I think for having us for some added context leon is also my wife and has been with our company almost since the beginning circus and you have a long impressive resume of all the things you do. Tell us a little bit about your background. Sure i'm actually coming to you from malawi in southern africa where have been living since twenty. Nineteen i'm actually Doing are in communication for two. Un organizations unfpa in unison have background is a university professor. And i'm scared to say that. It's been since two thousand but i was in my twenties when it started so i'm not that old i've been working with people on four continents students and other artists and workers. And what have you and soft skills. Actually a huge difference between someone doing really well and sort of fizzling out enough they're quote unquote really talented. Some looking forward to talking about it more. We actually found you through a highly rated you to meet horse titled soft skills clear success how to be excellent at work. How did you start teaching these skills. It's funny because your professors when you're in university probably one of their least favourite things they have to do. but we'll do is be an academic advisor. They tell you what classes you're supposed to take and if you get a good one the lawsuit can help you get into the career that you want and give you advice and i actually. Even though i wasn't looking forward to doing these meetings all day long. I found that i was actually quite good at it. And so alongside teaching our digital media illustration and animation. I found that my students were coming to me quite a lot for advising and i was teaching in new york city in new jersey and then for ten years in rome italy and then three years ago we moved to men mar and they're actually wasn't my field in the universities there so i started teaching for organizations and ad agencies. They're junior staff helping them. Be more confident at work. Be more able to ask questions able to give presentations basically not be so timid. So that's sort of how. I started with the soft skills class i. It was an online resource to a live training. I did in men mar and then once that was over i put it online and opened it up to a more international audience and now i'm helping also students here in malawi with that as well

"ben new" Discussed on Science Magazine Podcast

"Welcome to the science podcasts for October two thousand twenty. I'm Sarah Crosby. Weekly feature the most interesting news and research published in science and the sister journals. First Up, we have staff writer, Paul Ryan, he talks about the. Rex Mission to. The asteroid venue. was has been there since two thousand eighteen and will finally a sample on October twentieth few weeks away. What have we learned so far? We also hear from researcher Hubert Lamb about a new treatment for Tinnitus. What used to be called ringing in the ears the team uses by modal stimulation, laying sounds in the ear and buzzes on the ton to change the brain and turn down the Tinnitus. Now, we have staff writer Paul Loosen. He wrote a story this week on a stack of papers published in science and science advances on the OH. Cyrus Rex Mission to the asteroid Banu Hi Paul Hello Okay on the podcast we last checked in omnia Cyrus Rex Mission in December twenty nineteen, the craft had been orbiting and surveying this asteroid for quite a while and some surprising things that popped out. For example, there are small ejection events, tiny rocks, jumping off the asteroid and surprisingly big boulders littering its surface, and that's meant a change to plans for a sampling from asteroid. What's changed about that? Paul before the spacecraft reached do they had thought it would look like this kind of. Plane like a beach was kind of the infamous term that Dante Lauretta. used. Had all these boulders kind of shocking. These polders are safety hazard and there's no spot that reached the criteria for a safe approach from the original plans. So they've had to reduce the area that they will sample by ten times. So much smaller sample area they had to pick a site they had to figure out if the crash could actually land there, but it hasn't happened yet. We're not there sampling is coming up in a few weeks October twentieth. In the meantime, we have this package of six papers. They tell them more detailed story of the asteroid surface. It's gravity or about these boulders what did you find particularly interesting in this in this new information about the asteroid one big question with sampling asteroid and bring it back to Earth is why are you spending one hundred million dollars to get a sample when we have all the stuff on earth we have tons of meteorites on earth kind of the volunteer sample return. These papers really show examples of several things that could be caught these samples that you just wouldn't be able to learn from a meteorite thing that really stands out to me the mess of carbonate veins in these boulders. At the parent body, the kind of planet testimony that venue Brokaw from once this major water system, Moeen through it as an ancient water world. When you save veins, you mean, there's just like you know what does that mean? Exactly this bright slash linear slash of mineral that deferring from the rest of the rock it's different than Iraq and you think it's made of something that indicates water y. so these carbonates are known to perform from water from hot water in precipitate out that water, you just don't get them. So the same things are evidence of water on Mars as well, and it's not just a little rock in of water it's like a little river of water. Yeah, so the ideas from meteorites they'd always, yeah, there's on these asteroids, but there's only little tiny pockets that don't around you know a couple of millimeters or something like that. But this is kind of showing that these. Mike had at least the parent body of Ben New had water flow in throughout the whole asteroid and probably a lot more water than once thought this definitely connects to the main this mission. What can we learn from asteroids that we can't learn for meteorites, but it also tells us something about the formation of the solar system. Then like what was going on way back when when we had has mills running around the have there's there's also the story of the Solar System? Merged even as Cyrus rex was launching, they realize that asteroids like Ben New Form Beyond Jupiter and migrate all the way in this is something only emerged meteoroid stays in the past decade realizing they have these two separate pools of asteroids and the samples from Ben you might be able to actually say if that's true does finding this carbonate, these veins of carbonate support the idea that asteroids delivered water to Earth definitely in this is a fairly well accepted ideal already with this further bolsters that claim