Fresh update on "bennett" discussed on Give It Some Thought with Dr Harold Bennett

"Healthy then I think that there's probably a lot of things that Josh McDaniels would love to do with that offense and love to try and I think Belichick at another level. Would in a way we'd love to prove that he can win by running a system completely different than the one that was there when Tom Brady got there. Although some would say that if he wants to win With it without Brady there maybe you do with the same system, and that proves that it's more the system than Brady. I don't know that the thing between Brady and Belichick is his stick it to the other guy. Personal is Some want to believe that it is Maybe this But I think the thing with Cam is this Is that the wear and tear that he's out of his body? The problem with Cam Newton is there's no way to manage that without mitigating what Cam Newton is at his peak. Cam Newton is not Cam Newton. If you're having him drop back 35 times and dink and dunk in the short passing game. Cam Newton's Cam Newton if you haven't thrown the ball 28 times and running the ball 13 times on designed runs that often inflict a lot of punishment. So that's the catch 22 with Cam and why There's a decent chance of Jarod's did it may still wind up being the guy. I think they liked your instead. Um I like Jared Stadium. But Cam's an M v p at his peak. I don't think I m v P camps not walking through the door. I just think there's too much a too much has happened to him physically since that year. And as good a scam has looked at times that year has been a complete out liar just in terms of the ceiling level of productivity from Cam Newton. So you know, he's never had a second year like most M V P s have multiple years like that in their careers. And then they're just happens to be one where there the obvious or they're the leading M V P candidate. Cam's been a good quarterback. He was great that year, he has not had a ton of great seasons. You know Other M V P s. Perennial, You know, guys that are in that mixer. You know Brady's great every year, Peyton Manning was great every year. Aaron Rodgers. By and large, he is very good to great every year. But I'm looking at the A F C u know it is stealing. What is Cam? You know this ceiling? Is he like maybe the six best quarterback in the A F. C. Put Jackson put Roethlisberger I put Watson Put the homes all ahead of him. That's five. Right. That's four right there. So that puts him in five. Let's get one more in before the top of the hour. Let's talk to Len in Baltimore. Len, you're up on CBS Sports radio Fire away. How you doing Good, too. I just wanted to give you a few names for those Redskins and hang up in here. But you have to say sure, I like the Washington militia. This. Next one has some kind of like museums. The relic. Um Justice. And my favorite the Why? Washington Watch. Then we'll hang up, miss. Which got okay. Thanks. I appreciate the phone call. I don't think they're going to be the Washington wasps, and I don't think they're gonna be the Washington relics. Although there were some teams that Dan Snyder that like there were some signings that Dan Snyder made Back in the day like I think of the years when he was signing Dion Sanders and Bruce Smith well after their primes. Relics would have been a good name for those teams. Why not just call in the Washington fossils? My take on this and we'll ask Grandpa. Listen about this in the next segment, he he's on the air up in D. C on one of 67 A fan, and he's going to work little baseball, but I'm going to mix in a little Washington talk with him. My hunch is they're going to go with with something. Something fairly neutral. But perhaps patriotic. You know? I don't know. It seems like the topics where teams air changing their names. They're going to want to change something that isn't going to require them to possibly change it again in 25 or 30 years. Washington Relics. All right. I said earlier. I wasn't going to turn this show into a name the Redskins contest. Now, if you want to make them funny names, Okay, that's cool..

Esther Terry Oral History Interview

"Her role in the planning and participating in the 1960. Lunch counter shouldn't protest in Greensboro, North Carolina when she was a student at Bennett College. She very reserved US president of Bennett College Thie interviews conducted by Joseph Martini, a of the Southern oral history program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I know. I think I think I know that your parents drove you to the college here in the fall of 57. Yes, they did. But what did you discover here and driving in at college? He was a big day for me. But for the whole community came from someplace, Justin, but I came Being supported by the whole community. They prayed for me a church. They gave me a few pennies here and there, I said, we didn't have a lot of money and had a little scholarship. I had taken the there and so I had done well enough to have in grandiose thousands money. And I was going to work a little bit. But there there was. There was always that. Let me give you a few pins. I came being born as a good wishes of the community. And off. We came to college. I'd never been to college before. I'd never been to greens for before, and I arrived here to have cells just swallowed up my parents and 1,000,000 all of us that a lot of parents and a lot of students. All being deposited by parents and was a lonely feeling when they said goodbye and left this fair, lonely about some people who you know, in short order, become persons who are important to you here on the campus back up. I met when I as my parents were getting me situated in my room, there was a woman who was bringing her daughter. There was a girl Roscoe Smith being deposited from West Virginia and her mom met my mom and they talked And vases, mother told my mom how they talked, and just only so much, And so the time I'll never know. But here's what got established in that that little while rises. Mother had other Children in college at the same time, and so she immediately knew. She told Razzle immediately. She wouldn't be coming home rods that his rise wouldn't be coming home. There was gonna be money to bring rising home except at Christmas time and in the summertime, my mom Told Mrs Smith that we lived a couple of hours up the road and they would be driving back to see me often and they become I could come home quite often. I could come home for Thanksgiving. I could come home with him, you know and advised could come home with me anytime. So Mrs Smith and Mrs Alexander's soda bonded that day, and they exchange Children. My mom became surrogate buys his mom and Guys. This mom became sort of my mom although it would take a long time before I got to West Virginia to me rises. Mother rise went home with me that very, very first break that we had, and she went home with me through all four years. My very best friend To this day this Ross and Smith. She is actually living in Greensboro. And so it's she retired here some 10 years ago from New York, where she had been working in social work, so she came back. She retired to green throughout that they want to come back to greens for Bennett have anything to do with it, But she came to things girl and then was when I took the job here. I was delighted she's here. So we are where we met. She was. I think I understand. She was really kind of a different part of casks in classrooms. Yes, she said. Sociology and political science. I was English. Tell me Aboutthe big name of student theater student fifties. Oh, my goodness. It was wonderful. It was when my English professor was Hoback, Jerry. Well, I had several, but Dr Jarret was me who taught me literature. Dr. Jared, what a wonderful man. What a brilliant man. All of all of my faculty where Dr Jarod was hard. He was tough. He exacted absolute perfection and and we were arrogant enough to think we could give it to him. You know that He really had us just charmed into thinking that we could write anything we could articulate in and we could debate anybody. But he was just a wonderful teacher and And he empowered us big deal but no nonsense. So I was very much engaged with him. He would walk on campus and say this, Alexander I I'm going to pick up a ball. What about the book? And I'd say literary history of the and he'd say Yes. You know, I mean, those little games. You know, Haywood, he was set to show off about health area that he wass and we reveled in it. He lost. It was a very handsome man and smoked a

Fresh update on "bennett" discussed on Give It Some Thought with Dr Harold Bennett

"The Action from Utah continues as Christine sink Sinclair in the Portland thorns Look for three points as they take on the Washington spirit. In the end of US L Challenge Cup streamed live on CBS all access and available on CBS Sports Network tomorrow at seven Eastern For Pacific N. W S L Challenge Cup, getting some publicity's from J. J. Watt earlier today whose wife Kalia plays for the Chicago team, so that that that's like that if you're that lead if you gotta NFL player with Five million Twitter followers tweeting out your gear. Um so that'll be. Ah, That's tonight. Ah, 10 o'clock eastern seven Pacific on CBS Sports Network. Let's see eight by 5 to 1 to four CBS. There were before we get to the phones. The latest in baseball is from a cove it's standpoint. Is. There were four teams today that announced that they had they had two positive tests each. Don't say who didn't say which players. The teams were the The White Sox. The nationals, the Pirates and the Cardinals have had positive tests. Again. As I outlined earlier. I think this is just this is going to be part of the process. This is not March 11th were Rudy Gobert test positive and the entire N BA shuts down. Who we knew very little about the virus back then. We were at the very front of the curve, flattening part of it. Some would argue that we've put ourselves back into a spot where we're tryingto re flatten the curve in certain parts of the country, including where I am in Texas. But But we know a lot more now about who the virus effects may be some ways to mitigate the effects on people that are feeling symptomatic. We know that most people that fall into the age group that these players Aaron are going to be more of them are going to be a symptomatic than symptomatic. In short, the virus has become something To manage as opposed to this gigantic warrior holding a weapon ready to chop your head off, which is what it felt like back in March. I mean, it's still a serious thing. I don't want to take it lightly, and I know for certain people out there. Whether it's because of age or underlying health issues. It's a much bigger deal than it is for some, so I'm not trying to minimize it. I'm just trying to. I'm trying to express how sports is viewing it right now. As a major issue to manage as opposed to something that is going to turn the lights off all together, it could still turn the lights off altogether. I just think it's going to take a lot for these leagues to shut down. You know they're expanding the rosters. They're taking every health precaution available. The big tell is that none of them are being specific about what exactly would shut down the league. That to me is the one way that you can tell that it's going to take a lot to shut down a league. Or maybe shut down a team and by the way they would shut down a team and just remove them before they shut down the sport. If if an outbreak is isolated to that team. They would shut down that team that put it this way. If there's an outbreak on one team that's not going to shut down this sport. Now there's an outbreak on six teams. That might shut down this sport because then all of a sudden this season just becomes a bit of a joke. Some would argue even removing one team makes it a bit of a joke, because when we dealt with the team getting removed altogether from a post season before Or even from during the regular season. Or we a team having to take a week off in the middle of the season because of an outbreak on a team. I'm guessing these are all contingencies that they've talked about behind the scenes. I'm just saying that in order to shut the sport down, which would mean turning the lights off on the TV money. It's gonna have to be a major major multi team outbreak. My opinion. And again the reason I feel that is the case is because they've been very non specific on what exactly would shut down the league. They've almost treated it like the politician used to describe pornography back in the day. You know, I don't know how to describe it, but I know it when I see it. What would it take to shut down league? I don't know exactly what it would take, but we'll know it when we see it, okay? Hey, look, I'm in the sports business. I'm often and being as aggressive as possible. While being reasonable with the overall danger of this thing. Fact of the matter is the death rate continues to go way way down. That's a good sign. Cases keep going up. That's bad that needs to go away. But there's obviously not a vaccine coming anytime soon. Right eight by 5 to 12 For CBS, If you if you want to get in, let's go to the phones and talk to my guy. Dave, who's in Buffalo, Dave, you're up. How you doing, my man. Johnny, how you doing tonight? I'm well. Yeah, I just want to jump in and kind of reacted with Jason Cole was saying there about Cam Newton. I looked at him as the guy that you know, I think the Patriots brought him in, obviously for competition for stadium. But I mean, at the end of the day, I mean, you know his body. I mean, with all the running and scrambling he's done between his time at Auburn and his time with the Panthers. I mean to me, that's just not the normal wear and tear that a quarterback has. On his body, and I feel like, you know a Jason Cole brought up a good point about him, You know, being a precision bathroom. You look at that offense do with New England the ways and run obviously got it going to be modified after Brady left. To me. It just feels like it's it's more of, like, all right, well, bring him in. We'll see what he has left. But to me like you look at his personality versus Bellatrix. They're two totally different guys. I think Bella checked at the end of the day. Price feels like Probably not anything great this year, so why not take a chance at it? But anybody? I heard somebody say this week that they could be, you know, Ah team to be reckoned with. I just don't see it. I think it's a team that may be the wild card at best. Um, So I'm interested to hear what you say about that man and our big weekend golf man, Bryson to Shambo. I mean, this guy I feel like he's reinventing the game. I mean, he's just he's just letting rip with the driver on every hole and he puts well, man, it feels like a new era with the way he's planning all the way to put on and is a totally different game. He's playing so You have a good night, but I'll talk to you soon. Thanks, Dave. I always appreciate Thie appreciate the call. You know Cam Newton and we have Jason Cole on in the previous segment. Jason's covered the NFL for a number of years. And his take. Wass lets a mildly surprising you think there's there's a chance. The Cam Newton just doesn't make it through training camp with the Patriots, and he didn't really say because of Because of injury necessarily just because the Patriots may look at what Cam is now and think that Jared System in their system that they're used to running gives them a legitimately better chance to win that Cam Newton. I would find that surprising. If Cam is healthy..

