Gov. Kristi Noem: The Value of Being Strategic in Politics

"Was something else you governed smartly and I know you took a couple of hits from conservatives of some issues, but the reality was you wanted to play smart politics. You wanted to make sure the legislation was perfect. And as a result of that, there is a long-term benefit, which is those laws are standing in place and Republicans have strong majorities in the great state of South Dakota now. Oh, absolutely. So for what we should be doing as governors is passing good strong bills that get stand up in court too, that can if they're because they're going to get challenged now. There's so many activist groups and so much money in the liberal side. They're going to challenge each piece of legislation in court. We got to make sure it's worded correctly that it's strong that it stands the test of a court challenge and that we don't set up for a failure of president that hurts us in the long run. So yes, being strategic and smart is incredibly important in this day and age.

Rail strike averted: Biden signs bill enforcing agreement

"President Biden has signed a bill to avert what he says would have been an economic disaster. The bill binds rail companies and workers to an agreement that avoids a freight rail strike. It helps our nation avoid what without a doubt would have been an economic catastrophe at a very bad time. And the calendar. The president acknowledges it was a difficult move after some rail unions rejected the deal since it does not boost paid sick leave. Given the potential economic costs of a strike. It was the right thing to do at the moment. And he will keep pushing for more paid sick leave, not just for rail workers, but all workers. I'm going to continue that fight till we succeed.

Maybe it's the water, maybe it's the air, maybe I don't know. Maybe the smog is they say that smog over there. I feel so sorry for normal people in California.

Senate votes to block railroad strike, impose contract rejected by unions

"The Senate has moved fast to head off a potentially catastrophic rail strike. The Senate passed a bill binding rail companies and workers to a proposed settlement reached in September, some unions involved then rejected the deal, leading to a potential strike next week, which the Biden administration and business leaders warrant could lead to massive job losses and pain around the holidays. The House voted yesterday to impose the agreement and the bill now goes to President Biden, who hours earlier, defended the settlement. I negotiated a contract, no one else could negotiate. With pay raises, but not more paid leave. The president says he'll keep pushing to get that for rail workers and every

Chris Reed: Having God in the Room

"When this was happening to you, all those years ago in 2011, how did you know that it was God and it was not some other spiritual being or beings? Because let me just say I am sympathetic. I understand the skepticism, I would first respond by saying that number one, in scripture, we see a lot of this. I mean, Jesus chose his first miracles turning water into wine. A lot of people would have called that and they did, in fact, they called that sorcery. That's like a magic trick. And, you know, this was the religious elite of the day said he does this by the power of bills above. And so the Bible is full of people who encountered God in ways that the skeptical or natural mind could not accept could not believe and I can completely understand why they are skeptical of it, but here's the main point, the fact that we know this happened in the New Testament, we see people having angelic encounters in the book of act, seeing a bright light knocking them down, blinding them some of tarsus we see agabus prophesying about world fame and speaking in tongues in healings and all of this. And for those that don't believe that it's for today, they said all just on one verse and first Corinthians that says when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part will be done away. So they are taking a very, very large leap to say that, which is perfect has come, is the canonization of scripture. And that's how they get away with that. They were basically saying, well, once the Bible is complete, gifts are four today. I've never understood that. I mean, when

House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions

"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

"All right, we do continue now. 34 minutes past the hour bob brand sitting in for Dennis here in Cleveland, Ohio. I want to trash my senator for a moment. 'cause he deserves it. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with his bill, rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the attack on the First Amendment. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the United States Senate as a whole, I think. Anybody who makes a pledge and a promise to constituents in return for their votes. Anybody who says he believes in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Anybody who says I will govern and I will make votes in the United States Senate along those beliefs. Who then turns around and flips it upside down 180° because his kid tells him he's gay. If someone that has no business being in government, thankfully rob Portman is on his way out of government. He chose not to run for reelection, JD Vance is going to be our next senator in his seat. And I look forward to much, much better from JD Vance and I got from rob Portman. Rob Portman proved to be selfish. He put his families, concern above that of the constitution, and while I understand that as a father, I do. He didn't take an oath to his son, he took an oath to uphold the constitution. And the constitution includes the Bill of Rights, it includes the First Amendment that are going to be shredded.

The Death of Free Speech

"So this passage yesterday in the Senate of the respect for marriage act. Which again is just completely duplicitously and deceptively named. It does not respect marriage. And in fact, trash's marriage, along with trashing and most importantly, the constitution, that's what a trash is. The constitution on the First Amendment. I want to give you some of the language from the alliance defending freedom in response to this passage yesterday. Ryan bangert is the senior vice president of strategic initiatives. Speaking of the respect for marriage act, this is what he said. This dangerously cynical and completely unnecessary Bill is a direct attack on the First Amendment. It does nothing to change the legal status of same sex marriage anywhere. That's exactly what I said. But it undermines religious freedom everywhere. And exposes Americans throughout the country to predatory lawsuits by activists seeking to use the threat of litigation to silence debate and exclude people of faith from the public square. Today, the Senate has chosen to disregard legitimate concerns about the undeniable harms of this bill. If the Senate truly cared about protecting religious freedom, it would have included comprehensive amendments proposed by senators Lee, Rubio and Langford. And by the way, just FYI as an aside, that's what they took up yesterday was the amendments. Nobody was trying to undo. Same sex marriage protections. No one. The amendments were solely to protect people from being railroaded into civil suits or even criminal suits or criminal prosecution for not participating in something they may have a religious or a conscience objection of.

Respect for Marriage Act Destroys Key Constitutional Provisions

"Many Americans, millions of Americans. Are too stupid to look into what is going on. What Congress is passing, what it means to the constitution to your rights as granted to you by our founding fathers. Actually, as granted to us by God, our rights come from God that they were, they were codified. They were noted, they were written. They were documented by our founding fathers. And the respect for marriage act absolutely inappropriately and inaccurately named. Is going to tear apart the First Amendment to the constitution of the United States quite literally on two of the 5 provisions protections in the First Amendment. What are the protections of the First Amendment, the very first one, of course, is freedom of religion. Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion. Nor prohibit the free exercise thereof. It's the first protection in the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights which leads the constitution. It protects our freedom of religion, it protects our freedom of speech, it protects our freedom of the press, it protects our right to petition the government for the redress of grievances, it protects our right to assemble in whatever capacity we need to presumably peacefully, 5 provisions and at least two of them are completely torn asunder by the passage of the inappropriately named respect for marriage act.

