"The weather. Network but if you click one of those adults will open the browser if you've got the browser there because you can choose not to have the browser but if you do have a browser available it would open a window and just say sorry. That is not available to okay. That's really good to know literally cannot go to a domain that your parent has not designated as a safe domain. Yeah kane. I love that okay. Do want to talk about social media to 'cause we've brushed on it a little bit but why no social media and why did you guys decide. Yes two games and parents can say yesterday up but like absolutely no social media me. Social media is that area where the most damage is done right below our noses in that our kids fingertips it happens innocuously overtime but it is the. It's the cause of that pattern. The causes kids to lose confidence in themselves. Which is i can't think of a greater tragedy causes chance to be so connected to this digital life that real life loses. It's important so true. What am i leader said it like this. One time he was asked. Wins the right age to give your kids. Social media in his response was well. How do you want your sons to be addicted to pornography your daughters to have low self esteem That steph is on there in social media just so so gager. It's this constant comparison culture. Where all all people do. This is true of adults to this is not just kids but always do on social media is compare selves to other people and focus on the things that we don't have instead of the things that we do have it robs us of gratitude and it causes us to question are worse and again if you go onto facebook for an afternoon you're gonna be fine. It's the it's the long it's the. It's the long-term pattern of focusing on on things other than what's most important in life. Yeah i like that. You said that. Because i would actually challenge you when i feel like. I'm always trying to counter that thinking of like social media's evil and it's all bad and it all just brings people down because i feel really passionately that social media has such a power for good and that we can do so much good with social media and i feel like that's something that's really really central in key to what we do with our brand and what i do is my platform and that's really important to me but i do agree with you that it's excessive use in the obsession and when people get sucked into like. That's how they unwind. That's how they get validation. That's how they're constantly making connections that feel real but they're actually totally not so you just hit the nail on the head. It comes down to. Where do you get your validation if you're only getting validated online. That's a really core password confidence and self esteem. And i'm not saying all social media's evil we use social media in our branch right that's how people learn about about true me but there's a big difference between adults and kids. Kids are not yet formed. Well enough to understand what's real and what's not real and to have a little bit of a disturbing judgment on people at presenting things. I will point out one of the big universities here in utah. Brigham young university just released earlier that year. A multi year. Study about the effect of social media. Teenagers in there was an unequivocal. Finding that excessive social media use in children leads to higher rates of suicidality or a disposition or suicide. And that's that's real. We have some of the high schools are state where teen suicide has become. An epidemic one. School had seven suicide did a year. Yeah that's not okay. That's attached to technology. We just can't we denied. Ah that's our mission. It's take you family. The safer option to gradually introduce the right tool this state schools to get them out of this. This right kerns them into stress. Diety depression in those severe cases came through aside. The suicide rate in the united states has almost doubled since the iphone came out fifteen years ago. It's a fad. That's the centers for disease control into until we we've got to be conscious of it as parents. Yeah well. I just really love all the things that you guys are doing with your brand. I think it's awesome. I am certain that we will be customers to and i'm excited to do that when whenever it's appropriate with our kids and i don't know we've we've talked about that. So it's i love that you guys have provided such a great solution so i have one last question for you and that is if there's one message that you want the people listening to this episode to remember what you want that message to be being intentional as you're making these decisions about kids in technology be very intentional. Don't just give kids technology because everyone else is doing it. Don't just kits technology because they're saying. I'm the only kid in my class. No that you're not alone. Every parenting america with dealing with east butts and just making ten children. Technology can provide dramatic opportunities for good learning for creativity embrace that when it's kind but steer kids away from those aspects of technology that we know come wealth risk. That is just too high. I love that. They'll thanks so much for taking time to share all this today. Where can people find you guys and look into becoming your customer. So oliver sales are done online. Www dot truman dot com..

"Dollars off. I saw that true me allows kids to play some games which i'm a little like. Oh i don't know about that. Because they feel like kids get so obsessive with games like even my own kids. We sometimes give them technology time. Where will we'll say okay. If you do all your jobs you get your piano done and you have done all your homework and you get it all done before dinner than for like one hour before dinner you can sit down and have technology time on the ipad and will you know we have like a few apps that we allow them to play a little educational game on or whatever but they. It's hard because i want them to help out. But i also see how they get like fixated on like once they get sucked in even. If it's something like abc mouse they just. It's like mortal kombat trying to take that away from them but you guys do allow game so talk to me about how that works still you and i are on exactly the same page in our family. We don't do video games. That was another one of those ones where heidi night early on said. We don't do gaming consoles and when we do let the kids do the educational games. It's very limited access. So we're on the same page and my business partner i. His name's dave in we had long talks about this deciding. How do we. How do we address that because there are families like like yours and mine where we say. We don't want games but there are thousands of other families that say no. I want my kid to have access to reasonable games. Non addictive nonviolent non sexual games. You know obviously stay away from all the the crud but they want their kids have have access to something. Because they don't want to have the fight so the answer for me you know as david. I debated this. It came down to the fact that it's your decision as a parent. You don't want your child to have gains though. Put them on the phone. You decide that in the parent portal. So the only the only way you'd have a game on there is if you elect to have the game on there in the kid never sees. The kid does not have access to the app library so they cannot see what's available puerto. So it's a decision for everything. Every family gets to make for themselves. And so if you do put those things on your kids phone. Like i think i saw the abc mouse was one of the options right. Can you say like you are only white listed are this is only turned on from four to five pm or something and if you make it in our window then you can do it from four to five but if your stuff isn't done than us your opportunity for the day..