"We're trying to do and I think if we communicated that way then not to put a band aid over something or to make it sound pretty, but that is the truth how I see it. I everybody is Thomas Week, where you Kinda. Have our little pro tip in La does things we respectfully disagree on certain things, but the same time we still love each other. I think some protests for this episode. The protests for me I think would be to. Really reimagining yourself I think as individuals don't try to reinvent ourselves, because we self is that you are constantly putting on another facade. To fulfill that moment, but re imagining yourself reimagining some things around you, it allows you to grow a lot more and go farther because. Cells and loving ourselves as something allowed us is hard for us due to really love ourself because we look in the mirror, and we come to ourselves, and we see ourselves in that mirror, and we look at ourselves, and we don't really like everything about ourselves, but at the same time this is who we are, and so loving ourselves important, and I think in these moments in the pandemic. I those one thing that we really figured out. It's like it's okay for Pele to. Do have a moment by herself to love herself. Okay for me is okay for us to love ourselves and love our families, too so loving yourself feel like is important so reimagining what love feels like not reinventing it, because and reimagining love, it allows you to really put dig deep into the psyche of yourself in the psyche of your past traumas to really changed his experiences for the future and I think we look at America's a whole reimagining the ideas reform ation reform as a lot of the conversation. Is that are are happening around us and. Not only in the structural away, but also in a personal way in the flesh way also in a spiritual way. Yeah I like a reimagining, because you don't want to reinvent the wheel, you're going to rematch. What's new in what can come? But with that being said is that I feel that we live for the future, so we're constantly doing what we can now so that it'll affect our future in our. Our changes for what we want later you know what will come later and I think during this pandemic. Is that reimagined like today? Don't wait for tomorrow or for your month you know and love what you have now because we keep striving looking in searching in hunting for something better for something greater for something more, but that's never now. We always have to put that time in between it and we're. We're like well maybe six months all have this degree. Maybe in a year I'll have this house maybe then, but it's like, but why can't you just love and be in the moment of what you have right now and I think if you take the time in appreciate everything that you have at this moment the roof over your head a person in your life. You know your job at the moment. Moment everything might not be exactly what you want. And maybe you do WanNa get to the next level the next step, but don't forget where you have a because right now is still great right now is still special right now is all your hard work and everything that you put forward to get to the moment now and everything will come, but being the now to get to the future where she. Does my wife people, tours? And that's it. So, this is our second to last episode of the season next finale episode of season one. We're doing best of show playing clips and talking about our favorite moments from this past season, and it's kind of sad now that we're at the end, but please don't the next one.

Fresh update on "bennett" discussed on Give It Some Thought with Dr Harold Bennett

"On CBS Sports Radio Jason the owners chose this week to lop off weeks, one in four of the pre season the players then I won't say countered because this is really just them voting internally within their constituency, but they don't want to play any preseason games. What do you think, ultimately happens with the pre season this year? I don't think your family of it, I think you'll see scrimmages Intersport scrimmages. Maybe some kind of control situation. Because I don't like I don't think you're gonna have to be able to have the incense dance. Anyway, most of these five days, maybe a few of them were you know, in states where He uncovered is not as high but You know, California, Nevada, Arizona. Both Texas teams Florida's disaster right now, you're certainly this watch and majors. They don't want for any more. That's right. Pretty much all the Eastern feed war teams. So I I just think It's gonna be really hard for anybody to try and play these games. Playing with fans. I think that ultimately people are just going to say, Look. At best. You're gonna get a scrimmage. We're a team. You know some team that is nearby commuter bus in or flying like Baltimore busting up to Washington played, you know they're playing their squad came You know, you're gonna get something like that on the stage in the afternoon. You know, 11 o'clock, three o'clock or something with that. You know, make sure that everybody's in safe conditions that can't be and try and get some kind of action, But I think that that is even a stretch. I think there's a very possibly don't even have that. Of that teams are just basically beaten upon themselves. During all the training camp, and coaches hate that they just really hate. How the repetition of practicing and start their own team. All time. You don't say anything. Maybe you're too much anger within the team. All those things they hate about too many. Too many scrimmages within your roster. But I don't think they're going to have much choice about those suspicious that want to stay healthy going season. Yeah, well, and that's why I was going to ask you, Jason, because those joint practices especially for the frontline guys. Seemed to have up until obviously this offseason, which is like nothing we've seen. But for the last couple off seasons, they seem to have replaced what the preseason games used to be. For the top of depth chart. Guys they would practise against these other teams, and then they just wouldn't play in the preseason, But now there's no joint practices. And now they're it's It's looking like they're going to be no preseason games. Let's pretend that that's what the case is. Even with just a scrimmage or two. What do you think That effect is going to be? In week on what week one of the NFL season is going to look like quality for both going to be going to be bad for the first Go to the four weeks, right? I mean, but this has been Symptomatic of how the game has been for probably the last 8 to 10 years since Teams went to so much reduced hitting, especially under most kind. Collective bargaining agreement. Not this one. I shouldn't say that. But the one that was trying to 1011 that reduced offseason practices and limited two a days during training camp. All that stuff that happened 10 years ago, right? Hold that lead to poor Porter and poorer tackling early in the season because of the timing just wasn't right guys hadn't hit. And that usually takes care of itself. Game three game for Game five. Is one. I think things I can always get to be sharper. You know, You see the occasional game in the first week or two where execution is pretty sharp, but they're heading is still not sharp and the tackling is still sharp. And that's the biggest flaw and that's what people you hear. People complain about all the time. Now, sometimes even timing and you get, you know he's ugly. 10 to 7 or 17 13 games early in the season. Everybody starts to sell football. Terrible. How will we ever watched the stuff, blah, blah, blah. And for that for 10 years basically Yeah, we get over by weeks, three or four. Then people are still in the American football. Yeah. Jason Cole joining me on CBS sports radio. I think one of the things that's going to be very interesting to see Jason without a riel. Pre season or maybe a shortened training camp. Whatever is all these new quarterbacks adapting to their environments, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and local Bridgewater and when I want to ask you about Cam Newton, obviously, since the last time you and I spoke Cam assigned With the New England Patriots. What are your What? Your expectation. If Cam is healthy, if he's not healthy, even it's obviously not gonna work. But let's pretend that he's healthy for a second. What are the expectations for a healthy Cam Newton with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels. I have. I have absolutely no idea what to expect of this decidedly They haven't worked in the system a while, right? He hasn't practiced. You certainly practice. That's right. Close. Were there. Weapons were bad last year, right? Yes. If they were how they got markedly better. Not very much right? They drafted a few guys. But they haven't gone out just turned up to get like three or four guys, you say Oh, This guy's a game changer, right? So no cameras, cameras by far the most talented offensive weapons that they have So.

"Wake Up. WAKE UP A. Wake Up, wake up A. I. Say what Got Wake Up. You're listening to two mouthpiece Michael Bennett and Pele Bennett. It's been four months since we have heard of first case. Of Kobe, and sense of pandemic has spread, and we've been on lockdown in our homes, and our cities in our communities away from our family and friends, and now we're four months out as July. And now we're contemplating and thinking about what has changed in our society culturally and also. What hasn't you know what? Those, for like there, such a disconnect between reality and fantasy and I think like people feel like conspiracy is like all these things going on. I want so you don't know what is the virus real, or is it fake and all you know you see people dying you like viruses real, but then you see other people who aren't wearing masks, because they think is not real, so it's like it's a hard thing, and I think that's the thing that we're not really paying attention to American. Is How much empathy we have to have for other fellow human beings by wearing a mash, and doing all the proper things that you see in other countries and I think in America I'm not sure everybody takes a series of some of these other countries where you know I think in the beginning I even was. Not taking it ask your sale more like oh stay healthy. Wash your hands and have a positive spirit, but now after four months I'm like no, like you really have to go out of your way to take proper measurements of how you're interacting with people what you're doing, but but going out of your way where you're seeing someone walking towards you now you're like dodging person like you're really doing stuff that you normally wouldn't do every day, and then you're also still stocking up on food and stocking up. Up on your toilet trees in the beginning I was like a half enough for what you need, but because it's so unknown, the panic on everyone I think is still existing the s so crazy because like. If you rewind in October if somebody sneezed, you say, bless you if they coffee like, are you okay, but now it's like one of those things motherfucker cough or sneeze you looking for the tape and be like we need to put this. In segregation by herself. He is sick or she's sick. It's so crazy because you don't owe, AM I. Not affected so I just feel like in America. We we open up things like it's hard for this country to a capitalist society not to be open. You know what I'm saying, so it's like they're weighing humanity versus the capitalistic, Mesa. De! Cities, in the states are opening knowing that there's an opportunity and more chances of people actually in the virus, but the greed and a need to have these material things need to be I. The need to have those is actually feel like sitting us backwards as American society, as American culture, and you add in the riots, you add in protests you add it enjoys floyd. You have a cocktail. There's ready just to explode because there's so many different variations of people's paying happen once and I think the government. needs to do a better job of controlling are not since of controlling, but really giving people to true on his narrative is like. If we don't have that shoot, narrative, people don't trust, and unfortunately we dylan what the president five that people just don't trust. They don't trust them, so people aren't really like leaving. What's happening or some people are just like this disconnect between the powers-that-be in the governing body actual people that the government actually governs. Yeah, let's say one thing out of these four months that I've really noticed. That is really different amongst everyone at. Within Within governments within city states, countries is value I. Feel like that word value you know. Everybody has their own term on how they value something and like how you value your food. How do you value each other? You know humans your family. Had you value your government, you know. How do you value your mayors? Different things because of all of these bumps in our rose as we go through these four months I feel like the word value keeps coming up and everyone has their own definition and terminology on what how do you value something? How do we value this life like that? Unfortunately, it even has come to that. You know where people are like. Oh, it'll be have that separation. Than how do we value each other and help? That's different. Different how treating each other? How people are you know? Bullying and people are targeting people that had it you know, and then it goes into race people bullying people who are from China in the beginning this year and I think that we keep putting our own value on people on things on issues, and that is if keeping separated also L. knows lucky animalistic the way that we're like how people react in these times a survival. People go into this mode. I must survive in their survival is more important than the next person I think there's a bit of selfishness. I think we live. We breathe a culture of selfishness when we look at the amount of things that are happening around us. We look at Instagram facebook twitter, all these different types of platforms as we build up these identities for ourselves to. Be disconnected from society and have our opinions, but no onto. Ours is the most important, and it doesn't matter what other people think. I think in this situation. We're suffering from now because we're suffering from this idea that I just WanNa. Live my life Yolo Yolo. So, it's like when you think about that. It's like that's a terrible mindset to have when you think about the older generation of people who have lived a whole life, but for some reason we want to be in the pool. We want to be in the club. We want to be in everything that doesn't really matter when it comes to the idea of being into life and I think when we look at our society now. We just suffering from so many. Heart shirts because of those ideologies and is hard for us to move four when we think about the future of America because there's such a broken down connection between the haves, and the have not in this world, but that does take it back into what you said.

