Philadelphia. It is built a statue that the city loves based on a fictional care. If you can't have fun at the liberty bell than I don't know how you can make your own fund Balbo now revenue for Comcast rose eighteen percent last quarter, and that's partly because it acquired a big European cable company called sky, t it always helps your financials when you just bring more companies into yourself. But the first thing we noticed is it lost one hundred twenty one thousand cable TV subscribers cord, cutting is crushing them. But wait, Jack, there's more. They also added three hundred seventy five thousand internet account and added one hundred seventy thousand wireless phone plan. So they're actually like adding more people in. Era when they should be losing more people in the cord cutting era. Comcast stock just hit a record high on those and we're like still on hold with believe this now cord cutting. Here's our bold claim was a net positive for Comcast most cable companies are also internet. Here's the key thing here what you're probably familiar with slash doing. Right now court cutting equals binging binging on shows requires internet bandwidth and the broadest bandwith happens to be maybe with Comcast's now. Comcast has a bunch of obsessed. Netflix and HBO go users that are just eating up internet all the time. So it's gained more internet. This even though it's lost cable biz. Comcast has a lot going on. It also owns thirty percent of Hulu which is awkward because Disney owns the other seventy percent and owns NBC channels. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies over? Comcast Comcast is the lesson. You can't paint all companies with the same brush friends can make or break a company you got in sift out that company and focus on what's going on with that comes. Within the trend cord cutting talked me, you thought it would destroy cable TV companies like Comcast court, cutting would destroy Comcast. But really we saw that the real losers of cord cutting. It was actually the channels the TV channels that were benefiting from all these bundles so ESPN, for example, it's one of the creatives out there. Everybody was paying for ESPN. Even if you didn't want not everyone was watching it was in the bunch. So they got a win out of that cord cutting hurt cable channels, but didn't necessarily hurt. Cable companies are third and final story is a wild one these start-up luminary just launched to change podcasting forever. And we can number one was pretty much kind of failure everybody you're gonna have to trust us on this. But this was supposed to be a pretty big deal in the podcasting like really big like something everyone was talking about. But never ended up happening like an apple car Scituate like when is the apple car coming? It was like Bradley Cooper was supposed to get together with lady Gaga, we're waiting. We're waiting. Didn't happen was supposed to. All see it's supposed to luminary was a podcast platform that was supposed to be the future. It was going to be subscription based now it was so thought to be the future that they raised a cool one hundred million dollars like pre it was mythical status. They raised one hundred million dollars before even having a product record. They just had an idea, and they got venture capitalists to give them one hundred million dollars is both concerning and inspiration. Now, the HBO for podcast model was what they were going for in front of all these corporate VC's and they said, hey, hot cast monetize. Listen, broken advertisement stink. Everybody's listening to ads. They don't care about. So they came out with this idea of we'll just apply a free me model. Here's the option break it down luminary can come for free. And it's basically the same as your apple podcasts. Here's you've already known. Right. So the New York Times the daily foot, then there's a paid version for seven ninety nine a month. That's a premium plan. You get access to forty luminary original. Exclusive podcast sounds fancy. If you're wondering what those are go to the website because it says they're coming. You gotta be patient. Trevor Noah allegedly was one of those exclusive podcast that was going to have. All right. So let's talk about the last week because it was a little bit awkward. It was. It was really I wouldn't say it was fire festival. Bad wasn't fire. It was like a fire festival zero to ten scale a seven day one was like Tuesday or Monday of last week. The New York Times daily barstool sports podcast. The Joe Rogan experience. These are some of the top podcast. They were supposed to be on luminaries all pulled out last second, suddenly and their frustration was that luminary seems to be routing their content through its own server. This is super technical everybody. So basically luminary made everyone who is listening. Listen on like an incognito browser effectively. So that the podcast producers didn't know how many people are listening that was the key frustration. If you're a podcast producer, you need to know how many? People are listening to your show, and they had no idea. This is a labor of love exactly stared at by people in the Miami airport right now, we have our mom is listening. We want to know that people are listening more than just our moms. Thank you for listening. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies over at luminary luminary is trying to get people to pay for something. That's always been free. That's the real challenge here. It's a behavioral won a third of Americans. Listen to podcast right now. But in the fifteen year history podcast, they've almost all been free listening apps. They're all free. So for luminary to get people to pay eight dollars a month it needed the best podcast their war it needed cooperation and buy in from podcast producer. Now. The problem was it lost out on a key part of its platform that talent it didn't connect with them. It fell through what they did looked kind of in authentic, and sketchy and there's a lack of trust. If they can't deliver the content then they can't get the customers. Jack up the takeaways force. Comcast shockingly winning despite the cord cutting. Era and don't paint all companies with the same brush, Philadelphia. Toughest city in the United States. Toughest people. I love it beyond me. It's just had a messy break up with Tyson for just before the Jack. This wasn't supposed to happen. This way. Neither was luminary. But let's get to that. Now luminary needs people to pay for what they've always gotten for free. You can't mess with podcast creators, we feel that mask with podcast create a so Jack snack back to the day in honor of the weekend's festivities. You're ready for this. Yeah. I know. I know one thing about key west it's called the conch Republic because it technically seceded from the United States. Amir like thirty seven years ago, I need more. Let me talk to you about this. So nineteen eighty-two. I'll set the scene US border control sets up a stop right outside of key west look for people with drugs. That's not cool key west doesn't like it. The mayor comes out raises a conquer public flag, declares war in the United States. Secedes from the union hits a guy dressed up in a navy officer on the head with a piece of. Red. And then and then they decided a minute later to come back to the United States and the whole thing. Shortest rebellion in American history lasted for one day, and it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and key west long. It's a charming thing. Right snacker. We gotta hit the beach. We're going to this bachelor party now. Thank you for listening to the pod. We'll be back with you. Choose gain. The Robin Hood snacks podcast.

Welcome dodgers pharmacy. I'm dr mark hyman. that's pharmacy than f f. They are mac. Wia place for conversations matter and welcome to this special episode called housecall or we dive deep into health conditions through the lens of functional medicine. And i'm here today with my friend and colleague. Dr george papp nicolau and we're going to get deep into the poop starring or more important. Why people don't coop can't boop at jebel poop in and how to fix this terrible problem. It affects millions and millions and millions of people. Call constipation not a fun topic to talk about. But unfortunately it's my favorite topic because it's so easy to fix. And i just had one. Beijing who was zone is gonna story. They'll jump right in. George but i i she. She was so. It's like so so you have regular bowel movements. She's a yes. I'm regular balbo issues. I how often you go. She goes. I go every week. I said that's not regular shows his regular for me. I go every week and mike. Wow so people have no idea what. It's like a normal bowel function. You should probably go two or three times a day. In modern industrial society the average sue weight is four ounces in under gathers tons of plant foods and fiber. it's two pounds right which is eight time the way of somebody who's not eating the right food so i often hear from patients soccer. I didn't know that this was normal. That i could actually everyday so we're going to get into it. So welcome george. Let's talk about constipation. Fun governors as you say hundred. Gather say that size of the toilet within would have to decide the dinosaur. That's right well. You see like the elephants who ain't like hundreds of pounds of roughage and five everyday. I think they like fifty kilos a day or something ridiculous so tell us about. How common is this and one's going on really it's a really common problem About eighty million people per you know the prevalence is very high. So eighty million people are gonna suffer constipation and it gets worse as you get older. And it's an eight hundred million dollar business and underestimate because it's alone over the counter mets. There's only eight hundred million dollars that's being spent to have a nice bowel movement. Be on me from with doctors. You're not talking about like stuff you get with a cadillac xbox. That's that's what that's what doctors and i sent it underestimates. Because it doesn't include the otc at the otc meds we over the counter mazzy getting the groceries which is probably way more than we more than that right So tell us tell us what one. What are the complications of constipation. And why is it bad to go regularly. Wise constipation bat so first off. What is what is not regular. What do people consider constipation. Why such as you know. Why is it something that people are. You know we see people got issues and constipation almost one out of every every three patients of my no matter what they're coming for has a gut issue so gut issues in general are just prevalent throughout. This is our world people from all over the world in the center. So i'm always dealing with gut issues particularly constipation constipation leads to bloating and extension and then people identify foods because your constipation. then there's fear and anxiety and then just begins to really take a toll on people's lives and so it is a really big deal the the what's normal number bowel movement. Now i was taught anywhere from three thousand day one every three to five days. you know. yeah that's how long time ago. But the the most recent study using the most respected Tool for determining studying this called the room three Identified constipation is less than three minutes a week. So conventional medicine. Wow listen three minutes a week for more than three months. I i would know what so so when you get constipated other health issue so why is it bad to be concentrated. We okay why it was so go three times a week. I is pretty rarely. Why right here. okay. I think there's a two ways to look at that. One is that Not like once. I'm constipated where the problems. But what got me being constipated in the first place. Any of that goes back to what we always talk about. Is you know how you live. It goes back to lifestyle because back to the trish in it goes back to stress that goes back to exercise And you know just to name three Of the of the of the styles that are most impactful. So if you're not getting good exercise you're not getting good sleep. You're not eating nutritious. You you're going to be in a position to end up with gut issues including constipation. So how you got. There is really important because if you got constipation. that's just the beginning of the problems. And then once you all the concentration the problem is is that you need to be able to evacuate your toxins your metabolic waste and the more that school that seir your biochemical changes that happened in that school allow for the toxins and the compounds that your body didn't want any more to we back into your system and when that happens then you begin to impact your immune system because it begin to increase information and as we always talk about now that that inflammation because impact on every organ system in your body bringing it down. There's really like two main issues. One is just the the direct harm from being constipated which includes hemorrhoids anal fissures in a labs pain and also just feeling like crap. Grab your craft and and you're literally reabsorbed a lot of the toxins. That get excreted by your liver right into your intestinal track. Your re absorbing them. You're also affecting your hormonal metabolism. And you're producing all these products in there that are getting absorbed in what's true about your gut is is is a whole ecosystem of bugs in there that has to be helping like garden and if if the garden isn't health you're not healthy you're immune system's routed bird you're toxic increase brain inflammation it creates systemic disease heart disease cancer diabetes parkinson's parkinson's disease your four hundred percent more likely to parkinson's disease if you're constipated and we know that parkinson's disease related to environmental toxins so not only are you having this sort of anal and physical issues of being constipated allen you feel like crap but it has launched a risk for many many chronic diseases so it's really important to go and go off and go every day or two or three times a day and once you understand how to regulate your gut and fix the causes of constipation then you won't because debated and most doctors just give you laxatives or tell you more metamucil or fiber and that can be helpful but our drink a lot of water but there's so much more to it so tell us what is the conventional medicine approach to constipation and let's talk about what the functional medicine approaches to constipation and in a conventional medicine again. It is the name blame symptom and treat it and so in con- you know so they treat the constipation and over the counter. You can get all types of different products that will be Either the they'll be bulking agents You can have laxatives that bring more water into your school You can have lubricating agents. All these are available. All they do is get the poop out and and make you feel more comfortable but doesn't solve the underlying problem then for people with what's called chronic chronic idiopathic constipation which is the most most common path means by the way. I don't know right. So i don't know why you have it but i'm going to give you a really expensive drugs to make your bows mood. And so they're really expensive drugs. On the market that stimulate the receptors in the vow to get them to move so you can have a boundary. So that's the conventional approach. Let's get it out and let's make the bowels move faster so that it will come out but we're not gonna look at the underlying root causes of why the person's constipated and nor are we going to think about the downstream effects of constipation. Not only of the constipation itself but to get to that constipation again. It goes back to the fact that this long term inadequacy of your diet. The long term impact stress. That results in constipation. But you can't see the impact having on your brain impact it's having on the blood doses of your heart impact. It's having on The your immune system so On the functional medicine side. That's what we do. We begin to focus on nutrition stress lifestyle exercise. We begin to be changed people's lives so that their living healthier and therefore the patient can resolve all themselves. Now yeah well before you jump in. I gonna talk a little bit about the problems with with traditional treatments. Because you know yes. It's fine to take extra fibers so forth all times. I've weird artificial sweeteners. In it and stuff as weird you can take you can take like mineral oil which is fine with. That's kind of gross even can take race laxatives. Men's positive a lot of treatments are can be very dangerous like ex lax or senate cod orchestra. Windsor co considered natural because they feel lazy bowel so people who've been constipated long time they take these drugs which worked for their body. Even smooth move t which is fine for an occasional issue but these things become habit forming and cause a lazy bowel and people can get something called mega con- where they blurry cannot eliminate without these these. These things are people get rely on on on animas or they rely on kalanick's and the truth is unless you dig down into the causes of constipation with functional medicine lens. All these things are just like band aids and they often are harmful not helpful. Now let's stick. Let's look down into medicine. Respect him how do you identify. What's causing a person's constipation. Test you do. how do you think about it. You know what are the. What are the main causes of constipation in our patient population yet. So so the main causes of constipation are going to be one i'd say there's food sensitivities so not being aware of food sensitivities and can create inflammation and altered function of your gut. There's going to be nutritionally. She's like you're just not getting enough fiber. I know you talk about using lodges. Fiber the treat the constipation. But you don't get into that in the internet situation if you're eating foods that aren't process or other processed foods that we don't have any of the In digestible fiber that's required for the school to form correctly and also to maintain the healthy gut microbiome. So it's it's your again. It goes down to the christians involved and What else would be Some 'cause i. I think a lot of causes this. This is still true. So you've got you've got things that are often miss like thyroid. Right new got hit. Low fired functionalize. 'cause lack of magnesium which is a huge issue for people i think forty percent of the population is low in magnesium. And that can drive constipation People often have used issues from taking lots of antibiotics. Which can be a big factor in constipation. the causing smile. Dairy is the number one cause constipation and kids and not winged constipation but Anemia because the dairy irritates the guts in these kids in causes blood loss in the stool. So it cost a patient from dairy a tractor so we've got a lot of things we think about. It can be also things like heavy metals which are factors that can impair function or even weird things like kick infections causing neurologic problem in the gut that help damage the the the the neurological pathways 'cause pair of stalls. And that leads to constipation from tick infections. So from functional perspective we really dive deep into figure out what's going on in the treatment is often so easy is so effective and we will start with the foundational things right. We start with diet and we send them so we go onto the use of specific supplements and other things that can help fix so take us through the the patient you had an unlisted dive deep into the story of what are the. What are the real treatments that we find so successful in rebuilding someone's gut so they have healthy bowel movements and have health as a consequence so the patient that i had she was a nineteen year old nursing. Students You came to see me And had had Prolonged showed the patient after prolonged use of antibiotics recurrent urinary tract infections. So interestingly enough she was in the end of their first year of nursing school. Lots of enormous stress Ten she had pass be able continue to nursing programs. She was in a new relationship and She her diet was really not very good. She's under a lot of stress shooting poorly so when she came to see me. She had miskin com constipation. And we do we do. Some has to really help us. Get down to the root problem and we do that. Complete diagnostic store. Nelson's that allows us look microbiome so we're able to see if you have a balancing good and bad bacteria we're able to see if you picked up any bad guys along the way like parasites worms that can impact your gut function and we look to see if you have all all of the the markers for healthy digestion. Which is really key. So we're able to see if you're making enough of the pancreatic enzyme jeannine is your talks for -cation working correctly your immune system working correctly or markers is inflammation i. That is a complete picture of what's going on in your gut. We also look for something called leaky gut that information you have enough destruction of the coastal membrane. You'll end up breaking down those gates that are responsible for keeping the Guys outlet in good guys into called tight junctions. And when those aren't operating than bacteria compound oxen's get into your system and trigger a lots of inflammation and z's so we do those tests food sensitivities must commonly look for are going to be gluten gluten cross reactive foods that will include a and dairy and soy And rice because they they will act like in your gut. When you're sensitive to and those will be produced when you have lee. So i did all this tests on her And do any tests in her. I just have to remind myself That was those the i did. And so we spectra overgrowth you look at the stool says to be testing. Yes we all that testing and so what. I found what i found her as she did have significant leaky guts and she had something that's called cbo she has the bacteria that lives in your large intestines is just should just lived there and migrated up into your small intestine and now it's where we don't want it to be all that digestion implementation should happened in the in. The large intestine has very thick walls. And now it can. It can maintain all that fermentation that you experiencing comfort but when you're doing firm impatience small tests and then walls from starts to happen. The gas build up you get floated extended and if the bacteria that's causing that overgrowth happens to me in. The phantom bacterium produces methane those organisms are more. They will slow down trend. And that that will lead to constipation. and oftentimes people get labeled your syndrome with constipation and the conventional medicine will be put on medications like when satis which will will get the bows to move but not solve. The problem is curia in this in the small intestine so in her case we treated her small tests by overgrowth with Herbal antibacterial 's We treated her leaky gut by using something called a gloomy which supplies nutrients for the got. The he'll use curson as well Because cursor teams could actually Impact and regulate the tight junctions. We talked about and begin to heal under leaky gut. So you know you took care of leaky gut me reestablish good gut microbiome and we helped her understand the importance of renew tradition so that i talked to her about getting more of the high fiber foods that she needs to get into her diet. you know Nuts seeds beans chickpeas chicory dandelion root Onion garlic which can't get right away. We have to increase your fiber after her cbo was treated because some of those shoes will actually exacerbate or symptoms for once me treated her cbo once we Took care this bias. And then we talked to her about the lifestyle change. She could make which included ir fiber. Susan just mentioned which included making sure. He did drink enough water because water is important. You need that water in the stool to make her. You know fluffy and move and move quickly and easily through the gut and finally out through the rectum hard stools. There are really uncomfortable and a lot of times. People call constipation hard stools. I just have hard schools every day. Put their heart and muse constipation some degree and it's uncomfortable and painful but that is because they're just like drinking fluid or not getting enough fiber now going back to north vietnam. Neanderthal man is poops are really big because you get one hundred and fifty grams of fiber day today. Less than five percent of the american public gets the amount of fiber they should we anywhere from twenty to forty grams of fiber. Most people are getting about eight to ten grams of fiber per day and that it has a lot to do with why we're having you know. Problems display oh sis 'cause fiber also when it's broken down produces a lot of nutrients that are good for the kalana sites and good for the healthy bacteria. They can maintain a good robust population so things in her and she. Her constipation was gone within six weeks. The is pretty amazing. I see i see this to my practice George we really take a comprehensive approach. Is the obvious things right knee. Lots of fruits and vegetables nuts and seeds high fiber plan rich foods. Drink lots of water get exercise. All those things really help Medications are huge factor. Sometimes iron supplements blood pressure. Supplements narcotics. Diuretics are common medications. they will cause constipation. You have to work around them. Make sure you check your thyroid. Make sure you check for diabetes because that can affect neurological system heavy. Metals can be a factor. Even tick infections. We talked about and even things like the despite this in yeast from eating all the antibiotics and processed food. So all these things we want to think about. And then you know often is in terms of supplements. There's this really simple things to do. Magnesium is a big factor. I had a patient who is really going. Every week she had migraines should always other magnesium deficiency symptoms muscle cramps insomnia anxiety palpitations. And i gave what was equivalent about two thousand milligrams of magnesium because. That's what she needed. In order to actually get hurt poop and now more time she needed less and less. We were probiotics. We gave her extra vitamin c. Which will help you poop. We can use things like fats faster. So great they're lubricant mc mctl all which is a basal from coconut. We cut we joke and see that causes disaster pants because if you take too much of it eliminated the poop. That's a good thing. So we really need to understand how to rebuild our whole got using a comprehensive approach looking for the causes and obviously getting all the crap that makes you constipated so that plus exercise stress reduction is a comprehensive approach. And i tell you there isn't. There is a single asian ivan. How poop everyday over thirty years will tell you. It's one of those put fulfilling things that i treat Because i can get better and a frequently. Really when i when i know what i'm helping somebody's gut get healthier. I am helping them. Prevent significant disease down the road because a healthy gut. Poverty has said you know. Death begins in the gut and because long term Negligence your nutrition and your is going to lead healthy gut and the inability for you to get rid of toxins. Absorb the nutrients that you need. Keep you healthy as right georgia. This very important point. I want to emphasize punch. Medicine is not just about treating. Your symptoms of constipation is understanding how it connects to everything that can go wrong with your health. So being copied is as annoying or comfortable or pain. But it's actually al setting you up. For really poor health outcomes across the spectrum of disease with its heart disease cancer. I mean copier constipated. You're more likely to get cancer of the colon for example. So it's really important to get your gut healthy and we've done many podcasts. On the guy this is another one. The focus specifically on constipation. But i feel using a functional perspective using the kinds of thinking reason functional medicine here at the ultra wellness center using the diagnostic tests. That we do at your quite different than traditional medicine. We look back over grozny lookit stool testing. We look at attritional testing. We can really figure out what's going on with people and help them when no one else can and we're now doing stuff on zoom is really awesome and we can be promoted the world in his previous pretty re really Fulfilling because we can really help so many people who just don't get help anywhere else in my my goal is really to end. Needless suffering for millions of people through the power of functional medicine and it works and it really does work in action.

March Madness: BALCO Investigation

"Thanks for joining us. This is the sports criminals March madness special day in March. We're counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from Nineteen Ninety to two thousand twenty. The year was two thousand three. The scandal changed the face of sports forever. I'm of course talking about the BELCO steroid scandal and the high profile athletes. Who were involved for more shocking sports events from history tune in right here every day to our march madness special. Listen free on spotify or wherever you get your podcast on the morning of June. Sixth two thousand three and overnight delivery arrived at the offices of the United States Anti Doping Agency or you Sada the night before. An anonymous caller. Who told you saw that in? Undetectable steroid known as the clear was being distributed to top level athletes by Victor Conte of Bay Area Laboratory. Cooperative or Belco when you saw investigators opened the package. They were shocked to discover a syringe containing trace amounts of the mysterious substance substance that unbeknownst to them had infiltrated the top echelons of nearly every professional sport. Welcome to sports criminals. A par cast original. This is the fourteenth episode in our March Madness special month. Were counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from one thousand nine hundred eighty two two thousand twenty. I'm Carter Roy and I'm Tim Johnson. In today's episode. We're going back to two thousand three and the BELCO steroid scandal federal agents had already been investigating Balakot since August of two thousand and two after an Olympic. Shot put her. Cj Hunter had tested positive for performance enhancing drugs C J. Hunter may not have been big enough name to warrant a federal investigation. But the same couldn't be said for his wife track and Field Star Marion Jones. After winning three gold medals at the Sydney Olympics in two thousand Marion Jones was perhaps the most beloved track and field athlete in the world. Not only was she. Incredibly talented to also stunningly beautiful combination that resulted in several lucrative endorsement deals but allegations of performance. Enhancing drug use had dog Jones ever since high school when the feds launched their investigation. They realize Jones is trainer. Was an associate of alcoves. Victor Conte after you. Sada received the syringe. They opened an investigation of their own. And the first thing you saw a did was test. The substance to determine exactly what it was the scientists who tested the sample identified the molecular structure of the substance and named it Tetra Hydro guest reknown or t h g a synthetic compounds similar to naturally produce human growth hormone however it would take several months and a barrage of labs for you. Sada to formulate a test that could identify T H G IN ATHLETES BLOOD OR URINE. But during that time several. Belco affiliated athletes began testing positive for other illegal steroids and on September third authorities raided the BELCO offices. What they discovered was an elaborate illegal doping program that extended to almost every major sport once they developed an effective testing method authorities analyzed old blood and urine samples from dozens of athletes affiliated with Falco not surprisingly T H G was found in nearly all of them. It didn't take long for the courts to charge conti and his associates for steroid distribution but their punishment was relatively minor only a few months in jail and a few more on house arrest as it turned out it was the athletes particularly Marion Jones. Who WOULD FACE THE HARSHEST PENALTIES? Jones received a six month prison sentence and two years of probation for lying to federal prosecutors. About her use of steroids she was also stripped of her gold medals and dropped by each and every one of her sponsors the fact that many of the Bowel Co affiliated athletes played baseball led to the publication of the Mitchell report which indicted dozens of ball players including mark mcgwire Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds for using T H G and other performance enhancing drugs the Mitchell. Report and Balbo Scandal. Were instrumental in creating stricter drug tests and harsher penalties in almost every sport but they also demonstrated that nearly every top athlete was guilty of using performance enhancing drugs some like Marion.

Election 2020 Postmortem

"On november third americans elected joe biden president of the united states by substantial margins in the electoral college and vote but political picture elsewhere is less clear the senate still hangs in the balance with all eyes on two january runoffs in georgia elsewhere down ballot republicans held their own texas democrats in particular. Had a disappointing night falling far short of their goals. What are we to make the murky election results. Welcome to policy matters. Coins and perspectives for mice universities baker institute for public policy and joe barnes baker institute fellow an host that this episode our guest today is dr mark. P jones is the fellow in political science baker institute the joseph de jemayal chair and latin american studies and professor in the cartman of political science at rice university. Welcome mark thanks joe mark. Let's start at the very top of the ballot. You give me a quick rundown of the presidential election Particularly if there any surprises. I think the principal surprise less that based on the polls donald trump had no chance whatsoever win and actually took a few days after the election was over for us. Staff conclusive evidence. That joe biden will be the next president of the united states. You know the third of the senate was up for for election this time around before the election. I recall many democrats saying they hoped to gain a substantial seats. What actually happened. And how important are these runoffs. In georgia come january. We started off before the night with fifty three republicans to forty seven democrats when the night was over. Republicans have lost two seats. Martha mcsally in arizona in cory gardner in colorado and republicans picked up a seat in alabama. Where tommy Jones so we ended up with at the end of the night for republicans are actually in after the recounts fifty republicans in forty-eight democrats the to georgia seeks they'll go to a runoff and that's for two different reasons one is georgia's one of the few states in the country that requires an absolute majority to win and david purdue while feeding ossoff democrats didn't get fifty percent because there was a libertarian. In the race took a little war that do percent younger race was a special election and that election yet multiple democrats multiple republicans bruni raphael warnock ended up first ahead of kelly waffler with the republican. Vote with congressman don collins. So don't go to a runoff. On january fifth in hanging in the balance will be controlled the senate if the democrats think the seats while fifty fifty tie the tire broken by camel heiress which get the democrats from jordi chuck. Schumer would run the show on the other hand if just one of you fight. A law for erc purdue wings obviously than mitch mcconnell continued to leave the us senate mark. How important is it for. The democrats control the senate their legislative agenda and john to call the senate now doesn't the navy l. to do everything because they documents all fifty of their senators to go along but from an agenda perspective policy perspective. There's quite a bit that they'd be able to do with the majority in the senate. If mitch mcconnell controls that you can expect these men to block pretty much anything that he disagrees with. Republicans disagree with except for probably some things that aren't so as a result biden will be left to try to influence policy via administrative rulings regulatory actions Donald trump has been doing the last two years because he won't be able to pass legislation. That's something the markets like the markets are doing well right now because they believe that republicans will keep control of the senate and therefore be able to maintain most of the status quo if it starts looking like the democrats often. Rafael are not going to win. In georgia or on january six wake up in one of the the markets are going to take a little bit of a tumble because ballot opened up quite a bit more us in terms of statute the democrats to change policy areas from taxes to healthcare to the oil and natural gas industry. And you know particularly for us your texas it's probably a is for the The best thing would be a republican senate because then finding it the margins can do things adverse effect the industry Spur the transition to renewable. It won't be the same as that he actually had legislated our. Let's move on briefly to the us house of representatives again. Not terrible night for democrats. They will retain control but rather disappointing one ryan. Nancy pelosi the democratic congressional campaign for a debate. Each see were they were going to increase the number of seats. They have two hundred thirty three right now. Are they at two hundred thirty three so they were looking at. They're either going up to forty to fifty as it turns out right now. they're just above to eighteen. they're probably going to get to to twenty two twenty one. That's about that. And so she and you need of course joint two hundred and eighteen to have him short so she's going to have a narrow majority as you possibly have and still be the majority party and that's actually a majority that if the wrong people leave off attaway you could have special elections in the middle at you. Know 'cause the majority shifts although for a few seats left pretty unlikely Looking closer to home. Democrats had great ambitions here in texas for the twenty twenty elections. How democrats fair on balanced for the night while so democrats went into the night hoping and believing that they had a good chance a breaking their losing streak that dates back to nineteen ninety six where they lost one hundred fifty three straight elections to republicans they thought the m j. edgar chances john cornyn in the senate race they thought a chance to pick up anywhere from one to five to six Us house seats in maker big play and they believe that they were going to have a reasonable chance of flipping texas house with a net gain of nine seats when the night ended. Donald trump won by six percent. John cornyn defeated them. J. edgar by nine percent of the ten republicans a targeted in the us house. They didn't win a single one of those races and their necking in terms of flipping. The south was absolutely zero. They won in johnson defeated. Sarah davis urine houston but that was balanced down. I out mike. Some feel obligated democrat. Tina lonnie on west houston so yet one of democrat defeating the incumbent johnson the democratic Amos yet one republican dean Mike scofield defeating climate. So at the end of the night. The balance of power was a really. This was an election where democrats had iot apps and it really depends on how they look at the election year. Getting compared two thousand eighteen is the baseline. It's disappointment because they made no real progress but if they will get a competitive two thousand sixteen they could be happy that they held their own. They maintain the gains that they had achieved back in two thousand eighteen. What do you think explains the relative disappoint of democrats. One is an over reliance on public opinion polls the turned out to be pretty flawed in most cases. Now that's not all the cases for instance is involved in school with unicef houston's high school of public affairs and we did a poll where we had donald trump a defeating joe biden by five point. Three percents access right now. It looks like he's my five point. Eight percent but if you believe most of the also donald trump was either going to win by half a percent or joe biden was going to win so there were battling Immigrants especially since the also spent quite a bit of money Local national by my accounts at least over a quarter of billion on racist and really had little to show for it at the end of the night other than perhaps more editor races than they add into state. Now look you mentioned polling and the the whole issue of the accuracy of polling as gained a lot of science since election night There were a lot of poles not all and not everywhere but there were audibles at were not. Just all a stupendous layoff. I'm thinking of of the south carolina. Polls for instance the think it is a major problem in terms of polling and and is there anything that can be done to remedy. It is a problem in that. We had some goals that just had results ever when our lease a when you see the actual voting results they were. They're missing by fifteen points in places like wisconsin or south carolina yet credible. Pollsters saying the biden was going to win by ten to fifteen points. Wisconsin ended up waiting by. About what or south carolina's lindsey. Graham was behind ended up winning by double digit margins. So it's a it's a real problem. I think we're going to be facing whole still provide information but i think people's trust in the polls Armored initially because of so many errors in terms of predicting the and the air's replying also were primarily with donald trump there across the board at the polls sort of consistently underrepresented republican voters in overrepresented democratic voters. In part that's due to a crisis in Polls as it's tougher and tougher to get people to respond owl's usually about three four percent a- will respond and then you have to wait those nurses up to you have trouble getting people to respond and you also mitt missed the mixture of the electorate. You think too many people in the graphic going actually down that can also to miss the polls. Now we also. I think i really understand. It's looking at some of taxes falls that like our poll in other 'nother polite did in august with texas hispanic also foundation we consistently it should trump winning somewhere between thirty five and forty forty two percent of the latino vote some of the other polls that far more off had him only fifteen or twenty percent. That's a the latinos. They were wholly obviously. Were not representative of the broader latino populations. That's the best data. We have right now. Exit data suggests that Trump went about forty percent of the latino voted giant warning. One out forty three percent. Close to greg abbott. When in the past now that brings up another issue. That's come a great deal which is trump's at least given the preliminary exit data and some other district up the data there's evidence that trump substantially increased his performance among hispanics not just in texas but perhaps in florida's well you think this is a national phenomenon or very focused on individual states will where we saw it. The strongest was in florida. Texas florida tended to had more to do with foreign policy issues related socialism cuba and venezuela and nicaragua up in texas. It was primarily electric a socially conservative politically conservative. Adriatic pro law enforcement and Also who's benefited from trump's economy for particularly in the energy industry. So we tried to explain out what how. Donald trump improved his performance in the big south texas counties. Balbo county cameron. County webb county and in large part due to a combination of being able to tie himself to law enforcement which is popular down there And also the oil natural gas into subic source of jobs. Those people who live there but also people live there working permian Able to support their families the so he's not donald trump's support increase. I ten twelve fifteen percent in many counties. Newsweek counties where eighty eighty five ninety percent of voters registered voters are in so any increase is primarily due to his votes well mark. I am so grateful that you came on. You came on just before the election and now you're on after the election and although no one in the world has as a crystal ball. I urged people to go back and listen to our earlier.