"You thank you for that. If you look at the landscape of technology options you can give kids on on one end of the spectrum. It's the wild west that we've talked about. It's hand your kid unlimited phone. Yeah there you go figure it out. How fun with it. And on the other end of the spectrum there are some great solutions that are safe because they are so limited. We talked about the gizmo. There's a device called the relay. There's a lockdown phone called gab wireless in those have been great solutions for a lot of families because they they are safe. The challenge that that i see is that they're so limited that they're not gonna have staying power with the child. The child will outgrow it so fast. That a it doesn't become a long term solution for the family or be. You're you're actually robbing that child of opportunities to us stay healthy constructive apps. They could help them with their schoolwork with their hobbies in our family. We do a lot of scripture study. For example i want my kids to be able to descriptions on their phone. Yeah that's cool but we've done this spirit a suite of what we call smart apps still avoiding technology still avoiding social media but give kids apps they can choose from that we've already bedded Apparent can add those in the parent portal and then feel like okay giving my kids the tools they need for school like a digital classroom app but not giving them the.

"Should progress fairly quickly in important point here though. Is that with most devices. You give your kid that phone in. You don't have any control over who they're talking to you over who they're texting with. That was something that was one of the the things that we wanted to solve so on a on a truly phone for a younger child you can say. Hey i'm gonna turn on a feature that we call safe listing in. The child can only talk taxed with people who do as the period could into their contact lists. The you don't have to worry about spam calls you don't have to worry a predator reaching out and trying to start some kind of tech conversation i would. I would always start with just basic calling and texting with safe listing turned on canada. And then i moved to emma mass. So they can start sending pictures doing group text and proceed from there. We can talk more about what that would that progression looks like. Yeah so. I have a question though just even about this. Like white listing thing and when i heard about gizmo watches. Hopefully that's okay to bring that up. Absolutely i was like that's genius. I'm gonna send my kids to college with against a watch. That's awesome one of my kids. Has it gives little watch. it's been. He's too young. i wouldn't give them a phone yet. I do want them to be able to say. Hey i'm ready to be picked up from my friend's house and stuff attack does not need a phone but the you know the gizmo has worked great okay. But i've heard from a lot of parents that they don't like it. The kids don't like it. it's like has some drawbacks. So y especially since your kid has one what's the advantage of trimming over. That gives them a watch. Child grows that really quickly for a seven year old child. They're thrilled to have something but There there quickly comes a point as all of their other friends are getting devices that they're going to be asking for the device with we. Basically set up that first level of functionality. Replicate the functionality of gizmo where you as the parent decide. The people think can talk to but instead of talking to their wrist on on a watch. They're they're doing it with you a real phone so they feel. They feel more empowered in their learning. That responsibility We we want kids to learn responsibility. We want them to you know by the time they leave home. They are going to be on their own they do have to. Have you know all of you know. They have healthy habits with technology. Right and that's something. I'm concerned about that. I feel like okay. Honestly we have to give our kids something while they are under our supervision and they live in our home and they're under our influence because as much as it seems like okay. Let's put it off until the very last second till they're basically moving away going to college or whatever that's probably not the best time to hand them their very first piece of technology and say here go you know. Here's the wild last. Figure it out all on your own. So i like that idea of being able to kind of slowly. Walk them through and give them baby steps into that world. Just just like i had a conversation with with that individual about. Hey don't give your five year. Old phone also had conversations with with people. They're saying your son is seventeen needs to be using a full on phone so that when he leaves home in six months he's not just going to be immediately faced with this. I don't know what to do it like you said so. I think it's i think it's essential. The parents step kids into the different levels of functionality responsibility. While they're still at home can be monitored. I think it's the best way to go. So i want to talk about the monitoring thing too. Because i've heard friends talk about how difficult it is to actually monitor the conversations and know if there's bullying going on or if there's any inappropriate conversations or whatever i mean we love that movie What is the movie where they foster these kids and end up adopting them and it's it is so funny has mark wahlberg in it. I wish i could remember the name of the movie. But it's a really funny movie and the girl in high school has like this boyfriend who starts sending inappropriate texts and the parents think it's like this high school kid at her school and it turns out it's like the adult janitor and so there's this whole funny like showdown with the i mean they make it funny but it's also kind of like. Oh dang that's also something that actually happens where you know i've heard of i mean i've seen both sides where my friends are trying to monitor the conversations and then i've had friends who were like. Oh yeah in high school. I used to just change like boyfriend's name to like amanda or whatever and then. My parents weren't really watching that text thread because they thought i was just talking to my friend. Like i've heard all kinds of so and most of all my friends that are like setting up a hacker. They get the. I messages on a separate device. So that when their kid deletes them off of their phone still somewhere else and. So how do you guys navigate that whole thing. I know you have something pretty core set up. Yeah that's great. so i. If your child is using technology use should be monitoring in so. We're on the same page there. It is difficult for every parent through that process of aright. Bobby or sally. Let me see your phone. You know remind me your password. Is you know and you go through that process of skating text messages so we are unrolling a feature right inside what we call our our parent portal. That's the the app that we've developed where apparent controls all the functionality of their of their child's phone goes through the settings in determines what's available and what's not available. We're adding to that the ability to remotely watch all of the text messages. So they'll all get logged even if they get deleted on the child's phone they show up in that aired portal so periods can have a a real time view if they want it but they never have to be up in their kids face having that many families in awkward or a tense or sometimes even bad if moment of let me look at your phone. We're really trying to help care. Have a positive relationship with their kids through this whole technology thing. I just philosophically one of the things. I just can't stand is staying in having any kind of a wedge that comes into a parent child relationship around technology. What a waste. What a waste in. So we're turn it provided tool that. Lets parents be involved with the kid feeling. They know their parent is. It can watch but they. It's not this feeling of i'm up in your face and up in your business all the time. Yeah that's really cool that you guys have that so my next question that i've been meaning to ask is what sets you guys apart. What makes you different from other competitors in your space..