Fresh update on "bennett" discussed on Give It Some Thought with Dr Harold Bennett

"It's already below what they probably forecasted before the year started. Think about it when the year started. Was anybody talking about a pandemic? No. You probably have players thinking I can't wait to hit free agency after this year, and the cap goes up another 10 or 12 million, like it does every year. That's this has been probably the biggest wake up call, I think for people in sports that cover sports I brought this up for a long time, and we get people that would laugh at me about it. But I would bring up the question. What about the year where the salary cap inevitably goes down for whatever reason, because you can't go up forever. I would bring it up with football lot because football had all those questions about concussions and a lot of things that were threatening The overall health of the sport. I said, What if some year revenue goes down because of this because enough people feel guilty watching football. Made laugh. They go the caps. Never. It's always going to go up. Well, I don't think it would go down for a pandemic. But what we found out there are reasons why the cat can go down and it's going to go down in football and it's going to go down in basketball and baseball free agency is going to be a disaster this offseason for guys who are entering free agency. So the big answer your questions him. Is it any revenue that gets generated? The players benefit from because if that's less money that the cap is going to be hit by in the cap will take a hit. Let's go to Arizona and talk to Josh. Josh, you are up on CBS Sports radio Fire away. Everybody. How you doing? Hope you have been a great one. I want to give I loved anybody given going through a hard time right now we are gonna get through it. Just get through it. Keep your head up. Yep. I'm from originally from Cleveland, Ohio. So like with the Indians That name. I know the history of it, and I know the meaning behind it and the meaning behind the logo. And it was actually for one of the player that they had. It was drawn for hair I made for him. But as far as the risk and go, I'm I'm half native. I've never found offense to it. But I understand why they would want to change the name get it, especially with what's going on now. And they were from a mile. I know Dwight, Afghans tweeted out. That he had a name in mind. And I actually really like it wouldn't be like the Washington red tails. Well, I guess for for airplanes. You know that it was the STD element. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah. They were called the red tails. And that would that I thought that was pretty cool. Like Oh, I like that name. And I know the island will charter is also said that they would give the Washington the Washington General Night. Yeah. Although I don't know if you want to be Michelle. I don't know if you want to name your team after the Washington generals, they're records. Not very good. I'm not I'm a brown bears all recognize your team's record is not so good in Reald games like as opposed to the Globetrotters in the General's where it's basketball, but it includes buckets of confetti and water being poured on people. I know the feel and hoping for the day. Yeah, I brown at least I got my bug eyes. But there you go. There you go. Yeah, and hopefully we get some college football. Josh, I appreciate the phone call. We're up against it. Yeah. Red tails is a good idea, you know? Like I said, I'm prefacing this for you guys that are calling in with Redskin phone calls I don't have. I don't have a strong emotional tide of the team. So I don't have a super strong emotional tie to wanting to keep the name Although everybody's called in tonight, says No. We get it. Why the name Redskins needs to go and so I'm cool with it going. As far as you know, suggestions for names. I think red tails that's pretty cool. No, I don't live in the area. So it my guess is it's going to be something that embodies the area in some way. That is, you know, somewhat regional in nature that fans of the Redskins the longtime Redskins soon to be some other name. Oh, yeah. You know what? I still feel a real attachment to this team. I wonder if something to where they're going to be able to easily keep the color scheme because that Burgundy You're that color scheme is is, you know as bad as the team has been over the last several years, it's an iconic color scheme. You do definitely associated with that team. Fine. Jason Cole. Is going to join me in the next segment.

"Exploration is dangerous work. There are unknowns challenging landscapes severe weather to contend with, and that's just the tip of the iceberg at extreme locations or just factual, non metaphorical icebergs and everything gets much more difficult. Early. Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic circles near the north and South Poles were some of the most incredible undertakings in history. Of course there were plenty of failures, but every time someone tried. It helps the people who came after. Learn a little bit more. By the early nineteen hundreds several different parties from many different places had succeeded in exploring the frigid areas and returning to tell the tale. Eight! Adele Tuck was born not too far from this brutal cold, She I opened her eyes in eighteen ninety in Alaska, not far from the city of nome, which is on the West Central Coast at one time. Alaska was known to Americans as seward's folly because Secretary of State William, seward purchased the land from Russia for seven million dollars in eighteen, sixty seven. People thought it was a terrible mistake and a waste of money, but when golden were discovered, there seward was like who's laughing now y'all seward's folly more like seward's stroke of genius that you all were super wrong about L. K. man. We get it. Anyway Alaska would still not even become an official US territory until Ada was a teenager, she was initiate one of the indigenous groups of people native to land. But growing up, she never learned the survival ways and traditions of her tribe. She was raised by missionaries people who moved to the area to set up a school in order to convert people to their religion. It's a circumstance that happened to many native Americans and as a result, many traditions were lost for generations some forever. In school eight learned to read and write English read the Bible and learned cooking and other domestic skills, the reading and writing served her well, but as you might have guessed in a story about exploration, these domestic skills would not go near as far in helping her as more traditional skills like hunting, tracking and survival might have. As a young adult! Sixteen! She married a man named Jack Black. Jiang. Yep. You heard that, right? Jack Black Jack. No. He was not a cartoon outlaw, nor was he a professional poker player. He was a dog musher hauling freight across Alaska on a sled pulled by dogs. Together! They had three kids. Sadly, only one survived a boy named Bennett. But one day, Jack Blackjack left the family high and dry. Up and left her in the middle of nowhere which in Frigid Alaska can be a pretty serious predicament. Though he was not the greatest of guys she did keep his greatest of names and earned her future fame as Ada blackjack. When Jack blackjack deserted her. She was forty miles from their home in known, and she and Ben Walked the entire way back in the bitter Alaskan cold to make matters worse than it was very sick with burke. And infection of the lungs, so ada quite a small woman carried the boy much of the way.

Brit Bennett: The Vanishing Half

"And Silver Bland, and this is bookworm. My guest today Brit Bennett is the talk of the literary world her book. The vanishing half made its debut at number one on the New York Times. Bestseller list now like me. You may not think much of bestseller was but my big surprise when I picked it up is that it's a wonderful book? It's very enjoyable to read, and it's only Brit. Bennett's second book won't was the originating idea for the vanishing half. Well thanks for having me The book actually began a conversation I had with my mother where she was telling me about this town. She remembered hearing about from her childhood, growing up in rural Louisiana and it was a town. Where was a community of light skinned black people that continued to intermarry within that community in hopes that their children would progressively lighter from generation to generation, so it really struck me as I'm very strange, disturbing idea, also place, and of course as a novelist that immediately makes you think. Oh, this is the setting for a novel. We? Get a very. Dramatic sense of that sending early in the book and I'm going to ask Brooke Bennett to read. The section that describes the town. It has a great name. The name of the town is Mallard and it's named after a duck. Go It was a strange town. Mallard named after the ring necked ducks, living in the rice fields and marshes, a town that like any other was more idea than place. The idea arrived to Alphonse to soar in eighteen, forty eight, as he stood in the sugar cane fields. He'd inherited from the father who'd once owned him. The father now dead, the now freed son wished to build something on those acres of land that would last for centuries to come. A town for men like him who never be accepted as white, but refused to be treated like Negroes a third-place his mother rest. Her soul had hated his lightness when he was a boy, she'd shopped him under the sun, begging him to darken. Maybe that's what made him I dream of the town. Lightness like anything inherited at great cost was lonely gift. He'd married him lotto even lighter than himself. She was pregnant with their first child, and he imagined children's Children's children lighter still like a cup of coffee steadily done rooted with cream, a more perfect Negro, each generation lighter than the one before. Soon others came. Soon idea in place became inseparable in Mallard carried throughout the rest of Saint Landry parish colored. People whispered about it wondered about it. White people couldn't believe even existed. When Saint Catherine's was built in nineteen, thirty eight, the diocese set over a young priest from Dublin who arrived certain that he was lost, didn't the bishop tally that Mallard was a colored town? who were these people walking about? Fair and Blonde and red headed the darkest ones nose year than a Greek was this accounted for colored in America who whites wanted to keep separate. How could they tell the difference? By the time, the being twins were born Afonso store was dead long gone. But his great great great granddaughters inherited his legacy whether they wanted to or not. Even desharnais complained before every founder's day picnic. Who rolled her eyes? When the founder was mentioned in school, as if none of that business had anything to do with her. This would stick after the twins disappeared. How desert never wanted to be part of a town that was her birth rate how she felt that you could flick away history like shrugging a hand off your shoulder. Can escape a town. You cannot escape blood. Somehow the twins believe themselves capable both. And yet if Alphonse to store could have stroll through the town. He'd imagined he would have been thrilled by the side of his great great great granddaughters, twin girls, creamy skin, Hazel Eyes wavy hair. He would marveled at them for the child to be a little more perfect in the parents. What could be more wonderful than that? The Breath Bennett reading. The section from the opening, ten pages of her novel, the vanishing half. Now. Tell me. This idea, the idea of the town that is designed to get wider and wider and to exile or expel those people who are violations of its aspiration toward whiteness. This is a horrifying idea just as in. Edward P. Jones's novel, the known world, a town where freed black people on black slaves themselves. Tell me how to we get ideas as dangerous and strange as these. Long I started so when I started thinking about the book I I read about similar communities to the stat existed of Louisiana, these krill communities of fair skin, black people who believed very deeply that it was better to be light, who were suspicious of darker skinned black people in wanted to kind of insulate their community against who they perceived as being outsiders to me. Book was taking. This idea of color is on just pushing it to extremes by locating the physical town in sort of pushing the. The extremes of that ideology to think about what it would look like. If color is not just a you know something that's abstract, if it's not just something that you think of as a preference or sort of personal opinion about light skin, being better than dark skin, what is it like if this is something that is actually kind of instituted in place and to the degree that the population is almost almost kind of genetically engineering at so that their children can can become lighter and

Groupon's Struggle

Groupon's Struggle

"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.

