NEW PODCAST PREVIEW - 15 FOR LIFE - DROPS FRIDAY

"If you've ever watched the rocky movies Rocky Belbow has an arc. He starts out as a slugger. Somebody who fights in bars for not very much money not very skilled but he can take a beating and he can give out a beating. He's the puncher. And through serendipity he eventually goes on to fight Apollo creed for the heavyweight championship championship and takes Apollo creed to the end of the fight but losing the fight he eventually comes back in Rocky Rocky to and Beats Apollo creed to become the world champion a lot of got him there was his grit it his fortitude his ability to stick with it to train hard to try out work Apollo to try out tough Apollo to never acquit all traits which are absolutely fundamental to succeed in anything life including business but rocky we got there with a bit of luck in maybe he just caught the wave at the right time because rocky three comes along long in along with that comes cluber lane played by the iconic Mr T. and and when he first faces rocky he beats the living hell out of rocky and takes the championship rocky. Jackie wasn't ready for rocky. Wasn't a scientific fighter rocky thought he was everything and nobody could touch him because he had done the seeming impossible yet. Here was this puncher a super puncher. That came out and destroyed him literally really. So what does that have to do with farming. We'll I feel like many farm. Entrepreneurs are the rocky Balboa's of the world. Nobody gives them credit they start out real scrappy grinding signing. They don't WanNa quit the catch a bit of luck. They build some success but eventually for some people that success only gets them so far and a club or laying comes along in the form of some sort of business black swan something they couldn't predict or deal with in knocks him. Out Mr T.. Probably pities the fool that gets knocked out by these things that they should have seen coming. This is a preview and an introduction to a brand new series of podcast episodes that I'm going and to be doing for farm small farm smart beginning this week on Friday and every week on Friday I'm going to to be doing business content to help you be a better farm owner a better entrepreneur a better manager of employees a better employee and hopefully help you increase your chances of success to try and make you more anti fragile. Think of this like learning the science of boxing becoming Muhammad Ali versus at George Foreman Who could just pound that only gets you so far business farm? Business is a long jetty game and you have to know how how to try and stay in this game for the long term and I have became increasingly worried as of late over for the amount of people that I feel like are just missing business basics. So what what. I'm going to try and give you every Friday in short-form these aren't going to be terribly long episodes. They're all going to be specific. Niche topics are business this type basics things that a lot of us don't learn they aren't taught. This is based upon my years of learning Ding. My years of experience all the boneheads stupid decisions that I've made I'm trying to give you a blueprint macro type lessons that you can then apply to your micro situation. Because I don't want you take that down up down. Rocky Balboa ride. I want you to take that grit in apply the science science and the finesse of Apollo creed and have a career that goes for a long long time in trust me. I've seen a lot of farms. That's a very hard thing to do. runny farm business for a very long time. So let's see if we can help stack the odds in our favor and do things a little better. Maybe come at them a different way. Ask the right questions. Avoid void things that you should really be avoiding so please join me here on this. Feed Friday for the very I episode. Thanks for listening in until then be nice. Be Thankful in do the work.

Predicting earthquakes

"Just so happens that right at the start of the side show. In Nineteen, seventy five I went to California amid the great seismologist Bruce Bolt from Australia and asked him. How do you predict an earthquake and his elegant reply referred to lots of technology and to theory, but the upshot was. We don't know so now in twenty twenty any progress. Will Meet Sylvan Belbow at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles Frenchaccent Tony. With from I was born in Champaign, grew up in Paris. Not many earthquakes there many earthquakes, because we have nuclear power, and so they're large enough that we care and also fast trains. Nuclear Power and fast trains. Earthquakes that's right. If you want your train to stay on track. If you want on nuclear power, plants not explode. You need to be conscious about your seismic hazard. Interesting is that what inspired you to follow earthquakes? It was part of my career path I'm not sure for utilitarian point of young trying to understand it for the sake of it really and so, what are the blocks and understanding it well? We don't understand how rocks break when they do why to do it. And so if we want to predict win, earthquake will happen. We have to understand the small mechanics of how rocks break under stress, and that is very complicated, so that's a fundamental problem that we need to address. If we want to predict spallina quakes to understand how breaks we have to run a very large number of. Of different experiments in the lab observations in nature, it portrays a very complicated behavior, and so what I'd like to do is to look at all of these observations together and try to simplify it in some ways that is used for so we can make certain predictions about what happens when rocks break, for example, if there's some signs that precede the failure that we can possibly use stress in rocks, stressing rocks. Yeah, so what we think of stress, we think about all I work too much, but for peace of rockets simply means the amount of forces that are exerted on it so stresses. Are you need to foster UNITARIA so if? If, you're pounding on the table. It's really the stress that the table will feel is not necessarily how fast you hit, but also it would be sensitive to the size of your hand. You know how much all of these energies is distributed over scenario. So that's one reason. There's a blockage in understanding. It's hard to work out how rocks break. We'll come back to that. What's the second blockage? Oh, even if we knew how a little piece of Rockwood. Break and certain conditions to translate this knowledge to a prediction about very large pieces of thoughts in the crust. That's a very difficult problem in its own sake, the behavior of rocks. Rocks, we know what at least that it's very non linear, and so we don't know how to predict the range of different ways that this can happen, and we observe in nature, and then it happens in so many different ways, so we have a lot of observations right now. That are totally unexplained, so they are two road blocks in my opinion I trying to understand the simplest of settings where we can of the about the object. We're under loud. We can push the Rock in one way or another, and then we observed a lot of things and imagining that we understand that have the we extrapolate, too. That's will conditions. Okay there, the problems the blockages how you solving those problems and enlightening us as to how to predict earthquakes, one way to proceed is to capture the important aspects of how Roxburgh so. When. We want to make predictions we need to use some tools in this typically are mathematical all the different conditions that may take place around this rocks, and then how fast breaks and so we describe this with simply how fast the particles are moving in. That's when really interesting aspect of earthquakes is that? Ultimately they are driven the happen because of plate tectonics, motion and stick on plates move towards each other at about a rate of one. Atom per second. So what are nanometers? But during an earthquake, things move extremely fast at about one meter per second, so we have between these two extremes, nine orders of magnitude of dynamic range so doing north quakes are moving a billion times faster than before. So that's quite a range and a lot of different things happen in between different types of phenomenon, happens different velocities. If you will, so we have to capture everything that happens from one nine meter per second to one micrometer second to one meter per second to one meter per second at every stage, different things happen, and so that's one of the challenges, so we'd have to have senses or on the ground from here to San Francisco to get enough information to get a pattern to be able to predict. We have tremendous sensors especially here in California from Los Angeles San Diego to San Francisco of course, because studying the senator fault and we know that this fault is overdue for large earthquake typically happen every what hundred fifty hundred sixty years, and he's been hundred sixty two years since the last one so on average. We would say that if it happens now. It's not out of the ordinary, but we. We have extreme examples where large earthquakes in the Senate to ask two maybe three hundred years, so we don't know if it will happen today as we speak, say to in one hundred years both possible within the historic behavior, but because of this risk, and has we have a lot of instruments, and we know a lot of things about the senators, and all the other folks that are rounded. Okay so are you making progress? Can you see your mathematics and you'll Nanno studies of the rocks? Really telling US something we didn't know before. Incrementally yes, words has been really extraordinary in in recent decades, is that because of all these instruments and sensors? We've been discovering different ways that played boundaries move to accommodate the motion of plates, and sometimes it's earthquakes sure, but sometimes it happens a little more slowly, and they'll steal maybe hundreds, or maybe a thousand times faster than the plates move on average, but much slower than doing an earthquake, so because there's so much that can happen in between an earthquake and north quake. You know this there's continue what we understand now is that earthquakes have different flavors. And it can be extremely fast and devastating all they can be. You'll slow slow going, and so we now use different language. We will slow earthquakes fast earthquakes, and to describe the continuum different behaviors that we seen so instead of predicting earthquakes. Now we're trying to explain all of the different types of motion that we see in earthquakes, being the most extreme case of it. And so the way I contribute to understand this problem is to establish. What are the equations in a mathematical way that described the problem and once you have them. What can they tell us about the different phenomena that can expect? And we've seen a lot of different things by using seismometers or GPS sensors, and they'll tell us different things, so it's being traditionally. It'll difficult to connect the dots. But if you have a mathematical equation that you can investigate, then, it can tell you all the things that you could expect. If the underlying theory was correct, so you can always improve theory, but assuming it is correct and applicable. Then it describe the range of possibilities, so you explore that, and then you can see it. Oh, under these conditions indeed I have. Motion of his plate boundaries down faster than average, but not earthquake like Oh. Yes, indeed into these different conditions I get. The typical earthquake that we serve and so what's interesting is that these equations predict some of the things we observe, but also things we have not observed yet. I'll finish with one big problem. Now you come from France and next door is Italy and there was a story not too long ago. All various seismologists who warning or trying to warn that there was no earthquake going to come. But then they got it wrong. And the earthquake came a time that was different and I think some of the population decide to sue the scientists. You know the story of course, don't you? Of course I do so. Of course these scientists have my full support, and I want to say that it's very difficult to make predictions especially about the future. Come on, you got to do better than that. Are you going to tell anybody? If you've got your equations refined so that you can actually put them out the bottom line is we're all trying to make sense of what we see and it's a very difficult problem, so I wouldn't expect scientists to make useful predictions, not when? An earthquake for particular size is expected to happen what we can manipulate with more confidence is the although level of risk, and then population has to make their own decisions about their level of acceptance of that risk and design of their houses and security decide for their own life balancing different lifestyles. They WANNA leave in historical houses that not refuted to support allowed earthquake then. That's a choice that they make. That we cannot predict earthquakes, but there are certain regions that are more prone to than others, and we can also say that they've been recurrence pattern in the last centuries. Certain area, so we can inform of for general seismic hazards, but we can't be responsible for people. Choices given these knowledge. So, it's up to you and me and don't blame.

A Ferris Wheel May Be Heading To Balboa Park

"Today on the southern california realistic report. We talk about the new development. Happy over at the park. Stay tuned Good morning welcome in southern california real estate report. This is bob mcguire. Daniel wise coming to you from san diego so kind of kind of interesting right balboa park making some some interesting interesting news the park just recently over this last. I think what's been now three years that they've been doing kind of a remodel around there on some of the museums. And things like that if you're seeing local and you've never been to that park. What an amazing place that is. It's really pretty and there's so much to do and if you ever have someone in town you don't know what to like go to the park. Go to the zoo. Young is compared to the safari park. Zoos pretty affordable and really easy really a nice sue. It's also rated one of the best zoos in the world. Yeah just go to the zoo you can you know. I've been to some of the museums there in front at work at one of the museums for a long time. And it's beautiful. It's a real. It's a real resource. So something that they're proposing doing is is adding an observation wheel similar to what can be found in london and in paris. I think patterson small one though right terraced read that. Yeah so it's going to be one hundred and forty eight feet tall which is pretty pretty tall and they're talking about having it at the at the plaza depa d day panama and so it's It's gonna be kinda right in the middle of the park. Basically kind of down by the fountain provided by the by the main fountain sort of i was at the museum of man i think is what it is over there right over towards the park. The main square. It's going to have really good views because from that location. You're kind of on top of a hill and you should see pretty far. Yeah yeah so. It sounds kinda cool. It's gonna be it's gonna be something that is going to be in the middle of the park. One hundred forty eight feet tall. You'll definitely see out towards the ocean towards coronado How is this real estate related. It's not really. It's just fun podcast today. And it's a fun thing to talk about like you know. Belbow park has been really working hard at trying to make these improvements. And i think the improvements are really you know. I think it's a good thing. It's it's you know it's one of those attractions that we've had for a long time. Sometimes it doesn't get enough attention. I think or it. Just it's been been a lot of talk about buffalo park and it being needed a lot of lot of it's been needing a lot of work for a long time so investing more money into the park is Is really important. We went there you know. Pre pandemic obviously relatively recently consider in the scheme of things to a folio event. And i think it was actually on a holiday weekend. It was like a monday but it was a holiday possibly immigrant. It was packed. Do you remember that. We barely found parking. It's a really popular spot tourists and yeah in the zoo. Daily gets like a ton of traffic. Yeah you know it's it's really. I mean there are some great restaurants around there. There's there's really there's great museums there's an amazing network of trails right. You know get a little. I wouldn't call it hiking nice trail locks. There's there's a bunch that are that are really nice. It's definitely my favorite place to go with the dog. The dog loves it and she She there's a dog park there too so she i can walk around lease or unleash and she's really easy to the dogs are allowed there and people are really good with their pets too so it really is a great spot and so this observation we on trying to find a little bit more information here to see when they're going to start this or when it's going to go up for just the permitting process when it's going to go in for an approval or for a discussion right now. It sounds like the application maybe has improved. And they're going to start talking about like you know probably i would. I would guess bulkin scale of it you know. That's pretty high. One hundred and forty eight feet. I mean that's being know similar in scale to the one in london so this is not just a ferris wheel that that's a distinction that you like a ferris wheel up. It's a slightly different process and putting like at this this we always. It's you know it's going to be the size of some of the condo buildings that are across the street from the park. And i could get some people happy about it. People might think that it doesn't fit with the you know the spanish renaissance the park. Yeah which is really been popular here in san diego. So they're saying they're doing this to to create like a draw to the park. Which i think the park gets. I think that's where you're going to see. The pushback you know is because the the park already has a draw. And that's the zoo right. So that's that's a big drawn. And you and i were just talking about how crowded it is so so we'll see how the process goes getting us approved. It's an interesting idea. It's going to be something that will definitely stay on top of and follow. You know it's interesting. Again you know coursing yego between mission valley. Now balboa park things like that there's a lot of new proposed things that we're going to follow coming out of the pandemic. i'm seeing more things coming up. You know it looks like there's going to be a lot more rotate projects that are gonna come under way over the next year and anything around that park is going to be. I'm location because the that park. You know great accessibility to a lot of wonderful things. That san diego has to offer including obviously the trails a dog park in the museums and the open space that exactly and So this'll be interesting to belleville park observation wheel it's going to be in the works now for at least the next coming months. We'll probably hear a lot of about it. I'm sure there is going to be a lot of pushback but we'll see it's an interesting idea. I think it's just one of those things i will. Hopefully people ninety nine job. People to san diego give people excited about coming to san diego and get people excited that more specific. Get to the park. So i think the park is something that it gets overlooked when you're here because of our beaches and all the other fun stuff that there is to do here san diego. It's just so there's just such a variety of things to do and a variety of outdoor things kind of outdoor stuff to do so if you're an outdoorsy person right especially right now. It's seventy five degrees now to try and fit everything into a into a week. Long trip is not easy and the other thing. That's easy is just you know at least when my family comes out you know it's it's it's pool time in beach time. That's really their two favorite things to do. So it's it's squeezing in other stuff. It's imagine so. Maybe this is just me but there are. There are some really good restaurants in bakersville launch hillcrest. Yeah exactly and and very accessible to the park. You know having something like this to like do at night. We like a nice attraction. Yeah yeah something. It's something fun to do. It's kind of fun thing especially it's time and clearly park wants more people. I think what the parks trying to do is trying to drive more people to their museums to and maybe updated a little bit more. Know it's definitely been. It's been around for a long time. Gasoline has kind of where everything is is. You know it's it's a little. It's a little tired. Know it'd big draw. Yeah so something. And hopefully you know. More funds that they can reinvest in the park too. So thanks for listening today. This has been the southern california real report do.

Day 302 (John 11) -Year 2

"Hey Bible readers? I'm barely Kabul and I'm your host for the Bible. Recap. In less than a week on. Tuesday. November third the Bible Recap Book drops into the world that's election day. If you're in the US and it just occurred to me that maybe we should have made a bunch I pre-ordered stickers that you can wear around. Instead we've got a bunch of free perks for anyone who pre orders check those out at the Bible recap, dot com forward slash books. John is the only Gospel writer who records the remarkable story read today Jesus Reyes, lots of people from the Dead Business John was a part of Jesus inner circle. It's possible that this particular instance was more of a big deal to him personally because he probably knew Lazarus Mary and Martha by the way you may recognize Mary and Martha the we read about in. Luton but this Lazarus is different from the Lazarus. Read about yesterday Lazarus gets sick and the sister send for Jesus, but he just keeps it. What he's doing and it's like I'm not worried about this illness isn't gonNA lead to death it's going to be used to glorify God, and technically Lazarus does die but he just doesn't stay dead. So Jesus still knows what he's talking about here, but I'm getting ahead of myself Jesus doesn't go to their house right away. You stays two more days before heading there. His delay has to be excruciating for Mary and Martha and possibly confusing for his disciples we'll come back to this. So put a pin in it. The disciples don't want to go to Bethany where the family lives because the people there are always trying to kill Jesus. It's just about two miles east of Jerusalem but Jesus knows it's not time for him to die, and in fact, it's time for Lazarus, to untie says pack up and head Bethany by the way I love the statement from Thomas here I can't tell if he's truly committed and his enthusiastic when he says, let us also go that we may die with him or if it's more sarcastic like let us also go that. We may die with him like you gotta be kidding me okay. Pack up I guess reading dragged to our deaths to. I can relate to both options when they arrive Lazarus's board as did Mary stays inside morning but Martha ever the doer runs out to meet. Jesus asked him to do something though she doesn't exactly know what? Then one of the most ironic moments Jesus Ministry happens. You know he's always talking about things on a spiritual and eternal level but people think he's talking about physical things belbow. Though one time, he's talking about physical thing he still gets misunderstood because Martha thinks it's spiritual Jesus says I'm going to raise Lazarus from the dead and she's like right right in the resurrection to eternal life and I bet he wanted to be like, no right now go grab your camera but instead he reasons with our practically about what he's capable of and saves the surprise for later. What I love about Martha's faith in Jesus is that it isn't specific to his ability to raise Lazarus that hasn't even occurred to her her faith is just rooted in the fact that cheese is good and strong and loving it isn't entitled or demanding. It doesn't claim anything other than the goodness of God that's where she drops her anchor next Jesus goes to talk with Mary the more emotionally driven of the two sisters. You may remember that she's the one who sat at his feet listening to his stories while Martha was carving the Turkey she. Says the same thing Martha said, but Jesus responds to her in a totally different way e weeps I love how he meets people where they are his responses to people are so personal, specific and attentive not only that but we get to see his humanity here as well. He's moved by their pain he enters into their grief even knowing he's moments away from raising Lazarus from the dead Jesus doesn't brush off the weight of what has happened but even still there are scholars who like if you really cared, you would have stopped this from happening. They don't understand his ways or his timing and they mistrust his heart. Jesus tells them to roll the stone away and he prays a prayer to the father. Thanking him then calls Lazarus to come out of the tomb. If you're visualizing this snow, Lazarus probably has to hop out no lie he's basically mummified. Some of the people who see this and believe worship Jesus others can't make that two mile trip back to Jerusalem fast enough because they want to report back to the Pharisees there worked into a frenzy. They realized that if Jesus keeps doing these things, everyone will follow him then Rome wilting the Jews or out of control and will oppress them and deport them. A-this the high priest pipes up and becomes an unwitting prophet he speaking God's truth but he doesn't know it. He wants Jesus to die. So he says it's better that one man die for the people then for all the people to die. And at that point, the religious leaders star plotting Jesus death. He knew this. So he stayed low profile, but it's important to note Jesus wasn't living in fear of his future was actively working things out to correspond to the father's appointed timing for his death. Speaking of timing today my God shot was Jesus timing for coming to the village of Bethany. The text tells us that Jesus loved this family. So why did he hold off on rushing to them while laser was sick? We know he's not a Germaphobe so that can't be it. He's waiting for Lazarus to die because you can't raise a person who isn't dead. He intentionally designs a situation where things get far worse in order for his power to be made known all the more but make no mistake. This isn't a selfish move on his part. This isn't Jesus trying to show off or look cool Jesus doesn't have his engine at a red light. This is always pointing to the father and. His glory just like Jesus did in his prayer of thanks to the father. In fact, this miracle sets in motion the real effort to crucify Jesus he knew this would be costly. I wonder if that's even part of what moved him to tears, the tomb stone and the grave clothes aren't too far off for him and he knows it he is about to finally put death to death, and this is just a preview. There is so much beauty in the story everywhere I. Look from his intentional timing that somehow always seems too late to his sweet personal interaction with the sisters to his power over death and the grave bees where the joy is. If, you want to send us a Christmas card. We would love that we'd love to see your faces and pray for you by name and thank God for bringing you alongside us in this. So send our way. Our mailing address is on the contact page of our website, the Bible Recap Dot Com, and we'll also post it for you in today's show notes.

Riverwalk Project Gets Approved

"Today on the southern california real estate report. We'll talk about the river walk project in mission valley stay tuned going welcome to southern california real estate report. This is bob mcguire. Daniel is coming to you from san diego so more new construction and more new construction mission valley. Today's today's podcast. So this is pretty interesting. This is on the west side of mission valley so this will be on the direct opposite side of qualcomm. Yeah done a podcast in the past by this. Awhile ago this has been a project that's been in the works for some time And it's the golf course. It's the golf course. Project rates to one. That's taking up. I think nine holes of that. The river walk course of course so it's one of the back nine. They believe right. Yeah so yeah exactly and so this is going to be so this is being done by heinz and for those of you. That aren't familiar with some of the national developers out there to give a little history on this. This site was owned by the levi cushman family. And they've been working on this in one way or another since like the the mid nineties. Yeah and we have definitely covered this this pretty extensively in the past. So it's it's been one of those projects that you know. I think right yeah. Everyone's heard everyone knows it's happening. Who plays golf over their noses happening. Yeah for sure that golf courses definitely gonna go away. It's going to be altered. It's going to be changed this. In my opinion of all the sites that are emission valley. This is definitely my favorite. I would feel like if i were. Hd hines and. i'd acquired the site that i would. I would have landbank and kept it as long as they did it because it really is. It's a superb site. A that the only nine holes of golf course are they're still going to be eighteen. It's still gonna be a full regulation chorus for anyone who's concerned about that So is that what they're doing. They're they're they're sort of reconstructing it as an eighteen hole course just in different parts around. The development was to back nines on that course. I've okay so of them. They're taking out one okay. It's a big project. So the the entire project is going to consist of It's going to be built out in five phases And the total build out will be done in twenty thirty five so each each phase of each bill will be a five year build out gas. Oh so the total build out for this project is going to be forty three hundred apartments and condos one hundred fifty two thousand square feet of retail shops and a million square feet of office space with uses split between four districts and bisected by a trolley line and downtown style main street. So they're gonna make you kinda cool they're going to make it so that it is a more It's a less urban neighborhood and more of a neighborhood type field. So that's their goal. They teamed up with the landau owner levi cushman and so. They're intimating that it'll be constructed. I'm sorry i think. I said five five year periods. It's gonna be in three five phases and the first phase is going to start with thousand nine hundred apartment unit so thousand nine hundred multifamily homes and most of the community. You ll space and the neighborhood parks. So they're going to start with you know beautifying the site bring in the getting that laid out and then bring in their multifamily and then the single family and the office will come around that now. The real question is on this in something. That's out there. Some of the pushback that they got. I read some of the comments from the city council meeting last night and this and by the way this kind of fresh off the press this is this is brand new nose up today. The eighteenth of november right. I believe this article from yesterday face. So sorry photograph each of you. In by the city council it was the the approval was unanimous. Which is incredibly rare here in san diego. I mean they've only been working on it since the mid nineties so you. That wasn't an it was it's unanimous now. I think this project has had a lot of pushback. It has it has and look a lot of it to was to get to get the subsidize. Units in the developer agreed to four hundred thirty subsidize units so and that is going to be for people making up sixty five percent of the area's average median income. So if the average median income in that neighborhood is sixty five thousand sixty five percent of that is going to be you know thirty five to forty thousand dollars something like that so it is going to create some how one of the big things has been you. What are we gonna do about nurses and fire people and you know teachers and things like that. So you're going to see more of this. In these areas. I think for a new development this size to have that spread out throughout it is going to be pretty nice and so the units are going to be the same. So you know it's gonna be a really pretty homogeneous community once it's all done. Yeah timber dot gov course that rather billy not is really close to the Westfield shopping center it so it's really close to fashion. Tha that's what. I mean the field. Yeah exactly so. It's so we borders fashioned malley now the other thing. That's kind of cool is they're going to put in a light a light rail substation to so you're gonna be able to live. Let's say downtown. Take the light rail to office space. That's going to be there and things like that. So this is baramulla hillock confused so there is a trolley station at the mall. Yeah it's different. I think that it is different. Yeah i think this is more of a of a station like the downtown station that you can go to different areas so i think the one that's at the mall is just like arab. You're either going east or west right. And i think this one kind of get your around to a bunch of different places if i'm understanding correctly. So here's the real question. Though about this deal. And the question i have. Maybe some of our listeners probably haven't seen question as well that is the office component. The office component is going to be very interesting right because due to the pandemic and the changes again in office space. This is a pretty office centric development it certainly has a lot of residential but the office consists of. I think it's one hundred ninety five acres. And i think they said that it was going to be for office somewhere around a million square feet which is a lot of office. So that's That's something that's going to be interesting to see how this goes so to bring in the retail and the multifamily. I think those projects you know. We'll go fairly quickly. I think the multifamily for sure having new product in that location. That's going to be a pretty pretty hot commodity. I think it. Is you know. And i think the retail will do well. There's always been demand for retail. That's where the retail center of the city is really of ago. You know you're not. You're not really able to get a lot of big box retail anywhere else in the serra mesa neighborhoods and things like that. Hit belbow so. I think from a standpoint service. This'll be interesting. The other thing is you wonder How is this going to crowd or affect the the qualcomm site. You know as far as i don't know if the qualcomm site will have as much market rate units. I think they'll be more related to the university as time believe. That's that's what i'm thinking too so you know. This is going to be a lot. This is going to be a pretty high density apartment project. so there's going to. It's going to require a lot of absorption. They're spreading it out over a fairly significant amount of time but at the same time the initial project of it to to absorb that that number of units. It's going to be interesting so we're going to keep an eye on this. This is this is an exciting project. This is a great site. If you don't know where it is it's on it's on west friars road. It's just down from the mall on your left hand side of the street. It it off the apron you can see it off the freeway pin. They're gonna redo all the river walk on that into so now this area of mission valley from basically qualcomm all the way down to pretty much like to the bottom of linda vista. That whole river walk is going to be completely changed. So that's going to be a very nice amenity for the city. And that's gonna that's gonna be a really nice area you know they're gonna clean that all off and hopefully that'll be a really neat kind of outside open space area that everyone can use. So that's exciting to you. I think I think it's going to really change. The the look of mission valley mission valley has always. The interesting thing is about mission valley. The one thing with this is going to be. What are they going to do about the flooding mission. Valley has had a consistent history of flooding. You're not gonna stop that you can just do things to prevent it and i Speaking with someone that that's a big part of these projects is just flipped. Detention. and prevention. what do you do in these certain instances and sometimes you just can't prevent it but the way the products are built accommodate for that. At least that's what i was told. I'm not really sure the exact exactly how they do that. Yeah yeah so. There's also going to be a bridge is that is like a is like a river crossing type bridge and i. I'm not sure where it's going to be located. It doesn't say. I was looking for that. But i think you'll be able to walk from there into the mall parking lot. I think in them walk down towards the mall doesn't make sense kinda kinda cool so it's going to be a really walkable and a really nice community yet. It's still going to be very close to the one sixty three as you. Now you live right above this. It's going to be close to all the eight freeway as well. So yeah so. I mean it's it's it's really a well located well-located project and it should be good for anyone so anyone working anywhere in the city so we'll keep an eye on this. Thanks for listening today.

Finish six and seven on the season and questions before this year end already about next year for Joe Moorhead That's just one of those to the stories that we will be covering today Michael Divinity. He's back remember it. Always you're on said he would be ready to play for the National Championship. Game was six games ago. He's ready to play and all the best to him and she tries to find his way back to prominence. Speaking of Back Dylan Moses. Maybe the most impactful injury of the season for the Crimson tide. The quarterback of the defense never got to the first game. Well he has decided he is coming back next year. And that is The the biggest recruiting hall and Nick Sabin has already gotten In the in in the next coming class because Dylan Moses was a projected reacted top fifteen pick in the NFL. Big Show on tap will go down to the belbow which is in the fourth quarter right right now in Charlotte with Virginia Tech Leading thirty to twenty four but the cats have the ball. They have looked good at times. And at a sorts of times games but They still have a chance to win this game by griffith from Noah on the dogs will they have enough for a team. They're missing eleven critical thirteen critical players on their team and a Greg mcelroy in Orlando as tied. Get ready to take on Michigan. Jim Harbaugh and saving had a dual news conference. Today of the pictures are priceless. What's also wondering process? A couple of questions we will ask you throughout the day. We we posed both of them on twitter.

So if you'd like to throw those in at the end of your call at the beginning of your call or tweet us feel free to do so our final program on what has been a momentous year we will get to the calls right now beginning in Dublin Ohio right outside of Columbus. Joseph is first up you. Can you hear me Paul yes I can thank you great. I just have a couple of quick questions. Certain about the Buckeyes so after taking a couple of days to think about it Do you think based on what you saw. Do you think deserves to be the elite group of college football right went to Clemson and Alabama absolutely. I think Ohio State is one of the three best teams in the country hands down. Yep Okay and as far as the referees go I think Jimmy Johnson. I think when I was watching On the documentaries about the year he said don't give the rest of the chance to take this from meal. I had to say it but they might have just didn't play well enough and so I think I took it away from them at the end of the day they had a chance to win. And it's just a point 'cause you feel like all throughout the year there was almost a destiny but they couldn't quite get it done and it's disappointing because we're going to have to wait nine months until he can feel house play again but lots of my last quick question. Do you think Ryan Day as the right man for. Could I jog now. Just be what you've seen day is a Phenomenal coach in. I think it's very fortunate to have him. It was one of the smoothest who this transitions. I've ever seen going from one of the great coaches of this era to someone who is done as well as he has started thinking back echina- made I made this comment about a year ago. On a show about Urban Meyer's reigned in some ways it was disappointing and got a lot of blowback from Ohio state fans. But when you go back to the undefeated season when they couldn't go to a bowl game you go back to and they want and fourteen. They should have one in fifteen the best team even Seventeen eighteen and they were one lost. Ohio state teams inexplicable losses. This year's team was phenomenal for Ohio state. To only get one title out of this run here is is pretty amazing. We're GONNA continue with more calls. Ron Up. Next around Rausing Frankfort Kentucky Chucky Ron thanks so much always always a pleasure to talk to you. Thank you spend a lot of sense. I've chatted with you Four I get to the Kentucky Game On a scale of one to Tan with one being very matter and ten being excruciating. How would you rate your kidney stone pain you say? Is there a number over ten. No yeah well I'll say this Ron I would. I've experienced. I think so many other people have already been through and and it's comforting to know that you're not the only person who's who's been through it. I'll tell you that but I I feel so even though I'm still kind of pulling myself back together again The feeling today versus a week ago is is literally Night and day as well. I'm sure to hear that but I've talked with people who have been through that and you have to experienced understand it you know. It's always interesting for men to talk about. What their their wives or or relatives go through childbirth and none of us ever know it but based on what I hear from people in relation to kidney stones? It's the male version of it even though it's it's both both genders can have it The switch subjects I'm not overly optimistic. UK What they've got a decent chance. I suppose yeah. I think they've frittered is listen. You're right I mean they are they are they are marching right now now but the time is running out. Yeah happening here Paul and I always enjoy listening to you. Wish you only good. I saw the new year. And I'm pulling for you man and About Way who do you think at all do you think. LSU will as of this moment. I do favor Lsu good to you. Thank you Paul. I ran into a Clinton fan about an hour ago. seemed like there are a lot of them around here and he says I. I sure hope you're picking Lsu. And I and I said well make your day cleanse advancing just because people pick against them. They're going to win. It's worked pretty well for the last twenty nine games Let's continue with more calls and spike. PIKE IS A in Georgia. Hey Spike afternoon. Yo what's up Paul. I'm glad to see you survived your kidney stone video. Would we'll be online This afternoon available for nine ninety nine for your New Year's Eve viewing I'll be sure and tune in buddy but I I just wanted to say happy new year. Thanks for a great show. And how bell it owes Ron and then tires now. It's amazing I mean yeah I listen I understand. Everyone has their favorite team but It's been it had been difficult for me and so many other people not to get wrapped up into this LSU story. It's it's one of the best one I have ever seen. While I grew up in in Louisiana I don't live there now. There's been waiting for sixty one years to see this. Well I understand that and thank you for the call. Listen I most of not most the some of you may know. I spent a year a little over a year of my life in Louisiana right out of school covered. LSU and I did get an appreciation of think of of what you occasionally here on the program. Is that the people of that part of the of the state in the great people everywhere but they are some of the most authentic people in in the world old and I think that's another reason why I I am pulling so hard for them because coach coach is a product of that environment. That's why he got this job that's why he is been able to be so relatable anyway. We'll give you an update on the Kentucky game when we come back. We'll also continue with your phone calls at eight five five two you four to seven to eight five will bounce around throughout this day. We'll also talk about what happened yesterday with Florida's eleventh win of the season and Mississippi state's seventh is law. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast and we welcome you back and looked up and I saw pretty much all over at the convoked bowl where the Kentucky wildcats have done. The unthinkable Winning at the end of the game with Lynn Boden. Another fantastic finish will give you an update on that coming up here momentarily but the cats just I mean there's nothing you there's nothing more you can say about what they've done with so little so many things have gone wrong for a mark. Stoops has team but the resilience and the perseverance and the fact that Short of a kickoff return here with fifteen seconds so they are going to have their biggest win of the year and cap yet another Dramatic Lee the Amazing season is is just really cool. We will talk with some post game on that coming up here momentarily. Greg is up next there greg. I'm here you hear me. I sure do okay. Hey remember Fourteen Iron Bowl when offer lost and the and the main reason was that they kicked a bunch of goals. You know they. They intercepted Blake Sems three times and they lost that game so yes. Yesterday you had jeff from Columbus call in wine and the reason wasn't because of the rest were the calls. It was because they lacked any kind of offensive ingenuity once they got in the red zone and they had two three pills. So that's why they lost and I'll say I'm is my favorite caller of the year. Have a great day. Paul thank you. Thanks likes world. I may not have been my favorite year but but it was certainly the last call of the year Catherine is in Florida. Hello Catherine I Paul Happy New Year and I'm so happy to see you back. I was laughing when you were comparing Having a kidney stone to being in labor because that was what I was just thinking when the guy was having great it from a zero to ten. It's a wonder that these kids there's so many kids in this world once you go through labor. It's an when they named named Labor of love. That's true. Well we Florida gator. Fans are so happy with Not only last night to win. But the whole season It's just amazing. I using I thought it was off to a rocky start. But once We had a change in quarterback. It just seemed like it turned the whole program around and and Not only with the performance by Trask but the whole attitude of the team seemed to change. They started working together. Better look like they were having fun. And then they had respect for coach mullins and the assistant coaches because at the beginning of the season. I it it just didn't look like that was happening so we're just real happy to have a eleven two seasons so and thank thank you. We love doing very much. Katharine appreciate the kind words and I agree with you. couldn't have been happier for the GATOR nation. And and I I was on in a program this morning and I I think people reacted When I said but I said I think Florida could be heading toward a Juggernaut Yeah no they have to to get past Georgia but With Dan Mullen is done in two very short years. I think is amazing. I mean I I think this program is is well positioned to To be a contender very very soon like next year. Let's continue with More calls in eight five five four to seven to eight five and Daniela's in Texas Texas. You're on the air. Hello Daniel Hilo WanNa wish you Incredible Twenty twenty. Thank you I saw a statistic the other day. Hey that said that since Nick Save and spend the head coach at Alabama the Crimson tide. have missed more field goals than any other team in college. Football Ball. Believe I've seen that too I don't have the stats in front of me but They have they have been near nearly nearly disastrous From in that in that in that regard I I was wondering if you think it's a through a a lack of you know when he goes and gets these five star players eight years. He's not hitting on five star kicker. No no because They a couple years ago they they signed. I think the top kicker in the country. Listen Nick Sabin is not one. That's going to ignore the same problem over and over again. He has gotten good kickers in there for. I don't know what happens. Once they get in there well Appreciate your thoughts and as far as favor caller I would go with Greg from Alabama before his incredible service to this country. Treat thank you. Yeah and that's that's something we are looking for today Just you know you don't have to make your whole call about if you wanNA throw on your favorite caller I mean I think we all know who the least favorite color of the program is. We don't have to spend a lot of time on that. That's self evident but The favorite caller could be a lot of people. So we'll we'll throw. Oh that in as we spend the next four hours together here on New Year's Eve Mike is in South Carolina. Hello Mike how're you doing. We're doing great. Yeah so I was. You know man how how come Davos we always get in favor of them. It was clearly a fumble by Justin Justin Ross and it was clearly that fumble when when this happens I'm I'm I'm tired. Hand but when Info when this happens on the other hand we never get those calls when when when it was clear that a team oh in the middle of the game so my coming home and make sure I understand understand this You're saying is an Alabama Fan Alabama. Never gets the good call. Is that what you said between Alabama Fan not to answer a straight question. I think that was the question I think that's what he said. Brian is in California California. Hello Brian Ball. How you doing my friend Rotor through the Whole Hotel California. Such a lovely voight plays no it. Is You know Paul. I woke up today and it was just such a lovely day and I think the main reason why because I I don't even have to listen to all those Alabama Crimson wind or you know talking about how wonderful they thirteen is and you know a wonderful they overrated. Coach is Nick Sabin. You know one of the most overrated coaches in the history of college football. So and you know it's such a joy for me not to have to watch you know Alabama you know get lucky again in me national championship. Also it's a great day for me man. It's a really wonderful day. You know I'm glad to hear I'm glad to hear that And and as you know the the last Mike Golic. What's that so you're so you're really really happy Nazi album in the playoffs right? Well of course you know and and it was interesting. You know the last time I was on that guy that You know that Overly Emotional Alabama fan that was on the loud Star News Bashing California. I remember that talked about allows your state of was and you know it was interesting because Nick Sabin you know just He was out here recruiting in California. And if I'm not mistaken. Nick quarterback here. Yes he did. He picked up a couple of quarterbacks from California but wondering is considered the top quarterback in the country. Yeah you know what that's very here since one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. You know what I'm saying. It did so wondering what your boy guy that was. So let's get which which Chalygina fans annoy you the most well pretty much all of them you know quite frankly you know I mean Kinda like Stephen a Smith. That's with regards to the cowboys you know he's he he Him and I are on the same page. except I'm you know I'm I'm you know can't stand Alabama Alabama and I'm so tired of listening to these Alabama fans learning and complaining you know. They got lucky to win a couple of championships. They honey I mean ask you. which which one did they get lucky to win the one? By twenty eight against Notre Dame the one by double digits against Texas stories. John One against Georgia Georgia you know. Throw that stupid pork-barrel played And when they were at at midfield and it was intercepted a bitter about. That's luck to complete a walk off touchdown Well they in Georgia was had a fourth down. Play wasn't into sports. Play at midfield. Wasn't it a sport. Play that game I I was The Games of malaria to me. Yeah Yeah it was a sore downplay mid field and taking it you know they decided to go for it and I won't say the championship inch game. That's a national championship. Yeah that was the championship game. That was a national championship game championship game. But who's counting in California. You checked in can't seem to check out you know Brian. Did you also say Sabin. When was overrated? Well yes of course he is. You know I mean you know. He's he's one of the most overrated coaches. I think in the history of college football football. He's still isn't any isn't the coach bear. Bryant was everybody talks about hold wonderful. He is and I'll tell you something. Hate to run Brian. But we must go due to an update on what we just got through watching Or somebody who got through washing any more to come after this. You're listening listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast. We'd like to welcome everybody on the Paul Finebaum show Peter burs Dj Shockley and this is crazy. We can barely hear what's going on right now as we saw arguably one of the greatest bowl performance in in really sec especially Kentucky football history. Lynn Bone Junior setting the all time bowl record rushing yards by a quarterback but it was his arm. That did it and before we get into that it was set up as a chippy kind of spicy game right off the bat. Dj Yeah it started early in the ball game. I've seen some stuff happened before the game with Lynn bound and he had to come out and cannot relinquish some of that but he came out an excellent ball game the ball in his hands from the first quarter on and he showed what his medal is all about. Eight minutes. Eleven to ballgame. Finish this this game off with his arm. Everybody News to carry the football and he cared football. Carry this team by frankly in so we start looking at two and this was going to be a great chess match right. It was not only what was going to be able to do but on the other side but foster but really what ended up. Happening to is at Kentucky's defense struggled a little bit early of getting Virginia Tech off the field enough to where they can get the ball back and Boden's hands well a lot of was they were in a lot of thirty shorts and you think their quarterback hooker did our outstanding John cleese. They're running back. Get a really good job picking up some. RTD uses legs a lot in this game. Too and Kentucky's defense worn out a little bit but the end the day they went they need the most Cova. Some big stars big plays and this was an outstanding performance on both sides of the ball for Kentucky. We talk about an eight minutes ago. You and I look at each other other. Were like you've got one chance you got one. Can you do it in over and over. They just found a way and it really reminded me of watching. Remember Jacob Pastor or the Yellow Tigers back in two thousand seven going away. This is all you have and you knew that it was an opportunity to take to the next level. How do you go out and look at this situation last year? Having what the unbelievable season and the coaching job they did this year. It's unbelievable I mean you'd think about losing some of the top op players not just in the SEC. In the country and Benny Snail Josh Allen. Knowle's outside how do you find a way to get those guys. And they came out and played a really good football game as we're joined by our may cash Daniel right here and Mosul casting.

Law Them your hate me. I'll just play my office. All cast talk about the legacy of what you guys have done the last few years and he made a leave this program and the fact. That is now on the way you guys did today. You were banged up left. The ball game came back in. But how's it feel you look up and now you're a winner in so many different ways man. It's it's it's an. It's a hard the time that right there. It's all worth it. You get to build a bond that nobody else understands unless you lived nobody else understanding unless you live this brotherhood goes deeper than football it. It goes deep and everything so I'll look up and see two thousand nine hundred belbow champions man. That's the only way I WANNA go out the only way I wanted to cash. You say you're not supposed to be here when you say that. What is it me? Those people donors saying you cash. They need to be a displays in to have this type of career for the Kentucky wildcats.

Can you talk about a guy who on his football off inside a ball what he meant to this football team going from receiver going to play quarterback at what he was able to do today. Talk about a guy who's not supposed to be here. He has struggles getting here as well. What does it mean for got like Lynn Bone to have that opportunity to give your team will win right there?

Have you heard some of the theories. Defense isn't as good refresh my memory there. Nothing nothing to refresh. It's just pretty obvious. Ah I it's an adage in college football that when you have an offensive juggernaut it can not always be can affect your defense. But why. Why is that? Because you're not recruiting deploy. No it's not bad it's just that The defense is is not as physical and practice Team old line. Coach is always say Pat. Diving probably my favorite that when you run the football you toughened up your your defense ranch. And when you're throwing the ball field like Alabama has the last two years it does have a frankly thing if you're honest with yourself I know Alabama fans will be Some of the evaluations have not been as good as they have in. The past or some of the players haven't been developed not as much as they have in the past because there is not the enormity of talent on the defensive side of the ball in reality maybe in in number of stars ars and projections but in reality is there has been over the last five or six years Maybe seven years at Alabama and. There's another reason that and you know what the reason for that is because Georgia is beating Alabama recruiting. LSU is now beating Alabama recruiting. Clemson is beating Alabama recruiting. I'm not being. I'm not saying the coordinators whose Alabama wet through but. That's not my problem. That's that's that's Nick Sabin not. I didn't think problem when you when you when you when when you cycle in Germany coordinator in wet through. I'm well aware of the answer those questions. But that goes into recruiting when you're bringing in musical chairs there's every couple of years you lose players. Yeah how how did. How did nick? Favorite in Alabama ended up What are they at in recruiting right now? Of course the number two all right.