chicago doodle do cockatiel did yes all right excellent stuff a all right let's get to the phones who's been holding on here forever greg is i've been holding firm drank drank hello yes sir hey joy that's not love the show i love you guys you guys do a great job i don't thank you brother appreciate it were all good you know i'm okay but listen lebron and all this tonight all he has to do is go to a building nike get a logo for co why that's all he cares about he doesn't showing no emotion but obviously he cares about the logo and lebron gifts that sound like he did with the jersey number and that's a game over that would be a pretty strong move i mean we did that claw back from nike that would be a really strong move and who is the most powerful person that like you right now that would be lebron james so why don't we just do the end kelly there'll be done it'll be ovoid lakers but i think of my thoughts okay simple now here's the thing though even the braun has that plant owners try as already said he's willing to do that well i i would say even lebron with nike no i know the bummer says he's willing to pay sure yeah but here's the thing here's the thing if you're a little braun and you're gonna get that claw back for co why you wait until after all the meetings have taken place so that could be you're trump card yeah you throw that out after cohen met with everyone right let me go to a year that is excellent trump cards kevin whittier hello cav hey guys up and so i just wanted to say that you're not quite coming chalet an i think the only reason for the delay has nothing to do with the lion it has more to do with oncle dennis and magic johnson i think that most reports coming out about hawaii at that were linked to the lakers were mostly positive into magic johnson ended up stepping down from his position and i think the only thing that's causing this delay is that his uncle in magic are holding this over the head of the lakers a top brass and they want magic to feel some sort of relevance in this process some sort of relevant if they get these three female together and they can build a legacy magic one cement his legacy in this process and i think that end the kicker to all of this is the only reports that came out about a meeting between hawaii and the lakers involve the fact they didn't want rob pelinka in the meeting and they want it magic johnson so to me it seems like they're dragging this out this is magic you know a moment moment to get back out pulling an you you've seen this for whatever it's worth i think at the end of the day quiet and it come to the lakers do you ruled that part of it that this is just magic's one last a i don't i don't i don't think shutout a only they're purposely stalling this out like for dramatic effect a really emphasize how much magic is a part of this but if you're asking me do i think magic enjoys the idea of people thinking he's the guy that brought in quiet leonard and rob pelinka the man he labeled a backstabber damn right on that jugs and joined that yeah for sure why well you and i i think you are naive if you think that this is not even a little bit personal yeah oh i think it has to be personal to some extent for him 'em you know i think him saying i don't wanna take anyone's job you know ramona no matter why it's hard out loud yeah kind of illustrates some of that gilbert in diamond bar what's up gilbert good afternoon gentlemen you know i am kind of upset that the media keeps slamming the lakers i think unfairly trying to make them look unattractive the free agent you know initially you know i was hearing these reports that lebron was upset the he was gonna demand a trade and then lebron comes out and and posted video saying they're all live here working at working out at the laker facility then they get eight b b and the reason they were able again it'd be it'd be the some of the moves that were criticizing clear cap space then they're criticized for not knowing how they handled the salary cap supposedly during the negotiations and it turns out now they have max cap space and now i'm hearing oh you know why it's gonna take a leap of faith to go at the lakers why they went to super no no that's not okay hold on one second hold on one second over because i'm the guy who said the leap of faith in when i specifically was referring to is the leap of faith about these attention that you get and the scrutiny that you're under as a laker andy awaken become kind of invasive and that's part of the drill for being a laker and that stuff gets out from this organization that's what we've seen this is the tightest we've ever seen this organization over the last year so when it comes to information getting out that is simply eight fact so that's the leap of faith when you're talking about why an what he doesn't seem to one in his career that spot in about alex in or the ones that leak that that information about the trade of the young guys and not lakers so yes i think well i mean magic kind of move kind of magic is also someone who talks to the media a lot right like that's like like let's not just absolve them of that i mean it's true but that guy now so snow but you're talking about back then but he's also he's never gone i mean that's clearly he's now it's like bill murray and what about bob like he's never gone yeah and that's again that's part of the drill and that's something co why is in a lotta ways taking a leap of faith it doesn't mean the lakers are attractive in a lot always generally don't say that we got one more round of calls will take in the next segment plus i wanna play a game a so we'll have some fun nbn music will play a game of free agencies winners and losers in free candy apps you have three options winner loser or the same okay there's obviously varying degrees in all of those we can't you could give a quick answer as to why you think they're a winner loser or the same the varying degrees of all that so we'll do that will take another radicals as we get out of here for the day saddana show back in three minutes saddana show your audience being alley handicapped minutes gear show will take one miranda calls today what's coming on after us once you do we know soccer weekly days in our our buddy dave denholm soccer weekly excellent stuff and mario's on that show all the time to be yeah we go hi tom a bunch of give me some fun ambient music real quick ahah before i get to the calls and we get ready to get out of here today winner loser or the same okay i'm gonna give you a team can you tell me winner loser or the same the boston celtics winner loser or the same i would say loser in the sense that they're gonna miss out horford a lot he is so important to what they do on both sides of the ball aunties he's been really important them against in particular a lot of the teams they play against in the east with joel embiid or yoenis yeah they're gonna miss him like i i'm good with kemba walker in kyrie's place yeah and hopefully gordon hayward could be gordon hayward but i think they're slightly lose yeah i would agree slight slight loser 'em because of al horford i think kimber kyri like annotating just based on the baggage alone even though he's like a diet version of kyrie on the floor is almost a wash yeah but as we all horford and they don't have enough big man it's very simple 'em clearly the brooklyn the nets are winners right so we both agree on that we could move forward clearly the knicks are losers in this situation man i i don't think they're losers i don't they are not losers in the sense that moving forward i think they're screwed i actually think they're they're setting themselves up to operate like a normal rebuilding team the problem is all the baggage that they kerry and the way dolan was talking leading up to be off season like you know we got this right like their reasons you could be apprehensive about not giving kevin durant max yeah i don't think it's i don't think that's completely out of question i mean i guess but he's not gonna pull that off that's the problem you don't have the equity if you're james dolan yeah i think they're big loser figures i always think they're big while i was gonna say you ask me if they're just big losers the answer's yes just not necessarily be off season philadelphia seventy sixers i think winners i agree i wanna see what that starting five looks like yeah yeah i i'm curious i think the only issue they have is still shooting i'm curious this year where the shooting is gonna cover adjusting shooting a little bit yeah i mean he's he's pretty good shooter but they don't even knocked down guy no they down the roster right now on i would let me look you're a little further indiana pacers i would say winners yeah yeah indiana did nicely for themselves malcolm brogdon a lot of money for him but he's good player charlotte clearly loser own they you wanna talk about a new organization what the hell are they doing yet terry rozier nineteen million oh my god chicken michael jordan lose their mind i i have no like if you're not gonna pay kemba walker just start to tear down process the nickel even science yeah orlando oh he resigned yeah hey i'm thought i missed that somehow him in a a parent's ross resided in amino i must have i must have forgotten the mooch part i know turns ross here's a controversial under there's people in different sides of this one the miami heat winners or losers i'm not a big jimmy butler guy right there's a lot of people like that and i just think he's not as as he's really good i don't think he is good enough to be worth the headache that he seems to bring in jimmy really loves to make it about jimmy yeah for sure but i do i i would say slight winter because they needed an alpha on that team they clearly land that he's got a top five coach now that he gets her life for a and i think that clearly we know that pat riley is willing to wheel and deal right here there's gonna be more to come i think there needs to be more common cause otherwise i think that set up is going to be frustrating for butler let's go to the west there's plenty of the focus on their golden state man they were in a tough situation like losing the rant losing clay i'm gonna say winner just because i think they made the best of a bad situation i i would agree with that but because of that i have to go slight loser you know what i'm saying because even though i think what you're saying you lost the best player arguably in the sport and you got dangelo russell just fine is good way that kind of when he worked vitamin if they kept duran he's not gonna be around for like a year maybe you would have kept him though i'm sure i would have felt better about your future clippers and lakers undecided yet at this point phoenix suns losers what the hell are they doing i they're just happy the hornets are in this league i mean good lord i man i like i actually like rubio for them just 'cause i think they need some stability they they need somebody who's out there is a pro in knows what they're doing is don't get what they're doing yeah i don't either i and i james jones says it dude like that's my guy but it's like dude what do you do it on the dallas mavericks winners or losers or the same the same yeah i feel like they don't really do anything oh yeah they feel sam houston rockets the same or do you feel like they lost cause they wanna jimmy butler i feel like they lost just because the mood in that locker room in within that organization seems really bad right now like i mean they're in a position where logical you'd say run it back and they were in such a hurry to tear it down you wonder how that's gonna affect the locker room yeah new orleans pelicans big winners huge winner big winners huge yeah what a great off season that yeah i agree out you know jj redican derrick favors address veteran guy so how mandate david griffin showed why if nothing else people said the lakers should hire the minnesota timberwolves losers man they wanna dance dangelo they're stuck with andrew wiggins they're stuck in wherever they are right now a portland trailblazers intrigued now intrigued with that's gonna be losers timmy assan whiteside you're that's a loser they may i say i love it but i wanna see what it looks like a utah jazz big oil man maybe the biggest winners in free agency you could make that argument yeah you could make the argument the jazz had the best all time least right now you have four we figure out collide right yeah yeah it's fantastic night bats are winners and losers segment a let's go to jeff in tarzana jeff go ahead buddy 'em a quiet shoe company is new balance right yes it happened to steve a bomber by new balance i mean he clearly gonna afford it yeah that possibility without happening be able sure that he would get co why i mean i don't know i don't know how that works i don't think that could be a thing i could be wrong but i i dunno not really 'cause wise on the contract with new balance so he's gonna get paid no matter who owns it right i mean unless he's worried about his next contract with new balance i know yeah i don't know if that were solomon in like balbo went up solomon i'm good guys you know here's the thing i mean ultimately the pitch who's going to do is gonna win this guy over unless he's already made up his mind so i ask you guys the question who gives the better pitch the lakers with jeanie and whoever else is gonna be in that meeting at this point i got my head is spinning with that organization which is my organization of course there's a laker fan or the clippers what bomber jerry west dock and their gm well actually it's just a better pick maybe it's just based on the pitch as opposed to the roster in the possibilities it's the clippers yeah i mean this is what makes a really fascinating if you're talking about the people giving the pitch pitch it's the clippers if you're talking about what you're pitching could be the laker correct robert in long beach what robert felons fellows i keep hearing about all this off the court stuff they're picked at all the garbage let me tell you something quite a smart man he's looking at basketball and we just lost him today by signing j w y d is injury prone lebron james is getting older i don't care if he got his old trainer back and he is in great shape kilos of the bar he got on any many sweet the beat so getting w today tells him this is gonna be top heavy no doubt and even those guys are healthy you still need to be there is no doubt on this roster he knows if he's not coming in no ability though there's no ability to bring in deptford they're gonna sign quite right that rosenstein so he's not coming here because we have no doubt and we have no well good to robert robert to robert point even there's a bunch of guys going from minimums right now that could have helped the lakers already like willie cauley stein when from minimum wilson chandler went from minimum a number of guy i mean but will on heroin that always hurt i mean if you're concerned about emmanuel moody i went from minimum you know what i'm saying like well that's what's left no i get it but i'm all those guys could have helped the laker i guess i i usually makes a good those guys are interchangeable who they're be picking up i don't know about the end if that's big foot why it's it's far as the lakers then he signs low days ago when he said figure out the rat right i i think i still think why if it were me i would still sign with the lakers even despite all that 'em because of just the

BALCO: Steroids and Snake Oil | 1

"It's a Timur. Third, two thousand three little pass noon on clear, sunny day, sweat adrenaline, anticipation, fill the air, two dozen officers from five different government agencies in standing park near the San Francisco airport, leading the charge is a lean focus man standing six foot seven, Jeff Novitsky is an agent with the IRS, but today he's not after back taxes or secret Bank accounts. This is a drug bust and not an ordinary one was not in a few minutes. We will proceed approximately one point five miles to our target as far as we know the suspects do not own any firearms. I repeat as far as we know to seize all controlled with unknown substances airf- neyla any documents, dating back to nineteen Ninety-four. If you find anything with the name fairy bonds on it, notify me a SAF up that. They arrive strip mall, Vicky signals to the officers to surround a low nondescript. Sign outside reads Falco bay area laboratory coop. Wages, leave a search, warrant. Everybody show me your hands. He agents swarm into the building with their guns drawn. They move quickly hurting the three people inside into the center of the room while they secure the premises. Joyce falente the office manager is shaking as she raises her hands above her head. She looks to her husband. Jim bow goes vice president for reassurance, but he stands silent and Ashwini, but the agents attention isn't focused on them. It's on Victor Conte, the founder and president of belco. He's a muscular Fifty-three-year-old within moustache and slicked back hair. You might say, he looks like a used car salesman, but he's wearing a white lab coat. It's in congress, but so is everything about Victor Conte navicular instruction officer to Pat Conte down for weapons and asked if he's willing to talk to them, Conti agrees. They go into the conference room. Nowitzki pressures Conti telling him they've got ample proof. His guilt and that is cooperation might be looked on favourably by prosecutors. It's a well worn cop tactic and savvy suspects don't fall for it. They clam up and insist on having a lawyer present. But Victor Conte is an odd mixture of brilliance and naievety. He talks and talks and talks for three hours. He answers all of agent Novitsky questions. He even answers questions. Novitsky doesn't ask considering he's going through a federal raid. Victor Conte is pricing com. He's used to trusting his instincts. It served him well in the past, but this time is instincts, couldn't be more wrong. Conti doesn't know it, but the fallout from this rate, we'll bring down champions and world record holders. There will be congressional investigations, lawsuits and recriminations records will be revoked careers ended and jail time served. This is the story of Balch, oh, the steroid scandal that rocked sports and. Does to this day. From wondering, I'm Lindsey, Graham, and this is American scandal. Our nation's history has been shaped by the fall of the powerful played out in back rooms and boardrooms and is littered with lies and schemes that went horribly awry. And yet we're transfixed by these larger than life characters with dream so big. They can't be contained by laws or norms were honor or shame. In this series, we're diving deep into America's most fascinating scandals to explore not only what happened, but why from sports to politics to business and culture, we'll get to know those with aim for the stars gone out in a place of infamy. In this five episode series, we're delving into a story that's American as baseball hot dogs and apple pie. Yes, hot dogs are full of carcinogens. Apple pie isn't really American, but baseball, baseball is our national pastime. Generations of kids grew up idolizing baseball players like Babe, Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron memorizing their stats and marveling at the records. They said, watching breathlessly as new players shatter those records, and there's no sport where records are more sacred than baseball. Sports is the ultimate meritocracy. That's why games have rules the best team wins the best players excel. So when someone's caught cheating, they don't just get into trouble. It's an affront to everything we believe, at least that's how it looks from the bleachers. But the view on the field is different relentless pressure to make the team to stay a step ahead of your rival to break records. If the key to winning is being the best and the best are using performance enhancing drugs, what do you do? Athletes face, wrenching choice, cheat or lose. It's a controversy that engulfed sports and standing squarely at the center of it is Victor Conte, a charismatic self taught scientists training some of the most famous athletes in the world. This is episode one steroids and snap. It's July of nineteen Eighty-three. Victor Conte sits in a cramped office, barely the size of a single wide trailer. He leans against a huge high-tech machine that takes up nearly half the room. It's called an inductive -ly couple plasma spectrometer or icy p. and it's the centerpiece of victor's business. I see peas are used for everything from inspecting the well on Tomek Bon casings to matching samples taken from crime scenes to testing urine and blood. But he's the first person to use one to analyze athletes, urine blood, to determine what supplements will maximize their performance. Sitting on the small warned couch is a two hundred eighty five pound shot. Put her an Olympic hopeful named Greg to frolics between him and the ICP. There's barely room to turn around three words, Greg trace mineral testing. All right. So how does trace mineral testing get to Olympics? You know how to get to Carney hog Greg? Yeah, practice and I do. I train every day the air conditioner in the window, rattles struggling against the heat, thrown off by the ICP or maybe it's the heat from victor's enthusiastic pitch. He's an impressive speaker training. Just one component to practice, Cray. Equally important. Are your thoughts, your actions, your dreams, and what you put into your body, Greg nods his head vice what Conte is selling. I believe you can be Olympia gray with me, one hundred percent. You can't. If you think you can Vickers a big believer in positive thinking and following your dreams. A few years ago, he and. His wife opened a small vitamin store. The bay area was ground zero for alternative therapies, herbalism and new age philosophy. So they were in the right place at the right time. The supplement industry which is largely unregulated was on the cusp of exploding into a billion dollar business, but hard work and positive vibes weren't enough. They struggled on the store closed. So Victor decides to narrow his focus. He'll work one on one with elite athletes to create customize supplement programs. Experts, dismiss Conte's, trace mineral testing, and his supplements is nonsense. But Victor has studied the science and much forty says true. His icy p machine does detect, trace levels of minerals, working out does deplete them. And the supplements he recommends to his clients do contain those minerals, but the experts scoff, you don't need supplements to replace these minerals because minerals are replaced by things like leafy greens. In a normal diet Conti has no love for so called. Experts. Sure. They have advanced degrees fancy titles, and he's a college dropout from Fresno. But he's smart and he's driven, and he spends every spare moment at the Stanford University medical library studying researching dreaming up new theories. He likes to think of himself as unconstrained by the boundaries of a formal education Conti believes in what he's offering so much. So he doesn't charge the athletes for his service. Instead, he gives them clothing to wear the clothing consists of bow hats, t shirts. If elite athletes credit their success to Balakot the maybe the general public will buy supplements to. There's one small, the lead athletes need to be the best of the best, the kind the whole world watches. They need to be Olympians. Kanti spends the next few years promoting the business and his athlete clients refer their peers, the better known. He becomes the higher caliber of athlete. He attracts NBC sports presents the nineteen eighty eight summer Olympics Seoul sponsored by Budweiser, proud sponsor of the nineteen Eighty-eight US Olympic team. And by nineteen Eighty-eight. His work and belief in himself has paid off. He has twenty five top athletes in a stable and they're heading to the summer Olympics and Seoul, Korea. He proudly presents to the world, the Balbo, Olympia NHS. All of them, of course, decked out and Valco swag. He's taking a big risk investing in his athletes by providing them with free blood and urine analysis and who supplements. But is that all he's giving them. We can't be sure conscious telling the truth. But here is one indisputable fact shot put her Greg to frolic was ranked number ten nationally when he met Conti. Now he's number one in a member of the Olympic team. The experts dismiss Conti and his trace mineral analysis as joke. Conti. Thanks. Who's the joke now? Record broken ten times and incidently that laws despite his big dreams. Not one Balch Olympian, winsome, Greg to frolic comes in knife far behind gold medallist booth to close twenty two meters forty seventies on the lost. Throw this competition. Ten men go what attest of competitiveness that was off Tim shakes. Eddie believe what he's done. Greg to frolics can't believe it either. He knows exactly what the secret to Timmerman success is banned performance, enhancing drugs. East Germany has had spectacular results at the Olympics and had a devastating cost under a covert state sponsored doping program started in the nineteen sixties coaches and trainers pumped athletes full of anabolic steroids and other drugs over ten thousand athletes. Some them barely teenagers were forced to participate. Often. They weren't even told what they were taking. They won medals by the side effects were severe, and even in some cases, deadly for east Germany winning was a matter of national ego. It was at the height of the Cold War and they wanted to prove that communist countries produce better athletes since the athletes had no choice in the matter. And the state was sponsoring the program. There were no checks or balances. They test their athletes right before the games. If they tested positive for steroids, they'd fake an injury and with. Draw for a small country. The results were stunning in the nineteen sixty eight Olympics east Germany won nine gold medals, ten years later they want forty. Doping at the Olympics was nothing new ancient Olympians nod on sheep testicles to spite their testosterone levels in the nineteen thirties and fed phetamine were the performance enhancer of choice by the nineteen sixties. The popularity of steroids was so widespread that the Olympics had to admit they had a problem. They announce a ban on the most popular performance enhancing drugs and set up a testing program to ensure compliance. But by nineteen Eighty-eight, the soul and picks had become a steroids arms rings for each new test athletes, and trainers find a way to beat it or new drug to take. Sometimes they're caught, but most of the time they get away with their even allegations of cover ups by Olympic officials who don't want the extent of the doping to be known and the athletes who don't take banned. Drugs are often left. One step behind and one step can be the difference between winning and losing. If they're caught it can mean giving up metals and millions of dollars. An endorsement deals not to mention the risk to their health, but for many athletes, it's a risk worth taking and that's where Victor Conte comes in, what if someone could ensure the drugs are pure and instruct athletes how to use them for maximum effectiveness while minimizing side effects and most importantly, make sure they still tests negative for banned substances. The sole games will become known as the Ben Johnson Olympics after the Canadian sprinter who broke the world record for the hundred meters only to have it revoked two days later when he tested positive for steroids shotput, Greg frolics, we'll later be busted for using steroids as will Jim daring. Another member of the balcony, Olympia. Did they get their steroids from Victor Conte Victor says, no, and they don't contradict him to stay. No one has come forward to say Conti gave them steroids in the nineteen eighties. Does that mean he didn't? That's the problem with telling the story of Victor Conte and Balakot. There's no is EP spectrometer to take the stream of claims and contradictions isolate. What's real? Did he open belco with the express purpose of selling illegal performance, enhancing drugs. There's no smoking gun proving that he did. It's safe to say he is a genuine interest in maximizing athletic performance and that he has an open mind and veracious appetite for learning and exploring new ideas. He hasn't gone to the dark side not yet. American scandal is sponsored by ancestry. My father has avidly researched our family's genealogy for years. He started back in the eighties with no internet to help him. Sometimes traveling to far flung places to seek out records and documents years later in the late nineties, he found ancestry.

In the late nineteen. Eighty s Victor Conte is still struggling to make Balch oh a profitable business. He keeps his eye on the prize and his nose to the grindstone, seizing any opportunity to promote Balbo and himself along the way he meets kindred spirits, including some powerful well-connected ones like Mr. Gizmo. It's the fall of nineteen thousand nine Mr. gizmos standing with Victor Conte at the edge of a track. They watch the young athlete named Mike Powell Tioulong rope around his waist and unroll a huge bundle of fabric. What's this? Victor, see Mike over there. I've got this Tracy idea. I love your crazy ideas. Gizmo laid on whenever you're ready. Mike, Mike Powell has a long rope trailing from his back, like some kind of multicolored tail what the hell is he doing? What has he runs something happens. I wish she opens up behind him like dragster at the end of speed race, Jesus, Victor, Conte's Stanick good job. It's resistance training, but for a runner, I'll be damned. Mr. Gizmo is track coach, Randy Huntington. His athletes gave him the nickname because of his relentless pursuit of alternative training methods with sparkling blue eyes, a ready smile. He loves to tinker and he'll give due consideration to just about any new theory. He likes Conti and he sends several of his best athletes tobacco. Victor Conte knows he can make Mike Powell star and he's right if he believes something should happen, he makes it happen. His confident optimistic, interesting to talk to. He's got that indefinable quality that natural leaders and politicians have. He seems to have been born with growing up in California's central valley. He was known for picking up girls. Literally, if you saw girl, he liked he walk over to her and sweeper offer feet, and he never got punched her slack for he was also a gifted athlete who set a record is high school for the trip right away. He figured out how to turn his talent. Into cash. He chat someone up the local bowling alley point out of nearby pond, bet them that he could jump across the pond, fifteen feet wide. Most folks laughingly took them up on the bed. Dichter teenage hustler always had the last laugh, genuine talent working angle that was Victor Conte then and it's Fisher Connie. Now. Conti continues to build his business through the eighties, hiring writers to pen fawning articles and fitness magazines. Plopping his bow hats on promising athletes and in nineteen ninety. One Conte's prediction about Mike Powell comes. Powell having just seen Carl Lewis jump that wonderful, wonderful, eight meters and ninety one. We really went for that one that huge. Oh my goodness, eight ninety five that is history in the making that the world record, he wins to silver medals and set a world record for the long Joe. But even with some of the athletes at sponsor setting records, Balakot is struggling financially. It's a business model that sounds simple. Give away your service to celebrity clientele. They promote the business and the business thrives. The problem is he's got some athletes with potential, but a shot put her here a long jumper. There aren't going to make the business. He needs real celebrity household names. Unfortunately, Conti's own household is he's gone through a very bitter. Divorce is x. y. stole star. She set their house on fire tore out his hair and tried to run him over at least that's his first. In light of her alleged Radic behavior. He's been given custody of the three dollars, which means he's trying to run a business and be a single day. It's not easy. Then on a hot summer day in nineteen ninety six Conti gets news that will change the course of his line. Mr. Gizmo calls to say, he's got another athlete. This is nothing. New. Gizmo has referred number of athletes Valco, but this time it's one of the most infamous players in the NFL William Romo Romanowski his a linebacker with the Denver Broncos fans and teammates, love him, posing players, fear him over his sixteen year career. He'll earn a reputation as one of the dirtiest most violent players in the game. He tears off another player's helmet jabs Mun the eyes, executes legal, hit, breaks players, Sean kicks, a player in the head. Actually, he does that twice. He even fights with his own teammates. He punches defensive back Marcus Williams so hard. He breaks his eyes socket that end Marcus Williams career, but Bromo Romo keeps on playing. Sirom. Oh, isn't an easy guy to get along with. But in this moment, meeting Romo is the break. Victor Conte desperately needs. Hello. I'm here to see Dichter Conti that's me. Conti turns around see a man on the doorway, a huge man. He's six foot four, two hundred fifty, five pounds. It's menacing. Normally, cocky, Conti is feeling intimidate, but he's not about to let this man see it. Hello, you must be Bill call me Romo. Okay. Follow me. Romo Conti leads Romo to gleaming high tech device. It looks like a Xerox machine on steroids so realm. I'm going to do a full analysis using the inductive Lee, coupled plasma spectrometer. How much that machine cost you the ICP that is a quarter of a million dollar machine. The truth is it costs a lot less, but he wants to impress room doesn't work for mil. Huh? I spend that much year on my crew. Your crew? Yeah, five chiropractor four acupuncturists three nutritionists to massage therapist, speed, coach, high-performance trainer. Victor doubles down something every ounce of confidence and charm sounds like a great croup exactly what you need and deserve best of all. Now you have meat like your confidence, Victor. So why sample for the ICP analysis you're going to give me a Cup, or should I just piss all over your fancy machine? They're sterile sample cups in the bathroom sitting Victor. I know the routine done it a thousand times. Romo is obsessed with testing. He regularly has his hair urine, even his stools tested. But Conti discover something new when he gets back the result, he tells Romo that he has low comfort levels. A sign of steroid use. Not that it's a surprise. Romo is the poster boy for ROY drain Conti makes him an offer. If you're going to go that route, he says, you may as well use the top shelf stuff. Conti will take a look at what he's using. Make some suggestions. So is this the moment when Victor Conte decides to deal steroids or has he been dealing them for years like so many things about this story? The truth is difficult to nail down and Conti likes it that way. What we do know is that went Conti meets Romo his life takes a major turn for the better before he meets Romo his business and his personal life or in disarray. He desperately needs an income stream. And Romo might be famous enough to make the bow, go business model work. He'll be able to introduce Conti to other high profile athletes. He can recruit Klein's. Maybe that's the missing piece in the bow business plan. He needs a spokesman a face for the products he is or isn't selling. Cal Ripken junior IRS special agent, Jeff Novitsky has been on a stakeout. He's in a found for the past four and a half hours. His six foot seven inch frame has been pretzels into the driver's, seeing a foreign fiesta settles into the upper deck. He's a cheater, he should change his name to cans steroid Jeff. Can we just listen to the game? It pisses me off. They wait another hour listening to the game. Listen appeal g. what's his secret? Could it be steroids pisses you off so much? Why don't you listen to the game? Because otherwise, I'm sitting here with you on the most boring stakeout in the world. These guys aren't even athletes. They're freaks my God. Here we go. I love sports. I believe the best players should rice the time, the best players, not the ones who get the best drugs. Seventeen players at forty home runs last year. You know what the previous high for a season was. Oh, no, but I'm stuck in the car with you. So you're going to tell me eight. How do you get from eight to seventeen? How does that happen? Because they're eating spinach and getting a good night's sleep. If I only knew someone in law enforcement, Jeff, I tell him to go investigate. Jeff Novitsky grew up eating, drinking and breathing sports. His father was a high school basketball coach for thirty four years, Jeff excelled in track and field. But his passion was basketball and with his height. He had potential. He went to San Jose State on a basketball scholarship. He was solid, not a show boat, the kind of player you can depend on, but knee injuries took away any dream he might have had of going further. Novitsky isn't bitter about his abortive basketball career. He took it in stride. Sometimes you get a break and sometimes you get a bad bounce. That's how it is in sports. And if taking performance enhancing drugs was the only way to succeed in pro ball. Well, better to work for the IRS then win by cheating. The IRS accounting sounds dull, but Novitsky doesn't sit behind a desk scrutinizing people's deductions. He's a special agent with a criminal investigations unit. He carries a gun a works, undercover bussing drug rings and not all stakeouts. His boring as this one, he helped bring down a mob connected sheriff's deputy who bragged about killing people threatened to cut off victims finger with a samurai sword. But while this stakeout maybe boring, the stakes for his career higher than any case he's ever worked. He imagined himself at a news conference for signing copies of his bestselling book cameras, clicking reporters, yelling questions, maybe even Hollywood, make a movie about him if his suspicions about Balch. Oh, are correct half of the records and sports. Countless Olympic. Medals were won by cheating and it'll be him Jeff Novitsky who blows it all wide open. They're going to remember his. American scandal is sponsored by hellofresh. This first series is all about performance enhancing drugs while they clearly work there a shortcut and their chemicals not found in an ordinary diet.

Just've isky using the only one who rails players he suspects of using steroids. There's someone else who shares his outrage that person. Perhaps apprising Lee is berry bonds in nineteen Ninety-six Barry Bonds who's a superstar, the San Francisco Giants signed him for baseball's biggest contract ever nearly forty four million dollars over six years his his own private area in the clubhouse, the luxury hotel suites when the team goes on the road. In fact, the giants owner Peter McGowan has bet the farm on bonds. He's built a new stadium without any public funding. Saddling the giants with an unprecedented one hundred fifty million dollars in debt McGowan needs draw. Barry Bonds delivers. What happens when you to. I still can't believe to Utah. And you live. Bombs produces MVP performance in the first year of his contract. He bats three thirty six with forty. Six home runs a one. Twenty-three RBI one hundred twenty six walks. One hundred twenty nine runs and an on base percentage of four fifty six career highs in every single category and he continues to deliver. But one thing Barry Bonds isn't is loved. Even as a child, he had a hard time making friends. He grew up in the shadow of his father, Bobby, a baseball legend in his own right berry inherited his father's drive and talent, but he couldn't earn his father's love and attention. Bobby was an abusive alcoholic. And even when Barry was emerging as a standout player in high school, Bobby rarely came to his games. That was okay with Barry. The last thing he wanted was his father showing up drunk and causing a scene Bobby shadow looms large over berry. He's the star player at Yuna Peiro Sarah high school, but his teammates really don't like him. He shows up late for practice, doesn't participate soaks, and worst of all he gets away with it. The other players think he gets a free pass because he's Bobby bonds son, and that's probably true as for Barry, he feels judged if kids are friendly. He doesn't know if they're just kissing up to him because his father's celebrity and being one of the only black kids a primarily white suburb makes. Some feel even more like an outsider, another truth and a hard one for his teammates swallowed is that berry is better than all of them. He can't skip practice and still be the best player on the field. It doesn't make him any friends, but it makes valuable and by nineteen ninety six, if you measure by salary, he is literally the most valuable player in baseball. But despite Vaughan's best efforts, it looks like the giants might not ever make it to the World Series. He grows restless and tries unsuccessfully to get himself traded to Atlanta. When Mark McGwire breaks, Roger marris's home run record in nineteen ninety eight bonds bitterness grows. He's not doing steroids at this point, but he's convinced Maguire is it's not a level playing field and he's not happy about it. Plops down on the couch the games on, but he's in a bad mood. Our Mark Maguire who is over one tonight is second here. Tell me that do eight use, why would I lie to bury its bullshit? How are we supposed to be our best? When everyone's cheating you wanna win. You wanna lose even cheaper cheat. Same bonds looks friend. Straighten the is you doing that ship don't ask, don't tell brother. Mary's your to see these turn that shit. Maybe in a parallel universe. Barry Bonds would have met Jeff Novitsky and with bonds inside knowledge and Vicky authority. They clean up baseball, but that's a tall order from galaxy far far away here on planet earth. Baseball has been dirty for a long, long time back in the day, tobacco companies hired players to endorse their products claiming that smoking or chewing tobacco gives them extra vigor by the nineteen sixties and phetamine replaced nicotine as players. Drug of choice playing one hundred sixty two games year is grueling and Greenies as they recalled help players. Keep their eyes open and on the ball, but it's a nineteen seventy that the lid gets flown off. When pitcher, Jim Belton publishes ball for an insider account of his nineteen sixty nine season playing for the Seattle pilots. He wrote openly about the impediments. They called Greenies put instead of cracking down. Baseball establishment attack downton. Things haven't changed much by the nineties. Baseball still has one of the weakest drug testing programs and sports. Congress passes the anabolic steroids control act, which places steroids in the same legal classes, amphetamines methamphetamines opium and morphine. But that doesn't mean baseball's doing anything to stop them from being used. Finally, in nineteen ninety one Commissioner favorites and takes decisive action by sending a memo. He tells each team that steroids have been added to the league's banned list, but no testing plan is announced in nineteen Ninety-two trainer. Curtis whence sloth is rested for steroids distribution years later. He admits dealing steroids over twenty major league players including Jose Canseco at the time, a rigorous drug testing program might have caught this, but baseball owners did not implement a rigorous testing program. Major league baseball is a very big business taking almost ten billion dollars a year in revenue. The job of the owners isn't to play cop, it's to protect their revenue stream and that's delicate balancing act. They can't be seen as turning a blind eye to rampant drug use. But if all the top players get thrown out of the game, who's going to buy tickets. For the owners. It's a major league headache for Victor Conte. It's a business opportunity fans want to see athletes perform at their peak and shatter records. Owners want a credible drug testing program, but they want the players to pass all the tests. What if you can find a way to ensure both. In other words, if you're going to cheat cheat well. The first thing Victor needs is credible cover. He can't exactly advertise Balch owes the place to get the finest designer steroids. He also needs a legitimate product. He can sell in bulk up till now. Bowker had been peddling services. He uses his ICP machine to analyze athletes metabolism and put together a customized program supplements. That's not something he can mass produce. He needs something that has star clients can endorse and the general public will buy in nineteen Ninety-seven. He comes up with the solution. He calls it z. according to Conti, his testing of hundreds of athletes has revealed that working out depletes, zinc and magnesium. Zia may replenishes them. He makes other dubious claims about whether they're true or not is really beside the point. It's all about appearances, and here's Conti's move. Falco's clients will attribute performance to a perfectly legal supplement. They'll do it by wearing. Zia may. Shirts, giving interviews and appearing in ads. The general public will then buys EM giving Balch, oh, eligible. Revenue stream in exchange for their promotion. Conti gives his clients free performance enhancing drugs, and he'll keep doing research and testing studying how long various drugs stay detectable in blood and urine when to take them and when to stop what drugs can mask signs of other drugs. Victor Conte has finally figured out how to make money using his greatest strengths, science and self promotion. It's simple. It's smart, and it works until IRS agent. Jeff Novitsky starts poking through his trash. Next on American skin agent, Vicky dumpster diving leads to unexpected, discovers and Victor Conte's finally in the limelight. But with that comes risks that his shadowy business might be exposed from wondering, this is American skin.