provides institute remote-sensing evidence of Hey these probably had a lot of water. So maybe this was one source of the water it's not. Definitively rule something out because who knows. Yeah, it's definitely a major support for that one. Sad. But here is the boulders aren't the exact target for sampling was ours rex is not going to land on a boulder if it's just not possible, but we'll still be able to tell us more about these veins more about water content more about carbonates from the sampling that a new. Yes. So the this instrument that they used to detect this carbonate I that came from a close fly over the sampling site earlier surveys have shown that it's covered in carbonates. Or carbon burying molecule. So that could be like organic compounds like amino acids, other stuff stuff that they expected to see but there are signatures of that throughout the asteroid. So even the pebbles will have some stuff we mentioned earlier that the parameters for where the sampling can happen changed. Once the crafts had reached asteroid what are the risks here as we get closer to the date? Is there still big questions about whether this would be successful or or how much you can get the definitely they've created this hazard map. Of, the sampling sites, this kind of pure circle of green there's a chance they come in to this red area that is hazardous, and then the spacecraft students. Autonomous Louis will waive itself off and kind of retreat back testing that five meters away, or there's the chance says, hit a boulder a little bit and skews needs to press flat against the surface to be able to suck stuff up. So there's a chance that doesn't happen. They've the ability to says, and then try again at a backup site in January. If it doesn't work out. There is a chance that these boulders are very soft, but we don't want to find that out by landing something on them. You know they're really curious why they got what Ben will look like. So wrong what the surface would look like one of these papers try and figure that out and it finds that a lot of these boulders are so porous that they're kind of fluffy. So they always look like what a beach might look like in the radar or infrared signal that they got. Of Ben who explains why they had this kind of signal suggesting a beach the spacecraft could probably crush these borders if rammed into them, but they don't WanNa do that. That makes sense. So l know how much they got, but we're GONNA have to wait for the analysis for quite a bit. It's due to arrive in twenty, twenty three in Utah. We should mention why it's autonomously sampling to near Earth asteroid but right now it's not near Earth and it's much farther than Mars from Earth right now, there's a about an eighteen minute lag between what happens there and wheel here. So all has to be done a ton misleading because of that is there anything else you think we could learn from the sampling? There's the question of these one of the sources of life, this kind of chemistry and that was going on in the. Early Solar System for these organic molecules that men were delivered to Earth. Maybe there's some way of teasing out what this looks like for the altered on impact with Earth could be something that holy surprising when you get those samples back. All right thank you so much Paul. Thank you haul in as a staff writer for science you can find a link to his story and the related papers and science and science advances at science mag dot org slash podcast. Stay tuned for an.

"You can't afford to lose that mission as if it's not pressure enough to successful launch this go. There's been this machine does that does it feel personal and when you think about like you're in charge of a program. That's trying to get this guy's life work into into space was not worthy for that reason and then also George Munro of of Goddard use this analogy one time in era offsite offsite. He said it's like we have the baby at Goddard and we've we've nurtured it but now it's time for us to give it up and we're nervous about that and we're handing it off to. You and we need to know that you're gonNA care for it like you know we did and and so I that hit home it wasn't like it was lost on us but just that an analogy was very very tangible and I think it's stayed with us. Thanks George so we mentioned Mars Twenty twenty coming up here really soon so thinking about other babies. You'RE GONNA have handed off to you or are in the process of taking taking. What are the ones that you're excited about so obviously thinking a couple years out. What are you looking at. I think we have nine or ten in the next eighteen next month. Yeah Yeah and we we do a maybe a little one to four two before. All of those big ones start is virgin orbit we've been working with them for a while to get a small launch vehicle capability the in place we had rocket lab electron launch in December of last year that was that was the first government launch on an electron and that was it was really exciting for those really really neat and so our next one would be virgin orbit that is rocket. That's launched under an airplane and we have some cubesats on that to test that out so we're hoping to see that towards the end of this year as well sometime after icon for me I really I really am looking forward to March twenty twenty. I don't want to beat that to death but it is really is really cool so I I just talked to someone on the phone about it and they he said that the scientists are maybe not so excited about this helicopter because there's no science that has to do with the helicopter interesting yeah but there was a whole report on on MPR recently that all they focused on was the helicopter because it's so exciting and it's really it'll be really neat. Well Yeah just track the public interest with yeah when when it you know it's up there and starts tooling around their Ram. It'd be pretty cool. Other aspects are the missions is that we've worked on that. Are you know still in the public guy and returning science and stuff. We've had you know someone in the organization. Shen in a meeting yesterday and she she talked about how excited she gets when she's listening to the radio or NPR and they start talking about like oh cyrus corrects and and she's like oh I remember we we lost that you know and it's it's about to you know it's around. Ben New and it's about to go in for the sample in about a year so it's those kinds of things parker go into the sun and and being able to talk so when we have outreach opportunities those are the fun things people beloved planetary and stuff but all the exciting missions. There's always something you know that excites the public about about the science land sat. Some of we've got a few earth-observing coming either. Ocean Orlando's those are coming those are pretty popular to solar orbiter for in February. That's a international partnership that we