"What does this mean? We always tell people elections have consequences, but to see so many Republican senators join in all this, are we seeing a shift, a culture shift within the Republican Party? I think we are seeing somewhat of a culture shift there, but it would also tell you that if Republicans were in control of the Senate and we were actually in the majority in the Senate, this bill would have never come up. Mitch McConnell, for instance, he voted against this bill. So this would not have been a bill that would have come to the floor. If Republicans were in control of the Senate.

"Players better minutes or more minutes is enough of a higher ceiling for them. I guess I'm slightly not even worried, but if I've had a couple of people around the league talking about a potential Golden State Phoenix matchup, say to me, my worry for the sun's in that matchup is I don't know if there is versatile as some other teams in terms of being able to play multiple styles against teams that can shape shift the way the warriors can by going with draymond center. I'm not even convinced of that. The reason why I have them so high on my pressure rankings is a Chris Paul is not going to have very many more chances to win the title and he's one of the best players of all time. We can talk about his postseason record if you want. I actually think I actually think it's crunch time resume is other than the 2014 meltdown between the thunder and the clippers where he blew game 5 for the clippers on the road. I think his crunch time record both in the playoffs and in the regular season. Again, in the playoffs and in the regular season is basically unimpeachable other than 15. 2015s bad. 2015. You blew a 26 point lead at home. Let's talk about it. That's bad. He won a series with a game 7 buzzer beater in the previous round. He won. I'm just saying, if you're the point God, he was and he was hurt. He hurt his hamstring and missed, I believe the first two games of that clippers series and of the rocket series rather. He played for both teams, so it's screwing up my memory. I'm just saying, you can't skip over it. What we didn't skip over it then. 2014 was bad. And then 2018, he got hurt. In 2016, he was her last year he was hurt like three separate times in the playoffs. But this is why, you know, when people are like, oh, the Paul Westbrook trade, you know, because at that point, I didn't think that was a terrible trade for Houston because I thought Chris Paul couldn't stay in the floor for 8 straight months. That was, that was the sample size we had. Then he started eating plants. Did the plant based diet change his career? I'm with you on the pressure thing. I think, you know, especially because they came so close last year and we talked about that series when you're on my pod. Like, man, it's like three plays go differently. They win the title. And I don't know, I think it's lined up for them. I think they have the Johnson and bridges are both better. Johnson, to me, has definitely gone up a level. There's no question. I actually, if you bet against the sons in a random game and Johnson has, I'm just scared every time he has it. The 8 and things weird 'cause it does seem like they were sniffing around trying to trade him. They didn't extend him. I don't know how that plays out in the playoffs, but I like their team. I think they're better than we're last year. Well, he's going to be the key if and when they face the warriors, they're going to need him to have a monster series. And actually I think this stretch without Booker and Paul has been good for him because he's shooting more. He's busting out his jump shot, which he hasn't used much at all this season taking a lot of long tunes. He's taking some threes, and he's shooting from the post without any hesitation, and we've seen when they played the warriors that he's going to get all sorts of chances to feast against smaller guys. He's going to have to beat up knight doesn't beat anybody up, but he's going to have to try to punish dream on just because of his height, advantage, and his rebounding advantage. And teed up for them, you know, looming over all of this, whatever Western Conference seem you want to talk about. And Utah is next on my pressure rankings is the clippers and the nuggets are just waiting there to be optimized again to be healthy again and the assumption my assumption is neither team will be at their best, even if they get people returning this year until next year. And they may walk into next year with all due respect to Phoenix as one and two in the west, if those teams are fully healthy. The west is going to look a lot different next year. The sun's got very close last year, CP is 36 or 35 or whatever he is with a history of injuries in the playoffs. Maybe he got his injury over with now and he's going to go into the playoffs healthy. That would be ideal. But they are teed up to win and they are just awesome. And it's funny you mentioned cam Johnson because I wrote about cam Johnson and my Friday column like two months ago a month and a half ago. And it was a like. It was a positive item about how he was just on fire. He had made multiple threes and some crazy amount of consecutive games. But I had a line in there about on this Phoenix team with Chris Paul and Devin Booker. He's always gonna be kind of a three and D guy with a little like pump and go oomph. And I got a call from someone, let's say close to the team saying, I know that was meant to be a positive item. You're underselling cam Johnson. He's gonna make a leap. He's gonna do more stuff off the dribble and from the mid range. He's gonna score more than you think. You watch. And I was like, all right, I guess I'll watch. And like his last month, when he scores 28 a game now, it's not a surprise. He has really made a meaningful, meaningful leap. I think this team is just awesome and you only get so many chances when you're awesome when the league breaks breaks right for you. Windows closed fast. I think.

