Yes airplane food and it gets into how we went from fine dining in the skies to lukewarm mystery meat under tin foil and they also explored the science of how cabin pressure affects our sense of taste and how those little packets of nuts became such a staple of commercial air flight is just fascinating and i love it when i learned something but it feels like i'm just listening to someone.

"At eastern behrman. Well, we got to hear times breaking this story that President Trump may have tried to interfere in the Cohen investigation to now. Just continues doesn't it? I am. So curious if that will play out, but Robert Mueller special counsel has been investigating a conspiracy or alleged conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia there have been several hundred indictments total handed down. Now, a number of people have been indicted, some guilty pleas have come out of it. Well is he wrapping things up as as a conspiracy. Ben proven joining me on the phone right now from slate. Ben Mathis, Lilley, Ben, thanks for coming on the show today. Hey, thanks for having me. So I I thank you for using the word conspiracy. I am one of the weirdoes who endlessly argue stop saying the word can collusion that is Firmin anti-trust act language specific to antitrust law has nothing to do with what we're talking about here. But so thank you for that and your headline. But so so where are we are we how do we know for close? Well, we don't know for sure because as many aspects of the investigation Muller council office is it's not saying, however, there are some signs that we're getting to the end one rod Rosenstein is leaving the Justice department and you spend supervising investigation. So he may feel that his his work is done. It's coming coming to a close aren't a lot of reports have grand jury activity outside of a few cases that don't seem to be Gregory related to the most central aspects of the case. You know? And and there's not there's just not that many people left to a date. That's the other thing. Roger stone has been indicted. Obviously, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn has had Michael Cohen has been indicted charge, some pleaded guilty. So, you know, there's not a lot of a lot more work to be done. Or at least. It doesn't seem that way. I wanna I wanna just ask someone. I ain't Ben are are you as shocked as I am that there are people on the right? Who are saying how dare we put Paul Manafort imprison after he tried to undermine our democracy effecting, three hundred twenty million people, and they're like, yeah. He doesn't deserve this kind of time. I actually went after Buck Sexton this weekend on Twitter, and I who defends people who tried to undermine our democracy who. I I mean, the only thing I could think of to say that all the NFL you spend around Washington DC, a long time and a lot of money. And so, you know, that's the kind of thing that can make you come. I guess, but yeah, it does seem like the evidence that is has been discussed and presented in court against Manafort is is pretty expensive. Yeah. It's it's ridiculous. Let's just say it that way how much there is it's overwhelming. And the judges have been rather vicious now that he went back on his agreement to cooperate. Ben Mathis Willie's joining me on the phone right now from slate. So all right. So conspiracy is is an interesting charge in what we've heard so far at least that I've heard I it's hard for me to say that we've ever tied this back to Trump himself. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah. So I I there's a there's a lot going on. There are a lot of red and at night, you have a conspiracy charge would be according to federal prosecutors better. Prosecutors who have talked about that it putting it all together if you know that someone else's is committing an illegal act, and you agree to that whether explicitly or implicitly you are because you have become part of that conspiracy. So the question is whether a number of of actions that Trump took his cO senior advisors cook would constitute conspiracy and an answer I come to in my article. Well, maybe if you if you look at certain things a certain way, I don't think anyone thinks it's a slam dunk case yet. But then again, there's there's maybe more that we don't know about the evidence that yet to come out. What isn't that one of the keys in the hallmark in all of this Ben Mathis Lilley as joining me on the phone? He's article in slate is Robert Muller might be wrapping things up has he proved a conspiracy between Trump and Russia. That's the Kirs Muller. If you want to be the opposite of Trump, nobody has leaked anything from this Muller investigation. So it's it's hard to know exactly what he has. We can only glean things from these court filings and read between the lines, and although the latest about Roger stone is pretty damning connecting Roger stone GRU and WikiLeaks and everything else in Roger stone being a lifelong confidant an adviser of President, Trump, etc. It seems almost impossible that if Roger stone Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen at cetera have done all of these things. How it almost seems beyond logic that Trump when would know nothing of all these things. Sure. I mean, it does it does defy belief. Yes. And I think there are a number of of public reports that you can point to to show that Trump was was or may have been part of a conspiracy. Certainly he knew about the existence of the stolen emails still materials to Hillary Clinton's advisers democrat. National committee. He talked about that during the campaign. He in fact in courage, Russia to hack more emails. He said it, you know, so much each asleep. But it obviously indicates that he knew what was going on in at least some sense, and he was aware of a project to build Trump Tower in Moscow, we know that he signed a letter of intent to become part of that project. So yeah, there's there's evidence here, and there that he was at Billy aware of Russia's intentions in the two thousand sixteen campaign and also at the least did not attempt to dissuade them from what they were doing or report their outreach to the FBI. And and then there's some suggestive evidence we don't have made it a full store yet. Because we don't know, for example, what Michael Flynn testified to but that he actively actually encouraged his campaign advisers to to tell the Russians that they could get sanctions relief, for example, if he would have