have and so the US provided the rocket and the European Space Agency's providing the space craft so that one's GonNa be pretty exciting. We'll have a lot of visitors here that they're gonNA see their spacecraft launched. This one's been on contract for a really long time they've been working really hard on it and they're really looking forward to February's launch beneath vinnie as I as I think back on kind of the more recent history of rocketry and what looks like it's coming in the future the near future. It seems seems like there's a huge shift in the landscape of available rockets. Obviously the launches themselves get people excited and it feels like we're going to have a very different pool of rockets here in the next couple years. Is that an accurate and and how does that impact you on your work. I think it's very accurate in fact we're in our ONRAMP onramp period for our for our contract so every once a year we allow new bidders to come in and join the contract okay they have to then bid for each and every mission so sure they're just getting the right to be on the contract at this point and some years go by where there's nobody. Nobody interested in joining. We've got record number. Probably I was GonNa Rockets. Yeah Yeah Yeah Pretty Amazing so tell me beyond that we can probably talk about. Honestly those kinds of things are really exciting for me. When it's like we have a lot in the mix we can't talk about. We're popular right now. Yeah Yeah Yeah so yeah so it probably is almost unprecedented in terms of how many new rockets are going to be out there and all different of the vehicle classes too so you we talked about rocket lab. We talked about Virgin orbit but you think about blue origins bring on the new Glenn which is going to be a huge capability. Mula has had rockets for many years between Boeing and Lockheed. They've got a new rocket coming online. Northrop Grumman has a new rock coming online firefly's a new company that it just took over the Delta too complex at Vandenberg. That's going to be launching rockets brand new ones and then incumbents that are changing their right right. It's pretty the amazing collection of what we're going to have now. I'm not sure how many satellites are out there to be launched on all of these so off to watch and see which which one actually makes it which ones actually make sure yeah so is there. Is there growth for L. S. P. Beyond simply volume of of throughput or is that really how he grows into the future sure that's a good question. I think when we think about L. S. P. Classic L. S. P. It's really and it still is the core of our business the science missions. I mean that's that's why we exist. That's why we started but the agency has expanded into so many other areas that are now using commercial rockets that it may not necessarily be the throughput of missions that we buy into end but the throughput of the type of service that we provide the agency is growing so if you look at the new Artemis Programme boots moon twenty twenty four going to Mars where right now in the throes of teaching people what else does who don't usually deal with LSP and don't know what we have to offer so that we can make sure that we provide some service for their launch vehicles so let me ask this question because when I I know pretty well what else does when I heard Moon Twenty twenty four and saw some of the manifest imaging comes some of the plans I was like I think Ellis is piece about to get busier. Did you'll feel similarly well. I think we felt boy. I hope we're going to get some of that work because they are are purchasing them a different way the normal they're buying an end to end service were typically science will come to us with their spacecraft and then we'll go buy them a launch vehicle in this case ace they're having the space craft portion of that by the entire service and so what we are trying to manage is how do we still provide our mission insurance on a rocket that is being bought a different way and so so we do actually we are a little bit concerned we had a strategic offsite with management and May and we talked about how busy were getting and we don't really want to grow the organization in size. We'd rather become more efficient at things in the news the resources that we have to be able to do the work on the new programs but there's a there's a ton of work. I'd say like you said that manifest. The number of commercial rockets on there is incredible and they're all going to be new rockets. The only one right now that has flown really is the as Falcon heavy right and it's only phone three times and there are no other rockets they're capable of taking these big masses to the moon in right now other than SOS of course but if there's one group that has the expertise and knowledge of either you know the current rockets or you know the derivatives. It's us so we're capability that should should be used should be a a big part of it and our minds but we do have to balance that work with you know the science which is why we're really here cool so as you both individually look to the future sure is there is there something else is there. Another level up is there. What is it fair question to move out of the way again. Oh boy then maybe it's retirement time. I don't know but one of the things that comes up a lot and now in these strategic off sites that we have is because a large large majority of the management within. LSP All started together twenty years ago. We're all close to retirement age together together and so the discussion quickly turns to we can't talk about when people are going but it's definitely something that's on the agenda end of succession planning because we are all able in the next five years and if there's a mass exodus what are we leaving behind behind are we are we leaving and and educating the people behind us well enough to for them to take our place and keep keep the year program running like it is so that's that's a constant agenda item at our meetings now. I honestly think I have like the best job the agency and I don't. I don't see why you would wanna go anywhere else. I mean where else can you work with all the science missions all the customers that we have all the people that we interact with the Enron air force everybody everyday's a challenge so I I see it as well sometime in that five years. Maybe there's some changes. Ellis people will see. I've been in my whole all career. I'm certainly not gonNA. Change saying it's given me a lot so all I'm doing now is going to be selfish. I'm not going to step out of the way very good. Thank you both very much. Obviously you guys put in time and effort. I'm sure blood sweat and tears so good luck. The next eighteen months sure so especially obviously we'll be keeping a close eye on your work as new new and improved rockets. Take flame sounds great thank you thanks for having us.