"Just is driving me nuts without question almost every day and my answer is always well. I was eighteen. When i got my first phone. So you can for sure get one. By the time you're eighteen but anything before that like No promises so. I just can't wait to ask you all my questions but don't tell me a little bit about yourself and how you got into this industry. Thank you so much for having me on great to be with you and your listeners. Today my background is actually in. Marketing is so i've spent. I might university education in twenty years in the marketing industry. I've been concerned with communication in studying communication in or couple decades. I've been concerned about the effect of technology on the way we communicate as humans now for marketers. It's been awesome. You know all these new channels of mobile technology and social media. It's been great for marketers. I think it's been great for us. As individuals in the way that we relate to each other and frankly the way we take time for ourselves at detrimental effect. So that's kind of the long background and then more recently as as a father I've got five kids of my own ranging from seventeen years down to five years. I've been in the middle of it. The dad watching. What's the effect of technology on kids. Can recently it's been the question of. How can i help. Make steak for experience for kids everywhere. Yeah awesome okay. Was there something though that really triggered you to be passionate about specifically kids and cell phones and making that safe. Was it just your own kids or was there anything else that happened. That really made you passionate about this. It was concerned for my own kids but it was also having friends who had some pretty horrific things happen in their families to tell one quick of a friend of mine who just like every parent in america was being badgered by his his child. About what my phone. What my first phone. I want you know. Let's do this it. He finally relented. The boy was eleven or twelve in. They got him flip. Phone will flip. Phones aren't popular with kids. They get made fun of and everything else. So the badgering continued in win. The boy turned thirteen. Parents got him an iphone a full function for future iphone in my friend as he's telling me this story was literally in tears and he said bill. We went from having the sweetest family life. You can imagine living the worst hell you can imagine in a matter of six months. Oh that's so sad and tell me about that what what happened and And he said within two weeks of getting that full fully functional iphone within two weeks. Our son was addicted to pornography. And within a few months after that he was trying drugs he'd been contacted by drug dealers in in in people through social media in by the end of that six months. The kid himself was dealing drugs in the church. Parking lot during sunday school. You can imagine the emotion of that. And here's the interesting part. I said to my friend doing well enough that without being judgmental i said to him entertain. He you didn't have. The parental controls turned on totally. That's my first question to and he said bill. I saw i did allow. And that's the problem. Is that a lot of the controls out. There in some of the native operating systems are are so difficult to manage your maintain that that parents don't get it all the way complete or kids learn how to get around it in asker the controls out there so that was part of this this whole thought process of their scott to be a better way. Everything i've worked on over the last two to three years of stemmed from that that feeling. That's so interesting. So that's kind of an extreme example but talk to me about some of the most common fallout issues that parents deal with in and mike and average kit. That is kind of an extreme example right. That's definitely an extreme example. The obvious concerns in risks are.