Roger Bennett (Men In Blazers) on the Return of the Premier League

"We Win Stadium you will be at home. I can promise you will feel you support. Stay safe. We are still with you and. You'll never walk alone. That was liberal F. C manager Jergen KLOPP in a message released yesterday. That will bring a tear, not just the eyes of his supporters. The dare I say anyone who cares about the most popular sports league in the world. That's right folks. After a three-month hiatus. The English Premier League is back today. Roger Bennett from men in blazers fills us in on these frantic few remaining weeks. So grab a pint and US as sub optimal tour of English soccer. I'm sorry, English football. I mean it comes. It's Wednesday. June seventeenth. This is ESPN daily. Presented by marathon. Roger! Kim's. Are you relieved? Your any skin daily and not my NFL pod, talking about your beloved quarterback Mitch Trubisky You Know God Love Mitch. trubisky is an incredible pressure to be knowing that your whole life is just destined to pan out to become the answer to a trivia question in about ten years, who was taken ahead of Deshaun Watson Patrick Mahomes. Roger Bennett is suffering bears fan. He's also the CO host of men in Blazers on the NBC. Sports Network and the men in Blazers podcast by just braced for him to end up with the green. Bay Packers, leading them on a fourth quarter drive two feet, my beloved Chicago Bears, and I can't wait for that movement. They'll probably deserve it. And we're not talking about bears football today. The wait is over the English premier league. The most Popular Sports League in the world is back after a one hundred day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic Roger I'm sure you've been getting your fix from Bundesliga but I have to imagine the return of English. Soccer is hitting a little different for you. One hundred days feels like one hundred years to be candid. I've been staring at squirrels running up trees in the park, and feeling the adrenaline burst of a run through midfield, watching raindrops charge down my window and feeling just an incredible wing-play into play of missed from the primarily, but yes, it's back today with its global ratings I mean in Britain for much of Europe for much of the rest of the world outside of the United States, it's kind of a seismic as the NFL and the NBA rolled into with the Pantheon of heroes and villains to moments of glorious ecstasy, searing dispath fuse with dodgy haircuts snack tattoos. One hundred days off. When are going to have ninety two games scattered almost daily over the next couple of weeks. It's coming back because we love it because we miss it. It's coming back for. Hard news commercial reasons ultimately to an economic decision. It's going to come back and ghost game situation where it's fabulous. It's going to be different. The lack of an audience will have an impact on the football. We watched, but most importantly it is going to be good enough. It's GonNa. Be Great enough to connect us to a ruling global conversation and that's ultimately I think. Think we will miss about sports as our calling them. Ghost Games I hadn't heard that got left the Germans. They have a name for everything. Lay. They Call Them Guy Bela. And that is what they will be. Sam Darnold knows a thing or two about those back to English premier league, so we hit positive with most of the season done with exception of Liverpool they're. They're still to be decided. The top half of the table. Seven teams vying for five spots determine who will qualify for Champions League and Europa League which for those who don't know are the midseason European tournaments to be held next year. Roger Liverpool have clinched Champions League. Spot Manchester City has of course been banned from Champions League for Breaking Financial Fair play rules so that. That spot remains open despite city being second in the League. Right now. Arsenal wolves Chelsea Menu Lester Tottenham Sheffield all in the mix. What are you expecting to see from the top of the table? When the race for Champions League qualification, which is a bit like football's march madness, it's big tournament in which the best teams in the world. You're rail, Madrid, your boss Alana's. Para Sanjay Man's by Munich's compete all. Big English teams won't be in that for brand reasons for competitive reasons for commercial reasons and is. And completely wide open at the bottom of the table. All say English football has some Incorr- ellegation, which is if you watch game of thrones? It's a bit like the moon door. Teams get flung through that in baseball, the worst teams every year like the Orioles in the mall in which is flung out of the major leagues, the mooted, and in that place. We had the Tulsa drillers around rook. Rook Express and that is, it's a searing. It is a haunting. It is a savage palm of the global football tradition, and you have six teams at the bottom who are fighting to avoid what can be economically devastating their revenue roughly hauls flung out. The Premier League is savage for the fan base. One Minute. You are watching your team. Take to the glamorous fields, Manchester United and Arsenal the next. Round Brentford Luton Barnsley barring a miracle the Jewish using Norwich canaries will disappear, but there's five teams Aston. Villa Bouma th what furred and West Ham amongst them, two of which will go with them for the big story line. Meena is Liverpool Football Club. American owned little football. Club owned by the Boston Red SOx owners, F S J and their yearning. They're dreaming of a return to greatness that was once titletown by when I was a kid growing up in Liverpool. Just six points away from lending the title that they have dreamed of then. That is the great storyline of the season. On that note. This Sunday. The team that you root for I'm sorry. I'm getting a producer this side you support. Everton, we'll be squaring off against Liverpool. They are twenty five points clear off the other teams in the League, and there's possibility they can clinch the title at Goodison Park Against Your beloved Everton on Sunday

Apogee HypeMIC takes off... thanks to Jimmy Fallon

"Start today I want to tell you about. A company called Apogee which makes microphones and other audio gear, and how the Cova crisis nearly did him in but boy. They're doing great now. It is more orders for microphones than it can handle. I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech. Apogee was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five by Betty Bennett and two friends initially to offer audio patches to improve sound Ben. It is the husband of legendary sound engineer Bob Clear Mountain who did the mixing for Bruce Springsteen's born in the USA album and the Rolling Stones Tattoo, you but apogee was Bennett's who now runs the company solely one of the few women owned businesses in a very male dominated. Dominated Industry. The company quickly got a reputation for its high performance audio, which is on display at apple stores and used by many top musicians. So when the pandemic hit apogee was told to close its business down temporarily and Bennett was forced to send her employees home. Things looked really bad then she got a call from Saturday night live. The cast was going to put on a TV show from home and dated and microphones. Everyone could figure out how to use so she sent the hype. Mike Three hundred and fifty dollars is way more expensive than the fifty or one hundred dollar marks that you've heard me talk about here, but the sound is so much better. The company tells me. Plus it can connect to the USB port on a computer or directly into smartphones and tablets, and you don't need to be an engineer to figure out how to use it. So the SNL show went well then the tonight show called Jimmy. Fallon needed a mike for his home show, so apogee sent him a height Mike to then apogee started getting orders from all over the musicians who needed a way to dramatically improve. There's Zoom Lens sessions because as you know, musicians or not performing in concert. They're just doing live shows online. Bennett went back in started. Shipping Mike's personally the county of Los, Angeles said she could reopen. Because it was now an essential business, and now as I said, apogee can't feel orders fast enough.

"Wake up wake up a wake up. WAKE UP A. I say wake up. Wake up! You're listening. To mouthpiece Michael Bennett and Pele Penny. Finding. What is authentic like that word authentic? It's like. I think kind of disappeared. You know sure sure for a long time now and if you really think about it like what does that word mean, and what does it mean to you as a person and things that you're trying to do in life for yourself for your family for your loved ones I think like re grounding yourself and filling out what is authentic within your being within your work. You know whatever your work is if it's a creative work if it's. Your Job Your career, your passionately, what is authentic to you would just interested, though because people don't know, this is hard to be authentic when you have other people the pin and it's kind of weird, because like I'm like a AFLAC. We're at the stage and life is like if we for like something we don't want to do. We can't go like it's okay to have that power, but sometime I feel like is individuals. We don't want to tell people know and Dan we ended up doing something that does really validate who we truly are like. We really are mentoring and candidates like we were reading the Bible today. It was saying. You talking about like being a stranger right as seeking asking for help and I think a lot of us are looking in the mirror, and we see in a stranger, but we really don't know how to ask for help like we forgot will be like we forgot who we what we do, the music and it's like. I don't know it's just a weird combination when I look in around the world, and I'm Kinda just seeing the reflection like of seeing like. On a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about the value of the NFL like you know, it's like it's just one of those things where you just kind of like looking just like what is the true value of the fan? Experience was really the true value. Like at what point do you do something so much that you become it right right? You become the character that you started to that you in the road that you are in like. Have the character and if you are. GonNa, you're feeling. The pressures of those expectations you know and I feel like when you're starting to feel pressures of expectations. You have to really go back again and figure out who's expectations are those because sometimes you are assuming it's you know someone else's, but really it's your own that you're putting on yourself and those are not achievable. You're not going to reach those because they're made up. Making empty fake expectations that nobody ever was really wanting out of you and so now to go back and really feel like what is it that I want for myself before taking someone else's perceptions on such a profound statement that came from my wife. Yard at first. Mouthpiece, but yeah, it is, it is super is tough. Oh, because what really is who? We are acts, everybody's question. Who are you really? What do you really like? What is your true hobbies? What are the things that you really WanNa do in life like you know what actually makes me think about it, because I know a lot of times for me, personally I'm like you know we have so many thoughts and. And influences in our head from different sources. I think that it is important to talk it out with someone to people, because then those ideas just kind of float around in your head, this kind of stagnant instill and have anything to come out from. It's like it doesn't. It doesn't change right like it might read something. I don't to you about it. My thought in my head could just stay the same, but if If I. Talk With You then we'll think about it I'm like Oh you know what that's a different perspective? That's a different idea about it I, think like sometimes you know coming back to your own being is to journal because we have so many conversations with other people, we have ideas and things that we see through the news social media. TV, movies music. You know sometimes. It's like going back to the beginning and. And being in your own thought, but writing down and just kind of journaling your thoughts on daily just to kind of have that conversation with yourself, not making you sound like a crazy person, but just kind of like sometimes you don't need all the outside when you're trying to get creative zone, you really just yourself in sometimes we want those outsources for people to be like. Hey, like we need inspiration we need. and. It's like you really don't. People are inspired by themselves anymore more basic. You can be inspired. Of course you walk outside Your House. beautiful grassy area. Mike inspired from the clouds like icy that, but sometimes it's like also try interest being in your own self and drilling those thoughts in daily things that you're thinking randomly in kind of go back until like your own brain and know that you are, you can be your own inspiration that can be your on wanted to come out with your new creative. You know whatever that is through your work through your passion so true. I accomplished a lot. People all my listeners in Asia. Accomplish a lot, but there's only one thing that I truly enjoy. Accomplish me, Pele put the bike rack back at a car and put the bikes on there. Correctly. We have been bikes on. We've been tying them wrong and we did it. We also expire, but it was like those simple things amount of even though I did like so many different things at the moment time the bike. Bike around and getting the thing on their also inspire so i. do think you can get inspired by yourself and I think Philly's definitely write about US getting not own prison right because we formed his prison of ourselves in his prison, the being that we used to be imprisoned right now and everything on a shell of us is not really. It's a really big facade and. And I think we have to unshackle ourselves. Unleash our beings on these are chew cells unleash what we truly a passionate about, and not try to be into the group when it was cool to be an outlier again really have your own true free thoughts and free spirited. It's like the people who say are really want to be that way are being ostracised and it's like if. If you, don't follow line with the way that things are supposed to be of your NFL player. You take a neo you do this and people were like Oh my God. You not do what you're supposed to do. If you're doing more than what you're doing more than people like all, you're doing too much. It's like there's no Bisbee you could be you. Be You be.