"And welcome back to coast to coast. Gordon Dila with us fire in the sky, Gordon. There is a danger to if you blow up an asteroid like Bruce, Willis did in Armegeddon, couldn't you possibly spread the pieces of asteroids. And you'd have more of a bigger problem, that's certainly a concern. He did it when it was too close to earth. It would take one big problem and turn it into maybe thousand smaller problems, but still serious problems. So that's something that, you know, scientists who are involved in this all the time since you've been looking into this, what are scientists telling you privately about this? Are they concerned about anything? They're scientists so do they don't they don't want to be, you know, chicken, little kind of things. But basically what they say, is by looking for asteroids now. It's sort of, like Mariners in the eighteenth century or charting, the recent shoals around the world. So that, you know, other ships could avoid them by by charting these tracking these things in denting. Now, we're kind of planning for the future. So if, if something, you know, looks like it's going to hit us in two hundred years, we'll, we'll have an idea and we prepare so they're, they're pretty. You know not not overly alarming about it, but they do understand that. There is a hazard, Gordon. Tell us what is the asteroid wargame and what's been going on in DC with these things. Well, last month, they had a planetary defense conference. They have these every couple years, and it brings in a couple of hundred astronomers astrophysicists, and other scientists, and disaster-management people from around the world to discuss what would we do? If indeed you, we detected an asteroid that was coming towards earth and each one, they, they set up an imaginary scenario. Okay. If this happens, then we do this, and if that happens we do that. And for the one the past months, the, the initial scenario was that an asteroid was detected while it was still about thirty five million miles away from earth about eight hundred feet in diameter big enough to take out a city. Sure. And they're the idea was that, you know, what are we going to do well, initially, they, they calculated that this asteroid was gonna hit Denver. And if it hit Denver would wipe out in the entire city and miles around, so there was some argument about what do we do about it? Do we send a nuclear device explosive device that nudge it out of its orbit? That's controversial because there's international treaties about militarising spades, putting nuclear weapons in space. So they decide to use what's called a Connecticut, impacter. And that's basically just cannonball technology. You send up an unmanned spacecraft with a big chunk of metal in it, and you run the thing head on into the asteroid. You ram it. I guess, right Ramat and the idea is not to destroy the asteroid. It's simply to slow it down by the tiniest fraction. So by the time the. The asteroid reaches its intended run viewpoint with earth. Vs already sailed buys is orbiting the sun in the asteroid this is. So that's what they tried to do technical. Almost like putting a retro rocket on the asteroid sort of sort of yet. Just changing the speed. So they, you know, they, they calculated all this, you know, throw away JR. And payloads and all this sort of stuff and in the scenario, they sent up this Connecticut impact, or to actually, several Connecticut packed or space vehicles. And it was successful. They managed to slow down the main body. The asteroid the problem was that one of the Connecticut Packers knocked off a chunk of the asteroid about one foot wide, so they save Denver. But the two hundred pounds shocked chunk traveled on and destroyed New York City a slight miscalculation. Exactly. And that's very conceivable. It's scientifically possible. Sure. I mean it's unlikely is unlikely but it is absolutely scientifically possible. I had heard that laser lights could also possibly push the astronaut of the ways that true. There's a lot of different techniques. You know, one that student MIT came up with was to bombar asteroid with white paint bull's, the idea being if you paint the asteroid white. It's going to change the way it absorbed light. And in that'll help push push it. The problem is that you would have to do that, maybe twenty thirty years. So for the victim impact, because it, it only pushes it just a tiny little bit. So that's a long term solution. You know what you were talking about lasers kind of the same principle, you heat up the surface, and that causes it to just slightly shift out of the out of its orbit. So there's, there's a lot of things, theoretically, they can do go ahead, the Japanese landed on an asteroid didn't they? A mission up there and we've got a mission to to it's called a, a serious wrecks, and it's is designed to right now. It's a spacecraft unmanned. Of course, that's or being a, an asteroid called Benue so relatively small asteroid and within the next within the next year or so spacecraft's is going to swoop down and scoop up some surface, apples from Ben new surface and bring him back to earth, so they can analyze the composition and they'll give him a lot of information as to what they're made of, and what's the best way to deflect them. And that's sort of thing. What do you think of the privatization of companies that think they're going to go to asteroids in mind them, and then bring the stuff back? Well, I think it's a great idea, George. I mean I haven't done any stock in them yet. But I think within the next ten or fifteen years, this could actually be possible. Really? Yeah. Yeah. It's been. I mean, they're, they're conducting these are serious people and they're conducting, you know, chests of the technology right now. And it could be enormously lucrative because a lot of these asteroids have iron and you know, other metals plus precious metals