"Now, 45% on twos, and he's taken a lot of twos, half his shots are twos. Some of those shots feel forced to me and I'm okay with enforcing shots right now, particularly when Steph is on the bench because you just gotta become clay. I gotta get as much, I gotta get you as close to clay as I can get you before the game's really matter. And I just think draymond is the engine of the team on both ends of the floor. And if he's healthy, they're awesome. And if he's not healthy, they have no chance to win the title. And so I'm just gonna wait and see all the reports I've gotten privately and publicly have all been good. And so I'm just sort of assuming that he comes back and unlocks everything that makes them special, eases the burden on Stephan clay to your point on pool, he's been a wildly up and down, but he's good, and he's a force offensively. I actually think when draymond comes back, we're going to see a little more of Steph pool and clay altogether to see if that can survive defensively with Wiggins and draymond or Porter and draymond, whoever's at the four and the 5 were draymond and luni even. I think we'll see a little bit of that to see how powerful it can be offensively, but I still, I think clay has exceeded my expectations personally. I don't know what else Steve is supposed to do. Now what I think Steve Kerr has the gravitas to if he has to bench clay Thompson in the fourth quarter of a game, I think he'll do it. I'm not worried that I might just be I'm often guilty of being slow to worry because I've seen so many people overreact so quickly to small trends. So I've just kind of been like, eh, they lost they lost they lost three months. I'm not worried yet, maybe I'm too late. The exercise is the pressure rankings. Yes. And we've seen this before in different situations with different players and different teams. By the way, just for the record, I love clay. I really do. But this is not like, you know, I'm a huge fan. Which is why what happened if you went to a bar and you're talking basketball back when you could get bad. And someone was like, I really hate Klay Thompson. That would be like, no, I would be like, I need to have a 45 minute conversation. Just with you, are you a Cavs fan? Like, I just don't understand how it's possible. I think what made him special for me other than just Steve was one of the best shooters I've ever seen was just how he could defend everybody. You know, and he really was like everyone talked about draymond's defense, but I always thought I was always so impressed by clay's ability to guard small guys and big guys, which I think is, you know, if you're looking at the Kauai pippin 2012 range LeBron, Ben Simmons even last year before he had the meltdown in the playoffs, but these guys that can guard all types of guys. I think that's the last piece that I thought clay could do that. I don't think he could do that anymore. And watching them in person, I guess they're best defender in those situations would be Wiggins, but Wiggins has been in a tailspin. You know, the last month or so. And I just, that team seemed really disjointed to me and there's not a lot of time left to figure it out. And the reason I think from a pressure standpoint with clay is like when you have the gravitas and the legacy and you're coming in with the reputation and people think they know who you are, I think if it's not happening in the playoffs, it almost feels worse because it's like, oh man, I thought we were going to be able to count on clay once we got to the playoffs and he can't get it going and now it's like, oh, he's sitting out and I just we know how this goes. We know what the talking points are going to be. So I could see the pressure building on it. Maybe one of the reasons I'm not worried is you say that is there's all this talk about Brooklyn drawing out of time. Philadelphia is running out of time to get their chemistry. I just don't think Golden State needs any time. Those three guys have played a gazillion big games together. I just don't think they need any time, so maybe that's one of the reasons that I'm being potentially naive. I still really like this team, but now I'm going to transition to my list because number two on my list number two on my list dovetails with the warriors and it's Chris Paul slash the Phoenix Suns who are by far the best team in the league record wise they're going to be the number one overall see it. It's not going to be close. They're 51 and 13, despite missing both Booker and Paul recently lost in Milwaukee. Put up, they got the cam Johnson buzzer beater over the Knicks on Friday, put up a good fight in Milwaukee against basically the full, almost the full bucks. I obviously kind of think I'm playing and Lopez isn't playing. You know, I think my worry about this team last year, not worry, but the reason why I didn't pick them to make the finals last year was and this is a classic Chris Paul team worry was I just, I think they're playing at their ceiling in the regular season. I'm not sure they have another gear because they're just so damn good already. They maximize every possession. Chris Paul maximizes every second he's on the floor. I've kicked that because they're sealing is so awesome that they don't need a higher ceiling. Their ceiling is amazing. They don't need a higher ceiling..

"What's your number two? All right, my number two is James Harden who both you and I have talked about a million times and I'm excited because Hardin is number one on my pressure rankings. Hardin alone, not the sixers, not Doc Rivers, although I know you want, I know you're not gonna be able to resist three one blown lead jokes, it's hard. I think stock wanna title, you know? I mean, we could talk about some of the failures. And there's been many of them. But at least he has the title hardens done Jack. You know, and you and I have both talked about it, and all kinds of different forms about, that's gonna end up being his legacy. This great player who, for what his talent was kind of stunk in the playoffs and had a bunch of no shows over and over again, repeatedly year after year where you watch them and you said, this guy just isn't as good in the playoffs as he is in the regular season. And at some point that matters and when we're talking about guys, you know, 20, 30 years from now, that's the default. George gervin, one of the great scorers, you know, and certainly one of the best scorers I've seen in person, and I had him, I think, 33 when I did my book. One of the best two guards ever. But it really for him came down to that 79 bullet series and they blew a three one lead and he got outputted by Bobby dandridge and game 7 and that was his best chance. Heart has had like 5 of those. And heart attack games that I went to when he completely checked out and must win games for his team. I was at that clippers rockets game in 2015. When they took him out and he put tau over his head and the game was over and then the Josh Smith Corey brunner brewer tsunami happened all of a sudden they were skating. That's a top 5 in my NBA career in my career working around the NBA. That's a top 5. I wish I was at that game game. I just like, I can't imagine what that game was like in terms of clipper fan reactions, Houston, even the rockets were like, is this happening? Like, what the hell is going on? We're gonna win this game. This is crazy. It was the craziest non salt that game I've ever been to. And the crowd immediately sensed it and all the skeletons came up and meanwhile hardens on the bench. She wasn't moving for half the quarter. And then when the comeback was really and all of a sudden he was standing up, but he was done. He'd checked out and he stunk. And I have a lot of questions about him as a playoff guy that I guess we're going to have answered. The difference this time is he's playing with somebody who's actually better than him. And who's more dominant than him and is more unstoppable than him. And he can ride and beat and maybe that's the answer. Maybe he has to ride the coattails of a better player to get over whatever weird playoff thing he has. Three years ago on your podcast, I in both annoyed you and myself for making a comparison that I wish I wish that I had I had written like a giant column about it. It was great. It was one of your best ones ever. That James Harden is guard, Karl Malone. Right. That's great. Perfect. And Karl Malone's numbers, you look at Karl Malone's numbers. If you just took his name off of the numbers, you'd be like, oh, this is one of the 5 best players in NBA history. Like they're insane. And then you're like, oh, it's call them alone. Oh, he's like the 21st best player, 18th best player, whatever it is in NBA history. No one sits around and talks about Karl Malone. He's no one. There's no Karl Malone bar room debate outside of Salt Lake City with people drinking the fake 2% alcohol beer, having a discussion about Malone's side. No one caramel on his litter. This is the first time caramel on his come up in my house. In the year and a half, I lived here. No one talks about Karl Malone. That's what James Harden is going to be in 20 years when we're all sitting around talking about basketball from this year. We're going to talk about LeBron and Kobe, the warriors, Yanis, embiid, Lucas, probably going to have a couple titles, jokic, and it's like, oh yeah, Hardin's has more points than all of them. That's weird. Remember James Harden, like that was, yeah, he was two 11 and a bunch of big playoff games. That was a whole thing. Remember the game we had 12 turnovers and people are like, does he have a concussion? What's going on? Or if I say to you? Yeah, remember that game he went too far 11 in the playoff game and you'd be like, which one? Which one there were three? Three. And they're old. And they're all like pivotal games. The last one was game four of the Lakers rocket series in the bubble with the Lakers leading to one and you laughed at me laughed at me before that series when I said, I think the rockets have a real chance to win this series, and even I went further, I said, if those two guards could ever get their shit together, I actually think the rocket should win this series. And what happened? They won game one and crapped the bed four games in a row. And weirdly hardened numbers from that series are good. 29 points a game on 50% shooting, and it's like, I just don't remember, I just remember them melting down again and probably like a lot of those points, if you look at Hardin's playoff track, or you probably had a great fourth quarter when the rockets were down 25 in one of those games, that's just how it's been for him. You quit on the rockets, fine. They were not trending well. They were not training well because you made them trade Chris Paul for Russell Westbrook. That was a disaster. And by the way, they gave up two first round picks in the same trade. Thanks, James, for that out the door. Quit on Brooklyn. Fine. There are justifiable reasons for being upset about the Brooklyn. Quit on Brooklyn, wow, pretending he wasn't quitting on Brooklyn and refusing to actually make it seem like he was while he was quitting on Brooklyn. And now you're where you want to be. Team number whatever this is now with an MVP all time level center on your team. The early returns suggest this team is, I don't know what you think, but like I've seen every minute they've played together. There are absolutely good enough to win the championship as is. No doubt about it, they have a championship caliber team. This is it. This is put up or shut up if it's the second round of the playoffs and you're playing the heat and you go two of 11 with 6 turnovers in game 5 and the heat take a three two lead and go on. I can't anymore. This is it. Do it now, get to the finals now. His biggest moments in his playoff career are the shot to beat the spurs ten years ago when there was no pressure on James Harden who was all gravy. That fourth quarter was great. Young up and coming team. And blocking Lou dort in game 7 of a first round playoff series in the bubble against the thunder in a series that really just no one cares about it. Remember, that's it. Everything else is like, oh, he had 35 points. Oh, they were down three O. This is it. It's put up our shut up now. Well, listen, I think it's a new James Harden, because you even think about since he showed up at Philly, they have that huge gaming against Miami on Saturday night. And you think in the old days, maybe hard and skips this game and says it's hamstring maintenance or something. But new James Harden, and this guy's gonna go into Miami, toe to toe. This is a team they have to beat. He's gonna show them, oh no, no, he's skipped the game. My bad. Well, look,.