"Not no? That's a good question honestly I. I don't think Michael's who got bigger. I mean there are some moments where he's jokes are also so there's moment for Michael it'll sound like he is but he's really not I mean all honestly say I think he's been pretty level Throughout this time but I also think naturally that you're just more like a humble person. He's not like he'll boasts. But it's like sometimes in a joking way. And so I think like sometimes people misconstrued that it'd be like Oh my God but he like. He's that person the way jokes that you'll be thinking it but then he'll say it out loud you know so you're like Oh my God. He completely said that. But it's true and it's funny so I don't know I think that I think you've been well-balanced to stay humble plus I'm right thereby him so mom pop. Those is that ever happened to my husband. Cape reminding and I'm not saying this now because you know he's a bitter at the moment but that would that really is true though. No she don't want any she the first wife I've ever heard the any tramps talking to my husband. Like I get that though I get it like if my boyfriend said he slept with a bunch of girls or whatever. I'm like that's good. That means that he was desirable for certain amount of girls. Someone someone wanted to fucking me now. You WanNa make sure that your person is desirable. Never had slept with anybody and that means anybody WANNA sleep with you. Come on I want you guys for coming onto you guys busy and it was a great conversation race we had. This was sell fine definitely busy. I love having those conversations have humor. Do we have like real talk? And I think you guys are very open and I think we all like is as we go through this current vars and we go to these times appearance where we trapped in our home. And everybody's going crazy what it just like. I'm really about to step out the window because I'm just tired of my people are feeling it but as we need to have that conversation. Why do you want to step out the window? What are you not saying? What is making you feel? That was that tear reflecting. So thank you guys for allowing our listeners to push themselves totally this has been S. You so much for having us I everybody is that Tom of the week or you. Kinda you know. Have our little pro tip in. La Does things we respectfully disagree on certain things but the same time we still love each other so today's prototypical today is how to communicate with your children about personal issues and topics that they're dealing with but doing it in a safe comfortable environment speaking to your children and making them feel comfortable to come to you to talk about sex. Talk about shaving. Certain areas. Talk about them wanting to be intimate or having these feelings. I think obviously a lot of people are like. Oh do not talk about that to your parents. I did not grow up in a household where that was safe to talk to my parents about. That just wasn't comfortable. And plus I grew up with so many siblings had three older sisters so I would go to them for certain things and talk to them or you know usually go to a friend so I know definitely for me with our three girls. I WANNA Mak- safe place where they can come to me but also sometimes I feel like you have to kind of nudge it. Because sometimes they don't want to talk to you about it. So you kind of have to nudge it to them and kind of start bringing it up and starting that conversation so they will want to talk about it. To agree aren't the communication is very important. When you have kids posit the is it possible to over communicate but at the same time Cuna Keisha I think is important where kids because you don't want your kids to be in a place where they can't talk to you when they come in. A problem appears and so many people that have taken advantage of because it don't of anybody to communicate where be able to share their true feelings without being judged I think sometimes as a parent is hard not to judge so I think not judging and communicate is very important for your kids to be able to have those hard conversations because as soon as you say something that you don't agree with and you feel that is negative and if soon as you turn it to the parent you turn into the dictator and you're not You know the Buddhist Mark. Who's there to listen and help them choose the inner light in help them choose the right path so deterrence to the judge is just harder for them to really trashy because they know that there's a verdict coming after that so to be able to really have the inner peace and have the conversation with your kids that allows them to trust you on the decisions that they look into make. I think it will make you a connection with them last longer than just their childhood. Because a Lotta times when kids are younger have no choice but to be connected to the parents. But when they're older they choose if they want to be connected parents and if you have open line of communication in the future kids would choose to. WanNa be around you so communicate and that's what I think. Would you think sugar hear people disagreeing what I say to them not disagreeing? I'm just thinking of like reflecting on my own. You know past experience how I might not have felt safe but also thinking forward now to being apparent on sometimes the girls are going through something. Payton's teenager and sometimes she'll say something in off the top in my head before I even speak. I'm like what the hell but then I like trying to compose myself and instead of attacking her feelings or you know sensitivities. I tried I dismore. Ask a why you know. Why are you feeling this way you know? Why do you think this is happening in kind of track? It she get to the root instead of just attacking the end result communicate and be a great listener. The project really is just clear communication through love though. Thank you. That's it that's it that's the end.

"By flora shots. Plan your dream out while you're doing whatever you know. Sansa like start. Making a plan other has plans are important. Not The do you have to stick to it. Like players change all the time like all ship Plan B. Plan C. But like having a plan gives you a direction toward your dream without a plan. Most people don't know where to go. How do I get to my dream and that is the hardest thing if you get in your car. You don't have directions. Damn you get discouraged about going anywhere you wait for you. Wait for the address. You'd like Damn I don't know if I can hear you won't go. You gotTa fuck you pull out a map or some shit and you've got to figure out like I said when you want the direction so why do why don't people try to plan out the direction to their dreams. I think it's I think I should run as you said that. It's like I think a lot of people are scared. The the money part of it is what scares people. It's like well. How do I quit my day job to go after my dreams? If I can't support myself you know if it's not if your dream isn't necessarily GonNa make you big bucks right away you know and a lot of people hold themselves back because they're like well. I still have to support myself financially so I think our telesis of like this can be your side your side Gig but people aren't willing to put in the hours for that. It's like a nine to you gotta come home and work on your dream until three in the morning and get up again at eight o'clock in the morning we're going to do it. You got put the work in because like when I was planning to League. My animation in my company was in London. So that there'll be days. I have to wake up at five to talk to them before I went to the to practice right but most guys wouldn't do that right like so I'm learning. I'm building off seasons where everybody else's travelled out Internet nickelodeon. I'll intern. I'll go cartoon network. I'll go to dreamworks. I go to Pixar go and I'm just learning all these different things job shadow. Somebody just any spaces and I'm learning the lingo. The jerk the jargon I don't know should they be say was going on then also people network wrong. You have to network for net worth you inches network to know people right networking for network. There's a totally different strategic plan if I'm interested in politics got to the BT awards makes no fucking sense for me right. Go to the governor's ball or inauguration or anything in politics does if I go to the presidential debate. I'M GONNA run into people who are interested in the same thing I am which gives me closer to my dreams of possibly me. Somebody that goes along the way you build those communities around your dream directions. People like people really giving it their all going. After it like I was I was leaving Martinez. Office one day in Burbank. He works out of the street from the Disney offices and I drove past Disney. And there's guys out so two guys outside with big signs you know I I was like Oh. Maybe they're just homeless. And then you read the sign sign was like will in turn like and they're like forty you know forty five year old men. It's like putting themselves out there story. Who knows what job they actually have during the day or whatever but like actually being willing to put yourself out there is the hardest part right and discipline the definition my definition of discipline is allow yourself to get what you want The snap snap at the my Angelo. She discipline is one of the highest forms of cell flow..

"Back realising your world doesn't have to be the way it is and we realized your what doesn't have to be the way to ask empowers you to realize that you can change your world but I think it also takes it back to reality because we know we are bookworm. Family and we left reading. Peyton is thirteen so she is definitely getting to the age where she can read more advanced young adult books. And so these stories that I'm you know all now I've changed al-Rida first and then I have a read it just so i WanNa make sure she can comprehend or or how communication and conversation with me but I think it's also where you get into a book which I always say is like a vacation in Japan. It is you get in there but then when you come out you are still in your own reality in so for me as a parent. I think that's so important where she goes into a book but when she comes back out we still have to teacher. What should is happening right now. You know it's like there's so much reality that you can't stay in the book though because it has a bubble and you gotta come out. So how do you deal with both? So here's the issue. Though right this is this is the Beauffret you dealing. What you reality here right? Wherever that reality your circumstances are well all the books and stories that people give kids of color are right back into the reality we can. He got game boys in the hood. You know see you tomorrow right back in and he gets shot. The kid kills bills a time machine and go back in time to stop her brother from getting shot by the cops. So we fed realities and then we read a book about reality. It's hard to get those fantasies fantasies. You need those because we have girls and it's like we have to look for those type of books than those stories and I feel like the books that I at least me is to the older generation because there's so much wisdom in their stories are different from what you're saying now where they're reading it but this is actually happening. You know in real life people right now. You know all the different stories so I like teaching teaching and giving the girls in creating a library for them so we started out with a few years now is literally creating a library for them that represents them so they have a section in the house where all those books are about empowering women of color empowering you know teaching the history of African American people you know taking all the way back to like the route so they can learn empower women of color and and in a in a world that you build like you can show you could build characters were just as powerful as real people in the world can empower you as a kid. You Watch Batman his his whole size. It's called a Batman in fact right so when kids go out and play as themselves. They don't feel as you know rollers. Yeah heroic but when they put a Batman mask on those same kids jump off a jump off something in jump off of right so now you give kids characters that look like they're those kids become more courageous in ways to now. If I'm going to be Harry Potter Harry Potter inspired a such a huge community of people to fight for what they believe in. Make friends those type of things. So I think we star Wars Star. Wars has of those closer. You Have Changed Course from those movie. Change People's lives right like I could call it like how many how many people you don't know who found out that they did. He was a neighbor. Luke I'm your father. Dale we'd be battle. Halter became my grasp cutting grass. We all angry as caretaker governor daytime but at night here. Hey extreme is he. Put the hat on that. He didn't take it off governor white white. Supremacist off yeah. But that takes me back to the question that she asked me earlier about Jackson won. How did I get to the point of the box right just to the answer? I went through a phase called. I called the Damascus phase. Ray So basically there's a period of time where each room are were into. I will have a different master to be around these people. Like I'll put this Martellus put that Mortello and I put this more tillerson. There's so many different. People is a fucking identity crisis so a lot of people have an identity crisis and Alain vigneault because we just have project and we can never be hold because we have to give people certain parts of us. So I started Damascus myself. Every time I met a different version myself so that I could just be the same person all the time and I went through that phase in New York say in Texas you could be a horse but New York. Qb UNICOR like the possibilities are greater. You don't sound like an for me. That's what our always loved New York for that period of time. 'cause that's when we went through that. D- mask Face how do you see Martinez in the next five years growing and Martos? How do you see Sigi in next five years grown are doing are? What do you see her projection? You telling you putting it into the air. What's West the projection? I told him the other night said I would like for him to be in the circles of I liked for him winning an Oscar. He says it doesn't matter. It's it's happening but I would like to see that in the next five years but I even if it's not like winning the Oscar it's to me it's more. I hope for him to be recognized in his industry by his peers. And it's not just like you know the underground person like if you know you know but like I like I. I hope for him to like reach that level where he's like highly respected by his peers in the next five years for him. He's always like that. I don't think that matters to me anymore. It doesn't like for me. It's more about putting out the amazing work. It's not about the the you know getting the gratitude for it but I know that like would mean something to him are grew the other. I think the biggest thing for me in that aspect. Very nice of you to say Tim Burton to be like Yo last book you wrote. Also her one point I thought I wanted to build a billion dollar company right and then I realized that's not what I wanted. You know saying I just WANNA be able to make my art at a high level and be able to live off my art right like on me. I don't want to have thousands of thousand points. I just want to tell the best stories in for me. I realized like deer black boy like as far as writing goes structurally is as beautiful. Like I like the book but hate the project and the reason why I hate the project and I really hate reading a you know especially when I read it several times because for me I want to entertain his. Take them two different worlds black boy. I feel like it's almost like a bridge telling them that they could go to the other world with the same time reading it. It's not fun these kids I WANNA like. Laughter is what I want to hear a response. I want to build these moments where the family goes to movies or reading something together and they laugh together like now where you gotTa have this horror harsh reality conversation this conversation. I WanNa build stuff where you'd like. Oh it's coming out like we gotta go see. We're going to be funny. You know I want to. That's important. It was important. I feel like it's an important body work of my and I love the work but like but the experiences I want to create for kids to have around my work is mostly laughter and fun right like I want. I like literary nonsense. That's basically what I write Java Java literary says but in the next five years I will say that the the biggest thing is to. I think they'd say hardest thing is that she's GonNa build as probably going to be a a network basically where it provides almost like a concierge of coolness right where provis co term concert basically where not only is she liked doing her own cooking shows or whatever but she brings on other cooks stuff that she likes other fascist styles that she likes based like a taste maker platform so people could come get the best of the best of the best type of thing but she also gets the dabble in like this make up but she doesn't have to do all of the the content you know what Hi. You're really good at hair. Let me get higher to come in. High is established of the week. Let's get her to a makeover for girl whoever's member whatever things like that and then you build this network where now as like yelp for corners but with it is a concierge of cool people need right now and if we're talking about like football world you always need that because you never know where to go that actually for just the idea is to get a membership so now you pay a monthly for this information so if you go to Seattle these top style is this is the top if you need like a concierge service of instances wives of the League or whatever right so if you think about that in general that's fifteen hundred people but that's fifteen hundred people every year and I think that's also opportunity so that's like a gift bag for you know if it gets bigger and I was like I don't know on the teams you guys have been on but when we went to the guy. The giants was the only team that literally gave wise. Like oh welcome packet of like this is who to call for dry cleaning this is for landscaping services. Some of the wives have compiled for a hairstylist aligned. So I think the next five years for six she'll be should be not the influence cer- but the person the influencers getting goes to the person that you go to find the best influence right now. Influencers are so watered down right but who were the top ones that really know their shit and just so that way people could go get the best influence and not just any influence people who are pondering on retirement from something are leaving. Something are trying to do something new as a couple. What information would you give them too so just journey out and just doing be free from whatever? Whatever they're doing it could be from wherever job one thing that they want to walk away from. You guys have walked away from something something that you really dedicated twenty years too. I say one is to continue education and when I say continue education education of what you love rice interested in wishaw keep taking classes learning more. About what shops because the more you learn the more you feel you can actually build a business out of it right so I will find what is that you love and put time into it because like once you put enough time into it the you know there is something that you can achieve and then we make that decision. It can't be a monetary You know saying can't be by money right. It's not really about money you got to think about key. What's the price of happiness right like as more important to be happy? 'cause YOU'RE GONNA be more successful as a happy person than you are ever going to be as a miserable motherfucker working for building someone else's dream a lot of people don't water themselves like they don't put time into becoming what they want to become. They picked it they put on. Whosoever is that craft is if you you WANNA one day opened up a flower shop. Will.