Chicago Tonight

June 16, 2020 - Full Show

"Good evening and welcome to Chicago tonight. I'm Brandon Friedman here in our North West side studio. and a pair of shorts reporting live from Portage Park, also on the city's northwest side on the show tonight. Debate over police in schools. Bill, annoying gop soon as the governor over restrictions on large gatherings. The complicated history of some Chicago monuments. And scooters on the streets soon. But I practice as we mentioned I am co anchoring tonight from Portage Park on the city's northwest side. We'll have more on how this community is starting to reopen from the covid nineteen shut down as well as deal with discussions around the events of the last two weeks, but first we toss it back to you. Thank you Paris, president. Donald trump signs an executive order on police reform following weeks of protests after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, we will prioritize federal grants from the Department of Justice to police departments that seek independent credentialing certified that they meet high standards as part of this new credentialing process Cho- calls will be banned. Except if an officers, life is at risk. While the order calls for a ban on trump, while the articles were ban on, choke, hold, it does not require it, and it is left to individual police departments to adopt the ban. The order also calls for the creation of a national database of excessive force complaints against police officers, and amid calls from some activists to to de-fund the police trump gave a full throated defense of law enforcement, saying that without police there is quote, chaos and anarchy. Down the street from the White, house US Senator Dick. Durbin argued that systemic racism does in fact plagued the criminal justice system. He was pushing back against Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas. Who asserted the opposite? Start with the premise that. When it comes to drug users, there's an equal percentage of white and black drug users. Now you look at the number arrested for the use of drugs turns out more blacks and whites. The number convicted the number prosecuted the number incarcerated dramatically larger among the African American population. Durbin also says in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. Lawmakers need to address the quote. Military structure to the police chain of command, which makes it difficult, if not impossible for officers to intervene when they observe misconduct by other officers. Illinois Attorney General Kwami Raoul tests positive for Kobe nineteen where we'll says in a statement he'd been experiencing minor symptoms over the weekend, and on the advice of his doctor was tested yesterday. The results came back positive today. Role says his symptoms remain mild and that he is continuing to manage office operations. He's the highest ranking state official to publicly announce a positive test for the corona virus, meanwhile, state health officials announced seventy two additional deaths from covid, bringing the statewide death toll near sixty four hundred officials also say more than six hundred new cases have been confirmed in the past twenty four hours for statewide total of more than one hundred thirty three thousand cases. More Illinois voters will be able to vote by mail. In the November, General Election Governor Pritzker today signed into law legislation that requires vote by mail applications to be sent to all recent voters and also lengthens voting hours at permanent polling places in a statement. Governor Pritzker says quote in the face of a pandemic massive. Upheaval and renewed calls for racial justice. It's more important than ever that Illinois can hold accountable, a truly representative and transparent government, and that means ensuring all eligible residents can wield their right to vote in a way. That does not risk their personal health. And it's a disappointing day for lovers, ballet and opera, the joffrey ballet and lyric opera, both announced they are canceling all performances for the rest of twenty twenty. The loss of the joffrey is much loved Christmas classic. The Nutcracker will cost the ballet company more than half of its annual review. Leadership Lyric said in a statement they must put the safety of guests, artists, and the company I and in separate news riot vest has also been canceled. Push back to two thousand twenty. One of not sure how much crossover there is in those audiences. Communities all across Chicago have staged rallies and protests in support of George Floyd and black lives matter not all of those communities have been black and Brown. Though portage park located on the city's northwest side is a predominantly white community that held a rally last week. The neighborhood is also home to a variety of small businesses that are struggling with the early stages of reopening parachutes today reporting from Portage Park and joins us now near the six corners intersection of Cicero Irving Park and Milwaukee you down the street Paris. I'm down the street from you by a mile and a half brandis and it's good to hear your voice, and we are hearing Puertas Park, which is a neighborhood where the discussion between police and community relations a bit more nuances. You look behind me at the shuttered portage theater here. It is a solidly middle class neighborhood home to large populations of. And first responders anchored by a few main business districts single family homes apartment buildings also notable for the public park on Irving Park road. You mentioned. It is a majority white. That also has a sizeable Hispanic Latino population in a very small African American population, which is why organizers here felt it was important that their neighborhoods show up to rally for George. Floyd and black lives matter as they did last week and organizers say it drew around a thousand participants marching through the main quarters of the neighborhood. was important for us to stand in solidarity with lack lives again. We have a very white majority community, and we wanted to make sure that the message was clear that portage and Jefferson Park's stand in solidarity with black lives. And you could see them marching down six corners, which has been a thriving commercial district with restaurants, costume shop service agencies like insurance companies and one of the local Alderman in this neighborhood, the thirty eighth wards Knicks Pizarro, who represents the western edge of Portage Park says. The Kovic shutdown will wipe out some of the small mom and pop businesses here and he contends that none of the businesses in the neighborhood were eligible for city loans from the city resiliency fund that was meant for moderate in low income neighborhoods. Portage Park was not eligible for that microbusiness fun. I was not happy about that so I guess people feel. White neighbors on the northwest side aren't deserving of any assistance. Certainly, our our business affairs feels that way. It wasn't open for everybody. It was only open for certain areas, so it was only open, basically black and brown areas and I thought that was unfair. To be clear that fund was based on moderate and low income areas, it was not broken down by any kind of racial demographic that one local business here in portage park that is gearing up for return. Is the International. Traditional Karate Center since say Mahmoud. Says, he has been offering karate lessons on zoom, but we'll welcome students back to focus on fundamentals of training, and because of socially distant guidelines, the early stage of reopening will not include actual one on one. Matches. We're not prepared for that yet. It's really controlled. By control meaning prearranged movement so that way, they can learn how to control. And there as well as get disciplined. Cut out the. BUILD UP TO SOUTH EFFECTS. And also preparing for a larger reopening is the local nondenominational liberty. Christian church, which has roped off every other pugh for social distancing and says it will plan to take temperature checks issue masks enhanced sanitizers to worshippers who are entering the building. Understanding that it's going to be a slow process to enter the building. We Really WanNA. Make it a celebration and kind of a grand reopening, so we want to have balloons outside when people outside music outside talking to people as they're waiting to come in. And we'll be back in just a bit with one notable portage park resident. The states controller Suzanne does but I brand. We toss it right back to you. Some churches have been fighting for a long time for opening. I'm sure they're eager to get back at it. However, they can thank you. And now he'll say and members of the Chicago City Council fill. Brenda's protests around the city nation are pushing for police reforms that some elected officials say should include defunding the police. Meanwhile, some aldermen want cancel the city's contract that puts police officers in Chicago public schools and City Council will also take another look at reparations here to talk about all that and tomorrow's city council meeting are Gilbert Viagra's he's Alderman of thirty six ward, which serves his who serves as Mayor Lori. Lightfoot City Council floor leader Rodrick Sawyer automated. Automated six four and co-sponsor of the Police Free Schools Ordinance, and the Reparations Ordinance and Genetic Taylor Alderman of the twentieth ward, a co-sponsor of the police schools ordinance and a supporter of defunding the police as we reported earlier on our W. W. News website. Three Aldermen have drafted Norton's to cancel the thirty three million dollar contract that puts Chicago police in CPS schools. We have two of the three with US tonight and here's what was said today. Let's look back at history a little bit. Historically when police officers were caught in the schools, they were there to protect outside threats from the students. Let's fast forward to today. Now our students are being criminalised for being students at CPS, and that's not. I can begin with you. You're proposing the city council the thirty three million dollar contract. With Chicago police. Department to serve as security in schools. The mayor says she doesn't support your move because she thinks that police officers keep kids safe she right. Well I respect the mayor's opinion. I respectfully disagree with that one portion. I believe that and that'd be get this straight I. Support the police in their initiatives to do. What's right throughout the community? I just don't think the police are prepared to act as school monitors inside school. Certain school builds the problem. Is that when a child is is becoming a delinquent estate? They've done something wrong which we all have done in our in our lives when we were children. We had somebody that would correct us. That would discipline us. That would keep us on the straight narrow. Bar Too often now. Police officers are criticizing children singing them the jail. They're putting handcuffs on them. They're detaining them for hours at a time instead of correcting them and instructing them on the right path. And this has happened. We've had over two thousand complaints a at the last time that we've had data supporting this and I think that the police leasing now. The twenty th century is should not include leasing in our schools Oliver Otterman Vegas. Do you agree with the mayor that cops in the schools? Keep keep schools safe. You know what I did when I've heard about these this ordinance, the first thing I did was call high my word to talk specifically to the lessee chairman's. And Chair women's. That our elected like us just to get their input. Because what I wanted to do was actually speak to them. They're the ones who decide whether or not. They want police in the schools and. Four high schools in my ward and all. All the folks. That they wanted be. There now that being said I, think that the police that are there when you're taking a look at a p cop versus. Someone who's trained to deal with. A high school kids. I think there's obviously some room for some improvement there, but because of the fact that LLC members are elected from saint communities every represent That's something that Davis. cited. Working closely with them, but I think that to for us to take a look at overriding the members and a decision that they make us elected officials is something that I think we need to discuss? Alderman Taylor, let's let's move onto a related topic, and that has to do with defunding the police a notion that you support. What does that look like what does that mean? That means too often. We have the police the answer to things that they shouldn't be Absolu so you'd ask. Somebody wants to commit suicide. Instead of US said in Arizona Psychiatrist. Elites when there's a disagreement among family instead of sending family social worker, we send the beliefs and saw. We're paying will system that is not serving us in the correct way, and so this thing to. Invest in the police, because historically what we're saying is black and Brown folks getting. This, so we talk about eight minutes and forty six seconds of a gentleman dying and we walked, and let's be clear police, a big deal of black and Brown people for us, because this was a system that was set up never to protect black and Brown folks it is. And so now that we got major cities around the country up in fire about police reform. We have to do something different, and I don't know that you can retrain racist, I don't know if you retry officers who talked to and believe a certain way, so look at communities of color differ in a perfect world would want the Police Service your community. So. So they know who the key is. Are they know the people who are struggling to people who have mental health is? So we gotta have a real conversation about. Leagues. Spans on forty percent of the city budget on police, we spend a billion dollars in million dollars allowance over the years that taxpayers on the hook for him. Where'd tax payers so? We need to have a real conversation. About data. Leaks, automobile goes. You're the mayor's floor leader as we mentioned, she does not support cancelling the contract or defunding the police. Let's listen to what she had to say. This issue of defunding the police when I hear that what I hear is people. Rightfully offended by the fact that we have not invested enough and communities and I've been very clear about this Iran on this. I like to think I got elected because Iran us. We have to bring resources and investments to neighborhoods and communities that have been without an ounce of investment for decades. Alderman got saw. The mayor has said she wants to implement police performs. Some police reforms within ninety days. Is that going to be enough to really make a big difference? We, gotTa? Start somewhere you know I. Last two weeks last week I was on the west side with black and brown elected officials, and I was there with Congressman Davis Congressman Garcia and Congressman Davison a statement that there's buildings on the west side that have been. That have not been redeveloped since one thousand nine sixty that is a crime that we have not invested in the south and West sides of the city while our central business district has flourished. Let me tell you. There's thirty two members on the council that are black and Brown. I can tell you that we have to make sure that this budget. Has Resources coming to these communities, and that's why one of the mayor's initiative prisoners issues most best south west. And we want to take a look at investing in the south west of the city. She's dedicated. Actually we dedicate seven hundred fifty million dollars. We have to we have challenge the corporations and developers to follow suit and invest in these communities. We cannot be a tale of two cities, and for far too long. There has not been developed a no south and west side of the city, and so that's that's what I'm focused on as chairman of economic capital technology, and although I do not represent the south. Side of City I understand I understand it. Those communities have suffered for far too long and I'll be damned if that's. My Watch Ullivan Sawyer along those lines. You were pushing for a commission to study reparations. Instead the mayor wants. that. Task to be done by a city council subcommittee. What do you mean by reparations? Reparations is something that's quite complicated when I talked to. People have reparations. They think is just a check. That's far from what the full context! is their five core values reparations. Only one of them is renumeration that means getting money nets more of a federal conversation I believe that has certain things that we can do on a local level to discuss the repair of the descendants of enslaved people. Part of which is language, I usually say the word slave lot and one of the things I've stopped stopped saying safe because we were never slaves, we were enslaved, and that's a big difference. Just those things to talk about how you use your mindset. How you how you talk about yourself as a black person, some of the things that I want to get to the forefront so that we can repair. And that other people can see that There's a need for this and we just want be on an equal playing field with everyone else When we're the highest or the top of every negative category and bottom of every positive category, it has to be a reason behind that and I think the reason is because lot of it's because we're descendants of enslaved people, and we still have these slave mentality. And wants to ourselves from that, and that's why I want to continue the discussion on reparations, and I'm actually happy to have an as a subcommittee that means we can continue to conversation. We can take on the role. We don't have any constraints as relates to a commission formation, which would probably take another year or two to get situated. We can get on a road next month. We're going to start having hearings about bringing it. Professionals talk about what reparations is on the local level. and. That's what we'll have to lean it Alderman. Governor via via Alderman Rodrick, Sawyer and Alderman John Taylor. Thank you all for joining us very much. We appreciate it. And we'll have more on the debate over keeping police officers in Chicago public schools later in tonight's program and up next Amanda, they key with details about a GOP lawsuit against governor, but first a look at the weather. Various businesses religious organizations, and even legislators have sued governor Jay Pritzker over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but the Illinois Republican Party says its Lawsuit Is Different Mad Vicky joins us now with more Amanda Brenda's. We're legally able to go shopping. As long as everyone wears a mask or also able now to dine out as long as it's ALFRESCO, but there are still a lot of state mandated restrictions in place to help prevent the spread of the corona virus, including a ban on gatherings of more than ten people there. There are couple of exceptions like for religious services, and although it's not explicitly explicitly, that is listed in the governor's executive order also exemptions for protests like those we've seen in the past couple of weeks. The federal lawsuit brought by the Illinois Republican Party. Says those carve outs are a first amendment double standard that not including political parties in those exemptions prevents the GOP from doing its work state Republican Party chairman. Tim Schneider says it's incandescent hypocrisy that governor. Pritzker has defied his own order by attending large gatherings and rallies. Not Practicing social distancing. Meanwhile has cove in nineteen executive, orders Ban Illinois Republicans and other groups from gathering groups fired then tat. The Republican Party will not sit idly by while the governor of Illinois, applies one rule for himself and his political allies in another role for everyone else. Governor Pritzker has he can part in protests, and then since the killing of George Floyd in a statement, the governor's office says his executive order is about protecting the public health and this lawsuit is about scoring political points in criticizing civil rights protests, supporting the black lives matter movement. Now Schneider says he believes that those protesting have the right to do so also says he believes in the cause against the agreed. Just murder of Floyd says Republicans just want the same rights especially before election time now. Runs including on occasion Schneider himself did gather in large groups to demonstrate against the governor's executive order previously, and as the governor appoints out. They did not face legal repercussions for that attorneys representing the GOP say people shouldn't have to live in fear of a gubernatorial game day. Choice about renae order will or won't be in force. People should not have to risk going to jail to exercise their first. Amendment Rights. And that's the situation. We're in right now. that. If people want to gather in a group larger than ten. They may get a free pass that day. or they may be subject to police enforcement. Meanwhile the States hotel industry also going public with its efforts to get governor Printz Kerr to ease up on his executive order now this is far more cordial. Then taking court action, instead of the defined number of people allowed to gather hotels want to be allowed to fill large ballrooms and event facilities at half capacity. All of Illinois right now is currently on track to move to phased four next month. When gatherings of up to fifty people will be allowed. The governor's plan doesn't move to the next and final phase, however until there's a vaccine or treatment for the coronavirus. And so we can be safe for for quite some time and what we're seeing business that on the books are ready through quarter, three and quarter, four, twenty twenty, but even quarter one of twenty twenty one. We're hearing meeting planners say. The all the message were getting from. The governor's office is that we're not going to be able to hold our event in Illinois so we need to cancel now? Head of the State Hotel Association Michael. Jacobson says if the governor doesn't get less rigid with those phase four limitations. What we're temporary furloughs will become permanent offs. Many of the hotels that have suspended their operations will decide not to reopen, and then we really become a at risk for property defaults. When you look at things like the property taxes in their loans, those are continuing to crew when they're zero revenue coming in the door. Now the governor's office says his reopens Fringy thus far has worked in reducing covid nineteen cases, spokesman says the governor is willing to burn to work with industries like the hotels, but plans junior defeat within his reopening framework, meanwhile, the day that barflies and bar owners have long been waiting for ours in breweries can reopen to outdoor customers starting tomorrow, then the Lakefront Trail, personally opening on Monday still no word yet, though on the bloomingdale trail, the six Oh six lakefront itself in its beaches back to you, Brenda. Tomorrow for at least bars in breweries, Amanda thank, you. Still to come on tonight. We CBS news even cut his contract. Hear both sides on the fight over police in schools. Christopher? Columbus statues are being vandalized in Chicago and elsewhere. In the city's plan for the return of the scooter. But first we check back in with parachutes in portage park on the northwest side where he's joined by the Illinois Comptroller for a look at the state's budget Paris. Yes. Right brand is it's Illinois State Controller Susanna Mendoza joining us now here in Portage Park. Thank you so much for being here. The neighborhood. It's great to be here now, so the state's been close to six hundred million dollars right now. I I'm sorry. Six hundred million on covid related costs said. Do you anticipate a further cost down the road? How much those of course I mean we continue every day to make sure that were seeing enough protective equipment that P p. e. as everyone has become very familiar with any other needs that are related Cova da We did receive about three and a half billion dollars from the federal government that can be you specifically for covid related, so the money that you just mentioned is. Perfectly allowable expenses under the the cares act so you've you've you six? Hundred million of that will will use the entire three point five billion can't be allocated anything else. That's the problem with that three and a half billion. It's welcome, but a what what? We're finding to be an incredible challenges at the State of Illinois. It's not that we're going to need three and a half billion dollars worth of. Its it's that we have lost tremendous amount of revenue because of lost revenues last tax Texas coming, and you've seen so many businesses go out of business or people are unemployed. Are there for the State of Illinois has lost significant tax revenue coming into our coffers. That is where we need the help that three and a half billion could go towards. Paying the one point seven billion of whole that was just blown in this year's budget because of lost tax revenue right now, we're not allowed to use it for that, but I'm hoping that the federal guidelines change, and so that would just take a federal law to to allow that. There's no creative accounting you can do. Accounting, of course, they have to abide by the letter of the law, which we are and anything that is eligible for covid related allowable expenses is being charged to that, but again our biggest. Problem is into Kobe expenses that need to be made. It is actually the loss directly related to Cova Kovin impacting art lost revenues, and that is something that's separate from the financial problems that we've had in the past. You know I mean you've heard these arguments that were asking for bail outs from the federal government, but we're not I mean I'm certainly not asking the federal government to help us make up for the damage that you know Democrats and Republicans over many years finances. We were fixing those problems as you've interviewed me many times about this, but While, we were finally starting to see some white between the trees. Kovac nineteen came, and it blew. What is likely going to be about a seven billion dollar bill back? On top of the seven billion we had before the pandemic. So that's where we need the federal government's health and we're not asking for a handout look Illinois donor state along with New York and Connecticut loss I should say California in our states for many years have been paying more than our fair share to the federal government. We're asking them to help. Make his whole for this coach. In addition to that, there is a up to five billion dollars. The very short term loan available from the Federal Treasury. How is that going to work? So we've already taken advantage of about one point two billion of that unfortunately, because not only did cove. Of course directly impact, our revenues already mentioned that the fact that the federal government postponed tax filing season, which is normally in April so in April. That's where we see an influx of dollars that allows us to kind of keep our bills getting paid. But this year that was moved until July so our fiscal year ended with over billion dollars worth of a whole in lost tax revenue. Therefore, we had to go to the government and actually borrow one point two billion dollars from them at about three point eight five percent. I'm going to use some of that to pay down. Bills at are paying twelve percent interest on, so it's. It's not all three and a half. You know increase in debt here, but it's it's a terrible situation whenever we have to borrow, but given the financial hit that we've taken as a state which is tremendous. There's really no other choice right now. You mentioned the backlog of bills and could grow up to about four billion when when this has happened, it's always social service agencies that. That wait six months a year to get paid what we've seen being in the neighborhood or the last three months of social service agencies are picking up the slack because people are unemployed. So how do you navigate cutting checks for social service agencies? When you gotTa Triage Right now? Yeah, well, thank you for that. Since I took office in December of two thousand sixteen. I change that. That narrative, so it used to be that social service agencies waited six to nine months to get paid, and I've prioritized on day one. We're making sure that nursing homes get paid. No constituency has been hurt worse during Cova Nineteen. The nursing homes are that whole industry, and their continued to get paid as quickly as humanly possible there at the front of the line in payments from. Controller. Even during. Before when we had the budget crisis, but even more so right now for Serie Kobe also social service agencies it. They're having to pick up so much more slack. They don't wait more than twenty four to forty eight hours from when the payments throughout the airports within who does that leave behind the WHO gets paid less well. There's always going to be someone, but unfortunately you. You Know My job and certainly during difficult times, and we're going through the worst of possible times right now to make sure that the people who are most vulnerable, get the resources that they need as quickly as possible and those that can wait that can weather that storm. A little bit better are going to have to go to the back of Wine Phil eventually get paid. But right now the priority is big wants. To. To go to the back of computer technology consultants right, and it depends i. mean if it's critical computer program prioritize to make sure that the vulnerable populations are getting the money they need. But if it's you know some some other wishlist project, it's going to go to the back of the line and I'll tell you what else is. Interest Payments I. Don't pay interest on interest. That's going to go to the back line. I need to make sure that I'm either paying. Frontline providers or paying down bills that are accruing late payment interest penalties. You know twelve percent right? That's the best use of taxpayer money I. WanNa make sure we continue to try to squeeze blood out of Iraq and I think that my office has gained a reputation for doing that as well as anybody ever could. Controller, Susanna Mendoza, thanks for joining us here in your home neighborhood of Puertas Park. All, right, we'll be back with more from park in a bit et British. We toss it right back to you complicated problems to get your arms around their Paris. Thank you. Up next the debate over keeping police officers in Chicago public schools. Earlier in the program, we heard a few Alderman discussed the Police Free Schools Ordinance, which would eliminate the contract between the Chicago Police Department and the. Public School district, thus removing police officers from school buildings, supporters argue the money from that contract could instead fund additional nurses counselors in case, managers schools, but the mayor has said she intends to keep police officers in schools. Joining us to hear more about policing in schools are will weaver's a history teacher at Kenwood, Academy High School and Officer George Newell who currently an Alderman Liaison with the Chicago Police Department in two thousand, nine to twenty, one, thousand, nine hundred, and he was an officer working at Percy Julian. Highschool Gentlemen, welcome both of you to Chicago tonight. Thanks for joining us. So. Many students students that we are hearing from her also among those who are calling for an end of that contract between CPI and CPS. Caleb read is among them. He's a student at matter. High School at a press conference today with voices. That's a youth advocacy group. He talks about his experience with police in schools. Here's a look at what he said. My Sophomore Year in high school I was arrested for a basketball game I didn't have. My wife signed the police station six hours. It was a new was a right at all, but. Essay I was anchoring foods I. wanted to give reaction. I wanted to so bad, but I knew if I did do that. It would just make the situation worse. Well waivers. Let's start with you, please. What is your reaction when you hear Caleb? Story just then. I'm familiar with that. Have a lot of students who feel the same way on my classroom. We do discuss the issue policing when it comes to slavery when it comes to slavery and overtime period you know the students students discuss these things read articles, and when I opened up the classroom discuss. We have talked talking circle circles, which is therapeutic to my students so when they do discuss these things they have very very similar experiences on their anxious and and it just shows that there's a lack of trust there's there's no trust in policing happens so school just damages the learning environment. Officer Newell You worked a school resource officer as we mentioned at Juliet. High School on the South side for ten years. How would you describe your relationship with students? Rig reported students. Had relationships along I had. Made relationships with those students in staff. They trusted me Oh I did sit in the hallways. I mean I. Did sit in office. Walk the hallways also of about. Things that were born on in their neighborhood off about sporkes so when it was time for me to. The Authority figure of they complied. When in what can you give us? An example of what kind of cases required you to be like you said as an authority, figure and function more as a cop. Will I mean? We Are Large Gang Vice? Where unfortunately we had arrests thirty kids. Sometimes, we had to rest ten to fifteen kids and. Security of detainees, kids and I. was. Able to get into calmed down because I had A. May relationships with these kids now. CPS says that last summer it asked LSE's local school councils decide whether or not they wanted to maintain school resource, officer or SRO program now seventy two out of ninety three district run high highschools that seventy seven percent. Those are the ones that have the SRO's and CPS says that last summer all seventy two voted to keep the school resource officers in their school for the school year. That just ends this week. Well, weavers. Why do you think schools opted to keep SRO's? Given all turn right so you have three million dollars actual a police schools, but it went still don't want them. There is no alternative and so we need to find alternatives. Schools don't want the police officers in schools while not have social justice programs to defuse situations where you get in the thirty gang fights. Thirty thirty people fight sin. Why don't you have social workers for or in school? Psychologist for students who are traumatize five minutes inside and outside of school. Why not have that? Why? Why do we have to always have cops in the in the school to be the dog VR when when we diffuse situations beforehand when it comes to. Our schools assigning that they should. They should definitely be given. Alternative, not just of leasing and they weren't given that. Voice so the Shriver Center on Poverty Law Did a study on. In CPS in two thousand seventeen. Finding that as of April thousand, sixteen, Sixty seven percent of officers were being investigated for complaints. And they were being investigated of course by the Independent Police Review Authority at the time thirty one percent have three or more Ibra Complaints, eleven percent have ten or more Ibra Complaints Officer Newell what's Your Reaction To that. Why should students feel safe around police officers in their schools based on that information? Well like I said before. It's not a question of. If police officers should be in school is the right police offices they should be. Never had a problem with on soon like I say complying with my direction. And it's about again. A making relationships with these rooms it is is the same way with teachers is the same way with security is the same way with administration. Of course if you seen your office all day. And never have any interaction with these kids. When. It's time for you to ask them to do some follow direction. Of course they're not going to comply. They don't know. Is the same way when in a classroom in the hallways, but if you again? Talk to the kids ask them what's going on in the neighborhood or they tell you what's going on in the neighborhood or talk to him about sports, whatever they interest star when it is time, it is just like when you're in when it's time to ask so most of the time. But. So. Schools. Of. Drug activities gang activities. You may have a student from a neighborhood that might. Indirectly affect the climbing on school. or Let's just talk about if you have an active shooter situation, a life, threatening situation and minutes are critical. You can't wait for five minutes for. A squad cars or police to come from. A distance away from NASCAR well. Mayor Lightfoot, when asked about taking copd out of CPS. This is what she had to say. Let's take a listen. Yeah? We're going to do that Unfortunately, we need security in our schools. We spent a lot of time a year ago. Working through challenges that we had seen with police officers in Schools I. Think we've got a very good track record of this school year of making sure that CPI is in control that officers are there for a limited purpose, but CPS personnel will deal with. Front facing issues regarding students. And unfortunately we don't have a whole lot of time left, but we'll weavers about you know twenty thirty seconds. Would you agree with the mayor statement there that the use of CPI in schools has been limited. Nano agree with that at all on in a bathtub. Walkout school a handcuffs and that's that's very detrimental to our students on welfare. Lemaire actually says she's four Social Justice Program, so I don't understand why this is A. This is a huge issue. If you want a better schools, you want central schools. Social justice programs in psychologists and trauma specialists in the school so that you can diffuse these issues and we won't have to depend on. Cops in in the school so much then students will be able to trust the individuals in those schools to to come to them in diffusing situations on PD in schools, a lot more on this to come starting with city council tomorrow. I'm sure in the meantime. My thanks to will weavers in officer, George new thanks to you both. Thank you. Christopher Columbus is without a doubt. Significant figure his four voyages from Europe to the America is more than five hundred years ago, triggered an age of exploration and colonization, but the Italian explorer carries a controversial legacy, now monuments depicting Columbus are targets for vandalism Chicago, tonight's Evan. Garcia visited some of the city's controversial monuments. At Minnesota state capitol, he was torn down in Boston beheaded. Statues of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus are coming down across the country amid civil unrest over the death of George Floyd. The Columbus Statue in Chicago's grant park is still standing. Although it was recently, spray painted and splattered with red paint. Onlookers had differing opinions I don't think that people should have trust the monument. Christopher Columbus discovered America. It is what it is. You don't like it and get the history, but you don't come up here. You don't put paint and vandalizing. That's wrong. Why other people have to come here from other places, countries state. I've believe that all confederates imperialist and colonist statue should be torn down. I think that's literally the least. The city can do to combat racism. I think there's there's so much more that needs to be done. West of the loop in little Italy's or go park, this Columbus statue was vandalized the previous night, according to a park district employees guarding it in his truck. Christopher Columbus today represents the beginning of colonization and genocide that this country was founded on he when he arrived, not only did he enslave and kill native people, but he also set the stage for the beginning of slavery, and so he's responsible in our minds for that violent negative history. American Indian Center, Executive Director Heather. Miller disagrees with the statues, due to Columbus's enslavement and killing of indigenous people in the Caribbean. But in a statement, the president of the joint, Civic Committee of Italian Americans called vandalism of Columbus statues acts of hate against Italian Americans, adding the destruction of the Christopher Columbus. Statues would be a hate crime against Italian Americans, the folklore around him as discovery on quote, unquote, the new world was something that was latched onto by Italian Americans to really sort of stake, their own sort of ethnic claim to an American identity Chicago. History Museum, Assistant. Curator Julius Jones says monuments can take on new meanings. Built. So this is Balbo Monument. It was given to Chicago in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, three by Benito Mussolini the Fascist dictator of Italy. The monument commemorates the nineteen thirty three transatlantic flight by Aviator Italo Balbo from Italy to Chicago for the world's fair one of the reasons why the mom is still standing is because it was ultimately decided that the monument was a commemoration of this fight across the Atlantic what separated from what happened after that with? Fascist. Italy joining accidents and fighting the war. Some cities are formally removing the Columbus statues whether that happens in Chicago remains unseen. One thing that isn't going away. Is the conversation surrounding controversial monuments. FOR CHICAGO TONIGHT! This is having Gercy. And you can visit our website to watch an extended version of this story that includes confederate mound, a controversial memorial to confederate soldiers on the south side. And now we check back in with parachutes, his Co anchoring tonight from portage park on Chicago's northwest side Hey Paris. A brand we're joined now by Greg Kojak Chairman of the Polish American Association based right here in Puerto Park, their social service organization that's been around for almost one hundred years now. Ninety eight years provides everything from counseling to immigration services. Good to have you here, 'cause. We we've talked about how covid nineteen his impact to different communities African American Hispanic Latino. What about the Polish American community? Yeah, so being in the social services space it's it's actually been almost a double whammy for us. We have to adapt to kind of social service programs that we have are pretty much client facing in a in a confined environment, so we have classrooms. We have counseling services. We have also domestic violence in a homeless shelter. All those aspects are very close quarters, so we've had to try to figure out how to keep our. Our programs running efficiently and safely so that way people get the kind of resources that they need. The second biggest challenge is obviously the funding, so we rely heavily on City Chicago the State of Illinois funding in a lot of that funding has been redirected towards cove, resources, and how to manage the covid spread, and so therefore we're kind of like on a delay to try to get some of that funding back in. You heard the controller saying she wants to prioritize social service agencies. What's the status of the funding that you're allocated from the state? So what we're doing is. We're trying to get our allocations and kind of keep pushing forward. You know at this point. It's kind of one of those things where we just keep asking and keep asking. Keep asking. These are unprecedented times. We've all been saying for a long time now and we have to try to figure it out, so we're relying on our. Our local representatives to help us through this whole process, and also some of our local lenders that are kind of bridging that gap to help us manage this time until we get to the new norm. What are the biggest needs for the Polish American community that you serve right now? Yes, so what we're seeing is education is a is a big one substance, substance abuse domestic violence. We also have a nursing program which has been really successful. Over the years. We trained nurses to go through the whole certification process that has to be on hold obviously in. You can't do close. Connections that way, and so we're working through that to try to get all these resources back online as quickly as we can to provide like we've been providing ninety eight years to our community, sea mentioned increase, substance, abuse and mental health issues Gives it a specific. What's happening in that space? Is it just because of the shutdown because of unemployment that that people are just turning to substances? Yeah, it's it's all the above I. Mean it's a it's a very high stress level, and if you're confined to your own apartment or Condo or you don't know if if you're going to be able to stay in your own apartment, there's multi levels of stress and so that you know sometimes is a triggering mechanism for people, so we're seeing that you know. You're trying to find an outlet. You're trying to find a resource. You're trying to find someone that you can communicate with, and that's where we're stepping into. How do you counsel that in the age of not being able to release each other in person? Yes, so we're looking at is technology. technology has helped us come through this whole process in finding ways. Ways to do video conference we obviously have to make sure that everything is hip compliant and making sure that it's legal to do it that way, but we are leaning towards technology to help us bridge that gap so so we can get through this process all right Greg Kojak chairman the Polish American Association. Thank you so much for being. Here's our. And Brennan will wrap it up here from Puerto Park. With some final thoughts just a bit, but now we toss it back to you. That's right Paris. We'll see shortly up next though what to expect from Chicago's second roll out of scooters this summer. Don't ever Miss Chicago tonight. Subscribe to our podcast. Get a daily download of our show delivered to your desktop or mobile device. Go to WTT, W DOT com slash Chicago tonight, podcast and subscribe. Despite, the pandemic scooters will return to Chicago streets this summer, and in droves, the Chicago Department of Transportation says the second pilot program aims to have ten thousand scooters ready to rent around the city. That's four times more than last year's twenty five hundred, but advocates want to be sure that they are not just concentrated in some neighborhoods here with more is Courtney cobs assistant editor at street's blog, CHICAGO. Nonprofit transportation new site. Welcome back to Chicago Courtney. inkster heavy, so the city is calling for all vendors to place fifty percent of their scooters in a large part of the city, and it's defined as an equity priority areas the area on the city's west and south sides outlined in blue on this map. There's been some criticism that similar goals were not met last year according. How do you think they can do better? I think we need to expand the officers or people who do not have access to debit cards in credit cards so expanding ways that you can access the program without needing a accord or don't have. Kids. And so there are ten private companies who provided scooters last time that are eligible to apply for the three contracts and due to mergers, there are only nine companies in the running those include, lift lime and ride. What do you hope these companies will do differently this time around? I hope that they will make a concerted effort to ensure that users know how to. Ride defensively in the city, and I hope that they do a great job of leading people from all parts of the city, though that they're transportation option during this time of covid nineteen, so then you'd say they could do more to train customers. Yeah for sure on and also make sure they're warming customers of their sanitation practices or things that they can do to stay safe while they're riding scooters. And of course, this is happening during pandemic. What are your thoughts about? The city is planned to make sure that. Grow virus isn't spread through the shared scooter. Has a lot of education for the customer, so wash your hands beforehand. Maybe even bring your own sanitizing wives, or you're rubbing alcohol every time to diy. but also ensuring that people have access to Zilla to wash their hands. They're done. I was just going to say there's the area that cannot be used. Though, of course, it's the Lakefront and downtown They are also not allowed in the CD, and so that area is west to holstead the northern and southern boundaries, being Chicago Avenue on the North Roosevelt Road on the south. What do you think of that limitation? The boundary area for now town is way too large across the city are interested in using the scooters, and they're planning on people who were live downtown. Who have their own personal? In we haven't seen any negative effects of that. Are you not concerned then that by allowing them downtown Do we end up with the problem of all of them? Just being dropped off downtown. Like. A lot of people are visiting downtown the same way. Before crew pandemic so I, feel like they will be evenly distributed across the city in terms of how people travel how they naturally travel. And I understand that you have yet to ride a scooter. You're a bike, person but the some of the bikes have seats now. Do you think you'd be giving us a try? Yes he down to sit on one of the suitors in tried out. Not Up for standing on the scooter. Not so much, okay, all right thanks to coordinate Courtney COBS, assistant editor streets block Chicago, thanks for joining us. And we're joined again by parish shuts. Who spent the day reporting in portage park on Chicago's northwest side Paris you you just spoke with. Illinois controllers does earlier tonight. What was your biggest takeaway from that conversation with her? Well Go away go to that point about social service agencies getting prioritized payments you know, remember during the two year budget impasse under former governor Bruce Rounder, there were social service agencies like Catholic Charities Lutheran Social Services that were waiting nine months to get paid. They were they were saying they couldn't serve the people. They serve handing out meals, shelters, and and as you've seen here with unemployment where it's at with. Perhaps. A storm coming of victims or foreclosures, these social service agencies are the only things picking up the slack right now, and we'll have to see how the state's going to be able to fund them. As the state struggles with massive massive shortfalls and structural problems. So this is something we all have to watch over the next year. and brands I missed some of this discussion being in the field today the issue of police in Chicago, public schools. What where do you think that's going right now I think it's going to be A. A pretty big fight, right? You know we'll see how it starts tomorrow during city council, but you know a couple of interesting things you know. A lot of folks say that last summer. When they had when they had the vote, they all felt rushed in a hurry, but all of them voted to keep the sorrows. The school resource officers I spoke with one principal who school voted to keep them, and you know gave me the explanation that it is a safe environment for young people for students to be in contact with a police officer. And to get to know that officer versus outside of the school, and if something is going on in, an officer should be near there. Maybe it's. It's not having the same experience. So many young people report having which is a negative first impression or negative experience with a police officer. This gives them a different place to come in contact with them so. So obviously a lot more to come on that I don't think that story is GonNa go away anytime soon. Paris but that is our show for this Tuesday night.

Villes name for the Saturday before Labor Day which we celebrate here in the womb room room actually it's our fourth annual Labor Day celebrations in Noblesville Four. Aw Labor days ago. I felt my usual Labor Day melancholy bittersweet little bit happy a little bit sad you know like any public holiday Labor Day's is good and excuses any to break out the booze and barbecues but tragically. It also marks the end of summer and you know might not happy such a big deal in California but for Philadelphia Girl like me. It marked time. Time for Labor schoolwork winter looming on ominously a had had moreover the whole Labor theme actually never seemed to be a genuine celebration doc of we. The people nation the ninety nine percent. They're unreal workers. I'm by the way that includes sex workers. The Best Workers Labor Day is really more of a paltry pacifier from the one percent. The owners the greedy American oligarchs and CEO's one one measly Monday when we don't have to work for the man but are expected to consume high-calorie foods that are also very highly processed and usually from companies stores stores like Walmart and watching military style parades if not actual military as we. I did have a military parade today with the funeral of war hero and warmonger John Arcane and then we have to have those boring hypocritical speeches about about how this point zero zero one percent cares about the rest of us not the capitalism capitalism actually even takes a holiday of course not not corporate greed on the contrary to fully exploit the large numbers his of Non Laboring Laborers Aka Potential Customers Labor Day is a huge retail sales weekend that's ironically many laborers employed in retail which makes up over twenty four percent of. US jobs well. They're laboring and working longer hours hours and now with the trump is of course who. We have gagged and we are politely giving Him Pussy as well as Bill Clinton nestled between his legs at least Buildings Speaker McCain he the role and looking good. I think we'll talk more about that. But but Yeah now with the trump is it's worse than ever for Labor labor unions are being phased out and you know one conservative Supreme Court ruling at a time the stock market work it might be high but the benefits are not trickling down to the Working People let alone alone those who are out of work and blocking or who don't have real jobs or benefits but yeah not too many jobs but work work work all the time in the twenty four seven digital economy and what about sex workers. Sex workers are workers to. Can I get an amen. Amen the bachelor women. ooh I don't know maybe most and the trump is knows this don't shoe and yet do we ever hear about sex workers being celebrated on Labor Day. No so here in Bonobo Ville. We'd rather read read between the lips and the lies to find very similar onto Mata poetic but far more suitable and let us say but Noboa esque name for the holiday. Hey this early September weekend off or semi off from the daily Grind thus Labor Day is Labor Day in Bonobo Ville actually the Saturday before always Labia Day though Israel so whether you have hi Labia and or whether you just likely BIA maybe or maybe you're just kind of Labia curious. Maybe you you want to know how to touch Labia. I don't know but This is a great holiday holiday for you may great new holiday blossom yes indeed Labia Labia Day. Just like a brilliant Georgia. Oh Keith Flower Q.. Georgia Yoki flour there. We go look at. If you're watching you can see this beautiful innocent flower with its Taurus in its Labia and it's Sebnem that's right. Sometimes you've got these Labia that get over them so it's kind purley but yes. This holiday that we celebrate is a a appreciation of those ubiquitous. Pretty common like every woman has them and actually four of them. That's how many many there are. But it's very mysterious right. Usually get to see these Labia Abia not usually and almost always fabulous. I don't know why I say almost I guess they're always this fabulous. 'cause I always think maybe there's some that aren't but they're all different just like faces just like people and the these fabulous fleshy doors to female pleasure. They are doors in a way And I am now demonstrating on a piece of art by Bill Pay. Hey sack of beautiful labia. I'm GonNa show you got fries later but I also have the wondrous vulva puppet here and you know these are the fleshy doors to pleasure as well as Labor. That's right this is where a lady goes into. Labor and Pearls aren't the thing that comes Gaulle fucking baby and so labor brings pain ladies bring pleasure take a ladies. Nether Lips do go into Labor along with the rest of her reproductive system in giving giving birth which can be painful and very handsome may turn on. Maybe it is turn you keep interrupting. I said good epidurals. Sorry EPA Durkan's. Thank me later because I will spank you later in Hollywood. I'm doing it. Yeah well sometimes doctors give that stuff you know Caesarians epidurals little all too readily I dunno natural birth has its benefits but yeah I mean Labia are not just for pain and birth and Procreation Labia for Recreation Leisure Fleischer tease. They please the open the close they squeeze the fluid and they squirt and they explode in ecstasy. You know they're part of the the whole thing. I don't know if they're the leading lady like the Taurus you would say as the leading lady. That's where the eight thousand nerve endings are right. But the Labia are definitely very important supporting actresses yes as we have the Labia Majora the sort of outer lips I say sort of because on some women the inner lips or the Labia minora shown by the gold here are actually protruding more within the outer lips and in some the outer lips close in so that the Labia Minora don't even show unless Woman is very turned on and they open like a flower. So thank you Dorie Lane for your Wondrous Vulva puppet twenty years so Yeah yeah there's many many different kinds of Labia and We're going to explore all these different Labia but one thing is certain they are the doors to a ladies passion and it's interesting interesting because In Ireland they have these churches and over the door. You're of the church is a representative of Labia. It's called the Sheila New Gig. Can we know that's not over the door over the door. The gargoyles there you go see. This is an Irish goddess. Opening up her Labia for what well experts argue about that. Whether it's to scare away evil or I feel it's to invite you into the doors of the sanctuary you could say it's the pearly gates especially where those pearls. Yeah when the pearls are involved they are then perhaps the Labia are indeed. Read the pearly gates and I think it's true that you know these old God almost prehistoric carvings As well as modern art it reminds us of something that we keep secret and on Labor Day we show it. I'm I'm we talk about it pussy. Talk Pussy Talk Me. You could send Pussy Talk Right. And so that's what we're going to do here in the womb room which is what we always call this very special little Komelia Erotica Theater Space in Bonobo Ville Pleasure Palace that's right and Measure Pal so if the Labia are the doors then to the Ladies Pleasure Palace then the clitorises the doorbell and a gentleman gentleman or lady who wants to be nice always rings a ladies Doorbell before he enters her pleasure palace right right. She knew how to deal with that Clitoris Labia very very important and not very clear. Really we don't learn this in business. They shut yeah.