"To maybe something better. Yes, exactly. And he says something that's critically important and that's a big reason why all these people were wanting to come and hear him is because he way before Freud developed this idea of the subconscious. He was one of the early early pioneers in the subconscious. And he says, look, I can't prove it, but I'm pretty sure that this desire to move towards some new form of regeneration of the human spirit comes to us from the subconscious. If this is a natural thing or if it's a spiritual thing, I don't know. But you know what? If it's a spiritual thing, it's better. But it may just be natural. We don't know. We don't know what this God is. We don't even know if this is a natural process. That's why he says, this is all agnostic. We are all agnostics, because nobody gets to go behind that screen of that veil into the subconscious to see how it works. We really, those really does experiences we have our fleeting, they're hard to explain. They're deeply personal. They're only understood by the individual. They're highly difficult to articulate. These are the kinds of things that really cause us to say, you know, if you want to go figure out what God is good luck, we don't know. And so in that sense, all agnostics. Yeah. I mean, how do you describe a physical experience with language? I mean, language is just a metaphor for something that is happening viscerally inside of us. And that can be really, really difficult, but we can see that there's some line or, you know, like I said earlier, some kind of vain through it all. And he gives it a voice. And so let's go to the next step where Bill W one of the founders of 12 step group finds this work. And starts to create something. Exactly. And so he was visited by his friend Emmy Thatcher and they call this the conversation around the dining room table or whatever the kitchen table. The kitchen table conversation. And Thatcher talks about the Oxford group, and he talks about this book, the varieties of religious experience against Bill W a copy. And then Bill W goes back into the clinker. He goes back into the town San hospital, which is just like drunk, you know, sort of dry out, you know, rehab, where they're trying all kinds of sort of primitive procedures. The therapies. And he has sort of an experience. And then he begins to read the book and the book explains what happened to him. So that's where the idea gets germinated where the varieties of religious experience is married to his experience with the Oxford group and he begins to write about begins to write the big book a couple of years later. So you start to write your book and you walk through the 12 steps with this foundation of his work, not Bill W, William James. And you start to start to kind of pull apart from his work to look through the 12 steps. I guess that's what I'm trying to say. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. It's kind of hard to explain. So what I did is I outlined the entire 450 pages of varieties twice. And then I outlined the big book fourth edition. And the 12 and 12 and as Bill sees it. And what I did is I just kept on looking for the patterns, right? And I guess you could pass them together, I guess is what you articulated earlier on. I mesh them together. And I showed how there's a lot of uncanny similarities, not just in the writings of Bill Wilson and the other people who contributed to the right. Right. And Akron Ohio. But many of the stories in the back have without knowing it, right? I like your analogy to sort of these myths, right? A lot of people are articulated, precisely what William James was saying without knowing it. And I put together these a lot of this in terms of in the context of 12 steps. And so the book is outlined in the 12 steps of the 12 step movement. And I think the book is also perfectly adequate for people in Al anon and adult children, alcoholics, ACO, and koda, because I think that the soul sickness is identical. Right. And I think your work opens this up because it takes it out of the context of one religion, but into this is our experience, our personal experience, that this is something that only we can do. I don't know if that makes sense. Because like you said earlier, we're the only ones that know it because it's personal to us. Yes, right. Exactly. And so, yeah, there's 5 sort of marks of this. And you sort of describes it as a personal experience. He also describes it as sort of a mystical experience where that higher power of meets us in the gutter, the higher power meets us in the gutter. And he said, you know, God is not to be believed. God is not to be defined. This God is to be used. We have this God have higher power have a business with each other. And I love it. On the retail level, not on the wholesale level. So is there something out there that responds to our personal needs? You better down believe it. And I'm not telling you this because it happened to me. I'm telling you this because it's been happening for 3000 years. And we've been writing the damn thing down for 3000 years. And by the way, it works. You know, this is a guy who was he also is the founder of American practice. We do it because it works and that's why I'm here today talking to you about this. This book in this series of lecture I gave back in 1902 at Edinburgh, it works. And it's been working for 3000 years. And I'm trying to explain to you how it works and why it works. And the ins and outs of what I think is a subconscious that we have never talked about before. And so you're exactly right. And so in a lot of the what I just said to you is really a lot of the foundation of what the 12 steps are all about. Yeah, definitely. And you move through it. One of the things I like in 12 step, it's this surrender, right? You let go, you give it to something bigger than yourself, right? So in a way, that's a change in your thinking in the world. If you look at mindfulness or radical acceptance or anything like that, it's like giving it up. Surrendering to it. All the way through that process all the way to when you look at the end of the 12 steps service and like what you say being decent in an indecent world, right? Learning to do do that. And here's the formula. Exactly, exactly. And so what he's very clear about is that this is something that is almost impossible to explain. It's very brief. And it's ephemeral. And yet we had there is a powerful sense of knowing that this happened. And he has a beautiful analogy he says, this is like looking down on the beach from a permanent tree. So these experiences that we have are reaching out for a higher power as our lower self is falling to pieces. I love that. Because my lover self was falling to pieces. Let me tell you. Firepower as our lower self is falling to pieces. We only seem to have a grasp of that from a distance. I really like that, because that is very much what happened to me. But I just sort of fell apart and I needed to pick up my life. You know, I love that phrase. We're not falling apart. But when we think we're falling apart, we're actually falling together. And I think that's really the essence of what he's talking about is we jump onto a higher better self, what our lower self is falling to pieces. That's really the essence of.