"Mom is white and your debt is so grown up so you you grew up an interracial household. How was that growing? Yeah kind of like my dad raised me for the majority of my life. But Yeah but how would they? How did they play on your role or your identity or like your outlook on life? Did it make you see like different size of understanding? Both cultures understand less. How does that play on You? That my my like racial identity has always been like an an area of difficulty. Because I think to me like I definitely had informed like how I grew up informs away that I see myself. I don't feel like I present to the world as a black woman. I don't see I don't I don't think that when other people look at me they see a black woman I in my elaine literally how I look I think the most people think them are tell us has is married to a white woman but like my black friends are mixed friends are like no like I see a black woman but to me that was growing up in Oakland California which is very culturally diverse but like growing up in black neighborhoods with black friends raised by a black father. And here's this very pale skinned little girl. That doesn't quite belong so it was always that sense of leg. I don't quite fit in in that in that arena either like I'm constantly having to prove myself that's how I grew up. I felt like I was constantly having to prove that I was black. I was the president of the Black Student Union and High School. That also reflects now that you have a daughter. Yeah she's looking at like we're joking about it because we're together and she doesn't understand and she's like she's chocolate. She says what it Blake say to you about me. When you're like your daughter asked you. You said that I was mixed and she was like what no he's white because they look at the skin color skin color acted to you. Know what it is. Yeah what I was seeing is that how do you reflect from how you grew up into now? Having a daughter you know like how does that work in the house and has a reflect on your experience for her like how she's going to grow up. Yeah I mean she's at. She's at such a difficult age with race like it's explaining race to her is very confusing right now because like you said they just look at skin color like she doesn't understand like that at a point in history and still quite a bit today like people are judged based on the color that may are and so. She's like no Mommy's peach like word is always like no mommy is black. They like about man color. Just the way that people are race was established by men to identify separate the people separate. But we just. We walked into the world. You don't get mad at Florida's read or Florida's blue yellow. A yellow rose is just as valuable as railroads like is just about the different colors arrangement so now teaching kid about color and then teaching the kid about race race comes with social constructs as the doesn't make sense right because his two people made it up like this is what we're going to do so it doesn't really make sense because it's just kind of like I get dead. Mommy's Pece Daddy's milk chocolate milk on yours chocolate but I see that but then like once you start putting race color and then you start putting race on like if you think about color. Why people are the minority. The majority of the World Brown world is brown rice at idea like the world is why is ridiculous? Right saying and it's just it's just like the whole race day because Jay is is super prow brown black girl. She's she's she's as black as they come as interesting because the way to work and the things that I create my characters or characters of color so for most kids like for her her first thing is like any word I bill. She sees tons of Brown kids so when she watched his show and she doesn't see Brown kids in it. I think she is. She's like Dad. There's no one that looks like me in his show we're watching Hocus pocus. And she was like Oh. I should call grandma Kathy. And should be as she could be a witch which Grammar Kathy and she was like I was like I was like ne-near probably be a better. Which though because she got a lot energy and she's funny. She's like many came via witch. Now's like why not because he's black dead and I was like what do you mean? She's like I've never seen a black witch and then she started reading all she's like. Dc or white. She's not naming on right now. Oh yeah she was right no buffs and the fact that she noticed that. Just think about what. You're saying like jet so smart so she notices that but then there are so many children that don't know that the issue notice it because of the things that create. So what did I do every single week? She woke up to a new black wished. I drew years one other words again. There's black witch about like arch our children before us like raising them in a family that socially conscious and like like you. We're all like act. You guys are all into activism and it's just like our kids have no choice but to celebrate their blackness or their or their Samoan culture or any of that conversation that we're constantly in our family like we're constantly talking about but I celebrate have probably had individually. We still don't know about each other that we had to face race color. Ism and I think it's so important because we're interracial couple people don't ever that when they see us they usually just assume like oh they're black. I'm like all four. Always say that it's like my responsibility. Also even though I'm you know of someone descent is a teach them of Polish culture but it is responsible to me to teach them of African American and African. Culture was really great. That happened yesterday. And this is why representation is an important yesterday when us talking about what you were. You says Moana Rice and Nashi got extreme and under understand exactly your culture. It can be because she watched the movie. So that's why kids being on screens and these different worlds by. Oh I'm just like whomever you don't sound like they're not like oh it's so beautiful. Your people were yeah. They don't themselves in a box. They get an understand of somebody else's coach. I think that's important because I feel like also within our sense of who we are. I think we've we've all been to different places. You've been in different things so you understand other people's culture while building our own kids identity. Be Proud of who they are. We also gave them. Understanding to other people are different. I think that's important apparent. Do because sometimes they go overboard and then they'll become on the left side really fast. It's about balance. It's about being proud of what you are. A big problem with other people are too right like I find. Other people are interested. Their coaches their foods. They're they're rituals those things like that. Those are interesting things you can learn something from those people right like I don't. I've never been to a Shinto shrine but when I'm in Japan I'm every trial I pray to the God of Baldness and he didn't answer my prayers. I'm bald right now. Japan when I look at that like when you travel the world. The the idea is that most people never get outside of their bubble to them. The world is small. I got a friend. Who was making straws right? Like PLASTICS PAPER STRAWS. Try to eliminate stuff in ellison but he was in the Mid West. I say people in the Midwest probably never even touched ocean. Do we care about what's going on in the rain forest fire people here that never seen in rainforest have no idea how to rain affects the world. Whatever they don't care because they see it right but that doesn't mean it's not your responsibility because you you should be educated enough to know what it or whatever. So I- digress. Now I think he does. They don't care about Dafa skin tied up in their six pack cans like they never seen a dolphin ever. They never saw. The beauty of the ocean makes me so I mean that relates back to racism as well as like is they don't like when it's like. Oh you got to do is pick yourself up by the bootstraps. What is white privilege? And it's like but do you guys know history like you guys actually don't care about real black history like do you know the thirteenth amendment like all these people not history. Because it's not right. It's not a an education though like I was like I was reading to the people people feel like they were education. I'M GONNA put that on a shirt education stupid. No because like I was reading this one book in his like a free free at last and his big book of different stories of people who was in the war in a lot of the soldiers who are in the Union. The first thing that they said that they wanted to do was create education. Get the opportunity to have education. I feel like if people understood like what they Esso's went through to get to the point of what the freedoms that they have now. They won't let those things pass by because like to to understand not to be able to re are re be an actual law that you share. You can't read or have this or have that and to have it and not understand the magnitude of what people been through. I think a lot of times African American kids. They don't get to know the history because the schools don't teach you. They'll teach the journey. They only teach the traumas of it. They don't teach the war. I mean the winds in the winds of Wednesday the Wednesday one or the ones that are undeniable wins. Yeah right the undeniable moments that they try to teach that they have to feel like they have to speak about these because otherwise. There's no way you can see bill in the rug but these other things that people don't really get to see on that scale they don't promote those stories those stories but those small stories are big stories in other people's lives. It's funny because then you got people saying like Oh domestication and proclamation like if the patient proclamation missed something to society then we wouldn't have to have their Jim Crow then Jim Crow Bean Jim Crow would admit something and then it's like then there would have been of rice. Cycle Civil Rights. Fighting for civil rights am fighting for freedom is almost two different things. It's like civil rights is like you know something that's us. Human Freedom is just wherever human is born with every her. Yes should be born for free. But that's I think that's an important people knowing the history because what if the people who had that message patient proclamation like yeah we free but we had to go through that stop. I think it's important that if they understand the history didn't they will never stop fighting. Never stop creating as like you like you still creating things because you know that there isn't a voice like that. What have you Ma'am just tired? Man There's no voice I feel a responsibility. I can get tired. I feel like I can't fail to. I feel like in a way I have to be able to tell these stories because not only am. I have to tell the stories that I need to tell right. It's not like a certain story to have like is is where because I have stories that need to be heard because I'm the only one I can take people to the places I could take a world builder. Our Bill Worlds. I'm not storyteller right. I bill world so people to visit and when you can visit world's fictitious world you come.

"Lifestyle going. Well we'll make this next two dollars to replace the. Don't take it out. This is the same person I'd be like this month so we can't do it. Just get it but but it's interesting too 'cause like growing up in seeing the stories that you did and now seeing like deer blackboard boy you brown girl all these different things that are coming out like is it hard because sometimes I feel like it. Nfl is such a a white fan base right so you write stories about do black boy. I feel like sometimes they can resonate with the stories like when we were at the NFL in Miami for a super bowl. They just look so uncomfortable. When you're reading the story at one thing that always catches mind our home until Pele. I was like those lady who was like the story. Be for everybody. You were like no this story's for their for black boys and the story. There's other stories that are for other people but this particular story is for that person. I thought that was a good way of answering the question. Because she said it. Kinda ru but you answered it so Jewish It'd be appointed like. Oh why are you not talking to my kids but whole thing is I look at our conversation and every conversation is not for every single person and I think artists make mistakes when they take they could speak to the entire world at once right so for me. I'm like I want to have this conversation with black boys so dear black boy this is for you. There's no doubt about it so when I had this conversation for them they also the thing is the black boys up to the fourth grade. Like seventy four percent a boys up to the fourth grade are up to grade level if you think about seven percent of the books represent kids of color. It's all people of Color Right. There's more books about animals. Our kids have color. So if you take you take you pull those out in anything about. This won't be mostly grow. Centric books are going to be black boys so if you think about not having black boys reading levels part of his not being able to see yourself in books from young ace. Oh what a book is so Brown right like the book is as Brown as it could possibly be if there was a shade of Brown in the world is in that book Ray so for me like I thought the Question Time I out this book as racist well is Harry Potter. All these other stories that have nothing but why people in those book racist there but once you start having a story whereas just solely focus on people have colored as world where why people don't exist. They gifts gets to a point where they feel like they can't be in that world. They want to be in that world right now. Racism though that I feel like white people get caught up in is the differences. When you're empowering a culture as different than saying my culture is the best in your inferior Like nothing you do is ever going to be good enough right enough. Speaking of the black power is not the same as like white. Supremacy is not the same at all..