Okay and It's a book called Pussy a Reclamation Regina Thomas Thomas our anyway it's a it's a cool book I mean. There are a lot of cool pussy books. I myself was transformed by this book. Books Sex for one which was originally called liberating masturbation by Dr Betty. Dodson Mind Mentor and it really. Because this book told me where my Labia were where my clitoris was. I could give myself an orgasm. I mean in those days porn. You had to watch in a movie theater. Believe it or not and I wasn't about to go there. I didn't learn anything from porn. I had boyfriends had sex and they had orgasms Adams. I had a good time. I didn't know what an orgasm was but it took looking at a diagram. Do we have a diagram the diagram yeah seriously. I'm a diagram Kinda Gal. I know a lot of people are just let me just cereal pussy but but it took okay. This is where my mentor. Is's this is the whole this is the Labia and you know how to touch Gracia and how you know give yourself. Pleasure is kind of spelled spelled out and that really gave me my first orgasm so I always say that Dr Betty Dodson did it for me. It was yeah because I had this boyfriend I even remember his name either. Vander tack back my Sophomore Year. At Yale I was nineteen years old and I never had an orgasm and he had his orgasm he left and I picked up this. This book was not in my class. Right aft he didn't know in those days I don't even know if you knew women had orgasms you know and he was cool free Labia and I looked at this book and I went. Wow this is what I'm supposed to do. I'm supposed to touch these outer areas. That are really sensitive stimulant. It's not all happening inside. I mean it's all great eight to take a big cock. We love it. It looks exciting and it is exciting but most of most women's pleasure her center nerve endings are on the outside. You know even you know everything is kind of related to the click. The Labia are the doors that go up to the Clinton and the g spot is the inside of the claim. It's like where's my pussy. Puppets sure yeah you know. I'm on just sell out the Jewish Jewish Pussy g-spot with you know these his fingers in here. What you really doing is going behind the clitoris? And that's one reason it feels so good I mean there's many reasons romance adventure pleasure but there's also geography not and that's what I learned from Betty Dodson's book and I think your friend Christina. Learn a lot from this book. And it's kind of turned on a lot of women this pussy book. So so Labor Day reclaim your pussy absolutely and I mean it. It wasn't that I changed my life because my life changed when I married Max Song. That's what changed my life but I did learn something and she studied at more university and I I went there to. I'm one of the things I learned was about this myth of percents meaning. Do you know the goddess percents any. Yes she's well. You told me. I only only known from the story of how. She became the goddess of the underworld by eating the pomegranate seeds. I don't know any of the stories about her. Well that's the main story and she. She is a beautiful maiden the daughter of Dimitur who is the goddess of the Earth and is out gathering flowers with her girlfriends when Haiti's the king of the underworld flies by on his chariot and ravishes. Her that's what it said in my Greek week mythology book as a little kid. But then I learned that that meant raped. And he takes her down to his abode in the underworld and he won't let her go and traffic. Yeah well I thought it was certainly a significant one and Denver. The mother of course is just so upset and she appeals to her brother brother who is also Haiti's brother by the way Haiti's her brother. This is a wrongful so of course it's all in the family and the Greeks had a a serious deep understanding of this. They had an understanding of the pleasure and the pain of sex in human life and so yeah Haiti's was Democrats brother and and he raped her daughter and he took her down to his lair. In the underworld where everybody's dead Ed. So it was really like double trouble and She asked her for the. You know the oldest brothers Zeus like like you know. Give me my daughter back. Yeah man no can. Do you know Patriarchy hunting. You gotta just roll with it and she was this just so upset and at that time world was always beautiful spring and summer and and this was the first winter demeanor was just so depressed. disconsolate that she she just turned the earth to ship inside of like what might happen. If we really do steal our eco- sexual power from the earth and the earth might go to ship. It is going ship in a way definitely by the way it was doing that in In this myth and and there was nothing anyone could do to cheer her up she went to this place called looses which some of you might have heard of this place. In Ancient Greece where women would have his ecstatic static rights and at that time it was just a little village and she stayed with some people and there was a goddess. There named Balbo and Balbo was an old woman called the crown. All right. That's right. There is Balbo. This is a image of Balbo Babba. Vanova the Kinda like Panova and she is the goddess of Mirth and she's portrayed as a pussy with POW sometimes sometimes she carries a harp majestic. She sings body Song. GotTa stay surgery two minutes and she five came to damage and she said Yeah. Thanks for and I'm like no problem tonight. Roles you guys Unlike into my pussy power happen next so what happened next was she gave dimitur some Beer and food and Democrat would need and she was very insulted and so she came up and she pulled her skirt up and I pulled her panties I went back lost it and that made Damodar laugh. It did and then she had some beer and she had some food and she said. Do you know what I'm GonNa talk to my brother and she zeus and Zeus says. All right you know. What if she hasn't eaten anything? I'll let her come back to you. And it turned out that she'd eating six pomegranate seeds down in Haiti's so she comes back for six months of the year and stays down in Haiti's for six months. Well she likes basketball started getting into the layer to understand understood right. That's when she's down in Haiti's during winter and fall we're coming into that time we're coming into the the time win any is taken from Dimitur and Democrats could get very depressed but because of bow. Bow showing her pussy. She strong and she finds a way to negotiate with her patriarchal brother to get what she wants. At least half the Pussy Outta the story when I was in school I didn't know that to me too. That's why the post you and I. I went wait a second. She's making that. I looked it up on wikipedia too so you know and it was in a few other places so I figured okay. This is true this is true in terms of. It's a real Greek myth.

Listen to carry a city wherever you get your podcasts. I'm joshua an simon's and this is reset to say it's been a wild twenty twenty in illinois in chicago. Politics would be an understatement to avoid the loss of potentially tens of thousands of lives. We must enact an immediate stay at home order for the state of illinois. Have commuted the sentence of rod vic. He served eight years in jail. Most part things have stayed calm. That doesn't mean those protesters haven't been loud and furious illinois house speaker. Michael madigan continues to lose democratic support amid a corruption. Investigation involving com. Ed as the year comes to a close we wanna take a look back at the biggest stories in chicago in illinois as political scene with me to help break down the headlines or to chicago journalists. Who covered those stories and more. Wtt w political correspondent. Heather sharon heather always great to have you back. Thanks for having me and david grazing president of the better government association. Hi david welcome back. Thank you very much could be with you now before we dive into the stories. I am curious in less than three words. I want you to describe the political scene in twenty twenty heather. Let's start with you Unprecedented i win. Get to have that one. No fair and divisive David chaotic disrupted and unpredictable interesting. Yes i love those words now. It is hard to remember anything before the pandemic so i want to start there because illinois got its first confirmed case back in january only the second confirmed case in the entire country and then it wasn't long before illinois responded. Heather can you talk about some of the first actions that the state took in those early days. Well it is hard to remember but in fact chicago or illinois chicago illinois had the first confirmed case of covid nineteen outside of seattle. And i think that was my first indication that this was going to be very serious. It was a woman who had traveled from wuhan china where the virus was first discovered It's sort of launched. I think illinois into an all hands on deck moment and at the beginning it was. You know an attempt to keep people calm. There was a lot of talk about not panicking and that lasted really until beginning of march when it was clear that the virus was spreading uncontrollably. And which eventually prompted. I an order by the city. That if you're sick you need to stay home. And then the enforceable stay at home order and this is also one of the first that you just don't want to have. This is not a first that we want to brag about running not now the governor issued a he issued a stay at home order for illinois back in mid march when cases were still compared to now at least they were relatively low and he got a lot of flack for that from the business community and residents who didn't want to stay home and also suburban mayors. Who said you know. Kobe wasn't a problem in their towns. David can you remind us about what was going on. Then well was the beginning of a pushback on part of business and religious groups as well as conservatives especially downstate who challenged the governor prescribers stay at home order in court and in the public square and built a lot of resistance especially in some of the downstate communities even though in the southwestern part of the state Madison county in that area East of saint. Louis was one of the biggest and most intense areas of kobe. A covert episodes and so It this is. This has been an ongoing issue in fact it may be a contributing factor in what proved to be a big difference between the beginning of the year when illinois was one of the top five states in fighting covid and later in the year in the recent surge when always been among the bottom side the poorest performing states The no longer having a stay at home order and instead stay at home. Advisory was partly governor officers response to the pushback. He got and the advisory has been far less effective. And we've seen the case count and the The the positivity index go way out way beyond what it was early in the year so david considering all of that how would you grade governor pritzker response to the pandemic i think overall governor has been Very persistent in doing the best. He can against really Daunting Back does including the political pushback. That he's gotten i think. He deserves fairly high marks for staying in the game for putting himself in his entire staff At work on this issue and dealing with With a really pressing problem especially because it's not just one issue it's the surrounding states surrounding states. Iowa has been second Against a deep behind south dakota in terms of the the no the rate of positive test things and so he's been facing incredible odds and i think by and large dealing with it fairly well if you zero in on chicago mayor lori lightfoot was more or less in lockstep with governor when it came to responding to covid but she was facing a more concentrated problem. Highly dense population still congregating in small spaces or flocking to the lakefront. And things got tents. This is how it's going to big. We will shut you down. We will cite you and if we need to we will arrest you and we will take you to jail period. There should be nothing unambiguous about that. Don't make us treat you like a criminal but if you act like a criminal and you violate the law and you refused to do what is necessary to save lives. In the city in the middle of a pandemic we will take you to jail period. Heather i i was in washington at the time and i remember mayor lightfoot making the national stage at the time he reminders of some of the actions that she and her team took over the last year. Well should we heard her. Shut down the lakefront and we heard her sort of lean into this. Sort of notion of Anti lori and that she was gonna come find you and she you know. We saw all of the memes that she really embraced with sort of stern. Look on her face. But i would push back. Just a little bit on the notion that she's been in lockstep with governor pritzker and there have been two important areas where they have quietly but publicly disagreed with each other one. The mayor urged governor not to close schools in in mid march at the start of the pandemic. She really sort of tried to convince him that. That was going to be just really the wrong way to go. Especially for chicago's poor children. Who relied on schools. I safe place to go in somewhere to eat. They also disagreed about the role of indoor dining and drinking on spreading covid nineteen and we saw that clash last from may all the way through october when the the mayor of publicly on national television said. Hey don't do this governor pritzker and the governor politely inter for feedback ignored her. So i think that those two sort of indications where the to democrats sort of split i think is indicative of the different challenges that the each face governor pritzker had to lead whole state in the early days. You know david was is exactly right. There were there were counties in illinois. That only had a handful of kobe. Nineteen cases and many people downstate thought that this was just chicago problem now obviously in recent months and weeks that has become sadly not true at all but until so he had to face those issues. Where as mayor lori lightfoot had to release sort of deal with the pandemic that was hitting black and latino chicagoans much harder than white chicagoans and sort of had to grapple with that really rending disparity as best. You could so with that in mind. Heather how would you grade her response. Well you know. I think it's still very much a work in progress. And i think that both governor pritzker and mayor lightfoot will be judged on sort of how quickly they get people vaccinated and whether the people vaccinated. I are those most at risk from serious illness and death again. A black and latino chicagoans By and it will also sort of depend. I think in what we will begin to see over the next week or so whether Chicago schools do reopen the first preschool teachers special education. Teachers are set to return on monday It is not clear whether the union will move to block that and then the first students are to return january eleventh with elementary school students. To return in february. I that will happen before. Even the first chicago public schoolteacher will be vaccinated based on federal guidelines. So i think we're still very much in the thick of it and you know it seems like a couple of times during the pandemic. There's been a rush by us in the media to say okay. Let's look back. Let you judge. It's over and i can't emphasize enough. How not over. It is far from over. Yeah that's wtt w political correspondent. Heather sharon also with us is b.j. President david grazing and we're rounding up the top political stories in chicago and illinois from twenty twenty. Let's turn to another story from this year. We can't ignore in the midst of the pandemic. you had the police killing of george floyd in minneapolis. Which of course we felt that across the country including here in chicago david. What kind of response did we see here in chicago well we saw street protests and That that covered you know started downtown and lead to Looting and and outright writing downtown Obviously these were taking advantage of the legitimate Freedom of speech that was happening in response to a record of police brutality nationwide and in the chicago police department and You know mayor lightfoot correctly point out that these opportunists they came in caravans in some cases of cars writing downtown writing the suburban involved looting and just taking advantage and the police proved not really up to the cast. Despite in some cases days of warnings on social media that this was going to happen. It's obviously hard to police entire city and predict where these people will wind up. But it was shown that that chicago's responsiveness the chicago. Police departments responsiveness especially because it hands on social media as what was happening were up. We're we're not in proportion to the serious threat to public safety. That occurs yes. Dpd and the mayor received a lot of blowback for their handling of the protests and the looting absolutely and we had a situation that really kind symbolize the rich city poor city demarcation when the city as a as a legitimate defensive measure raise the bridges across the chicago river but this too many symbolize. That chicago was defending especially the wealthy area in magnificent mile And seem to symbolize that they were trying to put up the drawbridges to prevent Is the free flow to people from moving freely throughout the city so it hit again on the issue of heather mentioned earlier which is third the wealthy. The wealth gap the income gap and the race gap in the city of chicago. Now heather we also saw protests around the christopher columbus statues in chicago. That's when eighteen year old activists miracle boyd had her teeth knocked out by police and those statues were ultimately taken down by the city. And there was also a push to change the name of stephen. Douglas park to frederick douglass park and the removal of the stephen douglas statue from the state. Capital's lawn talk about how twenty twenty became the year of social justice movements. Well i think this is perhaps one of the most lasting legacies of the uprising after George floyd death in minneapolis police custody. I think that a lot of people Open their eyes and saw sort of these issues that have been an issue for years if not decades and just basically found the collective will to do something about it You know it was several years ago when alderman attempted to change the name of balbo drive for i to be wells. The iconex rights activists and investigative journalists only to find themselves blocked by the italian american community. Many of the same people who were protesting the removal of the Statues so these. These issues are nothing new but there seems to be a more willingness to sort of you know. Tackle them head on. It's still very much a work in progress. There's also move. In a council debate to rename out early short drive for gianbattista point to szabo who was a native of haiti and the first black person to settle the chicago area and what became chicago is the city. He founded a trading post of course but that is sort of mired in debate about the cost. And whether it's appropriate So this is all very unresolved especially because the mayor formed a commission to sort of address these issues After the columbus statues were taking down in the middle of the night. However we've not heard any sort of results for recommendations from those conditions which which means it's pretty state that if you were to do this year from now we'll still be talking about these issues david so much more to unpack from twenty twenty. There's the second round of looting that happened after the inglewood police shooting The police shooting of jacob blake in kenosha wisconsin which is fifty miles north of chicago. Of course more. Recently that footage that was released of the wrongful raid on engine. Young's home on the city's near westside. How has this year. Affected the relationship between police and the community well Clearly at least all of the differences are on the surface right now but The answer that jordan raid i think is emblematic of the lack of trust and and the grounds for a lack of trust on the part of community These police raided the wrong of urban came in to a woman who is undressing from work. had no clothes on. She was not treated respectfully. And then the way that the police department and the city's department clamps down on evidence of this botched raid You know denying a jordan access to the video tapes from the body cams Going to court to prevent Cbs to from airing the videotapes. That they they they they obtained access to etcetera those been. The mayor has scrambled to put the best face on this. She's acknowledged that she that there has been lots of trust. She tried to meet with me with ms jordan and then that has become a political. That whole issue has become a political football. It just shows how. How brought the policing issue is in the city of chicago. And they're like what's handpicked superintendent. David brown really has not succeeded in winning the support of the city He was undermined over memorial day weekend. After mayor lightfoot announced that he had failed in his first thing past. He's never completely recovered from that. Frankly even though he at press conferences he does say the right things and he's trying hard but he just has really had a big success now. Let's turn back to earlier in the year. When president trump commuted the sentence of former illinois governor rod blagojevich. david win. That story broke. What was your reaction. Oh a lack of surprise but a lot of sadness because frankly the campaign to release route. Goi rich was obvious on the part of his wife. Had he's going rich and it's understandable why she would want her husband released but he did nothing. He's he's never really Admitted to the crimes that he committed against the state of illinois against the people of illinois. And it's justice prevailed. He would have served out his full sentence at the time. It seemed like lubavitch was ready to jump back into the public sphere in some capacity but of course the pandemic kabosh on any plans there and he's kind of laid pretty low since then. Heather have we heard anything from him lately. Well you know. He campaigned a little bit for the republican nominee. Who ran against dick durbin for the united states. Senate seat at drew a little bit of media. Attention it seems though that he has become best known However for his cameo recordings where you can pay him a little bit of money in he will wish your best friend. A somewhat tongue in cheek sarcastic. Happy birthday But he has not proven to be a political force in any way And it's one of those sort of twists. The faith that i think a lot about that you know he. He was allowed to leave prison after so many years. Only to have to quarantine almost immediately after leaving prison and it is just one of those of eight stories. That are just everywhere. You look in two twenty. Well trump commuting blagojevich's sentence was just one of many bizarre pardons that he would go on to do. What message did he send with this one other. Well it was. I think quite explicit because if you can remember a. rod blagojevich was convicted essentially by patrick hollings the former. Us attorney who was good friends with Jim komi they were part of the whole justice department culture and this was you know explicitly framed by cloudy patty guay. The former governor's wife who went on fox news to sort of speak directly to president to say. Look the same people. Who are you believe are attacking youth through the investigation of your campaigns russian collusion during the two thousand. Sixteen campaign They they got my husband so if you want to get back at them release him it was. It was very explicit and very clear. And i think that that has continued in recent weeks. We as we've seen the president for commute but then pardoned roger stone who was also convicted as part of the the muller special counsel investigation along with his former campaign chair. Paul manafort as well as chicago. George popadopoulos who has sort of intimated that he has political ambitions in chicago in the years to come so It's really all part of the same sort of attempt by the president to curb to discredit the russian investigation And sort of its its findings that while there might not have been enough at minster proof that the the president's campaign worked with russians there were certainly a number of of contacts that raised a significant number of questions we'll speaking of corruption in springfield. Another big story this year. The comment bribery scandal David this one's a quite complicated a lot of executives lawmakers lobbyists. Give us the gist here. What what happened in. Why do we care well. The the big charges against Michael madigan the house speaker's One of his closest political confidence Michael mclean who really was mr fix it For meghan and according to the allegations in the in the indictment mclean basically was a go-between commonwealth out. Which has a lot of business before the state and the speaker of the house even though magnitude is not been charged with any crime and says he did nothing wrong. The indication in the allegations again and again is that that mclean help to To create jobs for madigan cronies nowhere jobs. In some instances that in fact that succeeded in putting A board member of komo of addison Political associate of madigan's onto the board. And come about some an promise. Gyory the the ceo. Come at us and who resigned in the face of this scandal seemingly was complicit in all this there are indications in the charge that that she said basically. You know do do this. I don't wanna be getting a call from the speaker saying that he wants something done again This indicates that if she ends up testifying she may be able to say that she had direct conversations with mike madigan but again mike madigan has been very good over the years of leaving very few footprints and fingerprints on anything he does. Love allegedly doing something illegal and so the jury is not even gathered much less out on the question of whether madigan ultimately will face Criminal charges for or in the end being found guilty of them in different matter entirely. We'll have their madigan has also gotten so much democratic support in recent months. You know with the governor mayor lightfoot and democratic lawmakers in springfield calling on him to to step down was twenty twenty a turning point for his long career. Well i think we're going to have to wait and see until the democratic house caucus meets in january. It is not clear whether he will not have the votes to to stay as speaker and if he doesn't it's hard to overstate sort of what a seismic change that lean in illinois politics however we've not yet see A strong challenger sort of announced a public campaign for speaker so while so right now and for several weeks we've been in this weird limbo where meghan does not appear to have enough votes. He needs sixteen to stay a speaker. But there's no real challenger and when you have somebody powerful. Is mike not again as somebody who's as knowledgeable as mike madigan on. Who's just basically he. You know he. He knows sort of what everybody needs and how to give it to them. I am reluctant to write. His political obituary on healthy actually falls. Because it's just not clear that he won't be able to pull another pervious rabbit out of the hat. We'll let's stay in springfield in turn to another story. And that's the state budget of course if our budgets were once precariously teetering over a financial cliff. The pandemic came in. And it just threw it right over the edge right other absolutely There was a bit of a glimmer of hope in recent weeks that the latest covid nineteen relief package would include aid for states and cities like chicago in illinois that desperately needed however that sort of was not part of the final package that the president finally signed into law just in recent days that leaves illinois facing the really the worst of all worlds. Its budget deficit is so guards that it really hasn't. The state really has no other option but deep cuts and Likely income tax hikes and because the so-called fair tax amendments failed in november that tax hike will be felt across the board because illinois still has a flat income tax which means that everybody pays the same rate whether are a billionaire. Or if they're just making minimum wage so assuming that the that the general assembly does meet in january despite sort of still extremely high covid nineteen cases. They will face really no good options to to balance the budget. And it will mean that. The governor will have to sort of perhaps put on the backburner some of his priorities such as Increase in spending on education and human services and social services And it means that the city which had a one point two billion dollar budget deficit in two thousand twenty one likely will not be back in rethink on a huge amount of borrowing that made balancing its budget As well david. Both pritzker and lightfoot repeatedly urged the federal government to provide financial aid to states and municipalities. Did those pleas fall on deaf ears well seemingly so far. Certainly they fell on deaf ears. Mitch mcconnell the senate majority leader. Who really has been wary of doing anything to bail out states that have been crossing it in their spending and illinois has been cited as exhibit a. there The game is not over yet. there will President-elect biden has indicated that he plans to help the states and that would be a top priority For him once he takes office depend on the vote as the runoff vote in georgia where to incumbent senators republican senators face spirited generosity from Two very capable democratic opponents and we're seeing record amounts of spending on those who races so this is not over but to tell you that the size of the problem in the current budget president or governor christie faces about four billion dollars a of a deficit two billion dollars of revenue losses from hogan alone and he was hoping for two more than two billion dollars from the federal government to borrow from the federal government the federal reserve It's unclear whether those monies will be available given some of the last minute Gamesmanship on the part of the steve mnuchin the treasury secretary and so the when you look into the abyss of the deficit and planning for Governor pritzker it really is kind of breathtaking especially as heather intimated. There's not even a clear plan. For how the how. The legislature can meet in january because of public problems and the law requires them to meet in person. They address that to to make a change before they can even do any meaningful business. Well as we wrap here. Heather talked about what you think was the biggest political story of the year. All it has to be covid nineteen and it has to be how everybody from the mayor's through with the city council and the governor sort of handled its impact on People and i think that we sort of are still in the midst of it. So it's hard sort of know what it's lasting impact will be but it would it. Has you know without a doubt shown a very unflattering light on the systemic racism and the systemic inequality that is rife with in chicago and illinois. And i often think about how on valentine's day a february fourteenth so really about a month before everything shut down. The mayor unveiled sort of the grand plan to address generational poverty and just sort of get it those root causes of crime and and all of these things that have become you know so apparent in our society and of course that all you know was just sort of lost in the day luge of of illness and honestly yeah looking ahead of twenty twenty one david. What are your predictions. If you had a crystal ball well. I think that kogo will continue to rack. Wreak havoc across the state and the leadership capabilities of both governor of a pritzker in moraga will continue to be tested the policing issue. It's ironic that the governor was elected. Promising the so called fair tax and he lost on that and mayor. Lightfoot was elected With the idea that she could solve chicago's problem and that has continued to be her biggest challenge so watching in twenty twenty one to see if either governor. Christopher has this resolution for the state's fiscal challenges or viper can solve. Some problems will be one of the will spend a lot of time doing that in the year us quickly. We didn't mention that this was a census year and that has some positive implications illinois. What should we expect david. While we're going to expect to see a news math ron and this could be a first time in decades. That got that mike. Madigan has not controlled that process The bj's publish as so-called a amount that is standing dressed the badly gerrymander illinois math. And now we'll also see. Chicago is putting map being redrawn as well based on census results. And that's going to be a product process so There's a lot on the line of for killing as that all happened. What a year.

Moreno an island just off the coast of Venice. Giacomo Girolamo cazenove had just taken all Saints Day Mass at Santa Maria Daily Angelique Church. And here's about to board a Gondola back to his home in Venice. When a nun from the Churches Convent appeared before him without a word. Then an-and dropped a note at his feet and vanished into the crowd intrigued. Cazenove picked up the envelope and broke the shimmering gold seal the note read a nun who has seen you in her church. Every feast day for the past two and a half months wishes you to make her acquaintance instructions followed if cazenove wanted to meet this mysterious none. He would send his reply to the Church Song in the heart Venice. A MESSENGER would be waiting for him at the first altar on the right. Cazenove was intrigued. But could this mysterious? None be trusted. What if this invitation was a trap? What if he was walking right into the clause of the most dangerous men in Europe? The shadow we all powerful enemies of everything. Casanovas stood for the inquisition. This is espionage.

This is our first episode on Giacomo. Girolamo Casanova the infamous ladies man conman gambler Charlatan and most curiously spy. This week. We'll follow casanovas attempts to avoid the secret agents of the Venetian inquisition next week. We'll explore the dramatic turn of events that led him to work as an informant four inquisition casanovas journey into the clandestine service of the Venetian inquisition. Like many of Casanovas stories begins with a woman. In this case a non cazenove had every reason to be suspicious of the mysterious letter he received from the non in November. Seventeen fifty three in the seventeen fifty the council of ten which State Security and intelligence in the Republic of Venice employed and extensive network of spies to root out possible plots of treason or other security threats. These crimes were prosecuted by a secretive tribunal of three judges called the state inquisitors. According to Dr Iona I are Donayre a senior lecturer at Oxford Brookes University the Venetian inquisition was one of the world's earliest centrally organized. State Intelligence Services in the sixteenth century the Venetian government made use of the Bouquet de Leon stone boxes shaped like lions mouths where citizens could drop accusations and complaints about their neighbors almost overnight. The boxes were flooded with so many anonymous tips that the government didn't have time to sort through them. Similar systems were utilized during the fifteenth century. Where citizens could anonymously report their neighbors for failing to meet public health standards during the second pandemic of the black plague many of the laws the inquisition enforced were religious in nature blasphemy magic witchcraft and impure behavior. Were punishable offenses. But in truth the inquisitors were less concerned with maintaining a pious society and more concerned with maintaining power their primary purpose was to keep the oligarchy of Venice. In place and Giacomo cazenove had committed the biggest crime of all crossing social boundaries. Casanovas came from humble origins. His father actor had died when he was a child. His mother an actress and dancer had abandoned him to tour Europe. He spent his childhood bouncing from his grandmother's home to boarding houses to the eventual care of a local priest. But by seventeen fifty three the twenty-eight-year-old dilettante had one small fortune from gambling. Made A name for himself through. Wild brawls and sexual escapades charmed his way into high society and risen to near Nobility. If he kept his head down he might have gone unnoticed but Casanovas wild behavior combined with his murky background put a target on his back. The inquisition wanted him out of the way they just needed an excuse and it was very possible the none was a spy for the inquisition. Luring him into a trap. He should have ignored the note but the fortune he'd one was long spent despite his charming wealthy reputation. He was a compulsive gambler with crippling debt. There was a chance that whatever this none wanted from him she would offer him payment in return. It was a risk. Cazenove was willing to take so in early November. Seventeen fifty three cazenove journey back to the Santa Maria Daily Angelique Convent Morongo to me. His mysterious none. They're in a private room. He saw her for the first time even behind her habit. Casanova liked what he saw her brown hair her delicate features. She introduced herself as a Maria. Eleonora Mikhail the daughter of a well known and wealthy Venetian family. Justice cazenove had hoped after a brief introduction. They parted ways and vowed to meet again soon somewhere more. Private than within the walls of the Convent. Cazenove felt certain that the woman wasn't a spy she was just a lonely beautiful none. Who'd heard the rumors about his most? Well known trait his prowess as a lover. He was also certain that in a matter of days Maria Eleonora and her money would be his but there was one complication. Casanovas betrothed Katerina earlier that Spring cazenove had promised Katharina a young girl from Venice. His hand in marriage. Her father didn't approve for one thing. Casanovas reputation preceded him for another Katharina was only fourteen and Casanova was twice her age. So Katerina's father center to live in a convent for four years to finish up her education in a more secluded more chased environment at the end of that time if cazenove had a well established position than Katharina would return and Casanova could take her hand in marriage but for years was a long time to wait for a lover and the main draw of the institution of marriage her dowry Cazenove. Decided there'd be no harm and seeing Maria Eleonora for now and keeping Katharina in the dark about it. Cazenove failed to consider one little detail. Katerina and Maria lived in the same convent in fact not long. After Katerina arrived at the convent in the spring of Seventeen fifty three. She discovered she was pregnant. The pregnancy ended in miscarriage before it could be discovered but one other sister found out the truth and help nurse. Katharina back to health that none was Maria. Eleonora and while Maria was tending to Caterina's bedside they shared a few kisses Katerina's father had succeeded in sheltering her from male influence. But the convent walls weren't quite as chaste as he'd hoped it wasn't long before Maria and Katharina became lovers. Maria didn't know that Casanova was casuarinas aspiring fiance Katharina. Didn't know that Berea had become the object of Casanovas affection and Casanova didn't have any idea what he was getting into later that month in November. Seventeen fifty three. Maria told cazenove that she was ready to meet again but they had to be careful. The inquisition was always watching. She suggested they meet in another location. One you would never expect from a non casino the homebase for all manner of debauchery in Eighteenth Century Venice including secretive apartments designed for romantic trysts. Casanova received detailed instructions. You will go up the stairs opposite the street door and at the top of the stairs you'll see by the light of a lantern a green door which will open to enter an apartment that you will find lighted in the second room. You will find me and if I am not there you will wait for me. I will not be more than a few minutes late. Cazenove found the room sat by the fire and open a book shortly after Maria walked in for the first time they were alone together. Outside the walls of the convent but cazenove were surprised when Marie rebuffed his sexual advances. She was a nun after all. She took the vow of chastity at least somewhat seriously they kissed for awhile then fell asleep in each other's arms. The next morning cazenove was more confused than ever. What exactly did Maria want from him? When cazenove return to Venice he received a letter from Katharina. She had spied through Chink in the wall and seen Maria and cazenove in deep conversation in the back room of the convent. She demanded that cazenove. Tell her the truth and the whole truth about his relationship with her dear close friend Maria cazenove road back that there was nothing between him and Maria. He assured Katharina that she had nothing to worry about. But cazenove was worried about something else if Katharina was watching. Who else might have been spying on them? A few days later on November twenty fifth seventeen fifty three cazenove was on a Gondola bound for Marrano. When he noticed a man was following him and another boat Kosova disembarked and tried to lose the man in the crowd but to no avail he docked onto a baron side street in waited when the man followed him around the corner. Cazenove leaped out in. Put a knife to his throat when a passer-by came into view Casanova relented and the man ran away. But there wasn't a doubt Casanovas. Mind this man was a spy for the inquisition. The Venetian inquisition would frowned on cavorting with nuns. And indulging in excessive pleasure but cazenove was ruled by his heart. Not his mind. He kept seen Maria and in late December. Seventeen fifty three. He received a letter. Maria confessed that she'd been keeping a secret and felt it was time. Casanova learned the truth during their rendezvous at the convent. Someone had indeed been watching them. Francois Joie Keam disappear do bear knee otherwise known as obey the bare knee. The French Ambassador to Venice according to Maria to bear knee was her lover and sworn protector. He had been ensconced in a perfect hiding place from which he would not only see all that we did without himself being seen but also here always said. Casanova began to panic. His suspicion had been correct and now a government minister new his most dangerous secret but kept reading Maria road. That Bernini wasn't angry about what he'd seen. He was delighted. He didn't want Casanovas to stop seeing Maria rather he wanted their relationship to continue and he wanted to keep watching she asked cazenove to meet her back at the Casino at the end of the year to bear. Ni would be there she wrote. You will not see him and he will see everything. Cazenove was surprised but not put off to bear name may have been a man of unusual taste but at least he wasn't and inquisition spy. He wrote Maria and told her he was. All in. Cazenove was flirting with disaster if the inquisition to find out that a social renegade like cazenove was cavorting with not only none but also the French ambassador. He would be in hot water yet once again. His lost one out over his logic in early January seventeen fifty four he and Maria met again at the casino and this time they made love for hours to bear. Knee watched the entire affair through a people in the wall. All three left satisfied in made plans to meet again soon. Not Long. After this frolic the Casino cussing over received a letter from Catarina. She confessed that she and Maria were lovers. Cazenove was delighted. He replied that he and Maria as well now that all their secrets were out. The four of them Cazenove Katharina Maria and ambassador does. Barney could continue their various trysts in peace in harmony but the bear. He wasn't the only person watching through the walls. All throughout Casanovas liaisons with Maria and Katharina spies for the inquisition had been monitoring his every move Casanovas. Initial suspicions had been right. His days as a freeman were numbered. The exact date is unclear but sometime in seventeen fifty four cazenove made the acquaintance of a diamond dealer named Giovanni Battista MINUCCI they met at Casanovas apartment to discuss a business transaction as manute see took in the decor. He was particularly interested in some manuscripts about magic on Casanovas Bookshelf of course in Catholic Venice books on magic and witchcraft. Were strictly banned books. Like these were a rarity. So cazenove indulge MINUCCI's curiosity and showed off his library. The key of Solomon a book of Magic Hebrew mystic taxed associated with Kabbalah. Pick a tricks. A study of devil worship and more Manute Z. Said he had a friend who pay a high price for these books. He asked to borrow them for a night so he could show them to his potential buyer. Cazenove always hard up for money agreed but MINUCCI was not a diamond dealer nor was he a secondhand bookseller. He was an agent of the state inquisitors. And He'd been compiling a dossier on cazenove for at least seven months. These magic books were the smoking gun. The inquisitors needed to convict him for blasphemy coming up the inquisition closes in on Casanova. Hi It's Carter.