the competitive, so yeah, there's a lot. It's tying him there. On on the record. But there could be more material that we don't know about depending on how certain people testify or what was gathered by by the special counsel. Yeah. Can be fascinating to see how it all plays out. I mean, it's just we're we're waiting right now. We're just wait hoping that Bill bar will allow the new attorney general will actually allow the report to come out. I mean, what do you think that will actually happen? Am I guess, you know, just bist purely my speculation based on what we know about more is that he he may not go out with a bang in the sense of filing reported, forcing it to become public. You know, I think that the way to think about it that I've adopted is that in all this court filings. He's essentially writing the report says a national security writer in mercy Wheeler has suggested other people's kept it if you look at the Manafort indictment in the filings, and he escapes you look at the indictment of Cohen. And and all this material you start to see the entire picture and in a way that will maybe more. Thanks, even if he ultimately does not release a single report after Justice department chooses not to release that report. Really? Appreciate your time today. Excellent work in slate. Of course, Ben Mathis, Lilley, Ben. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Absolutely. Well, coming up in just a moment to a couple of things. I want to mention before we go too far down this path. I want to mention something I agree with the Trump administration. I just every now, and then those rare moments where I can say, I agree. But the president went after say live again and Alec Baldwin is expressing what I consider to be genuine concern. Should we be concerned? When the when the president is attacking like, this is is it a genuine threat to people's safety. Four one five eighty eight ten. Ethan Bearman on K.

"The lack of negotiating with drug prices farmers. Keep your on the ball or the medical device tax massive subsidies to the insurance companies. The whole thing was a compromise Bill. Do you have some money tied up in a Worcester medical device company that you're downplaying? But from my standpoint, the medical device tax repeal, the Massachusetts charter calf are specially unjustified policies. First of all the fact that that charter schools in Massachusetts, do marginally better than public schools for kids. Even if that was provable does not mean that capping how many students go into charter schools is a bad policy that just doesn't follow. On twitter. Chait was questioned about this. Like, dude. There were two powerful interests one that had more money than the other. And she went with the one that had the less money in this fight in Massachusetts. And his response was fascinating insight. It's behind there. It's it's behind the it's behind the razor ones on the left under. No, I guess it isn't sorry. His responses fascinating. And it was fascinating. Because he doesn't realize what a cell phone. It is aside from it being something that he writes. So someone says to him. Oh, he's talking about. Incidentally, the forces that were four this were hit with the largest fine in state campaign history for a legally hiding the identities of its billionaire donors. And Ben Mathis Lilley says if it's selling out to the powerful to not support that group, it seems like maybe selling out is not the right frame for that issue. And shade says the interest group in this issue holds power over warrants political futures the teacher's union, if it was Republican the calculus would be different the donors to the charter schools may be rich, but they're interested in this issue is philanthropic making it quite different than an interest group protecting its own income. Now, here's aside from. Astronomically? Disingenuous appeal couple of Pinocchio is there a couple of Pinocchio. Okay. Because the donors to charter schools in Massachusetts in the charter school first of all they're not donating to the charter schools. They're donating to a political action committee or trying to expand charters comments. They want to privatize you dense moron. And they want to do this in other states where they make a ton of money. So, but even if we were to believe that the reason why these billionaires are all giving money to the charter movement because it's a philanthropy throw throw pick. Endeavor. And that they are giving the money not to the charter schools themselves. And of course, not the public schools with no strings attached. But to the political action committee supporting charters, even if we were completely moron enough to believe this. This last part making it quite different than an interest group protecting its own income. What he's saying is that when you're talking about protecting your own income, and you're advocating for something that is extremely suspicious. That is extremely suspicious. And so when you have a scenario where someone's advocating for something like that. And their income is in any way involved. You should not take what they're saying seriously or at being in any way, an honest reflection of their opinion. Well, sadly, Jonathan shades wife. Works for charter schools. This is the same guy who like was like, oh believe we. It is by Kurt boss is that ISIS ball. I ever had. I happen to believe that it's possible. That the teachers even though the teacher's union, even though it would protect their own income that they actually have the education of students in my that's a big reason why you go into education, but for the cold card current, this is the George Mason economics. Also by the public choice theory. Of course is all that is doubly ironic because she worked for charter school for for. Wildly irresponsible. If New York magazine, not to make him disclose that in this piece. Absolutely. Every time he writes about charter schools should be saying, I'm not the kind of scab to like try to tweet it someone's employer in an effort to get them fired. But if I'd scab on anyone it would probably be Jonathan shake because he's also a scout described earlier this scab scabs, the scabs scab. But but also like the only thing Jonathan Chait is ever done. That has like any credibility is writing. I mean, frankly, pretty easy pieces about libertarian economics is delusional. And here he is forwarding it in the entire public education arena without disclosing a massive conflict of interest..