It's October eighth chief hundred eighteen and I'm on the phone with Alan Blum, a renowned criminal defense attorney from San Diego, California. We're talking about one of his clients Cynthia Sommer who is charged with murdering her husband back in two thousand seven and it seems hard for Allen to hide his irritation during our conversation. Even now as he talks about how Cynthia was treated by the San Diego district attorney's office cynthia's case gained national attention back then and her trial was live streamed on court TV, but it wasn't necessarily the facts of the case that had the nation's attention. It was the salacious details. The prosecution presented about how Cynthia acted in the days weeks and months after her husband's death. Because of her. Death behavior. She reacted to his death in a way that others wouldn't have reacted or didn't think she should have reacted. She she had sex with a friend of his she had. She went down to you wanna and partied and she had a breast implant, and because the district attorney made such a point of that as opposed to real facts of the case it got a lot of publicity. This is Jillian and you are listening to court junkie episode, sixty one. It all started at one thirty four AM on February eighteenth thousand two when Cynthia Sommer dialed nine one one to report that her husband Todd Sommer had collapsed. According to Cynthia he had gotten up out of bed just minutes before turned on the light and told her that he didn't feel good before then collapsing onto the floor. Todd was just twenty three years old and was a marine sergeant in the military. He and Cynthia had met in nineteen ninety nine just three years prior when he was nineteen and Cynthia was twenty five they had married had a baby. And now lived at the Marine Corps air station Miramar in San Diego, California with cynthia's three children from a previous marriage Cynthia could be heard on the nine one one call telling Todd Todd, I love you. Please don't do this to me. What am I gonna do? Without you, the dispatcher asked if Todd was conscious and breathing and Cynthia said, no Cynthia asked if she should start doing CPR and the dispatcher told her, yes, Cynthia begged them to hurry and to said someone to their home earlier that day Cynthia Todd and therefore four kids had gone to an amusement park, and they had just put the kids to bed when Todd told her that his heart felt like it had been fluttering Cynthia had asked them if they should go to the hospital and Todd told her no that he was just going to sleep. If it off military emergency technicians responded to the scene, but it was too late. Todd skin was blue in models. He was taken to the hospital and a half hour later was pronounced dead. An autopsy showed that Todd's death had been caused by cardiac arrhythmia, the naval criminal investigative service. Or NCIS conducted a routine investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. But concluded that he had died of natural causes. As time went on Cynthia started dating someone else and she and her children moved to Florida with her new boyfriend. But also as time went on investigators with the NCIS started to become suspicious that there was something off with Todd staff. According to Todd's medical records. He had been feeling ill and had even gone to see a doctor twice in the days before his death. The first time he went the doctor told them it might be food poisoning. But when that didn't subside Todd went back a few days later and was given an IV fluid and a prescription for the stomach flu. And in addition to Todd's medical records. The investigators also thought there was something odd about cynthia's behavior after her husband's staff neighbors had reported that she was throwing loud parties, she had gone to Tijuana with some friends on a party trip and just two months after Todd staff she had spent over five grand on breast implants. Investigators ordered the Todd's tissue samples be sent to the armed forces institute of pathology, or af I p in Washington DC for testing there were looking for heavy metals that would show of Todd had been poisoned and sure enough when the test results came back the tissues from Todd's liver and kidneys tested, positive for one thousand times, the normal level of arsenic. On November thirtieth two thousand five about three and a half years after Todd died, Cynthia was arrested in Palm Beach county, Florida and charged with murder Deputy District Attorney, Laura gun told reporters that this was the coldest homicides. She would ever try in terms of being absolutely cold blooded. They were alleging that Cynthia had murdered Todd in order to collect his insurance money. Prosecutors then filed for special circumstances of murder by poison and murder for financial gain. They decided not to go for the death penalty. So instead she was facing life in prison without the possibility of parole Cynthia was extradited from Florida to California and was held without bond while she awaited her trial. And while she waited court documents filed by prosecutors were released accusing Cynthia of having been eager to collect Todd's life insure. Prince which was two hundred and fifty thousand dollars as well as monthly survivor payments. Media outlets ran stories with headlines such as woman accused of killing husband for implants, and arsenic, and black lace DA says she killed hubby to pay for boob job. Cindy is attorney went on the defensive telling reporters that Cynthia was only trying to make herself feel better after the death of her husband. But as much as prosecutors wanted to use cynthia's behavior after her husband died against her the judge in the case judge Peter Dutta ruled that testimony about cynthia's lifestyle afterwards wouldn't be admissible in court. He said it had little to do with whether Cynthia poison Todd or non. Scindia's trial began in January two thousand seven deputy district. Attorney Laura gun told the jury that Cynthia was the only person greedy enough to murder her husband for his military benefits. And that she was the only person close enough to him to poison him in the week leading up to his death. She said the only people around him were Cynthia and the four kids. She called arsenic, the perfect poison and pointed out that it's odorless colorless and tasteless, and that it's acceptable to the general public. She said Cynthia earned minimum wage at a subway sandwich shop and that after her husband died, she received six thousand dollars death gratuity payment from the military and then two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month later from his life insurance policy and Cynthia wasted. No time in spending that money gun side on shopping parties. And of course, breast implants, she said Cynthia wasn't living within her family's means and hadn't been a year prior to Todd's murder. The military had turned her down for a loan due to that very reason and gun set a trust fund in Todd's name had been drained down to zero and January thirty first just eight days before Todd got sick. Prosecutor gun told the jury that Cynthia had gone to see a plastic surgeon on February eighth two thousand two for consultation on breast implant surgery. She only had two hundred eighty dollars in her Bank account at the time gun said. Cynthia told investigators when they interviewed her the Todd had gone with her to that appointment but gun said she had lied about that in the week and a half before tau died he suffered from acute gastro intestinal distress vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea all symptoms consistent with acute arsenic poisoning. She said she also pointed out that two months after Todd died Cynthia started a relationship with a new boyfriend in his opening statements. Cynthia's trial attorney Robert you Dell told the jury that Cynthia didn't do it. He said there would be no evidence presented that would show that Cynthia had any connection to arsenic. There's not one document now one piece of physical evidence to connect Cindy to arsenic, or even an attempt to get arsenic, nothing. He said he said that evidence will also show that Cynthia did not benefit financially from Todd staff, and that the evidence will show that he was the best thing that ever happened to her. After Todd died. He said Cynthia lost her medical benefits Todd's monthly income and their free housing from when they lived on the base and that her life came crashing down. If the motive for killing Todd was money this cost her significantly. He said. He called Todd cynthia's Knight in shining armor, saying that after a failed marriage and three kids Cynthia and Todd had married after dating for six months Todd was helping her raise her kids, and she was deeply in love with him. You don't told the jury that Todd may have been exposed to arsenic during a military trip. He went on to El Centro, California on February eighth. He said a former toxic waste dump was located there. And he noted that Todd. I noticed that he was getting sick after eating some eggrolls. He had purchased from gestation market on his way home. The prosecution appeared to have two strategies when it came to presenting their evidence both going towards an alleged motive the first was to show that Cynthia and Todd were having major financial difficulties at the time of Todd's death. And the second was to show cynthia's unusual behavior after his death. The verse responded to the scene was one of the first witnesses for the prosecution he said when he arrived Todd's body was cool to the touch and that Cynthia was standing over him. He told the court that Cynthia made a comment about Todd's life insurance policy as Todd was lying on the floor. Unresponsive Cynthia told him that they had joked about it a lot. But that she never thought she'd see it it referring to the insurance money. The office manager for Dr Scott Miller, testified that on February eighth Cynthia came in for breast augmentation consultation. She had a before photo taken and was told the surgery would cost her five thousand four hundred dollars. She came in again, a little over two months later after Todd had died on April eighteenth to have the surgery done. She paid by personal check before that on April fourth on cross examination. The office manager said that Cynthia had listed Todd as her emergency contact and that she was given information about financing plans to pay for it. Cynthia's inlaws Todd's parents testified to about their sons relationship with Cynthia and about their financial struggles Todd's mom, Yvonne, told the jury that when her twenty year old son married Cynthia she was concerned about the rush. But she grew to love Cynthia, and they had a very good relationship. She said Todd and since. The seemed to be very happy together. But that occasionally Todd would talk about money problems and not having enough food for the kids. She recalled getting a phone call from Cynthia about a week before. Todd died Cynthia told her that Todd was vomiting and had diarrhea and asked her for advice on what she should do. Yvonne thought the call was strange and did her friends when she told them about it. After Todd's death. She and her husband flew to Miramar from their home in Florida to be with Cynthia a couple nights after Todd died, Cynthia told them she wanted to go out with some friends. And so he von told her that she would watch Cynthia and Todd son she called cynthia's phone after midnight. When Cynthia still wasn't home. And when Cynthia did get home, she was mad that Evonne had called. She said Cynthia told her to mind her own business, and that she would grieve her way and Yvonne could grieve hers Yvonne's husband Mitchell, Todd's father, also told the jury about Todd in cynthia's money problems. He said he loaned them about nine thousand dollars made a down payment on their minivan and co-signed on their car loan to help them out. At Todd's burial and Nashville he said Cynthia brought a few of her military friends with her and stayed at a motel nearby. He went to go pick her up, and he said the room looked more like a party thing. And that there were beer and wine glasses everywhere. He said after Cynthia received the insurance money, he told her that she should put forty thousand dollars away for each of her children, and for herself and eighty thousand dollars for her in Todd's young, son. But he said Cynthia didn't wanna put that much away. He finally convinced her to put twenty five thousand dollars in a trust fund for her kids forty thousand dollars for her and Todd son and twenty five thousand dollars for herself. The prosecution also called cynthia's first husband's mother to the stand. She told the court that went Cynthia told her about Todd she described him as gorgeous a marine with wealthy parents. And a big trust fund. She said he seemed to be pretty well off for a young man and Richard over fields an accountant who knew sent the end Todd. So that he offered his condolences to Cynthia within hours of Todd having passed away. He said she thanked him, and then told them that she had questions about their taxes. She asked what do we do since Todd is dead as far as getting his signature and filing the return. Eva stone or a military police officer who drove Cynthia to the hospital that night testified that Cynthia asked her to stop. So that she could get a pack of cigarettes on their way there when asked if there was any sense of urgency to get to the hospital. Eva said not from Cynthia uncrossed examination. However, Eva said that Cynthia children that are husband was a good, man. And she was sure he would be okay. And when she was informed that her husband was dead, Cynthia cried and asked Eva to go with her to see his body. Miramar station. Supervisor testified about an unusual question Cynthia had asked him while at the hospital. He said he asked her if she needed anything an intern. She asked him if she would have to repay Todd's enlistment bonus. He told the court that it wasn't the type of thing. He would expect from someone who had just lost. Her husband. The prosecution also called a forensic accountant to the stand April real who justified that she had analyzed Todd in cynthia's finances. She told the court that in the short term Cynthia did benefit financially from Todd staff before tie-dyed his monthly income was about seventeen hundred dollars a month. They didn't have to pay for housing or medical care since those were provided on bass after Todd stuff Cynthia had to leave the base, but she received monthly checks from social security in VA benefits up to seventy nine hundred dollars a month. She said and then received the payout from Todd's insurance. Real told the court that Cynthia had spent the insurance money before the end of the year. She said forty nine percent of it went into trusts for her kids. Twenty four percent went directly to Cynthia and twenty five thousand dollars was put into a trust in her name that was controlled by Todd's family. The rest real said Cynthia used to pay off loans by a computer pay the IRS and other expenses on cross examination. She agreed that Cynthia did not purchase any luxury items with the money. Dr Steven Robinson, the medical examiner who conducted Todd's autopsy, testified that Todd's original cause of death was ruled a heart failure. Because nothing else seemed to make sense. And there was no reason to suspect foul play. He said their findings were basically none Todd was twenty three years old six foot one inch tall two hundred and four pounds and had a heart. That was anatomically normal. The were also no drug. Found in his system. The prosecution then tried to somehow tie, Cynthia to arsenic. They called three different agents with the NCIS to the stand all who testified about how easy it was for someone in the general public to purchase a poison like arsenic, one agent. Purchase seven vials of it on EBay for twenty five dollars and Ricky Renton another special agent with the NCIS testified about other ways, they looked into connecting Cynthia, but the arsenic he told the court that he travelled to London to question cynthia's ex-husband. He asked him whether Cynthia had ever watched CSI or forensic files to which your ex husband said, no he told Renton that. She watched party of five Beverly Hills nine O, two winnow, Melrose place and friends. Renton testified that he contacted the producers of Melrose place and found out that there had been six episodes that revolved around poison, but he had no evidence that Cynthia had ever seen those ups odes or had mimicked them. Mm Renton also testified that he purchased something called grants kills ants. An aunt poison laced with arsenic, he purchased it at a local grocery store where Cynthia likely shopped. However, he didn't have any proof that she had purchased any herself. And next up. We'll see what the defense has to say right after this quick break from today's sponsors. Simple.

No time in calling Cynthia to the stand who testified that she met Todd in nineteen ninety nine through a mutual friend within six months of their meeting. She and Todd were married. She said she loved him. And that they had a lot of fun together. They just clicked she said she said Todd started to get sick on February eighth thousand two after he went on a trip with his fellow marines, tell Centro, but she said she thought he was getting better until he collapsed she recalled when she lost saw her husband as he was being taken away in a gurney. She said she told him that she loved him hugged him and then took his wedding ring off and put it on her thumb. She admitted to getting breast implants about two months later, but said Todd knew that she was going to do it. It was never a secret. And that he was in favor of it. She read aloud a card Todd had given her on Valentine's Day just days before his death. It read happy Valentine. Wednesday, Princess, my life is so happy with you in it. I couldn't imagine things any other way. Maybe for next Ballantine's. You can get yourself a set of Bubis. Thanks you or thanks for making me better last week. Love you forever. Todd. After Todd died. She said she couldn't sleep and couldn't eat. And so she went to a doctor. She said she just really couldn't function on April eighteenth. She went to the plastic surgeon to get her breast augmentation surgery later that night, she said, she met another marine someone who she said she's engaged to today. And cross examination. Prosecutor Laura gun brought out an Email Cynthia had written to her new fiance. The Email read, quote, I couldn't see five years into the future with Todd baby. I see fifty with you. When asked what she meant by that. She admitted that she never saw herself being old with Todd. She was also questioned about how she was able to give Todd CPR, but also being on the phone with nine one one Cynthia said, she didn't really remember much from that night. Janet, Lippert cynthia's mom was called to the stand testify about Cynthia and Todd's relationship. She said Cynthia was extremely proud of Todd. And that she enjoyed being the wife of a marine. She said Todd was a wonderful son in law and a great stepfather to cynthia's kids and he treated them as his own. She then testified that Cynthia was hysterical when Todd died. She said when she arrived at Todd in cynthia's house sometime after his death, Cynthia was curled up in the fetal position in her bed clinging onto one of Todd's shirts and sobbing. Uncontrollably. Janet said she took her to the local clinic where she was treated for insomnia and acute grief. Janet said Cynthia kept saying I just don't know what I'm gonna do over and over again, she said an officer came over to the house to explain the benefits that she would be receiving and said Cynthia had no idea what they were prior to that. She said Cynthia also got a tattoo dedicated Todd with his name birthdate, death date and the Marine Corps motto. A friend of cynthia's testified that she and Cynthia would take their kids to church together. And that they talked every day she told the court that she was actually jealous of the relationship Cynthia and Todd had she said when Todd was deployed Cynthia would get really sad because she missed him. The defense also called their own arsenic, experts to the stand. The I was Dr Alphonse poke Lous who had initially been contacted by the prosecution, but was now testifying on behalf of the defense. Dr poke Lous testified that he didn't believe that Todd was poisoned with arsenic for a number of reasons. One the fact that Todd had been getting better after going to the doctor in the days before his death. He continued to go to work and even went to the amusement park with his family the weekend he died. Dr Polk Lewis said that with levels over one thousand times normal in the liver. Todd would have been sick and at a hospital suffering from severe progressive symptoms and organ failure death would come quick he said, and it would be a violent and painful Duff to when Todd went to the clinic a few days before he died blood tests were done and everything came back normal. If Todd had had a massive dose of arsenic in his system. His white blood cells would have been abnormal and his blood pressure would have been low. Instead, it was slightly elevated and three with such high levels of arsenic in the liver and kidneys, you would expect to find elevated levels of arsenic, everywhere arsenic, would spread throughout his body and organs would be damaged Dr Pokemon said, the acute arsenic theory makes absolutely no sense. And he was concerned whether Todd had really been poisoned, and what in the world was going on and who took this test. He said. The defense had another expert who agreed with Dr poke Lous, Dr Laura LA bay, a forensic toxicologist at national medical services lab looked at the lab work done by the af IP she said, she looked at Todd's blood urine gastric fluid and bile along with various tissue samples. She told the court that the plastic container holding Todd's bile was cracked and some of the sample had leaked out Dr Lebed testified that although she agreed that there were significantly elevated levels of arsenic, and Todd's liver and kidney tissues. She said. She didn't agree that it was due to acute arsenic poisoning. She too said that Todd's other levels should have been elevated and that his organs would have been damaged Dr la- bay. Also took issue with the way, the af IP tested the tissue samples. She said their methods were unacceptable. Dr la- bay also said she didn't agree with the prosecution that Todd could have been given one large dose of arson. Nick around February eighth. She said it wasn't conceivable, but he would have been able to walk around for ten days without being severely ill. Dr la- base. Supervisor Alabama house gotta agreed with Dr LA bay. And also testified that she found disturbing problems with what the af IP. Did. She said there were calculation errors data that lacked labels and no reference to a chain of custody. She pointed out that there wasn't even a summary sheet. The defense rested. But then they suffered a major blow when the judge ruled that the prosecution could now introduce evidence of cynthia's behavior after Todd's death. The prosecution had argued that because cynthia's attorney Robert you Dell had questioned cynthia's mom about how she had reacted to the loss of her husband that then opened the door to the prosecution witnesses to rebut that and judge Dutta. Agreed. So in the prosecution's rebuttal they introduced even more damaging evidence about cynthia's behavior. They called to if cynthia's former co workers to the stand who testified that just months after Todd died Cynthia went to Tijuana with them and participated in a wet t shirt and thong contest. One of the co workers said that the day after Todd died Cynthia came into work and casually told them what happened. She said she wasn't acting as though it was serious. But the other co worker told cynthia's attorney. The on cross that she did think Cynthia was acting like a grieving widow that she was just showing it in her own way, three marines. Then took the stand and testified that they had sex with Cynthia in the weeks following Todd stuff one of them telling the court that he and his wife had had a threesome with her that same marine recounted how he had seen cynthia's now. Fiancee's driving Todd's car around which made him upset in her closing arguments. Prosecutor gun told the jury that Cynthia connived everyone at first into thinking that she was a grieving widow. But that her words and actions after Todd died showed otherwise she said Cynthia had an I ha moment shortly after Todd's trust fund ran out in January. And so she decided to poison him for the insurance money. She recapped cynthia's behavior afterwards, noting the breast implants the sex with four different marines the loud parties and the wild trip to Tijuana. This is not somebody who's grieving. She said. Ed. This is somebody who celebrating what else shows her true colors. She asked for sexual partners just in the first two months after Todd died. She also said that nobody else could have poisoned Todd and surmised that Cynthia possibly got the arsenic from ant traps and then gave a large dose to her husband. But when you Dell gave his closing arguments. He said there was no evidence that Cynthia poison Todd and no evidence that he had even died from acute arsenic poisoning. That the military lab that conducted the results was questionable. Instead, he said the initial findings were correct that Todd had died of a heart attack. He said Cynthia may have wanted more than she could afford on their monthly income. But that doesn't mean she killed him. The jury of seven women and five men took about twelve hours to reach their verdict. Guilty. After the verdict was read and Cynthia was taken back into custody. Laura gun give a press conference outside the courthouse. Saying that she was so glad that Todd's family has Justice finally for the death of their son. She said she had spoken with the jurors after the verdict and that they had accepted early on the Todd had died of arsenic poisoning. That once you do that. There's nobody else who could have done it in a jailhouse interview Cynthia said, she was very shocked that she was shocked that she was arrested shocked that she had spent fifteen months in jail already and shocked at the verdict. And this is the point where Alan Blum that renowned criminal defense attorney from San Diego signed onto the case. There was a lot of publicity about the case because of this insatiable aspects of it because it was a young woman and the young marine, and it kind of mysterious death and then the sexual aspects which they just record trinity was attempting to gain a lot of mileage on on the case. So it was a prominent case. Before I came onto the case on the the news here in San Diego. And I didn't know the attorney who is representing. Cindy, he was an attorney primarily from Florida. So I didn't have much contact with him personally. But it was kind of in the headlines and after her conviction, and after the controversy came out to controversy being that there was so little evidence to convict your yet. She was convicted almost scarlet letter kind of conviction because of her post death behavior, she reacted to his death in a way that others wouldn't have reacted or didn't think she should have reacted. She she had sex with a friend of his she had. She went down to you wanna and partied and she had a breast implant, and because the district attorney made such a point of that as. Opposed to real facts of the case, it got a lot of publicity when she got convicted by girlfriend heard about the case, and she turned to me and said, you should use something about that. And almost ironically, the next couple of days later Cindy's cousin Todd gave me a call and asked if I would come onto the case and talk to him and talk to her about it. And so I did. And so I did Ellen thought the prosecution's case had some major holes in it. They couldn't find a single thing that linked Cindy to the possession of arsenic. Well, let me take that back. They found one thing. And I'll address at one second. And they went after every different thing that they could find they they looked for everything they even sent. There investigator to the city of London in order to talk to a particular military person who had been transferred from San Diego to London and their investigators are team of win over to London to talk to this person because this person. Had knowledge that Cindy, or at least they thought that Cindy had seen a particular TV show a drama on TV where somebody had been killed with arsenic. So they said, well, we don't have anything to show that she has any contact with arsenic. But she saw TV show, and therefore she's probably guilty. I mean, they would just going after every possible little straw that. They could find they test. Of course, we went after her computer they chest. They looked at all of their phones. They looked at everything and found nothing except one thing what they found in her house was a particular companies and an Roach bait little box. She hit some ants in her house. And so she had ant repellent, and they said it has arsenic in. It may never showed a purchasing. The this amount. And when we get finally when the district attorney raises issue, it was one of the points that we had just about how the first lawyer didn't do the job. He should have done. We determined that in order to take this particular product and. Take a look at how much it contained how much arsenic. It contained and compared to the amount of arsenic that was in Todd's to tissues of living kid. The district attorney's argument that she could have killed him by feeding him. His aunt Roach is an is an bay poison. We determined that. She would have had to have fed him twelve pounds of this material not only over the course of a day or two or something. But in in a single day. I mean, a hamburger is a is a is a quarter Pounder. So when you go to McDonald's you get quarter pound me. So they wanted to say that she has sixty four even the volume itself is absurd but keep it ahead to sixty four sizes of quarter pounders, let me give you sixty four. Nobody can even eat for on sixty four quarter pounders, and he would have had each sixty four of them in order to get to a pound of of of this stuff. And it was burgers. He would have had to eat anti the absurdity of that. You would have thought would have stopped district. Attorney from emphasizing the only thing that they could was that she had had not suffered grief as she should have. So Allen decided to take on cynthia's case. And one of the first things he did was rather unusual. He decided to file a motion for a new trial based on any effective assistance of counsel. Remember that cynthia's trial attorney, Robert you Dell had opened the door for the testimony about cynthia's sex life and trip to Tijuana to come in an alien saw that as a big mistake, not only that. But Allen questioned whether Todd had been poisoned. At all when I started all over. I wasn't sure exactly what was what we were going to find. But this turned out what we found was. Primarily that the trial lawyer who had represented Cindy was was trying hard doing his best. But it overlooked a lot of different things, and particularly at overlooked, the fact that there was no attack to the fact that. Her husband had not died from an arsenic poison overdose. At all and affect the trial lawyer. Was saying. Okay, conceding that he had died from this poison. But said it wasn't Cindy. And not sure exactly how it was. Or maybe he contracted by being someplace else like in a field on a in an east county far away from here, which was like an open field where were contaminant and a lot of Agra agricultural things in pesticides and stuff. And so whatever happened. He must have gotten it from there. But he didn't start at the beginning to show the that her husband had not died from poison at all. In what perhaps was a surprise to everyone. Judge deta delayed Cynthia sentencing and also in an unusual move decided to hold a special hearing. We're Robert you Dell could testify at the hearing you del admitted that he had made several errors representing Cynthia. And that he felt terrible about the verdict. But prosecutor Laura gun argued that that wasn't enough to overrule the jury. She said you Dell did his job within the bar, and that Cynthia was convicted because Todd's tissue was filled with arsenic, and she had a giant financial motive and wanted out. But judge data disagreed saying, quote, Mr. you Dell has an approach to this case that was focused in being so focused. He missed many areas that would have been fruitful for his defense. And in missing those areas, I believe that he has been ineffective based on that. I'm going to order that MS summer be allowed to have a new trial. So on November thirtieth. Two thousand seven instead of being sentenced Cynthia was granted a new trial. Instead of just picking up her last attorney had left off Alan wanted to start from the very beginning and get access to all the evidence in the case in order to prep for cynthia's new trial. When I took over the case there were. I'm going to estimate like thirty thousand pages of documents. Thousands and thousands of pages of documents. And it took a while to get into that as he was going through the many documents he discovered some rather interesting emails between the prosecution and their own arsenic, experts one of the most suspicious aspects of the alleged arsenic poisoning was that of the twelve tissue samples tested, only two of them, the ones from the kidneys and liver came back as positive the other ten were negative, and as the defense experts in the case said, that's not the way arsenic, poisoning, typically works. You would typically find arsenic everywhere in all the tissues will in the emails Allen discovered it appeared that the experts from af I p the ones who conducted the test or confused by this as well. We found the emails, and we discovered an asked for more emails between the people from the American. In the American the armed forces institute of pathology, af IP who did the evaluation who ultimately were sued, and and their practices were enormously contested, the af I p send a lot of emails between themselves at weren't revealed entirely too. Defense lawyer somewhere, but some weren't. That showed the day themselves had tremendous suspicions about about their findings. They had never seen anything Mike it. So we discovered all these emails which raised a whole lot of question marks. And all these emails are flying back, and nobody can explain it. Basically, the doctors were saying I've never seen anything like this. We don't understand it. And then the prosecutor the DA Laura gun was basically sort of sending emails cajoling them saying what could be an explanation here or there could be next nation there, right? And the prosecutor agents police agents which were through the naval crime institute. NCIS they were doing the same thing kind of cajoling their own to doctors to say, well, it could be explained. Maybe you've never seen it for this reason that reason and then he found something else in the files. Mention of another set of backup tissues that hadn't yet been tested. Alan contacted the DA's office to see where those backup tissues were. I made multiple requests to the district attorney to find out where they were. And there was this tremendous sandbagging by the district. Attorney Laura gun she tried to escape and push us to different areas and say, she'll get back to us on it and so forth and never did. But we didn't give up on it. And we said we need to have these review. Finally, when we sent an investigator, and we finally found the source of found it that we were not going to get. Response from the district attorney's office. I went to the San Diego naval hospital. We have a hospital co Balboa hospital, which is naval hospital. And that's where the autopsy was done on Todd. And we went to the to the past allergy department to find tissues in my investigator contacted the department where they should have been. And in fact, they looked at naval records. We showed them the records. We had and they said, yes, we have those. We have another set of tissues. And what was ironic about it? Actually, it's more than I wrong. It's what was really. The serious in and underhanded about it was that when he discovered these issues it went to a particular refrigerator and sitting on top of the refrigerator preserved as they should have been in a manner that was appropriate for preserving them was a box where these other tissues are on the box. The box was labeled do not destroy but do not produce signed Laura gun Deputy District Attorney so Laura gun new of these tissues and attempted to to to hide them. And not present them to the defense. Ellen contacted the DA's office to demand that the tissues be turned over to them. So they could have them tested, and he was about to go through the court to get them when the DA's office decided to handle it themselves, and it was at that point. When I demanded that they'd be produced for us. And that and her response was before I filed a motion with the court to or to have them tested Middle East the defense. I didn't trust them at all for the for the testing of it. I didn't trust the af IT because I felt their their work was sloppy. They had something to protect and that they had contaminated. The first set I didn't trust the district attorney's people because she had been sitting on this information for several years. All this time. That's India's sitting in jail and missing her kids. Graduation and mission this missing that. And gun is arguing in front of the jury how strong this evidence is she knows that it's week. And she knows also there's another way of finding out and solving the issue because there's another set of tissues. So I didn't trust the district attorney do the right thing. And I filed the order for the court ordered the release of these materials so that a defense investigator a defense expert a defense team could take a look at tissues before the judge issued the sign the order. Instead of just responding to the order gun on her own took the tissues away and symptom over to a laboratory it turns out she went to a laboratory, which was highly respected probably one I would have used as well. I think they were Canadian or they have a Canadian connection as well as the US, but they're very very well known. They have been described as having being the gold standard of laboratories because they're so incredibly solid and reliable. She ended up going to a good place. I think in dirt until you're or for whatever reason she ended up going to the place, and they did it full test in these tissues, including the very the very same. Tissues. That the liver and kidney that had been offending that had been so content so contaminated showed fatal amounts, and of course, they should nothing all the other tissues tested with nothing and liver and kidney tested with nothing all the tissues tested negative for any kind of arsenic poisoning. Meaning tide was never poisoned. So you're probably wondering what happened next without any notification on afternoon it was about four thirty in the afternoon. And it was a Tuesday. I think it was Tuesday because I was playing Bill. And I got the call. Thing to a have any objection to the district attorney dismissing this case and the court wanted to know if I could if I could if I was going to make an appearance that afternoon because it had been scheduled that afternoon without my knowledge, and I said, no most definitely I want to be there. And appearing in my UCLA. Golfing shirt court. And because ironically at the time, I got the call I was on it's going to sound silly. But I was on the seventeenth teebox belbow apart and immediately to my right on this elevated golfing hole was belbow hospital. And from where you're standing there on this golf course, I'm looking belbow a hospital, and as I'm talking to the judge's clerk. I'm looking at the at the courthouse 'cause I can see both from right there. And I said, yes, I most definitely I most definitely want to be there. And we went to court that afternoon. And even though there was there was a tremendous effort. I think there was even the last minute efforts to keep it, quiet. And that's why it was done. So quickly. I don't know that for sure, but all I know is it's very unusual to come to me and say, okay, the the George have been filed. Do I want to appear the district attorney would have done it on its own? She would have done it on her own without me being there. The judge properly said no, this is a matter which everybody has a right to appear. And so we're going to we're going to defense the opportunity to be pressing. So even that was done in a very unusual and shifty way later that afternoon. The case was dismissed and Cynthia was free. And that evening, I went with my girlfriend to. To the San Diego County jail women's facility, which is in eastern part of our county. And there was Cindy ready. Get out she had been told the San Diego district attorney Bonnie demand is released a statement after the charges were dropped, quote as district attorney for San Diego County, the buck stops with me and the high profile prosecution of Cynthia summer for murder our office made the right choices for the right reasons at every step in the process. But last week we were all reminded that the criminal Justice system is not perfect. And I understand how recent developments in the case raise several questions where tissue samples tainted could new testing had been done sooner. How could a convicted murderer suddenly walk out of jail? A free woman. I wish things had gone differently. But there are checks and balances in the criminal Justice system designed to protect both crime victims and criminal defendants along. The way as prosecutors. We followed our ethical duty in this case. And while MS summer came close to spending the rest of her life in prison the system eventually worked. She went on to explain why they had filed murder charges in the first place, the arsenic levels that had tested positive. There was no other medical explanation for Todd's death cynthia's apparent financial motive along with her odd behavior. She said they sent the extra set of tissues to be tested out of fairness to the defendant. And because it's their job to pursue the truth. She said the results shocked them, quote within hours of hearing confirmation of this new information, we dismissed murder charges against Cynthia summer. We did not want her to spend even one more day in jail, and we took action as soon as the judge in the case could review our motion in court as prosecutors when we receive information like this. It's our duty to act and act quickly. So why did the arsenic levels show up in the first testing Allen has a theory when they did the testing when if I did the testing and had these twelve samples somehow the samples that they tested for liver and kidneys somehow got contaminated, and for example, from other higher than other types of agents at the us on the laboratory workbench, which shouldn't be introduced from one case to another probably affected these two tissues, meaning some other agents, some other solution from some other case that was part of the lab bench inadvertently found its way onto the tissues for the liver and kidney. And that's why they were so spiked high with the arsenic, and the others were clean Cynthia filed a lawsuit in September. She thousand nine alleging that prosecutors in the NCIS falsified evidence improperly arrested. Her withheld key evidence and failed to disclose relevant facts that could have helped her case. But her lawsuit was thrown out for years later after a federal judge ruled that she couldn't prove any of her allegations. And since Cynthia was never imprisoned. She wasn't eligible to be compensated in another way, either the government never gave her any money for wrongful conviction because we stopped the conviction because the appeal to place in between the jury verdict of guilty and the sentencing had she been sentenced, and then we got it overturned. She would have received. I think it's one hundred dollars a day not much. But at least it's something a hundred dollars a day for every day that she was in jail of the almost three years. He was in custody away from her family away from their kids having lost custody and control over kid's been away when they were having their graduation, and all those special things, she would've at least received some small compensation for that. Had. She been convicted meaning been sentenced this India. Go district attorney's office released another statement after cynthia's lawsuit was dismissed quote over the last seventeen months. Miss summer's new attorney has repeatedly accused the trial prosecutor Deputy District Attorney Laura gun of gross prosecutorial misconduct today. The court made a finding that counsel for MS summer has presented no evidence to support those accusations as district attorney, I personally reviewed every aspect of the handling of this case in great detail. The accusations made by MS Sommer's council are on. True at all times during the prosecution of MS summer DD gun acted in a professional ethical and legally appropriate manner. There will be no further comment about this case at this time. Had it been the situation that they had never really seen that second set of tissues and an inadvertently found it, and then be tested it. Then you'd be in a position to say. Okay. We were vigorous in our initial prosecution. We base it upon a lot of emotion. But we really thought she was guilty. And we had any evidence was there. Even though the evidence was suspicious. The evidence was there showing the these deadly ounce of ours. Nick in in these two tissues, and she was the person who had most access to her husband, and therefore we gave it to the jury to decide they came back guilty. That's all part of being ineffective prosecutor and being an aggressive prosecutor and doing your job. But when you know, there's another set of tissues, and you hide that information, you're not doing your job at that point. It's interesting to note that when the district attorney dropped the charges she did so without prejudice. Meaning she was leaving the door open. So Cynthia could potentially be retried one day I asked Alan about. That. And do you think that there's a chance that she could ever be retried, but anything steel radically possible? I mean, there's a chance that that you could be called by NASA tomorrow because they need a new astronaut, go, tomorrow's an expedition. I guess you could say there's a possibility. And then they could ask me to somebody who has never flown a plane in your life to to fly the jet to fly the aircraft to get get us up there. I mean, these things are theoretically possible. So if you ask a question about what you just asked me, you could it could it ever happened? The answer's Yes, Anything can happen. But we'll see be tried. No. Of course, not Cynthia has since asked a judge should dismiss her case with prejudice ensuring that she would never again be charged for Todd's murder, but the judge denied her request. Although he said he couldn't imagine this case ever being retried. And that's all for this episode.

Inside Brewery Faisan, A Belgian-Inspired Taproom In Detroit's Islandview Neighborhood

"Daily Detroit is brought to you by the community support our work at Patriotair dot com slash daily Detroit. It's Friday December Thirteenth Twenty nineteen on today's Daily Detroit. We're going to visit the pheasants. Well actually we're headed to a brewery named after a pheasant brewery phase on over on Bo Face Street in Detroit's island view neighborhood and the beer. It was really good so good spin so I'm glad I got to go on this one so good. We did the hard work of afternoon afternoon drinking. So you don't have to okay. We are down in brand new brewery phase on with Owner Rachel Slava. Who owns the place with her husband? Paul and Rachel Welcome to daily Detroit. Thanks for having me. Well thanks for having US and for pouring us a selection of your beers here so first of all congratulations on opening. You've been open since October. Right correct correct. We opened in October. Twenty four tells the story about a brewery face on this is French for pheasant right Which is kind of your logo and everything and we are here on both as street of course but give us the story of like how this came to be? Pheasants are kind of known to be all over to trait so when we purchased this property. Happy about four years ago. We were seeing them around. So that Kinda helped us us. Admit our decision on naming reface on Also there's a lot of French names around Detroit Trey obviously and because we wanted to Belgian beer focus and they speak French in a lot of Belgium. We figured it kind of all kinds of played together pollen. I moved down here over a decade ago actually came down to the city to go to Wayne State and five and we just completely fall in love with Detroit and we basically started home burying ten years ago after winning a chilly Kuka at Kuhnen Warren Put on by Lake A homebrew club out there. And just Really fell in love with brewing and as Detroit. There weren't a lot of breeze and the ones that we have had been around for a very long time. Like this is before batch opened and some others and and And so we just kept kinda seeing like well. Let's see what this would take for us to do it. You know. No one's doing a Belgian focus. And that's what we are the most passionate about. So we started exploring those ideas and Yeah it was a basically a ten year journey to get open from that point. You bought this building actually four years years ago so quite a while what was what was this building before so it was just storage originally when it was built in the sixties it was Rigging Company Company. They didn't crane rigging here. So there's no you'll notice. There's no beams or structural sports throughout which is nice because as big open space so we could design how he's off it so that was appealing to us. And you don't really find warehouses in this size range March where nine thousand square foot. We really only renovated Betas six thousand of it and we also when we purchased it purchased thirty feet lot to the side which we have a some parking and a little patio space as well a lot of warehouses that we looked dat previously where either a lot bigger or too small And a lot of the advice that we were given along the way was to start bigger so new kind of a range of what size we wanted and we found this place it was kind of too good to be true. Most and yeah the family that owned it They own the property across the street in the block and We were talking to them about leasing the space and then they realize how much investment they would need to do to get at white box You know they got a couple of quotes for new roof and then suddenly the tune changed a little bit to. Do you want to buy it. So and that actually was perfect for us because owning the building health does leverage abridging financing and everything so it was important step so this is a pretty interesting location here on buffet in the island view neighborhood kind of out of the way off the beaten path. I I guess you could say and I'm just thinking especially for years ago. This was this was way off the beaten path. Was this a case of like this is kind of what you guys could afford or was this it. Also are you sort of putting a bet on this neighborhood is kind of being sort of a new. I you know up and coming place in. Detroit is definitely a combination of a few things you know when we first started talking about bree we were living in town and we were looking at Cork town. And we've got priced out of there pretty quickly and honestly it was. It was about opening a brewery for us but it was also about being in Detroit so we didn't limit our search to any specific area of Detroit. We sort of just like went where there is opportunity do you. We looked at properties kind of all over the place in our opinion breeze have unique ability to drop people off the beaten path because people seek out burris agrees to visit So we didn't feel much pressure to be an corridor that are developed or already had foot traffic or something like that so part of that Also stemmed from not being wealthy people. You know like we had a budget you know that we really needed to stick to so you know we needed to find something. That was doable for us us. it was very important for you to maintain ownership fully. So we don't have any partners is just us which is kind of wild that we were able to pull that off honestly Knowing all that we know and you were saying your husband. Paul has a nine to five job during the days. Obviously Right Act in. He's going to hang onto that job as long as he can cause We definitely need it. Being grand tells a little bit about Your Beers you're kind of leading with a Belgian style. We've always. He's Love Belgians said before there were there wasn't a very in the city doing Belgians There are a couple of really good ones in the state We used to frequent bass past donen royal oak when it was around and obviously bereaved avant. Yeah we were interested and bringing that Palate to Detroit and kind of having a location location. That was making beer that we like to drink so I think that's a lot of times with entrepreneurs like there's something missing where you are at where you want to be and you gotta fill that void so we're gonNA always try to have at least half if not more over our menu Be Belgians so right. Now we have ten beers we open seven. Five of them are Belgian so we have a German style English island three American Style Beers. And we're just GONNA keep growing from there. The feedbacks been really amazing. So far so people people have been Pretty much all positive reviews which pretty awesome. Yeah I saw that. You've been open long enough to get some yelp and untapped reviews and everything. What's your capacity here like for production So we ended up buying used equipment. It actually came from Livonia. It was Liberty Street brewings production facility business or no they own a brew pub implement and that's their primary business. They'd open in the production facility to manage fulfill their distribution contracts basically and that was the side of the business that they were no longer enjoying when we met them and they just essentially wanted to offload that piece of the business so I was sort of a right place right time because we were looking for equipment. That was the same sizes is what they were trying to sell. So it's just a matter of running into the right person and making a couple of phone calls in it somehow worked out which was really good because it saved us a nice chunk to get going but It's fifteen barrel system with thirty barrel fermenters so so far are average batch sizes men ten to fifteen miles and so we're not feeling the fermenters paramenters yet because we wanted to open with a lot of styles and not just you know make a ton of one beer we are planning on self distributing as long as we can because that's easiest thing to do right now The way the laws are but you. You have to be under a certain like barrels per year to be able to do that. So we're going to Get into that shortly but but hopefully get some kegs around and see what happens. Suny Ray you're saying That right now. You're strictly on premise sales right. But you're looking to expand that a little a bit in the near term correct so right now we're just selling beer in the tasting room either by the half or full poor and We just added on sixteen ounce canning candy so we can do to go cans four packs or singles of any of the beers we offer. We have done a couple kegs out to events things like that but we would like to start getting getting a couple of contracts around town. We have some interest at certain bars in doing it on ourselves. We can be really picky and who gets to beer. We WanNa make sure it's someone who cleans their beer lines lines and treats puree of it's nice to be small because you can control you know. Basically everything ultimately is your goal though to to you know a pair with a distributor when when you get big enough and celliers around the state or not necessarily not necessarily that model is sort of really difficult right. Now there's been a lot of news news stories recently about closures and big established brands having issues with that and I believe a lot of that is due to the distribution laws in Michigan. Other states states are different and harassing much faster and better growth than we are here so I think that's a lot to do with it recently. Easter market brewing did that campaign to partitioned to try to raise the self distribution. And there's a reason they were doing that. The state of Ohio is limit is way higher than are in there doing great down there. So we're like the lowest list cap on distribution of any you know midwestern state that's definitely had an effect on on us. And you know really you're always gonNA make the most money on the beer direct to consumer out of your tasting room so it was very important for us to create a really cool space set. People WanNa hang out him so we spent a lot of time and energy energy focusing on making the taproom cool you know like we we want to be here so we think people will do. That's definitely focused right now and everything else is like added on basically. What kinds of things are you doing to get people in the door? I know you. You don't do food here but I think you're inviting food trucks like at least on the weekends and things like that right. Yes certainly. There is actually several burris air. Now that do food trucks so it's a little easier now than it used to be. It's becoming more commonplace so we are getting on a couple of rotations for the really popular runs and we're starting out trying to get everyone basically Friday and Saturdays. 'cause that's our busiest night. You know we want food truck. You make money do so we're trying to you know Make everybody happy We also really want to focus and partner with other small businesses in the city that are trying to get started last weekend. We have coriander kitchen here ear and they're trying to open a restaurant in an old marina on the east side or at the corner of the river. Alter yeah I mean anyway we can help all right very cool and we should. We should talk a little bit about the interior and sort of set the scene for our listeners. You've got a nice checkmark shaped bar. I guess for lack of a better way to describe the shape hot hockey stick. Yeah that's good. I like that. Okay I read that the furniture here. These are often reclaimed wood. From what I understand. Yes yeah so our good friends Clear and Wayne who ran. Mutual adoration and Post Detroit they had the opportunity to reclaim would from the Packard plant and designed signs some beautiful tables for us and they're just gorgeous and then the chairs that we have are real vintage sixties and Ebay. Find of Paul's. So we love those two. And then the Bar Concrete Barshop that Paul and I and I have some friends poured ourselves and we tiled everything so anywhere that we could you know. Put our own sweat equity into this business. We did that and we're really happy with how turned out. It's going to be really nice. I don't know if you had any oppurtunity. Having opened in October two to use the patio. But that's going to certainly add a new element when the weather turns right definitely will and we just have a guy that started a mural outside to have some kind of eye-popping color when you turn up from Latvia to the block which is nice because we don't have much visibility yet. We just have like a little sandwich. Birdsong we pull up front And it's like I said before it's a destination like it's not too hard now because everyone has. GPS on their phone. They can figure it out but Definitely get some funny joke from people who get dropped off by lift or Uber. And they're like. Where are you taking me as well? I think you're going there It was really important for us to kind of open up the space as it was a pretty dark. And you know damp warehouse and we OUGHTA and we figured if we put the glass roll up door that'd be a great way to bring late in and also visibility actually right when we put that on. We started meeting all of our neighbors. Or like what's going on here and people drive through here as think it's really quiet but a lot of these buildings have active businesses inside. Even though you can't really tell from the outside and on top of that you've got you know lots of Residential Jefferson as well as were in proximity to Lafayette Park and West village and there are a lot of people living in i-love-you still So they've been kinda stopping in and and telling us how excited I didn't have a a neighborhood bar finally 'cause it hasn't really been much over here for quite a while. Every neighborhood needs a good bar. That's for sure which brings us to maybe the most important thing which is the beard. That's why people are coming here right. So you've generously poured a selection of your offerings. What should we start with here so I Ford just to start us off my five Belgians which are a wit beer a bell go palay call it? And then I've got a double a triple and a Raspberry Cezanne or so I'm GonNa Start with the lightest color here and this is which one no quantity wit beer and so with meaning wheat beer. Yes as this up we base and then we did coriander and orange peel which is a lot of people really like it. But there's always like that one person it's like this is now that I think of what I like coriander and get definitely get the orange in there for sure it's It's very smooth. Very smooth what I got going on here now the SANILAC which is our Belbow pail. So it's GonNa be a little sweet up front will multi in the middle and a little happy in the Finnish and Sanlakas in like the name of the town Michigan correct correct so our our beer names are kind of all over the place and they're definitely they have meaning to pollinate but Sanlakas location of a family cottage. Alright bottoms up skull. Nice The you're right very subtle on the hops. A lot of Belgian pails that I've tried are a little bit more aggressively hoppy but this is nice. It's it's good a little bit of Funky news from the Belgian yeast. And that's what I think always sets apart Belgian beers. You've got all those week esters you from specifically from using Belgian use that that mix interestingly when especially when you apply it to like a something as simple as a Pale rescue. It strikes me as a really nicely balanced spirits. Really good okay. So the next time you have the double and this one is definitely a very popular with Belgian fans but a lot of people who come in here and say. I've never liked a Belgian login beer before but I tried your double and I love that beer. It's so I think it's kind of approachable. That way doubles traditionally like a little darker a little multi a little sweeter. So I think it's a crowd-pleaser for sure multi. It's good like it comes in at about seven point. One percent callsas a little higher alcohol. But it doesn't have that alcohol alcohol flavor that you get sometimes with higher Ab. So I definitely get the caramel apples in this one yum. This is a tough job. Probably be hard to believe but we had a lot of volunteers as we were building out the space for beer tasting. Is the number one request. Do Respite while you're developing your recipes. Now these backups or triple. This one's called false dawn cracking eight eight and a half percent It is the traditional triple style. So it's golden it's thick strong it's Ours is a definitely a lighter in color and body body then like some of the other triples that are prolific in the area It's more to style for what we would look for in a triple for our personal taste. definitely play like bump up the carbonation level a little bit of that style as well so I get like an aroma. This may sound crazy but of like smoked meats like almost like a barbecue grill or something. I love love this because my bartender last night told me. She smelled olives and I smell riding on. Yeah but I smell like pineapple just so all over the place. Yeah but everybody brings something new to it. But that's the thing about beer is very subjective but the thing about Belgian yeast and Belgian beers particularly they offer really complex noses then flavor so I think whatever your palate is what you're going to pick up the most that's a nice chewy beer good earnings and then finally for our last Belgian. This is number five. We have the periphery. which is I- Raspberry Cezanne coming? In at seven point three percent alcohol so traditional sesana recipe and we Dumped Raspberry into it and it fully attenuated down to almost zero so it has very little residual sugar and sweetness. So it's a super dry for beer which I think is pretty rare. Yeah you might expect it to be sweet. But it's not at all people tend to say like it smells like it's going to be sweet because they smell l. the raspberry but then when you taste it that sugar is not there so let's be nice like warm weather quaffing mirror one. It's a hot summer day out and are these most so this is gonna be like year round. Are you going to be kind of rotating in and out and try new things. What's the plan there? We don't really have a plan because I think it's counterintuitive a two-day to start out with the flagship beer and tell people what your bestseller is. I think you kind of have to let your customers. Decide what they like you know. We've got obviously software to track. What sells the best So far spend that Raspberry Sesana pre and then our coffee stout which it is stout season we opened right when the weather turned cold. So it kind. That makes sense that one selling really well. We did a steep ten pounds of ash coffee supply beans and like we're sampling it You know every couple of hours like levels and we ended up deciding at ten thirty PM that it was ready for a keg so we actually pulled an all nighter to kick that beer. So I'm very relieved. I believe that it's selling well because it was. It was a labor of love to make a Fisher all right so last one. I'M GONNA try. Is your coffee stout excited to try this. One definitely smell the coffee beans from the glass. It's really nice really roasted chocolate. Less nice I mean being a coffee fi lover like and a beer lover like what's not to love about that one that's good clocks five point one percent to so it's a little more sessional for folks that want a few beers all right. Well thanks so much for all the tastings would times. Are you guys open. I mean what. Where can people find? More information We were getting ready to open the brewery.