"Because it involved, you know, she was a mathematic and she sold a child to get it to get drugs. I mean, she just did one thing after another that just made you go, oh my gosh. And she, at the end of it, most of the time, people would clap and say, thank you. And then people would raise their hand and say, hey, this is how I identify with your story. This is how I did the same thing. You know what I mean? But we were all just for a moment. Silent. And this poor gal is standing in front of a room of 40, 50 people just looking at her. And from the back of the room, there was this old lady. She was, this was back and this was in Canaan, Connecticut, and she was an heiress. And she literally, like, smoked one cigarette after another. She would just come in like, you know, these beautiful clothes, you know? But she was very wise. She had been in the program literally since Bill W founded it. Okay? So she was one of the very first members of this 12 step group. And this woman got finished. There's dead silence in the room. And from the back of the room, you hear this. The word of the lord. And all of the liturgically in mind of people in the room immediately responded, thanks be to God. And in that moment, you feel this evaporation of the shame. Yeah. Yep, right. You know, and it was so and that happens time and time again in those meetings. And I think this is what you're trying to say, which is you can not heal shame in isolation. Isolation can only amplify shame. The only way out is if you tell the story. Of your shame journey, if you will. Right. Yeah. I think we're finding we run these groups in our practice and everything we're doing in our practice is really kind of moving in that direction because we've seen the pace and the depth with which people find healing and recommissioning, I think, and creativity. In the context of these communities in which the intention is for people to tell their stories more and more truly. And of course, you know, at first.

"A third string quarterback, I mean, it's amazing that they've even won a game. I think they won the first game of the year, was that what they did? They beat a Jacksonville. When they played Jacksonville to beat Jacksonville I don't remember. First game of the year, the Texans got 37 points to 21. Taylor was playing that game. Taylor retailer. Taylor got hurt the second game of the season and their collapse has gone ever since they scored 37, 21 points, and they went to 9 zero the collapse. 5 points, three points. Should be an easy win for us. We're going to win. I think we're going to put this one on this one behind this. But after that gets a lot worse, though, we go ravens that's going to be a tough season, you know, all the way through. You know? So I know, Scottie, we gotta hang in there, let's hope the dolphins do turn this thing around and we can look forward to getting a new coaching staff here soon and a new GM. And by the way, we got to touch this before we close up. Any trades before the end, I mean, there was a blockbuster trade done today. Oh yeah, von Miller. Miller. But you went to the rams for two 1022 draft picks. I think it was a second round. Yeah. Yeah. It is my hope that mister Steven Ross has put a moratorium or an approval process on any trades. Because the plan is already in action to replace the front office. And so you don't want the current front office damaging the future front office. Which isn't to say that if something makes sense, you don't pull the trigger. In the end, no, I don't think we're going to do any trades. I think if there is a trade, it will be it'll be Parker. Because he's very easily the highest asset. If people are out there and they're offering something crazy for it, I think there's a team. There's a team called Atlanta that makes a lot of sense for them to pull the so if I'm looking I'm looking at Atlanta, but that's about it. Yeah. Well, I just, you know, even if we got a gold mine in picks for him, which is not going to happen. This front office has already proven that they can't make a pick to save their families lives. So I don't want the picks made by grier or anybody.