"90. I promise I will have a video up tomorrow on our social media platforms. I've already been berated for not putting one up today. So please, please, just let me settle into my new schedule for Intel seven and I'll get up to speed on the social media tomorrow. I don't need any more threats from little Steven Travel Candy. The tyrant Quick. Pierce is a terrific writer, longtime writer political reporter for the Chicago Tribune and joins us now with some of the inside story regarding Bill Brady, who has resigned from the Illinois Senate. He was in the Legislature for 27 years. First on the House side moved to the Senate in 2001 top leadership position since August. 2017 and Maybe. Not surprisingly, but abruptly decided. See you all later. Rick Pearson. Welcome back to double else. Happy New Year, sir. Were you surprised by this? Hey, John. Happy New Year. Yeah, it was kind of surprised. I mean, one thing was he had announced, you know, a couple of months ago that he was giving up the title of Republican leader of the State Senate. And it's always kind of difficulty when you give up that leadership position to become just another one of the members. So I was surprised because he had given no indication that he had planned to leave. But, you know, then you do it. A New Year's Eve basically and a parting shot After all these years and internally, one of the most Noteworthy lawmakers Republicans, politicians from downstate Rick Pearson. What is his lasting legacy? I know I ran for the governorship three different times, lost narrowly to Pat Quinn. I think the third time but what is Bill Brady's legacy in Illinois politics? Well, I think it's one of perhaps the world would being on the cusp of what is a Republican in Illinois these days, and Brady certainly was a conservative, not only physically but socially. And the fact that that race against Pat Quinn where he came within, like 30,000 votes of being governor, you know, showed where. Illinois Woz at that point And and since that time, you know the politics, obviously becoming much more polarized, left and bright in a number of Brady's fellow members of the Republicans in the Senate. Uh, Just himself, and he was not reflective of the times. I mean, I should point out, you know, Here we are. Senate Republicans are a big minority in the Illinois Senate. In fact, in the November election, they lost one seat. So it's now a 41 18 democratic majority in the state Senate. So the question is being leader of that 18. Really? What does that get you? I always thought the guy was quite principled. I thought it was very, very smart Eyes. Enjoy talking home. I think perhaps his financial interest in the video gambling industry dinged him a little bit towards the end. Yeah, exactly. And the fact that he was getting commission did he did not vote on gambling legislation, But still, you know, given the historic questions to revolving around gambling and You know, you go back and those decades ago to the issue, of course, racing and its influence in Illinois politics, and so you know. Yeah, there was that issue, but truly when it was clear that his colleagues We're looking for knew of the year ship. There really wasn't a place for him to go. But as his friends and confidants tell me that he's not giving up necessarily on politics. And stay tuned and see if there's a new chapter there. And I do think it's important in Illinois politics, regardless of partisanship that downstate voices get heard. Yeah, and the thing is, you know you're again about divisions and everything. You've got that. You know, group down in Eastern and Southern Illinois that said, Chicago out of you know, they want to talkto seeding the create another state. Well, do I do I anticipate a primary a Republican primary? What's left of the Republican Party? Have we wanted T to find that Between Adam Kinzinger, Bill Brady. For Senate, you know? Well, I'm curious about that. I mean him finger when I talked to him, and you know, now he's become a tweet monster. I mean, he is. Is that all the time And it's funny seeing the blowback too of people saying, you know, you're just a rhino. You're not You're not really Republican. But in that I'm curious about Kinzinger because I don't know that he knows state government and he knows he knows the feds. And I'm kind of curious whether what he might be looking for is Maura Challenge to Tammy Duckworth's Unnecessarily running for Illinois governor. I don't think I see him is running. I see him is running for Senate. I see Bill Brady may be making a bid for Senate too. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, you know, he's given it a shot for governor. Um, but definitely the bottom line is downstate Voices need to be heard as part of Illinois e I mean, real downstate voices, not the supper. Artistic movement, because it's just populist garbage. It's not gonna happen. It zits away to stir up a disaffected base. Instead of talking about real solutions to how to help things and it's easy. It's easy to complain. It's easy to complain it's hard to govern. Yeah, it is. It's one thing the campaign. Absolutely because you can say anything you want. Now, let's now let's put the rubber to the road. And what do you actually going to do? Rick Pearson is here in our remaining moments. That's a lame duck session starting there. The House lawmakers are returning later this week. How lame Willoughby consider Madigan still trying to determine if he survives. There's no agenda out there. Why even get together? Well, I mean, there are certain things that didn't get done back in May in the pandemic, end of session, and I think there will be a push for some of the crystal criminal justice issues that the legislative black Caucus has pushed forward that Democrats have said they support s so I think they'll be a movement there, but really, we've got this Look at the Madigan issue going on. We've got the state financial issue, which is huge. And the fact of not having that certainty of leadership really makes the question what's going to happen. And don't forget the fact lame duck legislatures are always the time when everybody looks about tax increase. I don't know that the MO mentum is there. The governor hasn't come out front to talk about one You talk about cuts? Uh, I think, though I think this is going to beam or about the fact that they haven't really met together in May to try to find any kind of standing over. Where where Two people stand A Madigan. Where do they stand on the state's finances. I think truly, it's more of a gathering issue. Which, because of covert, they really haven't had Is careful with getting any closer. No, no. No, the only the only challenger to manage it announced. No. I will tell you when the new legislature sworn in on 13th, and of course, the house cannot do any action till they elected speaker. I just have to tell you. I don't think this is something that's gonna be resolved, You know, very quick manner. When was the last time a dark horse candidate took the gavel when neither obvious candidate had had enough votes? Well, that would you know you're now you're making me think that makes me feel like an old man built. 75 was the last time that there was a real issue and it and it went on for weeks. And it finally took Republicans to convert over and this was back when you had the bigger house, where he had representation of the minority party in all districts. So this was basically you had Republicans from DuPage County supporting Bill Redmond from Bentonville, Democrat to be the House speaker. Hey, it doesn't work that way anymore, which only makes this thing look like it's gonna beam or screwed up and really a lengthy thing, And I think Madigan's basically hoping that attrition falls into his favor that the longer gets run out of the The more he feels, it becomes apparent that he's the only guy to be reelected and speaker totally agree the money of the waters. The more of a survivability factor is in his favor. I totally grew that Rick I hope that in the not too distant future, we can meet after the show two of our favorite bar stools in the corner there to Billy. Good. Absolutely. I'll hold it for you as soon as I get the go ahead from state, okay? Thank you, Rick Pierce. So much appreciated, sir. Thank you, John. Take care. Rick Pearson, Political reporter for Your Chicago Tribune Greetings from 2021, but actually 2020 did have a few success stories. If you're willing to look hard enough, let's talk a bit about that.