Where her parents were found murdered thirteen year old resurface in a rural community about seventy miles from where she was last seen. Jamie is the hero in this case. There's no question about it. Investigators say Jamie, escaped her alleged captor on her own running from a house in Gordon Wisconsin into the arms of genie nutter, a former social worker who was out walking her dog. Saw a young woman approach me. She was crying and said I need help. I don't know where I am. I'm lost. Please. Help me new something was wrong. Right. And I I knew she was scared. And I knew she had wherever she came from she left quickly because she didn't have she had somebody else's shoes on that were too big for her. She was just wearing like black sweats or leggings in a baggy sweatshirt as I got closer to her. She just kinda grabbed onto because it's really I see. And she said, I'm Jamie when nutter asked the frightened teen where she was coming from Jamie pointed at the house across the street and say where were you, and she showed me, and I said is he home and she said, no he took off. His car. I kept telling Jamie, don't worry. Everything's gonna be. Okay. Warming to put some distance between them and her captors house. Nutter brought Kloss down the road to the home of Peter and Kristen Kosinski us immediate effort month. I thought she's not alive. I mean, no way she lied. But to see your walk into my kitchen. It was. Like seeing a ghost for real. It was it was I mean, it took my breath away. You know, I'm still it's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around incredibly Jamie was able to give the name and description of the man who she says kidnapped her even going so far as to provide police with a vehicle description that led directly to her alleged captors arrest. One of my patrol sergeants happen to find a vehicle that matched the description that Jamie gave my deputies of the suspect and pulled the vehicle over and took the suspect in custody at that time the suspect a twenty one year old Jay Thomas Paterson, previously, unknown to local law enforcement now expected to be charged with two kinds of homicide and one count of kidnapping in cases. Like this. We often need a big break. And it was Jamie herself who came us that break. Jamie's harrowing ordeal began last October breaking headline tonight a nationwide. Search now for missing thirteen year old girl mysterious nine one one call made in the middle of the. Night up to the Kloss home in Barron. Wisconsin can you walk us through that nine one one call why it was unusual the nine one one call was given that night from the residents on a cell phone. But no contact was made with somebody that was on the other line. There was no one communicating with our dispatcher police arrived within minutes of the call. Jamie's dad James was shot and laid dying. Her mother Denise already dead. Neighbor said they'd heard gunshots. I heard one shot and the second shot was even loader yet with authorities phonebook casings, but no weapon and no, Jamie. We believe Jamie was in the home at the time of the homicides. We believe she is still endanger an amber alert was issued nationwide and local authorities enlisted the FBI to help them our goal to bring Jamie home. That's our only goal. Jamie's family devastated and desperate to find. Her Jamie is the sweetest little girl. She wanted her to Seoul, thousands of tips. Poured in from across the country or looking for cellphones, guns, clothes, etc. While thousands of volunteers hope comb the rural countryside searching for signs of the teenager. Can and hope in the family anyway, we can a sheriff. Do you think Jamie still alive? Yeah. I do. I think there's a lot of hope hope but still no, Jamie. A reward was offered. So please. If you have information we want to hear from you months past snow piled up at the ones, happy, close family home, the investigation ongoing, but the national spotlight fading. During the holidays. Jamie's hometown held a tree lighting ceremony reminding people not to forget about the teen. Our families. Like, you this haunt Jamie home, and we pray every day. Thank you for being here this afternoon, then the announcement out of the blue everyone had been hoping for last night. Our collective promise was fulfilled. What Jamie safe recovery? Thank you to all. She was recognized immediately because of the work that we did the public did in the media. Did everybody's been really palm holding hope? That's just wonderful newes. Glad she's going to have a loving community to come home to. And they'll be plenty of help. Authorities have yet to explain how exactly Jamie escaped her captor. But that he wasn't at home. At the time. We believe that the suspect was out looking for her when law enforcement made contact with authorities say there was no social media contact between Jamie and Patterson who had no criminal record and his unemployed. But that he specifically targeted the young girl. Nothing in this case shows. The suspect knew anyone at the costs home. The suspect had specific intentions to kidnap Jamie and went to great lengths to prepare to take her things. Like not leaving trace evidence by changing his physical appearance like shaving his head not to leave hair behind authorities. Also recovered a shotgun that they say is consistent with what was used to kill Jamie's. Parents Jamie is talking and communicating with law enforcement, she's doing as well as circumstances allow her road to recovery could be a long one it's not a surprise to any healthcare professional that this child will have lasting consequences to what she lived through that doesn't mean that she won't be happy and functional and successful in her life. Elizabeth smart who also escaped after being kidnapped for nine months. Call Jamie's recovery a miracle writing an Instagram posts that no matter what. May unfold in her story tall tried to remember that this young woman has survived and whatever other details may surface. The most important will still remain that she is alive. It's really important to draw a line in the sand and really respect her privacy because she's going through a really acute trauma. Even though this is a national story. This is not a pop culture event. This is a child's life. Meanwhile, Jaime's family is excited to just hold a team. They thought they might have lost forever. It's going to tell her how much however, Mr. and give her the biggest hug ever. Yeah. And that we're all here for in Barron, Wisconsin, I'm Alex Perez for Nightline. Our thanks to Alex next dirty.

What do you think that when people hear your story and think how did you let this happen? I tell them you weren't in my shoes. Millions listen to the wildly popular Los Angeles Times in one day podcast. Is there something about John's past he's trying to hide which was then adapted into a hint scripted Bravo show, starring Connie Britton, and Eric Bana? This happen. And now a new documentary from oxygen? In two thousand fourteen Deborah had a successful interior design business, beautiful children and everything that money could buy here on the coast of Orange County, California. I decided that I had it all except love. That's search for a soul mate brought her online where she met the man who would forever change her and her children's lives. He said everything bride. I liked what he had on his profile. He had his daughters. He had animals that he was a anesthesiologist though. Then fifty nine year old went on her first date with the tall. Good looking self self-proclaimed, doctor at this Houston's restaurant. John started calling every day, and we would meet after work, and he started saying he was in love with me. I was the soul mate. He's been waiting for me. I ate it up. Even though Deborah only known him for two months. She agreed to marry him while on a trip to Las Vegas. John seemed like the man of her dreams, what kinds of things would he do? Everything we would take walks at the end of the day. And he wanted to hear all about my day. He would make me breakfast. He would take my dry cleaning in take my mail to the mailbox see thought. I've got the perfect husband. I thought so. These soon moved into this waterfront home on ritzy belbow island. She paid for everything. Overlooking red flag after red flag. Her children picked up on from the beginning. What kinds of things were your kids pointing out to you. The one thing that they noticed is. He didn't have a car. And so he was driving one of my cars, but he told me his car when he was in Iraq, his things got stolen, but John story about serving with Doctors Without Borders in Iraq was just one fictional tale in a web of deceit he'd woven. I mean almost everything he told me was ally. He told me he was an easy Allah gist. He was not a anesthesiologist. He said he had one sister. And she was dead has to alive sisters, everything was there was no reason for a lot of the the lies. I didn't understand John would isolate Debre from her family in an. Effort to control every aspect of her life and wealth everything came to a head. John does not who I married whatsoever. It was his true nature. Something his first wife of almost ten years. Tanya is all too familiar with sharing in the documentary? How she learned that he was a liar and a drug addict, I found on the very top shelf pushed all the way to the back a box of anesthesia drugs fat now. And I said after the couple split John made violent threats heard here in these recorded phone calls. Joy your time left on this earth. Okay. Because that's what it's gonna come down to Tanya and her daughter spent years fearing for their lives. I always thought that like he was going to try to like come and get us just to get back at my mom, and I got scared someone that he is latched onto his never free of him. Detective Julia Bowman says she's learned of at least fifty victims since first investigating extortion and stocking accusations made against John in two thousand thirteen arresting him after finding cyanide capsules zip ties duct tape a gun and ammo he'd stashed if we had not arrested, and that something horrible would have happened or victim. John was released from prison in October of two thousand fourteen two days later, he met Deborah and zeroed in at what point did you start to realize something might be off here until we're married. It would take her more than a year to realize the full scope of John's vicious duplicity. She finally walked away for good the scene playing out word for word in the Bravo show. I said, I leave you. I want a divorce Jeter went into hiding for months still he stalked her finding her car and setting it on fire. It was clear that this guy was really dangerous. Did you ever think that he would go after your children? I never thought he'd go after my children. What did he have to gain? But that's exactly what he did John's reign of terror finally came to an unlikely end when he attacked Denver's youngest daughter Tara outside of her apartment building. And she fought back stabbing him to death in self defense for me, it was just surreal. Here's your daughter, the fought for her life against someone that you thought was the love of your life. Now more than a year later Tara is recovering from the trauma and Deborah is reflecting on her family's nightmare. And what are the lessons that you learned through all of this that you hope that other women can learn from you to the background really try to figure out who this person is made their friends never allow them to come to your home until you really know who they are take your time.

"Yeah. Hello listeners. This is labor. Now you're aids podcast. I'm your host, Dave. Good evening. This is James, the polygon tunnel, the national vice president of an actual Justice curi- nationals, where members come first. Contact information can be found in the show notes, including our toll free number which is one eight five five six five, eight six one zero please check out life on record, a gift of recorded messages for any special occasion to load one. She are shown for details. What would play out as a painful community. Melodrama pitting vaber against neighbor. One would become a priced exceptional victory, all were significant in revealing Labor's disorientation before, large belbow market forces. What was remarkable? However, was that they gave evidence of a pulse, a sigh, that at some element who level labor retained its healthy insurgent, art and a capacity for sacrifice and principal or mouth foods famous for its spam. Wrangler sausages, indentity Moore beef stew, was one of the country's best noon manufacturer of supermarket can meet its plant in the small Minnesota city of us started as a family business in nineteen eighty one had by nineteen Eighty-four come to play sixteen hundred men and women other her male sputtering in manufacturing facilities opened. Elsewhere in the upper midwest. The firm built a new one hundred million factory in Austin in the early nineteen eighties, which operating at folk pass these latter two million hugs each year, and produced or hundred forty cans of spam per minute, by nineteen eighty five Hermel provided a livelihood directly or indirectly for a quarter of towns, twenty three thousand inhabitant, the founder George a Hormel, and his son Jay had worked to make the company, a trustee community institution. It was a source of pride that the company's workers or men executives and their family set side by side at church, suppers, and PTA meetings watch their sons play little league baseball together and exchange. Greetings, at the gas pump workers noticed a change in the feel of the company after opening the new plant a corporate of professional leadership filled the top positions, and stricter worker, environment took whole with Reiter demands on efficiency. And production the company began paying more attention to the bottom line in nineteen eighty-five now it would seek concessions from the Austin-based local PVA of the United food and commercial workers UFC w by reduction of the average wage of a plant from ten dollars and sixteen cents per hour down to eight dollars and twenty five cents management claimed it was necessary to stay competitive with other regional meat packing plants that were nine union and pay their employees as Lula six dollars an hour, local p nine was not happy as it was rumored that Hormel prophets were still solid the talks between her male and the UFC w nationally spelled B local hired a controversial New York labor consultant Ray Rogers who was known to play by his own rules. He urged a strategy Colby, corporate campaign, which was designed to either employers by exposing their corporate profile things such s. Air finances, and anything potentially humiliating about their partnership. Investments are stockholders in nineteen sixty nine the United mine, workers leader Joseph, jock Jablonski, his wife and daughter were murdered on the orders of minors. President Anthony puff Tony Boyle Rogers had helped union reformer Arnold Miller and others within the MW w to expel oil, who with three other men went to prison for their part in the crime. He was also in the JP and Stevens company of North Carolina. Textile workers campaign that was made famous by the popular nineteen Seventy-nine Hollywood fill normal race during Sally field the Hormel issue, turn bed as neighbors cited with neighbor against neighbor, part of the influence of Rogers ecit. It drew media attention. The national warrant the local it might resist its members out of a job prayed. The media attention might make them lose sight of the goal. Oh, it did not appear. So when Hormel offer to a smaller wage reduction to tillers per hour and offer many outsiders, felt was reasonable refusing the national UFC w advice local members rejected the offer by vote of seven hundred seventy five to five hundred forty after the strike began on August. Seventeenth nineteen eighty five management kept the plant running at minimum production levels through the fall, using supervisory staff in January nineteen eighty six Hermel announced it would reopen at four production offering any returning in place, two dollars an hour and new hires eight dollars an hour. This created friction among the town's resident somewhere extremely loyal to the local well, large number were eager for work about two thousand men and women applied for the eight dollars an hour job at the gates, infuriated, strikers challenged their replacement workers, many whom they recognized as friends, neighbors, and even relative. If. Eventually the strikers blocked the gates with their cars, forcing Hormel to shutdown and leading, Minnesota, governor really her PECH to dispatch. The national guard, the strikers intensified their opposition exhibiting, a degree of militancy reminiscent of the United Auto Workers of nineteen thirty seven they had organized food drives pulled, childcare duties, shared meals, and even the free exchange of services. Some saying the locals physician was hopeless and return to work, those remaining Lael still wondered if it was since about to keep striking. If it was unwinnable, the Austin city council weighed in arguing p nine to end the strike before the town is destroyed Rogers and the local receive support from many activists including Jesse Jackson, the mainstream labour movement concurred with the UFC w that continues strike would be mistake, pe- nine began demonstration's, and encouraging worker stoppages at. Other for mail facilities in the midwest and Rogers had demonstrations in Austin, I Bank, which he had decided was real power structure, behind Hermel urging workers to closer account, you FCW president William win. Meanwhile, advice, his union workers at Hermel across the country to become innocent, victims of local P nines, extremist actions, the relationship between the Austin local, and it's national may came so strain, it began to appear the UFC w likely shared home ELS interest in crushing the strike, or mouth filed charges against p nine with the NFL RB and obtained an injunction against picketing outside the Austin plant it was an alleged violation of this injection that lead to the arrest of twenty seven individuals, including Ray Rogers, the UFC w its own credibility on the line, eventually place local p ninety into. Receivership and ceased making straight payments of between forty dollars to sixty five dollars per week to each worker, now at least four in charge of the low Hoyt gave one final directive to p nine to suspend the strike, which was ignored at which point the UFC w fired both guy and Rogers the strike fishery ended with the remaining nine hundred strikers out of their jobs, their positions, having been filled by replacements. Caterpillar, located in Peoria, Illinois was the largest manufacturer of construction equipment their arrival in nineteen fifty was a boom, economically to the area in the late nineteen eighties. Their profits were in decline. And by nineteen ninety one it had sliced its workforce, leaving only twelve thousand workers down for twenty thousand in nineteen eighty in nineteen ninety Don fits, a veteran salesman became the CEO bit at SP. Many years selling for Caterpillar in Japan and his global perspective and experience for expected to be key s in keeping the firm in the race with combat sue a Japanese competitor in nineteen Ninety-one bayside out a new contract with its workers who were represented by United Auto Workers companies sought to stop paying guards and janitors. The seventy dollars an hour wage. Paid more skilled workers. It also site out a lower pay here of eight fifty an hour for new hires the new contract covered a longer term of existence with no pay creased, few unskilled, workers, only cost of living adjustments and bell to renew. Again, she the company had with the United Auto Workers to keep a minimum number of workers on salary goose was a departure from the traditional negotiation form that the UAW preferred called powdered bargaining a. Union immolates a contract by workers at a similar enterprise, in this case, veering company, another large mid western farm, implement manufacturer pattern. Bargaining is an outdated concept that makes no sense. In a global economy said, Gerald d a Caterpillar, VIP. We need an agreement that makes sense for our employees and enables Caterpillar to continue, providing high-quality jobs here in the United States. We also need an agreement that will allow us to sell products against nine United States Petters around the world, but the UAW's wanted to keep patent burying as a favored method for upcoming Gauchet shifts with the big three automakers which employed for hundred thousand United Auto Workers members the talks as could be expected went nowhere when you AWS members walked off at some Caterpillar planets the firm blocked out employees. At several others efforts to restart negotiations failed, and in April nineteen Ninety-two the company told members they had a week to return to work are lose their jobs, as it had already began to advertise for new hires. This threat was more serious at cow pillar than at other places. Many Caterpillar workers were in their forties. In their chances of finding compare employment and depressed economy were slip. This also meant that the company would have no problem finding people eager to apply for any replacement jobs. The UAW seeing no movement towards negotiation ended the strike in some ways this action was worse than the Reagan Petco a decade earlier. Caterpillar was a regional employer. With deep roots in the community at it was disturbing about its willingness to use scabs to oust the UAW president, Owen Bieber, be crying. The idea that Caterpillar had no. Choice in the matter. I'm getting a little sick of hearing, the word global Bieber was correct, that have Hiller saw the use of replacements less s a temporary fix in more as part of a long-term adoption that year. The company had joined two hundred other companies to create the alliance to keep Americans working who's, I order a business was to defeat a Bill, working its way through congress that would reverse the NL are bees ruling on harder equipment and banned the use of replacement workers in a lockout this nineteen eighty six ruling allowed and employer to lockout strikers and hire replacements in order to keep their business running, if there was no evidence of anti-union motivation, church, such a right given to him players, inherently fide workers since it rendered useless, the threat of a strike early and Bill Clinton's first term advocates of the Bill trade again Edward Kennedy. Told his colleagues that most industrialized countries did not allow the hiring a replacement workers at Representative major Owens of Brooklyn defended the Bill essential to ever because if you can be replaced, you don't have the right strike. The Bill passed in the house, but failed in the Senate, not getting past the Republicans, sixty vote filibuster in the spring of nineteen ninety two the United Auto Workers workers returned to work at Caterpillar, but they were disruptive doing work slowdowns. Ho the union meetings in company lunch rooms demonstrating outside caterpillars offices in wearing anti corporation, buttons, and t shirts. The company fought back with titan discipline and selected firings in November nineteen Ninety-three three day walkout was staged in June nineteen ninety four a major strike occurred. SE UAW had a. Asked a large strike fund. The cat was ready. The company arranged to stay Willie operational, using temporary employees the strike lingered half-heartedly for eighteen months. UAW members cross picket lines and return to were are quit the union entirely by December nineteen ninety five the U A W had no option but to admit defeat in nineteen ninety eight the labor movement, regained some ground got a much-needed moral boost as the results of a nineteen ninety seven Teamsters strike at United Parcel, service's, UPS. The victory was not so braided because it triumphed over a belly behaving corporation, UPS had a reputation for good relations with labor, but because the union won over the issue of contingent or two tier of placement. The employer cuts costs relying on temporary and part-time employee's you. PS was also attempting to change the structure of the employees pension plan. But staging a strike for eating reason head become a risky strategy in rare work, stoppages declined in America from three thousand one hundred eleven in nineteen seventy seven to only three hundred eighty five by nineteen ninety five even as wages last fifty percent of their value based in Atlanta. UPS was mations largest shipping company with three hundred and two thousand American employees at few thousand four hundred sites. Annual earnings of one point one billion as many as eighty percent of the company's new hires were part time, which allowed UPS to deny them all benefits and pay them nine dollars an hour in contrast to the twenty dollars paid full timers UPS said it head to stay competitive Federal Express, at a lower paid workforce union. Except for its pilots, but also because the work day schedule was sporadic with intense, periods of loading and sorting followed by laws in which few if any workers were needed, but the Teamsters countered with the fact that workers were kept at part time for years without promotion. And that as many as ten thousand part-timers actually worked fulltime hours, but receives the lower part time rate UPS offer to move eight hundred part time workers to full time over four years, the union countered with all temp house in four years. No deal was reached, and the union strike on August fourth, but chief house pilots of UPS agreed to honor the strike in one hundred eighty five thousand Teamsters walked off the job. The company went to the media with a scandal involving Teamster president, Ron Carey who face charges that he had illegally used union funds. Campaign contributions it his recent their election over James hopper junior poll showed the public support, the strikers by margin of fifty five percents to twenty seven percent, and that people saw downsizing and contingent employee's as a nationwide problem by nineteen ninety seven contingent work have become so ambiguous, virtually everyone knew a friend, or family member trapped in the two tier system as temporary or part-time worke, working at reduced pay with marginal perks in non existent, health coverage, the level of public empathy for the PS walkup became news in the nineteen. Eighty-one Paco strike fifty one percent of Americans had backed President Reagan and only forty percent of the traffic controllers. There was also by nineteen ninety seven a strong perception that management is less fair and less loyal to. Workers than it used to be the PS workers. Benefited for the solidarity shown, by the company's pilots and the Teamsters had the support of the labor movement, which perceived the strike as an important test of whether to tear, downsizing could be curbed, the F L. She I even came forward to offer. Sources for the Teamsters strike fund such cooperation was a reflection of shake-up at the F L C, I O in nineteen ninety five the first major reorientation of the fourteen million member organization since its creation, forty years earlier, the Teamsters called on their friends around the world. UPS was dominant in the shipping industry in America. It was still in an expansion mood in Europe. So as union and UPS, Representative said across the bargaining table from each other in America, the European Union's, as part. Part of what was called UPS world action day. Stay brief demonstrations, our work stoppages, UPS understood that failure to resolve the Teamsters strike on terms acceptable to workers might bring global consequences with force is a big labor public opinions and coordinated sympathy strikes breaking out as far way as Orly airport.

Episode43 - Talking 'Bout Praying...

"Well hello there. My name is john birt and this is my podcast the burt not ernie show where we talk about. God's promises and the hope. Those promises bring our everyday lives. Whenever i meet somebody new. I introduced myself as jan. Burt and say like burden ernie. Since it's easy to confuse my last name with different one and almost always people smile when they think of and ernie that got me thinking. I'm the bird. And i'm not in ernie. But how often do we live. If we're someone. God never meant for us to be part of knowing who you are is knowing. You're not tense. The name burt. Not ernie show. I'm so glad you're here. Let's dig into god's promises psalm. One hundred two verses one to hear my prayer award and let my cry for help come to you. Do not hide your face for me in the day when i call answer me quickly. Well hey i usually say hey there hello. Welcome to the podcast. Before i start reading from the word of god but today for episode forty three of the bert not ernie show. God's word came right away. I'm gonna hit you with a fastball. A heart question. Not a hard not h. a. r. d. question a heart question right off the bat right from the get go. How do you pray now. I don't mean when you run through your prayer list in like four minutes flat. You know like i can run a mile in you know. I could run through my prayer list. Four minutes flat or not. Like when you pray that verbatim kind of easy peasy lemon squeezy prayer right before you like snarf down your dinner when you really lean in and engage in praying like from your heart you know with some with some loop. There's passion intensity it's from your guts kind of like how do you pray then. Yep yep today talking about prayer. It's it's big. It's big big subject matter and because it's so big sometimes we don't really talk about it. Sometimes it's not covered in depth. Now there are a ton of books about it. And i'm not saying i've got anything new for you on prayer. I probably don't but i know sometimes You know we leave that up to the theologians or The we call them our prayer warriors and her churches. You know in the local body. You've got the prayer water. Warriors the intercessor. There's a prayer group or something or somebody who writes out their prayers in journal You know like abeline in the helps you right at her prayers. Which i i love that. If you don't write your prayers. I'm telling ya. Yeah right your prayers. It's something amazing. Happens when you can look back and see how got answered and sometimes you you just pray better when right him out like you pray at more length. If that makes sense of you don't journal. I'm just to you know. This is a out to the journalists to the prayer journalist. Yes go you and those of you haven't tried it yet. Give it a shot. You might really love it okay. A bit sometimes we leave it to those we think of as the quote unquote experts and we just kind of do our basic sort of praying like a prey for your job for your health or your immediate family for those needs at you. Know about in your church may before some lost family members or there's some tragedy on the other side of the world or whatever right but mostly you just don't really pray big and bold because it's it feels so big and so that's part of the reason why it isn't talked about maybe even by the average lower person which is what most of us are. We just don't really talk about it. We really don't. It just feels too big. I mean so what happens if you know your your encouraging somebody to really pray to dig in in just bold belief to pray those big bold prayers and they do and then god doesn't move on their behalf. you know. The thing doesn't happen that you really were so excited to encourage them to pray about and it's feels like crickets you know you know. They're just they're those. What ifs that people have for. Good reason for good reason bumped up into a lot of the time people slow down or pull back on their big bold prayers because they've had hard issues and the prayers don't seem to have been answered right. i mean. I'm just being brutally honest. Sometimes i feel like on the show. I'm over the top honest. And if this is if i hope i hope it doesn't ever come across as negative because i'm telling you I'm not negative. About god's word god's promises i'm really not but i also want to be honest in. Never seem like a. Have some platitudes. Or i'm talking down to anybody. I am not. Maybe i get it. I know how hard it is when you have prayed and prayed and prayed and nothing. Nothing and you were. Nobody could convince you that you weren't praying in the centre of god's will or that you didn't have enough faith. You know what i mean. Let's just be honest. Raise your hand you know. Raise your hand even you way in the back. Raise your hand. If that's been you or you know somebody that's happened to and it makes prayer feel Scary risky hard get uncertain. And so you just backpedaled a little bit right. You don't stop praying. He just not. Praying is big and bold. Look none of us. Wants to be the source of pain. I don't want to say to somebody. Go pray about this. I know god's enter like xyz and that not happened. That's that feels like i'm causing pain. I don't speak wrongly. On the lord's behalf and i don't think most people want to prayer is so important it's such a big deal. It's so important. what happens. What happens when we get it wrong if we get it wrong. What happens if we didn't get it wrong in what we spoke over somebody or the way that we prayed but the result is like i don't i don't what what's going on here so confused. What happens if we lead somebody to a bad result. So there's all of this kind of pressure surrounding prayer. We've all dealt with it. If somebody says. I've never dealt with that i can't have. Can i check your pulse real quick. 'cause like man. Our faith is pulled and stretched and challenged when we prayed big bold brave prayers just like every brave thing will ever do cameras say that again when we pray big and bold and brave prayers. Our faith is going to be pulled and stretched Challenge right that polling stretching. That growing happens anytime we do something brave anytime. We do something brave if you're training for a marathon. Guess what you're gonna have some pain along the way if you are in medical school you are going to have some pain along the way. I don't care what it is. You're gonna have some pain along the way right. But the bravest things bring us to those places where we have to be big bold brave so why would prayer be any different in a lot of ways. It's the most powerful thing that we can partake in while we're on this planet it causes kinda like spiritual growing pains right and nobody automatically loves pain if you do. I can't relate. I mean i. It's not natural to just love love. Love the painful stuff. It's just not so. I'm going to read those verses again. Psalm one hundred verse and two from the amplified so let me read them real quick. Now just listened this time when i read them. All you have to do is listen a little more closely than you did before you knew what i was even talking about here my prayer oh lord and let my cry for help come to you. Do not hide your face from me in the day when i call answer me quickly quickly i you know. I like that adverb. There quickly i love it. Don't we all want dancer quickly in the day when we call all right so we're starting by asking god just asking him to hear us right. That's the beginning of these two verses starting at the point of just asking him to hear us while we pray to let to allow our cry for help to come to him. Prayer originated with god not with mankind. Prayer originated with god. Mankind did not invent it this way of requesting what we need Interceding on behalf of others of close entrusting communication with god started with him. He is the initiator. It's not a human construct when maybe your on the struggle bus right and if you haven't been there Man i got a shake. Your hand beat you. Because hello i mean maybe i'll do it elbow you know. Maybe i won't shake your hand will belbow since it is. It is twenty twenty two not gonna shake hands anymore. But i'd love to meet you right. I'll do the raised eyebrows. Thing over my mask has whoa if you have never like men on the struggle. Best regarding prayer. That's awesome you. You probably have huge faith. I don't know. I mean. I've been on the struggle many times but when you're on that prayer struggle bus for any reason any reason i don't care what the reason is whatever reason you're struggling with set the reasons aside right now. It's really good to know and remember. That prayer has god's idea because sometimes when prayer gets hard we start to treat it like. It's our idea like it's our construct like we came up with this whole thing and we end up with a lot more responsibility on us then needs to be there because we're not the initiators of the creators so if i didn't create the thing i don't gotta the thing Get the right end result so to speak. I don't gotta keep the machine working that i didn't create you know right. I mean i was just told the push start button. That's how i gotta do if it if it's not working i gotta go find somebody else knows how to make it work i did. I was told to do. Okay so we are. We are told a lot of things we are to do. In the word of god about prayer. But it's what you to keep in mind that don't take on that burden of Somehow this is my responsibility. it started with him. You gotta sometimes slowdown remembered. This is god's idea in the first place. I can pray because it's god's idea in the first place i can come to him because he calls me to come to him. It's his idea in the first place. And so knowing remembering that it's it's his his his creation. It's his chosen way from me to communicate with him to seek him for my needs to intercede on behalf of others. I wanna remember that. When i come to him and i want to know that when i come to him in prayer that means it's good because every good imperfect gift comes down from the father right and there's no darkness in him. There's no darkness in him. That's from the book of james We know that when he created things in in genesis the very beginning of the bible. The genesis creation literally. He called it good. And so it's a good thing. There's a good thing because he created it. He created prayer and he created you. And it's a really great thing to go speak to him via the means that he wants you to speak to him. Prayer is a good thing. Prayers a good thing in your don in charge of the aspects of it that you're just flat not in charge of if we kind of follow the established protocol so to speak of Any given type of authority right. We've all the protocol of any authority unless they're like dark and nasty and cruel and wicked If you follow the protocol you get to the next level You take the next step forward. You end up with an audience with somebody right things. Advance and move forward and god is not cruel. God is not dark goddess. Not nasty got us. Not any of those thanks so He is turtle light. There's no darkness in him. So you've got an audience with him. You have an audience with him. Joan hide your face from him fair enough. Like don't hide your face from him. And pray like david when david said. Don't hide your face from me. Lord sometimes it feels like god's hiding his face from us when really. We are kind of hiding from him. And sometimes we're hiding from him in prayer just because they're been hard things that seem like they haven't been answered things. Have you know what i'm talking about. I don't even have to go to detail. You know what i mean and then david goes on to say in the day when i call answering me quickly and like i said before. I love that adverb here quickly. Because that's what we want. We want a quick answer to prayer. So yeah this is not. This is not somebody praying with leisure. And the british. Don't they say leisure they're not praying leisurely or lackadaisically. Nope no surrey. They are not. There is an urgency here. Look okay. I'm gonna say something. That feels a little bit Big and bold. And i hope you follow along. I think you will get my heart. There's there's an urgency here in these verses and this and there should be an urgency for us because like it or not the sands of time out right. Like here's the deal i have. I found this hourglass If ended at target. I bought it and i was like. Oh i love that thing. I'm totally going to. I'm gonna use that. Because sometimes sometimes i don't want to use my freedom app when i'm writing or working on something And i just. I just don't want to use it or like when i'm podcasting or something. I don't want anything that makes a lot of noise right so And my freedom app makes coffee shop. Sounds so sometimes. I just want to be able to use an era glass. I got this era glass. It's like i don't know twenty two minutes or something. I can't even really figure out how to make this work. This is a headache. So i returned it. I mean an hourglass. That doesn't drop the sand through for an hour is like it's broken. It's just it's poorly made. So i got one on of course online right online shopping and has cool beautiful blue or purple purple end in it so when i flipped that thing over i can look at it and i know at a glance about how long you've been working and anybody can pull away for an hour. You don't need your phone you don't need that. What if there's an emergency in my kid in college halfway across the country needs me. You're gonna be alright for an hour. There's another parent they can text. Whatever it's okay but manigat a lot more done when i have like the accountability of that sand falling through even more so than my freedom and glance over and see how long have i been writing along until the timer goes off. Bla-bla-bla no it's better. it's even better. It's just somehow this visual aid of it like dripping down through right guys. That's where we're at in history of time. Time is is closing shutting down right. I mean it's not Our days are not getting longer and longer and better and better. Things are winding down. So we gotta be praying. Like fixed in focused right. I see that sandra in and out. And i'm gonna work all the way to the last second the last little bit of sand because i set this time aside to really work on this task. Can we pray like that. Like i'm gonna pray right now like this is a big deal. I'm dialed in. It's important in this. Amana time is set aside to really pray. It's vital it's vital right now now now now because i cannot bank on praying better as in with more fervent as with more as in out on a limb faith. I can't bank on that next week next month next year. I can't that's not wise. That seems pretty foolish. And in the area of prayer. I do not think the lord wants us to be Lacking prudence so to speak right. He doesn't want us behaving foolishly. Not foolish for. I mean it's like the mister t Pity to fool. Let's just seriously not be pitiful in this arena. Let's think about the sands of time running out. We need to be about the work of prayer and not just to be like wasting time in prayer or kind of praying or praying with our mind watering. we've got it wandering not watering. What's a watery mind. Maybe i have one right now. Like watery eyes kitty. Tell him having allergies and they're really. My eyes are watering. I'm talking about watering minds. That's crazy. I make up words every episode. Donate okay. it's good laugh at me. Laugh at me if you need a laugh today. Think about some of the distal ridiculous stuff. That comes out of my mouth okay. But we want. We don't want to be like kind of like a court. Jester messing around or trying to entertain with our prayers. Or let's just not let our minds wander or water. Let's get focused on praying. Well let's pray. Well okay. I am now going to look at psalm. One hundred forty two from of course the amplified. And i'm going to read it. It's not very long. It's about seven versus. I'm just going to go ahead and read these seven verses and while i read you listen and be thinking about. Just be thinking about prayer. While i read the hetero and my bible titles assam a prayer for help in trouble and it was written by david. It says i cry aloud with my voice to the lord. I make separation with my voice to the lord. I pour out my complaint before him. I declare my trouble before him when my spirit was overwhelmed and week within me i wrapped in darkness. You knew my path. In the way where i walk. They have hidden a trap for me. Look to the right. The point of attack in see for there is no one who has regard for me to act in my favor. Escape has failed me. And i have nowhere to run. No one cares about my life. I cried out to you lord. I said you are my refuge. My portion in the land of the living. Give attention to my cry for. I am brought very low. Rescue me from my persecutors for their stronger than i. Bring my soul out of prison. Adversity so that i may give thanks and praise your name. The righteous will surround me and triumph for. You will look after me okay. David's praying right. When he wrote this david was pray in all right. The prayer train of thought. I hope you were thinking about prayer. While i read though seven short versus this is an awesome example of bold prayer prayed in the right now. He was praying. In the moment it was honest it was real and it was raw but it was also full of he revered the lord and it was full of expectancy and belief david here totally trust in his god for the exact end result that he is asking for in spite of in spite of the crazy. Dark dreadful reality. That was all around him. It wasn't deniable the place he was living in west for real and the way was frank was also for real. He pours out his complaint before. God man i love that You know for us in our modern day. That's like that doesn't mean you. Just you pour out your complaint via text right Via social media before whoever poured it out before the lord he poured it out. We're not good at this. I'm not good at this and most likely you're not super good. This we pray we pray a little a little but we don't usually pray it out of us. We don't usually pray it out of us. We have to come back again and again and pray a little bit more a little bit more a little bit more but listen. If you don't pray something out of you you can have a good healthy hearty prayer session and you can make some progress. But if you don't pray it out of you pour it out before the lord get out. Pour it empty it right. Pour it out. What is what word picture does that bring to mind that jars empty. He poured it out. And you left it all there. You left it all their leave it all at the altar when you pour it out in prayer you can have those great prayer sessions but if you don't get it all out. Here's what i found. And i think as i say this you're gonna go. Oh yeah that's happened to me or i've seen that play out in other people's lives when you don't pour it out all the way you pray but there's some of it that's not gotten out of us it's still in there. It's like yeast. it's like yeast and it just grows bigger and bigger and we can keep going back and praying again and again. But it's like oh this sounds like a monkey on my back or something i can't i can't get over. This can't overcome this. We got to pour it out. We gotta pray it out otherwise it you can give up right and thank god. It's not listening. God's maybe this isn't an issue for him. Maybe that's just maybe i'm just on my own. You know what those things are not true. Sometimes we just have to pour it out. He's always listing. He loves us so much. Sometimes we just a pour it out. Okay so pour it out before the lord until you're empty of it poor that thing out before the lord until you are empty of it. This is a gift. This is a gift. Guys that only disciples of the lord have don't miss out on this. Don't miss out on this if you are not walking with jesus. This ain't your gift. This is a gift that we have. So why would we not totally take advantage of the unique gifts. That god has given us as a big deal. It's a privilege to be able to pour it out until you're empty of it and be blessed in that way. Pour it out all the way out before the lord your god if somebody now let's move onto some other parts of this this Amazing som- let's talk about other things. David talked about like the set. A trap thing is is set a trap for you somebody over there on your right you know david said i look to the right and i see them who set the trap. You thought maybe they were your right hand man ever been there like they got you. I got you. And then all of a sudden i got trapped for us what i got for you. Yeah you know what how pain you look. And there's that trap And they said it was set by your right hand man over there on your right. You know what take that. Get that port out to god all the way out all the way out Forgive him yup. Absolutely it's a great practice to You know it's in the lord's prayer and it's really important and for us to do daily. It's a great practice to discount. Just to say i forgive blau whenever i forgive him Man feels good. It's a great thing to forgive people and then to walk in knowing how forgiven you are by the lord. Forgive him forgiven but part of that. Sometimes it's just really porn at all out all the way out. Tell god how it feels like you know davidson. Nobody even cares about my life. You can say that to god you can say out loud so the devil all of his nasty devious little minions can hear you. You can say this and you should say this god you are are as in right now. You are my refuge. My safe place. You are my portion in the land of the living. Here that devil. God you are the authority over my life. They are not whoever set a trap for me even if they were my. Bff forty five years and now they burned me hard. You know what. They're not the authority of my life in porn that out to you. And i forgive him. In fact i'll go safaris to say lord. You bless him with mighty blessings. There's freedom and that i'm town you. This is one of those things chris. Jans can experience if there's something that only you can experience as a special child of a special King Why would you not experience and take advantage of it. We've got to be about this folks. You are a special child of the king of kings so grab a hold of this grab a hold of this and do it say this out loud. I am not kidding. God you are right now. My refuge my safe place. My portion in the land of the living you alone or the authority over my life nothing and no one else the gates of hell can't come against me and prevail. You know why because you got you got are the owner of my life declare out loud give. Thanks right just say when this thing turns around when you bring me deliverance. I'm telling you right now upfront. I'm declared lord. I'm a be giving you. Thanks like big big big thing and then start thanking him now before it even happens. Let's let's end this with these last few words of david from psalm. One forty two. It's the very last sentence of this psalm for you will. Now man. I got well double underlined. 'cause you know we'll means well and i got a really stressed that word because it's like the power of the word will in the word in god's promises it's amazing for you will look after me will will will will. He's gonna look after you he will. Won't he do it. yes he will start here in prayer. Start here in prayer. Do not abdicate. Your responsibility to pray. It's a gift. It's a privilege and it's a responsibility. Yup sometimes it's hard Sometimes it feels kind of scary Pray anyway pray anyway. It's so right it is right to pray all right now. I may probably at some point. Do another prayer podcast down the road. I don't know next week i'm going to talk about that. Wonderful saying in the christian community find a need and fill it. We're gonna do a little bit of a deep dive on that So you don't wanna miss episode forty four. Because like i don't know i might get up in. Somebody's grill for all. i know. i hope not. I really hope not. I just just wanna talk about sometimes It's easy to miss your calling. If you are just living under the find dunedin fill it thing we can. We can hide out there and not really step into the amazing role that god has for each of us and he does okay. So we're gonna talk about finding need and fill it way of serving in in the modern day church. Okay but about prayer. Might my talk more about per later. Let me know if you want me to.

They're ready to go to bat for you and I'm working on a book. It's an edit. Can you believe it. actually. I'm i'm working on final edits. I'm so excited. It's a forty day devotional. And it's all about god's promises that have that word will w. i l. l. in them and i'm excited about it okay so If you think of it pray for me that i can wrap it up well and get it done. A per god's timetable so you know let's be about honoring the lord in the work that we do and i just want to pray for you as as we close here. Not alinksy prayer. Not a specific prayer.