like platinum what the machine. How do you get the machinery out there and the work? I mean, Amazon's just experimenting with sending drones are ways with little packages. I heard you talking about that. And I can see drone, you know, getting caught up in the clothesline outback. Exactly. Ideally, this wouldn't happen with, with these guys, and it's going to take a lot of experimentation, but ultimately, I think is going to happen, how often do we get hit by asteroids, Gordon, even if they're really small every day. That's what I. Really small ones. You've seen meteors in this guy in the grayness. It's a spec Osama or something, isn't it? It's, it's extremely tiny, you know, those pieces of comets or asteroids that have hit the atmosphere. The thing is travelling so fast talking fifty sixty thousand miles an hour that is they're coming through the atmosphere regenerate heat. And that's what makes them white up now bigger ones, you know up to about. I don't know thirty feet something like that. And that's good size. Good size. They almost always burn up the atmosphere. What about like a baseball sized asteroid would that burn up to that would burn up? But it would it would probably make pretty pretty bite bright flash in this guy. I would think so. Yeah. You, you would think it was like a nuke detonated in the atmosphere. Yeah. And, and those happened somewhere on earth every day. A lot of times they aren't seeing. But back in December over the Bering Sea, there was an asteroid about twenty feet twenty feet diameter or something like that is exploded over over the Bering Sea with, I think it was the equivalent of about twelve here, Ashim, atomic bombs, and nobody saw it. It was picked up by some earth monitoring satellites and some sensor systems. But it's such a remote area nuit even saw the thing and asteroid the size of a football field three hundred feet long if it plowed into a city in Bombay or someplace like that would it take out that entire town total destruction on somehow my God in the crater itself would be how deep well you know, there's the, the best crater that, that we have is a crater called meteor crater in northern Arizona near you. Right. It's near me. Yeah. Then there many times. And it happened about fifty thousand years ago, and it was about half the size of the city block, maybe a hundred and eighty two hundred feet, something like that. And it left a crater that's almost a mile wide and several hundred feet deep idea, you can imagine, you know, a metropolitan area that had suddenly had a crater a mile wide and several several hundred feet deep can you get close enough to stand on the rim of that? Crater. Oh, sure. Sure. Could you fall into it? Will fall down. It's pretty steep was not roped off or anything. No, no, no. It's, it's run as a national kind of a national landmark, interestingly, it's privately owned is not part of the park service. Really, there's a. Yeah. There's a, a very nice visitor center, and, you know, you can go and take a tour and stand on the rim. And look through telescopes down to the to the bottom of the crater. It's I it, it's really exciting is like a gradual down to the bottom, or, you know, is it like cut off? Like you're standing on top of a building in New York and you look down. And you know, if you fall, you're gone, it's more like an amphitheater. Okay. So it's got kind of like a curve to it. Yeah. Kind of kind of sloping sloping walls. So if you fell into it, you really wouldn't slide all the way down, well, I dealing not George I might. Well, that's, that's pretty fascinating. Now, if one of these were hit, I mean when you talking about one hundred eighty feet wide, that's big for an asteroid. It's nothing big, but fortunately spaces a pretty big big place. I mean that's why they call space. So these. These things that they don't hit us that often as I said, the one that created meteor crater happened about fifty thousand years ago. There have been many since but meteor crater was sort of will preserved it was like it's, you know, it's in the Zona high desert. So it's sorta like it had Hanley instructions store in a cool dry place, so that one is almost perfect looking, but one that big happens, maybe every two thousand years, something like that. Gordon. What do you think happened to the solar system for two billion years ago when it was formed when you look at the moon, it is pocketed with craters I mean all over the place. What happened to it? And so would we be if, if we didn't have an atmosphere? That's true. And I bet if we drain the oceans, UT craters all over the place me might they might be filled in. But, you know, there's, there's hundreds of craters that have been found a lot of them you can't really see. You know, the kind of filled in by glaciation, they've been, you know, scrape flat or their underneath the ocean. But yeah, you know they look up at the moon and almost all of the craters up there. You can see either through a telescope for Benach colors or whatever have been caused by impacts. And those are just the ones you can see from here. And they must have been thousands of impacts thousands of them have been millions g they come from. Well, yeah, they're flying around in space and just kind of happened to collide with the moon earth are the other moons out there in the solar system. Jupiter's fifty and Marzieh's couple are they all pocketed this way to all the planets are well, the, the gaseous planet Jupiter, you know. And that's where it hits one of those kind of absorbed. Yeah, but, but what it tells you is this solar system when it was forming was very, very chaotic. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And it remains though it's a chaotic place out there. George might there have been a planet that was close again, between earth and Mars. The moon's out there and it blew up in all these pieces went flying..