"These texts on how to put either sleep. Why don't we literally? But you know what? I'm talking about. Kevin up. Senate Republican leader Bill Brady's here. What are you more into gambling or we'd because apparently after last weekend? That's the deal you know, I'm into a balanced budget and growing the state's economy and. The budget. Yeah. All right, the budget, we got a good infrastructure program, I believe, and there's some good things in the budget healthcare for for nursing homes, slaps good education funding and some good things in the budget. The infrastructure piece going to get paid for is just the gas tax. That's not enough as well. There's several portions of the infrastructure, there's horizontal. And there's the vertical what's so horizontal would be roads and bridges. Okay. We've got pretty bad situation. The statement bridges Amen, Heff closed. Some if we don't do something. So the investment, I think is a, a great ROI. Not only in terms of we have to tear down and rebuild cost ten times more is opposed to economic development. We don't have an infrastructure. We can't keep them grow vertical part of that the vertical would be what we would invest in say, education, and hospitals and other things. That would be a portion in the way it was pretty structured is when we passed accustomed to show amendment lock boxing road fund money. So you can't spend anything else. Exactly. Seems like a good idea by the way. Yes. And we saw a lot of money under Begovic Quinn stripped away from those road projects with creative problem. And so now that the funds will go in there, the motivational funds will go in there. The registration funds will go in there. We can be assured. There will be reinvested in the others. The vertical was pretty much funded by the expansion of casino, gaming and sports betting. The betting piece goes into effect when I think everything becomes effective soon as possible, hopefully in the first of the year. Okay. And any concerns about the gambling peace. You think it's going to be regulated enough. I do I do I, I recused myself from that vote because of an interest, I have in a business that has a relationship with video poker company, but I recused myself from discussions of that particular piece of it gaming, I think become an industry and no doubt. And with the fan duels, draftkings of the world operating sort of, like Cowboys in the old west without anybody looking to get a piece of their revenue tax wise or other things. Why should we be left alone? Well, people are going to bet on sports one way or another, and, and the and the state getting its share as opposed to losing out the Indiana and other states into illegal industries. Makes sense and the leagues are all getting behind it. Dave the NBA the NFL, the NHL MLB in MLB babies. The first in here they're all getting in on the legalize sports betting. Yeah. They formalized relationships with some of the like the fan duals of the world. And, and this is the kind of the next chapter for them where they always wanted to distance themselves from them. And I think Senator Bill Brady what you're saying is if it's going to happen, why should we sit on the sidelines? Exactly. So the gas tax piece lot of people are not pleased about it. How I've been since we had a gas tax increase will, I think goes back to maybe want say, president two thousand nine I think you're right. I think it's longer than that further that, you know what's interesting, if you study win the last time, we had the gas tax and you were to adjust that from flation it would be almost exactly at the places that today. Okay. Let me let me say this. It wasn't my idea. In, if, if the Republicans control the legislature, there's probably not one piece of legislation that would have passed or budget the way it did. But we don't have control. We would have preferred I think, to see other revenue sources used but given where we are in and given the situation we were in, I feel the increase in more fuel tax was justifiable, particularly with the lock box the concern, obviously. And I know you're concerned about this as well are the small businesses that truckers, and the guys like that who aren't making a bunch of money? Interestingly the businesses in the state supported the infrastructure Bill, the trucking industry support of this, they need good roads to transport members willing to make that soi because, you know, replacing an axle, it's broken through pothole city is expensive. Exactly, the hardship will mostly be people who pay for it in from a business standpoint gas stations. Convenience stores near border states definite hardship their work. We're concerned about. That I know you're accused yourself from it, but do you have any sense of where this new casino or two casinos, go, don't executive take the rest of the year to figure that out, too. Well, it'll be up to the gaming board. Applications will be taken the game more, we'll have to justify their selection process, I think there will be a push to move quickly forward as possible the state needs resources. We still have a backlog of pay bills that we have to work on pain down, and anything can be done to bring those resources bring the business investment to the communities that are going to bring the jobs that come with the construction and the permanent jobs. Particularly the Rockford area. For instance, there's a real situation where the state of Wisconsin has looming gaming industry that hopefully will be able to block and be able to keep that business in Illinois rhythm losing to Wisconsin. That would be a good thing when we come back, once you answer, mysterious question for me, because you are elite Republican in the great state of Illinois. Is that harder than ever in give Republicans who are listening? Some reason to believe that they're doing the right thing, and that there's hope down the road. Because the idea that Republicans have just given up the state to Democrats. I don't think is a fair assessment of things. I agree with you, Mr. Dirk, and another. We'll come back with at a second.