Ladies and gentlemen the Voice of K Squid Denny Way. Hey, what's up, everybody? Back great to see you again. Today's episode of the show is really special for US mostly because. Over the course of sixty or something episodes we've interviewed a lot of different people from a lot of different backgrounds, but one of the core themes that runs through everything that we do a coastal athlete program. Is this concept surf therapy and this idea that outdoor physical recreation and physical activity will help bring you down the road, and into a place of a better mental health like it place a better mental health, and in place of better overall physical health, so you know the best ability is availability, and so one of the ways that that's manifested for myself. Myself and for Joe Has Been Through Surfing and today we are joined by the founder of an incredible organization, an organization that Joe has way more experience within me, and that's why he's going to be taken the lead and Kinda guiding us through this, but without any further ado. I want to tell you guys about Surf Dog Ricochet. They can be found online at www dot surf dog ricochet are I, See uh-huh, C., H., e., T., dot, com, that'll be available in the show notes. You can also find them on instagram at Surf Dog Ricochet so served. Is An incredible organization that brings dogs. Surfing and mental health together in one beautiful harmony Joe. Why don't you go ahead and take over from here and introduce us to our our guest? Founder Judy for. For for. For Dona I say that right. Yeah that's our. Title Donald No. I like it I'm good with that. We'll welcome judy a definitely very stoked to have you on board. I wanted just to warn audience. If I say the name Ricky, I'm actually referring ricochet, so it's it's a name. Your Judy Call Ricochet all the time, so it's kind of a bad Abbott. Good quick before we get into the ricochet. Part I kind of wanted to touch on this that. You have experienced training dogs, and you've started a foundation around training dogs and helping people with that. You mind talking about that I kind of I. Guess Really Elaborating on that and what you do. Yeah, my background actually is in business development in healthcare and Gosh now probably about. Twenty years ago or so I started getting involved in dogs service dogs specifically, so I created a nonprofit called puppy prodigy. And that's. How fourteen years ago that I created that, and it was basically to train service dogs for people with disabilities, and I do a lot of war with neonatal copy, so from birth to eight weeks when their brains are still developing I started the training really. And it's pretty incredible with Moose little tiny puppies. Their eyes aren't even open yet. That are actually able to train so and then. Ricochet was born and changed. Lives. At that in Lincolnshire was born, my intention was to train her to be a service dog for some relief disability and to brilliant poppy, and actually the name of our now. Puppy prodigies, but most people know surf dog ricochet, so that kind of. Branded gas so. She yeah, she was like a really brilliant hoppy somewhere around fifteen to sixteen weeks raid. She shutdown didn't want to train anymore. She walked away from trading sessions and we struggle for like a year and 'cause I knew twos capable laws, but she just wouldn't do it, so At one point I decided okay. She's not going to be. She's not oh. I'm not at Dye. One soldier started. Realizing what birds were and she was chasing now with all the training of trying to get her to not chase birds, and so after her, not really cooperating anymore, birds I decided that choose probably not going to be a service dog in. It's really hard to see if once you put a lot of work in time into a dog. So I thought well. Maybe she could use some fund raising at the same time I knew a way at the time. He was fourteen years old and he was getting a service. Another organization that I work with called positive teams, and his name was Patrick so I thought okay. Well, maybe he's. Quadriplegic. He was run over by a car when he was. Fourteen months old, and Kim, Carter, page it because of that, so he was an adapted surfer, and that was Kinda my first introduction to adaptive surfing with with him so I a while. What I could probably do, we could raise some money for his his rehab and. He would go into therapy three times a week. So that's how it started out and So I thought okay. Will Ricochet was surfing at the same time I was training her rea-. Service Dog replaying around with surfing. Dog Surfing in southern CAL or in San. Diego actually was just at the starting time were just beginning so. She knew how to surf and That will deceive as adaptive server Shea served. What a great connection to do this fundraisers for my idea was to. If them both out in the water regime. Her Oregon Patrick on his and we sent my first press release I ever sent. To help Patrick raise money, so there were like. Four different news stations that came out there day in pursuit nervous I missed my exit twice, but anyway, so they had been surfing on their own board for a few waves, and that one point jumped off her board in onto. Patrick's so with ricochets idea to surf with someone who had a disability. And after that whole year that we were struggling, she was so excited it was like she was born again. Let us finally able to show me what she's on the first to jail, so she kept Brian back in the water that you would again and again yet, and she was so happy, so at that point I decided. Okay, I'M GONNA. Let you be who she is. I was trying to make something she wasn't. which was a service dog, and clearly she didn't want to help. Just one person wanted to help millions, so that's how it started. And yet it's been going ever since, and that was in two thousand nine, so it's. Twelve years tenure. Yeah bet eleven years. Yet I think I've we've seen some of those pictures. Possibly on the facebook page of her writing on the board was like A. Young Person's name Patrick Yeah it's really an inspirational story in this situation. See that now I know that didn't do well with the service training is she certified in anything else like is? She may be like a a therapy dog is she allowed to hospitals? What is she able to do? Besides be on the beach and Surf with people I? Know the answer to that, but I wanNA hear. Yes, so she was trained in serve as a service dog never placed. She is a certified therapy dogs through a local organization how positive teams and also alliance of therapy dogs and she's got the AKC has title for service dogs therapy dogs. She's got that as well. And what? What was the rest of the question? This. Note, that was that was it on the reason why I said that is a ricky? Has You and Ricky have a lot of access beaches? That may be normal. Dogs aren't allowed on. And I wanted to highlight that she has certifications for that in those reasons why she's allowed on those beaches and is able to work and stuff. I know go ahead I just going to say it gets a little. Complicated for me, but I think for other people so when you look at the Ada definition of what a service dog is, it's a dog that has been trained specific tasks to mitigate a disability. So when ricochet is serving with someone, it's not that she's just on the board this huge. Accident Mitigating someone's disability, though for instance, a child with autism who is just learning to serve. She's able to be used as a tool for that child to stand up because a hold onto her back then in. Stand up on the board when she is. Working with a veteran or service member that has post medic stress and she's actually working a capacity to help that individual with the civic tasks. She could be considered a service dog. I don't typically caller that people are. So I, just call her therapy dogs. You can also be considered emotional. DOUBT, It's she be in several different roles. But. I typically say their dog certified. They're just because. That's the easiest understand, but she does work a lot with servicemembers in veterans with post traumatic stress. Even wounded warriors and T B, I and MS, T, TV traumatic brain injury, and his mom doesn't understand that MSG as military sexual trauma, so she works with so many different populations, so just depending on. She's working with at the moment and what it is, she's actually doing. I personally have a disability, but I don't use her as a service dog she does. Yeah, I think I've explained it a few people that were on the beach. She's working and to me in my eyes I've always felt that she is a service dog. She's just not. imprinted or helping someone she helps everybody which I think is really amazing because I've been contests and I've watched her. Go around to different veterans at work. Could you. Kind of explain what she does with other veterans and kind of house. She helps mitigate misuse on the beach. Yeah. See is he has a capacity to know how to respond to someone. She's very intuitive, so kind of goes beyond just a therapy dog that she does. And sometimes I can't even could a word to what she does. Because she just it's A. Instantaneous connection with the person and she can read know what is going on with them even when they're not aware. We do every Thursday prior to this pandemic. With. belbow hostile. Do work with the recreational therapy department while it's called, we wellness. And They do their pursue richest part of that so every week. Every Thursday she's out with. A service member that HAS PTSD on go in the community and the service members actually are the handlers of dogs, so ricocheted the way that she communicates and Alerts Lecture Lurk to somebody's anxiety stress pain, anything I'm triggers times is she'll stop plant in that moves so in that moment where I typically do is I'll look in the environment. Joke will what is woke she alerting to? To here and whatever I see then I'll ask. The service member is X Y Z A trigger yours like for instance we one time were in South Park and it was just a small little neighborhood, and were walking through, and we went to cross the street and Ricky Shay stopped at the crosswalk would not move so what I taught her to do. This is again the. How train task that would make her more, a service is his okay. Ask Her which way she'll tell. She'll take you the way that she thinks this is safest, so she took us up a driveway and all. When I looked at the environment, all I saw was a garbage truck. was making a noise getting the trash, but it was a little further out so I didn't really think much of it, but said the it was a female marine emily and I said our trucks one of your triggers, and she said No. I don't have any triggers. which at that point encounters your? She did most of us do especially those with PTSD so. As, we're talking. She tells me about this time. When choose going across a crosswalk in a motorcycle didn't see her and almost hit her as she stepped off, and then right behind the motorcycle was was trump who also didn't see her and the mirror. The truck hit him in the head in Floss, so she did have trauma in a crosswalk, so she wasn't consciously thinking of it. It took a little bit of conversation Remember it, so it's things like that. That regime does that I can't explain but so I call it intuition I don't really know what it is but she does that all the time so. What happens when we work with the servicemembers? Is You know PTSD czar thing is it's invisible for the most part, so a lot of people might not believe you might understand it Doctors, whoever it is might just be like okay. Just get over it all the things that everybody hears about the responses to p jesting so with ricochet. It actually validates what a person is field. So I often hear the of service Meryl Saving Ricky. She's the only one who leaves me. And that's really powerful extremely so. Yeah and the other thing that ricochet doesn't again. I have. No comparison for this because I. Don't see anybody else out there talking about it. Her behavior will actually tell me what somebody's feeling. Or what their trigger might mean or. Just I'll give you an example. I call it I forget what I call it. But it's like she's able to. Make a picture. Out of a body language. To show me what a person is feeling so I can interpret it and then tell the person. So. For one of the. One of the examples I can give you is we were working with? Female Navy shoes in the Navy for twenty years. Getting wanted to stay in, but having the potential that you wouldn't be able to, and she really wanted to stay in, so we just met this person and. Ricochet took her in stood in a doorway. And, when it moves into the doorway so I said to the girl. Do, you feel like you're. Ready to open a new door or opening a new door too late the future and again. I didn't know anything about her and She said Yass was showing showing her that this is what act picking up the feel. So gets really intense. It goes really you. Most people do like it. We only had two. We've been doing that for eight years with Balboa and one person. One time wanted to switch dogs in the other one another one I think it was just yeah, just one that wanted to switch dogs, so if a person's willing, they can do a lot of healing. because. She brings up all this all this information, and then they can go to their Dr Talk about it. Yeah, I actually have a good example from last Thursday when ricochet came down to the beach. Ricochet kept standing on right. Now. I'd have really think about it and I even was thinking about after we had all left and. When I got home, my wife made a comment like you look really tired today. You look so hot. I was like Oh i. don't know, and then it was not until later in the day that I've figured out. I was in a lot of painting and I just had slowed down, and I was just ignoring it. 'cause like pushed a little too hard on Thursday morning, but it's amazing how ricochet will pick that up? I'll show also be in a group, and you can at least I have the ability. Sometimes. There's look at someone sinuses. On. And Ricochet definitely picks that up without even thinking about it. It's quite amazing what she can do and it's amazing. Her little signs of Stepping on your feet how she'll put her heading your hand and bug you. What are some other ways she tries to get? People drawn out of those guess maybe mindsets or Something like that. What is what is some of the things she does with that? Yeah, what I call that with. Would she sitting on your feet like that I? Call it that she's trying to get more points of contact because. We talk about a lot with the servicemembers is oxytocin which is hormone in your brain releases. Its when it's released reducing society. So making eye contact with the job or petting dog Isa's that Oxytocin, so however she knows that instinctively which she tries to do because kristen could be petting her, but she very often put her hand or Paw on a person's shoulder or touch them. Or sit on their feet so that there's more points of contact to release more oxygen, so yeah, it's like. If you start petting her she won't let me stop. She'll hit your hand or whatever to try to get you to pet her again and many most people think that. Oh, she such demanding Dobbs always wants to be petted. But that's not. It's that she knows the by putting her. The person's GonNa feel better. Yeah, don't put a little note in that that she has at a couple of times. Start stop heading. She went on to somebody else, so she knows that. When you have your fill or you're doing a better. To a better point, and she goes and help someone else. It's quite amazing that she can do that. Yeah and he's done that to me on the beach. Like one time she pulled me to this woman that was sitting on a blanket, and the woman was petting her and everything and it was snaps strangest I didn't Wanna ask her any questions, but when I was trying to get rid we'd she refused. The League's just like I'm not finished with this lady yet, and now is a few years ago every year with ricocheting, the more we work with the service, members and veterans, the more I learn, the more I can interpret her behavior. I've gotten really good at reading her. And it's it's kind of like a team effort. It's performing the behavior me interpreting it another servicemember. Validating it, and because we're able to do that, we've learned so much and now I can see it really suspicious. Very obvious behaviors I believe all dogs do these things I just think they're more subtle and a lot of times. We think the dog is misbehaving when they're really trying to tell us something, so that's something else. I do as I. Allow her do whatever she wants to do. Obviously, within reason, but. like there was one time in A. We were in Walmart, and we get permission to go in the stores with therapy dogs so we were working with another female marine, and she had been in the hospital, and got out like a day or two before, and she had seizures heads after medications and such and There's two stories with her, but so. Talk. Trainer and Ricochet with at the end of lease block again I'll. And as a service dog trainer with our normally, do would be the person you need to get ricocheted back at your side because she's obstructing an look here. We want the service dogs to be as unobstructed as possible but I didn't do that because I looked at the environment and I saw a man walking down the May Nile. And so I turned to the service members said. Our menu triggers and she said Yes then assaulted two times, so ricochet was doing was giving her more space, but getting at the end of her leash. So that's what six feet so that the the man couldn't get close enough to the woman to me her uncomfortable, so in that sense, it's like if you listen to the dog instead of correcting now often. They're telling you something really important. So I just wanted to ask a clarification question, you talked about service dogs behaving in a in a way that. These interpreters misbehavior. What are some of the communication strategies that you recommend for service? Dog Handlers for people who are working. You know service start. How recommend explaining that in an environment, so for example I work at a school and work at a lot of live sporting events, and I found that if I tell people that my dog's behavior can be an indicator of what I'm feeling, sometimes, it makes them feel a little bit more nervous or uncomfortable. So what's a way for me to effectively communicate that we have a specific language that that you know without indicating like? Hey. She's GonNa. Speak up when I'm feeling threatened, because sometimes when people see me and I feel threatened I. Know It. Makes people uncomfortable. But how do you feel threaten? Well if there if if posey starts behaving in in a certain list of the example that I give is that I was I was in a work environment, somebody came into the office behind me and startled me and Posey was laying at my feet, and it really gave me a jolt, and she popped up in growled and now every time she's around that person in particular she misbehaves, or she does something to create distance between her and the person that this happened with now I understand that that's what's happening. How do I how would you recommend communicating in a situation like that? Hey, my service dog is speaking for me or what kind of a strategy recommend there well I would recommend. Would not be a good response because you don't want to serve his article, I should clarify only the. Second time, she's ever growled. Ever, so it was a very startling for me to hear her respond that way. So I basically I guess what I would do. Is it just as individual that you're asking about or just in general that Ono I mean in general. You had mentioned that service. Dogs will reflect or anticipate like discomfort that they're. They're partner is feeling. What is an effective way of communicating to like co workers like? Hey, sometimes my dog may seem like it's not behaving like a service dog, but that's actually a way of communicating with me. I mean. Do they know what their service dog is four. People. No, I have PTSD. Okay so we just basically say this is the way my doc Munich's with me. It's not misbehavior because for me. I think this is one of the most important things that people need to know. Is Dogs don't misbehave? Sometimes of course ricochets dug up my whole yard, Zach Misbehavior. It's not actually because she's just releasing frustration from being in the House for two months whatever? So I don't believe dogs this behavior. I, believe every behavior dog does is purposeful. It means something. Now yes, sometimes, they're gonNA. Do something that we think is bad. But is it our fall that we should? We have not left the state on A. Coffee table whatever so I don't believe dogs misbehaving I would probably be the first thing I would try to communicate to them. Is that the Dog Zach? Misbehaving she's communicating. Because? That's what they really are. So what we do is humans is either redirect the behavior or correct the behavior to than the dog stops, and now they're not telling US anymore. So that's why I think when I say I really all dogs have the capacity. We don't let them have it. I mean I was doing the same thing for a year with rookie shares China something I wondered. Instead of listening to her, and she had way more than I could ever imagine that she was able to do. So I guess I would just say that. You think people think she's misbehaving such as your perception. I mean it might be a mixture of both I. mean the very nature of what Posey helps me with is my ability to manage. The social anxiety symptom of my post traumatic stress like I recognize that it's not denying incapable of engaging in social environments. I've always been very comfortable with that, but my responses to certain things can be different in so I. I recognized, and it's kind of hard to talk about it when they feel like. We haven't gotten to do as much service work. Over the last two to three months as we had leading into that, where basically from nine weeks old till now it's just been straight through training and develop a skill and then implement that skill, and then add another skill. But I guess at this point I'm more referring to like Joe. And I have run into the situation where we're on the beach, conducting a class with our service animals and we get chased off the beach by you know the state parks, lifeguards or I'm in a scenario where somebody says. You can't bring your dog in here and I say well. She's my service animal and it's like well. Do you have any proof and it's just like well. I've gotten pretty good at managing those type of interactions, but when it comes to people who are around me on a regular basis i. don't want them to think that. I guess what I'm saying. Is it scares me the idea of giving that much insight to the people around me like? Hey, you can see that I'm in distress because my dog is in distress. Or. Is that me taking it a little out there? I mean they don't have to know that. You don't have to say to them really. Right Business. So just say oh well, my dog. When cheaper out this the Oh, I was startled, so my dog was startled. Just I don't think you own anybody in explanation. Awesome no, I I asked, because you are so like UN. Joe are both so much more comfortable with having a service animal and for me the first year I felt like I walked around with a giant target on my back, because all of a sudden I had a physical manifestation of this internal conflict. That was just hey, everybody. In case you were wondering I need a dog And that's the way it sells servicemembers when they're contemplating. Getting Joe is you're not invisible anymore. Everybody sees you now. So it's. It's something that you take into consideration. If you're looking to get a service of his people will see. and. They don't have to do PTSD in the service out there for seizures. So you know what I mean like. You just say she's my service dog. They don't know why. Because that's all private your ex exactly For we're going to go that Sark teach me. All the time, but it's fun I wasn't A. Conversation to. Talk! When did we get ice cream? I definitely know. Talk will alert me to certain things and. I know certain people in the family may think that him. Bugging for attention or standing on foot is bad behavior, but for him and I that's a way of communication. He said stands on my foot and looks at me if I'm feeling certain sugars or feeling cert- ways at other times he'll turn around and SIP. Both is but based on both my feet, so there's definitely different things that he does. That some people might interpret that as bad behavior. By chance did you ever developed that curriculum about reading your dog's behavior and put it on your website. I can't remember. I didn't put it on my website, but I will. I have advertise it. They're like we're doing the presentation. I just one last we do you talking a little bit about explaining how kind of you're? You're taking what we look for in service dogs that nuance behaviors, and how to apply it to regular dogs. Do Mind talking about little bit about that and what? You're trying the message you're trying to get out about. That make sense really. It's different. It's not a not looking to teach regular dogs service dogs. Are. At Yeah I'm looking at people identifying understanding that. Dobbs intuitive or instinctively? Do, things! So it's being able for them to. If the dogs bugging them on. Like I, teach my dogs. If they want something and they come to me. I always say show me, and so they can take to what they want to have to constantly be wondering. So or Noticing, most of 'EM, teaching to be. Honest is. Is it bad behavior or misinterpretation? So that they can look at their dogs differently as to like I. DO teach them about eye contact. because I wanted to be able to help other veterans such and just learning the contract petting could be enough to reduce some anxiety, but the the for the service members. It's like teaching them especially now, because will now as on lockdown as much, but a lot of people have dots in home already that want service job will it takes time to get a service dog, so if you have a dog at home now that Doug probably help you or is trying to already help you. You're just not recognizing it, so it's really trying to teach people to recognize what the dogs are doing, and it's not that you have to teach them how to do it. When I was GONNA. Say Now I forgot. WHAT IS GONNA say? Oh. I forgot your name that. SHEP. Yep sorry without going to sit now is. If you want your dog to alert you, you can teach it her. Is it her? Girl Yeah to do a specific behavior, so for instance you could poke you, and then nobody even knows that she's coping besides Gio. She does that too so. Yeah so I mean are worse closure. I am I'm not the quickest study and so Posey has learned that sometimes. She S to try a couple of different communication strategies with me. Sometimes they slowly escalate sometimes. She just goes straight to nuclear, but as soon as I dress. Everything's okay. It's usually me that slow on the uptick because I get so locked into that thought process. Ricochet 'cause I've tried so many things one. She stops implants and she doesn't want to move again. It's hard to get it moved. So I've tried a lot of things like saying okay bridging. Thanks for telling us. But she's like goes into your soul and knows you're not really okay. So But I. Think as you go on. How long have you had her? Posey and I've been working together every day since the first week of March of two thousand Hattie together that long. So the more that you're with her. I mean look we. I've been doing this for eight years and I still learning ricochets, behaviors and what they mean so. One as you go on with her, you're going to pick up on things a lot faster than you are now. Having had a dog before I had dogs when I was a kid, but my only experience around service dogs was I knew a couple of people with seeing eye dogs when I was younger and I knew one dog that alerted people about seizures like alerted a family about seizures, but when I was younger, the Mystique of the services animal was was a lot more steep like it felt like there was there was. Was a pretty strong wall between the idea of you can do this yourself verses. This has to be some an animal that comes from the super expensive long pipeline, and I am now much more understanding that the needs of somebody who has who can't see are significantly different than somebody who has post, traumatic stress or social anxiety or or some type of balance issue I think that I'm more receptive to the. To the flexibility of what dogs can do to help humans. It is different because obviously program is a lot of programs out. There's a lot of programs out there now. Training Service dogs for veterans but when if it's somebody with like mobility impairment. There's a lot more that goes into training, and it is a lot more structured a lot more Specific because you want the doctor able to retrieve over door, so it's a lot more. Physical tasks that the dog would do a post to being able to alert you to yourself. Or to Reducing anxiety during Zayed's. You're not going to have a full blown panic attack order. Yeah. Definitely agree with that in. One of the things I wanted to bring up. Was the kind of I guess I'll say flying through work or the nonprofit work you ricochet do. From what I understand you and Ricky have foundation. And basically you I. Don't know exactly how we fundraise, but there's some fundraising involved and US support different people in different endeavors, one of them I have been recipient of is Jose, and I have been helped by you with housing going to certain surfing events in giving us the place to stay close to our venue, which has been very amazing and very very grateful, for I kind of want to hear more about that and just let the audience know about that. You know what you do and how you fundraise and some things like that. Yeah, we Raised? Over six hundred fifty thousand dollars now that time that she's been working. And it's gone to humane. Animal Causes. It's just a lot of times when there's crises and things like that. Now that she's twelve. She's not surfing as much so what we're doing is Brain, stop! What would doing is? Sponsoring athletes adapted surfers. Jose is one of them. and being able to get back in that way, even though she's not honest board anymore that still very much involved, so most of our fundraising honest is done online or through our email lists. We don't really do events to raise money, so we have a lot of release, supportive donors and That's pretty much. What we do. Let me. Let me ask a little bit for a little more clarification on that. Do you guys have any large corporate sponsors? Because some of the entities that exists within the surf therapy space are supported by groups like Bank of America or starbucks are. Do you guys have a big ticket sponsor? That's able to provide this. Or how were you able to keep the lights open? Keep how how many veterans are how many total people would you say you guys have helped in the last eight years. I lost count actually but On our website, we have a list of every fundraiser. and. I. Don't know how many there are to be honest. With no, we don't have any corporate sponsors. We've gotten grants here and there. But we're not like a big organization like an especially because. What I started profit to be isn't what actually doing right now right now. It's focusing on ricochet in her work and she keeps me so busy. There's really no time to be training puppies and such so. It would be great to be able to have a large sponsor our larger grant. We could do a lot more, but yeah, so if you guys at home, WanNa find a way to directly get involved. If you go to surf dog ricochet dot com slash current tax fundraisers. It's going to bring you to this awesome poster section, and you guys can order twelve months of ricochet twelve months a healing. Healing so that's one simple way that everybody at home can get involved and help with this process. Another way that I know of that our audience can help. You is whenever you post something on social media, a challenge, the cap community to re post that to get it out there and share it with the world, because this is something especially today we live. We live in a country we. We live in a world that's in desperate need of healing and desperate need of unity, and this is something that truly transcends transcends everything. This is just people healing together with dogs and it's. It's an incredible organization. We're so incredibly grateful that that you started this and you know I can say as somebody who joe has been the the the driver of my progress through this path of initially. Initially acknowledging that I had a problem and then learning how to treat and live with it in my own way, you know. I know that you were crucial in Joe on this path as well and pushing him further down this this road of formalized surf therapy, so on behalf of everyone in the cap community were super grateful that you gave us Joseph. Thank you so much for that Judy. Take Credit Joe. Tell ready had a service dog before I knew it. We! We have a few times in two thousand eleven or twelve right before I got my dog. Yeah, it's been amazing to watch. Why it when he's out and about so a little while to warm up, but what I always say with the serve therapy I, always present it is you have the healing power, the ocean and a healing power, but. When he puts you. Get put them together. It's so incredibly powerful so it just. You know even just British being on the beach that she does. Jimmy Miller wins Ah Camp Pendleton when there's not a pandemic and most plan. She's on that. They do the sharing circle prior to this Salak that can be done on the Egypt doesn't even have to be honest Sir for but to have a dog involved and with on it like even at the contest. People were anxious, because were getting surfing. They were nervous and everything so having an I. think there was one veteran that was angry about something running looking for ricocheted. Settle her down so it just. Just. Help in ways more than we'll ever own now. Yeah, they definitely do it's. It's quite amazing. The impact I know one thing we joke with Ozias. We have a little nickname for her. That owes knows, and it's not talking about physical knows. It's because she knows everything, and even she's alerted to me on thanks for. Talk of gained up on the as I have been. A dog sat her times, so it's been quite fun. Yeah, I believe that they do not not just incredible. So since we're getting close to wrapping this up, what are some ways for people to get a hold of you to learn more about ricocheted. Keep in contact with you, guys. What are some of the better ways for that for people to reach you guys? He's got a website. Which is Surf Dogra Cochet Dot Com and then she's on Instagram, twitter and facebook under Sabra Shea. And my email is inspired at AOL. Dot Com if anybody wants to contact me directly. If there's anybody else in your also on Youtube. Yeah we're I'm U2. Also served ricochet. Looking at your website, if people listening want to take a more active role in supporting the mission, there's actually a link where you can donate supplies directly off of the Amazon wishlist that the organization needs to undergo activities, so talk about being able to see exactly where your money goes. Help out by providing things that that this group needs to to work on the beach. When you know what this with the hope, pandemic and being homebound for so long. We started doing virtual visits so now would actually can. Work with. Veterans Kids anybody. Do Zoom. And now I started doing because are the programs Belbow been suspended including the surfing one, but the canine one is well so I started doing with ricochet one. An one house calls so we'll go out to a person's home. outdoors with stay outdoors is to make it less likely for the virus, and they were gloves and masks, and whatever but this way. There's a lot of people haven't had touched in months so being able to touch dog and. And then I stay six feet away or whatever, but that's available to people now as well and we finally went back to the beach and saw Joe Jose, and some of the other guys last Thursday because she needs it to like she's very much a. Social dog like she needs interaction and now that she's twelve. I head scared like she's twelve years old. If I don't get out there, she's going to. Check out and I didn't want that to happen so I kind of weighed the benefit versus of risk. There was just way more benefit so. so yes, there were spending money on gas to do that kind of thing. So donations will toward that as well. Before we get out of here. I just realized that Danny has not had the opportunity to ask any questions. And Typically Danny is the voice of the audience for the Coastal Athlete Program filling in the blanks Joe and I talk in shorthand all the time, so it's. It's great to touch base with Danny before we get out of here day anyway. Yeah I. I've accrued some pretty dumb questions here. I'll only ask you. You all seem to know a lot about this and you seem like a real dog. Whisper First of all I. Don't know if you mentioned. But what kind of dog is ricochet a golden retriever supply bring. I think I saw her walking past a little while ago. My other one. That gets okay. Another question is too I. Think when people think of service, animals or service dogs, they think golden retrievers or labs. What are some of the more unique breeds of service dogs that there are in visit matter what kind of dog it is like I've never seen a Weiner dog or like a greyhound. Service in. That sense. Make Sense. The typical dogs Ucla like you said as Golden Retriever Labrador retriever German shepherd. a lot of people for balanced support have great Danes. But emotional support, you'll see every breed. Depending on the disabilities so say if somebody needs it for mobility, or they're in a wheelchair and they're going to need a dog. That can retrieve so if If. One of those hot dog dogs retrieve. They could be a service dog. Hearing, dogs typically are. Smaller dogs, but it could be any breeden especially now. Always Ptsd dogs are everything you see. Pit Bulls out there mixes. Pretty Much Poodles Poodles are good. The people who have allergies so yet. It's all different kinds of dogs out there these days awesome. Will Judy thank you so much for taking the time to come and join us today? Thank you so much for everything that you're out there. Doing in terms of being ambassador, not only four service animals and surf therapy, but for being abridged that brings those things together and behalf on behalf of everybody in. In the community, thank you for keeping keeping some joy in our in our lives I for one will now truly look forward to seeing your instagram posts every day because it makes his all the things. I love all up into one before we let you go, is there any last minute plugs that you wanted to get in any promotions that you wanted to to get out there to the world?

He is like texting on his phone while trying to it right in the middle of pot. Okay. Go ahead you want me to go first with my story. Yours is better. So that's probably. Is Not. Okay. So Bobo back in his past many many years ago. Had A had a wild hair up his bottom? And and said, you know what? I'm in Texas in Amarillo, I'm living in Amarillo Texas I Brian I buy bread van for five hundred bucks I. Know You deal was a big one, thousand, nine, sixty, four, GMC bread van idea that Oh it was the coolest. It had a shifter like behind me and if you've seen the pictures, the shooter was this big long pipe that was sticking out of the middle of the floor, and that's how and I would have to reach back here, put the clutch in reach behind me and put it into gear and it was only three years. I was a Brit supposed to be delivered I. Don't know I think it was a different setup than what it originally I think it was probably a column or something I don't know how they did this, but it was Funky I had a nut on the top and a piece of wood on the top of the and it was literally it was like three feet high. I've got pictures and you can see it in there I'm like that's the shifter in this like it's behind you how do. To grow back here and shifted, but it was huge. So it worked trust all. Going up hills sucker doing this. All Year Oh trump's gonNA. Love One. It was that Brad Vanden you. So when I first bought it. We would go out partying. So yeah, it's yours. If. You want it. So we would go out and we had a bunch of dudes I remember. I had like seven or eight dudes in the back of his bread banner. You know we're just driving around just flopping around in the back. There's no it was completely open just metal in the back, and somehow these girls drive up next is not cool role. And this girl I don't know what she was thinking. The passenger girl like. Come on, come on job so she. Jumps in I don't know what I don't know if she thought it was just a big party in this big man. But she gets in. And I'm like, okay, this is not good for her because it's all just like seven or eight. Ed's in this bread Van I. Think once she got in and we drove down the road she's like okay. This was a big mistake on my and I'm like OK. Guys Luckily, her girlfriend did not leave her. So at the next light or something I said Hey do you want to get back in your card she? Here, that'd be great terrorized. A whole but hopefully, she wasn't groped or anything too. Badly I don't know we never heard. She's part of the me too movement probably. Yes. So and And I could tell that you know, hey, this could get out of hand really really quickly. We had we had a lot of interesting times in the bread van was just say that but I remember that one getting it but and then I had this wild hair that I was going to go be a fisherman in Alaska fishermen had this great idea why not? Well, I had been to the library and I was like what a weird jobs. So it was I went to the library. This is back in the early early nine. They has book. Yeah. Where they have books I, go into the library and I. I get this I find a book on Jobs, interesting jobs or high paying jobs or whatever there was logging all. Fishermen in Alaska was WANNA. Oh. That sounds they can make forty bank. Oh, they really good money. We could do it just. So happens that somebody I knew knew somebody had a relative up there that had a fishing boat. And so I called the Dude in Alaska. and. He was like, who is this? Why are you calling me? I WANNA come in Alaska and I'm like I don't know if he gets a lot of these calls or whatever. Okay. Sure. Yeah. We could probably figure out. So I'm like cool. I got a job in. Alaska. I'm. Sad? I don't call guy back. Anything ever no. I just decided I'm going to drive to Alaska from Texas and be in a British. And be a fisherman. Story. So it'd be a book. It's to be a book, the Trap Bobo and. A Bogo the travels through. So, Anyway I. Carpet the whole back of the I'm GonNa make a comfortable dude I'm going on a big trip. So I- carpet the whole thing I get some Naja-nivea Shangen wagon shaggy wagon and I have a queen size bed full queen size bed in the back of this bread van half of the back of the bread van is just my big queen bed on this nice? Mattress. Well, my mom she had these no flat tires back in the day on her big fancy car and they put those cool tires these these really really expensive tires on the bread so I would never have to worry about flats or anything. Totally worked to buy late. Wow. I drove ten thousand miles in this van to Alaska. Long, story, Short I. Get there. Get to the guy's place. He's not there. I call him and I go hey, do called you like two months ago. Can we have a job and he's like what? What what John Yeah he's like do I'm full up I've got all my boats are full. Dude I just drove ten thousand miles. He's like I'm sorry. Yeah. It was quite the adventure but inbetween there got some fishing pole and just went through town. Why went to the the the? Just like any city has the job place where you go get a job, you know this for the city or whatever. That well, it just so happens just. So you know in Alaska, lot of kids go of they're looking for Fisher jobs. That was like five hundred of us. At the. At the the employment place. Five, hundred at least five hundred gives and they have all these videos playing, and most of these kids get jobs at the canneries not inefficient. Fishing boat is where you can make some good money right? They don't let anybody get on the fishing boat you're in the cannery cutting the heads off fish you're eighty hours a week. Fifteen bucks an hour or so I mean, it's Just. It's not horrible money, but it's pretty brutal and everybody lives in tents on the canneries far area. Wow. But I was in class these guys all had tests. I had a frequent bread van with full. Yes. With a queen size bed. Did. You Play Queen on you're listening to the band? Yeah. Did you listen to me? I had. Yeah. I just watched Bohemian rhapsody. Recently. So anyway, Gosh none of this has anything to do with the story that I was actually going to tell I like to set up that was the setup of of the actual story. So I'm in the Yukon, this is on the Alaskan highway I'm going to Alaska I've been on the road it took me ten days to get there well. I've been on road six seven days something like that is the fall winter. Some gets it's it's right after it. I was the air night bobby said cold and crisp. Or is it? April it's April so it's Cold up there than no, no wasn't that CO actually April. Maybe, the beginning of May something like that wasn't that cold. Well sometimes. But in Alaska got up to ninety degrees of times ray. But at night it's gotta go down. Yeah, we get. Sometimes we get chilly and I had below zero black dude I came totally prepare. Compared prepare. But Anyway, so I'm in the middle of I'm in the middle of the Yukon. In the middle of absolutely nowhere nowhere on the Alaska highway driving along. And you know usually I would just kind of pull over alongside the road, which is another cool story about most that comes up to my window but I'm not GonNa, tell that one who? Okay. So I set this house there's this house in the middle of nowhere. Yeah that. There's this house in the middle of nowhere and it says RV parking RV RV new you know like like. RV Park Yeah there you go but it's a house. Yeah, it does get a little creepy here. Yeah we need to keep pushing that button for a lot of the show. So that's cool place to stay here for the night and it was Kinda early there hadn't been traveling that long I I took it pretty easy. I. Would you know? Bread van didn't go over fifty miles an hour anyway but. I pull into this. House that says it's an RV bark. And and. There's this people there in this house the family you know some kids and a mom and a dad and. That kind of local some stuff like that and I'm like so there's an RV park. Can you stay there oh? Yeah. Yeah. Oh. Yeah. You can stay here and they're like, do you want just just a pad? Do you want to you want food? He can get food too. That's cool. Yeah. I'll I'll have a pad and food and it was like fifteen bucks fifteen bucks it was like fifty bucks for forever. And so my okay cool. Where do I get the food and they'll? Come in so. We all sat down at the table I sat down at his family's table and they. Just. Like you would. Suck you at any other family get together. You said it didn't you pass around the food what do you want and it was the most surreal? It was like they just took me. A, Long. lost. Cousin. An RV people that supposed to be at the RV. Park? Great. Yeah, they weren't there but did do a couple of the food was great. The food was amazing. But I am getting this deliverance vibe. And I'm thinking. A little funky. then. You know you WANNA. Do anything I'm going to do anything like what we have a canoe the back, and you can go canoe when the lake back there. Really deliverance at that point I'm in a canoe. Travelling in the lake on the canoe it was actually beautiful. It was wonderful is amazing. I'm there by myself in the canoe. It's cool. It was a little free. You know the the late kind of felt like the Friday, the Thirteenth Lake. What's that lake? On Time Map. Lake, whatever that Lake is Friday thirteenth. The Halloween anybody yeah. No. No the Friday, the thirteenth lake it's something lake. Anyway everybody on the planet who's ever seen except for you and me I can remember what that lakes Lake. something. You know let's period where Jason is lack of mom lives and To be truthful I've never seen Halloween. Or Frank. I'm talking about fried you keep saying, Halloween. It's a completely different movie are nothing alike other than people get killed by a dude okay. Other than that. There really one is in suburb during Halloween fray thirteen's with Freddie. That's another completely different. That's that's a nightmare on ELM street. Yeah announce three. Yeah that's A. Different Movie Ryan you're fired about armor. That's it. You're done. So anyway. I Have A. Good time on the lake and I get and I find a little spot for my my bread van and it's nineteen sixty it's an old it looks. Ancient. Rundown. Bucket Yeah it's but it runs in it. Even pointed puppy Parkin. It gets nighttime and I go to sleep. and. I WANNA say it's like too. It's around two in the morning two or three in the morning it's it's not when everybody's out partying. Some Ito's. But some wakes me up I don't know what wakes me up but I'm. I'm in the bed all my queen bed in the back doors have these two little windows and I'm laying down right underneath the two little windows. It's interesting. All of the sudden. I don't know why I woke up. But I see a hand moving up the window really slowly. He pushes its finger on the window. And it starts to make a letter. Really. Slowly. I at this point I'm like I am in a horror flick right now. I'm totally okay. I'm thinking okay. This is really frigging the not talking whoever it is that just this hand that looks like this creepy dead evil. Corpses hand. No it just like a regular hand. But at that point, I was feeling that way and he's riding. Writing out some letters on my window, not a foot in the half from my head. Right right breakdown. Talking. There is like there's a bunch of people out there anything it's just It's just Jason I know it's Jason out there with his frigate. That's when all hell breaks loose and I killed him. So he right. He finishes writing and I look up and he's written howdy Ithaca. Window Audi Ithaca to this day don't have a clue what was in that person if you're that person, please tell us why you're. Out, he is. What does that mean? Why would you write that on a windy windy a window. Howdy Ethica why would you do that? Don't know. But. So I'm like okay. It's a frequent weird dude. I'm just going. Go back to sleep. I'm like you know what? I'm just going to pretend none of that happened until he starts to try and break into the door right? Well. Gets to the front. So this is how I lock my. The bread van has this little swinging swinging door in the front right where the where the where I sit just like you do with the ups guy swinging door. Well there is no like real lock so I. I put a padlock on the outside and I the window and I can padlock the door and then I shut the window right? Right. Well. I hear the Jiggling on the bad lock to. Go this is it's all. Just so happen.

Then winning. adrover out of the parking you told me where to go with the worst part of younger and a place called Colfax which I knew is bad because when we first moved to Denver, we were told to avoid that. The Flake? Nothing on there's to sale where you live. There's two sides of Colefax is a good sign in the bad side. Got It. And then you went into the best. Actually did some photography on Colfax during my time school there and found some great pictures of. The locals. Very. Cool. So then So.

Dr Pepper. The official drink a fans Ville grab some today But Pride Passion than pattern. Three of college football leaves here. This is the Paul Finebaum. Show our RETU- podcast second hours. Live and welcome as we continue with more phone calls. Eight five five two four to seven to who eight five If you're just getting on board you missed one of the better interviews of the football season Stephen. A Smith stuck around and sat right here next. Ask for a couple of quality minutes and hope you were able to hear it. Otherwise maybe we can distribute that later for those who missed it. Let's get to the calls at eight five five to fourteen. Not Seven to eight five and Mike is in Arizona. Hello Mike Hey what's up. Man How are you doing. Good man. Love Your Show Love Stephen Smith course and I have a question about Jim Harbaugh. Is there a reason why he still has a job. I mean he's going up against a first year house they cook. She should have never lost to Regardless of you know they got the talent or whatever and I think honestly in my opinion he's scared of these Games James and the reason I say there's a couple of years ago. He was at Iowa in their pink locker room. Any changes ought to like Cammo because he lost their once when he was playing. I just feel like AH scared. And he's not the the coach that like you know he kinda came to be and I know he's got a lot of wins in bowl games and stuff but He just doesn't get it done. And the whole big point of being a Michigan Fan is not losing to a house state. And they haven't won since Kerr era which they fired car for the same thing. Mike if Michigan cared cared about beating stage harbaugh would have been fired Monday. They don't care and the reason why they don't care is because the program makes a lot of money they a have a good brand and I think they have come to accept that Jim Harbaugh is as good as they can do. I don't think so. Well let me ask you this. You're the athletic director at University of Michigan. If you fire Jim Harbaugh. We're which which direction you go. Well there's a lot of Like maybe the Boise state coach. You know somebody that's actually declare Claire Little Bit more. You're going to bring. You're going to bring the Boise state coach in Michigan their former coach. Yeah the one back. Nope you WanNa Championship. No I don't mean to be disrespectful but if you have followed the Chris Peterson story you would have heard him say today but he was burned out. He didn't have it anymore. And you're gonNA take a guy that's burned out at a at a low pressure job like Washington where you can win eight or nine games if you win ten or eleven. They think you're great if you don't They'll go okay. We'll try better next year. It's Washington that guy's not going to University of Michigan. I mean it takes. They say it takes a serial killer to go to Michigan and try to be allow states. The way things are right now. Appreciate the call. Antoine is in Michigan. You're on the air. Hi Paul how you doing. We're doing great. Thanks for taking my call. I wasn't talking about The playoffs but then I got the I heard your first caller. And okay. This look at Jim Harbaugh's You know records and stuff and and look what he inherited you know. There was no skill positions. You know pile. State has the skill positions you know. They got the player that skill positions. Hey hold hold on a the secondary antoine was. I don't care. I don't care whether we whether he inherited a program that had been on the death penalty. He's been there five years. Are you telling me in five years at the University of Michigan. You can't put a team together. You can put a team together Paul but you gotta put it. It takes wrong one built today and you gotta get those skills he He is recruited fairly. Well Yeah but you. You know the skill players like like you know when you go in there and get Like deep Sweetie going there in Alabama get the number one receiver you go in there and still have players nobis players from all over but you know rich. Ride dilkes US in What some call it Delta's in you know so so your players there and you gotta get rid get rid of those players but you know what I'm saying? You have to get the players skill players to come near you know what I'm saying. We didn't have a good running back for the past couple years. You know what I'm saying. So he worked with what he got but he's getting the players there now. So you know well listen Couple of years ago Jim Harbaugh landed. Rashawn Gerry who was the number one. The player in the country landed. I think the number four class overall that elite players really. Don't WanNa go to Michigan No. Is that office player. Though for Sean Gary was a Defense being defensive end we're talking about officer the players. That's what we get beat at the skill players like they received problem. That's your problem. I know it's not I know is our problem but I'm saying you know what I'm saying. He getting a player. Anton let me let me give you some advice. Okay you're Michigan Fan. Yeah I think you just need to accept mediocrity and you know why I think you need to accept mediocrity okay because you're because you're you're administration is not only accepted mediocrity but embrace it. I am no longer criticized Jim Harbaugh. It's a waste of time for me. I thought they have gone. After every quality position imaginable. Jim Harbaugh went to Rome. He went to Normandy. He went to the moon. Come on I mean no. Nobody commanded the stage. Had more people panting after him too clever. ESPN or I mean. That is just ridiculous for you to say what you're saying. Just accept the fact that elite players no longer want to go there. Okay Okay so who you GonNa get if if you're not you're Antoine. You're not going to get anyone because Michigan is going to keep Jim Harbaugh. Okay listen now. Let's hold on a second. If I were the athletic director. He would have been fired Monday. But I'm not the athletic director. I'm a lowly talk show host. Paul I I would. I would be ready to hire someone I mean you. I mean athletic. Directors jobs are to raise money and hire and fire and after the Wisconsin game. Which I think was the second or third game of the year I would have compiled a list I would have compiled house one after the army game and I would I would have already named one I mean unless my guy was playing in a conference championship game but everybody wants to keep asking me the same question GonNa get you go out and hire a big time coach. You want to say no good. I'm just trying to tell you that your program is a loser and accepted mediocrity so just accepted it just another no. No no no no. You have a good time. Every tame on the road you'll beat them at home and then you'll just get your Your backside blown off every time on that final Saturday. I mean it's really not a big deal. Just accept it but we say that we're GONNA get okay. It's okay to be. I don't know how to say without getting fired. It's okay to yeah. I mean you're just you're just not I mean trying to be elite okay trying to be successful chestful. No you gotta work happy you gotTA threat. Be Happy with getting to a New Year's Day bowl having Florida shreds you by four touchdowns offline I'll bet would be to back off. Beat the hell out of Florida. Get Antoine I just got through watching that game last year in Atlanta. Why don't you go back and watch it again okay? Dan Mall in from last time. Horrible on the side of the road naked and it wasn't a pretty sight but we beat them before that though the year before that we beat them so I mean what you talk about what happened the year before that. I'm talking about what happened last last year. In the ball game okay last year and I told her favor. Okay we will you just do me this one favor come on would you would you. Would you follow my lead here for one second. What's your leap? Repeat after me. Michigan is a loser program winning program now. No Michigan is a loser ought not here. We will no longer be elite. Jim Jim Harbaugh's a good coach but every year he will take his annual beating by Ohio. We'll be back for families family of eat crow. We'll call you back you. How long do you say Jim Harbaugh? Is there for fifteen in years the record will be Oh in fifteen against Ohio state. Please come up. Are you smoking dope. I'm doing that. But I'm also spitting spitting out the truth. We'll take a good break more to come more of your phone calls at eight five five four to seven to eight five. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast tobacco Daca. We are here on this Tuesday afternoon. A lot going on. Let's talk a Chris who is in Tennessee Lacrosse Ball. Yesterday we talked about the loyal Miss Fired Matt Lou. We agreed on that when Matt Luke was hired the boars rejoice in Washington one end jubilation. Because he was very well light up. Like Ole Miss Program by probably like two or three years because kids like plumlee and Lee who stars Ilia Five Star Day or baseball prospects for the pros and they will not spe probably in the football program the other playing on wall all to say to you is one thing that affected loose fire was a horrible loss to California. Won The referees A from California mishandled the end of the game and I've never shown a film down. The goal line of the Laos US touched a pass reception. They said it was not a touchdown but they haven't shown a replay of which spn. And I love this show over and over and over every game I would like for you to petition. NC A to make the referees from the West Coast release those films. Good question Chris thank you Thank you very very much Gary in Georgia is up next. Hello Gary Hey Paul how are you doing. We're doing well good. Thanks for taking taking my call Looking forward to the Saturday and before I go any further make a prediction Now he's not even yesterday's you're not ready making addiction about the doors. LSU She game. But I'm GonNa tell all the The betters out there. The follow scores GonNa beat Georgia twenty three LLC Sixteen I wish they would hope to be the case. Similarly 'cause shot at Clemson so bad I wanNA play Clemson I know that some of Y'all so some of the callers early Kinda stole my fire how I WanNa ask you though What what is going on with that though? He's he's never have never known him into Clark that or say look at. What's what's going on with that? But I think I think the Irish is frustrated because he wins the national championship. And everyone just not only ignores program but comes down on it and I just think The other night it reached bowling point. That's a that's a rivalry game right. It should. It should mean something but Let's be honest I mean. We'll we'll Mush Amazon. Such a mediocre job at South South Carolina that Beating them at even williams-brice just didn't it just didn't matter to anyone greg directly so I think he was went off off saying hey by by the way I mean this team be Georgia i. I understood his argument. I think if he had done it in simplistic terms but but I mean he had to go on everyone which yeah I said No. I just I I mean I'm sure you don't have to be I guess is pretty pretty equal no matter what you have on your mind but I don't know I just I get I get kind of tired of hearing the ACC. Talk about this and talk about that and You know I was just telling my son a little while ago my dream would be for the ACC for year to come over and play an SEC. Scared they'll play. Ah Games LET THEM PICK OUT THE FORTY MOBILE LOUIS team as you know as long as you could pick out a another. AFC team to play. you do that for your four four games and we'll pick somebody play so it wasn't that long ago that I thought the ACC was really trending in the right direction. But I'm not really sure You know what happened. Miami imploded North Carolina went backwards. Maybe coming back a little bit now. NC State had a couple of good years Duclos Louisville every everyone just crash and burn this year. Exactly exactly likely I mean I don't know just. I'm all the excitement over that new network. We'll say now. I think it was all the excitement over the network People were distracted. The I guess so. I'm I'm sitting here. Thinking was talking to my son about the TIM chip. ACC and you know and just here Clemson and Virginia and I I'm not locking over to India but they're not they're not Levi's kind of elite splendor has done a good job of rebuilding the program. I mean they want to share the Belbow last year end just destroyed South Carolina. That impressed me exactly but I just I I'm I'm a fan of Davos. A think get mad and He runs a unbelievable program Ram but for him to get on there and talk that and one more thing I'll I'll I'll hang up During the course of the season you know with when he have Clemson with a scheduled luck they play. I wonder how many of their ones and even twos you know. See the fourth quarter now And I say that always always say that You know they're they're ones. It'd probably played half of the season. So far you know and and pretty much fresh fresh legged and Uninjured I know. They've probably got a couple of guys banged up. But you know compared to a lot of teams there They're sitting pretty good. Yeah just one one complaint about the SEC. Gary is a really really good one. Rick and California is on the air. Hello Rick Paul. Thanks for taking my call Paul and let me answer the question if your last caller nobody nobody's ever heard on Plumpton. I said that my last call windy. You ever hear somebody audio clemson getting hurt. Because they don't play they just don't have to play anybody and the reason dabbles upset is because they won their toughest game on the schedule and nobody's he's given credit for it because their toughest game on the schedule is modern day. High School out here in southern California so but listen as far as The Game I wish you go go back and find my tastes because I rick I remember yeah I said listen. I said Jones would be a huge part of any championship. Run the kicking game would kill Alabama. And after the Ole miss gain the grease fire defense would end up costing Alabama's well. All three things happened happen. So it's it's a blessing in disguise. They didn't belong in the final four anyway But I think Georgia could run here. I think their defense is is the best in in the country I can see them Given Lsu all kinds of trouble So I I think a lot of people are sleeping on the on. Kirby's team I don't know what you think right but I mean if somebody today where are they going to get offensive production that they can't throw the ball downfield. I mean. When was the last time I threw up all over thirty yard? It's it's insane that they. He is so far gone backwards since his freshman year. I don't know what the Hell's happened happen But I mean I know the receivers on as good as what he had. What's happened? Rick is he doesn't have any receivers like he did. That's I I know I know. And that's that's the scary part. I'm I'm rooting for George. I hope they run the table but Ohio state looks awfully awfully good man. I mean that that's the best team I've seen so far and they have just Just blown out everybody. They've played so I don't know if you'RE GONNA play Utah in there or what but I I would not WanNa be a Utah going into that game and the last thing. I'll ask you Alabama if if Oklahoma loses the do they match Obama in Oklahoma well Probably not because you know I mean in the pecking. Order is interesting at the moment. So Georgia would very likely you get the sugar bowl bid and then there would be a conversation about orange in cotton and these are your as eh right If you're volver who do you want. Do you want Florida. which is come off a great season or you want Alabama which sputtered to the end and the enthusiasm level and the amount of players that will be available is going to be pretty thin? Yeah no I totally agree. I was just curious. What your thoughts? It's where I mean. Apparently we lost. We appreciate his call. Let's check out ban in Jacksonville. Hello Ben how's it going Paul Ball. Yeah Hey hey. They're good afternoon. I was just calling a asking about Tennessee's bowl Al- projection. Everybody's kind of all over the board about it and I was wondering what you thought. I'd really like to see him in the gator bowl. Play Michigan Live here already bought tickets. It gets actually. There's a gator bowl so wondering what you thought about that. Listen I am not a bowl expert. I think Tennessee. We'll get one of those really good bowls Down Down in Florida so I think that's a really good possibility. I think after Auburn and the usual suspects Georgia Alabama. I think Tennessee would be the most attractive team. You try to match up a match up you know the places. Where were you'll get a fan base and I mean I've heard Obviously the Memphis Bowl was Tennessee. But but I think Tennessee can do better than that. Yes Sir I agree. Also I wanted to talk about The Carolina Panthers is fired Ron Rivera and I think Tom Coughlin down here in Jacksonville or to be given him a phone call real quick and we can get rid of Doug marrone. You'll let me say this I I. I've gotten to know revere a little bit and I think Rivera will have the favor after through. After Sunday's loss to the redskins season was over. I mean there was five games left but nobody really is going to care. And now Ron Rivera will be sitting there With time on his hands and the ability to start Surreptitiously meeting with various team owners. And you know whether it's the there's whether it's Jacksonville whether it's the browns they're going to be a you and I both know there'll be eight or nine or ten you know the giants. Perhaps Rivera will have his ticket five five or six clubs. He's a really good coach. Yes Sir Thank you very much. Thank you Seth Walder Order will join us from. ESPN analyst and tell us what's going to happen tonight. And does Alabama still have a chance to get in the playoffs. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast welcome back and Always a staple of our Tuesday programs with that's Walter from ESPN analytics to give us a preview of what is to come tonight. Says always great to have you on to you a little bit of attention last week by thing Alabama can still get in with the law so I guess that's overwrite that's over pies you and I both on that bandwagon right yeah. I think it's time to get off. So let's talk about The SEC championship game and the variables. I mean. There's only a couple of outcomes that are possible but go through through the The variables on on what is going to happen Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Well I think the interesting thing when I look at our numbers. How close we think that this game is going to be if people see? LSU horses being better team but we agree with that but we will say Georgia. Their defense is so much better than Lsu's that they can almost make up the gap Lsu The advantage Lsu has on offense and then the key number no here is that Lsu Bill. Joe Borough ranks third in total. QBR Georgia ranks third in total QBR allowed so ultimately we give Georgia forty four percent chance to win this game which is pretty good if Georgia wins It's a it's a really easy decision for the Committee Committee both Georgia and Lsu will get in at Lsu wins. That's where it starts to get interesting. Is there any any chance that the LSU wouldn't get in With Georgia victory. I don't think so I think. LSU is basically in either way and just given what they've you know. How good would they look this season? And what they've accomplished beating Alabama and all their other ones of course to Lsu is probably safe either way is a little bit of an unprecedented situation. We haven't really. We have that conference championship loser. But I think it would be a good time to find out from the committee I do think. LSU would get in even if it lost and says the same thing applicable to the big ten championship. Richard Game if Ohio state loses yes. I think it is Ohio state just given what. It's done being undefeated to this point. If it were to lose to Wisconsin it would would be just fine to be losing to a two loss team. So it's not like Wisconsin is really a threat to jump them. I don't think so. Yeah we we feel quite confident that Ohio state still gets in even with a loss loss. Okay so let's let's let's play the chalk and these things occur clemson somehow someway supervisor Genu- who is now be tough from. I mean what what are we GONNA see Relation to Utah and Oklahoma. This is going to be a really interesting question. I'll tell you how this looks in our numbers right now. We Fever Oklahoma to get in but obviously could go either way the reason we like Oklahoma. The reason in the playoff Oklahoma is because they will have accomplished a little bit more and strengthen record. There'll be a little bit better in. FBI ultimately it saying they are slightly more deserving and slightly better than Utah However I will say this tonight for the first time? Well we're going to do is put the committee's rankings into the playoff predict that will probably raise up. Utah's number Bert. A decent amount. I would guess to make this basically a fifty fifty I would think that's my guess as to what the models going to say after tonight given that I I think a lot will come down to what these teams do in their conference championship. Game the way that the way that they play that could make the difference here. ultimately when it comes down onto it so let's let's look at a couple of more variables what obey or Beats Oklahoma if Belarus Oklahoma. Utah's probably in but I do want it. Just say that we we. We don't RULE OUT THE POSSIBILITY OF BAYLOR JUMPING UTAH getting in. Obviously that would be a really really really strong wind for Baylor. They would've been Oklahoma. They would've avenged their only loss. And you could make a case we still think. Utah's more likely. Don't don't get me wrong about that. I just don't want completely rule out that possibility. Talking about The variables says A. I know there's a couple of things floating around. I'm sure you've you've considered them. I mean like if everyone loses. I mean what's what I mean. What are the other other possibilities awesome abilities? If if I mean just go through it that we start seeing just massive losses here I Guess Utah Losing Oklahoma Losing Then what happens. Here's here's the like. I was playing around last night looking at the most with the most bizarre bizarre scenario we can get to right. So I think it's I think. LSU Wins and menu four upsets in the other games. At that point you're going to have. LSU Is going to be in Ohio states going to be in and then you're probably looking being at three spots between Clemson who are model would say doesn't really deserve it. Based on how easy schedule is Baylor and Wisconsin. It's constant believe it or not would maybe get maybe get it back until the conversation but I want to stress. How unlikely this is we simulate the Season Twenty Thousand Times? That only happened happened. Twenty three of those twenty thousand times so really can't put a probability on it old on what we would project that situation. It's a very unlikely scenario. I I think it would be. That would be a real chaotic one for the for the committee. That's for sure I don't see it happening but certainly fun to think about isn't it. Yes yes I like thinking about now. Let's talk let's finally before you go. Let's talk about the The FBI rank. I'm not sure what it means at this point but it is very interesting when you take a look at how it stacks up. I I think I think you're getting that probably Alabama being number three in our FBI rankings. This is something our old friend John. Hayes brought up on twitter and I've been hearing about it From from college football fans over the last few days the reason the reason that at Alabama's Alabama is number three. There's two things number one is forward looking. It's not taking into account or it's not saying exactly. Who did you beat? Who did you lose? It's how good are you going forward. I think think it's totally reasonable to say that at this point without to Alabama probably should slot behind Lsu. But what I will say this. I think that one really interesting thing at this moment is committee at the top of their protocol. It says identify the the four best teams right and we know that they don't really do that but this year is a perfect perfect example in both FBI. And I asked for this so any biggest there are at least five teams that are better than Utah in Oklahoma in some order. That's a high of state. Lsu Alabama Clemson and Georgia. So I do think that it is interesting when you think about it. I do think that is reasonable to say Alabama is probably probably a better team than Utah at this point. Okay the obvious question. Why then why would we put Utah or Oklahoma in the playoffs playoffs? Well if it were up to me I wouldn't consider team strength at all ultimately when I picking the four playoff because otherwise why are we going about playing these games. I mean we should i. I think reward winning and so I don't have an issue with Utah Getting in the playoff over Alabama. I just wish we did it without the sort of like Mirage of the four best as teams. We don't need to do that. No one no one says that the world series has to be the two best teams in baseball or the Super Bowl is the two best teams in the. NFL teams have to win their way A and earn their way into those spots. Cultural should be the same way to. Let's just be honest about it because like before you go. What's going to happen for a number one? What are the variables there? Yeah oh I assume will stay there but I I do think they ought to be number one they do deserve it when you wanted to. And strength of record but what they've we've done is quite different l.. In order for Ohio State. We're looking for Ohio state to have the same resume that Lsu does in terms of difficulty of being undefeated it would have to add a neutral site win over Georgia and have Lsu playing other game even get on Lsu's level so to me Lsu deserves that number one seat. I just I wouldn't expect to see it tonight. Great stuff. Thank you very very much We'll talk next week. Thanks Paul you got a great Great stuff we'll take a break more to come on this program including your phone calls at eight five five four to seven to eight five listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast gassed. No one's been part of more first days of work in car and in the same way rookies have to keep earning respect car. Heart never stops stops. Earning the respect of hardworking people like you from building rugged dear. That's tougher than any. I are worst day of work to reengineering the classics to outworked the Future Future. Trust your car hearts to keep doing their job long after you begin doing yours since eighteen eighty nine cards. Got Your back. Twenty four seven visit car heart dot com forward slash. CFP Back Dow signed for FANEUIL. Brought to you by Dr Pepper. Well we got another LSU Georgia would you meeting in the championship game second most frequent. I'm guessing behind Alabama Florida Georgia third different school to reach reach three straight. SEC Games. Joe Borough game starts at four and we'll be there on Friday. Joe Is in in Georgia. Hey thanks for taking my call. Thank you hey Yeah I'm GonNa Georgia Fan really sad about out this weekend. drivers Atlanta I'm not delusional Georgia. Fan like Florida friends. I think the Georgia's got a great chance to to win this weekend. Because I believe that defense feel doesn't championships which brings me to my question. This morning I was watching mcelroy and they were going through the different scenarios if Georgia were to win and he had Georgia and our George L. Shoe the two and three so. I guess my question is. Is that what you see happening. Do you see Georgia play and Lsu. And then turn around and Taylor again in the next game no. I don't whether whether they should or shouldn't I really believe this committee will look at Georgia lost to South Carolina and say you know what I know we know we've already gotten over that but we're not going to get over it now fraught again confluence of events could help them. But I mean it would take a lot of people I I mean I think clemson would have to lose for that to be possible fraud last question switching gears on. FSU Why why is that not the greatest job since I zero respect for the ACC like most those calling about out there scheduling and stuff just seems like the greatest place for that? He really should be a good job. I think it's just Gotten Stale and and it's like it's like a beautiful house it hasn't been kept up and I mean I think you're right now to me reading the tea leaves. It looks like it looks like They've tried to bring in a big time coach. I know they've been. They've gone after several. Major coaches big names. I don't think they've been able to get anyone So I think might Norville is there. Is there backup choice After they run out of major names but Yeah I mean I I. I don't know what to say. I mean I think Jimbo stay too long. taggered just never quite fit in got off to miserable start and I think the programs in moderate shape. I don't think it's in a disaster situation. It's just a great recruiting Plato uh-huh and then about the last time. ACC Championship really anything. Last time they see really had two great food ooh Either FSU Winston and obviously pooling state does play Florida. So they gotta deal but anyway anyway. Let's go go dogs. Thank McCall thank you very much Really Nice of you to call. Let's continue and check in with Ruth who who's in Tennessee. Hi Rose Hi. I've got a question. What do you say about Butch Jones being at Alabama. He didn't do any time extra. Good Poor Tennessee and I was wondering if I'm not on a move him away from Mr Stivers 'cause I I came very jinx. Thanks in them you can have. You had any other calls. That might not doing anything nine. Good for Alabama. Thank you ruth. First of all since Butch Jones arrived at Alabama Alabama has lost three games Butch Jones is an analyst He he's not playing a major role in the operation and even even if he were it wouldn't make a bit of difference I think Bush is a good coach. Surprises name has been mentioned for more head. Coaching jobs. Great to have you on. Thank you very much and donny. Excuse me Dennis is in South Carolina. Hello Dennis Hello Paul. How you doing today Sir? We're doing great. Thank you outstanding. Love the show. Listen to it every day or you check it out on TV.