"Just sounds like grit and want under like a cyber futurist techno livid libertarian of vocabulary. Yeah, everybody it. There is a lot of everything old is new again. And we have the data to prove it now. Right. And we used to make fun of a lot of that stuff. We used as you know, gritty David Stein, and everything. But maybe he actually was as good as he was despite not being physically imposing because he had some extra driver practice aptitude that was getting him to that point. So, yeah, I mean that's. Kind of a theme of of I guess my baseball writing in general, is just everything. Do is is old to some extent. And we don't realize it because baseball has been around for a hundred fifty years of professional sports. And so a lot of this stuff is sort of lost time, and there were things that I uncovered while work down, this book that we're really striking parallels to what's happening today and precursors to this movement. But for various reasons they just kinda remained in isolated pockets, and they didn't catch on because you had the baseball men who were very opposed to this, and you didn't have the front office that was sympathetic to these ideas. And you didn't have the technology in many cases, that makes it much easier to actually implement some of these practices, so I do go over branch Rickey, and the royals academy, and all of these things that I think, kind of augured where we were going, but the baseball baseball was just wasn't ready for for those ideas yet. And I think it's only in the past few years, that the sports really embraced it in her NIST. All right. Well with. Let me ask you this before we go. Is there something that, like got left out or some experience, you had researching this, 'cause this had to be just a totally different experience from your first book where your hands on one place? Now, this is much more work of journalism than a of, of science or expectation or a very application experimentation the way the first one was. Yeah, it was much harder to report this to figure out how to structure it because it's a really broad topic. The player development in baseball the past present and future..

"But, you know firsthand experience. And then, yes. Much to my dismay. I show up at Dr line baseball, the independent training facility in Seattle and not only do I have to strip down. And yet, all of these markers, these bulbs attached to my body, forty seven of these little plastic do hickeys stuck over my body so that I could then get on a mound and throw, and they could track all of my movements with fifteen cameras. And so all of my inadequacies were quantified to a degree of detail that I didn't really need in my life necessary. And meanwhile, all of these like pro players are like Kyle Zimmer standing around watching me strip down and throw from amount. Which I have not that great at doing I was a second basement in my own brief playing career. I was not known for my arm. So there is a, a lot of prostrating ourselves before actual athletes here and kind of getting our come up in sin was a humbling experience. But also an eye opening one because it really is kind of inspirational and, and you know. Interesting when you can try out all these new tools, and you get a sense of. Okay. This is why all of this stuff is happening now. And this is why players are transforming their careers because this technology was not available five years ago. And it really does make a difference. Yeah. That was one. I think the most, if so listener says podcast will recognize a lot of the names in the book. I mean Travis was on when he were big data baseball. We talked about some of the, the issues with wearables stuff Kyle boat. He's been on this podcast. Doug lad has been on this podcast Craig breslow and, and a bunch of the other. People who figure prominently in this in this narrative. Oh, I don't even there is like unified idea. But there's it's a series of vignettes really rather than just like one story, the way money balls, the story of the, the two thousand two, as but anyway, what I was gonna say, is what that chapter got us. I think it was my favorite part of the book was when you described your road to Damascus moments when, when Doug lad is teaching. You had a hit, and like this is one of the most fascinating things in baseball me. Right now is this moment when it just clicks for like, and I've, I've talked to, I can't even remember how many players who've made a big velocity? Leaper made a swing change, and like it all just comes together. And in the in the space of a day, sometimes sometimes within the space of a few pitches, they just figure it all out and all of a sudden, they're throwing harder. They're hitting the ball harder and this happened you and yes, I think you captured that feeling pretty well but it's just. I can't imagine having experienced that firsthand. Yeah, it was like suddenly acquiring superpowers or something, like not that I'm that great, all of a sudden, but I went to the same hitting coach who tutored Justin Turner. And, you know, hunter Pence more recently, and we have Turner talking about this in the book, how he just kind of changed his mind set and changed his mechanics and one day in batting practice. He just tried out the new style and suddenly, he was hitting bombs that he never hit before, and I had sort of had the same experience, like hitting has been my strong suit. If you can call it that as a player like in a relative sense, but once I worked with Doug, with this guy, who's had the sort of affect on other major league players. I could really see how it happens. And that has been the whole intoxicating part of this topic to me, and why I wanted to work on this book is that we've seen so many players go through this sort of transformation in for me, it was Richhill, I think who really opened my mind to the idea that this could be done because. Here's a thirty five year old player who's been bouncing around the big leagues and the miners, and indie ball and suddenly, he comes out of nowhere, and he's one of the.

"I was watching movie over the weekend, and you can just feel the base. So if that's how it's good to you. Go to Sonos dot com to learn more. You will know of my next guest from his work on the regular end. His second full length baseball book, which comes out today. Ben lindbergh. Congratulations. Thank you very much. It's my second co written full length baseball book. So I guess that adds up to one full baseball book, but I'll take it. We can hopefully call you a multiple bestselling author by the that'd be nice. So I've received a copy of your book in the mail as well as a list from your publishers publicists of topics that I could talk to you, and, or your co author Travis saw chick about. Seeing that list. I don't even know what I'm qualified. I'm one of the things that like do you want to do the James Lipton style interview? Do you wanna do like the Letterman interview as one thing that I've always loved is like when the late night hosts, and this is not going to translate to podcast medium like they take the album as the band is coming on stage like slam it down on the desk. Yeah I'm doing that right now. My office. So. Book is called the MVP machine. And let's see we could talk about why the moneyball era is over and what strategies the best players and teams in base teams in baseball are using now. So that's a good place to start except I'm going to start with the I, I have to say my favorite part of the book. I did not realize that you would be doing partial nudity. Failing for this book. You take your off at the drive on baseball headquarters. I did not realize that either what I said at threat this book. Yeah. I said in the book I mean I wanted to get part of the first person experience in the vote because this is a book all that player development and how players are getting better and the technologies and the training that they're using. And so I figured, well, I can write about what these players are going through. And I will, and I'll include their testimony. But I'd better experience some of this firsthand just to get some sense of what it's like and what the potential is not that I'm gonna come out of this as a big leaguer..