"Week is Dave gash. He is the executive producer and writer of the big bang theory. He has been with the show pretty much from the very beginning. Let let's talk a little bit about the show. It's been the top rated sitcom for how long now for a really long time. I'm not exactly. Sure, yeah. We, we've had a great run. And there are a ten riders. That all work together in this really unique way. And you say unique because I always think of my framework is shows like curb your enthusiasm, which is also its own thing. Or, or Seinfeld. We're one or maybe two people would write a script. And then we'd go to the riders, and the jokes would be added. You guys do a very different approach. It's not a single writer, and then it's punched up. It's a whole group discussion. Right, right. The standard model is to have you break the story around a big table. And then and come up with an outline and send one or two writers off to write it, and then come back and get notes, but which Lory noticed in his long storied career was that when those scripts came back, you spend a lot of time rewriting them. So what if we just had this board and had everybody's eyes on the script, and we went through it. And one of the things that happened when you go off to write a script is, of course it sounded great. When you were talking about it. Awesome in that little outline. But now it doesn't make sense or even better, you came up with a twist that is better for the story. But you've got it approved and you've got to kind of stick to the outline, and you don't want to bug show runner, but we've been able to do is sit around the room come up with it together, write the script together and then have that freedom to pivot and turn and follow the story. So sometimes people say, oh, my gosh. I didn't see how that was going to happen at the end. And we said we need to do. We, we discovered it along the way. It'd be more fun to go this way, or to go that way. No, no. We're in the Chuck Laurie era of television where the laws were passed the no sitcom to be on unless it's either created or produced by truck lorries that set more or less true. He he, he think about all of this shows right, is two and a half men was his. So it's civil grace under fire Dharma, and Greg tuned. A half man. Big bang theory. Mom, Mike and Molly. And the. I just wanna Golden Globe for Kaminsky with. Yeah. And now his new show just got picked up. Bob hearts Abbas Shola, which is going to be on CBS. And I saw the pilot. It's really, really funny. And so it's no, he's, he's incredibly talented but he all span. In addition to that he has this process for making a show, which is different from the, the way, other people make shows, and that ends up having a big impact on how successful the show or at least that's the correlation that seems to exist, he touches something. And it I mean, has he had many shows that haven't worked out, especially well. You have to think about it to know. Yeah. Yeah. There is. There's there's a story that a long time ago. Some network bought a show with him and Tyler Perry. The two most popular guy those guys that show didn't get on the air. Those two guys, it was supposed to be a dark documentary about the holocaust fly bring those two guys do that. It didn't make any sense, but he, I don't think anyone has the tracker. Life is astonished. So one, so my wife literally started watching the big bang theory from the first show, and I watched more or less, what she watches other than a handful of project. Runway you're flip this house. And I will specifically notice how the show has iterative over. What is it twelve twelve years twelve season two hundred and seventy nine episodes, which is slightly more than your episodes. You're like two fifty something? I'm coming up on two fifty right, soon soon, you'll pass. Taking me five years to get. Beauty of once a week. And, and that's the beauty of two idiot sitting and talking in a room as opposed to a whole television for our budget for this show is exactly zero. So it's pretty that's not true. Because the electricity cla something but anyway, and Medina close. So we so I've noticed in the beginning. The thing that was so appealing to me. I don't watch a lot of television, but I got pulled into the show 'cause everybody was pretty dysfunctional. This was a group where most of the main characters certainly the four mil characters were at various points on the spectrum. Certainly it's implied that Sheldon is either autistic or aspirin or somewhere on the spectrum and over the years. That's kinda moderated a little bit. We've mainstream them tell us about how this has evolved and how do you stay true to those original characters? Well, I think it's a testament to Bill Brady and Chuck, creating this show, which was those characters were inspired by Bill Pretty's experiences here in New York working at a computer company, and really brilliant, people, not exactly the most socially, exactly stepped so brilliant people who are not socially, as not the genius socially, that they are in other ways coming up.

"I every once in a while I like to take the show. I like to check on how my money's being spent to do that. I like that approach. Money's been spent for how much money I'm going to end up going to all of us. Just call the state of Illinois for the next couple of years because there's a lot of proposals going on right now. They're trying to get about a hundred things through the state legislature really quickly before the end of the month before the deadline so they can get to. There's marijuana their sports gaming, there's a tax increase all of these things that they're trying to get through. What does that mean for us? What does it honest to God really mean for us? So state Senator Bill Brady who is on the Republican side is the minority sided minorities that both the house and the Senate. And then the state house is Jay Pritzker. So it's the first time in a while that has been the case and what from the Republican position here. Bill. What do you see getting through and not getting through? First of all big forever meal. Good to be with you. Both. I think the governor has had a lofty agenda. He ran, a very liberal primary to do, so he had to make some commitments or take decision, some issues. He's finding pretty full. You've got the budget, obviously, which is the biggest one that you've got his graduated. Income tax has to to limit the issue sports betting. The issue of adult recreational cannabis and other things. And you've got a new mayor be sworn it on, on next Monday who believes that Chicago, I would be better served with bitter team than you would casino. So there's a lot of a lot of the plate it's been dealt with that the mention infrastructure Bill that will. Invested rows of bridges and potentially even one that would be vertical structure. May ask you about the idea here that you have to have a constitutional amendment, essentially to have graduated income tax. How likely is this to get done quickly? If at all. It has been done quickly dangerous proposition. I mean, I have civil concerns. And the biggest one is. If pass there's no protection in my opinion. Some Democrats raising tax rates on middle income, families and Lee. Even before we get there. Let's step back. How does it? Get passed. It requires this constitutional amendment. How does that get done? Has to put about sixty percent of the voters have to vote to approve it. That would be twenty twenty I'm assuming would be