In a panic earlier that day he had been tipped off. The inquisition had issued a warrant for him dead or alive. He begged Maria for help. He needed money to get out of town and he promised he would pay her back. The first chance God Maria agreed and lent him some more money but cazenove did not leave town like a moth to a flame. He went to the casino if he was hoping to double marinas money. The plan didn't work. He gambled late into the night and by the next morning he had lost it all a few days later on July. Twenty sixth Seventeen Fifty. Five cazenove was at home sleeping. There was a knock on the door. In the doorway stood and official of the state inquisitors tribunal he barged in and snooped around the apartment though. It didn't take long for him to find what he was looking for. Illegal books the official ordered Casanovas to get dressed and come within from there he was taken to the doges palace. The headquarters of the state inquisitors. The inquisitors made their rulings in secret trials. Without any oversight from any other government agencies. Sometimes prisoners were arrested convicted and sentenced without any trial whatsoever. This was the fate of Giacomo Casanova on September twelfth. Seventeen fifty five. He was sentenced without trial to five years imprisonment in the leads. He never learned the exact charges against him. But the tribunal cited his public outrages against the holy religion. The leads was a prison on the top floor of the doges palace. Name the lead plates covering the roof. Once a man walked into the leads. It was likely he wouldn't walk out for a very long time. If ever cazenove was determined to not suffer that fate as far as he knew no one had ever escaped from the leads prison but he was determined to be the first on a warm night in August. Seventeen fifty six cazenove lay on the floor of his prison cell in Doges Palace. He worked by lamplight. His body was covered in sweat in his hand was a small metal bolt. He had found on the floor months ago. He'd spent the past few weeks digging scratching at the marble floor as hard as he possibly could. He had been locked away and doges palace for over a year now. His whole was some ten inches deep. There was only one marble panel left to go before he could make his escape. Casanovas knew that his best chance to make his escape was in a few days on August. Twenty Eighth Saint Augustine's Day the entire Venetian Great Council. Met Together that day so the state inquisitors chamber directly below his prison cell would be empty and the path to freedom free and clear but just as he was finalizing the details fortune through cazenove another complication. Lorenzo. The gaoler as Lorenzo's footsteps drew closer. Casanova blew out. His candle tossed the metal bolt in the hole and dragged his pallet on top of the whole. He dove under the covers just as Lorenzo arrived. He brought devastating news. Casanova was being moved to a new cell in a different part of the prison. All the work he done had been for nothing and when his whole was discovered he'd be in even deeper trouble than he already was cazenove later wrote. I wished I were also being followed by the fine hole. I had made with such effort and which I had to abandon but it was impossible. My Body move on but my soul remained behind Casanovas. New Salle was at least in upgrade. It had a window with a panoramic view of Venice in the high ceilings. Made it possible for him to comfortably stand upright but it was cold comfort a few days later Lorenzo. The gaoler found the hole in the floor of his old self. He demanded Casanova Turnover. Whatever piece of contraband had used to scratch through the MARBLE CAST? Inova was caught red handed but he played the fool. He replied that he had no earthly idea. What Lorenzo was talking about. Lorenzo ordered a subordinate to strip cazenove down and search him. The guard patted him down searched his palette his chair even his chamber pot in the end they couldn't find a thing. But the truth was self evident. One way or another cazenove had made the hole in the inquisitors would get to the bottom of it. Still Kazunobo refused to confess. Not only that. He issued a threat. If Lorenzo ratted him out to the inquisitors he would tell them that. Lorenzo had given him the bolt to make the whole in the first place. Lorenzo raged in anger. But there was little he could do. During the inquisition. Citizens could be locked up without any evidence of their crimes. Even a jailer. One accusation away from ending up on the other side of the bars as soon as Lorenzo and the guards were gone. Casanovas pulled out the small metal bolt. He had expertly concealed in his armchair in early September. Life finally started to improve for cazenove. The Renzo was no longer angry with him but he was a little boy because cazenove kept demanding more books to read perhaps out of pity or perhaps just to make him shut up Lorenzo obliged him he would let cazenove trade books with another prisoner. Awesomeness can monk named father. Marin bobby who occupied the cell just above Casanovas. Cazenove WAS DELIGHTED. Not only because he adored books but because he could now send secret coded messages to his fellow prisoner. Casanovas sharpened his fingernail to a fine point and fashioned INC from black mulberry juice to test the waters. He wrote a random innocuous message buried deep in the pages of one of his books the next time they swapped books cazenove found that Father Bobby had written him a reply through their correspondence. Cazenove eventually learned that one of his admirers had offered Lorenzo money to help casanovas escape. It's unclear how Father Bobby learned this information but cazenove was thrilled. According to Bobby Lorenzo had misgivings about betraying the inquisitors so he refused to actively help but if cazenove tried to escape on his own the Renzo would probably let it happen. Pretend he'd been involved and take the he'd been offered cazenove quickly began planning his escape grateful for the information. He asked Father Bobby if he wanted to secure his own freedom to and if he was prepared to risk everything to gain it bobby replied in the affirmative in cazenove hastened his work on digging a new hole through the floor of his new sow. After about a month he was finally done in late. September all he had to do was get the metal ball to bobby so he could dig through his own cell Lou on September twenty ninth seventeen fifty six in honor of the Feast of Saint Michael. Casanova asked for permission to cook a batch of buttered Gnocchi. He wanted to show his appreciation to for all his hard work as a jailer. And he wanted to thank dear friend. Father Bauby for lending him his books. The gift wouldn't be complete unless he could make it with his own hands. Lorenzo wasn't willing to let cazenove venture to the kitchen but he agreed to cooperate. He cooked pasta then brought the SAUCEPAN and some ingredients to Casanovas cell so he could make the seasoning himself standing at the door of his cell. Casanovas stirred the butter into the SAUCEPAN in poor. The Piping Hot Gnocchi into bowls filling them up to the brim. He asked Lorenzo to take a bowl to father. Bobby right away. Lorenzo complained that the ball was too hot to carry. Casanova offered a quick solution. He would set the ball on top of a large leather bound. Bible to protect his hands from the heat. As Lorenzo took the Bible in his hands he didn't notice Casanovas. `expert Magic Trick. Magic and espionage might seem like two unrelated arts but they have a rich history of intersection. The CIA's manual of trickery and deception says for the Magician. The perfectly executed illusion is the ultimate goal for the spy. Allusion is only a means to divert attention from a clandestine. Act in the nineteen fifties. The CIA commissioned magician. John Mulholland to create a report on how stage magic techniques could be used for covert intelligence operations one of the tactics. He explored his the age. Old Magician secret sleight of hand the key to successful sleight of hand is to misdirect the observers attention away from the covert action while stage. Magicians might misdirect the audience with colorful scarves or flowing sequined capes spies have to use casual natural gestures. That won't raise the suspicion of even the most well trained surveillance operative mulholland instructed the CIA agents that the flaming of a match rising in one hand to light a target cigarette would mask the discreet drop of a pill from the other hand. Cazenove used the same trick on the Renzo as he placed the delicious steaming bowl of Nokia. On top of the Bible with one hand he carefully slipped his small metal bolt underneath a bowl with the other. The Renzo thought he was just taking father. Bobby a bowl of pasta but he was actually handing him the tool. He needed to escape. The plan went off a month later on October. Thirty first seventeen fifty. Six cazenove picked this particular night because it was a holiday. Lorenzo would be drunk. Most of the inquisitors would be out in the country enjoying their time off that night. Casanova in bobby climbed through the holes. They had dug. They snuck through the doges palace and made their way to the final barrier the roof. Casanova used metal bolt to bash through the panels until the moonlight shone through because of the holiday. No one was around here using a rope. Made out of cloth Napkins and bedsheets cazenove and father. Bobby climbed out onto the sloped roof. Some two hundred feet in the air from there. They crawled on their hands and knees across the palace roof and climbed down into the window of a neighboring flat inside the flat. Casanovas in bobby ran through a maze of dark corridors and stairs hoping to find a way down into the street but as the sun began to rise all the twists and turns only led them to a sturdy locked door. Casanova tried to pick the lock to no avail. Retreat wasn't an option is too risky to retrace their steps. They might run into guard. Who'd been sent to pursue them? Cazenove decided it was time for a disguise. John Mendez a retired officer with more than twenty five years of experience. Explains that what we do with. Disguises is always additive. We can make you taller. We can make you heavier. We can make you older. The goal she says is always to blend in Casanova however went the opposite direction. He removed a small bag of his own clothes from his vest. White stockings. Fine shirt trimmed with lace and Swanky Cappello hat with a plume. Who would suspect a well dressed? Nobleman of being an escaped convict after changing into his expert skies. Casanovas said about fixing the problem at the locked door he ran to a nearby window flung it open and called a small crowd of people on the street for help. Fortune smiled on cazenove. Once again someone sent for an attendant who had a key to the door. As casson over listened to the footsteps approaching he peered through a crack in the door inside the man up. He was alone set of keys jingled in his hand. His fellow looked unsuspicious but if he tried to stop them. Casanovas still had his medal bolt in his hand. If it was sharp enough to cut through the marble floor it had to be sharp enough to cut through a man as the door swung open. The man didn't say a word he just stared at cazenove and father Bobby split-second Casanova wondered if the man recognized him but he didn't wait around to find out the answer. The two men barreled through the doorway. Casanova knocked the man to the ground unconscious. They fled down a flight of stairs towards the streets below. They ran past the statue of Neptune through the PORTA Della. Carta across the Piazza until they reached the canal bobby and cazenove hopped on the first Gondola. They could find as the boats snaked. Its way through the canal. Cazenove took a moment to consider his circumstances. He took a good look at his companion panting and covered in sweat. They look like a pair of charlatans but at least they were free but the grasp of the inquisition reached far beyond the walls of the prison. Getting out of the leads was just step one step two was getting out of Venice coming up Casanova and Father Bobby Flee Venice now back to the story escaped prisoners Giacomo Casanovas and father bobby docked at the port of stray in Venice mid morning on November. First Seventeen fifty six shortly after bobby disappeared as the morning turned afternoon. Casanovas searched everywhere for his partner in crime. He toyed with the idea of leaving bobby behind but he couldn't abandon the old priest. Whose own devices. If bobby was captured the inquisitors would know. Cazenove wasn't far behind. He eventually found Father Bobby relaxing. In a coffeehouse drinking hot chocolate and flirting with the waitress. Cazenove was livid. He dropped a few coins on the table. Grab Bobby by the arm and dragged him out into the streets. There was no time to properly chide him. They needed to keep moving just as they were about to. Hop into a carriage cazenove heard a voice calling out to him. You there Seniora. Cazenove turned around to find a familiar. Face Babo Tomasi an informant for the tribunal of the inquisitors according to Casanovas own memoir. They acquainted but it's unclear. How cazenove newsroom. Cazenove was surprised to see Tha Mossy standing there and even more surprised when Tomasi asked him point blank. How did you manage your escape from prison? Word had clear they travelled fast but Casanova pleaded cool. He said to Mossy was mistaken. He had been freed from prison. It was obvious that Tomasi did not believe in the port of mastery was crawling with police have Tomasi wanted cazenove arrested. All he had to do was yell for the nearest officer. Now informants for the inquisition. We're not necessarily loyal to the Venetian government. They were however loyal to their pocket. Books being an informant has always been a lucrative field. According to the FBI's confidential human source policy guide special agents in charge can pay each of their offices. Informants one hundred thousand dollars per year in Casanovas time the figures were similarly impressive informants like Balbo. Tomasi took their work seriously because they were paid handsomely for it. Casanovas didn't give Tomasi a chance to do his job. He grabbed Tomasi by the collar and raised his fist. In the air fully prepared to strike him to Mossy didn't put up a fight he ran away disappearing into the crowd. Cazenove cursed his fool of a companion had nearly cost him his freedom. Bobby had been helpful in the initial escape but now on the run he was turning into a liability casanovas resolved. It was time to ditch. The priest. Cazenove explained their delicate position. Where now being searched for everywhere and our descriptions have been circulated so accurately that we should be arrested at any in that. We dare enter together. But bobby refused to part ways. He reminded cazenove that they were in this together and that they had agreed to never separate. Despite the fact that Bobby had very recently done just that cazenove tried a different tactic. He picked up a shovel off the ground and waved at at Bobby Shouting. I am going to bury you alive. Bobby burst into tears. Cazenove guiltily apologized but insisted that separating was the safest thing he promised. Bobby he would meet him at an inn on the northern border of Venice in a few days time. Casanova gave bobby all his money and told him to go of course. Casanova had no intention of meeting Father Bobby at the end he needed to get out of Venice and fast but the day was getting on and Casanovas was sleep deprived and starving before he made his way out of the country he needed. A good night's rest shepherd pointed him towards a Little Red House not far away but there was one problem. The House was owned by the Cappuccino Delic. Upon yet the chief of the Inquisitions Police Force obviously showing up at the police chiefs house was a risky move for an escaped convict but cazenove was desperate. He walked in the direction of the Little Red House hoping his disguise and his charm would be enough to fool the chief when the door opened a young boy greeted in Casanova. Ask the child if his father was home before the boy could answer the chief's wife appeared in the doorway and invited their visitor inside. She explained that her husband had written off in search of two escaped convicts. She said one is a patrician and the other is a man named cazenove. Cazenove didn't flinch. As usual. He played it cool. Pretended to be a good friend of the chiefs and ask for a bed to sleep in the wife said of course she helped dress Casanovas wounds and he drifted off into a deep sleep. He woke up the next morning with start with the benefit of a good night's sleep cazenove realized just how stupid he had been to come here. He immediately threw on his clothes and ran for the door without saying goodbye. Praising his luck cazenove journey north out of the Venetian republic. He prayed that is good. Luck would carry him the rest of the way cazenove new the inquisitors would never stop hunting him. He knew that the only way to truly escape their grasp was to journey to Paris and to make himself useful to the powers that be in France. Cazenove had worn many hats in his day playboy playwright poet prisoner after leaving. Venice he would finally have the opportunity to add another title to the list.

Motoweek - Assen MotoGP Post-Race Show!

"From moto dot net it's the motor we podcast is your host wilson big drama big wreck send a yamaha taking the checkered flag so if you want it and unpredictable the day of racing you came to the right place because ass and with happy the provided hello and welcome to the motor we post racial around eight of the world championship the dutch t t an ass in my name is well said i'm your host and if i'm being honest i wasn't even sure i was it's gonna make it to the motor gp race on sunday because there were not the action and excitement in the first two races for like an entire season in most other sports i was exhausted after the end of the border to race and we haven't even gotten to the premier class even though moto gp kinda lack the whole elbows and vendors feel of the first two races they still gave us an unlikely yamaha win in the double podium on top of it so let's talk about all of it starting with the moto three and coming into this race everybody talked about how asking this such a legendary tracking how iconic that chicane is coming to the start finish line well let's talk about living up to the billing that she came played such a big part in a motor three event that was really defined as much by those elbows and fenders as it was by speed and strategy everybody was taking a chunk out of everybody else out there i'm pretty sure that every single rider left at least a little bit of paint on someone's ferrings ferrings or me sliders or leathers throughout that event i mean guys were racing so hard and making so much contact that it's a bit surprising that it only came down to two writers and then of course a big part of why there were only a pair of riders battling for the checkered flag flag is because so many other people were busy banging into each other and running off track as a result i'm the beginning of this race made it looked like it was simply gonna be a fight between two until the end those to marry nellie sniper riders tonio lino who's on the pole and they very surprising remodel phonology well he was surprising perhaps the race then he went back to being romano phonology on but as a side note says were talking about those guys kyko tobin's bike oh my gosh that special honda tribute livery for the honda teenager riders just absolutely absolutely stunning or what there was so much vintage awesome this there and it doesn't really matter to me who won the race but i was bummed out genuinely bummed when toba got wrecked because it would have been so cool to see that bike in park furry may at a place this historic as asking but obviously that didn't happen but all the beating of banging the writers were doing definitely began to take its toll not only taking out riders like toba but also causing a ton of guys just short cut the she came had to give up spots the net result result was that that huge leap packer like twenty two twentyfive riders for the majority of the race ended up getting broken up in the last of those big incidents separated yaacob core and file lorenzo teleport antonio lino from everyone else and i i mean when it comes to court filing he kind of came out of nowhere i mean he wasn't a factor early on but he was on fire late in this race charging to the front picking unimpressive bleed and he could he could have won this race but he beat himself because he just wasn't thinking he got hit with an audio lap at the end of the race because he cut the final she came just before he took the league but it was absolutely avoidable you go back you look at the replay he got the corner and then after he went through the green painted area there he just put his head down and kept right on going if he had set up for a second and giving back just one or two spots when he wouldn't have gotten hit with a long lap and he would have had a much better shot of winning this race 'cause he would have only given up a couple of bike links as opposed to the seconds that he had the give up doing that long laps in just a little bit more thinking at that point and he easily i think would have won this race or what had a very very good shot winning the race but he did have to run the lap and that look things up to adela port in arbor lino and man what a show between those two guys right up to the finals chicane tony arbor lino did not give up in this one i'm like you see me phonology who looking halfway promising an even lead early on but he faded the sooners business starting to pick up but are believing it does fine job of staying in contention staying close made his move at exactly the right time a little bit of luck they're not being caught up in any of the madness but he made his move but the right time i wasn't quite sure if he was gonna wait until that final she came to try to get by teleport turn not but he made the pass one corner earlier and that was the smart thing to do i mean when you think about the sheer number of riders bounced off line during the race after contact in that final corner then i think that it will say very wise decision to be in front because it just gave you more options than less of a chance of getting penalised because if you're up front and the other guy tries to make a pass some runs into you when you run off line and this came in cut it short where they're probably gonna let you slide on that but if you're the one making the move in you either pushy other guy wide industry kanner else you cut it as a result would then like i said you're far more likely to be the one that's penalize even if you're a first across the line so very heads up move by tony rb lino but the guy he beat out there so i know you've gotta feel terrible for lorenzo teleport how many times how many times can you have an incredible bike do a fine job in still still come up short i mean for the championship things are fine for him he's still got twenty points but i know he has to one that win really really badly right about now and i thought he was actually gonna get it this time because he looks so strong he was breaking very late in the first half of that final abc news rome the corner really really well but he just couldn't keep that up in the final sector i don't know what happened between the beginning of the lap so they ended a lap but he wasn't nearly as strong on the brakes and he wasn't nearly as quick to the center the corner in those last couple of turns and that was what open the door for arbel lino a pony minnesota antonio lino becomes the first motor three rider to win multiple races this season and they thriller of a finnish oliver incidental porto once again comes short by the narrowest of margins was like a half a tire link there teleport's now has three three second place finishes in the last four races for second place finishes on the season and seven second place results since thailand of last year i know it's gotta be frustrating but there are a lot of writers that would gladly trade with him right now we have the seven second place finishes reading at the podium yaacob cornball despite the penalty he still finish top three that's a sign of just how fast he was at the end of this race and it's all the more impressive that he could give up that much time in any moto three race instill come out on the rostrum i'm so in the championship it was another up and down race for the title hopefuls eric and that was never a factor in this one he finished twelfth after really kind of running in that same area all day long and then nikola nellie he got caught up in the wreck the took out toba so's the second straight day in the points for him so is it all shakes out kennett does keep delete now by seven over amazingly consistent saint yet winless in two thousand nineteen teleport's man cinelli is twentyfour back in third and then tony orlando is thirty one back and forth as of right now it really looks like consistency is gonna be king in the moto three championship as evidence by the fact that tonio lino has two wins yet he's still thirty one points back meanwhile guys like cannot end teleport who only score points every single race there you're top two now i'm not saying they don't have to win i mean those guys gonna have to win if they wanna stay in it and in fact i think any of those top four that we mentioned heavy legitimate shot at making a run at the championship but as of right now because the winds are spread out so thin it's really shaping up to be more about where you're finishing on a regular basis throughout the season rather than you know whether you've captured a couple of wins here and there so motive three was a ton of fun and that took us on the moto to end i think we can all admit that there have been a couple of snooze this year emotive to a but sunday's race in that said more than made up for all of them man that was crazy crazy race for the first two thirds this thing was every bit as close as intense as you're typical moto three ray she had the big pack you had lots of jockeying for leading the whole thing was kind of a bit of a free for all but it was more than that though because the real surprising part where the guys leading that parade of craziness apparently before the race somebody must have sat down both brad bender in saint louis and said you remember back a long time ago when you used to be good yeah just go out there and do that today and that's exactly what they did i mean it didn't quite work out furloughs he was back up to his old tricks by membranes making a beeline for the gravel trap although it wasn't his fault there was some extra curricular contact their firm or hey mark team but hey though is par for the course a motive to win sunday a bender though he totally looked like the rider that we saw back in the last half of two thousand seventeen the last few races of two thousand seventeen and the last entire half of two thousand eighteen confidently leading the way and then not being afraid the mix it up when those top guys came knocking and they did come knocking because after all a v action during this race when it came to go time when it came down to really make the decision who is gonna when we suddenly had like be ideal battle for the victory three time winner alex marquez going head to head with three time winner lorenzo bob sorry let's see what you guys got and all of a sudden a disaster astra strikes lorenzo man that's what is it about people name lorenzo i don't understand this wasn't interesting wreck because now the sorry whimpering league just the slightest bit too aggressively my he really wasn't pushing that far over the edge from what it looked like on the broadcast and then the front end just started shattering horribly on him that made him look deli slip brighton marquez in one fell swoop both ear main championship protagonists gone in this race they also went the chance for what could have been a heck of a battle to the finish i'd so desperately wanted to see those guys battle it out all the way to the end so and you know here's the thing though with that the stewards review the incident to see if any penalties should be handed out and they didn't which i think was the right call i mean that was something that could happen to anyone and i do give the sorry eight lot of credit for going alex his pit box to apologize knowing how upset little marquez was bound to be so in general i think everybody handled everything properly bob sorry should have gone over there and said something right away alex should have listened to him when he came over to apologize and that's what happened and nobody was handed a penalty which i think is what should have happened i do however think that race direction needs to have a conversation with marquette's that's all right now the sorry with alex marquette's i know he was pissed off i would have been to a but with that being understood stood there is no coffer running over in pushing baldassare in the gravel trap and then after that trend the kind of pulling away from the bike a cause the bikes were kinda tangled together at that point when he did in in hindsight it wasn't a big deal about the sorry got up walked away he was okay but at the point where alex ran over to an kind of pushed him after he yelled at him balbo sorry was in the gravel and not getting up and there could have been so many reasons for that he could have been injured he could have been trapped under the bikes i mean i get that alex was upset and understandably so but you can't just go shopping a guy who may be injured risking making it worse or trying to push a guy who may be trapped under a bike and because of that he does get injured you make sure the guys okay then you start shoving how it should have worked out so i think they should talk to him about i think they should tell them hey in that situation you've got to keep you ahead about you because you don't want to cause an injury because if he wasn't injured or if he was an alex made it worse would then he is gonna get penalize after he got taken out of a race so to be a double whammy so don't put yourself in that position man you gotta take a breath first second you still love yell at the guy and then when you find out he's okay well maybe you start shoving him although i don't think anybody's but it's gonna be terribly intimidated when alex marquez comes up and wants to shove you know the biggest beneficiary of all of that may am with bob sorry teammate gosto fernandez who is set up perfectly the two guys in front of them now been taken out of the guy behind them brad bender had already warned the tires off the bike so this was the perfect situation and fernandez have been knocking on the door multiple times this season he finally gets a chance to show off what he can do and get his first win so is a great moment for him open up by his own teammate making a big big mistake 'em but brad been there i will say this augusta fernandez it was great to see him get the win will talk more about him in a second but brad been there for me with the big surprise in this one outside of all the crazy rex he just hadn't been able to establish anything this season no consistency no real rhythm i mean nobody at kpmg has at any level except for pull a small grow but he got it all put together for this race but this this is a good sign for him especially having kind of established himself the past two seasons as a second half rider emotive to he may he may be able to take this momentum into the summer break and then make a run at the points in the second half i mean he's not that far out right now a couple other writers i wanna talk about starting with a very angry alex marquez and yeah he might have been taken out of this race unceremoniously in through no fault of his own but the fact of the matter is that he was fast enough to win his fourth consecutive race and strategically directly he ran very very good race a so they in fact in the points which will talk about in the second shouldn't do too much i don't think to derail his quest for the title because he's still riding very confidently and very fast right now and that's something we haven't seen across the entire season emotive to for alex marquez but he seems to be establishing that right now lawrence about the sorry yes he did make a mistake almost his biggest other lorenzo made a few weeks ago go but the fact that he was battling for the league at the time is a good sign for him as well since he had lost all of his forward momentum over the past couple of rounds so unlike alex he's still has some work to do to get things back on track one hundred percent if he chooses to take the positives out of this one it's a step in the right direction but it just as easily could knock him back a little bit in costumed put too much pressure on himself heading in the sack simmering a look a marine he he definitely has not been the title contender we thought he might be at the beginning of the season but he's slowly starting to move up both in the running order in the championship points is well he is definitely capable of being in this title hunt still but he needs to start to rein in the inconsistency played the last year and it's already plaguing him to start the season as well on the opposite of that is tom lucy i mean this should have been a great day for him but it turned out to be really nice even though he didn't finish on the podium and will talk about effect in the points in a minute but the big thing from me with lucy right now is his inability to make that big push at the end of the race for the winner in this case the podium that's still a bit concerning until he can get that back on a consistent basis 'cause i used to be his home art you know lame racist he would just show up bb be there he finished second he finished third and if he does that while being able to find a way maybe here and there will he will one hundred percent be a factor in the championship but he's gotta be able to make that pushing the last couple of laps to ensure that he gets on the podium especially when he gets a gift of the top two writers taking himself out so you're podium in this one goes still fernandez his first ever moto to win any thrilling one at that a bread been there hey welcome back to the podium it's his first trip to the box this year in this person says win last season in australia that looking brainy rounds out the top three it's been kind of a slow start for him but now bernie has podiums in two of the last three races any starting to build some legitimate momentum for the season in the championship chip well belda saris mistake gave his teammate the whim but it also handed tom lucy the championship bleed lucy becomes an unlikely title leader by slim six point margin over these previously surging marquez fernandez is way moves into a pretty surprising third overall twenty five points back within realistic striking distance a whore hey navarro trails by twenty eight and baldessarri still isn't out of it if he can get some consistent speed back and start to win like he was at the beginning of the season he's only twenty nine behind it back even guys and you know like marine ios just mentioning it marshall shorter are within thirty six points and i think any of those guys i just mentioned are capable of making a run at the motor to title it's really all gonna come down to whether alex marquez can keep this momentum up or not and if he goes back to his old and wreck here win here ways well any of those guys could jump bam it's still a crowded field right now even though marquez really does have to be considered to be the favorite at this point a so motive three was crazy moto so to is crazy the primary class well motor gp was in the race that others were but that doesn't mean that it was necessarily bad this one was a slow burn today others big bang with a couple of surprises just tossing couple of big surprises tossed in the first one where those suzuki riders both of those guys jumping to the front on lights out for an unexpected suzuki one to only to see alex rinse chuck it up the road while leading the race he finally gets a good qualifying effort he gets to the front end the track where he absolutely could have won this race because it was far more about handling and agility then about straight line speed and then he tanks it whether you're gonna do a so that was the first surprise the second was the rider that they handed the league to in fabio culture are owen he led eight surprisingly large portion of this race despite a bike that wasn't cooperating an arm starting to bother am end oh oh yeah marc marquez breathing down his neck be entire time and then at that point that's where the whole slow burn thing kind of came in he had this tense standoff between marquez yamaha's of fabio ferraro mavericks and yellows and one that shockingly yamaha one mark said coming into this race said he expected it to be him versus yamaha's and i think that most of us thought that mark would win that battle but no yamaha's one end this was a huge a huge victory for mavericks in y'all as an yamaha in general and heartfelt one i mean if you think back to you know a couple of rounds into the season i think most of us aren't sure if mavericks and yellows would win at all this year let alone be the first yamaha on the top step after the past few rounds there's probably a better chance that patrolling us was gonna be a race winner before the factory yamaha guys and least of all mavericks and yell at but not only did he win but he was able to do so by going head to head with marc marquez and how long how long it'll be we've been waiting for maverick maybe i'll as marc marquez head the head anyone murray shootout since two thousand seventeen i born the see these guys go up against each other and we finally got it wasn't exactly the scenario that i would have preferred to be but it was still a pretty good race i mean when mark pass madam apple is able to come right back by taking advantage of mark's mistake stake after he made a mistake and then he was able to hold mark off and he will talk about marking a second and yes he did reach a point where he was like all right you can have it but still i wanna see this race for so long in at least we finally got a little bit pay off even if it wasn't you know the classic mark dovy type a shootout that we've gotten accustomed to over the past couple of seasons but this win is not only a momentum builder but it also may may have confirmed some of the gains that yamaha claimed to have made at the catalonia tests have they turned a corner while not permanently i mean the power deficit is still gonna be there no matter what and they did come a point in this race where mark having chosen the soft rerun thinking of the championship did decide that the points were more important really truly taking it imagine the closing laps but it was still a big win over offer maverick then y'all s and moving the markets were talking so much about and this is the perfect example perfect example example of just what happens when you give mark mark has a big league in the championship you given too many options he has too many ways the beach you mean he was he only rider up there at the front that had chosen to go with they softer tire and it was a gamble is a gamble on a fast start big leads strategy why wasn't able to make that gamble well because he had a big point league coming into the race and then when that didn't work out and he found himself battling with coach ferraro end with mavericks and yell as well because he had that big point leave he is able to make a choice at that point do i rescued against the dallas or do i take the points and run it and that's exactly what he did and he wouldn't have had that decision to make if you didn't have the big points late if he desperately needed those last five points when now he's got to go ahead with all the way to that final kane and there's eight far bigger chance that he makes a mistake and we've seen that happen in the past ducati knows that that was part of their strategy the shares were gonna keep the points it's closer were gonna put pressure on mark so he makes mistakes and beats himself you given that big point leed he can choose the strategy multiple ways during the race and that means he's got multiple ways to beat you in the championship and of course he knew at that point that alex sir instead already racked out that andre admits he also was behind them so there is no reason to make things more exciting than they needed to be took a shot mad passed back is like it's just gonna be another step in my march toward the championship who cares if i don't get the win this time around and like i said that's what happens when you delete 'em the guy i really wanna talk about in this race though fabio quad charro in one major reason that i wanna talk about in his composure i mean here's a guy who is in is eighth moto gp race ever but he looks like a veteran out there i mean winning the poll is one thing that that is a lap all by yourself it's not easy but the pressure is finite you know i mean you're racing against the clock you're not racing against maverick many outlets on one side marc marquez on the other side and whoever else that's thrown in there as well but you get into the race end before he could even think about anybody else who is battling his own bike i mean that patrolling the seattle house bucking all the way down the backstretch even before the commentators noticed it he was a he was squarely through the first couple of turns and then he owned the backstretch i mean he was everywhere right but he stayed on the throttle until it got to the point where it was finally too bad me had the back off a little bit and then when my kids were able to use that weakness to get by in any other rookie any other rookie in that scenario would have been like oh well i got pass by mark my race is over but no not fabio charro he did not shy away from striking back and he passed marc marquez not many people can say that they pass marc marquez when mark without a hundred percent and they were in regular dry race conditions it's not a small thing and then once he got passed by both mavi mark and he knew that he was you know not gonna win the race he was still easily able to manage the bike to be on for a second straight podium for a while it looked like he had a legitimate shot to win against the best writers riders in the sport in that loan for me made things exciting all the way through a remote wasn't around left fifteen sixteen her so that mark finally passed them but those fifteen on the majority of those first fifteen laps i don't know about you but i was only edge of my seat because i really wanted to see how the whole thing was gonna play out because you knew that marquess measuring things up you knew he was running his race where he's looking for the weakness he's waiting to make his move but it wasn't that simple because mark had soft tire well both of those yamaha's had the hard tire and we didn't know how well mark who's gonna be able to manage that at the end of the race i mean yes of course d affects of warren tire are minimized when you're marc marquez because well new simply are that good you're marc marquez but as we saw us maverick and yell as his rear tire held out better indiana marks in those part of the reason that mark decided no just settled the twenty points but it's audio cultural had not been having those problems with the bike just going haywire fire on the backstretch and getting tank slappers every time where you had the back out of the throttle then there was a real chance that he could have been up there with mad at them because matt spike lee's doing that a little bit too but not nearly as badly as bitterness a yamaha was so for me that was the most thrilling part of this race was watching all three of them knowing that we had different tire strategy and we had three riders with three distinctly different goals and motivations in this race and i was waiting for it to come down to the end and like i said we got no k race if they end but once mark decided okay it's over then it's just kind of a cruise to the win from africa and y'all as and because of all of those problems that fabio cultural was having he wasn't able to get up there and really compete but he was so impressive impressive to me because of his ability to shake off all the other stuff his arm of the bike the the pit bull when the pit board says plus zero marquez me most turkeys are gonna collapse under that pressure but he did not i i don't know if it's all just beginner's luck will find out as the season goes along but as of right now fabio ferraro is incredibly impressive on that bike moving on adria wc oh so he did the best he could end the best you could do is fourth i'm sure that they're gonna be headlines about how there'll be throwaways chance to win the championship in this race but that's not really the case i didn't think he was gonna be able to beat mark in this one i don't know why anybody else did and the fact that he didn't shouldn't be that much of a surprise so when you think about it logically w is definitely going to lose points in this race but i think it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been me dovy got a bit of a gift from africa and yellows because he kept mark from getting five extra points so instead of losing twelve points than dovy only lost seven so in the grand scheme of things it wasn't eight bad race for him but obviously it wasn't what he needed in the championship but i don't think he was gonna get what he needed in the championship in this this race not unless mark made a big mistake a couple of other writers i wanna talk about real quick franco morbidelli he showed up at church you what happens when you get caught sleeping on the last lap heading into that asking chicane franco pulled off a great move coming to the line fine and patrol is backed up their momentum in catalonia by putting both riders in the top five in the dutch t t wrestle elmer's ali must be on top of the world right now input church he should have seen that move coming in he didn't so that was on him those his mistake there a joy mirror feed it lay but he looked impressive any opening laps he now has backed back topic finishes so he's starting to get comfortable on that suzuki and then jorge lorenzo lorenzo did not run this race minimum he's gonna be out per sack fact simmering as well he fractured vertebrae in his back well of course it's in his back it's vertebrae 'em he fractured vertebrae and he i did it in his practice wreck this weekend or possibly he did it back at the catalonia tests and that really big one because he started complaining about his back hurting then and then after the wreck this weekend he complained about it again he was examined at the track and they said oh you're okay but fortunately the team after the one this week and said you know what let's go get a second opinion at the hospital they did more tests some more x rays and whatever and they figured out that he had a fractured vertebrae said that's scary stuff unfortunately they caught it because think about it if it was already fractured and then he had gone out in the race in wrecked again it could have been really really bad so it's good they caught it it sucks he's gonna have to miss races especially after they've changed up the bike in catalonia forum so hopefully he recovers quickly me get the same on track i imagine were one hundred ten percent gonna see stuff on bravo in germany home track for him he is hondas test rider and then we'll see how far it's gonna be until the rental comes back with an injury like that and the chance to reenter at i think there's gotta play this one a little cautious and in in addition the saxon rang i would not be surprised if he misses one more race after that so they can make sure that everything heels and then come back one hundred percent or close to one hundred percent and speaking of wrecks and potential injuries really good here that now they're valentino rossi nor talking knocker gummy were injured in that wreck another really fast one in fact jorge lorenzo's rack in addison wasn't all that that avai wreck i mean he just lost the front end who's just going so fast at the time that when he he hit the gravel he started rolling really violently so with all of those guys and all these other wrecks some really big wrecks this weekend it's good to hear that everybody walked away without anything major with the exception of lorenzo and hopefully he recovers quickly so you're pony minnesota mavericks and yell at us his first win of the year yamaha's first win of the year any huge boost but but we are still going to be wondering heading into the sack simmering this weekend if it was a one off or if they had some sort of real breakthrough so in other words it's the same old yamaha story despite the win a second with marc marquez he didn't win it doesn't really matter the points raleigh muted then rounding out the podium fabio potrero and you remember how good joins arco was in his rookie year well that season he had three podiums fabio cultural already has two podiums in his first state races in three polls on top of that as of right now like i said i don't know if it's just beginner's luck but as of right now the sky is the limit and yamaha better be really really smart about him if he continues the ride the way he has because we saw arco ride really really well and yamaha treated him like they didn't care about anyone off ktm wasn't one percent wasn't gonna stick with yamaha so they better learn from that lesson because of quote ferraro keeps performing the way he does they're gonna need to make sure that they have some sort of plan in place to make him happy and keep him around i'm in the championship well other two series things got more interesting motor gp not so much a mark safe second netted him twenty points on the day and his overall leader expands to he very very daunting thing forty four over andre adept at seo so then it'll patricia is third he's third in the championship now that is very impressive but he's over two races back fifty two points adrift a those guys move up all thanks alex rinse a he drops the fourth with the rack he's fifty nine points behind and with three straight zero point races valentino rossi is now in possible eighty eight points behind marc marquez if you're on the camp that thinks it's not over yet well you gotta admit that things are not looking very good for the challengers right now despite the fact that mathematically they're all one hundred percent in it so it's my take on the weekend well ask him for me he was all about moto three emotive to where we had a pair of wide open races with plenty of action plenty of intriguing a lot of swapped paint surprising about a motor gp couldn't match the fender banging goodness of the first two races but it's still found it to be a nail biter thanks to the combination of a rookie struggling veteran both trying to figure out the puzzle that is beating marc marquez and the fact that one of them dead made things that much more interesting to watch nbn so it was a great motor three race it was me best moto to race of the year and then we add a motor gp race that had enough tension to make it entertaining to watch a so that's my opinion of the dutch titi what did you think leave your comments on facebook am right at facebook dot com slash murder week dot net and go read it and go are slash motor weekend will talk about what you had the say on the full show later this week along with the writer reaction ass and then were going racing again that's right there is no time off we're headed straight the germany with are full preview of sacks and bring you don't wanna