Also for you to all your listeners. statement here Clemson would win the SEC. East and you Elaine. Every year if it was in it. I think it'd be much of a problem running through Georgia Florida every year. And it did have a question for you Mr Bond Bomb. Do you know clips in his eleven out of his last twelve verse. SEC opponents including the monumental forty four to sixteen beat down it though to Punt Bama last. Yeah Yeah you know I do know that Do you know why I'm glad she knew a few things ball been good listening to you reason. I know that every time Clemson fan calls in they feel they must say that listen I'm I am positive that we have as many Clemson fans watching and listening as almost any other fan base because they can't get enough of this they they can't get enough of all the attention that they get here because they don't really get any attention in the ACC because there's no interest in Clinton in the ACC because it's such a week league but thanks for watching Clemson fans. I'm all in. His great bomb is great. All the bomb is rape is rape.

Your scorecard won't hurt your credit. Learn more at discover dot com slash credit scorecard limitations apply welcome to how money i'm joel die matt and today we're talking about how to rebuild old rough credit score and yeah joel having a good credit score. It is so important used as we're gonna talk about why it is so important and of course how to rebuild it if your scores in the gutter a little little bit speaking of credit score. Let's talk equifax because did you look it up and see if you were one of the people affected yes i did not and by the way that free money right we it seems like based on the numbers. Almost every adult american was affected half the adults in the united states like half of anybody that had a social security number. Ah was affected so it's a big problem right and so we talked a while back about freezing your credit and how important that is and especially in light of essentially all of our information mation with the capital one breach with the equifax breach breaches everywhere i mean there's just breach fatigue essentially exactly and that was episode thirty eight by the way that we talked about freezing your credit and that is is incredibly important because that is the only way to actually prevent fraudulent accounts for being opened in your name and now because of the equifax breach and laws were put into place credit freezes free for us so that's great so everyone should be freezing their credit but now at least we can get recommend so we can get a little bit of payout from the equifax breach for for our information just being leaked out there and so people need to know about this website where you can go to make a claim is equifax breach settlement dot com willing to it in the show notes as well essentially they allow you to choose from free credit monitoring or up to one hundred twenty five dollars but there's also a cap on the overall amount that equifax is gonna pay a settlement that they reached with the f._t._c. although it was seven hundred million dollar payout but only a small percentage of that is actually going to us as those affected so basically basically the more people that sign up and make that claim well the payout decreases per person yeah so it actually being one twenty five is actually. There's a slim chance of that happening. It's unlikely for sure but in the other thing is that people instead of choosing one hundred twenty five bucks you can choose four years of free credit monitoring and and i've read some stories from papers around the country and they're basically pushing people in that direction. They're saying like the washington post is like here's why you need to choose the free credit monitoring over the money and i i have to respectfully disagree. I think if you were affected in any way by the equifax breach you should be applying for the cash payment not the credit monitoring and that's because because if you just basically assent to the fact that you have credit monitoring the you have some sort of credit monitoring you can take the cash instead and there are awesome free options nations for you when it comes to credit monitoring and on top of that if you have the credit freeze in place you really almost don't even need carter monitoring either monitoring is basically lee pointless at that point because let's just watch something that's completely locked down yeah yeah yeah and by the way the a couple of our favorite websites for you to sign up for free credit credit monitoring on if you do want to go that route our credit sesame and credit karma and willing to both of those in the show as well but those are just great sites for being able to monitor your credit and it's free there are all these services out there that want to charge you especially from the credit bureaus. Don't do it get the free stuff. That's all you need and then get. You're five dollar. Check in the mail when it finally it's more than five bucks. You mentioned the washington post telling everybody to actually take the monitoring instead that's because they want their money. If we tell enough people to go with monitoring that means we get a bigger check. Yep it's true. It's true so but people need to know man. They need another truth and also on that website. When you go there you will see some other options there for you to make a claim. You can see if you can actually prove that you were damaged. Somehow and you can prove it. You could be eligible eligible to up to twenty thousand dollars in damages and that's a lot of money. That's that's no joke right there. However i think the ability to prove that might be extremely only difficult and if that's something to pursue though be sure to check that out i think the standard of proving that the equifax breach was responsible for some sort of major identity theft problem in your life. It might be a hard standard to prove but if you believe that's the case and you've had trouble since the breach and you've had to do a lot to repair those issues. I would say it's totally worth filing a claim on the website and trying to get payment for the damages that you've incurred. Let's go and get to the beer for this episode man. We have whitelaw. Wheats this is by crank arm brewing company cody cody in raleigh sent this to us and it's crank brewing because that's a bike part. Did you pick up on that. Label has bikes bikes all over it and he sent it to us. This is well because he is part of a nonprofit called oaks and spokes and they promote bicycling there in the city of raleigh north carolina so be sure to check them out and i'm excited to share our thoughts loss on this beer at the end of this episode yet. Cody sounds like my kind of guy. This sounds like my kind of beer can't wait to drink it and let people know what we think and by the way this was a twenty eighteen gold medal winner in the week category at the great american beer festival has got some hardware on his shelf right yeah. That's a good one to be trying today so all right now. Let's let's get on to the topic at hand for this episode. We're talking about how to rebuild a rough credit score and we've talked before about the problems of having a bad credit score. You and i both agree that it's probably not good how much of our lives revolve around. This one scored that these three bureaus create on us without our permission. That's just not a great system but because the system is currently set up the way it is. It's really important. If you have bad credit the you work towards rebuilding it and so we've got a lot of information to share about how you can and get your credit back on its feet after a rough patch and we're going to try to hit a lot of important points today on that subject yeah you just want to touch on this and it's kind of unfortunate right right like you said that so much of our life revolves around the credit score but it really is so important a couple of reasons that great credit can be used to secure just a really good term for a home loan versus versus. If you have poor credit you might end up with crappy loan or you just might get turned down altogether. Bad credit could also cause you to pay more for your car home insurance as well and we've actually mentioned this on previous episodes but if you have bad credit when it comes to government jobs there's certainly security clearances that they will not allow you to have because of your credit because of the potential for security issues so that's definitely something to keep in mind. Yeah you might even have a hard time getting a place to rent because landlords often pulling your credit and making judgments about you based on that so yeah bad credit just all around makes things harder for you actually pulled your credit before we became friends just to make sure like you know you're my ilk just to make sure that we can hang you know there have been studies about dating relationships and how different credit scores mix i find that so fascinating that typically when asked the question about their her potential mates and their credit score oftentimes people want someone of similar credit score to them right they want to be with someone who's responsible in that way and by the way some issues of credit will linger longer for you like let's say you've had a bankruptcy in the last seven to ten years or a foreclosure in the past seven years well those things are going to affect actor credit for longer periods of time some of the steps that we're going to talk about today. You know what they'll still be able to help you if you've had a bankruptcy or foreclosure but what they can't do is wipe those completely clearly off your record also if you've been divorced it doesn't necessarily impact your credit score can depending on how things are divided up in the divorce and how your former partner treats join accounts that you're on together it can affect your credit score as well so they're all these things that could affect your credit score and could send it plummeting but there are a lot of ways to kind the right the ship yeah. Unfortunately there could be malicious spending. Is that what you're referring to. It comes to you know relationships going south or just even in the divorce decree right the finalization where maybe be. There's a lack of understanding over who's supposed to tackle what or your former spouse has issues with income and whatever they've been tasked with paying the bills they've been tasked with paying that you still still are joint on right they don't pay and so that can lead to hardship for you even though that's not supposed to be your responsibility and yeah that's a huge bomber and regarding timing of this entire are thing right. It's important to note that change your credit. Score isn't going to change and it's not going to happen overnight. You could likely see some movement in thirty to sixty days but it's it's not going to be an immediate thing but as you are rebuilding your score it's best to go ahead and keep track your score and sort of like we mentioned earlier. That's gotten so much easier. These days many credit card companies. He's will offer you just free monthly updates. I'm pretty sure all the major car carriers offer that yeah for me. We talked about this before too. It used to be shrouded in secrecy. I remember back in the today. I had like the one card from washington mutual. They gave me access to my credit score every month. That was like this is so great but now it's almost readily available through through almost everywhere now. They're all offering it but if you don't have a card or if you happen to have a car that doesn't offer that again like we mentioned at the beginning b. shirt at checkout either credit karma aside like that even credit scorecard dot com join both is a fan of that separate sites and if you have a discover card you'd actually link to it from your credit card homepage or your dashboard. Whatever you wanna call it and even if you don't don't have a discover card you can use the site for free which is exactly gives you your fico credit score which is really nice and just keep in mind though that every time you check that score. It doesn't hurt your credit score. This is is different than having your actual credit report being pulled by a creditor so don't feel nervous that this is actually gonna credit a little bit. You can go in there and look at it three or four times a day if you want to but maybe that's unhealthy to. Maybe don't obsess over the credit score. It is a nice thing to start getting under control to to have a good credit. Score is important but yet don't obsess over because you know there are those people out there who want the eight hundred and fifty cards. They want it to be perfect and we said to. That's kind of a fool. That has an eight fifty. Have you ever met anyone that i even if you achieve fifty for a second what's the point it doesn't matter it doesn't matter and then on top of that they're all these little things that could bump it down five six ten points and then you have to bump it right back up again so there's there's really no point to strive for perfection here yeah perfection. That's not what we're going for. We're going for like really good or good enough and we're gonna talk about how you can actually achieve that right right. After the break it turns out that every minute you spend updating your company's employee data and systems. Soms is a minute that you don't spend on your core job. Thankfully now there's rippling.

If you've got a rough credit score and you mentioned right before the break buddy that i'm good enough is a good thing to be aiming for not perfection right -actly yeah what is good enough though right yeah and that's that's a question i think they would pop up people's minds so let's say you are rebuilding a rough credit score. You're you're in the five hundreds or something like that. A couple of mile markers to keep in mind on your journey or scores of six eighty seven forty and six eighty kind of gets you at least in to this kind of mid mid tier of being able to get good rates of being back into a state of credit decency right and another great mile marker to set your sights on is getting score of seven forty. That's when you're going to really qualify for pretty much. The best rates from almost any lender out there so those are just good things to keep in mind if you're looking low you're the five hundreds is low six hundred eighty. Make that your goal and and we're going to tell you how you can hit that goal right now yeah joe basically there is a hierarchy of things things that affect your credit score and we're going to start with the things that affect your score the most the number one thing is to make sure that you are paying your existing accounts on time. This is gonna have the the biggest impact making up thirty five percent of your credit score. What that means is you do not want to miss a payments on anything. It's easy to set a recurring encounter reminder and even easier is that you can go to your credit cards for instance and you can set it up on auto pay. It's not hard to dislike full statement balance or it'll say total oh new balance but that's a way if you're forgetful to make sure that you never miss a payment. Make sure you have that setup to automatically pay. Yeah just makes sense that that's the number one thing thing influencing your credit score and if you can pay your bills on time over a long period of time that's going to have great ramifications on your credit banks credit cards lenders. They all like to see that you pay your bills on time because they like to get paid on time and the other thing is prioritized paying down your balances to keep them under utilization threshold of thirty percent that that might have sounded a little fancy utilization threshold but essentially the less of your available credit the you're actually using the better on your credit score so let's say you have a credit card that has a ten thousand dollar available credit limit and you're using eight thousand dollars of that available credit limit do much to right yeah. That doesn't look good. It makes it look like you're using in your credit irresponsibly or that. You just need that credit right. I mean the the banks don't mind having high limits of say ten thousand and twenty thousand dollars even maybe on a business card but they wanna see just use a little but other because that looks like oh. I've got all this available to me but i only need just a little bit. Don't you worry that's what makes you look the best right. If you have a ton of available credit but only use a little bit your your credit score goes up one way to kind of gain the system and make it look like you're using less of your credit than you actually are is to pay your bills twice a month expecially on those credit cards right instead of paying just once a month pay money towards that credit card balance before the statement even comes if you do that. It looks like you're using less of your credit when the credit card company reports your balance to the credit bureaus so it's kind of just a way to gain the system a little bit. Make your utilization lower and enhance your overall credit score and personally really. That's actually how i pay my credit card. I don't pay twice a month but i just pay it off at the end of the month. I actually don't wait for the statement to come through to me. The statements are completely worthless because by the time the statement david actually comes out. I've already paid the previous bounce for that specific calendar month and for us. That's just a way that we're able to keep our spending and check and make sure that we are sticking to the amount that we've budgeted aged for that specific month. Yeah the two things we just mentioned matt are really good for people even with good credit and so now we're about to kind of get into some of the things that are really applicable a bowl to folks with poor credit right now and getting a regular credit card can be helpful if you don't have enough available credit but the problem is if you have poor credit actually being approved for another credit card is in all likelihood outside of your reach. You're going to get turned down because your credit is really poor. So if if you don't qualify for a regular credit card there are other ways to begin building that credit back up the first of which is to get a secured credit card your local credit union is a potentially a great place to turn for secured credit card walk in there talk to someone at your local credit union branch ask if they have some sort of credit builder program available. It's so strongly consider applying for a card through them. Amazon actually has a new credit builder card as well now. What doesn't amazon have these days. I know right. It's incredible in one other their place to turn for credit card. If you have really bad credit is a website called pedal-car dot com p._e._t._a. L. card dot com and pedal hard offers a regular credit card to people with poor credit by using other factors to determine your credit worthiness in the way secure credit cards work. You know you can get those again through your credit union or even amazon evidently but they require upfront deposits because basically you have bad credit and so they want you to put money down essentially to prove that you have something on the line that you're not just gonna walk away and continue to damage your credit over time you can sort of take the training wheels off and you can get a regular card by proving that you can handle your credit well but essentially you you know that money down it just access collateral and that's what makes that card secured card think about your home loan. That's that's a secured loan because that note is against your house same anything with vehicle with a car loan. They have something that they can come after and in this case with the credit card if you put down the money and you get that secure card set up well. If you don't pay your bills well guess what they how that deposit to offset that risk yeah and by the way on that amazon credit card matt interestingly enough you can graduate to a real credit card through amazon in seven months of of handling that secured credit card well so it really is kind of this training wheels thing to get you to pedaling on your own on a bike. It's yeah we love those bike analogy by the way as always up for using a good bike analogy. Oh gee that's for sure something else that you need to do to help. Rebuild your credit score and you wanna make sure you're keeping your old cards. Open active the length of your credit history makes up fifteen percent of your credit score the previous two items. We've talked about combined. Make up sixty five percent so definitely those are the big heavy hitters but these other aspects are really important as well. Keep this cards open if you're tempted to overspend on this cards at that point they might be worth closing but hopefully if you're rebuilding your credit score. You're also taking control of your spending <unk> as well so hopefully that's not a problem and also you want to make sure that your periodically using those cards as well because sometimes certain credit card issuers they might even close an account if there's been inactivity and they don't actually have to tell you that they're gonna close your account. Some folks say to use it every quarter like every three or four months personally man i've used cards like once a year and that's more than enough i found in my personal use to keep an account active and maintain that really long history yeah. You don't want to cancel credit cards especially. If you are in the act of rebuilding your credit credit score closing cards takes a bite of your score and you're working towards raising it. That's just a bad move to make another important part of your credit. Score is your credit mix so as you have of different credit cards and different loan products that you're paying on every month that will naturally increase the mix of your credit which is helpful to your overall score and doing something like a credit builder. Loan can not only be helpful in establishing a history of payments but also help your credit mix. Look good so there's this interesting website called self lender dot com self lender essentially allows you to open a credit builder account and you choose the payment term dollar amount that you want to spend and every time you you pay a monthly payment towards the self lender account that you have opened your building credit history for yourself and once you've paid off the credibility account you have the c._d. That unlocks locks and the money's yours is even earning interest so self lender. Is this really kind of cool way around. It is like getting a loan from yourself and repaying it. It's kind of cool interesting tool. I think this is a super cool tool. Essentially you're putting your own credit score on layaway because like you mentioned you get these loans and it's held by self flender at the end of the term you and walk. It's almost like this little treasure chest where you've been sort of stashing away money except for it's your own money because you took the loan yourself but you haven't had access to it super cool ooh. I think it's an awesome way to like you said not only establish a history of making payments on time but to also improve your credit mixed because this is an installment loan which is different than revolving credit which is what credit cards are so the credit bureaus. They really like to see that. You have those two different types of debt. You're handling credit cards well that you're handling and installment loan well so rebuilding your credit score essentially in doing it on both fronts by tackling your revolving credit and then having an installment loan that you're paying off on time in full every month these are the ways that you're going to be able to affect your score and sea rise more quickly. Chances are if you have a pretty poor credit score. You're going to have to take a lot of these steps in order to turn your score around which means you're you're gonna see your credit. Score actually drop a little bit in the short term because you're applying for an opening a lot of new lines of credit. We shouldn't be overly focused on the short-term effects of our credit score. The goal is has to rebuild it for the long term because you have given your score enough time to rebound that way. It is looking healthy and strong way down the road when the time does come for you to apply for a mortgage. Maybe get some a new insurance rates that are going to be lower again. All the different things that are going to be affected by a better credit score a five to seven point drop for opening a new line of credit isn't that big of a deal when we're talking talking about <unk> score and the five hundreds or low six hundreds like you said we're looking at the long-term are and there are people that prey on folks who are looking to raise their credit scores there. They're promising short term fixes for upfront money. We're gonna tackle that and a few more tips on how to rebuild your credit score effectively right after the break you check things all the time like your email or social media but discover asks what about checking something as important as your your credit score while discover quick and easy with their credit score card which is free for everyone.

You should check to see if your current credit card is the best fit for you. Learn more at discover dot com slash credit scorecard limitations nations apply all right. We are back from the break joel. Let's now talk about some more specific things that you can do when you are repairing your credit score trying to rebuild it. Let's do it. One of the first things to do is to look over your actual credit reports now at the beginning. We talked about checking your credit score. Say eight through a credit card company but you also want to make sure that you pull your actual credit report on the report you can check for inaccurate information because there might be some incorrect information on there that could be hurting your credit score and you definitely want to make sure that you dispute that to get that off of your report yeah more than anything. You want to make sure that it's not inaccurate information. That's messed up and the only place to go in order to get your credit. Reports for free is a website called annual credit report dot com so make sure you're going there and not anywhere else most other places on the internet. You're gonna be charged money. In order to get your credit report at annual credit report dot com you get in for free by federal law and you can actually get one on from every credit bureau for free once a year so if you spread them out you can get a free credit report once every four months so that's actually pretty sweet. Something that you can consider is becoming an authorized user on someone. Else's card met someone who has a nicer credit score. Maybe new can join up. You've got a great score. I know you do you. It would be an equal three legged race if you and i linked up like that a screw but keep in mind that this could also hurt you if that person doesn't use credit well so in that a three legged race example. If you link yourself to someone who actually isn't that great of a racer well they're gonna drag you down instead of actually helping you out yeah. If i become an authorized user on your credit credit card matt and then you stop paying your bills that's going to hurt my credit score but if i have a bad credit score and become an authorized user on one of your cards and you continue continue to pay your bills on time and in full it's gonna make me look great. Which is the whole reason. I'm asking you to do that for me. Right yeah great with an authorized user is that you don't even have to get the card even just being linked to that account gives you the benefits so that's great from the person who does have the better score because it keeps any potential risk at bay so if someone were to be say an authorized user on card again you reap the benefits of using credit score but if you don't have the card while there's a chance of you say wrecking their credit and overspending ending causing all sorts of problems there sure there are still risks. I would say to the person that is allowing someone to piggyback on credit so if someone actually like asked a question in one of our ask h._t._m._l. Episodes hacia ella my friend jump on my credit by becoming authorized user to help improve their score. I would probably tell them. Don't do it just because because there are certain risks potentially associated with it by making them an authorized user on your credit card. You're giving them access to credit under your name even if you don't give them plastic there art things that could potentially happen if they get sent. Some of those big paper checks that you get from our credit card companies that say hey you can spend this money ahead of time. What i'm talking about oh yeah i've never used those <music> but me neither because they come with like a fee cheese so use those speaking of risk <hes>. There's even more risk associated with co-signing again. If you have bad credits it's getting a cosigner can help you to achieve getting a loan with rates. That are pretty reasonable. Maybe even score an apartment that you wouldn't be able to otherwise but there's even more danger for the cosigner though this is a pretty big ask and like joel said i wouldn't ever personally cosign for somebody else. If you do realize that you are putting yourself at risk make sure that you've got really good communication with person make sure that it's a good relationship and this is something that you can easily discuss where things to go sour and that you're ready to pay the bills in all honest yeah if the person that co-signed alone for doesn't because if you don't keep up those payments you're the one who's also going to end up in default another quick quick potentially helpful resource for folks trying to rebuild their credit score is something from one of the credit bureaus actually boost and granted. This is only one bureau doing this and it's probably the only in eight to ten point bump but for talking about a low credit score that bump can really help and so experience boost is free and it's worth considering if you're trying to increase your score basically what experience doing it's giving you credit actual actual credit an actual credit boost for paying utility bills that you're normally paying from your bank account just why is essentially linking that account and letting them see happening. That's an easy way for lots of folks to to get a little bit of an improvement on their score and if you are rebuilding your credit something else that you need to hear make sure that you are not paying someone to help rebuild your credit those sites those services typically are not going to be worth your money and oftentimes there scams it. It can be really tempting because we all want that. Magic bullet instead what we need to do is just change our habits. We needed to do that work in order to get our credit score back in a good range range so be warned once you start googling how to repair your credit. You're just gonna start seeing these ads and just run away from them. You just want to completely avoid these different quote unquote services this year and these credit repair firms are going to promise a lot and deliver very little often. They're going to ask her money upfront. They are going to promise it. They'll remove negative information formation from your credit report which isn't true. They just can't actually remove accurate information from your credit report so anyone that promises these things well asking you for money honey run in the other direction as quickly as possible. It's really nice to think that you can repair your credit score. Really quickly for a little bit cash will matt and i are telling you is that this is a process. It takes a little while right to see your credit score move. It could take a year or two to get it into the range where you feel comfortable to kind of cross those mile markers that we discussed earlier of getting to a six eighty or seven forty credit score to see if let's say you've had a bankruptcy that begin to weigh on your credit less over time. There's no quick fix to getting your credit back on track. It's going to take your intention analogy and hard work but if you follow some of the things we've outlined in this episode. You're going to get there. That's for sure yeah joe like a lot of great things in life. Oftentimes it just takes a little bit of time true all right. Let's take it back to the beer on this episode. We had whitewall wheat which was by mike crank arm ruins and into by cody in raleigh. What are your thoughts on this beer buddy. I'm going to tell you what i can see why this was a gold medal winner at the great american beer festival. This was a really really good beer. This style that i don't know if we've had it on the show. Maybe only once yeah if we've had it before. I can't specifically remember which one it was yes so this is a belgian wit beer and i will say i really really enjoy this beer typically. These beers have a lot of coriander in them and actually hate coriander. It's not one of my favorite flavors flavors. This one avoided the coriander and actually had a little bit more of a hot presence so i thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was light refreshing a little bit of juicy a little bit of hockey but the belgian yeast kinda came through on this beer man. I really like this one. I think it's a crushable summer beverage with a lot of flavor yeah well joel. I'm on the qena says it's an american belbow style wits and i think that american their title. I think that might indicate some of that hot presence which gave it that lighter flavor profile it's to me is almost like a belgian light. Beer didn't have as coriander flavors. The banana gone didn't have those belgian yeast all kind of stacking up and providing thing this more belgian style beer drink a lot cleaner almost like a light pills ner are lager almost but with some more interesting fresh flavors going on certainly a great beer for the summer and i could also see how it's associated with biking because this is the kind of beer i would totally want to drink after a hot sweaty long ride. Yeah no doubt this beer. You're completely right. It's like an american. A belgian got married in sixteen ounce beer can so mad props to crank arm brewing for this beer very very good and huge things dakota for setting it our way we really appreciate it man and you know this bright blue label. It actually looks really good sitting next to this creamy yellow glass of beer as well so anytime there's that interplay between the packaging and the beer. I'm always a fan of that. I always love win. The beer looks tantalizing in the glass and this one definitely did ari map quickly. Let's get to our final thoughts for this episode. If you're trying to rebuild your credit the two most important things you need to keep in mind are paying your accounts in full on time every month. Missing payments is going to be one of the biggest detriments wants to your score. Also prioritize paying down your balances lowering. The amount of credit that you're actually using is going to help that credit utilization ratio that we discussed that is going to make you look more credit worthy and it's going to have a big effect on actually raising your credit score and one of the best ways to both of those things. Joel is two lane yourself a secured word credit card. Those cards will require some money up front but that is how you score one of those check out pedal card in amazon's new credit card <unk> as well and also make sure that you are checking out some of those credit builder loans self lindor specifically a product like that will allow you to establish that history of paying your accounts on time time while at the same time improving your credit mix but above all don't pay anyone else to rebuild your credit score. It's not an easy fix. It takes a little bit of time and you. You can do this all right matt. That's gonna do it for this episode and listeners. If you wanna find show notes for this episode they'll be up on our website at how to money dot com and if you've found this episode helpful or entertaining or some combination of the both we would love for you to leave a review for us over at apple podcasts and you know what even if you've already left a review just leave another one.

This isn't a hell three D printing works when I famously fake quit and was replaced by Ben Bowen. No, no, no. This is the episode about the Panama Canal, so interesting, I love civic projects I love huge unwieldy projects that seem impossible to complete and the Panama Canal was and is that so I know you're gonna love this. When everyone how the Panama Canal works. Welcome to stuff, you should know from how stuff works dot com. Hey and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh Clark. With res always is Charles w Chuck Bryant, and that's Steffi should know the podcast the two of us together with a couple of nights. Voices. You know, what have been seen how big? Pan over and over. And I just whistled it. And Jerry nugget that stuck in my head. Yeah. When we're going up. My sister was singing it, and I realized that she was singing turn and run. Like what what she's like that song that van Halen song? Don't be an idiot. She thought this what they're saying. That's so interesting 'cause there's so many misinterpreted song lyrics famously over the years. But I'd never have heard Panama's being one of them is especially since the song is named Panama. Yeah. Yeah. Parentheses turn and run. Maybe they were talking about the people who are working on the early French effort to build a canal in Panama. He boy that didn't over so. Well, we'll get to that. Okay. Spoiler. The French didn't build the Panama Canal. I thought we were going to get to it right now. All right. Do you wanna talk about de Gama Tobel boa? Which one which one is George castanza's, favorite explorer was the gamma or belbow. Man. I it was one of the two to Gama was it. Yeah. I think so. Okay. That was a funny conversation though. So. Yeah. Balboa back in the day was was wandering around in a region called Darien, and he summoned to the peak there was like holy cow. If I look this away, I see the Pacific Ocean. NFL look at that away. I see the Atlantic Ocean or the Caribbean and the only thing between these two big bodies of water. It's this little it's Mus of land. Yeah. I'm gonna have a lot of trouble with that word. That's okay. Just say strip. Okay. So the strip of land here is the only thing in between in we should figure out a way to use this as a as a thoroughfare. Yeah. Yeah. Because this is it is connected to world. It does exactly at the time. The Spanish were trying to trade with the the Chinese. Yeah. And we're doing a pretty good job of in the Philippines and the best way to get to that. Was you come across the Atlantic and go into the Pacific. That's right. It worked very very. Well, yeah. And the idea of just having a place where you could go straight through rather than go all the way down South America. And then back up, maybe just mind boggling. Yeah. It's like you said it opened up the world this guy got it immediately. The problem was it would take about four hundred more years before anyone finally got around to completing it successfully. Well, yeah. In forget the rest of the world United States. Just like, hey, I want to ship this by boat from New York to San Francisco. How can I do that? I can just like kind of sneak around Florida. Right. Nope. Blocked. Right. Well, then what do I gotta do? You gotta go eight thousand miles nautical miles around South America to get to California. Right. Or you know, when you mean I wear Nicaragua. We were in a town in the nineteenth century was a waystation for minor forty Niners going onto California now, and they would sail onto Nicaragua ticket train and then ship out from Nicaragua up to California except the. The handful. That was like, I think I might just kick it here. Exactly. Yeah. I bet you there were some dudes. Oh, definitely. I'm sure. But yeah, there was there was a continent in the way in the idea that it was just this little narrow strip of land. And now that that made a lot of people say this is the place to be in the sixteenth or no the eighteenth century, the Scottish showed up. Yeah. They tried to establish an outpost failed spectacularly. Yeah. That's there's a great section in fourteen ninety three about it. Really? Yeah. The Spanish were there. The French were there they established pretty good outposts there. It was very clear that this little area which was then part of Columbia is now present day Panama was going to be a hop and spot because there was no thinner portion of the north or South American continents than this one in everyone need to figure out a way to get through. Yeah. And it wasn't as easy as like, hey, let's just dredge all this sand in let the waters meet because that's not too hard. It's like dense. Jungle and mountains in the continental divide. Yeah. So it's it's my first thought was like how hard could it have been didn't realize how treacherous that area was? Yeah. And I think that that Balboa and a lot of people who succeeded him thought the same thing like how hard is it. Sure. But it is like that's that continental divide. That's a tough thing to breakthrough. That's why they call it a divide. Yeah. Well, that's where two tectonic plates come together a mountain range in like, that's you're cutting through not one but two tectonic plates. Everybody wrap your head around that seriously. Let's talk about it. Because obviously we were successful eventually. But the first attempt was not in the first attempt was by the French. Yeah. Who in the eighteen twenties? I believe started to undertake a what is known as a sea level canal, which is basically they were gonna cut their way straight through the isthmus of Panama. That's right in canals were all the rage at the time because of steam technology, so all of a sudden. You didn't have to use the very cool and quaint towpath and have a meal walk alongside of a river or canal have you ever been to your little we? Yeah. A lot of now are like jogging trails and stuff. Right. You know? But you know, that's great. It makes for good. His share? Exactly, I don't see any meals on them these days. But it's great that people can use these Topaz now too. You know, like a nature trail. Yes. So the steam technology gave the French the idea that hey, man, we can we can build a sea level canal here because we can just dig right through it. We have steam we don't need the the mules for the Topaz any longer. All we need is some good steam shovels. We're gonna cut right through this continental divide right through this jungle. And as a result of the ambition twenty thousand people died. Yeah. And they're able to, you know, get a little little far thanks to the railroad. There in Panama believe it or not. It was the first railroad in the world to. Both sides of the continent. But wasn't very big. But it didn't need to be. Right. Great. But that allowed the French to get in there. They were deciding between Nicaragua and Panama at the time. And they said like you said we can do sea level. We don't need these locks. Yeah. If you look at a map of Nicaragua. And look at Panama like the idea of going through Nicaragua over Panama. It's nuts. Yeah. We'll explain how the locks work, but it essentially just raises and lowers your ship right for sure in a little like space station of water, that's flooded. And then drained, right, actually, that's luck works. So the the French organized this thing called the company Univer said do canal inter Assia 'Nique. Very nice. Thank you. And led by a guy named Ferdinand de Lesseps who had created a sea level canal through the Suez the connected the Mediterranean and the red seas. It was a big deal. Sure. So they brought him in. He's like sure we'll do another sea level canal and feeling good about this. Any like, I did the Suez canal with my eyes closed. Exactly, I can do this with one arm tied behind my back. Well, he didn't realize that digging through a bunch of sand is not like digging through two tectonic plates now and a bunch of jungle and malaria, and like I said twenty thousand people died as a result of this. Like, this guy was like, no, we can do it. We can do it. We're going to do a sea level canal. We can do it. And then finally it was like, I don't think we can do this. It was too late oughta lot a lot of people were dead from yellow fever malaria from accidents privately financed. So a lot of people lost a lot of money to exactly in this company goes under. Well, I tried to salvage it though. I he tried to hire a Gustaf. I full of Eiffel tower fame right said, hey, I think we need those locks after all and you're good at building big steel things. So can you help? And he was like, of course, I can. And then it was too late though, the business was done. Right. And they had done a little bit. Oh, they had done a lot. Like, they made eleven miles of canal up to that point, not bad. It's about a quarter of the way. They're right. But this was the when did they start Chuck the eighteen twenty s so Chuck as we understand it. They started in the eighteen twenties. Yeah. And this thing went bust by nineteen o two. I believe. Well, that's when congress I mean, they were bust before that. But that's when the US stepped in and said, hey will buy your junk. Oh, I'm sorry. Eighteen eighty eight so in like sixty s about sixty years. Yeah. They they had managed to dig eleven miles of canal villa bunch of buildings. They had a lot of equipment supplies. They're your and. Yeah, the US said a we smell. L A really really great opportunity. Yeah. And congress let's spend some cash we're feeling good about things these days. We're we annexed Hawaii recently. Yeah. Puerto Rico Philippines. What else how why not take over this very ambitious project while it's the American century by now, and we can stick it to the French at the same time. Exactly. So they did this in one thousand nine hundred to with the one stipulation that said, you know, what you guys have to Columbia controls Panama right now. And you guys have to work out a deal with them, and we tried and that failed. So he said, you know, what we're just going to overthrow Columbia then. Right. Give the control to the Panamanians. Yeah. The we supported this Panamanian independence movement. And yeah, threw off the shackles of Columbia in Colombia's. Like, what did you just do because we gain control of that we followed that congressional mandate and gain control of the Panama Canal zone. Basically, the swat. South that went through Panama. Yeah. Was considered American soil? Thanks to a treaty from I believe nineteen o to the hey, Brunell via treaty where Panama signed over the canal zone. There was no Spanish translation of the treaty. Yes. So basically, the US went in overthrew Colombian control of Panama supported Panamanian independent and then rob Panama Canal. Fell swoop in like a year and Columbia's like we'll I guess we'll start exporting cocaine him. Exactly, we'll get you back one day. So in the end, they paid about forty million bucks in one thousand nine four for the assets of this French company, which is a lot of money back. Then sure and about ten million dollars as this very cheeky article, by the way, did you notice? Cheeky little they offered they she referred to it as alimony of sorts to Panama ten million bucks to get gained the rights to this canal zone. And basically, hey, we're gonna run the show. We're gonna finish your canal from the eleven mile Mark to the you know to the ocean. Yeah. Where it belongs. And like you said, I think there was a certain amount of snub to it. Right. Probably. So, but they said, you know, what we gotta do. I though is we have to decide on if we can go see level. Like was it just the French were incompetent, or is it really impossible to DC level. Yeah. Like, we need to do our own due diligence, basically. And they did that. And Theodore Roosevelt, chose chief engineer John Frank Stevens in. He was like it's all about the locks dudes. Yeah. If you wanna canal here, you have to go over these mountains, not through them. Right. So here's the thing. And this is just brilliant. Because there was another problem with this is Smith's. And there's a thing called. This Charvis river. Yeah. And it is very temperamental. Yeah. It was prone to flooding all sorts of crazy stuff associated with this river. So not only did you have the continental divide in the jungle in the malaria to deal with once you completed it or you're going to do it this river. Sure. Stevens came up with this great idea that you go over the mountains and you go over the mountains you kill two birds with one stone by damming the river. Yeah. And you create a lake that will carry you over the mountains got tune like. Yeah, I'm sure there's not pronounce directly think about that. That is one of the most brilliant feats of engineering I've ever heard of the Panama Canal, but that specific aspect of it. Oh, sure. Damming the river to create a lake so you can go over the mountains. Yeah. That's just incredibly beautiful the whole thing to and at the time dude in the early nineteen hundreds is just like it's amazing that they can pull off. Yeah. Because they're all wearing knickers and stuff. Yeah. It's very there's some awesome documentaries out there, by the way, you should watch. In fact, there's one there's one cool just. Go to the YouTube in put in time lapse Panama Canal. Oh, yeah. And it takes you the full route in like a minute and a half. Nice said eight to ten hours, and it's kinda neat. You know, the boat goes in and sinks, and then let sinks lowers and then raises it tools along the lake for a little while. And then sinks and lowers and raises and yeah. Because like an eight to ten hour transit right from from deep water too deep water eight to ten hours. Yeah. Depending on your boat. I guess once you finally get clearance to go through the try. So he's dammed up. The river created got tune lake ships going toward the Pacific enter it Lehman bay and the Caribbean. Go through couple of locks upward in just like walking up steps, basically. Yeah. Except it's a big boat and it's done with water. And then they navigate through that lake for a little while. And then go toward Panama City through another series of locks and down down down over the mountains. And. And boom, you are connected to the rest of the world. Right. So when they when they agreed on the lock method. They had one other thing the handle. And that's why the Scott, it's maybe they were getting confused with locks meaning lakes, right? Maybe. Until they're like, we're all the locks like the, right? They're they're like, no. But we're the locks want. So there was one other big problem that had levelled the French effort, which was yellow fever. Yeah. Which you can be immune to if you're exposed to and childhood. But if you're from New York, yeah, you're not. So you go down to Panama, and you are stunned by mosquito and you die. The thing is nobody knew that it was mosquitoes until a guy named Ronald Ross in eighteen ninety seven studied mosquitoes in India and found malaria present in their stomachs and that it was transmittable through their saliva. They didn't know what it was. They were all sorts of different theories. Yeah. They thought it was maybe from like unclean living. Yeah. Whatever when they found out that it was the mosquitoes. They that changed everything. So they institute this really rigid anti mosquito. Program they cleaned up the country, basically and basically radically did Kim close to a radical yellow fever in the area, which paved the way for this lock system to be built yet. And you can thank Colonel William Gorgas for heading up that sanitation squad. And yeah, I mean it worked and that was the key because he can't have your workers dropping dead of yellow fever everyday. Right. They have to drop dead of a landslides. Yeah. Even though a lot of these workers were, you know, poor black people. I think eighty five percent of the people that died were black. Yeah. And a lot of people still died, but it wasn't like the twenty two thousand dropping dead from yellow fever. Right. You know? Right. Little still very dangerous project. Yeah. Mudslides, all sorts of drownings things like that. Hi there. I'm Jonathan Strickland. Host of the podcast tech stuff. I recently attended the IBM think two thousand nineteen conference where I learned all about the technologies that are shaping the present and future of business from artificial intelligence to hybrid cloud to creating a mesh communications network to help people in the wake of a natural disaster. I got a firsthand look at how tech can make a difference in business and society in keynote speeches and presentations, I learned about IBM's path to developing AI that will work with us to help make our jobs, more efficient and effective. I listened as experts spoke about challenges like identifying unwanted bias. And computer models pointing out that we must make sure systems arrive at their conclusions in a clear transparent way. So that we understand not just the answers we get from. But how the arrived at those answers. I also saw compelling talks about how the complexities of running large businesses often mean relying on a hybrid cloud, which is a mixture of public and private. Cloud systems and on premise IT, and that managing the data and applications across these clouds, while maintaining reliability and security is imperative I learned how developers need solutions that will allow them to build complex applications using data from multiple sources in a seamless way. Well, leaving the person on the other end of the app with a satisfying experience gives no hint to the complexities that went into it. I saw how IBM supports and open source approach and app development and deployment creating maximum flexibility and enabling rapid innovation. And I saw how this approach leads not just to abssador useful for business operations and customer interactions. But also to help people when they need it most as evidenced by the call for code initiative at the end of the week. I had a greater appreciation for the technologies that are powering today's businesses and changing the way the world works, and I got a sneak peek at the future in the form of quantum computing, five innovations helping transform the food supply chain and an AI. I system called project baiter that can engage in thoughtful debate with humans the message, I took from the experience was that IBM isn't just focused on leveraging tech to optimize business practices today. But delay the foundation for transformative technologies of the future. I think dear tech the video that kicked off the conference said it best. We have the power to do so much. Let's expect more from technology. Let's put smart to work to find out how go to IBM dot com slash smart. So we've got the the we've got yellow fever liked we settled on the lock system. Yeah. And jump Frank Stevens is replaced by a guy named Lieutenant Colonel George Washington goals, and he was a lock expert, and he looked at the plan. And he said, you know, what we're going to divide this up into three sections. That makes perfect sense. It does you get the Pacific section. That's going to be working from Limon bay. Which by the way means lime in Spanish. Did you know that I did not? So they're working from Lamon bay to the newly created lake get tune. Yeah. That was the Atlantic Division. Yeah. Oh, okay. You're right. So the Atlantic Division is synonymous with the Caribbean. Yes. And then so you've got the Atlantic Division working from Gibson to Lamont to get tune. You had the central division. This is the hardest part. Yeah. They're working in lake attune to basically. Really create a channel through this continental divide. Yeah. You don't have to cut sea level. But you you do need to make sure the ships aren't going to like run aground in the mountain cheer. And then you have the Pacific Division, which is working from the end of the continental divide pass, which is Pedro Miguel walks down to the Pacific, right? That's right. And like we said, the railway the Panamanian rail railroad is there, and we had like awesome gear at that time. It was no longer, you know, men with chisels and sledgehammers and stuff it was steam shovels rock drills dynamite. And they moved ninety six million cubic yards of earth and rock, right? Which is seventy three million cubic meters. That's right. And it was really hot though, and it was pretty bad scene. And they call that hell's gorge and it was dangerous. And that's where I think most of the lives were lost on this second pass. Yeah. And those definitely the hardest work. But they made it through and by nineteen fourteen a crane that was used in the construction of the Panama Canal was the first thing to ever make it through all the way. Yeah. They were like sweet. Yeah. And eight months later, it was open for business as far as I understand. Yes. Big business. Should we should we walk people through or I guess swim people through? Yeah. I think we should okay. You approach from the Atlantic. You go through the GATT, tune locks is gonna lift your vessel up eighty five feet. Jess pretty awesome. Yeah. And take you to get tune like very nice there. You're gonna wind through that channel for about twenty three miles then entered the Gallard cut, the eight miles through there, and you're gonna reach the Pedro Miguel locks and then they're gonna low your ship about thirty feet to the Miraflores lake. You're gonna pass through this. It's about a mile long. And then the two steps Miraflores locks are going to return you finally back. C level to seven mile passage from there to the Pacific and all told you've gone fifty miles in about eight to ten hours. Yeah. And mind bogglingly I saw that it takes fifty two million gallons of freshwater to move a ship from one end to the other fifty two million and they're getting all that from lake catoon. Yeah. And it's just it's just recycled back into the system. Right. No. What does it what happens to it? They lose it. Most of is it it's either pump back in either goes flows back into like tune or else it flows out into the oceans, okay? Which is not necessarily good. They're worried that get tuned may become brackish. Oh, yeah. And like Tunas now the fresh water supply of Panama, and it they're using a lot of it up. Yeah. Well, it's always presented a bit of environmental quagmire, right especially with their plans to expand which will get to. But right now, they have to traffic. They're looking to make that. A three lane highway which would actually adding that third lane will double the amount of traffic. Yeah. Which is crazy. You would think it would increase it by third. Yeah. I don't know. Maybe it's wider. Oh, maybe allows for two ships at a time. They didn't jam like eight in there. Once I don't know. I do know that if you are a large enough ship. They don't let you drive yourself because you know, you got one drunk sea-captain, captain. And all of a sudden, you're locks are out of commission. Right. So they use electric towing. Locomotives to those big bad, boys. Right. And we should say just briefly with the locks if you want to move ship upward, you flow into a lock the lot closes behind you and it fills up with water. Yeah. So that you can float over the lip of the next higher. Lock that the gate closes behind you with that one and the fills in with water and so on and so forth. It's remarkably basic. Yeah. And then the opposite takes place when you're stepping down. Yeah. It's just basically going into a little square pool raised. Or lowering the water level. So you can go up or down. It's really neat. Yeah. And if you've got a minute and a half to kill he can take this year right in high speed on the YouTube. So like we said the US used gunboat diplomacy to and I guess good old fashioned old timey. Nineteen to swindling cheer to gain. Control the Panama Canal zone, and it had complete control until nineteen seventy nine when Jimmy Carter Malays forever. Simpson's. They unveil a statue Jimmy Carter, and it says Malays. And one of the towns people go, he's history's greatest monster. Oh boy. Anyway, Carter negotiated with the leader of Panama at the time. General Omar Torrijos Herrera and said, hey, how would you like this thing back give twenty they said, hey, we'd like this back. I like to think of American magnanimous, okay? Sure. So we said, you know, what we've had it for this long. Plus, plus, we're talking Carter, it's entirely possible. He just started contacting people and said, what is the US have that we can sell or give back. Good point. So yeah, he he he sold like one of the the presidential yacht was sold by him. A really why? Because he thought it was frivolous. Yeah. That's awesome in Panama Canal. He's like how about this? Let's get rid of a significant portion over our economy anyway, gives it back after twenty years and on December thirty first nineteen ninety nine which is why I suspect they made it a twenty year deal. Yeah. I mean, they had to transition. You can't just hand the keys over and be like, all right. Your crew. And right, but not only that like why not a fifteen year dealer and eighteen dealer tenure they went with twenty because it was going to end on December thirty first one thousand nine hundred new millennium actually that in start till two thousand one that right? But you know. Is symbolic right. Okay. So the Panamanians takeover and immediately start taking flack because the aging. Traffic's jammed up they've done a good job though. It's just by nature of how things are these victims of circumstance. Yeah. Five percent of the world's trade goes through the Panama Canal. We sold them a lemon of canal right there, the millionth ship went through in two thousand ten a hundred and forty four thousand ships go through a year, and it's a very narrow little strip. Yeah. You know, that means. Waiting in line. A lot of waiting in line. Plus also, there's an upper limit to the size ship that can go through. It's called Panama panamax is the is the ship size. I'd never heard of them. Yeah. What a great name for the biggest ship that panamax what could be bigger than that. Well, these ships that are called post panamax exactly a lot of shippers are like, you know, what I'm tired of waiting. It's actually going to be more economical for me Bill the ship that can't go through the Panama Canal, but can hold a lot more. And I'll just sail around the the lower part of South America. Yeah. And that's kind of increasingly happening. Plus Nicaragua threatened to open their own canal. So Panama says, okay. Well, let's let's hold a referendum and see if we can expand this thing and modernize it and save the canal and Panamanian said, yes, let so in two thousand six they approved this third lane. Yeah. That's expected to be opened by two thousand fourteen Nicaragua's still planning a canal. I don't know. I don't know if that shot it down and not well, and there's also talk now of a northwest passage. Thanks to. People might say is climate change and melting ice caps. There may be a way to get there by land onery. Hudson is clapping in his grave. So we'll see if that happens. I don't know. I didn't get a chance to really look into that research. And like how real is that even still the Panamanians will probably make their five point two five billion investment back eventually, although it took the US good forty years to make four hundred million back. Yeah. Yeah. I think the nineteen fifties was when they finally broke even. Yep. That's crazy. Yeah. And you break even by charging a toll. I don't think we've mentioned that you, obviously like any way station or or. Passage. You got to pay according to how much stuff you got. It's like, I think the record is. I looked at up one hundred and fifty thousand or something. Yeah. They do it by Tonneins. The thing is is if you are carrying a lot of really expensive natural gas, right? You're going to pay a lesser toll than if you're carrying a bunch of less expensive or even equally expensive coal which isn't fair. And if you're if you're transporting a lot of raw steel, why should you pay more? So they're they're trying to figure out a new toll system, especially for the newly expanded version of the canal that takes into account the value of the of what's onboard rather than just the weight. Right. So they should make a little more money that way. Yeah. I don't know if this is still accurate, but the record that I have is one hundred and fifty three thousand dollars six hundred one hundred fifty three thousand six hundred sixty two dollars and the cheapest was when a dude swam across it. Anyways, like one hundred and fifty pounds. And so they charge them what thirty six cents then beckoned in nineteen twenty eight Richard Halliburton. And he swam the Panama Canal, and I guess it was some Republican. I'm sure people love doing stuff like that back then. But if you look at this this high speed route on YouTube, it's pretty neat. And there's a lot of times we like oh look out for that boat. And then it turns out, okay. Yeah. There's a lot of activity out there. Yeah. You know? It's not a pleasure cruise. Well. No. And it's not one ship at a time. They they have like you said two way traffic, right? That's right. And they try to keep them going through as efficiently as possible, and I should say also the the the new locks that they have. Yeah. Conserve about sixty percent of the water used. So they'll address a lot of environmental concerns. Hopefully, I got a couple of facts here. If you're interested the entrance to the canal, the Atlantic side is twenty two and a half mile. Miles west of the Pacific entrance which is interesting. Okay. Because as a unique shape and then. The locks themselves are seven feet thick each. So if you're wondering how to keep out that much water like to to basically the oceans, right? You need to do it with seven foot thick concrete ninety two percent of the workforce is Panamanian right now, which is pretty great. And it's been all I got sixty million pounds of dynamite was used to construct this thing. There's some nice stance. Chuck. Yeah. It's not bad. Cool anything else? Now. The rest of these are kind of boring Panama Canal forever. If you want to learn more about the Panama Canal, you can read this very good article on how stuff works dot com. Type in Panama Canal or turn and run canal. See what happens when you do the ladder? Hold on. Let's let's take a message break.