member lecture. That's where the other dangerous propositions every governor in the country will use the. Undecided. Issue here would be known issue here against this when it comes to recruiting retaining jobs. So, okay. Well, yeah. I'm just trying to just the mechanics I because it's it would be up to the voters of the state of Illinois to alternately make this decision, right? It's got it's gotta pass out of the house, and the Senate majority or supermajority to get to the super supermajority. Okay. So sixty six percent or is it sixteen Eleanor, I never remember those fifty percent sixty percent in, in a house in the Senate, and then it's got a go onto a referendum of binding referendum on the ballot. In November of twenty twenty and everybody has to vote and sixty percent of the voters have to decide that this is a good idea. That's right. Oh my God. Magin the air war that is going to go on in advance of this. We already see ads everywhere. Right. You just you can't you can't turn on your television without seeing ads trying to support why we should be in favor of it to how likely TV will be the big winners. Yes. I know I'm very excited about it. What do you think? How do you think it's gonna get sixty percent across the board here, and that we're how likely do you think it is end up on a ballot? In November of twenty twenty two have graduated income tax problematic. I think the house is still heavy past ascetic. I think the house has problems with the rate structure in other issues associated with the certainty of this, I'm hopeful that we, we are able to keep it from getting on the ballot. Seems like such an ambitious list of legislative focus or priorities for the governor rose pointing out there are a number of things that we were bled to believe might get done by the end of may. D d do you believe do you understand wanna tell us what you think would be done? Well, I. We'll be able to pass a budget. I don't really we'll have Republican support given some provisions that have been discussed parts of this week at support, there's a desire to alter the way in which we get more federal dollars back on manage care operators. So those, that's I think we can work together on. We would like to work together on sports betting and other opportunities in gaming entertainment for the state, I think that could get done the infrastructure Bill something that's been worked on it, and hopefully gets done. But we are ready. Today's to get get some of these things accomplished, I think probably the biggest challenge is going to be the idea of, of recreational adult cannabis that seems to have lost some, some wind medal year. I guess, but, I guess states like New York, New jersey kind of fallen short on getting. Nassar's. We'll be some version of that or the whole thing's dead. Do you think? I'm not for it. I believe that. Medical science, tells me a lot for Smith tells me clearly indicates to me that it will advance the interest of our state. There are some people who, who believe that this is an issue that ought to be regulated attacks. I, I just did for with the way, it was introduced became problematic for the supporters of it as it was introduced a couple of Saturdays ago, it just the weight of what was included in editor, Dr I think, has become very problematic. Co-sponsor of the Bill was has been removed as co-sponsor because she was trying to potentially profit on the side from selling hot stock. Marijuana seminars. I mean, that's it's not a good start for legislation like this to feel like you have the support of the public in terms of what we're trying to do here. Good government in Illinois. We've seen a few examples of that over the years. I don't know the jails as you federal prisons are filled with Illinois politicians. Thought twice about out weird before you get was better when you were governor. So the what is the candidate on arrival Nabil? In springfield. I mean there there is widespread support. I just think Bill was introduced far too vicious for those even the supporter. So I think it's very problematic. And fact that last week the department of revenue receipts accessible point four billion dollars over to buff last year. Some of the financial pressure off the issue that happened. Because I keep hearing that reported, but there never is the how it happened part will, I believe what we saw here is when the federal government, seems the tax laws and limited you were your state, and local tax deductions would happen was people were unable to reduce their gross income, and therefore, they were happy to pay income taxes on a higher amount, and it was mostly nominated. People didn't factor it until tax day which was April will that will that stay like that or try to work around it. Which is our forecast came out with a study that as much of it will be built him. So they increased next year's revenues by over seven hundred million dollars via source a big believer Senator in projections. You know, I work in the, the media advertising business. So I know what projections actually mean. Shortfall for now. I mean, I guess. Yeah it. We have to do something. I think it's probably really realistic. No real solution. Dillard's problems is for us to grow this academy and have more receipt, by having more jobs. So that's where we are with the Democrats. They wanna raise tax rates. We, we want to reduce the tax burden will create a more vibrant economy and have natural river growth by putting people giving people to go back to work. I may ask you about this betting for a moment because that's the other thing is this show has two major interests, Senator. Yeah. I've known each other a long time. We've just the two of you to major. Well. Mean cabin. And Lauren about we talk about comes up a lot, and we got some guys, especially football season. We kind of interested, your guy, Senator you understand. I did. I just wanna know do we think we're gonna get sports gambling in Illinois. I do I do gaming is becoming an entertainment industry, a revenue generator job creator. I think we've got a shot in should look, we really trying to keep some of the gaming revenue, we're losing to other states in a little threat of losing to Wisconsin, and other, so I believe this is an attainment value and revenue producer. I said an industry itself, so we're, we're trying to work through reasonable measures, which will maximize the benefit taxpayers. Provide that opportunity to citizens more likely that, that goes would you say than marijuana? Okay, just trying to get an idea. I'm not trying to hold your feet to area on the show and in June to see if my predictions. Where they are now you know, because I know you don't want to take a position necessarily because you got your negotiating with your own people here, I get. But the at the same time we're just trying to get read the tea leaves here on Springfield and see what's got momentum. And what doesn't have quite honestly, the most important thing right now since we're all gonna get stone on oil, which were buying a video store, which doesn't have THC anyway. It's sold over the counter, and Kevin went and bought it, and I don't know what this is all about and pray for us, Senator. But I will. But the but so the marijuana things you know, there's a little steam out of that. But, but the gambling thing I mean you know, we're in right now as I'm looking at my watch. I'm pre- months away for the beginning of football. So getting into. Yeah. So I know I know it's going to happen.