Episode 7: Mark Levy

"I'm looking at the evidence so close, I can touch it. Just got to get over that free weight. I start to see the horizon moving up the windshield. Now that to any pilot learn how to fly. That's the cue that you stop to sink. Walk him to another edition of there. I was a podcast where we put you in the cockpit with pilots in interesting situations, and we learn how they flew out of them. I'm your host, Richard McFadden. Today's episode is the audio version of a conversation I had with Mark Levy, British Airways, captain and relatively new p fifty one pilot when he experienced an engine failure, nece p fifty one. He stopped by my hanger here on Frederick and we chatted about his incident. And it just so happened that during this episode Mark had a couple of gopro cameras mounted on the p fifty. One one was on his helmet in one was on the top of his canopy. They came through in excellent fashion. The videos are in great shape, and we're grateful to Mark for sharing his story. This and his compelling video. So the video has been out for about a week or so now, and it's getting a lot of traction on our air safety institute dot org website and our YouTube channel. And there's been a lot of buzz and excitement around them. So after you listen to this podcast, please go to that and watch this video. Out here in hangar be five at Frederick airport and look who's stopped by thirty year British Airways pilot, Mark Levy, interesting background. He started flying when he was an air traffic controller and the British system at aged nineteen. At that time, you had to get a pilot's license to be a controller. Loved flying in from there, went on and flew. Commercially has been with British Airways now influence seven forty sevens. Seven fifty, seven, seven sixty seven's pretty much. It sounds like about everything in the fleet. But interestingly, he's also Warburg pilot. And so he was just chatting with me about an incident. He had recently in his p fifty one. So Mark, thanks for stopping by the hanger problem. So do you mind sharing with us a little bit? You were talking about relatively new Warburg pilot flying one of your. I p fifty one sorties coming out of your checkout training, and then you have a pretty interesting incident happened. Yeah, I've been flying ashes since nineteen eighty nine and most recently in yacht fifty airplanes we have a small robotic team back in England, but like my most pilots was wanted to fly wolf. Boards and I got my shot this summer. I can't. I went across to Florida and I did some flying with stallion fifty one, the well-known fifty-one checkout experts. Operation. That's right. And they have an obsolete topnotch instructional setup down there. I did three trips, four hours. We should not the full checkout, but he gave me a really good appreciation. The airplane came back to England and lost. Some of I was asked by an would, I like to flies airplane. Well, that didn't take too long to say that I did another two or three hours to get some time on that airplane. And then I was asked to fly the pretty one of the biggest wool bird shows in the world Duxford in England. It was a pretty big formation you're in at the time, right? Yeah, sure. I mean, it's it's a two day I show and I had two slots to fly flew with a couple of other p fifty one's in the first slot of the day, which was a more dynamic flight posture. But the I think it's the same thing happens that chino in California that code at the end. The signature piece is a lodge flypast. We called it the Balbo after the Italian guy who is twenty one airplanes we fly Boston a great big formation for the crowd at the end of the show, and. That have gone successfully on the Saturday of the show old been? Well, it'd been the first time I've done it. No, some challenges involved, but it had gone well, and then we were coming into the second day first slot gun. Well, we onto the the Balboa flight at the end and we had done I two passes the back section of the formation of broken away. I know we have today and was set up into our individual sections undoing over headland overhead land, and that would be the end of the show on ticked off my first woman issue. Okay. Yes. So here you're coming through on your last past literally your last pass to go into the overhead. Yup. And and do what we call the breakout and land. So you're, you're telling me you were you're in the middle of initial on move, so which is for for the sake of our audience as you're in the turn and you're going to the breakout, the lead is moved you to the other side of the formation's, right? Yep. So you're moving from the left side. You're in this move to the right side of the formation, the number three position, and then well, obviously, visit sitting amount of throttle movement to stabilize in the full nation. And as I was pulling up next. To the number two, our plane, the engine quit, maybe two, three seconds. Yeah. And then it started again and there's just that instantaneous startled moment when you just go what and the brain discos and it's, but the fact that it started again, you go into the instant denial. What must have been some water in the gas or something. In retrospect, this is Marlon engine. It's gulping forty gallons. Now, even at low settings, it's not going to be wondering the fuel, but you just you go into denial. Yeah, and you want to believe everything's okay? Yeah. And so so so why must have been something I started to move back up again, move the throttle again equipped again this time for a lot longer, and I realized pretty much that point, hey, you're gonna have to deal with this. Okay. And so relative position now you're, you're basically on the down win, but you guys had extended through the show, so you're you're sort of on the departure of the runway or maybe even not quite we, we would tuning from crosswind down win. So we're maybe two or three miles away from the field with the. Critical thing with an airplane of this size and this energy, there was no energy. I'm an airplane we we would the brief flypast spe-. One hundred ninety miles an hour. We maybe two thousand feet turn down wind. So I've got no energy. Okay. When that ending quits, this is a seven thousand pound airplane. It this, you know, there's, there's this no energy to like trade it a little bit of speed for height, maybe gain a couple of hundred feet. So I'm starting my engine out from say, eleven twelve hundred feet. One hundred ninety miles an hour. Airplane best glide is one hundred, fifty miles an hour. So it doesn't take much to work out. There's no lot of energy out to to their. No. So after the second time. So this sort of realization that you've got an issue takes over and now you free near speed for outlet. Yep, essentially. And to a certain extent, you know, I was a fi up SP to a lot of students about engine failures isn't a certain amount of that learnt behavior starts to happen. So I'm I'm thinking, okay, let's see what's best glide sleep. Let's get the aircraft to his best line speed configuration. Yank flaps are up. And then start to look for your field. Now, fortunately, not part of England's. It was mid July. There's plenty of big cornfields out that most them around about sixteen hundred feet long, some two thousand feet long. So plenty to put a p fifty one on an absolutely Richardson choice. So I could pick one on one. I sent the airplane up. The engine was at this point not running, so I'm now kind of regressing to patterns of behavior which I've been grain over over years. So I'm getting airplane the right speed crank the canopy open because obviously I don't wanna canopy shutting me if I'm gonna put the airplane down and I'm thinking, okay, this is not the my best day. An engine starts again. Okay. And this is the problem. This is not an engine failure. This is a intimate partial engine. I think you know, we talked about this. This is probably much more dangerous than a straight engine quitting. Yeah, you and I were talking about that earlier, how much more challenging that is because your mind goes back and forth between that can make an can't make it. I mean engine out best field scenario to know I can make the airport scenario. Yup. And flipping that back and forth is much more challenging than having to face one situation or the other. And as it's proven from the videos that every time the engine quit and I was so near the ground, I had to make decisions looking out the cockpit, so had very little time to actually do full funding isn't the COPA. In fact, what anytime I was able to do full funding was when the engine was running again and I was gaining a little bit of height and I look inside because the engines running. Yeah, it's not showing me any of the symptoms as to why the engines failed. Right. Okay. Engine then stops. I could look out again, so it's it's really tricky backboard. Now, at what point you had the first engine failure than the. Kind of disbelief. It comes back then the second. What point did you did you make a mayday call? Did you notify your flight? How'd you handle the? The whole calms part of that. Will you can see on the video? I pressed the the radio button, which is one on the throttle after the second engine failure. I can't remember exactly because the tape doesn't pick up the sound, but I think I put out a pan. Cool. Remained a cool Senegal engine failure on might be lending out. But at that point, you know, the one, the first thing that goes is hearing. So with anybody replied to that way, but he sent anything. I was tasks cheering to the point on the hearings of thing to go say. The next thing I heard was that she women much near at the field. That's a really critical point. You made it. We should be reminded that when you get task saturated one, the first thing that goes is your ability to process new information, correct. Such as you're hearing is the right word. So yeah. Interesting. All the sounds may be there. People may be telling you stuff, but you're focused on some tasks and you're completely saturated, and you won't hear any of that stuff. Oftentimes interesting point which became a problem later on, we'll get to so so now you're, you're set up on. Basically the perch right where you're kind of a beam, your touchdown point, but you're one eighty out and your engines in and out running is, is that right? And now what happens from here? Well, as the video shows, I had another couple of engine phase up point, but each time the engine failed could see I'd go pretty good selection the field to go into, but Mike can unnatural. Animal instinct to take me back towards the on Seoul, the fueled appearing out my left hand side. I'm thinking, hey, I've got a, I've got a chance it. I was maybe four or five hundred feet hundred fifty miles an hour. The engine running admittedly caught, maybe I'm going to go down the second half of the dime when leg. I'm going to turn based place to final, but I'm thinking he might be able to make this. And then I made no mistake that point the talk and see the hood. My cool. I was kind of approaching base leg and they start in the shot at me gives not and gives down. Is my tusk such ration- going on. Again, someone gives you an instruction on the chimpanzee at the back of the head say, I can do that. Yeah, I can do that. So I put the down which engine sled to run down again. So I'm not drag of. I've got one hundred eighty degrees at turn to go. And that was a dumb thing to do, but I'm the engine still intimate and they're running at this point. I'm thinking. It may be right now. I've got a freeway between me an f. l.. So so you you put the gear down in the engine now, quits again, so now you got the added drag and you got the engine that's quit. You're you're basically on a base darn right that you're on a base around tight based on previous. You thought you could probably make it with the engine right? Because when the engine will come back, you would have full power, right? It wasn't as if you'd have intermittent power. I had had some pilot we it wasn't a little pie otherwise, the climb because I was still just about maintaining for five hundred feet. One hundred and fifty miles out throughout these engine failures with previous a slew also height. Yeah. Okay. And then so what happens from there? Well, I'm say about how if we ran the base turn, I can see the final approach a little bit of flap down it still running and then you can quit again and this time equipped for longtime their plane starts to sink. I'm looking at the f. it's just it's close. I touch it. Just got to get over that freeway. Just the feel, but the key, they the two key things for me happen at this point. Richard was I start to see the. Horizon moving up the windshield now that any Pont who's learn how to fly. That's the cue is dump to sink. Yeah, and that's the point where you'd normally put power on, right? Yeah, I don't have any power. The second thing is I don't have a lot of time in the airplane, but I, I've flown the airplane enough to know his characteristics and the airplane talks to you, talk to the gun ports, the the gun ports whistle on a p fifty one as the angle of attack increases. And that point the rise movement, windshield the gum starting to whistle. This airplane is about to stop flying us. You're telling me that those gun ports really only whistle at two different occasions one when you're at the start of a loop. Yep. I think right when you get pretty higher speed and go into a loop. Yup. And the second one was hangover attack right before you touchdown normally? Yep, it's they still have to whistle and the whistle get to the higher as you get to the touchdown angle of attack, which is a real, Cutie you that you're losing air speed and getting close to critical angle attack. All right. Yep. So amidst all of that you pick that up in the base turn with this with this decreasing airspeed. And this added Bank that you're beginning to hear this high. AMA sound that this airplane telling you that's right, which which, which any if they know they are playing well, those kind of characteristics pitch out at you, that kind of thing. That kind of thing to getting grain that'll little talk to you before the Aspen indicate will tell you that for that that makes the point of knowing you're knowing your airplane. No European. And even you didn't have that much experience in the Mustang, but you knew those fines. I mean that that was a that was huge, young recognize that. Yeah. So now what you're thinking, I can make their feel that can't make your phone starting to hear this whistling sound. Put the gear down wish you hadn't, but you suck it back up at that point or to give still well, this this point it really is instinct and experience. I can't make the field. I've got no choice as leader choice is the one that's in the shoot. So I turned away from the field clean. It's going to be an offense effort landing. And that's drummed into me in these big Warbirds three, three point airplanes you gotta pull the gear up because if that airplane tips up on its nose, it's going to be on its back. And if you're going to be able to get out, that's going to be debatable, right? So instinct. Pool together up dumped the remaining flap roll the wings level and continued to fly. This is the key thing, Richard. If anybody reads, Bob who was book, he always says, fly the airplane as far into the crash as you can, and that's gonna in the back of my head. So keep the airplane controllable. If you can keep the airplane controllable to touch them, even a better situation than if you lose control the airplane someplace in the sky, you get a wing drop respond. That's all out of your control. So fly the airplane down to touchdown, which is what I did. Yeah. And that was a critical point right for you to realize I wanna make the runway, but wishing is not a strategy right here is not gonna make the runway. So you give that up, make the recognition that you're going to be in a field here. And that point you said instincts. So talk to salute a little bit about where do those instincts come from. I mean, you only had four or five hours maybe six, maybe ten in the Mustang at this point, six or seven sorties. How is that an instinct, your thing? Where did that come from? Well, I guess from from flying. From his when I was nineteen years old. I mean, I guess I wouldn't have had those instincts as a low as pilot each hour you put on provide you do the training, the thing to do if you do these things. I mean, even when I was flying my own airplane, the act fifty, ding displays. I mean, I knew the airplanes envelope pretty well, but I always made sure every month I'll go do a spin. Do I do an engine off landing? So I could remind myself like characteristics they are playing those things that you put into your central cortex on now that to be retrieved when you need to do. Okay. So it wasn't an airplane. I was very familiar with, but just instincts. You build up the time provided you, you reinforce those instincts by Dana training. It's all very well in the hundred dollar Hamburg and flying eight to point b. but you've got to train yourself to do the difficult stuff and do it. Regular enough becomes ingrained procedure and you can cool opponent when you need it. Yeah. And so what's also interesting, I think instructive to the rest of his is having watched your video and when when people see the video, they can. See down in your cockpit, see where you're looking into some of your hand movements at nowhere in there. Do you have time to pull out a checklist? This is all memory items stuff. Are there some things than an airplane, any airplane, even a SuperCup behind us. Yep. Where you, there's no time to get a checklist. There are a few stages of flight. Were you gotta know what your reactions are going to be talked about that chiklis I mean checklist essentially, when you when you you flying career and I'm still I fly seven. Forty seven, right? Yeah, we saw intrinsic to the way we operate the airplane as a team. It's very complex airplane. But I think I think if you flying small airplanes if you're familiar with airplane, you fly regularly. Only airplanes I fly. I have a basic left to right check. That's my coalpit Chesini so's. May I go left or left to. Right. I have my Nimmo Knicks Gump will do most airplanes, and you know, got a bit more complex because airplanes fly bit more complex, but I do every time I fly. I run through them h. Time and the more you do it, the more becomes instinct jewel. Yeah, I believe check this have a place, but sitting on airplanes and I fly often. There's no way to put it. I mean, these airplanes don't have the boxes when nice little wallet chicken stick stuff down. Military plants. I on your next guy yourself, right? Most of it escon is scan flow checklist and and memory chiklis. Yeah, yeah. In fact, in my military training, most airplanes I flew there was a set of what they called boldfaced items where critical phases of flight you had to memorize item yet, and you know they would get a little overboard with him. You had to have every commonplace every period. Right? And they were trying to make a point that you must know this checklist. Exactly. And there must be no question in your mind if these things happen these steps you go through. Yeah, but you and I were talking about you had some interesting observations about your airline training and how when things happen, you have a certain amount of reaction time you call it a monkey, I think. And you've got to put the monkey back in the case. Talk about that a little bit. You know, obviously the airlines over the last thirty years have spent a lot of money and done a lot of research about how the human being interacts with machinery and how we as basically with the still the prehistoric model of the way all brings. But will the modern machinery and that prehistoric model is comes to the full. When you're under stress, we call it. We call the chimpanzee mode. You'll go back to something from the stone age, the fighter flight mode. And that's designed to put all kinds of chemicals into your bloodstream and run away from a sabertooth tiger or mammoth, which is great. If the complexity of the problem is simply turn and random running away, but he's got a complex probe in front of you that actually gets in the way you get this blind pundit comes on, you want to do something. You want to do something anything because that's what you'll prehistoric is telling you. Now with these airplanes, airline is military airplanes. You need to have an instinct which draws you back from that. Take a breath. The startle factor can actually make you do something dumb quickly. What you wanna do is can start to put the chimpanzee back in the books give yourself time to think, and then you more modern instincts will come to the fore, and you'll start to do something sensible, and we. We are trained as a good way of caging the chimp as you call it is to come up with some one of those learnt ingrain patents, which tells you to do something safe. You if you have a scant check we do with an engine failure. Okay. The engines failed access that little piece of data, right? So I'm going to change the tanks got put the boost pump on, make sure the mixers rates, the magazine bug and the action of doing something which is ingrained in your memory will start to cage and bring you back to the the molten guy, which will actually work the problem in a logical fashion. Yeah, at such interesting stuff here and I were chatting in my military training. When I flew the fifteen, they taught us the same thing in and I don't think it was quite as well refined, but an essence, they had a three second reaction time built in any off problem that you had. And so what they would try to instill in us is take three seconds and make the optimum decision, not one second and have a reactive decision. It's it's, it's it's two sides of the same. Same view point. Yeah. And and the whole now I think about it in your, I think what they were trying to get us away from is that and you don't. You don't you think only three seconds, but I think three seconds is a long time. You can do a lot of bad things in three Sehgal shirt. So taken that taking that time to process it like you're talking about and then move into the move into the reaction that you've so ingrained in your mind. Right, to put the chimpanzee back in the back in the cage that that's really good instruction. So there you are. You've you've, you've cranked up the gear, or you've raised the gear. You said you raised your flaps a little bit, not dump the flaps, all the way. All the way. All, we'll just a slow the touchdown. We're talking about energy dissipate energy. So if you can get your flops, all the way done touchdown, the lowest possible speed without losing control the airplane. That's energy dissipates and that's going to be in your favor. Yeah. Let's talk a little bit about you make the decision to pull the gear up and you said just a few minutes ago that's pretty critical in in some of the war birds you fly because you're dangerous, really flipping in off air pure off airfield Landingham had that conversation a lot with different people. I fly navy on a lot in my my, I've always had the same position that if I had to go offer field in a rough field, even if I thought it was rough, I'm gonna take my chances gear up where than the gear down for that. Same for that same reason, do you think that trend's transfers and beyond the war birds that you fly? What about if you're flying in Mooney? I know you've flown a lot of different g. a. airplanes in your background, what you're cooking gear up or gear down. I think I think gear up I'm in the thing you've got to remember is an on. It's probably more difficult for an uphill it is that that airpl-. Lane has let you down. You've got to move on to the point where this airplane, you may have this airplane for thirty years. You polish it every Sunday that Shebib once that engine is failed, their planes let you down. I'm not. Our plane is now a, it's a cop show for dissipating energy. It's it's to save your life. Use the airplane in the best way to do that. Now, if you've got a Mooney you want, maybe I'll put the gay down. We can. We can say this, I won't trash. The proper won't tries to kind of because I know how much the, you know, Colleen costs that are playing his. You'll survival captial and use it for such. So if you're gonna put it into field, you won't airplane a slowdown as quickly as possible. You don't want to run through the end. Yeah, put the gear up airplanes can be fixed. People come. Interesting concept, their market that mental transition from saving my airplane to saving my life and using the airplane as a vehicle to do that and dissipating that energy over his long period as you can. Yep. So even that is going through your mind in this pretty pretty short time span, you got because you were a couple of hundred feet. When you finally decided to this is not gonna make it right, and you're just watching your video from the point that happens. I don't know. It felt like you had ten seconds in and you in the field. Yeah, I, I mean, I'm I'm somewhat disappointed that I didn't do some things that I always made sure my students practice when we did practice engine failures and in I'm very open about it. I didn't do a lot of things right, but that's the one thing I did do right with turning away, but having turned away, like you said, maybe a hundred and fifty. I'd vital Tonto anything. So for me, the prior to is to get the traveling up and get the flap down. The one thing I didn't do, which I should have done was turn the magnitude off because you consider I've now instead of having made a decision about when. To put off into feel some wet down wind, which is a tough decision to make when engine starts and stops. That's why a partial failures much more dangerous than a than an actual complete failure. That point I was committed. I was down at so the twenty feet on the gay traveling up. It was going to be an off EPO landing if the engine had picked up on that point, that wouldn't have been great. So I really shouldn't have the magnitude off and I was disappointed. I hadn't done that. But like you said, I had maybe ten seconds and make decision. Yeah, and you can. You can Monday morning quarterback this any much any way you like, but it it's an okay, which is why I really appreciate you taking the time to talk to us about the lessons learned so that if any of us get in that situation, hopefully some of these things will come back to our mind, but we were talking earlier about, you know, airplanes can be fixed, your airplane went in you. You hit a concrete pillar with your wing, it turns it sideways. So basically cheers, at least part of the wing off your gear up the props, all dented people be able to see in the video. And yet you were telling me that it's going to be back flying for this year's airshow the well. I mean, it's because I put the aircraft into field just away from the show site in. I was joined by the aircraft owner. The aircraft is insurance broker, Steve Hinton, the guy that ran the show and they rule around discussing stuff, and the owner was was fantastic. He just said, look, don't worry, you'll find the airplane can be fixed on air police being fixed. We chipped it out to to the states about a month after the accident. A new wing has been built. The fuse laws has been checked over the engines away, getting stripped down and that will come back on the airplanes should be flying sometime in the next months I think is crossed if all goes, well, I should be flying same airplane at the same show and your later. Yeah, hopefully when the better is hopefully where you're takeoffs and landings equal. Correct. So let's see. So you're you're in the field. We pick it up again airplanes come to a stop. You were telling us that as you hit the field, the crops were a little bit higher than what you can see. There was a concrete post their jackson-lee slid into with your right wing, right? Which kind of, yeah, they kinda turn to fields into one, but when the pharma did that, he said the crops, but he didn't take out one of these concrete posts which dates back from the nineteen thirties when they built the fuel because the regime was actually took part of that, that field was part of the NFL put the freeway. And so that was just that the farm presuming new around he'd used to plow around it. But I didn't say I didn't have much choice. Yeah, but it hit about six feet in from the right wing tip. So I got a card yours. I touchdown and that's really the only injury I got. I got a bit of a stiff neck for the next couple of days off to that just from the your touchdown. But the video shows as being quite violent, do celebration was quite strong. It wasn't actually that bad. Yeah. And you had cranked the canopy back. So I fly navy on has. Sliding canopy and we have similar issues in that in frequently off airport landings the canopy will will bind. And if you haven't kicked, you know, pulled it back. You'll be trapped inside the airplane and several navy on owners have. So that was that was something that you did pretty quickly was I noticed it's pretty quickly you crank. Three of them. But then again, that's reverting to previous type. The previous types I hide you couldn't. You couldn't actually jettison the kind of peace. Oh, the option was open. The canopy the actual military manual for the p fifty. One says in an airport, lending jettison, the kind of so I didn't do that. So again, it's something in question, was it the correct thing to do. The trouble was at the point where I was definitely committed to off airport landing. I was over the freeway. So if I had jettison the county, three hundred pounds of perspex landed on somebody's head. So maybe it was probably just as well. I didn't. Yeah. And unite Chad about that. We're not making your emergency somebody else's emergency ideally is is definitely something that goes through my daily. You don't want to do that. So you've landed, you've come to a stop. I think we we. You've mentioned that it took about one hundred feet from the time you hit until it dissipates. Energy standard is all you need. If you've got so much friction, the belly, the airplane, let crop airplanes still very, very quickly and it has actually modified one. I'm going to look for next time. I'm flying in an airplane. Airplane stopped pretty quick. Yeah, and sitting in case of a retractable airplane with the gear up, it gives you more options of fields. I mean, I told my students, you want, you know, you want at least two thousand twelve hundred feet of of pasture to Landon in Cherokee or assessment because he's going to roll because it's got fixed and all of us and stuff. If you'll flying retractable airplane and you keep the gear up, you're looking for a really small field long as you get over that boundary fence. Yeah, get it down. It will stop relieve me. Yeah. So you're sitting there and it comes to rest. There's no fire you made it. I think in your video you make an immediate call, let your flight members. No threes. Okay. It was a nice thought, unfortunately antennas under the wing, and that was snapped off some bad back in. So they didn't hear it. But I'm thinking of my buddies. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, it was a good. It was a good thing to think about, and and now you just get out and and egress and wait for the week for the folks to arrive at that point. Adrenaline starts to draw Yahoo that and you say always smokes, holy smokes, and and inevitably thing I've just broken this, beautiful airplane. What are they going to and from? I think we were look at it and from the everything's going great. One hundred and four seconds later you're in a field with gear up and your p fifty one going well and four second hundred and four seconds, and that's that's the time I had to do with it. You know, it would have been shorted if he'd been a complete engine fainted but said the complexity is probably doubled tripled because you've got the thing coming and going coming and going and you processes which starts in one direction after then go through a hundred eighty degrees. Go back in another direction. You do that three or four times, what is. Hi. Yeah, but the important things that fly the airplane, keep the airplane in the keep the speed good. I keep your options open as much as you can try and go back on those thought processes. You've ingrained in your own head to check for the for the problems and give yourself a good plan, good options. And so we were talking about there was an engine problem. We can see in the video, you're switching tanks. It wasn't a fuel trapped or fuel issue or anything. It seems like it was some sort of problem with the engine, perhaps the carburetor, but that's still yet to be yet to be determined. Yeah, that's right. It's sunny. If you look at the video, I've got fuel pressure problems which would suggest it somewhere between the tank and the engine. But I'm told by the experts chemists off as an expert that Culbert a problems can manifest themselves in other ways. It's it's a note at the moment. Yeah. Well, you wrote a great article Mark that you shared with me on it. And in that you sorta summarize the things that you were happy with of how you did and the things that you would do differently and. First thing is, I just appreciated that that's the way you think you come out of this thing and, and you were able to save yourself and caused no damage to any other people, the airplane it'll be fixed and yet just talking to you, I can still three see you think in through the next time this happens, this is what I would do differently, which to me is such an important piece of our culture in aviation. That's how we get safer and safer afraid to put on the table and say, these were the facts. This is what I would do differently if I could do it again, few months. Summarizing that with us. What? What were you happy with? You thought went, well, what would be what would you do different? There's there's a couple of things clearly when the engine failed the first time you can see in the video, it's very short period of time on somehow I rationalized that is being washing the fuel or a bug or something. It's natural denial. Yeah, the this is a problem. I mean, I'm in an airplane. I, I'm in show ducks flying a Mustang. This is the best day in my life is gonna happen to me now. I kind of be happening to me now. I'm not denial. Probably it probably cost me another. Hundred. If I pulled out of the formation that point, maybe another hundred feet, maybe that would have got me back on the ground. If you get an engine, if you get an engine problem deal with it, don't ignore it. It's part of the startle factor, but it's something always a bit disappointed that off to that. Most of it went pretty well. Again, the canopy should I have jettison the canopy that point when I was into port lending when I was out over open fields. Yeah, maybe should have done that, but I didn't. But it's it's, that's what the manual says. Yeah, and the manual has been written by people who are generally written in blood. So that's what the manual says. That's what the money that's what you should do. But I regret I kind of reverted to previous type because I wasn't not experienced on the airplane. Thirdly down when someone shot you put down, they have no idea what's going in the culprit wh- level of emergency. You got any trying to be helpful. But remember, you know, ATC will be as hopeless. You can. You're the guy that slammed the airplane, assess what they giving you use it if he can. But if he's not, if. Relevant, don't let it overwhelm what you doing. Finally, that turn the best thing I did was turn away from the field, like you said, you could prayed in and try to stretch that glide, but then you would not in control if you're on the edge of the envelope with the airplane, that's when you you, you know, margin for error, but tuning away from the field. I keep control of the airplane and choose where I put the airplane down. Airplane, choose. Yeah. On the on the negative side. Yes. I should've had the magnitude shut off in an ideal world, but I was kind of busy that song. Yeah. And plus you're going back. We go back to the complexity of the engines run or not running around, not running convinced, you know if it if it just completely shut off, you would have gone through all that stuff. What a story? We're glad you're. We're glad you're back safe and thanks for sharing with us. It's been, I hope it's been useful to other parts of anytime. Wow, what a treat to spend some time with Mark Levy and learn from his situation as p fifty one and also benefit from some of the training. He got from British Airways and his professional experiences a pilot. They're really appreciate him taking the time to stop by the hanger and chat. Thanks for listening.

GSMC Movie Podcast Episode 112: Dumplin' and Zion

"Can't decide in torn between a romantic comedy action or an indie film to watch for the weekend. Well, we'll well. Golden State media concepts movie podcast is your ultimate guide to the latest movies. Join us is we dissect the latest on the blockbusters, it's the Golden State media concepts movie podcast. Hello and welcome to the G. S MC movie podcast. Brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I'm or host Heidi. And unfortunately, I am not joined by the wonderful, Arianna it saddens me deeply, but I am a little bit happier. Because I am excited about the films that we are going to be talking about in this movie's episode. We are talking about some net flicks extravaganza films. We will be starting by talking about the short documentary Zion. Which is great. I also learned that net. Flicks. Does short documentaries, which was a wonderful find. And I I love documentaries as you all have heard from me Arianna talking about them. We love documentaries. We loved white hats, and John is no exception thought it was great. I am very excited to talk about that. We will also be talking about the Netflix film dumpling, which is. Also, great. It is not issue documentary. It is a fully film, and it is a doorbell, and it involves Jennifer Aniston and Dolly Parton. So I don't know what there is to not like, so I'm excited to talk about that one as well. But I want to start with Zion. Probably because I liked dumpling. But this film, it just got me again, probably because I'm partial to documentaries. So that was probably part of it. But also because I am a really big fan of inspirational films and come like what I think about movies. I think about something that is inspirational and kind of like the movies that I love the most or sort of uplifting like, for example, like in the neck an underdog story or like showing the power of like mankind. I kind of think of a lot of Tom Hanks sort of movies. Where it's like, oh, he survived like, I don't know. Like, I really enjoyed the movie the post sort of this great Meryl Streep movie where she should've overcomes all this other voices and become strong and puts her paper out there and put the story out there that could bring them down. But you're just anyway because it's the right thing to do. And I just think of these really big type of films with these big stories that leave you feeling inspired and feeling like you can do anything, and, you know, stand up to the man, but I felt that when I watched this film, even though this is a short documentary. It's like, I don't know like twenty minutes, and even though it was small it gave me all of these big feelings that these larger blockbuster Hollywood movies. Give me these kind of like epic tales know, they make my heart swelled, but this movie had that same type of feeling and probably some of that is because this is a sports documentary and sports movies are always like, you know, like, overcoming or. Just like growing stronger, and what humans can do and what we're physically capable of and things like that. So usually, they're inspiring stories, and I think that's also what added to this feeling of inspiration for me this film again as I said is a short documentary. It is came out on net. Flicks. In twenty eighteen it directed by Floyd Russ and executive producer, Greg Bouche lump and producer Carter Collins also produced by Floyd Russ as well as direct by him. And this film stars Zion. Clark who is himself the documentary another character that I want to mention is the coach coach Gil Donahue, which again, he is himself in this film. And this film is so touching. It is a Netflix documentary, and it was one of two thousand eighteen most anticipated at the Sundance film festival. I see why honestly it's beautiful. It is about Zion clerk who is a young wrestler who was born without legs and grew up in foster care, and this particular part of his life that is in the documentary is him in high school, and it shows him as a high school wrestler. He has been wrestling since he was two years old, and it's not like a Special Olympics type situation. He is on the high school wrestling team with all of the other all the other wrestlers, and obviously he stands out, and it is about the story of him just as he finishes up his senior year and just like as he just talks about his wrestling career in high school, and what that really meant for him and also for his coach and just for so many other people around him, and it's this very inspirational story so to start Zion was the subject well to start about I guess where this documentary began. It really started even before it began filming. And I believe this came to the tension of Floyd rest because of a ESPN profile that was about Zaire on. It was a came out in two thousand sixteen and it was an ESPN profile and photo essay which followed Zion through the final days of his high school wrestling career. Reporter Michael MC Elroy predicted that the moments after his last match could have been something out of a movie and essentially this documentary Zion. Like is that movie it is? Gosh. I don't know. It's so inspiring. I don't I can't say that enough. I'm going to keep saying I'm sorry. Clark. Zion Clark was born with cow dull coddle regression syndrome, which is a congenital disorder that affects the development of the lower spine. So in Zion clerks case he was born without lower limbs. And then he was given up for adoption after he was born. He was shuffled from foster home to foster home about seven or eight times. And this is all what he talks about in the film. And again, I'm going to give some facts about this film. And you might feel like we'll now I know everything is only like twenty minutes, but it's not the facts that make this film. It is the heart that makes his film. So I could tell you everything that happens. And honestly, I will feel like I have not given anything away because I even knew what the movie was about before watching it. And it just still struck me just like an arrow straight to the chest. Really? So during the time that Zion. Clark was in foster care. He said that he was starved and beaten and this detail comes out in the documentary, but it wasn't actually mentioned in the two thousand sixteen profile. In fact, the ESPN features specifically noted it said, quote, he doesn't like to say much about his childhood. So clearly, this is a very painful period of his life. Kinda sounds like as he got a little older when the documentary was made after ESPN the ESPN profile. I would guess maybe he grew up a little bit. And felt like he was at a point where he could talk about this really difficult part of his life. So I'm really glad they did it when they did. Because I feel like we really got a more intimate picture of his life. Zion was eventually adopted, but he was adopted and who was sixteen and he because he'd been in foster care whole life. He really didn't have any family, and we get a little glimpse into this from in the film coach Gil Donahue, and he explains on had no family. He had no stability in his life. And like that could really be a recipe for disaster. He mentions like you could get a lot of people who just act out a lot of kids who just really bad kids. But you sort of see that Diane channel so much of this anger into his wrestling. And I on talk a little bit about his childhood. He said like, yeah. Like, I was a bad kid. I wasn't great. But when you see him in this film, and you see him wrestling, you see so much of his concentration as he's just bringing so much of this anger into the sport. And he channels it so well with the help of his coach, and it's just beautiful to watch. When Zainab began wrestling he had to like, he discovered really these new ways to feel empowered. And he also found a family through like the coach through the team. He actually John actually began wrestling before high school when he was two years old, and it was the only activity that remained constant throughout his life. No matter where he went and all the spirits, all this wrestling experience all this experience developing family on the team and with his coach it all built in to Zion senior year at his high school, which is Mizzou Mizzou lawn Washington high school in northeast, Ohio. At the end of his senior year. He finished the season with eight thirty three fifteen record which sent him to the district finals. And like, you really it's so great to watch this documentary doesn't film that particular part. But it does show clips of the match. So you see like in the event that have in the past. So it's filmed after that final match the coach again guild on a who explains that wins ion came onto the team they had to like experiment and see different techniques that would make him successful techniques that maybe couldn't use because of some of his bodily limitations, and he learned to explain what he was good at and then he really drilled into the techniques that he could use with his condition, and how that would just like make him even better and it made him an even stronger wrestler, despite what any what was going with his body. What under those things he became this, really powerful, wrestler and sports. Men, and obviously he did to go into the finals. And it's just it's just this amazing story of seeing him work with his coach who is someone that he feels really becomes like a father figure Zion. And it just like seeing him thrive and seen it looks like he has he finally came to his sense of self and power besides that besides anything going out with his body. Would anyone saw when looking at him and also to mention I would say it's not like he hated himself, or at least they never really say that in the film. It's more like because I didn't know anything different with his body. He always accepted himself for who. He was. But wrestling and becoming really good the sport gave him even more confidence. Even though it wasn't that he ever liked doubted himself, but you just see him really glow in this way. So before we continue talking about before we move on. On to a few other points that I have about the story when what gonna take a quick break. And then I'm excited to keep talking about Zahn, and hopefully inspire all of you to watch it. The Starlight lounge presents an evening with the progressive box. Let's go tickling the ivories. He just saved.