"The angles. Starting really midway through that brooklyn series with him. It was always like he was always going forward. Always want him going forward forward forward and they did something midway through that brooklyn series that they kept going the rest of the phoenix series of these forty five degree angle things to the basket ray on the left side of the right side where either he faced up or he tried to really back the guy down because it was almost like he realized that thing that we had been seeing for a few years. Back your guy and then you roll into the lane with your little jump hook or you do a drop. Step your seven feet tall. You have longer arms. Nobody else in your better athlete than anybody else. And you're just going to be able to get to the rim however you want and worst case scenario four. Put jump book. I do feel like the light. Bulb went off for him. And we've seen it happen. We've seen it happen to other great players even like two thousand sixteen whiskey when he just blowtorch the entire western conference heading into that final so it was like he figured it out the game. Slow down for him. He really started figure out that foul line stuff and you could just see him. Go up a level. I really feel like that happened with us. And i don't think he gets enough. Credit for durant was out of his mind in game five game seven and yannis went toe to toe with them. He really did in. Durant is one of the best ten pairs ever so the fact that people are just dismissing this. And they're like oh brooklyn. Brooklyn's got any brooklyn soap opera. Brooklyn's all my shoulder. I mean philly in brooklyn we have to soap operas. That you could be showing in the mornings on cbs. I just feel like the soap. Opera element to the brooklyn. Season has to be factored in if you're calling them the favorite. We haven't seen them have a normal month in a year and a half two years dating back to the last coach. Do you think when sean marks goes to bed at night benicio just watch maybe watches the great british bake off to to have it to just cool down from the day goes into bed at midnight. Head hits the pillow. Can't sleep just all this stuff. Corregan get vaccinated. And what's james up to off the floor cranked. You ever do you ever think. He thinks himself man. It was so fun when we were like a frisky. Forty two win team kenny. Atkinson was like get up at four in the morning riding the ride. The exercise bike diagramming plays for the angelo. Russell like jared. Allen was building computers and we didn't know what he was going to be in land. That was so fun. Bic yeah we're winning and we're the favorites plan. Do you ever think an honest moment. You think man. That was a that was a lot of fun. Well it's like the brad stevens mid two thousand ten celtics right. That was more fun team than the team. And eventually coach. That was completely loaded. Had five potential all stars. I think with brooklyn. I think sean marks wakes up in the morning. I don't know what you do in the morning but some people they wake up and they made you look at their phone to see what they missed. Yes i'm more of a take my morning. P i'll take a vitamin c. I'll put my glasses a walk downstairs. I'll make the coffee. And then i'll look. I'll look at my phone. I'll ease into it. I think sean marks is definitely a i wake up. I look at the phone with a pit in my stomach coping. Nothing's happened over the last seven hours since i fell asleep. I think that's that job From everything. I've heard. I'm sure you've heard the same stuff i- cartons the leader that team. Where they. I think people think k. d. is but i think the personality of harden is kind of the driving force and i think it hurt them last year and that's one of the reasons i think they can survive kyri thing. They have patty mills on their team. You know it's like oh my god we're the carre they'll be fine. They're going to be really good. But the question is is issues going to be the soap opera for nine more months. And if it is. What are the ramifications. I absolutely think they can win it without kyrie i don't i don't they're like clear. Favorites is they are with him. But like you put hardin durant may be the best player in is number one for you. Currently in the nba or did janas surpass him. Or is it still lebron for you know. It doesn't really matter. It's one eight when durant jaanus. I think regular season durant. I thought he didn't really play that hard defensively last season i think even he might admit that i think is a better reliable to a guy. One eight one b. I think we'll find out this year. I think when we go to the eastern conference finals if hopefully they can at least have to equal squads will find out. It'll be the title who the best player in. The league is lebron brian. It's here nineteen like if you're saying lebron's the best part in the league you're that's a past performance thing you're not actually watching. He might have been on course for. Mvp lesser before. He got injured but that was a media narrative thing. I don't think people really feel like he's the best two way player in the league last year. I think you gotta factor in like all the things you can do as a player and all the way you know the showing up night after night on both ends. The tony set. I don't know. I don't i think he's one of the best ten players i wouldn't say he's in the top two. I think that'd be crazy to think he's still like the honest arendt level. I see it. You said problem solving. That's that's what he's got above these guys still is. He can look at the defense look at his team at figure out by possession how to beat you with sort of an unmatched combination of iq size vision ability to make every pass on the floor. We'll we'll see is better at that than harden. I do think he's a better passer. I think heart is a great and underrated pass. Lebron is a better playmaker passer than heart. It's close. But and i think he can do it for more varied angles. Maybe hardened ken out of the post and stuff like they were real. There was some real statistical kind of subtle atrophy with the browns game last year right. I mean he doesn't get to the free throw line like he like he used to. I don't think he's nearly as good of a three point shooters people seem to think he is and you know i think he's one of the best parts in the league but i think durant jaanus if i'm trying to win title lake could put it this way. Could he have done. What durant it on that brooklyn team last year. I don't think so in that in that when everybody got hurt could he have carried them the way durant did i don't think so. Could he have done what. Yana stayed in those last tuna friends. I don't think so what. Here's something amazing discover matches all the.

Yes you mentioned you can see it. Hold on hold on hold on. Did he say continue. Nigel continue can see it when people come into the dugout again and it is paro who is leading the fun. You can see. It bringing him back. Maybe a ball player. It doesn't matter but the rest of it does matter does matter we'll see how it plays out but it appears thank you kevin. Why is it always exchanges. I feel like i'm gonna say. I thought you said you all right spider. Did you need a drink to the association was the tony you mentioned a moment ago. The clippers led by playoff repea- with forty one points stave off elimination. They beat the suns once. Sixteen one zero two. Yeah i got a note from wilbon that i read this morning. Did you see you see thought they would be. Phoenix should win. They should win. They should have won last night. The other team doesn't have its best player that you should win in the playoffs that way if they don't win it's really a colossal failure if they would lose this series after being up three one and having home field loss that would be it would be. It would be the the sort of code chris. Paul would say. Why would i trust chris. Paul ever in a playoff situation okay. What else we'll go back to To my home turf to wimbledon and probably the biggest win for an american tennis player american male tennis player and just about twenty years. Frances tiafoe beets Number three seeds. It's poss- yes. He grew up in. Hi it's phil local story. Yeah but beats the number world four seed and the number three seed in the tournament sits boss in of the french yes. He took off joke of it in the finals. The french a great player and as tiafoe said after the match this guy. Especially he's going to do a lot of great things when a ton of grand slams then he broken respondents said but not today and it really is a great moment for ot ofo who is promising. A player now. He's done well on grass this year. He did The quarterfinals at queens and won the nottingham which also tournament so could he's playing well and also nice win for sloan stevens who took out a two time champ kavita so it was a nice day overall for you yanks okay. What else for more. Check out nigel's tennis. More importantly have them ever slighted you at the city open. No no they have not. They have not in fact stations with both of them and they're both very lovely. I've always enjoyed chatting with them. Yes and you can check out. Courtside the us open podcast at your leisure to the ncw. Mr tony and they are going to now recognize. This thing called nil which doesn't mean zero. Its name this. Yes and now we're going to allow college players to profit off these which could be from a variety of different ways. This is an anticipate well. This is following the supreme court ruling the other day that sort of opened things up and this is a day ahead of when eight states will formerly legalize this so this appears to be the nc. Double a. recognizing the reality of this new world for them and saying well we've got to get on board with otherwise the world will pass us by the world has passed them by the ncaa will cease to exist in a short amount of time A little bit longer than mark amherst will have the job as the head of the ncaa. He's failed person They went to court and they lost. They got beaten nine. Nothing in the supreme court and bread. Cavanaugh who is the one justice on the court who sort of his closest to athletics. Because he's he's a coach. His review was scathing. Just basically said are you kidding. Are you kidding. You've got to let these people make money got. Let the kids now. I me personally. I don't think that colleges have to or should go into the business of directly paying athletes. I don't think they do not for a while. Because i think athletes will be so happy to be able to cash in on their name. Their image in their likeness. But maybe down the road that that's what's going to happen but at that point at that point then there's no there's no point in like even offering an education you're just your minor leagues the pros and you're the pros. It will be interesting to see what it does to the competitive balance. Because i think it there are creative. Avenues that be opened up to exploit advantages and it becomes. California passed this law year ago. That's about to go into effect california's the ncaa understood that california would recruit athletes and give the money. No other state would have now. All states are going to do it so for the ncaa to say. We recognize that the the ncaa was just flattened by a bus. That's what so so. What percentage of college football and basketball fans if they listed the top five things that appeal to them about the game would list amateurism as one of them none zero wrestling. So i'm not sure that it matters and they'll be they'll be happy to pay these kids directly the mud up but my concern is more one of competitive balance like to schools ultimately lose football programs like they've lost other non revenue generating programs because they just can't compete certainly so awesome but but the television television money for the next years will be unbelievably high until it settles when it settles. I think will happen. Is the top forty. Football playing schools in the country will form their own. Ncaa right and they will have a forty team playoff and they will sign deals where you go. Oh my god. This is john wall money for it. It just be amazing higher than anything ever in your life. so what else. We have one final story. Mr tony going to take you to pico rivera which is just outside of just just outside of los angeles where forty cows four zero cows. Where on death. row waiting to go into a slaughterhouse. When all of a sudden they decided to make a break ford forty cows break loose running through the city. Thirty eight were pretty much immediately. Caught this city. Are you talking about the city.