It is time for a listener. Joshua mccullers listener mail about what's new guys currently on the seven train heading cleans for Manhattan after a long day of working as an auditor at a CPA from as usual listening to podcast this time. It was the death mask episode and concluding with some listener mail in. This instance, it was from Martha regarding peak oil, and I think Martha was talking about the auditing of oil reserves. And he says this. She was correct for the most part regarding the audit of oil reserves held by entities who stocks may be publicly traded on the stock market. Just one thing I was so aghast by that. I felt needed to type this for my phone as I'm on the train still the SEC does not perform any audits of its own on these companies it is firms like the one I worked for that audit. These companies allbeit under SEC guidelines, actually PC a public company audit oversight word God. Outlines if you want to get the SEC may perform type about it when they do. They're usually auditing an audit firm or an audit that his already been done by an audit firm as part of some kind of investigation. So they'll audit an audit the audit. I got. I got on. I've actually been through one of these audits, and it is no fun at all. For some reason. It seems everyone who works at the SEC is what you stereotypically picture as account with no humor. Plus the word audit loses. All meaning when you hear. That's right. I digress though. If you pull up at ten k annual filing for any company can see in the audit opinion, the audit firm, which perform the audit for that particular year that clears things up in in Henry, I'm not sure if that cleared it up, but if I was an accountant, I would probably say, yes. Thank you very much. Henry those very nice of you to correct somebody who was correcting us. Yeah. Sorry this. Thank you seven train, man.

This was for the greater good Charlie had been sending them on these nightly missions for the better part of the summer of nineteen sixty nine. They needed all the money and valuables they could get something was coming.

Wherever you're listening it really does help on August eighth and ninth nineteen sixty nine followers of cult leader Charles Manson drove into Los Angeles and motored seven people seemingly at random among them was actress Sharon tate who was almost nine months pregnant at the time the Manson family murders are among the most infamous in the American cannon and change the socio political mindset mindset of the country forever Manson manipulated and weaponized the counterculture movement and captivated the American public with chilling sentiments like quote? I am only what you made me. I am only only a reflection of you but less well-known are the followers who committed these acts twenty one year old Susan Atkins Nineteen Year Old Leslie Van Houten Twenty One year old Patricia Krenwinkel Twenty Twenty Year Old Linda Ca Sapien twenty six year old Catherine share and twenty year old Lynette squeaky from me this week we'll delve into the lives of these women and find out how they came to live with the Manson family on the spawn ranch. Just outside Los Angeles next week will cover the two night murder spree that left seven dead and killed the counterculture movement Charles Manson was born to sixteen year old Kathleen Maddox on November Twelfth Nineteen thirty four he entered the world and unwanted child. His mother cared so little for him that she didn't even bother naming him on his hospital records to this day. His birth certificate reads no name Matic's if one needed further proof of her indifference Kathleen once took Manson to a bar when he was still a toddler a woman sitting eating a few stools down commented on how cute he was to which Kathleen replied by me a pitcher of beer and he's yours. The woman laughed and Bader the beer assuming kathleen was joking but an hour later Kathleen in got up and walked out her two year old son still sitting on the bar next to an empty pitcher Manson was later returned to his mother who was less than thrilled that the police had been able to track her down. It might seem unlikely likely that nobody called child protective services but in nineteen thirty six the U._S. was still recovering from the Great Depression and nobody had the resources to feed extra mouths. Children were no better off as wards of the state than with neglectful parents so back to Kathleen he went over the next thirty years Manson's life would get no easier he would be in and out of jail constantly for sex trafficking forgery the and theft in nineteen sixty he was arrested for pimping and spent the next seven years in McNeil Island prison by the time he was paroled in San Francisco in March nineteen sixty seven the thirty two year old vagabond bond was broke a hardened criminal and nothing short of psychopathic Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here just a reminder. She is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thank Sammy Tammi in an article for medical daily journalist. Alana gloats reported that Manson showed signs of antisocial personality disorder throughout his life according to the D._S._M.. Five people with A._P._D.. Show disregard for the feelings of others and lack of moral responsibility the Mayo Clinic ads people with antisocial personality disorder tend to antagonize manipulate or treat others harshly or with callous indifference indifference. They show no guilt or remorse for their behavior. Psychopathy is an extreme form of A._P._D.. Hallmarked by manipulation impulsive and often aggressive behavior and a lack of regard for rules many psychopaths paths Manson included learn to mimic socially appropriate behavior to get what they want from people incapable of reform prison only exposed him to people who taught him how to improve his manipulation tactics. He learned how a target vulnerable women from pimps he met at McNeil Island Prison Soon Thirty two year old Charles Manson was nothing short of a snake charmer when he was paroled in nineteen sixty seven he he moved to San Francisco the place for the counterculture movement hippies swarmed the Haight Ashbury neighborhood seeking love acceptance and any drug available Manson arrived at haight Ashbury to discover throngs wrongs of men and women in their late teens and early twenties largely disillusioned by the Vietnam War and the materialism and traditional religious values of their parents generation the counterculture movement had turned away from established religious institutions and began looking for more spirituality based guidance. Many young people began following gurus who seem to have tapped some kind of nirvana or higher calling without realizing it many of these free spirited spirited hippies broke away from one established religion only to fall into smaller more radical religious groups with Charles Manson's magnetism and knack for public speaking he styled himself as one of these gurus and soon garnered himself a small following he traveled up and down the coast making contact with women around Southern California drawing them into his fold. One of his earliest followers was a young mousy redhead ED named Lynette Foamy Lynette has had many claims to fame over the years including her attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford in nineteen seventy five but before she was a failed assassin she was Charles Manson's right right hand woman. The oldest of three children Lynette was born on October twenty second nineteen forty eight in Santa Monica California her mother Helen was a homemaker and her father William was in aeronautical engineer from a young age Lynette proved that she was destined for notoriety as a kid. She was a star performer in a dance troupe called the West Chester Larry. It's the troop was so good that they were invited to tour all over the country even performing at the White House when Lynette was about ten Lynette was a fairly good student usually getting as and BS and had an interest in theater in fact it was through her junior highs theater department that she met the first man she would ever fall in love with a young Phil Hartmann who would later gain fame as a comedian on Saturday night live for the record. It doesn't seem like Lynette and Hartman ever dated she was enamored with him and always seem to be tagging digging along behind him. He didn't mind the attention but the affection was clearly one-sided. Limit shared equality similar to many of her future Manson family sisters a near constant need for validation specifically from men and according to author and researcher Bruce Brian's. These behaviors are often learned in childhood. Both men and women are trained from a young age to seek male attention especially in assist gendered Patriarchal Society like. Like the nineteen fifties United States in most family units at the time the father's attention was more scarce making it a hot commodity Lynette herself has confirmed that her father was often wrapped up in his own work and studies passionate about his job but emotionally unavailable to his children. According to Brian's women with emotionally unavailable father's often go looking for attention from their male peers but if they don't find the attention in romantic romantic partners some of these women Lynette included can become addicted to chasing approval from emotionally unavailable men. This kind of attention is usually lackluster at best but to Lynette it was better than no oh attention at all. She didn't mind having to work hard for divided attention equality that would serve her well in the years to come lynette graduated high school in Nineteen Sixty six after which her story gets a little little murky by age eighteen she was homeless living on the streets near Venice Beach California. Little is known about what drove such a wedge between her and her family that she ended up homeless just a few miles from where if she grew up biographer just braven has suggested that Lynette was sexually abused by her father which could have been why she felt unsafe living in his home but Lynette has denied these accusations. Whatever the reason by the time I'm she met Charles Manson in nineteen sixty seven nineteen year old lynette had hit rock bottom? She recalled sitting on a park bench by the beach. When a shaggy haired man approached her and said named Charlie the connection connection was instantaneous Lynette and Charlie talked about all sorts of things her past her feelings of abandonment about feeling trapped by her homelessness and Poverty Charlie listened and was empathetic? He said he understood stood Lynette. He adjusts spent nearly eight years trapped in prison for most young women. This would have been a red flag but no man had ever given Lynette this much undivided attention. Even her boyfriend had a way of making her feel misunderstood and lonely within their relationship then Charles Manson stood up and told Lynette he was on his way north to visit his mother he pointed to a small gaggle of people nearby and said that they were coming with him if if she liked Lynnette could come to with that Charlie and the group began to walk away Lynette was already tethered to him as he started to disappear down the block she could feel something tugging at her urging her go after him without thinking she grabbed her bag and took off down the street that Balmy Day in nineteen sixty seven and every day since Lynette fromm e did the thing she did best follow a man Dan who would never quite let her catch him Lynette settled into life with Charles Manson quickly. She was only one of several women with whom Charlie was intimate all of whom seemed vulnerable and directionless unless many of them were drug users or had hit rock-bottom Lynnette believed Charlie just wanted to protect them and take care of them a belief she still holds to this day. Lynette and Charlie soon began a sexual relationship along with a third member of their little group twenty-four-year-old Mary Brunner at First Charlie's polygamy made lynette uncomfortable especially as he began sleeping with newer members of the family some of whom were as young as thirteen but sharing Charlie's attention was better than being outside the family she got over it in truth. This was just the reaction Charles Manson was counting on he had a knack for spotting women who would let him push. I their boundaries learn from the pimps he met while serving time women who felt devalued by other men would confuse his manipulative behaviour as love in fact former Pimp Galen Harper once explained to k. five new Seattle that when grooming a woman for the sex trade he would seek out a woman with little confidence and work to gain her trust then he knew she would be hooked on him for the long term tragically most of Manson's followers. We're from broken homes. He prayed on women who consider themselves damaged an unwanted. He used sex to fabricate intimacy with these women knowing they would work to keep his attention. It was these skills that helped Manson Lure Patricia Krenwinkel who he renamed Katie into the fold in less than two years Charles Manson would completely remake Katie into a murderer in a moment the Manson family lays down roots and spreads its wings Hi there. If you enjoy this episode on the women of the Manson family search female criminals on spotify and give us a followed find more episodes now back to the story Patricia Krenwinkel was born on December third nineteen forty seven near Los Angeles. Her story is similar to many of the women who eventually followed Manson she felt lonely and unwanted and was searching to belong Patricia was bullied for most of her childhood for being overweight which made her feel isolated from her peers. At fifteen in she lost her virginity to a boy she thought had feelings for her only to never hear from him again after that she became addicted to diet pills supplied to her by her older sister Charlene who was a heroin addict but once Patricia lost considerable weight her pierce started bullying her about the excessive dark hair that covered her body then to top it all off her parents divorced in nineteen sixty five when she was seventeen and by the time she graduated High School in Nineteen Sixty six Patricia self worth was in the gutter she felt ugly and unwanted so much so that she decided no man would ever love her and turned her focus toward becoming a nun she briefly enrolled at springhill college in Alabama a Jesuit Catholic school with the intention of studying catechism but she dropped out after only one semester and returned home to Los is Angeles. She tried teaching catechism briefly but ultimately abandoned the idea of joining the convent and found a clerical job in L._A.. By the time she met Charles Manson in nineteen sixty seven nineteen year old Patricia felt felt utterly isolated from her peers and rejected by her family. She wants said quote. I never ever developed a sense of who I was and where I was going and what I wanted to do I wanted to please. I wanted into feel safe to feel like someone was going to care for me. I hadn't felt that from anyone else in my life she would soon meet the person who would easily low her into a sense of security however false one one night in September nineteen sixty seven Patricia came home to find Charlene in the basement with a group of her friends including a shaggy-haired Guitar player named Charlie Charlie immediately picked up on Patricia Insecurities Securities and pounced the two slept together that night and Charlie told her she was beautiful after nineteen years of being teased for her looks Patricia was so moved by the sentiment that she was brought to tears Charles Manson made her stand in front of a mere naked and call herself beautiful which only further broke down her defenses. She told Charlie that night that she would follow him anywhere and became the third third woman in his little traveling caravan she lynette Foamy and Mary Brenner became the Manson Girls Susan Atkins would soon join their ranks Susan a San Gabriel California native suffered a similar pattern of neglect. Her father was an alcoholic and her mother died of cancer in nineteen sixty three when Susan was fifteen Susan had always had a strange relationship with her father but without her mother as a buffer their relationship quickly deteriorated she moved out and fell in with a bad crowd eventually doing three months of jail time for armed robbery when she was released in nineteen sixty seven nineteen year old Susan moved to San Francisco where she took up topless dancing and selling drugs to make ends meet later that year she met Charles Manson when he came to visit a commune. She was staying in soon after their chance chance encounter Susan's Commun- was raided by police largely because it was more a drug infested flop house than a residence and Susan quickly found herself homeless Manson invited her to join his group and he established his own commune in San Francisco. The Manson family was officially born from its inception Charles Manson was always about ten years older than his average follower. He acted like a father figure to them which provided them with a sense of security they had lacked at home of course most upstanding fathers do not initiate sexual relationships with their daughters but this never seemed to bother the Manson girls many of whom were well underage but as their little family grew aspiring musician Charles Manson realized he would need a bigger place to stay somewhere he might be able to make it in the business in nineteen sixty eight he found wound such a spot and he and his little collection of broken souls headed south to the city where stars are born Beach Boys Drummer Dennis Wilson picked up a few of Charles Manson's family members members who were hitchhiking into L._A.. The hitchhiker's introduced Wilson to Charles Manson and the two men met and became fast friends. Manson was an aspiring musician and Dennis Wilson liked his energy and the Gaggle of women at has every Beck and call the to hit it off so well that Dennis agreed to allow Charlie and his followers to crash at his home for the course of the summer not only that but Dennis confided in Manson that he was growing tired of the beach boys sound and preferred the songs Charles composed he recorded a few of Manson's tracks and even introduced Charles to a record producer named Terry Melcher Melcher was one one of the biggest producers of his day. He's largely credited with shaping the California rock sound that has become so indicative of nineteen sixties counterculture and when Charles Manson and Dennis Wilson visited him at his home on Siello Dr. Dave meltzer seemed genuinely interested in Charlie's music he even tossed around the idea of making a movie about Manson's commune Manson left never having felt so high finally he was breaking into the music as a business and proving himself to be the rotten God he always knew he would be he had everything and impending record deal a gaggle of devoted followers and a swanky Hollywood home where the party never stopped opt but the endless lifestyle of sex drugs and more drugs soon war on Wilson who estimated that between food medical costs drugs noise complaints and property damage the ever-growing Manson family family was costing him around one hundred thousand dollars within just a few months. The Manson family was never a particularly large Kalt at its hide it only had about thirty members but they took over every nook and cranny any of Wilson's home until finally had to kick them out at the end of the summer in nineteen sixty eight the budding Manson family settled into spawned branch and abandoned movie said owned by George Spot and he agreed to allow the family to live on his ranch in exchange for upkeep of the property and his pick of the Manson girls spun is also credited with giving twenty year old Lynette Foamy the nickname squeaky after the noises she made when he grabbed her Manson loved the nickname and from that moment on the moniker stuck. It's widely insinuated that squeaky paid the families rent by having sex with spun on at least a few occasions but squeaky rickie has neither outright confirmed nor denied this it seemed as though the Manson family was back on the up and up even more thrilling Dennis Wilson Call to say that he was bringing Terry Melcher up to the ranch to hear a few more of Manson songs Charlie was thrilled and by all accounts Melcher did like his sound but he still had reservations about working with Charles Manson Melcher it seemed was a much better judge of character than Dennis Wilson Melchor left the ranch falsely promising to call Charlie soon when the call failed to come Manson spiraled into a rage he went looking for Dennis Wilson only to discover that Wilson wasn't home fuming he drove to the home on Ceelo drive where he had I met Melcher but unbeknownst to Charlie Melcher and his girlfriend had vacated the house months before it was now being rented to Director Roman Polanski he and his wife Sharon Tate Manson and Polanski seemingly had some kind of altercation at the home mostly because Manson refused to believe that Melcher no longer lived there he loved more venomous than ever and went back to spawn ranch to lick his wounds following a series of outbursts and threats Dennis Wilson and Terry Melcher severed ties with Manson completely leaving his dreams of music stardom dashed but Charles Manson was always one to hold a grudge he projected all of the hate and neglect that he had been carrying with him for years onto the industry that had most recently rejected him and for the first time everything everything he hated had a physical address one zero zero five zero see yellow drive he committed it to memory and promised to be back throughout the rest of nineteen sixty eight and into nineteen sixty nine Charles Manson put all his energy into gathering new followers and bringing them to live on spawn ranch. The first of these was Katherine share of French American one woman born in Paris on December tenth nineteen forty to her parents were members of the French underground during World War Two and died of suicide to prevent themselves from being taken by Nazis. A newly orphaned Catherine was sent sent to a French orphanage where she lived until nineteen fifty when she was eight years old at this point she was adopted by a Frenchwoman and her American psychologist husband shortly afterwards the family of three relocated to Los Angeles US California but her new set of parents would later abandoned her in much the same way as her birth parents in nineteen fifty eight when Catherine was sixteen her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and decided to end things things on her own terms she to died of suicide. Her adoptive father was overwhelmed with grief and by that point had gone completely blind given everything he needed a caretaker and Catherine quickly filled that role but their relationship was never the same after the death of Catherine's adoptive mother her adoptive father grew distant and cold. She felt rejected by him especially after he remarried leaving teenage Catherine without much purpose or direction in life she graduated from Hollywood high school in nineteen sixty feeling more isolated than ever as her peers began to enjoy the free love movement that defined the decade she searched for a way to fill avoid in her life. She wanted to feel loved feeling anxious and alone she enrolled in college and spent the next three years trying to find some direction during that time I am she was married and quickly divorced which only left her feeling more lonely than before the relationship she indulged in overeating drugs and free love in an attempt to compensate by nineteen in sixty three twenty one year old Catherine was utterly listless. She embraced her new personas a flower child and began drifting around southern California ever in search of a party. She would often wind up back in L._A.. Where where for lack of something better to do she would take roles in soft porn films? One such acting role was in a movie called Ram rotter onset Catherine met Bobby Beausoleil a struggling musician from Santa Barbara and the two became fast friends bobby also introduced catherine to his wife Gail. The three hit it off so well that Catherine began living with them for the first time in years. She felt like she had a small makeshift family. In other words for the first time in a longtime she had something to lose which might have made her far more susceptible to the family friend Bobby soon introduced her to Charlie was the most charming person Catherine had ever met has shaggy brown hair and wide smile were captivating. She fell for him in an instant Catherine new little about Charlie other than the fact that he rented a huge ranch twenty five miles north of Los Angeles as as the two grew closer Catherine also learned that Charlie lived with a group of free love hippies all around her age they call themselves. The Manson family and Charlie was their leader. The word family grabbed her her. She knew she wanted to be a part of it. Eight months after moving in with bobby and gail all three of the move to spawn ranch and began living in the commune with Manson by the time they moved onto the ranch catherine had fallen in love with Charlie who seemingly reciprocated her feelings not that he was interested in monogamy of course when it came to sex Charlie Manson lived by a strict the more the Mayor Philosophy Charlie soon gave Catherine the nickname Gypsy moniker that would follow her the rest of her life. Gypsy was twenty six the oldest woman living on the ranch and quickly became the families mother she also became Manson's recruiter in chief seeking out vulnerable listless women who might like to help expand the family two of these women Leslie Van Houten and Linda Kosabe Ian would live on the ranch for less than a year before participating in one of the most infamous Venus murders in American history in a moment the Manson family gets its first taste of blood now back to the story Leslie Van Houten was born on August twenty third nineteen forty nine in Altadena California. She was born into an upper middle class family and given every advantage in the world she was enrolled in sports as a kid and even elected elected homecoming queen in high school but despite her well to do upbringing Leslie never felt emotionally supported by her parents she felt trapped by their expectations of marrying an equally well brought up man and becoming a housewife life as a teenager leslie experimented with drugs like l._S._d.. Hashish and marijuana but shortly after dabbling in drugs she began abusing them by the summer of nineteen sixty eight nineteen year ruled leslie was a full-blown drug addict and social rebel who had fallen out of her parents graces that Summer Leslie met Gypsy who told her about a man named Charles Manson and the family they were building at spawn ranch much like Gypsy Leslie was attracted to the notion of family and decided to stay on the ranch with her new friends quickly becoming one of Charles Manson's favorite girls Leslie has since described her experience on the ranch inch as surreal the group would have orgies and take l._S._d.. Together and it was during these trips that Charles Manson sermonizing about being the son of God he drew parallels between his last name Manson and being the son of man he would also make his followers help him recreate the crucifixion of Jesus with himself in the starring role while his group was under the influence of drugs he would explain to them somehow he the son of man had already died for them and asked if they would be willing to die for him in exchange for followers like squeaky. This was no problem in fact there was seemingly nothing squeaky wouldn't do for Manson because the family didn't have money for food the girls would drive down into Los Angeles and dumpster dive behind grocery stores for thrown out produce squeaky maintains that the food she ate out out of those dumpsters was among the freshest cheese hat in her life. It's been rumored that she along with a few other girls were also pressured into sleeping with managers of at least one grocery store in exchange for being allowed to wade through the. Garbage for food women outnumbered men on the ranch five to one ratio that Manson rather liked he would occasionally recruit men to the ranch by offering them one of his front girls the nickname he gave to his most attractive attractive set of followers. It was pimping belbow Charlie would paint it as family teamwork. They slept with men in exchange for drugs food or anything else. Charlie had his heart set on Manson also started forcing his followers to participate in Weird Trust exercises on one occasion he made followers stand in front of a tree while he threw hatchets just above their heads. If they flinched it meant they didn't trust him. Leslie recalled how Charles used to walk around the ranch and stop people at random to participate in weird exercises like mirroring his movements exactly so they were moving their hands and bodies in unison in hindsight she realized realized it was all part of brainwashing process to train his budding Colt to follow him in all things they were only allowed to listen to Charles Music on the ranch or the Beatles since he was particularly obsessed with the white album them nineteen sixty nine continued on like this with nightly parties and daily sermons all stranger-than-fiction by the time Gypsy brought Linda Kosabe into the ranch. The Manson cult was fully formed formed in July nineteen sixty nine twenty year old. Linda was living into Panga California with her husband an infant daughter at that point her marriage had fallen apart completely and Linda was looking for a way out she found one through Gypsy who invited Linda to come live on spawn ranch with a group of people who would love and take care of each other. Linda didn't need much coaxing when she arrived at the ranch she was surprised at how welcoming the other women were. She was glad to find that there were other children on the ranch for her daughter to play with. Everyone greeted her with hugs like she was one of them already in hindsight they were all completely drugged out but at the time it felt so warm that she didn't notice considering the loveless marriage she was leaving. It felt like a breath of fresh air. She didn't meet Charles Manson at first but the more she heard about him. The more the anticipation Asian built the first night on the ranch she met Tex Watson. One of Manson's few male followers the to hit it off right away. Linda was attracted to him and in later interview said he made me feel like I had never felt before within the first few days of meeting. Linda confided in texts that her husband and his friend kept little stores of money in their trailer totalling about five thousand dollars the money was meant for Linda the and her husband to start a new life together. Maybe taken exotic trip but no plan she made with her husband ever seemed to materialize. That's when tax gave her a proposition. She should steal the money he reasoned. It didn't belong to her husband anymore than belonged to her. Even at the time Linden knew that was untrue but she wanted acceptance into the family and felt that stealing the money might be the best way to get it. She was right after after raiding her old trailer for the cash. She was finally taken to meet Charlie. Linda remembered feeling a magnetic pull from the moment she met him. It was utterly thrilling not long after Linda's husband and his friend it came to the ranch to demand their money back Charlie stuck up for Linda immediately. It's unclear what exactly happened but a few moments in private with the two men sent them packing never to bother Linda again she had never felt so cared for from that moment onwards she became one of the thirty two adults in Manson's cult of course this isn't surprising whether Linda recognized it or not she had just undergone an initiation ceremony so mony a nineteen sixty five study conducted at Stanford University showed that high risk or unpleasant initiations make the group more attractive to the new member initiations are almost required for cults so that new members. I won't leave once the going gets rough and Linda's enthusiasm shows after all she had been willing to steal for this man before ever meeting him now. She do just about anything to see Charlie smile. Linda started participating in the colts now famous L._S._D.. Parties that would turn into orgies Manson would stay fairly sober during these two better control his followers he would tell them who to sleep with and control there every move and around this time his rhetoric grew noticeably darker leaving the realm of free love he began to convince his followers that he was the second coming of Christ and the devil all in the same person he began pushing his followers to commit strange petty crimes for him he called these missions creepy crawlies they would drive into Los Angeles and sneak into people's homes homes then rearrange all the furniture in the house while the homeowners were sleeping it was unnerving people would wake up to find all the furniture in their home rearranged with almost nothing stolen during that time men's and convinced Leslie Van Houten to Rob Her father's house she did so without a second thought Charles had always had irresistible charisma but now his followers were beginning to see him as something more he he was god-like to them. He began giving sermons to his followers wherein he would talk about the looming apocalypse that would destroy all but the chosen few he became obsessed with the Beatles Song Helter her skelter which he believed was written as a direct message to him he said the song was heralding the end times. When a great race war would lay society to ruin in his estimation the race war would lead to the toppling wing of white supremacy and the black community would rise to power as the new world leaders Manson and his friends would stay out of the war completely they would hide out in the desert which would become a land of milk and honey as described in the book look of revelation in the Bible he explained Black Americans deserve the right to rise to power they had been trampled on for centuries so it was only good Karma that they get their chance to rule but Manson was racist he also believed that the black community was unequipped to rule and would eventually need white men to show them how to lead with no other white men left Manson and his family would come back from the desert to take the reins of power from the overwhelmed black leaders? It was ridiculous racist Hogwash but his L._S._D.. Adult followers believed it wholeheartedly after all the nineteen sixties were a time of extreme racial tension in the United States hates. The rise of the Black Panthers caused over inflated panic among many white communities too many a race war wasn't a far leap from the race riots. They were seeing around the country Manson began speaking of helter skelter on daily basis. Linda Kosabe even recalled an excitement building around it then in late July nineteen sixty nine something happened that would put helter skelter on the fast track Manson family family member Bobbie Beausoleil went up to a friend's house accompanied by twenty six year old Mary Brunner and twenty one year old Susan Atkins the home was rented by a friend named Gary Henman a brilliant musician who had once played Carnegie Megi Hall he also supplied Bobby with drugs from time to time which bobby would then sell but the most recent batch of masculine Gary sold bobby was bad and his buyers wanted their money back which meant that bobby intern learn wanted a refund bobby. Susan and Mary overpowered Gary and tied him to a chair. They demanded their money back but gary told them he didn't have the cash eventually Manson showed up at the cabin with a Samurai Sword and tried to intimidate Gary but Gary wasn't scared of Manson and refused to pay by this point Charles Manson had been living as a deified cult leader for nearly two years he he didn't take kindly to being rebuked. He used the sword to slice part of Gary's ear off sending Gary Reeling and pain Bobby tried to patch Gary's ear up but gary insisted on seeking medical attention. Gary didn't know it but he had just signed his own death warrant Bobby would later say that Gary didn't deserve one bit of what happened next but he felt like he had no choice. He knew that the second they brought him to the hospital. SPITAL GARY WOULD NARC Bobby Killed Gary Henman. He tortured his friend for three days before finally stabbing him twice in the chest. Charles Manson knew exactly how to get away with the murder to using Gary's blood they made a pop print on the wall of Henman's cabin and wrote political piggies in Blood Charles hoped that by using these symbols of the Black Panthers he could pin the murder on them A._M.. And incite a race riot but he had learned something else to that if he wanted he could push his followers to murder. It was a skill he knew would be mighty useful in the impending war he returned to spawn on ranch and told his followers to get ready. A war was coming Hellfire would be on their doorstep and when it arrived all of Los Angeles would burn to the ground thanks again for tuning into our female criminals summer of sixty nine special next week we finish our deep dive into the Manson family murders a spree of slayings so horrific.