"Afternoons on yours. We play right. They belong to someone else so you can never leave work and play. Well you know what? I'm the office today once you let's go to me here and let's have lunch or let's go do whatever. I. Let's go to museum this afternoon for lunch. You'd never get the option for ten years of your life is like doesn't exist so for us as like you get to start date dating again. Yeah right so you kids or a school you drop the work like all outlets have breakfast together right or or let's go walk to the coffee shop for a little bit. Yeah we always. We've always been very close like we prefer to be with each other rather than most people like. We're always together in the house but now it's like we're not like. I didn't think that we would be together even more. And like that's like now he disliked do our like like always together and it makes me think of marriage like to get better. No you don't I was like we're like we're so close and then I'm like damn we. We actually liked to spend all of our time together. Like it's it's hard for us like travelling because we're just so used to being like even with jet just like a unit like the three of us so it's like even when we travel. It's really kinda like hard on us. We're just we just like have our our our things like we just love being together. It's nice it's really cool. It's like with your best friend. You're just really with your best friend but like you were saying a lot of couples like sometimes they grow apart bartels always says like like you'd always joke but it was the truth and it was like a lot of guys don't know their wives or don't like their wives like when you guys are spending so much time playing football you some of these couples don't really really know each other on the deepest level. I thought you were going to come home and be good but now I want you to go back to work. Highest of life like the house of the life l. like the trials and tribulations. That's when that's when the real love commodity worse out that's before the divorce happens things and maybe that's what has all. Maybe that's why we have a stronger relationship because your NFL career was a highs. Nfl career was very rocky says Nelson and other garbage ships closer to the same reason why their relationship had very close because we went through a lot of life together. Yeah so like. Mary don't read experience a lot. Things like start traveling. We stores that say we start traveling together like when we started going to museums. It wasn't like I went to go visit museums. And she's like we had a lot in life. We grew together a lot of times. People grow separate Agai- like this person might get these interests and grow direction. This person goes in this direction. So say you do have like differences. I think what's beautiful about? That is to allowing that person to go in that space. Not keeping them in a box. So if you're looking that it's like okay. Let me nurture that unless you do that. I think that also applies to the kid. But it's all about keeping the box. I for like as an athlete. People try to keep keep the players in the bucks. I feel like your whole time as you've been like making a not a regular box making I boxed into a circle make it into whatever you WANNA do. I tell us that a black box away just for example like when you first America music on Youtube when I came out using you to people get mad got mad at players like why are you doing. Every player has a youtube channel. Everybody has partnered I was the first player athletes do later and I was. One of the first one was onto as we're okay. I was blogging for. Dow's morning news before anybody. Who's writing for anything? You know what I'm saying so like for me. This is what happened was I felt like I focus too much on the box. Sometimes right like I tried to prove that I was everything outside of the box right but the fact that I m athlete and I am a I am athletic. I am creative. I M this. What's makes me special so the most interesting thing about are you could buy a kit any toy but the box because it becomes it could become anything so your box could become anything so once. I realized like I'm in control of my box. No one could put me in my box. I can just transform box to be wherever I wanted to be. And that was a powerful thing and that was like A. How do you there you go to that stage? I think it was to realizing that there is no like a lot of times. You guys we try to separate. I'm a mom a wife. I'm a you know a party girlfriend. But no your mom who likes to part is zero. Single thing is you. You could be sexy and be a mom. Also you say you're a mom. Why do you have a no sorry about the jet heights me better than anyone? Societal structures and constraints. They're put in place. Make people put themselves in boxes so that they can be understood but the be truly understood as to be fully present and who you are all those things encompassed who you are. You're like no fear. Yeah because you have to walk into that knowing that it could mess but walking into your also you like I might fall but I'll keep going and I think that's scary in that part when people are like how do I make this transition or change into something else. Because they don't know how it's going to be perceived from others. A wife like the put wives in boxers too like they guy wife. You're not supposed to do she's not supposed to do that. Especially when your wife till athlete how do you? What are you doing to find your voices individual you during the fire your passions like because there's like a lot of people listen to the show that might be like in a place where they want to figure out. How do they go outside the box and create more like voice? I think for me it's on. It's an ongoing journey. Martellus and I are very opposite in that way. I always think like he has a very clear vision of why he went to what his purpose in life is and maybe he didn't know exactly what needed to be but he needed. He knew he needed to be creative. He needed he needs to make things. I've always been that person's like I like to dabble in this. I like to dabble in that. But it's that fear for me of like what if I fail so for me. It's always hard to like completely dive into something and put everything out there in like people and not be well received or something like that but for me I think in the last especially since retirement what I hear a lot in like feedback to myself like people are like. Wow you really are like very authentically yourself and I will say that like. That's something that having a partner who has always been authentically themselves has like that's influenced me greatly and it allows me to be whoever? I want to be whether that's okay. We're doing the gym like we're going to the gym. I'm inspiring people to go the gym or we WANNA do curly hair stuff where we WANNA chef. We want to do all these things but for me. It is an ongoing process of finding the things that I like and being okay with like I. Maybe that didn't work out quite the way that I planned it but at least like we got we have to try it so you must go to fill your no more. I am no like myself outside the box I have to do. I have to do it for myself. Like a campaign buddy L. So I'm GonNa highlight singing because obviously you know we've been in the family together for a long time so a lot of focus on you know the guys because of what they do but we do a lot and I'm not only saying as like wife's I'm like saying our family. I mean if Sigi I've seen her from the beginning. Starting a family you know before she even had a kid. So I'm like I've seen you also grow as mom as a woman to become you know like this evolve in grow more into like how not a role that I don't think it's like really a role you play like within your family because you were so many heads so you see her like juggle so many hats for her husband per moving for football. You gotTa have a hat for football. You GotTa have for your child you gotTa have yourself. So how do you? You're not talking about how he's going to run for yourself because you have to wear so many hats and I'm saying nothing you guys don't yes talking to you because you wear so many hats. Where do you find a space where you like? You can finally have like your own time. You're meantime like what is that for you. That's just for you. I think I had to create like I definitely fell like like some people. Don't know like Martinez are tell us move to La for me so it was like like yeah like yeah of course it helps his business to be in. Hollywood but it was really because this is where I want it to be. I feel like myself here. I didn't I felt like I was losing myself. Like in the suburbs like. I was living a white suburban lifestyle like Ma elect stay at home moms white suburbia. She's a station wagon. She.

"For Tele Jute things like that. I don't don't think intelligence says morning. Define me find until you're on so is being a animator and being influenced her and learning about the thing that you want to do within your books and stuff as a young black kid. What was your inspiration for? I knew I remember you. Writing Stories are like one of our punishments as a kid a mom used to make stories and shit like that and all kinds of UH. Recycle pediatrician differ shit. Like that and you just always rice stores you always Creighton as a Kid. Like what was your influence on into this moment. Right now were you like a actual animator. Actually put out stuff like well. So it's interesting because my creativity takes place in nineteen ninety six to two thousand and five. So that's the time period I Usually right in the application and I think that's mainly because that's the area where my childhood took place at the time where I was really coming into. My own is a child so the Venice the fantasized version of my childhood. When I visited I right So for me. It's really about growing up when I would watch things or make things. Willy Wonka was the biggest influence only ever in my life. I like what's your biggest influences? Always Been Willie Wonka. And that's because watching Willy Wonka. He may chocolate and everybody was in. The world won't fight for this chocolate. Everybody wanted his chocolate. People were lying by getting tickets. People were fighting everybody. Chocolate everywhere and chocolate changed. People is but I looked at his chocolate is more as magnificent creation that this guy was creating and then when I meet will he walk as is a century out. We're guide a lives in his place as Columbus which is a whole another story about Lupus and are too will have open up as personally sung songs airtime. Someone did some shit wrong in the house. Like yeah I would love to own Lupus like a bunch of people in chocolate but the idea of the chocolate factory and people want to go there and see how he made this and wanted to taste is they made me. WanNa make chocolate and dumais chocolate. Just I had to figure out what my chocolate was. A my chocolate is our books. You know what we're seeking as as as a wife you know sometimes you you supporting your husband as he moves from the NFL to up the nose how's it been watching him transition from the NFL to you. Know he's been crazy stuff the whole time. How do you support how do you keep? How do you keep that going? Honestly I feel like our transition wasn't a transition. It was just natural. It was like the easiest thing ever because it was what he was supposed to be doing. All along He's the only person I've ever met. This says like football with my side job. He was like yeah. Football's my side job. But what I really like to do. Is You know this long list of the never ending resume of all the things that he does but the transition was so easy because he just had never seen him so happy and at peace and actually doing the things that fulfil him in life daily and not have to have the added stress of going to his day job. So it's easy to support it because the happiness in him is so like apparent now like I remember so many days of him going to play football and there is no there is no joy there. There's no joy they're like they're they're days there were but there are more days when it was like a drag or you know something he had to go do. Despite loving the game there was so many politics or injuries things like that. That took away from it but now he just gets to do what he loves. All the time it dis. Oh No I love that. You said it like now because you are already doing as you're playing football transitioning like you said is not a transition so do you think that not are you happier but how does that look now that you guys are out like. How's the relationship got closer you know? Sometimes we only talk about retirement people apart or the first thing they have after.