Nine hundred five a believe it was up in newport rhode island. Yeah so yeah so had tiger. Not one that maybe. The arc of tigers career is different though what tigers able to say is. I won three juniors. And i won three. M's in nobody ever beat me. I'm six and on like michael jordan finals. Nobody ever beat me buddy. Marucci came closest. So this is a name that michael knows and now michael you find out. We're playing with him. And your response immediately go to the driving range because otherwise the The the the sort of has taken a different turn. Originally we were planning to play with the socialite and he was not going to make up for that day. And you don't know what type of field this is gonna be. Is it going to be sort of hidden. Giggling card it going to be a match within the four-ball and i'm sure it was different for every group out there for media because this is a you know once a year once in a decade and for me personally i went to penn. He is a philly legend and for us every time that we've taken a big father son trip every time my pen. Golf team was hosted for a special day. You sort of look out the corner your eye. I need see mr marucci having lunch at clubs or you know greenish seminal and the twilight and you see him at the far corner of the range with his disciples as he's working on on controlling a shot into the wind. So were you nervous. Yes i was nervous but he was so pleasant to play with and played well and he was just so yes. I played totally fine. Considering i played for a very short course but he was very supportive of all of our games and was just happy to be in the of forego which is a reminder about golf. You can play cross ability as long as you're playing from appropriate tease for you and your moving he bangs it for a guy has a so long he hits it really long. What do you mean a guy. His age i mean he was. He's tigers ish age. No he was in his late sixties. Oh okay he's inside six and he'd just crushed taught tigers as we get to normally considered the second hole for us. It's the eleventh. It is a short par for risk reward. A little bit of a capable as you go round the bend and its drive alive sort of charted my decline as when i was younger man. I didn't even look at the yardage bombs straight onto the green and then. There's one time maybe i was playing a different t. I'm playing with alan. I think roasted drive and it comes up like fifteen yards short. alan goes. What are you doing. So i i have these conflicting feelings and i'm ready to slay with a three iron down the left center and he and mr mergers looks to me goes. No he's doing he was. Yeah you got got up and down from the bunker for birdie very. He was very supportive. It was. I was thrilled and i was so terrible. I had a tired swing. And i'm a bad player anyway and these guys really hit it along way anyway so so we play here to have fun like i wonder i hold her someone that i think he had fun. I think because michael and he basically play even the whole way and so so he's there yes or were you a little bit better. It doesn't matter you're right. But i mean he's he's playing with somebody who he knows is a good player and that always makes players feel good. You know they're not. They're not like kneeling down waiting for so had you guys ever met. I'd never met him. But i knew her aware him. Oh my what about steve. I did stephen but okay. Oh no they're pals they're pals long-term pal okay so then so then gets time to leave. And i'm terribly worried about the traffic. Because it's like four thirty and i've got to go from baltimore to washington six ninety five ninety five ninety five other bad names and then my caddie will shriver whose dad used to run the daily grill downtown washington right and sent us food to the show. So we'll wilson good player himself a very good player wills michael's age they have similar contacts and they know everybody must have played against each other trying to you know to pinpoint exactly where we'd played through junior long island jewish geography. Yeah you guys go crazy so we so. By the way we've we fly through the course we play in three and a half hours. Well yeah because steve smartly said. I'm a plane in a. We were one a and he made sure nobody was even six holes in front of us marine flu. We've done in three and a half by the time we leave everybody still out on the corner. Okay they're still out and they're gonna come back and they're gonna have dinner you know we're we're out and we'll says to me have you. I've got an alternative route. Ask mike show up on shopper. No those six ninety five to seventy two twenty nine. Why didn't know these roads at all. Twenty nine my neck. Seventy you're going to frederick now you know and west and it was how great was it was great. We were home in an hour. We felt so lost as we were just relying on the photo. That of course dad sees the traffic that on seventy west. We are turning off of but he goes. Where are they going to light to light bumper to bumper. Then you get on you finally get on twenty nine. Dad just goes no. They can't do this. There's traffic lights and he keeps on trying to get back over to over to ninety five and the only bad moment was when michael said. I'm really. I really don't like when you drive. I don't think you're any good. And i said i thought i was really good drawing up very conservative dr regards to speed but you stay in the middle of the right lane and then you drive far too close to people. When you're when you're coming into like a scientist side you know late breaking late breaking then he blames. Tell you what. That's what i like coming out to the bron- household were where spike. And i are. Currently on their learner's permits do a couple of rounds with them. I think completely recalibrate. How good of a driver. Your father is so we had this one other incredible treat and this was a tweet from me at one point in the locker room area. Cal ripken sitting down and kaushik and says hi tony for me. I mean i stood it as locker a number of times in my life. I know there'd be any recognition and cal ripken is your on tv. Every day. i understand. I i never really think of that and we begin. David aldridge moment. For cal. ripken. We begin to chat. And we've talked about. He was concerned about naomi osaka because he was a guy who did the stuff every single day and we chatted about that a little bit here and there and at the end of the day i saw him again at the bar and he wanted to talk more because something i had said to him about naomi osaka stirred something in him and he wanted to talk about that and we began to talk about a bunch of things including albert bell. and what. actually what a great teammate. Albert bell was even though the press. He was terrible with the press. What a great teammate.