I know that there's very few rare people that are like, being although I have to say, I actually didn't hate being pregnant, okay? Although maybe it's revisionist his. Drugs. I think they like you know in men in black. They have that little little silver thing, where they go click, click don't remember anything that could have been that I think it has to be because how is it that so many women complain about? It's the most excruciating pain. And yet, you would think it's like dramatic traumatic, and there would never do it again. And then having multiple kids. So it's really not that bad. I the love of the child is so great great. You almost feel like okay final do it again. I mean, I can't imagine having that hyper Nedal. Oh, whatever. It's called that like where you throw me, Schumer, HUD, and like Princess Kate on so many so many Kate had it too. Yeah. Yes. She was hospitalized. I don't know what this pregnancy, but I know what the first two she's really, really sick. I can't imagine going through that. And wanting to willingly do it again. I know that I don't know. But maybe when you know you're in. I don't know. But I didn't have that identity complications with each of the pregnancies. Right. Didn't. Nothing. So terrible wasn't willing to do it again. Yeah. What's going on with you? Well, I was just at Terry's office, and he was burning things off my face. I mean you can't see like burn marks. No, they take this little hyper cater thing. And it's like this little wand. But, you know, I don't let Terry do anything for me now. He doesn't do Votaw anymore operates. But I'm just saying, like even if he did I wouldn't do it with him. Why? Because he's mean to me what you mean back like gems in back in the day, like I don't know, ten years ago when our fifteen years ago when he actually used to give injections he would give people a high Mike Ness, Odin is whatever, and I would come in, you'll be like, Jan van jam kind words just nothing bring it home. And then I'm like this is terrible. And then I would go into the office thinking he's like, Dr MO, yeah. It'd be better. JJ doesn't care. So forget it so anyway. So I had this thing above, my like I had a few little things like a skin on my eyelid and his thing of, of eyebrows. That looks like a Zet and it's not so annoying. And then just a couple of things. And so I needed him to buzz them off. And I was supposed to go like one thirty today and his assistant called means like, you know this whatever scheduled messed up, can you come now show? So I was walking out the door. And Nikki was walking in from his tennis lesson. Like, hey, I gotta go to dad office, you drive me. Like sure it's the greatest way to spend time with him. Oh, I can imagine. I love to work. Dead are great talk. I could organize my purse he's driving. It's so fantastic aweso. And it's just the beginning. I and you have two of them. Invest over ever. He's a little slow but it's. And it was so cute because we were driving, corona del. Mar Corno Mars, one of these towns that there's a lot of traffic and there's parked cars, and there's bicycles pedestrians. It's like, yeah, a lot going on that you really have to attention, and we got through the town and he was like. That's like the scary zone. So cute report cards back, and they both did great so happy for them. So anyway. So I went into Terry's office and he was buzzing these things up. And it I don't know if they usually people up before they, but it was like this light out. I'm like, don't you want to join the light on? That's fine. Rain here. Good glasses. And he's just going. I've got this thing on my stomach. And then he was like, wait, wait, what's going? No, honestly, I think if I had been naked, he would all. So bad. That's so great though. Gosh, I know pop in there. Good. But, like I wish I had more time would have liked him to, like, honestly, really? Go over my body. Yeah, that's it. And what you need take stuff off and do that thing. But that that just didn't happen. But I wanna tell you about my day with CoCo yesterday. Yes, please so much fun. I have to say the trend with her is so so good. And she is so much happier. Yeah. And she's being so good. With Terry really had. She just I don't know. We've had a quantum shift. I'm not saying perfect every day. But like, really good. Yeah. So she drove up with Mita LA yesterday. And she was there when we were doing the podcast and she was just cool. You know, I was tamra on there. And, and she was brought her lunch and snack at up to do in her ipad and her air pods, you can tell just getting older, though. I think before she'd been, like, mommy mommy, mommy. And now she's just like chill chill independent, just she's good. Yes. Yeah. Hung out. She was great. And then when we left there, and that was so great, by the way Bryce, and everyone entertainment tonight, candle earn and doing such great interviews and covering cameras Vena wellness which I think killing it. Yeah. Riley used it last night to love on his back like the cream the cream and the drops o- good. He's at almost like in like twenty minutes. He was like feeling so much better. Really? Yeah. Give it to Nikki for his shoulder Kasese playing so much tennis right now that he was sore. Good. Yes. Anyway. So we left there. We went over to Duff's cake mix. All right. So I've been the Duff's cake mix many time. No Duff was on what he'll seize like cake or something. Yeah. So they have these stores called Duff's cake mix. And if you don't have one near you, you go in and you can get a cake or six cupcakes. And then you pick out a few things and you can pay for extra stuff at get great the case. So I've been there a few times at the girls and what I had that show for eve celebrate. We went and film at them. They've always been so lovely, and I've always loved this place. And I have to say, like quota had a fantastic time and we were there for almost two hours, which was interesting because that's the longest I've ever spent there. And she was completely engaged in having a great time. Also showing like how much older she's. Yeah. But no one helped us was a packed. I will tell you that the ratio of people that were working there to the clientele was almost even that's interesting. And I was not impressed by the level of help, because every other time I've been there. They'll come over and be like, oh, what are you trying to make? Okay. You know what's really cool? You take this tool, and you do this. This almost felt like you know what color me mine you go there and they just give you the zone. Yes painted. Although, even colori mind they'll help you like oh you wanna make around ask them, though. They won't come to you. But every time I've been there when you ask for help, go do you wanna do whiskers for you or like things? That would be a little difficult for them. I think for you because he will recognize you. You're used to be coming catering to you versus I think, for me, no relief pays attention to those excuse me. 'cause you get some help getting so for you, I think this was like, unless it was just not normal. Maybe so. But I will tell you that back in the day, you know, before, you know, social media, and even though it was an actress, there wasn't people weren't famously that unless you like famous. You know, people would help you not we're talking cake and other remind. So maybe. Used to it. So anyways. So what happened was, I was like excuse knowing who care, but we're sitting there and we got our cake, and we sat down, and we decide cocoa decides who should we make a cake for? Oh. Because after we left the podcast we went over to Terry's office and not Terry's, office, the office where they shoot botched get. Which is like office, I suppose, but anyway, they on lunch break, we went, and we said, hi -tarian, Paul. And they took a little video and okay. So cute and, and cocoa got to see where they do the interviews on the green screen. And, and you've got to say hi to everyone because a lot of the crew that's on. But you used to be on housewives, right? So they know cocoa since she was nine months old and Jenny Beth who are married and have kids and, you know, had their kids while we were together, and how they were there when CoCo took her first steps. Yeah. So being her it was, it was really cool and cocoa's a little spoiler alert. Coco is going to be a botched really doing what why can't tell you yet. But in actually almost all the kids are going to be on botched was they film her yesterday. No. Oh, we're going to be filming late. Oh summer. I think everyone, but Nikki actually read on the show, ju- care. Do you want to? That is so cute. And it's gonna be really great. Everyone's gonna love it. So we went over and said, hi and we left there. We went over to kick him like who do you wanna make kick for? I wanna make a cake for dad, but we're going to Jesus night. We're gonna have dessert, like it didn't make sense. And like, well we could make a cake for Paul because, you know, they just got engaged whoever that's a great idea. Let's big from Paul, and let's make it like a track with the Ferrari. Oh my, that's so cute. You know, he has Florida's obsessed with sports cars. Okay. Great. So we get the cake, and we get all the fun Dan and get the things we need. And, and we're doing pretty well, right. Until it comes to the car. Yeah. Because we've got the road we've got the yellow lines. We she wanted to make a design around the bottom Houston butter cream to stick it on. And then it came down to the car, and I don't hard. We're like googling photos, and I was as being Kosonen health, and basically this girl comes over because. Well, we can't do things for you. This is self serve. Oh, wow. Oh, Q. Very well, then I'm like. Are we do a bike? Unicycle. I was like are there tricks to doing? I mean we've just really surprising how they had working there and how not helpful. Yeah. Like, no one was rude or anything. Yeah. Just one person that, oh, here used as Boba Strada mic wheels. And like, yeah, but, but you're right before they would actually, like come and show, you like at least one, and then you just mimic it, and you don't expect them to make it for you. But it's like this, if you were doing a cake with all pedals on it. Let's say what I would expect I my, my experience in the past is they would make one pedal and show you the technique. Right. It's just like when we go gingerbread decorated. Yeah. I remember like the, the pastry chef taught us how to make icicles hanging down from the house, right? Which was so cool to learn honestly, I could buy a cake at home. Yeah. And by my own funding into and by all this stuff at the grocery civil point. Is to get those sort of little tips and went on. Yeah. I walked out, feeling like I wouldn't go back interesting. But having said that cocoa, and I had such a fantastic time the other they really play nice music in there. And they have like, you know, cookie cutters and, you know, they've all Whitman there, but honestly, it was lacking, go to target in the dollar bin and get a lot, you know, pizza cutter at a ruler all the stuff that you need. Yeah. In do for half the price and do it for a third of the price. Maybe a quarter of the price and vacate yourself and whatever, so I just kind of felt like what was the point of going in? So how did the Carter now, so I have pictures? Yes. I think it ended up pretty good. Here's one of the things that I really loved about. It was that sometimes she gets frustrated in the past like, oh, it's not good. And no wants to like throw it away. Right. Totally on board with all of it, it is the cake. That's really good. That is hope. And they should get initials, a heart and bees of Paul loves Britney, that is or on the cake, but it was all self directed. I mean, this is a we spent more time than I thought it was going to be like a forty minute situation out. Yeah, we were there for almost two hours to the point. Oh my gosh. We have to go. Yeah. So we left there and we went over to Paul's office because they were doing. Seen over there, so -tario operated on this police officer and a really cool story. And wait to see the result. He had someone had operate on him botched it. This huge thing on his side. He couldn't even get as bulletproof vest, clone. Huge thing and his result is amazing. I mean it's just it's such a great story. He's such a lovely guy camembert where he's from from, like Kentucky or somewhere, south and Qatar. Okay. Not magellan. No many. We're in Europe. I don't know. By doing so funny. Whenever the kids are grade do jogger fy essay, United States, and they do all the states and every fifth grade of fifth grader mind. I totally remember where everything is yet. And I forget over so funny, have one last chance. Gosh, why being done it? Oh, go go through fifth grade. If I don't learn. I mean some day. No, I'm just saying in third grade. I know little like God. She's like growing up. So we get over there and there's cop cars everywhere. Why are there police ever because that's their shooting with them? So they have this cop car there and Paul's they're in tears. They're and they're shooting. And so we sit in the car and they caught. And so we walk out, and we give Paul the cake, and he was so Tut. She was eight invited Paul Britney and pulse sons to come with us to Gs but Britney just had Lazic done, and she can't where makeup it. So dark cares, just come, but I get it. So anyway, so it was better for us to be alone with CoCo anyway. But he was really touched by the gate. And goes Terry isn't that nice you so happy with the cake? Jerry goes, Honey. Oh cake with friends irt free dessert for his kids. And so that were really. Well, no. I'm sure that he was touched by it anyway. So we sat there while they were filming and we did filters the filters that cocoa, let me do with her. It was so funny because I just let her pick. Yeah. And whatever it. So I love how cheese a you know, just a little more outgoing with that kind of thing. Barest about everything. And she was like you can post that, that's fine. She change screensaver to a picture of her. It was so funny. So great really, really good. And then it was funny because afterwards Terry's like did you like the scene? We shot because they were on the Bullhorn going Paul, no. You know, just jokes. Yeah. Yeah. Pretending like he's patting him down saying he's not packing anything. Nothing's. Did you like it? And I go, Honey. Ilijo. Larry. You're so funny. It's so funny, and I go, let's be honest, I go, the reason why botched works is because it's rinse repeat same show every week and everyone loves it, right? You tell the jokes with each other in the same way. And that's what people. But. I don't know what you want to say. Do you think I'm wrong? I mean after sixties ins I get it like you're not wrong. It's okay, right people want. Yeah. They love it. And I think I always say to my dick, that's why budge by nature and work because it was different. You can't like mess up the no. If you got a secret sauce going on, but I do think what caused this season that they're shooting right now is a little bit more personal like the kids are on it. And I'm on it a little bit and a lot bid and just a little more like that. I think I think that'll be good. I think it'd be so we watched them film. And then we went back to the podcast and we had Dr John deal on who's a neuroscientist and in neurosurgeon unbelievable. But Cogan had to sift through that. But we had Ryan the show really did like the first half with cocoa and then the second half of Dr John deal. So and then we took her to Barton jeez, and they gave us our regular table. And they. Completely change the menu really not completely, but a lot of new things and a lot of new plops about Barton. Jesus everything is very theme. So when you order a steak there's enormous forecast it. And if you were sort fishers, huge sword, and get popcorn shrimp comes in an actual popcorn machine that they bring to the table. So the kids love it. Yeah, but it's not really a kid restaurant. Right. And if you go there often, you're no sort of the same show. It's like going to Benny hana's right here comes. Yeah. But they changed everything up and have to say the food was really good. Good. Because when you go to a place like that, sometimes a food is like a long or lack last Vickers, the performance. Yes. They're like, yeah. Bells and whistles, a food was really good. That's areas like he's really stepped it up, and it's on and now they're working in having drones deliver things. He said, it's been a it's been a rough road because of the liability and never have to wear helmets. But isn't that that is very that was pretty fun? So, yes, it was just like a really cool fun grape debt so great and cat didn't end up going because you're supposed to go right? She was supposed to come with us shooting and dip coming because she wanted to do it was her left day of classes at our theater company. Got it interesting. Yeah. I love that. I think that every parent, especially of multiple kids, it's good to have a day that dedicated to one child. I don't think I had that we were four and it was just, you sort of just feel like lost in the shuffle. A little bit. And so I think it's good dick. You it just makes you feel so special, like I have a day with my parents, you know, so hard. And I know so many parents out there, even if you have to. Yeah. Sometimes it's just hard, even if it's like going to get donuts in the morning going in and running an air, and with them, it's just like that alone time is, is really important. I agree. Yeah. And that's a really good point. It doesn't have. To be a whole day. Right. It doesn't have to be a whole trip just like those little moments. We get to have them one on one. That's why like driving with Nikki and the car. Yeah. He's so cool and down to earth such person we were talking on the way home right now because my mom called me hand. Oh, did he fixed the Terry fix anything? No. This is my when I had the EPA gurus hurt. It did you know, I had an EPA Dural and rose usually they put it in your like in the of your elbow. We have inside in your arm. And she didn't do that. Usually, they only go into the hand when they can't vein, but she went through my hand and sort of pop the bane, yet, it's really hideous swollen Burs sorry. It just look at her head. Yeah. Was hurting the yesterday. I was like, what is that? I looked at it was swollen and bad solitary wept night. Now. It's fun. But it's just hideous. Anyway, people. Keep asking me because I forgot to say what Terry coming for the pursuit. We'll get back to that put my mom had called Terry anniversary necklace what I said he said it did. He said, Finally, I mean, you just sort of skimmed over it because it was because he really necklace that I picked out for mother's right, there you go. But I will take a picture, but eventually. So pretty your mother had called me, and I talked to her for a second. I'm like Nikki's in the car. Let me just a call you in a little while as she goes. Okay. Tell him I said, hi. I'm like, okay, we'll do unto. I hung up the phone and I was like, gosh what? Nikki goes was that. Your mom and I go. Yeah. I said, you know, in you would I've talked about this so much. But I was explaining to him how it took me a while to get over the fact that my parents weren't going to be the kind of grandparents that thought they were going to be and they love you. They level four of you. It's just them like my mom's just not warm and fuzzy like that. Yeah. We were talking about relationships between. Parents and kids, and what ours is like, and he was like, well, our relationship is not like that. I'm like, I know thank goodness. I'm so grateful. I'll have a different relationship with your kids, too. But it was nice. We have a very nice mother son, real adult sort of conversation about it. Yeah, that's awesome. It was nice. That is nice. Great. But what I am trying to do this summer is having experience with each of that, so maximum doing shopping slash spa. Couple of days in LA, Jim really excited about and Katharina, and I are going to New York. I love so exciting. Remember, I did that with max? Yeah. Few years, which thirteen or twelve and cats twelve so we're gonna go to New York for couple of days and shows, and, and she wants to have a vocal coaching with Rideout you get in touch with that. I messaged Herpin change the date. Thank you for minding me. Yeah. Okay. Great. And then I have to figure out what to do with Nikki and cocoa. And by the way, any suggestions, I would love to hear them because for Nikki. So I was thinking, oh, he loves to drive at I called the Porsche driving experience because you have to be twenty one the way they described as teach you how to. Dr thought this would be like a good defensive driving thing, but not so much, not a portion of twenty one someone had told me, I hope this strikes a rings a bell with you. Someone told me about a driving school in Arizona. Okay. That you go to and, but it's for teenagers, and they teach you how to drive defensively like on our track and the whole thing. And I cannot for the life of me. Remember, who told me or what the story was? But if anyone's Arizona or you know what I'm talking about. Would you. Please message me because I would love to take him like flying. Zona take him to go. Do that have dinner spend the Night Live. That is so cool. I've I haven't heard of it. Oh, someone must know tried. I'm sure you could find anything. Okay. Maybe we'll do a little definitely Zona though. And it was for his age group. Yeah, it was like when your kids someone told me when your kids are learning how to drive there's this really cool driving. Thing in Arizona square Zona. Okay. We'll look into it. Yeah. But if it's anywhere. Yeah. Yeah. That would be very cool. He would love that. So if I could find something like that to get saying reminds me of the Brady bunch, you know where they were member in the Brady bunch where Marcia and Greg were twins right now. But when Martian, Greg were learning how to drive they did, like a contest, who was the better drivers really set up an obstacle course there was an egg Conan. Oh, God couldn't knock it off and have over that. Anyway. That just reminds yet. But I would like to with cocoa. I don't know because I was telling her about that hotel. That's like a tree house. Where's that Santa Barbara? Okay. That's fudgy. But what do we do there? That's a good point. Do you wanna go hiking? She's like no. And you're willing to fly somewhere and spend a few days or day or two only thing I was thinking about with CoCo is going to call Lindsay and see if they have a lot of times, she'll plan, you don't like an August getaway birth few days somewhere, that the purpose and she's just going to be with. Necessarily because that way like obviously, she and I would stay in a room together, and she would have friends, but if she and I wanted to do our own little adventure, right? It could go off on our own and join up with them. We wanted to Catalina island has she been there. No, that's interesting. That is so fun. You guys there's like. On perform there with my band years ago. But I'm not sure I mean you can literally like you went to golf carts can just cruise it around the whole island. Yeah. And then you can get on the water activities in the water. There's a bunch of little places like in town that you can walk around. I mean you can definitely spend a good day and a half there. Really? Yeah. Zip lining. Their she's over zip-lining at this point. Right. So many times, but I mean it could be cool can even drive the call golf cart around good idea to you over or we helicopter. I mean, you could definitely helicopter and do it that way. Just I wonder which ran Buffy experience a little bit review, Trumper one way and very one. Yeah. So we can look into that. That's a great idea. Yeah. Let's that for. So I need ideas for Nikki of anyone knows if any of those driving things, let me know. And then, oh, I forgot to tell you tyranny said last night out of nowhere fifteen thousand. You said Ted. Nope. It's up to fifteen. My gosh. Did not go to Aspen and you're you are go, go. And they leave tomorrow morning. And he's like. I just I just, you know, it's to show chal wanna go, and I just, you know sounded good. I'm like, I go whatever you get there, you're having dinner spend the day on Saturday Sunday trying to sound. I don't really like I dunno. Terry may bail and he goes it so funny. He keeps taxi Bob, I'm still in like he's always convincing himself. Like I still going Goodling. If teen to tonight it's going to be twenty totally. So, so out, buddy, they'll have a good time, though. And then you'll have a little alone time. Yeah. You know what I just desperately need it? I really really do you to not have boozy dinners this weekend. Let so funny, how you went from, like one extreme to the other. Because the thing that I was really worried about. I know him ruining ballooning our trip and, and you, you and Lindsey term. And you know what else I've been like, honestly, I didn't like that. He wasn't taking into account anything. I was saying. Right. If you just been like I hear you. Yeah. Thomas, this won't happen. I don't you know and talk to me about it. Instead of blowing me off. Maybe I wouldn't have been so crazed. Yeah. It was more the emotional part versus him. The physical part of him leaving. Yeah. I get that. Yeah. But, but now, you're like. I want to work on my clothes tomorrow. And then Saturday. The gym, and then I'm seeing MRs Lee. Oh, Saturday tomorrow, which is good. So I need to go. See miss Lee. And because I was having a bad moment this morning. I woke up, I was trying to sleep in, you know, you just not good at that. I slept in more than I do. And I stayed in bed, but it wasn't like delicious or anything. It was like anxious was a little bit anxious. And I got up and I was having this moment of. Where's my career? Add in what am I doing with this? And then I picked up one of the crystals like the strong one and I, I was holding, wait a minute. You're doing this doing this doing this, the opportunity to do this in this in this, you're working on that. And that, and that, and these are all really positive good things could see sort of talk yourself. Yeah. By the way you guys, I'm working on a really cool fashioned thing, and I started working on it, I don't know, three years ago that would that be right to, to have, and Natalie has been helping me. And we worked on it for a year with a specific group, and it fell apart, because of a series of circumstances that aren't really important, but shouldn't have fallen apart. And so it's sort of it on the back burner. And it's kind of deliciously been brought back in a way. I completely. Did didn't expect are you guys are excited about the notion of that? I know what I'm doing with it, but I'm sort of curious what you guys want. So have them, right. You because I've been over the years. Of course, I've been offered to do a lot of different things like home goods furniture ITO that kind of thing, and then maybe that will come down the line. But we're starting in fashion. So right in. I'm just curious. Yeah. To see what people want. Yeah. I love that. I know. I hope I know let's hope stuff. Yeah. Why did I bring up the fashion thing because we're oh because I was holding my Christmas. And I was like, yeah. All these things and work is about to come out and, and we're going to have some interesting ideas for that. And some cool guests that are coming on the show. Anyway. I walked away, feeling stronger and better good. And I think I just needed to get out of bed definitely need to get back in the gym endings of energy, seeing this lead tomorrow. Saturday. I'll go to the gym. And then I need to go a little bathing suit shopping. I always like to get like one new suit just that I feel like is working right now. Yeah. And then I'm going to bring my sparkly suits that I have so exciting. Yeah. I'm excited all that. And I need some new sunglasses. But then I thought I might take the kids to south coast. Is going to take them to OJ night, Martin that you said. Yeah, I was but Mexico don't wanna go. And Kevin CoCo Verdy been. So you're like, why are we doing this again? I don't think it's necessary. And I thought maybe I'll take them to south coast, and we could walk around doodle shopping and have dinner on key. That's fine. Just me and the kids love that. And then Terry's coming home Sunday at some point. Right. We're having good. What legit chance I bought them all these random things? So nobody tell him because this will come out another zephyr, Vollers. Okay. So bottom of these random things bought him. Remember Lindsey told us about that pillow that she got. Oh yeah about that, while you guys were talking about that. I bought a hit bought that speaker with the case a little larger, but I bought that a smaller speaker k Eddie might like and then you're gonna give them the big one, I if he doesn't like. And then I randomly got some Email from some company, whatever. And I looked at it, and they had these almost like an idea bracelet and it says, I had it in grave with dad because remember he was wearing that leather that white leather, bracelet white leather. Well, he wears the black leather double wrap every day. But he was wearing white leather brace that cat had made for him. Wolf law that said, daddy on it, and then he lost it, it got stopped word and she was like I don't care if you were at an. Yeah. So it got him this medal one I dunno. It's kind of like gun metal grey. Maybe hold my stack it. He might it thought he could stack it with his leather. The kids are going to give him though. He will show. It was cheap, but I'm going to show it to the kids. I do wanna give as if they don't I may just right. Let it go. So I got him all that stuff. And did you tell me what you're gonna do for Riley for his pre Father's Day? I didn't I don't have. Anything? I'm really a bad. Say baby mama. You don't have to do these Jag yet, carrying the child, which is why pre mother's day makes sense because you already living it right now. But I feel like I need to do something I'm getting the house completely done. So I feel like that's his gift. Is that what you're doing while he's gone? Yes, they're starting tomorrow through the weekend to who's they, Amanda organiser. And then she recommended me with designer said it. So it's organized by Amanda. Yes. And what's the designers day you'll you'll tell us? Okay. So what are they actually doing this? So they are going to my house as you saw in complete. Gosh, shambles and every room is like that, like every room every closet. Everything pretty much had to purge everything. So from my closet from the linen closets from I mean, everything because we don't have enough room for literally anything in our furniture was all over sized. And so she literally couldn't achieve the pike couldn't crawl anywhere. Because there's just no room anywhere. So I filled my dining table while back. I like all the MIR stuff in the side tables, and we're just going to give her some floorspace, so I'm sort of turning the dining room area in to sort of like a accepted move all his books out of the room, and he has probably over one hundred and fifty bucks. So I'm gonna make it sort of like a lounge e den type of vibe and that she can crawl around. And if we wanna just he wants to sit there and read and have a Cup of coffee. He can do that. And not feel like he's sitting in the living room on the couch yet about that because we had that in belbow islet was, we were living when we sold our house in Bel Air. We have the twins. And we moved into our house in belbow island, which was supposed to be a extra house. So, but it was small and so are downstairs spes small, and I did the same thing and what I did was you've carpeting there. No have wood floors. Okay. So we had wood floors. So what? I did was when she's really little won't matter so you don't need to do right now. But you grow with the stages. And so when they started actually calling. You can get these vet. You make a fence around the whole place. And then they have these rubber squares in all different colors, actually. Nice. Like you can make it look like your floor. And they connect together. Yes, you can make it any size you want and put a pretty border on it, and it becomes your floor, but she can crawl on it. So I have rugs everywhere yet. But rugs are still hard on hardwood floors, but they make the little kneepads. They do some of them like the kneepads on his I don't have room for the rubber things. No, it's where the road goes on top of the rug news flat. Or you put it in. Is it like those the kid the kid ones that you connections instead of your what you do is you take the rug up and you make what you had at what's it called and your last house? Where do we have it, it was in the yet, but that was the cheaper one, the one that we had in bubble island was the name of the company for her? But they were really, really nice and they came in. If you wanted navy or you wanted to burgundy like the color of your rug, you'd put it you make it just like an area rug and Italy nice for them to, like, crawl, and that we, if they like when they start trying to stand up and they fall about this is nothing if to do this, one of those things where you'll see because for the first six months, they're mostly star crawling before them. So they're just laying there. So you got your fine. I think if we're here for another year, then I'm not going to touch anything. I'm just going to wait for the next house, and you'll save it out. It just figured out as you go. You don't have to plan it. But, like I'm like, I'm just remembering. Yeah. As the twins were growing go okay, networking anymore, and I need to fence them in so I can make dinner, right? Or else? You know, they're like danger secrecy, so, yeah, get into those stages as you go. Don't get over well with it, because what happens is, as it hap-. You overwhelmed of what I'm doing now to go back Joe. Right. So everything is pretty much out. I sold pretty much all the furniture except for my coffee table. My bed in my couch. Everything else is pretty in my stools everything they pretty much his man cave had to sell his couch, the new all the bookshelves, everything, did you get money for it barely. I mean the resell is, is. So I'm pretty much giving it away for free 'cause I mean it's crazy. So when I want to talk about this for one hundred street about furniture. When we left our house, in pelican, the one that everyone with the double staircase on housewives we live at house. I had this beautiful living room set the most gorgeous carpet, and so and it was so expensive. Miz Weiss word never do another. It wasn't supposed to be a former live right turned into one. So never doing this game. Because no one sat in there, knowing used it, and it was a fortune, and I remember at the time done. Yeah. I'm Danica was redecorating, or I can't remember what happened. But I said, tape mine, just take this whole room. So she put it in your living room and just use it. Whatever. Yeah. And then when they moved out, and it looks so pretty her. And then when they moved out she was like, what do you want me to do yet? They were moving to a really modern didn't fit. Whatever what do you want me to do it? And I tried to sell the stuff and you get pennies on the dollar, basically almost gave away half of it. It's so depressing. The only things that. Actually do well, like restoration hardware type items brand names. Yes. Other than that, put a price tag on. Yep. Other than that, I think offensively it's just more popular people like that. But everything else. No, I'm keeping the coffee table that you gave me the one from pelican that was downstairs in the game room. And then you took it to emerald bay. That was living room gay gli? Yeah. It was like a custom would the one that you hated it had a glass top, because it was get dirty because. The glass and the would it would wear the glass late into the wind up. It would get crunch rights. There's done grow. And it's so big. But honestly, I just like it's it works. So I'm just going to keep it to the banging thing or the Horner glide. It's really great. So pretty much got rid of everything. Everything's on the floor, and I don't know how to purge my closet because I'm huge right now. So I'm like trying to figure out what to do, but I need to bring over a lot of his close to minds that we have room in that closet. But I don't know how to purge one pregnant hard to Jane's. Oh to finish. The furniture thing for second. Yes. My point was, don't spend a ton of money on furniture. It's like getting dressed like always say, you know it's good to be collected. So, like I will wear a ajar addressed and throw like Chanel belt on it. You know, you got to choose where you're going to spend your money wisely. Don't spend a fortune on a sofa. You can get a sofa anywhere. Yeah. And even then I think just like working off one piece of think if you fall in love with one thing, whether it's the credential, we're one chair. Whatever it is. Then you work around that you can find pieces that are either less expensive or mix and match and whatnot, which is sort of what I'm having to do right now, but it's just been crazy in our kitchen. We have no cabinet space, and obviously, he has a little gadgets galore. We, let's go back to your closet. This what think you to do? I think Juve space under the bed left or no, there's just no, there's no bed thing above. The rack in your closet. No, my closets like four by but it's a walk in, but it's like three feet of walking. Right. But what's the height of the of my point? I mean, a standard could you put a shelf on top of? Like on the opposite side of the hangings rack is or from the all the hideous, what would be great, if you could if you could even take a corner, if you could take all of your genes, like put everything into stackable boxes away label them put a photograph on the front of them descriptions, of what's in there, and what size they are, and don't worry about it, because you're what five and a half months pregnant six six. All right. So you have four more months left, then you have to then your weight's going to come down your body's gonna shift you're going to be an intermediate, June of saying, you've got a longtime before where those genes, which, so just put it away and rediscover them later and why look at them just put everything on much of that close. Well, you're stretchy stuff. You don't need to put away, I would just put away things that are not in the imminent future. That means slacks winter coats, like all kinds of. Stuff like that. It's just I don't know where I'm going to put them and I guess it can put them in bins underneath. That's why I was asking. That's my oh. Oh, I don't have reminder Nathan. Because it's like the wood panels, go all the way down. We need a new bed. There's how would help. That's nets happen. So that's sort of what I'm but hopefully MandA can come in and just you have drunk at the end of your bed. No nothing room for it. I'm just places like you would get claustrophobic in my place that tiny have not been invited over a really. Things in there. Well, you will because I think we're gonna record from there when the baby not gonna be able to come here. Up to save me, although eventually you're going to need to get out of the house. Of course. I just mean like writing. Yeah. But yes, it'd be interesting. It'd be very, very interesting. What happens with this place, but I long as the nurseries in, I just don't want to be eight months, nine months pregnant where I'm just like huffing and puffing and miserable and putting things away. Just want it to be done. You know, it's so funny, though, I feel like we all say that, and it just you're still eight nine months pregnant huffing and puffing, no matter how good I just, I don't wanna be sitting on the floor building furniture. Right. You know what I mean? Whereas like women are doing all the time they're lying about to come. I have to put the nursery together. I just wanna walk by. Okay. He doesn't. I wanna buy a little alpha just hang it or I just put it away. I just don't wanna have to be like frazzled at the who have to take pictures of the shoes. I got her. I will. I will. I will. Messaging. Yes. What else besides play I will. I thought we were just waiting on the video. Oh, I wasn't sure is he doing a little video I thought he was. No, I thought we talked the one that we did for closet. Yeah. Yeah. But we could show a picture to shoot. Okay. They are so cute. They will. I know so much so much. I was thinking that, you know, it's weird too. I didn't get one pamper or one wipe one time, one wipe whatever. It's so boring. I'm just saying isn't it was so funny. Nothing cuter than size one diapers. Oh, then they're not cute anymore. But what she doesn't fit into everyone. They do newborn size one diaper. Yeah. Even the what if she's hefty to she's not size? Diapers and they're so cute. They're so cute that you have to save one. Is it like a certain brand everyone uses. That's like just. I think people have the one that they use that they loved just their thing. I don't know. I think I was raised with pampers. So I bought pampers but my sister was by this will not surprise you. Sister was completely against the characters. Oh, she didn't want any recognizable characters on there things. And she wanted natural organic the reusable really gross. I mean I all I'm happy that she's into sustainable and putting down the you know. You know, biodegradable but they were so ugly. Meaning they were like they look like diarrhea color. They were like ugly. Tail vomit colored diapers, just always looked. I don't know there's something really refreshing and crisp about once you clean the baby. And you put on a fresh crisp little diaper. It's night yet. Good and clean and. Hers just always felt like they were deal dirty. I know rally was like, so they have hyper genyk, one have this type of, like, I don't know. You're stressing me out. What if the kid comes out and like is logic to everything, who knows? We just gotta like you have to do the religion, nothing. It'll be fine, allergic to things we're not. That's why our luck. No, it's fine. What did the hospitals use? I don't know now thinking about it feel like they use papers xfinity give you a bunch, too. I don't remember. I feel like I used pampers until they got bigger. And then at one point, we switched a wanna say the Huggies because we're Jeter crawling 'cause they have like the last. Yeah. And then and then they go into pull ups, right? Honestly, by the time they get into a pull up. It's whatever. Character. They like right, right. Whatever they're willing to wear. Yeah. God so much. I think so funny. I'm just ready for her to be here though, much. Don't I know? But I, I am. I really am. I'm just like, okay, let's do this really. Yeah. I'm I'm good. I I'm one of the anymore that and I think he's so excited. And he just like can't wait that it's making me excited. Some just like I'm ready for her to be here. Oh, yeah. I know I'm so glad yes, if you've been listening for the past couple of weeks, you've probably heard me talk about Dole's, smoothie blend. But guess what? They also have something amazing. They have frozen dole Asya bows, to, and look the weather starting to warm up. There's nothing that cools you down quite like a delicious assignable. It's light and it's refreshing. And if you ever had one then you know exactly what I'm talking about. These smoothie bowls are great for delicious breakfast or anytime as a snack. And they're so convenient with dose eyeballs. There's no washing. There's no prep-work love that. No, blender love that. No blunder clean love that more. All you have to do is let it thaw or put it in the microwave for thirty seconds. Grab spoon and enjoy instead of going to a smoothie bowl shop every morning, by the way, which is not convenient and very expensive much easier to just pull one out of the freezer rather to go out and wait in line and pay for it because dose eyeballs are a fraction of the. Price and just as delicious, they come in three great flavors original protein, and tropical, and the best part is each. One is two hundred thirty calories or fewer. So if you're looking for something tasty first thing in the morning or to sneak in a quick snack break. Try dole Sables find them in your frozen. I'll. All right. So we have the medical medium on the show today, anyone has heard sellers. You got me into celery obsessed with it yet, and you should see the front page of his book.

You're listening to Heather do broS world, Anthony, William. Hey nice to be here. It's an honor. I am so excited to have zillion. I'm Sast with celery Jews. Wow. Like can't even Natalie got me into it. And so I have a gazillion questions, but I want to start with this. So, you know, you've, you've written a million bucks. This one that I have in front of me, celery juice. The most powerful medicine of our time. Healing millions worldwide. This is a very, very big statement, especially being married to it is a double board certified surgeon who believes in. Well, nothing. This is a big deal. I'm a huge believer, but I want start with this. Why do you call yourself the medical medium? He started at each four voice perfectly clear telling me about my grandmother, having lung cancer, but nobody knew that. So, and she did in so the information came through before anybody knew, but it's always been like that. So dedicated my entire life doing this offering information, but information that's advanced medical information, head of signs of research, so the books that you're talking about all these books that have written our spirits books spirit wrote them, and I just took the information, this one word at a time wrote it down, so that it could be there and it's advance information. In these this isn't just like the same old health books out there with the same old stuff, reconstituted information passed around incited passed around and everybody puts it in books. This isn't that a ritual information is information, it's advanced medical information and doctors across country alone are using these books in their practice every day right now as reference guides because they know when they read it and they actually invest a little time to thing, no with the reading, and they're like, oh my God. This guy knows more about viruses than anybody else does right now. This guy knows more about what's happening in the body, then so many other people right now. So that's the medical medium information dedicated my life, bringing people out of the depths of darkness with their chronic illness, because Krahn the chronically ill been swept under the carpet, mostly women swept under the carpet disempowered because the system has set up a way to keep women down in back this empowered with chronic illness, right now. And that's really the truth. Why? He this with a lot of my friends, and they all get lumped into this garbage bag of auto immune. Diagnose -able ailments, that are never actually handled even at mayo. Yeah. And check this out auto immune that's in nineteen fifties feary, a theory that the bodies attacking it self, the check this out. Okay. Nineteen fifty what was technology in nineteen fifty? Where was her medical Rotarian, mice, my, though, to a movie watching old movie? Okay. From nine hundred forty eight nine hundred forty nine nineteen fifty and tell me where we're at okay. And they came up with the thought the theory that the reason why everybody's suffering with all these different aches and pains, fatigue, and tickles, numbness, and everything else that women are suffering with every single day. Vertigo all of it is because the body's attacking tacking itself auto immune. This is a theory remember from the nineteen fifties. It became law. It's grandfathered his law firm. No apparent reason would no proof. No scientific true. Study to say otherwise women are all basically cattle and corralled into this belief that their bodies destroying itself in attacking itself. Okay. And no one's talking about this. And when women come home from a diagnosis they go to the doctor, you got hush motorcyle renite is your body's destroying itself, basically. Or what about girls that are sixteen seventeen that get that diagnosis? And they hop on the internet. And they're like, wait a minute. My body's destroying itself, my daughter's. She motives, exactly. This is set up in a way that's not being fixed. And no one's talking about. I'm the only one yet that's brought it to everybody's attention. The only one. And that's how how how crazy the whole thing is unbelievable. Okay. So let me ask you this. So you're, you feel you are a conduit from the spirits, putting out this information. You know what it's better than that this voice it's been? It's been speaking to me telling me, it's the spirit of compassion is what it is. It's one. Voice, one spirit was never human being was not an angel is not anything, but the spirit of compassionate all, I know. And that's what the voices to give me medical knowledge. That give me information. That's avanced information whether anybody likes it or not, it's already healed so many people look celery juice, which came from this voice has healed millions in this world. And it's going to be hundreds of billions, and billion pretty sue. The most powerful trend of our time. Healing people, this is this is the information, but just so everyone understands and I'm a big believer in, but you don't you're not a doctor. No, I never said, I was no. And don't have medical training. Yeah. They don't of course, things I find very interesting about hateful, and intuitively together, actually drew Pinski was here recently, Dr J was a good friend of ours with me, and Terry, who has Dr we're talking about how people and energy our bodies talk to. Each other. And so I was just curious when you get the, the next of the voice that comes back to for the next idea, do you feel it's just from that voice, or is it because you like you were talking about your grandmother. Is it because there's someone in your life that, that your energy is feeding off that you're getting that information from two legions, the next one, you know, that's true that happens. And that's exactly what you're saying. This is still different this voice just separate from all of that, from the outside of me, not from the inside. I don't hear it from the inside. It's always from the outside of here at perfectly clear. Wave my hand by wallets going through, and here it as if someone's talking to you at your best friend is talking to you or anything. It's that powerful of had to live with it my whole life. And it's giving me information about its going when I was a stock boy in a grocery store at each twelve thirteen and fourteen it would give me information about what's wrong with all the people pushing their carriages around I started. I got my first clientele at each twelve thirteen fourteen hundreds of clients we. Because of that very thing voices telling me exactly what was going on in their and their bodies. What was happening within needed, and I would be in the back juicing celery for them. Juicing celery is one of the one of the tools such as one of many, but that's what I would be doing. So this isn't I didn't just wake up yesterday with this, or this is five years ago, I had a spiritual calling I talked to some really amazing people and their powerful intuitive spiritual calling they channel things they all of that. And you know, and it hits him at a certain time of your life. You know, you just wake out of something and you all of a sudden become your true. Soul. You're chew suffering. That's not what this is those people that I'm talking about. They're actually they work harder than me in the sense of getting their gifts together like they're intuitive gifts and they're channeling gifts and everything well on they work hard. I never had to do that. I have more respect for those people in the spiritual movement that I have even for myself. Yes, this not a genius. But this has been information, easy access for me because I hear it directly at all times just twenty four seven it comes through. I write the books pilot paper handwritten like this, and that, and then it's typed up in that's the book in the books of the information. And yet, the information moves people forget moves the needle, and it's four everyone who's either plant based vegan are paleo or Kita, the food war of the vegans against the people. I'm not in the food war. I'm giving both of them information. You know, why both of them are sick all everybody on Alder diets. I don't care if they're flip-flopping going back and forth, they're all getting sick. Okay. I want to dive into the salary juice. I love all this. And I just think you're amazing. I think it's super cool, but I want to just dive into the salaries because I think that people need to understand first of all, who's it for? What's it for when are we supposed to drink because some people say, I in the morning, some people say it doesn't matter people at Lemmon some. People think lemon destroys everything to. Let's start with this. Those are people coming up with their own ideas. What they think they should do with something that I already know how you have to do. Work still going to buy the book minimum sixteen ounces on an empty stomach as what you have to do every single morning if you can't empty stomach in the morning. Sixteen ounce why empty stomach because it's herbal medicine and it's, it's an extraction, and you need to have it go through the entire body flushing as much of it as you can not get looted by food, some, dietitian nutritionist, and I love dietitians nutritionists. I love all kinds of professionals all in health, but sometimes you'll get naysayer like dietitian. That will come out and say, in an article or something, where's the fiber? You're ruining the whole thing. The fibers were the nutrition is at no it's not not with celery juice. The nutrition is extracting the medicine because it's an herb, it's not a vegetable really. Yes. Think about it over and over again. People will say, hey, you don't know what you're doing with it. You gotta make sure you, you have it with this, or mixed this, in it, or keep the fiber, in it makes you blend the fiber or anything like that. And it's usually somebody that thinks a lot about health. Meanwhile they call it. A vegetable at the same time, it's not a vegetable juice. It citizen. Herbal extraction? That's why it's turning lives around. It happens to be a powerful one with things in it that are undiscovered by researching science. Look, I'm passionate about it. That's what you're hearing. Stocks of celery equals sixteen ounces about well, you know, every head of every every head of bunch of celery. Okay is could lead to anywhere from sixteen to twenty ounces. Twenty four hours about a bunch of about a bunch of, we're not adding anything to it. We're not at this. You'll dilute it. You'll destroy it you'll hinder it, you'll weaken the benefits, it's got things in their one one which the voice tells me is sodium cluster salts. This is different than just salt. It's basically it's a subgroup of sodium undiscovered by research and science. They'll discover I'm the guy that found out hush motives is caused by steam bar. That's my information Ridgely no signs of putting paper saying they found a connection. I brought information and still have in these books that are just being discovered and going to be discovered in the future. This is how it's always been and sodium cluster salts are in celery. That's a subgroup of sodium, that destroys viruses, the very thing, that's behind all these illnesses is all. All the viruses, the upstream bar, the cytomegalovirus, HP six when you get told your body's destroying itself, and nobody knows and women. Don't know what's wrong with them. What's happening? They have pathogens viruses and doctors don't know. It's not the doctor's fault. So let's let's talk about like a healthy person. Meaning someone who doesn't have these list of complaints, and they're going to start drinking the salary Juno. They're going to do it. I mean on a practical level bullet points. What, what benefits are they gonna get from from drinking this, or we always worried about preventative? Yes will right there. You're already doing a preventative, you're preventing your liver from getting stagnant sluggish and sick, so you don't so you don't start gaining weight or getting Harpo petitions are getting hot flashes, which is all a sick limited. Stop from gaining weight because it's cleaning the liver, every day you're doing something the flush and clean the liver every single day. You're preventing the future of gaining weight if you're twenty years old, and you're working out every day and you feel pretty good. You don't have anything wrong nothing's ever happened, but a cold once in a while, and you're one of those lucky people because there's not a lot of twenty at our lucky anymore like that. And that's how you're living your life in all good. And you don't have a weight problem and you're drinking, celery juice. And you can't quite tell what it's doing. For you or not. If you do it long enough, and you, stop, you realize it was giving you more endurance more energy more extra more exercise endurance. All of that. You'll notice all of that. But if you don't have a condition that you're battling, or you haven't been to ten twenty thirty doctors in battling all these different conditions, and you tried everything, and then you bring into Ciller juice into your jeans, and it moves the needle forward. That's where it counts. About this for me, personally, is that I've Sadah, but also since I've been twenty one. I've had this very strange. Call left side issues. And you said something recently about tailing. Okay. It's my whole arm have right now, down to my fingers whole left side of my body down to foot, like kind of like a numb warm tingling thing that comes and goes. So I've been drinking, the celery juice, for I don't know six months now. And my chef went out of town, and I haven't been drinking it for, and I got out of, and we were traveling whatever, so I had two weeks off and it's so bad right now. So I notice the difference when I see the tingling neuro toxin that's a neuro toxin creed by viral issue. Do you have any water? Talking since six o'clock this morning. So what's happening is. That's a neuro toxin based symptom. So guess what causes Attica besides slip disk a disk slipping, what causes, it is the shingles virus? Everybody has it in them. And they're gonna get a one time. They're going to have that pain, one time in their Lyles politics, same virus, same virus, because I get that same virus. So, so what you're feeling what the numbness and all that. And the Tinley stuff. And that's what people get that's the neuro toxin produced by the virus. So we're talking about younger people drinking, preventatively prophylactically, and then is there a time where it's too late and someone sitting out there and saying, well, gosh, you're can't have it now because I'm way beyond all this is still helpful at any age come. I god. It's incredible. It's incredible for Alzheimer's dementia, memory problems. But not just that if you've been diagnosed with auto, immune, you have a pathogen based issue. It could be anything like, like fiber. Mile Epstein Barr caused Hasha tyrod Itis, multiple sclerosis rheumatoid arthritis. Those are when you. A us this. That's just some of the very things AMI CFS lupus lime disease. It's incredible. When you bring the sin, it's changing people's lives around you go to my, my Instagram page. You look at some of the information or the thousands of people's testimonials that actually have recovered their health with Lyme disease and everything else using medical medium information, celery juice, being a part of it. It's a big deal. It makes this is changing everything and well, let me and anybody who doesn't believe it is gonna be on the fringe because people are doing it and they in. It's not just because I got this going to years ago. I've already have thousands of people drinking this before five years ago, thousands, and they've never stopped, and now it's like a tidal wave. It finally burp that self. This like. Right on. People that catch up. No, one of the biggest things for me and not to be. But I just am not someone that goes to the bathroom very easily. And especially when I travel, I'm just clogged if I went away for a month, I would probably explode I don't know what would have to my poor little system, but ever since I started drinking sellers in the morning on an empty stomach. I'll tell you why. Because it raises your HCL restores your stomach lands would happens. Is that, that hydrochloric acid gets rebuilt, a by the celery juice? Okay. And it, it would it does is it makes you break down your proteins better. You digest proteins. Everybody has these proteins in them, that are rotting. So advice out, there's more and more protein keep onto the protein. But everybody has we hydrochloric acid. We livers their stagnating sluggish. They can't go to bathroom. They don't go to bathroom the way they need to you. Start drinking the celery. She not only cleaning and flushing the liver building up your biopsy can breakdown fat, but you're restoring your HCL and you restoring your stomach lands, especially for sedentary people. I would think. Even more. That's just one part of people with acid reflux just the problems, gastritis streptococcus in e-coli that nobody talks about in the gut CBO, Detroit causa CBO streptococcus. That's the whole point. And what is this? Yeah, this is what does what do you think about this versus like you're talking about gut health and people always about probiotics, we'll being married to a doctor? Sometimes, you know, they don't believe in a lot, unless it's scientifically proven and was has believed that kind of a self cleaning oven, the body as it, incredible Oregon, and lots of credible organs and functions. So well that he doesn't like moving out bad. Some 'Bacterial takes out some bacteria that you actually need to what do you think about probiotics versus celery, will the thing is the it's two different things, you know, the celery juice kills off bad bacteria. So the doing, of course, the good and actually feeds the bad bacteria to the good bacteria, and that will be discovered down the road. That's information that came from voice. I hear all my whole life would it is, is celery juice destroys bad bacteria, and cleans the poison out of it. Then feeds basically the bacterial carcasses to the good bacteria nothing else can do that. That will be discovered down the road, people need to know the power of herbs. I mean, aren't they all freaking out about CBD? Aren't they all freaking out about every other herb herbs more like exalting herbs to literally as if they're God will, then what about why can't celery juice literally be doing what it already is doing to millions of people healing them because it's that power. What about hydration? About how important hydration is hydration is an amazing thing. It's really important, but celery juice is in saving people just because they're getting a little bit more water based liquid inside of them. They're not. They're not being saved for that alone because think about it. What's the first thing, your husband advises anybody with any kind of health issue, drink, more water, right? He must have said that in his whole in his whole career. I mean, he must have asked him has he ever told anybody to drink more water with a health problem, all doctors do all health professionals do and it doesn't mean it gets rid of your Hashi, motives, Thyroiditis. It doesn't get rid of your multiple sclerosis. You're, you're lupus, your CFS your aches and pains, your tangles numbness, dizziness, your vertigo, your migraines. All of it. You're excited depression, water doesn't fix the problem with people drinking celery Drake, you better than water. Well, here's the deal. It hydrates the body just like water with lemon. Would you squeeze lemon water? Hydrates. The body just as good celery juice would. But that's not why people are getting better, because celery has other things in it other things talk about celery juice book, and that's where the Magic's at. That's where it is. Let's talk about this. Let's about where we're getting our salary from because you don't wanna what I think about celery, I understand about celery, so it grows the ground. Right. And it's like a straw and it sucks up whatever's in the earth. So isn't it important where we're getting our celery from because what if there's like pesticides in that soil or something bad? So how important is, you know where we're getting ourselves from. Is it organic? That kind of thing. Everybody's eating whatever they're going to eat. Okay, they're eating that if there is everybody on just organic. Some people have the ability the resources to be only organic literally every single food is organic, but sometimes not everybody can do that. So they're going to be eating conventional things n. Anyway, get the celery conventional. That's the only access you have or the only opportunity you have the resources you have because it's still going to help you because chances are, you're still eating pesticides and other foods too. If that's the case. Don't tell me that everything's were Ganic, except your salary in your whole life organic, except the salary. You're gonna drink means you're all of a sudden getting pesticides, herbicides. Insecticides from other avenues, including the ones that are already in your liver for thirty years now from other other places, and the celery will still be bringing those pesticides out of your body, that's in your liver, plus the one than new ones that could be on the seller you wash it really good. It does help us to some degree even could be still systemically in there. But I always say, we're Ganic absolutely like there's a pyramid. They say like these are the most important foods, eight that are gannet because you, right. I mean unless you're gonna go live off the grad grow your own food. All of that you're going to get some pesticides. Some hormones things that maybe you don't want, but for me when I look at the information your book, and I hear you talk the most important thing to me is that. That celery is sucking up something good from that soil. So that the first thing I'm putting like I wanna flush out my body. Absolutely. So wouldn't you say like being organic with the, the most important thing? Think it's great. It has to be organic in many ways. Sure. But if you can't get organic, don't panic, you're still going to get so many benefits that are going to outweigh whatever residue that you're dealing with, because that residue like I said, that's a person if they can't get it organic. I mean, if there's people out there that don't have money they don't have resources. They can't get Ganic food. They just got to go to whatever it is. You know, whatever place down the road and get whatever their, their food is all they have. And if the conventional celery sitting there, you're going to do your body good, one hundred percents, you are have you have an opportunity the organic celery is, you know, it's everything's better organic. We know that. But you're still going to get benefits from, from the non Ganic. Okay. What it can you drink too much. And what if you wanted to drink it more than? Today. Like you gotta remember the conventional celery juice is going to have a complete electrolyte just like the organic one in no other. Food has complete electrolyte even tell you that. And that's why people get better with their brain, their brain fog, there memory, all of it, the focus because there's a complete electrolyte you see this water. You gave me there's a little bit of electrolytes naturally occurring in here. Okay. But that's just not that's not a complete I have to gather electrolytes all day long. Like you guys have to do what are you having for lunch? Would you guys having for dinner by the end of the day, you gathered, a whole bunch of different pieces of Letcher lights to try to sustain your life? Celery juice has a complete electrolyte goes directly to the brain. Nothing else will have that, that will be discovered down the road is why people actually are healing, and you're still going to have that benefit in conventional seller. You're still going to have the vitamin C that doesn't have to be converted by your liver in the conventional celery, because no other all the vitamin C you take vitamin c supplements, your husband does. Or if you have vitamin seen in orange, or if you get vitamin c in food, it has to be converted by your liver. It just doesn't go in your. Body. And then it becomes vitamin CS. If you take vitamin C, packet, or vitamin c supplement it has to be converted by liver in order to work. Okay. So is not functioning. Yup. But here's the thing celery. Jesus bringing the liver back, but not only that has a vitamin c that doesn't have to be converted. I got that information from spirit. That's the whole point. It's instant vitamin c for somebody battling Epstein Barr, giving them all the different conditions and symptoms. I just mentioned earlier in this podcast, and that's why people recovering from their auto immune, which is pathogen based because they're getting infusions of vitamin c they're getting a complete electrolyte to get to their brain. They're cleaning up their liver of neuro-toxins. Gave you your sciatic tingle numbness. Whatever all that. That's viral, that's the celery juice cleaning, all of this up. And this is advanced information actually spouting out at you guys right now. And everybody in the audience, take a part of this and work on healing. Because there are answers I- millions of people that have actually received my information around the globe. Are healing. And yeah, I'm not a medical doctor. I never said, I was on the medical medium, given the information since age four and I've helped doctors assisted them for decades. I've given doctors trouble-shooting information of worked with them for my whole life with my whole life. Doctors, respect me and not all are gonna your husband, not might not. He might say all the guy has no degree. But either way, I'm here for the people people know what people have fought me for years 'cause they're healing. And I'm here for people and this is part of it. I think it's amazing. And you know what at the end of the day, we, we could get our information wherever we get it from. But if it works it works. Well, okay, we'll science research. I didn't know science research fixed. Everybody by now. I didn't know they had everything you tell me. Two hundred fifty million Americans aren't dealing with symptoms. They can't get rid of chronic, sinusitis aches and pains chronic is problems every day. They're going to the doctors all day long with all kinds of symptoms. I didn't know science research had it all down. Whoa, ever. Everybody's been fixed. Everybody's. Box. Everybody's there aren't sixteen seventeen eighteen year old suffering in their bed. Dying of chronic fatigue, syndrome, and nobody knows why. No checks. It's especially these young kids. I have four kids ranging from age fifteen and I see all the friends and I, I mean, like we didn't have this growing. We didn't ever heard, and it's getting it was one that upstairs, right? One kid that had mono, but nothing nothing like we have exactly. And we're either over diagnosing over analyzing little aches and pains or were not doing science and research drop the ball with chronic illness. I'm telling you right now bottom line. And if you if you think different than you're walking around blind is bat because you're not seeing the amount of people in droves suffering with symptoms without any answers. Look, if you feel great, and you're lucky, and you're fortunate, and you're doing good. You can work out in the gym every day. You don't have any worries. Maybe a little anxiousness during Zaidi once in a blue moon. And you haven't had to go to tender, Allah, GIS tes. Okay. You're not going to respect you, understand that person who went to tender allergists. Who went traveled looking for all these answers, a woman that can't take care of her kids. She can't even get out of bed and can't function and she's losing her resources, and you don't have respect for those people. You know, have respect for the people at the chronically ill because you feel fine. And you think science research has it all cracked up to be you go to school? School teaches. You everything they know everything about medical, you go to medical school, but that's not reality. The reality is people are suffering with no answers. And everybody's going to have to wake up to it. I've been supporting and I've had the back of the chronically ill and women kind since I was a kid, and I'm still standing by that regardless at anybody says, well credit people believe I certainly believe you're number one New York Times bestselling author. This is the medical medium, Anthony William celery juice. The most powerful medicine of our time. Healing millions worldwide, I'm so blown away by what celery has done for me, and my life. But I didn't know about the hush motos thing and everything. I'm gonna start giving it to my daughter. To all my f- seen bars responsible for hush photos. It enters the thyroid at talk about it on my books. I talk about with the virus does creates Najah lls, it gets inflammation, started in the thyroid. And celery chiefs is a pathogen killer viral killer. It's why been able to reverse these things in people, and that's the key. You just you wanna be able to take control. You wanna be empowered with your health. Think about that. It's all about empowerment for women, but yet they don't get any answers with their chronic illnesses. In fact, they get disempowered. They're they're told it's their genes. Your bodies are faulty hormones the hormones genes, Bonnier fall. It reminds us where we stand. It reminds me of cardiac disease, because, you know, men when they are having a heart attack. It's very obvious sweat. They the armed to give an aspirin. It's very obvious women have a completely different set of they just don't feel that they have indigestion. It's always overlooked misdiagnosis, which is why women who have their first cardiac event, usually. Di same kind of thing, women are more achey painting, those kind of systems, rather than the big red flags which makes it so hard to diagnose, and also puts us in that, like we were talking about the beginning, this garbage bag of auto immune or that's life. That's growing old and it doesn't have to be. And I remember talking to a doctor back thirty years ago he was already in his nineties in this was thirty years ago had a practice in the nineteen thirties, still ninety dollars carry practice in the nineteen thirties. He had the practice nineteen forties, innocent by nineteen forty five women poured into the doctor's offices, and every all the doctors were just confused and baffled for the first time in history, women came in with symptoms, never before seen never before seen in history. The fatigue, never before seen in history. All of this for team the hot flashes, which was random, and rare back that day all of this, the tingles numbness, the aches and pains anxiety, depression, pour it in with this in the nineteen forties. Doctor told me it was like they were baffled by this baffled. So they came up with the hormone theory that's did because it blames the woman always blame the woman it's her fault. It's her jeans. It's hormones. It's your body attacking it self that with the industry's created a safe fault. So the industry's protected, and the women are the are the fall guys. That's what it is. Nobody likes me nobody likes talking like this. Controversial because I stand up for true empowerment about women's health, and it does get people razzed up because they're like, no science research has it also up, you're, you're not a doctor. Sure. Okay. Tell that to women who go to so many doctors can't get answers. And they're suffering. It's you know, when you get down to it to the nuts, and bolts of all. If you're women in your suffering, and you're not being heard, and getting the answers you need. You know, it's not the research and science, just let them down think it's amazing in this area in this area. Not in other areas, don't get me wrong. I think there's amazing. Well, you tell people how to find you on social media. Sure. Medical medium Instagram, my medical meeting page, and Instagram. That's it there. And Facebook to medical medium, medical medium dot com. Go to my website, you'll you'll see everything see see my books there and I love. And I think it's amazing. And I really I challenge everyone to go take the celery challenge, and see how good you feel. It's amazing. Thank you so much for being here and sharing all of your wisdom hundred be here, everybody. Take care and love you much incredible. That was interesting. So he's so passionate. What do you think about the voices, I believe in all of that stuff, and I just can't imagine the he is just making that up out of thin air. I mean, I think it's the whole thing is so fascinating.