"I'm just gonna look over Mike Zimmerman Alicia Montenero on the other side of the glass, I could see this little prompt the board, Michael we're gonna thumbs up on the calls. John is in Toronto. John you're on CBS sports radio. Hi, thanks for taking my call and happy new year to all of you there at the station. I just wanted to make some comments with respect to your opening comments about it's Bergen Ben Rothlisberger. And Mike Tomlin. Sure. First of all, I disagree with you entirely. When you say that then Big Ben didn't have a good year number one. He threw for more touchdown passes than any other. Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback has in the history of the franchise. He set a record this year shocking in throwing gauge the NFL couldn't believe he'd do that. Secondly, he threw for over five thousand yards this year. Right. So he's one of eight quarterbacks who did that in the history of the NFL. Nah. The third point is that for much of the year. He led the league in passing yards per game at approximately three hundred and thirty yards per game. I'm not sure about the last couple of games, but he was leading the league. So to say that he had a bad year or to say that he's in decline. I think you're wrong. All right. Well, John this is a classic example of not always reading stats and watching games. I didn't say Ben Roethlisberger had a bad year. I said Ben Rothlisberger was wasn't exactly great this year. Okay. There's a big difference between that and it wasn't bad. He wasn't Blaine gabbert, but if you wanna point to yardage and yards per game. Take a look at the yak the yards after catch which count towards Ben Rothlisberger yardage of Antonio Brown and juju Smith Schuster. Because they get a ton of it. He has to game-breaking wide receivers. And obviously, I as we've are now Antonio Brown's a total clown, but talent wise where they're going for those yards after catch, and that's only going to enhance Ben Rothlisberger stats now a lot of quarterbacks get that benefit. But he's got not one but two big time guys li- manning, I hate to bring this back because another guy in the class. But I watched I've watched every game career an urban times rely shortage absolutely should be counted. But this year what people pointed to when when saquon Barkley has yards after catch that enhances his intently. So please don't come at me. With those stats again pen was terrible. Ben Mathis burger is declining as a quarterback. Let's scare people can't admit that. When they watch play is not as good as he was five years ago next year. He's not going to be as good as he was this year. That's only natural. When a guy is that guy continues to get up into his high thirties. Low forties. Heck, I'm not the same competitive eater. I was now was twenty eight. Could barely get through twelve dumplings. Dave is in Cape Cod. Dave, you're on CBS sports radio. Yeah. I was going again. I'm with you one hundred percent. I mean this team the Pittsburgh team that she ate the statute. But loses the wins and losses. He was seven to one at one point young. And what happened? Yeah. It's per game. Come on. I don't understand the yards per game argument there from I already forgot his name in Toronto. I want to get it in my eyes. It comes down to Tomlin. They haven't been the Super Bowl in like ten years. A lot of people make that jump to like how have they been list ten years? Well, then that super lost Packer. It's been over ten years since they've won a Super Bowl and Tomlin one that Super Bowl with obviously a lot of Bill Cowher's guys. And I'm not saying Tomlin's been a bad coach. But after ten years a lot of times. Yeah. The new voice McCarthy wasn't so easy to criticize Mike McCarthy, walks Rogers, didn't like him. But we can't criticise Mike Tomlin. Why why is that exactly? And again, he's weighing on his reputation from over ten years ago. But again, I mean, I know we're Tonio Brown can be told. But I mean on bell the young guys leaving and they're gonna stick day wags with Rothenberg who was going to be thirty seven thirty eight. Well, that's it. And if and thanks for the call, Dave if you stick with Rosberg, which they will look steals aren't going to say goodbye to Ben Rothlisberger. But in my opinion, if you really want to do this thing, right? You should absolutely dump Brown. But I think they all have a saying what's gone wrong here. And I only gonna get worse if you keep them altogether. But the reasons for stake in Rothlisberger number one you stick with them because if financially on that salary cap situation, if you trade one cut one it's going to be nearly possibly get rid of both Brown in broths Bergman. And if you're going to get rid of the one who's actually asking him to get him out of there because he's obviously the biggest problem if he's asked him to go number two, the other reason you wouldn't do that. As you drifted Mason Rudolph in the second round. He wasn't there. Number two quarterback, basically all season. If you spend that high draft pick on them, it might have been a third round resume. If you could check that out. Mason Rudolph in the second round or the Third Reich. I thought it was the second one. Maybe it was the third round. But when you trust the guy that high and you use that kind of pick. It's usually not just develop as a backup. Quarterback your develop your drafting him with the thought was a third rounder. Maybe like Jimmy Garoppolo with the patriots where you think eventually you quarterbacks