You gave her period of get away boca's but she wanted to do was focused being a student and bland mask ball and all that stuff so it was great. So you're at. Usf you having a good career there. You're getting to the time where the draft is coming up. How do they work because the nfl they have the combine and you know they have pro days and things like that. What do they do in the nba to go and see you guys. I mean i've watched some of it on you know league pass and all that but kind of explain that to me how you look at it because you've been both the player and you've been the coach backup by thing really confused because the nba. They do they do scouts and they do put people on the curious about chip to kinda watch. You saw our scott especially when we were chicago. they're great. They spent a lot of time with a lot of detail. Either go to the games l. Before the draft. To get. But i tend to work is up. Yeah so if. I could work out three prospects. It doesn't take you a long time to figure out his. Yeah put through a couple of drills if you tested physically district character Afterwards you get the interview at. It's really revealing to find out who guys really are so it's not that tricky so get college bikes Dis- gives you an opportunity to see those kids not the kids but the second tier kits to give opportunities at the financial pay are in a competitive situation. Yeah that's true because you got to think about like If you go to alabama compared to you know alabama state in. You're looking at linebacker from each school how are you gonna compare them playing on film right so you have to do something else to compare them. So that's why they put him through all these drills that go on at the combine But in the nba. I would say like for you. How many years were you in college. You there three years or four for years. That was pretty pretty de anomaly. Yeah i got a couple of minutes. for born. they left early. You know we had guys like bill willoughby gerald dunkin's they left airway possible turley and believe me every single person outside of maybe bajic corrupt it software. You're you're you're just upgrading. The play because just physically To be able to adapt to players. Just don't change that rule. Do you think that like if you go to college. You should at least be there three years now. I think one year you're gonna find out your now. This is a different beast right now. I think you need at least a year is at least be back two years old now. I'm not a believer. That and the nineteen year old. Who's going to help lead a team to a championship right. But i do think that physical play and nineteen bootstrapped wise year. You're ready physically. But there's no way you're gonna watch it'd be able to play. Osu somebody extraordinarily special like magic birdman when he came out. Bergman was a year older than us. We were to save trapped so now you got edged twenty two years old. That's that's that's a pretty big difference. Oh came to see it now zion. Now he's been in the league two years right. he's got the draft. It's going to take a couple of years of figure it out so now that you're twenty twenty one when you're supposed graduated now you're wearing apply. Yeah so so. Tell me about okay. Now you're you're probably twenty two. You get drafted. you'd go to you. Go from california san francisco which is kind of a big town. Obviously san francisco's beautiful city. But then you go to new york. What was that like for you because that had to be a big went from. I grew up in pittsburgh. And i think it's people like mid west the tall sunday and went to washington. Dc which was all of a sudden in front of all the media and the press and annabi similar for you smell now used planes exactly from albro this place while is crazy but when it came down to it as a great Ready to go. I was waiting for the contact. You know i was raised. I could score on anybody defensively. Pretty sucky could guard anymore. That's true no so to be able to learn how to play. I think about it then. My first game was dirk dot com. Oh yeah bobble new. Was the league jack. Signal was in the league. They've caused league. Art is girl was blake. That's a bee's re rolling. He made a first couple played against the so All those guys were established guys and they were all different. It takes a while to learn out to guard because it's not like we had any help. Your honor all and probably not like you had the film to watch all them either. I mean you do. But back in the day i mean it wasn't like you could put all the clips together of win. Hey when he does a spin move. Here's what will do you know or when he faces you up. Here's way likes to do like they put all that stuff. Your film guys can give you that right on your ipad.

"To do it and you know there's a lot of homework to be done there in terms of calling your camera angles. I know i could work with all the actors and get the performances. I want but to really sit down and plan out my you know cam when i go to the over the shoulder here then. We're gonna do this raking the really sit down and do that requires a lot of work that It hasn't really challenged to do it yet from my own heart. So that's the one thing i haven't done and i don't know if i ever will but otherwise. I had a lot of opportunities to do the other things appreciate that. Allow these favorite volume flavors. Along pulling my least favorite space episode would be the great vegetable rebellion Which i think on one hand is on one hand. You almost have to call it your favorite. Because it's it's probably the best example of the worst television show ever made so it's classic in that in its awfulness and my favorite i. There's a handful of those you know. I like a lot of the first ones. Maybe returned to earth where we'll went back to earth because he really did go back to earth which is kind of cool and he really did get something that saved them all from you know doom so it was a big episode and getting back to earth was when you think about it that act so that was probably my favorite waste junkyard space. No not not at all on my top ten or top twenty now you mentioned Space cases How did that project about working. With peter david to peter david and i have worked together on several different formats in the past. We've written comic books together. And we've written short stories together. And i respect peter very much. i was taking a meeting nickelodeon to pitch a comic book. That mcgill for. And i've created called trip to the acid dog Nickelodeon and in their wisdom. They decided that wasn't exactly the right project for nickelodeon but they did say that they felt they would be very receptive to a kids in space project from me which was all they said so i. I left that meeting going okay. I can do that. I was writing the lost in space. Comic book at the time and i was hosting a series for the sci-fi channel called inside space. So i was kind of this was before babylon five and anyway my my creative juices were in space at the moment so i started working on the the idea for spaces kids in space. Whatever and i called peter right away. Because he's very prolific. And he's very funny and i like working with him a lot. He's a great guy and we just developed a you know together and went back to them and they started putting money on the table and three years later. We're on the air and we wrote the first thirteen outlined the to to the other so we wanted a quick follow up. What was it like to work with. Mark hamill on the show we'll market.

Do it's hard I think my favorite science fiction movie is the day. The earth stood still My favorite science fiction book martian. Chronicles may be must have one more question. I started in writing. Well i started I started writing songs when i was ten. You don't wanna hear those though But i started writing songs. When i was a kid. And we all take creative writing classes or you know english classes where you write short stories. I always enjoyed that. So i started writing. Everybody starts riding in your ass to right. And you're right I was doing a television series in the mid seventies universal for. Nbc called sunshine very short-lived show thirteen episodes. But we did like three movies of the week to And george eckstein. The producer of that show was very receptive to Energy from the cast. And so i ended up writing episode. One of those thirteen was my first opportunity to write for television and he was very nice. Let me do that. And i kept wanting to just kind of here. We are today for what it's worth. Ted you had one have. I been to the desert on a horse with.