It's our resprayed that it's so lovely to put my words into ear holes are Harare were back after a long long week. No Mossad nece now everything Dell with thank you for all your messages of sorts whereabout, you death, or and all that stuff. It was lovely. It was really warm the cockles of my heart by the people say cockles of the heart. I've no idea. I'm sure cockles like a sea, Geno. Something why do you have them around your heart? I don't think you live very long if that was the truth. So yeah, it's a new week array we're going to have more listeners stories it's going to be a bloody big episode. This you know, because of low the loads and loads and loads of stories come in and the role terrifying. Yes. This is Mike phone about loud. I think it's distorted about let me just lower the real time editing. That's what you're experiencing here. Now live from the flats. So have you been anyway, if you've been good let me tell you what I've been doing this morning. I've been thinking new words for the English language. Yes. So I think our word need to be invented. I'm gonna call this word right here. Now, a flab Tra a flab Tra and factory it needs a better word. So maybe we'll have that as a competition. Anyway, the word means we'll call it flab trough now. But, you know, this common thing the happens now where people don't finish sentences believe it, and they don't finish it, and your mentor know, what the end of it is. So for example. Do you want to stay in or and that means you mental issue? Would you like to go out or you're going have alcoholic drink tonight or? And then you might say or, you know, you're gonna be a wall enough, soft drinks like a ball, you know, and people do this all the time listening conversation. It will happen. Now. You've noticed it non telling her about bringing out into the ether. You'll notice it more and more. It's so annoying. It's like finish essentially busted. Would you want some some vinegar all effect? No that doesn't work because you could say that or could be mayonnaise tomorrow. Anyway, you can see how this morning's gone for me, quite a long one. So yeah, if you can think of a word that describes these people, then Email Lynn that said if you can Email in and brilliant all. There's no I don't know what you meant to shoot from that. God. That was dull wanna bloody also flab tra-. Yeah. Think of about two for that. Anyway, spooky stuff. Harangue? I need to start the show with an apology. Yes. A naughty podcast host a terrible podcast host rarely and the reason for that is last week. I it's a bloody crime. Early. The worst thing podcast can do. And I attribute it a story to somebody else. And I must apologize. So I'll try and explain it as best to unit the story that I then confused and said it was sent him by who told us about one corona one Gerona, please. It wasn't sent him by IV last week, the one about electrical things going off, and I talked about sliders and going into lamposts and all are. No, no, it was censored by ruby. Yeah. From New Zealand, the lady who sets gravestone, and it rumbled underneath says like headwind, I'm sure you didn't wind. But anyway, the reason for that is because I name it sounds like ruby, and I got a bit confused, although than historically I did get in touch and say actually my phone has been going to bit. We'd so you know, maybe I was just psychic. I wasn't psychic. I was awful. Speaking of awful. Let's get into the show with of course, the money was absent last week. Maybe explain is absence. Yes, sir. Paul McCartney land. Hey, everybody. It's me sip womb Courtney and sorry, I wasn't he'll us week. I forgot I s Ringo. Ron's only put a show flip the turned off. We forgot his helmet Oma. Gold was nightmare. Anyway, I'm back now. And we're going to look at the letter. Hey, ch- in my spooky alphabet and hey ch- stands for hard of the dribble. Yeah. Now known in Wales as the bear with me crack Gribben Trump trade saying now when you've had a few the ghost is notoriously ugly and appeared in his an old woman with long matter who knows piece is and a long arm long arms with clue like Huns sounds like my mobile. Can you say that anymore? That's sexist. Jeez. I don't know click on some reports of the phantom of stated that she looks. If she has scaly black wings, and all of them screeching voice that is claims to be an omen of death. Woes according to dishing, the original hag were Welsh goddesses an a mostly to be found in the vicinity of old castles, she's an ugly. She's ugliest though, Liban has been a form of abuse in Wales for many, many years Blinken. Heck she sounds like a right one would like to to cheapie anyway Joe for now. So Paul McCartney though, with his spooky off abet threw in a few mother-in-law jokes there, which pretty show you're not allowed to do in two thousand nineteen I tell you what Paul and it'd be speaking of Paul McCartney our first story incident on birth effing leave ably is for the attention of Paul McCartney. And I'm not even asking you ashes you don't want to shit. Oh swore nosy, and I am not in you about this so many cents ago story for the attention of Paul McCartney. Now, it's a very good ghost story. So already out. So this is coming from Sean Fleming says, hey, Kevin. That's me. This story is Memphis. Oh, Paul McCartney. But you can read it to why not you know, what I'm going to text, sir. Paul now. People are now sending you messages on the show. They says on real I may have to suspend you from the show on the Sean actually thinks your real in which case he probably needs to see a doctor. We got right back to the story. So for some background on this story. I had made this horribly haunted looking build a bear with some family friends as you don't. We got this idea from our friends crazy cousin that did it years ago as you can see in the attached video. I'm going to be putting this video up on the patron, and I will play the audio at the end. So you can get just as well as you can see video we chose the best slash worst possible sound when you squeeze it's hand. So I decided to bring this abomination good word to college. A few months later. It was all good fun. The roommates with hide and people's beds to scare them excetera after some phone. Excellent one handle that I didn't know though, the building was haunted. You can Google Bing Hampton, university hinman lemon haunting and we will. We'll all do that today. I think I'm going to do after the episode. Maybe we'll do episode special on it or something like that. And you'll find a few papers on the tales. So I'm sitting in bed one day with bubbles that its name. On my desk leaning against the corner of the wall, and it laughs it didn't fall. It didn't slip down just one laugh won't truck through and then nothing now, I'm home alone. So this is a bit creepy, but I don't think much of it next day a couple or couple later same situation. I'm on my bed. Bubble starts giggling except this time he didn't stop rights away. It probably play three or four rooms through while. I sat horrified and the loan in the suite again, I peek my head out into the common room, and nobody on the floor seems to be home. So while it was creepy. I couldn't do much about it and decided to stay my room play some guitar to ease my mind play you now next was the last straw. I put the Qatar back into the closet and immediately as I sit down laughing, laughing laughing. Okay. Sean little bit of advice for me. Ben the fucking, okay. I couldn't push that one off. I ran out into the hallway with it's still laughing and just sat at the bench for a little while until my roommate returned they asked why was in the hall. So I told them the story. One of my roommates walks in opens the door and laughs a him. I hit the thing away for the next few weeks until I had the opportunity to bring it back home leave it's out of sight in the dining room. But unfortunately, for me, that's not quite where the story ends doing some research on the haunting I found out that one my building was haunted and to the most haunted room was right. Above me. Now around the time of having this bear experience. I started getting some unexplained bruising when I woke up like massive, eight inch black and purple bruises on my legs and little ones all over. Ben the bear, Sean, if you have this do me, a favor, go out strap into the buck of a truck and just wave goodbye. Let's see where was we they would last for weeks and really look bad. So he went to the school health clinic who basically told me, I I don't know you've probably kicking the wall in your sleep. Here have a mint. Well, hey, they sound qualified Leo. And I went on with it. The thing was I had a lot of the worst on the inside of my legs where I couldn't have possibly kicked anything. I didn't realize the connection until much later, which is why I don't have pictures of those bruises. What a friend said remember those demon bruises you had him freshman year. I just and then there's an image with its head exploded. Hopefully, didn't really explode the bridges stopped around when I took it back home. So that's my best go story. It doesn't involve seeing goes Pez say, but his spooky spooky spooky spooky nontheless. Hope. You enjoyed Sean. Yes, Sean, I did enjoy. And I think I like everyone else. Listen to this. Now wants to go to build a bear with some holy water. Abell a book and a candle start exercising each. And every little fairy Fakher that there is because that's terrifying. Right. Then as I said at the start of this story, he also provided a video, and let me tell you when you see this video. Go to the patriot page, you'll see this video and imagine getting this sense here. You know, I don't know, Sean, I mean, yet to podcast I invite people to mail then bought I could just send this video to anyone. And if the with the Bill of the ring or Ringo, if you're an original person right now, I'm going to click it to play listen to this. So he sends me this pitch up just of an inside out Bill the birth. Right. Video even when he squeezes it. This is what you hear listen to this. Just getting out of the box. There we go. Picked up on the record listen back. But let me guarantee you. It's terrifying. So thanks, John. If anyone else has got a story, such as this that you want Paul McCartney's read is not going. Okay. He's not going to. But I will so Email is talk about goes at hotmail dot com. So that was haunted build up as their remember when fair B's Evelyn said that they were haunted because when the batteries go low they'd say things like y'all t ready never had freakout out might gold. It's the devil himself. Am I gonna Furby actually because it guarantees get more spooky stuff coming through that? Then you all through them bloody apps last week. Or stupid things said it's like, yes, you're clearly preprogramed and for the gullible of mind, I am neither preprogramed noble. Thank you. So let's get some more your stories this next one is as creepy little story, which is what you want to s- podcast. I guess so let's listen to this. So this story is being sent in by three stakes. Pam on Twitter. Great name us names. Actually at underscore potato underscore pie. Underscore KOMO underscores the my old English homework. But she's been a fan of the show for while now. And this is the first story she sent in. And it's great. So let's listen. Hi, cathy. Hope you well. I'm really I am. Thank you. Thank you Braskin. And hope you're well two three six pound. I'd say Donna mistakes because that'll kill you. I've a really good story that slipped my mind until I was reminded of it last night as I was in the house at the center of this story. One of my friends still lives in family home. I'm close with the family. So I stay overnight overnight overnight now, and then now the house is from Victorian times. And has loads of wind Easters and strain split levels. My friend's mom. That's mother in English. My mom, Bridget always says that she thinks they're a few goats and being climbed to believe it a few things have happened while I'm there things falling over those closing without a breeze that kind of thing Bridget always says that that's the Kach which is what you call to the ghost. There's nothing sinister. But I'm always slightly freaked out when I'm in the house, Bridget told me that when they moved in over thirty years ago, one of the bedrooms on the top floor and this five floors five floors. I love story in house. You know, it's like, I think we lead a bedroom above that will have a shea slash just a room for a shares launch above that. We'll have a billiard room and above that an attic no powder room on top of the attic. The attic attic. Yes. We'll have it like that. Or? And then you have to shoot what it is Victorian houses water thing. Anyway. Olivetti's ago when they moved in. One of the bedrooms on the top floor five floors. They had had had the doorway sealed up. Now, that's ominous. Isn't it apparently in Victorian times? They would do that. If an infants died in the room. What really I did not know the effing terrifying. Oh, that's like the lady in black. And if you've not read it spoiled. Anyway, the remove the seal a made a bedroom, but she said that she'd only ever slept in that room once and never after I wonder potato by that particular room has a mezzanine in it. The bet is up on the mezzanine and the steps leading down to the lower level. She said that there was a sense that there was something down on the lower level of the room. Just to kind of presence or something down there waiting for her waiting for her. The bedroom. I always sleep in is directly under that room. So I'm always a little freaked out in case I hear anything from upstairs, but I'm happy to say, I never have. Anyway, one night. I was laying in bed asleep odor. I couldn't sleep. I never do a bed. That's not my own. I agree with that. So I was watching something on my phone out of nowhere. I felt genuine force applied to my ankles. As if someone had lunged for my legs. What I was dead still for ages because I was absolute terrified eventually I got brave enough to jump out of the bed and turn the light on which are left on for the rest of the night. I'm not surprised the next morning. I mentioned it to Bridget and cool breeze. She said may used to do that to us when we couldn't we wouldn't get out of bed for school. May was her mother who had died a few months previously. I knew may well, and we also always got on. Well, and after I just kind of brushed it off as a playful reminder that you might still be around even. So it still gives me chills. When I think about it. It, and I always feel now that's something is lingering at the end of my bed. I've never turned off that lump in the bedroom ever since I know the story of the sealed approve upstairs, a my experience don't link up. But I thought you'd enjoy them both anyway. Yes, I did enjoy that very much. I did not know that that was the case. I honestly did not know that was the case that if an infant died in a room sealed ope. I pay you know, in England now probably in Liverpool's from they'll be Victorian houses where that's happened. And as these locked up rooms, God all mighty if anyone knows of any of these locations. In fact, this is a creepy and horrible things to say is as time passed, I don't know still dead shoulder. There's no decisions decisions is it. Okay. For me to turn up with a crappy in pretend app and walk into the locked room. And be like anyone here. Anyone who else spooky or is it bad taste? I don't know. But I'd still like to do it because I'm a group. But that is an amazing story. Also, what's over won't get out of bed. She'd pin all the bed. Yes. Yes. That's what we do in our house. Okay. Yes. So what story? Oh my God. That's fascinating. I like it. When you learn things through go stories, anyway, that's other midpoint. The midpoint put the cat lawn. Pull up a chair roll a cigarette. If you will for this eighteen sixty two and become to look out of the veranda enough of that nonsense. So how all your anyway, it's the midpoint. Yes. It is. We've reached here. Once again, we made it. It's better Latam point unusual because it's a big show walking tell you. So I've got this little bit of wire a touch phone to miracle Nick, which is meant that I'm going to be able to for next week's episode. Call people who I know of had stories that just copy type in them. So that's going to be interested in. As we want to say, thank you as well to Debbie Brown, who's one of our patriots. And she's sent me some really lovely messages of last week as a lot of you have to give a special mention to be because we've got a bit of a back-and-forth. So so thank you. Thank you backs. Who also got in touch and said, some kind words, and she also said that Jenny from last week story is new hero. So well done Jenny. You've got a hero out there. Jenny you are someone's hero out there. And that someone who's Beck's over. Yes. No. I yeah. Yeah. Also from news on patriots stuff. Obviously the video of the build a better thing is already going to compatriots that will be up there now for patrons. But this again, no one's in the house. There's a door closed behind me. Anyway. Can you? I'm going to pause this story. Okay. I'm back. So you won't believe this. But we gotta covered under the stairs in this apartment. Right. As many houses. Do local throw shoes knickknacks, whatever. That's why I don't. Now, if you make us left it open. But no, let me tell you something to get into this room that if that goes on can you can't get into this room, and I'm obviously in this room. So whenever opened the door the doors wide open to the under the stairs thing. And this isn't victory. I mean, yeah, it was built on a powerful lump factory for major to go. But anyway, yes. So now, I'm doing this with the studio open. So I can see it goes on and I'm facing a hallway. So that's fucking terrifying. Anyway. So yeah, I was thanking people so. Yeah. Thank you very much and patriots already the bear video is off on patriot. Which is good. And also new Optima for our patriots. As of next week. We're going to trial a link to the show the link or the actual file of the show twenty four hours before it goes out. So that's another little perk for the patriot people go to patriot dot com forward slash we need to talk about ghost. There are many levels over there. Golden sign up and donate what you can to show. It really is helping me to do this getting better equipment or ready settled another show, which is just a conspiracy theory, but you can go listen to now that's live and thanks to the donations from the show, so Israeli massively appreciated I generally couldn't do without. So thank you. Speaking of which let's say Hello to the patrons mood. So once it with the dole. Why don't because clearly got a one full ghost little tiny goes a little miniature goes to live under the stairs, lack a hobbit blue. Yes. Do you wanna taste my piece trees? Be making pastries. Anyway, let's say some patriots. You wonderful wonderful people who of course in our first category. The Poulter nice group, we have Amy Clark, Georgia Smithson. Grant, Hawkins Mercedes Chapman.

And they'll all pop up if you want to donate to the show go over the patriot dot com forward slash we need to talk about ghosts. Just a quick mention as well since the show's inception like a year ago, I've a few emails back and forth with people and a lot of questions about what to do the up. So in a nutshell in Chela tiny little nutshell. The will also be joining this episode a bonus episode where I'll be answering questions the bit of a Q and A with me with the host. So it might be a bit spooky. But you know, it's not necessarily going to be just about ghosts. So therefore, it's a bonus episode downloaded if you wish if you. Don't wanna know anymore about me. I don't blame you nothing exciting here. Then just skip it. Okay. Then let's get back to some spooky stories. And by spooky stories. I do mean spooky stories. Let's go. So this is came in from a new listener. Hello new listener, this is from Haley Malone. That's a nice name in everybody loves that girl. Hailey allow on that's a book Malone reference them anyway. And she sends in. Hi, kevin. Hi, I'm a recently. New listening to your podcast on I'm going through the past episodes. I love the show and the listeners stories I wanted to give you my go stories, and I will accept them with open arms Fatman at a restaurant. Here we go. I'm from small town in Louisiana USA, Louisiana is inundated with ghost stories, and they love going on tours and staying a haunted places, but I never really experienced anything until a few years ago when it had two things happen. Maybe kind along. So I apologize. Don't you worry Haley? I've got the bandwidth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Sure. Go patrons. Don't you know, they're paying for bandwidth? Anyway, the first is when I took a few college friends to New Orleans to experience, the culture and atmosphere. We chose an old hotel to stay because. Well, we were broke college kids that night we went on a haunted ghost tours and the Torah stop in front of our hotel interest sign the happened to me when we went to if you listen on one of the episodes. We went back took me to your to most haunted city in England allegedly we stayed in a pub called the golden fleece, and we stayed in the main bedroom, which is meant to be haunted, and then we're going to go and. Yeah. One of the guides go and that room up there is the most haunted room in England. And I was like well marvelous that's where I'm sleeping tonight. Thank you for that. Thank you. Nothing happened. Then get much leap not because of anything kinky. Just let us now. I was just drunk. Betsy much information. They're moving back onto the story because that's the point of the podcast. So we're gonna go store on the tour stopped in front of our hotel. Then the tour guide started talking about the ghost on the second floor room to await we were staying in room two six some of my friends were freaked out. But I didn't think really much of it as Louisiana is haunted. Check out mel's plantation in Saint Francis. Ville or just about any place on New Orleans and that night after get naked on the streets. We could use the word naked, by the way. You don't have Mary American seen naked. I don't think the fives went back to the hotel. We only have two beds. So one of my friends had to sleep on a pallet on the floor. The hotel have no windows. What you should this was a hotel. It sounds like you may just went into the cave. So when the lights went out it was pitch black the bathroom. Also are very weird bathroom door that was slatted. So you could see if someone was in it, and we left the light onto give Elliott light plan that night. I was woken by. Footsteps in the room Odia, not being able to see much. I assumed it was one of my friends. I decided since I was awake. I would use the rest true. When I got to the door. It was closed, but I could tell it was a large figure in the bathroom, my friend who was sleeping on the floor was allowed guy. So I assumed it was him. I waited a few seconds for him to finish. But he never came out. So I decided to go back to bed as I'm walking back to bed. I all I looked to the pallet on the floor and notice that he's asleep on the floor and not in the bathroom. I freeze where I'm too afraid to turn around. But notice that it's gotten cold. I decided it would I would just go back to bed and hide under the covers. I did not get much sleep at night. Obviously, the next morning another friend that was sleeping in the opposite bed mentioned, a he also go to the bathroom and not just a large figure in the bathroom to someone in your bathroom. You lunatics thinking it was our friend the friend on the floor said he never got up last night. And when I told my story, we'll just looked at each other in silence which out early that morning now that's the end of story on bought can. I just say like ghosts aside. I'm grateful that you're able to type this Email because that could have been anyone that is go side that could have been a bloody serial killer or something. In fact, why did it have to be scared? We'll kill us to be scary. You know, even if you're Uber is first and only victim, you're still fucking lucky on you. Oh my God. That's amazing. That's terrifying. It doesn't necessarily have to be a ghost that could have been a big fat fell of Pawan you toilets. I mean, are we got in another question? But if it doesn't have windows, I'm Jewish wasn't a hotel. You know, are you sure that you've just got into a bears cave? And the bear was like I'm going to hide toilets. What did you do? This isn't a hotel. I am not a Hilton, sir. I am a Burr anyway story to my other story happened about two years later, my bottom sister-in-law had recently moved into a new cave through that. It's not a cave into a new house and their two young children Jackson was three and willow. Who was one almost two? I was at their house all the time to play with the kids one evening, my sister-in-law, and I was sitting in the living room talking when the rocking chair started rocking on its own. Oh, nothing dramatic and fast. Just slow steady rocking. We both stead at eight in shock. I went over to see if there was maybe a draft or an air conditioning unit blowing on it as it was in the corner of the room. There was nothing as we are looking at it, the chair stops rocking. I'm completely freaked out. But I try to rationalize it. Pretty good, welcome. The next night was sat again in the living room and the chair start rocking. Again. Then we catch laughter on willows baby monitor there is nothing creepy than herring. Children's laughter over a baby monitor. I should've read this before. Because this is a serendipitous, isn't that? We've got scary laughter coming from a scary laughter. Proper thing. Children's laughter is areas near let's be honest. I don't know why people try to make kids laugh anyway, they should be miserable. Tila, ten because that way, we would never hear. Awesome. Terrifying. Like that that was my impression of child loving anyway. So we hear it over the monitor we go to check in and she's standing open a crib facing the back wall and laughing while you pick it up and you run to the nearest church. She's in laughing and reaching out to something that's in the back corner. What on she even notices that we have she never even notice as we walked into the room. All of a sudden, she stops laughing and quietly lays back down crib? This happens every night for a week. My sister-in-law decide she's going to reach out to the previous owners of the house who are friends they tell it about how the doors used to open the doors open on the road, and they would creeks all over the house. But did not not did not want to mention it as they were selling the house. Thanks friend. She's ambler capitals. And I quite agree with our losses over the next month. We notice that both kids talk laugh points play with something on the back wall of the nursery. My brother and sister in law decide they going to change rooms with a moving into the haunted Nasseri, but everything stops then have any issues in the kids. Stop talking to the ghost. They still live in the house. And sometimes I get the feeling of being watched and does open on their own, but think since nothing bad has ever happened.

Capping the Card with Ralph Michaels CFB Week 13 & College Basketball November 19, 2019

"What is your fund? Brian blessings working on twitter at Brian. Blessing and check him out over on our Bang Book Youtube page. We've got one more guest one more segment here for this November nineteenth edition of the book. Radio that is professional handicapper rough Michaels from wagertalk dot com cross going today man. Going great per she'd be an on and a gotTa Love mid-november with every sport every sport in full gear. Now it is a very very busy time of year to say the least so I know you're doing a lot with college football as well as college basketball. We'll tackle those two sports betting markets here on today's show we start on the college football side of things in you know this is a very interesting time of year because you've got a lot of differing motivations you've got college football playoff. You've got division conferences. You also have teams that are just is ready for the year to be over so lot of interesting things going on in college football here as we head into week thirteen there is Adam and there's a couple of things I wanted to bring up and for those that. Follow me on twitter. They know I don't give my opinion. I don't pay attention to stuff going on in twitter. There's no politics I I'd just put up information that I learned have kneecapping and I love sharing that information and this goes back to the north coast days and and situations that occur and with you know the killer sports database it allows me to actually backup things that we've talked about and you know when you're looking at those things we've talked about the numbers back it up so let's go through and and show some of those situations well. We know that every team goes in the season basically wanting need to get to a bowl. I don't care who you are when you're going through your schedule you think well there's potential to win this game in this game in this game and we could probably get the six six wins when when when you have your seventh loss in your awful loss your your bowl. Your bowl hopes dashed. Your postseason hopes are dashed so so when teams are awful loss in this their seventh loss of the season and now their home dog of eight or more. So they're a bad team anyway. Since two thousand fourteen those teams have gone eighteen and thirty three against the spread thirty five percent the fades this week. Our Bowling Green Against Ohio and South Carolina and Clemson. Now the South Carolina's situation you have to look at and and weigh in the factor of having your rivalry game on deck but just just something for our viewers to have moving going forward when you're off a loss and it's that seventh loss. It's normally a negative play on that team now on the flip side of that when teams are trying to get to a bowl. You're in November and you have five wins now. You're a home dog. UGH This Week. What happens you have pressure? We need one more win. You're probably looking at your schedule and say hey if we get this game we're going to a bowl. We get get to go and celebrate the postseason well since two thousand fourteen in November when a team has five wins and there are a home dog. They've Gone twenty-nine fifty-seven against the spread only thirty three percent off in public thinks. Oh they need need a win or their due to win or there or they need five wins the ball. Well that's just added pressure. That's more pressure on this team. That's more anxiety that's teams teams that are starting to play a little tighter and make mistakes those teams this week Arizona State and Charlotte and just one more that I've been talking about out on twitter for this entire season when teams are outgained by one hundred and twenty yards in one game and now they're in a way dog they've gone fourteen and thirty four since two thousand fourteen that Fayed is Illinois against Iowa but listen to this the last twenty nine nine plays if you're a dog of one to eighteen and a half so you're not in nineteen twenty or thirty point dog where a lot of times November. The favourite doesn't in care the teams that outrushed their foes by one hundred twenty yards and won the game and our dog. Four and twenty five against is the spread thirteen point eight percent so that's Illinois so again three things we talked about your awful loss in seven Kevin flaws of the season your home dog of eight or more. That's a fade November. You have five wins. Now you're a home dog. That's a fade teams out gain their opponents by one hundred and twenty yards in one game. Now they're away dog. That's a big fade. Well I think it's important to and and those are all very very good trends very good sample sizes with those as well. The thing about it is you know if you've got five wins and your this slate in November. You're not a very good team and I know everyone's kind of beating everybody this season but you get. That must win inflation that gets built into the market a little bit or as you mentioned if you're a home dog in that spot when everyone knows that you need to win that game or when you're next game yet you're probably not that good of a team so why why would you wanNA trust some of those teams unless all the sudden. They've flipped a switch and they're playing really well for one reason or another but they have five wins this time of the year. It's not the team I want to bet on with expectations agree. There are certainly different situations. And you know we've seen some teams you know Miami of Ohio. Hi Oh few years ago I believe it was the first to go six and win their last six. Obviously you're looking at a team that's red hot and and that's a different situation But you know too often at this time of the year teams are banged up. Teams are injured teams. Have you know expectations that are blown and we think just because they want a sixth win that it's that easy to get well you know. It's not your the inferior team and the other teams trying just as harder harder to get that. Yeah win of course too. I mean you know. It's very hard to quantify this. It's very very hard to get into the minds of these teams that of these players but some some of these teams. Don't WanNa go to a bowl game. They don't want those extra practices. They don't really care about playing another game especially if you're a team that usually you have greater expectations for a season. Now you're not going to get to a certain point. Maybe you don't WanNa go play that ballgame. Maybe you don't need that bag of swag or to get beaten up again especially actually for a younger team I think this could be factor because for older teams. We've got some senior players. They WanNa get another opportunity to show themselves in front of the scouts so those younger teams we. We don't value that bowl appearance as much. I can tell you this. You know that that's the that's the million dollar question. Adam is what the players want. I guarantee you that the coach wants because when the coach is going to get fifteen extra practices in December it is such a boost towards the next season getting those young kids in and and watching them play against the number ones against experienced veterans. Because remember when you get into spring practice this is your missing although seniors that left and when these freshmen are practicing well. They're now practicing again. Backups they're not practicing and learning the experience. It's of practicing against the starters like they do when you get to. The ball game practices anything else before we break down a couple of specific games here for this week that you WanNa touch on again at this time of the year. You've got weather considerations keep in mind but also your power ratings. Maybe lose a little bit of value. Just because you're trying to figure out you know you might Clemson for example I can't power rate them high enough I can't do it right now. To get the spreads that they're being asked to cover and of course they're covering bring them rather easily. Do get that at this time of the year. Two where teams are actively looking to run up the score because they need the style points. Yes and no I mean when you're the the top four you don't need the style points when you're Clemson Ohio state and Lsu. All you need to do is win out. Its those other teams that are in the second level you know well I actually do have clemson high enough. You know my this past week. I had fifty three at rutgers. I had northwestern thirty eight so my my power ratings in fact I left off a lot of winners last week where Iot differences at the end of the week by three or four points and they weren't that big of a difference different early in the week and those lines move so much so there was some power I left off and in fact right now I I dropped Ohio state down one with the rutgers game I moved up Clemson couple I now have clemson at How One oh five and Ohio state at one? Oh four so I actually have clemson now ahead of Ohio state for the first time this year. But if the two teams played in the semi-final you would not expect Clemson to be minus one right. Well you know you know we're going to learn a lot we're going to you know Ohio states going through the ringer right now clemson. We don't know what we have. Hell you know you you're done. You're season's over you have South Carolina and you have an ACC championship. No big deal. Ohio state's GonNa Have Penn state meant Michigan and Minnesota. They may have the toughest three game stretch. There is an olive college. Football let alone a team in the AP top twenty or a team that's wants to go potentially to the playoffs offs. So if Ohio state looks good they're going to be ahead of me but we can see Ohio state. Get a couple of injuries and really get banged up these next three weeks clemson's not how can have that as an issue I guess. What are they gonNA ask you about? Is the teams. Do get a sixth win. Now they don't really have to play with that pressure pressure but teams that play free and easier usually a lot more dangerous than that team with. Its back up against the wall and also you can improve your bowl standing so those teams it get to that magic number you looking to play on them more than play against them. You know. It's not a situation that I've looked at and I'm going to try to as we're talking. I'm going to try to do that and will will go into our first game at them and I'm going to try to do two things at once and we'll we'll figure it out as we're talking about one of the Games are sounds good. Yeah I was just curious risk again. I mean you know you're talking about a team that's no longer really playing with pressure. It's just about trying to get to a more attractive bowl destination because you know some of them aren't particularly great right and some of them are really great to get to. So maybe that is kind of angled for us to explore a little bit here as we go along on. Today's show but I want to start by asking you about TCU WHO and Oklahoma Game One thirty seven thirty eight. And it's been fascinating to me to CDs Oklahoma Lines get bet up with the defense kind of struggling a little bit with the offense going in spurts. They'll play one good half they'll play one bad half. That is what we saw from them against Baylor last week whereas TCU has been a popular popular sharp side most of the year here. Oklahoma seventeen and a half up to is eighteen and a half for this week's game against the horned frogs. I looked up an angle on this because I know you wanted to talk about it. So here's what I looked up. I looked up home favorites from week. Ten on that are often away win when both teams were ranked in the AP top fifteen so. Obviously Oklahoma was often away when both both teams were ranked your later in the year so the rankings meet a lot more and now you're a home favourite and I saw the record and I saw Oh nineteen eighteen and nine thirty two point one percent. That's a fate against Oklahoma up but a lesson for all our listeners. When you're looking at trends ends in angles and you have to look at the current form compared to the entire period of time since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight from one thousand nine hundred ninety eight to two thousand fourteen? Eighteen that angle was to eighteen from two thousand fifteen to now. It's gone seven one and one the exact same mm-hmm angle so to eighteen for sixteen years seven one one the last four seasons. What's exchanged why could tell you one thing that's changed? You know not that entire period of time is the college football playoffs one team. One thing that has changed since two two thousand fifteen is the domination of Alabama and Clemson. They are on the list multiple times so you know when when Paul up somebody's angles and we're talking about are a record back back to one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. It doesn't mean that that trend is still valid because of that so just just some some note on that you know before we jump into this. Adam I'm GonNa give you some Kudos. Let me give you what we just talked about before we move on you are in the month of November. You have six wins on the season. You are off a previous win so you just got your six win and now you are a favourite part one hundred twenty and eighty exact sixty percent against the spread. So we're not talking eighty but hey if you've got a situation sixty percent against the spread and at the situation that you like those teams this week are going to be Miami of Ohio. Arkansas State Washington in Miami of Florida Iowa State Louisville. Byu So if you like those games in the mix just something for you to think about interesting. I mean it does make sense because again you know you you know you're going to a bowl game now and you know that you can improve the bowl bowl game that you go to and of course to you pick up a six win already with two weeks left in the regular season. You're probably a pretty decent team and you know maybe you're playing a team that has quit on the season because your favorite or maybe you're playing a team that is one of those marginal types of teams so that angle does make a lot of sense and I'm happy to hear it and again that's one of the important things about being able to look this stuff up is that you make it an idea in your head and you may say oh that sounds like it makes sense. Sometimes it will. Sometimes it won't it but it's nice when it is quantified and it does a pretty good angle and I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA put one more scenario in there that we just talked about you know. Originally I ran the month of November Iran from week. Eleven on so. We are in week thirteen now so from week. Eleven on that. That record actually goes to sixty three point six percent so if you are week eleven twelve or thirteen like we are now and you are just off a win. It's been even stronger so we twelve on so if you're in your final week. Two percentage actually goes down so it seems to be Very very good situation as you talked about all right. Let's Talk Games I'm GonNa Fade Oklahoma Mode. You know you look at what they've done on and the last three weeks three point win a one point win seven point loss. The Texas game was seven points. You know those are your only true competition you have a defense and that is just giving up four hundred plus yards the previous two games. We know they held Baylor but Baylor was in a pressure. Pack situation. Shen where you know. You're in an area that you never thought you would be talk about. Lamb who missed last game If they miss him again they're going to be in a different situation and I look at Tcu. And you know going to Texas Tech and getting the win and the Baylor's the tough loss and Oklahoma state's the tough loss awesome Iowa state's a tough loss at SMU tough loss. You look at every lost. They've had they've not had a loss With the exception of the Iowa state game by seven or more so It's a situation where I think. Do going to be able to score enough to keep a close you know obviously you have Oklahoma state on deck if you're ou you you survived and while people are going to say well. Oklahoma does need do have style points because they're going to be one of those one loss teams that potentially benchley has to go up and compare their resume to Bama or some other one loss teams. Just because you're in that position doesn't mean you you can always do it and this is one of those things too. I know you do the College football guides and the stats sheets and all the different stuff that you do over there wagertalk. Oklahoma is a very popular team yards per play differential standpoint. They are incredible so they take a lot of early week. Money from the quad crowd that does wind up bumping these numbers up a little bit as the habe capping. Crowd comes back in the middle of the week. You start to see a little bit of money come in against Oklahoma or maybe maybe that money just doesn't come in and they don't like the spot so a lot of early week Oklahoma moves. That aren't necessarily true moves. They're just based in the statistics for the season. Well the interesting thing about Oklahoma is it's diff- isn't that good because because it's their offense that's incredible they're at a historic pace. I tweeted this out last week. You look at almost Oklahoma's yards per play on offense are I went back the last eleven years. No one was higher than seven. Point seven yards per play on offense each of the last three years. Oklahoma's been eight eight point nine nine point one and I think nine point five yards per play. So when you're putting up a first down every play you run that that's going to put you in historic doric perspective. Buckeyes are Buckeyes. Are Number one in in the yards per play diff- and you know they I. Ah You look at the buckeyes right. Now they're number one and offense of yards per play their number one a defensive yards per play the top four in yards per play diff- Ohio state. Three point six CLEMSON. Excuse me Ohio State. Three point seven Clemson three point six Oklahoma three point four Alabama three point zero and then Utah two point seven. UCF Two point five Lsu two point three so all that's been made of that LSU offense they're only plus two point three yards per play diff Just ahead of Georgia Oregon Memphis Baylor in Louisiana. Lafayette et speaking at UCF. Let's talk about them here for a couple of minutes game one seventy nine one eighty. This is an interesting one because we've seen a lot of sharp money. Hit the board word on two lane over the course of the season so far this week this line hasn't moved off six with. Ucf a road favorite going down to the big easy there to take onto onto lane. What do you think about this game here I have again? I think I think to lane has been overrated. I look at you know what they did against temple. I couldn't believe they were that road favorite They've lost three of their last four games. Yes all three have been on the road but this. This is a young team that Willie Fritz is starting to learn how to win and I. I don't understand why they're getting so much love. I mean their numbers. Are that good yet. Their home road dichotomy is incredible at home. Five hundred forty one yards per game on the road three seventy eight but I think that has to do with competition as well. You played your tougher competition down the stretch I think. UCF's in a position of been there done that they're looking through and they say well this happens in this happens and this happens and we still can get to the title game at least that was in the paper today. So someone's buying into that but you know you see the difference difference with the nights. This year is their defense. You know you look at you. Look at Uconn getting four hundred twenty six yards and that was like what the hell was that couple couple of weeks ago and and then East Carolina getting four eighty three. But you know they've gone to this rush attack lately and they've ran the ball over forty times five of the last six games. They have four. We're running backs all over. Four hundred yards all averaging over five point six yards per carry. All of them are going to be healthy this week and when that running when that running attack Jack allows your defense to be on the field for fewer plays it showing that we have a very good defense this. UCF defensively allowing three point point four yards per carry only allowing fifty four percent completions. We know two lane wants to run the ball I think. UCF can shut them down. And do that and I do like I do like the Golden Knights here or just the nights I should say all right so let's Talk College basketball here as we transition to a very different kind of sport but stay in the college ranks and we talked on yesterday's show with Kyle Hunter about all the unders that we've seen here so far this season so outside of that Ralph. What else stands Out To you in terms of the first couple of weeks of the college hoops season you know. There's there's not. There's not that much I mean you know. We're we're seeing some upsets and and you know. I think the biggest thing is this is coaches are now recruiting credit transfers. They're setting up their sister. lineups transfers it used to be in college basketball if you had a a team with five. Returning starters are four returning starters. Are The point guard playing a team with zero returning starters or one returning starter with no point guard. It was almost an automatic play on but we're seeing teams like Memphis that return. No starters is that are bringing in the Grad transfer is in the freshman Nevada's another one. Nevada is a team. That ridiculous doesn't return any starters but how they're very competitive because of their grad transfer. I and we're seeing so many more grad transfer kids used to you. Know kids used to stay now. They're gone they transfer and and they get to go in a situation -TUATION THEY WANNA go and Hella kid gets on the Grad transfer and everyone's just jumping out and recruiting them. We're seeing a football. You know. Look at the quarterbacks that have gone you know. Oklahoma has a sign up. Grad transfer quarterback needed next year. You know they know they're going to need one and who's going to be that maybe Ohio state the same thing so it it really is returning. Starters is becoming such a fake number where you know next year. I'm going to have to Redo the way I I do. My guide you know. We'll do percentage minutes back and then list the you know. List the Grad transfers. That are there. So it's just GonNa take a little or work take to get that first week or first couple of weeks under your belt and college hoops. You feel like you're starting to settle in a little bit here. I know obviously it was a very tough opening night. I I know you're very honest and transparent about that. But since then you feel like things are becoming you know more of the status quo that you expected. Yeah I've been on a thirteen and eight runs since that opening putting over and I again you know this is college basketball. I'm not worried about an old for for my season long record to me. It was just so devastating because I had so many first time customers on and you can only make you can only make a first impression once and there's a lot of guys that you know you know for like that they're never going to be back with you ever again. They're just is gonNA say screw you and they remember that but you know it also it also you know reading the write ups people say oh. Yeah well these three teams actually lead at halftime and we the only lost this game by a point or two point so you know it depends on what level of of of customer you have and that helps you move forward but absolutely absolutely in sync. Now you know looking for the value where they're still there with the You know we're we're still seeing value with with coaches being changed and styles being changed you know I guess the one that jumps off the page to me is you know krona going from Cincinnati at Ucla and you know we saw them have have many more unders early because they just can't make the line low enough thinking that this running ucla team is turning to the Cincinnati team of old so so learning what we are. We still have our mid majors. That are surprising us. Kentucky's upset you know. Evansville is a very good team. MM-HMM I was actually on them last night with a loss against SMU but There's a handful of mid majors that are still there and the biggest thing for me is is the the number of Grad transfers this year. and and how they're changing the way you have to look at the college basketball. The preseason on it's interesting to given that we're not going to talk about but one that I did preview over banged the book dotcom Here Today New Mexico and Utah a couple of teams. That have really hit the Grad transfer market hard. That's expected to be one of the top game tonight. But what are the other games that everyone has an eye on this evening. We'll talk about a game for Tuesday night one for Wednesday night and also one for Thursday night here to finish up the show. Sixty sixty five sixty six Furman and Alabama this one was Alabama minus three now up to his highest four and a half out there in the market as NATO's is kind of off to a little bit of a slow start trying to mold his team into what he wants for those that followed the Buffalo Bulls last year. You know that temple wise. They were one of the quickest teams in the country. While tell you what NATO is. Now the coach of Alabama and NATO's is going to be one of the quickest teams in the country at Alabama. The problem is his guards. Can't handle it. Twenty two turnovers against Rhode Island and. He said they're going through growing pains. You have a transfer Jonathan Query from Villanova five star recruit. He had not been eligible yet. He may be eligible for tonight. So so that's a big. If if he plays Alabama better team you UH solve another point guard belbow golden. He's a game. Time decision with an injury of both of those guys are out. I like Furman firm. It's four no four Thurmond's fifty two and eighteen under Bob Ritchie. As a coach they can go on the road and win but with this game. It's it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a late game for me to see and make sure you check out query if he becomes eligible and and James Bell bolden the transfer from West. Virginia if those two are both out I'll be jumping on the firm inside. Now we talk about it. We talked talked about this a lot with our mutual friend. Brad powers about how difficult it can be defined injury information in college football. Do you find a good resources for for college basketball. I'm for finding out injuries. No I don't. It's just a lot of work a lot of newspapers that it's a lot of going through twitter and even then you you know. Oh you don't find it. 'cause coaches and teams are aren't going to tweet out. I if if the players hurt you know I it really is. There's just a lot of reading and There's oftentimes where I find that. The opposing beat writer covers the team better and has much more honest about injuries than the team beat writer. The team beat writers in the papers covering these. These guys dailies talking to the coaches. And you know he's giving a lot of times at the beginning of the season he's writing is forecast with rose colored glasses on where a you know an opposing writers GonNa say Hey Listen Illinois. Chicago was without four returning starters. Two weeks ago in their first two games. You know. Now's the opportunity. Did get them. They're going to get to back this week. So we'll see what happens so Don't stop at reading your local beat writer. Make sure you read the previous beat writer for the game before and what. The preview is in the opposition's newspaper. So we look at Wednesday night's Card here here in college basketball obviously know wines out for these as of yet. They'll come out here sometime this afternoon but some of the things that we talked about last week. Show Georgia Tech Back in Georgia game. We're going to talk a little bit more about here in a couple of minutes Portland Portland State San Diego State San Diego Belmont and Lipscomb a lot of these really it cross town types of rivalries or you know little brother big brother or something like that a lot of those games popping up here at this time of the year like I said well focus on Georgia Tech and Georgia though do you handicap these games any differently when you know there are some revenge angles or anything like that well. I don't have any revenge angles that I can share with you. And and say and and it just really depends where the coaches are. And how many starters starters the teams had back and how experienced they were. You know Georgia's now won four straight against Georgia tech and covered four straight. And in fact you know they've won in those last four games all by double digits averaging sixteen points per game. They've covered them. They've covered all four by over fifteen points per game. But in this situation here if I can get Georgia tech plus four or more I will be on them. I'm I'm looking at Georgia. And you look at a three and a record and you may think wow this Torino records impressive with a nineteen point win with a nine point win with a thirty thirty four point when well when you look at their strength of schedule. They've played the number three hundred. Fiftieth you know basically the lowest schedule Joel. When you look at the defenses? They've played they have played. The weakest slate of defenses in the entire country western Carolinas the defensive efficiency three twenty eight citadel. Three forty six Delaware three fifty one. You are now playing a fired up in state rival. That's lost four Warner. Oh and they have the number forty one defense with Georgia Tech. You're only to know but you've been tested you played A ACC game you went into NC state and you won in overtime. That's impressive to me. That gets you ready to take on this Georgia team. You you then come home. Is there a letdown after that. NC State win new UBT Lon handily by twenty three. I'm going to grab Georgia Tech plus four or a more potential. They'll be on my card is. Is this about the time of the year where you start looking at some of the strength of schedule matches then we only when they're are this obvious. Only when you can't look statistical profile of Georgia and say oh my Gosh are plus thirty. Two points per game without looking at the. They played the week schedule. There is and you know anyone can tell you if you have three easy games. And they're all at home. You know A- and you're not you're not even tested going into game four. That's a difficult thing to do. You know the other thing is just just look ahead. Georgia Played those three week foes they got Georgia tech now and then they play their first neutral game next Monday against Dayton. That's the game. They can easily lose as well all right one more game. I WanNa talk about that. I just WanNa talk in general about something coming up here this weekend but that game is Texas and Georgetown and correct me. If I'm wrong this one at at Madison Square Garden with a pretty good match up here. Between the LONGHORNS who've been very very good so far here at the outset of the season and Georgetown with Patrick Ewing really trying trying to build this program up a little bit. What do you think about Thursday night's game there between those teams well to me? It's it's one of the biggest edges there is and the reason is what did Texas just do last year. Oh Yeah Texas didn't make the NCAA tournament they were pissed off about that. What happens to the? Nit what do they do they win the nit where were their last two games in the nit Madison Square Garden. So Oh you have a team that just went to Madison Square Garden for the Final Four for the nit championships now starts this year fired up because they didn't make the tournament shocker. Aca Smart another team removed your four. No you're already went to purdue handle yourselves on the road you took care of the teams. You were supposed to at home you know northern in Colorado not a horrible team Kale Baptist. Not a horrible team did what you had to against Pereira view. You have no one on deck. Because you don't have your mcneese state that's another nine dazed aced and with Georgetown. You Know Georgetown already has one loss to penn state and I look at Georgetown. And it's not that often that a player's slump concerns me but you read the Georgetown papers and Mack McLarty one of their starters who had nineteen doubles night scored in double figures Nineteen Times Times last year scored over twenty three times. He has really struggled. He's shooting under thirty percent. Patrick Ewing says we have to get him to stay in there but when he's he's in there he's a defensive liability so the shock a smart defense against the Georgia Front court Mack McLarty struggling for Georgetown Texas XS back in MSG. I will clearly be on Texas. I will probably. I'll be looking delay anything about six or less in that range. All right so something you and I talked about off air last week because we were kind of wondering when this would start to be a thing a lot of early season tournaments here that start Thursday Friday the Bahamas Montego Bay couple of them in South Carolina. What is it? You're looking for to play or against these teams when they do have to play these backpacks or three threes in these tournaments. It's just box score study. There's there's there's nothing that I can say. Hey you know the favorites. The dog's the revenge is the seconds two thirds. It's it's just looking at matchups You know when you have some of these big mismatches. It's hard to know what you get out of a team but a lot of times. These tournaments are are pretty equal where there's people in the same categories and it is just looking at how many minutes they played what what kind of point guards they have. It's still early in the season The teams that play better defense is usually something I look at because you know the offense. What's your legs can get tired shooting? Threes your defense. You seem to keep the same intensity so no secret at all. It's reading the local papers as well as the local schools papers. You know even the Bahamas you go and read some of the Bahamas newspapers. They have good stories on these teams. They have beat writers. They're excited to do it. And and sports writers not beat writers but That cover these games and give you a little trinkets of of what's going on in the Games and also so you know who they have ahead when you're looking at a team and they're playing an opponent that they know they're going to beat and they have a tougher suffer game on-deck. There's many times that I look and perhaps might play a first-half play because you're GonNa go full bore in the first half but in the second second half when you know you're playing a second back to back you may start getting a few guys in there that you may need the next day that haven't played the minutes because you're games have been spread out out so again knowing what the schedule is who you play if you win. Because they all know who they play if they win. The coaches are already scouting them and will continue to scout them during the tournament. But who you have on deck is as important as who you played Ralph. Michaels professional eighty per over at wagertalk dot com. It's over there right now. Our off you know again at college. Football's winding down guys. But if you've not been there the power ratings I could care less if you like him or not. The college football that compares she to me is just still so valuable because you're looking at strength the schedules and these stats that. They have check accounted a little later today I will have an NFL. Last five weeks I will have only the NFL stats for the last five weeks. So you're gonNA yards per game diff- yards per play deaths where their offense ranks where their defense ranks and when you get into November and December in the NFL if you find teams that over the last four or five games has has an advantage rushing with their offense against a defense and has an advantage with their rush defense fence against the opposition's offense. That's something you WanNa look at very closely. This time of year wants to make sure that you're falling Ralph on twitter as well at CAL sports. It's L._V. Ralph MICHAELS WAGERTALK DOT COM.