"Like instrument new on it now but I just I was wondering since says we're getting ready for twenty twenty four can be been Obata. I'll be in front and you could be second So that that that would make vice president view second so you still get a good job but are you on the shortlist for any vice presidency of being involved in that way or manner. You don't WanNa tell actually don't tell us. Actually I don't want you to give me Michael Doesn't want to lose you right now but if you decided right now who would be somebody that you could get behind our would you do you see yourself being a shortlist for that or would you do it. I don't see myself being on a shortlist. First of all presumptious. Amita think that anybody would want me to be on the ticket with them. I don't know that that would be the case but I I I don't know if you saw this but I We were talking about. You mentioned the the young woman. The girl in Idaho with the air. Fifteen strapped her back Gone before the city council the State Legislature There was a picture of these armed masked white men with weapons of war marching up the steps of the state capital in Kentucky and tweeted that picture out and the the the words that company were wake the fuck up America like look what is happening right now like this is going down in America as we speak. I WANNA feel free to say. Wake the fuck up America when it needs to be said if I if I were drawn to album do what you do with that company in DC doing do that where rap every type of music music needs that right now. There's so much love. Is Music like there's so many live music. And and the way to have music shaping our kids in the weather until no young girls address. What are they telling our young men to do things like that? Positively tiffany of honesty that needs to be back in the music. So I say you drop the label. Gang gets you a couple of rappers ditching studio come out to Hawaii record. Get Your Faith Pele and ask you if I know. You're you've got a million things on your plate but if you could help manage my career the albums that we've got to produce the the BNB ticket that we gotta get ready for and twenty four. No I like you. I hope in in some way I WANNA be able to speak my mind. And and Feel free to do that without worrying about you can. Do I upset the party? Do I upset the president at the top of the ticket? Do I I I just think this is a moment that cries out for truth and honesty in in the most raw in real terms that we can possibly express them in and again. I think that is why I was drawn to your book. And why my son? Who's thirteen years old? I wondered if you want to read a book titled Things That Make White People uncomfortable. And he's a big big sports fan and it's his entire life and I said hey ulysses you know this Guy Michael Bennett. Yeah of course Michael Bennett. Well he wrote this book. I just finished it. You may or may not like it. elite by your your your bed and if you pick it up. Great if not. That's okay too. You know. Two days later he'd finished the book was really into it and and I think you know. Even though he's thirteen years old he also craves discount of truth in an understanding of where we are right now too much has been to safe and to Saccharin and two produced and we haven't gotten at the tough truths underlying some of the problems that we have in America and until we do. We're GONNA keep repeating the same mistakes and we're going to continue to have people like Donald Trump In this country making life even that much harder for for so many millions of our fellow Americans. So yeah this is the time to be honest. And that's what I WANNA do but I want to ask in go back and talk about your wife. Don't WanNa say shot to amy. Because she sounds like an amazing person. She's you'll be on track number three. You're putting your truth out there and being publican how your family also has to engage in that you know what is the role that she plays in your life and your family. And how does she mean to? I wish I wish she could be here and An answer that question too in terms of what she does. So she's very involved in education in El Paso in our in our school systems trying to improve the teachers and the pipeline of teachers coming in working with public schools outside funders and organizations who want to make sure that every kid in El Paso has a great shot at a world class education and so on top of everything that she does for our family very committed in her career to improving the quality of public education. And I'm super proud of what she does there in the community. At home she is. She is part of every decision. I make in my life. I just I don't do it in less Amy Good with it or Very often the idea might originate with amy for example when we were first thinking about running for Senate and we had this conversation about you know. How do we talk about trump with our kids? This was back in two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen. And how do we explain all this stuff to them? And then amy ask the even better question she said well. How are we going to explain ourselves if we fail to meet this challenge and so she really was the one who helped make the decision to run for Senate? She knew that this was something that we could do. Where we might have something offer in and it might very well Make a difference and then also is very often the backbone or the spine of the operation. I'll be tempted to take the easy way out of an issue or not. Take a position on something. She'll she'll call bullshit on that she'll say hey hold on a second You've got to be honest about this stuff and look. I know it's not going to be easy. I know you're GONNA take a lot of gruff for For saying this but but tell people how you really feel about this even if it's if it's not popular her integrity her ethics. Her moral compass is is second to none and I always want to be a better person because of her you know I always want to be worthy of her love and the fact that she chose me and that we get to do this to go. I want her to be proud of me. And I'm super super proud of of her. She means the world to me. I mean I think that's really cool. Though because a lot of times people don't really highlight they wives like that and we'd like to highlight both sides. Both sides of the highlight my wife for her to highlight me. And I just so much positivity to bring something to make to make sure it sounds so beautiful McNary something this commitment but the same time. There's honesty and there's some growth is is you need the support says yeah we call it crap paddlers so. I looked at the loaded. Assembly are not that not that Microwave Pasha real real. Should we cook and Gumbo and you got third row. So it is nice The wife like that manages and it gives your kids away to look at how they treat spouses like you are being the example of that and I think you should put in a hallmark card. That was that was beautiful man like out. We got actually GONNA cut that part out because the rest of the people. I don't know if I can live up to that. So you said the standards right man how you should love you a woman and how you go about your family and I think for me. I know you very well. I heard what you did but when I watched a documentary and at the end and how you embrace your kids I knew I was like. That's a man who loves his family when he came home. Any filter emotions of his family with his family was going through. It wasn't like you were being selfish so I just want to thank you for coming out to the thank. You are really am honored that you all asked me I've loved learning about both of you. Both through the book and the PODCASTS. And how you all make your marriage work and how you make decisions together And how you are you. Keep your family together and stuff's not easy but it's important and it's really good when it works out. Our everybody listened to this. Go vote twenty twenty four BB Benny Battle. Yeah as a matter.

"I gotTa Tell You I still am inspired by Colin Kaepernick by you by Lebron James by by others who have worked really hard to attain a position and status and are seen by by millions by hundreds of millions all over the world and who are willing in some way to compromise that earn position or or to put it on the line in order to stand up for something that they really believe in. That's important not just to them and not just the people who look like them and have had experiences like they've had but are important to all of us in this country and and I really feel that there's nothing more American than doing that than than than willing to put your your career and your status in your position on the line for something that you believe in and there are so many ways to serve. There's so many ways to sacrifice and I'm grateful for all of them. The men and women in uniform right now and I read from Your Book that Your Dad served in the Navy so you come from a family of those who serve The the people who are willing to stand up in their day to day lives and stand up against things that they know might cost them position or status or in some cases their lives or at a minimum their freedom. When someone's willing to do that I can you to call that out and make sure that you give credit where credit is due. It's the only way that I think. This country becomes a better one and has any hope of realizing its potential and its promise that you know as we said in the Declaration of independence we are all created equal. We've never realized that We never truly acted that way in this country. But I'd like to think we've never really given up on trying to achieve that and and the leaders may come in. The halls of Congress may come in military uniform Maybe wearing a football jersey or may be out on the court. They may just be leaders in day to day life in their community. But that's what it's GonNa take to make America better so no. I was very happy to say that on the campaign trail. Although I got to tell you that there were folks on my campaign who are who are asking me. What in the hell are you doing answering that question that way like we? We don't need that fight right now. We're trying to beat Ted Cruz in Texas. Become the first Democrat to win a Senate race since nineteen eighty eight. And you'll need to be taken on controversial positions. I think the the truth is it's actually not that controversial. It's just do. It's an honest thing and it needs to be said. But that's what makes you great. I think there's a lack of what people are calling honesty days. It seems more like a lie in any time you try to show the truth to try to build people up. It's like when a hate starts to come because it's like everybody is so silent defining with somebody speaks. They're super shocked. That somebody would really bring attention to something like that. But as a as a as I said as a black man as an American Human being like I I was like. Oh Yeah. That's the Guy Accuracy am. I think that's why everybody was so drawn to you in democratic grace or just everything grownup Texas. I think that's why we're both from Texas so that also addressed. We spent an and you'll appreciate this. We spent a lot of time in Bryan Texas in college station. Texas and at am not a place where I thought I'd be welcomed a Democrat and a very progressive Democrat at that talking about some of these issues including a criminal justice system. That disproportionately is Seeing black men and women round men and women behind bars for crimes or infractions committed by all people of all races or a healthcare system. That is the least insured in the country and is at the heart of maternal mortality crisis. That is two to three times as deadly for women of color. I wanted to say that because it's true and I wanted to say it everywhere I went and Texas in all two hundred and fifty four counties but to be honest with you when I went to college station Bryan Texas Raynham. I thought this is not going to be Received very well but I was surprised it was And I think in in in all these places in Texas that Democrats have written off or taken for granted or thinker to read or rural or too conservative. I think if you're willing to speak the truth if you're willing to call things out for for what they are and then willing to offer a solution for how we make things better. You might be surprised at the way that people respond to that and And and that's what I found in some of these places in in Texas including When I talked about Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players taking a knee We don't have to be limited by what we think is popular or possible. According to the conventional wisdom we speak our mind. We speak the truth and I really do think that good things will follow so we have to of course dive into the Democratic candidates that are still in the twenty twenty presidential race. Will you enter this? Do you have a favorite? I'm really interested in seeing how these Democratic candidates respond to the issues that are really important to us in Texas. And how they're going to help these down ballot candidates we have a racist gerrymandering in place that has drawn. African American and Latinos out of congressional districts solely based on their race and ethnicity to diminish the likelihood that they ever vote or participate in civic life that with voter. Id Laws With other suppressive tactics have been Alarmingly effective if we get a democratic majority. We start drawing people in and start making progress on things that are important to us like health care and gun violence and criminal justice and immigration so Bernie Sanders was just here in El Paso actually was really grateful that he came to El Paso. We are an afterthought if we're ever thought of at all in this far west Texas County. That is a Mexican American majority community one that saw the mass violence against Mexican Americans in US history. Twenty two killed by a white nationalist racist in August. Armed with an AK forty seven a weapon of war that has no business being in our lives and our streets or our communities. A guy who was not only fueled by hatred but in some ways was directed by president trump who's talked about Mexicans and Mexican immigrants as invaders as subhuman laughs when people talk about shooting them to to stop them. The fact that Bernie Sanders came to El Paso Texas meant meant a lot to me and others in this community. The fact frankly that that Michael Bloomberg came to El Paso Texas mental. I don't want to see if the other candidates are are going to come here and speak to us and you know Michael you talk a lot about this about going to where people are being open to new experiences and the experiences that may not be your own on what those candidates to come here and do this El Paso so I'm very interested of course and and will support the hell out of whoever the nominee is But I really WanNa see what they WANNA do for us here in Texas and I'm hoping in the remaining days we get to see that may and you talk about the gun violence and I just saw somebody. Idaho went to State House in. His granddaughter brought a loaded weapon into there. And I'm just like is a far cry between the right to bear arms and actually safety of our citizens like you said like. There's shouldn't be war. Weapons in our classrooms are kids are having to learn about this gun violence. They feel so unsafe to think that we grew up. Feeling safe like so. I'm glad that you have the courage to bring those issues But how do you convince somebody? Who's a gun as part of their life and and now they're being told that for the be taken away but in a sense you try to get them understand but it's not really about the gun is really about the safety of our citizens. I think you just said it. I'm sorry I shouldn't bail Michael Bennett. Twenty twenty four. Let's do it. I'm in I'm in no. You're absolutely right. That was a chilling photo to see an eleven year old girl with a weapon of war strapped to her back brought in by her father. Grandfather in front of the legislators who will make a decision on this issue to to say that that weapon is not intimidating would be ally and when you see it. Play out across this country in the State House in Kentucky guys in combat camouflage with body armor face masks so that you cannot see their identities wherein AK47's Ar fifteen th these are weapons designed exclusively for the purpose of killing. People are not meant for hunting not meant for self defense. They're supposed to kill as many people as effectively as efficiently as possible on a battlefield to bring that into a State House and try to intimidate lawmakers. Same thing happened in in Virginia to State House there in a red from your book. What it meant to you to see the Charlottesville white nationalist riot those marchers saying Jews. You will not replace Shouting racial epithets and the president saying that there were very fine people on both sides to see in that same state masked gunmen all of them. Almost white men try to intimidate lawmakers that is terrorism by another name. You do not have to kill somebody with that gun to try to terrify them into taking action based on your political beliefs and when you match that with terror that was expressed in murder like in El Paso where a guy came to to kill Mexicans as he said afterwards to police Then you understand what we're up against what I say to that. Lifelong gun owner. You know and and I know from reading your biography. You were raised to hunt into fishing to shoot and a farm. You understand what life is like in a rural community. What I say to you is I don't want to take hunting rifle and WanNa take your your handgun Our Little WanNa take any of your weapons but I do think that an ar fifteen AK47 which is designed for for war. Which can be used to terrify? Terrorize and intimidate. That has no place in civil society or in our in our communities in a country that loses more than one hundred human beings a day more than we see almost any other country on the face of the planet disproportionately Black Latino Men and women boys and girls disproportionate in Texas women who are not protected against domestic abusers. You've got to agree even if you're a gun owner even if you're a republican even if you don't like me even if you hate my guts than what we're doing right now is is not working and you have kids..