Listen, no further because this is the gold standard in using podcasts. Welcome back to the MC movie podcast. We are continuing to talk about the Netflix short documentaries Zion before the break. I mentioned a little bit about giants confidence. And how it really blossomed to be a becoming this great wrestler. But I also want to mention a part of this that really happens at the beginning that also struck me is when John goes to this high school for the first time he had to wear prosthetic legs. They made him wear prosthetic legs. Because really when you look at Diane. He looks like his whole he doesn't have any legs. So it's like down to where his legs would begin. So they made him where prosthetic leg so that he could walk it like the level that everyone else was at and just like they mentioned how like they cut into his skin. And he wasn't used to wearing them. He could be fine. He could move around without them. And he said he really felt like p. People were forcing him to look like to look more like everyone else in a kind of like more for all of their benefit not for his because he he'd never known anything else. And he felt he felt okay. With the way that he looked and the way that his body was because that's just who he was. And he knew that which is really powerful in the beginning. Because you see that. It's not like he was completely broken person. You had no self-confidence, but he is this person who became even more powerful, and that's really beautiful to watch. Also, just to see the confidence that blossomed. But then also at the end of this film when he is talking about the final match. He oh gosh. I don't want to like, I don't wanna give spoilers. It's hard. But you just see the way the coach talks about that match. And everything that's ion did and how much he cares about Zion. And how he knows just how hard. Zion worked through everything and that. Just you see his love for John. And just this part. This part got me. I got all choked up. What's happened to me twice? So really in a very short period of time. I almost just like wept multiple times. And that's how impactful the story is there's also a part where zion's adopted mother. She says a prayer over Zaylon and for him, and that part also just really touched me, it's so heartfelt. And she just has so much hope for him and his future. Stirred my heart. It was really beautiful. Also, at the end of the film, you learned that Zion went to community college after high school and then transferred to Kent state where he just continued his love of wrestling in do his college career. It also says that he is currently presuming a degree in business management. And also after this film. Diane is ranked eighth in the national collegiate wrestling sociation, and he does have aspirations for national championships and potentially even the Olympics. So it's just really great to see. I guess like both the film's Zion and dumpling talking about them because they're both on Netflix. And I think you should definitely go watch them. But also both of these films are kind of about the physical parts of these two characters lives. Well, science a character. These two peoples lives is to movie subjects and kind of how they can grow and become these better versions themselves, not necessarily because they are changing their bodies to be like everyone else, but because they are still proud of their bodies. And that it's more than just, however, they are physically it goes beyond that. And I enjoyed I guess that kind of made my week a little bit brighter is thinking about that. So from Zion. I want to move on talk about our next Netflix film dumpling. And this film was not flexible. I said it was released December seventh twenty eighteen directed by an Fletcher as I mentioned earlier, Jennifer Aniston this film, Danielle MacDonald dove Cameron, just it's a great film. It's based on a twenty fifteen novel by Julia Murphy, and really what starts about Rosie who's a character. Played by Jennifer Aniston. She is a former beauty Queen. And she hosts the annual local, MS blue, bonnet beauty contest. Her daughter willa dean who is played by Danielle MacDonald enters the contest contest after she finds a pageant application that her late her late aunt filled out for herself and willow. Deans enrollment inspires like other misfits in the town to join the pageant in an attempt to start a revolution against what beauty pageants are all about and just as Willett being goes about this journey she grows in her relationship with her friends. Learn about herself grows in her relationship with her. Mom, and also a boy who she kind of likes and who likes her for who she is. And it's it's so cute. Are you on had talked me about this previously? And she just talked about how horrible it was. And I I agree. I also film called dumpling. I feel like you know, is going to be adorable. But also, I think Jennifer Aniston is really great in this film. She plays this character. Really well character who so she's the mom Rosie's, the mom will Ledeen she's as former beauty Queen. So she's super skinny, and blond and is always thinking about how she looks. And making sure that the dress that she wears every year, this beauty pageants will always fit her, and she always starts her diet and is exercising and whatnot. But she's a character who could be so unlikable, and I was really impressed by how Jennifer Aniston was able to make her. I guess likable at least not like hate -able like she's still you don't necessarily love her. But I at least felt like I didn't hate her either. And I really could see that she did love her daughter despite sort of maybe the pressures she unknowingly puts upon her daughter willing. So I thought it was adorable. Also, in general, I would say it was pretty well executed as I mentioned, it has Dolly Parton, not because Delhi Parton shows up on the film, but because of all the deli part and songs that come into this film, willow dean loves Dolly, Parton and her aunt who aunt Lucy, whom she loved to basically raised her introduced Dolly Parton. And that's what really started her love for Dolly. I enjoy listening to Dolly Parton anyway. So I would say watching this film made me appreciate dull even more wanna listen to her music, even more. If there had been a Dolly Parton cameo. I would not have complained. I think that would have been adorable if out of nowhere Dolly Parton had showed up I would have loved it. Even though probably would have been really cheesy. I still probably were thought it was cute. But I thought it was great. It just made me want to listen to Dolly more. So they did a good job on that. Also, I do feel like this is a film that Dali Parton would want to be a part of. I don't know if she knew about it when it was just a book. But yeah, I know I thought it was great. Also, the main character willa dean, you really get to see her struggles. And her triumphs. She you know, it's not like she wants. She's not obsessed with trying to diet or trying to like, look like her mom or become the skinny girl that she feels her mom wants her to become. She doesn't want to do that. She's fine with herself. But you do see some of her insecurities about being overweight, you see her being teased and picked on and. Just you see that. It's not something that she feels a need to change. But she wishes that other people would change how they acted around her because of her weight, and I enjoyed that about this film that it wasn't about willow. Dean like fitting in with everyone else. I mean, she enters a beauty pageant, basically to take it down, which you know, again, she's not trying to be like everyone else. But you see that she has a rebellious nature, and she wants to just be able to be herself and express to her mother that she's going to be herself. It's not all about being skating, something that stood out to me about this relationship between willa dean, and her mom is that it always seemed to me that willa dean felt her mom was embarrassed by her and always wanted her to be really skinny. But I did not actually get that vibe from Jennifer innocence character Rosie as I mentioned, I don't hate that character. I don't think. She's terrible. She's not like like an evil step. Mom. I felt like I could tell that she did love willing. And she never explicitly says to her daughter you have to lose weight. I think really more than anything she just wishes her and willing. We're more similar not out of body size. But that they had more similarities and more things to share because Rosie loves the pageant Willie thinks it's silly and stupid and willing loves, you know, Dolly, but Rosie doesn't necessarily share the same appreciation. So I feel like really it's more how Rosie wants her and her daughter to, you know, maybe a closer relationship, even though she gets annoyed by willing sometimes, but I feel like in a way willa interesting her mom doesn't like her because of her weight or because she wasn't fit in because her mom was embarrassed by her and how she looks. So I would say that almost made me annoyed with willa dean throughout the film. Mm-hmm. Because other people make fun of wilting for her weight. And obviously, I hate those characters, but I don't think we're some of Wilson's anger comes from our these internalized like things that she perceives her mother feels about her and maybe in the book that is more obvious. But in the movie, I didn't see that. I will also state that this is a book, and I really felt that when I was watching it because I felt like there were parts missing. Maybe like insights into characters like what they were thinking and things that would come out more novel where you can like dive really deep into like the characters mind because you know, a book, you can have more detail and things like that. So I really felt like there were some parts and little details. Missing that I wished the movie had maybe explained a little more. I kind of wish they had gone more into like do bulletins head, and then I can understand a little bit more about her angst. I mean, maybe it's really obvious. And I just missed it. Maybe it's just that people make fun of her for her weight. And that's just what it is. And that's possible. But I felt watching there was like a little bit more in there that I wish they had like teased out. So we're gonna take another break.

We are continuing to talk about dumpling, which is a lovely and cute film on Netflix outright. Now in streaming. Another part that I wanted to mention about this film is I really enjoyed the performance by actor Mattie Balbo. And I think she's so cute. She plays a character named Millie. And I thought she was a her and Jennifer Aniston, probably so my favorite actors and this movie, and I just thought she did a great job and really exuded that character, and she sort of bubbly and fun and smiley, and I thought you did a really good job on that. I did think it was cute win. There's there's a part where the main girls go to a bar to go see Dolly Parton show, but little do they know it's not a daily part and show. It's Dolly Parton night, basically at this bar, but little do they know that it is a drag show, and they're all these drag. To come out and perform as Dolly Parton, which I also thought it was great. That really was surprised free. When it happened some of it because I was like there in Texas, and I don't it doesn't look like Austin. There's a drag bar out here performing Bali Dolly Parton like every Saturday night. So that's a prize me a little bit. But it was a good surprise. And glad they put it in. And I really thought that it was cute and just sort of the this relationship forms between some of the drag queens and performers and these girls are going into a beauty pageant, and it's really cute. You get to see them sort of like grow. And you get to see these drag queens helped the girls with their dresses and with their pageant walks, and they do really good job. I will say this is a cute film. I think it's fun to watch. But I would like to add a few of my criticisms to this. I had mentioned earlier that I wish the film had maybe dealt more into like dumpling like the things that she's thinking about and a little bit more into like her head about feel like there could be a lot of complicated relationships here. Like complicated relationships where you have like the Jennifer Aniston, characterize her mom with dumpling. And I just wanted a little bit more insight into that. Really? Also, I there was some parts of the acting that I felt were awkward some of that could have been because it felt like there could be more details to fill into the stories, and like, maybe they cut scenes or something or there was just so much the actors were trying to convey that it became difficult because also some of these actors the actresses who play the some of the girls in the Paget, they're very young. So I'm like, well, maybe like it was just like not translated well via the acting. I don't know. But I just felt like there were few awkward moments. When I didn't quite get what they were going form. I saw Jennifer Anson was great, but some of the other characters and their interactions with her confused me a little bit. Overall. I would say if you're looking for a doorbell story. You know, someone that's appropriate for young girls, and sort of feeling like it doesn't matter. What you look like you're still beautiful. I I really think this can be an encouraging story. Also, there's one more point that I wanted to bring up, and it's something that both the films I on and dumpling made me think of and this is a little bit more personal. But it really to me. Sometimes I always feel like you should be able to have your such great self-confidence, and to be really strong and just be, you know, the absolute best that you can be when situations difficult like when you're in an underdog situation that you should be able to be super self-confident and just like glowing no matter what. And that's what really really strength is. But watching this film's in Siahaan. Scientists great wrestling and dumpling dumpling really comes out in this beauty pageants. She really shines. And does a really good job and impresses her mom? And it really made me think about like just. Because somewhat like success and doing well does not cheap in self confidence. That may result from the success. Sometimes I feel like just because you're if you're self confident, but you're doing really, well, then your self confidence is kind of fake it's shallow. And that if you're in a bad life situation, you're always the dog, but you're also super confident that is better and stronger, self confidence. And while I think that is very strong self-confidence watching these films made me think about the fact that success doesn't cheapen yourself confidence that may result from your success. So I hope that makes sense that's something that I thought about after these films, and I don't know I felt like helped me and encourage me like, you know, no matter where I am in life. It's good health confidence. But shouldn't beat myself up for being super confident when things going well, and maybe struggling when things aren't because you know, being self confident with things going, well is still also self. Confidence and it still also strength. So that's what I thought about. And I hope that you all go out and watch dumpling and watches on. I think dumplings cute, but I think everyone should watch. I on it is truly inspiring. You might get choked up so grab some tissues. I would highly suggest it. So thank you all so much for listening, and I hope you tune into the next movies episode.

The Shark

"Welcome to journey inside. The soul of one of sports media's brightest minds profoundly nuanced Odyssey called stupidity hosted by the incomparable Stugatz. A man. I consider a personal hero. An icon of the industry. I WANNA make no bones about it. There is no Mike Greenberg today without sensational stugatz providing the inspiration to chase my dream and challenge myself to be just half as brilliant as he is. Allow me Mike Greenberg man. Who would probably today doing traffic in Sioux falls without stugatz influence to welcome you to a truly transcendent sonic experience. This is stupidity while demand to another episode of the biggest five guests in the world. Thanks to your bigger than Oprah. Maybe the Rogin Rogan's Atari Abba and say okay grow the show and brought to get off. Cast Um 'cause is the and as Dargin APPS. But the scribe great review of subscribed resubscribe rerate review. You you have eight us. Bigger THAN OPRAH. We got big news to announce this podcast coming up the next few weeks we really actually at at least we have talk radio. And so hopefully that bothersome equity the audience. What I tell you. We have some big announcements to me a couple of the podcast. We have two big announcements the makeup of the podcast but we will get to those issue. Direct says stay. The guy is super excited about what we're doing today. Have you ever spoken to Greg Orbit? Have you ever had any sort of actual Greg Norman? At all now know I've had my my only members of Greg. Norman are watching golf with my father in the mid nineties in Norman blowing big leads. It majors second. That's a great way to break make figures I think it was the runner up at eight majors. He was Robert Gusta four or five. Todd's crazy the epic meltdown. Which it was odd with Greg Norman. He was so beloved three hundred. Thirty one weeks stance. He was the number one golfer in the world. People do not remember that and the disappointing by Norman is. You would think that would translate to like fifteen majors. It translated he over the open championship twice. Never won the US Open. Never WanNa PLOP. Dj. Never won the masters that look up. How many times at Augusta? But he was so enormously popular static bat while losing that. Nassar that you were talking about. It was so gut wrenching. So heartbreaking that it actually helped the mystique and the op you'll harrity grigory route. It was crazy then. We're yeah I I mean not. Only the ninety six masters I think he had a six stroke lead loss by five strobes eighty six in nineteen eighty six. He had the fifty four hole. Lead at all four majors. The only one was the open championship. Yeah that's crazy. I know I mean it. Just so Clo- was so good. He was just. I mean number one Golfer. The world for three hundred thirty one weeks think about that. I am looking right now. Is running out so he was. He won the over championship. As we mentioned you. Us Open Eighty four eighty five other out. He Egypt Eighty six eighty or ninety three runner out and then yes eventually. Right Masters Eighty six eighty seven and ninety six. Eighty six eighty seven heartbreaking. But I'm telling you the fans were logging because the meltdowns were so epic you could see yourself doing some of the things as Golfer. Relatable static The best golfers in the world. Have these meltdowns you talk Brady. Tom Brady is the best quarterback we've ever seen play football at Tom. Brady could. Under GOP is the tended to the I eat all the matches best weekend because golf will do that to you will humble you in a way that no other work at out. I gotTa say I'm almost disappointed in you. I don't know how long we've been talking. But you haven't even referred to Greg Norman as the shark yet and I feel like I don't even know who you are. That's on me as a tire. That's who I am. A little recorded podcasts at unhealthy radio and I applied. You're right all right. I be absorbed short athletes that are nicknamed animals. I I mean can I go with. Tiger is that too. Easy will eldridge So I guess you can I guess so? What are we doing the animals or dutifully games? Ooh I think we can make combined. Let's connote because then if a nickname did still works so canot so actually If animals so now I have to think about because nickname animals is pretty George. The animal steele take the game right there. We do dictate true true. I mean for if you WANNA stay golf. We got the Golden Bear on the golden bears. Fantastic to ask trying to think Yet to go. The that's addicted doesn't connote So trying to fix it. So who can? Notes connotes an animal Oh I got it out. The Nick did Audra Scout Garage. The ARACA The but that's a nickname the began at that could note. I think they both count. I think when you say Andrea Scholar Aga I think big cat connoting an animal. No look at Hannibal would be like some guys. Last name was tale was was was like Dominique Foxworth. There you go there you go okay Jimmy box right. You Know Sport John. God's God you did it. Yes who knew there were so many. Fox's at yes the name the the admiral these to be somewhere within the name or animal port. It's air within the name. Yes yes so like mad mad dog. Russo doesn't count is what you're telling me. Christopher Mad Dog Russo absolutely does not counting nickname on this version of the game when it started with the shark. Sharks is nicknamed so I asked. You you nicknames or People's for to connote an animal and those are two very different things you ever note not picnic so I don't know I don't know what I think. They're all in the same umbrella. I think when I say Greg Norman you think Shark so Greg Norman. Connotes an animal okay awesome? What do you do with Mardy Fish? That's very good. What do you do there as an animal but I guess okay all right there. It does get out of animal a lot. I think every other I got one. I'm ready if you want me to. Just keep emptying the chamber can or if you WANNA go every other. We can do that to whatever you WANNA do. Good I got I N Eagle. Oh Wow that's great. That is great. I have a super That's very good. Covered the bird category by that. That's true so if I came back with with Karl Anthony towns. That's not counting because we already Galarraga. Or is that going to qualify? What cat yeah Got Shelter it's like a double can't catfish dominated. Whatever gave it is that we're black right now. Know what about Jake? The snake plummer. What about the Snake Roberts? What about SNAK BLISS KIT? What about Kenny? Stabler man isn't any big ones. I feel like we're missing. Some big ones jobs alley. It's fighter Dennis somewhere game. Were blaming the tire tired. Because it's funny getting today would happen. Oh my God I up double this game not by a long shot was incorrect al. I thought we reached a natural conclusion. Now I gotta keep thinking man. Unless they're cert saints animals. Then that's a good idea to Will you count Ryne Sandberg Rhino. Yes okay fit. That's let's go back. That is connoting an animal. Okay you think. It connotes animal. It's as big name. It just could not or by two separate gates earned. It's five it's okay because we're circles e because we've been talking for fifteen consecutive weeks and they're going to be wrong with what it is we're doing so now. I just blow up so tired anyone dog dog a tiger fish. There we've covered those Well Turtles Turtle. That's Joe Woth Carolina. Rainy will look billy's of course Wolf Blitzer. I think of course like ready. Wolf is some sort of common knowledge than I promise you. Ninety percent of our audiences could go back to look up already. We'll keep it a gentleman a pretty good run a good teacher. He played for a lot of teams. I think yeah. You're look that up there on rainy wall. Oh yeah things. Some giant panda Pablo Sandoval.

Stu Gods if you WANNA go one syllable you can call them statue low. Greg you good Buddy Area S. I mean. He's probably GONNA sharks. Have you got an animal name? You can call him. He's kind of a snake. Well that'd be good another personality you'll learn real quick word. He's got unbelievable. Be SHAVED FOR SHARK. A dead sorry could get on his name. Cole I walking around Got a few things. I'm trying to multitask here this morning. Well good 'cause I'd like to start right there. I love the fact that you wanted to call via phone and not soon because I was told that you like to walk around in the morning. So what does Greg were diligence nine? Am What are you doing that? I've been up since Five twenty and just getting the day organized getting finishing of building. This House are getting the subcontractors organized. I'm doing emails about ready to Meet with subcontractors soon as we get this Coal and then go do work on my property and then you know. God given under the day you've had so much it says Off The golf course in business and I've read so many articles about getting ahead of the day doing so by waking up as early as you wake up getting all that stuff dot is one of the keys to being a successful businessman. Would you agree with that? Yeah look look I mean I have probably. My brain goes into hyper drive at times when it starts. You've got to kind of slow it down and to slow it down. I just compartmentalizing. Just if it takes me two minutes to do a task Do that and then check the box mentally and move onto the next and don't worry about it. I've actually put it aside and completed that task and then go onto the next the next the next it's the is the laborious things that You have to do dealing with subcontractors and timelines schedules and you know so know that situation sometimes you have to really be on it and it takes more than one meeting to get to a conclusion. Greg. Do you ever just sit down like it. Sounds like most after guy ever like. When are you sitting and relaxing? And what are you doing in that moment? Well actually enjoy Sunday mornings with my wife in the pool. House is the Sun. Comes up drinking coffee just reading our IPADS and see what the news is. I don't watch a whole lot of TV. At the end of the day My Wife and Eye Kiki. We a downloaded on there. 'cause she's doing the interior design and and we're actually the G. Season the construction of the house. And so we just you know compare or not Monday and spend an hour doing that. And then Eat dinner and boom crash got to do it all over again. Exactly right right the army. I mean. Listen I've spoken to you. Somebody's lives over the year. It'd be elaborates are odd. But are the the army slogan. Is We do more for the most people all day and I would say the great northern has the same slogan. I mean you. Did you do more for nine af than most people do it in a tire day credible? Well yeah look I think. Avoid being that way. I'm of a dual doing a lot of ways. You Know I. I like to get my hands dirty and I like to be able to say that. I'm not asking anybody to do something that I cannot do And I you know just give you kind of examples you know out of my ranch in Colorado. I mean I run my own heavy equipment like D. Six bulldozers like You know Six Seventy Moda graders like all that stuff because you know. It's just something that I like to do. And and even here around the property. I'll run by irradiation trenches and we'll run the front end loaders and we'll move transplant trees and stuff like that. Which you know. I love doing this because it's all you know kind of what we do. Golf course design. But you know. I don't actually transplant trees and golf courses. I I say hey. That trees should be moved from there today. Because we like the least stubbins approach and try and keep by the nature of the best. She can possibly be on every golf course. We built what you've done with all that Greg GonNa Launch Seborga on. I mean if you wanted to come with us on piety. What'd you make of the match over the weekend? Did you joy I thought was fantastic? I'm wondering what you thought. Yeah look I watched a little bit towards the end. I was Watching the first shot but I picked it up around the fourteenth or fifteenth hole. I actually thought it was good television. Because I think from From the Confinement of people being cooped up and not seeing live sport of any capacity anywhere around the world people were ready to blow. The LID is something didn't happen pretty quickly like opening up the country or opening up businesses or seeing sport. So you know. Go was always perplexed guys right from the outset. Why go would be be a part of the list where you couldn't get out there and play it because people go you know pox? In general people could go walk their dogs down the street. I just never could comprehend why golf courses would be closed down. I understand and get the clubhouses. I understand and get shutting down F. and B. But the grow the grass doesn't know this code nineteen out there the you gotta be maintained thaddeus awarded. And there's got to be going so why not give access to go fas who want to carry they go fag or take just one person in the Gulf Kat? They become responsible for cleaning down that Gulf Cod. And let him get out there in the natural environment and just you know the sun and fresh air is good for people instead of being cooked up in a in a full room to household apartment. Or what have you Iran? And I've always you know like I said perplexed about that but oh so glad to see back to the match or so. Glad to see it happen and you know we all know. Tom Brady loves golf. And we all know Peyton. Manning loves goals and So to get a combination of those guys out there on national. Tv away from you know having a piece of leather in the hand fling. It's fifty yards downfield touchdown. It was good to see you know trying to work a little tiny piece of white rubber around Synthetic rubber round to play golf. And I think people really related that and and I thought the interaction from what I saw was really really good so And you know just see it happening on a goal course at Code design with but Pete Dye many years ago It was it was very rewarding. A lot of ways Greg. I think what was faster than a matter for a Lotta people? I think stands at proudly felt the same way my producer is. You saw Tom. Brady Navy the greatest athlete. We've ever seen him. Michael Jordan. Certainly great quarterback we ever seen. But we've all felt with Tom. Fouts especially only in that big shot other birdies from the fairway about one hundred thirty yards ad is the game was moving so fast. Everything was movie so. That's you know Tom Brady in. Private moments has fired off rate rats but in that moment playing with those guys on national. Tv You can see. The game was moving so fast he couldn't get his swing right. Greg you've been there we've Bob in there but it. It really relate to Tom. Brady and I think the audience is never related to pretty and it's all because the back breezy game. Well that's very true. Very observant of you. You know. It's like taking somebody out of their environment. That they're extremely comfortable and confident in he likes slinging bowl and reading plays whether slam play or something deep downfield or whatever you know where with. Tom Actually instinctively knows what to do. And when you take a great athlete who they competitor at the highest level on putting me in a competitive level with six million people are GonNa be watching you on TV. Yeah people watching on Sunday millions and millions of people but he controls that space and it goes to show You know. Golf is a very very humbling sport and Even though you think you'd go to the game the game is way better than you from a mentality standpoint and it really tasks you and a lot of ways and especially when you're playing with somebody like tiger and Phil right because there's always Chadha going on in the background with gophers ride. There's so much needle which is great to see. It's always been that way since I've been in the game of go for forty years this little back chat. That goes on the golf course to be able to see that. Feel that so. Tom And I've always said this year when we play the game at the highest level in the two guys on a Sunday afternoon and the laws group the five hour around a four and a half brown around seems like it goes by four or five minutes. So when you to you have to really be able to slow everything down to understand okay. Am I moving too fast? It was my swing doing this. Am I doing this? Because he gets swamped with this plethora of information whether positive or negative. And you don't just enjoy the moment of just saying relax. I'm going to enjoy it. I'm GonNa have a good time and You know I've read that about Tom. But you know at the end of the day. He got his act together and You know he stepped up to the plate and he performed really well. I sold the shoddy hold on the seventh hole that At the metal is very very impressive and from there you know. Even his reaction was very controlled. It wasn't like jumping up and down and doing high fives with everybody. Was they went allowed to do anyway. Elbow FIS or whatever you WANNA call it but Great to see I just absolutely enjoyed the last three or four five holes that I watched. I'm going to blow on my producers stands. It's mind right here because I don't think he knows this side of Greg Organ. I know it very well and Greg your shortage. I appreciate the time so I would ask you this. A couple of film blank's Work Association and get the hell out of here because you got a loss it at. I know that. But you've done some really cool act crazy stuff in your life grind cool. I'd Grazie stop and so I'm wandering the medal stand of the coolest. Things like stripping would sharp skydiving all this stuff that I think by producers dancing. Because I don't wear that you do on a regular basis rod silver and gold medal stand of craziest things. Greg Norman has tried is life. Ooh Okay First of all a bronze medal of going out with the US Navy in an F. Eighteen. With the admiral of the Pacific Fleet out of Miramonte and doing a couple of traps on the USS Cal. Vincent many years ago We did some really impressive aerial maneuvers And I'm a big You know turning top of guy. I wanted to be a fight apolo. You know when I was a kid growing up from somebody to be on the experience that through the the graciousness of the US Navy and the military to allow me to go experience. That was just a memory of a lifetime So you know even today Really good friends with major Dan Rooney flow of the Blue Angels Stuff like that. It's really turns my on the back of my neck and stand it on end so that would be The the bronze the silver medal Let me think probably's belonging in the Colorado rockies with professional deep inside the the mountains eh to come to a massive underground river system that I'd never experienced an interesting where you had to take your backpack off and push it through and read out. You put yourself through a very skinny slit. Thank God I had a professional with me. We held down certain. Sections and climb. Backups Oh and then we got to this river system and it was really really cold inside the mountain We'll went obviously from plenty. Uh sells through the the the ROC on the floor It was just a massive river system. You straddled maybe about a four foot slit in the on the in the in the mountain and you could hear the river raging on the days that would be number two and the gold medal. I would say it's probably going to be a tie And it's supposed both do scuba diving and one was in the Bahamas where I actually Jacques. Cousteau was trying to find the end of this cave system in. I believe it was in the exam so I went to do it. And it was a very very technical dive. There was a deep dive Again went with the professional and again we came into cave system and we stepped ourselves down. It was pitch Black Pitch Black So it was really exhilarating. You had to really become because it's very claustrophobic Put that equal to the second one. I did was diving in a truck lagoon.

When the union files emotion to quash that subpoena as well. The government makes a deal. They'll agree to let the matter resolve in the courts as long as the samples are preserved.

From one, I'm Lindsey, Graham, and this is America skin. This is the final episode of our five part series on a scandal that rocked the sports world to the core. This is episode five, winners and losers in our previous episode, federal agent, Jeff Novitsky, and the US anti-doping agency discovered they're both investigating Balch, oh, a company that's been supplying elite athletes with illegal performance, enhancing drugs. The feds convened a grand jury and a parade of top athletes get confidential testimony, some admitted to using banned substances, but the most famous witness Barry Bonds insisted he'd never knowingly used steroids. Initially, the feds refused to share the testimony with US ADA, but after a protracted battle, they got the testimony and have been banning Olympic athletes from future games and stripping them of pass metals. It's a spring of two thousand four and I r s special agent, Jeff Novitsky is on a roll. It took a little maneuvering, but he finally got the samples and test results. He was after that takes care of baseball players. Now, he's going after Olympic gold medalist, Marion Jones. He certain she used performance enhancing drugs to become the fastest woman in the world. The US anti-doping agency has her under a microscope as well. Both are ex husband and her current boyfriend are juicers, and her coach has been identified as a steroid supplier per denials, getting harder to believe. But Marion Jones didn't get to be the fastest woman, the world being shrinking violet, she knows she's under scrutiny. So she brings in the big guns. She gets the same crisis PR company. Bill Clinton used during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and then she hires a team of high powered lawyers. I, she threatens to sue the US anti-doping agency. If they tried to stop her from competing in the two thousand four Nathen. Olympics then on may twenty fourth, she and her lawyers find to Colorado Springs for a tense three hour meeting at USA headquarters. She denounces US Asia as a kangaroo court and employs the Senate to hold hearings on whether she should be allowed to participate in the upcoming Olympics. A few days later she claims she's passed, private lie detector tests, Terry Madden USA. Is in a tough spot. He worries that with Amazon case against her Jones and her team of lawyers were crush them. But if she's allowed to compete in the Olympics and wins, it will look like the agency failed to do their job Jones. Full court, press works, Madden and USA. Let her compete. For Novitsky. It's a setback, but a month later, he gets good news, tiny, Tim Montgomery, the world's fastest man and Marion Jones. Current boyfriend is stopped short. When the San Francisco Chronicle publishes excerpts from his secret grand jury testimony admitting that he used as he put it enough drugs to get me banned from the Olympics for life. Naturally, the story generates tremendous interest, especially from the US attorney's office. They promise the athletes that their grand jury testimony would be secret. They wanna know where the chronicle reporters are getting the transcripts, they demand that all materials related to grand jury testimony be returned reporters, refuse. Jones. Meanwhile, continues to try to stay above the fray. She's done it before when her ex-husband CJ hunter, failed a drug test before the two thousand Olympics. She professed to be shocked by the news and unaware. He was juicy on July eighth, two thousand four. She releases a glossy autobiography called life in the fast lane in it. You insist, she's never used performance enhancing drugs, and she details the pain and heartbreak of discovering her ex-husband headlight to her about his drug use. The book proves to be the break. Novitsky is looking for a few days later. He's in North Carolina in the living room of her ex CJ hunter. Would you like some more sweet tea agent of isky? Sure, CJ. But I seem you didn't invite me here for a tea party? No, I find it you here to talk about Mary. When we got divorced, we both signed an NDA said we wouldn't say anything negative about each other in public. Okay. Have you read her book? She says, I'm a liar and a cheater. Yeah, I've read it. She's the one who's lying saying. She never used any drugs. I injected her with steroids and she tries to act all pure and innocent and makes me out to be a monster hundred has Novitsky glossy book with parochially pose Marion Jones on the cover. Read this right here. Second paragraph bothered me that CJ never apologized for causing me extra pressure at the Olympic what a load of. I apologize on national television for crisis. Yeah, that's gotta stink. Well, I'm about to sting bag. Jeff, Novitsky leaves North Carolina with a detailed first hand account of Marian Jones. Doping hunter tells him what drugs she used where and how she got them. And when she took them a few weeks later Jones competes in the Olympic trials, but the stress of defending herself has taken hold. She failed to qualify the hundred meters, which is her best event. The only venue qualifies for is the long jump. When the games begin in August Jones comes in fifth and along and botches baton hand off in a relay race between her poor performances, all bad cress. Her career will soon. While agent Davinci continues to pursue the Balch of case through the legal system, the leaks keep coming. The cases tried in the court of public opinion. The San Francisco Chronicle breaks the story of CJ hundred accusations about Marion Jones. They follow that with a transcript of a secret recording of Greg Anderson where he admits giving steroids to bury bonds in early December. They publish excerpts from Jason geom-, grand jury testimony detailing. His use of human growth hormone Conte's. Lawyers have already claimed his right to a fair trials being compromised by misconduct, improper searchers, and what they insist is a delivered series of government leaks. Now with even more leaks in might appear there, right? But Conti has kneecapped his own defense team over his lawyer strenuous objections. He's done an interview on twenty twenty. He named eleven athletes. He sold drugs to and declared that all sports at the elite level is a fraud. The back, oh, prosecutors are also concerned about the leaks. The grand jury proceedings were supposed to be secret. The chronicle reporters and consultants on this series. Mark fana-, Rwanda. And Lance Williams has steadfastly refused to reveal their source. Now, a judge instructs, the Justice department to track down the leaker and take appropriate action. So who is the leaker? The prosecutor suspect you could be Conti by showing that the players are guilty. He could take some of the heat off himself on January fifth, two thousand five. The f. b. i. raids, Connie's home, they come up with nothing. Other suggest is Jeff Novitsky after all, he's hell bent on bringing down the players by any means possible. He may even have tipped off the press during the original rate on Balbo as there was a news chopper overhead as soon as the raid began. But no one has been able to pin that on skis. All the while. The pressure on major league baseball is building management has recently announced a new testing policy, but has been roundly criticized as weak, Senator McCain and President Bush both vow than if the owners don't take concrete steps to clean up the league's act. The government will do it for them. And in February two thousand five and insider comes forward with a firsthand account Jose Consejo releases a tell all memoir entitled, juiced, wild times, rampant Royds smash hits and how baseball got big in it. He describes injecting steroids with Mark McGuire, but McGuire isn't the only one he mentions. In fact, he writes, the challenge is not defined a top layer who has used Royds the challenge to find a top player who hasn't. It's possible that Barry Bonds might have felt vindicated to finally see his home run nemesis McGuire exposed as user, but he's got problems of his own a March seventeenth, an unusual witness testified before the grand jury. She's not an athlete and she has nothing to do with Balch. Oh, what she is his Barry Bonds, former mistress and bonds, and his lawyers are very, very nervous about her testimony. Kimberly bell that Barry Bonds in nineteen ninety four. When a friend took her to a giants game, her friend knew some of the players. And as soon as bond saw bell, he declared she's going to be. Mine fell was a graphic designer, twenty four, very pretty with clear olive skin and little interest in baseball. But bonds pursued her. He made sure she was invited to a fourth of July barbecue. He chatted her up an offer to take her for a ride in his new Porsche, instead of once around the block, he blasted down the freeway at one hundred miles per hour. Their affair took off at high speed as well, but bonds to keep it on the town, though he was in the midst of a bitter divorce and didn't want his wife's lawyers to have anything to use against him. Still bell traveled with him to games and they came together after his divorce with finalize bonds insisted they had the perfect relationship wasn't so sure, especially on a day. Nine hundred ninety seven when bonds proposed marriage. To someone else bonds claim that nothing will change between them. Reminding balance sheet always said she likes her independence. He claimed he needed to be married or as actually get sole custody of their kids. They could still keep their affair like nothing change. But things did change in very disturbing ways. His head got larger his back, broke out, an acne, his temper flare. He became jealous and controlling she claims. He asked her to move to resign a- said he by her house, she quit her job and moved. But bonds rarely came through with the mortgage payments he promised and he became more controlling and menacing a few times he left death threats on her answering machine. She kept the tapes. Finally, in may two thousand three after she says, he put his hand around her throat and threatened to kill her. Kimberly. Bell had enough. Shortly after the balcony, rain Bond's lawyers offer to buy her silence for twenty thousand dollars. She turns him down. It's not enough for what she's been through a few months later when she hears that a grand jury has been convened. She is ready and willing to talk. Unfortunately, no one wants to listen. She emailed Senator McCain. Whenever gets a reply. Finally, she contacts Geraldo Rivera whose producers are very interested in what she has to say and welcome her onto his show. In addition to her litany of complaints about bonds abuse, an empty promises. She also drops upon. She says he was using steroids back in northern California, Asian, Jeff Novitsky is watching when the show airs a few days later, he shows the Bell's house. Dumpster, diving and scorned access. Sometimes the Bisky feels like he's working for a supermarket tabloid instead of the IRS, but he'll take his brakes wherever he gets them. This one's big, Kimberly bell is going to help Jefta Vicky. Bring down the mighty berry box. American scandal is sponsored by Brooklyn. One idiom is almost always appropriate. When discussing scandal you've made your bed now lying it. It's an old sentiment coming from a fifteenth century French phrase as one makes one's bed. So one finds it, you can almost always improve your life by improving how you make your bed. These days. I make my bed with Brooklyn. I've got their Lux core sheet set in solid smoke, which have a cool crisp yet silky feel. These are luxury hotel sheets, but they're priced affordably because Brooklyn and got rid of the middleman and markups and keeps their relationship with their customers as personal as possible.