"Obviously, if the Anki is our Braves are going to sign kaikal right away. Maybe that's not as much of a concern. But it's been frustrating. How predictably frustrating, this is if that makes sense that we could see this coming from months away? Yeah, I think that's exactly right. The, the predictably frustrating. The fact that we knew exactly what was going to what was going to happen. Doesn't make it any less knowing. And I just think you're out of your out of excuses if you're going to sign one of these players and oh I'm looking at the list of contenders. Can you name a team that let's even assume that kaikal is nothing more than a three? Maybe a good number four starter in a playoff retainer. Where's the contender that couldn't use that? You know, where's the contender that couldn't use even shaky version of Craig kimbrel? Even if you're absolutely the most pessimistic, you can possibly, be almost every team has room under the luxury tax to go and get one of these players now. And if you don't sign them now that just gives them less of a chance to warm up and get up to speed and get full strength for the playoff, Ron. So, especially. Because if let's even take that at face value. It'll take kaikal a month to get up to full speed. That means you're adding him to the rotation in mid-july, which is the time you traditionally want to add a starting pitcher, anyway, how many pitchers will be available who are better than kaikal. And if they are then that means they will cost an exorbitant prospect hall. Whereas kaikal is basically just looking for a one year deal at this point. And the same thing goes for Kimberly. You mentioned with Tikal in the rotation where Craig kimbrel even if you're not signing to be closer, who knows if he would do that. But it's not like you're bumping your closers, you're taking the seventh guy inner bullpen out and moving every other pitcher down a notch that means you're comparing kimbrel to the seventh best pitcher in a bullpen even the Yankees could use kimbrel over the seventh guy in the bullpen. So I'm excited for them to sign just so we can stop making this argument over and over again. But the fact that's lasted so long has meant. We've had to. Well, if you're out there, listen you own and MLB team, you can. Zaken me to, to run your team, and we will win you. We will get you into the playoffs by doing obvious things correctly, that is that is our promise here to you at Crandon bomb and analytics firm, which I need to call. My lawyer get the, the paper startup. So we can actually found this company. I guess it's refreshing that in an era where we're concerned that front offices have become so smart. And what can we as public analysts ad saying sign one of the best closers in baseball history is still, you know, worthy to count as vice his, his great, great learning hath made him mad. That's so this, I think will be an interesting book, end with by discussion later on with Ben about his book about all the ways you know, all the really impressive ways in which majorly front offices, have gotten smarter at not only for an offices pliers and, and private coaches like there's so much intelligence in the game out there. And there's just no appetite to go inside a recent Cy Young winner. It's a is it surprising is telling what, what would you choose? I don't know. I almost think it's put me in a strange position because entering the offseason, I was thinking, I'm not quite sure about Keiko's future. He's not the same pitcher he was when he won the Cy Young in two thousand fifteen he seems more like a three or four back end guy. He is not the best pitcher in baseball, but he doesn't have to be for teens to sign him. So I've almost become more defensive of his abilities in kimbrel. Same thing we were all concerned about his shaky postseason run, but he's still one of the best pitchers one of the best closers in baseball history. And he's not old. He can still throw the ball pretty hard a he's hard to hit..