getting older, and seemingly you will have a nice if you will switcheroo at some point when he's ready and Mason robes not going to be ready to start next year might be ready to back up next year. So I if the long term plan was you wanted to use Mason starting quarterback. You're not going to get rid of Ben Rothlisberger. Either. And you keep those calls coming at eight five five two one two four two two seven and I'm going to say five five two one two four CBS on what the Steelers should do. Now that Antonio Brown reportedly asking for a trade, but the college football playoff as we saw in full force on Saturday, by the way, I love the fact that the games for Saturday and not today on New Year's day because and we'll get them on New Year's day aplenty in the future. But look a lot of people have been offer week and a half. And is there anything worse than your hyped up for the cultural play if you sat there watching all those games on Saturday? And then if you're off a week and a half, and you to wake up early on the east coast and return to work on January second you got to stay up to what twelve thirty tonight to watch sugarbowl. I'd say that's a little ridiculous effect game counts for the college football play a little ridiculous. But be that as it may if it was anything like this year's pouch wildlife could have gone to better halftime spoilt those games stunk. And immediately following that to be one of the biggest conversations was well, what does this mean for college football expansion playoff expansion? Should they not expand? Now since we ended up with Clemson, Alabama and to blow blowouts. Well, I don't necessarily think that's what that means. I think it means. It's about getting the teams right because if you do expand, and you have any team playoff odds, are you probably going to get to blow outs, the one versus the eight and the two versus a seven probably end up in blowouts. But your odds increase that you're gonna get at least two really good games. So to me, it's not about necessarily expansion being the biggest problem. Although I do think it is a problem. The biggest problem is what do you do about Notre Dame? What do you do because Notre Dame now list twenty years it's been dreadful in these spots when we anoint them. You know, why because we have no actual proper way of grading them out. Now was it their fault this year that USC stunk with USC in the schedule? Now, they beat Michigan in week one. Sure. But again week one is basically like the preseason. So that you're not playing preseason games. Who knows you know, Michigan seemingly got better throughout the year knows how good Michigan really was. Anyway, when they end up getting blown out by Ohio State. But at least if you play in a conference and play a true conference, schedule not a half toe in the water ACC schedule where all right, we'll play Duke will play Wake Forest what play pitch or but then we'll go play USC, all they stink to share. But whatever that's kinda what Notre Dame is done and near refusal to commit to a conference, namely, the ACC when you consider volleyball and softball and basketball is all playing ACC schedules. This we gotta stick with history and not be affiliate with a conference. You know, what that hurts? Because you knew when Clemson dominated pitting their ACC title game that they belonged you knew for the most part that Oklahoma getting a second chance to Texas and beating him. Okay. They belong you knew Alabama after beating Georgia in a tight one. They obviously belonged you had no idea. Whether Notre Dame belonged based on an undefeated regular season. If Georgia was non-conference -ffiliated and played the Notre Dame schedule. You don't think Georgia's feed it? Oklahoma's probably undefeated that's scheduled don't have the loss to Texas. So to me, I know Notre Dame as their big fancy TV package and NBC and Notre Dame draws eyeballs. Heck, I went out to a sports bar for the games and in the northeast and New York boy, the only team of the four plane everybody seem to care about with Notre Dame. So I get that that carries weight, but the college football playoff now established self enough. At least that I would think on like a week three game versus ball state that the ratings should be pretty damned good. Whether Notre Dame Senator or not. The college football playoff has finally developed something where they can have the upper hand and Notre Dame. They don't need Notre Dame that dictate what they do. They're big enough on their own now. And if I am the college football playoff committee on the NC delay. Come I tell Notre Dame? Traditions. Be damned. Join a conference or you're not eligible for the college football playoff. You. Go point a ballgame. Maybe we'll put you in the Rose Bowl bend the rules on that a little bit. He'll put you in the fiesta bowl. You could take a spot of UCF go play in the fiesta bowl vs. Frigging Auburn at one in the afternoon, go do that. But you're not welcome in the college football playoff until you join a conference because if they were in the ACC, and we did get them in an ACC title game versus Clemson. Well, guess what that thirty two three could have been done with about a month ago and somebody more deserving could have been in a game instead of us being put to sleep before. Oklahoma. Eventually put us all asleep by get blown out by Alabama. That's it. The New York Yankees for years of one pinstripes and no names on the back of their jersey. But guess what Memorial Day rolls around?.