These really are the best sheets ever. March seventeenth. Two thousand five is a chilly day in San Francisco, but Barry Bonds is about to get roasted. It's the day Kimberly. Bell goes before the balcony grinned Jerry the jury's focus and their questions are quite different from what they've asked the witnesses. So far they're looking for evidence that bonds committed perjury when he said he never used performance enhancing drugs. So they're interested in anything bell knows about his use of steroids cluding any physical evidence she might have observed as worth things get weird. I question her about the size of bonds head. She confirms it did seem like his head had grown, which is a sign of human growth hormone abuse. Then they ask about a lower part of his in that another sign of steroid use is shrinking testicles. One of the jurors brings up an interview bonds was quoted as saying, I can tell you, my testicles are the same size. They haven't strong. They're the same of work. Just the same as they always have. This bell. Thanks to differ. To add to the insult three days later, the San Francisco Chronicle strikes. Again, they run a story about bell with details of her testimony. The fact that bonds only offered twenty thousand dollars to buy her silence is especially galling fans. Bonds is being paid seventeen million dollars per year each and every day he earns twenty thousand dollars by noon. Things are not looking good for Barry Bonds and they're looking even more grim for Balch. Oh, founder, Victor, Conte again. And again, he has been identified as the supplier of performance enhancing drugs to elite athletes, politicians fans, and the owners are all looking for a scapegoat and Conti fits the Bill. Finally, in July of two thousand five, the US attorney's office announces, they've reached a plea Draymond spend almost two years since the grand jury was convened to investigate the use of performance, enhancing drugs in sports, given the mountain of evidence. The plea agreement is not what anyone expected forty of the forty two counts will be dropped. Conti will serve just four months in a minimum security prison bonds trainer, Greg Anderson who had refused to testify against any of his clients will serve three months. Jim Valenti Dhaka's vice president and steroid dealer. Remmy core chimney will not serve any time. Most. Surprisingly, none of them will be required to testify against each other, their suppliers or their clients. A jubilant Conti refers to his sentence as the risk slap heard round the world, sports fans across America. Wanna know what the hell happened. Some people speculate that as a former major league baseball team owner, President Bush wanted to give baseball a break, but there may have been problems with Novitsky case despite his meticulous nature. He's accused of making mistakes. Conti insists he was never read his rights when they raided his office and Iran white. The undercover agent has accused of its give being biased and overstepping his bounds. Even if they throw the book at Conti, it's a light, read the penalties for steroid dealing far less stringent than for drugs like crack cocaine. The most they could hope for is a sentence of one year. If nothing else, though Vicky has shown the world how pervasive doping is in sports and dozens of athletes have been sanctioned had metals or records revote. Barry Bonds is not among them that pisses Jeff ski off. He spent all those nights rooting through the balcony Dunster. He found evidence directly connecting bonds tobacco. Victor Conte, even brag the bonds was one of his clients, but bonds is still playing for the giants on track to break Hank, Aaron's homerun record. The giants position is that bond has never failed drug tests, and he's being unfairly dogged by rumors and innuendo besides bonds is drawing crowds, even if they taught him with chance. The game's not over from the bits. He knows bonds lied in his grand jury testimony, Kimberly, bell. And the other players have confirmed, eve Ouston nail bonds for perjury. He also goes after rogue chemist. Patrick Arnold who supplies Connie with designer steroids on September twenty ninth. The Fed's rate is land by November of two thousand five. The viscous much to be thankful for at the beginning of the month. Patrick Arnold is indicted on steroid conspiracy charges on the fifteenth, bowing to congressional pressure baseball revamps their drug testing posse on the thirtieth Conti and Greg Anderson both had to prison. And as Christmas approaches, Tim Montgomery gets a lump of coal stocking. He's banned from competition for two years and all of his records after March thirty. First, two thousand one or expunged. He's gone from the fastest main on the planet to the most disgrace. In the world. A few months later in March of two thousand six, Mark fana-, Rwanda, and Lance Williams the to chronicle reporters who've delivered scoop after scoop publish game of shadows, a highly detailed account of the Balch ace full of explosive accusations, documenting steroid use by Barry Bonds to Montgomery, Marian Jones and host of other elite athletes. The book makes Conti famous just as he's about to get out of jail. Finally, he's a household name, not the way he matching Conti still believe in positive thinking for Coty, the game's not over. When the two thousand six baseball season begins, Barry Bonds needs just seven home runs to beat babe, Ruth's record that would put him in second place behind Hank, Aaron. The fans are not in his corner though at the giants away games. Taunting bonds is the new sport. They chant steroids and cheater when he steps up to the plate. One fan even dresses up as a giant syringe. The giants tried to pretend it's business as usual, but clearly it is not bonds assault on the record should be a monumentally promoted event. Instead it's almost an embarrassment. The bond is down. He's forty one and playing with a knee injury, but he's as determined as ever. Jeff Novitsky is determined to he'd love to bring bonds down before he breaks the record. The feds continued to call witnesses and their perjury inquiry, including bonds, personal physician and the giants team trainer. They also subpoena Greg Anderson who is out of prison and serving house arrest. Anderson's response is a resounding middle finger. He would be easy for him to testify before the grand jury sell out Barry Bonds and walked away. But he refuses and return suggest charged with contempt of court. Meanwhile, the feds have finally gotten serious about all those athletes with admitted to the grand jury that they used illegal drugs. They're going after the journalist who reported on the league testimony on may six, the Justice department issue, subpoenas to fair new oughta Williams, and the chronicle. The feds want the reporters to betray their confidential sources. It sets off alarm bells about freedom of. The press the debate and the legal wrangling will continue for months. On July twentieth the grand jury expires, and Greg Anderson is released from prison for a minute. The US attorney immediately passes the bonds perjury case onto a new grand jury. Greg Anderson federal agents. Can we talk for a minute gone when you want now take a guess. You gotta be kidding me. You wanna go home, right? Agree to testify against Barry Bonds. Greg Anderson has been here before and he knows what's at stake. If you rats bonds, he can go back to life as normal. The woman, he loves his twelve year old son and his life. As a trainer. The decision should be a no brainer where you want to your house or the big Anderson may not have the money or fame the bonds, but he does have a moral coat. If Greg Anderson gives his word he sticks by you guys are Thac. Bonds was his client. He's not giving him. Anderson goes back to jail again. And it looks like Anderson might have some company in September of two thousand six, a judge rules that if the chronicle reporters don't reveal their sources, they'll be sentenced to eighteen months in prison, journalists from around the country rally to support them house speaker, Nancy, Pelosi, and other politicians from both sides of the aisle urge the attorney general to drop the charges. But he refuses the reporters also refuse to give up their source. Now they have to face the wrenching task of explaining to their children, why the decision to keep their word, we'll send them to jail the reaction from fans strangely mixed. Some law, the reporters for bringing out the truth about how prevalent doping is in sports, but others, especially giants fans are hostile and even threatening. November first, two thousand six day that proves that. No good deed goes unpunished. Trevor Graham, the track, oh, who sent the syringe containing compound ex US ADA is indicted for lying to federal agents. The truth is Graham sent that syringe to get revenge on Victor Conte. So it wasn't exactly good deed, but it did provide a crucial break in the Balch ace. He thought that would earn him some goodwill from the prosecutor's. But no such luck he's been accused of lying to investigators about his relationship with a Mexican drug supplier, and that's apply has agreed to testify against him on Valentine's Day in two thousand seven, another bombshell is dropped. The subpoenas for the reporters are withdrawn informant has agreed to come forward and dentistry himself. And the informant is someone nobody ever suspected a former rodeo cowboy turn lawyer. The man who reluctantly took. Balch, oh case, even though he thought Victor Conte was a little bit nuts. The source is defense attorney, Choi element. It's puzzling behavior for a lawyer leaking. The testimony didn't help the case. Perhaps it wasn't the attorney in element who did it. Maybe it was the Campbell who believe in fair-play personal responsibility living by moral coat. When he says to the press, is this you read the indictment and every one of the players names scrub down to say, you're cleaning baseball on one hand and give them a pass, white, their name from the indictment. On the other hand, I strongly believe that that was hypocrisy. Ellerman is disbarred and sentenced to thirty months in prison in a worldwide doping scandal involving scores of athletes and tens of millions of dollars. The harshest punishment went to a man who followed his conscience. For Nikki, it's bittersweet. He's a law enforcement officer. The law is the law, but without Ellerman leaking the transcripts, the world wouldn't know the extent to which sports is journey. Who knows, Kimberly bell would have come forward with damning testimony about bonds of the case, hadn't blown up in the media, and congress may not have been so eager to take action either cases over yet, despite all the evidence against him, very bonds hasn't been charged with anything. He still playing baseball and on track to become the home run. King Jeff DeBakey is still determined knock him off. American scandal is sponsored by ancestry.

On August seventh, two thousand seven more than forty thousand giants fans packed AT and t. park berry bonds has hit seven hundred fifty, five home runs tonight. He could break Hank Aaron's all-time homerun record. It's one of the most hallowed records and sports player needs. Average thirty home runs a season for twenty five straight seasons in the fifth inning, Mike Bassett of the Washington nationals throws a fastball to crack back histories. Bassett's three. Again. Goes racing. Sitting at seventy San Francisco, California. Says it more than any major league history baseball. Bonds has hit his seven hundred fifty six home run breaking Hank, Aaron's record. There are streamers skyrockets and screaming fans, but not everyone is happy. Most of his teammates stay in the dugout rather than race onto the field. Congratulate the media immediately refers to it as a tainted record on September fifth bonds hit his seven hundred sixty second home run. It will be his last one. He plays his final game on September twenty six, two thousand seven. He's broken all the records. Now he's fighting to keep the so. But the feds are formidable adversary on November fifteenth, grand jury returns an indictment against bonds. He's charged with four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of Justice for lying about his steroid use in two thousand three. The White House calls it a sad day in baseball. The only good news is that bonds former trainer. Greg Anderson is finally released from prison altogether. He spent a year behind bars. In December bonds, pleads not guilty, and the battle of the lawyers begins bonds can afford the best, but the fence have plenty of heavy artillery to Bond's lawyers, file a motion to dismiss the charges. The fence hit back with fifteen, more counts of lying and obstructing Justice may two thousand eight marked. The start of Trevor grams perjury trial, and a lot of athletes are very nervous. Conti still seizing any opportunity to get his name. The papers declares, I think the trial's going to be more explosive and people have -ticipant because so many additional names are going to crop. I think it's going to be devastating for the sport of track and field. Conte's expectations turn out to be overblown, but so do the governments, their star witnesses. A Mexican drug dealer claimed he sold steroids grand- his testimony is contradictory and his handwriting on fed ex packages. The government claims were used to ship drugs to Graham, don't match other samples in the end. The jury convicts. Graham on one charge of lying to investigators and deadlocks on the other to the jury foreman. Found the government's case troubling in an interview with reporters after the trial, he says he found the athletes testifying against Graham unconvincing and was especially goal that the government star witness was an admitted drug dealer. He tells the reporters, the government was bound and determined to make an example of the defendant to achieve their goal. They felt it necessary to deal with true devil. Another juror agrees. We all ask ourselves, why are they going after this man when they haven't admitted drug dealer on the witness stand. It's not the outcome of its key and the feds had hoped for, but they've still got the bonds case to pursue and they go after it with gusto. Perjury is a serious charge that could send bonds to jail for years. What November Bond's lawyers score. When a judge excludes three urine tests as evidence ruling that they can't be tied to bonds without the testimony of Greg Anderson Anderson made it very clear. He's not going to testify Anderson has saved bonds and again in February of two thousand nine, the war of the urine samples rages on on two fronts. I bonds trials delayed when prosecutors challenged the judge's decision to exclude his urine samples seized during the balcony right as evidence. And Vicky is still fighting to keep the urine samples and test records. He sees from comprehensive drug testing in two thousand four. The court still having reached a final decision and it's frustrating the data he sees shows that one hundred four baseball players tested positive for steroids. He's got the evidence what he can't use it, but then there's a leak on February, seventh. So on tips off Sports Illustrated, the one of the one hundred four players is one of the biggest names in baseball. Alex Rodriguez at the end of July, the names of five other players leaked including Sammy Sosa. Some speculate that Novitsky could be the informant, but there's no evidence linking him to the league. Whoever leaker is it's got to be gratifying for Novitsky to see the cheetah's exposed after fighting for almost five years to be able to release their names, but in September, Novitsky loses the final round. The ninth circuit court rules that the seizure comprehensive drug testing was unlawful. The samples are destroyed, major league baseball. Players who haven't been named re the collective cyber leaf. Even so the bid ski doesn't give up. He and the feds continued to throw fastballs curveballs anything else they can at bonds, they file charges, bombs, lawyers, fightback, get the charges dismissed trials, delayed. The battled goes on until finally in February of two thousand eleven feds file of five count indictment. Each count carries a sentence of up to ten years of bonzes convicted. Greg Anderson again, refuses to testify against lawns and goes to jail for a fifth time in the end, bonds is found guilty of just one count of obstruction of Justice. The jury is unable to come to a verdict on the other counts, making false statements and on December sixteenth. Very bonds is sentenced to two years of probation. Two hundred fifty hours of community service and four thousand dollar fine. It's now been eleven years and one hundred thirty four days since the rate on belco there have been three grand juries scores of witnesses, hundreds of hours of testimony and according to some estimates over fifty million dollars spent. And now finally, the balcony saga is over, but neither side can claim victory. The both might try bonds didn't go to prison, but his name has become synonymous with cheating in his records will forever be looked at with suspicion. Nabisco didn't get the convictions he'd hoped for, but he did help expose the shadowy world of sports doping. Cheaters have been named medals records have been revoked and stronger testing. Procedures are finally in place, but sports doping is still going on new undetectable drugs are being developed as our new ways of thwarting tests. Leaving authorities scrambling today. Knits he's in charge of drug testing for the ultimate fighting championships, but he's still controv-. Figure he's been accused of going easy on UFC fighters who failed drug tests, Marion Jones finally admitted to using performance enhancing drugs and in two thousand eleven. She wrote another book called on the right track from Olympic downfall to finding forgiveness and the strength to overcome and succeed. She was stripped of the five medal. She won at the Sydney Olympics and her world records have been revoked, but one man still riding high cruising in his Bentley and hawking his wares as loudly as ever. And that man is of course, Victor Conte. He's working with boxers and says, he's cleaning up the sport. He still marketing EMA claims to be grossing a million dollars a month in sales forty years ago when he was the basis for tower power, one of their hits was called, we came to play, looks like Victor Conte played everyone.

The Sedano Show (HR 2)

"Yeah thanks to stay van Gundy for joining us there. We had a long break because we literally went like twenty six or seven straight minutes of doing content the podcast yeah it was it was like a podcast. It's like a podcast within the podcast which by the way you should subscribe to the podcast this show podcast we can do that on apple podcast subscribe rate and review until your friends to might trudell is here today as our guest costs a meanest here now we were just having a fascinating conversation during the break about the Lakers Youtube very spirited about about the concern I have and staying Gundy has about the Lakers and look all of this is in context. The Lakers team is really awesome okay but if there is a concern Eric concerned like you trudell thought secondary playmaker would be your concern Yes yes. My concern is defense. Stamen Gundy's was defense a mean yours is defense as well yeah. I think it's obvious offense define. Oh yeah that'd be more than fine. They'll be great and I think there is a valid argument to make that you know maybe they don't need to be good defensively. During the year 'cause the offense can carry on many a night when teams aren't game planning very hard for a single game before they have to go fly up to play Golden State or fly out to play Denver whoever <hes> but the defense is troubling for me because when I look up and down that roster I see a lot of dudes who either are bartering on reputation from days of old or destroying our good defenders and <hes> then you factor in the fact fact Lebron chooses and not that I argue with the choice a why he chooses to do this but we have acknowledged. He chooses not to really burn too many calories on the defense right for sure I mean it's and it's not new started like at twenty fourteen yes. That's you remember last summer. We were talking about this gear the L._A.. Market Lebron's great but I'll tell you right now. There's a couple of things you gotTA watch out for. One of them is he doesn't really defend in November December January and February march well. It's strictly directly a mileage thing and and we understand why why we were trying to explain but how many calls did we think so many defer. Here's what people miss this so we do this all the time right. The legs were the four seed need in December Houston was going to catch up. I think they probably would have finished somewhere between four and six somewhere in the middle of the West. They're going to keep rising but if they all stay healthy and defensively what Lebron did and watch every game he would pick his spots in when there was a run to be made or in the fourth quarter then he'd come over for the weeks I block then he'd come over and tag somebody like so he would. He knows how many plays defensively per game basically yes to make to win on a Jew the minimum minimum number. It's a conscious which is smart. It's not he fell asleep but then what usually happens with the brunt is that he starts to ramp that up later in the season and into the playoffs we didn't get to see the ramp up last Ryder right and so so so I think there will be more of the selective defending but my my big difference between this team and say so okay so the Cleveland cavs right when Lebron was there the defense was horrible in the regular season and we said no teams ever been this loan defensive efficiency and gone onto win well that team the the other a guy next thing was Kevin love and now it's Anthony Davis and Dana Green. Let's see those they're better. This is what he's older and this is what he's older and this is GonNa push back last year you're right. He picked his <hes> spots but Lonzo ball when he was healthy a good defender yeah really good Gosh iheart yeah right. They had dudes out there who were good defensively and also as a unit had become better defensively the year before Lebron got there and all your children well Lonzo for sure was that was the defensive plus minus guy this to me again. The Casey has flaws he does compete pretty well defensively in his athletic and he's quick so he and green he in green on the wings with Davidson with Lebron and then again Caruso. I don't think he's GonNa play crunch time. We can debate all that but he's a good defender so they've got their not bad elite by any means they're not bad. I think they have a chance to be like lower lower third in the N._B._A.. And Defense that's how bad I think they can be as an it's not that far fetched about Kentavious Pope who you're right is decent defensive Kentavious colwell pope but there's a difference with teen him being a decent defender as your fifth or six best defender and being independent as your third or fourth past. Let's go live to the television because keys in Bristol this week and he's done N._F._l.. Live talking about this random guys that are there there with him wanted to hear that we're going to be caller. Thomas say the things that he said they also understood that Abe needed his muddy and he's very risque. He's got like three wanted his money for macy's ready new at the end of the day. These guys want to do something different. It's time for us to move forward. Now didn't work out the way they wanted to miss the playoff but they go back in the playoffs this year whenever key talks. I just want to randomly ear. What he's talking about? Kia is in Bristol this week. Assert is very very risque but it's not not that's an L._A.. leuke steadily in L._A.. Yes I mean blue. RIDDICK is trying to compete with him a little bit on the set with an extra button unbuttoned but key is at a different level more key. Give me more key vs not over there anymore talking about this guy that Alpha dog opposite him to lift a coverages. He's GonNa now get the number one devi the number one nipple guy when they moved him inside in the slot. Guys are GonNa Follow Him all right Juju. He's going to see some cover to bracket. He's got to know how to beat those the things but as far as being a man child I'm not worried about that at all. The offense coordinator and a quarterback has to make the decision to getting the foot one put him in the right spot man child Juju Smith Schuster says keyshawn Johnson worried about the mantle <hes> so you guys keep talking about also I mean so last year defensive efficiency radames looking at the regular season so most of the top defensive teams last year in the east part of that is because they play all the bad team the copyright so okay see was fourth and defensive efficiency. I think we can take them off the list. Although Utah Second Russell Westbrook kind of Utah will still be up there. There's no question there are better off defensive team than the Lakers this year number nine was memphis which is impressive considering the personnel but they'll drop number ten denver. I think they will stay there or improve especially with getting grant. WHO's a really good defensive player? I really liked Denver's defense. Golden State was number eleven. That won't be this way not their de Ngelo Russell owing. They lost three best defensive players earn the whole correct so so so there defensively not gonna be quite the same Portland Sixteenth Houston Seventeenth Dallas eighteenth clippers nineteenth clippers go way up once George gets back healthy and Kuwa- but like my point is most of them in the West say I'll be there soon enough. Yeah I mean wow that was terrible. Thank you but so I think that the defenses in the West compared to where like how the Lakers will be able to score in crunch time to me is that's why it's not as big of a concern for me I agree the personnel isn't isn't great or isn't perfect but I think they have enough defenders where the whole like Lebron Eighty screen role can get you a bucket. Whenever you want is going to be the the problem only problem with your all? Everything is the problem is you're comparing. Defenses to defense and defense doesn't play defense defense plays it gets off it so can they guard those offenses is the question not can they defend better than the other defiant. Let's continue that on the other side plus we we may disagree on some of this stuff but there's one thing we can agree on. Is that our Buddy Ryan. Holland's is a crazy person. We'll tell you what he just said today about. There's we'll get to that. We're back in three minutes. Saddana show here on E._S._P._N.. L._A. Trudell here mean here by the. Way We've got some stuff to give away. It's going to be in the six o'clock hour all right. We have the Rams Hawaii flyway so here's what you need to do. In the six o'clock hour probably be Kershaw Brandon when you hear Mason say Aloha Ramle Good Luck and say Mahalo later during the show we'll tell you it's in the six o'clock hour. If you're caller seven at that point you can qualify for the Rams Hawaii Wii fly away and that includes two tickets to the rams cowboys game on August seventeenth round trip airfare four nights of hotel accommodations and a private tour of the Koloa Rum distillery so that's a hell of a trip so so that in the six o'clock hour we're going to qualify somebody so make sure you are listening in the six o'clock hour for that also starting next week we are going to be rams camp and we're also going to be at the Angels Game For O._C.. Week stuff starting <hes> me and Mina Mine and I will be at Rams. Can't we're going to have like a V._I._p.. Section so next week we're GONNA we're going to hook people up and they're going to be part of the Rams Training Camp V._I._P.. Section me and mean are out there hanging now and then L Z and I are throughout the first pitch the angels game and you can qualify to be V._I._P.'s at the angels game that day to bring kids. I want to be able to yeah. I love the fact that you're both doing it so that we can compare. All I take time I don't know I think it'd be side by side but here's Gumby side by side it probably but here's the thing I think l. did do a Detroit. Tigers dead skip work for that right and I I've done one. I've done one remember the the pitch your member. I can't it was okay okay evidently conservative he didn't know but that's the move just toss it man. Oh I disagree. I try to be Roger. Clemens out there you go gas. No I did that once and it almost was disaster no but as long as the only thing that can be disastrous is that you do like an again. I think he's maybe the best sports media person ever like the wilpon thing like you don't WanNa go short. You don't WanNa go twenty dirt but if you go go keitel must lawsuit goes way over the top that still cool so that's what happened to me. That's better go high heat over the heat as the catcher obviously he's awesome because he plays a major league baseball had the reflexes to go above his head but I was like ooh. That could have been really bad the backstop you know what I'm saying. It's like no. I like his theory that if it hits the backstop that's not a bad thing as long as it looked like you. You put gas on the things that look better week end-user growing weekly juice to put it in the love. Let's fifty cent. Remember like we're the great you don't get the grip. That's not gonNA happen though because you've actually played baseball overpowering blank Swaggie A._p.. Dodger stadium went went high heat now. He didn't throw it. He wasn't actually heat his was just high but then he just laughed it off and it was cool anyway because that's him but but George for you and your personality like you are you are not you are a bold aggressive got along. I'm GONNA and you wanted to be els but a little juice on it but not heat not like wind up and what do you have to lose now. No vote in the dirt dirt out in the dirt right. I can get it to the catcher that's yards and and then it settled there is opening up to the audience while we're having our own set of discussions here. Just kinda quickly will go through that eight seven seven seven ten E._S._p._N.. Should I heat at the angels actors very simple he he <music> are no heat and angels game eight seven seven seven ten E._S._p._N.. It sounds like I agree. I I like it. I thought about it more and like you're right. You can float over the catches head Dr. You'll look fine. It's just left Upton right. That's bad down to make sure you're going straight straight down the pike but again eight seven seven seventeen E._s._p._N.. Heat or no heat on the first pitch you don't WanNa hit a ball kid in the head or anything like that. That's the one but even so but just throw hard civil young man yeah so Ryan Holland's Today was on first date and our Buddy Ryan harms our friend our good friends is a friend of ours friend and he was on years. This week likes pineapple on his pizza. He does have a problem with that. I do have a huge problem. I don't have a huge problem explains a lot though I don't have a huge problem with pineapple pizza like it's not my goal is it tastes gross but it's just not just not one of us as long as there's ham on it even then it's still it's just not not as good of a topic has grown to your Jalapeno pineapples mushrooms together. Trust me right if you're doing just pineapples and much on Ireland do pineapple listeners ham attached to it like a true Hawaiian style pizza. I'm GonNa have doubts about all you guys soon. Don't screw it up. Here's a Ryan you know while you're on you can just go pineapple pizza or no pineapple pizza too so right islands today where okay so this is the one that Mike found he was talking about. He was arguing Max about Rondo versus versus Chris Paul and here's how that debate went on the Lakers the big reason why this wouldn't fit and I'm not talking about Lebron James. I know what Lebron wants. Essentially he's going to be able to get regime and Rondo you already Rondo so you're gonNA stop because you already have Rondo. Is that what you're telling. Chris Rondo probably has more than a tank right now. Chris is a better shooter we can agree to disagree or go back and forth on that but the reality is what you need and that was a better Klay Rondor Chris Paul Right now right now Rondo right now Rondo right now run all right. I can't tell room. No I can't go. We're going to looking at health. We're looking at what are you see that you in the huddle with you. Were on the hey of Chris eight healthy Christmas healthy. This is a different congressman schiff completely different conversation. I know your ear focusing on on this beef between the two players but it kind of sounds like you're saying Rondo is a better player then C.. P. Three absolutely Rondo is healthier right now. Just buy health alone. He's going to be able to give you more. I mean come on don't did I miss something crispell. Hurting all season well first of all Chris Paul more games than rounded last year I think or at least close I can look it up tasty eight. You know what the sad part is. I don't didn't play fifty eight point. I don't know Chris Paul More Games because he was held her then Rondo or because Rondo was dad enough to where you didn't play him. Games right Ronald played forty six Rondo was bad enough to be yes. That's the real measure so yeah so my summary of Rhino last year was that he was he was excellent off the court like leadership wise the young guys liked in the vets like in the coaches like he was definitely a positive force. He tried to keep things together during the difficult times over the trade deadline etc but part of it was because of injuries but even when he was on the court he was a you know he was second worst on the team net rating wise to mow wagner so in a lot of that was defensively some of it was turnovers and he just wasn't able to get into a rhythm but yeah I think that everybody would concede right islands and I are friends Ryan. You crazy dog like what are you talking about. That Rondo is a better than Chris. Paul has asinine date as I left the tank every single metric that he tried to Georgia. You're not GonNa like this exit Holland's. What did you say today? That Saddam was playing for me in a mean right now his response who was Sodano. Oh look at that house coming at you. I put him on television so he's back out reason he's writing. These takes Ryan out now. You're really GonNa get it man now. You're really GONNA get the full Sinato out all that's fine. You know you don't want to ride you. You better texting me an apology. I look man I mean is there concussion protocol in the N._B._A.. Notice George say call get them online. Get Him on the line yeah get him. We get them on my mind you with him about this. Is Nonsense and I'm GONNA ask you. Are you taking pills. What's wrong with you? Every once in a while Ryan comes with Sunday I know even before I've done the research I'm always in a ruined. He said like everyone makes any noise in Pasadena Room yes and then we talked about on there and then everybody capacity no. Nobody does that yeah John in L._A.. Heat or no heat when I throw the first pitch John Heater no heat when I first pitch have your thrown from the mound you gotta aim high otherwise I guarantee you. You're bouncing it well it's got to be I think it's in front of the Mount. It has a Su- of you guys at the size in front of them. He's got to be so you're you're not even throwing it from the mound. GotTa throw from the but it's two of us so they won't allow us to do that. Then definitely heat nearly fair enough Stephen is Santa Monica heater no heat.

I did the jump today. I haven't listened that yet all this in the pot on the way home good show take today on the morning show that this same caller has here Fidel in l._a.. Fidel what's up with Mary doing good good. You're Hispanic what you need. You're supposed to go okay. We're throwing. I'll throw he thank you mustard behind it. Thank you for calling because there's a lot of cool stuff. We Dot Com Media Day with Anthony Day all his press conference theft by focusing on the fact that he didn't give any indication fine if there was so it's interesting you bring that up. It was the one thing I wanted to bring it up here this hour some glad that you call and that's why I mentioned a mean had said this on I saw he had mentioned this on the morning show when he did his interview Rachel Nichols which is the one I saw right she asked him and he's like I'm just focused on this year and I was like Ooh but he did it with like this dismissive lab yeah huck didn't love that answer. I watched that interview. Have you not allowed. These interviews are are boilerplate right. You ask questions because you gotta ask a question even when you know the answer is coming but that's why you ask the question because every once in a while you get you get that answer and so she asked him. I thought this this is right down the middle real easier like I. I hope I'm here for a long time to come. We'll see how goes obviously things can change quickly but I wanted to be here because and instead he says I'm not really think more what you're not really thinking. He wasn't strange answer. I thought and if you're the Lakers you gave up so so much to get this dude man like that has to be an answer that since you a chill right down your spine right so are the press conference so he I believe came after the press conference and he said something the same thing at the press conference so Pelinka was sitting next zoom and rob was talking about how kind of part of this game when asked him about playing the four versus playing the five in part Oh robs answer about having demarcus cousins and Chevelle McGee was that they want to look at Anthony Davis as being here for the next ten years at that was the phrase Pelinka us and then Mark Davis Building laskey directly asked him about that and he's ten he did the whole we'll deal with that next year now free agent free about like being a Laker in so I think there are a lot of there are certain agents that tell clients to speak that way period about contracts and about future contracts and just look. I'm not getting into that stuff at all collided that pretty successfully last year although I mean like Yeah Yeah Yeah <hes> but other guys comedy went down other guys get on that side but I think you would've loved to have heard sure like yes. This is the place that want to be for the rest of my career but you know you're listening to be in Los Angeles. Go to me. I just think that there's a way to accomplish that without <music> sounding as holy noncommittal as he did right. There's there's a way to to express that like hey look. We've got a lot on her plate right now. Right now. Focus on the day that when that time comes will visit and hopefully I'll be here right. I hopefully I'll be here doesn't mean anything it means that all you know things can change right. He didn't do any of that like he did nothing to dispel or give you just even a little bit of comfort. You don't what I've noticed. A mean was remember when at the All Star game he did an interview an N._B._A.. TV and infamously rich Paul is like behind him on all authored by list all the teams right even the Pelicans yeah and it's like I almost feel like sometimes in in those settings like we haven't seen him a ton in those settings right that he's not so comfortable in those so. That's what I'm thinking what Michael saying right there the agent tells them. Hey don't don't be committal Kyri last year the don't do that like if you're just put my Jersey in the right so go ahead. I'm going to say like I can maybe see it from that perspective. That agent tells them hey don't be committal and he's just not good in those settings speaking about those the delicate type yes so he almost overcompensate and go. I'm not I'm like that's to me the way to read into it is it is pretty clear that he wanted to be Laker and so. I don't think that you would just want to be a Laker for one season. Ah especially for all of the things that incorporates whether that's that's chances to win a championship which the roster is in pretty good shape moving forward right there aren't there aren't any of those contracts they like the Mas Gavin Dang once they had to shed contracts teams have now that are going to be paying guys supermax money in three or four years they don't have that they have now seems at least relative stability after that was not the case a couple months ago. They have Lebron under contract for another year. He has an option for the year after that. There are a lot of free agents that could in. Kalinka mentioned this that could theoretically join a D. as the key to the next core of the team so all signs pointing this being a very good situation for him to be in for the rest of his career but just as a point of fact like Hey I am not. I'm not going to talk about it period. Yeah no no indications of it this year we're doing. We'll figure out when it comes in a lot of guys. We're going to start doing that. <hes> by the way there's another quote says what's <hes> spectrum sports net. I don't know if that was with these yeah yeah where he says Lebron thanks for coming his team but he's really coming to our team made the markets in Rondo already had a thing adding another great prayer like Lebron to that mix with definitely spelled championship. He say mustard that with a smile I know what the spirit of what he's trying to say is but again. This is probably Lens mortar what we're talking about. Maybe he's just not good at this at this part of talking about things a little bit more delicate than I love it here or whatever yeah yeah and again I think it's because even in New Orleans sheltered yeah one hundred percent like he's not getting those kind of like he was getting opportunities because he's Anthony Davis but it wasn't with the frequency that other guys are getting in many of the same way that you saw the video of quiet the kids choice awards nickelodeon awards whatever and he's walking the red carpet with his girlfriend and their child and they're like the telling them where to stand in for the and he's just like keeps walking here the lady in the background very snotty. I might add say it's not that hard and I said I would've smacked her camera after that get Outta here but no but it's fun and games to say Yeah WanNa live and play in L._A.. Into you realize this is what happens when you live in play in L._A.. Like it's not easy or New York these markets where yes you're going to have to learn become media savvy very quickly and that's not just the scrum or the press conference. It's all the added kind of opportunities or interactions with the media that you might have serve regardless of what happens and I think that all signs point to him wanting to stay with the legs for a long time. I do think it's smartest to just nip look. I am not talking about this all year period we don't want coming up all the time and discussions and questions and so so I am and so just kind of shutting it down in that way but even somebody Lebron is one of the smarter and more media savvy players that we've had in a long time and he's had some times in the past thing about the decision itself or or the the the George. They called the fiesta at the arena. Is there a name for that when you know not five six seven okay the PEP rally I mean there's always going to be stuff that if you're if any of us in front of Mike's especially with how many voices are anticipating breaking down what they're going to say that it is it is tricky to do that. No matter how good you are at right in so that I think you're kind of trying to support your point there. There's this bleep is new. I almost cuss like this is no this I knew for unchartered territory and so you know there are going to be some missteps there you know the stuff on the court. I've been as probably a lot of people in Los Angeles urban watching a lot of Anthony Davis clips over the last couple of days and getting back to kind of the crunch time stuff he to me still in the West is the is this the best kind of matchup on where he can play on both ends late and that's the stuff that I'm curious about so when when when and teams go small and it's Yokich for number against Davis that's like yoga is a tough match-up for anybody. Davis is kind of one of the guys that I can handle that a little bit like yeah yeah. I like. He's got focused got some Girvan does but Davis has the length kind of combat the girls so if you if you if you try to body and you'll get your so good at getting onto that pose and doing the drop step like Davis can still have his arm straight up and have it'd be almost over the length of the ball if the clip. What are the clippers going to do in that sense? I don't know if Harrell is a good matchup. They're they're gonNA played Michael. Jemima Green probably going to get a lot of minutes. I mean you know Michael Gray and I think there's a good player but he's not he's not going to stop Anthony. Davis Scorn Anthony Davis but I think if you're the clippers your your thing is okay then Anthony Davis just isn't going to get the ball like we'll suffocate the point of attack before for he can even get to a place where he's got the ball in beverly and Georgian and Leonard Give you a chance to do that some but you know it still can't you can't literally keep the ball out of the fan also. Can I mean again defender. He's a good defender and Garner Anthony Davis it was. I don't WanNa make a team. That's that's obvious reason why this guy the top what I'm trying to here here's what I I guess I'll ask it then to me some of what he has can be a tiebreaker late. That's Davis because he's got. He can take kept the dribble. He can take you down low. He can defend you on the perimeter. You're going to the RIM that matchup wise. He could be a Tiber. This goes back to my thing is how do you get through the regular season without asking too much of this guy well. How do you load manage him and Lebron and beyond the low managing of your off tonight? I'm just talking because we need that you're saying we talked about this Lebron last year. I said yeah he's playing less minutes than he did but they are very high intensity minute hardiman and they're not like I'm here minutes so the same thing Anthony Davis you could say Oh plus minutes and he's ever played but those minutes. He's on the floor. You gotta go you know like nets to the white. He's never played. He's never played with this are so the first I answer is well you you put Lebron Court with four shooters in like you just have Lebron think the game out for you know for sure. That's a better alternative than most teams have. If the defensive part is GonNa keep going back yeah that's very he's going to the expected to make up ground for so many people out there okay so maybe Stephen Gundy got on this a little bit. Is that Lebron Davis of the two stars. Hey guess what everybody else. Guess was your job is. You're playing hard on defense all game game every game that goes back to the personnel like yeah. I and I get why look I'm team. You had a chance to get quite a hundred times at all. I get why they did that and given what was left. They did well for themselves correct but also also we have to acknowledge that doing well for themselves did not necessarily bring them great two-way players they got a lot of guys or either one way or the other way and so you're going to have to cobble together something that works on a team level because individually obviously a lot. They got a lot of George safety by this premise regular season M._B._A.. Defense is more than anything about effort and energy and the coaches that Luke Walton was good about this he also had youth but if you get all these guys again again it's just chevelle McGee like when he's engaged offensively protecting the rim can give you something they're like. The energy for it to me is what I will answer that on the other side plus you leaving. I'm leaving okay because I had a question for you but I guess you gotta go some other than maybe tomorrow there you go tech's Hollins and he'll answer for sure. I WanNa get to our we anointing the clippers a little too quickly because there's some information other. That's not getting enough play enough. Love that the question yes. Maybe I'll give you that tomorrow there you go. I mean <hes> twenty four hours Jeez but Trudeau now. We'll get into it on the other side but I guys listen. You need a suit.