"Some of the money, Bruce was never going to be in their long-term plants. Anyway, you're remember when they were what thirteen and two and people during people were wondering if they keep the supper, they going to continue with their plans to reload, and definitely, they are now twenty five in thirty eight they're in last place in the American League West, and I think it's pretty clear that they're hot start will not interfere with any long term plans that might have had. No, I we I think we call that one pretty correctly at the time, we had Meg on the show and she said, well, let's talk about this now before before it goes away. And it did pretty rapidly. So, yeah, this is, is certainly a big name. But at this point, this is your member. Jason Jami guy signed every off season by one team in and moved around traded every July, Jim Thome, e the same thing for a couple of years is maybe not that quality of, of. Career, but I think a similar role that you would expect Jay Bruce, ply. I mean it's his third time in the last four seasons that he's moved mid season. So as pretty impressive pattern, he's collecting he's collecting a lot. You see in the world man, you know, there's, there's something to be said for that. I think, you know, one thing that I always found interesting about the life cycle of a professional athlete is those those athletes who may be Jay Bruce, as at this guy because he's been traded so many times, but there is an opportunity like experience a lot of different things. If you're just sort of bouncing around at the end of your career, you know, like, if you're the, the aging soccer player goes and plays in China for a year and then comes to MLS and goes to the Middle East or something like that. I think there's something attractive about that. If you're wired that way. Apply for a personality. So Philadelphia as far afield as China in the Middle East, you, you could make that argument. It's it's that far field for somebody. All right. Let's move onto you want to talk about the Texas Rangers. I want to talk a little bit about the Colorado Rockies easer teams that have sort of moved into they moved from also ran status to slightly less also ran like you could see them maybe not closing down the teams. They're chasing because the dodgers and Astros have been so good. But there they're edging their way back in their respective wildcard races. Yeah. And I think these teams have a lot of similarities in my mind in terms of how they're constructed. They are pretty much led by their offense in an offensively oriented ballpark, but they're starting pitching outside the top two has been abysmal for both teams in Colorado, you have her mom Marquez who's built on his hot run at the end of last season. John gray has pretty much bounced back from last year, but beyond them the. The Rockies rotation has taken giant all freely went from went from fourth and Cy Young voting to era of seven. How did this happen? Yeah. He was demoted. And then in Texas, you have kind of similar orientation. My good to say the name say the name. Lance lynn. Yes. I know this is funny because Michael does not necessarily believe in fep he is more of Iraq. He is more of an era guy. But Lance Lynn his era, is four point five, which is not great. His fifth is three point one seven. And if you look at fan, graphs pitching war, which is based on fifth. Lance Lynn is the sixth most valuable pitcher in baseball this year sandwiched between Marquez and hinge in Rio. So Lance Lynn has been incredible Mike minor has been quietly. One of the better pitchers in baseball for a year and a half now. But also, they have nobody beyond those two, either I can't really see Texas, especially keeping this up, Joey Gallo is out for a bit now after injuring, I think, is oblique over the weekend, which is a bummer because he's been a terror this season. So I can definitely see Texas falling out as soon as we talk about them. But right now, they're in the second wildcard spot, and that's a pretty impressive starts talking about them while they're there. Exactly a team that I think nobody really assumed would compete especially in that division..

"Hello, and welcome to the ringer MLB show. My name is Michael Bowman. I'm a staff writer at the ringer. The MLB draft is ongoing. So please, check out Zack story on new White Sox. First baseman, Andrew von and mine on new Orioles catcher, Adly ruckman. I'm going to talk about the draft with Eric long, and Haganah fan, graphs later on in the show, also ongoing dense new book Travis saw chick, the MVP machine comes out today. There's an excerpt of the book on the site. If you want to try before you buy, although I would encourage you to go and patronize your nearest bookseller to acquire a copy soon as possible. Ben and I are going to discuss the book later on the show as well. Also, I want to get out in front of this during that segment. I said, I'd stopped saying, you know, as verbal pause. And then I said, you know, at least twice between when I said that and the end of the podcast. So I want to apologize for my hubris. But before we get to all of that we've got to check in with the actual goings on a major league baseball. So let's do that. Let's do the news with Zach cram. Later on the show. We're gonna talk about how players come to enter the professional ranks with Eric logging, Haganah fan graphs, and we're going to talk about how they get shaped into competitive big leaguers with Ben Limburg. But first, let's just talk about the state of major league baseball as it is. And for that purpose, I am pleased to be joined as always buys at Graham Zack. Hello, let's talk about it. I mean, there's news. There's a trade, so let's start with Jay, Bruce traded from the Seattle Mariners to the Philadelphia Phillies for minor leaguer. Jake shiner, and about eighteen million or eighteen million dollars I should say which covers all, but about three million dollars of the year and a half left on BRUCE'S contract, whatever I guess, that's like, that's a rough a rough summation of the thing we're leading off the show with. But this is this is just sort of moving pieces around. Yeah. And I think the more important element. It has is that it symbolizes the start of trade season which we? We usually say, oh, front offices are concerned about the draft. And then after the draft, they can shift their focus and actually think about this season and making improvements or selling a depending on their situation. So the fact that the brewers kicked trade came basically, just before the draft happened, just resonated, even more clearly in my mind with this being the turning point now we can start thinking about all right? Where might Madison Bumgarner. Go is Marcus Stroman going to be traded, and so on, because there are presumably more impactful names in players who will be traded than shapers. Yeah. And from the Phillies perspective. This is this, this trade, it comes to sort of fill in need, because Phillies do need help in the outfield. This is not the most important side effect of Dubreuil Harare's leave leave after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and presumably he'll be suspended at some. Point and Andrew mccutchen injured himself on Monday night after the trade went through so they have a hole in center field. But now more playing time in the corners, which I imagine will be where Bruce fits in Roseau kind of a right handed heavy lineup. You know, real Nudo, and Michael, Franco, and Reese, Hoskins provide a lot of pot from that side and Bryce Harper is sort of stands alone as a lefty. So insofar as BRUCE'S useful that is that is where he's probably gonna fit in shiner is not intending. No disrespect to him, not somebody Phillies are gonna really miss three million dollars. In something bid, they are perfectly capable of paying for a fourth outfielder slash backup, first baseman and will not impact their ability to go out and get a pitcher, which I, which I expect them to do between now and the trade deadline as far as the Mariners go, I guess this just, you know. They got a minor leager. They got off the. Yeah..