Also that you give these coaches two weeks to prepare and this what you're gonna get. Remember something Bill Belgium came into this league. He made his bones as offensive coordinator. Remember, they shut down Kansas City in the first half of the AFC championship game. So Bella check blind Brian floors. Their game plan was outstanding against an inexperienced quarterback light Bill said it wasn't a masterpiece, but it was three three in the fourth quarter. So that was still some compelling drama and Tom Brady had one drive that void that was the go ahead. I hear what you're saying Frank this coach the two weeks to prepare. Let's go back last year. One year those coaches that to a pair of one of the most Bill Belichick that game had five hundred yards of its for each team at thousand yards for the game. Kevin Blackstone, also accurately predicted you didn't get the score Gami. You gotta bore Gami in my opinion. But was was this good football. Was this bad football. What did you see last night? No. It was not good football and certainly not compared to Super Bowl and we've seen recently. I mean, you talk about the game last year where Tom Brady threw for over five hundred yards and the year before that he threw a four hundred sixty six jars. I saw plenty of offense. And that's what we've come to expect in the NFL. And that's what we enjoy Nefail. So compared to that. No. But I will give Bill a little bit of credit because you did think that oh my goodness. All it's going to take is one play. And the Rams are you going to buy this thing up or possibly at one point even win the game that they have no business even being in? So it was bad football. But the better team. All right. Just for headlines. The hottest of the hot takes anybody willing to call this go all in call this. The worst Super Bowl of all time. Anybody no, not even low plants. Cuarto forget that you've been asked. Go to you defense. Yeah. It was tied in the fourth quarter. I I realized there was a lot of points. But there's a lot of great defense. A lot of great gamesmanship a lot of great masterminding out there. I mean, if you wasn't high scoring football, but it wasn't football. And again, the game was in doubt until the very end. Well, the biggest headline going into this game. I think if I could put words in your mouth because you guys used it last week Bella check versus McVeigh. It was too easy to spot like that before the game and the crowning of Sean McVay and the overflowing of his friends was also storyline Bill..
"bill brady" Discussed on StarTalk Radio
"Charles. Yes, did you ever in your life? Imagine that you would hear the phrase differentiate under the integral sign as the punchline in a sitcom. I think you're sooner or later is some talented comedy writer would figure it out. No, I wouldn't know rely. That's true. Let let me say this. Okay. That show clearly showed its southern California bias because very few people outside of Caltech call that fireman's trick. It's usually called lioness's rule almost everyone in the universe. Well on earth. Almost everyone uses it calls it lightness rule. But there it was like I'd use fine men's trick. Yeah. Gig humor. So the main characters of the big banks theories include two physicists, and Astro physicist. A neuroscientist a microbiologist and an aerospace engineer sees the main characters sounds like a party. Well, the character who is trying to prove his scientific worthiness in that clip as an aerospace engineer just character. He's played by Simon Helberg nabbed Simon for star talk interview when I was last out in LA, right? It was cool. And so I asked him about his own scientific roots to check it out. Jimmy KiKi memories as a kid science, teachers, you either loved or hated or or were you picked on where you bullied, well, those are separate not by science teachers. They always pretty nice to me. But I I'm some believing teachers occasionally, yes, that's true. I I had a good the science teachers were always the cool ones. Like, we had one that was like definitely a hippie and had a ponytail despite not having a lot of hair. And which is maybe that's the science thing. I don't know. It's the last gas. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And then he has a comb over. Comb over he had to be kinda he had to be cool so ponytail despite no I was impressed by science immediately. And then he let us do open book tests, which I thought was reactionary in the day. They always they were always the ones that did a little outside the box had another in seventh grade a really cool science teacher. So I was very interested in science right off the bat. Was he was talking about ponytails and KOMO Breyer's whole deal, which brings me to a. Scares me when you pull out your little free by five cars. I I realized that science hair. Thing. Science hair is something. Charles. Do you have we teach? Yes. Do you have any quirky teaching styles? I tests I give open internet tests. Really, what is the point of higher education today? It's so that you can be better than a search engine better than the app on your phone, otherwise who would want you to be part of their team. So get anybody to search engine or I'm not going to tell someone. Hey, tell me on a test regurgitate a fact like the diameter of a planet Jupiter. Okay. I'm not going to do that. Because you can just look that up. Instead, I'm going to tell you here's a planet. Here's a certain size of planet. Tell me what you think the center is made up. Tell me what you think how much of it is atmosphere and tell me why as ABRAHAM LINCOLN said never memorize anything. You can look up on the internet. Well, it's under percents. You create a TV show about. Got me if you create a TV show about science nerds, you probably should have some science geek street cred yourself. Okay. So not only had I interviewed Simon Helberg. I sat down with co creator the big bang theory Bill Brady, and I asked him about the origin of the show. That's check it out..
